London Gateway Project is a $2.6 billion project is a major port and logistics development in Essex, aimed at dramatically improving Britain's shipping infrastructure. The company undertaking the project is DP World, a Dubai-based company. The London Gateway is a deepwater port, capable of handling essentially any ship. The project is intended to be a significant upgrade on the current Port of London facilities. The Gateway is located on the Thames, not far from both the mouth of the river and from Greater London.
There are several ways to examine the impacts of the London Gateway Project. The first is to look at the immediate impacts. Part of the impetus for the Gateway Project is that current ports in Britain tend to be congested. The current major ports on the island are Felixstowe in Suffolk, Southampton and Liverpool. The former two are relatively close to London, but not nearly…

Dickens took a dim view of London's preoccupation with materialism and commercialism -- even though he greatly empathized with the constraints that Londoners of the lower-classes felt.
Bob Cratchit, the poor but humble clerk in the office of Scrooge, serves as the representative of the impoverished but decent working class, with whom Dickens sympathized in the mid-1800s. However, like many of Dickens' characters, he is more fantastic than realistic. Dickens' idealism often had free reign (at least in his early works). Great Expectations, of course, reveals a London full of Londoners who fail to reach the heights of the humble Cratchit. But that novel also comes later in Dickens' career, and reveals a darker era in Dickens' own life, when the city of London seemed less likely to come to terms with its own corruption and spiritual decay.
In David Copperfield, the city of London is remarkably diverse and eclectic…

Beijing 2008. A viewer would be hard pressed not to like the Beijing Closing Ceremony, especially if they were a fan of fireworks. When the Olympic athletes wave goodbyes to the audience, it is always jubilant and often free-form -- a favorite was two middle-easterners in their formal white robes standing stark-still and modestly waving their country flags, whilst all around them, athletes from other countries cavorted with abandon. The "tower of Babel" idea was interesting and was, at least, easier to view than other performances on the flat arena floor. Again, though the detail of what was happening on the tower was easily lost.

To Steele, this idle and pleasurable time is a part of personal and emotional growth. To be sure, the text in question is driven by the era's emphasis on Literary Romanticism, where self-discovery is considered among the highest pursuits.

The research was undertaken to study the link between inequality and depravity, poverty and crime in the housing structures of London. The study found that there is wide spread economic disparity in London. This divide is evident in the living styles and the types of housing structures that people live in. The council or housing estates of the city are primarily the residences of the lower income families. This depravity among social classes creates strain within the residents many of whom resort to antisocial activities. Being influenced by socio-economic factors, some individuals also resort to crime. Thus, the estranged council and housing estates that are home to the lower economic demographics have turned into high-crime areas.

In "London," the most noticeable languages are how he uses repetition, connotation as well as multiple meanings of words. His work choice alone indicates that Blake never picked any words with good connotations which are always negative, for example he uses the word harlot instead of something like courtesan, and plagues instead of sickness (Blake, 2013).
Conversely, repetition was significant in revealing the real meaning of his poem. For example in the first and second lines; "I wander through each chartered street, / Near where the chartered Thames does flow," the word chartered is repeated twice in the first stanza. epetition of the words makes the reader to notice it as he/she considers its implications in the poem. In contrast, the word chartered can be said to have more than one meaning, hence it may be significant in considering whether if this is the reason as to why it has…

London Congestion Charge
Introduction to the Congestion Charge
Around the world, the population is growing at a rapid rate, making it difficult to manage a lot of things that the governments didn't have to worry about perhaps thirty years ago. A new scheme has been introduced in London to manage the traffic congestion. Under this scheme motorists are obliged to pay £5 everyday. The strength of this system lies in the fact that it helps reduce traffic, allowing journeys and delivery times to be more reliable and simultaneously helping top raise millions each week that…

nineteenth century architecture of Saint Pancras Station from the vantage of the early twenty-first century, the seeming proud grandeur of the design can blind us to the strange and difficult reception that this architecture had on contemporary critics. In the 1870s, the legendary Victorian art critic John uskin is reported to have remarked "At Paddington station I felt as if in hell" (Pearce 63). Presumably uskin was alluding to the vast urban architecture of Milton's depiction of the city of Pandemonium built in hell by the fallen angels of Paradise Lost -- a magnificent but morally wicked architectural achievement, and the reason why earlier in the Industrial evolution, Blake had inveighed against the "dark Satanic mills" which had a monumental grandeur that served a wicked purpose. But to enter Saint Pancras Station in 2015 may very well have the opposite effect: the building feels like a cathedral built not to…

permissive attitude towards London sailor-town exist during the 1850-1860, and how did it change during the 1900-1910?
The main Theories Fronted
Although the marine community came from diverse backgrounds, the seafarers ashore had acquired a debauched image long before the 16th Century. The seafarers have won the appraisal of researchers for their role since then. According to Lee[footnoteef:1], seafarers had delinked themselves from the usual expected bonds and roles in society as otherwise expected of all humans. They were believed to be vulnerable to being misled and were believed to be strangers to the civilized, polite norms of contemporary human decorum. Once seafarers went ashore, they were inclined to being irresponsible beings. They could engage in drunkenness as of habit. They practiced little restraint in general. The seafarers most likely committed many other ills while at sea. The lack of societal control that normally provides a steadying influence meant that…

In the London Baptist Confession of Faith of 1644, we see a confession of faith statement that is much closer to that of what modern day Baptists would find familiar. ith the coming and continuance of the English Civil ar, Baptists saw the need and took the opportunity to write down their own statement of faith. The document was written and signed by seven separate congregations that collaborated to write the document. The document's purpose was to differentiate the beliefs of the Particular Baptists from the General Baptists. This was to formally define the beliefs of the Particular Baptists as opposed to the General Baptists. hile not detailed, it was very clearly Calvinistic in tone.

London restaurant might change over the next ten years?
Background of recent changes
To appreciate the amount of change that can occur within the London restaurant industry over the next ten years and into the future, one must take a brief breath and pause to consider how far the industry has come in the past ten years. Ten years ago today, would anyone have thought that London restaurants would be exporting chefs to America to star in their own series on the American Food Network? Jamie Oliver's success alone as a brand name is testimony to how much the food industry has changed, shifted, and grown. Moreover, the Naked Chef's success as a television empire and reality TV show guru points to the increasing sexiness of food, specifically British food in the eyes of the world as well as the average British patron of the hospitality industry within London itself.…
Sea olf" by Jack London. Discussed is the transformation of the character Humphrey Van aden, physically, psychologically and philosophically. These traits are compared from the beginning of the story to the end. Paper includes quotes from book that describe transformation.
Jack London's "Sea olf" was first published in 1904. London's story is a vivid tale of seal hunters on the high seas aboard a schooner called Ghost., who rescue a lone survivor from a ferryboat accident, Humphrey Van eyden. A gentleman scholar and literary critic, Van eyden's experience aboard the schooner becomes of nightmare of shock and terror. The captain of the vessel is olf Larsen, the most savage, brutal, ruthless character imaginable. Van eyden all too soon discovers that there is nothing sacred or humane in the captain's character. London uses the scholar's ordeal at the hands of Larsen to create his powerful and unforgettable themes of…

Later, Eden learns the truth, and begins to despise the society that he worked so hard to join. He becomes despondent because his dreams came true and he found he did not want them after all.

hat is a menu? Simply a list, one might surmise from a basic definition of the word. Simply a written listing of a particular eating establishment's offerings, correct? But the British as a people, it has been alleged by many a foreign observer (and indeed, many a dyspeptic native writer), are an overly verbose and verbal nation, obsessed with the written word and what it 'says' about them as a people and as individuals. Thus, England as a nation may be excused for attaching importance overmuch to the importance of such a listings of offerings and the impression such a listing conveys about an establishment.

The Sea olf" is one of Jack London's most famous books, and one of the first of over 50 books he would write. In this novel, he gives the reader a glimpse at the many sides of human nature, from the cruelty and heartlessness of the captain, to the naivete and kindness of the main character, Humphrey Van eyden, called "Hump" by the captain and crew. He is a gentleman in the middle of some of the most crass and unappealing people he has ever met.

How the Chimney-sweeper's cry

It also shows how the Natives did not fear their fate.
The story also forces the reader to confront his or her own feelings about death and dying. Some might find the old man's fate barbaric, to be left alone with a pack of wolves to die, but he does not suffer from that worry, he knows he has lived a good life, and that life comes to an end for everyone. It is interesting that he attempts to fight the wolves, and then simply accepts his fate; it is a lesson for the reader that death is not to be feared.
In conclusion, this story is perfect for a sophomore American literature class because London is a representative and talented American writer, he writes of Native American culture with great detail, and the story makes the reader think about death and dying.

He is also adrift intellectually, examining books randomly he does not yet have the background to read and understand, intimidated by Ruth's superior education. London says about Eden at this time, "it seemed that the room was lifting, heeling, and plunging like a ship upon the sea" (Chapter 7, p. 1). Frustrated, he is like a sailor caught in a storm before he has learned how to sail. He knows he is smart enough to understand the books he has chosen but that his education has great gaps in it. Thus his quest for a middle class life is intellectual as well as social, financial and professional.

Kelo vs. New London
There are two dissenting opinions written concerning the Kelo vs. New London case; one written by Justice O'Connor and the second one written by Justice Thomas. Each of these dissenting opinions offers a unique look at why the court should have found for Kelo instead of against Kelo. This case, like many cases, hinges on the interpretation of the Constitution. Interpreting the Constitution, for the most part, involves a comprehension and understanding of what exactly the Founding Fathers meant when they wrote the Document. In this case the comprehension and understanding concerns the use of the phrase "public use."
A 2005 law review article states "the confusion in the lower courts arises from takings that do not directly achieve the government's purpose -- takings that involve a separate, unregulated private party to whom the property flows" (Christensen, 2005, p. 1669). The real issue, according to Trent…

The fear and the misery cannot be escaped. The image here is of a town brimming with people and yet they are alienated and oppressed.
One of the most powerful literary techniques Blake employs in the poem is irony. In the beginning of the poem, after Blake introduces the notion of misery, he follows it with the notion of freedom. Those in the city are no doubt free but they are still miserable and crying out for help. Here we see that freedom is not only going to mean that things are working out well. Indeed, free societies experiences tragedy though that is a concept we rarely choose to associate with freedom. It is also important to note that this misery stems from "the mind-forged manacles" (8) of the people. This tells us that much of the suffering that these people are experiencing is self-inflicted. This idea forces the reader…

U.S. Supreme Court: Kelo v. New London (2005)
Supreme Court case Kelo v. City of New London involved the issue of eminent domain which is granted to governmental bodies including federal, state and local governmental bodies by the Fifth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution which means that the government is authorized to take land that is privately owned if the land is to be used by the public and the owner is paid a fair price for the land or what is referred to as 'just compensation'. Prior to Kelo v. City of New London the power of eminent domain was typically exercised by cities for acquisition of facilities that were clearly intended for public use such as schools, bridges or freeways.

Human Resources: London, Here We Come! SLP
Our company is planning an expansion of our IT services to offices in London. The company's move to London will entail special considerations for HR employees and IT employees. While U.S. expatriates, British host country nationals and Canadian third country nationals can all be considered for HR positions, the company will probably be best served by U.S. nd British employees. Furthermore, employees from all 3 countries can be considered for the IT positions; however, quite a few of the candidates will apparently arise from the U.S. nd Canada. Nevertheless, for the reality and appearance of fairness, candidates from all 3 nations will be openly considered for HR and IT employment.
HR staff needed in London: expatriate employees, host country nationals, and/or third country nationals?
HR staffing in London could benefit from expatriate employees, host country nationals and third country nationals (deleye, 2011).…
At least initially, staffing of London with IT employees could follow the same basic ideas as HR staffing: U.S. expatriates, British host nationals and Canadian third country nationals could all be used; however, the Canadian third country nationals would be the most expendable due to the U.S. And British shared language and other cultural similarities. Staffing itself could prove problematic within Britain, as Britain is traditionally deemed "liberal" and "individualistic," with poor public training considered less effective and producing a smaller pool of highly skilled workers (Adeleye, 2011). The sheer number of IT employees required -- 70 full-time and 50 part-time IT employees -- may simply not be available in Britain's limited pool. Consequently, recruitment may ultimately need to heavily rely on U.S. And Canadian IT candidates.
Beyond the probable use of heavily U.S. And Canadian filled talent pools and the necessity of excellent IT skills, any candidates should show the desired knowledge, skills and abilities of:
Evolution in efore Adam
Jack London was, in keeping with his time, fascinated with the emerging Theory of Evolution. This is evident in a number of his works, but no more so than in efore Adam. In this novella London places evolution in a central role, not simply choosing to highlight it in a passage here and there, as he does in Daughter of the Snows and White Fang, but by using it to supply the central conflict and to propel the narrative forward. As the narrator himself says in the opening chapters, "Evolution was the key. It gave the explanation, gave sanity to the pranks of this atavistic brain of mine that, modern and normal, harked back to a past so remote as to be contemporaneous with the raw beginnings of mankind."
The words 'atavist' and 'atavistic' are used repeatedly throughout the text. These words, nearly foreign to us…

Christie's Education Application
Ultimately, there are so many reasons for applying to Christie's Education. After all, it is a chance of a lifetime. First and foremost, the program is definitely unparalleled, with some of the best academic programs and faculty. Christie's is located in the vibrant cultural hub of London, which I hope will be a very fruitful environment for my own talents and inspirations to flourish. I find myself with a strong yearning for academic rigor. Both my heart and mind need stimulation, and a clear challenge that will help mold my own skills and abilities as I evolve as a thinker, but also as a strong art enthusiast. I have an unbridled passion for art and for building a strong education that will provide a strong foundation for me to reach all of my goals and aspirations in this short life we live.
Additionally, I have a deep…
He is willing and able to work always and though Skeet and Nig are also always willing to work for John, it is only Buck who seems genuinely happy and ready to do the work. Buck is much different than the other dogs when it comes to attention as well. "Unlike Skeet, who was won't to shove her nose under Thornton's hand and nudge till petted, or Nig, who would stalk up and rest his great head on Thornton's knee, Buck was content to adore at a distance" (91-92).
Buck is able to turn from a wild beast into a tame and loving animal and it is because of John that Buck is able to do this. It can be gathered that John is a bit of a wild beast himself. Buck's connection to John is very primitive; though he feels and hears the call of the wild, he does…

JP Kenny (JPK) is a London-based company specialising in the engineering design of subsea pipelines; it offers a number of design solutions including project management to clients within the oil and gas industry.
This report includes an analysis of the Human Resource department and the role they play within the organisation and an evaluation of JPK's performance management of its employees. It takes a look at the human resource department and the role managers play in the performance appraisal system using different theories to analyse the methods used in order to improve the effectiveness of the process, and identifies areas of the process that are "failing" with recommendations for improvement.

According to the Council of Mortgage Lenders, "In the sustainable communities plan the government has linked use of MMC with the drive to boost housing supply, thus further raising the salience of the issue for lenders and other stakeholders. The Housing Corporation has stated that 25% of all new grant-aided construction by housing associations should be by MMC" (MMC 2010, 3).
In sum, modern methods of construction allow developers to "create eco friendly homes, reducing the amount of pollutants released into the atmosphere and homeowners' utility bills" (Lilley 2007). For instance, a recent report from Dixon (2006) notes that, "The innovative Quad at the Dunes development at Hadston, opposite Druridge Bay, offers buyers not only a two-bedroom home for just pounds 128,000, but also a look at one of the possible futures for new home building" (25). The innovative approach that allows for this cost efficiency is MMC. According to…

UK resilience website and the London preparedness website both offer informative guidelines on what risks and threats face the country/city and how people can prepare for them. For example, on the UK Resilience site, a document entitled "Preparing for emergencies" can be downloaded. It addresses the risks that one should plan for, how to prepare for emergencies, how to prepare one's business for emergencies, and how to prepare one's community for emergencies. It is a succinct and cohesive guide because it does not just address one's own self or home but also one's workplace and one's community, which gives a great deal of comfort to users of the site as they can feel that they are not only safeguarding their own families but their own neighborhoods as well, creating the impression that there is strength in unity, numbers and people working together.

ABC London Events Co. will have many considerations to make before deciding on whether to host an event. One of the initial decisions will undoubtedly be financial as for-profit event management companies must return an adequate return to their investors. However, once the business case for the event is made, this is only the beginning and there are many subsequent decisions to be made. The planning phase of any event is arguably the most important aspect of hosting an effective event. There are many different objectives that events can address and planning for different types of events can take different approaches. This analysis will focus on cultural and sporting events and discuss various considerations that an event manager will have to make in order for the event to be a success.

Those two models are problem-oriented policing and intelligence-led policing. This essay will compare and contrast the two models and see if they are compatible with each other or if one model outperforms the other.
Problem-oriented policing (POP) is vastly different from intelligence-led policing (ILP). Problem-oriented policing for example has roots in the United States whereas intelligence-led policing has British roots. POP has been used by American police officers as a means of developing strategies that minimize and avert crime. Under the model, there are expectations for the police to systematically examine issues within a community, search for potential solutions, and assess the effect of such efforts (Braga, 2010).
POP allows police to attempt to alter any underlying condition within…

The objective of this study is to become familiar with London as a fashion capital and opportunities for fashion retailing in London including the wide range of commercial outlets from the high street store to the fashion concept store.
This study will examine the flagship stores in London as well as the smaller boutiques in order to express an understanding of how shopping is contextualized in London.

Conspiracy theory or terrorism? -- The 2012 London Olympics
There has been a lot of controversy in the recent years regarding conspiracies and how some of the world's most influential individuals are actively engaged in a plot to exploit mankind. False flag attacks are believed to be attempts performed by these individuals with the purpose of justifying their intervention in particular areas that they are interested in. This year's London Olympics represents one of the most intriguing opportunities for certain actors to put their strategies into work, considering that the world's attention is focused on the event and that the number of people present there would surely draw significant responsiveness from an international public concerned in penalizing individuals and groups…

Deepest Impression, Describe Work Influenced Explain
Although there was a good deal of writers that I read in this particular class, I would have to say that the one who made the deepest impression on me was Jack London. Specifically, I found myself enthralled by London's short story/essay entitled "The Law of Life." There were numerous facets of this story that were captivating. One of the most essential of these was the profound realness that is everywhere within this tale. I also was fond of the characters. I have always liked Native Americans and Eskimos, and it was pretty pleasurable to read a short story devoted to them and their way of life. Due to these reasons and others, I am quite sure that my reading of this tale will stay with me for some time, and perhaps even influence the way I write and other works of fiction that…
Other ranks have their areas of responsibility and control covering a geographic area, a detective division, or a specialized division (Sworn Police Officer Class Titles and Job Descriptions, 2006).
The internal structure of the two departments is not that different, while the areas covered and the number of officers in each department varies greatly. The LAPD covers more territory and does so with a smaller force, also relying more on the patrol car than the officer on a beat than is true in London (or in many other American cities, for that matter). The LAPD has also been characterized as a more paramilitary organization than many police departments, and this would mean more than the Metropolitan Police as well. Of course, another major difference generally known is that the police in London do not carry guns as a rule (except under special circumstances), while the Los Angeles police do carry…

g. Chunnel), take upwards of 1.5 to 2 decades to adequately plan and construct. Thus, no is the time to look forward to the future of railway in Britain and invest in the possible. This will, in fact, protect the next two generations from being saddled with even higher debt and potentially a lower rate of benefits (Department of Transport 2009).
However, other research shows that the government's economic case is unsound because it depends on rates of return that are implausible as well as unproven synergies of growth demands created by the railway itself (e.g. because the railway is high-speed, more people will choose to use it). Less expensive solutions are available through alternative transport systems, and can likely be implemented more quickly, thus relieving congestion and serious urban problems now, rather than in years or decades. This is surmised by looking at the transportation trends over the past…

The Bastille -- a medieval era tower building that was used as a prison -- was set ablaze all day yesterday.

The rapid expansion of American manufacturing power was not due to purely domestic circumstances. Post-war, because the American economy was so strong relative to Europe and Japan, America had a wide array of venues in which to sell its products. This is why the postwar era is often called a kind of Golden Age of American manufacturing. America dominated all major industries and the dollar was the world standard of currency. However, as Fordist philosophies gradually began to be adopted by other nations, and with the growing prosperity of Japan and Europe, high wages began to have an unfavorable impact upon the prices of American consumer goods.
During the 1970s, the rapid increase of oil prices and the fall of the American dollar created recessionary conditions in the U.S. that proved to be hard to change. Conventional Keynesian thinking suggested that prices fall during a recession. Consumers stop buying for…

The Modern Museum of Art (MoMA) in New York City and Tate Modern in London have a number of major features in common that help to define the visitor's experience. Perhaps most importantly, both are considered among the most important collections in the world and both institutions are highly regarded not just for their conservation of art but for the usability of their facilities and the considerable educational, informational, cultural and recreational resources contained there within. hat strikes one as most compelling about both collections is that they trace their respective origins to the efforts of extremely wealthy philanthropists but that each offers a collection rife with examples of resistance, protest and rejection of established values. Indeed, this is perhaps the most unifying condition defining modern art in evidence at both sites.

The similarities in the way the two writers think and act are not something that can be ignored. It becomes important when the reader begins to detail the way the story illustrates the theory by Nietzsche about religion and man's need to have it. As the story unfolds the reader will see that Martin approaches Ruth, her family and their lifestyle much the same way London, through Nietzsche's theory approaches the idea of religion.
Martin, in the story gives up everything to pursue his dream as a writer as did London in the life he carved out for himself. The success comes with a price both in the book and in real life. There was even speculation that London killed himself. This theory believes that his Martin Eden was his swan song of sorts because it gave warning that he was going to do himself in. While this theory has been largely laid to rest it does increase the similarities between the fictional and the real life character.

I like to read the introductory material for books before diving in. It gives one a hint of the author's personal thinking, motivations, and other insights. In this preface the authors explain how the book was put together, with the input from individuals as well as corporate involvement, including 'focus' or discussion groups addressing the topic of 'Continuous Learning: what does it mean?'.
I found this statement about the rapidity of ongoing change to be thought-provoking: 'These changes raise the potential of rewards for those with insight' (Sessa & London, 2006: ix). The authors define learning for each of the three categories (individual, group, and organization), and talk about its importance. They also state that their purpose is…

S. Constitution as offering much protection but instead view it as being the responsibility of the states to provide protection for private property owners. In the event that the courts "...continue to abdicate their role as the protector of individuals rights, then big government and powerful corporations will continue to run roughshod over the property interest of small landowners." (Liles, 2006, p.372)
Liles holds that the legislature being allowed a leeway that is so constitutionally broad in defining the protections afforded to private property effectively "...defies the necessary checks and balances implicit in our system of government." (p.372) Part of the problem appears to be that the definition applied to 'public use' has become quite lenient over the years and while it in the beginning meant that "the public must own property" it now has been construed to mean that "private parties can own the land so long as the…

How the airport management activities will have to adapt to the low cost airline community (e.g. charges structure)?
The management of London Southend will have to be more accommodating to LCCs. This is because; these carriers have a choice of airports that they can fly into. To adapt to these new realities, executives will have to offer a superior product with lower costs. The way that this can be achieved is to have lower fees in comparison with other facilities. Then, implement a program of continually updating and improving upon the physical plant. Once this occurs, is when the airlines will see the economic benefits of using London Southend vs. others.
At the same time, the management structure will have to become more responsive. This means that there must be a clear channel of communication between: Stobart Air and Stobart. The way that this can be achieved is to offer…

management, in particular the management of mega events. It also delves deeply into the positives and negatives of the London Olympic Games and the 2006 orld Cup events in Germany. Those who manage mega events have an enormous task and an almost impossible responsibility to the public, to those participating in the events, and to the countries where mega events take place. Those issues and more are covered in this paper.
Theoretically review the key aspects of event management
Form and Function
Theoretically an event is a kind of convergence, according to Professor Donald Getz (School of Tourism, The University of Queensland); it is a blending of forms and functions, and those in turn converge into a worthwhile experience for the tourist / participant. Getz uses two huge events to illustrate how form and function come together to produce a grand experience for the attendee. He points to the 2012…

ather than functioning solely as a sporting event, the '84 Summer Games delivered a broader scope of entertainment never before seen or attempted. The event encompassed entertainment not only in the form of sporting competition, but also in music and arts (Masterman, 2004). It is now understood that special events possess a powerful role in the society.
2012 Olympic closing ceremony will be a mega event as it will have a large effect on the entire economy of the UK. The event is going to get huge media coverage that is why it is important to adopt right marketing strategy for this event.
Issues of human resource management
Human resource management is vey important aspect of this grand event. The better evetn mangers and event management organizations understand the labor force and employs hired for the event the better resources can be allocated to effective recruitment and retaining strategies.
