Old Montreal

. Montreal's '''New York Life Insurance Building''' (also known as the '''Quebec Bank Building''') was erected in 1887-1889. Located at Place d'Armes in what is now known as Old Montreal, it was the tallest commercial building in Montreal at the time. The first eight floors were designed for retail office space, though were quickly rented by the city's best lawyers and financiers. As such, when the clock tower was completed, the 9th and 10th floors were occupied by the largest legal library in the entire country, a gift to the tenants from the owner. thumb right The Molson Bank building on Saint Jacques Street (Image:Old Montreal 44.png) in Old Montreal.

Stretching for over two kilometres along the St-Lawrence River in Old Montreal, the '''Old Port Of Montreal''' has been the social, economic and cultural soul of Montreal ever since early French (France) fur traders used it as a trading post in 1611.

History At the Immaculate Conception Centre, a circus school begins to attract young artists interested in theatrical acrobatics. A real passion for all circus arts develops, training expands. Programming evolves as students of various backgrounds come together, united by a firm intention to become true circus artists. Very soon the Immaculate Conception Centre can no longer contain the rapid growth of the National Circus School (NCS). In 1989 the School moved to the Dalhousie station facilities in Old Montreal. The only institution to offer professional circus teaching in North America, the NCS has become one of the world's major circus schools.


South Africa

India is a major transit point for heroin coming in from the Golden Triangle (Golden Triangle (Southeast Asia)) and Golden Crescent to Europe. India is also the world's largest legal grower of opium, and experts estimate that 5–10% of the legal opium is converted into illegal heroin and 8–10% is consumed in high quantities as concentrated liquid. The pharmaceutical industry is also responsible for a lot of illegal production of mandrax, much of which is smuggled into South Africa. Diamond smuggling via South Africa is also a major criminal activity, and diamonds are also sometimes used to disguise shipments of heroin. Finally, a lot of money laundering takes place in the country, mostly through the use of the traditional hawala system, although India has criminalised money laundering as of 2003. www.loc.gov rr frd pdf-files Nats_Hospitable.pdf Nations Hospitable to Organized Crime and Terrorism - Library of Congress report thumb 250px Looking north along the beach. The slopes of Chapman's Peak rise to the right at the end of the sand. The peak in the distance is Karbonkelberg, west of Hout Bay (Image:noordhoek beach jan2005.jpg) '''Noordhoek''' is a suburb of Cape Town, South Africa, located below Chapman's Peak on the west coast of the Cape Peninsula, approximately thirty-five kilometres to the south of the city itself. The name "Noordhoek" was taken from Dutch (Dutch language) and literally means "north corner". It is best-known for its picturesque shoreline and its long, wide, sandy beach, which stretches south to the neighbouring village of Kommetjie (Kommetjie, Cape Town). Near the southern end of this beach is the wreck of the steamship "Kakapo", which ran aground about a century ago when the captain mistook Chapmans' Peak for the Cape of Good Hope and put the helm over to port. Noordhoek can be accessed either from the spectacular scenic coastal road, Chapman's Peak Drive, which leads out of Hout Bay or via the mountain road Ou Kaapse Weg which cuts through the beautiful Silvermine Nature reserve - now part of the Table Mountain National Park. Noordhoek is a small scattered community of nice houses, often with sea views and has a large horse population as riding on the long sandy beach is a great attraction. Many artists live in Noordhoek. In reconnaissance for diamond mining, '''blue ground''' refers to a layer of non-oxidized (Redox) kimberlite. Kimberlites are a class of igneous rocks commonly associated with diamond mining. Before the advent of modern geophysical probes, the ideal way to find a kimberlite pipe was to search for "yellow ground", a layer of oxidized kimberlite which is a deep tawny yellow. "Blue ground" was regarded with scorn during the South African diamond rushes, and one of the central characters in the initial diamond rush, Barney Barnato, made his fortune by purchasing digs in which the "blue ground" was all that remained. thumb right 200px Professor Barney Pityana (Image:Barney Pityana.jpg) '''Nyameko Barney Pityana''' FKC (Fellowship of King's College London) (born 7 August 1945) is a human rights lawyer and theologian in South Africa.
