Quebec City

5, 2010 In the May 2, 2011, election, Layton led the NDP to 103 seats, more than double its previous high. This was also enough to make the NDP the Official Opposition in the Commons for the first time ever. The NDP gains were partly due to a major surge in Quebec as the party won 59 of the province's 75 seats, dominating Montreal and sweeping Quebec City and the Outaouais, although the NDP also won more seats than any other opposition party in the rest of Canada. The NDP had gone into the election with only one seat in Quebec, that of Mulcair, and had won but a single seat in the province historically (Phil Edmonston in a 1990 by-election). Many of these gains came at the expense of the Bloc, which was reduced to a four-seat rump without official party status in Parliament. *

Maurois was the son of Ernest Herzog, a Jewish textile manufacturer, and Alice (Lévy-Rueff) Herzog. His family had fled Alsace after the Franco-Prussian War of 1870–1871 and took refuge in Normandy, where they owned a woollen mill at Elbeuf. Plugge was a radio enthusiast and a pioneer of long motoring holidays on the European continent. There he would collect the schedules of radio stations he visited and sell them to the BBC to publish in ''Radio Times'' and other magazines such as ''Wireless World''. It was on one such journey that he stopped for coffee at the Café Colonne in the Place Thiers (now the Place Général de Gaulle (Charles de Gaulle)) in the Normandy coastal village of Fécamp. There, he asked the café owner what there was to see in the town, and was told that a young member of the Le Grand family – which owned the town's Benedictine distillery – had a small radio transmitter behind a piano in his house, and that a local cobbler's business had increased after a broadcast mentioned his name. thumb right 100px Cartesian planetary vortices, ''Physica Particularis'', 1754.

On June 1, 1944, the battalion was located near Beauvais, north-west of Paris, of its 45 Tigers, 37 were operational and eight more in repair. With D-Day landings on June 6 it was ordered to Normandy where it arrived despite heavy aerial bombardment on June 12. After weeks of heavy fighting, most famously at the Battle of Villers-Bocage, by July 5 the battalion had lost 15 of its 45 Tigers. As soon as satisfactory landing grounds were available in the Normandy beachhead (Normandy), the 440th shuttled C-47s to and from France, often evacuating wounded. In 1180, he left Ireland for the last time, taking with him a son of Ua Conchobair's as a hostage to Henry. He meant to admonish Henry for incursions against Ua Conchobair, contrary to the Treaty of Windsor. After a stay at the Monastery of Abingdon (Abingdon, Oxfordshire) south of Oxford - necessitated by a closure of the ports - he landed at Le Tréport, Normandy, at a cove named after him, Saint-Laurent. He fell ill and was conveyed to St. Victor's Abbey at Eu (Eu, Seine-Maritime). Mortally ill, it was suggested that he should make his will, to which he replied: ''"God knows, I have not a penny under the sun to leave anyone."'' His last thoughts were of his people in Dublin: ''"Alas, you poor, foolish people, what will you do now? Who will take care of you in your trouble? Who will help you?"''

The reconstituted unit returned to France in late July 1944 as a part of the 10th Armoured Cavalry Brigade, 1st (Polish) Armoured Division. (Polish 1st Armoured Division) . Its most memorable action in Normandy being it first, one fought at Saint-Aignan on 8 August 1944; a battle which is still commemorated annually by the regiment. Apart from the fishermen and the local fish traders, merchants from Lübeck and other Hanseatic towns, as well as from England, Scotland, Flanders and Normandy, came to the herring market to buy and sell herring, but also to trade in other goods with the Scandinavian merchants, landowners and peasants.

A wide variety of goods were traded, among them horses, butter, iron, tar, grain (cereal) and handicraft products from the North, Prussia, and Livonia. '''La soule''', also known as '''choule''', is a traditional team sport that originated in Normandy and Picardy. The ball, called a ''soule'', could be solid or hollow and made of either wood or leather. Leather balls would be filled with hay, bran, horse hair or moss. Sometimes the balls had woolen pompons. http: www.doullens.org Luc-Decroix jeuxpicards images choule10cuir.jpg *A Normandy festival is held in Jersey every year, normally involving some re-enactment of la soule.

Jongkind returned to live in Rotterdam in 1855, and remained there until 1860. Back in Paris, in 1861 he rented a studio on the rue de Chevreuse in Montparnasse where some of his paintings began to show glimpses of the Impressionist (Impressionism) style to come. In 1862 he met in Normandy with some of his artist friends, such as Alfred Sisley and Eugene Boudin, the young Claude Monet who later referred to Jongkind as "...a quiet man with such a talent that is beyond words." The following year Jongkind exhibited at the first Salon des Refusés. Despite several successes, in another of his down periods the Impressionist group did not accept his work for their first exhibition in 1874. JeapBaptiste Le Moyne''' was the son of Charles le Moyne (Charles le Moyne de Longueuil et de Châteauguay), born in Longueil (Longueil, Seine-Maritime), near Dieppe (Dieppe, France) and Catherine Primot (known as Catherine Thierry too), born in Rouen, both cities in the Province of Normandy. Charles le Moyne established his family in the settlement of Ville-Marie (Fort Ville-Marie) (present day Montreal) at an early age and had fourteen children total. At the age of seventeen, Bienville joined his brother Iberville on an expedition to establish the colony of Louisiana. Bienville Gulf of Mexico coastline, discovering the Chandeleur Islands off the coast of Louisiana as well as Cat Island (Cat Island (Mississippi)) and Ship Island (Ship Island (Mississippi)) off the coast of what is now the state of Mississippi before moving westward to sail up the mouth of the Mississippi River. Eventually the expedition ventured all the way to what is now Baton Rouge and False River (False River (Louisiana)). Before heading back to France, Iberville established the first settlement of the Louisiana colony, in April 1699 as Fort Maurepas or Old Biloxi (at present-day Ocean Springs, Mississippi), and appointed Sauvolle de la Villantry (Sauvolle) as the governor with Bienville as Lieutenant and second in command. He was buried in the Soissons family tomb at the ''Chartreuse de Bourbon-lez-Gaillon'' in Gaillon, in the French province of Normandy. The county of Soissons was passed onto his only surviving sister Marie de Bourbon (Marie de Bourbon, Countess of Soissons), Princess of Carignano and wife of Thomas Francis of Savoy (Thomas Francis, Prince of Carignano), a famous general. He had been inducted into the Order of the Holy Spirit in 1585 by Henry III (Henry III of France). Henry IV made him ''Grand mâitre (Grand Master of France)'' of the royal household and governor of the province (provinces of France) of Brittany in 1589. In 1602 he was made governor of the Dauphiné, and of Normandy in 1610, in which year he was also present at the coronation of Louis XIII (Louis XIII of France). After Henry's death later that year, Soissons opposed the policies of his widow, the queen regent Marie de Médicis. In 1612 Samuel de Champlain convinced Charles to obtain the office of Lieutenant-General from King Louis XIII, which he did. Origins The 7th Army was activated in Stuttgart on August 25, 1939 with General Friedrich Dollmann in command. At the outbreak of the war, the 7th Army defended the German border and manned the Westwall in the Upper Rhine region. At the start of the Campaign in the West (Battle of France) in 1940, the 7th Army was part of General Wilhelm Ritter von Leeb's Army Group C. On 14 June 1940, Army Group C attacked the Maginot Line after it had been cut off by armored units of the XXXXI Panzer Corps. Lead elements of the 7th Army reached the area in front of Colmar and later pursued parts of the French 2nd Army Group into Lorraine (Lorraine (region)). At the conclusion of the campaign, the 7th Army was in eastern France. From July 1940 until April 1941, the 7th Army guarded a region of the coast in southwestern France. From 18 April 1941, the 7th Army was responsible for coastal defense in Brittany and Normandy. feldgrau.com By mid-1944, the 7th Army was part of Erwin Rommel's Army Group B. Vitré, a sub-prefecture until 1926, is the seat of a canton of around 16,712 inhabitants (2009). It lies on the edge of Brittany, near Normandy, Maine (Maine (province of France)), and Anjou. The town has been designated a ''ville d'art et d'histoire'', a town of artistic and historic significance, by the Ministry of Culture (Minister of Culture (France)) in recognition of its rich cultural inheritance. Vitré is the 37th French city with the most historic buildings and has 14% of the historical monuments of the department. * Marseille (Olympique de Marseille) vs Saint-Étienne (AS Saint-Étienne) and ''Most achieving clubs'' – Old Rivalry.

On September 5 most of the Dutch thought the liberation would be very soon; the day is known as ''Dolle Dinsdag'' (Mad Tuesday). On September 17 a daring operation, Operation Market Garden, was staged to make a quick incursion into the southern Netherlands and capture bridges across the three main rivers. The bridge at Arnhem, across the Rhine, could however not be captured. The part south of the rivers was liberated in the period September - November 1944. However, for most of the country people would have to wait until May 1945. Mainly through the influence of Brongniart he turned his attention to geology. During the years 1816-1819 he took advantage of the necessity of accompanying his associate Philippe de Girard, who was seekling out a site for establishing a textile mill near Vienna, by making a special study of the Viennese Basin, where he pointed out for the first time the presence of Tertiary strata like those of the Paris Basin (Paris Basin (geology)), but which included a series of later date. His next work (1821) was an essay on the geology of parts of Normandy, with special reference to the "Secondary"—or Mesozoic— strata, which he compared with those of southern England; in this he had the collaboration of Charles Lyell. Lester has homes in Hastings and Wednesbury. For nearly 10 years he lived aboard a 60-foot traditional stern canal boat (narrowboat) (which he nicknamed ''The Blue Pig'') during the week, while presenting his show from the BBC's Pebble Mill Studios and then The Mailbox in Birmingham. He also has a restored cottage as a third home in the Normandy region of France. Painter beginnings His second career as an artist started while he was a prisoner during World War II. While there, he passed the time sketching portraits of his fellow prisoners, and was shortly asked to do the same by guards, as well as the Commandant of the camp. His escape from prison led him back to Paris where he made his living as a peripatetic artist, in the evenings going from one café to another, drawing portraits of German soldiers, sailors, airmen of all ranks, charging but a few francs each. He plied his trade not only in Paris but traveled to the Normandy coast and Le Havre - often on bicycle. All the portraits he executed during this time had to be signed with the name ''Juvee''. By the time of Germany's defeat, Tabaud had executed over 5,000 portraits between 1942 and 1944. Gilmour directed twenty-six episodes of Allsorts continuing an interest in children's reading. With ''Three Bob for D-Day'', he went on the fortieth anniversary of D-Day to Normandy with a coach full of Liverpool riflemen to make two films. He made ''Working'' in a large psychiatric hospital. ''Playing'' is a film on children's street songs. He directed an edition of ''World in Action'', the story being, the less you earn the higher a proportion goes in tax. The '''Sompting Abbotts''' building, designed by Philip Charles Hardwick and completed in 1856, is a school. However this has been the site of one of Sompting's manor houses since Norman times, when it was owned by the abbot of Fécamp in Normandy, and later owned by the abbott of Syon Abbey in Middlesex. In 1248 the abbott of Fecamp had a prison in the village. Queen Caroline (Queen Caroline Amelia Augusta), consort of King George IV (George IV of the United Kingdom) stayed at Sompting Abbotts in 1814 on her way across the English Channel to the Continent. These bold achievements brought him two awards of the Legion of Merit. In November 1943, he took command of the 11th Amphibious Force in the United Kingdom, earning the Army's Distinguished Service Medal (Distinguished Service Medal (Army)) for his superb leadership of this amphibious Force "O" which landed and so effectively supported the Army V Corps (V Corps (United States)) on the Omaha Beach sector off the coast of Normandy in June 1944. He received a second Navy Distinguished Service Medal for command of the Southern Attack Force (Task Force 55) during the Okinawa campaign (Battle of Okinawa). In October 1945, he became Commander Amphibious Force, Pacific Fleet (United States Pacific Fleet), receiving the rank of Vice Admiral a few months later. The Friesekes' only child, daughter Frances, was born in 1914. In 1920 Frieseke and his family moved to a farm in Le Mesnil-sur-Blangy, Normandy. His art of this period concentrated on female figures, particularly nudes. While developing a more modern style, he included historical and contemporary references. He used a darker color palette and limited his use of surface patterns. In these works, his interest in chiaroscuro may be discerned. Related phrases Blason love or complaint is a rejection of Petrarchan love, which was first seen in the works of Francesco Petrarca in the fourteenth century. The term ''Blason populaire'' is a phrase in which one culture or ethnic group increases its own self-esteem by belittling others eg. Samuel Johnson's description that "The noblest prospect which a Scotsman ever sees, is the high road that leads him to England!". This term originated from Alfred Canel's travelogue ''Blason Populaire de la Normandie'' (1859), in which people from Normandy boasted about themselves while sneering at other regions. ''Blason populaire de la Normandie, comprenant les proverbes, sobriquets ou dictons relatifs à cette province'', Alfred Canel, 1859, on Google books '''Borden''' is a village situated immediately south west of Sittingbourne, Kent, from which it is separated by a small area of rural land. The history of the name is questioned. It may be derived from ''bor'' (hill) and then either from ''denu'' (valley) or ''denn'' (woodland pasture). It may also derive from "boar" "den", as it was known that the wild animals were found in the surrounding areas. Borden was first recorded in the twelfth century as ''Bordena''. It may also stem from the settlement there of the de Bourdon (now Borden) family which came from Bourdannay, in Normandy, France with William the Conqueror in 1066. A similar contention surrounds the origin of the surname, so perhaps there lies the connection. death_date Commons:Normandie
