Exceptions As of 2007, in most countries of the world the metric system officially dominates; but traditional units are still used in many places and industries. For example, automobile tyre pressure (Tyre-pressure gauge) is measured as psi (Pound-force per square inch) in countries such as Brazil, Argentina, Australia and Chile (Metrication in Chile) which are otherwise completely metric. Office space is often rented in traditional units, such as square foot in Hong Kong and India, ''tsubo'' in Japan or ''pyeong'' in Korea. Traditional measurements are still used in some areas: e.g., in plumbing the diameters of pipes are still measured in inches in some countries (in the United Kingdom all new pipes are metric). Automotive wheel diameters are still set as whole inch measurements (although tyre widths are measured in millimetres) and dots per inch continues to be used in describing graphical resolution in the computer industry. Television and monitor screen diameters are still commonly cited in inches in many countries; however, in Australia and South Africa, centimetres are often used for television sets, whereas CRT computer monitors and all LCD monitors are measured in inches. The only exception to the metrication process in Ireland was the pint in bars, pubs, and clubs; although alcohol sold in any other location is in metric units (usually 330 ml (canned beer), 500 ml (bottled beer), 750 ml (wine), or 1 l (spirit)). In Australia, a pint of beer was redefined to 570 ml (see Australian beer glasses (Australian_beer#Beer glasses)). In both metric and non-metric countries, racing bicycle frames are generally measured in centimetres, while mountain bicycle frames are measured in either or both. In Spain and former colonies i.e. Americas and Philippines certain pre-metric units are still used e.g. the quiñón for land measurement in the Philippines, the fanega, ferrado and atahúlla to name three used in Spain and other former possessions. The pulgada (inch) is 23 mm so 2 mm shorter than the English inch. Less successful micronations are the Kingdom of Araucania and Patagonia (1860–62) in southern Chile and Argentina; the Republic of Indian Stream (1832–35) in North America; and the Kingdom of Sedang (1888–90) in French Indochina. The oldest extant micronation to arise in modern times is the Kingdom of Redonda, founded in 1865 in the Caribbean. It failed to establish itself as a real country, but has nonetheless managed to survive into the present day as a unique literary foundation with its own king and aristocracy—although it is not without its controversies: there are presently at least four competing claimants to the Redondan throne. *1982 – A groundbreaking ceremony for the Vietnam Veterans Memorial is held in Washington, D.C.. *1991 – Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay and Paraguay sign the Treaty of Asunción, establishing Mercosur, the South Common Market. * 1991 – Five South Korean boys, nicknamed the Frog Boys, disappear while hunting for frogs and are murdered in a case that remains unsolved. thumb left 180px Elaine Paige (Image:Elaine Paige Annie Skates.jpg) The British composer Andrew Lloyd Webber, saw similar mega-success with ''Evita (Evita (musical))'', based on the life of Argentina's Eva Perón, and ''Cats (Cats (musical))'', derived from the poems of T. S. Eliot, both of which musicals originally starred Elaine Paige. Other Lloyd Webber musical successes include ''Starlight Express'', performed on roller skates; ''The Phantom of the Opera'', derived from the Gaston Leroux novel, "Le Fantôme de l'Opéra"; and ''Sunset Boulevard (Sunset Boulevard (musical))'' (from the classic film of the same name). Several of these works ran (or are still running) for decades in both New York and London. The 1990s also saw the influence of large corporations on the production of musicals. The most important has been The Walt Disney Company, which began adapting some of its animated movie musicals for the stage, such as ''Beauty and the Beast (Beauty and the Beast (musical))'' and ''The Lion King (The Lion King (musical))''. Disney also created original stage productions like ''Aida (Aida (musical))'', with music by Elton John.
