Visby

church influence of Bishop Bo Giertz has been remarkable especially among Pietists. The early high church movement caused the emergence of retreat centres, more frequent celebration of the Mass, and lively historical-critical study of Holy Scriptures. The strong social passion of the Catholic Movement within Church of England never took root in the same way in Sweden. ''The Oxford Movement as Received in Sweden'' by Oloph Bexell. The Church Coalition for Bible and Confession - The London Conference 2006 The ordination of women as clergy began in 1958, and caused a split within the Swedish high church party. One branch with liberal leanings accepted this step whilst the other did not. Later, one of the leading figures of the high church movement was Bishop emeritus Bertil Gärtner who was against the ordination of women. He was successor to Bo Giertz as bishop of Gothenburg. He died in 2009. His role in the High Church movement fell on Bishop emeritus Biörn Fjärstedt, the former bishop of Visby. The ''Svensk Pastoraltidskrift'' is the traditionalist journal of the High Church Movement in Sweden. The nucleus of the movement is arbetsgemenskapen Kyrklig Förnyelse (Swedish Church Union) together with numerous religious societies and some monastic communities like Östanbäck monastery, Alsike Convent, and Sisterhood of Saint Francis (Franciscan orders in Lutheranism). Some other organisations are St. Laurence Foundation, St. Ansgar Foundation and Förbundet För Kristen Enhet, which works for reunion of Church of Sweden and Roman Catholic Church. The Church Coalition for Bible and Confession is organisation similar to Anglican Forward in Faith. Also Anglican Confraternity of the Blessed Sacrament is active partly within Church of Sweden. The 15th century saw the climax of Lübeck's hegemony. (Visby, one of the midwives of the Hanseatic league in 1358, declined to become a member. Visby dominated trade in the Baltic before the Hanseatic league, and with its monopolistic ideology, suppressed the Gotlandic free-trade competition.) By the late 16th century, the League imploded and could no longer deal with its own internal struggles, the social and political changes that accompanied the Reformation (Protestant Reformation), the rise of Dutch and English merchants, and the incursion of the Ottoman Turks upon its trade routes and upon the Holy Roman Empire itself. Only nine members attended the last formal meeting in 1669 and only three (Lübeck, Hamburg and Bremen) remained as members until its final demise in 1862. location_country location Visby, Gotland locations '''Destination Gotland''' is a Swedish ferry-line that run state-subsidiarised domestic ferries from Nynäshamn and Oskarshamn to Visby on the island of Gotland. It is a wholly owned daughter company of '''Rederi AB Gotland'''. In the summer of 2007 Destination Gotland also begin to run a service between the island of Gotland and the island of Öland. The fleet consists of four high-speed Ro-Pax ferries. The transport volumes to the island of Gotland is more than 1.4 million passengers and 640,000 lane meters of freight per year. During the high season the frequency is up to 16 departures per day to between the mainland of Sweden and the island of Gotland. History Destination Gotland was founded in 1998 and has since that served the routes Visby to Nynäshamn and Oskarshamn. Originally 75% of the company was owned by Rederi Ab Gotland and 25% by Silja Line. In January 1999 Silja Line sold its share in the company to Rederi Ab Gotland, who from then has been the sole owner of the company. At the same time Destination Gotland changed from using Silja Lines reservations system to the BOOKIT reservations system, which is now used for all their ferry reservations and ticketing.

social conscience in both international and domestic affairs (Govt Whips Office 1974, Bassett 1978, Hayward 1981). The government confronted the global nuclear arms race by strong opposition to French testing in the Pacific. As a nation, New Zealand sponsored non-proliferation measures such as the South Pacific Nuclear Free Zone (later embodied in the Rarotonga Treaty of 1986) and South Pacific Environmental programme. The Labour Government ended national conscription and New Zealand’s contribution to the Vietnam War upon coming to power in 1972. Notably also, they cancelled the visas of a visiting Springboks (South Africa national rugby union team) in early 1974 to show its opposition to the regime of apartheid in that country. On the domestic front, it demonstrated its commitment to environmental protection by setting up a Royal Commission on Nuclear Power in 1974, and the establishment of the Guardians of the Rotorua Lakes and Lake Manapouri (both 1973). thumb left 250px The Meridian Mall, Dunedin, home of Arthur Barnett Ltd.

Ruhr

of culture in any way. Although, after the end of the German coal and steel boom, many companies of all kind have settled at The Ruhr Valley, unemployment here is quite high (7.7% national average, 11.5% of the Ruhr, as of July 2008). This has several reasons. First, many immigrants stick to the living and educational ideals of their origin. Second, the residents of all nationalities are very down to earth, because they are involved generally in strong social networks that mitigate the worst effects of unemployment. In addition, good-quality housing in the Ruhr area is quite inexpensive. Therefore, the attendance for migration is low. Also, many of the newly created jobs are in the high-tech sector and cannot easily be filled by workers exempted from production. Characteristics * Do not expect that every German wears leather-trousers. They are common only in Bavaria and, even there, only on special occasions. * Germans mind (in general) the traffic rules and often become angrily if others do not. Crossing the road while traffic lights atr green for drivers can become dangerous. Drivers rely on that you mind the rules too. * Germans are not prude, so be prepared if you watch German TV. * If you get the idea that a parking slot is quite small, look for a bigger one before you touch another car when parking. * There are not so many public toilets. If you need one, try a snack bar or a restaurant. Also, big shopping malls have a customer toilet. Not recommended are the toilets of the fast food chains. They are often badly serviced. * To be dressed casually in the streets is generally accepted and most restaurants. * Smoking is forbidden in public buildings as well as in bars and restaurants, except the owner has set up a separate smoking room. * You may drink water from the tap every time and everywhere. It is always of best quality. Climate The main rule about the central European climate is that you cannot predict the weather. Sometimes summers can be cold and wet, while April (most years very rainy) is warm and sunny. But in general the best chance for sun will be from May to August and in October. July and August can become very hot with temperatures up to 35 degrees Celsius. In wintertime, from December to February, the average temperature is about zero. Winter is not generally recommended for travelling to the Ruhr area, but on the other hand in December, Germany's famous Christmas markets take place. The Christmas markets in Dortmund and Münster are definitely worth a visit. class "galleryTable; style "float:right;" - thumb 120px Heavy Industry nearby Bottrop (Image:Ruhrgebiet_Industrie_060922_42_30.jpg) - thumb 120px Farmland at the banks of River Ruhr (Image:Ruhrgebiet_Ruhrauen_060719_28_20.jpg) - thumb 120px inside a big city (Image:Ruhrgebiet_Bochum_080909_063_30.jpg) - thumb 120px ... and this is also The Ruhr: '''medival City Center of Hattingen''' (Image:Ruhrgebiet_Hattingen_070912_017_30.jpg) - thumb 120px coal seam at Mutten-valley (Image:Ruhrgebiet_Muttental_060509_015_30.jpg) - thumb 120px Industrial ambiente: '''Colosseum Theater''' (Image:Ruhrgebiet_Essen_colosseum_061121_006_30.jpg) Talk The pronounced Ruhr dialect (Herbert Knebel Dr.Stratmann, Atze Schröder) of the 20th century is generally disliked and is hardly spoken. The openness of the people of the region is shaping now a new dialect, which was enriched by linguistic and grammatical elements of the immigrants from 167 nations. Do not expect that everyone understands English, although most people have had English lessons at school. You will have fewer problems if you are able to communicate in German. But communication in English is possible if you do not hesitate to ask the next guy if the first one does not understand you. At some quarters you will find a lot of people able to talk Turkish and, according to the immigration of the last decade, some guys with Polish or Russian. Other languages are not very common. Get in By plane '''Düsseldorf international''' (DUS)has excellent highway connections. By car, you can be inside the Ruhr Area in about 15 minutes. Or take the train. The airport has two stations. Take the S-Bahn from the terminal station to Düsseldorf main station and from there the Regional-Express towards Duisburg. Or use the overhead railway 'Skytrain' to get to long-distance station (about five minutes) and from there the Regional-Express towards Duisburg. For early morning departures, a direct RegionalExpress train runs from the Ruhr area to Düsseldorf Flughafen Terminal station. '''Airport Dortmund''' (DTM) Shuttle buses to Dortmund main railway station and Holzwickede railway station. Public transport buses towards Unna and Dortmund-Aplerbeck Stadtbahn station. '''Airport Weeze-Niederrhein''' (NRN) Public transport bus towards Duisburg and Essen. By train The cities of Duisburg, Mühlheim (note that not all trains stop here), Essen, Bochum, Dortmund and Hamm are situated at the main south-north route and are therefore often hit by long-distance trains. From there, there is a non-straight-tight, but sufficient network of commuter trains and subways in other cities at the Ruhr. By bus Direct long-distance buses run from many major European cities. Deutsche Touring is the major operator. By car Highways lead to the Ruhr from all directions. In the north-south direction, the A1 (Hamburg-Cologne) leads through the eastern Ruhr area. The A3 (Arnhem-Cologne-Frankfurt) opens to the west part and Oberhausen and Duisburg. In east-west direction, the A2 (Oberhausen-Hannover) runs through the northern part of the Ruhr. The central and southern area around Duisburg, Essen and Dortmund is accessible from the A40 (Ruhrschnellweg). East of Dortmund, the A40 changes its name to A44. Directly from the north, crossing the Münsterland, the A31 leads to the center of the region, from the south the A45 (Sauerland line) leads the Ruhr.There are numerous other highways which run through the different regions of the Ruhr. Get around In general inside the big cities public transport is well developed and faster than going by car. But outside the car is often the better choice. Public Transport Since most cities have their separate transport association, coordination is not always the best. But they are all linked together including trains like S-Bahn and Regionals-Express by Verkehrsverbund Rhein Ruhr (VRR) and Tarifraum Münsterland Ruhr-Lippe (VRL) at the eastern limits. Look for tarifs and timetables there. Within a city use bus, tram or underground. Many lines cross city limits several times during their route, this is common and should not be considered alarming. Since most cities in the region blend into one another, traveling across cities is possible but slow. However riding a bus or tram can give you insights you will get nowhere else. If you are short on time, use the S-Bahn or Regional-Express. These are trains, and you will have to get to the nearest station. They all have the same pricing system so that the tickets are valid for all vehicles within the borderlines of the VRR on one hand and VRL on the other hand. For change from VRR to VRL and vice versa exists special conditions. Refer to the internet sites or contact one of the information offices of the organisations. Generally, single tickets are quite expensive, usually cheaper are day tickets, group tickets, family tickets or for longer stays, tickets with a monthly pass. There are 5 fare levels. As a rule of thumb: if you travel 3-4 bus stops or 1.5 km (different rules for each city) you need level K, for travelling within one city or two adjacent suburbs you need level A, for a ride to the next neighbour city fare level B is needed, if you transit to a neighbour city of a neighbour city use level C, and level D is for rides to any location within the area of VRR. You can obtain tickets from the customer offices of the local transport association, from the ticket-machines at the subway stations, from ticket machines within the trams, from bus drivers and from designated kiosks. The surface of the ticket machines can be switched to several languages, english is always among them. '''If there is a ticket machine at a station, it is usually not possible to buy a ticket within the vehicle. Even if you just enter the platforms of a subway station without holding a valid (stamped) ticket, you may be fined'''. Tickets are rarely checked on platforms. Since tickets are not stamped when bought, you have to do it by yourself before entering a vehicle. The orange stamp boxes are located at the entrance of the platforms of subway and trains and within trams and busses. If you depart from a station without being able to buy tickets and without a ticket machine on board the train, you need to ask the conductor or, if there is none, the driver what to do. Regional Transport Regional trains may be used with tickets of VRR within the VRR-area. By taxi Going by taxi is quite expensive. Calculate a price of about 1.60€ km plus a onetime charge from the approach. By car The sometimes very long distances let rise the idea to head for the desired goals by car. You can do so, the road network is consistently good, the orientation due to the numerous places and highways difficult. Avoid the rush hour, which is not so shaped as you might be expect by experience with other cities but more extended to the early morning and late afternoon. All highways are very prone to traffic jam. This is particularly true for the A1 around Dortmund, the A3 between Dusseldorf and Oberhausen, the A40 along the entire length between Duisburg and Dortmund, the A42 between Oberhausen and Herne and the A43, between Bochum and Recklinghausen. By 2010, the A40, between Bochum and Gelsenkirchen will be expanded, which means additional risk of traffic jam. But this highway should be avoided anyway. The better alternative is the A2 or change to bus and train. Only the major traffic jams will be reported during rush hours in the radio program of WDR, information about all jams is available on medium wave 720 KHz. Those who are familiar with the road network can avoid some congestion. Jam forecasts for the next hour with great accuracy is available from road NRW. There, long-term forecasts as well as a travel time calculator are offered, which is very useful for travel planning. Parking garages you will find in adequate number inside the cities, but mind the opening hours. Some close at late evening. By bicycle The Ruhr is not a good spot for cyclists. In the northern part, the situation is perhaps a little better because of the spirit of the Münsterland region nearby than in the southern part, which is quite mountainous. But there are exceptions. The Ruhr Regional Association is buying disused industrial railway lines and converts them to cycle paths. If your target is beside such trails the bike is an opportunity on fine days. But remember, even the core of the Ruhr is 50 km long and the sights are spread over the entire area, in contrast to classical capitals. A list of routes can be found at item “sport”.
