as the country's best ever achievement in international football. Finland beat Italy (Italy national football team) and Russia (Russia national football team) in the first two rounds before losing to Great Britain (England national amateur football team) in the semi-finals. In the bronze medal match they were beaten 0–9 by the Netherlands (Netherlands national football team). According to the story, the Finns were under the impression that the match would be a day later, so they had gone out celebrating the night before the match, and as a consequence were easily beaten. Finland's star player Eino Soinio, aged only 17 at the time, was chosen to the all-star team of the tournament by Swedish (Sweden) paper ''Idrottsbladet''.

align center PVG align center ZSPD style "background-color:#DDFFDD" Pudong International Airport align center - History The airline was established on 13 September 1994, and began commercial operations on 9 November 1995, with a flight from Macau to Beijing and Shanghai (prior to 1995, there was no air service to Macau other than the helicopter service). One-aircraft service between Beijing, Shanghai and Taipei began on 8 December 1995. The first pure-freighter service was launched on 7 October 2002, between Taipei and Shenzhen via Macau. Air Macau offers a one-plane service for passengers traveling between Taiwan and Beijing, Shanghai, Xiamen, and other cities in the Chinese mainland. Although they must complete a brief transfer procedure in the Macau International Airport and wait for about 30 minutes with their carry-on luggage in the departure lobby, passengers can board the same plane once again and continue to their destination. Air Macau staff are also stationed to assist Taiwanese passengers in obtaining their PRC (People's Republic of China) Entry Endorsement. Several Orthodox congregations continue to meet in Beijing, in northeast China (in Heilongjiang and elsewhere) and in western China (Xinjiang - Ürümqi and Ghulja) with, apparently, the tacit consent of the government. There are also Orthodox parishes in Shanghai, Province of Guangdong, Hong Kong and Taiwan. Novel biography Although the film and novel are similar in plot (Plot (narrative)), the backgrounds for Julius No carry certain differences. An individual of Chinese (Chinese people)-German (Germans) cultural heritage, the novel's Dr. No was born in Peking to a German Methodist missionary and a Chinese girl, but was raised by his aunt. When older, he went to Shanghai, where he became involved with the Tongs (Tong (gang)), a Chinese crime syndicate. Later he was smuggled to the United States and settled in New York City, where he became a clerk and eventually Treasurer for a Tong in America, called the "Hip-Sings" (Hip Sing Association). subdivision_type1 Major Cities subdivision_name1 Shanghai Nanjing Hangzhou Suzhou Ningbo Wuxi Nantong Shaoxing Changzhou Jinhua Jiaxing Taizhou (Taizhou, Zhejiang) Yangzhou Yancheng Taizhou (Taizhou, Jiangsu) Zhenjiang Huzhou Huai'an Zhoushan Quzhou Ma'anshan Hefei area_metro_km2 The '''Yangtze River Delta''', '''Yangtze Delta''' or '''YRD''', also called '''Yangzi Jiang Delta''', '''Chang Jiang Delta''', '''River Chang Delta''', '''Tai Lake Region (Taihu Lake)''' or the '''Golden Triangle of the Yangtze''', generally comprises the triangular-shaped territory of Wu (Wu Chinese)-speaking Shanghai, southern Jiangsu province and northern Zhejiang province of China. The area lies at the heart of the region traditionally called Jiangnan (literally, "south of the Yangtze River"). The Yangtze River drains into the East China Sea. The urban build-up in the area has given rise what may be the largest concentration of adjacent metropolitan areas in the world. It covers an area of 99600 km 2 and is home to over 105 million people as of 2010, of which an estimated 80 million is urban. Population The delta is one of the most densely populated regions on earth, and includes one of the world's largest cities on its banks—Shanghai, with a density of 2,700 inhabitants km². Because of the large population of the delta, and factories, farms, and other cities upriver, the World Wide Fund for Nature says the Yangtze Delta is the biggest cause of marine pollution in the Pacific Ocean. After the Chinese economic reform program, which began in 1978, Shanghai again became the most important economic centre in mainland China, and is emerging to become one of Asia's centres for commerce. In modern times, the Yangtze Delta metropolitan region is centred at Shanghai, and also flanked by the major metropolitan areas of Hangzhou, Suzhou, Ningbo, and Nanjing, home to nearly 105 million people (of which an estimated 80 million are urban residents). It is the centre of Chinese economic development, and surpasses other concentrations of metropolitan areas (including the Pearl River Delta) in the People's Republic of China in terms of economic growth, productivity and per capita income. In 1982, the Chinese government set up the Shanghai Economic Area. Besides Shanghai, 4 cities in Jiangsu (Suzhou, Wuxi, Changzhou, Nantong) and 5 citeis in Zhejiang (Hangzhou, Jiaxing, Shaoxing, Huzhou, Ningbo) were included. In 1992, a 14-city cooperative joint meeting was launched. Besides the previous 10 cities, the members included Nanjing, Zhenjiang and Yangzhou in Jiangsu, and Zhoushan in Zhejiang. In 1997, the regular joint meeting resulted in the establishment of the Yangtze River Delta Economic Coordination Association, which included a new member Taizhou (Taizhou, Jiangsu) in Jiangsu in that year. In 2003, Taizhou (Taizhou, Zhejiang) in Zhejiang also joined the association. In 2010, the association accepted 6 new members after six-year observation and review, including Yancheng and Huai'an in Jiangsu, Jinhua and Quzhou in Zhejiang, and Ma'anshan and Hefei in Anhui. The total number of cities in the Yangtze River Delta Economic Coordination Association is now 22. Some other cities that have been in consideration and in review include Wenzhou and Lishui in Zhejiang, Lianyungang and Xuzhou in Jiangsu, and Chuzhou, Wuhu, Tongling, Huainan and Xuancheng in Anhui. *Urban cores: '''Shanghai''' (a municipality of China), '''Nanjing''' (the capital of Jiangsu Province), '''Hangzhou''' (the capital of Zhejiang Province), Suzhou, Ningbo, Wuxi. *Jiangsu Province: Nanjing, Suzhou (including county-level urban centres of Changshu, Taicang, Kunshan, Wujiang (Wujiang, Jiangsu) and Zhangjiagang), Wuxi (including county-level urban centres of Jiangyin and Yixing), Nantong (including county-level urban centres of Rugao, Haimen, and Qidong (Qidong, Jiangsu)), Changzhou (including county-level urban centres of Jintan and Liyang), Yangzhou (including urban centre of Yizheng), Yancheng (including county-level urban centres of Dafeng and Dongtai), Taizhou (Taizhou, Jiangsu) (including county-level urban centres of Jiangyan, Jingjiang, Taixing and Xinghua (Xinghua, Jiangsu)), Zhenjiang (including county-level urban centres of Danyang, Jurong (Jurong, Jiangsu) and Yangzhong), Huai'an. 200 px (File:Pudong Skyline, Shanghai, PRC.jpg) Shanghai is the largest city in China in terms of population and one of the largest metropolitan areas in the world, with over 20 million people.

'''Rugby League World Cup''' was held in Australia and New Zealand in '''1968'''. For the first time a world cup final was specifically pre-arranged (previous finals having only been used when teams were level on points). The group match between Great Britain (Great Britain national rugby league team) and Australia (Australia national rugby league team) attracted an attendance of 62,256, the highest for a rugby league World Cup match until 1992 (1989 - 1992 Rugby League World Cup). McCann, 2006 (#McCann2006): 83 The final was held at Sydney Cricket Ground; a crowd of 54,290 watched Australia defeat France (France national rugby league team). The stars of a superb Australian team in the tournament were skipper Johnny Raper, second-rower Ron Coote, who scored spectacular tries in each and every game, and the dead-shot kicker Eric Simms (Eric Simms (rugby league)), who harvested a record 25 goals (50 points). The eighth '''Rugby League World Cup''' was held in '''1977''', and saw a return to the format used on previous occasions. The tournament was held in Australasia, with games in both Australia and New Zealand. That the final would be between Great Britain (Great Britain national rugby league team) and Australia (Australia national rugby league team) soon became obvious, with France (France national rugby league team) and New Zealand (New Zealand national rugby league team) both performing poorly. accessdate 2009-12-24 location London and New Zealand cut a swathe through the tournament, with several dominant performances setting up an obvious final clash. New Zealand's 49-6 semi-final dispatch of England, coupled with Australia only hitting the lead in their semi-final against Wales with 23 minutes remaining, had New Zealand installed as favourites in some quarters. However, it was Australia who prevailed in a tense, absorbing finale. Australia only led 18-12 with 15 minutes remaining, but a glut of possession saw them finish strongly - scoring four late tries to give the appearance of an easy victory. accessdate 2009-12-24 location London and New Zealand cut a swathe through the tournament, with several dominant performances setting up an obvious final clash.

for an extended period. Henry considered Jane to be his "true" wife, being the only one who had given him the male heir he so desperately sought. He was later to be buried next to her at his death. The Elite Ice Hockey League (EIHL) is the highest level of ice hockey in Great Britain (British national ice hockey team). The league is served by teams from all of the home nations: England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. The emergence of English as a language of Wales results from the incorporation of Wales into England and also dates from approximately this time period. Soon afterward, the development of printing by Caxton (William Caxton) and others accelerated the development of a standardised form of English. Following a change in vowel pronunciation (Great Vowel Shift) that marks the transition of English from the medieval to the Renaissance period, the language of the Chancery and Caxton became Early Modern English (the language of Shakespeare's (Shakespeare) day) and with relatively moderate changes eventually developed into the English language of today. Scots (Scots language), as spoken in the lowlands and along the east coast of Scotland, developed independently from Modern English and is based on the Northern dialects of Anglo-Saxon, particularly Northumbrian, which also serve as the basis of Northern English dialects such as those of Yorkshire (Yorkshire English) and Newcastle upon Tyne (Geordie). Northumbria was within the Danelaw and therefore experienced greater influence from Norse than did the Southern dialects. As the political influence of London grew, the Chancery (Chancery_Standard#Chancery_Standard) version of the language developed into a written standard across Great Britain, further progressing in the modern period as Scotland became united with England as a result of the Acts of Union of 1707 (Acts of Union 1707). During the English Conquest of Ireland, only the nobility were allowed to own Irish Wolfhounds, the numbers permitted depending on position. They were much coveted and were frequently given as gifts to important personages and foreign nobles. Wolfhounds were the companions of the regal, and were housed themselves alongside them. King John of England, in about 1210 presented an Irish hound, Gelert to Llewellyn (Llywelyn the Great), a prince of Wales. The poet The Hon William Robert Spencer immortalised this hound in a poem. * 2005 – Mumbai, India receives 99.5cm of rain (2005 Maharashtra floods) (39.17 inches) within 24 hours, bringing the city to a halt for over 2 days. *2007 – Shambo, a black cow in Wales that had been adopted by the local Hindu community, is slaughtered due to a bovine tuberculosis infection, causing widespread controversy. *2008 – 56 people are killed and over 200 people are injured in 21 bomb blasts in Ahmedabad bombing (2008 Ahmedabad bombings) in India. While Mar succeeded in raising an alliance of clans and northern Lowlanders, he turned out to be an indifferent and indecisive general. Planned risings in Wales and Devon were forestalled by government arrests. A rising in the north of England joined forces with a rising in the south of Scotland and with a contingent from Mar marched into England, but did not meet the expected welcome and surrendered after a brief siege at the Battle of Preston (1715). Early life and first military career Both of Davis's paternal grandparents had emigrated to North America from the region of Snowdonia in the North of Wales; the rest of his ancestry can be traced back to England. Davis was born in Christian County, Kentucky, the son of Jane (née Cook) and Samuel Emory Davis. Davis' paternal grandfather, Evan, married Lydia Emory Williams, also from Philadelphia, and his father was born to them in 1756. Lydia had two sons from a previous marriage; along with his two half-brothers, Samuel served in the Continental Army during the American Revolutionary War. He later married Davis' mother Jane, who was born in Christian County, Kentucky in 1759 to William Cook and his wife Sarah Simpson. Samuel and Jane were married in 1783 and had 10 children. Jefferson was the last and was born on June 3, 1808. Samuel died on July 4, 1824, and Jane on October 3, 1845.
