story development

, the West Coast of the United States, and the United Kingdom. Contemporary circus combines traditional circus skills and theatrical techniques to convey a story or theme. Compared with the traditional circus, the contemporary genre of circus tends to focus more attention on the overall aesthetic impact, on character and story development, and on the use of lighting design, original music, and costume design to convey thematic or narrative content. For aesthetic or economic reasons, contemporary circus productions may sometimes be staged in theatres rather than in large outdoor tents. Music used in the production is often composed exclusively for that production, and aesthetic influences are drawn as much from contemporary culture as from circus history. Animal acts appear less frequently in contemporary circus than in traditional circus. Early examples of ''nouveau cirque'' companies include: Circus Oz, forged in Australia in 1978 from SoapBox Circus and New Circus, both founded in the early 1970s; the Pickle Family Circus, founded in San Francisco (San Francisco, California) in 1975; Nofit State Circus in 1984 from Wales; Cirque du Soleil, founded in Quebec in 1984; and Archaos in 1986. More recent examples include: Teatro ZinZanni, founded in Seattle in 1998; Quebec's Cirque Éloize; Les 7 doigts de la main (also known as The 7 Fingers); The 7 Fingers and the West African Circus Baobab Circus Baobab in the late 1990s. The genre includes other circus troupes such as the Vermont-based Circus Smirkus (founded in 1987 by Rob Mermin), Le Cirque Imaginaire (later renamed Le Cirque Invisible, both founded and directed by Victoria Chaplin, daughter of Charlie Chaplin), the Tiger Lillies, Dislocate, Dislocate and Vulcana Women's Circus, http: www.vulcana.org.au while The Jim Rose Circus (Jim Rose Circus) is an interesting take on the sideshow.

After that, word of mouth would spread through the local area until the dojo had a dedicated core of students. Oyama also sent instructors to other countries such as the Netherlands (Kenji Kurosaki), Australia (Shigeo Kato), the United States of America (Tadashi Nakamura, Shigeru Oyama and Yasuhiko Oyama, Miyuki Miura) and Brazil (Seiji Isobe) to spread Kyokushin in the same way. In addition, numerous students began to travel to Japan to train with Oyama, consequently returning to their country to spread the art. In 1969, Oyama staged ''The First All-Japan Full Contact Karate Open Championships'' which took Japan by storm and Terutomo Yamazaki became the first champion. All-Japan Championships have been held at every year. Also in 1975, ''The First World Full Contact Karate Open Championships'' were held in Tokyo. World Championships have been held at four-yearly intervals since.

Williams currently has a 13-game hitting streak, as he has a hit (Hit (baseball)) in every game that he has played in while in the major leagues. As the number of students finishing secondary school goes up each year (44,000 were expected to finish in 2008), SQU (Sultan Qaboos University) and other public colleges have become unable to cope with the demand. Since private colleges were very limited in the mid nineties, more and more students sought higher education in countries like the UAE, Jordan and Egypt. The government became aware of the trend and decided to encourage the private sector in Oman to form universities and colleges. The first private college was established in 1994. Since this date, a number of private colleges and universities have been started in Oman. Most of them focus on popular studies such as business administration and computer sciences. They are usually affiliated with European, Australian or American (United States) institutions. The language of instruction is mainly English. A’Sharqiya University, in Ibra, opened its doors in the fall of 2010.

By contrast with aqueducts providing potable water for towns and cities, those used in mining had a higher gradient so as to provide a faster stream to speed operations, and consequently a shorter life. It seems clear that the methods of hydraulic mining such as hushing were a Roman innovation, nothing comparable being known in previous times. No doubt their skills at aqueduct building promoted their less well-known use in large-scale mining, as attested by Pliny. Introductions across the Atlantic rarely prospered, even before the outbreak of Dutch elm disease.

Australia

'''Australia''' is an Oceanian country comprising the mainland of the Australian continent (Australia (continent)), the island of Tasmania, and numerous smaller islands (list of islands of Australia). It is the world's sixth-largest country by total area (List of countries and dependencies by area). Neighbouring countries include Indonesia, East Timor and Papua New Guinea to the north; the Solomon Islands and Vanuatu to the north-east; and New Zealand to the south-east.

For at least 40,000 years who spoke languages grouped into roughly 250 language groups (Australian Aboriginal languages). Walsh, Michael (1991) "Overview of indigenous languages of Australia" in Suzane Romaine (ed.) ''Language in Australia'', Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, ISBN 0-521-33983-9. After the European discovery of the continent by Dutch (Dutch Republic) explorers in 1606, Australia's eastern half was claimed by Great Britain (Kingdom of Great Britain) in 1770 and initially settled through penal transportation to the colony of New South Wales from 26 January 1788. The population grew steadily in subsequent decades; the continent was explored and an additional five self-governing crown colonies were established.

On 1 January 1901, the six colonies federated (Federation of Australia), forming the Commonwealth of Australia. Since Federation, Australia has maintained a stable liberal democratic (liberal democracy) political system that functions as a federal (Federalism) parliamentary democracy and constitutional monarchy comprising six states and several territories (States and territories of Australia). The population of 23.6 million is highly urbanised (Urbanization) and heavily concentrated in the eastern states (Eastern states of Australia) and on the coast.

Australia is a developed country and one of the wealthiest in the world, with the world's 12th-largest economy (List of countries by GDP (nominal)). In 2012 Australia had the world's fifth-highest per capita income (List of countries by GDP (nominal) per capita). Data refer mostly to the year 2012. World Economic Outlook Database-October 2013, International Monetary Fund. Accessed on 8 October 2013. Australia's military expenditure is the world's 13th-largest (List of countries by military expenditures). With the second-highest human development index globally (List of countries by Human Development Index), Australia ranks highly (International rankings of Australia) in many international comparisons of national performance, such as quality of life, health, education, economic freedom, and the protection of civil liberties and political rights. Australia is a member of the United Nations, G20 (G-20 major economies), Commonwealth of Nations, ANZUS, Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), World Trade Organization, Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation, and the Pacific Islands Forum.
