What is Jersey known for?


liberal views

of Baron Georges Cuvier, then minister of Protestant worship, Coquerel was called to Paris as pastor of the Reformed Church. During the course of 1833 he was chosen a member of the consistory, and rapidly acquired the reputation of a great pulpit orator, but his liberal views brought him into antagonism with the rigid Calvinists. He took a warm interest in all matters of education, and distinguished himself so much by his defence of the University of Paris against a sharp attack, that in 1835


study called

. Havet's valedictory thesis at the École des Chartes, ''Série chronologique des gardiens et seigneurs des Îles normandes'' (1876), was a definitive work, slightly affected by later research. In 1878 he followed his thesis with a study called ''Les Cours royales dans les Îles normandes''. Both works were composed entirely from the original documents at the Public Record Office in London and the archives of Jersey and Guernsey. In Jersey, in the Channel Islands, apple butter

; used to solicit agreement or confirmation is also heard regularly amongst speakers in Australia (where it is sometimes spelled "ay (Wiktionary:ay)" on the assumption that "eh" would rhyme with "heh (Wiktionary:heh)" or "meh (Wiktionary:meh)"). In the Caribbean island of Barbados the word "nuh" acts similar. The usage in New Zealand is similar, and is more common in the North Island. It is also heard in the United States, especially Minnesota, Wisconsin, the Upper Peninsula of Michigan (although the Scandinavian (North Germanic languages)-based Yooperism (Yooper dialect) "ya" is more common), Oklahoma and the New England region. In New England and Oklahoma, it is also used as a general exclamation as in Scotland and the Channel Islands of Jersey and Guernsey. It is occasionally used to express indifference, in a similar way to "meh". *Isle of Man - Lieutenant Governor of the Isle of Man *Jersey - Lieutenant Governor of Jersey *New Zealand - The only person to have held the rank of Lieutenant Governor of New Zealand was Royal Navy Captain (Captain (Royal Navy)) William Hobson from 1839–1841 when New Zealand colony was a dependency (Dependent territory) of the colony of New South Wales, governed at that time by Sir George Gipps. When New Zealand was designated a Crown colony in 1841, Hobson was raised to the rank of governor, which he held until his death the following year. Subsequently in 1848 New Zealand was divided into three provinces: New Ulster (New Ulster Province), New Munster (New Munster Province), and New Leinster (New Leinster Province), each with their own Lieutenant Governors.

The Cook Islands and Niue, non-sovereign territories in free association (Associated state) with New Zealand, and Norfolk Island, an external territory (states and territories of Australia#External territories) of Australia, also compete separately.

They went back to Guernsey the same day. Herm's sandy beaches were soon used for practising landings from barges, in preparation for the invasion of England (Operation Sealion), but otherwise the island saw little of the Germans beyond officers making trips to shoot rabbits. Herm was spared the huge concrete blockhouses, anti-tank walls and observation towers that were built on the larger islands. *Dudley Zoo, West Midlands (West Midlands (county)) *Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust (Jersey Zoological Park), Jersey, Channel Islands (founded by Gerald Durrell) *Edinburgh Zoo, Edinburgh, Scotland DATE OF BIRTH October 13, 1853 PLACE OF BIRTH Jersey, Channel Islands DATE OF DEATH February 12, 1929 Brito eventually retired to the island of Jersey.


quot drinking

and quite a few different clubs. Despite duty on alcohol being lower than the UK most popular bars set their prices close to what you'd expect in London. Normal pub closing time is 23:00 and most clubs have to be closed by 02:00 (there is no "drinking-up-time"). There are a few bars with alfresco areas including one with a view over the bay toward Elizabeth castle. Most of the working-men's pubs became trendy wine bars in the early nineties so there's not much chance of finding a pool table

, West's Cinema. The large Art Deco Forum Cinema was opened in 1935 – during the German occupation this was used for German propaganda films. The Odeon Cinema was opened 2 June 1952 and, was later rebranded in the early 21st century as the Forum cinema. Its owners, however, struggled to meet tough competition from the Cineworld Cinemas group, which opened a 10 screen multiplex on the waterfront centre in St. Helier on reclaimed land in December 2002 and the Odeon closed its doors in late 2008

Economic Community and to the European Atomic Energy Community signed on 22 January 1972". However, Jersey does not appear on the list of European States and Territories outside the Union and the Communities prepared by the European Council and the Commission. This is a result of the manner of implementation of the Treaty arrangements under the Act of Accession in 1972. It is easier to understand the present relationship on the basis that Jersey would have been fully within the European Communities like Gibraltar, being a European territory for whose external relations the United Kingdom was responsible, but that that is limited to the Protocol 3 arrangements under article 355 TFEU to reflect the then existing relationship with the United Kingdom. Under Protocol 3, Jersey is part of the European Union Customs Union of the European Community. The common customs tariff, levies and other agricultural import measures apply to trade between the island and non-Member States. There is free movement of goods (Internal Market (European Union)#Free movement of goods) and trade between the island and Member States (Member state of the European Union). EU rules on freedom of movement for workers do not apply in Jersey.
