early designs

on the island of Guadalcanal, part of the Solomon Islands, on 7 August 1942. Penfolds The most famous of the early designs is that named after the architect who designed it, J W Penfold. The Penfold boxes come in three sizes and altogether there are nine different types. They are very widespread, with the biggest accumulations in London and Cheltenham. Others are spread across England, Ireland, India (Including locally made copies), British Guyana, Australia and New Zealand. There are no original Penfolds in Scotland, but 1989-built replicas have been erected in these areas, as well as other deserving locations where they are suitable. The first replica Penfold was erected at Tower Bridge, in London, on the south embankment and carries a commemorative plaque. Genuine Penfolds can be seen at the British Postal Museum & Archive Museum Store in Debden (Debden, Epping Forest), Essex, The Farm Museum in Normanby by Scunthorpe, the National Railway Museum at York, Beamish (Beamish Museum) Open Air Museum, the Black Country Museum, Crich National Tramway Museum, Oakham Treasures, near Bristol (see link below), The Isle of Wight Postal Museum near Newport, Isle of Wight and Bygones Museum in Basingstoke, whilst the Severn Valley Railway and the Talyllyn Railway both have replica Penfolds. Penfolds, distinguished by their hexagonal construction and Acanthus (Acanthus (ornament)) bud surmounting the cap, were originally exclusively city-based, but have now found their way into rural areas as well. About 300 were made, of which 150 survive. Nearly 100 replicas have also been installed. The New Zealand boxes are the only Penfolds to bear the cipher of King Edward VII; all others have the cipher of Queen Victoria. The '''Southland Rugby Football Union''' is a provincial rugby union who govern the Southland Region founded in 1886. http: www.rugbysouthland.co.nz index.php?pageLoad 14 The headquarters of Southland Rugby are in Invercargill, New Zealand however the Southland Union also covers country teams such as Midlands (Midlands Rugby Club) of Winton (Winton, New Zealand) and Excelsior Rugby Club of Gore (Gore, New Zealand). Cultivation and uses Mouse-ear Hawkweed has become a common introduced invasive species in North America (where it is found in southern Canada and both northeast and northwest U.S. (United States)), and New Zealand. It is a level C noxious weed in the United States (with higher levels in the states of Washington (Washington (state)) and Oregon), and a weed in Quebec. It does not have special designations in other locations of Canada. It is known to be strongly invasive in New Zealand's tussock (tussock grass) fields, where there are no native species of hawkweed, and biological control measures are being undertaken to control it and other hawkweed species (List of Hieracium species). The screen behind the high altar is delicately carved in Oamaru limestone from New Zealand. It contains many open niches, but these, like the similar niches in the altar of Our Lady located directly behind the high altar, are empty and the statues have never been completed. There are two large chapels and two smaller ones, the larger being the Chapel of the Sacred Heart and the Chapel of the Irish Saints (St Patrick). On either side of the Lady Chapel are the Chapels of Ss Joseph (St Joseph) and Peter (St Peter) all with ornately carved altars and a small statue in each niche. The embellished mosaics in the Kelly Chapel floor were laid by Melocco Co in 1937 approximately the same time as the mosaic floor in the Lady Chapel of St John's College (St John's College, University of Sydney) also designed by Wardell.

He studied at the Leipzig Conservatory (Felix Mendelssohn College of Music and Theatre) between 1887 and 1891 under Gustav Schreck, Hans Sitt and Oscar Paul. Later he played second violin with the Gewandhaus Orchestra (Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra), under the conductorship of names such as Brahms (Johannes Brahms), Grieg (Edvard Grieg), Tchaikovsky (Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky), Bruch (Max Bruch), and Reinecke (Carl Reinecke).

Foreign editions Due to the significant numbers of SriLankan Tamil (Sri Lankan Tamils) population (diaspora (Sri Lankan Tamil diaspora)) spread across the world, ''Virakesari'' has become a world renowned name in Tamil (Tamil language). ''Virakesari'' has a Weekly edition printed in Doha and distributed around the states (Sovereign state) of Middle East. The ''Sunday Virakesari'' is distributed in over 15 countries including USA, Canada, UK, France, Germany, India, Middle East, New Zealand and Australia. The dozen '''Eastern Polynesian languages''' are found on Pacific Islands from Hawaii in the north, to New Zealand in the southwest, to Easter Island in the southeast. Included in this group of Polynesian languages are Hawaiian (Hawaiian language), Marquesan (Marquesan language), Tuamotuan (Tuamotuan language), Tahitian (Tahitian language), New Zealand Māori (Māori language), Cook Island Maori and Rapa Nui (Rapa Nui language). The two most important languages of the group by number of speakers are Tahitian and Māori; Tahitian is the main language of the Society Islands, and is used as a ''lingua franca'' throughout much of French Polynesia, while Māori is spoken by a sizable minority in New Zealand, where it shares official status with English and New Zealand Sign Language (NZSL) . Hawaiian is spoken by few people, but has official status in the State of Hawaii. Edition sizes higher than about 500 are likely to be of print reproductions of paintings, of much less value, though some modern techniques blur this traditional distinction. As in other fields, the use of the concept has become largely driven by marketing imperatives, and has been misused in parts of the market. In particular, lithographic, photogravure, rotogravure, and giclee reproductions of prints, derived from photographs of an original print, which are most unlikely to have any investment value, are often issued in limited editions implying that they will have such value. These need to be distinguished from the original artist's print, carefully produced directly from his work and printed under the artist's supervision. In UK and New Zealand the Fine Art Trade Guild ensures the quality and verification of limited edition prints by employing a number of strictly administered regulations for all processes and aspects related to them.

New Zealand

'''New Zealand''' ( south of the Pacific island areas (Pacific Islands) of New Caledonia, Fiji, and Tonga. Because of its remoteness, it was one of the last lands to be settled by humans. During its long isolation, New Zealand developed a distinctive biodiversity (Biodiversity of New Zealand) of animal, fungal and plant life. The country's varied topography and its sharp mountain peaks, such as the Southern Alps, owe much to the tectonic uplift of land and volcanic eruptions. New Zealand's capital city is Wellington, while its most populous city is Auckland.

Polynesians settled New Zealand in 1250–1300 CE and developed a distinctive Māori culture. Abel Tasman, a Dutch explorer, was the first European to sight New Zealand in 1642 CE. History of New Zealand. Newzealand.com. In 1840, representatives of the British Crown and Māori Chiefs signed the Treaty of Waitangi, making New Zealand a British colony (Colony of New Zealand). Today, the majority of New Zealand's population (New Zealanders) of 4.5 million is of European descent (New Zealand European); the indigenous Māori are the largest minority, followed by Asians and Pacific Islanders. Reflecting this, New Zealand's culture (Culture of New Zealand) is mainly derived from Māori and early British settlers, with recent broadening arising from increased immigration (Immigration to New Zealand). The official languages are English, Māori and New Zealand Sign Language, with English predominant. The country's economy was historically dominated by the export of wool, but exports of dairy products, meat, and wine, along with tourism, are more significant today.

Nationally, legislative authority is vested in an elected, unicameral Parliament (Parliament of New Zealand), while executive political power is exercised by the Cabinet (Cabinet of New Zealand), led by the Prime Minister (Prime Minister of New Zealand), who is currently John Key. Queen Elizabeth II (Elizabeth II) is the country's head of state and is represented by a Governor-General (Governor-General of New Zealand). In addition, New Zealand is organised into 11 regional councils (Regions of New Zealand) and 67 territorial authorities (Territorial authorities of New Zealand) for local government purposes. The Realm of New Zealand also includes Tokelau (a dependent territory); the Cook Islands and Niue (self-governing states in free association (Associated state) with New Zealand); and the Ross Dependency, which is New Zealand's territorial claim in Antarctica (territorial claims in Antarctica). New Zealand is a member of the United Nations, Commonwealth of Nations, ANZUS, Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, Pacific Islands Forum and Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation.
