January 2011 last Barton first Geoff date 4 September 2009 publisher Classic Rock Magazine quote Rock Goddess split Biography Braathen grew up as one of seven siblings in Åssiden in Drammen. He started studying commercial studies as a 15-year-old in Drammen, and later at Treiders Handelsskole in Oslo. In his youth, Braathen wanted to become an entrepreneur, preferably within the lumber industry. He started working for a furniture wood dealer. In 1909, he changed jobs, and started working for ship-owner E. B. Aaby in Strømsø. In 1913, he moved to Cardiff in Wales, where he worked for Vivyan Kelly & Company as a head of department. He planned to travel to Argentina and China, each for two years, but the outbreak of World War I in 1914 forced Braathen to return home, where he served as a conscript in the Norwegian Royal Guards (Hans Majestet Kongens Garde). After one year, he was hired as an administrator for ship-owner B. A. Sanne in Oslo. When Sanne died in 1922, Braathen was hired as CEO, along with Sanne's son.

white selling

, a National Lottery (National Lottery (United Kingdom))-funded charity, recently gave a £300 grant to some children who wanted to set up a healthy tuck shop To some, this means providing healthier types of the same goods (for example using brown bread instead of white, selling milk and fruit juice instead of fizzy drinks and rice cakes and crackers instead of crisps). For example, see this advice given by the charity the British Nutrition Foundation This model has become very popular in many schools in the UK. Some groups have advocated going even further and creating a "fruit tuck shop". For example, Islington Primary Care Trust (NHS Trust) is now actively encouraging fruit tuck shops. A press release about this can be found here Research and pilot schemes have been done in some areas, such as this study from Gloucestershire These have been less popular, primarily due to a perceived drop in revenue and the generally tight state of funding in the UK education system at present, although this may change in the future. The '''River Clywedog''' is a river in the county borough of Wrexham (Wrexham (county borough)), Wales. Its uses have been watering crops and powering industrial machinery. The river originates to the west of Wrexham, and joins the River Dee (River Dee, Wales) some four miles south east of the Town.

opposition construction

area. Construction and opposition Construction of the reservoir involved flooding the village of Capel Celyn and adjacent farmland, a deeply controversial move. Much of the opposition was brought about because the village was a strong-hold of Welsh culture (Culture of Wales) and the Welsh language, whilst the reservoir was being built to supply Liverpool and parts of the Wirral (Metropolitan Borough of Wirral) with water, rather than Wales. The legislation enabling the development was also passed despite the opposition of 35 out of 36 Welsh Members of Parliament, with the 36th not voting. This led to an increase in support for the Welsh nationalist (Welsh nationalism) party, Plaid Cymru, in the late 1950s and gave fresh impetus to Welsh devolution. The railway ran largely on the route of an earlier canal (Kidwelly and Llanelly Canal) built by Thomas Kymer to bring coal down the valley. It also operated dock (dock (maritime)) facilities at Burry Port, Wales. The railway was poorly managed in the nineteenth century WikiPedia:Wales Dmoz:Regional Europe United Kingdom Wales commons:Wales - Cymru

distinct line

: The Sea Empress disaster accessdate 26 September 2010 work BBC News website The first border between Wales and England was zonal, apart from around the River Wye, which was the first accepted boundary. Davies (2008) p. 75 Offa's Dyke was supposed to form an early distinct line but this was thwarted by Gruffudd ap Llewellyn, who reclaimed swathes of land beyond the dyke. The Act of Union of 1536 formed a linear border stretching from the mouth of the Dee to the mouth of the Wye. Even after the Act of Union, many of the borders remained vague and moveable until the Welsh Sunday Closing act of 1881, which forced local businesses to decide which country they fell within to accept either the Welsh or English law. thumb Llyn y Fan Fawr (File:Llyn y Fan Fawr.jpg), Powys, within the Brecon Beacons National Park The ''Seven Wonders of Wales'' is a list in doggerel verse of seven geographic and cultural landmarks in Wales probably composed in the late 18th century under the influence of tourism from England.

In 1987, Welsh (Wales) rock and roll singer Shakin' Stevens covered the song, making it a minor hit in the UK (United Kingdom) and Ireland.

The status of Wales as a country and as a part of the UK has been subject to extensive debate and mediation and the current form of words in the lead came out of that process.

----- '''Wales''' ( ), its highest summit. The country lies within the north temperate zone (Temperateness) and has a changeable, maritime climate.

Welsh national identity (Welsh people) emerged among the Celtic (Celts) Britons (Britons (historical)) after the Roman withdrawal from Britain in the 5th century, and Wales is regarded as one of the modern Celtic nations. Llywelyn ap Gruffudd's death in 1282 marked the completion of Edward I of England's conquest (Conquest of Wales by Edward I) of Wales, though Owain Glyndŵr briefly restored independence to what was to become modern Wales, in the early 15th century. The whole of Wales was annexed by England and incorporated within the English legal system (English law) under the Laws in Wales Acts 1535–1542. Distinctive Welsh politics developed in the 19th century. Welsh Liberalism (Liberal Party (UK)), exemplified in the early 20th century by Lloyd George (David Lloyd George), was displaced by the growth of socialism and the Labour Party (Labour Party (UK)). Welsh national feeling grew over the century; ''Plaid Cymru'' was formed in 1925 and the Welsh Language Society in 1962. Established under the Government of Wales Act 1998, the National Assembly for Wales holds responsibility for a range of devolved policy matters (Contemporary Welsh Law#Areas to legislate: The devolved areas).

At the dawn of the Industrial Revolution, development of the mining (mining in Wales) and metallurgical (metallurgy) industries transformed the country from an agricultural society into an industrial nation; the South Wales Coalfield's exploitation caused a rapid expansion of Wales' population. Two-thirds of the population live in south Wales, mainly in and around Cardiff (the capital), Swansea and Newport (Newport, Wales), and in the nearby valleys (South Wales valleys). Now that the country's traditional extractive and heavy industries have gone or are in decline, Wales' economy depends on the public sector, light and service industries and tourism (Tourism in Wales). Wales' 2010 gross value added (GVA) (Gross Value Added) was £45.5 billion (£15,145 per head, 74.0% of the average for the UK, and the lowest GVA per head in Britain).

Although Wales closely shares its political and social history with the rest of Great Britain, and the vast majority of the population speaks English (English language), the country has retained a distinct cultural identity (Welsh culture) and is officially bilingual. Over 560,000 Welsh language speakers live in Wales, and the language is spoken by a majority of the population in parts of the north and west. From the late 19th century onwards, Wales acquired its popular image as the "land of song", in part due to the ''eisteddfod'' tradition. At many international sporting events, such as the FIFA World Cup, Rugby World Cup and the Commonwealth Games, Wales has its own national teams, though at the Olympic Games, Welsh athletes compete as part of a Great Britain team (Great Britain at the Olympics). Rugby Union is seen as a symbol of Welsh identity and an expression of national consciousness.
