, the superconducting behavior continued. The critical temperature at that field strength increased to about 400 millikelvins. The sample retained the superconducting state until 13 T. They also found that at 12 T, the URhGe sample experienced a magnetic phase transition. Characteristics of Brick Gothic Romanesque brick architecture remained closely connected with contemporary stone architecture and simply translated the latter's style and repertoire into the new material. In contrast, Brick Gothic developed its own typical style, characterised by the reduction in available materials: the buildings were often bulky and of monumental size, but rather simple as regards their external appearance, lacking the delicacy of areas further south. Nonetheless, they were strongly influenced by the cathedrals of France and by the ''gothique tournaisien'' or ''Schelde Gothic'' of the County of Flanders. * The Marais Poitevin, an area of marsh land criss-crossed with canals north of La Rochelle in Poitou-Charentes, France. Here the boats (called ''barques'') are somewhat shorter than a Thames punt, and may have a pointed bow and stern. The punting pole (''la pigouille'') may be a rough cut branch or coppice pole. Originally used for transporting goods and livestock, today boats are available for hire to tourists. * China - Type 092 submarine * France - Triomphant class submarine * Russia (Russian Navy) - Typhoon (Typhoon class submarine), Delta (Delta class submarine) and Borei (Borei class submarine) Development With the end of the Battle of France and the evacuation of the British Expeditionary Force (British Expeditionary Force (World War II)) from the port of Dunkirk (Dunkirk evacuation) between 26 May and 4 June 1940, a German invasion of Great Britain (Operation Sealion) seemed likely. Mackenzie, p. 20 However, the British Army was not well-equipped to defend the country in such an event; in the weeks after the Dunkirk evacuation it could only field twenty-seven divisions. Lampe, p. 3 The Army was particularly short of anti-tank guns, 840 of which had been left behind in France and only 167 were available in Britain; ammunition was so scarce for the remaining guns that regulations forbade even a single round being used for training purposes. As a result of these shortcomings, a number of new anti-tank weapons had to be developed to equip the British Army and the Home Guard (Home Guard (United Kingdom)) with the means to repel German armoured vehicles. Hogg, pp. 237-239 Many of these were anti-tank hand grenades, large numbers of which could be built in a very short space of time and for a low cost. They included the Grenade, Hand, Anti-tank No. 74 (Sticky bomb), also known as the 'Sticky bomb', which was coated with a strong adhesive and 'stuck' to a vehicle, and the No. 76 Special Incendiary Grenade, essentially a British variation on the Molotov cocktail. Hogg, pp. 239-240 Ian Hogg states that the "simplest of these grenades" was the '''No. 73 grenade''', which was known under a variety of names, including the '''hand percussion grenade''', Hogg, p. 239 the '''Thermos bomb''' and the '''Woolworth bomb'''. His fame (Celebrity) grew rapidly. The French (France) government purchased of one of his paintings for the Luxembourg Museum (1910), he organized a one-man show at Galerie Druet (1911), and he was connected with important personalities of Parisian cultural life, including the critics Adolf Basler and André Salmon. In 1912 he became a professor at the Académie La Palette. In 1913 he married a beginning painter Jadwiga Kon, who managed the well-known Galerie Zak after his death. Between 1914 and 1916 he stayed in southern France (Nice, St Paul-de-Vence, and Vence), and also visited Lausanne in Switzerland. - • Battle of France Germany defeats France and the British Expeditionary Force (British Expeditionary Force (World War II)) in the culmination of ''Fall Gelb''.

After plebiscites were held in March 1860, the state was formally annexed to the Piedmont-Sardinia (Kingdom of Piedmont-Sardinia). In exchange for a French (France) recognition, Savoy and Nice were ceded to France. thumb 200px right Jarre playing the laser harp (Image:Przestrzen wolnosci harfa laserowa.jpg) '''Space of Freedom''' was a concert performed by French (France) musician Jean Michel Jarre in Poland, at the Gdańsk Shipyard, on August 26, 2005, to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Solidarity (Solidarity (Polish trade union)) trade union's foundation.
