'''Charles Frederick Peace''' (14 May 1832 – 25 February 1879) was a notorious English (England) burglar and murderer from Sheffield, whose somewhat remarkable life later spawned dozens of romanticised (romanticism) novels and films. Peace is mentioned by name in the Sherlock Holmes short story, ''The Adventure of the Illustrious Client'' and in Mark

Born in 1880 at Winterbourne in Gloucestershire, he was educated at the Merchant Venturer’s School in Bristol before training as an electrical engineer. During the Boer War he enlisted in the Baden-Powell South African Constabulary and was wounded twice. On his return to Britain he pursued his interest in the burgeoning electrical sciences on the estate of Lord de la Warr at Bexhill-on-Sea. There he displayed a natural aptitude for "thinking outside the box" and began to first visualise and later produce a remarkable series of inventions. publisher Fortean Times date October 2003 accessdate 2007-07-21 **Bournemouth - Bournemouth Airport '''†''' **Bristol - Bristol Airport '''†''' **Cardiff - Cardiff Airport '''†''' By 1881, all wooden bridges had been replaced by iron and stone structures, and steel rail had replaced early iron rail. Fourteen steamship lines were serving the Grand Trunk wharves at Portland by 1896 with connections to Bristol, London, Liverpool, Glasgow, and Antwerp. Fifty steamships visited Portland that winter, and as many as seven could load simultaneously from the Grand Trunk wharves. More powerful 2-6-0 mogul locomotives increased freight train length from 16 to 30 cars. Tobin was born in Salisbury, the son of James Tobin, a merchant, and his wife, born Webbe, the daughter of a rich West India sugar planter. George Tobin was his elder brother. Another brother, James Webbe Tobin (died 1814), an acquaintance of Charles Lamb and Samuel Taylor Coleridge, went to Nevis. About 1775 the father set out with his wife to Nevis in the West Indies. The children were left behind, and John was placed for a while under the care of Dr. Richard Mant, the father of Richard Mant the bishop, at Southampton. After the American War of Independence, James Tobin having returned to England and settled at Redland (Redland, Bristol), near Bristol, John was sent to Bristol Grammar School under Dr. Charles Lee. In 1787 he left Bristol to be articled to a solicitor in Lincoln's Inn, and, some ten years later, on his employer's death without a successor, he took over the practice in partnership with three other clerks in the office. Dissensions arose, and the arrangement broke down. Tobin eventually entered a new firm. *Bournemouth - Bournemouth Airport ''Base'' *Bristol - Bristol Airport ''Base'' *Derry - City of Derry Airport Emboldened by his success he denounced various Roman Catholics, married an Irish lady, and having become very popular lived in luxurious fashion. Afterwards his fortunes waned, and he died at Bristol on the 20th of August 1680. His dying depositions, which were taken by Sir Francis North (Francis North, 1st Baron Guilford), chief justice of the common pleas, revealed nothing of importance. Bedloe wrote a ''Narrative and impartial discovery of the horrid Popish Plot'' (1679), but all his statements are extremely untrustworthy.The Marchioness of Worcester, whose husband was the target of some of Bedloe's accusations called him " a man whose whole life has been a parade of villainy and whose word would not have been taken at sixpence". At Oates's trial for perjury, Jeffreys, who had happily condemned innocent men on Bedloe's accusations, called him "infamous Bedloe". background group_or_band origin Bristol, England genre Progressive house, progressive breaks, trance (trance music), chill out, downtempo past_members '''Way Out West''' are a UK (United Kingdom) progressive house, trance (trance music) and progressive breaks group from Bristol, England consisting of producers (record producers) and DJs (Disc Jockey) Jody Wisternoff and Nick Warren. They came to fame in the 1990s with chart hit "The Gift", and have since released four albums. Maas' first record, "The Final XS", was released in 1995. His second record release was a collaboration with another producer, Gary D, "Die Herdplatte", which was a bigger success than his first. Gary D also gained Maas a residency at Hamburg's famous club, The Tunnel, between 1994 and 1996. Through British contacts Maas played at the Bristol club Lakota. Maas also began to release records through record-labels such as Hope Recordings, both under his own name and the alias ''Orinoko''. Maas has also recorded under many aliases such as ''Mad Dogs'' and many others together with his manager and friend Leon Alexander. In 2000 Timo Maas began a residency alongside Deep Dish at the New York club Twilo. '''Outport''' is the name given in the United Kingdom for a subsidiary port built in deeper water than the original port. Webster's Dictionary definition The Port of Tilbury from the Port of London is a good example. Avonmouth and Bristol and, on a smaller and now historical scale, Fordwich and Canterbury are others. Background Clyn was probably born in Leinster some years prior to 1300, possibly at Baile a Clinn Clyn's town Clintstown, in the parish of Conahy, some six and a half miles north-west of Kilkenny. The surname Clyn is found in Somerset and Bristol, which may have been where his Anglo-Norman ancestors originated. In The Anarchy of King Stephen's (Stephen of England) reign the cause of the Empress Matilda was supported by her half brother, Robert of Gloucester (Robert, 1st Earl of Gloucester), who had rebuilt the castle at Bristol. The castles (List of castles in Gloucestershire) at Gloucester (Gloucester Castle) and Cirencester (Cirencester Castle) were also garrisoned on her behalf. Beverston Castle was also a site of the Stephen Matilda conflict. Television Mendip was set up as a C D group transmitter when it entered service with analogue PAL transmissions. In July 2007, Ofcom confirmed that it would remain a C D group transmitter at digital switchover. The mast broadcasts digital television over a large area of the west of England, including Somerset, Wiltshire, North Somerset, Bath and North-East Somerset, Bristol, South Gloucestershire and Southern Gloucestershire. The station also covers the coastal areas of south east Wales, and in the days of analogue TV, many households used it in preference to their more local station, Wenvoe (Wenvoe transmitting station). This is because prior to the digital switchover, Mendip carried Channel 4 and Channel 5 (Channel 5 (UK)), whereas Wenvoe only carried S4C, which broadcast a lot of Welsh language programming. Indeed many houses still have aerials directed at both stations. Power on analogue transmissions was 500 kW (erp) on channels 1 to 4 but only 126 kW on Channel 5. The latter was transmitted outside of the original C D grouping of the transmitter but most people in reasonable signal areas could receive it anyway, see aerial gain curves. All 6 digital multiplexes were transmitted at 10 kW until switchover in 2010 when the power on the "BBC A", "BBC B HD" and "D3&4" multiplexes was boosted to 100 kW. In 2011, SDN was boosted to 50 kW and in 2012 the remaining two Arqiva multiplexes will be boosted to 50 kW too. Mendip's population coverage is around 1.5 million, although some homes in the immediate vicinity, such as those in Cheddar are unable to receive a signal due to being in the shadow of the Mendip Hills and therefore have to depend on local relays. birth_date Commons:Category:Bristol Dmoz:Regional Europe United Kingdom England Bristol Wikipedia:Bristol

She graduated from Somerville Hall (now Somerville College, Oxford), with Honours in Modern History in 1895, and for a while taught courses through the Extension Division and at Darlington Training College. After the Second Boer War, she traveled to South Africa with a committee to investigate the resettlement of single working women from England to South Africa. In 1906 she married William Scoresby Routledge. The couple went to live among the Kikuyu people of what was then British East Africa, and in 1910 jointly published a book of their research entitled ''With A Prehistoric People''. Weapons are bought from the USA (United States), UK (United Kingdom), France or a private arms dealer. (Each country sells weapons that it itself produces, except the private dealer, who is a South African providing access to Soviet (Union of Soviet Socialist Republics) weaponry.) Each source offers a different range of weapons with different prices and most countries will only offer better weapons once a reasonable number of purchases have already been made (which establishes that a relationship has been built). Not all countries offer all the same weapons; for example, anti-SAM helicopters are only available from the USA and the private dealer. e Including Ethiopia. f South Africa, Zimbabwe, and other sub-Saharan countries. g Australia, New Zealand.

In temperate regions at middle and low altitudes: Argentine provinces of Salta (Salta Province), Tucuman (Tucumán Province) and Cordoba (Córdoba Province, Argentina); at 500 to 1500 m above sea level. Great Spotted Cuckoo and magpie: brood parasitism The parasitic Great Spotted Cuckoo (''Clamator glandarius'') and its magpie host, both native to Southern Europe, are completely sympatric species. However, the duration of their sympatry varies with location. For example, Great Spotted Cuckoos and their magpie hosts in Hoya de Gaudix, southern Spain, have lived in sympatry since the early 1960s, while species in other locations have more recently become sympatric. Great Spotted Cuckoos, when in South Africa, are sympatric with at least 8 species of starling and 2 crows - Pied Crow and Cape Crow. ''Roberts' Nests and Eggs'' - Warwick Tarboton (John Voelcker 2011) From 4pm, with the rally nearly officially over, contradictory reports began to arise. According to some sources, mounted riot police (officially used in an attempt to clear Whitehall of protesters) charged out of a side street into the crowd in Trafalgar Square. Whether intentional or not, this was interpreted by the mob as a provocation, fuelling anger in the Square where the police had already been pushing sections of crowd back into corners leaving no way out except through the police (kettling ?). At 4:30pm, four shielded police riot vans drove into the crowd (a tactic in dealing with mass demonstrations at the time) outside the South African Embassy (High Commission of South Africa, London), attempting to force through to the entrance to Whitehall where police were re-grouping. The crowd attacked the vans with wooden staves and scaffolding poles. Soon after, rioting began to escalate.
