Wales

'''Gateholm''' is a small tidal island off the south west coast of Pembrokeshire in the south west side of Wales, in the west of the UK, and about 13km west of the port of Milford Haven. It is known for its Romano-British remains. Gateholm Island at the Megalithic Portal thumb right Middleholm (File:Midland Island also known as Middleholm - geograph.org.uk - 427473.jpg) '''Middleholm''', also known as '''Midland Island''', is a small island lying off southwest Pembrokeshire in Wales, southeast of Skomer. In Welsh the island is named after Saint David (''Dewi Sant''), the patron saint of Wales. It was the home of his confessor, Saint Justinian (Justinian of Ramsey Island). The nearest town, strictly a city, is St David's. Since the Government of Wales Act 2006 became law, there can be referendums in Wales asking the people whether the National Assembly for Wales should be given greater law making powers. The Welsh Labour Party - Plaid Cymru Coalition Government in the Welsh Assembly held such a referendum in 2011, resulting in a yes vote. The Sunday Closing (Wales) Act 1881 mandated that all public houses in Wales be closed on Sundays. The Act was extended to Monmouthshire (Monmouthshire (historic)) in 1921. Under the terms of the Licensing Act 1961, on the application of 500 local electors, a referendum could be held in each local government area at seven-year intervals on whether that district should be "wet" or "dry" on the Sabbath. Most districts in the border area and the southern industrial area went "wet" in 1961 or 1968, with most others following suit in 1975. In 1982, the last district, Dwyfor, in western Gwynedd, went "wet" and it was thought that the influence of the Sabbatarian temperance movement had expired and few referendums were called, but surprisingly a further referendum was called in Dwyfor in 1989 and the area went "dry" for another seven years on a 9% turnout. The whole of Wales was "wet" from 1996, and the facility for further referendums was removed by the Sunday Licensing Act 2003. The '''Welsh devolution referendum of 1997''' was a pre-legislative referendum held throughout Wales on 18 September 1997 to determine whether there was support for the creation of a assembly (Deliberative assembly) for Wales with devolved powers. Unlike the referendum in Scotland (Scottish devolution referendum, 1997), there was no proposal for the assembly to have tax-varying powers. The referendum was a Labour manifesto commitment and was held in their first term after the 1997 election (United Kingdom general election, 1997). The 1979 referendum (Welsh devolution referendum, 1979) had been such a resounding defeat that it killed off any prospects of devolution for Wales for a generation. Although the Welsh Liberal Party and Plaid Cymru became committed to a Welsh parliament (with full law making and tax raising powers) by 1983 it was not until 1992 that a Welsh Assembly with executive powers was put into the Labour Party (Labour Party (UK))'s manifesto. The Conservative Party (Welsh Conservative Party) in Wales remained almost wholly pro-unionist and anti-devolution. As the Conservative government in Wales became more unpopular the Labour party in Wales shaped its policy of a Welsh Assembly under the guidance of Shadow Welsh Secretary Ron Davies and Welsh Office spokesmen Win Griffith and Rhodri Morgan. The '''United Kingdom referendum of 1975''' was a post-legislative referendum held on 5 June 1975 in the United Kingdom to gauge support for the country's continued membership of the European Economic Community (EEC), often known as the Common Market at the time, which it had entered in 1973 under the Conservative (Conservative Party (UK)) government of Edward Heath. Labour (Labour Party (UK))'s manifesto for the October 1974 general election (United Kingdom general election, October 1974) promised that the people would decide "through the ballot box"

wider than the other) would not fit. Many buildings do not have the ground pin. Sockets and switches fit in American-sized standard boxes. - Church service Thomas served a mission to Japan for the LDS Church with his first wife, from 1907-1912. He was one of the first LDS missionaries (Mormon missionary) sent to Japan, and his first daughter, Chiyo, was born there. Elbert developed a deep love for the Japanese people and learned to speak Japanese fluently. He was the author of ''Sukui No Michi'', the Japanese translation of the Mormon tract ''Way of Salvation''. On his return from Japan, he became a Professor of Political Science and History at the University of Utah (where he had received his B.A. in 1906). He taught Latin, Greek and Japanese culture, as well as being a Political Science and History professor and eventually an Administrator on the Board of Regents at the University of Utah for many years. Traditional babywearing in Japan was done with a wrap carry, using an obi (sash). In the 1940s, a carrier known as the onbuhimo became popular. Similar to the Hmong and Mei tai carriers, the onbuhimo has long top straps and a rectangular body. But at the bottom of the rectangle, loops or rings allow the top straps to be threaded through and tightened, while the straps are tied at the waist. The body is much smaller than the bodies of most mei tais and other Asian-style carriers, and the onbuhimo is traditionally used on the back. Variations may have stiff headrests or padding in the body.
