In Singapore, the '''Central Area''' or Central Business District (Central business district) (CBD) contains the core financial and commercial districts, including eleven urban planning areas (urban planning areas in Singapore), namely Downtown Core, Marina East, Marina South, Museum (Museum Planning Area), Newton (Newton, Singapore), Orchard (Orchard Road), Outram (Outram, Singapore), River Valley, Rochor, Singapore River and Straits View as defined by the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA). Part of the Central Region (Central Region, Singapore) in the southern part of Singapore, it includes high value land intensely regulated by the URA's urban planning initiatives. It approximately equates to the area which may be referred to as ''the city'' despite Singapore being a city in itself. There has always been a high flow of traffic within the CBD due to its identity as the core of the financial centre in Singapore, resulting in a high density of offices in this area of the city. This leads to a large amount of people commuting to and from the city to work everyday. In a bid to prevent congestion (traffic congestion) in the city, the Government (Government of Singapore) has implemented several different measures to curb the problem. For example, 5 more ERP (Electronic Road Pricing (Singapore)) gantries were erected in the CBD since July 2008. The operating hours of these gantries are also tweaked to accurately reflect the traffic situation in the CBD. A multistory automated car park has also been constructed to allow workers around the area to park their cars with a peace of mind and it is also very convenient as the driver does not have to waste the time to find a parking lot. The '''Singapore Open''' is a golf tournament in Singapore that has been sanctioned by the Asian Tour from that tour's inception in 1995 and by the European Tour since 2009 (2009 European Tour). It was founded in 1961 and was staged annually until 2001, when it was won by Thaworn Wiratchant. It was then cancelled for lack of sponsorship. Other winners in the years leading up to this included American Shaun Micheel in 1998, who went on to win the 2003 PGA Championship.

claim they were practicing the lines for the Moulin Rouge's new show, "Spectacular Spectacular". With the help of Zidler, Toulouse-Lautrec and the rest of the troupe pitch the show to the Duke with an improvised plot about an evil maharajah attempting to woo an Indian courtesan who is in love with a poor sitar player ("The Pitch (Spectacular Spectacular)"). The Duke agrees to back the show on the condition that only he is allowed to see Satine. Meanwhile, Satine contemplates on Christian and her longing to leave the Moulin Rouge to become "a real actress" (One Day I'll Fly Away). Christian later goes back to Satine to convince her that she loves him ("Elephant Love Medley"). As the cabaret is converted to a theater, Christian and Satine continue seeing each other under the pretense of rehearsing Satine's lines. The Duke becomes jealous and warns Zidler that he may stop financing the show; Zidler arranges for Satine to dine with the Duke that evening, but during practice she falls ill (Gorecki). That night, Zidler makes excuses to the Duke, claiming that Satine has gone to confession ("Like a Virgin (Like a Virgin (song))"). Zidler learns that Satine's tuberculosis has worsened, and that she does not have long to live. Satine tries to convince Christian that their relationship endangers the show, but he counters by writing a secret love song into the show to affirm their love ("Come What May (Come What May (2001 song))").

pop (Pop music) group best known to audiences in the West (Western world) in their later incarnation as a duo of Maki Nomiya and Yasuharu Konishi. The group, widely credited (along with Flipper's Guitar) with spearheading the shibuya-kei movement of Tokyo in the 1990s, is known for eclectic and energetic compositions that often sound like "new" releases from the late 1960s hipster scene. The catchphrase "A New Stereophonic Sound Spectacular" captured the group's ironic stance and eager attitude. The group broke up in March 2001. Contribution to commentarial tradition He wrote commentaries on virtually all of the most influential Mahāyāna (Mahayana) scriptures, altogether including over eighty works in over two hundred fascicles. Among his most influential works were the commentaries he wrote on the ''Awakening of Faith'', ''Nirvana Sutra'' and ''Vajrasamādhi Sutra (Vajrasamadhi-sutra)'', along with his exposition on the meaning of the two hindrances, the ''ijangui''. These were treated with utmost respect by leading Buddhist scholars in China and Japan, and served to help in placing the ''Awakening of Faith'' as the most influential text in the Korean tradition. Throughout the 1930s, the RCN, along with its sister services, was starved of funding and equipment. Nevertheless, this decade saw the RCN slowly begin its rebuilding, as Ottawa joined London, Paris, and Washington (Washington, D.C.) in a growing apprehension of the ramifications of Nazi Germany's rearmament and the adventurism of Italy and Japan, and procured two more destroyers from the Royal Navy: HMCS ''Ottawa'' (HMCS Ottawa (H60)) and HMCS ''Restigouche'' (HMCS Restigouche (H00)). By the outbreak of war in September 1939, however, the RCN still had only six River class destroyers (Canadian River class destroyer), five minesweepers (Fundy class minesweeper) and two small training vessels, German, Tony, The sea is at our gates: The History of the Canadian Navy, McClelland and Stewart 1990, ISBN 0-7710-3269-2 p.71 Marc Milner, "The Roots of Expansion: Navy, Part 18", ''Legion Magazine'', 01 November 2006.

In Britain (Great Britain), gooseberry bushes are often found in copses and hedgerows and about old ruins, but the gooseberry has been cultivated for so long that it is difficult to distinguish wild bushes from feral ones, or where the gooseberry fits into the native flora of the island. Common as it is now on some of the lower slopes of the Alps of Piedmont (Piedmont (Italy)) and Savoy, it is uncertain whether the Romans (ancient Rome) were acquainted with the gooseberry, though it may possibly be alluded to in a vague passage of Pliny the Elder's ''Natural History (Pliny's Natural History)''; the hot summers of Italy, in ancient times as at present, would be unfavourable to its cultivation. Although gooseberries are now abundant in Germany and France, it does not appear to have been much grown there in the Middle Ages, though the wild fruit was held in some esteem medicinally (Pharmacology) for the cooling properties of its acid juice in fevers; while the old English (English language) name, ''Fea-berry'', still surviving in some provincial dialects, indicates that it was similarly valued in Britain, where it was planted in gardens at a comparatively early period. German (Germany) record company Odeon (Odeon Records) is often said to have pioneered the "album" in 1909 when it released the "Nutcracker Suite" by Tchaikovsky on 4 double-sided discs in a specially designed package. (It is not indicated what size the records are.) However, Deutsche Grammophon had produced an album for its complete recording of the opera ''Carmen'' in the previous year. The practice of issuing albums does not seem to have been widely taken up by other record companies for many years; however, HMV provided an album, with a pictorial cover, for the 1917 recording of ''The Mikado'' (Gilbert & Sullivan). During this period of diplomatic work he acquired an exceptional knowledge of the affairs of Europe, and in particular of Germany, and displayed great tact and temper in dealing with the Swedish senate (Parliament of Sweden), with Queen Ulrica (Ulrike Eleonora of Sweden), with King Frederick IV of Denmark and King Frederick William I of Prussia (Friedrich Wilhelm I of Prussia). But he was not qualified to hold his own in the intrigues of Court and Parliament in London. Named Secretary of State for the Southern Department on his return home, he soon became helplessly in conflict with the intrigues of Townshend (Charles Townshend, 2nd Viscount Townshend) and Sir Robert Walpole. History The Forum was founded in 1971 by Klaus Schwab, a German-born (Germany) business professor at the University of Geneva. Pigman. pp. 6–22. Originally named the "European Management Forum", it changed its name to the World Economic Forum in 1987 and sought to broaden its vision further to include providing a platform for resolving international conflicts. Information in SIS is shared among institutions of the participating countries in the Schengen Agreement Application Convention (SAAC).

Currently, the Schengen Information System is used by 27 countries. Among the current participants, Iceland, Norway, and Switzerland are not members of the European Union. Uses in early aviation and aeromodelling Castor oil was the preferred lubricant for rotary engines, such as the Gnome engine (Gnome et Rhône) after that engine's widespread adoption for aviation in Europe in 1909. It was used almost universally by the rotary engined Allied aircraft in World War I. Germany had to make do with inferior ersatz oil for its rotary engines, which resulted in poor reliability. '''Herborn''' is a historic town on the Dill (Dill (river)) in the Lahn-Dill (Lahn-Dill-Kreis) district of Hesse in Germany. Before World War I, it was granted its own title as ''Nassauisches Rothenburg''. The symbol or mascot of this town is a bear.
