What is Luxembourg known for?

single research

when they merged their executives in 1967. The project was unusual in that rather than consisting of a single research team, it had member groups distributed around the member countries, organised along language rather than national lines (for example, groups in Leuven and Utrecht worked closely together), and the secretariat was based at the European Commission in Luxembourg. While this contributed significantly to the culture of the project, it also demonstrated graphically Brooks (Frederick P. Brooks)' assertion in The Mythical Man-Month that adding personnel to a project results in it taking longer to complete; the more the number of groups involved, the more time is spent on administration and communication rather than actual research per se. Capriati had a strong fall season, winning her ninth career title at Luxembourg, defeating Magdalena Maleeva. She also finished runner up in Quebec City to Chanda Rubin and was a semifinalist in Zürich. These results propelled Capriati back into the top 20 for the first time since April 1994. She qualified for the season-ending championships for the first time in seven years. Her year-end ranking was 14, her highest in seven years. Capriati was also a member of the US Fed Cup Team, winning a singles and doubles rubber in the US's victory over Spain in the final.

Roman owners of villae had luxuries like hypocaust-heated rooms with mosaic floors. As the Roman Empire collapsed (Decline of the Roman Empire) in the fourth and fifth centuries, the rustic villas were more and more isolated and came to be protected by walls. Though in England the villas were abandoned, looted, and burned by Anglo-Saxon invaders in the fifth century, in other areas large working villas were donated by aristocrats and territorial magnates to individual monks, often

Standard Italian, adopted by the state after the unification of Italy, is based on Tuscan (Tuscan language) and is somewhat intermediate between the Italo-Dalmatian languages of the South and the Gallo-Italic languages of the North. Its development was also influenced by the other Italian dialects and by the Germanic language of post-Roman invaders (Migration period). Italian is also spoken in parts of Slovenia, Malta, Monaco, Luxembourg, Croatia and Corsica. The language is also used in Eritrea, Libya and Somalia, all ex-Italian colonies, and is also spoken in some emigrants' communities, especially in the United States, Canada, Argentina, Brazil and the United Kingdom. * In Ireland: Euro 2 * In Luxembourg: HEMA (HEMA (store)) * In Malta: Tal-Lira The war was brought close to home for the Athlones also because many of those belonging to displaced European royal families sought refuge in Canada and resided at or near the royal and viceroyal residence, Rideau Hall.

Denmark uses yellow plates for vehicles registered as commercial vehicles and in Sweden, Greece and Lithuania yellow plates are used for taxi vehicles. Belgium uses red characters and is the only country not to use the standard black-on-white or black-on-yellow combination; its European plates will have ruby red (RAL 3003) characters on a white background. In Norway, cars with front seats only (used for cargo) have green plates with black characters. Danish plates have a small holographic strip to the right of the blue EU strip. * The UK (United Kingdom) uses a system (Vehicle registration plates of the United Kingdom) based on the region where the car was first registered and the date of registration. * Belgium, Denmark, Iceland, Finland, Hungary, Latvia, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Portugal, Sweden and Bosnia and Herzegovina use plates that do not denote location. Since 2000 Spain no longer uses province codes on plates but codes like 'B' for Barcelona or 'M' for Madrid can still be seen, for cars registered before that date. * Italy (Vehicle registration plates of Italy), since 1999, has added a blue strip on either side. On the right one are the two digits of the year when the plate was issued (e.g. "99", "05", "08") and below that there may be an optional two-letter code for the province, such as "MO" for the Province of Modena.

July 28: Luxembourg – Norway 3-2, friendly It may well have been the presence of these Imbrechts-Engelbrechts that led to Rombaut Engelbrecht's decision to settle down in Mechelen. This Cologne man appears as a Mechelen merchant in the municipal accounts of Tournay in 1927. He bought the Mechelen burgership only after many years of residence. After Rombaut his brother Peter Engelbrecht became resident in Mechelen after 1450. Their father had been "Ratsherr" (Councillor) in Cologne. Peter and Heinrich, one of his brothers were councillors as well, as was a son of Peter. Peter or Petrus Engelbrecht, born around 1400, was probably a merchant of cloth and wool, and was very well off, with property in Antwerp, Mechelen and Luxembourg, and through his first wife in the duchy of Gulik (Duchy of Jülich) and in Cologne (Electorate of Cologne) in addition. He ordered a chapel to be added to the oldest parish church in Mechelen, employing a private chaplain and founding in his chapel a chantry chaplainry well endowed with property. Peter came to Mechelen after he had been involved in a murder in 1450, when he and his brother Rombaut were accused of killing a priest. As a result of this affair, he, Rombaut (a citizen of Mechelen at the time), and his sister who had married a Mechelen man, served prison sentences in Cologne. - 24 16 October 2002 Stade Josy Barthel, Luxembourg (Luxembourg (city)), Luxembourg Commons:Category:Luxembourg Dmoz:Regional Europe Luxembourg Wikipedia:Luxembourg

traditional phrase CORADIA LINT: A vehicle with many faces - Retrieved on 2010-05-01 Today, even though all western monarchies are constitutional, all political power having passed to the people (by referendum or, generally, elections), the now hollow traditional phrase "by the grace of God" is still included in the full titles and styles of the monarchs of Denmark, Liechtenstein, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom, but not in that of Belgium, Luxembourg, Monaco, Norway and Sweden. Like the use of the term "subject" for the citizens of a monarchy, "By the Grace of God" is a protocolary form that has survived the emancipation of the electorate from its once absolute rulers, which now only reign in name. The Přemyslid dynasty ruled until 1306 when the male line died out. The inheriting dynasty was the Luxembourg dynasty when Eliška Přemyslovna, sister of the last Přemyslid (Přemyslid dynasty) ruler, married John of Luxembourg. He was Her Majesty's Vice-Marshal of the Diplomatic Corps 1957-1965, then Ambassador to Luxembourg 1966-1970, and Ambassador to Panama 1971-1974.

'''Luxembourg''' (

As a representative democracy with a constitutional monarch (constitutional monarchy), it is headed by a grand duke, Henri, Grand Duke of Luxembourg, and is the world's only remaining grand duchy. Luxembourg is a developed country, with an advanced economy and the world's second highest GDP (PPP) per capita (List of countries by GDP (PPP) per capita) (after Qatar), according to the World Bank. Its central location has historically made it of great strategic importance to numerous powers, dating back to its founding as a Roman (Roman Empire) fortress (Fortification), its hosting of a vital Frankish (Kingdom of the Franks) castle during the Early Middle Ages, and its role as a bastion for the Spanish Road between 16th and 17th centuries.

Luxembourg is a member of the European Union, NATO, OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development), the United Nations, and Benelux, reflecting its political consensus in favour of economic (economic integration), political, and military integration. The city of Luxembourg (Luxembourg (city)), which is the capital (capital city) and largest city, is the seat of several institutions and agencies of the EU. On 18 October 2012, Luxembourg was elected to a temporary seat on the United Nations Security Council for the first time in its history. The country served on the Security Council from 1 January 2013 until 31 December 2014. http: en politics un-asselborn-s-final-security-council-meeting-54943bcb0c88b46a8ce49a8d Reflecting its geographic position, Luxembourg's culture is a fusion of Romanic (Romance language) and Germanic (Germanic languages) Europe, integrating customs of each. Accordingly, Luxembourg is a trilingual (multilingualism) country: Luxembourgish (Luxembourgish language), French (French language) and German (German language) are official languages. Although a secular state, Luxembourg is predominantly Roman Catholic.
