Henry Street
Henry Street is one of the biggest shopping streets in Dublin due to two large shopping centres (Jervis and Illac) and hundreds of individual shops along the street. It links the O’Connell Street with the Spire and then it becomes Mary Street but it’s considered to be just one street. The street was developed by Henry Moore, Earl of Drogheda as many other streets in the surrounding. He also named few of them after himself (Henry Street, Drogheda Street, Moore Street, Earl Street, etc.). Local people have no idea where the name comes from.

Leinster House
Leinster House lies on the Kildare Street near the Merrion Square and nowadays it’s a seat of the Parliament of Ireland, in Irish called Oireachtas. But it was built as a home for James Fitzgerald, the Earl of Kildare so it was called Kildare House. But after he became the Duke of Leinster, the house got a new name, the Leinster House. The unique Georgian house inspired many other important building in the world, particularly the White House in Washington DC. Facade open to the Kildare Street is designed as an city house. Despite the front- rear elevation of the house to the Merrion Square looks like a village house with large lawns. When asking Dubliners about the Leinster House, most of them knew its location and function but no one has never been there or wants to go there. Even the visits of sessions of Parliament are not interesting for them.

Merrion Square
Merrion Square is one of the most beautiful squares in the Dublin city centre in the south part of the city. There is a romantic park in the middle of the square and it’s lined by the Leinster House (see above), other government building, the National History Museum, National Gallery, Irish Red Cross and a lot of charming Georgian brick houses and from one side by the Leinster House (see above). In the middle of the square there is a park with a colourful statue of Oscar Wilde, famous Irish writer and former square resident and collection of lamps from different eras. For the Irish there is a small memory of the incident know as Bloody Sunday. The British Embassy was placed here and destroyed during it in 1972. All the victims remembers “the National Memorial to Members of the Defence Forces who died in the Service of the State”, a modern pyramid-shaped monument right in the middle of the park. But for most people it’s just a nice place to take a rest, particularly if they prefer something quieter than St. Stephen Green, which is 5 minutes by walk from here.

Samuel Beckett Bridge
Samuel Beckett Bridge is a modern cable-stayed bridge, which was opened to traffic at the end of 2009. The bridge was designed by a Spanish bridge-specialist Santiago Calatrava. It’s located in the Docklands and connects Guild Street on the north with Sir John Rogerson’s Quay on the south. It has 4 traffic lines and special lines for cyclists and pedestrians too. With the Ha’penny Bridge are considered to be icons of the city. The sharp of the bridge reminds a harp, which is a symbol of the whole country. The bridge is called by the Dubliner writer Samuel Beckett, who became famous for his drama Waiting for Godot. In some Dubliners’ opinion it has improved the Dublin’s face together with the Convention Centre and it’s a good viewing point as well. In 2013 the Guinness World Record in the longest river dance line was broken here – it was an exceptional event.

St. Stephen’s Green
St. Stephen’s green belongs to the most favourite parks in Dublin. It’s located to the south from the river Liffey near Grafton Street. It was open to public in the year 1880 and offers its visitors a lot of trees, flowers, lakes, water birds, footpaths, benches and memorials of famous Irish e. g. James Joyce bust, statue of Lord Ardilaun, the donator from the Guinness family and monument of the revolutionary Wolfe Tone, for Dubliners known as Tonehange. It’s a popular place for walks connected with feeding swans, seagulls, ducks and pigeons. Students from schools nearby come here in the warm months to learn and young lovers to have their romantic moments. All of them appreciate a big park right in the city centre a lot. Unfortunately some of the citizens know the park just because of the near shopping area and the big luas stop.

Sandymount Strand
Sandymount Strand is one of the largest beaches in Dublin surroundings. It’s located near the Sandymount, the south Dublin suburb and it’s a vital part of the Dublin Bay. It’s a popular final destination not only for the weekend walks. When there is a low tide the beach is so long, that it’s almost not possible to see the sea. When the weather is beautiful there are runners, dog persons, playing children, lovers and other people everywhere. On every step there are signs warning visitors of dangerous of incoming tide, because it’s really fast and could strands people going to much far from the coast.

National Leprechaun Museum
Leprechaun is a specific kind of fairy with magical abilities from the Irish mythology. When the Irish are missing something, they say that the Leprechaun took it or hid it. In these days is the Leprechaun one of the symbols of Ireland and he’s on all souvenirs. The visitors of the National Leprechaun Museum will learn about Irish and Celtic folklore and culture in a funny way. The museum is situated on the Jervis Street. The Irish mostly even don’t know that a museum such like this exists. For the rest of them it’s just another way how to gain from the tourists as much money as possible. An educational benefit has been reduced at the expense of joy.

Anna Livia
Anna Livia is a statue from a sculptor Éamonn O’Doherty, located in the Croppies Memorial Park near the Heuston station on the north bank of the river Liffey. The monument was unveiled in 1998 at the occasion of the 1000th anniversary of the city. Actually it’s a personification of river Liffey itself and the sculptor has found the inspiration in the James Joyce’s book Finnegans Wake. It looks like a super human sized lady with long hair covering her private parts, lying in the stream of water. The monument was originally situated right in the middle of the O’Connell Street but was moved in 2001 to free up the space for the Spire. The Dubliners call it “the Floozie in the Jacuzzi” or “the Hoor in the Sewer” and for them it’s a nice place when waiting for a train. They didn’t like the previous location of Anna Livia; because strange people had the meeting point right there and it caused a lot of problems, but some of them even don’t know where it is located now.

The Brazen Head Pub
The Brazen Head is the oldest pub in Dublin situated on the Lower Bridge Street. It was founded in 1198 as a carriage house. In the past many famous Irish used to visit this pub, including James Joyce, who also mentioned it in his book Ulysses, and Jonathan Swift, another famous Irish writer famous for his book Gulliver’s Travels and some people say that Robin Hood have drunk here. The pub attracts visitors on its long tradition, popularity, live music and stories already mentioned. The majority of the visitors are tourists, who are willing to pay little bit more for beer and food as well. The Irish visit this pub just occasionally and don’t feel well here, because it’s more tourist attraction than a pub. But for tourists it’s a pub celebrity – the must see.

Dublin Castle
Dublin Castle is the biggest complex of Irish government buildings. You can find it near Dame Street in the south part of the Dublin city. It was built in 1204 as a part of defence system in the times of Norman invasion. Later it functioned as a seat of court, prison, treasury and residence of representatives of the British Empire. The major part of the castle is open to public just if you take a guided tour which takes the visitors to the State Apartments and medieval Undercroft. The Chapel Royal and The Chester Beatty Library are accessible free of charge. There are also two museums in the castle complex – The Revenue Museum and The Garda Museum, which is currently closed for due to renovations. The residents visit the Dublin Castle mostly in time of special events and shows. Most of them have never taken the tour, but I will, although it’s not a typical castle towering over the city and it’s quite hidden among other buildings.

Letter to the Office of the Chief Fire Officer. 17 1.0 Proposed Research Question: A review of the current arrangements for dealing with major flooding incidents in Dublin, and suggested improvements that enhance both organisational response capacity and community resilience for such events. 1.1 Rationale for study Recent events have exposed vulnerabilities around the Dublin Fire Brigade’s (DFB’s) ability to maintain business continuity whilst conducting major flooding incident operations. Enhanced preparedness, better public and community engagement, and specialised asset acquisition will be examined as methods of increasing organisational resilience, whilst keeping the most vulnerable people within the affected communities safer. A report by the Dublin Assistant City Manager into the recent 2011 flooding incident highlights these challenges. It states that, ‘it was not possible to respond to all requests for assistance’ (Lyons, 2011 p 10) and that ‘at the height of the emergency all available personnel and pumping fire appliances were deployed’ (ibid).

Examine the View That Cults and Sects Have Taken the Place of Established Churches as the Most Important Religious and Spiritual Movements on Today’s Society

...Examine the view that cults and sects have taken the place of established churches as the most important religious and spiritual movements on today’s society Churches are large organisations often with millions of members. Sects are usually a break away from a church usually because of disagreement and cults are new religions such as Scientology. The view that sects and cults are more important than the church may be due to the fact there are many of these new religious movements gaining status and becoming well known in certain societies. The reason they may be seen as more important than the church may be due to the fact the church is losing members and attendance is low whereas new religious movements are gaining more members and are becoming more socially accepted. People these days are now more individualistic due to modernity. They do things that benefit themselves rather than society for example young people believe in spirituality as it aims to improve the individual. Stark and Bainbridge say sects offer other worldly benefits such as a place in heaven and cults offer worldly benefits in this life. This could be a reason that they seem to be more important than church as people rather follow the new religious movements as opposed to the church because they are fulfilling the individuals need to feel they may have a better life now and after death . This could also be showing that people feel so oppressed in this life that they need to follow a new religious......

...Eat plenty of vegetables, legumes and fruits a) This is important because we get many vitamins and minerals from these food groups. We need these micronutrients to perform and regulate many different functions in the body. We also get some energy from sugar and starch. Each type of fruit and vegetable gives us different nutrients, so we should make sure to eat several serves each day of different ones. We can also get some fibre from legumes, and a little from other vegetables and fruit. Fibre helps us avoid constipation, decreases our risk of colo-rectal cancer, slows down the absorption of sugar and is good for the health of our GI tract. a) I did not eat enough fruit or vegetables. On one of the days I ate no vegetables at all, and on the other two days I ate only two or three serves of salad. The guidelines tell me that I should eat five serves of vegetables each day. I ate one piece of fruit every day, but I should eat two so this isn’t enough. b) I hate vegetables so I rarely eat them. I do eat some kinds of salad (e.g. tabbouleh) but I can’t stand cooked vegetables. My family doesn’t eat vegetables as part of our diet, so there is no encouragement for me to eat them. I like fruit and I make sure to eat it every day because I know it’s a healthier snack than chocolate or crisps, but I didn’t know that I should eat two serves every day....

Travel Guide of Dublin

...Travel guide of Dublin By Alexander P. Vinther As I stumbled out of a club called “The Mess” in the Temple Bar-area with the tunes of Journeys “Don’t Stop Believing” bursting trough my mind, I thought to myself: “This has been one hell of a trip!” It was our last evening in Dublin and it would be an underestimation to call it anything but absolutely brilliant! It started with a two-course dinner where I among other things had a rib-eye steak grilled to perfection and then of course a pint of Guinness to support it. A couple of the guys and I then went on to our “regular” bar, and by “regular” I mean: “We had been there a few times.” Here we listened to probably the best musician I have ever seen. He was a white man with long blond dreadlocks hanging from the top of his head, and it was not just the fact that he absolutely mastered the guitar; he also played a drum and a mouth organ to the verge of flawlessness, and don’t even get me started on his voice, it was just brilliant. Sadly for me, I was so stupid not to get his name written down anywhere, so for now he’s just remains a mystery. On that experience we marched on down the street with cosy and harmony-filled pubs surrounding us and ended up at a new pub where another musical experience was awaiting us. “Badass-Bar” was the name, and as lame that might sound it was in fact one of the best places we visited that night. A young fellow was seated here with his guitar, where he played a lot of classics and we all sang......

An Important Place in My Life

...R H D EN120 English Composition I Assignment 2_02 Description Paragraph January 9, 2015 Topic: An important place in my life As a German immigrant in the USA, I can clearly say, that my hometown of Ulm, Germany, is one of the most important places in my life. Situated on the river Danube, early settlements of the city were reported around 5000 BC. After being declared an imperial city in the 12th century, Ulm’s economy blossomed and the foundation for a bright future was laid. The city welcomed various medieval kings and emperors, accommodating their travels. Up to the 16th century, Ulm became a city of traders and craftsmen with important trading routes spreading all the way to Italy. The discovery of the New World, the Thirty Years’ War in Europe and the invasion by the French and Bavarian negatively impacted the city up to the 19th century; Ulm’s fortifications were destroyed and the city lost its status of being an imperial city. With the help of industrialization in the second half of the 19th century, Ulm regained its strength and transformed into an important industrial center, expanding beyond its medieval walls. During World War II, a large area of Ulm’s medieval city center was destroyed; consequently, the bombings caused thousands of people to become homeless. After the war, in the 1950s and 60s, Ulm was rebuild, and important landmarks restored. The city is known for the world’s highest church steeple, the fishermen quarter with its cobblestone alleys, a......

Such great workplaces have carefully identified those factors critical to their long-term success, for example, those services and/or facilities they must do, and continue to do, exceptionally well, as well as their specific vision for the future, what our workplace will likely be in five to ten years. To clearly assign duty and employee roles, great workplace need to develop detailed action plans and accompanying areas of responsibility to insure that their vision for the future is more than dream work; it is concrete, actionable, measurable and achievable. Great workplaces have rules and policies that are reasonable, understandable, and, perhaps most importantly, fairly and uniformly enforced. For example, smoking is prohibited in the work environment, no one smokes: neither President nor dishwasher. The rules and policies at great workplaces are neither capricious nor arbitrary. They should write in common language which is used in company. For example, the policies should be written in English in California (not Mandarin Chinese or Spanish, or technical or mysterious language that specific people could comprehend).

Again, there are vast amounts of information, virtually my whole life's story, that has yet to be revealed to you. As we get to know and trust each other, I will then feel more comfortable disclosing more intimate details about myself. This process is called: "Self-disclosure." 4. The "unknown" quadrant represents things that neither I know about myself, nor you know about me. For example, I may disclose a dream that I had, and as we both attempt to understand its significance, a new awareness may emerge, known to neither of us before the conversation took place. Being placed in new situations often reveal new information not previously known to self or others. For example, I learned of the Johari window at a workshop conducted by a Japanese American psychiatrist in the early 1980's. During this workshop, he created a safe atmosphere of care and trust between the various participants. Usually, I am terrified of speaking in public, but I was surprised to learn that in such an atmosphere, the task need not be so daunting.

...Why is International Trade important? International trade takes the world’s economy to the top position. It is important to carry out the trading at international level as some of the resources that are available in some countries are not available in others. So those people who do not have the resources with them can have the resources by importing them from other countries. So, trading becomes important and necessary in this scenario. Trading internationally involves sending what the native country produces the best to other countries and buying what other countries are producing best. This trading can improve the economy of the native country and helps in development of the country. International trading decreases poverty, generates employment, develops the economy and increases the income of the nation. The country which is in developing stage can consider the international trade as an advantage as it brings lot of financial gains to it. The funds that are acquired through trading internationally can be utilized in their best for the needs of the people in the country. Most of the developing countries tend to improve industrialization. But, they also were observed to get the raw materials available as resources with them to the international market. Some of these materials include timber, agricultural products and minerals. The Sub Saharan African nations earn about ninety percent of their income through international trading by exporting the raw......

They all perform in Maltese. Spain and Portugal have also had singer-songwriter traditions, which are sometimes said to have drawn on Latin elements. Spain is known for the Nova Cançó tradition — exemplified by Joan Manuel Serrat and Lluis Llach; the Portuguese folk/protest singer and songwriter José Afonso helped lead a revival of Portuguese folk culture, including a modernized, more socially-aware form of fado called nova canção. Following Portugal's Carnation Revolution of 1974, nova canção became more politicized and was known as canto livre. Another important Spain singer-songwriters are Joaquín Sabina, José Luis Perales and Luis Eduardo Aute . In the latter part of the 1960s and into the 70s, socially and politically aware singer-songwriters like Silvio Rodríguez and Pablo Milanés emerged in Cuba, birthing a genre known asnueva trova.
