History[ edit ] There is evidence of Neolithic settlement from burial chambers on Cotswold Edge, and there are remains of Bronze and Iron Age forts. The area still preserves numerous large, handsome Cotswold Stone “wool churches”. The affluent area in the 21st century has attracted wealthy Londoners and others who own second homes there or have chosen to retire to the Cotswolds. The name Cotswold is popularly attributed the meaning “sheep enclosure in rolling hillsides”,   incorporating the term, wold , meaning hills. However, the English Place-Name Society has for many years accepted that the term Cotswold is derived from Codesuualt of the 12th century or other variations on this form, the etymology of which was given, ‘Cod’s-wold’, which is ‘Cod’s high open land’. Cutsdean , Codeswellan, and Codesbyrig, some of which date back to the eighth century AD. The northern and western edges of the Cotswolds are marked by steep escarpments down to the Severn valley and the Warwickshire Avon. This feature, known as the Cotswold escarpment, or sometimes the Cotswold Edge, is a result of the uplifting tilting of the limestone layer, exposing its broken edge. The dip slope is to the southeast. On the eastern boundary lies the city of Oxford and on the west is Stroud.

The owner of a newly-imported Russian Mi-2 helicopter has had his aircraft grounded at California’s Hayward Airport while the FAA looks into allegations that he flew it without an Airworthiness Certificate and without locally-required insurance documents. Officials in Oakland, California, where pilot Thierry Thys was based, asked him for the documents, but when he couldn’t produce them and later flew the Mi-2 to nearby Hayward , the FAA was notified.
The pilot was not injured, and damage to the aircraft was relatively minor. The jet’s right wing tip struck the runway and started a small fire on the wing, which then started a grass fire at the airport. The aircraft suffered an unknown amount of damage. Both occupants were fatally injured, one of whom was the aircraft owner. The pilots were flying from Georgia to New Mexico, where the owner lived.
The Government of Nigeria has ordered the sale of over out-of-service and abandoned aircraft from around that country. It is not known what aircraft types are involved, but since at least some of the aircraft are rumored to have been dormant for many years, warbird- and vintage-aircraft collectors are scrambling to research the matter. The reporter was riding along as part of an interview he was conducting for a story on the pilot. Helicopter pilots Charlie Hollinger and Jack Kelly have begun the formation of a worldwide association dedicated to the Bell Model 47 helicopter, a versatile workhorse which has been in service for 50 years.
Accident investigators at the site of last month’s Aero Vodochody L Albatros crash near Denver, Colorado, USA, have reported that the rear-seat occupant of the aircraft may have jettisoned the canopy, either accidentally or intentionally. Since the aircraft was equipped with a self-destruct system, police were forced to close a nearby highway for several hours while an explosives-disposal team examined the site for unexploded charges in the aircraft.
US officials have asked China’s permission to examine the wreckage of two recently-discovered aircraft crash sites in the Lang Gong region of Tibet.

News Aigali Supugaliev, a year-old man from Kazakhstan, almost gave his relatives a heart attack when he returned home two months after they had buried his body. They had no idea that the unmarried man had been offered a four-month job on a distant farm, as he had not bothered to inform them about it, so when a decomposed body was discovered near his house, everyone feared the worse.

Corfield—was the owner of some pastoral country in the Burnett district, and described in glowing terms life in the Australian bush. I might say here this was not all it had been painted, but that by the way. And so it happened that on a cold, foggy morning in February, , I found myself with an old schoolmate—George Custard—on board of, as it was then customary to advertise, “the good ship, ‘City of Brisbane,’ 1, tons burthen, ‘Neville,’ Master,” which lay in Plymouth Sound, waiting her final complement of passengers for Queensland.
Henry Jordan, who was representing the Colony, came on board to address the passengers, who, he said, were going to a land of promise, where in the evening of his life, a man—as the reward of his labour—would sit in the shade of his own fig tree and enjoy the rest he had earned. Soon the capstan was manned, and the anchor lifted to the old chantey: For tinkers, and tailors, and lawyers, and all, Way!

History of Brisbane and Timeline of Brisbane Before the 19th century[ edit ] Indigenous Australians are believed to have lived in coastal South East Queensland for 32, years, with an estimated population between 6, and 20, individuals before white settlement. On 17 July , Flinders landed at what is now known as Woody Point , which he named “Red Cliff Point” after the red-coloured cliffs visible from the bay. The newly selected Brisbane region, at the time, was plagued by mosquitos.
These immigrants were selected and assisted through immigration programs established by John Dunmore Lang and Johann Christian Heussler and were offered free passage, good wages, and selections of land.

Seven seasons in and the Big Bash is just starting to lose its headway. Whether it’s because we’re coming to the end of a one-sided Ashes campaign or because the Big Bash tournament just keeps getting longer, the hottest ticket in town is starting to simmer. Put it down to poor results, but last night’s quarter-full MCG was hardly the sight that tournament organisers had hoped for. Only 26, attended the Melbourne Stars-Sydney Sixers fizzer on Tuesday night – little more than half the 46, that attended the corresponding fixture last year.
And with two more home games to come, that number is likely to fall further. Across the Big Bash an average of 25, people have gone through the gates this season, down from 30, – albeit a finals series is still to come.

This is the one thing that all of those involved at the coalface of the racing industry fear most and so do the punters, even those watching the race that stops the nation through a drunken haze. What the Cup day protesters have no intention of understanding is that fatalities happen in horse racing, just as they do on our roads.
