First a few images. Hover your mouse over each thumbnail to read the subject matter. The operational dates above are surely not perfect. A"best effort" at a sequence, if you will. If you can refine the information, do be in touch. Information on the history of"Blumer" of Sunderland seems to be quite limited. But much of the data that follows is thanks to the efforts of Ray Ranns, who lives near Melton Mowbray in Leicestershire, U.
Ray has been most busy assembling data about the family history, building upon materials assembled by his father"Noel Blumer Ranns". Of which John Blumer was one. But you should also know that the Blumer family was involved in shipbuilding in nearby Hartlepool. While the business was mainly in the repair of ships they did keep their workforce busy with new construction when the repair business was quiet.
And they built 10 vessels during the short lifetime of the firm. Which ceased to exist at or about the time that George Blumer died in

His first mission was to clear the seas of French naval forces between England to the northern coast of Spain to allow for the landing of supporting troops near the French border at Fuenterrabia. The fleet consisted of 18 ships, among them the large ships the Regent and the Peter Pomegranate, carrying over 5, men. Howard"s expedition led to the capture of twelve Breton ships and a four-day raiding tour of Brittany where English forces successfully fought against local forces and burned numerous settlements.

But one year on, a report has found that the rate of people killed or seriously injured has gone up in seven out of the 13 new 20mph zones. The review of the traffic control measures warns that this is a problem nationally, adding: The Conservative councillor said: I"m pretty sure the 20mph zones will stay in place for the foreseeable future. The reductions had been seen in central Bath whilst the worsening was largely in outlying rural areas.
Again, this is reflective of the national situation. In the Department for Transport reviewed the scheme in Portsmouth , one of the first areas to adopt it, and found that number of people killed or seriously injured on affected roads actually went up, not down, after the limit was lowered.

It is an opportunity for us to reflect on the language and ideas that represented each year. So, take a stroll down memory lane to remember all of our past Word of the Year selections. Change It wasn"t trendy , funny, nor was it coined on Twitter , but we thought change told a real story about how our users defined Unlike in , change was no longer a campaign slogan. But, the term still held a lot of weight.

History[ edit ] For more details on this topic, see Maritime history. Throughout history sailing has been instrumental in the development of civilization, affording humanity greater mobility than travel over land, whether for trade, transport or warfare, and the capacity for fishing. The earliest representation of a ship under sail appears on a painted disc found in Kuwait dating between and BCE. There were improvements in sails, masts and rigging ; improvements in marine navigation, including the cross tree and charts of both the sea and constellations, allowed more certainty in sea travel.
From the 15th century onwards, European ships went further north, stayed longer on the Grand Banks and in the Gulf of St.

Great crowds gathered for all three nights of this three-day event with Saturday"s show reeling in the largest crowd ever in the year history of Portsmouth Raceway Park. There were race teams with 79 Late Models and 85 Modifieds, over RVs in the camping area, and an estimated crowd of 8, people in the stands on Saturday night alone.
The fans were not disappointed with a lack of action. Thursday evening was all about the Modifieds. The night featured time trials, eight heats, four B-Mains, and a non-qualifiers race. The Late Models took center stage on Friday with 16 total heats, which were broken into two rounds of eight with passing points being used to lock in the top 16 for Saturday"s feature as well as to line up up the B-Mains. On Saturday there were three B"s, the Modified Feature presented by www.
Of the nearly 80 Late Model drivers who participated in the event, only 28 of them were lucky enough to qualify for Saturday"s feature lineup. Of those 28 drivers, 11 different states were represented with the top seven finishers hailing from seven different states.

Retired railwaymen and steam fans gathered at Guildford railway station on Farnham Road bridge on Sunday July 9 for the unveiling of a plaque to commemorate Guildford"s engine shed that closed exactly 50 years ago. In his speech to around 40 people who gathered at the pedestrian entrance to the car park, Geoff Burch said -"It doesn"t seem that long ago when Pat Kinsella and I departed from here aboard our respective locomotives BR Standard Class 5 Nos and to go light-engines to Salisbury, not forgetting the other drivers and firemen who left here that day.
This occasion was originally an idea of another old steam colleague, Bill Moore, who thought it would be a good idea for a few of us to meet up here and go for a drink afterwards. However, Bill Bunce, Pat Kinsella and I put our heads together and came up with an idea which has ended up a full-blown plaque unveiling ceremony! Also I must thank the following people who have generously made donations towards the costs of the plaque; without them, it wouldn"t have been possible:
This would have coincided with the controversial dissolution of the monasteries that resulted in a major influx of funds into the royal treasury.

History of Technology Heroes and Villains - A little light reading Here you will find a brief history of technology. Initially inspired by the development of batteries, it covers technology in general and includes some interesting little known, or long forgotten, facts as well as a few myths about the development of technology, the science behind it, the context in which it occurred and the deeds of the many personalities, eccentrics and charlatans involved.
You may find the Search Engine , the Technology Timeline or the Hall of Fame quicker if you are looking for something or somebody in particular. Scroll down and see what treasures you can discover. Background We think of a battery today as a source of portable power, but it is no exaggeration to say that the battery is one of the most important inventions in the history of mankind. Volta"s pile was at first a technical curiosity but this new electrochemical phenomenon very quickly opened the door to new branches of both physics and chemistry and a myriad of discoveries, inventions and applications.
The electronics, computers and communications industries, power engineering and much of the chemical industry of today were founded on discoveries made possible by the battery. Pioneers It is often overlooked that throughout the nineteenth century, most of the electrical experimenters, inventors and engineers who made these advances possible had to make their own batteries before they could start their investigations. They did not have the benefit of cheap, off the shelf, mass produced batteries.
For many years the telegraph, and later the telephone, industries were the only consumers of batteries in modest volumes and it wasn"t until the twentieth century that new applications created the demand that made the battery a commodity item. In recent years batteries have changed out of all recognition. No longer are they simple electrochemical cells. Today the cells are components in battery systems, incorporating electronics and software, power management and control systems, monitoring and protection circuits, communications interfaces and thermal management.
