Denmark Hill

Denmark Hill is an area and road in Camberwell, in the London Borough of Southwark. It is a sub-section of the western flank of the Norwood Ridge, centred on the long, curved Ruskin Park slope of the ridge; the area and road is said to have acquired its name from Queen Anne's husband, Prince George of Denmark, who hunted there. It is part of the A215 which north of its main foot, Camberwell Green, becomes Camberwell Road and south of Red Post Hill becomes named Herne Hill, another district, its postcode is SE5. North-east and south-easterly slopes of the same eminence are named Grove Hill and Dog Kennel Hill, on top of which the summit is shared with Champion Hill, the only divide being proximity to the respective two affluent streets which intersection on Camberwell descent. From Camberwell Green northwards the land is much lower and gently sloped as in northern Brixton at its other foot, in the west. There are good views across central London from vantage points. On a clear day some viewers can read the time on the Big Ben clockface.

In John Cary's map of 1786 the area is shown as Dulwich Hill. The only building apparent is the "Fox under the Hill"; the present "Fox on the Hill" pub is a hundred yards or so further up, on the site of former St Matthew's Vicarage adjacent to a triangle of land rumoured to be a "plague pit" or burial ground. The name of the area was changed in honour of the husband of Prince George of Denmark; the area is home of the Maudsley Hospital and King's College Hospital, of Ruskin Park, named after John Ruskin, who once lived nearby. The preface to his work Unto This Last is dated "Denmark Hill, 10th May, 1862"; the Institute of Psychiatry is based behind the Maudsley Hospital, a school of King's College London. The college has a hall of residence east so at Champion Hill; the Salvation Army's William Booth Memorial Training College on Champion Park, designed by Giles Gilbert Scott was completed in 1932. It has a similar monumental impressiveness to Gilbert Scott's other South London buildings, Battersea Power Station and Bankside Power Station, although its simplicity is the result of repeated budget cuts during its construction: much more detail, including carved Gothic stonework surrounding the windows, was planned.

Shepherd's Bush F. C. played in the area as Old St Stephen's F. C. Denmark Hill has a major transport interchange served by London Overground and Thameslink rail services and London Buses. Denmark Hill railway station is served by Southeastern services to London Victoria via Bexleyheath and Dartford via Bexleyheath.

Ignacy Domeyko

Ignacy Domeyko or Domejko, pseudonym: Żegota was a Polish geologist and educator. Domeyko spent most of his life, died, in his adopted country, Chile. After a youth passed in partitioned Poland, Domeyko participated in the Polish November 1830 Uprising against the Russian Empire. Upon its suppression, he was forced into exile and spent part of his life in France before settling in Chile, of which he became a citizen, he lived some 50 years in Chile and made major contributions to the study of that country's geography and mineralogy. His observations on the circumstances of poverty-stricken miners and of their wealthy exploiters had a profound influence on those who would go on to shape Chile's labor movement. Domeyko is seen as having had close ties to several countries and thus in 2002, when UNESCO organized a series of commemorations of the 200th anniversary of his birth, he was referred to as "a citizen of the world". Domeyko was born at a manor house located within the Russian partition of the former Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, at Niedźwiadka Wielka Manor near Nieśwież, Minsk Governorate, Imperial Russia.

The Domeyko family held the Polish coat of arms Dangiel. His father, Hipolit Domeyko, president of the local land court, died when Ignacy was seven years old. In his youth he was a subject of the Russian Empire. Domeyko, had been brought up in the culture of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, a multicultural state whose educated and dominant classes had spoken Polish as a lingua franca and that, shortly before Domeyko's birth, had been dismembered in the partitions of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. For this reason, because Domeyko subsequently spent most of his life in Chile, he is considered a person of national importance to Poles, Belarusians and Chileans. Domeyko enrolled at Vilnius University known as the Imperial University of Vilna, in 1816 as a student of mathematics and physics, he studied under Jędrzej Śniadecki. Involved with the Philomaths, a secret student organisation dedicated to Polish culture and the restoration of Poland's independence, he was a close friend of Adam Mickiewicz.

In 1823–24, during the investigation and trials of the Philomaths and Mickiewicz spent months incarcerated at Vilnius' Uniate Basilian monastery. After participating in the November 1830 Uprising, in which Domeyko served as an officer under General Dezydery Chłapowski, in 1831 Domeyko was forced into exile in order not to face Russian reprisals. Journeying through Germany, he arrived in France, where he would earn an engineering degree at Paris' École des Mines, he studied at the Sorbonne and maintained his political engagements with Belarusians and Lithuanians. In 1838 Domeyko left for Chile. There he made substantial contributions to mineralogy and the technology of mining, studied several unknown minerals, advocated for the civil rights of the native tribal peoples, was a meteorologist and ethnographer, he is credited with introducing the metric system to Latin America. He served as a professor at a mining college in Coquimbo and after 1847 at the University of Chile, of which he was rector for 16 years.

Domeyko gained Chilean citizenship in 1849, but declared at the time that "I may now never change my citizenship, but God grants me hope that wherever I may be—whether in the Cordilleras or in Paneriai—I shall die a Lithuanian." The term "Lithuanian" at that time, designated any inhabitant, whatever his ethnicity, of the territories of the former Grand Duchy of Lithuania. In 1884 Domeyko returned for an extended visit to Europe and remained there until 1889, visiting his birthplace and other places in the former Commonwealth, as well as Paris and Jerusalem. In 1887 he was awarded an honorary doctorate in Kraków. In 1889, soon after returning to Santiago, Domeyko died. Named for Domeyko are the mineral domeykite, the shellfish Nautilus domeykus, the genus Domeykosaurus, the ammonite Amonites domeykanus, asteroid 2784 Domeyko, the Cordillera Domeyko mountain range in the Andes, the Chilean town of Domeyko. A bronze bust of Domeyko stands in the Casa Central of Santiago's University of Chile, of which Domeyko was long-time rector.

In 1992, a plaque in Spanish and Polish was placed on a building at Krakowskie Przedmieście 64, in Warsaw, commemorating the "distinguished son of the Polish nation and eminent citizen of Chile." On the 200th anniversary of his birth, UNESCO declared 2002 to be "Ignacy Domeyko Year." Several commemorative events were held in Chile under the auspices of Polish President Aleksander Kwaśniewski and Chilean President Ricardo Lagos. In 2002, Poland and Chile jointly issued a postage stamp commemorating the 200th anniversary of Domeyko's birth. In 2002, a 200th-birthday plaque honoring him was placed in the entry gate to Uniate Basilian monastery in Vilnius, where he and Adam Mickiewicz were held in 1823–24 during the investigation and trials of the Philomaths. In 2015 a Belarusian climber Pavel Gorbunov placed a memorial plate on the top of Cerro Kimal in Cordillera Domeyko.

The Taipei World Trade Center was inagurated in January 1986 by Taiwan's foremost trade promotion organization, the Taiwan External Trade Development Council, to provide a single, modern venue that would combine exhibition space, conference facilities and hotel accommodation for international business. TWTC combines every possible service that brings together a vast consulting service on trade-related issues, trading partners and markets; this four-in-one complex, located in the city's Xinyi District, is designed to accommodate the needs of the international business community, why there is not just one, but four structures at the TWTC. The Exhibition Hall, International Convention Center, International Trade Building and Grand Hyatt Taipei, all comprise one integrated business complex; the current Taipei World Trade Center only saw completion in 1985 following many drawbacks in construction and development. However, the history of the Taiwan External Trade Development Council began on 1 July 1970, where in an effort by the Republic of China Government to further develop international trade activities following accelerated economic growth in the 1970s.

TAITRA did not have a specialized exhibition hall to accommodate the exhibitions of export goods. As a result of the lack of facilities, in March 1974, the Taipei Grand Hotel was chosen for the first Taipei Trade Shows - "Taiwan Export Clothings Exhibition". Subsequently, the necessity of a new exhibition hall allowed for the establishment of the TAITRA exhibition hall set up at Taipei Songshan Airport, yet shortly afterwards due to Taiwan's rapid economic growth as one of the Four Asian Tigers, TAITRA again found itself having to facilitate larger scale exhibitions. On 31 December 1985, the Taipei World Trade Center had its inaugural exhibition for IT Month, which coincided with the opening of the Exhibition Hall. Following suit, the International Tourist Hotel, the International Trade Building and International Convention Center were opened for use.

Popularly, Taipei Trade Shows and other larger exhibitions are held here. 2nd floor: Also known as "Area H", has an aerial bridge that connects to Taipei 101, floor area of 4789 square meters, accommodates 250 standard sized exhibition booths. Exhibitions in this area range from small to mid-sized local expositions or education related expositions. Located on the 2nd floor, divided into three rooms functions as meeting or board room for exhibition organizers, the 3rd and 4th rooms can be connected accordingly to accommodate varying delegations. Open for business during weekdays, or on holidays when there is an exhibition. Book collection comprises sales trading-related items; when Taipei Trade Shows are going on at the time, it provides exhibitor directory lists. Catering to different needs, the 2nd to 6th floors are set as an "Export Market", with the 7th floor as the "Import Market".
