Franklin-Gordon Wild Rivers National Park

Franklin-Gordon Wild Rivers is a national park in Tasmania, 117 km west of Hobart. It is named after the two main river systems lying within the bounds of the park - the Franklin River and the Gordon River; the Franklin-Gordon Wild Rivers National Park lies between the Central Highlands and West Coast Range of Tasmania in the heart of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area. It is bisected by the only road to pass through this area - the Lyell Highway; the genesis of the Wild Rivers National Park was in the earlier Frenchmans Cap National Park which had the Franklin River as its boundary on the northern and western borders. Frenchmans Cap is a dominant feature in the region, can be seen on the skyline from the west and north of the park; the Gordon and Franklin Rivers were the subject of one of Australia's largest conservation efforts. The Franklin Dam was part of a proposed hydro-electric power scheme, in the plans of The Hydro for some time; the enthusiastic endorsement by Robin Gray's Liberal Government would have seen the river flooded.

It became a national issue for the Tasmanian Wilderness Society, led by its director at the time, Bob Brown. Despite being given heritage status, the catchments and rivers remain at risk; the Lyell Highway winds for 56 kilometres through the heart of the Franklin-Gordon Wild Rivers National Park.

Eastern Street (Hong Kong)

Eastern Street is an early street of Hong Kong, located in the Sai Ying Pun area of Hong Kong Island. Eastern Street North is an extension of the street leading to the seafront following progressive harbour reclamations; the street is part of planned streets in the early development of Victoria City. High Street, Third Street, Second Street and First Street run east to west horizontally on a slight slope while Centre Street, Western Street and Eastern Street run north to south steeply; the street starts in the Mid-levels near Bonham Road Government Primary School below Bonham Road and runs down Connaught Road West, crossing High Street, Third Street, Second Street, First Street, Queen's Road Central and Des Voeux Road West. It descends in the shortest straight line from the mid-levels to the harbour, which explains its slope of 1:6; the steep incline has been cited as a factor in some serious traffic accidents. The extension Eastern Street North, from Connaught Road West, is a continuation of Eastern Street to the Victoria Harbour, Sun Yat Sen Memorial Park and Western Park Indoor Games Hall.

Humphrey Verdon Roe

Humphrey Verdon Roe was a British businessman, a philanthropist, aircraft manufacturer and the unacknowledged co-founder of Britain's first and most successful birth control clinic along with Marie Stopes, who became his wife. He was the father of the British philosopher Harry Stopes-Roe. Roe was from Manchester, son of Edwin Roe and Annie Verdon, younger brother of Alliot Verdon Roe. After leaving school he enlisted as an officer in the Manchester Regiment and served in the Boer War. In February 1902 he returned to Birmingham and took control of a company that manufactured webbing, Everard & Co. as his uncle who owned the firm had just died. He lifted the company back to commercial viability. In 1909 Roe invested in his brother Alliott's aeronautical inventions and a firm was registered in 1913 under the name "A. V. Roe and Company", better known as Avro. Everard's most successful product was called "Bullseye Braces", which led to the "stock joke that'Avro' biplanes were kept up by Bullseye Braces."

Roe became managing director of the company, "piloted the planes as as his brother". The company was successful and the brothers became rich, but in 1917 they had a falling out and Roe withdrew from the company. Before he met his wife, Roe had attempted to found a birth control clinic in Manchester, offering to finance St Mary's Hospital for the purpose, he had observed the effects of mothers in Manchester who had given birth to too many children and decided he could do something. The hospital declined the offer. In November 1917 Dr Binnie Dunlop, interested in birth control, introduced Roe to Marie Stopes, who had just written a book called Married Love, but couldn't get it published. Roe decided to finance the book. Roe, who had joined the Royal Flying Corps left for the front. In late March 1918 Roe injured his spine and broke an ankle when the aircraft in which he was an observer crashed after a bombing raid over an airfield in Germany. On his repatriation to London Stopes joined him on the day Married Love was published.

They were married on 16 May 1918 and with the aid of his wife his desire to open a birth control clinic was realized on 17 March 1921 at 61, Marlborough Road, North London. Stopes became Roe acted as the hardworking secretary. Together they worked tirelessly to keep the clinic running and expand their operations to other cities in Britain, their relationship failed in the mid-1930s. During World War II at the age of 61, Roe joined the Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve and for a third time did his duty for his country. In 1949 he developed kidney trouble and died on 27 July aged 71
