Harlow

Harlow is a town and local government district in the west of Essex, England. A new town, situated on the border with Hertfordshire and London, Harlow occupies a large area of land on the south bank of the upper Stort Valley, made navigable through other towns and features a canal section near its watermill. Old Harlow is a village-size suburb founded by the early medieval age and most of its high street buildings are early Victorian and residential protected by one of the Conservation Areas in the district. In Old Harlow is a field named Harlowbury, a de-settled monastic area which has the remains of a chapel, a scheduled ancient monument; the M11 motorway passes through the east of the district to the east of the town. Harlow has its own leisure economy, it is an outer part of the London commuter belt and employment centre of the M11 corridor which includes Cambridge and London Stansted to the north. At the time of the 2011 Census, Harlow's population was recorded at 81,944 and its district had the third-highest proportion of social housing in England, 26.9%, a legacy of the 1947 commitment to re-house blitzed London families after World War II and provide a percentage of homes for other needy families who cannot afford market rents.

There is some dispute as to. One theory is that it derives from the Anglo-Saxon words'here' and'hlaw', meaning "army hill" to be identified with Mulberry Hill, used as the moot or meeting place for the district; the other theory is that it derives from the words'here' and'hearg', meaning "temple hill/mound" to be identified with an Iron Age burial mound a Roman temple site on River Way. The earliest deposits are of a Mesolithic hunting camp excavated by Davey in Northbrooks in the 1970s followed by the large and unexcavated deposits of Neolithic flint beside Gilden Way; these deposits are known because of the large numbers of surface-bound, worked flint. Substantial amounts of worked flint suggest an organised working of flint in the area. Large amounts of debitage litter the area and tools found include axeheads, blades and other boring tools and multipurpose flints such as scrapers. An organised field walk in the late 1990s by Bartlett indicates that most of the area, some 80 hectares, produced worked flint from the Neolithic to the Bronze Age with a smattering of Mesolithic.

This indicates organised industry existed from 5000 BC to 2000 BC. The deposits are so large and dispersed that any major archaeological work in the area will have to take this into consideration before any ground work is started. Harlow was in Roman times the site of a small town with a substantial stone built temple; the entry in the Norman Domesday Book reads: Herlaua: St Edmunds Abbey before and after 1066. Mill, 7 beehives, 8 cobs, 43 cattle, 3 foals; the mill is now restaurant. The original village, mentioned in the Domesday Book, developed as a typical rural community around what is now known as Old Harlow, with many of its buildings still standing; this includes for instance the Grade II listed St Mary's Church in Churchgate Street. Its former Chapel is in a ruinous state in a field, once the Harlowbury Abbey part of Old Harlow, is Grade I listed and is a scheduled ancient monument. Kingsmoor House on Paringdon Road is dates from the 18th century, it was built as a gentleman's residence and owned by local families including the Risden and Todhunter families.

It was used as a private school and council offices before falling derelict. It has since been converted into residential apartments; the original Harlow New Town was built after World War II to ease overcrowding in London and the surrounding areas due to the devastation caused by the bombing during the Blitz. Harlow was, along with places such as Basildon and Hemel Hempstead a result of the New Towns Act of 1946, with the master plan for Harlow drawn up in 1947 by Sir Frederick Gibberd; the town was designed to respect the existing landscape. A number of landscape wedges - which became known as Green Wedges - were designed to cut through the town and separate the neighbourhoods of the town; the development incorporated the market town of Harlow, now a neighbourhood known as Old Harlow, the villages of Great Parndon, Tye Green, Potter Street, Churchgate Street, Little Parndon, Netteswell. Each of the town's neighbourhoods is self-supporting with its own shopping precincts, community facilities and pubs.

Gibberd invited many of the country's leading post-war architects to design buildings in the town, including Philip Powell and Hidalgo Moya, Leonard Manasseh, Michael Neylan, E C P Monson, Gerard Goalen, Maxwell Fry, Jane Drew, Graham Dawbarn, H. T. Cadbury-Brown and William Crabtree. Harlow has one of the most extensive cycle track networks in the country, connecting all areas of the town to the town centre and industrial areas; the cycle network is composed of the original old town roads. The town's authorities built Britain's first pedestrian precinct, first modern-style residential tower block, The Lawn, constructed in 1951. Gibberd's tromp-l'oeil terrace in Orchard Croft and Dawbarn's maisonette blocks at Pennymead are notable, as is Michael Neylan's pioneering development at Bishopsfield; the first neighbourhood, Mark Hall, is a conservation area. From 1894 to 1955 the Harlow parish formed part of the Epping Rural District of Essex. From 1955 to 1974, Ha

María Rosa, búscame una esposa

María Rosa, búscame una esposa is a Peruvian telenovela created by Luis Felipe Salamanca and Dago García, co-produced by Venevisión International and Iguana Producciones. The series was distributed internationally by Venevisión International. Gianella Neyra and Marcelo Cezán starred as the protagonists with Chiquinquirá Delgado as the antagonist. Of all the assignments given to Maria Rosa Garcia by her boss in the many years they have worked together, the most difficult one comes when he tells her: "Maria Rosa, find me a wife". A consummate bachelor with little time or energy to invest in dating, Rafael Vargas decides that it is time to get married before anyone in his social circle starts doubting his masculinity, and what better way to find the perfect candidate than to assign the task to his super-efficient secretary? The problem is that Maria Rosa has been hopelessly in love with Rafael since the day she began working at his company; the instant attraction soon developed into a profound, everlasting love that has become the core of her existence - although she has never made her feelings known.

To the successful businessman she so adores, Maria Rosa is the most capable and loyal of employees, but nothing more. He has never seen her as a woman, she has resigned herself to this in silence just so she can be near him, and so she has spent the best years of her life doing a job that has proven indispensable for the company but has given her no personal rewards. Her only consolation has been Rafael’s total lack of interest in establishing a serious relationship with anyone; that is. After recovering from the initial blow, Maria Rosa decides that the best way to handle this is to pretend that she is conducting an efficient search through serious matchmaking services, when in fact she is sabotaging the process by subjecting the candidates to tests so unreasonable that no one could pass; this way she makes sure that Rafael never finds the ideal bride, at the same time musters enough courage to change her strategy, become more attractive and try to win his love once and for all. But Maria Rosa’s drastic change only confuses Rafael, who thinks his secretary is acting "weird" because she works too hard.

His solution is to send her abroad on a paid vacation. Taking that trip turns out to be a terrible mistake for Maria Rosa, as upon her return she finds that a cunning, ruthlessly ambitious woman has not only occupied her place in the company, but stolen Rafael’s unconquerable heart, taking him to the altar transformed into a love-blind puppet; this is the beginning of a long journey of misfortune for Rafael, orchestrated by the wicked Eva. And only one woman will be able to save him from this cruel fate: the loyal and loving Maria Rosa.
