Jutland

Jutland, anciently known as the Cimbric or Cimbrian Peninsula, is a peninsula of Northern Europe that forms the continental portion of Denmark and part of northern Germany. The names are derived from the Cimbri, respectively; as with the rest of Denmark, Jutland's terrain is flat, with a elevated ridge down the central parts and hilly terrains in the east. West Jutland is characterised by open lands, heaths and peat bogs, while East Jutland is more fertile with lakes and lush forests. Southwest Jutland is characterised by the Wadden Sea, a large unique international coastal region stretching through Denmark and the Netherlands. Jutland is a peninsula bounded by the North Sea to the west, the Skagerrak to the north, the Kattegat and Baltic Sea to the east, Germany to the south. Geographically and Jutland comprises the regions of South Jutland, West Jutland, East Jutland and North Jutland. Since the mid-20th century, it has become common to designate an area called Central Jutland, but its definition varies.

There are several historical subdivisions and regional names, some are encountered today. They include Nørrejyllland, Sydjylland, Nordvestjylland and others. Politically, Jutland comprises the three contemporary Danish Administrative Regions of North Jutland Region, Central Denmark Region and the Region of Southern Denmark, along with portions of the German state of Schleswig-Holstein; the northernmost part of Jutland is separated from the mainland by the Limfjord, a narrow stretch of water bisecting the peninsula from coast to coast. The Limfjord was a long brackish water inlet, but a breaching North Sea flood in 1825 created a coast to coast connection; this area is called the North Jutlandic Island, Vendsyssel-Thy or Jutland north of the Limfjord. The islands of Læsø, Anholt and Samsø in Kattegat and Als at the rim of the Baltic Sea are administratively and tied to Jutland, although the latter two are regarded as traditional districts of their own. Inhabitants of Als, known as Alsinger, would agree to be South Jutlanders, but not Jutlanders.

The Danish Wadden Sea Islands and the German North Frisian Islands stretch along the southwest coast of Jutland in the German Bight. The largest cities in the Danish section of Jutland are as follows: Aarhus Aalborg Esbjerg Randers Kolding Horsens Vejle Herning Silkeborg FredericiaAarhus, Billund, Kolding, Vejle and Haderslev, along with a number of smaller towns, make up the suggested East Jutland metropolitan area, more densely populated than the rest of Jutland, although far from forming one consistent city. Administratively, Danish Jutland comprises three of Denmark's five regions, namely Nordjylland and the western half of Southern Denmark, which includes Funen; the five administrative regions came into effect on 1 January 2007, following a structural reform. The southern third of the peninsula is made up of the German Bundesland of Schleswig-Holstein; the German parts are not seen as Jutland proper, but described more abstract as part of the Jutlandic Peninsula, Cimbrian Peninsula or Jutland-Schleswig-Holstein.

Schleswig-Holstein has two historical parts: the former duchies of Schleswig and Holstein, both of which have passed back and forth between Danish and German rulers. The last adjustment of the Danish–German border followed the Schleswig Plebiscites in 1920 and resulted in Denmark regaining Northern Schleswig; the historic southern border of Jutland was the river Eider, which forms the border between the former duchies of Schleswig and Holstein, as well as the border between the Danish and German realms from c. 850 to 1864. Although most of Schleswig-Holstein is geographically part of the peninsula, most German residents there would not identify themselves with Jutland or as Jutlanders, but rather with Schleswig-Holstein; the medieval law Code of Jutland applied to Schleswig until 1900, when it was replaced by the Prussian Civil Code. Some used clauses of the Jutlandic Code still apply north of the Eider; the largest cities in the German area of the Jutland Peninsula are as follows: Hamburg Kiel Lübeck Flensburg.

Geologically, the Mid Jutland Region and the North Jutland Region as well as the Capital Region of Denmark are located in the north of Denmark, rising because of post-glacial rebound. Jutland has been one of the three lands of Denmark, the other two being Scania and Zealand. Before that, according to Ptolemy, Jutland or the Cimbric Chersonese was the home of Teutons and Charudes. Many Angles and Jutes migrated from Continental Europe to Great Britain starting in c. 450 AD. The Angles themselves gave their name to the new emerging kingdoms called England. Saxons and Frisii migrated to the region in the early part of the Christian era. To protect themselves from invasion by the Christian Frankish emperors, beginning in the 5th century, the pagan Danes initiated the Danevirke, a defensive wall stretching from present day Schleswig and inland half-way across the Jutland peninsula; the paga

Fahrenwalde

Fahrenwalde is a municipality in the district Vorpommern-Greifswald in the east of the German federal state Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. It is administrated by the Amt Uecker-Randow-Tal, based in Pasewalk; the municipality includes the three villages of Bröllin and Karlsruh. The municipality is located near the border to the federal state of Brandenburg and is on a plateau, sloping downward in a northeast direction to the Randowbruch; the surrounding area between the city of Pasewalk and small uckermarkian city of Brüssow is hilly. Between the core village Fahrenwalde and the villages Bröllin and Friedrichshof there are a number of small lakes. Up to 1945 Fahrenwalde belonged to the Prussian borough of Prenzlau, which became a part of Brandenburg. On 25 July 1952 Fahrenwalde was reassigned to the borough of Pasewalk in the district of Neubrandenburg. Old farm houses and their associated buildings make up the scenery of the village Fahrenwalde. In the 19th century the village of Bröllin had one of the most technological advanced farming complexes in the region.

Today this estate is called Schloss Bröllin and is home to an international production centre for performing arts. The motorway connection Pasewalk-Ost for the Ostseeautobahn A20 is 9 km away. A train connection is available at a 10 km distance at Pasewalk train station. On 27 May 1875 the uckermarkian poet Max Lindow was born in the old school house, he is composer of the "Uckermarklied", a song about the region, in his stories he referred to his youth in Fahrenwalde.

Darragh MacAnthony is an Irish football chairman and entrepreneur. The son of Austin MacAnthony, a nightclub owner, MacAnthony was educated at St Mary's College, Dublin, he moved to Spain with his family as a 15-year-old. He is a fan of Liverpool F. C. Since September 2006 MacAnthony has been chairman of Peterborough United F. C. Outgoing chairman Barry Fry cited a Sky One documentary, Big Ron Manager, as a factor in attracting investment from MacAnthony. Obliged to give the first refusal to a third party in the event of a sale, Fry retained 99.8% ownership of the club. However, MacAnthony gained power of attorney for the club's affairs. MacAnthony took over as chairman at Peterborough at the age of 30, making him the youngest chairman in the Football League; as a sign of his ambition, a printed note from MacAnthony was added to Peterborough United's match programme in August 2007. In it, he promised fans promotion from League Two to the Championship in two seasons, duly delivered, though the club were subsequently relegated to League One.

MacAnthony became owner of the club in August 2007, buying the club for a nominal £1 after taking on the club's debts. In January 2007, manager Keith Alexander was sacked and replaced by Darren Ferguson, at the time untried as a manager. Ferguson delivered big returns, delivering back-to-back promotions in his first two full seasons. Ferguson left Peterborough, by mutual consent, on 9 November 2009 after a disappointing start to the 2009–10 season. Peterborough were relegated in 2010. In the 2010–11 season MacAnthony reappointed Darren Ferguson, Peterborough United were once again promoted to the second tier; the club spent two seasons in the Championship after winning promotion. On 4 May 2013, Peterborough were relegated to League One after losing to Crystal Palace 3–2 on the final match of the Championship season. Peterborough's total of 54 points during the 2012–13 season is the highest by a relegated team in Championship history. MacAnthony left after three months, he formed the property group Macanthony Realty International in 2000, selling overseas holiday homes to Irish and British customers.

From a head office in Marbella, the company offered properties in countries including the Bahamas, Bulgaria and the Dominican Republic, with MacAnthony stating in 2005 that he gave the number of his personal mobile telephone to clients. In 2006, MacAnthony funded a satellite TV channel, Overseas Property TV, presented by his younger sister; the Sunday Times Rich List estimated his wealth at £150 million in 2007, £68 million in 2008. MacAnthony provided £250,000 for the Helping Hands Group at the time it opened, a private company which supports disabled people in the Peterborough Area. MacAnthony appeared in court in April 2012, charged with'Theft and Swindle' relating to furniture packs purchased by clients of MRI Overseas Property which the clients claimed were never delivered. MacAnthony has denied the claims but the solicitor representing the clients, Antonio Flores, claims he has further clients wishing to take action against MacAnthony once the first case is completed. In September 2011 a former employee was awarded €157,767.31, plus interest and legal fees by a Spanish Court, for the non-payment of commission by MacAnthony Realty International.

MacAnthony published an autobiography, From Hobby To Obsession in 2012
