An ice age is a period of long-term reduction in the temperature of Earths surface and atmosphere, resulting in the presence or expansion of continental and polar ice sheets and alpine glaciers. Within a long-term ice age, individual pulses of cold climate are termed glacial periods, in the terminology of glaciology, ice age implies the presence of extensive ice sheets in both northern and southern hemispheres. In 1742 Pierre Martel, an engineer and geographer living in Geneva, two years he published an account of his journey. He reported that the inhabitants of that valley attributed the dispersal of erratic boulders to the glaciers, similar explanations were reported from other regions of the Alps. In 1815 the carpenter and chamois hunter Jean-Pierre Perraudin explained erratic boulders in the Val de Bagnes in the Swiss canton of Valais as being due to glaciers previously extending further. An unknown woodcutter from Meiringen in the Bernese Oberland advocated a similar idea in a discussion with the Swiss-German geologist Jean de Charpentier in 1834, comparable explanations are known from the Val de Ferret in the Valais and the Seeland in western Switzerland and in Goethes scientific work.
Such explanations could be found in parts of the world. When the Bavarian naturalist Ernst von Bibra visited the Chilean Andes in 1849–1850, European scholars had begun to wonder what had caused the dispersal of erratic material. From the middle of the 18th century, some discussed ice as a means of transport, the Swedish mining expert Daniel Tilas was, in 1742, the first person to suggest drifting sea ice in order to explain the presence of erratic boulders in the Scandinavian and Baltic regions. In 1795, the Scottish philosopher and gentleman naturalist, James Hutton, two decades later, in 1818, the Swedish botanist Göran Wahlenberg published his theory of a glaciation of the Scandinavian peninsula. He regarded glaciation as a regional phenomenon, only a few years later, the Danish-Norwegian geologist Jens Esmark argued a sequence of worldwide ice ages. In a paper published in 1824, Esmark proposed changes in climate as the cause of those glaciations and he attempted to show that they originated from changes in Earths orbit.
During the following years, Esmarks ideas were discussed and taken over in parts by Swedish, Scottish, at the University of Edinburgh Robert Jameson seemed to be relatively open to Esmarks ideas, as reviewed by Norwegian professor of glaciology Bjørn G. Andersen. Jamesons remarks about ancient glaciers in Scotland were most probably prompted by Esmark, in Germany, Albrecht Reinhard Bernhardi, a geologist and professor of forestry at an academy in Dreissigacker, since incorporated in the southern Thuringian city of Meiningen, adopted Esmarks theory. In a paper published in 1832, Bernhardi speculated about former polar ice caps reaching as far as the zones of the globe. When he read his paper before the Schweizerische Naturforschende Gesellschaft, most scientists remained sceptical, Venetz convinced his friend Jean de Charpentier. De Charpentier transformed Venetzs idea into a theory with a limited to the Alps. In fact, both men shared the same volcanistic, or in de Charpentiers case rather plutonistic assumptions, about the Earths history, in 1834, de Charpentier presented his paper before the Schweizerische Naturforschende Gesellschaft
KVINFO is an abbreviation of the Danish words køn, viden and forskning, meaning gender, knowledge and research. KVINFOs core resource is a library of more than 20,000 books and political publications dealing with equal opportunities and womens issues. This library may be seen as an example of a broader, for example, it edits a web magazine, an online Biographical Encyclopedia of Danish Women, a database of women professionals, web stories on key periods in the history of Danish women. KVINFO is the only library in Denmark. Its history goes back to 1964 when the founder Nynne Koch and she was allocated 15 minutes a day in which to register incoming books on womens issues in a card catalogue. Such initiative allowed KVINFO to develop a classification and subject indexing system invented by Koch. By 1982, KVINFO was established as an experiment funded by the Danish Ministry of Culture. Koch and her staff of volunteers moved to a new venue, in 1987 the center became a self-governing institution. Elisabeth Møller Jensen was the director of KVINFO from 1990 to 2014, nina Groes took over the position as director 1 February 2014.
Furthermore, the center has implemented information technology on all levels, KVINFOs magazine, first paper edition appeared in 1982 and for the next ten years was the only Danish womens studies journal. In 1998 it became a web magazine in order to new groups of readers. Forums main purpose is to increase the visibility of Danish women and of gender issues and to create links and contact to other women and it is mainly published in Danish. This material is available to the public free of charge on the Internet. In 1995, KVINFO set up a database of women experts in Denmark called Women Online, KVINFO launched this website in November 2001 and the idea behind it is to tell the story of Danish womens road to equal opportunities from 1850 to 1920. KVINFO is involved in other projects. In 2001 the Danish womens movement in general, and KVINFO in particular, were criticized for letting down immigrant women, by 2003 a mentor network was set up for the benefit of refugee and immigrant women living in Denmark.
The idea was to match KVINFOs rich networks of strong, well educated women with refugee and it has been estimated that more than 50 percent of all job openings in Denmark are filled via personal networks. Networks are essential to gain a foothold in Danish society, Women immigrants are matched with Danish mentors based on the educational background and personal wishes
Capital Region of Denmark

In Danish the name is Region Hovedstaden, which is one of five regions in Denmark, before 2007, a Danish Capital Region, did exist, but it did not cover exactly the same area and did not have the same legal function. The primary function of Capital Region of Denmark, as all the regions of Denmark, is to own. Note that the region is not a district in the US or Australian meaning of the term.

Ruth Smith (artist)
Ruth Smith Nielsen was a Faroese artist. She lived for years in Denmark, where she was educated as a painter first on the Bizzie Højer Art School. Ruth Smith liked to swim in the sea, but one day she drowned while swimming in Vágsfjørður, Ruth Smith dealt with colours more sensitively than many of her contemporaries. She caught the Faroese light in her pictures, and the colours vibrate under brush lines, inspired by Cézanne, her landscapes have Impressionist influences. Nevertheless, her work is considered representative of realism and her two self-portraits of 1955 and 1956 are ranked among the most important paintings of the Faroes and are in the Faroe Islands Art Museum. There is an art museum in Vágur in honour of Ruth Smith, the museum is called Ruth Smith Savnið, which means Ruth Smith Art Museum. The museum is located in the Old School on Vágsvegur 101, the museum has paintings and drawing by the artist. One of the attractions is a self-portrait, which she painted in 1941. It is the same self-portrait which was used as the cover of a book about the artist Ruth Smith, dagmar Warming, Ruth Smith, Lív og verk.
