Machynlleth, sometimes referred to colloquially as Mach, is a market town and electoral ward in Powys and within the historic boundaries of Montgomeryshire. It is in the Dyfi Valley at the intersection of the A489 roads. At the 2001 Census it had a population of 2,147, rising to 2,235 in 2011. Machynlleth was the seat of Owain Glyndŵr's Welsh Parliament in 1404, as such claims to be the "ancient capital of Wales". However, it has never held any official recognition as a capital, it was unsuccessful. It is twinned with Michigan. Machynlleth hosted the National Eisteddfod in 1937 and 1981. There is a long history of human activity in the Machynlleth area. In the late-1990s, radiocarbon dating showed that copper mining was taking place in the Early Bronze Age, within a mile of the town centre. There are legends of a once fertile plain, the Cantre'r Gwaelod, now lost beneath the waves of Cardigan Bay; the Romans settled in the area. One of the earliest written references to Machynlleth is the Royal charter granted in 1291 by Edward I to Owen de la Pole, Lord of Powys.

This gave him the right to hold "a market at Machynlleth every Wednesday for and two fairs every year". The Wednesday market is still a popular day in Machynlleth 700 years later; the Royal House, which stands on the corner of the Garsiwn, is another of the mediaeval houses that can still be seen today. According to local tradition, Dafydd Gam, a Welsh ally of the English kings, was imprisoned here from 1404 to 1412 for attempting to assassinate Owain Glyndŵr. After his release by Glyndŵr, ransomed Gam fought alongside Henry V at the Battle of Agincourt and is named amongst the dead in Shakespeare's Henry V; the name Royal House undoubtedly refers to the tradition that Charles I stayed at the house in 1643. The weekly market and biannual fair thrived, in 1613 drew complaints from other towns whose trading in cloth was being affected. A document dated 1632 shows that animals for sale came from all over Merionethshire, Cardiganshire and Denbighshire, prospective buyers came from Flintshire, Brecknockshire and Shropshire, in addition to the above.

The Dyfi Bridge was first mentioned in 1533, by Geoffrey Hughes, "Citizen and Merchant taylour of London" who left £6 13/4 "towards making of a bridge at the toune of Mathanlleth". By 1601 "Dovey bridge in the Hundred of Mochunleth" was reported to be insufficient, the current one was built in 1805 for £250. Fenton describes it in 1809 as "A noble erection of five large arches; the piers are narrow and over each cut-water is a pilaster, a common feature of the 18th century". Rowland Pugh was the Lord of Meirionedd, lived at Mathafarn about two miles east of Machynlleth. Pugh supported the Royalist side in the English Civil War. On 2 November 1644, Sir Thomas Myddleton of Chirk Castle was marching on Machynlleth with a force of the Parliamentarian army, when he was ambushed by a force organised by Pugh. In retaliation for the attack, Myddleton burned down Mathafarn on 29 November 1644, along with a number of houses in Machynlleth. Laura Ashley's first shop was opened in Machynlleth; the disappearance of April Jones in October 2012 received a large amount of coverage in the UK media.

Mary Cornelia, the daughter of local landowner Sir John Edwards married Viscount Seaham, the second son of the third Marquess of Londonderry, in 1846 and they set up home in Plas Machynlleth. He became Earl Vane on the death of his father and the fifth Marquess on the death of his half-brother. To celebrate the 21st birthday of their eldest son, Viscount Castlereagh, the townspeople subscribed to the erection of the clock tower, which has become known as the symbol of Machynlleth; the tower, which stands on the site of the old town hall, is the first thing many visitors will notice. The foundation stone was laid on 15 July 1874 amid great festivities. Another son, Lord Herbert Vane-Tempest, was the last member of the family to live at the Plas and was killed in the Abermule train collision on the Cambrian Railways, of which he was a director; the house was given to the townspeople in December 1948 under the stewardship of the Machynlleth Urban District Council. Various local government re-organisations saw responsibility for the Plas pass first to Montgomeryshire District Council, who in 1995 converted it into the Celtica Visitor Centre.

Celtica interpreted the history and culture of the Celts with a walk-through audio-visual exhibition housed in a purpose-built addition to the house. The £3 million attraction was part-funded by the European Union; the centre had a high-profile in the Welsh media, with opera singer Bryn Terfel opening the attraction in October 1995. Powys County Council took over Celtica and the house when it was formed as a unitary authority in 1997; the centre was successful in attracting tourist, school groups and conferences for a number of years, however initial visitor number predictions proved to be too ambitious and the council was unwilling to prolong its subsidy and with little scope for alternative investment Celtica closed in March 2006, the house stood empty while Powys County Council sought to relinquish responsibility for it in line with their policy of selling many of their publicly owned buildings. At this point, Machynlleth Town Council, realising that the town was in danger of losing the Plas

Airbus A380

The Airbus A380 is the world's largest passenger airliner, a wide-body aircraft manufactured by Airbus. Airbus studies started in 1988 and the project was announced in 1990 to challenge the dominance of the Boeing 747 in the long haul market; the A3XX project was presented in 1994. The first prototype was unveiled in Toulouse on 18 January 2005, with its first flight on 27 April 2005. Difficulties in electrical wiring caused a two-year delay and the development cost ballooned to €18 billion, it obtained its EASA and FAA type certificates on 12 December 2006. It entered service on 25 October. Production peaked at 30 per year in 2012 and 2014. However, Airbus concedes. On 14 February 2019, after Emirates reduced its last orders in favour of the A350 and the A330neo, Airbus announced that A380 production would end by 2021; the full-length double-deck aircraft has a typical seating capacity of 525, though it is certified for up to 853 passengers. It is powered by four Engine Alliance GP7200 or Rolls-Royce Trent 900 turbofans providing a range of 8,000 nmi.

As of December 2019, Airbus has delivered 242 aircraft. In mid-1988, Airbus engineers led by Jean Roeder began work in secret on the development of an ultra-high-capacity airliner, both to complete its own range of products and to break the dominance that Boeing had enjoyed in this market segment since the early 1970s with its 747. McDonnell Douglas unsuccessfully offered its double-deck MD-12 concept for sale. Lockheed was exploring the possibility for a Very Large Subsonic Transport. Roeder was given approval for further evaluations of the UHCA after a formal presentation to the President and CEO in June 1990; the megaproject was announced at the 1990 Farnborough Airshow, with the stated goal of 15% lower operating costs than the 747-400. Airbus organised four teams of designers, one from each of its partners to propose new technologies for its future aircraft designs; the designs were presented in 1992 and the most competitive designs were used. In January 1993, Boeing and several companies in the Airbus consortium started a joint feasibility study of a Very Large Commercial Transport, aiming to form a partnership to share the limited market.

In June 1994, Airbus announced its plan to develop its own large airliner, designated as A3XX. Airbus considered several designs, including an unusual side-by-side combination of two fuselages from its A340, the largest Airbus jet at the time; the A3XX was pitted against the VLCT study and Boeing's own New Large Aircraft successor to the 747. In July 1995, the joint study with Boeing was abandoned, as Boeing's interest had declined due to analysis that such a product was unlikely to cover the projected $15 billion development cost. Despite the fact that only two airlines had expressed public interest in purchasing such a plane, Airbus was pursuing its own large-plane project. Analysts suggested that Boeing would instead pursue stretching its 747 design, that air travel was moving away from the hub-and-spoke system that consolidated traffic into large planes, toward more non-stop routes that could be served by smaller planes. From 1997 to 2000, as the 1997 Asian financial crisis darkened the market outlook, Airbus refined its design, targeting a 15–20% reduction in operating costs over the existing Boeing 747-400.

The A3XX design converged on a double-decker layout that provided more passenger volume than a traditional single-deck design. Airbus did so in line with traditional hub-and-spoke theory, as opposed to the point-to-point theory with the Boeing 777, after conducting an extensive market analysis with over 200 focus groups. Although early marketing of the huge cross-section touted the possibility of duty-free shops, restaurant-like dining, gyms and beauty parlours on board, the realities of airline economics have kept such dreams grounded. On 19 December 2000, the supervisory board of newly restructured Airbus voted to launch an €9.5 billion project to build the A3XX, re-designated as the A380, with 50 firm orders from six launch customers. The A380 designation was a break from previous Airbus families, which had progressed sequentially from A300 to A340, it was chosen because the number 8 resembles the double-deck cross section, is a lucky number in some Asian countries where the aircraft was being marketed.

The aircraft configuration was finalised in early 2001, manufacturing of the first A380 wing-box component started on 23 January 2002. The development cost of the A380 had grown to € 11 -- 14 billion. In 2000, the projected development cost was €9.5 billion. In 2004 Airbus estimated that €1.5 billion would need to be added, totalling the developmental costs to €10.3 billion. In 2006, Airbus stopped publishing its reported cost after reaching costs of €10.2 billion and it provisioned another €4.9 billion, after the difficulties in electric cabling and two years delay for an estimated total of €18 billion. In 2014, the aircraft was estimated to have cost $25bn to develop. In 2015, Airbus said development costs were €15 billion, though analysts believe the figure is to be at least €5bn more for a €20 Bn total. In 2016, The A380 development costs were estimated at $25 billion for 15 years, $25–30 billion, or €25 billion. To start the programme in 2000, the go

Louis Logic

Louis Dorley, better known as Louis Logic, is a Brooklyn, New York-based underground hip-hop emcee. He has released three full-length studio albums as a solo artist and one album as The Odd Couple with Jay Love, is a former member of the Demigodz, appearing on a number of tracks on the Godz Must Be Crazy EP. In 2006, he made his arrangement with longtime producer J. J. Brown official, their last album together was released under the artist name "louis logic & J. J. Brown." He first became interested in hip-hop at the age of eleven when he was exposed to U. T. F. O.'s hit "Roxanne, Roxanne". By his own admission, lyrical talent did not come to him, he has cited Vinnie Paz of Jedi Mind Tricks for the name which has become Logic's moniker,'The Drunken Dragon.' In 2002, the Demigodz The Godz Must Be Crazy EP was released. Louis Logic's solo career took off in 2003 with the release of Sin-A-Matic, met with critical acclaim and widespread underground success. In 2004 he withdrew from the Demigodz, citing that his association with the group was overshadowing his solo career, the fact that his music was developing in a different direction from the style which made him comfortable with the Godz, who value traditional battle-style rhyming over innovation.

However, in 2005 Louis Logic made an appearance on long time Demigodz affiliate Majik Most's debut album "Molesting HipHop. The song entitled "Chicks Don't Mind" was produced by JJ Brown - Logic's primary producer and close friend. Although he released Alcohol/Ism that year as The Odd Couple with Jay Love, his departure from the Demigodz marked a retreat from collaborative work, his 2006 album with J. J. Brown, Misery Loves Comedy features no cameos at all by other rappers, although a singer was brought in for one track. Misery Loves Comedy was Logic's first release on Fatbeats Records. In September 2006, Louis and J. J. released their first music video for the single "The Great Divide." The video was directed by Jed I. Rosenberg. Louis worked on a project with Danish producers Laust Jeppesen and Rolf Hede entitled "Spork Kills", it was a total departure from his previous work, fusing 60's surf rock with hip hop, as he had expressed his displeasure with the "underground" hip-hop scene and labels. Spork Kills' first single was "Night of the Hip N Dead."

The video was directed by Donlee Brussel. It premiered on mtvU. In 2013, he revealed he was working on his first new louis logic album since 2006's Misery Loves Comedy in Copenhagen; the album was released in November 2013 on Fake Four Inc.. This project was self-produced, featuring several artists on various instruments. After many years of hip hop releases and implementing voice and piano along the way, Louis moved on to working on electronic indie - pop singer/songwriter music and broke a three-year silence with the release of a new collaborative band project with Minneapolis rapper/producer and longtime tourmate ECID called TOYFRiEND, their debut EP Foolhearty was self-released in December 2017. In late 2017, Louis revealed on Instagram that he had "been getting a lot of "thought you were dead" messages for the last 3 years" as an announcement to his new creative direction TOYFRiEND following his long period of activity under the handle Louis Logic. Soon after, Dorley updated his instagram bio to include "once upon a time, i was louis logic.

TOYFRiEND" and further updated his twitter bio to state "pka Louis Logic". Louis "Logic" continues to release music in part with his friend ECID under the new band label.
