Driving today? Here are the places there will be garda checkpoints as part of ‘Slow Down’ campaign

This article was originally published on Roosh V. More tattoos Young men and women are disfiguring themselves with the typical sort of tattoo scribbles that is already epidemic in America. Polish people are deciding to pursue their individualist side by permanently drawing obnoxious things on their body instead of actually achieving something worthwhile that makes them superior to the common man. More ear gauges Tattoos are tame compared to the sudden, prevalent, and frankly shocking use of ear gauges, whereby people irreversibly stretch and mutilate their ear lobes to appear cool. Since tattoos and ear gauges go hand in hand, you can only imagine the freakshows Poland now has on display. Just last month for the first time in Eastern Europe ever I saw two men passionately kissing in front of a pizza shop. Both men and women will experiment with it, as if catching a sort of virus, and step back from more traditional and humanizing features of Polish culture that have historically been centered around religion.

Here are some of the locations gardai will be targeting on National Slow Down Day

Way Victor (formerly Way Victoria), located near Roundwood, County Wicklow, Ireland, is a remarkable private meditation garden for its black granite sculptures. The 9-hectare property includes a number of small lakes and wooded areas. A plaque at the entrance indicates that the park is dedicated to the cryptographer Alan Turing.

Their commitment is remarkable. The film seeks to highlight this to dramatic effect as it follows fictional schoolgirl girl Cassie Cowan, nicknamed Cow. She and her friends are involved in a horrific car crash after she loses concentration behind the wheel while texting. A four-minute taster clip of the film, generally known as COW, has been seen by millions of viewers on YouTube, and has gained global attention.

Recognising that many people are killed or seriously injured on our roads, the show aims to positively influence those drivers who are about to start out on what will hopefully be a long and safe motoring career. Engrossed in her texting, she is involved first in one crash before her car is then broadsided by another. You have seen far worse in movies and with far less good intent.

But if it even makes one person think twice, or even once, about the consequences, then any amount of graphic content is to be applauded. There is surely nothing gratuitous about trying to save a life. When visibility is reduced, an accident involving one vehicle can quickly involve many others, especially if they are driving too fast and too close to one another. Previous multiple-vehicle pile-ups demonstrate that many drivers do not adjust their driving sufficiently for the conditions.

Fog is the most potentially dangerous of all weather conditions. Freezing fog – when poor visibility is compounded by the road surface being slippery – is a driver’s worst nightmare.

Philip Walsh, baptized in Dublin in , built several men-of-war for the French service. James Walsh was a captain in the French navy, and it was on board his ship that James II fled from Kinsale to France in , after the former King’s unsuccesful bid to reclaim the throne of England. This page tells some of that story. The French government was apprised of Prince Charles’s intentions, and though the French ministers were not disposed openly to sanction an enterprise which they were not at the time in a condition to support, they secretly favoured a design, which, whatever might be its result, would operate as a diversion in favour of France.

Accordingly, Lord Clare, afterwards Marshal Thomond , then a lieutenant-general in the French service, was authorised to open a negotiation with two merchants of Irish extraction, named Rutledge and Walsh, who had made some money by trading to the West Indies. Lord Clare having introduced Prince Charles to Ruttledge and Walsh, explained the prince’s design, and proposed that they should lend him their ships. When informed that everything was in readiness for his departure, Charles went to Nantes, near the mouth of the Loire, in disguise, and having descended the Loire in a fishing boat on the 20th of June, O.

The expedition sailed from Belleisle on the 5th of July with a fair wind, which continued favourable till the 8th, when a dead calm ensued.

It was a usual feature and often the principle element of early prison uniforms. The visual aspect of bare feet is therefore used to contrast the conventional appearance as footwear is regarded an obligatory clothing feature in urbanized cultures. Besides the indicatory aspect going in bare feet restricts the freedom of action in many situations.

A barefooted person is therefore disadvantaged opposite a shod person in many practical respects.

Getting back to basics In December the TfL Board, looking ahead, asked for an update on the value for money derived from the bus contracts process and how rising demand can be accommodated within a constrained funding scenario from the Finance and Policy Committee.
