Tincan Trading Post

From 1909 the Orient Steam Navigation Company was contracted to pick up and deliver mail for the Cocos (Keeling) Islands as part of the UK-Australia mail service. After the P&O took a controlling interest in the Orient Line in 1917 their ships also took part in this service. Due to the lack of a suitable anchorage and the small population being served, the mail was dropped off and picked up without the ships actually stopping! Sealed barrels of mail would be taken out by island boats and floated alongside the ship as it slowed down to pick them up. Similarly the ship would throw barrels containing the incoming mail ...
destroyers were light vessels without the endurance for unattended ocean operations; typically a number of destroyers and a single destroyer tender operated together. During and after the war, larger and more powerful destroyers capable of independent operation were built, particularly as cruisers ceased to be used in the 1950s and 60s. At the dawn of the 21st Century, destroyers are the heaviest surface combatant ships in general use, with only four nations (the UK , the United States , Russia , and Peru ) operating the heavier class cruisers and none operating battleships or true battlecruisers . Modern destroyers, also known as
Subject: This soldiers perspective on the Redacted issue. « blog ...
Of the 75 or so emails I received about Redacted, only one was so well thought out I had to post it. It came from a member of our Armed Forces. We have exchanged a couple emails and I asked him if I could post this anonymously . He presented it to his superiors , who approved the posting. He is a hell of a guy. Subject: This soldiers perspective on the Redacted issue. Sir, I doubt that you will read or see this email, as I have to imagine you receive thousands of emails a day. And while I figure mine will just be lost in the flood, I happened across the story about you and Mr. O’Reilly and the controversy over the movie ... market research, surveys and trends
Kill spam, realtime scams and fraud emails: African scrap metal scams
The idea of this blog is to avoid Scam offers on the internet especially from the African scammers which includes Nigeria, Ghana, Ivorycoast etc. These culprits have cheated a good number of people by offering scrap metals and other commodities at unbelievable rates.. From my experience as an administrator of a few B2b portals which deal mainly in scrap I have received more than 30 complaints between 2005 and now which involves more than 300,000 $ . Some have got their money back by legal action, but most of the scammers slip away. The modus operandi of these criminals is to contact scrap buyers on the online marketplaces and ... market research, surveys and trends

G8 Report : SCOTLAND PLC: Immigration and asylum in Scotland
On July 22nd 2004 the most recent piece of British asylum and immigration legislation received royal assent, further extending the legal framework that regulates immigrants and asylum seekers in the UK. As an area of British law, immigration and asylum has received an almost unprecedented amount of legislation recently, the latest Act being the fifth in only eleven years. This 'legislative incontinence'1 reflects the great interest and political importance made of the immigration and asylum issue. It is an area that has seen not only incredible domestic focus but also much attention at EU level where there are moves ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Utah's First People: Navajos
It is generally agreed that the Navajos, the largest Indian tribe in the United States, came into the Southwest sometime after A.D. 1300, even though the Dine' ("the People") themselves do not attest to this. The Dine' mention their strong relationship to their Anasazi, the Ancient Ones, in their mythology and ceremonies. This relationship justifies to them permanent ties and absolute use-fights to the native land that is bounded by four sacred mountains: the Blanca Peaks in New Mexico on the east, Mount Taylor in New Mexico on the south, the San Francisco Peaks in Arizona on the west, and the Hesperus Peaks ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics
Thirty or more years ago the interior of Northern Ungava teemed with bands of barren ground caribou. They numbered thousands. Now, however, only a few, in straggling bands, of twenty or less, are seen. A caribou kill of even a half dozen after a long summer's trip into the interior is an event among the Eskimo. Skins for clothing consequently are rare. The Cape Dufferin people are the poorest clad I have ever seen. The clothing of the persons I chose for the film was no exception, so I cast around for means of getting skins with which to make new and better costumes. No skins were to be had. Those few fortunates who had new ...

How do you, personally, decide what is art? Do you distinguish ...
That’s what makes life and art so interesting; we all have different concepts and definition of the terms.  It’s important, I believe, to accept that many, many things can be art; we don’t have to like them, and we might not consider them museum worthy or big dollar items, but they are still art. I am generally pretty accepting of almost any kind of art.  The only ones that truly bother me are the ones that involve the use of dead animal bodies or feces or things like that.  I suppose it can still be called art, but I do not want to see it.   Other art might not be in my taste, might ...
