I ventured to Soho yester

I ventured to Soho yesterday after a long day in the office. One of the highlights was visiting @linastores which is an absolutely fantastic Italian deli selling wonderful produce. The ravioli looked amazing. The shop opened in 1944 and still has an authentic feel. I will return! . . . . . #linastores #soholondon #italiandeli #chasing_facades #londonshopfronts #omgb #prettycitylondon #prettycity #prettycities #exploringlondon #mydarlinglondon #iwalkedthisstreet #londontimeout #timeoutlondon #london4all #thelondonlifeinc #ravioli #mylondon #londononly #bbcbritain #guardiancities #secretlondon #mysecretlondon #prettylittlelondon #brewerstreet #postcardplaces #london_enthusiast #bestukpics #topeuropephoto

"As my trip went on, my w

"As my trip went on, my world expanded beyond 37 feet at first that was all I concentrated on and lived in. And then I realised I lived in the whole ocean and I started to look out more and more..." . Kay Cottee. This is a nautical museum, in case you're wondering about the relevance! . In 1988, Cottee was the first woman to circumnavigate the world solo, non-stop & unassisted. She did it in 189 days using a sextant, paper maps and (I assume) log tables essentially the same technology people had been using since the 18th century. The first man to circumnavigate the globe solo was Francis Chichester, who had done it twenty years previously, in 226 days, with one stopover. . Anyone else wish they'd taught us how to use sextants in school? Being able to navigate by the sun & stars would have been much more of a motivation to learn trigonometry . #wonderful_places #prettycitylondon #mydarlinglondon #mytinyatlas #forbestravelguide #welltravelled #travelgram #thephotosociety #instapassport #cntraveler #culturetrip_ldn #inspiremyinstagram #loves_england #widenyourworld #lifeofadventure #thatauthenticfeeling #exploretocreate #britishsnaps #brilliantmoments #bbcbritain #pursuepretty #igerslondon

 You can talk with someon

You can talk with someone for years, everyday, and still, it won't mean as much as what you can have when you sit in front of someone, not saying a word, yet you feel that person with your heart, you feel like you have known the person for forever.... connections are made with the heart, not the tongue. #beautifuldestinations #visitengland #photosofbritain #photosofengland #ukpotd #lovegreatbritain #instabritain #bbcbritain #guardiancities #capturingbritain #britishsnaps #ofquietmoments #traveldeeper #prettylittletrips #topeuropephoto #wonderfulworld #iamatraveler #global_ladies #exklusive_shot #cbviews #canonmomente #canondeutschland @canondeutschland #canon #eos #6d

An extract on #bbcbritain

Political geography is concerned with the study of both the spatially uneven outcomes of political processes and the ways in which political processes are themselves affected by spatial structures. Subfields include Electoral geography, Geopolitics, Strategic geography and Military geography

The independence of Saint-Domingue was proclaimed by Dessalines on 1 January 1804. The exact number of deaths due to the Haitian Revolution is unknown. Dessalines was proclaimed "Emperor for Life" by his troops. Dessalines at first offered protection to the white planters and others. Once in power, he ordered the massacre of most whites. Without regard to age or gender, those who did not swear allegiance to him were slain. In the continuing competition for power, he was assassinated by rivals on 17 October 1806. Only three categories of white people were selected out as exceptions and spared: the Polish soldiers, the majority of whom deserted from the French army and fought alongside the Haitian rebels; the little group of German colonists invited to the north-west region; and a group of medical doctors and professionals. Reportedly, people with connections to officers in the Haitian army were also spared, as well as the women who agreed to marry non-white men. Fearful of the influence of the slaves' revolution, U.S. President Thomas Jefferson refused to recognize the new republic, as did most European nations. The U.S. did not officially recognize Haiti for decades, until after the American Civil War. The revolution led to a wave of emigration. In 1809, nearly 10,000 refugees from Saint-Domingue settled en masse in New Orleans. They doubled the city's population. In addition, the newly arrived slaves added to the city's African population.

Haiti has consistently ranked among the most corrupt countries in the world on the Corruption Perceptions Index. It is estimated that President "Baby Doc" Duvalier, his wife Michelle, and their agents stole US $504 million from the country's treasury between 1971 and 1986. Similarly, after the Haitian Army folded in 1995, the Haitian National Police (HNP) gained sole power of authority on the Haitian citizens. Many Haitians as well as observers of the Haitian society believe that this monopolized power could have given way to a corrupt police force. Similarly, some media outlets alleged that millions were stolen by former president Jean-Bertrand Aristide. In March 2004, at the time of Aristide's being kidnapped, a BBC article wrote that the Bush administration State Department stated that Aristide had been involved in drug trafficking. The BBC also described pyramid schemes, in which Haitians lost hundreds of millions in 2002, as the "only real economic initiative" of the Aristide years. Conversely, according to the 2013 United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) report, murder rates in Haiti (10.2 per 100,000) are far below the regional average (26 per 100,000); less than that of Jamaica (39.3 per 100,000) and nearly that of the Dominican Republic (22.1 per 100,000), making it among the safer countries in the region. In large part, this is due to the country's ability to fulfill a pledge by increasing its national police yearly by 50%, a four-year initiative that was started in 2012. In addition to the yearly recruits, the Haitian National Police (HNP) has been using innovative technologies to crack down on crime. A notable bust in recent years led to the dismantlement of the largest kidnapping ring in the country with the use of an advanced software program developed by a West Point-trained Haitian official that proved to be so effective that it has led to its foreign advisers to make inquiries. In 2010, the New York City Police Department (NYPD) sent a team of veteran officers to Haiti to assist in the rebuilding of its police force with special training in investigative techniques, strategies to improve the anti-kidnapping personnel and community outreach to build stronger relationships with the public especially among the youth. It has also helped the HNP set up a police unit in the center of Delmas, a neighborhood of Port-au-Prince. In 2012 and 2013, 150 HNP officers received specialized training funded by the US government, which also contributed to the infrastructure and communications support by upgrading radio capacity and constructing new police stations from the most violent-prone neighborhoods of Cit Soleil and Grande Ravine in Port-au-Prince to the new northern industrial park at Caracol.
