I came across this video about Darjeeling Himalayan Railway, Enjoyed every minute of it.
Darjeeling Himalayan Railway. This is the documentary broadcasted last year in BBC Four channel.
Darjeeling Himalayan Railway is a line so close to the people that it flows like a river through their lives. But the relationship between the train and the people is changing as a new generation of Gurkhas populates these hills – demanding an independent state and fighting for a new identity, as they set out on a journey into the modern Indian world.
When you are at University, college or even if you’re a freelancer writer there are multiple types of work which you could be asked to complete. With essays and dissertations being prime examples of such, you might also be involved with a student publication which asks you to compose short articles relatively quickly. If your profession is as a freelance writer, creating short articles might be what you complete on a daily basis. No matter what the reason is, knowing how to do this in a relatively short amount of time could prove to be problematic especially if several different articles are due to be completed in very quick succession. If you find yourself in this situation, there is no need to worry because listed below are a few ideas about how to go about this.
Know your subject
As you would have been given your brief or handed title suggestions to your superior long before you start to compose it, you will know a fair idea about what is expected of your article. Therefore, it is recommended that the subject matter which will be the focus of what is about to be written should be kept in mind at all times so that the minimal word count which has been assigned to you is straight to the point with not a single word wasted. The person or countless number of people who are reading it will want to know exactly what you have to say about the subject Read more…
When you are a business owner, the size of your company might be different from what a competitor is like. The approach of being listed in a Thomson directory or even the Yellow Pages still has its advantages as not everyone reverts to the internet in order to acquire information about the services of a company which is based nearby to them. However, for the vast majority of people the internet is used on a regular basis especially to find out the services which a person might be looking to hire. As there are millions of pages on the internet with the same amount appearing when a search is being carried out, helping you to stand out from the crowd is very important. By doing this will help what you have to offer being distinguishable from what other companies have to offer with the charge applied to joining a social networking site being zero.
In all, there are multiple social networking sites which you can join. This includes Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn. Each social networking site has their own audience. For example, it seems that the majority of the world has joined Facebook with some people even owning multiple accounts. Twitter is fast becoming one of the most popular sites in the world especially when celebrities have done exactly this with well-known brands also following suit. LinkedIn is often regarded as a version of Facebook but one which is used by businesses. Each has their own individual advantages but if they are all joined, this will provide greater scope to your business. This is particularly important when other competitors might be working in the same location as yourself but your results are often more successful than theirs with your client base being more substantial too. This is why no matter how big a company is, social networking plays a very important role in the way which it shapes how popular a business is. Read more…
