Box-E, Bristol: restaurant review

An old shipping container is now home to a small but perfectly formed Bristol restaurantBox-E, Unit 10, Cargo 1, Wapping Wharf, Bristol BS1 6WP. Meal for two, including drinks and service: £85 To understand Box-E in Bristol it’s worth knowing a little about the recent history of globalisation. From the late 90s onwards Middle America became the recipient of increasing volumes of cheap consumer goods, transported by sea from China to Long Beach, California, and then onwards by rail in shipping containers. They were the product of China’s economic boom and the comparative advantage of their cheaper workforce. At first it was too expensive to ship the containers back to China and so most were scrapped once they reached Chicago. Continue reading...

Russia to build full-fledged naval base in Syria

On Jan. 20 Moscow and Damascus signed a 49-year old agreement to modernize the repair and docking facility in the Syrian port of Tartus. Upon the agreement’s expiration, a 25-year extension will be automatic unless one side informs the other a year in advance of any desired changes. Russia’s Northern Fleet to keep presence in Mediterranean Sea in 2017 The Tartus naval repair facility was built by the Soviet government in 1977, and it’s the only Russian naval facility in the Mediterranean Sea. Experts say that Moscow earned the right to a base in Tartus as remuneration from Damascus for its assistance in the war against the Islamic State and other extremist terror groups supported by the Gulf Arab states and the U.S. Major construction Until recently, the Tartus facility was nothing but a floating pontoon for rudimentary ship repair. According to the new agreement, Russia will build a full-fledged base at Tartus and have the right to deploy up to 11 ships in the area. "We’re beginning major construction of military infrastructure - a wharf, barracks, headquarters, ammunition storage, and etc.," said a retired Colonel Mikhail Khodorenok, a military observer at the online publication, Gazeta.ru. "Tartus will turn into a naval base headed by a fleet vice admiral." Khodorenok added that it would take two to three years to build the base. The number of servicemen stationed there will depend on the number of ships deployed in Tartus, and it’s highly unlikely that 11 ships will be docked in the region at the same time. Instead, most likely about five ships will be based in Tartus on a regular basis, while visiting ships will appear from time to time. "Today, there is no serious threat to Russia that requires Moscow to deploy a large naval group in the Mediterranean," said Vadim Kozyulin, a professor at the Academy of Military Sciences. Anyway, Russia doesn’t have such a large amount of naval hardware immediately available." How Russia, Iran and Turkey see the future of post-war Syria "Ships that are part of the Admiral Kuznetsov aircraft carrier group will be stationed at the base, and most likely these will be ships from the Black Sea and Northern Fleets - large landing, patrol and anti-submarine ships," said Kozyulin, adding that he believes the nuclear cruiser Peter the Great and the Admiral Kuznetsov aircraft carrier will require additional infrastructure. "Tartus is one of the pillars of Russian influence in the Middle East, and no one knows how events will develop in the Middle East, in the world, and in Russia in the future," said Gevorg Mirzayan, an associate professor at the department of political sciences at the Financial University  under the Government of the Russian Federation. "Russia needs to be present not only in the Black Sea, which NATO can close at any moment, but also in the Mediterranean Sea." Russia offsets Iran Mirzayan said Russia is the bedrock of Syria’s security because the country’s neighbors still want to undermine Damascus. "Syria needs Russia to counterbalance Iran because Teheran will want to have leverage and put pressure on Syria," explained Mirzayan. "This is why Damascus is interested in our strong presence in the region. For Bashar Assad this means long-term investment in the future and the possibility to obtain a strong ally for many years to come."

Непарадный Лондон 1973 года

Очень многие привыкли произносить слово "Лондон" с придыханием: мировой центр финансовой мощи и международных интриг,  излюбленное место миллиардеров, шик особняков и роллс-ройсов, легендарная английская стильность и всё такое прочее. Город действительно прекрасный и неповторимый, это подтвердит почти всякий, кому довелось в нём пожить или хотя бы просто побывать. Поэтому довольно странно разглядывать фотографии 1970-х, на которых неотрыточные виды  города кажутся почти такими же удручающими, как облетевшие весь Интернет жуткие кадры нью-йоркской разрухи тех же 70-х. Но всё таки содержание лондонских снимков 1970-х несколько иное: здесь мы видим в основном массовый снос старой и полностью деградировашей застройки, на смену которой приходя громады современных жилкомплексов и башни офисных высоток. Мы видим город, который умирает, чтобы возродиться уже в новом обличии. И это было только начало. Настоящий строительный бум придёт в 1980-е при Тэтчер, когда от исторической застройки Лондона не останется камня на камне. То, что не смогли сделать немецкие бомбы и ракеты, сделали неумолимвые законы капитализма.  Moorhouse Rd mage hosted on flickr  Westbourne Park 1974 image hosted on flickr  St. Stephens Crescent image hosted on flickr  St. Stephens Gardens image hosted on flickr  image hosted on flickr  Demolition Westbourne Park Rd  Wapping image hosted on flickr  Shoreditch image hosted on flickr  Wapping image hosted on flickr  Ledbury Rd image hosted on flickr  Thames from Wapping image hosted on flickr  Milwall at express Wharf image hosted on flickr  Westbourne Park image hosted on flickr  west from Milwall image hosted on flickr  Tower Hamlets i image hosted on flickr  Whitechapel Новые доминанты  в силуэте города, это только начало: image hosted on flickr  Tower Bridge 1973 image hosted on flickr  Stephen and Matilda Houses Wapping image hosted on flickr  image hosted on flickr  Whitechapel image hosted on flickr  Looking from Westbourne Park image hosted on flickr  St. John's Church and school Wapping image hosted on flickr  View towards central London from Brunel Estate image hosted on flickr  Cheshire St. Sunday Market image hosted on flickr  image hosted on flickr  All photos: JB [email protected] http://www.flickr.com/photos/jonathanbarker/ Источник
