Can anyone from Scotland help me think up some Scottish names for my new Shetaland Sheepdog puppies? You could name them after one of the Shetland Islands. The main ones are called "yell" "unst" "fetlar" "papa" "whalsay" "mousa" "fair isle" and "mainland". ( I wouldnt recommend mainland) Lerwick is the main town in the Shetlands and could be a good dog name. If you wanted something very shetlandic you could go for "Jarl" after the viking warriors who ruled Shetland or "Helly" after "up helly ah" the big shetlandic fire festival.
Will Shetland and Orkney get their independence from Scotland? Good point, thanks for reminding me. Shetland is a Viking island and so too is Orkney - the very names have that ring of the Vikings about them. Indeed, the world's biggest Viking event is held each year on the Island of Shetland Up Helly A Lerwick Shetland http:// Shetland Times http:// Welsh Barbarian Savage
What would it mean for the rest of the UK if Scotland became fully independent? Well, the Shetland islands want to be part of the UK and have said if Scotland became Independant, The Shetland islands would announce Independance and considering the Oil goes to the Shetland Islands, the Shetland isles would be the ones who get the oil. One thing is for sure though, we would have a Conservative Government for the rest of our lives. Nooooooooo!
Whats living in Edinburgh like? Edinburgh's greater cultural and whether this is in all probability between the main captivating cities interior the international it lacks character. Glasgow is a little greater "down-industry" yet its human beings have a solid sense of id, the music scene's in all probability greater effective and the centers for outdoors activities are infinetly greater effective with Loch Lomond, the Firth of Clyde and the Highlands almost bordering the city. Tourism income is decrease in Glasgow and, as such, so are the charges; Glasgow is likewise an more advantageous city. to be sure the proper of Scotland: view the Black Cuilins of Skye from the mainland or watch a Hogmanay procession like Up Helly Ha on Shetland or, greater accesibly, the fire-balls at Stonehaven in Aberdeenshire.
What are the good areas in Edinburgh? shetland collies? the only shelties i be attentive to of contain shetland sheepdogs. And their greater cunterparts the tough collie. Why do not you get in touch with the kennel club, they could have your community breed club who could have lists of contributors who could have domestic dogs available. yet i think of you will locate shetland collies do not exist.....
How do I go about getting my toddler boy picture taken with a fire truck? make a visit to a fire station they will allow you to take pictures in a fire truck.

Capitalize partial reference to a title? e.g. “…at the Summer Folk Festival. The Festival is…” Do you capitalize "Festival" in this case? For example, "She had a great time at the Summer Folk Festival. This year, the Festival featured several amazing acts, such as...". Or another example, "The ...
"Mid-autumn Festival" and "Moon Festival", Which is better known in English-speaking world? Today is the Mid-autumn Festival of China and I read an article of a Taiwanese scholar telling that his research finds Moon Festival is more better known to English speakers than Mid-autumn Festival, a coined phrase by Chinese, because some authoritative dicitionaries have the entry of the former but not of the latter. But I want to tell him that in our English textbook co-authored by Chinese and English native authors, we get only Mid-autumn Festival and never knows there is a name as "Moon Festival", perhaps it is a holiday of Indians living in Peru or Venezuela.
Where can I see Shetland ponies on Unst? I will be spending a couple days on Unst on the Shetland Islands next year. My wife is very keen on seeing some Shetland ponies, and I am wondering how to go about this.My research seems to indicate that Unst is a good place for this. Furthermore it seems that they are roaming freely and one can find them grazing at the roadsides. Now, by randomly looking through some Google Streetview, all I can find is a lot of sheep.So my question is, how do I go about to find Shetland ponies on Unst? Is there a high probability of us finding them at the roadside without looking for them or are there specific places (farms, parks) where one would have to go to find them?
Helly's number from biconvex functions [closed] Helly's Theorem states the following. Suppose $X_1,X_2,...,X_N$ are convex sets in $\mathbb{R}^d$, such that for any index-set $I$ with $|I| \leq h(d) := d+1$, we have $\bigcap_{i \in I} X_i \neq \...
Does Helly's theorem hold in the hyperbolic plane?
Application of Helly theorem to unit cube case Recall Helly theorem : If $X_i\subset \mathbb{R}^d,\ 1\leq i\leq n $ is a convex body and any $d+1$ sets of $X_i$ has a nonempty intersection, then $\bigcap_{i=1}^n\ X_i$ is nonempty. Question : In $\mathbb{R}^d$, consider a finite number of unit cubes inscribed in a fixed sphere $S$. If any three of them share a common vertex, then all cubes share a common vertex. Proof : For convenience, assume that $\{e_i\}$ is a standard basis and center of $S$ is $\frac{\sum_{i=1}^d e_i}{2}$. That is $C:=[0,1]^d$ can be one. Note that vertex in $C$ has the form $$\sum_{i=1}^d \epsilon_ie_i$$ where $\epsilon_i\in \{0,1\}$. So if two unit cubes share a common vertex, then they share at least two vertices. I can not proceed more. How can we solve this ? Thank you in advance.
