Changing Lives: Traineeship guides Danielle out of a dead end
Danielle always wanted to work in conservation, but after sending out numerous job applications and receiving rejection after rejection, she worried she'd have to leave Northern Ireland to find work. Luckily, a paid traineeship with the Ulster Wildlife Trust, funded by National Lottery players, allowed her to get the skills she needed to get her dream job, while earning money. Now, she works at the picturesque Castle Ward in County Down, and she couldn't be more pleased. Changing Lives is a series of stories about people's whose lives have been changed by National Lottery funded projects.

Highlights of Beautiful Cornwall Coast Path  Walk UK Made  by Huggie2love
Highlights of My journey along the South West Coast Path in Beautiful Cornwall UK I have use this Beautiful song Carrickfergus a Beautiful Irish folk song on this new Video. Hope you like and enjoy this new video My Featuring pictures & videos are of Newquay to St Ives River Helford Falmouth St Mawes Porthleven, Mevagissey Charlestown, Fowey Polrun Polperro I’ve started the walk from Sandbanks Poole Dorset South West Coast Path, 630 miles of stunning scenery. I Walk through Dorset Devon and Cornwell on to finish at Somerset’s Minehead. The Walk of a Lifetime I’ve been through beautiful picturesque Harbours and Villages and stunning scenery all along the Coastal Path. Just outside the market town of St Austell is Charlestown, a beautifully preserved Georgian port. The port was begun in 1791 by Charles Rashleigh, an entrepreneur who wanted to take advantage of a booming mining industry in south Cornwall. Fowey is a bustling small port which still has a busy commercial life in addition to providing attractive moorings for leisure boats. Its harbour is flanked by fourteenth century blockhouses, one in Fowey and one on the opposite side of the river in Polruan St Catherine's Point is on the Fowey side of the harbour entrance. In medieval times St Catherine's chapel stood on the cliff top, displaying a light and functioning as a lighthouse. The fort below, St Catherine’s Castle was built in the reign of Henry VIII to defend the harbour entrance. Polruan is an ancient fishing village just across the water from the better-known Fowey Built on a very steep hill, Polruan is bounded on three sides by water; Pont Creek to the north, the River Fowey to the west and the English Channel There are frequent ferries to Polruan, an interesting village with cottages clinging to the hillside. It is worth crossing to see the panoramic views from the top of the hill. The South West Coast Path National Trail is rated as one of the top walks to be found anywhere in the world Where else can you walk along 630 miles of such superb coastline? The heritage, wildlife, geology and scenery along the way are truly inspirational and every day walking it brings stunning new experiences. To embark on the challenge of hiking the entire route from Somerset's Minehead on the edge of Exmoor around to the shores of Poole Harbour in Dorset, “Have a lovely evening and Beautiful Wednesday much ԼƠƔЄ (((Hugs))) from Huggie xoxo

West Lancashire Light Railway Steam Gala 2016
So far this year,for one reason or another I've not managed to get to any of the events I had been looking forward to attending. So It made a pleasant change to be able to get along to The West Lancashire Light Railway for their Steam Gala on the 6th and 7th August 2016. It was made all the more enjoyable when I realised it had been almost three years since my last visit, Time sure is flying past. Irish Mail, Utrillas, Joffre and guest Locos GP39 and Alpha were in action over the weekend. The Merseyside Transport Trust were offering rides around the local area on vintage buses. There was also plenty of things to do and see for all the Family. As I said before, This was the first event I've managed to get to this year and I was not disappointed. Even the weather was kind to us,although compared to Saturday, Sunday was a slightly overcast and a little windy. Once again the guys at the WLLR produced a brilliant event they can be very proud of. Many Thanks to you all for all the hard work you obviously put in for a thoroughly enjoyable weekend.

Evidence Ancient Aliens Planned Humanity
Was earth visited in the past by Ancient Aliens flying UFOs around and telling there where to build their cities....perhaps hoping that one day in the future we would put together the clues? An uncanny and what seems to be a planned alignment of a multitude of ancient archeological sites around Earth strongly points towards humans of the past being guided, globally, and over many millennia by some sort of higher intelligence. Personally, my mind was absolutely blown once I manually connected all the sites on Google Earth myself, which is exactly what I’m about to do for you. At the end of the video, I expect your mind to be blown just as mine was. I also encourage you to try this out for yourself in Google Earth and replicate my results. Before we begin, please forgive me for butchering some of these names. Nearly all of these sites are considered what is known as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, sites that are of extreme special cultural or physical significance. 1) Easter Island: We’re going to start off with Easter Island, which is home to the mysterious Moai statues which were created around 800 years ago for reasons that still remain unknown. A total of 887 monolithic stone Moai statues have been counted. 2) Nazca Lines: The Nazca Lines are mysterious giant glyphs carved into the ground in the Nazca Desert of Peru. They were thought to be built around 1600 years ago - no one knows why they are there as they can only be seen from the sky...why would anyone do that when flight hadn't been invented yet? 3) Machu Picchu: Machu Piccu was built around 600 years ago at the height of the Incan Empire and allegedly as a means to honor a "sacred landscape." If you havn't heard of it before, it's a city literally built on top of a mountain by hand….with rocks sometimes weighing as much as 40 tons. 4) Tassili n'Ajjer Tassili n'Ajjer is a range of mountains in Algeria in the Sahara Desert. It contains some 15,000 ancient cave drawings some of which are up to 10,000 years old. Some of the carvings are a bit strange as well. 5) Persepolis Persepolis is the ancient capital of Persia. It was built around 2500 years ago. 6) Khajuraho Group of Monuments The Khajuraho Group of Monuments are 85 special temples to honor Hindu gods built around 1000 years ago. They were allegedly built in this area as it is an area where quote “the gods love to play” according to local legend. The temples are dedicated to various Hindu gods such as Shiva, Vishnu, Ganesha, and Jain Tithanks. 7) The Oasis at Siwa The Oasis at Siwa is estimated to be around 4,600 years old..and many believe it could be much older. It is famous for being the home of the Oracle of Amun. Amun was an Egyptian Diety. Alexander the Great believed that his divinity was a result of his visit to this oracle. 8) The Pyramids of Giza I'm sure you've heard of the Pyramids of Giza before. They were estimated to have been constructed around 4,600 years ago. 9) Mohenjo Daro Mohenjo Daro was built in around 4600 years ago. It is part of the ancient Indus Valley Civilization. The name literally translates to the Mound of the Dead. It is thought to be one of the world's earliest major urban settlements. 10) Angkor Wat Angkor Wat was built around 1000 years ago and was dedicated to the god Vishnu. According to a 13th Century Chinese traveler, it was allegedly believed that the temple was contructed in only one night by an architect of divine power. Now let’s complete our journey by connecting the final destination to our original one, Easter Island. Once we zoom out….do you see a pattern? ALL of these sites line up on the same line around the Earth. The line is, except for a few very minor deviations that may be due to the Earth slightly shifting over the many millenia these sites were constructed as well as perhaps partial user error on my part mapping these out…..perfect. It almost looks like an equator. The probability of this occuring by chance is basically zero. Why do all these ancient and quite important sites line up on the same line on Earth? Was someone guiding the construction of all these ancient sites? Why are so many if not all of the sites related to something divine….and what was that divinity? In order to orchestrate such a thing, these civilizations would have somehow had to have made contact with each other across the space of the entire planet as well as over the course of several millenia in addition to being able to basically see the Earth from space in order to create such an uncanny alignment. These arn't the only sites that line up either, there's quite a few more sites that line up as well as you can see here. I only cut some out for the sake of brevity. Once again I encourage you to try this out for yourself. Also, if you know of any mysteries you’d like me to cover in upcoming videos, leave a comment below or send me a message on Youtube.

Since the end of Nepal’'s civil war 3 years ago, the state has remained paralyzed by political in-fighting, allowing criminal groups to thrive. One human rights organisation estimates that over 2,100 people have been kidnapped for ransom, and many believe the surge in crime is due to political parties protecting criminals. In Kathmandu, criminal gangs focus on kidnapping the middle classes who lack political connections. Their favoured targets are businessmen and shop-owners of Indian origin, commonly known as Marwaris. Lacking trust in their government, people have turned to displays of collective violence to get results. Earlier this year, they directed their fury at kidnappers. Within 1 month, 15 people were brutally lynched by angry mobs in Terai but all of those attacked were innocent. “"The Terai has become worse than ever - …it has become very, very violent.”" Daniel Bogado – Ref. 4582 Journeyman Pictures is your independent source for the world's most powerful films, exploring the burning issues of today.

The Desolate North - Against Fracking - UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Fountains Abbey is one of the largest and best preserved ruined Cistercian monasteries in England. It is located approximately three miles south-west of Ripon in North Yorkshire, near to the village of Aldfield. Founded in 1132, the abbey operated for over 400 years, until 1539, when Henry VIII ordered the Dissolution of the Monasteries.The abbey is a Grade I listed building owned by the National Trust and part of the designated Studley Royal Park including the Ruins of Fountains Abbey UNESCO World Heritage Site.The National Trust believes it has a duty to defend the countryside under the terms of the National Trust Act 1907 which established the organisation.We have a presumption against fracking on National Trust land because natural gas is a fossil gas. The mining process also gives rise to potential environmental and landscape impacts.

Lake District, The Complete Tour, England
The Lake District in northwest England is a very popular holiday destination, famous for lakes, forests, mountains and quaint villages. It was designated a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2017. We are staying in Bowness-on-Windermere for several days of fun excursions. Click to Subscribe http://bit.ly/2pmdyeu http://tourvideos.com/ our tour arranged by: http://www.mountain-goat.com Four of the top activities are exploring the towns, taking boat rides, do a little nature walking, and take a driving tour of the region to see the other nearby lakes and quaint villages. Most of our program takes place during a van tour of the lakes that visits 10 different lakes, including Brotherswater, Derwent Water, Grasmere, Ullswater and Windermere. On the van ride we also take a walk in the village of Grasmere, famous for William Wordsworth. You will be amazed by Castlerigg Stone Circle, 4500 years old, one of the area’s historic gems. Then we take a lunch stop in Keswick, whilst exploring the traditional Lakeland market town. We also do a Lake Cruise, enjoying uninterrupted views of the Lakeland fells from Derwent Water. You can pick from a variety of kinds of excursion boats on Lake Windermere: you can have a one-hour cruise or go for an all-day expedition. You could enjoy a cruise with dinner, there are hydrofoils, rowboats or sailboats for rent -- all kinds of nautical activities exist here on the shores of Lake Windermere. By the end of the 18th century the region was already becoming popular with visitors and this has steadily grown to the point where today nearly 20 million annual visitors enjoy the beauties of this special place. This huge amount of tourists can be a challenge to deal with in your visit, but you will find the beauties of the natural landscapes make your efforts quite worthwhile. In this show we have useful suggestions to help your planning. Summer season is obviously most crowded and brings with it the best weather with least chances of rain, so take your chances, but we suggest the shoulder season, like the visit shown here which was during May, a perfect time to visit. We never felt inconvenienced by any crowds. After all, facilities like hotels and restaurants are able to handle the peak crowds of summer, so if you are here in May, with proper reservations at a decent hotel, you will have no problems. Of course the summer is when everybody wants to be here but we find that May is ideal. You’ll need to spend at least several nights in the area this to really get a chance to see the charming countryside, explore some towns, go shopping, and perhaps enjoy some fine dining. This is actually two towns joined together as one: Windermere is a mile to the north and Bowness-on-Windermere lies along the shores of the lake. Each center has its cluster of shops and restaurants, but the main focus is down at Bowness, which has most of the hotels and that special setting along the water. The town of Bowness is a good base of operations for heading out to see the other lakes in the district and enjoying some day tours as we will be doing. Windermere is the largest and the longest lake in the British Isles, about 10 miles long with a 24-mile circumference, and there are several villages along the shores of the lake. We see Lake Windermere the easy way, on a boat ride. We are travelling in mid-May and ran into some great weather. And actually it’s quite pleasant the temperature here is in the low 70s there is a slight breeze on the lake but not terribly windy. a most pleasant day. The temperature is pleasant enough that it’s comfortable to sit outside, After all you want the view -- that’s why we’re enjoying this boat ride, to have a look at this charming rolling countryside along the shores of the lake of Windermere. Some of us decided to get off the boat at Ambleside which is one of the main small towns here in the Lake Country. There's a level nature trail from the boat dock to Ambleside town passing first through an open meadow with some Roman ruins visible, and then along beautiful stream. We also get to see the sheep frolicking around. The walk only took about the walk only took about 30 minutes. We came upon foundations of ancient Roman buildings. From such forts the Romans could control hundreds of square miles. the army was staffed in part by Roman soldiers and mercenaries, some of them from Yugoslavia. Roman rule began in Britain back in A.D. 43. A massive army of 40,000 soldiers quickly conquered most of the island and Romans remained in control for the next 300 years. When the path follows along the stream it becomes so beautiful, lined with wildflowers, that you feel you stepped into some kind of movie or dream. Those few minutes became one of the top highlights of the three-week tour of the British Isles. A simple walk through the woods could provide a transcendental experience.
