Built between and by the celebrated architect Joseph Poelaert in the eclectic stylethe building is reputed to be the largest constructed in the 19th century [1] and is a notable landmark of Brussels. The total cost of the construction, land and furnishings was somewhere in the region of 45 million Belgian francs. From the lower part of town, it is also possible to take a lift called Ascenseur Lift des Marolles to access it. The current Palace of Justice is located on the Galgenberg hill, between Brussels' upper and lower town, where in the Middle Ages convicted criminals were hanged.

It was initially planned to rebuild it in the same place, but this project, the cost of which was estimated at 3 million Belgian francsquickly aborted. The idea of building it in the Leopold Quarter was no more successful.

In —, another reconstruction project was also buried. Induring the reign of King Leopold Ia Royal decree announced the construction of the new Palace of Justice, and an international architectural contest was organised for its design. After several failed proposals, the then-Minister of Justice Victor Tesch appointed Joseph Poelaert to draw plans of the building in The first stone was laid on 31 Octoberand the building was inaugurated on 15 Octoberfour years after Poelaert's death in As for the old courthouse, it was demolished in Nonetheless, many angry citizens personally blamed Poelaert for the forced relocations, and the expression schieven architect meaning "shameful architect" became one of the most serious insults in the dialect of the Marolles.

Although the construction took place during the reign of King Leopold IIhe showed little interest in the building, and it is not considered part of his extensive architectural programme in Brussels or his legacy as the "Builder-King". At the end of the Second World Waron the eve of the liberation of Brusselsthe retreating German forces started a fire in the Palace of Justice in order to destroy it, as well as the legal records it contained.

As a result, the cupola collapsed and part of the building was heavily damaged. Inthe restoration work was entrusted to the architect-engineer Albert Storrer. Bymost of the building was repaired, and the cupola was rebuilt 2. Renovations on the building have been in progress since These renovations pertain to the repair and strengthening of the roof structure and the walls, as well as putting a new layer on the gilded cupola.

Progress is slow, and init was reported that the decade-old scaffolding was so rusted and unsafe that the scaffolding itself was in need of renovation. Brussels' Palace of Justice was, at the time of its construction, the largest building in the worldand remains today one of the largest courthouses. Peter's Basilica in Rome. Situated on a hill, there is a level difference of 20 meters between the upper and lower town, which results in multiple entrances to the building at different levels.

The central portico, 39 metres feet high, is surmounted by a bust of the ancient Greek Titaness Themispersonification of divine law and order, by Joseph Ducaju. A compass rose with sixteen rays indicates the centre of the room. There is a well-known story that Adolf Hitler was reportedly fond of the building. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

That morning we met in a hostel near Omonia Square, in downtown Athens, where a Spanish friend had befriended him few days before.

At that time, an English volunteer was paying 9 euros per night for his room. Hamza is Pakistani and originally from Gujranwala, a town of more than a million inhabitants, north of Lahore.

Around a year ago he arrived in Greece, hoping to build a better life after working for four years in Oman. He is a timid and educated year old man, the only one to have studied of all his family. In addition to Urdu, his mother tongue, he speaks a fragmented English and a few words of Arabic. That day, he arrived with his backpack, a long beard, all his documents in order, but above all, the hope that we would have helped him finding a new home.

Within three days, the money covering his stay at the hostel would have been over, he said, and if he did not find an alternative he would end up once again sleeping in the street.

In Athens, as in many European cities, becoming invisible is easy, especially if you do not have friends or a family nearby to rely on. You end up living in the street and once there you are just anonymous presence, soon to become gray like the city concrete or the sky during winter time. That morning, the first thing we did was to bring Hamza to talk to Metadrasi staff, a Greek NGO providing interpreting services.

There, thanks to the help of one of the translators, we understood the first important things about his story. Hamza had all the necessary documents, the social worker assured us after having interviewed him in Urdu. According to his account, he would have attended a first interview for the asylum procedure, but he would have missed a second one, scheduled in early December.

Greek bureaucracy, like that of every country, acts at its own pace, and often the rigidity of the procedures clashes with the daily needs of people on the move. This gap creates a fracture between the rights as established by laws and the ones which can be accessed, and people, waiting for an appointment, end up living on the street or with no food for two days in a row. At the moment, the heart of Athens is filled with these informal shelters: in most cases they came to be in very large public buildings such as former hotels or schools, where people live or carry out a number of support activities such as preparing meals or distributing clothes.

Within these informal facilities, the number of European volunteers vary and some of them are mainly managed by refugees. That afternoon, following the directions we were given, we went up to the top of Exarchia and at one point, the presence of the 5th School was announced by the notes of a Fairouz song, a famous Lebanese singer. From one of the windows in the building, the music played loudly and finding the entrance of the building was as quick as going around the corner.

This squat, located in what once was a school, has its walls covered with graffiti and cracks and overall the building looks both majestic and decadent. At the entrance, we asked for help in Arabic to a man sitting on a wooden chair who soon called one of the few Urdu-speaking residents.

When the man arrived, Hamza began to tell his story as the improvised interpreter nodded and a crowd of people gathered around them. However, since the beginning, it was clear that the person we needed to convince was only one: a very special Syrian, whom we had already heard of in the previous days, and from now on we will refer to him with his initial, C.

This activist, famous within the Syrian community and among the Athens-based international volunteers, according to the international media has been living in Greece since the late eighties. On the day we met, he was wearing worn-out jeans, a pair of hiking boots, and kufiyah around his neck. While Hamza was explaining his story, some residents of the squat went to call him so that he could decide what to do.

When he arrived, after a short presentation, we told him in English that our friend would have ended up sleeping in the street in two days and we wanted to find him a place. He listened carefully and after we had finished explaining, he advised us to visit another squat, established just few days earlier, and aimed at hosting only men above eighteen years old.

With the help of the navigator and following Hamza, we found the second squat without much difficulty: in front of that place, my Spanish friend and I had already passed by the previous day but from the outside it looked just like another abandoned building.The city of Rome harbours the most obelisks in the world. There are eight ancient Egyptian and five ancient Roman obelisks in Rometogether with a number of more modern obelisks; there was also until an ancient Ethiopian obelisk in Rome.

The Romans used special heavy cargo carriers called obelisk ships to transport the monuments down the Nile to Alexandria and from there across the Mediterranean Sea to Rome. On site, large Roman cranes were employed to erect the monoliths.

At least eight obelisks created in antiquity by the Egyptians were taken from Egypt after the Roman conquest and brought to Rome. This is the smallest obelisk in Rome, with a height of 5. At least five obelisks were manufactured in Egypt in the Roman period at the request of the wealthy Romans, or made in Rome as copies of ancient Egyptian originals.

Erected on top of the Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi by Bernini in It was struck by lightning in May After being restored, it was cut into three pieces and returned to Ethiopia in April On the other side of it is a high tower made of one piece of stone, like a three-cornered diamond raised upon three brazen feet; and many, taking it for a holy thing, creep between the ground and the base of that tower. This was a work undertaken in honour of Julius Caesar and assigned for his burial, and on the top of it are three large gilt apples in which is the dust of the Emperor [ sic ] Julius Caesar, and certainly it is a noble edifice and marvellously ordered and very strange.

It is called Caesar's needle, and in the middle and at the base, and even at the top, are a few ancient letters carved in the stone which now cannot well be read, but in fact they record that the body of Julius Caesar was buried there.

Therefore, we decided to go back to the 5th School but this time, C. Then, somehow confused, we reached the second squat again. Some of the residents we spoke with before were still outside and when we asked about Abu Mahmud Mousa they told us he had left few days before.

The third time we went up to the 5th School, C. At that point, we left for good. As we walked down the narrow street, Hamza, with lowered eyes, ripped off the piece of paper. He said goodbye and went back to the hostel. Until today, it is still not clear to me why they did not accept him.We always look for value in our bets but we understand each week you are looking for bets you like.

Most free bets are matched, which means you have to deposit and bet the amount of the free bet first and then you will be credited with an equal amount to your account. This is a great bet tip because if you choose your bet carefully you can bet on a market with quite good odds that is normally a bit risky, but be covered if the bet loses.

This is one of the best football betting tips for beginners. Teams like Manchester United or Chelsea occasionally have an off-game and this makes their odds shoot up for long term betting, E. A good example of this was when Scolari went to Chelsea in 2008.

The pre-season odds predicted that Manchester United were favourites to win the title again. However, they had a poor start to the season. Chelsea, on the contrary had a roaring start and all the football pundits were tipping them to go on and win the title.

Everyone who had bet on United during the few weeks when their form dropped got great odds and won lots of money. However, after the first game of the season when a few players have scored, the odds all change. If a more mediocre player has got a couple of goals in their first match, odds on him will then drop because more people are backing him to do well.

The big players usually go on and score lots of goals in the subsequent matches, and the people who bet on them after one or two games rather than before the season often win more money.

After a while you will get used to noticing these football betting tips yourself. If a team or player has a reputation of being good in the long term, use this reputation for your long term bet predictions.

These are premiership football betting tips, but can be applied to any league or competition, and even other sports. This is the same as saying there will be 2 goals or under, or 3 goals and over. So why is this a good bet to place. This is a great bet to place because it gives you more chance to win and makes the odds better in big games.

Using Manchester United and Chelsea againif these two teams are playing each other, the odds are likely to be quite low for each team, with a possibility of a draw as well.

Another reason why this betting tip works so well is that you can actually calculate and predict the outcomes by adding together the average goals scored by each team from all other games they have played in the current season.

If you think a factor might affect one of the teams form, you can use this to your advantage as well and bet on more or less than the expected goals by looking at this factor. If you are feeling confident you can also bet on the over 3. This is one of our favourite football betting tips and we use it all the time when betting. There are often factors that may affect a team that is expected to do well which reduce their performance, so you can benefit by betting on the other team.

However, there are many other things that also affect the performance of a team and its players. This betting tip is important because there are so many variables. Consider the motivation and team spirit of the team you are betting on. Motivation can be very important and can really affect team performances. The size of the match often motivates players more. Sometimes small teams beat giants just because they really want to beat them. Sometimes one team has a lot more to lose or gain.
