VINSON, ANTARCTICA

   

Vinson Massif  is a large mountain massif in Antarctica 

that is 21 km (13 mi) long and 13 km (8.1 mi) wide 

and lies within the Sentinel Range of the Ellsworth Mountains

It overlooks the Ronne Ice Shelf near the base of the Antarctic Peninsula

The massif is located about 1,200 kilometres (750 mi) from the South Pole

Vinson Massif was discovered in January 1958 by U.S. Navy aircraft. 

In 1961, the Vinson Massif was named by the Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names (US-ACAN), 

after Carl G. Vinson, United States congressman from the state of Georgia

for his support for Antarctic exploration. 

On November 1, 2006, US-ACAN declared Mount Vinson 

and Vinson Massif to be separate entities.[4][5]

 

 

Mount Vinson is the highest peak in Antarctica, 

at 4,892 metres (16,050 ft)[6]

It lies in the north part of Vinson Massif’s summit plateau 

in the south portion of the main ridge of the Sentinel Range 

about 2 kilometres (1.2 mi) north of Hollister Peak.[5] 

It was first climbed in 1966 by an American team led by Nicholas Clinch

An expedition in 2001 was the first to climb via the Eastern route, 

and also took GPS measurements of the height of the peak.[7] 

As of February 2010, 1,400 climbers have attempted to reach the top of Mount Vinson.[8]

ZURICH, SWITZERLAND

    

Zürich or Zurich is the largest city in Switzerland 

and the capital of the canton of Zürich

It is located in north-central Switzerland[4] 

at the northwestern tip of Lake Zürich

Zürich is a hub for railways, roads, and air traffic. 

Both Zurich Airport and railway station are the largest and busiest in the country.

 

 

Permanently settled for over 2,000 years, 

Zürich was founded by the Romans

who, in 15 BC, called it Turicum

However, early settlements have been found dating back more than 6,400 years 

(although this only indicates human presence in the area 

and not the presence of a town that early). [7] 

During the Middle Ages, 

Zürich gained the independent and privileged status of imperial immediacy and, 

in 1519, became a primary centre of the Protestant Reformation 

in Europe under the leadership of Huldrych Zwingli.[8]

 

 

The official language of Zürich is German,[a] 

but the main spoken language is the local variant of the 

Alemannic Swiss German dialect, Zürich German.

 

 

Many museums and art galleries can be found in the city, 

including the Swiss National Museum

the Kunsthaus and newer Theater 11 in Oerlikon. 

Schauspielhaus Zürich is one of the most important theatres 

in the German-speaking world.[9]

 

 

Zürich is a leading global city and among the world’s largest financial centres 

despite having a relatively small population.[10] 

The city is home to many financial institutions and banking companies. 

Many of Switzerland’s research and development centres 

are concentrated in the Greater Zürich area 

and the low tax rates and canton funding subsidies attract overseas companies 

to set up their headquarters or finance treasury services in the city.[citation needed]

 

 

Monocle’s 2012 “Quality of Life Survey” ranked Zürich first 

on a list of the top 25 cities in the world “to make a base within”.[11] 

In 2019 Zürich was ranked among the ten most liveable cities in the world 

by Mercer together with Geneva and Basel.[12]

MAHE, SEYCHELLES

      

Welcome to Mahe. 

Enjoy the golden sands of the Indian Ocean.

 
  

Mahé is the largest island (157.3 km²) of Seychelles

lying in the northeast of the nation in the Indian Ocean. [1] 

It contains the capital city of Victoria 

and accommodates 86% of the country’s total population. 

The island was named after Bertrand-François Mahé de La Bourdonnais

a French governor of Isle de France (modern-day Mauritius).

 

 

Mahé’s tallest peak is Morne Seychellois at 905 m (2,969 ft), 

which lies in the Morne Seychellois National Park

The northern and eastern parts of the island 

are home to much of the population 

and the Seychelles International Airport which opened in 1971. 

The southern and western parts have Baie Ternay Marine National Park

Port Launay Marine National Park

and University of Seychelles

The Sainte Anne Marine National Park lies offshore, 

as do Conception IslandThérèse IslandAnonyme Island 

and several smaller islands.

 

 

Mahé was first visited by the British in 1609 

and not visited by Europeans again until Lazare Picault‘s expedition of 1742. 

The French navy frégate Le Cerf (English: The Deer) arrived at 

Port Victoria on 1 November 1756. 

On board was Corneille Nicholas Morphey

leader of the French expedition, 

which claimed the island for the King of France 

by laying a Stone of Possession on Mahe, Seychelles’ oldest monument, 

now on display in the National Museum, Victoria.

 

 

In August 1801 a Royal Navy frigate HMS Sibylle 

captured the French frigate Chiffonne on the island. 

Mahé remained a French possession until 1812 

when it became a British colony. 

It remained a colony until 1976 when Seychelles became an independent nation.

 

 

Mahé’s forests have rare endemic plants found only in Seychelles, 

such as the critically endangered Medusagyne oppositifolia (the jellyfish tree), 

the carnivorous Nepenthes pervillei (Seychelles pitcher plant), 

and many unique species of orchid.

 

 

Mahé had a huge land reclamation project due to a shortage of housing, 

in the areas of Bel Ombre and the Port of Victoria.[2]
