...This essay will discuss and present ideas relating to international music festivals and the reduction of their environmental impact. In order to explore this area it is first necessary to look at how international music festivals contribute negatively to the environment, then the processes that organisers and attendees can put in place to reduce this will be evaluated. In recent years there has been an increased interest from event’s organisers, and especially music festival organisers, in achieving sustainability (Mair & Laing ,2012). It can be argued that this interest manifests from many different sources including personal values of the organisers, demand for greening from stakeholders, and a desire to educate and provide example for groups in society. However a key driver for reducing environmental impacts of music festivals is notably the criticism that has arisen from research into the negative impacts of such events. A music festival is defined as “a performance event comprising two or more performances of live music over one or more days and at recurring periods, which is packaged as a coherent whole” (Ivan and Wijnberg, 2006). A study by Julie’s Bicycle in 2007 found that a large music festival (more than 40,000 people) in the UK including audience transport will produce in the order of 2,000 t CO2e. Approximately 500 music festivals take place in the UK annually with over 5 million people attending from across the world (Julie’s Bicycle, 2007) producing around...

Politics in Myanmar
...Political development of Myanmar (Burma) Myanmar’s ethnic governmental issues are the front-side of the legislative issues of national solidarity in late improvement in Burma. Since the Second World War finished no issue had been all the more forever and midway on the political motivation of Burma than the topic of how to adapt to requests of politicized ethnicity while at the same time keeping up the regional uprightness, security and power of the focal state. In any case, it has been the way in which most individuals from Burma's political tip top and also remote students of history and political researchers have seen the subject of ethnicity which had raised its consequences to the peak of common sense and hypothetical concern. Since ethnicity has for the most part been conceptualized as a credited property with the implied supposition of instinctual and primordial hostilities between diverse gatherings as has been standard in Western political however since the ascent of patriotism, instead of as a social characteristic reflecting biological and subcultural attributes(South 2008). A false issue has been postured in the practice and investigation of Burma's legislative and political issues. The late history of present day Burma has been full of vicious clash, quite a bit of which has been propelled by ideas of ethnicity. Classes of ethnic personality have for the most part been viewed as very little of an issue to most, reflecting constant qualities, which characterize......

...Her new goal is to work with anyone and everyone in Burma to make a better country for her people. General elections were held in Myanmar on 8 November 2015, with the National League for Democracy winning an absolute majority of seats in the combined national parliament. While NLD leader Aung San Suu Kyi is constitutionally barred from the presidency (as both her husband and her children are foreign citizens), she has let it be known that she will hold the real power in any NLD-led government. Albert Einstein was a German-born physicist. He was born in Ulm, in the Kingdom of Württemberg in the German Empire on 14 March 1879. Most people probably know him as the most intelligent person who ever lived. His name has become part of many languages when we want to say someone is a genius, as in the phrase, “She’s a real Einstein”. He must have been pretty brainy to discover the Theory of Relativity and the equation E=mc2. In 1999, ‘Time’ magazine named Einstein as the Person of the Century. No one could have guessed this would happen when he was at school. He was extremely interested in science but hated the system of learning by heart. He said it destroyed learning and creativity. He had already done many experiments, but failed the entrance exams to a technical college. He didn’t let this setback stop him. When he was 16, he performed his famous experiment of imagining traveling alongside a beam of light. He eventually graduated from university, in 1900, with a degree in......
