10 Religion in UK
Religion in the United Kingdom and in the countries that preceded it has been dominated, for over 1,400 years, by various forms of Christianity. According to the national census, a majority of citizens identify as Christians, although regular church attendance has fallen dramatically since the middle of the twentieth century, and immigration and demographic change have contributed to the growth of other faiths.

Religious affiliations of United Kingdom citizens are recorded by regular surveys, the four major ones being the UK Census, the Labour Force Survey, the British Social Attitudes survey and the European Social Survey. According to the 2011 UK census, Christianity is the major religion, followed by Islam, Hinduism, Sikhism, Judaism and Buddhism in terms of number of adherents. This, and the relatively large number of individuals with nominal or no religious affiliations, has led commentators to variously describe the United Kingdom as a multi-faith, secularised, or post-Christian society.

The United Kingdom was formed by the union of previously independent countries from 1707, and consequently most of the largest religious groups do not have UK-wide organisational structures. While some groups have separate structures for the individual countries of the United Kingdom, others may have a single structure covering England and Wales or Great Britain. Similarly, due to the relatively recent creation of Northern Ireland in 1921, most major religious groups in Northern Ireland are organised on an all-Ireland basis.
11 Plant and animal life in UK
Except for northern Scotland, the highest hills of the north and west, the saturated fens and marshes, and the seacoast fringes, the natural vegetation of the British Isles is deciduous forest dominated by oak. Human occupation has left only scattered woodlands and areas of wild or seminatural vegetation outside the enclosed cultivated fields. Few of the fine moorlands and heathlands, wild though they may appear, can lay claim to any truly natural plant communities. Nearly all show varying degrees of adjustment to grazing, swaling (controlled burning), or other activities. Woodland now covers less than one-tenth of the country, and, although the Forestry Commission has been active since its creation in 1919, nearly two-thirds of this woodland remains in private hands. The largest areas of woodland now stand in northeastern Scotland, Kielder and other forests in Northumberland, Ashdown Forest in Sussex, Gwynedd in Wales, and Breckland in Norfolk.
The moorlands and heathlands that occupy about one-fourth of the total area of the United Kingdom consist of arctic-alpine vegetation on some mountain summits in Scotland and the much more extensive peat moss, heather, bilberry, and thin Moliniaand Nardus grass moors of the highland zone. Similar vegetation exists on high ground in eastern Northern Ireland and on the Mournes, and there are considerable areas of peat moss vegetation on the mountains of Antrim. In the lowland zone, where light sandy soils occur, the most common plant of the moorlands is the common heather—whose deep purple adds a splash of colour to the autumn countryside—but these areas also contain bilberry and bell heather. A strip of land immediately bordering the coastline has also largely escaped exploitation by humans and domesticated animals, so that patches of maritime vegetation often appear in approximately their natural state.
The survival of the wild mammals, amphibians, and reptiles of the United Kingdom depends on their ability to adapt to the changing environment and to protect themselves from attacks by their enemies, the most dangerous of whom are human. British mammals survive in a greater range of habitats than do amphibians or reptiles. Most of the formerly abundant larger mammals—such as boars, reindeer, and wolves—have become extinct, but red deer survive in the Scottish Highlands and in Exmoor Forest and roe deer in the wooded areas of Scotland and southern England. Smaller carnivores (badgers, otters, foxes, stoats, and weasels) thrive in most rural areas. Rodents (rats, squirrels, mice) and insectivores (hedgehogs, moles, shrews) are also widely distributed. Rabbits are widespread, and their numbers are increasing. The other nocturnal vegetarian, the brown hare, lives in open lowland country, while the mountain hare is native to Scotland. Amphibians include three species of newt and five species of frogs and toads, while reptiles comprise three species of snakes, of which only the adder is venomous, and three species of lizards. There are no snakes in Northern Ireland.
In many respects the British Isles are an ornithologist’s paradise. The islands lie at the focal point of a migratory network, and the coastal, farmland, and urban habitats forbirds are diverse. Some 200 species of birds occur in the United Kingdom, of which more than one-half are migratory. Many species are sufficiently versatile to adapt to changing conditions, and it is estimated that suburban gardens have a higher bird density than any kind of woodland. The most common game birds are the wild pigeon, pheasant, and grouse. Most numerous are the sparrow, blackbird, chaffinch, and starling.
Marshland reclamation has displaced waterfowl to various bird sanctuaries. A continuous effort by ornithological organizations has promoted and encouraged research and conservation. It also has led to the creation of bird refuges, sanctuaries, and reserves. These developments, along with a more sympathetic and enlightened attitude, may help to redress some of the worst effects of environmental changes on bird life.
Many British rivers, once renowned for their salmon, trout, roach, perch, pike, and grayling, have become polluted, and inland fisheries have consequently declined. Freshwater fishing is now largely for recreation and sport. The Dogger Bank in the North Sea, one of the richest fishing grounds in the world, has provided excellent fishing for centuries. Other good waters for fishing lie in the Irish Sea and also off the western coast of Scotland. Chief offshore species are cod, haddock, whiting, mackerel, coalfish, turbot, herring, and plaice.

12 Тrade services transportation and telecommunication in UK The United Kingdom has one of the most developed and extensive infrastructure systems in the world. Increasingly, many aspects of the infrastructure, including roads, railways and the communication systems, are aging and in need of repair. Because of constraints on the government's budget, London has endeavored to transfer responsibility for the maintenance and construction of new roads to local and regional governments. There are also increasing efforts to transfer control of infrastructure projects to private industry. To achieve these transfers, the government has 2 main programs, Public-Private Partnerships (PPP) and Private Finance Initiatives (PFI). The 2 programs use public funds to establish private corporations that then engage in infrastructure projects. PPP and PFI programs mean that the private companies take any risks in these projects, but also retain any profits. The government has also initiated privatization programs in the kingdom's infrastructure. Telecommunications, utilities (including electricity), gas and water supply, and passenger rail service have all been privatized.
The United Kingdom has 371,603 kilometers (230,914 miles) of roadways. This includes 3,303 kilometers (2,052 miles) of expressways. There are few roads that are not paved in some fashion. The kingdom also has 16,878 kilometers (10,488 miles) of railways. The majority of this track is standard gauge and one-quarter of it is electrified. Northern Ireland has 342 kilometers (212 miles) of older 1.6 meter gauge track. The extensive road and railway networks facilitate the movement of goods throughout the kingdom. The large oil and natural gas fields in the North Sea have led to the construction of lengthy pipelines to transport energy resources from the fields to refineries in the kingdom. There are 933 kilometers (580 miles) of crude oil pipelines, 2,993 kilometers (1,860 miles) of pipelines for other types of petroleum products, and 12,800 kilometers (7,954 miles) of natural gas pipelines. There is also an extensive network of canals and waterways which total 3,200 kilometers (1,988 miles).
Since the United Kingdom is an island, it is dependent on the maritime and air transport of goods. The nation has some of the world's busiest ports such as London, Glasgow, Manchester, and Portsmouth. Other major ports include Aberdeen, Belfast, Cardiff, Dover, Falmouth, Hull, Leith, Liverpool, Peterhead, Scapa Flow, Tees, and Tyne. These ports handled some 4.08 million tons of cargo per year. The kingdom has a large merchant marine, which totaled 173 ships in 2000. Of these, 50 ships were petroleum tankers, 39 were container vessels, 33 were general cargo ships, and 10 were passenger cruise ships. The British account for 6 percent of the world's maritime trade. The United Kingdom has 498 airports, of which 357 have paved runways. There are also 12 heli-ports. The nation's largest national airline is British Air. In 1997, the British air market totaled 130 million passengers and 17.9 million tons of cargo. By 2015, that market is expected to total 300 million passengers.
One of the most significant infrastructure projects in the history of the kingdom was the completion in 1994 of the Channel Tunnel, popularly known as the "Chunnel." This 35-kilometer (22-mile) tunnel under the English Channel connects England and France. For the first time in its history, the United Kingdom had a direct, if limited, land route for the transport of goods and people to and from the continent. Since its opening, the amount of goods that are transported through the Chunnel has grown by almost 20 percent per year.…...

As long as there is a gallon of milk in the fridge to go along with this yummy treat, my family is ready for chocolate chip cookies anytime. Oftentimes, my mother and I make the cookies together to enjoy some conversation and time while making a delicious treat. Chocolate chip cookies not only bring my mother and me together, but they provide us with a delightful treat, and they allow us to share them with our entire family once we have our finished product. Usually my mom and I prepare in advance. We make sure we have enough ingredients between the two of us, and we make a list of missing ingredients to pick up from the grocery store.

How to Treat Ibs Using Hypnosis

...Assignment - Module 8 Word Count 2221 This essay will be describing the condition irritable bowel syndrome. I will also be discussing the possible uses of hypnosis in helping to treat the aspects of this condition. Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a condition of the gut and it has been noted that it is a condition which affects about 1 in 10 people at some time. Statistically it has been recorded that it is more prevalent among people between the ages of 25 – 45 and females are more affected than males. However this condition can cause problems at any age to both sexes and ethnicity may be a factor to be considered. For example data for Pakistan shows that males between 16-30 have a higher rate of IBS. There are many symptoms that many IBS suffers endure such as: Feeling and being sick by vomiting Diarrhoea Constipation Pain in the abdomen Bloating/wind Feeling that you haven’t fully emptied all faeces from the rectum Stress and anxiety Depression to list a few. This condition causes great problems with the sufferer as it can destroy and disrupt their day to day life. Before a person with IBS and a hypnotherapist work together the IBS patient should have already seen a GP and consequently been diagnosed. An ethical hypnotherapist would need to know that all other, more serious conditions such as bowel cancer, have been ruled out and that the problem is IBS for a fact. The doctor should......

Is Law Forcing Doctors to Treat Mentally Ill Prisoners

...convicted of murdering the grocery clerk in 1979. Furthermore, the Arkansas Supreme Court affirmed his conviction. It wasn’t until 1987 when Mr. Singleton began showing signs of mental deterioration. “To what extent can a government take invasive, involuntary action using medical personnel who are sworn to heal, save and treat when the result of their medical application and experience is not healing, treating and saving but instead has the result of causing executions?” (Liptak, p.1). As a future nurse, I ethically am sworn to heal. Understandably, in this situation it can contradict what I stand for. However, I know that treating Mr. Singleton will be my ultimate goal regardless of his death. For example, in the case of a terminal cancer patient, I would not deny medical treatment just because the person will inevitably die. So, in the case of Mr. Singleton, I would not see him as a “prisoner” but as a “patient” and still implement his treatment for mental illness. As well, if it is the best interest of the patient to receive treatment, then I will follow through with treatment. I realize in the end Mr. Singleton will be executed but, again, I have to treat him in the same manner as I would any other patient I come in contact with. As a medical professional it would be unethical for me to be prejudiced against Mr. Singleton by not giving treatment just because he is a prisoner. In conclusion, we must understand the Mr. Singleton’s guilt is not what is in question. He......

Uses of Hypnotherapy to Treat a Medical Condition

...Uses of Hypnotherapy to treat a medical condition Introduction The purpose of this essay is to describe and explain the uses of hypnotherapy in the treatment of a medical condition. For this essay I have chosen to look at a chronic life limiting illness called Motor Neurone Disease. This is a disease that can affect many different aspects of a person’s life and is very aggressive in its symptoms. I have met quite a few people with this condition whilst working in the Neurophysiology department at the QMC, where all the nerve and muscles studies and EMG’s are performed. It not only changes the person’s life but also the lives of the people around them. I found this research both upsetting and informative. MND is a progressive degenerative disease which sadly has no known cure and sufferers will usually die within 5 years of the onset of the disease, there is no way to tell that you have this disease but there are many warning signs such as difficulty with speech, walking and dropping things due to not being able to grip correctly. MND is an unusual disease that damages nerve cells that the brain would usually use to send messages to the muscles and spinal cord where the upper and lower motor neurones are negatively affected. This then alters the muscle strength and can result in muscle loss. Theses neurons also if not working correctly will affect the messages sent to the brain giving the commands the body needs to enable walking, swallowing and any other muscle use. This...

...HOW TO TREAT ‘TREATS’ Angela Foster has been appointed the new branch manager for the ‘Treats’ sandwich shop in Burbank Mall. This happens to be the third outlet of this shop owned by a Cuban Family. Their main offering is handmade tasty sandwiches which are prepared in home cooked style with Cuban ingredients and recipes. The family sources the ingredients from Cuba and bakes the breads fresh, every morning to upkeep its taste. The other branches of the store are doing well. The first one was opened by the founder, Maria Porto in their native neighborhood after they migrated from Cuba 30 years ago. As other migrants flocked in from Cuba into the same neighborhood as well, Maria first started to make sandwiches for them on a regular basis, since that was the cheapest food they could buy. Gradually, the taste became so popular, that Maria’s sandwiches were an instant hit, and it flourished into a very successful business, in the Cuban dominated neighborhood of San Bernardino. The second branch was opened by Maria’s sister in Camarillo, a very sparsely populated part of California. Again, Cuban migrants form a significant part of the customer base and the business is doing well. Maria’s son Miguel came up with the idea of opening the third branch in the neighboring Burbank Mall in order to attract mainstream customers from the local population.

Price Beat Guarantee, Trick or Treat?

...Price beat guarantee, trick or treat? Last year I wanted to travel to Cairns, and I found a new way to save money by using a price beat guarantee offered by Jetstar through word of mouth. Through further research I gradually found, no other airlines are using this method of marketing, where as in other industries there are a lot of companies using this method to attract customers attention. For example, Dan Muphy, Officeworks,, Harvey Norman, and so on. What is price beat guarantee? I think most of you guys have heard of it. Guaranteed beat guarantee refers to, I believe, businesses who say they will allow consumer to purchase the same product at a same or lower price which a consumer can proof that a competitor is offering the same product at a lower price. With so much competition and evolving marketing strategy for buying goods and services, therefore price has become a more common differentiator than it was in the past. It is an anti-competitive tactic that avoid competitors attempt to steal market share by undercutting prices. And firms use this strategy as a method of building customer loyalty. So here I post one of my experience about price beat guarantee. Last year I walk into the good guys where their advertising and marketing make you believe that you will always get the cheapest price from their shops, but what I didn’t know was only possible with a with a lot of strict conditions and terms.

Medication to Treat Adhd

...Medication To Treat ADHD Simi Linton in Reassigning Meaning defines Disability as, “ A physical or psychological condition considered to have predominantly medical significance” (Linton, 282). In Harlan Lane’s article, he writes about people who are deaf and how they now have the option to undergo surgery to have cochlear implants. These implants are electronic devices that stimulate the auditory nerve directly, and provide a sense of sound to one who is deaf or hard of hearing. However, Lane expresses a feeling of disapproval in regards to the cochlear implant. Lane feels as though if a child were to receive the implants, they would lose fundamental value in the deaf community“(Lane, 264). Also, succeeding in the hearing community would be a struggle, resulting in personal/social identity insecurities. However, if someone has an opportunity to improve such an essential sense as hearing, they should most certainly take advantage of it. Treatment for the learning disability ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) is an exceptional example because the medication only lasts for a short period of time, and also makes the person taking it, feel and appear different. This treatment can lead to nearly different personalities when someone does or does not take the medication, which often time can lead to personal/social identity issues and other insecurities. ADHD testing involves assessing one’s strengths and weakness’ in school functioning. Many children......

Distinction Between Offer, Invitation to Treat and Advertisement

...relation to offer and acceptance include the distinction between an offer and an invitation to treat – is needed to be able to identify specific examples of where an offer or an invitation to treat exists. If the maker of the statement clearly intends to be bound by acceptance of the stated terms the statement will amount to an offer. In Harvey v Facey [1893] ,Harvey sent a Telegram to Facey which stated: - "Will you sell us Bumper Hall Pen? Telegraph lowest cash price-answer paid;" Facey replied by telegram:- "Lowest price for Bumper Hall Pen £900." Harvey then replied:- "We agree to buy Bumper Hall Pen for the sum of nine hundred pounds asked by you. Please send us your title deed in order that we may get early possession." The Privy Council held that there was no contract concluded between the parties. Facey had not directly answered the first question as to whether they would sell and the lowest price stated was merely responding to a request for information not an offer. There was thus no evidence of an intention that the telegram sent by Facey was to be an offer. An invitation to treat, on the other hand, is merely an invitation for customers to submit an offer. While it indicates a willingness to deal, it is distinguishable from an offer in that it lacks an intention to be bound. Similar to an invitation to bid in the public procurement process, invitations to treat (sometimes referred to as invitations to bargain) often arise in the context of......

Corazza1 1First Department of Medicine, Centro per lo Studio e la Cura della Malattia Celiaca, Fondazione Istituto di Ricovero e Cura a Carattere Scientifico Policlinico S. Matteo, University of Pavia, Pavia, Italy Enteropathy-associated T-cell lymphoma (EATL) is a complication of celiac disease (CD). This tumor derives from the neoplastic transformation of aberrant intraepithelial T lymphocytes emerging in celiac patients unresponsive to a gluten-free diet. Poor adherence to a gluten-free diet, HLA-DQ2 homozygosity, and late diagnosis of CD are recognized as risk factors for malignant evolution of CD. Recurrence of diarrhea, unexplained weight loss, abdominal pain, fever, and night sweating should alert physicians to this complication. The suspicion of EATL should lead to an extensive diagnostic workup in which magnetic resonance enteroclysis, positron emission tomography scan, and histologic identification of lesions represent the best options. Treatment includes high-dose chemotherapy preceded by surgical resection and followed by autologous stem cell transplantation, although biologic therapies seem to be promising. Strict adherence to a gluten-free diet remains the only way to prevent EATL. (Blood. 2012;119(11): 2458-2468) Introduction Celiac disease (CD) is a......
