3 THE BEST NEIGHBORHOOD WALKS: Vesterbro to Frederiksberg, Waterfront Walk, Latin Quarter to Christiana, Norrebro to the Lakes

Chris Peacock FrommerMedia ePub

Amager Square.Vesterbro to FrederiksbergThe once-gritty Vesterbro district west of the central train station has been transformed in the past few years, with a new wave of hipster bars and cafes, ethnic shops and restaurants. Around the Carlsberg Brewery, one of the oldest in the world, the atmosphere changes as you enter smart Frederiksberg, with its royal connections and expansive mansion-lined boulevards. START: Bus 1A to Dybbølsbro St.❶ ★★ Kødbyen (Meatpacking District). Vesterbro’s rejuvenated Meatpacking District might be known for its hipster nightlife, packed with trendy bars, restaurants, and clubs, but it’s also home to a cluster of independent art galleries and studios well worth exploring. These forward thinking galleries are largely gathered on Flæsketorvet square. One of the most established is Galleri Bo Bjerggaard (Flæsketorvet 85 A) with curated work focused on international contemporary art, photography, and film installations from the likes of Per Kirkeby, Georg Baselitz, and Jonathan Meese. Just next door, V1 Gallery (Flæsketorvet 69-71) is one of Copenhagen’s most progressive art galleries, where some of the world’s most legendary street artists, such as Banksy, Todd James and Lydia Fong, have exhibited. Gallery Poulsen (Flæsketorvet 24) is also good for a browse for its small collection of colorful prints and drawings. A block away, the high-ceilinged and beautifully-lit Fotografisk Center (Bygning 55, Staldgade 16) showcases everything from fine art photography to photo journalism through eight or so different exhibitions a year. Free admission to Flæsketorvet galleries. Fotografisk Center admission 25DKK.

10. Minerals and the Prostate

Murray, Frank Basic Health Publications ePub

Of the many minerals and trace minerals essential for good health, zinc and selenium are the ones most beneficial to the prostate.

Zinc was initially shown to be biologically active over 100 years ago, but it was not until the early l960s that it was shown to be an essential nutrient for man, according to Foods & Nutrition Encyclopedia. While the mineral is found throughout the body, the highest concentrations are in the eyes, hair, nails, prostate gland, and skin. The body contains about 2.2 g of zinc, more than any other element except iron.1

Zinc is a component of several enzyme systems that are involved in digestion and respiration. It is necessary for the transfer of carbon dioxide in the red blood cells; for the proper calcification of bones; for the synthesis and metabolism of protein and nucleic acid; for the development and function of the reproductive system; for wound and burn healing; and for the ability to taste accurately.

A subclinical deficiency of zinc can be a problem for many Americans, especially men, who may not get the recommended dietary allowance of 15 mg/day, reported Robert A. Ronzio, Ph.D. The best dietary sources are bran, brewer’s yeast, meat, poultry, seafoods, and whole grains. Symptoms of a subclinical deficiency of zinc include impotence, lethargy, loss of appetite, slow wound healing, and white spots on fingernails, among others.2

Chapter 1 There Is No “Free” Market

Hartmann, Thom Berrett-Koehler Publishers ePub

Look at history and you will find that the middle class was the creation of liberal democracies. George Washington and Thomas Jefferson did not fight a bloody war to create a country only for wealthy property holders. (See chapter 4 to fully understand how wrong is the corrosive myth of the “rich Founders.”) Our Founders believed that every Bob Cratchit willing to work for his living should be able to earn enough to own his house and support himself and his family. That’s what it means to be middle class—and part of why Jefferson put “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” into the Declaration of Independence.

The Founders also knew that the middle class doesn’t just materialize out of thin air. That’s why, in the preamble to the Constitution, they wrote that one purpose of government was to “promote the general welfare.”

Two centuries later, when the middle class was in danger of disappearing during the Great Depression, Franklin D. Roosevelt almost single-handedly created a new middle class through his New Deal policies. Roosevelt’s success demonstrates that government can and must “promote the general welfare” because only government can create the conditions that make a middle class possible. And FDR was able to do it only because an overwhelming majority of Americans voted for it in a relatively free and open democracy.

3 The Appraisal Interview

Lelslie Rae HRD Press, Inc. PDF

3 The Appraisal Interview


This activity substitutes practical and experiential learning for the more formal input session on interview techniques, and encourages learning by the delegates rather than teaching by the trainer.


As it is described here, it is suitable for use on training courses that are concerned with the skills of appraisal interviewing, but the activity can be readily modified for use in training on other interview techniques.


To identify the skills, techniques, and structures involved in job appraisal interviews

To consolidate the learning in the first objective by means of an experiential activity

To provide an interview structure for the delegates to follow during practice interviews


The value of this activity is that the trainer is not required to deliver a considerable input session, with the resultant risk of limited learning.

Instead, the participants themselves extract the information and, in so doing, commit themselves to the method.
