Known as the Iron Lady for her toughness, Thatcher had served as the United Kingdom’s only female prime minister, leading her country from 1979 to 1990 as head of the Conservative Party.
Margaret Thatcher led a long and intriguing political life, which got us thinking about some of the surprising things we learned about her along the way.
In 1979, in her first year of office as Britain’s prime minister, Thatcher traveled to Japan for an economic summit.
Although Thatcher was prime minister for 11 years, she didn’t have a chef in her employ. Thatcher wasn’t the first politician to remark on the challenges of being under constant scrutiny, and balancing work and home life.
Margaret Thatcher was not liked by many and I agree at times she made some harsh decisions.
The institutionalized corruption of privatizing the nation’s utilities so her mates in the City could get ever richer. Engineering the biggest transfer of wealth from the poorest to the richest ever seen in the UK up to that point. The Poll Tax, riots, poverty, record unemployment, the most draconian and repressive employment legislation anywhere in the developed world, more small businesses going to the wall than at any period prior to her rule, her defense of and friendship with Chilean mass-murdering dictator General Pinochet and the ruination of the NHS to name but a few of her achievements.
The lady might not have been for turning but when that solemn procession passes you by, turn your back. I admire the toughness and determination she displayed and respect the part she played in ending the cold war.
If she hadn?t made the financial reforms today maybe you?d be using EURO like unique currency in whole United Kingdom. The strong interpersonal bonds between Margaret Thatcher, Ronald Reagan, Mikhail Gorbachev and Pope John Paul II put a victorious and peaceful End to the Cold War.
In reference,to the UK having HAD Elizabeth , I take it you mean Our monarch who is still alive! Baroness Thatcher did more harm then good for this Country we lost many industries of which we will never regain. And if I were too vent my spleen I would be here all day., I cannot remember one good thing ,all through childhood I recall strikes,police brutality,union collapse,the poor getting poorer,the rich having different treatment however.
No leader can satisfy everybody, but a leader who can take a stand and stick to it, is rare and well worth following. Stan, we have never been a Socialist State, we have a Welfare State, which is entirely different. She was an amazing leader, tough and rigid, but man did she save Great Britain from disaster and put order back.

Two years after being discovered deep in a South African cave, the 1,500 fossils excavated during the Rising Star Expedition have been identified as belonging to a previously unknown early human relative that National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence Lee Berger and team have named Homo naledi.
With at least 15 individuals of all ages and both sexes represented, the find adds an unprecedented amount of information to our understanding of early human evolution in Africa. In addition, the absence of any other animal remains or large debris in the fossil chamber strongly suggests that these non-human beings intentionally deposited their dead within this cave.

She is remembered for her generally conservative views, including weakening trade unions, deregulating industries, divesting state-controlled parts of the economy, and taking a tough stance against Communism.
Not having hosted many female heads of state, the Japanese arranged to have 20 female karate experts escort her.
The Prime Minister would like to be treated in exactly the same manner as the other visiting Heads of Delegation. Every night, she reportedly cooked dinner for her husband, Denis Thatcher, and she frequently cooked for cabinet members as well. But that women had determination and she was made out of somehting strong and she did more then any of the politicians today. Turn your back and, instead, remember the countless millions she gloatingly destroyed in pursuit of yet more wealth for her pals.
Having not lived in England during her leadership, I cant comment on her internal policies but I ask those bemoaning her choice to destroy certain industries to consider if they would be still willing to work in the tin mines for a thrippance a week as that is what would be required to operate these industries and still make a profit in the first world. Sorry, because I?m not an citizen English but you would like to lose your precious currency and subdued to Euro Zone ?
Thatcher ruined our country, she sold of our industries to the highest bidder, put millions people out of work and many communities today still live with her legacy, decimated by the loss of jobs due to her policies.

Jonny Phillips discovers the shocking truth thata€”in certain circumstancesa€”custard powder can indeed be explosive, and he experiments to prove the point. Is custard a bomb waiting to go off?[LAUGHS] You didn't really think that was gonna blow up did you?  Fear not, there's absolutely no need to defuse that trifle in your fridge. All the classes (upper, middle, working class, stinking rich and the poor got together and become an unoffical country to the world (scotland). The past can be caused bad effects at that time but the present and, obviously, the future are what really matter. Sure she deserves respect because she was a good politician (better than most of the current ones), but still, she had a repugnant ideology against the middle class.
They toured the desert islands off the southeastern coast of the Baja Peninsula and they listened to presentations by more than a dozen experts, including several whose Baja California research is funded by the Society. Richard Ambrose and Jonny Phillips demonstrate the science behind ice-skating while trying to maintain their balance! Next year September 18 is a big deal for the whole world is Scotland to become a soverign country or have more devolved power. Her political legacy is one of rampant inequality and greed, privatisation and social breakdown. Some may say Baronness Thatcher destroyed a generation of Britons, I say she sacrificed a generation of Britons to ensure many generations of prosperity. 1973 is the year I was born by the way so I know what im talking about my EYES seen it all. When I blew into the tin, I introduced oxygen - one of the essential ingredients for fire - and at the same time, I turned the pile of custard powder into an airborne dust cloud which created the explosion.
OTHERWISE, BEGIN SCROLLING DOWN FOR A TREASURE-TROVE OF RARE AND BEAUTIFUL PHOTOS OF OLD JAPAN.


ENAMI WEARING SAMURAI ARMOR, TAKING A REST BETWEEN POSES IN HIS YOKOHAMA STUDIO, CA.1898-1900. ENAMI, OTHER WELL-KNOWN JAPANESE PHOTOGRAPHERS WHO OPERATED DURING THE MEIJI-ERA (1868-1912) ARE MENTIONED THROUGHOUT THE COMMENTS.I HOPE YOU FIND THE STORY AND DATA BOTH INTERESTING AND HELPFUL.
FOR THOSE WHO ARE HERE PRIMARILY TO LOOK AT THE IMAGES, I HOPE THAT YOU EXPERIENCE SOME ENJOYMENT IN GAZING AT A FEW OF ENAMI'S"LOST PICTURES" OF OLD JAPAN. THOSE THAT LIVE FOR DISCOVERING NEW DATA AND CONNECTING THE DOTS WILL NO DOUBT FIND SOME EYE-OPENING REVELATIONS HERE.A OF COURSE, WE ALL LOVE KIMBEI KUSAKABE AND THE REST OF THOSE ILLUSTRIOUS JAPANESE PIONEERS OF PHOTOGRAPHY WHO GOT THEIR START LONG BEFORE ENAMI OPENED HIS OWN MEIJI-ERA STUDIO. THEIR BEST WORK IS ENOUGH TO TAKE YOUR BREATH AWAY.HOWEVER, ENAMI ALSO HAD HIS FANS AND FRIENDS, BOTH AS A PERSON AND AS A PHOTOGRAPHER.
AS YOU SCROLL DOWN THESE PAGES, FOR A FEW MOMENTS YOU MAY STEP INTO ENAMI'S SHOES, AND TAKE A PEAK THROUGH HIS LENS.A LIKE SO MANY OTHERS --- SOME NOW FAMOUS, BUT MOST BEING FORGOTTEN --- ENAMI DEDICATED HIS LIFE TO CAPTURING, AS BOTH ART AND DOCUMENT,A WORLD THAT WAS QUICKLY VANISHING BEFORE HIS EYES. AS THIS SITE IS A PERSONAL HOMAGE TO ENAMI, YOU WILL FIND SOME AMATEUR ELEMENTS, AND THE OCCASIONAL PITFALL. AT ALL TIMES, PLEASE "EAT THE MEAT, AND SPIT OUT THE BONES" WHILE DIGGING FOR VISUAL TREASURE.DISCOVERING THE OCCASIONAL GEM OF A PICTURE, OR ODD BIT OF INFORMATION, WILL HOPEFULLY MAKE THE SCROLLING WELL WORTH IT.
The general wording seen above was fairly common to all photographic self-promotion during the Meiji-era, and actually contains less specifics than some of his studio ads which he placed in various guide books of the time. OGAWA, who was actually a year younger than Enami, was still his "elder" in terms of experience.
It was photographed by Enami's friendly competitor and neighbor Kozaburo Tamamura, whose studio was located at No.2 Benten Street. It would be built in 1894 just down the street on the right hand side, and appear in endless views and postcards as the most recognizable landmark of Benten Street. Other images of Enami's studio -- both interior and exterior views -- are shown farther down on this page.A  While offering many of the same services and productions as his contemporaries, he also engaged in other activities that made him unique.
Further, while no photographer did "everything", Enami worked and published in more processes and formats than any other Japanese photographer of his time. A He was one of only a few photographers born during Japan's old Edo-Bakumatsu period, who went on to photograph right through to the Showa period of Emperor Hirohito.Enami was also one of the few to experience, and then successfully outgrow his roots as a traditional maker of the classic, large-format "Yokohama Shashin" albums. While successfully embracing the smaller stereoview and lantern slide formats, he added to that a portfolio of Taisho-era "street photography" that maintained his own unique and artistic content. Enami and Kimbei Kusakabe are now the only two Japanese photographers known to have a surviving list of their commercial 2-D images. While Enami's 2-D portfolio contained a sprinkling of older, public domain images, his 3-D images and slides made from them were wholly his own.A THE 3-D CATALOG "S 26. Girls Looking at Pictures" A Maiko and two Geisha Looking at Stereoviews in Enami's Yokohama Studio. One of over 1000 cataloged 3-D images of old Japan.A THE "CATALOG OF COLORED LANTERN SLIDES AND STEREOSCOPIC VIEWS"A  Not surprisingly, Enami matched his older Catalog of Meiji-era Prints with a separately published catalog of his classic STEREOVIEWS.
In the case of the 3-D Catalog, the lantern-slides were all made directly from one half of the stereoview negatives. The Cover and two sample pages of the Stereoview Catalog are shown just below in the Enami Activity List numbers (6) and (9).
ENAMI'S ACTIVITIES and CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE WORLD OF JAPANESE PHOTOGRAPHYA A  For the moment, based on a wide range of primary sources, it is now clear that T.
