International Maritime OrganizationDistance: 3.4 miTourist Information 4 Albert Embankment London, United Kingdom SE1 7SR
The International Maritime Organization, known as the Inter-Governmental Maritime Consultative Organization until 1982, is a specialized agency of the United Nations responsible for regulating shipping. The IMO was established in Geneva in 1948 and came into force ten years later, meeting for the first time in 1959. Headquartered in London, United Kingdom, the IMO has 171 Member States and three Associate Members.The IMO's primary purpose is to develop and maintain a comprehensive regulatory framework for shipping and its remit today includes safety, environmental concerns, legal matters, technical co-operation, maritime security and the efficiency of shipping. IMO is governed by an assembly of members and is financially administered by a council of members elected from the assembly. The work of IMO is conducted through five committees and these are supported by technical subcommittees. Member organizations of the UN organizational family may observe the proceedings of the IMO. Observer status is granted to qualified non-governmental organizations.IMO is supported by a permanent secretariat of employees who are representative of the organization's members. The secretariat is composed of a Secretary-General who is periodically elected by the assembly, and various divisions such as those for marine safety, environmental protection and a conference section.HistorySOLASInter-Governmental Maritime Consultative Organization was formed to fulfill a desire to bring the regulation of the safety of shipping into an international framework, for which the creation of the United Nations provided an opportunity. Hitherto such international conventions had been initiated piecemeal, notably the Safety of Life at Sea Convention, first adopted in 1914 following the Titanic disaster. IMCO's first task was to update that Convention; the resulting 1960 Convention was subsequently recast and updated in 1974 and it is that Convention that has been subsequently modified and updated to adapt to changes in safety requirements and technology.
The Countryside Alliance is known for its lobbying and campaigning work on wildlife and management, but its agenda is far broader than that, incorporating food & farming, local businesses and services, and the injustices of poor mobile phone signal and broadband in the countryside.
The Countryside Alliance was formed in 1997 when the British Field Sports Society, the Countryside Movement and the Countryside Business Group the Alliance amalgamated. We are known for having arranged several pro-countryside marches and rallies including the Hyde Park Rally on 10 July 1997, the Countryside March on 1 March 1998 360,000 people) and the Liberty & Livelihood March on 22 September 2002 (407,791 people).
These demonstrations were held to support fieldsports in response to a newly elected Labour Government that was hostile. The wrangling over fieldsports continued for many years resulting in the failed and discredited Hunting Act 2004. It remains our aim to see it repealed. We work tirelessly to promote and protect hunting and shooting interests, and our work for fishing includes charitable projects such as Fishing 4 Schools and Casting for Recovery UK & Ireland (both are run by our charity, The Countryside Alliance Foundation.)
Although country sports remain on the frontline of our campaigns, we are anything but single issue. Our campaigns on broadband, mobile phone signal, fly tipping, affordable housing, food & farming and rural business (through our Rural Oscars) show that we represent the interests of those who love the British countryside, regardless of who or where they are.
With around 100,000 members the Countryside Alliance promotes and protects rural life at Parliament, in the media and on the ground. Join us via our website, and please use this page to sign up to our weekly e-newsletter.

Broadcasting House is the headquarters of the BBC, in Portland Place and Langham Place, London. The first radio broadcast was made on 15 March 1932, and the building was officially opened two months later, on 15 May. The main building is in Art Deco style, with a facing of Portland stone over a steel frame. It is a Grade II* listed building and includes the BBC Radio Theatre, where music and speech programmes are recorded in front of a studio audience, and lobby that was used as a location for filming the 1998 BBC television series In the Red.As part of a major consolidation of the BBC's property portfolio in London, Broadcasting House has been extensively renovated and extended. This involved the demolition of post-war extensions on the eastern side of the building, replaced by a new wing completed in 2005. The wing was named the "John Peel Wing" in 2012, after the disc jockey. BBC London, BBC Arabic Television and BBC Persian Television are housed in the new wing, which also contains the reception area for BBC Radio 1 and BBC Radio 1Xtra (the studios themselves are in the new extension to the main building).The main building was refurbished, and an extension built to the rear. The radio stations BBC Radio 3, BBC Radio 4, BBC Radio 4 Extra and the BBC World Service transferred to refurbished studios within the building. The extension links the old building with the John Peel Wing, and includes a new combined newsroom for BBC News, with studios for the BBC News channel, BBC World News and other news programming. The move of news operations from BBC Television Centre completed in March 2013.

It used to be known as "Madame Tussaud's"; the apostrophe is no longer used. Madame Tussauds is a major tourist attraction in London, displaying waxworks of famous people.HistoryBackgroundMarie Tussaud was born as Marie Grosholtz in 1761 in Strasbourg, France. Her mother worked as a housekeeper for Dr. Philippe Curtius in Bern, Switzerland, who was a physician skilled in wax modelling. Curtius taught Tussaud the art of wax modelling.Tussaud created her first wax sculpture in 1777 of Voltaire. Other famous people whom she modelled at that time include Jean-Jacques Rousseau and Benjamin Franklin. During the French Revolution, she modelled many prominent victims. She claims that she would search through corpses to find the severed heads of executed citizens, from which she would make death masks. Her death masks were held up as revolutionary flags and paraded through the streets of Paris.
