The Globe Theatre

The original Globe Theatre (notice the fancy spelling, Americans!) in London was built by ‘s playing company, a group of actors called “the Lord Chamberlain’s men”, after their first sponsor, the Lord Chamberlain, in 1599. canada goose coats (The Lord Chamberlain is one of the chief officers of the royal household in the UK.) was the place to go in Elizabethan England. Prior to ‘s wonderful plays, most popular entertainment was blood sports of some kind: bear baiting, bare fisted boxing, cock fighting, setting terriers on rats; all accompanied by gambling. The Globe theatre was an experiment of sorts: it brought comedy, drama, and tragedy to the masses. The Globe theatre canada goose store was one of the original playhouses: a building meant cheap Canada Goose for the express purpose of putting on Canada Goose Online plays. Before that, plays were mostly performed at court, before the Queen. They weren’t really plays, often, but a series of vignettes Canada Goose Jackets or tableau. Canada Goose online The popular canada goose uk shop plays, the plays ordinary people were familiar with, were mostly morality cheap canada goose uk plays performed around Christmas time by amateur mummers, performed in someone’s freezing, drafty barn, or occasionally the church.

The original owners of the Globe theater were: was a round, buy canada goose jacket open canada goose outlet sale air ampitheatre. In the Globe Theatre, the Canada Goose Outlet cheap seats weren’t seats at all, but standing room on canada goose the open air floor of the arena. A canada goose black friday sale wooden gallery ran all around the Globe in a circle, with the stage at one end canada goose coats on sale of a long oval. The gallery seats were “boxes”, and they were enclosed by a balcony and roofed from exposure to the weather. The rich people saw the plays from there.

The original canada goose clearance theatre was located in Maiden Lane (which is now Park Street, Southwark), in canadian goose jacket London, England.

This lovely theatre showed the very first performance of several of Shakespeare’s plays, including “Henry V “, and “Henry the Eighth “. The globe Theatre might have been the origin of “theatre in the round”, almost canada goose uk outlet unlike uk canada goose “theatre in the round”, where the audience surrounds the canada goose uk black friday stage completely, the stage Canada Goose sale end of the oval at the canada goose clearance sale Globe Theatre was enclosed and not exposed to the public from the back of the stage.

On June 13, 1613, the Globe Theatre went up in flames. A cannon fired during a performance of Henry the canada goose factory sale Eighth set the wooden beams and thatching above the stage on fire. No one was hurt, except for a man whose breeches were on fire: a friend doused him with a bottle of beer, putting out his breeches with no casualties. It might be fortunate that the design of the Globe Theatre was open air.

The Globe was rebuilt in the following year and had a great run, very successful and Canada Goose Coats On Sale lucrative for its owners, for many years, until 1644, when the Puritans and Oliver Cromwell shut it down.

The building is entirely English oak no structural steel was used, and put together with mortise and tenon joinery, as in Elizabethan times. I’m so thrilled you live near there and watched it being built. I didn’t know it was re built by an American. Did you know our American Smithsonian Institute in Washington, DC, was begun by a gift from a Britisher name Smithson.

Head trauma is nothing to be taken lightly

The death of actress Natasha Richardson is tragic. A beautiful, vital 45 year old goes for a ski lesson and falls. She gets up, declines medical care and goes back to her hotel. From there, the story takes a terrible turn. She becomes ill, and is transported to one hospital, then another and then finally Canada Goose online to a third hospital near her home, where she dies two days later from brain injuries caused by an epidural hematoma. Her family, friends and fans are shocked. How can something as innocent as a ski fall kill you? Because, neurologists say, the brain, although complex, is a delicate organ. It very vulnerable and it needs to be taken seriously. And even a bump on the head can take its toll. Unfortunately, I know this all too well.

Thirteen years ago, my husband, daughter and I were in a terrible car accident on the Florida Turnpike. On our way to Orlando, our vehicle was hit by a driver who had fallen asleep at the wheel. Although we all had our seat belts on, our car swerved and hit a bridge embankment. My husband head went out the side window, hitting the windshield and the concrete. When EMS workers got to us, it looked as if a battle had taken place: burning cars, debris. And because my husband had a major slice to his head, blood was everywhere. I was not hurt, and my daughter had a minor cut from flying glass. They loaded us into ambulances and took us to two different hospitals, my husband headed for the local trauma unit. He stayed two days in Canada Goose Parka the hospital. And although the whole canadian goose jacket thing was terribly traumatic, we left Florida three days later, with my husband behind the wheel of a rental car.

Because he felt fine and there seemed to be no urgency to canada goose his injuries, my husband went back to work and made an appointment with his doctor to have a CT scan two months later. When he got off the table, the radiologist asked him to sit down canada goose coats and immediately called a neurologist. As the doctor viewed the images, his face turned pale and he asked my husband how long had it been since he was in the accident. My hubby shrugged and said, couple of months. The physician then told him not to move he was going to schedule surgery canada goose factory sale immediately. It seemed my husband uk canada goose had developed a subdural hematoma that covered his entire brain. According to it usually formed from head trauma that causes the brain to be shaken severely. Many children who suffer from shaken baby syndrome have these type of injuries. And unlike epidural hematomas, which bleed in the brain fairly quickly, my husband injury developed slowly, causing a massive bruise to form. One false move could have given him a stroke, or caused permanent brain damage.

Although my husband made it through brain surgery without incident, there is a lesson Canada Goose Coats On Sale here. Never take a head injury for granted. When doctors looked at his scans in the ER in Florida, they obviously did not see the bruising that later formed over his brain. Because the brain is loaded with large and small blood vessels, head injuries can cause all sorts of serious problems. Studies have shown that athletes who suffer even minor concussions can develop neurological problems later in life. The brain is nothing to be messed with.

Ironically, March is Brain Injury Awareness Month. And although brain injuries are not as common as, say, broken bones, they do happen and many have serious consequences. They need to be treated immediately. In this story, my husband got treated, before suffering brain damage. He was fortunate. God bless her, but Ms. Richardson was not.

Have you ever faced head trauma? Know someone who has? What happened? We like to hear about it.

Then the Doc said you good to go. After that, it got worse by the day! Now I a year out and totally dependent on my husband. If you hit your head and Doctors don see outside damage but you feel you aren right, demand help. My doctor and ER doc both didn bother cause we were cash pay. My reg doctor did the same. I asked for a reference of a neurologist and he said he didn know anyone. It too late now. I am getting more concentration but have a small attention span and all my memories are gone from raising my Son to what I did five minutes ago.
