Cabinet Office accomplished today what the Commonwealth of Massachusetts set out unsuccessfully to achieve ten years ago: Compliance with any of the existing versions of OOXML, the competing document format championed by Microsoft, is neither required nor relevant.
For this list, we are looking at marketplace firsts and centers of cultural and historical significance. So, while you stand in line for whatever holiday gifts your friends and family just have to have, enjoy this look at places you may have shopped in during the near and distant past.
Though not the first mall with an amusement park—that distinction belongs to the Old Chicago Mall but it failed after only five years of existence —the West Edmonton Mall set the tone for all mega malls to come. But what lands the West Edmonton Mall on our list are the side attractions including Galaxyland with its seven thrill rides, World Water park, and the Sea Life Caverns.
With all there is to do and see is it any wonder that the mall counts Set near the midpoint between the powerful Islamic cities of Damascus and Aleppo in the west and Samarkand 3 on our list and Bokhara in the east, Isfahan and its bazaar a permanently enclosed marketplace made it a key place for the diffusion of ideas and goods throughout the Muslim world.
The Bazaar of Isfahan is widely regarded as the best-preserved example of a bazaar complex in the Muslim world today. The bazaar, and the city that grew around its trade, was so vital that two dynasties, the Seljuk and the Safavidestablished their capitals here.
The bazaar itself is just over a mile long of vaulted ceilings sheltering hundreds of merchants. Probably lounging around their houses bored out of their minds.
Designed by Austrian immigrant Victor Gruen inthe Southdale mall is the oldest fully enclosed, climate-controlled mall in America. What he proposed was a building that would serve as a communial gathering place where people could talk, shop, and leisurely spend a few hours sipping coffee or tea.
Ultimately, his plan for the Southdale Mall complex included a lake, schools, apartments, medical buildings and parks. Now, instead of going to small stores downtown, people could sit in a food court and watch preteens prance about with no real place to go.
Petersburg, Russia Where do you go in Russia if you want to buy and sell goods? These arcades were semi-open air and based on the older bazaars of the Islamic world. Original construction on The Great Gostiny Dvor began in and it has seen continual remodeling through the 20th Century so that by the start of the 20th Century there were close to shops.
What that will tell them is uncertain, but with the plethora of strip malls, one thing is certain: We loved to shop.
The first strip mall was the Country Club Plaza. Meaning, the Plaza was the first shopping center designed to accommodate people arriving by car. Nichols, chose a plot of land that would have easy access to a major parkway, but at the time there was nothing but a day school and pig farms in the area.
But he had a vision and when the Plaza opened in it was an immediate success. So, Apollodorus built into and onto the hillside by flattening and terracing the land.
The result was a market that stood, in some places, six stories tall. The upper floors contained apartments and warehouses and were probably used as the administrative offices for the market.
In total, there were over tabernea along the lower sections and in the interior vault covered halls. The name conjures up images of bearded Norsemen wearing horned helms and wielding broad axes ready to plunder the next village.
Established in CE by Swedish Vikings,—called the Varangians, and eventually the Rus—Staraya Ladoga was one of the most significant trading and market centers in Eastern Europe for nearly five hundred years.
The village linked Scandinavia with Constantinople and Baghdad along the Varangian trade route to the Greeks and the Volga route respectively.
The market and outpost were so significant that the Varangian leader Rurik established his capital in Ladoga in Rurik and his successors eventually established the Kievian Rus empire, a dynasty that would eventually come to rule the Grand Duchy of Moscow and Tsardom of Russia.
Because of this, Ladoga is often called the first capital of Russia. And it is on the Grand Canal that we find the 5 entry on our list.

But, where there are merchants and wealth there are also foreign traders and ships. In fact, they served the opposite purpose; they did not make goods, but rather served as a trading house for them.
For centuries European and American governments clamored to get into trade agreements with China. However, the Chinese rulers saw European and eventually American goods as inferior to the goods made in China and refused to trade.
Chinese leaders also feared foreign influences on Chinese society and politics so they closed ports and heavily restricted maritime activities. Bythere were eight factories but they would quickly number thirteen as more countries tried to get into the Chinese market.New Immigration Minister announced following Federal Cabinet reshuffle.
Scott Morrison will no longer be the Federal Minister for Immigration after being assigned to a new portfolio following a significant shake-up of the Federal Government’s Cabinet earlier this week. As you can imagine, more people are reading The Jerusalem Post than ever before. Nevertheless, traditional business models are no longer sustainable and high-quality publications, like ours, are.
10 Downing Street, the locale of British prime ministers since , vies with the White House as being the most important political building anywhere in the world in the modern era.
The Cabinet no longer has a great policymaking function but is simply a ratification body, however, it does decide priorities i.e.
which policies should be passed through Parliament. It must be said, however, that though Cabinet Government is an institution in decline, it still has the power to keep a Prime Minister in office and is clearly a 5/5(1).

The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari makes use of expressionist architecture and expresses interior reality through exterior means with its use of extreme distortion in its production design. The film, as a result, presents us with a dark and twisted world with distorted shapes and angles.
