Large-scale sporting, cultural and festive events are increasing in number; however, no two such events are quite the same. Exceptional events generate major flows of visitors and often require material back-up on a very large scale. They also involve very specific transport and logistics requirements. Security is another major consideration that must be taken into account when studying transportation for such events.The Round Table examined such events in Europe and the rest of the world, and noted that setting ambitious targets contributes to the quality of the event. Almost every experience

Large international events like the Olympic Games put cities on the world map. CityEvents, place selling in a Media Age addresses the question how cities have been raising their profile internationally by hosting large international events throughout the twentieth century. It explores this question by introducing the CityEvent model. This model allows for the study of large international events from a threefold perspective, analytically integrating the roles of the media, host cities and event owners with each other.

Apocalypse Prophesied, describes God's 7,000-year plan for this earth, as supported by 1,000 Bible references. This plan includes 6,000 years of human history and 1,000 years of prophetic events yet to take place. With its many verses it has become like a miniature Bible that explains the Creator's plan for humanity and the reasons why we exist. The 10th chapter of this book focuses on the cuckoo clock analogy. It is a summary explanation of special historic events that correspond to parallel events that will take place during the 7 years of the Great Tribulation. We have a saying that history

What if the Bible is not the "tales of the old" but an almanac of mankind for events past, present and yet to come? Let's illustrate our thesis, then. Let's pick three random years within the 20th century - say, 1982, 1992 and 1993. What happened on earth in 1992 that made the news? 1992 is the first year since 1922 without the Soviet Union and the Cold War, as at the end of 1991
