Fabrgé eggs are any one of the thousands of jeweled eggs made by the House of Fabrgé from 1885 through till 1917. The majority of the eggs were miniature ones that were popular at Eastertide.

 The most famous eggs produced by the House of Fabrgé, was the large ones made for Alexander lll and Nicholas ll of Russia. Of the fifty eggs that were made forty two still survive. A further two eggs were planned to be delivered, the constellation and Karelian Birch eggs in 1918, but as Nicholas and his family were assassinated that year, so they were never displayed.

 In 1885, Tsar Alexander III commissioned the House of Fabrgé to make an Easter egg for his wife, The Empress Maria Fedorovna. It’s “shell” was enameled on gold to represent a normal hen’s egg. It opens to reveal a gold yolk, which in turn opens to produce a gold chicken that also opens to reveal a replica of the imperial crown.

 Seven large eggs were made for the Kelch family of Moscow.

 The eggs where made from precious metals or hard stones decorated with combinations of enamel and gem stones. The term “Fabrgé egg” has become a symbol of luxury, and the eggs are regarded as masterpieces of the Jeweler’s art.

Monday saw Japan battle to prevent a nuclear meltdown at three of it’s nuclear reactors, the reactors were crippled by Friday’s earthquake.

 The country is in the grip of the worst nuclear accident since Chernobyl. Chernobyl was a nuclear accident that occurred on 26th April in 1986 in Ukraine. One of the worst devastated areas is Japans north-east which was also rocked by 250 aftershocks.

Fears have been growing about the Fukushima nuclear complex, 400km north of the country’s capital Tokyo. As seawater was pumped into the third nuclear reactor in a desperate attempt to try to cool the dangerously hot reactor.

This is not the first time that they have had to use seawater. It was used to cool the plant’s 40 year old first reactor, but because of the tsunami, the reactor severely overheated ant the roof blow up. The plant is specially engineered so that in an emergency the building would blow up away from the reactor so that the reactor would suffer minimal damage.

The second reactor was due to be cooled in the same way as the first reactor. Due to the problems, technicians were forced to open valves at the third reactor allowing small amounts of radioactive vapour to escape.

Vauxhall City Farm is home to pigs, chickens, cows, sheep, ferrets, turkeys, rabbits, ducks, guinea pigs, horses, alpacas and a donkey named Jako. Vauxhall City Farm runs a number of farmyard projects and volunteer programmes and a busy riding programme were visitors get the chance to have a ride on the farms first donkey Jako! They also has an ecology garden. All of the activies  help to support the farm as it manly run by volunteers and charity workers. The farm was originally set up by the people that lived in the surrounding area and is largely supported by the local community. The farm also hosts a small animal enclosure where the public can get up close with some of there smaller animals.

Ireland double dips

Ireland’s financial troubles are set to take another setback as its economy goes into a second recession.

Ireland, which was once named the Celtic tiger, because of its boom in industry, its pioneering education system, and its technology resources. The country is now in need of an emergency loan from the European Union (EU) and the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

The total amount announced by Irish Prime Minister Brian Cowen totalled 90 billion Euros which is about £72 Billion and $124 Billion.

It was agreed that Ireland would present a crisis plan that would cover the next four years.  Ireland got itself into trouble because of house values falling by 50% – 60%.

As Ireland prepares to ask for a bail out from the EU, the British taxpayers may have to foot a £7 billion – £9 billion loan. This will leave the average home with an increase of about £300 in taxes.
