ow to prevent workplace violence is now a common question. Workplace violence is any act or threat of physical violence, harassment, intimidation, or other threatening disruptive behavior that occurs at the work site. I thought how to prevent workplace violence would be a good subject to discuss giving you some warning signs to look out for.

The Deutsches Bergbau-Museum Bochum (DBM) is with his about 400,000 visitors per year one of the mostly visited museums of Germany.
It is one of the most important mining museums of the world and at the same time a famous research institute for Montanhistory.
The beginnings of the mining museum go back for the 1860s when the Westfälische Berggewerkschaftskasse (WBK) furnishes a constant exhibition of mountain-architectural utensils in Bochum which served primarily the mountain school lessons. In the end of the 1920s considerations were developed by representatives of the WBK and the city of Bochum for the foundation of a publicly accessible mining museum.
The foundation contract for the historical museum of the mining was closed on the 1st of April, 1930 between the city of Bochum and the WBK, as the first hall of the museum serves the old cattle hall of the closed Bochum slaughterhouse. On the area of the slaughterhouse a new building of the museum building with additional exhibition space was explained in 1935 according to draughts by Fritz Schupp and Heinrich Holzapfel.
In 1936 one began with the construction of the visitor mine.
In 1943 the not yet perfect museum new buildings were destroyed by allied air raids extensively, the visitor mine was altered for the air defence. Already in 1946 the museum was reopened with a small exhibition. In the 1950s the museum was anew built up and extended, in 1960 the distances of the view mine on a total length of 2,510 metres are developed.
A Drilling jumbo or drill jumbo is a rock drilling machine. Drilling jumbos are usually used in underground mining, if mining is done by drilling and blasting. They are also used in tunnelling, if rock hardeness prevents use of tunnelling machines.
A drilling jumbo consists of one, two or three rock drill carriages, sometimes a platform, which the miner stands on to load the holes with explosives, clear the face of the tunnel or else. The carriages are bolted onto the chassis, which supports also the miners cabin and of course the engine. Modern drilling jumbos are relatively large, there are however smaller ones for use in cramped conditions. Whereas modern jumbos usually fitted with rubber tyres and diesel powered, there are also exist variants with steel wheels, to ride on rails and even single carriaged sled-mounted ones. Electric power is also common, historical jumbos were powered by compressed air. Electricity and compressed air produce of course no exhaust gases, which is preferable if work is done in smaller tunnels where good ventilation is difficult.

This female rests and warms after a sleepless night and -30 degree freezing cold.
It is known that during these extreme conditions, the ducks will keep the tip of their bill in the water to prevent freezing.

I offer all of you, no matter what country you life in, what the colour of your skin or what faith you believe in, a toast. We are all the same in so many ways that we should not let small things prevent us from showing love to all. Happy New Year, love to everyone, everywhere, and above all, peace to all mankind.
The liquid is juice so for those that do not approve of alcohol, drink up.
I have now been on Flickr 8 years and more to come I hope. I have over 63 million views – thanks.
Another year, more great places to visit and pictures to take in 2016 and share. Next trip will be to Germany, Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Austria and Slovakia. I will then be doing a tour of Israel and Palestine. Thanks to all of you for your support and comments in 2015.
Boston MA – Massachusetts State House 04
Photo fromDaniel Mennerich
Massachusetts State House was built in 1798, the "new" State House is located across from the Boston Common on the top of Beacon Hill. The land was once owned by Massachusetts first elected governor, John Hancock. Charles Bullfinch, the leading architect of the day, designed the building.
The dome, originally made out of wood shingles, is now sheathed in copper and covered by 23 karat gold which was added to prevent leaks into the State House.
In the House of Representatives chambers hangs a wooden codfish which is called the Sacred Cod. The Sacred Cod signifies the importance of the fishing industry to the Commonwealth. At the top of the golden dome sits a wooden pinecone which symbolizes logging in Boston during the 18th century.
