Empire Kred

Contributed by Skip Bieber (e)skip7547  @skip7547

Great News!  Missions have been updated and some wonderful new features have been added.   Since no one else posted constructive information on the updates, I thought I’d take a crack at it.    Check back here often as I’ll be updating the blog as more and more features – (documented and undocumented) are discovered 🙂

There are several (six so far) major changes in this update include the additions of Private Missions;  Inverted Mission Awards; Mission restrictions by Join date; Network restrictions and a new missions at a glance toolbar.    Minor updates in this update  includes tighter restrictions on parameters such as Country, network and Interest.  

Oh, and in case you didn’t notice, the mission comments have been moved down and now appear AFTER the other missions display box.  

The first major change is the addition of Private Missions.  As I understand…

The bridge of superlatives – Alexandre III bridge (Paris)

The Pont Alexandre III is a deck arch bridge that spans the Seine in Paris. It connects the Champs-Élysées quarter with those of the Invalides and Eiffel Tower. The bridge is widely regarded as the most ornate, extravagant bridge in the city. It is classified as a French Monument historique.

History

The Beaux-Arts style bridge, with its exuberant Art Nouveau lamps, cherubs, nymphs and winged horses at either end, was built between 1896 and 1900. It is named after Tsar Alexander III, who had concluded the Franco-Russian Alliance in 1892. His son Nicholas II laid the foundation stone in October 1896. The style of the bridge reflects that of the Grand Palais, to which it leads on the right bank.

The construction of the bridge is a marvel of 19th century engineering, consisting of a 6 metres (20 ft) high single span steel arch. The design, by the architects Joseph…

The Église Saint-Augustin de Paris (Church of St. Augustine) is a Catholic church located at 46 boulevard Malesherbes in the 8th arrondissement of Paris.

History

Haussmann’s Plan

During the reign of Napoleon III in the 1850s and 60s Paris experienced a dramatic transformation under the direction of Georges-Eugène Haussmann. Haussmann cut many boulevards through the crowded, medieval city placing prominent public buildings at the boulevard ends to provide impressive vistas. The boulevard Malesherbes was laid out cutting northwest from La Madeleine. Saint-Augustin, close to the spot where Haussmann was born, was built to provide a counterpoint to the famous columns of La Madeleine at the other end of the…
