Vom maroden Hafen zur glitzernden Nebencity: die London Docklands
Eine Bilanz nach drei Jahrzehnten Strukturwandel

wirtschaftliche Entscheidung gestellt, die älteren Hafenbereiche stillzulegen oder darauf zu drängen, dass die Liegeplätze und seewärtigen Zufahrten den zunehmenden Größen der neuen Schiffsgenerationen angepasst wurden. Letzteres bedeutete die Ausbaggerung von Fahrrinnen, die Schaffung seeschifftiefer Kaianlagen und, im Falle tideunabhängiger Hafenbecken, die Verbreiterung der Schleusenzufahrten ( Harms 2002 : 78). Da die Nutzen-Kosten-Relation solcher Investitionen höchst umstritten war, wurde stattdessen häufig dem Ausbau sog. Vorhäfen (z. B. Tilbury für London) der Vorzug

Data on thunderstorms originate from dispatches METAR for three airport stations: London Gatwick, Warsaw Okęcie and Moscow Sheremetyevo. These cities represent the various types of climate: warm temperate marine, transitional and continental. Thunderstorms mostly occurred in Warsaw - 207 (Moscow - 174, London - 71). The maximum of thunderstorms frequency, in the yearly course, in all towns occurred in July (Warsaw - 11,8; Moscow - 13,4; London - 5,0). Thunderstorms predominantly started at 13:30 in London, 17:00 in Warsaw, 18:00 in Moscow (13:30 means period 13:01-13:30, 17:00 means period 16:31-17:00 etc.). Thunderstorms most often ended at 13:30 in London, 17:00 in Warsaw, 20:30 in Moscow. There were dominated, at all stations, brief thunderstorms, which lasted for 30 minutes.

Au pairs’ perceptions of life in the global city

strategies. The United Kingdom has one of the least regulated, but most popular, au pair schemes and the draw of London is a part of this popularity. No numbers are available, as au pairs’ movements and posts are not measured or registered, but estimates suggest that there are perhaps 90,000 au pairs in Britain at any one time ( Smith, 2008 ).

Instead, au pairs are almost exclusively EU nationals who have the right to live and work in the United
