Time Zone
A TIME ZONE is a region of the globe that observes a uniform standard time for legal , commercial , and social purposes. Time
Time
zones tend to follow the boundaries of countries and their subdivisions because it is convenient for areas in close commercial or other communication to keep the same time . Most of the time zones on land are offset from Coordinated Universal Time
Time
(UTC) by a whole number of hours ( UTC−12 to UTC+14), but a few zones are offset by 30 or 45 minutes (e.g. Newfoundland Standard Time is UTC−03:30, Nepal
Nepal
Standard Time
Time
is UTC+05:45, and Indian Standard Time
Time
is UTC+05:30). Some higher latitude and temperate zone countries use daylight saving time for part of the year, typically by adjusting local clock time by an hour. Many land time zones are skewed toward the west of the corresponding nautical time zones

Globalization And World Cities Research Network
The GLOBALIZATION AND WORLD CITIES RESEARCH NETWORK, commonly abbreviated to GAWC, is a think tank that studies the relationships between world cities in the context of globalization . It is based in the geography department of Loughborough University in England
England
. GaWC was founded by Peter J. Taylor in 1998, Together with Jon Beaverstock and Richard G. Smith , they create the GaWC's bi-annual categorization of world cities into "Alpha", "Beta" and "Gamma" tiers, based upon their international connectedness. The GaWC examines cities worldwide to narrow them down to a roster of 307 world cities, then ranks these based on their connectivity through four "advanced producer services": accountancy, advertising, banking/finance, and law. The GaWC inventory ranks city economics more heavily than political or cultural factors

Old High German
OLD HIGH GERMAN (OHG, German : Althochdeutsch, German abbr. Ahd.) is the earliest stage of the German language
German language
, conventionally covering the period from around 700 to 1050. Coherent written texts do not appear until the second half of the 8th century , and some treat the period before 750 as "prehistoric" and date the start of Old High German proper to 750 for this reason. There are, however, a number of Elder Futhark inscriptions dating to the 6th century (notably the Pforzen buckle ), as well as single words and many names found in Latin

texts predating the 8th century

Prince-elector
The PRINCE-ELECTORS (or simply ELECTORS) of the Holy Roman Empire (German : Kurfürst ( listen (help ·info )), pl. Kurfürsten, Czech : Kurfiřt, Latin : Princeps Elector) were the members of the electoral college of the Holy Roman Empire. From the 13th century onwards, the Prince-Electors had the privilege of electing the King of the Romans , who would be crowned by the Pope as Holy Roman Emperor. Charles V was the last to be a crowned Emperor (elected 1519, crowned 1530); his successors were elected Emperors directly by the electoral college, each being titled "Elected Emperor of the Romans" (German : erwählter Römischer Kaiser; Latin : electus Romanorum imperator). In practice, all but one Emperor (Charles VII from the House of Wittelsbach ) from 1440 onwards came from the Austrian House of Habsburg

Monarchy
A MONARCHY is a form of government in which a group, generally a family representing a dynasty (aristocracy ), embodies the country's national identity and its head, the monarch , exercises the role of sovereignty. The actual power of the monarch may vary from purely symbolic (crowned republic ), to partial and restricted (constitutional monarchy ), to completely autocratic (absolute monarchy ). Traditionally the monarch's post is inherited and lasts until death or abdication. In contrast, elective monarchies require the monarch to be elected. Both types have further variations as there are widely divergent structures and traditions defining monarchy. For example, in some elected monarchies only pedigrees are taken into account for eligibility of the next ruler, whereas many hereditary monarchies impose requirements regarding the religion, age, gender, mental capacity, etc

Old High German
and into Early New High German . High German is defined as those varieties of German which were affected by the Second Sound Shift ; the Middle Low German and Middle Dutch languages spoken to the North and North West, which did not participate in this sound change , are not part of MHG. While there is no standard MHG, the prestige of the Hohenstaufen court gave rise in the late 12th century to a supra-regional literary language (mittelhochdeutsche Dichtersprache) based on Swabian , an Alemannic dialect

Benedictine Order
The ORDER OF SAINT BENEDICT (OSB; Latin
Latin
: Ordo Sancti Benedicti), also known – in reference to the colour of its members' habits – as the BLACK MONKS, is a Catholic religious order of independent monastic communities that observe the Rule of Saint Benedict . Each community (monastery , priory or abbey ) within the order maintains its own autonomy, while the order itself represents their mutual interests. The terms "Order of Saint Benedict" and "Benedictine Order" are, however, also used to refer to all Benedictine communities collectively, sometimes giving the incorrect impression that there exists a generalate or motherhouse with jurisdiction over them. Internationally, the order is governed by the Benedictine Confederation , a body, established in 1883 by Pope Leo XIII
