Norwich, Ontario
The Township of Norwich is a municipality located in Oxford County in Southwestern Ontario, Canada. At the centre of the Township of Norwich is the Town of Norwich. The preferred pronunciation of the town name is , which differs from the pronunciation used for the city of Norwich, England.

Oriel Chambers, Kingston Upon Hull
Oriel Chambers is a Grade II listed building which, since 2006, has housed the Wilberforce Institute for the study of Slavery and Emancipation. It is located in the city of Kingston upon Hull, in the East Riding of Yorkshire, England. History Background to the building Built in 1879 to the designs of William Botterill and Son. It is a brick building with tile and terracotta detail, with dormers and shaped gables. It takes its name from the oriel window on the first floor, the window that stands proud of the facade. The site of Oriel Chambers lies within a much older tenement on the east side of the High Street, in the heart of the historic core of the Old Town of Hull. This particular plot of land was held by Robert de Dripole in 1293. In 1339 the property was split into two, and a deed of that year records a Basement in which a widow lived, with a 9 feet wide passageway or "free entry" to the west of the said Basement. In the 1347 rental, a tenement was held by John Lambe ...

Oriel Chambers
Oriel Chambers is an office building located on Water Street near the town hall in Liverpool, England. It was the world's first building featuring a metal framed glass curtain wall, which has since become a defining feature of skyscrapers around the world. Designed by architect Peter Ellis and built in 1864, it has been grade I listed due to its outstanding importance. History Ellis won the commission for Oriel Chambers by competition ''The delicacy of the ironwork in the plate-glass oriel windows and the curtain walling at the back with the vertical supports retracted yet visible from outside is almost unbelievably ahead of its time.'' Architect Adam Caruso (born 1962) describes Oriel Chambers in near poetic words: ''Its membranous windows are almost an expression of the open space of the interior pressing out into the space of the street.'' Today Today the building looks a little different, combining its period architecture with a 1950s extension added after German aeri ...

Baron Oriel
Baron is a rank of nobility or title of honour, often hereditary, in various European countries, either current or historical. The female equivalent is baroness. Typically, the title denotes an aristocrat who ranks higher than a lord or knight, but lower than a viscount or count. Often, barons hold their fief – their lands and income – directly from the monarch. Barons are less often the vassals of other nobles. In many kingdoms, they were entitled to wear a smaller form of a crown called a ''coronet''. The term originates from the Latin term , via Old French. The use of the title ''baron'' came to England via the Norman Conquest of 1066, then the Normans brought the title to Scotland and Italy. It later spread to Scandinavia and Slavic lands. Etymology The word ''baron'' comes from the Old French , from a Late Latin "man; servant, soldier, mercenary" (so used in Salic law; Alemannic law has in the same sense). The scholar Isidore of Seville in the 7th century thoug ...

Oriel Window
An oriel window is a form of bay window which protrudes from the main wall of a building but does not reach to the ground. Supported by corbels, brackets, or similar cantilevers, an oriel window is most commonly found projecting from an upper floor but is also sometimes used on the ground floor. Oriel windows are seen in Arab architecture in the form of mashrabiya and in Turkish are known as ''şahnişin'' or ''cumba''. In Islamic culture, these windows and balconies project from the street-front of a house, providing an area in which women could peer out and see the activities below while remaining invisible. Origins According to the ''Oxford English Dictionary'', the term ''oriel'' is derived from Anglo-Norman ' and Late Latin ', both meaning "gallery" or "porch", perhaps from Classical Latin ' ("curtain"). * Oriel College, Oxford, took its name from a balcony or oriel window forming a feature of a building which occupied the site the college now stands on. * Oriel Ch ...

Oriel Wind Farm
Oriel Wind Farm is a proposed offshore wind farm in the northwestern Irish Sea. The project is associated with Oriel Windfarm Limited, a privately owned Irish renewable energy company. According to a 2007 press release, the proposed farm is due to be located near Clogherhead, approximately southeast of Dundalk, County Louth, and approximately northeast of Drogheda. The farm takes its name from the ancient Kingdom of Oriel.

These included geotechnical assessments of the area and surveys of birds flying above the site. Construction In 2007, the proposed developers suggested that if permission was obtained, "construction could commence as early as Autumn 2009". However, as of 2014, the project was on hold pending talks between the Irish and UK governments on exporting the electricity to the UK. In July 2015, t ...

Oriel (scripting Language)
Oriel is a scripting language released with the ''Power Tools'' series of instructional books written by the LeBlond Group. Described in its documentation as a "graphics-based batch language", it was originally designed for Microsoft Windows 3.0 and released with the book ''Windows 3 Power Tools'' in 1991.COMPUTE! Issue 134 - http://www.atarimagazines.com/compute/issue134/143_Windows_3_Power_Tool.php However, versions of the language were also bundled with ''Windows 3.1 Power Tools'' in 1992 and ''Windows NT Power Tools'' in 1994.

The former was the Oriel interpreter, which when invoked would prompt the user to choose a script file for execution. The latter gave the user the ability to create custom executables by bundling a script within a copy of the interpreter. In this way, an Oriel program could be distributed and run in the same way as any other Wi ...
