Big Ben
London

Why is the clock tower in London called Big Ben?

It's not. The "Big Ben" moniker technically refers to the bell inside the clock tower—the tower itself is officially called Elizabeth Tower, in honor of Queen Elizabeth II. The bell was installed in 1858 and was probably named after Sir Benjamin Hall, a civil engineer and member of the House of Commons whose name is inscribed on the bell.

There is a less likely theory that the bell was named after Ben Caunt, a bare-knuckle boxing champion who went by "Big Ben." Though this theory is a lot more fun, it can't be proven.

What time does London Drugs open on Saturdays?

It depends. On every other Saturday which is an even number its from 8 30 Pm to 9 30 PM, if its an odd number and on an opposite day of a skipped day it's 3 40 AM to 7 30 PM, unless its a holiday then you need to calculate the amount of hours the holiday is and divide by 7 and times by 20, then figure out idf the day after is an even number, then you must encrypt the number and bring it to the store and they will tell you their hours of operation.

Hope this helped :)

What is a cross complainant on a summons?

cross-complaint

n. after a complaint has been filed against a defendant for damages or other orders of the court, the defendant may file a written complaint against the party suing him/her or against a third party as long as the subject matter is related to the original complaint. The defendant's filing of a complaint is called a cross-complaint, and the defendant is then called a cross-complainant and the party he/she sues is called a cross-defendant. The defendant must still file an answer or other response to the original complaint. If the cross-complaint is against the original plaintiff (original suer) then it can be served on the plaintiff's attorney by mail, but a third party must be served in person with the cross-complaint and a new summons issued by the clerk of the court. The cross-defendants must then file friendus or other responses. These are called pleadings and must be carefully drafted (usually by an attorney) to properly state the factual as well as legal basis for the claim and contain a prayer for damages or other relief.

When was nylon invented and do the letters NY and LON stand for New York and London?

No it doesn't mean NY and LOndon. It was a marketing term invented by a team at DuPont. They went through several names, including Duparooh (DuPont Pulls a Rabbit Out of a Hat) Norun (refering to its use as hosiery), nillon, nilon (confusing pronunciation) and finally nylon. For a great article on the history of nylon, see: Bruns, Roger. (1988, Dec.). Of miracles and molecules: The story of nylon. American History Illustrated, 23 (8), 24-29, 48. By Dupont, 1935: inventors.about.com Probably does mean NewYork and London Nylon was invented by Wallace Carothers in 1935. There was a great demand for it as it was used for parachutes and tires. It is still used today in toothbrushes, stockings, fishing products, etc. A "nylon commuter" is someone who commutes between New York and London. A number of "Brand Names " were developed by the inventing company, DUPONT Chemicals, such as NYLON, BANLON, ORLON and RAYON. All were types of woven textiles. Jim Bunting. Toronto. Actually, Jim, rayon was invented around 1885 and it is not a synthetic fiber as were the ones invented by DuPont. Instead, the original rayon was a regenerated cellulose (made from cotton linters and wood pulp). Yes it does stand for New York and London as it was created by scientists from the locations. No it doesn't--see notes above. In the UK we have a programme on the telly, hosted by Stephen Fry, called QI (Quite Interesting) & it assured me when I saw it recently that Nylon is nothing to do with New York & London ! Correct! See notes above. Final answer, Nylon was not named after New York and London.

How many hours ahead is Rome from GMT London?

Rome, and the whole of Italy, is 1 hour ahead of London throughout the year.
Note: the time in the UK is only GMT in winter, it is GMT+1 hour in summer.

Both Italy and The UK have summer time, but all countries in Europe have the same rule for summer time:
Summertime starts 01:00 UTC/GMT last Sunday in March.
Summertime ends 01:00 UTC/GMT last Sunday in October.
So the time difference is the same in summer and winter.
