The accounts of the money in this picture are from Europe and there are called Euros. The Euro is the second money of the biggest reservation as well as the second money most changed into the world after the dollar of the United States. The name the Euro officially was adopted on December 16, 1995.
The euro manages and administered by Central Europaean Bank (ECB) of Frankfurt and the Eurosystem (formed of the central banks of the countries of the euroarea). As an independent central bank, the ECB has the only authority to put the monetary policy. The Eurosystem takes part in the printing, to mint and the distribution of notes and coins in all the Member states and the operation of the systems of the payment of the euroarea.
The capital inside the European Union can be transferred in any quantity of a country to other. All the transferences of the European intraUnión in the euro talk each other like domestic deals and take the domestic transference expenses corresponding.
A monetary sign of the special euro (€) was designed after a public review had limited ten original offers to two. The European Commission of that time chose the design created by the Belgian Alain Billiet.
In whole, more than 150 million persons in Africa use a money fixed for the euro, 25 million persons out of the euroarea in Europe and more 500,000 persons to Pacific islands.
The most obvious advantage of adopting a common currency must remove the cost of changing the money, theoretically allowing to business and individuals to complete commerce earlier slightly profitable.
The absence of different currencies also removes risks of the exchange rate. The risk of the movement of the unexpected exchange rate has always added an additional risk or suspense for companies or individuals who invest or trade out of their own monetary areas.
The introduction of the euro has led to the extensive discussion on his possible effect in the inflation. In the short term, there was an impression extended in the population of the euroarea that the introduction of the euro had taken to a prices increase, but this impression wasn’t confirmed by general indexes of the inflation and other studies.
Thank you for sharing this picture with your friends !

Camping in Cascadia provides a wealth of photo opportunities.
Aiming for a silkscreen effect, I’ve averaged out the detail of the layers.

Saltaire is a Victorian model (the ideal type, not the miniature type) village near Bradford , West Yorkshire. It sits on the River Aire and the Leeds and Liverpool Canal and is a UNESCO-designated World Heritage Site.
Saltaire was founded in 1851 by Sir Titus Salt, a leading industrialist in the Yorkshire woollen industry. Salt moved his business (five separate mills) from Bradford to this site near Shipley to arrange his workers and to site his large textile mill by the Leeds and Liverpool Canal and the railway.
Salt opened the mill in 1853 – then the largest industrial building in the world by total floor area. This was followed by neat stone houses for his workers (much better than the slums of Bradford), wash-houses with tap water, bath-houses, a hospital and an institute for recreation and education, with a library, a reading room, a concert hall, billiard room, science laboratory and a gymnasium.
The village had a school for the children of the workers, almshouses, allotments, a park and a boathouse. Because of this combination of houses, employment and social services the original town is often seen as an important development in the history of 19th century urban planning.
Salt’s motives in building Saltaire remain obscure. They seem to have been a mixture of sound economics, Christian duty, and a desire to have effective control over his workforce. There were economic reasons for moving out of Bradford, and the village did provide him with an amenable, handpicked workforce. Yet Salt was deeply religious and sincerely believed that, by creating an environment where people could lead healthy, virtuous, godly lives, he was doing God’s work. Perhaps, also, diffident and inarticulate as he was, the village may have been a way of demonstrating the extent of his wealth and power. Lastly, he may also have seen it as a means of establishing an industrial dynasty to match the landed estates of his Bradford contemporaries. However, Saltaire provided no real solution to the relationship between employer and worker. Its small size, healthy site, and comparative isolation provided an escape rather than an answer to the problems of urban industrial society
The mill was operational until 1986, when it finally closed due to the pressures of cheap imports from overseas.
The following year, the mill was renovated and re-opened as a gallery and retail complex, concentrating on Yorkshire-artist David Hockney.
