Isle of Man Manx people. Portal:Scotland. Portal:England. England ( /ˈɪŋɡlənd/ ) is a country that is part of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Its mainland is on the central and southern part of the island of Great Britain in the North Atlantic. England shares land borders with Scotland to the north and Wales to the west; and adjoins the Irish Sea to the north-west, the Celtic Sea to the south-west and the North Sea to the east. The English Channel separates it from continental Europe. In addition to the mainland, England includes over 100 smaller islands, including the Isles of Scilly and the Isle of Wight. England's population is about 51 million, around 84% of the United Kingdom. England has been settled by humans of various cultures for over 29,000 years but it takes its name from the Angles, one of the Germanic tribes who settled Great Britain during the 5th and 6th centuries.

Edmund "Eddie" Irvine, Jr. (b. 10 November 1965, Newtownards) is a former Formula One racing driver from Breezemount in Conlig. His professional racing career began in 1983 and he progressed to Formula Three racing in 1988, before moving on to Formula 3000 in 1989.

He got his break in the top of the Formula racing series after he started racing for Jordan in the Formula 3000 series in 1990, and was subsequently picked up by the Jordan Formula One team in 1993. His reputation steadily increased in Formula One, eventually leading Ferrari to sign him in 1996. Irvine is seen by many as a playboy in the mould of James Hunt, in contrast to the sport's modern stars, who are seen as staid and less flamboyant. He was a millionaire through property investment before reaching Formula One. He is now executive producer of a film being produced about Paddy Mayne and he has been linked to a future role at the Spyker MF1 Racing Formula One team.

Portail:Royaume-Uni. La famille Brontë est une famille littéraire anglaise du XIXe siècle, dont la notoriété, qui s'étend à tous ses membres, est essentiellement due à la fratrie formée par trois sœurs, poétesses et romancières, Charlotte (née le 21 avril 1816), Emily (née le 30 juillet 1818) et Anne (née le 17 janvier 1820). Elles publient des poèmes, puis des romans, d'abord sous des pseudonymes masculins. Leurs romans attirent immédiatement l'attention, pas toujours bienveillante, pour leur originalité et la passion qu'ils manifestent. Seul Jane Eyre, de Charlotte, connaît aussitôt le succès.

Mais Wuthering Heights (Les Hauts de Hurlevent) d'Emily, Agnes Grey puis The Tenant of Wildfell Hall (La Locataire de Wildfell Hall) d'Anne sont admis plus tard parmi les grandes œuvres de la littérature. Personne, parmi les ascendants, ne laisse présager les dons que les enfants manifestent dès leur plus jeune âge. Lire la suite Autres articles sélectionnés au sein du portail Royaume-Uni.
