During Elizabeth’s reign, England expanded trade overseas and the merchant community grew. Private shipbuilding boomed and navigational advances made long sea voyages safer. England’s chief commodity was woolen cloth, traded mostly at the Dutch port of Antwerp for finished goods and such luxuries as French wines. Cloth exports grew over the course of the reign, but suffered from competition from finer Spanish products and from Antwerp’s decline after its harbor silted up and became impassable by the mid-1560s. In the 1560s financier Sir Thomas Gresham founded the Royal Exchange to help merchants find secure markets for their goods.

This small room is much reduced from its seventeenth-century dimensions; then it was the King’s Audience Chamber. Here stood the King’s chair of state until the reign of George III. Wyatville reduced it in size and turned it into an ante-room. Today it marks the approximate divide between that part of the Castle remodeled in the reign of George IV to make larger and grander reception rooms, and Charles II’s smaller State Apartments. The latter still retain their old layout and proportions and some of their seventeenth-century character and architectural detail, though Wyatville replaced all except three of Verrio’s painted ceilings on the grounds that they were irreparably decayed.
The room has recently been restored and hung with green damask. The carved oak cornice decorated with acanthus leaves alone survives from Grinling Gibbons’ work for Charles II.
The Lady Diana Frances Spencer (Diana Frances Mountbatten-Windsor, née Spencer) (1 July 1961–31 August 1997) was the first wife of Charles, Prince of Wales. From her marriage in 1981 to her divorce in 1996 she was styled Her Royal Highness The Princess of Wales. After her divorce in 1996, Diana ceased to be a Royal Highness and The Princess of Wales and instead was styled Diana, Princess of Wales. She was often called Princess Diana by the media and the public, but this was incorrect both during and after her marriage, as she was only ever a Princess by marriage, not by birth.'

The Processor(picture Intel Pentium 4 Willamette 1.8 GHz Socket 423 400 MHz)
One of the smallest parts of the computer but the one that gets most of the attention, the processor is often thought of as the "brain" of the computer. An extremely sophisticated piece of miniaturized electronics, the processor (often called the CPU or Central Processing Unit) is at the bottom of all tasks the PC performs. The processor reads instructions (commands) from memory that tell it what it needs to do to accomplish the work that the user wants, and then executes them.
The processor (really a short form for microprocessor) is the central component of the PC. The processor performs all work that you do on your computer directly or indirectly. The processor plays a significant role in the following important aspects of your computer system:

Broadcasting, Radio and Television, primary means by which information and entertainment are delivered to the public in virtually every nation around the world. The term broadcasting refers to the airborne transmission of electromagnetic audio signals (radio) or audiovisual signals (television) that are accessible to a wide population via standard, readily available receivers.
