CERN's main function is to provide the particle accelerators and other infrastructure needed for high-energy physics research - as a result, numerous experiments have been constructed at CERN following international collaborations. It is also the birthplace of the World Wide Web..The main site at Meyrin has a large computer centre containing powerful data-processing facilities, primarily for experimental-data analysis; because of the need to make these facilities available to researchers elsewhere, it has historically been a major wide area networking hub..

The LHC tunnel is located 100 metres underground, in the region between the Geneva International Airport and the nearby Jura mountains. It uses the 27 km circumference circular tunnel previously occupied by LEP which was closed down in November 2000 - CERN's existing PS/SPS accelerator complexes will be used to pre-accelerate protons which will then be injected into the LHC...Since its foundation by 12 members in 1954, CERN regularly accepted new members. All new members have remained in the organisation continuously since their accession, except Spain and Yugoslavia. Spain first joined CERN in 1961, withdrew in 1969, and rejoined in 1983. Yugoslavia was a founding member of CERN but left in 1961. Initially only West Germany was a (founding) member of CERN..

Then, a new nanny or "governess", Ms. Baylock, arrives to replace the previous nanny..Having to attend a wedding ceremony, Katherine instructs Ms. Baylock to have Damien dressed and ready to go, but she balks at the order, questioning whether Damien would "understand the goings-on of an episcopal wedding"..An episcopal see is, in the original sense, the official seat of a bishop. This seat, which is also referred to as the bishop's cathedra, is placed in the bishop's principal church, which is therefore called the bishop's cathedral..The seat is also called the bishop's throne, especially in the Eastern Orthodox Church..Later, Robert is startled in the dark hallway by a deep growl, and when a light is switched on, we see the same dog from earlier sitting at heel to Ms. Baylock.. Robert questions her as to why the dog is here, and she claims that they "could use a good watchdog" and that "Damien loves him"... not pity me, Master Judah. In fact, I'm twice the man I was.. There's Mallet, my other half. We met in the dungeons at the citadel. We were released on the same day, M allet without a tongue and I without life in my legs.. Since then, I have been his tongue and he has been my legs. Together, we make a C onsiderable man...
