The great advantage of the pendulum for controlling the escapement of a clock is that, unlike earlier controlling devices, the freely swinging pendulum has a definite period of its own.
The principle was discovered in Italy by Galileo Galilei (1564–1642), but for the practical purposes of European clockmaking, the development of the pendulum began with the Dutch mathematician Christiaan Huygens (1629–1695).
Often found in late seventeenth- and eighteenth-century clocks with long pendulums, the device consists of a flat, toothed wheel mounted at the end of the going train of a clock and a separate, semicircular piece of steel with pallets at each end of the semicircle that somewhat resembles a sea anchor.

 Pro-European - Art History Online Reference and Guide   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Pro-European is a subjective term applied to a person who supports the European Union (EU) and/or further European integration, specifically in the context of political argument over the current and future status of the EU and its policies.
It is argued that the term 'pro-European' should refer to someone who is in favour of European co-operation and cultural interchange in the wider geographical sense (which many eurosceptics claim to be), while 'pro-EU' should be reserved for those who specifically support the co-operative political structure of the European Union.
Despite this distinction, 'pro-EU' and 'pro-European' are used interchangeably in informal speech to refer to someone who is positive about the European Union.
