Malawi

the 10th century. Centuries later in 1891 the area was colonized by the British. In 1953 Malawi, then known as Nyasaland, became part of the semi-independent Central African Federation (Federation of Rhodesia and Nyasaland) (CAF). The Federation was dissolved in 1963, and in 1964, Nyasaland gained full independence and was renamed Malawi. Upon gaining independence it became a single-party state under the presidency of Hastings Banda, who remained president until 1994, when he lost an election. Prof. Peter Mutharika is the current president. Malawi has a democratic, multi-party government. Malawi has a small military force (Malawian Defence Force) that includes an army, a navy and an air wing. Malawi's foreign policy is pro-Western and includes positive diplomatic relations with most countries and participation in several international organisations. Malawi is among the world's least-developed countries (List of countries by Human Development Index). The economy is heavily based in agriculture, with a largely rural population. The Malawian government depends heavily on outside aid to meet development (economic development) needs, although this need (and the aid offered) has decreased since 2000. The Malawian government faces challenges in building and expanding the economy, improving education, health care, environmental protection, and becoming financially independent. Malawi has several programs developed since 2005 that focus on these issues, and the country's outlook appears to be improving, with improvements in economic growth, education and healthcare seen in 2007 and 2008. Malawi has a low life expectancy and high infant mortality. There is a high prevalence of HIV AIDS, which is a drain on the labour force and government expenditures. There is a diverse population of native peoples, Asians (Asian people) and Europeans (Ethnic groups in Europe), with several languages spoken and an array of religious beliefs. Although there was periodic regional conflict fuelled in part by ethnic divisions in the past, by 2008 it had diminished considerably and the concept of a Malawian nationality had re-emerged. Malawian cultural practices and Malawian cuisine are rich in local, southern African, and overseas influences, as well as this, they have many peculiar forms of cuisine found no where else. These include eating ants, honey soaked beetles and a type of native fish which is dried, baked in spices and then soaked in goat milk and various leaves for up to two days creating a type of tea flavored jerky, though this is only prevalent in rural areas within small communities.

Portugal

. In the ensuing centuries (century) Västervik suffered attacks from hostile armies. It was more or less completely destroyed five times between 1450 and 1677. Despite this, king Gustav Vasa established a ship industry here in the 16th century, from which ships sailed to Germany and the Baltic countries, and from the 17th century they sailed to Portugal too. In the 18th century a long period of peace allowed the ship industry to expand, increasing the ship routes down

Following its heyday as a world power during the 15th and 16th centuries (century), Portugal lost much of its wealth and status first through the loss of its military and naval power due to the military disaster of Alcacer-Kibir, and shortly thereafter its fleet, which had had been incorporated into the Spanish Armada so the country was unable to defend its interests overseas.

Romania

; also historically referred to as '''Jassy''' or '''Iassy''') is one of the largest cities (Cities in Romania) and a municipality (Municipality in Romania) in Romania. Located in the historical Moldavia region, Iași has traditionally been one of the leading centres of Romanian social, cultural, academic and artistic life. The city was the capital of the Principality of Moldavia from 1564 to 1859, then of the United Principalities from 1859 to 1862, and the capital of Romania (Kingdom of Romania) from 1916 to 1918. As of 2010-2011 there have been several proposals for the administrative reorganization of Romania made by the presidential commission tasked with the analysis of the current political and constitutional system. http: www.presidency.ro static ordine CPARPCR Raport_CPARPCR.pdf Most of these recommendations aim for the partial reestablishment of the counties in their pre-1950 form (NUTS III level (Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics)). If this reform were adopted, the counties would be grouped into several regions (9 to 15) based on common historical and economic characteristics (NUTS II level (Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics)). The regions will be in their turn clustered into 4-6 macroregions (NUTS I level (Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics)). Furthermore, a NUTS IV (Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics) level division, called ''plasă'' or ''canton'', would probably be added in order to meet the EU (European Union) statistical and administrative requirements. http: www.romanialibera.ro dosar a129846-cum-va-arata-harta-romaniei.html In Romania, the traditional ''sângerete'' (Romania) (from
