own camps, Komala abolished gender segregation and women took part in combat and military training. ***My judgement is based on the following: - there exists an article called History of the Kurds and in this article is a section called History_of_the_Kurds#Modern_History_of_the_Kurds with a link to a main article called Modern history of the Kurds which is currently redlinked. The section in question covers the period 1828-present day. There currently isn't any reference to the two items of information in Kingdom of Kurdistan which are an attempt at independence from the British mandate which did not last long and an attempt at independence from Turkey which did not last long. These two pieces of information are part of the modern history of the Kurds and should be referenced there. An article about independence struggles in Kurdistan would have more than just two basic pieces of information and would not be called Kingdom of Kurdistan. There should in my view be an article on the modern history of Kurdistan and at most, the information presented in Kingdom of Kurdistan would be a small section within that. MLA (User:MLA) 19:32, 2 March 2006 (UTC) ****The key words in your kind reply are "redlinked" and "should", which only confirm my opinion that the nomination for deletion was a bit of misunderstanding. You just don't delete information from wikipedia just because it should be a part of the article which '''does not exist''' yet. I am not in a position to evaluate the validity of the term "Kingdom of Kurdistan"; I may understand the position that if someone proclaims himself King, this does not necessarily mean that there is a "Kingdom". But this is a different issue, and again, you just '''don't''' delete a correct and significant information from wikipedia. We already have an article about Republic of Mahabad, which was just as shortlived. Mukadderat (User:Mukadderat) 22:19, 2 March 2006 (UTC) *****Hmm.... Republic of Mahabad was also called kingdom of kurdistan... I for one am confused in this flood of 3 kingdoms with identical titles. Even a disambiguation page would be hard to create. Since all 3 of the kingdoms existed ceased to exist repetively in the same time period. It is perfectly fine to explain this under a "modern hostory of kurds" rather than pathetic individual articles that cannot grow beyond stubs. Each article can hardly fill a stub.


Constanța

charm, the sea coast, the Tomis marina or one of the many parks, on the lake-side or through the ruins of the ancient Greek colony Tomis. Beach You can do sunbathing or you can swim in the Black Sea. There is a large beach called Modern right in the middle of the city, which is favored by locals and is near the marina. Very very shallow waters (you can walk for 20–30 meters and the water won't pass your knees) so it's suited if you want to take your kids there and let them play safely in the water. The most significant beaches are in the Mamaia resort which is in the north part of Constanţa. It consists of about 6-7 kilometers of sandy beaches with absolutely no rocks; the width of the beaches vary from 20 to 150 meters. It's also full of hotels, clubs and bars and extremely popular and fashionable in the summer. Moreover in the off season (September–April) they are a great place for taking pictures walks, or rides with the atv or enduro motorcycle and there are some centers for renting atv-s near the Cleopatra bar at the beginning of the resort. If you arrive by car not registered in the county of Constanţa from May June to September expect to pay an entrance fee of 3 Lei (~ €0.70) at the entrance ticket booth for your car, although in 2006 the tax was off. The ratio of free parking paid parking is around 25% 75% and the parking lots with the fee are guarded and not that expensive (3 Lei per hour) and a good alternative especially if you are on a motorcycle because people will climb your bike to take pictures on it. The paid parking places are marked with a white P on a blue background. The unpaid parking lots are on the sides of the main boulevard. Cinemas * Wikipedia:Constanța Commons:Category:Constanţa

с Кавказом, Москва, 1889, с. 508 In the 1770s there were more Ossetians living in Kartli (Kingdom of Kartli (1484–1762)) than ever before. This period has been documented in the travel diaries of Johann Anton Güldenstädt who visited Georgia in 1772.

Greece

Control authority to pay off the country's debtors. Another political issue in 19th-century Greece was uniquely Greek: the language question. The Greek people spoke a form of Greek called Demotic (Modern Greek). Many of the educated elite saw this as a peasant dialect and were determined to restore the glories of Ancient Greek. Government documents and newspapers were consequently published in ''Katharevousa'' (purified) Greek, a form which few ordinary Greeks could read. Liberals favoured

the Golden Age of Greek cinema (Cinema of Greece#The Golden Age). Contemporary laïkó (σύγχρονο λαϊκό), also called ''Modern laïkó,'' is currently Greece's mainstream music genre. Some of the strongest Greek dances and rhythms of today's Greek music culture ''laïká'' are nisiótika, hasaposerviko (hasapiko), kalamatianos, zeibekiko and syrtaki and the most of them are set to music by the Greek instrumental bouzouki. So, on the one hand there is the homogenized Greek (Culture of Greece) popular song, with all the idioms of traditional Greek folk music, and on the other, the peculiar musical trends of the urban rebetiko (song of the cities) known also in Greece as ''αστικό''. greekdance.dancenews.gr - "Ο ορος ''λαικοι χοροι'' " '''Laïkó''' (λαϊκό τραγούδι 'song of the people' or αστική λαϊκή μουσική 'urban folk music'), also known today as ''classic laïkó'' (κλασικό παλιό λαϊκό). It is the urban music of Greece that emerged by the creation of Greek music culture as rebetiko in the 20th century, and has taken many styles over the years. Until the 1930s the Greek Discography was dominated by two musical genres: the Greek folk music (''demotiká'') and the ''Elafró tragoudi'' (literally: "light song"). The latter was the Greek version of the international urban music of the era. ''Classic laïkó'' as it is known today, was the mainstream popular music of Greece during the 60s and 70s. Laïkó was dominated by singers such as Grigoris Bithikotsis, Marinella, Stelios Kazantzidis, Panos Gavalas and others. Among the most significant songwriters and lyricists of this period are considered George Zambetas, Manolis Hiotis and Vassilis Tsitsanis; of course the big names of this kind are still in Greek business. The more cheerful version of laïkó, called ''elafró laïkó'' (ελαφρολαϊκό - ''elafrolaïkó'' 'light laïkó') and it was often used in musicals during the Golden Age of Greek cinema (Cinema of Greece#The Golden Age). Contemporary laïkó (σύγχρονο λαϊκό), also called ''Modern laïkó,'' is currently Greece's mainstream music genre.

Vienna

in the context of the Jugendstil, his demand for "the elimination of ornament" joined the slogan "form follows function" as a principle of the architectural so-called Modern Movement that came to dominate the mid-20th Century. Walter Gropius, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Le Corbusier provided the theoretical basis for the International Style (International Style (architecture)) with aims of using industrialised architecture to reshape society. Frank Lloyd Wright, while modern in rejecting historic revivalism, was idiosyncratic in his theory, which he conveyed in copious writing. Wright did not subscribe to the tenets of the International Style, but evolved what he hoped would be an American, in contrast to a European, progressive course. Wright's style, however, was highly personal, involving his particular views of man and nature. Wright was more poetic and firmly maintained the 19th century view of the creative artist as unique genius. This limited the relevance of his theoretical propositions. Towards the end of the century postmodern architecture reacted against the austerity of High Modern (International Style) principles, viewed as narrowly normative and doctrinaire. __NOTOC__ He was born in Vienna, where he studied the flute at the Vienna Conservatory (University of Music and Performing Arts, Vienna). While holding various conducting posts in the city, he began to compose operettas. The first was ''Der tote Gast'', an operetta in one act, premiered in 1865 with libretto by Ludwig Harisch, after the novel by Heinrich Zschokke. She was born in Mährisch-Ostrau in Austria-Hungary (today Ostrava in the Czech Republic), as '''Lore Schirner'''. She studied history, German literature and philosophy in Berlin and Vienna.

Paur was born in Czernowitz, Austria, now Ukraine, and trained in Vienna before working as a conductor in Kassel, Königsberg and Leipzig. He then emigrated to the United States where he led the Boston Symphony Orchestra, New York Philharmonic and Pittsburgh Symphony. After returning to Germany, he went on to conduct Berlin State Opera. Paur was considered a serious conductor, favouring the works of Johannes Brahms, which were at the time considered heavy listening. 210px thumb Wilhelm Gericke (Image:Gericke.png) '''Wilhelm Gericke''' (18 May 1845 – 27 October 1925) was an Austrian-born conductor (Conducting) and composer who worked in Vienna and Boston. Biography He was born in Schwanberg, Austria. Initially he trained in Graz to be a schoolmaster. This didn't work out, though he did get a position playing violin in a theatre orchestra.
