Selangor is Malaysia's most populous state with the nation's biggest conurbation, the Klang Valley. Selangor's geographical position in the centre of Peninsular Malaysia contributed to the state's rapid development as Malaysia's transportation and industrial hub. This created jobs and attracted migrants from other states as well as overseas, especially from Indonesia, the Philippines, Vietnam, Myanmar, Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, and China. In recent decades, the influx of illegal immigrants, particularly from Indonesia, has further contributed to Selangor's population. thumb right A Mississippian culture Mississippian-era (Image:Chromesun mississippian priest digital painting.jpg) priest, with a ceremonial flint mace and a severed head.

(Image:Baltoro region from space annotated.png) The '''Sarpo Laggo Glacier''' (''Sarpo Laggo'': young husband) is a glacier in the autonomous region Xinjiang of China, in the Karakoram mountain range of the Himalayas. It lies north of the Baltoro Muztagh range. It could be reached from the Baltoro glacier on the Pakistani side of the Karakorams via the ''Old Muztagh Pass'' northeast of the Trango Towers. It is however easier to approach the glacier from the Chinese side, starting a long hike at Kashgar on the Karakoram Highway and finally passing K2's northern base camp. The Glacier is named after Francis Younghusband, who was the first person to pass the Old Mustagh Pass and thus enter the Sarpo Laggo region. There is another glacier not far away, also named after him: Younghusband glacier (also known as Biango glacier) flows from Muztagh Tower towards the Baltoro Glacier. History The Central Bureau of Investigation traces its origin to the ''Special Police Establishment'' (SPE) (Hindi: विशेष पुलिस संस्थापन '''Vishesh Police Sansthapan'''), which was set up in 1941 by the Government of India. The functions of the SPE were to investigate cases of bribery and corruption in transactions with the War & Supply Department of India, which was set up during the course of World War II, with its headquarters at Lahore. The Superintendent of War Department and SPE was Khan Bahadur Qurban Ali Khan who later on became the Governor of North West Frontier Province on the creation of Pakistan. The first legal advisor of War Department was Rai Sahib Karam Chand Jain (Karam Chand Jain). Even after the end of the War, the need for a Central Government agency to investigate cases of bribery and corruption by Central Government employees was felt. Rai Sahib Karam Chand Jain (Karam Chand Jain) continued to remain the Legal Advisor when this department was later transferred to the Home Department under the Delhi Special Police Establishment Act brought into force in 1946.

An overview of all available sources from southern Germany concluded that the Bell Beaker Culture was a new and independent culture in that area, contemporary with the Corded Ware Culture. Heyd, Bell Beaker Culture in Southern Germany (1998) This conclusion was supported by a review of radiocarbon dates for Bell Beaker across Europe, which showed that the earliest dates for Bell Beaker were 2900 BC in Iberia (Iberian peninsula). This makes the style contemporary with Corded Ware, but beginning in a different region of Europe. J. Muller and S. van Willigen, New radiocarbon evidence for European Bell Beakers and the consequences for the diffusion of the Bell Beaker Phenomenon, in Franco Nicolis (ed.), Bell Beakers today: Pottery, people, culture, symbols in prehistoric Europe (2001), pp. 59-75. Bell Beaker has been suggested as a candidate for an early Indo-European culture (Proto-Indo-Europeans), more specifically, an ancestral proto-Celtic.

''The Oxford Illustrated Prehistory of Europe'' - Barry Cunliffe, Oxford University Press (1994), pp. 250-254. Its remains have been found in what is now Portugal, Spain, France (excluding the central massif), Great Britain and Ireland, the Low Countries, and Germany between the Elbe and Rhine, with an extension along the upper Danube into the Vienna basin (Austria), Hungary and Czech Republic, with Mediterranean outposts on Sardinia and Sicily; there is less certain evidence for direct penetration in the east. Education In his early years, Savimbi was educated mainly in Protestant (Protestantism) schools, but also attended Roman Catholic (Catholic Church) schools. Eventually, at the age of 24, he was given a scholarship to study in Portugal. There he finished his secondary studies, with the exception of the subject "political organization" that was compulsory during the regime established by António de Oliveira Salazar, so that he was unable to start studying medicine, as originally intended. Instead he became associated with students from Angola and other Portuguese colonies who were preparing themselves for anti-colonial resistance and had contacts with the clandestine Portuguese Communist Party. He knew Agostinho Neto, who was at that time studying medicine and who later went on to become president of the MPLA and Angola's first state President. Under increasing pressure from the Portuguese secret police (PIDE), Savimbi left Portugal for Switzerland with the assistance of Portuguese and French communists and other sympathizers, and eventually wound up in Lausanne. Here he was able to obtain a new scholarship from American missionaries and studied social sciences. He then went on to the University at Fribourg for further studies.

Horseed Media was established in 2002 by a group of Somali intellectuals in the Netherlands and Finland. The station broadcasts from Bosaso and has a listening audience of about 80,000 people, with a reach of 150 km 2 . It also operates a website that counts over 10,000 daily visitors. *Amsterdam: from ''Amstelredam'', which means "dam over the Amstel" (the river Amstel flows through present-day Amsterdam) *Batavia (Netherlands) (Germanic): "arable land" (derived from the regional name "Betuwe", as opposed to the other regional name "Veluwe" meaning "fallow" or "waste" land). Alternatively: the people known as the Batavians (Latin: ''Batavi'') inhabited the island of ''Betawe'' between the Waal (Waal River) and the Rhine. The name of the island probably derives from ''batawjō'' ("good island", from Germanic ''bat''- "good, excellent" and ''awjō'' - "island, land near water"), referring to the region's fertility. *Bonaire: Uncertain, but thought to have been originally derived from the Caquetio (Caquetio people) word ''bonay''. Later Dutch and Spanish colonists modified it, first to Bojnaj and finally to its current name of Bonaire (French: "good air"). frame Alexander Leslie (Image:Alexleslie.jpg) '''Alexander Leslie, 1st Earl of Leven''' (1582 – 4 April 1661) was a Scottish (Scotland) soldier in Dutch (Netherlands), Swedish (Sweden) and Scottish service. Born illegitimate and raised as a foster child, he subsequently advanced to the rank of a Dutch captain, a Swedish Field Marshal (List of Swedish Field Marshals), and in Scotland became lord general in command of the Covenanters, privy councillor (Privy Council of Scotland), captain of Edinburgh Castle, Lord Balgonie and Earl of Leven. thumb 360px Men of Mackay's Regiment in the service of Gustavus Adolphus during the Thirty Years War (File:Scottish mercenaries in the Thirty Years War.jpg) Alexander Leslie entered Dutch (Netherlands) service in 1605, and eventually attained the rank of captain. Stevenson, ODNB, Ailes, Military Migration, p.32 In 1608, he transferred to the Swedish army where he served with distinction. In 1627 the Swedish monarch knighted Alexander Leslie, by now a full colonel. Gustavus Adolphus had a particular affection for him, trusting him with guarding the crucial strategic garrisons in North Germany while the main Swedish army established a foothold on the Baltic shoreline and advanced slowly southwards. In 1628, Leslie was appointed governor of besieged Stralsund, replacing Colonel Alexander Seaton and the Scottish regiment of Donald Mackay who had been holding the town on behalf of the Danes. Leslie continued the successful defense of the town (Battle of Stralsund (1628)) against Albrecht von Wallenstein's imperial (Holy Roman Empire) army in what effectively constituted Sweden's entrance into the Thirty Years' War, Gustav II Adolf also sending eight warships to help raise the siege. Grosjean, An Unofficial Alliance, pp.68-68 The powder made by grinding up such sugar-coated nuts is called ''pralin'' (wikibooks:Cookbook:Pralin), and is an ingredient in many cakes, pastries, and ice creams. Julia Child (1961), ''Mastering the Art of French Cooking'', Alfred A. Knopf When this powder is mixed with chocolate, it becomes ''praliné'' in French, which gave birth to what is known in French as ''praline belge'', Belgian chocolates. The word ''praliné'' is used colloquially in France and Switzerland to refer to these, known simply as "chocolates" in English, i.e. various centres coated with chocolate. You Say Praline, I Say Praline, and They Say Praliné In Europe, the word praline is used to mean either this powder or the paste made from it, often used to fill chocolates, hence its use by synecdoche in Germany, the Netherlands, and Belgium to refer to filled chocolate (Chocolate confectionery)s in general. Belgian Pralines In the United Kingdom, the term can refer either to praline (the filling for chocolates) or, less commonly, to the original whole-nut pralines. Black Grouse can be found across Europe (Swiss-Italian-French Alps specially) from Great Britain (but not Ireland) through Scandinavia and Estonia into Russia. In Eastern Europe they can be found in Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania and Ukraine. There is a population in the Alps, and isolated remnants in Germany, France, Belgium and the Netherlands. It formerly occurred in Denmark, but the Danish Ornithological Society (DOF) has considered it extinct since 2001. thumb 300px Toxandria in a map of Central Europe (919-1125). (Image:Toxandria 919-1125.jpg) '''Toxandria''' is the classical name for a region between the Meuse (Meuse River) and the Scheldt rivers in the Netherlands and Belgium. The name is also spelled '''Taxandria'''. The Salian Franks that settled the area in the 4th century became known as '''Toxandrians.''' These tribes gave rise to the Merovingian dynasty that came to dominate what is now Belgium and France.
