large-scale importers of Bulgarian goods. The country also enjoyed good trade relations with various non-Communist developed countries, most notably West Germany and Italy. In order to combat the low quality of many goods, a comprehensive State standard system was introduced in 1970, which included precise and strict quality requirements for all sorts of products, machines and buildings. '''''Zalambdalestes''''' (meaning ''much-like-lambda robber'') was a placental mammal living during the Upper Cretaceous in Mongolia. It is one of the oldest examples of a placental mammal known, and would have lived alongside the dinosaurs. '''''Deltatheridium''''' (meaning ''triangle beast'' or ''delta beast'') is an extinct species of metatherian. It lived in what is now Mongolia during the Upper Cretaceous. It was a basal metatherian, which places it near start of the linage that led to the marsupials, such the kangaroo, koala, and opossum. '''Mator''' or '''Motor''' was a Uralic language (Uralic languages) belonging to the group of Samoyedic languages, extinct since the 1840s. It was spoken in the northern region of the Sayan Mountains in Siberia, close to the Mongolian north border. The speakers of Mator lived in a wide area from the eastern parts of the Minusinsk District (''okrug'') along the Yenisei River to the region of Lake Baikal. Three dialects of Mator were recorded: Mator proper as well as Taygi (Taygi language) and Karagas (Karagas language) (occasionally considered as separate languages, but their differences are few). In its many variations of form it has an extremely wide distribution in the northern hemisphere of the Old World, occurring mostly in saltish soils. It is found in the salt marshes of the British Isles, on the coasts of the Baltic (Baltic Sea), of France and the Mediterranean, and on saline soils in Hungary; thence it extends eastwards, covering immense tracts in Southern Russia, the region of the Caspian Sea and Central Siberia to Chinese Mongolia. In Britain (British Isles) it is found as far as Wigton on the West and Aberdeen on the East; also in north-east Ireland and in the Channel Islands.

Spread It became known from excavations in the Minusinsk area of the Krasnoyarsk Krai, southern Siberia, but the culture was also widespread in western Mongolia, northern Xinjiang, and eastern and central Kazakhstan, with connections or extensions in Tajikistan and the Aral area.

Biography He is best known for saving China when the Zhengtong Emperor fought the Mongol (Mongolia) leader Esen Tayisi in 1449 and was taken prisoner at the Tumu Crisis. The Mongol armies came within 80 km of the capital Beijing at which point the Jingtai Emperor was installed as ruler of China. Yu Qian, as the de-facto Defence Minister, took control of troops, repelling the Mongol (Mongolia) invasion. After the Zhengtong Emperor was released and his plot to regain the throne succeeded, Yu was slandered as a traitor and executed along with many of the highly ranked officials in the Jingtai Emperor regime , but his rank was restored posthumously. He is considered by many to be a Chinese hero.

It has been suggested that tea eaten whole provides needed roughage normally lacking in the diet. thumb 300px right A brick of tea presented to Tzar Nicholas II (Image:Russiantea1.jpg), 1891 Due to the high value of tea in many parts of Asia, tea bricks were used as a form of currency throughout China, Tibet, Mongolia, and Central Asia. This is quite similar to the use of salt bricks as currency in parts of Africa. Tea bricks were in fact the preferred form of currency over metallic coins for the nomads of Mongolia and Siberia. The tea could not only be used as money and eaten as food in times of hunger but also brewed as allegedly beneficial medicine for treating coughs and colds. Until World War II, tea bricks were still used as a form of edible currency in Siberia. thumb 300px right A brick of tea presented to Tzar Nicholas II (Image:Russiantea1.jpg), 1891 Due to the high value of tea in many parts of Asia, tea bricks were used as a form of currency throughout China, Tibet, Mongolia, and Central Asia.

The principal launch is from Goodwood Circuit, United Kingdom, with subsidiary starting points in other European countries. It is described as the "greatest adventure in the world". Whilst originally the rally required competing vehicles to have an engine displacement of less than 1,000cc, this has been increased to 1,200 cc to reflect the increasing difficulty of obtaining a car since the Mongolian government stipulated that all competing vehicles must be less than 10 years old.
