However, after the match with Xie Jun had already been scheduled, Galliamova objected because the entire match was scheduled to be played in China, the home of her rival. The reason for this was because only China had bid for the match. Galliamova wanted half of the match to be played in Kazan, Russia. However, the Russians did not have the money required. http: www.samsloan.com lianzhi.htm Xie-Galliamova: From Beginning to End By Sun Lianzhi Finally, when Galliamova failed to show up to play the match, the match was declared forfeited to Xie Jun. Finally, after repeated efforts to organize a match which was supposed to have taken place in 1998, FIDE declared that Polgar had forfeited her title and that the title was vacant. The Week in Chess 242 FIDE decided to let Galliamova back into the cycle and held a match between Xie Jun and Galliamova for the Women's World Chess Championship. This time, Galliamova was willing to play because her original demand had been met in that Russia had come up with the money to sponsor half of the match. The match was held in Kazan, Russia and Shenyang, China in August, 1999 and Xie Jun won by 8.5 - 6.5. http: www.samsloan.com xiejun.htm Xie Jun defeats Alisa Galliamova in match for Woman's World Chess Championship Lakes '''Kaban''', the system of lakes in Kazan, Republic of Tatarstan, Russia, includes Nizhny (Blizhny) Kaban, Verkhny Kaban, and Sredny Kaban.

The video for "Put Your Hands Up", off ''Year of the Wolf'', was shot in and around Lant Street in Southwark, London. Jews in the reunited Germany (post-1990) The end of the Cold War contributed to a growth in the Jewish people of Germany. Today, Germany is home to a nominal Jewish population of more than 200,000 (although this number reflects non-Jewish spouses or children who also immigrated under the Quota Refugee Law); 104,024 are officially registered with Jewish religious communities. Mitgliederstatistik 2010 der jüdischen Gemeinden und Landesverbände Most Jews in Germany are recent immigrants from the former Soviet Union. Thousands of Israelis have also moved to Berlin for its relaxed atmosphere and low cost of living. http: www.jta.org news article 2011 07 05 3088418 israeli-expats-flock-to-berlin-for-the-culture-and-the-passport There are also a handful of Jewish families from Muslim countries, including Iran, Turkey, Morocco, and Afghanistan. Germany has the third-largest Jewish population in Western Europe after France (600,000) and Britain (300,000). ''Die Welt'': “''Oberrabbiner tagen erstmals in Berlin.''” November 17, 2004 and the fastest-growing Jewish population in Europe in recent years.

In 2003, Chabad-Lubavitch of Berlin ordained 10 rabbis, the first rabbis to be ordained in Germany since World War II. Yeshiva Trains Rabbis In Berlin In 2002 a Reform rabbinical seminary, Abraham Geiger College, was established in Potsdam.

Language travel Some organizations combine language study with foreign travel in "exotic" destinations (Thailand, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Malta, Morocco, Cyprus, Peru (ACUPARI) etc.), which allow greater immersion and understanding of the destination country's culture and language. Immigration in the 20th century differed significantly from that of the previous century. The 1920s saw great influxes from Italy and Poland; in the 1930-50s immigrants came from Spain and Portugal. Since the 1960s however, the greatest waves of immigrants have been from former French colonies: Algeria (1 million), Morocco (570,000), Tunisia (200,000), Senegal (45,000), Mali (40,000), Cambodia (45,000), Laos (30,000), Vietnam (35,000). Much of this recent immigration was initially economical, but many of these immigrants have remained in France, gained citizenship and integrated into French society. Estimates vary, but of the 60 million people living in France today, close to 4 million claim foreign origin. This massive influx has created tensions in contemporary France, especially over issues of "integration into French society" and the notion of a "French identity", and in recent years the most controversial issues have been with regards to Muslim populations (at 7%, Islam is the second largest religion in today's France; see Islam in France). thumb right 250px Coins of Maldive islands (Image:Maldive-coins.jpg) thumb right 250px Maldive Islands, bank notes, 50 and 100 (Image:Maldives-banknotes 0003.jpg)Cowry shells (Cowry) (''Cypraea moneta''), or ''boli'', were the first known medium of exchange used in the Maldives. Various writers and travellers have in the past recorded the country’s trade in these money shells, which were used as a medium of exchange in parts of Asia and Africa. In the past, cowry were actually cultivated in the Maldives. When Moroccan (Morocco) traveler and historian Ibn Battuta visited there in the 14th century, the Maldives was trading extensively with the money shells. The shells were also used to make ornaments. The country’s trade in cowry shells, which attracted the particular attention of the Dutch (Netherlands) in Ceylon, continued until the late 19th century, when it was used mostly as ballast (sailing ballast) for sailing vessels. The '''huchen''' or '''Danube salmon''' (''Hucho hucho'') is a species of freshwater fish in the salmon family (family (biology)) (family Salmonidae) of order (order (biology)) Salmoniformes. It is the type species of its genus. Native to the Palearctic ecozone, the huchen occurred originally in the Danube basin in Europe but has been introduced elsewhere on the continent and also in Morocco where huchen doesn't reproduce because of high water temperature. In historic times it occurred also in the Dniestr basin. Sometimes it lives in big dam reservoirs on mountain rivers like Czorsztyn Lake in Poland.
