language Lithuanian ''vilkolakis'' and Romanian (Romanian language) ''vârcolac''. The term is a compound word derived from вълк (''vâlk'') вук (''vuk''), meaning "wolf" and ''dlaka'', meaning "(strand of) hair" (i.e. having the hair, or fur, of a wolf), and originally meant "werewolf" (it still has that meaning in the modern Slavic languages, and a similar one in Romanian: see ''vârcolac''). It is also noteworthy that in the eighteenth century story ''Vrykolokas'' by Pitton de Tournefort (Joseph Pitton de Tournefort), he refers to the revenant as a "werewolf" (loups-garous) which may have also been translated as ''bug-bears'', a strange word that has nothing to do with bugs nor bears, but is related to the word ''bogey'', which means spook, spirit, hobgoblin, etc. ''Vampires, Burial, and Death-Folklore and Reality'' by Paul Barber (1988) Vali-Ballou Press, Birmingham, NY. p 26. However, the same word (in the form ''vukodlak'') has come to be used in the sense of "vampire" in the folklore of Western Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Montenegro (while the term "vampir" is more common in Eastern Serbia, Former Yugoslavic Republic of Macedonia and in Bulgaria). Apparently, the two concepts have become mixed. Петровић, Сретен. Српска митологиjа Even in Bulgaria, original folklore generally describes the ''vârkolak'' as a sub-species of the vampire without any wolf-like features. Иваничка Димитрова.

Compare alsohey the description in Naiden Gerov's Dictionary of the Bulgarian Language ("Речник на блъгарский язик“) (1895–1904) It may also be noted that the Sanskrit word for wolf is vṛ́ka (commonly pronounced as vrika). * Turkey currently not a member of the EU, however uses the blue European strip on the left of the plate as a member of European Customs Union (European Union Customs Union) (only member of the union without EU membership), with the country code (TR), but without the 12-EU stars sign. License plates consist of letters and digits in combinations of 99 AB 999, 99 A 9999, 99 ABC 99, 99 AB 9999 or 99 A 99999 where the first two digits show which province the vehicle is registered from. First two digits numbers go from 01 to 81 (as there are 81 provinces in Turkey) and each one is assigned to a province with alphabetical order e.g. 01 is the code of the province Adana or 34 is the code of the province Istanbul. All 81 provinces uses "01 AB 123" style plates initially until all combinations ran out, then the province starts to use 01 A 1234 then 01 ABC 12 etc. As a result, three largest provinces i.e. Istanbul, Ankara and Izmir are currently issuing 99 AB 9999 style plates since they used all combinations of previous series but the province Sivas for example, still issues 99 AB 999 plates as having a modest population and number of vehicles. 99 A 99999 series are not regular since they are only used in provinces where commercial vehicles are abundant e.g. Bursa to distinguish these vehicles there from passenger cars. Letters "I" and "O" are only used in the middle 01 ABC 12 series e.g. 34 YOC 34 or 06 TIL 56 to avoid confusion with numerals "1" and "0" respectively. Also some letters combinations like "PKK" are banned due to their referring to state-enemy organizations or racy words. * Serbia and Montenegro, currently not a member of the EU, used the following system until 2007: MM 12-34, MM 123-45 or MM 123-456 (MM being two letter abbreviation of municipality (Serbia_and_Montenegro#Administrative_divisions)), and having state flag (of former FR Yugoslavia, later Serbia and Montenegro) between municipality and numbers. Montenegro left that system in 2007, and introduced new format: MM AB 123, with coat of arms (Coat of arms of Montenegro) in circular shape between municipality and letter sequence. Blue strip with MNE country code is placed in the left side, with vacant place for EU stars, in case of joining the Union. Serbia also uses new system with blue strip country code SRB: MM 123-AB and MM 1234-AB, with coat of arms (Coat of arms of Serbia) between municipality and number sequence. The following system is used for taxi vehicles: BG 123 TX or BG 1234 TX, where a TX combination is reserved for this purpose only. * Most countries, including Austria, Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Germany, Greece, Ireland (Republic of Ireland), Macedonia (Republic of Macedonia), Montenegro, Norway, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, and Slovenia (formerly also Italy—until October 1993—, Lithuania and Spain—until 2000—, and Albania—until 2011—), have systems in which there is a direct link between a letter or letters appearing on the plate and the town or district where the plate was issued (e.g. ''"B"'' and ''"M"'' in Germany for Berlin and Munich, ''"TN"'' and ''"ZV"'' in Slovakia for Trenčín and Zvolen, ''"BG"'' and ''"KG"'' in Serbia for Belgrade and Kragujevac and "''AX''" and "''KY''" in Greece for Achaia and Corfu). Some countries, including Austria, Germany, Slovenia, and Switzerland even include a regional or municipal coat of arms on the plate. * France (until 2009), Turkey and Russia use a system with an indirect number relation to the car's place of registration.

Its tallest peak is Lisina (978m). In 1942 Kozara was the site of the Battle on the Kozara, a part of the Yugoslav National Liberation War and Partisan (Yugoslav Partisans) resistance during World War II. * The UK (United Kingdom) uses a system (Vehicle registration plates of the United Kingdom) based on the region where the car was first registered and the date of registration. * Belgium, Denmark, Iceland, Finland, Hungary, Latvia, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Portugal, Sweden and Bosnia and Herzegovina use plates that do not denote location. Since 2000 Spain no longer uses province codes on plates but codes like 'B' for Barcelona or 'M' for Madrid can still be seen, for cars registered before that date. * Italy (Vehicle registration plates of Italy), since 1999, has added a blue strip on either side. On the right one are the two digits of the year when the plate was issued (e.g. "99", "05", "08") and below that there may be an optional two-letter code for the province, such as "MO" for the Province of Modena. Albania (Vehicle registration plates of Albania) and France (Vehicle registration plates of France) have adopted similar formats. A native of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Anto Kovačević entered Croatian politics in early 1990s as one of the most prominent members of Croatian Christian Democratic Union (HKDU). He was outspoken critic of Franjo Tuđman and his handling of war in Bosnia-Herzegovina.

, while Nicholas was visiting Japan during his eastern journey (Eastern journey of Nicholas II). Background Before opening ceremonies in Vladivostok marking the start of construction of the Trans-Siberian Railroad, Tsarevich Nicholas made an official visit to Japan. The Russian Pacific Fleet with the Tsarevich first called on Kagoshima (Kagoshima, Kagoshima), then Nagasaki (Nagasaki, Nagasaki), and then Kobe. From Kobe, the Tsarevich journeyed overland to Kyoto, where he was met by a delegation headed by Prince Arisugawa Taruhito. As this was the first visit by such an important foreign prince to Japan since those of Prince Heinrich of Prussia in 1880 and two British princes in HMS ''Bacchante'' (HMS Bacchante (1876)) in 1881, and as the military influence of the Russian Empire was growing rapidly in the far east, the Japanese government placed heavy emphasis on using this visit to foster better Russo-Japanese relations (Empire of Japan – Russian Empire relations). Nicholas showed interest in the Japanese traditional crafts, got a a dragon tattoo on his right arm, Keene, ''Emperor of Japan, Meiji and His World'', pp.446. Nikolai had read Pierre Loti's ''Madame Butterfly'' before arriving in Nagasaki, and in imitation of Loti had a dragon tattooed on his right arm on May 4 in a painful operation that took 7 hours, from 9 PM to 4 AM. and bought an ornamental hairpin (Kanzashi) for a Japanese girl who happened to be near him. right 225px thumb To contribute to the emergence of a society in which development will supplant stagnation, in which growth will take the place of decay, and in which culture will put an end to barbarism is the noblest, and, indeed, the only true function of intellectual endeavor.
