If somebody finds a source, then they should directly put the verifiable information into an appropriate high level article. Also, if we don't delete, but do a merge, I would do a disambig instead of a redirect. It's not clear to me that Broadmoor, California is actually "Broadmoor village". This makes me think Broadmoor, California is the "Township of Broadmoor", which is unit of government immediately below the county (separate from any city). However a place called "Broadmoor village" might be inside of Daly City, California, which is presumably close, but maybe not the same thing as the Township. Plus the Broadmoor, California doesn't say "Village" or "Township", but just "census designated" place, which could mean it's unicorporated. I don't know. So, I say just delete this article, and people can put proper info from proper sources in proper places when they have the time to do things properly. --Rob (User:Thivierr) 19:15, 4 January 2006 (UTC) *'''merge''' as above.--Marvin147 (User:Marvin147) 03:34, 5 January 2006 (UTC) '''Michael P.

Samarkand

Akbar (son of Humayun), the Shirani Pathan migrated to Kaligam (near Ahemdabad, Gujarat). At that time, the Nawab of Gujarat sent them to fight the Dodia Rajput near the Rajasthan-Gujarat border. The Shirani Pathan defeated Dodia Rajput in battle, and took over their land; they were called Shembher (or Summer), since they came from Samarkand.The peoples of Sherani district have long historical background. They also put up resistance to the British occupation. With the Russian Empire continuously advancing south in the course of two wars against Persia, and the treaties of Turkmanchai and Golestan in the western frontiers, plus the unexpected death of Abbas Mirza in 1823, and the murder of Persia's Grand Vizier (''Mirza AbolQasem Qa'im Maqām''), Persia lost its traditional foothold in Central Asia to the Russian Tsarist armies. '' Nasser Takmil Homayoun. ''Kharazm: What do I know about Iran?''. 2004. ISBN 964-379-023-1 p.78 '' The Russian armies occupied the Aral (Aral Sea) coast in 1849, Tashkent in 1864, Bukhara (Emirate of Bukhara) in 1867, Samarkand in 1868, and Khiva (Khanate of Khiva) and Amudarya in 1873. The Treaty of Akhal, in which the Qajarid's were forced to cede Khwarazm, topped off Persian losses to the global emerging power of Imperial Russia. Born in Georgia, then part of the Russian Empire, he graduated from the 3rd Alexander’s School (1887) and the General Staff Academy in St Petersburg (1894). The next ten years were spent in military work in various regions of the empire. He took part in the Russo-Japanese war (1904–1905) in the capacity of a chief of staff of the 6th Eastern Siberian Division. He served, from 9 November 1911 to 9 January 1914, a governor general of Samarkand and was moved afterwards as a chief of staff of the Turkestan Military District. Promoted to lieutenant general on 11 October 1914, he held various commanding posts in the 1st (1st Army (Russian Empire)) and 3rd armies (3rd Army (Russian Empire)) from November 1914 to the fall of 1917. On October 2, 1917 he was appointed the commander-in-chief of the Caucasus Army (Russian Caucasus Army (World War I)). In January 1918 he was in command at Erzurum. After the total collapse of the Tsarist (Tsarism) administration in the Caucasus, he resigned as a commander and helped to organize national Georgian divisions. In March 1918, he served as deputy minister of war for the Transcaucasian Transcaucasian Commissariat, but was sacked for his nationalistic sentiments. After Georgia (Georgia (country))’s declaration of independence (May 26, 1918), he held various important posts in the national armed forces and served as the commander-in-chief of army from the Fall of 1920 to February 1921. After the Soviet invasion of Georgia he was shot by the Bolsheviks. right frame Mírzá Abu'l-Fadl-i-Gulpáygání (Image:Abu'l-Fadl2.jpg) After his 1882 imprisonment, he began extensive travels throughout the Persian Empire, especially after he received letters from Bahá'u'lláh in 1886 asking him to travel to teach the Bahá'í Faith. It was principally through his writings that the Bahá'í Faith was presented to the Jews of Iran in such a way as to bring a large number of them into accepting Bahá'u'lláh. During his travels in Iran he visited Kashan, Isfahan (Isfahan (city)), Yazd and Tabriz. In 1888 and the three years thereafter he travelled to Ashgabat, Samarkand, and Bukhara. During his time in Ashgabat, Haji Muhammad Rida Isfahani, a prominent Bahá'í was assassinated; Abu'l-Fadl acted as the spokesman on behalf of the Bahá'í at the trial of the murders, and helped establish the independence of the Bahá'í Faith from Islam for the Russian government. In Samarkand, his teaching efforts allowed for the conversion of the first Afghan (Afghanistan) Bahá'í, Dr. `Ata'u'llah Khan. thumb left A page of Lu Yu (Image:Chajing.jpeg)'s '' Classic of Tea'' During the Tang, the many common foodstuffs and cooking ingredients in addition to those already listed were barley, garlic, salt, turnips, soybeans, pears, apricots, peaches, apples, pomegranates, jujubes, rhubarb, hazelnuts, pine nuts, chestnuts, walnuts, yam (yam (vegetable))s, taro, etc. Benn, 120. The various meats that were consumed included pork, chicken, lamb (Lamb (meat)) (especially preferred in the north), sea otter, bear (which was hard to catch, but there were recipes for steamed, boiled, and marinated bear), and even Bactrian camels. In the south along the coast meat from seafood was by default the most common, as the Chinese enjoyed eating cooked jellyfish with cinnamon, Sichuan pepper, cardamom, and ginger, as well as oysters with wine, fried squid with ginger and vinegar, horseshoe crabs and red crab (crab)s, shrimp, and pufferfish (Tetraodontidae), which the Chinese called 'river piglet'. Benn, 121. Some foods were also off-limits, as the Tang court encouraged people not to eat beef (since the bull was a valuable draft animal), and from 831 to 833 Emperor Wenzong of Tang even banned the slaughter of cattle on the grounds of his religious convictions to Buddhism. Benn, 125. From the trade overseas and over land, the Chinese acquired golden peaches from Samarkand, date palm (Date Palm)s, pistachios, and fig (ficus)s from Persia, pine seeds and ginseng roots from Korea, and mangoes from Southeast Asia.

are in the right place. Most of the products and ingredients are organic, and radiation levels are constantly checked in the food to avoid contamination. ; "Take fresh aurochs, and if you do not have any, you can use the elk instead". : From an 18th-century Belarusian cookbook Modern Belarusian cookery is based on old national traditions, which have undergone a long historical evolution. But the main methods of traditional Belarusian cuisine are carefully kept by the people. Common in Belarusian cuisine were dishes made with potatoes, which are called "the second bread". The Belarusians bring fame to their beloved potato in their verses, songs and dances. There are special potato cafes in the country where you can try various potato dishes. Potato is included in many salads and it is served together with mushrooms and or meat; different ''pirazhki'' (patties) and baked puddings are made from it. The most popular among the Belarusians is traditional ''draniki'' (known as "latkes" to North Americans, but eaten only with sour cream, never apple sauce), thick pancakes prepared from shredded potatoes. The wide spread of potato dishes in Belarusian cuisine can be explained by natural climatic conditions of Belarus which are propitious for growing highly starched and tasty sorts of potatoes. Meat and meat products, especially pork and salted pork fat, play a major role in the diet of Belarusians. One of the people's proverbs says: "There is no fish more tasty than tench, and there is no meat better than pork". Salted pork fat is used slightly smoked and seasoned with onions and garlic. Pyachysta is one of the traditional holiday dishes. This is boiled, stewed or roasted sucking pig, fowl or large chunks of pork or beef. Dishes prepared from meat are usually served together with potatoes or vegetables such as carrot, cabbage, black radish, peas, etc. It is characteristic that many vegetable and meat dishes are prepared in special stoneware pots. Among dishes from fish, the Belarusians prefer yushka, galki and also baked or boiled river-fish without special seasonings. In general, the most common seasonings are onions, garlic, parsley, dill, caraway seeds and pepper; they are used very moderately in Belarusian cookery. The national dishes are hearty and tasty nonetheless. Among the fruit and vegetable choices are fresh, dried, salted and pickled mushrooms, and berries such as bilberry, wild strawberries, red whortleberry, raspberries, cranberries and some others. Of flour dishes, the most popular is zacirka. Pieces of specially prepared dough are boiled in water and then poured over with milk or garnished with salted pork fat. The Belarusians prefer to use whole milk, which affected some methods of making yoghurt and the so-called klinkovy cottage cheese. In Belarusian cuisine, milk is widely used for mixing in vegetable and flour dishes. '''Signature dishes''' *'''Draniki''' *'''Potato babka''' *'''Knish''' *'''Pyachysta''' *'''Zacirka''' Drink You can get soft drinks and (Czech) beer everywhere in Belarus. Typical non-alcoholic drinks include '''Kefir''', which is a sort of sour milk, similar to yogurt, '''Kvas''' and '''Kompot'''. '''Vodka''' (''harelka''), bitter herbal ''nastoikas'' (especially Belavezhskaja) and sweet balsams are the most common alcoholic drinks. '''Krambambula''' is a traditional medieval alcoholic drink which you can buy in most stores or order in a restaurant. It's a pretty strong drink but its taste is much softer than vodka. '''Medovukha''' (or Myadukha) is a honey-based alcoholic beverage very similar to mead. '''Sbiten''' is a combination of kvass (another common soft alcohol drink) with honey. '''Berezavik''' or '''biarozavy sok''' is a birch tree juice which is collected in March from small holes in birch tree trunks with no harm to the plants themselves. There are several variations of this very refreshing alcohol-free drink, which is a good thirst-quencher in hot weather. Sleep ''"Legal theft"''. Most hotels in Minsk are safe.

Since Belarusians are very afraid of the authorities and thus of committing a crime, some corrupt hotels may practice a very annoying way of stealing, so called "legal theft" involving maids (often in conspiracy with the reception personnel). While cleaning your room (in your absence) they may '''hide''' your personal belongings in the most outrageous parts of your room, combining bizarre sets of items, such as a cellular phone with a piece of bread, a wallet with a cheap magazine or a pair of glasses (!). The trick is: if you miss them, the maid will come and collect them later, if you report the items missing (or find them by yourself) you won't be able to do a thing (since the items never left the room, it is not considered a theft). The personnel may also ridicule your allegation by pointing out why on earth they would want to hide some bread or a hotel magazine - they just accidentally tucked the items away while cleaning. Avoid such unpleasant situations by always locking your valuables in the hotel safe or at least taking them with you. Before checking out, always search the room thoroughly (wardrobes, cabinets, deep shelves, behind sofas and radiators). Learn Russian language courses at the Belarus State Economic University and the Minsk State Linguistic University safe Belarus has a moderate level of crime. Fortunately, crimes against foreigners are rare, though criminals have been known to use force if met with resistance from victims. Common street crime, such as mugging and pickpocketing, occurs most frequently near public transportation venues, near hotels frequented by foreigners, and or at night in poorly lit areas. In many areas, you should be especially alert in metro and bus stations, as criminals have a likely chance in attacking you. Avoid visiting night clubs and discothèques, as these are operated by criminal gangs willing to search for greater money, but street-level organized criminal violence is rare and does not generally affect expatriates. Cyber-crime of all kinds is well-developed in Belarus. Merchandise orders with fraudulent credit cards, ID theft, hacking blackmail schemes, and Nigerian-style advanced fee fraud are gaining in popularity. If you are doing business with persons or firms in Belarus electronically, you should proceed with extreme caution. Not only is electronic fraud common at ATMs and grocery stores, serious injuries have been inflicted during assaults at street-side ATMs. If you participate in a street demonstration with political banners, expect to be detained within minutes. How fast you get out (24 hours or 24 days) depends on your connections, your social status, etc. Westerners especially should avoid any political discussions, protests, etc., due to the government's keen opposition to dissenting views. Belarus is still largely a discriminatory society. Gay and lesbian travellers face widespread discrimination in Belarus, as do Jews. If you are in any of these categories, it is best not to travel to Belarus in the first place. Many demonstrations can be identified by seeing a red and white banner: a white background, with a strip of red going horizontally across in the centre, forming a white red white flag. If you see this flag, do your best to stay away from the demonstration. Security personnel may at times place you, as a foreigner, under surveillance; hotel rooms, telephones, and fax machines may be monitored, and personal possessions in hotel rooms may be searched. Taking photographs of anything that could be perceived as being of military or security interest may result in problems with authorities; these sites are not always clearly marked and the application of these restrictions is subject to interpretation. Visible and hidden dangers exist, including potholes, unlighted or poorly lighted streets, inattentive and dark-clothed pedestrians walking on unlighted roads, drivers and pedestrians under the influence of alcohol, and disregard for traffic rules. Driving in winter is especially dangerous because of ice and snow. Drivers are urged to exercise caution at all times. The KGB in Belarus has not changed its name since the days of the Soviet Union - it is still called the KGB, and its habits have probably not changed much either. Some ethnic Polish journalists and journalists with Polish citizenship had hassles with the authorities (ranging from being refused entry to a dozen or so days in prison) during 2005. If you have a Polish sounding name, you had better have good evidence that you're not a journalist. Belarus police organizations are well trained and professional, but severely restricted by an un-reformed Soviet-era legal system, corruption, and politicization of the police force and other government authorities. Due to low salaries, it is not uncommon for officers to collect bribes during traffic stops. Sophisticated criminal investigations are often inconclusive because of a lack of resources and or political will. Belarusians are extremely clumsy drivers. Stay healthy Historically, Belarus maintained an excellent health system, but when the Chernobyl disaster broke out, the medical care has damaged the system severely. Therefore, medical care in Belarus is neither modern nor easily accessible. Of significant note is that the system is only accessible for people who speak fluent Russian and Belarussian. Ambulances are poorly equipped and unreliable; a wait time of 30 minutes or more is not unusual. The fastest way to secure Western-level care is medical evacuation to the European Union. Tuberculosis (TB) is an increasingly serious health concern in Belarus. Consider consulting with a doctor about getting vaccinated before traveling to Belarus. In Belarus, there is a large institute with substantial funding for studying the food chain impact of the Chernobyl disaster, which happened in 1986 in a nuclear power plant on the Ukraine-Belarus border. In principle, food inspectors check food not only for bacterial contamination but also for radiation levels. Most food is considered ''safe'', except if sourced from the banned regions within Commons:Category:Belarus Wikipedia:Belarus Dmoz:Regional Europe Belarus
