During the 1950s, while the airport was still named ''Uplands'' and a joint-use civilian military field, it was the busiest airport in Canada by takeoffs and landings, reaching a peak of 307,079 aircraft movements in 1959, nearly double its current traffic. At the time, the airport had scheduled airline flights by Trans-Canada Air Lines (Toronto, Montreal, and Val-d'Or), Trans Air (Churchill (Churchill, Manitoba)), and Eastern Air Lines (New York (New York City) via Syracuse (Syracuse, New York) and Washington (Washington, D.C.) via Montreal).

modified into the long-range Tu-114D variant, with seating reduced from 170 to 60, and 15 extra fuel tanks added. These aircraft operated from Murmansk, in the far north of the Soviet Union, and then entirely across the ocean to Havana. In most cases, this fuel load was enough, but in case of strong headwinds, an emergency refueling stop in Nassau (Nassau, Bahamas) in the Bahamas was necessary (ironically at an American military field). All planes operating this route were converted back

(File:Pakistan population density.png) The majority of southern Pakistan's population lives along the Indus River. Karachi is the most populous city in Pakistan. In the northern half, most of the population lives about an arc formed by the cities of Faisalabad, Lahore, Rawalpindi, Islamabad, Gujranwala, Sialkot, Nowshera (Nowshera, Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa), Swabi, Mardan, and Peshawar. Punjabi Punjabi (Punjabi language) is a provincial language spoken as a first language by more than 44% of Pakistanis, mostly in Punjab (Punjab (Pakistan)) as well as by a large number of people in Karachi. It is an important language since Punjabi is spoken by about half of Pakistanis. However, Punjabi does not have any official status in Pakistan. The exact numbers of Punjabi speakers in Pakistan is hard to find since there are many dialects languages, such as Saraiki (Saraiki language), which some regard as part of Punjabi and others regard as separate language. When taking into account Hindko, Potwari, Pahari, Saraiki, Punjabi dialects are thus spoken by almost 60% of the population in Pakistan. The standard Punjabi dialects is from Lahore

Basra

; and General Otto Liman von Sanders, who was a successful commander of the Ottoman Army during World War I, may be the most famous of them in the military field. Some of the most beautiful Bosporus villas (yalı), such as the Krupp and Huber Villa; or the German Fountain (1900) and Haydarpaşa Train Station (Istanbul Haydarpaşa railway station) Emporis: Haydarpaşa Train Station, Istanbul (1908) in Istanbul are still a relict of the German influence in the late Ottoman Empire. Most of the German engineers and craftsmen who worked at the construction site of the Haydarpaşa Train Station later established a small German neighbourhood in the nearby Yeldeğirmeni quarter of the Kadıköy district, on the Asian side of Istanbul. Previously, the German architect August Jachmund had designed the Sirkeci Train Station (Istanbul Sirkeci railway station) Emporis: Sirkeci Train Station, Istanbul (1890) on the European side of Istanbul, and the nearby Deutsche Orient Bank Headquarters Emporis: Deutsche Orient Bank, Istanbul (1890) in the Sirkeci quarter, within the boundaries of the Eminönü district, during the last year of Chancellor Otto von Bismarck in office. Both of these train stations would play an important role in the Berlin-Istanbul-Baghdad Railway (Baghdad Railway) project which would enhance the economic and political ties between the German (German Empire) and Ottoman (Ottoman Empire) empires, and allow Germany to by-pass the British (British Empire)-controlled Suez Canal for reaching the lucrative markets and resources of the Orient by extending the railway line further south to the port of Basra on the Persian Gulf. Ibn Sa`d was from Basra, Iraq, then lived in Baghdad in the 9th century. He is said to have died at the age of 62 in Baghdad. and was buried in the cemetery of the Syrian gate.

The British Museum - Assyrian Sculpture, pg 6-7 (Julian Reade, 2004, ISBN 071412141X) :''For the 5th generetion Jewish Amora (Amoraim) sage of Babylon, see Rav Mesharshiya.'' '''Māsarjawaih''' was one of the earliest Arabic Jewish physicians, and the earliest translator from the Syriac; he lived in Basra about 683 (Anno Hegirae 64). His name, distorted, has been transmitted in European sources; it has not yet been satisfactorily explained. Neuda (in "Orient, Lit." vi. 132) compares the name "''Masarjawaih''" with the Hebrew proper name "''Mesharsheya''"; but the ending "''-waih''" points to a Persian (Persian language) origin. The form "''Masarjis''" has been compared with the Christian proper name "''Mar Serjis''"; but it is not known that Masarjis embraced either Christianity or Islam. After the Battle of the Camel, Ali returned from Basra to Kufa in Rajab of 36 A.H. (January 657). He decided to transfer the capital of his government to Kufa from Medina because it was more centrally placed in the Muslim Empire, and he could halt Muawiyah’s progress into Iraq. Ali ibn Abi Talib tried to settle matters peacefully by sending an envoy to Syria. He chose Jarir, who was the chief of Banu Bajila and governor of Hamdan. However, negotiations proved fruitless, and Muawiyah's army pledged an oath that they would not wash or sleep a night at home, until the murderers of Uthman were brought to justice. Moreover, they also swore to bring to justice all those who sheltered the murderers. Despite his age (he was now 58), Ali attacked personally with his Medinan troops in the centre, with his troops from Basra and Kufa on the flanks. Muawiyah watched the battle from a pavilion on the field, surrounded by his Personal Guard. Amr ibn al-Aas led Muawiyah's cavalry against the Kufa flank with great success, and almost broke through to kill Ali. However, Ali's personal bravery inspired his troops, and the attack was stalled. At the head of the Basra troops was al-Ashtar and 300 qari (reciters), who led the assault on Muawiyah's forces. The attack was quite successful, and almost drove Mu'awiyah from the field. accessdate Today it is found primarily in the Basra area of southern Iraq where they form the majority in many districts, although no longer in the city.

Finnish soldiers on peacekeeping missions are famous for their saunas; even on the UNMEE mission in Eritrea, a sauna was one of the first buildings to be erected.
