10 Nuclear Test Sites

For obvious reasons, most of the world’s sites for the testing of nuclear weapons are located in remote and little-known places, away from population areas and prying eyes. Although the sites may make the news whenever a weapon is tested, they are rarely anything but simply a name in the public consciousness. There are now 7 confirmed members of the nuclear club, and each of them at some stage has had to find some remote area to test their weapons. For some of them, lacking substantial areas of remoteness within their borders, this has meant either presuming on the friendship of other countries or simply grabbing hold of some far-flung place and using it despite objections from neighbors. Then there’s the problem of what to do after the testing is finished, which has generally turned out to be a major headache for all concerned. Here then are the top 10 nuclear test sites.

दुनिया की सबसे क्रूरतम सजाएं

मध्यकाल में कैदियों को दी जाने वाली दुनिया की सबसे क्रूरतम सजाएं

यह वाकई काफी दुखद है कि मानवीय भूलों की सजा देने के लिए इतने क्रूर और दर्दनाक तरीके का इस्तेमाल किया जा सकता है, लेकिन यहां दी जा रही जानकारी कल्पना नहीं यथार्थ है। आज के समय में भले ही कैदियों के मानव अधिकारों की चिंता की जाती हो और उन्हें ज़रूरी सुविधाएं उपलब्ध कराई जाती हों, लेकिन आज से कुछ सौ साल पहले हालात यह नहीं थे।

भगवान के दर्शन की इजाजत नहीं

रांची. राजधानी रांची से 22 किलोमीटर की दूरी पर स्थित है गिंजो ठाकुर गांव, जहां मां भवानी शंकर का 300 वर्ष पुराना मंदिर है। जहां एक ओर मंदिर जाने पर श्रद्धालुओं को भगवान के दर्शन कराएं जाते हैं, वहीं इस मंदिर में श्रद्धालुओं को भगवान के दर्शन की इजाजत नहीं है। भक्त पुजारी के माध्यम से प्रसाद चढ़ा कर अपनी श्रद्धा दिखाते हैं। साथ ही मंदिर के पुजारी भी भगवान के दर्शन नहीं कर पाते, क्योंकि भगवान का पूरा शरीर अंग वस्त्र से ढंका रहता है। जबकि पुजारी अंगवस्त्र बदलने और उन्हें स्नान कराने के लिए आंखों पर पट्टी बांध लेते हैं। कहते हैं कि प्रतिमा पूजनीय है, दर्शनीय नहीं, इसलिए ऐसा किया जाता है।
हर रोज लगती है भीड़, मंगलवार को विशेष आयोजन 

मंदिर में यों तो हर दिन सैकड़ों की संख्या में श्रद्धालु पहुंचते हैं, लेकिन मंगलवार को विशेष पूजा का आयोजन होता है। इस दिन अन्य दिनों की अपेक्षा मनोवांछित कार्य होने पर श्रद्धालु मां भावनी शंकर मंदिर प्रागंण में बलि चढ़ाते हैं, जबकि पूजा घंटों होती है।

10 Longest Rivers Of The World

The length of a river can be very hard to calculate. There are many factors, such as the source, the identification or the definition of the mouth, and the scale of measurement of the river length between source and mouth, that determine the precise meaning of “river length”. As a result, the length measurements of many rivers are only approximations. In particular, there has long been disagreement as to whether the Nile or the Amazon is the world’s longest river. The Nile has traditionally been considered longer, but in recent years some Brazilian and Peruvian studies have suggested that the Amazon is longer by measuring the river plus the adjacent Pará estuary and the longest connecting tidal canal. For the purpose of determining maximum length a river’s “true source” is considered to be the source of whichever tributary is farthest from the mouth. This tributary may or may not have the same name as the main stem river. For example, the source of the Mississippi River is normally said to be Lake Itasca in the U.S. state of Minnesota, but the most distant source in the Mississippi system is that of the Jefferson River in the state of Montana, a tributary of the Missouri River which in turn is a tributary of the Mississippi. When the Mississippi is measured from mouth to this farthest source, it is called theMississippi-Missouri-Jefferson. Furthermore, it is sometimes hard to state exactly where a river begins, especially rivers that are formed by ephemeral streams, swamps, or changing lakes. In this article, length means the length of the longest continuous river channel in a given river system, regardless of name.

10. Amur – Argun

The Amur is the world’s tenth longest river, forming the border between the Russian Far East (Outer Manchuria) and Northeastern China (Inner Manchuria). It rises in the hills of western Manchuria at the confluence of its two major affluents, the Shilka River and the Ergune River, at an elevation of 303 metres (994 ft). It flows east forming the border between China and Russia, and slowly makes a great arc to the southeast for about 400 kilometers (250 mi), receiving many tributaries and passing many small towns. At Huma, it is joined by a major tributary, the Huma River. Afterwards it continues to flow south until between the cities of Blagoveschensk (Russia) and Heihe (China), it widens significantly as it is joined by the Zeya River, one of its most important tributaries.
