FULLSTERKUR: An Original Film By Rogue / 8K
 
01:27:16
FULLSTERKUR is the third documentary in a collection of films produced by Rogue Fitness, exploring strength culture around the world, connected specifically by the ancient tradition of stone lifting. Nestled at the doorstep of the Arctic Circle, the country of Iceland is uniquely acquainted with the relationship between strength and survival. For hundreds of years, men and women were challenged to overcome harsh weather and endless winter nights by developing their own distinct physical and mental fortitude—passed down from the age of the Vikings, and iconically represented by the lifting of heavy stones. Today, on an island with a population of just over 300,000, a disproportionate number of the world’s greatest strength athletes still call Iceland home. The film features some of the modern stars of Iceland strength, including Magnus Ver Magnusson, Hafthor Bjornsson, and Annie Thorisdottir. But it also sheds light on strength culture’s early roots in the region, from the traditions of the Vikings and Sagas to the lives of farmers and fishermen.

5 Most Disturbing Videos On LiveLeak
 
06:00
LiveLeak is an internet video platform that showcases world events no matter how innocent or graphic. Some of these videos have the ability to send a chill up anyone's spine and make them question what kind of a world they live in. Now without further adue, these are the Most Disturbing Videos on LiveLeak. Follow Me On Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/NightmareFives Music by Myuuji Poltergeist- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vkAtIeHZ4wo Nightmares- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_rW-ArkecW0 If for some reason you want to see these videos, here they are. 5: https://www.liveleak.com/view?i=bb4_1283184704 4: https://www.liveleak.com/view?i=b43_1320971902 https://www.liveleak.com/view?i=181_1429709085 3: https://www.liveleak.com/view?i=719_1500828088 2: https://www.liveleak.com/view?i=334_1310250809 1: https://www.liveleak.com/view?i=f73_1495989583 While you're down here, why don't you check out some more videos. If you like creepy stuff, this is the channel for you! 5 Horrifying Things Caught On Live Stream https://www.youtube.com/edit?o=U&video_id=9DQs-6t8Qj4 5 Internet Challenges That Ended In Death https://www.youtube.com/edit?o=U&video_id=zZPu2LkQfOU 5 Scariest Voicemails Ever Recieved https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8oaV-46iPmQ Subscribe! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCTBF... This video isn't intended to shock or to be sensational. Rather, this video is intended to document what you can find on the internet, more specifically, LiveLeak, no matter how disturbing. All material in this video that can be considered "disturbing" has been censored. 5 Animal overpopulation, especially among dogs, is a huge problem throughout the world, but this isn't a way to fix it. A woman is seen throwing dogs into a river. The dogs seem to be, at the most, a few weeks old. The entire litter most likely died from either trauma or drowning after being thrown. The video was first posted with details about the girl the discription with the hopes of bringing her to justice, LiveLeak later wrote in the video discription that the woman responsible, Katja Pushnick was found, and that they condem any threats or injury toward Puschnik as action has already been taken against her by the proper athorities. 4 Motorcycle accidents are arguably worse than car accidents because of the limited ability for a motorcycle to protect the rider. Several videos exist on liveleak of victims of motorcycle accidents dead from a variety of different situations. One in particular shows a man with their head embedded in a telephone pole after crashing into it at over 100 mph. Another video shows a girl of an undetrmined age missing half of her leg following an accident. Compared to other videos like this one, the girl is lucky only to have lost her leg instead of her life. 3 A woman by the name of Obdulia Sanchez was live streaming herself driving her SUV along with her 14 year old sister, Jacqueline Sanchez, along with a friend. They crashed after veering off to the side of the road. Obdulia's sister was ejected and killed during the accident, but Obdulia herself was okay. Instead of attempting to help her sister or even the others in the car, Sanchez thought the best thing to do was to pose with her sister's lifeless body for those watching her stream. Obdulia was eventually charged with vehicular manslaughter and DUI as her blood alcohol levels were more than 9 times over the legal limit for those under 21 years old. 2 This video shows the aftermath of a car crash with a flatbed truck and a few cars. The crash appears to be fatal as bodies are strewn across the road. One body was possibly seen decapitated. One of the most disturbing parts of the video is a man on the side of the road presumably holding his child as he clings on to life. The child is seen with a major head injury as brain tissue can be seen. Beyond this video, nothing has been reveal regarding the crash such as the cause of the crash and the number of fatalities and injuries. 1 In Punjab, India, a 15 year old girl along with her grandfather were walking to tuition classes when the teen was hit by a truck. She is seen, split in half at the waist. The girl's mother shows up later in the video, horrified at the scene around her. She is heard yelling "my daughter" several times. Surprisingly enough, the teen survived despite the severe blood loss and trauma caused by the accident.

Environmental investments in the Russian Barents region -- NEFCO
 
04:57
Despite excellent cross-border cooperation between the Nordic countries and the Russian Barents region, some serious environmental concerns still remain. The emissions of sulphur oxide and heavy metals from smelters in the Kola peninsula have been one of the main subjects of international environmental cooperation in the Barents region. In 2003, the Nordic Environment Finance Corporation, NEFCO, co-financed a study which identified a number of so called environmental hot spots in the Russian part of the Barents region. The study identified the smelters in Nikel and Zaployarnyi as some of the worst hot spots in the Barents region. In Murmansk, the poor wastewater treatment has also has been identified as one of the region's environmental hot spots. This video shows what NEFCO is doing in order to address the environmental challenges at hand. Learn more about NEFCO: www.nefco.org

Contemporary Cabinets of Curiosity: Artist Mark Dion
 
01:16:36
Presented January 27, 2013 at the Nasher Sculpture Center. In this slide-show, harking back to personal holidays and expeditions prior to digital photography, Artist Mark Dion unpacks his practice of examining the ways in which dominant ideologies and public institutions shape our understanding of history, knowledge, and the natural world. Since the early 1990s, Mark Dion has been appropriating archaeological and other scientific methods of collecting, ordering, and exhibiting objects, the artist creates works that address distinctions between objective scientific methods and subjective influences. By locating the roots of environmental politics and public policy in the construction of knowledge about nature, Dion questions the authoritative role of the scientific voice in contemporary society. Mark Dion was born in New Bedford, Massachusetts, in 1961. He received a BFA (1986) and an honorary doctorate (2003) from the University of Hartford, School of Art, Connecticut. The artist’s spectacular and often fantastical curiosity cabinets, modeled on Wunderkabinetts of the sixteenth century, exalt atypical orderings of objects and specimens. By locating the roots of environmental politics and public policy in the construction of knowledge about nature, Mark Dion questions the authoritative role of the scientific voice in contemporary society. He has received numerous awards, including the ninth annual Larry Aldrich Foundation Award (2001). He has had major exhibitions at Miami Art Museum (2006); the Museum of Modern Art, New York (2004); the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, Ridgefield, Connecticut (2003); and Tate Gallery, London (1999). 'Neukom Vivarium' (2006), a permanent outdoor installation and learning lab for the Olympic Sculpture Park, was commissioned by the Seattle Art Museum. Dion lives and works in Pennsylvania. The Nasher Sculpture Center’s ongoing 360 Speaker Series features conversations and lectures on the ever-expanding definition of sculpture. Guests are invited to witness first-hand accounts of the inspiration behind some of the world’s most innovative artwork, architecture and design.

bacc exhibition MAK Artist Interview-Nguyen Trinh Thi
 
21:47
NGUYEN Trinh Thi (b.1973, Hanoi) received her MA in Journalism from the University of Iowa in 1999, and her Master of International Pacific Studies from the University of California, San Diego in 2005. Her moving image work—including documentary and experimental films, single-channels and video installations—consistently engage with memory and history, and reflect on the roles and positions of art and artists in society and the environment. Her materials are diverse -- from video and photographs shot by herself to those appropriated from various sources including press photos, corporate videos, and classic films; her practice traverses boundaries between film and video art, installation and performance. She has taken part in international exhibitions such as LIM DIM (Stenersen Museum, Norway 2009), Kuandu Biennale (Taiwan 2010), No Soul For Sale 2 (Tate Modern, England 2010), Women in Between: Asian Women Artists 1984-2012 (Fukuoka Asian Art Museum, Japan 2012), and Move on Asia: Video Art in Asia 2002 to 2012 (ZKM Museum of Contemporary Art, Germany 2013). Based in Hanoi, she also founded and directs Hanoi DOCLAB, a center for documentary films and the moving image since 2009. เหงียน ตรินห์ ทิ (2516, ฮานอย) จบการศึกษาระดับปริญญาโทสาขาวารสารศาสตร์ จากมหาวิทยาลัย the Univesrity of Iowa ในปี พ.ศ. 2542 และสาขาความสัมพันธ์ระหว่างประเทศและแปซิฟิกศึกษา จากมหาวิทยาลัย the University of California, San Diego ในปี พ.ศ. 2548 ความทรงจำและประวัติศาสตร์มักจะเข้ามามีส่วนร่วมในผลงานภาพเคลื่อนไหวของเธอเสมอมา รวมถึงภาพยนตร์สารคดี หนังทดลอง โทรภาพผ่านช่องสัญญาณเดียว และการแสดงผลงานศิลปะผ่านวีดิทัศน์ด้วย และสิ่งเหล่านั้นก็สะท้อนบทบาทและตำแหน่งของงานศิลปะและศิลปินในสังคมและสภาพแวดล้อมอีกด้วย เหงียนใช้วัตถุหลากหลายในงานของเธอ ทั้งวิดีโอและภาพถ่ายที่เธอถ่ายเอง อีกทั้งวัสดุที่มาจากแหล่งต่างๆ เช่น ภาพจากสื่อ วิดีโอขององค์กร และหนังคลาสสิกการทำงานของเธอได้ทำให้เธอข้ามผ่านขอบเขตระหว่างงานภาพยนตร์และศิลปะวีดิทัศน์ และระหว่างการแสดงผลงานศิลปะและศิลปะการแสดงไปได้ เธอยังเข้าร่วมแสดงผลงานในนิทรรศการนานาชาติต่างๆ อาทิ LIM DIM (Stenersen Museum, นอร์เวย์ พ.ศ. 2552), Kuandu Biennale (ไต้หวัน, 2553), No Soul For Sale 2 (Tate Modern อังกฤษ, 2553), Women in Between: Asian Women Artists 1984-2012 (Fukuoka Asian Art Museum ญี่ปุ่น, 2555), และ Move on Asia: Video Art in Asia 2002 to 2012 (ZKM Museum of Contemporary Art เยอรมัน, 2556) ปัจจุบันเหงียนอาศัยอยู่ในฮานอย และในปี พ.ศ. 2552 ได้ก่อตั้งและดูแล Hanoi DOCLAB ซึ่งเป็นศูนย์กลางของภาพยนตร์สารคดี และภาพเคลื่อนไหว www.facebook.com/mediaartkitchen mediaartkitchen.tumblr.com

Value of Transregional/Transnational Comparative Scholarship with Paul Amar and Paulo Pinto
 
02:00:38
Paul Amar, Associate Professor, Global & International Studies Program, University of California, Santa Barbara, and Paulo Pinto, Director of the Center for Middle East Studies at the Fluminense Federal University, Niteroi, Brazil, will be speaking on the “Value of Transregional / Transnational Comparative Scholarship.” Why does work that crosses between the Middle East and Latin America (specifically Brazil) raise questions and develop methods that are uniquely productive and illuminating? Amar and Pinto will focus on how they began to develop this network in Rio in 2003 and how it has developed, as well as speaking to their specific fields of anthropology, political science and global studies. Paul Amar will present on “Queer Encounters between Brazil and the Middle East: Geopolitics, Gender and Political Culture as an Emerging ‘Tropical Superpower’ faces the aftermath of the Arab Spring.” Paulo Pinto will present on “Diasporic Allegiances, the Political Mobilization of the Syrian-Lebanese Community in Brazil and the Syrian Civil War.” Paulo Pinto will speak on the Syrian-Lebanese presence in Brazil, created by several waves of immigration, which started in the late nineteenth century and continued, albeit in much reduced numbers, until today. The Syrian immigrants and their descendants usually tried to connect their identities to larger Arab nationalistic frameworks, creating and affiliating themselves to Syrian-Lebanese and/or Arab institutions, rather than simply Syrian ones. However, the ongoing civil war in Syria has triggered an unprecedented political mobilization of this population, including the generations born and raised in Brazil, around specific Syrian issues. While one would expect that communities who experienced a transition to democracy thirty years ago would support the Syrian uprising, most of Syrian diasporic organizations in Brazil and Argentina have shown an unconditional support to the Ba‘thist regime. Based on ethnographic fieldwork on religious and ethnic associations, interviews with diaspora leaders and organizations’ members, as well as on the organizations’ material and history, our paper aims to understand the political positioning of the Syria-Lebanese immigrants and their descendants in Brazil, as well as to unveil how Bashar el Assad’s government has tried to capitalize this support as some sort of transnational political capital in order to strengthen his position both inside Syria and in the international arena.

It is linked to the Roman Empire and with Medieval Western Christendom which emerged from the Middle Ages to experience such transformative episodes as the Renaissance, the Reformation, the Enlightenment, the Industrial Revolution, scientific revolution, and the development of liberal democracy. The civilizations of Classical Greece and Ancient Rome are considered seminal periods in Western history; a few cultural contributions also emerged from the pagan peoples of pre-Christian Europe, such as the Celts and Germans, as well as some significant religious contributions derived from Judaism and Hellenistic Judaism stemming back to Second Temple Judea, Galilee, and the early Jewish diaspora; and some other Middle Eastern influences. Christianity and Roman Catholicism has played a prominent role in the shaping of Western civilization, which throughout most of its history, has been nearly equivalent to Christian culture. (There were Christians outside of the West, such as China, India, Russia, Byzantium and the Middle East). Western civilization has spread to produce the dominant cultures of modern Americas and Oceania, and has had immense global influence in recent centuries in many ways. Following the 5th century Fall of Rome, Western Europe entered the Middle Ages, during which period the Catholic Church filled the power vacuum left in the West by the fall of the Western Roman Empire, while the Eastern Roman Empire (or Byzantine Empire) endured in the East for centuries, becoming a Hellenic Eastern contrast to the Latin West. By the 12th century, Western Europe was experiencing a flowering of art and learning, propelled by the construction of cathedrals and the establishment of medieval universities. Christian unity was shattered by the Reformation from the 16th century. A merchant class grew out of city states, initially in the Italian peninsula (see Italian city-states), and Europe experienced the Renaissance from the 14th to the 17th century, heralding an age of technological and artistic advance and ushering in the Age of Discovery which saw the rise of such global European Empires as those of Spain and Portugal. The Industrial Revolution began in Britain in the 18th century. Under the influence of the Enlightenment, the Age of Revolution emerged from the United States and France as part of the transformation of the West into its industrialised, democratised modern form. The lands of North and South America, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand became first part of European Empires and then home to new Western nations, while Africa and Asia were largely carved up between Western powers. Laboratories of Western democracy were founded in Britain's colonies in Australasia from the mid-19th centuries, while South America largely created new autocracies. In the 20th century, absolute monarchy disappeared from Europe, and despite episodes of Fascism and Communism, by the close of the century, virtually all of Europe was electing its leaders democratically. Most Western nations were heavily involved in the First and Second World Wars and protracted Cold War. World War II saw Fascism defeated in Europe, and the emergence of the United States and Soviet Union as rival global powers and a new "East-West" political contrast. Other than in Russia, the European Empires disintegrated after World War II and civil rights movements and widescale multi-ethnic, multi-faith migrations to Europe, the Americas and Oceania lowered the earlier predominance of ethnic Europeans in Western culture. European nations moved towards greater economic and political co-operation through the European Union. The Cold War ended around 1990 with the collapse of Soviet imposed Communism in Central and Eastern Europe. In the 21st century, the Western World retains significant global economic power and influ ...

mm2 tour (1028) RMS Titanic sinking 鐵達尼號 沉沒 泰坦尼克號 奧林匹克級郵輪
 
00:43
RMS Titanic (/taɪˈtænɪk/) was a British passenger liner that sank in the North Atlantic Ocean in the early morning of 15 April 1912, after colliding with an iceberg during her maiden voyage from Southampton to New York City. Of the 2,224 passengers and crew aboard, more than 1,500 died, making it one of the deadliest commercial peacetime maritime disasters in modern history. The largest ship afloat at the time it entered service, the RMS Titanic was the second of three Olympic class ocean liners operated by the White Star Line, and was built by the Harland and Wolff shipyard in Belfast. Thomas Andrews, her architect, died in the disaster. Under the command of Edward Smith, who went down with the ship, Titanic carried some of the wealthiest people in the world, as well as hundreds of emigrants from Great Britain and Ireland, Scandinavia and elsewhere throughout Europe seeking a new life in North America. A high-power radiotelegraph transmitter was available for sending passenger "marconigrams" and for the ship's operational use. Although Titanic had advanced safety features such as watertight compartments and remotely activated watertight doors, there were not enough lifeboats to accommodate all of those aboard due to outdated maritime safety regulations. Titanic only carried enough lifeboats for 1,178 people—slightly more than half of the number on board, and one third of her total capacity. After leaving Southampton on 10 April 1912, Titanic called at Cherbourg in France and Queenstown (now Cobh) in Ireland before heading west to New York.[2] On 14 April, four days into the crossing and about 375 miles (600 km) south of Newfoundland, she hit an iceberg at 11:40 p.m. ship's time. The collision caused the ship's hull plates to buckle inwards along her starboard side and opened five of her sixteen watertight compartments to the sea; the ship gradually filled with water. Meanwhile, passengers and some crew members were evacuated in lifeboats, many of which were launched only partially loaded. A disproportionate number of men were left aboard because of a "women and children first" protocol for loading lifeboats.[3] At 2:20 a.m., she broke apart and foundered—with well over one thousand people still aboard. Just under two hours after Titanic sank, the Cunard liner RMS Carpathia arrived at the scene, where she brought aboard an estimated 705 survivors. The disaster was greeted with worldwide shock and outrage at the huge loss of life and the regulatory and operational failures that had led to it. Public inquiries in Britain and the United States led to major improvements in maritime safety. One of their most important legacies was the establishment in 1914 of the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS), which still governs maritime safety today. Additionally, several new wireless regulations were passed around the world in an effort to learn from the many missteps in wireless communications—which could have saved many more passengers.[4] The wreck of Titanic, first discovered over 70 years after the sinking, remains on the seabed, split in two and gradually disintegrating at a depth of 12,415 feet (3,784 m). Since her discovery in 1985, thousands of artefacts have been recovered and put on display at museums around the world. Titanic has become one of the most famous ships in history; her memory is kept alive by numerous works of popular culture, including books, folk songs, films, exhibits, and memorials. 鐵達尼號(英語:RMS Titanic,中國大陸譯作泰坦尼克號[1])是一艘奧林匹克級郵輪,於1912年4月處女航時撞上冰山後沉沒。鐵達尼號是同級的3艘超級郵輪中的第2艘,與姐妹船奧林匹克號和不列顛號一度為白星航運公司的乘客們提供快速且舒適的跨大西洋旅行。[2] 鐵達尼號由位於北愛爾蘭貝爾法斯特的哈蘭·沃爾夫船廠興建,是當時最大的客運輪船,由於其規模相當一艘現代航空母艦,因而號稱「上帝也沉沒不了的巨型郵輪」。在鐵達尼號的處女航中,從英國南安普敦出發,途經法國瑟堡-奧克特維爾以及愛爾蘭昆士敦,計劃橫渡大西洋前往美國紐約市。但因為人為錯誤,於1912年4月14日船上時間夜裡11點40分撞上冰山;2小時40分鐘後,即4月15日凌晨02點20分,船裂成兩半後沉入大西洋,死亡人數超越1500人,堪稱20世紀最大的海難事件,同時也是最廣為人知的海難之一。

Its ten provinces and three territories extend from the Atlantic to the Pacific and northward into the Arctic Ocean, covering 9.98 million square kilometres (3.85 million square miles), making it the world's second-largest country by total area. Canada's southern border with the United States is the world's longest bi-national land border. Its capital is Ottawa, and its three largest metropolitan areas are Toronto, Montreal, and Vancouver. As a whole, Canada is sparsely populated, the majority of its land area being dominated by forest and tundra. Consequently, its population is highly urbanized, with over 80 percent of its inhabitants concentrated in large and medium-sized cities, many near the southern border. Canada's climate varies widely across its vast area, ranging from arctic weather in the north, to hot summers in the southern regions, with four distinct seasons. Various indigenous peoples have inhabited what is now Canada for thousands of years prior to European colonization. Beginning in the 16th century, British and French expeditions explored, and later settled, along the Atlantic coast. As a consequence of various armed conflicts France ceded nearly all of its colonies in North America in 1763. In 1867, with the union of three British North American colonies through Confederation, Canada was formed as a federal dominion of four provinces. This began an accretion of provinces and territories and a process of increasing autonomy from the United Kingdom. This widening autonomy was highlighted by the Statute of Westminster of 1931 and culminated in the Canada Act of 1982, which severed the vestiges of legal dependence on the British parliament, except for the power to amend its constitution. Canada is a federal parliamentary democracy and a constitutional monarchy, with Queen Elizabeth II being the head of state. The country is a realm within the Commonwealth of Nations, a member of the Francophonie and officially bilingual at the federal level. It ranks among the highest in international measurements of government transparency, civil liberties, quality of life, economic freedom, and education. It is one of the world's most ethnically diverse and multicultural nations, the product of large-scale immigration from many other countries. Canada's long and complex relationship with the United States has had a significant impact on its economy and culture. Canada is a developed country and has the fifteenth-highest nominal per capita income globally as well as the tenth-highest ranking in the Human Development Index. Its advanced economy is the tenth-largest in the world, relying chiefly upon its abundant natural resources and well-developed international trade networks. Canada is part of several major international and intergovernmental institutions or groupings including the United Nations, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, the G7 (formerly G8), the Group of Ten, the G20, the North American Free Trade Agreement and the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum.

The Antarctic Peter I Island and the sub-Antarctic Bouvet Island are dependent territories and thus not considered part of the kingdom. Norway also lays claim to a section of Antarctica known as Queen Maud Land. Norway has a total area of 385,252 square kilometres (148,747 sq mi) and a population of 5,312,300 (as of August 2018). The country shares a long eastern border with Sweden (1,619 km or 1,006 mi long). Norway is bordered by Finland and Russia to the north-east, and the Skagerrak strait to the south, with Denmark on the other side. Norway has an extensive coastline, facing the North Atlantic Ocean and the Barents Sea. King Harald V of the Dano-German House of Glücksburg is the current King of Norway. Erna Solberg became prime minister in 2013 and was reelected in September 2017. Erna Solberg replaced Jens Stoltenberg who was the prime minister between 2000 and 2001 and 2005–2013. A unitary sovereign state with a constitutional monarchy, Norway divides state power between the Parliament, the cabinet and the Supreme Court, as determined by the 1814 Constitution. The kingdom was established as a merger of a large number of petty kingdoms. By the traditional count from 872, the kingdom has existed continuously for 1,145 years, and the list of Norwegian monarchs includes over sixty kings and earls. From 1537 to 1814, Norway was a part of the Kingdom of Denmark-Norway, and from 1814 to 1905, it was in a personal union with the Kingdom of Sweden. Norway was neutral during the first World War. Norway remained neutral until April 1940 when the country was invaded and occupied by Germany until the end of World War II. Norway has both administrative and political subdivisions on two levels: counties and municipalities. The Sámi people have a certain amount of self-determination and influence over traditional territories through the Sámi Parliament and the Finnmark Act. Norway maintains close ties with both the European Union and the United States. Norway is a founding member of the United Nations, NATO, the European Free Trade Association, the Council of Europe, the Antarctic Treaty, and the Nordic Council; a member of the European Economic Area, the WTO, and the OECD; and a part of the Schengen Area. Norway maintains the Nordic welfare model with universal health care and a comprehensive social security system, and its ...

As the most populous city in the province, the 2016 census recorded 631,486 people in the city, up from 603,502 in 2011. The Greater Vancouver area had a population of 2,463,431 in 2016, making it the third-largest metropolitan area in Canada. Vancouver has the highest population density in Canada with over 5,400 people per square kilometre, which makes it the fifth-most densely populated city with over 250,000 residents in North America behind New York City, Guadalajara, San Francisco, and Mexico City according to the 2011 census. Vancouver is one of the most ethnically and linguistically diverse cities in Canada according to that census; 52% of its residents have a first language other than English. Roughly 30% of the city's inhabitants are of Chinese heritage. Vancouver is classed as a Beta global city. Vancouver is consistently named as one of the top five worldwide cities for livability and quality of life, and the Economist Intelligence Unit acknowledged it as the first city ranked among the top-ten of the world's most well-living cities for five consecutive years. Vancouver has hosted many international conferences and events, including the 1954 British Empire and Commonwealth Games, UN Habitat I, Expo 86, the World Police and Fire Games in 1989 and 2009; and the 2010 Winter Olympics and Paralympics which were held in Vancouver and Whistler, a resort community 125 km (78 mi) north of the city. In 2014, following thirty years in California, the TED conference made Vancouver its indefinite home. Several matches of the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup were played in Vancouver, including the final at BC Place.The original settlement, named Gastown, grew up on clearcuts on the west edge of the Hastings Mill logging sawmill's property, where a makeshift tavern had been set up on a plank between two stumps and the proprietor, Gassy Jack, persuaded the curious millworkers to build him a tavern, on July 1, 1867. From that first enterprise, other stores and some hotels quickly appeared along the waterfront to the west. Gastown became formally laid out as a registered townsite dubbed Granville, B.I. ("B.I" standing for "Burrard Inlet"). As part of the land and political deal whereby the area of the townsite was made the railhead of the Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR), it was renamed "Vancouver" and incorporated shortly thereafter as a city, in 1886. By 1887, the Canadian Pacific transcontinental railway was extended westward to the cit ...

It became the 45th state admitted to the U.S. on January 4, 1896. Utah is the 13th-largest by area, 31st-most-populous, and 10th-least-densely populated of the 50 United States. Utah has a population of more than 3 million according to the Census estimate for July 1, 2016. Urban development is mostly concentrated in two areas: the Wasatch Front in the north-central part of the state, which contains approximately 2.5 million people; and Washington County in Southern Utah, with over 160,000 residents. Utah is bordered by Colorado to the east, Wyoming to the northeast, Idaho to the north, Arizona to the south, and Nevada to the west. It also touches a corner of New Mexico in the southeast. Approximately 62% of Utahns are reported to be members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church), making Utah the only state with a majority population belonging to a single church. This greatly influences Utahn culture and daily life. The LDS Church's world headquarters is located in Salt Lake City.The state is a center of transportation, education, information technology and research, government services, mining, and a major tourist destination for outdoor recreation. In 2013, the U.S. Census Bureau estimated that Utah had the second fastest-growing population of any state. St. George was the fastest-growing metropolitan area in the United States from 2000 to 2005. Utah also has the 14th highest median average income and the least income inequality of any U.S. state. A 2012 Gallup national survey found Utah overall to be the "best state to live in" based on 13 forward-looking measurements including various economic, lifestyle, and health-related outlook metrics.

It borders the U.S. states of Massachusetts to the south, New Hampshire to the east, New York to the west, and the Canadian province of Quebec to the north. Vermont is the second-smallest by population and the sixth-smallest by area of the 50 U.S. states. The state capital is Montpelier, the least populous state capital in the United States. The most populous city, Burlington, is the least populous city to be the most populous city in a state. As of 2015, Vermont was the leading producer of maple syrup in the United States. It was ranked as the safest state in the country in 2016.For thousands of years indigenous peoples, including the Mohawk and the Algonquian-speaking Abenaki, occupied much of the territory that is now Vermont and was later claimed by France's colony of New France. France ceded the territory to Great Britain after being defeated in 1763 in the Seven Years' War. Thereafter, the nearby colonies, especially the provinces of New Hampshire and New York, disputed the extent of the area called the New Hampshire Grants to the west of the Connecticut River, encompassing present-day Vermont. The provincial government of New York sold land grants to settlers in the region, which conflicted with earlier grants from the government of New Hampshire. The Green Mountain Boys militia protected the interests of the established New Hampshire land grant settlers against the newly arrived settlers with land titles granted by New York. Ultimately, a group of settlers with New Hampshire land grant titles established the Vermont Republic in 1777 as an independent state during the American Revolutionary War. The Vermont Republic partially abolished slavery before any of the other states. Vermont then became the fourteenth state to be admitted to the newly established United States in 1791. Vermont ...

Its ten provinces and three territories extend from the Atlantic to the Pacific and northward into the Arctic Ocean, covering 9.98 million square kilometres (3.85 million square miles), making it the world's second-largest country by total area. Canada's southern border with the United States is the world's longest bi-national land border. Its capital is Ottawa, and its three largest metropolitan areas are Toronto, Montreal, and Vancouver. As a whole, Canada is sparsely populated, the majority of its land area being dominated by forest and tundra. Consequently, its population is highly urbanized, with over 80 percent of its inhabitants concentrated in large and medium-sized cities, many near the southern border. Canada's climate varies widely across its vast area, ranging from arctic weather in the north, to hot summers in the southern regions, with four distinct seasons. Various indigenous peoples have inhabited what is now Canada for thousands of years prior to European colonization. Beginning in the 16th century, British and French expeditions explored, and later settled, along the Atlantic coast. As a consequence of various armed conflicts France ceded nearly all of its colonies in North America in 1763. In 1867, with the union of three British North American colonies through Confederation, Canada was formed as a federal dominion of four provinces. This began an accretion of provinces and territories and a process of increasing autonomy from the United Kingdom. This widening autonomy was highlighted by the Statute of Westminster of 1931 and culminated in the Canada Act of 1982, which severed the vestiges of legal dependence on the British parliament, except for the power to amend its constitution. Canada is a federal parliamentary democracy and a constitutional monarchy, with Queen Elizabeth II being the head of state. The country is a realm within the Commonwealth of Nations, a member of the Francophonie and officially bilingual at the federal level. It ranks among the highest in international measurements of government transparency, civil liberties, quality of life, economic freedom, and education. It is one of the world's most ethnically diverse and multicultural nations, the product of large-scale immigration from many other countries. Canada's long and complex relationship with the United States has had a significant impact on its economy and culture. Canada is a developed country and has the fifteenth-highest nominal per capita income globally as well as the tenth-highest ranking in the Human Development Index. Its advanced economy is the tenth-largest in the world, relying chiefly upon its abundant natural resources and well-developed international trade networks. Canada is part of several major international and intergovernmental institutions or groupings including the United Nations, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, the G7 (formerly G8), the Group of Ten, the G20, the North American Free Trade Agreement and the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum.

Ukrayina; Ukrainian pronunciation: [ukrɑˈjinɑ]), sometimes called the Ukraine, is a country in Eastern Europe. Excluding Crimea, Ukraine has a population of about 42.5 million, making it the 32nd most populous country in the world. Its capital and largest city is Kiev. Ukrainian is the official language and its alphabet is Cyrillic. The dominant religions in the country are Eastern Orthodoxy and Greek Catholicism. Ukraine is currently in a territorial dispute with Russia over the Crimean Peninsula, which Russia annexed in 2014. Including Crimea, Ukraine has an area of 603,628 km2 (233,062 sq mi), making it the largest country entirely within Europe and the 46th largest country in the world. The territory of modern Ukraine has been inhabited since 32,000 BC. During the Middle Ages, the area was a key centre of East Slavic culture, with the powerful state of Kievan Rus' forming the basis of Ukrainian identity. Following its fragmentation in the 13th century, the territory was contested, ruled and divided by a variety of powers, including Lithuania, Poland, Austria-Hungary, the Ottoman Empire and Russia. A Cossack republic emerged and prospered during the 17th and 18th centuries, but its territory was eventually split between Poland and the Russian Empire, and finally merged fully into the Russian-dominated Soviet Union in the late 1940s as the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic. In 1991 Ukraine gained its independence from the Soviet Union in the aftermath of its dissolution at the end of the Cold War. Before its independence, Ukraine was typically referred to in English as "The Ukraine", but most sources have since moved to drop "the" from the name of Ukraine in all uses.Following its independence, Ukraine declared itself a neutral state; it formed a limited military partnership with Russia and other CIS countries while also establishing a partnership with NATO in 1994. In 2013, after the government of President Viktor Yanukovych had decided to suspend the Ukraine-European Union Association ...
