Top 10 Countries with Highest Uranium Production
Welcome to Top10Archive! We live in a day and age where nuclear power is becoming a common need for daily life. In 2011, the Key World Energy Statistics found that 10% of the world's electricity was provided via nuclear power plants; but what, ultimately, fuels these plants to provide power? All across the globe, uranium mines gather the natural resource used as the basis of all nuclear power; and while many countries contribute to the mining of uranium, these 10 countries provide the highest amount per year, based on tonnes mined in 2013.

10 Poorest Countries in the World
The Top 10 Poorest Countries in the World Number 10: Afghanistan Almost 50% of the population survive on less than $1.00 per day. Afghanistan has made its way to being the 10th poorest country in the world due to war and no exports being traded with this troubled country. Number 9: Madagascar The 4th largest island in the world, Madagascar, is a beautiful country with hundreds of animals/plants that are only found on the island. Tourism could be an enormous asset for the economy of Madagascar but with the constant political turmoil that industry has nose-dived. The average person survives on $1.00 per day. Number 8: Malawi Malawi depends on outside assistance to survive. The poverty level is astounding. Hundreds die every day from hunger and dehydration. People eat ants, beetles, and raw fish. 17 million people live in Malawi. Child abuse and other human rights observations have been documented. Number 7: Niger Niger is ranked last on the United Nations Human Development Index. It is a landlocked country with little access to education, poor healthcare, and extreme poverty. Niger receives over 80% of its budget in aid from foreign countries. Number 6: Central African Republic #6 on the list has huge potential to be one of richest due to having resources available such as uranium and diamonds but unfortunately it is one of the poorest. The income per capita is only $400 per year! Number 5: Eritrea A small country in the horn of Africa, Eritrea has a wide variety of natural resources at its disposal. From gold and silver to marble. Even a country so rich in resources can be poor. Its political structure and infrastructure is non-existent. Travel and movement around the country is extremely difficult without efficient roads. Number 4: Liberia Illegal poaching of endangered species, widespread disease/famine, pollution, political corruption, and many other negative actions contribute to Liberia being the 4th poorest country in the world. Number 3: Burundi Since 1970 there have been 2 mass genocides in Burundi that left millions dead. Burundi is decades behind the rest of the world in regards to communication and technology and there is little access to education. AIDS is widespread and only 2% of the population has a bank account. Coffee and tea are their main exports but not enough is produced to maintain a steady cash flow. Number 2: Zimbabwe Zimbabwe is a country with a high crime rate as well as being one of the poorest in the world. Political corruption, human rights violations, mass murders of those that oppose the government---it all makes up the cocktail that leads to its #2 position on the countdown. Number 1: The 11th largest country in the world (by area) and home to over 75 million people. Congo is also the world’s poorest country. It is a country rich in natural resources, however, there is no political stability and at least some portion of the country has been engaged in civil war since the 1960s. The healthcare system is non-existent and disease and famine wipe out an estimated 47,000 people every month. Time for the question of the day: Considering all that is just terrible and awful in parts of some of these poor poor countries, would you ever consider hitting a life savings of $200K and just moving to one of these countries and living like a king for the rest of your life?

10 NATIONS That WILL NOT EXIST in 2115 — TopTenzNet
It can often seem as though nations are permanent fixtures on the landscape, immovable, unchangeable, and enduring. If history has taught us one thing, it’s that nations are perfectly capable of disappearing. A number of top countries disappeared in the 20th century alone, including nations such as Astro-Hungary, the Ottoman Empire, and superpower U.S.S.R. Anyone expecting the 21st century to be any kinder is liable to be surprised. Here are some well known nations that (probably) won’t exist in 2115. 9. The Netherlands It’s easy to imagine tropical nations disappearing into the Pacific. What is less easily imagined is the loss of a European Nation to climate change. Never-the-less, this is not only realistic, but in fact quite probable. Known as much for its dikes as for being the place to go for legal drugs and prostitutes, much of the Netherlands is below sea level. Unlike Kiribati, it is not simply rising sea levels that threatens the Netherlands. An extremely modern nation with a powerful economy, the Netherlands can well afford to continue expanding its dikes upwards to keep rising seas out. The real problem is that the same dikes that can keep the sea out can keep flooding in. With half the nation at or below one meter above sea level, the Netherlands has been constantly fighting to keep its head above water. In 1953, A massive storm slammed into the Netherlands and neighboring Belgium. Floods as deep as five-and-a-half meters deep swept the southern parts of the country. Only the careful use of a ship to plug a dike prevented the flooding of North Holland, the second most heavily populated province. With many scientists predicting that previously “safe” Europe could soon be struck with frequent “Hurricane Katrina” level storms, we’d book our Amsterdam holiday today if we were you. 6. Taiwan Taiwan is in an interesting position. While many people are aware of the fact that China insists Taiwan is still a part of China, what they don’t tend to recall is that Taiwan says the exact same thing. The only real debate between the two is which government is the legitimate one, the pre-WWII Republic of China government seated in Taiwan or the post war People’s Republic of China in Beijing. Regardless of the politics, the fact is that, in terms of actual operation, Taiwan is a wholly independent nation, and has acted as such ever since Chang Kai-shek led his Kuomintang government to Taiwan in 1949. Despite its own insistence it is not, it maintains diplomatic nations with many of the world’s nations, it maintains its own military (purchasing heavily from trade partner America), it has a democratically elected government that has unchallenged rule over the island. It walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck… Still, the fact that both Taiwan and China insist that Taiwan is just part of China goes a long way to removing the island’s nationhood. Events over time have further eroded this position, such as the UN’s kicking Taiwan out and giving China the empty seat in 1971. While there are some within Taiwan calling for an official declaration of independence, the official government stance still calls for eventual reunion with mainland China, and only 24% of the population responded favorably to independence during a January poll. As such it is only a matter of time before Taiwan returns to the fold. →Subscribe for new videos every day! http://bit.ly/toptenzsubscribe →10 Reasons Bruce Lee was a Superhuman: http://bit.ly/1Hl4mVu Entertaining and educational top 10 lists from TopTenzNet!

5 Places That Are Lawless!
A place can be lawless for many reasons. For example it may never have been inhabited and therefore never needed laws, or the establishment collapsed and the people took control. Although lawless places are hard to find they do exist. In this list we'll be showing you 5 places that are lawless. We would like to give a big shoutout to viewer josh beresford for suggesting this video. ------------------------------------------------------- Music: "Unwritten Return" Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ ------------------------------------------------------- 5) Antarctica As one of the few places on Earth that lacks anything resembling a government, Antarctica is of course going to make it onto this list. It has no permanent population, just a few scientists who stay for a few months for research. Therefore Antarctica is just a big empty ice cube, with essentially no laws. Technically speaking you could move there, build yourself a mansion, and no body would realistically bother to do anything. However if you started murdering people, you could be taken back to your country of origin & punished. Although kind of lawless, it does have some restrictions. Many countries in the past have tried to claim Antarctica, since the continent does have natural resources. However anything useful is buried so deep below thick ice, it's not economically viable to own. The Antarctic Treaty System outlaws any country trying to claim it, and essentially agrees that Antarctica is devoted to peace and science. Also no military presences of any country is allowed. 4) Central African Republic Although technically speaking it has laws & if you break them you should be punished. Many laws however are just not enforced. You see the government has lost control of its people. Gangs, warlords, & thugs roam the streets & do whatever they feel like with no consequences from the government. Police officers also act as an independent gang & do whatever they like too. The situation has got so bad, the government itself advises foreigners to stay away for their own safety. So while technically speaking its not lawless, but if laws are not enforced, it looses its power as a law. An example to better understand this is if you had a $20 bill, but no shop or person in the world would accept it as currency, although it's technically money, it loses it's value & becomes worthless. 3) International Waters No country itself has claim or can enforce a law in international waters however most countries will punish you if they catch you doing something illegal. For example you cant just get caught killing random people in international waters & expect nothing to happen. If Maritime law govern ships catch you they can take you back to their originating country & punish you under their law. However with that being said, smaller crimes that are not so serious most likely won't be pursued. Also open waters make up about three quarters of the planet, this means a lot of illegal activity happens out there that goes unnoticed & is therefore never punished. 2) Outer Space Obviously the idea of one person going to space is ridiculous, it's still technically an area which is lawless. Now you'd never be allowed to actually build a space shuttle & launch yourself into space, they would lock you up before you even put your space helmet on, but just hypothetically if you somehow managed to do it, you'd have complete & utter freedom. However if you ever decided to return to earth, you most likely would be arrested. What your punishment would be is very difficult to say as its obviously never happened before. In fact you'd probably get a job at NASA for managing to build your own space shuttle. Since no one nation can claim any part of space, if any individual went there, you can do what you want. There wouldn't be much you could do and certainly no country would ever bother trying to catch you. 1) The Deep Web It's not a place you can physically go, instead the deep web is an un-indexed part of the world wide web where anything goes. It's lawless in the sense you can buy drugs, guns, order a hit on someone & do all sorts of crazy stuff, but of course if you get caught, you're still going to be punished by the laws in your country. However if the deep web was a actual place you could physically visit, then it would be lawless. A place where whatever you want to do you can do, and no body in that area would stop you. So while its debatable if it should even be on this list as one would argue its not an area, however the world as we know it is becoming more and more digital. Despite being something you can not touch, it presents the same threats as any other place which is lawless.

The Most Beautiful Places in the World
Top 10 of the most breathtaking places on this planet that you need to visit. Subscribe to our channel: http://goo.gl/9CwQhg Other Videos You Might Like The Most Dangerous Airports In The World https://youtu.be/jC-V4E-XviI Recent Discoveries That Could Change Our Past https://youtu.be/eQfUSmGy1_A Description: As the old saying goes, “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder”, which means that we all have a different interpretation of beauty in the human race. What may be beautiful to one person may not translate to someone else. However, we have also been molded and shaped by society and the media to perceive certain things as beautiful such as the human body and elements of nature. But today, in the hustle and bustle in the world, it can be easy to miss something that is extraordinarily beautiful right in our own backyard. So in this case, it is pretty easy to track down some of the most beautiful places in the world and come to a consensus. Will it be an agreed list by everyone on the Internet? Of course not, but despite personal opinion, it doesn’t change the aesthetic of the beautiful place. There are various requirements (that are all of course subjective) to make a location beautiful. It could be an innovation of man that took place there, or it could be the result of Mother Nature as an artist. Natural beauty is regarded higher than artificial beauty, as it has a different flair and element. The internet has dedicated lists of beautiful places that must be seen before you die, or before you settle down and your traveling greatly reduces. There are also people who have dedicated their lives searching the earth for the most beautiful places, and have made careers over researching and photographing these locations. While we may think we have discovered everything about this planet, it would be highly egotistical to think that we have located every gorgeous location. So, the list in this video may very well be different in a year or two! What is ironic that while some people may consider historical locations to be the most beautiful, others may feel that the location is overrated, a waste of money, or not worth the excursion. There are various expectations of these locations that are established long before a visit. People expect for their souls to be changed, to be standing in awe of their beauty, the size of the location being larger than life, and other various expectations. Sometimes, it is just best to just “be” and appreciate the location for what it is, and not impose expectations or standards just to satisfy our own spiritual needs. Whether you expect to stand in awe, or see God for the first time, one can anticipate that witnessing a beautiful and famous place in person is enough of an experience to change one’s life. The sad part is that not everyone will have the lifetime or the budget to travel the world to see these places, but thanks to media and photography, one can admire and appreciate a location’s beauty from afar. From man-made to ecological locations, this video contains ten of the most beautiful places in the world. If you disagree, or you have more gorgeous locations to share with us, please let us know in the comments.

Top 10 Countries Using Green Energy In 2015
10. France: In France, there is a combination of diverse kinds of renewable energy at the heart of every busy and hushed machine. Nuclear and hydroelectric types of vigor are assessed to afford 80% of the country’s bases of energy. With low oil at home, the French management sought to be the number one manufacturer of nuclear energy in Europe, and it prospered. 9. Belgium: Belgium has a influential energy system that is assembly the most out of accepted resources. Wind and sun are the largest resources that benefit this land. Their solar florae went viral all over the world. They were developed by Alexander Dang who cast-off the solar energy in his kinetic art and merged motor and solar cells in his floras. The flowers translate the light of the sun into power. 8. Finland: What used to be impairment in the way of the Finnish development in the field of resolving the pollution difficulty, namely the cumulative emission of CO2 in the air is just about to reach its end. This has enthused the country 5 steps up. It is significant to mention that Finland’s major energy basis is the thermal type. 7. Austria: Though Austria is contingent on energy introductions, it is working hard to decrease this and become a independent country. It is trying to attain this goal finished making use of the solar energy. 6. Canada: Canada has a mix of vigor resources that has aided to raise it to this place. The hydroelectric energy brands up more than 59% of the country’s energy sources. Second to it is the thermal energy with index of 21.9%, then the nuclear-powered energy that hits 13%. 5. Denmark: With a whole lack of coal, the country is a tiger in the oil manufacture. It has about 123 million tons just in standby, wow! Other capitals vary amongst gas and the thermal energy. 4. UK: With 400 million tons of oil standby, UK’s manufacture has weakened badly and it is fronting big glitches in the field of energy. It has not lost its location as the fourth country by creation use of renewable energy. Really, it is green energy that is serving it to flourish. With over 70% of its energy keen to the thermal part and 18% to nuclear energy. 3. Norway: With a GDP per capita of closely 42% and a small populace on the tremendously wide green lawns, Norway is one of the unlikeliest countries in the world that has a 0% bad poverty rate. Beside with the lawns there are also the giant seas that border them and even the ice bergs are all natural resources which Norwegians are shrewd enough to make the greatest use of. Most of the energy consequently comes from natural resources, specifically the water. 2. Switzerland: The Swiss administration has accomplished to keep itself at the top of the list with maintainable sources of energy. It is tremendously significant to reference that Switzerland has no oil, gas or coal assets and the number one basis of energy in the country is the hydroelectric that totals 52.6% tracked by the nuclear energy with 41.6% . 1. Sweden: This progressive position of Sweden did not come out of the azure. The country has deliberate everything that eats energy down even the metros and trams. The amount one energy source in this nation is the hydroelectric trailed by the nuclear energy.

Top 10: Richest Countries 2015
Background Music: Cleric - Happy day loop 10. United States I am sure that you are surprised to see the United States to be so low on this list. You probably thought it would hold the top spot on every list including this one. The reason we include the United States is because it holds the largest national economy in the worl and is home to some of the most technologically-advanced products and natural resources. Its estimated GDP per capita (PPP) as we enter 2015 is $53,001. 9. Switzerland We continue this top ten list with a West European country – Switzerland. Not only is it one of the richest countries in the world, but it is also highly ranked in terms of offering the best quality of life. This means that people who stay to live in the country enjoy satisfactory and comfortable life. As well, it has one of the most stable economies and the diverse source of income in the country is banking, agriculture, and tourism. It is well known for manufacturing the finest watches and is currently ranked the 15th largest exporter. The GDP per capita (PPP) in this country is approximately $53,977 as we enter 2015. 8. San Marino The source of income for this small country is tourism and banking. It faces some challenges by international pressure to improve the transparency of its banking systems. Because of the low tax rates, many multinational corporations are enthusiastic to set up their businesses here. As we enter 2015, San Marino’s GDP (PPP) is estimated at $62,766. 7. United Arab Emirates This oil-rich country enters the top ten list of richest countries for 2015 at no. 7. The discovery of oil in UAE has transformed this poverty-stricken country into one of the richest countries almost three decades. International conglomerates are attracted to do business in UAE because of its zero-tax policy. The economy is very much also dependent on tourism and natural gas production. The expected GDP per capita for 2015 is $63,181 (PPP). 6. Norway This Nordic country arrives at number 6 with a GDP per capita of approximately $64,363. Its economy predominately relies on oil, natural gases, seafood, minerals, hydropower, fresh water, as well as agricultural products. The population is relatively health and the economy is stable. The country, like many others on the list, is run by a constitutional monarchy. 5. Kuwait Kuwait is another oil producing country in the world and is mainly the reason why it is so high on this top ten list. The GDP (PPP) per capita in Kuwait is estimated at $70,785. It is a popular destination for immigrants of neighbouring Arab countries. The reason is because Kuwait has a strong and stable economy and is politically stable. The quality of life in this country is also extremely high. 4. Brunei Brunei enters this list as number 4 with a GDP (PPP) per capita estimated at $73,823. Brunei is one of the smallest countries in the world in terms of area and only has a population of 416,717 people. Natural gas and crude oil represent 90% of its GDP. Being rich in Brunei allows the country to avoid debt and extreme poverty. 3. Singapore Unlike Brunei Darussalam, Singapore is not wealthy because of its natural resources. The city-state has emerged as a global financial hub and well positioned to continue taking advantage of the rise of Chinese and Southeast Asian wealth in the next few years. Singapore has also pushed into electronics and tech, and even with exports projected to fall in 2015, the country is still immersing itself in foreign investment. Even with weaknesses both domestic and foreign, the country’s economy is projected to rise by another 3% this year. As we enter the new year, the GDP (PPP) per capita is estimated at $78,762. 2. Luxembourg One of Luxembourg’s biggest assets in avoiding Europe’s economic crisis is its low taxes — and status as a tax haven. The small country between France and Germany offers the second-lowest overall corporate tax rate among EU and European free-trade-agreement-bound countries, according to the Financial Times, and it brings in more than 10% of global foreign direct investment. The GDP (PPP) per capita in Luxembourg is approximately $90,333 making it the 2nd richest country in the world. 1. Qatar With a GDP per capita of $145,894 (PPP), Qatar will undoubtedly top this top ten list of richest countries in the world, yet again. It has a lot of natural oil and petroleum reserves, and most of its income is dependent on these goods. It also has a very well diversified economy with some of the best economic sectors being the pearl mining sector as well as the transportation industry, more specifically the air transportations sector. To increase its citizens’ living standards, the ruling royal family has set a strategy on no tax for the people’s income. As well, it has open trading policies with the world’s largest economy, the United States, a very significant factor inn their wealth.
Farming the Desert - Transform Desert in Green (Africa)
Farming the Desert - Transform Desert in Green (Africa) "The necessity to continue support for agriculture and grazing is essential. Farmers must be aware of good seeds and ploughing equipment. The presence of the millet mill will ease the burden of women who serve their families, prepare meals, ensure education for their children and clean the house constantly because of the sand that makes way everywhere. Malouma, head of the Women's Committee of Wabonde in Southern Mauritania, her head, wrapped in flamboyant scarf, sips her tea while reading off a list of village needs. And in a country where silence and patience are synonymous with austerity and hospitality, listening is crucial. The desertification and degradation of natural resources were also threatening arable lands in South-West Mauritania, where entire villages faced multiple challenges to sustainable management of natural resources and environmental problems. As the best conditions to protect crops from environmental and climatic hazards were not in place, farmers and villagers were reluctant to invest in agriculture. But without producing enough food, their livelihoods were under the constant threat of food insecurity. Copyright © 2007-2015 Taj Agro (Taj agro products Mumbai.,. All rights reserved.

7 Facts about Andorra
Somewhere in Europe there is a tinie, tiny country. But where is Andorra? Find out in the next few minutes. ------------------------------------------------ Watch the entire series here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLbZJ71IJGFRTa_XMM9a4hDh2Yo9CsZzOR Follow: https://plus.google.com/+blinder00 https://twitter.com/Sebastian2Go https://www.facebook.com/official7facts ------------------------------------------------ In this brief video you can find seven little known facts about Andorra , the fourth smallest country in the world. Lodged between Spain and France, it is the only place that has catalan as it’s official language. It is also one of the richest and happiest nations on the planet. More information about the video content bellow: 1. Andorra has never been in a war in almost 1,000 years. Given its non-strategic location in the Pyrenees Mountains and lack of natural resources, Andorra has been without conflict almost since Charlemagne came through to fight the Moors. Technically, Andorra did declare war on Germany in WWI but never sent anyone into the conflict. Given Andorra’s lack of participation in WWI they were forgotten about in the Treaty of Versailles and didn’t officially declare peace with Germany until 1957. 2. Andorra's weather is perfect. Out of each year the country commonly receives 300 days of sunshine. Combined with it’s mountainous landscape, it makes the perfect tourist destination. But you better book the hotel in time. 3. Andorra is a small country with an area of approximately 181 square miles(468 square kilometres) and a population of about 85,000 people. Their Entire Population Could Fit Into Wembley Stadium. As a result Andorra la Vella, the capital, is one of the most peacefull important european cities. 4. Shopping in Andorra is a blessing. It's independence from the E.U. allows it to be a tax haven. There is no income tax here and so tourists are attracted to the luxury items for sale in the exclusive boutiques and outlet stores. There is a sports equipment store and designer label retailer on practically every block. 5. People in Andorra can expect to live 83 years. Researchers believe there are several reasons they live so long. Andorra is a wealthy country. People are educated and have good jobs. The country has clean water, medical care and few diseases. People in Andorra also eat a healthy diet of fruit, vegetables, fish, grains and nuts. 6. Andorra's airport is nowhere to be found. The tiny country has no airports and no rail system, but possesses an excellent road system. And helipads for private helicopters. 7. By law the male head of each family in Andorra is required to own a gun in case of attack or emergency. ------------------------------------------------ More info: http://everything-everywhere.com/2011/06/30/8-things-you-might-not-have-known-about-andorra/ http://www.goal.com/en/news/1717/editorial/2009/06/09/1314557/english-angle-five-things-you-didnt-know-about-andorra http://davidsbeenhere.com/2012/05/08/five-facts-about-andorra/ http://www.funtrivia.com/en/Geography/Andorra-9679.html Music: Radio 92 – 35 MPH http://freemusicarchive.org/ Images: http://mapsof.net/map/andorra-flag-map https://peacequilt.wordpress.com/tag/escaldes-andorra/ http://www.peacedayphilly.org/ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wildlife_of_Andorra http://www.airportia.com/andorra/andorra-la-vella-airport/photo/26498874/Andorra_la_Vella_Andorra_Summer_09 http://www.panamericanworld.com/en/article/panama-gives-colombia-week-remove-it-tax-haven-list http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Andorra_in_Europe_%28-rivers_-mini_map%29.svg http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Andorra_in_Europe_%28-rivers_-mini_map%29.svg http://ea.md/super-varstnicii-vezi-secretul-oamenilor-care-raman-vioi-la-minte-pana-la-adanci-batraneti/ https://www.bupaglobal.com/international-health-insurance http://www.virtualtourist.com/travel/Europe/Andorra/Transportation-Andorra-MISC-BR-2.html http://gomadnomad.com/2011/10/28/gonzo-tourism-in-andorra/ http://www.afunimages.com/funny-people-guns/funny-people-in-the-guns-8/ http://www.a-human-right.com/dependonothers.html

5 Of The Worst Dictators In History!
A dictatorship is a political system where one ruler rules the land and people usually by oppression, force and intimidation. Essentially only the few people at the very top benefit. In this list we'll be showing you 5 of the worst dictators in history. We would like to give a big shoutout to viewers ADDICTEDGAMERHD & Gabriel Hernandez for suggesting this video. ------------------------------------------------------- Music: "Unwritten Return" Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ ------------------------------------------------------- 5) Hideki Tojo - Death Toll 5 million. Hideki Tojo was a general in the Imperial Japanese Army but he also got the position of Prime Minister, Army Minister, Home Minister, Foreign Minister, Education Minister & Commerce Minister between 1940 to 1944. He made ties with the Nazis hoping that he would rise to power alongside Hitler. He also relentlessly started attacking other Asian countries, killing about 5 million people in the process. When the war ended, the extent of his war crimes became clear. He was tried and found guilty of waging wars of aggression, wars in violation of international law, and waging unprovoked war against many countries. He was hung on December 23rd, 1948 at the age of 63. 4) Leopold II of Belgium - Death Toll 2 - 15 million. Leopold II was the King of the Belgians between 1865 to 1909. He truly believed that in order to make his country great he must colonize other countries overseas. However Belgium as a population disagreed and really didn't care about colonizing any country. He started a company called the International African Association, which made out to be a humanitarian, loving organisation that wants to help people in central Africa. In reality it was just a front so he can steal their land, natural resources & rule over it. He then forced the native people into forced labor & slavery, working on a highly profitable rubber industry where he bagged all the cash. He abused, mutilated & killed the workers who couldn't meet this production quotas or in any way objected to what he was doing. Roughly 10 - 15 million Africans died under his brutal rule, and he was never tried or put to justice for what he did. 3) Adolf Hitler - Death Toll 17 million. At first he gained support from the German people, as he promised to make Germany great again and his anti-semitic values weren't too obvious at first. Once in power Germany slowly realized they may have made a huge mistake. He was extremely power hungry, hated Jews with a passion and essentially wanted to be the biggest and baddest ruler the world has ever seen. This shows in just some of the military weapons he ordered to be made. The end result was the death of about 17 million civilians, 6 million of whom were Jews, and the rest were Polish, Hungarians, Russians, French, Slovakians, and even Germans. 2) Josef Stalin - Death Toll 23 million. Josef Stalin was the first Secretary of the Communist Party from 1922 – 1953. After Vladimir Lenin’s death in 1924, he became the leader of the Soviet Union. He launched a new economy that basically left millions without food. About 2.6 - 10 million Ukrainians died from starvation. It is widely accepted he did this on purpose as an attack on Ukrainian nationalism. During the late 1930's Stalin launched another initiative called the Great Purge. It was a paranoid campaign to kill off the people who opposed him, and his targets were often executed. In 1939 Stalin agreed to a non-aggression pact with the Nazis which meant no military action would be taken against the two nations for at least 10 years. Germany violated the pact, the Soviet Union joined the allies, and they racked up 23.9 million civilian deaths, although many experts believe the figure can be as high as 50 million. 1) Mao Zedong - Death Toll 49 - 78 million. Mao Zedong was a Chinese revolutionary, political theorist, and communist leader who led the People’s Republic of China. During his first five years from 1949 – 1953 he is said to have systematically killed between 4 to 6 million people by sentencing them to die or by sending them to reform through labor camps. He organized mass repressions, established execution quotas, and defended his actions in these early years as necessary for securing power for “The People’s Republic of China”. He then focused on trying to make China a premier exporter of steel. Citizens had to make smelting shops in their backyards, but there was no steel to produce. The steel had very little value so they got no money and about 20 million people starved to death. Finally he decided to ask the people how he should rule China. About half a million people came forward and gave their suggestions. Suddenly Mao had a change of heart and killed them as they were considered to be “dangerous thinkers”.

More information about the video content bellow: 1. One of the wealthiest people on earth, the Sultan of Brunei, Hassanal Bolkiah, has a collection of thousands of luxury cars, including Lamborghinis, Porsches, Rolls Royces, Ferraris, Jaguars, BMWs, Bentleys and Mercedes-Benzes and a palace (Istana Nurul Iman) that has more than 1700 rooms, including 257 bathrooms. 2. Brunei is the second smallest nation in South East Asia after Singapore. With an area of 5,766 square kilometers, the country consists of two unconnected parts and they are divided into four districts. 3. Lots of countries can enjoy a visa-free travel in Brunei, like – all European countries, United States, Iceland, Malaysia, New Zealand, Norway, UAE, Singapore, Philippines, Thailand, etc. Israelis however are not allowed to enter Brunei. Keep in mind that Brunei is almost as expensive as Singapore, twice as expensive as Malaysia. 4. The durian fruit, native to Brunei, is infamous because of its taste, which is like “vomit, sewage, turpentine, and roasted almond”. The fruit is also used as an ingredient in rice, soups, candies, and desserts. The thick woody husk is also used to smoke fish. Also, a kind of carnivorous plant called Low’s Pitcher plant (Nepenthes lowii) is an endemic species of plant in the island of Borneo and at Mount Bukit Pagen. 5. It is a legendary fact that Brunei was founded by Awang Alak Betatar. When he first found Brunei, he called out “Baru nah!”, which means “that’s it!”, and that is how Brunei formed its name. 6. The tiny state of Brunei has one of the world's highest standards of living thanks to its bountiful oil and gas reserves. The population enjoys generous state handouts and pay no taxes. On the other hand, in 2014 Brunei became the first East Asian country to adopt strict Islamic sharia law which allows punishment such as stoning for adultery and amputation for theft. 7. Bandar Seri Begawan is the capital city of Brunei. It is home to the Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddien Mosque, which has 28 domes, and the seat of the Brunei government , the Istana Nurul Iman , which is the largest residential palace in the world according to Guinness World Records.

Sahara Morocco tours
Sahara Morocco tours - Sahara Morocco trip Travel Videos HD, World Travel Guide http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=World1Tube The Western Sahara is a disputed territory in the Maghreb region of North Africa, bordered by Morocco to the north, Algeria to the extreme northeast, Mauritania to the east and south, and the Atlantic Ocean to the west. Its surface area amounts to 266,000 square kilometres (103,000 sq mi). It is one of the most sparsely populated territories in the world, mainly consisting of desert flatlands. The population is estimated at just over 500,000, of whom nearly 40% live in El Aaiún (also spelled Laâyoune), the largest city in Western Sahara. Occupied by Spain since the late 19th century, the Western Sahara has been on the United Nations list of non-self-governing territories since 1963 after a Moroccan demand.[4] It is the most populous territory on that list, and by far the largest in area. In 1965, the UN General Assembly adopted its first resolution on Western Sahara, asking Spain to decolonise the territory. One year later, a new resolution was passed by the General Assembly requesting that a referendum be held by Spain on self-determination. In 1975, Spain relinquished the administrative control of the territory to a joint administration by Morocco (which had formally claimed the territory since 1957) and Mauritania.[6] A war erupted between those countries and the Sahrawi national liberation movement, the Polisario Front, which proclaimed the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic (SADR) with a government-in-exile in Tindouf, Algeria. Mauritania withdrew in 1979, and Morocco eventually secured effective control of most of the territory, including all the major cities and natural resources. Since a United Nations-sponsored ceasefire agreement in 1991, two thirds of the territory (including most of the Atlantic coast line)[8] has been controlled by Morocco and the remainder by the SADR, strongly backed by Algeria.[9] Internationally, countries such as the United States and Russia have taken a generally ambiguous and neutral position on each side's claims, and have pressed both parties to agree on a peaceful resolution. Both Morocco and Polisario have sought to boost their claims by accumulating formal recognition, essentially from African, Asian, and Latin American states in the developing world. The Polisario Front has won formal recognition for SADR from 53 states, and was extended membership in the African Union. Morocco has won recognition or support for its position from several African governments and from most of the Arab League. In both instances, recognitions have, over the past two decades, been extended and withdrawn according to changing international trends.[citation needed] As of 2006, no other member state of the United Nations has recognized Moroccan sovereignty over Western Sahara.

Political Ideology: Crash Course Government and Politics #35
So today Craig is going to look at political ideology in America. We're going to focus on liberals and conservatives and talk about the influencers of both of these viewpoints. Now, it's important to remember that political ideologies don't always perfectly correspond with political parties, and this correspondence becomes less and less likely over time. So, sure we can say that Democrats tend to be liberal and Republicans tend to be conservative, but we're not going to be talking about political parties in this episode. It's also important to note, that there are going to be a lot of generalizations here, as most peoples' ideologies fall on a spectrum, but we're going to try our best *crosses fingers* to summarize the most commonly held viewpoints for each of these positions as they are used pretty frequently in discussions of American politics.

Nuclear ash: How US wanted to destroy USSR
The US National Security Archive has declassified a list of the nuclear targets, which had to be hit in 1959 in case of war. Among those targets are the USSR, countries of the Eastern Europe, and China. The US planned to make use of nuclear weapons in order to decrease military and industrial potential of the USSR, as well as for purposeful mass murder of the Soviet citizens. The hit list comprises a category titled as 'Population'. Only in Moscow the American military pointed out 179 targets to be hit with bombs in case of war. William Burr, a senior analyst for the National Security Archive at George Washington University said that the declassified list of the US Air Force's targets is the most detailed one among those that had been published. Matthew G. McKinzie, the director of the nuclear program at the Natural Resources Defense Council noted that, 'the United States then had a huge advantage over the Soviet Union, with a nuclear arsenal about 10 times as big Check more of our videos on our video channel http://www.youtube.com/user/PravdaTV Go to Pravda.Ru website to read articles that you can not read in Western publications http://english.pravda.ru/

gray wolf populations by country - Video Learning - WizScience.com
The global wolf population is estimated at 400,000. Once abundant over much of North America and Eurasia, the gray wolf inhabits a smaller portion of its former range because of widespread destruction of its habitat, human encroachment of its habitat, and the resulting human-wolf encounters that sparked broad extirpation. Considered as a whole, however, the gray wolf is regarded as being of least concern for extinction according to the International Union for the Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources. Today, wolves are protected in some areas, hunted for sport in others, or may be subject to extermination as perceived threats to people, livestock and pets. Wolves tend to have difficulty adapting to change, and are often referred to as an indicator species; a species delineating an ecoregion or indicating an environmental condition such as a disease outbreak, pollution, species competition or climate change. Wolves do not seem to be able to adapt as readily to expanding civilization the way coyotes do. While human expansion has seen an increase in the latter's numbers, it has caused a drop in those of the former. Europe, excluding Russia, Belarus and Ukraine, has 12,000 wolves in over 28 countries. Greenland has a population of 20-100 wolves which are afforded protection in approximately 90% of their range, though no compensation is paid for livestock damage. Portugal has a stable wolf population of 200-300 which is afforded full protection. Compensation is paid for livestock damage. Wiz Science™ is "the" learning channel for children and all ages.

Top 10 Largest Cities or Towns of Malaysia
Thanks for watching.... 1. Kuala Lumpur 2. Johor Bahru 3. Ipoh 4. Shah Alam 5. Petaling Jaya 6. Kuching 7. Kota Kinabalu 8. Kuala Terengganu 9. Malacca City 10. Alor Setar Music : Piri Piri,Jingle Punks; YouTube Audio Library Malaysia is a federal constitutional monarchy located in Southeast Asia. It consists of thirteen states and three federal territories and has a total landmass of 329,847 square kilometres (127,350 sq mi) separated by the South China Sea into two similarly sized regions, Peninsular Malaysia and East Malaysia (Malaysian Borneo). Peninsular Malaysia shares a land and maritime border with Thailand and maritime borders with Singapore, Vietnam, and Indonesia. East Malaysia shares land and maritime borders with Brunei and Indonesia and a maritime border with the Philippines. The capital city is Kuala Lumpur, while Putrajaya is the seat of the federal government. In 2010 the population was 28.33 million, with 22.6 million living in Peninsular Malaysia. The southernmost point of continental Eurasia, Tanjung Piai, is in Malaysia, located in the tropics. It is one of 17 megadiverse countries on earth, with large numbers of endemic species. Malaysia has its origins in the Malay Kingdoms present in the area which, from the 18th century, became subject to the British Empire. The first British territories were known as the Straits Settlements, whose establishment was followed by the Malay kingdoms becoming British protectorates. The territories on Peninsular Malaysia were first unified as the Malayan Union in 1946. Malaya was restructured as the Federation of Malaya in 1948, and achieved independence on 31 August 1957. Malaya united with North Borneo, Sarawak, and Singapore on 16 September 1963, with si being added to give the new country the name Malaysia. Less than two years later in 1965, Singapore was expelled from the federation. The country is multi-ethnic and multi-cultural, which plays a large role in politics. The constitution declares Islam the state religion while protecting freedom of religion. The government system is closely modelled on the Westminster parliamentary system and the legal system is based on common law. The head of state is the king, known as the Yang di-Pertuan Agong. He is an elected monarch chosen from the hereditary rulers of the nine Malay states every five years. The head of government is the Prime Minister. Since independence, Malaysia has had one of the best economic records in Asia, with GDP growing at an average 6.5% per annum for almost 50 years. The economy has traditionally been fuelled by its natural resources, but is expanding in the sectors of science, tourism, commerce and medical tourism. Today, Malaysia has a newly industrialised market economy, ranked third largest in Southeast Asia and 29th largest in the world. It is a founding member of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, the East Asia Summit and the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation, and a member of Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation, the Commonwealth of Nations, and the Non-Aligned Movement. Evidence of modern human habitation in Malaysia dates back 40,000 years. In the Malay Peninsular, the first inhabitants are thought to be Negritos. Traders and settlers from India and China arrived as early as the 1st century AD, establishing trading ports and coastal towns in the 2nd and 3rd centuries. Their presence resulted in strong Indian and Chinese influence on the local cultures, and the people of the Malay Peninsula adopted the religions of Hinduism and Buddhism. Sanskrit inscriptions appear as early as the 4th or 5th century. The Kingdom of Langkasuka arose around the 2nd century in the northern area of the Malay Peninsula, lasting until about the 15th century. Between the 7th and 13th centuries, much of the southern Malay Peninsula was part of the maritime Srivijaya empire. After the fall of Srivijaya, the Majapahit empire had influence over most of Peninsular Malaysia and the Malay Archipelago. Islam began to spread among Malays in the 14th century. In the early 15th century, Parameswara, a prince of the former Srivijayan empire, founded the Malacca Sultanate, commonly considered the first independent state in the peninsula area. Malacca was an important commercial centre during this time, attracting trade from around the region. Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malaysia

VOA Special English - African Countries Put Pressure on China
VOA Special English - VOA Learning English - African countries put pressure on China EnSub: VOA Learning English, this is the Economics Report. Ghana arrested more than 100 Chinese nationals in June. They were accused of illegally mining gold. In February, Zambia seized a Chinese operated mine because of safety concerns. And Gabon has decided to seize property from three foreign oil companies, including one from China. Some observers say these and other incidents appear to be a reaction by African governments against Chinese investment on the continent. China became Africa's top trade partner in 2009. Yet some Africans believe they are not getting enough for their exports. Bright Simons is with the IMANI group. He says China is no longer known only for giving loans and sending workers to build hospitals and roads. He says China is now a business partner. Ghana has taken steps against foreigners involved in "shallow mining" for gold. Only Ghanaians can get government approval for this kind of mining. Bright Simons says some Ghanaians "rent" the permits to foreigners who have the money and training to actually mine the gold. Observers say nations like Niger and Gabon want to get more for their natural resources. They want more money, more local jobs and better living conditions. Worldwide demand for oil, coal, iron ore and uranium has made their negotiating position stronger. Some nations are also concerned about abusive or illegal operations. In Gabon, the government says it is planning not to extend operating permits to three companies, including Addax, which is part of China's Sinopec. Many experts believe the partnership between China and Africa will continue to grow, but now perhaps on more equal terms. For VOA Learning English, I'm Laurel Bowman.

The Senegal River spreads multiple possibilities for agricultural, just as we still have untapped business such as fishing, tourism, ICT , significant reserves of natural resources and the list goes on. With all this the country still poor: We are categorized in low-income countries, the Private sector performance is poor and the external position is bad. This is due to several factors. Which include the lack of financial resources to boost the private investment.

This policy must work on the following aspects: • Acting on macroeconomic aggregates • Cleaning up the business environment (improve the country’s ranking ) • Fighting hard against corruption • Ensure the commitment of all stakeholders for the success of this vision • Ensure a deep understanding of economic and social returns of this by youth • Exploiting the opportunities of technical assistance offered by the MDBs to: This last point will: o Strength public administration capacities o Enhance the comparative advantages of the country ( o Ensure the bankability of investment projects o Find innovative financial arrangements to mitigate risks and attract capital This strategy will lead to: Entrepreneurship promotion, jobs creation and added value generation.

10 Most Beautiful First Ladies in the World
# 10 Most Beautiful First Ladies in the World : The first ladies of all countries might seem as if all they do is hold dinners, attend high-profile political events, stand with their husbands through every decision that they make and just look pretty. The truth is that depending on the countries they come from, first ladies can have a lot of work to do, most of which goes unnoticed. However, everyone understands that it is the responsibility of the first lady to make sure that her husband remains sane despite what is happening in the country, and she has to make sure that he looks great wherever he goes. One thing we can all agree is that all first ladies look beautiful every time we see them, whether they are running in a marathon, attending a social function, or when they are out with their children and family having fun. It is like it’s their duty to always look beautiful, because they are all public figures, and everything they do will be scrutinized. It is true that the first ladies have access to the best resources that the country has to offer whenever they need to buy some jewellery or have their hair done, but it is important to realize that most of these women are natural beauties. Here is a list of some of the hottest first ladies in the world, women who look so good they can make most men desire to become the president, even just for a day. Do you think there is a first lady missing in this list? 10. Dominique Ouattara (Ivory Coast) 9. Queen Jetsun Pema (Bhutan) 8. Princess Lalla Salma (Morocco) 7. Sylvia Bongo Ondimba (Gabon) 6. Queen Letizia (Spain) 5. Michelle Obama (United States) 4. Angelica Rivera (Mexico) 3. Asma al-Assad (Syria) 2. Mehriban Aliyeva (Azerbaijan) 1. Queen Rania (Jordan) Source Staff : therichest
