Special routes of U.S. Route 15

Several special routes of U. S. Route 15 exist. In order from south to north they are as follows. Business U. S. Highway 15 is a business route of U. S. Highway 15 in Hartsville, South Carolina, 6.3 miles long. It starts at US 15 outside of Hartsville, it intersects South Carolina Highway 151 Business in the center of Hartsville and South Carolina Highway 102 in North Hartsville. It ends at US 15; the entire route is in Darlington County. Established between 1960-1962 following the original mainline US 15 route through Laurinburg. US 15 Business, in concurrency with US 401 Business and US 501 Business, traverses along Main Street and Aberdeen Road; the entire route is in Scotland County. Established in 1960 as a renumbering of mainline US 15, along University Drive and Roxboro Street, through downtown Durham, it is in concurrency with US 501 Business for majority of its route and is unchanged since inception. The entire route is in Durham County. U. S. Route 15 Business is a business route of US 15 in Charlotte County.

The highway, which runs 5.93 miles between junctions with US 360 and US 15 south and north of Keysville, is concurrent with US 360 Business. US 15-360 Business follow Old Kings Highway from its southern end through a partial interchange with US 15 and US 360 to the town of Keysville; the business routes enter the town on King Street, along which the highways are concurrent with SR 40. In the center of Keysville, US 15 Business, US 360 Business, SR 40 curve north west to cross the Southern Virginia Railroad. Just west of the railroad, the business routes turn north onto Front Street. US 15-360 Business follows Four Locust Highway to rejoin their respective mainline highways at a partial cloverleaf interchange. U. S. Route 15 Business in Farmville, Virginia is a former segment of US 15 that begins at the southern end of an overlap at a diamond interchange with US 460; the route follows South Main Street directly into Farmville until the intersection with US Business Route 460 and Virginia State Route 45, turns west in its own concurrency with US BUS 460.

The US 15-460 concurrency ends when US BUS 15 terminates just north of a trumpet interchange at the north end of the mainline US 15-460 overlap, but US BUS 460 turns south an ends directly at that trumpet interchange with US 460. U. S. Route 15 Alternate in Farmville, Virginia is an alternate route of US 15 Business; the route diverges from US 15 Business at Griffin Boulevard south of downtown Farmville. It follows Griffin Boulevard north to High Street turns northwest along Oak Street, it rejoins US 460 Business just west of downtown Farmville. Like the business route in Farmville, U. S. Route 15 Business in Culpeper, Virginia is a former segment of US 15 that begins at the southern end of an overlap at a diamond interchange, but in this case, the interchange and overlap is with US 29, the mainline road turns east; the first leg of US Bus 15 is Orange Road, despite the fact that Orange Road continues past US 522 to terminate as US Business Route 29, US Bus 15 joins US 522 northwest in an overlap that meets US Bus 29, where Madion Road becomes South Main Street.

Along US Bus 15-Bus 29-522, Orange Road terminates between West Park Avenue and West and East Mason Streets. The intersection of Culpeper Street is where one can find Culpeper if you turn east and drive two blocks away. US 522 turns left on West Evans Street, while four blocks US Bus 15-29 turns east off of North Main Street onto Old James Madison Highway, which becomes Brandy Road and runs parallel to the same Amtrak line that used Culpeper Station before terminating at an interchange with the US 15-29 overlap. Brandy Road becomes Virginia Secondary Route 762. U. S. Route 15/29 Business is the former two-lane route of US 15/US 29 through the town of Remington, bypassed in 1975, it begins in Culpeper County where the bypass curves to the north, while US 15/29 Bus. heads northeast on Remington Road to a 1930 pony truss bridge over the Rappahannock River. Crossing the bridge into Fauquier County, it soon enters Remington, where it is known as James Madison Street; the principal intersection in Remington is with Main Street, which heads west to the bypass and east to Sumerduck.

After leaving Remington, US 15/29 Bus. travels north and returns to mainline US 15/29 about 1⁄2 mile south of SR 28. River Road, which intersects US 15/29 Bus. north of the Rappahannock, is the pre-1930 alignment of US 15. The original bridge is long-gone. U. S. Route 15 Business in Warrenton, Virginia is U. S. Business Route 17 and U. S. Business Route 29, at least at the southern end. After James Madison Highway becomes Shirley Avenue, US Bus 15 leaves this concurrency at Falmouth Street, while US BUS 17-29 continues to the northwest. Two blocks after serving as the western terminus of State Route 643, Falmouth Street intersects Mockingbird Lane and curves west to become Main Street, which runs through the heart of historic Downtown Warrenton; as Main Street terminates at the corner of U. S. Business Route 211, US Bus 15 turns north in a concurrency with US BUS 211. US BUS 15-211 follows Alexandria Pike north until they move onto Blackwell Road before encountering at U. S. 211-Bus 29 where US 211 and US BUS 211 terminates, Blackwell Road becomes State Route 672, US BUS 15 turns east on BUS 29 before terminating at an interchange with the northern end of the US 15-17-29 overlap.

Yarlung Tsangpo Grand Canyon

The Yarlung Tsangpo Grand Canyon or Yarlung Zangbo Grand Canyon or the Tsangpo Canyon, Brahmaputra Canyon or Tsangpo Gorge, along the Yarlung Tsangpo River in Tibet Autonomous Region, China, is the deepest canyon in the world, at 504.6 kilometres is longer than the Grand Canyon in the United States, making it one of the world's largest. The Yarlung Tsangpo originates near Mount Kailash and runs east for about 1,700 kilometres, draining a northern section of the Himalayas before it enters the gorge just downstream of Pei, near the settlement of Zhibe; the canyon has a length of about 240 kilometres as the gorge bends around Mount Namcha Barwa and cuts its way through the eastern Himalayan range. Its waters drop from about 2,900 metres near Pei to about 1,500 metres at the end of the Upper Gorge where the Po Tsangpo River enters; the river continues through the Lower Gorge to the Indian border at an elevation of 660 metres. The river enters Arunachal Pradesh and becomes the Brahmaputra; as the canyon passes between the peaks of the Namcha Barwa and Gyala Peri mountains, it reaches an average depth of about 5,000 m around Namcha Barwa.

The canyon's average depth overall is about 2,268 m, the deepest depth reaches 6,009 m. This is the deepest canyon on land; this part of the canyon is at 29.769742°N 94.989853°E / 29.769742. Namcha Barwa, 7,782 m high, is at 29°37′33″N 95°03′26″E, Gyala Peri, at 7,234 m, is at 29°48′48″N 94°58′02″E; the gorge has a unique ecosystem with species of animals and plants explored and affected by human influence. Its climate ranges from subtropical to Arctic; the highest temperature in Tibet is 43.6 °C and is recorded near the border of India at about 600 metres above sea level. The rare takin is one of the animals hunted by the local tribes. Western interest in the Tsangpo began in the 19th century when British explorers and geographers speculated where Tibet's east-flowing Tsangpo ended up, suspecting the Brahmaputra. Since British citizens were not allowed to enter Tibet they recruited Indian “pundits” to do the footwork. Kinthup from Sikkim entered the gorge near Gyala. In 1880 Kinthup was sent back to test the Brahmaputra theory by releasing 500 specially marked logs into the river at a prearranged time.

His British boss Captain Henry Harman posted men on the Dihang-Brahmaputra to watch for their arrival. However, Kinthup was sold into slavery and ended up employed at a monastery. On three leaves of absence he managed to craft the logs, send a letter from Lhasa with his new intended schedule, send off the logs. Four years had passed, his note to alert the British got misdirected, his boss had left India, nobody checked for the appearance of the logs. In 1913, Frederick Marshman Bailey and Henry Morshead launched an expedition into the gorge that confirmed that the Tsangpo was indeed the upper Brahmaputra. Frank Kingdon-Ward started an expedition in 1924 in hopes of finding a major waterfall explaining the difference in altitude between the Tsangpo and the Brahmaputra, it turned out that the gorge has a series of steep sections. Among them was a waterfall he not as big as he had hoped; the area was closed after China invaded Tibet and disputed the location of the border in the Sino-Indian War. The Chinese government resumed issuing permits in the 1990s.

Since the gorge has been visited by kayakers. It has been called the “Everest of Rivers” because of the extreme conditions; the first attempt was made in 1993 by a Japanese group. In October 1998 an expedition sponsored by the National Geographic Society attempted to kayak the entire gorge. Troubled by unanticipated high water levels, it ended in tragedy. In January–February 2002 an international group with Scott Lindgren, Steve Fisher, Mike Abbott, Allan Ellard, Dustin Knapp, Johnnie and Willie Kern completed the first full descent of the upper Tsangpo gorge section; the largest waterfalls of the gorge were visited in 1998, by a team consisting of Ken Storm, Hamid Sarder, Ian Baker and their Monpa guides. They estimated the height of the falls to be about 33 metres; the falls and rest of the Pemako area are sacred to Tibetan Buddhists who had concealed them from outsiders including the Chinese authorities. In 2005 Chinese National Geography named them China's most beautiful waterfalls. There are two waterfalls in this section: Rainbow Falls at 29.777164°N 95.183406°E / 29.777164.

While the government of the PRC has declared the establishment of a "Yarlung Tsangpo Grand Canyon National Reservation", there have been governmental plans and feasibility studies for a major dam to harness hydroelectric power and divert water to other areas in China. The size of the dam in the Tsongpo gorge would exceed that of Three Gorges Dam as it is anticipated that such a plant would generate 50,000 megawatts electricity, more than twice the output of Three Gorges, it is feared that there will be displacement of local populations, destruction of ecosystems, an impact for downstream people in India and Bangladesh. The project is criticized by India because of its p

The vomic was first announced in the September 2008 issue of Ribon; the English version published by Viz Media received positive reviews. Leroy Douresseaux of the Comic Book Bin gave the volume a B+, noting that it is, "It is lighthearted fun as only Tanemura can do it." Carlo Santos of Anime News Network noted that it was too short, but that, "it's still a fun take on the ESPer action-adventure genre—and the handful of in-jokes for American readers nudge it up to a B." Matthew Warner of Mania.com gave the volume a B, calling it a "tad generic," but an "interesting read." Karen Maeda of Sequential Tart was not so favorable, giving the volume a 5 out of 10 and suggesting that readers stick to other Tanemura works, as Mistress Fortune can be "too unrealistic and weird to want to bother with."

The School Library Journal listed Mistress Fortune as one of "39 Graphic Novels that Kids Can't Resist," suggesting it for grades 6-8. Mistress Fortune at Anime News Network's encyclopedia Mistress Fortune At Viz Media

Fazl-e-Haq Khairabadi

Fazl-e-Haq was one of the main poets of the Indian Muslim Freedom fighters of 1857. He was a philosopher, an author, a poet, a religious scholar, but is most remembered for issuing a fatwa of armed fighting in favor of Jihad against the British empire in 1857. Fazl-e-Haq was born into a family of Indian Muslims, his father was the chief advisor to the Mughals regarding religious matters. He became a teacher by age 13. In 1828, he was appointed to the position of Mufti in the Department of Qaza. Shortly after the Indian Rebellion of 1857 failed, he was covered by an amnesty and was arrested by the British authorities on 30 January 1859 at Khairabad for inciting violence, he was tried and found guilty of encouraging murder and role in the'Jihad'. He defended himself, his arguments and the way he defended his case was so convincing that the presiding magistrate was writing a judgement to exonerate him, when he confessed to giving the fatwa, declaring that he could not lie. He was sentenced for life to the prison at Kalapani on Andaman Island, his property was confiscated by the Judicial Commissioner, Awadh Court.

He reached Andaman on 8 October 1859 aboard the Steam Frigate "Fire Queen". He would remain imprisoned there until his death in 1861. Besides being a scholar of Islamic studies and theology, he was a literary persona of Urdu and Persian literature. More than 4,00 couplets in Arabic are attributed to him, he edited the first diwan of Mirza Ghalib on his request. He memorized the Qur ` an in a little over 4 months, he has completed the curriculum in Arabic and religious studies by the age of thirteen. On account of his deep knowledge and erudition he was called Allama and was venerated as a great Sufi, he was bestowed with the title Imam hikmat and Kalaam. He was considered the final authority on issuing religious rulings, he possessed a great presence of mind and was witty. There are many stories about his repartee with Mirza Ghalib and other contemporary eminent poets and intellectuals, he and his son Abdul al-Haq Khairabadi established Madrasa Khairabad in northern India, where many scholars got educated.

He wrote Risala-e-Sauratul Hindia in Arabic language, wrote an account of the Rebellion called As-Saurat al Hindiya. He wrote that, according to the Qur’an and Hadith, the prophet Muhammad is the final prophet, there can be no other prophet or "messenger" after him. To believe that there can be another Muhammad would necessitate that Allah did something apart from what He has stated in the Qur’an, that is, that Allah has lied. Lying is a flaw and it is impossible for Allah to have a flaw; this reflects his deep insight to the political and religious environment, emerging with the growing influence of Englishmen and at last capture of Delhi by them. He was Farooqui. One of his sons, Abdul Haque, was a leading and respected scholar and was given the title of Shamsul Ulema, his grandson is Muztar Khairabadi. Jan Nisar Akhtar is his great-grandson. Fazl-e-Haq Khairabadi died on 20 August 1861.
