Krasnodar International Airport
Krasnodar International Airport known as Pashkovsky Airport, is the main airport serving the southern Russian city of Krasnodar. It is an international airport, is located 12 km east of the centre of Krasnodar city. Krasnodar International Airport is the 9th busiest airport in Russia. In 2015, it handled more than 3.1 million passengers. The airport is a part of Basel Aero airport managing holding; until the end of 2012 it was the operating hub of Kuban Airlines. Krasnodar International Airport has three runways that can accommodate modern aircraft, such as Boeing-737, Boeing 757, Airbus A319, Airbus A320, Embraer 195, as well as helicopters of all types; the airport’s capacity is 500 passengers per hour for domestic flights and 200 passengers per hour for international flights. In the terminal building, there are VIP and CIP lounges, as well as shops, pharmacies. Wi-Fi access is provided. In 1932, Krasnodar United Air Group was established; that year seven Po-2 Aerial Pest Control Agency aircraft landed near the central office of Pashkovsky state farm.
In late 1932, the Agency was reorganized. It was used as a basis for the formation of Pashkovsky air base, which in late 1933 was moved to the aerodrome used by the present-day Krasnodar airport. In 1934, the air base was reorganized into the 218 Civil Aviation Pashkovsky Special Air Group; the majority of Po-2 aircraft were re-equipped into passenger carriers. Scheduled passenger flights were performed from Krasnodar to Maikop, Anapa, etc. In 1941-1945, during World War II, the aircraft of the Special Air Squadron of Krasnodar Airline transported ammunition and POL to the battle-front and carried out medevac missions. In 1946, the airport started accommodating Li-2 aircraft. In 1960, construction of the first concrete runway was completed. Flights performed by Il-18 aircraft commenced in Krasnodar airport. Construction of a two-story passenger terminal was completed later. Scheduled passenger and cargo flights to domestic destinations performed using Аn-10, Il-18, Аn-12 aircraft. In 1962, scheduled passenger service with Тu-124 aircraft was launched.
In 1964, Krasnodar United Air Group within the structure of the North Caucasian Civil Aviation Authority was formed. That year, the Group acquired its own fleet of Аn-24 aircraft. In 1981, Yak-42 aircraft was put into operation. In 1984, the second concrete runway was put into operation. In 1993, Krasnodar United Air Group within the structure of the North Caucasian Civil Aviation Authority was restructured into OJSC Kuban Airlines, which comprised an air carrier and an airport. In 2006, OJSC Kuban Airlines was restructured through the spinoff of two of its entities, namely OJSC Krasnodar International Airport and OJSC Kuban Air Transport Territorial Agency. 20 December is the birthday of Krasnodar International Airport. In 2007, Russian Transportation Ministry included the airport in its list of 12 international hubs on the territory of the Russian Federation. Today, the airport is of strategic importance to Russia as its southern air gates, it is used by over 30 airlines flying to 62 destinations.
Krasnodar International Airport is undergoing revamp, divided into two parts: construction of a new 60,000 m2 airport building, scheduled to be completed in 2017, the modernization of the aerodrome infrastructure. The latter includes runway revamp, construction of a ramp, engineering installations and upgrade of the equipment to provide safe and high-quality aircraft handling. Basel Aero managing the project of the new terminal building has picked up Dutch NACO, one of the world's leading independent airport consultancy and engineering firms, to develop the new airport’s master plan. According to NACO, annual passenger traffic of the new terminal will reach 10 million passengers in 2030. Within the period of design and construction of the new Krasnodar airport, the area of the existing terminal is to be expanded by 8 200 sq m; as a result, the airport’s capacity will increase up to 1,700 passengers per hour. In August 2013, reconstruction of the international terminal was commenced. According to the design, the number of check-in counters will increase to 8, immigration control counters to 10, an additional baggage carousel is to be installed.
Besides, a children playground will be constructed within the terminal building. The Krasnodar airport reconstruction project involves the domestic terminal building; the renovated terminal buildings are to be put into operation in late 2014.

The Konkan Railway is operated by Konkan Railway Corporation Limited, headquartered at CBD Belapur in Navi Mumbai, Maharashtra. The first passenger train ran on Konkan railway tracks on 20 March 1993 between Mangalore. During its initial years of operation in the mountainous Konkan region, a spate of accidents prompted Konkan Railway to investigate new technologies; the anti-collision devices, the Sky Bus and RORO are a few of the innovations from Konkan Railway. It was the missing link between Mumbai and Mangalore, Karnataka and the southwestern coastal cities of India; the 741 km line connects Maharashtra and Karnataka states in India. The first train on the completed track was flagged off on January 26, 1998, the Republic Day of India; until the Konkan Railway started its operations, the two important port cities Mangaluru and Mumbai were not directly connected by the railway network. People would travel by trains running through inland India via Bengaluru-Belagavi-Pune route. In the mid-twentieth century, people travelling to Mumbai from Mangaluru and adjoining areas would go to Kadur or Birur by bus and catch a train to Mumbai.
In the 1970s National Highway 17 was built to connect these cities by road. Although the brainchild of veteran parliamentarian from Ratnagiri, Nath Pai M. P. national leaders such as Madhu Dandavate and George Fernandes, who hailed from the Konkan played a major role in the conception of Konkan Railway. In 1966, a line was constructed between Diva in Panvel in Raigad district. During the tenure of Madhu Dandavate, this was extended up to Roha in 1986 to serve the industries located in the area. At the same time, works on Mangalore-Thokur line took impetus. However, the missing link from Roha to Mangaluru still remained. In October 1984, the Ministry of Railways decided to take a final location engineering-cum-traffic survey for the west coastal portion from Surathkal to Madgaon - a total distance of 525 km. In March 1985, the railways decided to extend the scope of their survey to include the omitted length of the west coast line extending from Madgaon to Roha; the Southern Railway was entrusted with this final location survey.
They submitted the project report for this route to the Railway Ministry in 1988 and named it as the Konkan Railway. Drawing up their plans in an office, E. Sreedharan's team had yet to realise what kind of terrain they would have to battle, though some surveys had been conducted, there was no data for the entire stretch in Maharashtra – a route which involved half the length of the line. Besides, the task was formidable. With a total number of over 2,000 bridges and 91 tunnels to be built through this mountainous terrain containing many rivers, it was the biggest and the most difficult railway engineering project on the Indian subcontinent at the time. A major challenge in the area was land acquisition as c. 43,000 landowners had to be negotiated with. But though land-related lawsuits are common in the Konkan, when KRCL began persuading people to give up property that had belonged to their families for generations, many gave it up voluntarily, convinced of the importance of the project; this enabled the entire process to be completed in just a year.
There were challenges posed by the elements. Flash floods and tunnel collapses affected work at many places on the project; the region was thickly forested, construction sites were plagued by wild animals. Despite these problems, work on the project continued, an effective system of decentralisation enabled better efficiency; the entire stretch of 740 kilometres was divided into seven sectors - Mahad, Kudal, Karwar, Udupi - of 100 km each, headed by a Chief Engineer. This route passing through 3 major states, Goa & Karnataka, each state accepted to bear few part of financial funding; the authorised share capital was raised in 1996-97 from Rs 600 crore to Rs 800 crore, with the government of India taking a 51 per cent share, while the rest went to Maharashtra, Karnataka and Goa. So far, the corporation has only received Rs 746.40 crore by way of paid-up capital. Contracts for the project were awarded to some of the biggest and most reputed construction firms in India, including Larsen & Toubro, Gammon India and AFCONS.
To enable quicker construction, several innovative practices were adopted. Piers for major bridges were cast on the riverbanks itself and launched using cranes mounted on pontoons; the technique of incremental launching of bridge spans was used for the first time in India. Since it would take too long to complete the project using locally available tunnelling technology, nine hydraulic tunnelling machines were imported from Sweden in order to bore through the hard rock of the Sahayadris; the biggest challenge, came from the nine tunnels that had to be bored through soft soil. No technology existed anywhere in the world for this purpose and the work had to be carried out through a painstakingly slow manual process. Excavation was impossible due to the clayey soil, saturated with water owing to a high water table in the region. Several times tunnels collapsed after they had been dug, necessitating work to be redone. Nineteen lives and four years were lost while constructing the soft soil tunnels alone.
In all, seventy-four people perished during the construction of the line. Like most other major projects in India, the Konkan Railway was not without its share of controversies; the biggest one arose in the state of Goa, comprising 105 kilometres of the route, where serious concerns were raised about the environmental and economic impact
Grand Duke Konstantin Konstantinovich of Russia
Grand Duke Konstantin Konstantinovich of Russia was a grandson of Emperor Nicholas I of Russia, a poet and playwright of some renown. He wrote under the pen name "K. R.", initials of his given name and family name, Konstantin Romanov. The fourth child of the Grand Duke Konstantin Nikolayevich of Russia and his wife Princess Alexandra of Saxe-Altenburg, KR was born in the Constantine Palace, Saint Petersburg, his eldest sister Grand Duchess Olga married King George I of the Hellenes in 1867. From his early childhood KR was more interested in letters and music than in the military upbringing required for Romanov boys; the Grand Duke was sent to serve in the Imperial Russian Navy. KR was unsatisfied, left the navy to join the elite Izmailovsky Regiment of the Imperial Guard, where he served with distinction. KR was both an artist in his own right. A talented pianist, the Grand Duke was Chairman of the Russian Musical Society, counted Tchaikovsky among his closest friends, but KR was foremost a man of letters.
He founded several Russian literary societies. He translated foreign works into Russian, was proud of his Russian translation of Hamlet. An accomplished poet and playwright, KR took great interest in the direction of his plays; the Grand Duke appeared in his last play, "King of Judea," playing the role of Joseph of Arimathea. The Grand Duke's artistic slavophilism and devotion to duty endeared him to both Alexander III and Nicholas II; the former appointed KR as President of the Russian Academy of Sciences, as Chief of All Military Colleges. He was made an honorary member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences in 1902, with reference to his chairmanship of a Swedish-Russian surveying commission. KR and his wife were among the few Romanovs on intimate terms with Nicholas II and the Empress Alexandra, who found KR's devotion to his family a welcome respite from the playboy lifestyle of many of the other Grand Dukes, he was a close friend of the Grand Duchess Elizabeth and wrote a poem about her expressing his admiration when she first came to Russia to be married.
He was one of the few members of the Imperial Family to go to Moscow to attend the funeral of Elizabeth's husband, Grand Duke Sergei Alexandrovich, killed by a terrorist's bomb. As exemplary and dedicated as KR's public life was, his private turmoil was intense. Had it not been for the publication of KR's strikingly candid diaries long after his death, the world would have never known that this most prolific of Grand Dukes, the father of nine children, was tormented by his homosexual feelings; as mentioned, KR's first homosexual experiences occurred in the Imperial Guards. The Grand Duke made great efforts to repress his feelings, but despite his love for his wife, KR could not resist the temptations offered to a person of his exalted state. KR claimed in his diary that between 1893 and 1899 he remained away from the practice of what he called his "main sin." Yet by the birth of his seventh child, KR had become a steady visitor to several of the male brothels of St. Petersburg. In 1904 he wrote in his diary that he "ordered my coachman...to go, continued on foot past the bath-house.
I intended to walk straight on... But without reaching the Pevchesky Bridge, I went in, and so I have surrendered again, without much struggle, to my depraved inclinations." The cycle of resistance and capitulation to temptation is a common theme of KR's diaries. By the end of 1904, KR became somewhat attached to an attractive young man by the name of Yatsko. "I sent for Yatsko and he came this morning. I persuaded him to be candid, it was strange for me to hear him describe the familiar characteristics: he has never felt drawn to a woman, has been infatuated with men several times. I did not confess to him. Yatsko and I talked for a long time. Before leaving he kissed my face and hands, he told me that since the first time we met, his soul has been filled with rapturous feelings towards me, which grow all the time. How this reminds me of my own youth." A few days KR and Yatsko met again, a relationship developed between the two. In KR's final years, he wrote of his homosexual urges less and less, whether from having reached some arrangement with his conscience, or from the natural advance of age and ill health.
KR married in 1884 in St Petersburg Princess Elisabeth of his second cousin. Upon her marriage, Elisabeth became the Grand Duchess Elizaveta Mavrikievna, she was known within the family as "Mavra." KR was, by all accounts, devoted to his wife and children, a loving father. He and his family made their home at Pavlovsk, a suburban palace of St. Petersburg, a favorite residence of KR's great-grandfather, the Emperor Paul I; the couple would have a total of nine children: Prince John Prince Gabriel Princess Tatiana Prince Konstantin Prince Oleg Prince Igor Prince Georgy Princess Natalia Princess Vera Prince John married Princess Helen of Serbia in 1911. Princess Tatiana married a Georgian prince, that same year. KR's children were the first to fall under the new Family Law promulgated by Emperor Alexander III, it stated that henceforth, only the ch
K. R. Market
K. R. Market known as City Market, is the largest wholesale market dealing with commodities in Bangalore, India, it is named after a former ruler of the princely state of Mysore. The market is located in the Kalasipalyam area, adjacent to the Tipu Sultan's Summer Palace, on Mysore Road at its junction with Krishnarajendra Road, it is the first locality in the whole of Asia to get electricity and considered to be one of the biggest flower markets in Asia. K R Market was established in 1928; the location of the market is said to have been a water tank and a battlefield in the 18th century during the Anglo-Mysore Wars. From the British era, two buildings remain, at the back of the market area. A new concrete 3-story structure was erected in the 1990s between the two older buildings to provide more space for vendors and better overall conditions. At the basement is an underground parking above which stand three commodity-specialised floors: flowers and vegetables on the lower ground floor, dry goods on the upper ground floor and tools and machine-tools accessories on the first floor.
World Meteorological Organization
The World Meteorological Organization is an intergovernmental organization with a membership of 192 Member States and Territories. Its current Secretary-General is Petteri Taalas and the President of the World Meteorological Congress, its supreme body, is David Grimes; the Organization is headquartered in Switzerland. It followed on from the International Meteorological Organization, founded in 1873, a non-governmental organization. Reforms of status and structure were proposed from the 1930s, culminating in the World Meteorological Convention signed on 11 October 1947 which came into force on 23 March 1950, it formally became the World Meteorological Organization on 17 March 1951, was designated as a specialized agency of the United Nations. WMO has a membership of 191 Member States and Territories as of February 2014; the Convention of the World Meteorological Organization was signed 11 October 1947 and established upon ratification on 23 March 1950. The WMO hierarchy: The World Meteorological Congress, the supreme body of the Organization, determines policy.
Each member state and territory is represented by a Permanent Representative with WMO when Congress meets every four years. Congress elects the President and Vice-Presidents of the Organization and members of the Executive Council; the Executive Council implements Congress decisions. The Secretariat is an eight-department organization with a staff of 200 headed by a Secretary-General, who can serve a maximum of two four-year terms; the annually published WMO Statements on the status of the World Climate provides details of global and national temperatures and extreme weather events. It provides information on long-term climate change indicators including atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases, sea level rise, sea ice extent; the year 2016 was the hottest year on record, with many weather and climate extremes, according to the most recent WMO report. Disaster risk reduction The Global Framework for Climate Services The WMO Integrated Global Observing System Aviation meteorological services Polar and high mountain regions Capacity development Governance In keeping with its mandate to promote the standardization of meteorological observations, the WMO maintains numerous code forms for the representation and exchange of meteorological and hydrological data.
The traditional code forms, such as SYNOP, CLIMAT and TEMP, are character-based and their coding is position-based. Newer WMO code forms are designed for portability and universality; these are BUFR, CREX, for gridded geo-positioned data, GRIB. The WMO and United Nations Environment Programme jointly created Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change received the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007 "for their efforts to build up and disseminate greater knowledge about anthropogenic climate change, to lay the foundations for the measures that are needed to counteract such change."

Krypton is a chemical element with symbol Kr and atomic number 36. It is a member of group 18 elements. A colorless, tasteless noble gas, krypton occurs in trace amounts in the atmosphere and is used with other rare gases in fluorescent lamps. With rare exceptions, krypton is chemically inert. Krypton, like the other noble gases, is used in photography. Krypton light has many spectral lines, krypton plasma is useful in bright, high-powered gas lasers, each of which resonates and amplifies a single spectral line. Krypton fluoride makes a useful laser medium. From 1960 to 1983, the official length of a meter was defined by the 605 nm wavelength of the orange spectral line of krypton-86, because of the high power and relative ease of operation of krypton discharge tubes. Krypton was discovered in Britain in 1898 by Sir William Ramsay, a Scottish chemist, Morris Travers, an English chemist, in residue left from evaporating nearly all components of liquid air. Neon was discovered by a similar procedure by the same workers just a few weeks later.
William Ramsay was awarded the 1904 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for discovery of a series of noble gases, including krypton. In 1960, the International Conference on Weights and Measures defined the meter as 1,650,763.73 wavelengths of light emitted by the krypton-86 isotope. This agreement replaced the 1889 international prototype meter located in Paris, a metal bar made of a platinum-iridium alloy; this obsoleted the 1927 definition of the ångström based on the red cadmium spectral line, replacing it with 1 Å = 10−10 m. The krypton-86 definition lasted until the October 1983 conference, which redefined the meter as the distance that light travels in vacuum during 1/299,792,458 s. Krypton is characterized by several sharp emission lines the strongest being yellow. Krypton is one of the products of uranium fission. Solid krypton is white and has a face-centered cubic crystal structure, a common property of all noble gases. Occurring krypton in Earth's atmosphere is composed of five stable isotopes, plus one isotope with such a long half-life that it can be considered stable..
In addition, about thirty unstable isotopes and isomers are known. Traces of 81Kr, a cosmogenic nuclide produced by the cosmic ray irradiation of 80Kr occur in nature: this isotope is radioactive with a half-life of 230,000 years. Krypton is volatile and does not stay in solution in near-surface water, but 81Kr has been used for dating old groundwater.85Kr is an inert radioactive noble gas with a half-life of 10.76 years. It is produced by the fission of uranium and plutonium, such as in nuclear bomb testing and nuclear reactors. 85Kr is released during the reprocessing of fuel rods from nuclear reactors. Concentrations at the North Pole are 30% higher than at the South Pole due to convective mixing. Like the other noble gases, krypton is chemically unreactive; the rather restricted chemistry of krypton in its only known nonzero oxidation state of +2 parallels that of the neighboring element bromine in the +1 oxidation state. Before the 1960s, no noble gas compounds had been synthesized. However, following the first successful synthesis of xenon compounds in 1962, synthesis of krypton difluoride was reported in 1963.
In the same year, KrF4 was reported by Grosse, et al. but was subsequently shown to be a mistaken identification. Under extreme conditions, krypton reacts with fluorine to form KrF2 according to the following equation: Kr + F2 → KrF2Compounds with krypton bonded to atoms other than fluorine have been discovered. There are unverified reports of a barium salt of a krypton oxoacid. ArKr+ and KrH+ polyatomic ions have been investigated and there is evidence for KrXe or KrXe+; the reaction of KrF2 with B3 produces an unstable compound, Kr2, that contains a krypton-oxygen bond. A krypton-nitrogen bond is found in the cation +, produced by the reaction of KrF2 with + below −50 °C. HKrCN and HKrC≡CH were reported to be stable up to 40 K. Krypton hydride crystals can be grown at pressures above 5 GPa, they have a face-centered cubic structure where krypton octahedra are surrounded by randomly oriented hydrogen molecules. Earth has retained all of the noble gases. Krypton's concentration in the atmosphere is about 1 ppm.
It can be extracted from liquid air by fractional distillation. The amount of krypton in space is uncertain, because measurement is derived from meteoric activity and solar winds; the first measurements suggest an abundance of krypton in space. Krypton's multiple emission lines make ionized krypton gas discharges appear whitish, which in turn makes krypton-based bulbs useful in photography as a brilliant white light source. Krypton is used in some photographic flashes for high speed photography. Krypton gas is combined with other gases to make luminous signs that glow with a bright greenish-yellow light. Krypton is mixed with argon in energy efficient fluorescent lamps, reducing the power consumption, but reducing the light output and raising the c
Knattspyrnufélag Reykjavíkur shortened to KR or KR Reykjavík, is an Icelandic football club based in the capital, Reykjavík. KR is the oldest and most successful club in Icelandic football, having won the Úrvalsdeild karla championship 26 times, including the first season in 1912, it is the most successful club in the Icelandic men's Cup, with 14 titles including the first in 1960 and most recent in 2014. In 1964, KR was the first Icelandic representative in the European Cup. KR was established on 16 February 1899, it was founded as Fótboltafélag Reykjavíkur, before changing to Knattspyrnufélag Reykjavíkur meaning Reykjavík Football Club, the change due to "knattspyrna" being considered a more elegant word. KR was the only football club in Reykjavík for a decade, but as soon as other clubs were established there were plans for competitions. KR won the inaugural championship in 1912 after a play-off with Fram. KR won the first title after the Icelandic league was divided into two divisions in 1955, won again in 1959 when the 1st Division was played on a home-and-away basis for the first time.
KR won the first Icelandic Cup competition in 1960. KR was the first Icelandic club to play in European competition, they lost the preliminary round 11–1 on aggregate to Liverpool, who were playing their first European tie. KR’s women's team was the first Icelandic contender in Europe, entering the inaugural European Competition in 2001. KR won their 20th title in 1968, they were relegated for the first time to the Second Division in 1977, but narrowly missed winning the first division in 1990, 1996 and 1998, when KR lost out in the title race on the final day. In KR’s centenary year in 1999 the team ended its long quest for another national title; the team had not won the league title for 31 years despite being viewed as favourites but they looked favourites all season this time. They clinched the title with a 4–0 win over Víkingur in the penultimate round and beat ÍA 3–1 in the cup final in front of a capacity crowd at the national stadium; the women's team was successful, winning the league and the cup, KR celebrated its centenary year with an unprecedented double-double.
In total, the men's team has won the league title 26 times and the cup 14 times and during the last decade the women's team has won six league titles and twice won the cup. The men's team has four times won the double, in 1961, 1963, 1999 and in 2011. KR's best European success was in 2009–10 UEFA Europa League when they defeated AE Larissa in the second qualifying round, but were eliminated in next round by Basel. In 2011–12 UEFA Europa League, KR eliminated ÍF Fuglafjørður in the first qualifying round and achieved a big win against MŠK Žilina in the next round in Reykjavík and though losing 2-0 in Zilina advanced through to the next round where they lost to Dinamo Tbilisi. KR play in white stripes; this is in tribute to the English club Newcastle United who were the current English champions when KR were formed. The current sponsor of KR is the Icelandic medical company Alvogen. Above the club badge on the shirt, although not featured on replica shirts, there are five stars, each representing 5 of KR's 25 league titles.
On 20 October 2006, KR introduced a new deal with sport equipment manufacturer Nike and the team will wear products from Nike for the 2007 season. The KR shorts are black and white and only carry the logo of Eimskip, Nike the KR badge and the squad number of the player; the KR socks are without a club badge. Besides football, the original sport for which the club was founded, KR today practices basketball, table tennis, darts, team handball, Icelandic wrestling and swimming. KR have been playing at their own ground, KR-völlur in the west end of Reykjavík, since 1984, having played at the national stadium and at the old municipal stadium. KR has had the highest attendances for the last nine years. Only 376 attended the first match at KR-völlur in 1984 but in the centenary year an average crowd of 2,501 saw KR's home matches: about 0.75% of the Icelandic population.
