Krishna River

The Krishna River is the fourth-biggest river in terms of water inflows and river basin area in India, after the Ganga and Brahmaputra. The river is 1,400 kilometres long; the river is called Krishnaveni. It is one of the major sources of irrigation for Maharashtra, Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh; the Krishna river originates in the Western Ghats near Mahabaleshwar at an elevation of about 1,300 metres, in the state of Maharashtra in central India. It is one of the longest rivers in India; the Krishna river is around 1,400 km in length. The Krishna river's source is at Mahabaleshwar near the Jor village in the extreme north of Wai Taluka, Satara District, Maharashtra in the west and empties into the Bay of Bengal at Hamasaladeevi in Andhra Pradesh, on the east coast, it flows through the state of Karnataka before entering Telangana State. The delta of this river is one of the most fertile regions in India and was the home to ancient Satavahana and Ikshvaku Sun Dynasty kings. Vijayawada is the largest city on the River Krishna.

It causes heavy soil erosion during the monsoon floods. It flows fast and furious reaching depths of over 75 feet. There is a saying in Marathi: "Santh vaahate Krishnamaai" which means "quiet and slow flows Krishna"; this term is used to describe. In Karnataka state it called Krishne In Telugu speaking states of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, "Krishnaveni" is a common name given to a girl child, referring to the Krishna river; the largest tributary of the Krishna River is the Tungabhadra River with a drainage basin measuring 71,417 km2, running for about 531 km, but the longest tributary is the Bhima River, which makes a total run of 861 km and has an large drainage area of 70,614 km2. Three tributaries Panchganga and Yerla meet Krishna river near Sangli; these places are considered holy. It is said. Kudalasangama, it is located about 15 kilometres from the Almatti Dam in Bagalkot district of Karnataka state. The Krishna and Malaprabha River rivers merge here; the Aikya Mantapa or the holy Samādhi of Basavanna, the founder of the Lingayat sect of Hindu religion along with Linga, believed to be self-born, is here and river flow east towards Srisailam Andhra Pradesh.

Sangameswaram of Kurnool district in Andhra Pradesh is a famous pilgrim center for Hindus where Tungabhadra and Bhavanasi rivers join the Krishna river. The Sangameswaram temple is now drowned in the Srisailam reservoir, visible for devotees only during summer when the reservoir's water level comes down. Krishna Basin extends over an area of 258,948 km2, nearly 8% of the total geographical area of the country; this large basin lies in the states of Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh and Maharashtra. The Krishna river rises in the Western Ghats, at an elevation of about 1,337 m just north of Mahabaleshwar, about 64 km from the Arabian Sea, it outfalls into the Bay of Bengal. The principal tributaries joining Krishna are the Ghataprabha River, Malaprabha River, Bhima River, Tungabhadra River and Musi River. Most of this basin comprises rolling and undulating country, except for the western border, formed by an unbroken line of the Western Ghats; the important soil types found in the basin are black soils, red soils and lateritic soils, mixed soils and black soils and saline and alkaline soils.

An average annual surface water potential of 78.1 km3 has been assessed in this basin. Out of this, 58.0 km3 is utilizable water. Culturable area in the basin is about 203,000 km2, 10.4% of the total cultivable area of the country. As the water availability in the Krishna river was becoming inadequate to meet the water demand, Godavari River is linked to the Krishna river by commissioning the Polavaram right bank canal with the help of Pattiseema lift scheme in the year 2015 to augment water availability to the Prakasam Barrage in Andhra Pradesh; the irrigation canals of Prakasam Barrage form part of National Waterway 4. This river is revered by Hindus as sacred; the river is believed to remove all sins of people by taking a bath in this river. The centre of attraction is the Krishna Pushkaram fair, held once in twelve years on the banks of the Krishna river. There are many pilgrimage places in Maharashtra, Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh on the course of the river; the first holy place on the river Krishna is at Wai, known for the Mahaganpati Mandir and Kashivishweshwar temple.

It has seven ghats along the river. Temples like Dattadeva temple, revered by the people of Maharashtra, are located on the banks of Krishna at Narsobawadi and Audumbar near Sangli. Yadur is one of the important holy places in Karnataka, located on the bank of Krishna. Veerabhadra temple is a famous temple. Many devotees visit this place from Andhra Pradesh. Located on the banks of the river Krishna is the Sangameshwar Shiva temple at Haripur; some of the other temples are the Kanaka Durga Temple in Vijayawada, Ramling temple near Sangli, Mallikarjuna Jyotirlinga, Amareshwara Swamy Temple, Dattadeva temple, Sangameshwara Shiva temples at Alampur & Gadwal in Telangana. Wide spread area near to the Krishna river holds the rich fauna; the last surviving Mangrove forests in the Krishna estuary have been declared as the Krishna Wildlife Sanc

A Fairly Odd Summer

A Fairly Odd Summer is a 2014 television film and is the third live action film based on the animated series The Fairly OddParents as well as the third and final installment in the live action film series. It is a sequel to A Fairly Odd Movie: Grow Up, Timmy Turner! and A Fairly Odd Christmas, was released on August 2, 2014. The film was released on DVD on October 28, 2014 and was released on Blu-ray on December 4, 2015. Following his previous adventure, Timmy Turner is assigned a summer job in Fairy World's Yuck Factory by head fairy, Jorgen Von Strangle, who believes that as he is grown up, he should work for a living due to him being grown up, something his own fairies agree upon. Timmy, despite not being happy he will not be able to enjoy a summer vacation, chooses to do so in order to impress Tootie, who now works for the Help Creatures Dimmsdale Research Center. Returning to Dimmsdale from his latest day of work, Timmy visits Tootie at the Center and discovers, much to his disappointment, that the head of the Center wishes her to deliver a special gas cure for rare spotted dolphins to Hawaii, which will be contained in a vial in the same size and shape as Timmy's lip balm.

In mix-up and unaware of it, Timmy sets his lip balm down by the gas cure, inadvertently packed away into a travel case by mistake while he takes the cure's vial. Upon returning to home, Timmy is shocked to discovers that his parents are going to Hawaii, after Mr. Turner's pencil company chose it for the company's next vacation. Mr. Turner further reveals that he has been put in charge of providing the entertainment in the form of a fire dance and been given the money to do so, only to learn from Timmy after reading the note his boss gave him in more detail, that he will be fired if he fails to provide. Meanwhile, two children from a rich family and Mitzy, are excited about going to Hawaii, until they learn their parents won't be going, instead sending them off with a babysitter, who turns out to be Vicky, much to their chagrin. In Fairy World, Timmy told he is being promoted. Much to his chagrin, Timmy learns he is to look after the source of all fairy magic, while Jorgen is away in Hawaii competing in the Bronze Biceps contest.

Reluctantly, Timmy takes on the job, but whilst preparing to have his lunch, Timmy discovers that his father packed the check he had been given within his sandwich by mistake, while discovering that his lip balm got mistakenly taken by Tootie and not the gas cure. Seeking to avoid both suffering by these minor accidents, Timmy decides to head to Hawaii, taking the Abracadabraium with him in a bowling bag. Meanwhile, Poof's counterpart, spying on him, meets with the Anti-Fairy council over his failure to destroy Timmy's fairies, vows that he has found a new way to do so by going after the Abracadabraium and destroying it, despite the fact that no anti-fairy can touch it because of the good magic stored in it; the council orders him to do so, stripping him of his bottle, the source of his magic, to ensure he completes his task on the promise he will receive something horrible for his punishment. Heading for Hawaii, Foop runs into Mr. Crocker at the airport, after he was sent there by his mother in the hopes of curing his obsession with fairies.

Realizing that Foop plans to cause mischief for Timmy and destroy Fairy World, Mr Crocker agrees to help him in acquiring the Abracadabraium. After returning the check to his father, much to his delight, giving back the gas cure to Tootie, so she can keep her job, Timmy decides to relax with her and his fairies on the beach. While doing so, he and Tootie run into Marty and Mitzy, who had run away from Vicky after she had mistreated them on their vacation, help them to continue to escape from her so they can have fun, but while relaxing, Mr. Crocker, given the money for the fire dance by Mr. Turner, Foop, having taken on human form distract the pair and steal the bag carrying the Abracadabraium from Timmy, soon putting Fairy World in danger, weakening Cosmo and Poof. Realizing he had been duped, Timmy is soon spotted by Jorgen who becomes furious he lost the Abracadaraium and orders him and Tootie to get it back. Seeking to get it back, the pair and the fairies recruit Marty and Mitzy to help and soon discover that Foop plans to drop the Abracadabrium into a lava pool within a volcano.

Arriving to stop him, the group discover that Mr. Crocker, planning to drop it, became affected by it, turning good and refusing to do as Foop wants. Angered, Foop risks touching the substance to destroy it, leading to Timmy struggling with him to get it back and falling into the lava with it. Much to the surprise of the others, Timmy survives and becomes a fairy after absorbing some of the powers of the Abracadabraium. A defiant Foop swears revenge but is soon sent packing by Poof, while Mr. Crocker soon returns to his normal self. With Timmy now a fairy, Jorgen reassigns Cosmo and Poof to Marty and Mitzy, who he states deserves them, all while leaving them close by for Timmy to see them. Timmy soon uses his fairy powers to save his father's job by creating a fire dance for him with Mr. Crocker in it, after learning he took the money for it. While Marty and Mitzy take delight in having fairies, turning Vicky into a rabbit, Tootie declares she will need time to get used to Timmy as a fairy, before dancing with him.

The stage sets off fireworks and Poof sends off the audience with an "Aloha!". In the Epilogue, Foop gets sent down the drain which he describes as t

Feldman was half of the duo Promised Land, which featured Jon Moss of Culture Club, he was a founding investor in Interactive Ideas and has worked for Warner Brothers, Sony Music and SonyBMG. Feldman attended Highgate School and the University of Liverpool studying psychology. After leaving the university he joined signing Adam and the Ants. Before university, Feldman was involved in music, he left DJM to form a band. Feldman has a younger brother, a sister, Alexandra, his father was Basil Feldman, Baron Feldman, a Conservative member of the House of Lords, his aunt was the actress Fenella Fielding. When Feldman was forming a band in the mid 1970s, he placed a help-wanted ad in the weekly British music magazine Melody Maker. Singer and guitarist Jeremy Ryder and bassist Feldman would form the core duo of Wang Chung, they first met. Mike Berry answered the ad. Mike Smith and drummer Paul Hammond were members of the band.

Smith was a songwriter, but soon left after being signed as a songwriter by Chinn and Chapman. Hammond had enjoyed some success in the 1970s band, Atomic Rooster. After a year and a half, Berry left the band. In less than a year, that band split. Hues and Feldman joined future Wang Chung drummer Darren Costin, bassist Leigh Gorman, keyboardist Simon Campbell and vocalist Glenn Gregory to form 57 Men; this band lasted for about 18 months before breaking up. Gregory went on to sing with Heaven 17, Gorman played with Adam and the Ants and Bow Wow Wow. With the rising punk music movement in Britain in the late 1970s, Feldman and Hues formed the Intellektuals in mid-1977. Two years Feldman and Hues formed 57 Men, meeting future Wang Chung drummer Darren Costin; the band again broke up within 18 months, but the three remained together and in late 1979 became known as Huang Chung. At this time, Feldman was known professionally as Nick De Spig. Huang Chung released two singles in 1980 for independent music company Rewind Records.

In May 1981, the band signed a two-album agreement with Arista Records, releasing its self-titled debut album the following year. That year, Feldman co-wrote one track of the album Walls Have Ears by Blanket of Secrecy. By 1983, Huang Chung changed its name to Wang Chung and Feldman returned to his real name professionally. Wang Chung signed with Geffen Records in the U. S, they wanted to change their name from Huang Chung to something more understandable. After a summer tour for their first Geffen album in 1984, Costin left the band to pursue a solo career. Without a full-time drummer Wang Chung continued recording, releasing singles, four gold and platinum albums and touring extensively. In addition to writing and producing for Wang Chung, Feldman scored the William Friedkin film To Live and Die in L. A. and performed for John Hughes' The Breakfast Club. By early 1990, the band broke-up. Shortly afterwards, Feldman joined Jon Moss of Culture Club to form Promised Land, they released a cover version of Thunderclap Newman's "Something in the Air", the New Musical Express Single of the Week upon its release.
