List of counties in Montana

This is a list of the counties in the U. S. state of Montana. Montana has two consolidated city-counties—Anaconda with Deer Lodge County and Butte with Silver Bow County; the portion of Yellowstone National Park that lies within Montana was not part of any county until 1978, when part of it was nominally added to Gallatin County, the rest of it to Park County. Montana's postal abbreviation is MT and its FIPS state code is 30; the Federal Information Processing Standard code, used by the United States government to uniquely identify counties, is provided for each county. The FIPS code for each county links to census data for that county. Yellowstone National Park

Nate Fisher

Nathaniel Samuel Fisher, Jr. is a fictional character on the HBO television series Six Feet Under, played by Peter Krause. Nathaniel Samuel Fisher, Jr. is the oldest of the three Fisher siblings, arguably the main character of the series. The series begins when he returns to Los Angeles on Christmas Eve only to learn that his father has died. Nate was born on January 1965 to Nathaniel and Ruth Fisher in Los Angeles; when the series begins on Christmas Eve 2000, Nate is returning home from Seattle to celebrate Christmas with his family. Nate had abandoned the family business years earlier. After graduating from Bonaventure High School and attending U. C. Santa Cruz, Nate travelled through Europe and settled in Washington State, where he was assistant produce manager of the largest organic food co-op in Seattle. However, after his father dies, Nate delays returning to Seattle for a few days, he and David each inherit half of their father's business, Fisher & Sons, Nate ends up sticking around to help run the business after he comes to realize that he has a natural gift for comforting grieving people.

He and David clash because David is angry at him for leaving home and points out the undertaking-related mistakes Nate is making, but they mend fences and work well together. He develops a relationship with Brenda Chenowith that began as a random sexual encounter in an airport and becomes something more. In July 2001, Nate learns that he has arteriovenous malformation, a fatal brain condition which could cause him to have a seizure or stroke at any time, but thanks in large part to the doctor who has diagnosed him Nate decides to not have a risky surgical procedure, not least because the doctor says it doesn't have successful results. Nate has a pronounced fear of death, causing him to hide the information from everyone around him in order to avoid admitting his real chance of dying young. Early in the season, he visits Seattle and seeks comfort from Lisa Kimmel, his lover during much of his time there, he ends up cheating on Brenda with her, to whom he was engaged, only adding to the subconscious pressure on him.

Additionally, several months after leaving Seattle, Lisa moves to Los Angeles and Nate learns that she is pregnant. Through the course of the season, Nate becomes able to face his fear, is able to tell his family about the condition and seek a high-risk surgical procedure as treatment for it; the season ends on a cliffhanger, with Nate undergoing the high-risk surgical procedure required to save his life. The opening scene of the third season is Nate going into temporary cardiac arrest, causing the season to begin on a surreal note, exploring various possible outcomes of Nate's surgery and his life. However, the series skips ahead in time to late 2002, where it is revealed that Nate was revived by doctors and the procedure was successful, Nate and Lisa have married, their relationship, however, is tumultuous because Lisa doesn't trust Nate and he resents her controlling and joyless attitude, just when things are beginning to look up for the couple, Lisa is reported missing and a month her drowned corpse is found.

Nate is forced to deal with both Lisa's death and being a single parent. He rekindles his relationship with Brenda and the two become engaged for a second time, marrying six months in October 2004, their wedding day, however, is darkened by Brenda's miscarriage the previous day. Brenda becomes pregnant again, but she and Nate disagree on whether or not she should have amniocentesis to determine if the baby has Down syndrome or spina bifida after blood tests show the baby may have special needs; this causes a rift in their relationship. Nate seeks solace in his stepsister Maggie, a Quaker. Nate begins to attend Quaker Meetings and after Maggie requests that Nate give her a ride one evening, Nate ends up having sex with Maggie. Afterwards, Nate suffers a brain hemorrhage from a second AVM that had developed since his mid-2002 surgery and slips into a brief coma, he wakes up in the hospital the next day and the doctors believe he will have a healthy recovery over the next few weeks. Brenda tells him that she forgives him for his adultery, but he responds by saying that he wants a divorce.

Brenda leaves. Nate is visited by David, Maya, Keith, Durrell and Maggie, but Ruth can't be reached due to being away on a camping trip. At the end of the day, Nate unexpectedly dies in his hospital bed while David is sleeping at his side. Although he had arranged earlier in the series to have a female Rabbi conduct his funeral service, he ends up having a secular service at the funeral home and a "green funeral" where his untreated body is wrapped in a shroud and buried at a local park. Following his death, the series spends the remaining few episodes on the other characters' lives as they attempt to cope with his absence. Nate appears several times to them as a representation of their own thoughts in a device, used for many dead characters throughout the series to illustrate characters' internal monologues; when Ruth dies 20 years the last thing she sees is Nathaniel Sr. and Nate in her room helping her ease peacefully into death

Bobirwa

Bobirwa Subdistrict is a jurisdiction in Botswana. It is populated by the Babirwa people. Sebirwa, the language spoken by the Babirwa people, is a dialect of Northern Sotho, along with Bididi, Kgaga, Pedi, Pulana, Kutswe, Pai, Kubu, etc. Northern Sotho is one of three Sesotho subgroups of Basotho; the two others are Western Sotho, North West Province, a small number of people in Matebeland Province of Zimbabwe and Southern Sotho. The Basotho came from Ntswanatsatsi. Masilo is the founding father of Basotho. After moving away from the rest of the Basotho in Ntswanatsatsi, like other Basotho who were part of Northern Basotho subgroup the likes of Bapedi, etc. the Babirwa settled in Nareng in Letswalo area near Tzaneen. From there they settled in Blauwberg in present-day Limpopo Province. Others remained in Blauwberg. Others who left ended up in the southern part of present-day Zimbabwe Gwanda district in Matebeleland South. Gwanda was a place for Jahunda speaking people; some Zimbabweans consider all Basotho of Zimbabwe to be Babirwa.

They are two types of Basotho in Zimbabwe, the Babirwa and the other Basothos who left Transvaal around the 1890s and early 1900 because they were displaced by the Boers and most of those Basothos came from Polokwane area, places like Moletse, Potgieterrus. Other Zimbabwean Sothos got Venda and Tsonga roots from Northern Transvaal present-day Limpopo Province; the Sotho of Zimbabwe, similar to the Sesotho, spoken in Messina and surrounding area is a corrupted Kubu and it is similar to Selobedu. From the above, it is clear that the Babirwa people lived along the confluence of the Limpopo River and the Shashi River, the area that today includes the Mapungubjwe Ruins; the Babirwa in South Africa reside in areas north of the Bochum area, north of Polokwane. There are more than 40 Babirwa surnames in South Africa which include Sebone, Makhura, Makhurane, Nare, Tlou-Serope, Mmamadi, Mangale, Molefe, Jibula, Lehomo, Raseokgo, Ramalepe, Selema, Morerwa Makgatho, Monekwe, Madema Morebeng and many more.

The word Bobirwa, means the land of Ba-Birwa people. Template:Infobox settlement' A large number of Babirwa left the northern South African shore and ended up living in what is today called The Bobirwa Sub District, an administrative region in eastern Botswana, part of the Central District. Bobonong is the headquarters of the sub-district; the sub-district is bounded by Zimbabwe to South Africa to the southeast. The Limpopo River forms the boundary with South Africa; the Bobirwa Sub-district has an average annual rainfall of 300 to 400 millimetres. Soils are loams to sandy clay loams. Bobirwa is the lowest part of varying from 590 to 886 metres above sea level, it is intersected by a network of channels. Villages include Mathathane, Tsetsebjwe, Bobonong, Tobane, Semolale, Zanzibar, Moletemane and Lentswelemoriti; the sub-district has been degraded by agricultural activities and is susceptible to drought. Large areas in and around the villages are bare earth caused by clearing grasses to keep snakes and insects away.

Overgrazing by sheep, goats and cattle is another cause. A study showed a substantial reduction in natural land cover between 1970 and 2010, combined with a significant increase in population. In addition to livestock, the sub-district is home to abundant wildlife. In 2000, there was a herd of around 200 elephants. In 2011, it was reported that the government had approved the establishment of service centers in Tsetsebjwe and Gobojango as well as other large infrastructure development projects such as road improvements and electrification; this followed rapid economic growth in the previous three years. The local people could now bank in Bobonong, rather than having to travel to Selebi-Phikwe; the new centers were expected to further improve access to services. In 2012, there was a sharp increase in stock theft; this may have been caused by drought, forcing livestock to travel long distances to find grazing and water making them vulnerable to rustlers.
