List of counties in Nevada

There are sixteen counties and one independent city in the U. S. state of Nevada. On November 25, 1861, the first Nevada Territorial Legislature established nine counties. Nevada was admitted to the Union on October 1864 with eleven counties. In 1969, Ormsby County and Carson City were consolidated into a single municipal government known as Carson City; the FIPS county code is the five-digit Federal Information Processing Standard code which uniquely identifies counties and county equivalents in the United States. The three-digit number is unique to each individual county within a state, but to be unique within the entire United States, it must be prefixed by the state code; this means that, for example, while Churchill County, Nevada is 001, Alameda County and Baker County, Oregon are 001. To uniquely identify Churchill County, one must use the state code of 32 plus the county code of 001; the links in the column FIPS. Bullfrog County, formed in 1987 from part of Nye county.

Nova Performance Paragliders

Nova Performance Paragliders is an Austrian aircraft manufacturer based in Terfens. The company specializes in the design and manufacture of paragliders in the form of ready-to-fly aircraft; the company was founded in 1989 and located in Innsbruck. In 2010 the company relocated its headquarters to Terfens. By 2016 the company had 110 employees, including 95 in the Mecsek Ballon KFT Hungarian production plant in Pécs and 15 in Terfens; the company's first designer was Hannes Papesh. Other founders were competitive paraglider pilot Toni Bender; the company's first design, the Nova CXC was sewn by Papesh on his mother's home sewing machine. The company operated from Wolfgang Lechner's apartment. In 1990 the company established a manufacturing relationship with Mecsek Ballon KFT in the Hungarian town of Pécs to take on production. In the communist era Mecsek Ballon had been a mountaineer clothing manufacturer. Glider development was not without problems. In 1992 the Nova Phantom developed technical problems that could not be resolved and was replaced in the line by the Nova Phönix.

Paraglider pilot Christian Heinrich won the 1999 World Paragliding Championships, held in Bramberg am Wildkogel, flying a Nova Krypton, although the contest was not validated, due to poor weather. The Nova Argon introduced in 2000 was DHV certified with unsheathed Kevlar lines, which reduced drag in flight; the introduction of the Nova Carbon in 2001 resulted in delays filling customer orders as demand exceeded the ability of the fabric manufacturer to provide the cloth for construction. In 2002 The Carbon wing developed porosity in the field after delivery to customers, resulting in parachute-like descents; the fault lay with a batch of fabric which the fabric manufacturer had sub-contracted to a new factory and which had produced a sub-standard product. Nova replaced. By the mid-2000s the company had a full line of gliders, including the beginner Phorus, intermediate Pheron and Artax, performance Aeron and Radon, plus the two-place flight training Phor. In 2003 Hungarian paraglider pilot Szilard Forgo flew a new world record to a declared goal of 278.3 km flying a Nova Aeron in Brazil.

The 2008 contest season XContest resulted in the Nova Mentor being flown by the first-, third-, fourth-, seventh- and eighth-place finishers. In 2011 the Nova Mentor 2 dominated the standard class in the DHV league, with Mentor 2 pilots taking seven of the top ten places. In the XContest nine of the top ten gliders flown were Mentor 2s, including the top three.

My Brother, Borat

My Brother, Borat was supposed to become a Kazakh dark comedy film, as an unauthorised sequel to the 2006 film Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan. The film was written and directed by Erkin Rakishev, it was meant to address mis-conceptions of Kazakhstan as portrayed in the 2006 film; the film was scheduled for release in early 2011. Because there hasn't been any update on the film since 2010, it is that the production for My Brother, Borat has been cancelled. My Brother, Borat tells the story of John, an American journalist who, after watching the film Borat, decides to visit Kazakhstan, he ends up meeting Bilo—Borat Sagdiyev's mentally-ill younger brother. The two go to find Borat's fictional home village of Kusek, they discover it to be a well-developed city in another country. Director Erkin Rakishev did not see the humour intended by the 2006 Borat film, so decided to create My Brother, Borat as a counterbalance to correct the image of Kazakhstan as a backward country.

He stated, "I think. Maybe they just wanted to joke, but they belittled and mixed us with dirt, they compared us to animals, showed us as barbarians and wild people". Rakishev explained that the Borat film offended the Kazakhstan government to the point of the film being banned in that country. In wishing to address the negative perceptions of Kazakhstan created in the original film, he developed My Brother, Borat as an "image-redressing movie", he began initial production on the film after Borat was released in 2006, abandoned the project due to lack of financing, only being able to continue the project, with the assistance of Kazakhstan legislator Bekbolat Tleukhan. Rakishev did shoot controversial scenes, such as one in which the character of Bilo is raped by a donkey and another where an old woman is beating the two main characters with a stick. In denying that such scenes would offend, Rakishev stated, "If it was Borat's brother who raped the donkey perhaps it would be considered outrageous, but it is the other way round".

The director explained that "he would not mind distributing the film in the United States, though there was the matter of possible copyright violation". He has stated that he would welcome a lawsuit, as it would both provide publicity and promote his vision of a proud Kazakhstan. New York Magazine
