Mount Bosavi

Mount Bosavi is a mountain in the Southern Highlands province, Papua New Guinea. It is the collapsed cone of an extinct volcano on the Great Papuan Plateau, part of the Kikori River basin; the crater is 4 km wide and 1 km deep. Part of the mountain is included in the Sulamesi Wildlife Management Area, established in 2006, it forms part of the proposed UNESCO World Heritage Site Kikori River Basin/Great Papuan Plateau. The people living just north of the mountain refer to themselves as Bosavi kalu and divide into four culturally identical but linguistically marked groups, the Kaluli, Ologo and Wisesi. Collectively they are referred to as Bosavi kalu. A 2009 expedition by an international team of scientists and a television crew from the BBC Natural History Unit filming Lost Land of the Volcano, a BBC wildlife documentary, discovered more than 40 undescribed species, including 16 frogs, at least 3 fish, several insects and spiders, a bat, a giant rat, measuring 82 cm in length and weighing 1.5 kg.

Gandhi Ghat

Gandhi Ghat is one of the main ghats on the Ganges River in Patna. It is named after the leader of the Indian independence movement Mahatma Gandhi; the ghat is famous for its Evening Ganga Aarti. It is associated with the immersion of ashes of Mahatma Gandhi in the river Ganges. Gandhi Ghat is situated on the bank of the Ganges, it is located behind National Institute of Technology, Patna and is around 5 Kilometers North East of Patna Junction railway station. Ganga Aarti on Gandhi Ghat is performed with 51 lamps, by a group of priests, dressed in saffron robes; the Aarti starts with the blowing of a conch shell and continues with the movement of incense sticks in elaborate patterns and circling of large burning lamps that create a bright hue against the darkened sky. The ritual was started in 2011 on the lines of Ganga Aarti in Haridwar. Bihar State Tourism Development Corporation operates MV Ganga Vihar from Gandhi Ghat. Ganga Vihar is a River Cruise ship with restaurant on-board known as the floating restaurant.

It runs Leisure Cruise/Corporate Cruise with boarding for tourists from the ghat. Another vessel MV Kautilya was added in 2016, a cruise boat for tourist rides on river Ganges from Gandhi Ghat; the Tourism Department plans to keep a floating jetty that would be placed at Gandhi Ghat, from where the two vessels operate. State tourism department organises a kite festival on the Sabbalpur diara island, across the river on the occasion of Makar Sankranti. Festival first has been organised every year since then.

Yad Hana

Yad Hana is a Community settlement and former kibbutz in central Israel. Located in the Sharon plain near Highway 57 and north of the country's center, it falls under the jurisdiction of Hefer Valley Regional Council. In 2018 it had a population of 926; the kibbutz was established in 1950 by a gar'in of Dror members and was named in honour of Hannah Szenes. In 1953, as a result of the split in Mapam, most of the kibbutz members defected to Maki. However, 120 members who disagreed with this left the kibbutz to found a new one nearby by the name of Yad Hana Senesh; as a result, the kibbutz became known as the "only communist kibbutz." In 2003 the kibbutz was rezoned and popularly renamed Yad Hana-Homesh, when the kibbutz accepted the government's generous privatization package which included absorbing settlers evicted from Homesh as part of Israel's unilateral disengagement plan (see Protocol N.31 of the Knesset Ombudsman sub-committee on the disengaged, 5 Jan-2009. Today Yad Hana is a collective suburb, whose main industry is its own commercial real estate development.
