Shravasti was a city of ancient India and one of the six largest cities in India during Gautama Buddha's lifetime. The city was located in the fertile Gangetic plains in the present-day district of the same name, that belongs to Devipatan division of Uttar Pradesh near Balrampur, some 175 kilometres north-east of Lucknow. Earlier, it was a part of the Bahraich district, but the latter was split due to administrative reasons. Shravasti is located near the West Rapti River and is associated with the life of Gautama Buddha, believed to have spent 24 Chaturmases here. Age-old stupas, majestic viharas and several temples near the village of "Sahet-Mahet" establish Buddha's association with Shravasti, it is said that the Vedic period king, founded this town. Shravasti was the capital of the Kosala Kingdom during 6th century BCE to 6th century CE; this prosperous trading centre was well known for its religious associations. Sobhanath temple is believed to be the birthplace of the Tirthankara Sambhavanath in Jainism, making Shravasti an important center for Jains as well.

According to Nagarjuna, the city had a population of 900,000 in 5th century BCE and it overshadowed Magadha's capital, Rajgir. As mentioned in the'Bruhatkalpa' and various Kalpas of the fourteenth century, the name of the city was Mahid. There are subsequent, it is mentioned that a vast fort covered this city in which there were many temples with idols of Devkulikas. Today a great rampart of brick surrounds this city. During excavation in'Sahet-Mahet' near Shravasti City, many ancient idols and inscriptions were found, they are now kept in museums at Lucknow. At present, the archaeological department of the Indian Government is excavating the site to perform allied research. Jetavana monastery was a famous monastery close to Shravasti, it is known as the main temple of Gautama Buddha. According to the Mahabharata, Shravasti is named after the legendary king Shrawasta. According to Buddhist tradition, the city was called Savatthi; as per the Ramayana, the king of Kosala, installed his son Lava at Shrawasti and Kusha at Kushavati.

Shravasti was located on the banks of the river Achiravati. It was the capital city of the kingdom of Kosala, its king was called Pasenadi, a disciple of Buddha, it is a beautiful city with vast amounts of diversity. Buddhaghosa says that, in the Buddha's day, there were fifty-seven thousand families in Shravasti, that it was the chief city in the country of Kasi Kosala, three hundred leagues in extent and had eighty thousand villages, he stated the population of Shravasti to have been 180 million. The road from Rajagaha to Shravasti passed through Vesali, the Parayanavagga gives as the resting places between the two cities: Setavya, Kusinara and Bhoganagara. Further on, there was a road running southwards from Shravasti through Saketa to Kosambi. Between Saketa and Shravasti was located Toranavatthu; the Buddha passed the greater part of his monastic life in Shravasti. His first visit to Shravasti was at the invitation of Anathapindika; the main monasteries in Shravasti were the Pubbarama. Shravasti contained the monastery of Rajakarama, built by Pasenadi, opposite Jetavana.

Not far from the city was a dark forest called the Andhavana, where some monks and nuns went to live. Outside the city gate of Shravasti was a fisherman's village of five hundred families; the chief patrons of the Buddha in Shravasti were Anathapindika, Visakha and Pasenadi. When Bandhula left Vesali, he came to live in Shravasti. Woodward states; these suttas are made up of 6 in the Digha Nikaya, 75 in the Majjhima Nikaya, 736 in the Samyutta Nikaya, 54 in the Anguttara Nikaya. The Commentaries state that the Buddha spent twenty-five rainy seasons in Shravasti, thus leaving only twenty to be spent elsewhere. Of the 25 rainy seasons which Buddha lived in Shravasti, he spent 19 in the monastery named Jetavana, 6 in the monastery called Pubbarama. Thus, Shravasti is the place where Buddha lived the longest amount of time, it is the place where he gave the largest amount of discourses and instructions; the Chinese Pilgrim Xuanzang found the old city in ruins, but recorded the sites of various buildings.

The ruins at Saheth and Maheth on the boundaries of the Gonda and Bahreich districts of Uttar Pradesh are believed to be the site of ancient Shravasti. Maheth was the city-proper. Of the ancient Shravasti, the city walls are still standing. Within these, the remains of 3 ancient buildings can be visited: Angulimala's stupa, Anathapindika's stupa, an old temple dedicated to a Jain Tirthankara Sambhavanatha. Outside of Shravasti is located the stupa; the site of Jetavana monastery is the main pilgrim destination, with meditation and chanting done at the Gandhakuti and the Anandabodhi tree. Buddhist monasteries from the following countries have been constructed at Shravasti: Thailand, South Korea, Sri Lanka, Myanmar and China.

Herbert "Hacki" Wimmer is a former footballer who played as a midfielder. Besides winning five national championships and two UEFA Cups with his club side Borussia Mönchengladbach he won the 1974 World Cup and the UEFA Euro 1972 with Germany. Herbert Wimmer started his playing career with lowly Borussia Brand. Between 1966 and 1978 he played in 366 Bundesliga matches for Borussia Mönchengladbach and scored 51 goals. With the club he won five national championships, the German Cup in 1973, the UEFA Cup in 1975, he started out as a forward, but in Mönchengladbach his role was to cover defensively for the star of the team in this era, midfield playmaker Günter Netzer. His physical endurance, which earned him the nickname the iron lung, was one of his major assets, he was considered as a paragon of a player. As such, Jonathan Wilson, when writing for The Guardian in 2013, described Wimmer as a "destroyer,", a type of holding midfielder whose role is to help win back possession and distribute the ball to other players.

Between 1968 and 1976, Wimmer played in 36 matches for the German national football team, where he scored four goals. With Germany he won the 1972 European Football Championship – there he scored the second goal in the 3–0 win in the final against the USSR – and the 1974 FIFA World Cup, where he took part in two matches.

MenuetOS is an operating system with a monolithic preemptive, real-time kernel written in FASM assembly language. The system includes video drivers, it runs on 32-bit x86 architecture computers. Its author is Ville M. Turjanmaa, it has a graphical desktop and networking abilities. One distinctive feature is. On an Intel Pentium MMX 200 MHz it has been known to boot in 5 seconds. MenuetOS was written for 32-bit x86 architectures and released under the GPL, thus many of its applications are distributed under the GPL; the 64-bit MenuetOS referred to as Menuet 64, remains a platform for learning 64-bit assembly language programming. The 64-bit Menuet is distributed without charge for personal and educational use only, but without the source code, the license includes a clause that prohibits disassembly. Multi-core support was added on 24 Feb 2010. MenuetOS development has focused on fast, efficient implementation. MenuetOS has networking abilities, a working TCP/IP stack. Most of the networking code is written by Mike Hibbett.

The main focus of Menuet has been on making an environment for easy assembly programming, but it is still possible to run software written in high-level programming languages on the assembler core. The biggest single effort towards high-level language support is Jarek Pelczar's work in porting C libraries to Menuet; the GUI at version 0.99 supports display resolutions up to 1920 x 1080 with window transparency. The OS has support for several classes of USB 2.0 peripherals. MenuetOS ships with the shareware versions of Quake and Doom. For disk storage, MenuetOS supports the FAT32 file system. Menuet32 GridWorks "EZ" distribution The 64-bit main distribution is now proprietary. Several distributions of the 32-bit GPL MenuetOS still exist, including translations in Russian, Chinese and Serbian.
