DUBAI, 17 June 2010 (IRIN) - Kyrgyzstan’s population of 5.3 million comprises three main ethnic groups: Kyrgyz, Uzbeks and Russians. Following the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, the number of ethnic Russians has declined, particularly in the south, where internal migration has also altered the balance between Kyrgyz and ethnic Uzbeks. In common with its neighbours in Central Asia, Kyrgyzstan has a mixed population dating back to the drawing of the region’s borders by Stalin in the 1920s. Most of the 767,000 ethnic Uzbeks in Kyrgyzstan live in the south, in the Kyrgyz part of Fergana Valley, the most densely ...
Strange days on Christmas Island | Inside Story
CHRISTMAS ISLAND is a weird place to begin with: a big rock in the Indian Ocean, much of it covered in high grade phosphate, inhabited by about 100 million red crabs. The island’s peculiarities are not limited to its natural environment. People travelling to this Australian outpost on a direct flight from Perth depart from the international terminal and go through customs at both ends of the journey. But surely the strangest feature of Christmas Island, a landmark that reminded me of an oversized version of the new elephant enclosure at the Melbourne Zoo, is a state-of-the-art, high security immigration detention centre, ... market research, surveys and trends
Country of Origin Information – a critical assessment « NCADC news
A new report from the Immigration Advisory Service (IAS), investigates the impact of the independent monitoring of the former on raising the standards and quality of UKBA COIS reports.

Too many clients lose their cases because the UKBA treats as gospel some remark by some unnamed source, or relies on information taken out of context. Now we should ensure that the same ... market research, surveys and trends

Made in the USA jewelry? The law on claims

Determining the correct way to identify product origin, though, can get complicated in an ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

WikiAnswers - What is the origin of the piano
There were similar instruments, such as dulcimers, prior to the eighteenth century - the 1700s - but the invention of the first piano as we know it is credited to Bartolemo Cristofori, an Italian musician and specialist in musical instruments, who was retained by the Medici family. From the end of the 1700s the piano was redeveloped and became the instrument of choice of many famous composers and artists. The English harpsichord manufacturers, Broadwood, developed the piano into the instrument closer to that which we know today. For further information, go to or other sources such ...
