  Amu Darya - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Amu Darya (also Amudarya, Amudar'ya, in Persian آمودریا; Darya means "River" in Persian) is a river in Central Asia.
It is then split into many waterways that used to form the river delta joining the Aral Sea, passing Urgench, Dashoguz and other cities, but it does not reach what is left of the sea anymore and is lost in the desert.
Use of water from the Amu Darya for irrigation has been a major contributing factor in the shrinking of the Aral Sea since the late 1950s.

 Amu
Amu (played by the beautiful and talented Bengali actress Konkona Sensharma) goes to visit relatives in Dehli from her Los Angeles home after college.
Amu is not certain which she dreads more: discovering that rioters killed her parents or that a man who just might be her father actually participated in the slaughter.
"Amu" is less about finger-pointing than a plea for India to confront its past, to overthrow its official amnesia and deal with the cycles of sectarian violence that continue to haunt that country as witnessed by the 2002 uprising in Gujarat.

It was to throw light on Dr Amu's contribution as a Christian thinker, his career and legacy and explain the nature and significance of his theological landmarks and musical language to enable the present generations to draw inspirations from his rich experience.
Rev Laryea said Dr Amu had argued that for Christianity to survive and achieved its purpose in Africa it must be intelligible and full of life drawing attention to the link between the intellectual dimension of the Christian faith and its praxis.
He said in Amu's view, "If the gospel is represented by a seed, to what extent can we strip it of its husk (the cultural non-essentials) to get to the core (the divine essentials)." According to Rev Laryea, Dr Amu also questioned the fundamental basis for the translation of the gospel.

 Amu, Ephraim Kwaku, Ghana, Presbyterian
Amu, whose life spanned almost the entire twentieth century, embodied most of the transitions of Christianity in Ghana in the period.
With the outbreak of World War I, the repatriation of German missionaries, and the closing of the Bremen Mission seminaries, Amu was trained as a teacher-catechist under Scottish Presbyterian missionaries at the Abetifi Seminary founded by the Basel Mission.
For Amu, the most important single influence was the life and career of James Emmanuel Kwegyir Aggrey of Anomabu, who believed that no first-rate educated African would want to be a carbon copy of a white man. No cultural jingoist, Amu neve broke away from the church, and his Christian self-consciousness remained consistent.

It is defined to be 1/12 of the mass of one atom of Carbon-12.
The abbreviations "u", "amu" and "Da" are used for this unit; often, atomic masses are written without any unit and then the amu is implied.
The unit is convenient because one hydrogen atom weighs approximately 1 amu, and more generally an atom or molecule that contains n protons and neutrons will have a mass approximately equal to n amu.

 Minority character of AMU threatened , The Milli Gazette, Vol.5 No.06, MG100 (16-31 Mar 04)
To ensure that AMU remains a university where a large number of Muslim students, especially from lower middle classes can acquire professional education needed to obtain decent jobs, AMU devised a workable system called the Internal Students quota.
AMU’s professional colleges fill about half of their about 350 seats by using the Internal Students quota; the other half of the seats are filled by competition from students external to AMU.
Besides providing a much-needed indirect preference for Muslim students at AMU, who due to the poor standard of Muslim high schools, poor educational/ socioeconomic backgrounds, and discrimination, are unable to compete with non-Muslims for admission to other universities, AMU is a source of inexpensive education.

 atomic mass unit
The amu (physical scale) was one-sixteenth of the mass of an atom of oxygen-16.
The amu (chemical scale) was one-sixteenth of the average mass of oxygen atoms as found in nature.
Thus the two amu’s clearly diverged: one based on one-sixteenth of the average mass of the oxygen atoms in the chemist’s laboratory, and the other based on one-sixteenth of the mass of an atom of a particular isotope of oxygen.
