Passage via a river or stream is the usual way rainfall on land finds its way to the ocean or other large body of water such as a lake.
Rivers begin at their source in higher ground, either rising from a spring, forming from glacial meltwater, flowing from a body of water such as a lake, or simply from damp, boggy places where the soil is waterlogged.
River management is an ongoing activity as rivers tend to 'undo' the modifications made by man. Dredged channels silt up, sluice mechanisms deteriorate with age, levees and dams may suffer seepage or catastrophic failure.

Also sometimes associated with the United Kingdom, though not constitutionally part of the United Kingdom itself, are the Crown dependencies (the Bailiwicks of Jersey and Guernsey, and the Isle of Man) as self-governing possessions of the Crown, and a number of overseas territories under the sovereignty of the United Kingdom.

"Rivers" seems to be one of those albums that grows on you every time you listen.
One listen to Rivers clearly showcases his unique style, and just like a newly traveled river, you never know what is around the next bend sonically.
Where the instruments are predictable for each tune (piano, upright bass, percussion, and some cello), as is the general tone of music (laid back, very thought provoking), the progressions and melodies are completely unique and quite unpredictable.

American Rivers' president, Rebecca Wodder, says the Army Corps of Engineers -- which operates dams in the river -- is "draining the life" out of the Missouri in an effort to maintain a "trickle" of barge traffic.
The second river on the list -- the Big Sunflower in Mississippi -- also highlights the long-standing conflict between environmentalists and the Corps of Engineers.
American Rivers says the Big Sunflower is threatened by a giant flood-control project -- one that Wodder says would drain 200,000 acres of wetlands.

It meets Criteria 1, 2, 3, 4, 7, and 8 for inclusion in the List - in regard to the Fish Criteria, because of the enormous water exchanges and substrate variability a wide diversity of species and life history stages are present.
The site qualifies for the List under 7 of the 8 Ramsar Criteria and is a particularly good example of a relatively unpolluted coral reef system in a near-natural state, of special value for maintaining the genetic and ecological diversity of the region, especially its marine life.

From the opening, "Tired of Sex," which rants about the frustrating easiness of groupies, to the new wave pop of "Getchoo" to the epic genius of "The Good Life," there's much more diversity here than the Pixies-influenced bouncy grunge of their debut.
When I first heard Pinkerton, I thought, "Whoa, Rivers, what do you think you're doing?" (Rivers Cuomo is the band's frontman.) On the surface, Pinkerton sounds like a desperate, overly emotional and possibly even annoying this-is-my-life-story kind of album.
Spin magazine named it the 61st best album on a list of the top 100 albums in the last 20 years, no other Weezer album made the list.
