  Europe - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Europe is geologically and geographically a peninsula, forming the westernmost part of Eurasia.
It is bounded to the north by the Arctic Ocean, to the west by the Atlantic Ocean, to the south by the Mediterranean Sea and the Black Sea, and to the east by the Ural Mountains and the Caspian Sea (for more detailed description see Geography of Europe).
Having lived side-by-side with agricultural and industrial civilisations for millennia, Europe's animals and plants have been profoundly affected by the presence and activities of man. With the exception of Scandinavia and northern Russia, few areas of untouched wilderness are today to be found in Europe, except for different natural parks.

 North America - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
North America is a continent in the northern hemisphere, bounded on the north by the Arctic Ocean, on the east by the North Atlantic Ocean, on the south by the Caribbean Sea, and on the west by the North Pacific Ocean.
Both North and South America are named after Amerigo Vespucci, who was the first European to suggest that the Americas were not the East Indies, but a previously undiscovered New World.
North America occupies the northern portion of the landmass generally referred to as the New World, the Western Hemisphere, the Americas, or simply America.

On the north and west it is separated from North America by the Arctic and North Atlantic Oceans; on the south by the Mediterranean Sea from Africa and Western Asia.
The fauna of Europe is in accord with the climate and vegetation.
A convincing proof of this was the courageous struggle of Europe against the attempted inroads of Islam, and especially the expeditions of conquest to the Holy Land repeatedly undertaken by the various nations of Europe acting together.

 Europe embraces wind power as North Sea oil reserves dwindle   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-05)
Wind farm growth: Europe vs. U.S. Round a bend on the highway, and it's no more surprising to see giant propellers rising from the farmland than it is to see grape vines.
Also driving wind power in Europe is keen concern about global warming and the limits on greenhouse gases imposed by the Kyoto treaty, which took effect in Europe and much of the world Feb. 16.
Europe produced 74 percent of the world's wind power in 2003, compared to the U.S. share of 16 percent, according to the American Wind Energy Association.

 EUROPE
The earliest mapping attempts which suggested that the full-glacial environment of Europe had been moist and extensively forested have now been superseded, and it is apparent that the LGM environment of Europe was much more barren of vegetation than previously thought.
Mesic deciduous forest is reconstructed for the north, as a thin band along the shore of the Black Sea, and there is also woodland along the southern coast of the Caspian Sea, although no pollen localities are cited as supporting the existence of woody cover in these areas.
In eastern Europe, Huntley (1990) appears to suggest in his map that the present-day steppic region of Ukraine and Southern Russia was mainly forested, partly with pine-birch and partly with mixed conifer-hardwoods.

 North Central Europe
North Central Europe is important to world energy markets because it is a key transit point for Russian oil and natural gas pipelines.
In December 2002, the governments of Russia, Belarus, Ukraine, Slovakia, Hungary and Croatia signed an agreement to integrate and expand the capacity of the Druzhba and Adria pipeline systems in order to facilitate the transportation of Russian crude oil to the Croatian deepwater port of Omisalj.
It appears, however, that this disagreement was resolved in early June 2004, with the government of Azerbaijan committing to supply Ukraine with Caspian oil to transport on to Europe.

 Evertype: The Alphabets of Europe
Some of Europe’s languages (particularly in the Caucasus) still have no tradition of writing, though other information on such languages is provided here when it is available.
“Europe” extends from the Arctic and Atlantic (including Iceland and the Faroe Islands) southeastwards to the Mediterranean (including Malta and Cyprus), with its eastern and southern borders being the Ural Mountains, the Ural River, the Caspian Sea, and Anatolia, inclusive of Transcaucasia.
The fact that there are something like 90,000,000 German speakers and something like 12,000 Rutul speakers means that spell-checkers and grammar checkers might be expected to be made available for the former in the short term, but not for the latter.

In another analysis, the prevalence of hypertension was correlated with the incidence of lethal stroke and cardiovascular deaths across the 8 centers.
The sampling of national populations and the measurement of blood pressure are difficult to standardize; however, the 'within-country' surveys provide data that are convincing and all point in the same direction, lending credence to this publication.
Sadly, this is not always achieved in North America, or in Europe, where the problem appears to be considerably greater.
