Western Germany

Not to be confused with West Germany.

Western Germany (German: Westdeutschland) is a region in the west of Germany. The exact area defined by the term is not constant, but it usually includes North Rhine-Westphalia. The Saarland and Rhineland-Palatinate are also sometimes included but are usually considered Southwestern Germany. Hesse is often considered as Central Germany (together with Thuringia).
West of the Harz in Central Germany, or the line between the cities of Hamburg and Munich, is the western part, but again, these distinctions must only be considered very loosely, especially, not in a political sense.
Politically, Germans often still identify the term Westdeutschland with the Bonn Republic, the Cold War-era West Germany. Therefore, the English-language distinction between “West Germany” and “Western Germany” is rarely made in German. However, the latter can be specified as der Westen Deutschlands, “the West of Germany.”

Limmu Sakka

Limmu Sakka is one of the woredas in the Oromia Region of Ethiopia. It is named in part after the former kingdom of Limmu-Ennarea, whose territories included the area this woreda now covers. Part of the Jimma Zone, Limmu Sakka is bordered on the southwest by the Didessa River which separates it from the Illubabor Zone, on the northwest by the Misraq Welega Zone, on the northeast by the Gibe River which separates it from the Mirab Shewa Zone, and on the southeast by Limmu Kosa. The administrative center of the woreda is Atnago; other towns include Saqqa, the capital of the former kingdom of Limmu-Ennarea.

These settlers came from the Arsi, Bale, Mirab and Misraq Hararghe Zones.[3]
In June 2009, woreda officials announced that two health stations and 14 health posts various health facilities, built at a cost of over 11 million Birr, were ready for service. These would some 35 health posts and five health stations currently in operation.[4]

Bella Vista is a city in Benton County, Arkansas. First established in 1965 as a summer resort town, the community evolved into a retirement community, and continues to change following incorporation in 2006.[1] The city’s struggle with incorporation began in 1977 and periodically returned as the community grew rapidly. Following the change, municipal government replaced the Property Owners Association as primary government; entering a new era for Bella Vista. The community is located on the Springfield Plateau of the Ozark Mountains. Valleys, creeks, and steep rises characterize the city’s topography. Bella Vista is located north of Bentonville and Rogers and is the northernmost city in the Northwest Arkansas metropolitan statistical area. The city has been experiencing a population and building boom in recent years, as indicated by a 60% growth in population between the 2000 and 2010 censuses.
The rapid growth of the Northwest Arkansas area, including Bella Vista, has expedited the need for a fully controlled access highway in the area. Bella Vista is the northern terminus of Interstate 49 (I-49) in Arkansas. The Bella Vista Bypass, currently a two-lane freeway that is ultimately planned to route I-49 to the south and west of Bella Vista, is under construction.

Career[edit]
Coach[edit]
From 2001 to March 2010, Ronan Lafaix was Robert’s coach. In May 2016, Lafaix, who is 12 years older than Robert, became Robert’s coach for the second time. Lafaix joined the Patrick Mouratoglou tennis academy and has coached several professional tennis players.[1]
2007-2008[edit]
Robert missed 16 months of tennis action in 2007-2008 because he was infected with the Hepatitis A virus in February 2007. In early June 2008, he returned to tennis action at the ITF Men’s Circuit tournament in Apeldoorn, without an ATP singles ranking, reaching the final as a qualifier.[2]
2010[edit]
On 1 Feb 2010, Robert broke into Top 100 of the ATP singles rankings for the first time at No. 100. Within one week of his singles rankings breakthrough and seeded no. 8, he defeated for the first time in his career a player (David Fe

Same-sex couples began applying for marriage licenses on July 13, 2015.[1][2] On July 17, 2015, same-sex couples began marrying in the territory.[3]

Village life[edit]

There is little employment directly within the village and it largely serves as a dormitory for commuters to London or to the nearby towns with hourly trains to Moorgate station.
The village has a primary school and nursery school. The co-educational Heath Mount independent school is located on the outskirts in the private estate of the Grade II* listed Woodhall Park.
The A602 formerly ran through the centre of the village between Stevenage and Hertford before a bypass was built in the 1980s through farmland to the north-east. The section of the road to Hertford was renamed the A119, and the A602 then ran out of Watton-at-Stone to Ware. Watton-at-Stone is served by a railway station on the Hertford Loop Line. The station opened for passengers on 2 June 1924, was closed on 11 September 1939 (though the line continued to run through the village), and reopened on 17 May 1982, paid for partly by public subscription.
A war memorial lies in a field adjoining the church.
In the village itself there is a small convenience store, café and takeaway restaurant as well as a hairdressers.
History[edit]
The name Watton first appeared in writing in an 11th century publication of 10th century Anglo-Saxon wills as Wattu
