"Kosova" is the Albanian name and "Kosovo" is the Serbian name, sounsurprisingly the Albanian-speaking government that announcedindependence in February 2008 calls itself the Republic of Kosova. The government of Serbia, which hasn't recognized that government,calls it Kosovo. So whether you use "Ko…sovo" or "Kosova" can dependon your opinion of the situation in the place concerned. But mostEnglish speakers use "Kosovo" without implying that they believethat Kosovo is Serbian . Still, the government that the UK, the USA, Australia, and Canada-- important English-speaking states -- recognize calls itselfKosova, so maybe we should start too. The names "Kosovo" and "Kosova" come from the Serbian word "kos",which means blackbird. (MORE)

Kosovo is today mostly controlled by KLA or Kosovo Liberation Army.KLA is an albanian terrorist group, today supported by US and NATO,based on religious and ethnic hatred towards Serbs and Greeks, andhas on many occasions committed genocide against those ethnicgroups. When in 1998 Serbian Armed Forc…es attempted to attack the KLA whowere at that point harassing and slaughtering both Serbs andAlbanians in Kosovo, NATO bombed the Republic of Serbia. Eventually the Armed Forces had to retreat from Kosovo as thebombings were intentionally killing civilians. In 2008 Kosovo declared independence, which was supported by mostcountries of NATO, but rejected as illegal by most world nations.China, Brazil and Russia strongly opposed the US support to aterrorist group, and a few days later Russian Armed Forces arrivedto Kosovo, pushing the UN and US "peace forces" to leave mostsections of Kosovo. Today the question of Kosovo remainsunresolved, but it does not, and will never have independence. (MORE)

Yes! Mesobuthus gibbosus (BrullÃ©, 1832) This yellow to yellow-brown scorpion can reach 67-75 mm in length, and is distributed in eastern parts of Europe. It is reported from Albania, Greece (including many of the Greek islands), Macedonia and Yugoslavia. M. gibbosus is found in severa…l habitats.
