A river is a natural waterway, which moves water diagonally the land from upper to lower elevations, and is a main part of the water cycle. The water within a river is generally from rain through surface runoff and release of stored water in natural reservoirs, such as groundwater.

The beginning of a mountain river from their resource, all rivers run downhill, naturally terminating in the sea or in a lake, during a flowing together. In dry areas rivers sometimes finish by losing water to evaporation. River water may also gain access to the soil or pervious rock, where it becomes groundwater. Extreme abstraction of water for use in industry, irrigation, etc., can also source a river to dry before reaching its natural boundary.

A game is a prepared or semi-structured activity, generally undertaken for enjoyment and sometimes also used as an learning tool. (The term "game" is also used to explain recreation of different activities e.g., for the purposes of training, study or prediction, etc,) Games are generally different from work, which is usually accepted out for payment, and from art, which is more concerned with the term of ideas. However, the distinction is not clear-cut, and a lot of games may also be considered work and/or art. Key components of games are goals, policy, challenge, and interactivity. Games generally involve mental or objective stimulation, and often both. Many games help develop useful skills, serve as a form of exercise, or else perform an educational, simulation or emotional role.

Police dogs in the United Kingdom

All-purpose purpose police dogs in British police forces are habitually German Shepherds, also known as Alsatians. 'Passive' drug dogs (used to sniff people as they pass to determine whether they are carrying drugs, but not to actually touch them) are repeatedly Labradors, known for their good-natured and friendly nature. 'Active' drug dogs (which search for drugs in locations instead of on people) and explosives dogs are typically Springer Spaniels, known for their curiosity, intelligence and enthusiasm. General purpose dogs and passive drugs dogs are usually trained to search for objects as well.Handlers and their dogs must be licensed by the Home Office, following a thirteen-week course. They are approved as a team and handlers cannot work each others' dogs unless they undergo a licensing course with the other dog as well (which only lasts six weeks if both handler and dog are already fully-trained).
