Transportation is the movement of people and goods from one place to another. The term is derived from the portare ("to carry") and Latin trans ("across") . Industries which have the business of providing equipment, actual transport, transport of people or goods and services used in transport of goods or people make up a huge broad and important segment of most national economies, and are collectively referred to as transport industries.
The field of transport has several aspects: loosely they can be divided into a triad of infrastructure, vehicles, and operations. Infrastructure includes the transport networks (roads, railways, airways, waterways, canals, pipelines, etc.) that are used, as well as the nodes or terminals (such as airports, railway stations, bus stations and seaports). The vehicles generally traverse on the networks, such as automobiles, bicycles, buses, trains, aircrafts.

The term "fashion" generally applies to a popular mode of expression, but quite regularly applies to a personal style of expression that may or may not apply to all. Inherent in the term is the design that the mode will vary more quickly than the culture as a total. The terms "fashionable" and "unfashionable" are in use to describe whether somebody or something fits in with the recent popular mode of appearance. The term "fashion" is regularly used in a positive sense, as a synonym for glamour and style. In this sense, fashions are a type of public art, through which a culture examines its design of beauty and goodness. The term "fashion" is as well sometimes used in a negative sense, as a synonym for fads, trends, and greed.
Fashion in clothes has acceptable wearers to express feeling or unity with other people for millennia. Modern Westerners have an extensive choice presented in the selection of their clothes. What a person chooses to dress in can reflect that person's personality or likes. When people who have cultural type start to wear new or different clothes a fashion trend may start. People who like or esteem them may start to wear clothes of a similar style.

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.
