Which city lies on two continents?

Istanbul, the largest city of Turkey, is in both Europe and Asia. Separated by the Bosphorous Strait, a narrow 31-km waterway that connects the Black Sea with the Sea of Marmara, one part of Istanbul lies in Europe while the other part lies in Asia. The Strait serves as a natural boundary between the continents. Two suspension bridges across the Bosphorous Strait link the two sides.

Istanbul is one of the few cities in the world to be shared by two continents. Examples of other cities that are half-European and half-Asian include the Russian cities of Orenburg and Magnitogorsk, and Atyrau, a city in western Kazakhstan. Similarly, Suez, an Egyptian city straddling the Suez Canal, belongs to both Africa and Asia. But Istanbul is by far the largest, and the only metropolis in the world to do so.

Being the only water route between the Mediterranean Sea and the Black Sea, the Bosphorus has been the site of significant settlements and cities for a long time. Of particular importance is the Golden Horn, an estuary that joins Bosphorus Strait at the immediate point where the strait meets the Sea of Marmara, and forms a large, sheltered harbour. It was here, on the European side of the Bosphorus, that the city of Byzantium (which later became Istanbul) was founded by ancient Greeks around 660 BCE.

Gardening is a valuable skill that every prepper worth his or her salt should learn. I know that I have had my own challenges in this area but I still try, even though I only do so on a modest basis. https://weedsorwildflowers.com/colorado-seed-bank/ Dark Devil Auto. Let others know how you are supporting your favorite local businesses and what they can do to help. https://weedsorwildflowers.com/pot-seeds-for-sale-online/ Did you know that pre-flowers/calyxes/flowers are actually what holds seeds if your plant gets pollinated? Once pollen touches the white pistils, the pollen gets delivered to the inside and a seed starts forming! The very name ???ruderalis??? stems from the Latin word ???rudus???, meaning rubble. The subspecies appears in urban settings thriving in broken ground, close to demolished buildings, and in roadside ditches. However, in practical terms many growers desire an increased balanced red end to the lighting spectrum they deliver to crops where fruits and flowers are harvested, ie why many growers use more blue light in vegetative growth and then increase the red portion of the spectrum once plants have started flowering and fruiting. As a result, many savvy growers have retrofitted existing HPS flowering rooms with supplemental CMH grow lights to get more light energy via ???blue??? lighting while keeping increased wattage minimal for the benefits they reap, ie higher yields of significantly better marketable qualities (firmness, color, essential oil contents, etc). https://weedsorwildflowers.com/germination-process-weed/

Increased light levels and the elimination of cold spots in the greenhouse or within the crop canopy, will have a very direct impact on crop health and productivity. This is a significant factor in late fall, winter and early spring. A fabrifoil installation is passive.
