In Austria he's more or less...probably more less famous because of his successes in different kinds of sports. Cvolic is the winner of the Schiefling Open, the most important Badminton competition in Velden, Austria (about 8.000 inhabitants). He was the only participant at this competition. He's also "famous" because of his successes as footballer (Soccer). He is Velden's most succesfull amateur footballer (as I said, Velden has 8.000 inhabitants), unfortunately no club is interested in Cvolic. Aldin Cvolic is also going to school. He visits the HAK (buisness school) in Villach (average mark 4.3, 5 is the worst mark in Austria) and recently passed the reeximination in ENWS (English economy language). His professor is Dietlinde Morbitzer. She's famous in the whole HAK in Villach.

PILPG: Brcko (676 words)
The Bosnian government seeks the return of Brcko, arguing that the town is vital because, as a port on the Sava River, it provides badly needed access to the outside world.
Without Brcko, the Bosnian Serbs would not control a continuous area, and therefor would be compelled by geography to cooperate with the rest of Bosnia and the international community in implementing the Dayton accords and in promoting stability and security in order to keep their road and air communications open.
With Brcko in their sole possession, on the other hand, the Bosnian Serb authorities can be expected to flout the rest of Bosnia and the international community and work toward partition.
Brcko (195 words)
Brcko is located in the northeastern corner of Bosnia-Herzegovina.
It is no surprise that Brcko was a hotly contested area in the recent war in the Balkans.
In 2000, Brcko was established as a jointly governed entity (by Republika Srpska and the Bosnian-Croat Federation), but was to be supervised by the international community.
