Ken River
A RIVER is a natural flowing watercourse , usually freshwater , flowing towards an ocean , sea , lake or another river. In some cases a river flows into the ground and becomes dry at the end of its course without reaching another body of water. Small rivers can be referred to using names such as stream , creek, brook, rivulet, and rill . There are no official definitions for the generic term river as applied to geographic features , although in some countries or communities a stream is defined by its size. Many names for small rivers are specific to geographic location; examples are "run" in some parts of the United States, "burn " in Scotland and northeast England, and "beck" in northern England. Sometimes a river is defined as being larger than a creek, but not always: the language is vague. Rivers are part of the hydrological cycle

Dengue
DENGUE FEVER is a mosquito-borne tropical disease caused by the dengue virus . Symptoms typically begin three to fourteen days after infection. This may include a high fever , headache , vomiting, muscle and joint pains , and a characteristic skin rash . Recovery generally takes two to seven days. In a small proportion of cases, the disease develops into the life-threatening DENGUE HEMORRHAGIC FEVER, resulting in bleeding , low levels of blood platelets and blood plasma leakage, or into DENGUE SHOCK SYNDROME, where dangerously low blood pressure occurs. Dengue is spread by several species of mosquito of the Aedes type , principally A. aegypti . The virus has five different types; infection with one type usually gives lifelong immunity to that type, but only short-term immunity to the others. Subsequent infection with a different type increases the risk of severe complications
