Island
An ISLAND or ISLE is any piece of sub-continental land that is surrounded by water . Very small islands such as emergent land features on atolls can be called islets , skerries , cays or keys. An island in a river or a lake island may be called an eyot or ait , and a small island off the coast may be called a holm . A grouping of geographically or geologically related islands is called an archipelago , e.g. the Philippines

. An island may be described as such, despite the presence of an artificial land bridge; examples are Singapore

Also, there is a ferry connection between Denmark (Helsingør ) and Sweden (Helsingborg ). There is a bridge-tunnel combination between Denmark and Sweden further south, but still the ferry Helsingør-Helsingborg has a dense schedule

Sugar Beet
SUGAR BEET is a plant whose root contains a high concentration of sucrose and which is grown commercially for sugar production. In plant breeding it is known as the Altissima cultivar group of the common beet ( Beta vulgaris ). Together with other beet cultivars, such as beetroot and chard , it belongs to the subspecies Beta vulgaris subsp. vulgaris. Its closest wild relative is the Sea beet (Beta vulgaris subsp. maritima). In 2013, Russia, France, the United States, Germany, and Turkey
Turkey
were the world's five largest sugar beet producers. In 2010–2011, North America, Western Europe, and Eastern Europe did not produce enough sugar from sugar beets to meet overall demand for sugar and were all net importers of sugar. The US harvested 1,004,600 acres (406,547 ha) of sugar beets in 2008. In 2009, sugar beets accounted for 20% of the world's sugar production

Freight Trains
RAIL FREIGHT TRANSPORT is the use of railroads and trains to transport cargo as opposed to human passengers . A FREIGHT TRAIN or GOODS TRAIN is a group of freight cars (US) or goods wagons (International Union of Railways ) hauled by one or more locomotives on a railway, transporting cargo all or some of the way between the shipper and the intended destination as part of the logistics chain . Trains may haul bulk material , intermodal containers , general freight or specialized freight in purpose-designed cars. Rail freight practices and economics vary by country and region. When considered in terms of ton-miles or tonne-kilometers hauled per unit of energy consumed, rail transport can be more efficient than other means of transportation. Maximum economies are typically realized with bulk commodities (e.g., coal ), especially when hauled over long distances

Regions Of Denmark
The REGIONS OF DENMARK were created as part of the 2007 Danish Municipal Reform. The five regions replaced the former counties (amter ). At the same time, the number of municipalities (kommuner ) was cut from 270 to 98 . The reform was made effective on 1 January 2007. Each regional council has 41 members, among whom the regional chairman is chosen. Unlike the counties, which they replaced to a large extent, the regions are not municipalities and therefore do not have the right to display coat of arms , but they do have logotypes . As they are not municipalities they can not "shuffle money around" from one area of expenditure to another area of expenditure, that is, use money for any other purpose than has been stated specifically, but must pay money not used back rather like departments or agencies of the central government
