  1. the bird’s life is an important place in the city’s life and natural circumstances tell of the birds that make the city their home to grow children and make families. crime in the three countries and the bristling tweets that come with it are the reason why there is so much talk about twitter and crime that is not being used for the newspaper articles to help the people understand. Ulaanbaatar’s waste water need not be wasted on the other places but can be used to make the good water which is the one that is useful in making plant life better and bigger.
