       Badminton is an indoor sport that has been greatest since the end of world war II. It is a sport for two or four players. The players use long lightweight handled rackets to hit a shuttlecock. A shuttlecock is usually made of cork and feathers. The court is about 5, 2  meter wide and 13,4 meter  long for singles, and 1 meter wider for doubles.
       In order to score,  a player has to serve or put the shuttlecock into play. A server can score when the opponent lets the shuttlecock fall to the ground or by a fault. A fault occurs when the opponent,  in an attempt to return the shuttlecock safely, allows it to go into or under net. To hit the shuttlecock out of  the playing area is also a fault. Men win a game after collecting 15 points. In women's singles 11 points win a game.
       Badminton has been growing very rapidly. It grows either  as a backyard recreation or as a competitive sport. The international Badminton Federation was founded in 1934 with nine nations represented. Now it has members in more than 40 nations, and a world tournament for both men and women is held every two years.

       Two very important fuel gases are made from  petroleum  during the retaining process. They are butane and propane, which are similar to methane. These gases are sold in small tanks and are used for cigarette  lighters, portable welding torches,  and camping stoves. Mixture of the two gases are stored under pressure as a liquid. For this reason the mixture is called  liquefied petroleum  gas or LPG. As it is used a liquid in the tank evaporates and leaves the tank as gas. The main use of  LPG is as a cooking fuel on farms and  in small towns where a central gas making plant would not be practical. Instead of  piping the gas to house where  it is to be used,  a tank of  LPG is connected directly to the stove. Because  LPG is sold in tanks,  it is often called tank gas or bottled gas.
       LPG is also used to a small extent to run automobiles and tractors.
