It's not Coca-Cola itself but the Stepan Company. They are the only company in the US allowed to import coca leaves to the US. They extract the cocaine for medical uses from the leaves and then ship the cocaine free leaves to Coca Cola.
In case OP doesn't reply:
Hitler did, in fact, fix these problems to a large degree. The KDF and DAF ensured that everyone who wanted work, had work. A lot of people were drafted into the army, and sections of the army was used in road building and public works projects. Hitler also started rearmament in full force, which meant a lot of industrial output and more jobs in the industrial sector.
There was, however, a fair amount of shady accounting going on. Undesirables, such as handicapped and disabled people, gypsies, Jews, were not considered to be official German Citizens, and were often not considered in the context of the surveys for employment. This led to far lower perceived rates of unemployment than was probably true.
The Tim Mason argument also goes to show that the German Economy was close to imploding due to a number of economical and political factors. While I don't think that's why Hitler went to war (which is what Mason suggests), it does give insight into how far he went towards fixing the issues that Germany had.
Kinda. Even though the first color photograph was produced by Thomas Sutton in 1861, it wasn't until the late 1890's that color photography was somewhat viable enough to be used by the public and not just an experimental technology.
The first non-colorized color photograph of Lady Liberty is this one, captured circa 1900 and depicting the statue during its color transition to the blue-green we see today. Although the oxidative process was already underway - it took only two decades for it to completely change the statue's color and by 1906 it was completely covered in verdigris - we can clearly see a hint of its original copper color in the photo.
Although no color photo of the Statue of Liberty without its patina exists, there's plenty of artistic renditions of how it would have looked at the time such as this.
> In 1880, the age of consent was set at 10 or 12 in most states, with the exception of Delaware where it was 7.
edit: for those of you crying 'but the US changed the law, they are backward'. Yes, I agree that Pakistan needs to change the age of consent (clearly some Pakistanis are trying), but my point is more about the childish attacks on Muhammed for supposedly marrying an 8 year old. That was ~~1000s~~ 1500 years ago, yet in the US you could legally marry a 7 year old less than 150 years ago. Hopefully that provides some context and enables you to think logically about how different times had different societal norms. Calling Muhammed a pedophile makes no sense given this info, unless you accept that the US sanctioned widespread pedophilia less than 150 years ago.
That's the whole point to mutual assured destruction. Nuclear weapons set the stakes so high that so states will shy away from head on confrontation for risk of starting nuclear apoocalpse, where we then see the cold war played out in a series of proxy wars rather than the convential warfare methods that were waged for the former half century.
I was back checking this and found this interesting tidbit of information:
The use of two different unit systems was the cause of the loss of the Mars Climate Orbiter in 1998. NASA specified metric units in the contract. NASA and other organizations applied metric units in their work, but one subcontractor, Lockheed Martin, provided thruster performance data to the team in pound force seconds instead of newton seconds. The spacecraft was intended to orbit Mars at about 150 kilometers (93 mi) altitude, but incorrect data probably caused it to descend instead to about 57 kilometers (35 mi), burning up in the Martian atmosphere."
The Mongol invasion of Khwarezmia. It was in this campaign that the bloodiest massacres by Genghis Khan occured. Khwarezm would never rise back up as a political entity after that except for the short-lived Khorezm People's Soviet Republic.
When the Prime Minister of Japan and most of his cabinet are members of a revisionist group that espouse the belief that Japan liberated East Asia from European colonisation by invading them and installing a far more brutal regime than the Europeans ever were and outright denying Japanese war crimes ever happened, pretty sure the Japanese government is doing this just to get South Korea off their backs.

The trouble is, you can't extract energy from something hot alone - it violates the laws of Thermodynamics. To extract energy, you need to build a Heat Engine that moves heat energy from something hot to something cool. That's what it would do at the surface - work between the hot fluid and the cool local environment.
You could put a turbine at the bottom of the hole, but then you'd need to move low-temperature working fluid from the surface to the turbine for it to have something to work against. Considering that, plus the difficulty of building a turbine and generator that can work under those conditions, maintaining it at the bottom of the hole, and getting the electricity to the surface, it's a no-go.

>Baal (/ˈbeɪl/ bayl; sometimes spelled Bael, Baël (French), Baell) is in 17th century goetic occult writings one of the seven princes of Hell. The name is drawn from the Canaanite deity Baal mentioned in the Hebrew Bible as the primary god of the Phoenicians.
>In this unholy hierarchy, Baal (usually spelt "Bael" in this context; there is a possibility that the two figures aren't connected) was ranked as the first and principal king in Hell, ruling over the East. According to some authors Baal is a Duke, with sixty-six legions of demons under his command.
Interesting fact: During late 1950s to early 1990s Soviet Union had more than 400 000 students of African decent.

And anyway, why would she do that on purpose? Neo-Nazi dogwhistle? That's the last demographic the Trump camp needs to win over, he's had them locked down for a long time already. It doesn't make any strategic sense. And yeah, I know, Trump's campaign thus far hasn't exactly been marked by cohesive, cogent strategy, but he and his surrogates have been using much easier and more direct methods to let bigots know that he's their man.
In my humble opinion, you're just seeing meaning where there really isn't any.

The head coach of Coastal Carolina is the ex-CEO/current Chairman of the Board for TD-Ameritrade. He's a 100% badass, decided he was done making billions of dollars and went back to coaching football. He apparently doesn't donate to his own program / buy them the best facilities, as well he could, as a matter of principle because he wants to build the program based on the merits of his coaching. And it's not like he's a bad coach that's getting by on reputation: he's 39-11 and has won his conference each of the three years he's coached.
Celsius and metric conversions, for people outside the US:

What are you trying to say?
edit:: Nevermind, figured it out: You've edited this, and rather badly, to make a political statement. Well done you. Except it's shit.
This is a common myth - but isn't true at all.
The myth exists because in 1976 during a good-will speech for the bicentenary, the government formally rescinded 'Missouri Executive Order Number 44' (Issued in October 1838) .
And it was that executive order that permitted the killing of Mormons.
If you stop reading at that point you'd believe the myth is true.
However not only had the executive order had zero legal force since the end of the Mormon war in November 1838, it is worth remembering that not only was the governor of 1838's political career was totally destroyed simply by issuing the order, there was not a single death as a result of the order. (There was a massacre 3 days after the order was made .. but the militiamen who did it hadn't been told about the order when they did it)
Not only that - it wasn't a Law - it was an order to the militia, which fundamentally was only in place for less than a month.
So it was just a good-will gesture .. rescinding an order that hadn't had any legal force for the past 130 years.
(PS: It was the 1838 Mormon War that was when LDS leader Sidney Rigdon gave his famous speech:
"... we will follow them until the last drop of their blood is spilled; or else they will have to exterminate us, for we will carry the seat of war to their own houses and their own families ..."
In the skirmish, the Mormons had plundered and burned down at least 50 homes.
For a summary of the war - see http://www.wikiwand.com/en/1838_Mormon_War )
> Its stated goal is to provoke Western sensibilities — particularly as a response to satirical cartoons of the prophet Muhammad published in numerous European outlets in recent years. The "contest and exhibition intends to display the West's double standard behavior towards freedom of expression as it allows sacrilege of Islamic sanctities," Fars reports.
The real double standard is that nobody is going to fucking suicide bomb the holocaust deniers.
Because most western democracies embrace Voltaire's enlightened thinking on the freedom of expression, eloquently summarized by Evelyn Beatrice Hall:
> "I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it"
This exhibit may be designed to showcase one double-standard, but it will in fact to the exact opposite: modern, global societies protest offensive speech with words. Medieval, fundamentalist extremists protest offensive speech with violence.
There's you fucking double-standard, you nutjobs.
tl;dr The lack of killing artists in response to this exhibit will succinctly illustrate fundamentalist Islam has lost the moral high ground.
I'm afraid I can't take the blame personally as I've never tried whale meat. I've been told that it's not that great, though, so I don't really understand why we still keep whaling.
Anyway, our whaling is super humanitarian because we blow whales up instead of just stabbing them slowly to death, so no big deal, right?
If anyone is wondering why he can't drink, I believe, from my understanding of rabies, it is because once rabies enters the brain it changes some behaviors of the host. There is the more commonly known behavioral change of making the host more aggressive, but there is another one (the one displayed here). What rabies does, is that it makes the host "afraid" of water and unable drink it. This is key because when you add this with the aggression, you get a host that wants to bite or attack something else with a mouth full of infected saliva that the host cannot swallow or wash out do to this fear of water, thus making the passing on of rabies much more effective. ~~I'm not sure what it changes in the brain though to cause this so maybe someone with a little bit more experience can help out.~~
Edit: Here's an interesting NPR RadioLab piece on rabies and the Milwaukee Protocol and Jeanna Giese, one of the few people to survive rabies without receiving the vaccination
TL;DR?: He's scared of water
Edit 2: As /u/MrsMasterBlaster and /u/Tikka_T3 pointed out the fear is more of a reaction to the muscles in the man's throat spasming. He doesn't want the rabies to make his throat to hurt so he doesn't like the water.
>less than 2% of the Finnish population would like Karelia returned to Finland.

I should also add that this is one of the oldest and most famous antisemitic conspiracy theories, predating the whole modern conspiratard movement by quite a bit. Goebbles, for example, made a propaganda film about them, but it was a famous antisemitic trope way before that as well. They're the original "international Jewish bankers" neo-Nazis love to talk about.

Yes, but this proof has to be made in a stronger formal system. For example, the continuum hypothesis is undecidable in ZFC, and the axiom of choice is undecidable in ZF.
The reason I'm linking undecidable statements is because technically you could say that any negation of a theorem is unprovable (since it's false), but this assumes that the formal system you are operating in is consistent, a claim which is in itself undecidable in that system.
It's an extremely grey area for most countries. I know in Canada it's completely illegal to own, but other nations allow it in some cases. A lot of translators/artists/writers make lolicon 'safer' to own/read by having a character say they're 18 (even though they certainly don't look that way).

Deserts that have regular flash floods often have a layer of soil called caliche that is non-porous and prevents water from soaking into the ground (which is part of the reason those places are deserts to begin with). So it isn't just that it rains harder, but also that the rain has nowhere to go.

Okay, present yourself with the scenario: Your home country is deep in debt, your currency is worthless. Your government, whilst ostensibly a democracy, is under constant threat from TEH JEWISH FORCES OF EVIL. Your people are starving and hopeless. You know that if the filthy Allies force you into a position of seeking an 'honourable peace' the 'Third Reich' will be extinguished in Europe for ever and literally tens of millions of pure white Aryans deemed by the Jews to be subhuman will be usured and worked to death. You need to keep Germany supplied at all costs, and that requires free labor from undesirables.
At this point, a man brings you a report on some Jew who shot a German diplomat. Even if you're not racist (which Hitler was), would you scapegoat the Jews, destroy their shops, and put them in concentration camps? Well of course! After all, Hitler was a complex individual. Add to that, any food that does arrive in the area must, by the brutal logic of war, go to soldiers fighting the Allies first. None to feed the Jews!
Did racism play a part? of course it did. Did hitler consign millions of Jews to death out of racist hate? of coruse not. Thats a disgusting attack on a man in an impossible situation.
Also: 'completely callous to the loss of human life'. Yeah, no shit.

His value of human life might just be a little warped at this point after seeing things like 'Dresden literally reduced to a cinder tonight' on documents every day for about 10 years.
Conclusion: Hitler did nothing wrong.

Mangled Latin makes me cringe. Silly wabbit! "-trix" doesn't belong to this form of word. The female form is also pedant.^1
You're mistaken in saying that "woman" cannot be used to modify other nouns. Woman is a <em>noun adjunct</em>. It is simple as chicken soup or a dog park.
So you skipped a class in the parts of speech unit. We won't tell if you won't.
I'm not saying that it's a very feminist usage, but it's grammatically correct. There are fascinating feminist authors who have elaborated on all the anti-woman biases language has^2.
^1 If you note the etymology, Pedant comes from the Italian pedante (m and f), which probably originated as Latin paedantis (genderless).

When you live under the thumb of a Narc, they limit your options. But when you become an adult and gain independence, you have a million options open up. In your case, you could try to be more feminine, or embrace our masculinity, or go for something in-between, or switch back and forth as you please, et cetera. This new, huge range of choice is thrilling, but also overwhelming. "What if I pick the wrong identity? What if I embarrass myself, or still don't feel happy?"
This anxiety is your first enemy. There are lots of methods for dealing with it — self-care, 'how to not give a f@#$', rejection therapy, smoking reef, etc. If it helps, connect the anxiety with the idea of 'The Man' trying to hold you down ('the Man doesn't want me to be comfortable with my body because it's something He can exploit').
What the anxiety will try to prevent you from doing is this: Imagining your ideal self. I encourage you to come up with keywords that represent your image of a great person (e.g. friendly, thoughtful, heroic, hard-working, etc.). The anxiety will try to say 'oh you can NEVER be friendly because people will reject you!' and 'why bother helping others when no one will notice'.
Will this ideal self end up being male or female or something else? I encourage you to keep an open mind. And remember: This image will naturally fluctuate over the years. The rest of your life will be spent making adjustments so that you can always be your ideal self.

Field: Plant Biology
Much of what I study is related to the plant hormone auxin. The distribution of indole-3-acetic acid (IAA) throughout plant tissues is largely responsible for controlling plant architecture. For instance, lateral organs (leaves, branches, flowers, etc.) initiate from the shoot apical meristem at sites of local high auxin concentrations. Today, we spend a lot of effort understanding how the patterns of auxin distribution are made, mostly focusing on the role of polar auxin transport proteins like PIN-family proteins.
While Darwin predates the work that identified the chemical and the genes responsible for its synthesis, transport, and degradation, a lesson on auxin isn't complete without mentioning Darwin.
Darwin performed the first experiments that identified some sort of communication between the shoot apex and the hypocotyl (seedling stem) of seedlings.
It was a fairly simple experimental setup, but the conclusion is quite powerful. Using a single light source and various objects to shade plant parts, he gained crucial insight about how plant parts interacted.
He demonstrated that the shoot apex was sensing the light, but the result occurred in the a different tissue. In other words, plants were not dumb masses of cells that simply propagated, but consist of dynamic tissues that interact.
Later experiments would demonstrate that the signal was a diffusable chemical eventually identified as IAA. These experiments use the same experimental system; young shoots bending toward light sources. Of all the complex behavior that plants demonstrate, this simple model yielded insights because it was easy to manipulate and very robust.
There's some truth to that, but I think it's really just conterintuitive statistics, like the Birthday Paradox.
Basically, all the competent programmers have jobs and are not looking for employment. People interviewing don't have a job for one reason or another. Of course, some people want a change of pace to work on some new sexy project, or are looking for a pay bump. But I'd bet that you're not the first/only position that interview candidate is looking at.
So let's say in our pretend world there's 100 programmers and 10 job openings: 5 are rockstars, 20 are above average, 50 are average, and the rest below average.
The top five will surely get the job, and just for fun we'll say that 4 of the above average and one average make the cut as well. So that leaves 16 above average programmers vs 74 that are average at best. It's not like they decide to go become chefs instead, and it's unlikely that the ones with jobs are looking for new ones, so when the next job opening gets posted, they all apply. About a fifth of these guys are 'hiring potential', the rest just not good enough to make the cut.
And so this is why you see programmers apply for senior Java positions that can't tell you what an Interface is or what the super keyword does, or that can't write basic for loops, or write a substring function. I phone interviewed a guy once that claimed to be a Java expert. I asked him what the 'this' keyword in Java meant and he told me it was a trick question. Java doesn't have 'this', he said, it's a C++ thing. I've also see web devs that don't know the difference between POST and GET requests.
tl;dr All the competent ones have jobs, and the incompetent don't stop searching for a long time, so you interview them over and over.

Whataboutism is not inherently garbage. It is perfectly valid when the the discourse at hand (in this case, that of the general public and media) posits or insinuates absolutism about something. That is, when people make the claim that only Islam can produce such types of violence, or even that Islam is especially prone to such violence. In such a discussion, a whataboutism is merely a proof by counterexample.
Recall that a supernova follows when a star "falls into itself" (gravitational collapse). This implosion can be modelled by the same physical laws that tell us how planets go around the sun ^^see: ^^Free-fall ^^time, and the result is less a second, depending on the density of the collapsing core (~10^9 grams/centimeter cubed).

Then a mod battle ensues during which the thread in question is reinstated and delisted several times. Of course, zero transparency or accountability as to why this happens or how "the numbers are bogus" or anything. Zero communication.
Do you know something I really liked about the ancient Athenian democracy? The Ostracism procedure, where the citizens could (only once a year) vote to exile someone, anyone from Athens. No reason was needed nor defense could be argued. Only enough votes.

The units first served on the Eastern Front, based at Alt-Auz and Vilua in Kurland until August 1917. Almost all missions were flown at night with 770 kg (1,698 lb) bomb loads, operating between 6,500 and 7,800 feet (2,000 and 2,400 m) altitude. Missions were of three to five hours' duration.
Rfa 501 was transferred to Ghent, Belgium, for operations against both France and Great Britain, arriving September 22, 1917, at Sint-Denijs-Westrem airdrome. Rfa 501 later moved its base to Scheldewindeke airdrome south of group headquarters at Gontrode, while Rfa 500 was based at Castinne, France, with its primary targets French airfields and ports.
Rfa 501, with an average of five R.VI's available for missions, conducted 11 raids on Great Britain between September 28, 1917, and May 20, 1918, dropping 27,190 kg (27 long tons; 30 short tons) of bombs in 30 sorties. Aircraft flew individually to their targets on moonlit nights, requesting directional bearings by radio after takeoff, then using the River Thames as a navigational landmark. Missions on the 340-mile (550 km) round trip lasted seven hours. None were lost in combat over Great Britain (compared to 28 Gotha G bombers shot down over England), but two crashed returning to base in the dark.
Four R.VI's were shot down in combat (one-third of the operational inventory), with six others destroyed in crashes, of the 13 commissioned during the war. Six of the 18 eventually built survived the war or were completed after the armistice.

Pretty sketchy, if you ask me.
Check out Best Actress - one nomination, back in 1935, and she wasn't even asian by race. She was Anglo-Indian, which in her case means she was born in India to a white family, technically making her Asian by birth but not by race.
The two Best Actors, Ben Kingsley and Yul Brynner; almost the same deal.
Their roles are also extremely limited too; if you are Asian its either some martial arts thing, or someone who is super brainy. If you are Hispanic/Latino it's almost always a gangster or grounds keeper.
You're kind of asking two different questions here. Yes, by the intermediate value theorem there must be a solution. Even an exact one. That doesn't mean you can write it down using the tools available to you, and in fact this applies here.
Sometimes you can solve such equations^(1) using the Lambert W-function, which defines W(z) as the number that satisfies W*e^*W = z.
If it feels like cheating, it's because it kind of is. But you've been cheating like this in all your maths classes. Before, we couldn't solve equations such as x^2 = 2, but after “inventing” the square root function, we can! The solution is √2. The situation here isn't really any different.
^(1) You get x = –2*W*(½) in your case. (Fixed)
It's not like that matters in the Korean War. Most of the weapons used in the Korean War were leftovers from World War II. The Soviet Union even provided German rifles seized from Nazi Germany for North Korean use.
But that's wrong. The aftermath section on the very link you provided states that the Spanish retains their naval superiority. The fall of the Spanish Empire was not linked to the failures of the Spanish Armada at all. The Spanish Empire didn't even decline until the 19th century. That's long after the events of the Spanish Armada.

I like this piece cause it's very detailed, almost like an art on its own. It seems that characters are on boat sailing Volga. The picture in upper right corner is "Barge Haulers on the Volga" depicting laborers hauling barge in 1870's Russia. Boy reads Nekrasov who is known for "Who is Happy in Russia?", a poem about misfortunes of Russian people. There's Pravda on the table, the article title is "Great projects of Communism" (though it's hard to read).
The answer to your question lies somewhere between "no" and "we can't know".
If the no-hair conjecture holds, there's nothing you can know about a black hole except for its mass, angular momentum and charge. You're not allowed to know anything about the mass distribution within the black hole, and hence if there is a surface in there. In general relativity, the general assumption is that there is no surface, just a spacetime singularity. We don't yet know how this fits with quantum mechanics, but we'll have to wait until a theory of quantum gravity is established.
That's not MAD at all. Nuking a few military targets will not destroy the United States.
>Mutual assured destruction, or mutually assured destruction (MAD), is a doctrine of military strategy and national security policy in which a full-scale use of high-yield weapons of mass destruction by two or more opposing sides would cause the <strong><em>complete annihilation</em></strong> of both the attacker and the defender.
USA and Russia (possibly China too) can do that. No other countries can perform MAD otherwise. Well unless Vatican City and San Marino secretly have a single nuke each and then nuke each other.
I thought Parise came because his wife is a nurse and there's a large medical community in the Twin Cities area; giving her many job opportunities and the ability to keep working in a field she loves?
EDIT: Guys it was a joke! A joke I stole from the sports talk radio station show The Common Man Progrum on KFAN in the Twin Cities. It's literally something Craig Button said, seriously said, after Zach and Ryan signed with the Wild.
As I have linked below this comment there is a special "tournament" that the radio program does every year called The Preposterous Statement Tournament. It takes comments made by sports personalities, athletes, celebrities, and people from the station itself that are preposterously ludicrous and makes a bracket out of them and lets listeners and fans vote the statements through the bracket until they pick the ultimately preposterous statement of the previous year. To put it simply, it's fucking hilarious and it grows in popularity every year. There is a "Selection Show" every year that they do live on the air. They even have a Hall of Fame! Here is the same link that is below. It's this year's selection show. Doesn't have the "Parise's wife's job statement" on it but it's still funny as hell and worth your time. Listen to it at work, while working out, whenever; trust me it'll make you laugh. It's the top podcast link on the page.
Hypergiants are terrifyingly huge....now imagine something that grew even bigger and became so massive it collapsed in upon itself and has so much gravity not even light can escape!
EDIT: Also, one of the largest known stars, VY Canis Majoris has a diameter of 13.2 AU, which is large enough that if it were at the center of our solar system, its surface would extend beyond the orbit of Jupiter.
>Controversially, de Valera formally offered his condolences to the German Minister in Dublin on the death of Adolf Hitler in 1945, in accordance with diplomatic protocol. This did some damage to Ireland, particularly in the United States – and soon afterwards de Valera had a bitter exchange of words with Winston Churchill in two famous radio addresses after the end of the war in Europe.

It sounds like you're talking about something like semantic primes, but beware, because I don't believe they are a generally accepted idea.
> Given the dictionary definition of any given word, can we rewrite that word using a countable number of words as the "basis" of the language?
Since every dictionary contains a countable (nay, finite) number of words, that's of course true.
Ear pulling is an event at World Eskimo Indian Olympics, other events incude Knuckle Hop or Seal Hop, Muktuk Eating, Nalukataq (Blanket toss) and more.
The broad overview is that your body has two methods of fueling itself:
Glycolysis. This one uses glucose and is the one most people are on. http://www.bio.miami.edu/tom/courses/protected/MCB6/ch12/12-03.jpg
Ketosis. This is a "backup" system (not an accurate description but it gets the point across) for when you have no access to carbohydrates to make glucose. In this situation, your body burns fat instead of carbohydrates.
Here is an image for ketogenesis: http://www.wikiwand.com/en/Ketogenesis (thanks /u/hottoddy) because of all the pseudoscience that the paleo/diet/southbeach people like to throw out there. The science backs it up, the problem is that they flood everything with BS so it's difficult to Google for it without coming across a lot of crap.
Taking ketones will not help you any, nor will all those fancy oils (MCT, Coconut, etc) if you aren't already low carb and in a state of ketosis (or near ketosis). Supplements prey on people who don't understand the science.
You can do your research on this, it will check out. It will even check out from a biochemistry standpoint if you were to go and look in chem/biochem/physiology textbooks or go into scholar.google.com and start some journal searches.
Hello and welcome! It's great to have new people here.
To clear up your confusion, this is a sub where avid fans can come together to post pictures of our favourite wrestler, John Cena, and discuss his upcoming tournaments and charity appearances.
Hope to see you here more often.
Sounds like a fact I read before on the head of family of Osman (Ottoman Empire) who served in the United States Army and worked as a librarian in New York.
Israel doesn't determine citizenship based on race, ethnicity, religion or anything else. That's why over 20% of its citizens are Muslim and Christian Palestinian Arabs.
The closest thing it has to what you claimed, is an immigration policy that gives Jews a better chance to immigrate. Not only do states make far more arbitrary immigration policies all the time (including economic status, marital status, etc.), many other states make this exact policy as well, including states like Germany, Bulgaria, Greece, Poland, and so on.
Again, like with the right of self determination, it's incredibly common, and not considered "racist" or subject to any kind of criticism, unless when it comes to Israel.
Plus it literally means "Eight paths", and possibly have ties with a buddhist concept called "The Noble Eightfold Path", which I think would be cool to explore thematically in an RPG.
STM (Scanning Tunneling Microscope) and AFM (Atomic Force Microscope) are both SPM’s (Scanning Probe Microscope). STM relies on the electric current between the sample and an ultra fine tip. This requires the sample to be electrically conductive.
AFM, in the other hand, passes over the sample with a tip and senses the attractive/repulsive force between the sample and the tip (van der Walls forces: http://www.wikiwand.com/en/Van_der_Waals_force).
Thanks to D. B. Cooper/Dan Cooper, there's now a device on airplanes called the Cooper Vane that prevents ventral stairways from being lowered during flight.
I choose to remain in communion with successors of Peter because Christ established Peter as the rock the Church is built on, and it makes more sense to me that a communion of bishops would have not only a prime bishop, but a supreme one in cases where there is dissension. While the Orthodox tend to agree Rome should have primacy, there's really no consensus on what that means. But it should mean something. And why?
>Simon Peter replied, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” And Jesus answered him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jona! For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father who is in heaven. And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the powers of death shall not prevail against it. I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.”
I don't think (a) it's coincidence that at that point Jesus changed Peter's name alone (from Simon to Peter), nor that (b) Jesus was speaking to all bishops or all the faithful there. He was doing something important. The text is clear.
We are catholic only under Peter. One cannot be catholic apart from Peter. It is more sensible to strive for communion with the Bishop of Rome than any other. It is more sensible to defer to the Bishop of Rome in contentious matters than any other.
Ultimately, the differences between the Churches in communion with Rome (including many Eastern Churches!) and those who exist outside visible communion with Rome are minor.
Put a Catholic, and Orthodox, and a Protestant in a room together, and it will be clear who's the outlier, theologically speaking.
So your meditation (and study) should be: Is communion with the Bishop of Rome important?
I'm against the death penalty too, but many supposedly civilised countries still have it - such as the United States, Singapore and even Japan.
Unless we are going to lecture those countries on abolishing it too, it's not surprising that Indonesia pays little attention over it.
Suzanne Somers was written off Three's Company because she was demanding lots of money and shares. She boycotted a few episodes so they cut down her on air time to 1 minute (she was on the phone with the others) before cutting her off entirely. <em>Source</em>
I think that part of it is the winner's curse. In order to maximize his salary, a free agent needs to solicit bids from all teams, even if he has a preference for staying with his current team (or going to another specific team). But in doing so, there's a decent chance that at least one team will, based on their incomplete information, offer the player more than he's worth. If that happens, and the player's current team doesn't value him as highly as that offer, then the player has a decision to make: whether to switch teams, or to essentially admit that he was bluffing and take a lesser offer from his current team. And plenty of players have done both.
Going back to your original question, I'd say that degrees matter. Let's take the example of Cobb. He'll be 25 by the time next season starts, so assuming he signs a deal in the range of 4 to 6 years, this could be his only big deal (or he could get one more). Let's say the Packers offer him a 4-year, $40 million deal, and the Jaguars offer him a 5-year, $70 million deal (I'd say these contracts are roughly on either ends of the type of contract Cobb might sign). I couldn't possibly blame Cobb for taking an extra $30 million to sign with a team, even if there's a decent likelihood that Cobb won't be as good catching passes from Bortles as he is from Rodgers. Remember, this contract will probably be the bulk of Cobb's lifetime earnings, so it's a decision that impacts him more than just the numbers he puts up over the next few years.
In addition, it's really difficult to project who might be good or bad a few years from now. Four seasons ago (2010), the Jets, Steelers, Chiefs, Giants, Bears, Falcons, Saints, and Buccaneers won 10+ games, and the Bengals, Broncos, Cowboys, Lions, Seahawks, and 49ers had losing records.
Katy Perry and Mariah Carey are generally well-regarded by the general public and diehard pop music fans, as well as publications that cover exclusively pop music (Billboard, etc). However, music reviewers tend like to edgier, more groundbreaking music (unless you're Rolling Stone, who still prefer aging rock acts playing the same tired songs). Katy and Mariah make enjoyable music, but they are admittedly generic and safe, and until recently, critics have shied away from giving strong reviews to anything considered too "pop" and mainstream (rockism is a thing). Artists like Madonna and Janet Jackson usually receive better reviews because they are more experimental and forward-thinking artists, that try something new with each album they released.
An interesting side-note is that there’s not only decomposition due to aging, but issues such as shark-bite or anchors from sea vessels structurally damaging the cabling.
This is probably because the Saudi king speaks Najdi Arabic, having been born and raised in Najd and from a Najdi family, whereas the Saudi redditor I linked to no doubt speaks True Arabic^TM
Probably not for a couple of reasons:
A) The US, even though not quite a superpower still had a much stronger military. It's a bit unconvieacble that Mexico would win.
B) It's unlikely that Germany could not provide funds to Mexico to support the invasion.
C) Many of the lands that were lost to Mexico would be difficult to maintain. Texas, Arizon, California, etc... were now mostly English speaking and it would be an uphill battle to keep these territories. Just think of the pain in the ass Texas was during the Alamo.
D) Argentina, Brazil, and Chile all signed a peace conference in 1914 to avoid a Mexico and US conflict. If Mexico went back on that agreement, it would sour relations with many South American countries.
In short, Mexico had more the lose than gain with an invasion.
The ABC nations organized the Niagara Falls peace conference in 1914 to avoid a full-scale war between the United States and Mexico over the United States occupation of Veracruz. If Mexico were to enter war against the United States, it would strain relations with those nations.
After the disembarkation of Provence, the black soldiers are voluntarily withdrawn from the French troops following a memo of the US chief of staff, Walter B. Smith, who wanted a separation identical to that practiced in the GI regiments, where Blacks did not fight alongside whites until the last moments of the war. Cantoned at Toulon, then sent back to Africa, the black soldiers were replaced by white recruits from the Resistance. Regarding the North African skirmishers, the succession was only partially from January 1945 when, in each division of the Army of Africa, an FFI regiment replaced a regiment of North Africa . However, many skirmisher units continued the fight during the winter of 1944 in the Vosges, as well as in April 1945 in the reduction of the pocket of Royan  and several units parade on June 18, 1945 on the Avenue des Champs -Élysées in Paris .
See the 4th section of this article, I google Translated it but take it as you will.
Instead of this, keep a prusik loop with your extension cords (it's good to hang your cords with the loop).
When you install your extension cord, put your loop on the cord with a prusik knot or a Autoblock knot and carabiner the loop to something solid. This way, if/when your cord gets pulled, it will transfer the force into the loop which will "grab" the cord tight. Back at the socket will remain slacked.
If you need to connect two cords together, you can use one of their prusik loops as strain relief.
To add on to the idea with toying with dates, perhaps we can have a decision to resetting the year count to correspond to a galactic calendar. For example, if you control or are a part of a federation/empire that controls enough territory you can force a calendar shift which gives a large debuff to trade and relations but buffs to internal unity.
