Did Any Japanese Pilots Who Took Part in the Pearl Harbor Attack Survive Past the End of the War?

Not to my knowledge . But my knowledge is constantly growing , thankfully .I know the incomparable Saburo Sakai survived the war after losing his sight in one eye . He eventually recovered and continued to serve as a fighter commander .

However , he was serving with the units that attacked the Philippines . His post China war experience was dated Dec.8, 1941 . So he served from the same date as Pearl Harbor through to Japan's surrender .

He wrote a fascinating book of his war experience . Titled , Samurai ! , I highly recommend it

Is having a fake Nimitz-class carrier embarrassing for Iran?

Not necessarily, because mock up targets are used all the time, and some professional soldiers dress up as opposing forces (usually some sort of communist or terrorist) for practice purposes. But here are some of the worse things that happened:It sunk. How the hell do you, as a Navy, make a target ship AND have it sink outside its intended use?Their laughable Navy that clearly cannot beat a real US battle group.

As a teacher or a student, what is the saddest thing you've ever seen a student go through?

When I was in fourth grade, one of the boys in my classroom lost his younger sister to cancer. Unfortunately, I dont remember exactly what kind it was, just that she had gone through some treatment/surgery, and it hadnt worked. (especially sad since she was a toddler)I wasnt close friends with this boy, so I dont remember how he felt about it, or was dealing with it, but I do remember going to his sisters funeral, and his mother was devastated.

I know I am going to catch hell from liberals about this but it is true that we are respected in certain areas of the world. Take the Middle East. Trump has accomplished peace among countries in the Middle East Papa Bush, Baby Bush, Clinton (either of them) or Obama could accomplish, with the latest Middle East peace negotiations. So clearly there are some countries in parts of the world that respect Trump otherwise he wouldn't have been able to pull off the peace negotiations that he just did.

How do Americans feel about foreign non-white immigrants dating white American women?

I feel that people are free to choose to associate as they wish without regard to race, national origin, religion, skin color, shoe size, eyeglass prescription, hair length, or other irrelevant trivia.And I feel that those with problems in tolerating freedom of association have serious mental health issues, for which I hope they get proper treatment.

I was in the same boat as you, 4 months ago.

I was a reckless human, wanting to do just what I wanted to. Didn't feel the need to expand my horizon.

Here I am, 4 months later, reading up on a bunch of things. (God bless Quora for that!)

From reading book on the Dravidian race, to reading up 3 of Shakespeare's plays, to counselling the sons of street hawkers on their education plans, to arguing with fellow Quorans on why must India vote for Modi, I have seen it all. Who would've thought being unemployed would be a good thing? :)

How did people call each other before we started using surnames. Wouldn't it be confusing if you have 17 Marks in one village?

The crows have black hair and brown eyes. Hence John Mackay was known as Iain Crow.Donnie B MacLeod (tv presenter) was one of four Donnie MacLeods in his class.

Isn't it weird that George Weasley ended up marrying Angelina Johnson?

It has always led me (weirdly enough) to believe that George had a thing for Angelina and Fred got there first. So he got what he wanted in the end, but at what cost? It's a little weird on Angelinas part, but for Fred and George, not so much. They shared everything anyway, they were basically two halves of the same person. I imagine that if Fred had lived, they'd still be sharing a room, married couples and all

If the CEO is basically a lead dev, (theyre still not hopefully dumb) they can talk very technically and still get a yes (so long as their model is technical).

Religion by definition is anti-intellectual and anti-rational. It uses the simulacrum of intellectualism by encouraging art and music and even writing that all serves to feed belief in supernatural nonsense. It is anti-intellectual in the way religion cynically distorts the practices of intellectual activity to actually enslave minds and convince poor people to support hierarchies that are governed by an elite class. Religions reliance on fear, violence, and threats to subdue challenges is the hallmark of a system of thought that cannot stand before reasoned critique.And no religion is immune from this condition

Why did the Netherlands abandon neutrality after WWII?

Because the Nazis invaded them? And when they refused to surrender they bombed Rotterdam till no building was left standing prompting the government to surrender while the Dutch Royal family had gone into exile in Canada. The threat of repeating this procedure (which the Germans had practised at Guernica in the Spanish civil war and used on Warsaw as well) on Brussels and/or Antwerp made the Belgian king Leopold III also surrender after 18 days fighting. His choice to stay in Belgium and be captured by the Nazis would lead to a great controversy after the war.

"We Want Dignity": 75,000 Protest Against Emmanuel Macron in France
Police and anti-government protesters clashed near the Champs-Elysees and in other parts of central Paris Saturday with demonstrators hurling rocks and paint at riot police who responded with tear gas.The clashes came as thousands took part in a third weekend of "yellow vest" protests which have morphed from anger over fuel taxes into a broader anti-government movement.Crowds of protesters gathering at the Arc de Triomphe earlier found the Champs-Elysees locked down with police manning barricades and water cannon.While several dozen were allowed through after an ID check and search, many others -- some wearing gas masks or ski goggles -- remained behind and fought with police who fired rounds of tear gas.Spreading from the Champs-Elysees, protesters led police on cat-and-mouse chases through other parts of the capital, setting light to cars and construction equipment.Authorities said 160 people had been arrested by the afternoon and 65 people injured, including eleven of the 5,000 police officers mobilised for the protests.An estimated 75,000 demonstrators were counted across the country as of 3:00 pm (1400 GMT), the interior ministry said, which for the most part remained calm.The number was well below the first day of protests on November 17, which attracted around 282,000 people, and also down from the 106,000 who turned out last Saturday.Dark plumes of smoke in several parts of Paris, however, were testament to the escalation in violence, to the consternation of many of the "yellow vests", so-called for the high-visibility jackets they wear."We're a peaceful movement, but we're disorganised -- it's a mess because we don't have a leader," said Dan Lodi, a 68-year-old pensioner on the Champs-Elysees."You always have some idiots who come to fight, but they don't represent us at all," he said.Stores and restaurants along the Champs-Elysees as well as surrounding streets had boarded up windows, anticipating a repeat of the clashes last Saturday which President Emmanuel Macron compared to "war scenes".Chantal, a 61-year-old pensioner who came from an eastern Paris suburb, said she was avoiding the "hooligans" but was determined to send Macron a message on the rising costs of living."He has to come down off his pedestal," she said under cold rain on the Champs-Elysees. "Every month I have to dip into my savings."Others voiced indignation at graffiti sprayed on the Arc de Triomphe, a monument to French war dead, including phrases like "Macron resign" and "the yellow vests triumph".Although police managed to clear the square around the Arc de Triomphe toward midday, sporadic clashes spilled into nearby neighbourhoods, and hundreds of protesters later returned to the square.But further down on the Champs-Elysees, several hundred people marched calmly behind a huge yellow-and-red banner reading "Macron, stop taking us for idiots!""With all these tax hikes, there's not much left for eating at the end of the month," said Philippe, a high school cook in the Essonne region outside Paris.The "yellow vest" movement erupted on social media in October and has since become a wider protest against Macron, who is accused of failing to recognise the rising cost of living that has left many struggling.The countrywide protests have included many pensioners and have been most active in small urban and rural areas where demonstrators blocked roads, closed motorway toll booths, and even walled up the entrance to tax offices.Two people have died and dozens have been injured in the protests, which opinion polls suggest still attract the support of two out of three French people.Attempts by the government to negotiate with the grassroots movement have failed, in large part because representatives have insisted on public talks broadcast on TV."We want our dignity back and we want to be able to live from our work, which is absolutely not the case today," Jason Herbert said after walking out of talks with Prime Minister Edouard Philippe on Friday.Macron has sought to douse the anger by promising three months of nationwide talks on how best to transform France into a low-carbon economy without penalising the poor.He also vowed to slow the rate of increase in fuel taxes if international oil prices rise too rapidly but only after a tax hike due in January.But many protesters were unconvinced by Macron's speech on Tuesday."For two weeks we've been trying to make ourselves heard but nothing has changed," said Gaetan Kerr, a 52-year-old farmer from the Yonne region, said near the Champs-Elysees on Saturday."At some point Macron is going to have to listen, otherwise this is going to get worse and worse."

(God bless Quora for that!)From reading book on the Dravidian race, to reading up 3 of Shakespeare's plays, to counselling the sons of street hawkers on their education plans, to arguing with fellow Quorans on why must India vote for Modi, I have seen it all. Who would've thought being unemployed would be a good thing? :)------How did people call each other before we started using surnames. Wouldn't it be confusing if you have 17 Marks in one village?They used nicknames to identify each individual.Thus if one Mark had red hair or a birthmark or something similar then that would identify them.In Scottish or Welsh (and Irish too) towns with people with the same surname, nicknames or other identifying aspects are routinely used. The crows have black hair and brown eyes. Hence John Mackay was known as Iain Crow.Donnie B MacLeod (tv presenter) was one of four Donnie MacLeods in his class. The first one was Donnie A, second was Donnie B, etc------Why is Tripura not part of Bangladesh?It was not part of East Pakistan also; before formation, partition, and independence of Bangladesh.From the partition and independence of India in 1947; Tippera became a part of East Pakistan but the Maharani Regent of Tripura signed the Tripura Merger Agreement on 9 September 1949, thus Tripura became a Part C state of India.Part C state means a union territory which is a type of administrative division in the Republic of India, the central government directly rules union territories, unlike the states those have their own elected governments.------Can you recall some instances of minority appeasement in Indian politics?In Dec 2016, few months before Uttarakhand State Election, the ruling Congress Govt. made the below announcement.It was decided that a special break from 12:30 PM till 2:00 PM will be given to the employees from the Muslim community. Chief Minister Rawat said that since most Muslims religiously offer Namaz, they deserve to get a fixed time officially for the purpose.Uttarakhand: Muslim government employees get special break for Friday prayersIn Feb 2017, Congress party suffered a humiliating defeat with BJP bagging 57 out of total 70 seats.The proposed appeasement planned by Congress died a natural death------Isn't it weird that George Weasley ended up marrying Angelina Johnson?I got the impression from the books that George went to the Yule Ball alone (unless someone knows who he went with) and the movie seemed to confirm this. It has always led me (weirdly enough) to believe that George had a thing for Angelina and Fred got there first. So he got what he wanted in the end, but at what cost? It's a little weird on Angelinas part, but for Fred and George, not so much. They shared everything anyway, they were basically two halves of the same person. I imagine that if Fred had lived, they'd still be sharing a room, married couples and all------SPOILERS What was the biggest twist in the A Song of Ice and Fire series?That would be whether the books get finished, these showing whether or not peoples overindulgent obsession of a messy Medieval Soap Opera posing as fantasy was warranted.If they dont get finished because the author dies, no one will ever have any of their questions answered. So the greatest twist would never knowing what happens. Only having the TV series to go on, leaving all of the poor self-absorbed fans to wallow in their grief.Think I need to get some popcorn, this is gonna be good------How did Samael and Lucifer differ?If God is all powerful and he created all things and said they were good. According to Job nothing happens with out Gods approval. Nothing changes, nothing can be done because of his plan. We are his creation and not even a bird that falls in the sky he knows about. And he cures for all things. According to Isaiah we are the geat evil. The choice is easy between obedience or non-obedience. Lucifer was created to be who he is. I know nothing about this Samael. If he existed he still falls under the same rules as all creation------As an investor, how do you respond to a venture whose pitch for investment is not led nor presented by the venture's CEO or leader?Hey Jonathan -The usual gang have answered already, so cant add much.In short, its frickin weird if the CEO isnt pitching.If there is an intermediary in the room I get annoyed.Its the CEOs job to raise money. Thats the primo the VCs will spend time with going forward. Investment is a relationship game. Its not transactional.Its cool for people to have different styles. If the CEO is basically a lead dev, (theyre still not hopefully dumb) they can talk very technically and still get a yes (so long as their model is technical).------What is the most ridiculous thing you have heard from a creationist?I once asked my female primary teacher why arent women allowed to preach from the Bible?Her answer: God didnt create women as mentally capable as men. If a woman were to do do that job they would go insane!My response: So women can be police officers, firefighters, pilots or astronaughts and yet talking in front of a number of people in a church from an old book is too mentally stressful for her? Think Id prefer to be a scientist anyway thanks, so Ill keep my sanity.------What, if anything, was wrong with Gary Oldman's Sirius Black in Harry Potter?He was too handsome looking. Due to the horrendous effects of the Dementors and the inhumane conditions, Azkaban Wizarding Prison was supposed to make its inmates gaunt, rail thin, and emaciated; and with him surviving off of rats after he escaped Azkaban, his life after incarceration wasn't much better. Same thing with Sirius' cruel cousin, Bellatrix Black Lestrange; I absolutely *loved* Helena Bonham Carter's portrayal of her because she was absolutely spot on, but even with her fine dining at Malfoy Manor, she was still describe as "gaunt with heavy-lidded eyes. The makeup people really dropped the ball on them.------Is Stephen Fry an atheist?It depends on your definition of the term.Using the most common definition, which is person who is not theist then yes, Steven Fry does not believe any gods exist.But a less common definition is person who is certain no gods exist then no, Steven Fry has admitted the possibility that gods exist despite his failure to believe any do.This is the position of approximately 80% of the people who use the first definition, atheists who meet the latter definition are fairly uncommon.Now, heres the twist. IF the Christian God exists, Steven Fry insists that He must be unutterably evil. A reasonable position, which he backs up.------What were the biggest anti-intellectual movements in history?Religion by definition is anti-intellectual and anti-rational. It uses the simulacrum of intellectualism by encouraging art and music and even writing that all serves to feed belief in supernatural nonsense. It is anti-intellectual in the way religion cynically distorts the practices of intellectual activity to actually enslave minds and convince poor people to support hierarchies that are governed by an elite class. Religions reliance on fear, violence, and threats to subdue challenges is the hallmark of a system of thought that cannot stand before reasoned critique.And no religion is immune from this condition------Why did the Netherlands abandon neutrality after WWII?Because the Nazis invaded them? And when they refused to surrender they bombed Rotterdam till no building was left standing prompting the government to surrender while the Dutch Royal family had gone into exile in Canada. The threat of repeating this procedure (which the Germans had practised at Guernica in the Spanish civil war and used on Warsaw as well) on Brussels and/or Antwerp made the Belgian king Leopold III also surrender after 18 days fighting. His choice to stay in Belgium and be captured by the Nazis would lead to a great controversy after the war.
Premieres Aplenty in Paris
PARIS - In today's depressed European economic climate, it would have been easy for the manufacturers to pay little more than lip service to the Paris Motor Show.It turned out the opposite was true. Certainly the tone of the show was muted, but the launches and reveals were plentiful.Honda HONDA was quiet, choosing to launch a refreshed version of the CR-V in Europe and pull the wraps off the EV-STER, a concept shown in Japan last year.What was shown for the first time in Paris was Honda's new 1.6-litre i-DTEC diesel engine. It will power the ultra-cool European Civic hatchback (it really is attractive and not at all like the white-bread sedan sold in North America). This little mill produces 120 horsepower and boasts a combined fuel economy (based on the European cycle) of just 3.6 litres per 100 kilometres.When will it come to Canada? "No comment" proved to be the loudest answer from Honda. This engine would make a wonderful addition to Honda Canada's arsenal.Lexus LEXUS displayed its new mid-size coupe concept, the LF-CC. This rear-wheel-drive sports car and its strong styling hint at future Lexus models - it certainly has the loudest interpretation of the company's "spindle" grille yet. The grille is flanked by swoosh-shaped daytime running lights and LED projector headlights. At the back, the tail-light lenses adopt a three-dimensional design, which gives it a very distinctive look.It is different - give the designers credit for making it look like a Lexus without creating a clone. It is also, as is rapidly becoming the Lexus norm, a hybrid. In this case, it features an all-new 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine, a water-cooled electric motor, battery and all the gadgetry needed to get the power to the pavement.Inside, the dashboard is a gee-whiz kind of thing that features graphic instrumentation and more display screens than a fleet of ES 350s. The main operational zone and its iPad-like screen controls the infotainment and sundry other functions.Mazda Having revealed the four-door sedan version of the Mazda6 at the Moscow Motor Show, the wagon made its world premiere in Paris. It, too, is a very attractive piece that showcases all the company's SkyActiv technologies, including an all-new 2.5L four-cylinder engine.From its bold face to the sweeping roofline and tight tail, it marries style with versatility. The long wheelbase (2,750 millimetres) brings plenty of legroom, and there's enough headroom to accommodate someone who's 6-2 along with the requisite cargo capacity - 18.4 cubic feet with the seats up and 57.6 cu. ft. with them folded flat.The technologies employed in the wagon include the lightweight chassis, along with the SkyActiv engines and transmissions, all of which are designed to work together to promote fuel efficiency without destroying the zoom-zoom that defines Mazda. As with the sedan, the wagon includes adaptive radar-based cruise and Smart Brake Support, which includes distance recognition and obstruction warning systems. These, along with the smart high-beam and lane-departure warning systems, fall under the umbrella of Mazda's i-Activsense.Sadly, the wagon will not be coming to Canada.Mitsubishi The Mitsubishi Outlander now has a plug-in hybrid-electric derivative.While the look mirrors that of its conventional sibling, beneath the sheet metal it is very different. Up front, there's a 2.0L gasoline engine (no horsepower available at this point), along with an 82-hp electric motor and a generator. The floor between the front and rear axles houses the main 12-kilowatt/hour lithium-ion battery, where it's safe in the event of a crash.There is another 82-hp electric motor at the back. This setup delivers an all-wheel-drive capability. As it stands, the system can operate in both series and parallel hybrid modes. This means the gasoline engine can be used to drive the generator or propel the Outlander. It also features Eco (efficiency-biased) and Normal driving modes.With a fully charged battery, which takes four hours to charge using a 220-volt outlet, the Outlander has an electric-only driving range of 55 kilometres. However, bring the gasoline engine into the equation and Mitsubishi says it has a total driving range of 880 km, which is very good.Nissan The TeRRA concept car took centre stage at the Nissan stand.The boldly styled four-seater takes a leaf out of the Leaf's book, but with a twist. In its quest to deliver zero emissions mobility, the TeRRA is powered by a hydrogen fuel cell. Up front sits the same drivetrain as the Leaf. The twist? The two in-wheel electric motors that power the rear wheels. As there's no driveshaft, the TeRRA's floor is completely flat, which brings surprising interior space, given the compact exterior dimensions - it actually mirrors the Juke in size.Could the TeRRA hint at the next Rogue, at least from a stylistic standpoint? Nissan was not commenting, but speculation was rife.At the opposite end of the spectrum was the outré Juke-R. It is, for want of a better description, a funky GT-R. You see, beneath its bulbous sheet metal sits the same 3.8L twin-turbocharged V-6 and six-speed twin-clutch transmission that motivates said speedster with such vigour. In this instance, it puts forth a monstrous 550 hp and 457 pound-feet of torque. Naturally, the power is relayed to the road through all four wheels. In the end, the Juke-R warps to 100 km/h in 3.7 seconds and on to its 257-km/h top speed. Talk about diametric opposites!- Postmedia News

How Did Littlefinger Start the War of the Five Kings?
He didnt single-handedly start it (and even just a few people acting smarter, like Ned, might still have prevented it), but overall you have three big key events:Littlefinger convinced Lysa Arryn to kill Jon Arryn.Littlefinger directed the Starks against the Lannisters, letting Catelyn think Tyrion tried to kill Bran and having Lysa send Catelyn the letter at Winterfell saying the Lannisters were a threat.Littlefinger led Ned to discover the Lannister twins incest and in turn sold out Ned when Ned spoke out against Joffrey. Id also argue that hes the one who whispered in Joffreys ear that Ned should be executed• Related QuestionsWill Trump be welcome in the White House by future presidents?It doesn't matter how much you despise the former President, the new president will always respect the former for what he did to the country, for better or for worse. Trump lashed out on Obama for his birth certificate, yet they both met peacefully and the First Lady personally bought a gift from Tiffany's for Michelle Obama. At the end of the day, we're all just people trying to do our jobs. Some do it worse than others but that doesn't mean we should demean them with disrespect and rudeness. This is something that presidents respect, and something I think others should respect as well. So to finish your question with no bias, yes, he will be welcome.------Did the British media bully Meghan Markle for being bi-racial?Dont be stupid. This is the UK not the US, if no one told us she was of mixed heritage, no one here would have noticed. Fair enough, some might say she had a good tan, but thats about it.We never had slavery, so we are not paranoid about any slave uprising or offspring retribution, thats all america.Meghan? just another royal, if she does the job she interviewed for then fine, but she decided she wanted to change the deal, mess with the arrangement. Thats her perogative, but she decided she didnt fancy the work, so she shipped out.The colour of her skin has nothing to do with it.------What if an army never routed? Suppose there was an army (ancient or modern) that never suffered from low morale and never fled the battlefield. The only way to defeat them is to inflict 100% casualties. How powerful would this army be?There are a myriad number of examples of military systems that bred superiority for relatively long spans of time. But if innovation and technology fails they risk catastrophe. The Spanish Imperial Army was a dominate force in the Renaissance. The Tercio was the standard of the era. At Rocroi they were defeated but the French still had to give them honors of the field and they marched away.Discipline and morale can be a game breaker if your technology is competitive. Comes the day that its not and they will make you a nice memorial monument for the wonderful sacrifice you made cause your mojo done gone to shit.------Are you irreligious or non-religious?Both represent the same, atheism or living without religion.Although, I am not sure irreligious might mean someone who has hostile feelings for religion, while nonreligious just means ignoring religion and its practices.In that case, I am both. When people try to use their religion and spread unnecessarily wrong practices then I function as an irreligious person. But if someone is practicing his religion peacefully in his home without using the speakers to disturb people, I am nonreligious.If you will try to promote your religion, I will become irreligious. But in case, you will follow the Constitution and will keep religion a private thing, consider me simply as a non-religious person.------What is the difference between a social democracy and socialism, but more importantly, why should I care?In very simple terms, the difference between socialism and social democracy is that between thinking you know the answer and thinking the answer will be discovered along the way and might even change at some point.Yes, it's true, both socialism and social-democracy have these mantras about protecting the opressed and that economic redistribution or equalization should be the primary concern of the state. But socialism starts from affirming its principles as axioms, while social-democracy is willing to put its theory to the test of popular approval. And, as any democratic politicians, usually social-democrats are quite versatile, and coward, and appeasing, and so on, which is a good thing.But its really your decision if you care or not------Why is silicon preferred over germanium in preparing diode?Though germanium diodes were the first ones fabricated, several factors make silicon the choice vs. germanium diodes. Silicon diodes have a greater ease ofprocessing, lower cost, greater power handling, less leakage and more stable temperature characteristics than germanium diodes. Germanium diodes' lower forward drop (.2V to .3V versus .7V to 1.0V) make them better at small signal detection and rectification.The silicon diode (unless its a Schottky diode) conducts at approximately 0.6 volts. The germanium diode, however, conducts at a much lower voltage typically 0.2 volts. This makes the germanium diode better for small signals. But in majority of cases we are analysing higher signals. maximum operating junction temperature of 150C for silicon vs. only about 60C for germanium,.------What picture best defines all that is wrong here in the United States of America?Vast swathes of America looks like this:And this:And thisThose last two are bridges. What will be the cost of life lost when one of those finally crumbles?We have the money to fix our crumbling infrastructure. Yet where is that money being spent? It's spent on a military budget that exceeds the combined budget of the next seven highest countries. It's spent on jetsetting of the president to his weekly vacation spot. Its spent on bailouts for banks and government subsidies for big businesses. Its spent on astronomical healthcare costs unseen in the rest of the developed world. We have the money, but we do not send it where it needs to go.And yet we insist on calling our self a first world nation------Should I fire a software engineer for working on his side projects during office hours? I am the co-founder and CTO of a startup, and just discovered a software engineer spending two to three office hours a day on his own projects.In my experience the best guys usually do this.One trait of your best developers is they will always be learning and trying out new technologies and techniques, thats often what these side projects are about. They bring that learning into the development and design of your software.These developers will also be thinking about your hard problems while they are showering, sleeping and eating breakfast. I wouldnt get hung up about exactly how the hours get divided. Knowledge work is more about having a fresh and inspired brain than hours at the desk.Base your hiring/firing decisions based on their productivity and how their peers rate them------What does the future of cricket look like?It doesn't look too bright to me because:Test cricket is almost finished.People are loosing interest in ODIs as well.IPL has caused saturation. See empty stadiums in this IPL.T20 has killed genuine fast bowlers. Where are Akram/Lee/ Donald/Akhtar ?Youngsters in India have developed interest in Soccer.West Indians are moving towards basketball.No cricket in Pakistan.No new nations are becoming permanent member of ICC.ICC has lost Zimbabwe and Kenya in recent past.Too much of commercialization of cricket.No more Gods/ demigods in cricket.Things that can save Cricket are:Regular Test series between India and Pakistan.Ashes.More SA vs Australia matches.Lesser matches in subcontinent.Fast bowlers.Genuine spinners like Adam Zampa.------What is something you would do as a senior citizen, but never at any other age?The AdonisI saw you in passing,young god, head held high,proud mane blowingin the city's dirty breeze,clothes just enough wrinkledto make a woman believeyou just climbed out of a quickie,or stepped off of page 42in this month's GQ.Do you mindthat I turn and look as you walk by?No, of course not.You don't see me as a threat.(You don't even see me at all).But give me ten more years ...by then, I'll be old enoughto reach over,give your ass a squeeze,and say, Mmmm ... nice buns.From the book, Anatomy of a Poet, by CJ Heck------What is the greatest irony about the coronavirus?The second greatest irony is that Wuhan province is the center for face mask and ventilator production in the world.The greatest irony is that the CDC has acquitted itself no better than has Trump.By spreading disinformation about the effectiveness of face masks they are responsible for most of the deaths in the US.Our public health experts at work. Were from the government and were here to help.According to the NYT, face masks were/are 68% effective against the SARS-classic virus. This is a sibling of the current SARS-COVID virus this is our best science-based estimate of how good face masks would be today.Shame on the CDC. A 100,000 bodies should be stacked at their doorstep------Everyone in India is talking about entrepreneurship. Where do you think we are headed with this?I think since last decade the number of startups and young entrepreneurs has been dramatically increased in India. India was heavily depended on western countries for the imports of technology. All the top graduates from best business schools in India were heading to US for their desired jobs due to lack of infrastructures and opportunities here but now the time has changed. India in emerging as progressive country with improved startup ecosystem and thanks to the investors who made it easier for Indian entrepreneurs to do business in India.Investment, Mentorship, Good governance, Ecosystem are few of the things which led to the high rise in entrepreneurship.India accounts for 17% of world market which is pretty huge and with growth in entrepreneurship India will soon emerge as the biggest economy.------What would be the first Led Zeppelin song you would play for a teenager, if you wanted to introduce them to their music?Theres a lot of great answers. To really answer this well, Id almost have to know the specific teen and what their likes and dislikes are. With a lot of modern music being mass-produced in a formulaic void to sell singles on iTunes, a lot of the more complex and powerful tunes produced by Zep would probably go over their heads.I think Ill break ranks with the usual answers of Whole Lotta Love and Immigrant Song to go with something from Physical Graffiti, in particular: Kashmir. Its a longer song, which has not only a very catchy, hook driven chorus and bridge, but pretty incredible lyrics as well. Its a memorable piece, I doubt they will forget after their time is up------Why is Russia apparently such a big threat to the US?The answer question whether or not Russia is a threat to US depends on whether US would do the right thing and learn to partner up with other countries on equal basis or it would continue to position itself as if Russia was the designated enemy. At that, I would remind here that its US that passed the law that declares Russia an enemy, not the other way around. So, in the former case, there is no threat to US whatsoever. But even in the latter case, I would call Russia a direct threat but rather a force that is strictly prohibitive of *ANY* military adventure against Russia, US or not------What is something that almost nobody knows about traffic lights?Here are a couple:The cameras on top of the signal do not record video. They are only sensors which determine whether a vehicle is stopped within the frame of the camera. If so, a series of timers start calculating the time and change the signal to green or red.Also, the little black chimney-looking devices are sensors which allow emergency vehicles to turn the signal green. Thats why you see a flashing strobe in front of a fire truck or ambulance. The strobe is set to a certain speed which the device on the signal senses.Howeverdont think about building a strobe of your own. It will land you in serious trouble------How did Ronda Rousey lose her edge?Ronda Rousey never lost her edge. She never learnt how to throw a punch correctly nor to get out of the way of one. I'm sure many people saw her fight against Holm and Nunes, in both fights Rousey was trying her hardest to get in the clinch for a judo throw. Holm and Nunes knew better in which they both were able to knock Rousey out. Had Rousey figured how to improve her striking ability, Rousey would've been even more dominant and she couldve gave Nunes a run for her money. What if Rousey learned how to punch and avoid punches, we could see Rousey the potential two division champion rather than Nunes

And, as any democratic politicians, usually social-democrats are quite versatile, and coward, and appeasing, and so on, which is a good thing.But its really your decision if you care or not------Why is silicon preferred over germanium in preparing diode?Though germanium diodes were the first ones fabricated, several factors make silicon the choice vs. germanium diodes. Silicon diodes have a greater ease ofprocessing, lower cost, greater power handling, less leakage and more stable temperature characteristics than germanium diodes. Germanium diodes' lower forward drop (.2V to .3V versus .7V to 1.0V) make them better at small signal detection and rectification.The silicon diode (unless its a Schottky diode) conducts at approximately 0.6 volts. The germanium diode, however, conducts at a much lower voltage typically 0.2 volts. This makes the germanium diode better for small signals. But in majority of cases we are analysing higher signals. maximum operating junction temperature of 150C for silicon vs. only about 60C for germanium,.------What picture best defines all that is wrong here in the United States of America?Vast swathes of America looks like this:And this:And thisThose last two are bridges. What will be the cost of life lost when one of those finally crumbles?We have the money to fix our crumbling infrastructure. Yet where is that money being spent? It's spent on a military budget that exceeds the combined budget of the next seven highest countries. It's spent on jetsetting of the president to his weekly vacation spot. Its spent on bailouts for banks and government subsidies for big businesses. Its spent on astronomical healthcare costs unseen in the rest of the developed world. We have the money, but we do not send it where it needs to go.And yet we insist on calling our self a first world nation------Should I fire a software engineer for working on his side projects during office hours? I am the co-founder and CTO of a startup, and just discovered a software engineer spending two to three office hours a day on his own projects.In my experience the best guys usually do this.One trait of your best developers is they will always be learning and trying out new technologies and techniques, thats often what these side projects are about. They bring that learning into the development and design of your software.These developers will also be thinking about your hard problems while they are showering, sleeping and eating breakfast. I wouldnt get hung up about exactly how the hours get divided. Knowledge work is more about having a fresh and inspired brain than hours at the desk.Base your hiring/firing decisions based on their productivity and how their peers rate them------What does the future of cricket look like?It doesn't look too bright to me because:Test cricket is almost finished.People are loosing interest in ODIs as well.IPL has caused saturation. See empty stadiums in this IPL.T20 has killed genuine fast bowlers. Where are Akram/Lee/ Donald/Akhtar ?Youngsters in India have developed interest in Soccer.West Indians are moving towards basketball.No cricket in Pakistan.No new nations are becoming permanent member of ICC.ICC has lost Zimbabwe and Kenya in recent past.Too much of commercialization of cricket.No more Gods/ demigods in cricket.Things that can save Cricket are:Regular Test series between India and Pakistan.Ashes.More SA vs Australia matches.Lesser matches in subcontinent.Fast bowlers.Genuine spinners like Adam Zampa.------What is something you would do as a senior citizen, but never at any other age?The AdonisI saw you in passing,young god, head held high,proud mane blowingin the city's dirty breeze,clothes just enough wrinkledto make a woman believeyou just climbed out of a quickie,or stepped off of page 42in this month's GQ.Do you mindthat I turn and look as you walk by?No, of course not.You don't see me as a threat.(You don't even see me at all).But give me ten more years ...by then, I'll be old enoughto reach over,give your ass a squeeze,and say, Mmmm ... nice buns.From the book, Anatomy of a Poet, by CJ Heck------What is the greatest irony about the coronavirus?The second greatest irony is that Wuhan province is the center for face mask and ventilator production in the world.The greatest irony is that the CDC has acquitted itself no better than has Trump.By spreading disinformation about the effectiveness of face masks they are responsible for most of the deaths in the US.Our public health experts at work. Were from the government and were here to help.According to the NYT, face masks were/are 68% effective against the SARS-classic virus. This is a sibling of the current SARS-COVID virus this is our best science-based estimate of how good face masks would be today.Shame on the CDC. A 100,000 bodies should be stacked at their doorstep------Everyone in India is talking about entrepreneurship. Where do you think we are headed with this?I think since last decade the number of startups and young entrepreneurs has been dramatically increased in India. India was heavily depended on western countries for the imports of technology. All the top graduates from best business schools in India were heading to US for their desired jobs due to lack of infrastructures and opportunities here but now the time has changed. India in emerging as progressive country with improved startup ecosystem and thanks to the investors who made it easier for Indian entrepreneurs to do business in India.Investment, Mentorship, Good governance, Ecosystem are few of the things which led to the high rise in entrepreneurship.India accounts for 17% of world market which is pretty huge and with growth in entrepreneurship India will soon emerge as the biggest economy.------What would be the first Led Zeppelin song you would play for a teenager, if you wanted to introduce them to their music?Theres a lot of great answers. To really answer this well, Id almost have to know the specific teen and what their likes and dislikes are. With a lot of modern music being mass-produced in a formulaic void to sell singles on iTunes, a lot of the more complex and powerful tunes produced by Zep would probably go over their heads.I think Ill break ranks with the usual answers of Whole Lotta Love and Immigrant Song to go with something from Physical Graffiti, in particular: Kashmir. Its a longer song, which has not only a very catchy, hook driven chorus and bridge, but pretty incredible lyrics as well. Its a memorable piece, I doubt they will forget after their time is up------Why is Russia apparently such a big threat to the US?The answer question whether or not Russia is a threat to US depends on whether US would do the right thing and learn to partner up with other countries on equal basis or it would continue to position itself as if Russia was the designated enemy. At that, I would remind here that its US that passed the law that declares Russia an enemy, not the other way around. So, in the former case, there is no threat to US whatsoever. But even in the latter case, I would call Russia a direct threat but rather a force that is strictly prohibitive of *ANY* military adventure against Russia, US or not------What is something that almost nobody knows about traffic lights?Here are a couple:The cameras on top of the signal do not record video. They are only sensors which determine whether a vehicle is stopped within the frame of the camera. If so, a series of timers start calculating the time and change the signal to green or red.Also, the little black chimney-looking devices are sensors which allow emergency vehicles to turn the signal green. Thats why you see a flashing strobe in front of a fire truck or ambulance. The strobe is set to a certain speed which the device on the signal senses.Howeverdont think about building a strobe of your own. It will land you in serious trouble------How did Ronda Rousey lose her edge?Ronda Rousey never lost her edge. She never learnt how to throw a punch correctly nor to get out of the way of one. I'm sure many people saw her fight against Holm and Nunes, in both fights Rousey was trying her hardest to get in the clinch for a judo throw. Holm and Nunes knew better in which they both were able to knock Rousey out. Had Rousey figured how to improve her striking ability, Rousey would've been even more dominant and she couldve gave Nunes a run for her money. What if Rousey learned how to punch and avoid punches, we could see Rousey the potential two division champion rather than Nunes
What Is Market-led Development?
Market-led development is driven by market. Lets say A company willing to launch a new product takes service of a market research agency and this market research agency comes up with a comrehensive report, what report suggests is that there is already an established market out there for Online Coaching. If the product is ready within 1 year company might register $1M of profit and Company decides to develope this product then it is market-led development. You see the need of this product in market is already there we jsut have to spin the project and it will be consumed.Product -led developement on the other hand is about creating the need of the product in the market. For example if company comes up with E book reader and market it well by educating customers about its advantage over traditional paper back version of books. hope this helps. . thanks.1. Adult-led anime, teen-led anime or kids-led anime?I like the teen led ones. More late teens (15-19) because there usually more mature and better things happpen. Examples: Code Geass (main characters are 17-18 yrs. old) Gundam (varies, usually teens) Elfen Lied (main characters are 19) School Days (main is 14 or 15) In between: Phantom Requiem for the Phantom (main is a teen, then probably 20's) Death Note (started off 18, then into his 20's)2. Baby led weaning - breakfast ideas?If you are not adverse to a bit of mess, yoghurt with muesli and fruit is a good choice, my daughter loves it! She started getting that at 10 months of age so has a little bit more control than your son would. Since she started crawling I've had to move the breakfast cereals to a higher shelf in the pantry, yesterday when I was loading the dishwasher I turned around and she had pulled the muesli out of the pantry, opened the box and was shovelling it into her mouth.3. What led to the decline of the Ottoman Empire?There are a multitude of things that contributed to the "decline of the Ottomans"decline of the Ottomans is a term I do not like to use, as the Ottomans were only half declining. Many reforms were occurring during the 1800s, yet could not reach full potential.I think the main thing you have to look at to understand Ottoman decline is the number of wars, and rebellions the Ottomans had. Even just scrolling through a Wikipedia page you can see the number of rebellions and wars the Ottomans had. This severely damaged the Ottoman bank and made it difficult for them to continue finances. The Empire kept getting kicked while it was already knocked down. It saw too much continual war, and too much continual war leads to more and more continual war. This was to the point where in 1830, 70% of the Ottoman Government's finances went to the military, leaving only 30% to everything else. And when too little money goes to other projects in the empire, it causes very little progression. And remember that each year the revenues of the empire get smaller and smaller over time due to constant wars.This was made worse by the Crimean War, as with France and Britain intervening, it made the conflict much worse from the Ottomans because the conflict would be extended far more than it needed to. Due to the war's major logistical and financial challenges for the empire, it took out its first foreign loans in its history, placing it further into the hands of European governments, and banks. The Empire now had another economic burden, being to pay European banks back on favors4. Who led the Israelites to cross the Jordan?Yehoshua ben Nun. (Joshua the son of Nun)5. MOSFET and LED CircuitYour concept is not completely wrong, but there are some things to keep in mind:6. What led to you buying a dog?I've never bought a dog.all my pets have been rescues (some literally from the garbage).If I ignore the "buying" clause, I am a giant human marshmallow for any dog that needs love and a home. Of course I also get home security, love and all the rest of the joys.7. making led lamp?A standard 9 volt battery is a good start. Next, go to your local electronics store (radio shack or Fry's), and buy some LEDs. There are many colors to chose from, and a small package of 10 or so wo not cost you but a few dollars. Next thing to know is the polarity of the LED. This means the anode (negative) and the cathode (positive). The anode is the longer lead on a new LED. So you wo not burn out the LED, you should put a resistor in the circuit. Look to find a 430 ohm resistor, and you will probably be happy with your result.
