RATesla's theoretical work formed the basis of modernalternating current electric power systems. Thomas Edison promised him almostone million dollars in today's money to undertake motor and generatorimprovement. However, when Tesla, an ethical Serbs, asked about the money,Edison reported reply "Tesla, you don't understand our Americanhumor." The pair becomes arch-rivals.The core of the problem was the immense disparitybetween the country's productive capacity and the ability of people to consume.Great innovations in productive techniques during and after the war raised theoutput of industry beyond the purchasing capacity of U.S. farmers and earners.5368 Left and right brainThe brain is divided into its 'hemispheres' by aprominent groove. At the base of this lies nerve fibers which enable these twohalves of the brain to communicate with each other. But the left hemisphereusually controls movement and sensation in the right side of the body, whilethe right hemisphere similarly controls the left side of the body.First discovered in 2007, "fast radioburst" continue to defy explanation. These cosmic chirps last a thousandthof a second. The characteristics of the radio pulses suggested that they camefrom galaxies billions of light-years away. However, new works point to a muchcloser origin-flaring star within our own galaxy.If bonus or “incentive pay” schemes work so well forsenior executives and bankers, why does everyone not get them? After all, manyjobs involve making important decisions or taking risks. Is there anythingabout corporate decisions and financial risks that makes these categories ofwork special in terms of how they need to be incentivized and rewarded?4574 Industrial RevolutionAs to the Industrial Revolution, one cannot disputetoday the fact that it has succeeded in inaugurating in a number of countries alevel of mass prosperity which was undreamt of in the days preceding theIndustrial Revolution. But, on the immediate impact of the IndustrialRevolution, there were substantial divergences among writers.

I am a cyclist and a motorist. I fasten my seatbeltwhen I drive and wear a helmet on my bike to reduce the risk of injury. I amconvinced that these are prudent safety measures. I have persuaded many friendsto wear helmets on the grounds that transplant surgeons call those withouthelmets, "donors on wheels". But a book on 'Risk' by my colleagueJohn Adams has made me re-examine my convictions.Adams has completely undermined my confidence in these apparentlysensible precautions. What he has persuasively argued, particularly in relationto seat belts, is that the evidence that they do what they are supposed to dois very suspect. This is in spite of numerous claims that seat belts save manythousands of lives every year. Between 1970 and 1978 countries in which thewearing of seat belts is compulsoryhad on average about five percent road accident death than before theintroduction of law. In the United Kingdom road deaths decreased steadily aboutseven thousand a year in.The ocean floor is home to many unique communitiesof plants and animals. Most of these marine ecosystems are near the watersurface, such as the Great Barrier Reef, 12,000-km-long coral formation off thenortheastern coast of Australia. Coral reefs, like nearly all-complex livingcommunities, depend on solar energy for growth (photosynthesis). The sun'senergy, however, penetrates at most only about 300 m below the surface of thewater. The relatively shallow penetration of solar energy and the sinking of cold,subpolar water combine to make most of the deep ocean floor a frigid environment withfew life forms.In 1977, scientists discovered hot spring at a depthof 2.5 km, on the Galapagos Rift (spreading ridge) off the coast of Ecuador.This exciting discovery was not really a surprise. Since the early 1970s, scientists hadpredicted that hot springs (geothermal vents) should be found at the activespreading centers along the mid-oceanic ridges, where magma, at temperaturesover 1,000 C, presumably was being erupted to form a new oceanic crust. Moreexciting, because it was totally unexpected, was the discovery of abundant andunusual sea life-giant tube worms, huge clams, and mussels -- that thrived around the hotsprings.If you want to visit Mars, visit Turkey.That’s where you’ll find lakes so salty that theonly bugs able to live there are species that could probably survive on Mars aswell.For that reason, microbiologists in Turkey havesurveyed the array of species that inhabit the Acigol, Salda and Yarisli lakes.They’re hopeful that studying some of them willyield useful insights into the kinds of biology that could help microbes existon Mars or other potentially habitable planets and moons.How does a T-shirt originally sold in a U.S.shopping mall to promote anAmerican sports team end up being worn by an African teen? Globalization,consumerism, and recycling all converge to connect these scenes. Globalization has made itpossible to produce clothing at increasingly lower prices, prices so low thatmany consumers consider this clothing to be disposable. Some call it "fast fashion,"the clothing equivalent offast food.The most vital ingredient in Indian cooking, the basic element with which all dishes beginand, normally, the cheapest vegetable available, the pink onion is an essentialitem in the shopping basket of families of all classes.A popular saying holds that you will never starvebecause you can always afford a roti (a piece of simple, flatbread) and anonion.But in recent weeks, the onion has started to seeman unaffordable luxury forIndia's poor. Over the past few days, another sharp surge in prices has begun to unsettle theinfluential urban middle classes.The sudden spike in prices has been caused by largeexports to neighboring countries and a shortage of supply.With its capacity for bringing down governments andscarring political careers, the onion plays an explosive role in Indian politics. This week,reports of rising onion prices have made front-page news and absorbed theattention of the governing elite.People will never learn that the life exists on theother planets.All the equipment must be returned to the laboratoryby Wednesday.Before architecture was invented, humans lived inunderground houses.The new biology course will be starting in February.International aid programs have been reduced by thenew government.You can buy a ticket for the lecture from the schoolsecretary.
