Datsun

topic

Datsun is an automobile brand owned by Nissan . Datsun's original production run began in 1931. From 1958 to 1986, only vehicles exported by Nissan were identified as Datsun. By 1986 Nissan had phased out the Datsun name, but re-launched it in June 2013 as the brand for low-cost vehicles manufactured for emerging markets . In 1931, Dat Motorcar Co. chose to name its new small car "Datson", a name which indicated the new car's smaller size when compared to the DAT's larger vehicle already in production. When Nissan took control of DAT in 1934, the name "Datson" was changed to "Datsun", because "son" also means "loss" ( 損 son) in Japanese and also to honour the sun depicted in the national flag – thus the name Datsun: Dattosan ( ダットサン Dattosan) . Nissan phased out the Datsun brand in March 1986. The Datsun name is internationally well known for the 510 , Fairlady roadsters, the Fairlady ( S30 240Z, 260Z, 280Z ) S130 280ZX coupes, and recently, the Go hatchback.

A legal person is capable of holding legal rights and obligations within a certain legal system, such as entering into contracts, suing, and being sued. Legal personality is a prerequisite to legal capacity , the ability of any legal person to amend (enter into, transfer, etc.) rights and obligations . In international law, consequently, legal personality is a prerequisite for an international organization to be able to sign international treaties in its own name. A holder of legal personality is called a person ( Latin : persona ). Persons are of two kinds: natural persons (also called physical persons) and juridical persons (also called juridic, juristic, artificial, legal, or fictitious persons, Latin : persona ficta ) entities such as corporations, which are treated in law as if they were persons.

Amphetamine (contracted from a lpha ‑ m ethyl ph en et hyl amine ) is a potent central nervous system (CNS) stimulant that is used in the treatment of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), narcolepsy , and obesity . Amphetamine was discovered in 1887 and exists as two enantiomers : levoamphetamine and dextroamphetamine . Amphetamine properly refers to a specific chemical, the racemic free base , which is equal parts of the two enantiomers, levoamphetamine and dextroamphetamine, in their pure amine forms. The term is frequently used informally to refer to any combination of the enantiomers, or to either of them alone. Historically, it has been used to treat nasal congestion and depression. Amphetamine is also used as an athletic performance enhancer and cognitive enhancer , and recreationally as an aphrodisiac and euphoriant . It is a prescription drug in many countries, and unauthorized possession and distribution of amphetamine are often tightly controlled due to the significant health risks assoc

It is a test bed for technologies to provide the United States with the capability to reach any target in the world within one hour using an unmanned hypersonic bomber aircraft. Development The Falcon HTV-1 program, which preceded the Falcon HTV-2 program, was conducted in April, 2010. The mission ended within nine minutes from launch. Both these missions are funded by the US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency ( DARPA ) to help develop hypersonic technologies and to demonstrate its effectiveness. Under the original plan, HTV-1 was to feature a hypersonic lift-to-drag ratio (L/D) of 2.5, increasing to 3.5-4 for the HTV-2 and 4-5 for the HTV-3. The actual ratio of HTV-2 was estimated to be 2.6.

A swale is a low tract of land, especially one that is moist or marshy . The term can refer to a natural landscape feature or a human-created one. Artificial swales are often infiltration basins designed to manage water runoff , filter pollutants , and increase rainwater infiltration . The swale concept has also been popularized as a rainwater harvesting and soil conservation strategy by Bill Mollison , Geoff Lawton and other advocates of permaculture . In this context it usually refers to a water-harvesting ditch on contour. Another term used is contour bund . Natural swale Swales as used in permaculture are designed to slow and capture runoff by spreading it horizontally across the landscape (along an elevation contour line ), facilitating runoff infiltration into the soil. This type of swale is created by digging a ditch on contour and piling the dirt on the downhill side of the ditch to create a berm . In arid climates, vegetation (existing or planted) along the swale can benefit from the concentration o

Ageing or aging (see spelling differences ), is the process of becoming older. The term refers especially to human beings, many animals, and fungi, whereas for example bacteria, perennial plants and some simple animals are potentially immortal . In the broader sense, ageing can refer to single cells within an organism which have ceased dividing ( cellular senescence ) or to the population of a species ( population ageing ). In humans, ageing represents the accumulation of changes in a human being over time, encompassing physical , psychological , and social changes. Reaction time, for example, may slow with age, while knowledge of world events and wisdom may expand. Ageing is among the greatest known risk factors for most human diseases: of the roughly 150,000 people who die each day across the globe, about two thirds die from age-related causes. The causes of ageing are uncertain; current theories are assigned to the damage concept, whereby the accumulation of damage (such as DNA oxidation ) may cause biol

History Cooper began making utility knives and butcher knives in Tremont, Pennsylvania in 1924 while working as a welder. Eventually he moved on to welding in the Virginia shipyards and began making hunting knives, fishing knives and combat knives as a second business. Cooper's knives were made by the stock removal method and he attached his handles using traditional methods such as rivets and pins until 1965 when he retired from welding and relocated to Burbank, California as a full-time knifemaker with his nephew, Greorge Cooper as Cooper Knives. As a full-time knifemaker, he noticed that his traditional methods of knife making could leave gaps between blade, guard, and handle material where water or blood could collect and eventually corrode the knife.

Ageing of Europe

topic

Percentage of the population over 65 in Europe The ageing of Europe, also known as the greying of Europe, is a demographic phenomenon in Europe characterized by a decrease in fertility, a decrease in mortality rate, and a higher life expectancy among European populations.[1] Low birth rates and higher life expectancy contribute to the transformation of Europe's population pyramid shape. The most significant change is the transition towards a much older population structure, resulting in a decrease in the proportion of the working age while the number of the retired population increases. The total number of the older population is projected to increase greatly within the coming decades, with rising proportions of the post-war baby-boom generations reaching retirement. This will cause a high burden on the working age population as they provide for the increasing number of the older population.[2] Throughout history many states have worked to keep high birth rates in order to moderate taxes, more econom

Even though the collection was initiated by the society, many of the volumes were published by Friedrich Chrysander working alone (Chrysander was the major contributor for almost all of the volumes). The wording on the title page of the volumes is "Georg Friedrich Händel's Werke. Ausgabe der Deutschen Händelgesellschaft" which translates as "Georg Friedrich Handel's works. Edition of the German Handel Society". Chrysander's work has been criticised, however the scale of his achievement is also praised. The collection's abbreviation of " HG " can be used to identify individual works by Handel; for example Handel's Messiah can be referred to as "HG xlv" (with the Roman numerals "xlv" indicating that the work is in volume 45).

The Holzer Permaculture is a branch of permaculture developed independently from the mainstream permaculture in Austria by Sepp Holzer . It is particularly noteworthy because it grew out of practical application and was relatively detached from the scientific community. Introduction Sepp Holzer started reorganising his father's property according to ecological patterns in the early 1960s after he took over the farm. As an adolescent he conducted layman experiments with plants native to the area and learned from his own observations. Since having taken over his father's property, he has expanded it from 24 to 45 hectares . according to his methods together with his wife. His expanded farm now spans over 45 hectares of forest gardens , including 70 ponds, and is said to be the most consistent example of permaculture worldwide.

Population ageing

topic

Population ageing is an increasing median age in the population of a region due to declining fertility rates and/or rising life expectancy. Most countries have rising life expectancy and an ageing population (trends that emerged first in More Economically Developed Countries, but which are seen now in Less Economically Developed Countries). This is the case for every country in the world except the 18 countries designated as "demographic outliers" by the UN.[1] The aged population is currently at its highest level in human history.[2] The UN predicts the rate of population ageing in the 21st century will exceed that of the previous century.[2] The number of people aged 60 years and over has tripled since 1950, reaching 600 million in 2000 and surpassing 700 million in 2006. It is projected that the combined senior and geriatric population will reach 2.1 billion by 2050.[3] [4] Countries vary significantly in terms of the degree and pace of ageing, and the UN expects populations that began ageing later wil

Indo-Aryan peoples

topic

Indo-Aryan peoples are a diverse Indo-European-speaking ethnolinguistic group of speakers of Indo-Aryan languages . There are over one billion native speakers of Indo-Aryan languages, most of them native to South Asia , where they form the majority. History Some of the theories proposed in the 20th century for the dispersal of Indo-Aryan languages are described by linguist Colin Masica in the chapter, "The Historical Context and Development of Indo-Aryan" in his book, The Indo-Aryan Languages. A recent Indo-Aryan migration theory proposed in the trade paperback , The Horse, The Wheel and Language , by David Anthony , a professor of anthropology at Hartwick College , claims that the introduction of the Indo-Aryan languages in the Indian subcontinent was a result of a migration of people from the Sintashta culture through the Bactria-Margiana Culture and into the northern Indian subcontinent (modern day India , Nepal , Bangladesh and Pakistan ). These migrations started approximately 1,800 BCE, after the invent

Lenin's Testament

topic

Lenin's Testament is the name given to a document written by Vladimir Lenin in the last weeks of 1922 and the first week of 1923. In the testament, Lenin proposed changes to the structure of the Soviet governing bodies. Sensing his impending death, he also commented on the leading members of the Soviet Union to ensure its future. He suggested Joseph Stalin be removed from his position as General Secretary of the Russian Communist Party's Central Committee . Document history Lenin wanted the testament to be read out at the 12th Party Congress of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union , to be held in April 1923. However, after Lenin's third stroke in March 1923 left him paralyzed and unable to speak, the testament was kept secret by his wife, Nadezhda Krupskaya , in the hope of Lenin's eventual recovery. Only after Lenin's death, on January 21, 1924, did she turn the document over to the Communist Party Central Committee Secretariat and ask for it to be made available to the delegates of the 13th Party Congre

Language family

topic

Principal oral languages (no sign languages shown) families of the world (and in some cases geographic groups of families).For greater detail, see Distribution of languages on earth . A language family is a group of languages related through descent from a common ancestral language or parental language, called the proto-language of that family. The term "family" reflects the tree model of language origination in historical linguistics , which makes use of a metaphor comparing languages to people in a biological family tree , or in a subsequent modification, to species in a phylogenetic tree of evolutionary taxonomy . Linguists therefore describe the daughter languages within a language family as being genetically related. Estimates of the number of living languages vary from 5,000 to 8,000, depending on the precision of one's definition of "language", and in particular on how one classifies dialects . The 2013 edition of Ethnologue catalogs just over 7,000 living human languages. A "living language" is simpl

This is the first time that ALMA has ever observed the surface of a star and this first attempt has resulted in the highest-resolution image of Betelgeuse available. Betelgeuse , also designated Alpha Orionis ( α Orionis , abbreviated Alpha Ori , α Ori ), is the ninth-brightest star in the night sky and second-brightest in the constellation of Orion . Distinctly reddish, it is a semiregular variable star whose apparent magnitude varies between 0.0 and 1.3, the widest range of any first-magnitude star . Betelgeuse is one of three stars that make up the Winter Triangle asterism, and it marks the center of the Winter Hexagon . It would be the brightest star in the night sky if the human eye could view all wavelengths of radiation.

A noaidi ( Northern Sami : noaidi , Lule Sami : noajdde , Southern Sami : nåejttie , Skolt Sami : nōjjd , Ter Sami : niojte , Kildin Sami : noojd/nuojd ) is a shaman of the Sami people in the Nordic countries representing an indigenous nature religion . Most noaidi practices died out during the 17th century, most likely because they resisted christianisation and king authority . Their actions were referred to in courts as "magic" or "sorcery" (cf. witchcraft ). Several Sámi shamanistic beliefs and practices were similar to those of some Siberian cultures. Description and history Noaidis, Sámi shaman, were traditionally the healers and protectors. Noaidis are said to have the role of mediator between humans and the spirits. To undertake this mediation, the noaidi communicated with the spirit world, asking what sacrifice needed to be made by a person so that they might return to good health, be successful in their hunt for food, and even for good weather. Sacrifices were designed by the noaidi to reestablish th

Gilgamesh flood myth

topic

The Gilgamesh flood myth is a flood myth in the Epic of Gilgamesh . Many scholars believe that the flood myth was added to Tablet XI in the "standard version" of the Gilgamesh Epic by an editor who utilized the flood story from the Epic of Atrahasis . A short reference to the flood myth is also present in the much older Sumerian Gilgamesh poems, from which the later Babylonian versions drew much of their inspiration and subject matter. History Gilgamesh ’s supposed historical reign is believed to have been approximately 2700 BCE , shortly before the earliest known written stories. The discovery of artifacts associated with Aga and Enmebaragesi of Kish , two other kings named in the stories, has lent credibility to the historical existence of Gilgamesh. The earliest Sumerian Gilgamesh poems date from as early as the Third dynasty of Ur (2100–2000 BCE). One of these poems mentions Gilgamesh’s journey to meet the flood hero, as well as a short version of the flood story. The earliest Akkadian versions of the

Matilda of Scotland

topic

Matilda of Scotland (c. 1080 – 1 May 1118), originally christened Edith , was Queen of England as the first wife of King Henry I . Matilda was the daughter of the English princess Saint Margaret and the Scottish king Malcolm III . At the age of about six Matilda was sent with her sister to be educated in a convent in southern England, where her aunt Cristina was abbess. It is not clear if she spent much time in Scotland thereafter. In 1093, when she was about 13, she was engaged to an English nobleman when her father and brother Edward were killed in a minor raid into England, and her mother died soon after; her fiance then abandoned the proposed marriage. In Scotland a messy succession conflict followed between Matilda's uncle Donald III , her half-brother Duncan II and brother Edgar until 1097. Matilda's whereabouts during this no doubt difficult period are uncertain. But after the suspicious death of William II of England in 1100 and accession of his brother Henry I, Matilda's prospects improved. Henry mo

Gilgamesh ( ; 𒄑𒂆𒈦 , Gilgameš, originally Bilgamesh 𒄑𒉈𒂵𒈩 ) is the main character in the Epic of Gilgamesh , an Akkadian poem that is considered the first great work of literature, and in earlier Sumerian poems. In the epic, Gilgamesh is a demigod of superhuman strength who builds the city walls of Uruk to defend his people and after the death of his friend Enkidu travels to meet the sage Utnapishtim , who survived the Great Flood . His name means something to the effect of "The Ancestor is a Young-man" (J.L. Hayes "A Manual of Sumerian Grammar and Texts"), from Bil.ga = Ancestor, Elder (J.Halloran Sum.Lexicon p. 33) and Mes/Mesh3 = Young-Man (Halloran Sum.Lexicon p. 174). (See also The Electronic Pennsylvania Sumerian Dictionary) Gilgamesh is generally seen by scholars as a historical figure, since inscriptions have been found which confirm the existence of other figures associated with him in the epic. If Gilgamesh existed, he probably was a king who reigned sometime between 2800 and 2500 BC. The Sumerian K

Ashuri alphabet

topic

The Ashuri script ( Hebrew : כְּתָב אַשּׁוּרִי ‎, ktav ashurí ), translated either as "Assyrian alphabet" or "beautiful alphabet," is a traditional calligraphic form of the alphabet shared between Hebrew and Aramaic . Over some centuries, certain ornaments were simplified or removed for use outside of traditional religious calligraphy, to become the modern print form of the Hebrew alphabet, which it most closely resembles. Mention of the Ashuri script first appears in rabbinic writings of the Mishnaic and Talmudic periods, referring to the formal script used in certain Jewish ceremonial items, such as sifrei Torah , tefillin , and mezuzot . Also sometimes called the "square" script, the term is used to distinguish the Ashuri script from the Paleo-Hebrew alphabet .

The Croatian War of Independence was fought from 1991 to 1995 between Croat forces loyal to the government of Croatia—which had declared independence from the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (SFRY)—and the Serb-controlled Yugoslav People's Army (JNA) and local Serb forces, with the JNA ending its combat operations in Croatia by 1992. In Croatia, the war is primarily referred to as the "Homeland War" (Domovinski rat) and also as the "Greater-Serbian Aggression" (Velikosrpska agresija).[25] [26] In Serbian sources, "War in Croatia" (Rat u Hrvatskoj) and "War in Krajina" (Rat u Krajini) are used.[27] A majority of Croats wanted Croatia to leave Yugoslavia and become a sovereign country, while many ethnic Serbs living in Croatia, supported by Serbia,[28] [29] opposed the secession and wanted Serb-claimed lands to be in a common state with Serbia.
