While blue is one of the most popular colors, it is one of the least appetizing. Food researchers say that when
humans searched for food, they learned to avoid toxic or spoiled objects, which were often blue, black or
purple. When food dyed blue is served to study subjects, they lose appetite.
Tesla and Edison
Tesla’s theoretical work formed the basis of modern alternating current electric power systems. Thomas Edison
promised him almost one million dollars in today’s money to undertake motor and generator improvement.
However, when Tesla, the ethical Serb, asked about the money, Edison’s reported reply was”Tesla, you don’t
understand our American humor.” The pair became archrivals.
The core of the problem was the immense disparity between the country’s productive capacity and the ability
of people to consume. Great innovations in productive techniques during and after the war raised the output of
industry beyond the purchasing capacity of U.S. farmers and wage earners.
Every morning, no matter how late he had been up, my father rose at five-thirty, went to his study, wrote for a
couple of hours, made us all breakfast, read the paper with my mother, and then went back to work for the rest
of the morning. Many years passed before I realized that he did this for a living.
Pluto lost its official status when the International Astronomical Union downsized the solar system from nine to
eight planets. Although there had been a passionate debate at the IAU General Assembly Meeting in Prague
about the definition of a planet, and whether Pluto met the specifications, the audience greeted the decision to
exclude it with applause.
At the beginning of each fiscal year, funds are allocated to each State account in accordance with the
University’s financial plan. Funds are allocated to each account by an object of expenditure. Account managers
are responsible for ensuring that adequate funds are available in the appropriate object before initiating
transactions to use the funds.
Lincoln’s apparently radical change of mind about his war power to emancipate slaves was caused by the
escalating scope of the war, which convinced him that any measure to weaken the Confederacy and strengthen
the Union war effort was justifiable as a military necessity.
A young man from a small provincial town — a man without independent wealth, without powerful family
connections and without a university education — moves to London in the late 1580s and, in a remarkably
short time, becomes the greatest playwright not of his age alone but of all time. How was this achievement of
magnitude made? How does Shakespeare become Shakespeare?
Akimbo, this must be one of the odder-looking words in the language and puzzles us in part because it
doesn’t seem to have any relatives, What’s more, it is now virtually a fossil word, until recently almost
invariably found in arms akimbo, a posture in which a person stands with hands-on-hips and elbows sharply
bent outward, one signaling impatience or hostility.
Yellow is considered as the most optimistic color, yet surprisingly, people lose their tempers most often in
yellow rooms and babies will cry more. The reason may be that yellow is the hardest color for eyes to take in, so
it can be overpowering if overused.
The elephant is the largest living land mammal. During evolution, its skeleton has greatly altered from the usual
mammal, designed for two main reasons. One is to cope with the great weight of huge grinding cheek teeth
and elongated tusk, making the skull particularly massive. The other is to support the enormous bulk of such a
How do we imagine the unimaginable? If we’re asked to think of an object – say, a yellow tulip – a picture
immediately forms in our mind’s eye. But what if we try to imagine a concept such as the square root of
a negative number?
Few things in the world produce such amazement as one’s first glimpse of the Grand Canyon; it took around
more than 2 billion years to create this vast wonder in some places. 17 miles wide, largely through the
relentless force of the Colorado River, which runs 277 miles along its length and a mile beneath its towering
The brain is divided into two hemispheres, called the left and the right hemispheres. Each hemisphere provides
a different set of functions, behaviors, and controls. The right hemisphere is often called the creative side of the
brain, while the left hemisphere is the logical or analytic side of the brain. The right hemisphere controls the left
side of the body, and the left hemisphere controls the right side.
Fast Radio Burst
First discovered in 2007, “fast radio burst” continue to defy explanation. These cosmic chirps last a
thousandth of a second. The characteristics of the radio pulses suggested that they came from galaxies billions
of light-years away. However, new works point to a much closer origin-flaring star within our own galaxy.
Incentive Pay Schemes
If bonuses or incentive pay schemes work so well for chief executives and bankers, why does everyone not get
them? After all, many jobs involve making important decisions or taking risks is there anything about the corporate
decision and financial risks that makes these categories of work special in terms of how they need to be
incentivized and rewarded?
How quickly is the world’s population growing? In the United States and other developed countries, the
current growth rate is very low. In most developing countries, the human population is growing at a rate of 3
people per second. Because of this bustling growth rate, the human population is well on its way to reaching 9
billion within a lifetime.
Augustus was given the powers of an absolute monarch, but he presented himself as the preserver of
republican traditions. He treated the Senate, or state council, with great respect, and was made Consul year
after year. He successfully reduced the political power of the army by retiring many soldiers but giving them
land or money to keep their loyalty.
As to the Industrial Revolution, one cannot dispute today the fact that it has succeeded in inaugurating in a
number of countries a level of mass prosperity which was undreamt of in the days preceding the Industrial
Revolution. But, on the immediate impact of the Industrial Revolution, there were substantial divergences among
Diversity of Language
The diversity of human language may be compared to the diversity of the natural world. Just as the demise of
plant species reduces genetic diversity, and deprives humanity or potential medical and biological resources. So
the extinction of language takes with it a wealth of culture, art, and knowledge.
The uniquely scented flavor of vanilla is second only to chocolate in popularity on the world’s palate. It’s also
the second most expensive spice after saffron. But highly labor-intensive cultivation methods and the plant’s
temperamental life cycle and propagation mean production on a global scale is struggling to keep up with the
increasing demand for the product.
In classes, your teachers will talk about topics that you are studying. The information that they provide will be
important to know when you take tests. You must be able to take good written notes from what your teacher
It isn’t rare for private equity houses to hire grads fresh out of business schools, but nine times out of ten, the
students who nab these jobs are the ones who had private equity experience before even starting their MBA
No ordinary book
This book is no ordinary book and should not be read through from beginning to end. It contains many
different adventures, and the path you take will depend on the choices you make along the way. The success or
failure of your mission will hinge on the decisions you make, so think carefully before choosing.
Exhilarating, exhausting and intense. There are just some of the words used to describe doing an MBA.
Everyone’s experience of doing an MBA is, of course, different through denying that it’s hard and a demanding
work whichever course you do. MBA is one of the fastest-growing areas of studying in the UK so that must be a
sustainable benefit against form in one pain.
Legal writing is usually less discursive than writing in other humanities subjects, and precision is more
important than variety. Sentence structure should not be too complex; it is usually unnecessary to make
extensive use of adjectives or adverbs, and consistency of terms is often required.
The semiconductor industry has been able to improve the performance of electronic systems for more than
four decades by making ever-smaller devices. However, this approach will soon encounter both scientific and
technical limits, which is why the industry is exploring a number of alternative device technologies.
Two sisters were at a dinner party when the conversation turned to upbring. The elder sister started to say
that her parents had been very strict and that she had been rather frightened of them. Her sister, younger by
two years, interrupted in amazement. “What are you talking about?” she said, “Our parents were very
Weakness in electronics, auto and gas station sales dragged down overall retail sales last month, but excluding
those three categories, retailers enjoyed healthy increases across the board, according to government figures
released Wednesday. Moreover, December sales numbers were also revised higher.
Japanese tea ceremony
The Japanese tea ceremony is a ritual tour influenced by Buddhism in which green tea is prepared and served
to a small group of guests in a peaceful setting. The ceremony can take as long as four hours and there are
many traditional gestures that both the server and the guest must perform.
Long isolated from Western Europe, Russia grew up without participating in the development like the
The reformation that many Europeans taking pride in their unique culture, find dubious value. Russia is, as a result,
the most unusual member of the European family, if indeed it is European at all. The question is still open to
debate, particularly among Russians themselves.
For any marketing course that requires the development of a marketing plan, such as Marketing Management,
Marketing Strategy and Principles of Marketing. This is the only planning handbook that guides students
through a step by step creations of a customized marketing plan while offering commercial software to aid in the
The beginning of the twenty-first century will be remembered, not for military conflicts or political events, but for a whole new age of globalization – a ‘flattening’ of the world. The explosion of advanced technologies
now means that suddenly knowledge pools and resources have connected all over the planet, leveling the
playing field as never before.
Orientalists, like many other nineteenth-century thinkers, conceive of humanity either in large collective terms
or in abstract generalities. Orientalists are neither interested in nor capable of discussing individuals; instead,
artificial entities predominate. It was beneath very wide labels that every possible variety of human plurality
was herded, reducing it in the process of collective abstractions.
Hundreds of millions of people buy fast food every day without giving it much thought, unaware of the subtle
and not so subtle ramifications of their purchases. They just grasp a hamburger and unwrap it and tossed the
wrap into the bin. The whole experience is transitory and soon forgotten.
Australians speak English of course. But for many tourists and even some locals, Australian English has only
tenuous links with the mother tongue. Our speech is peppered with words and phrases whose arcane meanings
are understood only by the native speaker. It is these colorful colloquialisms that Australian slang is yet to truly
The provision of accurate and authoritative statistical information strengthens modern societies. It provides a
the basis for decisions to be made on such things as where to open schools and hospitals, how much money to
spend on welfare payments and even which football players to replace at half-time.
First-year university students have designed and built a groundbreaking electric car that recharges itself. Fifty
students from the University of Sydney‘s Faculty of Engineering spent five months working together bits of
plywood, foam, and fiberglass to build the concept car. They developed the specifications and hand built the
car. It’s a pretty radical design: a four-wheel drive with a motor in each wheel.
The Preparation of Abstract
The preparation of abstracts is an intellectual effort, requiring a general familiarity with the subject. To bring out
the salient points of an author’s argument calls for skill and experience. Consequently, a considerable amount
of qualified manpower that could be used to advantage in other ways must be diverted to the task of
facilitating access to information.
Shrimp farmers used to hold animals in nursery ponds for 30 to 60 days; now they try to move them into grow out ponds in less than 30 days. This reduces stress on the animals and dramatically increases survival in the
grow-out ponds. Many farms that abandoned nursery ponds have gone back to them, and the results have
been surprisingly positive. They’re using the old, uncovered, earthen, nursery ponds.
Environmental Policy Course
Along with customary classes on subjects such as finance, accounting, and marketing, today’s MBA students
are enrolling in courses for environmental policy and stewardship. Indeed, more than half of business schools
require a course in environmental sustainability or corporate social responsibility, according to a survey of 91
US business schools, published in October 2005.
Public Demand for Education
Public demand for education has remained strong, reflecting the importance of education as a means of social
progress. Aware of the added value of education to the world of work, the government continues to innovate
and update the education system to produce a qualified and competent workforce.
Business School Admissions
Business school admissions officers said the new drive to attract younger students was in part the result of a
realization that they had inadvertently limited their applicant pool by requiring several years’ work experience.
Talented students who might otherwise have gone to business school instead opted for a law or policy degree
because they were intimidated by the expectation of work experience.
Online Shopping Environments
A unique characteristic of online shopping environments is that they allow vendors to create retail interfaces
with highly interactive features. One desirable form of interactivity from a consumer perspective is the
implementation of sophisticated tools to assist shoppers in their purchase decisions by customizing the
electronic shopping environment to their individual preferences.
A Hazard Assessment should be performed for work involving distillations of organic liquids and should
thoroughly address issues relating to residual water and possible decomposition of the solvent in question, as
well as the physical placement of the distillation apparatus and heating equipment to be employed.
A national study into fraud by bookkeepers employed at small and medium-sized businesses has uncovered 65
instances of theft in more than five years, with more than $31 million stolen. Of the cases identified by the
research, 56 involved women and nine instances involved men. However, male bookkeepers who defrauded
their employers stole three times, on average, the amount that women stole.
Traditional divisions of domestic work are understood to persist because of the strong association of the home
with femininity and paid work with masculinity – to challenge who does what in the home is arguably
equivalent to challenging what it is to be a woman or a man.
The Only Family
Imagine living all your life as the only family on your street. Then, one morning, you open the front door and
discover houses all around you. You see neighbors tending their gardens and children walking to school. Where
did all the people come from? What if the answer turned out to be that they had always been there—you just
hadn’t seen them?
To work effectively with the heterogeneous student populations found in our schools, educators have the
responsibility of acknowledging the cultural backgrounds of their students and the cultural setting in which the
school is located to develop effective instructional strategies.
The Most Measurable Benefit
Perhaps the most measurable benefit of the program has been the opportunity to meet in small groups.
Something that is difficult to arrange such a desperate organization. Many officers would have to work
together for thirty years but would not know other’s strengths and weaknesses.
Teenage girls are continuing to outperform boys in English while the gender gap in achievements in math and
science has almost disappeared. The figures show that last year 80% of 14-year-old girls reached at least the
expected level 5 in English, compared with 65% of boys. But in math, the girls are just 1% ahead of boys, while
in science the difference is 2%.
Before the discovery of Australia, people in the old world were convinced that all swans were white, an
unassailable belief as it seemed completely confirmed by empirical evidence. The sighting of the first black
swan might have been an interesting surprise for a few ornithologists, but that is not where the significance of
the story lies.
Important Values of Literature
Certainly, one of the important values of literature is that it nourishes our emotional lives. An effective literary
work may seem to speak directly to us especially if we are ripe for it. The inner life that good writers reveal in
their characters often gives us glimpses of some portion of ourselves. We can be moved to laugh, cry, tremble,
dream, ponder, shriek, or rage with a character by simply turning the page instead of turning our lives upside
Internal Combustion Engine
An internal combustion engine enables the driver to decide which source of power is appropriate for the travel
requirements of a given journey. Major US auto manufacturers are now developing feasible hybrid electric
vehicles, and some are exploring fuel-cell technology for their electric cars.
You used to think that being green was a luxury for your company, but climate change has made you realise
that you can no longer ignore it. The buzz is about becoming carbon-neutral, but where do you start? Consider
your drivers. Do you want to become carbon-neutral for marketing reasons, for financial reasons, or just to save
The Maximum Yield of Plants
The maximum yield of plants, determined by their genetic potential, is seldom achieved because factors such as
insufficient water or nutrients, adverse climate condition, plant diseases, and insect damage will limit growth at
some stage. Plants subjected to these biotic and abiotic constraints are said to be stressed.
A World Without Light
Have you ever pictured a world without light? Just think how much we rely on man-made light sources in our
life. Without engineers, we wouldn’t be able to live the way we do. No streetlights, no TV, no computer
displays, no house lights. engineers design and build all these things.
Since its inception, the UN system has been working to ensure adequate food for all through sustainable
agriculture. The majority of the world’s poorest people live in rural areas of developing countries. They
depend on agriculture and related activities for their livelihoods. This makes them particularly vulnerable to
man-made and natural influences that reduce agricultural production.
When we recycle, used materials are converted into new products, reducing the need to consume natural
resources. If used materials are not recycled, new products are made by extracting fresh, raw material from the
Earth, through mining and forestry. Recycling helps conserve important raw materials and protects natural
habitats for the future.
The language appeared from nowhere
It seems that language appeared from nowhere since no other species has anything resembling human
language. However, other animals do possess basic systems for perceiving and producing sounds that enable
them to communicate. These systems may have been in place before the appearance of language.
Investigators also compared those microbes with those living in 52 other soil samples taken from all around the
planet. The park had organisms that also exist in deserts, frozen tundra, forests, rainforests, and prairies.
Antarctica was the only area that had microbes that did not overlap with those found in Central Park. Only a
small percentage of the park’s microbes were found to be already listed in databases.
Thus, a country might possess a sizeable rural population, but have an economic system in which the interests
of the voters were predominantly related to their incomes, not to their occupations or location; and in such a
country the political system would be unlikely to include an important agrarian party.
The emergence of information technology has created new products, processes and distribution systems. New
products include the computer, the Internet and digital TV; new processes include Internet banking, automated
inventory control and automated teller machines; and new distribution systems include cable and satellite TV.
The purpose of the informative speech is to provide interesting, useful, and unique information to your
audience. By dedicating yourself to the goals of providing information and appealing to your audience, you can
take a positive step toward succeeding in your efforts as an informative speaker.
Method of learning
There is no single method of learning that guarantees success. How we learn that depends on many different
factors. What works best for you will not necessarily be the same as the approach used for the other students
even if they study the same course. We are all unique as learners, although some patterns emerge from any
groups of students.
Electronic discourse is one form of interactive electronic communication. In this study, we reserve the term for
the two-directional texts in which one person using a keyboard write language that appears on the sender’s
monitor and is transmitted to the monitor of a recipient, who responds by a keyboard.\
The best comparison is likely a magnetar, a young neutron star with a powerful magnetic field, the researchers
said. Magnetars also produce bright X-ray flares. While magnetars are thought to be young stars, the two
flaring objects in this study reside near elliptical galaxies, which contain older stars. So the objects are likely too
old to be magnetars, the researchers said.
The Training of an Actor
The training of an actor is an intensive process that requires curiosity, courage, and commitment. You will
learn how to prepare for rehearsal, how to rehearse and how to use independent and proactive processes that
inform you to do the best work possible for both stage and screen.
Modern Food Production
Globalization has affected what we eat in ways we are only beginning to understand. Modern food production
is no longer related to our biological needs but is in direct conflict with them. The relationship between diet
and our fertility, our cancer, heart disease, and mental illness is becoming clear. Yet much of our food is
The department determines whether or not the candidate has passed the examination. In cases where an
appearance for the final public oral examination would constitute a substantial financial hardship for the
candidate, the director of graduate studies, may recommend to the dean of the Graduate School for a virtual,
video-conferenced examination of the candidate.
Companies will want to be known not just for the financial results they generate, but equally, for the imprint,
they leave on society as a whole. First, ensuring that their products contribute positively. Second, operating in a
way that approaches a “net-neutral” impact on the natural environment. And third, cherishing their people.
You must practice all prediction file read aloud questions. Read aloud questions are one of the easiest to score in the PTE speaking section. The probability of repeated questions is very moderate. You must practice all questions to improve fluency and diction.
