What Will Happen to the Cop Who Killed George Floyd?

He'll probably get raped, commit suicide or get murdered too in prison. I hope not because he deserves to serve longer than that. He is charged with second-degree murder, second-degree manslaughter and third-degree murder.

Few police officers are ever convicted of murder in the United States. Under Minnesota law, prosecutors must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Chauvin intended to kill Floyd. These can be very difficult cases to try, but the publicly available evidence appears to be enough to sustain the second-degree charge. Chauvin's conduct is more direct and will be more palpable to a jury.To prove third-degree murder, prosecutors have to show that Chauvin carried out intentionally committed some felony, an assault that a death resulted. The defense will likely retain medical or other experts to testify that other health conditions, or possibly even bad drug interactions, caused Floyd's death. Certainly, the state will use experts and other evidence to argue that kneeling on the back of Floyd's neck was a substantial factor in his death.Second-degree murder and aiding and abetting that crime carry a maximum penalty of 40 years, while the maximum is 25 years for a third-degree murder conviction. A manslaughter conviction carries a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison, as does aiding and abetting manslaughter.

Why is China claiming territory in the South China Sea?

China is claiming the islands in the South China Sea because of its historical claims. China claims to have discovered the Spratly Islands during the reign of Han Dynasty in 2 BC. The islands were claimed to have been marked also by the Qing Dynasty of China from 13th to 19th century.

China also claims South China Sea by its own basis, the Chinas nine-dashed line. This line claims almost whole South China Sea and the West Philippine Sea and the famous Spratly Islands and Scarborough Shoal. Nine-dashed line was originally an eleven-dashed line to claim South China Sea first shown in a map published by the Republic of China in 1947. Although claimed by Taiwan (Rep. of China), still the China (Peoples Rep. of China) claims the sea and its islands, reefs and shoals.China claims the whole South China Sea may not just because of the islands there but because of the massive natural gas and oil deposit. According to a US Geological Survey (USGS) Report, there is a 95% chance that the sea holds at least 750 million barrels of oil, a median chance of approximately 2 billion barrels and a 5% probability of over 5 billion barrels. This is a very massive oil field that could drive a countrys economy and support the major demands on oil and natural gas. It could not be a wonder that China aggressively claims the sea.


What famous actors have poor acting skills?

Thanks for the A2A!This is a subjective question, but I would have to say that Keanu Reeves is widely considered to be bad at acting, and I must agree! Hes one of many I could name, but he tops the list for me. I would also even say Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter), Sylvester Stallone, David Carusoe, Nicholas Cage, Matthew McConaghey, Tom Cruise, Hayden Christensen, Vin Diesel and yes, sadly I must include the late Paul Walker.As for women, Scarlett Johansen and Kristen Stewart make for two of the worst actresses in the business today (again, my opinions as a formally trained actor myself who continues to study and train under other professionals). Angelina Jolie is up there also on my list of top worsts, and I am not usually moved by anything that Michelle Pfeiffer does because I find her performances to be very one-dimensional, for the most part.One could argue that just about every famous reality TV star who has gotten into big budget Hollywood movies make for the worst actors since all they have to do is be themselves (not much actual acting involved, just heaps of narcisstic manipulation). Most singers who try to become movie stars as well are definitely among the worst offenders.


Who was the most corrupt politician of the 20th Century?

Hermann Goering is certainly high in the running. In addition to his role as the leader of the German Air Force, he was also the main economic minister of Germany during most of the Nazi reign. He took advantage of his position to loot thousands of Jews and other "enemies of the state" of their art collections to grace his huge estate at Carinhall, his huge estate (shown below).

He also participated in the Volkswagen and Winterhilfe schemes. In the first, workers were encouraged to enroll to buy a Volkswagen, which had been designed but wasn't yet in production, and contributed monthly payments. Instead, once the war began, the money went into the Nazi Party's treasury and was divided between local Gauleiters and Nazi bigwigs, including Goering and Goebbels. The Winterhilfe scheme encouraged Germans to contribute to buy extra warm clothing and food for the German soldiers at the front. Once again, the money went to the Nazi party and was divided among its leaders. At the end of the war, warehouses were found full of winter clothes contributed by the German people that had never even been inventoried. Although a few items made their way to the front, most apparently were not.So Goering cheated workers of their car payments, and took money to help soldiers at the front for his own use, as well as extorting or looting Jews and other "undesirables."


How hard is it to have a genius as a client if you were a psychologist?

I read through all of the answers before posting. It's easy to pick out the more enlightened on both sides of the room. For some of the responders I would just share what my old high school math teacher used to say, A wink is as good as a nod to a blind horse.

I don't believe average therapists who carry their training like a missionary totes their Bible will ever do when dealing with a true genius. They would have to have some level of giftedness within them to adapt to the exchange that will present in such cases. The depth and rapidity with which a genius thinks requires that they keep up. They have to first understand. Then process. Then respond.

Slow the genius down, you say? Try it.

Many of the issues that would send some highly gifted people to a psychologist are beyond their ability to resolve on their owneven with their gifts. If they detect a deficient intellect in the therapistit'll probably be the last visit. The internal dialog might sound like, This fool can't help me.

On the other hand, intellect respects intellect, especially if the emotional intelligence has been developed. If they detect a higher order of thinking, it relaxes their internal skeptic and arouses their intellectual curiosity and interest.Your mileage may vary


What is it like to be present during an execution?

I have been witness to two judicial hangings: One in the USA, one in another country.Lots of waiting. Solemn. Quiet. No idle chatting.Then: Quick, efficient, by-the-book. Well-practiced.A lot less dramatic and a LOT less gory than the movies.I have never witnessed an actual lethal injection myself, but I strongly suspect User is correct. Hearing of people being strapped to a gurney for 45 minutes or more really makes me wonder. Moreover, when a paralytic agent is used in human surgery, many safeguards are also in place--none of which have been used in any execution protocol I have ever read, and I have read a lot of them.I do not support capital punishment as a practical matter, but a "by-the-book" hanging using a variable table of drops, pre-stretched rope, etc.

, seems to *much* more humane and much more consistent than any other method in use in the West, lethal injection included. (I say "the West" only because I am not as familiar with or qualified to speak on certain methods used exclusively in the East, such as a bullet to the back of the head.)A double-noose, as was employed in the last years before abolition in South Africa, all but eliminates the chance of error.

Lots of movies get it wrong, or are overly prurient or ghoulish. If you want to see a film that depicts such executions accurately and respectfully, I would suggest "Pierrepoint."


Why does everyone hate Jimmy Carter?

Hes a sanctimonious anti-Semite who inherited his wealth from major slave owning ancestors. He likes Kim Jong Un, Hamas, the Muslim Brotherhood and other Muslim terrorists and world dictators while calling America the worst country in the world. His 4 years as president put the American economy in the toilet and lost respect throughout the world, as Carter let Iranians parade Americans blind folded nightly on international television. But he teaches Sunday School and does Habitat for Humanity. He won a Nobel Prize, maybe for being the wimp he really is. Yet, even left wing Noam Chomsky considers Carter a genocidal president. Left, right, all have reasons for disliking Carter. Even Obama didnt like him, and never consulted him. Carter complained about that. Carter exaggerated his position as nuclear scientist to get elected, and the news media never called him on it. Yet Hillarys running mate, for vice president, preferred to vote the communist party ticket rather than vote for Carter. No one really liked Carter. He was an embarrassment to all, as unemployment & inflation & interest rates rose, leaving Americans wonder if he had a clue about anything. When heating costs rose, Carter appeared on TV wearing a sweater, telling Americans to use less heat. Hes an all around loser, but give him credit for building homes for the low income. No one is totally evil or incompetent. Carter came closest though, among our presidents


Is it biblical for a woman to be a pastor?

It seems that the Bible is explicitly clear on this:I do not permit a woman to teach or to exercise authority over a man. - 1 Timothy 2:121 Corinthians 14 is another good example. It would be rather hard to be a pastor biblically speaking with these verses in mind. I had a pastor in college who would say that after the fall (of Adam and Eve) God left women more spiritually in tune with himself and men in charge. This is one of those issues that we don't fully understand, but we choose to trust Gods word above our own wisdom. I say we as an evangelical. Many other branches of Christianity change their doctrine as it is culturally convenient.

And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers, so that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes. - Ephesians 4:11,14Here is a great panel discussion of how women may be actively involved in church life while adhering to biblical principles: blubrry.

Application of White LED Driver Cat3636 in Portable Equipment
At present, various consumer electronic products are constantly given new functional features, and with the improvement of complexity, the corresponding power consumption also increases. How to avoid the excessive growth of power consumption by improving the design has become an important topic in front of hardware design engineers. For example, for products such as mobile phones, PMP and GPS, the power consumed by the LCD backlight accounts for a very large proportion of the power consumption of the whole machine, and the LCD screen has a further increasing trend, which will further increase the corresponding power. Therefore, how to reduce the power consumption of LCD backlight has become one of the primary problems to reduce the system power consumption.At present, the mainstream architectures of LCD screens on the market are CSTN and TFT, both of which need a certain brightness backlight to achieve visible images. The brightness demand of the backlight is basically proportional to the size of the LCD screen, but also related to the surrounding environment and the subjective feeling of users. The more popular backlight scheme in China is that the LCD screen below 2.8 inches adopts 2 4 white LEDs, and the LCD screen of 2.8 4.3 inches adopts more than 5 white LEDs. Considering the service life, index and price of LED, the current of single LED is generally controlled at 15 25mA.Most portable devices are powered by lithium batteries. The discharge range of lithium battery is about 3.2 4.2V, while the forward voltage required for white LED in normal operation is between 3.2 3.8V (if = 20mA @ VF = 3.5V). When the load of the system increases suddenly, it will cause battery voltage fluctuation. Therefore, driving white led directly with lithium battery will cause abnormal phenomena such as dark screen or flashing screen.The solution to this problem is to insert a primary boost driving circuit between the lithium battery and the white LED. At present, there are two commonly used architectures: one is inductor boost type, and the other is charge pump boost type.For the driving scheme of 5 6 white LEDs in portable devices, although the inductive boost architecture has more high efficiency advantages than the traditional charge pump boost architecture, noise and the size of peripheral devices are still difficult to overcome in this scheme. In order to drive 5 6 white LEDs arranged in series, the inductive boost chip needs to output at least 16 (3.2V / LED & tips; 5) 21V (3.5V / LED & tips; 6) driving voltage, and its inherent switching circuit ripple is a large noise source for other small signal circuits. If the PWM signal is used to control the enable end of the boost chip for dimming operation, not only the PWM signal itself, but also the fluctuating driving voltage will have an adverse impact on other circuits.Cat3636 is a charging pump capacitor boost white LED driver, which is especially suitable for LCD screen with 5 6 white LEDs as backlight. Similar to the popular capacitor boost architecture, it does not need inductors, only a few small capacity ceramic capacitors are needed in the periphery, and the small-size 3mm & tides are also used in itself; 3mm square tqfn-16 package. Different from the popular capacitor boost architecture, it adopts the patented Quad modetm charge pump technology of catalyst semiconductor company, which can effectively improve the conversion efficiency of backlight LED driver and reduce the power consumption of backlight circuit.At present, most popular charge pump LED drivers provide only three working modes according to the ratio of output voltage to input voltage: 1 times, 1.5 times and 2 times. Quad modetm architecture adds a fourth working mode - 1.33 times. The 1.33x working mode makes the output boost voltage as small as possible, which greatly reduces the useless power consumption and subsequent heat loss of the device. At the same time, the 1.33 times working mode also effectively reduces the input switching current at the battery end, which not only effectively prolongs the working time of the battery, but also minimizes the input noise of the whole system. In particular, in order to realize the 1.33 times working mode, the cat3636 still adopts the peripheral configuration of the popular charge pump LED driver, and only two flying capacitors are used to realize voltage conversion, which makes the chip do not have to increase the number of pins due to the increase of working mode, so that the device can be packaged with small but still cheap TQFN, which is conducive to actual production and procurement.Quad mode charge pump principleCat3636 adopts quad-modetm charge pump boost architecture. Its principle is different from inductive boost circuit. The output voltage and input voltage have a discrete multiple relationship. The charge pump has four working modes: 1 times, 1.33 times, 1.5 times and 2 times.The double mode working principle of quad-modetm charge pump is shown in Figure 1. In the first phase, input the power supply VIN to charge the two external capacitors C1 and C2. At this time, the two external capacitors are connected in parallel, and the a terminal of the capacitor is connected to VIN and the B terminal is grounded. The voltage between the two poles of the capacitor is the input voltage, that is, Vc1 = vc2 = Vin. In phase 2, terminal B of external capacitor is connected to VIN and terminal A is connected to Vout, which is Vout = VIN VC = 2vin. Due to the repeated conversion of the first phase and the second phase, the charge is continuously "pumped" to the output.Fig. 1 principle of 2x Mode BoostSimilar to 2x mode, the working principle of 1.5x mode is shown in Figure 2. In the first phase, C1 and C2 are connected in series between VIN and ground, and the input voltage Vin charges capacitors C1 and C2, Vc1 = vc2 = 1 / 2vin. In the second phase, the two external capacitors are disconnected from the ground and connected to Vout. At this time, Vout = VIN VC = VIN 1 / 2vin = 3 / 2vin. Similarly, this process is repeatedly converted to achieve 1.5 times the boost.Figure 2 1.5x Mode Boost principleDifferent from the traditional 1.33x mode, quad-modetm charge pump can realize 1.33x mode by using only two external capacitors. In the first phase, VIN charges the external capacitors C1 and C2, and C1 and C2 are connected in series. In the second phase, the capacitors C1 and C2 are disconnected from the input power supply VIN, and C1 is inversely connected to VIN and Vout. At this time, C2 remains floating. In the third phase, C1 and C2 are connected to VIN in series, and the positive pole of C2 is connected to Vout. The steady-state output voltage can be solved according to Kirchhoff's voltage law:Phase 1: VIN = Vc1 vc2 (1)Phase 2: Vout = VIN Vc1 (2)Phase 3: Vout = vin-vc1 vc2 (3)Substitute equation (2) into equation (3) to obtain:VIN VC1=VIN-VC1VC2 (4)VC2=2VC1 (5)Replace equation (5) with equation (1):VC1=1/3VIN (6)Then substitute equation (6) into equation (2) to obtain:VOUT=4/3VIN。Figure 3 catalyst's innovative 1.33x mode architectureIf the input voltage Vin is greater than the forward voltage drop VF of the LED, the LED does not need to be boosted, and the quad-modetm charge pump operates in the double mode.According to the principle of energy conservation, the input power Pi of cat3636 is equal to the power pl consumed by the external led plus the power PE consumed by itself, that is, pi = PL PE. The power consumed by cat3636 itself mainly includes charge pump voltage conversion power consumption PC, passive power consumption PS of internal constant current source, power pf consumed by internal logic function module, and heat loss Pt, i.e. PE = PC PS pf Pt. As shown in Figure 4.Figure 4 power consumption distributionConversion efficiency of cat3636 η= PL/PI=PL/(PCPLPSPFPT)。 Since PF and Pt values are relatively small, η ≈PL/(PCPLPS)。 Under the condition of constant current operation, the power consumption pl of LED is approximately constant. Therefore, in the same boost mode, with the decrease of input voltage, the output voltage decreases, and the voltage acting on the internal constant current source also decreases. Therefore, the power consumption PS of constant current source also decreases, and the conversion efficiency of cat3636 η rise; Under the same input voltage, the higher the mode and the higher the output voltage, the greater the power consumed by the internal constant current source and the lower the conversion efficiency. This is why the LED Driver with 1.33x mode has higher comprehensive conversion efficiency than the driver with only 1.5x or 2x mode. Fig. 5 is a diagram of the conversion efficiency of the cat3636 operating within the lithium discharge range.Figure 5 cat3636 conversion efficiency
Design of LED Display Screen to Display Single Character
With the development of society and the needs of the information age for the rapid release of all kinds of information, many government departments, enterprises and institutions have widely adopted LED electronic display products in order to improve their own image and standardized information management. This kind of multimedia display system is used to display text, graphics, images, animation Stock market and other information, as well as television, video, DVD and other signals, are effective tools and good windows for traffic command and guidance, military operations, power departments and public places to carry out corporate image publicity, information release and spiritual civilization construction.Using the field programmable logic device (FPGA) as the controller, selecting the appropriate device, using the rich I / O port, internal logic and wiring resources of the device, and adopting the top-down modular design method, the whole display system can be designed conveniently.Electronic design automation (EDA) technology is a digital electronic system design based on programmable device (PLD). It is a new design method for system chip integration. It is also rapidly replacing the traditional design method based on PCB. With the support of EDA tool software MAX plus Ⅱ, this design has passed the compilation, adaptation and software simulation verification. Finally, the hardware experiment loaded into the real experimental system proves its correctness.1 system structure and principleCombined with the EDA experimental box produced by Shanghai hanghong high tech company, the 16 character font to be displayed has been stored in 8000h 807fh of EPROM, and a single 8 × 8LED dot matrix (wtd3088) displays characters, and the display control is realized by field programmable gate array (FPGA) epf10k20tc144-4. The system principle is that FPGA first generates the dot matrix font address, reads out the data from the memory, stores it in the 16 bit register, and then outputs it to the column of the LED dot matrix. At the same time, the dot array is scanned circularly to dynamically display the data. When the column that needs to display the data font can be coordinated with the selected column, the characters can be displayed correctly.2 FPGA design and principleFor at 8 × To display characters on the 8LED dot matrix, first express the characters as 8 × 8 pixel points (AD0 Ad7) are character pixel information extracted and arranged in sequence by column, all of which have 8-bit word length. Then, the pixel information is extracted from the multi characters in turn and stored in EPROM in order to get a data sequence to be displayed. Further, by controlling the release process of the data sequence through the addressing method, it can be realized in 8 × The purpose of scrolling multiple character information on 8LED LED dot matrix. Page controls the scrolling speed of character display, and its value range shall be 0 n. col determines the scanning speed of column switch of LED dot matrix, and its value range shall be 0 7. The address pointer that can locate the data to be displayed in the display data sequence at a certain time can be calculated by the following formula: addr = page Col. it should be noted that the scanning speed shall be much greater than the scrolling speed, The scanning clock used in this design is 1kHz, and the rolling speed of characters is 1s / piece. Adjust the scrolling speed of character information; Changing the repeated scanning cycle of col can improve the stability of displaying complete character information on LED dot matrix.In addition, it should be pointed out that since the operation of addr depends on hardware, the modulus of address pointer addr should be n, and in order to roll all character information through the LED dot matrix, 8 empty data bytes must be added before data n. According to its working principle, a VHDL language program describing the hardware function of FPGA core is designed. This design combines EDA experimental box and MAX PLUS II R & D tool of Altera company, and adopts the way of behavior description.The VHDL program is as follows:libraryieee;use ieee.s td_ logic_ 1164.all;use ieee.s td_ logic_ arith.all;use ieee.s td_ logic_ uns igned.all;entityledisport (clk1,clk2,reset: ins td_logic;led_s: out s td_logic_vector(2downto0);memcs,rd,wr,cs0809,sELmled:out s td_logic;a: out s td_logic_vector(15downto0);ad: out s td_logic_vector(7downto0));end;architecture led_ archoflediss ignalcol:integerrange 0to7;s ignalpage :integerrange 0to15;s ignaloe:s td_ logic;beginproces s(clk2,reset,col)beginifreset=‘’1‘’ thencol《=0;els if(clk2‘’event andclk2=‘’1‘’)thencol《=col1;endif;led_s 《= conv_s td_logic_vector(col,3);a(2downto0)《=conv_s td_logic_vector(col,3);endproces s;proces s(clk1,page)beginif(clk1‘’event andclk1=‘’1‘’)thenpage《=page1;endif;a(6downto3)《=conv_s td_logic_vector(page,4);endproces s;ad《= “ZZZZZZZZ”;oe 《= ‘’0‘’;memcs 《= ‘’0‘’;rd《= ‘’0‘’;wr《= ‘’1‘’;selmled《=‘’1‘’;cs0809《= ‘’1‘’;a(15downto7)《=“100000000”;endled_arch;3 experimental verificationBy using the emulator in EDA tool software MAX plus Ⅱ, the VHDL design of the compiled character rolling display is simulated and verified, which proves that the core hardware of FPGA works well. In addition, after downloading the VHDL program to the EDA test box produced by Shanghai hanghong high tech company, the characters stored in EPROM can be displayed correctly, which explains the hardware system The scrolling and scanning of Chinese characters are also normal, which verifies the correctness of the design.4 Conclusion
Why Does Low Power Factor Make My LED Bulb and Clock Radio Flicker at 0.2 to 3 Hz?
Likely problem: The computer psu is almost certainly running in a "burst" mode, drawing a short pulse of energy occasionally. This is for less than a mains cycle and/or not synchronised to the mains waveform, so the waveform is arbitrary & non sinusoidal with random shape, so many harmonics are produced and power factor is poor. The filtering on the other devices is not adequate to remove the harmonics. Possible solution: Adding a load - maybe via a USB port (fan / light / coffee warmer (higher power) ...). If the USB ports are powered up in this mode then you can probably tailor the load to keep the psu in non burst mode - and waste a few watts in the process1. Will this 20,000k LED bulb function as a grow light?A 20,000K lamp will have peak output at 145 nanometers (Wien's Displacement Law). That's hard ultraviolet. It will hurt your plants. 10,000K still peaks at 290nm, UV. You want a lamp with a far redder color temperature. Here's a nice graph of the wavelengths plants like: See the page Light and Plants2. I have a 60 watt equivalent led bulb that takes 10 watts can i use that and leave it on all night in a 40 watt lamp?Mike's answer is correct but does not answer your question. The LED bulb is actually using only 10 watts, thus lower current and would be safer in the fixture rated for 40 watts. You should be able to leave it on for extended periods with no danger if everything is as you have stated. To be safe, check to see if the socket is getting warm after an hour or so. I leave some like that on 24/7 with no problem3. How do i make a simple LED bulb flash on and off ?The basic concept is a power supply (battery), a switch, and a resistor. How complicated you want to get beyond that is up to you. Although I could understand it's not real fun to run the switch by hand for very long. Beyond that you get into more circuitry; anything from a 555 timer, all the way to playing with a pic-processor like the Arduino which is very popular. It should be easy to find example circuits and even videos.4. How do I make a battery-powered lamp? If it's a LED bulb, could I do it with ONE AA battery?Yes and No ,, A high powered led just one will produce as much light as a 60 watt light bulb ..somewhere around 800 lumens ..it will seem brighter because it's generally more focused but if you shot the beam into a diffuser like a frosted opaque plastic looking lightbulb it would look pretty much the same ,, The down side is ....NO a AA battery wo not do 800 lumens . it takes a serious battery to give you that much light An 18650 battery is a cell like the ones in your lap top battery pack or the ones that the tesla roadster /electric Lotus sports car uses (thousands of them ) The new flashlights use them , the battery is 18mm across and 65mm long and cylinrical so they call it an 18 65 0 18650 It has 3.6 volts basicly and that's like 3 AA batteries It's also a different chemistry ..it's a lithium ion battery like your cell phone battery (which is also about 3.6 to 3.7 volts ) it just has a greater capacity to store energy for a longer period of time because it's bigger than your cell phone battery capacity is measured in amperage . the 800 lumen light would kill the little AA battery in an a matter of minutes ,in fact it would not even run on a AA battery without a small curcuit board called a driver which electronicly boosts the voltage of the AA from 1.2 1.5 volts ...up to 3.6 .. here we are agin at 3,7 volts which lots of electronics curcuits seem to like ..certainly these high power led emitters do . the AAA has i/3rd the power of a AA battery .They are really lame And the AA has 1/3rd the power of a 18650 So this battery about the size of your thumb (if you have a long and fat thumb ) is the most researched and about the best our battery science can give us . We've sort of hit the wall so to speak .Any efficiencies as far as lighting needs to come from the new leds . No is the answer :)
Was Led Zeppelin the Best Band in Terms of Musical Ability?
As much as I love Zep the answer is no. Three bands of same vintage that far exceed Zep in musical ability would be ELP, Yes and of course Pink Floyd and these are just a small example. Both Steve Howe of Yes and David Gilmour of Pink Floyd are far superior guitarists compared to Jimmy Page. The most musically talented member of Zep was of course John Paul Jones.• Suggested ReadingWhat are the differences between an LED Strip 2835 and a 5050?First,you shou know what are the 2835 and 5050 ,According to the power size which can be divided into small power and high power, generally 0.5W above the lamp is called high power lamp; According to shape which can be divided into inline and patch type; Actually, the low-power SMD LED can be divided into 0805, 1206, 3020, 3528, 5050 and etc according to the external dimensions, which is the origin of the aforementioned.if you want get more information about the leds,you can link this blog:------How does industrial revolution led to the emergence of imperialism?Imperialism is much older than the Industrial Revolution.

Since adult Americans in the post-WWII era moved often for college or employment, they began to live separate from their parents. Because of the timing, this group was called the nuclear family------What exactly led to cause riots in Shamli (U.P.)?It was the hatred created by politicians from all major parties among the common people.Crowd was misdirected using religious platforms by political/religious leaders.Administration was equally responsible for not acting on time and was in the mode of just wait and watch.Even media was responsible for giving religious colour to each and every incident/crime in the district.It was totally avoidable.Only poltical parties gained from it. everyone else (common people from every religious background, bureaucrats, police) suffered or suffering from it------Is Avatar Roku responsible for the extinction of air benders?No. He was dead when the Genocide occurred. How can he be held responsible for that? The only culpability he has is that he didnt do enough to stop Sozin, but that could apply to virtually anyone in the world. The Fire Nation nobles and generals. The Earth Kingdom. The Water Tribes. But in the end, Sozin planned and carried out the genocide, so hes the primary one responsible for the genocide------Which is the best LED Vu TV: a 40 inch or a 42 inch?I suggest going for RIDAEX NUKE Series TVs which are the best product you can get with completely loaded specifications and Durable which lasts long.Ridaex Nuke 43 Inch 4K Android 7.1 Smart TV - Version 2Product Technicals : 3840p 4K Ultra High Definition LED Tv With HDR 10 Bit Android 7.1 2GB RAM 16GB Internal Memory 800 Nits Brightness 2 x USB 2.0 , 2 x USB 3.0 100% Stabilizer Free Technology Android Hardware Upgradable> Comes with the Dolby Speakers> Comes with a surprising Magic RemoteAnd Guess what this costs just RS.32,999/-Thanks------What book has transformed you completely?Well, every book I have read did change me in some way or the other. But if I have to name one, then it would be The Alchemist' by Paulo Coelho. When you really want something, the whole universe conspires in giving it to you is something I strongly believe. This book has made me an optimist. Another book would be The Secret'. These books have made me a better person. I would suggest you to read these if you are feeling low or looking for something inspiring------I heard Ireland is rejoining the UK in 2022. How can I stop this?Recognise England Scotland Wales and N.Ireland as being Countries (not colonies )and refuse to deal with the Quisling British Govt in London. We English Scots Welsh and N.Irish and The Countries of Europe were promised by Churchill and Roosevelt that we would have our own Nationally Representative Democratic Governments as soon as the war was finished! These promises were set down within the terms of The Atlantic Charter of 1941 and England has waited to be free of Londons dead hand for long enough!------What are some suggestions for my LED problems?When I first received an LED strip, the lights came on fine, then after testing for about 30 minutes they quit working. When I plug them in they flash once then nothing. The blue light is on, on the power supply. I feel like it could be a remote issue. (Hot! RGB led strip 3528 flexible strip light DC12V 5M 300led24key IR remote controllerpower adapter EU/US/AU/UK Plug free ship)What are your suggestions for my LED problems?------Are there any reasonably priced alternatives for Apple's Thunderbolt Display or LED Cinema Display?There are no third party Thunderbolt displays AFAIK. However, Thunderbolt carries the same display signal as Mini DisplayPort, so you can use a Mini DisplayPort adaptor to go to DisplayPort. HDMI or DVI monitors of your choice.The main issue for Thunderbolt equipped Macs is that the display necessarily would have to be the last link in the Thunderbolt chain, so if you were adding hard drives etc. to Thunderbolt, they would all need to have Thunderbolt pass-through for daisy chaining------Does anyone actually believe Trump is religious?From what Ive seen the only faith he has is in himself. No church attendance, no prayers, no piety, no compassion, no humility, nothing. He courts religious elements by supporting very conservative positions against abortion, etc., but hes more talk and not so much walk.In the end, I think well all see that the only reason Mr. Trump wanted to be president was because of his enormous ego.------Has the Gita led anyone towards Hinduism?Gita is a part of Mahabharata but Mahabharata itself is not among 18 purana . If you walk through 18 Purana , Mahabharata , more than 100 Upanishad and other scriptures , you will not get the very word 'Hinduism . All Indian scriptures are based on four types of VARNAS ie. Brahmana , Kshatriya , Vaishya and Shudra ie. The society has four types if people . Now the question within the above raised question in Quota is that from where this word - Hinduism has come ?------Why do so many programmers have a vertical monitor?It lets you fit more lines of code on screen at once.My current setup is a 29 Ultrawide monitor (21:9) on the left in landscape for Unity, and a 24 in portrait in the right for Visual Studio (10:16), with my Retina MacBook Pro in the middle for everything else.It works great for me, Unity is much easier to deal with in one screen in Ultrawide and code is easier to read on a vertical monitor.------Which right-wing U.S. politicians and activists have successfully opposed the religious right?Two of the largest religious bodies in America, the Catholics and Jews, are renowned for voting Democrat. Its a free country.Catholics vote Democrat for some misplaced notion that the Democrats are for the Little guy or have humanitarian concerns. Methodists and Presbytarians vote Democrat for similar reasons.So there you have it. Religious and right are nothing more than a concept.There are religious people on the right, but they dont behave as a voting body------During the reign of Emperor Susenyos I (Malak Sagad III), Ethiopia was a Catholic nation. What led to the demise of Catholicism: the Ethiopian Orthodox Church, the royal family, or the peasantry?The Ethiopian Orthodox Church is alive and well in Ethiopia and dates back to the 3rd century. It is not dead and is called the Orthodox Tawahedo Church and is autocephelous (meaning its Patriarch is independent) of the Coptic Orthodox Church. I am not sure what you mean by the peasantry as you seem to be completely unaware that Ethiopia is a modern country with univerisities, well established monasteries and a long-standing clergy.------What would be the down-side of outlawing organized religion?This argument is invalidated on the face of it in exactly the same way as most arguments against gun-control are. The Constitution does not GRANT a single right. You have all those rights from just being human. The right to worship as you please is not GRANTED by law, the government is PREVENTED by law (the Constitution) from attempting to deny your already existing right to worship as you wish. So you can attempt to outlaw it with an unconstitutional law, but its not gonna fly------Between Tulsi Gabbard and Kamala Harris, who do Indian Americans prefer?Indian Americans would prefer Tulsi Gubbard because she is strongly supported by RSS backed organizations in the US. She keeps meeting RSS/BJP managers and supports Hindu nationalism to seek Indian American votes.Kamala Harris, though a half Tamil brahmin does not project it for getting votes, and is a straight shooter. She is a candidate for US elections, not Indian elections. She may not show any favoritism to American Indians, but will be good for America------Are your beliefs found in the Bible?No. I dont actually have any beliefs other than make-believe. Anything I make believe about is imaginary. Sometimes things that begin in my imagination actually end up happening:Pretty silly huh?Instead of beliefs, I have internal heuristics. Those are rules of thumb that are based entirely on self-enforcing rules. A good example of a self enforcing rule is the Law of Addition. If you violate it, you are automatically incorrect.------If you like to read science fiction and fantasy, what works fed your interest and led you into this sort of fiction?Memory can be a spotty thing sometimes. What got me started on science fiction, I think, was watching Flash Gordon serials and Rocky Jones, Space Ranger, when I was growing up (mid- to late 50s). Some years later, in high school, I picked up a copy of Asimovs Foundation, on the recommendation of a friend, and I was hooked. On the fantasy side, I first read The Lord of the Rings during the summer of 1967 (just before my senior year in high school). . .and that got me hooked.------Referring to the Holocaust, what is the final solution?The Final Solution (or Endlsung in German) was the plan for systematic genocide, i.e extermination of all Jewish people during WWII. It was the culmination of the racist legislation in the years after Hitler took over control over Germany.After anti-Jewish laws, boycotts of Jewish businesses, and the culmination of it all - the Night of Broken Glass pogrom, the policy of the NSDAP (National Socialist German Workers' Party) towards Jews evolved into a full-scale plan to gather them into camps and exterminate them------What policy decisions and missteps have led the US to be in the position of likely losing Afghanistan and its people to the Taliban?The unwillingness to understand that the Taliban is coterminous with the Pashto ethnic group. The Pashto majority regions in the east and south will NEVER accept anything short of full Taliban rule. But that leaves the north and west, dominated by other ethnicities (Tajik, Uzbek, and Hazara). These groups were treated with shocking cruelty by the Taliban during its previous rule. The obvious solution is to partition the country, and the US is making a mistake by not encouraging it
Knowledge About Military Uniform | Family of Military Uniform
Family of military uniformJames Pattison was born in 1723, the second of three sons of James Pattison, a merchant, and Mary Maxey. His two siblings, Nathaniel (c.17141784) and Samuel (17261756), went on to play important roles in the silk industry in Cheshire, especially in Congleton.James married Mary, daughter of Albert Borgard, the man of Danish origin who was instrumental in the establishment of the Royal Regiment of Artillery. Mary was baptised in 1724 and was buried at St. Nicholas, Plumstead, Kent on 1 July 1792, aged 72. They had a son Nathaniel, born on 8 February 1754 in Perth, Scotland. He died the following year and was also buried at St. Nicholas on 9 December 1755. General Pattison died on 1 March 1805, at his house in Hill Street, Berkeley Square. He was buried on the 9th with his family in Plumstead.------Trucial Oman Scouts of military uniformThe current United Arab Emirates military was formed from the historical Trucial Oman Levies which was established on 11 May 1951. The Trucial Oman Levies, which were renamed the Trucial Oman Scouts in 1956, were considered a long symbol of public order in Eastern Arabia and were commanded by British officers from the British Empire. The Trucial Oman Scouts were turned over to the United Arab Emirates as the nucleus of its defense forces in 1971 with the formation of the UAE and were absorbed into the newly formed united military called the Union Defence Force (UDF). The Union Defence Force was established officially as the military of the United Arab Emirates on 27 December 1971 from a directive issued by the UAE's founding father and first president, Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan.------Signing of military uniformAt the signing ceremony, the President was joined on stage by men and women who had lost family members in two-victim crimes, including Laci Peterson's mother, Sharon Rocha. During his remarks at the ceremony, Bush said, "Any time an expectant mother is a victim of violence, two lives are in the balance, each deserving protection, and each deserving justice. If the crime is murder and the unborn child's life ends, justice demands a full accounting under the law." Senator John Kerry, his main opponent in the 2004 Presidential election, voted against the bill, saying, "I have serious concerns about this legislation because the law cannot simultaneously provide that a fetus is a human being and protect the right of the mother to choose to terminate her pregnancy."------Aduaneros of military uniformThe aduaneros (lit. "customs officers") were a special military force created by Toms de Zumalacrregui during the First Carlist War. They were entrusted with the levying of revenue for various consumer goods. During the first years of the war, they prohibited the export and import of goods to isolated barracks and fortified villages that had sided with the Liberal (Isabeline) cause.The aduaneros' uniform included corduroy pants, jacket, and vest; a flesh-colored corset; blue beret with white tassel; gray cloak; and alpargatas, a sort of light sandal made of hemp. Their weapons included a bandolier and carbine.Mariano Jos de Larra wrote a satirical article about them called "Nadie pase sin hablar con el portero" ("No one can pass without speaking first with the doorman").------Work of military uniformShe started drawing and writing poetry in secret circa 1920, but most of her early work has been destroyed; director of the hospital Hans Steck and general practitioner Jacqueline Porret-Forel first took an interest in 1936, and her work was finally discovered by Dubuffet in 1947. He believed Alose cured herself by ceasing to fight against her illness, by choosing to cultivate it and make use of it instead.Her work is erotic, consisting primarily of beautiful women with voluptuous curves and flowing hair attended by lovers in military uniform. She used the vivid colors of crayons, pencils, and flower juice to fill entire sheets of paper. Her compulsion to make marks on every inch of paper is a "horror vacui" remarkably similar to that of Adolf Wlfli.------Silesian Eagle of military uniformThe Silesian Eagle (German language: Schlesischer Adler) was a medal awarded for fighting the Silesian Uprisings as part of the Freikorps Oberland under the Weimar Republic.Instituted on the 19 of June 1919 by VI. Armee-Korps Generalleutnant Friedrich von Friedeburg, the Silesian Eagle declined itself in two classes, 2nd class for three months of service and 1st class for 6 months of service and could be adorned with oak leaves, swords, or both. This medal was one of the few Freikorps awards that were allowed to be worn on uniforms during the Third Reich after the 1935 ban on unofficial medals. However, the swords, and oak leaves, denoting additional bravery, merit or service were banned, but despite interdictions, many veterans continued wearing them in active military service with the Third Reich.------Campus and academics of military uniformHill Military Academys original campus was located in a residential area in northwest Portland. The campus consisted of two buildings, the main building and an armory. The two-story armory measured 50 by 100 feet and included a drill hall and workshops. Hills main building was a four-story structure with battlements on the exterior wall, and in general designed in the Scots Baronial Style. This building housed the boarding students of the academy.Students at Hill wore uniforms and attended college preparatory classes as well as classes in the military department. The school had both boarding students and day class enrollees. Summer courses were held at camps held on the Oregon Coast or in the mountains. The school was considered a pioneer in military education in the Pacific Northwest.------Aircrew Badge (Nazi) of military uniformThe Aircrew Badge (German: Fliegerschaftsabzeichen) was a German military decoration awarded to members of the German Air Sports Association (Deutscher Luftsportverband or DLV e. V.), an organisation set up by the Nazi Party in March 1933 to establish a uniform basis for the training of military pilots. The German Air Sports Association was a cover organization for the future German Air Force (Luftwaffe). Its chairman was the future Commander in Chief of the Luftwaffe Hermann Gring and its vice-chairman Ernst Rhm. Since the Treaty of Versailles officially forbade Germany from building fighter planes of any sort, the German Air Sports Association used gliders to train men who were still officially civilians for the future Luftwaffe. It was the first qualification badge recognized by the Luftwaffe..------Organization of military uniformAlthough the regiment was organized on January 11, 1812 the regimental colonel, James Burn, was not appointed until April 25. Secretary of War William Eustis delayed recruiting for almost a month, then allowed recruitment of only three out of twelve companies. No clothing or equipment was supplied until September and October. The regiment was not fully equipped until December. Purchase of horses had been ordered in March but by September only half the regiment was mounted; many of its mounts were unfit for service. Eustis scattered the regiment from the Ohio River to New England. One company disappeared from the War Department's records.While stationed at Sackett's Harbor, New York, both the 1st and 2nd Regiments had their strength increased by the transfer of soldiers from the 26th Infantry Regiment.------Support of military uniformAnti-abortion organizations strongly supported the act. On July 3, 2003, the U.S. Judiciary Committee heard testimony for and against passage of the UVVA. Feminists for Life of America President Serrin Foster submitted her own testimony, as well as that of Sharon Rocha. In addition, Foster argued against passage of an alternative bill by Rep. Zoe Lofgren, which would have provided "additional punishment for certain crimes against women when the crimes cause an interruption in the normal course of their pregnancies" but not treated the unborn child as a second victim. "We are asking our elected representatives to honestly answer the question in the case of Laci Peterson and baby Conner," Foster asked. "Was there one victim or two? Those who support the single-victim substitute would deny women justice."------Early life and First World War of military uniformStantke was born in Fitzroy, Victoria, on 15 August 1886. Educated at the University of Melbourne, he served in the Australian Military Forces as a senior cadet from 1906, and was commissioned through this scheme, reaching the rank of captain by 1909. However, after working as teacher at Brighton Grammar School, in 1911 he relinquished his previous rank and joined the Permanent Military Forces. In the Permanent Force, he was appointed to the Administrative and Instructional Staff (A & I Staff), as a lieutenant, before transferring to the Australian Imperial Force (AIF) during the First World War, and being posted as the adjutant of the 29th Battalion on the Western Front during 1917 and 1918. Promoted to captain, in 1919 he served as Deputy Assistant Adjutant-General, 1st Division before returning to Australia later that year.------Louisbourg Grenadiers of military uniformThe Louisbourg Grenadiers was a temporary unit of grenadiers formed by General James Wolfe in 1759 to serve with British Army forces in the Quebec campaign of the Seven Years' War.Grenadiers from the 22nd, 40th, and 45th regiments were brought together by Wolfe at the Fortress of Louisbourg in Nova Scotia in preparation for action along the St. Lawrence River. The unit was involved in numerous battles during the months-long prelude to the Battle of the Plains of Abraham, including the ill-fated Battle of Beauport on July 31, 1759. After Quebec City's capture, the Grenadiers went on to be involved in the fall of Montreal the next year. After the end of the Seven Years' War, the unit was disbanded and its members returned to their original regiments.------Commodore (Canada) of military uniformCommodore (Cmdre) is the lowest flag officer rank in the Royal Canadian Navy of the Canadian Forces. It is equivalent to Brigadier General in the Canadian Army and Royal Canadian Air Force. It is junior to Rear Admiral and Major General, and senior to Captain and Colonel.A wide gold band with executive curl is displayed on each sleeve of the service dress and mess dress. Shoulder boards and rank slip-ons have a single maple leaf, above which is a crossed sabre and baton surmounted by St Edward's Crown.Navy uniform variationsCurrent shoulder board and cuff insigniaDress uniform tunic - pre-2010Cuff insignia - July 2010Shoulder boards for:short-sleeve shirt,tropical white tunic,summer white mess dress,2C shipboard mess dressUniform shirtsCADPAT uniform------Auxiliary Marine Safety (Trident) Device of military uniformThe United States Coast Guard Auxiliary has a similar device called the Auxiliary Marine Safety (Trident) Device. This device is awarded after completion of:The following marine safety courses: Introduction to Marine Safety and Environmental Protection; FEMA Emergency Management Institute Courses ICS 100, ICS 200, ICS 210 or ICS 300, IS 700 and IS 800; and the Ocean Conservancy Good Mate Course.Four Performance Qualification Standards (PQS) as described in the USCG Auxiliary Marine Safety Performance Qualification Standards.Five years of service in Marine Safety & Environmental Protection missions (consisting of at least 96 hours of service per calendar year); however, a conditional award of this device may be awarded based on a recommendation from the local USCG Captain of the Port if all aforementioned requirements are met other than the five years of service.------Celebrations of the golden jubilee of military uniformAfter the parade in Moscow the demonstration march of the workers of various sectors of the Soviet Union took place, preceded by an historic fireworks display at the beginning- one that had never been done before to mark the golden jubilee anniversary of the Revolution. The daytime fireworks display was a once in a lifetime moment and one of the big highlights of that year's Red Square parade. There were parades in cities such as Yerevan, Baku, Tselinograd (modern day Nur-Sultan), Priozersk, and Kubyshev (modern day Samara). During the parade on Lenin Square in Baku, the parade was opened by a guard of honor (from the Baku Higher Combined Arms Command School) instead of drummers, one of the first cities to do that in their annual parade.
Sliding Door Murders Could They Have Been Solved?
When you have been a crime reporter for 40 years, many old cases are long forgotten. But there are those that stick with you - the ones where you still wonder, "What if?" They are the sliding door ones, where the slightest change of circumstance could have brought about justice rather than open files and unanswered questions.Peter MacDiarmid sat in the lounge room of the family home with his wife Sheila by his side as he described their daughter Sarah's last known movements nearly four years earlier. For me, it was a relief he was talking in a matter-of-fact way because it made me feel as though I wasn't intruding on their almost unbearable grief.And then he burst into tears. Sitting next to me was a blonde, female photographer waiting to take a snap for the story. "I'm sorry," he explained to her, "the sun just hit your hair like it would Sarah's." That is the burden of not knowing for relatives of murder victims. It simply never goes away.On July 11, 1990, Sarah played tennis with workmates then caught a train to Kananook Station, arriving about 10.20pm. Police believe she walked to her car carrying her backpack, which contained her work clothes, tennis racquet, Walkman and about $60.The strongest police theory is that a group of homeless drug addicts jumped Sarah as she walked to her 1978 Honda Civic at the railway station car park, stabbed her and stole her backpack. Her body has not been found. Eventually Peter, Sheila and son Alisdair moved to Brisbane to try and escape the daily physical reminders.Peter found that if his eye caught some dumped rubbish he would stop and search in the hope it would lead to Sarah's missing bag. "You would drive around looking for clues. It hurt too much." For Roger and Joy Membrey, the sharp pain of intense grief has been replaced by the dull ache of not knowing. Their daughter Elisabeth was murdered in her Ringwood home in December 1994. And like Sarah, her body has not been found.There were suspects, hope, false dawns and finally, a man charged. Shane Andrew Bond was a regular at the Manhattan Hotel where Elisabeth worked and was implicated by several witnesses as the killer. In 2012 Bond was acquitted of the murder, but has been left damaged by the investigation and trial. He became an ice user and has been moving around the country searching for anonymity.Naturally, the Membreys want the police to keep looking. And the Membreys have an ally from the strangest corner - one of Bond's relatives is calling for a reinvestigation to catch "the real killer".Deborah Boundy was killed by a ruthless group of gangsters to stop her implicating them in a paid hit, even though she had risked her own freedom to protect theirs.Yet after her murder many believed she had jumped bail, with police placing her on the top 10 most wanted list.When hitman Christopher Dale Flannery and his murder partner Kevin "Weary" Williams were charged with the murder of Melbourne businessman Roger Wilson, Boundy became the star prosecution witness.Wilson went missing on his way home to Narre Warren on February 1, 1980 and his body remains undiscovered.Boundy (who was having an affair with Williams) at first implicated the hit team but later retracted.Flannery, and those close to him, believed Boundy remained a loose end - even though she had refused to implicate them at the inquest. And Chris hated loose ends.On Christmas Day 1980 she had lunch with her parents, reported for bail (charged with perjury when she retracted her statement at the inquest) and then slipped over to a Richmond pub for drinks.Someone she knew lured her from the Royal Oak Hotel in Richmond, then forced or tricked her into writing a letter to her parents saying she was running away.So who was the killer?The chief investigator in the case, Frank Bellesini, says gangster Alphonse Gangitano (murdered in 1998) was the main suspect. Flannery was acquitted of the Wilson murder but went missing in Sydney in May 1985. Like Wilson, his body was not found.But the man alleged to have ordered the hit on Wilson and the woman who lured Debbie from the pub remain alive. She wisely keeps a low profile, while he occasionally takes to Twitter as if his past has been forgotten. It hasn't.Conventional wisdom is that serial sex offenders don't stop until they are caught or incapacitated, which makes the case of Karmein Chan so baffling.Karmein, 13, was abducted from her Templestowe home more than a quarter of a century ago in what was clearly a well-planned crime.The offender did his homework and hit the large house surrounded by a two-metre fence when parents, John and Phyllis Chan, were at the family business, a popular Chinese restaurant in Main Road, Lower Plenty.Occasionally I would eat there with then assistant commissioner Frank Green and his wife, Norma. They were regulars, where Phyllis would entertain front of house as part host and part comedian. Years later Frank's wake was held in the same room.Most police involved in the case believe it was a child abductor dubbed Mr Cruel, responsible for at least three other attacks from 1987 to 1991.In the three previous cases the victims had been released, which fed the hope Karmein would eventually be freed. But a year later her body was found at Edgars Creek, Thomastown. She had been shot three times in the head, execution-style.This didn't fit Mr Cruel's profile, as he had previously assured his victims they were not in danger. One told police: "He appeared to be acting out a fantasy like he was married to me. He showed this by the affection he showed to me and how chummy he was to me." Mr Cruel was obsessive about removing any possible forensic evidence - leading police to suspect he may have had some law enforcement experience. He also concealed his face from victims. Mr Cruel was constantly in the headlines, and Karmein told friends that placed in similar circumstances she would fight.This led police to speculate she may have grabbed his mask and was killed because she could identify him.So why did he stop? Perhaps the killing destroyed his elaborate fantasy world, or he was jailed on other offences, or he is dead.A police taskforce codenamed Spectrum identified 27,000 suspects and received 10,000 tipoffs. They checked 30,000 houses and arrested 73 people, but none was identified as Karmein's killer.In 2010 the case was reviewed and all the evidence is intact. All that is needed now is a name. I recently came across an ex-cop known to have molested children who fitted the Mr Cruel profile. But he had been investigated and cleared. Another dead end.If the first 48 hours are considered the most important in a homicide investigation, then the case of Jane Thurgood-Dove may have been doomed from the start.Jane, 34, was shot dead in front of her three children in her Niddrie driveway and the suspicion soon fell on a serving policeman obsessed with the married woman.He fitted the description of the pot-bellied gunman and wanted to buy a cemetery plot next to her's. He built a memorial to her inside his house, his mobile phone number and computer password were derived from her date of birth, and to top it off he failed a lie detector test when asked, "Are you responsible for the death of Jane Thurgood-Dove?" The case, while short of justifying laying charges, appeared compelling except for one flaw. He didn't do it.For five years police pursued the wrong man just as the killer had pursued the wrong woman, for the paid hitman was supposed to kill another blonde mother who lived in Muriel Street. The target was Carmel Kyprianou, whose crooked husband, Peter, had a habit of making enemies.One was former Crown solicitor Philip Peters, who had been caught planning to abduct and torture Kyprianou over a $200,000 fraud scam.Jane was killed in November 1997, just months after Peters was released after serving time for the abduction plot.Once the policeman suspect was cleared, the murder theory became that a drug dealer Peters met in prison was the go-between for the murder contract.The dealer, who once worked for Australia's biggest amphetamine syndicate, used his connections to pull together a hit team from Geelong bikies. Police say the triggerman was former Rebels Motorcycle Club bikie Steven John Mordy, while his mate, James Ian Reynolds, organised the getaway car.Before police could move Mordy died of natural causes and Reynolds in a boating accident, meaning the case appears to be at a dead end. But, and it is a big but, the go-between is still alive and there is a million-dollar reward on offer.And in the underworld, greed is a bankable currency that can sometimes prick the conscience of even the most callous crim.Crime Stoppers: 1800 333 000.
Why Are LCD and LED so Prefered Over Plasma TVs?
It depends on who you ask. Personally I prefer plasma due to the stunning image quality with movies and sports. I think most "videophiles" would get a plasma over LCD. If I were buying a TV for the bedroom, guest bedroom, etc. I would probably get an LCD. For my main home theater setup, its plasma all the way. BTW: My plasma has an anti-glare screen.1. What to get, Plasma or LCD?Use a seek engine style in plasma vs liquid crystal show. do no longer seek LED, because of the fact it is in basic terms merchandising. LED TVs are in basic terms liquid crystal show TVs with LED backlights extremely of CCFL backlights. liquid crystal show TVs with LEDs many times carry out greater suited than different liquid crystal show TVs, yet they nonetheless have all the failings of liquid crystal show TVs2. What are possible reasons to use Cathode-Ray Displays by tech-advanced civilizationsCRT is essentially a vacuum tube on steroids.While it took us a long time to develop LCD technology, at its core are liquid crystals. The modern LCD use LED for backlight, a solid-state semiconductor technology. Do you see already, where I am going? Let's heal a headache with decapitation!And also no germanium or gallium arsenide.Transistors were never invented. Diodes are still regarded an esoteric technology part from early radio days: detector radios are just as primitive as camera obscura and just that far from the real modern tech.While LCD is strictly not a transistor-based tech, it became practical in the integrated circuit era. The major benefit of LCD (even with non-OLED backlight) is its size. You do not really need to spare on size, if your devices are not portable anyway.So, just follow the tube-based electronics ad absordum. People still built TVs and computers with it in real history. So, things like "let's simulate an earthquake or an A-bomb explosion" are still feasible. Things like "let's give almost everyone a portable device with computation speed of a decade-old supercomputer to look at pictures of cats" are rather not. Already in our history people got quite creative with tubes. Tubes in metal hulls. Mini-tubes. Tubes almost as efficient as easy as early transistors. You microwave is most certainly still tube-based deep inside. Unsure, if PCBs exist, by the way. While early tube design surely did not have this, in the later years people indeed used some circuit boards. This could habe been the transistor influence or indeed a genuine development. People generally get very creative with a technology piece, especially in absence of alternatives. So, expect a lot of creative usage and miniaturisation of the tubes, but not "transistor revolution" and also no "digital revolution".Those elsewise poor folks also happen to have a much better and nicer sound, if you ask audiophiles, but I digress.Byline: The whole solid-state electronics was missed by this version of humanity. Or even the physics in that world does not work this way: tubes work, transistors do not . (Doubt.)Anyway, they do not have LCD display, because CRT is enough.

How To Clean Quartz CountertopsAs quartz countertops have climbed to match the popularity of Granite, more people are asking, "What is the best way to clean quartz countertops?" Today, we will discuss the proper cleaning methods to use on your quartz counters. The number of quartz countertop installs will continue to rise due to the materials durability and beauty. Quartz is a manmade product and constructed with resins and recycled materials like glass and other materials. This production process not only creates a durable surface, it allows for endless beautiful designs and colors to be created and repeated. Also created in this process is a hermetic seal, this seal keeps bacteria and other bad elements from seeping into your beautiful surfaces. This is a nice advantage over natural stones, as these natural materials need to have a seal treatment to help stop staining and possible bacteria seeping down into your countertops. Although we have touched on a few basic perks of choosing Quartz countertops, we need to establish that a consistent cleaning routine be put into place. This is the only way to ensure that your quartz counters stay in pristine condition. Below, we will walk you through, our guide on how to clean quartz countertops, and the best practices for keeping your quartz surfaces clean and brilliant for years to come. Our recommendation is that you clean your quartz countertops on a daily basis. Creating this simple habit will help ensure that spills will not stain and food will not become stuck to your beautiful quartz surface. For cleaning, all you will need is a solution of mild dish detergent and warm water. The process we suggest to use is as follows; Fill a medium size bowl with warm water, then add a generous amount of the mild dish detergent. Gently combine the two ingredients until the detergent is dissolved in the water. From here on it is wetting a towel and wiping the surface in a circular motion until the entire surface has been wiped. To dry, just grab paper towels or a fresh towel to wipe away the excess water and detergent solution. Sometimes accidents happen and you might run across a tougher spill or stain on your quartz countertops that warm water and mild detergent will not remove. There are some other cleaning methods that you can try. Although these are generally safe to use on quartz surface, always refer to the owner's manual or your installer to avoid any permanent damages while trying to remove these tough stains. If you come across needing to remove a pen mark or the accidental permanent marker marking isopropyl rubbing alcohol could help remove these marks. Since the rubbing alcohol is a solvent it should break down the inks and marker and make wiping away easy. Start by pouring a small amount of the rubbing alcohol on the mark, with a clean towel rub the surface in a circular motion to remove the stain. Once you have accomplished this pour a small amount of warm water on the area and dry with a clean towel. Let's say your surface develops a soap stain or hard water deposit, well we have a solution for those situations. To help remove these types of issues we recommend a vinegar and water solution mixed 1:1. In a medium sized bowl mix one part warm water and one part vinegar, stir the mixture, then pour a generous amount on the affected area. Wipe the area down with a clean towel. After you have removed the trouble spot wipe again with warm water to remove the to mix solution from completely from the surface. End by drying with a clean towel or paper towel. Now the dreaded grease residue, you can use a degreaser cleaning product. However, only use such a product designed specifically for quartz countertops. Please head all of the instructions laid out by the products manufacturer as product is different. After using one of these products rinse thoroughly with warm water! Again, please exercise extreme care while using any of the aforementioned methods. DO NOT leave your surfaces unattended while working with these methods. Always, rinse your quartz countertops thoroughly after using these cleaning processes. Above all else, reference your quartz manufacturer's guidelines for cleaning your particular quartz surface. The majority of quartz countertop manufacturers provide their recommended cleaning methods and supplies to use on their surfaces. A quick summary of their products to avoid are sponges, pads, and abrasive cleaners. These products can cause irreversible damage to your countertops. Also, harsh scrubbing will lead to a dull finish on quartz countertops. Concentrated bleach should be avoided while cleaning your quartz as this product can leave stains. Any cleaner that have a high pH level should be avoided, examples of these cleaners are grill cleaners, oven cleaners, dishwasher detergent and paint removers. Most of these methods will void any product warranty you have on your quartz. Now we will discuss other good habits to incorporate with the cleaning habits we began with. We have a few tips that will help with the longevity of your quartz countertops. Quartz is a very resilient material, however, it is not indestructible. Always place a protective barrier between hot pots and pans. Heat damage can be a scary topic as quartz does not stand up to heat as well as its natural stone counterparts. If you do not use a trivet or pot holder under a hot pot or pan you can create discoloration on your surface. Avoid placing hot items directly on your quartz countertops. Another tip, do not cut or chop anything directly on your quartz. These motions will add cuts and scratches into the resin leaving your countertops vulnerable to stains and other issues. Finally, we will end with where we began. Creating a daily habit of wiping down the quartz surface with a mild detergent and warm water solution will help keep your countertops beautiful and help in their longevity.
What You Need to Know About Installing LED Lights in Your Car Or Truck
Like many car, truck, and sport utility vehicle(SUV) owners across the country and around the world, you may be highly interested in converting different lights on your vehicle with light-emitting diode (LED) bulbs. This may include the replacement of LED headlights, LED taillights, LED fog lights, and a full spectrum of LED lights for the interior. With that noted, there are a number of important facts and factors to bear in mind when it comes to converting to LED lights.LED Lights Are the Future of Vehicle IlluminationIf you are like many people, you are interested in being up-to-date with the latest and greatest technology. The fact is that LED lights represent the future of vehicle illumination. With each passing year, not only are an ever-increasing number of motor vehicle owners switching out their traditional lighting equipment to LED options but manufacturers are more frequently building vehicles with LED lights as standard equipment. This trend certainly is expected to continue into the future.Due to the manner in which LED lights are designed and manufactured, they create significantly more illumination output per watt than do their traditional incandescent bulb counterparts. Perhaps more significantly, LED light accomplishes this important objective by using what amounts to only a fraction of the electrical draw associated with traditional incandescent alternatives.Moreover, LED lights do not waste power creating unnecessary heat energy. As a consequence, LED lights are relatively cool to the touch in nearly all situations.Finally, unlike traditional incandescent bulbs, LED lights have no filament that ends up consumed during use. The net effect of this feature is that LED lights have substantially longer lifespans that most incandescent bulbs traditionally found incorporated into motor vehicles.You Can Select the LED Light Bulb Color that Meets Your Needs and DesiresAnother consideration to bear in mind when it comes to selecting LED light bulbs for your car is color. The color decision is easier when it comes to LED headlights, LED fog lights, and LED taillights. When it comes to exterior colors for LED bulbs, the selected light must coordinate with the color of the lens. You must select exterior LED light bulbs that meet the specific legal requirements of the state in which the vehicle is registered. For example, LED bulbs for tail lights must be white or red in order to harmonize with the color of a tail light lens.You have tremendous flexibility when it comes to the colors of LED lights for the interior of your vehicle. LED interior lights come in a wide range of color options:You Can Convert Your Headlight Bulbs to LED with Plug-and-Play BulbsYou may wonder whether there are any LED headlight conversion problems. You may wonder whether there can be issues with other types of LED bulb conversions. The reality is that most conversion kits feature relatively easy-to-use plug-and-play bulbs. This includes h4(high output) LED bulb conversion kits.The reality is that there is a considerable array of different types of LED replacement kits that feature plug-and-play bulbs:These types of kits are compatible with more than just recently-built vehicles. In fact, virtually any car or truck manufactured in the past 50 years is capable of being refitted with plug-and-play LED replacement bulbs.You do need to make a special note about turn signal LED replacement bulbs. If you intend to replace your front and rear turn signal bulbs to LED derivations, bear in mind that many vehicles have what is known as a flasher unit. The flasher unit is designed to work with traditional incandescent bulbs.As a consequence, an issue may arise when the objective is to replace traditional incandescent turn signal bulbs with LED alternatives. Without a resistor (a specialized adapter), replacing a traditional bulb with an LED one can result in turn signal lights flashing far too rapidly. This condition is called "hyper flashing." The flasher unit might interpret this hyper flashing as being a burned-out bulb, when that technically is not the case.Hyper flashing can be avoided by obtaining a set of relatively easy to install resistors. In very basic terms, resistors fool the flasher unit so that the unit does not interpret hyper flashing as a bulb failure or burned out bulb.A resistor creates the proper amount of resistance. This action results in the front and back turn signals flashing at the correct or proper rate.Invest Now in LED Lights for Your VehicleWhile LED lights generally do cost more than traditional incandescent alternatives, paying a bit more for this type of lighting nearly always proves to be a cost-saving investment in the long run. Because LED lights have a longer lifespan than incandescent bulbs, they need replacement with significant less frequency than traditional alternatives.Indeed, if you end up owning your vehicle the average length of time a person keeps a car, truck, or SUV, odds are strong that you may never reach the day in which the replacement of LED lights become an option. This is the case with factory-installed bulbs as well as replacement LED bulbs.If you are contemplating giving your vehicle an upgrade, replacing traditional light bulbs on and in your ride is a great way of enhancing your car, truck, or SUV on many levels. Through LED bulbs, you can improve the overall illumination associated with your vehicle. You can enhance your vehicle's looks and save money in the long term.Parents whose kids have Power Wheels cars/trucks?What do you say to all the suffering that went on before we blew up Baghdad? What do you say to the kids whose mom's were raped and tortured by Saddam's thugs? What do you tell the kids whose fathers were beaten and tortured and killed for no good reason accept for the blood thirsty twisted maniacal Saddam and sons found their deaths entertaining? What about Islam? What do we tell our kids when they come here and for the sake of their Allah, torture and mutilate us because their religion tells them to? Would that be better? You only see what the media shows you. You are not there. You do not know see what is really going on there. The media only tells the sensational part of the story and believe it or not it only tells what the government finds helpful. Understand this as well. When you sign the dotted line and join the armed forces you offer your life. There is always a chance that war will happen even in peace time and those soldiers knew what they were doing when they signed. That is why we honor them and hold them in such high regards. They are doing a job only few can do. God bless them! I am grateful for their sacrifice to keep me safe. That is the nature of war. If we had not gone to war with Islam (essentially that is what we are fighting) and terrorism, we would have appeared weak to the rest of the world which would have opened the door for them to do exactly what they dream of doing; destroy us. The enemy exploits all weakness when the desired result is destruction. Imperialism? Seriously. So would you call our current Prez one who believes in democracy? Please. No they were not from Iraq but they were Islam with one mission in mind; seek and destroy. They were Al-Queada which are from Afghanistan (where we are also fighting currently) but again, it is Islam and terrorists which most of the time go hand-in-hand. Al-Queade, Taliban, Hamas are all anti-American and if we do not keep ourselves safe from ALL of them they will come here and hurt us on our own soil like the did on 9/11
