What are the benefits of Birkenstocks?

Let me just preface this by saying I LOVE Birks. I am, in fact, wearing Birks as I type this. Be prepared because I will answer this in gratuitous detail. I may or may not wax poetic.

If you’re the TL;DR type of person, I’ll sum it up with: they offer amazing arch support; as a result, they are insanely comfortable and you can wear them walking all day. They also come in a bunch of lovely colours and styles (though depending on your geographic location they might not all be available where you are, as is the case with my country, the Philippines.)

That’s pretty much it, but if you want to go on a bit of an adventure with me, read on.

When I went to Europe in 2013, I brought my Doc Martens and Keds with me. They were cute and stylish and went with the outfits I had planned to wear.

Then I experienced a day walking around Rome in my Docs. By 4pm, we were in Saint Peter’s Square in the Vatic

What is the good thing about NIT Rourkela?

Beware! …Sarcasm ahead.

Good thing about NIT Rourkela, right?

  • Read thoroughly for 4 years (it’s 5 for dual degree), do all sort of practicals, clear all courses, submit assignments, always be prepared for tests and viva, to end up in a company which pays you a salary of 2.6LPA. I am NOT joking, here’s the proof :

  • Now, do you think learning is all about listening to lectures? Extremely strict attendance system has curbed all possibilities of creativity. Absence of more than 8 lectures in a semester, and the grade is mercilessly reduced by one step 🙁

How to deal with relatives who are control freaks

Thank you for the A2A Anisa! You happened to ask the right person, since I “might” have one or two of those!

The quick answer is this: boundaries, boundaries, boundaries.

Control freaks have a secret they don’t want you to know. Want me to tell you? Shhh don’t tell anyone, ok? They have loads and loads of anxiety because they feel out of control. Yeah, isn’t it weird? They act like bullies, but they are filled with anxiety, which is, in essence, fear. So what they do is they strong-arm people into doing what they think they need them do to in order for them to feel like they have control over the situation. But it’s all an illusion anyway. You are not responsible for their anxiety or fear. You don’t want to freak them out, of course, but you can’t shoulder the burden of their panic! Fuck that shit.

There are a few truths I have adopted as sort of “relationship policies” that might help you as well. It’s not exactly a manifesto, but some really helpful guidelines and rules of thumb when it comes to those really super challenging people that you can’t seem to extricate yourself from.

  • Takers don’t like boundaries, so it’s up to givers to set them, and enforce them.
  • You can’t use logic and reason to explain things to people who are irrational and unreasonable.
  • Never sacrifice your needs for the conveniences of others.
  • If someone asks you a question, you are not obligated to answer.
  • If someone is awful to you they are probably awful to other people (so don’t take it personally)
  • If someone talks about others behind their back to you, be assured they are talking about you too
  • Don’t share personal things about your life with people who are inclined to hurt you
  • Whether you do what “they” like or don’t like, they will be no more, or less, angry with you. How they respond is not your responsibility.

I think most are self explanatory, but I want to say a little about the last one.

If you have to walk on eggshells to keep someone happy and calm, you have to look at th

Is America scared of North Korea?

The United States isn’t “scared” of North Korea. The United States, like Japan, South Korea, and honestly, China, is concerned that the leadership of North Korea is so unstable and erratic that without warning it may do something extremely dangerous, with ramifications that no one wants to contemplate.

Economically North Korea is a basket case. It is led by a young , impulsive, insecure thug, who derives his authority merely from being the son of the former autocrat — who derived his authority from his father’s dictatorship and his legend as a “revolutionary hero”. The regime is sustained domestically through terror and internationally through the threat to its neighbors posed its large military. It holds South Korea — and by implication, the US — hostage to its irrationality by the deployment of hundreds of artillery pieces and rockets within range of Seoul. It maintains a nuclear program with no clear objective other than, as revealed by its propaganda, as a tool to incinerate its enemies, most notably (even if impossibly), the US. But because of that artillery threatening Seoul, they are somewhat immune to any preemptive military s

What is a portfolio equity?

Asked: What is a portfolio equity?

Your question is too short to wander around all of the possibilities of where you heard this term and why, but I will explain just one of the possible concepts — could be useful.

Equity is, of course, an ownership stake in a company. You can own one or more shares of equity in a public company like Apple or IBM. This would be a percentage of the total equity ownership of the company. The same concept works for private companies, but the shares are not publicly traded, so you might “own” some equity (or all of it), yet not be able to sell it without permission from the company (or other restrictions written into the company’s bylaws).

The term “portfolio” refers to a collection of equities, literally, the proof of a percentage of ownership in more than one (usually a few or dozens) company. It is surely derived from the days when company ownership was only represented by physical certificates issued by the company on special paper with special seals. To hold your various certificates of equity, you would obtain a portfolio-style briefcase and put all of your papers in there. You would carry

How high should energy be to be accounted within the realm of high energy physics?

“High energy physics” is basically a synonym for “particle physics” that emerged in the 1950s or 1960s.

The effective laws of physics may be organized according to energy. When we’re interested in low-energy phenomena, we don’t need to know the details of higher energy physics.

High energy physics in particular refers to the laws and phenomena with energies higher than those are seen in natural processes near the Earth, including nuclear reactions. So high energy physics should include “everything with energies above those of nuclear physics”. This definition also explains another synonym, “subnuclear physics”.

Nominally, the energy should be roughly greater than 1 GeV – one gigaelectronvolts – to be counted as high energy physics. Energies below 1 GeV, especially those around several MeVs, are typical for processes in nuclear physics that may occur rather naturally, including the radioactive decay. Above 1 GeV (which is approximately the latent energy of a proton stored in its mass via E = mc^2), one needs accelerators which are man-made – and that’s another approximate condition to define where high energy physics begins. Once you start to need accelerators instead of naturally decaying isotopes etc., you are beginning to study high energy physics.

There is no sharp cutoff where the high energy physics ends but 1 GeV would be close enough to everyone’s definition. Well, it’s plausible that someone would say 100 MeV or, on the contrary, 10 GeV. Also, 1 GeV is arguably the most “familiar” unit of high energy physicists that they could quote. 13 TeV, the center-of-mass energy of the LHC, is “safely” above the lower bound where high energy physics starts. It’s surely considered high energy physics. At least three heaviest quark species, the Higgs boson, and the W- and Z-bosons require high energy physics to be created.

When you ask about the nominal value, you should also ask “which component or combination of energies” one should compare to the numerical value. So the 1 GeV bound above referred to quantities such as the momentum transfer times the speed of light, E = qc, to get the units of energy. When particles are colliding at speeds close to the speed of light, like protons at the LHC, the center-of-mass energy is equally good. The momentum transfer is particularly natural because its inverse multiplied by Planck’s constant determines the distance scale, the resolution that the collisions may probe.

So the LHC – and most other accelerators, much weaker ones – are doing high-energy physics because the center-of-mass energy of the colliding particles (which are close to the speed of light) exceeds 1 GeV or so.

Why do celebrities make videos for Caspar Lee?

In my opinion Caspar’s channel like the other channels that do these kinds of videos , are a platform in which people can promote their movies or albums or books etc. Because youtubers like Caspar lee have a relatively young audience and have huge impact. But thats not the only reason of course . He might just be friends with them.Take Liam Payne for example.

Hope this was somewhat helpful.

How does one survive if he/she is not smart?

Luck works incredibly well, being born rich would also help. Look at the basic human needs, we have created a society where these are achievable independent of need for a high intellect. Better yet though, intellect isn't needed at all, plenty of species literally have none, just not most of the large species. Evolution doesn't actually have a preference, it's just whatever breeds and survives in highest quantity.

What was the role of cannabis in the ancient world?

There's evidence out there that suggests cannabis and hemp were used exactly as nature intended. The Chinese were using it in medicine thousands of years ago and civilisations like the Egyptians (and possibly Greeks) were using hemp for a variety of purposes. It was only VERY recently in relation to Earth's history that it became outlawed. But let's not get into politics now.
