December 8, 4: TheWrap first broke the news that the former employee went to Los Angeles police last month to report that Guillod raped her at the wine-country retreat. A rep for Guillod, who has denied any wrongdoing, said his attorney has spoken to Santa Barbara investigators. Guillod, and all of the allegations made have been proactively investigated by Mr. Two employees who saw the assistant immediately after her encounter with Guillod said that she appeared confused and extremely upset. The merger went through a few months after the assistant left the company. In addition to Barth and the assistant, two other women have also accused Guillod.

This section recounts the first atomic bombing. While President Truman had hoped for a purely military target, some advisers believed that bombing an urban area might break the fighting will of the Japanese people. Hiroshima was a major port and a military headquarters, and therefore a strategic target. Also, visual bombing, rather than radar, would be used so that photographs of the damage could be taken.

A T-shaped bridge at the junction of the Honkawa and Motoyasu rivers near downtown Hiroshima was the target. The bomb exploded some 1, feet above the center of the city, over Shima Surgical Hospital, some 70 yards southeast of the Industrial Promotional Hall now known as the Atomic Bomb Dome.

To be more specific:

Life And Time One of the first ways in which we learn to classify objects is into two groups: In casual encounters with the material universe, we rarely feel any difficulty here, since we usually deal with things that are clearly alive, such as a dog or a rattlesnake; or with things that are clearly nonalive, such as a brick or a typewriter. Nevertheless, the task of defining “life” is both difficult and subtle; something that at once becomes evident if we stop to think.

Consider a caterpillar crawling over a rock. The caterpillar is alive, but the rock is not; as you guess at once, since the caterpillar is moving and the rock is not. Yet what if the caterpillar were crawling over the trunk of a tree? The trunk isn’t moving, yet it is as alive as the caterpillar. Or what if a drop of water were trickling down the trunk of the tree? The water in motion would not be alive, but the motionless tree trunk would be.

It would be expecting much of anyone to guess that an oyster were alive if he came across one for the first time with a closed shell. Could a glance at a clump of trees in midwinter, when all are standing leafless, easily distinguish those which are alive and will bear leaves in the spring from those which are dead and will not? Is it easy to tell a live seed from a dead seed, or either from a grain of sand?

For that matter, is it always easy to tell whether a man is merely unconscious or quite dead? Modern medical advances are making it a matter of importance to decide the moment of actual death, and that is not always easy.

With time, it became apparent that this classification scheme was much too simple. A fourth category, known as spontaneous fission, also had to be added to describe the process by which certain radioactive nuclides decompose into fragments of different weight. Alpha decay is usually restricted to the heavier elements in the periodic table. Only a handful of nuclides with atomic numbers less than 83 emit an -particle.

The product of -decay is easy to predict if we assume that both mass and charge are conserved in nuclear reactions. Alpha decay of the U “parent” nuclide, for example, produces Th as the “daughter” nuclide.

Shorter Working Hours This boils down to “as the amount of available work shrinks, it will have to be rationed so everybody can have a job. If the amount of available work is now zero, so will be the size of your work-ration. Broadening the ownership of technological assets If the only way to make money is by either owning robots or owning stock, then the government will have to give everybody free robots and stock so they can live. Again, who is going to pay for this?

And there are those who say that the rich should foot the bill for a solution, telling them that this is the fee for “guillotine insurance. The elites will share their wealth only insofar as it’s cheaper to do that bread and circuses than it is to keep the proles at bay through force. What Marx saw as an inexorable trend towards socialism may have in fact just been a temporary consequence of the industrial revolution, wherein labor was especially important and the power of an individual worker was large in historical terms.

It’s not impossible to imagine a sort of “Neo Feudalism” where a small minority of elites find it cheaper to maintain control via technological force-multipliers than to share their earnings such that everyone is actually happy or nearly so. In other words, the rich will do the math and may well discover that a private army is cheaper than funding a Basic Income. Autocrats, it turns out, need a lot of wealth to pay their cronies. No dictator rules alone; they need someone to run the military, someone to collect the taxes, and someone to enforce the laws.

Those people have to be paid, and handsomely, or they’ll overthrow the dictator or just allow the dictator to be overthrown. This is called “selectorate theory” and this video is a great introduction.

Explaining and how to calculate the relative atomic mass RAM or Ar of an element What is the relative atomic mass of an element? What scale is relative atomic mass based on? What is the formula to work out the relative atomic mass of an element? How to calculate relative atomic mass Introduction Every atom has its own unique relative atomic mass RAM based on a standard comparison or relative scale e. The relative atomic mass scale is now based on an isotope of carbon, namely, carbon , nuclide symbol , which is given the arbitrary value of The unit ‘amu’ is now being replaced by a lower case u, where u is the symbol for the unified atomic mass unit.

Since the relative atomic mass of an element is now based on the carbon isotope it can now be defined as Examples are shown in the Periodic Table diagram above. Just scan the periodic table above and examine the pairs of numbers. This has consequences for nuclear stability. At Advanced level, values of relative atomic masses may be quoted to one or two decimal places.

Many atomic masses are known to an accuracy of four decimal places, but for some elements, isotopic composition varies depending on the mineralogical source, so four decimal places isn’t necessarily more accurate! In using the symbol Ar for RAM, you should bear in mind that the letter A on its own usually means the mass number of a particular isotope and amu is the acronym shorthand for atomic mass units.
