Congratulations to the United States’ women’s soccer team for winning the World Cup on Sunday, the second straight world championship for the team.Yet, praise and popularity isn’t enough. The women’s team isn’t paid as much the men’s team.On Sunday in Lyon, France, the introduction of French President Emmanuel Macron and FIFA Presidentt Gianni Infantino for the on-field trophy presentation was followed by boos and then chants of “equal pay.” The call for higher pay meshes with the U.S. team captain Megan Rapinoe’s campaign for more equitable prize money from the World Cup organizers and compensation from the U.S.
Silicate Units, Silicate Chains, Silicate SheetsThe basic unit of silicate, [SiO4]4- tetrahedron, can form single and double chains and sheets.Learning ObjectivesDescribe the various structures of silicates.Key TakeawaysKey PointsThe basic building block of all silicate minerals is the [SiO4]4− tetrahedron.Silicate minerals containing chains are termed inosilicates. In single chains (SiO32−)n, the silicon to oxygen ratio is 1:3, while in double chains (Si4O116−)n, the silicon to oxygen ratio is 4:11.The formula of silicate sheet is (Si2O52−)n. Silicate minerals containing sheets are termed phyllosilicates.Key TermsInosilicates: Inosilicates, or chain silicates, have interlocking chains of silicate tetrahedrons.Silicate: A silicate (SiO44-) is a compound containing a silicon-bearing anion.Phyllosilicates: Sheet silicate minerals, formed by parallel sheets of silicate tetrahedrons Si2O52-.Silicate TetrahedronsThe basic building block of all silicate minerals is the [SiO4]4− tetrahedron.
When I was seven, I joined the Brownies. At the time, becoming part of Baden-Powell’s famous organisation felt very grown up. However, when I reflect on the experience, I realise that being a Brownie is worth doing only if you start when you’re very young. It’s full of peculiar rituals, and only now that I am 31, and no one incentivises me to do anything by offering me a special badge, do I recognise how odd some of them wereOne in four UK smartphone owners does not make phone calls weeklyWe were given badges for applying bandages to our ungrazed knees, remembering to keep a sewing kit in the pockets of our culottes, and successfully using a payphone to make a call.

This 12 year-old expression from The Balvenie is aged in first- or second-fill bourbon casks, with up to a further year in first-fill oloroso sherry casks. While The Balvenie’s range is typified by honey and a distinct heather flavor, the DoubleWood’s sherry influence is bigger and weightier, hiding some of those delicate florals. The Balvenie is my favorite Speyside distillery, and they have an interesting range of different cask finishes, from port barrels to a new rum cask matured 14-year.Color: Medium GoldNose: Smells like peaches and peach-pit, marzipan, cedarwood and pine, honeydew melon.

There’s a universal question that most writers struggle to answer: How to choose a point of view for your novel. There are, obviously, several different points of view available to you—and, less obviously, several advantages and disadvantages to each.First person First person POV refers to the I, we, me, my, mine, us narrator, often the voice of the heroic character or a constant companion of the heroic character. There I was, minding my own beeswax when she up and kissed me. I near passed out.ADVANTAGES OF THIS POV: • It feels natural to most writers because we live in an I world. • You have to deal with only one mind: the narrator’s. • You can create a distinctive internal voice. • You can add an element of craft by creating a narrator who is not entirely reliable.DISADVANTAGES OF THIS POV: • You are limited to writing about what the narrator can see or sense. • The narrator must constantly be on stage or observing the stage. • You can’t go into the minds of other characters.Second person The you narrator, this POV is rarely successful, and even then works best in shorter books. For an example of second person POV, check out Jay McInerney’s Bright Lights, Big City.
It is widely accepted knowledge that the universe, upon its creation, and even now, is mainly composed of hydrogen. This light gas is so common, yet few people know how important it is to our universe and how many great uses it can have in technological applications. Learn about the effect hydrogen has in your daily life.Hydrogen in Stars•••Jason Reed/Photodisc/Getty ImagesOur own sun, as well as trillions of other stars in the universe, fuses hydrogen into helium to produce energy. Its energy is known on Earth as light and heat.

Humans love dogs more than their fellow man.Two major studies showed that mankind has more empathy for pooches in dire circumstances than suffering people, according to a report in the Times of London.A UK medical research charity staged two phony donation campaigns — one for a dog and the other featuring a man. Of course, the pooch drew more contributions.“Would you give 5 pounds to save Harrison from a slow, painful death?” the separate ads said, featuring a canine and human “Harrison.”Then a Northeastern University study showed that only a baby human could compete with man’s best friend.Students were shown fake newspaper clippings about a baseball-bat attack on a puppy, an adult dog, a year-old infant and a 30-year-old adult. They were asked questions to gauge their empathy and the adult finished last in sympathy.“Respondents were significantly less distressed when adult humans were victimized, in comparison with human babies, puppies and adult dogs,” according to Northeastern researchers. “Only relative to the infant victim did the adult dog receive lower scores of empathy.”

America has been doing income taxes wrong for more than 50 years.All Americans, including the rich, would be better off if top tax rates went back to Eisenhower-era levels when the top federal income tax rate was 91 percent, according to a new working paper by Fabian Kindermann from the University of Bonn and Dirk Krueger from the University of Pennsylvania. The top tax rate that makes all citizens, including the highest 1 percent of earners, the best off is “somewhere between 85 and 90 percent,” Krueger told The Huffington Post. Currently, the top rate of 39.6 percent is paid on income above $406,750 for individuals and $457,600 for couples.

Rome was a Republic for about 500 yearsAfter defeating Tarquin, the last king of Rome, Rome was a republic. The republic lasted almost 500 years.The Roman Republic was run by the Senate, which was made up of members of the patricians (the rich). The people of Rome elected the two top Senators called consuls. The consuls selected senators. You could only be a consul for one year, then you had to be elected by the people again. This system worked well. The Republic lasted almost 500 years. Compare that to the USA, which is only about 250 years old, and you get an idea of how successful they were.Government Under the Roman RepublicSPQRCompare & Contrast US Government and the Roman Republic (SPQR)12 TablesPlebs & PatriciansRoman CitizensDaily LifeThe FamilyStatus of WomenRoman HousesClothing & Hair StylesThe ForumThe BathsKids & SchoolWedding CustomsRoman MosaicsRoman LegionRoman RoadsProvinces / ExpansionThe Aeneid by VirgilHannibal / Punic WarsJulius CaesarCiceroThe Republic FailsMaps & TimelinesInteractive Review: Ask Mr. Donn Questions and Answers about the Roman RepublicRome Review Q&A
