They didn't. The malfunctions have all been in containment and cleanup systems. All Japanese nuclear reactors were closed down after the tsunami, and only two, a long way from Fukushima, have restarted - against considerable protest. None of the reactors at that site will ever run again.
This is to replace the Type A, the one at the Master end, usually on your PC. Of course, with "On The Go" and Power Delivery, which is master and which slave will become less obvious.
True, but it is still getting the speed from one balanced pair each way compared to Ethernet's four. Yes, it has a USB 1/2 interface hung on the side, but a stand alone interface it is pretty efficient. The legacy interface is what puts the conductor count up.
In part, Ethernet uses 4 balanced pairs to get 10 Gbit/s, so only 2.5 Gbit/s per pair; USB3 gets 4 Gbit/s over one balanced pair so is achieving more data per pair. Then again, USB2 has lower cost targets because it is intended to be on many low-cost devices (keyboards, cheap memory sticks etc) leading to many endpoints whereas generally there are only two Ethernet endpoints per computer (on on the computer, on on the switch it is connected to) so a higher per endpoint cost is supportable. Ethernet is single minded: do one job well. USB is trying to be all things to all men: a cheap low cost interface for mice and keyboards, while also supporting high performance disks. If you want an interface the only does high speed transfers to an expensive device at the other end, you could probably do much better.
The desktop/laptop PC market has always been two separate markets. One it the office, workplace, market. The other is the internet access market.
The standard PC was made for the office market. Both the office productivity market using the standard wordprocessor/spreadsheet/presentation apps, and all the various kinds of design and simulation software used by umpteen varieties of designer.
The standard PC was also sold for the internet access market - mainly web browsing and email, because initially it was the only device that could do it. But it wasn't actually optimised for these uses - is just did them because it was a good general purpose device. You could say that it was mis-sold for these uses: it was over complex for the simple uses people needed. When smartphones and tablets came along, they were actually designed to do the job these users wanted. Naturally they captures the market.
The PC market peaked at about 180 million devices. I reckon that was about 30 million work devices ("Sit forward" devices, as I think of them) and 150 million net access devices ("sit back" devices), The 30 million sit-forward market is still there, and growing at a reasonable rate. The 150 million "sit back" market is evaporating fast as people who want that switch to purpose-built devices.
Who is buying your product? Look at how they are sitting. If they are sitting forward, stay with the PC: you are selling to a steady segment of the market. If they are sitting back (or trying to), jump ship, because that is what your customers are doing.
In this case, I really don't think it is anti-American but anti-GM. There is a very widespread fear of GM. Which, as it happens, I disagree with. But, right or wrong, people are afraid of GM and shouting at their politicians about it.
Maize is the term used in the UK, where corn means, usually, wheat - sometimes barley.
Many dictionaries say that "corn" means the local most common grain crop, and therefore each grain type needs another name for use where it is not the most common.
There was certainly a case of it some years ago in the UK. A spate of a single model (a Ford again, IIRC) bursting into flames while quietly parked at a particular motorway service station. The particular model was a favourite with sales reps, who would drive from London with pedal to the metal, then stop at this particular station for a break. A plastic fuel pipe ran above a bit of the engine which got very hot under this form of heavy usage. with essentially no cool-down mileage after the high speed run. Round about the time the rep was finishing his coffee, the plastic melted and poured fuel onto the overheated engine. Whoof!
So it can happen. Maybe this scenario, or one like it, has replayed.
I have to say that this is hardly new: people have been modelling archaeological reconstructions for quite a few years now. This may be larger than many, but it is hardly
"One day" might be very soon, if leaks from the Trans Pacific Partnership negotiations are correct. I had been, in a vague sort of way, in favour of this. But if the price is extending IP periods, I go the other way.
For individual works. But in context of
Which, incidentally, suggests that corporations are not alive, contradicting the "companies are legal people" mantra used to justify a lot of corporate dubious practice.
Patents last twenty years
Copyrights last about seventy years - now.
Trademarks can last for ever, if maintained.
Relevant differences, I would have thought,
That "Sweden has the highest suicide rates" was true when President Eisenhower quoted it. But that was a long, long time ago, and it hasn't been true for a logn time. Sweden's suicide rate is now around or just below the European average.
And gives 15-20 seconds of agonising pain, as far as can be judged. State of the art 1780 - a cruel time.
Because it would cost quite a lot of money to set up a production line and prove the quality to medical standards, for a market restricted to the US.
