No. Most of the trade was in tulip futures rather than actual tulip bulbs.
I have in my car. It has a stop-start engine so turns itself off completely when I stop at traffic lights etc, and also regenerative brakes. If I am going down a hill slowly in stop-start traffic, I sometimes don't bother to put the engine back on, and just let gravity take me down the hill. The brakes become much harder to operate as soon as the engine goes off, because the regenerative breaking doesn't work.
On my VW Up, if I push the break pedal a little bit, it activates the regenerative breaking system. If I push it down really hard, it activates the manual hydraulic break pads.
Of course. That's why the requirement for passports was introduced. Previously they had to sit in quarentine for about 6 months before being allowed into the country.
Animals do need to have passports to be allowed into the country. In that respect, it is a passport by the common definition. It also records its medial history, and depending on the type of animal, the passport must show that it has been inspected by a vet a certain number of days before it arrives at the border and in some cases has received certain types of medication.
Shareholders pay death duties on the value of their shares when they die, so they get the money that way.
You may laugh, but recently in the UK, a couple of cows were put down because they didn't have passports.
A Ford Transit would be better for that sort of thing.
A lot of these studies come from accounts where people do not care if someone else knows the password, because the password doesn't protect anything of use to the subscriber. For accounts like that, my password is the same as my username, and it is linked to a spamtrap email account that doesn't get used for anything else. I know it is insecure, but I don't care.
Yes they do, but I'm not sure what the relevance is.
This company is asking the government, in the form of the courts, to stop someone from saying bad things about them. If the court were to grant this request, it would violate the 1st amendment, therefore it can't grant this request.
In the UK, it is illegal for recruiters to charge employees for finding work, so they always get paid by the company doing the hiring.
I've had headhunters contact me with jobs. When I say that I don't meet the list of requirements in the job spec, they tell me that nobody else out there does either, but I'm close enough.
If it can go from $1 to $1000 in the space of a year, it can go from $10,000 to $0 in the space of a few miliseconds.
There are 4 countries in the world where private banks still issue banknotes - Scotland, Northern Ireland, Hong Kong and Macau. But only government approved banks have a licence to print money, and they are required to deposit funds with the central bank to cover the notes they have issued.
 None of them are independent countries, and only Scotland is technically a country, but they all have their own parliaments and legal systems.
