mind you, it was going downhill all the way.
Kowtow is a Chinese word actually. Formally it's kneeling and bowing your head to touch the floor three times.
I think you'll find the word currently used in English comes from Japanese (kohtoh - where the "o" is long as in "or" and the "h" is not pronounced). In Japanese it means to lower one's head (in reverence to a superior or higher ranked person) and from what I can recall, came into the English language during WW2, when POWs were forced to lower their heads to Japanese POW guards and commanders. In the same way, the word "hocho" comes from Japanese as well (hancho - where the "o" is again made long), and means the head of a unit or group (han). Unit leaders or guard leaders among both Japanese army and POWs where given this designation. Identically, the word "tenko" (the "o" is short) means "roll call" or "line call" and POWs were expected to line up and number off in the morning, before meals or whenever they were told to, in order to ensure that they were all there. It was also the name of a popular Australian soap about female POWs in WW2.
Toyota? Or Toshiba?
Toshiba, as in TFA. The title is just wishful thinking to get this in the Prius.
Seriously, one of the main issues (other than price) keeping people from buying electric or hybrid vehicles is the time it takes to recharge, which doesn't make them a viable option for long (read: hundreds of kilometres in one go) trips.
I thought that everyone started out with pretty much zero gut bacteria and acquire them based on what they eat. (And sometimes people lose all their gut bacteria from various medical treatments and have to work to restore them.) So the japanese end up with the bacteria/enzymes do digest sushi because... they eat a lot of sushi. Presumably anyone else could develop a colony of such bacteria/enzymes by also eating a lot of sushi? That would mean the division isn't whether you're Japanese or American or something else. It's just whether or not you eat a lot of sushi.
I doubt it really has that much to do with eating sushi per se. I have been living in Japan for over 12 years, and I have no problem digesting any form of seaweed. It's not just used in sushi, but also on 'onigiri' rice balls, in miso soup, in side dishes etc. It is true that most people don't each sushi all the time; maybe we go to a cheap sushi place once in a while, but that's about it for most people. But Japanese people love eating seaweed, and there are many other ways to ingest it. I think the original researchers should have also tested foreigners living in Japan for long periods of time, and Japanese people brought up in the US or else living there for a long time, to see just how the enzymes in the gut change with diet. I think they'd find that people like me have more enzymes than they expected.
pilots in the 60 who spoke quietly about these. Of course, scientists said that no such thing exists and as such, most pilots kept real quiet about it. Only at wild 60's parties would I hear some of these guys talking about it.
Maybe an even larger, as yet undiscovered type of these ""gigantic jets" can be used to explain the images taken from the shuttle, Mir space station etc. orbiting earth that clearly show something (an object) leaving the earth's atmosphere, and which have for a long time - at least in particular circles - been used to 'prove' the existence of UFOs on earth. If the jets in the article can reach 80km, could it not be possible that some as yet undiscovered phenomena could reach even higher, with enough power to break through the ionosphere into outer space?
