It's not that hard. The only difference being that the Indian system uses 10^ odd numbers, more often primes, as a reference.
And thus : 10^0,1,2,3,5,7 all have names - 10^5 being a lakh and 10^7 being a crore. A complete list is rather interesting, showing that the system predates Western mathematical formulations: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_large_numbers and having pecularities like bodhisattva ( or ) —10^37218383881977644441306597687849648128.
You gotta ask...why 10^37218383881977644441306597687849648128?!

That's Francis Crick's interpretation of it. The most popular usage of the term is, however, this : Biémont, Christian; Vieira, C (2006). "Genetics: Junk DNA as an evolutionary force". Nature 443 (7111): 521–4
It's a frozen accident during early attempts to clone genes. When you were cloning genes, you got lots and lots of other non-coding regions into your test-tubes and bacteria that you weren't interested in. Hence , it was called 'junk DNA'. Hence, you know that 'junk DNA' that you get when you try to clone something? Most of the genome is made of that stuff.
It was by no means a statement on the importance of that DNA.

Seriously, are you trolling or simply do not understand that this IS scientific information about Martian terrain, geology, soil, tectonics, atmosphere etc. With respect to earth, it tells us a lot about the Goldilocks zone's extent. Mainly because the other 2 terrestrial planets - Mercury and Venus don't seem to have terrain like the earth.
Do you think there is just one kind of dusty, rocky desert?
Go to the Atacama desert, and then to the Gobi desert, and to the Sahara. Tell me if you think they are the same.
Obviously this must mean that Martian rocks and Earth rocks share a common ancestor!
Yes. It does. That common ancestor is called the protoplanetary disc which led to the formation of the inner solar system.
Now go troll somewhere else.
Since I use Windows and Linux, I prefer Deluge.
Exactly. The very day they made a bog box appear in the UI advertising their premium 'Plus' version, I guessed the route it was going and ditched it for : Deluge.
They're discouraging the iPhone?
I'd have never thought corporate greed for profit could actually do a good thing in the long run. Darn it, I sound like a capitalism-apologist right there.
you're going to be staffing the call centers with people who have just a high school education, then you might as well do that in the United States
Employee salary. Next!
Money Money Money!
Must be funny!

Biologists do not see DNA as merely a storage medium. This might be an issue of semantics, but when biologists say "DNA" , they mean the molecule. Just plain DNA.
For it's 'non-storage-only' functions, DNA needs a bunch of proteins and RNA molecules. This entire functional and dynamic assemblage is referred to as 'chromatin'. This is why a bunch of other terms exist - exon, intron, promoter, enhancer, gene, telomere, tandem repeats, restriction site, nucleosome etc. Clearly, these are made up of DNA, but encode functions that are referred to by different names.
Packaging can be weird to understand. Some of the simplest-looking boxes are often hard to manufacture and use to package a product on a assembly line.
Remember that customer experience while unpacking is perhaps the most transient, short-lived event in the life of a product. Other factors such as safety while transport, shelf-appearance and the quality of the product itself is far far more important. And lets not get started about environmental costs of packaging.
But something tells me people who want a Nexus get that the packaging is irrelevant enough as to be worthless within 2 minutes of the customer having finished it. Unboxing is where the function of packaging finishes.
