However, these lists are not passenger manifests, but lists of victims, and hence include an implicit rationale for excluding alleged hijackers. In a different part of the website not directly referenced by the above-mentioned flight victims pages -- that entitled "September 11: A Memorial" -- CNN describes its criteria for including persons in its memorial in a pop-up window labeled "About this site": CONFIRMED DEAD Includes victims who have been confirmed dead by a coroner's office or the Defense Department.

It also includes those a court has declared legally dead, even if no body has been recovered. Moussaoui Trial Exhibits Faxes of Alleged Flight Manifests. Youtube.

With iPhones and iPads snapping 8-megapixel images and HD video like it’s going out of style, storage can quickly become an issue—especially as Apple has kept the entry-level models at 16GB even while increasing storage for the higher-end versions. This can be an especially sticky problem while traveling, and not just because you take more photos and video clips. Maybe you can’t upload your images to cloud storage without a data connection, maybe you’re about to run up against your data plan’s ceiling, maybe hotel Wi-Fi costs too much and performs terribly, and maybe you didn’t bring your laptop to offload images to its hard drive.

SanDisk’s iXpand Flash Drive has you covered. iXpand is a small, portable flash drive with both USB and Lightning connectors. Its companion iOS app lets you back up videos and photos from your Photos app, so you can delete them and free up space to shoot more. It comes with 16GB of storage for $60, 32GB for $80, and 64GB for $120. Traveling light Carry on.

Why is english and not german is spoken in america. German Misnomers, Myths and Mistakes. Sometimes we think we know something when we don't. Unfortunately, falling for misinformation and myths is not limited to idiots or the uneducated. In fact it is often the educated, smart know-it-all who falls victim to the Germanic urban legends and falsehoods we expose here.

Sometimes, as in the case of our latest myth, a bit of WWI military history, the truth or falseness of a legend may be difficult to pin down. Often we believe these tall tales and myths simply because they are plausible and we WANT to believe them. A good example is the hard-to-kill-off “fact” that German lost out to English as the official language of the U.S. by just one vote. Another such mythical fact is one that I fell for myself until a better-informed reader corrected me. Some German falsehoods fall into the category of harmless and often funny trivia, but they're still wrong, and therefore shouldn't be perpetuated. Other German myths are more serious—even insidious.

Foto © Hyde Flippo It is a story that Germans, German teachers and many other people like to tell. But is it true? At first glance it may sound plausible. It is likely that the myth of German as the official language of the US first arose in the 1930s, but it dates back to the country's earliest history and another similar story.

Ipad air mini 3 review. Ipad air 3 review. Words in English :: History - CometBird. A Brief History of English, with Chronologyby Suzanne Kemmer © 2001-2005 Pre-English | Old English | Middle English | Modern English The language we call English was first brought to the north sea coasts of England in the 5th and 6th centuries A.D., by seafaring people from Denmark and the northwestern coasts of present-day Germany and the Netherlands. These immigrants spoke a cluster of related dialects falling within the Germanic branch of the Indo-European language family.

Their language began to develop its own distinctive features in isolation from the continental Germanic languages, and by 600 A.D. had developed into what we call Old English or Anglo-Saxon, covering the territory of most of modern England. New waves of Germanic invaders and settlers came from Norway and Denmark starting in the late 8th century.

The more violent of these were known as Vikings, sea-faring plunderers who retained their ancient pagan gods and attacked settlements and churches for gold and silver. 11 technologies Apple has killed. No, Apple's iPhone 6 Plus isn't too big. Over the weekend I finally got my hands on the giant new Apple iPhone 6 Plus. As promised, I plan to make the iPhone 6 Plus my everyday phone, and see for myself if it can effectively take the place of my phone and my tablet. See also: iOS 8 tips and tricks you need to know Fully determining how well that experiment works, however, will take some time. Only weeks and months of actual use will reveal whether the Apple’s phablet (though the company is loathe to call it that) is big and powerful enough to comfortably replace a full-sized iPad Air.

On the other hand, I’m pretty confident that the iPhone 6 Plus is plenty capable of doing all the things my iPhone 5 did, as long as I can manage to fit it into my pocket and bring it along with me most everywhere I go.

Back in August, just before Apple announced its latest smartphones, I vowed that if the company came out with an “iPhablet,” I’d ditch my tablets and try to live and work exclusively with a giant smartphone and a laptop. See also: If Apple releases an iPhablet, I'm giving away my iPad Well, as everyone knows, Apple’s iPhone 6 Plus—with its giant 5.5-inch screen—is pretty much the iPhablet we all expected, albeit with a slight less silly name.

Now that I’ve been living with my iPhone 6 Plus for a while, I’m back to report on just how well the iPhone 6 Plus does at replacing a tablet. Smaller tablets are dead, dead, dead The answer, I’m afraid, is a bit more complicated than I hoped. On the simple side, it’s immediately clear that the phablet phorm phactor obviates any need—or even any real desire, apart from maybe saving a few bucks if you don’t need a phone—for smaller tablets like the iPad Mini or its Android-powered competitors.

The Soviet leadership's attitude toward the pioneering cosmonauts and engineers as well as the facilities and the equipment was that everything was expendable in the all out effort to stay ahead of the Americans. As an example, revealed state archives indicate that in October 1960, a huge new booster rocket malfunctioned on the launch pad. Instead of taking safety precautions, the Kremlin ordered the launch director and engineers to fix the problem immediately and get the rocket launched that day.

The launch director and over 165 men were inspecting the rocket when it suddenly blew up in a huge ball of fire instantly killing everyone nearby. Rumors persist that this was actually an early manned launch attempt with a cosmonaut on board. Amazingly, this historic tragedy was never officially confirmed by the Soviet government.

The early American effort in space, however, proved disastrous at nearly every turn. Watch the full documentary now - Come scaricare i giornali su ipad.

Words in English public websiteLing/Engl 215 course informationRice UniversityProf. S. Kemmer Major Periods of Borrowing in the History of English Loanwords are words adopted by the speakers of one language from a different language (the source language).

A loanword can also be called a borrowing. The abstract noun borrowing refers to the process of speakers adopting words from a source language into their native language. "Loan" and "borrowing" are of course metaphors, because there is no literal lending process. Borrowing is a consequence of cultural contact between two language communities. The actual process of borrowing is complex and involves many usage events (i.e. instances of use of the new word). Those who first use the new word might use it at first only with speakers of the source language who know the word, but at some point they come to use the word with those to whom the word was not previously known.

'Iran attack on secret US agenda' Behind-the-scene efforts by the US indicate that Washington believes that the so-called threat of a nuclear Iran will only be eliminated through a war, a political expert tells Press TV. "Clearly, sanctions are currently the only available tool in the hands of Washington but behind-the-scene efforts are being made to prove that sanctions cannot mollify the threat in the long run and that the threat of the so-called nuclear Iran will only be eliminated through a war thus justified thanks to the sinister powers long at work," Middle East expert Ismail Salami wrote in an article in Press TV.

He further explained that the White House has created an atmosphere that Iran is a global threat even without nuclear arms program. To Western countries, "Iran is essentially seen as a threat with or without a nuclear weapons program as they have been mainstreamed into this ill manner of thinking," Salami said.
