Banana Four varieties of banana fruit Worldwide, there is no sharp distinction between "bananas" and "plantains". Especially in the Americas and Europe, "banana" usually refers to soft, sweet, dessert bananas, particularly those of the Cavendish group, which are the main exports from banana-growing countries. By contrast, Musa cultivars with firmer, starchier fruit are called "plantains". In other regions, such as Southeast Asia, many more kinds of banana are grown and eaten, so the simple two-fold distinction is not useful and is not made in local languages. The term "banana" is also used as the common name for the plants which produce the fruit.[1] This can extend to other members of the genus Musa like the scarlet banana (Musa coccinea), pink banana (Musa velutina) and the Fe'i bananas. Description A banana corm, about 25 cm (10 in) across The female flowers (which can develop into fruit) have petals and other flower parts at the tip of the ovary (the ovary is "inferior").

ThinkQuest Internet en France Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. En France, Internet est utilisé par le grand public depuis 1994, mais n'a réellement connu un essor qu'à partir du milieu des années 2000. Depuis 2010, l'on compte 20 millions d'abonnés au réseau (42,3 millions d'internautes), pour 65 millions d'habitants, dont 288 000 lignes à la fibre optique actives[1]. Accès à Internet en France[modifier | modifier le code] Tableau comparatif[modifier | modifier le code] Répartition du nombre d'accès Internet à bas, haut et très haut débit sur les réseaux fixes[2] : Les débuts[modifier | modifier le code] Accessible initialement à un nombre réduit d'utilisateurs dans un petit nombre d'entreprises et d'Universités, l'utilisation de l'Internet par le grand public n'a commencé qu'à partir de 1994, et s'est vraiment démocratisé au début du siècle par l'apparition de l'ADSL. Le premier véritable fournisseur d'accès grand public fut WorldNet qui ouvrit ses portes en février 1994 lors du Computer Associates Expo.

Godwin's law Mike Godwin (2010) Godwin's law (or Godwin's Rule of Nazi Analogies)[1][2] is an Internet adage asserting that "As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches 1" [2][3]—​ that is, if an online discussion (regardless of topic or scope) goes on long enough, sooner or later someone will compare someone or something to Hitler or Nazism. Promulgated by American attorney and author Mike Godwin in 1990,[2] Godwin's Law originally referred, specifically, to Usenet newsgroup discussions.[4] It is now applied to any threaded online discussion, such as Internet forums, chat rooms and blog comment threads, as well as to speeches, articles and other rhetoric.[5][6] In 2012, "Godwin's Law" became an entry in the third edition of the Oxford English Dictionary.[7] Corollaries and usage[edit] History[edit] Godwin has stated that he introduced Godwin's law in 1990 as an experiment in memetics.[2] See also[edit] Notes[edit] Further reading[edit]

The WWW Virtual Library Five ed-tech stories to watch for 2010 These developments could affect school technology in 2010 and beyond From staff and wire reports Read more by staff and wire services reports Game-changing technologies are on the way in 2010. Recently, we posted a look back at the 10 most significant education technology stories of 2009 , as chosen by our editors. The reauthorization of NCLB is three years overdue, but if the recent health-care debate is any indication, it could be a while yet before lawmakers overcome the gridlock on Capitol Hill to pass a new federal education law. Eight years after NCLB was enacted, U.S. schools have made some progress in closing achievement gaps, but much work remains to be done. The Obama administration has articulated four key priorities in its efforts to reform the nation’s schools: rewarding effective teaching, improving academic standards, using data to drive instruction, and transforming underperforming high schools.

Gutenberg–Richter law Gutenberg–Richter law for b = 1 In seismology, the Gutenberg–Richter law[1] (GR law) expresses the relationship between the magnitude and total number of earthquakes in any given region and time period of at least that magnitude. or Where: is the number of events having a magnitude and are constants The relationship was first proposed by Charles Francis Richter and Beno Gutenberg. GR law plotted for various b-values The constant b is typically equal to 1.0 in seismically active regions. There is debate concerning the interpretation of some observed spatial and temporal variations of b-values. Roll-off compared to ideal GR law with b=1 There is a tendency for the b-value to decrease for smaller magnitude events. The a-value is of less scientific interest and simply indicates the total seismicity rate of the region. where, the total number of events. Modern attempts to understand the law involve theories of self-organized criticality or self similarity. References[edit] Bibliography[edit]
