Cuban missile crisis The Cuban missile crisis — known as the October Crisis or The Missile Scare (Spanish: Crisis de octubre) in Cuba and the Caribbean Crisis (Russian: Карибский кризис, tr. Karibskiy krizis) in the former USSR — was a 13-day confrontation in October 1962 between the Soviet Union and Cuba on one side and the United States on the other side. The crisis is generally regarded as the moment in which the Cold War came closest to turning into a nuclear conflict[1] and is also the first documented instance of mutual assured destruction (MAD) being discussed as a determining factor in a major international arms agreement.[2][3] After the US had placed nuclear missiles in Turkey and Italy, aimed at Moscow, and the failed US attempt to overthrow the Cuban regime, in May 1962 Nikita Khrushchev proposed the idea of placing Soviet nuclear missiles in Cuba to deter any future invasion attempt. Earlier actions by the United States Balance of power Soviet deployment of missiles in Cuba (Operation Anadyr)

Which 800 number service is the best option for my small business? Image source: You might think that ‘dialing 1-800′ is only for big businesses as seen on TV, but in fact it’s really pretty simple and inexpensive to set one up for your own small business. Adding a boost of professionalism, an 800 number is another helpful internet tool that will increase your customers’ confidence and trust in your company, which will in turn increase sales and the number of returning customers. With 800 services, you can generally forward the calls to one or more other numbers, like your cell phone or Skype, and you also get several extension numbers for other employees and departments, unique greetings, and voicemail options. Now, there are several different companies out there to choose from which supply 800 numbers and services, but I’m going to focus on just four. I’m going to break this up into comparisons of different features, instead of just going company by company. Image source: Cost/Plans Image source: Extension Numbers

Edwardian era The Edwardian era or Edwardian period in the United Kingdom is the period covering the reign of King Edward VII, 1901 to 1910, and is sometimes extended beyond Edward's death to include years leading up to World War I. The death of Queen Victoria in January 1901 and the succession of her son Edward marked the end of the Victorian era. While Victoria had shunned society, Edward was the leader of a fashionable elite that set a style influenced by the art and fashions of Continental Europe—perhaps because of the King's fondness for travel. The Edwardian period is frequently extended beyond Edward's death in 1910 to include the years up to the sinking of the RMS Titanic in 1912, the start of World War I in 1914, the end of hostilities with Germany in 1918, or the signing of the Treaty of Versailles in 1919. Economy[edit] The Edwardian era stands out as a time of peace and plenty. Class and society[edit] The Edwardian era was a period during which the British class system was very rigid. [edit]
