Like the statues on Easter Island, the curse of the mummy in Egypt, UFOs, and the Loch Ness Monster, the Bermuda Triangle has become a fascinating and enduring legend. What exactly takes place in the mysterious zone known also as the Devil's Triangle, which spans Miami, Bermuda, and San Juan, Puerto ico, to cause the death and disappearance of dozens or more ships, planes, and their crews? Apparently, large numbers of ships, aircraft, and people have suddenly and inexplicably disappeared in this nebulous zone. The prevalence of inexplicable phenomena, and the types of experiences survivors of the Bermuda Triangle have had, had led to a number of theories postulating why these events take place. Many of those theories are based in empirical science, including geophysics. Other theories are based in paranormal and parapsychological paradigms, which are far more captivating. These paranormal explanations have fueled a litany of books,…… [Read More]
There were eleven men on board both planes. The weather was clear and the planes radioed their position around noon; they said they were 800 miles northeast of Miami and 300 miles west of Bermuda, according to Gaddis' article. These were brand new planes, in contact with each other but not flying close to one another. The KC-135s disappeared without a trace.
An "extensive search was launched... [and] vessels churned the surface of the sea." The next day, August 29, 1963, some "debris" was seen floating on the water 260 miles southwest of Bermuda, but no survivors or bodies were discovered, ever. Two days after the disappearance more debris was discovered, but that debris was 160 miles from the first discovery. How could the debris in both places be from the same two planes?
The list of incidents is long. Fifty more could be reviewed in this paper, but of…… [Read More]
It is known as The Bermuda Triangle, The Devil's Triangle, and some call it the Hoodoo Sea, but whichever name you choose, the Triangle remains a mysterious triangle of ocean that has seen the disappearance of numerous unexplained losses of shops, small boats, and aircraft. This triangle encompasses an area of ocean located off the southeastern Atlantic coast of Florida. The apexes of the triangle are pinpointed to be Bermuda, Miami, Fla., and San Juan, Puerto Rico (Navy Historical Center 2001). hile the U.S. Board of Geographic Names does not recognize the Bermuda Triangle as an official name or keep an official file on the triangular area, the name Bermuda Triangle was established with a 1952 article that appeared in Fate magazine (Loxton 2003) and it continues to remain unexplained how disappearances have occurred over time.
Some scientists believe that violent, unexpected storms or downward air currents destroyed…… [Read More]
Because the home country is not required to reimburse foreign depositors for losses, there is no corresponding financial penalty for lax supervision; there is, though, a benefit to the country with lenient regulatory policies because of increased revenues generated and the employment opportunities these services provide (Edwards 1999). Furthermore, banks seeking to conduct multinational business are attracted to countries where incorporation laws and the regulatory framework offer less regulatory oversight (Edwards 1999). The quid pro quo nature of offshore financial services is clearly indicated by Edwards's observation that, "Multinational banks provide the offshore financial centre with increased tax revenue and employment for its citizens. Because the benefits outweigh the costs, offshore financial centres have a powerful incentive to maintain lenient regulatory policies. As a result, multinational banks incorporated in an offshore financial center successfully avoid supervision by an effective home country regulator" (1999, p. 1267). Given the scope of the…… [Read More]
Analysis of the data
Porter's discussion of strategies fails capture the highly specific responses needed from home base countries' multinationals to expand into other nations with cultures highly dissimilar to ones' own. In the Competitive Advantage of Nations, Porter assumes a cultural homogeneity and "likeness" and has never published research illustrating a western multinational or for that matter home base country moving into foreign nations. The research Porter completed with the Japanese Ministry of International Trade highlights the insularity and importance of trust through relationships.
The growth of westernized home base industries into China is significantly more complex than Porter theorizes through the diamond or other analytical constructs as defined in Competitive Advantage of Nations. For example, Chinese consumers prove extremely loyal to domestic products and brands, partially because so few Western items existed in the market until the 1990s.

Otherwise more data and creative solutions would be required in order to get some sense of how to maintain eel populations. The notion of doing a population survey in the Sargasso Sea is tempting, although it is difficult to see how this would be accomplished. Perhaps serious monitoring efforts on the return of the juveniles -- taking the place of harvesting of these juveniles -- could give some sense of the abundance of the species on a yearly basis. Otherwise a fishing ban or limit on the adult eel could be enacted if the numbers are as seriously depleted as is feared. But obviously the unusual life cycle makes the commercial farming of eels extremely difficult, as they do not mate in captivity. If this could somehow be accomplished, it would be a useful way to raise the numbers of the species.

Munich is famous for many tourist attractions. In the center of the city is the Marienplatz - a large open square with the Old and the New Town Hall. Structures from demolished medieval fortification have survived to this day, including three gates. There are also a number of remarkable churces - the Peterskirche, close to Marienplatz, the gothic hall-church Heiliggeistkirche (The Church of the Holy Ghost), the Frauenkirche ("Dom zu unserer Lieben Frau" - Cathedral of Our Lady), which is the most famous building in the city center or Michaelskirche, the largest enaissance church (Cityguide).
The palaces are another feature of the old city. The Alte Hof, a medieval castle and first residence of the Wittelsbach dukes in Munich can be seen in the inner city. The large esidenz palace is one of Europe's most significant museums of interior decoration. The international renown Nationaltheater is another attraction. As far as…… [Read More]

Wars of Principle in the Falklands and Malvinas
Although the age of imperialism has slowly, but inexorably, been consigned to history books, with the great ritish, Spanish and Portuguese empires that once dominated the globe now largely defunct after the revolutionary spirit swept through colonies from America to Argentina, vestiges of this age-old system still remain to this day. Despite withdrawing from the vast majority of its former colonies after successful campaigns for independence were waged, the United Kingdom has strived to maintain a semblance of its former power by maintaining control over small areas of land within the nations it previously ruled over. Hong Kong in China, Gibraltar in the Iberian Peninsula, and a half dozen Caribbean islands from ermuda to Turks and Caicos, the custom of leaving behind ritish territories in the wake of widespread independence movements was instituted to ensure that the United Kingdom's dogged pursuit of…… [Read More]
How many paces is the treasure from the palm tree?
Here's the catch! When you went to dig the treasure, it wasn't there. What happened? Where is the treasure?
In the triangle ABC, BC can be found as:
DC can be found from triangle BCD:

Smith notes that it may be impossible to unequivocally prove something with one hundred percent accuracy; rather, scientists seek probability.
The term theory is often misconstrued: Smith states that "theories always explain facts." Moreover, there is no clear demarcation between a theory and a hypothesis. Theories are basically broad hypotheses. Laws, on the other hand, are more restrictive and are often derived from theories. The practice of science entails experimentation as well as presentation to the scientific community. When the research is presented to other scientists, it is usually done so through peer-reviewed journals. Often other scientists will critique and critically evaluate the scientific experiment and attempt to replicate it. When the experiment has been replicated the hypothesis may become part of the canon of established science and from there, common knowledge.
Because science can only deal with what is observable and measurable, it can not apply to philosophy, aesthetics,…… [Read More]
