Soldier 2025 is an United States Army research and development project to create an advanced, high-tech combat uniform for infantry soldiers. The features of this outfit include nanotechnology, built-in sensors, and physical augmentations.

Technology embedded in the fabric of the uniform, most likely chemical receptors, would change color autonomously to blend in with the surrounding environment.

The fabric might also be treated with shear thickening fluid, a mix of polyethylene glycol and nanoscale glass particles. This mix would function like chainmail, flexible with low speed motion such as running, but hard and solid against high speed motion such as that of a bullet impact, preventing serious injury or death. The technology has already proven effective when combined with Kevlar armor.

An exoskeletal structure on the legs permits the wearer to carry two to three times their body weight and feel only one time their body weight, increasing effective speed and endurance.

Instead of holding the roll call of states on one night, the Bush campaign arranged for the voting to take place over four nights, so that Bush would eventually build up support throughout the week, culminating with Cheney's home state of Wyoming finally putting him over the top on the final night. There were few defections, despite a large contingent of delegates having been elected to support McCain, who formally released them to Bush.

Half the world's population could face a shortage of clean water by 2080 because of climate change according to Wong Poh Poh, a professor at the National University of Singapore.

A study by Dr Hayley Fowler, of Newcastle University, predicts that severe rain storms - the likes of which currently occur every five to 25 years across the UK - will become more common and more severe in a matter of decades. Consistent with global warming, the team found that as the air becomes warmer and is able to hold more moisture, Britain will get wetter.

O'Neill described solar power satellites that provide unlimited clean energy, making it far easier for humanity to reach and exceed present developed-world living standards. Overpopulation pressures would be relieved as billions of people eventually emigrate to colonies in free space. These colonies would offer an Earth-like environment but with vastly higher productivity for industry and agriculture. These colonies and satellites would be constructed from asteroid or lunar materials launched into the desired orbits cheaply by the mass drivers O'Neill's group developed.

Her cargo from Japan included 9.8 tons of molybdenum, 11 tons of tungsten, 2.2 tons of gold in 146 bars packed in 49 metal boxes, 3 tons of opium and 54 kg of caffeine. The gold was payment for German optical technology. She also carried 14 passengers, primarily Japanese technicians, who were to study German technology in anti-aircraft guns, and engines for torpedo boats.

Nobody ever became a ballplayer by walking after a ball.
You will never become a .300 hitter unless you take the bat off your shoulder.
An outfield who throws in back of a runner is locking the barn after the horse is stolen.
Keep your head up and you may not have to keep it down.
When you start to slide, SLIDE. He who changes his mind may have to change a good leg for a bad one.
Do not alibi on bad hops. Anyone can field the good ones.
Always run them out. You never can tell.
Do not quit.
Try not to find too much fault with the umpires. You cannot expect them to be as perfect as you are.
A pitcher who hasn't control hasn't anything.

Although the mines have long since closed down, the town still sports many large houses and mansions built by the wealthy mine owners. Today, many of the houses are participating locations in the Keweenaw National Historical Park.

The Palestra was a noted hockey arena, built in Laurium in 1904. It is thought to have been the first purpose-built indoor hockey venue in the United States. In 1921, the entire arena was moved to Marquette, Michigan and remained there until it was torn down in 1974.

According to M. King Hubbert's Hubbert peak theory. In 1956, Hubbert estimated that US coal production would peak in about the year 2150.

Hubbert noted that United States coal production grew logarithmically at a steady 6.6% per year from 1850 to 1910. Then the growth leveled off. He concluded that no finite resource could sustain exponential growth. At some point, the rate of production will have to peak and then decline until the resource is exhausted. He theorized that production rate plotted versus time would show a bell-shaped curve, declining as rapidly as it had risen. Hubbert used his observation of the US coal production to predict the behavior of peak oil.

Estill Springs is a town in Tennessee. The population was 2,152 at the 2000 census.

In 1987, national fame of a sort came to the town when a resident noticed what she took to be an image of Jesus appearing on an upright freezer on the porch of her trailer, although other witnesses believed it more closely resembled Willie Nelson. The artifact became known as the "Freezer Jesus" and briefly became a topic of journalism and a tourist attraction.

Norfolk & Western 2156 is the strongest-pulling extant steam locomotive in the world, although it is not operational. Built in 1942 it was retired from regular rail service in July 1959, and today it is at the Museum of Transportation in St. Louis, Missouri, U.S.A.

Although there is some sentiment for restoring 2156 to operational condition, doing so would be a massive undertaking that, even if possible, would probably cost millions of dollars and take years to complete.

Saltville, Virginia's population was 2,204 at the 2000 census.

Saltville was named for the salt marshes in the area. Prior to European settlement, these marshes attracted local wildlife. Excavations have recovered several well preserved skeletons of now extinct species dating back to the last ice age.

During the American Civil War Saltville was one of the Confederacy's main saltworks. The saltworks were considered vital to the Confederate war effort because the salt was used in preserving meat for Confederate soldiers and civilians. As such, the town became a target for Northern forces intent on capturing the saltworks and removing it from Confederate control. On October 2, 1864 the Battle of Saltville was fought here. In the battle Union forces attacked Saltville but were defeated by Confederate troops. Two months later General George Stoneman, a Union cavalry commander, led a second attack on the saltworks, this time the Confederates were defeated and the saltworks were destroyed by Union troops. The loss of Saltville was considered a major blow to the Confederacy's dwindling resources.

Later, in the 1940s the sign was changed to "This is God's Country, Please Don't Drive Through It Like Hell" in order to satisfy those in the town who were displeased with the tone of the old sign. The sign has been in news and print in many magazines, including on the cover of National Geographic, and in the music video of Little Texas' song "God Blessed Texas."

The Nevada class battleships were the United States Navy's first battleship design equipped with triple gun turrets. They had a range of 2,222 miles.

The Nevadas were active in the Atlantic Ocean before and during World War I, deploying to the European war zone in 1918 to help protect Allied supply lines. Their service continued after the "Great War", though by the early 1920s they were the oldest of the main Battle Fleet units.

A possible design flaw in the Nevadas was that they did not have a substantial amount of deck armor. This was due to the prevailing belief (at the time) that the submarine was the greatest threat to battleships. By World War II, however, the greatest threat had become airplanes.

Mortars were designed to fire explosive shells over the walls of the fortification, killing the garrison, forcing the garrison to stay in bombproof shelters, preventing the garrison from serving their guns and repairing damage caused by the bombardment. Mortars could also destroy structures inside the fortification such as barracks and kitchens. Heavier mortar shells could penetrate magazines and many bombproof shelters.

A $22.43 sack of burgers turned into a huge pain in the a$$ when Burger King accidentally debited $2,243 from Bryan Sampson's bank account, leaving him overdrawn and unable to use his debit card lest the overdraft charges keep piling up. Burger King said the manager wasn't available to correct the mistake because it was a holiday weekend... but the local media was happy to answer the phone.

From KTVB:
"Bryan Sampson's wife picked up food for the family Saturday - totaling $22.43. But a whopper of a mistake left the couple's account overdrawn. A clerk at the Burger King charged them $2,243.00 - with the decimal point in the wrong spot!

Bryan said he didn't notice the charge until Sunday - but now the mistake is causing big trouble for the family's finances.

"My bank account now is overdrawn $473, so anything that might come through at midnight is gonna be charged a $35 fee," Sampson said. "I know there's 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 charges they're gonna charge me for at $35 bucks a pop."

Sampson said the assistant manager told him they had cancelled the transaction instead of crediting his account - and that the store manager would not be in until Tuesday - after the President's Day holiday to correct the mistake.

Horse Cave, Kentucky had a population of 2,252 at the 2000 census.

The town's drinking water was taken from the river in the cave. Unfortunately, due to an incomplete understanding of the underground water flow in the region, sewage seeped into the cave, and hence into the drinking water, and the cave became severely polluted. The outcome was that the cave was shut down for tours for over 50 years. During the 1960s, the stench was so bad that pedestrians would cross to the other side of Main Street, rather than walk near the cave's opening. Birds flying over the cave's opening could be seen struggling to breathe, falling from the sky into the opening of the cave. Fortunately, efforts made to prevent polluting ground water in the region, coupled with the natural regenerative effects of the running water, have largely restored the cave to a pristine condition. Tours have resumed once more, the outcome of a successful anti-pollution effort by various levels of government.

Britain was at war with France. To impede American trade with France, it imposed a series of restrictions that the U.S. contested as illegal under international law. The Americans declared war on Britain on June 18, 1812 for a combination of reasons: outrage at the impressment of thousands of American sailors into the Royal Navy, frustration at British restraints on neutral trade, and anger at British military support for Native Americans defending their tribal lands from encroaching American settlers.

The hybrid is said to give approximately 75% greater efficiency, with about 33 to 36 mpg-U.S. in city traffic, (and has demonstrated it can travel 400–500 miles on a single 16.5-U.S.-gallon tank of gasoline in city driving), and 29 to 31 mpg-U.S. on the highway. Unlike conventional vehicles, hybrids often achieve better figures in the city because they do not waste power idling and can recover some power when stopping (by using regenerative braking) that would be wasted on a conventional vehicle.

The Soviet forces had four times as many soldiers as the Finns, 30 times as many aircraft and 218 times as many tanks.However, the Red Army had recently been subjected to a drastic purge in 1937 that crippled it, reducing its morale and efficiency shortly before the outbreak of hostilities. With up to 50% of army officers executed, including the vast majority of those of the highest rank, the Red Army in 1939 had many inexperienced senior officers. Due to a combination of these factors, and an extremely high commitment and morale in the Finnish forces, the Finns were able to resist the invasion of their country with great success and for far longer than the Soviets had expected.

USS Princess Matoika (ID-2290) was a transport ship for the United States Navy during World War I. She carried over 50,000 U.S. troops to and from France in U.S. Navy service from 1918 to 1919.

In July 1920, she was a last-minute substitute to carry a large portion of the United States team to the 1920 Summer Olympics in Antwerp. From the perspective of the Olympic team, the trip was disastrous and a majority of the team members published a list of grievances and demands of the American Olympic Committee in an action known today as the Mutiny of the Matoika.
