Do the winners of an Olympic event get a cash prize along with a medal?

The International Olympic Committee does not award cash prizes to the winners. Many countries, however, do offer cash prizes and other incentives to medalists.

In 2012, American competitors who won Olympic medals were rewarded in cash by the US Olympic Committee. Gold medal winners received $25,000, Silver medal winners received $15,000, and Bronze medal winners received $10,000.

However, the real money is earned through commercial endorsements. Some Olympians get paid a performance bonus from sponsors for winning a medal and may sign commercial endorsements that could wind up paying them millions.

How do you restring a compound bow?

To re-string a compound bow, you must first get the bow limbs to bend. The easiest way (and the safest) is to place the bow, with the string above the bow (it will look like a smile) in what is called a "bow press". Once the bow is in the press, it is pushed down to bend the limbs ("compressed"), causing the string to go slack; the string is now removed from the cams and the new string is installed. De-compress the bow and remove it from the press.

The bow press can be somewhat expensive to purchase, so it may be best to take the bow to an archery shop and have the string replaced there. Due to the amount of pressure required to bend the bow's limbs, as well as the need to keep them bent while changing the string, attempting to restring a compound bow without the proper equipment is definitely not recommended.

Why was Voice Recognition Software invented?

The reasons are many; the ones I see more important are:

1. automated phone services (understanding words, and then their meaning, so to automate phone redirection and services)

2. support to disabled persons (so they can write text on a computer without typing)

3. last but not least, CIA/NSA need to automate the transcription of voice calls, and the detection of possible dangerous voice call speeches.

What is the alternative name for the bullseye on an archery target?

In some areas the "bullseye" is also known as the "center bull" or the "bull"; it is currently unknown exactly where the term originated.

It is also often referred to as the "X" and many scoring systems will keep track of the number of X's shot.

According to some sources, the centre of an archery target is also called the 'Gold'; the term apparently has origins with Henry VIII ("The Field of the Cloth of Gold", 1520 A.D.), although no documentation seems to exist which can be used to verify this claim. A "bullseye" is also used in reference to the game of darts. The"X" is known as the "Inner 10" and, as mentioned above, it is used in the scoring system. In certain forms of indoor archery, "The Inner 10 Ring" is largely used with Compound bows; compound bow users have to hit that to score 10; the outer 10 is for all other types of bow.
