What does hypocaust mean?

A hypocaust (Latin: hypocaustum) is a system of central heating in a building that produces and circulates hot air below the floor of a room, and may also warm the walls with a series of pipes through which the hot air passes. This air can warm the upper floors as well.[1] The word derives from the Ancient Greek hypo meaning "under" and caust-, meaning "burnt" (as in caustic). The earliest reference to such a system suggests that the temple of Ephesus in 350 BC was heated in this manner,[2] although Vitruvius attributes its invention to Sergius Orata in c. 80 BC.[3] Its invention improved the hygiene and living conditions of citizens, and was a forerunner of modern central heating.

Where is the world's largest corn silo located?

A "silo" is normally used for the storage of fodder such as corn silage or haylage. However, if you meant the largest grain bin, the largest one I know of is in Arthur, Iowa, USA. It has a diameter of 135 feet, a peak height of 131 feet, and holds over 1.2 million bushels of grain corn. See the related link below.

What electrical converter do you need for Mexico?

Most places in Mexico adhere to the NEMA 1-15 (2 flat pins) standard. Some others use the American-adopted NEMA 5-15, which includes the third, ground pin. If you are from the U.S. you shouldn't have any trouble to plug your appliances/electronics, but in case your appliance has three pins, you should bring a converter just to be on the safe side.

If you have the European Standard or any other type of connector, you should buy a power converter, as the power grid uses a 110-120 Volt and most European appliances would not charge or work properly.

Definition of incentive and adhoc tour groups?


An "adhoc tour group" (also called "independent") describes people who end up traveling with each other by accident just because they wanted to see a particular tourist destination and they all happened to be going that way. They don't know each other when they board the plane.

An "incentive tour group" on the other handle, describes people who have an incentive (or reason) not just to travel, but to travel with each other. A business team who are going to a conference - a church group visiting Israel - a group of scientists attending a colloqium. These people do know each other before they start the trip.

At least - that's what I've found so far!

Why do houses in hot places have thick walls?

for mud huts -- the sun heat penetrates thin walls-- thicker walls keep it cooler inside.


Before heat from the outside can work its way to the inside of a thick wall, the temperature drops on the outside and the direction of heat transfer reverses. If the wall is thick enough the interior temperature will remain constant and cool on a hot day without using any energy.

When was the first day of spring 2009?

Spring comes in between the 19th to the 23rd of March and at different times. It changes on a yearly basis because the first official day of spring is the (Spring) Vernal Equinox. This is when the sun is directly above the equator. It rises due East and sets due West and does not do so on the exact same day every year, since the calendar is not exactly 365 precise days every single year.

In 2009, spring arrived on March 20; the sun was above the equator, and crossed to the northern hemisphere at approximately 11:47p.m.

The first day of spring in the Northern Hemisphere this year (2009) was March 20. The equinox was at 5:48 GMT. In general, the four seasons correspond to the relative position of the sun to the earth. Meteorological determination of spring is calculated according to when the sun passes through the equatorial plane. When going from winter to spring, the sun is moving north; as soon as the sun crosses the equator, we call it spring. == == The above applies to places north of the equator.

"Spring", a time of melting and new growth, occurs about September-November in places south of the equator, e.g., Australia, New Zealand, Africa, Brazil...).

The official date of spring south of the equator (corresponding to the first official day of fall in places north of the equator) would be around September 20/21, depending on when the sun crosses the equator. Countries such as Australia and New Zealand, however, designate the first day of September as the official first day of spring.

Can you carry plants on an airplane?

Depends on your destination and the plant(s).

Plant materials are regulated by international phytosanitary regulations (which also includes CITES, which regulates the movement of endangered species).

The normal process is to obtain an official plant Import Permit for the plant material from the country of destination prior to shipping or moving the plants. This is normally issued by a governmental body (such as the Department of Agriculture).

The conditions and regulations for the particular plant that you are wanting to transport will be stated on the permit. The process then involves the applicant being able to meet or prove that the plant materials conform to the requirements on the import permit; this then involves obtaining a Phytosanitary Certificate from the exporting countries authorities.

As you can see this is not really a simple process and can take days or weeks. Most certificates will prohibit the transport of plant materials in "naturally occurring soils" (basically digging a plant out of the ground and shipping it), this means that plants can normally only be shipped in an "artificial medium" or bear rooted - which normally applies to commercially cultivated horticultural plants.

It is not advisable to simply take plant material with you in your luggage as some plants are banned in certain countries, and could earn you a spell in jail for even having them in your possession. Australia has particularly rigid regulations and penalties regarding this, while the movement of plant materials within EU countries is fairly easy and has few restrictions.

It should also be noted that the movement of certain types of plants even within the same country is regulated; for example the movement of citrus plants between states in the USA.

Note: This process also applies to seeds or packets of seeds
