Declaration of war
A declaration of war is a formal act by which one state goes to war against another. The declaration is a performative speech act by an authorized party of a national government, in order to create a state of war between two or more states; the legality of, competent to declare war varies between nations and forms of government. In many nations, that power is given to the head of sovereign. In other cases, something short of a full declaration of war, such as a letter of marque or a covert operation, may authorise war-like acts by privateers or mercenaries; the official international protocol for declaring war was defined in the Hague Convention of 1907 on the Opening of Hostilities. Since 1945, developments in international law such as the United Nations Charter, which prohibits both the threat and the use of force in international conflicts, have made declarations of war obsolete in international relations; the UN Security Council, under powers granted in articles 24 and 25, Chapter VII of the Charter, may authorize collective action to maintain or enforce international peace and security.
Article 51 of the United Nations Charter states that: "Nothing in the present Charter shall impair the inherent right to individual or collective self-defence if an armed attack occurs against a state."Few nations have formally declared war upon another since then. In addition to this, non-state or terrorist organizations may claim to or be described as "declaring war" when engaging in violent acts; these declarations may have no legal standing in themselves, but they may still act as a call to arms for supporters of these organizations. A definition of the three ways of thinking about a declaration of war was developed by Saikrishna Prakash, he argues that a declaration of war can be seen from three perspectives: Categorical theory, under which the power to declare war includes "the power to control all decisions to enter war". This means. Pragmatic theory, which states that the power to declare war can be made unnecessary by an act of war in itself. Formalist theory, under which the power to declare war constitutes only a formal documentation of executive war-making decisions.
This sits closest to traditional legal conceptions of. An alternative typology based upon the form of the declaration is formulated by Brien Hallett according to 1) the degree to which the state and condition of war exists, 2) the degree of justification, 3) the degree of ceremony of the speech act, 4) the degree of perfection of the speech act: Degree of existence of the war A conditional declaration of war declares war conditionally, threatening war if the grievances listed are not acknowledged and the preferred remedies demanded are not accepted. An absolute declaration of war declares war due to the failure of negotiations over the grievances and remedies found in the conditional declaration, it ends the state and condition of peace, replacing it with the state and condition of war until such time as peace is restored. Degree of justification of the war A reasoned declaration of war justifies the resort to war by stating the grievances that have made peace intolerable and the remedies that will restore peace.
An unreasoned declaration of war does so only minimally. Degree of ceremony with which the speech act was made A formal or solemn declaration of war is a declaration made by the constitutionally recognized nation following the appropriate laws and rituals. An informal or unsolemn declaration of war is a declaration made in an irregular manner either by a constitutionally unrecognized nation or by the constitutionally recognized nation using unlawful, inappropriate procedures. Degree of perfection with which the speech act was made A perfect declaration of war is a formal, solemn speech act made in accordance with the proper laws and rituals. An imperfect declaration of war is an informal, unsolemn speech act not made in accordance with the proper laws and rituals; the practice of declaring war has a long history. The ancient Sumerian Epic of Gilgamesh gives an account of it. However, the practice of declaring war was not always followed. In his study Hostilities without Declaration of War, the British scholar John Frederick Maurice showed that between 1700 and 1870 war was declared in only 10 cases, while in another 107 cases war was waged without such declaration.
In modern public international law, a declaration of war entails the recognition between countries of a state of hostilities between these countries, such declaration has acted to regulate the conduct between the military engagements between the forces of the respective countries. The primary multilateral treaties governing such declarations are the Hague Conventions; the League of Nations, formed in 1919 in the wake of the First World War, the General Treaty for the Renunciation of War of 1928 signed in Paris, demonstrated that world powers were seeking a means to prevent the carnage of another world war. These powers were unable to stop the outbreak of the Second World War, so the United Nations was established following that war in a renewed attempt to prevent international aggression through declarations of war. In classical times, Thucydides condemned the Thebans, allies of Sparta, for launching a surprise attack without a declaration of war against Plataea, Athens' ally – an event that began the Peloponnesian War.

Dhow is the generic name of a number of traditional sailing vessels with one or more masts with settee or sometimes lateen sails, used in the Red Sea and Indian Ocean region. Historians are divided as to whether the dhow was invented by Indians. Sporting long thin hulls, dhows are trading vessels used to carry heavy items, such as fruit, fresh water, or other heavy merchandise, along the coasts of Eastern Arabia, East Africa and coastal South Asia. Larger dhows have crews of thirty, smaller ones around twelve; the exact origins of the dhow are lost to history. Most scholars believe that it originated in India between 600 BC to 600 AD; some claim that a type of dhow, may be derived from the Portuguese caravel. The Yemeni Hadhrami people, as well as Omanis, for centuries came to Beypore, in Kerala, India for their dhows; this was because of the good timber in the Kerala forests, the availability of good coir rope, the skilled carpenters who specialized in ship building. In former times, the sheathing planks of a dhow's hull were held together by coconut rope.
Beypore dhows are known as ` Uru' in the local language of Kerala. Settlers from Yemen, known as'Baramis', are still active in making urus in Kerala. In the 1920s, British writers identified Al Hudaydah as the center for dhow building; those built in Al Hudaydah were smaller in size, used for travel along the coasts. They were constructed of acacia found in Yemen. Captain Alan Villiers documented the days of sailing trade in the Indian Ocean by sailing on dhows between 1938 and 1939 taking numerous photographs and publishing books on the subject of dhow navigation. To the present day, dhows make commercial journeys between the Persian Gulf and East Africa using sails as their only means of propulsion, their cargo is dates and fish to East Africa and mangrove timber to the lands in the Persian Gulf. They sail south with the monsoon in winter or early spring, back again to Arabia in late spring or early summer. For celestial navigation, dhow sailors have traditionally used the kamal, an observation device that determines latitude by finding the angle of the Pole Star above the horizon.
Baghlah – from the Arabic language word for "mule". A heavy ship, the traditional deep-sea dhow. Baqarah or baggarah – from the Arabic word for "cow". Old type of small dhow similar to the Battil. Barijah – small dhow. Battil – featured long stems topped by large, club-shaped stem heads. Badan – a smaller vessel requiring a shallow draft. Boum or dhangi – a large-sized dhow with a stern, tapering in shape and a more symmetrical overall structure; the Arab boum has a high prow, trimmed in the Indian version. Ghanjah or kotiya – a large vessel, similar to the Baghlah, with a curved stem and a sloping, ornately carved transom. Jahazi or jihazi. A fishing or trading dhow with a broad hull similar to the Jalibut, common in Lamu Island and the coast of Oman, it is used in Bahrain for the pearl industry. The word comes from jahāz, a Persian word for "ship". Jalibut or jelbut. A small to medium-sized dhow, it is the modern version of the shu'ai with a shorter prow stem piece. Most jalibuts are fitted with engines.
Pattamar, a type of Indian dhow. Sambuk or sambuq – the largest type of dhow seen in the Persian Gulf today, it has a characteristic keel design, with a sharp curve right below the top of the prow. It has been one of the most successful dhows in history; the word is cognate with the Greek σαμβύκη sambúkē from Middle Persian sambūk. Shu'ai. Medium-sized dhow; the most common dhow in the Persian Gulf used for fishing as well as for coastal trade. Zaruq – small dhow larger than a barijahThe term "dhow" is sometimes applied to certain smaller lateen-sail rigged boats traditionally used in the Red Sea, the eastern Mediterranean and the Persian Gulf area, as well as in the Indian Ocean from Madagascar to the Bay of Bengal; these include the feluccas used in Egypt and Iraq, the Dhoni used in the Maldives, as well as the tranki and ghalafah. All these vessels have common elements with the dhow. On the Swahili Coast, in countries such as Kenya, the Swahili word used for dhow is "jahazi".

Doppler on Wheels
Doppler on Wheels is a fleet of X-band radar trucks maintained by the Center for Severe Weather Research in Boulder, led by principal investigator Joshua Wurman, with the funding provided by the National Science Foundation. The DOW fleet and its associated Mobile Mesonet and Pod deployable weather stations are Lower Atmospheric Observing Facilities "National Facilities" supporting a wide variety NSF-sponsored research; as of 2017, there are three operational DOWs of a total of eight constructed since 1995. All three are dual-polarization dual-frequency quick-scanning Doppler weather radars. Several instrumented mobile mesonet pickup trucks host in situ weather instrumentation on 3.5 metres masts to complement the remote sensing radars. These mobile mesonets carry 20 instrumented "PODS", which are ruggedized deployable weather stations designed to survive inside tornadoes, tropical cyclones, other adverse environments; the DOW fleet is sometimes accompanied by a Mobile Operations and Repair Center, a large van containing workstations for in-field coordination, data management, equipment repair.
The DOW fleet has collected data inside the cores of 13 hurricanes. DOWs have been deployed to Europe twice, for the MAP and COPS field programs, to Alaska twice for the JAWS-Juneau projects. DOWs have operated as high as 12,700 feet on Bristol Head and at 10,000 feet for the ASCII project at Battle Pass. Three DOWs, Mobile Mesonets and PODS were deployed for the OWLeS lake-effect snow study; the DOWs have participated in many field programs including: VORTEX, VORTEX2, COPS, MAP, ASCII, IHOP, SCMS, CASES, ROTATE, PAMREX, SNOWD-UNDER, FLATLAND, HERO, UIDOW, UNDEO. The DOW fleet was deployed to the nocturnal convection study, PECAN, in June–July 2015. DOW data led to the discovery of sub-kilometer hurricane boundary layer rolls, which modulate wind damage and may play a key role in hurricane intensification. DOW data revealed the most intense winds recorded, the largest tornadic circulation documented, made the first 3D maps of tornado winds and sub-tornadic vortex winds, documented intense vortices within lake-effect snow bands.
About 70 peer reviewed scientific publications have used DOW data. The DOW fleet, PODS, mobile mesonets have been featured on TV, including Discovery Channel's reality series Storm Chasers, National Geographic Channel's specials Tornado Intercept and The True Face of Hurricanes, PBS's Nova episode "The Hunt for the Supertwister," and others.

Dow Corning was an American multinational corporation headquartered in Midland, United States. Established as a joint venture between the Dow Chemical Company and Corning Incorporated, it is now owned by DowDuPont and specializes in silicone and silicon-based technology, is the largest silicone product producer in the world. Dow Corning was formally established in 1943 as a joint venture between the American conglomerates Dow Chemical and Corning Glass to explore the potential of silicone and was a manufacturer of products for use by the U. S. military in World War II. The company began operating its first plant, in Midland, MI, in 1945. Dr. E. C. Sullivan was named president, Dr. William R. Collings was named general manager in 1943. Dr. Collings became president from 1954 until 1962, it expanded into Canada and Europe in 1948, into South America and Japan in 1961. A large, majority-owned subsidiary of Dow Corning Corporation is the Hemlock Semiconductor Corporation, it is one of the world's largest producers of high-purity polycrystalline silicon, sold in varying purity grades for use in both semiconductor silicon wafer manufacture and photovoltaics applications as solar cells.
In 2002, the company created the Xiameter brand as an online-only distributor. As of 2011, Xiameter offers 2,100 of Dow Corning’s 7,000 products. On November 13, 2014, Dow Chemical's CEO Andrew N. Liveris revealed in a presentation to investors that Corning Incorporated intended to exit the joint venture of 71 years, citing other priorities. Following the December 11, 2015 announcement that it would merge with DuPont, Dow announced that it had reached a deal to acquire Corning's stake in Dow Corning in exchange for $4.8 billion in cash and Corning gaining a 40% stake in Hemlock Semiconductor Corporation. Dow Chemical assumed full ownership of Dow Corning on June 1, 2016. Dow Corning markets over 7000 products, including various sealants, rubbers, silicon oils and solvents. Around 2,100 of these are available through the Dow Corning online-only distributor Xiameter, including fluids, resins; the range of industries targeted by Dow Corning products spans from electronics and automotive to construction and others.
In recent years, the company has expanded production of solar cells through its majority stake in Hemlock Semiconductor Corporation, which accounts for a polysilicon franchise worth over $1 billion. In 2011, then-CTO Gregg Zank explained that the company tries to focus its product development on societal “megatrends”. Throughout the 1980s and 1990s, class-action lawsuits claimed that Dow Corning's silicone breast implants caused systemic health problems; the claims first centered on breast cancer and migrated to a range of autoimmune diseases, including lupus, rheumatoid arthritis and various neurological problems. This led to numerous lawsuits beginning in 1984 and culminating in a 1998 multibillion-dollar class action settlement; as a result, Dow Corning was in bankruptcy protection for nine years, ending in June 2004 during which time it withdrew from clinical markets. Although a number of independent reviews, including the Institute of Medicine in the United States, subsequently indicated that silicone breast implants do not cause breast cancers or any identifiable systemic diseases, on 21 March 2017, the FDA issued a statement indicating that women with breast implants have a "very low but increased risk" of getting a rare form of cancer called anaplastic large-cell lymphoma.
The cancer is associated with nine deaths, the FDA said. These findings have caused an uptick in breast implant removal surgeries. Breast implant controversy GreenEarth Cleaning Silicone Official website
Indigenous peoples in Brazil
Indigenous peoples in Brazil or Indigenous Brazilians, comprise a large number of distinct ethnic groups who have inhabited what is now the country of Brazil since prior to the European contact around 1500. Unlike Christopher Columbus, who thought he had reached the East Indies, the Portuguese, most notably Vasco da Gama, had reached India via the Indian Ocean route when they reached Brazil; the word índios was by established to designate the people of the New World and continues to be used today in the Portuguese language to designate these people, while a person from India is called indiano in order to distinguish the two. At the time of European contact, some of the indigenous people were traditionally semi-nomadic tribes who subsisted on hunting, fishing and migrant agriculture. Many of the estimated 2,000 nations and tribes which existed in the 16th century suffered extinction as a consequence of the European settlement and many were assimilated into the Brazilian population; the indigenous population was killed by European diseases, declining from a pre-Columbian high of millions to some 300,000, grouped into 200 tribes.
However, the number could be much higher if the urban indigenous populations are counted in all the Brazilian cities today. A somewhat dated linguistic survey found 188 living indigenous languages with 155,000 total speakers. On January 18, 2007, FUNAI reported that it had confirmed the presence of 67 different uncontacted tribes in Brazil, up from 40 in 2005. With this addition, Brazil has now surpassed New Guinea as the country having the largest number of uncontacted peoples in the world. Brazilian indigenous people have made substantial and pervasive contributions to the world's medicine with knowledge used today by pharmaceutical corporations and cultural development—such as the domestication of tobacco and cassava. In the last IBGE census, 817,000 Brazilians classified themselves as indigenous. Questions about the original settlement of the Americas has produced a number of hypothetical models; the origins of these indigenous people are still a matter of dispute among archaeologists. Anthropological and genetic evidence indicates that most Amerindian people descended from migrant people from North Asia who entered the Americas across the Bering Strait or along the western coast of North America in at least three separate waves.
In Brazil most native tribes who were living in the land by 1500 are thought to be descended from the first Siberian wave of migrants, who are believed to have crossed the Bering Land Bridge at the end of the last Ice Age, between 13,000 and 17,000 years before the present. A migrant wave would have taken some time after initial entry to reach present-day Brazil entering the Amazon River basin from the Northwest.. An analysis of Amerindian Y-chromosome DNA indicates specific clustering of much of the South American population; the micro-satellite diversity and distributions of the Y lineage specific to South America indicates that certain Amerindian populations have been isolated since the initial colonization of the region. According to an autosomal genetic study from 2012, Native Americans descend from at least three main migrant waves from East Asia. Most of it is traced back to a single ancestral population, called'First Americans'. However, those who speak Inuit languages from the Arctic inherited half of their ancestry from a second East Asian migrant wave.
And those who speak Na-dene, on the other hand, inherited a tenth of their ancestry from a third migrant wave. The initial settling of the Americas was followed by a rapid expansion southwards, by the coast, with little gene flow especially in South America. One exception to this are the Chibcha speakers, whose ancestry comes from both North and South America. Another study, focused on the mtDNA, revealed that the indigenous people of the Americas have their maternal ancestry traced back to a few founding lineages from East Asia, which would have arrived via the Bering strait. According to this study, it is probable that the ancestors of the Native Americans would have remained for a time in the region of the Bering Strait, after which there would have been a rapid movement of settling of the Americas, taking the founding lineages to South America. Linguistic studies have backed up genetic studies, with ancient patterns having been found between the languages spoken in Siberia and those spoken in the Americas.
Two 2015 autosomal DNA genetic studies confirmed the Siberian origins of the Natives of the Americas. However an ancient signal of shared ancestry with the Natives of Australia and Melanesia was detected among the Natives of the Amazon region; the migration coming out of Siberia would have happened 23,000 years ago. According to a 2016 study, focused on mtDNA lineages, "a small population entered the Americas via a coastal route around 16.0 ka, following previous isolation in eastern Beringia for ~2.4 to 9 thousand years after separation from eastern Siberian populations. Following a rapid movement throughout the Americas, limited gene flow in South America resulted in a marked phylogeographic structure of populations, which persisted through time. All of the ancient mitochondrial lineages detected in this study were absent from modern data sets, suggesting a high extinction rate. To investigate this further, we applied a novel principal components multiple logistic regression test to
