Gottlieb Daimler

Gottlieb Wilhelm Daimler was an engineer, industrial designer and industrialist born in Schorndorf, in what is now Germany. He was a pioneer of automobile development, he invented the high-speed liquid petroleum-fuelled engine. Daimler and his lifelong business partner Wilhelm Maybach were two inventors whose goal was to create small, high-speed engines to be mounted in any kind of locomotion device. In 1883 they designed a horizontal cylinder layout compressed charge liquid petroleum engine that fulfilled Daimler's desire for a high speed engine which could be throttled, making it useful in transportation applications; this engine was called Daimler's Dream. In 1885 they designed a vertical cylinder version of this engine which they subsequently fitted to a two-wheeler, the first internal combustion motorcycle, named the Petroleum Reitwagen and, in the next year, to a coach, a boat. Daimler called this engine the grandfather clock engine because of its resemblance to a large pendulum clock. In 1890, they converted their partnership into a stock company Daimler Motoren Gesellschaft.

They sold their first automobile in 1892. Daimler took a break from the business. Upon his return he experienced difficulty with the other stockholders that led to his resignation in 1893; this was reversed in 1894. Maybach resigned at the same time, returned. In 1900 Daimler died and Wilhelm Maybach quit DMG in 1907. Gottlieb Wilhelm Daimler was the son of a baker named Johannes Däumler and his wife Frederika, from the town of Schorndorf near Stuttgart, Württemberg. By the age of 13, he had completed six years of primary studies in Lateinschule and became interested in engineering. After completing secondary school in 1848, Daimler had trained as a gunsmith under Master Gunsmith Hermann Raithel. In 1852 he ended the training with the trade examination, he graduated in 1852. The same year, at eighteen, Daimler decided to take up mechanical engineering, abandoning gunsmithing, left his hometown. Daimler enrolled at Stuttgart's School for Advanced Training in the Industrial Arts, under the tutelage of Ferdinand von Steinbeis.

Daimler was studious taking extra Sunday morning classes. In 1853, with Steinbeis' assistance, got work at "the factory college", Rollé und Schwilque in Grafenstaden, so-called because its manager, Friedrich Messmer, had been an instructor at the University of Karlsruhe. Daimler performed well, when Rollé und Schwilque began making railway locomotives in 1856, Daimler 22, was named foreman. Instead of staying, Daimler took two years at Stuttgart's Polytechnic Institute to hone his skills, gaining in-depth understanding of steam locomotives, as well as "a profound conviction" steam was destined to be superseded, he conceived small, simple engines for light industrial use inspired by the newly developed gas engines of that era. In 1861, he resigned from R&S, visiting Paris went on to England, working with the country's top engineering firms, becoming knowledgeable with machine tools, he spent from autumn 1861 to summer 1863 in England regarded as "the motherland of technology", at Beyer and Company of Gorton, Manchester.

Beyer was from Saxony. While in London, he visited the 1862 International Exhibition, where one of the exhibits was a steam carriage; these carriages did not evidently inspire him, for his wish was to produce machine tools and woodworking machinery. Daimler went to work for Maschinenfabrik Daniel Straub, Geislingen an der Steige, where he designed tools and turbines. In 1863, he joined the Bruderhaus Reutlingen, a Christian Socialist toolmaker, as inspector and executive. While there, he met Wilhelm Maybach a 15-year-old orphan. Thanks to Daimler's organizational skills, the factory managed to show a profit, but he quit in frustration in 1869, joining Maschinenbau Gesellschaft Karlsruhe in July; when in 1872 N. A. Otto and Cie reorganized as Gasmotoren-Fabrik Deutz, management picked Daimler as factory manager, bypassing Otto, Daimler joined the company in August, bringing in Maybach as chief designer. While Daimler managed to improve production, the weakness in Otto's vertical piston design, coupled to Daimler's stubborn insistence on atmospheric engines, led the company to an impasse.

Neither Otto nor Daimler would give way, when Daimler was offered the choice of founding a Deutz branch in St. Petersburg or resigning, he resigned to set up shop in Cannstatt, where he was shortly joined by Maybach. In 1872 at age 38, Daimler and Maybach moved to work at the world's largest manufacturer of stationary engines at the time, the Deutz-AG-Gasmotorenfabrik in Cologne, it was half-owned by Nikolaus Otto, looking for a new technical director. As directors, both Daimler and Otto focused on gas-engine development while Maybach was chief designer. In 1876, Otto developed a gaseous fuel, compressed charge four-stroke cycle, engine after 14 years of effort, a system characterized by four piston strokes. Otto intended that his invention would replace the steam engines predominant in those years though his engine was still primitive and inefficient. Otto's engine was patented in 1877. Daimler, who wanted to make his own engine, feared. Daimler hired an attorney who found that a "previous art" patent for a four stroke

MV Monte Palomares

MV Monte Palomares was a Spanish cargo ship that operated from 1961 until her sinking in 1966 with the loss of 32 of her 38 crew. She was built by Euskalduna in Olaveaga, Spain, she was launched on 28 July 1961, delivered to her owners in November. Monte Palomares measured 5,973 GT and 10,500 DWT, had a length of 144.7 metres and a beam of 18.7 metres. She was powered by a diesel engine driving a single propeller. At the time of her loss, she was owned by Naviera Aznar and her captain was José Goitia. In January 1966, Monte Palomares was sailing east from Norfolk, Virginia to Spain with 38 crewmembers and a cargo of corn when she encountered heavy weather, with winds up to 55 knots and seas up to 35 feet, about 840 miles east-northeast of Bermuda, she issued a distress call midday on 10 January, sank sometime that day. In response to the call, the American cargo ship Steel Maker and the Danish cargo ship Thuro Maersk sailed for Monte Palomares, the United States Coast Guard dispatched an aircraft from Newfoundland to search the area, as well as the cutter USCGC Barataria from Bermuda and the cutter USCGC Escanaba from her patrol in the area.

In the early morning of 11 January, Steel Maker rescued four crewmembers from Monte Palomares, who had abandoned their ship in a life raft. In the day, Escanaba recovered a second life raft containing two survivors and the body of a Monte Palomares crewmember. On 14 January, the Coast Guard ended the search for further survivors

Yahoo! Japan

Yahoo! Japan Corporation is a Japanese internet company formed as a joint venture between the American internet company Yahoo! and the Japanese company SoftBank. It is headquartered at Kioi Tower in the Tokyo Garden Terrace Kioicho complex in Kioicho, Tokyo. Yahoo! Japan's web portal is the most visited website in Japan, its internet services are dominant in the country. Yahoo! and SoftBank formed Yahoo! Japan in January 1996 to set up the first web portal in Japan. Yahoo! Japan went live on April 1, 1996. Yahoo! Japan was listed on JASDAQ in November 1997. In January 2000, it became the first stock in Japanese history to trade for more than ¥100 million per share; the company was listed on the Tokyo Stock Exchange in October 2003 and became part of the Nikkei 225 stock market index in 2005. Yahoo! Japan acquired the naming rights for the Fukuoka Dome in 2005, renaming the dome as the "Fukuoka Yahoo! Japan Dome"; the "Yahoo Dome" is the home field for the Fukuoka SoftBank Hawks, a professional baseball team majority owned by SoftBank.

Since 2010, Yahoo! Japan's search engine has been based on Google's search technology. In exchange, Google receives user activity data from Yahoo! Japan's various products. In 2017, Verizon Communications purchased the core internet business of America-based Yahoo!, merged them into Oath, Inc. Yahoo! Japan was not affected, it continued as a joint venture between Softbank. Yahoo! had been declining in popularity and economically since the late 2000s, but the situation has been quite the opposite for Yahoo! Japan, which continues to dominate Japan's internet industry. Following the sale, Yahoo! Japan will continue to use the name "Yahoo!" under license from Verizon Communications. In July 2018, SoftBank bought $2 billion worth of shares in Yahoo! Japan from Altaba, increasing its stake to 48.17 percent. Yahoo! Japan, in turn, bought nearly the same amount of stock from SoftBank. In September 2018, Altaba sold all of its remaining shares in Yahoo! Japan for $4.3 billion. Yahoo! Japan was a founding member of Rakuten CEO Hiroshi Mikitani's Japan e-business association in February 2010, but after Rakuten withdrew from the Japan Business Federation in June 2011 and made moves to become the Japan Association of New Economy as a rival to Keidanren, Yahoo!

Japan withdrew from the e-business association in March 2012. It joined Keidanren in July 2012. Yahoo! Japan continues to use the site design and logo used by Yahoo! Internationally prior to 2009. One of Yahoo! JAPAN's main businesses, it was a directory-type search engine like Yahoo! in the United States, a crawler-type search engine was attached to it, but because the use of a crawler-type search engine increased, after October 3, 2005 It switched to use a crawler-type engine as the subject. On June 29, 2017, Yahoo! Japan announced that the directory-based search engine "Yahoo! Category", in operation since its establishment, will be abolished on March 29, 2018; as a crawler type search engine using the search engine of goo, using Google's engine from May 2000 switched to Yahoo Search Technology, an engine developed by Yahoo! in the US. In addition to regular search engines, it has partnered with Twitter to provide real-time search for tweets, it receives data feeds from partner companies, COOKPAD and NAVER information is displayed in search results.

"Yahoo! Search Custom Search" was discontinued on March 31, 2019 Yahoo! Japan Mail maintains the classic look of Yahoo! Mail, but remains a separate service operated in Japan. Another notable change is the 10 GB storage limit, in contrast to Yahoo! Mail's 1 TB of its former unlimited-storage offering. GeoCities was available until March 2019 via Yahoo! Japan. Japan's largest internet auction service provided by Yahoo! Japan's auction site boasts an overwhelming number of users. In the past, Yahoo! Auctions was abbreviated as Yafuoku. Now Yahoo! Auctions is now known as Yahoo! Auctions, but now Yafuoku! Is the official name. EBay appeared into Japan in 2001, but did not compete with Yahoo! Japan, ahead of it. A store website like Rakuten. Sales site for travel products. A new service created in June 2011 by integrating Yahoo! Map, Yahoo! Gourmet, Yahoo! Route Information, more, it is a service that combines map information and regional information, Yahoo! calls it "the largest geoservice in Japan." GyaO is a Japanese video on demand service by Yahoo!
