Yunus Emre

Yunus Emre was a Turkish poet and Sufi mystic who influenced Turkish culture His name, Yunus, is the equivalent to the English name Jonah. He wrote in an early stage of modern Turkish; the UNESCO General Conference unanimously passed a resolution declaring 1991, the 750th anniversary of the poet's birth, "The International Yunus Emre Year". Yunus Emre has exercised immense influence on Turkish literature from his own day until the present, because Yunus Emre is, after Ahmet Yesevi and Sultan Walad, one of the first known poets to have composed works in the spoken Turkish of his own age and region rather than in Persian or Arabic, his diction remains close to the popular speech of the people in Central and Western Anatolia. This is the language of a number of anonymous folk-poets, folk-songs, fairy tales and proverbs. Yunus Emre was a Sunni Muslim. Like the Oghuz Book of Dede Korkut, an older and anonymous Central Asian epic, the Turkish folklore that inspired Yunus Emre in his occasional use of tekerlemeler as a poetic device had been handed down orally to him and his contemporaries.

This oral tradition continued for a long while. Following the Mongolian invasion of Anatolia facilitated by the Sultanate of Rûm's defeat at the 1243 Battle of Köse Dağ, Islamic mystic literature thrived in Anatolia, Yunus Emre became one of its most distinguished poets. Poems of Sultan Yunus Emre — despite being simple on the surface — evidence his skill in describing quite abstruse mystical concepts in a clear way, he remains a popular figure in a number of countries, stretching from Azerbaijan to the Balkans, with seven different and dispersed localities disputing the privilege of having his tomb within their boundaries. His poems, written in the tradition of Anatolian folk poetry concern divine love as well as human destiny: and Yunus Emre: Askin Sesi - A 2014 Turkish film based on Yunus Emre's life starring Ibrahim Celikkol in the lead role.

Pink Taco

Pink Taco is a restaurant chain in Los Angeles, with locations in West Hollywood on the Sunset Strip and in Century City, located on the premises of the Westfield Century City mall. It serves Mexican food; the first Pink Taco restaurant was opened in 1999 at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Paradise, Nevada. A second location in Scottsdale, Arizona met with controversy and remained open for less than three years, between 2006 and 2009. A third location opened on June 2007 in Century City, Los Angeles, California. In 2018, a location opened up in Chicago's Near North Side neighborhood; the name has caused controversy in Scottsdale, where the restaurant attempted to open a second location. In response, the city government received four emails complaining about the name; this generated a complaint from Mayor Mary Manross who said she was offended, although she did not see the name in a sexual way until the complaints were raised. She asked the owner to change the name. On May 15, 2006, the Scottsdale City Council, by a unanimous vote, recommended the restaurant for a liquor license from the Arizona Department of Liquor Licenses and Control.

One resident raised an objection at the meeting, saying the name "demeans and degrades women." The state agency said. The Scottsdale location closed on April 1, 2009; the restaurant gained the attention of the media, was soon contacted by representatives from The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and Mind of Mencia with requests for interviews, which were turned down. President and CEO Harry Morton appeared on the June 27, 2006, episode of The Daily Show, which featured a story on the controversy by reporter Ed Helms. During his interview, Morton explained that the name comes from a menu item, that if the restaurant were "vagina-themed", there would be "vaginas all over the walls". In August 2006, Morton announced a $30 million bid for the naming rights to the Arizona Cardinals' new stadium in Glendale, Arizona; the offer was rejected by the Cardinals, who dismissed the announcement as a joke and a publicity stunt. On September 28, 2006, Pink Taco launched a similar bid to rename the Louisiana Superdome in New Orleans to the "Pink Taco Dome."

As the State of Louisiana owns the Superdome, any name change must be approved by the Louisiana State Legislature. At 38 years of age the founder of Pink Taco Harry Morton died from coronary artery disease and an irregular heartbeat, confirmed by the Los Angeles County coroner.

Extraneous and missing solutions

In mathematics, an extraneous solution is a solution, such as that to an equation, that emerges from the process of solving the problem but is not a valid solution to the problem. A missing solution is a solution, a valid solution to the problem, but disappeared during the process of solving the problem. Both are the consequence of performing operations that are not invertible for some or all values of the variables, which prevents the chain of logical implications in the proof from being bidirectional. One of the basic principles of algebra is that one can multiply both sides of an equation by the same expression without changing the equation's solutions; however speaking, this is not true, in that multiplication by certain expressions may introduce new solutions that were not present before. For example, consider the following equation: x + 2 = 0. If we multiply both sides by zero, we get 0 = 0; this is true for all values of x. But not all real numbers are solutions to the original equation.

The problem is that multiplication by zero is not invertible: if we multiply by any nonzero value, we can reverse the step by dividing by the same value, but division by zero is not defined, so multiplication by zero cannot be reversed. More subtly, suppose we take the same equation and multiply both sides by x. We get x = x, x 2 + 2 x = 0; this quadratic equation has two solutions, − 2 and 0. But if zero is substituted for x into the original equation, the result is the invalid equation 2 = 0; this counterintuitive result occurs because in the case where x=0, multiplying both sides by x multiplies both sides by zero, so produces a true equation just as in the first example. In general, whenever we multiply both sides of an equation by an expression involving variables, we introduce extraneous solutions wherever that expression is equal to zero, but it is not sufficient to exclude these values, because they may have been legitimate solutions to the original equation. For example, suppose we multiply both sides of our original equation x + 2 = 0 by x + 2.

We get = 0, x 2 + 4 x + 4 = 0, which has only one real solution: x = −2, this is a solution to the original equation, so it cannot be excluded though x + 2 is zero for this value of x. Extraneous solutions can arise in problems involving fractions with variables in the denominator. For example, consider this equation: 1 x − 2 = 3 x + 2 − 6 x. To begin solving, we multiply each side of the equation by the least common denominator of all the fractions contained in the equation. In this case, the least common denominator is. After performing these operations, the fractions are eliminated, the equation becomes: x + 2 = 3 − 6 x. Solving this yields the single solution x = −2. However, when we substitute the solution back into the original equation, we obtain: 1 − 2 − 2 = 3 − 2 + 2 − 6; the equation becomes: 1 − 4 = 3 0 + 12 0. This equation is not valid. Therefore, the solution x = –2 is extraneous and is not valid, the original equation has no solution. For this specific example, it could be recognized that, the operation of multiplying by would be a multiplication by 0.

However, it is not always simple to evaluate whether each operation performed was allowed by the final answer. Because of this the only simple effective way to deal with multiplication by expressions involving variables is to substitute each of the solutions obtained into the original equation and confirm that this yields a valid equation. After discarding solutions

Tellier T.3

The Tellier T.3 was a French two-seat patrol biplane flying-boat designed and built by Société Alphonse Tellier et Cie à Neuilly and produced by Société Anonyme des Établissements Nieuport. Based on the earlier Tellier T.2 the T.3 was a two-bay, unequal-span biplane flying boat powered by a 200 hp Hispano-Suiza 8Ac engine in pusher configuration, with the pilot sitting ahead of the engine and the gunner/observer in the nose with a forward-facing Vickers machine gun. Following test flights by both the Aviation Militaire and the Aéronavale, the Aéronavale ordered ten aircraft and the British Royal Naval Air Service ordered two for gun and camouflage trials at the Isle of Grain. A total of 100 aircraft were built, including 47 by Nieuport. A development of the T.3 was armed with a cannon in the nose and was designated the Tellier T.c.6. Large orders were placed. Production of two-seat Tellier T.3s was carried out in Russia, but no aircraft were assembled. Ten Tellier T.3s were assembled from the wartime parts, in the nascent Soviet Union, at GAZ No.3.
