Is Recent History on Topic?

To me, there's a fuzzy line that needs to be drawn to distinguish current events from history. Where to draw it can arguably be debated to death. Personally, I would usually draw it at when a generation or two has come to age after the event and its short-term ramifications have all played out to their conclusions. Put another way, an event becomes history when it no longer is a vivid part of a new generation's collective memory.The point in drawing this line is to give enough time for the dust to settle. Information presented as facts at the time of an event may turn out to be false or incomplete; there can be good calls and misjudgments on the likely effects and legacy of an event; etc. When there are enough adults in the street who were not born when an event and its short-term ramifications were in full motion, methinks everyone can agree the event is history; before that, it's still a current event in my opinion.This definition, as an aside, makes where to draw the line very fuzzy depending on the event and its significance. Indeed, some events can stay current for a very long time. I would argue that 9/11, for instance, is still a current event to a large degree in the sense that what its immediate aftereffects (the war on terror, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, etc.) arguably are still in full motion. I can still vividly remember the before and the after 9/11; methinks it will take another generation or two before we can all agree it should be filed under history.Similarly, I would put forward that the GD and WW2 stayed current events for a very long time - possibly over two generations. As an anecdote, my parents grew up into adults that carried over - albeit to a much lesser degree - the obsessions of their own parents with having little to no debt in case of job loss, a garden in case of food shortages, and a chimney in case of fuel shortages. Both were born a few years after WW2, but the scars of the latter took a while to disappear.I think we can agree that the crowd giggle during the Royal Wedding is someone cracking a joke at one point with the joke not getting picked up by any microphones. We might learn what the joke was in a few weeks or months or years - assuming ever - when someone who actually witnessed the event discusses it.As for your Sephardic peoples question, the laws were passed only a few years ago - which in government time is just about yesterday. Government sites might have some raw numbers, hence my suggestion to ask in Politics. But for the rest, I am fairly certain we will need a generation or two to get enough witness accounts of how things went before anyone is able to unequivocally say proof of descent was easier or harder than jumping through administrative hoops. (Plus it most certainly varies with the family.)

1. What is the History of Germany?

The Romans were the first to see the assortment of tribes in central Europe as Germania, but they did not unify till after the dark ages, during which the area was dominated by clans such as the Saxons. Even then when they were loosely tied together as the Holy Roman Empire it was not long before it crumbled and the Germanic states acted independently of each other for several centuries. Finally in 1869 the Prussians defeated the Austrians, the only other powerful German State, and by 1871 they had defeated France, the only state that could contest their supremacy in the area, and declared the state of Germany in the Hall of Mirrors in the Palace of Versaille. For the next 20 years with Bismark as their Chancellor they played off the European Powers against eachother, isolating France from International Diplomacy and forcing territorial concessions from the British to assure peace. But by the early 20th Century Bismark's successors found themselves in a trickier situation, they had denied Russia the loans it needed in the 1890s and the Tsar had instead looked France, leaving the Germans with enemies on 2 fronts. The situation was made worse again when Britain joined the entente against the Franco-Russian entente, partly because the Kaiser's naval policies were increasingly threatening British trade and imperial supremacy and partly because they had solved their colonial differences with France that had previously kept them apart. This meant that Germany was reliant upon its only ally: Austro-Hungary. This forced them into WW1 when the Austrians attacked Serbia after Serbs killed Franz Ferdinand (the Austrian crown prince). The German plan to win the war in just a couple of months failed and a lenghty war ensued which i dont feel you want much detail on. When it was over they signed the Treaty of Versaille and were forced to pay huge reparations to the Allies and reduce their military significantly and demilitarise several areas, particularly the key defence line of the Rhineland that bordered France. These factors and the Great Depression in the '30s led to the rise of the Nazi party that had been formed by disgruntled soldiers after WW1. They rebuilt the military, revitalised society and economy and generally trampled on the Treaty of Versaille. Hitler went on to remilitarise the Rhineland and take back Czechoslovakia with very little objection from the Allies. Only when he invaded Poland in 1939 with the Soviets did they intervene. Germany may have won the war following their defeat of France in 1940 but in 1941 they invaded the USSR to weaken the British and supported the Japanese after the attack on Pearl Harbour and found themselves in a war they could no longer handle. Finally in 1945 they were defeated (again not much detail on the war so i can keep this relatively brief) and Germany was split between the Allies into West and East Germany. During the Cold War Stalin blockaded Allied held Berlin and it had to be supplied by air for over a year, both sides went on to keep significant forces in Germany as both suspected that would be where the other would begin a ground war. After the failed Bay of Pigs invasion by Kennedy the Russians built the Berlin Wall and the 2 halves of Germany became completely separate. Only after this wall fell did Germany become one nation again in 1990. Since then it has been a dominant political and financial member of the European and Union and is arguably the most infuential European state. Hope that bried enough.

2. Whats the history of eggnog?

Many believe that eggnog is a tradition that was brought to America from Europe. This is partially true. Eggnog is related to various milk and wine punches that had been concocted long ago in the "Old World". However, in America a new twist was put on the theme. Rum was used in the place of wine. In Colonial America, rum was commonly called "grog", so the name eggnog is likely derived from the very descriptive term for this drink, "egg-and-grog", which corrupted to egg'n'grog and soon to eggnog. At least this is one version... Other experts would have it that the "nog" of eggnog comes from the word "noggin". A noggin was a small, wooden, carved mug. It was used to serve drinks at table in taverns (while drinks beside the fire were served in tankards). It is thought that eggnog started out as a mixture of Spanish "Sherry" and milk. The English called this concoction "Dry sack posset". It is very easy to see how an egg drink in a noggin could become eggnog. The true story might be a mixture of the two and eggnog was originally called "egg and grog in a noggin". This was a term that required shortening if ever there was one. With it's European roots and the availability of the ingredients, eggnog soon became a popular wintertime drink throughout Colonial America. It had much to recommend it; it was rich, spicy, and alcoholic. In the 1820's Pierce Egan, a period author, wrote a book called "Life of London: or Days and Nights of Jerry Hawthorne and His Elegant Friend Corinthina Tom". To publicize his work Mr. Egan made up a variation of eggnog he called "Tom and Jerry". It added 1/2 oz of brandy to the basic recipe (fortifying it considerably and adding further to its popularity). Eggnog, in the 1800s was nearly always made in large quantities and nearly always used as a social drink. It was commonly served at holiday parties and it was noted by an English visitor in 1866, "Christmas is not properly observed unless you brew egg nogg for all comers; everybody calls on everybody else; and each call is celebrated by a solemn egg-nogging...It is made cold and is drunk cold and is to be commended." Of course, Christmas was not the only day upon which eggnog was popular. In Baltimore it was a tradition for young men to call upon all of their friends on New years day. At each of many homes the strapping fellows were offered a cup of eggnog, and so as they went they became more and more inebriated. It was quite a feat to actually finish one's rounds. Our first President, George Washington, was quite a fan of eggnog and devised his own recipe that included rye whiskey, rum and sherry. It was reputed to be a stiff drink that only the most courageous were willing to try. Eggnog is still a popular drink during the holidays, and its social character remains. It is hard to imagine a Christmas without a cup of the "nog" to spice up the atmosphere and lend merriment and joy to the proceedings. When you try out some of the recipes on this site, remember that, like many other of our grand traditions, there is history and life behind that little frothy brew.

3. Which was the greatest Empire in history?

Guess it depends on how you rate them. Just size I would think Mongols or Greeks. Just amount of time probably Egyptians. If you want to combine both I would say Roman

Let's Talk About the Application of Thermal Conductive Silica Gel in LED Lighting Industry
Thermal conductive silica gel sheet is a widely used thermal conductive interface material. It is in the form of sheet, high pressure shrinkage, high reliability, high temperature resistance, excellent thermal conductivity and insulation, with viscosity on the surface, simple and convenient construction. It can be die-cut and punched according to the size and shape of heating devices.Heat conductive silica gel sheet is a kind of heat conductive medium material made by calendering with silica gel as the base material and adding various auxiliary materials such as metal oxides. It is usually called heat conductive gasket, heat conductive silica gel gasket, heat conductive silicon film, soft heat conductive gasket, heat conductive silica gel pad, etc. it is specially produced for the design scheme of using the gap to transfer heat and can fill the gap, It not only completes the heat transfer between the heating part and the heat dissipation part, but also plays the roles of insulation, shock absorption and sealing. It can meet the design requirements of miniaturization and ultra-thin equipment. It is a good heat conduction filling material with manufacturability and usability, and has a wide range of thickness and Application.Led thermal conductive silicon film is mainly used between aluminum substrate and heat sink, between aluminum substrate and shell, etc. Today, we mainly introduce the successful application of thermal conductive silica gel sheet in LED industry: there are many kinds of LED lamps. For indoor LED lamps, thermal conductive silica gel sheet with relatively low thermal conductivity is generally used, which can reduce the cost of the product and meet the needs of the product itself. For some outdoor high-power LED lamps, such as street lamps, the power is much higher than other indoor lamps, In order to better heat dissipation of lamps and improve the service life of lamps, thermal conductive silica gel sheets with relatively high thermal conductivity are generally used.The inherent viscosity of the heat-conducting silica gel sheet facilitates the construction. If the customer needs the heat-conducting silica gel sheet to have strong viscosity to replace the screw fixation, he can also choose to give one-sided or double-sided adhesive backing to the heat-conducting silica gel sheet. If the heat-conducting silica gel sheet needs to lock the screw, please remember to choose the heat-conducting silica gel sheet containing glass fiber cloth, which has the properties of anti puncture and anti tear. In short, the heat conductive silica gel sheet can be customized according to customer requirements to meet customer needs. It can be die-cut and punched according to the size and shape of heating devices.
