Answer: The first known stapler was made in the 18th century in France for King Louis XV. Each staple was inscribed with the insignia of the royal court, as required. Legend has it that the ornate staples it used were forged from gold, encrusted with precious stones, and bore his Royal Court’s insignia. The growing uses of paper in the 19th century created a demand for an efficient paper fastener. Modern staplers can be traced back to a patent filed by Henry R. Heyl in 1877 for the first machine to both insert and clinch a staple in one step.

Answer: Superman was the creation of two teenagers from Cleveland, Ohio: writer Jerry Siegel and artist Joseph Shuster, both children of Jewish immigrants. They were students at Glenville High School when they met in 1931, a pair of shy, awkward and unpopular kids who shared an interest in adventure and science fiction stories. In March 1938, Siegel and Shuster sold the rights to Superman to Detective Comics, the future DC Comics, for $130.

[Ans] Which feature is the determining factor in an alligator embryo’s gender development?

Which feature is the determining factor in an alligator embryo’s gender development?[su_ad]
-Egg temperature
-Nest humidity
-Parental genetics
-Exposure to UV light
[su_ad1]
Description: Alligators, along with some lizards and turtles, do not have sex-determining chromosomes in their genes. It is egg temperature during incubation that actually determines the sex of the offspring. Eggs incubated at 86 degree F will all hatch female offspring. Incubating eggs at 93.2 degree F will result in all male offspring. If the mother builds her nest in a sunlit area, the babies will probably be male. If the nest is in a shady area, the offspring will likely be female. Source: trends2trivia.com

[su_ad2]

Answer: Egg temperature

While light cooking will begin to destroy any bacteria that might be present only proper cooking brings eggs to a high enough temperature to destroy them all. For eggs, the white will coagulate (set) between 144 and 149° F, the yolk between 149 and 158° F, and whole egg between 144 and 158° F.

Which search engine giant was originally named “Jerry’s Guide to the World Wide”?

Which search engine giant was originally named “Jerry’s Guide to the World Wide”?[su_ad]
– Google
– Yahoo
– Bing
– AOL
[su_ad1]
Answer: Co-founded in 1994 by Jerry Yang and David Filo while they were PhD students at Stanford, the company that would become a leading search engine and pioneer of the internet used to go by a much lesser known name. The search engine giant began as Jerry’s Guide to the World Wide Web, but by 1995 the founders realized they’d need something a bit more concise, so they renamed the company Yahoo! — an acronym for “Yet Another Hierarchical Officious Oracle.” According to Filo, the exclamation point was added for “pure marketing hype.”
