    The easy path is to simply supply you with a platitude in lieu of a name.

    ! Moderator Note When you are ready to post it, do so. Ensure that it complies with the rigor we expect. There's no use to this tap-dancing about a conjecture that is being kept from us.

    I was wondering the web and saw a Nikola Tesla video and saw that Tesla is applying high voltage, high frequencies. How exactly does Tesla do high volts and high frequencies at the same time? Does he use sound using an ancient amplifier and oscilloscope? XD or is it related to AC motors in which the currents oscillate and the faster the AC motor is, the higher the frequency/oscillations which then goes to a step up coil???

    Alright then. There are thousands of people who lurk dropping domains each day and even more trade domain names. Good and valuable domains drop frequently, even every day. Occasionally, even 6 figure domains can drop. All of the good ones are being caught by ''dropcatchers'' and then auctioned off to investors. I won't bother explaining how all of that works because it's not really relevant. I looked into it and investigated and I know exactly how dropcatching is done and I could do it in theory, but I would need a very large (read: impossible) investment to be able to compete with the others realistically. If I (or you) could figure out a pattern and know or be able to estimate when the names will drop, it would be a lot easier and cheaper and the ''randomness'' with which these domains drop seems really weird. But all of this is extremely far fetched, as it's probably highly unlikely that this would turn out to be even remotely simple. Besides, it would be useless if everyone knew how to do it which is why I didn't want to say anything.

    https://phys.org/news/2018-12-luca-universal-common-ancestor.html Looking for LUCA, the last universal common ancestor December 18, 2018 by Keith Cooper, NASA Around 4 billion years ago there lived a microbe called LUCA: the Last Universal Common Ancestor. There is evidence that it could have lived a somewhat 'alien' lifestyle, hidden away deep underground in iron-sulfur rich hydrothermal vents. Anaerobic and autotrophic, it didn't breathe air and made its own food from the dark, metal-rich environment around it. Its metabolism depended upon hydrogen, carbon dioxide and nitrogen, turning them into organic compounds such as ammonia. Most remarkable of all, this little microbe was the beginning of a long lineage that encapsulates all life on Earth. If we trace the tree of life far enough back in time, we come to find that we're all related to LUCA. If the war cry for our exploration of Mars is 'follow the water', then in the search for LUCA it's 'follow the genes'. The study of the genetic tree of life, which reveals the genetic relationships and evolutionary history of organisms, is called phylogenetics. Over the last 20 years our technological ability to fully sequence genomes and build up vast genetic libraries has enabled phylogenetics to truly come of age and has taught us some profound lessons about life's early history.

We investigated all clusters and phylogenetic trees for 6.1 million protein coding genes from sequenced prokaryotic genomes in order to reconstruct the microbial ecology of LUCA. Among 286,514 protein clusters, we identified 355 protein families (∼0.1%) that trace to LUCA by phylogenetic criteria. Because these proteins are not universally distributed, they can shed light on LUCA's physiology. Their functions, properties and prosthetic groups depict LUCA as anaerobic, CO2-fixing, H2-dependent with a Wood–Ljungdahl pathway, N2-fixing and thermophilic. LUCA's biochemistry was replete with FeS clusters and radical reaction mechanisms. Its cofactors reveal dependence upon transition metals, flavins, S-adenosyl methionine, coenzyme A, ferredoxin, molybdopterin, corrins and selenium. Its genetic code required nucleoside modifications and S-adenosyl methionine-dependent methylations. The 355 phylogenies identify clostridia and methanogens, whose modern lifestyles resemble that of LUCA, as basal among their respective domains. LUCA inhabited a geochemically active environment rich in H2, CO2 and iron. The data support the theory of an autotrophic origin of life involving the Wood–Ljungdahl pathway in a hydrothermal setting.

    A potentially even better idea is to explore the admissions requirements of universities you might want to physically attend in the future (if the financial situation changes, of course). Essentially, you could spend time and money completing online coursework for an accredited college with a great reputation and STILL be unable to transfer those credits when you explore a full-time university option later. For clarity, let's use CY's Penn State comment. Assume you take online courses through Penn. Surely, Penn will accept those credits. But what happens if later you decide to go to Pitt or to University of Illinois? Will THEY accept those online credits? Recommend you need to explore those admissions requirements before you sit down and pay money and do a bunch of work online.

    No Baking soda is sodium bicarbonate. Baking powder is a mixture of baking soda and an acid- traditionally potassium bitartrate. Saying "Baking powder and baking soda is (the most of time) the same thing" like saying vodka and water are the same thing because vodka has water in it. Does this help? https://www.thekitchn.com/the-most-magical-egg-replacement-and-how-to-use-it-234588

    Like Dimreepr said, its the other way around. Basically, the transmission has a certain resistance which causes the car to slow down when you downshift. There are many gears connected to each other in the car’s transmission, when power is applied there is a certain loss of power due to the transmission resistance. That loss of power due to resistance is the main factor which slows your car down when you downshift (there are other smaller factors, this is the main one) A good example would be a rally car or race car transmission which is very rigid and has a very high resistance to withstand high power. If you downshift in a car with a transmission like that, you essentially feel like you would hit the brakes really hard.
