A Mobile Game

A mobile game is a video game has fun on a mobile phone, Smartphone, PDA, handheld computer or any type of handheld or wireless device.

Mobile games are played using the technologies current on the device itself. For networked games, there are different technologies in common use. Examples contain text message (SMS), multimedia message (MMS) or GPRS location identification.

However, there are non networked applications, which simply use the machine platform to run the game software. The games may be installed over the air, they may be side loaded onto the receiver with a cable, or they may be embedded on the handheld devices by the OEM or by the mobile operator.

Mobile games are generally downloaded via the mobile operator's radio network, but in some cases are also loaded into the mobile handsets when purchased, or via infrared connection, Bluetooth or memory card.

Household Electric Fan

A mechanical fan is a device used to create an airflow for the purpose of creature comfort, ventilation, exhaust, or any other gaseous transport.

Mechanically, a fan can be any rotating vane or vanes used for producing currents of air. Fans produce air flows with high volume and low pressure, as opposed to a gas compressor which creates high pressures at a comparatively low volume. A fan blade will often rotate when exposed to an air stream, and devices that take advantage of this, such as anemometers and wind turbines often have designs alike to that of a fan.

Typical applications contain climate control, cooling systems, personal comfort (e.g., an electric table fan), ventilation (e.g., an exhaust fan), winnowing (e.g., separating chaff of cereal grains), removing dust (e.g. sucking as in a vacuum cleaner), drying (usually in addition to heat) and to provide draft for a fire. It is also general to use electric fans as air fresheners, by attaching fabric softener sheets to the protective housing. This causes the fragrance to be carried into the immediate air.

In addition to their utilitarian function, vintage or antique fans, and in exacting electric fans manufactured from the late 1800s through the 1950s, have become a recognized collectible category, and in the U.S.A. an active collector club, the Antique Fan Collectors Association, supports the hobby.

An ice age is a period of long-term downturn in the temperature of Earth's climate, resulting in an increase of the continental ice sheets, polar ice sheets and mountain glaciers. Glaciologically, ice age is often used to mean a period of ice sheets in the northern and southern hemispheres; by this description we are still in an ice age. More colloquially, when speaking of the most recent few million years, ice age is used to refer to colder periods with extensive ice sheets over the North American and European continents: in this sense, the last ice age ended about 10,000 years ago. This article will use the term ice age in the former, glaciological, sense; and use the term 'glacial periods' for colder periods the duration of ice ages and 'interglacial' for the warmer periods.

During the last few million years, there have been many glacial periods, occurring firstly at 40,000-year frequency but more recently at 100,000-year frequencies.

History Of Natural Science

Prior to the 17th century, the objective study of nature was called as natural philosophy. Over the next two centuries, however, a philosophical interpretation of nature was gradually changed by a scientific approach using inductive methodology. The works of Sir Francis Bacon popularized this approach, thereby helping to create the scientific revolution.

By the 19th century the study of science had come into the purview of professionals and institutions, and in so doing it gradually acquired the more recent name of natural science. The term scientist was coined by William Whewell in an 1834 evaluation of Mary Somerville's On the Connexion of the Sciences. However the word did not enter general use until nearly the end of the same century.
