The heat-affected zone (HAZ) is the area of base material, either a metal or a thermoplastic, which is not melted and has had its microstructure and properties altered by welding or heat intensive cutting operations. The heat from the welding process and subsequent re-cooling causes this change from the weld interface to the termination of the sensitizing temperature in the base metal. The extent and magnitude of property change depends primarily on the base material, the weld filler metal, and the amount and concentration of heat input by the welding process.

-There were two reported deaths during the Woodstock festival of 1969. There were also two recorded births.
-The origin of the phrase "it's raining cats and dogs" is believed to be during Victorian England. Cats and dogs tended to walk across the roofs of the interconnected townhouses. Torrential downpours would often wash them right off.
-Spam was a staple of many of the Allied army's diets during World War 2. Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev wrote in his autobiography, “Without Spam, we wouldn’t have been able to feed our army.”
-Albert Einstein was offered presidency of Israel. He turned it down, saying he didn't have a head for human problems.
"I am deeply moved by the offer from our State of Israel [to serve as President], and at once saddened and ashamed that I cannot accept it. All my life I have dealt with objective matters, hence I lack both the natural aptitude and the experience to deal properly with people and to exercise official functions. For these reasons alone I should be unsuited to fulfill the duties of that high office, even if advancing age was not making increasing inroads on my strength. I am the more distressed over these circumstances because my relationship to the Jewish people has become my strongest human bond, ever since I became fully aware of our precarious situation among the nations of the world."
Mr. Peabody and Sherman is the fourth film based on the Rocky and Bullwinkle franchise. The previous three were Boris and Natasha (1992), Dudley Do-Right (1999), and The Adventures of Rocky & Bullwinkle (2000). This is also the first fully animated film among those entries.

It's quite possible that the word "dumbass" originates from 2 Peter 2:16 in the King James Bible (1612):
"[B]ut was rebuked for his iniquity: the dumb ass speaking with man's voice forbad the madness of the prophet."
Either that or from Red Foreman in the 60s.
The liver is the only human internal organ capable of natural regeneration of lost tissue; as little as 25% of a liver can regenerate into a whole liver. This is, however, not true regeneration but rather compensatory growth in mammals. The lobes that are removed do not regrow and the growth of the liver is a restoration of function, not original form. This contrasts with true regeneration where both original function and form are restored. In some other species, such as fish, the liver undergoes true regeneration by restoring both shape and size of the organ. In liver, large areas of the tissues are formed but for the formation of new cells there must be sufficient amount of material so the circulation of the blood becomes more active.
The term "glue-laminated" wood, or "glulam", refers to construction in which a wood member, either straight or curved, is formed by assembling a set of boards or plank with glue so that the grain of all laminations is essentially parallel to the length of the member.
