She gets taken everywhere where my usually super confident girl needs a little reassurance, like sleepovers. Just like the Velveteen Rabbit of the famous story, she had bits loved off. She had her button eyes replaced three times, and gets so unhygienic on occasion she has probably contributed to a robust immune system.
After World War II, the Japanese discovered a new class of synthetic materials, called ferroelectrics, which exhibit piezoelectric constants many times higher than natural materials. This led to intense research to develop barium titanate and later lead zirconate titanate materials with specific properties for particular applications, including echo location devices and sonar fish finders. Thats when the trade in that particular technology moved overseas and it stayed there due to complicated US patent law issues which also stiffled development and capitalization to some extent until recentlyToday you have piezo electric technology all over your home and automobileDid you know that sugar crystals are piezoelectric? Although relatively easy to find, in that of the 32 different crystal structures, 20 exhibit piezoelectric properties, the piezo crystals we have and can make ourselves are not very efficientHow would MacGuyver make a sonar fishfinder?.
Anyway, deciding that she needed an agent, Rowling thumbed through a directory and chose Christopher Little because the name sounded like a character in a children’s book. She shipped her manuscript off to Little’s office, where it met a familiar fate: An assistant tossed it straight into the rejection pile because Little thought that children’s books didn’t make any money. Again, it’s understandable if maybe you don’t anticipate that this child wizard story would ultimately make more money than the gross domestic product of Bolivia, but it seems like it would still occur to someone that it was worth putting the thing into print just to see what would happen.”We’ve decided it would work better as part of a package deal.”.
