Since introducing its “Jive Engage” social networking platform to the business world five years ago, however, the company itself has yet to earn a dime.
“Apparently, there is inherent value in any software company that has the word ‘social’ included in their business summary,” a contributor marveled back when Jive first escaped from the powerful forces of gravity. (And) what will happen once the FB hysteria settles down?
Locks are used to make a river more easily navigable, or to allow a canal to cross land that is not level.
Later canals used more and larger locks to allow a more direct route to be taken.
A journey heading south will take you to the City of Corner Brook on the west coast, a sizeable hub of activity just five minutes away from the world-class ski resort, Marble Mountain.
At Marble, you'll find yourself standing at the base of a 1,700-foot vertical drop that receives an average 16 feet of annual, natural snowfall.
You'll find Gros Morne National Park here, a UNESCO World Heritage Site stretching across 1,805 square kilometres, encompassing the towering Long Range Mountains and the unique Tablelands.
The park offers more than 100 kilometres of hiking trails, many passing through fascinating rock formations thrown up from the earth's core due to tectonic upheaval.
The distinguishing feature of a lock is a fixed chamber in which the water level can be varied; whereas in a caisson lock, a boat lift, or on a canal inclined plane, it is the chamber itself (usually then called a caisson) that rises and falls.Pound locks were first used in medieval China during the Song Dynasty (960–1279 AD), having been pioneered by the government official and engineer Qiao Weiyue in 984.The distance between the two locks was rather more than 50 paces, and the whole space was covered with a great roof like a shed.Since 2016 the largest lock worldwide is the Kieldrecht Lock in the Port of Antwerp, Belgium.A pound lock is a type of lock that is used almost exclusively nowadays on canals and rivers.” If recent history serves as any guide, the answer could prove quite scary.
