o Je krimpt tot een grootte van een dubbeltje en wordt in een blender gegooid. De blender zal binnen een minuut worden aangezet. Wat doet je? o Je zet een glas met water op een grammofoon en geleidelijk begint die steeds sneller te draaien. Wat gebeurt er als eerst: het glas glijdt ervan af, het glas valt om of het water valt eruit? o Je krijgt een blok kaas en een mes. Hoeveel keer moet je de kaas snijden, zodat je 27 kleine, gelijke blokjes hebt? o Hoeveel hele getallen tussen de 1 en 1.000 bevatten een 3? o Op een verlaten snelweg is de kans dat er een auto langskomt binnen 30 minuten 95%. Hoe hoog is de kans dat er een auto langskomt binnen 10 minuten? o Leg aan je neefje van acht jaar uit wat een database is en gebruik hiervoor 3 zinnen. Dit zijn vragen die je gesteld kunnen worden als je bij Google - of een willekeurig ander bedrijf in de dotcom economy - solliciteert. Ben jij slim genoeg om bij Google te werken? loodst je langs verrassende antwoorden op tientallen van de meest uitdagende vragen die op je afgevuurd kunnen worden tijdens een sollicitatiegesprek.

Britain s War Machine

Author: David Edgerton
Publisher: Oxford University Press
ISBN: 9780199911509
Release Date: 2011-09-09
Genre: History

The familiar image of the British in the Second World War is that of the plucky underdog taking on German might. David Edgerton's bold, compelling new history shows the conflict in a new light, with Britain as a very wealthy country, formidable in arms, ruthless in pursuit of its interests, and in command of a global production system. Rather than belittled by a Nazi behemoth, Britain arguably had the world's most advanced mechanized forces. It had not only a great empire, but allies large and small. Edgerton shows that Britain fought on many fronts and its many home fronts kept it exceptionally well supplied with weapons, food and oil, allowing it to mobilize to an extraordinary extent. It created and deployed a vast empire of machines, from the humble tramp steamer to the battleship, from the rifle to the tank, made in colossal factories the world over. Scientists and engineers invented new weapons, encouraged by a government and prime minister enthusiastic about the latest technologies. The British, indeed Churchillian, vision of war and modernity was challenged by repeated defeat at the hands of less well-equipped enemies. Yet the end result was a vindication of this vision. Like the United States, a powerful Britain won a cheap victory, while others paid a great price. Putting resources, machines and experts at the heart of a global rather than merely imperial story, Britain's War Machine demolishes timeworn myths about wartime Britain and gives us a groundbreaking and often unsettling picture of a great power in action.
