@MeasurementBlues: I could write a song about that.

Please don't.

PS Have you heard that definition of a gentleman? It's someone who knows how to play the bagpipes... but doesn't :-)

Safari Suits

As David has mentioned, it could be hot in Southern Africa and wearing shorts was perfectly acceptable in many environments along with an open shirt neck (no tie). At one point in the 70s/80s there was an attempt to formalize the dress in what was called a "safari suit". The link doesn't really capture the african version I am talking about and I can't seem to find any other suitable pictures.

There was no belt (which the link sometimes hints to) and the shorts were about mid-thigh length. Also you wore long socks (to about 3/4 calf) and (often mocked by comedians) a comb tucked into the top of one of the socks.

Those aspiring to elegance (or trying to hide a trachiotomy) would wear a cravat.

 People welcomed the rain because it cleared out the pollution.

One of the things I remember most about Taiwan was that on the hills alongside the motorway there were these huge water channels made of concrete up and down the mountains. They were everywhere. When it rains in Taiwan it must really RAIN, or am I misinterpreting the structures.

The pollution is, I am sure, much better now in Taipei/Taiwan. I lived in Beijing in 1996/97, which was pretty bad. I lived in Los Angeles, well I was four or five at the time, during the mid-1970s; that was not a particularly good time for pollution there.

@William, the one time I was in Taipei was the last week of December, 1988. People welcomed the rain because it cleared out the pollution. Hopefully, things are better now.

@Martin

It definitely is cool during the winter months in Taiwan and especially rainy in the north (Taipei), not to mention very humid.

@Karen I would go for light, breathable fabrics like linen, which is one of my favorites. Do keep in mind that it is fairly humid in Taiwan. When exactly would you be coming to Taiwan?

Ok, here are some real world examples of professional Thai women in Bangkok (all are safe for work):

Notes: I assume they are working women (not students or shop-a-holics) because they have badges.  I also assume that the photographer selected them for their style, age etc, and they may not be typical.  And I know what my wife would say: "I'm too old to dress like that (at least if you're around)"

Finally, since this is a serious research project, note that none of them appear to be wearing any wearable electronics such as Pebble smart watches....

I'm north of Boston, Massachusetts USA. The kilt was either an Amerikilt (from http://amerikilt.com) or a homemade lightweight summer kilt.

michigan0 Sang Kim First, 28nm bulk is in volume manufacturing for several years by the major semiconductor companies but not 28nm FDSOI today yet. Why not? Simply because unlike 28nm bulk the LDD(Lightly Doped Drain) to minimize hot carrier generation can't be implemented in 28nm FDSOI. Furthermore, hot carrier reliability becomes worse with scaling, That is the major reason why 28nm FDSOI is not manufacturable today and will not be. Second, how can you suppress the leakage currents from such ultra short 7nm due to the short channel effects? How thin SOI thickness is required to prevent punch-through of un-dopped 7nm FDSOI? Possibly less than 4nm. Depositing such an ultra thin film less then 4nm filum uniformly and reliably over 12" wafers at the manufacturing line is extremely difficult or not even manufacturable. If not manufacturable, the 7nm FDSOI debate is over!Third, what happens when hot carriers are generated near the drain at normal operation of 7nm FDSOI? Electrons go to the positively biased drain with no harm but where the holes to go? The holes can't go to the substrate because of the thin BOX layer. Some holes may become trapped at the BOX layer causing Vt shift. However, the vast majority of holes drift through the the un-dopped SOI channel toward the N+Source,...
