The Y-factor method is a widely used technique for measuring the gain and noise temperature of an amplifier. It is based on the Johnson–Nyquist noise of a resistor at two different, known temperatures. Consider a microwave amplifier with a 50-ohm impedance with a 50-ohm resistor connected to the amplifier input.

Fun fact?!

Zodiac signs were first used for farming (The zodiac system began as an agricultural calendar. Ancient farmers used the positions of the constellations in the sky to determine the right time to sow and harvest. Evidence suggests that this practice dates back thousands of years in the civilisations along the Nile and Euphrates Rivers. For example, farmers checked the moon’s location relative to the constellation. If the moon was in the constellation of any of the Water Signs (Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces), they would plant leafy annuals, shrubs and trees. If the moon was in the Earth Signs (Virgo, Capricorn and Taurus), they would plant underground crops)

Altitude disrupts sleep. Due to lower amounts of oxygen at altitudes of 13,200 feet or higher, it’s much harder to get your snooze on. Be careful next time you’re visiting the Rocky Mountains

Round 3 ...

Bananas grow upside-down. Or technically, we peel them upside-down. Naturally, they grow outward from their stems, but that means their bottoms actually face the sky. As they get bigger, the fruits turn toward the sun, forming that distinctive curve.

Cats are afraid of cucumbers

There are a few theories, but no definitive answer. Most experts agree that it isn’t necessarily the cucumber itself that scares cats. One of the most popular explanations is that cucumbers remind cats of snakes. “Cats are genetically hard-wired through instinct to avoid snakes,”

Easter Island Heads have bodies.

The iconic stone heads protruding from the ground on Easter Island are familiar to most, but many don't realize what lies beneath the surface. In the '10s, archaeologists studying the hundreds of stone statues on the Pacific Island excavated two of the figures, revealing full torsos, which measure as high as 33 feet.

Flamingos are only pink because of the food they eat (young flamingos flaunt grey/white color feathers and only develop their pinkish hue after delving into a diet of brine shrimp and blue-green algae – food that would likely kill other animals. “Flamingos tend to live in inhospitable, relatively remote wetlands – lakes so alkaline in pH it could burn human flesh off the bones)

Glitter was first made on a ranch

A cattle rancher in New Jersey is credited for inventing glitter, and it was by accident. Henry Ruschmann from Bernardsville, New Jersey was a machinist who crushed plastic while trying to find a way to dispose of it and thus made glitter in 1934

Hermitage Museum is "guarded" by cats (The Hermitage cats are a group of cats residing in the Hermitage Museum in Saint Petersburg, Russia. The museum has a press secretary dedicated to the cats, and three people act as caretakers. The cats live in the museum's basement, and they also appear on the embankment and on the square during the summer. In previous eras they roamed throughout the museum galleries. The cats were present in the museum, originally a palace, since the 18th century; in 1745, Elizabeth of Russia ordered cats to be placed in the palace in order to control the mice)

Funny story................On Monday (5-17) I was at work and a few residents were sitting at a table with one of our activity aides. They were learning about and tasting some foods from Russia. Later when I walked by, the activity aide was doing trivia about Russia and one of the things she brought up was the Hermitage cats. After the group was done I went and told the aide about our Alphabet Game and our recent topic and thanked her for the "tip".
