Nickname for Wakanosato coined by Mike and Kenji. Wakanosato measures the performance of the other sanyaku rikishi each basho. If a rikishi loses to Wakanosato, he is not performing well enough to yusho. This formula held true from the time Wakanosato entered the Makuuchi division until the 2003 Haru basho when Wakanosato beat Chiyotaikai, who later took the yusho at 12-3.
An instrument used to measure atmospheric pressure. There are two main types: aneroid and mercury. The aneroid barometer makes us of a small sealed chamber connected to a pointer mechanism. Mercury barometers use a glass tube filled with mercury and inverted over a mercury-filled chamber. Normally, the atmosphere at sea level can support the column of mercury to 29.92 inches. An aneroid barometer is calibrated so that its pointer reads the pressure as inches of mercury, too.
An instrument used to measure atmospheric pressure. The mercury barometer was the barometer of choice in Isaac Cline's day. It is still in wide use today. It consists of an inverted glass tube resting in a pool of mercury. Pressure forces the mercury in the pool downward, which causes mercury inside the tube to rise and fall in response to changes in the pressure outside of the tube.
An instrument used to measure atmospheric pressure. A standard mercury barometer has a glass column about 30 inches long, closed at one end, with a mercury-filled reservoir. Mercury in the tube adjusts until the weight of the mercury column balances the atmospheric force exerted on the reservoir. High atmospheric pressure forces the mercury higher in the column. Low pressure allows the mercury to drop to a lower level in the column. An aneroid barometer uses a small, flexible metal box called an aneroid cell. The box is tightly sealed after some of the air is removed, so that small changes in external air pressure cause the cell to expand or contract.
A barometer is a device that measures air (barometric) pressure. It measures the weight of the column of air that extends from the instrument to the top of the atmosphere. There are two types of commonly-used barometers, mercury and aneroid (meaning "fluidless") . Early water barometers (also known as "storm glasses") date from the 17th century. The mercury barometer was invented by the Italian physicist Evangelista Torricelli (1608 - 1647), a pupil of Galileo, in 1643. Toricelli inverted a glass tube filled with mercury into another container of mercury; the mercury in the tube "weighs" the air in the atmosphere above the tube. The aneroid barometer (using a spring balance instead of a liquid) was invented by the French scientist Lucien Vidie in 1844.
A barometer is a device that measures air (barometric) pressure. It measures the weight per square inch of the column of air that extends from the instrument to the top of the atmosphere. Falling barometeric pressure usually means that a storm is coming.
To see a barometer in a dream, foretells a change will soon take place in your affairs, which will prove profitable to you. If it is broken, you will find displeasing incidents in your business, arising unexpectedly.
