Flying Boat
A FLYING BOAT is a fixed-winged seaplane with a hull , allowing it to land on water, that usually has no type of landing gear to allow operation on land. It differs from a floatplane as it uses a purpose-designed fuselage which can float , granting the aircraft buoyancy . Flying boats may be stabilized by under-wing floats or by wing-like projections (called sponsons ) from the fuselage. Flying boats were some of the largest aircraft of the first half of the 20th century, exceeded in size only by bombers developed during World War II. Their advantage lay in using water instead of expensive land-based runways, making them the basis for international airlines in the interwar period . They were also commonly used for maritime patrol and air-sea rescue . Their use gradually trailed off after World War II, partially because of the investments in airports during the war

Net Income
In business , NET INCOME (TOTAL COMPREHENSIVE INCOME, NET EARNINGS, NET PROFIT, informally, BOTTOM LINE) is an entity's income minus cost of goods sold , expenses and taxes for an accounting period . It is computed as the residual of all revenues and gains over all expenses and losses for the period, and has also been defined as the net increase in shareholders\' equity that results from a company's operations. In the context of the presentation of financial statements , the IFRS Foundation defines net income as synonymous with PROFIT AND LOSS. Net income is a distinct accounting concept from profit but the same as net profit. Net income can also be calculated by adding a company's operating income to non-operating income and then subtracting off taxes

Asset
In financial accounting , an ASSET is an economic resource. Anything tangible or intangible that can be owned or controlled to produce value and that is held by a company to produce positive economic value is an asset. Simply stated, assets represent value of ownership that can be converted into cash (although cash itself is also considered an asset). The balance sheet of a firm records the monetary value of the assets owned by that firm. It covers money and other valuables belonging to an individual or to a business . One can classify assets into two major asset classes: tangible assets and intangible assets . Tangible assets contain various subclasses, including current assets and fixed assets . Current assets include inventory , while fixed assets include such items as buildings and equipment . Intangible assets are nonphysical resources and rights that have a value to the firm because they give the firm some kind of advantage in the marketplace

Argentine
ARGENTINES, also known via circumlocution as ARGENTINIANS (Spanish : _argentinos_), are the citizens of the Argentine Republic , or their descendants abroad. Argentina is a multiethnic society , which means that it is home to people of many different ethnic backgrounds. As a result, Argentines do not consider their nationality as an ethnicity but as a citizenship with various ethnicities. Aside from the Indigenous population, nearly all Argentines or their ancestors immigrated within the past five centuries. In fact, among countries in the world that have received the most immigrants in modern history, Argentina, with 6.6 million, ranks second to the United States (27 million), and ahead of other immigrant destinations such as Canada, Brazil, and Australia
