The duration of a job may range from temporary (e.g., hourly odd jobs) to a lifetime (e.g., judges ). An activity that requires a person's mental or physical effort is work (as in "a day's work"). If a person is trained for a certain type of job, they may have a profession . Typically, a job would be a subset of someone's career .

Massive Retaliation
MASSIVE RETALIATION, also known as a MASSIVE RESPONSE or MASSIVE DETERRENCE, is a military doctrine and nuclear strategy in which a state commits itself to retaliate in much greater force in the event of an attack. CONTENTS * 1 Strategy * 2 History * 3 Criticism * 4 Effects * 5 Policy shift * 6 See also * 7 References * 8 External links STRATEGY Main article: Assured destruction In the event of an attack from an aggressor, a state would massively retaliate by using a force disproportionate to the size of the attack. The aim of massive retaliation is to deter another state from initially attacking. For such a strategy to work, it must be made public knowledge to all possible aggressors. The aggressor also must believe that the state announcing the policy has the ability to maintain second-strike capability in the event of an attack
