  List of Poles - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
This is a partial list of famous Polish or Polish-speaking/writing persons, or persons born in other countries, which are now Poland, or on historically Polish soil.
This list has been subject to dispute as to which persons may properly be listed as Poles, due to Polish terrorities having been at various times occupied by foreign countries, and due to the spirited discussions, in recent years, of ethnic identity in the United States, Canada, the Americas, Europe, Asia, Oceania and Africa.
This list is incomplete; you can help by expanding it.

 ::: American Indians of the Pacific Northwest Collection :::
The figures carved on Northwest Coast poles generally represent ancestors and supernatural beings that were once encountered by the ancestors of the lineage, who thereby acquired the right to represent them as crests, symbols of their identity, and records of their history.
This pole was damaged by fire in Pioneer Square in 1938, and a replica was carved by a group of Tlingit carvers from Ketchikan as part of a Civilian Conservation Corps project.
Poles were often "copied," that is, new versions were commissioned when new houses were built, or when members of the family married and moved to other villages.

 Poles Exposed As Killers Of Jews In WWII Holocaust Event - Not Nazis
The Jedwabne pogrom began in the morning as the Poles, of whom 92 are named in written accounts, sought out and killed small groups of Jews hiding in buildings, in fields and in the streets.
The lives of those Poles who felt the guilt of being helpless witnesses to atrocity were marked by a deep trauma, which surfaces with each new debate about anti-Semitism, Polish-Jewish relations and the Holocaust.
Polish public opinion is rarely united, but almost all Poles react very sharply when confronted with the charge that Poles get their anti-Semitism with their mothers' milk and with accusations of their complicity in the Shoah.

She wrote of hundreds of thousands of Jews in the Warsaw ghetto awaiting death without hope of rescue and how the entire world -- England, America, Jews overseas and Poles -- was silent.
It is a serious debate, full of sadness and sometimes terror -- as if the whole society was suddenly forced to carry the weight of this terrible 60-year-old crime; as if all Poles were made to admit their guilt collectively and ask for forgiveness.
The Polish primate, the Polish president and the Rabbi of Warsaw said almost in one voice that a tribute to the Jedwabne victims should serve the cause of reconciling Poles and Jews in the truth.

The Lenz's law in electromagnetism is a statement that an induced electric current flows in a direction such that the current opposes the change that induced it.
Thrusting a pole of a permanent bar magnet through a coil of wire, for example, induces an electric current in the coil; the current in turn sets up a magnetic field around the coil, making it a magnet.
Upon withdrawing the bar magnet from the coil, the induced current reverses itself, and the near side of the coil becomes a south pole to produce an attracting force on the receding bar magnet.
