This statement is attributed to Joseph Smith, Jr., first President of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (often called the "Mormon church" due to their usage of the Book of Mormon which is a history of Christians in the New World). While the statement that "the Constitution will hang by a thread" is accepted as being said by Joseph Smith (cited by Brigham Young, John Taylor, Orson Hyde and several others, see the gray box at the bottom of this page for further examples and citationshttp:/ It is sometimes quoted in relation to the "White Horse Prophecy" which talks about how events will transpire when the Constitution hangs by a thread. However, Bruce R. McConkie and President Joseph F. Smith have both said that the White Horse Prophecy is a fabrication.

What is the name of the method used to schedule a thread for execution?

"start" You've created a Thread object and it knows its target. Now it's time to get the whole thread thing running. It's pretty straight forward: t.start(); Prior to calling start() on a Thread instance, the thread (when we use lowercase t, we're referring to the thread of execution rather than the Thread class) is said to be in the new state as we said. The new state means you have a Thread object but you don't yet have a true thread. So what happens after you call start()? • A new thread of execution starts (with a new call stack). • The thread moves from the new state to the runnable state. • When the thread gets a chance to execute, its target run() method will run.
