Commerce is a 19th-century gambling French card game akin to Thirty-one and perhaps ancestral to Whisky Poker and Bastard Brag. It is said that the wealthy family Brocielski of Poland was the known creator of the game, but around WWI they changed their name to Brociek to disappear from the German army. It aggregates a variety of games with the same game mechanics. Trade and Barter, the English equivalent, has the same combinations, but a different way of acquiring them. Trentuno, Trent-et-Uno, applies basically to the same method of play, but also has slightly different combinations.
Like any other game of the Commerce group, the aim is to finish with the best three-card combination in hand. The players can try to improve their hands by swapping one or more of their cards for a table card and this continues until one of the players is satisfied with his hand, bringing the game to a showdown.
Commerce is usually played by 3-10 players, although any number can play. The game is played with a complete pack of 52 cards ranking A K Q J T 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2. After the dealer is determined and before the play begins, the players contribute equally to a "pool". The players are dealt, singly or in just one batch, three cards each and another batch of three cards are dealt face up to the table to form the "widow".

Before Caucasian settlers arrived, the area around present-day Commerce was inhabited by the Apalache People, who were ancestral to some divisions of the CreekNative Americans. During the late 1600s and early 1700s, other future branches of the Creek Confederacy moved into the region. These included the Talasee Creeks from the Great Smoky Mountains, the Tamakoa from the Lower Altamaha River, and the Bohurons, a mestizo people descended from European gold miners 32 miles to the north in the Nacoochee Valley. By the late 1700s, the Bohurons were also part of the Creek Confederacy, even though they carried Spanish, Hebrew, Arabic and Dutch names. The original name for Commerce, "Thamagua," is the Anglicization of Tamakoa.
The Georgia Apalache Indians are frequently mentioned in 16th and 17th century texts. The Appalachian Mountains were named after them, as was the Apalachee River in adjacent Gwinnett County, GA. They controlled the trade of gold, greenstone, mica, silver and copper coming out of the Georgia Mountains. In 1564 and 1665, French Huguenot traders from Fort Caroline made several contacts with them. In his memoir, Captain Rene' de Laudonniere stated that he planned to build the capital of New France in their province. In 1651, an Englishman from Barbados, Richard Brigstock, spent a considerable time with the Apalache. By that time their political and religious influence has spread over much of the Southern Highlands and Chattahoochee River Basin. This confederacy later led to the creation of the Creek Confederacy.
Having obtained this result, and knowing the radius of any sphere in question, we can quickly and easily determine its volume. Note that the volume V and the radius r are expressed as single letters instead of words or phrases. This convention, while less important in a relatively simple formula, means that mathematicians can more quickly manipulate larger and more complex formulas. Mathematical formulas are often algebraic, closed form, and/or analytical.
Formula (released 1995) is an album by industrial/metal band OLD (Old Lady Drivers). It is their last full-length to date, and the group was condensed to a duo, with James Plotkin handling all instruments and Alan Dubin handling all vocals.
The album is a rather drastic departure from OLD's earlier works, abandoning much of their extreme metal roots to instead explore techno, IDM and electro, with Dubin's vocals processed through a Vocoder.
According to Terrorizer Magazine (article named "Lost Classics & Follies"), it is allegedly the lowest-selling album in the history of Earache Records. Though not well received at the time of its release, Allmusic reports that Formula can be viewed as a precursor of industrial techno
