A Slavic and Ashkenazic Jewish surname meaning "new" (e.g., "Novy"), "Nov-ak" could also be a play on "Nov akh" or "frutiful brother" (Hebrew).
Bearers of the "Novak" surname include actress Kim Novak (who took "Novak" as her stagename), columnist and cancer victim Robert Novak, the psychotic astronaut and honorably-discharged Navy servicewoman Lisa Nowak, and Marysia "Maria" Novakova Rusnakova (1855-c. 1907) -- who was married to Jakub Rusnak (a member of the late Kosice, Slovakia Jewish Rusnaks) and was the paternal grandmother of Sgt. and Veterans of Foreign Wars Commander Carl Stephen Rusnak (January 2, 1922 - November 7, 1999; US Army, WW2, European Theater, honorably discharged after the war). By the way, Maria's relative Leopold Novak was an early victim of the Holocaust in then-Czechoslovakian Zlata Idka: he was murdered in a then-Aranydka mine in 1936.

A literal IV drip filled with caffeine. Apparently, a caffeine drip is not a joke.
I myself can't quit caffeine. I was in withdrawal so badly during surgery that I could not hold down even water as much. They literally had to hook me up to a caffeine drip. The drip rate was two hours instead of one hour because the nurse did not want to blow out my vein.

"Ethnocide" means "destruction or murder of an ethnic group". It comes from the Greek "έθνος" and the Latin "caedere". In contrast to the more-general term "genocide" (pertaining to a case in which significant numbers of people are murdered, and with "genus" referring to either ethnic, class, or familial distinction), "ethnocide" refers to the specific and targeted destruction of an ethnic group.
The Holocaust was really less of a genocide than it was an ethnocide, since the Nazis (Yemach shemam.) specifically intended to destroy the Jewish ethnic group.

An online encyclopedia, Wikipedia was founded by Jimmy Wales. Meant to be a "free encyclopedia", it has since become a controversial and questionable source of information.
While Wikipedia is good for basic facts, it must be taken with a grain of salt, especially since many of its editors are agenda driven ideologues in one or another way.
