Find the value of:

\[x\quad =\quad \frac { \frac { \sqrt [ 3 ]{ a } }{ { a }^{ 2 } } }{ \frac { 1 }{ 4a } } \quad -\quad 1\\ \\ \\ \\ y\quad =\quad \frac { \frac { \sqrt [ 3 ]{ x } \quad +\quad 1 }{ { x }\quad +\quad 1 } }{ \frac { x }{ 1 } \quad +\quad 1 } \quad +\quad 1\]

If a = 8.

Then what is \[{ |-x-y| }^{ 0 }\]
