As such, it believes that containers are the best carrier for NFV transformation. ZTE says that container-based cloud native applications will become the trend for communications technology applications. However, the native Kubernetes network model used in the IT industry is too simple to meet telco service requirements. It was the first time that this product was introduced in North America. There are benefits to open-source software. A company might want to take advantage of a certain innovation right away without a fee attached or not want to be locked into a contract with another technology company.
Many publishers flocked to Prebid. This update is quite prominent for introducing a new network stack for the operating system as well as bettering the security, adding a new web browser, ACPI power improvements, and more.
Proposals are being accepted through April 29th. As the leading technical conference for professional open source, Open Source Summit gathers developers, sysadmins, DevOps professionals, architects and community members from across the globe for education and collaboration across the ecosystem. This year, DevConf is expanding with the inaugural DevConf.
It is targeted at developers, system administrators, DevOps engineers, testers, documentation writers and other contributors to open source technologies. Using these reports, we have managed to remove a good amount of code from mozilla-central, so far around 60 files with thousands of lines of code.
As any modern software, Firefox relies a lot on third party libraries. As soon as we discover a critical issue in Firefox, we plan a rapid mitigation. This post will describe how we fixed a Pwn2Own exploit discovery in less than 22 hours, through the collaborative and well-coordinated efforts of a global cross-functional team of release and QA engineers, security experts, and other stakeholders.
Pwn2Own is an annual computer hacking contest. The goal of this event is to find security vulnerabilities in major software such as browsers. Last week, this event took place in Vancouver. Without getting into technical details of the exploit here, this blog post will describe how Mozilla responded quickly to ship updated builds of Firefox once an exploit was found during Pwn2Own.
Mozilla is accepting applications for its — Internet Fellowships: Applications are due April 20, at 5pm EDT. More importantly, they are both examples of NoSQL databases. NoSQL is a type of database architecture in which data is stored in a relatively unstructured fashion.
Compared to more traditional SQL-style databases, NoSQL can be a more efficient way of storing the large quantities of unstructured data that organizations commonly use for big data operations. MongoDB and Cassandra are also both open source — although commercial implementations are available, too. But even in that respect, they are not identical. According to WatchGuard Technologies, attacks on Linux devices are on the rise this year.
Reading through student proposals for Google Summer of Code yesterday, I took a break from sitting in front of a keyboard to get some gardening done. The other is documentation. These are practices which are seen as not fun, not creative. Nor is hunting and digging the wily dandelion. But I rake away the dead branches and fir cones, and snag those dandelions because later in the season, my healthy vegetables and beautiful flowers not only flourish without weeds, but look better without litter around them.
In addition, we chop up the branches and cones, and use that as mulch, which saves water and keeps down weeds. The dandelions go into the compost pile and rot into richer soil to help transplants be healthy. In other words, the work I do now pays off in the future. In the wake of a Tempe, Arizona woman being struck and killed by an Uber autonomous vehicle, there has been a flurry of information coming out about the incident. Shortly after the crash, the Tempe Police Chief went on the record suggesting that the victim had at least some culpability in the incident, having walked outside of the designated crosswalk and that the entire thing would have been difficult for either human or AI to avoid.
As many of us in the DevOps scene know, most companies are hiring, or, at least, trying to do so. The required skills and job descriptions can change entirely from company to company.
Currently in high-demand is knowledge of container orchestration. You know that already, of course. By contrast, the trainers said, girls are innately programmed to do well in our classrooms.
The instructors encouraged us to create gender-specific environments and lessons. Face-to-face seating is appropriate for girls but will promote conflict in boys; bright lights and strong teacher voices facilitate male learning but will elicit a stress response in females; boys learn best through competitive, dynamic games, but girls flourish in a more collaborative setting.
They claimed our classroom structure was the primary cause of behavioral and scholastic problems among male students, and this could be remedied by adjusting our academic climate to be more beneficial to boys. Going back to early , I was working for Los Alamos National Labs as a contractor systems administrator.
Instead, I worked with a large number of similarly uncleared post-docs, graduate students, and college interns in a strip mall converted into offices. The offices ran from nearly one end of the strip mall to the other with a large selection of Unix, PC, and Mac systems spread through the building connected together with 10base2 or thin-wire. The first problem I had to deal with was my most of the systems would crash at different times during the day. I got a Digital network book my Dad had given me, and learned about common problems with networking as this was not something I had dealt with before.
I found that the local network was connected to a T1 which ran back to the main campus about 2 miles away.
The T1 went to a hub which had 7 thin-wire lines running out of it. That seemed fine until I traced the thin-wire out. I was worried there were bad connectors there were or kinks in the line there were but the real problem was that out of the 7 thin-wire lines 3 were used. Most of the systems were on one line. The other lines were just laying under the carpets not used. I met with my new boss Dale, and showed him what I had found.
I learned a lot from Dale. He got me a copy of the Unix System Administrators Handbook and told me to start reading it on networks. Now, we have another case of servers exposed online and fulfilling evil intentions of the hackers. This time, thousands of etcd servers maintained by corporates and organizations are spitting sensitive passwords and encrypted keys, allowing anyone to get access to important data. Security researcher Giovanni Collazo was able to harvest passwords, AWS access keys, 23 secret keys, and 8 private keys.
From an application security perspective databases are the most valuable parts of our systems. They store the data that gives value to our apps and companies. This data which has been entrusted to us by our users should be kept safe and away of the hands of criminals.
Thousands of servers operated by businesses and other organizations are openly sharing credentials that may allow anyone on the Internet to log in and read or modify potentially sensitive data stored online.
In a blog post published late last week, researcher Giovanni Collazo said a quick query on the Shodan search engine returned almost 2, Internet-exposed servers running etcd, a type of database that computing clusters and other types of networks use to store and distribute passwords and configuration settings needed by various servers and applications. The passwords, encryption keys, and other forms of credentials are used to access MySQL and PostgreSQL databases, content management systems, and other types of production servers.
The intent of the sanctions is clear: Shireen Al-Adeimi is a doctoral candidate at Harvard University. But she is having a hard time focusing on her studies, when friends and family back home in Yemen are under violent attack by the heavily armed, US-backed Saudi forces, with many going hungry as a result of the Saudi blockade.
Despite the dire humanitarian crisis, however, the United States continues to sell arms to the Saudis and provide them with military support. Russian political punk group Pussy Riot, of course, were waiting for the predictable victory with a fierce response. I knew and had published from my own whistleblowers that this is a lie. Until now I could not prove it.
But today I can absolutely prove it, due to the judgement at the High Court case which gave permission for new blood samples to be taken from the Skripals for use by the OPCW. Justice Williams included in his judgement a summary of the evidence which tells us, directly for the first time, what Porton Down have actually said:. Seth was shot to death about a block from where he lived in the Bloomingdale neighborhood of Washington, DC, on July 10, Police never found the killer.
Here we characterise and quantify a major ocean plastic accumulation zone formed in subtropical waters between California and Hawaii: Our model, calibrated with data from multi-vessel and aircraft surveys, predicted at least 79 45— thousand tonnes of ocean plastic are floating inside an area of 1. We explain this difference through the use of more robust methods to quantify larger debris.
Plastic collected during our study has specific characteristics such as small surface-to-volume ratio, indicating that only certain types of debris have the capacity to persist and accumulate at the surface of the GPGP. Finally, our results suggest that ocean plastic pollution within the GPGP is increasing exponentially and at a faster rate than in surrounding waters. Rescuers faced a race against time to save dozens of short-finned pilot whales on Friday after more than got stranded on an Australian beach.
Authorities and volunteers were trying to save about 50 still alive on the beach and a further 25 in shallow waters. Warren Buffett, the most successful investor of our time, is a huge fan of low-cost index funds — funds that replicate a market index rather than try to outperform it — as the way for the average investor to succeed in the stock market.
Perhaps surprisingly for a former UN ambassador and State Department official, John Bolton thinks more often than not that military action, not diplomacy, is the answer. President Donald Trump announced on Thursday that he was replacing his national security adviser, Army Lt.
McMaster, with Bolton, who in recent years has been more known as a Fox News analyst,. Many lawmakers and former officials have long expressed alarm about Bolton, who Trump spoke of appointing to a top post before he had even won the presidency. Just as the Supreme Court is considering the legality of extraterritorial demands for communications held by US internet service providers in overseas data storage, Congress is doing all it can to short-circuit the debate. If it agrees with Microsoft — as lower courts have — that the US has no right to demand communications stored overseas with a normal warrant, the Act would immediately overturn the decision.
If it decides against Microsoft, it will be aligned with the new law. As it stands now, the route most likely to be taken by the Supreme Court is a punt. Legislation on point is in play and the Court will probably be more than happy to let legislators make the final call.
Beyond the obvious problem of giving US law enforcement permission to use regular warrants to bypass mutual assistance treaties, the law also allows for reciprocation. As we convene to remember the 15th year anniversary of the Iraq War, the fundamental lesson of that war is that our democratic norms are at grave risk when judges and courts fail to hold government leaders accountable for a patently illegal war. I have been researching and writing about that question since soon after the U.
I like chatting with the neighbors in line at my polling place, which is a hallway in the middle school both my sons attended. Voting gives me a voice in the community I deeply care about, occasionally even allowing me to help elect people I know, a local camping-group mom or hockey-team dad running for office.
Also, as a naturalized citizen, this small, fundamental act has come to embody for me the privilege and responsibility of living in our democracy. In the first days of January, a meme spread through Iran.
The same day, Jahromi reposted it on his Instagram account along with the caption: According to the Art Newspaper, the city notified Morris that the work was a zoning violation and that he had to remove it. YouTube has broadened its restrictions on gun-related videos, while thousands of Americans are mobilizing to demand stricter gun controls Saturday in a mass march spurred by young survivors of a deadly armed attack on a Florida high school last month.
Bump stocks and other add-ons that convert guns into automatic-fire weapons are among the accessories covered by the new rules. As Spain continues to expand its anti- speech laws, the rights of its citizens continue to contract. Not content with making it illegal to insult a cop or government officials, the Spanish government has decided to tackle hate speech and terrorism with the same ineptitude. People are being arrested and charged with speech having nothing to with promoting hate or terrorism.
Mathew Ingram has more details at Columbia Journalism Review. This is interesting on multiple levels, since the moral panic against online sites that eventually resulted in SESTA actually did start with Craiglist nearly a decade ago, with various state Attorneys General ganging up on the company — despite no legal basis — even threatening criminal charges. And, as we noted last fall, a recent study showed that when Craigslist shut down its adult section, there was a dramatic increase in homicide, which many attributed to sex workers being unable to use the website to screen clients and protect themselves.
But, either way, the site dropped its adult section entirely all the way back in And, yet, now it realized it must shut its entire personals section, or potentially face crippling criminal liability. After of lobbying from students and teachers, a bill to prevent school administrators from censoring the work of student journalists has became law.
Jay Inslee signed Senate Bill Wednesday in front of a group of students, teachers and school administrators in Olympia. Supreme Court ruling that made it legal for school administrators to censor content in school newspapers and other student-run media.
Now, what tiny space they have left for having fun is increasingly being chipped away. In the final pages of the bill—meant only to appropriate future government spending—lawmakers snuck in a separate piece of legislation that made no mention of funds, salaries, or budget cuts.
Instead, this final, tacked-on piece of legislation will erode privacy protections around the globe. It was never reviewed or marked up by any committee in either the House or the Senate. It never received a hearing. The Senate followed up late that night with a vote in favor. Because of this failure, U. Because of this failure, your private emails, your online chats, your Facebook, Google, Flickr photos, your Snapchat videos, your private lives online, your moments shared digitally between only those you trust, will be open to foreign law enforcement without a warrant and with few restrictions on using and sharing your information.
After the much discussed Cambridge Analytica scandal, Facebook has broken all its ties with the Cambridge University researcher Aleksandr Kogan. A few months before Christopher Wylie helped build Cambridge Analytica, and five years before he helped bring it down, the data scientist had already settled on an ambition: That was October , and Wylie, in his early twenties, was gathering massive amounts of personal data as research director for SCL Group, a contractor that did military and political campaign work.
He was also trying to raise money for his new startup concept — then called Arg. But evil pays more. Alex Stamos, the Facebook executive who plans to leave the company by August amid a backlash over disinformation, has not been one to hold back. He once challenged the National Security Agency director to his face, sparred with the media on Twitter and took his former bosses at Yahoo — and more recently at Facebook — to task over security issues.
Fusion GPS has gotten all the headlines. But there was a second, even more powerful and mysterious opposition research and intelligence firm lurking about with significant political and financial links to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her campaign for president against Donald Trump.
Much of the media spotlight is now on Cambridge Analytica and their shadowy antics in elections worldwide, including that of Donald Trump.
However, Cambridge Analytica is a mere offshoot of Strategic Communication Laboratories SCL Group — an organisation with its roots deeply embedded within the British political, military and royal establishment. Hold on tight to those memories of all the good things the Internet has brought. Ill-informed celebrities, who understood absolutely nothing about the cause they professed to advocate for, pressed their bumper-sticker demands that something be done, even though that something is destructive to the very cause the bumper-stickers were for.
Willfully ignorant members of Congress then bought into the bumper-sticker rhetoric, despite all the evidence they had about how destructive this law would be to those interests and online speech generally. Even frequent innovation ally Senator Wyden joined the chorus mounting against the tech industry, lending credence to the idea that when it came to a law that would undermine the Internet, the Internet had it coming.
Sheriffs across the state take excess money as personal income — and, in the event of a shortfall, are personally liable for covering the gap. Monitors are commonly a condition of pre-trial release, or post-conviction supervision, like probation or parole. They are sometimes a strategy to reduce jail and prison populations. This increasingly wide use of EM by law enforcement remains relatively unchecked. In another life, I was a teacher.
I stood in front of young people, delivering lessons on ethics and morality, as well as math and physics. Now, I am a prisoner. I have not felt fresh air in my lungs or the sun on my face for more than a year. I have not felt safe for years. My troubles began on Sept. I was leading a youth seminar in my hometown of Grand-Riviere-du-Nord, Haiti.
I was mid-discussion on the problem of corruption in Haitian politics when I named a local government official — Benjamin Ocenjac — as an example of someone who works with gangs to terrorize the population.
Men dragged me off my motorcycle and savagely beat me — breaking several bones and leaving me with scars which I bear to this day. They set my motorcycle on fire and threatened to kill me. At Geauga, I have seen other asylum-seekers give up and return to countries where they fled danger because the price of seeking safety — imprisonment for months or years on end — was just too high. I am still fighting. The ACLU and partners filed a class action lawsuit on my behalf as well as for more than a thousand other asylum seekers who are currently locked up across the United States.
We are suing the Department of Homeland Security for depriving us of due process. Authoritarian governments regulate what their citizens can see online. After the first suggested revision of potential treaty articles preventing the misappropriation of genetic resources was sent back to the drawing board this week, the second revision emerged today, for consideration by the World Intellectual Property Organization member states.
Separately, a proposal by the committee chair to establish an expert group to meet prior to the next session of the committee meeting was positively received. Marion Dietterich is the new director of the Global Challenges Division, which includes activities related to broader issues such as health and environment. She follows Anatole Krattiger, who retired from the position at the end of last year. Billy Goat Chip Co. Louis potato chip maker over alleged trademark infringement.

Can't these guys do anything in the normal order? Papar probably is related to the English word pap. However, there are a large number of similar-sounding Germanic and Romance words with closely related meanings, and their interrelationships are unclear. Because of the first Germanic sound shift, IE roots that yielded Latin words beginning in p would have yielded Germanic terms beginning in f, so these separate sources probably don't correspond to a IE common root.
It could also simply be imitative. One of the first articles in the Journal of Irreproducible Results was an analysis some centuries hence of texts uncovered at the archaelogical site called Tel-el-New-York. The texts dated back to the early twentieth century, and reported mysterious doings that were very difficult to understand. Hey -- ornithology or orthography, it's all good. Coincidentally, a few days ago, early in the twenty-first century and late in the second game of the ALDS, a swarm of flies afflicted the New York Yankees as the rival Indians were behind and at bat.
The Indians went ahead in that inning and went on to win. It looked very suspiciously like unscrupulous divine powers had placed some heavy bets on Cleveland. Following Augustine, I believe because it is absurd. The article was reprinted in one of the many collections of selected articles from JIR -- articles in this genre age well -- but it's not in the one I have to hand, which is The Best of the Journal of Irreproducible Results: I suspect that the widespread prejudice against people whose mouths are habitually agape or even those who are frequently slack-jawed and the belief that they are stupid, arise from the fact that they are stupid.
I'd estimate 20 IQ points, at least, separate the average intelligence of the habitually slack-jawed and the habitually closed-jawed. It should be a consolation to people suffering from TMJ. Look, if your nose is stuffed, take a decongestant. The least you can do is pout seductively, with your lips sensually parted.
Of course, you're probably not the sort of person who read all the way down to this paragraph. A Japanese English term wasei eigo pronounced in what would be transliterated from kata kana as peipaa doraibaa. I wonder how your engines feel. Specifically, on the paper of the city plan. Often, maps based on these will show a street that doesn't exist. Two indications of a paper street: Sounds like victory gardens in the war on poverty.
No electrons were killed in the creation of this glossary entry. I can't say the same for brain cells, but aren't brain cells really part of the problem, after all? The word parachute was formed in precisely the same way, but in French. There's a little play in the interpretation or translation of para, but the aguas is definitely a plural noun. See plural nouns in stock Spanish terms.
Details of the meaning are discussed in the final paragraph. The most common spelling is paralipsis. The different spellings arise thus: The next two paragraphs spell this out sorry in greater detail. It happens that the formal diphthong epsilon-iota was regularly rendered as i in Latin transliteration. The earlier pronunciation of epsilon-iota, even restricting the question to the Attic dialect, is a little bit muddled and may include both monophthong and diphthong pronunciations that merged.
Eventually, this and a number of other vowels converged on the sound of iota. It should be noted that the word paraleipsis was not used in Latin until the post-classical period. After all, there was preterition. However, I doubt that confusion between these two Greek words explains the occurrence of the -lepsis spelling in English for the word discussed above paraleipsis.
My guess, based on inadequate research, is that paralipsis became paralepsis in medieval Latin and was borrowed in the latter form into English. Medieval logicians gave us argumentum ad vericundiam -- note the i -- as the name of a standard type of fallacious argument, and theirs is still the much more common spelling. In the case of paralepsis , the reversion to paralipsis was evidently much more successful. The direct transliteration from Greek paraleipsis must also have been part of the more general movement away from indirect borrowing through Latin transliterations.
This movement gained strength through the second half of the nineteenth century, and the relative prevalence of the paraleipsis spelling appears to reflect that.
Of course, in the compound, the second pi in the root combines with first sigma in the suffix so together they are represented by a single letter psi. I pronounce myself done. For a considered usage suggestion, see our entry for the synonymous preterition. This entry's spelling paralepsis dates from the 16th century in English. Judging from the evidence the OED can adduce, it seems to have been the original and standard form, before being supplanted by paralipsis.
This is perhaps a noteworthy achievement, since standardized spelling was not a particular strength of that century. Of the three extant spellings, however, it is also the one that probably enjoys the least etymological justification. Words have feelings about their etymologies, you know. Every year during Golden Week, they journey back to the graves of their etymons among the dead languages.
On top of the heading-stones, they leave small memorial tokens -- grave accents. For more about the etymological progression of spellings, and for less important stuff about the meaning, see the paraleipsis entry. Many faithful readers of the glossary have written in to ask why we don't also mention that guidance on choosing the best synonym to use can be found at the preterition. There's no reason -- we just don't, that's all. For the history of the spelling, see paraleipsis , above.
An horizon is a great circle separating the things seen from those that are out of sight, as one half of the heavens is always plainly visible while another half is always hid. So it seems to us by reason of the great distance of the starry sphere; yet the difference is in the ratio of the earth's semi-diameter to the semi-diameter of the starry heavens--a difference not perceived by the senses. She put them on the mantel To see if they would fall off.
Every month has about a chance in seven of having a Friday the 13th. Over the long term, it would be exactly one seventh if the Gregorian calendar didn't have a periodicity that is an integer number of weeks. It might still be exactly one seventh, but I can't be bothered to compute it, and it's doubtless pretty close. It is unknown when the superstition arose that Friday the 13th is an ill-omened day. If you'd believe that, you would believe that Somehow, out of all the calamitous events of the fourteenth century, this does not seem quite momentous or portentious enough to be the origin.
I think what probably happened is that someone stubbed his toe some Friday the thirteenth, and invented the story that this day was unlucky so he could show off that he could count that high. It sounded like useful information to some people who heard the story -- sort of a poor-man's astrology: It wasn't immediately refutable, so the story spread quickly and became a widely accepted truth -- perhaps occasionally a self-fulfilling prophecy.
See by what vehicle you may escape. You say you want to know what the heck it means , already? Oh sure, check out the asyndeton entry. Pardieu A surname based on an Old French oath. On October 18, , Prof. The similarity of the Greek words apparently reflects the similarity of the two animals' colors. Corominas y Pascual acknowledge the possibility that for the unlearned, the false analysis based on leo pardus is natural, but the evidence is at least equally consistent with direct local survival of the sparrow or cat name, or both.
Pardoe A surname of English origin, based on an Old French oath. Pardy A surname of English origin, based on an Old French oath.
Then when they finally get it -- sure enough, they're angry! You'd think that'd teach them, but they're ineducable. Spellings don't map smoothly to meanings. There's also one in Europe. Mary McCarthy disliked giving interviews. She gave great talking head, though, because she was compulsively honest. They're in a permanent state of irascibility. See, for example, this abstract in the APS March meeting, Paris, the Judgment of There's really no need for this entry, but here's something relevant from ch.
This chapter is written in the first person of Captain Hastings, the usual not-entirely-reliable narrator of Hercule Poirot's adventures. Seeing Jane's beauty and appreciating the charm that her exquisitely husky voice lent to the most trite utterances, I could hardly wonder at his [the Duke of Merton's] capitulation.
But one can get used to perfect beauty and an intoxicating voice! It crossed my mind that perhaps even now a ray of common-sense was dissipating the mists of intoxicated love. It was a chance remark--a rather humiliating gaffe on Jane's part that gave me that impression. It's London and New York that count. It was an awkward moment. On my right I heard Donald Ross draw in his breath sharply. Widburn began to talk violently about Russian opera.
Everyone hastily said something to somebody else. Jane alone looked serenely up and down the table without the least consciousness of having said anything amiss. It was then I noticed the Duke. His lips were drawn tightly together, he had flushed, and it seemed to me as though he drew slightly away from Jane. He must have had a foretaste of the fact that for a man of his position to marry a Jane Wilkinson might lead to some awkward contretemps.
Hyphen, long dashes, and periods sic, incidentally. This adjective is useful in distinguishing among different nouns and adjectives of the Latin third declension.
And January in Arizona. A chilly 70 Fahrenheit! It's an English-like expression used in the liturgical language of Notre Dame, a church-run school in Indiana Church-of-Holy-Football, a non-oblate sect of holy rollers. The phrase appears on signs at parking lots around campus.
Quite by coincidence, this turns out to be absolutely correct. However, if you don't know the local language, you will fail to realize the entire significance of the sign. The entire significance is that cars will begin to be towed at 5: The special no-parking language of Notre Dame Latin motto: Footballisus bears such a close resemblance to English that you may not realize when it is being used. This can cause confusion. The guard had probably supposed, quite innocently, that I too was fluent in no-parking.
After all, it's the same language that's used in the parking regulations brochure that you get with your sticker or hang tag. Oh, I suppose one might consider the possibility that the guard was not fluent in no-parking, and that he was unwittingly repeating what he had read in a brochure or on a no-parking sign as if it had been written in English -- mispronouncing it, so to speak.
However, that would require not only that 1 he have assumed that the sign or whatever was written in English, but furthermore that 2 I was a fluent English speaker, 3 just like himself.
That all seems like too much of a coincidence, requiring the stars to line up just right and all, so it was probably just my mistake. Either that or ND is in a very special time zone.
PAR lamps are made from heavy, heat-resistant glass, with the inside back surface shaped like a paraboloid of revolution with a reflective aluminum coat.
Interesting that R lamps and PAR lamps both use parabolic reflector back surfaces, and in R lamps they are often aluminized. It can be seen that illumination engineers are not very bright. Specifically, an and-parallel variant of Prolog. I should find out what all that stands for, sure. Parmenides Let's try to get this straight: He merely presents the strongest arguments against them that he can see. Aristotle saw a bit different. Parmenides This philosopher argued that you couldn't describe a thing completely in terms of negative qualities, and somehow argued himself from that into the dubious position that there were no distinctions or change, and that every distinction or appearance of change is illusory.
In three hundred words or fewer, explain how he would have reacted to Java applets. Give examples from Democritus of Abdera and Zeno. If you want to cheat, you can visit appropriate links at the FDT entry. If they misbehaved, they went back in jail. Comparing this definition with that of oxytone , you notice that grave accent isn't mentioned. That's because a grave accent only appears on the ultima, replacing an acute accent when another word follows immediately i. You are not the first person to wonder what great utility there is in this.
The term was reportedly coined by Timothy B. Schmit , who toured with Buffett's band in , , and , so perhaps that places it.
The Wikipedia entry browsed Gwen commented about everyone wearing Hawaiian shirts and parrot hats and how they kept coming back to see his shows, just like Deadheads'' and that Schmit coined this in response. That may be so, but another thought occurs to me. The drug culture associated with rock music gives rise to many double entendres, sometimes quite subtle e. Buffett's band, which Schmit toured as a part of, is called the Coral Reefer Band. The word head means addict, and may be regarded as occurring merely metaphorically in the sense of fan in Dead Head and Parrot Head.
So I think the fact that Parrot contains Pot might not be accidental. Unless they opt not to, all postgraduates i. Prior to that time, there had been no association for career professionals to exchange information, enhance their skills, or demonstrate their commitment to providing professional services to the general public. The NRWA was founded in Bacteriostatic agent for tubercule bacilli. To question whether a new idea would be accepted by the American mainstream, one could ask They say it's a schizophrenia test, but really it's part of an alien conspiracy that I must thwart by feeding poison packing peanuts to the sand crabs.
Seems to be a standard link on Spanish university homepages. Psychiatrists just love the P - A - S acronym so much, they give it multiple expansions so they can use it more often. Sounds pathological to me. Even there, where the expression has been common since at least the 's, most people mostly say just pasa. I don't think currants were or are especially popular there, and other dried fruit are called just that fruta seca.
I've only seen this on manufacturer or distributor product labels at the local hispanic grocery, which serves a mostly Mexican-American clientele and mainly Mexican and US brands.
Just now Summer , I see it on some Argentine pages as well. Considering the climate, this is perhaps not entirely surprising. Getting back to the pasa de uva thing, I might as well point out that Argentina is unusual, if not quite unique, in retaining the vos conjugations of Spanish. There might be more about that either at, or linked from, the Usted entry, eventualmente. BTW , if you think the situation in Spanish is confused, have a look at the plum pudding entry.
That song has a very native South American sound, and the arrangement evidently included the flute characteristic of that music. It has a characteristically breathy vibrato. I mentioned this to my mother, forgetting that she practiced recorder for a couple of decades.
It's a recorder-like flute called a quena. She dug a couple of quenas out of the dining-room hutch and played the authentic one noting that it's not supposed to be gaily painted -- but you know what sells.
It turns out that the vibrato is not in the instrument. It's a style of play: Follow this link to Andreas Sumerauer's audio sample, playing a rather Western melody. If I only cou - ou -ould, I surely wou - ou -ould. So four decades later, when you finally emerge from the haze, you can appreciate just how stoned you must have been. Even if the lyrics really were written in the nineteenth century.
I'm away from my own collection. You think I'm going to buy another copy to write this entry? I have to stop somewhere or I'll never get this glossary page posted. Pascal A programming language created by Niklaus Wirth. Borland made a nice Pascal compiler-and-development-environment for the IBM PC in the 's, but it was no longer supported in the early 's. If you're not actually interested in writing your own compiler or compiler bug fixes, and you're not working on some exotic machine for which compilers are rare, then face it, you're using Pascal because it came free and you're too cheap to buy something that's less of a waste of time.
Oh, you wanted useful information about Pascal? Why didn't you say so? Michael Neumann's extensive list of sample short programs in different programming languages includes Hello World programs in a couple of Pascal versions. The programming language Pascal was designed in in the spirit of Algol 60 with a concisely defined syntax representing the paradigm of structured programming.
Seven years later, with the advent of the micro-computer, it became widely known and was adopted in many schools and universities. In it was followed by Modula-2 which catered to the needs of modular programming in teams. This was achieved by the module construct and the separate compilation facility. In an effort to reduce language complexity, and to accommodate object-oriented programming, Oberon was designed in Here we present some aspects of the evolution of this family of programming languages.
A set of teaching standards, if that means anything. Believe me, I don't make this stuff up. Abstract includes the following dynamic profundities: This document offers a guide to enhance the quality of Michigan social studies teaching. Vision, Standards and Scoring'' Newmann, Secada, and Wehlage to create six standards that blend the elements of both powerful and authentic social studies instruction. Used in editing to indicate that an error needs to be corrected throughout a work; used in indices also.
A similar word, reasonably transliterated as passim , occurs in Biblical Hebrew and is discussed at the entry for Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. I suppose this entry would work as well with sequitur correctly spelled. Contrast with active filters. You cannot imagine the politically correct collegiate educational methods that have been urged on me by the teaching effectiveness gurus unless you remember kindergarten.
PASS This is a common initial or default password, and much of the time, it's also an exceedingly bad idea. Look, if you need an occasional random number easily, just use the least significant digits of the system clock. Complicated and unintuitive constructs like if, else, and switch are eliminated; these conditional constructs are implemented naturally and transparently in terms of computed-goto fundamentals. Needless to say, continue and break constructs are superfluous and available.
There is no need for any comment delimiter or token: Nor is it necessary to keep track of which curly bracket goes with which, or to choose a bracket alignment convention that might later prove unaesthetic, because there are no blocks -- just good, honest assignment and goto statements.
This also helps the preprocessor guess in what order the comments should be ignored. Nevertheless, experienced programmers number their comments to make clear the order in which they should be read. Comment numbers can be reused. Exceptions are handled gracefully using the toss-in-the-air method adopted from the PIZZA family of languages. PASTA is the language of choice for throwing exceptions. Facilities for catching exceptions are already under development. To improve readability, long statements can be continued anywhere using the continued operator, which specifies destination line number and column.
PASTA programs exhibit very flexible topology. A similar object-disoriented language for Apple machines is Macaroni. For example, -- is a binary operator that yields the difference of its first operand and the additive inverse of its second operand. Attempt to kick between the uprights.
Success scores one extra point after a touchdown TD. Called a convert in Canadian football. It's all about religion. The contracted form with pa' isn't very common in Spain, to judge by ghits. Googling around, I see that the form without preposition patas arriba is the most common.
I was prompted to check when I came across this cleverly crafted book title: El clima patas arriba: One despairs to translate this title adequately because it involves a great deal of wordplay. English, as often, is exceptional. On the other hand, the hot aspect of hell is much more salient in the Spanish word infierno, more like the words inferno and infernal than the word hell. The associations of infierno with heat make the allusion to global warming clear. The reason for this relatively high temperature is that a combination of reactions maintains a high concentration of ozone in the stratosphere.
Depletion of the ozone layer actually causes cooling of this upper atmosphere. The temperature drops again through the mesosphere. Eventually, at altitudes of hundreds of kilometers, the temperature is determined primarily by solar activity, and the temperature ranges from to K.
Further out, where sunlight is just a perturbation, the temperature settles down to something below 3K. He had always expected to go to a warm place, but was somewhat surprised both by its luxury and by the fact that the fork-tailed waiters were serving drinks.
He ordered a drink and, in view of the warmth, inquired whether it could possibly be iced. Surprised by the rapid provision of the requested ice, Huxley made a query of the waiter: This doesn't at all agree with what we used to be told of the place. A great many of you scientific gents have been coming here recently, and they have turned the whole place upside down.

Hmmm, from until further notice, see also the SARS entry. There is a slight ambiguity of reference: Following standard practice, this entry will be strictly careless. Then it turns north and stops at the 8th and Market St. That's as of , when there were public hearings on proposals to extend service northward and southward on the Philadelphia side of the Delaware. This is the name of three unions. Operated by the Port Authority PA.
Raise your hand if you guessed it. Yes but, as Woody Allen would probably ask: It was either a typo or a pun that I am no longer clever enough to get. I notice that St. Joseph is still tasked with patronizing or whatever it's called the fighters against Communism. I realize you want to go with your best horse, but that operation seems to be winding down.
Yet after the blessed events around , things have stalled a bit. Possibly his attention is slipping, since he also has responsibility for much of northern North America Canada ; archdiocese of Anchorage, Alaska ; diocese of Cheyenne, Wyoming ; diocese of Buffalo, New York , etc. The fact is that while these are all very important responsibilities, they are relatively well in hand.
Most of these responsibilities are shared with other, less-well-known but adequately holy saints, many of them champing at the bit to show their miraculous stuff.
There is a clear need to prioritize and delegate. Well, I see that after a slow start, Pope Benedict is finally seeing the Curian stables flushed out; I trust the Holy Father will give this his attention next. For other practical saintly thoughts, see the entry for assassination, political. And just in case you want to return to this entry and forget to bookmark it, you ought to know that Saint Anthony of Padua is the patron saint of lost objects and probably lost classes and structs, too.
His feast day is June 13th, and I imagine he likes peanuts. Thai peanut sauce, mmmmm. The patsy in these cases is a mark or a fall-guy, respectively. The Speech and Language domain one of four on the PATSy system is used as a resource in teaching students how to diagnose speech and language impairment in brain-injured patients and serves as a repository of patient cases for researchers and clinicians.
It was presented by Hollywood's office of the American Humane Association to human-trained animal performers for noteworthy performances in TV, movies, and at least one play. The awards were first presented in , when the emcee was Ronald Reagan. Peter Boyd costarred with another primate named Bonzo in Bedtime for Bonzo , which was released that year.
Ron eventually went on to play the lead role in the US government. The 's and 's were good years for performing animals, and the PATSY's were awarded annually until After a three-year hiatus, they were awarded again starting in , with Bob Barker as host.
Bob Barker resigned in protest in March , complaining that training methods for animal performers were cruel. The disagreement between the AHA and Barker continued and got very ugly.
The AHA eventually sued him for libel and defamation. That suit was settled out of court in Organizers told him fake furs would be used starting the next year, and he agreed to stay on. The next year organizers reneged, and he quit. Term would seem to be plausibly confusable with PAX. August Friedrich von Pauly only lived from to The work was completed by his younger colleagues Wilhelm Sigismund Teuffel and Christian Walz Neue Bearbeitung [von Paulys] unter Mitwirkung zahlreicher Fachgenossen hrsg.
Official IAU abbreviation for the constellation. Nevertheless, there is an ancient myth explaining how the peacock got its eyes, explained by Chris Dolan at his page for the constellation Pavo. The mythical story, not surprisingly, has to do with sex. The widely accepted modern explanation is sexual selection same thing with zebra stripes.
I imagine this works better if you also have some feed. The word Pute usually refers to turkey as food, just as pork or ham in English refers to hog as food.
Well, to judge from ghits , these endearments are quite rare today. She hadn't learned the Spanish word pavo yet, so she did what one usually does, and tried to naturalize into Spanish the in this case German word she did know.
It's hard to explain the precise valence of me in her phrase, so I won't. For more and less, see these entries: The ways pasas , incorrectly speaking of Spanish are mysterious. And yes, you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup. A radar system located at Beale AFB. He and his parents fled Berlin for Belgrade in It seems that as they were working their way down the alphabet , they were running out of options. He published three novels and four biographies.

Like most memoirs, it has no index. Let's have some badly-constructed index entries. Djilas, Milovan, Vladimir Dedijer ostracized for refusing to break with The only English-speaker in Belgrade--English to the extent of not quite being Serbian--with whom I ever tried to commune in that language was my barber, deported from the States as a subversive alien after the First World War.
PAWS A popular acronym and name or name component for groups with animal concerns. Pets Are Worth Saving. PAWS is dedicated to saving animals and ensuring that they have a loving, healthy, happy place to live.
The acronym is Widely used in the transportation industries, and may refer to singular passengers as opposed to plural passengers, not as opposed to nonsingular passengers. Pax Romana, Pax Americana. We call it a festival because in addition to dedicated tournaments and freeplay areas we've got nerdcore concerts, panel discussions, the weekend-long Omegathon event, and an exhibitor hall filled with booths displaying the latest from top game publishers and developers.
Even with all this amazing content the best part of PAX is hanging out with other people who know their shit when it comes to games. Pays-bas Low prices in Holland now! Don't worry, we'll mention Vespasian here sooner or later, or else have a link to a urinals entry that mentions him.

PB Plasma reactor, Barrel type. Pb Chemical symbol for lead, from P lum b um , which was the Latin name for nonprecious soft ductile metal; lead was plumbum nigrum [black] and tin was plumbum album [white].
A dense metal and a heavy one. Lead is dense If you have a lot of it, it's heavy. Gold is denser If you have a lot of it, you're rich. Heavy is a matter of perspective and motivation. From the perspective of nuclear or atomic beam physics, lead is heavier than gold atomic number 79 because the most common isotopes have higher mass atomic mass Gold is denser because it has a smaller molar volume.
The electronic image archives at Washington University at St. Louis had a jpeg of an old postcard of Leadville, Colorado. Look around, it's probably out there somewhere on the web still.

Just to inject a little variety, I think it's nice to have some organization names that look like imperative clauses.
PBA sponsors twelve months a year. Here's an interesting fact: It was once even a surprising fact, but now that ESPN has broadcast a censored scrabble event, it's merely interesting. Menke, to get some authoritative confirmation.
Sure enow, it lists Bowling. It also lists birling, which is the sport form of the business of log rolling. A birling tournament is a roleo. Similarly, a birding tournament is a rodeo. Well, okay, it isn't. But it should be. After all, the longest-running competitive birding tournament in the US is held in Texas. Menke also lists corn husking. In the years to , the three contests with the lowest winning net bushels husked in eighty minutes were the years with the most inclement race conditions snow and ice in !

Set up by the US Congress in to insure defined-benefit corporate pensions. PBGC is meant to take over the operation of a corporate pension whenever the corporation fails. Corporations that run pensions are required by law to have pension funds that can't be looted by the company to make up business shortfalls. It's not like the Social Security Administration , whose funds consist of the federal government's promise to pay back the money it took from FICA contributions.
When the PBGC takes over a pension, it takes over the pension fund's assets but not, by law, its entire obligations. It's like federal deposit insurance, which protects deposits up to a certain amount, but determining the coverage is much more complicated.
So the PBGC typically covers some of the shortfall from its own budget, but much of the shortfall is made up simply by reducing benefits. Who gives up how much is a complicated calculation based on a variety of rules. The rules generally favor older workers. One doesn't automatically receive the maximum if one's defined benefit under the defunct pension exceeded it. A polysilicon layer between the pad oxide and the nitride absorbs the stress produced by field oxidation i.

Expect your HMO to get right on the case. The PRC's central bank. The p stands for the para position of the benzene ring, indicating where the bromine is bonded. A nuclear reactor whose fuel elements are in the form of small particles.
See the related PBR. I think that some time in the nineteenth century, or maybe it was during the nineteenth dynasty the Egyptians claim they invented beer , Pabst won a blue ribbon for one of its beers. Ever since, they've been milking that award for publicity. I would want to know more about the ribbon accrediting agency. I mean -- even I've won blue ribbons! There are stores that specialize in trophies and awards see ARA. A nuclear reactor whose fuel elements are in the form of small pebble-size pieces.
A similar reactor with smaller fuel elements is a Particle-Bed Reactor. If you want to distinguish the two, the standard initialisms won't help. Both PBR designs were proposed for space missions. I'm not sure if any have been put into service. To judge by web salience ghits , actually it's either moribund or hiding behind another name than that by which the PAS knows it. Part of the Australian government's federal health care system, called Medicare.
The average age of the PBS viewer was I suspect that distribution is bimodal: When you subtract out the audience for Sesame Street and such, the average age was more like Actually, PBS is used to this sort of audience. What worries them is that they used to pick up viewers as they aged, but they're not pulling in successive generations as they used to. Still, from the few publicly available figures, it looks like they made big progress in According to data gathered during the Nielsen sweeps in November , the median age of PBS viewers was all the way down to I'm not really sure how comparable this number is with the previous one, since it wasn't clear where the earlier one came from.
It ought to be comparable with the other Nielsen numbers, however: During the dispute, MPT noted that the average age of the Fortune reader was 49, while most of the show's viewers were over It is a fine irony that PBS might be choosing the least opportune moment to condescend in age.
Yes, they were using that very word -- before it was fashionable, even before the Bakke decision. PBS tried to serve various small audiences, such as thinking people, that were ignored by the major networks. When cable came, it spawned a large number of new networks that targeted various niche markets that only PBS had served before. So PBS, like the commercial networks, lost market share to cable.
But some of the networks that ate PBS's lunch or dinner and prime-time, rather found it less tasty than they expected. PBS might do well to let its competition go away instead of chasing it. One of the distinctive features of public television in the US is the twice-or-more-yearly begathons.

In my experience, PChem course is fairly unchallenging compared to any real course covering any single topic -- thermodynamics, kinetic theory, quantum mechanics -- included in a typical year of PChem. However, the material is wide-ranging, and it is qualitatively different from and much more mathematical than that in most other courses taken by chemistry and chemical engineering majors.

Each of the major local hospitals uses only one of the terms. PCP is probably the less accurate term, since nursing assistants are low-skilled workers. On the other hand, since the 's in the US, a few causes have led to shifts in health-care responsibilities: Some routine diagnostic and prescription tasks that once were the sole bailiwick of physicians are now often performed by registered nurses, and various routine nursing duties are performed largely by nursing assistants.
