Michael Neumann's extensive list of sample short programs in many other programming languages also lists many wonderful features of this language. Easily confused with D , which partly explains the latter's rarity. In ordinary speech, in all dialects I am aware of, the stress accent is on the second syllable of the noun when it does not refer to team games. A common partisan cheer at N. American football and basketball games is the exhortation DEE fence ; pigskin and round ball discussion, over beer and in the press box, now systematically stresses the first syllable.
The noun has been verbed, and following the ordinary pattern, the verb to defense is stressed on the second syllable. Defense in the sports sense is best regarded as a homograph of its etymological precursor the noun with final accent.
The verb to defense refers to all on-field or on-court actions comprising defense, and emphasizes the component of strategy. To defend is only a close synonym. The earlier common use of defend in sports got around the difficulty by speaking of defending the end zone, or defending the middle yardage, but this was never quite right: With the verb defend , this requires a prepositional phrase against the run, the shotgun, the nickle, the four horsemen.
The verb to defense streamlines communication by making the offense the default direct object of the verb. Both verbs can be used intransitively. Defense is sometimes called Dee or Big Dee. There is no corresponding small dee , as there is in politics vide D infra.
The word offense has undergone a sports-usage development parallel to defense , with stress shift and associated change in pronunciation of the initial vowel. Sports offense is not close in meaning to the ordinary sense of the word, but is instead simply the complement of defense.
I don't know when the American league adopted the designated hitter DH rule. D Deca- or Deka-, metric prefix meaning ten. Might be confused with d. It seems deci- got a head start and elbowed-out the too-similar Deca. Delta remains the name of the corresponding letter in the Greek alphabet.
A similar usage occurs in Canada: This led to ironies, but what political position doesn't? According to this history offered by the DNC , it was the National Convention of that eventually simplified the Party's name to the Democratic Party. The Democrats' earliest opposition was the Federalists John Adams, Alexander Hamilton , who never won an election after that of John Adams see dynasty entry , and that party petered out to the point where, by , US presidential elections were contested by different factions of the Democratic-Republican party.
The election of , a four-way race among Democratic-Republicans, was decided in the House each state delegation having one vote when no candidate won a majority. The National Republican party evolved into the Whigs, which eventually went on to form a part with Free-Soil and others of the Republican party, whose first elected president was Abraham Lincoln.
Some Republicans may regard this usage as a way of insisting that Republicans are democratic too but they are also democrats too, so I don't see much force in the argument.
Mostly, this usage is simply rude: I can't think of any examples I would be willing to put above my name. In the book mentioned at this other entry p. Sam Ervin is also credited with this assessment p. The American people have a simplistic faith in law. Our great national delusion is based on the fact that we have a childlike faith that anything wrong in our civilization can be abolished by law and that all of life's problems lend themselves to legal solutions.
It is doubtful whether many people who are in custody in institutions for the mentally ill in our land suffer under a greater delusion than that. Eventually, I'll have to put in an entry on how the mentally ill were cruelly and with the best of intentions de-institutionalized in the years after. Pride of place in that book pp. MacKinnon is an unfolksy feminist, but there is common ground between her and Sam Ervin.
A collection of her speeches [ Feminism Unmodified: Discourses on Life and Law , Harvard U. Much of it reads like a carefully crafted ad hominem attack on her opponent in other words, like a typical debate , but it does include some substantive claims Now I want to consider with you the role of the law in the future of women's rights.
The law alone cannot change our social condition. So far, it has helped remarkably little. I am clear that everything women need will not be accomplished by the ERA, and not by law alone. The last four words were made the chapter title. It must be conceded that MacKinnon had an ulterior motive for making modest claims: The strongest precedent for this belief was civil rights juris im prudence that included affirmative action and busing.
In a perverse way, MacKinnon was right: A metric unit that is used to measure fiber fineness. The linear mass density is equal to the ordinary density mass per unit volume times the cross-sectional area, so when one is comparing materials of equal or similar density, the ratio of that area and that linear density is constant, and D can be thought of as a unit of either.
That's what I'll do moving forward through this entry. Oftentimes, the density will not be stated but both the fineness and diameter will. Look, I know you can do this simple arithmetic, and maybe these are not your favorite units, but the only reason I'm writing this entry at all is that I'm trying to extract some information that's reported in these cussed units.
Mass density is a useful thing to know, because it's a good clue to the identity of an unknown plastic. Here are some examples. See also earlier use of D for didymium. The nucleus of a deuterium atom. The weakly bound state of a single proton and neutron. Apparently the consensus chemical symbol for this metal, and perhaps the official chemical symbol during the period when it was believed to be an element, is Di q.
But D was also used, when either was. There seems to have been a sentiment to replace single-letter chemical-element symbols with two-letter ones, when it could be gotten away with. This venerable grade indicates that the instructor takes pity on a hapless incompetent student, or else just wants to see all different students in next year's class. That's now an A-.
My guess is that E disappeared because it might be mistaken for an abbreviation of Excellent hope sprang eternal. As you will no doubt have noticed, here on the grounds of the SBF, we're attempting to build links between all our entries.

For some the next larger size is DD and for others E. It's not like letter grades, where they skip immediately to F. Deformation potential of electron- phonon interaction.
Deformation potential arises from the fact that deformations of the lattice, described by phonons, cause inhomogeneities in the dielectric coefficient, and therefore affect the electrostatic component of the electron or hole self-energy.

Kill a fly with howitzer. That's my favorite kind of ad campaign: That probably has something to do with DAB after all. Mark refreshed my memory: I'd like to hear their funky heavy metal sound. I had also misremembered the ad catch-phrase. But those were my big-hair days, a dab wouldn't've done me, and I wouldn't've wanted what it would've done me.
Just one other comment: The place where most laboratory ultra-high pressure work is done. Two diamond faces separated by a thin gasket in the shape of an annulus. The item to be pressurized is in fluid in the cell. When the diamond faces are pressed together, the gasket is deformed outward somewhat. The radial force on the gasket is only the cell pressure times the area of its vertical inner surface, whereas the normal force is the same pressure exerted by a diamond face times its surface area.
The study of this and similar important issues in connection with unit names constructed by shortening the name of a hemieponymous honoree amp from Ampere, torr from Torricelli, volt from Volta , etc. Modern audio hardware typically references volume levels to a maximum, so most audio API's represent volume by a nonpositive number: In the DirectSound, for example, volume ranges from to 0, in units of a hundredth of a decibel.
I guess that ought to be millibels mB. Note that when sound is digitized in 16 bits, the ratio of highest to lowest amplitude is A declining-balance card is like a company-town debit card without the checks. A position in American football. The term is also used generically for the whole secondary. I'll write more when I figure out what that means. Strength is more important in defensive linemen than in other defensive positions; speed is more important in DB's, DE's, and safeties than in DL's.
The nonfootball stat that is the significant figure of merit for DL's is time in the yard dash. No one is interested in their meter or marathon times. Those sorts of facts were called immediately to mind by football news reported by the AP for Thursday, April 3, Police said he led them on a quarter-mile foot race, but no precise times were reported.

Phone instrument from the steam age. The dielectric in question is usually functioning principally as an insulator, with the value of its dielectric constant a secondary consideration.
Therefore, change of n is not the issue in DB, it's the occurrence of conductivity. Those Normans may have been effective conquerors, but they couldn't spell.

As you will have noticed, this glossary is so up-to-the-CPU-cycle that you see the new entries in the jumbled form they take as the news is breaking. You also see the old entries that way. We strive for the genuine appearance of authenticity. I can remember when those heavy oversize citation and periodical indices would lie heavy in my lap, as I used pencil-and-paper technology to record which articles I needed while my legs fell asleep on the library carpeting.
So I don't complain about a few inappropriate extra hits on my search beta error. Not too long after I learn what it is, we'll have an entry for the guitar nebula , too.
DBB Deutscher Beamten b und. German Public Servants' Union, with 1. The largest union outside the DGB , q. A term used for various pre-Unicode character encodings that used two-byte encodings only for some characters albeit for most of them, in fact and single-byte encodings for others.

An electrode is implanted in the brain usually in either the thalamus, the globus pallidus internus, or the subthalamic nucleus [ STN ].
Brief electric pulses usually in a rectangular pulse pattern delivered by the electrode can control tremors in many patients. Failing that, they may at least reduce the amount of medication patients have to take.
Parkinson's has a broad menu of symptoms which manifest in various combinations and degrees. DBS has been been proposed and tried for a variety of other ailments, including depression, OCD , and Tourette's syndrome. In each case, a different set of brain regions is targeted.
Implanted in your chest, typically, with wires running subcutaneously along the side of the neck and up to the brain. Nowadays these batteries are usually rechargeable, so surgery to replace them is infrequent. There are many different designs and implementations. Some alternative approaches involve an external battery driving a radio transmitter, and a receiving-antenna coil over the site of the brain implant. When an implanted power supply is used, however, there may be antennas also: Pulse generation also has to be turned on.
The surgery to implant the electrodes may provide about a month's worth of stimulation; normally, pulse generation isn't turned on until that initial stimulatory effect has worn off. This typically requires " dishes. Record below 0 to avoid distortion and conversely. Don't twist your tongue. One good thing about the DBT initialism is that it helps you avoid accidentally calling it diabolical behavior therapy.
When dB are used to indicate power through voltage in that way, regardless of impedance, this unit is used. Actual usage gets even stranger. A Gannett-chain newspaper in Rochester, N. It's an old gnu utility. Actually, it's an old Unix utility, but that doesn't make much of a pun, does it? Originally, bc was a preprocessor for dc.
But we haven't figured out what bc stands for, so we can't tell you anything about it. Except that it's practically a baby-C-like calculator programming language. Maybe it stands for Big Honkin' Calculator? Nope -- no aitch. DC Dietitians of Canada. Wait a second -- that's the same abbreviation as in English.
I'm going to have to rest a while and try to figure out how this could have happened. I really don't think we need to explain that here. A curette is a spoon-shaped scraper. The forms with periods are old and out of fashion. In the better electronics books that were published before television and widespread illiteracy in the professional classes, you would see a consistent distinction between D.
This is discussed further in the attributive noun entry. Similar remarks apply to the use of A. The fact is that nowadays, dc, DC, etc. If you want to know something, uh , substantive about direct current in electronics, you should see the Alternating Current entry. USPS abbreviation always omits periods.

Being deep in debt is not fun. It's scary and frightening but you can survive. The panic attacks, waking up in the middle of the night, and constant stress will begin to vanish once you take a positive step towards getting out of debt.
There is hope, we can help. Chiropractic is a noun as well as an adjective. Originally, chiropractic was based on an acupuncture-like theory of disease and made outlandish claims about the possibility of curing a range of ailments by manipulation of the spine.
The Latin root man- for hand appears in the word manipulate for more see the mano a mano entry ; the Greek root for hand, chiro- , was used in constructing chiropractic. Since its establishment, chiropractic has tried and succeeded somewhat in cleaning up its act -- toning down its more preposterous claims, scrounging up some scientifically sound clinical research support for its claims of efficacy. A couple of people I know regularly visit chiropractors.
Chiropractic is a lot like a major religion: As Augustine the Saint wrote, he believed because it was absurd. Once it had a number of regular communicants, it amended the message. If people were rational, the jettison of initially central claims might lead them to question the epistemic basis of the remaining rationalizations.
People are not rational, and they go on believing. By the way, you shouldn't take this the wrong way: Your religion is very reasonable. Bare integrated circuit chip is placed directly on printed wiring board PWB. That's pretty sad, because the APh itself is pretty far behind. However, the DCB webpages are never updated, so the situation may be a little better than advertised on the web.
Man, you'd be surprised at all the resentment seething under the calm urbane surface of your ordinary classicist. It comes equipped with its own retrieval software for both Windows and Macintosh platforms, with user-selectable English or French interfaces.
Classicists lean disproportionately toward Macs rather than Windows machines though I don't think Classics is majority-Mac any more. The DCB test is widely used to characterize the mode-I delamination and bridging behavior of laminated continuous-fiber composite materials. Less ambiguous and less common than the abbreviation DCV.

Top prizes are scholarships, and there are large numbers of smaller prizes like tee shirts. DD is part of the Unix children's alphabet poem alternate locations: E is for Emacs, which rebinds your keys, and F is for Fsck, which rebuilds your trees.
Sad, but not so sad. DD Doctor of Divinity. In fall , the dean of Harvard Divinity School was forced to resign after thousands of pornographic images were found on his Harvard-owned personal computer. This was only revealed the following May; so he could find another job, maybe? The pornographic material was found on the office computer at his Harvard-owned residence at Jewett House. The discovery was made after Thiemann requested more disk space for one of his Harvard-owned machines, which was full, according to university sources.
He actually asked the computer department to transfer the pornographic files to the new disk drive, according to sources that should probably be admired for not breaking up laughing. This isn't as rotten as it sounds. Next brassiere cup size after D. Normally, when a head term has two or more entries, I try to order the entries by alphabetical order of definitions or expansions, but not this time. I mean really, if you know the where to look for the definition, you probably already know the definition anyway, and you're just reading this glossary for your own perverted purposes, like sordid entertainment, and slowing down the server for people who need it for serious research.
DD Double Density floppy disk. Double-Sided DD because the first ones were one-sided. At some point, after two-sided disks became available, someone realized that the cheaper one-sideds could be recorded on both sides -- it was cheaper to manufacture just one type.
If you have an old computer that expects DD, you can still insert HD diskettes and they should work. DD diskettes are recognizable from the single notch on extreme left corner of illustration at right with a sliding cover open or missing cover for write protection, closed to enable writing; if you lost the slide, cover with opaque tape.
If you have a drive that recognizes HD diskettes, but have written at DD on another machine, or want to write in DD format to be read by another machine, then cover the extra hole no sliding cover on the other side. Highly involved role-playing games RPG 's , popular among college students. Rules and roles made up and sometimes stated by a dungeon master DM. Hence, for example, the mark-up for this entry reads: A service of routers available in Cisco IOS used for two purposes: Dial backup or dial back-up: Use of the dial backup techniques to add bandwidth as needed.
Need is usually determined by simple algorithm: This Dee Dee was a sort of department-store Bee Bee , the way French fashions in those days were quickly copied, with adjustments for a more modest style, in cheaper materials for the American mass market. In a series of romantic comedy trifles in the fifties and sixties, she was often cast with a central-casting prune as a best friend, to establish contrast. It's been pointed out that in her films that she never had trouble finding a parking space, but is that so odd?
If a character in a movie is going to have difficulty finding a parking space, it has to be written into the screenplay, and it ought to advance the story. Well, the action began at H -Hour It is more straightforwardly hierarchical than the LC system the LCC , and tends to be more popular for smaller collections.
It seems to be pretty standard for public-school libraries and for the public libraries of smaller cities. The original Dewey system, promulgated in , was developed by an American librarian named Melvil Dewey Dec. Now you know why. If there are two then one is for American and one for other English-language prose fiction; I'll look into it. If you look in a library that uses the Dewey system, you won't find many books there, even though or rather because very roughly half of the books in a public library are prose fiction.
Computerization of library catalogs has obviously facilitated this, and mobility has probably also reduced the tolerance of library patrons for idiosyncratic local systems. The change-over can be a problem, however. When I used the Princeton University libraries in the 's and 's, many books were still catalogued using the local Richardson Classification scheme.
For most major subject categories in the Fine Hall Library Physics and Math , there were newer books under LC numbers and older books under the Richardson numbers. Perhaps the most widely used decimal scheme on a global basis is the UDC , q. Edition 22 of the Dewey system was rolled out in mid on a gurney.
Well, it was stretched out, anyway. Four volumes; I hope they're shelved together. By the way, new editions don't just add more digits and subcategories, you know -- they sometimes reshelve books to different parts of the library.

Stay tuned for further exciting developments. This is the first catalogue of its kind, one which discusses all the gods and demons whose names are found in the Bible. Complementing the usual surveys and histories of Mesopotamian, Egyptian, Ugaritic, Syro-Palestinian, Persian, Greek, and Roman religion, DDD assesses the impact of contemporary religions on Israel and the Early Church by focusing on those gods that actually left traces in the Bible.
Gods mentioned by name as gods. In some instances the names are found only in the Septuagint and not in the corresponding section of the Masoretic text. Anyone could valuate it. Gods whose names are etymons of theophoric anthroponyms and toponyms that's personal and place names, okay?
It is conscientiously animadverted that the people of Anathoth cannot be assumed to worship Anat, and that Tychicus may not worship Tyche, etc. An interesting though trivial example: I'll spare you their extenuation for including notice of these words. They're being thorough, and I approve that. One may wonder, in cases like Yarikh, whether what is found is not a reversion to or a continuation of a nonreligious tradition. That is, that the originally nonmythological moon's name, for example, was drafted into mythological service.
The goddess of the dawn is Eos in Greek and Aurora in Latin. It is clear that these are not separate developments from a common goddess name, but separate uses of different word for dawn for a goddess.
Surely the same can happen even when the nonmythological names have a common etymology, and sometimes it must happen in only some of the languages with shared etymology. In fact, the authors of this work are not foolish about this.
Here is the first part of the entry for mouth: The etymological equivalent in Hebrew peh does not seem to have enjoyed a comparable divine status. Some of this comes from altering lexical material absent in the original texts. Word spacing was absent in the original Greek; vowels, indicated by pointing in the Masoretic text, were not indicated in the original Hebrew.
Some comes from changing similar-sounding or similar-appearing letters that might have been incorrectly transmitted. Example of the former reinterpretation: Some of these questionable gods are imaginary in multiple ways. This consists of the completest canon of the Septuagint including all of what some traditions call the Apocrypha, even to 3 and 4 Maccabees , plus the Greek New Testament.
The Masoretic text of the Hebrew Bible is used as a parallel source. The successive letters indicate whether analog or digital equipment was used in the respective stages of production: One size larger than double-dee DD. A product of DDT breakdown; binds to testosterone receptors. Even today, this seems to be causing Florida Everglades toads to leave their girlfriends cold on Saturday night.

Sounds like the sucker your buddies found for you to get rid of the hot potato. Clock time advanced by two hours relative to standard time. DDST makes the greatest sense at high latitudes, where Summer dusks are very late and where Winter dawns which play a part in determining local standard times are also late. Otherwise, during the war, it was on single-hour DST.
Newfoundland 's independence was recognized by the UK in the Statute of Westminster , but two years later it went broke and resumed the status of a colony until There were the usual drawbacks, and coordination problems with the rest of Canada were, oh, I'd say about twice as bad as with regular DST.
No, a factor of 2 doesn't make sense when you think about it. So don't think about it. Hence, there was not an effective majority for DDST. Similar issues arise in elections with three or more candidates. The following January, legislation was passed that established year-round one-hour DST for the duration [more precisely, until six months after the cessation of hostilities], and gave the president no discretion in the matter.
At the end of the war, further legislation rescinded federally-mandated DST earlier than the date originally set, and War Time ended on Sunday, September DDT An unbelievably effective insecticide. After it was first tested, all subsequently tested formulas were also found to be fabulously effective, until it was realized that the effect was due to DDT residue in the test chamber.
DDT has been widely banned for its side-effects on beneficial insects and on other animals. The decision comes only decades too late for millions of dead. Developed by Paul H. You could look it up. A generic term, because the defensive line typically has two ends RE and LE. It ain't topology, you know. It's a USPS abbreviation. Actually, it's a USPS symbol for the state.
It's written without the period that normally follows an abbreviation, but the symbol happens to be formed from a subset of the letters that spell the state name, so it's an abbreviated form of the state name, so we're gonna let it slide. The term is general across GUI 's, but I think the term comes up more in Linux because of the broad selection, and the tendency of Linux users to sample and experiment with different distros.
Germany has the greatest variety of etymologically unrelated names among European countries. Italy uses versions of at least three: Alemani , Germania , Tedesco. For crying out loud , as recently as it had two official names in German and capitals, etc. The Saxony entry at SN explains a couple of the names of Germany, but remember that etymology is not an exact science.

Spanish is perhaps more in-their-faces about this: The second term is less common, but there are regional variations e.
The design of the system interprets release of the handle or lever as inattention, incapacity or absence of a live operator, so release triggers safety action such as shut-off moving equipment, braking of the vehicle, purging of chemical vapors vel sim.
A typical old implementation of a dead man's handle in railed vehicles is a brake bar that applies the brakes when released. In the electric trams in San Francisco, the main brake is set up this way. A driver there once explained to me how he used the brake bar to steer switch tracks as well. I don't know if this was a design feature, but I imagine you're bound to come up with this sort of trick anyway if you stand for hours all day doing mostly nothing but handling the brake see manual transmission.
A lot of the drivers in the electric busses develop a patter and compete for best-driver of the month, often actively encouraging their passengers to mail in votes. If professors are frustrated actors, then these drivers are frustrated stand-up comedians.
There used to be a comic strip about a crime investigator I think named Modesty Blaise, back in the sixties.
Since then, people have been reading newspapers less regularly, making it more difficult to sustain a plot. One adjustment has been to repeat plot developments so that anyone reading three or four strips a week can follow, but that has slowed the stories down. Anyway, the comic strip, illustrated by Neville Colvin, is no more.
A series of books, by writer Peter O'Donnell, was spawned by the comic-strip series, and one of those books was Dead Man's Handle. Has a nice ring, doesn't it? The old-style dead man's handle on British trains is a DSD. Navigation in which one computes i. The alternative is piloting -- i. Many dictators have delusions of grandeur.

A young woman making her formal debut into Society. It's one of those counterintuitive uses of de- like denude. These seem contradictory because the prefix in its living, still-productive form is mainly privative.
In many older words the prefix has a more geometric sense. Various ideas have been suggested. Bought by Compaq in or , which was in turn bought by Hewlett-Packard in 2Q It's on a book by David Weir, and it was published by a university press University of Massachusetts's , so it's a fair bet to be a dull read, but it's fascinating for almost two pages.

Pater's Marius the Epicurean. Here's the beginning of the Acknowledgments: Decadence and degeneration have little in common: In this book, I have tried to measure up to the level of decadence achieved by my models and mentors, friends and colleagues. No, what it is that the truly decadent do not do is not elaborated upon. I'm not sure if I'm decayed about this or degenerated. What, you read all the way through the entry?

Moreover, normal people will believe it contributes to their understanding of the song to know that it was motivated by a drawing that John Lennon's 5-year-old son brought home from school, depicting his classmate Lucy in a diamond-decorated sky, even if they still suspect that there's a sly reference to LSD.
These attitudes distinguish people who have their heads on straight from people who do deconstruction. While even the texts that espouse this viewpoint can be and indeed have been deconstructed, there is a bias in the selection of texts: Until recently, Marxist and other texts to which deconstructionists had some political attachment were less likely to undergo this destructive analysis. It appears that even deconstructionists hold some meanings to be somehow more worthwhile in some way, for reasons which are not contained in deconstructionism itself.
Whitman was not contained between his hat and his boots, but that's completely irrelevant. It is difficult to regard as intellectually honest an enterprise that questions the possibility of meaning. In response to an email barrage from thousands of ordinary Americans outraged by my calumny of deconstruction and my controversial opinions about the possibility of meaning, I find I must issue a complete and abject retraction. Well, not thousands actually. Well, actually, somebody looked at me funny today.
Must have read the deconstruction entry. It's important to be sensitive to reader response, because there's so little of it. I leave my original comments above, as a silent self-indictment of my ignorance. It is obvious that no one takes me seriously as a critic of criticism , despite my credentials. Hey, everyone's a critic! I therefore refer the gentle reader and ordinary American to the newsweakly People. Finally, one may say that deconstruction is third-person self-abnegation. This is a shareware definition: If you use it you owe me a nickel.
If you understand it you owe me a dime. If you think a truth value can be meaningfully assigned to it, call me , I have a bridge for sale cheap. I was going to write about Kierkegaard here, and how he tried to submerge the author of his own books by using various transparent pseudonyms, and about other stuff, but I was deflated to learn that Plato was also a deconstructionist, so somehow it doesn't seem so novel anymore.
Wow, I've got ESP! William Shatner's cover of Lucy, spoken as if in alarmed supplication before a highly advanced alien life-form his approximation of psych o delia , is worth the price of replacing your CD player, which will have to be taken away for environmentally safe disposal. The misheard lyrics at the beginning of this entry are examples of mondegreens. Just to be a little serious here Putative explanations of these approaches and of whether and how they differ are generally either incoherent or deep, and over time I and many others who were willing to listen have gradually concluded that they are not deep.
The same ideas, or lack of ideas, or cynical rhetorical cons, have also been used in other humanities disciplines than literature. Among those interested in po-mo are a small number that I respect on independent grounds, and their participation in this fraud or madness is puzzling.
My best and most generous guess is that these honest scholars find a few isolated bits of theory, usually general perspectives or sympathies rather than specific claims, that they only interpret in ways that offer some insight.
I may come back later and try to be a little less circumstantial. For now I want to mention an interesting feature of this battle of the po-mo's and traditionalists the battle was joined in the 's. Both sides feel or claim to feel besieged: To a small extent both sets of claims are true, because the situation is different in the various humanities disciplines and universities.
But it looks suspicious. I recently ran across a comment that presented one historian's impression of the pressure of fashion not just the po-mo fashion.
As a start, I'll transcribe a bit: To the [charge of the work being aggressively unfashionable as history] I must still plead guilty: My only consolation here can be that fashions change. This is from p. Socialists, Liberals, and the Quest for Unity, Either decoration with paper cut-outs or the editing of film.
Ten channels spaced 1. More at the Ed. By Thomas Burrow, who began the title with A. In fact, see book dedications for at least one more dedication. I've decided that aggregation of book dedication content will continue only at that entry, because I as well as my editor had forgotten that this one even existed.
Maybe I'll dedicate the dedications entry to material on non-book dedications. Those precise words do not occur in the song, however. John Dee, and published by John Day London, The confusion of this Euclid with the younger Euclid of Alexandria began in the Latin West during medieval times and did not begin to be corrected until the Latin translation of Federico Commandino published in I'm surprised and impressed to find semantic awareness and an understated and appropriate pun in a sentence emanating from educationists.
Too bad about the missing hyphen. If you think oil is bad, you should try frying in water. There is also a fair degree of consistency in the pronunciation of the vowels in di and eth It's also called chigger wash and skeeter skat. Did I mention that it's a powerful insect repellent? Also, partly by design and partly because separating isomers is a hassle, the commercial product is mix. Most of the other names are boring, though. Please people -- a little more whimsical imagination!
DEF The three letters associated with the number three 3 on the North American and formerly also on the British phone dial or keypad. If the programmer does not explicitly define a default constructor, then the compiler defines one. That is the default default constructor. Embryonic stem cells are also much less frequently called fetal stem cells. It might be that the latter term is a shibboleth for those opposed to their use.
A term used in the US Armed Forces for the levels of activation and readiness, the defense posture. What the heck is peacetime? Death has come to our windows. Perhaps it would be more accurate to say that they wish to access sites that happen to contain such material as defined by Saudi censors. Maybe they're the sort of people who read Playboy for the fiction. Maybe it's computer viruses calling home.
This doesn't much concern me or probably you either, but Walter Laqueur mentions the report in The Last Days of Europe , trying to make a point about the nature of religious commitment among young Muslim men. I don't see this as especially significant. The reason I mention it here is that on page , still discussing access to pornography mostly , he writes the following in parenthesis: What I want to observe is that in some versions of the quote, windows should be capitalized.
Defenestration of Prague, The A popular name, but a mischaracterization. It was not Prague itself that was defenstrated -- that would have been difficult -- but two governors of Bohemia: William Slavata and Jaroslav Mirtinic. They escaped with minor injuries, but let's get our bearings here.
Rudolf II, king of Bohemia , was, as you surely remember, one of the greatest monarchs of all time. Well, more on that later. I mean, he funded Kepler. There is safety in numbers. Follow Benjamin Franklin's advice -- be neither first nor last. Recognize that the vehicles around you are running radar interference. That just goes to show you how far he was ahead of his time, and how little he followed his own advice. Test your radar detectors regularly. Implement a NASA -style redundancy reconciliation system for your radar awareness environment.
Collect license plates from exotic places with bad or slow motor vehicle information systems. Repaint your car frequently. Paul Tsongas and Warren Rudman think we're better off with less of one. Of course, in , the Federal Budget is in surplus for the first time in ages, just in time for the coming depression. Maybe we can all be Keynesians again. All the major Romance, Germanic, and Celtic languages supposing for a moment that there is a major Celtic language have them.
Hebrew and Arabic also use definite articles. The largest European language group that generally does not use definite articles is the Slavic language family. I grant that's a pretty big exception. These languages, like Arabic and Hebrew, don't have indefinite articles.
Romanian and the North Germanic i. The exceptional Scandinavian language of Iceland, as well as Albanian and the famously isolated Basque language, are like Macedonian and Bulgarian: Latin and Sanskrit did not have them, although classical Greek did. It's pretty regular, but as a native speaker I never learned the rules as such. I infer from usage that one never uses the article in direct address, or if a possessive adjective precedes the title. As in English, possessive adjectives preempt an article.
That is strikingly not the case in Italian. But that isn't why I wrote this entry; I only noticed it when I started to figure out how to explain what I did set out to write about, which is a Chilean dialectal difference.
In Chile, it is also common to prepend a definite article to a person's name. Something similar occurs in Modern Greek. Defra is the successor to MAFF. A very useful word when one is discussing the upper- GI activity of swallows. Check the TV guide for local listings. She eventually pleaded guilty to a charge of hindering prosecution in the case, but served no time; she was stripped of her national title and banned from the USFSA , which bars her from any kind of official participation in USFSA-sanctioned events.
She was sentenced to do community service and three days in the Clark County jail in , for assaulting her then-boyfriend with a hubcap. She seems to favor blunt metal weapons. Amy should insist on metal detectors. About a month before Fox announced its shameless exploitation, Harding's landlord sued her for back rent. Tonya should insist on metal detectors. Amy did almost seven years in prison, and was released after a hearing in which the thick-skulled woman she tried to murder testified on her behalf.
According to Fox's alternative -programming chief Mike Darnell, quoted Feb. We'll have a real referee, a real doctor, real announcers. To all the world this will be a real boxing match.
Paula Jones is the woman who was afraid that Arkansas state troopers' stories about former governor Bill Clinton and an anonymous woman would ruin her reputation, and who therefore revealed that she was the anonymous woman. Whew -- I was worried that Tonya would have to guard her newly installed XL boob enhancements.
Read the latest on our girl at the CHL entry. The XFL folded; there's hope. But maybe not quite yet The Search for a Playboy Centerfold. Why does that name ring a bell? If this is a show they don't like or feel is appropriate, please don't watch.
Entertainment Television a cable network , was renewed for a second season to air in early And the Isaac Stern show on E!? Oh fiddlesticks -- make that the Howard Stern show. So maybe the Nicole show is really a knock-off of the Seinfeld show, except that it's stupid, crass, somewhat more explicitly sex-obsessed, and not funny.
Getting back to the Stern show -- this is really high concept: I mean, shows with some parts bleeped or obscured are nothing new, but making the nonbroadcastable element the main focus of the show -- that's shrewd.
In , National Geographic Magazine will have its first swimsuit issue. Perhaps they'll just use selections from the Miss World or Miss Universe swimsuit competition. Somehow I'm not expecting central African women with river blindness doing laundry the old-fashioned way.
So when did Fox buy National Geographic? As of April 15, , colleges where you can earn a Bachelor of Hair in just six months something like that can have their own. Okay, more from Fox: The show placed second in the ratings for its time slot Personality won decisively with the lucrative toyear-old demographic, however. Presumably, you're aware of the Jerry Springer show, and I needn't say more. In Britain the subtitles are said to come in handy. US productions began in In Belgium, Jerry's show is broadcast dubbed, but I don't know into which language or languages.
Italian is the natural language for that show, and it deserves the opera treatment. A lot of sopranos also have the perfect body style to fit into the capacious Mrs. For more on the Italian-English moving-pictures nexus, see the silent movie entry. I mention a detail or two at the SB entry for comedic context, see Uncle Miltie. But the Australians soon came roaring back, showing that no one can outFox them when it comes to gratuitous sexual exploitation in sports.
See Heidi United S. On January 22, , a news conference was held in New York to announce a match between a human heavyweight champion Lenox Lewis and an animal rapist, anthropophage, and former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson. At the end of , in a column for Fox News , Eric Burns complained about foul language on radio. He had already dealt with foul language on TV in earlier essays. I'm not saying his sentiments are entirely wrong or anything.
It's not as complicated as power-ball, everyone gets an equal chance, and of course, there's no studying. For the price of a ticket, you get a chance to win a genuine college degree, and get this: So you know you're getting the degree you deserve! Is that cool or what? This is such a deal. Don't tell your friends who already have their own degrees -- let other people have a chance, other people like you! I don't know for a fact certain that this exists, but I probably just don't read enough of my spam.
Not that there's anything surprising in that. A plasticizer in plastic food wrap. My work is done here. The US and Transnational Democracy. I only just heard about it myself today Tuesday, March 28, The conference will take place at George Mason University.
