Air liaison officers (ALOs) play an important interservice role as U.S. Air Force officers collocated with U.S. Army units, providing air-ground support and advising ground commanders on related issues. Under the current system, ALO duty is restricted to career aviators, and this approach seems to meet all the requirements of both services. However, there are compelling reasons for the Air Force to consider a dedicated ALO career field,
There are a number of good reasons to ground but primary among them
is to ensure personnel safety. The following agencies and organizations
all have recommendations and / or standards for grounding, to ensure
that personnel safety is being protected.
Presented in this document are requirements for design, inspection, and certification of ground-based pressure vessels and pressurized systems (PV/S) owned and/or operated by JSC and of all PV/S used on JSC property. JSC organizations must implement these requirements on PV/S for which they have the responsibility.
This applies to all PV/S used on JSC property.
Comments and questions concerning this document should be directed to the JSC Pressure Systems Manager, mail code NS2, member of the Safety and Test Operations Division....
The telephone system remains as the backbone of low-cost telecommunications services in North
America. An understanding of the telephone system is necessary when considering its use for data
Telephone: invented in 1874 by Alexander Graham Bell and patented in 1876
Single wire: In the beginning, the market was for telephones only. It is the customer who used to
wire them between telephones using single wires and the earth as the ground or the
other conductor to complete the circuit.
A Unix system can easily be identified by its prompts. When you first
connect to a Unix system, you should receive the login prompt, which is usually
"Login:" (Note, that the first character may or may not be capitalized.) On
some systems, this prompt may be ";Login:" or "User:" (Again, the first letter
may or may not be capitalized.) This may be preceded by a short message,
The study of geology, soils in the selection of sites for water spreading or infiltration recharging system are rather more important than for any well recharging systems. The basic aspects, which are considered, are: Moving the water through the vadose zone Making the water move through aquifer away from infiltration recharge sites so as to raise water buildup of ground water mound or ridge Therefore, for infiltration recharge systems the following area characteristics are desirable...
LINUX IS A MULTIUSER, multitasking operating system from the ground up, and in
this regard the system administrator has flexibility — and responsibility — far
beyond those of other operating systems. Now, Red Hat has employed innovations
that extend these duties even for the experienced Linux user. In this chapter, we
look at those requirements.

Work on Deisboeck and Kresh's Complex Systems Science in BioMedicine
started years ago. In fact, thoughts and ideas leading up to this textbook date
back to our first conversation, sometime in the fall of 1996. We quickly found
common ground, and talked about emergence and self-organization and their
relevance for medicine. We were both fascinated by the idea of complexity and
marveled about its tremendous possibilities for cancer research, which was then
and still is Tom's main scientific interest. Much has happened in science and
technology since we first discussed our vision.
Vibrations occur all around us: in the human body, in mechanical systems and
sensors, in buildings and structures, and in vehicles used in the air, on the ground,
and in the water. In some cases, these vibrations are undesirable and attempts are
made to avoid them or to minimize them; in other cases, vibrations are controlled
and put to beneficial uses. Until recently, many of the application areas of vibrations
have been largely concerned with objects having one or more of its dimensions
being tens of centimeters and larger, a size that we shall denote as the macro scale.
This book makes no pretence of giving to the world a new theory of the intellectual operations. Its claim to
attention, if it possess any, is grounded on the fact that it is an attempt not to supersede, but to embody and
systematize, the best ideas which have been either promulgated on its subject by speculative writers, or
conformed to by accurate thinkers in their scientific inquiries.
Air Force Space Command (AFSPC) needs quantitative tools to assist it in making decisions on how changes in the dollars invested in maintenance and sustainment of the ground segment of space systems affect the operational performance of those systems. This monograph outlines criteria for analyzing how sustainment
In spite of decades of research on word sense disambiguation (WSD), all-words general purpose WSD has remained a distant goal. Many supervised WSD systems have been built, but the effort of creating the training corpus - annotated sense marked corpora - has always been a matter of concern. Therefore, attempts have been made to develop unsupervised and knowledge based techniques for WSD which do not need sense marked corpora. However such approaches have not proved effective, since they typically do not better Wordnet ﬁrst sense baseline accuracy. ...
Learning a semantic lexicon is often an important ﬁrst step in building a system that learns to interpret the meaning of natural language. It is especially important in language grounding where the training data usually consist of language paired with an ambiguous perceptual context. Recent work by Chen and Mooney (2011) introduced a lexicon learning method that deals with ambiguous relational data by taking intersections of graphs.
(BQ) Ebook Ground Anchors and Anchored Structures focuses on designs that are safe and reasonably priced. It is divided into two parts. Following a general introduction in the first chapter, Part One goes on to explore anchor systems, components, installation and construction details. Presents special anchor systems such as extractable, compression-type, multibell, and regroutable anchors.

Litter is garbage—like food, paper, and cans—
on the ground or in the street. Where many
people live together, litter is a problem. People
don't always put their garbage in the garbage
can. It's easier to drop a paper than to find a
garbage can for it. But litter is ugly.

Quality Do-It-Yourself Book
. When I set out to write this book, I wanted it to be
user friendly, easy to understand, and easy to apply in solving electrical power system
problems that engineers and technicians confront on a daily basis. As an electrical
engineer dealing with power system quality concerns, many of the books I consulted
lacked direct and precise information and required a very thorough search to find
what I needed.
Engineers use the concepts and methods of mechanics of solids in designing and evaluating tools, machines, and structures, ranging from wrenches to cars to spacecraft. The required educational back ground for these includes courses in statics, dynamics, mechanics of materials, and related subjects.
For the earthquake motion level 1, the elastic limit
the value of a structure is usually adopted seismic activity. For Level 2 earthquake
motion, on the other hand, the limit value that a structure does not collapse or
repair through the seismic activity depends on the importance of
Level 2 earthquake motions are used for verification is based on the records of strong motion
seismograms obtained from the Hyogoken Nanbu earthquake and the other, and seismic
waveform types are assigned according to the ground....
