THE PRESIDENT OF LOCKHEED AIRCRAFT CORPORATION
and Vice President Lyndon Johnson agreed to end
Lockheed’s workforce segregation on May 25, 1961.
Looking back, this contract, which was announced with great
fanfare at the White House, signified far more than the public
acknowledgment of systematic racial segregation in employment.
It illustrated the leading role that prominent corporations
were beginning to embrace by hiring and promoting the
widest range of workers in this country.
Fall is rodent time. This means it’s also time to step up your
rodent monitoring and control efforts. Food resources in the
fields and woods are beginning to get scarce for rats and mice
this time of the year, forcing them to move into poultry houses
where food and water are plentiful. Be ready by tightening up
your poultry houses and having plenty of rodenticide on hand.
Start with a walk around the poultry houses. Be alert for signs
of new rodent activity (gnawing, bits of fallen insulation,
droppings, tail marks and tracks). Note the...
Computer technology has made incredible progress in the past half century. In
1945, there were no stored-program computers. Today, a few thousand dollars
will purchase a personal computer that has more performance, more main memory,
and more disk storage than a computer bought in 1965 for $1 million. This
rapid rate of improvement has come both from advances in the technology used
to build computers and from innovation in computer design. While technological
improvements have been fairly steady, progress arising from better computer
architectures has been much less consistent.
Ca Mau and Bac Lieu provinces were split from Minh Hai province
in the beginning of 1997. Since then, the economy of Ca Mau province has

forestry and fisheries.

Linear media describes media with a defined beginning and a linear
progression to the end. Forms of linear media such as film, audio and
videotape, as well as most books are organized with this expectation. The
World Wide Web, however, is organized differently.
Hypermedia is about choice. Users simply select what interests them. A
good example is an audio CD where you can choose song 5 and listen to
it almost immediately. Contrast this with an audiotape where you would
have to scan through from your current location on the tape to the
beginning of the song....
The intermediate level is often a milestone for students: at this point, many students really begin to 'take off in terms of their ability to communicate. Some students, however, may see the intermediate level as a 'plateau' and feel that they arE no longer making the progress they were before.
Electrical consumption, especially direct or variable frequency currents, has
strongly increased over 50 years in industry. This situation explains the growth of
At the beginning, when rectifiers replaced DC machines, only diodes and
thyristors were used. Then power transistors appeared and enabled the extension of
smaller power applications for domestic use. New research topics were developed
around converters and power devices.
If there is a part of dollmaking I dislike, it is making the body. With most of my dolls, which begin as a set of sculpted parts, I have to do something to hook all the parts together. However, the structure while in progress just doesn't thrill me, but the process must be done, and done well, because I know that the body and the movement of the piece can make or ruin the doll as a completed and successful piece. The greatest sculpture and the most fantastic costuming will not amount to anything if they are hung on...
