I"What do I do for a living?" repeated the slim dark-skinned young man in the next seat of the Earth-Moon liner. "I'm a witch doctor," he answered with complete sincerity. "What do you do?

All languages have phrases that cannot be understood
literally and, therefore, cannot be used with
confidence. They are opaque or unpredictable
because they don’t have expected, literal meaning.
Even if you know the meaning of all the words in
a phrase and understand all the grammar of the
phrase completely, the meaning of the phrase may
still be confusing. A phrase or sentence of this
type is said to be idiomatic. This dictionary is a
collection of the idiomatic phrases and sentences
that occur frequently in American English.
This month’s issue marks the first time, at least to
my knowledge, that a topic such as artificial intelligence
has been discussed on a PHP publication.
AI is one of those topics most people talk about without
really understanding its capabilities—and this has
resulted in a lot of confusion out there. If you’re worried
that your server will become sentient and try to
take over the world (or, worse, spend all your money),
you can rest assured that that will not be the case (at
least until you run Internet Explorer—that’ll do the

Guide to Creating Website Information Architecture and Content
Information architecture (IA) is an often-overlooked area of website design. Too often, as designers, we just let the CMS we’re using dictate how content for a site is organized. And that works fine as long as the site fits perfectly into the narrow content formats most CMSs are designed around.
But too often, a website’s content breaks the boundaries of most CMSs.

The rapidly changing pace of information technology leads to acronyms and terms being created and used
seemingly overnight. This glossary is a guide to the most commonly used and confused IT terms designed to
help managers better communicate with (and understand) their IT staff.
When I first began discussing the concept of a book on governmental accounting
for nonaccountants, the publisher, John Wiley & Sons, Inc., asked a
good question: “Who would be interested in a book on governmental accounting
who is not an accountant?” The quick answers were obvious—bond underwriters
and investors, lawyers, elected officials, financial and other managers working in
government, labor unions, and so forth.
Robotic surgery is still in the early stages even though robotic assisted surgery is increasing continuously. Thus, exact and careful understanding of robotic surgery is necessary because chaos and confusion exist in the early phase of anything. Especially, the confusion may be increased because the robotic equipment, which is used in surgery, is different from the robotic equipment used in the automobile factory. The robots in the automobile factory just follow a program.
All else being equal, a bond fund with a longer average maturity or
average duration will usually generate higher interest income than
one with a shorter average maturity or duration.This basic
relationship holds true because longer-term bonds must pay higher
interest rates than shorter-term bonds to compensate for the risk
that future events (such as rising interest rates or inflation) will
erode the bond investment’s value.
This emphasis on the spectacular and exotic, consistent with an oppositional or
marginal view of the consumer, is often also emphasised in academic writing on
counterfeiting. Consumers of counterfeits are often represented through anecdotal
narratives which serve as a proxy for deeper understanding of consumer motivations.
For example, Lasica (2005) illustrates his work with case studies which potentially
confuse everyday users with vanguard consumers.
