Random information on the term “ACE”:

In baseball, an ace is the best starting pitcher on a team and nearly always the first pitcher in the team’s starting rotation. Barring injury or exceptional circumstances, an ace typically starts on Opening Day. In addition, aces are usually preferred to start crucial playoff games, sometimes on three days rest.

The term may be a derivation of the nickname of Asa Brainard, (real first name: “Asahel”), a 19th-century star pitcher, who was sometimes referred to as “Ace”.

In the early days of baseball, the term “ace” was used to refer to a run.

A lot of modern baseball analysts and fans have started using the term “ace” to refer to the elite pitchers in the game, not necessarily to the best starting pitcher on each team. For example, the April 27, 1981 Sports Illustrated cover was captioned “The Amazing A’s and Their Five Aces” to describe the starting rotation of the 1981 Oakland Athletics.

Random information on the term “NEAT”:

Near-Earth Asteroid Tracking (NEAT) was a program run by NASA and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, surveying the sky for near-Earth objects. NEAT was conducted from December 1995 until April 2007, at GEODSS on Hawaii (Haleakala-NEAT; 566), as well as at Palomar Observatory in California (Palomar-NEAT; 644). With the discovery of more than 40 thousand minor planets, NEAT has been one of the most successful programs in this field, comparable to the Catalina Sky Survey, LONEOS and Mount Lemmon Survey.

NEAT was the successor of the Palomar Planet-Crossing Asteroid Survey (PCAS).

The original principal investigator was Eleanor F. Helin, with co-investigators Steven H. Pravdo and David L. Rabinowitz.

NEAT has a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Air Force to use a GEODSS telescope located on Haleakala, Maui, Hawaii. GEODSS stands for Ground-based Electro-Optical Deep Space Surveillance and these wide field Air Force telescopes were designed to optically observe Earth orbital spacecraft. The NEAT team designed a CCD camera and computer system for the GEODSS telescope. The CCD camera format is 4096 × 4096 pixels and the field of view is 1.2° × 1.6°.

Random information on the term “TIP”:

Tip and ring are the names of the two conductors or sides of a telephone line. The terms originate in reference to the telephone plugs used for connecting telephone calls in manual switchboards. One side of the line is connected to the metal tip of the plug, and the second is connected to a metal ring behind the tip, separated and insulated from the tip by a non-conducting material. When inserted into a jack, the plug’s tip conductor connects first, followed by the ring conductor. In many European countries tip and ring are referred to as the A and B wires.

The ring conductor has a direct current (DC) potential of −48V to −52V with respect to tip conductor when the line is in the on-hook (idle) state. Neither conductor is referenced to ground. Floating both conductors (not referencing either one to ground) minimizes the pickup of hum from any nearby alternating current (AC) power wires.

The terms tip and ring originated in the early days of telephony when telephone operators used plugs to connect customer calls. They are named after the parts of the plug to which the wires were connected. The words are often abbreviated as T and R.

Random information on the term “AOK”:

AOK is a studio album by Polish singer and dancer Mandaryna, released in 2009.

The main producer of AOK was Ali Alien. It is said that this person is in fact Michał Wiśniewski.

Musically, the album references electro-pop works of artists such as Lady Gaga. The album was expected to be a big comeback for the singer, after her 2005 Mandarynkowy sen album and legal problems in the following years, but turned out a commercial failure. AOK did not chart and only 5,000 copies were sold. The lead single, “Good Dog Bad Dog”, met with considerable success, but the release of the second single, “High”, was cancelled.

Random information on the term “TOPS”:

The British Rail Class 700 is an electric multiple-unit passenger train being built for Thameslink as part of the Thameslink Programme in the United Kingdom.

A fleet of 60 eight- and 55 twelve- car trains is expected to enter service between spring 2016 and 2018. Associated rolling stock depots are being built at Hornsey and Three Bridges. The first train was delivered in late July 2015.

In 2011 the consortium Cross London Trains (XLT) consisting of Siemens Project Ventures, 3i Infrastructure and Innisfree was announced as preferred bidder with Siemens to manufacture the trains. The decision was politically controversial as the trains were to be built in Germany, while the competing consortium led by Bombardier Transportation had a train factory in the UK. Both the procurement process and final close of contract were significantly delayed, resulting in the expected first delivery date moving from 2012 to 2016. The £1.6 billion contract to manufacture and provide service depots for the trains was finalised in June 2013.

Random information on the term “GREAT”:

Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E.) is an education program that seeks to prevent use of controlled drugs, membership in gangs, and violent behavior. It was founded in Los Angeles in 1983 as a joint initiative of then-LAPD chief Daryl Gates and the Los Angeles Unified School District as a demand-side drug control strategy of the American War on Drugs.

Students who enter the program sign a pledge not to use drugs or join gangs and are informed by local police officers about the government’s beliefs about the dangers of recreational drug use in an interactive in-school curriculum which lasts ten weeks.

D.A.R.E. America’s operating revenue has declined from $10 million in 2002 to $3.7 million in 2010 following the publication of government reports that uniformly discredited the effectiveness of the program. D.A.R.E implemented a new curriculum based on work by Penn State and Arizona State researchers.

Its American headquarters is in Inglewood, California. DARE expanded to Great Britain in 1995.

Random information on the term “SELECT”:

The SQL SELECT statement returns a result set of records from one or more tables.

A SELECT statement retrieves zero or more rows from one or more database tables or database views. In most applications, SELECT is the most commonly used data query language (DQL) command. As SQL is a declarative programming language, SELECT queries specify a result set, but do not specify how to calculate it. The database translates the query into a “query plan” which may vary between executions, database versions and database software. This functionality is called the “query optimizer” as it is responsible for finding the best possible execution plan for the query, within applicable constraints.

The SELECT statement has many optional clauses:

Given a table T, the query SELECT * FROM T will result in all the elements of all the rows of the table being shown.

With the same table, the query SELECT C1 FROM T will result in the elements from the column C1 of all the rows of the table being shown. This is similar to a projection in Relational algebra, except that in the general case, the result may contain duplicate rows. This is also known as a Vertical Partition in some database terms, restricting query output to view only specified fields or columns.

Random information on the term “PRIME”:

In computational number theory, the Adleman–Pomerance–Rumely primality test is an algorithm for determining whether a number is prime. Unlike other, more efficient algorithms for this purpose, it avoids the use of random numbers, so it is a deterministic primality test. It is named after its discoverers, Leonard Adleman, Carl Pomerance, and Robert Rumely. The test involves arithmetic in cyclotomic fields.

It was later improved by Henri Cohen and Hendrik Willem Lenstra, commonly referred to as APR-CL. It can test primality of an integer n in time:

Random information on the term “CLASSA”:

Getafe Air Base (ICAO: LEGT) is a military airbase located in Getafe, 14 km south of Madrid, Spain. The air base, at an altitude of 620 m above sea level, has a single runway with a length of 3.06 km. It was one of the first military air bases in Spain and, because of that, is considered the “cradle” of Spanish aviation.

The base was inaugurated in 1911 (20 years before Madrid Barajas International Airport) and two years later the Civil Aviation School was created.

In summer 1957, 12 two-pilot plus flight engineer crews flew to Gatafe from Evreux, France, for the purpose of a one time flight to the SABENA facility at the Brussels airport.

Nowadays, apart from military use, an EADS CASA factory is situated next to the base. It commonly uses the facilities to transport Airbus aircraft parts to Toulouse. In another factory next to the base, the Spanish Eurofighter Typhoons are assembled. The air traffic is light and mainly military.

The main military unit to operate from Getafe is the “Ala 35” transport wing, which operates CASA CN-235 (two units for VIP missions, eighteen units for transport) and EADS CASA C-295 (nine units for transport).

Random information on the term “CLASSY”:

Monthly Classy Magazine is a Japanese women’s magazine. Its title Classy is derived from the English adjective classy. It is estimated that the average reader of Classy magazine is between the age of 24 and 28. The magazine is known to be popular with office ladies (widely known as OL in Japan). It is also famous among university students as a magazine for Onekei (お姉系?) fashion.

Classy was first published in 1984. The magazine is published by Kobunsha.

The magazine targets women in their 20s. It is a sister magazine of JJ, and has been published since 1984 by the same company. The two magazines are closely linked, and often, models who posed for JJ magazine in their youth will return a few years later to model for Classy.

In the beginning, most of the models were American supermodels, however changes in the policy led to the inclusion of more and more local models. Famous Japanese supermodels, namely Umemiya Anna (梅宮 アンナ?) and Aoyama Kyoko (青山 恭子?) started their modeling careers by appearing as cover girls in the magazine.

Random information on the term “TIPTOP”:

Tip Top is a ghost town in Yavapai County in the U.S. state of Arizona. The town was settled in 1876 in what was then the Arizona Territory.

Primarily a silver-mining town, it had a post office from August 12, 1880, until February 14, 1895. The town was founded after Jack Moore and Bill Corning struck a significant lode of silver in 1875.

The nearby ghost town of Gillett was the original mill site for the ore from the Tip Top mine.

Tip Top at its peak had over 500 residents and was one of the largest towns in Arizona at the time.

Many ruins still exist in Tip Top today.

Tip Top is the setting for The Nightjar Women, the last story in the weird western anthology Merkabah Rider: Tales of a High Planes Drifter by Edward M. Erdelac.

Random information on the term “CHOICE”:

In mathematics, any of the positive integers that occurs as a coefficient in the binomial theorem is a binomial coefficient. Commonly, a binomial coefficient is indexed by a pair of integers n ≥ k ≥ 0 and is written

(

n

)

{\displaystyle {\tbinom {n}{k}}}

. It is the coefficient of the xk term in the polynomial expansion of the binomial power (1 + x)n, which is equal to

n
!

k
!
(

Random information on the term “CRACK”:

Cracks is a 2009 independent drama psychological thriller film starring Eva Green, James McGovern, Juno Temple, María Valverde, and Imogen Poots, which was released theatrically in the UK and Ireland on 4 December 2009. In the United States it was released by IFC Films on 18 March 2011, and premiered on Showtime in late 2011.

The film was produced in May 2008, written for the screen by Caroline Ip, Ben Court and Jordan Scott, based on the 1999 novel written by Sheila Kohler, directed by Jordan Scott and produced by Kwesi Dickson, Andrew Lowe, Julie Payne, Rosalie Swedlin and Christine Vachon. Ridley and Tony Scott serve as executive producers. The film was mostly filmed in County Wicklow, Ireland.

Set in the 1930s in a strict elite British boarding school called St Mathilda’s, the story centers on a clique of girls who idolize their enigmatic diving instructor, Miss G (Eva Green) (in the film, we learn that Miss G had been a student at the same school where she now works and, in fact, may have even continued on at the school after she graduated). Di Radfield (Juno Temple) has a crush on Miss G, and is the firm favourite and ringleader of her group. When a beautiful Spanish girl named Fiamma Coronna (María Valverde) arrives at the school, Miss G’s focus is shifted away from the other girls. It becomes a triangle: Miss G gets increasingly obsessed with Fiamma, Fiamma is disturbed by Miss G and also openly disgusted by the teacher’s hypocrisies and deceptions, and Di is terribly jealous and makes Fiamma’s life hell. In a very telling scene in the film that clearly highlighted Miss G’s deceptions, Miss G (who claimed to be a world traveller to her “girls”) goes to a nearby parochial town to buy some provisions. She is visibly upset by this trip and after buying her provisions and drawing the unwanted attention of some local louts, she returns to the school in, it would seem, a near panic. The bullying culminates in Di physically throwing Fiamma out of the school but, as she is unable to return to Spain as she hoped, Fiamma ends up back at the school later that night.
