Lerner briefly moved on to direct computer services at Schlumberger, but returned full-time to Cisco in 1987. The name "Cisco" was derived from the city name, San Francisco, which is why the company's engineers insisted on using the lower case "cisco" in the early days. For Cisco's first product, Bosack adapted multiple-protocol router software originally written some years before by William Yeager, another Stanford employee who later joined Sun Microsystems. The company's first CEO was Bill Graves, who held the position from 1987 to 1988. In 1988, John Morgridge was appointed CEO. On February 16, 1990, Cisco Systems went public

It offers reasoning services for multiple TBox and ABox (as defined in DL). The system implements the DL (see ALCQHI) also known as (see SHIQ). This is the basic logic (see ALC (logic)) augmented with qualifying number restrictions, role hierarchies, inverse role, and transitive role. In addition to these basic features, RACER also provides facilities for algebraic reasoning including concrete domains for dealing with: RACER supports the specification of general terminological axiom. A TBox may contain general concept inclusion (GCIs), which state the subsumption relation between two concept term. Multiple definitions or even cyclic definitions of concepts can be handled by RACER. RACER implements the HTTP-based quasi-standard DIG for interconnecting DL systems with interfaces and applications using an XML-based protocol.

The company is headquartered in Lexington, Kentucky. Lexmark was formed in 1991 when IBM divested its printer and printer supply operations to the investment firm Clayton & Dubilier, Inc. in a leveraged buyout. Lexmark became a publicly traded company in 1995. In those early days, IBM became Lexmark's main customer for keyboards, as IBM contracted Lexmark to produce the Model M keyboard and some more cost-effective variants of it. IBM believed at the time that due to the development in technology there was no future anymore for a profitable printer business: the "paperless office" was expected to become reality soon. The firm's corporate and R&D offices are located at the headquarters in Lexington. Lexmark has offices throughout North and South America, Asia, Africa and Europe. The company has more than 13,000 employees worldwide. Lexmark was a Fortune 500 company until they were ranked #507 in the 2009 Fortune 500 rankings.

    The Banque de France is the central bank of France; it is linked to the European Central Bank (ECB). Its main charge is to implement the interest rate policy of the European System of Central Banks (ESCB). It is headquartered in Paris. In 1800 financial power in France was in the hands of about ten to fifteen banking houses whose founders, in most cases, came from Switzerland in the second half of the eighteenth century. These bankers, all protestant, were deeply involved in the agitations leading up to the French Revolution. When the revolutionary violence got out of hand, they orchestrated the rise of Napoleon, whom they regarded as the restorer of order. As a reward for their support, Napoleon, in 1800, gave these bankers a monopoly over French finance by giving them control of the new Bank of France. On 1 June 1998, a new institution was created, the European Central Bank (ECB), charged with steering the single monetary policy for the euro. The body formed by the ECB, and the national central banks (NCB) of all the member states of the European Union, constitute the European System of Central Banks (ESCB).

    This laboratory is focused on the application of molecular imaging techniques towards studying radiobiology and improving clinical radiation oncology, with work spanning technique development, basic research, and clinical translation. We are currently engineering methods to image the lack of oxygen (hypoxia) in tumors as well as the downstream molecular effects of this phenotype. We are developing novel oxygen-insensitive and oxygen-calibrated reporter gene methods to accomplish this goal, and are also constructing and evaluating radiotracers for positron emission tomography (PET) that bind to hypoxia-regulated proteins. In addition, we are applying existing hypoxia-specific radiotracers such as [18F]-FAZA to study hypoxia in subcutaneous, orthotopic, and spontaneous tumor models, and comparing these measurements of tumor oxygenation with indicators of hypoxia-regulated physiology obtained from our novel methods. We are also engaged in the development of conformal radiotherapy technology, analogous to that used clinically, that can be applied to animal models of disease. We have modified a microCT scanner to achieve this goal, and this hybrid unit is currently being applied to study the radiation response of orthotopic and spontaneous tumor models. This unit is also being integrated with small animal molecular imaging methods to develop clinically-translatable protocols for incorporating mo-lecular imaging into radiation oncology.

    Tuxera Inc. is a Finnish company specialized in developing file systems' software, whose most widely deployed commercial software is "Tuxera NTFS for Mac". It was founded in 2008 by Szabolcs Szakacsits, current President and CTO. The origin of the company comes from open source Linux NTFS drivers. NTFS had been introduced in 1993 by Microsoft, as the file system for Windows NT. In 1999 Anton Altaparmakov started developing an NTFS driver for Linux. This open source project saw a great amount of evolution and became very popular. The NTFS-3G era began in 2006 when Szabolcs Szakacsits took the leadership of a new initiative to develop NTFS open source drivers for any possible platform. When NTFS-based operating systems (Windows XP, Windows Vista) became more popular and widespread, a demand for NTFS support other than GNU/Linux grew. Then, in September 2008 Szakacsits decided to start a company called NTFS-3G Technology Ltd to commercialize the new versions of the driver. In 2009 the company changed its name to Tuxera, which expresses the development for a wider range of platforms and file systems. In August Tuxera signed IPR and commercial agreements with Microsoft to develop exFAT

The company has evolved from a developer of an embedded "instant-on" commercial Linux distribution (built into the motherboard of PC vendors and other device manufacturers) into a software developer of remote-control and streaming technology. Both Splashtop Remote and Splashtop OS are explained in this article. Splashtop Remote allows a user to remotely connect to a main computer from another computer or mobile device to access content or run applications. Splashtop Remote Desktop is based on technology that "encodes" the screen pixels of a main computer, transmits them via the Internet, Wi-Fi, or other network protocol to a client device, where it "decodes" the transmitted data and displays it on the screen of a client device. This affords users an experience similar to sitting in front of the remote computer and controlling it. The Remote Desktop iOS client provides two connection modes.

In 1925, a secondary school evolved from the primary grades and was called Dunbar Junior High School, No. 133. By 1940 Dunbar was a full fledged high school and awarded its first diploma, the second "African American" school in Baltimore to do so. Dunbar is a magnet school like Baltimore City College and Baltimore Polytechnic Institute. Dunbar's programs include biotechnology, Emergency Medical Technology (EMT), Accounting, Nursing and Health Care Delivery Systems. It is similar to Paul Laurence Dunbar High School in Washington, D.C. and Fort Worth, Texas, as all three schools have a majority African American student body and are of a major importance to the local African American

    Polskie Koleje Państwowe SA (PKP SA, English: Polish State Railways, Inc.) is the dominant railway operator in Poland. The company was founded when the former Polskie Koleje Państwowe state-owned operator was divided into several units based on the requirements laid down by the European Union. PKP SA is the dominant company in PKP Group collective that resulted from the split, and maintains in 100% share control, being fully responsible for management of all of the other PKP Group component companies. The group's organisations are dependent upon PKP SA, but proposals for privatisation have been made. In Poland there are 23,429 kilometres (14,558 mi) of railway tracks managed by PKP SA and owned by the state. The pricing system currently employed by PKP is highly regressive. On international routes such as, for example, the Berlin-Warszawa Express and the IC-Nightbus Warsaw – Vilnius, a global pricing system is in use which requires one to buy two separate tickets (one in each direction) in place of a single consolidated return ticket. The long distance and local trains' pricing systems are separated from each other in entirety and thus tickets issued by local train operators cannot

    Symantec Corporation (NASDAQ: SYMC) is an American global computer security software corporation headquartered in Mountain View, California. It is a Fortune 500 company and a member of the S&P 500 stock market index. Founded in 1982 by Gary Hendrix with a National Science Foundation grant, Symantec was originally focused on artificial intelligence-related projects, including a database program. Hendrix hired several Stanford University natural language processing researchers as the company's first employees, among them Barry Greenstein (professional poker player and developer of the word processor component within Q&A). In 1984 it became clear that the advanced natural language and database system that Symantec had developed could not be ported from DEC minicomputers to the PC. This left Symantec without a product, but with expertise in natural language database query systems and technology. As a result, later in 1984 Symantec was acquired by another, smaller software startup company, C&E Software, founded by Denis Coleman and Gordon Eubanks and headed by Eubanks. C&E Software was in the process of developing an integrated file management and word processing program. The merged

From its founding in 1980 until 2000, it was also a major disk storage manufacturer (usually #2 in market share behind Seagate), and was based in Milpitas, California. Quantum got its start when executives and designers from Shugart Associates, IBM and Memorex came up with an idea for an 8-inch hard drive that would achieve decent performance without the cost or complexity of using a full closed-loop servo system — a difficult task before the advent of dedicated servo ICs and readily-available DSPs. Quantum's first products were very popular; according to one of the company's historical documents, by 1982 it had a 25% share of the market. It designed smaller ST-506-compatible versions of its hard drives, the Q500 series, using the same servo system. It also introduced (through its Plus Development division) what would be most people's introduction to the company, the Plus Hardcard, in 1985.

    Angola LNG is a liquefied natural gas (LNG) project to be located in Soyo, Angola. The Angola LNG plant will be a single train facility with production capacity of 5.2 million tonnes per year. The plant will use ConocoPhillips' proprietary natural gas liquefaction technology (Optimized CascadeSM Process). In addition to LNG, it will also produce propane, butane and condensate. The plant will be supplied from offshore gas fields on blocks 14, 15, 17 and 18, and from non-associated gas fields Quiluma, Atum, Polvo and Enguia. The LNG project is presented as environmentally friendly by its designers, because most of its feedstock will consist of associated gas produced in association with crude oil in offshore field, that is currently flared. The LNG plant is expected to cost US$9 billion, and it would be commissioned in 2012. The plant will be constructed by Bechtel. The project was initially proposed to Sonangol by Texaco in June, 1997. The project, jointly managed by Sonangol and Texaco, continued evaluation processes and brought in outside partners (originally ExxonMobil, Elf Aquitaine, and BP.)

This enabled the Center to operate more effectively to support and transfer technology for the development of industry, agriculture, natural resources, environment and consequently the social and economic well-being of Thai people. Other centers under the NSTDA family include National Metal and Materials Technology Center (MTEC), National Electronics and Computer Technology Center (NECTEC), National Nanotechnology Center (NANOTEC) and Technology Management Center (TMC). During 2007-2008, NSTDA and its centers underwent organization re-structuring, with particular focus on research funding. From 1 October 2008, research funding activities and research program management are coordinated under the Cluster and Program Management Office under NSTDA, and BIOTEC now functions as a research institute, no longer a funding agency. BIOTEC income is sourced from government funding and revenues from providing services/commercialization and non-government entities such as international funding agencies and private foundations.

Credit Suisse became a shareholder in a large number of financial services companies that it itself founded and setup management for. In the 1900s it created branches and deposit counters in response to the development of retail banking.

    The Fool

    • Members: Apple Boutique
    The Fool were a Dutch design collective and band who were influential in the psychedelic style of art in British popular music in the late 1960s. The colourful art draws on many fantastical and mystical themes. The group was named in reference to The Fool tarot card. The original members were Dutch artists Simon (Seemon) Posthuma and Marijke Koger, who were discovered by photographer Karl Ferris among the hippie community on the Spanish island of Ibiza in 1966. He took photographs of clothes designed by them, and sent them to London where they were published in The Times (London) and immediately caused a sensation. Ferris took The Fool back to London, and together they opened a studio, with the Dutch artists producing clothes and art, and Ferris pursuing photography. Barry Finch and artist Josje Leeger joined later. All had been involved with Beatles manager Brian Epstein's Saville Theatre and with the design of the facade and much of the merchandise of The Beatles' Apple Boutique store. Their work includes: The Fool's best known artworks are those they created for The Beatles in 1966–67. They include: It would appear that, contrary to popular belief, The Fool did not create the

    Victory Motorcycles

    Victory Motorcycles is a motorcycle manufacturer based in Spirit Lake, Iowa, United States, which began production of its vehicles in 1998. Its parent company, Polaris Industries, created the firm following the modern success of Harley-Davidson. Victory's motorcycles are designed to compete directly with Harley-Davidson and similar American-style motorcycle brands, with V-twin engines and touring, sport-touring, and cruiser configurations. The first Victory, the V92C, was announced in 1997 and began selling in 1998. Victory has been modestly profitable since 2002. Polaris, a Minnesota company with sales of approximately $1.9 billion per year, was one of the earliest manufacturers of snowmobiles. Polaris also manufactures ATVs and, until recently, personal watercraft. Seeking to diversify its product line, and observing the sales enjoyed by Harley-Davidson and other manufacturers, the company decided to produce a large motorcycle built entirely in the United States. Victory vehicles follow the traditional American style of a heavier motorcycle that increasingly became associated with the Harley-Davidson brand in economically advanced nations after the Second World War, rather than

    Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (C-DAC) is a research and development organization under the Department of Information Technology, India. After being denied Cray supercomputers as a result of a technology embargo, India started a program to develop an indigenous supercomputer in collaboration with Russia. Supercomputers were considered a double edged weapon capable of assisting in the development of nuclear weapons. For the purpose of achieving self sufficiency in the field, C-DAC was established by the Department of Electronics in 1988. Vijay Bhatkar was hired as the Director of C-DAC. The project was given an initial run of 3 years and an initial funding of 30,00,00,000 as the same amount of money and time was usually expended to secure the purchase of a supercomputer from the US. In 1990, a prototype was produced and was benchmarked at the 1990 Zurich Supercomputering Show. It surpassed most other systems, placing second after US. The final result of the effort was the PARAM 8000, which was installed in 1991. It is considered India's first supercomputer. Originally established to research and assemble High Performance Computers, the research of C-DAC has spread

Owned and operated by the New Life Evangelistic Center, the call letters KNLC reflect New Life Evangelistic Center. On February 4, 2009, KNLC added its first subchannel on 24.2, Renewable Energy Satellite (RES), which has programming featuring various renewable energy methods. The subchannel is operated by Missouri Renewable Energy (MORE), a non-profit group associated with the New Life Evangelistic Center. KNLC shut down its analog signal on January 19, 2009, so KMOV can put up its permanent digital signal on channel 24, as its current one (channel 56) has been removed from broadcasting purposes, and continued to broadcast on its pre-transition digital channel 14. Through the use of PSIP, digital television receivers display its virtual channel as 24. Because of these conversion arrangements, KNLC partnered with KMOV to raise funds to purchase digital converter boxes for low-income viewers. The Reverend Larry Rice, founder of the New Life Evangelistic Center, can frequently be seen on KNLC giving sermons. The station began operation in 1982 with a wall to wall religious format

    Mentor Graphics, Inc is a US-based multinational corporation dealing in electronic design automation (EDA) for electrical engineering and electronics, as of 2004, ranked third in the EDA industry it helped create. The company, founded in 1981, is headquartered in Wilsonville, Oregon, and employs roughly 4,400 people worldwide. In 1981, the idea of computer-aided design for electronics as the foundation of a company occurred to several groups - those who founded Mentor, Valid Logic Systems, and Daisy Systems. One of the main distinctions between these groups was that the founding engineers of Mentor, whose backgrounds were in software development at Tektronix, ruled out designing and manufacturing proprietary computers to run their software applications. They felt that hardware was going to become a commodity owned by big computer companies, so instead they would select an existing computer system as the hardware platform for the Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) programs they would build. By February 1981, most of the start-up team had been identified; by March, the three executive founders, Tom Bruggere, Gerry Langeler and Dave Moffenbeier had left Tektronix, and by May the

    Soongsil University (SSU) is a private Christian university in South Korea. The campus is located in 369 Sangdo-ro, Dongjak-gu, Seoul. Soongsil University was founded on October 10, 1897 in Pyongyang as a private school by Dr. William M. Baird, a missionary of the Northern Presbyterian Church of America. In 1900 the school was developed into an official 4-year junior high school. In October 1901 the school was named Soongsil Hakdang (숭실학당, "Soongsil Academy"). The name, Soongsil (숭실), roughly means "Revering [God] (숭 soong) with Truth and Integrity (실 sil)". In 1905 the Hakdang was permitted by the missionary body to establish a university (called Union Christian College), which was later authorized as a university by Korean government in 1907. But in 1925 the school was forcibly reduced to a 4-year technical school of humanities (named 숭실전문학교 (崇實專門學校), pronounced Sūjitsu Senmon Gakkō in Japanese). On March 4, 1938 the school closed itself in order to protest against the enforcement of Shinto shrine worship. In August 1945 Korea was liberated from Japanese colonialism, but the effort to restore the Soongsil College did not succeed until after the end of the Korean War. In April

    The computational linguistics program at Stanford is one of the oldest in the country, and offers a wide range of courses and research opportunities. At Stanford we take a very broad view of computational linguistics, encompassing both theoretical and applied studies, and covering diverse linguistic areas from computational phonology, morphology, and syntax, to computational semantics, pragmatics, and sociolinguistics. Among our theoretical foci are models for parsing and learning grammatical structure, models of communication, conversation, and dialogue, and computational psycholinguistic models of human language comprehension and production. We also work on key applications in human language technology such as multi-party dialogue systems, machine translation, sentence understanding, probabilistic parsing and tagging, speech recognition, speech synthesis, biomedical information extraction, grammar induction, word sense disambiguation, and automatic question answering.

Naturally occurring species show spectacular differences in morphology, physiology, lifestyle, and behavior. They also differ in disease susceptibility and life span. Although the genomes of many organisms have now been completely sequenced, we still know relatively little about the specific DNA sequence changes that underlie interesting species-specific traits. The Kingsley laboratory is using a combination of genetic and genomic approaches to identify the detailed molecular mechanisms that control evolutionary change in vertebrates. Research includes research projects in mice, sticklebacks, and humans.
