High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Railways have played an important part in the history and development of the English county of Norfolk. It currently has thirty open National Rail stations, through there were once well over a hundred. Between 1959 and 1970 much of the network was closed, including more than two thirds of Norfolk's railway stations, several main lines and most of the branch lines - leaving only a core network in place. Several of the former routes have been re-opened as heritage lines such as the North Norfolk Railway and the Mid-Norfolk Railway.
High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! In the mathematical field of set theory, an ultrafilter on a set X is a collection of subsets of X that is a filter, that cannot be enlarged (as a filter). An ultrafilter may be considered as a finitely additive measure. Then every subset of X is either considered "almost everything" (has measure 1) or "almost nothing" (has measure 0). If A is a subset of X, then either A or X A is an element of the ultrafilter (here X A is the relative complement of A in X; that is, the set of all elements of X that are not in A). The concept can be generalized to Boolean algebras or even to general partial orders, and has many applications in set theory, model theory, and topology.

In computing, Generic Mapping Tools (GMT) is an open-source collection of tools for processing and displaying xy and xyz datasets, including rasterisation, filtering and other image processing operations, and various kinds of map projections. The software comes with a comprehensive collection of free GIS data, such as coast lines, rivers, political borders and coordinates of other geographic objects. Users convert further data (like satellite imagery and digital elevation models) from other sources and import them. GMT stores the resulting maps and diagrams in PostScript (PS) or Encapsulated PostScript (EPS) format. Users operate the system from the command line: this enables scripting and the automation of routine tasks. More or less comprehensive graphic user interfaces are available from third parties, as well as web applications, bringing the system's functionality online.

Tolperisone, a piperidine derivative, is a centrally acting muscle relaxant. Brand names include Mydocalm and Mydeton.Typically, Tolperisone is indicated in the treatment of acute muscle spasms in back pain and spasticity in neurological diseases.Tolperisone is currently marketed in Europe as a centrally-acting muscle relaxant which reportedly has special advantages over other drugs of its class in that it is reported not to cause drowsiness or lethargy according to some manufacturers.Besides claiming that "Tolperisone has an excellent efficacy & safety profile" these manufacturers also state that Tolperisone has the unique property of mediating muscle relaxation without concomitant sedation nor does it cause impairment of coordination, weakness, mental confusion or withdrawal phenomena in contrast to other muscle relaxants.

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Rudolf Smend (November 5, 1851 - December 27, 1913) was a German theologian who was born in Lengerich, Westphalia. He was an older brother to theologian Julius Smend (1857-1930), and the father of Carl Friedrich Rudolf Smend (1882-1975), an authority on constitutional and ecclesiastical law. He studied theology at the Universities of Gottingen, Berlin and Bonn, earning his doctorate in 1874 with a dissertation on Arabic poetry. In 1880 he became an associate professor of the Old Testament at the University of Basel, where shortly afterwards he attained the title of full professor. In 1889 he returned to the University of Gottingen as a professor of Biblical science and Semitic languages. At Gottingen he was reunited with his former teacher Julius Wellhausen (1844-1918), who was a major influence in his professional career.
High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles Homeorhesis, derived from the Greek for "similar flow," is a concept encompassing dynamical systems which return to a trajectory, as opposed to systems which return to a particular state, which is termed homeostasis.The word itself is a little-used term of art in biology, where it describes the tendency of developing or changing organisms to continue development or change towards a given state, even if disturbed in development. The term was first coined by C.H. Waddington, on or before 1940, along with the related term chreod, meaning "necessary path," which is the trajectory to which the system tends to return.In ecology the concept is important as an element of the Gaia theory, where the system under consideration is the ecological balance of different forms of life on the planet. It was Lynn Margulis, the coauthor of Gaia hypotheses, who wrote in particular that only homeorhetic and not homeostatic balances are involved in the theory. That is, the composition of Earth's atmosphere, hydrosphere, and lithosphere are regulated around "set points" as in homeostasis, but those set points change with time.

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Sacred groves of India are forest fragments of varying sizes, which are communally protected, and which usually have a significant religious connotation for the protecting community. Hunting and logging are usually strictly prohibited within these patches. Other forms of forest usage like honey collection and deadwood collection are sometimes allowed on a sustainable basis. Sacred groves did not enjoy protection via federal legislation in India. Some NGOs work with local villagers to protect such groves. Traditionally, and in some cases even today, members of the community take turns to protect the grove. However, the introduction of the protected area category community reserves under the Wildlife (Protection) Amendment Act of 2002 has introduced legislation for providing government protection to community held lands, which could include sacred groves.
High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles 'Umar ibn Abi Rabi'ah (November 644, Mecca - 712/719, Mecca) was an Arabic poet from the modern-day country of Saudi Arabia. He is known for his love poetry and for being one of the originators of the literary form ghazel in Islamic literature. The ghazal is a poetic form consisting of rhyming couplets and a refrain, with each line sharing the same meter. A ghazal may be understood as a poetic expression of both the pain of loss or separation and the beauty of love in spite of that pain. The form is ancient, originating in 6th century pre-Islamic Arabic verse. It is derived from the Arabian panegyric qasida. The structural requirements of the ghazal are similar in stringency to those of the Petrarchan sonnet. In its style and content it is a genre which has proved capable of an extraordinary variety of expression around its central themes of love and separation. It is one of the principal poetic forms which the Indo-Perso-Arabic civilization offered to the eastern Islamic world.
High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles Die Achillesferse stammt als Begriff aus der griechischen Mythologie: Die rechte Ferse war die einzige Stelle, an welcher der Sagenheld Achilleus verwundbar war. Der Begriff wird heute vor allem als Metapher verwendet und bezeichnet eine verwundbare Stelle eines Systems oder einer Taktik. Als Sohn eines menschlichen Vaters und einer gttlichen Mutter, der Meeresgttin Thetis, war Achilleus sterblich. Thetis versuchte aber, ihn zumindest unverwundbar zu machen, und tauchte ihn in den Styx, den Fluss, der die Unterwelt von der Oberwelt trennt. Die Stelle an der Ferse, an der sie Achilleus mit der Hand hielt, blieb jedoch vom Wasser des Flusses unbenetzt, und wurde so zur einzigen verwundbaren Stelle. In den bekanntesten Versionen von Achilleus' Tod wurde er von Apollon selbst oder von einem Pfeil des Paris, der von Apollon gelenkt wurde, in die verwundbare Achillesferse getroffen. Die logischste Frage ist hier aber, ob eine Verwundung der Achillesferse zum Tod fhren kann. Jedoch wurde die Achillesferse aus der Mythologie zum Namensgeber der menschlichen Achillessehne.
High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles Rudolf Kreitlein (b. November 14, 1919 - d.) was a German international football referee and tailor in the 1950s and 1960s. Kreitlein is, perhaps, most well-known for his refereeing of the 1966 World Cup quarter-final match between England and Argentina in which he dismissed Antonio Rattin from the field of play in the 35th minute of the game for dissent. Rattin initially refused to leave the pitch, arguing furiously with Kreitlein (even though neither man understood each other's native language) and the game was held up for several minutes until Rattin reluctantly departed. It was also during that game that Jack Charlton was cautioned, only to discover the fact the next day from the newspaper report. As a result of this incident Ken Aston developed the idea of yellow cards and red cards to aid on-field communication in football. Kreitlein, who had never seen the match, requested a copy of the game from the Football Association in 2006. Kreitlein retired from international competition following the game.
High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Patrick Lachman (born March 30, 1970) was the guitarist of the band Diesel Machine (from 1996 to 2001), before joining the solo band from (at that time former) Judas Priest vocalist Rob Halford, titled Halford. After the release of Halford's debut album Resurrection, Lachman's other band Diesel Machine got the chance to release their own debut album, Torture Test, which had already been recorded several years earlier. With Halford he released a live album in 2001, Live Insurrection, and another studio album in 2002, Crucible. 2003 saw the release of a Halford EP called Fourging The Furnace, but in that year Rob Halford also announced he would return to Judas Priest. This looked like the end of the Halford band, so Patrick joined with former Pantera guitarist "Dimebag Darrell" Abbott and his brother, drummer Vinnie Paul Abbott in a new band called Damageplan, as their vocalist. Their debut album, New Found Power, was released in 2004.
High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Al-Kit b al-mukhta ar f h s b al- abr wa'l-muq bala (Arabic for "The Compendious Book on Calculation by Completion and Balancing," in Arabic script ' '), also known under a shorter name spelled as Hisab al-jabr w'al-muqabala, Kitab al-Jabr wa-l-Muqabala and other transliterations) is a mathematical book written in Arabic, in approximately AD 820 by the Persian mathematician, Muhammad ibn M s al-Khw rizm .The term "algebra" is derived from the al- abr in the title of this book, which is considered the foundational text of modern algebra. The al- abr provided an exhaustive account of solving for the positive roots of polynomial equations up to the second degree, and introduced the fundamental methods of "reduction" and "balancing," referring to the transposition of subtracted terms to the other side of an equation, that is, the cancellation of like terms on opposite sides of the equation.
High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Voxel based morphometry (VBM) is a neuroimaging analysis technique that allows investigation of focal differences in brain anatomy, using the statistical approach of so-called statistical parametric mapping. In traditional morphometry, volume of the whole brain or its subparts is measured by drawing regions of interest (ROIs) on images from brain scanning and calculating the volume enclosed. However, this is time consuming and can only provide measures of rather large areas. Smaller differences in volume may be overlooked. VBM registers every brain to a template, which gets rid of most of the large differences in brain anatomy among people. Then the brain images are smoothed so that each voxel represents the average of itself and its neighbors. Finally, the image volume is compared across brains at every voxel.

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The Theory of Cognitive Development, is a comprehensive theory about the nature and development of human intelligence first developed by Jean Piaget. It is primarily known as a developmental stage theory, but in fact, it deals with the nature of knowledge itself and how humans come gradually to acquire it, construct it, and use it. Moreover; Piaget claims the idea that cognitive development is at the centre of human organism and language is contingent on cognitive development. Below, there is first a short description of Piaget's views about the nature of intelligence and then a description of the stages through which it develops until maturity.

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The fishing port and holiday resort of Cromer in the English county of Norfolk has had a rail service since 1877. It was served by three railway stations for many years, and is now served by two. Cromer Beach station, which opened in 1887, was renamed Cromer following the closure of the other early stations. Cromer High, on the outskirts of the town, was opened in 1877 as the terminus of the Great Eastern Railway main line from London. It was followed in 1887 by Cromer Beach station, on the rural Midland and Great Northern Joint Railway (M&GNJR). Cromer Links Halt railway station, on the little-used and now closed Norfolk and Suffolk Joint Railway line to North Walsham via Overstrand and Mundesley, was opened in 1923.
High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! QBasic is an IDE and interpreter for a variant of the BASIC programming language which is based on QuickBasic. Code entered into the IDE is compiled to an intermediate form, and this intermediate form is immediately interpreted on demand within the IDE. It can run under nearly all versions of DOS and Windows, or through DOSBox/DOSEMU, on Linux and FreeBSD. For its time, QBasic provided a state-of-the-art IDE, including a debugger with features such as on-the-fly expression evaluation and code modification. Like QuickBASIC, but unlike earlier versions of Microsoft BASIC, QBasic is a structured programming language, supporting constructs such as subroutines and while loops. Line numbers, a concept often associated with BASIC, are supported for compatibility, but are not considered good form, having been replaced by descriptive line labels.
High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles The Salmon of Wisdom or Salmon of Knowledge (bradn feasa) is a creature figuring in the Fenian Cycle of Irish mythology. The Salmon figures prominently in The Boyhood Deeds of Fionn, which recounts the early adventures of Fionn mac Cumhaill. According to the story, it was an ordinary salmon that ate the nine hazel nuts that fell into the Well of Wisdom (aka Tobar Segais) from nine hazel trees that surrounded the well. In doing so, the salmon gained all the knowledge in the world. Moreover, the first person to eat of its flesh would, in turn, gain this knowledge. The poet Finn Eces spent seven years fishing for the salmon. When he finally caught it, he instructed his apprentice, Fionn, to prepare it for him. Fionn burned his thumb when spattered with a drop of the hot fat from the cooking salmon and immediately sucked on it to ease the pain. Unbeknownst to Fionn, all the wisdom had been concentrated into that one drop, and Fionn had just imbibed it all.
