(EN) - How to Choose a Guitar Amplifier | Future Shop | Glossarissimo! | Scoop.it

"Electric guitars, basses, even some acoustics - they become impressive instruments when teamed with an amp. Before you buy, consider your plan for using the amp. Some are more portable than others, some come with more bells and whistles (or knobs and controls), and others just straight up make it loud."

"Surely you do have outfits for different occasions like festive days and free time, but also winter and summer. Similar to the selection criteria of clothes is the selection of carpets. The more you know your requirments, like where do you want to put the carpet, how much will it be used, is it more functional or more decorative, the more you will be able to choose the right carpet with the right criterias. Since not every material is adapted to every typ of usage, there are carpets that are not adapted to humidity or that are very sensitive so that they can´t be used for nurseries."

(EN) (ES) - Social Security Glossary / Terminología del Seguro Social | socialsecurity.gov | Glossarissimo! | Scoop.it

"This English-Spanish Wordbank of Social Security Terminology contains everyday words and expressions as well as technical Social Security terminology. It is intended to promote uniformity in language usage and avoid misinterpretation of Spanish language materials issued by the Social Security Administration. It is designed to be used by Social Security personnel who meet and interview the Spanish speaking public, and who prepare correspondence and other Spanish language documents as well as public information materials. The Wordbank was initially composed by a group of Social Security employees in our Central Office and has been updated though the years with the cooperation and review of many Social Security Field office employees from all regions. Also, each regional office was given opportunities to review the Wordbank and submit ideas and suggestions. The group members were chosen to represent various Hispanic origins and backgrounds.

----------------------------------------------------

Este banco de palabras (español-inglés) de terminología del Seguro Social contiene palabras y expresiones comunes así como terminología técnica del Seguro Social. Su propósito es el de promover uniformidad en el uso del lenguaje y evitar falsas interpretaciones en el uso de los materiales publicados por el Seguro Social en el idioma español. Se diseñó específicamente para el personal del Seguro Social que trata directamente con el público hispano hablante y que prepara correspondencia y otros documentos en español así como materiales de información pública. El banco de palabras fue compuesto inicialmente por un grupo de empleados del Seguro Social en la oficina central de Baltimore, MD (Estados Unidos) y se actualiza a través de los años con la cooperación y revisión de muchos empleados de habla hispana de todas las regiones del Seguro Social. Las oficinas regionales del Seguro Social tuvieron la oportunidad de revisar el banco de palabras y presentar sus ideas y sugerencias. Los miembros del grupo representaron diferentes países de origen y regiones geográficas hispanas."

(EN) (PDF) - Historical Glossary of Terms for Education Development | Richard & Vithanya Noonan | Glossarissimo! | Scoop.it

"This Glossary is intended as an aid for reading and writing English-language documents about education development in Laos. It lists more than 2000 abbreviations, terms, expressions, and definitions in official or common usage found in literature specifically concerning development of education and training in Lao PDR.

Where usage is primarily associated with one organization, that fact is noted. No organization has a monopoly on words, however, and terms originating in one organizational context can migrate to others, sometimes with slightly modified form or meaning. Wherever possible, such variations are noted. Terms originating in individual projects are entered into the Glossary only if they gain significant usage outside the immediate project context."

"As anybody new to marijuana knows, Marijuana smokers have their own secret language.

This glossary was made, because it sucks not knowing what your peers are talking about. By the end of this guide you will undoubtedly know: a topical is not just something you need after a trip to Tijuana and kind bud is not Marijuana that holds the door open for you. Without further ado, here is Top Dank’s Complete Cannabis Glossary.<"

"Prepared for publication by S. E. BRASLAVSKY
The second edition of the Glossary of Terms Used in Photochemistry [Pure Appl. Chem. 68, 2223–2286 (1996) has been both corrected and updated. Terms have been added related to molecular anisotropy, the use of polarized radiation, nonlinear optical phenomena, and the emerging field of computation of excited species. Some changes have been introduced in this “Glossary” regarding the terms related to radiation energy to make this collection fully compatible with internationally agreed-upon terms. Many links are included to various Web pages listing quantities relevant to the work of photochemists and scientists using photochemical tools."

"

التنمية البشرية هي توسيع خيارات الناس عبر تنمية قدراتهم. ولا تتحوّل هذه الرؤية إلى فعل بدون المشاركة التي يتدرّج الناس في مستوياتها، وهم يصلون إليها ولا يبدأون منها، بل يستحسن البدء .ببناء القدرة على المشاركة عند الناس، وهنا يكمن الاستثمار الأولي الذي يفضي إلى تملّك الناس لمشروعاتهم التنموية، مما يضمن نجاحها.

هذا المشروع الذي نضعه بتصرف شركائنا انبثق عن تلك الرؤية باعتباره أداة ضرورية تساهم في بناء القدرة على المشاركة، وتساعد على تغذية النقاش حول قضايا التنمية. إذ أنّ النقاش القائم في أوساط العاملين في التنمية لا زال يعاني من القصور في مجال تدقيق المفاهيم وقدرتها على الإحاتطة بحركيّة الأوضاع المجتمعية. ولا زال هذا النقاش محصوراً في أوساط النخب الأكاديمية أو السياسية أو الاجتماعية. ومن الملاحظ أن هناك مجالين أساسيين يضطرب فيهما النقاش التنموي. المجال الأول هو الافتراق المتفاقم بين نظريات النخبة ومخططاتها في جانب، واستجابة القواعد الشعبية والتطبيقات الميدانية لتلك الخطط في الجانب الآخر. والمجال الثاني هو المسافة الشاسعة بين مصالح الرأسمال العالمي والتوصيات الدولية من جهة، والأولويات والسياسات الوطنية من جهة أخرى."

(IT) (PDF) - Regolamento di esecuzione accertamenti e ispezioni sugli impianti termici degli edifici | enea.it | Glossarissimo! | Scoop.it

"L'ENEA, da anni impegnata nell'attività di supporto e consulenza alle Regioni e alle Autorità competenti nell'attuazione della legislazione su esercizio, manutenzione e controllo degli impianti termici degli edifici, di concerto con il Ministero dello sviluppo economico (MiSE) e con la collaborazione del Comitato termotecnico italiano (CTI), ha predisposto le "Linee guida per la definizione del Regolamento per l'esecuzione degli accertamenti e delle ispezioni sugli impianti termici degli edifici ai sensi del decreto legislativo 192/05 e ss.mm.ii. e del d.p.r. n. 74/2013" che vuole costituire un riferimento per le autorità competenti circa il delicato compito loro affidato.

Il contenuto del documento affronta gli aspetti procedurali che si instaurano tra utenti e autorità competente, quali le cadenze delle trasmissioni dei rapporti di efficienza energetica, le cadenze delle ispezioni, le modalità comportamentali e gli obblighi dei responsabili degli impianti termici e degli ispettori.

Suggerisce, inoltre, alle Regioni una possibile struttura delle tariffe, sia per la trasmissione dei rapporti di controllo di efficienza energetica che per le ispezioni. Contiene anche possibili modelli per le comunicazioni tra l'utente e l'autorità competente circa la nomina/cessazione del terzo responsabile, la nomina/cessazione dell'amministratore del condominio, la disattivazione dell'impianto, l'avvenuto adeguamento alle prescrizioni e la sostituzione del generatore di calore, e infine un promemoria circa gli adempimenti spettanti al responsabile, al terzo responsabile, al manutentore e al conduttore dell'impianto."

(EN) - History of Marquetry (with Glossary) | Stuart King | Glossarissimo! | Scoop.it

"The earliest evidence that I am aware of for marquetry/inlay is a remarkable casket from the city or UR, in Mesopotamia dated c2600 BC. Much of the work is cut from ivory and set in bitumen and is a pictorial representation of a mixture of royal and daily life. Not until the European renaissance do we again encounter pictorial decoration using contrasting veneers in the form of intarsia. This inlay technique was originally centred in the Italian city of Sienna in the 11th century and much used to decorate church furniture and panels.Homer was the first, in 700 BC, to describe the ornamentation of furniture with prized materials. In book 23 of the Odyssey, Ulysses tells Penelope about ..."

"As a note about the logo above, where as well a "glossary" other terms -- dictionary, lexicon, and thesaurus -- are also mentioned: these terms are not included just for decoration. Instead, as this project becomes more complete, you will see greater concern toward a "conceptual approach" to terms such as "Shaper Cutter", "Router Bit", and "Jointer Knife", "Plane Iron", "Saw Tooth", "Moulding Cutterhead", all terms that -- at bottom -- designate tools possessing a "Cutting Edge", and so forth, but because they have different profiles on their edges, and are contained on different tools -- even though they have the same function -- they are identified by different labels.

Another example to illustrate the "conceptual approach" are the following terms that are parts of Joints: "Tenon", "Biscuit", "Spline", "Tongue". While each is different, at bottom, they perform the same function.

By showing these kinds of relationships among these terms, this glossary will also function as a thesaurus."

(TOOL) (MULTI) - Speech Repository 2.0 | europa.eu | Glossarissimo! | Scoop.it

"The Speech Repository is an e-learning tool developed by DG Interpretation to help improve the quality of conference interpreter training.

This vast collection of speeches, on varying subjects and with different styles, contains real-life speeches which have been collected from national institutions and international organisations. It also contains recordings of training material, i.e. speeches delivered by experienced EU interpreters and university trainers. These speeches are tailored specifically to the needs of student interpreters for practice in consecutive and simultaneous modes and are adapted to the different stages of their training path.

The Speech Repository covers all 24 official EU languages, the languages of the Candidate Countries, plus Russian, Arabic and Chinese.

The new version of this tool, Speech Repository 2.0, consists of:

  • Speech Repository: Full public access to a bank of streamed speeches, including recordings of excerpts of conferences or other public meetings, and training speeches made by interpreters from the European institutions.
  • My Speech Repository, for partner universities and organisations and EU-accredited interpreters. After log-in through the European Commission Authentication System (ECAS). access is granted to all speeches and additional functionalities linked to conference interpreter training such as downloading speeches. The Repository’s SCICrec tool allows students to record their own interpretation and to play it back. The system also lets you share recordings, e.g. with other students or with trainers for evaluation."
