Marcos, who won the 2013 Institute of Acoustics (IOA) Young Person's Award for Innovation in Acoustical Engineering for his array design, says: "Although line arrays have been studied for many years, the approach previously used to reduce the radiation to the rear of the array - and hence reduce reverberant levels for other listeners - has been to position a second set of loudspeakers at the back of the array to cancel the sound in that direction.
The wrongful arrest theory arises when police have wrongfully arrested a person with a disability because they misperceived the effects of that disability as, 'criminal activity.' An example of this type of discrimination is when the police mistake the symptoms of a person's stroke for operating under the influence and arrest the person. Congress specifically addressed this type of wrongful arrest discrimination when the House Judiciary Committee stated that people with disabilities such as epilepsy, "are frequently inappropriately arrested and jailed because police officers have not received proper training in the recognition of and aid of seizures."
