"Tsunami Glossary (International Tsunami Information Center)

A tsunami, also known as a seismic sea wave, is a series of water waves caused by the displacement of a large volume of a body of water, generally an ocean or a large lake. Earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and other underwater explosions (including detonations of underwater nuclear devices), landslides, glacier calvings, meteorite impacts and other disturbances above or below water all have the potential to generate a tsunami.

Tsunami waves do not resemble normal sea waves, because their wavelength is far longer. Rather than appearing as a breaking wave, a tsunami may instead initially resemble a rapidly rising tide, and for this reason they are often referred to as tidal waves. Tsunamis generally consist of a series of waves with periods ranging from minutes to hours, arriving in a so-called "wave train".[4] Wave heights of tens of ..."

"In order to provide a consistent baseline and a common "language reference" for the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) and its various stakeholders, the IPC has created the following glossary.

This document identifies correct terms and acronyms to be used within a Paralympic context and to provide their respective translations into French and Spanish.
The glossary is divided into six sections:

  • IPC vision and values
  • IPC member organisations
  • IPC bodies and positions
  • Other bodies and organisations
  • Sports
  • General terms
  • Country names and codes"

(EN) (PDF) - World Rowing Championships Media Guide | worldrowing.com

"The origin of rowing
The boat was one of mankind’s most significant mode of transport for centuries. The first representation of a rowing boat was discovered in Finland and dates back to 5,800 BC. The earliest regatta was held on 16 September 1274 in Venice, Italy, where regattas developed as challenges between gondoliers and boatmen in a variety of rowing boats. Rowing has evolved all over the world wherever people and water mix. However, the origin of the sport of rowing as we know it today comes from England, where the worldrenowned Oxford versus Cambridge University Boat Race was first held in 1829 on the River Thames.

Boat Classes
Rowing events are either sculling or sweep events. In sculling (denoted by an ‘x’), each rower has two oars whereas in sweep rowing (denoted by a ‘-‘ for boats without coxswains and ‘+’ for coxed boats) each person in the boat has one oar.

Rowing at the World Rowing Championships
The first World Rowing Championships were staged in Lucerne, Switzerland, in 1962. Initially held every four years, the championships soon ..."

(IT) (PDF) - Il rischio biologico nel settore della bonifica dei siti contaminati | inail.it

"Il problema dell’inquinamento dei suoli e delle falde acquifere da parte dei contaminanti organici di svariata natura chimica (idrocarburi, sostanze organo-alogenate, fitofarmaci, derivati dell'anilina, naftoli, pesticidi, etc.) è particolarmente rilevante in numerose zone dell'Italia e molto spesso è aggravato dalla elevata persistenza e tossicità di questi composti con i connessi rischi sanitari. Il nuovo contesto legislativo in materia di bonifica di siti contaminati ha avuto importanti ricadute nel settore tecnologico: da interventi drastici, spesso molto costosi, che di fatto non fanno che trasferire gli inquinanti da una matrice ad un’altra, la domanda di bonifica si sta spostando verso tecnologie, come quelle biologiche, più naturali e meno costose, mirate al ripristino effettivo dei siti con maggiori garanzie di eco-compatibilità.
Questa attività industriale ha necessariamente risvolti anche in termini di sicurezza occupazionale e si ritiene fondamentale che l’INAIL dia indirizzi in materia di prevenzione, valutazione e gestione dei rischi lavorativi. La monografia tratta il rischio biologico occupazionale nelle attività di bonifica che è un rischio spesso sottovalutato o per nulla considerato e fornisce indicazioni in materia di valutazione e controllo dei rischi biologici durante le diverse fasi operative."

"Tools Picture Dictionary / Visual Tools Guide by Macros_the_Black

About a year ago (9th Apr 2008), in the "please stop using the Dremel as a saw... " thread, Oclocker had the idea of creating a "pictorial guide" of tools . I thought this was a great idea but was too lazy at the time to make one. I do realize this is going to take a lot of time, but I'd really like to see such a guide / dictionary here on the forums, so here goes:

  • Clamps and Vises
  • Measuring
  • Miscellaneous
  • Planers
  • Sanders
  • Saws
  • Threads
