456: Cautionary

[edit] Explanation Xorg (officially X.Org) is an implementation of the X Window System, a program responsible for the graphical display used on Linux. If it has configuration problems, which was quite common with some video card drivers back in 2008 (especially those for ATI Radeon cards), it is often difficult and/or painful to fix (see 963: X11). Man pages are manual pages for Unix-based operating systems and software, usually accessible online but also bundled with the software itself, that explain in simple unambiguous language what certain things are, how they work, and providing clear illustrations of their use.

Some advanced users of Linux choose to compile their kernel from source; Gentoo requires this, and is customarily compiled locally. Pontiac Firebird. Entwicklung[Bearbeiten] Am 27.

Pontiac Firebird

Januar 1967, fünf Monate nach dem Debüt des Schwestermodells Chevrolet Camaro, wurde der erste Firebird als Coupé und Convertible (Cabriolet) vorgestellt. Der Verkauf begann am 23. Februar 1967 – der Einstiegspreis lag bei 2666 Dollar für die Sechszylinderversion mit Dreigangschaltung. Weitere Motorvarianten waren unter anderem ein V8 mit 184 kW (250 PS) oder 210 kW (285 PS). Unter John DeLorean, Manager der Pontiac Motor Division General und späterer Gründer des Sportwagenherstellers DMC, fand das Chassis des Camaro und der Name des turbinengetriebenen Showautos Firebird XP-21 aus den 1950er-Jahren Verwendung, um den ersten Firebird zu entwickeln. Der Pontiac Firebird wurde mit unterschiedlichen Ausstattungen, Motorisierungen und Extras in den Varianten Esprit, Formula oder Trans Am angeboten, wobei der Trans Am das leistungsstärkste Modell darstellte.

Zu seiner Glanzzeit wurden pro Jahr über 155.000 Firebirds hergestellt. Die Baureihen[Bearbeiten] 3. 4. Ford Mustang. The Mustang created the "pony car" class of American automobiles—sports-car like coupes with long hoods and short rear decks[5]—and gave rise to competitors such as the Chevrolet Camaro,[6] Pontiac Firebird, AMC Javelin,[7] Chrysler's revamped Plymouth Barracuda and the first generation Dodge Challenger.[8] The Mustang is also credited for inspiring the designs of coupés such as the Toyota Celica and Ford Capri, which were imported to the United States.

Ford Mustang

Background[edit] The Ford Mustang was brought out five months before the normal start of the 1965 production year. The earliest versions are often referred to as 1964½ models, but VIN coded by Ford and titled as 1965 models, though minor design updates for fall 1965 contribute to tracking 1964½ production data separately from 1965 data (see data below).[9] with production beginning in Dearborn, Michigan on March 9, 1964;[10] the new car was introduced to the public on April 17, 1964[11] at the New York World's Fair.[12] Ford Australia.

Factory-HD59-69-Pan-Shovel-Service-Manual. Iris recognition. Retinal scanning is a different, ocular-based biometric technology that uses the unique patterns on a person's retina blood vessels and is often confused with iris recognition.

Iris recognition

Iris recognition uses video camera technology with subtle near infrared illumination to acquire images of the detail-rich, intricate structures of the iris which are visible externally. Digital templates encoded from these patterns by mathematical and statistical algorithms allow the identification of an individual or someone pretending to be that individual.[1] Databases of enrolled templates are searched by matcher engines at speeds measured in the millions of templates per second per (single-core) CPU, and with remarkably low false match rates.

Several hundred millions of persons in several countries around the world have been enrolled in iris recognition systems for convenience purposes such as passport-free automated border-crossings, and some national ID programs.

Hemoglobin (/ˈhiːmɵˌɡloʊbɨn/); also spelled haemoglobin and abbreviated Hb or Hgb, is the iron-containing oxygen-transport metalloprotein in the red blood cells of all vertebrates[1] (with the exception of the fish family Channichthyidae[2]) as well as the tissues of some invertebrates.


Hemoglobin in the blood carries oxygen from the respiratory organs (lungs or gills) to the rest of the body (i.e. the tissues). There it releases the oxygen to permit aerobic respiration to provide energy to power the functions of the organism in the process called metabolism. Heme. Ball and Stick model of Heme B Function[edit] Hemoproteins have diverse biological functions including the transportation of diatomic gases, chemical catalysis, diatomic gas detection, and electron transfer.


The heme ion serves as a source or sink of electrons during electron transfer or redox chemistry. In peroxidase reactions, the porphyrin molecule also serves as an electron source. In the transportation or detection of diatomic gases, the gas binds to the heme ion. Download time calculator.
