A base-40 number line representation of pitch notation is suggested which makes it possible to incorporate information on pitch in one number, where the difference between two pitch numbers correctly determines the notated interval name between the corresponding pitches.
Such a construction is defined by two numbers: the number of units in a fifth, and the number of units in the octave.

In his comprehensive article on "Number, Numbering, Numbers" in the Interpreter's Dictionary of the Bible, biblical scholar M. Pope surveys the numerous texts in which the number 40 (a multiple of 4, "a sacred number the world over" as well as in Scripture) occurs.
It is used as a round number to designate a fairly long period of time in terms of human existence or endurance." On the basis of Pope's article and usage he cites, it would seem that the number 40 would signify not change, but prolongation and extension of time.

To facilitate this broader access, it is expected that metadata from these repositories will be harvested by others to create search-and-access databases that may be organized along subject and/or geographic lines.
A recent study conducted by a team at the University of Rochester, River Campus Libraries, reveals a number of reasons why faculty may be reluctant to “surrender” their research content to an institutional repository.

 The number 40   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
The number "40" as you probably know is a fairly significant one in the Bible from the standpoint of its usage anyway.
From these examples I think it fair to say that "40" represents a sufficiency of time (and probably of quantity as well); that is, it is long enough or large enough to remove doubt; long enough and large enough to prove God's point (whatever that may be in context).
The best numerological work of which I am aware (one that deals with the subject from a strictly conservative point of view) is J.J. Davis Biblical Numerology (Grand Rapids 1968).

In the United States, the NIH (National Institutes of Health) (http://www.nih.gov/) has created an interagency group, is planning another meeting in 2005, and has started a number of bioinformatic centers that should help, while DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) has charged ahead with the Virtual Soldier Program (http://www.darpa.mil/dso/thrust/biosci/virtualsoldier.htm) and the BioSPICE program (https://community.biospice.org/).

The good news is that once you get the hang of a few technical issues common to any kind of audio recording, you’ll be on your way.
You’ll need to understand some of the basics of digital audio: sampling rates (higher is usually better), bit depths (greater depth, again represented by higher numbers, is usually better), compression formats (the major players are MP3, Windows Media Audio or WMA, and Apple’s Advanced Audio Coding or AAC), and compression bitrates (higher is usually better).
But the collapse of radio is only part of the story of the rise of podcasting.

On Bush's 3-0 pitch to Felipe Lopez, Soriano's jump was so good that catcher Mike Rivera didn't bother throwing to second as he became just the fourth man to hit 40 home runs and steal 40 bases in a season.

His jersey will be delivered to the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, N.Y. "The guys that can hit 40 home runs or more usually don't steal that many bases," Nationals manager Frank Robinson said.
