 Cool Science Fiction Stuff: The Sci-Fi Channel Encyclopedia
The Sci-Fi Channel Encyclopedia of TV Science Fiction is therefore a seemingly natural outgrowth of the station's commitment to televised SF.
One of the criticisms frequently leveled at The Sci-Fi Channel is that, rather than promote new shows and ideas, the station generally just replays old TV series and movies.
While that assessment may not be entirely correct, when it comes to The Sci-Fi Channel Encyclopedia of TV Science Fiction the publishers, and by association the channel itself, can appropriately be accused of simply recycling old and occasionally incorrect material (and deleting valuable data).

 Potassium channel - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Potassium channels are found in most cells, and control the electrical excitability of the cell membrane.
The pore-forming subunits of potassium channels have a homo- or heterotetrameric arrangement.
Some potassium channels are voltage-gated ion channels that open or close in response to changes in the transmembrane voltage.

 Channel Tunnel - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Given its status as one of the 20th century's most significant feats of engineering, it is perhaps surprising that the Channel Tunnel has not become more of a cultural icon (although admittedly other "modern wonders of the world" such as the Golden Gate Bridge and Empire State Building are more photogenic).
The Channel Tunnel is 50 km (31 miles) long, of which 39 km (24 miles) are undersea.
The tunnel is operated by Eurotunnel (Eurotunnel plc in England, and Eurotunnel SA in France).

 Channel surfing - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Channel surfing is the practice of quickly scanning through different television channels or radio frequencies in order to find something interesting to watch or listen to.
It has also been noted that men tend to channel surf more than women, although that is not to say that women don't channel surf.
Viewers' propensity to channel surf was apparently a factor leading toward the current ATSC standard for terrestrial digital television in North America.

 English Channel - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The English Channel (French: La Manche (IPA: [mɑ̃ʃ]), "the sleeve") is the part of the Atlantic Ocean that separates the island of Great Britain from northern France and joins the North Sea to the Atlantic.
The channel is relatively shallow, with an average depth of about 120 m at its widest part, reducing to about 45 m between Dover and Calais, then remaining shallow where it lies over the remains of the former land bridge between East Anglia and the Low Countries.
The channel has been a key natural defence for Britain, allowing the nation to intervene but rarely be dangerously threatened in European conflicts, mostly notable in the fight aganist Napoleon I of France during the Napoleonic Wars and Adolf Hitler during the World War II.

 Channel 31 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Channel 31 is the frequency reserved for community television stations across Australia.
Because each station is entirely independent, and there is no hardware to transmit a video signal to other stations in realtime, there is no programming that is common to all the stations, and therefore Channel 31 cannot be described as a 'network'.
It is on the UHF band, unlike Australia's commercial television stations and the ABC, which are on VHF.

 Channel capacity - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The key result states that the capacity of the channel, as defined above, is given by the maximum of the mutual information between the input and output of the channel, where the maximization is with respect to the input distribution.
In other words, the channel capacity of a given channel is the maximum information transport rate (in bit/s) that can be achieved with zero error probability.
Theoretically, the channel capacity purely refers to the transport of actual information bits in a given transmitted bit stream, regardless of the possibly added redundancy by the channel encoder.

 Channel 1 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Although not officially removed, channel 6 (from 82 to 88 MHz) is not being assigned to digital stations either, and will at least temporarily remain as a guard band with the FM broadcast band (from 88 to 108 MHz).
In 1945, the FCC decided to reserve channel 1 for low-wattage community television stations, and moved existing channel 1 stations to higher frequencies.
Since that channel is in the middle instead of at either end, it remains on all TV sets and other tuners.

 Trio - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The most common forms of trio in classical music are the piano trio (piano, violin and cello) and the string trio (violin, viola and cello).
Trio (album) is a 1987 recording by Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris and Linda Ronstadt.
This usage gives rise to the "minuet and trio" (or the "scherzo and trio") which often appears as the third movement in a symphony, sonata or similar work.

 Television - Open Encyclopedia
Development of cable and satellite means of distribution in the 1970s pushed businessmen to target channels towards a certain audience, and enabled the rise of subscription-based television channels, such as HBO and Sky.
Television in its original and still most popular form involves sending images and sound over radio waves in the VHF and UHF bands, which are received by a receiver (a television set).
Paralleling television's growing primacy in family life and society, an increasingly vocal chorus of legislators, scientists and parents is raising objections to the uncritical acceptance of the medium.

 SPEED Channel - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
SPEED Channel, based in Charlotte, was launched on New Year's Day 1996, by Roger Werner, as SpeedVision.
This angered some network viewers, who fear that SPEED is becoming ever closer to becoming an all-NASCAR channel.
SPEED also runs a very short segment during its commercial breaks, titled, "My First Car", in which celebrities like Ron Howard, Pierce Brosnan, and George Lucas (who has a great love for Fiat) and SPEED Channel viewers talk about the first set of wheels they ever drove.

 Secure channel - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In cryptography, and particularly in analytic or academic discussions of it, a secure channel is a method or technique assumed to provide means by which data can be transferred from one place or user to another without risk of interception or tampering.
None are known to be unconditionally secure, which is precisely what the "secure channel" of cryptography discussions is assumed to be.
The analytic purpose is to presume something (the capability of such secure transfer) which does not bear directly on the instant discussion of, say, the cryptanalytic vulnerability of a new block cipher design or a new digital signature protocol proposal.

 Mozambique - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Mozambique is located in southeastern Africa, bordered on the east by the Mozambique Channel in the Indian Ocean.
Mozambique's decision to enforce UN sanctions against Rhodesia and deny that country access to the sea led Ian Smith's regime to undertake overt and covert actions to destabilize the country.
In Mozambique, the military decision to withdraw occurred within the context of a decade of armed anti-colonial struggle, initially led by American-educated Eduardo Mondlane, who was assassinated in 1969.
