  Does a Beardie have balance
Balance is based on the movement of the sheep and the dog’s reaction to the movement, so that the dog is placing himself properly in relation to the sheep and handler.
Balance is being in contact with the sheep, the handler gives direction to the dog, but the dog is the one balancing the sheep.
For a gathering dog (most beardies are gathering dogs), balance is reached when the dog is in a position to cause the sheep to be held or to move in a line to the handler, even if the handler is over 100 yards away.

 Bryan Belanger's Online Guide to Pitching Mechanics- Step 4: The Balance Point   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-19)
At balance, his foot on his lift leg should be pointed toward the ground, as this builds tension and contributes to velocity (this, however, is not absolutely necessary).
At this point, there are no violent movements to upset the balance of the pitcher and thus he should be able to maintain his balance point without drifting or falling over.
The balance point is a critical checkpoint to an efficient and proper delivery, as a pitcher's failure to achieve balance can result in inaccuracy and a sharp loss of velocity.

 Internally wired counter-balanced bracket - Patent 3994464
In this type of lamp bracket, balancing at various degrees of extension was achieved by maintaining maintained proportionality between the extension of the forward arm forwardly of the balance point, and aft movement of the counter-balance.
The support point b is thus spaced vertically from the base swivel bushing 11, and as will be seen is likewise spaced from the members which provide for support and rotation relative to the other axes c, d.
It is inherent in this balanced bracket construction that a line connecting the support point b with the fulcrum f must be substantially parallel to the line from the hinge joint 17 to the center of gravity of the masses forward of the support point b, that is, substantially parallel to the supplementary arm 16.

 Alembic Club: Balance and the point
I know there are people out there with Balanced Point basses and the excellent folk at Alembic probably have something to say on the matter too.
Our original Standard Point and Omega body shapes were designed as 4-string medium scale basses, and for the time (early 70s) were not considered neck heavy balancing at 2:30 on a clock face.
The balance is primarily dictated by where the upper strap holder is. On the Balance Point, it's up much higher than on the Standard Point family of shapes.

 NJO Reviews: Balance Point   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-19)
Kathy Tyers achieves what James Luceno does not: she tightly focuses her plot around the Skywalker-Solo family group, handling their internal and interpersonal turmoil in a manner that shows this family's struggles to be representative of the macrocosmic struggles of the galaxy.
Balance Point 's success is largely the result of Tyers following a diverse enough cast of characters that each individual can fill in an important niche within the plot, and of her attention to detail in her writing.
She strikes a comfortable balance between Michael Stackpole 's internal-dialogue drenched mode of characterization and Timothy Zahn 's more subtle indication of personality through nuanced action and speech.

 Jef Raskin - How to Balance a Model Airplane
The initial balance point is a distance D measured back from the leading edge of the wing at the centerline of the aircraft.
Working out where the initial balance point is becomes a mere matter of plugging in the numbers that you get measuring the wing into the formulas.
After the interruption, I started to work on a different essay, and at some point I copied, into the same invisible copy buffer, a different formula for a different variable P that happened to be a function of variables with the same names as those used in the balance article.

 Learning Center: Balance Customization
It is not, as is sometimes believed, the point where half the weight is on each side of the balance point.
To change the weight and balance of this racquet to a desired alternative, use the bottom two sliders to add lead tape to specific locations on the racquet.
The most important lesson from this is that a little bit of weight added a greater distance from the current balance can have the same effect as a larger amount of weight added at a smaller distance from the current balance point.

The point at which the forces acting on a tubing string suspended in a live wellbore are equal.

 Balance Of Forces
Although the force of an object's weight acts downward on every particle of the object, it is usually considered to act as a single force through its balance point, or center of gravity.
If the object has unequal weight distribution, its balance point or its center of gravity may not be at its geometric center.
The total weight is 120 pounds and the total moment 6000 inches-pounds, the balance point is found by dividing the total moment by the total weight.

In general I'd say that a sword's balance and dynamic handling is very sensitive to the position of the balance point.
Generally the location of the point of balance is more sensitive when it is closer to the hand.
From my admittedly limited experience, the pivot point is generally closer to the center of percussion on pure cutting weapons (early medieval swords, cavalry sabers), and closer to the tip on thrusting weapons (modern foils and epees, but also some longswords).

This unknown elf has been seen at least two other times since then, and rumors say he is a servant of a young green dragon (known only as "Elfdrinker" and "Scourbreath" to those in the Chondalwood) being groomed for dracolichdom or perhaps vampirism by the Cult of the Dragon.
