Cornering Brake Control (CBC) is a further development and expansion of the anti-lock braking systems (ABS) for braking on curves.
CBC guarantees optimum distribution of brake power in corners, keeping the car on track even if the brakes are applied suddenly when cornering.
CBC counteracts these tendencies by modulating brake action at individual wheels in a precise way; for instance, it can cause brake pressure at the outside front wheel to build up more rapidly than at the other wheels.

The CBC is Canada's public broadcaster -- it is funded partially by the federal government (the rest of its revenue comes from advertising, although the radio services are ad-free) but operates at arm's length, with a board of directors appointed by the government.
CBC does an admirable job of biting the hands that feed it, far better than we can expect from toadying corporations who must, because they are businesses, put the bottom-line first and all else -- including quality journalism -- a distant second.
CBC could afford to take the gamble because 1) it fit with their mandate (for instance "contribute to shared national consciousness and identity") and 2) if couldn't get companies to buy ad-time they could still eat the loss of revenue and justify it to the board of directors.

 Complete Blood Count (CBC)
A CBC helps your health professional evaluate symptoms (such as weakness, fatigue, or bruising) and diagnose conditions (such as anemia, infection, and many other disorders).
For instance, the red blood cell (RBC) count, hemoglobin (Hgb), and hematocrit (HCT) are the most important values needed to help decide whether a person has anemia, but the red blood cell indices and the blood smear also help guide the diagnosis and suggest a possible cause for the anemia.
When inflammation in the body is present (such as from an infection or cancer), red blood cells may settle more quickly than normal.
