  T-carrier - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The basic unit of the T-carrier system is the DS0, which has a transmission rate of 64 kbit/s, and is commonly used for one voice circuit.
Originally the T1 format carried 24 pulse-code modulated, time-division multiplexed speech signals each encoded in 64 kbit/s streams, leaving 8 kbit/s of framing information which facilitates the synchronization and demultiplexing at the receiver.
Technically a DS1 is the data carried on a T1 circuit, and likewise for a DS3 and a T3, but the terms are almost always used interchangeably.

 Aircraft carrier - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Carriers steam at speed, for example up to 35 knots (65 km/h), into the wind during take-off in order to increase the apparent wind speed, thereby reducing the speed of the aircraft relative to the ship.
Several airships and balloons were destroyed, but as the carrier had no method of recovering the aircraft safely, two of the pilots ditched their aircraft in the sea alongside the carrier while the others headed for neutral Denmark.
By the late 1930s, aircraft carriers around the world typically carried three types of aircraft: torpedo bombers, also used for conventional bombings and reconnaissance; dive bombers, also used for reconnaissance (in the U.S. Navy, this type of aircraft were known as "scout bombers"); and fighters for fleet defence and bomber escort duties.

 Willis Haviland Carrier Autobiography @ HotAndCold.com (Hot and Cold)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-03)
Willis Haviland Carrier (November 26, 1876 – October 9, 1950) was an engineer and inventor, and is known as the man who invented modern air conditioning.
He went on to work on other cooling and humidity-control inventions, and was eventually made the head of the Buffalo Forge subsidiary named Carrier Air Conditioning Company in his honor.
Carrier moved his company to Syracuse, New York in the 1930s, and the company became one of the largest employers in central New York.

 Richard Carrier
Carrier argues that when we examine the background of the time and place in which the gospels were written, we discover that "these were times replete with kooks and quacks of all varieties, from sincere lunatics to ingenious frauds, and there was no end to the fools and loons who would follow and praise them."
Miller rebuts Carrier's argument that the use of the term 'roll' (kuliw et al.) requires a truly 'round' stone (i.e., a cylindrical disc-shaped slab, of the post-70 ad era), and that moving a rectangular-shaped slab (or even a boulder) would not be referred to by this term.
Carrier offers his impressions of the Barker-Carrier vs. Corey-Rajabali team debate on the existence of God, assesses the technical merit of the debate, and sets the record straight with regard to some of the relevant facts.

 Cybertelecom :: Common Carriers
By common law, common carriers were 1) required to serve upon reasonable demand, any and all who sought out their services; 2) held to a high standard of care for the property entrusted to them; and 3) limited to incidental damages for breach of duty.
A common carrier need not be a "public utility" or a "regulated monopoly," and vice versa; for example, public buses operating as common carriers are usually neither utilities nor monopolies; conversely, public utilities in electricity provision are not usually common carriers.
A telecommunications carrier shall be treated as a common carrier under this chapter only to the extent that it is engaged in providing telecommunications services, except that the Commission shall determine whether the provision of fixed and mobile satellite service shall be treated as common carriage." 47 USC § 153(44) (1999).

 TIME 100: Willis Carrier
The major imponderable in the life of Willis Carrier is whether he was actually a genius, which depends, of course, on the definition.

Carrier was also an exceptionally nice man, according to all reports, modest and sometimes droll, and a farsighted manager — he devoutly believed in teamwork and mentoring decades before the management consultants discovered it.
