  Circuit - LoveToKnow 1911
The term circuit courts applies distinctively in America to a certain class of inferior federal courts of the United States, exercising jurisdiction, concurrently with the state courts, in certain matters where the United States is a party to the litigation, or in cases of crime against the United States.
A circuit court of appeals is made up of three judges of the circuit court, the judges of the district courts of the circuit, and the judge of the Supreme Court allotted to the circuit.
On the Northern circuit, courts are held at Inverness, Perth, Dundee and Aberdeen; on the Western, at Glasgow, Stirling and Inveraray; and on the Southern, at Dumfries, Jedburgh and Ayr.

  Integrated circuit - Encyclopedia.WorldSearch   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The integrated circuit was made possible by mid-20th-century technology advancements in semiconductor device fabrication and experimental discoveries that showed that semiconductor devices could perform the functions performed by vacuum tubes at the time.
The integrated circuit was first conceived by a radar scientist, Geoffrey W.A. Dummer (born 1909), working for the Royal Radar Establishment of the British Ministry of Defence, and published in Washington DC on May 7, 1952.
The first integrated circuits were manufactured independently by two scientists: Jack Kilby of Texas Instruments filed a patent for a "Solid Circuit" made of germanium on February 6, 1959, and Robert Noyce of Fairchild Semiconductor was awarded a patent for a more complex "unitary circuit" made of Silicon on April 25, 1961.

 CIRCUIT
Circuit (a) requires a "cooked" zener: connect it first to a constant current generator, then increase the current until the voltage across the zener starts to decrease.
Circuit (b) will oscillate at a very low frequency, normally 2-5Hz, provided the voltage is increased very slowly, loading is critical and you may find that a slightly different lamp will work better.
he only drawback with this circuit is that it might latch in the conducting state if the load is too heavy or if there is a short at the output, this requires some kind of protection, on the input line, in the form of a fuse or similar.

 electric circuit on Encyclopedia.com
A simple circuit might consist of an electric cell (the power source), two conducting wires (one end of each being attached to each terminal of the cell), and a small lamp (the load) to which the free ends of the wires leading from the cell are attached.
When two circuit elements are connected in series, their effective resistance (impedance if the circuit is being fed alternating current) is equal to the sum of the separate resistances; the current is the same in each component throughout the circuit.
When circuit elements are connected in parallel, the total resistance is less than that of the element having the least resistance, and the total current is equal to the sum of the currents in the individual branches.

An integrated circuit (IC) is a thin chip consisting of thousands or millions of interconnected semiconductor devices, mainly transistors, as well as passive components like resistors.
By the year 2000 the largest integrated circuits contained hundreds of millions of transistors, and the trend shows no sign of slowing down.
The first integrated circuits were manufactured independently by two scientists: Jack Kilby of Texas Instruments filed a patent for a "Solid Circuit" on February 6, 1958, and Robert Noyce of Fairchild Semiconductor was awarded a patent for a more complex "unitary circuit" on April 25, 1961.

In this circuit, one, two or three neon indicator bulbs can be made to flash in sequence at rates determined by the R and C values.
In the single stage circuit, using one lamp, the capacitor charges through the resistor until the ionization potential of the neon is reached (about 70 volts) and then discharges quickly through the lamp until the voltage falls below what is needed to sustain the lamp which is approximately 45 volts.
This circuit is basically the same as the 10 channel LED sequencer with the addition of solid state relays to control the AC lamps.

 Circuit (Linktionary term)
Virtual circuits This type of circuit exists in a mesh network in which cells, frames, or packets are transmitted among nodes in a network.
Virtual circuits are common in WANs (wide area networks) and internal networks that use switches in the workgroup area and the backbone.
Circuits are also defined in higher layers of the protocol stack.

A virtual circuit, sometimes called a logical circuit, is a path between two or more points that seems like a fixed physical path, but actually is one path out of many possible physical paths that can be arranged.
A switched virtual circuit (SVC) is similar to a permanent virtual circuit, but allows users to dial in to the network of virtual circuits.

 Switchmode PSU Protection Circuit
The circuit is designed to provide protection to a DIY switching power supply for car amplifiers by shutting down under any or all of the three modes of protection (over voltage, under voltage and over temperature) with minimal components.
As shown, the circuit's output will rise slowly from zero to +12V when triggered, and from +12V to zero when the fault is cleared.
With this circuit, although it shows only one diode connected, you could parallel several more so that when any of the diodes get hot enough, the over temperature is triggered.

Moreover, because numerous federal laws allow regulatory cases to be appealed either to a local circuit court or to the D.C. Circuit, the court hears many challenges to decisions by the National Labor Relations Board, cases involving the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, and much else.
For another, court watchers note that in the aggregate, the D.C. Circuit's Democratic-appointed judges -- Harry Edwards, Merrick Garland, Judith Rogers and David Tatel -- simply aren't as liberal as the Republican-appointed ones -- Douglas Ginsburg, Karen Henderson, A. Raymond Randolph and David Sentelle -- are conservative.

The circuit can be expanded to greater lengths by cascading additional shift registers and connecting the 8th output (pin 13) to the data input (pin 1) of the succeeding stage.
If the circuit is operated with two or more LEDs on at the same time, resistors may be needed in series with each LED to avoid exceeding the maximum total output current for each IC of 25 mA.

Dirk Schaefer's independent film examining the circuit party life in southern Califronia has had a pretty bad critical reputation, but the DVD version of it with the director's cut on it certainly deserves a look.
The film does say what the drug laden circuit party syndrome does to its victims but it presents a picture that is not true for anyone.
He experiences everything about circuit life--the drugs, the sex, the emphasis on physical appearance and beauty and he falls from grace and has to deal with the results of his drug use and the changes in his lifestyle.
