  Cobra (snake) - MSN Encarta
Cobras are recognized by the hoods that they flare when angry or disturbed; the hoods are created by the elongate ribs that extend the loose skin of the neck behind the cobras' heads.
The hood of the common cobra is, proportionately, much larger than that of the king cobra and is usually yellow to brown, with a fl-and-white spectacle pattern on top and two fl and white spots on the lower surface.
The king cobra is classified as Ophiophagus hannah, the common cobra as Naja naja, the spitting cobra as Naja nigricollis, the ringhals as Hemachatus haemachatus, and the asp as Naja haje.

  Cobra Organization - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Cobra seemed to attract members on the promise of fast financial rewards and power for those willing to be ruthless enough - it also seems to have an ideological basis of creating a world of order and strength (its 'model community' of Springfield was one example of the Cobra ideal).
Cobra would eventually achieve a temporary legitimacy by the artificial creation of Cobra Island - which was recognized (to the dismay of GI Joe) as an independent nation by the international community.
The original Cobra soldier uniform was a basic navy blue uniform with fl (or blue) gloves and boots; a large Cobra insignia, of varying colors depending on rank, was emblazoned on the chest, and the soldier's identity was concealed by a fl cloth scarf worn over the mouth and nose.

 Health Insurance Portability: Consequences of Cobra
COBRA is a good example of how the federal government's idiosyncratic approach to health insurance reform creates new problems even as it attempts to solve others.
COBRA coverage ceases if the period of eligibility expires, if an individual ceases to pay the required premiums, or if the individual becomes eligible for group health insurance from another source, such as from a subsequent employer; that does not exclude preexisting conditions.
COBRA coverage for beneficiaries must also be identical to that provided to similarly situated active employees and their dependents.
www.iatrogenic.org /library/economics/Cobra.html   (5594 words)

Notwithstanding COBRA's appearance as a law designed to protect the interests of individuals, many commentators believe that COBRA's primary purpose was to shift to employer health plans the costs of health care for thousands of individuals who, before COBRA, would have received health care coverage only, if at all, through government-funded entitlement programs.
In reviewing their COBRA administrative systems and the COBRA provisions of their various written materials, employers should keep in mind that COBRA administration is more than just taking care of those people "on COBRA"; it is a total process of notifying, tracking, and documenting all facets of compliance with this highly complex law.
COBRA's costs should not be measured only in terms of the administrative costs incurred by employers because of COBRA's requirements (e.g., postage, salaries, general overhead, etc.).

 AH-1 Cobra
The Cobra traces its lineage from the UH-1 Huey and was originally developed for the US Army in the mid-sixties.
The primary missions of the Cobra are helicopter Close Air Support (CAS), escort of transport helicopters and ground convoys, armed reconnaissance, helicopter air-to-air attack, anti-shipping operations, and coordination and terminal control of fixed wing CAS, artillery, mortars, and naval gunfire.It is the only western attack helicopter with a proven air-to-air and anti-radar missile capability.
The decision to buy the Cobra, which was built primarily of Huey parts and thus a quick and relatively cheap development for Bell, created strong conflict within the Army between operators and material developers.
