  Era
A calendar era span of many years which are numbered beginning at a specific epoch, which often marks the origin of a state or cosmology, the birth of a leader, or another significant historical or mythological event; it can be called after either accordingly.
The word era also denotes the units used under a different, more arbitrary system where time is not represented as an endless continuum with a single reference year, but each unit starts counting from one again, as if time starts again.
In common speech and various contexts, the term era is also used, by extension, for any (as a rule relatively long) period in history with a name, often relating to common characteristic(s), even if this is not the normal way to organize time.

 Overview
She and the NWP considered the ERA to be the next necessary step after the 19th Amendment (Woman Suffrage) in guaranteeing "equal justice under law" to all citizens.
The ERA was introduced into every session of Congress between 1923 and 1972, when it was passed and sent to the states for ratification.
The seven-year time limit in the ERA's proposing clause was extended by Congress to June 30, 1982, but at the deadline, the ERA had been ratified by 35 states, leaving it three states short of the 38 required for ratification.

 [No title]
Although the Era concept had its weaknesses and the school is popularly seen as some kind of glorious failure, I am struck by the volume of positive sentiment from former students, many of whom have become highly successful even by prevailing social standards that Era sought to some extent to question.
Given that the verdict of society seems to have been that Era style schools are not a good idea, it's interesting that a substantial percentage of people who have actually attended such a school do not agree, especially given the dominant economic paradigm in 1996 when the survey was taken.
Not everyone concerned with Era felt that academic results make good criteria by which to judge a school's success, but heightened personal development was something that I think everyone involved in Era was aiming for.

The ERA was introduced to Congress every year from 1923 to 1972, when it was finally passed as the proposed 27th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
Opponents of the ERA claimed that the amendment would deny a woman’s right to be supported by her husband, send women into combat and increase abortion and gay and lesbian rights.
Although the ERA continues to be introduced to each session of Congress, passage of the amendment has yet to regain the momentum it did during the 1970s.

 Homerunweb -- Earned Run Average
As the basic statistical measure of a pitcher, ERA determines the average number of earned runs scored against a pitcher every nine innings; an earned run is a run that's the pitcher's fault, while an unearned run, which is usually the result of a fielding error, is not.
To be eligible for the yearly ERA championship, a pitcher must have thrown at least one inning for every game his team played, usually 162.
In the lively ball era, from 1920 through World War II, an ERA below 2.00 was a rare and phenomenal event.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Land-Tenure in the Christian Era
For the birth of Christ was, roughly, contemporaneous with the expansion of the art of writing over the tribal civilizations of Northern and Western Europe, and roughly contemporaneous also with that organization of all the known world, and especially of the ancient Oriental states and cities under the united and simple scheme of Roman rule.
The civilization which Rome had superseded in Gaul and was in process of superseding in Britain, the civilization of which she took note, though she did not supersede it, in the Germanies, and which her religion was later to develop in Ireland, was not municipal, but tribal.
In that scheme we discover at the opening of the Christian Era a certain attitude towards the tenure of land neither complicated nor difficult to define.

 the Equal Rights Amendment
It being widely assumed that the effect of the ERA would be to compel application of a strict scrutiny test to sex classifications, several Court members suggested the appropriateness of waiting for the constitutional amendment process to work its course.
Ultimately, the ERA fell three states short of ratification, largely over such concerns as mixed sex bathrooms and women being put in combat positions.
The Court finally settled on an intermediate scrutiny (important state interest and substantially related means) approach in Craig v Boren, invalidating a law that banned the sale of 3.2% beer to 18 to 20-year-old males, while allowing purchase by females of the same age.
