  ICLE - Character Education Programs
A guiding principle is a positive, general principle that becomes an important foundation for the conduct of behavior, both individually and in relationships with others.
Guiding principles are beliefs that most people would agree with because they are viewed as socially appropriate and inherently valuable, such as the idea to "be responsible." Guiding principles are qualities that are naturally viewed as leading to higher level functioning, creating positive relationships with others, and promoting a civil society.
Through the research efforts of the International Center, 12 guiding principles have been identified as key principles upon which to base a character education program.

  Guiding center - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In many cases of practical interest, the motion in a magnetic field of an electrically charged particle (such as an electron or ion in a plasma) can be treated as the superposition of a relatively fast circular motion around a point called the guiding center and a relatively slow drift of this point.
While it is closely related to guiding center drifts in its physics and mathematics, is nevertheless considered to be distinct from them.
Guiding center drifts may also result not only from external forces but also from non-uniformities in the magnetic field.

The idea is that you should use the resume feature if you've lost guiding for a brief period and would like to bring the guide star back to its original position in the center of the box.
Guiding is as simple as moving the boxes around a suitable star and pressing "Start." The star box will center itself on the star, and you'll be merrily on your way (I hope).
As guide frames come in, the guider will send guiding corrections to the telescope if necessary and plot the FWHM (arcsec), normalized flux (flux divided by exposure time), and the location of the star relative to the guiding center.

 Glossary
The aurora is generally caused by fast electrons from space, guided earthward by magnetic field lines, and its light comes from collisions between such electrons and the atoms of the upper atmosphere, typically 100 km (60 miles) above ground.
Guiding center--An ion and electron in a magnetic field, of suitably low energy, is constrained to circle ("gyrate") around a local magnetic field line, while the center of its circular motion slides up or down along the line and also slowly shifts from one guiding field line to its neighbor, following certain rules.
The center of that circle is known as the particle´s guiding center and the entire mode of mottion is called guiding center motion.

 The W.M. Keck Center for Interdisciplinary Bioscience Training
The primary mission of the GCC’s training arm, the W. Keck Center for Interdisciplinary Bioscience Training, is to foster the training of the next generation of scientists with interdisciplinary expertise in areas where the biological sciences intersect with the physical, chemical, computational, mathematical and engineering sciences.
The Keck Center nurtures its trainees and stimulates the intellectual curiosity of the faculty at large, many of whom also wish to engage with disciplines outside of their traditional field of training, through a number of learning opportunities, including didactic courses, sponsored symposia, workshops, weekly seminars and monthly journal clubs.
The Keck Center is program-centric, governed by the Keck Executive Committee and with a steering committee for each training grant established to focus on the unique aims and program components required to support these aims.

 Converting Magazine - Web guide lines up sheeter productivity   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Initially, the guide would be used primarily in three different modes: center-guiding without taking any edge trim, center-guiding when center slitting rolls into two equal sides, and edge-guiding with or without removing any trim.
However, precise guiding is essential to ensure that the four webs line up accurately, one on top of another, for presentation to the slitting, cross-web cutting and sheet stacking portions of the operation.
During guiding or web width monitoring, the SE-34 transmits a collimated light curtain, which is obtained by using a set of cross-cylindrical lens-based optics with a semiconductor laser diode.

Located within walking distance of the Kennicott Glacier, the Wrangell Mountains Center's activities are based in the small community of McCarthy, on private land, within the boundaries of the nation's largest National Park.
The Wrangell Mountains Center is headquartered in the "Old Hardware Store," a historic building which originally served as a general store for the boomtown of McCarthy during the copper mining period of the early-20th century.
What was once a store, family living quarters, and rooming house is now an active solar-powered educational center, with a library, seminar room, program office, equipment storage for rafting and mountaineering expeditions, workshop, office/studio space for visiting scholars and artists, a cooperatively-run kitchen, flower, vegetable gardens, and a small green house.

 Welcome to Watson Literacy Center
But the Watson Literacy Center is really a living entity made up of people who care about literacy, who care about young people, and who support teachers and others who want to help children discover the joys, and the power, that come with literacy.

Therefore, it is natural that a Literacy Center bearing her name is grounded upon the whole language world view.

 FPMT Dharma Centers - Frequently Asked Questions
Most of our centers are founded by a student with some connection with Lama Zopa Rinpoche, often by a student who meets Rinpoche on a teaching tour, or at the annual one-month course at Kopan Monastery in Nepal, or through connection with another one of our centers.
In addition to attending the meetings if possible and establishing contact with nearby centers, as mentioned above we require that new study groups have a one-two year “trial” period to ensure that they are comfortable operating under the auspices of FPMT, and that there is enough local support for their activities, and so on.
Each FPMT center and group is responsible for itself legally and financially - you would be responsible for creating a separate, appropriate legal entity, based on the guidelines which we provide.

 Kennedy Center: History of the Living Memorial
The National Cultural Center Act included four basic components: it authorized the Center's construction, spelled out an artistic mandate to present a wide variety of both classical and contemporary performances, specified an educational mission for the Center, and stated that the Center was to be an independent facility, self-sustaining and privately funded.
The Center renewed its commitment to the creation of new works, and became a national leader in arts education and community outreach as well as a friendlier and more accessible home for the arts in Washington.
Johnson’s vision of the Center as a performing arts center attractive to people of all levels of income and artistic taste led him to create the Performing Arts for Everyone initiative, increasing the visibility of the Center’s frequent low-priced and free events.
