  ESA - Navigation - The present - EGNOS - Satellite road management being developed in Lisbon
Real time tests are conducted on the Vasco Da Gama Bridge above the Tagus, one of the longest bridges in Europe.
Stopping is no longer necessary: inside the vehicle the driver is informed that he is passing through the toll, and at the same time the control centre records the vehicle and will then be able to bill it.
The result is time saved and an end to the dangerous traffic queues that occur at tollbooths.

 ESA - Navigation - The present - EGNOS - The best view of the Tour is from space
Thanks to satellites, it will be possible to know at any given time where each rider is and how he is doing in the race, whether he is in the peloton or has broken away and is out in front.
This is useful information for Tour fans who want to know how their favourite rider is placed, but also for team directors who want constant updates on their star performers and their opponents, or who want to be able to analyse the race afterwards together with the riders.
For the moment, the tracking of riders by satellite is in the experimental phase and was demonstrated for the first time in the 21 July time trial between Bourg d’Oisans and Alpe d’Huez.

  'SNL' set says much about past and present - The Boston Globe
And the original Not Ready for Prime Time Players, including John Belushi, Gilda Rad-ner, and Chevy Chase, were brilliant, fierce, and legendary from day one, even when they were stoned out of their gourds.
Released in their entirety on disc for the first time, instead of broken up onto best-of collections, the 24 episodes unfold with an erratic, exciting, tedious, grainy glory.
In the context of the times, "SNL" was counter-cultural.

  Time [Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy]
Spacetime is four-dimensional and a continuum, and time is a distinguished, one-dimensional sub-space of this continuum.
Proper time along a worldline in 4-d spacetime is the time elapsed by an object having that worldline, as shown on an ideal clock having the same worldline.
Time exists, things change, but time doesn't flow objectively, although there may well be some objective feature of our brains that causes us to believe we are experiencing a flow of time; but in that case time flows only in a subjective sense of the term.

  Time, Eternity, and Predestination
The nature of time is such that what we imagined to occur in the future will suddenly occur in the present once that point is reached, at which time the present instantaneously becomes the past.
If time is a one-way flow that is untouchable and unalterable, there would be no reason to say that God exists in the past, present, and future all at the same time.
Some have believed that there is no time in eternity based off of Revelation 10:6b where an angel proclaimed "that there should be time no longer." In context, this is not referring to the end of the existence of time, but the end of the great tribulation.

 About Present Time Clocks
In our fast paced life today there is a felt need to at times slow down and appreciate things that are outside the venue of faster and easier - to appreciate something that is made entirely by hand.
At the time I was working with a friend making custom furniture and had access to plenty of quality scrap wood.
Present Time clocks are made custom "to order" and lead times can vary from 2 weeks to 2 months or more, depending on what you have selected, and what I am working on at the time.

 Aktionsart & the Present Tense
And time is not the primary significance of Greek tenses.
It is incorrect to think of the time element (present time) as fundamental to a present tense verb and to therefore conclude that linear action is just a trait that may or may not accrue to the verb.
The idiom is as old as the tense itself and is due to the failure in the development of separate tenses for punctiliar and linear action in the ind. of present time.

 The Unreality of Time
I believe, however, that this would be a mistake, and that the distinction of past, present and future is as essential to time as the distinction of earlier and later, while in a certain sense, as we shall see, it may be regarded as more fundamental than the distinction of earlier and later.
Since, therefore, what occurs in time never begins or ceases to be, or to be itself, and since, again, if there is to be change it must be change of what occurs in time (for the timeless never changes), I submit that only one alternative remains.
We may sum up the relations of the three series to time as follows: The A and B series are equally essential to time, which must be distinguished as past, present and future, and must likewise be distinguished as earlier and later.

 The Experience and Perception of Time (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy)
According to this, the time of an event is not simply read off from some aspect of the memory of it, but is inferred from information about relations between the event in question and other events whose date or time is known.
His definition of the specious present goes as follows: ‘the prototype of all conceived times is the specious present, the short duration of which we are immediately and incessantly sensible’ (James (1890)).
The experienced present is ‘specious’ in that, unlike the objective present, it is an interval and not a durationless instant.

 The Present Time : IMC-SA
And as this happens to all of the atoms in the universe, we are certainly justified in saying that the whole content of the universe is moving at a tremendously high speed.
It is therefore natural for man, whose body is made up of the “always-present” basic matter, to feel that he is “always present,” or that he is always in the present condition, or that he is always “at the present time” the whole of his life.
Because the contents of the universe keep changing, man, who feels that he is always “at the present time” or “at the present condition,” also undergoes various changes.

 The Time Traveler Convention - May 7, 2005
Time travelers from all eras could meet at a specific place at a specific time, and they could make as many repeat visits as they wanted.
In that case, bring a time capsule or whatever it may be to the party, and then bury it afterwards.
If the time travelers don't leave us their secrets, we won't be able to go back in time and see our convention in all its glory unless it is publicized in advance.

 Tense & Time
We normally choose the tense according to the time of the situation we are describing.
In one piece of writing we may describe a number of separate 'worlds' in time; for example, a letter may describe both the events of yesterday and the plans for tomorrow, and so different tenses will be used.
The vivid present conveys a sense of immediacy.

If you are a Structured Settlement recipient, a portion of the payments you are due to receive in the future is interest that has not been earned yet.
At the time you settled your case the insurance company invested the settlement amount in an annuity that is now paying a combination of principal and interest to you.
Otherwise the insurance company would have given you a lump sum for the full amount at the time your case was settled instead of structuring it over a long period of time.

 All In Good Time... - Pure Prairie League, Music Downloads - Online
Review: Country-rock veterans Pure Prairie League have endured enough lineup changes to rival a Major League Baseball team, but their laid-back blend of Nashville twang and Midwest earnestness eschews the genre's predilection for slick and soulless pop aimed at securing placement in a pickup truck commercial.
All in Good Time proves that the heart of "Music City" can still pump blood and not just money.
