 Buyer's Guide to Progressive Lenses at AllAboutVision.com
Progressive lenses, sometimes referred to as no-line bifocals, not only provide visual correction for distances that traditional bifocals can't, but they also hide the fact that you even need reading glasses.
Progressive lenses are the closest to how natural vision is (before the onset of presbyopia) that you can get in a pair of prescription eyeglasses.
Until recently, another disadvantage of the progressive corridor was that an eyeglass frame had to be a rather large size in order to accommodate all of the areas of focus in the lens.

 The Greatest Generation Yet | New Politics Institute
This massive generation rivals that of the Baby Boom in size, but could rival the social and political impact of the GI Generation, those known for fighting World War II, building the prosperous post-war American society, and leading the country from JFK through the next six presidents.
Today’s younger generation seem to have many of the characteristics of that older cohort that came of age in the progressive turbulence of the 1930s and later led the country through the liberal heyday of the post-war boom.
Every generation has a personality that is formed partly by its reaction to previous generations and by historical influences in its formative stages.

The optimal distance behind the partition to the far end of the wave channel was found to be equal to approximately a quarter wave length of the incident waves.
This led to the second stage of experimentation in which fine-grained sand beds were subjected to a range of essentially progressive waves, with viscous scaling introduced.

 SoundStage! Network Home Theater & Sound -- Video Noise
It is called "progressive scan" because the display of the image "progresses" across and down the screen uninterrupted.
Similarly, panning the progressive camera will also blur the images if a full 1/60 of a second is required to capture each image.
However, to make use of these flags for the new generation of progressive-scan displays, new DVD chip sets will need to be developed since the existing MPEG video chip set does the interlacing internally, making it impossible to access the digital frame data on the DVD directly.

As Totten sees it, "It's the first step in a long-range project to fill the pipeline with the next generation of progressive elected leaders."

And progressives have made great strides in supporting young progressive leadership development at a national scale over the last few years through the creation of new, progressive leadership development organizations with a nationwide and multi-issue focus, including Young People For, the League of Young Voters and the Center for Progressive Leadership.
Unlike their conservative counterparts, youth-focused progressive organizations are often funded with a "buying," not "building," mentality, meaning that donors want their contribution to have immediate payoffs, such as election-year voter registration, but are not focusing on investing in the strategic, long-term sustainability of those organizations.
Progressives should make a commitment to youth leadership development throughout our nonprofit organizations -- not just youth-led organizations -- that is on the same scale as that of the right wing.

Yes, conservatives and others—including the liberal Brokaw—have used the celebration of the World War II veterans to belittle or attack the 1960s generation for its opposition to the war in Southeast Asia.
And, yes, the Greatest Generation was originally marked by isolationist sentiments and, all too often, by racism and a host of others sins.
The powers that be have ever since been energetically endeavoring to obscure and effectively bury the truly progressive memories and legacies of the Greatest Generation along with those who constituted it.
