  Race hazard - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A race hazard (or race condition) is a flaw in a system or process where the output exhibits unexpected critical dependence on the relative timing of events.
Race hazards occur in poorly-designed electronics systems, especially logic circuits, but they may also arise in computer software.
In this case, heading off race conditions by imposing a form of control over access to the shared resource—say, appointing one server to control who holds what privileges—would mean turning the distributed network into a centralized one (at least for that one part of the network operation).

A race is a distinct population of controversial due to their impact on social identity hence identity politics.
One of the key debates of the time was whether or not the human races (the number of which varied with each commentator) were seperate species or not, and whether or not the crossing of human races was detrimental to their offspring.
Their understanding of race was usually both essentialist and Darwinian models of Mendelian genetics, however, called into question the scientific validity of both characteristics, and required a radical reconsideration of race.

 Auto Assault, an Introduction to Hazard Mode
Mutants' hazard mode uses a melding of phaseform abilities and the Contamination to form a free-roving negative energy field known as "Wraithphase", which can damage any enemy within range and move in bursts of great speed.
A Mutant hazard kit is a "Locus", a strange artifact that focuses the Contamination in the atmosphere to replenish the structural integrity of Contamination-infused chassis frames, regenerating hit points.
Players can only use Hazard Mode once they have gained the ability to use hazard kits for their race, have attained at least level 8, and have destroyed a particular number of opponents — measured in the hazard mode gauge in the user interface.

Karnaugh maps are useful for detecting and eliminating race hazards.
In the above example, a potential race condition exists when C and D are both 0, A is a 1, and B changes from a 0 to a 1 (moving from the green state to the blue state).
For this case, the output is defined to remain unchanged at 1, but because this transition is not covered by a specific term in the equation, a potential for a glitch (a momentary transition of the output to 0) exists.

Instead of the Nascar-like competition lawn-mower racing resembles at other fairs, contestants at the local race will be judged on presentation and the appearance of their vehicle, rather than speed, said Tom Mitchell, a Nevada County Fair technician.
After promenading into the racing arena, Mitchell explained, the drivers and their entourage will race through an obstacle course consisting of a herd of cows, irrigation pipes, cow patties (droppings) and haystacks.
As the description of the race reveals, Mitchell said, this event's purpose is not for serious racing but to include "average guys with lawn mowers who mow their lawn no more than once a week."
