 Fight-or-flight response - Encyclopedia.WorldSearch   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
The flight or fight response, also called the "acute stress response", was first described by Walter Cannon in the 1920s as a theory that animals react to threats with a general discharge of the sympathetic nervous system.
The response was later recognized as the first stage of a general adaptation syndrome that regulates stress responses among vertebrates and other organisms.
The onset of a stress response is associated with specific physiological actions in the sympathetic nervous system, primarily caused by release of epinephrine and norepinephrine from the medulla of the adrenal glands.

 Humanitarian response to the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The humanitarian response to the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake was prompted by one of the worst natural disasters of modern times.
Key areas for improvement in the current agency responses were identified as: • their engagement with local actors; • transparency, communication with, and accountability to the affected populations; • transparency towards their donors.
The Israeli humanitarian organisation Latet sent a jumbo jet carrying 18 tonnes of supplies to Colombo, however, and a rescue-and-recovery team from the Jewish ultra-Orthodox organisation Zaka arrived in Colombo with equipment used for identifying bodies, as well as body bags BBC News December 28, 2004.

 HTTP/1.1: Response
The first line of a Response message is the Status-Line, consisting of the protocol version followed by a numeric status code and its associated textual phrase, with each element separated by SP characters.
However, applications MUST understand the class of any status code, as indicated by the first digit, and treat any unrecognized response as being equivalent to the x00 status code of that class, with the exception that an unrecognized response MUST NOT be cached.
However, new or experimental header fields MAY be given the semantics of response- header fields if all parties in the communication recognize them to be response-header fields.

 MedlinePlus Medical Encyclopedia: Immune response
The immune response is how your body recognizes and defends itself against bacteria, viruses, and substances that appear foreign and harmful to the body.
Some of these barriers are the skin, stomach acid, mucus (which traps bacteria and small particles), the cough reflex, and enzymes in tears and skin oils.
The inflammatory response (inflammation) occurs when tissues are injured by bacteria, trauma, toxins, heat, or any other cause.

Response to Earthquake and Tsunami in Southeast Asia
Direct Relief’s response efforts are fast, yet they always involve local partners and are coordinated with other international organizations and governmental authorities to ensure the most efficient use of resources.
While each disaster is unique, response efforts tend to occur in phases: search and rescue, immediate relief (for immediate medical, shelter, sanitation, and food), reconstruction and recovery, and long-term development.

 Analysis of an Electronic Voting System   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Throughout Diebold's response they seek to marginalize their dependence on cryptography (e.g., Diebold's responses to "allegation 1" and "allegation 8"), however the fact remains that although cryptography was used in their design, it was used incorrectly.
Moreover, in their response to "allegation 43," they seemingly admit that the keys used to protect the votes are still static and fixed.
In their response to "allegation 44," Diebold states that "[t]here are stronger forms of compression than DES, but the authors' implication that the keys can be recovered `in a short time' is deliberately misleading." We assume that Diebold meant to claim that there are stronger encryption algorithms available, as DES is not a compression algorithm.

 Response Time Overview
Normally, response times should be as fast as possible, but it is also possible for the computer to react so fast that the user cannot keep up with the feedback.
In cases where the computer cannot provide fairly immediate response, continuous feedback should be provided to the user in form of a percent-done indicator [Myers 1985].
Therefore, the response time guidelines for web-based applications are the same as for all other applications.

One can appreciate Isaac's distress over the revelation of his inability to construct a justification for his support for state violence in one of the cases discussed, and more strikingly, of his culpability for the massive atrocities in the analogue.
The basis for these conclusions is elaborated in the central chapter of the book to which Isaac alludes, and in the sources cited there that have been readily available throughout these terrible and ongoing crimes for which we bear crucial responsibility from their earliest days.

 Response? What Response?
The remainder of Dembski's section is not a response to my critique at all, but is a long passage cut and pasted from one of his articles, with trivial changes.
One thing I was hoping to see in Dembski's response was a clarification regarding his two apparently different methods of determining specified complexity, the chance-elimination method and the uniform-probability method, as I have named them.
Dembski's only response to my argument is to point out that not all real fitness landscapes are smooth, citing as examples landscapes based on small changes to written language and computer source code.

 Understanding Speaker Frequency Response
A big improvement would be a frequency response number that also includes the amplitude tolerance, expressed as "XHz-YkHz +/- 3dB." This tells you that the amplitude of the speaker's response relative to frequency does not deviate more than 3 Decibels from the center line.
If I had to choose strictly by the response curves, I'd choose speaker D because its amplitude variations are smoother and gentler.
it is better to stick to the facts of speaker response and let the consumer decide for him or her self.

 Room acoustics
The bass response is sharply boosted for a narrow frequency band near resonance, and then is depressed between resonances.
This is apparently due to two factors: (1) the directionality of the microphone, which was pointing directly at the real speaker, lowers the echo responses, and (2) all of the calculated echoes are perfect impulses; the real-world reflected pulses are smeared out in time compared to the direct path pulse, reducing the relative peak value.
The response was calculated at a point 2/3 of a room length away from the woofers, centered in width, and 3-feet above the floor.

 Responding to Oil Spills, Oil Program, US EPA
Although many spills are contained and cleaned up by the party responsible for the spill, some spills require assistance from local and state agencies, and occasionally, the federal government.

EPA usually learns about a spill from the responsible party, who is required by law to report the spill to the federal government, or from state and local responders.

 The Influence of African Rhythms
The music of Africa informed the music of Charleston in a very central way; it is impossible to quantify the many influences, but it is possible to highlight three of the most recognizable and important contributions.
Talk of syncopation, call and response, and timbre can get complex and technical, but on a basic level, they are the soul of this new African American music: they give the music "looseness" and excitement, relaxation and drive.
Call and response is also crucial because it involves the audience; it transcends the seperation of audience and performers so common in the west.
