 TEMPORAL ARTERITIS
Temporal arteritis is an inflammatory disease that involves arteries branching from the large carotid artery.
Temporal arteritis is also known as giant cell arteritis or cranial arteritis because it can involve any artery in the cranium, although it commonly affects the temporal artery and the ophthalmic artery, leading to the symptoms mentioned below.
Temporal arteritis is suspected by the clinical history along with a blood test called the sedimentation rate.

 Temporal Parts
Indeed, the statue is a temporal part of the lump of clay, composed of some of the instantaneous temporal parts which compose the lump.
Typical temporal parts theorists argue that such indeterminacy results from a mismatch between human language and temporarily-coincident objects (of the sort discussed in section 4.1).
Temporal parts accounts of vague persistence are defended by Sider (2001, section 4.9) (Sider presents a distinctive argument which will be discussed in section 8) and Heller (2000).

 temporal lobe epilepsy, temporal lobectomy
Temporal lobectomy is most commonly done to remove scarring in the deep portion of the temporal lobe.
A standard anterolateral temporal lobectomy involves removing 4-5 cm of lateral cortex (superior, middle, and inferior temporal gyri) and the parahippocampal formation (parahippocampal gyrus and hippocampus).
The posterior aspect of the resection is measured from the anterior aspect of the middle compartment (the tip of the temporal lobe) and resection starts by coagulating and cutting the blood vessels and transparent membrane covering the portion of the temporal lobe to be removed.

The underside (ventral) part of the temporal cortex appears to be involved in high-level visual processing of complex stimuli such as faces (fusiform gyrus) and scenes (parahippocampal cortex).
The medial temporal lobe (near the saggital plane that divides left and right cerebral hemispheres) is thought to be involved in episodic/declarative memory.
Deep inside the medial temporal lobe, the hippocampus seems to be particularly important for memory function, and it also seems to play a part in controlling spatial behaviour.

 MedlinePlus Medical Encyclopedia: Temporal arteritis
Temporal arteritis is a disorder involving inflammation and damage to blood vessels, particularly the large or medium arteries that branch from the external carotid artery of the neck.
Giant cell, cranial, or temporal arteritis occurs when there is inflammation and necrosis (death of the tissues) of one or more arteries.
It most commonly occurs in the head, especially in the temporal arteries that branch from the carotid artery of the neck.

 Chronos: Temporal Phasing
Temporal phasing does not remove an object from the physical (four-dimensional) Universe; rather, it changes the relative time flow around the object.
Swift) has a fifth-dimensional temporal accelerator that can be carried on the body, with an effect radius of two meters and an acceleration ratio of thirty-to-one compared with the rest of the world.
Due to the lessened gravity and inertial mass, it is not advised that people remain in temporal acceleration fields for long periods of time, since their muscles and bones will start to atrophy as if they were in outer space or on the Moon.

 Webvision: Temporal Resolution
Temporal summation refers to the eyeĆ­s ability to sum the effects of individual quanta of light over time.
Temporal summation is also affected by other test variables such as background luminance and the size of the stimulus size.
In the temporal domain, at high light levels, the S-cone pathways has a temporal summation time of approximately 100ms, whereas the longer-wavelength cone pathway has a temporal integration of approximately 50msec (Krauskopf and Mollon, 1971).

 Temporal Arteritis
Temporal arteritis, also known as giant cell arteritis, is an inflammatory condition affecting the medium-sized blood vessels that supply the head, eyes, and optic nerves.
Patients with temporal arteritis usually notice visual symptoms in one eye at first, but as many as 50% may notice symptoms in the fellow eye within days if the condition is untreated.

 Temporal Intelligence
One of the most powerful aspects of the temporal approach to intelligence is that it is based on a single unifying concept: the relative arrival times of discrete signals.
Finally, a temporal system is ideally suited to the goal of emulating what is probably the most important attribute of biological intelligence: the ability to learn to anticipate or predict the evolution of various phenomena in one's environment.
The problem with characterizing intelligence as being anything other than temporal is that it overlooks the significance of one of the most important discoveries of neurobiology in the last century: all sensory phenomena are converted into discrete spikes prior to being processed by the brain.

 Temporal Lobe Epilepsy : Epilepsy.com
The two temporal lobes (one on each side of the brain at about the level of the ears) are the most common location for the origin of partial seizures, which start in one localized area, also called a seizure focus.
Temporal lobe seizures usually begin in the deeper portions of the brain's temporal lobe.
The operation (called a temporal lobectomy) usually removes only the abnormal part of the temporal lobe, not the entire lobe.

 Incidence of Instant and Flux on Temporal and Pictorial Objects, Listeners and Spectators
Theatrical temporality did and has, to use Fried’s term, "defeated" the project of Diderot and the moment of Manet, and this is the temporality informing the time of cinema.
Should the painter not renounce the temporal flux (by choosing the most discrete element, the most compact particle of the space of the painting: the most critical moment), he will plunge into the murky depths of oblivion, dispersion, distraction, those of the arbitrary character of the arrests and spurts of the imagination.

 Temporal Cold War - Memory Alpha
The Temporal Cold War is an ongoing conflict being fought between several time-travelling factions in different periods, each trying to manipulate history for its own benefit, in violation of the Temporal Accords.
It is as of yet unknown exactly what the motivations of the different factions are, although it seems clear that the Temporal Prime Directive has been rescinded (at least partially) by a future Starfleet for the duration of this conflict.
In March 2153 the Suliban benefactor informed Captain Archer of yet another faction in the Temporal Cold War, explaining that this one had informed the Xindi that humanity would destroy their homeworld in the 26th century, leading to the Xindi attack on Earth.

 Temporal Logic
The importance of the S and U operators is that they are expressively complete with respect to first-order temporal properties on continuous, strictly linear temporal orders (which is not true for the one-place operators on their own).
The reification of time instants implied by the method of temporal arguments may be regarded as philosophically suspect, instants being rather artificial constructs unsuited to playing a foundational role in temporal discourse.
This kind of manoeuvre lies at the heart of hybrid temporal logics in which the standard apparatus of propositions and tense operators is supplemented by propositions which are true at unique instants, thereby effectively naming those instants without invoking philosophically dubious reification.

 Patterns for things that change with time
The essential point of Temporal Property is that you remove the obvious effectivity date, instead you use what looks like a regular property, but with an accessor that takes a date as an argument.
The essence of Temporal Property is this notion of having an accessor that is parameterized by date that frees the users of this property from having to navigate through a bunch of objects with Effectivity.
Temporal Property introduces the notion of referring to things with a time-based index, but takes it only so far as a single property.

 Temporal authority
Although the temporal authority must have such a law by which to judge unbelievers, and although you yourselves may also use it for judging others, still you should not invoke or use it for yourselves and in you own affairs.
Having learned that there must be temporal authority on earth, and how it is to be exercised in a Christian and salutary manner, we must now learn how far its arm extends and how widely its hand stretches, lest it extent too far and encroach upon God's kingdom and government.
Again, you say, "The temporal power is not forcing men to believe; it is simply seeing to it externally that no one deceives the people by false doctrine; how could heretics otherwise be restrained?" Answer: This the bishops should do; it is a function entrusted to them and not to the princes.

 Analysis Pattern: Temporal Property
The basic representation and interface for a temporal collection is similar to a map: provide a get and put operation that uses a date as an index.
When you have a temporal collection written, then it is easy to make a temporal collection of addresses for a customer.
One of the biggest problems using the temporal collection is if you have to persist the collection into a relational database - the mapping to tables is not exactly straightforward.
