  Tertiary - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Tertiary period was previously one of the major divisions of the geologic timescale, from the end of the Cretaceous period about 65 million years ago to the start of the Quaternary period about 1.6 million years ago.
The Tertiary covers roughly the time span between the demise of the dinosaurs and beginning of the most recent ice age.
Climates during the Tertiary slowly cooled, starting off in the Paleocene with tropical-to-moderate worldwide temperatures and ending up with extensive glaciations at the end of the period.

The tertiary culture, or tertiary paradigm, tertiary functioning and interaction style, is an integrative, non-conflictuous way of thinking, behaving and feeling, resulting into a common organization by internal factors, i.e.
And many of the features of the tertiary culture are very threatening for a secondary organization: free communication, the elaboration of a consensus outside of, or divergent from the ruler's position.

Tertiary Prevention was originally designed to focus on the needs of individuals who exhibited patterns of problem behavior.
This means that Tertiary Prevention allows teams to vary features of the process (e.g., data collection tools used, breadth of information gathered, specificity and number of hypotheses generated, extent of the behavioral support plan, and degree of monitoring) to provide the most individualized behavior support possible.
Tertiary Prevention interventions are implemented through a flexible, but systematic, process of functional behavioral assessment and behavioral intervention planning.

 ARS | Publication request: Verification of a Tertiary Model for Growth of Salmonella
Ability of the tertiary model to reverse the modeling process and predict the data used to develop it (i.e., verification) was evaluated using a safe prediction zone method where the log cycle difference (Delta) between observed density and density predicted by the tertiary model was determined for 433 prediction cases obtained from 30 growth curves.
The proportion of Delta (pDelta) in a safe prediction zone from a Delta of -0.5 (fail-safe) to 0.25 (fail-dangerous) log CFU per g was used as the index of model performance.
An acceptable pDelta of 0.79 was obtained for the tertiary model predictions of the kinetic data used to develop it and thus, its predictions were successfully verified.
