  THE COLLECTOR’S GUIDE: NATIVE AMERICAN BASKETS
Before these early collectors entered the arena, some Native American basketry had already begun to exhibit change as evidenced by the appearance of trade items incorporated into the baskets such as glass beads, commercial yarns and exotic feathers from the ostrich and peacock.
As collectors became more discerning about the quality of a basket's weave as well as exhibiting a preference for particular types of designs and basketry shapes, the weavers responded to this new market.
Although there had been a tradition of weaving miniature baskets among a few groups such as the Pomo in California, the making of these minute baskets proudly testified to the virtuosity of the weaver's skill and came to be produced by a number of tribal groups by the 1920s.

  Estate Planning for the Pen Collector
Under the living trust, all or part of the collector's property is placed in the custody of a trustee, perhaps with the use and benefit of it granted to the collector for his lifetime and the direction that it be distributed upon his death to a named beneficiary or beneficiaries.
In the case of a mature collector with a mature spouse, property can be left in trust for the spouse during his or her lifetime, and may be directed to pass to one or more children or other named beneficiaries upon the death of the surviving spouse.
This is helpful if the collector wants the surviving spouse to have total access to the property during his or her lifetime in order to liquidate some or all of it.

 American AntiGravity - Collector Capacitance and optimizing Lifters
Hence, the collector ends up being 4cm in height because the top 1cm of the foil is wrapped over the balsa, and the collector is still approximately 2mm thick, as the aluminum-foil has negligable thickness.
One method of enhancing the collector is to insert a plastic drinking-straw underneath the foil during construction, thereby increasing the width of the collector while adding minimal weight.
Generally, a 2mm top-width (from the foil-wrapped balsa strut) seems to be an "average" width for the collector, whereas a foil-wrapped plastic drinking-straw at 5 to 6mm appears to be the maximum width for the collector.

 House heating Solar Shed -- homemade collectors
The collectors are integrated with the south wall of the shed.
I decided to include air vents in the back wall of the collector that would allow cool air from inside the shed to enter the collector near be bottom through a lower vent, and heated air to exit the collector near the top.
My thinking in using collectors tilted at 70 degrees was that this is a good angle for winter collection, and that it looked better with the shed (basically its just an extension of the gambrel roof slope to the ground).

 Son'a collector - Memory Alpha, the Star Trek Wiki
The collector was designed to launch an injector that would produce a cascading reaction within the rings, allowing the collector to harvest the radiation that emanated from them.
Fortunately, the collector was disabled moments before it could launch the injector when Jean-Luc Picard, Worf, and Subahdar Gallatin commandeered Ru'afo's flagship and deactivated the collector.
Despite this discrepancy, the intended length of the collector was intended to be the smaller 4000ft length.

 A garbage collector for C and C++
The collector is also used by a number of programming language implementations that either use C as intermediate code, want to facilitate easier interoperation with C libraries, or just prefer the simple collector interface.
Alternatively, the garbage collector may be used as a leak detector for C or C++ programs, though that is not its primary goal.
If the collector is used in a multithreaded environment and configured for thread-local allocation, it may in some cases significantly outperform malloc/free allocation in time.

 Don't blab too much to bill collectors
If you have a payment agreement with a debt collector to resolve a judgment against you, it may not be lawful for the debt collector to levy your bank accounts.
Any violation by the collector may be a good case for an attorney familiar with the provisions of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
For example, with that information the collector can get an order of attachment from the court, provide that order to the sheriff, who then serves notice of levy upon the bank you have told them about.

 Understanding IAM, Collector Efficiency
A solar collector that is mounted on a device to track the sun from sunrise to sunset (as sometimes used in PV applications) will maintain a IAM value of 1 throughout the day, as the collector is always facing the sun, and therefore providing performance output in line with the standard performance curve.
This is because flat plate collectors, evacuated tube collectors with a flat absorber, or those that using reflective panels usually have a fairly similar set of transversal and longitudinal IAM values.
The flat plate collector's IAM values drop away from 1 as the angle increases, and as such solar conversion efficiency is only at peak levels at midday.

 Michael Crawford's Review of the Week
Apu and the Comic Book Guy are the third wave, along with the special exclusive Collector, the superhero/villian persona of the Comic Book Guy.
I wish the design of the comic book was reversed, with the thicker brown cover on the inside and the white pages on the outside - that fits more in line with the stickers we see on the front and back - but that's a minor quibble.
The Collector has a few more problems on the face paint, but they are fairly minor.

The title character is Frederick, a butterfly collector (who prefers to be called Ferdinand), who decides to "collect" the long-admired-from-a-distance object of his fantasy, an art student named Miranda.
This is where The Collector succeeds best, in making Frederick not a monster, but a pitiful, lonely man in need of love and willing to give Miranda everything except her freedom.
Near the end, an unexpected tragedy occurs, and we are thrust into the true terror of the situation, discovering in the process what Frederick is really made of through his response to the situation.
