In early summer of 2011 a group of technologists was assembled to build infrastructure and applications to help reelect The President of the United States of America. At the onset, the technology team at Obama for America (OFA) had just shy of 18 months to bring together a team of 40 odd technologists, define the technical direction, build out the infrastructure, and develop and deploy hundreds of applica‐ tions. These applications all needed to be in place as soon as possible and would be vital to helping the campaign organize in some way. With that in mind we pulled together a team of amazing engineers (most with non-political backgrounds) and started the process of building on top of what the previous presidential cycle had started. In large part the main task was to refactor an existing infrastructure in order to unify several disparate vendor applications into a well-defined and consistent application programming interface (API) that could enable brand new applications. These were as disparate as new vendor integrations tothe tools that would help our more than 750,000 vol‐ unteers organize, fundraise, and talk directly to voters (along with hundreds of other backend and user-facing applications) to be built on top of it. In addition to building the core API, we also had to actually build the aforementioned applications, most of which were expected to scale to sustained traffic on the order of thousands of requests per second. All this while an organization the size of a fortune 500 com‐ pany is being built up around you and needs to use those applications to help it grow.
You’ll now be presented with an extensive list of different locales to choose from (see Figure 1-20). Thefirst two letters in the name specify the language while the second pair of letters specifies a regional difference. For example, en_US would be English customized for US users but en_GB would have settings specific to English speakers in the UK. You should select the language and country pairs that most closely match your needs and choose them by pressing the spacebar. You probably want both the ISO-8859 and the UTF-8 versions. If you decide to hedge your bets and select all locales, be warned that you will be in for quite a wait as the Pi generates all the locale settings for you. In fact, we tried this option and after waiting ages for just two locales to be generated, we got fed up and pulled the plug. After you select the locales you want, press the Tab key once to highlight the OK button and then press Enter to move tothe next screen. Here you’ll need to pick the locale you want to use by default (see Figure 1-21). Once you have made your choice, highlight it and press Enter. Once again, we’re back at the main configuration page.
⻬ Automatic name formatting: Another field that ACT! automatically provides you with is the Salutation field. The Salutation field holds the text that appears after the word Dear in a letter. For example, if you enter Mary Ellen Van der Snob as the contact name, Mary Ellen magically appears as the salutation. Of course, if you prefer to address your con- tacts in a more formal manner, feel free to change Mary Ellen to Ms. Van der Snob. When you enter a contact name into the database, ACT! auto- matically divides it into a first, middle, and last name. Again, if you click the ellipsis button tothe right of the Contact field, ACT! shows you how it plans to divide the contact’s name. This allows you to sort your data- base alphabetically by last name or to look up a contact by first name. This chapter and Chapter 5 both include ways to sort your database. If you attempt to enter a rather large, unique name, ACT! automatically opens the Contact Name dialog box, as shown in Figure 4-3, and asks you how you want to divide the name.
Read the following passage and mark theletter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to indicate the correct answer to each of the questions from 43 to 50. Whether it’s the melodic sound of an Eric Clapton solo or the growl of a heavy metal band, the electric guitar has influenced popular music and culture more than any other instrument. Rock’s greatest musicians have always been closely identified with their guitars. But the instruments being designed for tomorrow’s pop stars may look and sound rather different from today’s familiar electric and acoustic guitars.

The analysis in the previous chapter has answered the problems that are formulated in thefirst chapter of this research. Thefirst part of the analysis has answered the problem how the suffix –ity is attached the stem. In the analysis there is a new finding, namely to determine the form of suffix that will be attached tothe stem and the graphological changes will occur, the form of the final letter, penultimate letter, and the th0ird letter of the stem have an important role. The combination of those three letters determines the form of the suffix attached tothe stem and the graphological changes occur in the process. The combination of the final, the penultimate and the third letter can be a CVV, CVC, VVC, and VCC. In the suffixation process, of course there is also a stress shift. Since the computer can not recognize the changing of the stress, the changing is being ignored.

oxygen we need to breathe. At local neighborhood level, trees also bring important environmental benefits. They offer shade and shelter, which in turn reduces the amount of energy needed to heat and cool nearby buildings; at the same time, they also remove other impurities from the air we breathe.
In spite of its name, the hippo has relatively little in common with the horse and instead has a number of interesting similarities in common with the whale.When a hippo comes up after a stay at the bottom of a lake or river, it releases air through a blowhole, just like a whale. In addition, the hippo resembles the whale in that they both have thick layers of blubber for protection and they are almost completely hairless.
Over the past 600 years, English has grown from a language of few speakers to become the dominant language of international communication. English as we know it today emerged around 1350, after having incorporated many elements of French that were introduced following the Norman invasion of 1066. Until the 1600s, English was, for the most part, spoken only in England and had not extended even as far as two centuries, English began to spread around the globe as a result of exploration, trade (including slave trade), colonization, and missionary work. Thus, small enclaves of English speakers became established and grew in various parts of the world. As these communities proliferated, English gradually became the primary language of international business, banking and diplomacy.
