Electroencephalography (EEG) is the recording of electrical activity along the scalp produced by the firing of neurons within the brain. In clinical contexts, EEG refers to the recording of the brain's spontaneous electrical activity over a short period of time, usually 20–40 minutes, as recorded from multiple electrodes placed on the scalp. In neurology, the main diagnostic application of EEG is in the case of epilepsy, as epileptic activity can create clear abnormalities on a standard EEG study. A secondary clinical use of EEG is in the diagnosis of coma, encephalopathies, and brain death. EEG used to be a first-line method for the diagnosis of tumors, stroke and other focal brain disorders, but this use has decreased with the advent of anatomical imaging techniques such as MRI and CT.

The Secret Internet Protocol Router Network (SIPRNet) is "a system of interconnected computer networks used by the United States Department of Defense and the U.S. Department of State to transmit classified information (up to and including information classified SECRET) by packet switching over the TCP/IP protocols in a 'completely secure' environment". It also provides services such as hypertext document access and electronic mail. As such, SIPRNet is the DoD’s classified version of the civilian Internet.
SIPRNet is the SECRET component of the Defense Information Systems Network.

n the Middle East, this discrepancy is most acute. U.S. administrations for years have portrayed themselves as supporters of democracy, freedom, and human rights. The telegrams tell a different story of intimate and co-dependent relationships with unpleasant and repressive regimes in Riyadh, Cairo, and Rabat. This may have been suspected by many, but it is an entirely different matter to see these relations spelled out in the cool, precise prose of a diplomatic record. (The cables, by the way, are largely very well drafted, belying the mediocre reputation of the State Department.) That Egyptian intelligence chief, for example, is responsible for the torture and imprisonment without trial of thousands of Mubarak's political opponents. In recording the conversation with him, the U.S. cable has no mention of the words democracy, human rights, or fair trials.

"The Man" is a slang phrase that refers to the government, leaders of large corporations, and other authority figures in general. In addition to its derogatory sense it has also been used as a term of respect and praise.
The phrase "the Man is keeping me down" is commonly used to describe oppression. The phrase "stick it to the Man" encourages resistance to authority, and essentially means "fight back" or "resist", either openly or via sabotage.

A Rube Goldberg machine is a deliberately over-engineered machine that performs a very simple task in a very complex fashion, usually including a chain reaction. The expression is named after American cartoonist and inventor Rube Goldberg.

Otlet was de pionier van de 'library science': de documentering van de menselijke kennis. Otlet boog zich zijn hele leven over de theoretische, organisatorische en technische aspecten van een belangrijk maatschappelijk probleem: hoe maak je gegevens en kennis toegankelijk voor iedereen? Bestaat er een universeel systeem van classificatie? Alleen al de klassering van alle bestaande boeken in alle talen op fiches van 12 bij 7 cm zou een onmogelijke taak zijn. Hoeveel fiches zou de codificatie van alle gedachten en ideeën van ieder mens dan wel opleveren? Otlet maakte zowel het Mundaneum als de Universele Decimale Classificatie.
