Random information on the term “ACE”:
In baseball, an ace is the best starting pitcher on a team and nearly always the first pitcher in the team’s starting rotation. Barring injury or exceptional circumstances, an ace typically starts on Opening Day. In addition, aces are usually preferred to start crucial playoff games, sometimes on three days rest.
The term may be a derivation of the nickname of Asa Brainard, (real first name: “Asahel”), a 19th-century star pitcher, who was sometimes referred to as “Ace”.
In the early days of baseball, the term “ace” was used to refer to a run.
A lot of modern baseball analysts and fans have started using the term “ace” to refer to the elite pitchers in the game, not necessarily to the best starting pitcher on each team. For example, the April 27, 1981 Sports Illustrated cover was captioned “The Amazing A’s and Their Five Aces” to describe the starting rotation of the 1981 Oakland Athletics.

The third and final ship to take its name from James Buck was USS Buck (DD-761), an Allen M. Sumner-class destroyer, which served from 1946 until 1973.

Random information on the term “ADEPT”:
Adept is a Swedish metalcore band from Trosa. Formed in 2004, the band consists of vocalist Robert Ljung, guitarist Gustav Lithammer and bassist Filip Brandelius. They have released three EPs and four studio albums to date, including Another Year of Disaster in 2009, Death Dealers (which saw a shift in sound from their original post-hardcore influences) in 2011, Silence the World in 2013, and their latest release Sleepless in 2016. They are currently signed to Napalm Records.
Adept was founded in 2004 and now consists of Robert Ljung (vocals), Gustav Lithammer (guitars) and Filip Brandelius (bass). In their first year, they self-released their first demo, Hopeless Illusions. This was followed a year later by their first EP, When the Sun Gave Up the Sky, also self-released, and again in 2006 by another EP, The Rose Will Decay. The band soon gained prominence and was signed by the Panic & Action label.
On 4 February 2009, Adept released their first full-length album, Another Year of Disaster. In 2010, Adept toured in Germany with the band Her Bright Skies (also signed to Panic & Action), playing six venues: Hamburg, Berlin, Osnabrück, Munich, Stuttgart and Cologne. In August 2010, Adept began working on a follow-up to Another Year of Disaster. They worked with Fredrik Nordström, a music producer who had previously worked with well-known acts such as In Flames, Bring Me the Horizon and At the Gates. On 11 March 2011, they released their second album, Death Dealers, which saw their sound shifting from post-hardcore towards metalcore. They toured Europe for the first time that same year, starting in Sweden and moving on through France, Russia, Finland, Norway, Finland, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Hungary and Italy. In May they played some shows in Germany as part of their tour, supporting As Blood Runs Black, Caliban and For Today, and also planned to play some shows in Austria and appeared as an opening act for August Burns Red. Adept released their third and latest album, Silence the World in late 2013, and supported it by once again setting out on a European tour.

Random information on the term “STAB”:
Stab is an unincorporated community in Pulaski County, Kentucky, United States.
A post office called Stab was established in 1922, and remained in operation until it was discontinued in 1994. The name Stab was chosen in part for its brevity; the first choice had been rejected as too long by postal authorities.
Random information on the term “TRY”:
The conversion, try (American football, also known as a point(s) after touchdown, PAT, or extra point), or convert (Canadian football) occurs immediately after a touchdown during which the scoring team is allowed to attempt to score one extra point by kicking the ball through the uprights in the manner of a field goal, or two points by bringing the ball into the end zone in the manner of a touchdown; depending on league rules, one point may also be scored by manner of a safety.
Attempts at a try or convert are scrimmage plays, with the ball initially placed at any point between the hash marks, at the option of the team making the attempt. The yard line that attempts are made from depends on the league and the type of try or convert being attempted.
If the try or convert is scored by kicking the ball through the uprights, the team gets an additional one point for their touchdown, bringing their total for that score from six points to seven. If two points are needed or desired, a two-point conversion may be attempted by running or passing from scrimmage. A successful touchdown conversion brings the score’s total to eight.
Random information on the term “RIFT”:
A rift zone is a feature of some volcanoes, especially shield volcanoes, in which a linear series of cracks (or rifts) develops in a volcanic edifice, typically forming into two or three well-defined regions along the flanks of the vent. Believed to be primarily caused by internal and gravitational stresses generated by magma emplacement within and across various regions of the volcano, rift zones allow the intrusion of magmatic dykes into the slopes of the volcano itself. The addition of these magmatic materials usually contributes to the further rifting of the slope, in addition to generating fissure eruptions from those dykes that reach the surface. It is the grouping of these fissures, and the dykes that feed them, that serves to delineate where and whether a rift zone is to be defined. The accumulated lava of repeated eruptions from rift zones along with the endogenous growth created by magma intrusions causes these volcanoes to have an elongated shape. Perhaps the best example of this is Mauna Loa, which in Hawaiian means “long mountain”, and which features two very well defined rift zones extending tens of kilometers outward from the central vent.
Random information on the term “QUIP”:
Wit is a form of intelligent humour, the ability to say or write things that are clever and usually funny. A wit is a person skilled at making clever and funny remarks. Forms of wit include the quip and repartee.
As in the wit of Dorothy Parker’s set, the Algonquin Round Table, witty remarks may be intentionally cruel (as in many epigrams), and perhaps more ingenious than funny.
A quip is an observation or saying that has some wit but perhaps descends into sarcasm, or otherwise is short of a point, and a witticism also suggests the diminutive. Repartee is the wit of the quick answer and capping comment: the snappy comeback and neat retort. (Wilde: “I wish I’d said that.” Whistler: “You will, Oscar, you will”.)
Wit in poetry is characteristic of metaphysical poetry as a style, and was prevalent in the time of English playwright Shakespeare, who admonished pretension with the phrase “Better a witty fool than a foolish wit”. It may combine word play with conceptual thinking, as a kind of verbal display requiring attention, without intending to be laugh-aloud funny; in fact wit can be a thin disguise for more poignant feelings that are being versified. English poet John Donne is the representative of this style of poetry.
Random information on the term “GREAT”:
Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E.) is an education program that seeks to prevent use of controlled drugs, membership in gangs, and violent behavior. It was founded in Los Angeles in 1983 as a joint initiative of then-LAPD chief Daryl Gates and the Los Angeles Unified School District as a demand-side drug control strategy of the American War on Drugs.
Students who enter the program sign a pledge not to use drugs or join gangs and are informed by local police officers about the government’s beliefs about the dangers of recreational drug use in an interactive in-school curriculum which lasts ten weeks.
D.A.R.E. America’s operating revenue has declined from $10 million in 2002 to $3.7 million in 2010 following the publication of government reports that uniformly discredited the effectiveness of the program. D.A.R.E implemented a new curriculum based on work by Penn State and Arizona State researchers.
Its American headquarters is in Inglewood, California. DARE expanded to Great Britain in 1995.
Random information on the term “SOLVE”:
The Oregon Bottle Bill is a container-deposit legislation passed in the U.S. state of Oregon in 1971 and amended in 2007. It requires cans, bottles, and other containers of carbonated soft drink, beer, and (since 2009) water sold in Oregon to be returnable with a minimum refund value. It is administered and enforced by the Oregon Liquor Control Commission.
The law is credited with reducing litter and increasing container recycling. As a result, items which used to make up around 40% of roadside litter now represent about 6%. With return rates averaging 90%, another major benefit is in waste reduction and resource conservation, particularly for aluminum. By comparison, states without similar bills recycle on average 28% of their containers. Beverage distributors retain all deposits not reclaimed by consumers.
Oregon’s 1971 Beverage Container Act (ORS 459A.700 to 459A.740) was the first such legislation passed in the United States. It went into effect on October 1, 1972.
