The concept of pipelines was invented by Douglas McIlroy at Unix's ancestral home of Bell Labs, prior to the actual invention of the operating system, and implemented in Unix at his insistence, shaping its toolbox philosophy. It is named by analogy to a physical pipeline. The standard shell syntax for pipelines is to list multiple programs to invoke in one command, separated by vertical bars:
Each program is assumed to take input and give output on its standard streams. Each "|" tells the shell to connect the standard output of the left program to the standard input of the right program by an inter-process communication mechanism called an (anonymous) pipe, implemented in the operating system. Since pipes are unidirectional, data flows through the pipeline from left to right.
As a member of the GenoshanPress Gang, Pipeline was exempt from the mutate process that his fellow mutants were subjected to, and served his country faithfully. He participates in the raid that captures four of the X-Men's charges. This takes places on the grounds of the X-Men mansion, in Salem Center, New York, a violation of American sovereignty. One of the prisoners, Warlock, did not survive subsequent imprisonment. He also participates in a second raid on US soil, attacking an airport in an attempt to get at Rene Majcomb.
After the fall of the Genoshan government, Pipeline fought in the resulting civil war on the side of the Magistrates. According to claims he made, he lost his home and family in this war.
During a raid on a mutate camp, he was captured by Cable and telepathically forced to help. He, Cable, Domino, Jenny Ransome and Phillip Moreau investigated clues to a new mutate facility, eventually discovering that the otherdimensional Sugar Man was behind the mutate process. He soon changed his loyalty, agreeing to work with the rebels to bring peace to Genosha.
Trans is the twelfth studio album by Canadian musician and singer-songwriter Neil Young, released on December 29, 1982. Recorded and released during his Geffen-era in the 1980s, Trans baffled many Neil Young fans upon its initial release—a Sennheiser vocoder VSM201 features prominently in six of the nine tracks. While the album was poorly received, some critics point out that the melodies are strong and that the album involves Young addressing new musical movements, as he did previously on Rust Never Sleeps and later with the grunge movement on Mirror Ball.
Originally released as an vinyl LP, the album was re-issued in 1998 on compact disc, although not in the US. The compact disc has noticeably longer versions of "Sample and Hold" and "Like An Inca". Transformer Man has a different mix on the CD version, it contains more effects on the electronic drums and synthesizer, and a new synthesizer sound.
Trans is a composition for orchestra and tape by the German composer Karlheinz Stockhausen, written in 1971. It is Number 35 in the composer's catalog of works.
Trans is as much a work of theatre as it is a musical composition. It has a somnolent, irrational look and feel, for the simple reason that it is the representation of a dream. Stockhausen regarded it as an important work for himself, a key work and a whole new beginning—a "transcendental piece" (Stockhausen 1978b, 511).
The overall course of the entire piece came to Stockhausen in a dream during the night of 9–10 December 1970. In the morning, he had an early appointment, but took the time to jot down briefly in words what he had heard and seen: "Dreamt orchestral work … orchestra sits in series … sound wall opens with different intervals at periods of about twenty seconds, allowing music behind this wall to come through—brass and woodwinds mixed—and I hear low instruments that are the fundamentals; in timbres they're colored like organ mixtures. With each low melodic line of one of the lower instruments there are several instruments in parallel, playing softer and coloring this low sound … at the same time I hear the sound of a weaving chair" (Cott 1973, 54–55). When he was asked by Otto Tomek to compose a piece for the Donaueschingen Festival the next October, Stockhausen first arranged to make some experiments for staging, lighting, and performing action in the hall there. Only after these were carried out in May and June 1971 did he begin composing the score (on 17 July). It was completed on 4 September, and the premiere took place in the Donaueschingen Stadthalle on 16 October 1971 (Stockhausen 1978a, 181; Stockhausen 1978b, 526).
Transgender people experience a mismatch between their gender identity or gender expression and their assigned sex.Transgender is also an umbrella term because, in addition to including trans men and trans women whose binary gender identity is the opposite of their assigned sex (and who are sometimes specifically termed transsexual if they desire medical assistance to transition), it may include genderqueer people (whose identities are not exclusively masculine or feminine, but may, for example, be bigender, pangender, genderfluid, or agender). Other definitions include third-gender people as transgender or conceptualize transgender people as a third gender, and infrequently the term is defined very broadly to include cross-dressers.
Many transgender people experience a period of identity development. The degree to which individuals feel genuine, authentic, and comfortable within their external appearance and accept their genuine identity is referred to as transgender congruence. Being transgender is independent of sexual orientation; transgender people may identify as heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual, asexual, etc., or may consider conventional sexual orientation labels inadequate or inapplicable.
