By William Hertling
In the 12 months 2035, robots, man made intelligences, and neural implants became ordinary. The Institute for Ethics retains the peace, utilizing social recognition to make sure that robots and people don't damage society or one another. yet a strong AI named Adam has stumbled on a manner round the restrictions.
Catherine Matthews, nineteen years previous, has a different reward: the power to control the web along with her neural implant. Yanked out of her completely traditional existence, Catherine turns into the final firewall status among Adam and his quest for international domination.

NORMAL MODE REJECTION The ability of a circuit to discriminate against normal mode voltage. It can be expressed as a dimensionless ratio, a scalar ratio or in decibels (20 times the log10 of that ratio). NORMAL MODE VOLTAGE A voltage across the input terminals of a device. NET CALORIFIC VALUE The measurement of the actual available energy per unit volume at standard conditions, which is always less than the gross calorific value by an amount equal to the latent heat of vaporization of the water formed during combustion.
It is an equipment entity incorporating necessary devices, control modules, and applicationspecific states and modes to execute some basic process-oriented task or group of tasks. May include equipment procedural elements (typically phase logic) and/or subordinate equipment modules, but may not overlap other equipment modules. Examples are a common (exclusive-use) weigh tank, a recirculation/transfer pump within a unit, and a shared-use ingredient dosing system EQUIVALENT TIME SAMPLING (ETS) The process that captures high speed electromagnetic events in real time (nanoseconds) and reconstructs them into an equivalent time (milliseconds) which allows easier measurement with present electronic circuitry.
PDVF, POLYVINYLIDENE FLUORIDE This fluorocarbon has substantially lower temperature limits than the others (250°F or 120°C), and is less inert chemically. It is dissolved by the ketones (acetone, MEK, MIBK) and attacked by benzene and high concentrations of sulfuric acid. The most insidious enemy is caustic, which causes brittleness and cracking. It has much better toughness and abrasion resistance, than the other fluorocarbons, as well as unique electrical properties (K = 8). PE (POLYETHYLENE) PEEK (POLYETHER ETHERKETONE) A low temperature insulation, which is compatible with a wide range of corrosives, but is attacked by most petroleum products.
