Short of this technology, software products will continue to offer various forms of distinctive help, each with a certain primary strength: for standard help it is the completeness of its user support; for balloontype annotations, it is the rapid access to information and support for problem-solving; for step-by-step prompts, it is the protection and(More)

When UNIVAC 1 predicted a landslide for Eisenhower over Stevenson based on an analysis of early election returns, a finding that flew in the face of all the human political pundits, Charles Collingwood refused to believe the findings and told(More)
The transverse momentum and rapidity distributions of net protons and negatively charged hadrons have been measured for minimum bias proton–nucleus and deuteron– gold interactions, as well as central oxygen–gold and sulphur–nucleus collisions at 200 GeV per nucleon. The rapidity density of net protons at midrapidity in central nucleus– nucleus collisions(More)
