|Interesting Federal Agencies & What They Do Interesting Federal Agencies & What They Do October 15 Cheap Andre Drummond Jersey , 2013 | Author: Carey Bourdier | Posted in Education
Of course everyone has heard of the Department of Defense or the Central Intelligence Agency, but there are many more United States government entities that are not as commonly known by the general public. While they are a bit more obscure, that is not to say that they are not important. Here are some descriptions of some of those agencies with which you might be more unfamiliar.
The U.S. National Geodetic Survey is one such organization that you might not know much about. Officially, this agency is part of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration or NOAA, which is part of the U.S. Department of Commerce. The National Geodetic Survey is responsible for mapping and charting as well as defining and managing our nation’s coordinate system.
As the name suggests, many of the employees are trained surveyors Cheap Blake Griffin Jersey , using a variety of surveying tools such as theodolites, inclinometers and total stations. Among the many tasks of this agency are providing the exact location of airports and runways, as well as quickly providing aerial images of areas affect by any type of natural disaster and providing pinpoint locations as to what areas are most affected.
Another interesting agency is the National Institute of Standards and Technology, which is also known as the National Metrological Institute. This agency also is part of the Department of Commerce. Its primary task is to advance the science of measurement, or metrology, and one of its laboratories is the home of the atomic clock Cheap Detroit Pistons Hats , which is what sets our nation’s official time. NIST also runs the Center for Neutron Research and the Center for Nanoscale Science and Technology, among other laboratories. Each year, the NIST publishes a handbook of uniform weight and measures.
There are also many different types of national laboratories scattered around the United States that are under the direction of the Department of Energy. Scientists at these labs study everything from particle physics to plasma physics to environmental remediation, as well as developing nuclear technology for energy or weaponry. The laboratory in Los Alamos, New Mexico, is probably the best known of these labs Cheap Detroit Pistons Hoodies , as it was here that the atom bomb was first developed as part of the Manhattan Project during World War II.
The definition of clandestine is that of an adjective that describes something kept secret, and the U.S. government has many agencies that deal with clandestine operations. The Defense Clandestine Service is probably the most obscure, unknown to most U.S. citizens. Those that work at this service as espionage agents or spies that are often on the ground in countries such as China, Iran and other nations. They gather intelligence for other defense agencies, and this service is actually part of a larger organization called the Defense Intelligence Agency, a group that is almost equally unknown to most of us in the United States.

As the studio behind the Wallace and Gromit movies herds its Shaun the Sheep into cinemas worldwide, the directors revealed that they modelled their fluffy protagonist on silent-movie star Buster Keaton.
Richard Goleszowski and Mark Burton, the brains behind Aardman Animations' latest stop-frame, no-dialogue feature film, made the remarks to AFP in Paris ahead of a new exhibition in the French capital showcasing the studio's work.
"Buster Keaton was always a model for us for Shaun Cheap Detroit Pistons Jerseys ," said Goleszowski (who directs under the professional name Richard Starzak).
"I had a picture of Buster Keaton pinned on the studio door just to remind the animators that they didn't have to make (it)... bleat too much, or be too physical," he said.
Charlie Chaplin's silent films also added inspiration for Shaun's new sidekick in the movie: a streetwise dog named Slip.
"One of the things you note from Charlie Chaplin films... is that there's often a little orphan girl character, and so we thought 'Well, let's do an Aardman version of that.' And so we created Slip, and she sort of acts as Shaun's guide in the big city Cheap Jon Leuer Jersey ," said Burton.
The reception for Shaun the Sheep, which started out as a children's TV animation in Britain under Goleszowski, has been extraordinary since it started its worldwide release last month.
Rottentomatoes, which aggregates reviews, ranks it at 100 percent positive, with critics praising its high technical quality and generous humor.

Bob Dylan, regarded as the voice of a generation for his influential songs from the 1960s onward, has won the Nobel Prize for Literature in a surprise decision that makes him the only singer-songwriter to win the award.
The 75-year-old Dylan - who won the prize for ""having created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition"" - now finds himself in the company of Winston Churchill, Thomas Mann and Rudyard Kipling as Nobel laureates.
The announcement was met with gasps in Stockholm's stately Royal Academy hall, followed - unusually - by some laughter.
Dylan's songs Cheap Langston Galloway Jersey , such as ""Blowin' in the Wind,"" ""The Times They Are a-Changin,'"" ""Subterranean Homesick Blues"" and ""Like a Rolling Sto.
