  1. ManaGeR

    ManaGeR or MGR was an early windowing system originally designed and developed for Sun computers in 1984 by Stephen A. Uhler, then at Bellcore. MGR featured overlapped, asynchronous windows and an applications interface that was both machine and network independent. Each MGR window had support for both character terminal operations as well as basic graphics operations. It was controlled by mousing pop-up menus, by keyboard interaction, and by escape sequences written on pseudo-terminals by client software. The system was presented at the USENIX Fourth Computer Graphics Workshop in 1987 as "MGR - a Window System for UNIX". The entire MGR source code was posted to the comp.sources.unix Usenet newsgroup, Volume 17, Issue 1, in January 1989. Internally, MGR was pronounced as munger referring to mung, although the users pronounced each letter.

    This is the total opposite of 2013 when active UK funds posted large outperformance of the FTSE All Share, performance over both years can be largely explained by active manager's propensity to hold more mid-caps than the market weighting.

    Craig said. The family made the sudden 1,000-mile trip from Tampa, Florida, to Dover Air Force Base to accept his body in person. Frank Gross with his father Craig; Frank was killed in 2011 by a roadside bomb in Afghanistan (Fox News) Toni said: That was such a dark time of our life. Although it was one of their lowest lows, there was support -- thanks to the Fisher House and the organization behind it. The Fisher Foundation helps military families around the country whose loved ones are in the hospital. In all, the non-profit has helped more than 300,000 families since 1990 by donating 58 houses across the country and in Germany and the United Kingdom. But the house at Dover Air Force Base was built specifically for families whose loved ones have made the ultimate sacrifice. Frank Gross with his mother Toni, who has been volunteering at Fisher House (Fox News) That, I think, was the most important Fisher House that we've ever built said Ken Fisher, Fisher House Foundation chairman and CEO. We believe in the power of family. We believe in, obviously, bringing the plight of the military family to light. This house is run by members of the Air Force — including house manager, technical sergeant Dorothy Whitfield. This house is their safe haven while they are here at Dover for their short stay, Whitfield said. The house has a fully stocked kitchen, multiple bedrooms, and a living room full of toys to make the family's hardest day somewhat easier. Whitfield said: If they're are sad and they want to cry, we're right there with them and we'll cry with them. Years after the Gross’ visit, the Fisher House is still making an impact on the family’s lives. Toni began volunteering. I just knew that I needed to give back and encourage others. I also knew that by giving back my spirit would be lifted.
