  1. THOMAS

    THOMAS is the database of United States Congress legislative information. It is operated by the Library of Congress and was launched in January 1995 at the inception of the 104th Congress. It is a comprehensive, Internet-accessible source of information on the activities of Congress, including: ⁕Bills & resolutions ⁕The texts of bills and resolutions ⁕Summaries and status ⁕Voting results, including how individual members voted ⁕Congressional Record, including the daily digest ⁕Presidential nominations ⁕Treaties The database is named after Thomas Jefferson, who was the third President of the United States. It seems there is no reason its name is in all upper-case letters. According to some sources, 'THOMAS' is an acronym for "The House [of Representatives] Open Multimedia Access System", but as of November 2006 this text is not apparent anywhere in the THOMAS Web site. This explanation may be a backronym. The website allows users to share legislative information via several social networking sites, and there have been proposals for an application programming interface.

  5. Navy Secretary Thomas Modly:

    FILE - In this Dec. 3, 2019, file photo, acting Navy Secretary Thomas Modly testifies during a hearing of the Senate Armed Services Committee about about ongoing reports of substandard housing conditions in Washington, on Capitol Hill. ( AP Photo/Alex Brandon, File) After Croziersletter became public, Navy Secretary Thomas Modly then flew to the ship, at port in Guam, and delivered a speech to the crew in which Navy Secretary Thomas Modly lambasted Brett Crozier, saying Navy Secretary Thomas Modly was either too naive or too stupid to be in charge of an aircraft carrier -- or perhaps leaked the letter intentionally. Modly charged that Brett Crozier had allowed details of the ships operational security to become public, either recklessly or intentionally. If Brett Crozier [ Crozier ] didnt think, in my opinion, that this information [ the letter ] wasnt going to get out into the public, in this day and information age that we live in, then Brett Crozier was either A, too naive or too stupid to be a commanding officer of a ship like this, the alternative is that he did this on purpose.
