JSS (The Walking Dead)

"JSS" is the second episode of the sixth season of the post-apocalyptic horror television series The Walking Dead, which aired on AMC on October 18, 2015. The episode was directed by Jennifer Lynch. In a flashback, Enid's parents are killed by walkers while trying to change a fuse, in order to start their car. Locked in the now-bloodied car, Enid cries, she escapes and wanders the woods alone, foraging for food and shelter, hiding from and killing walkers. She writes the letters "JSS". Enid stumbles upon Alexandria's gates, she starts to walk away, but scrawls "JSS" on her hand and goes inside. In the present, Carol Peletier collects ingredients from the pantry. Shelly complains about wanting a pasta maker. Carol offers to teach her to make hand-made pasta. Carol returns home, where she sees Sam waiting for her and coldly tells him to get over Pete's death. Jessie Anderson tries to give Ron a haircut, but they get into an argument about Rick's role in Pete's death and Ron storms out. Meanwhile, Maggie Greene takes Deanna Monroe outside the walls to discuss expansion efforts, urges her to get past Reg's death and become Alexandria's leader again.

Eugene Porter and Tara Chambler head to the infirmary to get aspirin for Tara's headache and meet Denise Cloyd, Alexandria's replacement doctor. Denise confides to them that she is a psychiatrist, as she has not practiced surgery since medical school, she feels unequipped to fill Pete's role. Carl Grimes takes a walk in his neighborhood, sees Ron and Enid sitting together before being asked by Father Gabriel for self-defense lessons. Though reluctant, Carl tells him to come by to learn; as Carol prepares a meal, she sees Shelly being killed by a Wolf. All of a sudden, numerous Wolves kill any Alexandrian they come across. Holly is mortally wounded in the attack. Carl fortifies himself inside his house with Judith. Enid comes by. Carl convinces her to stay. In the watch tower, Spencer Monroe sees a truck approaching the fence and fires on it, killing the driver but inadvertently activating the truck's horn, he runs into Morgan. Spencer is too scared to fight; as panic ensues, Carol arms herself and kills several of the attackers, before disguising herself as a Wolf.

Morgan meets up with Carol, realizes that since the Wolves have no guns, they head for the armory in order to prevent the Wolves from looting it. Maggie leaves Deanna in Spencer's care before joining the battle. Carl rescues Ron from a Wolf. Jessie kills a Wolf. Morgan breaks off to save Father Gabriel, Carol continues alone, killing many Wolves along the way. Carol distributes guns to the surviving Alexandrians, she executes a Wolf that Morgan had taken prisoner, Morgan disagrees with Carol's belief that the Wolves must be killed. Morgan separates from the group again and runs into another group of Wolves, led by one he had encountered. However, Morgan convinces the Wolves to retreat by pointing out that the Alexandrians have guns and they do not. In the aftermath of the battle and Aaron kill several Wolves, upon inspecting one of the corpses, Aaron finds his backpack full of recruiting materials and realizes the Wolves found Alexandria because of him. Despite their best efforts, Denise is unable to save Holly.

PeopleTools

PeopleTools consists of proprietary application software developed by PeopleSoft Corporation, an Enterprise Resource Planning software vendor acquired by Oracle Corporation in 2004. PeopleTools facilitates the deployment of both vendor-developed and custom-developed applications using an Internet-based architecture known as the PeopleSoft Internet Architecture. Core vendor-developed PeopleTools applications include: Campus Solutions Customer Relationship Management Enterprise Performance Management Financials and Supply Chain Management Human Capital Management Interaction HubAs a result of the high level of abstraction used in PeopleTools, these applications can run in association with a variety of operating systems and databases and can provide multilingual support on a variety of web browsers. From a development perspective, PeopleTools consists of several technologies for building and customizing applications. While a PeopleTools developer can work with many programming languages, the primary language is PeopleCode, Application Designer is the primary integrated development environment.

The PIA consists of a variety components including: web, search and process scheduler servers as well as Integration Broker. These components can be deployed on a single real or virtual server but are most deployed in isolation for reasons of performance and scalability. Web Server Like traditional web-based applications, web servers are used within the PIA to provide HTML-based documents for browser-based clients. Supported web server options have changed over time, as of PeopleTools 8.54, PeopleTools applications can be deployed using either Oracle WebLogic or IBM WebSphere. Unlike traditional web-based applications, the Java-based software deployed in the web servers contains no application logic. In the PIA, all application logic is deployed at the application server layer. Application Server The application server, or “app server,” is the tier between the web and database layers; this layer is responsible for receiving requests from the web server and issuing SQL to the database. The app server is built on BEA Tuxedo technology, as such, is responsible for maintaining transaction isolation and database connection pools in PeopleTools applications.

Using Tuxedo, PeopleTools app server domains are created as a collection of processes servicing specific needs and clients in addition to web server requests. Within a domain, several types of related programs can be launched, including remote call COBOL, Application Engine, BI Publisher programs. Process Scheduler Server Like the app server, the process scheduler server, or "scheduler," is built on BEA Tuxedo and is deployed as a collection of processes designed to launch and schedule various programs types; such processes form a process scheduler domain and are used to execute COBOL, SQR, Crystal Reports, Application Engine, nVision, BI Publisher, many other types of batch programs. Unlike the app server, the scheduler does not return HTML to the web server for delivery to the client browser. Rather, the scheduler executes programs and posts logs and reports to the web server for user retrieval. Database Server The database server contains all application data as well as all metadata associated with various PeopleTools object types.

It contains many PeopleCode-based application scripts and programs that both the application and process scheduler servers execute. As PeopleTools is built to operate on many database platforms, database specific constructs and programming languages are not traditionally used. Alternatively, developers write Meta-SQL, the app or scheduler servers translate such into the proprietary SQL for the related database technology. Search Server Based on predefined search indexes, the search server returns search results for consumption in the client's web browser. For 9.2 applications running PeopleTools 8.54, the only supported search server technology is the Oracle Secure Enterprise Search. Integration Broker Integration Broker is another major server component of PeopleTools. Making use of the PIA web and app servers, Integration Broker sends and receives data via web service-based APIs. While adhering to standards-based web service standards - such as XML-based SOAP and JSON-based RESTful web services -, Integration Broker provides a simple proprietary XML-based standard for PeopleTools-based applications to exchange data both synchronously and asynchronously.

Application Designer is the core tool used to customize PeopleTools-based applications. This tool is used to either connect to the database or app server for the purposes of creating and updating PeopleTools object types; the following is a brief list of such object types created or modified in Application Designer: Field Definition Record Definition PeopleCode Page definition Page Group definition Menu Definition Business Process design Project definitionApplications can be built or customised in a development environment assembled into a project for migration to test and live environments. Current computing trends have led to the introduction of the Fluid User Interface in PeopleTools 8.54. The Fluid UI technology provides a means for PeopleTools developers to create responsive and modern looking applications; as this technology matures, it is anticipated Oracle will provide redesigned application pages making use of such technology as customers adopt and apply application maintenance utilizing Fluid UI functionality anticipated with PeopleTools 8.55.

Texas State Highway 35

State Highway 35, or SH 35, is a north–south highway in southeastern and southern Texas between Houston, junction of I-45 on the southeast side of the city and Corpus Christi, where it terminates at I-37. SH 35 takes a north–south route from Houston to Angleton, junction SH 288, roughly parallels the inlets of the Gulf of Mexico in a northeast-southwest course through a low, flat coastal plain. To the south and west of Palacios it gives vistas of several inlets of the Gulf of Mexico, becoming one of the more scenic routes of southern Texas. At Gregory it meets and joins U. S. Highway 181, which coincide to their mutual terminus over Nueces Bay causeway and bridge over Corpus Christi Bay, meeting I-37 and SH 286 at a freeway interchange. Only in its southernmost part near Corpus Christi is State Highway 35 a freeway, although significant stretches of it are divided highway, it is not to be confused with Interstate 35. It is not the shortest or quickest route between Houston and Corpus Christi, which consists of US 59 and US 77.

SH 35 begins at an interchange with Interstate 37 near downtown Corpus Christi concurrent with US 181. The two highways run as a freeway near Corpus Christi Bay before crossing Nueces Bay into the town of Portland. In Portland, US 181 leaves SH traveling towards Sinton. Just outside Gregory, the freeway segment of SH 35 ends. After crossing FM 136, SH 35 begins to run in an east-west direction to Aransas Pass, before turning towards the northeast. In the town of Rockport, SH 35 runs as a divided expressway before returning to its business loop; the highway passes by the Aransas National Wildlife Refuge before entering into Refugio County. In Houston, SH 35 is Telephone Road and Reveille Street from its northern terminus at Interstate 45. An upgrade of the facility to freeway standards is tentatively named the Alvin Freeway; as of 2006, only 1.3 miles had been built, under the sign Spur 5. However, the mainlanes extend less than half a mile south of Interstate 45 adjacent to the campus of the University of Houston.

The number was used for Loop 5, designated on September 26, 1939 from US 81 through Kyle to US 81 as a renumbering of SH 2 Loop. On September 28, 1950, the section along Burleson St was cancelled and the rest along Center St became Spur 5. On October 27, 1952, Spur 5 was cancelled and transferred to FM 150. On June 30, 1958, another route called Spur 5, was designated from FM 1406 and SH 124 to Interstate 10. On October 31, 1962, The section of the Spur 5 from FM 1406 to SH 73 became a rerouting of SH 124. On August 4, 1988, Spur 5 was cancelled and mileage was transferred to FM 1663; the current route was designated on October 29, 1998. An overlap of Highway 35 with the Gulf Freeway was constructed in the 1980s; this portion extends from Spur 5 to a distance of about 1.6 miles. This section contains three elevated lanes in each direction; this overlap section is 22 lanes wide, including mainlanes, feeder roads, a reversible HOV lane. Once built, the Alvin Freeway is planned to follow a corridor near Mykawa Road from the terminus to Beltway 8 before returning to its normal undivided state.

SH 35 was proposed on November 19, 1917 as a route from Paris to Houston. On August 21, 1923, the northern half of the highway had been renumbered as SH 49, with the new northern end now going east to the Louisiana border. On November 14, 1927, it extended to Alvin. On April 10, 1934, it had been extended southwest along cancelled SH 58 and SH 57, ending in Gregory. SH 35 Spur was designated from 35 to the Retrieve Prison Farm; this SH 35 Spur was cancelled on July 15, 1935. On February 21, 1938, a new SH 35 Spur was designated to Danbury, as SH 35 was rerouted to bypass Danbury. On September 26, 1939, the section north of Houston was removed when it was renumbered as U. S. Highway 59 and U. S. Highway 84. SH 35 Spur was renumbered as Spur 28. On October 5, 1972, SH 35 extended to Corpus Christi along US 181. On January 15, 1986, an Angleton bypass opened, with the old route becoming Loop 558. On February 25, 1987, SH 35 was rerouted back over Loop 558, the bypass became Loop 558 instead. On April 27, 1995, another bypass opened, so that SH 35 no longer goes through Aransas Pass or Rockport.

On March 29, 2007, an Old Ocean bypass opened, with the old route becoming Loop 419. SH 35A was a proposed spur route off SH 35 designated on March 18, 1918, with a route splitting off at Livingston, travelling west to New Waverly. On September 17, 1918, a branch of SH 35 was designated from Livingston via Liberty and Devers to Anahuac. On January 20, 1919, the section of SH 35A south of Coldspring was cancelled, the section north of Coldspring became the main route; the route from Livingston via Liberty and Devers to Anahuac was renamed SH 35A. On August 21, 1923, the section from Anahuac to Devers was renumbered as SH 61, the section north of Devers was cancelled. By 1928, the Livingston to Liberty section was restored as SH 132. By 1933, that became a portion of SH 146. SH 35B was a spur of SH 35 designated on November 1922 from Jefferson to the Louisiana border. On August 21, 1923, this was renumbered as SH 49. SH 35 has one former business route. Business State Highway 35-C is a business loop.

The road was bypassed on April 1, 1965 by SH 35 and designated Loop 409. The road was redesignated as Business SH 35-C on June 21, 1990. Business State Highway 35-E is a business loop that runs through West Columbia

Zune Pad

The Zune Pad, a squircle, is the primary control mechanism for Zune 4, 8, 16, 80 and 120. The pad lets users of this device scroll through a long list of songs with a few flicks of the finger press the button to select tracks or change the volume, it was designed by Microsoft for the release of the second generation Zune. The Zune Pad resembles a square like figure, it comprises a touch-sensitive button with simulated up, left and center navigational "button" response. It combines this touch interface with standard 5-way D-pad functionality; the Pad is capable of detecting movements in all directions. The user can press the top, left and center of the pad inward to navigate through lists or select an item or use the touch interface to move up, down and right. Selection is always done with a center click; the user can slide to move up or down on the screen. The motion of the select box on the screen is viewport-controlled where moving the finger up moves the view of the content up; this is unlike direct content manipulation interfaces, where moving the finger up moves the content up, equivalent to moving the viewport down the list.

The Zune Pad allows the user to coast after flicking the list and to accelerate through the list with repeated flicks, unlike direct content manipulation interfaces in which a touch grabs and stops the onscreen content. The user can thus move through a large list at high speed with just the flick gesture. Touching or clicking the Zune Pad will cause the coasting to stop, it allows the user to slide left and right to move through the menus at the top of the screen. The user can always click to navigate. There is no navigation function which can be performed only with the touch functions — the D-pad functionality is always sufficient; the Zune Pad is a capacitive touchpad and therefore detection is dependent upon using a finger. Directional pad functions are simulated by determining where the user's finger is when pressing the button; this works well unless the user is wearing gloves or anything that the touch surface cannot "read". The user cannot adjust the sensitivity and scroll speed, but can choose to turn it off and use the button as a standard directional pad instead.

KFJM

KFJM is a public radio station in Grand Forks, North Dakota airing an adult album alternative format with news in the mornings, jazz in the late evenings and blues and folk on the weekends. The station was owned by the University of North Dakota until September 2018 when it was purchased by Prairie Public Radio. KFJM carries programs from Public Radio International. KFJM is the second oldest radio station in North Dakota, signing on a year after WDAY in Fargo. KFJM signed on as KUND in 1923 on the AM dial as a college radio station for University of North Dakota, making it one of the first college radio stations and the second radio station to sign on in North Dakota after WDAY, its frequency has changed throughout the years from 1310, 1440, most 1370. In 1995, KFJY-FM signed on at 90.7 FM simulcasting on KFJM AM with jazz overnight. During April 1997, both stations went off the air. KFJY 90.7 was switched to KUND 90.7. KUND-FM switched call signs with KFJM 89.3 FM after the flood. On July 31, 2002, KUND/KFJM went off the air.

KUND/KFJM signed back on on August 6, 2002 with its adult album alternative format featuring the long running "Into the Music with Mike Olson" along with NPR's The World Cafe with David Dye, American Routes, Morning Edition from NPR. and North Dakota Public Radio. KUND AM 1370 was sold to Real Presence Radio, a Roman Catholic organization, in 2004 to allow funding for a transmitter move, completed on August 22, 2006; the call sign changed to KWTL, it began airing Catholic programming from EWTN. On August 9, 2006, KFJM moved its transmitter from the University of North Dakota campus to a tower located in the Grand Forks industrial park. In 2006, KDSU 91.9 FM of Fargo began simulcasting some of KFJM's programming, including "Into the Music with Mike Olson" and The World Cafe with David Dye during the midday. KPPR 89.5 FM of Williston was added to the network in 2011 as Prairie Public moved the news and classical programming to new station KPPW 88.7.
