Alfa Romeo Giulietta (940)

The Alfa Romeo Giulietta (Type 940) is a small family car (C-segment) produced by the Italian automaker Alfa Romeo. Giulietta production started towards the end of 2009 and the model was introduced at the March 2010 Geneva Motor Show. In a viability plan forwarded to the US Government in February 2009, Chrysler (a partner of Alfa Romeo parent company Fiat) reported that the 147 replacement would come to market as the Milano and that it could be built in the USA. However, as of early 2010 Fiat was instead planning to concentrate on bringing larger models to the US, such as the Giulia. The Giulietta came in second place in the 2011 European Car of the Year awards. Between 2010 and 2019 over 400,000 Giuliettas were built. It is current top Alfa sales with about 32,000 cars per year (2017).

The 2010 Giulietta is available only as a 5-door hatchback. The Giulietta got its Italian dealer presentation on 22 and 23 May 2010. The Giulietta advertising campaign is made with Hollywood actress Uma Thurman. The end of the advert features the car's mottos - 'I am Giulietta, and I am such stuff as dreams are made on' and 'Without heart, we would be mere machines'.

Boeing P-29

The Boeing P-29 and XF7B-1 were an attempt to produce a more advanced version of the highly successful P-26. Although slight gains were made in performance, the U.S. Army Air Corps and U.S. Navy did not order the aircraft.

Breguet 941

The Breguet 941 was a French four-engine turboprop STOL transport aircraft developed by Breguet in the 1960s. Although widely evaluated, it was not built in large numbers, with only one prototype and four production aircraft being built.

CINW

CINW was the final call sign used by an English language AM radio station located in Montreal, Quebec, which, along with French-language sister station CINF, ceased operations at 7:00 p.m. ET on January 29, 2010. Owned and operated by Corus Quebec, it broadcast on 940 kHz with a full-time power of 50,000 watts as a clear channel (class A) station, using a slightly directional antenna designed to improve reception in downtown Montreal. (Six years later, the 940 AM frequency resurfaced when a new station, under the callsign CFNV, launched with plans for a Francophone news/talk format.)

CINW traced its origin to an experimental facility, with the call letters XWA, which began test radiotelephone transmissions in 1919, and whose first documented entertainment broadcast was made on the evening of May 20, 1920. Due to its heritage, the station was generally considered to be Canada's first and oldest broadcasting station, as well as one of the first in the world.

Eutychius of Alexandria

Eutychius of Alexandria (Arabic: Sa'id ibn Batriq or Bitriq; 10 September 877 – 12 May 940) was the Melkite Patriarch of Alexandria. He is known for being one of the first Christian Egyptian writers to use the Arabic language. His writings include the chronicle Nazm al-Jauhar ("Row of Jewels"), also known by its Latin title Eutychii Annales ("The Annals of Eutychius").

IIHF World Ranking

The IIHF World Ranking is a ranking of the performance of the national ice hockey teams of member countries of the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF). It is based on a formula giving points for each team's placings at IIHF-sanctioned tournaments over the previous four years. The ranking is used to determine seedings and qualification requirements for future IIHF tournaments. The current leader in rankings is Canada in men's play and the United States in women's play.

KIXZ

KIXZ (940 AM) is a radio station broadcasting a News Talk Information format. Licensed to Amarillo, Texas, United States, the station serves the Amarillo area. The station is currently owned by Townsquare Media and is licensed to Gap Broadcasting Amarillo License, LLC. The station features programming from ABC Radio and Fox News Radio. Its studios are located on Southwest 34th Avenue in Southwest Amarillo, and its transmitter tower is based southeast of the city in unincorporated Randall County.

KIXZ's format was flipped from Nostalgia/Big Band to News/Talk, as "News/Talk 940" in late March 2003 during the beginnings of the Iraq War. The initial lineup included Glenn Beck 8a-11a, Dr. Laura (tape delay from previous weekday) 11a-2p, Sean Hannity 2p-5p and Michael Savage 5p-8p. KIXZ ran a top 40 format in the 60's, going up against KPUR.

Wink Martindale was a prominent DJ on the Jones Radio Network, Nostalgia/Big Band format, featured in the late 1990s and early 2000s on KIXZ.

List of AMD Opteron microprocessors

Opteron is the name of a family of CPUs within the AMD64 line. Designed by AMD for the server market, it competed with Intel's Xeon. The Opteron family is succeeded by the Zen-based Epyc series.

For Socket 940 and Socket 939 Opterons, each chip has a three-digit model number, in the form Opteron XYY. For Socket F and Socket AM2 Opterons, each chip has a four-digit model number, in the form Opteron XZYY. For all Opterons, the first digit (the X) specifies the number of CPUs on the target machine:

1 – Designed for uniprocessor systems

2 – Designed for dual-processor systems

8 – Designed for systems with 4 or 8 processorsFor Socket F and Socket AM2 Opterons, the second digit (the Z) represents the processor generation. Presently, only 2 (dual-core), DDR2, 3 (quad-core) and 4 (six-core) are used.

For all Opterons, the last two digits in the model number (the YY) indicate the clock frequency of a CPU, a higher number indicating a higher clock frequency. This speed indication is comparable to processors of the same generation if they have the same amount of cores. Single-cores and dual-cores have different indications, despite sometimes having the same clock frequency.

Model Number Methodology for the AMD Opteron 4000 and 6000 Series Processors.

AMD Opteron processors are identified by a four digit model number, ZYXX, where:Z – indicates Product Series

4000 Series = Low cost and power optimized 1- and 2-way servers

6000 Series = High performance 2- and 4-way serversY – indicates series generation

41xx = 1st generation of 4000 series

61xx = 1st generation of 6000 seriesXX – communicates a change in product specifications within the series, and is not a relative measure of performance.

The suffix HE or EE indicates a high-efficiency/energy-efficiency model having a lower TDP than a standard Opteron. The suffix SE indicates a top-of-the-line model having a higher TDP than a standard Opteron.

United Nations Security Council Resolution 940

United Nations Security Council resolution 940, adopted on 31 July 1994, after recalling resolutions 841 (1993), 861 (1993), 862 (1993), 867 (1993), 873 (1993), 875 (1993), 905 (1994), 917 (1994) and 933 (1994), the Council permitted a United States-led force to restore President Jean-Bertrand Aristide and authorities of the Government of Haiti, and extended the mandate of the United Nations Mission in Haiti (UNMIH) for an additional six months.

Volvo 900 Series

The Volvo 900 Series is a range of executive cars produced by the Swedish manufacturer Volvo Cars from 1990 to 1998. The 900 Series was introduced in 1990 to replace the 700 Series from which it derived. Prior to the end of its production, the 960 was renamed as the Volvo S90 (saloon) and Volvo V90 (estate), and the 940 was renamed 940 Classic, becoming the last rear-wheel-drive cars from Volvo.

Visible differences between the 700 and the 900 Series included redesigned rear styling of the saloon models (late 700 estates and early 900 estates are visually identical). The 960 was introduced in 1991 along with a new family of modular engines, and then was substantially revised for the 1995 model year, improving the handling. The range was first augmented and finally supplanted by the Volvo 850 in 1993, with the last of the 900s being sold in 1998. Some 900 Series were built as chassis for ambulances and hearses after the main production run had been completed.

WMAC

WMAC (940 AM, "News Talk 940") is a Class B radio station serving the Macon, Georgia area with a News/Talk format. This station broadcasts on a clear channel AM frequency 940 kHz and is under ownership of Cumulus Media.

The station operates from a five-tower facility in western Macon. A single tower is used during the day, operating at 50,000 watts and providing at least secondary coverage from the outer southern suburbs of Atlanta to the suburbs of Albany. At night, the signal is cut back to 10,000 watts, and power is fed to all five towers in a directional pattern to protect clear-channel XEW in Mexico City, concentrating the signal in central Georgia.
