Stet is an obelism, used by proofreaders and editors to instruct the typesetter or writer to disregard a change the editor or proofreader had previously marked. It is a form of the Latin verb sto, stare, steti, statum,[1]. This usage of the verb, known as the "jussive subjunctive",[2] derives from the active-voiced third-person subjunctive singular present and is typically translated as "Let it stand"[3] or "As you were".

Conventionally, the content that included the edit to be disregarded was underlined using dashes or dots and stet written and circled above or beside it.[3] Alternatively, a circled tick or checkmark could be placed beside the content in a margin.[4]

Stet is sometimes also used imperatively, as in, for example, "Stet that colon",[3] or, if left on a board that might otherwise be cleaned, "Do not erase".

It played a big role internationally especially in the standardization of protocols and technologies in telecommunication: perhaps the most widely well known is the standardization of mp3. It was active from 1964 to 2001, initially as a part of the Istituto per la Ricostruzione Industriale-STET – Società Finanziaria Telefonica group, the major conglomerate of Italian public Industries in the 1960s and 1970s; it later became part of Telecom Italia Group.

Damned If You Do (album)

Damned If You Do is the twelfth studio album by American heavy metal band Metal Church, which was released on December 7, 2018 through Rat Pak Records.

Doug Blair

Douglas Blair Lucek, better known asDoug Blair (born February 11, 1963) is a heavy metal guitarist and member of W.A.S.P.. Doug's early development as a musician took place in his home state of Connecticut. His focus on technical ability with the guitar quickly saw him gaining a reputation locally with his early band, Run 21. This band played small club dates in the Tri-State area (NY,NJ,CT) and recorded some original material during that time. One of the songs, "Baby It's Your Face" was recorded at Presence Studios in Weston, Connecticut and released on the Metalstorm compilation produced by Jamie Bircumshaw and Tom Boyd in 1985. This early Doug Blair band, Run 21 also included Stet Howland on drums who would later join W.A.S.P. ( as would Blair). Run 21 was especially known for its outlandish show (compared to other Connecticut acts) that would see Blair jumping up on the bar and playing while running in between glasses and bottles. The act had an element of comedy with drummer Stet Howland's dialogue with the audience. This early "over the top" style of performance were precursors to what Blair and Howland would be doing with the internationally known W.A.S.P.

He initially joined W.A.S.P. for a short time in 1992. During his time Blair authored a guitar column for Mixx Magazine (now known as Intermixx Webzine) where he gave instruction and advice on the general subject of guitar playing and guitar instruments which he was known to design. He was also a quick replacement on W.A.S.P.'s Unholy Terror Tour in 2001 on two festival gigs when Chris Holmes left the band. In 2006 he was hired by W.A.S.P. for the third time.His 'other' current band is Signal2Noise with percussionist/vocalist John Anthony. Their debut album, "Fighting Mental Illness", has 7 songs; Generica, Contrast, Hear, Disown, Out, Corner, and a bonus acoustic version of Wall.From time to time, he also appears as a guest musician at gigs of other artists such as Barbe-Q-Barbies.In May 2016, he announced an upcoming collaboration with American alternative metal vocalist and musician Melissa VanFleet. In October 2017, VanFleet released "Raven," a single featuring Blair on lead guitar.Blair is known for inventing the innovative instrument the "GuitarCross" which blend five guitar strings with three bass strings (guitar strings sent to one amplifier, bass strings to another) to make a unique sound. He uses this invention in s2n and also uses a unique 12-string acoustic named "Asia."

Metal Church

Metal Church is an American heavy metal band. They originally formed in San Francisco, California in 1980 before relocating to Aberdeen, Washington the following year and briefly using the name Shrapnel. Their self titled debut album was released in 1984, and their latest, Damned If You Do, was released on December 7, 2018.Metal Church is credited as a formative influence on the thrash metal subgenre, melding the aesthetics of the new wave of British heavy metal and American hard rock with "incredibly tight musicianship" and "piercingly screeched" vocals. They are also known for their association with the 1980s and early 1990s Seattle hard rock and heavy metal scene, which spawned bands such as Mother Love Bone, Alice in Chains, Soundgarden, Queensrÿche, Fifth Angel, TKO, Culprit, Rail, Sanctuary, Forced Entry and Q5. The band's early lyrical topics such as conflict and paranoia later expanded into philosophical and social commentary.

Founding guitarist Kurdt Vanderhoof remained the group's sole consistent creative force throughout its career, despite reducing his role strictly to composition in 1986 after tiring of performing. Vanderhoof, vocalist David Wayne, guitarist Craig Wells, bassist Duke Erickson, and drummer Kirk Arrington composed the classic Metal Church lineup featured on its first two records, while vocalist Mike Howe and guitarist John Marshall later contributed to the group's sound. It was during this period that Metal Church had achieved mainstream popularity, with two of their albums—The Dark (1986) and Blessing in Disguise (1989)—entering the Top 100 on the Billboard 200 chart. Their 1991 album The Human Factor and its 1993 follow-up Hanging in the Balance also received critical praise, but did not match the success of the group's 1980s material.

After their first break up in 1995, Metal Church reformed in 1998 with most of their classic lineup, including Vanderhoof's return to performance, resulting in the Masterpeace album. They endured numerous lineup changes thereafter, releasing three further studio albums while fronted by Ronny Munroe before disbanding once again in July 2009. The group reunited for the second time in October 2012, and released their tenth studio album Generation Nothing a year later. Following Munroe's departure in the fall of 2014, Howe rejoined Metal Church in April 2015 at Vanderhoof's request, and recorded their eleventh studio album XI (2016). Another lineup change took place in March 2017 when longtime drummer Jeff Plate left Metal Church and was subsequently replaced by former W.A.S.P. drummer Stet Howland.

Papua New Guinea

Papua New Guinea (PNG; UK: , US: ; Tok Pisin: Papua Niugini; Hiri Motu: Papua Niu Gini), officially the Independent State of Papua New Guinea, is an Oceanian country that occupies the eastern half of the island of New Guinea and its offshore islands in Melanesia, a region of the southwestern Pacific Ocean north of Australia. Its capital, located along its southeastern coast, is Port Moresby. The western half of New Guinea forms the Indonesian provinces of Papua and West Papua.

At the national level, after being ruled by three external powers since 1884, Papua New Guinea established its sovereignty in 1975. This followed nearly 60 years of Australian administration, which started during World War I. It became an independent Commonwealth realm in 1975 with Queen Elizabeth II as its head of state and became a member of the Commonwealth of Nations in its own right.

Papua New Guinea is one of the most culturally diverse countries in the world. It is also one of the most rural, as only 18 per cent of its people live in urban centres. There are 852 known languages in the country, of which 12 now have no known living speakers. Most of the population of more than 8 million people lives in customary communities, which are as diverse as the languages. The country is one of the world's least explored, culturally and geographically. It is known to have numerous groups of uncontacted peoples, and researchers believe there are many undiscovered species of plants and animals in the interior.Papua New Guinea is classified as a developing economy by the International Monetary Fund. Strong growth in Papua New Guinea's mining and resource sector led to the country becoming the sixth-fastest-growing economy in the world in 2011. Growth was expected to slow once major resource projects came on line in 2015. Mining remains a major economic factor, however. Local and national governments are discussing the potential of resuming mining operations at the Panguna mine in Bougainville Province, which has been closed since the civil war in the 1980s–1990s. Nearly 40 per cent of the population lives a self-sustainable natural lifestyle with no access to global capital.Most of the people still live in strong traditional social groups based on farming. Their social lives combine traditional religion with modern practices, including primary education. These societies and clans are explicitly acknowledged by the Papua New Guinea Constitution, which expresses the wish for "traditional villages and communities to remain as viable units of Papua New Guinean society" and protects their continuing importance to local and national community life. The nation is an observer state in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations or ASEAN since 1976, and has already filed its application for full membership status. It is a full member of the Pacific Islands Forum (formerly South Pacific Forum) and the Commonwealth of Nations.

STET (fanzine)

STET is a science fiction fanzine, which has been published intermittently from Wheeling, Illinois by the married couple Leah and Dick Smith since the early 1990s. It was nominated for the Hugo Award in 1993, 1994 and 2001.Notable for the mimeograph reproduction and long lettercol of most issues, STET achieved its highest acclaim for the 2000 issue, a parody of The Old Farmer's Almanac full of extensive reference material on science fiction fandom.The fanzine was named partly because Leah Zeldes Smith, a journalist, author and editor by trade, had an abiding acquaintance with the proofreader's term stet; partly in affectionate tribute to historic, typographically titled fanzines such as Hyphen and Slant; and partly in punning reference to the GeSTETner machines most issues were printed on.

STET (text editor)

The STET text editor (the 'STructured Editing Tool') may have been the first folding editor; its first version was written in 1977 by Mike Cowlishaw. The editor runs on the IBM VM/CMS operating system.

STET was written to explore an approach to text editing that followed the principles of Structured programming. It allows programs and documentation to be written 'top-down', with blocks of code or text kept to a limited size (usually less than a page).

This was "a first attempt to take the structure out of the domain of languages, and into the domain of editors. In addition to conventional editing facilities, STET gives the user a third dimension: a tree structure that may be traversed using Program Function Keys much as scrolling is normally implemented"

Stet, Missouri

Stet, Missouri, United States, is an unincorporated community on the Ray/Carroll County line. It is located approximately fourteen miles northwest of Carrollton at the intersection of Missouri Supplemental Routes K and JJ.

A post office called Stet was established in 1890, and remained in operation until 1973. That same year, the rural route was consolidated with Norborne but the building stayed open as a contract office until 2011. The origin of the name "Stet" is obscure. The meaning of Stet in Latin is "let it stand."

The community patrons took special pride in their school, which thrived for many years in a rural surrounding. In the early 20th century, several of the one-room schoolhouses in eastern Ray and western Carroll counties were consolidated into one larger school district, appropriately named Stet. The K-12 school of the cardinals opened in 1917 and just recently closed in 2012.

Stet was named by Ed Mansur, a Stet storekeeper, in the late 1800s. Once a thriving community that boasted of two general stores, a blacksmith shop and a variety of other businesses, today Stet still remains with a tire and welding shop, a telephone exchange building (Green Hills), a Pioneer Seed salesman, Norris Quarries, and a volunteer fire department (opened in 1964) which just recently added a kitchen addition to their current structure. Each summer, the fire team members hold an ice cream social at the station as a fundraiser event.

The area also has several churches of worship scattered throughout the countryside. They include: Bethany Church of the Brethren; New Hope United Methodist; Mt. Pleasant Baptist; and Union Baptist Church.
