n. Computer Science (Abbr. BCD)
A code in which a string of four binary digits represents a decimal numb
To encode a decimal number using the common BCD encoding, each decimal digit is stored in a 4-bit nibble:
Decimal: 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
BCD: 0000 0001 0010 0011 0100 0101 0110 0111 1000 1001
Thus, the BCD encoding for the number 127 would be:
0001 0010 0111
Whereas the pure binary number would be:
Since most computers store data in 8-bit bytes, there are two common ways of storing 4-bit BCD digits in those bytes:
each digit is stored in one nibble of a byte, with the other nibble being set to all zeros, all ones (as in the EBCDIC code), or to 0011 (as in the ASCII code)
two digits are stored in each byte.
Unlike binary-encoded numbers, BCD-encoded numbers can easily be displayed by mapping each of the nibbles to a different character. Converting a binary-encoded number to decimal for display is much harder, as this generally involves integer multiplication or divide operations. BCD also avoids problems where fractions that can be represented exactly in decimal cannot be represented in binary (e.g., one-tenth).
n. Computer Science
A bit added to a binary code that indicates parity and is used to check the integrity of data.
A parity bit is a bit that is added to ensure that the number of bits with the value one in a set of bits is even or odd. Parity bits are used as the simplest form of error detecting code.
There are two variants of parity bits: even parity bit and odd parity bit. When using even parity, the parity bit is set to 1 if the number of ones in a given set of bits (not including the parity bit) is odd, making the entire set of bits (including the parity bit) even. When using odd parity, the parity bit is set to 1 if the number of ones in a given set of bits (not including the parity bit) is even, making the entire set of bits (including the parity bit) odd. In other words, an even parity bit will be set to "1" if the number of 1's + 1 is even, and an odd parity bit will be set to "1" if the number of 1's +1 is odd.
Even parity is a special case of a cyclic redundancy check (CRC), where the 1-bit CRC is generated by the polynomial x+1.
If the parity bit is present but not used, it may be referred to as mark parity (when the parity bit is always 1) or space parity (the bit is always 0).

- This unit regarded as a source of nuclear energy.

as a matter of fact
In fact; actually.
for that matter
So far as that is concerned; as for that.
Regardless of: "Yet there isn't a train I wouldn't take,/No matter where it's going" (Edna St. Vincent Millay).
[Middle English, from Old French matere, from Latin māteria, wood, timber, matter, from māter, mother (because the woody part was seen as the source of growth).]
Organized array of all the chemical elements in approximately increasing order of their atomic weight. The elements show a periodic recurrence of certain properties, a characteristic that was first discovered in 1869 by Dmitry I. Mendeleyev. Those in the same column (group) of the table as usually arranged have similar properties. In the 20th century, when the structure of atoms was understood, the table was seen to precisely reflect increasing order of atomic number. Members of the same group in the table have the same number of electrons in the outermost shells of their atoms and form bonds of the same type, usually with the same valence; the noble gases, with full outer shells, generally do not form bonds. The periodic table has thus greatly deepened understanding of bonding and chemical behaviour. It also allowed the prediction of new elements, many of which were later discovered or synthesized.Logical Scenario
All matter (i.e. solid, liquid or gas) within our solar system or galaxy is composed of atoms, molecules, chemical compounds or elements.
Substitute the positive or negative ions with the binary symbols 0 or 1.
Combine the binary symbols into a BCD string to identify a form of matter.
Example: ---- ++++ ----+ -+-+
Substitute each + symbol with 0 and each - symbol with 1
Example: 1111 0000 1110 1010
Presume the human mind to serve as a computer to analyze matter and calibrate a physical reaction (i.e. human behavior).
Queue bit represents the leading bit to the far right. This bit determines whether the physical reaction will be positive or negative.
Each person is an individual with his or her unique personality. He or she may react differently when prompted by the queue bit.
Human brain has stored a personal profile of our likes or dislikes. It has assigned a positive charge to the things we like and a negative charge to the things we dislike.
Our mind is able to apply even or odd parity to detect when an error of the incoming stimulus doesn't match up with our personal profile.
When no error has been detected the queue bit will generate a positive opcode to signal green light go!
When an error has been detected the queue bit will generate a negative opcode to signal yellow light caution or red light stop!
Negative queue bit will stimulate our amygdala and activate our hypothalamus to dispense neuropetides (i.e. dopamine, endorphins, enkephalin etc.) into our bloodstream.
Queue Virus (QV) is designed to lock our alarm system to stay turned on. The side effects from the natural chemicals in our bloodstream foster the human mind to hallucinate. As a result, we may exhibit aberrant or bizarre behaviors.
Moral of my story is: Medical science has omitted discovery of QV and the repercussion has led society to blame and/or punish persons for exhibiting antisocial behaviors that have been outlawed by lawmakers.Rule 36 Requests for Admission

Queue Virus (QV) is my discovery based upon my cross training in neurophysiology and computer technology.
Concept is that our physical reactions (either positive or negative) to stimuli are placed in queue ready for output immediately or later.
My You Tube groups seek to train persons in chemistry and/or psychology. The more you learn the better you may be able to understand.
Notice how your computer (if you own one) may be operating perfectly. Suddenly, it contracts a virus and goes haywire.
Human brain is a anatomical computer. It is subject to contract a virus same as your personal computer.
How would you feel if one day your mind were to snap and you did something bizarre to destroy your own life and/or the lives of others?
Of course you would expect forgiveness due to our human frailty to breakdown! God expects for us to renew our mind-set from the world.

The term "emotional disorders" is not a fully accurate medical term, but is commonly used in ordinary context to refer to those psychological disorders that appear to affect the emotions (e.g. anxiety disorders or depressive disorders). More strictly correct disease categories are psychological disorders, psychiatric disorders, anxiety disorders, depressive disorders, behavioral disorders.
