Net reproduction rate: The net reproduction rate (NRR) is the average number of daughters that would be born to a woman (or a group of women) if she passed through her lifetime conforming to the age-specific fertility and mortality rates of a given year. This rate is similar to the gross reproduction rate but takes into account that some women will die before completing their childbearing years. An NRR of one means that each generation of mothers is having exactly enough daughters to replace itself in the population.[1] See also total fertility rate and replacement-level fertility.

They are then loaded onto the M/V Delta Mariner, a roll-on/roll-off cargo vessel, and shipped to either launch pad. There, they are offloaded and rolled into a Horizontal Integration Facility (HIF), where they are mated with the second stages, which were shipped separately to the pad on the Delta Mariner. Also, in the HIF, the three CBCs of Heavy variant are mated to each other.

Kalos inscription: Some kalos inscriptions are associated with certain vase painters and potters; the Antimenes Painter is named after the kalos inscription for Antimenes on his pots. It is thought that since the names referred to were largely aristocratic citizens and that certain pottery workshops are associated with some kalos recipients (i.e. the Leagros Group named after the youth Leagros) they may have been the expression of a cult of celebrity or part of a concerted effort by the youths' families to increase their sons' public standing. Another possibility is that they were declarations of love on the part of the author for the young man in question, part of the pederastic courtships which were customary in ancient Greece at the time.
Bakutis Coast: Bakutis Coast (74°45′S, 120°0′W) is that part of the coast of Marie Byrd Land, West Antarctica, extending from a point opposite eastern Dean Island, at 74°42′S, 127°05′W, to Cape Herlacher, or between Hobbs Coast in the west and Walgreen Coast in the east. It stretches between 127°35'W and 114°12'W. The coast in this area is bounded by several large ice-covered islands and the very extensive Getz Ice Shelf. This coast was sighted by members of the US Antarctic Service (USAS), 1939-41, and was charted in part from air photos taken by USN Operation Highjump, 1946-47, both expeditions led by Admiral R.E. Byrd. The United States Geological Survey (USGS) completely mapped the coast from ground surveys and U.S. Navy air photos, 1959-66.
