Release (film) - Release

Release was released in 2010 and selected to play at LGBT film festivals worldwide including: Sydney Mardi Gras, Melbourne Queer Film festival, Vertzaubert Queer Film Festival, Miami Gay and Lesbian Film Festival and Philadelphia Q Fest.

Release aid - Release mechanisms

Caliper style releases are most popular with the wrist trigger style of releases, due to the fact that the trigger mechanism near the head of the release makes it simple to actuate the caliper open and closed in an efficient manner. With only one or a few moving parts, this release is simple and dependable.

Release consistency - Lock release

A lock release can be considered as a type of release synchronization. Assume a loop operation is concerned as the code shown to the right. Two threads intend to enter a critical section and read the most recent value of a, then exit the critical section. The code shows that thread 0 first acquires the lock and enters the critical section. In order to execute correctly, P1 must read the latest value of ‘a’ written by P0. In that case, only one thread can be in the critical section at a time. Therefore, the synchronization itself has ensured that the successful lock acquisition at P1 occurs after lock release by P0. Besides, the S2 -> S3 ordering has to be ensured, since the P0 must propagate the new value of ‘a’ to P1. For the same reason, S5 must occur after S4.

Release aid - Release mechanisms

Thumb switch release aids are the most complicated, with the most moving parts of the three most common releases. They work on the depression of a thumb switch that is mounted to a T-handle's style of release. The attraction to these release aids are that they are a good midpoint between a caliper and back tension style of release aids, making the transition from one to the other a little smoother over a longer period of time.

Release aid - Release mechanisms

Back tension release aids are the simplest mechanically, with only one moving part. However, as a result of this, they are the hardest style of release to learn how to use. The aid relies on the muscle tension through the forearms and back in order to release the latch at the end of the T-handle's leg. These releases are known for their accuracy and dependability on the tournament archery scene. They depend on the fulcrum of a lever over a half-moon-shaped piece of metal in order for the release to go off.

Release aid - Release styles

T-handled releases are hand-held releases that rely on the strength of one's fingers. The release is held in the fist, with the mechanism usually poking out between index and middle finger. A handled release uses one of two different styles of a mechanism either by using a back tension or a thumb switch. These styles of releases are most popular with tournament archers and sometimes in tree stands.

Release liner - Release agents

Commonly used release agents for release liner can be crosslinkable silicone, other coatings, and materials that have a low surface energy.

Release aid - Release attachment

Under nock is when one directly attaches the release to the bowstring under the bottom of the nock of the arrow. This is popular with older archers who have not yet adopted the D loop. This style of attachment puts the most amount of stress not only on the bow but also on the arrow itself on top on the release mechanism.

Release aid - Release attachment

A D loop is the most popular way of attaching your release to the bowstring because it causes the least amount of torque on the bowstring itself. It consists of a small-diameter piece of nylon cord tied to the string of the bow, using two reverse facing half hitch knots. It is named for the resulting "D" shape.

Release print - Release print stocks

The person operating the printer on which the release print is struck must take several factors into consideration in order to achieve accurate color. These include the stock manufacturer, the color temperature of the bulbs in the printer, and the various color filters which may have been introduced during initial filming or subsequent generation of duplicates.

Release print - Release print stocks

As of March 2015, Eastman Kodak is the only remaining manufacturer of colour release print stock in the world. Along with Kodak, ORWO of Germany also sells black-and-white print stock. Other manufacturers, principally DuPont of the United States, Fujifilm of Japan (the penultimate company to discontinue colour print stock ), Agfa-Gevaert of Germany, Ilford of the United Kingdom and Tasma of the Soviet Union competed with Kodak in the print stock market throughout most of the twentieth century.

Acoustic release - The release mechanism

A central element of any acoustic release is its release mechanism. The function of the release mechanism is to open a gate to release an anchor line and attached anchor weight, which allows the now buoyant assembly to travel to the surface. There are also variations of this use, where a light-load release sets free a flotation sphere, which travels to the surface trailing a strong tether that remains attached to the instrument. The sphere is recovered and the heavy instrument is then hauled aboard using a winch.

Acoustic release - The release mechanism

The design goal for release mechanisms is maximum reliability while offering an appropriate load rating. Release mechanisms can fail due to bio-fouling or corrosion that can impair the motion of its components, failure modes that designers try to counter by minimizing the count of moving parts subject to seizing or applying high torque to overcome resistance. But failures also occur due to factors of use and environment such as rigging and ocean currents or surge that can result in an entanglement of the device.

Acoustic release - The release mechanism

The general function of a release mechanism is shown in figure 2, using the example of a fusible link release, a patented mechanism. Prior to release, the lever (A) is held in the closed position by a fusible wire (B). To trigger the release, a jolt of electricity of approx. 14 kW is passed through the fusible wire, causing it to melt or evaporate in a matter of a few milliseconds. The lever is now free to open (by the force of the instrument flotation), releasing the anchor or other release line (C).

Software release life cycle - Release

Once released, the software is generally known as a "stable release". The formal term often depends on the method of release: physical media, online release or a web application.

Limited theatrical release - Platform release

In the early stages of a platform release, the key metric is the per-theater average gross, not the total box office gross. Arthouse and independent films that garner high per-theater averages are seen as likely candidates for a successful wider release. A distributor using this release strategy must take care not to expand too quickly in the early stages to prevent the (limited) audience from being spread too thin, which would reduce the per-theater average and so cause the film to appear weaker.

Work release - Pros of work release

Work release programs have the ability to have a positive impact on inmates and their ability to gain employment after they are released. Also, inmates who participate in work release programs are able to acquire jobs nearly twice as fast when compared to inmates who do not participate. Studies have shown that inmates who took part in a work release program received higher pay in their jobs after being released. Work release programs have also been shown to lower the recidivism rates among prisons.

Limited theatrical release - Platform release

A platform release is a type of limited release in which a film opens in fewer theaters (typically 599 or fewer) than a wide release. If the film receives positive word of mouth, it is gradually expanded to more theaters, as the marketing campaign gains momentum. A successful film released in this manner has even the possibility of expanding into a wide release.

Ecological release - Human causes ecological release

Ecological Release by human means, intentional or unintentional, has had drastic effects on ecosystems worldwide. The most extreme examples of Invasive Species include: Cane Toads in Australia, Kudzu in the Southeast United States, or Beavers in Tierra Del Fuego. But ‘’ecological release’’ can also be more subtle, less drastic and easily overlooked such as Mustangs and Dandelions in North America, Musk Oxen in Svalbard, Dromedaries in Australia, or Peaches in Georgia

Release management - Relationship with Enterprise Release Management

While Release Management focuses on the transitions from development to testing and release for a single project or a collection of related projects, Enterprise Release Management (ERM) is focused on the coordination of individual releases within a larger organization. An organization with multiple application development groups may require a highly orchestrated series of releases over multiple months or years to implement a large-scale system. ERM involves the coordinated effort of multiple release managers to synchronize releases in the context of an IT portfolio.
