WCM

WCM may stand for:

John Fitzpatrick (racing driver) - World of Endurance Racing

For 1977, Fitzpatrick was back at Kremer Racing, where in five WCM races, he co-drove with Wollek to three podium finishes, reaching the top at Hockenheim. But John's main drive for ’77 was back to Touring Cars. He had rejoined Broadspeed, to race the Jaguar XJ12C, however the racing programme got off on the wrong foot because British Leyland would not finalise the decision whether or not to continue with the programme following their debut in 1976. This mean Ralph Broad and Broadspeed guys did not know whether to get on with their development programme. Once Leyland gave the go ahead, valuable time had been lost. Fitzpatrick found himself partnering Tim Schenken, together they raced eight times for Jaguar, they only finished once, in the Grand Prix Brno, held on the old Masaryk Circuit, albeit in 16th place following an exploding tyre.

World Championship Motorsports - Competition history

In, Chris Burns and José David de Gea made up the team's rider line-up. Red Bull left the team to sponsor KTM in the 125cc World Championship. WCM joined forces with Harris Performance Products and was renamed to Harris WCM. Harris WCM built their own 4-stroke MotoGP racer with an engine based on the Yamaha YZF-R1 engine. The FIM however found that the motorcycle was not in conformity with the championship technical regulations and the team was disqualified. The team appealed but the International Disciplinary Court turned the appeal down. The team took their case to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (the final stage in the appeal process) but the court again ruled in FIM's favour. Following the courts decision the team entered the British, German and the Czech Republic Grand Prix using 1993 2-stroke 500cc Yamaha-engined motorcycles while they continued to develop the 4-stroke machine. The races where WCM ran the 2-stroke 500cc Yamaha motorcycles marked the last starts of the 2-stroke 500cc bikes in MotoGP. The Harris WCM motorcycle made its debut at the Portuguese Grand Prix.

Enterprise content management - Characteristics

ECM thus is a collection of infrastructure components that fit into a multi-layer model and include all document related technologies (DRT) for handling, delivering, and managing structured data and unstructured information jointly. As such, enterprise content management is one of the necessary basic components of the overarching e-business application area. ECM also sets out to manage all the information of a WCM and covers archiving needs as a universal repository.

Indian locomotive class WCAM 3

The WCAM-3 locomotives were developed after Central Railways faced a massive locomotive crisis in the 1990s. During the period, many of the WCM locomotives, which began to show their age, suffered several failures. As a result, CR had a tough time in maintaining train schedules, which led to the demand for a locomotive similar to the WCAM-2/2P, which was already successful in the Western Railways. Thus the WCAM-3 was introduced along with the WCAG-1, with more power and traction.

Michel Fabrizio - Early years

In 2004 he made his first appearance in MotoGP, with the WCM team, failing to complete the season and finishing the season 22nd cc-gp.htm.

Martino Finotto - Return to the ETCC

After taking pole position for the 1979 6 Ore di Mugello in the 935, Facetti lead the race until a collision and he wound up in third at the end. After this WCM outing, Finotto returned to ETCC at Vallelunga. After 300 of the 500 km, Facetti/Finotto were amongst the leading BMWs, when Finotto pitted with boiling radiator; only moments later Eddy Joosen pitted with exactly the same problem. Repairs were made and both BMWs were back at full pace. At the end of 500 km, Facetti/Finotto were only 9 seconds behind the winners Bruno Giacomelli/Grano/Joosen. The next ETCC race at Mugello, once again was a battle between the BMWs. Although the result was the same as before the margin of victory was down in just 2.6 seconds.

Pragati Express - Traction

When the train was introduced, it was hauled by WCM 2/3/5 DC locomotives as the route between Mumbai and Pune was under 1500 V DC. From the mid 1990s till present, it is currently hauled end to end by a WCAM 3 or WCAM 2 locomotive of the Kalyan (KYN) shed. Post 2014, after conversion of DC to AC on Central Line, it has been hauled occasionally by Bhusaval based WAP 4/WAM-4 or Ajni based WAP 7.

Wolfson Centre for Magnetics - Present and future

Cardiff University plans a further major expansion of the WCM to increase the number of faculty working in magnetics and to continue the improvement of the existing research facilities. The expansion will focus on aspects of magnetics related to energy, healthcare, nanoscale magnetics, sensors. These include: bulk hard magnetic materials, high frequency materials, low-dimensional materials (micro and nano), nanoscale magnetic structures, magnetic non-destructive evaluation methods, and biomedical applications of magnetics.

Avadi railway station - History

The Electrification preliminaries such as poles, etc., were observed on the Railway Lines passing through Avadi Railway Station as early as 1977. The first B.G Electric EMUs were first introduced on the Madras Central Gummidipoondi section by 1979 and in the next phase on the Madras Central- Tiruvallur section around 1980 as stated above. From around 1971 to 1980, there these beastly WP Steam Locomotives that were doing honours for the Suburban trains going up to Tiruvallur and Gumidipoondi. The WDS category Shuttle Diesel were seen pulling the Pattabiram Military Siding Trains going up to E Depot in the Avadi Air Force Station Cantonment Area. It helped identifying the Trains. As for the Express Trains passing through Avadi, those were Diesel Electrics. In the late sixties and early seventies, it was probably the Baldwin Class WP Steam Locos that were hauling trains such as Dadar Express and Bombay Mail from Kalyan taking over the duties from the mighty WCM DC Electrics operating on the Bombay-Kalyan Route.

World Championship Motorsports - Competition history

Other notable WCM riders were John Hopkins, Noriyuki Haga, Alex Hofmann, and Ralf Waldmann.

World Championship Motorsports - Competition history

Halfway through the season WCM announced that it joined forces with Blata to run a V6 machine for. The team was called Blata WCM and James Ellison and Franco Battaini were the team riders. The new motorcycle was not ready at the start of the season and the team continued using their Harris WCM motorcycle. The new V6 motorcycle was due to make its debut at Czech Republic Grand Prix but it was not ready. Blata said that the bike would be completed, but the motorcycle never raced.

West Coast Magazine

WCM also produced many writers' events such as readings and talks – mainly in pubs and other public places – and produced all but one of the literary events for Glasgow's City of Culture festival in 1990.

James Ellison (motorcyclist) - British Superbike Championship 2004

Towards the end of 2004, Ellison was asked to race for the WCM MotoGP team after their regular rider, Chris Burns, was injured. He finished 13th at Qatar, and the team signed him for the full 2005 season.

Dallas Chess Club

DCC utilizes volunteers for club activities. Two notable volunteer TD's are Luis Salinas and Robert Jones. DCC hosted Robert Smeltzer (1930–2010), who set the world record in 1995 for playing the most rated chess games in a single year, for a total of 2266. Smeltzer was subsequently featured on the cover of the official USCF monthly magazine, Chess Life. In addition, the DCC hosts a number of adolescents who are ranked among the top 10 in the world for their age, this includes CM Tommy He, Jonathan Chiang, WCM Sarah Chiang, Jeffery Xiong, Andy Shao, FM Darwin Yang, Jarod Pamatmat, and a number of others. In 2007, Sarah Chiang received the silver medal at the World Youth Chess Championship held in Turkey. In 2008, Darwin Yang was the nation's top 11-year-old. In 2009, more than a dozen of the USCF's 58-member World Youth team were also members of the DCC. Also in 2008, the DCC hosted the Girls National Championships, in conjunction with the Kasparov Chess Foundation. Furthermore, the DCC hosts the annual state scholastic tournament for elementary, high-school, and college students.

Nalin de Silva - Western Cultural Dominance

Prof. De Silva has also been a vocal opponent of what he calls western cultural dominance which he claims is in its final phase. The western Christian modernity (WCM) is in the last phase of its hegemony and is acting like an insane person. It has no respect for the sovereignty of the other countries as has been exemplified from invasions, killings and supporting so called rebel groups in the countries in Asia and Africa. The USA that became the leader of WCM after the so called second world war is trying desperately to hold to the hegemony of WCM. After more than five hundred years of world domination WCM will have to leave the planet without making the people suffer more and more.

Wisden Cricket Monthly

The driving force behind the creation of WCM was its first editor, David Frith, formerly an editor of its rival, The Cricketer. At first, it operated under the Wisden name using licence from John Wisden & Co. Wisden later bought a controlling interest.

OpenText - Content authoring

Red dots on the authoring interface indicated sections of editable content for each web page, hence the name RedDot for the product. This feature was popular with customers and won awards in 2001 for its usability. By 2006 RedDot was one of the few WCM vendors that continued to develop their own content authoring interface. Most other WCM vendors had moved to open source alternatives, or had licensed an online rich-text editor from commercial vendors such as Ephox or Ektron. In response to customer attempts to work around the limitations of the RedDot editor by installing other editors RedDot developed an integration layer to support CKeditor and Ephox EditLive! as alternative editors. In 2009 RedDot (now the OpenText Web Solutions Group) made the Telerik RadEditor available alongside the existing RedDot editor for CMS 9.

Wisden Cricket Monthly

WCM has a 10-strong editorial board comprising Wisden editor Lawrence Booth, Wisden India editor Suresh Menon, Isa Guha, David Lloyd, Paul Allott, Alison Mitchell, Elizabeth Ammon, Mark Butcher, Christian Ryan and Daniel Norcross.

Wolfson Centre for Magnetics - History

WCM hosted the Second Soft Magnetic Materials Conference (SMM2) in 1975 and the Centre's name was changed to the Wolfson Centre for Magnetics Technology reflecting its broader range of expertise and activities. The Wolfson Centre hosted SMM5 in 1985 and research carried out at the Centre became commercialised with the establishment of one of the University's first spin out companies, MR Sensors Ltd., to manufacture thin film sensors in Cardiff.
