Professional wrestling has accrued a considerable nomenclature through its long existence. Much of it stems from the industry's origins in the days of carnivals and circuses, and the slang itself is often referred to as "carny talk." In the past, wrestlers used such terms in the presence of fans so as not to reveal the worked nature of the business. In recent years, widespread discussion on the Internet has popularized these terms. Many of the terms refer to the financial aspects of pro wrestling in addition to performance-related terms.
In physics, a force is said to do work if, when acting on a body, there is a displacement of the point of application in the direction of the force. For example, when a ball is held above the ground and then dropped, the work done on the ball as it falls is equal to the weight of the ball (a force) multiplied by the distance to the ground (a displacement).
The term work was introduced in 1826 by the French mathematician Gaspard-Gustave Coriolis as "weight lifted through a height", which is based on the use of early steam engines to lift buckets of water out of flooded ore mines. The SI unit of work is the newton-metre or joule (J).
The SI unit of work is the joule (J), which is defined as the work expended by a force of one newton through a distance of one metre.
The dimensionally equivalent newton-metre (N⋅m) is sometimes used as the measuring unit for work, but this can be confused with the unit newton-metre, which is the measurement unit of torque. Usage of N⋅m is discouraged by the SI authority, since it can lead to confusion as to whether the quantity expressed in newton metres is a torque measurement, or a measurement of energy.
Electrical work is the work done on a charged particle by an electric field. The equation for 'electrical' work is equivalent to that of 'mechanical' work:
The electrical work per unit of charge, when moving a negligible test charge between two points, is defined as the voltage between those points.
Particles that are free to move, if positively charged, normally tend towards regions of lower voltage (net negative charge), while if negatively charged they tend to shift towards regions of higher voltage (net positive charge).
However, any movement of a positive charge into a region of higher voltage requires external work to be done against the field of the electric force, work equal to that electric field would do in moving that positive charge the same distance in the opposite direction. Similarly, it requires positive external work to transfer a negatively charged particle from a region of higher voltage to a region of lower voltage.
The electric force is a conservative force: work done by a static electric field is independent of the path taken by the charge. There is no change in the voltage (electric potential) around any closed path; when returning to the starting point in a closed path, the net of the external work done is zero. The same holds for electric fields.
In the 1990s Jerritt Canyon moved into underground mining, with portals leading into the underground workings from the open pits ... During a visit to Jerritt Canyon in October, work was progressing on reopening two past producing underground mines before the end of the year – West Gen and Saval II ... Two big projects were at the roaster and the refinery.
Gavin Newsom’s proposal to penalize excessive oil refinery profits is a relatively straightforward effort to prevent price gouging that reached new heights this year as gas prices in the state spiked to more than $6.40 a gallon ...The details of Newsom’s proposal are still being worked out, but it’s essentially a cap on excessive oil refinery profits.
The stable output at Gazprom Neft, which controls Russia's largest oil refinery in the western Siberian city of Omsk, shows the resilience of the Russian oil industry despite the harshest Western sanctions in recent history ... According to Vedernikov, the Omsk refinery is also working on production of the needle coke.
OMSK, Russia (Reuters) – Gazprom Neft, the oil arm of Russian gas giant Gazprom, plans to keep its oil refining steady next year, at around 41 million tonnes, a company manager said, as the firm goes ahead with a modernisation of its ageing refineries ... According to Vedernikov, the Omsk refinery is also working on production of the needle coke.
The Russian energy major says it lost $1.6 billion after Berlin took control of its refineries ...German officials claimed that the step was taken to keep three Rosneft refineries operational after critical service providers, insurers and banks allegedly refused to work with the sanctioned Russian company.
But National Party energy and resources spokesperson Stuart Smith said the government should have moved quicker, given they knew onshore storage would not be enough for such an event after the closure of the country's only oil refinery based at Marsden Point... "That's the way commerce works.
These units will have needed to build up operational inventories prior to starting, and given that refineries may have up to three weeks of crude as a working stockpile it suggests that as much as 15 million barrels of additional crude has been imported in recent months.
Lower crude imports via the Druzhba oil pipeline from Russia, extended maintenance work at oil group MOL's Danube refinery and surging fuel demand forced Orban to abandon the year-long cap just before the start of the holiday season. Orban, a vocal critic of 'Brussels bureaucrats', blamed the fiasco on EU sanctions on Russian crude ... .
