The ISO 4217 currency code for Canada Dollar.

CAD

ISO 4217 code for the Canadian dollar. The dollar traces its antecedents to the dollar of the Province of Canada, which was issued in 1858 and gradually adopted by the territories of British North America as they formed modern Canada over the course of the next century. The Canadian dollar was pegged to the United States dollar at various values, often at par, until 1950. The currency began to float that year, though it briefly reverted to the U.S. dollar peg between 1962 and 1970.

ISCSI, like standard SCSI, is a block-based storage protocol layered underneath the file system.
Longer focal lengths compress information, while wide-angle lenses can create a richly layered sense of depth.
An avalanche happens when the force of gravity (pull toward Earth's center) is stronger than the forces that cement snow particles together between a slab and a weak layer. Once weather conditions set up weak layers in a snowpack, all it takes to start a slide is a little extra pressure (force applied over an area) to crush the weak layer and send the slab sliding off the top.
Atop those undisturbed sediments is a 100-meter-thick layer of rock fractured by the space rock's impact, she and her colleagues report.
The Media Layer - The media layer defines service delivery and consists of access devices, such as NGDLCs, digital subscriber line access multiplexers (DSLAMs), voice-over-DSL gateways, and media/trunking gateways.
* On a sprawling 61,000-acre private holding in northern California, Rick Swift, woodlands manager for The Hearst Corporation, has quietly developed one of the most complete GIS layer decks supporting any private forest operation: close to 30 layers of information, with heavy emphasis on wildlife.
Figure 2 shows a seven-layer rigid board with three flexible circuit layers. This odd layer construction is primarily used for designs that require two-sided shielding in the flex areas, which are mostly driven by strip-line impedance control.
In multilayer coating, the quality of the coated layer is not only associated with the flow in the coating bead, but also with the wettability characteristics of the different layers.
When you do something on a network (for example, send an email from London to New York) think of these layers as being stacked on top of each other with you at the top on layer-7.
These products are essentially 2 layers, made mostly on 3-layer lines.
The concept behind the original design, based on Dow Chemical technology, was that by dividing a coextrusion melt stream across its width and re-combining those new streams as a stack a film could be produced with many layers but without increasing its overall thickness.
