The measure of bulk solids
The quarter (fourth part or one quarter) – as a measure of the volume of loose bodies in the XIV – XX centuries, was used to measure the amount of grain, cereals, and flour. The Moscow economic practice of the 17th century distinguished the treasury acceptance and distribution (deprived) measure.

#2 Quick Response Team
In the United States, a Quick Response Team (QRT), also known as a Drug Abuse Response Team (DART), is an integrated, first responder and community paramilitary unit. That consists of law enforcement officers, rescue workers, health care professionals and/or substance abuse counselors.
A QRT is trained as a First Responder – unit to serve narcotic -related medical emergency. And then to approach and advise victims of an overdose during their recovery windows- 72 hours immediately after the life-threatening overdoses – when users are thought to accept more help. Currently, QRT and/or DART programs work in communities in at least 5 states.
The QRT distraction model was first developed in 2014 in the Cole rain Township, Ohio – a 45-square-mile suburb in Hamilton County, northwest of Cincinnati .
Cole rain then security service director Dan Melody – who had previously served as the community police chief.And later as the administrative community – overseen development of her pilot QRT program in collaboration with assistant fire chief Will Mueller Community (who also holds a lectureship in fire science at the University of Cincinnati ). And CEO Nan Frankel and social worker Shana Merrick of the Addiction Services Council of Greater Cincinnati .
At the same time and independently of the program Cole rain, Lucas County, Ohio, developed his similar DART model, which is also first deployed in 2014.
In January to June 2015 (the 6 months immediately prior to the first use of the device) from Cole rain. The first res ponders involved 96 overdose-related emergency emergencies (19 of which involved cardiac arrest ).
In the 6 months immediately following the deployment of QRT units, the county has 71 overdose-related emergency cases (7 of which are associated with cardiac arrest).
Although these initial positive signs were conclusively inadequate to prove the pilot program’s effectiveness, they were nevertheless encouraging. A subsequent year-over-year analysis supported its developer hypothesis that the QRT program could be effective in reducing the number of overdoses in the community.
In January to June 2016, the community has 67 overdose-related emergency cases (only 6 of which involved associated cardiac arrest). Representing slightly more than a 30% reduction in such runs from the same period of 6 months in the previous year.
At 2016’s year-end, Colerain Township’s Department of Public Safety reported that its QRT units had led about 250 overdose follow-up meetings since July 2015. When units were first deployed, and that nearly 80% of users advised by the unit had entered drug abuse treatment.
Nearby Middle, Ohio QRT probably did not manage to reduce overdose rates or overdose-related deaths in its first year of operation.
#3 Quantitative Reverse Transcription
Quantitative PCR or qPCR or real-time PCR is a particular method of polymerase chain reaction to measure the initial amount of DNA. As a matter of fact, quantitative PCR measures the number of amplicons (DNA portion defined by a pair of primers).It enables continuous (“real-time”) monitoring of the PCR amplification process by detecting fluorescence emitted by neo-formed PCR products.
The profile of a traditional quantitative PCR reaction can be divided into 3 steps:
- a first step is called background noise or sound: the amount of amplified fragment is insufficient to generate a fluorescent signal higher than the background noise (and thus the fluorescence generated).
- a second exponential growth phase step: the amount of amplified fragment generates a fluorescent signal greater than the detection threshold of the device. Then the number of amplified products doubles at each cycle. In logarithmic coordinates, this phase is represented by a line.
- a final step of plateau phase: some components of the reaction (and in particular the number of available Taq molecules) become limiting. The system no longer allows exponential amplification.
Detection can be performed utilizing SYBR green, a fluorescent organic compound that binds to nucleic acids, or probes, Taqman or FRET.
#4 Quatro Group
The QUATRO group was created in 2003 by four friends-musicians: Anton Boglevsky (tenor), Anton Sergeev (high tenor), Leonid Ovrutsky (baritone), Denis Vertunov (bass). All of them graduated from the AV Choir School. Sveshnikov. They were familiar with each other from the age of 6-7 years . In 2017, Danil Karzanov came to replace Denis Vertunov with the group.
The choice of the name for the group was aided by a case that occurred with members of the Quatro team while they were on an internship in Italy. Then the future band members learned that not far from them is the home of Placido Domingo and the young guys went to sing under the windows of the famous tenor.
As a result of their “mischief,” even the police were called and at that time local Italians showed them and said “QuattroRagazzi,” that is, “four guys.” Quattro team members liked the sound of the phrase QuattroRagazzi, but they decided to simplify it to one word. As a result, the name “Quatro” was chosen, that is, four.
All-Russian fame came to the group in 2008 after participating in the Five Stars.The results of which the musicians won the first prize. The winner of the competition was the singer Tahmina Niyazova, who bypassed the Quatro group by only one vote – 216 votes against 215.
And the quartet won national recognition in the Eurovision-2009 qualifying round, becoming one of the three leaders of the Russian national selection out of 16 candidates. As a result, viewers telephone and SMS voting for the group “Quatro” 12% voted.
The team often represents Russia in the international arena within the framework of the days of Russian culture. And other events organized by the Embassies of the Russian Federation and other public associations of the country.
In 2010, in London, in one of the most prestigious world halls of the Royal Albert Hall, Quatro’s group performed on the same stage with Joseph Kobzon. Since 2011, the team has been a frequent participant of the Russian Shrovetide in London festival, organized by Ensemble Productions, a London-based production company.
And conducted in partnership with the City Hall of London and the Russian Ministry of Culture, the Russkiy Mir Foundation, the Russian Agency for Rossotrudnichestvo. And the Russian Embassy in London and the Onexim group.
In 2013, members of the Quatro group became participants in the Ravello 2013 music festival. The concert, which took place on July 23 at the Belvedere Villas Ruffolo, was a mix of musical traditions from Russia and Italy. Neapolitan songs and Russian romances replaced each other in the performance of four soloists of the Russian group Kvatro and Dina ’s Golos television project Garipova.
The vocal group “Quatro” performed during the Days of Moscow in Nice on June 2016. The repertoire of the quartet includes works of various styles, from classics in modern processing and romances to gold hits of Soviet and foreign pop, as well as an author’s song.
The group worked on the same stage with Placido Domingo, Michael Bolton, Dmitry Hvorostovsky, Alessandro Safina, and Julia Nachalova.
#5 Quarto Game
Quarto Game is a board game abstract strategy turn-based, created by Blaise Muller.It won in 1985 at the international competition of designer board games Boulogne-Billancourt, as the 4 × 4 [ 1 ] and published since 1991 by Gigamic.This is a very simple concept game with a lot of possibilities.
The objective of the game is to align four pieces having at least one common point between them. But each player does not play what he wants, his opponent chooses for him.
The sixteen pieces of the game, all different, each have four distinct characters.High or low, round or square, light or dark, full or hollow. Each in turn chooses and gives a piece to the opponent, who must play it on a free space.
The winner is the one who, with a piece received, creates an alignment of four pieces having at least one common character and announces: “Quarto! “. In the event that alignment is present on the board but not announced, the winner is the first player to report his existence during his turn.

#7 Questions for Reflective Thinking
Reflective thinking: it is a way to establish an order of time to plan your ideas in the most conscious way. And to be able to look and say maybe you hear that I really need, that I really want that I am doing wrong, using thought as a tool.
The reflective thinking of the human being is able to perceive and to fathom a small part of the infinite wealth of structures. Forms and connections of the world – and in most cases can hardly determine whether something is “true” or whether images and feelings are generated by one’s own thoughts.
Reflection (translated from Latin. – turning back on yourself) – turning the consciousness on itself, the thought of thought. The reflective phenomenon is quite multi valued; in its most general form, there are three main meanings of the concept.
First, it is a philosophical and methodological reflection – awareness, understanding of science itself, it’s subject and method. The concept of reflection was developed by Descartes, Locke, Kant and other classics of philosophy. Their ideas formed the basis for understanding the reflexive phenomenon in psychology.

After the QRT is installed and configured, the QRT soft key can be configured in certain Cisco Unified IP Phone models.
#10 Quick Ray Trace
The quick ray tracing is an algorithm for the synthesis of images dimensional. Proposed initially by Turner Whited in 1980, it is based on the algorithm of determination of visible surfaces of Arthur Appel called Ray Casting (1968).
In the Ray Casting algorithm, the visible surfaces in the scene to be synthesized are determined by tracing rays from the observer ( camera ) to the scene through the plane of the image. The intersections of the ray are calculated with the different objects of the scene and that intersection that is closest to the observer determines which is the visible object.
The ray-tracing algorithm extends the idea of tracing the rays to determine the visible surfaces with a shading process (calculation of the intensity of the pixel ).That takes into account global lighting effects such as reflections, refraction or cast shadows.
To simulate the effects of reflection and refraction rays are traced recursively from the intersection point that is being shaded depending on the characteristics of the material of the intersected object.
To simulate the thrown shadows, rays are thrown from the point of intersection to the light sources. These rays are known as shadow rays.
