American Disability Act
Americans with Disabilties Act
The ADA is the federal law governing the rights of persons with disabilities.
1990 federal legislation which guarantees equal opportunity for individuals with disabilities in employment, public accommodations, transportation, state and local government services, and communications.
Block-structured programming language developed under the guidance of the U.S. Department of Defense to provide a medium for writing real-time, concurrent applications for facilitating program verification.
A Pascal-descended language that has been made mandatory for Department of Defense software projects by the Pentagon. Hackers are nearly unanimous in observing that, technically, it is precisely what one might expect given that kind of endorsement by fiat; designed by committee, crockish, difficult to use, and overall a disastrous, multi-billion-dollar boondoggle (one common description is ``The PL/I of the 1980s''). Hackers find Ada's exception-handling and inter-process communication features particularly hilarious. Ada Lovelace (the daughter of Lord Byron who became the world's first programmer while cooperating with Charles Babbage on the design of his mechanical computing engines in the mid-1800s) would almost certainly blanch at the use to which her name has latterly been put; the kindest thing that has been said about it is that there is probably a good small language screaming to get out from inside its vast, elephantine bulk.
High order computer language for US armed forces
Is a language descended from Pascal.

Average Daily Attendance(Membership Days minus Absence Count) divided by number of days in reporting period Example:1 student has 40 possible membership days and is absent 1 of those days (40 - 1) / 40 = .975 ada
AVERAGE DAILY ATTENDANCE. The average attendance of students in a school corporation taken over a three week period beginning the first Monday after Labor Day. Kindergarten is counted as one-half ADA. A full year ADA is also determined and is used for statistical purposes.
