The organ of hearing; the external ear.
The sense of hearing; the perception of sounds; the power of discriminating between different tones; as, a nice ear for music; -- in the singular only.
To take in with the ears; to hear.
Sensory organ capable of detecting sound.
That which resembles in shape or position the ear of an animal; any prominence or projection on an object, -- usually one for support or attachment; a lug; a handle; as, the ears of a tub, a skillet, or dish. The ears of a boat are outside kneepieces near the bow. See Illust. of Bell.
In traditional typesetting, the lower case "g" character frequently has a small line projecting from the part of it that rests above the baseline (i.e., the bowl, or counter). This projecting part is called the ear. See also BASELINE BOWL COUNTER LETTER
The projection on letters like the lowercase 'g' and 'p.'
A wavy projection formed in the course of deep drawing, as a reult of directional properties or anisotropy of the sheet.
The spike or head of any cereal (as, wheat, rye, barley, Indian corn, etc.), containing the kernels.
To put forth ears in growing; to form ears, as grain; as, this corn ears well.
the part of a cereal plant (such as corn or wheat) which contains the flowers and hence the fruit, grains, or kernels
The female flower of corn that produces seed after pollination.
Effective Annual Rate (EAR), Is the real annual cost of an overdraft or Loan, stated as an annual rate, which takes into account how often interest is charged to the account. All other charges, such as arrangement fees must be shown separately from the EAR.
Equivalent Annual Rate. Equivalent Annual Rate. This takes account of the interest rate and how often interest is paid, and does not include any fees or charges.
Effective Annual Rate. The amount of loan interest charged each year by a lender. Unlike the Annual Percentage Rate (APR) it does not include charges and fees and can therefore be misleading when it comes to calculating the cost of a loan.
Effective Annual Rate. Yearly interest charged by a lender for a loan, which does not include fees.
nterprise Ar chive When it comes to deploying a Forms application you need to get all your FMX, PLL and MMX files and make sure you put them on the correct place on the application server before you can run the application. Wouldn't it be great if you could zip up all of these files in the correct structure and just "drop" them onto your new application server? Well J2EE already gives you that. The EAR file allows the J2EE application to be bundled and deployed as a single file.
Enterprise ARchive file. A Java file type.
(Enterprise Archive) A file format used for deploying a J2EE application. An.ear (Enterprise Archive) file consists of one or more J2EE modules and a deployment descriptor. Within the .ear file, components are grouped into separate module types--JSP pages, servlets, and HTML pages are grouped into web archive files (.war files) while enterprise beans are grouped into EJB modules (EJB .jar files). See also EJB, J2EE application, JSP, WAR.
An Enterprise ARchive, or EAR, is a file format used by Java EE for packaging one or more modules into a single archive so that the deployment of the various modules onto an application server happens simultaneously and coherently. It also contains XML files called deployment descriptors which describe how to deploy the modules on an application server.
A bent corner put on a playing card by a cheat to identify or locate it.
The act of bending the corner of a card so it can be recognized in later play. Used by players attempting to cheat.
Either corner at the top of the front page (sometimes used for weather news or to call attention to a special feature).
A bent corner put on a playing card to identify or locate it. "He put the ear on the aces".
The Estimated Average Requirement (EAR) is the intake value that is estimated to meet the requirement defined by a specified indicator of adequacy in 50 percent of an age- and gender-specific group. At this level of intake, the remaining 50 percent of the specified group would not have its needs met. This figure is to be used as the basis for developing the RDA.
Estimated average requirement. The intake value that is estimated to be optimal for about half of the individuals in a specified group. In other words, the EAR meets a specified requirement in 50 percent of an age- and gender-specific group. At this level of intake, the remaining 50 percent of the specified group would not have its needs met. EAR is one of the guidelines encompassed in DRI (dietary reference intakes) established by the National Academy of Sciences.
This is the value given where half of a certain group of people, according to age and/or fitness and/or gender would have their supplement requirements met sufficiently. An EAR is one of the DRI (Dietary Reference Intake) guide values. (See DRI‘s).
Experimental Audio Research is a group comprising Peter Kember (Sonic Boom), formerly of Spacemen 3 and others, including Kevin Shields from Irish shoegazers, My Bloody Valentine.
Estimated additional resources. The uranium in addition to reasonable assured resources (RAR) that is expected to occur, mostly on the basis of direct geological evidence, in extensions of well-explored deposits, little-explored deposits, and undiscovered deposits believed to exist along a well-defined geologic trend with known deposits, such that the uranium can subsequently be recovered within the given cost ranges. Estimates of tonnage and grade are based on available sampling data and on knowledge of the deposit characteristics as determined in the best known parts of the deposit or in similar deposits. EAR correspond to DOE's Probable Potential Resource Category.

The Ear rune of the Anglo-Saxon Futhorc is a late addition to the alphabet. It is, however, still attested from epigraphical evidence, notably the Thames scramasax, and its introduction thus cannot postdate the 9th century.
