To cause to turn round rapidly; to whirl; to twirl; as, to spin a top.
To shape, as malleable sheet metal, into a hollow form, by bending or buckling it by pressing against it with a smooth hand tool or roller while the metal revolves, as in a lathe.
To move round rapidly; to whirl; to revolve, as a top or a spindle, about its axis.
Velocity of rotation about some specified axis.
Every non trivial GUI sooner or later encounters the problem of "freeze". This annoying behaviour is experienced by users every time the application performs extensive calculations or blocks for network or disk I/O. Spin offers a new approach for solving this problem. It offers transparent thread handling with minimal impact on your application code.
Spin is a transparent threading solution for non-freezing Swing applications.
To draw out, and twist into threads, either by the hand or machinery; as, to spin wool, cotton, or flax; to spin goat's hair; to produce by drawing out and twisting a fibrous material.
To form (a web, a cocoon, silk, or the like) from threads produced by the extrusion of a viscid, transparent liquid, which hardens on coming into contact with the air; -- said of the spider, the silkworm, etc.
an interpretation of an event which is favorable to the interpreter or to the person s/he supports. A person whose task is to provide such interpretations for public relations purposes is called a spin doctor.
A particular point of view or slant given to a story to make it more appealing or to make something appear favorable.
the slant placed on political news by individuals with a vested interest in how the public interprets the news.
The attempt to place a favourable interpretation on an event so that people or the media will interpret it in that way. Those performing this act are known as spin doctors.
an aerobatic maneuver whereby the airplane is flown vertically down towards the ground, while being made to roll. Easy to get into one but not always so easy to get out of, especially when the airplane-to-ground distance has been badly judged. In this instance, you will need to use the plastic bag.
rapid descent of an aircraft in a steep spiral
an aggravated stall in which one wing is more fully stalled than the other and thus experiences less lift and more drag
an aggravated stall that results in autorotation involving a rapid descent in a corksrew path
to pedal at high cadence.
smooth pedal motion. Opposite of push-push.
To pedal with smooth, fast, and efficient strokes.
v. smooth pedal motion or a short, sweet ride
A 360 degree turn on one foot

Service Provider Identification Number. A unique nine-digit number assigned by USAC to individual service providers participating in the E-rate program after submitting Form 473.

The number does not change as long as the service provider participates in the universal service programs. It is required on all forms referring to a service provider in order to identify the service provider.
Superannuation Product Identification Number issued by APIR
standard prescriber identification number. under development by the National Council of Prescription Drug Programs in conjunction with other professional organizations, this standard number could be used to identify prescribers
The spin of an electron is designated by ms, the electron spin quantum number, which can have values of +1/2 and -1/2.In the presence of an external magnetic field an electron in an orbital can have one of two possible energy states, which depend on whether the magnetic field associated with the electron is aligned with or against the external magnetic field.
Classically, the magnetic property of the electron derived from its nature as a "spinning" negative charge analogous to a current flowing in a "ring". Thus, electron may be viewed as a bar magnet with its north pole oriented either "up" or "down".
Spin is an industrial metal band from the Maltese Islands. The band was originally formed by Martin Ciappara and Simon Deguara in 1999 who released the first demo CD named Pead. The style started taking a more electronic and industrial form later on, with Eric Mangion joining in on samples, Richard Gatt on bass, and Josef Bajada on guitars.
