The point at which the upper and lower boundary (support and resistance) of a triangle meet. Arithmetic target: A target measured by taking the same number of units (expressed in currency for a stock or points for an index) in the measurement distance and applying those units to the point of breakout to determine a minimum expected change in price or index level. See Logarithmic target, below, for an example.
The middle of of a corner, where you want the car to come as close to the inside of the turn as possible. Depending on the turn, you may want the car to reach the innermost part of the corner after the actual middle (late apex). See diagram 1.
An extensible asynchronous message relaying service for application layer programs. APEX is layered above BEEP. Messages can be relayed from end-point peer to end-point peer, via many relay peers. APEX is being standardized by the IETF Application Exchange (apex) Working Group – for more details see: http://www.ietf.org/html.charters/apex-charter.html
The geometric center of a corner. In racing, a driver will often use a "late apex," turning into the corner a little later than normal in order to straighten out the last part of the corner. This allows the driver to accelerate earlier and harder, gaining maximum speed down the subsequent straightaway.
A turn's apex is usually the slowest part of a turn, where the car runs closest to the edge of the track. This is also called the turn's clipping point (the car's inside tires can clip the edge of road at this point). The apex is the point in the corner when the car stops entering the corner and begins to exit the turn. The car slows down approaching the apex and then accelerates away from it. "Hitting" the apex allows a driver to take the straightest line and maintain maximum speed.
The apex was a cap worn by the flamines and salii at Rome. The essential part of the apex, to which alone the name properly belonged, was a pointed piece of olive-wood, the base of which was surrounded with a lock of wool. This was worn on the top of the head, and was held there either by fillets only, or, as was more commonly the case, was also fastened by means of two strings or bands, which were called apicula (Festus, s.v.), or offendices (Festus, s.v.), though the latter word is also interpreted to mean a kind of button, by which the strings were fastened under the chin (cf.
An advance purchase excursion. Such tickets can be purchased for a discount directly from the airline, or consolidator. However, as it says, 'advanced purchase' strictly applies. From the UK, as a general rule this is 21 or 30 days.
Apex (altitude physiology expeditions) is a high altitude medical research charity. It is based in Edinburgh, Scotland and was founded in 2000. It has conducted two high altitude research expeditions to the Chacaltaya high altitude laboratory, in Bolivia.
the white, conical linen hat worn by a flamen, symbol of his sacred office. It sometimes had a branch – a short wooden rod with a rounded-off end – protruding from its top. If the apex fell from the head of a flamen during a rite it was considered a terrible omen and the flamen was forced to resign.
apex is a general purpose Web server that was designed with the busy sysadmin in mind. It runs on both Unix and Windows. It strives to be simple and concise, yet powerful. It installs a default home page with customized links based on its single configuration file. It supports basic authentication to secure access to sensitive links with simple password protection.
Apex was an experimental radio broadcasting system introduced in the United States in 1934 that used high frequencies between roughly 25 and 42 MHz to achieve high fidelity sound with less static and distortion on AM stations. They were called "apex", "skyscraper" or "pinnacle" stations because of the height of the broadcast antennas used.
The direction the Earth is traveling toward located 90 degrees west of the sun. Meteors seen from this direction will be the fastest of all since they orbit in a retrograde orbit and the encounter the Earth in a "head on" collision. Apex radiants are separated into north and south branches due to the lack of meteors with zero inclination. The centers of these two branches are located 15 degrees north and south of the ecliptic, 90 degrees west of the sun.
Accepted Practices Exchange. An initiative of the meetings, conventions & exhibitions industry managed by the Convention Industry Council (CIC). APEX develops and manages the implementation of accepted practices (voluntary standards) for the industry.
