the act of catching an object with the hands; "Mays made the catch with his back to the plate"; "he made a grab for the ball before it landed"; "Martin's snatch at the bridle failed and the horse raced away"; "the infielder's snap and throw was a single motion"
Usually refers to the ability of a ball to "go long" and then make a violent turn back to the pocket. A bowler that has a "skid-snap" reacting ball will create large entry angles, but at some expense of accuracy. See also "arc".
A snap (colloquially called a "hike", "snapback", or "pass from center") starts each American football and Canadian football play from scrimmage. The ball begins on the ground with its long axis parallel to the sidelines of the field, its ends marking each team's line of scrimmage in American football; in Canadian football line of scrimmage of the team without the ball is 1 yard their side of the ball. The snap must be a quick and continuous movement of the ball by one or both hands of the snapper, and the ball must leave the snapper's hands.
Subnetwork Access Protocol. Internet protocol that operates between a network entity in the subnetwork and a network entity in the end system. SNAP specifies a standard method of encapsulating IP datagrams and ARP messages on IEEE networks. The SNAP entity in the end system makes use of the services of the subnetwork and performs three key functions: data transfer, connection management, and QOS selection.
(Sub Network Access Protocol): A SNAP header consists of 5 bytes, three bytes of OUI (Organizationally Unique Identifier) and 2 bytes of PID (Protocol IDentifier). The OUI defines which organization administers the PID that follows. The value of 000000h in the OUI means that the PID is defined as an EtherType.
Subnetwork Access Protocol. A version of the IEEE local area network logical link control frame similar to the data link level transmission frame that allows the use of nonstandard higher-level protocols.
Snap as a dance move is a brisk, abrupt body/head/arm/hand action varying in style in different dances. It may involve body ripple (body wave), abrupt turn of the head, hip motion, etc. Not to be confused with the Hip hop style of Snap dance, which is based on finger snapping.
Snapping is the act of creating a cracking sound with one's fingers. This sound can be used to create rhythm, e.g., during dancing. Castanet is a musical instrument designed to imitate enhanced snapping.
The ability to move a selected point or polygon to a previously designated point in space. The two basic types are point snap, which snaps the point or polygon to the current ATP, and grid snap, which snaps the selected point to the nearest point in a 3D grid.
This term refers to a technique whereby a point is automatically shifted to a near-by grid point. This is useful if you have to define or move points to positions which fall exactly on the intersections of a pre-defined grid. See the Set Grid, Grid ON, and Snap ON commands.
Snap is a fictional character from the Nickelodeon animated television series Chalk Zone. He was Rudy Tabootie's sidekick, as he was based on a comic strip character that he'd created. He is voiced by Candi Milo.
State Nutrition Assistance Program. 2.5 million is requested each year for the SNAP Program in North Carolina and $1 million is allocated from the North Carolina General Assembly to the six North Carolina America's Second Harvest Food Banks. The funds enable the Food Banks to further alleviate hunger by using this appropriation to purchase staple foods from North Carolina companies for emergency assistance agencies such as food pantries, soup kitchens, rescue missions, Kids Cafes, domestic violence shelters and homeless shelters. Since 1997, these funds have been designated for food purchases with a small percentage supporting transportation, storage and distribution.
Any task, labor, set of circumstances, or the like, that yields satisfactory results or gives pleasure with little trouble or effort, as an easy course of study, a job where work is light, a bargain, etc.
Significant New Alternatives Policy. Section 612 of the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990 requires EPA to publish lists of acceptable and unacceptable alternatives for ozone depleting substances (ODSs). These lists are available from: SNAP Coordinator U.S. EPA 6205J 401 M St. SW Washington, DC 20460 (202) 233-9195
Tool used in most audio/midi recording/editing apps to align audio or midi clips, and midi notes to time. This can be either to the beggining of a measure, 1/2, 1/4 note etc. And usually as small as the app will count time to.
The Special Needs Accommodation Panel (SNAP) is made up of senior officers from Social Services and the 6 District Housing Departments, together with representatives from the other groups who make up the SNAGs above. The Panel's main function is to coordinate a countywide strategy for special needs housing.
A proposed satellite-based experiment for finding and studying supernovae. The characteristics of such supernovae have proved useful in studying dark energy. For more information, see: http://snap.lbl.gov/.
Snap, in physics, is the fourth derivative of position with respect to time, the first, second and third derivatives being velocity, acceleration, and jerk respectively. In other words, snap is the rate of change of jerk.
