Normally a budget describes a period in the future not the past. 8. Budget planning calendar (calendario de presupuesto)Schedule of activities for the development and adoption of the budget. It should include a list of dates indicating when specific information is to be provided to others by each information source. The preparation of a master budget usually takes several months. For instance, many firms start the budget for the next calendar year in September, anticipating its completion by the first of December. Because all of the individual departmental budgets are based on forecasts prepared by others and the budgets of other departments, a planning calendar is essential to integrate the entire process. 9. Business cycle frequency: ( ciclo de frecuencia de negocios)The business cycle frequency is considered to be three to five years. Called the business cycle frequency by Burns and Mitchell (1946), and this became standard language. 10. Business cycle: (ciclo de negocios)The business cycle is the periodic but irregular upand-down movements in economic activity, measured by fluctuations. 11.

DESIGN AND ASSEMBLY OF WOOD STRUCTURES 1. Acoustical Tile: Special tile for walls and ceilings made of mineral, wood, vegetable fibers, cork, or metal. Its purpose is to control sound volume, while providing cover. 2. Ah: Abbreviation for Amp Hour 3. Air Duct: Pipes that carry warm air and cold air to rooms and back to furnace or air

conditioning system. 4. Ampere: The rate of flow of electricity through electric wires. 5. amp-hours: A measure of the flow of current (in amperes) over one hour. 6. Anchor: irons of special form used to connect timbers or masonry 7. Anchor bolts: bolts which fasten columns girders or other members to concrete or masonry 8. Anode: The positive pole or electrode of an electrolytic cell, vacuum tube, etc. 9. Apron: (1.) a plain or molded finish piece below the stool of a window covers the rough edges of plaster (2.) A paved area, such as the juncture of a driveway with the street or with a garage entrance. 10. Argon: A colorless, odorless inert gas sometimes used in the spaces between the panes in energy efficient windows. This gas is used because it will transfer less heat than air. 11. Atrium: An interior court to which rooms open. 12. Attic: The usually unfinished space above a ceiling and below a roof. 13. Attic fan: A fan mounted on an attic wall used to exhaust warm attic air to the outside. 14. Attic vent: A passive or mechanical device used to ventilate an attic space, primarily to reduce heat buildup and moisture condensation. 15. Audit: (energy) The process of determining energy consumption, by various techniques, of a building or facility. 16. Automatic damper: A device that cuts off the flow of hot or cold air to or from a room as controlled by a thermostat. 17. Awning: An architectural element for shading windows and wall surfaces placed on the exterior of a building; can be fixed or movable. 18. Back fill : The gravel or earth replaced in the space around a building wall after foundations are in place 19. Backing: the bevel on the top edge of a hip rafter that allows the roofing board to fit the top of the rafter without leaving a triangular space between it and the lower side of the roof covering 20. balloon frame: the lightest and most economical form of construction The studding and corner posts are set up in continuous lengths from the first floor line or sill to the roof plate 21. Baluster: a small pillar or column used to support a rail 22. Band: a low flat molding 23. Base the bottom: of a column the finish of a room at the junction of the walls and floor 24. Baseboard: A board along the floor against walls and partitions to hid gaps. 25. Base molding: the molding on the top of a baseboard

26. Bat: Insulation in the form of a blanket, rather than loose filling. 27. Batten cleat: a narrow strip of board fastening several pieces together 28.

Batter pile: a pile driven at an angle to brace a structure against lateral thrust

MULTIMEDIA PRODUCTION 1. Access Point: An access point is a device, such as a wireless router, that allows wireless devices to connect to a network. Most access points have built-in routers, while others must be connected to a router in order to provide network access. In either case, access points are typically hardwired to other devices, such as network switches or broadband modems. Active-Matrix 2. Active-matrix: is a technology used in LCD displays, such as laptop screens, and flat screen monitors. It uses a matrix of thin film transistors (TFTs) and capacitors to control the image produced by the display. The brightness of each pixelis controlled by modifying the electrical charge of the corresponding capacitors. Each pixel's color is controlled by altering the charge of individual capacitors that emit red, green, and blue (RGB) Adapter 3. Adapter device: An adapter is a device that allows a specific type of hardwareto work with another device that would otherwise be incompatible. Examples of adapters include electrical adapters, video adapters, audio adapters, and network adapters. 4. ADC 5. ADF 6. ADSL 7.

8. ALU 9. ATA

Arithmetic Logic Unit Advanced Technology Attachment

10. Backside Bus: There are two types of buses that carry data to and from a computer's CPU. They are the frontside bus and backside bus. Surprisingly, there is no correlation between these and the backside and frontside airs that snowboarders talk about. 11. Barebones : A barebones PC is a computer that has minimalcomponents. A typical barebones system includes a case,motherboard, CPU, hard drive, RAM, and power supply. Most barebones systems are sold as kits, in which the components must be assembled by the user. 12. Base Station: The term "base station" was first used to refer to the towers you see on the side of the road that relay cell phone calls. These stations handle all cellular calls made within their area, receiving information from one end of the call and transmitting it to the other. 13. Blu-ray: Blu-ray is an optical disc format such as CD and DVD. It was developed for recording and playing back high-definition (HD) video and for storing large amounts of data. While a CD can hold 700 MB of data and a basic DVD can hold 4.7 GB of data, a single Blu-ray disc can hold up to 25 GB of data. Even a double sided, dual layer DVD (which are not common) can only hold 17 GB of data. Dual-layer Blu-ray discs will be able to store 50 GB of data. That is equivalent to 4 hours of HDTV. 14. Boot Disk: A boot disk is actually not a computer disk in the shape of a boot. If it was, most disk drives would have a difficult time reading it. Instead, a boot disk is a disk that a computer can start up or "boot" from. The most common type of boot disk is an internal hard drive, which most computers use to start up from. The operating system installed on the hard drive is loaded during the boot process. 15. Bridge: When a road needs to extend across a river or valley, a bridge is built to connect the two land masses. Since the average car cannot swim or fly, the bridge makes it

possible for automobiles to continue driving from one land mass to another. 16. Cable Modem A cable modem is used for connecting to the Internet and is much faster than a typical dial-up modem. While a 56K modem can receive data at about 53 Kbps, cable modems support data transfer rates of up to 30 Mbps. That's over 500 times faster. However, most ISPs limit their subscribers' transfer rates to less than 6 Mbps to conserve bandwidth.
