Who qualifies for a “save” in this example?


The starter left after five innings with a one run lead. (Actually, he was "pulled" after letting the first two batters on base in the sixth.) A reliever comes on, "strands" the two inherited runners in the sixth, then pitches the seventh and the eighth, that is a total of three innings. From what I understand, pitching three innings is one way to earn a save.

A closer pitches the ninth. And neither side scored after the starter left so the lead remained at one run.

Does the closer automatically get the save? Or might the three inning pitcher get the credit since he stranded two inherited runners? And it isn't possible for both of them to get the save, is it, even though both...

Using Qualifiers

You can use qualifiers to provide various implementations of a particular bean type. A qualifier is an annotation that you apply to a bean. A qualifier type is a Java annotation defined as @Target({METHOD, FIELD, PARAMETER, TYPE}) and @Retention(RUNTIME).

For example, you could declare an @Informal qualifier type and apply it to another class that extends the Greeting class. To declare this qualifier type, you would use the following code:

package greetings; import static java.lang.annotation.ElementType.FIELD; import static java.lang.annotation.ElementType.METHOD; import static java.lang.annotation.ElementType.PARAMETER; import static java.lang.annotation.ElementType.TYPE; import static java.lang.annotation.RetentionPolicy.RUNTIME; import java.lang.annotation.Retention; import java.lang.annotation.Target; import javax.inject.Qualifier; @Qualifier @Retention(RUNTIME) @Target({TYPE, METHOD, FIELD, PARAMETER}) public @interface Informal {}

At that time the two famous decrees were being prepared that so agitated society- abolishing court ranks and introducing examinations to

qualify for

the grades of Collegiate Assessor and State Councilor- and not merely these but a whole state constitution, intended to change the existing order of government in Russia: legal, administrative, and financial, from the Council of State down to the district tribunals.

Eric Holmes of Escalon, the only driver to

the Elite Division and Grand National Division Showdown races, was fourth.

A fully qualified domain name (FQDN) is the complete domain name for a specific computer, or host, on the Internet. The FQDN consists of two parts: the hostname and the domain name. For example, an FQDN for a hypothetical mail server might be mymail.somecollege.edu. The hostname is mymail, and the host is located within the domain somecollege.edu.

In this example, .edu is the top-level domain (TLD). This is similar to the root directory on a typical workstation, where all other directories (or folders) originate. (Within the .edu TLD, Indiana University Bloomington has been assigned the indiana.edu domain, and has authority to create subdomains within it.)

The same applies to web addresses. For example, www.indiana.edu is the FQDN on the web for IU. In this case, www is the name of the host in the indiana.edu domain.

When connecting to a host (using an SSH client, for example), you must specify the FQDN. The DNS server then resolves the hostname to its IP...

Several months ago, I was working with a student and after I made a statement, I said, “Let me qualify that…” at which point I added more information to make the statement true.

Two ways to qualify a statement: Add information, Narrow its focus

Let’s say* that I had said, “Boys tend to be less verbal than girls.” After saying this, I realize that I have overstated the truth. I can qualify my statement, making it more accurate, by adding additional information. For example,

“Boys tend to be less verbal than girls. Let me qualify that, boys are often perceived to be less verbal than girls.”

NOTE: Just as in this example, the first statement is typically repeated and then qualified.

In this context qualify means to modify a statement by restating it and including the specific conditions which make it true.

Additionally, we can qualify a statement by narrowing its focus. As in: “I’d like to qualify my statement. I’m not just pleased. I’m pleased with...

He even had to qualify his statements as to their sincerity.

I've met three men in my life that qualify on those grounds, and I don't get around that much.

The fact of his marrying would seem to show that he did not at the time intend to enter the church; possibly the death of his wife caused him to qualify for holy orders.

There is still in existence a translation of Guicciardini which he wrote with his own hand in order to qualify himself for government by acquiring a knowledge of political history.

The dissident " Catholic " churches are forced to qualify their titles: they are " Old Catholics " (Alt-Katholiken) or " German Catholics " (Deutsch-Katholiken).

The candidate whose work is notified as tres bien is admitted to the examinations at Hue, which qualify for the title of doctor and the holding of administrative offices.

Defoe maintained that the dissenters who attended the services of the English Church on particular occasions...

The following situations will help you determine in most cases if you qualify for a short sale:

All cats (and some dogs) like fish.

A parenthetical expression is a word or words added to a sentence without changing the meaning or grammar of the original sentence. Parenthetical expressions give extra information but are not essential. You can add and remove a parenthetical and the sentence works just the same.

Some information in a sentence is essential to its meaning, and some information may be less important or "nonessential":

Essential: The person taking money at the door asked for a form of identification.

Nonessential: The police, hoping to save time, took the expressway.

When nonessential information is added parenthetically to a sentence, it is usually separated from the main sentence by commas or other punctuation. In fact there are three types of punctuation that can separate parenthetical expressions:

commas , ......., round brackets (.......) long dashes —.......—

Commas are the usual form of punctuation for...

Whose is a bit more complicated. It sits before a noun to state (or ask) to whom it belongs. For example:

The terms




sound identical, but they perform very different roles in English.

Whose is the possessive form of

Why do you want to work for this company? Why are you interested in this job?

The interviewer is trying to determine what you know and like about the company, whether you will be willing to make a commitment to the job, and if your skills match the job requirements. Your research will be a big help in formulating your answer to this question. Say as many positive things about the company as possible, show your interest in whatever products/services they sell and explain why the position fits with your career goals.

Have you done this kind of work before?

The interviewer wants to know if you can learn to do the job in a reasonable time and how much training you will need. Never say "no" to this question. Instead, stress the experience you do have that will assist you in learning the new job quickly and efficiently. No two jobs are alike and you never do exactly the same work. In all jobs, new skills, rules and details have to be learned. Be sure to mention...

The trickier application questions are not as daunting when you know how to answer them. Take a look at our examples and give yourself a great chance of getting an interview

Some sections of an application form contain questions that require straightforward, factual answers. These include those that enquire about your personal details, interests and work experience.

However, you'll find that there are also competency-based questions; these require you to provide examples of situations where you made certain decisions.

Employers will be looking at how you explain the reasoning behind them, as this brings your key skills and personality traits to the fore.

Here are ten job questions that you're likely to face, along with typical responses.

Why do you want to work here?

How to answer: The employer is trying to figure out your motivations and whether you've given serious consideration to your application. You need to show that you've done...

Nouns have different classes: proper and common, concrete and abstract, count and noncount, and collective.

Proper vs. Common Nouns

Proper nouns name specific, one-of-a-kind items while common nouns identify the general varieties. Proper nouns always begin with capital letters; common nouns, on the other hand, only require capitalization if they start the sentence or are part of a title. Read these two versions:

George and Godzilla dined at Antonio's.

George, Godzilla, Antonio's = proper nouns.

A boy and his monster dined at a pizza restaurant.

Boy, monster, restaurant = common nouns.

Concrete vs. Abstract Nouns

You classify concrete and abstract nouns by their ability to register on your five senses. If you can see, hear, smell, taste, or feel the item, it's a concrete noun. If, however, you cannot experience the item with any of your senses, it's abstract. Here are two...

An employer in the United States may provide transportation benefits to their employees that are tax free up to a certain limit. Under the U.S. Internal Revenue Code section 132(a), the qualified transportation benefits are one of the eight types of statutory employee benefits (also known as fringe benefits) that are excluded from gross income in calculating federal income tax. The qualified transportation benefits are transit passes, vanpooling, bicycling, and parking associated with these things.[1][2]

Commuting expenses in general are not excluded from taxable compensation in US tax law (for example, the cost of fuel to drive to the regular work place cannot be deducted). The goal of making the specific benefits described above nontaxable is to encourage forms of commuting that reduce road congestion and pollution.[3]


Tax-free commuter benefits, also known as qualified transportation fringes, are employer provided voluntary benefit...

late 13c., "restorative powers of the body, bodily processes; powers of growth;" from Old French nature "nature, being, principle of life; character, essence," from Latin natura "course of things; natural character, constitution, quality; the universe," literally "birth," from natus "born," past participle of nasci "to be born," from PIE *gene- "to give birth, beget" (see genus).

From late 14c. as "creation, the universe;" also "heredity, birth, hereditary circumstance; essential qualities, innate disposition" (e.g. human nature); "nature personified, Mother Nature." Specifically as "material world beyond human civilization or society" from 1660s. Nature and nurture have been contrasted since 1874.

Nature should be avoided in such vague expressions as 'a lover of nature,' 'poems about nature.' Unless more specific statements follow, the reader cannot tell whether the poems have to do with natural scenery, rural life, the sunset, the untouched wilderness, or the habits...
