The NEIC collects data through the operation of national and global networks, and through cooperative agreements. To enable the detection and location of all felt earthquakes with the ., the NEIC acts as the National Operations Center of the Advanced National Seismic System (ANSS), a cooperative venture between the NEIC and the operators of the regional seismic networks across the United States. The NEIC also relies on the cooperation of a variety of seismic reporting networks throughout the world to gather data. The NEIC also collects non-instrumental reports of the effects of earthquakes on people and man-made structures and prepares isoseismal maps showing the distribution of intensities in widely felt or damaging shocks.
To be pedantic, the comparison is actually int ( EXPR ) == int ( EXPR ) , but that is only an issue if you use a floating point expression; when implicitly using $. as described in the previous paragraph, the comparison is int ( EXPR ) == int ( $. ) which is only an issue when $. is set to a floating point value and you are not reading from a file. Furthermore, "span" .. "spat" or .. will not do what you want in scalar context because each of the operands are evaluated using their integer representation.
The SPA sample apps rely on Entity Framework (EF) Code First models. The model entity classes and the TodoItemContext (a DbContext) are almost identical in the two templates. The only entity class changes: we added MaxLength attributes to the Title properties so we could demonstrate Breeze validation. Breeze includes the maximum string length and required constraints in the metadata it sends to the client. We get these validations for free in Breeze. The user learns about validation errors immediately, without a delayed rejection from the server. Of course EF will also apply these validations on the server automatically; that’s a feature of EF’s DbContext.
