GAU12UThe five-barrel 'Equalizer' cannon was developed in the late 1970s, based on the mechanism of the GAU-8/A Avenger cannon, but firing a new NATO series of 25 mm ammunition. The GAU-12U cannon is operated by a 15 hp (11 kW) electric motor, in external mounts supplied by a bleed air-drive pneumatic system. Its rate of fire is normally 3,600 rounds per minute, with a maximum of 4,200 rounds per minute. The Equalizer normally uses PGU-20/U armor-piercing incendiary (API) or PGU-22 or PGU-25 high-explosive incendiary (HEI) ammunition. With a harder-hitting projectile and comparable muzzle velocity, it is more lethal than the older M61 Vulcan, and more effective than the older 30 mm ADEN cannon it replaces.

GERefluxDiseaseGastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), is a chronic condition in which Stomach contents rise up into the Esophagus, resulting in either symptoms or complications. Symptoms include the taste of acid in the back of the mouth, heartburn, bad breath, ChestPain, regurgitation, Breathing problems, and wearing away of the Teeth. Complications include esophagitis, esophageal stricture, and Barrett's esophagus. Risk factors include obesity, pregnancy, smoking, hiatal hernia, and taking certain medicines. Medications that may cause or worsen the disease include Benzodiazepines, calcium channel blockers, tricyclic Antidepressants, NSAIDs, certain Asthma medicine. Acid reflux is due to poor closure of the lower esophageal sphincter, which is at the junction between the stomach and the esophagus. Diagnosis among those who do not improve with simpler measures may involve gastroscopy, upper GI series, esophageal pH monitoring, or esophageal manometry. Treatment options include lifestyle changes, medications, and sometimes Surgery for those who do not improve with the first two measures.[from Wikipedia][and full SUMO definition]

GallbladderIn vertebrates, the gallbladder, also known as the cholecyst, is a small hollow organ where Bile is stored and concentrated before it is released into the SmallIntestine. In humans, the pear-shaped gallbladder lies beneath the Liver, although the structure and position of the gallbladder can vary significantly among animal species. It receives and stores bile, produced by the liver, via the common hepatic duct, and releases it via the common bile duct into the duodenum, where the bile helps in the digestion of fats.

GramNegativeGram-negative bacteria are bacteria (Bacterium) that do not retain the crystal violet stain used in the GramStaining method of bacterial differentiation. They are characterized by their cell envelopes, which are composed of a thin peptidoglycan cell wall sandwiched between an inner cytoplasmic CellMembrane and a bacterial outer membrane. Gram-negative bacteria are found in virtually all environments on Earth that support life. The gram-negative bacteria include the model organism Escherichia coli, as well as many pathogenic bacteria, such as Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Chlamydia trachomatis, and YersiniaPestis. They are an important medical challenge, as their outer membrane protects them from many Antibiotics (including Penicillin), Detergents that would normally damage the inner cell membrane, and lysozyme, an antimicrobial Enzyme produced by animals that forms part of the innate immune system. Additionally, the outer leaflet of this membrane comprises a complex lipopolysaccharide (LPS) whose lipid A component can cause a toxic reaction when bacteria are lysed by immune cells. This toxic reaction lead to low blood pressure, respiratory failure, reduced oxygen delivery, and lactic acidosis—a life-threatening condition known as septic shock. Several classes of antibiotics have been designed to target gram-negative bacteria, including aminopenicillins, ureidopenicillins, cephalosporins, beta-lactam-betalactamase inhibitor combinations (e.g. piperacillin-tazobactam), Folate antagonists, quinolones, and carbapenems. Many of these antibiotics also cover GamPositive organisms. The drugs that specifically target gram negative organisms include aminoglycosides, monobactams (aztreonam) and ciprofloxacin. [from Wikipedia][and full SUMO definition]
GramPositiveIn bacteriology, gram-positive bacteria are bacteria that give a positive result in GramStaining, which is traditionally used to quickly classify bacteria (Bacterium) into two broad categories according to their type of cell wall. Gram-positive bacteria take up the crystal violet stain used in the test, and then appear to be purple-coloured when seen through an optical microscope. This is because the thick peptidoglycan layer in the bacterial Cell wall retains the stain after it is washed away from the rest of the sample, in the decolorization stage of the test. [from Wikipedia][and full SUMO definition]
GramStainingGram stain or Gram staining, also called Gram's method, is a method of staining used to distinguish and classify bacterial species (Bacterium) into two large groups: GramPositive bacteria and GramNegative bacteria. Gram staining differentiates bacteria by the chemical and physical properties of their cell walls. Gram-positive cells have a thick layer of peptidoglycan in the cell wall that retains the primary stain, crystal violet. Gram-negative cells have a thinner peptidoglycan layer that allows the crystal violet to wash out on addition of Ethanol. They are stained pink or red by the counterstain commonly safranin or fuchsine. Lugol's iodine solution is always added after addition of crystal violet to strengthen the bonds of the stain with the cell membrane. [from Wikipedia][and full SUMO definition]

GuidanceDesignPatternInstances of RealtimeSystems are described as systems with Guidance-DesignPattern if they consist of sensors connected to a software module that filters data from the sensors and sends the filtered data to a software module that evaluates the filtered data and sends instructions to a software module that commands actuators. The design pattern is an event source that produces events and a data source that produces data, both executing in parallel and handled by a single event-driven periodic data handler. The two separate input streams have fundamentally different characteristics. The event stream is necessarily asychronous, or transient. Once an event is sensed, the handler accepts data from the data stream, which has an invariant cycle time. There are two deadlines for a real-time guidance system. The period deadline is the time to process all elements in the data stream once and generate an actuator command. The action completion deadline is the time to guide the actuator to completion of the action.[and full SUMO definition]

GuidedMissileMissiles that have the ability to maneuver through the air can be guided, and are known as guided missiles. These have three key system components: * tracking * guidance * flight A tracking system locates the missile's target. This can be either a human gunner aiming a sight on the target (remotely from the missile) or an automatic tracker. Automatic trackers use radiation emanating from the target or emitted from the launch platform and reflecting back to it from the target. Passive automatic trackers use the target's inherent radiation, usually heat or light, but missiles designed to attack Command & Control posts, aircraft or guided missiles may look for radio waves. Active automatic trackers rely on the target being illuminated by radiation. The target can be painted with light (sometimes infrared and/or laser) or radio waves (radar) which can be detected by the missile. The radiation for the painting can originate in the missile itself or may come from a remote station (for example, a hilltop gunner can illuminate a target with a laser device and this can be used to direct an air launched guided missile). A guidance system takes data from the missile's tracking system and flight system and computes a flight path for the missile designed to intercept the target. It produces commands for the flight system. The flight system causes the missile to maneuver. There are two main systems: vectored thrust (for missiles that are powered throughout the guidance phase of their flight) and aerodynamic maneuvering (wings, fins, canards, etc). There are some similarities between guided missiles and guided bombs. A guided bomb, dropped from an aircraft, is unpowered and uses aerodynamic fins for forward horizontal maneuvering while falling vertically. (from Wikipedia)[and full SUMO definition]

GuineaPigThe guinea pig (Cavia porcellus), cavy or domestic guinea pig, or cuy for livestock breeds, is a species of rodent belonging to the family Caviidae and the genus Cavia. Despite their common name, these animals are not in the pig family Suidae, nor do they come from Guinea. They originated in the Andes, and earlier studies based on biochemistry and hybridization suggest they are domesticated descendants of a closely related species of cavy such as Cavia aperea, C. fulgida, or C. tschudii and, therefore, do not exist naturally in the wild. Recent studies applying molecular markers, in addition to studying the Skull and skeletal morphology of current and mummified animals, revealed that the ancestor is most likely Cavia tschudii.
