Work (electrical) Electrical work is the work done on a charged particle by an electric field. The equation for 'electrical' work is equivalent to that of 'mechanical' work:
Care work The historical push of women into care work combined with the contemporary dominance of women in these fields, accounts for the modern conceptions that care work is inherently feminine work. However, care work is not naturally feminized. Instead, care work is only socialized into a feminine sphere, and is also done by males. Despite the social nature of the feminization of care work, it has become so feminized that there is often a stigma against men who engage in care work. This stigma may discourage men from entering care work as well as further propagate the belief that care work is inherently women’s work.
Work card A work card is like an Identity Card which verifies that a person has been given work, or is eligible to perform work in a given profession or jurisdiction. The work card is not a work visa, although it may be used in conjunction with a work visa, permanent resident card or other documentation.
Virtual work The right-hand-side of (d,e) is often called the internal virtual work. The principle of virtual work then states: "External virtual work is equal to internal virtual work when equilibrated forces and stresses undergo unrelated but consistent displacements and strains". It includes the principle of virtual work for rigid bodies as a special case where the internal virtual work is zero.
Work–life interface Work–life interface is the intersection of work and private life. There are many aspects of one's personal life that can intersect with work including family, leisure, and health. Work–life interface is bidirectional; for instance, work can interfere with private life, and private life can interfere with work. This interface can be adverse in nature (e.g., work-life conflict) or can be beneficial (e.g., work-life enrichment) in nature.
Derivative work The musical "West Side Story", is a derivative work based on Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet", because it uses numerous expressive elements from the earlier work. However, Shakespeare's drama "Romeo and Juliet" is also a derivative work that draws heavily from "Pyramus and Thisbe" and other sources. Nevertheless, no legal rule prevents a derivative work from being based on a work that is itself a derivative work based on a still earlier work — at least, so long as the last work borrows expressive elements from the second work that are original with the second work rather than taken from the earliest work. The key is whether the copied elements are original and expressive (not merely conventional or "mise en scène"); if that is so, the second or derivative work is independently subject to copyright protection, and if that is not, the second work (if unauthorized) may infringe the first, but it is not independently copyrightable.
WORK Wheels WORK Co. Ltd (Work Company Limited, 作業株式会社) is a high-end Japanese wheel manufacturer for both motorsport and street use, mostly notable for manufacturing the "WORK Equip" and "WORK Meister" range of wheels.
Work Choice Work Choice is a voluntary Department for Work and Pensions programme "which helps disabled people with more complex issues find work and stay in a job".
Derivative work ("e") in the case of any literary, dramatic, musical or artistic work, to reproduce, adapt and publicly present the work as a cinematographic work
Work stealing In a work stealing scheduler, each processor in a computer system has a queue of work items (computational tasks, threads) to perform. Each work item consists of a series of instructions, to be executed sequentially, but in the course of its execution, a work item may also "spawn" new work items that can feasibly be executed in parallel with its other work. These new items are initially put on the queue of the processor executing the work item. When a processor runs out of work, it looks at the queues of other processors and "steals" their work items. In effect, work stealing distributes the scheduling work over idle processors, and as long as all processors have work to do, no scheduling overhead occurs.
Work loop A work loop combines two separate plots: force vs. time and length vs. time. When force is plotted against length, a work loop plot is created: each point along the loop corresponds to a force and a length value at a unique point in time. As time progresses, the plotted points trace the shape of the work loop. The direction in which the work loop is traced through time is a critical feature of the work loop. As the muscle shortens while generating a tensile force (i.e. "pulling"), then, by convention in, the muscle is said to be performing positive work during that phase. As the muscle lengthens (while still generating a tensile force), the muscle is performing negative work (or, alternatively, that positive work is being performed " on" the muscle). Thus a muscle generating force while shortening is said to output 'positive work' (i.e. generating work), whereas a muscle generating force while lengthening produces 'negative work' (i.e. absorbing work). Over an entire cycle, there is typically some positive, and some negative work; if the overall cycle is counter-clockwise vs. clockwise work loop represents overall work generation vs. work absorption, respectively. For example during a jump, the leg muscles generate work to increase the body's speed away from the ground, yielding counter-clockwise work loops. When landing, however, the same muscles absorb work to decrease the body's speed, yielding clockwise work loops. Furthermore, a muscle can produce positive work followed by negative work (or vice versa) within a shortening-lengthening cycle, causing a 'figure 8' work loop shape containing both clockwise and counter-clockwise segments.
Critical social work A new journal published by Policy Press called "Critical and Radical Social Work: An international journal" promotes debate and scholarship around a range of engaged social work themes. The journal publishes papers which seek to analyse and respond to issues, such as the impact of global neo-liberalism on social welfare; austerity and social work; social work and social movements; social work, inequality and oppression. Stephen A. Webb has been commissioned by Routledge to edit a major international reference work 'A Handbook of Critical Social Work' (due for publication 2018). Webb published 'The New Politics of Social Work' in 2013 written in the tradition of critical social work.
Busy work Busy work has historical precedent in primary education. Entire books have been published that document various busy work activities and curricula per student grade levels, types of activities and how the work is associated with various types and stages of learning. Examples include "Plans for Busy Work" (published in 1901) and "Education by Doing: Occupations and Busy Work for Primary Classes (published in 1909).
Work card Work cards are increasingly used in the European Union (EU) to verify an individual's citizenship in a member-nation, and the kind of work which that individual may engage in. For example, citizens of states with provisional membership in the EU must obtain both an EU work card and a work card from nation in which they wish to work.
Light Work New work by artists-in-residence is published in a special edition of the center's magazine, "Contact Sheet: The Light Work Annual", including an essay commissioned by Light Work. Work by former artists-in-residence is also part of the Light Work collection. To date, more than 360 artists have participated in the program.
Precarious work Precarious work is frequently associated with the following types of employment: "part-time employment, self-employment, fixed-term work, temporary work, on-call work, home-based workers, and telecommuting." All of these forms of employment are related in that they depart from the standard employment relationship (full-time, continuous work with one employer).
Work (physics) The principle of work and kinetic energy (also known as the work–energy principle) states that "the work done by all forces acting on a particle (the work of the resultant force) equals the change in the kinetic energy of the particle." That is, the work "W" done by the resultant force on a particle equals the change in the particle's kinetic energy formula_34,
Derivative work For copyright protection to attach to a later, allegedly derivative work, it must display some originality of its own. It cannot be a rote, uncreative variation on the earlier, underlying work. The latter work must contain sufficient new expression, over and above that embodied in the earlier work for the latter work to satisfy copyright law’s requirement of originality.
Work stealing Work stealing contrasts with "work sharing", another popular scheduling approach for dynamic multithreading, where each work item is scheduled onto a processor when it is spawned. Compared to this approach, work stealing reduces the amount of process migration between processors, because no such migration occurs when all processors have work to do.
Emotion work Emotion work may be defined as the management of one's own feelings, or work done in an effort to maintain a relationship; there is dispute as to whether emotion work is only work done regulating one’s own emotion, or extends to performing the emotional work for others.
