Lining (sewing)
In sewing and tailoring , a LINING is an inner layer of fabric , fur , or other material inserted into clothing , hats , luggage , curtains , handbags and similar items. Linings provide a neat inside finish and conceal interfacing , padding, the raw edges of seams , and other construction details. A lining reduces the wearing strain on clothing, extending the useful life of the lined garment. A smooth lining allows a coat or jacket to slip on over other clothing easily, and linings add warmth to cold-weather wear. Linings are typically made of solid colors to coordinate with the garment fabric , but patterned and contrasting-colored linings are also used. Designer Madeleine Vionnet
Madeleine Vionnet
introduced the ensemble in which the coat was lined in the fabric used for the dress worn with it, and this notion remains a characteristic of the Chanel

suit, which often features a lining and blouse of the same fabric. In tailoring, home sewing, and ready-to-wear clothing construction, linings are usually completed as a unit before being fitted into the garment shell. In haute couture , the sleeves and body are usually lined separately before assembly

Lining Of Paintings
The LINING OF PAINTINGS is a process of restoration used to strengthen, flatten or consolidate oil or tempera paintings on canvas by attaching a new canvas to the back of the existing one.The process is sometimes referred to as relining. In cases of extreme decay, the original canvas may be completely removed and replaced. PURPOSEThe purpose of lining a painting is to flatten or consolidate its surface or strengthen its support by attaching a new canvas to the back of the existing one. The process has sometimes been referred to as relining. In cases of extreme decay, the original layer canvas may be completely removed, and the new canvas fixed to the priming on the reverse of the paint layer. Lining has been very widely practiced, and during the 19th century, some painters had their works lined immediately after, or sometimes even before, completion. There have been some doubts concerning its benefits more recently, especially since the Greenwich Comparative Lining Conference of 1974. METHODThe procedure as carried out in the 19th century is described by Theodore Henry Fielding in his Knowledge and Restoration of Old Paintings (1847). The picture was removed from the stretcher and laid on a flat surface. The edges of the canvas were trimmed, leaving the original support smaller than the new lining. A sheet of paper covered in thin paste was laid on the surface of the painting, which was then placed face-down on a board or table

Brake Lining
BRAKE LININGS are the consumable surfaces in brake systems, such as drum brakes and disc brakes used in transport vehicles. CONTENTS * 1 History * 2 Structure and function * 3 Maintenance * 4 Cataloguing * 5 References HISTORYBrake linings were invented by Bertha Benz (the wife of Karl Benz who invented the first patented automobile) during her historic first long-distance car trip in the world in August 1888. The first asbestos brake linings were developed in 1908 by Herbert Frood. Although Frood was the first to implement the use of asbestos brake linings, the heat dissipation properties of the fibres were tested by various scientists, including well known materials chemist Dr Gwilym Price, who did most of his research and testing from Cambridge , United Kingdom and various Cambridge-funded institutes. STRUCTURE AND FUNCTIONBrake linings are composed of a relatively soft but tough and heat-resistant material with a high coefficient of dynamic friction (and ideally an identical coefficient of static friction) typically mounted to a solid metal backing using high-temperature adhesives or rivets. The complete assembly (including lining and backing) is then often called a brake pad or brake shoe . The dynamic friction coefficient "µ" for most standard brake pads is usually in the range of 0.35 to 0.42. This means that a force of 1000 Newtons on the pad will give a resulting brake force close to 400 Newtons

Product Lining
In marketing jargon, PRODUCT LINING is offering several related products for sale individually. Unlike product bundling , where several products are combined into one group, which is then offered for sale as a units, product lining involves offering the products for sale separately. A line can comprise related products of various sizes, types, colors, qualities, or prices. Line depth refers to the number of subcategories a category has. Line consistency refers to how closely related the products that make up the line are. Line vulnerability refers to the percentage of sales or profits that are derived from only a few products in the line. Product lining is a marketing strategy that companies adopt which they offer products in the same product line for sale individually (Krishnamurthi, 2007). Product line is a group of related products defined by their functions and customer market, forming a “line" or category (Neubauer, Steffen & Margaria, 2003). For instance, the variety of coffees that are offered at a café is one of its product lines and it could consist of flat white, cappuccinos, short black, lattes, mochas and etc. Alternatively, Product line of juices and pastries can also be found at a café

Lining's most notable appearance was in the Motolite International Nine-ball Tournament in 2000, where he finished second to Francisco Bustamante . Prior to that final, Lining bested Efren Reyes in the quarter-finals. At the 2002 Busan Asian Games , Lining and Bustamante won the gold medal at the nine-ball doubles event. From there, he has only made small appearances in later events and had some success, especially in events that were held in Japan.

Lining (steamboat)
LINING was a method used by steamboats to move up river through rapids. Lining could also be used to lower steamboats through otherwise impassible falls. CONTENTS * 1 Technique * 2 Use on the Willamette River * 3 Hazards * 4 Notes * 5 References TECHNIQUELining involved running a rope, called a line or a steel cable to a secure point on shore, typically a large tree or a bolt specially set in a rock, and then wrapping the cable around a steam-powered winch on the boat. The winch would then crank in the cable, if the vessel was going upstream, or gradually let out the cable, if the vessel was headed downstream. USE ON THE WILLAMETTE RIVERAlong the Willamette River, in the first decades of the 1900s, the most dangerous obstacles to navigation were Willamette Falls and the Clackamas Rapids. Since 1873 locks at Oregon allowed navigation around Willamette Falls, but as late as 1907, lining was still required to pass the Clackamas Rapids, which were located north of Oregon City, near the mouth of the Clackamas River . HAZARDSLining was dangerous, as it was only the single cable that prevented the vessel from being washed downstream and likely wrecked. Any use of a cable on board a vessel was also hazardous to the crew. On October 15, 1907, at 8:30 am, while Oregona was lining through Clackamas Rapids, the lining cable became tangled in the sternwheel of a nearby steamer, the Ruth . A deckhand on Oregona, Virgil K

Lining Figures
TEXT FIGURES (also known as NON-LINING, LOWERCASE, OLD STYLE, RANGING, HANGING, MEDIEVAL, BILLING, or ANTIQUE figures or numerals) are numerals typeset with varying heights in a fashion that resembles a typical line of running text, hence the name. They are contrasted with LINING figures (also called TITLING or MODERN figures), which are the same height as upper-case letters. CONTENTS * 1 Design * 2 History * 3 See also * 4 References * 5 Works cited * 6 External links DESIGNIn text figures, the shape and positioning of the numerals vary as those of lowercase letters do. In the most common scheme, 0 , 1 , and 2 are of x-height , having neither ascenders nor descenders; 6 and 8 have ascenders; and 3 , 4 , 5 , 7 , and 9 have descenders. Other schemes exist; for example, the types cut by the Didot family of punchcutters and typographers in France
France
between the late 18th and early 19th centuries typically had an ascending 3, a form preserved in some later French typefaces. A few other typefaces used different arrangements. Sometimes the stress of the '0' is made different from a letter 'o' in some way, although many fonts do not do this. High-quality typesetting generally prefers text figures in body text : they integrate better with lowercase letters and small capitals , unlike runs of lining figures

The 1983 ATLANTIC HURRICANE SEASON was the least active Atlantic hurricane season in 53 years. Although the season begins by convention on June 1, there were no tropical depressions until July 23, and only four of the season's seven depressions became tropical storms . Tropical Depression Three became Hurricane Alicia_(satellite image pictured)_ on August 17 and made landfall in Texas the next day, breaking thousands of glass windows in Houston's skyscrapers, killing 22 people and causing $1.7 billion in damage. The storm that became Hurricane Barry formed on August 25, crossed Florida, and made landfall near Brownsville, Texas
