Radcliffe College
RADCLIFFE COLLEGE was a women\'s liberal arts college in Cambridge, Massachusetts , and functioned as a female coordinate institution for the all-male Harvard College . It was also one of the Seven Sisters colleges , among which it shared with Bryn Mawr College the popular reputation of having a particularly intellectual, literary, and independent-minded student body. Radcliffe conferred Radcliffe College diplomas to undergraduates and graduate students for the first 70 or so years of its history and then joint Harvard-Radcliffe diplomas to undergraduates beginning in 1963. A formal "non-merger merger" agreement with Harvard was signed in 1977, with full integration with Harvard completed in 1999. Today, within Harvard University , Radcliffe's former administrative campus (Radcliffe Yard) is home to the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study , and former Radcliffe housing at the Radcliffe Quadrangle ( Pforzheimer House , Cabot House , and Currier House ) has been incorporated into the Harvard College house system. Under the terms of the 1999 consolidation, the Radcliffe Yard and the Radcliffe Quadrangle retain the "Radcliffe" designation in perpetuity

Retail
RETAIL markets and shops have a very ancient history, dating back to antiquity. Retailing involves the process of selling consumer goods or services to customers through multiple channels of distribution to earn a profit. Retailers satisfy demand identified through a supply chain . Some of the earliest retailers were itinerant peddlers. Modern retailers typically make a variety of strategic level decisions including the type of store , the market to be served, the optimal product assortment, customer service , supporting services and the store's overall market positioning. Once the strategic retail plan is in place, retailers devise the retail mix which includes product, price, place, promotion, personnel and presentation. In the digital age , an increasing number of retailers are seeking to reach broader markets by selling through multiple channels, including both bricks and mortar and online retailing . Digital technologies are also changing the way that consumers pay for goods and services. Retailing support services may also include the provision of credit, delivery services, advisory services, stylist services and a range of other supporting services. The term "retailer" is typically applied where a service provider fills the small orders of a large number of individuals, who are end-users, rather than large orders of a small number of wholesale , corporate or government clientele.

Examples of reconnaissance include patrolling by troops (skirmishers , Long Range Reconnaissance Patrol , U.S. Army Rangers , cavalry scouts , or military intelligence specialists), ships or submarines , manned/unmanned reconnaissance aircraft , satellites , or by setting up covert observation posts.

Often called "recce" (British and Canadian English) or "recon" (American and Australian English), the associated verb is _reconnaître_
