1080i
1080I (a.k.a. FHD and BT.709 ) is an abbreviation referring to a combination of frame resolution and scan type, used in high-definition television (HDTV) and high-definition video . The number "1080" refers to the number of horizontal lines on the screen. The "i" is an abbreviation for "interlaced" ; this indicates that only the odd lines, then the even lines of each frame (each image called a video field) are drawn alternately, so that only half the number of actual image frames are used to produce video. A related display resolution is 1080p
1080p
, which also has 1080 lines of resolution; the "p" refers to progressive scan , which indicates that the lines of resolution for each frame are "drawn" in on the screen sequence. The term assumes a widescreen aspect ratio of 16:9 (a rectangular TV that is wider than it is tall), so the 1080 lines of vertical resolution implies 1920 columns of horizontal resolution, or 1920 pixels × 1080 lines

Coma
COMA is a state of unconsciousness in which a person cannot be awakened; fails to respond normally to painful stimuli, light, or sound; lacks a normal wake-sleep cycle; and does not initiate voluntary actions. A person in a state of coma is described as being comatose. A distinction is made in the medical community between a real coma and a medically induced coma , the former is a result of circumstances beyond the control of the medical community, while the latter is a means by which medical professionals may allow a patient's injuries to heal in a controlled environment. A comatose person exhibits a complete absence of wakefulness and is unable to consciously feel, speak, hear, or move. For a patient to maintain consciousness, two important neurological components must function. The first is the cerebral cortex —the gray matter that forms the outer layer of the brain. The other is a structure located in the brainstem, called reticular activating system (RAS)

As a milder autism spectrum disorder (ASD), it differs from other ASDs by relatively normal language and intelligence . Although not required for diagnosis, physical clumsiness and unusual use of language are common. Signs usually begin before two years old and typically last for a person's entire life. The exact cause of Asperger's is unknown. While it is probably partly inherited , the underlying genetics have not been determined conclusively. Environmental factors are also believed to play a role. Brain imaging has not identified a common underlying problem
