Special (lighting)
In stage lighting , a SPECIAL is a lighting instrument used for a very specific purpose, rather than as part of a system such as an area light or color wash. It is typically used alone, or at a higher level than the other instruments. They can be used to highlight specific objects onstage, such as pieces of furniture, or to fill gaps not covered by less-specific area lights. They can also create a very specific effect onstage, such as sunlight through a window, or gobo rotation. They are generally wired to their own circuits, dimmers and channels, to be independently controlled. This stagecraft related article is a stub .

Television Special
A TELEVISION SPECIAL is a television program which temporarily interrupts programming normally scheduled for a given time slot . Sometimes, however, the term is given to a telecast of a theatrical film, such as _The Wizard of Oz _, which is not part of a regular television anthology series such as _NBC Saturday Night at the Movies _ (1961–1978). The term originally applied especially to major dramatized presentations of an hour or two which were broadcast during times normally occupied by episodes of one or more weekly television series , thus replacing the series for that specific week. In the 1960s, multi-part specials, over several days in a week, or on the same day for several weeks, evolved from this format, though these were more commonly called miniseries

Discounts And Allowances
DISCOUNTS AND ALLOWANCES are reductions to a basic price of goods or services. They can occur anywhere in the distribution channel , modifying either the manufacturer's list price (determined by the manufacturer and often printed on the package), the retail price (set by the retailer and often attached to the product with a sticker), or the list price (which is quoted to a potential buyer, usually in written form). There are many purposes for discounting, including to increase short-term sales, to move out-of-date stock, to reward valuable customers, to encourage distribution channel members to perform a function, or to otherwise reward behaviors that benefit the discount issuer. Some discounts and allowances are forms of sales promotion

Kit Car
A KIT CAR, also known as a COMPONENT CAR, is an automobile that is available as a set of parts that a manufacturer sells and the buyer then assembles into a functioning car. Usually, many of the major mechanical systems such as the engine and transmission are sourced from donor vehicles or purchased new from other vendors. Kits vary in completeness, consisting of as little as a book of plans, or as much as a complete set with all components included. There is a sub-set of the kit car, commonly referred to as a "re-body", in which a commercially manufactured vehicle has a new (often fiberglass) body put on the running chassis. Most times, the existing drive gear and interior are retained. These kits require less technical knowledge from the builder, and because the chassis and mechanical systems were designed, built, and tested by a major automotive manufacturer, a re-body can lead to a much higher degree of safety and reliability

Intellectual Disability
INTELLECTUAL DISABILITY (ID), also known as GENERAL LEARNING DISABILITY, and MENTAL RETARDATION (MR), is a generalized neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by significantly impaired intellectual and adaptive functioning . It is defined by an IQ score under 70 in addition to deficits in two or more adaptive behaviors that affect everyday, general living. Once focused almost entirely on cognition , the definition now includes both a component relating to mental functioning and one relating to individuals' functional skills in their environments. As a result of this focus on the person's abilities in practice, a person with an unusually low IQ may not be considered to have intellectually disability
