An example is the word Angel. In Nato phonetics it is "Alpha November Golf Echo Lima". Oasis is "Oscar Alpha Sierra India Sierra."
NCC - Is a Network Control Center.
Neil V. Murray Ph.D. - Dr. Murray received his doctorate from Syracuse University. He has contributed many great ideas to the field of computer science amoungst them are his studies in automated deduction, and negation normal form formulas. Professor Murray has accomplished major breakthroughs by using non-traditional deductive techniques such as annotated, multiple-valued and fuzzy logics.
