Definitions for "ACL"
Anterior Cruciate Ligament of the knee. A crosslike ligament attaching the femur to the tibia.
anterior cruciate ligament. the ligament, located in the center of the knee, that controls rotation and forward movement of the tibia (shin bone).
Anterior cruciate ligament. Intra-articular ligament of the knee, attaching on the anterior portion of the tibial plateau extending upwards and posteriorly to the medial aspect of the lateral femoral condyle. Very frequently injured during twisting type sports (e.g. Australian Rules football, soccer), or those that involve rapid deceleration (e.g. netball). Extrinsic trauma also has a large part to play in ACL injuries.
(Short for access control list) - A set of data that informs a computer's operating system which permissions, or access rights, that each user or group has to a specific system object, such as a directory or file. Each object has a unique security attribute that identifies which users have access to it, and the ACL is a list of each object and user access privileges such as read, write or execute.
Anomalous Cerebral Laterality. (1) From a structural perspective — an enlargement of portions of the right cerebral hemisphere and/or diminution of portions of the left cerebral hemisphere, such that standard hemispheric asymmetry ceases to exist and (2) from a functional perspective — a greater than normal participation of the right cerebral hemisphere in functions normally under the purview of the left cerebral hemisphere (notably language and motor control for handedness). Believed to be the result of an anomalously high level, in utero, of the hormone testosterone. See text, Chapter 4. See also, "anomalous," "brain," "cerebrum," "cortex," "corpus callosum," " Less Strongly Lateralized," "temporal lobe" and "testosterone."
Typically comprises of a list of principals, a list of resources , and a list of permissions.

Keywords:  par, volts, brighter, beam, narrow
A 28 volt very narrow beam PAR lamp (used on aircraft) often adapted for use in PAR64 and PAR46 fixtures. ACLs are commonly wired with 4 lamps in series to bring the required voltage of the circuit close to 120 volts. ACL lamps are typically brighter, more intense, and have a higher color temperature than standard PAR lamps. They typically are more expensive and have a shorter lamp life. See Also: Automated Fixture
A PAR-64 with a very narrow beam pattern that operates at 28 volts.
