Term used in evaluation of a casino customer's slot play that represents all coins or credits played, including winnings that subsequently are played and lost. (Example: If a player inserts 20 Euro into a slot, wins 20 Euro on the first spin, and loses on every subsequent spin during a session, he has given the casino 40 Euro worth of "action".)
An act by a landlord, such as raising a resident's rent, seeking to evict a resident, or otherwise punishing a resident because the resident has used the repair and deduct remedy or the rent withholding remedy, or has asserted other resident rights.
(1) Opportunity to act. Example - “You're action, sir” meaning its your turn (2) Bets and raises. Example - “Three spades are on the board and there is a lot of action, someone must have made their flush
(1) Opportunity to act. If a player appears not to realize it's his turn, the dealer will say "Your action, sir." (2) Bets and raises. "If a third heart hits the board and there's a lot of action, you have to assume that somebody has made the flush."
an act by a landlord, such as raising a tenant's rent, seeking to evict a tenant, or otherwise punishing a tenant because the tenant has used the repair and deduct remedy or the rent withholding remedy, or has asserted other tenant rights.
Betting. When a pot has a lot of callers, or lots of raising, it's an "action pot". When a flop comes out with lots of high cards that are typically held by players (such as AKQ), this can be called an "action flop" because it's a flop that's likely to generate a lot of action.
Anytime a customer makes a bet, he has action, unless otherwise stipulated in the sportsbook's betting rules. For instance, baseball wagers typically have “no action” if one of the listed pitchers does not start.
These are exciting poker matches with a lot of action plays. Many times these games have many players involved. The game play is quick and exciting. Bets, raises, calls and folds are constantly being places. The pot is usually large and grows rapidly.
A fold, check, call, bet, or raise. For certain situations, doing something formally connected with the game that conveys information about your hand may also be considered as having taken action. Examples would be showing your cards at the end of the hand, or indicating the number of cards you are taking at draw.
A player's turn to act. A bet, as well as all the calls of that bet. E.g., a player makes a $10 bet, and two other players call, he has $10 action in the pot and received $20 worth of action from the other players.
The opportunity to act. "After Bob raised, the action was on Jim." Also: Bets, raises, and re-raises. "After seeing Jim re-raise him, and then Charlie re-raise again, Bob could barely believe how much action he was getting holding aces."
Betting, raising, and calling. A game with a lot of action is a game in which a lot of money is changing hands. These are good games to seek, because the more money moves, the more opportunity you have to win money.
Betting. If someone says â€œthere has been actionâ€ then they are saying that there has been at least one bet in the hand. Also, the player whose turn it is to act is said to have the action. â€œThe action is on you Paul.
Action means bets. Having action means having a bet. Action has a special meaning for baseball bets: Its means the bet counts even even if there is a change in starting pitchers. If there is a pitcher change accompanied by an odds change, the action bettor will receive the new odds. The default is that the listed pitchers must start; to have action no matter who pitches, you must specify action when you make your bet.
Any betting or the opportunity to bet. So, in a poker context, you might say â€˜the action at the fi nal table was intenseâ€™, or â€˜is it my action?â€™ (meaning â€˜is it my turn to act?â€™). If youâ€™re always betting and raising, you might get known as an â€˜action playerâ€™.
To give action is to put money into the pot when someone else should be expected to win the hand. To receive action is to have someone else put money into the pot when you expect to win the hand. It's better to receive than to give.
To raise, reraise, check, fold, call etc constitutes action. The dealer may say, "There was no action", meaning no one has called, folded, raised etc. Action also means there is a lot of betting and raising going on.
The placing of money into the pot. A table with a lot of action is one at which there are a lot of bets, raises, and re-raises - in other words, betting action. In most cardrooms, verbal comments like "I raise" are binding, and are therefore said to constitute action.
general gambling term referring to the total amount of money wagered within a specific period of time. For example, ten bets of $20.00 each sum up to $200.00 of action. The term action typically refers to any kind of wager. It may also be used in much the same way as a movie director uses it. For example, if a player appears to be unaware that it is his/er turn to play, the dealer may say, "Your action, sir/maâ€™am."
The total amount of money a player bets in a game, during a specific period of time. A player buys in for $1000 at the Blackjack table and starts betting. The player alternates between wins and losses, and after an hour he has made bets totaling $2500, including double and splits. Then he gets up from the table with $500 in chips left, which he cashes for money at the cashier. The player's buy-in of $1000 represents the Drop for the casino, the $2500 of his Action represents the Handle for the casino and his loss of $500 represents the Win for the casino. [See Drop. See Handle. See Win.
Where two or more players become involved in a hand, there is action. If one player raised and the table folded, he would have received no 'action' for his bet. A lot of players betting would be 'heavy action'.
(a) Can be used as a general term for play. If a player does not realise it's his turn, the dealer says "Your action, sir." (b) Used also during bets and raises. "If a third heart hits the board and there's a lot of action, you have to assume that somebody has made the flush."
Some Things say "Action: [do something]" - this is simply shorthand for "Instead of playing an Action, the Player who controls this card may [do something]." (The Thing card remains in play.) Note that this counts as an Action for all relevant purposes (a card which negated Actions could also negate an "instead-of" effect, for instance). Example: "Action: Draw two cards."
In Project Builder, a command string supplied either by Project Builder or by the user that applies to files of a given type or types. An action is not restricted to a single file type; for example, if the action "Compile" is defined for both forms and C source files, selecting the menu item Compile Project will compile all .FMB and . files using the appropriate tools. See also: pre-defined action, user-defined action.
the action refers to how close the strings lie to the fretboard. If the action is low (the strings are very close the fretboard) then the strings knocking against the frets may produce a rattling noise. If, on the other hand, the action is high then the strings have to be pressed down further which make the guitar harder to play.
How far the strings are from the fretboard. "Low action" means the strings are very close to the frets. "High action" means they're farther away. Low action makes a guitar easier to play, but if the strings are too close to the frets, they'll touch the frets when they vibrate, causing fret buzz.
The operation as a piano's keys and hammers against its strings. The complete mechanism which, when the piano keys are struck, causes the hammers to strike the strings of the instrument and provides for the dampening of the sound when the keys are released.
The mechanism used to trigger a sound when you play a key on a keyboard. An instrument's action greatly affects how it feels to play. The action in a weighted electronic keyboard feels more like an acoustic piano's; the action in an unweighted keyboard feels more like an organ's.
the distance of the strings from the playing surface of the fingerboard; thus, "high" action means the strings are raised farther away from the fingerboard, and "low" action means they're closer to the fingerboard; qualitatively, "good action" is a matter of personal preference, but, generally speaking, lower action is easier to play.
The ability of a musical instrument to respond to a player's technique, which depends on many different factors according to the instrument. Guitar action is largely determined by the height of the strings from the finger board and may therefore be 'high' or 'low'. Keyboard action refers to the degree of sensitivity of the keyboard to the player's touch; touch-sensitive synthesizers, for example, react to the velocity and pressure of a player's hands for different effects such as crescendo and vibrato . Piano action describes the reaction of the mechanical parts of the piano to the player's touch.
Describes the hieght of the strings above the tops of the frets. These would be term like "high action", and "low action". It can also describe the entire playing feel of an instrument. These would be term like "good action", and "easy action". - Category: Equipment and Gear
Punchline's first full-length album on Fueled by Ramen Records has notably hopeful and positive lyrics compared to bands with a similar fanbase, in the vein of pop punk and so-called 'emo' of the late 1990's and early 2000's. Steve Soboslai (guitar), Paul Menotiades (guitar), and Chris Fafalios (bass) split vocals on the album, most going to Steve, Paul, and Chris repectively. While PJ Caruso (drums) does not sing on the album, the rhythm section is a major driving force of the majority of songs on "Action."
The action of a stringed instrument is the distance between the fingerboard and the string, which determines how easy it is to sound notes when pressure is applied with the finger tips. Generally a low action is considered to be more playable, due to the lower amount of pressure needed to press the string to the fingerboard. However, if the action is set too low the instrument could suffer from an unwanted buzzing noise (on fretted instruments, this is known as fret buzz).
The action of a piano is the mechanical assembly which translates the depression of the piano keys into a felt hammer striking the strings. The illustration to the right is of a circa 1907 Wessell, Nickel and Gross Upright action; the parts are listed below.
The mechanism by which the firearm operates. Common actions include bolt and lever (such as used with rifles) pump action (often found on shotguns) and double and single action (used on pistols and revolvers)
The part of a gun that loads and fires cartridges and ejects empty cases. In handguns there are three types: single action revolvers, double action revolvers, and semi-automatic pistols. In rifles and shotguns there are five types of actions: semi-automatic, bolt, break, pump, and lever.
The mechanism of a firearm by which it is loaded, locked, fired and unloaded. In a revolver, usually means the cylinder. In semi-automatic pistols it usually refers to the slide. In rifles, refers to the bolt mechanism.
The action of a firearm refers to the physical parts that control loading and firing. A reference to the action, as a noun rather than an adjective, refers to the assembly that makes up the fire control group: trigger, sear, bolt, firing pin and other associated parts of the gun's lockwork. When together, these parts are an action assembly.
A suit or process, by which a demand is made of a right in a court of justice; in a broad sense, a judicial proceeding for the enforcement or protection of a right, the redress or prevention of a wrong, or the punishment of a public offense.
A lawsuit or an application made in the courts. For example, when you apply to the court for a change in child support or to gain custody of a child, you are taking a legal action. You may take a legal action to enforce your rights or to correct a wrong done to you by another person. When an action is started, the court assigns it an action number. This number is then used in all of the documents related to the action filed with the court. See Rules of Court: Rules 6-12 and Rule 563.
a civil judicial proceeding whereby one party prosecutes another for a wrong done or for protection of a right or prevention of a wrong; requires service of process on adversary party or potentially adversary party

An HP VUE construct used to provide a user interface for applications and other commands. You can create actions to start applications or execute commands. Actions are defined in a database of files located along the database search path.
It is the name of the processing command; it is specified after the component name where the result will end up. E.g., zeroing image sample.img is achieved by issuing: sample.img clear Actions are coded in C-language with some extended directives or as special tcl-procedures. It is mandatory that actions modify only the invoking component, so that dangerous side-effects can be avoided.
A desktop construct that provides a method for running applications, executing commands, and other activities such as printing, removing files, and changing directories. Actions are defined in a database of configuration files.

The horse's way of travel, how he moves his legs and degree of animation. The degree of flexion of the joints of the legs during movement; also reflected in head, neck, and tail carriage. High, snappy action is desired in some classes while easy, ground-covering action is the goal in other classes.
Movement (usually of skin or bone) caused by muscle contractions. Group Actions: Most movements occur when several skeletal muscles act in groups, as opposed to individually. Most skeletal muscles are arranged at joints, in opposing pairs. The muscle that causes an action is referred to as the prime mover or agonist (= leader). Often another muscle, called the antagonist (ant = against), relaxes while the prime mover contracts. Most movements also involve muscles called synergists, which help the prime mover function more efficiently by reducing unnecessary movement. Some muscles in a group also act as fixators, stabilizing the origin of the prime mover so that the prime mover can act more efficiently. Under different conditions and depending on the movement, many muscles act at various times as prime movers, antagonists, synergists, or fixators.
Action - describes the style (form) that the legs exhibit during the time period when they are moving above the ground/in the air in reference to the height (elevation) and roominess of the gait. The action depends on the structure of the legs, on the relative length ratio of the bones and the carrying time period of the hind leg. Various breeds and kinds of horses have their own special/certain action – high, low, flat etc. (carriage horse has a high action as against the racehorse has low and flat action.
All levels of League can take a variety of actions to support their programs: lobbying legislatures in support or opposition to legislation, monitoring programs, surveying the public, writing op ed pieces, etc.

A process or condition of acting or moving, as opposed to rest; the doing of something; exertion of power or force, as when one body acts on another; the effect of power exerted on one body by another; agency; activity; operation; as, the action of heat; a man of action.
For every action there is an opposite and equal reaction. Water pushes back equal to the energy exerted against it. With every movement, water's natural resistance provides a time-efficient workout while toning the muscle pairs equally. In water, the amount of resistance can be instantly adjusted by the individual's own exertion to be as challenging or light as desired. Couples can workout together-each at their own pace-and water fittness classes can accommodate a wide range of skills and fitntness levels.
A specific task the HAM will perform under certain associated conditions. Examples of actions include executing an external process, restarting a process that has died, sending a signal or pulse notification, etc.
A term to describe the flex of a fly rod. This is determined by how dense the graphite composite in the rod is. A fast-action rod feels stiff except near the top where it flexes, a medium action will flex in the middle and a slow rod flexes all the way to the cork grip.
Where most of the initial flex in a rod blank takes place. Fast Action rods will flex mostly in the upper 1/3rd of their length. Moderate Action rods in the upper 1/2 of their length. Slow Action rods flex along their entire length. *See also "Progressive Action."
The specification of an executable statement that forms an abstraction of a computational procedure. An action typically results in a change in the state of the system, and can be realized by sending a message to an object or modifying a link or a value of an attribute. .
something that executes and may change the state of one or more instances of one or more Types. An Action has a protocol and one or more methods that implement it. An Action cannot be constrained; only Types (things that have persistent instances) can be constrained. The enabling and execution of an Action can be controlled through Business Rules. An Action is permitted to proceed once/if conditions are satisfied.
A series of awk statements attached to a rule. If the rule pattern matches an input record, the awk language executes the rule action. Actions are always enclosed in curly braces. See section Overview of Actions.

In physics, the action is an integral quantity that is used to determine the evolution of a physical system between two defined states using the calculus of variations. Several different definitions of the action are in common use in physics, as described below. The action is usually an integral over time, but may be integrated over spatial variables as well (for action pertaining to fields); in still other cases, the action is integrated along the path followed by the physical system.
