Notice: There is an error in our audio version of the General Class question pool.
G7B04 - Which of the following describes the function of a two input NOR gate. The reader gives the answer as: C – output is low when either or both inputs are low. That answer is not even a choice on the possible answers. The question from the FCC question pool is below.
The security certificate for Handiham.org has been updated, making it compliant with new security standards demanded by web browsers such as Chrome and Firefox. Some users had problems accessing the site in recent months due to a change in security standards, but this has now been fixed and all pages should display properly.
We apologize for any inconvenience. Please let us know if anything does not work.
To Prospective NASA Student Interns with Disabilities,
NASA is looking to increase the number of students with disabilities pursuing science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) careers through our regular internship programs. This is not a program for students with disabilities. We are trying to recruit more students with disabilities into our regular internship programs. Disability means both physical and mental disabilities. Internships are a good way to get real-world experience. However, this is not an employment program. NASA jobs can be found at . Students can apply for Summer 2017 internships now! The deadline for submitting applications will be Wednesday, March 1, 2017. We will begin extending offers to students in mid-to-late January and will continue until all positions are filled. If you would like to subscribe to an announcement-only list about NASA internships for persons with disabilities, please send an E-mail to email@example.com with 'subscribe' in the Subject field, OR by visiting the list page at http://www.freelists.org/list/nasainterns.
We encourage you to apply early because the best opportunities are likely to be filled early. Plus, your likelihood of being selected decreases the longer you wait. Don’t be surprised if you don’t see many internship opportunities in November. They start to appear in numbers in mid-to-late December. You can register for an account anytime at the One Stop Shopping Initiative (OSSI): NASA Internships, Fellowships, and Scholarships (NIFS) at http://intern.nasa.gov/. All material that you wish to have considered must be uploaded to the OSSI website. No documentation will be accepted that is E-mailed or snail mailed.
It’s been almost a year since Pat Tice announced his retirement. I wanted to give you an update on where we are in the process of finding a replacement for Pat and the next steps for the Handiham program.
Courage Kenny Rehabilitation Institute in partnership with the Courage Kenny Foundation are making progress towards a long-term solution for Handihams.
However, the transition has been more complicated than we anticipated and is taking longer to resolve than we envisioned. Please be assured that we are looking at all our options on transitioning to new leadership and ownership of this valuable resource and hope to make an official announcement soon. Our commitment remains to secure the future of Handihams and we thank you for your patience.
Because this remains a discussion in progress, we cannot provide any additional details at this time, but will do so as soon as possible.
