En route from TRK to RHV recently in Centurion 7RR, I found myself on the same center frequency as Bonanza -- 5JJ! I was really tempted to tell center, "7 Romeo Romeo would like to connect with 5 Juliet Juliet." But I didn't want to start a feud, so I bit my tongue and said nothing. -- Rick Tavan

Working with researchers at Zhejiang University in China, Changxi Zheng, assistant professor of computer science at Columbia Engineering, has developed a technique that enables hydrographic printing, a widely used industrial method for transferring color inks on a thin film to the surface of manufactured 3D objects, to color these surfaces with the most precise alignment ever attained. Using a new computational method they developed to simulate the printing process, Zheng and his team have designed a model that predicts color film distortion during hydrographic immersion, and uses it to generate a colored film that guarantees exact alignment of the surface textures to the object. The research will be presented at SIGGRAPH 2015, August 9 to 13, in Los Angeles.

I was looking at Zend documentation and they clearly mention that the private / protected functions or methods should start with an underscore.
