Ten random things: Reader Request Month, day 50

Ten "unique" organizations:

  1. United Community Services Co-op
  2. Century College Orthotic and Prosthetic Student Association
  3. League of United Latin American Citizens
  4. New Jersey League for Nursing
  5. European Union
  6. National Association of Lesbian and Gay Addiction Professionals
  7. Tetra Society of North America
  8. American Council of Engineering Companies Arizona
  9. Open Geospatial Consortium
  10. Smile Foundation India

brooding_soul made three requests this year, all of which were rather vague and open-ended. Which, from my perspective, is a good thing, because it gives me a lot of leeway when the time comes to compose them. This list is in response to brood's request to see a list of "organizations."

As for what makes these organizations unique, I really couldn't say. I just fed that phrase into the search engine and cut-and-pasted the first ten results. Honestly, my guess is that some of them really aren't that unique. I'll grant that there may not be any other groups for college students with prosthetic limbs, but it's hard to imagine that the American Council of Engineering Companies Arizona is really any different from, say, the American Council of Engineering Companies North Dakota.

Incidentally, one of the search results was a paper entitled "Unique organization of the CTX genetic element in Vibrio cholerae O139 strains which reemerged in Calcutta, India, in September 1996," published in the December 1997 edition of the Journal of Clinical Microbiology. Can't stop the Vibrio.
