2. (Military) military active duty

4. Dame of the Order of Australia
[(sense 4) Latin: in the year of the Lord]
Usage: In strict usage, ad is only employed with specific years: he died in 1621 ad, but he died in the 17th century (and not the 17th century ad). Formerly the practice was to write ad preceding the date (ad 1621), and it is also strictly correct to omit in when ad is used, since this is already contained in the meaning of the Latin anno Domini (in the year of Our Lord), but this is no longer general practice. bc is used with both specific dates and indications of the period: Heraclitus was born about 540 bc; the battle took place in the 4th century bc

ad-

a prefix occurring in verbs or verbal derivatives borrowed from Latin, where it meant “toward” and indicated direction, tendency, or addition: adjoin. For variants before a following consonant, see a-5, ac-, af-, ag-, al-, an-2, ap-1, ar-, as-, at-.
[< Latin ad, ad- (preposition and prefix) to, toward, at, about; c. at1]

-ad1

,
1. a suffix occurring in loanwords from Greek denoting a group or unit comprising a certain number, sometimes of years: myriad; Olympiad; triad.
2. a suffix meaning “derived from,” “related to,” “associated with,” occurring in loanwords from Greek (dryad; oread) and in New Latin coinages on a Greek model (bromeliad; cycad).
3. a suffix used, on the model of Iliad, in the names of epics, speeches, etc., derived from proper names: Dunciad; jeremiad.
[< Greek -ad-, s. of -as]

-ad2

var. of -ade1: ballad; salad.

-ad3

A.D.

or AD,

1. in the year of the Lord; since Christ was born: Charlemagne was born in a.d.742.
(Latin annō Dominī]
2. assembly district.
3. athletic director.
usage: The abbreviation a.d. was orig. placed before a date and is still usu. preferred in edited writing: The Roman conquest of Britain began in a.d.43 (or, sometimes, began a.d.43). The abbreviation b.c. (before Christ) is always placed after a date: Caesar was assassinated in 44 b.c. But by analogy with the position of b.c., a.d. is frequently found after the date in all types of writing: Claudius I lived from 10 b.c.to 54 a.d. This abbreviation may also designate centuries, being placed after the century specified: the second century a.d. Some writers prefer to use c.e. (Common Era) and b.c.e. (Before the Common Era) to avoid the religious overtones of a.d. and b.c.

As George Ade has said, "Anything attached to a wall is liable to be a telephone in Paris." And so, what with poor equipment and red tape, the French system became what it remains to-day, the most conspicuous example of what NOT to do in telephony.
5 November 2018 - UK-based, Middle East and Africa-focused offshore and onshore oil and gas drilling and production services provider ADES International Holding Ltd.
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, and colleagues used adverse event data from the National Electronic Injury Surveillance System and retail pharmacy dispensing data from QuintilesIMS to estimate the frequencies and rates of emergency department visits for antibiotic ADEs in children for 2011 to 2015.
This consideration is payable in a combination of cash and ADES shares.
EFG Hermes was Sole Global Coordinator and Joint Bookrunner for the transaction, which saw shares in ADES, a leading provider of offshore and onshore oil and gas drilling and production services in the Middle East and Africa, admitted to trading on the main market of London Stock Exchange with a standard listing under the stock ticker "ADES."
Data were analyzed according to the following parameters: (i) Frequency of patients developing ADEs during follow-up; (ii) age and sex distribution of reported ADEs; (iii) system wise distribution of reported ADEs; (iv) causality assessment by the WHO-UMC scale and Naranjo's probability score and comparison
Fitch believes the AdeS brand will improve the diversification of KOF's still beverage portfolio, which accounts for 6% of total volumes for the las 12 months as of March 31, 2016.
ADES is expected to attract more 40 exhibitors and 40,000 visitors during its four-day run, Dome Exhibitions, the event organisers, said in a statement on Sunday.
Co-founder of ADES Ayman Abbas said this financial expansion is a milestone for the company.
None of the preventable ADEs was life threatening or fatal, 14% were serious, and 86% were considered significant.
Under-reporting of serious ADEs is part of the problem with reporting authorities actively discouraging reporting of less severe events and those due to known side effects of drugs.
