Currently, the laboratory is working on developing an adaptive third-stream engine that can provide 25 percent fuel efficiency across all levels of throttle--sonic, supersonic and subsonic, Perkins said.

This company can match Pantone and RAL colors, parts and any other color reference a client can send for third-stream

Here is a twain no longer doomed never to meet, and indeed we have not only seen modern dance choreographers working happily in a classical fold, and modern dancers taking classical classes, but also the development of a third-stream
idiom of dance, drawing its vocabulary--and, even more, its spirit--from both the earlier disciplines.
In an aphorism commonly attributed to her, although doubtless uttered by many, Graham said, "There are only two kinds of dance--good and bad" And whether it is a classic ballet or modern dance, or its theatrical, largely Dadaist reinvention as postmodern dance, or its blend of classic and modern into so-called third-stream
dance, there is no doubt that its purity is a great deal less important than its quality or effectiveness.
The repertoire, quite typically, consists of Nureyev's staging of Petipa's La Bayaddre (already seen in Washington) and a novelty, Le Parc, created for the company in 1994 by the third-stream
French choreographer, Angelin Preljocaj.
