Horus

(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

Horus, asteroid 1,924 (the 1,924th asteroid to be discovered, on September 24, 1960), is approximately 8.2 kilometers in diameter and has an orbital period of 3.6 years. Horus was named after an Egyptian sky-god who in later mythology became the son of Osiris. J. Lee Lehman associates Horus with “far-sightedness and avenging nature.” Jacob Schwartz gives the astrological significance of this asteroid as “synthesis resolving thesis and antithesis (Osiris and Isis); farsightedness.”

Horus

 

in ancient Egyptian mythology, the god of the sun. He was considered to be the protector of the pharaoh’s power, the pharaoh being his earthly embodiment. Horus was originally represented in the form of a soaring bird, whose eyes were the sun and the moon, and, apparently, was god of the sky. Cults of several gods called Horus existed. These gods were revered in various places and had common features. Horus was most often depicted in the form of a falcon (or a man with a falcon’s head) or a winged sun disk. He was considered to be the son of Osiris and Isis and to have defeated his father’s murderer, the evil god Seth, in single combat.

The useful effect of relief from the BEB continued till 10 to 12 weeks.
In order to validate the proposed models, a performance comparison of the throughput of an existing model(BEB model) that used BEB as back-off mechanism with the throughput of the proposed model (EIED model) that used EIED as back-off mechanism was carried out by considering persistent probability, sensing range, transmission range, length of DATA transmission and back-off time.
In comparison to the BEB, EIED enhances throughput and delay performances.
Many papers study the stability of backoff algorithms, including BEB, in terms of their effect on network performance as the offered load increases.
