UASP

(USB Attached SCSI Protocol) A faster protocol for storage drives attached to the computer via USB. USB Versions 1 and 2 provided bulk-only transport (BOT); however, USB 3.0 supports UASP along with Windows and Mac starting with Windows 8 and Mac OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion). The SCSI in the name does not refer to the drives, which are typically SATA, but to the transfer protocol, and most USB 3.0 drive enclosures and docking stations support UASP. See USB, SCSI and SATA.

The crass error of these legislators was to organize a protest in their favor in the Plaza de la ConstituciEn [in Guatemala City], where they provided a forum for hundreds of ex-PAC [members of civil patrols which were responsible for civil war death squads.] Also sacrificed were the prostituted "leaders" of the magisterio, Joviel Acevedo and Nery Barrios, and the Unidad de AcciEn Sindical y Popular (UASP) [Union of Labor and popular Action], who are at the service of Colom and Sandra Torres.
