Green resigned after he said he faced retaliation for supporting Savage, and Sewell said he was fired for refusing to fire the two officers.<br />Savage argued the state, though not his employer, could be held liable under a third-party retaliatory interference theory for interfering in his relationship with Pokomoke City via Oglesby's alleged actions.
Recently, the interference theory is proposed to analyze uncoupled MAs where the near-field coupling between the two metallic layers is insignificant [9, 21-23].
Finally, the multi-reflection interference theory is used to interpretate the absorption mechanism of the single-band MA.

According to the generalized stress-strength interference theory, the drilling risk modes are as follows: Table 2 Risk types and risk failure mode in the drilling engineering Drilling Drilling complex and Risk complex and accidents mode accidents Kick risk [[rho].sub.d] < [[rho].sub.k] Stick risk Collapse risk [[rho].sub.d] < [[rho].sub.c] Leakage risk Leakage risk [[rho].sub.kcik] > [[rho].sub.L] while killing Drilling complex and Risk accidents mode Kick risk [[rho].sub.d] > [[rho].sub.sk] Collapse risk [[rho].sub.d] > [[rho].sub.L] Leakage risk while killing
On the basis of the analysis of the drilling risk mode, the formation pressure and the drilling fluid density, by the generalized stress-strength interference theory, the drilling risks probability calculation formula are as shown in Table 3.
Based on the generalized stress-strength interference theory and the criterion of the safe drilling fluid window, the risk mode of the drilling complex and accidents was established, meanwhile, the calculation method of the risk probability was given.

The Effect of Sleep on Memory and Learning Year Investigator(s) Major Findings 1924 Jenkins and Dallenbach[29] Sleep increases learning (supports interference theory).
Theories of forgetting include interference, trace decay, and fragmentation or multimodality.[1] The interference theory refers to competition between early and later memories, with the later learning obscured by earlier learning.
Interference theory holds that memory losses are due to the learning of information which is similar in structure or meaning to test information, rather than the learning of unrelated information or the mere passage of time (Klatzky, 1980).
