Makers of digital printers play lots of games with their resolution. The "dots" they speak of (when they talk about a 720 dpi resolution) are dots of single colour ink. A pixel, on the other hand, is a dot capable of the full colour range. You need lots of dots to make a specific colour and not look spotty. To render a pixel well can require scores of ink dots. In the end, the goal is a "continuous tone" image at a given number of pixels per inch. Most printers can only simulate continuous or near-continuous tone. (Digital film recorders, or photographic paper recorders, can do near-continuous tone.)

In time, we were able to prevail upon our customer to supply the silicone materials in an unheated, but supposedly cured condition.  We were able to show that surfaces were covered with short-chain dimethyl siloxanes and that heating the materials, especially a silicone sealant used in the structure, caused an outpouring of very short-chain siloxanes which we measured using mass spectroscopy.  Such short-chain siloxanes are highly flammable.  The long-chain siloxanes are resistant to flame, while the short-chain siloxanes readily combust.

The ER waiting room serves as the grounding point for the film, capturing in vivid detail what it means for millions of Americans to live without health insurance. Young victims of gun violence take their turn alongside artists and small business owners who lack insurance. Steel workers, taxi cab drivers and international asylum seekers crowd the halls. The film weaves the stories of several patients – as well as the hospital staff charged with caring for them – as they cope with the complexity of the nation’s public health care system, while weathering the storm of a national recession.
