Apprehending joule thieves with cinder

Stephen M. Rumble, Ryan Stutsman, Philip Levis, David Mazières, Nickolai Zeldovich
2010 Computer communication review  
We argue for a new operating system, called Cinder, which builds on top of the HiStar OS. Cinder's energy awareness is based on hierarchical capacitors and task profiles.  ...  In Cinder, a capacitor is modeled after its real-world electrical counterpart, but with a special distinction: it contains rights to request consumption of joules, rather than reservations for actual joules  ...  As with all objects in Cinder, capacitors must reside in some container and, when all references to the capacitor are deleted, the capacitor must be garbage collected as well.  ...

Notes on the Psychology of Recreation

G. Stanley Hall
1922 The Pedagogical Seminary  
A loose wheel the French call gaie, and the earth in drought is Joule. Laughter is or should be disinterested, with no end in itself.  ...  Great statesmen have sometimes apprehended this necessity but only inadequately, and only genetic psychology can fully explain it.  ...
