The group recorded for Tad Records early in their career at a point in their career, Syl Johnson brought The Notations to Twinight (Based in Chicago). The 1st million dollar seller was a song produced by Syl Johnson entitled "I'm Still Here". The follow-up single to that was a song entitled "At The Crossroads" written by group member James Stroud. The original members were Clifford Curry, Lasalle Matthews, & James Stroud. The group stayed with Twilight Records until the doors closed.

In 1973 the group joined Curtom / Gemigo Records, a label owned and ran by Curtis Mayfield. The new lineup of the group consisted of Clifford Curry, Lasalle Matthews, Bobby Thomas & Walter Jones. They charted a song entitled "It Only Hurts For a Little While" written by Howard Sanderford. There were some other follow-up songs: It's Alright, This Feeling (written by Chuck Jackson & Marvin Yancy). Also, there was a cut that charted on the Disco Side entitled "Think Before You Stop". There was a song that did very well overseas entitled "SuperPeople". The group stayed there until the doors closed in 1979.

Emmmett Garnder (The group's manager at the time) took the group to Mercury Records with a song entitled "Judy Blue Eyes". They stayed with the label for one year.

Current Members are Clifford Curry, Eric Rapier Bryant & Marzette Griffith. They have a new single entitled "Just Your Love". This particular track was produced by Aundre Miller & Jimmy Hudson.

The Notations just signed a lucrative recording contract with Silent Giant Entertainment in Sherman Oaks, California. (2019)

They have new videos and a couple of EP's of some Old School Classics: "Daddy's Home", "Be Thankful", "I'm So Proud", "I'm Your Puppet", "Sitting in The Park", "I'll Always Love You", "In The Morning".

A single letter by itself refers to a clockwise face rotation in 90 degrees (quarter turn):

A letter followed by an apostrophe means to turn that face counterclockwise 90 degrees:
F' R' U' L' B' D'

A letter with the number 2 after it marks a double turn (180 degrees):
F2 R2 U2 L2 B2 D2

An example algorithm R U R' U R U2 R' U
Explained: R U R' U R U2 R' U

There is another commonly used notation where the uppercase means a clockwise and lowercase means a counterclockwise turn, but this is not the official version because for other twisty puzzles the lowercase letter marks a different thing.
e.g. R U r U R U2 r U

Sometimes they mark the inverse rotations with the capital face initial followed by a lowercase i
e.g. Fi means front inverted.

For the beginner's method you just have to know the simple F (front), B (back), R (right), L (left), D (down), U (up) turns but there are more complicated moves for speedcubers which manipulate the middle layer or two layers at the same time or reorient the whole cube.

The interactive widget features a 3D cube to demonstrate the Singmaster notation, but unfortunately this is not yet supported in all browsers. If your computer can't render this HTML5 Rubik's Cube properly please see the one in the box below.

Tempo and duration

The tempo mark is a sign that lies outside the staff. It appears above and may be a precise fixing of one duration (“♩ = 120 MM” means that the quarter note lasts 1 /120 of a minute, or one-half second), or it may be an approximate verbal indication setting tempo by reference to accepted conventions (allegro, or quickly moderato, or moderate speed etc.).

Staff notation is well adapted to two fundamental aspects of Western music: harmony and rhythm. For harmony, note symbols can easily be placed vertically together on a single stem, and these notes need not be all of the same duration or more than one stem may be used to indicate multiple melodic lines in the musical texture. For rhythm, the existence of an underlying regular pulse, or stress, must be indicated. This is achieved by two devices: the bar line and the time signature. The bar line primarily indicates a point of main stress. Bar lines are usually equally spaced as to duration, though there are numerous exceptions. A time signature indicates, first, the duration of the space between two bar lines (a measure, or bar) and, second, the subsidiary stress patterns within that space. A supplementary system for indicating stress is the device of linking successive notes together by beaming, or stroking. Two eighth notes may be linked together as shown in (a) four sixteenth notes (b) or a mixed group of values (c):

The implication of such grouping is generally that the first note carries a stress. Beaming thus may be used either to reinforce the stress patterns of the time signature (the metre) or to contradict it and set up a cross rhythm.

Physical ER diagram symbols

The physical data model is the most granular level of entity-relationship diagrams, and represents the process of adding information to the database. Physical ER models show all table structures, including column name, column data type, column constraints, primary key, foreign key, and relationships between tables.

As shown below, tables are another way of representing entities. The key parts of Entity-relationship Tables are:


Fields represent the portion of a table that establish the attributes of the entity. Attributes are typically thought of as columns in the database that the ERD models.

In the image above, InterestRate and LoanAmount are both attributes of the entity that are contained as fields.

Keys are one way to categorize attributes. ER diagrams help users to model their databases by using various tables that ensure that the database is organized, efficient, and fast. Keys are used to link various tables in a database to each other in the most efficient way possible.

Primary Keys

Primary keys are an attribute or combination of attributes that uniquely identifies one and only one instance of an entity.

Foreign Keys

Foreign keys are created any time an attribute relates to another entity in a one-to-one or one-to-many relationship.

Each car can only be financed by one bank, therefore the primary key BankId from the Bank table is used as the foreign key FinancedBy in the Car table. This BankID is able to be used as the foreign key for multiple cars.


Types refer to the type of data in the corresponding field in a table. Types can also refer to entity types, which describe the composition of an entity e.g., a book's entity types are author, title, and published date.

Options include gauchos, palazzo pants, chinos, and more. Many of these garments also feature elastic waistbands for a more comfortable fit. Other categories are a little more limited, but you can find some shorts, vests, leggings, and even maternity clothes.

Our rating

For more than three decades, Notations has been committed to manufacturing high-quality clothing for women. The brand's apparel sticks to fairly traditional cuts that tend to be flowing rather than form-fitting. It's easy, therefore, to look good in Notations clothing regardless of your body type. Since it skews a little more toward an older demographic, younger consumers might not immediately fall in love with the brand, but Notations offers some options to appeal to almost any taste. The clothes are also idea for buying via consignment because of the mission to avoid designs that are too "trendy" in favor of garments that won't go out of style. We give Notations 4 stars out of 5.

Numpad notation refers to the use of numbers for directional inputs, meaning that movement inputs are listed down as numbers from the numpad on a keyboard.

Numpad notation is not hard to learn. It might be difficult to remember at first but once learned it is the fastest and easiest way to write down any combos, moves or techniques into text form.   

Numpad notation applies for all control layouts. Stick, pad or keyboard. The actual buttons you use for movement do not matter, as long as they correspond to a direction. 

All notations are written in a way that the character is facing right and on the left side of the screen, EVEN IF THE COMBO HAS THE CHARACTER SWITCH SIDES.  

(Example: FORWARD (6) DOES NOT BECOME BACKWARDS (4) when on the right side of the screen and facing left)

Notations Inc. settles $1 million civil suit for falsifying invoices

NEW YORK &mdash Pursuant to an investigation led by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) New York, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), Notations, Inc. (Notations), a garment wholesaler based in Warminster, Pennsylvania, with a showroom in New York, has settled civil fraud claims brought under the False Claims Act.

As alleged in the complaint, Notations repeatedly ignored warning signs that its business partner, which imported garments from China, was engaged in a scheme to underpay customs duties owed on the imported garments it sold to Notations. Pursuant to the settlement, Notations admits and accepts responsibility for failing to act in response to indications of fraudulent conduct, agrees to pay $1 million in damages, and agrees to implement measures designed to prevent future fraud by Notations or its business partners.

&ldquoAs global supply chains grow more complex, it is important for American businesses to know their suppliers and be confident of their integrity. The outcome of this case is a testament to the dedication of our partners in the United States Attorney&rsquos Office, Homeland Security Investigations, and the men and women of CBP in enforcing our nation&rsquos trade laws and holding accountable those perpetrating this type of fraud,&rdquo said CBP Acting Director Leon Hayward.

As alleged in the complaint-in-intervention filed last year, Yingshun Garments, Inc. (Yinghsun), an importer of women&rsquos apparel manufactured in China, and Import Global Designs Inc. (Import Global) and Olgrem, LLC (&ldquoOlgrem&rdquo), successor entities to Yingshun, and Marie Rogers, an owner and/or officer of each entity, engaged in a double-invoice scheme whereby Yingshun (and later Import Global and Olgrem) presented false and fraudulent invoices to CBP, showing prices for imported garments that were discounted by 75 percent or more, for the purpose of avoiding customs duties on the garments. Notations, which was Yingshun&rsquos biggest customer, aided the fraudulent scheme by ignoring warning signs that Yingshun&rsquos irregular business practices were highly suggestive of fraud.

As part of the settlement, Notations agreed to pay $1 million in damages. Notations also admits and accepts responsibility for its failure to take action in response to multiple warning signs that Yingshun, Import Global and Olgrem were undervaluing their imported goods and therefore paying less in import duties than they should have been paying. Notations also has agreed to implement a written compliance policy which will include measures to educate its employees on identifying red flags for fraud in import transactions, to monitor the conduct of its business partners who act as importers of overseas goods and to report all potentially fraudulent conduct to CBP.


In order to write down sequences of movements on the cube, we use a notation of six main letters:

  • U for Up
  • D for Down
  • L for Left
  • R for Right
  • F for Front
  • B for Back

These letters are used in sequences known as algorithms, and you just perform each letter in the algorithm from left to right. Each letter simply tells you to move that face clockwise by 90 degrees. An apostrophe after a letter (like F', said 'anti-front') tells you to move that face anticlockwise instead, and 2 after a letter (like R2) tells you to move that face by 180 degrees.

If you managed to followed that correctly by turning each face of your cube twice, you should have achieved a rather charming checkerboard pattern. Use this simple algorithm to impress your friends and family!

You may have noticed that you could touch hover over each move in the algorithm to follow along at every step. If you're feeling a bit confident, you can turn this off using the 'Algorithm helper' switch at the bottom of the menu.

It is important to remember that each move should be done as if you were looking directly at the face that the move affects. U and D are clockwise turns for the Up and Down faces, but if you turn the top and bottom layers in the same way while looking at the Up face for both moves, you actually perform U and D'. Use this helpful array of buttons to see how each move affects a solved cube, so you can see how to perform them correctly.
