Ana (programming language)
In contexts of solar physics and data analysis, Ana is a somewhat whimsically named computer language that is designed for array processing and image data analysis. The name is an acronym for "A Non Acronym". Ana began as a fork of an early version of IDL, but has diverged significantly since then.
It is in common use at the Lockheed-Martin Space Applications Laboratory and at institutions that analyze data from the TRACE spacecraft, but is not commonly used elsewhere. Ana appears to be intended as free software though it is not distributed under a recognized FOSS license. It is available as source code, primarily through the Solarsoft distribution system.
The most commonly used application written in Ana is the TRACE image browser, which is designed for browsing and viewing time-lapse movies collected by TRACE, SOHO, Yohkoh, and other observatories.

Ana (search dog)
Ana (July 4, 1995 - November 12, 2008) was a golden retriever search and rescue dog, known for having been the first graduate of the Search Dog Foundation's training program. Ana was one of the first search dogs to be deployed to the site of the World Trade Center.
Ana was born to a backyard breeder, and proved to be too active to work as an assistance dog. Bonnie Bergin, the Executive Director of the Assistance Dog Institute, decided that Ana might be better suited as a search and rescue dog, and suggested her to Wilma Melville, the head of the Search Dog Foundation. Ana was trained at a kennel in Gilroy, California, and, upon graduation, she was the first nationally certified Fire Department Disaster Search Canine and the first dog certified by the Search Dog Foundation. 1 2
Ana was assigned to the Sacramento, California Fire Department, where she was paired with fire captain Rick Lee.
Besides the World Trade Center search, Ana and Captain Lee were involved in several other searches, including the sites of collapsed buildings in Sacramento, 3 and the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. 4
She was featured on a report on Animal Planet, and on the National Geographic Channel's Dogs with Jobs. 5
Ana died of cancer in Captain Lee's arms.
Ana is a solo album by American guitarist Ralph Towner recorded in 1996 and released on the ECM label.

Usage examples of "ana".
My God, thought Ana, was having a fabulous pair of breasts a prerequisite in this city?
In Bideford Ana would have been expected to give a little of herself back to the assistant, whether she liked it or not, just so as not to be thought rude.
The fabric of his trousers was silky and thin, and Ana could clearly see the outline of a pair of unappetiz-ingly small briefs digging into his fleshy buttocks.
Shapes loomed out of the overcast shadows at Ana, and there was an odd smell in the room.
Ana, and for the rest of her schooldays Ana was commonly known as One-Hit-Wonder Wills.
This was much more the sort of room Ana had expected Bee to have been living in.
Although Bee was her half sister, Ana tended to think of her as more of a sixteenth sister, or a sixty-fourth sister, or even, to put it decimally, a nought-point-nought-nought-nought-one-percent sister.
But on the other hand, Ana had always found Bee frus-tratingly shallow and occasionally downright cruel.
Bee grimaced at her sideways and Ana felt herself die a little inside.
And then Bee turned to talk to Gay, her interaction with Ana officially over.
She picked it up, and as she brought it to her lips Ana noticed her hands shaking.
The conversation between Bee and Gay was becoming predictably fractious, and Ana pulled herself from her daydreams.
For a while the conversation had been lively and friendly, and Ana had sat on her barstool, sipping her Coke and basking in the new ambiance.
But as the car disappeared into the exit tunnel and Bee thought she was out of view, Ana saw her drop her hand, break off her smile, and let her shoulders slump forward before turning and heading slowly toward the lifts.
Bee did send Ana a card, however, with a photograph of a lily on the front.
