Revolution \Rev`o*lu"tion\, n. [F. r['e]volution, L. revolutio. See Revolve.]

  1. The act of revolving, or turning round on an axis or a center; the motion of a body round a fixed point or line; rotation; as, the revolution of a wheel, of a top, of the earth on its axis, etc.

  2. Return to a point before occupied, or to a point relatively the same; a rolling back; return; as, revolution in an ellipse or spiral.

    That fear Comes thundering back, with dreadful revolution, On my defenseless head.

  3. The space measured by the regular return of a revolving body; the period made by the regular recurrence of a measure of time, or by a succession of similar events. ``The short revolution of a day.''

  4. (Astron.) The motion of any body, as a planet or satellite, in a curved line or orbit, until it returns to the same point again, or to a point relatively the same; -- designated as the annual, anomalistic, nodical, sidereal, or tropical revolution, according as the point of return or completion has a fixed relation to the year, the anomaly, the nodes, the stars, or the tropics; as, the revolution of the earth about the sun; the revolution of the moon about the earth.

    Note: The term is sometimes applied in astronomy to the motion of a single body, as a planet, about its own axis, but this motion is usually called rotation.

  5. (Geom.) The motion of a point, line, or surface about a point or line as its center or axis, in such a manner that a moving point generates a curve, a moving line a surface (called a surface of revolution), and a moving surface a solid (called a solid of revolution); as, the revolution of a right-angled triangle about one of its sides generates a cone; the revolution of a semicircle about the diameter generates a sphere.

  6. A total or radical change; as, a revolution in one's circumstances or way of living.

    The ability . . . of the great philosopher speedily produced a complete revolution throughout the department.

  7. (Politics) A fundamental change in political organization, or in a government or constitution; the overthrow or renunciation of one government, and the substitution of another, by the governed. The violence of revolutions is generally proportioned to the degree of the maladministration which has produced them. --Macaulay. Note: When used without qualifying terms, the word is often applied specifically, by way of eminence, to:

    1. The English Revolution in 1689, when William of Orange and Mary became the reigning sovereigns, in place of James II.

    2. The American Revolution, beginning in 1775, by which the English colonies, since known as the United States, secured their independence.

    3. The revolution in France in 1789, commonly called the French Revolution, the subsequent revolutions in that country being designated by their dates, as the Revolution of 1830, of 1848, etc.

Revolution (Beatles song)

"Revolution" is a song by the Beatles, written by John Lennon and credited to Lennon–McCartney. Two versions of the song were recorded in 1968: a hard rock version, released as the B-side of the " Hey Jude" single, and a slower, bluesier arrangement (titled "Revolution 1") for the Beatles' self-titled double album, commonly known as "the White Album". Although the single version was issued first, it was recorded several weeks after "Revolution 1", as a re-make specifically intended for release as a single. A third connected piece, written by Lennon, is the experimental track " Revolution 9", based on the latter parts of the same performance that produced "Revolution 1", and which also appears on the White Album.

Inspired by political protests in early 1968, Lennon's lyrics expressed doubt in regard to some of the tactics. When the single version was released in August, the political left viewed it as betraying their cause. The release of the album version in November indicated Lennon's uncertainty about destructive change, with the phrase "count me out" recorded differently as "count me out, in". In 1987, the song became the first Beatles recording to be licensed for a television commercial, which prompted a lawsuit from the surviving members of the group.

In the same year Nina Simone recorded her single " Revolution" with some structural similarities (some lyrics are also the same) to the Beatles' song, but credited to her and Weldon Irvine.

Revolution (software platform)

Revolution is a software development environment/multimedia authoring software in the tradition of HyperCard and is based on the MetaCard engine. Its primary focus is on providing a relatively accessible development tool set and scripting language that enable the creation of software programs that run across multiple platforms with little or no code modifications. The Integrated Development Environment (IDE) included with Revolution is built partly on the models created by Bill Atkinson and the original HyperCard team at Apple and subsequently followed by many other software development products, such as Microsoft's Visual Basic. Revolution includes an English language-like scripting language called Transcript, a full programming language superset of the HyperCard's scripting language, HyperTalk.

The higher-grade versions (see Versions, below), allow applications to be compiled to run on more than one platform, including Macintosh (Classic or Mac OS 9, and Mac OS X), Windows and Unix-like systems including Linux. It can also import HyperCard stacks, which require little or no modification unless they use external functions, which generally do not work in Revolution.

Revolution is designed to be an environment where non-programmers feel at ease and programmers feel not too uncomfortable (after getting used to "non-traditional" programming syntax). Like any programming language or development environment, opinions as to the degree to which those aims have been achieved vary greatly.

Revolution (Little Steven album)

Revolution is the fourth solo album by Little Steven released in 1989. The Disciples of Soul were gone in all but name (although former Disciple/ Young Rascals drummer Dino Danelli did the album art), and the music was largely electronic.

Revolution (political group)

Revolution, or Revo, a revolutionary socialist youth organization, was founded in the UK by Workers Power, part of the League for the Fifth International. According to its statutes and manifesto it is organizationally independent from Workers Power, although there are disagreements about the degree of independence (independent members viewing it as subordinate to LFI, LFI arguing that since its international and national councils have sovereignty, it is independent). It has official sections in the United Kingdom, Germany, Sweden, Austria, Czech Republic, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Nepal and the USA.

It was formed in the mid-1990s at the beginning of the anti-capitalist movement in Europe. Participation in the EuroMarches in Amsterdam and support for the Liverpool Dockers strike were amongst its first campaigns. Now the group participates in the anti-capitalist movement and anti-war movements. It has raised the slogan for a Youth International to come out of the European Social Forum and World Social Forum bodies to unite the struggles of young people against globalization and imperialism.

In 2006, following a split in the League for the Fifth International, a part of Revo left the youth organization following disputes on the question of international structures and statutes, the main focus of the group and the concept of building a worker party. The majoritiy of Revo, which supported a more pragmatic approach, centralist constitution and the slogan of the 5th international, elected appropriate candidates for the international delegate conference 2006 in Prague and continues their partnership with the LFI. At the conference, it was decided to cancel the section-status of the Australians (due to small membership), evaluating the past work and to prepare for the next tasks (local groups, G8 mobilization).

A minority of the Revo members, who preferred a focus on the Revolution magazine, called for a federal constitution and a repeal of the links to the LFI, disregarded the outcome of the conference. A week after that conference, the minority formed its own tendency called Independent Revolution or iRevo. After iRevo refused an offer in autumn 2006 of Revolution International Council to remain in the organization, participate in the coordination (Revolution International Council), accept the democratic decision of the rank-and-file and delegate conference, this tendency was expelled by Revo as a part of the organization. The former iRevo-Tendency itself split in 2009.

Revo continues to build an youth organization in Britain, Sweden, Austria and Germany and added sections in USA, Sri Lanka, Nepal and Pakistan as well as projects of forming a left alternative party with the LFI and other supporters as the WASG in Germany, New Anticapitalist Party in France, the left-list in Austria or the 5th International itself.

In 2012, former Revo member Luke Cooper won libel damages of £60,000 after the Daily Mail and Evening Standard falsely claimed that he was a ringleader in planning violent disorder at the occupation of the Conservative Party's headquarters at Millbank during the 2010 UK student protests.

Revolution (Tomorrow song)

"Revolution" is a song performed by the London psychedelic rock group Tomorrow. It was first released on a single in the U.K. by Parlophone in September 1967 and later on the group's self-titled album Tomorrow in February 1968. The song is credited to Keith Alan Hopkins (better known as Keith West) and Steve Howe. Though Tomorrow's song was not a hit, the group was well known to insiders of the London music scene.

Tomorrow's September 1967 single was likely the prime inspiration for the John Lennon song " Revolution" which was released a year later. Tomorrow's tongue in cheek lyric "Have your own little revolution, NOW!" sounds like it prompted Lennon's response "You say you want a revolution."

Several different recordings of the song have been released by Tomorrow. The 1999 CD re-issue of their album also includes a previously unreleased studio demo recording of the song. This version does not have the orchestral overdubs but instead has some great phasing effects not heard in the later recording. Both were recorded at EMI's legendary Abbey Road Studios in London in mid 1967. Tomorrow performed this song for John Peel's radio show on the BBC and there is also a live recording on the album 50 Minute Technicolor Dream.

Revolution (Judas Priest song)

"Revolution" is a song on the album Angel of Retribution, by the heavy metal band Judas Priest. It was their first single since 1992's "Night Crawler" to enter in the United States charts. It reached #23 in the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart.

According to the producer Roy Z:

"The bass intro to 'Revolution' is actually from a cassette tape the band recorded back in the 1970s. We loaded the riff into Pro Tools and built the rest of the song around it. We went for a raw, modern '70s vibe. It is a wide-open rock and roll song."

K.K. Downing said yet that:

"I'm proud of the fact that we really worked hard. The album cover, the message about peoples' perceptions of rock and metal - 'Revolution' with Rob singing, 'Time to change' on the outro - youngsters with aspirations to pick up a guitar, they're listening to the radio thinking, 'Well, that is what I need to be doing..."

It was well received by the fans and it is still played live since its release.

The song has a similar riff to " Mountain Song", by Jane's Addiction.
