The master number is 10117 whilst the label number is 6412. From January 1967 a pressing plant code was added to the master numbers: Like RCA and Capitol, Columbia's pressing plants and mastering services were used an awful lot by smaller independent local labels.Their three main (others in Terre Haute IN, Pitman NJ) pressing plants were based in Chicago, Nashville and New York, and are identifiable by the stamped in prefix to the number in the deadwax: The job numbers which follow the ZTSC, ZTSP, ZTSB codes were allotted out of the offices in the Fisher Building in Detroit, and were often allocated in batches.Stereo 45 matrix numbers from NY/Hollywood always bore a 'ZTS' prefix; Chicago used 'ZCSV' prior to 1969, and 'ZTSV' thereafter; Nashville's stereo matrix prefix was 'ZSSB.' EP releases bore the following prefix codes: ZTEP = New York/Hollywood; ZTEC = Chicago; ZTEB = Nashville. Plenty of people—perhaps most of us—would play it safe. “When I meet someone out here, I’ll say, ‘I’m kind of between gigs,’ ” Hinkie says.Further evidence comes from the complete agreement between radiometric dates and other dating methods such as counting tree rings or glacier ice core layers.Many Christians have been led to distrust radiometric dating and are completely unaware of the great number of laboratory measurements that have shown these methods to be consistent.Columbia Special Products Detroit office was first located in the Fisher Building during the mid '60's.Orders taken by the office would then be sent to Columbia's Chicago studio to have the master lacquer (acetate) cut, which would then be forwarded on to the plant in Terre Haute.
Besides the obvious reasons—weather, culture, networking, anonymity—Hinkie came here to be among what he calls “my people,” the quants, dreamers, AI geeks and visionaries.
He is presently employed in the Space & Atmospheric Sciences Group at the Los Alamos National Laboratory.
Radiometric dating--the process of determining the age of rocks from the decay of their radioactive elements--has been in widespread use for over half a century.
His Ph D thesis was on isotope ratios in meteorites, including surface exposure dating.
He was employed at Caltech's Division of Geological & Planetary Sciences at the time of writing the first edition.
