Omega (capital: Ω, lowercase: ω; Greek Ωμέγα) is the 24th and last letter of the Greek alphabet. In the Greek numeric system, it has a value of 800. The word literally means "great O" (ō mega, mega meaning 'great'), as opposed to omicron, which means "little O" (o mikron, micron meaning "little"). This name is Byzantine; in Classical Greek, the letter was called ō (ὦ), whereas the omicron was called ou (οὖ)...In group theory, the omega and agemo subgroups of a p-group, Ω(G) and ℧(G)...The O in ABO is often called 0 (zero, or null) in other languages...The Rh system is the second most significant blood-group system in human-blood transfusion with currently 50 antigens...Rh negative blood types are much less in proportion of Asian populations (0.3%) than they are in White (15%)...

The symbol Ω (majuscule letter)...In astronomy (cosmology) Ω refers to the density of the universe, also called the density parameter...Part of the Badge of the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom...The official badge of the Supreme Court was granted by the College of Arms in October 2008. It comprises both the Greek letter omega (representing finality) and the symbol of Libra (symbolising the scales of justice), in addition to the four floral emblems of the United Kingdom: a Tudor rose, representing England, conjoined with the leaves of a leek, representing Wales; a flax for Northern Ireland; and a thistle, representing Scotland...Yet another emblem is formed from a more abstract set of depictions of the four floral emblems and is used in the carpets of the Middlesex Guildhall. It was designed by Sir Peter Blake, famous for designing the cover of The Beatles' 1967 album, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band...The symbol of the resistance movement against the Vietnam-era draft...Year or date of death...Used to refer to the lowest-ranked wolf in a pack...

In gematria, ayin represents the number 70...Ayin is also one of the seven letters which receive special crowns (called tagin) when written in a Sefer Torah. See Shin, Gimmel, Teth, Nun, Zayin, and Tzadi...Because the sound is difficult for most non-Arabs to pronounce, it is often used as a shibboleth by Arabic-speakers; other sounds, such as Ḥā and Ḍād are also used...The Maltese language, which uses a Latin alphabet (and is the only Semitic language to do so in its standard form) writes the ayin as għ...

An OX (plural oxen), also known as a bullock in Australia, New Zealand and India, is a bovine trained as a draft animal. Oxen are commonly castrated adult male cattle; castration makes the animals more tractable. Cows (adult females) or bulls (intact males) may also be used in some areas.

The most common commands are...

Get up: go
Whoa: stop
Back: back up
Gee: turn to the right
Haw: turn to the left

In Chinese mythology there was a story of a cowherd who was lied to by his greedy brother and then believed that the only property he had inherited was an old Ox that could no longer work. Suddenly one day the Ox spoke to the cowherd, claiming to be a heavenly general, the animal then took the young man to a secret place, where he met and fell in love with a beautiful weaving fairy from Heaven. Their secret love affair eventually infuriated the Jade Emperor so much that he summoned the fairy back to Heaven and ordered the lovers to be separated, with the Milky Way between them. Heartbroken, the couple came to see each other day after day, but could only look across a great distance. Finally, their love moved the Heavenly God, who finally granted that they could meet one day each year . The cowherd and the weaving fairy could meet once a year on the seventh day of the seventh moon over a bridge across the Milky Way formed by sympathetic magpies....The Ox is said to have the highest compatibility with the signs, Snake and Rooster, while reportedly showing a low compatibility with the sign, Goat...Ruling hours 1am-3am...Colours Scarlet and Purple...OX FORD...
