Consumption tax: It is a levy on consumer goods. The objective of such tax is not only to raise revenue but, sometimes, it is also designed to regulate consumption and even production. Sales tax, excise duties etc. are illustrations.

Earth lock: This means orientation towards the Earth; it is essential for uninterrupted transmission by a geo-synchronous satellite. Earthlock is ensured by the satellites sensors which feel the Earth's radiation.
