In another example, before the launch of the United States spaceship Challenger which ended tragically with the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster , the final launch approval by rocket maker Morton Thiokol contained the phrase "information on this page was prepared to support an oral presentation and cannot be considered complete without the oral discussion"; this notice was later described as a "CYA notice".  In print, it can have the form of a disclaimer ; for example, Slate Magazine suggested that the White House used the phrase It is important not to read too much into any one monthly report as a disclaimer on reports, and this was described as a . activity.  The term has been applied in the medical profession to describe doctors who prescribe unnecessary medical tests for patients, to protect themselves against possible future lawsuits.  The term has been used to describe a cultural tendency which works against accountability and risk-taking, such as in a war effort when generals engage in much cover your ass activity which avoids taking real responsibility. 
I am having a problem trying to get my cover letter going. I am applying for a job that I am under-qualified for according to their “success profile.” I do know that this position do not really need a science degree (it is just preferred) but they did put it down there. Besides, it is actually a trainee position where I will be in training for 3-4 years. Anyhow, I do not know how to bring it up and I feel that in this case it is vital that I have a cover letter to explain why I am a suitable candidate. I don’t want the hiring manager to just throw my resume out without giving me at least a chance. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.
