comment What does “waive off” mean?
@Peter: I've seen nothing in anything that's been posted here that gives credence to the assertion that the racing usage of the term pre-dates the military usage of the term. Ultimately, both answers are correct, and both answer the original question adequately.

comment What is meant by “pun intended”?
@Mitch: It's probably electrical. Electrical voltage is more properly referred to as "potential difference" across a circuit. In certain work/study environments it's often shortened as "difference" instead of voltage. From the snippet, I would assume that the article is about behavioral anomalies caused by voltage fluctuations or variances in certain parts of the brain.

comment What does the door do?
Since the answer is standalone (no subject), I would expect the unconjugated form ("close") to be more correct.
