Going off of a very rough historical comparison to WW1 and earlier naval organizations try: The logistical support ships, cargo, colliers, oilers, etc.

Some support vessels were never organized into units at all. Assuming a techlevel more advanced than nearfuture i. If you are able to intercept and kill another warship across a star system, you are also capable of reducing to radioactive rubble an entire planetary civilization with little effort.
From Tobias Pfennings The brain trust that I copy from research for spacecraft combat material have developed their own private jargon. As a public service I present a small glossary so you decipher what they are talking about. Basically a mobile control center for combat drones.
Sort of like the brain center inside a huge swarm of deadly metal space-going hornets with nuclear stingers. The idea is that the control ship and its human crew stands off at a hopefully safe distance from the battle, and sending in hordes of expendable drones to savage the enemy ships.
Please note that the control ship probably will NOT carry and service the drones, since the control ship will have to be nimble enough beat a hasty retreat if the battle goes terribly wrong. The drones will be carried by separate parasite-carrier spacecraft.
The control ship might contain the only live human beings in the entire swarm. Since the acceleration of the projectile increases with the length of the weapon barrel, these tend to be in spinal mounts.
Requires large amounts of electricity advantage: They are basically huge numbers of dime-a-dozen chemical-rocket-powered kinetic-energy-weapons. It is such a good defense it could render torch missiles to be totally worthless.
Generally this is a preposterous waste of your combat dollar, unless there are special circumstances. Right off the bat the Lancer spacecraft will need at least four times the delta-V of an equivalent missile, since unlike the missile the Lancer is not on a suicide mission.
A missile just has to do one burn to the target. The lancer has to burn for the target, do a counter-burn to stop, do a burn for home, and do a counter-burn to stop at home. Science fiction authors and game designers find this to result in scenarios that are drearily boring, so they often go out of their way to try to figure out extenuating circumstances to ensure military combat in their novels is non-Lanchesterian.
Occasionally the term is used for an impressively armed combat spacecraft suitable for political use in gunboat diplomacy.
This poor term is used in a variety of conflicting ways in this website. Though all of definitions refer to something that is self-propelled, as opposed to railgun shells and other gun-launched kinetic energy weapons.The article you have been looking for has expired and is not longer available on our system.

In recent months, we have seen a spate of scandals involving top corporate houses and sportspersons about how they have been implicated in conflict of interest issues.
A consideration of the basic problems of civil procedure designed to acquaint students with the fundamental stages and concerns of litigation, e.g., jurisdiction, pleading, discovery, trial, choice of law, and multiparty actions.
Accordingly, ethical decision-making is dictated by a varying combination of law, ethics, and morals, and the management of ethical issues is the “behavior” component about which legal, moral, and ethical obligations are chiefly concerned. The act of whistleblowing can cause a conflict of interest between the personal, organizational and societal spheres.
Much of this conflict stems from the context in which a whistleblower is viewed: whether as someone sharing knowledge of misconduct for the benefit of others or as someone who is acting “disloyal” to their organization.
This video introduces the behavioral ethics bias known as conflict of interest. A conflict of interest arises when we have incentives and responsibilities in our personal and professional lives that are at odds and cause harm to others and to society.
