Explanation:
"A stick pusher is a device installed in some fixed-wing aircraft to prevent the aircraft from entering an aerodynamic stall. Some large fixed-wing aircraft display poor post-stall handling characteristics or are vulnerable to deep stall. To prevent such an aircraft approaching the stall the aircraft designer may install a hydraulic or electro-mechanical device that pushes forward on the elevator control system whenever the aircraft’s angle of attack reaches the pre-determined value, and then ceases to push when the angle of attack falls sufficiently. A system for this purpose is known as a stick pusher.
[...]
Stick pushers should not be confused with stick shakers. A stick shaker is a stall warning device whereas a stick pusher is a stall avoidance device." ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stick_pusher )

"A stick shaker is a mechanical device to rapidly and noisily vibrate the control yoke (the "stick") of an aircraft to warn the pilot of an imminent stall. It is connected to the control column of most business jets, airliners and military aircraft." ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stick_shaker )

"A yoke, alternatively known as a control column, is a device used for piloting some fixed-wing aircraft." ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yoke_(aircraft) )
