The difference between a causal and a constitutive relationship will be discussed at length later. One good example involves a load of lumber that was delivered to my house. The lumber caused a dented, dead patch of grass on my lawn, but it did not cause the room that was added to my house. The lumber was instead the material from which, assembled in a particular configuration, the house was constructed. Similarly, feelings are constructed out of the experiences of acting in particular ways in particular circumstances.
Salmonella typhimurium strain for a given carcinogen an S9 fraction from rat liver induced with -naphthoflavone and phenobarbital was used in all tests, except as shown. The spontaneous revertants rate for S. typhimuriumT A98 + S9 was 34 in DM SO (100 L) or 32 in aqueous buffer for TA 100 + S9the rate was 134 in DMSO,and 124 in buffer. In all tests reported, the net values are shown, i.e., the gross data minus the appropriate background value, obtained in simultaneous determinations. Likewise, the three polyphenones(propriatory name of polyphenols) used gave background readings atthe 3 dose levels used. Thus, in S. typhimurium TA98 + S9, polyphenon 60 gave gross readings of 30,30, and 32 rev plate at 1, 2, and 3 mg plate, respectively. The corresponding values for polyphenon 100 were 45,39, and 36andforpolyphenon B33,32, and 31. InS. typhimurium TA100 + S9, the values for 1,3, and 3 mg polyphenon 60 were 114,132, and 114, for polyphenon 100,130,114, and 108, and for polyphenon...
Intuitively, one of the basic ways in which we use our concepts is in judging whether something is a specific instance of a category. For example, determining whether the animal running across the lawn is a dog or a deer. As such, a large body of work has concerned itself with judgements of category membership. The view taken in object-concept research has been that concepts are defined by attributes for example, a specific dog is categorised as a dog by virtue of having four-legs, fur, barking, and panting-a-lot. In response to behaviourist accounts of categorisation, some of the earliest cognitive work tried to show that category judgements were rule-governed based on the consideration of such attributes.
Ticks and their hosts (chipmunks, voles, mice, and other small mammals) need moisture, a place hidden from direct sun, and a place to hide. Therefore, the cleaner the area around a house, the less chance there will be of getting a tick bite. All leaf litter and brush should be removed as far as possible away from the house. Low-lying bushes should be pruned to let in more sun. Leaves should be raked up every fall, since ticks prefer to overwinter in fallen leaves. Woodpiles are favorite hiding places for mammals carrying ticks to discourage mammal visitors, woodpiles should be neat, off the ground, in a sunny place, and under cover. Gardens should be cleaned up every fall foliage left on the ground over the winter provides shelter for mammals that may harbor ticks. Stone walls on the property increase the potential for ticks as well. Shady lawns may support ticks in epidemic areas lawns should be mowed and edged. Entire fields should be mowed in fall, preferably with a rotary mower....

Because my father owns a landscaping business, I felt this was the perfect project for me in order to broaden my knowledge of medicinal plants. Although I was being introduced to a field in which I had no previous knowledge, I always had a good sense of landscape design and experience with decorative plants on which to fall back. My plant selection was based on herbs used by Native Americans because their usage reflects my own feelings towards homeopathy,
In order to verify that acute Pi depletion alone was sufficient to shift the lethality of P. aeruginosa in vivo, we modeled Pi depletion in the P. aeruginosa-C. elegans system (Fig. 9.2) (Zaborin et al. 2009). C. elegans normally feed on lawns of E. coli OP50 that grow on nematode growth media (NGM), a high Pi media (25 mM). We used P. aeruginosa PAO1, known to be non-lethal to C. elegans on NGM media, and depleted the media of Pi to determine if low Pi would shift P. aeruginosa to express lethality. To accomplish this, C. elegans feeding on E. coli OP50 were transferred onto lawns of P. aeruginosa PAO1 growing on NGM media at high Pi (25 mM) or low Pi ( 0.1 mM). Although initially we did not observe any mortality under low Pi , C. elegans progeny formation, an important marker of viability, was significantly attenuated. In order to deplete the worm digestive tube of any residual Pi upon transfer to the lawn of P. aeruginosa, we subjected worms to a period of short-term starvation (18...
I sit and watch Stephen play in the afternoon sun outside my window. He is nine years old. I have not seen him for some time, and I'm surprised at how much he's grown. It's a warm day in December, but it feels more like spring as an early snowfall melts on the lawn. I work at an old hospital that used to be a tuberculosis sanatorium, and the maintenance staff are putting up the Christmas lights on a very tall pine tree, as they have done every December for many years. Stephen runs around the path in circles, paying no attention to the lights going up. His mother keeps a slightly anxious eye on him, as do the gentlemen working on the tree. When it's time for me to greet him, he clumps up the stairs, too heavily for so slight a boy. He announces in a loud voice, I catch wasps
Balance of your relationship is shifting you will be challenged emotionally, spiritually, and physically. A partner who mowed the lawn and kept the garden may no longer be able to perform these tasks. A partner who shopped and cooked and cleaned the house may have to share those tasks with his or her mate. At times, the responsibility for the home combined with caregiving for the ill partner can become so burdensome that you feel pushed beyond your abilities to cope.
In addition to the established injection model of infection, we examined whether or not a chronic exposure of the wax moth caterpillars to a lawn of PA14 could result in pathogenicity. This approach is significantly faster than manually injecting each bacterial strain to be tested, and we are tentatively referring to this assay system as a wax moth feeding model (although we have yet to determine that bacteria are ingested by feeding rather than entering the host by some other mechanism). We placed wax moth caterpillars onto LB plates containing a lawn of PA14, LB plates with no bacteria, or an empty Petri dish with no agar (Fig. 6B). In the absence of agar, the caterpillars survived with little or no adverse effects over the course of 5 days (black triangles). When placed on an empty LB plate with no added bacteria, a lawn of an (as yet) uncharacterized microorganism grew up over the course of the experiment and the caterpillars began dying at 53 hours (red squares). We have not yet...
In the laboratory, C. elegans is grown on a lawn of E. coli, which serves as its food source. In the C. elegans model pathogenicity system (Tan et al., 1999a), pathogens such as PA14 are used as the sole source of food in place of E. coli, and the longevity of the nematodes is monitored. Remarkably, nematodes feeding on a wide variety of human pathogens exhibit significantly shortened longevity compared to their longevity when feeding on E. coli. We consider shortened C. elegans longevity as an indication of active killing since, in general, shortened longevity on pathogenic bacteria is dependent on live bacteria i.e., dead pathogens do not kill C. elegans. The nematodes are exposed to a maximal dose of pathogen in this assay (the bacteria are already grown to a lawn before the nematodes are added to the assay plate). Therefore, mutations or strain differences that effect the growth rate or overall fitness of the bacterium tend to have less of an impact on the virulence phenotype than...
The drug-producing variety is widely cultivated in societies where its use is condoned. Illegal crops are also planted, some in the United States. The choice parts are the fresh top leaves and flowers of the female plant. The leaves have a characteristic configuration of five deeply cut serrated lobes. When they are harvested, they often resemble lawn cuttings which accounts for the slang term grass.
Lawn mower safety The power lawn mower is one of the most dangerous tools around the home, especially for children. In 1990 about 10,000 children younger than 15 years were seen in emergency rooms with lawn mower injuries. More than seven percent of pediatric mower-related injuries require hospitalization, which is about twice the hospitalization rate for consumer product-related injuries overall. Older children and teens were most often hurt while cutting lawns, but younger ones were most often injured by riding on lawn mowers with a parent. Lawn mower injuries include deep cuts, loss of fingers and toes, broken and dislocated bones, burns, and eye and other injuries. To prevent lawn mower injuries to children, the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends Children under age 16 should not use ride-on mowers, and children under age 12 should not use walk-behind mowers. Children should not operate lawn mowers until they have displayed appropriate levels of judgment, strength,...
Perhaps the simplest form of bridging inference is involved in anaphora, in which a pronoun or noun has to be identified with a previously mentioned noun or noun phrase (e.g., Fred sold John his lawn mower, and then he sold him his garden hose . It requires a bridging inference to realise that he refers to Fred rather than to John. How do people make the appropriate anaphoric inference Sometimes gender makes the task very easy (e.g., Juliet sold John her lawn mower, and then she sold him her garden hose ), and sometimes the number of the noun provides a useful cue (e.g., Juliet and her friends sold John their lawn mower, and then they sold him their garden hose ).
He had been in the same job for some time but the company had been restructured around him several times and on each occasion he had worried about keeping his job and then found that he was having to work even harder afterwards. He was just about managing but finding that he had little time for anything else. For the last year or two he had also been steadily putting on weight and was becoming quite portly. As a young man, he had been reasonably sporty, but now his activity seemed to be restricted to mowing the lawn at weekends and getting up and down from the couch during the week. He had recently noticed that he was short of breath simply from walking upstairs to the bedroom.
Lexical ambiguity occurs when a word has multiple independent meanings. Bank in the sentence Jeremy went to the bank' could denote a riverbank or a financial institution. Ambiguous words may differ in syntactic category as well as meaning (e.g., rose, watch, and patient ). True lexical ambiguity is typically distinguished from polysemy (e.g., the N.Y. Times as in this morning's edition of the newspaper versus the company that publishes the newspaper) or from vagueness (e.g., cut as in cut the lawn or cut the cloth ), though the boundaries can be fuzzy.
The Snowdon gauge (Fig. 3.1b), a Met Office Mark I instrument, remains in favour among private observers in the UK, since without the splayed base it is easily maintained in a garden lawn. It is, however, more difficult to keep rigid with the rim level. Globally, the daily storage gauge in most common use is the German Hellmann gauge, with over 30 000 gauges of this type in use (Sevruk and Klemm, 1989). This gauge is similar in design to the Snowdon gauge, but with a larger funnel diameter of 159.6 mm.
The Lord took me to a garden where surely beauty had found its name. This was an old-fashioned, typically English garden with lush green velvet lawn, bounded by deep curving borders brimming with flowers, each flower nestling within its family group, each group proclaiming its presence with a riot of colour and fragrance as if blessed by a morning dew. The entrance to the garden was marked by a trellis of honeysuckle so laden that you had to crouch down to pass beneath while at the other end a rustic garden gate led to the outside. It was here that my walk through was to end as I was gently led through to the other side. It was at this moment that the realization that I was going to live came to me and I would have to face the consequences of living. There followed two weeks as I lay in a coma in between worlds.
Next time you spend an hour removing dandelions from your garden or lawn, turn them into medicine instead of throwing them out, and rejoice in the fact that they will always grow back Description A familiar weed of lawns, with bright yellow flowers, seed clocks, a bitter white latex in the stem, and a long tap root. Habitat Lawns, fields, and roadside verges. Dandelions have followed European settlers around the world, though it is probably native in China and most of Asia. Most people know them as lawn weeds, but we're prepared to upset the gardeners to say consider the benefits of a lawn of brightly blooming dandelions. Can grass give you salad, tasty fritters, wine, a coffee substitute, tea, useful medicine and more besides
These jobs include food services, manual work, retail sales, building construction, office work, and grocery stores. In food services, youth may serve as cleaners, waiters waitresses, and cashiers. Youths involved in manual work mostly operate simple machines that require no licenses (e.g., copying machine, paper shredder, lawn mower). Duties in retail sales are very simple, such as selling clothes or accessories and checking stocks.
I remember two young fathers on our street, torn by the news, who wanted to help but felt helpless. My husband came home from the hospital late one night to find that our lawn had been mowed and our leaves had been raked by them. They had found a way to make a small difference that day.
