(13) In the cracks corrosion products usually found on amalgam were identified.
(14) Only five restorations (one of amalgam and four of composite resin) failed during the trial.
(15) The purpose of this study was to compare the relative cytotoxicity of amalgams and to determine whether their toxicity depends upon composition and aging time, by means of a rapid and sensitive in vitro cell culture test.
(16) Through the report of a clinical case, the feasibility and advantages of repair and recontouring of complex amalgam restorations are discussed.
(17) The objective of this study was to determine the in vitro corrosion products that resulted from crevice corrosion of low- and high-copper dental amalgams.
(18) Moonlight wins best picture Oscar, after Warren Beatty gives gong to La La Land Read more “Peak blackness is a rare metaphysical anomaly that can only occur when an amalgam of black excellence comes together at the same societal intersection,” he said.
(19) Proximal retentive grooves significantly increase the strength of amalgam restorations in Class II cavities.
(20) This paper explores the role of size of place residential preference in the evolution of the intention to move out of the present community using data from the March 1974 NORC Amalgam Survey.
(v. t.) To mix or mingle together; esp. to mingle, combine, or associate so that the separate things mixed, or the line of demarcation, can not be distinguished. Hence: To confuse; to confound.
(v. t.) To pollute by mixture or association; to spoil or corrupt; to blot; to stain.
(v. i.) To mingle; to mix; to unite intimately; to pass or shade insensibly into each other, as colors.
(n.) A thorough mixture of one thing with another, as color, tint, etc., into another, so that it cannot be known where one ends or the other begins.
(a.) To make blind, literally or figuratively; to dazzle; to deceive.
(1) At the time, with a regular supply of British immigrants arriving in large numbers in Australia, Biggs was able to blend in well as "Terry Cook", a carpenter, so well in fact that his wife, Charmian, was able to join him with his three sons.
(2) Several oilseed and legume protein products were fed to rats as the sole source of dietary protein, and in blends with cereals for the determination of protein efficiency ratio (PER) and biological availability of amino acids.
(3) Infants were habituated to models posing either prototypically positive displays (e.g., happy expressions) or positive expression blends (e.g., mock surprise).
(4) From these experiments, we conclude that the surface-modified polyurethane blend is superior to Biomer polyurethane in blood compatibility and in freedom from thromboembolic risk.
(5) Immersion of polymer membranes blended with the thrombin inhibitor in phosphate-buffered saline for 10 d resulted in the loss of nonthrombogenicity, while the polymer membranes grafted with the thrombin inhibitor derivative maintained the nonthrombogenicity over a long period.
(6) In Experiment 1, chicks 24 days old were fed mixtures of untreated and inoculated corn containing citrinin to provide 0, 50, 100, 150, 200, and 250 micrograms of the toxin per gram of blended corn.
(7) They dealt in dozens of different commodities – from major grains such as wheat and sorghum to specialised food aid products such as corn-soy blend.
(8) We tested semihardened blends of edible oils, suitable for commercial food manufacture, with a lower-than-conventional saturated fatty acid content, for their effects on plasma cholesterol.
(9) The study of amino acid pattern shows that sulphur containing amino acids are limiting to almost the same degree in meat and meat soy blend.
(10) The concomitance of five previously reported trans-2,5-dialkyl-pyrrolidines along with small amounts of the cis isomers and N-methyl analogues makes the venom of M. indicum the most qualitatively diverse blend of alkaloids reported from an ant to date.
(11) You will leave your house without your watch or wristband, but you will never leave your house without your shoes.” Blending in with existing apparel The challenge faced by Google Glass and other wearable technologies is that they rely on the user being prepared to wear an extra item of apparel.
(12) In one experiment, finisher diets containing 2.5, 5.0, or 10.0% of added corn oil (CO), poultry oil (PO), tallow (T), or a commercial hydrolyzed animal-vegetable fat blend (HB) were fed.
(13) Type I pili increased in length much more slowly than did F pili, although the fraction of cells having visible type I pili increased very rapidly after blending because of the large number of type I pili per cell.
(14) Central nervous system function is modeled as a steady state Kalman filter that optimally blends information from the various sensors to form an estimate of spatial orientation.
(15) The data revealed that (a) adequate verbal instruction had a modest but significant effect on the subjects' blending performance (Experiment 1), and (b) training without pictorial prompts resulted in better blending of trained and untrained C-VC items than training with pictorial prompts (Experiment 2).
(16) This technique guarantees adequate ventilation with an oxygen-air blend.
(17) The blended fat was composed of a mixture of animal and vegetable fats.
(18) The MTBE fuel blend appeared to offer the most reduction in total hydrocarbon, carbon monoxide, and oxides of nitrogen for the fuels and temperatures tested.
(19) Evidence is presented that excessive blending in a wet granulation process shifts the packing arrangement of the wet granule, causing it to become dense and nonporous.
(20) Noninoculated corn, inoculated corn, and blends of the two were fed to chicks for 5 hr as the only feed.
