(n.) One of the nomadic Arabs who live in tents, and are scattered over Arabia, Syria, and northern Africa, esp. in the deserts.
(a.) Pertaining to the Bedouins; nomad.
(1) The Palestinian Bedouin family live in Az-Zayyem, inside Area C, farming goats and camels for milk.

(3) She, and three other captives, were told that if they didn't pay $10,000 each within a few days, they would be sold to Bedouin traffickers in Sinai.
(4) When medium quality roughage was fed, Bedouin goats apparently consumed enough energy to sustain both maintenance and production, whereas Saanen goats consumed only enough to maintain very low production.
(5) An increase in dizygotic twinning in the whole population, largely due to an increase of rate in the Bedouin population was found.
(6) This is the first case of Mollaret's syndrome related to delivery, and also the first presentation in a Bedouin.
(7) The past year has seen a shift in agenda from the grievances of the local Bedouin population to a more international focus and an expansion of the recruiting base.
(8) He said the Egyptian authorities, who approved his travel to Bir Tawil, appeared positive about his scheme, and that the Bedouins he spoke to “welcomed” his ideas, though admits he only spoke to a handful of people.
(9) His monstrous wardrobe, his entourages of 300 or 400 ferried in four aeroplanes, his huge bedouin tent, complete with accompanying camel, pitched in public parks or in the grounds of five-star hotels – and his bodyguards of gun-toting young women, who, though by no means hiding their charms beneath demure Islamic veils, were all supposedly virgins, and sworn to give their lives for their leader.
(10) Of 92 patients, 51% were Jews of Ethiopian origin, 29% were Jews of non-Ethiopian origin, and 20% were Bedouins.
(11) In an unprecedented move the leaders of Jordan's main Bedouin tribes have published an open letter addressed to King Abdullah II accusing his wife, Queen Rania, of corruption.
(12) The traditional Bedouin Arab lifestyle (living in tents or huts and in traditional or transitional encampments) contributed strongly to increased duration of breast feeding.
(13) Trouble erupted in the Sinai peninsula after a group of bedouin tribesmen stormed a tourist resort in an effort to reclaim land.
(14) We were offered land in exchange for moving from here near Yatta [the neighbouring town visible from Khirbet Susiya] but they have no right.” The long saga of Khirbet Susiya is symbolic of a wider problem of demolition and displacement affecting unrecognised villages in both the occupied Palestinian territories and Bedouin communities in Israel itself.
(15) Higher admission rates were significantly related to female sex, the widowed and single status and Kuwaiti and Bedouin nationalities.
(16) The donkey appears to digest cell wall constituents as efficiently as the Bedouin goat when on low quality roughage, but less efficiently when fed alfalfa hay.
(17) It must be ruled out in patients with diabetes, those undergoing prolonged corticosteroid therapy and in Bedouin and Yemenite patients in whom there is a greater incidence of the disease.
(18) TfD was present in low frequency (0.005) among both the Bedouin and non-Bedouin populations.
(19) Could a bedouin shepherd stand in the face of the Roman and Persian kings?"
(20) It is suggested that the exposure of the Bedouin Arabs to the environmental causative factors of ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease has hitherto been limited and thereby accounts for the rarity of these diseases in this population.
(v. i.) To delay; to linger.
(v. i.) To abide; to remain; to continue.
(v. i.) To abide as a permanent resident, or for a time; to live in a place; to reside.
(v. t.) To inhabit.
(1) Nango's dwellings are built on skis so can be pulled around the beach, and have a glass roof to view the northern lights.
(2) Further, they dwell on the management of these infections and illustrate the properties, toxic effects and other side effects of the antibiotics commonly used in therapy and for the prevention of complications.
(3) Current income, highest income, occupation, type of dwelling, years of education, and crowding did not enter the stepwise regression model at alpha = .10.
(4) A policy of selective antibiotic prophylaxis is justified and in high risk patients with in-dwelling catheters single dose prophylaxis is highly effective.
(5) The dwell-time histogram in each substate was well fitted with a single-exponential function.
(6) The frequency of mites in dust from farmers' homes was three times higher and that of pyroglyphids ten times higher than in other dwellings.
(7) The typical synanthropic species Glycyphagus domesticus is totally absent from dwellings but occurs in 90% of honey-bee hives.
(8) Absence of a functioning velocity storage network in bottom-dwelling teleosts (as in Amphibia) may be related to the sporadic, slow locomotion of these species and the resulting small requirements for continuous gaze stabilization during self-motion at higher velocities.
(9) The sample comprised 101 community-dwelling older adults aged 57 to 87.
(10) Republicans were under pressure not to dwell on Clinton’s use of a private email server as too zealous an attack could come off as partisan.
(11) Approximately 1,056 dwellings were located in the Oberon Shire by the interviewers; household interviews were obtained from 789 of them.
(12) A significant seasonal variation of serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels was noted in elderly community-dwelling subjects.
(13) After displaying the results concerning arrhythmias of 24 hr Holter electrocardiograms recorded in 207 randomized patients who had undergone valvular replacement 15 days before, the authors dwell upon the use of Holter electrocardiography in 82 valvular patients after pharmacological cardioversion and show that major arrhythmias get a clear reduction thanks to rehabilitation.
(14) Bucknall, 53, is reluctant to dwell on mistakes that have been made, but admits "it would be odd if after 10 years, we hadn't learned a lot".
(15) Second-order factor analyses yielded two comparable sets of three second-order factors: Social Activities and Self-Care Ability, whereas the third factor connected high welfare with age-segregated dwelling (and low welfare with age-integration).
(16) The number of years spend in dwellings without central heating was significantly inversely associated with the level of FEV1 and MMEF, and significantly directly associated with closing capacity in per cent of TLC, CC%.
(17) A greater loss of proteins overnight was due to longer dwell time as the mean rate of loss was similar for all exchanges.
(18) Additional studies are highly desirable to confirm or refute these findings, which, if valid, mean increasing lung cancer hazards caused by a decrease in ventilation in future energy saving unless special measures are undertaken to reduce radon daughters in dwellings.
(19) We investigated whether day to day changes in the transport characteristics of the peritoneal membrane to macromolecules in patients treated with CAPD, were related to the levels of interleukin-6 (IL-6) in the effluent of an overnight dwell.
(20) Using the assumption that prolonged dwell time indicates intensive processing of visual data, a model was developed for nodule detection that includes four steps: orientation, scanning, pattern recognition and decision-making.
