(12) That may well be the case, but it is extremely unlikely that Britain would be able to choose the terms of its future cooperation with the EU and not face push-back from member states.
(13) There can’t be something, someone that could fix this and chooses not to.” Years of agnosticism and an open attitude to religious beliefs thrust under the bus, acknowledging the shame that comes from sitting down with those the world forgot.
(14) This further emphasizes the importance of choosing the lowest effective dose when using SPP contrast agents.
(15) This paper reviews the concepts used at the Chicago Lying-in Hospital, University of Chicago, in choosing the primary antibiotic, ceftizoxime, for the treatment of pelvic inflammatory disease.
(16) As Aesop reminds us at the end of the fable: “Nobody believes a liar, even when he’s telling the truth.” When leaders choose only the facts that suit them, people don’t stop believing in facts – they stop believing in leaders This distrust is both mutual and longstanding, prompting two clear trends in British electoral politics.
(17) A ten-year study of the sexual behavior of college students in Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada, shows that students choose among three sexual subcultures: celibacy, monogamy, and free experimentation.
(18) The complications of postoperative analgesia include respiratory depression and--when choosing the epidural route--possible damage to the spinal cord by infection, trauma, or bleeding.
(19) The data obtained can be useful when choosing a rational method for the therapy of gastric scretory disorders.
(20) I will destroy you.” Khan, a former WBA and IBF light world welterweight champion, also turned on Manny Pacquiao, accusing him and his team, led by Bob Arum, of providing conflicting reasons for choosing to fight Timothy Bradley in April, instead of the Bolton born boxer.
(n.) One who selects.
(1) Using consumer survey data from the Missouri Managed Health Care Project, we examined characteristics and use experiences of assignees compared with selectors.
(2) The use of this selector creates a possibility of reducing the increase in the synchronizing pulse with respect to the channel pulses and eliminating tuning the transmitter's modulator and receiver's selector to each other.
(3) The optimum threshold values for this selector are as follows: 12 ms in the rate and 14 ms in the duration.
(4) The members of the main feeding categories (Hofmann, Stewart 1972): concentrate selector, roughage eater and intermediate feeder did not differ much in the ultrastructure of the fundic stomach epithelium but showed greater differences with respect to the height and shape of the glandular tubules and the arrangement of the epithelial cell types.
(5) The DNaseI footprint of this protein complex with the enhancer overlapped a sequence, AGGAGGA, found within the binding site for a protein that interacts with the chicken beta globin promoter and enhancer, termed the stage selector element.
(6) These results support the selector gene model of development (Garcia-Bellido, 1975) and emphasize that collaboration between polyclones is important in pattern formation.
(7) But the East Ender will not compete over the one lap in Daegu, while the runner-up – Shana Cox – only qualifies for a British passport from November of this year and so all three British places are up for grabs as the selectors meet to decide who will travel to South Korea this summer.
(8) In Drosophila embryos, anterior-posterior positional identities are set and maintained by the expression boundaries of homeotic selector genes.
(9) Use of the full panel to grade all abstracts was very expensive, but it could be replaced, without unacceptable injustice, by dividing the work randomly among groups of three selectors.
(10) Using the selector method on serial plastic sections, we determine the number of epithelial or interstitial cells per volume (Nv) of total epithelium or interstitium.
(11) So this element is likely to be a target of homeotic genes, which would define the beta 3 tubulin gene as a realisator gene under the control of selector genes.
(12) A monitor useful for checks of the energy selector scale of medical electron accelerators was developed and tested.
(13) Indeed, c-Jun and c-Fos served as selectors of hormone responsiveness: the composite GRE was inactive in the absence of c-Jun, whereas it conferred a positive glucocorticoid effect in the presence of c-Jun, and a negative glucocorticoid effect in the presence of c-Jun and relatively high levels of c-Fos.
(14) The noise immunity of the units can be considerably improved by means of the R-wave selector that discriminates signals by rate and duration of the pulse decay (RS-slope).
(15) The homeotic selector gene Deformed (Dfd) is required to specify the identity of head segments during Drosophila development.
(16) Two different selectors are described: a simple one for two different pulse widths and a more complicated one with a counter for any setting of pulse width in the system.
(17) We show that the eve gene contains a homeo box and hence is related structurally to the pair-rule gene fushi tarazu and to homeotic selector genes.
(18) In order to improve synchronization in biotelemetry systems, a relative pulse-width selector was designed.
(19) Binding of selector proteins to regulatory DNA sequences is mediated by an evolutionary conserved protein domain, the homeodomain.
(20) Advantages of the selectors are compact size, reproducibility of size-selection performance based on the high precision of drill manufacture and use, flexibility in design and layout, and manufacturing ease in a machine shop.
