(9) The top of the fence can also be manipulated in certain ways such as including curvature outward at the top of the fence to make scaling it much more difficult for most.” Some critics, including Washington DC congressional delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton, have warned against excessive fortification, but the report argues: “We recognise all the competing considerations that may go into questions regarding the fence, but believe that protection of the President and the White House must be the higher priority.” “Every additional second of response time provided by a fence that is more difficult to climb makes a material difference in ensuring the President’s safety and protecting the symbol that is the White House.” The panel also urges that a new head of secret service, to replace ousted head Julia Pierson, be brought in from outside the agency, ensuring it is better staffed and trained in future.
(10) Climbing Table Mountain and hitting the nightlife are on the agenda too, as well as surfing Cape Town’s more challenging spots, from Long Beach to Kommetjie.
(11) Now Sanders is seeing his poll numbers start to climb again, particularly in New Hampshire and Iowa, even though Clinton is seemingly doing everything right.
(12) The IPCC is charged with providing a scientific, balanced assessment about what's known and what's known about climate change There are lots of organisations ringing bells The IPCC is more like a belltower, which people can climb up to get a clear view 8.41am BST Al Gore , the former US vice-president and winner of the Nobel peace prize for his work on climate change , has responded to the IPCC report by saying it shows the need for a switch to low carbon sources of energy (note his emphasis is on mitigation, i.e.
(13) A belated acknowledgement of the damage inflicted by decades of stagnated earnings and inequality have meant pay levels have rightly climbed to prominence, in part spurred by Vermont senator Bernie Sanders who put fair pay at the heart of his campaign attempts to secure the Democratic nomination for president.
(14) Climb through the forest and discover some small churches and a brilliant Indiana Jones-esque swing bridge.
(15) Says 'mountains can be climbed and let's hope that's the case here.'
(16) The women in Wednesday's protest climbed up on the gates of the justice ministry until police pulled them down and hustled them shouting into the building as an angry crowd gathered, many of them lawyers there for work.
(17) Gait of 11 patients with bilateral paired posterior cruciate-retaining and cruciate-sacrificing total knee arthroplasties (TKA) was studied preoperatively and two years postoperatively on walking and stair climbing.
(18) In cats anaesthetized with Nembutal, the cutaneous receptive fields of individual cerebellar climbing fibres were assessed by recording the climbing fibre responses of single Purkyne cells following controlled mechanical stimulation (air jets, vibration, taps, pressure) of the foot pads of all four limbs and of the hairy skin of the limbs and the body.2.
(19) Total attendances at hospital A&E units in England have climbed every year for the past eight years, from 17.837m in 2004-05 to 21.739m in the first 11 months of 2012-13 – a rise of 21.9%.
(20) Basilar dendrites show significantly larger numbers (p less than .05) of branching for motor I cortex under condition 3 associated with the greatest skills and amount of activity in climbing, swinging, and grasping of objects.
(v. i.) A pen or inclosure for swine.
(v. i.) A place of bestial debauchery.
(v. t.) To shut up in, or as in, a sty.
(v. i.) To soar; to ascend; to mount. See Stirrup.
(v. i.) An inflamed swelling or boil on the edge of the eyelid.
(1) Thus, the estimation of the STI proved helpful and reliable in the early detection of incipient heart failure and in the selection of high risk patients in children receiving ADR treatment.
(2) Systolic time intervals (STI) of the right ventricle, however, were not influenced by the beam angle.
(3) Since 2007, MSF has opened family support centres and clinics around the country where survivors can access first aid, psychological treatment, HIV and STI medication, vaccinations and emergency contraception.
(4) Running speech was used as input signal and STI was calculated from the envelopes of the squared, noise-free speech signal and of the processed, squared, noisy signal in 23 critical bands.
(5) In studies in calcium-free tissue bath solutions, the direct contractile action of STI was abolished; however, its amplification of responses to norepinephrine remained, suggesting that this latter effect of STI is not entirely dependent upon calcium influx into vascular smooth muscle cells.
(6) In the saline groups there was a marked decrease in breaking strength at 24 and 72 h. Most of the strength was restored at 120 h. The metalloproteinase inhibitor tiopronin, which in a previous study had diminished the decrease in breaking strength at 24 h, was without effect at 72 h. Rats given STI, which is a group-specific serine proteinase inhibitor, had substantially higher values of breaking strength than saline-treated controls at 24 and 72 h. At 120 h no difference was found.
(7) STI and thiopental plasma levels were measured before induction and when corneal reflex and trapezius muscle response, indicators of anesthetic depth equivalent to response to surgical stimulation, were lost.
(8) This strain produced STI as determined by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay.
(9) Heart rates, blood pressures and systolic time intervals (STI) were measured in relation to exercise tolerance and capacity.
(10) Now, however, STI are being used increasingly in clinical pharmacological studies.
(11) Incubation for 18 hours at 37 degrees C of the strain-producer (STI-1) and a double immunization scheme with the antigen obtained proved to be the most rational conditions for inducing the immunological response in the vaccinated laboratory animals.
(12) The accuracy of STI parameters in predicting the presence of coronary disease was poor (less than 60%).
(13) Although physiological variables other than myocardial contractility, such as preload and afterload may influence STI during +Gz the effects of +Gz on stroke volume (SV) and cardiac output (CO) were estimated using previously described relationships between STI and invasively determined indices of cardiovascular function.
(14) Impedance cardiography was used for non-invasive determinations of systolic time intervals (STI) and cardiac output.
(15) The data suggests that the usual therapeutic doses of these cardiac glycosides do not cause significant changes in the peripheral circulation in patients with compensated coronary heart disease, but their action on STI is quite marked, showing a positive inotropic effect.
(16) On each occasion, the heart rate, systolic time intervals (STI) and systemic arterial blood pressure were monitored non-invasively.
(17) STI and DTI were measured from the simultaneous recordings of the apexcardiogram, carotid arterial pulse, electrocardiogram and phonocardiogram.
(18) We used STI's as parameters of cardiac performance.
(19) Measurement of STI may be a valuable tool in the diagnosis and treatment of cardiac tamponade.
(20) In dogs with larger infarcts, STx, STy, and STM were significantly larger than in those with smaller infarcts both 15 min and 4 h after embolization.
