(11) Whatever social progress that marks her era came mainly from those Labour punctuations – abolition of capital punishment, Race Relations Act, abortion and homosexual law reform, equal pay and sex discrimination acts, civil partnerships, minimum wage, Sure Start, devolution, human rights, nursery education, a vast expansion of universities and more.
(12) Devolution mitigated the authority but also undermined the obedience.
(13) The Liverpool city region has proposed retention of 100% of business rates income and the ability to franchise all local bus services, while Leicester and Leicestershire want devolution of funding and the ability to commission skills programmes locally.
(14) The report explains that the Labour peer and Lib Dem advisor based their dissent on three factors: The first factor is devolution.
(15) Devolution in our over-centralised state is to be welcomed, but that it is being talked up as the platform for Labour renewal is surely a symptom of a dearth of ideas.
(16) UUP to leave Northern Ireland’s power-sharing executive Read more The revival of the independent monitoring commission (IMC), which had the task of examining the status of IRA and loyalist paramilitary ceasefires before devolution was restored nearly a decade ago, has been mooted as a way to rebuild the unionist community’s trust in republican goodwill and deter future ceasefire breaches.
(17) The rush to make a new offer on devolution, promised within hours of publication of the shock poll result on Sunday, triggered accusations of panic and bogus bribes.
(18) Under the unique rules of devolution in Northern Ireland, if either of the two principal political leaders in the province resigns from office, the coalition falls and an election must be called.
(19) He said: “I want to bring our country together, our United Kingdom together, not least by implementing as fast as we can the devolution that we rightly promised and came together with other parties to agree both for Wales and for Scotland.
(20) But there is another, much less regarded, yet significant centenary occurring this year – 1914 saw the passage of the Government of Ireland Act , the first extensive legislation for devolution in what was then the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland.
(n.) A curve from which another curve, called the involute or evolvent, is described by the end of a thread gradually wound upon the former, or unwound from it. See Involute. It is the locus of the centers of all the circles which are osculatory to the given curve or evolvent.
(1) The process of sequence rearrangement appears to be a significant part of the evolution of the genome and may have a much greater effect on the evolution of the phenotype than sequence alteration by base substitution.
(2) It is argued that this process drove the evolution of present 5' and 3' splice sites from a subset of proto-splice sites and also drove the evolution of a more efficient splicing machinery.
(3) It has been possible to observe the evolution of their lesions.
(4) Gradual evolutionary change by natural selection operates so slowly within established species that it cannot account for the major features of evolution.
(5) The early absolute but transient dependence of these A-MuLV mast cell transformants on a fibroblast feeder suggests a multistep process in their evolution, in which the acquisition of autonomy from factors of mesenchymal cell origin may play an important role.
(6) The evolution and function of multiple forms of a given photosynthetic pigment in vivo are discussed.
(7) Evolution of serological procedures was continuous through this period but without clear evidence of improvement in performance of antibody detection although performance in the UK appears to be comparable with that elsewhere.
(8) With the successful culture of these tissues, their development, biochemistry, and physiology, potentially of great importance in understanding early vertebrate evolution, can be better understood.
(9) This situation highlights the potential importance of molecules with different inheritance patterns in elucidating complex cases of reticulate evolution.
(10) The evolution of tissue damage in compressive spinal cord injuries in rats was studied using an immunohistochemical technique and by sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (SDS-PAGE) analysis.
(11) Republican presidential hopeful Scott Walker has refused to say whether he believes in the theory of evolution, arguing that it is “a question a politician shouldn’t be involved in one way or the other”.
(12) It is mentioned that the lack of a valuable status for industrial physicians may adversely affect the evolution of training programs in Switzerland.
(13) Assessment of a predictive factor for the evolution of the disease is not yet possible.
(14) These studies indicate that, in three models of acute liver injury, the net influx of calcium across the plasma membrane is increased early in the evolution of the injury before irreversible damage occurs.
(15) The strong homology of mammalian L27' to yeast L29 suggests a function which has been conserved throughout evolution, and thus L27' may also be involved in peptidyl transferase activity.
(16) The diversity of the non-Hodgkin's groups, the continued evolution of histopathologic classifications, and the great frequency of advanced disease in the lymphocytic subgroups make the Ann Arbor classification of only limited value for the non-Hodgkin's lymphomas.
(17) We show how this model would explain the perinatal or infantile onset of the disease, the variability of the rate of evolution between the different SMA forms, and the fact that motoneuron loss is much more dramatic in SMA than in even advanced cases of myopathy.
(18) Evolution into acute myeloid leukemia occurred in 11 patients.
(19) On evaluation of the time evolution of the symptoms we found that most patients continued to show them until September each year.
(20) The evolution with time of cardio-respiratory variables, blood pressure and body temperature has been studied on six males, resting in semi-nude conditions during short (30 min) cold stress exposure (0 degree C) and during passive recovery (60 min) at 20 degrees C. Passive cold exposure does not induce a change in HR but increases VO2, VCO2, Ve and core temperature Tre, whereas peripheral temperature is significantly lowered.
