(8) Some, including the Dutch and Polish government, are more interested in devolving power back to the member states.
(9) The 32 dead souls ringing the Dr Strangelove war room of the NFL ownership meeting interrupt their Randroid tongue-bathing only to squeal like scalded truffle pigs at the thought of any power devolving to the actual people whose ability, knowledge and gameplay make the NFL worth watching in the first place.
(10) "In the meantime, we urge the Westminster government to follow the Scottish example, embrace a Plan MacB approach for the UK economy and work with the three devolved administrations through a jobs summit to agree an immediate programme of employment creation."
(11) But if UK solidarity – and the rhetoric of one nation – is to mean something for every person in every corner of a devolved UK, much is to be said for caution over cutting one of the strongest ties that bind.
(12) I am very clear that I want to ensure we get the best possible deal for the United Kingdom that works for everyone across the United Kingdom and all parts of the UK when we enter these negotiation,” said the prime minister in Wales, at the start of a whirlwind UK tour aimed at drumming up last-minute support from the devolved administrations.
(13) The social responsibilities which devolve on monitors, the authorities, both sides of industry and the general public as a result of the establishment of monitoring systems are discussed.
(14) In his paper, Where is the peace dividend?, Knox contrasts the quality of life in the poorest areas, using the devolved Belfast government’s category of neighbourhood renewal areas (NRAs), with those that are not deemed to be in need of major socio-economic investment.
(15) This convention says that Westminster should not legislate on a matter which is normally devolved unless Holyrood has given its consent.
(16) He has signed 28 modest "city deals" with authorities to bring local control over areas from devolved transport funding to skills budgets, while – potentially – delivering extra money from the Treasury to Greater Manchester as the local economy grows.
(17) The new 14-strong BBC board will have four non-executive board members representing each of the devolved nations, appointed in the same way as the BBC chair.
(18) However, such a move is unlikely to win the backing of the nationalist SDLP or Alliance party, and in turn would create internal demands from within the DUP to also leave the devolved administration.
(19) Calling for a full re-evaluation of the union, Jones hailed the UK government's decision this month to offer the Welsh assembly new tax-raising and borrowing powers, but said the UK needed to have consistent ways of devolving power.
(20) Jarosław Kaczyński, the head of the governing PiS party, has already used the UK’s leave vote to call for thorough reform of the EU, arguing that a new European treaty devolving more power to member states is the only way to prevent further disintegration of the bloc.
(v. t.) To separate into integrant parts; to reduce to fragments or to powder; to break up, or cause to fall to pieces, as a rock, by blows of a hammer, frost, rain, and other mechanical or atmospheric influences.
(v. i.) To decompose into integrant parts; as, chalk rapidly disintegrates.
(1) After absorption of labeled glucose, two pools of trehalose are found in dormant spores, one of which is extractable without breaking the spores, and the other, only after the spores are disintegrated.
(2) The interaction between PE and E-IgG involved the extension of micropseudopods toward adherent E-IgG, the formation of a linear uniform cap of roughly 200 A between opposing cell membranes, the ingestion of E-IgG by PE into a membrane-lined compartment, and the disintegration of the ingested ligand into membranous debris.
(3) Their defect in DNA degradation was shown not only after treatment by toluene but also in crude extracts after cell disintegration by ultrasonic and in untreated starved cultures.
(4) In order to identify these anchorage structures, the non-DNA materials that remain firmly bound to chromosomal DNA under conditions that disintegrate the high salt-stable architecture of nuclei were investigated.
(5) Bone cement particles promote polyethylene wear, which in turn promotes granuloma formation, bone resorption, and subsequent bone cement disintegration.
(6) The platelet disintegration is associated with a loss in the metabolic activity, discharge of LDH, increased susceptibility to phospholipid hydrolysis by phospholipase C and is found to be initiated during the actual preparation of platelet concentrates.
(7) By electron microscopy, accumulations of polymorphonuclear leukocytes in various degrees of disintegration were associated with areas of the basement membrane that appeared to be losing their structural integrity, suggesting that the damage to the membrane was brought about by the action of lysosomal enzymes.
(8) Scanning electronmicroscopy examination showed that the morphology of NCH blastula cells, which were obtained from the combination of Tilapia nucleus and goldfish cytoplasm, manifested obviously abnormal features and the cells were arrested at different stages of cell disintegration.
(9) The disruption by means of the Hews press yielded a more active preparation as compared with ultrasonic disintegration.
(10) And even after the disintegration of stone with ESWL, hydronephrosis remained due to ureteral stricture with small stone fragments.
(11) Cases of disintegrating pulmonary metastases are presented.
(12) To ascertain whether azo dyes are associated with risk of development of bladder tumors in workers who handpaint Yuzen-type silk kimonos in Kyoto, we investigated the disintegration of dyes to benzidine.
(13) During more extended exposure (60 and 90 days) the changes in hair cells of the spiral organ, which included nuclear deformation and disintegration of chromatin, mitochondria and endoplasmic reticulum membranes, became irreversible and caused the decay of injured cells.
(14) Corbyn’s ‘new politics’ is neither hateful nor pure: it’s complicated | John Harris Read more Their dilemma is plain: if they make a stand against what is happening, they stand accused of disloyalty by Corbyn’s supporters; but if they go along with it, they are complicit in Labour’s probable disintegration when voters realise the party has been taken over by people they can never vote for.
(15) The dissolution t50 and various pharmacokinetic parameters showed directly compressible starch and carboxymethylstarch to be the most effective disintegrants in the concentrations employed while magnesium aluminum silicate and microcrystalline cellulose were about equal but less effective than the previous disintegrants.
(16) At this stage it appeared as if the basement membrane had also begun to disintegrate.
(17) The effect of 5 per cent starch as a disintegrating agent in the tablet formulation was also studied.
(18) Finally they disintegrate to fragments which are mixed with MPS-granules.
(19) Incorporating polyvinylpyrrolidone, gelatin and methylcellulose binding agents in a metronidazole formulation alters the tensile strength, disintegration and dissolution times of the tablets by reducing their wettability as measured by the adhesion tension of water.
(20) Studies by light and electron microscopy showed that these histiocytes disintegrated to liberate their lamellar inclusions into the alveolar spaces, producing a picture reminiscent of alveolar proteinosis.
