(14) And I cherish stories of Fannie Lou Hamer singing “This Little Light of Mine ” just as much as I love tales of Harriet Tubman leading slaves home to the north – but tales of black exceptionalism are set in obvious contrast to the stereotypical and still resonant idea of lazy slaves and disenfranchised sharecroppers.

(1) There was no evidence for ocular trauma, disease, or vascular malformation by slit-lamp examination and gonioscopy.
(2) In normal kidneys fixed by perfusion with tannic acid and glutaraldehyde, glomerular slit diaphragms have been reported to consist of highly ordered and isoporous substructures with a zipper-like configuration.
(3) Neutral dextran clearances for radii greater than 30 A were elevated during the PEAK period, and, concurrently, there was extensive intraglomerular microthrombosis, obliteration of foot processes, and disruption of filtration slit diaphragms.
(4) Neovascular responses were evaluated by daily slit-lamp observations and terminal whole-mount and histologic examinations of colloidal carbon-perfused vessels.
(5) Only 5 or 6 patients could be examined per hour with the 60D slit-lamp compared with 30-35 examined by reading retinal photographs.
(6) This flap is formed by a triangle-shaped excision combined with cranial and caudal slitting of the periosteum.
(7) Negative slit smears for AFB from the nodules repeatedly and the histology of one on the skin nodules clinched the diagnosis of multicentric reticulohistiocytosis.
(8) Incisional slit grafting utilizes larger numbers of smaller grafts than does traditional punch grafting.
(9) After amputation of the closed tip, a cap from a syringe was inserted via a slit made at the base into one prong of a pair of nasal cannulae.
(10) The use of a standard 35 mm camera with a spot metering system to take slit-lamp photographs is described.
(11) Light scatter from epithelial cells in a slit-scan flow system is modeled using the Fraunhofer condition of scalar diffraction theory.
(12) Depending on the slit width of the illumination source, a typical endothelial photomicrograph contains three or four distinct zones.
(13) By using a slit plate, scanographic arterial studies can be performed with a tomographic attachment of an X-ray unit that is normally used for routine radiographic examinations.
(14) The present study, however, qualitatively evaluates the unsharpness of redundant shadows of the mandibular ramus, especially with reference to the effects of first-slit width.
(15) Microcirculation is clearly visible and can be observed on the conjunctival mucosa by means of any microscope and notably with the slit lamp microscope of ophtalmologists.
(16) The dark, luxury air in the silent bedrooms of empty riverside apartments, their identical curving blocks clustered in threes and fours, grim and silent as gill slits, will be theirs.
(17) For the purpose of covering the demerits of the conventional sliding tube, a new slit sliding tube which is made up of three parts was devised by us.

(19) Sequential photomicrographs of RBCs passing through interendothelial slits (IES) in walls of venous sinuses in rat spleen were obtained by video recording in vivo microscopic views.
(20) At both stages and with both dextran fractions the following results were obtained: (a) dextran was retained for up to 3 h (the longest interval studied) in the plasma at high concentration; (b) there was a sharp drop in the concentration of tracer between the inner, looser portions of the basement membrane (lamina rara interna) and its outer denser portions (lamina densa), (c) accumulation of dextran was seen in the mesangial areas with time; and (d) no accumulation of dextran was seen in the slits at any time.
