(5) He flew at weekends, in gliders and tandem-seat Chipmunks, with instructors who would occasionally let their students take control to try their hands at take-offs and landings.
(6) One of the beast's close relatives was the four-winged glider, the microraptor , which some scientists believe may also have been poisonous.
(7) Proliferative lesions were present in 14 macropods, 26 koalas, two wombats and 22 possums and gliders.
(8) On approaching landing, the wings would straighten again, allowing the ship to land like a glider, without the help of an engine.
(9) Six new species of Klossiella are described in the kidneys of Australian marsupials: Klossiella rufogrisei in Bennett's Wallaby, Macropus rufogriseus; Klossiella rufi in the Red Kangaroo, Macropus rufus; Klossiella thylogale in the Red-Bellied or Tasmanian Pademelon, Thylogale billardierii; Klossiella beveridgei in the Spectacled Hare-Wallaby, Lagorchestes conspicillatus; Klossiella bettongiae in the Tasmanian Bettong, Bettongia gaimardi; and Klossiella schoinobatis in the petaurid Greater Glider, Petauroides volans.
(10) But he was seen limping after flying a motorised hang glider with Siberian cranes in 2012, raising concerns about his health.
(11) 22 August 2010 A Swift S-1 aerobatic glider slams on to the runway at Shoreham airshow, breaking up the cockpit on impact.
(12) The lungs of five charadriiform species of bird, two of which are good divers and three predominantly flyers (soarers and gliders) have been analysed by morphometric techniques.
(13) 3 patients had survived a helicopter crash, 2 were injured while ejecting from combat aircraft, 3 were injured in crashes of light aircraft, 1 fell from a hand glider and 6 were injured in parachute drops.
(14) This report catalogues all spontaneous proliferations in macropods, koalas, wombats, and possums and gliders held by the Comparative Pathology Registry at Taronga Zoo.
(15) It is a complex system that brings together all manner of aircraft including passenger aeroplanes, military jets, helicopters, gliders and light aircraft.
(16) The greater glider, currently but incorrectly known as Schoinobates volans, is widely distributed in forested regions in eastern Australia.
(17) I thought of this while watching a Brazilian film about a hang-gliding champion sentenced to death and executed in Indonesia for smuggling 13kg of cocaine in a spar of his glider.
(18) First there was that leaked poster, which appeared to show the impish, emerald-skinned bomb chucker flying through the skies of Manhattan on his trademark glider.
(19) The effects of cortisol, ACTH, adrenalin and insulin on indices of carbohydrate, fat and protein metabolism were investigated in the conscious marsupial sugar glider Petaurus breviceps.
(20) We were at a mental health fundraiser, saw these hang gliders and decided to walk out there and cruise them.
(p. pr. & vb. n.) of Glide
(1) Cells with a mutation in their social motility system were 5- to 10-fold less cohesive and tended to glide as single cells.
(2) During flexion the lateral femoral condyle displays near extension pure rolling, near flexion pure gliding, on the medial side this ratio is vice versa.
(3) An algorithm is implemented to determine the form and phase shift for inconsistent type II quadrupoles for any space group having glide or screw-axis translations which are not a consequence of lattice centering.
(4) The data obtained suggest that at least some of the structures associated with gliding are heat sensitive and located on the cell surface, that the gliding mechanism requires an intact energy metabolism, and, finally, that gliding motility is an extremely stable genetic property of Mycoplasma sp.
(5) Since 1970, when the flexor tendon gliding mechanism of the finger has been damaged in the area of "no man's land" and conditions are less than optimal for conventional tendon grafting, the authors have attempted to graft a fascial tube including tendon and paratenon of the palmaris longus.
(6) In the audiological test battery, the significantly pathologic tests were discrimination of interrupted speech and evoked cortical responses to frequency glides (CRA-delta-f).
(7) Concentrate on the way he constructs the space of an interior or orchestrates a sensual camera movement that he invented himself - the camera gliding on unseen tracks in one direction while uncannily panning in another direction - and you perceive how each Dreyer film almost brutally reconstructs the universe rather than accepting it as a familiar given.
(8) Present surgical procedures for the repair of tendon injury are complicated by formation of peritendinous collagenous adhesions which restrict tendon gliding.
(9) An LSC colony spreads on the surface of solid 100:10 medium as a monolayer of cells in a fashion resembling that of certain swarming or gliding bacteria.
(10) Responses to rising and falling infrequent glides showed no consistent asymmetry.
(11) Bound, soluble, and whole-cell fractions of two strains of the gliding bacterium Vitreoscilla were found to contain two enzymes capable of hydrolyzing adenosine phosphates: a Mg(++)-activated adenosine triphosphatase with a temperature optimum of 37 C, and a Mg(++)-activated adenosine diphosphatase with a temperature optimum of 55 C. Both enzymes had an optimal pH response between 8.5 and 9.5.
(12) The ability to glide on a solid surface was inducible by calcium ion in Stigmatella aurantiaca.
(13) Three polyclonal B cell activators obtained from bacteria, lipopolysaccharide (LPS), peptidoglycan from Staphylococcus aureus, and gliding bacterial adjuvant from Cytophaga (GBA), were able to protect WEHI-231 cells from anti-IgM-induced growth arrest.
(14) Sea kayaking, wild swimming, rock climbing, mountain biking and hang gliding are hugely popular pastimes.
(15) However, the patent default of the legislator causes the protection of hobby and sport practice of hang-gliding to be either wholly inadequate or ruled by ambiguous regulations.
(16) A number of observations suggest that active movements of flagellar membrane glycoproteins are associated with the processes of whole cell gliding motility and the early events of fertilization in Chlamydomonas.
(17) The advantage of the technique is the low risk of gliding of the first thrust and the decreased need of assistance.
(18) For longer glide durations (greater than or equal to 200 ms) the DLI increased significantly as compared with shorter durations.
(19) Thus both explicit and implicit specifications of the horizon contribute to perception of the glide slope angle.
(20) The winger made Jonny Evans seem oafish as he feinted his way past him on the right and then glided 20 yards forward before racing into the box, past Jonas Olsson, and firing into the net despite an attempted block by Craig Dawson.
