(n.) A moment; an instant; as, I will be ready in a jiffy.
(1) "I'm afraid Mr Pierrepoint is rather busy today, but he's got just one hanging before you, so we'll have you out of here in a jiffy.
(2) In the novel, Bilbo basically sleeps through the main bulk of the battle, and it's all over in a jiffy.
(3) But some harried office junior decided to post back the fragile glass plate in said Jiffy, with the inevitable consequences.
(4) They wish women could be "freeze-dried and quick and done in a jiffy".
(5) Stage shows feature monsters made out of Jiffy bags; in the new series, Fielding briefly sports a Polo as a monocle.
(6) It was alleged that he plotted with the couple and four other defendants to hinder the police investigation into hacking after Charlie Brooks was caught hiding a computer and other material including a Jiffy bag of porn DVDs behind a bin in the underground car park at the Chelsea home he shared with Rebekah Brooks.
(1) Sec-alpha-halo-nitro compounds are active antibacterial and antifungal agents, and the sec-bromo derivatives are the most active and stable.
(2) A temperature-sensitive mutant of Saccharomyces cerevisiae was identified which at the restrictive temperature of 37 degrees C is unable to secrete a number of cell wall-associated proteins and thus resembles previously reported sec mutants.
(3) The overall effect achieved with LTS was less than that with LTP, but it is possible to reduce IOP by selecting more reasonable parameters, e.g., a laser setting of 200mW, a 50 microns spot size and a 0.5 to 1-sec duration.
(4) Hydrostatic occlusion of arteries with 12 kPa (90 mmHg) for 30 sec did not affect endothelial morphology and fibrinolytic activity, but after occlusion for 5 or 20 min the endothelium in both arteries and veins was severely damaged.
(5) The hemolytic characteristics of 14 different polydimethyl-siloxane materials were studied, using a rotating disk device to shear whole human blood for 6000 sec.
(6) All are satisfied by [Formula: see text], where N is the size of rod signal, constant for threshold; theta, theta(D) are steady backgrounds of light and receptor noise; varphi is the threshold flash with sigma a constant of about 2.5 log td sec; B the fraction of pigment in the bleached state.
(7) To determine the visual threshold, the intensity of light was reduced, from 100 Lx (starting point) by 10 Lx steps in each trial, until the subject made 10 non-response trials (i.e., no dipper approach within 1.0 sec after the light onset) among 10 trials.
(8) sec.-1); b) an enhancement of fast (15-25 Hz) oscillations in the cortical spontaneous electrical activity and weakening and modification of the effects of the blockader of synthesis of MA-alpha-methyl-dioxiphenylalanine.
(9) As a conclusion sec-butanol, probably through its metabolite methyl-ethyl-ketone, is the most potent inducer of microsomal cytochrome P-450 in liver and kidney while iso-butanol does not alter total cytochrome P-450.
(10) Transient peripheral vasomotor constriction and heart rate increases were initiated within an 8- to 12-sec period following target detection with the predictable schedule, with subjects evincing greater responsivity than their nonpredictable schedule counterparts.
(11) The light rises to a peak in a few sec and then falls in 0.5-5 min to a new steady level that is always greater than the level in the absence of K.3.
(12) The contractile ring exists from about 20 sec after anaphase to the end of furrowing activity, i.e., 6-7 min at 20 degrees C. It is closely associated with the plasma membrane at all times, and is probably assembled there.
(13) The other mode of response had slower [Ca2+]i kinetics, in which 50 sec or more were required to double [Ca2+]i, which remained at this level throughout the observation period (2.5 min).
(14) The time for recovery to half maximal tension is about 0.68 sec, and restoration is complete at about 4 sec.2.
(15) The sec2-41 mutation exhibits synthetic lethality with the same subset of the late acting sec mutants as does sec4-8 and sec15-1.
(16) Skin displacement increased approximately linearly with increasing forces at the beginning of static stimulation, but over time (at least up to 20 sec), the relationship became negatively accelerated.
(17) (2) The Bunsen-Roscoe Law of Reciprocity was found to hold for the photoinduction of fruiting bodies for the interval 36 to 2000 sec with light of 448 nm.
(18) We studied the effects of 16,16-dimethyl prostaglandin E2 (dm-PGE2) and sofalcone, a new antiulcer agent developed in Japan, on ethanol damage to isolated surface epithelial cells (SEC) in vitro and gastric mucosa of rats in vivo.
(19) However, 80% or more of PGE2-Me was hydrolyzed rapidly and recovered as PGE2 in the brain within 15 sec post-injection.
(20) Twenty watts constant wave Nd-YAG laser operating at 1.06 micron was enough to produce complete A-V block in approximately 15 sec.
