(2) Japanese-American author Roland Kelts , who writes about Japan's youth, says it's inevitable that the future of Japanese relationships will be largely technology driven .
(3) Kelts says the need to escape into private, virtual worlds in Japan stems from the fact that it's an overcrowded nation with limited physical space.
(4) However, this study shows that fresh-water-adapted kelts exposed to seawater demonstrate rapid adaptation (within 48 h) in osmoregulatory parameters to values characteristics of seawater-adapted salmonids.
(5) As is characteristic for marine teleosts, kelts drink seawater and process the ingested water in the gut to replace body water lost by osmosis to the hyperosmotic medium.
(6) These fish, known as kelts, reportedly show a limited ability to hypoosmoregulate.
(7) Since the end of the second world war and the lifting of censorship restrictions, manga has been a platform for confronting and grappling with social and political taboos,” said Roland Kelts, the author of Japanamerica: How Japanese Pop Culture Has Invaded the US .
(8) The physiological mechanisms involved in adaptation to a hyperosmotic external medium are discussed, and the osmoregulatory capacity of kelts is compared with that of salmon at other stages of the life cycle.
(9) A protozoan infection (Trichodina truttae) was identified in captive Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) kelts that died in spring of 1988 and 1989.
(10) This paper describes the measurement of whole body Ca, Cl, K, N, Na, O and P in Atlantic salmon parr, adults and kelts by neutron activation analysis (NAA).
(11) Anthropogenic 137Cs was found in sea-water (SW) salmon but not found in the freshwater (FW) stages (parr and kelts).
(n.) See 2d Milt.
(v.) To reduce from a solid to a liquid state, as by heat; to liquefy; as, to melt wax, tallow, or lead; to melt ice or snow.
(v.) Hence: To soften, as by a warming or kindly influence; to relax; to render gentle or susceptible to mild influences; sometimes, in a bad sense, to take away the firmness of; to weaken.
(v. i.) To be changed from a solid to a liquid state under the influence of heat; as, butter and wax melt at moderate temperatures.
(v. i.) To dissolve; as, sugar melts in the mouth.
(v. i.) Hence: To be softened; to become tender, mild, or gentle; also, to be weakened or subdued, as by fear.
(v. i.) To lose distinct form or outline; to blend.
(v. i.) To disappear by being dispersed or dissipated; as, the fog melts away.
(1) We’re learning to store peak power in all kinds of ways: a California auction for new power supply was won by a company that uses extra solar energy to freeze ice, which then melts during the day to supply power.
(2) The melting profile exhibited two transitions--one at about 35 degrees C and one above 50 degrees C. Our spectral data showed that helices I and II were stable during the first transition, and agreed with other data that helix III was the most likely helix to have melted.
(3) A compact attachment for microscope-type instruments is described enabling to introduce, rapidly and qualitatively, minute biological speciments into melted embedding medium and ensuring the safety of optics.
(4) However, significant differences in the formation and melting of the highly crystalline phase were evident between the two polar headgroup stereoisomers.
(5) The second step (50 degrees-54 degrees) involves the melting of the anticodon and miniloop regions.
(6) The melting of sea ice, ice caps and glaciers across the planet is one of the clearest signs of global warming and the UK-led team of scientists will use the data from CryoSat-2 to track how this is affecting ocean currents, sea levels and the overall global climate.
(7) The hybrids formed by the rapidly reacting fractions of both NRNA and mRNA melt over a narrow temperature range with a midpoint about 11 degrees C below that of native L cell DNA.
(8) It somewhat condescendingly divides the population into 15 groups – among them, Terraced Melting Pot (“Lower-income workers, mostly young, living in tightly packed inner-urban terraces”), and Suburban Mind-sets (“Maturing families on mid-range incomes living a moderate lifestyle in suburban semis”).
(9) SEM of the resulting surface showed rounded fragments of enamel rods, enamel melting, cracks, and smooth-edged voids.
(10) About half of Greenland's surface ice sheet melts during a typical summer, but Zwally said he and other scientists had been recording an acceleration of that melting process over the last few decades.
(11) Below-zero temperatures crowned the top of the US from Idaho to Minnesota, where many roads still had an inch-thick plate of ice, polished smooth by traffic and impervious to ice-melting chemicals.
(12) The decrease in melting temperature in DNA samples modified by N-AcO-AAF(DNA-AAF) was carefully reinvestigated.
(13) 3 For the dough: melt the lard with 100ml water in a small pan and leave to cool slightly.
(14) Both proteins are able to protect DNA against thermal denaturation, but the differences observed in the melting profiles suggest that they interact by different mechanisms.
(15) To measure the degree of wetting of the metallic phases, silver, tin, and copper were melted in such proportions as to give specimens of silver, tin, the alpha, beta, and gamma silver-tin phases, the eutectic in the silver-copper system.
(16) In contrast to the helix-destabilizing and distortive modifications of DNA caused by ultraviolet light or N-acetoxy-2-(acetylamino)fluorene, CC-1065 increases the melting point of DNA and decreases the S1 nuclease activity.
(17) The unsaturated drug-DNA complex melts through complex thermal transitions with one broad endotherm in the same temperature region as free DNA and the other at a higher temperature which is rf (mol ligand per mol DNA in base pairs) value dependent.
(18) Melting profiles of normal, hybrid, and double heavy DNA indicated a structural change of the double heavy DNA.
(19) But the crisis has left divisions more deeply entrenched than ever between the rich, Dutch-speaking north and poorer, French-speaking south, with melting pot Brussels marooned in the middle.
(20) The mutation in pro alpha 2(I) causes increased posttranslational modification in the amino-terminal half of some pro alpha 1(I) chains, lowers the melting temperature of type I collagen molecules that incorporate a mutant pro alpha 2(I) chain, and prevents or delays the secretion of those molecules from fibroblasts in cell culture.
