(17) This study investigates the photoneutron field found in medical accelerator rooms with primary barriers constructed of metal slabs plus concrete.
(18) While a clearcut relationship cannot be established between heavy metal music and destructive behavior, evidence shows that such music promotes and supports patterns of drug abuse, promiscuous sexual activity, and violence.
(19) The physiologically important metal ion for catalysis is Mg2+; however, Mn2+ supports in vitro activity, though at a reduced level.
(20) We support the view that catalysis by metalloenzymes may be a reflection of the chemistry of the metal ion itself as a Lewis acid, and that perhaps too much emphasis has been placed on supposed special characteristics (such as strains, "entasis") of the enzyme-metal ion association.

(n.) One of the expanded ambulacra which form a rosette on the black of certain Echini.
