(7) This makes The Red Pill a continuous, multi-voiced, up-to-the-minute male complaint nestled at the heart of the so-called manosphere – a network of websites preoccupied with both the men’s rights movement and how to pick up women.
(8) Patients may have difficulty in the transition from one packet of pills to the next, and missed pills that extend the hormone-free interval may contribute to the failure rate.
(9) Among women using the pill for 8 years, the relative risk was 2.6 (p0.0001).
(10) The finding is at variance with others that ascribe haemostatic changes observed to increased oestrogen content in a given pill formulation and so merits confirmation in a larger study.
(11) A mother is facing prosecution for procuring abortion pills for her then underage daughter.
(12) The amino acid pool in leukocytes was found to be smaller in those patients taking the "pill".
(13) Only 2% of the subjects refused to take any pills, and, among pill takers, over 95% were reported to be taking most of their pills at the end of the study.
(14) 88% of the women in the recent study had used the pill at some point and 45% had used an IUD--methods that were not available to women in the 1940s.
(15) The pill group gave birth on an average of 5.79 days after the date forecast by Naegele's rule and .15 days before the date calculated from the ultrasound examination.
(16) Treatments for jock itch include anti-fungal ointments and lotions, or anti-fungal pills for severe cases.
(17) The estrogen potencies of 9 oral contraceptive pills, Enovid-E, Enovid-5, Ovulen, Demulen, Norinyl+80, Norinyl+50, Ovral, Norlestrin 1 mg. and Norlestrin 2.5 mg., were determined by bioassay.
(18) Motor behavior of substitutes was assessed following dry swallows and following several stimuli: intraluminar injection of 30 ml of water or 0.1N hydrochloric acid and swallowing pills.
(19) Presumably the competitive binding of iron by ascorbic acid in the vitamin pill allowed uninhibited absorption of the iron.
(20) Ten women were taking an oral contraceptive containing 50 mug oestrogen and progestogen ("combined pill"), one patient took a progestogen-only contraceptive and 14 served as controls.
(n.) A very small brook; a streamlet.
(n.) See Rille.
(v. i.) To run a small stream.
(1) The authors have made investigations about the presence of pathogen mycobacteria in puddles of rain water and in rill waters of sanitary formations and municipal slaughter-house of Yaoundé.
(2) The treatment has used this rilling with laser (12 cases) an endoscopic microsurgery (4 cases) and open surgery 2 times.
(3) Similarly to Kracmar, Hauswirth and Rilling, we conclude that there is a transition from a sympathotonic or normotonic reaction situation into a parasympathotonic reaction situation after carrying out ML.
(4) The 13C NMR spectrum of isolated nucleosome core particles contains many sharp resonances, including resonances of alpha- and beta-carbons, indicating that certain terminal segments of histones rich in basic residues are highly mobile (Hilliard, R. R., Jr., Smith, R. M., and Rill, R. L. (1986) J. Biol.
(5) The magnitude of the neighbor-exclusion parameter, the changes in spectral properties of (Phen)2CuI induced by DNA binding, and the increase in DNA solution viscosity upon (Phen)2CuI addition are consistent with a model for DNA binding by (Phen)2CuI involving partial intercalation of one phenanthroline ring of the complex between DNA base pairs in the minor groove as suggested previously [Veal & Rill (1989) Biochemistry 28, 3243-3250].
(6) 7, 3138-3146) and to an active site protein fragment from avian liver FPP synthetase (Brems, D. N., Bruenger, E., and Rilling, H. C. (1981) Biochemistry 20, 3711-3718).
(7) Phosphorus uptake by Rilling sludge in the laboratory appears to be wholly biological, as it has an optimum pH range (7.7 to 9.7) and an optimum temperature range (24 to 37 C).
(8) Activated sludges obtained from the Rilling Road plant located at San Antonio, Tex., and from the Hyperion treatment plant located at Los Angeles, Calif., have the ability to remove all of the orthophosphate normally present in Tucson sewage within 3 hr after being added to the waste water.
(9) Michaelis constants of 0.5 muM for both isopentenyl pyrophosphate and geranyl pyrophosphate are 3-20-fold lower than those found for prenyltransferase from yeast or pig liver (Eberhardt, N., and Rilling, H. C. (1974), J. Biol.
(10) At the same mo-ment he is "cheered by the music of a thousand tinkling rills and rivulets whose veins are filled with the blood of winter which they are bearing off"; at other times he eavesdrops on "the faint wiry peep" of the baby woodcock being led by their mother through the swamp.
(11) Each trunk, perhaps no more than a century old, was understated, its bark finely indented as if little rills of water had run through grey sand.
(12) Biotonometry according to Rilling enables determination of HR and HC in healthy subjects.
