(1) Mike Ashley told Lee Charnley that maybe he could talk with me last week but I said: ‘Listen, we cannot say too much so I think it’s better if we wait.’ The message Mike Ashley is sending is quite positive, but it was better to talk after we play Tottenham.” Benítez will ask Ashley for written assurances over his transfer budget, control of transfers and other spheres of club autonomy, but can also reassure the owner that the prospect of managing in the second tier holds few fears for him.

(3) The relation between genetic counseling and the procreation sphere among the studied families is presented.
(4) Despite Facebook's size and reach, and its much-vaunted role in the short-lived Arab spring , there are reasons for thinking that Twitter may be the more important service for the future of the public sphere – that is, the space in which democracies conduct public discussion.
(5) I care far more that women are absolutely essential to political life, influential at every level, and are leading dynamic conversations in the public sphere around social and cultural change.
(6) The algorithm is an improvement over the sphere model in that it considers two distinct surfaces: an ellipsoid, to model the region of the skull on which the sensors are placed, and a sphere as the medium in which the current dipole model is considered.
(7) The yolk spheres, which were free of precipitates, gave the characteristic signal of the nitrogen K-edge.
(8) In family therapy, the analysis of secret implies not only to define the network of the concerned persons, but also the definition of the bonds between the secret and loyalties, the distribution of power, the alliances and the definitions of the private sphere (proper to each family) and of the protective function of the secret.
