.... hominines—the practice that is followed in this article. An
examination of the fossil record of the hominines reveals several biological and
behavioral trends characteristic of the hominine subfamily.
Bipedalism Two-legged walking, or bipedalism, seems to be one of the earliest of
the major hominine characteristics to have evolved. This form of locomotion led

Shortly after, Seaborg was able to isolate plutonium 239, an isotope used in
Plutonium is a highly dangerous and poisonous element because it rapidly

neutrons tightly bound together. .....

.... simple things, such as tripping or dropping things. Twitching or cramping of muscles and abnormal fatigue of the arms and legs may soon follow, causing difficulty in daily activities, such as walking or dressing.

.... the brain waves given off during these states. When the subconscious (subcon) or “Alpha” mind is responding, different commands, or suggestions, can be implemented into the mind. The subcon mind can then execute these imbedded commands without any intervening of the conscious mind and body (Hunter).
Hypnosis was first confirmed to be real by a Swedish therapist named Anton Mesmer around 1775. After publishing papers describing the Alpha Mind State, he named the entire process “Mesmerism”. When a person was hypnotized, they were considered .....

.... it can also attack your pocketbook. The costs of a single pack of cigarettes has raised substantially in recent years, from 1.75 in the late '80s too nearly over $3.00 now, that’s over $20.00 a carton. Think if you smoked two packs a day for 30 years, multiply that by the price of a pack a cigarettes (think about the fact that the price is almost certain to rise within that time), that’s a lot of money. Then you have the cleaning and air freshening bills about every 2 or 3 months. There would be cost to burns on your clothing and furniture.

.... of the
seventies, the protocol was generally referred to as just the Network Control Protocol or NCP. The term Internet was probably first applied to a 1973 research program that culminated in a demonstration system in 1977. It demonstrated networking through various mediums, including satellite, radio, telephone, ethernet, etc. using packet switching. And this formed the roots of the Transmission Control Protocol and Internet Protocol (TCP/IP). But it was not until 1983 that all nodes on ARPANET were required to use TCP/IP to connect to it.
Also in 1983, the .....
