.... As a result, in order to demonstrate the existence of ¡¥qi¡¦ and make it conceivable by modern physicists, the use of the scientific method becomes the qi researchers¡¦ best tool. In addition, while qi and the atom were both conceived by ancient philosophers, the notion of the atom was better developed by scientists than the idea of qi. Therefore, by looking back at the historical progression towards a belief in atoms and the deduction of their structure, we know how scientists built up the atomic theory. Consequently, the concept of historical progression wi .....
Magnatism & The Things We Think We Know About It!

.... the case of iron, Fe, there are four. What happens then in the case of a
natural magnet the unpaired electrons line up or the magnet in a specific mannor.
That is all the atoms with unpaired electrons moving in a direction which
causes a certain charge are lined up on one side and all the atoms with the
opposite charge move to the other side. The atoms then start to cancel each
other out as they approach the center of the magnet. This all happens at the
currie point where these atoms are free to move and then when cooled and the
metel becomes sol .....

.... which describes his studies on the Galapagos Islands in the Pacific Ocean. He noticed that the species on the islands varied slightly from each island and were adapted to local conditions. The reaction to this theory was immediate. Biologists argued that Darwin could not prove his hypothesis. Other criticised his ideas of variation and how he could not prove how these variations came about or how they were passed on. This part of his theory was not answered until the birth of modern genetics in the early 20th century. In fact many scientists had do .....

.... poorly most of the time—often for a period of years—but their symptoms are milder than in major depression. Some people with dysthymia experience occasional episodes of major depression. Mental health professionals use the term clinical depression to refer to any of the above forms of depression.
Surveys indicate that people commonly view depression as a sign of personal weakness, but psychiatrists and psychologists view it as a real illness. In the United States, the National Institute of Mental Health has estimated that depression costs society many billions .....

.... conglomerate of ices and dust. Major proofs of the
snowball theory rest on various data. For one, of the observed gases and
meteoric particles that are ejected to provide the coma and tails of comets,
most of the gases are fragmentary molecules, or radicals, of the most common
elements in space: hydrogen, carbon, nitrogen, and oxygen. The radicals, for
example, of CH, NH, and OH may be broken away from the stable molecules CH4
(methane), NH3 (ammonia), and H2O (water), which may exist as ices or more
complex, very cold compounds in the nucleus. Another fact in support of the
snowball theory is that t .....

.... treatments, insurance
companies are keeping the cost of the premiums down but at the
same time not allowing their customers to use complementary
treatments such as chiropractic to prevent or cure illness. The
more rigid and restrictive the policy provisos, the more
assurance for the companies that they will maximize their bottom
lines. Therefore, patients of alternative therapies as well as
doctors must show that such unconventional treatment provides
relief and prevention of illness. “The total projected out-of-
pocket expenditure for unconvent .....

.... The same
occurs when forest stands are managed by humans.
Unless future credible research indicates otherwise, effort should be
made to manage a wide range of forest structures. Maintaining diversity would
be best served by using a broader range of management tools. Those would
include harvesting on federal land - not simply thinning - and increasing the
commitment to old-growth attributes on private forest land through
techniques such as retaining large trees and snags. As long as federal lands
are substantially committed to providing l .....

Prophase --------------------------------------- In this second stage changes to
the cell become visible. The chromosomes condense, coiling up to about 5% of
their original length, now clearly visible when a stain is added. The centrioles
move to the opposite poles of the cell and small microtubules around the
centrioles become visible (called "Asters"). The nuclear membranes and nucleolus
disintegrate after passing their nucleic acids to certain pairs of chromatids.
Now a spindle forms, this is al .....
