Today we resolve constitutional challenges to two provisions of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of We do not consider whether the Act embodies sound policies. We ask only whether Congress has the power under the Constitution to enact the challenged provisions. In our federal system, the National Government possesses only limited powers; the States and the people retain the remainder.
The place where most laboratory ultra-high pressure work is done. Two diamond faces separated by a thin gasket in the shape of an annulus.
The item to be pressurized is in fluid in the cell. When the diamond faces are pressed together, the gasket is deformed outward somewhat. The radial force on the gasket is only the cell pressure times the area of its vertical inner surface, whereas the normal force is the same pressure exerted by a diamond face times its surface area.
In other words, the gasket holds so long as the diamond-metal coefficient of friction is about greater than the ratio of the gasket's thickness to its width difference of inner and outer radii -- easily done.
DAC's are used mostly in spectroscopic studies: Electronic transport studies, on the other hand, are rare or unknown, because of the difficulty in putting leads through the gasket.
Network switching equipment for T1 lines and their subchannels. Dachshund A badger hound. Here's what I thought was a nonstandard mnemonic: Still, it's probably not the best way to learn. Here's an attractive one-webpage introduction to dactylic hexameter.
I've seen this used apparently unselfconsciously. Dad Informal or familiar expression for father.
Craning my neck constantly was too tiring, so mainly I watched what passed my father at knee level. One time I noticed that he was not wearing his usual shoes with laces, but something entirely different, smooth shoes with no laces.
His spats, which he always wore, were gone, too. My father was walking a dozen steps behind. This must have been an unusually unpleasant experience, for me to remember it so well.
I imagine this sort of thing must happen a lot, particularly to men. Men's clothing doesn't exhibit much variation at knee level.
Many times, standing in a store aisle, I've felt the hand of a small stranger grab a piece of my pants leg. Off Grape Road there's a guitar store called Hoosierdad's.
But puns don't really age so well. I haven't used it, but it's evidently a spreadsheet program with Matlab functionality. This might be attractive even, or perhaps especially, if you despise Matlab. A tree-structured machine intended for rule-based intelligent programs written in Parallel Lisp, say.
Much-faster-than-real-time speech recognition a target application. Seems like a half-hearted XARA.
A former policy of the US military. The military's policy on homosexuality used to be that homosexual activity was forbidden. Daedalus The first artificer or inventor, a sculptor of Greek mythology. Imprisoned on the island of King Minos, he made wings so he and his son Icarus could escape.
Icky didn't make it: But you knew that. D also killed a nephew who was apprenticed to him tricked him into diving off a cliff out of jealousy of the boy's inventiveness. The boy invented the comb, or saw, or the compass [the drafting tool] or whatever.
There are multiple versions of all the stories -- like Hollywood remakes. But I can't recall anyone ever getting credit for inventing the bag.Dear Twitpic Community - thank you for all the wonderful photos you have taken over the years.
We have now placed Twitpic in an archived state. In , Congress enacted the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act in order to increase the number of Americans covered by health insurance and decrease the cost of health care. Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of The Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of does not require which of the following?
