Abolitionism in the 1800s
This video is accompanied by text. "The crusade against slavery was the most significant of the reform era movements. Slavery existed in all of the original 13 American colonies, but by the middle of the eighteenth century some Americans began to speak out against human bondage.

The devotion of the Quakers was paralleled, in varying degrees, by other religions. As the Revolu
Dechanneling of 2 Mev Heâ ½ in gold
Thick gold single crystals of high quality were prepared for Rutherford Backscattering Dechanneling studies by electropolishing and annealing. The variation.; with temperature of the Random Fraction versus Depth spectrtnn for 2 MeV He+ on < 110> gold was extracted from measured Aligned and Random (Energy) Spectra. The measured dechanneling rate showed a sixfold increase in going from 4loK to 293°K and is in reasonable agreement with calculations made using the Steady Increase in Transverse Ener

The representation of type in grammatical design
Grammatical design is useful for the generation of a set of related designs. The concept of type aids designers in generating designs with a specified structure.

This is done with the help of a des
