magnet

 [mag´net]
an object having polarity (oppositely charged ends) and capable of attracting iron.

mag·net

(mag'net),
1. A body that has the property of attracting particles of iron, cobalt, nickel, or various other metallic alloys and that, when freely suspended, tends to assume a definite direction between the magnetic poles of the Earth (magnetic polarity).
2. A bar or horseshoe-shaped piece of iron or steel that has been made magnetic by contact with another magnet or, as in an electromagnet, by passage of electric current around a metallic (iron) core.
3. An electromagnet built in a cylindrical configuration to accommodate a patient in its core, for magnetic resonance imaging.

Q. hey guys! has anyone ever tried a chinese magnet to help a diet?? Somwone I know who is a chinse medicine healer, gave me a special magnet you stick to the right thumb of your hand to help evoid snack attacks. Did you ever hear anything about it?? did iot help anyone??

A. i tried magnets. not to dieting but magnets to the feet. supposed to help in giving energy while walking (i hike a lot). couldn't say i felt a big difference, but i only tried it for a day- so i don't know...

This media consists of a high density ultra-thin layer of magnetic material with a very smooth finish.
Hitachi Metals, Ltd declared that currently, Yantai Zhenghai Magnetic Material Co.
However, it was not known whether the surface and the interior of the magnetic material reacted to the applied field in the same way.
This proprietary magnetic material exhibits product quality stability, not the data-robbing fluctuations that had been feared to be present at such high densities," he said.
In addition to Japanese companies, Zhong Ke San Huan, Zhenghai Magnetic Material, Ningbo Yunsheng, Baotou Steel Rare-earth and other Chinese key enterprises also highlight high-performance NdFeB and have launched a number of projects to enhance the high-performance NdFeB capacity.
Although other media, such as the magnetic material in a hard drive, can store more data (SN:9/13/03, p.
In particular, engineers face one looming obstacle: Once data storage increases to a certain density, ambient temperature can erase the information recorded on magnetic material.
