A hypothetical explanation of cell duplication that holds that the daughter of a somatic division is the result of a series of linear metabolic pathways in which the initiation of a new pathway hinges on completion of a previous pathway
As negotiator for faculty in the great tenure wars, the AAUP aggressively presents faculty rationales for tenure, including the academic freedom rationale and the domino theory argument against any erosion of tenure protections (Sanchez 1996).
The domino theory takes over when the head of the chain, the house owner in this case, defaults on repayments; thousands did in the US when oil hit $100 a barrel and unemployment went up from four to five per cent.
I joined the guard for two reasons: First, I did not want to murder innocent Vietnamese civilians and justify it with a bogus domino theory, even though I was told I would be "winning the minds and hearts" of the people by killing men, women and children.
As one example, in writing my essay (1994) on the subject almost a decade ago, I remember being surprised at finding that Eisenhower expressed what I then considered an early belief in the domino theory, two years before assuming the presidency.
