Due to (6.5), the ratios [[??].sub.N] and [[??].sub.N] for r = 1, r = 3 and r [greater than or equal to] 6 ought to be approximatively [2.sup.1/3] [approximately equal to] 1.26, [2.sup.1] = 2 and [2.sup.2] = 4, respectively.
This prompts the question of "how the infinite truth of God and his Logos can express itself, not just vaguely and approximatively but adequately, in the narrow vessel of human logic." (107)
For the evaluation of cell therapy, we have used 10 healthy male mongrel dogs (approximatively 2 two-year-old, body weight of 25 [+ or -] 5,6kg).
The procedure took approximatively three months for Bill Clinton (note that Nixon was not formally impeached, as he resigned before the vote from the House).
The dynamic variant was demonstrated to be approximatively 65% faster than its static counterpart.
When estimating different subsamples, we find that this negative trend becomes stronger after 1980 approximatively. This result confirms some of the results in the literature (Guscina, 2007) challenging the hypothesis of stability for the labour share.
[64]) Let C be a nonempty approximatively compact, convex subset of a locally convex space E, and suppose that [V.sub.c](C, E) is a compact map.
Puregraft permitted the cell extraction in around 100 minutes and our GID-SVF1 allowed us to isolate SVF in approximatively 90 minutes.
1.5 mM AMT, the CAT activity was significantly reduced (approximatively 5-fold) compared to untreated cells (Figure 1(b)).
In Figures 7(b) and 7(d), as parametric excitation dominates vortex excitation, beat phenomenon is broken in those cases, the pattern of each time history is a kind of "standing wave," where each has a repeating wave-unit but with mutually different profiles, and the number of wave-units is approximatively ranging from 2.5 to 3.5 and the profiles become more irregular.
Note that similar results about the delay statistics are shown in [43] for the approximatively 950 MHz and 2150 MHz cases.
