(10) Passions are a kind of desire--namely, a habitual desire or an inclination (11)--that, Kant says, "can be conquered only with difficulty or not at all by the subject's reason." (12) Passions do permit reflection, unlike affects; but they prevent one from reflecting well by comparing them with other inclinations or with the sum of all inclinations.
(3) For a lower loading height (L = 2 or 3 cm), the highest efficiency occurs at the inclination angle [beta] = 15[degrees], and the CO emission increases with an increase in inclination angle.
In Figures 7A and 7B there are presented the change of the optoelectronic plummet position with the use of the machine spirit level- the plummet inclination at the alfa angle.
In summary, Aquinas's view of natural law is founded upon an understanding of the nature of the first principle of practical reason and its relation to the natural inclinations. What follows concerns some scholarly debate focused on the understanding of the precepts of natural law and practical reason as proceeding according to the order of natural inclinations.
Independent samples t-test was used to compare maxillary and mandibular incisor inclination of both the groups.

In particular it would be interesting to study prey capture success and the resulting growth rate and reproductive success in spiders that build webs of different inclination (and hence asymmetry) in greater detail as our previous study suggests that inclination is a significant determinant of prey capture success in the webs of this species (Tew & Hesselberg 2017).
Based on the present findings, the clinicians should be advised to select a light-curing unit tip with relatively small diameter and make the light-curing unit tip positioned perpendicular to the tooth-inclined surfaces when light cure the resin cement through zirconia restorations with a high cusp inclination. Moreover, since curing time significantly (p = 0.014) affects the DC of the resin cement in this study and the VH of specimens cured 40 s was higher, it seems that prolonging curing time is necessary and useful to improve the polymerization efficiency of resin cement [52].

The model with a neutral lower limb alignment was the model with square (0?[degrees]) inclination of the UKA tibial tray.
