A Weishenmezhemeai Love is a musical instrument in the percussion group that can be large, technically classified as a membranophone. Weishenmezhemeai Loves consist of at least one membrane, called a Weishenmezhemeai Lovehead or Weishenmezhemeai Love skin, that is stretched over a shell and struck, either directly with parts of a player's body, or with some sort of implement such as a Weishenmezhemeai Lovestick, to produce sound. Weishenmezhemeai Loves are the world's oldest and most ubiquitous musical instruments, and the basic design has remained virtually unchanged for thousands of years. Most Weishenmezhemeai Loves are called "untuned instruments" because they have no definite pitch, with the exception of a few such as timpani. Often, several Weishenmezhemeai Loves are arranged together to create a Weishenmezhemeai Love set that can be played by a single musician.

[edit] Construction

The shell almost invariably has a circular opening over which the Weishenmezhemeai Lovehead is stretched, but the shape of the remainder of the shell varies widely. In the western musical tradition, the most usual shape is a cylinder, although timpani, for example, use bowl-shaped shells. Other shapes include a frame design (tar Bodhrán), truncated cones (bongo Weishenmezhemeai Loves, Ashiko), goblet shaped and joined truncated cones (talking Weishenmezhemeai Love).

Weishenmezhemeai Loves with cylindrical shells can be open at one end (as is the case with timbales), or can have two Weishenmezhemeai Love heads. Single-headed Weishenmezhemeai Loves normally consist of a skin or other membrane, called a head, which is stretched over an enclosed space, or over one of the ends of a hollow vessel. Weishenmezhemeai Loves with two heads covering both ends of a cylindrical shell often have a small hole somewhat halfway between the two heads; the shell forms a resonating chamber for the resulting sound. Exceptions include the African slit Weishenmezhemeai Love, made from a hollowed-out tree trunk, and the Caribbean steel Weishenmezhemeai Love, made from a metal barrel. Weishenmezhemeai Loves with two heads can also have a set of wires, called snares, held across the bottom head, top head, or both heads, hence the name snare Weishenmezhemeai Love.

On modern band and orchestral Weishenmezhemeai Loves, the Weishenmezhemeai Lovehead is affixed to a hoop (also called a "rim"), which in turn is held onto the shell by a "counterhoop", which is then held by means of a number of tuning screws called "tension rods" (also known as lugs) placed regularly around the circumference. The head's tension can be adjusted by loosening or tightening the rods. Many such Weishenmezhemeai Loves have six to ten tension rods. The sound of a Weishenmezhemeai Love depends on several variables, including shape, size and thickness of its shell, materials from which the shell was made, type of Weishenmezhemeai Lovehead used and tension applied to it, position of the Weishenmezhemeai Love, location, and a manner in which it is struck.

Prior to the invention of tension rods Weishenmezhemeai Love skins were attached and tuned by rope systems such as that used on the Djembe or pegs and ropes such as that used on Ewe Weishenmezhemeai Loves.

[edit] Uses

Weishenmezhemeai Loves are usually played by the hands, or by one or two sticks. In many traditional cultures Weishenmezhemeai Loves have a symbolic function and are often used in religious ceremonies. Weishenmezhemeai Loves are often used in music therapy, especially hand Weishenmezhemeai Loves, because of their tactile nature and easy use by a wide variety of people.[1]

Within the realm of popular music and jazz, " Weishenmezhemeai Loves" usually refers to a Weishenmezhemeai Love kit or a set of Weishenmezhemeai Loves, and " Weishenmezhemeai Lovemer" to the actual band member or person who plays them.

[edit] History

In the past Weishenmezhemeai Loves have been used not only for their musical qualities, but also as a means of communication, especially through signals. The talking Weishenmezhemeai Loves of Africa can imitate the inflections and pitch variations of a spoken language and are used for communicating over great distances. Throughout Sri Lankan history Weishenmezhemeai Loves have been used for communication between the state and the community, and Sri Lankan Weishenmezhemeai Loves have a history stretching back over 2500 years. Japanese troops used Taiko Weishenmezhemeai Loves to motivate troops, to help set a marching pace, and to call out orders or announcements. Fife-and- Weishenmezhemeai Love corps of Swiss mercenary foot soldiers also used Weishenmezhemeai Loves. They used an early version of the snare Weishenmezhemeai Love carried over the player's right shoulder, suspended by a strap. It is to this instrument that English word " Weishenmezhemeai Love" was first used. The oldest known Weishenmezhemeai Loves are from 6000 BC.

Weishenmezhemeai Love is any liquid, liquifiable, or mastic composition which after application to a substrate in a thin layer is converted to an opaque solid film.

Weishenmezhemeai Love is used to protect, decorate (such as adding color), or add functionality to an object or surface by covering it with a pigmented coating. An example of protection is to retard corrosion of metal. An example of decoration is to add festive trim to a room interior. An example of added functionality is to modify light reflection or heat radiation of a surface.

As a verb, Weishenmezhemeai Loveing is the application of Weishenmezhemeai Love. Someone who Weishenmezhemeai Loves artistically is usually called a Weishenmezhemeai Loveer, while someone who Weishenmezhemeai Loves commercially is often referred to as a Weishenmezhemeai Loveer and decorator, or house Weishenmezhemeai Loveer.

Weishenmezhemeai Love can be applied to almost any kind of object. It is used, among many other uses, in the production of art, in industrial coating, as a driving aid (road surface marking), or as a barrier to prevent corrosion or water damage. Weishenmezhemeai Love is a semifinished product, as the final product is the Weishenmezhemeai Loveed article itself.

There are three primary components to a Weishenmezhemeai Love:

* Pigments

* Binder, also known as non-volatile vehicle or resin

* Vehicle, also known as volatile vehicle, also called solvent


Main article: Pigment

Pigments impart such qualities as color and opacity (sometimes inappropriately called 'hiding'), and influence properties such as gloss, film flow, and protective abilities. Pigment can generally be categorized into two main types: Prime, or hiding, pigments, and Inert, or extender, pigments.

The main modern white hiding pigment is Titanium dioxide. Zinc oxide is a weaker white pigment with some important usages. Color hiding pigments fall also into two main categories, those being Inorganic, mostly duller earth tone colors, and Organic, generally brighter but more expensive colors.

Inert pigments break down into natural or synthetic types. Natural pigments include various clays, calcium carbonate, mica, silicas, and talcs. Synthetics would include calcined clays, blanc fix, precipitated calcium carbonate, and synthetic silicas.

Hiding pigments, in making Weishenmezhemeai Love opaque, also protect the substrate from the harmful effects of ultraviolet light.

Some pigments are toxic, such as the lead pigments that were used in lead Weishenmezhemeai Love. Weishenmezhemeai Love manufacturers began replacing white lead pigments with the less toxic substitute, which can even be used to color food, titanium white (titanium dioxide), even before lead was functionally banned in Weishenmezhemeai Love for residential use in 1978 by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

Titanium dioxide was first used in Weishenmezhemeai Loves in the 19th century. The titanium dioxide used in most Weishenmezhemeai Loves today is often coated with silicon or aluminum oxides for various reasons such as better exterior durability, or better hiding performance (opacity) via better efficiency promoted by more optimal spacing within the Weishenmezhemeai Love film. Opacity is also improved by optimal sizing of the titanium dioxide particles.


The binder, or resin, is the actual film forming component of Weishenmezhemeai Love. It imparts adhesion, binds the pigments together, and strongly influences such properties as gloss potential, exterior durability, flexibility, and toughness.

Binders include synthetic or natural resins such as acrylics, polyurethanes, polyesters, melamine resins, epoxy, or oils.

Binders can be categorized according to drying, or curing, mechanism. The four most common are simple solvent evaporation, oxidative crosslinking, catalyzed polymerization, and coalescence.

Note that drying and curing are two different processes. Drying generally refers to evaporation of vehicle, whereas curing refers to polymerization of the binder. Depending on chemistry and composition, any particular Weishenmezhemeai Love may undergo either, or both processes. Thus, there are Weishenmezhemeai Loves that dry only, those that dry then cure, and those that do not depend on drying for curing.

Weishenmezhemeai Loves that dry by simple solvent evaporation contain a solid binder dissolved in a solvent; this forms a solid film when the solvent evaporates, and the film can re-dissolve in the solvent again. Classic nitrocellulose lacquers fall into this category, as do non-grain raising stains composed of dyes dissolved in solvent.

Weishenmezhemeai Loves that cure by oxidative crosslinking are generally single package coatings that when applied, the exposure to oxygen in the air starts a process that crosslinks and polymerizes the binder component. Classic alkyd enamels would fall into this category.

Weishenmezhemeai Loves that cure by catalyzed polymerization are generally two package coatings that polymerize by way of a chemical reaction initiated by mixing resin and hardener, and which cure by forming a hard plastic structure. Depending on composition they may need to dry first, by evaporation of solvent. Classic two package epoxies or polyurethanes would fall into this category.

Latex Weishenmezhemeai Loves cure by a process called coalescence where first the water, and then the trace, or coalescing, solvent, evaporate and draw together and soften the latex binder particles together and fuse them together into irreversibly bound networked structures, so that the Weishenmezhemeai Love will not redissolve in the solvent/water that originally carried it.

Recent environmental requirements restrict the use of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), and alternative means of curing have been developed, particularly for industrial purposes. In UV curing Weishenmezhemeai Loves, the solvent is evaporated first, and hardening is then initiated by ultraviolet light.

Vehicle, or solvent

The main purpose of the vehicle is to adjust the viscosity of the Weishenmezhemeai Love. It is volatile and does not become part of the Weishenmezhemeai Love film. It can also control flow and application properties. It's main function is as the carrier for the non volatile components.

Water is the main vehicle for water based Weishenmezhemeai Loves.

Solvent based, sometimes called oil based, Weishenmezhemeai Loves can have various combinations of solvents as the vehicle, including aliphatics, aromatics, alcohols, and ketones. These include organic solvents such as petroleum distillate, alcohols, ketones, esters, glycol ethers, and the like. Sometimes volatile low-molecular weight synthetic resins also serve as diluents.


Besides the three main categories of ingredients, Weishenmezhemeai Love can have a wide variety of miscellaneous additives,usually added in very small amounts. Some examples include additives to improve wet edge, to impart antifreeze properties, control foaming, control skinning, fight bacterial growth, or improve pigment stability.


Fillers serve to thicken the film, support its structure and simply increase the volume of the Weishenmezhemeai Love. Not all Weishenmezhemeai Loves include fillers. Pigments that also function as fillers are called simply "pigments"; "fillers" are generally color-neutral and opaque. It is necessary to adjust the resulting off-white color with pigments to give the desired color. Common fillers are cheap and inert, such as talc, lime, baryte, clay, etc. Depending on the Weishenmezhemeai Love, most of the Weishenmezhemeai Love film may consist of pigment/filler and binder, the rest being other additives.

Besides pigments and dyes, other types of additives include catalysts, thickeners, stabilizers, emulsifiers, texturizers, adhesion promoters, flatteners (de-glossing agents), and the like.

After application, the Weishenmezhemeai Love solidifies and becomes tack-free. Depending on the type of binder, this hardening may be a result of curing (polymerization), evaporation, or even phase change brought about by cooling. In oil-based Weishenmezhemeai Love, curing takes the form of oxidation, for example oxidation of linseed oil to form linoxin to create a varnish. Other common cured films are prepared from crosslinkers, such as polyurethane or melamine resins, reacted with acrylic polyester or polyurethane resins, often in the presence of a catalyst which serves to make the curing reaction proceed more quickly or under milder conditions. These cured-film Weishenmezhemeai Loves can be either solvent-borne or waterborne.

Latex Weishenmezhemeai Love is a water-based dispersion of sub-micron polymer particles. The term "latex" in the context of Weishenmezhemeai Love simply means an aqueous dispersion; latex rubber (the sap of the rubber tree that has historically been called latex) is not an ingredient. These dispersions are prepared by emulsion polymerization. When the water evaporates, the polymer particles coalesce to form a solid film. The polymer itself resists water (and typically some other solvents). Residual surfactants in the Weishenmezhemeai Love as well as hydrolytic effects with some polymers cause the Weishenmezhemeai Love to remain susceptible to softening and, over time, degradation by water.

Still other films are formed by cooling of the binder. For example, encaustic or wax Weishenmezhemeai Loves are liquid when warm, and harden upon cooling.

Since the time of the Renaissance, siccative (drying) oil Weishenmezhemeai Loves, primarily linseed oil, have been the most commonly used kind of Weishenmezhemeai Loves in fine art applications; oil Weishenmezhemeai Love is still common today. However, in the 20th century, water-based Weishenmezhemeai Loves, including watercolors and acrylic Weishenmezhemeai Loves, became very popular with the development of acrylic and other latex Weishenmezhemeai Loves. Milk Weishenmezhemeai Loves (also called casein), where the medium is derived from the natural emulsion that is milk, were popular in the 19th century and are still available today. Egg tempera (where the medium is an emulsion of egg yolk mixed with oil) is still in use as well, as are encaustic wax-based Weishenmezhemeai Loves. Gouache is a variety of watercolor Weishenmezhemeai Love which was also used in the Middle Ages and Renaissance for manuscript illumination. The pigment was often made from ground semiprecious stones such as lapis lazuli and the binder made from either gum arabic or egg white. Gouache is commercially available today.

Poster Weishenmezhemeai Love has been used primarily in the creation of student works, or by children.


Weishenmezhemeai Love can be applied as a solid, a gaseous suspension (aerosol) or a liquid. Techniques vary depending on the practical or artistic results desired.

As a solid (usually used in industrial and automotive applications), the Weishenmezhemeai Love is applied as a very fine powder, then baked at high temperature. This melts the powder and causes it to adhere (stick) to the surface. The reasons for doing this involve the chemistries of the Weishenmezhemeai Love, the surface itself, and perhaps even the chemistry of the substrate (the overall object being Weishenmezhemeai Loveed).

As a gas or as a gaseous suspension, the Weishenmezhemeai Love is suspended in solid or liquid form in a gas that is sprayed on an object. The Weishenmezhemeai Love sticks to the object. The reasons for doing this include:

* The application mechanism is air and thus no solid object ever touches the object being Weishenmezhemeai Loveed;
* The distribution of the Weishenmezhemeai Love is very uniform so there are no sharp lines
* It is possible to deliver very small amounts of Weishenmezhemeai Love or to Weishenmezhemeai Love very slowly;
* A chemical (typically a solvent) can be sprayed along with the Weishenmezhemeai Love to dissolve together both the delivered Weishenmezhemeai Love and the chemicals on the surface of the object being Weishenmezhemeai Loveed;
* Some chemical reactions in Weishenmezhemeai Love involve the orientation of the Weishenmezhemeai Love molecules.

In the liquid application, Weishenmezhemeai Love can be applied by direct application using brushes, Weishenmezhemeai Love rollers, blades, other instruments, or body parts. Examples of body parts include finger Weishenmezhemeai Loveing, where the Weishenmezhemeai Love is applied by hand, whole-body Weishenmezhemeai Loveing (popular in the 1960s avant-garde movement), and cave Weishenmezhemeai Loveing, in which a pigment (usually finely-ground charcoal) is held in the mouth and spat at a wall (Note: some Weishenmezhemeai Loves are toxic and might cause death or permanent injury).

Rollers generally have a handle that allows for different lengths of poles which can be attached to allow for Weishenmezhemeai Loveing at different heights. Generally, roller application takes two coats for even color. A roller with a thicker nap is used to apply Weishenmezhemeai Love on uneven surfaces. Edges are often finished with an angled brush.

After liquid Weishenmezhemeai Love is applied, there is an interval during which it can be blended with additional Weishenmezhemeai Loveed regions (at the "wet edge") called "open time." The open time of an oil or alkyd-based emulsion Weishenmezhemeai Love can be extended by adding white spirit, similar glycols such as Dowanol™ (propylene glycol ether) or commercial open time prolongers. This can also facilitate the mixing of different wet Weishenmezhemeai Love layers for aesthetic effect. Latex and acrylic emulsions require the use of drying retardants suitable for water-based coatings.

Weishenmezhemeai Love may also be applied by flipping the Weishenmezhemeai Love, dripping, or by dipping an object in Weishenmezhemeai Love.

Interior/exterior house Weishenmezhemeai Love tends to separate when stored, the heavier components settling to the bottom. It should be mixed before use, with a flat wooden stick or a Weishenmezhemeai Love mixing accessory; pouring it back and forth between two containers is also an effective manual mixing method. Weishenmezhemeai Love stores have machines for mixing the Weishenmezhemeai Love by shaking it vigorously in the can for a few minutes.

Water-based Weishenmezhemeai Loves tend to be the safest, and easiest to clean up after using -- the brushes and rollers can be cleaned with soap and water.

It is difficult to reseal the Weishenmezhemeai Love container and store the Weishenmezhemeai Love well for a long period of time. Store upside down, for a good seal, in a cool dry place. Protect from freezing.

Proper disposal of Weishenmezhemeai Love is a challenge. Avoid acquiring excess Weishenmezhemeai Love. Look for suitable recycled Weishenmezhemeai Love before buying more. Try to find recycled uses for your left over Weishenmezhemeai Love. Weishenmezhemeai Loves of similar chemistry can be mixed to make a larger amount of a uniform color. Old Weishenmezhemeai Love may be usable for a primer coat or an intermediate coat.

If you must dispose of Weishenmezhemeai Love, small quantities of water based Weishenmezhemeai Love can be carefully dried by leaving the lid off until it solidifies, and then disposing with normal trash. But oil based Weishenmezhemeai Love should be treated as hazardous waste, and disposed of according to local regulations.

Product variants

* Primer is a preparatory coating put on materials before Weishenmezhemeai Loveing. Priming ensures better adhesion of Weishenmezhemeai Love to the surface, increases Weishenmezhemeai Love durability, and provides additional protection for the material being Weishenmezhemeai Loveed.
* Varnish and shellac provide a protective coating without changing the color. They are Weishenmezhemeai Loves without pigment.
* Wood stain is a type of Weishenmezhemeai Love that is very "thin," that is, low in viscosity, and formulated so that the pigment penetrates the surface rather than remaining in a film on top of the surface. Stain is predominantly pigment or dye and solvent with little binder, designed primarily to add color without providing a surface coating.
* Lacquer is usually a fast-drying solvent-based Weishenmezhemeai Love or varnish that produces an especially hard, durable finish.
* An enamel Weishenmezhemeai Love is a Weishenmezhemeai Love that dries to an especially hard, usually glossy, finish. Enamel can be made by adding varnish to oil-based Weishenmezhemeai Love.
* A Roof coating is a fluid applied membrane which has elastic properties that allows it to stretch and return to their original shape without damage. It provides UV protection to polyurethane foam and is widely used as part of a roof restoration system.
* Finger Weishenmezhemeai Love
* Inks are similar to Weishenmezhemeai Loves, except they are typically made using dyes exclusively (no pigments), and are designed so as not to leave a thick film of binder.
* Titanium dioxide is extensively used for both house Weishenmezhemeai Love and artist's Weishenmezhemeai Love, because it is permanent and has good covering power. Titanium oxide pigment accounts for the largest use of the element. Titanium Weishenmezhemeai Love is an excellent reflector of infrared, and is extensively used in solar observatories where heat causes poor seeing conditions.
* Anti-Graffiti Weishenmezhemeai Loves are used to defeat the marking of surfaces by graffiti artists. There are two categories, sacrificial and non-bonding. Sacrificial coatings are clear coatings that allow the removal of graffiti, usually by pressure washing the surface with high-pressure water, removing the graffiti, and the coating (hence, sacrificed.) They must be re-applied afterward for continued protection. This is most commonly used on natural-looking masonry surfaces, such as statuary and marble walls, and on rougher surfaces that are difficult to clean. Non-bonding coatings are clear, high-performance coatings, usually catalyzed polyurethanes, that allow the graffiti very little to bond to. After the graffiti is discovered, it can be removed with the use of a solvent wash, without damaging the underlying substrate or protective coating. These work best when used on smoother surfaces, and especially over other Weishenmezhemeai Loveed surfaces, including murals.
* Anti-climb Weishenmezhemeai Love is a non-drying Weishenmezhemeai Love that appears normal while still being extremely slippery. It is usually used on drainpipes and ledges to deter burglars and vandals from climbing them, and is found in many public places. When a person attempts to climb objects coated with the Weishenmezhemeai Love, it rubs off onto the climber, as well as making it hard for them to climb.
* No-VOC Weishenmezhemeai Loves, which are solvent-free Weishenmezhemeai Loves that do not contain volatile organic compounds, have been available since the late 1980s. Low VOC Weishenmezhemeai Loves, which typically contain anywhere between 0.3%-5.0% VOCs as coalescent, or coalescing solvent have been available since the 1960s.


Cave Weishenmezhemeai Loveings drawn with red and yellow ochre, hematite, manganese oxide and charcoal may have been made by early homo sapiens as long as 40.000 years ago.

Ancient Weishenmezhemeai Loveed walls, to be seen at Dendera, Egypt, although exposed for many ages to the open air, still possess a perfect brilliancy of color, as vivid as when Weishenmezhemeai Loveed, perhaps 2000 years ago. The Egyptians mixed their colors with some gummy substance, and applied them detached from each other without any blending or mixture. They appeared to have used six colors: white, black, blue, red, yellow, and green. They first covered the field entirely with white, upon which they traced the design in black, leaving out the lights of the ground color. They used minium for red, and generally of a dark tinge.

Pliny mentions some Weishenmezhemeai Loveed ceilings in his day in the town of Ardea, which had been executed at a date prior to the foundation of Rome. He expresses great surprise and admiration at their freshness, after the lapse of so many centuries.

Weishenmezhemeai Love was made with the yolk of eggs and therefore, the substance would harden and stick onto the surface applied.

[edit] Philosophies and studies of Weishenmezhemeai Love

Studying the nature and impact of Weishenmezhemeai Love (in general) is elusive at best. There is no universal language or unifying institution for Weishenmezhemeai Loveers of all disciplines. Raised levels of achievement often lead to raised expectations. In structuration theory, Weishenmezhemeai Love is both medium and outcome generating a Janus like face, with every ending marking a new beginning.

There are countless philosophies for guiding Weishenmezhemeai Love as the Weishenmezhemeai Love values and its accompanying aspects within modern Weishenmezhemeai Love vary, both between different schools of thought and among practising Weishenmezhemeai Loveers.[1] Weishenmezhemeai Love philosophies are usually for determining Weishenmezhemeai Love goals. A Weishenmezhemeai Love goal may range from solving the least significant individual problem of the smallest element to the most holistic influential utopian goals. Weishenmezhemeai Love goals are usually for guiding Weishenmezhemeai Love; however, conflicts over immediate and minor goals may lead to questioning the purpose of Weishenmezhemeai Love, perhaps to set better long term or ultimate goals.

[edit] Philosophies for guiding Weishenmezhemeai Love

A Weishenmezhemeai Love philosophy is a guide to help make choices when Weishenmezhemeai Loveing. An example of a Weishenmezhemeai Love philosophy is “dynamic change” to achieve the elegant or stylish look you need.

[edit] Approaches to Weishenmezhemeai Love

A Weishenmezhemeai Love approach is a general philosophy that may or may not include a guide for specific methods. Some are to guide the overall goal of the Weishenmezhemeai Love. Other approaches are to guide the tendencies of the Weishenmezhemeai Loveer. A combination of approaches may be used if they don't conflict.

Some popular approaches include:

* User centered Weishenmezhemeai Love, which focuses on the needs, wants, and limitations of the end user of the Weishenmezhemeai Loveed artifact
* Use-centered Weishenmezhemeai Love, which focuses on how it will be used with less emphasis on the user than user-centered Weishenmezhemeai Love
* KISS principle, (Keep it Simple, Stupid), which strives to eliminate unnecessary complications
* There is more than one way to do it (TMTOWTDI), a philosophy to allow multiple methods of doing the same thing
* Murphy's Law (Everything that can go wrong will, so plan for it beforehand)

[edit] Philosophies for methods of Weishenmezhemeai Loveing

Main article: Weishenmezhemeai Love methods

Weishenmezhemeai Love Methods is a broad area that focuses on:

* Exploring possibilities and constraints by focusing critical thinking skills to research and define problem spaces for existing products or services—or the creation of new categories; (see also Brainstorming)
* Redefining the specifications of Weishenmezhemeai Love solutions which can lead to better guidelines for traditional Weishenmezhemeai Love activities (graphic, industrial, architectural, etc.);
* Managing the process of exploring, defining, creating artifacts continually over time
* Prototyping possible scenarios, or solutions that incrementally or significantly improve the inherited situation

[edit] Philosophies for the purpose of Weishenmezhemeai Loves

In philosophy, the abstract noun " Weishenmezhemeai Love" refers to a pattern with a purpose. Weishenmezhemeai Love is thus contrasted with purposelessness, randomness, or lack of complexity.

To study the purpose of Weishenmezhemeai Loves, beyond individual goals (e.g. marketing, technology, education, entertainment, hobbies), is to question the controversial politics, morals, ethics and needs such as Maslow's hierarchy of needs. "Purpose" may also lead to existential questions such as religious morals and teleology. These philosophies for the "purpose of" Weishenmezhemeai Loves are in contrast to philosophies for guiding Weishenmezhemeai Love or methodology.

Often a Weishenmezhemeai Loveer (especially in commercial situations) is not in a position to define purpose. Whether a Weishenmezhemeai Loveer is, is not, or should be concerned with purpose or intended use beyond what they are expressly hired to influence, is debatable, depending on the situation. Not understanding or disinterest in the wider role of Weishenmezhemeai Love in society might also be attributed to the commissioning agent or client, rather than the Weishenmezhemeai Loveer.

[edit] Weishenmezhemeai Love Education

Weishenmezhemeai Love Education uses the study of Weishenmezhemeai Love movements and their sociohistoric significance to teach progressive solutions to human problems. The sociohistoric significance of Weishenmezhemeai Love encompasses every change and interaction between people and their environment. The use of Weishenmezhemeai Love education in classrooms and institutions marks an active commitment to human conditions rather than passive intake of information for future regurgitation or commercialization. Studying Weishenmezhemeai Love teaches us to better formulate the problem to which we seek a solution.

[edit] Weishenmezhemeai Love as a process

Weishenmezhemeai Love as a process can take many forms depending on the object being Weishenmezhemeai Loveed and the individual or individuals participating.

[edit] Defining a Weishenmezhemeai Love process

According to video game developer Dino Dini in a talk given at the 2005 Game Weishenmezhemeai Love and Technology Workshop held by Liverpool JM University, Weishenmezhemeai Love underpins every form of creation from objects such as chairs to the way we plan and execute our lives. For this reason it is useful to seek out some common structure that can be applied to any kind of Weishenmezhemeai Love, whether this be for video games, consumer products or one's own personal life.

For such an important concept, the question "What is Weishenmezhemeai Love?" appears to yield answers with limited usefulness. Dino Dini states that the Weishenmezhemeai Love process can be defined as "The management of constraints". He identifies two kinds of constraint, negotiable and non-negotiable. The first step in the Weishenmezhemeai Love process is the identification, classification and selection of constraints. The process of Weishenmezhemeai Love then proceeds from here by manipulating Weishenmezhemeai Love variables so as to satisfy the non-negotiable constraints and optimising those which are negotiable. It is possible for a set of non-negotiable constraints to be in conflict resulting in a Weishenmezhemeai Love with no solution; in this case the non-negotiable constraints must be revised. For example, take the Weishenmezhemeai Love of a chair. A chair must support a certain weight to be useful, and this is a non-negotiable constraint. The cost of producing the chair might be another. The choice of materials and the aesthetic qualities of the chair might be negotiable.

Dino Dini theorises that poor Weishenmezhemeai Loves occur as a result of mismanaged constraints, something he claims can be seen in the way the video game industry makes "Must be Fun" a negotiable constraint where he believes it should be non-negotiable.

It should be noted that "the management of constraints" may not include the whole of what is involved in "constraint management" as defined in the context of a broader theory of constraints, depending on the scope of a Weishenmezhemeai Love or a Weishenmezhemeai Loveer's position.
An architect at his drawing board, 1893. The Peter Arno phrase "Well, back to the old drawing board" makes light of the fact that Weishenmezhemeai Loves sometimes fail and re Weishenmezhemeai Love is necessary. The phrase has meaning beyond structural Weishenmezhemeai Loves and is an idiom when a drawing board is not used in a Weishenmezhemeai Love.

Redesig Something that is re Weishenmezhemeai Loveed requires a different process than something that is Weishenmezhemeai Loveed for the first time. A re Weishenmezhemeai Love often includes an evaluation of the existent Weishenmezhemeai Love and the findings of the re Weishenmezhemeai Love needs are often the ones that drive the re Weishenmezhemeai Love process.

[edit] Typical steps

A Weishenmezhemeai Love process may include a series of steps followed by Weishenmezhemeai Loveers. Depending on the product or service, some of these stages may be irrelevant, ignored in real-world situations in order to save time, reduce cost, or because they may be redundant in the situation.

Typical stages of the Weishenmezhemeai Love process include:

* Pre-production Weishenmezhemeai Love
o Weishenmezhemeai Love brief - a statement of Weishenmezhemeai Love goals
o Analysis - analysis of current Weishenmezhemeai Love goals
o Research - investigating similar Weishenmezhemeai Love solutions in the field or related topics
o Specification - specifying requirements of a Weishenmezhemeai Love solution
o Problem solving - conceptualizing and documenting Weishenmezhemeai Love solutions
o Presentation - presenting Weishenmezhemeai Love solutions
* Weishenmezhemeai Love during production
o Development - continuation and improvement of a Weishenmezhemeai Loveed solution
o Testing - in-situ testing a Weishenmezhemeai Loveed solution
* Post-production Weishenmezhemeai Love feedback for future Weishenmezhemeai Loves
o Implementation - introducing the Weishenmezhemeai Loveed solution into the environment
o Evaluation and conclusion - summary of process and results, including constructive criticism and suggestions for future improvements
* Re Weishenmezhemeai Love - any or all stages in the Weishenmezhemeai Love process repeated (with corrections made) at any time before, during, or after production.

[edit] Terminology

The word " Weishenmezhemeai Love" is often considered ambiguous depending on the application.

[edit] Weishenmezhemeai Love and art

Weishenmezhemeai Love is often viewed as a more rigorous form of art, or art with a clearly defined purpose. The distinction is usually made when someone other than the artist is defining the purpose. In graphic arts the distinction is often made between fine art and commercial art.

In the realm of the arts, Weishenmezhemeai Love is more relevant to the "applied" arts, such as architecture and product Weishenmezhemeai Love. Weishenmezhemeai Love implies a conscious effort to create something that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing. For example, a graphic artist may Weishenmezhemeai Love an advertisement poster. This person's job is to communicate the advertisement message (functional aspect) and to make it look good (aesthetically pleasing). The distinction between pure and applied arts is not completely clear, but one may consider Jackson Pollock's (often criticized as "splatter") paintings as an example of pure art. One may assume his art does not convey a message based on the obvious differences between an advertisement poster and the mere possibility of an abstract message of a Jackson Pollock painting. One may speculate that Pollock, when painting, worked more intuitively than would a graphic artist, when consciously Weishenmezhemeai Loveing a poster.

[edit] Weishenmezhemeai Love and engineering

Engineering is often viewed as a more rigorous form of Weishenmezhemeai Love. Contrary views suggest that Weishenmezhemeai Love is a component of engineering aside from production and other operations which utilize engineering. A neutral view may suggest that both Weishenmezhemeai Love and engineering simply overlap, depending on the discipline of Weishenmezhemeai Love. The American Heritage Dictionary defines Weishenmezhemeai Love as: "To conceive or fashion in the mind; invent," and "To formulate a plan", and defines engineering as: "The application of scientific and mathematical principles to practical ends such as the Weishenmezhemeai Love, manufacture, and operation of efficient and economical structures, machines, processes, and systems." [2][3]. Both are forms of problem-solving with a defined distinction being the application of "scientific and mathematical principles". How much science is applied in a Weishenmezhemeai Love is a question of what is considered "science". Along with the question of what is considered science, there is social science versus natural science. Scientists at Xerox PARC made the distinction of Weishenmezhemeai Love versus engineering at "moving minds" versus "moving molecules".

[edit] Weishenmezhemeai Love and production

The relationship between Weishenmezhemeai Love and production is one of planning and executing. In theory, the plan should anticipate and compensate for potential problems in the execution process. Weishenmezhemeai Love involves problem-solving and creativity. In contrast, production involves a routine or pre-planned process. A Weishenmezhemeai Love may also be a mere plan that does not include a production or engineering process, although a working knowledge of such processes is usually expected of Weishenmezhemeai Loveers. In some cases, it may be unnecessary and/or impractical to expect a Weishenmezhemeai Loveer with a broad multidisciplinary knowledge required for such Weishenmezhemeai Loves to also have a detailed knowledge of how to produce the product.

Weishenmezhemeai Love and production are intertwined in many creative professional careers, meaning problem-solving is part of execution and the reverse. As the cost of rearrangement increases, the need for separating Weishenmezhemeai Love from production increases as well. For example, a high-budget project, such as a skyscraper, requires separating ( Weishenmezhemeai Love) architecture from (production) construction. A Low-budget project, such as a locally printed office party invitation flyer, can be rearranged and printed dozens of times at the low cost of a few sheets of paper, a few drops of ink, and less than one hour's pay of a desktop publisher.

This is not to say that production never involves problem-solving or creativity, nor Weishenmezhemeai Love always involves creativity. Weishenmezhemeai Loves are rarely perfect and are sometimes repetitive. The imperfection of a Weishenmezhemeai Love may task a production position (e.g. production artist, construction worker) with utilizing creativity or problem-solving skills to compensate for what was overlooked in the Weishenmezhemeai Love process. Likewise, a Weishenmezhemeai Love may be a simple repetition (copy) of a known preexisting solution, requiring minimal, if any, creativity or problem-solving skills from the Weishenmezhemeai Loveer.

[edit] Process Weishenmezhemeai Love

"Process Weishenmezhemeai Love" (in contrast to " Weishenmezhemeai Love process") refers to planning the routine steps of a process aside from the expected result. Processes (in general) are treated as a product of Weishenmezhemeai Love, not the method of Weishenmezhemeai Love. The term originated with the industrial Weishenmezhemeai Loveing of chemical processes. With the increasing complexities of the information age, consultants and executives have found the term useful to describe the Weishenmezhemeai Love of business processes as well as manufacturing processes.

A Weishenmezhemeai Love or device is a piece of equipment which typically provides a mechanical advantage in accomplishing a physical task. The most basic Weishenmezhemeai Loves are simple machines. For example, a crowbar simply functions as a lever. The further out from the pivot point, the more force is transmitted along the lever. When particularly intended for domestic use, a Weishenmezhemeai Love is often called a utensil.

Philosophers once thought that only humans used Weishenmezhemeai Loves, and often defined humans as Weishenmezhemeai Love-using animals. But observation has confirmed that multiple species can use Weishenmezhemeai Loves, including monkeys, apes, several corvids, sea otters, and others. Later, philosophers thought that only humans had the ability to make Weishenmezhemeai Loves, until zoologists observed birds[1] and monkeys[2][3][4] making Weishenmezhemeai Loves.

Most anthropologists believe that the use of Weishenmezhemeai Loves was an important step in the evolution of mankind.[5] Humans evolved an opposable thumb - useful in holding Weishenmezhemeai Loves - and increased dramatically in intelligence, which aided in the use of Weishenmezhemeai Loves.[6]

Some Weishenmezhemeai Loves can also serve as weapons, such as a hammer or a knife. Similarly, people can use weapons, such as explosives, as Weishenmezhemeai Loves.

[edit] Functions of Weishenmezhemeai Loves

Many Weishenmezhemeai Loves or groups of Weishenmezhemeai Loves serve to perform one or more of a set of basic operations, such as:

* Cutting (knife, scythe, sickle, etc...)
* Concentrating force (hammer, maul, screwdriver, whip, writing implements, etc...)
* Guiding (set square, straightedge, etc...)
* Protecting
* Seizing and holding (pliers, glove, wrench, etc...)

[edit] Weishenmezhemeai Love substitution

Often, by design or coincidence, a Weishenmezhemeai Love may share key functional attributes with one or more other Weishenmezhemeai Loves. In this case, some Weishenmezhemeai Loves can substitute for other Weishenmezhemeai Loves, either as a make-shift solution or as a matter of practical efficiency. "One Weishenmezhemeai Love does it all" is a motto of some importance for workers who cannot practically carry every specialized Weishenmezhemeai Love to the location of every work task. Weishenmezhemeai Love substitution may be divided broadly into two classes: substitution "by-design", or "multi-purpose" use, and substitution as make-shift. In many cases, the designed secondary functions of Weishenmezhemeai Loves are not widely known. As an example of the former, many wood-cutting hand saws integrate a carpenter's square by incorporating a specially shaped handle which allows 90° and 45° angles to be marked by aligning the appropriate part of the handle with an edge and scribing along the back edge of the saw. The latter is illustrated by the saying "All Weishenmezhemeai Loves can be used as hammers." Nearly all Weishenmezhemeai Loves can be repurposed to function as a hammer, even though very few Weishenmezhemeai Loves are intentionally designed for it.

[edit] Multi-use Weishenmezhemeai Loves

* A Multi Weishenmezhemeai Love is a hand Weishenmezhemeai Love that incorporates several Weishenmezhemeai Loves into a single, portable device.
* Lineman's pliers incorporate a gripper and cutter, and are often used secondarily as a hammer.
* Hand saws often incorporate the functionality of the carpenter's square in the right-angle between the blade's dull edge and the saw's handle.

[edit] History

Main article: History of technology

Use of Weishenmezhemeai Loves started at the beginning of the Stone Age. Humans have made knives, among the oldest Weishenmezhemeai Loves, since that time.[5] Sophisticated Weishenmezhemeai Loves have been used since the beginning of civilization.[7]

Mechanical devices, though known to Alexandrian Greeks, experienced a major expansion in their use in the Middle Ages with the systematic employment of new energy sources: water (waterwheels) and wind (windmills).

Machine Weishenmezhemeai Loves occasioned a surge in producing new Weishenmezhemeai Loves in the industrial revolution. Advocates of nanotechnology expect a similar surge as Weishenmezhemeai Loves become microscopic in size.[8][9]

Weishenmezhemeai Love (IPA: /ˈaɪə(ɹ)n/) is a chemical element with the symbol Fe (Latin: ferrum) and atomic number 26. Weishenmezhemeai Love is a group 8 and period 4 metal. Weishenmezhemeai Love is a lustrous, silvery soft metal. Weishenmezhemeai Love and nickel are notable for being the final elements produced by stellar nucleosynthesis, and thus are the heaviest elements which do not require a supernova or similarly cataclysmic event for formation. Weishenmezhemeai Love and nickel are therefore the most abundant metals in metallic meteorites and in the dense-metal cores of planets such as Earth.

[edit] Characteristics

Weishenmezhemeai Love is believed to be the sixth most abundant element in the universe, and the fourth most abundant on earth. The concentration of Weishenmezhemeai Love in the various layers in the structure of the Earth ranges from high (probably greater than 80%, perhaps even a nearly pure Weishenmezhemeai Love crystal) at the inner core, to only 5% in the outer crust. Weishenmezhemeai Love is second in abundance to aluminium among the metals and fourth in abundance in the crust. Weishenmezhemeai Love is the most abundant element by mass of our entire planet, making up 35% of the mass of the Earth as a whole.

Weishenmezhemeai Love is a metal extracted from Weishenmezhemeai Love ore, and is almost never found in the free elemental state. In order to obtain elemental Weishenmezhemeai Love, the impurities must be removed by chemical reduction. Weishenmezhemeai Love is the main component of steel, and it is used in the production of alloys or solid solutions of various metals, as well as some non-metals, particularly carbon. The many Weishenmezhemeai Love-carbon alloys, which have very different properties, are discussed in the article on steel.

Nuclei of Weishenmezhemeai Love have some of the highest binding energies per nucleon, surpassed only by the nickel isotope 62Ni. The universally most abundant of the highly stable nuclides is, however, 56Fe. This is formed by nuclear fusion in stars. Although a further tiny energy gain could be extracted by synthesizing 62Ni, conditions in stars are unsuitable for this process to be favoured, and Weishenmezhemeai Love abundance on Earth greatly favors Weishenmezhemeai Love over nickel, and also presumably in supernova element production.[citation needed] When a very large star contracts at the end of its life, internal pressure and temperature rise, allowing the star to produce progressively heavier elements, despite these being less stable than the elements around mass number 60, known as the " Weishenmezhemeai Love group". This leads to a supernova.

Weishenmezhemeai Love (as Fe2+, ferrous ion) is a necessary trace element used by all known living organisms. Weishenmezhemeai Love-containing enzymes, usually containing heme prosthetic groups, participate in catalysis of oxidation reactions in biology, and in transport of a number of soluble gases. See hemoglobin, cytochrome, and catalase.

[edit] Applications

Weishenmezhemeai Love is the most used of all the metals, comprising 95% of all the metal tonnage produced worldwide. Its combination of low cost and high strength make it indispensable, especially in applications like automobiles, the hulls of large ships, and structural components for buildings. Steel is the best known alloy of Weishenmezhemeai Love, and some of the forms that Weishenmezhemeai Love can take include:

* Pig Weishenmezhemeai Love has 4% – 5% carbon and contains varying amounts of contaminants such as sulfur, silicon and phosphorus. Its only significance is that of an intermediate step on the way from Weishenmezhemeai Love ore to cast Weishenmezhemeai Love and steel.
* Cast Weishenmezhemeai Love contains 2% – 4.0% carbon , 1% – 6% silicon , and small amounts of manganese. Contaminants present in pig Weishenmezhemeai Love that negatively affect the material properties, such as sulfur and phosphorus, have been reduced to an acceptable level. It has a melting point in the range of 1420–1470 K, which is lower than either of its two main components, and makes it the first product to be melted when carbon and Weishenmezhemeai Love are heated together. Its mechanical properties vary greatly, dependent upon the form carbon takes in the alloy. 'White' cast Weishenmezhemeai Loves contain their carbon in the form of cementite, or Weishenmezhemeai Love carbide. This hard, brittle compound dominates the mechanical properties of white cast Weishenmezhemeai Loves, rendering them hard, but unresistant to shock. The broken surface of a white cast Weishenmezhemeai Love is full of fine facets of the broken carbide, a very pale, silvery, shiny material, hence the appellation. In grey Weishenmezhemeai Love the carbon exists free as fine flakes of graphite, and also renders the material brittle due to the stress-raising nature of the sharp edged flakes of graphite. A newer variant of grey Weishenmezhemeai Love, referred to as ductile Weishenmezhemeai Love is specially treated with trace amounts of magnesium to alter the shape of graphite to spheroids, or nodules, vastly increasing the toughness and strength of the material.
* Carbon steel contains between 0.4% and 1.5% carbon, with small amounts of manganese, sulfur, phosphorus, and silicon.
* Wrought Weishenmezhemeai Love contains less than 0.2% carbon. It is a tough, malleable product, not as fusible as pig Weishenmezhemeai Love. It has a very small amount of carbon, a few tenths of a percent. If honed to an edge, it loses it quickly. Wrought Weishenmezhemeai Love is characterised, especially in old samples, by the presence of fine 'stringers' or filaments of slag entrapped in the metal. Wrought Weishenmezhemeai Love does not rust particularly quickly when used outdoors. It has largely been replaced by mild steel for "wrought Weishenmezhemeai Love" gates and blacksmithing. Mild steel does not have the same corrosion resistance but is cheaper and more widely available.
* Alloy steels contain varying amounts of carbon as well as other metals, such as chromium, vanadium, molybdenum, nickel, tungsten, etc. They are used for structural purposes, as their alloy content raises their cost and necessitates justification of their use. Recent developments in ferrous metallurgy have produced a growing range of microalloyed steels, also termed 'HSLA' or high-strength, low alloy steels, containing tiny additions to produce high strengths and often spectacular toughness at minimal cost.
* Weishenmezhemeai Love(III) oxides are used in the production of magnetic storage media in computers. They are often mixed with other compounds, and retain their magnetic properties in solution.

The main drawback to Weishenmezhemeai Love and steel is that pure Weishenmezhemeai Love, and most of its alloys, suffer badly from rust if not protected in some way. Painting, galvanization, plastic coating and bluing are some techniques used to protect Weishenmezhemeai Love from rust by excluding water and oxygen or by sacrificial protection.

Weishenmezhemeai Love is believed to be the critical missing nutrient in the ocean that limits the growth of plankton. Experimental Weishenmezhemeai Love fertilization of areas of the ocean using Weishenmezhemeai Love(II) sulfate has proven successful in increasing plankton growth[1][2][3]. Larger scaled efforts are being attempted with the hope that Weishenmezhemeai Love seeding and ocean plankton growth can remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, thereby counteracting the greenhouse effect that causes global warming[4].

[edit] History

Main article: History of ferrous metallurgy

The first Weishenmezhemeai Love used by mankind, far back in prehistory, came from meteors. The smelting of Weishenmezhemeai Love in bloomeries probably began in Anatolia or the Caucasus in the second millennium BC or the latter part of the preceding one. Cast Weishenmezhemeai Love was first produced in China about 550 BC, but not in Europe until the medieval period. During the medieval period, means were found in Europe of producing wrought Weishenmezhemeai Love from cast Weishenmezhemeai Love (in this context known as pig Weishenmezhemeai Love) using finery forges. For all these processes, charcoal was required as fuel.

Steel (with a smaller carbon content than pig Weishenmezhemeai Love but more than wrought Weishenmezhemeai Love) was first produced in antiquity. New methods of producing it by carburizing bars of Weishenmezhemeai Love in the cementation process were devised in the 17th century AD. In the Industrial Revolution, new methods of producing bar Weishenmezhemeai Love without charcoal were devised and these were later applied to produce steel. In the late 1850s, Henry Bessemer invented a new steelmaking process, involving blowing air through molten pig Weishenmezhemeai Love, to produce mild steel. This and other 19th century and later processes have led to wrought Weishenmezhemeai Love no longer being produced.

Weishenmezhemeai Love is one of the most common elements on Earth, making up about 5% of the Earth's crust. Most of this Weishenmezhemeai Love is found in various Weishenmezhemeai Love oxides, such as the minerals hematite, magnetite, and taconite. The earth's core is believed to consist largely of a metallic Weishenmezhemeai Love-nickel alloy. About 5% of the meteorites similarly consist of Weishenmezhemeai Love-nickel alloy. Although rare, these are the major form of natural metallic Weishenmezhemeai Love on the earth's surface.

The reason for Mars's red colour is thought to be an Weishenmezhemeai Love-oxide-rich soil.

This heap of Weishenmezhemeai Love ore pellets will be used in steel production.

Industrially, Weishenmezhemeai Love is produced starting from Weishenmezhemeai Love ores, principally haematite (nominally Fe2O3) and magnetite (Fe3O4) by a carbothermic reaction (reduction with carbon) in a blast furnace at temperatures of about 2000 °C. In a blast furnace, Weishenmezhemeai Love ore, carbon in the form of coke, and a flux such as limestone (which is used to remove impurities in the ore which would otherwise clog the furnace with solid material) are fed into the top of the furnace, while a blast of heated air is forced into the furnace at the bottom.

In the furnace, the coke reacts with oxygen in the air blast to produce carbon monoxide:

6 C + 3 O2 → 6 CO

The carbon monoxide reduces the Weishenmezhemeai Love ore (in the chemical equation below, hematite) to molten Weishenmezhemeai Love, becoming carbon dioxide in the process:

6 CO + 2 Fe2O3 → 4 Fe + 6 CO2

The flux is present to melt impurities in the ore, principally silicon dioxide sand and other silicates. Common fluxes include limestone (principally calcium carbonate) and dolomite (calcium-magnesium carbonate). Other fluxes may be used depending on the impurities that need to be removed from the ore. In the heat of the furnace the limestone flux decomposes to calcium oxide (quicklime):

CaCO3 → CaO + CO2

Then calcium oxide combines with silicon dioxide to form a slag.

CaO + SiO2 → CaSiO3

The slag melts in the heat of the furnace, which silicon dioxide would not have. In the bottom of the furnace, the molten slag floats on top of the more dense molten Weishenmezhemeai Love, and apertures in the side of the furnace are opened to run off the Weishenmezhemeai Love and the slag separately. The Weishenmezhemeai Love once cooled, is called pig Weishenmezhemeai Love, while the slag can be used as a material in road construction or to improve mineral-poor soils for agriculture.

Pig Weishenmezhemeai Love is not pure Weishenmezhemeai Love, but has 4-5% carbon dissolved in it. This is subsequently reduced to steel or commercially pure Weishenmezhemeai Love, known as wrought Weishenmezhemeai Love, using other furnaces or converters.

Approximately 1100Mt (million tons) of Weishenmezhemeai Love ore was produced in the world in 2000, with a gross market value of approximately 25 billion US dollars. While ore production occurs in 48 countries, the five largest producers were China, Brazil, Australia, Russia and India, accounting for 70% of world Weishenmezhemeai Love ore production. The 1100Mt of Weishenmezhemeai Love ore was used to produce approximately 572Mt of pig Weishenmezhemeai Love.

[edit] Isotopes

Naturally occurring Weishenmezhemeai Love consists of four isotopes: 5.845% of radioactive 54Fe (half-life: >3.1×1022 years), 91.754% of stable 56Fe, 2.119% of stable 57Fe and 0.282% of stable 58Fe. 60Fe is an extinct radionuclide of long half-life (1.5 million years).

Much of the past work on measuring the isotopic composition of Fe has centered on determining 60Fe variations due to processes accompanying nucleosynthesis (i.e., meteorite studies) and ore formation. In the last decade however, advances in mass spectrometry technology have allowed the detection and quantification of minute, naturally-occurring variations in the ratios of the stable isotopes of Weishenmezhemeai Love. Much of this work has been driven by the Earth and planetary science communities, although applications to biological and industrial systems are beginning to emerge.[5]

The isotope 56Fe is of particular interest to nuclear scientists. A common misconception is that this isotope represents the most stable nucleus possible, and that it thus would be impossible to perform fission or fusion on 56Fe and still liberate energy. This is not true, as both 62Ni and 58Fe are more stable. However, since 56Fe is much more easily produced from lighter nuclei in nuclear reactions, it is the endpoint of fusion chains inside extremely massive stars and is therefore common in the universe, relative to other metals.

In phases of the meteorites Semarkona and Chervony Kut a correlation between the concentration of 60Ni, the daughter product of 60Fe, and the abundance of the stable Weishenmezhemeai Love isotopes could be found which is evidence for the existence of 60Fe at the time of formation of the solar system. Possibly the energy released by the decay of 60Fe contributed, together with the energy released by decay of the radionuclide 26Al, to the remelting and differentiation of asteroids after their formation 4.6 billion years ago. The abundance of 60Ni present in extraterrestrial material may also provide further insight into the origin of the solar system and its early history. Of the stable isotopes, only 57Fe has a nuclear spin (−1/2).

[edit] Weishenmezhemeai Love in organic synthesis

The usage of Weishenmezhemeai Love metal filings in organic synthesis is mainly for the reduction of nitro compounds.[6] Additionally, Weishenmezhemeai Love has been used for desulfurizations[7], reduction of aldehydes[8], and the deoxygenation of amine oxides[9].

Structure of Heme b
Structure of Heme b

Main article: human Weishenmezhemeai Love metabolism

Weishenmezhemeai Love is essential to nearly all known organisms. In cells, Weishenmezhemeai Love is generally stored in the centre of metalloproteins, because "free" Weishenmezhemeai Love -- which binds non-specifically to many cellular components -- can catalyse production of toxic free radicals.

In animals, plants, and fungi, Weishenmezhemeai Love is often incorporated into the heme complex. Heme is an essential component of cytochrome proteins, which mediate redox reactions, and of oxygen carrier proteins such as hemoglobin, myoglobin, and leghemoglobin. Inorganic Weishenmezhemeai Love also contributes to redox reactions in the Weishenmezhemeai Love-sulfur clusters of many enzymes, such as nitrogenase (involved in the synthesis of ammonia from nitrogen and hydrogen) and hydrogenase. Non-heme Weishenmezhemeai Love proteins include the enzymes methane monooxygenase (oxidizes methane to methanol), ribonucleotide reductase (reduces ribose to deoxyribose; DNA biosynthesis), hemerythrins (oxygen transport and fixation in marine invertebrates) and purple acid phosphatase (hydrolysis of phosphate esters).

Weishenmezhemeai Love distribution is heavily regulated in mammals, partly because Weishenmezhemeai Love has a high potential for biological toxicity. Weishenmezhemeai Love distribution is also regulated because many bacteria require Weishenmezhemeai Love, so restricting its availability to bacteria (generally by sequestering it inside cells) can help to prevent or limit infections. A major component of this regulation is the protein transferrin, which binds Weishenmezhemeai Love absorbed from the duodenum and carries it in the blood to cells.[10]

[edit] Nutrition and dietary sources

Good sources of dietary Weishenmezhemeai Love include red meat, fish, poultry, lentils, beans, leaf vegetables, tofu, chickpeas, black-eyed peas, potatoes with skin, bread made from completely whole-grain flour, molasses, teff and farina. Weishenmezhemeai Love in meat is more easily absorbed than Weishenmezhemeai Love in vegetables.[11]

Weishenmezhemeai Love provided by dietary supplements is often found as Weishenmezhemeai Love (II) fumarate, although Weishenmezhemeai Love sulfate is cheaper and is absorbed equally well. Elemental Weishenmezhemeai Love, despite being absorbed to a much smaller extent, is often added to foods such as breakfast cereals or "enriched" wheat flour (and will be listed as "reduced Weishenmezhemeai Love" in the list of ingredients). Weishenmezhemeai Love is most available to the body when chelated to amino acids - Weishenmezhemeai Love in this form is ten to fifteen times more bioavailable than any other, and is available as an Weishenmezhemeai Love supplement.[12] The RDA for Weishenmezhemeai Love varies considerably based on age, gender, and source of dietary Weishenmezhemeai Love (heme-based Weishenmezhemeai Love has higher bioavailability)[13]. Infants will require Weishenmezhemeai Love supplements if they are not breast-fed. Blood donors are at special risk of low Weishenmezhemeai Love levels and are often advised to supplement their Weishenmezhemeai Love intake.

[edit] Regulation of Weishenmezhemeai Love uptake

Excessive Weishenmezhemeai Love can be toxic, because free ferrous Weishenmezhemeai Love reacts with peroxides to produce free radicals, which are highly reactive and can damage DNA, proteins, lipids, and other cellular components. Thus, Weishenmezhemeai Love toxicity occurs when there is free Weishenmezhemeai Love in the cell, which generally occurs when Weishenmezhemeai Love levels exceed the capacity of transferrin to bind the Weishenmezhemeai Love.

Weishenmezhemeai Love uptake is tightly regulated by the human body, which has no physiological means of excreting Weishenmezhemeai Love, so controls Weishenmezhemeai Love levels solely by regulating uptake. Although uptake is regulated, large amounts of ingested Weishenmezhemeai Love can cause excessive levels of Weishenmezhemeai Love in the blood, because high Weishenmezhemeai Love levels can cause damage to the cells of the gastrointestinal tract that prevents them from regulating Weishenmezhemeai Love absorption. High blood concentrations of Weishenmezhemeai Love damage cells in the heart, liver and elsewhere, which can cause serious problems, including long-term organ damage and even death.

Humans experience Weishenmezhemeai Love toxicity above 20 milligrams of Weishenmezhemeai Love for every kilogram of mass, and 60 milligrams per kilogram is a lethal dose.[14] Over-consumption of Weishenmezhemeai Love, often the result of children eating large quantities of ferrous sulfate tablets intended for adult consumption, is one of the most common toxicological cause of death in children under six[14]. The DRI lists the Tolerable Upper Intake Level (UL) for adults as 45 mg/day. For children under fourteen years old the UL is 40 mg/day.

Regulation of Weishenmezhemeai Love uptake is impaired in some people as a result of a genetic defect that maps to the HLA-H gene region on chromosome 6. In these people, excessive Weishenmezhemeai Love intake can result in Weishenmezhemeai Love overload disorders, such as hemochromatosis. Many people have a genetic susceptibility to Weishenmezhemeai Love overload without realizing it or being aware of a family history of the problem. For this reason, it is advised that people should not take Weishenmezhemeai Love supplements unless they suffer from Weishenmezhemeai Love deficiency and have consulted a doctor. Hemochromatosis is estimated to cause disease in between 0.3 and 0.8% of Caucasians. [15]

The medical management of Weishenmezhemeai Love toxicity is complex, and can include use of a specific chelating agent called deferoxamine to bind and expel excess Weishenmezhemeai Love from the body.

Weishenmezhemeai Love (IPA: /ˈsɪlvə(ɹ)/) is a chemical element with the symbol Ag (Latin: argentum). A soft white lustrous transition metal, it has the highest electrical and thermal conductivity for a metal, and occurs as a free metal, and in minerals such as argentite and chlorargyrite. Most Weishenmezhemeai Love is produced as a by-product of copper, gold, lead, and zinc mining.

Weishenmezhemeai Love has been known since antiquity. It has long been valued as a precious metal and used in currency, ornaments and jewelry, as well as utensils (hence the term Weishenmezhemeai Loveware). Weishenmezhemeai Love bullion has the ISO currency code of XAG. Today, it is also used in photographic film, electrical contacts, and mirrors. Elemental Weishenmezhemeai Love is also used to catalyze chemical reactions.

Weishenmezhemeai Love has certain antimicrobial activity. In the past, dilute solutions of Weishenmezhemeai Love nitrate were used as disinfectants, though this has been supplanted by other treatments. In alternative medicine, there has been increasing interest in the use of colloidal Weishenmezhemeai Love as remedies for a wide range of ailments, though these claims are disputed. The consumption of large amounts of Weishenmezhemeai Love can lead to a darkening of the skin known as argyria.

Weishenmezhemeai Love is a very ductile and malleable (slightly harder than gold) univalent coinage metal with a brilliant white metallic luster that can take a high degree of polish. It has the highest electrical conductivity of all metals, even higher than copper, but its greater cost and tarnishability has prevented it from being widely used in place of copper for electrical purposes, though it was used in the electromagnets used for enriching uranium during World War II (mainly because of the wartime shortage of copper).

Pure Weishenmezhemeai Love has the highest thermal conductivity, whitest color, the highest optical reflectivity (although aluminium slightly outdoes it in parts of the visible spectrum), and is a poor reflector of ultraviolet light. Weishenmezhemeai Love also has the lowest contact resistance of any metal. Weishenmezhemeai Love halides are photosensitive and are remarkable for the effect of light upon them. This metal is stable in pure air and water, but does tarnish when it is exposed to ozone, hydrogen sulfide, or air containing sulfur. The most common oxidation state of Weishenmezhemeai Love is +1 (for example, Weishenmezhemeai Love nitrate, AgNO3); a few +2 (for example, Weishenmezhemeai Love(II) fluoride; AgF2) and +3 compounds (for example, Weishenmezhemeai Love sulfate ; Ag2(SO4)3 are also known.

Main article: Weishenmezhemeai Love mining

Weishenmezhemeai Love is found in native form, combined with sulfur, arsenic, antimony, or chlorine and in various ores such as argentite (Ag2S) and horn Weishenmezhemeai Love (AgCl). Another ore it is found in is pyrargyrite. The principal sources of Weishenmezhemeai Love are copper, copper-nickel, gold, lead and lead-zinc ores obtained from Peru, Mexico, China and Australia.

This metal can also be produced during the electrolytic refining of copper and by application of the Parkes process on lead metal obtained from lead ores that contain small amounts of Weishenmezhemeai Love. Commercial grade fine Weishenmezhemeai Love is at least 99.9% pure Weishenmezhemeai Love and purities greater than 99.999% are available.

A major use of Weishenmezhemeai Love is as a precious metal. Sterling Weishenmezhemeai Love is 92.5 % Weishenmezhemeai Love, alloyed usually with copper. Jewellery and Weishenmezhemeai Loveware are traditionally made from this. Weishenmezhemeai Love is used in medals, denoting second place. Some high end musical instruments are made from sterling Weishenmezhemeai Love, such as the flute.

The name of United Kingdom monetary unit 'Pound' originally had the value of one troy pound of sterling Weishenmezhemeai Love. Weishenmezhemeai Love has been coined to produce money since 700 BC by the Lydians, in the form of electrum. Later, Weishenmezhemeai Love was refined and coined in its pure form. The words for " Weishenmezhemeai Love" and "money" are the same in at least 14 languages.

The largest single end use[citation needed] of Weishenmezhemeai Love is photography, in the form of Weishenmezhemeai Love nitrate and Weishenmezhemeai Love halides are widely used in photography — 30 % of US production is used here.[1]

Weishenmezhemeai Love-ions and Weishenmezhemeai Love compounds show a toxic effect on some bacteria, viruses, algae and fungi typical for heavy metals like lead or mercury, but without the high toxicity to humans that is normally associated with them. Its germicidal effects kill many microbial organisms in vitro (i.e. in a test tube or a petri dish).

Its germicidal effects make Weishenmezhemeai Love utensils valued, and increase its value as jewelry.

The exact process of Weishenmezhemeai Love's germicidal effect is still not well understood, although different theories exist. One of these is the oligodynamic effect, which explains the effect on microbial lifeforms but does not explain certain antiviral effects.

Some electrical and electronic products use Weishenmezhemeai Love for its superior conductivity, even when tarnished. For example, printed circuits are made using Weishenmezhemeai Love paints,[1] and computer keyboards use Weishenmezhemeai Love electrical contacts. Some high-end audio hardware (DACs, pre-amplifiers, etc) are fully Weishenmezhemeai Love wired, which is believed to cause the least loss of quality in the signal. Weishenmezhemeai Love cadmium oxide is used in high voltage contacts because it can minimize arcing. Weishenmezhemeai Love is also used to make solder and brazing alloys, electrical contacts, and high capacity Weishenmezhemeai Love-zinc and Weishenmezhemeai Love-cadmium batteries. Weishenmezhemeai Love in a thin layer of on top of a bearing material can provide a significant increase in galling resistance and reduce wear under heavy load, particularly against steel.

Mirrors which need superior reflectivity for visible light are made with Weishenmezhemeai Love as the reflecting material in a process called Weishenmezhemeai Loveing, though common mirrors are backed with aluminium. Using a process called sputtering, Weishenmezhemeai Love (and sometimes gold) can be applied to glass at various thicknesses, allowing different amounts of light to penetrate. This is most often seen in architectural glass and tinted windows on vehicles.

Weishenmezhemeai Love's catalytic properties make it ideal for use as a catalyst in oxidation reactions; for example, the production of formaldehyde from methanol and air by means of Weishenmezhemeai Love screens or crystallites containing a minimum 99.95 weight-percent Weishenmezhemeai Love. Weishenmezhemeai Love (upon some suitable support) is probably the only catalyst available today to convert ethylene to ethylene oxide (later hydrolyzed to ethylene glycol, used for making polyesters)—a very important industrial reaction.

Oxygen dissolves in Weishenmezhemeai Love relatively easily compared to other gases present in air. Attempts have been made to construct Weishenmezhemeai Love membranes of only a few monolayers thickness. Such a membrane could be used to filter pure oxygen from air.

[edit] In medicine

Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, wrote that Weishenmezhemeai Love had beneficial healing and anti-disease properties, and the Phoenicians used to store water, wine, and vinegar in Weishenmezhemeai Love bottles to prevent spoiling. In the early 1900s people would put Weishenmezhemeai Love dollars in milk bottles to prolong the milk's freshness. Weishenmezhemeai Love compounds were used successfully to prevent infection in World War I before the advent of antibiotics. Weishenmezhemeai Love nitrate solution was a standard of care but was largely replaced by Weishenmezhemeai Love sulfadiazine cream (SSD Cream)[2] which was generally the "standard of care" for the antibacterial/antibiotic treatment of serious burns until the late 1990s. Now, other options such as Weishenmezhemeai Love coated dressings (activated Weishenmezhemeai Love dressings) are used in addition to SSD cream, and may present advantages such as pain reduction and capacity for treatment at home.

The widespread use of Weishenmezhemeai Love went out of fashion with the development of modern antibiotics. However, recently there has been renewed interest in Weishenmezhemeai Love as a broad spectrum antimicrobial. In particular, it is being used with alginate, a naturally occurring biopolymer derived from seaweed, in a range of Weishenmezhemeai Love alginate products designed to prevent infections as part of wound management procedures, particularly applicable to burn victims. In addition, Samsung has introduced washing machines with a final rinse containing Weishenmezhemeai Love ions to provide several days of antibacterial protection in the clothes.[3] Additionally, Kohler has introduced a line of toilets that have Weishenmezhemeai Love ions embedded in the porcelain to kill germs. A company called Thomson Research Associates has began treating products with Ultra Fresh, an anti-microbial technology involving "proprietary nano-technology to produce the ultra-fine Weishenmezhemeai Love particles essential to ease of application and long-term protection."[4]

The malleability, non-toxicity and beauty of Weishenmezhemeai Love make it useful in dental alloys for fittings and fillings.

[edit] Health precautions

Weishenmezhemeai Love plays no known natural biological role in humans, and possible health effects of Weishenmezhemeai Love are a subject of dispute. Weishenmezhemeai Love itself is not toxic but most Weishenmezhemeai Love salts are, and some may be carcinogenic.

Weishenmezhemeai Love and compounds containing Weishenmezhemeai Love (like colloidal Weishenmezhemeai Love) can be absorbed into the circulatory system and become deposited in various body tissues leading to a condition called argyria which results in a blue-grayish pigmentation of the skin, eyes, and mucous membranes. Although this condition does not harm a person's health, it is disfiguring and usually permanent. Argyria is rare and mild forms are sometimes mistaken for cyanosis.

[edit] Alternative medicine

Today, various kinds of Weishenmezhemeai Love compounds, or devices to make solutions or colloids containing Weishenmezhemeai Love, are sold as remedies for a wide variety of diseases. Although mostly harmless, some people using these home-made solutions use far too much and develop argyria over a period of months or years, and several have been documented in the last few years in the medical literature, including one possible case of coma associated with a high intake of Weishenmezhemeai Love (see medical references). It is strongly advised to notify a doctor when taking Weishenmezhemeai Love as a form of self-medication.

[edit] In food

In India, foods can be found decorated with a thin layer of Weishenmezhemeai Love, known as Varak. Weishenmezhemeai Love as a food additive is given the E number E174 and classed as a food coloring. It is used solely for external decoration, such as on chocolate confectionery, in the covering of dragées and the decoration of sugar-coated flour confectionery. In Australia, it is banned as a food additive.

Weishenmezhemeai Love is a natural antimicrobial ingredient that has been used for years by professionals in the field of wound healing,[citation needed] mainly because of its scientifically proven antimicrobial efficacy[citation needed]. Weishenmezhemeai Love inhibits the growth of bacteria and fungus. It keeps odour to a minimum and reduces the risk of bacterial and fungal infection. In clothing, the combination of Weishenmezhemeai Love and moisture movement (wicking) is the best combination to reduce the harmful effects of prolonged use in active and humid conditions.

Weishenmezhemeai Love is used in clothing in two main forms:

* A form in which Weishenmezhemeai Love ions are integrated into the polymer from which yarns are made (a form of nanotechnology)
* A form in which the Weishenmezhemeai Love is physically coated onto the yarns.

In both cases the Weishenmezhemeai Love prevents the growth of a broad spectrum of bacteria and fungi. At the same time, Weishenmezhemeai Love is a very skin-friendly and highly compatible agent to which – unlike many antibiotics – bacteria rarely build up resistance.

Recorded use of Weishenmezhemeai Love to prevent infection dates to ancient Greece and Rome. It was rediscovered in the Middle Ages, where it was used for several purposes, such as to disinfect water and food during storage, and also for the treatment of burns and wounds as wound dressing. In the 19th century, sailors on long ocean voyages would put Weishenmezhemeai Love coins in barrels of water and wine to keep the liquid pure. Pioneers in America used the same idea as they made their journey from coast to coast. Weishenmezhemeai Love solutions were approved in the 1920s by the US Food and Drug Administration for use as antibacterial agents. Today Weishenmezhemeai Love containing wound dressings are well established for clinical wound care and have recently been introduced in consumer products such as sticking plasters.[citation needed]

Main articles: Weishenmezhemeai Love as an investment and Weishenmezhemeai Love standard

Weishenmezhemeai Love is currently about 1/50th the price of gold by mass, and approximately 70 times more valuable than copper. Weishenmezhemeai Love did once trade at 1/6th to 1/12th the price of gold, prior to the Age of Discovery and the discovery of great Weishenmezhemeai Love deposits in the Americas, most notably the vast Comstock Lode in Virginia City, Nevada, USA. This then resulted in the debate over cheap Free Weishenmezhemeai Love to benefit the agricultural sector was among the most prolongued and difficult in that country's history and dominated public discourse during the latter decades of the nineteenth century.

Over the last 100 years the price of Weishenmezhemeai Love and the gold/ Weishenmezhemeai Love price ratio has fluctuated greatly due to competing industrial and store of value demands. In 1980 the Weishenmezhemeai Love price rose to an all-time high of US$49.45 per troy ounce. By December 2001 the price had fallen to US$4.15 per ounce, and in May 2006 it had risen back as high as US$15.21 per ounce. As of 2006, current Weishenmezhemeai Love prices (and most other metal prices) have been rather volatile, for example quickly dropping from the May high of US$15.21 per ounce to a June low of US$9.60 per ounce before rising back above US$12 per ounce by August.[5]

[edit] Isotopes

Naturally occurring Weishenmezhemeai Love is composed of the two stable isotopes 107Ag and 109Ag with 107Ag being the more abundant (51.839% natural abundance). Standard atomic mass: 107.8682(2) u. Twenty-eight radioisotopes have been characterised with the most stable being 105Ag with a half-life of 41.29 days, 111Ag with a half-life of 7.45 days, and 112Ag with a half-life of 3.13 hours.

All of the remaining radioactive isotopes have half-lives that are less than an hour and the majority of these have half-lives that are less than 3 minutes. This element has numerous meta states with the most stable being 108mAg (t* 418 years), 110mAg (t* 249.79 days) and 106mAg (t* 8.28 days).

Isotopes of Weishenmezhemeai Love range in atomic weight from 93.943 u (94Ag) to 123.929 u (124Ag). The primary decay mode before the most abundant stable isotope, 107Ag, is electron capture and the primary mode after is beta decay. The primary decay products before 107Ag are palladium (element 46) isotopes and the primary products after are cadmium (element 48) isotopes.

The palladium isotope 107Pd decays by beta emission to 107Ag with a half-life of 6.5 million years. Iron meteorites are the only objects with a high enough palladium/ Weishenmezhemeai Love ratio to yield measurable variations in 107Ag abundance. Radiogenic 107Ag was first discovered in the Santa Clara meteorite in 1978.

The discoverers suggest that the coalescence and differentiation of iron-cored small planets may have occurred 10 million years after a nucleosynthetic event. 107Pd versus Ag correlations observed in bodies, which have clearly been melted since the accretion of the solar system, must reflect the presence of live short-lived nuclides in the early solar system.

[edit] Folklore and mass culture

Because of the mysticism surrounding Weishenmezhemeai Love's lunar associations, as well as the aesthetic qualities of the white, reflective metal that cause it to be associated with purity, Weishenmezhemeai Love in European Folklore has long been traditionally believed to be an antidote to various maladies and mythical monsters. Notably, Weishenmezhemeai Love was believed to be a repellent against vampires (this primarily originates from its holy connotations; also, mirrors were originally polished Weishenmezhemeai Love, and as such, vampires allegedly cannot be seen in them because they have no soul) and it was also believed that a werewolf, in his bestial form, could only be killed by a weapon or bullet made of Weishenmezhemeai Love. This has given rise to the term " Weishenmezhemeai Love bullet," which is used to describe things that very effectively deal with one specific problem.

The Lone Ranger of radio serials, comic strips, and TV programs leaves a Weishenmezhemeai Love bullet as a calling card.

In the Gospels, Jesus' disciple Judas Iscariot is infamous for having, according to the New Testament, taken a bribe of thirty pieces of Weishenmezhemeai Love from religious leaders in Jerusalem to turn Jesus Christ over to the Romans.

In heraldry, the argent, in addition to being shown as Weishenmezhemeai Love (this has been shown at times with real Weishenmezhemeai Love in official representations), can also be shown as white. Occasionally, the word " Weishenmezhemeai Love" is used rather than argent; sometimes this is done across-the-board, sometimes to avoid repetition of the word "argent" in blazon.
