Maclaurin used Newton's theory to show that a smooth sphere covered by a sufficiently deep ocean under the tidal force of a single deforming body is a prolate spheroid (essentially a three-dimensional oval) with major axis directed toward the deforming body. Maclaurin was the first to write about the Earth's rotational effects on motion. Euler realized that the tidal force's horizontal component (more than the vertical) drives the tide. In 1744 Jean le Rond d'Alembert studied tidal equations for the atmosphere which did not include rotation.
Certain side effects are preparation specific. Gels, creams, and other topical agents can cause skin irritation and secondary exposure to women and children who come into contact with the medication via direct transfer. Some untoward consequences of use of topicals is the wonderful odor (or “fragrance”, to steal Big Pharma’s term) that is associated with it. Failure rates are much, much higher for this type of medication owing to the inability of 30-40% of men to even absorb enough to improve their testosterone levels.
[…] I had the opportunity to meet with a small cohort of new teachers and a veteran, henceforth Ms. A (not her real name), who was implementing AFL during my first year in district. She shared her experiences in preparing students for this shift in assessing and grading, as well as how she had to modify her teaching. One of the biggest takeaways from my year with Ms. A had to do with assessments, particularly how to “grade” them. Gone were the days of tabulating points. In came written feedback. I’m not talking about “Nice job!” or “There is an error here.” Descriptive feedback is an extension of scaffolding. Its intent is to guide a student and provide support to help them realize their error, ultimately to learn from and correct it. John Hattie reports that, with an effect size of , feedback is among the top-10 things that strongly influences student achievement. […]
