bar,

offshore: see beachbeach,
a gently sloping zone where deposits of unconsolidated sediments are subject to wave action at the shore of an ocean or lake. Most of the sediment making up a beach is supplied by rivers or by the erosion of highlands adjacent to the coast.

bar

A unit of pressure equal to 105 pascals. The bar and the millibar (1/1000 bars, symbol: mbar or mb) are often used for planetary atmospheric pressures; the Earth's atmospheric pressure is about 1000 millibars.

Bar

A long, thin strip of material, especially iron, used for a variety of building purposes.

Bar

 

a town and the administrative center of Bar Raion, Vinnitsa Oblast, UkrSSR, located on the Rov River (Southern Bug basin) 6 km from the Bar railroad station. Population, 14,000 (1968). Bar has a machine-building plant, sugar refinery, distillery, cannery, garment factory, and furniture factory. The town received its present name in the 16th century.


Bar

 

a town and port in Yugoslavia, located in Montenegro on the shore of the Adriatic Sea. Population, 4,000 (1961). The town of Bar consists of two parts—Novi Bar (the port) and Stari Bar (5 km from the shore). It is the final stop on the Belgrade-Bar railroad line, which has been under construction since 1970. Bar is a seaside health resort and a center for horticulture. A bauxite deposit is located nearby. Bar stands on the site of the ancient Roman settlement of Antebarium.


Bar

 

in strength of materials, a structural member whose length greatly exceeds its other two dimensions. Straight or curved bars may be interconnected to form systems.

What does it mean when you dream about a bar?

The male member. Power. Rigidity. What we do with a bar in a dream can indicate how we are expressing our power. Also note “bar” in the sense of blocking the way, or a barrier, as in the expression “color bar.”


What does it mean when you dream about a bar?

Bars can have a range of meanings, depending on our personal associations. They could indicate good times and congeniality, or escapism and loneliness.

Any of the various submerged or partially submerged ridges, banks, or mounds of sand, gravel, or other unconsolidated sediment built up by waves or currents within stream channels, at estuary mouths, and along coasts.
Any band of hard rock, for example, a vein or dike, that extends across a lode.
(mechanics)
A unit of pressure equal to 105 pascals, or 105 newtons per square meter, or 106 dynes per square centimeter.
(metallurgy)
An elongated piece of metal of simple uniform cross-section dimensions, usually rectangular, circular, or hexagonal, produced by forging or hot rolling. Also known as barstock.

(dreams)
When I was in college, I read in a theology book that a monk on a mountain top and a man with his bottle of wine are really trying to get to the same place. That “place” translates to peace and a genuine feeling of being connected to the rest of the universe. Dreaming about being in bars and drinking may symbolize a need that you have for some type of a meaningful transformation. On the other hand, this dream may be a form of wish fulfillment, and you are escaping into a pleasurable environment where daily cares and concerns are meaningless. If you rarely allow yourself to relax and socialize, this dream may be compensatory in nature.

Our genetic association study was designed to test whether variation in the ADRB2, ADRB3 and ADRA2A genes can modulate changes in selected body mass, body composition and metabolic variables following 12 weeks of supervised aerobic exercise training in women.
Particularly, the role of the lipolytic receptors genes, ADRB2, with its Gly16Arg and Glu27Gln polymorphisms, alone or in haplotype combination, in weight gain, obesity and changes in body composition have been investigated by many scientists.
Recombinant cell studies and primary culture of human airway smooth muscle cells studies show that the Gly16 allele enhances agonist-promoted ADRb2 down regulation while the Glu27 variant appear to play a protective role against it.
found that none of ADRb2 polymorphism reproducibly associated with risk of asthma among different ethnic populations.13 A total of five meta-analyses have been performed to date evaluating the association of ADRb2 phenotypes with asthma.
The RT-PCR and qPCR analyses showed that the horse ADRB2 gene is expressed in various tissues such as skeletal muscle, kidney, thyroid, lung, appendix, colon, spinal cord, and heart (Figure 2A).
We also genotyped these six SNPs in the Chinese Han population and found significant differences in the distribution of MS4A2 C-109Tand ADRB2 R16G between the asthma and control groups, suggesting that these two SNPs may be related to asthma in Chinese Han children.
It seems reasonable to incorporate 2 bulges for haplotyping of a 3-loci block, as shown with the ADRB2 20/ 46/79 probe, because only 4 haplotypes have been described at this locus.
To examine the effect of Ang II treatment or the ADRB2 agonist on the cell wound-healing potential, EPCs were seeded in 6-well plates at a density of 1 x [10.sup.6] cells/well.
For this purpose, we evaluated previously reported candidate genes that have a role in oxidative stress {GSTM1, glutathione 5-transferase T1 [GSTT1, GeneID 2952 (Entrez Gene 2008)], GSTP1, and NQO1}, inflammatory response (TNFA), innate immunity (TLR4), and airway reactivity (ADRB2).
The importance of developing rapid ADRB2 screening protocols that differentiate codon 16/27 diplotypes is emphasized by the number of studies linking these genotypes to clinical and pharmacologic responses.
