The parent element of our personalities can be both nurturing (e.
Thus, each tetrahedron within the polyhedron/hexahedron (with coordinates (x, y, z)) is mapped to the parent element geometry in the natural coordinate system (with coordinates (r, s, t)) according to the equation below:
This is because the abundances of these daughters in different mineral phases in the meteorite are correlated with the abundances of a stable isotope of the parent element.
Any modification brought to the parent element will be reflected on the child elements.
The root element follows the header and serves as the parent element for all other schema elements.
Figure 4 shows the parent element with the vertices also denoted by concentric circles.
Mortars carry a poleless litter: This allows up to 25 rounds of 60mm ammunition to be laid within the litter, strap the litter closed, and two men within the mortar section (with some extra effort) can move the rounds that had been dropped but not fired back to the parent element.
You just don't see the same growth when the parent element isn't there.
Observing this distinct decay pattern -- as element 110 spawned daughter and granddaughter isotopes 108 to 102 -- permits researchers to confirm the presence of the parent element 110, says Armbruster.
