(5) showed the same trend as that for Ch.(a,b) and carotenoids, significantly increased when irrigated with magnetized Sea Water compared to irrigation with nonmagnetic Sea Water in all of the Sea Water concentration levels, and were significantly decreased with increasing salt concentration compared to the control fresh water irrigation (LSD = 0.7466 and 0.6906) and the highest total pigments content was found under irrigation with ordinary water (8.55 and 10.85mg/g) for nonmagnetized and magnetized water respectively, then 10% sea water concentration (6.85 and 9.07 mg/g), followed by 20% (4.66 and 6.87 mg/g) and 30% (3.08 and 5.13 mg/g), then the concentrations of 40% (1.80 and 3.60 mg/g) and 50% (0.86 and 1.48 mg/g) with significant differences between these treatments.
Both magnetic metallic crystalline and nonmagnetic cryptocrystalline glass MS were separated from sediments excavated from what appears to be the bottom of a late Pleistocene or early Holocene ice dam lake situated along the banks of the Colorado River about two and one-half miles west of the Colorado-Utah state line.
Many studies have focused on simple superlattices with magnetic and nonmagnetic layers designed to probe the interlayer magnetic coupling for materials with long-range (e.g., rare-earths and transition metals) and short-range (e.g., magnetic semiconductors and transition-metal oxides) exchange interactions (44).
Instead of regular metal wires and hooks, the new bra incorporates resinous wires and nonmagnetic metal hooks that do not trigger metal detector alarms and will help assure female flight attendants and frequent flyers of comfortable and safe flights, helping them avoid embarrassment, the company said.
A unique, nonmagnetic spool and housing assembly eliminates the typical contamination problem created by ferrous particles being magnetically attracted to the valve as is normally experienced by conventional valves.

A team led by researchers at Tohoku University added cobalt to titanium dioxide, a nonmagnetic semiconductor, to create a new material that, like a chameleon, can transform from a paramagnet (a nonmagnetic material) to a ferromagnet (a magnetic material) at room temperature.
The use of ceramic rails, blocks, and in most cases, ceramic bails, contributes to nonmagnetic characteristics and increases the range of applications, according to the manufacturer.
What's more, the glassy steels--even though they are iron alloys--exhibit little tendency to corrode, even in seawater, and are nonmagnetic at room temperature.
