Opacity (optics)
OPACITY is the measure of impenetrability to electromagnetic or other kinds of radiation , especially visible light . In radiative transfer , it describes the absorption and scattering of radiation in a medium , such as a plasma , dielectric , shielding material , glass, etc. An OPAQUE object is neither transparent (allowing all light to pass through) nor translucent (allowing some light to pass through). When light strikes an interface between two substances, in general some may be reflected, some absorbed, some scattered, and the rest transmitted (also see refraction ). Reflection can be diffuse , for example light reflecting off a white wall, or specular , for example light reflecting off a mirror. An opaque substance transmits no light, and therefore reflects, scatters, or absorbs all of it. Both mirrors and carbon black are opaque. Opacity depends on the frequency of the light being considered

Ice Cream
ICE CREAM (derived from earlier ICED CREAM or CREAM ICE ) is a sweetened frozen food typically eaten as a snack or dessert . It is usually made from dairy products , such as milk and cream, and often combined with fruits or other ingredients and flavors . It is typically sweetened with sugar or sugar substitutes . Typically, flavourings and colourings are added in addition to stabilizers. The mixture is stirred to incorporate air spaces and cooled below the freezing point of water to prevent detectable ice crystals from forming. The result is a smooth, semi-solid foam that is solid at very low temperatures (< 2 °C or 35 °F). It becomes more malleable as its temperature increases. The meaning of the phrase "ice cream" varies from one country to another. Phrases such as "frozen custard ", "frozen yogurt ", "sorbet ", "gelato " and others are used to distinguish different varieties and styles

Skeletonization * v * t * e Decomposing fallen nurse log in a forest DECOMPOSITION is the process by which organic substances are broken down into simpler matter. The process is a part of nutrient cycle and is essential for recycling the finite matter that occupies physical space in the biosphere . Bodies of living organisms begin to decompose shortly after death . Animals, such as worms, also help decompose the organic materials. Organisms that do this are known as decomposers . Although no two organisms decompose in the same way, they all undergo the same sequential stages of decomposition. The science which studies decomposition is generally referred to as taphonomy from the Greek word taphos, meaning tomb

Gastropoda
that have a coiled shell that is large enough for the animal to retract completely into. When the word "snail" is used in this most general sense, it includes not just land snails but also numerous species of sea snails and freshwater snails . Gastropods that naturally lack a shell , or have only an internal shell, are mostly called slugs , and land snails that have only a very small shell (that they cannot retract into) are often called semi-slugs . Snails have considerable human relevance, including as food items, as pests, as vectors of disease, and their shells are used as decorative objects and are incorporated into jewelry

Other energy sources include horses , engine or water-driven rope or wire winch , gravity , pneumatics , batteries , and gas turbines . Train
Train
tracks usually consist of two running rails , sometimes supplemented by additional rails such as electric conducting rails and rack rails , with a limited number of monorails and maglev guideways in the mix. The word 'train' comes from the Old French

Condescendences
In law, an ALLEGATION (also called ADDUCTION) is a claim of a fact by a party in a pleading , charge, or defense. Until they can be proved , allegations remain merely assertions. There are also marital allegations: marriage bonds and allegations exist for couples who applied to marry by licence . They do not exist for couples who married by banns . The marriage allegation was the document in which the couple alleged (or frequently just the groom alleged on behalf of both of them) that there were no impediments to the marriage. Generally, in a civil complaint , a plaintiff alleges facts sufficient to establish all the elements of the claim and thus states a cause of action . The plaintiff must then carry the burden of proof and the burden of persuasion in order to succeed in the lawsuit . A defendant can allege affirmative defenses in its answer to the complaint

Physician
A PHYSICIAN, MEDICAL PRACTITIONER, MEDICAL DOCTOR, or simply DOCTOR is a professional who practises medicine , which is concerned with promoting, maintaining, or restoring health through the study, diagnosis , and treatment of disease , injury , and other physical and mental impairments. Physicians may focus their practice on certain disease categories, types of patients and methods of treatment—known as specialities —or they may assume responsibility for the provision of continuing and comprehensive medical care to individuals, families, and communities—known as general practice . Medical practice properly requires both a detailed knowledge of the academic disciplines (such as anatomy and physiology ) underlying diseases and their treatment—the science of medicine—and also a decent competence in its applied practice—the art or craft of medicine. Both the role of the physician and the meaning of the word itself vary around the world
