"Pierre, if you let her do that again, you'll go straight to behavior modification," he warned her assigned bodyguard.
"Boss, you can send her to behavior modification training," Pierre suggested.
The day kiri grows tired of him, he's going to my behavior modification training, Dusty assured him.
It should be added that the modern theory of vortex-atoms (Lord Kelvin's) to explain the constitution of matter has but slight analogy with Cartesian doctrine, and finds a parellel, if anywhere, in a modification of that doctrine by Malebranche.
A modification of the ordinary pressure-plate has recently been designed.
A very interesting modification was also proposed in the same letter, viz.
Davy on the decomposition of the solutions of salts by the voltaic current were turned to account in the water voltameter telegraph of Sdmmering and the modification of it proposed by Schweigger, and in a similar method proposed by Coxe, in which a solution of salts was substituted for water.
By a modification of the bridge method, applied with excellent results by Dr Muirhead to submarine work, condensers are substituted for a and b, one being also placed in the circuit between P and Q.
In a subsequent modification introduced in 1875 an electromotor was applied to drive the printing mechanism.
With characteristic foresight, Visconti Venosta promoted an exchange of views between Italy and France in regard to the Tripolitan hinterland, which the Anglo-French convention of 1899 had placed within the French sphere of influencea modification of the status quo ante considered highly detrimental to Italian aspirations in Tripoli.
Balfour put forward the view that the polyp was the more primitive type, and that the medusa is a special modification of the polyp for reproductive purposes, the result of division of labour in a polypcolony, whereby special reproductive persons become detached and acquire organs of locomotion for spreading the species.
The Hertwigs when they discovered the endoderm-lamella showed on morphological grounds that polyp and medusa are independent types, each produced by modification in different directions of a more primitive type represented in development by the actinulastage.
Cuvier on anatomical, and Von Baer on embryological grounds, made the further step of proving that, even in this limited sense, animals cannot be arranged in a single series, but that there are several distinct plans of organization to be observed among them, no one of which, in its highest and most complicated modification, leads to any of the others.
It is suggested that even in the absence of modification produced by any possible Darwinian or Lamarckian factors, that even in a neutral environment, divergent evolution of some kind would have occurred.
The wall of the tube is very thin and delicate, and does not seem to be composed of cellulose or any modification of it.
Genetic modification of plants and animals has been going on for a long time in the form of selective breeding.
Another method of genetic modification, called mutagenesis, dates to the early part of the twentieth century.
If the first order of genetic modification is deliberately keeping desirable mutations, then this is the second order: creating conditions for such genetic modifications to occur more rapidly.
Today, genetic modification efforts are much more directed.
In any case, there are other ways to use genetic modification to get energy.
Environmentalists should be the first people onboard the genetic modification bandwagon.
