Her own mother lived the latter years of her life in the horrible suspicion that electricity was dripping invisibly all over the house.
Notes on Recent Researches in Electricity and Magnetism , published in 1883, had won him enough acclaim at the age of twenty-seven that he was named director of the [Cavendish] laboratory the next year.j. j. thomson
There is no such thing as an achieved liberty; like Electricity, there can be no substantial storage and it must be generated as it is enjoyed, or the lights go out.robert h. jackson
There is currently no food, water or Electricity. We can only imagine how much worse the situation will be for families living in towns and remote villages.
Notwithstanding my experiments with Electricity the thunderbolt continues to fall under our noses and beards; and as for the tyrant, there are a million of us still engaged at snatching away his sceptre.
"When we're making music together, it's like five men making love-in a very platonic sense. It's very erotic, because your spirits are intermingling, you're becoming one. It's also why it can get so heated. You're tapping into this Electricity that's very primal."brandon boyd
The golden toad was the first documented victim of global warming. We had killed it with our profligate use of coal-fired Electricity and our oversize cars just as surely as if we had flattened its forest with bulldozers. It was as if, having experienced it, we did not recognize what happiness was.tim flannery
Our understanding of the four basic concepts of Physics -- space, time, matter and force -- has undergone radical change in the course of work on unification, starting with Maxwell's unification of Electricity with magnetism, all the way to present day string theory. What started as four independent concepts, with space and time postulated and the possible forms of matter and force arbitrarily chosen, now appear as different aspects of a rich and novel dynamically determined structure.peter freund
I, who had been in favour of nuclear energy for generating Electricity … I suddenly realised that anybody who has a nuclear reactor can extract the plutonium from the reactor and make nuclear weapons, so that a country which has a nuclear reactor can, at any moment that it wants to, become a nuclear weapons power. And I, right from the beginning, have been terribly worried by the existence of nuclear weapons and very much against their use.mark oliphant
A live concert to me is exciting because of all the Electricity that is generated in the crowd and on stage. It's my favorite part of the business — live concerts.elvis presley
Talent is like Electricity. We don't understand Electricity. We use it.maya angelou
Privatization is a neoliberal and imperialist plan. Health can’t be privatized because it is a fundamental human right, nor can education, water, Electricity and other public services. They can’t be surrendered to private capital that denies the people from their rights.hugo chávez
Prudence and justice tell me that in Electricity and steam there is more love for man than in chastity and abstinence from meat.Anton Chekhov
One thing most of us agree on is that the universe exists (people who deny that usually follow some trade other than science), so if some theoretical particle interaction would lead ultimately to the nonexistence of the universe, then you can save a lot of Electricity by not trying to demonstrate it.joe haldeman
All the rest of the world uses the word "Electricity." They've borrowed the word from English. But we Chinese have our own word for it!
Idealists , workers of thought, unite to show how inspiration and genius walk in step with the progress of the machine , of aircraft, of industry, of trade, of the sciences, of Electricity.filippo tommaso marinetti
If, in the very intense electric field in the neighbourhood of the cathode, the molecules of the gas are dissociated and are split up, not into the ordinary chemical atoms, but into these primordial atoms, which we shall for brevity call corpuscles; and if these corpuscles are charged with Electricity and projected from the cathode by the electric field, they would behave exactly like the cathode rays.j. j. thomson
The laws of thermodynamics may be regarded as particular cases of more general laws, applicable to all such states of matter as constitute Energy , or the capacity to perform work, which more general laws form the basis of the science of energetics, a science comprehending, as special branches, the theories of motion, heat, light , Electricity , and all other physical phenomena.william john macquorn rankine
The reason why all of us naturally began to live in France is because France has scientific methods, machines and Electricity, but does not really believe that these things have anything to do with the real business of living.
We cannot predict the new forces, powers, and discoveries that will be disclosed to us when we reach the other planets and set up new laboratories in space. They are as much beyond our vision today as fire or Electricity would be beyond the imagination of a fish.
Every percentage point increase in homegrown renewable energy makes us that much more energy secure. The progress in Electricity is encouraging, but growth is not yet strong enough in renewable heat and transport to meet the government's objectives
We shall see that the mathematical treatment of the subject [of Electricity] has been greatly developed by writers who express themselves in terms of the 'Two Fluids' theory. Their results, however, have been deduced entirely from data which can be proved by experiment, and which must therefore be true, whether we adopt the theory of two fluids or not. The experimental verification of the mathematical results therefore is no evidence for or against the peculiar doctrines of this theory.
Mr. Gladstone, then Chancellor of the Exchequer, had interrupted him in a description of his work on Electricity to put the impatient inquiry: 'But, after all, what use is it?' Like a flash of lightning came the response: 'Why, sir, there is every probability that you will soon be able to tax it!'michael faraday
In the the past thirty years, what is now known as the science of industrial management has grown from a scattered, almost formless beginning into a well-defined, rapidly developing structure. Today this science bids fair to outstrip in public importance and economic usefulness any one of the great sciences that have been applied to serve mankind. For the science of industrial management is the great super-science that takes mechanics, chemistry, physics, Electricity, psychology; and Burbank-like, grafts them all into one great, productive, ever-bearing plant.
Gents, this is an educational project. You are about to witness the damaging effect Electricity has on Wood.
