... gravity ( acceleration of free fall , g , standard acceleration of gravity ) acceleration Metric 1901 Established at the 3rd CGPM as 9.806 65 m⋅s -2 (32.174 049∼ ft⋅s -2 ). Le Système International d'Unités (Sèvres, France: Bureau International de Poids et Mesures, 1985) Originally conceived as the gravity at mean sea level at latitude 45°N, the term ‘standard gravity’ has become a label for a conventional value. From 1907 the ‘accepted international base’ value for gravity measurements was 9.812 74 m⋅ s -2 , as recorded at Potsdam,...

...standard acceleration due to gravity ( standard gravity ) ( g , g 0 , g n ) The value 980.665 cm/s 2 (9.806 65 m/s 2 ) for g was adopted in the International Service of Weights and Measures at the 3rd General Conference on Weights and Measures (CGPM) in 1901. This is the accepted CODATA value. It is about 0.09% higher than the average value of g at sea level. https://physics.nist.gov/cuu/Constants/ Values of frequently used...

...almost tragic sound to Paul's words, as he laments about an apostleship whose strength has not been recognized in weakness. In vv. 1–4 Paul makes use of a marriage metaphor to communicate the seriousness of the threat which has penetrated the community from the outside. The gravity of the situation as Paul perceived it would not have been missed by an audience of the time, for he appeals to the core values of honour and shame. Paul places himself in the role of father ( cf. 12:14 ) of a virgin (the community) who is giving her in marriage to her one true...

...food shortages, and a prolonged cold spell (the ‘little Ice Age’)—meant that it was decades before the prewar level was reached again. Although Vienna and Munich publishers effectively had a monopoly in the Catholic domains of the Habsburgs and the Wittelsbachs, the centre of gravity of the book trade shifted from the south to the centre and north. Even though the Lutheran Reformation had spent its force by the mid-16 th century, the Protestant book trade maintained its ascendancy over German intellectual life. The Frankfurt fair, however, lost its dominant...

...to ‘the entrance of the north temple gate’ ( v. 14 ), a location not otherwise known (for an attempt at reconstructing the temple layout assumed in 8:1–18 see Zimmlerli 1979: 237–43), but clearly another step closer to the temple itself. The sanctity of the location and the gravity of the abomination progress simultaneously, so that the worst offences take place in the holiest areas. The third abomination consists of women weeping for Tammuz ( ABD , ‘Tammuz’), the Sumerian god whose descent into the underworld and subsequent return to life represented the...

...Essentially, it consisted of matters regarded by Paul as morally indifferent ( 14:1 : ‘opinions’, see 1 Cor 9 ). ‘The kingdom of God is not food and drink’ ( 14:17 ), but it is ‘walking in love’ ( 14:15 ). Then as now, conflict arose because of discrepant calculations of moral gravity. Inevitably, it is easier for the ‘strong’ (the less observant) to be tolerant of the ‘weak’ (the more observant) than the reverse. At what point does moral allowance turn the corner to moral abdication? Were Jewish Christians intolerant who continued to require sabbath...

...where the blade sank, asks to know the exact spot, and uses a kind of analogical magic before letting the disciple fish the piece of metal out of the water. The apparently banal episode is symbolically touching: God and his prophet can, in exceptional cases, defy the laws of gravity if God's people require them to do so. ( 6:8–23 ) Elisha Captures Arameans and Subsequently Ensures their Release The scene moves back from the smaller-scale group of disciples to the larger political world, where Aramean troops can move across Israelite territory unhindered.

...seeks wisdom by himself, sitting alone in the solitudes mentioned earlier, never passing through the outer door of the house or even looking at it from afar. But every seventh day they come together as for a general assembly and sit in order according to their age with becoming gravity, keeping their hands inside their robes, the right hand between the breast and the chin and the left stretched out along their sides. (31) Then the eldest of them, and the most versed in their doctrines, comes forward and with steadfast look and steady voice delivers a...

...signal the eschatological battle by raising an eschatological sign. In Israel a ram's horn was blown to rally the tribes for war. This act was accompanied by the raising of a standard upon a hill. The standard consisted of a wooden pole upon whose top crosspiece was an insignia, most often an animal. In Isaiah the old custom is put to prophetic use: the Lord himself will raise a standard and call for war ( Isa 13:2–4 ), or the root of Jesse will ‘stand as a signal to the peoples’ ( Isa 11:10 ). The old tradition that the cross will accompany Jesus at his...
