itting by the pool at a Pasadena hotel, Paul was aboutto do something impulsive, even by his standards.The Southern California evening breeze wasstarting to pick up. Anyone within earshot of Paul andthe woman sitting across from him at the poolside tablewould have thought they’d known each other for years, al-though the pair had met only two days prior. They talkedabout everything from world travel to the 1970s antiwarmovement to Socratic philosophy; their conversation hada casual, easy ﬂow to it. Watching the two of them—Nadi...
partial charges. When a hydrogen atom bearing a partial positive charge bridges two atoms bearing a partial negative charge, a hydrogen bond is created. A van der Waals’ bond (B) is formed between apolar molecular groups that have come into close proximity. Spontaneous transient distortion of electron clouds (momentary faint dipole, !!) may induce an opposite dipole in the neighboring molecule. The van der Waals’ bond, therefore, is a form of electrostatic attraction, albeit of very low strength (inversely proportional to the seventh power of the distance).
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration asked the Board on Science,
Technology, and Economic Policy (STEP) to hold a one-day symposium to
review the NASA Ames Research Center’s plans to develop a science and technology
Limited construction prospects are envisaged for all Precincts, except for the Southern end of the
city. This Precinct off ers 75% of the current new supply and also the highest number of proposed
apartments identifi ed.
Why is an oversupply of the Southern Precinct not anticipated? Firstly, fi nanciers will not provide
construction funding unless signifi cant presale levels are met. Secondly, 64% of the current
supply levels have already been absorbed which suggests strong underlying demand for new
product within close proximity to the CBD and other amenities.
