A brief note on space and other resource constraints such as editing, proof-reading and footnoting limitations may be noted before getting deeper into this disproof. Unable to find any help from academia or outside, or support and enough interest for this Rizal-vindication project, I’ve resorted to condensing and keeping detailed notes from the large literature to a minimum. For all that, I’ve gone ahead to describe what should now be emerging before us: a continuously and cumulatively growing mountain of conclusive anti-retraction evidence, independently of the handwriting issue. Only the most conclusive evidence I’ve found and contributed to, particularly from my own two slim books published in 1996 and 1998, are included here. They, as well as the cited works of Dr. Manolo Vaňo and Reynold Fajardo, more than amply disprove the alleged retraction: independently of the unrealistic defensive ploy and demands that three or five of the world’s best handwriting experts be commissioned to pronounce on the matter. This irrelevancy represents elusive vain hopes of obtaining a conclusive consensus on authenticity. A defensive dishonest ploy too I will argue. We’ll discuss these some more later.

The 1935-discovered document’s sheer existence, upheld by some local handwriting examiners as authentic, points to its complete authenticity, its champions like Dr. Javier de Pedro claim. But only its publicized text existed at around Rizal’s death, and for decades. No matter how pressured the Church was to publicly show the alleged original supposedly done in the death cell, it couldn’t. The earliest anti-retractionists cited that as proof the cited original of the death cell never existed at all! And some local handwriting examiners found the 1935 document to be a forgery. Many of its contents and mechanics, the anti-retractionists claimed, are self-falsifying. We’ll take a closer look at this later. Too many of its earliest announcements involved telltale blunders of coordination and different versions screaming “Fraud!” Take the suspiciously anonymous announcement of what became canonical weeks later in Spain, rather than in its Philippine colony, its announcer identified decades later to have been the former Jesuit Superior Pastells himself, about which more later.. Then there is the clearly fundamentalist theocratic voice of the document’s designing maker resounding throughout the document and leaps out at the attentive reader. No way, Jose!, if one must shout so, and as further explained and documented as we get deeper into this disproof.

I belabor here in resolving the handwriting sub-issue because early on, just after the Second World War, the highly nationalistic ‘retractionist’ Catholic, Leon Maria Guerrero, himself a lawyer, in his work which went on to become an all-time bestseller and promoted by Church and State through their schools and other instrumentalities, invented the popular legal myth that courts of law would find for authenticity of the retraction document. This cannot be, obviously, because of conflicting local findings on its penmanship’s authenticity and the strict requirements of the legal verification process. Handwriting analysis of relatively short documents remains an imperfect science pretty much like polygraph lie-detector tests. Soon the view developed from Guerrero’s baseless boast that consensus among the world’s best sterling handwriting analysts abroad should be obtained. Meanwhile, the Church’s document should continue to receive respect at the very least, in the absence of such a conclusive consensus finding on the authenticity of the 1935 document. That is like saying the Code of Kalantiaw should continue receiving respect in the absence of a consensus finding of forgery by the world’s best analysts of penmanship, paper&ink. Or, the famous alleged Letter of Jesus to Abgarus should be shown respect in the absence of a consensus finding of forgery by the world’s best handwriting analysts? In these examples, as with numerous others from history, a thorough internal and external analysis of the document in question has been held to be sufficient. But enough for now on that issue for resumption later.

can someone help me with some logarithmic and exponential equations.
Jeffrey Reply
sure. what is your question?
okay, so you have 6 raised to the power of 2. what is that part of your answer
I don't understand what the A with approx sign and the boxed x mean
it think it's written 20/(X-6)^2 so it's 20 divided by X-6 squared
I'm not sure why it wrote it the other way
I got X =-6
ok. so take the square root of both sides, now you have plus or minus the square root of 20= x-6
oops. ignore that.
so you not have an equal sign anywhere in the original equation?

or infinite solutions?
The answer is neither. The function, 2 = 0 cannot exist. Hence, the function is undefined.

good afternoon madam
what is system testing
what is the application of nanotechnology?
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
I'm interested in Nanotube
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world

At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.
