Chapter IV covers women's efforts to assert themselves in sexually segregated activities at the congregational level, both at home and abroad. Accommodation was generally smooth in benevolent and educational areas, both of which fit a traditional definition of femininity, but corporate worship and church government introduced the contradictory claims of service and submission. For women to expand their religious sphere while maintaining fidelity to a legalistic interpretation of Christianity entails a fundamental struggle between assertion and subordination that continues to trouble evangelicals.

Missions capitalized on a woman's need both to nurture and to exercise personal power. The Texas Baptist women who volunteered for missionary service had an opportunity to respond to the demands of their beliefs in settings with less institutional restriction and more immediate and explicit demands than were provided at home. Two Texas women—Anne Luther Bagby, who went to Brazil in 1880, and Annie Jenkins Sallee, who served in China from 1906 to 1942—provide interesting case studies of women's behavioral and attitudinal changes accompanying the practice of their Baptist faith in different cultures.

Chapter V moves from the explicitly religious realm to other aspects of Baptist women's lives and focuses on the way Christian goals were translated into character models, educational pursuits, marriage, motherhood, and the exercise of civic responsibility. It was in these areas that the informal, physical quality of frontier life characteristic of Texas in the nineteenth century provided a balancing effect to the passive, protected ideal of womanhood that flourished in the East and South. In a frontier setting, the sexes shared many tasks and aspirations, and that experience paved the way for women's seeking a broader sphere of activity and influence. An interesting facet of this development is the pride and self-definition many women manifested while operating within the ultimate limits of patriarchal authority.

Notes on sources

The most valuable primary source for my research were Baptist state newspapers, particularly the Baptist Standard , owned and published by individuals prominent in denominational circles until 1914, when it was purchased by the Baptist General Convention of Texas. Appearing weekly from 1892, the newspaper covered women's events and organizations and published women's writing on a special interest page. I utilized, however, the entire paper, gaining other insights into the attitude toward women's role through obituaries, editorials, reprints of sermons and speeches, and advertisements. The paper also gave an interesting and comprehensive reflection of Texas life, including coverage of selected political events and personalities, reflections of its various editors, news from all Baptist institutions, reports from pastors and laymen, query columns and letters from readers, short stories, even advertisements for stock in the San Jacinto Oil Company. Baptist Standard (Dallas), March 20, 1902, p. 2. Prior to 1892, Texas Baptists spoke through several lesser newspapers: the Texas Baptist Herald , the Texas Baptist , and, between 1886-88, the Texas Baptist and Herald , a combination of the two.

Questions & Answers

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
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.

the Beer law works very well for dilute solutions but fails for very high concentrations. why?
