The believer or respecters of his alleged retraction may prefer it titled in that vague lukewarm way. Led by the highly acclaimed scholar Jaime de Veyra they in fact emasculated it by antedating to a day or more before the last long night before his death. And by inventing Trinidad (or Narcisa, confusedly) as its risk-taking smuggler from the maximum-security prison on the early evening before execution morning. They gloss over its specific defiant constancy to earliest noble dreams, clamors, honor, beliefs, and who killed him. Never do they mention its most likely corrected draft in the shoes. You cannot use “Adios” as proof against the December 29-30, 1896 retraction, De Pedro joins them in saying towards the end of his book. It’s just valedictory to nation. Even the most published grandniece of the hero, Asuncion Lopez-Rizal Bantug, subscribed to that general retractionist “insult” of a demolition job on the historic poem. With like-minded establishment historians they scandalously enshrined that eviscerated version at the premier Rizal Museum-Shrine at Fort Santiago. Nor have Filipinos noticed nor cared to know about their effectively national poem’s depths and shameless misrepresentation above. And its finishing and planning during the long last night for secret assured delivery with the leftovers--later on execution day. Its corrected draft most likely hid in his shoes—for insurance. Hardly anyone I’ve known or met knows or accepts these facts. As I review these lines I wonder how the great U.S. Congressman Henry A. Cooper, main author of the Philippine [Autonomy]Bill of 1902, would react to all this about his favorite Asian hero and his poem. He is on record boldly telling an awed assembled U.S. House of Representatives about Rizal and his death poem, which he recited. The dying heroic poet finished writing it “on the night before his death….on the awful [long] night as he sat alone amidst the silence….in the height of mind and power of character….Where, on what soil, under what sky, did Tyranny ever claim a nobler victim?”

Right at the start of his researched thick book De Pedro assures his readers that Rizal was “never a pagan but a Catholic…” Towards the end, on page 307, still a Catholic, though a diminished one: “Rizal believed, but not in the fullness of Christian revelation”. De Pedro did find the hero transformed into a rationalist freethinker at age 22, but, to recall, it turns out, only an incomplete freethinker, half-baked at most. Underneath it all his core-identity remained Catholic and so considered himself a Catholic! That is downright disinformation under influence of the still reigning retraction-respecting paradigm. Combined religious, nationalistic and commercial needs have, alas, led to presentation of Rizal to his Catholic country as its Catholic nationalist hero killed by Spain for violent separatism. You can see that in the two Zaides’ commercial bestseller, their page 185 stating that “Rizal refused to give up his Catholic faith….He remained loyal to the Catholic religion.”

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.

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.
