Actually, women in Texas had never ceased to be physically active. Rural women helped with crops and livestock, both of which demanded outdoor exertion beyond their household tasks. Well into the twentieth century, even those who lived in towns often kept a garden, a cow, and some chickens on their "city lot." Annie Jenkins Sallee's family lived in town (Waco) and were middle-class, but after taking her absent mother's place at home, she wrote,

"I kept house and I verily believe I never did so much work in all my life. Housecleaning, cooking, feeding the "Billy," feeding the rabbits, gathering eggs and general errand boy (rather girl)."
Annie Jenkins Sallee, Diary, entry dated July 21, 1897. Jenkins-Sallee Papers, Texas Collection, Baylor University, Waco, Texas. During childhood farm girls did most of the same chores boys did--chopping and picking cotton and milking cows--and girls routinely participated in active outdoor sports like swimming, horseback riding, climbing trees, and riding a "wheel" when it came in vogue.

Personal interviews with Mrs. Hollis Manly in Abilene, Texas, February 26, 1975; Mrs. A. R. Holten in Abilene, Texas, February 27, 1975; Hallie Jenkins Singleton in Waco, Texas, February 4, 1976. All these women grew up around the turn of the century in Granbury, Huckaby, and Waco, Texas, respectively. Also see BS , September 30, 1897, and Annie Jenkins Sallee, Diary, entry dated July 10, 1897.

"Playing football was the limit because boys put hands on me and knocked me down,"
explained Hallie Jenkins Singleton of Waco, but she did so many other things boys did she wanted her mother to let her wear pants
"the worst way."

Contrary to myth and fashion, Texas Baptist women never ceased to be competent and intelligent as well as physically active. Annie Sallee praised her sister Josephine Truett for being

so calm and capable. . .everyone felt comfortable just to have her there.
Sallee, Diary, February 27, 1928, at her mother's last illness. In the 1890s Elli Moore was singled out in a complimentary sketch because
she was a great manager, especially in times of emergency. . .persistent in carrying out her plans and wishes and. . .very independent. . .generally preferring to wait on herself.

BS , July 11, 1895, p. 7.

My mother wanted us to be independent,
claimed Georgia Smith, born in 1890 to Rochelle Robinson, the daughter of Fannie Breedlove Davis, first president of Texas Baptist women's mission organization. Personal interview with Georgia Robinson Smith in Austin, Texas, May 19, 1980. >

Quite the opposite of upholding contrived sweetness or silence, Baptists described insight and direct speech as virtues. "Aunt Sallie" Malone, considered nearly a saint by Baptist Standard editor James B. Cranfill, was nonetheless

"frank and outspoken, sometimes even blunt. . .If she discovered that a man is a fraud and a hypocrite, he is sure to soon find out that she knows him for what he is worth."

BS , August 28, 1902, p. 6.

"Miss Bell" Grover was another Baptist woman with
"a faculty of keen discrimination,"
who shot
"[verbal] arrows that hit the mark, bringing down the game."

BS , May 28, 1903, p. 7.

Aiming at the same commonsensical model for his daughter, Annie Sallee's father advised:
"Curb your 'sentimentality'--hold a severe check on it."
W. H. Jenkins to Annie Jenkins, March 20, 1899. Jenkins-Sallee Papers, Texas Collection, Baylor University, Waco, Texas.

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?
is it a question of log
I rally confuse this number And equations too I need exactly help

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
Prasenjit Reply
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?
