    “Mental fight means thinking against the current, not with it. It is our business to puncture gas bags and discover the seeds of truth.”


Chambers's Twentieth Century Dictionary
A word invented by the Dutch chemist J. B. Van Helmont (1577-1644)—the form suggested by Gr. chaos.

Olsen's attorney claims Oakland police have tested the hat Olsen was wearing when he was hit and have confirmed through an email that it was a bean bag, not a tear gas canister as originally thought.
Supplies needed are cleaning supplies, shovels, garbage bags, face masks, gas cans, and wipes, said co-owner Carolyn Brophy.
Federal officials say they have arrested a man at Los Angeles International Airport after a smoke grenade, knives, gas mask, leg irons, body bags and a variety of weapons were discovered in luggage .

It pretty much reaches my personal gas-tank storage limit in a single snazzy, tapered, aerodynamic bag design, while offering a good deal of sport-touring/commuting versatility at the same time.

In science:

The entire inner target space will be covered by a plastic bag flushed with dry nitrogen to prevent the radioactive radon gas from diffusing into the target region.
A CsI(Tl) Scintillating Crystal Detector for the Studies of Low Energy Neutrino Interactions
The horizontal lines indicate the results for averaged initial conditions using the hadron gas EoS (blue full line) and the bag model EoS (black dotted line) while the symbols (full circles for HG-EoS and open squares for BM-EoS) depict the results for the event-by-event calculation.
Eccentricity fluctuations in an integrated hybrid approach: Influence on elliptic flow
Results for the hadron gas EoS with averaged/fluctuating initial conditions are depicted as blue full/broken line while the calculations with the bag model EoS with averaged/fluctuating initial conditions are represented as black dashed/dotted line.
Eccentricity fluctuations in an integrated hybrid approach: Influence on elliptic flow
For the bag model EoS (’BM’) the elliptic flow is expected to be smaller than for the hadron gas EoS (’HG’) since the speed of sound during the expansion is smaller.
Eccentricity fluctuations in an integrated hybrid approach: Influence on elliptic flow
For the hadron gas equation of state the different setups lead to similar results again, while for the bag model the averaged initial conditions lead to reduced elliptic flow, especially at higher pt .
Eccentricity fluctuations in an integrated hybrid approach: Influence on elliptic flow
For this purpose, we approximate the confined phase by an ideal gas of nucleons and pions augmented by a density-dependent interaction energy, while the deconfined phase is taken as an ideal gas of quarks and gluons with their interactions described by a bag constant.
Spinodal phase separation in relativistic nuclear collisions
In calculations, we use an EoS with ideal QGP in the high-temperature phase and a hadron resonance gas with a mean field below the transition. A first-order transition is implemented by introducing a bag constant B into the QGP phase and connecting the two phases with a Maxwell construction.
Hydrodynamic Models for Heavy Ion Collisions
Thus we work (at first) in the canonical framework and, for a given T, we obtain the free energy density fT (ρ) in the phase coexistence region by performing a suitable spline between two idealized systems (either a gas of pions and interacting nucleons or a bag of gluons and quarks) held at that temperature.
Spinodal amplification of density fluctuations in fluid-dynamical simulations of relativistic nuclear collisions
As the strange quark mass ms is different from zero, the behavior of the pressure above Tc is not the usual T 4 law: in addition to the bag constant (135) which is taken into account through the decomposition (126), the massive free gas part has the temperature expansion (134).
The 3-flavor A-scaled Nambu-Jona-Lasinio model
Rxx and Ryy are shown for a bag model EoS and for a simple resonance gas EoS.
Last Call for RHIC Predictions
Within the MIT bag model, however, with the con fined phase simply being modelled by a noninteracting pion gas, the decon finement transition decreases with the magnetic field, in qualitative agreement with the lattice results .
