Strong hands, brave hearts, high souls are ours—
Proud consciousness of quenchless powers—
A Past whose memory makes us thrill—
Futures uncharactered, to fill
With heroisms—if we will.

In science:

On the other hand, the time to reach those nodes with a high degree is lower using NRW than LRW since LRW covers more uniformly the entire network, despite the degree of the nodes.
Long-Range Navigation on Complex Networks using L\'evy Random Walks
On the other hand, there are radii R when BR (o) just exits a can C of type 1, in which case a significant proportion of the volume of BR (o) is contained in C with high probability.
A stationary random graph of no growth rate
On the other hand, we learned that the graph evolution process does satisfy the conjecture with reasonably high probability; hence algorithms whose efficiency rests on the assumption of a unique complex component will not often be inefficient.

For starburst activity this would not be surprising, since galaxies with relatively compact nuclear rings with a high star formation rate might well be classi fied as starburst, whereas on the other hand a st arburst classi fied as nuclear may in fact be circumnuclear, but not resolved with imaging.
