The various movements of which woman was the head may be divided into two periods, and each period into two parts.

At least 2,000 followers of the banned Falun Gong spiritual movement have been detained in China in the last week, the official holiday period for the Lunar New Year, a Hong Kong human rights group said.
It is concerned with minor movements, with the cults and manias of that period.
Bird migration, the periodic movement of birds from one geographic location to another, has stimulated the imagination of mankind for thousands of years.
From 1965 to 1969 Miss Syrkin was on the executive body of the World Zionist Movement and during that period was honorary president of the Labor Zionist Movement in the United States.
Jackson Hole, Wyo.-The Aesthetic movement, often known as the Victorian avant-garde, was a period during the 19th century that visually and ideologically redefined the role of beauty in art.
A reliable packer designed and intended to be left in place for a long period of time that seals and holds pressure or resists movement from both directions.

In science:

In essence we create and use directed graphs of movement. Fundamentally two mobility choices exist for the experimentation of the simulator: a) generational mobility and b) real path mobility. In generational mobility we generate the paths used by nodes over a period of time.

Certain bacteria show the following movement pattern: periods of strait runs alternate with periods of random rotations which leads to reorientation of the cells.
Asymptotic expansion of semi-Markov random evolutions
Using some simplistic models, we demonstrate that comparing different period-length MYEs results in spurious conclusions about trend movements. A simple method utilizing weighted averages is presented that reduces the bias inherent in comparing trends of different MYEs.
Incompatibility of trends in multi-year estimates from the American Community Survey
This shows that the stationary processes that belong to the Hilbert space of almost periodic functions in the sense of Besicovitch, do not possess the second-order ergodicity as ܴ௫ ሺ߬ሻ ് ݖ௜ ሺ߬ሻ. The exact component of the input signal generates a forced movement control channels.

They move along periodically structured molecular tracks and show stochastic movements on an one-dimensional template.

Waiting a period of time 2t1 after the run inside coil D, we would find the photon entering the coil C and spend another t2 travelling in it, such that the gravitational mass of the C-portion will be increased and as a result, the system will undergo a movement towards the side of the C coil (see fig.3).

Meanwhile, the zigzag oscillation at late time (t > 400) between radius ∼ 2a and 4a shows the movement of the density lump as it orbits around the binary on an eccentric orbit with a period of ∼ 30 time units.

When trying to predict the future price movements of Zynga, one cannot ignore the fact that on April 26th, 3 days before the end of the first part of the lock-up period, the company will release its financial results for the first quarter of 2012.
When games meet reality: is Zynga overvalued?
No long periods of correlation exist in the GCMG asset price movement: as soon as lots of agents start taking the same action, then the strategies which produce that action are penalized, as can be seen from Equation 1.
Designing agent-based market models
For example, the series of asset price movements contains periods of very high correlation (and high volume) and periods of very high anticorrelation (and lower volume).

In addition, in order to generate a net propulsion from a time-periodic movement, we see from Eq. (13) that both the filament velocity u and its orientation angle θ need to vary periodically in time.

Thus, one can distinguish periodical behaviours, for λ = 0, dissipative movements with a fixed point or a basin of attraction (λ < 0), and aperiodical chaotic states (λ > 0), when the iterative discrete evolution of the solution series (Eqs. 5 and 6) leads to a chaotic pattern.

Both deadlocks could be resolved if drivers would follow their plans less “stubbornly”, i.e., after having unsuccessfully waited for a certain movement for a certain time period, they should just do something else.

Our strategies of child-care which are purely related to the movements on the lattice consist in defining a period Cm during which the mother and the child are forced to stay together: no child can move alone before reaching an age greater than Cm .

As discussed in detail in the previous paper (Amenomori et al. 1996), a considerable change is observed between 1990 and 1993 corresponding to the period near maximum or at declining phase of solar activity, and its movement seems to become quick steps after that.
