Wandering like children with untroubled eyes,
Far from the noise of cities and the strife,
Strange flute-like voices rise

Like those of this willow, the work of love?
Do they not come, like the voice of truth,
That is heard all around us here, from above?
"For The Album of Miss Caroline C---" by John Pierpont
"The hum of their voices comes laden with cheer,
As the wind wafts a musical swell to my ear,--
Wild, clarion catches,--now flute-like and low;
--Would you like me to give you their Song of the Snow?

In science:

The most that could be said to distinguish the two subconditions is that, since ˆb is (by definition) controllable and B (most likely) isn’t, a violation of 6 is (all other things being equal) more likely to yield the possibility of superluminal signaling than a violation of 7.
Local Causality and Completeness: Bell vs. Jarrett
Although both relations are clearly more like one another than like the bulk of the population, there are significant differences.
Evolution in the structural properties of early-type Brightest Cluster Galaxies at small lookback time and dependence on the environment
An attractive property of these new patterns is that, like classical patterns (but not like GPs!), they are closed under the action of D8, the symmetry group of the square.
Place-difference-value patterns: A generalization of generalized permutation and word patterns
This is likely to be an extremely hard problem, and we will therefore only provide proofs about some aspects in the context of that our ‘BKL-like’ assumptions hold.
Perfect fluids and generic spacelike singularities
However, we here studied asymptotic dynamics in a general infinite-dimensional dynamical systems setting, where we pursued the consequences of BKL-like assumptions, and this led e.g. to the conclusion that comoving fluid gauges are, for the most physically interesting fluid cases, incompatible with BKL-like behavior.
Perfect fluids and generic spacelike singularities
The quoted lemma of de Rhams is a purely geometrical statement, notions such as integrals over forms, like an action, are not discussed, nor observed parity violations like the one in the electrodynamics of the antiferromagnet Cr2O3 .

They are of the form: xi ∗ xk = xj in the case of a crossing like the one in Fig.3(a), or xi ¯∗ xk = xj, for the crossing like in Fig.3(b).
Coloring invariants of spatial graphs
In the absence of a tachocline, these stars cannot support a solar-like interface dynamo, yet they, like the high mass stars, exhibit observable magnetic fields (10 − 103 G).
Cosmic Magnetic Fields: from Stars and Galaxies to the Primordial Universe
Since e preserves N, we have that for arbitrarily large substructures of U, it behaves like the identity or like eN on and between the parts of these structures; in particular, it does not turn any non-edges into edges on and between the parts of these structures.

In fact, we could have chosen Yt to be a CIR-like process instead of an OU-like process without changing the nature of the correction to the Heston model presented in the paper.

There are also energy sources like the supernova explosion that was likely to precede the formation of the compact accretor and a slow wind similar to that of SS433 (Fabrika, 2004).
Understanding ULX Nebulae in the Framework of Supercritical Accretion
Another parallel with AGN is in the pair of relativistic jets that in the case of SS433-like ob jects are likely to produce something similar to the cocoons that were predicted (Begelman and Cioffi, 1989) but are not observed around AGN mainly due to strong gradients in ISM and IGM density.
