Medical uses
Nuclear medicine is a medical specialty involving the application of radioactive substances in the diagnosis and treatment of disease.
In nuclear medicine procedures, radionuclides are combined with other elements to form chemical compounds, or else combined with existing pharmaceutical compounds, to form radiopharmaceuticals. These radiopharmaceuticals, once administered to the patient, can localize to specific organs or cellular receptors. This property of radiopharmaceuticals allows nuclear medicine the ability to image the extent of a disease process in the body, based on the cellular function and physiology, rather than relying on physical changes in the tissue anatomy. In some diseases, nuclear medicine studies can identify medical problems at an earlier stage than other diagnostic tests. Nuclear medicine, in a sense, is "radiology done inside out", or "endo-radiology", because it records radiation emitting from within the body rather than radiation that is generated by external sources like X-rays.
Treatment of diseased tissue, based on metabolism or uptake or binding of a particular ligand, may also be accomplished, similar to other areas of pharmacology. However, the treatment effects of radiopharmaceuticals rely on the tissue-destructive power of short-range ionizing radiation.
Industrial uses
Radiation sources provide critical capabilities in the oil and gas, electrical power (utilities) construction, manufacturing and food industries. They are used to treat millions of patients each year in diagnostic and therapeutic procedures and also are used in a variety of military applications. In addition, academic, government, and private institutions use radioactive sources in technology research and development. These materials are as diverse in geographic location as they are in functional use. From transmittal letter to President of EPACT…...

...Psychology I don’t know what to say except hello. I am not sure how many words this is but yes I am going to do a lot of words. Hey if this works why not. It will only take me a few minutes anyway. It is worth a shot. Who knows if it will work or not. At least this way we know for sure if it will work or not. Dman those fucking neighbors upstairs are sooo annoying. They are very loud. I am running out of things to say so I am just typing whatever voice is in my head right now. Freaking people cannot drive. I am people are too loud, and don’t get me started on my cousin.. they don’t even trust their own kind.. family will be family. Ok ok ok you are right. It seems like no matter where you go, how much you shell out for rent, or how great the area is - there is almost always that one noisy, rude neighbor who is either completely oblivious of the world around them, or they're just flat out inconsiderate of others. While there are some noisy days that can be forgiven (New Year's Eve, for example) - frequent noise disturbance can become more than just a nuisance, and in some cases it can become an extremely serious issue. Tip #1 - Keep A Record! When having issues with a noisy neighbor - you should keep a record of dates and times when the noise was an issue - whether it was too loud, a minor annoyance or just plain overwhelming. While it's wishful thinking that the issue won't escalate to a true point of seriousness - it is better to be prepared and safe, rather than...

...same period. As you can see, there is a positive association between inflation and the growth rate of the money supply: The countries with the highest inflation rates are also the ones with the highest money growth rates. Belarus, Brazil, Romania, and Russia, for example , experienced high inflation during this period, and their rates of money growth were high. By contrast, the United Kingdom and the United States had low inflation rates over the same period , and their rates of money growth have been low. Such evidence led Milton Friedman, a Nobel laureate in economics , to make the famous 2 statement, "Inflation is always and everywhere a monetary phenomenon."
