I took this as a direct disproof
of his having really been chastised.
Nay, the very possibility of contradiction or disproof
, however remote, communicates to this feminine judgment from the first, in nine cases out of ten, the weakness attendant on the testimony of an interested witness; so personally and strongly does the fair diviner connect herself with her divination.
Volumnia, not being supposed to know (and indeed not knowing) what is the matter, has found it a ticklish task to offer appropriate observations and consequently has supplied their place with distracting smoothings of the bed-linen, elaborate locomotion on tiptoe, vigilant peeping at her kinsman's eyes, and one exasperating whisper to herself of, "He is asleep." In disproof
of which superfluous remark Sir Leicester has indignantly written on the slate, "I am not."
But the proof or disproof
of that never reached the public.
The doctrine of innate ideas is one of the most admirable faiths of philosophy, being itself an innate idea and therefore inaccessible to disproof
, though Locke foolishly supposed himself to have given it "a black eye." Among innate ideas may be mentioned the belief in one's ability to conduct a newspaper, in the greatness of one's country, in the superiority of one's civilization, in the importance of one's personal affairs and in the interesting nature of one's diseases.
Koenigsmann has obtained many results on Grothendieck's program of anabelian geometry as well: for example, the first proof of the birational variant of the section conjecture for all smooth projective curves of genus >1 over the field of p-adic numbers is due to him, as well as the disproof
of the conjecture and of its birational variant for the field of p-adic algebraic numbers.
In particular, he provides an alternative approach to his disproof
of the celebrated Triangulation conjecture.
The Zylofon man, whose claim of a United Kingdom office branch was embarrassingly packaged in doubt and disproof
by an ace journalist, Israel Laryea, has laced his boots for an international legal showdown with the Bank of Ghana (BOG) and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) over the closure of his business.
After a 23-day trial, he was convicted of health care fraud and on 10 of 15 false statement counts.<br />The judge set those verdicts aside, however, citing testimony about the difficulty of interpreting angiograms and the fact that "cardiologists frequently disagree with one another regarding the degree of stenosis."<br />"Since Paulus's interpretations could not be 'subject to proof or disproof
,' the district court concluded that they could be neither false nor fraudulent," the 6th Circuit wrote.<br />But the 6th Circuit noted that it had decided that degree of stenosis was a fact capable of proof or disproof
less than a year earlier in United States v.
In summary, infection with brucellosis was confirmed via a positive serology test and the disproof
of other differential diagnoses as well as an excellent response to standard antibrucellosis treatment in this case.
The Law of Population: A Treatise, in Six Books, in Disproof
of the Superfecundity of Human Beings, and Developing the Real Principle of Their Increase.
These concepts are beautiful in their own right, not proof or disproof
of the ultimate, metaphysical character of Being.
