• males
  • Before this time, as well as after-that is, when her eggs are not ripe, and again after his genes are safely tucked away inside the shells-he goes seeking extra-pair copulations with the mates of other males…who, of course, are busy with defensive mate-guarding of their own. (wikipedia.org)
  • McLachlan (1999) showed that male midges ( Paratrichocladius rufiventris ) infected with the mite Unionicola ypsilophora were more likely to be in mating pairs than uninfected males. (blogspot.com)
  • relationship
  • As in many of the best examples of British comedy, much of the humour derives from the pathos of the protagonists' situation, especially Harold's continually thwarted (usually by the elder Steptoe) attempts to "better himself" and the unresolvable love/hate relationship that exists between the pair. (wikipedia.org)
  • However, regardless of mating patterns, primate life is typically characterized by long-lasting social relationships (whether sexual, care-giving, coalitionary or otherwise) formed in the context of living in durable social groups, and any such durable relationship (whether exclusive or not) is characterized by some degree of bonding. (wikipedia.org)
  • The constitution of these bonds may vary over the course of the relationship, in ways that may either increase or decrease the intensity of the limerence. (wikipedia.org)
  • However, David, sensing that it may benefit a favourable outcome between their businesses, encourages the relationship and the pair soon fall in love and move in together. (wikipedia.org)
  • term
  • In doing so, negative emotions provide the motivation for social behavioral adjustments that can still keep the human pairbond together in maintaining their reproductive investment, when deeply rooted differences in optimal short-term mating strategies might otherwise tear them apart. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • Pair-bonding is a term coined in the 1940s that is frequently used in sociobiology and evolutionary biology circles. (wikipedia.org)
  • The term female bonding refers to the formation of close personal relationships between women. (wikipedia.org)
  • double bond
  • In oxymercuration, the alkene reacts with mercuric acetate (AcO-Hg-OAc) in aqueous solution to yield the addition of an acetoxymercury (HgOAc) group and a hydroxy (OH) group across the double bond. (wikipedia.org)
  • In the first step, the nucleophilic double bond attacks the mercury ion, ejecting an acetoxy group. (wikipedia.org)
  • With 4-t-butylcyclohexene, oxymercuration yields two products - where addition across the double bond is always anti - with slight preference towards acetoxymercury group trans to the t-butyl group, resulting in slightly more cis product. (wikipedia.org)
  • With 1-methyl-4-t-butylcyclohexene, oxymercuration yields only one product - still anti addition across the double bond - where water only attacks the more substituted carbon. (wikipedia.org)
  • The reason for anti addition across the double bond is to maximize orbital overlap of the lone pair of water and the empty orbital of the mercurinium ion on the opposite side of the acetoxymercury group. (wikipedia.org)
  • Regioselectivity is observed to favor water attacking the more substituted carbon, but water does not add syn across the double bond which implies that the transition state favors water attacking from the opposite side of the acetomercury group. (wikipedia.org)
  • carbon
  • Therefore, in the presence of attacking reagent, one bond is lost and this negatively charged attacking reagent links to the carbon having positive charge. (wikipedia.org)
  • love
  • Pair bonds are a bio-social creation while marriage is best defined in a purely social context as a way of assuring reproduction, inheriting property, control, and recently in history[citation needed] as the outcome of romantic love. (wikipedia.org)
  • Its goal is to urge you to (1) fall in love with reckless fireworks that propel sperm to egg, (2) bond long enough to fall in love with any kids so they have two caregivers, (3) get fed up with your mate, and (4) begin looking around for a new one. (reuniting.info)
  • In the 4th century BC, the Greek philosopher Plato argued that love directs the bonds of human society. (wikipedia.org)
  • When love "is directed, in temperance and justice, towards the good, whether in heaven or on earth: happiness and good fortune, the bonds of human society, concord with the gods above-all these are among his gifts" (188d). (wikipedia.org)
  • While some consider falling in love to be the nearest approach to a spiritual experience possible for the non-religious, others say its loss of ego boundaries is merely a temporary phenomenon which has little to do with, or may even block, spiritual development. (wikipedia.org)
  • forms
  • It is important that these receptors are in the reward centers of the brain because that could lead to a conditioned parter in the prairie vole compared to the montane vole which would explain why the prairie vole forms pair bonds and the montane vole does not. (wikipedia.org)
  • life
  • Although the rodents seem to pairbond for life, a female will take a new partner if the male dies, for example, notes Tilghman. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • The pair slowly begin to bond as they make a temporary life together, playing chess, catching mosquitoes, trapping a mouse, telling stories and imagining they are somewhere else. (wikipedia.org)
  • time
  • He was fascinated by the vivid Technicolor hallucinations, warped perception of time and space, and the temporary dismantling of the ego. (neatorama.com)
  • According
  • According to limerence theory, posited in 1979 by psychologist Dorothy Tennov, a certain percentage of couples may go through what is called a limerent reaction, in which one or both of the pair may experience a state of passion mixed with continuous intrusive thinking, fear of rejection, and hope. (wikipedia.org)
  • often
  • The first series has the pair as very rough looking and often dirty and wearing ragged clothes, but they quickly "tidied up" for later series. (wikipedia.org)
