The nature of man on Earth was formed after the nature of things in Heaven, and man had all things contained as potential within
himself, except divine life.

But he was as yet an untrained, undisciplined child, still nurtured simply upon the comforting bosom of Earth.
Man grew in stature, but Earth was not indulgent, for she disciplined him firmly.

She was ever strict and unyielding, chastening him often with blasts of displeasure.
It was indeed the upbringing of one destined for greatness; he was made to suffer cold, that he might learn to clothe himself; sent into the barren places, that his limbs should be strengthened, and into forests, that his eye should become keen and his heart strong.
He was perplexed with difficult problems and set the task of unravelling the illusions of Nature.

He was beset with hardships of every description.

He was tested with frustrations and tempted with allurements; never did Earth relax the vigilance of her supervision.
The English noun "supervision" derives from the two Latin words "super" (above) and "videre" (see, observe).
The child was raised sternly, for he needed the fortitude, courage and cunning of a man to fit him for the task ahead.

He grew wily and wiry in the hunt; he became adaptable, able to cope with any untoward happening.
Overcoming the bewilderments of early days, he found explanations for the perplexities of his surroundings.
Yet, the struggle for knowledge, the need for adaptation and the effort to survive were never relaxed.
The Earthchild was well trained and disciplined; he was never unduly mollycoddled.

He cried for bread and went hungry; he shivered and was cast out; he was sick and driven into the forest.
Weary, he was lashed with storms; thirsty, he found the waters dried.

When weak, his burden was increased, and in the midst of rejoicing, he was struck down with sorrow.
In moments of weakness he cried, "Enough!" and doubted his destiny; but always something fortified and encouraged him; the Earthling never forfeited his godlikeness.

@Light2020To In this study, ultrasound-mediated cavitation of microbubbles was investigated as a mean of enhancing the delivery of a liposome designed for chemo-radionuclide therapy targeted to EGFR overexpressing cancer.
@Light2020To Method: Liposomes (111In-EGF-LP-Dox) were prepared by encapsulation of doxorubicin (Dox) and surface functionalisation with Indium-111 tagged epidermal growth factor.

Applying pressure is a more general term than pushing, and is basically anything that prevents the enemy from simply doing whatever they want.
Ultrasound is defined by the American National Standards Institute as "sound at frequencies greater than 20 kHz". In air at atmospheric pressure, ultrasonic waves have wavelengths of 1.9 cm or less.
