Modern Mix Serial

Perhaps no mark of punctuation ruffles feathers more than the serial comma (also called series comma, Oxford comma, and Harvard comma). This comma precedes the final item in a list or series, before the word and or or. With the exception of newspapers, most publications use the serial comma, because it helps writers avoid ambiguity. Who would object to unambiguous prose? you might ask. Fair-weather comma users: publications that do not require the serial comma may use it only when misreading results. Proponents of the serial comma, like the MLA, would decry the inconsistency of the use-it-when-you-need-it approach and advocate using the serial comma in all series of three or more items or phrases.

Modern Mix Serial

Still not convinced of the importance of the serial comma? A court ruling in a labor dispute earlier this year upped the stakes of this normally low-profile punctuation mark. The decision centered on the absence of a serial comma in a Maine state law, which could end up costing a company millions of dollars in overtime pay to truck drivers. An appeals court agreed with the drivers that the missing comma rendered the interpretation of the law ambiguous, and the lawyer representing the drivers credited the absence of the comma with winning them the case (Victor). A win for the drivers and for champions of the serial comma!

I think you're missing the point Fred. In the smoothie example, the drinks could be: strawberry, peach and mango, and pineapple; OR they could be: strawberry, peach, and mango and pineapple. Thus, you do need the serial comma to know which fruit is combined with which.

Question: I remember being taught (granted, a long time ago) that when using serial semicolons in a list, one would use a comma for the very last semicolon. Not sure why now or in what context I was taught that. Is this incorrect?

Is there a citation for the serial semicolon from the mla citation guide? My doctoral advisor would like me to change my serial semicolons to commas but then my sentences would be a complete mess. I may be able to convince her to keep the serial semicolons if I could direct her to the correct passage in the mla citation guide.

Allison, you can find information about serial semicolons on p. 70 (3.2.3b) of the 7th edition (2009) of the MLA Handbook. It is not in the 8th edition. You might also point your adviser to this post (this is the official, authorized Web site of MLA style, written and edited by the same team that publishes the Handbook.)

Thanks for your comment. A writer or publishing style should use or omit the serial comma consistently, which aids in clarity. In cases where using a serial comma may introduce ambiguity, we prefer to recast the sentence.

Let us not be afraid to use parentheses along with colons (full disclosure: I just don't like serial semicolons).In his report, Mr. McCarthy presented on: the annual budget, his plans to hire for three new positions (director of operations, a chief financial officer, and a human resources assistant), the fundraising efforts of the development committee (which expects to meet its goal by the end of the fiscal year), the recent accomplishments of the committees on accessibility, research, and sustainability, and the restructuring of the product development team.You really don't even necessarily need the colon then, and no matter how you slice it, the sentence is long-winded as hell. (That's its own issue.)

Observing the catalytic action of a biomolecule in atomic detail has been the dream of structural biologists since the first structure of an enzyme was solved [1, 2]. By exploiting X-ray radiation from powerful synchrotron sources, time-resolved crystallographic methods were developed [3] with the goal of achieving a complete description of a reaction in real time [4, 5]. However, X-ray damage and the need for large single crystals made time-resolved crystallography very challenging. The advent of X-ray free-electron lasers (XFELs) has enabled time-resolved serial femtosecond (fs) crystallography (SFX), where X-ray damage is outrun by ultrashort fs X-ray pulses [6, 7]. This approach has made it possible to follow and describe cyclic and non-cyclic reactions triggered by light. Examples include pioneering studies on the photoactive yellow protein [8, 9], myoglobin [10], bacteriorhodopsin [11], photoswitchable fluorescent proteins [12, 13], and photosystem II [14,15,16,17]. However, structural investigations on one-pathway enzymatic reactions present additional difficulties, because diffusion of substrate(s) and products in and out of the crystals limit the accessible reaction times. Standard crystallography can be used to track reaction intermediates of slow reactions by flash cooling [18,19,20], but the method is then unable to reveal enzymatic reactions at room temperature in real time. The problem is to start a reaction in large-sized crystals. Initiation by diffusion is far slower in these crystals than the typical millisecond turnover times of enzymes. It was proposed that one can trigger enzymatic reactions by light by soaking inactive (caged) substrates [21] into the crystals, which then can be activated by a laser pulse. The first proof of concept for time-resolved Laue crystallography triggered by a caged substrate was achieved in 1990 [22]. While this method has great potential, its application has so far been limited due to significant experimental challenges. Only a few time-resolved experiments have been reported where highly reactive, caged substrates are readily available [18, 22, 23], or the reactions are slow and allow the use of more conventional methods [24, 25]. It is therefore highly desirable to develop new methods that open the field of time-resolved crystallography to the study of biomolecular reactions at room temperature with the native enzyme and its natural substrate(s).

Serial Grillers co-owners and brothers Travis and William Miller designed the space with a modern-industrial vibe in mind, featuring a custom black walnut table and counters, metal accents, and neutral colors. Approximately 68 seats will be inside with 24 seats outside.

Serial Grillers originally opened as a food truck in 2012, serving cheesesteaks and burgers named after serial killers. The following summer, they opened a brick-and-mortar restaurant followed by a second restaurant in 2017. A third location opened in September this year, with two additional locations in the works.

Many procedures performed in modern biology and chemistry laboratories require sets of solutions that cover a range of concentration*s. These include quantifying the number of bacteria in a sample using plate counts and the development of standard curves for quantitative colorimetric, radiometric, and enzymatic assays. Scientists perform serial dilution* to create these sets of solutions that cover a range of concentrations.

To perform a serial dilution, a small amount of a well-mixed solution is transferred into a new container, and additional water or other solvent* is added to dilute the original solution. The diluted sample is then used as the base solution to make an additional dilution. Doing this several times results in a range of concentrations.

King of the Texas Rangers (1941) is a Republic film serial.[2] Set in the years prior to America entering World War II, the plot is slightly anachronistic in that the serial features a mix of period western and modern elements, which was not unknown in the B-Western films also produced by Republic.[3] Although the serial's plot involves cowboys battling Axis agents in Texas. Nazis are never named as such but their presence is strongly implied within the serial.[4][a].mw-parser-output .toclimit-2 .toclevel-1 ul,.mw-parser-output .toclimit-3 .toclevel-2 ul,.mw-parser-output .toclimit-4 .toclevel-3 ul,.mw-parser-output .toclimit-5 .toclevel-4 ul,.mw-parser-output .toclimit-6 .toclevel-5 ul,.mw-parser-output .toclimit-7 .toclevel-6 uldisplay:none

King of the Texas Rangers (production number 996) was budgeted at $138,536 although the final negative cost was $139,701 (a $1,165, or 0.8%, overspend). The serial was the cheapest Republic serial of 1941. King of the Texas Rangers was filmed in the Big Bear Valley, San Bernardino National Forest, California between June 17 and July 18, 1941.[1]

The official release date of King of the Texas Rangers is October 4, 1941, although this is actually the date the sixth chapter was made available to film exchanges. In the early 1950s, King of the Texas Rangers was one of 14 Republic serials edited into a television series broadcast in six, 26-minute episodes.[1]

Introduction: 1967Discontinued: 1977Background: The following description of the Seven Sound Set was printed in Paiste's 1969 catalog:"A set of seven cymbals each in a new unusual sound-color. Sound colors the demanding drummer is looking for to enrich his personal cymbal set. Particularly, the SEVEN SOUND SET enables the studio drummer to fulfill the many and often unusual sound demands involved in modern recording and studio work."

Introduction: 1967ish - 1977 (based on serial numbers)Discontinued: 1976Background: "Late '65, early '66 after Ludwig took over the distribution of Formula 602's for North America, Joe Morello was approached by Bill Ludwig to endorse Paiste. Since Joe played and endorsed Ludwig Drums, he was the obvious choice for a signature cymbal set baring his name. Paiste catalog: "In personal collaboration with Joe Morello, this beautiful melodically coordinated set was created" A custom set of Formula 602 cymbals made to Joe's specification (the 1st. artist model!) comprising of 14" sound edge hi hats, 17", 18" and 20" sizes. Visual cues show much finer lathing and possibly different hammering compared to the standard 602'sAlloy: B20 (CuSn20)Production: Hand hammered and hand lathed bronze. Fine tonal groove lathing. Applications: Jazz styles appropriate for the era (late 60's).Sound: Similar to the standard 602's possibly a little darker?
