Mohandas Gandhi, known as 'Mahatma Gandi', 1869-1948. See the movie Gandi. Gandi was an Indian nationalist and spiritual leader who developed the practice of nonviolent disobedience based on writings of Henry David Thoreau. One of Gandi's quotes shows his heart:."I honor within you the place of love, of light, of truth, of peace; when you are in that place in you and I am in that place in me, there's only one of us."

Mahatma Gandhi, was educated in law at University College, London. In 1891, after having been admitted to the British bar, Gandhi returned to India and attempted to establish a law practice in Bombay (now Mumbai), with little success. Two years later an Indian firm with interests in South Africa retained him as legal adviser in its office in Durban, South Africa. Arriving in Durban, Gandhi found himself treated as a member of an inferior race. He was appalled at the widespread denial of civil liberties and political rights to Indian immigrants to South Africa. He threw himself into the struggle for elementary rights for Indians.

Gandhi remained in South Africa for 20 years, suffering imprisonment many times. In 1896, after being attacked and beaten by white South Africans, Gandhi began to teach a policy of passive resistance to and noncooperation with the South African authorities. Part of the inspiration for this policy came from the Russian writer Leo Tolstoy, whose influence on Gandhi was profound. Gandhi also acknowledged his debt to the teachings of Christ and to the 19th-century American writer Henry David Thoreau, especially to Thoreau's famous essay.Civil Disobedience..Microsoft® Encarta® Encyclopedia 99. © 1993-1998 Microsoft Corporation.

gluon.noun,.plural.gluons
elementary particles thought to bind quarks together. A gluon is the gauge boson of part of the interacting forces of gravity and electromagnetism and used to be referred to as the Strong Interaction. Gluons exert an astounding strong force binding quarks, a force that resists diminishing when quarks are pulled apart; and, unusually, the farther the quarks are separated, the greater is the energy that builds between them and the more unavailing are efforts to disunite them; this is the antithesis to what occurs when the electromagnetic force binds electrons to the nucleus by using its photon energy vehicles

glycoprotein.noun,.plural.glycoproteins
a carbohydrate linked covalently to a protein formed in the Golgi apparatus; this is the creation of a compound in which a protein is combined with a carbohydrate group. Glycoproteins are important components of cell-membranes. They are also a constituent of mucous

Golgi apparatus.noun
an assembly of vesciles and folded membranes within the cytoplasm of cells, which assembly branches from the endoplasmic reticulum to carry proteins to this apparatus that modifies, stores and in turn transports these modified secretory-protein products (enzymes and hormones) as needed by the cell; the vesciles deliver the product to the component of the cell calling for a particular parcel; like you may call a manufacturer for a product and give your address, expecting delivery by a courier

gravity.noun
solemnity or dignity of manner; honesty, purity; the characteristic of a thing or person which entitles respect, dignity
Physics:.gravity is not really a force but a name we give to an occurrence due to pressure of the mysterious dark matter-mass, with perhaps also photons and neutrinos playing a part; it's not possible to tell if you are being pulled downward by gravity or accelerating upward; gravity and acceleration are equal

Can the result of resistance to movement (movement of the photons, neutrinos, etc., the dark matter being the inert carrier) by mass (mass held in place by dark matter), be really called gravity?

Gravity is one of the two fundamental 'forces' necessary for all existence thoroughout the Universe; the other being electromagnetism and from these two another two were concocted, that of the strong interaction (or, the strong force), and the weak interaction (or, the weak force)

Gravity is the phenomenon that causes an attractive force between any two bodies that have mass. It isn't this attractive force but rather, electromagnetism which causes what's called gravity. What truly is gravity is beyond physics at the present time. Falling objects descend at 32 feet per second (9.8 meters) depending on their weight and any air resistance.
