A PAC provides a legal means for corporations in the U. S. to support political candidates even when direct contributions from corporations to candidates is forbidden by law. In theory, the corporation may not itself contribute to a PAC, but may pay the expenses of raising money from individuals. PACs may also be formed by organizations other than commercial corporations, such as trade associations.</def> <mark>[Acronym, U. S.]</mark><br/
-<br/
-<note> PACs became popular in the 1970's after campaign finance reform laws put limits on the amount of money which an individual can contribute to each candidate for public office. In addition to simply supporting candidates with specific viewpoints, the unstated purpose of PACs is to make politicians aware of their viewpoints, by aggregating sums of money into significant single donations. This latter effect has aroused criticism of PACs from reformers who feel that large donations bias the political process.</note><br/

-<b>Economy</b>
-Economic overview: Pakistan is a poor, highly populated Third World country struggling to make the difficult transition to the modern world of high technology and internationalized markets. Prime Minister Benazir BHUTTO has been under pressure from the IMF and other donors to continue the economic reforms and austerity measures begun by her predecessor, caretaker Prime Minister Moeen QURESHI (July-October 1993). The IMF suspended a $1.5 billion Enhanced Structural Adjustment Facility (ESAF) in mid-1995 because Pakistan slowed the pace of economic reform. Islamabad's most recent budget -- announced in June 1995 -- reversed some reforms agreed to by the IMF earlier that year, including a slowing of tariff reform. In mid-December 1995, however, the IMF approved a $600 million standby arrangement and urged Pakistan to move forward with economic liberalization. Islamabad has agreed to new economic targets with the IMF, which could lay the basis for a return to an ESAF in 1996. Little progress was made in the privatization of large state-owned units in 1995. The sale of the power plant Kot Addu - scheduled for April 1995 - was stalled by opposition from labor unions. The sale of a 26% share of United Bank Limited and the Pakistan Telecommunications Corporation to strategic investors was due to take place in 1995 but has been pushed back to 1996. On the plus side real GDP grew 4.7% in 1995, up from 3.9% in 1994: GDP should grow even faster in 1996 as a result of an above average cotton crop. Secondly, Islamabad reduced the budget deficit to 5.6% of GDP at the end of FY94/95, down from 8% two years earlier. Thirdly, Pakistan attracted $1.6 billion in foreign direct and portfolio investment in FY94/95, more than double inflows of $650 million in the previous fiscal year; financial agreements were reached on five power projects in 1995, including the 1,300-MW $1.8 billion Hab River project. Despite these improvements, the economy remains vulnerable to crisis. Foreign exchange reserves fell dramatically in 1995, reaching a low of about $1 billion in early December 1995 -- only five weeks of import cover -- before rising to $1.5 billion by yearend. The trade deficit rose to $2 billion for the first six months of FY94/95, triple the deficit of $600 million during the same period in FY93/94. The government responded to this situation with a package of stabilization reforms on 28 October 1995 which included a 7% devaluation of the rupee, supplementary duties of 10% on many imports, and higher petroleum prices. Islamabad hopes these moves will help make its exports more competitive. For the long run, Pakistan must deal with serious problems of deteriorating infrastructure, low literacy levels, and persistent law and order problems in Karachi.

Palatinatus, the province of count palatine, from palatinatus, palatine.]</ety> A former German State. Its territories were originally in the region of the Rhine, and from the 14th century to 1620 embraced two separate regions, the Rhine (or Lower) Palatinate (distinctively the Palatinate), and the Upper Palatinate (see below). The palsgraves on the Rhine, whose original seat was at Aix-la-Chapelle, were important princes of the empire as early as the 11th century. Early in the 13th century the Palatinate passed to the Bavarian dynasty of Wittelsbach, which soon after branched off into the Bavarian and palatine lines. The Palatinate was enlarged early in the 14th Century with a part of Bavaria (the Upper Palatinate). The Golden Bull of 1356 designated the Palatinate as one of the seven electorates. In the 16th century Heidelberg, the capital of the electors palatine, became a great center of Calvinism. The elector <person>Frederick V.</person>, having accepted the Bohemian crown in 1619, and having been overthrown in 1620, was stripped of his dominions. The electoral dignity was transferred to Bavaria in 1623, and the Upper Palatinate was annexed to it. By the treaty of 1648 the Rhine Palatinate was restored to its former rulers, and an eighth electorate created for it, the Upper Palatinate being confirmed to Bavaria. The Rhine palatinate was terribly ravaged by the French in 1674 and 1689. The Palatinate and the Bavarian lands were united in 1777. In 1801 the Rhine Palatinate was divided: all west of the Rhine was ceded to France; Baden received Heidelberg, Mannheim, etc.; and the rest fell to Hesse-Darmstadt, Nassau, etc. By the treaties of 1814-15 the French portion west of the Rhine was restored to Germany: Prussia and Hesse-Darmstadt received portions, but the greater portion fell to Bavaria. This part is the present Rhine Palatinate, or Lower Palatinate (G. Rheinpfalz or Unterpfalz): it is bounded by the Rhine on the east, and borders on Hesse, Prussia, and Alsace-Lorraine. It forms a "Regierungs-bezirk" of Bavaria, with Spires as Capital. It is traversed by the Hardt Mountains, and produces grain, wine, coal, etc. Area, 2,289 square miles. Population (1890), 728,339. The Upper Palatinate (9. Oberpfalz) forms a "Regierungs-bezirk" of Bavaria under the title Upper Palatinate and Ratisbon (Regensburg). It borders on Bohemia. Capital, Ratisbon. It has extensive forests and flourishing industries. Area, 3,729 square miles. Population (1890), 537,954.</note><br/

Most of the manuscripts underlying the palimpsests that have been revived are fragmentary, but some are of great historical value.

-<p><note><hand/ <b>Palimpsest</b> is the name given to ancient parchments which have been used more than once for writing purposes. The conquest of Egypt by the Saracens in the 7th century cut off from Europe the papyrus which was used to write on, and parchment could be had only in limited quantities. So through the dark ages, old manuscripts were used, after removing the first writing upon them. Sometimes the writing was washed off with a sponge, and the parchment smoothed with pumice stone; at other times the letters were scraped away with a sharp blade. Nearly all ancient manuscripts, however, were written with an ink which could not be entirely removed, and traces of a former writing could be seen beneath the new copy. In modern times there have been various efforts to restore these ancient writings by some chemical treatment. In this way have been found copies of the <booki>Republic</booki> of <persfn>Cicero</persfn>, the <booki>Institutes</booki> of <persfn>Gaius</persfn>, a part of the <booki>Epistle to the Romans</booki>, and other parts of the Old and New Testaments. The <booki>Republic</booki> of <persfn>Cicero</persfn> was covered by a commentary on the Psalms, written by <person>St. Augustine</person>.</note> <au>Student's Cyclopedia, 1897.</au><br/

-<p><note><hand/ In an auction on November 6, 1998, a 12th-century palimpsest of one of Archimedes' works was sold for 2 million dollars. The 174-page book, the oldest known copy of Archimedes' work, had been owned by a French family since the 1920s, and was sold by Christie's auction house in New York to an unidentified private American collector.
- The palimpsest volume includes notes and calculations for two of the Greek mathematician's most famous theories, <it>On Floating Bodies</it> and <it>Method of Mechanical Theorems</it>.
- A Christie's spokesperson said the buyer, who was not identified, indicated that the work would be made available to scholars.
- Also bidding was the Greek government, which claimed the work was stolen from a library in the former Constantinople, now Istanbul, and belonged to Greece. According to the Athens News Agency, the Patriarchate of Jerusalem took Christie's to court claiming that the manuscript was part of its library, which had been transferred to Istanbul and later to Athens for safekeeping. The court, however, ruled that Christie's had the right to auction the manuscript for a French family, which claimed to own it for the last 75 years since one of the family's ancestors bought it from Orthodox monks in Istanbul. According to the court's ruling, French law applied in the case, under which a person who holds any object for more than 30 years becomes its rightful owner.</note><br/

While working here as a surveyor his attention was attracted by an enameled cup, and he determined to discover the process and after 16 years of continuous labor and experiment in which he used all his resources and burned the tables and floors for fuel, he succeeded, and though imprisoned in 1562 as a Huguenot he was released by royal edict and appointed "inventor of figulines" to the king. He removed to Paris in 1564, and through the aid of <person>Catherine de Medici</person> was saved from the massacre of St. Bartholomew. From 1575 to 1584 he gave a course of lectures on physics and natural history, demonstrating the origin of springs, the formation of fossil shell, and the best method of purifying water.

We <xex>extenuate</xex> a crime when we endeavor to show that it is <xex>less</xex> than has been supposed; we <xex>palliate</xex> a crime when we endeavor to <xex>cover</xex> or <xex>conceal</xex> its enormity, at least in part. This naturally leads us to soften some of its features, and thus <xex>palliate</xex> approaches <xex>extenuate</xex> till they have become nearly or quite identical. \'bdTo <xex>palliate</xex> is not now used, though it once was, in the sense of wholly cloaking or covering over, as it might be, our sins, but in that of <xex>extenuating</xex>; to <xex>palliate</xex> our faults is not to hide them altogether, but to seek to diminish their guilt in part.\'b8 <rj><au>Trench.</au></rj></usage><br/

-<p><note><hand/ Palms are perennial woody plants, often of majestic size. The trunk is usually erect and rarely branched, and has a roughened exterior composed of the persistent bases of the leaf stalks. The leaves are borne in a terminal crown, and are supported on stout, sheathing, often prickly, petioles. They are usually of great size, and are either pinnately or palmately many-cleft. There are about one thousand species known, nearly all of them growing in tropical or semitropical regions. The wood, petioles, leaves, sap, and fruit of many species are invaluable in the arts and in domestic economy. Among the best known are the date palm, the cocoa palm, the fan palm, the oil palm, the wax palm, the palmyra, and the various kinds called cabbage palm and palmetto.</note><br/

-
-<p><note><hand/ The theory rests on the assumption, that the whole organization, in the sense of every separate atom or unit, reproduces itself, the cells throwing off minute granules called <xex>gemmules</xex>, which circulate freely throughout the system and multiply by subdivision. These gemmules collect in the reproductive organs and products, or in buds, so that the egg or bud contains gemmules from all parts of the parent or parents, which in development give rise to cells in the offspring similar to those from which they were given off in the parent. The hypothesis also assumes that these gemmules need not in all cases develop into cells, but may lie dormant, and be transmitted from generation to generation without producing a noticeable effect until a case of atavism occurs. This is an ingenious hypothesis, but now known to be wrong. Although now, a hundred years later, we know that all transmitted genetic information (other than that in plasmids) is contained in the genome of a single cell, scientists are still only beginning to understand the development process.</note><br/

Born at <city>Maria-Einsiedeln</city>, in the Canton of Schwyz, <country>Switzerland</country>, Dec. 17 (or 10 Nov.), 1493: died at <city>Salzburg</city>, Sept. 23 (or 24), 1541. A celebrated German-Swiss physician, reformer of therapeutics, iatrochemist, and alchemist. He attended school in a small lead-mining district where his father, <person>William Bombast von Hohenheim</person>, was a physician and teacher of alchemy. The family originally came from <city>W<uum/rtemberg</city>, where the noble family of Bombastus was in possession of the ancestral castle of Hohenheim near <city>Stuttgart</city> until 1409. He entered the University of <city>Basel</city> at the age of sixteen, where he adopted the name <qex>Paracelsus</qex>, after <persfn>Celsius</persfn>, a noted Roman physician. But he left without a degree, first going to <city>Wurtzburg</city> to study under <person>Joannes Trithemius</person>, Abbot of Sponheim (1462-1516), a famous astrologer and alchemist, who initiated him into the mysteries of alchemy. He then spent many years in travel and intercourse with distinguished scholars, studied and practiced medicine and surgery, and at one point attended the Diet of Worms. He was appointed to the office of city physician of Basel, which also made him a lecturer on medicine at <city>Basel</city> about 1526, where, through the publisher <person>Johan Frobenius</person> he made friends with the scholar <persfn>Erasmus</persfn>; and there he fulminated against the medical pseudo-science of his day, and against the blind adherence to ancient medical authorities such as <persfn>Hippocrates</persfn>, <persfn>Galen</persfn>, and <persfn>Avicenna</persfn>, which was still the prevalent philosophy of medicine in the sixteenth century. But soon, in 1528, he was driven from the city by the medical corporations, whose methods he had severely criticized. He found refuge with friends, and traveled and practiced medicine, but could not find a publisher willing to print his books. He preached frequently the need for experimentation in medicine. He is important in the history of medicine chiefly on account of the impetus which he gave to the development of pharmaceutical chemistry. He was also the author of a visionary and theosophic system of philosophy. The first collective edition of his works appeared at <city>Basel</city> in 1589-91. Among the many legends concerning him is that concerning his long sword, which he obtained while serving as barber-surgeon during the Neapolitan wars. It was rumored that in the hilt of the sword he kept a familiar or small demon; some thought he carried the elixer of life in the sword. He is buried in the cemetary of the <org>Hospital of St. Sebastian</org> in <city>Salzburg</city>. For more detailed information about Paracelsus, there is a special project, the <a href="http://www.mhiz.unizh.ch/Paracelsus.html">Zurich Paracelsus Project</a> available on the Web.</def> <au>Century Dict., 1906</au>; <au>Bernard Jaffe (Crucibles: The Story of Chemistry, Revised Edition, 1948).</au><br/

-<p><q>The apothecaries, too, were enraged against this iconoclast [Paracelsus]. For had he not, as official town physician, demanded the right to inspect their stocks and rule over their prescriptions which he denounced as "foul broths"? These apothecaries had grown fat on the barbarous prescriptions of the local doctors. "The physician's duty is to heal the sick, not to enrich the apothecaries," he had warned them, and refused to send his patients to them to have the prescriptions compounded. He made his own medicines instead, and gave them free to his patients.<br/

- Then they hatched a plot and before long <city>Basel</city> had lost <qex>Paracelsus</qex>, ostensibly because of the meanness of a wealthy citizen. <qex>Paracelsus</qex> had sued <person>Canon Lichtenfels</person> for failure to pay him one hundred guldens promised for a cure. The patient had offered only six guldens, and the fiery <qex>Paracelsus</qex>, when the court deliberately handed in a verdict against him, rebuked it in such terms that his life was in imminent danger. In the dead of night, he was persuaded by his friends to leave secretly the city where he had hurled defiance at the pseudo-medicos of the world.</q> <rj><qau>Bernard Jaffe (Crucibles: The Story of Chemistry, Revised Edition, 1948)</qau></rj><br/

-<p><q> Although the theories of <qex>Paracelsus</qex> as contrasted with the Galeno-Arabic system indicate no advance, inasmuch as they ignore entirely the study of anatomy, still his reputation as a reformer of therapeutics is justified in that he broke new paths in the science. He may be taken as the founder of modern materia medica, and pioneer of scientific chemistry, since before his time medical science received no assistance from alchemy. To <qex>Paracelsus</qex> is due the use of mercury for syphilis as well as a number of other metallic remedies, probably a result of his studies in Schwaz, and partly his acquaintance with the quicksilver works in Idria.</q> <rj><qau>Catholic Encyclopedia, 1911</qau></rj><br/

-<p><sn>1.</sn> <def>A device made of a piece of cloth, usually silk, attached to multiple chords fastened to a harness; when attached to a person or object falling through the air, it opens from a folded configuration into an umbrella-shaped form, thus slowing the rate of descent so that a safe descent and landing may be made through the air from an airplane, balloon, or other high point. It is commonly used for descending to the ground from a flying airplane, as for military operations (as of airborne troops) or in an emergency, or for sport. In the case of use as a sport, the descent from an airplane by parachute is called <er>sky diving</er>. Some older versions of parachute were more rigid, and were shaped somewhat in the form of an umbrella.</def></p>

-<p><note> Paradoxism originated in Romania in the 1980s as a way of protesting against a closed society and a totalitarian regime. It is based on an excessive use of antimonies, antitheses, contradictions, oxymorons, and paradoxes. It was set up and led by the writer <person>Florentin Smarandache</person> in the 1980's, who said: \'bdThe goal is the enlargement of the artistic sphere through non-artistic elements\'b8.<br/
- One example of such a paradox is the two-line poem:<br/
- Even if he didn't<br/
- He did<br/

-<p><note><hand/ <xex>Parenthesis</xex>, in technical grammar, is that part of a sentence which is inclosed within the recognized sign; but many phrases and sentences which are punctuated by commas are logically parenthetical. In def. 1, the phrase \'bdby way of comment or explanation\'b8 is inserted for explanation, and the sentence would be grammatically complete without it. The present tendency is to avoid using the distinctive marks, except when confusion would arise from a less conspicuous separation.</note><br/
