  Braid   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Braid got its start in Champaign-Urbana, Illinois in the early '90s after singer Bob Nanna placed an ad looking for people to trade live shows with in the punk rock fanzine Maximum Rock 'n' Roll and met drummer Roy Ewing.
Their sound is an infectious riot of great hooks, tight dangerous rhythms, and sheer emotional power that updates the strident propulsive energy of early Fugazi and the taut melodic punk of Jawbox.
Braid released three full-length albums, 1995's Frankie Welfare Boy Age 5, 1996's The Age of Octeen (after which drummer Ewing departed and was replaced by Damon Atkinson), and 1998's Frame and Canvas, as well as numerous seven-inches, before breaking up in 1999.

  James Braid biography
Dr James Braid is regarded by many as the 'Father of Hypnosis' for he was the man who coined the term "hypnosis" – because he made a mistake.
Braid's interest in the subject began in 1841 when the Swiss magnetiser, Charles Lafontaine was visiting Manchester to present performances of his abilities.
Braid suspected Lafontaine would proved to be a charlatan and on the evening of 13th November his initial expectations tended to be confirmed.

Homotopy corresponds to isotopy of the braid, homotopies of the strands such that none of them cross.
The presentation was given in Artin's first paper [1] on the braid group.

 braid
Braid proposed that it was suggestion which caused the trance and not the manner or the power of the hypnotist.
Braid must have worked very hard, as must his publisher and printers, because his extensive book Neurypnology was published little more than two years after he first watched the demonstration.
Since Braid did not found a school, his influence waned after his death and the center of Hypnosis moved to France in the second half of the nineteenth century.

 Dutch Crown Braid Instructions
Continue as for a dutch braid, adding smaller sections from the top (gathering only as far down as the braid is on the head) and larger sections for the bottom (from the braid to the base of the scalp, in the same line of the upper section, if possible.)
Loop the accent braid across the back of the head and secure it with a bobby pin at whatever point in the braid that the loop is a pretty length.
If the braid is especially long, secure it in the middle of the braid, once more about an inch to the inside of the loop, and loop the end back to where the braid started and bobby pin the end about an inch inside the start of the accent.

 Juggling Braids   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Each distinct braid can be considered a representative for an equivalence class of braids.
We define their product to be the braid that results when we place the braids end to end.
We can analyze the braids that result from juggling patterns in terms of braid group generators to establish similarities (and differences) between these patterns.

 Cortland Braid
Braided lines offer a combination of characteristics that cannot be matched by single strand lines.
After being constructed the raw braid is taken from the braiders and put into skeins or spooled on mill spools.
Selected braid is then thermal set for controlled elongation, locking in the optimum amount of stretch for the material and its final use.

 Class math.topol.Braid.braid
Returns the k-fold retraction of this braid, that is, the braid resulting from deleting the last k strands.
Creates a representation of this braid as a vector of crossings, with each crossing recording its index, which strands are involved, and whether it is a positive or a negative crossing.
This assumes that this braid is in fact an element of the normal subgroup of the pure n-strand braid group which is the kernel of the retraction map, in the form of a product of the free (Artin) generators.

 Braid Group
The identification between links, braids, and the braid group allows us to pass back and forth between the geometric study of braids (and hence knots and links) and the algebraic study of the braid group.
Figure 5.16(a) shows a closed braid on two strands that is equivalent to the trefoil knot; Figure 5.16(b) shows a closed braid on three strands that is equivalent to the Hopf link.
Each topologically equivalent class of braids represents a collection of words that are different representations for the same braid in the braid group.

 Fifteenth-Century Fingerlooped Braid Reproductions
Most of these braids involve the same sequence of movements; the differences lie in whether a particular loop is taken reversed or unreversed.
These two braids are worked with the same sequence of movements as regular seven-loop braids, but they add the element of twisting at a certain point in the sequence.
Several braids require the assistance of a "fellow." Stanley is not fiber-savvy, and his introduction lacks a certain ease with the subject matter; he was drawn to the manuscript by its copious use of obscure heraldic words (e.g., "maskel," "compon," "endented," and "ounde") to describe different types of braids.

 David Braid Sextet | Zhen: David Braid Sextet Live Volume II
Mnemosyne's March (2006), another live album with Braid and Mike Murley, and Zhen, paints a picture of Braid as a player and composer who is growing astonishingly quickly.
The effects that Braid gets out of this sextet are always surprising, yet they have an appropriateness that aids forward movement through the story the piece is telling.
Braid is particularly good at this in both his composing and playing.

Most impressive is the blank itself, as Braid's unique process layers graphite cloth and fiberglass from tip to butt, wetting it out with the finest resins to create the most awesome big game stand-up actions available today.
Braid's exaggerated "finger ribbing" keeps hands from sliding down the grip and losing leverage - a definite asset when pulling against giant fish.
The reason, as Dennis Braid will tell you, "Is to prevent power-stealing 'reel wobble' from hampering an angler's ability to beat a big fish quickly.
