  Medieval Theories of Demonstration (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy)
Demonstrations concerning particulars, and demonstrations arguing from theorems in the science which are not traced back to first principles, are also demonstrations that it is the case.
So in the case of a natural demonstration, the subject is the causal outcome of the predicate (the noise, or thunder, results from the extinction of fire in a cloud), and is presupposed in it inasmuch as the point of the material events is to produce that outcome.
So prior to the proposed demonstration is a demonstration that the definition of the attribute belongs to the subject, because it belongs to whatever has the real definition of the subject.

 Nighttime Visibility of Traffic Signs: Chapter 2 - Night Retroreflectivity Demonstration
The nighttime demonstrations of sign retroreflectivity were conducted to familiarize the workshop participants with the nighttime visual appearance of signs at various levels of retroreflectivity.
By taking part in the demonstration, participants were able to associate the visual appearance of the signs in their respective jurisdictions with the signs used in the nighttime demonstration, some of which were near research recommendations for minimum retroreflectivity levels.
The demonstration was conducted on several former runways and taxiways of the old airfield.

 Demonstration
Demonstration is also useful in a variety of other adult-learning situations such as creating awareness and interest in a new procedure, teaching manipulative skills, or promoting confidence.
Planning a series of demonstrations will allow the skill to be divided into smaller steps and will give more time to the students to practice the skill with supervision and then receive feedback.
After everyone has successfully demonstrated their knowledge and skill in pitching a tent, the "striking" or disassembling and packing is demonstrated and practiced by each person in the group.

 Chemistry Demonstrations
Disclaimer: The demonstrations contained and referenced herein are listed for the purposes of cataloging and describing chemistry demonstrations, and should only be conducted by qualified chemists who are aware of proper chemical and apparatus usage.
Many of the demonstrations have been filmed and are available on CD-rom in the "Chemistry Comes Alive!" series through JCE Software.

 Compost/Mulch Agricultural Demonstration Projects
Numerous growers that participated in the agricultural demonstrations had never used compost, composted mulch or green waste previously and were willing to experiment with these products made primarily from curbside-collected, yard trimmings.
The CIWMB funded thirteen demonstration projects focusing on agricultural or soil erosion issues between 1994 and 2002 to promote use of curbside-collected green material.
The Monterey Bay project demonstrated the value of on-farm composting and increased awareness of the potential benefits of compost use in Monterey, San Benito, and Santa Cruz counties on plots of broccoli, cauliflower, lettuce, onions, potatoes, and beets.

 [No title]
The roadside demonstration was in reaction to evictions of tenants and sharecroppers by local landlords who, by abandoning the share and rental systems of farm production in favor of day labor, were able to pocket government parity payments for crop reductions under the Agricultural Adjustment Act.
The demonstration was intended to draw the attention of the federal government to the plight of tenants and sharecroppers, and Whitfield and STFU leaders immediately began lobbying the Farm Security Administration (FSA) for relief for the demonstrators.
The demonstrators and their representatives rejected the proposal, however, because the croppers and tenants would still be isolated and under the control of landlords.

 A "Demonstration Project" Equals No Medicare Reform
The demonstration project was hobbled by dozens of statutory and regulatory conditions.
Recent demonstrations of the concept were fraught with operational obstacles, fierce industry opposition at the national and local levels, and congressional hostility.
Demonstrations are often portrayed as easier to enact and put into place than national reforms; but the curious feature of a limited Medicare demonstration project, such as that currently being proposed by the House and Senate leadership, is that the reverse often turns out to be true.

 Medicare VA Subvention Demonstration
Enrollment in the DoD demonstration began in August 1998, and we signed a Memorandum of Agreement with the Department of Veterans Affairs on the VA demonstration in May 1999.
The DoD demonstration is limited to coordinated care by statute and, for good reasons, we have limited the proposed VA demonstration to coordinated care.
It also means the demonstration will more likely remain within the spending caps established in the memorandum of agreement, thereby minimizing the likelihood that participation will be curtailed later in the demonstration.

 2005.10.19: HHS Approves Innovative Medicaid Reform Demonstration in Florida
In requesting this historic demonstration program, Florida officials determined that their Medicaid growth rate of 13 percent per annum for the past six years was unsustainable.
Under the Section 1115 demonstration granted today, Florida will calculate an annual amount that it will provide for each enrollee which will be determined by reviewing the enrollee’s “risk” or health status and historic use of health care services.
The demonstration will also establish a fund of $1 billion annually to help the state pay safety-net providers caring for the uninsured.

 Hollister Rand: Touching the Spirit World through psychic demonstrations
At each demonstration, the emphasis is on the spontaneous giving of messages to people in the "audience" from loved ones living in the spirit world.
And although not everyone at the demonstration receives a reading, it has been my experience time and again, that everyone walks away with something - - even possibly a new understanding of what the other side of life is like.
Each demonstration is different because the mix of people at the demonstration (both those seen and unseen) is different every time.

 Demonstration sport - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A demonstration sport is a sport which is played in order to promote itself, most commonly during the Olympic Games, but also at other sporting events.
Demonstration sports were officially introduced in 1912 Summer Olympics, when Sweden decided to include glima, traditional Scandinavian wrestling, in the Olympic program, but with its medals not counting as "official".
Demonstration sports were suspended in 1992, as the Olympic program grew bigger and it became more difficult for the organizing committees to give them the appropriate attention, since the IOC required the same treatment to be dispensed for official and demonstration sports.

The problem involved is the standard one of determining the volume of the intersection of two cylinders.
The demonstration goes on to show how to cut the object up into a stack of squares (shown here with the intersection of the cylinders being only partly transparent).
We review the general principle for computing volumes and, after some work at the flboard and interactive discussion of how to compute the cross-sectional area we need (assuming the cylinders have radius 1 unit), we are able to compute the volume of the object.

 The Singleton Simplex Demonstration
The demonstration was developed to test the concepts that form the Simplex Architecture and to provide a tangible example of those principals in action.
A typical demonstration session includes showing the inverted pendulum under active control, how the active controller (the leader) can be changed either by the user or when failure is detected and how controller software can be modified.
The Legacy Demonstration includes a slightly modified version of the Singleton Demonstration; it was used as the upgrade system.

 Demonstration FAQ~Web-based SOL Technology Initiative
The Demonstration Phase was a specific phase of the SOL Technology Initiative planned by the Department of Education in order to 1) show the viability of delivering online SOL tests in Virginia, and 2) gain a clearer understanding of the technical and assessment issues associated with delivering high stakes tests electronically over the Internet.
Nine high schools served as "demonstration sites" where three selected vendors implemented their test delivery software, trained members of the high schools' faculty and staff, and in the spring of 2001, conducted simulated online SOL tests with the high school students.
As part of the application process to become a demonstration site, participating school and school division network management personnel agreed to work and meet regularly with the Web-based SOL Technology Initiative teams and vendors.
