  Negative Poisson's ratio
Foams with negative Poisson's ratios were produced from conventional low density open-cell polymer foams by causing the ribs of each cell to permanently protrude inward, resulting in a re-entrant structure.
Values of J toughness of negative Poisson's ratio open cell copper foams are enhanced by 80%, 130%, and 160% for permanent volumetric compression ratio of 2.0, 2.5, and 3.0, respectively, compared to the J value of the conventional foam (with a positive Poisson's ratio).
Negative Poisson's ratio cushions may be beneficial in the prevention of pressure sores or ulcers in the sick and in reduction of pressure-induced discomfort in seated people.

 Negative campaigning - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Negative campaigning is trying to win an election by attacking an opponent rather than emphasizing one's own positive attributes or policies.
Negative campaigning is often viewed as being most common in American elections, but such tactics are also present in Canada, Europe and many other democracies.
A demonstrated effect of negative campaigning is that while it motivates the base of support it tends to alienate centrist and undecided voters from the political process reducing voter turnout and radicalizing politics.

 § 23. double negative. 1. Grammar. The American Heritage Book of English Usage. 1996   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
In these expressions the double negative conveys a weaker affirmative than would be conveyed by the positive adjective or adverb by itself.
In fact, multiple negatives have been used to convey negative meaning in English since the tenth century, and throughout most of this history, this form of the double negative was wholly acceptable.
The ban on using double negatives to convey emphasis does not apply when the second negative appears in a separate phrase or clause, as in I will not surrender, not today, not ever or He does not seek money, no more than he seeks fame.

 Negative Energy, Wormholes and Warp Drive   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
But when negative energy or mass–so-called exotic matter–bends space-time, all sorts of amazing phenomena might become possible: traversable wormholes, which could act as tunnels to otherwise distant parts of the universe; warp drive, which would allow for faster-than-light travel; and time machines, which might permit journeys into the past.
Negative energy is so strange that one might think it must violate some law of physics.
The permissible magnitude of the negative energy is inversely related to its temporal or spatial extent.

 MathSteps: Grade 6: Negative Numbers: What Is It?
The rules for operations with negative numbers may seem arbitrary and mysterious – but they are not as arbitrary as they seem.
When subtracting with negative numbers on a number line, the subtraction sign means to go in the opposite direction of the directed distance that follows.
Thus, when the dividend and divisor are either both positive or both negative, the quotient is positive, and when one is positive and the other negative, the quotient is negative.

 Mitigated Negative Declarations
The initial study circulated with a mitigated Negative Declaration should not indicate that there will be any significant effects of the project and should identify or reference the data which supports its determination that any potentially significant effects have been mitigated or avoided.
A mitigated Negative Declaration applies when changes to the project or other mitigation measures are imposed which such that all potentially significant effects are avoided or reduced to a level of insignificance.
Revisions in the project plans or proposals made by, or agreed to by, the applicant before the proposed negative declaration and initial study are released for public review would avoid the effects or mitigate the effects to a point where clearly no significant effect on the environment would occur.

 Negative Calorie Foods: Are they for real?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Surprisingly, in the case of the negative calorie foods in question not only do they contain sufficient vitamins and minerals to break down the host calories there is actually a surplus of these enzyme producing biochemicals.
In light of the fact that these subjects were 40 years and older (with relatively slowed metabolisms) and the research performed involved no prescribed exercise program, this constitutes a dramatic weight loss that could only be attributed to the consumption of various fruits and vegetables.
The greater value then, in identifying and ingesting these negative calorie foods is not in their ability to break down other existing calories in digestion at all.

 The reality of negative refraction (May 2003) - Physics World - PhysicsWeb
To make sure that the observed beam was due to the inherent negative index of the wedge - as opposed to an artefact associated with the sample being lossy or diffractive - the team used two different wedge samples so that waves would be incident on the metamaterial at two different angles.
Both cases exhibited negative refraction at angles that were consistent with the sample having a well defined negative index - confirmation of Snell's law for a negative refractive index.
As in the MIT experiment, the negatively refracted beam does not decay as a function of distance in any anomalous manner, even when it was measured as far as 28 wavelengths - about 66 cm - from the sample.

 A List Apart: Articles: Creating Liquid Layouts with Negative Margins
Negative margins allow us to push the content area away from the sides of the browser, leaving room for the sidebar.
The negative right margin has more to do with allowing the sidebar to float up into this element’s space than it does with any positioning/appearance of the element itself, as can be seen in Example 2 below.
As you can see, negative margins are an under-utilized aspect of CSS that add another layout option for those who want to control the order of elements in the source code and who don’t mind adding a non-semantic wrapper div to do so.

Okay, so the term "negative calorie" food is the first wrong statement of this page, because all food contains calories, however, how the body processes these foods is where we get the negative calorie statement from.

Remember, negative calorie foods are discussed in their natural state, if you cook, add butter, and other things to them it changes the caloric makeup of the food.

It is very important that we float this element, as margins (and thus, negative margins) are handled differently for floated and inline elements than they are for non-floated block-level elements.

 Negative Numbers Review - I
If you are adding a negative, this is pretty much the same as subtracting a positive, if you view "adding a negative" as adding to the left.
You know now that the answer will be negative, because you're subtracting a bigger number than you started with (nine is bigger than five).
Adding two negative numbers is easy: you're just adding two "negative" arrows, so it's just the backwards of "regular" addition.

When home prices are appreciating rapidly, egative amortization is less of a possibility than when prices are stable or dropping, particularly for the borrower who made a small cash down payment to begin with.
Adjustable rate mortgages with payment caps and negative amortization are usually reamortized at some point so that the remaining loan balance can be fully paid off during the term of the loan.
ARMs that don't have payment caps usually don't have negative mortization.

For us, the individualities disappear and are noteworthy only as those who realise the will of the popular spirit.' The blithely decreed disappearance of individualities - a negative which philosophy presumes to know as positive without any real change having occurred in it - is the equivalent of the continuing break.
But its positivity itself is negative, and the more negative its bearing, the more positive it will be; unity gets worse as its seizure of plurality becomes more thorough.
