The strong Coulomb force or intermolecular attraction between water molecules in water drops due to the polarity of hydrogen’s tetrahedral configuration, is an excellent example of cohesion between like molecules. When refering to unlike molecules the term is adhesion.
Thank you wiki for the info and Melanie for the rose.

The resolution of this PowerPoint slide is set at W:1440 pixels x H:900 pixels which is the slowest speed and highest fidelity that the author can set under the Slide Show settings >> Set Up Show >> Slide Show Resolution. The background image of the PowerPoint program screen was frozen in Adobe Photoshop and saved as a .jpg at a resolution of 300 dpi (pixels per inch), 3.71 M, and a Document size of W12.19 cm x H7.62 cm.
Since I am experimenting with free open source material I cannot purchase their user-pay products but I can certainly recommend the minimalist, elegant and functional design of their visualizations and recommend that those who can investigate both MindMap and Visual Thesaurus as technologies.

WordPress.com’s semantic tools such as categories, tags, urls for individual posts, author’s name generated automatically to each post, dates per post, seem to mimic the function of metatags and are Search Engine friendly. As well, when my delicious tags and wordpress.com’s tags and categories are syncronized, I think this performs a similar role of structuring as metatagging. To make it even more elegant, del.icio.us offers suggestions for popular tags used by other del.icio.us users on posts and sites that have already been entered into their database. For example, del.cio.us suggests these tags for Alex Iskold’s useful post on structuring the Internet through metatagging: Blog, blogging, code, CSS, Design, development, findability, folksonomy, howto, HTML, marketing, metadata, readwriteweb, semantic, semantic_web, semantics, semanticweb, tag, tags, tips, trends, visualization, web, web3.0, webdesign, XHTML, markup, Internet, microformats.
After reviewing the ReadWriteWeb article on structuring the Internet, I looked up the New York Times metatags offered as a best practice model by ReadWriteWeb and attempted to adapt them to my own Speechless blog. WordPress quickly eliminated my outlaw codes leaving no trace.
WordPress did not support my adaptation of the New York Times metatags: when written under ‘Code’ . They are deleted. Under ‘Visual’ this is what they looked like before deletion: more.
Aside: While noting the New York Times metatags, I was also drawn to a comparison of New York Times’ Categories 2008-02:
World, U.S., N.Y. / Region, Business, Technology, Science, Health, Sports, Opinion, Arts, Style, Travel, Jobs, Real Estate, Automobile.
I would like to compare these to the default categories offered by Digg and other major actors in Web 2.0 blogosphere.
