Catholic Common Ground originated in the concern that the tendency to unnecessarily polarize
differences among Catholic leaders and members hinders the efforts to strengthen the faith community and to carry out the mission of the church.
But in terms of how language polarizes
and your example of the dean's comment, I want to answer that in a second way.
By mixing these two types, the fish's skin doesn't polarize
the reflected light and maintains its high reflectivity.
First, circularly polarized laser light polarizes rubidium atoms in the D1 resonance at a wavelength of 795 nm.
They can also polarize
large diameter beams and are effective over a broader wavelength spectrum than can be accommodated by supermirrors.
When waves are scattered along multiple pathways, fields do polarize
along the direction of travel.
