Lightbulb Moonlighting

Moonlighting is an American television series that aired on ABC from March 3, 1985, to May 14, 1989. The network aired a total of 66 episodes (67 in syndication as the pilot is split into 2 episodes)..The series revolved around cases investigated by the Blue Moon Detective Agency and its 2 partners, Madelyn "Maddie" (Shepherd) and David Jr. (Willis)...Moonlighting is set in the early 1980s at the time of the Solidarity protests in Poland..The Dixie Mafia is a criminal organization based in Biloxi, Mississippi, and operated primarily in the Southern United States, in the 1970s..In mathematics, monstrous moonshine, or moonshine theory, is a term used to describe the unexpected connection between the monster group M and Modular functions, in particular, the j function...
Protein moonlighting (or gene sharing) is a phenomenon by which a protein can perform more than one function.. Ancestral moonlighting proteins originally possessed a single function but through evolution, acquired additional functions.. Many proteins that moonlight are enzymes; others are receptors, ion channels or chaperones..Protein moonlighting through gene sharing differs from the use of a single gene to generate different proteins by alternative RNA splicing, DNA rearrangement, or post-translational processing..Moonshine, white lightning, mountain dew, hooch, and Tennessee white whiskey are terms used to describe high-proof distilled SPIRITS..A common folk test for the quality of moonshine was to pour a small quantity of it into a spoon and set it on fire. The theory was that a safe distillate burns with a blue flame, but a tainted distillate burns with a yellow flame... the first part of the journey I was looking at all the life..There were plants and birds and rocks and things..There was sand and hills and rings..The first thing I met was a fly with a buzz..And the sky with no clouds..The heat was hot and the ground was dry..But the air was full of sound...
