In literature:

The physical changes and conditions are responsible not only for the peach crop, but the nut crop as well.
"Northern Nut Growers Association Report of the Proceedings at the" by Various
Pretty good for a man now 86 who began nut growing less than ten years ago and who has serious physical handicaps.
"Northern Nut Growers Association Thirty-Fourth Annual Report 1943" by Various

In news:

From mental to physical to emotional health, research shows being a crazy sports nut makes you anything but crazy.

In science:

Visinescu, ”Symmetries and motion in spinning Taub-NUT space” to be published in the Proceedings of the XVIII International Workshop on High Energy Physics and Field Theory, Protvino, Russia (1995).
Generalized Killing equations and Taub-NUT spinning space
It is non– linear being expressed in terms of ǫ, and physically corresponds to mixing of a mass and a NUT charge (gravitational analog of electric–magnetic duality).
Square of General Relativity
Norval Fortson and Warren Nagourney, for showing me both the broad stokes, and nuts and bolts of atomic experimental physics.
Single barium ion spectroscopy: light shifts, hyperfine structure, and progress on an optical frequency standard and atomic parity violation
One can show that the parity-odd quantity in Eq. (89), is also non-vanishing for the Kerr-Newman and Kerr-NUT spacetimes [81,35], but it is is satisfied in certain interesting physical limits, namely a → 0 (the Schwarzschild limit) and M → 0 (the pp-wave limit).
Chern-Simons Modified General Relativity
Classical thought would analyse an object like a motorbike into its physical components; nuts bolts etc. but you can also analyse the motor bike into its functional parts: heat exchanger, generator, exhaust system etc.
