  • Interesting fact: In 1992, Sarah Ophelia Colley Cannon, better known to country music fans as singer/comedienne Minnie Pearl, was awarded a National Medal of Arts by President George Bush. In 1994, Minnie became the first woman to be inducted into the Comedy Hall of Fame. She was too frail and sick to attend the ceremony, and so good friend and comedian George Lindsey ("Goober") accepted the award for her. She died in 1996 at age 83.

In science:

Using induction on the leading degree, we can suppose that we have proved that x ∈ L for all monomial x ∈ A[D ] with deg (x) < α and supp(deg (x)) ⊆ supp(α) (note that {β ∈ J | β < α and supp(β ) ⊆ supp(α)} is a finite set, therefore we can make such an inductive assumption).

This will complete the induction step because then Uniformization in N can be used to find a function f ∈ N with domain p such that f (~sa hti) = f ′ (~s)a ~X where ~X is a witness to t ∈ C~s , and this is exactly what is required in the induction hypothesis.
