Go reap the plenty of your plains;
Despoiled of all which you revere,
I know my Flavia's love sincere.

That she would not come back again,
Unbound their curls; and all in tears,
They cut them off with sharpened shears.

Till every breath and pant
Mirrors and paints itself against the clouds,

In science:
If we correct our measurements using a second order polynomial in the difference between measured and true shear, as found by Heymans et al. (2006), we ﬁnd that most cluster masses stay within +/ − 15% of the mass calculated from uncorrected shear values.
The Cluster Mass Function from Weak Gravitational Lensing
The galaxy shape distortions caused by gravitational lensing provides a measurement of the reduced tangential shear, gT = γT /(1 − κ), where γT is the tangential component of the shear and κ is the convergence.
The Cluster Mass Function from Weak Gravitational Lensing
This is determined by opposite temperature behavior of the bulk and shear viscosities that the bulk viscosity increases while the shear decreases with growing temperature.
Bulk viscosity in nuclear and quark matter: A short review
Note that this ﬁeld is also the average ﬁeld in the shearing sheet box, and is conserved during the evolution thanks to the shearing sheet boundary conditions (Hawley et al. 1995).
Impact of dimensionless numbers on the efficiency of MRI-induced turbulent transport
Statistical averages are computed over 500 shear times, and start after the ﬁrst 100 shear times to avoid pollution by relaxation of the initial transient dynamics.
Impact of dimensionless numbers on the efficiency of MRI-induced turbulent transport
By generalizing the structures (shear-free null geodesic congruences) associated with the algebraically special metrics to asymptotically shear-free null geodesic congruences, which are available in all asymptotically ﬂat space-times, we give kinematic meaning to the Bondi four-momentum.
On Extracting Physical Content from Asymptotically Flat Space-Time Metrics
Our second and third identiﬁcation models are based on complex curves, in the second model these curves are associated with ﬂat-space shear-free null geodesic congruences while in the third model they are associated with the asymptotically shear-free null geodesic congruences of the relevant space-time.
On Extracting Physical Content from Asymptotically Flat Space-Time Metrics
Our generalization consisted in observing that the existence of a shear-free nul l geodesic congruence could be generalized to the existence of an asymptotical ly shear-free nul l geodesic congruence.

Forming Planetesimals in Solar and Extrasolar Nebulae
There are two viscosities, ν1 and ν2 , where ν1 corresponds to the azimuthal shear, the standard shear viscosity in a ﬂat disc, and ν2 is the viscosity associated with vertical shear motions, which smoothes out the warping.
Reprocessed emission from warped accretion discs induced by the Bardeen-Petterson effect
In particular, what may be the effective azimuthal velocity proﬁle of high Re and low Pm disks (or their sections)? As Ebrahimi et al. (2009) recently note, quasi-linear saturation of the shear proﬁle might be an unreasonable expectation given that the strong gravity tends to restore the shear proﬁle within disks (cf.
