Sizing

Sizing or size is any one of numerous substances, applied to, or incorporated into, other materials—especially papers and textiles—to act as a protective filler or glaze. Sizing is used in papermaking and textile manufacturing to change the absorption and wear characteristics of those materials. Sizing is used for oil-based surface preparation for gilding, it is used by artists to prepare paper and textile surfaces for some art techniques. Sizing is used during paper manufacture to reduce the paper's tendency when dry to absorb liquid, with the goal of allowing inks and paints to remain on the surface of the paper and to dry there, rather than be absorbed into the paper; this provides a more consistent and precise printing and writing surface. This is achieved by curbing the paper fibers' tendency to absorb liquids by capillary action. In addition, sizing affects abrasiveness, finish, printability and surface bond strength and decreases surface porosity and fuzzing. There are three categories of papers with respect to sizing: unsized, weak sized, strong sized.

Waterleaf includes absorbent papers for blotting. Slack sized paper is somewhat absorbent and includes newsprint, while hard sized papers have the highest water resistance, such as coated fine papers and liquid packaging board. There are two types of sizing: internal sizing, sometimes called engine sizing, surface sizing. Internal sizing is applied to all papers and to all those that are machine made, while surface sizing is added for the highest grade bond and writing papers. Surface sizing solutions consist of modified starches and sometimes other hydrocolloids, such as gelatine, or surface sizing agents such as acrylic co-polymers. Surface sizing agents are amphiphilic molecules, having both hydrophobic ends; the sizing agent adheres to substrate fibers and forms a film, with the hydrophilic tail facing the fiber and the hydrophobic tail facing outwards, resulting in a smooth finish that tends to be water-repellent. Sizing improves the surface strength and water resistance of the paper or material to which it is applied.

In the sizing solution, optical brightening agents may be added to improve the opacity and whiteness of the paper or material surface. Internal sizing chemicals used in papermaking at the wet end are alkyl succinic anhydride, alkyl ketene dimer and rosin. By making the paper web more hydrophobic, the sizing agents influence dewatering and retention of fillers and fibers in the paper sheet. Next to paper quality, internal sizing agents' main effect is on runability of the paper machine. While sizing is intended to make paper more suitable for printing, it makes printing paper less durable and poses a problem for preservation of printed documents. Sizing with starch was introduced quite early in the history of papermaking. Dard Hunter in Papermaking through Eighteen Centuries corroborates this by writing, "The Chinese used starch as a size for paper as early as A. D. 768 and its use continued until the fourteenth century when animal glue was substituted." In the early modern paper mills in Europe, which produced paper for printing and other uses, the sizing agent of choice was gelatin, as Susan Swartzburg writes in Preserving Library Materials': "Various substances have been used for sizing through the ages, from gypsum to animal gelatin."

Hunter describes the process of sizing in these paper mills in the following: The drying completed, the old papermakers dipped their paper into an animal size, made from the parings of hides, which they procured from the parchment-makers. It was necessary to size that paper so that it would be impervious to ink, but sizing was more needed in writing than in printing papers. Many books of the fifteenth century were printed upon paper that had not been sized, this extra treatment not being essential for a type impression; the sizing was accomplished by a worker holding a number of sheets by the aid of two wooden sticks, dipping the paper into the warm gelatinous liquid. The sheets were pressed to extract the superfluous gelatine; this crude method of sizing the paper was wasteful as many sheets were torn and bruised beyond use. The sizing room of the early paper mills, for this reason, known as the'slaughter-house'. With the advent of the mass production of paper, the type of size used for paper production changed.

As Swartzburg writes, "By 1850 rosin size had come into use. It produces a chemical action that hastens the decomposition of the finest papers." In the field of library preservation it is known "that acid hydrolysis of cellulose and related carbo-hydrates is one of the key factors responsible for the degradation of paper during ageing." Some professional work has focused on the specific processes involved in the degradation of rosin-sized paper, in addition to work on developing permanent paper and sizing agents that will not destroy the paper. An issue on the periphery to the preservation of paper and sizing, is washing, described by V. Daniels and J. Kosek as, "The removal of discolouration... in water is principally effected by the dissolution of water-soluble material. In such a process, surface level items applied to the paper, such as size in early paper making processes as seen above, have the possibility of being removed from the paper, which might have some item specific interest in a special collections library.

With processes in paper making being more akin to "engine sizing," as H

Robert Minton (cricketer)

Robert Samuel Minton was an English cricketer. Minton's batting style is unknown, he was born at Kensington and was educated at Brighton College. Minton made a single first-class appearance for Sussex against Northamptonshire at the County Ground, Northampton, in the 1919 County Championship. Northamptonshire won the toss and elected to bat first, posting a total of 410. In reply, Sussex could only manage 125, with Minton making 24 runs before he was dismissed by Albert Wright, his score was the second highest individual score in Sussex's innings. Forced to follow-on, Sussex improved in their second-innings to make 365, though Minton himself was dismissed without scoring by William Wells. Northamptonshire went on to win the match by 8 wickets, in what was Minton's only major appearance for Sussex, he committed suicide near Three Bridges in Sussex on 3 August 1928, having thrown himself from the first-class compartment of a train on the Brighton main line. He had up to that point been employed as a police constable.

Mike Teti

Michael Francis Teti is an American Olympic rower. Born in Upper Darby, Pennsylvania, he attended Monsignor Bonner High School and is a 1978 graduate of St. Joseph's University; the head coach of men's crew at the University of California, Berkeley, he is a twelve-time U. S. national team member, three-time Olympian, a member of the world champion men's eight in 1987, is a member of the U. S. National Rowing Hall of Fame as both an athlete and coach, he has served as the US Men's head coach since June 2018. Mike Teti's coaching experience includes positions at Temple University, coach of the freshman squad at Princeton University, the U. S. national team, U. S. Men's Olympic teams. Teti served as US Rowing's men's head coach from 1997-2008; the U. S. national team crews produced 28 total medals under Teti's guidance during that time period, including four gold medals. He is the only coach to lead U. S. teams to three consecutive world championship title. Mike Teti has served as both an athlete and coach for U.

S. men's Olympic rowing teams. As a coach, he led the U. S. team to 29 world and Olympic medals, including Olympic gold in 2004 in Athens. Teti was the head coach of Men's Rowing at the University of California from 2008 to 2018. In 2018, he was named head men's coach for USRowing, returning to a position he held from 1997 to 2008, he is the only person inducted into the U. S. National Rowing Hall of Fame as both an athlete and coach. In 2016, a female former member of the Cal rowing team accused Teti of failing to act after she accused a male rower of sexual assault; the woman alleged that instead of launching an investigation and reporting the allegation to university officials, Teti told her to “stop crying,” asked her about her sexual history with other rowers and barked, “You’re no angel anyway.” Following the allegations, UC Berkeley complaint resolution officer Paula Raffaelli said the men's crew coaches and athletes would receive additional training related to sexual violence and harassment, “with a specific emphasis on gender and sex stereotyping.”

Another female former Cal rower, Stephanie Gardner, said she quit Teti's team in 2012 because of relentless bullying by males on the team, a culture of abuse that went on with full knowledge of the coaching staff. In 2018, Teti stepped down as coach at Cal; the University of California, announced in March 2019 that it was investigating the admission in 2014 of a student whose father was indicted on charges of paying $100,000 to have a surrogate ace the SATs on behalf of his son, according to a federal indictment. That student, Jordan Sidoo, is listed on Cal's website as having been a member of Teti's team in 2014; the San Francisco Chronicle said there were no allegations that Teti or other coaches accepted bribes to allow Sidoo on the team, although similar allegations were made against coaches at other universities. 1979 Pan American Games / Men's Four / Silver Medal – USRowing as Athlete 1985 World Championships / Men's Eight / Bronze Medal – USRowing as Athlete 1987 World Championships / Men's Eight / Gold Medal – USRowing as Athlete 1988 Olympic Games / Seoul, Korea / Men's Eight / Bronze Medal – Olympic Rowing as Athlete 1996 Olympic Games / Atlanta / Men's Four Lighweight Coach / Bronze Medal – U.
