Definitions for "INTRODUCTION"
the beginning of an essay. An introduction should introduce the reader to the subject or topic or idea that the rest of the essay develops. Like the conclusion, the introduction could begin with a relevant quote or unusual fact. The introduction in academic writing more often than not includes a statement of the main idea of the essay (the thesis). Introductory paragraphs are usually shorter than developmental paragraphs.
The beginning of an essay, often a single paragraph, that engages the reader?s interest and indicates, usually by stating the thesis, what the essay is about.

A social ceremony invented by the devil for the gratification of his servants and the plaguing of his enemies. The introduction attains its most malevolent development in this century, being, indeed, closely related to our political system. Every American being the equal of every other American, it follows that everybody has the right to know everybody else, which implies the right to introduce without request or permission. The Declaration of Independence should have read thus: "We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights; that among these are life, and the right to make that of another miserable by thrusting upon him an incalculable quantity of acquaintances; liberty, particularly the liberty to introduce persons to one another without first ascertaining if they are not already acquainted as enemies; and the pursuit of another's happiness with a running pack of strangers."
The act of formally making persons known to each other; a presentation or making known of one person to another by name; as, the introduction of one stranger to another.

The purpose of this booklet is to provide information about an inherited type of colon cancer that may be more common among men and women of Ashkenazi Jewish heritage (Jews of Eastern European or Russian ancestry). The information provided is intended to add to, and is not a substitute for, discussions with doctors, genetic counselors, nurses, and other members of the health care team. We encourage you to read the entire booklet in the order in which it was written, since each section is built upon information in preceding sections. We emphasize the need for regularly scheduled, thorough medical examinations for persons who already have had colorectal cancer. Equally important, relatives at risk for this condition need to have regular examinations. For additional information you are encouraged to contact your own personal health care provider or the Hereditary Colorectal Cancer Registry at the Johns Hopkins Hospital, (410) 955-3875 or toll free 1-888-77COLON (772-6566).

The Earth has a magnetic field which emanates from its south magnetic pole, extends out into space and comes back to its north magnetic pole. The north and south magnetic poles are near the north and south celestial poles about which the Earth rotates. This is not true of some other planets. The magnetic field around the Earth is similar to one that would be formed if a bar magnet extended through the center of the Earth with the tips at the north and south magnetic poles. According to accepted theory, Earth's magnetic field arises from electrical currents flowing in the molten metallic core of the planet.

Introduction is a process that allows a company to join a stock exchange without raising capital. A company does not issue any fresh shares; it merely introduces its existing shares in the market.
Method of share issuance requiring only an abridged announcement in the national press, and typically used only when existing shares are widely held, or when seeking a listing on a second stock exchange.
A method of obtaining a listing for shares. Where a company wishes its shares to be listed and it already has a wide range of shareholders such that the marketability of the shares on listing can be assumed, it is permitted to apply for a listing by means of introducing the shares to the market. In other circumstances, when the existing number of shareholders is too small for the marketability of the shares to be assumed, the company will be required to do a share issue to increase the number of shareholders.
