A distinct proposition or Question of Law arising or propounded in a case. In the case of shares of stock, a point means $1. In the case of bonds a point means $10, since a bond is quoted as a percentage of $1,000. In the case of market averages, the word point means merely that and no more. If, for example, the Dow-Jones Industrial Average rises from 8,349.25 to 8,350.25, it has risen a point. A point in this average, however, is not equivalent to $1.

With respect to the home mortgage finance industry, a fee or charge of one percent of the principal of the loan that is collected by the lender at the time the loan is made and is in addition to the constant long-term stated interest rate on the face of the loan.

For smaller muscles of the upper limb, it is difficult, but not impossible, to find the motor points. The technique for upper limb phenol blocks has been well described in literature (3).
Supramaximal stimulus: During each contraction and when the force reached a plateau, a supramaximal stimulus was delivered to the musculocutaneous nerve over the motor point. Two single pulses of magnetic or electrical stimulation were delivered to the biceps muscle while relaxed (resting twitches) 20 sec after the initial three MVCs (Kufel et al., 2002), and between every set of contractions so as they are equally potentiated with the superimposed twitches by the voluntary contractions (Shield and Zhou, 2004; Verges et al., 2009).
