Dream Dictionary
 Definition: Seeing a hat in your dream means that you are concealing something or covering up something. Alternatively, it may represent the role you play or the responsibilities you have in life. Dreaming that you are wearing a top hat indicates your aspirations for wealth. It is also symbolic of male elegance and formality.
Biology Dictionary
 Definition: A type of agar growth medium (a selective medium) which is used to select for cells that are able to make their nucleic acids out of hypoxanthine and/or thymine. All cells are prevented from making nucleotides by any other means (due to the presence of aminopterin or other drugs in the medium), so cells which are unable to use hypoxanthine and/or thymine to do this will not grow, multiply, and become visible colonies. This leaves the cells which are being selected for.
Easton Bible Dictionary

Chald. karb'ela, (Dan. 3:21), properly mantle or pallium. The Revised Version renders it "tunic."
