Globalization is among the buzz-words within the Nineteen Nineties. It issues to an international within which geographic place turns into more and more inappropriate, a imaginative and prescient that has aroused either hopes and fears. strangely, globalization is followed by means of expanding regionalization. This quantity is a well timed contribution to the controversy on globalization and regionalism.
Via the 12 months 2000, the inhabitants around the globe in danger from volcanic dangers is probably going to extend to approximately part one thousand million. considering the fact that 1980, major advances were made in volcano tracking, info from which offer the only medical foundation for eruption prediction. during this publication, across the world well known experts supply 25 finished articles masking quite a lot of similar issues: tracking recommendations and information research; modelling of tracking info and eruptive pheneomena; volcanic risks and hazard evaluate; and volcanic emergency administration.
The contributions of a various choice of overseas and software program experts are assimilated during this book's exploration of the improvement of vastly parallel processing (MPP). The emphasis is put on business functions and collaboration with clients and providers from in the commercial neighborhood consolidates the scope of the book.

Instead, the intention of the present author is to draw attention to some interesting aspects of his investigations and to show that, despite the apparent diversity of the fields of medical research in which he was involved, his work is characterized by a remarkable unbroken thematic continuity. This is also emphasized in the excellent book by Professor B. Issekutz senior, 2 in which he wrote about the life and work of Jancso and his father, N. Jancso senior, who was a renowned malaria researcher and Director of the Department of Internal Medicine at the Kolozsvar (now Cluj, Rumania) and later on at Szeged University.
S The discoveries coming from these experiments are as follows: (a) Immunization has a significant metabolic effect as measured by serum glucose levels and incorporation into tissues. (b) Both the nervous and endocrine systems are involved (Le. adrenalin and glucocorticoids) in the induction of these metabolic changes. (c) The function ofjl-adrenergic receptors is altered as the consequence of immunization which leads to increased sensitivity to inflammatory mediators such as histamine and serotonin.
