This is the proceedings of the fourth in a series of inter national gatherings on kindling held on the University of British Columbia campus, June 15-17, 1989. Since the last gath ering in 1985, kindling continues to attract an ever-increasing number of investigators as reflected by the phenomenal increase in the number of kindling-related research reports. No other acute or chronic model has been exploited so extensively using electrophysiological, pharmacological, biochemical and behav ioural approaches involving a variety of brain sites and ani mal species. The continuing search, during the past few years, for the mechanism underlying the enduring change induced by kindling is beginning to shed some light on aspects of its molecular basis and to suggest the future direction of research. The late Graham Goddard, the original kindler, would have been delighted with this development. We were all shocked and saddened by his tragic death, but his spirit is very much alive among all of us who gathered together to share new information and collectively reassess the present state of knowledge at this symposium. I must say that we miss him very, very much. We know he is happy in his heaven knowing that he accomplished more in a short lifetime than most and that his love for mankind, and lifes challenges, remain as a legacy, and goal, for us all.
Bad Astronomy: Misconceptions and Misuses Revealed, from Astrology to the Moon Landing "Hoax"(Wiley Bad Science Series)
Dr. Plait created his popular web site: www.badastronomy.com, to debunk bad astronomy in popular culture. This website proved popular, which led to this first book by Plait, that carries on from the website and in a detailed and clear fashion criticises and disproves popular myths and misconceptions relating to astronomy, and promotes science as a means of explaining the skies. The work describes 24 common astronomical fallacies, including the beliefs that the Coriolis effect determines the direction that water drains in a bathtub, and that planetary alignments can cause disaster on Earth. The author sharply and convincingly dismisses astrology, creationism, and UFO sightings, and explains the principles behind basic general concepts (the Big Bang, why the sky is blue, etc.).

This work is divided into seven chapters: The Life of Saint Francis de Sales The Secret of Sanctity The Writer Doctrine Preaching Correspondence and Direction Direction of Saint Jane Frances de Chantal-Foundress of the Visitation The revival of Paganism in social manners, as well as in literature and sentiment, is the most flagrant characteristic of the great century to the latter half of which Francis of Sales belonged. But, by redeeming contrast, it was no less a century prolific in Catholic sanctity, in great foundations, in noble deeds, the period of a Christian Renascence, of the Churchs conquests and triumphs, as well as of her disasters and losses. In the midst of the corrupt splendours of the Pagan Renascence the light of purity and justice shone with undimmed brilliance. Let us consider the secret of sanctity: The biographical study of such a life is incomplete without the psychological study. The first gives an idea of effects, some inkling of their cause; the second, full knowledge of that cause; the two in combination, the life as it was. The moral beauty of our study ought to make it an attractive one, and the practical lesson it contains ought to make it instructive. But more than this, I will frankly add that I think men, whose minds are not distorted by prejudice and who can appreciate in others a nobility they are not themselves devoid of, starting with nothing more than belief in Gods existence, will have to acknowledge that such a life peremptorily demonstrates the divinity of the Christian religion, I mean in its unmutilated Catholic fulness. The interior life, its conduct, are distinctive features of Christian morality. And should we be asked what this life is, we would say first that it is not the solitary, not the contemplative life. Indeed, our Saint tells us that, necessary in the cloister where everything tends to assist recollection, it is of still greater necessity in the world where everything tends to dissipation. The interior life consists mainly in two things the intention, i.e. the direction of the will towards a fixed object, that object being in fact the goal the life proposes to itself as final-the affections, in other words, the sentiments on which the heart feeds and which leave their mark on the actions they prompt. Let us consider this observation on De Sales preaching: MONSIEUR DE BOISYS reproach to his son that he preached too much will not be forgotten; and Francis, both as a priest and a bishop, certainly was lavishly generous with his sermons. On the ministry of the Word he set the very highest value; and there is abundant proof that many souls owed their conversion and sanctification to his sermons. His glorious work in the Chablais was, it will be remembered, an apostolate of the voice, for when he wrote and circulated his tracts, it was only as the best possible means, in the face of determined resistance, of inducing the people to come and hear what he had to say.
This volume, the sixth of the series, represents the natural counterpart of the previous volume, Ultra structure of the Digestive Tract. Unlike the latter, however, whose contents fell entirely within the domains of gastroenterology, Ultrastructure of the Extraparietal Glands of the Digestive Tract encom passes a few cognate sciences, such as hepatology, pancreatology, and even oral biology, which are usually dealt with separately. This allows, starting from cell biology, embryology, and comparative anatomy, a comprehensive survey of organs that have much in common both structurally and functionally. The chapters of this book have been compiled by well-known experts in the field with the aim not only of reviewing and pointing out the state of the art of the subject covered, but also of giving directions for future work. Furthermore, through the integration of electron microscopy with immunocytochemistry, autoradiography, freeze fracture, maceration, enzymatic digestion, etc., and by providing superb illus trative material, the authors substantiate the pivotal role played by modern morphology in under standing human physiology and pathology. In fact, it must be stressed, that a consistent part of the tissues studied here are from human origin. We believe that this volume should be read, not only by scientists and teachers active in the field, but also by a larger audience of students and professionals interested in knowing the scientific foundations of biomedicine.
Songs of Seoul is an ethnographic study of voice in South Korea, where the performance of Western opera, art songs, and choral music is an overwhelmingly Evangelical Christian enterprise. Drawing on fieldwork in churches, concert halls, and schools of music, Harkness argues that the European-style classical voice has become a specifically Christian emblem of South Korean prosperity. By cultivating certain qualities of voice and suppressing others, Korean Christians strive to personally embody the social transformations promised by their religion: from superstition to enlightenment; from dictatorship to democracy; from sickness to health; from poverty to wealth; from dirtiness to cleanliness; from sadness to joy; from suffering to grace. Tackling the problematic of voice in anthropology and across a number of disciplines, Songs of Seoul develops an innovative semiotic approach to connecting the materiality of body and sound, the social life of speech and song, and the cultural voicing of perspective and personhood.
