Classical-liberal arguments about the pacifying effects of international trade are revisited, and it is argued that they consistently rely on the ability of trade to provide 'connections' between people and to create a perceived 'global community'. The classical-liberal view on trade and peace can be given natural expression and be further developed if it(More)
The activities of several enzymes involved in the metabolism of aspartate and glutamate were measured in striatal (nucleus caudatus and putamen) homogenates 2-3, 6-7, and 35-40 days following frontoparietal and frontal cortical ablation. The activity of glutamine synthetase (GS) was substantially increased (46-48%) on the operated side 6-7 days following(More)
Cerebrocortical synaptosomes were incubated with glutamine together with 6-diazo-5-oxo-L-norleucine (DON) and NH4Cl (which are known to inhibit phosphate-stimulated glutaminase) in order to assess the effect of such inhibition on the pool sizes and extent of evoked release of endogenous amino acids, particularly glutamate. DON (5 mM) inhibited glutaminase(More)
Radiolabelled glutamine and glucose were infused into lateral ventricles of rats in order to label transmitter amino acid pools in vivo. Brain regions close to the lateral ventricle (hippocampus, corpus striatum, hypothalamus) were labelled more effectively than more distant structures such as cerebral cortex or cerebellum. All regions were labelled to much(More)

Under what conditions arc cffcctivc international rcgimcs for the promotion of human rights likely to emerge? Case studies of European institutions-the European Convention on Human Rights, the European Community and the Conference on Security and Cooperation in Europe-confirm hypotheses more consistent with Iibcral theories of international relations than(More)
To meet the overall isolation and alignment requirements for the optics in Advanced LIGO, the planned upgrade to LIGO, the US laser interferometric gravitational wave observatory, we are developing three subsystems: a hydraulic external pre-isolator for low frequency alignment and control, a two-stage active isolation platform designed to give a factor of(More)
