              Towards the end of his life, Cicero turned away from his oratorical and political career and looked instead to matters of philosophy and religion. The dialogue The Nature of the Gods both explores his own views on these subjects, as a monotheist and member of the Academic School,... and considers the opinion of other philosophical schools of the Hellenistic age through the figures of Velleius the Epicurean and Balbus the Stoic. Eloquent, clearly argued and surprisingly modern, it focuses upon a series of fundamental religious questions including: is there a God? If so, does he answer prayers, or intervene in human affairs? Does he know the future? Does morality need the support of religion? Profoundly influential on later thinkers, such as Saint Augustine and Thomas Aquinas, this is a fascinating consideration of fundamental issues of faith and philosophical thought.

              Adrenergic Mechanisms in Myocardial Ischemia
                

              Adrenergic Mechanisms in Myocardial Ischemia (Trade Paperback / Paperback, Softcover reprint of the original 1st ed. 1991)

              Stress-induced myocardial ischemia is a frequent manifestation of coronary heart disease, and sympathetic activation is an important precipitating and aggravating factor in such stress- induced ischemia. However, the complex interplay between the sympathetic initiation of myocard...ial ischemia, ischemia-induced alterations in sympathetic neurotransmission, as well as changes in adrenoceptor density and post-receptor signal transduction that can occur during ischemia remains incompletely understood. Not only the activation of myocardial fJ- adrenoceptors, but also the activation of coronary IX-adrenoceptors can contribute to myocar- dial ischemia. However, the role of fJ-adrenoceptor-mediated increases in contractility relative to heart rate in the initiation of ischemia is not clear, and the significance of IX-adrenoceptor- mediated changes in coronary vasomotor tone, as well as the responsible IX-adrenoceptor subtypes are highly controversial. Malignant arrhythmias may be triggered by both IX- and fJ-adrenergic mechanisms. Current research in this field is focussed not only on the underlying physiological and pathophysiological mechanisms, but also on clinical treatment strategies, e. g. , by fJ-blockade, IX-blockade, bradycardic agents and calcium antagonists. Recent findings were presented and future research directions discussed during the 61 International Titisee Conference, held at the Schwarzwald-Hotel, Titisee, March 29-31, 1990 under the sponsorship of the Boehringer Ingelheim Foundation. Dr. Hasso Schroeder and Dr. Hermann Frohlich deserve special thanks for their generous support and pleasant organization of the meeting. The publication of the proceedings has been made possible by grants from Astra Chemicals, Bayer, ICI, Dr. Karl Thomae, and Upjohn.

              Vocabulary is becoming increasingly important for the ASVAB test, and it helps to devote sufficient time to it, as it takes a long time to build an effective vocabulary. This book contains over 500 Essential Vocabulary words that appear frequently in the test, and uses some of th...e following techniques to help you remember these words faster and better! - Word Roots; Since many English words are derived from Greek & Latin roots, it makes sense to be aware of these. Knowing a single root can help you know a whole group of words! - Prefixes/Suffixes;Pay attention to the tone of the words, whether soft or hard, harsh or mild, negative or positive. This could help you guess when in doubt. Prefixes/Suffixes can often help you with identifying the meaning of a word, when in doubt. - Usage of the Word; Perhaps the Best way to increase your vocabulary is to read and practice. There is absolutely no substitute for that! Reading helps you learn new words from the context in which they are used, thereby making it easy to remember the new words and more importantly, how and when they are used. This book provides you with multiple examples of how a word is used in different contexts. With over 1000 practice exercises, you will get more than enough practice for the test! - Synonyms/AntonymsBeing familiar with related words, increases the number and variety of your mental associations. This helps you retain the meaning of the word more easily. - Related WordsIn order to 'deeply' understand the meaning of a word, it is helpful to study related words at the same time. e.g. The word plenty connotes sufficient for what is needed while abundance means more than what is needed . - PronunciationsEach word has a pronunciation key that helps you say the word out correctly, thereby aiding retention. - Practice makes perfect!Finally, this book has over a thousand exercises to make sure that you remember the meanings of the newly learnt words 'forever'! Many ingenious methods, scientifically c
