Excerpt: ... ADDRESS DELIVERED BEFORE THE AMERICAN ACADEMY OF ARTS AND SCIENCES, AT THE OPENING OF THEIR COURSE OP LECTURES, OCTOBER 27,1852. At a meeting of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, June 22, 1852, --Mr. Agassiz, in behalf of the committee appointed to consider the best means of increasing the Academy's publication fund, reported, --that the committee were unanimous in recommending that a course of public lectures of a popular character be given by Fellows of the Academy during the ensuing winter; that the President be requested to commence the course by an Address setting forth the objects and aim of the course; and that each section of the Academy appoint one of its number to deliver one lecture upon some special subject belonging to, and prominent in, the section's sphere of research. It has been a serious question whether, amid the general sadness which hangs as a cloud over our city, which has seemed to check the ordinary current of affairs, and to darken the very atmosphere of social intercourse, the prearranged exercises of this place should not be suspended in solemn and silent respect to the unusual occasion. But we are bound by circumstances to perform that which at this time we would not have wished to do. And leaving to the public voice the expression of that general emotion, to which no limited occasion can afford utterance, we shall proceed in the attempt to execute the more humble duty that has been set before us. I am instructed, ' in behalf of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, to report to you this evening on the character and condition of that institution, and the objects of the present course of lectures. If it were possible that a society which has existed in your midst for two or three generations, and which from time to ti...

Naturopathy is a system of therapy and treatment which relies exclusively on natural remedies, such as sunlight, air, water, supplemented with diet and therapies such as massage. Naturopathy is based on the belief that the body is self-healing. The body will repair itself and recover from illness spontaneously if it is in a healthy environment. Naturopathy, sometimes referred to as "natural medicine," is a largely pseudoscientific approach said to "assist nature", "support the body's own innate capacity to achieve optimal health", and "facilitate the body's inherent healing mechanisms." Naturopaths assert that diseases are the body's effort to purify itself, and that cures result from increasing the patient's "vital force." They claim to stimulate the body's natural healing processes by ridding it of waste products and "toxins." This book has been structured for quick and handy references for every family and provides naturopathic cures for nearly all-common diseases, both acute and chronic, such as Constipation, Piles, Diabetes, Hernia, Asthma, Diabetes, Anemia, Blood pressure etc. It also contains a concise introduction to the basis of naturopathic system.

CHAPTER, I MAL-CO-ORDINATION AND DISEASE Introduction IN the epilogue

Author: J. E. R. McDonagh
The Nature of Disease, Part III deals with mal-coordination and disease, disease and the nervous systems, and chronic intestinal intoxication. This book discusses the signs and symptoms of disease which is the result of the body's failure to resist infection. The author sees that dehydration is the prevailing abnormal chemico-physical change in the acute stage of disease attack; hydration in the chronic stage. He notes that these two phenomena occur when protein particles in the plasma in disease undergo either a dehydration or hydration process. The author also reviews F.M. Alexander's work on the conscious control of the individual, through psycho-physical mechanism, as a whole body, instead of being reflected in certain anatomical part such as the kidneys, liver, or skin. The author examines the interrelationships between mal-coordination and the nervous system. Such mal-coordination results in chronic intestinal intoxication on nervous manifestations; the author then demonstrates how nerve tissues are damaged by abnormal protein particles in the plasma. The author cites several cases of mal-coordination concerning the nervous system, the vegetative nervous system and the alimentary tract, as well as the role played by a chronic intestinal intoxication in the invasion of the nervous system by micro-organisms. This book can prove informative for cellular biologists, researchers in micro-chemistry or neuro-biology, and doctors in general practice.

This new collection focuses on the impact of sprawl on biodiversity and the measures that can be taken to alleviate it. Leading biological and social scientists, conservationists, and land-use professionals examine how sprawl affects species and alters natural communities, ecosystems, and natural processes. The contributors integrate biodiversity issues, concerns, and needs into the growing number of anti-sprawl initiatives, including the "smart growth" and "new urbanist" movements.

Significant zoonotic diseases have appeared with increasing frequency in recent years. At a symposium held in Galveston, Texas, in March 2004, many outstanding virologists and others presented papers under the broad theme of "emergence". The intent was to elucidate the diseases themselves, the mechanisms by which they have emerged, the publication perception and response to the diseases, and the possibility of prevention or prediction. The papers in this book summarize the talks of this meeting. Among the many timely papers are those by Nobel Prize winner Peter Doherty, influenza epidemiologists Robert Webster and Jeffery Taubenberger, and important contributions by Neal Nathanson, Esteban Domingo, Barry Beaty, David Walker, James Hughes, and others of world expertise.
