Kindling self-determination among the Kuna

, : Kindling self-determination among the Kuna. Cultural Survival Quarterly 6(3): 15-17

The San Blas Kuna are a prosperous indigenous population living in a reserve in Panama which is popular with tourists, most of whom arrive by light plane or cruise ships for short stays. The Kuna are concerned about outside commercial interests established in the reserve for long periods. The paper discusses confrontations with non-Kuna tourist operators from the late 1960s to the present day and the complex political background to the clashes.

Kawanami J., 1980: Studies on phenyl glycosides as inhibitors of d glucose uptake by rhesus monkey kidney cells. Some analogs of phenyl 6-halogeno-6-deoxy-.beta.-D-glucopyranosides have been found to be inhibitors of glucose uptake by Rhesus monkey kidney cells (LLCMK2 cells). The structures of the glycone and aglycone parts contribute to the inhibitory acti...

Adler, Samuel; Fireman, Tzvi, 2003: Evaluation of the performance of the video capsule system for screening of the stomach. Background: Capsule Endoscopy (CE) is the only non-invasive method for direct visualization of the entire small intestine. The system uses a disposable miniature video camera contained in a capsule, which is ingested by the patient. The capsule pa...

Background: Sevoflurane undergoes Baralyme- or soda lime-catalyzed degradation in the anesthesia circuit to yield compound A (2-(fluoromethoxy)-1,1,3,3,3-pentafluoro-1-propene), which is nephrotoxic in rats and undergoes metabolism via the cystein...

Purpose: To assess the value of an added gradient echo in the same pulse sequence with a T1-weighted spin echo for determining the presence of an abnormal fluid collection in the temporomandibular joint with no additional imaging time. Materials a...

The design of novel functionalized templates capable of binding to the active site of serine proteases could potentially lead to the development of potent and highly selective non-covalent inhibitors of these enzymes. Using the elastase-turkey ovo...
