At the beginning of the national era the internal commerce of the United States gave small promise of the tremendous development it was to undergo during the ensuing century. There was as yet too little differentiation of occupation to give rise to a large interstate trade in native products, and the proximity of the greater part of the population to the seacoast made it cheaper and more convenient to carry on the small interstate trade that did exist by means of small sailing vessels plying along the coast. ...
The jurisprudence of the International Court of Justice generally demonstrates
that no rule of international law can be interpreted and applied without regard to
its innate values and the basic principles of human rights. Through its case-law the
ICJ has made immense contributions to the development of human rights law,
and in so doing continues to provide solutions to mounting international prob-
lems, such as terrorism and unilateral use of force.
The wide geographical distribution of the rice
plant ( Oryza sativa L.) and its long history of
cultivation in Asian countries have led to the development
of a great diversity of varietal types.
Similarly, workers in various rice-growing countries
use different terms to designate identical
morphological and physiological characters, agronomic
traits, gene symbols, and cultural practices.
Whereas varietal diversity in germ plasm is desired
in rice breeding, variations in nomenclature hinder
scientific communication among the workers.
A lifetime risk of melanoma development of 6% has been estimated. The risk is greatest before age 5 and next greatest between ages 5 and 10. Early detection of melanoma is difficult in these lesions because of the deep dermal or subcutaneous origin of primary melanoma and because of the large and varied surface of the nevus. Prophylactic excision early in life can be accomplished by staged removal with coverage by split-thickness skin grafts. Surgery cannot remove all at-risk nevus cells as some may penetrate into the muscles or central nervous system below the nevus. At present there are...
Posterior Ischemic Optic Neuropathy This is an infrequent cause of acute visual loss, induced by the combination of severe anemia and hypotension. Cases have been reported after major blood loss during surgery, exsanguinating trauma, gastrointestinal bleeding, and renal dialysis. The fundus usually appears normal, although optic disc swelling develops if the process extends far enough anteriorly. Vision can be salvaged in some patients by prompt blood transfusion and reversal of hypotension.
Optic Neuritis This is a common inflammatory disease of the optic nerve.
The use of the Internet for terrorist purposes is a rapidly growing phenomenon, requiring
a proactive and coordinated response from Member States.
The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) plays a key role in providing
assistance to Member States, in furtherance of its mandate to strengthen the capacity
of national criminal justice systems to implement the provisions of the international
legal instruments against terrorism, and does so in compliance with the principles
rule of law and international human rights standards.

In June 2006, seventeen scientists and educators selected by the National
Academies, the Academy of Sciences of Iran, and the Académie des Sciences
of France held a workshop at the estate of the Fondation des Treilles in
France, to discuss issues concerning the role of science in the development
of modern societies. This location was an idyllic setting for relaxed conversations,
while simplifying travel and visa arrangements for the participants.
Clarissa, an experimental voice enabled procedure browser that has recently been deployed on the International Space Station (ISS), is to the best of our knowledge the ﬁrst spoken dialog system in space.

In the late twentieth century international trade moved from a political multi-polar system based on the nation-state to a system featuring unified regional trading regimes. An inevitable feature of increased cooperation through bilateral, regional and international arrangements is the emergence of disputes over the interpretation and implementation of the agreed upon commitments. Accordingly, reliable mechanisms for the settlement of trade related disputes have become necessary to ensure the effective and continued functioning of these arrangements.

The conservation of artefacts and buildings has
a long history, but the positive emergence of
conservation as a profession can be said to
date from the foundation of the International
Institute for the Conservation of Museum
Objects (IIC) in 1950 (the last two words of
the title being later changed to Historic and
Artistic Works) and the appearance soon after
in 1952 of its journal Studies in Conservation.
INCE 1945, FEW developments have had such a profound impact
on international relations, and few issues have drawn as much atten-
tion in public international law as nuclear weapons. Innumerable
books, articles, resolutions, ofﬁcial statements, and memoranda have dealt
with the status, function, and the (il)legality of the use and possession of
this category of ‘weapons of mass destruction’,
and almost all of them
agree that nuclear weapons are potentially the most destructive weapons
