Research was conducted throughout Eastern and Southern Africa and many of these efforts focused on savanna areas inhabited by pastoral and agropastoral populations (see Abel and Blaikie 1990; Ellis and Swift 1988; Leach and Mearns 1996; Scoones 1996; Homewood and Rogers 1991). Empirical findings from this body of work challenged orthodox assumptions about the relationship between pastoral population growth and environmental change; the resiliency and \'patchiness\' of savanna ecologies (Scoones 1989); and the capacity of local institutions to regulate resource use. They also pointed to concerns about the fundamental politics of pastoral resource use, an issue that had emerged in the early 1980s (Hjort 1982; Little 1985; Little and Horowitz 1987). In terms of theory, two broad bodies of work became especially appealing to social scientists and to a small number of range ecologists: the \'rangelands at disequilibrium\'1 and the \'political ecology\' approaches. A growing number of scholars (including some in this volume) are familiar with both schools; and both have implications for what factors are privileged in interdisciplinary research programs.\";s:5:\"thumb\";s:81:\"images/t/438/rethinking-interdisciplinary-paradigms-and-the-political-ecology.jpg\";s:6:\"thumb2\";s:82:\"images/t2/438/rethinking-interdisciplinary-paradigms-and-the-political-ecology.jpg\";s:9:\"permalink\";s:64:\"rethinking-interdisciplinary-paradigms-and-the-political-ecology\";s:5:\"pages\";s:2:\"29\";s:6:\"rating\";s:1:\"0\";s:5:\"voter\";s:1:\"0\";}i:4;O:8:\"stdClass\":13:{s:2:\"id\";s:4:\"8877\";s:6:\"status\";s:8:\"verified\";s:11:\"author_name\";s:6:\"shinta\";s:9:\"author_id\";s:3:\"377\";s:14:\"author_website\";s:0:\"\";s:5:\"title\";s:67:\"THE INFLUENCE OF U.S. JOINT VENTURES IN ASIA ON SHAREHOLDER WEALTH\";s:11:\"description\";s:1234:\"U.S. direct investment in Asia has almost doubled from 1990 to 1995. U.S. investment in China alone has
\nincreased sixfold during this period. Further, today about $1 in every $5 invested abroad by U.S. investors is
\ninvested in Asia (Department of Commerce, 1996). Obviously, Asia is more and more becoming an attractive target
\nfor U.S. investors. The predominant method for U.S. business to enter Asia is through the joint venture. Motives for
\njoint ventures are presented by Harrigan (1985), Hennert (1988) and Taggert and McDermott (1993). A few studies
\nhave examined the wealth effects of U.S. joint ventures in specific countries of Asia (Lee and Wyatt (1990), Hu,
\nChan and Shieh (1992), and Chung, Koford and Lee (1993)). Nevertheless, there is still some uncertainty about the
\noverall effect of U.S. joint ventures in Asia on U.S. shareholders. Given the significant growth of U.S. direct
\ninvestment in Asia, the purpose of this paper is to reexamine the issue of U.S. joint ventures in Asia and measure
\ntheir overall impact on shareholder wealth. This study extends earlier research by examining a considerable sample
\nof joint ventures over a long time period.

Of this amount, $300 million (or less than 4 percent) is spent by the CGIAR system. There is widespread evidence that this research has led to significant increases in agricultural productivity and incomes in the developing world (Lipton and Longhurst 1989; Walker and Ryan 1990, Hazell and Ramasamy 1991, Kerr and Kolavalli, 1999). It has been further credited with generating the increases in food production that have outstripped population growth and thus averted widespread shortages (Tribe 1994). Moreover, publicly funded agricultural research has been found to have an exceptionally high rate of return (Alston et al, 1998). Yet despite such indications, the impact of CGIAR research on poverty remains controversial.

Unlike other crops that use up soil nutrients, this underground plant helps in reviving the productivity of the soil because of its ability to symbiotically fix nitrogen on the ground (Agustin and Aquino 1990). Although not considered to be one of the major crops in the Philippines, peanut has played a significant role in people\'s lives (Palomar1998). Its contribution does not stop with augmenting household income because peanut is used all over the island either as a snack item or as an ingredient in main dishes (Garcia et al. 1990).

Supportive
\nof this premise, our previous studies have shown that moderate caffeine administration protects/restores cognitive function
\nand suppresses brain amyloid-? (A?) production in AD transgenic mice. In the present study, we report that acute caffeine
\nadministration to both young adult and aged AD transgenic mice rapidly reduces A? levels in both brain interstitial fluid and
\nplasma without affecting A? elimination. Long-term oral caffeine treatment to aged AD mice provided not only sustained
\nreductions in plasma A?, but also decreases in both soluble and deposited A? in hippocampus and cortex. Irrespective of caffeine
\ntreatment, plasma A? levels did not correlate with brain A? levels or with cognitive performance in individual aged AD mice.
\nAlthough higher plasma caffeine levels were strongly associated with lower plasma A?
\nlevels in aged AD mice, plasma
\ncaffeine levels were also not linked to cognitive performance. Plasma caffeine and theophylline levels were tightly correlated,
\nboth being associated with reduced inflammatory cytokine levels in hippocampus. Our conclusion is two-fold: first, that both
\nplasma and brain A? levels are reduced by acute or chronic caffeine administration in several AD transgenic lines and ages,
\nindicating a therapeutic value of caffeine against AD; and second, that plasma A? levels are not an accurate index of brain A?
