Opening Speech of the ICEDIVE eighty four convention via His Royal Highness Prince Bertil of Sweden i'm very happy to be invited to open the foreign convention ICEDIVE eighty four, facing scientific and technical difficulties of diving and comparable underwater actions in arctic stipulations. till contemporary occasions, the arctic used to be thought of astrange and distant zone of juvenile value. even if, in an international with diminishing traditional assets, arctic parts became a zone of worldwide value due to their huge, immense assets and strategie place. yes specialists think that greater than 50% of oil reserves are "sleeping" in those northern components that are chilly, harsh and antagonistic to guy. Operations in arctic components are tremendous tough, dear, and insist excessive degrees of technical, clinical and physiological success. One may still bear in mind for instance, that Alaskan oil funding onIy grew to become economically practicable after the 1973-1974 expense explosion. contemporary political/military problems within the Gulf have elevated curiosity within the improvement of polar assets. This convention is exclusive because it is the 1st time that clinical and technical experts drawn to the matter of diving in arctic stipulations have met in a world discussion board. improvement of the arctic assets is an issue of overseas urgency, and it pleases me that scientists from america, Canada, the USSR, Australia and Europe have accumulated the following in Stockholm to provide their adventure and to debate difficulties during this field.

O-endorphin enhances ethanol-induced hypothermia and sedation in mice. Interference by ethanol with endorphin levels in the pituitary is suggested by functional abnormalities in the hypothalamo-pituitary-adrenal axis in chronic alcoholics (Merry, 1973) since ACTH and o-endorphin are located in the same cells and derive from a common precursor molecule. , 1981).
