Hello everybody,

A good friend of mine has endolymphatic hydrops.
It is often confused with Meniers disease in the literature.
The symptoms include: vertigo (dizziness), tinnitus
(ringing in the ears), ear aches (deep ear pain),
nausea (sick feeling), and headaches (obvious).

All possible "regular" ways of treatment
have been already tried out.
Unfortunately, none of them has helped.

I would really appreciate any relevant
information on "alternative"
medicine (sources/techniques/etc).
PLEASE help!

Sincerely,
Sasha.

A Shrimp Learnt to Whistle - the perfect Christmas present for Russophiles.
By Sarah Hurst
For ordering details write to Sarah.Hurst@BTInternet.com

A convicted murderer who protests his innocence, a hippy who
dreams of building a temple to John Lennon, a philandering polar
explorer, a disgruntled sex shop manageress...these are just a few of
the unusual people whose lives have been turned upside-down by the
collapse of the Soviet Union. A Shrimp Learnt to Whistle is Russia
from the inside, a simultaneously humorous and poignant journey
through a society in turmoil.

Unlike the foreign correspondents of national newspapers and
broadcasting companies, Sarah Hurst lived in Russia on a Russian
salary, first as a student and later as a staff reporter on The St
Petersburg Press. She became intimately acquainted with some of the
mysteries of Russian life, from unconventional plumbing methods to
unfathomable visa regulations to uninhibited married men. In the
course of her adventures she was propositioned by a pot-bellied lorry
driver and shunned by Alexander Lebed in the State Duma.

A Shrimp Learnt to Whistle is about Russian life as it's really lived. It
contains a hugely entertaining series of poignant, shocking and
humorous portraits of people as diverse as the late Mikhail Botvinnik,
world chess champion under Stalin, politician Galina Starovoitova,
Yeltsin's former right hand woman and 'ordinary' people like Alexei the
lecherous policeman and his moody mother.

If you've visited Russia and know what it's like then you will identify
with Sarah Hurst's experiences. If you haven't, this book is a
compelling introduction to the biggest and most mixed-up country in
the world.

Subject: SCIENTIST: From Research to Industry... Resources

***GUIDING RESEARCH INTO INDUSTRY***

The US Civilian Research and Development Foundation (CRDF) is currently
running three programs to support ECE and FSU scientists in moving their
research toward the industrial market, either directly or by facilitating
international collaboration.

REGIONAL EXPERIMENTAL SUPPORT CENTER PROGRAM

Through its pilot Regional Experimental Support Center Program (RESC), the
CRDF spent $1.5 million to provide major equipment to selected FSU research
centers in order to support those conducting scientific and technological
research that requires modern, sophisticated equipment. The equipment and
award sites were chosen for their ability to help underpin sustainable
economic and technologicaldevelopment in the designated region.

 Scientists in both industry and academia may access this equipment. Modest
fees will be assessed for equipment use in order to sustain the centers,
which are self-supporting. Scientists and industrial representatives who
would benefit from utilizing the equipment should contact the specific
project director of the Support Center in their region:

INDUSTRY OUTREACH PROGRAM

The experimental Industry Outreach Program (IOP) is intended to encourage
funding of highly regarded research projects by drawing the attention of US
companies and other potential financiers to a broad range of ideas in basic
and applied research put forward by teams of scientists and engineers from
the FSU and their partners in the United States.

The program has its base in a World Wide Web page containing a list of
projects that were submitted to the CRDF Cooperative Grants competition in
1996 and/or 1997 and recommended for funding by the CRDF panel that
reviewed it. Unfortunately, CRDF was able to finance less than ten percent
of the
approximately 3,400 proposals submitted.

IOP provides descriptions of those programs which were approved but for which
funding did not suffice in an effort to elicit interest by other potential
funding sources. Principal Investigators and institutional representatives
responsible for these projects have given CRDF permission to list them on its
IOP Web page. The capability and ideas represented may be of value to
companies requiring research and development capacity outside available
in-house resources.

The IOP Page contains proposals in the following disciplinary areas:

* Biological and Biomedical Sciences and Engineering
* Physical Sciences
* Geological Sciences and Engineering
* Chemical Sciences and Engineering
* Mathematical, Information and Computer Sciences
* Electrical, Materials, and Manufacturing Sciences

Within each topic area, projects are grouped by country according to the FSU
research partner. Abstracts may be requested from CRDF for project titles of
particular interest. To pursue the possibility of collaboration further,
interested parties may request the names and addresses of the project team.
CRDF will forward that information and simultaneously inform the team of
the inquiry.

Financial support for projects on the IOP page may be rendered either through
CRDF or independently. Advantages of and requirements for providing support
via CRDF are available directly from CRDF.

Contact Information

The IOP Web Page is accessible at URL:
http://www.crdf.inter.net/programs/industry/industry.html. To support a
project through CRDF or donate funds to further CRDF's work in building
mutually beneficial R&D cooperation with the former Soviet Union, please
contact Dr. John C. Courtney, Chief Financial Officer, US Civilian Research
and Development Foundation, 1800 North Kent Street, Suite 1106, Arlington
VA 22209, USA; Fax: 703-526-9721; E-mail: jcourtney@crdf.org

NEXT STEPS TO THE MARKET PROGRAM

Next Steps to the Market (NSM) is an experimental CRDF program designed to
increase CRDF support for collaborations leading to applications with market
potential. It stimulates cooperation in applied R&D by supporting projects
likely to facilitate and expedite the commercial utilization of research
results. Teams of US-FSU researchers including a US for-profit institution are
eligible to apply. Investigators who have already received support through
competitive CRDF awards will receive priority consideration.

The CRDF's investment in each project will generally not exceed $50,000.
The US for-profit partner must be prepared to make a substantial investment
in the project -- typically at least half of the total estimated cost of
the project, including both US and FSU expenses. The US partner should
furthermore agree to dedicate a portion of its investment to FSU
participant expenses. At least 80% of the CRDF's investment will be so
dedicated. However, the CRDF may support mutually agreed upon US-side
expenses, such as travel, which may be necessary inconnection with the
collaboration and which the US for-profit partner cannot cover - e.g.,
transportation of US non-profit research partners or travel of FSU
researchers to the US.

The US and FSU partners must agree to some form of payback to the CRDF if
income results from the project, and they are required to reach written
agreement on the allocation of intellectual property rights resulting from
research under the NSM program. Both of these agreements must be concluded
to the satisfaction of CRDF.

Eligible Activities

Cooperative R&D Projects

Cooperative R&D Projects must be carried out by a team of US and FSU partners.
The primary US partner must be a for-profit corporation which agrees to the
CRDF's requirements for cost-sharing and payback.  Researchers from US
non-profit institutions may also be included in the proposal. The FSU
partner is typically a research scientist or team based in a research or
educational
institution or enterprise.

Typically, alumni/ae of the CRDF Travel Grant Program whose visits in the
United States have resulted in promising opportunities for commercial
development of R&D products will be the primary applicants for this mode of
support. In special circumstances, the CRDF will also consider ad hoc
proposals from other applicants that further the objectives of the program.

Business Development Activities

Business Development Activities (BDA) are those that facilitate the
transformation of research results into commercial products. Examples of such
activities include:

* Training in business practices, management, intellectual property issues,
etc.
* Assistance in preparing a business plan, conducting a patent
search, or locating professional counsel in the United States on intellectual
property matters
* Participation in technical meetings, trade shows, etc. to present or
demonstrate potentially marketable technologies
* Developmental follow-on to research in progress or already carriedout,
where such follow-on will provide data or other support for demonstrating
technologies to potential entrepreneurs or investors

Applicants for BDA support will typically be current recipients of CRDF
cooperative research grants. For-profit partners identified by the US-FSU
teams may be included in business development proposals.

Evaluation Criteria

Proposals to the NSM program will be evaluated for technical merit and
business viability. Potential contributions of the project to the CRDF's
mission and the priorities of the CRDF's counterpart agencies in the FSU
will also be considered.

Applicants may suggest reviewers whose experience with the technology
or the business area in question makes them particularly well-suited to
participate in the review.

Protection of Business-Confidential Information

Applicants are responsible for identifying any business-confidential
information contained in their proposals. Such information will be available
only to reviewers and to CRDF staff. Applicants may also specify particular
organizations or individuals whose access to their proposals would compromise
business-sensitive information.

Proposals

Proposals to the Next Steps program should focus on one activity that
the principal investigators and their respective institutions feel will most
help the project to advance toward the marketplace. Proposals must be in
English and may be submitted to CRDF at any time until 31 December 1997 or
until the CRDF, at its own discretion, closes the program.

Contact Information

Application forms and full guidelines for this and other CRDF programs are

Development Foundation, 1800 North Kent Street, Suite 1106, Arlington VA
