The build-ing of carriages is a long-established industry, em- 6 82 On an Automobile ploying hundreds of thousands of hands and millionsof capital, and yet in the entire United States thereare scarcely a dozen builders of really fine, substantial,and durable vehicles. Yet every cross-road maker ofautomobiles thinks that if he can only get his motorto go, the carpenter next door can do his woodwork.The result is cheap stock springs, clips, irons, bodies,cushions, tops, etc., are bought and put over themotor. The use of aluminum bodies and more metalwork generally is helping things somewhat; not thataluminum and metal work are necessarily better thanwood, but it prevents the unnatural union of the lightwood bodies, designed for cheap horse-vehicles, witha motor. The best French makers do not build theirbodies, but leave that part to skilled carriage builders.

It is the logical application of this proposition thatwill defeat the propaganda of action. If it beenacted that any man who advocates the commissionof any criminal act, or who afterwards condones thecrime, shall be deemed guilty of an offence equal tothat advocated or condoned and punished accordingly,the propaganda of action in all branches of criminalendeavor will be effectually stifled without the doubt-ful expedient of directing legislation against any par-ticular social or economic theory.

International Academy of Cardiology Announces 16th World Congress on Heart Disease Annual Scientific Sessions July 23-26, 2011 – Vancouver BC, Canada


Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) July 19, 2011

Asher Kimchi, M.D., Founder and Chairman of the International Academy of Cardiology, today announced the selection of Jay Mehta, M.D., PhD., Director, Molecular Cardiology, Professor of Internal Medicine and Physiology and Biophysics and Stebbins Chair in Cardiology, to deliver the fifth H.J.C. Swan Memorial Lecture at the Opening Ceremony of the International Academy of Cardiology, 16th World Congress on Heart Disease, Annual Scientific Sessions 2011 to be held in Vancouver, BC, Canada, from Saturday, July 23 through Tuesday, July 26, 2011.

Dr. Mehta will present on the topic of Angiogenesis in Atherosclerosis; Mechanisms and Therapeutic Targets. Angiogenesis or generation of new blood vessels has been known to be the basis of development of blood vessels in fetal life. Recently, angiogenesis has been shown to be a fundamental basis of growth and spread of certain tumors. Angiogenesis has also been identified in the media and adventitia of atherosclerotic blood vessels leading to the concept that atherosclerosis is cancer of the blood vessels. Work in his laboratory has suggested a potent role of reactive oxygen species released in response to the activation of angiotensin II and oxidized LDL receptor LOX-1 in angiogenesis.

Dr. Mehta, after receiving an MD in India and PhD in Sweden, joined the faculty of the University of Florida College of Medicine, where he rose to be University Research Foundation Professor. He moved to Little Rock in 2000 as the Professor of Medicine and Physiology and Biophysics. He led the Division of Cardiovascular Medicine at UAMS until 2007. Dr. Mehta serves on the editorial board of several journals, including Circulation, Hypertension, European Heart Journal, and the Journal of the American College of Cardiology. He has published over 1000 papers, abstracts and book chapters. He is a member of many prestigious academic societies.

Dr. Mehtas research on the biology of LOX-1 has opened a new target for cardiovascular therapy. He has taken this work from the identification of the receptor in endothelial cells, macrophages, platelets, and cardiomyocytes to its upregulation in atherosclerosis and tissue ischemia. This work has inspired a host of collaborators at several prestigious universities. He has shown that LOX-1 polymorphism is associated with a heightened risk of acute myocardial infarction in man.

Dr. Mehta has lectured in over 30 countries and has received several major awards from medical and non-medical societies in the US and abroad.

Dr. Asher Kimchi comments, We are most fortunate to have Dr. Mehta with us at the 16th World Congress on Heart Disease. His teachings and research are unparalleled and we are looking forward to his presentation on Angiogenesis in Atherosclerosis.

On Sunday, July 24, 2011, at 9:00 A.M. the Founder and Chairman of the International Academy of Cardiology, Dr. Asher Kimchi, will greet the Congress hundreds of attendees from fifty-eight countries throughout the world.

Dr. Asher Kimchi is the Vice Clinical Chief of Cardiology and the Medical Director of the Preventive and Consultative Heart Center of Excellence at the Cedars-Sinai Heart Institute, Los Angeles. He is also a Clinical Professor of Medicine at David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, Los Angeles.

The official Opening Ceremony and Awards Presentations will be chaired by Dr. John A. Elefteriades, New Haven, CT, USA; Professor of Surgery, Chief, Cardiothoracic Surgery, Yale University School of Medicine; Chairman, Scientific Executive Committee; and Chairman, Section of Cardiovascular Surgery.

The following Members of the International Academy of Cardiology (IAC) will also take part in the Opening Ceremony:


Dr. Jeffrey S. Borer, Professor of Medicine and Chairman, Department of Medicine; Chief/Division of Cardiovascular Medicine, SUNY, Downstate Medical Center, Brooklyn NY; Member, Scientific Executive Committee; Chairman, Section of Valvular Heart Disease

Prof. Naranjan S. Dhalla, Distinguished Professor and Director of Cardiovascular Developments, SBRC, Institute of Cardiovascular Sciences, St. Boniface General Hospital Research Centre, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada; Member of the Scientific Executive Committee and Chairman of the Section of Molecular Cardiology.
