has committed ARCO to use an environmental management system to meet the terms of its covenant, something that "directs us to think of our facilities as a single system, not as discrete sources of production and pollution requiring individual permits to operate.
Studies described in this report suggest that NEPPs (short for NEurite outgrowth-Promoting Prostaglandins), compounds that accumulate in nerve cells, prevent nerve damage by activating the Keap1/Nrf2 pathway that regulates the production of antioxidants which relieve cells of damaging free radicals that result from excitotoxicity.
Researchers found that NEPPs were able to activate a pathway in nerve cells that is designed to protect against oxidative and nitrosative stress (which produces free radicals) and excitotoxicity.
John Seager, associate director responsible for the Team Valley for the NEPP, said: "There is currently no new industrial space available in Team Valley and obtaining outline planning consent for this site is an important step towards being able to deliver new buildings.
The Newcastle office of national planning consultancy Nathaniel Lichfield & Partners (NLP) prepared and submitted the application on behalf of NEPP, and successfully negotiated with Gateshead Council in order to secure officer support for the scheme.
This development follows on from our other recent successes for NEPP elsewhere in Tyne and Wear and on Teesside, securing planning permissions for new industrial and commercial developments which seek to boost the North East economy.
NEPPS has begun to structure EPA-state agreements around efforts to address specific environmental problems.
If it can be successfully implemented, NEPPS will be the perfect complement to the ultimate reinvention experiment endorsed by Congress: the Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) of 1993.
In light of the compelling evidence that prejudice and bias are learned at an early age, we have begun an effort to help combat intolerance in the schools," Young Lawyers Section Chair Mary Ellen Nepps said.
