. When Calisto and Sempronio withdraw inside the former’s house to get the money with which to pay Celestina, she moves in to neutralize Pármeno as an obstacle, urging him to put a friendship with the treacherous Sempronio and a vague money- making scheme ahead of his loyalty to his master Calisto. Pármeno replies in these words: R E S I S TA N C E Resistance 75 pármeno. Celestina, todo tremo de oý rte. No sé qué haga. Per- plexo estó. Por una parte, téngote por madre. Por otra a Calisto por amo. Riqueza desseo, pero quien torpemente sube a lo alto, más aý na

Its Sources and Manifestations

dashed in pigment, the figures resistance 31 move in two dimensions only, left and right, up and down, like they have commandeered the pages of a book. The story the film tells is as simple as it is poignant: the animals, once happy and free in the jungle, working and sharing and playing with their families and their friends, are rounded up by hunters from the city and put inside a zoo. A kindly girl hatches a plan with the animals who still remain in the jungle, and together they pull off a daring escape, rescuing their captured friends through a secret tunnel

174 7 Strikes and Resistance IN EARLY 1943 John Yoshida escaped from the American concentration camp at Jerome, Arkansas. It was easy to get out; people did it all the time. With a day pass, you could catch a bus into town and go shopping. Even without a pass, many Japanese Americans sneaked out to go fi shing or to take a walk in the woods. But unlike the shoppers and the hikers, John Yoshida had no intention of coming back. Some time after noon on Sunday, 17 January, he slipped past the barbed- wire fence encircling the Jerome camp.

In account after account of the extraordinary efforts that went into raising funds for journalists cast out of work by the strangulating censorship, the newspapers that still could func- tion announced events in the passive voice: “A lottery is planned,” “an event called ‘Press Days’ is being held.” Those directly responsible remained safely hidden behind a seman- tic scrim of obfuscating concealment that

49 Resistance to Discovery The driving idea behind the blind injection challenge was to do some social and psychological engineering—to get the commu- nity out of its negative mindset. Knowing that there might be blind injections in the data, the scientists had to be ready to see something, not just reject everything. Before going on to explain this in more detail, let me make clear the truth-status of the claim that I have just made about the idea behind the challenge. This ra- tionale also covers the status of the claims made in the Introduc- tion, such as

support, the seal’s by enhanced provision of both aerobic and anaerobic resources for diving endurance. Understanding the details of whatever mechanisms might exist for resisting threats to consciousness clearly deserves attention. Failure of the brief resistance to asphyxia in human and other terrestrial mam- malian central nervous systems is so precipitate and catastrophic that a systematic examination of its process can be a difficult and uncertain 1 4 0 C H A P T E R 9 undertaking. Some of this difficulty is rendered manageable by exam- ination of

4 Induced Resistance against Herbivores 4.1 EFFECTS ON PERFORMANCE OF BIOASSAY HERBIVORES AS EVIDENCE OF INDUCED RESISTANCE AND SUSCEPTIBILITY Changes that occur in a plant after it has been attacked by herbivores may affect those attackers or other herbivores that attempt to use the plant at a later time. The easiest and most direct way to determine whether responses provide induced resistance-that is, whether they af- fect herbivores-is to challenge damaged plants with living herbivores. The behavior, performance (survival, growth rate, fecundity), or
