This special issue has been in the works for more than a year. When it was finally ready, we discovered that our funds would not permit us to publish it in complete form. We would have to split it into two separate issues. Then, right after we had made that decision, I recalled that Florida International University had indicated that, rather than start a new journal, it might be prepared to supported to support some issues of the IJMED.\r\n I am pleased to say that I have been able to work out an agreement with FIU for financial support for two issues of the journal. This is the first. The other will appear sometime next year.\r\n I would like to express my personal thanks, and the thanks of the outgoing and incoming editors of the IJMED, Ron Perry and Bob Stallings, to FIU for its support. I want to say a particular “Thank you” to Walter Gill Peacock who handled the negotiations with FIU.\r\n
