The indices of the frequency com- ponents and their power spectra provide reliable infor- mation about the gastric motility. The human gastric signals are divided into three components: bradygastria (0.5±2.0 cpm), slow wave (2.0±5.0 cpm), and tachyga- stria (5.0±9.0 cpm) (Chen and McCallum 1993). In particular, the change of the power density in the slow T. Ishitake (8) á Y. Miyazaki á H. Ando á T. Matoba wave component may re¯ect the contractile activity of the stomach (Smout et al. 1980; Chen et al. 1994). The EGG has been widely used as a diagnostic method for functional disorders associated with abnormalities of the gastric motility (Geldof et al. 1987; Cucchiara et al.
1992; Jebbink et al. 1995; Parkman et al. 1997). In our Statistics recent experiments, brief exposure to WBV suppressed the slow wave component (Ishitake et al. 1998).

Do the people want a tax cut? During the 2000 presidential campaign, the candidates debated what to do with the large government surplus. The Pew Research Center asked two questions of random samples of adults. Both said that Social Security would be “fixed.” Here are the uses suggested for the remaining surplus: Should the money be used for a tax cut, or should it be used to fund newgov
