Voting is now open on the following proposal to create the mailing
list & newsgroup CARDIOVASCULAR-RESEARCH/bionet.biology.cardiovascular.
The proposal below was not modified after the discussion period.

*** NOTE *** We are currently running several votes for other

Purpose of the news group:

Cardiovascular disease is one of the leading causes of death in most
industrialized countries. Over the last few decades, this has been one
of the most intensively studied areas in biological science. The
advance of new technology, such as DNA sequencing, northern and
southern blotting, PCR, patch clamp, Ca2+ dye and single cell force
measurement has rapidly extended our knowledge to molecular level.

The proposed news group is supposed to discuss all cardiovascular
research related topics including anatomy, development, biochemistry,
molecular biology, physiology, biophysics, pathology and pharmacology.
I believe bringing cardiovascular research to the Internet will help
scientists around the world better communicate with each other.

Formation of this news group will provide the following topics:

1. An unmoderated forum for discusion of advances and development in all
   the areas of cardiovascular research.

2. A source of information for all the scientist around the world.

3. A bulletin board for ideas, meetings, funding and job
   opportunities. 

Subscriptions are welcome from all agencies. I am willing to act as
current coordinator to keep the news group active.

Voting is now open on the proposal for
CARDIOVASCULAR-RESEARCH/bionet.biology.cardiovascular and will run
through 24:00 hrs Pacific Time on 18 October 1994.  Please send your
vote to either of the following addresses:

Address                               Location        Network
-------                               --------        -------
biovote at daresbury.ac.uk               U.K.            JANET
biovote at net.bio.net                   U.S.A.          Internet/BITNET

PLEASE BE SURE TO FOLLOW THE FORMAT BELOW - WE OFTEN RUN MORE THAN ONE
VOTE AT A TIME SO A SIMPLE "YES" OR "NO" MESSAGE WITHOUT THE NEWSGROUP
NAME MAY BE AMBIGUOUS.  Your vote should contain a single line:

YES on CARDIO

if you favor allowing the creation of this newsgroup or

NO on CARDIO

if you think that this proposal will adversely affect the
BIOSCI/bionet system.  While not intended to be an exhaustive list of
possible concerns (more specific concerns may have been raised during
the discussion period on BIOFORUM/bionet.general and interested
readers are referred to these), some general reasons for voting NO
might be if you are concerned about newsgroup proliferation and/or
believe that the proposed group will not be utilized, or if you think
that the proposed newsgroup would substantially duplicate or overlap
with the function of existing newsgroups.  If you are simply not
interested in participating in the newsgroup above, please don't cast
a NO vote, but instead just don't vote at all.

The newsgroup proposal must receive at least 80 YES votes to pass and
the number of YES votes must be greater than the number of NO votes by
at least 40.  Discussion of the newsgroup proposal is now closed and
we strongly discourage posting any messages in other forums about the
fact that a CALL FOR VOTES has been issued.
