Introduction An established body of research has outlined a strong relationship between individual-level socioeconomic characteristics and tolerance (Lipset 1959 ; Svallfors 2006 ). There is also growing evidence of a relationship between tolerance and social contexts (Uslaner 2002

These social reconfigurations, including those oriented towards internal

Plants have a potential for the uptake and accumulation of essential and non-essential trace elements. The ability to take up and tolerate metals varies between and within species as well as between metals. For most metals, the mechanisms involved in plant tolerance, uptake and accumulation are still not fully known and it is not known to what extent the plant response is metal-specific rather than a general stress response. In the present study, the growth response of soybean to Cd, As, Al and NaCl was compared and contrasted to simple sequence repeat (SSR) marker analysis results for Cda1, a dominant gene located in a major quantitative trait locus that regulates Cd accumulation in soybean, to evaluate the hypothesis that general effect patterns are induced by the individual metals. Principal component analysis revealed that the root growth response was most diverse for Al exposure and decreased in the order of Al > As > Cd > NaCl. NaCl did not exert a differentiating effect, indicating response mechanisms similar, at least partially, to metal exposure. The applied stressors yielded a distinguishable pattern of root responses, indicating the potential of such screens to identify agents acting similarly or differently. The SSR marker analysis also facilitated characterization of the Cd accumulation potential of the 22 soybean cultivars studied, and thereby identification of cultivars with potential health risk under cultivation in Cd-contaminated soils.

During modernity the idea of ‘amor impossibilis’ [impossible love], originating in the story of Iphis and Ianthé in Ovid’s Metamorphoses, was expanded to refer to what we would now call lesbian relationships. Something made this love considered ‘not-possible’ and it seems it referred mainly to an idea of physical incompatibility (which of course could only be understood from certain phallogocentric vision). That gives us clues about other social obstacles that must have intervened in the impossibility of this passion/relationship/love. However, possible-life frames change constantly. Through this article I have wondered what love is and if there are, just as happens with gender, regulatory or normative loves, which operate in this case? Which loves would be intelligible and how do the frames within these normative loves arise, are held, have changed, and are being transformed? The ‘Love’ as a set of imaginary rules is closely related to sex norms that materialise bodies. Thus there is a correspondence between pre-determined loves and the concrete bodies that love. Determined sexual politics promote and bet on certain amorous bonds in ways that preclude others. In this sense, the question is how power shapes the field in which the subjects or the loving bonds between them become possible or how they become impossible. The issue is more complex than the binary scheme where some are prohibited and some are legal. Which love for what policies? Finally, I propose the following question: Could we comprehend the regulations and discourses about tolerance as opposed to institutionalised love? If the mainly neoliberal discourse about tolerance can be understood as regulating policies of the aversion (as Wendy Brown exposed), where do the love stories exist at the margins of hegemonic norms of sexuality?

Abstract: The origins of the concept of tolerance are explored via looking at the writings of Castellio, Locke, and Mill. The contest between rival religious and political opinions sparked discussions about tolerance. Mill accentuated the notion of the pursuit of truth to promote tolerance of
