    Leo J. Elders, S.V.D.

    2014-12-01

    Full Text Available Inspired with Jude P. Dougherty’s works in which he stresses the overruling importance of the classical, humanistic education and the central place and role of religion in the Western culture, the author presents Christopher Dawson’s analysis of the Western civilization and his demonstration of the central role of Christianity in it. The author traces the premises on which was based Dawson’s opinion that modern Western man might be absorbed by his technical inventions, to the point of losing his soul.

  2. Luc Savary (1949 - 2014)

    2014-01-01

    It is with great sadness that we announce the death of our colleague Luc Savary at the age of 64.   Luc joined CERN in 1984 as a guard and often regaled us with stories of that time. He subsequently worked in the parts manufacturing workshop before joining the Mail Office in 2002, where he was taken under the wing of Jacky Dallemagne and learned the ins and outs of the mailing service. Luc was a native of northern France and returned there from time to time, especially to visit the world-renowned flea market in Lille, which he loved. He didn’t like work to pile up and was quick to start on a job as soon as it arrived, always with determination and efficiency. Luc was highly self-sufficient and if one of his machines needed repairing he was only too happy to return to the workshop to make a new component. Although unassuming, he had a strong personality and enjoyed telling jokes. He was always there when you needed him and had a heart of gold. The Mail Office team are immensely saddened...

    Sigismondi, Costantino

    2012-01-01

    The Jesuit scientist Christopher Clavius (1538-1612) has been the most influential teacher of the renaissance. His contributions to algebra, geometry, astronomy and cartography are enormous. He paved the way, with his texts and his teaching for 40 years in the the Collegio Romano, to the development of these sciences and their fruitful spread all around the World, along the commercial paths of Portugal, which become also the missionary paths for the Jesuits. The books of Clavius were translated into Chinese, by one of his students Matteo Ricci "Li Madou" (1562-1610), and his influence for the development of science in China was crucial. The Jesuits become skilled astronomers, cartographers and mathematicians thanks to the example and the impulse given by Clavius. This success was possible also thanks to the contribution of Clavius in the definition of the Ratio Studiorum, the program of studies, in the Jesuit colleges, so influential for the whole history of modern Europe and all western World.

    Full Text Available  AbstractRicœur, in his Philosophy of the Will (1950, is already turning eidetic descriptions into linguistic descriptions. Therefore what is at stake between phenomenologists and analytic philosophers is not the linguistic turn as such. Rather, it is the question whether all psychological verbs are experiential verbs. The contribution of Vincent Descombes is presented as a response to the communication of Jean-Luc Petit delivered in Paris in November 2013 for the International Congress "Ricœur and Contemporary Philosophy in the English Language." A written version of Jean-Luc Petit’s paper can be found in this issue. NDE RésuméDès sa Philosophie de la volonté (1950, Ricœur donne un tour linguistique à ses descriptions eidétiques.

  7. Jean-Luc Nancy and politics. Communism and Inoperative community

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Piotr Sadzik

    2013-01-01

    Full Text Available In this article I would like to show in which way in the works ofFrench philosopher Jean-Luc Nancy there are links between “community” and“communism”. The latter, for him, has a meaning exceeding the domain of politicsand should be understood as a some kind of pre-existential and quasi-onthologicalcategory. Being-in-common means for philosopher being-with which is expressedby Latin prefix “com” characterizing “communitas” and “communism”. “Com”emphasizes that being is first of all being with other (not only with other peoplebut with every other being including in it animals, plants etc. Furthermore, asNancy said: “communism is togetherness – the Mitsein, the being- with, understood as the belonging to existence of the individuals, which means, in the existential meaning, to their essence”. Therefore, Nancy’s community doesn’t belong to “the logic of myth” since is, in the first place, what he called “the inoperative community”.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Stoner, Matthew A; Yang, Chun Z; Bittner, George D

    2014-08-01

    Endocrine disrupting chemicals with estrogenic activity (EA) have been associated with various adverse health effects. US agencies (ICCVAM/NICEATM) tasked to assess in vitro transcription activation assays to detect estrogenic receptor (ER) agonists for EA have recently validated a BG1Luc assay in manual format, but prefer robotic formats. We have developed a robotic BG1Luc EA assay to detect EA that demonstrated 100% concordance with ICCVAM meta-analyses and ICCVAM BG1Luc results in manual format for 27 ICCVAM test substances, i.e. no false negatives or false positives. This robotic assay also consistently assessed other, more problematic ICCVAM test substances such as clomiphene citrate, L-thyroxin, and tamoxifen. Agonist responses using this robotic BG1Luc assay were consistently inhibited by the ER antagonist ICI 182,780, confirming that agonist responses were due to binding to ERs rather than to a non-specific agonist response. This robotic assay also detected EA in complex mixtures of substances such as extracts of personal care products, plastic resins or plastic consumer products. This robotic BG1Luc assay had at least as high accuracy and greater sensitivity and repeatability when compared to its manual version or to the other ICCVAM/OECD validated assays for EA (manual BG1Luc and CERI).

  11. Metamorfosi e inversioni ironiche da Christopher Marlowe a Edith Sitwell

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Giovanna Silvani

    2010-06-01

    Full Text Available Il mio intervento si propone di analizzare le citazioni bibliche e classiche inserite da Christopher Marlowe nei suoi drammi, spesso con intenti ironici e dissacranti, specie nel Doctor Faustus e in The Jew of Malta, al fine di verificare gli scopi che si propone il drammaturgo con le distorsioni e le omissioni operate sui testi sacri da lui citati.Le potenzialità seminali della catena intertestuale sono testimoniate dalle citazioni rintracciabili in alcune poesie di Edith Sitwell, poetessa modernista, ispirate alla Seconda Guerra Mondiale e tratte dai drammi marloviani. Sono prestiti che ribadiscono che la Sitwell utilizza i meccanismi intertestuali conferendo alle parole “rubate” una nuova vitalità che conduce ad esiti intriganti e imprevedibili.This essay starts by examining the abundant Biblical references in Christopher Marlowe’s drama, and especially The Jew of Malta and Doctor Faustus. It particularly assesses the degree of fidelity of such references to their source text, as it throws light on the distortions and omissions by which the playwright modifies Holy Scripture to fit his own ends. Subsequently, the essay considers the poetical production of the Modernist author Edith Sitwell, who, in her compositions inspired by World War II, recovers and refashions some significant passages from Marlowe’s works. Indeed, Sitwell’s verse is a valuable instance of her remarkable skill in awarding new vitality and relevance to words and phrases which she extracts from the literary tradition in order to transform and update them.

  12. NanoLuc luciferase - A multifunctional tool for high throughput antibody screening

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2016-02-01

    Full Text Available Based on the recent development of NanoLuc Luciferase a small (19 kDa, highly stable, ATP independent, bioluminescent protein, an extremely robust and ultra high sensitivity screening system has been developed whereby primary hits of therapeutic antibodies and antibody fragments could be characterized and quantified without purification. This system is very versatile allowing cellular and solid phase ELISA but also homogeneous BRET based screening assays, relative affinity determinations with competition ELISA and direct western blotting. The new NanoLuc Luciferase protein fusion represents a swiss army knife solution for today and future high throughput antibody drug screenings.

Para isso, toma-se como base o livro O mundo de ponta-cabeça: idéias radicais durante a Revolução Inglesa de 1640, de Christopher Hill, pois esse autor dá um outro enfoque à Revolução Inglesa, mostra-a de outro ponto de vista, o do povo, que foi parte fundamental para que essa revolução tomasse as proporções que tomou, sendo um marco para a história tanto inglesa quanto mundial. Também o capítulo “Acumulação primitiva” de O capital, de Karl Marx, que mostra as transformações do feudalismo para o capitalismo e como estas interferiram nos fatores que levaram à Revolução Inglesa.

  14. Sounding Out Homer: Christopher Logue’s Acoustic Homer

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Emily Greenwood

    2009-10-01

    Full Text Available Christopher Logue’s adaptations of Homer’s _Iliad_ go by the collective title of _War Music_, hinting at the importance of sound for Logue’s conception of the project. This article examines Logue’s Homer in the context of other contemporary translators of Homer who have all sought, in various ways, to produce translations that bring Homer to life. In Logue’s case, performance is a vital part of this enlivening, resulting in a poem with an intrinsic oral dimension, which is reproduced on the page via various typographical cues and reinforced by the poem’s performance history on radio and stage. In this essay the soundscape of Logue’s Homer is illustrated by a detailed case study of a single scene from Book 16 of the _Iliad_, in which the sound effects present in the Homeric simile are amplified. It considers the paradox of attributing aural fidelity to a free adaptation of Homer, before concluding that Logue’s adaptation can make us more attuned to the acoustic potential of Homer. Conversely, the tension between writing and oral genres inherent in Homeric epic can lead us to a better understanding of the relationship between the written and spoken word in Logue’s Homer.

  15. The conquest of paradise or Christopher Columbus’s utopia

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Vladimir Karanović

    2014-12-01

    Full Text Available The paper analyses the relationship between film and history based on the film 1492: Conquest of Paradise by Ridley Scott. It questions the importance of the context in which the movie with a historical theme is created and in that light its significance is interpreted. Based on the structural theory of myth, the article examines the elements of the mythic structure of Christopher Columbus’s voyage, relating this concept to Utopia. Special emphasis is placed on the importance of the first meeting or the clash between two cultures, which determines their future relations. According to the established theoretical and critical framework, the notions of paradise as well as the figure of the foreigner are questioned. The intention of this paper is to demonstrate that in Ridley Scott’s film history is much more complex and cannot be enclosed in platitudes and common places. Although it was not Scott’s intention to offer a counterfactual view of recorded history, and he does not question what might have happened in other circumstances, by introducing certain apocryphal elements and foretelling later historical events, we show that he is able to start a discussion on views on the process of discovery and conquest of America and especially about their meaning throughout history and their relationship with the present.

  10. From Information to Experience: Christoph Schlingensief's Quiz 3000

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Full Text Available When German artist Christoph Schlingensief died in 2010 he had amassed an impressive body of work spanning a diverse range of fields, including film, television, theatre, art, radio, activism, and opera. Although he gained a certain notoriety for his early film and performance work, it was through his politically engaged re-enactment of a series of reality television programs that his public profile in Germany was cemented. This article focuses on the pilot episode of Quiz 3000 that was staged at the Volksbühne in 2002 and that was modelled closely on the popular reality format Who Wants to be a Millionaire? As Schlingensief has made clear in an interview with Alexander Kluge, his interest in re-enactment as a critical strategy is not driven by a desire for total verisimilitude, but by the inconsistencies that are generated in the re-enactment process that serve as catalysts for reflection and debate. In Quiz 3000 it is the nature of the questions posed to the contestants (such as: 'The rape of members of which minority group is, according to the German criminal code, less heavily penalized?' and 'How many conscientious objectors from Kurdistan have, since 2001, been tortured to death in Turkey after being deported by Germany?' that generates the inconsistency in question. Drawing on Walter Benjamin and Theodor Adorno's writings on information and experience, I argue that Quiz 3000 transforms the information-driven focus of television quiz shows into a source of experience for viewers and contestants alike by encouraging them to reflect on political issues and debates in an autonomous, affective, and meaningful way.

  11. Christopher Hawkes and the International Summer Courses of Ampurias

    Full Text Available This article aims to provide an initial analysis of the early connections between Christopher Hawkes and Spanish archaeology in the context of his participation in two of the international summer courses in Ampurias in 1947 and 1950. The documentation used for this article comes mainly from the Pericot Archive in the Library of Catalonia, in which there are 43 letters from Hawkes to Pericot between 1940 and 1975. In addition, other correspondence in the British Museum and in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs will be mentioned. This study forms part of a larger project of recovering the memory of twentieth-century British-Spanish relations, of which a first phase has centred on the assessment of Gordon Childe’s contacts with Spain (Díaz-Andreu 1998; forthcoming–a; forthcoming–b. As in Gordon Childe’s case, all memory of Hawkes’ visits, and indeed of his relationships with Spanish archaeologists, has since been lost. Unfortunately, this situation is not exceptional: most of the links between Spanish archaeologists and British and American archaeologists in the twenty years around the Spanish Civil War have dropped out of archaeological memory. To the names mentioned in a recent seminar (Gordon Childe, Edward Thurlow Leeds, Eoin MacWhite, Hubert Savory (Armada Pita 2006, many others could be added. As this article will show, however, there were many contacts and these help to explain some developments in the archaeological thinking and practice of the participants involved in these exchanges, as well as some events in the international organisation of archaeology.

    Paralongidorus bullatus n. sp. from groundnut soils in Sador'é Niger is described and illustrated. It is distinguishable from most species of the genus by its body and odontostyle lengths, knob-like head, and digitate ending of the protoplasmic region of the tail. Length of the female body is 4.4-5.5 mm, of the odontostyle 132-156 mum, and of the tail 32-44 mum. Tail terminus is conoid to broadly rounded. Uteri are well developed, without sperms. Males are not found. Xiphinema parasetariae Luc 1958, a species inquirenda, is validated and, based on measurements and tail structures, X. attorodorum Luc 1961 is proposed as a synonym of X. parasetariae. Additional measurements are given for its females and juveniles.

    Newcastle disease virus (NDV) is a member of the Paramyxovirinae subfamily and can infect most species of birds. It has been a great threat for the poultry industry all around the world. In this report, we successfully produced infectious pseudotyped pNL4-3-Luc-R(-)E(-) (HIV-Luc) viruses with the HN and F envelope proteins of NDV. Further investigation revealed the cytoplasmic domains of HN and F, especially HN, plays a significant role in the infection efficiency of these pseudotyped HIV-Luc viruses. Replacement of, or direct fusion to the cytoplasmic domain of the HN protein by that of vesicular stomatitis virus G (VSV-G) could greatly enhance or destroy the infective potential of HN and F-pseudotyped (NDV-pseudotyped) HIV-Luc virus. We further established a novel neutralization assay to evaluate neutralizing antibodies against NDV with the NDV-pseudotyped HIV-Luc viruses. Comparative neutralization data indicate that the results determined by using the NDV-pseudotyped HIV-Luc viruses are as reliable as those by the conventional virus-neutralization assay (VN test) with native NDV. Moreover, the results show that the novel neutralization assay is more sensitive than the VN test.

  1. The Mechanism of the Silencing of a Transgene, NCED3‐LUC, in Arabidopsis Thaliana

    KAUST Repository

    Zhao, Junsong

    2011-06-20

    The Arabidopsis thaliana NCED3‐LUC transgenic line was constructed by several groups to study the regulatory network of the NCED3 gene, the protein of which catalyzes the rate‐limiting step of ABA biosynthesis under drought. The transgenic luciferase gene is expressed when the plants encounter drought stress. Intriguingly, this transgenic luciferase gene is silenced after propagation for several generations. To determine the mechanism of this gene silencing, we used a forward genetics approach. The seeds of NCED3‐LUC (referred as the ‘wild type’) were mutagenized by ethane methyl sulfonate (EMS). One mutant line, denoted as #73, with recovered luciferase activity was selected for further study. Analysis of the methylation status by bisulfite sequencing revealed that the transgenic NCED3 promoter in the #73 mutant had less methylation than the wild type. Demethylation was also evident for the endogenous NCED3 promoter and retrotransposon AtSN1 in the #73 mutant. The phenotype of #73 mutant includes small size, rapid dehydration rate, altered morphology, and a thin epicuticular wax layer. By use of map‐based cloning, the region containing the mutated gene was delimited to a contig of two BAC clones, F11F19 and F9C22, on chromosome 2. Our results indicate that NCED3‐LUC gene silencing results from hypermethylation of its promoter region, but additional study is required to determine the exact position of the mutated gene and to fully understand the mechanism of NCED3‐LUC silencing. 4 ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS I would like to take this opportunity to thank my committee chair, Professor Jian‐Kang Zhu, who is also the supervisor of my master’s thesis, for his guidance throughout the course of this research. I also would like to thank my committee members, Professor Liming Xiong and Professor Samir Hamdan, for their patience and support in reviewing my thesis.

    2012-01-01

    Full Text Available Problem statement: One of the public key cryptosystem is Luc cryptosystems. This system used Lucas Function for encryption and decryption process. Lucas Function is a special form of second-order linear recurrence relation. An encyption process is used to encrypt an original message to ciphertext by using public key. A decryption process is the process to decrypt a ciphertext into original message using private key. The existing algorithm on computing private key computation involved some redundant computations. Approach: In this study, an efficient algorithm to compute private key for Luc cryptosystem is developed. The Extended Euclidean Algorithm will be enhanced by implementing Divide-By-Prime in its computations. The comparison is focused on the computation time by the existing and new algorithms. The more efficient algorithm means the better computation time. The shorter computation time the better algorithm. Results: A new algorithm shows better computation time. In all experiments, the computation time by new algorithm is always better than the existing algorithm. Conclusion: The new computation algorithm that based on Divide-By-Prime provided better efficiency of decryption process compared to the existing algorithm.

    Full Text Available Age-related changes are associated with susceptibility to infection, malignancy, autoimmunity, response to vaccination and wound healing. To investigate the relationship of several pathological phenotypes of allergic inflammationto age, alterations in theIL-4 derived luciferase signal and general phenotype biomarkers were measured in young (2-month-old and old (12-month-old IL-4/Luc/CNS-1 transgenic (Tg mice with phthalic anhydride (PA-induced allergic inflammationfor 2 weeks. There was no difference in the ear phenotypes and thickness between young and old mice, although these levels were higher in the PA-treated group thantheacetone-olive oil (AOO-treated group. The luciferase signal was detected in the mesenteric lymph node (ML, thymus and pancreas of both young and old PA-treated mice, but showed a greater increasein old Tg mice (exceptin thethymus. Agreaterincrease inthe epidermal thickness and dermal thickness was measured in old PA-treated mice than young PA-treated mice, while total mast cell number remainedconstant in both groups. Furthermore, the concentration of IgE was greater in young PA-treated mice than in old PA-treated mice,as wasthe expression of VEGF and IL-6. Taken together, theresults of this study showed that an animal’s age is an important factor that must be considered when PA-induced allergic inflammation in IL-4/Luc/CNS-1 Tg mice areinvestigated to screen for allergens and therapeutic compounds.

  7. Circadian rhythms of Per2::Luc in individual primary mouse hepatocytes and cultures.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Casey J Guenthner

    Full Text Available BACKGROUND: Hepatocytes, the parenchymal cells of the liver, express core clock genes, such as Period2 and Cryptochrome2, which are involved in the transcriptional/translational feedback loop of the circadian clock. Whether or not the liver is capable of sustaining rhythms independent of a central pacemaker is controversial. Whether and how circadian information may be shared among cells in the liver in order to sustain oscillations is currently unknown. RESULTS: In this study we isolated primary hepatocytes from transgenic Per2(Luc mice and used bioluminescence as a read-out of the state of the circadian clock. Hepatocytes cultured in a collagen gel sandwich configuration exhibited persistent circadian rhythms for several weeks. The amplitude of the rhythms damped, but medium changes consistently reset the phase and amplitude of the cultures. Cry2(-/- Per2(Luc cells oscillated robustly and expressed a longer period. Co-culturing with wildtype cells did not significantly shorten the period, indicating that coupling among hepatocytes is insufficient to synchronize cells with significantly differing periods. However, spatial patterns revealed by cellular imaging of wildtype cultures provided evidence of weak local coupling among the hepatocytes. CONCLUSIONS: Our results with primary hepatocyte cultures demonstrate that cultured hepatocytes are weakly coupled. While this coupling is not sufficient to sustain global synchrony, it does increase local synchrony, which may stabilize the circadian rhythms of peripheral oscillators, such as the liver, against noise in the entraining signals.

    This study describes the CT findings of changes in the maxillary sinus after the Caldwell-Luc procedure. The maxillary sinus-related findings in 35 cases among 20 patients (17 cases in 10 males and 18 cases in 10 females) who had undergone the Caldwell-Luc procedure mean 14.6 years earlier were reviewed. CT scans were obtained in the axial and coronal planes, with 5mm thickness. By means of the T test, changes in the size of the bony wall of the maxillary sinus, as well as antral volume change, were compared with normal maxillary sinus group (41 male and 23 female cases). Males and females were compared separately, and surgical bony defect of naso-labial antrotomy and nasoantral window, fibro-osseous proliferation, compartmentation and mucosal thickening of the postoperative maxillary sinus were evaluated, as were findings of chronic or recurrent maxillary sinusitis and postoperative complications. Naso-labial antrotomy was clearly identified in 27 of 35 cases, and irregular bony surface in the remaining eight, as were 27 bony defects and one irregular bony margin among a total of 28 cases of nasoantral window. Due to shortening of the height of the orbit, reductions in maxillary width, nasoantral communication width and anteroposterior diameter of the maxilla, and widening of the width of the inferior meatus, the maxillary sinus tended to become hypoplastic and centripetally contracted. Reduced cavitary volume of the maxillary sinus was noted (p less than 0.05), and fibro-osseous proliferation (n=3D29), compartmentation (n=3D11), and mucosal thickening (n=3D22) of the postoperative maxillary sinus were also seen. There were findings of chronic sinusitis (n=3D22), as well as complications of postoperative mucocele (n=3D3) and oroantral fistula (n=3D2) of the maxillary sinus. The characteristic maxillary sinus-related findings seen after the Caldwell-Luc procedure are helpful in distinguishing postoperative change from recurrent paranasal diseases and resulting

    Full Text Available In the novels by Belgian Francophone Jean-Luc Outers, working world has found a productive ground. Indeed, there are plenty professions from politician to researcher, including public administration clerk. Though writer’s work is emphasized, Outers’ novels focus on the absurd administration context, as well as the relation between work and body, space and time. It is with an ironic and tender glance, in an interrogative style which leads to reflection, with poetry, often surreal or fantastic images, but above all with a special humour, comfortable, but mainly with absurd or burlesque, sometimes incisive approach, which causes intelligent laughter, that the author presents us this abstract and asepticised bureaucratic society of ours, where human beings try to survive despite nonsense.

    The clinical features were correlated with the coronal CT scan appearance of the paranasal sinuses of 49 patients who had received the Caldwell-Luc operation 16 to 58 years ago. The clinical diagnosis at the time of the CT scan was postoperative maxillary cyst in 22 patients, chronic sinusitis in 21 patients, trigeminal neuralgia in 3 patients, radicular cyst, postoperative ethmoid cyst and inverted papilloma in one patient each. The CT scans of the 91 operated maxillary sinuses showed obliterated cavity in 21 cases, small cavity in 46 cases, and cystic formation in 24 cases. The authors speculated that some maxillary sinuses which appeared in CT scans as small cavities might cause the clinical symptoms of postoperative maxillary cyst in the future. (author).

  14. THINKING ART, POETRY AND LITERATURE OF PERSPECTIVE BY JEAN-LUC NANCY

    José Oleriano Monteiro Filho

    2010-07-01

    Full Text Available Jean-Luc Nancy, one of the most influential philosophers of today, is part of a group to some extent antagonistic. Marked by Heidegger's phenomenology, for a certain Hegelianism and the grounds of literary criticism of Maurice Blanchot, Nancy is coming from philosophers like Derrida and Philippe Lacoue-Labarthe. He teaches philosophy at the Faculty of Philosophy, Science of Language and Communication at the University of Strasbourg. Author of several works, his thoughts are evoked by quotations from scholarly works in many different areas. In this study, without attempting to exhaust the subject, we will discuss art, poetry and literature in light of the thought of Nancy, also featuring, when needed, the help of other established names.

  15. Do convection-permitting models improve the representation of the impact of LUC?

    Science.gov (United States)

    Vanden Broucke, Sam; Van Lipzig, Nicole

    2016-12-01

    In this study we assess the added value of convection permitting scale (CPS) simulations in studies using regional climate models to quantify the bio-geophysical climate impact of land-use change (LUC). To accomplish this, a comprehensive model evaluation methodology is applied to both non-CPS and CPS simulations. The main characteristics of the evaluation methodology are (1) the use of paired eddy-covariance site observations (forest vs open land) and (2) a simultaneous evaluation of all surface energy budget components. Results show that although generally satisfactory, non-CPS simulations fall short of completely reproducing the observed LUC signal because of three key biases. CPS scale simulations succeed at significantly reducing two of these biases, namely, those in daytime shortwave radiation and daytime sensible heat flux. Also, CPS slightly reduces a third bias in nighttime incoming longwave radiation. The daytime improvements can be attributed partially to the switch from parameterized to explicit convection, the associated improvement in the simulation of afternoon convective clouds, and resulting surface energy budget and atmospheric feedbacks. Also responsible for the improvements during daytime is a better representation of surface heterogeneity and thus, surface roughness. Meanwhile, the modest nighttime longwave improvement can be attributed to increased vertical atmospheric resolution. However, the model still fails at reproducing the magnitude of the observed nighttime longwave difference. One possible explanation for this persistent bias is the nighttime radiative effect of biogenic volatile organic compound emissions over the forest site. A correlation between estimated emission rates and the observed nighttime longwave difference, as well as the persistence of the longwave bias provide support for this hypothesis. However, more research is needed to conclusively determine if the effect indeed exists.

The highly metastatic human breast carcinoma MDA-MB-435s cell line was engineered to stably express herpes simplex virus type 1 thymidine kinase (HSV-1- tk) and luciferase ( luc). Both 131I-FIAU and D-luciferin were used as reporter probes. For orthotopic tumor formation, MDA-MB-435s/ tk-luc cells were implanted into the first nipple of 6-week-old female NOD/SCID mice. For metastatic study, cells were injected via the lateral tail vein. Mice-bearing MDA-MB-435s/ tk-luc tumors were scanned for tumor growth and metastatsis using Xenogen IVIS50 system. Gamma scintigraphy and whole-body autoradiography were also applied to confirm the tumor localization. The results of bioluminescence imaging as well as histopathological finding showed that tumors could be detected in femur, spine, ovary, lungs, kidney, adrenal gland, lymph nodes and muscle at 16 weeks post i.v. injection, and correlated photons could be quantified. This MDA-MB-435s/ tk-luc human breast carcinoma-bearing mouse model combined with multimodalities of molecular imaging may facilitate studies on the molecular mechanisms of cancer invasion and metastasis.

  4. Qual capacidade crítica? Relendo Luc Boltanski à luz de Margaret Archer

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Luiz Augusto Campos

    Full Text Available Resumo A chamada “sociologia da capacidade crítica” de Luc Boltanski vem se tornando um dos principais paradigmas teóricos de interpretação das relações sociais. Contrário ao modo como a sociologia crítica à la Bourdieu entende a reflexividade humana, Boltanski propõe tratar os indivíduos como seres reflexivos, plenamente capazes de julgar e criticar o mundo. No entanto, essa “capacidade crítica” funciona em sua sociologia mais como premissa teórica do que como objeto concreto de investigação. Diante disso, este texto argumenta que uma sociologia interessada na capacidade crítica dos sujeitos não pode apenas “supô-la”, deve constituí-la em objeto de estudo sociológico. Para tal, propõe-se reconceituar a capacidade crítica como competência reflexiva, no sentido dado à expressão pela socióloga inglesa Margaret Archer. O recurso às categorias de Archer não apenas ajuda a identificar os limites da sociologia de Boltanski, mas, sobretudo, permite ampliar o seu alcance.

    Abstract Reporter proteins are essential tools in the study of biological processes and are employed to monitor changes in gene expression and protein levels. Luciferases are reporter proteins that enable rapid and highly sensitive detection with an outstanding dynamic range. Here we evaluated the usefulness of the 19 kDa luciferase NanoLuc (Nluc), derived from the deep sea shrimp Oplophorus gracilirostris, as a reporter protein in yeast. Cassettes with codon‐optimized genes expressing yeast Nluc (yNluc) or its destabilized derivative yNlucPEST have been assembled in the context of the dominant drug resistance marker kanMX. The reporter proteins do not impair the growth of yeast cells and exhibit half‐lives of 40 and 5 min, respectively. The commercial substrate Nano‐Glo® is compatible with detection of yNluc bioluminescence in bioluminescent signal and mRNA levels during both induction and decay. We demonstrated that the bioluminescence of yNluc fused to the C‐terminus of a temperature‐sensitive protein reports on its protein levels. In conclusion, yNluc and yNlucPEST are valuable new reporter proteins suitable for experiments with yeast using standard commercial substrate. © 2016 The Authors.

    Full Text Available Aim The present paper aims at highlithing the new dynamics of comparison and exchange between literature and arts. It assumes the idea of a literature centred on the relations between text and context, bent on exhalting its "social" disposition. Then it deals with the subject of the work's originality in terms of identitary pact constantly renegotiated with works belonging to other semiologic themes. In this perspective, this article briefly investigates the complex relation between Don De Lillo's and Jean-Luc Godard's works.   Methodology The analytic approach moves between comparative literature and cultural criticism, in a very well-known field in the area of traditional literary studies and a very important sector in the structuration of contemporary imaginary: the relation between literature and cinema. The methodology adopted employs the comparative dynamics typical of text semiotcs, to underline exchange categories, among different languages and codes, which prove to be flowing, open and constantly changing.   Results The article highlights and explores new possibilities in the relation between cinema and literature, investigating them on the basis of the present observations on the notion of text; it also explains the urgency of a semantic reassessment of the concept of "work's originality" in the contemporary semiosphere.

    The biomedical field has greatly benefited from the discovery of bioluminescent proteins. Currently, scientists employ bioluminescent systems for numerous biomedical applications, ranging from highly sensitive cellular assays to bioluminescence-based molecular imaging. Traditionally, these systems are based on Firefly and Renilla luciferases; however, the applicability of these enzymes is limited by their size, stability, and luminescence efficiency. NanoLuc (NLuc), a novel bioluminescence platform, offers several advantages over established systems, including enhanced stability, smaller size, and >150-fold increase in luminescence. In addition, the substrate for NLuc displays enhanced stability and lower background activity, opening up new possibilities in the field of bioluminescence imaging. The NLuc system is incredibly versatile and may be utilized for a wide array of applications. The increased sensitivity, high stability, and small size of the NLuc system have the potential to drastically change the field of reporter assays in the future. However, as with all such technology, NLuc has limitations (including a nonideal emission for in vivo applications and its unique substrate) which may cause it to find restricted use in certain areas of molecular biology. As this unique technology continues to broaden, NLuc may have a significant impact in both preclinical and clinical fields, with potential roles in disease detection, molecular imaging, and therapeutic monitoring. This review will present the NLuc technology to the scientific community in a nonbiased manner, allowing the audience to adopt their own views of this novel system.

    The mammalian Per1 gene is an important component of the core cellular clock mechanism responsible for circadian rhythms. The rodent liver and other tissues rhythmically express Per1 in vitro but typically damp out within a few cycles. In the liver, the peak of this rhythm occurs in the late subjective night in an ad lib-fed rat, but will show a large phase advance in response to restricted availability of food during the day. The relationship between this shift in the liver clock and food-anticipatory activity (FAA), the circadian behavior entrained by daily feeding, is currently unknown. Insulin is released during feeding in mammals and could serve as an entraining signal to the liver. To test the role of insulin in the shift in liver Per1 expression and the generation of FAA, per-luciferase transgenic rats were made diabetic with a single injection of streptozotocine. Following 1 week of restricted feeding and locomotor activity monitoring, liver was collected for per-luc recording. In two separate experiments, FAA emerged and liver Per1 phase-shifted in response to daytime 8-h food restriction. The results rule out insulin as a necessary component of this system.

    Novel engineered NanoLuc (Nluc) luciferase being smaller, brighter, and superior to traditional firefly (Fluc) or Renilla (Rluc) provides a great opportunity for the development of numerous biological, biomedical, clinical, and food and environmental safety applications. This new platform created an urgent need for Nluc inhibitors that could allow selective bioluminescent suppression and multiplexing compatibility with existing luminescence or fluorescence assays. Starting from thienopyrrole carboxylate 1, a hit from a 42 000 PubChem compound library with a low micromolar IC50 against Nluc, we derivatized four different structural fragments to discover a family of potent, single digit nanomolar, cell permeable inhibitors. Further elaboration revealed a channel that allowed access to the external Nluc surface, resulting in a series of highly potent cell impermeable Nluc inhibitors with negatively charged groups likely extending to the protein surface. The permeability was evaluated by comparing EC50 shifts calculated from both live and lysed cells expressing Nluc cytosolically. Luminescence imaging further confirmed that cell permeable compounds inhibit both intracellular and extracellular Nluc, whereas less permeable compounds differentially inhibit extracellular Nluc and Nluc on the cell surface. The compounds displayed little to no toxicity to cells and high luciferase specificity, showing no activity against firefly luciferase or even the closely related NanoBit system. Looking forward, the structural motifs used to gain access to the Nluc surface can also be appended with other functional groups, and therefore interesting opportunities for developing assays based on relief-of-inhibition can be envisioned.

  12. Reflecting on the ongoing aftermath of heart transplantation: Jean-Luc Nancy's L'intrus.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Wynn, Francine

    2009-03-01

    This paper explores Jean-Luc Nancy's philosophical reflection on surviving his own heart transplant. In 'The Intruder', he raises central questions concerning the relations between what he refers to as a 'proper' life, that is, a life that is thought to be one's own singular 'lived experience', and medical techniques, shaped at this particular historical juncture by cyclosporine or immuno-suppression. He describes the temporal nature of an ever-increasing sense of strangeness and fragmentation which accompanies his heart transplant. In doing so, Nancy opens up the concealed of transplantation in terms of the problematic 'gift' of a 'foreign' organ, the unremitting suffering intrusiveness of the treatment regimen, and the living of life as 'bare life'. He uncovers and exposes the relentless uncanniness that pervades the post-transplant experience, which for him is an example of our humanistic, never-ending impulse, to alter ourselves. Nevertheless, Nancy offers no answer to this dilemma, but instead calls us to think about the meaning or 'sense' of the prolonging of life and deferring of death, which currently drives our medical interventions.

    Full Text Available Etxebarria foregrounds discussions on the production and consumption of the novelistic enterprise, and she fuels the debate by using gender as kindling. Etxebarria's power of attraction lies in her ability to reside on the edge of the frame of her books, there where the creation of literature meets the dissemination of the book as material object. The question that I examine in this article —«What is all the fuss about?»— provides a comprehensive look at how the author plays with the commercial construction of gender during *, from 1997 to 2003, when she most clearly had to confront the consumptive tensions in the cultural field and mod a position for herself in the contemporary scene of the 1990s.Lucía Etxebarria participa en las discusiones de producción y consumo de su empresa novelística y estimula el debate al usar el género como tipología.

    Full Text Available Pretendemos percorrer, com Jean-Luc Nancy, os principais momentos do processo de construção e desconstrução do cristianismo e do Ocidente, até o seu estado presente, consequência da “morte de Deus” como própria destinação do cristianismo. A desconstrução do cristianismo e, pela mesma ocasião, do Ocidente que se identifica com ele, objetiva reduzi-lo à essência do seu fenômeno. Trata-se do “desenclausuramento” ou da “declosão” recíproca das heranças da religião e da filosofia. Ao longo da história, por um movimento virtualmente infinito, a fé cristã se descobre remetendo a um momento anterior a ela mesma, momento que ela constantemente renova e clareia. Uma das principais tarefas é a desconstrução do monoteísmo.  Com a figura de Cristo, a renúncia ao poder divino e à sua presença torna-se o próprio ato de Deus. A ausência ou o vazio-de-divindade é sua verdade mais profunda. Mostraremos, também, algumas implicações éticas e políticas do processo. Concluiremos com algumas reflexões críticas a respeito do método adotado pelo autor e dos principais resultados do percurso. 

  19. This World Without Another. Jean-Luc Nancy and la Mondialisation

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Diederik Aerts

    2009-01-01

    Full Text Available In this paper, we turn to the philosophy of Jean-Luc Nancy. In his work La Création du Monde ou la Mondialisation of 2002 the French philosopher analyses the process of globalisation. Rather than denoting a new homogeneity, the term refers to a world horizon characterized in its inter-palpable multiplicity of cultural, socio-economical, ideological and politico-moral content. According to Nancy, globalisation refers to ag-glome-ration: the decay of what once was a globe and now nothing more than a glome. On the one hand, Nancy indicates that the world has changed by an unknown increase of techno-science, the worsening of inequalities between growing populations and by the changing and disappearing of given certainties, views and identities of the world and of man. On a large scale, this deformation is due to the relation between the capitalist evolution and the capitalising of worldviews. On the other hand, due to the inter-palpability of the multiplicity, this means that on our planet there is only space for one world. The world gradually becomes the only world. In this paper we will investigate what Nancy means with the becoming-world of the world and how this relates to our being in the world. For Nancy globalisation reveals two possible destinies of our relation with the world. In La Création du Monde ou la Mondialisation he discerns globalisation from mondialisation to analyze these two possibilities. We will investigate this distinction of Nancy and its consequences for everyday life.

Biodistribution of the drug was performed when tumor size reached 500-600 mm 3. The uptakes of 111In-VNB-liposome in tumor and normal tissues/organs at various time points postinjection were assayed. Multimodalities, including gamma scintigraphy, bioluminescence imaging (BLI) and whole-body autoradiography (WBAR), were applied for evaluating the therapeutic efficacy when tumor size was about 100 mm 3. The tumor/blood ratios of 111In-VNB-liposome were 0.044, 0.058, 2.690, 20.628 and 24.327, respectively, at 1, 4, 24, 48 and 72 h postinjection. Gamma scinitigraphy showed that the tumor/muscle ratios were 2.04, 2.25 and 4.39, respectively, at 0, 5 and 10 mg/kg VNB. BLI showed that significant tumor control was achieved in the group of 10 mg/kg VNB ( 111In-VNB-liposome). WBAR also confirmed this result. In this study, we have demonstrated a non-invasive imaging technique with a luciferase reporter gene and BLI for evaluation of tumor treatment efficacy in vivo. The SCID mice bearing HT-29/ luc xenografts treated with 111In-VNB-liposome were shown with tumor reduction by this technique.

    Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women. Although advances in diagnostic imaging for early detection, surgical techniques and chemotherapy have improved overall survival, the prognosis of patients with metastatic breast cancer remains poor. Understanding cancer cell dynamics in the metastatic process is important to develop new therapeutic strategies. Experimental animal models and imaging would be powerful tools for understanding of the molecular events of multistep process of metastasis. In the present study, to develop a new cancer cell line that is applicable to bioluminescence and fluorescence imaging, we transfected the expression vector of a green fluorescent protein ZsGreen1 into a metastatic cell line 5a-D-Luc, which is a subclone of the MDA-MB-231 breast cancer cell line expressing luciferase, and established a new tumor cell line 5a-D-Luc-ZsGreen expressing both luciferase and ZsGreen1. The 5a-D-Luc-ZsGreen cells proliferate more rapidly and have a more invasive phenotype compared with 5a-D-Luc cells following intracardiac injection. Metastasis sites were easily detected in the whole body by bioluminescence imaging and in excised tissues by ex vivo fluorescence imaging. The fluorescence of 5a-D-Luc-ZsGreen cells was not lost after formalin fixation and decalcification. It enabled us to easily evaluate tumor spread and localization at the cellular level in microscopic analysis. The strong fluorescence of 5a-D-Luc-ZsGreen cells allowed for real-time imaging of circulating tumor cells in cerebral blood vessels of live animals immediately after intracardiac injection of cells using two-photon laser-scanning microscopy. These findings suggest that the 5a-D-Luc-ZsGreen cells would be a useful tool for research on mechanisms of metastatic process in animal models.

    Personalmente estoy muy complacido con este acto ya que ella trabaja con nosotros en la Fundación Oftalmológica Nacional que dirijo y en donde ella ha podido desarrollar parte de su trabajo.

    Creo que la importancia de una agrupación científica se valora no tanto por el número de sus miembros cuanto por la calidad y merecimientos de los mismos, características que cumplen y dones que adornan a quienes esta noche hacen su ingreso a la Academia, los doctores Tamayo y Bernal.

    Vale destacar que en la historia de nuestra ya centenaria Academia es la primera mujer médica incorporada como Miembro Correspondiente a la Institución en Bogotá. Es ciertamente honroso ser aceptado en la Academia Nacional de Medicina pero pienso que para la Academia es valioso obtener el concurso de nuevos Miembros de excelentes perspectivas, ojalá investigadores que colaboren y continúen con la labor de otros.

    Infortunadamente no son muchos los investigadores en Colombia y según informes, de 40.000 que debería tener el país, apenas existen 8.000. Tampoco son muchos los investigadores pues las investigaciones no pueden obedecer a simples decretos gubernamentales.

  9. The main work of astronomer Christoph Scheiner SJ "Rosa Ursina sive Sol" - a summary.

    Daxecker, F.

    1996-10-01

    Christoph Scheiner was born on 25 July 1573 or 1575 in Markt Wald near Mindelheim in the Bavarian part of Swabia. He died on 18 July 1650. In Rome he wrote his main work Rosa Ursina sive Sol and had it printed with the help of a patron, Duke Paulus Jordanus II of Bracciano. The ducal family bore a rose, likened to the Sun in Scheiner's book, on its coat of arms. Rosa Ursina is divided into four volumes. In volume I Scheiner tackles the issue of who was first to discover the sunspots; he also proves that Galilei made errors of observation. Volume II shows illustrations of telescopes, projection methods and the helioscope and compares the optics of a telescope with that of the human eye. In volume III, observations on sunspots are illustrated by 70 copper engravings by David Widemann. Volume IV consists of two parts. The first part again deals with the phenomena of the Sun, such as sunspots and prominences, its period of revolution of 27 days, and the tilt of its axis; the second part is a collection of passages and quotations from the Scriptures, from Church Fathers and philosophers, all designed to prove that Scheiner's interpretation of the geocentric system conformed to Catholic doctrine.

    Letters were the central medium of communication in the medical scientific community of the 18th century. Professional as well as personal relationships were established among the various correspondents. These relationships constituted the smallest units of communication which contributed to the regional and international scientific network of the Republic of Letters. A correspondence that grew out of a trusted teacher-student relationship could gain an especially intense character both intellectually and personally. This contribution offers an analysis of an example of just such a correspondence. Lorenz Heister (1683--1758), medical professor at the universities of Altdorf and Helmstedt, and his disciple, Christoph Jacob Trew (1695--1769), who became a renowned physician and natural scientist in Nuremberg, communicated in letters to one another over a span of almost forty years. Their correspondence started as a rather asymmetrical dialogue. Over time, however, Heister and Trew came to meet as equals in almost every field of their competence. Their letters reveal a broad spectrum of scientific, organisational, professional, medical and personal issues which formed the basis of a stable and lasting learned correspondence in the age of Enlightenment.

    Full Text Available Starting from the comparison of three versions (1962, 1997, 2001 of the final part of Patrocleia - the second instalment of the radio adaptation of Homer's Iliad by the English poet Christopher Logue, War Music – I will show the path towards a musical version and an extreme conceptual compression of the Homeric text. War Music, in fact, lives its full potential only in a performative act. Through a stylistic analysis (close reading I will highlight the stages of composition of the episode, and then I will demonstrate that the agony and death of the hero undergo a dramatization that makes Patroclus’ death a theatrical performance under Apollo's direction. Through a close comparison with the Greek text and with the academic translation by Richard Lattimore (1951 I explain in which way Patrocleia aims at the creation of a musical style and epic diction that fit mimetically to the means of oral transmission. This adaptation enters the folds of the Homeric text and amplifies its ambiguities.

Quando qualcuno gli domanda cosa sia il tempo, egli non lo sa, cioè non sa come spiegarlo e gli mancano le parole per esprimere qualcosa che, quando nessuno glielo chiede, egli conosce. Come possiamo esprimere il fluire del tempo? Come possiamo dire il tempo e dar voce a una profonda esperienza cognitiva del divenire e della relazione che noi stabiliamo con esso?

    Digital images of the observations printed in the books "Rosa Ursina sive solis" and "Prodromus pro sole mobili" by Christoph Scheiner as well as the drawings from Scheiner's letters to Marcus Welser are analysed in order to obtain information on positions and sizes of sunspots that appeared before the Maunder minimum. In most cases, the given orientation of the ecliptic is used to set up the heliographic coordinate system for the drawings. Positions and sizes are measured manually on the screen. Very early drawings have no indication of their orientation. A rotational matching using common spots of adjacent days is used in some cases, while in other cases, the assumption of images being aligned with a zenith-horizon coordinate system appeared to be the most probable. In total, 8167 sunspots were measured. A distribution of sunspot latitudes versus time (butterfly diagram) is obtained for Scheiner's observations.

  18. Hand1-Luc embryonic stem cell test (Hand1-Luc EST): a novel rapid and highly reproducible in vitro test for embryotoxicity by measuring cytotoxicity and differentiation toxicity using engineered mouse ES cells.

    The embryonic stem cell test (EST) is a promising alternative method for evaluating embryotoxicity of test chemicals by measuring cytotoxicity and differentiation toxicity using mouse ES cells. Differentiation toxicity is analyzed by microscopically counting the beating of embryonic bodies after 10 days of culture. However, improvements are necessary to reduce the laborious manipulations involved and the time required to obtain results. We have previously reported the successful stable transfection of ES cells (ES-D3) with the heart and neural crest derivatives expressed transcript 1 (Hand1) gene and the establishment of a 96-well multi-plate-based new EST with luciferase reporter assay 6 days after treatment with test chemicals. Now, we propose an even more rapid and easier EST, named Hand1-Luc EST. We established another cell line to monitor the Hand1 gene expression via a luciferase reporter gene. By mRNA analysis and luciferase assay, we examined in detail the luciferase activity during cell differentiation, which allowed us to reduce the time of measurement from day 6 to day 5 (120 hr). Furthermore, the protocol was improved, with, among others, the measurement of cytotoxicity and differentiation toxicity taking place in the same 96-well round bottom plate instead of two different plates. With the positive control, 5-fluorouracil (5-FU), and 9 test chemicals, data with high reproducibility and very low variation (CV < 50%) in the relevant endpoints were obtained. This study shows that the Hand1-Luc EST could provide an accurate and sensitive short-term test for prediction of embryotoxicants by measuring cytotoxicity and differentiation toxicity from the same sample.

  1. C3-Luc Cells Are an Excellent Model for Evaluation of Cellular Immunity following HPV16L1 Vaccination.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Li-Li Li

    Full Text Available C3 and TC-1 are the two model cell lines most commonly used in studies of vaccines and drugs against human papillomavirus (HPV infection. Because C3 cells contain both the HPV16 E and L genes, but TC-1 cells contain only the HPV16 E genes, C3 cells are usually used as the model cell line in studies targeting the HPV16 L protein. However, expression of the L1 protein is difficult to detect in C3 cells using common methods. In our study, Short tandem repeat analysis (STR was used to demonstrate that C3 cells are indeed derived from mice, PCR results show that HPV16 L1, E6 and E7 genes were detected in C3 genomic DNA, and RT-PCR results demonstrated that L1 transcription had occurred in C3 cells. However, the expression of C3 protein was not found in the results of western blot and immunohistochemistry (IHC. Growth and proliferation of C3 were inhibited by mice spleen lymphocytes that had been immunized with a vaccine against HPV16L1. The luciferase gene was integrated into C3 cells, and it was confirmed that addition of the exogenous gene had no effect on C3 cells by comparing cell growth and tumor formation with untransformed cells. Cells stably expressing luciferase (C3-luc were screened and subcutaneously injected into the mice. Tumors became established and were observed using a Spectrum Pre-clinical in Vivo Imaging System. Tumor size of mice in the different groups at various time points was calculated by counting photons. The sensitivity of the animals to the vaccine was quantified by statistical comparison. Ten or 30 days following injection of the C3-luc cells, tumor size differed significantly between the PBS and vaccine groups, indicating that C3 cells were susceptible to vaccination even after tumors were formed in vivo.

We also computed 697 tilt angles of apparently bipolar sunspot groups observed in the period 1618-1631. We find that the average tilt angle of nearly 4 degrees is not significantly different from 20th-century values.

  4. The FF domains of yeast U1 snRNP protein Prp40 mediate interactions with Luc7 and Snu71.

    The FF domain is conserved across all eukaryotes and usually acts as an adaptor module in RNA metabolism and transcription. Saccharomyces cerevisiae encodes two FF domain proteins, Prp40, a component of the U1 snRNP, and Ypr152c, a protein of unknown function. The structure of Prp40, its relationship to other proteins within the U1 snRNP, and its precise function remain little understood. Here we have investigated the essentiality and interaction properties of the FF domains of yeast Prp40. We show that the C-terminal two FF domains of Prp40 are dispensable. Deletion of additional FF domains is lethal. The first FF domain of Prp40 binds to U1 protein Luc7 in yeast two-hybrid and GST pulldown experiments. FF domains 2 and 3 bind to Snu71, another known U1 protein. Peptide array screens identified binding sites for FF1-2 within Snu71 (NDVHY) and for FF1 within Luc7 (phi[FHL] x [KR] x [GHL] with phi being a hydrophobic amino acid). Prp40, Luc7, and Snu71 appear to form a subcomplex within the yeast U1snRNP. Our data suggests that the N-terminal FF domains are critical for these interactions. Crystallization of Prp40, Luc7, and Snu71 have failed so far but co-crystallization of pairs or the whole tri-complex may facilitate crystallographic and further functional analysis.

    The availability of smartphones with high-performance digital image sensors and processing power has completely reshaped the landscape of point-of-need analysis. Thanks to the high maturity level of reporter gene technology and the availability of several bioluminescent proteins with improved features, we were able to develop a bioluminescence smartphone-based biosensing platform exploiting the highly sensitive NanoLuc luciferase as reporter. A 3D-printed smartphone-integrated cell biosensor based on genetically engineered Hek293T cells was developed. Quantitative assessment of (anti)-inflammatory activity and toxicity of liquid samples was performed with a simple and rapid add-and-measure procedure. White grape pomace extracts, known to contain several bioactive compounds, were analyzed, confirming the suitability of the smartphone biosensing platform for analysis of untreated complex biological matrices. Such approach could meet the needs of small medium enterprises lacking fully equipped laboratories for first-level safety tests and rapid screening of new bioactive products.

The deposit was exploited through opencast mining and nowadays it is an environmental liability and a potential source of environmental degradation. Baryte deposits, rusty material from the iron cap overburden, quarries and old exploration holes were characterized. Photo interpretation methods, collection of data on the current environmental condition, detailed geotectonic description of the deposit and surrounding areas, consultation to the experts involved in the project and those with experience on the site, socioeconomic and statistic information of the population, check lists, projects and compared scenarios. Two zones have been identified, one having a serious impact compared to the other one with a lesser impact. Generation of acid drain and the contamination of the waters with high levels of toxicity are among the most significant impact; therefore, one of the actions proposed is treatment of the waters for human consumption for being contaminated with heavy metals.

  8. BRET: NanoLuc-Based Bioluminescence Resonance Energy Transfer Platform to Monitor Protein-Protein Interactions in Live Cells.

    Mo, Xiu-Lei; Fu, Haian

    2016-01-01

    Bioluminescence resonance energy transfer (BRET) is a prominent biophysical technology for monitoring molecular interactions, and has been widely used to study protein-protein interactions (PPI) in live cells. This technology requires proteins of interest to be associated with an energy donor (i.e., luciferase) and an acceptor (e.g., fluorescent protein) molecule. Upon interaction of the proteins of interest, the donor and acceptor will be brought into close proximity and energy transfer of chemical reaction-induced luminescence to its corresponding acceptor will result in an increased emission at an acceptor-defined wavelength, generating the BRET signal. We leverage the advantages of the superior optical properties of the NanoLuc(®) luciferase (NLuc) as a BRET donor coupled with Venus, a yellow fluorescent protein, as acceptor. We term this NLuc-based BRET platform "BRET(n)". BRET(n) has been demonstrated to have significantly improved assay performance, compared to previous BRET technologies, in terms of sensitivity and scalability. This chapter describes a step-by-step practical protocol for developing a BRET(n) assay in a multi-well plate format to detect PPIs in live mammalian cells.

    The c-Myc (MYC) transcription factor is a major cancer driver and a well-validated therapeutic target. However, directly targeting MYC has been challenging. Thus, identifying proteins that interact with and regulate MYC may provide alternative strategies to inhibit its oncogenic activity. Here we report the development of a NanoLuc®-based protein-fragment complementation assay (NanoPCA) and mapping of the MYC protein interaction hub in live mammalian cells.

    Brown algal polysaccharides such as alginate, polymers of uronic acids, and laminaran, beta-1,3 and 1,6-glucan, can be fermented by human intestinal microbiota. To evaluate the effects of these polysaccharides on infections caused by food poisoning pathogens, we investigated the adhesion and invasion of pathogens (Salmonella Typhimurium, Listeria monocytogenes and Vibrio parahaemolyticus) in human enterocyte-like HT-29-Luc cells and in infections caused in BALB/c mice. Both sodium Na-alginate and laminaran (0.1% each) inhibited the adhesion of the pathogens to HT-29-Luc cells by approximately 70-90%. The invasion of S. Typhimurium was also inhibited by approximately 70 and 80% by Na-alginate and laminaran, respectively. We observed that incubation with Na-alginate for 18 h increased the transepithelial electrical resistance of HT-29-Luc monolayer cells. Four days after inoculation with 7 log CFU/mouse of S. Typhimurium, the faecal pathogen count in mice that were not fed polysaccharides (control mice) was about 6.5 log CFU/g while the count in mice that were fed Na-alginate had decreased to 5.0 log CFU/g. The liver pathogen count, which was 4.1 log CFU/g in the control mice, was also decreased in mice that were fed Na-alginate. In contrast, the mice that were fed laminaran exhibited a more severe infection than that exhibited by control mice.

    Full Text Available Christoph Kucklick reconstructs constructions of masculinity around 1800 on the basis of contemporary writings. Utilizing an approach informed by systems theory, he suggests that gender semantics developing at this time are the result of functional differentiation in modern society. He thus sheds new light on the gender debates of the enlightenment and makes visible those, till now unexamined, developmental and motivational correlations to modern masculinity constructions. Kucklick’s assertion to have been the first to uncover the fact that gender discourse in the enlightenment is contingent on new historical doubt toward masculinity, however, is as untenable as his provocative call for the replacement of the power-theoretical approach with the system-theoretical perspective.

    Background and purpose: Today, functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS) is performed in most of the patients with sinonasal inflammatory disease. The postoperative imaging findings of FESS in multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) considerably differ from those of historic Caldwell-Luc (CL) maxillary sinus surgery which is an uncommon procedure today. Thus, the postoperative CL imaging findings may lead to diagnostic confusion and misinterpretation. Therefore, this study explicitly presents the MDCT findings of post-CL patients which have not been described previously. Methods: Twenty-eight patients with clinically suspected sinusitis and documented history of CL-procedure underwent 16 row MDCT (MDCT Mx8000 IDT Philips) with multiplanar reconstructions of the paranasal sinuses in the axial plane. The following parameters were used: 140 kV, 50 mAs; 16 mm x 0.75 mm detector collimation; 1 mm reconstructed slice thickness; 0.5 mm increment. The studies were reconstructed with a bone algorithm (W3000/L600; 1 mm slice thickness) in axial plane and coronal plane (3 mm slice thickness). The images were retrospectively evaluated for the presence of normal surgery-related and pathological findings. Results: Surgery-related imaging characteristics presented as follows: an anterior and a medial bony wall defect and sclerosis and sinus wall thickening were observed in all 28/28 cases (100%). Collaps of the sinus cavity was seen in 26/28 cases (92.9%). Furthermore, inflammatory disease of the operated sinus(es) was found in 23/28 cases (82.1%): 14/28 patients (50%) had inflammatory mucosal thickening of the operated sinus(es) as well as of other sinonasal cavities and 9/28 patients (32.1%) had inflammatory mucosal thickening limited to the operated sinus(es). A postoperative mucocele was depicted in 3/28 cases (10.7%). 2/28 patients (7.1%) showed neither maxillary nor other mucosal swelling. Conclusion: MDCT with multiplanar reconstructions is a precise method to evaluate

    Colorectal carcinoma is a highly prevalent and common cause of cancer in Taiwan. There is still no available cure for this malignant disease. To address this issue, we applied the multimodality of molecular imaging to explore the efficacy of diagnostic and therapeutic nanoradiopharmaceuticals in an animal model of human colorectal adenocarcinoma [colorectal cancer (CRC)] that stably expresses luciferase (luc) as a reporter. In this study, an in vivo therapeutic efficacy evaluation of dual-nanoliposome (100 nm in diameter) encaged vinorelbine (VNB) and {sup 111}In-oxine on HT-29/luc mouse xenografts was carried out. HT-29/luc tumor cells were transplanted subcutaneously into male SCID mice. Multimodality of molecular imaging approaches including bioluminescence imaging (BLI), gamma scintigraphy, whole-body autoradiography (WBAR) and in vivo tumor growth tracing, histopathology and biochemistry/hematology analyses were applied on xenografted SCID mice to study the treatments with 6% polyethylene glycol (PEG) of {sup 111}In-NanoX/VNB-liposomes. In vivo tumor growth tracing and BLI showed that tumor volume could be completely inhibited by the combination therapy with {sup 111}In-VNB-liposomes and by chemotherapy with NanoX/VNB-liposomes (i.e., without Indium-111) (P<.01). The nuclear medicine images of gamma scintigraphy and WBAR also revealed the conspicuous inhibition of tumor growth by the combination therapy with {sup 111}In-VNB-liposomes. Animal body weights, histopathology and biochemistry/hematology analyses were used to confirm the safety and feasibility of radiopharmaceuticals. A synergistic therapeutic effect on CRC xenografted SCID mice was proven by combining an Auger electron-emitting radioisotope (Indium-111) with an anticancer drug (VNB). This study further demonstrates the beneficial potential applications of multimodality molecular imaging as part of the diagnostic and therapeutic approaches available for the evaluation of new drugs and other strategic

If the comparison between the divergent spherical wave and the author’s playwriting is compelling, it may perhaps serve as a method of textual analysis with yet a method with yet unknown playwrights and see if the circularity can be seen as a contemporary trend. We will observe how a central dramatic event will cause a series of growing dramatic earthquakes interrelated by a complex language and an inter-character specific space.

    Rapid detection of the foodborne pathogen Escherichia coli O157:H7 is of vital importance for public health worldwide. Among detection methods, reporter phages represent unique and sensitive tools for the detection of E. coli O157:H7 from food as they are host-specific and able to differentiate live cells from dead ones. Upon infection, target bacteria become identifiable since reporter genes are expressed from the engineered phage genome. The E. coli O157:H7 bacteriophage ΦV10 was modified to express NanoLuc luciferase (Nluc) derived from the deep-sea shrimp Oplophorus gracilirostris. Once infected by the ΦV10 reporter phage, E. coli O157:H7 produces a strong bioluminescent signal upon addition of commercial luciferin (Nano-Glo®). Enrichment assays using E. coli O157:H7 grown in LB broth with a reporter phage concentration of 1.76 × 102 pfu ml−1 are capable of detecting approximately 5 CFU in 7 hours. Comparable detection was achieved within 9 hours using 9.23 × 103 pfu ml−1 of phage in selective culture enrichments of ground beef as a representative food matrix. Therefore we conclude that this NanoLuc reporter phage assay shows promise for detection of E. coli O157:H7 from food in a simple, fast and sensitive manner. PMID:27624517

    Pancreatic tumors are the gastrointestinal cancer with the worst prognosis in humans and with a survival rate of 5% at 5 years. Nowadays, no chemotherapy has demonstrated efficacy in terms of survival for this cancer. Previous study focused on the development of a new therapy by non thermal plasma showed significant effects on tumor growth for colorectal carcinoma and glioblastoma. To allow targeted treatment, a fibered plasma (Plasma Gun) was developed and its evaluation was performed on an orthotopic mouse model of human pancreatic carcinoma using a MIA PaCa2-luc bioluminescent cell line. The aim of this study was to characterize this pancreatic carcinoma model and to determine the effects of Plasma Gun alone or in combination with gemcitabine. During a 36 days period, quantitative BLI could be used to follow the tumor progression and we demonstrated that plasma gun induced an inhibition of MIA PaCa2-luc cells proliferation in vitro and in vivo and that this effect could be improved by association with gemcitabine possibly thanks to its radiosensitizing properties.

    An Escherichia coli arsRp::luc-based biosensor was constructed to measure the bioavailability of arsenic (As) in soil. In previous induction experiments, it produced a linear response (R (2) = 0.96, P bioavailability of arsenic (As) in soil. Per the BCR-SEPs analysis, the application of M and M + NPK led to a significant (P bioavailable As in manure-fertilized (M and M + NPK) soil was significantly higher (P bioavailable As. More significantly, E. coli biosensor-determined As was only 18.46-85.17 % of exchangeable As and 20.68-90.1 % of reducible As based on BCR-SEPs. In conclusion, NKP fertilization was recommended as a more suitable regime in As-polluted soil especially with high As concentration, and this E. coli arsRp::luc-based biosensor was a more realistic approach in assessing the bioavailability of As in soil since it would not overrate the risk of As to the environment.

    Full Text Available In Histoire(s du cinéma, Jean-Luc Godard finally connects his human being’s existence with history of cinema as uncontrollable stream of images, as a system of screens and mirrors that our experience produces and from which it is produced. The image is the nothing’s negation – Godard says – but also the nothing’s gaze on us. Through an omnivorous cinematographic writing, through the exploitation of quotation’s potentiality of movies – made possible only for a director –, Godard prepares a dialectic mechanism of visual power that points out the individual’s endurance versus images and images’endurance versus the individual. Between film-archive and film-museum, Godard manipulates images until to reveal us their secret power structure.

    Dentigerous or follicular cysts of odontogenic origin are innocuous benign cysts that are often linked with the crowns of permanent teeth. A dentigerous cyst circumventing permanent teeth fails to erupt and is often displaced into ectopic positions in the upper and lower jaw in the maxillofacial region. In the maxilla or upper jaw region, the impacted teeth are often displaced and/or shift into the maxillary sinus and apart from the nasal septum, mandibular condyle, coronoid process and the palate, to harbour such ectopic eruptions of teeth. We report a rare case of an impacted left third molar of maxilla, associated with dentigerous cyst. The impacted tooth was embedded in the anterosuperior part of the infratemporal space. The cyst along with the tooth was removed using a modified Caldwell Luc incision.

    Dietary exposure to polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins and dibenzofurans (PCDD/Fs) via fish consumption in two major electronic (e) waste sites: Guiyu (GY), Guangdong Province and Taizhou (TZ), Zhejiang Province, and dioxin-like activity in fish determined by H4IIE-luc bioassay. In the present study, all fish were below EU's maximum allowable concentration in muscle of fish (4 pg WHO-TEQ/g wet wt), except crucian (4.28 pg WHO-TEQ/g wet wt) and silver carps (7.49 pg WHO-TEQ/g wet wt) collected from GY rivers. Moreover, the residual concentration in bighead carp collected from GY (2.15 pg WHO-TEQ/g wet wt) was close to the EU's action level (3 pg WHO-TEQ/g wet wt) which gives "early warning" to the competent authorities and operators to take measures to eliminate contamination. In addition, results indicated that the maximum human intake of PCDD/Fs via freshwater fish consumption in GY was 4.31 pg WHO-TEQ/kg bw/day, which exceeds the higher end of the tolerable daily intake recommended by the WHO, EC-SCF and JECFA (1-4, 2 and 2.3 pg WHO-TEQ/kg bw/day respectively). Furthermore, H4IIE-luc cell bioassay provides a very sensitive and cost-efficient screening tool for assessing the overall dioxin-like toxicity in the study, and is therefore valuable for high-throughput environmental monitoring studies.

    Full Text Available This paper analyzes the concepts of history, memory and forgetfulness in the plays La tragédie du roi Christophe (1970 by Césaire and A Revolta da Casa dos Ídolos (1980 by Pepetela in order to disclose how these works of fiction question and challenge hegemonic history. The study of the stag­ing of memory and history in those plays is based on an articulation of the hermeneutics of literary texts with Stéphane Mosès’s elaboration on the critiques of Benjamin, Rosenzweig and Scholem.

    Aim:To investigate the inhibitory effects of heparin on PC-3M cells proliferation in vitro and B16-F10-luc-G5 cells metastasis in Balb/c nude mice and identify the protein expression patterns to elucidate the action mechanism of heparin.Methods:Human prostate cancer PC-3M cells were incubated with heparin 0.5 to 125 μg/mL for 24 h.The proliferation of PC-3M ceils was assessed by MTS assay.BrdU incoporation and Ki67 expression were detected using a high content screening (HCS) assay.The cell cycle and apoptosis of PC-3M cells were tested by flow cytometry.B16-F10-luc-G5 cardinoma cells were injected into the lateral tail vein of 6-week old male Balb/c nude mice and heparin 30 mg/kg was administered iv 30 min before and 24 h after injection.The metasis of B16-F10-luc-G5 cells was detected by bioluminescence assay.Activated partial thromboplastin time (APTT) and hemorheological parameters were measured on d 14 after injection of B16-F10-luc-G5 carcinoma cells in Balb/c mice.The global protein changes in PC-3M cells and frozen lung tissues from mice burdened with B16-F10-luc-G5 cells were determined by 2-dimensional gel electrophoresis and image analysis.The protein expression of vimentin and 14-3-3 zeta/delta was measured by Western blot.The mRNA transcription of vimentin,transforming growth factor (TGF)-β,E-cadherin,and αv-integrin was measured by RT-PCR.Results:Heparin 25 and 125 μg/mL significantly inhibited the proliferation,arrested the cells in G1 phase,and suppressed BrdU incorporation and Ki67 expression in PC-3M cells compared with the model group.But it had no significant effect on apoptosis of PC-3M cells.Heparin 30 mg/kg markedly inhibits the metastasis of B16-F10-luc-G5 cells on day 8.Additionally,heparin administration maintained relatively normal red blood hematocrit but had no influence on APTT in nude mice burdened with B16-F10-luc-G5 cells.Thirty of down-regulated protein spots were identified after heparin treatment,many of which are related to

    Full Text Available This article seeks to fill a gap in Cuban gender studies. The aim here is to explore, through Ena Lucía Portela’s short story “Una extraña entre las piedras”, how intertextuality is used in recent Cuban lesbian narrative to challenge the monologic and homogeneous positions created in terms of post-revolutionary Cuban subjectivities. By inserting the feminine subjects within a transnational debate, this article claims that Portela will create a fluid identity within a context labelled by Portela herself as “pulp”, a heterogeneity framed by discourses that engage with postmodernism, and feminine writing. This article will prove that although the text itself attempts to defy the parameters of French feminists, it ends up representing them through a metanarrative process, which paradoxically places Portela at the forefront of new gender frameworks in Cuban studies, by giving visibility to the generally absent lesbian body.Este artículo procura llenar un vacío crítico en los estudios cubanos de género.

    Full Text Available The following consideration of Christoph Schlingensief’s production of The Flying Dutchman in Manaus, Brazil, in 2007 is based both on the screening of a documentary film of the performance together with film- and text-based supplementary materials as well as on interviews with members of Christoph Schlingensief’s team who were directly involved. On the one hand, there is the fundamental problem of performance analysis, while on the other hand, there are Schlingen-sief’s multifaceted procedures to be taken into account. In my view this approach comes closer to Christoph Schlingensief’s working method than does an attempt at a congruent retelling, which blurs all differences for the sake of a combined consideration. Schlingensief’s stagings were also created with a fragmentation of perspective, made possible often by a very precise script, the various production ele-ments, and site-specific features used on a par with the action.

  8. The neutral existence as a “saturated phenomenon”: describing the counter-experience of excess with Emmanuel Levinas and Jean-Luc Marion

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Jaime Llorente Cardo

    2015-07-01

    Full Text Available The purpose of the present work is to show that the “there is” or the neuter existence which constitutes one of the most recurrent themes broached by Levinas in his early works of the late forties (De l´evasion, De l´existence à l´existant y Le temps et l´autre belongs thoroughly to the category described by Jean Luc Marion´s phenomenology of giveness under the name of “saturated phenomenon” or “paradox”. In order to make clear such belongingness, the four figures or attributes that define the excess of intuitive giveness are examinated according to their degree of coincidence with the way in which Levinas describes the singular experience of exposition to the neutrality of the existence without existents. This postulated identification between both elements means a potentially productive extension of the phenomenological horizon from the point of view of a possible overcoming of the traditional metaphysics.

    What does music sound like at world’s end? With his Introduction aux ténèbres (Introduction to Darkness, 2009, French composer Raphaël Cendo scores the infinite excess of the end-all, simultaneously foregrounding what he calls the “saturation” and “infrasaturation” of sound. Indeed, his work redefines unfinishedness as that which lies in excess, overriding the creation of the world. This conception of music recalls some of French philosopher Jean-Luc Nancy’s key writings on the matter (most notably Listening, TROP and “De l’œuvre et des œuvres”, which rethink the art of sound as a particularly significant and intense kind of “feeling” or “sense”. More specifically, what is at stake here is the very structure that reflects meaning or sense when it reaches its end—the end of the world—sounding and resounding its way towards a kind of nameless, “godless” resurrection, where the music of darkness is all that’s left.

    Unlike many recent studies on the notion of lifestyle, Christopher Mayes' The Biopolitics of Lifestyle balances theoretical rigour with empirical investigation to problematize the use of lifestyle in public health strategies. Not only does Mayes' book expose the unjustified emphasis on individual autonomy undergirding neoliberal strategies of governance and contemporary ethical theory, it also marks a significant step forward in enhancing our understanding of one of Foucault's most underappreciated concepts, the dispositif. In clearly framing the import of Foucaultian analysis and placing it against the backdrop of the obesity epidemic, Mayes continues his contributions towards a productive space wherein practitioners, social theorists, and ethicists can genuinely and self-reflectively exchange knowledges in order to respond to living issues of ethical import.

  13. Breaking the Gender Binary: Feminism and Transgressive Female Desire in Lucía Etxebarria's Beatriz y los cuerpos celestes and La Eva futura/La letra futura

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Lauren Applegate

    2013-06-01

    Full Text Available The popular texts of Spanish author Lucía Etxebarria have created a polemical social phenomenon in contemporary Spain for their blatant depiction of a world of violence, drugs, and experimental sex of the late-millennium youth culture of Generación X. These topics, along with Etxebarria's public persona and feminist ideology, have fomented much public criticism and given rise to discussion of the current status of feminism, gender norms, and women's authorship in Spain today. This article analyzes Etxebarria's novel Beatriz y los cuerpos celestes and her collection of feminist essays La Eva futura/La letra futura, demonstrating that Etxebarria's depiction of female desire and sexuality within their cultural context challenges the notion that feminism has no more to achieve and breaks the gender binary by imagining a gender-anonymous world. Beatriz delves into the life of the title character, a young woman whose experience with a dissolute social culture and her attempts to understand herself cause her to question stereotypical standards of womanhood and eroticism and to declare that she fits into no such preconceived notions. Beatriz is a literary inscription of Etxebarria's feminist ideology as posited in La Eva futura, insofar as both these texts blur the line between feminism and postfeminism and engage with consumerist culture and identity. Moreover, they construe a philosophy that pushes the boundaries of normative discourse by misciting hegemonic notions of femininity and sexuality and creating the potential for change through such mis-repetition of hegemonic discourse. Ultimately, Etxebarria's work strives for a transgressive, unbound, and fluid female desire that is in continuous reconstruction and defies heteronormative definition.

    2015-06-01

    Full Text Available En el presente artículo presentamos la argumentación que Jean-Luc Marion propone para pensar a Dios sin el Ser. Para ello, emprende una fenomenología de los modos de darse lo divino, a partir de las figuras del ídolo y del icono. Mientras que el ídolo es mentado por la subjetividad a su medida, el icono enfrenta a la subjetividad al modo del rostro y la lleva al desborde de lo infinito. Para Marion, el ídolo conceptual que debemos hoy en día superar para poder liberar la trascendencia y la infinitud de Dios es el ídolo del Ser. Esta dependencia de Dios respecto a su aparecer en el régimen del Ser no puede ser superada dejando de lado sin más la diferencia ontológica, sino que el Ser se libera del juego de la diferencia ontológica en la vanidad. Este cruce del Ser nos llevará a encontrar la preminencia del don sobre el Ser y cómo la caridad libera al Ser y el ente de sus pliegues, y mostrará a Dios en la distancia de su donación. El camino de Marion, sin embargo, presenta algunas dificultades que abordaremos en la conclusión respecto a la posibilidad de entender a Dios desde la articulación entre metafísica, ética y filosofía de la religión.

    2015-01-01

    On the basis of the existing secret sharing schemes based on LUC cryptosystem,this paper proposes a new dynamic multi-secret sharing scheme. The scheme does not need to build secure channel between secret dealer and members,and the members and secrets can be dynamically added and deleted. In the phase of secret recovery,cooperative members only need to submit shadow shares for designated combiner,and the verifier can verify the validity of shadow shares publicly. Thus the system does not need renew secret shares in sharing multiple secrets and multi-group multi-secret. The security of the scheme is proved in the random oracle model, under assumption of the discrete logarithm problem,the result shows that this scheme is semantic security, and in the aspect of calculation, security, the overall performance is superior to the traditional secret sharing scheme.%在现有基于LUC密码体制的秘密共享方案基础上,提出一种新的动态多秘密共享方案。该方案无需在秘密分发者与成员之间建立安全信道,就能对成员和秘密进行动态添加或删除。在秘密重构过程中,合作成员只需向指定生成者提交影子份额,且验证者可对影子份额进行公开验证,从而使得系统无需更新成员的秘密份额即可实现一次性共享多个秘密和多组秘密。通过随机预言机模型对该方案进行验证,结果表明,在离散对数问题的假设下该方案是语义安全的,并且在计算量、安全性、总体性能方面均优于传统秘密共享方案。

    This book captures the complex world of planetary moons, which are more diverse than Earth's sole satellite might lead you to believe. New missions continue to find more of these planetary satellites, making an up to date guide more necessary than ever.  Why do Mercury and Venus have no moons at all? Earth's  Moon, of course, is covered in the book with highly detailed maps. Then we move outward to the moons of Mars, then on to many of the more notable asteroid moons, and finally to a list of less-notable ones. All the major moons of the gas giant planets are covered in great detail, while the lesser-known satellites of these worlds are also touched on.  Readers will learn of the remarkable trans-Neptunian Objects – Pluto, Eris, Sedna, Quaoar –including many of those that have been given scant attention in the literature. More than just objects to read about, the planets' satellites provide us with important information about the history of the solar system.

    Hepatic veno-occlusive disease (HVOD) is rarely encountered and easily misjudged as Budd-Chiari syndrome. It is often related to stem cell transplantation in recent years. We report a case of HVOD that is related to ingestion of some palatable local dishes. The diagnosis was confirmed by liver biopsy pathology with specific observation of inflammatory changes and fibrosis of venules intima, dilated sinusoids and central veins.Chronic diarrhea is unique for this case as a result of ingesting harmful stuffs. This case demonstrated that supervision and instruction of food recipe and traditional medicine are crucial, and prompt diagnosis, supportive care and specific treatment are essential to decreasing the morbidity and mortality of HVOD.

    2004-01-01

    The biting midge, Culicoides paolae Boorman, described from specimens collected in the extreme south of Italy in 1996, belongs in the subgenus Drymodesmyia. This subgenus was erected by Vargas in 1960 for the so-called Copiosus species group, an assemblage of 22 species endemic to the tropical regions of the New World and, where known, breed in vegetative materials including the decaying leaves (cladodes) and fruits of Central American cacti. The Mexican peoples have utilised these cacti for over 9,000 years; one of these, Opuntia ficus-indica Linnaeus, was brought to Europe by Christopher Columbus following his voyages of discovery. As a taxon C. paolae is very similar to the Central American C. jamaicensis Edwards, 1922 raising the possibility that it (or a closely related species of Drymodesmyia) was introduced into the Mediterranean Region at the time of Columbus, but was (perplexingly) discovered only 500 years later and named C. paolae. The comparison of Sardinian specimens of C. paolae with Panamanian material of C. jamaicensis (housed in the Natural History Museum in London) confirmed the two species to be very similar but unusual differences were noted around the precise distribution of the sensilla coeloconica on the female flagellum. Until it is understood whether these differences represent either intra- or interspecific variation, the question of the possible synonymy of C. paolae must be held in abeyance.

    Full Text Available Abstract – The main aim of this research is to provide an analysis of the Italian translation of the poetry of Lucia Sánchez Saornil, the only female author of the Spanish Ultraist movement, combining the theory of poetic translation with gender studies in translation. The translated poems that I analyze in this article are my own translation of Sánchez Saornil’s work. These translations are still in progress for a future publication. The stated goal is to find a middle way between the radical strategies outlined by the Canadian feminist movement during the Eighties (cf. Diaz- Diocaretz 1985, Hannay 1985 , Chamberlain 1988, 1998 , 1990 Godard, Lotbiniere - Harwod 1991, Von Flotow 1991 1994, 1997, 1998, Simons 1996, and the translation techniques that are required to recreate the features of a poem without betraying the style and aesthetics of the author (cf. Holmes 1969, 1978, Lefevere techniques 1975, Popovic 1976 Beaugrande 1978, Etkind 1982, Raffel 1988. Moreover, I will analyse the perspectives opened by the great feminist challenge in translation, and the role of literature and translation in the rise of a new sensitivity in the female question.Keywords: translation, poetry, feminist translation theories, gender studies, Avant-garde. Resumen – Esta investigación pretende ofrecer un análisis de la traducción al italiano de la obra poética de Lucía Sánchez Saornil, única representante femenina del Ultraísmo, combinando las técnicas propias de la traducción poética con los estudios de género en traductología.

    Full Text Available A riqueza do debate ocorrido entre os filósofos Luc Ferry e Marcel Gauchet, em janeiro de 1999, deu origem a este artigo, em que os autores exploram os temas e as questões discutidas naquela ocasião. O artigo apresenta as diferentes posições dos dois pensadores franceses, cuja preocupação maior é pensar as condições de possibilidade da religião e do religioso nos tempos atuais. Tempos em que, segundo os debatedores, predomina a individualização da crença e nos quais a presença de uma religiosidade sempre mais inquieta, difusa e incerta convive com o enfraquecimento institucional das religiões. Longe de desaparecer num universo cada vez mais laicizado, o religioso, como indagação sobre o sentido último da vida ou como aspiração ao absoluto, tende a permanecer como um substrato insuperável. Como, então, pensar o religioso após a religião? O texto apresenta as diferentes e divergentes posições de Ferry e Gauchet acerca da pertinência do uso de termos clássicos como "sagrado", "divino", "transcendente", dentre outros, para tratar os constituintes dessa religiosidade contemporânea e inquieta, própria de uma época na qual se torna impossível a edificação de um mundo de parte a parte estruturado pela religião e na qual o religioso impregnaria todos os setores da vida pública e privada.

  7. Shooting History: An interview with Swiss artist Christoph Draeger about the re-enactment of terrorism in his video installation Black September (2002

    Full Text Available This contribution introduces to the video installation Black September (2002 by Swiss artist Christoph Draeger and presents statements of the artist given in an interview in 2012. Draeger collects media representations of disasters in order to reconfigure their inherent sensationalism later in his artworks. The video installation Black September consists of appropriated footage from a documentary movie and video sequences from a re-enactment of the historical events of September 5th 1972, the terrorist attack during the 20th Olympic Games in Munich. Even the artist himself gets involved in the play in his mimikry of a hostage-taker and terrorist. Thus he questions the conditions of the mutual constitution of cultural memory and collective memory. His video installation creates a “counter image” in reaction to the “omnipresent myth of terrorism”, generated by the tragedy of 9/11 and the media reports in its aftermath. Both terrorist attacks, in Munich 1972 and in New York 2001, mark a turning point in the visual dominance of terrorism. In the case of September 11th, the recurring images of the airplane-attacks and the explosion of the WTC, followed by its collapsing, symbolize the legacy of the “terror of attention”, that would affect every spectator. The video questions the limits of the “disaster zone” in fictional reality and mass media. The artwork re-creates central scenes of the event in 1972. It brings the terrorist action close to the spectator through emersive images, but technically obtains a critical distance through its mode of reflection upon the catastrophe.The installation Black September stimulates and simulates history and memory simultaneously. It fills the void of a traumatic narrative and tries to recapture the signs that have been unknown yet.

    Full Text Available The project of discovering America by Christopher Columbus is an enterprise of Modernity, understood as the modern mentality displayed in the capitalist system. Even though Columbus lived during the Renaissance period, the mentality carried in his project is closer to some modern philosophers such as Descartes and Hobbes, who from rationality and individualism constitute a change of time. The hypothesis that Columbus is a modern person is sustained with evidence in the reasons he explained to defend his project from the Spanish court and especially the final agreement, "the capitulation", in which rationality and individualism took precedence over divine or medieval considerations. The rationalist mentality of Columbus prefigures that from modern businessman who does not stitch without thimble.El descubrimiento de América, impulsado por Cristóbal Colón, es una empresa  de la Modernidad, entendida esta como la mentalidad moderna desplegada en el sistema capitalista. Si bien es cierto que Colón, por la época en que vivió, se ubica  dentro del Renacimiento, la mentalidad con que fue llevada a cabo su iniciativa está más cerca de modernos como Descartes y Hobbes, quienes, a partir de la racionalidad y el individualismo, configuran un cambio de época. La hipótesis de que Colón es un moderno se sustenta con muchas evidencias en las razones que construyó para defender su proyecto ante la corte española y especialmente en el acuerdo final, “la capitulación”, en donde la racionalidad y el individualismo priman sobre consideraciones divinas o medievales. La mentalidad racionalista de Colón prefigura la del empresario moderno que no da puntada sin dedal.

Both works revolve around similar types of scenes, with obscure narratives in which characters are seen in forced meetings with military officials or civil accomplices. The characters’ voices, bodies, gestures, and silences testify to some private and frustrating search, controlled by the drastic changes that dominated Argentine society in the late 20th century.

    In the middle of the eighteenth century, Carl von Linné, Johann Christoph Gatterer, and Christian Wilhelm Büttner attempted to realize the old idea of deciphering the alphabet of the world, which Francis Bacon had raised as a general postulate of science. This article describes these attempts and their interrelations. Linné used the model of the alphabet to classify plants according to the characters of this fruiting body. Gatterer, one of the leading German historians during the Enlightenment, adopted the botanical method of classification by genus and species to classify the history of scripts. He used the forms of the alphabetic characters to measure the age of manuscripts and to map the process of history as a genealogy of culture. Gatterer collaborated closely with Büttner, the first Göttingen professor of natural history. Büttner constructed a general alphabet of languages which connected the phonetics of language with the historically known alphabets. Early on, diplomatics and ethnography combined the natural order of natural history and the cultural order of the alphabet with the attempt to register development and to document development by the evolution of forms. Based on the shared model of the alphabet and on the common necessity to classify their empirical material, natural history and the description of culture were related attempts in the middle of the eighteenth century to comprehend the alphabetically organized nature and a naturally ordered culture.

    The medical institutions of Nuremberg were established quite early. The Collegium medicum were already founded in 1592. Though this board held responsibility for the supervision of pharmacies, the creation of Medizinalordnungen (medical legislations) and also had advisory functions, the physicians did not succeed in winning a prominent position. The spheres of competence between the different groups of medical practitioners were not yet clearly defined. Nevertheless the daily work of the practitioner Johann Christoph Götz (1688-1733) was going smoothly due to his cooperation with other doctors, surgeons, midwives and pharmacists.

    1997-10-01

    Full Text Available opresente ensaio oferece uma exegese crítica dos sete livros que, até o final de 1997, o teórico e crítico britânico Christopher Norman dedicou ao pós-modernismo, considerando-se que a temática de Norris é a teoria pósmodernista, não os artefatos culturais ou processos pósmodernistas pelos quais ele demonstra pouco interesse. Nessa trajetória, são entrelaçados os fios de diversas questões: o entendimento de Norris do pós-modernismo; as objeções que ele faz à teoria pós-modernista; o teor de sua discordância de pensadores como Baudrillard com relação à Guerra do Golfo; a nota de desalento que pauta sua visão do pós-modernismo; o impacto do contexto político de direita de Margaret Thatcher sobre sua visão pessimista dos intelectuais pós-modernistas no início da década. Sobretudo, o ensaio rastreia a crítica reiterada de Norris à excessiva extensão conferida à lingüística saussureana, na sua opinião, a raiz de um mal-elaborado "relativismo cultural", bem como seu amplo comentário sobre o afastamento de Michel Foucault do pensamento de Kant. Norris crê que esse encontro ilustra, de forma exemplar, o afastamento pós-modernista dos valores iluministas de verdade, crítica e razão universal, cujo corolário, para ele, é a eliminação de qualquer vinculação, baseada em princípios, entre a prática intelectual e o domínio ético-político. O ensaio oferece, paralelamente, um número de críticas a Norris (inclusive seu hábito de processar diversas posições numa máquina teórica abstrata e imperdoável, aiJ ressaltar as muitas alternativas à teoria pós-modernista que ele explora (filosofias pós-analíticas do significado, filosofia da ciência, realismo causal, a desconstrução de Derrida e de Man.

    Two new species of thelastomatid nematodes parasitic in the hindgut of cockroaches are described. Hammerschmidtiella keeneyi n. sp. is described from a laboratory colony of Diploptera punctata (Eschscholtz, 1822) from a facility in Ohio, U. S. A. This species is characterized by having females with a short tail and males smaller than those described from other species. The new species also differs from others in the genus by a number of differing measurements that indicate a distinct identity, including esophageal, tail, and egg lengths as well as the relative position of the excretory pore. Blattophila peregrinata n. sp. is described from Periplaneta australasiae (Fabricius, 1775) and Pycnoscelus surinamensis (Linnaeus, 1758) in a greenhouse from Ohio, U.S.A. and from wild P. surinamensis in southern Florida, U.S.A. This species differs from others in the genus by having a posteriorly directed vagina, vulva in the anterior third of the body, no lateral alae in females, and eggs with an operculum. In P. surinamensis from southern Florida, an additional species, Severianoia annamensis Van Luc & Spiridonov, 1993 was found and did not co-parasitize the host with B. peregrinata n. sp. Blattophila peregrinata n. sp. and S. annamensis also occur in the Galápagos Islands, Ecuador, indicating that these have a widespread global range.

Methods Growth curve, scanning electron microscope (SEM) and colony-forming units (CFU) counts were used to investigate the metabolic status of the reporter strain and the wide type of S.mutans growing as either in a planktonic culture or in a biofilm community . The fluorescence activity of this reporter strain was also measured. Results Growth curves and CFU counts of the reporter strain and the wide type of S.mutans were similar. There was no significant difference between the 4, 12 and 24 h biofilm of the reporter strain and the wide type of S.mutans by SEM. The fluorescence expression of the report strain was steady from exponential phase to stationary phases . The RLU reflected the amount of live S.mutans. Conclusions The growth abilities of the reporter strain were similar with the wide type of S.mutans. And the fluorescence activity of this reporter strain was stable . All of these results suggested that the reporter strain could be used to probe the metabolic status of S.mutans and response of S.mutans to antimicrobial agents instead of the wild type .%目的:探讨本课题组前期所构建的变异链球菌(S.mutans)ldh-luc荧光报告株在浮游态及生物膜状态下的活性及代谢状态的有效性,为探讨抗菌剂对多菌种生物膜中S.mutans的作用提供研究基础。方法采用生长曲线、扫描电子显微镜、活菌菌落计数等方法研究浮游态及生物膜状态下S.mutans ldh-luc荧光报告株的生长活性及代谢状态,并测定荧光报告株的荧光活性。结果 S.mutans ldh-luc荧光报告株和野生株生长趋势一致,生物膜内可培养活菌数无差别(4h:F=2.13,P>0.05;12 h:F=1.45,P >0.05;24

    Within healthcare settings, HIV-related stigma is a recognized barrier to access of HIV prevention and treatment services and yet, few efforts have been made to scale-up stigma reduction programs in service delivery. This is in part due to the lack of a brief, simple, standardized tool for measuring stigma among all levels of health facility staff that works across diverse HIV prevalence, language and healthcare settings. In response, an international consortium led by the Health Policy Project, has developed and field tested a stigma measurement tool for use with health facility staff. Experts participated in a content-development workshop to review an item pool of existing measures, identify gaps and prioritize questions. The resulting questionnaire was field tested in six diverse sites (China, Dominica, Egypt, Kenya, Puerto Rico and St. Christopher & Nevis). Respondents included clinical and non-clinical staff. Questionnaires were self- or interviewer-administered. Analysis of item performance across sites examined both psychometric properties and contextual issues. The key outcome of the process was a substantially reduced questionnaire. Eighteen core questions measure three programmatically actionable drivers of stigma within health facilities (worry about HIV transmission, attitudes towards people living with HIV (PLHIV), and health facility environment, including policies), and enacted stigma. The questionnaire also includes one short scale for attitudes towards PLHIV (5-item scale, α=0.78). Stigma-reduction programmes in healthcare facilities are urgently needed to improve the quality of care provided, uphold the human right to healthcare, increase access to health services, and maximize investments in HIV prevention and treatment.

    Abstract: African Art in Transit is a great book which was written by Christopher B. Steiner. He is an American famous art anthropologist. The book is on African art especially on the West African art object. Stein described the complicated relationship around African art in transit and the capital penetration through the Art Object in detail. He questions the "authenticity ". In this book, we can know the westerner's cultural expectation and colonial memory to the Africa. From this book, we can also understand the identity conflict excited in Africa. In the transit, The Decontextualization of Art Object is achieved by the Mediation of knowledge. The "Art Objects" is changed to "Art" in the transit.%《流通中的非洲艺术》是美国艺术人类学家克里斯托弗·斯坦纳关于非洲艺术的杰作。它展现了流通中的非洲艺术中出现的种种社会现象,详细描述了资本通过艺术物品流通渗透的过程,并提出了原真性的问题。其隐形的文本中透出西方对于非洲的文化想象与殖民记忆,同时,亦体现了非洲本土人民在全球化时代身份认同的丢失。文章再现了在流通中的非洲艺术物品的"脱境"过程,从原住民的"物"而成为西方"艺术"的流通之旅,凸显了"知识介质"在流通之中的力量。

  13. A Crítica da Economia Política e a Nova Dialética: Marx, Hegel e o Problema da Tese da Homologia de Christopher J. Arthur

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Elena Louisa Lange

    2017-02-01

    Full Text Available Nos últimos anos, a Nova Dialética de Christopher J. Arthur tem tido um forte impacto sobre os estudos de Marx no mundo anglófono, destacando a correlação da dialética sistemática de Hegel (não histórica com a obra central de Marx, O Capital, e, especialmente, na teoria de Marx da forma de valor. Ele afirma que as categorias da Lógica de Hegel e aquelas do início de O Capital de Marx mostram uma homologia impressionante [...] à luz de algum trabalho de reconstrução menor. (Arthur, 2004, p. 4. Este ensaio critica a leitura de Arthur de Marx e, especialmente, de Hegel contra o background das importantes contribuições para os estudos de Hegel das últimas décadas. Estes estudos foram pioneiros na teoria da dialética e na teoria das categorias, na sistematização da estrutura antinômica do conceito e o problema do pressuposto semântico-pragmático (semantisch-pragmatischer Präsuppositionsbegriff da exposição científica. Não obstante o seu caráter fundamental para um tratamento erudito e para a compreensão da dialética de Hegel, essas abordagens estão ausentes na intervenção de Arthur. Isto, como será mostrado, tem graves consequências para 1 a leitura de Arthur da Lógica de Hegel, 2 a aplicação de Arthur da dialética de Hegel para a apresentação da forma de valor de Marx e 3 a suprassunção de Marx em Hegel desenvolvida por Arthur. Será argumentado que o não-reconhecimento de Arthur do método dialético de Hegel também afeta negativamente o entendimento de Arthur do escopo e intenção do projeto crítico de Marx, especialmente a necessária relação interna entre trabalho abstrato, valor e dinheiro no início de O Capital vol. 1.

  6. 一个天主教文化史学家的世界历史观--评道森的《世界历史的动力》%A Catholic Cultural Historian’s Approach to World History:Review on Christopher Dawson’s Dynamics of World History

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    武可

    2015-01-01

    Almost all great 20th century thinkers have relfected on one or both of the two key topics of their age: the secularization of the modern world and the evils of modernity experienced during two world wars. Christopher Dawson, a Catholic historian, and author of many books on religion, culture and history, has tried to offer a Catholic perspective on these difficult topics. Although he represents the more conservative ideas that preceded the Second Vatican Council, and his writings carry a strong apologetic for the Christian Church, one can see clearly in his works an effort to balance the need to respond to a changing society and to hold fast to one’s faith tradition. For Dawson, Christian culture constitutes one of the foundations of western civilization, and one of the dynamics of world history. This article is a review of Dawson’s bookDynamics of World History but extends its analysis to a broader cultural and historical setting, commenting on contributions and weakness of Dawson’s methodology and historical views. The tension between culture and religion, tradition and modernity, change and preservation is a challenge to each age and society, and Dawson’s thought and methodology may provide critical insight for our thinking today.

    Editorial Commentary:Christopher Dede is a professor in learning technologies at the graduate school of education of Harvard University. He is also a member of the national educational technology expert committee, who participated in writing the national educational technology plan of year 2010.His research spans emerging technologies for learning, infusing technology into large-scale educational improvement initiatives, developing policies that support educational transformation, and providing leadership in educational innovation. He is currently conducting funded studies to develop and assess learning environments based on virtual worlds, augmented realities, transformed social interaction, and online teacher professional development. Dede is a leader in mobile learning initiatives and has developed a widely used framework for scaling up educational innovations. He is the PI of several projects sponsored by the national science foundation, such as EcoXPT and EcoMOBILE. One of his papers has been published on the world rank-top journal of Science. In this interview, Dede talked about his understandings of several key topics, including the connation of educational transformation using technology, the technology integration in teaching, neomillennial learning styles, future learning, multi-users virtual environment, the scalability of educational innovation, and digital teaching platform. He indicated that:(1) we should take a socio-technical approach to analyze and use technology in transforming education;(2) there are three levels of technology infrastructure/integration that help to describe the extent to which technologies are used to transform teaching and learning environments;(3)the next-generation learning shaped by technologies have three obvious characteristics:immersive and richly contextualized, ubiquitous, and personalized;(4) MUVEs can enhance education in at least three ways:by enabling multiple perspectives, situated learning, and transfer;(5

    Full Text Available Este artículo procura establecer lo rasgos distintivos de los tres estadios de la reducción erótica formulada por J.-L. Marion en contraste con la reducción epistémica al cogito y la reducción ontológica al ser. En primer lugar, en la búsqueda de una seguridad que involucra al otro, la autocerteza del cogito es reemplazada por la pregunta: "¿se me ama de otra-parte?". En segundo lugar, como esta pregunta no puede ser respondida recurriendo al amor a sí mismo, se impone una formulación radicalizada: "¿puedo amar, yo el primero?". Este nuevo estadio da lugar al análisis de fenómenos en que cada participante da al otro lo que no tiene de suyo y al mismo tiempo tiene a su disposición solo para ofrecerlo al otro, esto es, el significado, la carne, el juramento, el gozo, la fidelidad, y el adiós=a Dios. En tercer lugar, puesto que esta lógica del amor muestra la prioridad del otro, se presenta la formulación final de la reducción erótica: "¡Tú, tú has amado el primero!". Marion sostiene que, a través de esta precedencia, se revela el amor de Dios. Una apreciación final de las contribuciones de Marion esboza superposiciones y contrastes con otras posiciones fenomenológicas.This article sets out to establish the distinctive traits of the three stages of the erotic reduction advanced by J.-L. Marion in contrast to the epistemic reduction to the cogito and the ontological reduction to Being. First, in the search for an assurance involving the other, the self-certainty of the cogito is replaced by the question "¿Am I loved from elsewhere?". Second, as the question cannot be answered by the way of self-love, a radicalized formulation must be given: "¿Can I love as the first one?" This new stage brings forth the analysis of phenomena in which each partner gives the other what he does not have on his own and at the same time has at his disposal only to offer it to the other, i.e., meaning, flesh, pledge, joy, faithfulness, and good-by=God be with you. Third, as this logic of love discloses the priority of the other, a final formulation of the reduction is afforded: "¡You, you have loved as the first one!" Marion contends that, through this precedence, God's love is revealed. A final assessment of Marion's contributions outlines overlappings and contrasts with other phenomenological positions.

    To improve skin flap healing, one promising strategy in reconstructive surgery might be to optimize platelet rich plasma (PRP) bioactivity and the ischemia-altered expression of genes. We studied both the effect of PRP on ischemic flaps, and whether in vivo bioluminescence imaging (BLI) is a suitable method for the longitudinal monitoring of angiogenesis in surgical wounds. Axial murine skin flaps were created in four experimental groups. In vivo measurements of VEGFR2 expression levels were made every other day until the 14th day. The local VEGF level and microvessel density were quantified on the 14th day via ELISA and immunohistochemistry, and flap survival rates were measured. We demonstrated that PRP and induced ischemia have a beneficial influence on angiogenesis and flap healing. Combining the two resulted in a significantly robust increase in angiogenesis and flap survival rate that was corroborated by bioluminescence imaging of VEGFR2 activity. This study shows that angiogenic effects of PRP may be potentialized by the stimulus of induced ischemia during free flap harvesting, and thus the two procedures appear to have a synergistic effect on flap healing. This study further demonstrates that BLI of modulated genes in reconstructive surgery is a valuable model for longitudinal in vivo evaluation of angiogenesis.

    In this case study the energy efficiency and saving potential of electrical drive systems and lighting for a small or middle-sized company producing mechanical precision parts are shown. The most significant contribution to the overall consumption is caused by the compressed air system. Based on detailed measurements, different types of losses are evaluated, and this allows a good estimate of the savings achievable by a reduction of the number of switching cycles. Savings can also be achieved by means of simple actions such as minimizing air leaks and pressure or switching off in case of idling. An important factor is the adaption of the compressor size to the demand requirements. The second dominating group consists in the machine tools. Compared to the machining power their stand-by losses are considerable. Significant savings can only be achieved by switching them off during idling time periods. Up to 30% of the lighting electricity consumption can be saved by introducing an optimized lighting concept: modern fluorescent tubes with electronic ballasts and high efficient reflectors. Lighting consumes about 10% of the total electricity consumption. (author)

  12. What’s in a song: the case of Christopher Nolan’s Inception

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Jacqueline Waeber

    2013-12-01

    In Inception, one of these things — indeed, the most important of all — is not an object defined by its tactile materiality, but the fragment of a song: Edith Piaf’s 1960 recording of “Non, je ne regrette rien.” In this essay, I argue that Inception privileges a haptic treatment of this aural fragment in order to present the song as thing. While this song may be replete with pre-existing connotations that could potentially impact on the audience’s perception, its reduction to a brief fragment renders the meaning of its inter-textual potentialities illegible, but also singles out its sonic fabric in the aural foreground. Thus the paradoxical choice of a “vintage” recording that literally clashes with the glossy artificiality of the visual treatment (from objects to actors themselves. Although located at the purely aural level, the song fragment nevertheless resonates with Nolan’s well-known claim to anchor his visual effects in “real life” by giving them a “realistic style of patina”.

    Abstract \\'Wikification of GIS by the masses\\' is a phrase-term first coined by Kamel Boulos in 2005, two years earlier than Goodchild\\'s term \\'Volunteered Geographic Information\\'. Six years later (2005-2011), OpenStreetMap and Google Earth (GE) are now full-fledged, crowdsourced \\'Wikipedias of the Earth\\' par excellence, with millions of users contributing their own layers to GE, attaching photos, videos, notes and even 3-D (three dimensional) models to locations in GE. From using Twitter in participatory sensing and bicycle-mounted sensors in pervasive environmental sensing, to creating a 100,000-sensor geo-mashup using Semantic Web technology, to the 3-D visualisation of indoor and outdoor surveillance data in real-time and the development of next-generation, collaborative natural user interfaces that will power the spatially-enabled public health and emergency situation rooms of the future, where sensor data and citizen reports can be triaged and acted upon in real-time by distributed teams of professionals, this paper offers a comprehensive state-of-the-art review of the overlapping domains of the Sensor Web, citizen sensing and \\'human-in-the-loop sensing\\' in the era of the Mobile and Social Web, and the roles these domains can play in environmental and public health surveillance and crisis\\/disaster informatics. We provide an in-depth review of the key issues and trends in these areas, the challenges faced when reasoning and making decisions with real-time crowdsourced data (such as issues of information overload, "noise", misinformation, bias and trust), the core technologies and Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) standards involved (Sensor Web Enablement and Open GeoSMS), as well as a few outstanding project implementation examples from around the world.

    Full Text Available Pese a que los trabajos de Schmidt-Nowara y de Langhorne hacen referencia a muchos aspectos de carácter específico y concreto, también dan pie a una serie de comentarios de índole mucho más general, al igual que ocurre con el tema global de este simposio. Este breve comentario se centrará en alguno de esos temas más amplios que suscita la lectura de las dos ponencias en cuestión, si bien se ocupará igualmente de algunos de los aspectos más concretos que en ellas se plantean. Aunque con matices divergentes, ambas ponencias podrían calificarse de postcoloniales. El trabajo de Schmidt-Nowara asume tal perspectiva de manera abierta y la formula teóricamente, mientras que el de Langhorne lo hace de forma menos explícita. Contemplados desde la perspectiva del actual cambio de siglo, resulta evidente que las grandes potencias de hace cien años, con su extensión territorial relativamente pequeña y sus grandes imperios coloniales, fracasaron en su intento de perpetuar su pujanza geopolítica. No cabe duda de que, durante buena parte de la segunda mitad de nuestro siglo, las grandes potencias mundiales han sido dos estados dotados de una gran extensión territorial continua. Aparentemente, las posesiones ultramarinas, por más que hayan podido resultar de utilidad a corto plazo, han reportado pocos beneficios a la larga.

    BACKGROUND: Occupational psychologists have identified three factors important in motivating physicians: financial reward, academic recognition, time off. AIM: To assess motivators among gastroenterology (GI) trainees. METHODS: A questionnaire was distributed to GI trainees to assess their motivators: (1) work fewer hours for less lucrative rate, (2) reduction in salary\\/increase in hours for academic protected time, and (3) work longer hours for higher total salary, but less lucrative hourly rate. RESULTS: Overall, 61 trainees responded; 52% of trainees would work shorter hours for less lucrative rate; 60% would accept a disproportionate reduction in salary\\/increase in hours for academic protected time; 54% would work longer hours for more money but less lucrative rate. Most trainees (93%) accepted at least one scenario. CONCLUSIONS: Most GI trainees are willing to modify their job description to align with their personal values. Tailoring job descriptions according to these values can yield economic benefits to GI Divisions.

The Higgs boson is a particle that interacts with others, giving them mass. The long and painstaking search for this elusive particle finally bore fruit in July this year – but only one in 10 billion collisions in the LHC produces a Higgs boson. Worse still – no sooner is it produced than it vanishes again and is replaced by other, run-of-the-mill particles. You might ask: “what on earth can we learn from the discovery of a new particle?” Quite a lot, as it happens. It might explain why matter dominates antimatter in the Universe, o...

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Thomas Link

    2006-01-01

    Full Text Available This book deals with the following questions: When and where do children use the Internet? What search strategies do they deploy? What difficulties do they encounter when surfing the web? In order to answer these questions, the authors interviewed parents and instructors about children’s Internet use. They also observed children surfing the Internet, though these observations were made in a research laboratory-like setting rather than in a natural context. In addition to the results of this empirical study, the book includes a presentation of German-language websites suitable for children and a discussion of the protection of children and young people on the Internet. The text is especially interesting when it becomes apparent, possibly in contradiction to common expectations, how little the Internet has to offer to children apart from commercial web sites. The study is to be understood as an explorative study and therefore lacks a certain theoretical depth. It offers a good overview of the (German-language Internet for children and allows insights into possible ways in which children deal with the Internet. URN: urn:nbn:de:0114-fqs0601103

En el presente artículo se analiza una de las adaptaciones más sorprendentes, innovadoras y rupturantes de la historia del cine, ‘Memento’, que explota, como ninguna otra antes, la posibilidad de romper el hilo narrativo llamado convencional o lineal, para pasar a generar una trama en la que el espectador se erige en lecto-autor.

El hecho de  que ‘Memento’ esté basada en un relato corto permite que, además, se consideren las ventajas que este tipo de relatos ofrece a los adaptadores-guionistas frente a los relatos largos como las novelas o las obras teatrales.

  18. A method for calculating a land-use change carbon footprint (LUC-CFP) for agricultural commodities - applications to Brazilian beef and soy, Indonesian palm oil.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Persson, U Martin; Henders, Sabine; Cederberg, Christel

    2014-11-01

    The world's agricultural system has come under increasing scrutiny recently as an important driver of global climate change, creating a demand for indicators that estimate the climatic impacts of agricultural commodities. Such carbon footprints, however, have in most cases excluded emissions from land-use change and the proposed methodologies for including this significant emissions source suffer from different shortcomings. Here, we propose a new methodology for calculating land-use change carbon footprints for agricultural commodities and illustrate this methodology by applying it to three of the most prominent agricultural commodities driving tropical deforestation: Brazilian beef and soybeans, and Indonesian palm oil. We estimate land-use change carbon footprints in 2010 to be 66 tCO2 /t meat (carcass weight) for Brazilian beef, 0.89 tCO2 /t for Brazilian soybeans, and 7.5 tCO2 /t for Indonesian palm oil, using a 10 year amortization period. The main advantage of the proposed methodology is its flexibility: it can be applied in a tiered approach, using detailed data where it is available while still allowing for estimation of footprints for a broad set of countries and agricultural commodities; it can be applied at different scales, estimating both national and subnational footprints; it can be adopted to account both for direct (proximate) and indirect drivers of land-use change. It is argued that with an increasing commercialization and globalization of the drivers of land-use change, the proposed carbon footprint methodology could help leverage the power needed to alter environmentally destructive land-use practices within the global agricultural system by providing a tool for assessing the environmental impacts of production, thereby informing consumers about the impacts of consumption and incentivizing producers to become more environmentally responsible. © 2014 John Wiley & Sons Ltd.

  20. La fábrica de cristal y vidrio de Santa Lucía (Cartagena y el sector del vidrio español (1834-1908

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Martínez Carrión, J. M.

    2002-06-01

    Full Text Available This article is a contribution to the Spanish glass industry from the knowledge of Fabrica de Cristal y Vidrio de Santa Lucia (Cartagena during the XIXth century. The evolution of this company is accomplished within the context of the Spanish sector underlining some phases: Its impulse during 1840´s and 1850´s, market problems and competition in the last decades of the XIXth century, and its restructuring at the beginning of the XXth century, which ended with an intense process of concentration and internationalization that affected plane glass and hollow glass. Likewise, industrial location factors, regional distribution of the production, and changes occurred in its various branches between 1856 and 1905 are reported. Data reveal the leading role of this factory from Cartagena in the glass industry and, particularly, its specialization in crystal, glassware of best quality, and white cut glass during the Restoration period.

    El trabajo contribuye al conocimiento de la industria del vidrio español durante el siglo XIX a partir de la Fábrica de Cristal y Vidrio de Santa Lucia (Cartagena. La evolución de la empresa es analizada en el contexto del sector español, destacándose varias fases: el impulso que vivió el sector en las décadas de 1840 y 1850, los problemas de mercado y competitividad en las décadas finales del siglo XIX y la reestructuración de comienzos del siglo XX. Esta última acabó con la formación de estructuras de oligopolio que afectaron a las ramas del vidrio plano y del vidrio hueco.

    The successful clinical application of adenovirus (Ad) in cancer control has been of limited success because of the current inability to infect the majority of cancer cells with a large amount of vector. In this study, we show that when human lung tumors growing in immunodeficient nude mice were coinfected with a replication-defective (RD) Ad vector expressing green fluorescent protein and a replication-competent (RC) Ad vector named KD3, KD3 enhanced the expression of green fluorescent protein throughout the tumor. Also, KD3 and another RC vector named KD1 complemented the expression of luciferase from a RD vector in a human liver tumor xenotransplant in nude mice. Altogether, these results suggest that the combination of a RD vector with a RC vector might be a more effective treatment for cancer than either vector alone due to more widespread dissemination of the virus.

    Schalk Hendrik Gerber

    2017-02-01

    Full Text Available The debate on the possibility of re-thinking transcendence at the so-called end or closure of the metaphysical tradition and its relation to the political is situated at the heart of contemporary continental philosophy of religion. This article engages the debate by reviewing what is to be thought or anticipated at the closure. Firstly, the problem of engaging with transcendence at the closure of metaphysics is outlined as a discussion on what is possibly meant by the end of transcendence and onto-theology. Subsequently, the question concerning the political and its inseparable relation to transcendence is sketched and denoted by the phrase “the political/transcendence”. Secondly, Levinas’ and Nancy’s respective attempts at addressing the problem are explored in the form of a debate, with the outcome suggesting a possible gesture towards Nancy’s reconception of transcendence as transimmanence, found in his notion of “the promise of love”, on “how” to anticipate rather than “what” to anticipate in these end times.

Em primeiro lugar, examinamos o argumento e a estrutura da TBS, destacando seus elementos epistemológicos fundamentais e principalmente as justificativas lógicas e teóricas de sua definição da saúde como ausência de doença. Em segundo lugar, discutimos as numerosas críticas recebidas por Boorse em duas décadas de circulação dos seus textos, buscando estabelecer a pertinência e atualidade dessas críticas. Em seguida, identificamos problemas e pontos fortes da teoria boorseana, retomando as principais críticas dirigidas ao autor, bem como suas tentativas de resposta. Por fim, levantamos algumas questões que podem propiciar uma continuidade e um enriquecimento do debate em torno do conceito de saúde a fim de explorar sua aplicabilidade para uma teoria geral da saúde-doença-cuidado, cada vez mais necessária neste momento em que se pretende uma maior articulação entre abordagens biológicas e ecossociais dos fenômenos da saúde e da doença.

    Fox (1990), in order to explain observations during the Axial Seamount Hydrothermal Emissions Study (ASHES), proposed a conceptual model for a two-phase subsea hydrothermal system in which steam controlled flow patterns by blocking liquid flow. An attempt is made here to demonstrate with a very general model that relative permeability contrasts by themselves do not cause spatial isolation of phases in steam/liquid water systems and that density segregation, independent of relative permeability effects, should not be ruled out as an explanation for the observations at the ASHES site. Fox replies that density segregation is probably not the only mechanism at work.

    Full Text Available Im vorliegenden Sammelband wird der Frage nachgegangen, welchen Beitrag die Gender Studies und die Medienwissenschaften zur Diskussion um die Lebenswissenschaften im Sinne der „sciences de la vie“ leisten können und sollen. Mit Schwerpunkt auf dem 20. Jahrhundert wird ein großes Feld abgesteckt, und es wird in sehr heterogenen Beiträgen versucht, Schnittstellen dieser drei Bereiche sichtbar zu machen. Wenngleich die gemeinsame Fragestellung dabei teilweise nicht leicht erkennbar ist, sind viele der Beiträge für eine weitergehende interdisziplinäre Auseinandersetzung anregend. Dies vor allem dort, wo es gelungen ist zu zeigen, wie sich das Wissen vom Leben mit der Kategorie Geschlecht etwa im Medium Film verschränkt und mediale Effekte erzeugt sowie biopolitische Dispositive mitgeformt oder irritiert werden.The collected volume at hand pursues the question as to what contribution Gender Studies and Media Studies can and should make to discussions in the life sciences (in the sense of the sciences de la vie. The volume sets up a large frame of reference in its emphasis on the 20th century and in very heterogeneous articles it attempts to tease out points of overlap between the three aforementioned areas. Although the common problem is not always easily determined, many of the articles might provoke further interdisciplinary examination. This is particularly the case where the volume is successful in showing how the knowledge of life, for example in the medium of film, is entangled with the category of gender and thus affects media and forms or disturbs bio-political apparatuses.

  2. Soil and Plant Mercury Concentrations and Pools in the Arctic Tundra of Northern Alaska by Hedge Christine, Obrist Daniel, Agnan Yannick, Moore Christopher, Biester Harald, Helmig Detlev

    We present vegetation, soil and runoff mercury (Hg) concentrations and pool sizes in vegetation and soils at several arctic tundra sites, an area that represents <7 x 106 km2 of land surface globally. The primary measurement location is at Toolik Field Station (TFS, 68° 38' N) in northern Alaska, with additional samples collected along a transect from TFS to the Arctic Ocean, and in Noatak National Preserve to be collected in August 2015. Soil and vegetation samples from all sites will be analyzed for total Hg concentration, pH, soil texture, bulk density, soil moisture content, organic and total carbon (C), nitrogen, along with major and trace elements. Initial results already obtained from TFS (characterized as moist to wet tundra with Typic Aquiturbel soils) show Hg concentrations in tundra vegetation (112±15 μg kg-1) and organic soil (140±8 μg kg-1) similar to those found in temperate sites. Calculation of plant-based Hg deposition rates by litterfall of 17.3 μg kg-1 yr-1 were surprisingly high, exceeding all other Hg deposition fluxes at this site. Hg concentrations in mineral soils (95±3 μg kg-1) were 2-3 times higher than those found at temperate sites. Hg concentrations showed weak relationships to organic C concentrations contrasting patterns from temperate soils where concentrations typically decline with depth following lower organic carbon contents. In fact, vertical mass profiles of Hg showed a strong increase with depth, with mineral layers storing over 90% (200-500 g ha-1) of Hg within these soils. A principle component analysis including major and trace elements indicated that soil Hg was not of lithogenic origin but from atmospheric sources, possibly by long-range transport. Carbon-14 dating results showed over 7,000 years old organic carbon in mineral soils of the active layer where highest concentrations of soil Hg were observed, suggesting long term retention of atmospheric Hg. These patterns suggest vertical translocation of Hg from the surface organic horizons to mineral soils and strong accumulation—possibly over millennia—therein.

Der verwendete methodologische Ansatz – die Feldforschung – scheint hier besonders angebracht zu sein, um herrschende Vorstellungen vom devianten Charakter der Prostitution mit der Empirie zu konfrontieren. Leider scheitert der Band daran, die ethnographischen Beobachtungen mit einer wissenschaftlichen Analyse der Begriffe ‚Devianz‘ und ‚Normen‘ (und deren sozialen Konstruktion zu verknüpfen.

As the title of the work suggests, they classify their studies under the category of “deviance” analysis. The methodological approach used – fieldwork – seems entirely appropriate for confronting dominant conceptions of the deviant nature of prostitution with empiricism. Unfortunately, the volume fails to link its ethnographic observations with a scientific analysis of the terms “deviance” and “norms” (and their social construction. Moreover, a consideration of the relationship between space, gender, and politics in light of the special case of prostitution in the area around the Frankfurt train station is sorely missed.

Ao longo de meu estudo, apresento certas contradições que impossibilitam classificar os escritos blanchotianos de 1930 sob a égide de qualquer doutrina. No processo crescente da escrita de Blanchot, o político, ou a política, nunca deixou de estar presente, seja para defender uma ideia de França utópica, seja para defender uma ideia de literatura, lembrando que no decorrer dos anos as posições políticas mudam e, sobretudo, o que se compreende por política. Como pressuposto teórico, dialogo, além de com os escritos de Blanchot, com os textos de Jean-Luc Nancy, Dionys Mascolo, Philippe Lacoue-Labarthe e Christophe Bident. Cet article examine le progrès du récit critique de Maurice Blanchot à partir de ses textes politiques des années 30, que de nombreux chercheurs classent comme étant des textes fascistes ou antisémites.

Quant au perfectionnement de l’écriture de Blanchot, le politique, ou la politique, n’a jamais cessé d’être présent, soit pour défendre l’idée d’une France utopique, soit pour défendre l’idée d’une littérature, rappelant qu’au cours des années, les positions politiques changent, et surtout, ce que l’on entend par le mot politique. Comme supposition théorique, je dialogue au-delà des écrits de Blanchot, avec les textes de Jean-Luc Nancy, Dionys Mascolo, Philippe Lacoue- Labarthe et Christophe Bident.

    No es un hecho azaroso que en la organización de la teoría literaria del siglo xx se haya otorgado una importancia cada vez mayor al tratamiento literario del espacio, desde los trabajos fenomenológicos de Bachelard o Poulet, pioneros en su campo, hasta los space critics que celebra Paul de Man en 1964. La inteligencia humana, según lo demostraba Ernst Cassirer en su Filosofía de las formas simbólicas, se orienta de lo concreto hacia lo abstracto, necesita partir de una base material, y todo ...

    CARE FOR those at the end of their lives is something that must concern all health professionals, not just those of us who nurse older people. And there is no doubt that every individual has some thoughts on how - and where - they would like to approach death. We see this need in ourselves, our relatives and our patients. But how far those hopes and wishes can be respected and achieved is another matter.

    A total of 449 Escherichia coli isolates in treated and raw water sources were submitted to DNA-DNA hybridization using seven different DNA probes to detect homology to sequences that code for Shiga-like toxins I and II; heat-stabile and heat-labile toxins, adherence factors EAF and eae, and the fimbrial antigen of entero-hemorrhagic E. coli.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2015-03-01

    Full Text Available The article analyzes Mampujan’s issue of redress [incidente de reparación] to show how the conception of damage that accompanies and justifies this space allows us to trace a particular configuration of being in common. Mampuján is a community that re-presents itself in and through that damage insofar as the latter intensifies the impossibility of fixing an identity for the community. This impossibility is discussed as a movement of withdrawal, always unrepairable and irredeemable. The text also shows how this movement echoes the way in which Nancy’s “Deconstruction of Christianity” calls on us to problematize the rigidity of our traditional conceptions of Justice. All of the above is done in the light of a question regarding the possibility of reconciliation in the context of the Colombian ‘Justice and Peace’ Law.

    The suggestions by Hutton et al. might not be enough to guarantee reproducible computational hydrology. Archiving software code and research data alone will not be enough. We add to the suggestion of Hutton et al. that hydrologists not only document their (computer) work, but that hydrologists use the latest best practices in designing research software, most notably the use of containers and open interfaces. To make sure hydrologists know of these best practices, we urge close collaboration with Research Software Engineers (RSEs).

    Full Text Available Todd, Cousins, and Lee (2007 have presented some intriguing data suggesting that body size, as measured by standard anthropometric indices, is related to the preferred beat period in a perceptual task. Curiously, however, they did not find a significant sex difference, even though the women in their sample were clearly smaller than the men. Another recent study of preferred spontaneous tempo (McAuley et al., 2006 likewise failed to find a sex difference in a large sample of young adults. It is unclear why body size should have an effect only within each sex group.

Wie der Titel des Werks zu erkennen gibt, ordnen sie ihre Studien in die Auseinandersetzung mit dem Thema ‚Devianz‘ ein. Der verwendete methodologische Ansatz – die Feldforschung – scheint hier besonders angebracht zu sein, um herrschende Vorstellungen vom devianten Charakter der Prostitution mit der Empirie zu konfrontieren. Leider scheitert der Band daran, die ethnographischen Beobachtungen mit einer wissenschaftlichen Analyse der Begriffe ‚Devianz‘ und ‚Normen‘ (und deren sozialen Konstruktion zu verknüpfen. Bedauernswert ist zudem die fehlende Reflexion über den Zusammenhang zwischen Raum, Gender und Politik im Lichte des Sonderfalls der Prostitution im Frankfurter Bahnhofsviertel.

  19. ATP-Binding Cassette Transporters Modulate Both Coelenterazine- and D-Luciferin-Based Bioluminescence Imaging

    Full Text Available Bioluminescence imaging (BLI of luciferase reporters provides a cost-effective and sensitive means to image biological processes. However, transport of luciferase substrates across the cell membrane does affect BLI readout intensity from intact living cells. To investigate the effect of ATP-binding cassette (ABC transporters on BLI readout, we generated click beetle (cLuc, firefly (fLuc, Renilla (rLuc, and Gaussia (gLuc luciferase HEK-293 reporter cells that overexpressed different ABC transporters (ABCB1, ABCC1, and ABCG2. In vitro studies showed a significant BLI intensity decrease in intact cells compared to cell lysates, when ABCG2 was overexpressed in HEK-293/cLuc, fLuc, and rLuc cells. Selective ABC transporter inhibitors were also applied. Inhibition of ABCG2 activity increased the BLI intensity more than two-fold in HEK-293/cLuc, fLuc, and rLuc cells; inhibition of ABCB1 elevated the BLI intensity two-fold only in HEK-293/rLuc cells. BLI of xenografts derived from HEK-293/ABC transporter/luciferase reporter cells confirmed the results of inhibitor treatment in vivo. These findings demonstrate that coelenterazine-based rLuc-BLI intensity can be modulated by ABCB1 and ABCG2. ABCG2 modulates d-luciferin-based BLI in a luciferase type–independent manner. Little ABC transporter effect on gLuc-BLI intensity is observed because a large fraction of gLuc is secreted. The expression level of ABC transporters is one key factor affecting BLI intensity, and this may be particularly important in luciferase-based applications in stem cell research.

    Full Text Available El volumen que reseñamos es una aportación a un campo relativamente poco estudiado aún: la fraseología contrastiva o la tipología fraseológica. La fraseología ha pasado de ser un ámbito periférico del lenguaje en el cual se coleccionaban e inventariaban dichos y expresiones de carácter idiomático o folclórico, a convertirse en una disciplina lingüística. El estatus de la fraseología ha ganado en tanto en cuanto se ha reconocido su importancia para la comprensión del funcionamiento del lenguaje, de los estudios de traducción, de la traducción automática, etc. El libro que reseñamos se plantea un doble objetivo: en primer lugar indagar y fundamentar las bases científicas de la fraseología tipológica y cognitiva, objetivo que se realiza fundamentalmente desde la integración de dos perspectivas: los universales semánticos de Wierzbicka y la semántica cognitiva de Lakoff y Johnson. En segundo lugar, en la obra se desarrolla una metodología adecuada a través de un modelo translingüístico jerarquizado de clasificación, con distintos niveles de equivalencia entre unidades fraseológicas que designan la misma realidad: modelos icónicos, archimetáforas y metáforas particulares. El modelo desarrollado por los autores se ejemplifica en un trabajo de campo, en una veintena de lenguas, en el que se han estudiado una serie de ámbitos nocionales universales a través de expresiones idiomáticas peculiares relacionadas con temas como son el miedo, la ira, el trabajo, la pobreza, etc.

    We continuously monitored bioluminescence from a wild-type reporter strain of Escherichia coli (lacp::luc+/WT), which carries the promoter of the lac operon (lacp) fused with the firefly luciferase gene (luc+). This strain showed a bioluminescence burst when shifted into the stationary growth phase. Bioluminescence profiles of other wild-type reporter strains (rpsPp::luc+ and argAp::luc+) and gene-deletion reporter strains (lacp::luc+/crp- and lacp::luc+/lacI-) indicate that transcriptional regulation is not responsible for generation of the burst. Consistently, changes in the luciferase protein levels did not recapitulate the profile of the burst. On the other hand, dissolved oxygen levels increased over the period across the burst, suggesting that the burst is, at least partially, caused by an increase in intracellular oxygen levels. We discuss limits of the firefly luciferase when used as a reporter for gene expression and its potential utility for monitoring metabolic changes in cells.

    Full Text Available Objective – The primary intent of this study was to identify differences among library instruction conference attendees and their institutions between the United States and Canada. The overall hypothesis was that there would be areas of measurable distinction between the two countries. The authors tested nine hypotheses: #1, that the largest number of survey respondents would be employed at large institutions; #2, that statistically, the majority of well developed instructional programs are found at universities rather than colleges; #3, that beginning programs are more often found at four-year institutions; #4, that program development and technological issues predominate among instructional foci in the early twenty-first century; #5, that more experienced librarians are more likely to attend library instruction conferences; #6, that LOEX (originally an acronym for Library Orientation Exchange is perceived as the most valuable conference in library instruction; #7, that the impact of conference attendance upon library program development is only moderate; #8, that conference theme and reputation are the two greatest factors contributing to attendance; and #9, that the majority of conference attendees are from the United States. Design – Historical research, and an emailed survey. Setting – Libraries and library instruction conferences in the United States and Canada. Subjects – One hundred thirty-two librarians who were attendees at one of three library user instruction conferences: LOEX, LOEX of the West, and WILU (Workshop on Instruction in Library Use. Methods – First, a brief historical review was conducted on the influence of social, economic, and political events on the development of library user instruction, the creation of conferences focused on library instruction in from the United States and Canada, and national surveys looking at institutional support for instructional development. Next, a survey instrument consisting of fifteen demographic and attitudinal questions was sent via e‐mail to all 508 attendees of major library instruction conferences (LOEX and WILU for 2001, and LOEX of the West for 2000 in the United States and Canada. Responses from the 132 returned surveys were tabulated and used to evaluate their linked hypotheses. Main results – Of the nine initial hypotheses, five were supported, and the remaining four were either partially supported or rejected. Supported hypotheses included: #1, that most participants in the top library instructional conferences came from institutions with >5,000 student populations; #2, that the majority of fully developed instructional programs were in universities; #5, that librarians with greater seniority were more likely to attend instructional conferences; #7, that conference attendance has only a medium impact on program development at participants’ home institutions; and #9, that most conference attendees come from the United States. Partially supported hypotheses were: #4, that factors most highly rated by participants were program development and technology, and #8, that conference theme and reputation are ranked higher in terms of influence in attendees’ decision to participate in the conferences. Rejected hypotheses included: #3, that “beginning programs are typically found at four‐year institutions,” #4, that “program development and technology rank as the two most important instruction‐related issues” (note that hypothesis #4 is both rejected and partially supported, and #6, that “LOEX is considered the most valuable conference.” Conclusion – The authors confirmed their overall hypothesis that significant differences exist between the United States and Canada regarding library instructional programs. Although the two countries developed at very different rates prior to the 1960s, technology and cross‐border sharing has meant that they are now developing along parallel paths. The authors suggest several avenues for further study including the need to consider attendees over a greater time span, the differences in responses between younger and more senior participants, and questions about the real differences between library instructional programs in Canada and the United States.

    Full Text Available In the years between the wars, Republican France and Fascist Italy vied for international regard as the foremost “Latin” nation. The fourteen essays in this book examine a network of people whose activities were characterized by the various declensions of a few key terms: Latinité/Latinità, Romanité/Romanità, and Méditerranéanisme/Mediterraneità —concepts that combined a European transnationalism with enhanced nationalism. As different as their political regimes might have been, France and Italy were nations were culture was first and foremost an affair of State. For those French diplomats and cultural officials on the Right who mistrusted the messiness of the democratic parliamentary system and were haunted by a fear of their nation’s cultural decadence and its alleged subjugation to the North, “Latin” fascism became a beacon. Roughly half of the essays in the book retrace however the fortunes of individual Francophile Italians living in Paris whose activities contributed to promoting and thus legitimizing the art and literature produced under the Fascist regime. Vers une Europe Latine offer a model of interdisciplinary research in rewriting the historiography of a particularly troubled period.

    The hypoxia inducible factor-1 (HIF-1) is a suitable marker for tissue oxygenation. We intended to develop cardiomyocytes (CMs) expressing the oxygen-dependent degradation domain of HIF-1α fused to the firefly luciferase (ODD-Luc) followed by proof-of-concept for its applicability in the assessment of heart muscle oxygenation. We first generated embryonic stem cell (ESC) lines (ODD-Luc ESCs) from a Tg ROSA26 ODD-Luc/+ mouse. Subsequent CMs selection was facilitated by stable integration of an antibiotic resistance expressed under the control of the αMHC promoter. ODD-Luc ESCs showed a strong Luc-signal within 1 h of hypoxia (1% oxygen), which coincided with endogenous HIF-1α. Engineered heart muscle (EHM) constructed with ODD-Luc CMs confirmed the utility of the model to sense hypoxia, and monitor reoxygenation also in a multicellular heart muscle model. Pharmacologically induced inotropy/chronotropy under isoprenaline resulted in enhanced Luc-signal suggesting enhanced oxygen consumption, leading to notable myocardial hypoxia. ODD-Luc-CMs can be used to monitor dynamic changes of cardiomyocyte oxygenation in living heart muscle samples. We provide proof-of-concept for pharmacologically induced myocardial interventions and envision applications of the developed model in drug screens and fundamental studies of ischemia/reperfusion injury. © 2014 S.

    Historical land-use (LUC) change is known to have been a large source of CO2 emissions, mostly from deforestation: the equivalent of around 1/3 of today's CO2 in the atmosphere arises from LUC. And LUC will continue into the future, although the expected area change, the type of LUC (deforestation vs. afforestation/reforestation) and regions where the LUC will take place will differ greatly, depending on the future scenario. But LUC is not only of importance for projecting emissions of CO2. It also affects greatly emissions of biogenic volatile organic carbon, and from wildfires - all of which are important for the quantification of precursor substances relevant to air quality, and interactions with climate change. We show here that accounting for future socio-economic developments and LUC scenarios has the potential to override climate change and effects of CO2 fertilisation on fire and BVOC emission, regionally and in some cases also globally. Simulation experiments with the dynamic global vegetation model LPJ-GUESS will be performed, covering the 20th and 21st century, and assessing a rage of future population growth, LUC and climate change scenarios. For wildfire emissions, we find that burned area and emissions depend greatly on the type of population growth scenario, and on the distribution of urban vs rural population. BVOC emissions depend greatly on the amount and location of deforestation vs the region and magnitude of forest expansion in response to warming, such as through expansion of vegetation in the northern hemisphere, and via reforestation/afforestation. LUC so far has not been given sufficient attention for simulations of future air quality-climate interactions. In terms of terrestrial precursor emissions of atmospherically reactive substances our simulations clearly demonstrate the importance of including LUC in combination with vegetation that responds dynamically to changes in climate and atmospheric CO2 levels.

    2014-01-01

    Objective:To construct a PSA luciferase report plasmid and monitor the growth and metastasis of prostate cancer after emasculation in SCID mice. Methods: PSA promoter sequence and luciferase gene were amplified by PCR and subsequently inserted into pZsGreen1-1 vector to construct pPSA-FL-Luc vector. LNCaP cells that were stably transfected with pPSA-FL-Luc were used to establish a SCID mouse xenograft model. Then, the growth and metastasis of prostate cancer were monitored via living imaging. Results:We successfully constructed a PSA luciferase plasmid, pPSA-FL-Luc. DHT enhanced luciferase activity in a concentration-dependent manner in 293T cells with pPSA-FL-Luc transfection. Prostate cancer SCID mouse model was established with pPSA-FL-Luc transfected LNCaP cells. In tumor bearing mice with or without emasculation, pPSA-FL-Luc plasmid was applied to monitored tumor growth and metastasis based on bioluminescence imaging. Conclusions: We construct a pPSA-FL-Luc plasmid, which stably expresses luciferase and can be applied to monitor tumor development in a prostate SCID mouse model.

  20. Linking carbon stock change from land-use change to consumption of agricultural products: Alternative perspectives.

    Agricultural expansion driven by growing demand has been a key driver for carbon stock change as a consequence of land-use change (CSC-LUC). However, its relative role compared to non-agricultural and non-productive drivers, as well as propagating effects were not clearly addressed. This study contributed to this subject by providing alternative perspectives in addressing these missing links. A method was developed to allocate historical CSC-LUC to agricultural expansions by land classes (products), trade, and end use. The analysis for 1995-2010 leads to three key trends: (i) agricultural land degradation and abandonment is found to be a major (albeit indirect) driver for CSC-LUC, (ii) CSC-LUC is spurred by the growth of cross-border trade, (iii) non-food use (excluding liquid biofuels) has emerged as a significant contributor of CSC-LUC in the 2000's. In addition, the study demonstrated that exact values of CSC-LUC at a single spatio-temporal point may change significantly with different methodological settings. For example, CSC-LUC allocated to 'permanent oil crops' changed from 0.53 Pg C (billion tonne C) of carbon stock gain to 0.11 Pg C of carbon stock loss when spatial boundaries were changed from global to regional. Instead of comparing exact values for accounting purpose, key messages for policymaking were drawn from the main trends. Firstly, climate change mitigation efforts pursued through a territorial perspective may ignore indirect effects elsewhere triggered through trade linkages. Policies targeting specific commodities or types of consumption are also unable to quantitatively address indirect CSC-LUC effects because the quantification changes with different arbitrary methodological settings. Instead, it is recommended that mobilising non-productive or under-utilised lands for productive use should be targeted as a key solution to avoid direct and indirect CSC-LUC.

  1. Colostrum whey down-regulates the expression of early and late inflammatory response genes induced by Escherichia coli and Salmonella enterica Typhimurium components in intestinal epithelial cells.

    Pathogenic invasion by Escherichia coli and Salmonellae remains a constant threat to the integrity of the intestinal epithelium and can rapidly induce inflammatory responses. At birth, colostrum consumption exerts numerous beneficial effects on the properties of intestinal epithelial cells and protects the gastrointestinal tract of newborns from pathogenic invasion. The present study aimed to investigate the effect of colostrum on the early and late inflammatory responses induced by pathogens. The short-term (2 h) and long-term (24 h) effects of exposure to heat-killed (HK) E. coli and Salmonella enterica Typhimurium on gene expression in the porcine intestinal epithelial cell (IPEC-J2) model were first evaluated by microarray and quantitative PCR analyses. Luciferase assays were performed using a NF-κB-luc reporter construct to investigate the effect of colostrum whey treatment on the activation of NF-κB induced by HK bacteria. Luciferase assays were also performed using NF-κB-luc, IL-8-luc and IL-6-luc reporter constructs in human colon adenocarcinoma Caco-2/15 cells exposed to dose-response stimulations with HK bacteria and colostrum whey. Bovine colostrum whey treatment decreased the expression of early and late inflammatory genes induced by HK bacteria in IPEC-J2, as well as the transcriptional activation of NF-κB-luc induced by HK bacteria. Unlike that with colostrum whey, treatment with other milk fractions failed to decrease the activation of NF-κB-luc induced by HK bacteria. Lastly, the reduction of the HK bacteria-induced activation of NF-κB-luc, IL-8-luc and IL-6-luc by colostrum whey was dose dependent. The results of the present study indicate that bovine colostrum may protect and preserve the integrity of the intestinal mucosal barrier in the host by controlling the expression levels of early and late inflammatory genes following invasion by enteric pathogens.

    Full Text Available Objective – To determine whether hospital charges, length of stay or 30-day readmission rates were affected by case discussion at residents’ morning report (MR, accompanied by librarian-provided literature search results, within 24 hours of admission. Design – Case-control study and survey.Setting – Louisiana State University School of Medicine.Subjects – MR cases presented during the study period August 2004 to March 2005 matched with one to three cases (controls of patients who were hospitalised in the period January 2000 to July 2005. House officers who presented the MR cases during the study period were the subjects for the survey.Methods – MR cases were presented between 8:00am and 9:00am, five days a week, and only one case was presented at each MR. During the study period, August 2004 to March 2005, the presenting house officer selected independently a case for presentation at MR from patients admitted during the previous 24 hours. The selection was made without guidance as to which cases or illnesses to choose and without the knowledge or involvement of the attending physician or investigators. The term “house officer” is not defined in the article so it is not clear whether this refers to medical residents only, or if it includes interns. The faculty librarian, with clinical input from the chief resident or the chair of the Department of Medicine, conducted a search of the medical literature immediately following the MR to identify articles or citations that would answer two questions posed at the end of the presentation. The chair of the department or chief resident selected the articles that provided the most clinically sound answers to the questions. By 10:00 am, copies of the selected articles were hand-delivered to the presenting house officer and shared with members of the ward team.For the case-control component, the MR cases presented during the study period were matched against a comparison group of patients who were hospitalised in the period January 2000 to July 2005. Matching of controls to the MR cases was made on the basis of the primary International Classification of Diseases (ICD-9 diagnostic code, patient age and concomitant secondary diagnosis. MR cases with nomatching control case were excluded from analysis of length of stay, costs or readmission rates. A maximum of three control cases were randomly selected where a MR case matched with more than three control cases. Data regarding demographic information of the patient (age, sex, race, insurance coverage, marital status and number of diseases diagnosed, the length of stay, total hospitalisation charges and readmission rates within 30 days of initial discharge were extracted from the medical records of matched MR and control cases. Statistical tests (Student T or chi-squared tests were used to compare differences between the demographic details of patients in the MR group and the control cases. Wilcoxon signed rank test and Sign test were used to analyse nonparametric data such as length of stay and hospital charges. Median values, rather than the mean, wereused for the outcome measures to reduce the influence of any extreme or outlier values. The researchers considered a p value less than p = 0.05 to be statistically significant. For the survey component of the study, each presenting house officer was asked to complete a questionnaire for each MR case they presented during the study period, which asked them to comment on the quality of the articles located in response to the questions posed at the MR and to saywhether the information would influence their treatment of the patient. A copy of the questionnaire is accessible online via a linkwithin the article; however it is not stated who analyzed the results or how this was done.Main Results – Of the 105 cased presented at MR during the study period, 55 cases could be matched with at least one control up to a maximum of three cases, resulting in a total of 136 control cases.Statistical analysis of the MR cases and the control cases showed no significant difference in the demographic details between the groups.MR cases had a median length of stay of three days compared to five days for control cases. This difference was statistically significant (p = 0.0238. A logarithmic plot comparing length of stay between MR cases and controls showed a positive association that was statistically significant (p = 0.012 between presentation at MR and a reduced median length of stay. Median hospitalisation charges were $7,045 for the MR cases and $10,663 for the controlcases; however, the difference was not statistically significant (p = 0.24. A logarithmic plot for total charges showed that, in most cases, charges for MR cases were lower than controls; however, thedifferences did not reach statistical significance (p = 0.18. Readmission rates within thirty days of initial discharge were 16.4% for MR cases and 16.8% for controls. There was no statistically significant difference in readmission rates between the groups (p >0.88. Analysis of the survey responses found that the house officers commented on the quality of the articles for 60 of the 105 MR cases presented. In 43 cases, the house officer commented that the articles had a positive influence on patient management. Comments for a further ten cases indicated that, although they did not alter the management of MR patient cases, the house officers believed that the articles provided good background information which may be helpful in the future. Seven other comments indicated that the articles had not influenced their patient management in anyrespect.Conclusion – Presentation of cases at MR accompanied by dissemination of literature search results resulted in a statistically significant shortened median length of stay and lower hospital charges compared to matched control cases. Readmission rates within 30 days of first diagnosis showed no differences between MR cases and control cases. Supplementary survey results found that the 41% of the presenting house officers believed that the literature search information provided following the MR presentation positively influenced patient management.

  6. Monitoring immediate-early gene expression through firefly luciferase imaging of HRS/J hairless mice

    Full Text Available Abstract Background Gene promoters fused to the firefly luciferase gene (luc are useful for examining gene regulation in live transgenic mice and they provide unique views of functioning organs. The dynamics of gene expression in cells and tissues expressing luciferase can be observed by imaging this enzyme's bioluminescent oxidation of luciferin. Neural pathways involved in specific behaviors have been identified by localizing expression of immediate-early genes such as c-fos. A transgenic mouse line with luc controlled by the human c-fos promoter (fos::luc has enabled gene expression imaging in brain slice cultures. To optimize imaging of immediate-early gene expression throughout intact mice, the present study examined fos::luc mice and a second transgenic mouse containing luc controlled by the human cytomegalovirus immediate-early gene 1 promoter and enhancer (CMV::luc. Because skin pigments and hair can significantly scatter light from underlying structures, the two transgenic lines were crossed with a hairless albino mouse (HRS/J to explore which deep structures could be imaged. Furthermore, live anesthetized mice were compared with overdosed mice. Results Bioluminescence imaging of anesthetized mice over several weeks corresponded with expression patterns in mice imaged rapidly after a lethal overdose. Both fos::luc and CMV::luc mice showed quantifiable bright bioluminescence in ear, nose, paws, and tail whether they were anesthetized or overdosed. CMV::luc and fos::luc neonates had bioluminescence patterns similar to those of adults, although intensity was significantly higher in neonates. CMV::luc mice crossed with HRS/J mice had high expression in bone, claws, head, pancreas, and skeletal muscle, but less in extremities than haired CMV::luc mice. Imaging of brain bioluminescence through the neonatal skull was also practical. By imaging luciferin autofluorescence it was clear that substrate distribution did not restrict bioluminescence

    is generally weakly established. This paper presents the conceptual framework required for a consistent modelling of iLUC in Life Cycle Assessment. It reports on a novel and biophysical iLUC model, in which amortisation is avoided by using discounted Global Warming Potentials (GWPs). The causal link between......Around 9% of global CO2 emissions originate from land use changes. Often, these emissions are not appropriately addressed in Life Cycle Assessment. The link between demand for crops in one region and impacts in other regions is referred to here as indirect land use change (iLUC) and includes...... deforestation, intensification and reduced consumption. Existing models for iLUC tend to ignore intensification and reduced consumption, they most often operate with arbitrary amortisation periods to allocate deforestation emissions over time, and the causal link between land occupation and deforestation...

Similarly, the effect of different modelling approaches in LUC emission accounting was studied by the application of several methods to four biofuel case studies. As a result, dynamic land-use baseline methods were rejected for LUC...... accounting while top-down LUC models showed to be a more solid alternative to economic iLUC models for regulation and footprinting purposes. After considering the studied epistemic uncertainties and based on the key conservative assumptions taken, it was concluded that land-demanding biofuels have larger...... global warming impacts than the respective fossil fuels they replace unless planted on abandoned lands. With Papers I-II, the selection of the land-use references and time horizons involved in LCA of biofuels was demonstrated to be crucial for the characterization of the resulting environmental impacts...

    Monkeypox viruses (MPXV) cause human monkeypox, a zoonotic smallpox-like disease endemic to Africa, and are of worldwide public health and biodefense concern. Using viruses from the Congo (MPXV-2003-Congo-358) and West African (MPXV-2003-USA-044) clades, we constructed recombinant viruses that express the luciferase gene (MPXV-Congo/Luc+and MPXV-USA-Luc+) and compared their viral infection in mice by biophotonic imaging. BALB/c mice became infected by both MPXV clades, but they recovered and cleared the infection within 10 days post-infection (PI). However, infection in severe combined immune deficient (SCID) BALB/c mice resulted in 100% lethality. Intraperitoneal (IP) injection of both MPXV-Congo and MPXV-Congo/Luc+resulted in a systemic clinical disease and the same mean time-to-death at 9 (??0) days post-infection. Likewise, IP injection of SCID-BALB/c mice with MPXV-USA or the MPXV-USA-Luc+, resulted in similar disease but longer (Pluminescence in the abdomen within 24 hours PI with subsequent spread elsewhere. Animals infected with the MPXV-USA/Luc+had less intense luminescence in tissues than those inoculated with MPXV-Congo/Luc+, and systemic spread of the MPXV-USA/Luc+virus occurred approximately two days later than the MPXV-Congo/Luc+. The ovary was an important target for viral replication as evidenced by the high viral titers and immunohistochemistry. These studies demonstrate the suitability of a mouse model and biophotonic imaging to compare the disease progression and tissue tropism of MPX viruses.

  18. Two-step amplification of the human PPT sequence provides specific gene expression in an immunocompetent murine prostate cancer model.

    The recombinant prostate-specific PPT sequence comprises a prostate-specific antigen enhancer, a PSMA enhancer and a TARP promoter. It is transcriptionally active in human prostate cancer cells both in the presence and absence of testosterone. However, in experimental murine prostate cancer, it has no detectable transcriptional activity. Herein, we describe that the PPT sequence in combination with a two-step transcriptional amplification (TSTA) system becomes active also in murine prostate cancer cells. An adenovirus with TSTA-amplified PPT-controlled expression of the luciferase reporter gene, Ad[PPT/TSTA-Luc], has up to 100-fold higher prostate-specific transcriptional activity than a non-amplified PPT-based adenovirus, Ad[PPT-Luc], in human cells. In addition, Ad[PPT/TSTA-Luc] confers prostate-specific transgene expression in murine cells, with an activity that is approximately 23% of Ad[CMV-Luc] in the transgenic adenocarcinoma of the mouse prostate (TRAMP)-C2 cells. Moreover, to visualize luciferase expression in living mice a charge-coupled device camera was used. Ad[PPT/TSTA-Luc] yielded approximately 30-fold higher transgene expression than Ad[PPT-Luc] in LNCaP tumor xenografts. Importantly, Ad[PPT/TSTA-Luc] also showed activity in murine TRAMP-C2 tumors, whereas Ad[PPT-Luc] activity was undetectable. These results highlight that the recombinant PPT sequence is active in murine prostate cancer cells when augmented by a TSTA system. This finding opens up for preclinical studies with prostate-specific therapeutic gene expression in immunocompetent mice.
