    Eve, Curie

    1942-01-01

    Marie Curie is a women who changed the face of science for all time, not just because of her discovery of the radioactive element Radium and her work with it, but because of her incredible strides forward in a such a male dominated world as laboratory science at the turn of the 19th century. This is the Madame Curie many people know but here is a biography written by her daughter Eve that shows her human side, in a way that can only be viewed and admired from a family member describing her as a caring mother, devoted and passionate wife. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive.

    2006-01-01

    A new measurement device has been invented at the Naval Research Laboratory which images instantaneously the intensity vector throughout a three-dimensional volume nearly a meter on a side. The measurement device consists of a nearly transparent spherical array of 50 inexpensive microphones optimally positioned on an imaginary spherical surface of radius 0.2m. Front-end signal processing uses coherence analysis to produce multiple, phase-coherent holograms in the frequency domain each related to references located on suspect sound sources in an aircraft cabin. The analysis uses either SVD or Cholesky decomposition methods using ensemble averages of the cross-spectral density with the fixed references. The holograms are mathematically processed using spherical NAH (nearfield acoustical holography) to convert the measured pressure field into a vector intensity field in the volume of maximum radius 0.4 m centered on the sphere origin. The utility of this probe is evaluated in a detailed analysis of a recent in-flight experiment in cooperation with Boeing and NASA on NASA s Aries 757 aircraft. In this experiment the trim panels and insulation were removed over a section of the aircraft and the bare panels and windows were instrumented with accelerometers to use as references for the VAIM. Results show excellent success at locating and identifying the sources of interior noise in-flight in the frequency range of 0 to 1400 Hz. This work was supported by NASA and the Office of Naval Research.

  5. Flaubert and the retranslation of Madame Bovary

    Full Text Available Dans toute l’œuvre de Flaubert, c’est Madame Bovary qui a connu la fréquence de retraduction la plus haute dans la littérature britannique. Une étude de ces retraductions montre comment et quand elles sont apparues au sein d’une configuration socioculturelle et économique en train d’évoluer. Cette approche historique réexamine les hypothèses admises jusqu’à présent en ce qui concerne le rôle de la retraduction : au lieu d’une trajectoire simple, d’une première traduction déficiente vers une retraduction récente et parfaite, nous découvrons un paysage plus complexe. Avec Madame Bovary, nous pouvons évaluer jusqu’à quel point sont brouillés les critères de la retraduction, et identifier les signes d’un retour en arrière, les luttes pour se distinguer des traductions précédentes, aussi bien que l’impact collectif de ce corpus.Of all Flaubert’s works, Madame Bovary holds the accolade of being subject to the highest frequency of retranslation in the British literary system. A survey of these diverse retranslations affords an insight into when and how the versions arose amidst varying socio-cultural and economic configurations. This historical approach sheds new light on previous assumptions regarding the role of retranslation: rather than following a straightforward path from defective initial translation to accomplished recent retranslation, a more complex picture emerges. With Madame Bovary we can see how the boundaries of retranslation become blurred, and can identify evidence of regression, struggles for differentiation, as well as the collective significance of this corpus.

  6. Madame Bovary and Catastrophism: Revolving narratives

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Ruth Morris

    2011-07-01

    Full Text Available Cet article relie Madame Bovary au contexte scientifique français des années 1850, en lisant le roman de Flaubert à la lumière des théories de Cuvier. Le savant français Georges Cuvier, avec nombre de ses contemporains, explique les origines du monde à l’aide de la théorie des catastrophes. D’après cette théorie, le monde est divisé en périodes très courtes ponctuées de grandes catastrophes ou, en termes cuviériens, de « révolutions » qui ont éradiqué toute vie et ont permis au monde d’être entièrement repeuplé. Une telle conception affecte l’idée même du « temps ». Cuvier pense que la formation de la Terre est relativement récente, l’époque présente n’étant vieille que de cinq mille ans. Cette compression temporelle peut être rapportée à Madame Bovary dont le « tempo » s’accroît au fur et à mesure qu’on se rapproche du dénouement. Dans la théorie des catastrophes comme dans le roman, le temps ne suit pas une ligne chronologique. Les « révolutions » viennent briser le fil continu du temps et Emma est souvent incapable de distinguer entre le passé, le présent et le futur. Les « révolutions » servent aussi à ponctuer et à perturber le cours de la vie sur Terre en produisant des événements majeurs dans l’histoire du globe. Il en est de même dans la vie d’Emma. Son existence est marquée par des événements majeurs, comme le bal, qui créent un éclatement et une fragmentation de la temporalité, comme dans la théorie de Cuvier. Je défendrai aussi l’idée d’un lien entre la soudaineté et la violence des « révolutions » et les crises nerveuses d’Emma, qui surviennent brusquement et relèvent de l’hystérie. La conception cuviérienne de la temporalité doit enfin être envisagée au regard des théories de l’évolution, ce qui implique de réévaluer les notions d’adaptation, d’hérédité et de mort dans le roman de Flaubert.This paper locates Madame

    The Multiple Assay Dual Analysis Measurement (MADAM) system is a combined low-level and transuranic waste assay system. The system integrates commercially available Segmented Gamma Scanner (SGS) capability with a multienergy x-ray and gamma-ray analysis to measure these two waste forms. In addition, the system incorporates a small neutron slab detector to satisfy safeguards concerns and the capability for automated high-resolution gamma-ray analysis for isotope identification. Since delivery of the system to this facility, an evaluation of the waste measurement characteristics of the system has been conducted. A set of specially constructed NIST-traceable standards was fabricated for calibration and evaluation of the low-level waste (LLW) measurement system. The measurement characteristics of the LLW assay system were determined during the evaluation, including detection limits for all isotopes of interest, matrix attenuation effects, and detector response as a function of source position. Based on these studies, several modifications to the existing analysis algorithms have been performed, new correction factors for matrix attenuation have been devised, and measurement error estimates have been calculated and incorporated into the software.

    Introduction: 11 C]MADAM is a radioligand suitable for PET studies of the serotonin transporter (SERT). Metabolite analysis in human and non-human plasma samples using HPLC separation has shown that [ 11 C]MADAM was rapidly metabolized. A possible metabolic pathway is the S-oxidation which could lead to SOMADAM and SO 2 MADAM. In vitro evaluation of these two potential metabolites has shown that SOMADAM exhibited a good affinity for SERT and a good selectivity for SERT over NET and DAT. Methods: Comparative PET imaging studies in non-human primate brain with [ 11 C]MADAM and [ 11 C]SOMADAM were carried out, and plasma samples were analyzed using reverse phase HPLC. We have explored the metabolism of [ 11 C]MADAM in rat brain with a view to understand its possible interference for brain imaging with PET. Results: PET imaging studies in non-human primate brain using [ 11 C]SOMADAM indicated that this tracer does not bind with high amounts to brain regions known to be rich in SERT. The fraction of [ 11 C]SOMADAM in non-human primate plasma was approximately 5% at 4 min and 1% at 15 min after [ 11 C]MADAM injection. HPLC analysis of brain sample after [ 11 C]MADAM injection to rats demonstrated that [ 11 C]SOMADAM was not detected in the brain. Conclusions: 11 C]SOMADAM is not superior over [ 11 C]MADAM as a SERT PET radioligand. Nevertheless, [ 11 C]SOMADAM has been identified as a minor labeled metabolite of [ 11 C]MADAM measured in monkey plasma. [ 11 C]SOMADAM was not detected in rat brain

  12. Estrategias discursivas irónicas en Madame Bovary

    2018-04-01

    Full Text Available Taking as a starting point the Rainer Warning’s study on Flaubert, this article analyses the specific procedures that allow for the ironic coexistence of romantic discourse and realistic discourse in Madame Bovary. Here we focus on a particularly complex fragment of the novel –its intricacy due to the wealth of narrative voices and stylistic resources– to describe, on the one hand, the hiatuses that in the text mark an interruption of romantic discourse and the shift to realistic discourse, and, on the other, the dilogical confluence of voices where both discourses overlap. However, we conclude that such dichotomies can only exist on a theoretical frame. All mechanisms induce the reader to focus on language, produc-ing a distancing effect and “levelling” the text. Sur la base de l’étude de Rainer Warning sur Flaubert, cet article analyse les pro-cédés qui permettent la coexistence ironique du discours réaliste et du discours romantique dans Madame Bovary. En nous appuyant sur un fragment du roman particulièrement complexe par sa richesse vocale et stylistique, nous examinons deux types de dichotomies: les hiatus du texte qui signalent l’interruption du discours romantique et l’introduction du discours réaliste, d’une part; d’autre part, la confluence dilogique de voix qui comporte une superposition des deux discours. Nous concluons cependant que cette double dichotomie ne peut exister que sur un plan théorique. Dans la mesure où tous les mécanismes étudiés focalisent l’attention du lecteur sur le langage, ils provoquent un effet de distanciation et contribuent au « nivellement » du texte.

    Full Text Available Madame Bovary est un roman bruyant. Depuis le rire des écoliers jusqu’au chant de l’aveugle, Flaubert ne cesse de faire appel à l’ouïe. Que ce soit le son des cloches, le ronflement continu du tour de Binet ou le meuglement des vaches (pour ne mentionner que quelques-uns des nombreux bruits évoqués, la musique de la vie quotidienne en province fait partie intégrante de la narration. Rien de plus facile au cinéaste que de reproduire à l’écran ce mimétisme sonore du texte réaliste. Pourtant, une analyse de la bande-son de diverses adaptations révèle une interprétation souvent originale du texte.  Les ressources de la sonothèque ainsi que l’exploitation de diverses techniques relatives à la piste sonore (voix-off, musique diégétique et extra-diégétique, etc. permettent aux cinéastes de mettre leur propre griffe à leurs adaptations.Madame Bovary is a noisy novel. From the laughter of the school children to the blind man’s song, Flaubert constantly appeals to the sense of hearing. Whether it be the ringing of church bells, the continuous humming of Binet’s lathe or the lowing of cattle (to mention only a few of the numerous sounds evoked in the novel, the music of daily life in the provinces is an integral part of the narration.  Theoretically, there is nothing easier for the filmmaker than to reproduce on the screen this sonorous mimicry of the realist text. However, an analysis of the soundtrack of various adaptations reveals an often original interpretation of the text. The resources of the sound effects library as well as the exploitation of certain techniques associated with the soundtrack (voiceover, diegetic and extra-diegetic music, etc. allow filmmakers to put their own stamp on their adaptations.

De multiples anomalies ayant été ainsi décelées, j'ai été amenée à retraduire ce grand classique. Il m'a semblé profitable à la recherche flaubertienne d'exposer les difficultés et leurs résolutions, d'ordre purement linguistique ou civilisationnel, que l'on se place sur le plan de la lecture (compréhension du texte ou sur celui du rendu dans la langue d'arrivée. Le choix des points litigieux ne se limite pas au simple discours mais touche aussi à la problématique des noms propres (peut-on les traduire ? faut-il avoir recours aux fameuses notes de traducteur ? et, en conséquence logique, à celle du titre. Les exemples concrets viennent étayer une pratique traduisante et la mettre en relation avec la critique, l'histoire littéraire et la création flaubertienne dans son ensemble.I intend to address in this paper the concrete problems I encountered when translating into Romanian FLAUBERT’s major work, Madame Bovary. First of all, its nature of retranslation has to be specified, since an existing version, published in the 1970s by a Romanian poet (Demostene Botez, was in fact in circulation when I started working on the original text. This previous translation was probably the result of a collective operation, as the split rhythm suggests at several points. In the meantime, other publishers saw fit to print additional versions in great haste. However, a mere examination of the problematic passages is sufficient enough to realize that the authors of the new versions only limited themselves to take up the first one. They improved the text here and there, “updated” some expressions, while keeping the glaring errors of Botez’s version.

    2010-03-01

    Full Text Available Abstract Background Meta-analysis is a major theme in biomedical research. In the present paper we introduce a package for R and Bioconductor that provides useful tools for performing this type of work. One idea behind the development of MADAM was that many meta-analysis methods, which are available in R, are not able to use the capacities of parallel computing yet. In this first version, we implemented one meta-analysis method in such a parallel manner. Additionally, we provide tools for combining the results from a set of methods in an ensemble approach. Functionality for visualization of results is also provided. Results The presented package enables the carrying out of meta-analysis either by providing functions directly or by wrapping them to existing implementations. Overall, five different meta-analysis methods are now usable through MADAM, along with another three methods for combining the corresponding results. Visualizing the results is eased by three included functions. For developing and testing meta-analysis methods, a mock up data generator is integrated. Conclusions The use of MADAM enables a user to focus on one package, in turn enabling them to work with the same data types across a set of methods. By making use of the snow package, MADAM can be made compatible with an existing parallel computing infrastructure. MADAM is open source and freely available within CRAN http://cran.r-project.org.

    The paper deals with the transformation of Flaubert's free indirect speech in the film Madame Bovary by Claude Chabrol. Conversion of free indirect speech into direct speech or into narration by an external narrator (voice-over) cannot be avoided, it does, however, pose many problems because of the potential ambiguousness (polyphony) of free indirect speech. In such cases, Chabrol often finds effective solutions which bring the film closer to Flaubert's style. Nevertheless, it remains clear t...

Pour cela, en effectuant une petite mise au point grammaticale, nous comparons sept traductions de Madame Bovary de Gustave Flaubert, dont les dates de parution s’étendent sur une cinquantaine d’années. Cette période s’apparente, de notre point de vue, à un long itinéraire pour assimiler la notion occidentale des styles direct et indirect, tout en la conciliant avec les particularités du japonais. D’un autre côté, ce travail acharné des traducteurs a influencé quelque peu la langue japonaise. On trouve dans l’annexe tous les textes en japonais examinés.We will examine the difficulties met when translating Western literary texts in Japanese, in particular the problem of indirect and free indirect styles. We will define the grammatical issue and compare seven translations of Madame Bovary, published over a fifty year period. This time can be likened to a long path taken to digest the Western notion of direct and indirect styles, while reconciling it with Japanese language characteristics. On the other hand the translators’ relentless work has somewhat influenced the Japanese language. The annex will present all the Japanese texts examined.

    Previously, the important hardware features and capabilities for the Multiple Assay Dual Analysis Measurement (MADAM) system were reported. MADAM is a combined low-level and transuranic waste assay system. The system integrated commercially available Segmented Gamma Scanner (SGS) capability together with multienergy X-ray and gamma-ray analysis to measure these two waste forms. In addition, the system incorporated a small neutron slab detector to satisfy safeguards concerns and high resolution gamma-ray isotopics analysis proficiency. Since delivery of the system to this facility, an evaluation of its low-level waste measurement performance has been conducted using a set of specially constructed NIST-traceable standards. The evaluation studied existing analysis algorithms, matrix and attenuation effects, source position as a function of detector response, instrument stability, and sensitivity. Based on these studies, several modifications to the existing analysis algorithms have been performed, new correction factors for matrix attenuation have been devised, and measurement error estimates have been calculated and incorporated into the software. This report discusses the results of the evaluation program and the software modifications that have been developed.

    Full Text Available As luzes do Iluminismo francês consagradas por certa história da filosofia foram indubitavelmente as masculinas. As presenças de Voltaire, Rousseau e Diderot nas pesquisas e nas obras sobre o período são quase absolutas. A finalidade deste artigo é explorar as Luzes francesas, particularmente, a questão ética da felicidade, pelo olhar de uma razão tão ilustrada quanto a de Voltaire, Rousseau ou Diderot, porém de saiotes e espartilho: o pensamento de Émilie du Châtelet (1706-1749. Pouco conhecida pelo público brasileiro e menos estudada ainda pelos dix-huitièmistes locais, Madame du Châtelet, marquesa de berço, escreveu, por volta de 1746, um Discurso sobre a felicidade. O exame de algumas das teses e propostas éticas contidas nesse opúsculo é uma oportunidade instigante para se entenderem um pouco melhor não só as Luzes francesas, mas, sobretudo, a sensibilidade e as angústias das mulheres de vanguarda da França pré-revolucionária.The French Enlightenment distinguished by a certain history has been undoubtedly male, as reveals the almost exclusive presence of Voltaire, Rousseau and Diderot in the researches and works about that time. The aim of this study is to investigate the period, mainly approaching the ethical issue of happiness, but not through the looks of those celebrated male philosophers, but of a person in skirts and corselets: Émilie du Châtelet (1706-1749. Little known by the Brazilian readers, and little studied by the local experts on the 1800s, Madame du Châtelet, born a Marquise, wrote, around 1746, a Discourse on happiness. The examination of some of the thesis and ethical proposals contained in that opuscule is an instigating opportunity to understand better not only the French Enlightenment, but also the sensibility and anxieties of the vanguard women in the pre-revolutionary France.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    André Cechinel

    2013-01-01

    Full Text Available Critics have recently addressed the work of T. S. Eliot in an innovative way. Instead of resorting to the same old epithets, ‘royalist, classicist, Anglo-Catholic,’ Eliot has been described as a poet who constantly challenged the very tradition he wished to preserve, confusing the limits between high and low cultures in his poems. Still, when it comes to introducing his work to the reader, manuals of literature are frequently eager to preserve the traditional image that scholars of Eliot have fought to challenge. From the analysis of Madame Sosostris’ appearance in The Waste Land, this essay intends to show how this movement of resistance to different Eliot works. In a few words, not to lose control over the place Eliot occupies as a modern poet, some manuals impose interpretations that, at times, cannot grasp the complexity of his lines.Nas últimas décadas, a obra de T. S. Eliot tem sido abordada a partir de um ponto de vista diferenciado. Em vez de recorrer aos conhecidos epítetos, ‘monarquista, classicista e anglo-católico’, a crítica passa a ver Eliot como um poeta que, a rigor, desafia constantemente a própria tradição que deseja preservar, desestabilizando, pois, os limites entre o erudito e o popular em seus poemas. No entanto, quando se trata de apresentar sua obra ao leitor, os manuais de literatura com frequência revelam o intuito de sustentar essa imagem rígida que os estudiosos têm questionado. A partir da análise da figura de Madame Sosostris, a célebre vidente de The Waste Land, este ensaio se propõe a expor como funciona o movimento de resistência a um outro T. S. Eliot. Em poucas palavras, a fim de assegurar o local estável que o poeta ocupa no cânone modernista, os manuais impõem interpretações que não dão conta da instabilidade fundamental de seus versos.

    Full Text Available La Relation du voyage d’Espagne de Madame d’Aulnoy’s (1691 ha tenido una inmensa importancia literaria y puede considerarse como un espejo de la cultura de España y sus costumbres de finales del siglo XVII. Las descripciones de Madame d’Aulnoy no tienen como objetivo juzgar la cultura española ni son un intento de favorecer la cultura francesa en relación con la española. No obstante, la observación de la Otra cultura y costumbres le permiten definir su propia identidad como mujer francesa.  Este artículo analiza la forma en que la escritora francesa, Madame d’Aulnoy, retrata a las mujeres españolas y hasta qué punto los prejuicios y prácticas de la literatura de viajes clásica están presentes en sus descripciones.

    2013-12-01

    Full Text Available The paper deals with the transformation of Flaubert’s free indirect speech in the film Madame Bovary by Claude Chabrol. Conversion of free indirect speech into direct speech or into narration by an external narrator (voice-over cannot be avoided, it does, however, pose many problems because of the potential ambiguousness (polyphony of free indirect speech. In such cases, Chabrol often finds effective solutions which bring the film closer to Flaubert’s style. Nevertheless, it remains clear that film adaptations of literary masterpieces entail serious losses. Therefore teachers must convince students that film adaptations of high-quality literature can never replace literary works themselves. Literature and film are two different media, based on distinct types of artistic expression, and should be presented as such to students. As a consequence, film adaptations of literary masterpieces should not uncritically be considered as the most suitable material in all teaching contexts. Key words: Gustave Flaubert, Claude Chabrol, Madame Bovary, free indirect speech, literature and film

    Full Text Available Dans cet article nous examinons la réception dе Madame de Genlis chez plusieurs auteurs russes du XIXe siècle. Pouchkine la nomma « écrivailleuse sans talent », malgré le fait que ses Mémoires suscitaient son grand intérêt. Léon Tolstoï utilisa le nom de Madame de Genlis dans Guerre et Paix pour mettre en relief le caractère de ses protagonistes : Koutouzov et Vé-ra Rostova. Leskov écrivit un petit chef-d'oeuvre, L’Esprit de Madame de Genlis, sur sa déifica-tion dans la haute société. La réception de Madame de Genlis en Russie paraît étroitement liée au statut aristocratique de son oeuvre, qui servit ainsi de modèle culturel aux élites fran-cophiles russes.

    Behavioral addictions, such as pathological gambling (PG) and binge eating disorder (BED), appear to be associated with specific changes in brain dopamine and opioid function, but the role of other neurotransmitter systems is less clear. Given the crucial role of serotonin in a number of psychiatric disorders, we aimed to compare brain serotonergic function among individuals with BED, PG and healthy controls. Seven BED patients, 13 PG patients and 16 healthy controls were scanned with high-resolution positron emission tomography (PET) using the serotonin transporter (SERT) tracer [ 11 C]MADAM. Both region-of-interest and voxel-wise whole brain analyses were performed. Patients with BED showed increased SERT binding in the parieto-occipital cortical regions compared to both PG and healthy controls, with parallel decreases in binding in the nucleus accumbens, inferior temporal gyrus and lateral orbitofrontal cortex. No differences between PG patients and controls were observed. None of the subjects were on SSRI medications at the time of imaging, and there were no differences in the level of depression between PG and BED patients. The results highlight differences in brain SERT binding between individuals with BED and PG and provide further evidence of different neurobiological underpinnings in behavioral addictions that are unrelated to the co-existing mood disorder. The results aid in the conceptualization of behavioral addictions by characterizing the underlying serotonin changes and provide a framework for additional studies to examine syndrome-specific pharmaceutical treatments.

  15. Passion simple and Madame, c'est à vous que j'écris: "That's MY Desire"

    2001-06-01

    Full Text Available No two texts better exemplify the contemporary "he said, she said" phenomenon than Annie Ernaux's Passion simple and Alain Gérard's Madame, c'est à vous que j'écris . Ernaux's book, published in 1991, recounts the author's heretofore hidden affair with a foreign businessman living temporarily in France, and Gérard's, published four years later, is an explicit response in which the writer, dissatisfied with Ernaux's account, assumes the lover's identity and chronicles events from his perspective. The result is a literary "tac à tac" very much in the public eye in which a man and woman both wish to tell their side of the story about a past sexual relationship. For her part, Ernaux gives primacy to woman as sexual subject and describes an erotic economy where the lover is nothing more than simple support for the female imaginary. Gérard responds to Ernaux's reduction of the lover to pure sex object by reestablishing his primacy as well as that of the phallus, around which desire has traditionally revolved. Indeed, what is most intriguing about this unusual pair is their disagreement over the definition of desire, and thus, how they illustrate the fundamental feminist notion that gender informs writing as well as reading.

    Full Text Available Madame de Genlis est connue comme une critique des philosophes grâce à son dialogue Les dîners du baron d’Holbach (1822. Son tableau d’une sociabilité positive, Les soupers chez la maréchale de Luxembourg (1828, est beaucoup moins connu. Les soupers posent l’idéal d’une socialibilité de cour comme étant supérieure à ce qu’elle voyait comme la sociabilité perverse des Lumières et l’incivilité de la période révolutionnaire. Mais ces dialogues sont loin d’être une simple représentation historique de la conversation dans la haute société. Ils sont plutôt des modèles pratiques pour l’art de la conversation, conçus pour fournir un remède moral à une société divisée. Issus de son expérience comme salonnière à la Bibliothèque de l’Arsenal, les dialogues fictionnalisés des années 1820 ré-inventent l’idée de la sociabilité au XVIIIe siècle pour convenir aux goûts des lideurs du XIXe siècle.

    Saint-Paul, U; Schneider, H

    2016-07-01

    The main objective of the bilateral German-Brazilian mangrove development and management (MADAM) programme (mangrove dynamics and management) was to generate the scientific basis to enable the sustainable stewardship of the resources of the Caeté mangrove estuary in north-east Brazil in the sense of integrated coastal (zone) management. Main emphasis was given to fishes and crabs captured by artisanal fishermen. This paper describes the project strategy as developed and modified in the context of research results obtained over a period of 10 years. It is argued that a continuous discussion process is essential to assess the validity of the strategies formulated at the beginning of a medium-term project, particularly if the project is of an interdisciplinary nature. To achieve this, it was necessary to acquire in-depth knowledge of natural processes as well as of the relevant institutional, cultural, economic, social and political dynamics. © 2016 The Fisheries Society of the British Isles.

  1. Serotonin transporter occupancy by escitalopram and citalopram in the non-human primate brain: a [(11)C]MADAM PET study.

    A number of serotonin receptor positron emission tomography (PET) radioligands have been shown to be sensitive to changes in extracellular serotonin concentration, in a generalization of the well-known dopamine competition model. High doses of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) decrease serotonin receptor availability in monkey brain, consistent with increased serotonin concentrations. However, two recent studies on healthy human subjects, using a single, lower and clinically relevant SSRI dose, showed increased cortical serotonin receptor radioligand binding, suggesting potential decreases in serotonin concentration in projection regions when initiating treatment. The cross-species differential SSRI effect may be partly explained by serotonin transporter (SERT) occupancy in monkey brain being higher than is clinically relevant. We here determine SERT occupancy after single doses of escitalopram or citalopram by conducting PET measurements with [(11)C]MADAM in monkeys. Relationships between dose, plasma concentration and SERT occupancy were estimated by one-site binding analyses. Binding affinity was expressed as dose (ID50) or plasma concentration (K i) where 50 % SERT occupancy was achieved. Estimated ID50 and K i values were 0.020 mg/kg and 9.6 nmol/L for escitalopram and 0.059 mg/kg and 9.7 nmol/L for citalopram, respectively. Obtained K i values are comparable to values reported in humans. Escitalopram or citalopram doses nearly saturated SERT in previous monkey studies which examined serotonin sensitivity of receptor radioligands. PET-measured cross-species differential effects of SSRI on cortical serotonin concentration may thus be related to SSRI dose. Future monkey studies using SSRI doses inducing clinically relevant SERT occupancy may further illuminate the delayed onset of SSRI therapeutic effects.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Luke Bouvier

    2011-07-01

    Full Text Available Des études récentes ont mis en lumière le « désordre temporel » d’Emma Bovary, son étrange inaptitude à produire un événement dans sa vie ou à intégrer le temps dans son expérience. Une scène clé à cet égard est celle où, curieusement, Emma échoue à pleurer la mort de sa mère alors même qu’elle met en place tout un rituel romantique du chagrin qui n’aboutit qu’à l’indifférence et à l’ennui. Élaborée à partir d’un schéma psychanalytique assez vaste qui englobe les dernières recherches sur le traumatisme et l’addiction, cette étude montre que cette scène est symptomatique d’une incapacité plus large à assimiler la perte, qui se manifeste à travers les problèmes d’ennui et d’addiction, ainsi que par l’incapacité générale d’Emma à s’orienter par rapport au passé. Les implications linguistiques de ce problème sont particulièrement importantes : un tel trouble temporel lié à un défaut de deuil peut en effet être lu précisément à travers les perturbations du langage qui en résultent. Dans la figure étrange et indéchiffrable de la mère Rollet, par exemple, on peut discerner l’aventure cryptique du langage qui se produit à partir du problème de la perte mal assimilée, la conspiration de mots qui conduit Emma au suicide par la mise en place de retours équivoques du signifiant. En dernier ressort, si l’échec d’Emma à faire le deuil de sa mère est révélateur d’une certaine inaptitude à faire le deuil du temps lui-même, cette scène initiale marque aussi l’incapacité ou le refus d’Emma de faire son deuil d’une esthétique morte. Quand Emma satisfait son goût pour l’imagerie romantique en écoutant « tous les chants de cygnes mourants », ce qu’elle n’entend pas est précisément le caractère stéréotypé et dégradé d’une telle imagerie, l’équivoque romantique se manifestant à travers un champ de signes mourants.Recent studies have focused on Emma Bovary's “temporal disorder”, her strange inability to produce an event in her life or to integrate time into her experience. A key scene in this regard is Emma's odd failure to mourn her mother as she acts out a set of elaborate romantic grief rituals that ultimately leave her bored and unmoved. Drawing on a broadly psychoanalytic framework, and in particular recent work on trauma and addiction, this study suggests that this scene is symptomatic of a broader inability to assimilate loss, which manifests itself in the problems of boredom and addiction, and in Emma's general inability to orient herself temporally with respect to the past. Of particular importance are the linguistic implications of this problem, the way in which such a temporal disorder linked to a failure of mourning can be read precisely through the disturbances of language that it provokes. In the odd, inscrutable figure of la mère Rollet, for example, one can discern the cryptic adventure of language that arises from the problem of unassimilated loss in this novel, the very conspiracy of words that drives Emma to suicide through the staging of equivocal, uncanny returns.  Ultimately, if Emma's failure to mourn her mother reveals a certain inability to mourn time itself, this scene unmistakably depicts Emma's inability or refusal to mourn a dead aesthetic as well. Indeed, when Emma indulges her taste for romantic imagery in listening to “les chants de cygnes mourants”, what she fails to hear is precisely the clichéd, worn-out nature of such imagery, romanticism's equivocal double voicing as a champ de signes mourants.

    Full Text Available Resumen: Los abogados normalmente se limitan al estricto análisis jurídico de los textos legales, sin tomar en consideración los significados jurídicos de los hechos sociales o de las obras literarias. Este trabajo no consiste en determinar, por ejemplo, los delitos cometidos por los personajes de la novela o de su autor, sino en revisar las implicaciones del arte mismo en el mundo jurídico. A través de una reflexión sobre la libertad y la moral, nos invita a valorar el impacto de la Edad Moderna en el arte y el derecho.Abstract: Lawyers are usually limited to strict analysis of legal texts, without taking into consideration the legal meanings of social facts or literary works. This article do not search to determine, for example, the crimes committed by the characters of the novel or by its author, but to revise the implications of art itself in the legal field. Through a reflection on freedom and morality, the author invites us to assess the impact of the Modern Era in art and law.

  3. In the foot steps of Madame Curie: A cross-case study of female undergraduate physics majors

    Science.gov (United States)

    Jaladanki, Vani Savithri

    Females are disproportionately underrepresented in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) majors. Further, the number of females who take physics in college has declined. While female students make up 61% of graduates in biological sciences and 50% in chemistry, the proportion of women completing physics degrees is only 21% (Sawtelle, 2011). In order to improve women's access to science and engineering education, research must focus on personal and environmental factors that motivate them to select these fields (AAUW, 2010). The purpose of this study was to explore how the educational experiences of three female undergraduate physics majors contribute to their current dispositions toward, interest in, and pursuit of physics as a major at a large southern research university. This qualitative study employs symbolic interactionism (Blumer, 1969) as its methodological framework and social cognitive career theory (Lent, Brown, & Hackett, 2002) as its theoretical framework. Case study methods (Yin, 2006) were implemented to investigate the experiences of three participants. The primary sources of data included critical incident interviews (Flanagan, 1954), photographs, documents, object elicitations, and the researcher's reflections. Narrative and arts-based techniques were employed to analyze and represent data. Findings are presented as co-constructed narratives of the participants' journeys to becoming undergraduate physics majors. Three major themes emerged from the cross case analysis: carving new spaces, authoring an empowered self, and show me you care and so will I. The direct experiences of engaging with science at a young age and social persuasions of family members, teachers, and peers strongly influenced the participants' interest in and pursuit of physics. Their current dispositions to physics result from vicarious experiences with professors and peers in combination with the social persuasions of the latter. This study informs science educators in general, and physics educators in particular, about how to motivate and enable female students to engage with physics and possibly pursue it as a career choice. Three major implications for practice were suggested: teach science as a vibrant field, enable students to understand failure as an opportunity to succeed, and shift the focus from competition to collaboration.

  4. Imaging the experiments on respiration and transpiration of Lavoisier and Séguin: two unknown drawings by Madame Lavoisier.

    Beretta, Marco

    2012-01-01

    This paper presents two hitherto unknown drawings by Marie-Anne-Pierrette Lavoisier dating to the early 1790s that illustrate the experiments on respiration and transpiration of her husband Antoine-Laurent Lavoisier and his assistant Armand Séguin. These works may be associated with the well-known sepia drawings that were published for the first time by Edouard Grimaux in 1888. Details contained in these newly discovered drawings by M.me Lavoisier provide fresh evidence as to the nature and aims of Lavoisier's innovative experiments. As we will show, these drawings were intended to illustrate the collection of papers on respiration being prepared by Lavoisier for his Mémoires de physique et de chimie (1792-1805).

    A presente resenha visa analisar a nova tradução de La orgía perpetua, realizada por José Rubens Siqueira, e publicada em 2015. Publicado originalmente em 1975, La Orgía perpetua é o terceiro livro de crítica de Vargas Llosa; antes ele já havia escrito Bases para una interpretación de Ruben Darío (1958 e García Márquez: historia de un deicídio (1971. É comum a crítica afirmar que La Orgía perpetua é uma das portas de entrada para os estudos flaubertianos, o que não deixa de ser uma verdade, mas essa obra também pode ser lida como um “confessionário crítico”, já que Llosa assume nesse livro a influência recebida de Flaubert. Assim, La orgía perpetua pode interessar tanto aos estudiosos da obra de Gustave Flaubert, quanto aos estudiosos de Vargas Llosa.  Por A orgia perpétua se tratar de um livro de crítica literária e não de ficção, encontramos um texto em que Vargas Llosa não explora tanto os recursos estilísticos da língua espanhola, mais especificamente do espanhol “callejero” peruano, como o faz em livros como As cidades e os cachorros. Desse modo, ao analisarmos a tradução de Siqueira, percebemos que esse tradutor se ateve ao estilo claro e direto da prosa ensaística de Vargas Llosa.

    Full Text Available This paper is devoted to the analysis of the first novel from Mme Riccoboni, Letters of Mistriss Fanni Butlerd (1757. In this monologic epistolary novel, passion is understood as “invisible” whereas its different expressions are “visible”. As a result, it presents a sort of “game” on three levels – narration, characters, objects –, which brings out not only the progress of passion in the heroine’s heart but also the humorous and light-hearted writing typical of Mme Riccoboni’s.

    2012-06-01

    Full Text Available Ao longo do século 19, a educação da mulher merece atenção de diversos atores sociais, que enfatizam o seu importante papel social, por ter multiplicado a soma de seus deveres a cumprir como filha, esposa, mãe e até como professora. Nesse sentido, sua formação passa a ser amplamente discutida, visando prepará-Ia a desempenhar as funções a que estava destinada na sociedade, ou seja, fazer de cada aluna uma verdadeira dona de casa. Essa imagem modélica forjada pela ilustração brasileira foi dada pela disciplina economia doméstica, presente no currículo da Escola de Primeiras Letras desde a primeira lei de Instrução Pública Nacional, de 1827. Esse estudo pretende analisar o discurso fundador da economia doméstica no Brasil, privilegiando a análise do primeiro livro de leitura destinado à escola primária e, posteriormente, às aulas de sexo feminino do Imperial Liceu de Artes e Ofícios do Rio de Janeiro (1881. Palavras-chave: leituras de formação, economia doméstica, educação da mulher.   Abstract During 19 century, women education deserves attention from diverse social actors who emphasize their important social role for having multiplied their duties as daughters, wives, mothers and even as teachers. Therefore their forrnation starts being widely discussed, with the objective of preparing them to perform functions in the society that is, making of each student a real housewife. This model image, forged by the Brazilian intellectual elite, was taught in the discipline domestic economy, part of the curriculum of Escola de Primeiras Letras since the first law for Public National Instruction of 1827. This study intends to analyze the discourse of domestic economy in Brazil, analyzing the first book destined to primary school and, afterward, to the female classes at Imperial Liceu de Artes e Ofícios in Rio de Janeiro ( 1881 .

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Péroz Pierre

    2014-07-01

    Full Text Available A l’école maternelle, les enfants n’ont pas les compétences métalinguistiques qui leur permettraient de convoquer aisément l’image du mot isolé, voire d’imaginer ses contextes d’emplois ou ses différentes acceptions, comme peuvent le faire les apprenants qui sont déjà des lecteurs-scripteurs. De ce fait, les travaux sur l’apprentissage du lexique en contexte scolaire ne portent généralement pas sur la période pré-élémentaire. Comment les élèves apprennent-ils le vocabulaire qu’on leur présente au fil des séances disciplinaires ? Comment apprennent-ils des mots nouveaux, ou comment apprennent-ils les emplois différents des mots qu’ils connaissent déjà ? La communication présente les résultats de l’analyse d’un corpus transcrit d’une analyse d’une quinzaine de séances de langage en grande et en moyenne section. Elle montre que les procédures de reprise ou de reformulation qui sont à l’origine de l’apprentissage du lexique reposent essentiellement sur des mécanismes interactionnels, quel que soit le niveau des élèves. Plus les élèves sont faibles plus, ils ont besoin du matériel verbal déjà présent dans les échanges pour construire leurs propres interventions. Mais, c’est la même procédure que mobilisent les meilleurs élèves, à ceci près qu’ils sont capables aussi dans le même temps de l’appliquer à leur propre intervention. En s’appuyant sur des éléments verbaux déjà donnés et en reformulant des propositions qu’ils ont eux-mêmes construites, ils sont capables d’introduire dans des contextes adaptés des termes nouveaux dans leur intervention. Ce faisant, ils construisent les interventions les plus longues mais aussi qualitativement les plus intéressantes sur le plan lexical. Mais qu’on ne se méprenne pas, pour l’ensemble des élèves, c’est le développement de leurs compétences langagières, leur capacité à interagir avec les autres, qui est toujours le moteur des procédures de réemploi des termes au cours de la séance.

  9. Characterization of stratification for an opaque highly stable magnetorheological fluid using vertical axis inductance monitoring system

    Xie, Lei; Choi, Young-Tai; Liao, Chang-Rong; Wereley, Norman M.

    2015-05-01

    A key requirement for the commercialization of various magnetorheological fluid (MRF)-based applications is sedimentation stability. In this study, a high viscosity linear polysiloxane (HVLP), which has been used for shock absorbers in heavy equipment, is proposed as a new carrier fluid in highly stable MRFs. The HVLP is known to be a thixotropic (i.e., shear thinning) fluid that shows very high viscosity at very low shear rate and low viscosity at higher shear rate. In this study, using the shear rheometer, the significant thixotropic behavior of the HVLP was experimentally confirmed. In addition, a HVLP carrier fluid-based MRF (HVLP MRF) with 26 vol. % was synthesized and its sedimentation characteristics were experimentally investigated. But, because of the opacity of the HVLP MRF, no mudline can be visually observed. Hence, a vertical axis inductance monitoring system (VAIMS) applied to a circular column of fluid was used to evaluate sedimentation behavior by correlating measured inductance with the volume fraction of dispersed particles (i.e., Fe). Using the VAIMS, Fe concentration (i.e., volume fraction) was monitored for 28 days with a measurement taken every four days, as well as one measurement after 96 days to characterize long-term sedimentation stability. Finally, the concentration of the HVLP MRF as a function of the depth in the column and time, as well as the concentration change versus the depth in the column, are presented and compared with those of a commercially available MRF (i.e., Lord MRF-126CD).

  16. An enhanced decision support technique under uncertainty to power system design evaluation

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Eskandar, H.; Asgharpoor, M.J.

    2001-10-01

    Multiple attribute decision making (Madam) methods have been widely used in power systems decision problems. This paper presents an enhanced Madam method to help decision makers (DMS) study the influencing factors in the design of power systems. In many Madam problems, however, the information available to the Dm is often imprecise due to the inaccurate measurements and inconsistent priority judgments. The proposed Madam methodology is based on the analytical hierarchy process (Ah) incorporated into the construction procedure of linear additive utility models to quantify the various divergences of opinions, practices and events that lead to confusion and uncertainties in planning. Such practice could help the Dm gain insight into how the imprecise data may affect their choice toward the best solution and how a set of acceptable alternatives may be identified with certain confidence. Sample case study in the design of a hybrid solar-wind power system is provided to illustrate the concepts introduced in this paper. Factors in planning the design of a hybrid solar-wind power system relate mainly to political and social conditions, and to technical advances and economics

  14. When police act as pimps: glimpses into child prostitution in India.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Debabrata, R

    1998-01-01

    A random sample of 28 out of 86 brothels along the G. B. Road in India revealed that almost 60% of the prostitutes were children. The law does not punish prostitutes who are older than 18 and do not solicit business publicly, but it does punish running a brothel, living on the earnings of prostitutes, procuring or inducing people to become prostitutes, and soliciting in public places. The law, which is mostly used to harass prostitutes, invokes penalties of imprisonment for procuring or trafficking and for forcible detention for the purpose of prostitution while creating a special police force to stop trafficking, special courts to deal with cases, and protective homes for "rescued" girls. The law fails to punish clients or make provisions for the rehabilitation of rescued women. Offenses rarely end in convictions. In fact, police officers extort money from traffickers, prostitutes, and madams and abet the system of prostitution through a scheme of false registration of the girls that creates the fiction that they are not minors and creates a debt paid by the madams that places the girls in virtual bondage. There is a set rate for police bribes, depending upon the size of the brothel. Police also are clients themselves and/or extort money from clients. When arrests are made (to make police records look good), police deliberately target adult prostitutes instead of the minors because it is harder to get the minors released back into prostitution. The police are reluctant to release records about prostitution and are complicit when madams present false affirmations that they are relatives of minor girls to get them released from juvenile remand homes. The girls are recruited from impoverished families in the countryside who are paid for giving their daughters in false marriages.

  15. Concepts and implementations of natural language query systems

    Dominick, Wayne D. (Editor); Liu, I-Hsiung

    1984-01-01

    The currently developed user language interfaces of information systems are generally intended for serious users. These interfaces commonly ignore potentially the largest user group, i.e., casual users. This project discusses the concepts and implementations of a natural query language system which satisfy the nature and information needs of casual users by allowing them to communicate with the system in the form of their native (natural) language. In addition, a framework for the development of such an interface is also introduced for the MADAM (Multics Approach to Data Access and Management) system at the University of Southwestern Louisiana.

    Full Text Available An important factor for customer satisfaction is the quality of service. In the context of small businesses, such as small clothing shops, this importance is not always taken into account. The clothing sector is connected to the changes in social relations, is rich in symbolic content, allowing the observation of expressive aspects of material culture, as well as the use of treatment pronouns mainly 'you' and 'madam'. In this sense, the aim of this study was to identify the consumers opinion in relation to the treatment pronoun used by employees in female clothing stores. Data were computed and processed using SPSS software. Techniques of descriptive statistics (frequency distribution and cross tabulations, nonparametric tests (chi-square and multivariate techniques such as cluster analysis and discriminant analysis were used. It was observed that, especially for the group of women aged between 30 and 40 years the use of the pronoun 'madam' can lead to dissatisfaction and even purchase abandonment. Also, clothing can be seen as means of status and age, conveying meanings and allowing visual identification of the class and age of the wearer. Moreover, the paper contributes in order to instruct managers and training teams.

  5. Locked-in: the syndrome as depicted in literature.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Haan, Joost

    2013-01-01

    Protagonists who are locked-in can be found throughout fiction, probably because being locked-in serves as a strong philosophical metaphor for human existence. In this chapter, three protagonists who are locked-in due to physical/medical reasons will be described. The fictitious stories of Noirtier from The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas and that of Madame Raquin from Thérèse Raquin by Émile Zola are followed by the real-life story of Jean-Dominique Bauby's The Diving Bell and the Butterfly. Dumas' Noirtier is considered the first description of the locked-in syndrome in literature, and Madame Raquin appears to be locked-in also, but her description leaves many questions. Bauby's autopathography is chosen from many several similar discourses as it contains cross-references to Noirtier, Dumas' prototype of the syndrome, but also because it is of high literary value. The similarities and remarkable differences between these three case reports of this existentialistically important state of being will be highlighted, with an emphasis on the focus of their narratives. © 2013 Elsevier B.V.

    2010-12-01

    Full Text Available Il y a quarante ans, Margaret Lowe a découvert entre les lignes de Madame Bovary une mise en scène cachée du mythe d’Arachné tel qu’on le lit dans les Métamorphoses d’Ovide. Cependant, bien avant elle, Marcel Proust est tombé sur ce même fil d’araignée et il l’a utilisé pour mettre en scène sa propre version du mythe. Continuant la filature flaubertienne, Proust tisse la toile voluptueuse qui lui permet de détrôner Sainte-Beuve, le dieu de la critique littéraire du dix-neuvième siècle.Forty years ago, Margaret Lowe found in Madame Bovary a hidden “mise en scene” of the myth of Arachne as it is told in Ovid’s Metamorphosis. A long time before Lowe, already Marcel Proust had found the same silk of a spider and he used it in order to perform his own version of the myth. Continuing Flaubert’s weaving, Proust produces the voluptuous tissue, which he presents in a competition against Sainte-Beuve, the god of the nineteenth century’s literary critique, whom Proust wants to dethrone.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Kazuhiro Matsuzawa

    2010-09-01

    Full Text Available « Excusez-moi de n’être pas venue plus tôt ». C’est ainsi qu’après seize ans d’absence Madame Arnoux justifie sa visite imprévue à l’avant-dernier chapitre de L’Éducation sentimentale. On essaie de montrer génétiquement que Flaubert a imprimé au dernier entretien une ambiguïtéprofonde, irréductible au thème de l’échec amoureux. La formule initiale de la parole de Madame Arnoux dans le brouillon était « Je suis venue pour vous rendre 15 mille francs ». Rappelons qu’au cours de la deuxième partie du roman, le couple Arnoux a emprunté cette somme d’argent au jeune homme devenu riche grâce à l’héritage de son oncle. À cette parole est ensuite substituée la formule de remerciement (« Je suis venue vous remercier d’un ancien service », qui sera encore remplacée par celle de l’excuse « Excusez-nous » qui implique la présence de son mari, avant d’aboutir à la formule définitive. Le petit portefeuille brodé que Madame Arnoux dépose sur la cheminée en entrant se révèle alors une formation de compromis qui évoque le problème d’argent de manière oblique en mêlant le souci financier aux sentiments. D’ailleurs Flaubert a supprimé toute interrogation de Frédéric sur le motif de Madame Arnoux. D’où vient l’oubli de Frédéric à l’égard du problème d’argent qui lui fait interpréter ces excuses et ce petit portefeuille comme un aveu d’amour et un cadeau sentimental ? Le dernier entretien se transforme ainsi en un dialogue de sourds, drame du beau malentendu. L’écriture flaubertienne se construit pas à pas entre l’histoire d’amour et l’histoire d’argent qui s’y mêlent inextricablement. La confrontation du texte avec son avant-texte permet d’en saisir les effets de différence.“Excuse my tardiness”. With these words spoken sixteen years later Madame Arnoux justifies her unexpected visit in the penultimate chapter of the Éducation sentimentale

    Full Text Available Madame Bovary est le roman des dialogues ratés : la défiance de Flaubert envers la parole s'exprime notamment dans le célèbre passage du « chaudron fêlé ». Cet article explore cinq variétés de discours inefficaces, qui renvoient tout au long de l'intrigue à cette mésestime du langage. Il montre également en quoi ces discours, par l'aliénation sociale qu'ils font entrevoir, annoncent chez Flaubert certains thèmes structuralistes et situationnistes.Madame Bovary is the novel of failed dialogs: Flaubert’s mistrust of the spoken word is manifest in particular in the famous passage about the “cracked caldron”. This article explores the five varieties of ineffective speeches that reflect throughout the plot the low esteem in which language is held. It also shows how these speeches, by hinting at the alienation from society, herald certain structuralist and situationist themes in Flaubert.

    Full Text Available Come sostengono neuroscienziati e cognitivisti, attualmente le narrazioni finzionali svolgono un ruolo essenziale nell'aiutare gli individui a elaborare schemi predittivi circa la realtà; inoltre, la fruizione immersiva nelle narrazioni attuali costituisce una palestra in cui i lettori indossano empaticamente le emozioni dei personaggi. Questo accade perché oggi il dinamismo del contesto storico-culturale della globalizzazione ha reso necessaria una maggiore abilità nel mind reading e una profonda competenza nelle metarappresentazioni. Al contrario, nel secolo diciannovesimo le narrazioni producevano nei lettori cattive identificazioni perché il contesto storico-culturale non era per così dire all'altezza delle finzioni narrative. Lo dimostra il caso della ricezione normanna di Madame Bovary. As neuroscience and cognitive psychology assert, nowadays fictional narrative holds an essential role helping individuals elaborating predictive schemes of reality; furthemore, immersive fruition of fiction constitutes a mental training in which readers wear characters’ emotions through empathy. This happens because the dynamic historical and cultural context of globalization requires an always more sophisticated ability in mind reading and a strong competence on meta-representations. On the contrary, during 19th Century narrations produced in readers incomplete identifications, due to a context still historically and culturally backward for narrative fiction, as exemplarily demonstrated by Madame Bovary’s Norman reception.

    In order to evaluate the neurobiological mechanism causing the psychogenic effects of methylenedioxy-derivatives of amphetamine, the carbon-11 labeled analogues of 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA), 2 and 2,N-dimethyl-4,5-methylenedioxyamphetamine (MADAM-6) 4 were prepared for application in in-vivo PET studies by methylation of 3,4-methylenedioxyamphetamine (MDA) 1 and 2-methyl-4,5-methylenedioxyamphetamine 3 with [ 11 C]CH 3 I. The radiochemical yield was determined in dependence on time, temperature and amount of precursor. The best conditions for a fast labeling reaction with carbon-11 on a preparative scale were found to be a reaction time of 10 min using 1 mg of the corresponding dimethyl-precursors 1 or 3, thus obtaining radiochemical yields of 60% (based on produced [ 11 C]CH 3 I). Biodistribution studies were performed in rats, a high brain to blood ratio of 7.5 was observed for [ 11 C]MDMA in contrast to a ratio of 3.7 for [ 11 C]MADAM-6. (author)

    Full Text Available Among the many portraits of women executed by Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres, there are some that are characterized by the presence of a mirror, large and enigmatic, placed immediately behind the figure: the Portrait of Madame de Senonnes, built in Rome between 1814 and 1816; the Portrait of Viscountess d'Haussonville, 1845, and finally the Portrait of Madame Moitessier, which began in 1844, but then abandoned and then resumed and completed in 1856. Defined by Emilio Radius «reflections of reflections», these portraits bring us not only the effigy and clothing extraordinary women depicted, countesses and ladies upper middle class, but also indirectly to the ideal of beauty that inspired uncorrupted artistic research the author. In a subtle play of references, they appear to us as a celebration of painting ''absolute'', which replaces the real, even before that faithful images of the characters represented. In this sense, the analysis of an apparently secondary like the mirror has always been conceived in Western painting as a symbol or a means to multiply the space, but also suggest prospects disturbing and mysterious, can lead us through a typical.

    Full Text Available Cet article évoque Madame de Genlis, connue pour ses fortes positions antiphilosophiques et ses implications dans un siècle en pleine ébullition intellectuelle. La préoccupation fonda-mentale des Lumières est la quête hic et nunc du bonheur terrestre de l'homme. L'une des clés pour ouvrir la porte de la félicité humaine se nomme éducation. La présente étude analyse comment Madame la gouverneur des princes s'empare du sujet éducatif, l'expérimente au-près des enfants d'Orléans et conçoit une oeuvre pédagogique originale, Adèle et Théodore. L'article discute la contribution de cet ouvrage épistolaire à la réflexion didactique éclairée et révèle comment la volonté de trop bien éduquer consume la nature humaine et altère la relation éducative nouée entre maître et élève.

    Full Text Available Les traductions des œuvres de Flaubert sont nombreuses. Cet abondant flux de versions comporte une multiplicité de solutions aux « problèmes » que les textes flaubertiens peuvent poser au médiateur linguistique. Ainsi, l’adaptation de leur esthétique particulière et du ton général de l’écriture ne repose pas toujours sur les mêmes stratégies formelles, qui varient suivant les traits du système littéraire récepteur de l’œuvre traduite. Pourtant, la traduction en galicien de Madame Bovary est imprégnée non seulement des caractéristiques propres à cette langue, mais encore des dispositions inhérentes à un champ littéraire encore peu consolidé.Flaubert’s works have been translated into an important number of languages all around the world. These versions present different solutions to the “problems” of Flaubert’s style. In fact, translated books content many aesthetic and formal modifications that are intimately related to the strategies actives into the literary system that receives the resultant text. However, there is a kind of double gaze in the translator’s work that hides the simultaneous development of other aspects that are not literary features. The Galician translation of Madame Bovary shows how stylistic choices are determined by extra-literary politics into a cultural system that is already not completely consolidated.Son muchas las traducciones existentes de las obras de Flaubert. Esta multitud de versiones conlleva la existencia de múltiples soluciones a los “problemas” que los textos de origen presentan al traductor. De hecho, la adaptación de la particular estética de los mismos y del tono general de su escritura no sigue un patrón único, al variar en función de las características inherentes al sistema literario receptor de la obra traducida. Es más, el respeto al principio de literalidad o las libertades del traductor, disimulan aspectos más allá de lo estrictamente literario

  17. Powerful women leaders rise in Asia despite gender inequality.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Over the years, Asia has produced some of the worlds most formidable women leaders, including Indira Ghandi, Madame Mao, Benazir Bhutto, and Corazon Aquino. The list continues with South Asia's leaders, prime ministers, opposition leaders, and vice-presidents, however, such an impressive list does not reflect true equality nor enlightened gender politics. According to Sonny Lo, sociology professor at Hong Kong University, no Asian political system observes true gender equality. It is noted that these Asian leaders rose into prominence after the death or imprisonment of their fathers or husbands. Nevertheless, the elections of Anson Chan and life-long dissident Annette Lu, signal the emergence of a new model for women leaders in Asia. Still, Lo emphasizes that this new trend is merely a reflection of civil service equal opportunity rules. Lo adds that even Taiwan President Chen Sui-Bian's all-women cabinet does not reflect the nation's sentiment, but a wish to project an image.

  18. Gustave Flaubert, Charles Dickens, and Isaac Pulvermacher's "magic band".

    Waits, Robert K

    2013-01-01

    Around 1850, Isaac L. Pulvermacher (1815-1884) joined the ranks of so-called "galvanists" who had, for nearly a century, been touting the shocks and sparks of electricity as a miracle cure for all ills, including neurological complaints such as palsy and hemiplegia. The famed authors, Gustave Flaubert (1821-1880), in France, and Charles Dickens (1812-1870), in England, although contemporaries, apparently never met or corresponded. But during their lives, they both became aware of Pulvermacher and his patented Hydro-Electric Chains, claimed to impart vigor and cure nearly every complaint. Pulvermacher's chains made a cameo appearance in Madame Bovary (1857), Flaubert's controversial (and most successful) novel. Among Dickens's last letters (1870) was an order for I. L. Pulvermacher and Company's "magic band." Since the Victorian age, electrical and magnetic cures, for better or worse, continue to be products of both the medical profession and quackery. © 2013 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

    Full Text Available This research was aimed to compare the postharvest
    performance of the disease caused by the fungus Botrytis cinerea Pers., as well as the Petal Blackening in roses grown in greenhouses cover with plastic of different transmittance to the ultraviolet light. Furthermore, the effect of a climatic screen over the two problems was evaluated. The trial was
    done in the "Centro de Investigaciones y Asesorías Agroindustriales" located in Chía, Cundinamarca, under greenhouses with the same features as the ones used in commercial rose cultivation, with the varieties "Eterna" and "Madame Delbard" and its clones 13 and 15. The effect of the plastic over the disease made a clear difference, showing a lower development of the diseas e in the greenhouse covered with photoselective plastic, as compared with the commercially used plastic. A lower effect of this cover was
    found related to the Petal Blackening, where the results were rather similar between the two plastic types. The climatic screen did not show difference over any of the two problems, under these conditions. The effect of the varieties was not very clear related to the disease, but it in fact was in relation
    to the Petal Blackening, in which the variety "Madame
    Delbard" showed a better performance than its clones 13 and 15. No effect was shown in the interactions between the factors.

    Thank you, Steelie, for that very kind and touching citation. Madam President and delegates of the 2017 Goldschmidt, I stand before you today both humbled and honored to receive the 2017F.W. Clarke Award from the Geochemical Society. It is quite intimidating to see the distinguished list of past recipients of this award. The accomplished careers of these individuals attest to the prestige of this great honor, and I consider myself fortunate to be listed among these individuals. Although I was elated by the news that I will receive this award, I also recognize that there are many other early career scientists that are equally deserving of such accolades. I consider it an honor to be part of such a strong community of early career geochemists, and I look forward to seeing the scientific accomplishments that will be achieved by our generation in the coming decades.

    We describe the data processing pipeline of the Planck Low Frequency Instrument (LFI) data processing centre (DPC) to create and characterize full-sky maps based on the first 15.5 months of operations at 30, 44 and 70 GHz. In particular, we discuss the various steps involved in reducing the data, starting from telemetry packets through to the production of cleaned, calibrated timelines and calibrated frequency maps. Data are continuously calibrated using the modulation induced on the mean temperature of the cosmic microwave background radiation by the proper motion of the spacecraft. Sky signals other than the dipole are removed by an iterative procedure based on simultaneous fitting of calibration parameters and sky maps. Noise properties are estimated from time-ordered data after the sky signal has been removed, using a generalized least square map-making algorithm. A destriping code (Madam) is employed to combine radiometric data and pointing information into sky maps, minimizing the variance of correlated...

  4. Displaying lives: the narrative of objects in biographical exhibitions

    2007-03-01

    Full Text Available Biographical exhibitions are a museum practice that asks for critical consideration. Grounding the argument in critical theory, social studies and museum theory, the article explores the narrative function of objects in biographical exhibitions by addressing the social significance of objects in relation to biography and their relevance when presented into an exhibition display. Central is the concept of objects as ‘biographical relics’ that are culturally fetishized in biographical narratives. This raises questions about biographical reliability and the cultural role that such objects plays in exhibition narratives as bearers of reality and as metonymical icons of the biographical subject. The article considers examples of biographical exhibitions of diverse figures such as Gregor Mendel, Madame de Pompadour and Roland Barthes, and the role that personal items, but also portraits and photographs, play in them.

The differential equations, treated by hybrid calculations, were solved continuously by the analog machine; at the same time the digital computer sampled the results at different times. The program system was divided Into two parts. A card index system was developed progressively from the results (even if they were in real time); the results were displayed graphically directly on an oscilloscope screen with a memory as a curve or a series of curves or, by a delayed system using a digital tracer. The graphs obtained were ready to be inserted in a report and contained all the relevant information.

    Full Text Available his paper will attempt to analyze the clothing from the rococo period and underline fashion as an important segment in the reconstruction of a specific style era. Based on conserved portraits from the second half of the 18th century, as well as rare artifacts of clothing from the period found in Croatia, a description of primarily women’s types of clothing, accessories and the terms used to describe them will be given. Influences had, primarily through cultural and trade routes, come from the fashion capital of the period – France, and fashion innovations and the intensity of their changes were under the influence of the personal style first of Madame de Pompadour and afterwards Marie Antoinette. Croatia, which had at the time been part of the Habsburg monarchy and under the Republic of Venice, tended toward French influences in fashion, which represents a considerable move from the prior influence of Italian and German style.

    Jaenecke, H

    1987-01-01

    The atomic energy debate has become the life-and-death question of ouer times. But there is great uncertainty, and confusion is increasing. This book leads the reader back to the origin of the atomic age. It describes the progression from a scientific discovery, nuclear fission, to the dropping of the atom bomb - and from the bomb to the supposed blessing of 'peaceful' utilisation of atomic energy. But the bomb and the reactor pose the same threat. After Chernobyl, we know that the apocalypse can happen even without a war. The book is to be read as a narrative in which human personalities play the major roles: Madame Curie, who discovered radioactivity, Edward Teller, the inventor of the hydrogen bomb, the nameless engineers in the control rooms of nuclear power stations who now hold the fate of all of us in their hands. The Appendix contains an interview with Carl Friedrich von Weizsaecker.

    Full Text Available En este artículo se presentan los elementos centrales del modelo contractualista clásico de legitimación del Estado, expuesto por Thomas Hobbes en el Leviatán. Se cuestiona la interpretación propuesta por Leo Strauss sobre la filosofía política de Hobbes, según la cual, el filósofo inglés sería el fundador del liberalismo. Mediante una interpretación de la teoría de la representación política hobbesiana se intenta destacar su imagen como defensor del absolutismo político. El tipo de liberalismo a partir del cual es posible mostrar que la concepción de Hobbes resulta inaceptable es el liberalismo representado por autores como Benjamin Constant, Madame de Stäel y Alexis de Tocqueville.This article presents the central elements of the classic contractualist model of State legitimacy as displayed by Thomas Hobbes in Leviathan. It aims to question the proposal made by Leo Strauss on Hobbes’ political philosophy according to which Hobbes is the founder of liberalism. Through an interpretation of the Hobbesian theory of political representation, it intends to detach his image as a defender of political absolutism. The type of liberalism from which it is possible to show that Hobbes’ conception is unacceptable, is liberalism represented by authors such as Benjamin Constant, Madame de Stäel and Alexis de Tocqueville.

    Full Text Available The article concentrates on Estonian novels depicting Soviet prison camps in the 1940s and 1950s. The goal is to map themes, motifs and characteristics in such novels, concentrating on various taboos and rules in the prison camp environment. For a long time the Soviet prison camp theme was not publicly discussed in Estonia due to political reasons. Texts dealing with prison camps could appear in print only outside the Soviet Union; the way Estonians saw these historical events and hellish experiences were depicted mostly in exile novels. Most notable are the novels by Arved Viirlaid (b. 1922, e.g., Kes tappis Eerik Hormi? (Who Killed Eerik Horm? (1974, Surnud ei loe (The Dead do not Read (1975, Vaim ja ahelad (Mind and Chains (1961. Estonian prison camp novels can be seen as “the literature of testimony”, to use the term by Leona Toker. Dramatic historical events are written down to record the events and to show the inhumane nature of Soviet society. These records of the dramatic past follow certain patterns and create certain self- and hetero-images. A prison camp is a closed territory within a closed territory; prison camps can be seen as small models of Soviet society. Prison camp novels give a detailed view of the environment of the prison camp, its inhabitants and activities. Two central aspects are labour and food; the life of the prisoner whirls around these. The most important thing is to survive, which often leads to moral decline, e.g., stealing, cheating. However, there are lines Estonians do not cross, e.g., cannibalism or homosexual relationships with superiors. Estonians are always depicted as political prisoners (not common criminals and heterosexuals, while Russians are portrayed mainly as criminals and often also as homosexuals. Another important component of the image of the Estonians is their enterprising spirit and ability to manage even under very difficult conditions. Therefore, several oppositions can be identified, e

    Un modelo fenológico permite predecir  el tiempo en que ocurrirá un evento en el desarrollo de un organismo, y el calor acumulado en este proceso se conoce como tiempo fisiológico o grados-día de crecimiento.  El estudio fue realizado en una finca de producción de flores, ubicada en el municipio de Suesca (Cundinamarca, con el objetivo de evaluar el comportamiento fenológico de las variedades de rosas ‘Madame Delbard’, ‘Charlotte’ y ‘Freedom’, como respuesta a la acumulación de grados-día. Para esto, a los estadios fenológicos denominados ‘arroz’, ‘garbanzo’, ‘mostrando color’ y ‘cosecha’ se les hizo un seguimiento desde el momento de la poda. Para la primera cosecha de la variedad ‘Madame Delbard’, se obtuvo una acumulación total de 1085,3 grados-día y el pico de cosecha se presentó a los 86 d y 904,4 grados-día. La variedad ‘Charlotte’ tuvo sus primeras flores a los 49 d, finalizando la cosecha a los 87 d y con 906,3 grados- día. El pico de cosecha se dio a los 69 d y 718,5 grados-día. En el caso de la variedad ‘Freedom’, se necesitaron 50 d después de poda para cortar las primeras flores, a los 80 d y 779,9 grados-día se acentúo la cosecha, finalizando a los 93 d y 892,9 grados-día. Las curvas de producción obtenidas de las tres variedades presentaron un modelo cuadrático, definido por el modelo de regresión de Poisson, excepto para la curva de la ‘Freedom’, que se comportó como un modelo lineal.

    Full Text Available Mayra Santos-Febres’s 2006 novel, Nuestra señora de la noche , is based on the life of the Puerto Rican madam, Isabel la Negra, a legendary figure in Puerto Rican culture. Using both Mervin Alleyne’s theory of racial discrimination and Aída Hurtado’s theory of racially-based gender discrimination, which shows how the reactions of white and black females are governed by their relation of dependency on or rejection by the white male, this study illustrates how the character Isabel la Negra evolves as a postmodern, feminist character who opposes racism and gender subordination in Puerto Rico through her role as a prostitute. Conversely, the study also illustrates how madness, associated with both white (Cristina Rangel and black (Montse females in the novel, is a powerless rather than feminist strategy, into which women descend due to their mistreatment by patriarchal society. The study illustrates how Fernando Fornarís, the white male protagonist, serves as the narrative axis for the development of women’s polarized reactions to patriarchal domination in the novel.

    A humorous short film made by three secondary school students received an award at a Geneva film festival. Even without millions of dollars or Hollywood stars at your disposal, it is still possible to make a good science fiction film about CERN. That is what three students from the Collège Madame de Staël in Carouge, near Geneva, demonstrated. For their amateur short film on the LHC, they were commended by the jury of the video and multimedia festival for schools organised by the "Media in education" service of the Canton of Geneva’s Public Education Department. The film is a spoof of a television news report on the LHC start-up. In sequences full of humour and imagination, the reporter conducts interviews with a very serious "Professor Sairne", some protons preparing for their voyage and even the neutrons that were rejected by the LHC. "We got the idea of making a film about CERN at the end of the summer," explains Lucinda Päsche, one of the three students. "We did o...

    Radium the first radioisotope invented by Madame Curie was used for cancer therapy for the intracavitory treatment of cervical cancers and as oral implants etc. Radium needles and other geometries were made in standard strengths and Radium therapy enjoyed a heyday during the 1st half of the 20th century. Radium-226 is a long-lived radioactive material with a half-life of 1600 years. The use of radium was abandoned in the world in 1980s with the invention of short lived radioactive materials offering remote after loading systems which minimise radiation protection and waste disposal problems associated with long lived radioactive materials. This paper reports the conditioning procedure of the spent radium sources for long term storage (less than 20 years) and transport to national/ international stores if needed. The dose received by those involved in this exercise is also discussed in terms of radiation protection. The Ra was contained for long term storage according to international radiation safety regulations with a surface dose of less than 2 mSv per hour in a conditioned package having 17.5 GBq activity and can be transported to national/international stores if needed. The highest dose received during the exercise is well within the recommended dose limits for occupational exposures (20 and 500 mSv per year) for whole body and extremities respectively

    This paper honours a paediatrician whose career has been patchwork but distinguished, with many facets. It is a light-hearted look at the printed (infinitely preferable to the electronic) word. Although the obvious response is "read everything I have written", this would only drive down the stores of Prozac. Read the scientific literature of course. The oldie reads to stay one jump ahead on the ward round. Meta-analyses and systematic reviews rely on the judgement of others, so should be regarded with suspicion. Do your own research, and do not rely on the thoughts of other people. Read beyond PubMed. "There is more in Heaven and Earth, Horatio, than is dreamed of in your PubMed" (Shakespeare). Read the giants of the past. Richard Asher has so much to teach. What are the seven sins of medicine, and how many have you committed? Asher is top read of the talk. Learn from the mistakes of the past. Your patient comes first. Read how the medical profession covered up the death of Steve Biko and never compromise with patient safety and your integrity. Finally, remember thou art mortal - read a real book for pleasure. Kindle reading must be like making love to an inflatable doll (not that I have done either).

  10. Joyce After Flaubert: the cuckold as imperfect physician, the writer as physiologist.

    Bénéjam, Valérie

    2008-01-01

    Although Joyce was not as familiar with the practice and theory of medicine as was Gustave Flaubert, this article argues that, through Flaubert's legacy, Joyce's writing was influenced by the French school of medical thought. Several aspects of Flaubert's style and narration-what has been dubbed his "medical realism"-were taken up by Joyce: the artist's impersonal perspective, the precision of descriptions, and the materialist attack against Romanticism, as well as the irony built into the narrative voice through free indirect discourse. While the cuckold in Madame Bovary is an incompetent surgeon serving as foil to the precise description of sentiments offered by the narrator, Joyce's cuckold in Ulysses is an amateur physiologist, both perspicacious and sympathetic to human suffering. Bloom's interest in internal bodily processes opens up new dimensions for a modernist aesthetics as he relates physiology and psychology, in accordance with the theories of Xavier Bichat, Etienne Bonnot de Condillac, and Pierre Jean Georges Cabanis. In keeping with such focus, Joyce's physiological version of stream-of-consciousness stems from Flaubert's clinical description of characters, but he directs matters even further inward.

    Full Text Available Despite the fact that Vicente Aleixandre considered her one of the best young authors of the generation of social poets of the 1950s, María Beneyto's writings have been disregarded by critics. While sharing the social concerns of the other poets of her generation, Beneyto's poetry also reveals the dilemma of the woman author facing a cultural tradition that espouses pre-established models for her conduct and identity patterned mostly in accordance with tenets of Romanticism. Beneyto resorts to those models as projections of herself as she seeks to articulate her own identity as woman and author. The objective of this essay is to explore Beneyto's reflection on her own identity as woman and poet and, through that process, on the nature of poetic language. By adopting the identity of Eve as the embodiment of instinctual and primitive life that culture has suppressed, or by addressing the role of the mother or angel of the hearth, or the identity of Ophelia, George Sand, or Madame Bovary, Beneyto's poetic speaker hopes to make audible their silenced voices and to contest the rigidity that cultural convention imposes on those roles. Beneyto's poetry destabilizes the essentialism of those models and comes to an understanding of female identity and writing as a constant process of redefinition based on the individual woman's exchanges with the surrounding context.

His 'morality fairytales', 'fantasies of good will' imbued with belief in restoration of old-new principles, offer complex reflections on an idealised Americanism of the 1930s which have become the foundation of representations of the American political system. The Capraesque narrative - 'a blend of optimism, humor, patriotism, and, to those who really understand his work, (and darkness, despair, and the need to fight for things you care about...'

    Venkatesh, Meera

    2006-01-01

    Radionuclides made great impact in the history of nuclear sciences both at the end of 19th century with the discoveries of Becquerel and madame Curie and later in 1934, when Frederic Joliet and Irene Curie demonstrated the production of the first artificial radioisotopes, 30 P, by bombardment of 27 Al by alpha particles. The subsequent invention of cyclotron and setting up of nuclear reactor opened the floodgate for production of artificial radionuclides. Currently, majority of radionuclides are made artificially by transforming a stable nuclide into an unstable state and thus far over 2500 radionuclides have been produced artificially. Use of radionuclides in various fields immediately followed their production and last century has witnessed tremendous growth in the applications of radiation and radioisotopes, in diverse fields such as medicine, industry, agriculture, food preservation, water resource management, environmental studies, etc. While radiation and radioisotopes are used both for diagnosis as well as for therapy in the field of medicine, therapeutic applications are among the earliest, which began as an empirical science in the beginning and developed into a well structured modality with time.

  16. Application fuzzy multi-attribute decision analysis method to prioritize project success criteria

    2017-11-01

    Project success is a foundation for project owner to manage and control not only for the current project but also for future potential projects in construction companies. However, identifying the key success criteria for evaluating a particular project in real practice is a challenging task. Normally, it depends on a lot of factors, such as the expectation of the project owner and stakeholders, triple constraints of the project (cost, time, quality), and company's mission, vision, and objectives. Traditional decision-making methods for measuring the project success are usually based on subjective opinions of panel experts, resulting in irrational and inappropriate decisions. Therefore, this paper introduces a multi-attribute decision analysis method (MADAM) for weighting project success criteria by using fuzzy Analytical Hierarchy Process approach. It is found that this method is useful when dealing with imprecise and uncertain human judgments in evaluating project success criteria. Moreover, this research also suggests that although cost, time, and quality are three project success criteria projects, the satisfaction of project owner and acceptance of project stakeholders with the completed project criteria is the most important criteria for project success evaluation in Vietnam.

      Sometimes, a moment can announce the end of an age. The gold market is like that. Within two transaction days, the gold slumped by 13%and saw a 25%tumble from the high point in August 2011. According to the classic investment theory, a 20%-above decline means the shift from“a bull”to“a bear”market.   The super bear market of gold has lasted a dozen years. But the bull-to-bear shift was completed within only 20 minutes. Wall Street’s analysts and ordinary Chinese people had different understandings to the golden age.   Expecting a bear market, Wall Street continuously dumped gold, resulting in a diving of gold price.

    The AMES (Ageing Materials European Strategy) European network started its activity in 1993 with the aim of studying ageing mechanisms and remedial procedures for structural materials used for nuclear reactor components. Operated by JRC-IE, it has been supporting the co-ordination of the project cluster throughout the 4th and 5th EURATOM Framework Programs, carrying out projects on with plant life management implications. Among them we can list the development of non-destructive techniques applied to thermal ageing and neutron embrittlement monitoring (AMES-NDT and GRETE), improved surveillance for VVER 440 reactors (COBRA), dosimetry (AMESDOSIMETRY, MADAM and REDOS), chemical composition effects on neutron embrittlement (PISA) and advanced fracture mechanics for integrity assessment (FRAME). Main frame of the network in the 5th Framework Programme is the ATHENA project, which is aimed at summarizing the obtained achievements and edit guidelines on important issues like the Master Curve, Effect of chemical composition on embrittlement rate in RPV steels, Re-embrittlement models validation after VVER-440 annealing and open issues in embrittlement of VVER type reactors. In the 6th EURATOM Framework Programme started in 2003 the network will be part of a broader initiative on PLIM including in a more integrated way NESC, ENIQ, NET and AMALIA networks. This paper shows an overview of the concluded projects, achievements of the running ones and open issues tackled in the 6th EURATOM FWP and a summary of the plans for a new broader network on NPP Plant Life management (SAFELIFE).

One possible factor is the amount of concurrent cognitive training received during the training program. In this pilot study, we recruited 24 elderly adults with or without concurrent cognitive stimulations to attend a memory-training program. Findings suggested that elderly people without concurrent cognitive stimulation could benefit from a memory-training program in the form of improved initiation and memory functioning. Self-rated quality of life measure also showed improvements alongside the cognitive benefits. Elderly people with regular concurrent cognitive stimulation, on the other hand, seemed to plateau in their level of performance and did not show any significant change. Our preliminary findings suggested nonlinear concurrent cognitive stimulation in the elderly.Keywords: memory training, cognitive training, dementia, Chinese, elderly 

  20. Solanaceae III: henbane, hags and Hawley Harvey Crippen.

    Hyoscyamus, the henbane, is one of the drugs of the ancients. Initially used both as a poison and narcotic, it was widely adopted by witches, wizards and soothsayers as a component of their hallucinatory and flying ointments. It was also used by notorious poisoners such as Madame Voisin in France. Eventually, in the nineteenth century its active principle was isolated by Ladenburg and called l-hyoscine. It proved to be a tropane alkaloid very similar to atropine. These two alkaloids proved to be very important in the study of the parasympathetic component of the autonomic nervous system, and together with physostigmine, allowed the major neurotransmitter acetylcholine to be isolated and its mechanisms of action to be characterised. The Crippen murder case in 1910 gave hyoscine further fame, indeed, notoriety. The unassuming homeopathic doctor murdered his wife with the alkaloid and then decamped for Canada with his mistress Ethel Le Neve. The case became a worldwide sensation for several reasons: the arrest of the fugitive couple by wireless telegraphy (Marconigram) and the extensive chemical and histological evidence presented by Willcox and Spilsbury. Some authorities claim that this was the beginning of the science of forensic medicine in Britain. Hyoscine is now hardly ever used in modern therapeutics but its history from antiquity to the witches and on to Dr Crippen is both bizarre and fascinating.

    Over the last six years through a Department of Energy Radiochemistry Education Award Program (REAP) we have developed a completely webbased course in nuclear and radiochemistry given at the University of Texas at Austin. This course has had nuclear and radiation engineering and chemistry graduate students. While the course also has an extensive laboratory component only the lectures are web based. The lectures begin with a historical introduction of radiochemistry followed by two movies on Madame Curie. This is followed by the usual lectures on radioactivity, fundamental properties, radioactive decay, decay modes, and nuclear reactions. As section on radioactive waste management and nuclear fuel cycle is also presented. Lectures in neutron activation analysis, geo- and cosmochemistry, and plutonium chemistry have also been developed. All lectures are in power point with many animations and a significant number of solved problems. All students are required to make a short oral presentation on some aspect of nuclear and radiochemistry in their research or a chosen topic. (author)

  2. Representations of female protagonism in Howards End, by E. M. Forster

    2017-07-01

    Full Text Available E. M. Forster’s feminine characters are very important in his novels as they represent social, political and philosophical aspects of the 20th century society, and through them the author describes his observations about the main events that define the society. In Howards Ends, the Schlegel sisters Margaret, Helen and aunt Juley represent the feminine emancipation and the cultural aspects of bourgeoisie. The sisters’ pathways cross with Ruth Wilcox’s one, Henry’s wife, who assists them in time of hardness when their rent expires deciding to give her house (Howards End to them. Besides them, other important characters as Dolly, Madam Avery, Evie and Jacky Bast are responsible for developing certain activities and representations in the novel. The analysis of their personalities and characteristics provide an objective observation of what E. M. Forster really desires to describe in the 1910s. Then, by uniting these groups of women, we can delimit their specificities and attributions, observing each singularity they have. This approach of the feminine family nucleus provides a sociocultural analysis of the three social classes represented in the novel: economic elite (Wilcox, bourgeoisie (Schlegel and proletariat (Bast at the beginning of the 20th Century.

    Medical humanities is the interdisciplinary field of humanities (literature, philosophy, ethics, history, and religion), social science (anthropology, cultural studies, psychology, and sociology), and the arts (literature, theater, film, and visual arts), and their application to medical education and practice. In this chapter, the concept of 'hysteria' is put into a medical humanities perspective. We review the concept of hysteria concisely. Two novels and one autobiographical story are used as material in order to study how 'hysteria' is represented in literary work. Madame Bovary (Gustave Flaubert), Hedda Gabler (Henrik Ibsen), and A Story in an Almost Classical Mode (Harold Brodkey) were searched for elements that are characteristic of hysteria. Excessive emotion, dramatics, attention-seeking behavior, physical symptoms of unknown and unidentifiable organic causes, self-centered behavior, and flirtatious behavior are the six elements used to operationalize hysteria. It was found that these elements were present in both a quantitative and qualitative manner in the literary works examined. Acknowledging some limitations and suggesting some research areas and clinical implications, we conclude that literary works are useful in analyzing concepts in medicine. Also, more generally, using literary works seems to have a positive impact on readers, healthcare providers, and researchers in the healthcare domain. Studying novels and related literary work contributes to the body of knowledge of medical humanities.

    Full Text Available The late-Victorian two-tier public (circulating libraries, e.g., Mudie’s Select Library and private (secret literary societies, e.g. The Lutetian Society publishing field was at the centre of profound social transformations tied to literacy. The hierarchical structure of the field reveals the degree to which speech has traditionally been controlled in Britain, in alignment with the country’s rigid class structure. This reality marks a sharp contrast with the generally held view that Great Britain has historically been a model of free speech and democratic values. The article explains that the bourgeoning moral majority preoccupied with protecting the moral integrity of newly literate working class readers and women readers of all classes wished to quell the perceived scourge of pornography, believed to be promoted by dissolute foreigners and British aristocrats. In order to avoid prosecution, editors and translators needed to consider not only patterns of reader expectations, but also the discursive constraints that aligned with Victorian values. An example of an editor who overestimated the degree of freedom of expression was Henry Vizetelly, who attempted to provide working class and female readers with translations of Zola’s and Flaubert’s works. While Madame Bovary was not banned by the courts, many of Zola’s novels were.

  5. Fiction as a Medium of Social Communication in 19th Century France

    Full Text Available This article will present the extent to which literature could be viewed as means of social communication – i.e. informing and influencing society – in 19thcentury France, by analysing the appearance of three authors at different points:  the beginning, the middle and the end of the century. The first is the case of Balzac at the beginning of the 19th Century who becomes the most successful novelist of the century in France and who, in his prolific expression and rich vocabulary, portrays society from various angles in a huge opus of almost 100 works, 93 of them making his Comédie humaine. The second is the case of Gustave Flaubert whose famous novel Madame Bovary, which depicts a female character in a realist but also in a psychologically conscious manner, around the mid-19th century reaches French courts together with Les Fleurs du Mal by Charles Baudelaire and is exposed as being socially judged for its alleged immorality. The last is the political affair of Dreyfus and its defender Emile Zola, the father of naturalism. This case confirms the establishment of more intense relations between writer and politics and builds a solid way for a more conscious and everyday political engagement in the literary world from the end of the 19th century onwards. These three are the most important cases which illustrate how fiction functioned in relation to society, state and readership in 19th century France.

    2017-01-01

    Full Text Available Thomas Hardy (1840-1928 is one of the great English novelists of the late Victorian era. Far from the Madding Crowd, The Return of the Native, The Mayor of Casterbridge, Tess of the d’Urbervilles and Jude the Obscure are among his most famous novels. If he was not directly influenced by Gustave Flaubert’s aesthetics, Hardy was very much inspired by the heroine of Madame Bovary. Indeed, quite a few of Hardy’s female characters, whether in his novels or in his short stories, suffer with varying degrees from ‘bovarysme’, the disease of imagination and affectivity which is one of Emma Bovary’s central features. This paper aims to shed light on the posterity of Flaubert’s character through Eustacia Vye, the heroine of The Return of the Native, to show to what extent she represents not a pale imitation but an original variation on an essential model of Western literature.

La mise en relation de son étude : « Sur le milieu intérieur chez Flaubert », écrite en 1921, avec des textes du Journal de 1923 et de 1937, les rapprochements avec Gogol, Thomas Hardy, Tolstoï, Baudelaire, Henry James qui traversent les écrits de Du Bos, permettent de suivre ce que celui-ci décrit comme « l’expérience spirituelle » d’une matérialité comprise dans la conquête de la triple exigence du Beau, du Vivant et du Vrai. Du Bos décèle la force de l’œuvre de Flaubert dans la « disproportion » du style, et dans la puissance d’absorption qui fait la densité de cette prose, et qui désigne un extraordinaire travail de conversion. L’obscure expérience spirituelle ainsi poursuivie est celle d’un absolu de l’art, expérience paradoxale d’un « mystique qui ne croit à rien » (comme se désignait Flaubert lui-même, que le critique lie à une interrogation sur sa propre conversion.Charles Du Bos devoted an unflagging attention to Flaubert’s work (except for Bouvard et Pécuchet, which, apparently, according to him did not exist, to Madame Bovary and in particular L’Éducation sentimentale. The connection between his essay “Sur le milieu intérieur chez Flaubert”, written in 1921, and extracts from his Journal, from 1923 to 1937, the comparisons with Gogol, Thomas Hardy, Tolstoy, Baudelaire, and Henry James that run through the writings of Du Bos, allow us to follow what he terms “the spiritual experience” of a materiality encompassed in the conquest of the triple demand of the Beautiful, the Living, the Truth. Du Bos detects the power of Flaubert’s work in the “disproportion” of his style, and the power of absorption that forms the density of his prose, showing an

  9. THE SPECIFICITY OF THE FICTIONAL SPACE IN THE NOVELS BY CRÉBILLON-FILS

    Natalia T. Pakhsarian

    2017-03-01

    Full Text Available The interest of contemporary literary theory and literary history in the problem of fictional space and in the space in the 18 th century novels in particular reveals both achievements and gaps in this field. The latest studies have shed light on the intimization and feminization of the fictional space in rococo novels and have defined the spatial units in such novels by Crébillon-fils as L’Écumoire ou Tanza ï et Néadarné, Le Sopha, and Les Égarements du cœur et de l’esprit. However, the inner-novel spatial relationships have been generally neglected. Juxtaposition of the topography of such novels as L’Astrée by Honoré d’Urfé, La Princesse de Clèves by Madame de La Fayette, and the novels by Crébillon-fils demonstrates that rhetorical theatricality of the baroque and classicist space had been replaced in these works by de-theatralization and topographical abstraction of rococo novels. Purely verbal, playful voyeurism of the novels by Crébillonfils does not match with topographical precision of pose and gesture as described in the frivolous erotic writings of the period (as, for example in “Thérèse-philosophe”. Transformation of rhetorical spatial topoi of the baroque and classicist periods occurs in the works of Crébillon-fils, as it does in the works of other authors of rocaille novels, through naturalizing and psychologizing the novel’s generic features.

  10. Radioisotope programme in India: past, present and future

    One of the major discoveries of the 20th century is the discovery of artificial radioactivity. This distinctive discovery in human history transformed atoms of one element to another. Until then, chemical reactions used to be concerned only with changes occurring outside the nucleus. The field of nuclear science came into existence with discovery of X-rays by Wilhelm Roentgen in 1895, radioactivity emitted by Uranium salt by Henri Becquerel in 1896 and pioneering work carried out by Madame Curie and Pierre Curie. India's atomic energy programme was envisaged, founded and developed by the great visionary Dr. Homi Jehangir Bhabha. Since then Department of Atomic Energy (DAE) of Government of India has been engaged in developing technologies for use of radiation in all possible fields for the benefit of society. The most common sources of radiation are radioisotopes. Radioisotopes are produced by nuclear reactors either by utilizing available excess neutrons for activation of stable elements or by separating useful fission products from the spent fuel. In India, the production of radioisotopes started with the commissioning of APSARA reactor in 1956. Initially, APSARA was operated at low power, and radioisotopes could be produced only on a small scale. All these operations had to be called out with remote handling or in the safe glove boxes keeping in view the radiation levels associated with the samples. In due course, the reactor reached full power and remotely operated processing equipment required for handling the radioisotopes were set up. Isotopes such as Iodine-131, Phosphorous-32, Gold-198 and Sodium-24 were produced and extracted in purified form in small quantities. These were given to KEM Hospital and Bombay Hospital at Mumbai, Vallabhbhai Patel Chest Institute and Safdarjung Hospital in Delhi, mainly for exploratory experiments

    Full Text Available Several Neandertals derive from the karstic caves of the Meuse river tributaries of Belgium, including Engis 2, Scladina 4A-4 and Spy 1. These may form a group that is distinct in maxillary first molar occlusal outlines compared to La Quina 5 from Southwest France. Alternatively, chronological differences may separate individuals given that Scladina 4A-4 from MIS 5 is older than the others from MIS 3. Neolithic samples (n = 42 from Belgium (Maurenne Caverne de la Cave, Hastière Caverne M, Hastière Trou Garçon, Sclaigneaux and Bois Madame dated to 4.6–3.9 kyr provide a context for the Neandertals. Dental casts were prepared from dental impressions of the original maxillary molars. Crown and occlusal areas as well as mesiodistal lengths were measured by calibrated Motic 3.0 microscope cameras. Occlusal outlines of the casts were captured through photostereomicroscopy and non-landmark smooth tracing methods. Occlusal outlines were processed using elliptical Fourier analysis within SHAPE v1.3 which reduced amplitudes of the harmonics into principal components (PC axes. The first two PC axes group the Neandertals, although Scladina 4A-4 falls nearly outside the convex hull for the Neolithic sample. Neandertals are imperfectly separated from the Neolithic sample on PC3 and PC4, and completely distinct on PC5 and PC6. Scladina 4A-4 differs from the other Neandertals on most PC axes. Chronology may best explain the separation of Scladina 4A-4 from the more recent fossils, and particularly Spy 1 and La Quina 5 which are the most similar in maxillary first molar occlusal outline shape.

    Full Text Available The traveling exhibition entitled "The Steins Collect" (2011-12 again drew attention – and on this occasion in a manner perhaps more vivid than any exhibition to date – to the importance of the systematically canon-shaping work that took place in two tiny Parisian ateliers (one in the Rue de Fleurus, the other in the Rue de Madame in terms of the new painterly movements that emerged at the beginning of the 20th century. Leo, Gertrude, and Michael, three siblings from the Stein family, a family of Jewish origin from San Francisco, along with Michael's wife Sarah, not only built within the space of a few years the most important contemporary art collection in Paris, but through their lively salons came to be the most influential shapers and propagators of universal modernism, making their influence felt to this day on assessments of avant-garde art. In the course of preparations for the exhibition and the publication of the accompanying catalogue, both of which provide a comprehensive survey of the Steins' activity, light was cast on the family's Hungarian connections as well. Consequently, one painting by the Hungarian Vilmos Pelrott-Csaba was included at the American venues (San Francisco and New York of the exhibition, and a presentation on the family's ties to Hungary was held at the scholarly conference organized in connection with the exhibition. Despite the fact that several essays have been published on this subject, the written sources have not been collected – neither those dealing with the large number of Hungarians present at the Steins' Saturday evening gatherings, nor those covering the Hungarian pupils at the Académie Matisse, which was closely aligned with the Steins. This essay is a revised version of the presentation held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, supplemented with additional source-material.

    Elixirs were formerly very used drugs or drinks. They are alcoholized and sugared, often offered as liquors, pleasant to drink, and contain drugs or not. Many are uncommon now, but Garrus elixir has passed through the centuries. Digestive stimulative, tonic, flavour of potions, aperitive and liquor, it is obtained by maceration of aloes, saffron, myrrh, clove, cinnamon and nutmeg in alcohol before distillation, then addition of vanilla, maiden-hair, orangeflower water and sugar. It seems to have been discovered at the end of the 17th century or the beginning of 18th century by Joseph Garrus, medicine doctor, living in Paris. When he died, in 1722, the elixir was already well known. During the Regency, it was administered to Duchess of Berry, who died nevertheless, and to some important members of the royal Court. During all the 18th century, it was considered as a panacea with many useful properties, inscribed in some pharmacopoeias and disposable in the drugstores. However, Garrus was acused of having simply improved the formula of the "élixir de propriété" of Paracelsius, also called tincture of aloes, myrrh and saffron. Taking in account the great number of formulas containing these same drugs and plants, it is difficult today to elucidate their origins and to discover who was imitated by another. The elixir of Doctor Garrus is also known in literature since its name is used in Madame Bovary and Tartarin sur les Alpes. At the beginning of our 21st century, some of us consider it as one of the best aperitive liquors.

  14. All I Believed is True: Dickens under the Influence

    2010-04-01

    Full Text Available Dickens’s experiments with mesmerism belonged to a period in which the scientific understanding of the phenomena by experimental investigators began to diffuse into popular forms. Even though explanation and knowledge gradually clustered on the side of professional and elite science, and pure performance became more characteristic of popular expositions and demonstrations of mesmerism, explanation and performance remained closely and intricately intertwined.  It would be tempting to contend that Dickens asserted and enoyed a comic self-distancing from the often frankly absurd theatrical mechanics of mesmerism. But, this article argues, Dickens was at times at least partly under, as well as beyond reach of the influence. There were two conjoined issues of power involved in mesmerism. The first was the power exercised over particular subjects in mesmeric relations. The other is a more general effort to establish and maintain power over the mesmeric phenomenon itself. Spiritual-religious and scientific-materialist explanations offered very different understandings, but they both constituted an effort to stabilise and regularise a set of phenomena that otherwise threatened to radiate unpredictably in all directions. This involves a complex play between explanation and performance. Both forms of explanation attempted to stabilise and simplify relations that the various ways in which mesmerism was performed and enacted tended in fact to multiply and complicate. This article reads Dickens's own involvement in this dynamic, principally through his mesmerism of Madame Augusta de la Rue, both exercising power through mesmerism, and attempting to secure power over it.

    All functions of the human brain are consequences of altered activity of specific neural pathways and neurotransmitter systems. Although the knowledge of "system level" connectivity in the brain is increasing rapidly, we lack "molecular level" information on brain networks and connectivity patterns. We introduce novel voxel-based positron emission tomography (PET) methods for studying internal neurotransmitter network structure and intercorrelations of different neurotransmitter systems in the human brain. We chose serotonin transporter and μ-opioid receptor for this analysis because of their functional interaction at the cellular level and similar regional distribution in the brain. Twenty-one healthy subjects underwent two consecutive PET scans using [(11)C]MADAM, a serotonin transporter tracer, and [(11)C]carfentanil, a μ-opioid receptor tracer. First, voxel-by-voxel "intracorrelations" (hub and seed analyses) were used to study the internal structure of opioid and serotonin systems. Second, voxel-level opioid-serotonin intercorrelations (between neurotransmitters) were computed. Regional μ-opioid receptor binding potentials were uniformly correlated throughout the brain. However, our analyses revealed nonuniformity in the serotonin transporter intracorrelations and identified a highly connected local network (midbrain-striatum-thalamus-amygdala). Regionally specific intercorrelations between the opioid and serotonin tracers were found in anteromedial thalamus, amygdala, anterior cingulate cortex, dorsolateral prefrontal cortex, and left parietal cortex, i.e., in areas relevant for several neuropsychiatric disorders, especially affective disorders. This methodology enables in vivo mapping of connectivity patterns within and between neurotransmitter systems. Quantification of functional neurotransmitter balances may be a useful approach in etiological studies of neuropsychiatric disorders and also in drug development as a biomarker-based rationale for targeted

A estrutura hierárquica do campo revela o grau com o qual o discurso era tradicionalmente controlado na Grã-Bretanha, alinhado com a rígida estrutura de classes do país. Esta realidade marca um nítido contraste com a visão geralmente aceita de que a Grã-Bretanha representa historicamente um modelo de livre expressão e de valores democráticos. O presente artigo explica que a maioria de moral burguesa, preocupada em proteger a integridade moral dos novos leitores alfabetizados da classe trabalhadora e das mulheres leitoras de todas as classes desejava dominar o flagelo da pornografia, com a crença de ser promovida por estrangeiros libertinos e aristocratas britânicos. Com o intuito de evitar perseguição, editores e tradutores precisavam considerar não somente padrões de expectativas do leitor, mas também as restrições discursivas alinhadas com os valores vitorianos. Um exemplo de editor que superestimou o grau de liberdade de expressão foi Henry Vizetelly, que tentou abastecer as classes trabalhadoras e as mulheres leitoras com traduções de trabalhos de Zola e Flaubert. Madame Bovary não foi banido pelas autoridades, ao passo que muitos romances de Zola o foram.

    Chien-Shiung Wu, the first female president of APS, is a well-known figure in China, a figure who serves as an inspiration for youths, especially young women, to study science and particularly physics. In this presentation, a historical perspective will be used to show how such an icon was formed. Born in 1912, the year of the Republic Revolution, Wu was in the first generation of physicists in China and her college mentor was a student of Marie Curie. When Wu came to the U.S. for graduate studies in the 1930s, it was a ``golden age'' for nuclear physics, and the invention of the cyclotron by E. O. Lawrence put UC Berkeley at the frontier. Wu was trained there, with Lawrence as her advisor, and later became an expert in Beta-decay. In 1956, Wu conceived and initiated the experiment of Cobalt-60, which, together with other two experiments, eventually proved the asymmetry of parity in weak-interactions, a hypothesis proposed by T. D. Lee and C. N. Yang. The importance of the experiment gained Wu an enormous reputation which spread even to China, when this was a period of hostility in Sino-American relations, and near total isolation due to the Cold-War. Wu was the daughter of a revolutionary, and an activist in college in patriotic student movements, and she combined this background with her scientific career as the way of ``Saving China with Science,'' a common belief reflecting the Zeitgeist of her time. Although she spent most of her life in the U.S., Wu never wavered in her love for or loyalty to her motherland. Her patriotism, as well as her scientific achievement, made Wu a legend in China, being called ``the Chinese Madam Curie.'' Even during the Cultural Revolution, a novel supposedly taking Wu as the original model was very popular in underground circles, widely spread by hand-written-copies. From 1979-1988, the CUSPEA program enrolled hundreds of China's best graduate students into physics departments in American universities. Although Wu herself was not

This study aimed to evaluate the effectiveness of the Active Mind cognitive-training program in improving the cognitive function and quality of life (QoL for local community-dwelling Chinese older adults. A total of 200 subjects were recruited from 20 different district elderly community centers (DECCs. Centers were randomly assigned into either the intervention group or control group. The intervention group underwent eight 1-hour sessions of cognitive training, while the control group were included in the usual group activities provided by the DECCs. Standardized neuropsychological tests (the Chinese version of Mattis Dementia Rating Scale [CDRS] and the Cantonese version of the Mini-Mental State Examination and the QoL questionnaire SF12 were used to assess participants' cognitive function and QoL before and after the trial. A total of 176 subjects completed the study. The intervention group showed greater improvement in the cognitive function measured by total CDRS score (treatment: 12.24 ± 11.57 vs control: 4.37 ± 7.99; P < 0.001 and QoL measured by total SF12 score (treatment: 7.82 ± 13.19 vs control: 3.18 ± 11.61; P = 0.014. Subjects with lower education level were associated with better cognitive response to the cognitive-training program. The current findings indicated that the Active

    The speech of Madam Peng Peiyun, state counselor and minister of the State Family Planning Commission in China, before the International Conference on Population and Development in Cairo in 1994, emphasized 6 basic points about fertility decline. 1) Population as an issue is about development. The only solution is to work toward sustained development of productivity while promoting social and economic development in environmentally protected ways. 2) Governments should provide "acceptable, obtainable, and affordable" quality family planning services. Governments should help couples and individuals freely and responsibly decide on childbearing without coercion. 3) There is no one recommended model for reducing rapid population growth and enhancing development. Countries have different cultures, levels of economic development, population conditions, and historical traditions. 4) Women's status should be improved through expansion of opportunities for education, involvement in politics and economic development, legal protection of women's rights and interests, and "realization of gender equality." Women need more information, education, and counseling on reproductive health and family planning. Males need to take more responsibility for family planning. 5) International cooperation and government responsibility are required for stabilization of population growth and attainment of sustainable development. Developing countries need improved economic conditions, increased investment in population and development programs, and transfers of technology from developed countries. The principles of mutual respect and mutual benefit according to the spirit of the UN Charter should prevail. UN organizational support should function according to the principles of universality and neutrality. 6) China's goal is to achieve sustained economic growth and development, to meet the material and cultural needs of the Chinese people, and to improve the quality of Chinese life.

En 1924 apenas hacía un año que se acababan de celebrar en París los primeros 25 años del descubrimiento del radium por los esposos Curie; y la misma Madame Curie, solemne y vestida de negro desde la muerte trágica de su marido, había presidido las ceremonias de inauguración de la Fundación Curie, como la rama clínica y de radioterapia de su connotado Instituto de Radium. Transcurriendo un año, en 1925, se celebraría el trigésimo aniversario del descubrimiento de los Rayos X por Wilhelm Conrad Roentgen. Tanto el radium como los Rayos X venían ya aplicándose por dos o más décadas al tratamiento del cáncer. Los estudios experimentales sobre la influencia de la diferenciación celular en el efecto de la radioterapia, hechos en Lyon por Claudius Regaud, histólogo destacado, habían llamado la atención de Madame Curie y del eminente bacteriólogo y médico Emile Roux quienes lo habían puesto, al finalizar la primera Guerra Mundial, a dirigir los trabajos en el Laboratorio de Radiofisiología del Instituto Pasteur y a sentar las bases científicas de la Fundación...

Peyresq is a medieval Provençal village situated 100km from Nice at an altitude of 1528m. The village was founded in the early 13th century. At the beginning of the 17th century there were around 50 houses and by 1851 the village counted 208 inhabitants distributed among 53 families. Like many other villages of Haute Provence, it was almost completely deserted after the Second World War. During the 1950s the village was progressively entirely rebuilt in its original spirit and style by students of Belgian universities, mainly the Université Libre de Bruxelles, under the guidance of Mady and Toine Smets. The aim was to create a 'Foyer d'Humanisme', an international humanistic center for cultural, artistic, and scientific pursuits. The workshops were financed by the Fondation Peyresq, Foyer d'Humanisme, the Fondation Nicolas Claude Fabri de Peyresq, and OLAM (Association pour la Recherche Fondamentale, Brussels). We would like to thank all these institutions for their help and financial support. We extend our warm appreciation to Madame Mady Smets without whom none of this work could have come to light. We would like to thank all the participants for the many lively discussions that we have enjoyed and for their effort in preparing written contributions. We would also like to thank the editorial staff of Classical and Quantum Gravity, especially Tom Spicer, Joseph Tennant and Eirini Messaritaki, for their support and efficiency in preparing this volume. Finally, we thank Edgar Gunzig and Bei-Lok Hu as the main driving forces behind the organization of these workshops.

  2. Impact of chemistry on production and utilization of radioisotopes and related products

    2011-01-01

    The year 2011, declared as the International Year of Chemistry (IYC), commemorates the centenary of the award of Nobel Prize in Chemistry to Madam Curie for her pioneering work on the discovery of Radium and Polonium. Her invaluable discovery and her other research pursuits, as well as other subsequent discoveries in nuclear sciences, including by her daughter and son-in-law - Irene Curie and Frederic Joliot - who in 1935 discovered the phenomenon of artificially induced radioactivity (that later bagged the Nobel Prize), led to several noteworthy applications. The author, as a member of 'Indian radioisotope family' and the DAE programmes on radioisotopes and related radiation technology since August 1972, narrates in this article a series of select chemistry-related milestones that enabled vital developments in the production of isotope products and their applications. Ingenious and often simple chemistry-based solutions instituted by the researchers stand out in the enormous progress achieved over the years and highly significant practical applications rendered a reality. Appropriate examples can be cited from both the Indian scenario and international developments over the past nearly four decades. The long list will include inter alia the following: change of eluent from dilute nitric acid to normal saline to obtain medical-grade pertechnetate from molybdate adsorbed an acidic alumina (ushering in 99m Tc generators for (radio)pharmacy use); premixing a reducing agent like stannous chloride with ligand and freeze-drying the mixture - 'lyophilised kit' - (providing an easy access to 99m Tc radiopharmaceuticals); introduction of an iodine atom in place of an aryl hydrogen as a non-isotopic label in organic compound of interest (birth of radioiodinated compounds for biomedical use); bifunctional chelates designed to link radiometals with biological or pharmaceutical compound (radiolabeled biological analogues for medical use); nucleophilic substitution by fluoride

  4. Molecular Imaging of Transporters with Positron Emission Tomography

    Antoni, Gunnar; Sörensen, Jens; Hall, Håkan

    Positron emission tomography (PET) visualization of brain components in vivo is a rapidly growing field. Molecular imaging with PET is also increasingly used in drug development, especially for the determination of drug receptor interaction for CNS-active drugs. This gives the opportunity to relate clinical efficacy to per cent receptor occupancy of a drug on a certain targeted receptor and to relate drug pharmacokinetics in plasma to interaction with target protein. In the present review we will focus on the study of transporters, such as the monoamine transporters, the P-glycoprotein (Pgp) transporter, the vesicular monoamine transporter type 2, and the glucose transporter using PET radioligands. Neurotransmitter transporters are presynaptically located and in vivo imaging using PET can therefore be used for the determination of the density of afferent neurons. Several promising PET ligands for the noradrenaline transporter (NET) have been labeled and evaluated in vivo including in man, but a really useful PET ligand for NET still remains to be identified. The most promising tracer to date is (S,S)-[18F]FMeNER-D2. The in vivo visualization of the dopamine transporter (DAT) may give clues in the evaluation of conditions related to dopamine, such as Parkinson's disease and drug abuse. The first PET radioligands based on cocaine were not selective, but more recently several selective tracers such as [11C]PE2I have been characterized and shown to be suitable as PET radioligands. Although there are a large number of serotonin transporter inhibitors used today as SSRIs, it was not until very recently, when [11C]McN5652 was synthesized, that this transporter was studied using PET. New candidates as PET radioligands for the SERT have subsequently been developed and [11C]DASB and [11C]MADAM and their analogues are today the most promising ligands. The existing radioligands for Pgp transporters seem to be suitable tools for the study of both peripheral and central drug

He goes out into the garden at Croisset: lime trees, then poplars, then the Seine. An outbuilding on a bank beside some water. He’s finished Part One of Madame Bovary.That Sunday, he would write Louise Colet how at dawn on Friday he’d felt strong, serene, blest in sense and in purpose. The dawn wind does him good. He has a tired fat handsome face, a calm fat handsome face. He loves writing. He loves the world.“Deprived of a party, country, house, personal life, etc., he made writing his only reason to live, and it grips one’s heart how seriously he takes the written world.” These words of Pasolini’s pertain to Gombrowicz. But they might just as well be applied to Flaubert, and one’s heart would not be gripped any less, maybe more. For, if Flaubert had a personal life (as Gombrowicz did after all, but then Pasolini always goes very fast, he pretended not to have one; just as he pretended to have no house, country, freedom, mother named Caroline, orphaned niece also named Caroline, Seine at the end of the path, rolling on before his eyes, sharecroppers’ hillside groves, heaps of disciples and flatterers, well-meaning interns hard at work on his behalf in the corridors of Paris journals and salons: all things Gombrowicz truly did not have, that he, Flaubert, had. Flaubert pretended to have none of all that, that which he had, and for him this pretension became real; he patched together a mask which comprised his skin, and with which he wrote his books; skin and mask had been so well glued that when he wished to retire it, he found nothing more in his hand than an indissoluble mixture of flesh and cardboard under the thick clown moustache. Perhaps it wasn’t truly the clown that he played so much as the monk, and not just to the stands, but in his own eyes and to himself: he was

    The Hellenic Journal of Nuclear Medicine is about to celebrate its 20th anniversary end of 2017. On board of the editorial team since 2003, this journal has influenced me like a good friend over the many past years. From time to time, the journal has published interesting and valuable historical notes. They show that nuclear medicine has a history and that medicine is its basis. They also teach us today, and some of the ancient perspectives and approaches are still valid. The reader of HJNM may be interested in these historical contributions, as they are timeless. Therefore, it was our idea to summarize these in the following pages. Where there is a link to the free article, this is noted. Upon opening all articles, you will find out that these are a book or so of its own. In thanks to the editor-in-chief of the Journal for his continuing support on the historical section.

When I was a boy that is basically all I wanted to be. As a teenager I wrote the usual self-pitying stuff and, at 16 or 17, I attempted a novel in verse, inspired by some story in the Bible, I forgotten which;  but gave up after a couple of pages. Why want to be a writer? I don’t know. In my youth in Guyana I never encountered a writer.

When I was about 11 or 12 I came across V.S. Naipaul’s MIGUEL STREET and was awed by how it made our lives in Guyana so familiar. It was set in Trinidad but the characters lived down my street. A great contrast to the Andromeda story which was exotic and erotic as opposed to the familiar lives of ordinary folk described by Naipaul. Being an academic has also been important to my writing. Firstly, you get a lot of time to read and discuss books with very bright students. Teaching in seminar groups has been amazingly exciting at times, and that intellectual excitement, sensuous in intensity
