The European Court of justice has long been aware of economists watching its judgements, particularly in the field of European Competition Law. This article considers first what exactly economists are looking at when they read the case law. Then, the typical content of their observation is analysed. Finally, the analysis turns to how the Court takes into account economist's view point on the case law. [less ▲]

Pure crystalline BaZrO3 powders can be produced by precipitation in highly basic aqueous solution. The influence of several synthesis parameters is studied. At high OH- concentration ([NaOH] = 20 mol/l), it is possible to obtain the well-crystallized stoichiometric perovskite phase at relatively low temperature (similar to 80 degrees C), after a short reaction time (15 min) and without requiring any precaution to avoid the presence of CO2. This synthesis method yields spherical particles, whose size can be controlled by changing the concentration of the Ba + Zr solution. No calcination treatment is necessary since the precipitate is crystalline. Suitable choice of the synthesis parameters ([NaOH] = 20 mol/l, [Ba + Zr] = 1 mol/l, reaction time= 15 min) yields a sub-micron precipitate with excellent densification behaviour. Corrosion tests in BaO-CuO melt show that similar to 98% dense BaZrO3 obtained by sintering at 1650 degrees C for 13 h could be used for crucibles in the synthesis of YBa2Cu3O7 superconducting single crystals.

The construct of emotional intelligence (EI) refers to the individual differences in the perception, processing, regulation, and utilization of emotional information. As these differences have been shown to have a significant impact on important life outcomes (e.g., mental and physical health, work performance and social relationships), this study investigated, using a controlled experimental design, whether it is possible to increase El. Participants of the experimental group received a brief empirically-derived El training (four group training sessions of two hours and a half) while control participants continued to live normally. Results showed a significant increase in emotion identification and emotion management abilities in the training group. Follow-up measures after 6 months revealed that these changes were persistent. No significant change was observed in the control group. These findings suggest that El can be improved and open new treatment avenues. (C) 2009 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved. [less ▲]

BACKGROUND: Parasitic gastroenteritis caused by nematodes is only second to mastitis in terms of health costs to dairy farmers in developed countries. Sustainable control strategies complementing anthelmintics are desired, including selective breeding for enhanced resistance. RESULTS AND CONCLUSION: To quantify and characterize the genetic contribution to variation in resistance to gastro-intestinal parasites, we measured the heritability of faecal egg and larval counts in the Dutch Holstein-Friesian dairy cattle population. The heritability of faecal egg counts ranged from 7 to 21% and was generally higher than for larval counts. We performed a whole genome scan in 12 paternal half-daughter groups for a total of 768 cows, corresponding to the approximately 10% most and least infected daughters within each family (selective genotyping). Two genome-wide significant QTL were identified in an across-family analysis, respectively on chromosomes 9 and 19, coinciding with previous findings in orthologous chromosomal regions in sheep. We identified six more suggestive QTL by within-family analysis. An additional 73 informative SNPs were genotyped on chromosome 19 and the ensuing high density map used in a variance component approach to simultaneously exploit linkage and linkage disequilibrium in an initial inconclusive attempt to refine the QTL map position.

On the 5th of September 1977, Hanns Martin Schleyer, head of the German Confederation of Employer’s Associations and former SS member was kidnapped by the Red Army Fraction. This kidnapping was the point of departure for what is usually referred to as the "German Autumn". Since 1977, this important episode in German contemporary history has become the main subject of many audiovisual treatments that attest to the progressive reduction and transformation of an event into some rare symbolic images. This article intends to reflect on the role played by one of these images: a photograph of the kidnapping scene of Hanns Martin Schleyer. This is a striking picture since no dead body is shown, emphasizing that this episode was a (non)event that the media can only document after the fact. Animated by a « dynamic of visual frustration », this image has activated a vast system of semantic filling and reinvestment in which the news, documentary cinema, video art, and the representations produced by the terrorists have become inextricably entangled.

The aim of this study was to test the accuracy of genotype diagnosis after pre-amplification of DNA extracted from biopsies obtained by microblade cutting of ovine embryos and to evaluate the viability of biopsied embryos after vitrification/warming and transfer to recipients. Sex and PrP genotypes were determined. Sex diagnosis was done by PCR amplification of ZFX/ZFY and SRY sequences after PEP-PCR while PrP genotype determination was performed after specific pre-amplification of specific target including codons 136, 154 and 171. Embryos were collected at Day 7 after oestrus. Blastocysts and expanded blastocysts were biopsied immediately after collection whereas compacted morulae were biopsied after 24 hr of in vitro culture. Eighty-nine biopsied embryos were frozen by vitrification. Fresh and vitrified whole embryos were kept as control. DNA of biopsies was extracted and pre-amplified. Sex diagnosis was efficient for 96.6% of biopsies and PrP genotyping was determined in 95.8% of codons. After embryo transfer, no significant difference was observed in lambing rate between biopsied, vitrified control and fresh embryos (54.5%, 60% and 66.6%, respectively). Embryo survival rate was not different between biopsied and whole vitrified embryos (P = 0.38). At birth, 96.7% of diagnosed sex and 95.4% of predetermined codons were correct. Lamb PrP profiles were in agreement with parental genotype. PEP-PCR coupled with sex diagnosis and nested PCR coupled with PrP genotype predetermination are very accurate techniques to genotype ovine embryo before transfer. These original results allow planning of selection of resistant genotype to scrapie and sex of offspring before transfer of cryopreserved embryo [less ▲]

This article examines On Black Sisters’ Street (2009), the second novel by Nigerian-Belgian writer Chika Unigwe. After briefly outlining the pioneering role played by Unigwe’s “Afro-European” fiction in Belgium, the essay argues that the author’s latest book presents its heroines, four African prostitutes working in Antwerp, as individuals caught between two forces: on the one hand, the social and economic pressures that lead to their subjection and, on the other, their wish to satisfy their own aspirations, which relates to the expression of their subjectivity. The article attempts to demonstrate that Unigwe’s novel explores the tension between these poles in at least four different ways: first of all, by using cultural stereotypes in an original manner; secondly, by developing the themes of renaming, slavery and objectification to point to the characters’ exploitation; thirdly, by hinting at the potential role of storytelling in the restoration of the prostitutes’ identity; and finally, by suggesting that the women’s very quest for subjectivity sometimes inadvertently induces their subjection. The essay concludes that Unigwe’s subtle treatment of these issues emphasises the complexity both of the novel’s protagonists and of their relationship with each other. [less ▲]
