In the wake of Richards Benton’s “Keats and Zen” (published in Philosophy East and West (1966)), this paper sets out to examine Janet Frame’s appropriation of Buddhist philosophy in Snowman, Snowman (1962). The novella’s allusions to a Buddhist-like epistemology, together with its subtle references to Scandinavian myths, however, have so far remained uncovered and are therefore best approached in the light of what has been called “the suppressed intertextuality in post-colonial writing”. The author’s intention in this paper is twofold: On the one hand, the author will suggest that post-colonial writers do not necessarily write against the Western canon and that maintaining the contrary amounts to vindicating the centrality of imperial texts in the contemporary literary scene—an endeavour which is hardly post-colonial. On the other hand, the author will go some way towards shifting eastward the core of Frame’s ontology by suggesting that her poetics is anchored not only in Western thinking, but also, perhaps more importantly so, in Eastern philosophy. The author’s primary impulse, however, in examining the interplay between canonical and peripheral intertextualities, is to illuminate in fundamental fashion the haunting beauty of the writer’s universe and the lyricism of Snowman, Snowman.

Key regulators in tissue-engineering processes such as cell culture and cellular organisation are the cell-cell and cell-matrix interactions. As mathematical models are increasingly applied to investigate biological phenomena in the biomedical field, it is important, for some applications, that these models incorporate an adequate description of cell adhesion. This study describes the development of a continuum model that represents a cell-in-gel culture system used in bone-tissue engineering, namely that of a cell aggregate embedded in a hydrogel. Cell adhesion is modelled through the use of non-local (integral) terms in the partial differential equations. The simulation results demonstrate that the effects of cell-cell and cell-matrix adhesion are particularly important for the survival and growth of the cell population and the production of extracellular matrix by the cells, concurring with experimental observations in the literature.

Il présente également les grandes finalités qu'elles poursuivent et le modèle d'entreprise qu'elles mettent en oeuvre.

The success of the notion of 'control' proposed by Deleuze and later developped by Negri and Hardt tends to obliterate its literary origins, ie. the work of William S. Burroughs. Yet, the American writer's logic of Control is based on the same ambivalent representation of power as a hold, according to which freedom is a mere lever serving to act upon an individual's possible actions. Restoring this Burroughsian filiation of Control emphasizes its counter-fictional dimension: in an outsideless word, practices such as cut-up or simulacrum reinvent our capacity of action. [less ▲]

Yasmin (Schering AG, Berlin, Germany), a new oral contraceptive containing 30 microg ethinylestradiol combined with 3 mg drospirenone, effectively inhibits ovulation, as demonstrated by measurement of plasma hormone levels (follicle stimulating hormone, luteinizing hormone, estradiol and progesterone), and echographic evaluation of follicular ripening. Like other low-dose oral contraceptives, the combination of ethinylestradiol and drospirenone markedly limits cervical function, spinnbarkeit and degree of crystallization, resulting in a hostile environment for sperm penetration. Two large, randomized, multicenter, open-label clinical studies have compared the contraceptive efficacy of ethinylestradiol/drospirenone with that of Marvelon, a well-established contraceptive containing 30 microg ethinylestradiol plus 150 microg desogestrel. Both preparations provided effective contraception and good cycle control. There were no negative effects on hemostatic parameters, lipids and carbohydrate metabolism. However, in both studies, ethinylestradiol/drospirenone had a more favorable effect on body weight than ethinylestradiol/desogestrel, with mean body weight remaining lower in the ethinylestradiol/ drospirenone group, the difference between the two preparations being statistically significant. Pre-existing acne and seborrhea were improved by ethinylestradiol/ drospirenone and blood pressure was essentially unchanged. These studies show that ethinylestradiol/drospirenone provides effective oral contraception, excellent cycle control and good tolerability, with effects on body weight and skin condition that are likely to confer a significant beneficial effect on compliance, especially in women with a tendency to gain weight under oral contraceptives due to water retention.

In the French urban public transport industry, operations are often delegated and periodically put out for tender. Thus, operators’ incentives to reduce costs come from both profit maximization during the current contract and from the perspective of contract renewal. We construct a dynamic incentive regulation model that captures these features and we show that both the level of cost-reducing effort and its repartition during the contracting period depend on the contract type (cost-plus, gross cost or net cost contract). We then estimate a cost frontier model for an eight-year panel of French bus companies (664 company-year observations) to test our predictions. [less ▲]
