AIMS: The contribution of left ventricular (LV) untwisting to LV suction and early-diastolic filling was previously demonstrated, but this was not yet tested in patients with aortic stenosis (AS). We sought to assess the relationship between LV untwisting and LV filling pressures in patients with severe AS and normal left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) using speckle tracking echocardiography. METHODS AND RESULTS: Sixty-one consecutive patients (66 +/- 9 years) with severe AS, preserved LVEF (63 +/- 6%), and 40 normal subjects (47 +/- 12 years) were prospectively enrolled. A comprehensive echocardiographic examination was performed in all. LV rotation and twisting were assessed using speckle tracking echocardiography. Peak apical back rotation rate, peak LV untwisting rate, and time intervals from QRS onset (ECG) to each of them were measured. Brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) levels were determined in 30 patients. Patients with AS were older than normal subjects (P < 0.001). LV mass, LA volume, LV filling pressures as well as peak apical back rotation rate and time to peak apical back rotation rate were increased in patients (P < 0.05 for all). In patients with AS, both time to peak LV untwisting rate and time to peak apical back rotation rate were significantly related to E/E' ratio and to BNP levels (P < 0.04 for all). CONCLUSION: In patients with severe AS and preserved LVEF, there is a significant relationship between LV untwisting and LV filling pressures, suggesting a role for impaired LV untwisting in the pathophysiology of diastolic dysfunction in this setting.

This essay offers a close reading of Mona Minim and the Smell of the Sun, a tale for children often thought to be unique in the corpus of Janet Frame in that its implied reading public compelled the author to keep her distance from her usual preoccupation with the great negative themes of twentieth-century consciousness. Yet Frame’s declaration in an interview that this was her favourite among her own published books should alert us to the possibility that thematic continuities subterraneously connect it to the rest of the work. In particular, the exploration of animal life encouraged by the genre can be seen to be paradigmatic of her interest in alternative ontologies and to encode the concern with creativity which is a touchstone of her entire output. Typically, too, the figure of the artist – in this case, of the story-teller – is invested with a redemptive value for the beleaguered individual, and cannot be separated from a metafictional mode of representation which is possibly unexpected in what purports to be a simple fairy tale.

Some scholarly works on legal mobilization have highlighted the diffusion of litigious policies to address social problems in Europe, considering that a rights’ revolution was underway; others have identified sources of resistance to the diffusion of the mobilization of the courts as a mechanism for promotion of rights in Europe. European national agencies for equality, created in the 2000s to address discrimination issues, use litigation to produce social change, both at national and supranational levels. Their strategies, if not new, may tend to redefine legal mobilization against unlawful treatment in the workplace in Europe. In this paper, I analyze how the Belgian and the Swedish equality agencies select the cases they bring to court. How and according to which criteria do they choose, among the complaints they receive, the ones which are relevant for litigation? Although litigation policy at the organizational level has been studied in scholarly works, only a few scholars have examined how European networks influence the internal decision-making. How does Equinet, the European network of equality agencies, promote common frames of interpreting and addressing discrimination in the workplace among European countries? Referring to recent works on social structure and individual actor agency, this contribution aims to highlight organizations’ constraints and resources within different legal regimes, current anti-discrimination policies and legal culture. More broadly, this contribution aims to call into question the processes of transnationalisation and policy transfer from one country to another within the European Union. [less ▲]

The Story of Isis and Ra is a text famous in the world of Egyptology, since its publication by Pleyte and Rossi in the Catalogue des papyrus de Turin at the end of the nineteenth century. Although it has been translated many times, this text has however never received a full philological treatment and several problems remain hitherto unsolved. In my paper I will first present P. Turin 1993, its text and the parallel sources. I well then contextualise the text within the broader frame of Egyptian magic during the New Kingdom. The second part of my paper will be devoted to an analysis of the document, of its text and of the sources, stressing the contribution of such a study to the general issue of text composition, conservation and transmission in ancient Egypt.
