The Fair Trade and co-operative movements have much in common. This chapter aims to examine the convergences and divergences between the two fields, highlighting what they can learn from each other and how practitioners and researchers in the two areas can better collaborate. Fair trade is an innovative approach to economic development that uses a market-driven approach to exploit the growing trend in ethical, or caused-based, consumption (Nicholls & Opal 2005). Fair Trade organizations aim to re-engineer the value chains between poor producers and artisans - typically in developing countries - and their wholesale buyers such that a greater proportion of the overall rents accrue to those who provide the inputs. Put simply, Fair Trade aims to ensure that the poorest actors in a supply chain benefit from more of the overall financial value creation as a development tool. Moreover, Fair Trade reconnects producers and consumers at the point of purchase such that consumption becomes a political – or, at least, life style – choice. This chapter is structured as follows. After this introduction, the second section describes the development of Fair Trade from its historical roots to the current organizational landscape and market organization. Next there is a discussion of several key issues and challenges that have emerged as Fair Trade has become increasingly institutionalized. Then, the fourth section explores the relationship between Fair Trade and the co-operative and mutual movements. Finally, conclusions serve to sum up the chapter. [less ▲]

In this paper we study the Christian symbols, as the cross (), the staurogramm (⳨, and its variant with an appendage ), the chi-rho sign (⳩), and the crux ansata (☥) in Greek literary and documentary papyri. The first part is dedicated to the study of the form and the origin of the Christian symbols, on the ground of both the oldest papyri which bear them and the literary sources about them. In the second part we analyze their disposition in the papyri and in relation to the texts they bear. Finally, in the third part, the data studied before lead to identifying the functions of the Christian symbols in the papyri. [less ▲]

We present an implementation of a multifractal formalism based on the types of histogram of wavelet leaders. This method yields non-concave spectra and is not limited to their increasing part. We show both from the theoretical and from the applied points of view that this approach is more e cient than the wavelet-based multifractal formalisms previously introduced. [less ▲]

Au fil des siècles, le corpus latin des vitae sanctorum et des passiones martyrum s’est enrichi par l’introduction de nouveaux textes, par la réécriture et l’adaptation d’anciens remis au goût du jour, ainsi que par la traduction d’oeuvres issues du monde byzantin. Le phénomène de la réécriture hagiographique est bien connu et a fait l’objet de nombreux travaux. Celui de la traduction dans ce domaine reste en revanche peu exploité, tant il existe d’obstacles à son étude (absence de répertoire, manque d’éditions critiques, difficultés à identifier les traductions et les modèles grecs, etc.). Le présent travail propose une approche originale du phénomène, basée sur l’utilisation de la statistique linguistique. Cette approche consiste à étudier le latin utilisé par les traducteurs hagiographes pour rendre leur modèle grec et les techniques qu’ils ont adoptées pour le traduire en considérant les traductions non pas une à une, mais d’une manière comparative au moyen de l’analyse quantitative, dans le but de caractériser et de classer les traductions sur base de critères linguistiques, d’identifier et de qualifier des pratiques, des traditions localisées, des spécificités d’école ou de traducteur. La pratique de la traduction est examinée à travers un corpus de 35 textes représentatif des différentes phases de l’histoire de la traduction hagiographique latine au Moyen Âge et des différents foyers de traduction en Italie. Les analyses sont menées sur divers paramètres lexicaux et syntaxiques, en comparant d’abord le corpus, pris dans son ensemble, à un corpus de textes non traduits, puis en comparant entre eux les différents sous-corpus de traductions. Le premier type de comparaison (externe) a pour objectif de mettre en évidence les caractéristiques des traductions en général, le second (interne) de dégager les spécificités de chaque groupe de traductions.

G protein-coupled receptors are the most important drug targets for human diseases. An important number of them remain devoid of confirmed ligands. GPR27 is one of these orphan receptors, characterized by a high level of conservation among vertebrates and a predominant expression in the central nervous system. In addition, it has recently been linked to insulin secretion. However, the absence of endogenous or surrogate ligands for GPR27 complicates the examination of its biological function. Our aim was to validate GPR27 signaling pathways and therefore we sought to screen a diversity oriented synthesis library to identify GPR27-specific surrogate agonists. In order to select an optimal screening assay, we investigated GPR27 ligand-independent activity. Both in G protein-mediated pathways and in β-arrestin 2 recruitment, no ligand-independent activity could be measured. However, we observed a recruitment of β-arrestin 2 to a GPR27V2 chimera in the presence of membrane-anchored β-adrenergic receptor kinase 1 (GRK2). Therefore, we optimized a firefly luciferase complementation assay to screen against this chimeric receptor. We identified two compounds (N-[4-(anilinocarbonyl)phenyl]-2,4-dichlorobenzamide (ChemBridge ID5128535) and 2,4-dichloro-N-{4-[(1,3-thiazol-2-ylamino)sulfonyl]phenyl}benzamide (ChemBridge ID5217941)) sharing a N-phenyl-2,4-dichlorobenzamide scaffold, which were selective for GPR27 over its closely related family members GPR85 and GPR173. The specificity of the activity was confirmed with a NanoBiT® β-arrestin 2 assay, imaging of GFP-tagged β-arrestin 2 and PathHunter® β-arrestin 2 Assay. Interestingly, no G protein activation was detected upon activation of GPR27 by these compounds. Our study provides the first selective surrogate agonists for the orphan GPR27. [less ▲]
