Il manoscritto G 387 (277) della Biblioteca Bertoliana di Vicenza solleva alcune questioni relative alla filologia dei carteggi e alla cosiddetta 'filologia materiale: il codice contiene infatti un epistolario, intitolato «Libri tre delle lettere di M. Sebastiano Erizzo», oltre ad alcuni discorsi dello stesso autore, un erudito antiquario veneziano che negli ultimi anni ha riscosso un significativo interesse da parte di studiosi di diversa provenienza disciplinare. Sebastiano Erizzo è infatti l’artefice di una svariata serie di volumi a stampa: noto soprattutto per il suo trattato sulle medaglie degli antichi, fu un raffinato traduttore dal greco e un appassionato filosofo e si cimentò anche nella novellistica (»Le sei giornate»). Il codice nel quale sono conservate le lettere erizziane induce in particolare a interrogarsi sulla sua genesi: l’architettura sapiente con la quale sono state divise e disposte le missive, le nove mani che si alternano e la fascicolazione disordinata del manoscritto, unite alla volontà di stampa espressa in due lettere permettono di ipotizzare che esso fosse un libro pronto per la pubblicazione. La valutazione di una molteplicità di fattori contestuali dati dal testimone unico, specie in riferimento alla produzione, alla copia ed eventualmente alla fruizione del testo d’autore, ci permette di riproporre la costellazione di snodi critici che s’intrecciano e che ci spingono a discutere nuovamente i parametri dell’edizione critica del testo, strettamente connessi con il genere e lo stile del documento epistolare, ma anche pertinenti ad un uso tutto erizziano di fenomeni quali la paragrafatura, la punteggiatura, la segmentazione 'tipografica' del testo, che sollevano problemi di ordine pratico e teorico di notevole portata.

Ce chapitre s'attache à comprendre ce que ce champ particulier de la philosophie contemporaine fait de la question de la médiation, comment le contexte de développement des techniques de communication et/ou de la communication comme technique inquiète son travail , sur quelles bases, dans ce contexte, est convoquée la notion de médiation et comment, en retour, cette inquiétude peut travailler notre propre champ de recherches. Mon hypothèse est que la notion de médiation survient chez ces philosophes pour déconstruire ou infléchir un rapport trop immédiat, trop direct, entre communication et pouvoir, et ce sur deux plans. Sur un plan conceptuel tout d’abord : il faut pouvoir penser la communication comme n’étant pas un simple exercice de pouvoir ; sur le plan des pratiques et des processus de communication ensuite : il faut rompre le lien direct ou immédiat entre intentions des producteurs, représentations et effets sur les récepteurs, et favoriser les manifestations qui le rompent (pour beaucoup, il s’agit de l’art). La notion de médiation répondrait ainsi à un impératif de nature politique : il faut penser la médiation dans le cadre d’une résistance au pouvoir. [less ▲]

Recently, gas chromatography tandem mass spectrometry (GC–MS/MS) has been added in EuropeanUnion (EU) legislation as an alternative to magnetic sector high resolution mass spectrometry (HRMS) for the analysis of dioxins and dioxin like polychlorinated biphenyls (dl-PCB) in food and feed. In this study the performance of APGC–MS/MS compared to GC–HRMS is investigated and compared with EU legislation. The study includes the legislative parameters, relative intermediate precision standard devia-tion (SRw,rel), trueness, sensitivity, linear range and ion ratio tolerance. In addition, over 200 real samplesof large variety and spanning several orders of magnitude in concentration were analyzed by both techniques and the selectivity was evaluated by comparing chromatograms. The SRw,rel and trueness were evaluated using (in-house) reference samples and fulfill to EU legislation, though the SRw,rel was better with GC–HRMS. The sensitivity was considerably better than of GC–HRMS while the linear range was similar. Ion ratios were mostly within the tolerable range of ±15%. A (temporary unresolved) systematic deviation in ion ratio was observed for several congeners, yet this did not lead to exceeding of the maxi-mum ion ratio limits. The APGC–MS/MS results for the non-dioxin-like-PCBs (ndl-PCBs) were negatively biased, particularly for PCB138 and 153 in contaminated samples. The selectivity of APGC–MS/MS was lower for several matrices. Particularly for contaminated samples, interfering peaks were observed in the APGC chromatograms of the native compounds (dioxins) and labeled internal standards (PCBs). These can lead to biased results and ultimately to false positive samples. It was concluded that the determination of dioxins and PCBs using APGC–MS/MS meets the requirements set by the European Commission. However, due to generally better selectivity and SRw,rel, GC–HRMS is the preferred method for monitoring purposes. [less ▲]

Several lines of evidence indicate that early-life inflammation may predispose to mental illness, including depression, in later-life. We investigated the impact of perinatal exposure to polluted eels on neonatal, postnatal, and adult brain inflammation, and on the resignation behavior of male and female adult offspring mice. The effects of maternal standard diet (laboratory food) were compared to the same diet enriched with low, intermediate, or highly polluted eels. Brain inflammatory markers including cytokines were assessed in offspring mice on the day of birth (i.e., on the postnatal day–PND 1), upon weaning (PND 21) and at adulthood (PND 100). Plasma myeloperoxidase and corticosterone levels were evaluated at PND 100. Immobility behavior of offspring was assessed in adulthood (i.e., at PNDs 95–100), using the tail suspension and forced swimming tests. Chronic brain inflammation was found in male and female offspring mice compared to controls, as assessed at PNDs 1, 21, and 100. The level of myeloperoxidase was found to be significantly higher in both adult males and females vs. control offspring. However, high corticosterone levels were only found in male offspring mice that were perinatally exposed to eels, suggesting a gender-selective dysregulation of the adult hypothalamicpituitaryadrenal (HPA) axis. Gender-specific differences were also detected in adulthood in regard to offspring resignation behavior. Thus, compared to controls, males, but not females, whose mothers were fed eels during pregnancy and lactation exhibited a depressive-like behavior in adult age in both behavioral models of depression. Depressive symptoms were more pronounced in male mice perinatally exposed to either intermediate or highly polluted eels than those exposed to only lowly polluted eels. Our results indicate that early-life inflammatory insult is a plausible causative factor that induce the depressive phenotype exhibited by male adult offspring mice, most likely through a gender-specific HPA axis enhanced activation.

Cold-formed steel elements are being used more frequently on construction sites because of the good strength-to-cost ratio. However, insufficient studies are published examining the properties of these constructions. This paper presents a study of cold formed steel bolted gusset plate connections. A “three springs” mechanical model to calculate joint stiffness is presented. Then the results predicted through the proposed model are validated through comparisons to experimental and finite element results. [less ▲]

Decreased thiamine and reduced activity of thiamine diphosphate (ThDP)-dependent 2-oxoglutarate dehydrogenase (OGDH) cause neurodegeneration. We hypothesized on concerted cell-specific regulation of the thiamine metabolism and ThDP-dependent reactions. We identified a smaller thiamine pool, a lower expression of the mitochondrial ThDP transporter, and a higher expression of OGDH in rat astrocytes versus neuroblastoma N2A. According to the data, the astrocytic OGDH may be up-regulated by an increase in intracellular ThDP, while the neuroblastomal OGDH functions at full ThDP saturation. Indeed, in rat astrocytes and brain cortex, OGDH inhibition by succinyl phosphonate (SP) enlarged the pool of thiamine compounds. Increased ThDP level in response to the OGDH inhibition presumably up-regulated the enzyme to compensate for a decrease in reducing power which occurred in SP-treated astrocytes. Under the same SP treatment of N2A cells, their thiamine pool and reducing power were unchanged, although SP action was evident from accumulation of glutamate. The presented data indicate that functional interplay between OGDH, other proteins of the tricarbocylic acid cycle and proteins of thiamine metabolism is an important determinant of physiology-specific networks and their homeostatic mechanisms.

The replenishment and persistence of marine species is contingent on dispersing larvae locating suitable habitat and surviving to a reproductive stage. Pelagic larvae rely on environmental cues to make behavioural decisions with chemical information being important for habitat selection at settlement. We explored the sensory world of crustaceans and fishes focusing on the impact anthropogenic alterations (ocean acidification, red soil, pesticide) have on conspecific chemical signals used by larvae for habitat selection. Crustacean (Stenopus hispidus) and fish (Chromis viridis) larvae recognized their conspecifics via chemical signals under control conditions. In the presence of acidified water, red soil or pesticide, the ability of larvae to chemically recognize conspecific cues was altered. Our study highlights that recruitment potential on coral reefs may decrease due to anthropogenic stressors. If so, populations of fishes and crustaceans will continue their rapid decline; larval recruitment will not replace and sustain the adult populations on degraded reefs. [less ▲]

La période fin de siècle s’accompagne, dans le champ littéraire français, du développement d’une série de groupuscules plus ou moins organisés et volontiers potaches. Au cœur de ces associations liées de près ou de loin à ce qu’Ernest Raynaud qualifiera de « mêlée symboliste » (1920-1922), le rire fonctionne comme un véritable ciment social, renforçant les liens des membres de la collectivité et redoublant l’exclusion de ceux qui n’en sont pas. Héritiers d’entreprises collectives comme Le Parnassiculet contemporain (1866) et l’Album zutique (composé en 1871 et tenu délibérément à l’écart des circuits de diffusion du livre), les agents engageant les projets des Hydropathes, des Hirsutes, des Jemenfoutistes ou de l’incontournable cabaret du Chat Noir se rassemblent non seulement dans une perspective dérisoire, mais encore se dotent-ils d’un discours qui, plus qu’un simple divertissement, présente cette dérision comme principe régulant l’activité collective. Ce sont, à l’aune des cas susmentionnés, quelques-uns de ces discours du rire collectif fin de siècle que nous explorons ici, en nous penchant sur les mécanismes rhétoriques qui les fondent et sur les grandes logiques (d’opposition à des figures spécifiques ou à des institutions) qui les motivent, en cherchant à mettre en lumière la façon dont cette omniprésence de la dérision est directement provoquée par l’état du champ littéraire de l’époque.

A process has been developed to enable the large scale production of pure TiO2 films deposited on 316L stainless steel in order to get an easy-to-clean surface. This large scale process requires an easy aqueous sol-gel procedure for the synthesis of the TiO2 sol. This synthesis has been simplified to facilitate the extrapolation towards an industrial scale. Results of TEM, photocatalytic properties, film hydrophilicity, and texture obtained with the simplified aqueous sol-gel synthesis (IsoP-TiO2 synthesis) show similar properties to those obtained with the standard aqueous sol-gel synthesis of TiO2 (HAc-TiO2 synthesis) developed previously. Only X-Ray Diffraction patterns showed differences, with the presence of anatase-brookite phases in IsoP-TiO2 synthesis while anatase phase only was observed in HAc-TiO2 synthesis. Both the aqueous sol-gel synthesis of pure TiO2 and the film deposition on steel by roll-coating have been successfully extrapolated to a larger scale. The photocatalytic activity and the hydrophilicity of the film were found to be unchanged when compared to films produced at a laboratory scale, thus validating the production of an efficient easy-to-clean material. Although some problems are still to be solved, this study is a hopeful first step in the development of a large scale process for self-cleaning steel production. [less ▲]

This work provides a unified treatment of arbitrary kinds of microscopic boundary conditions usually considered in the multi-scale computational homogenization method for nonlinear multi-physics problems. An efficient procedure is developed to enforce the multi-point linear constraints arising from the microscopic boundary condition either by the direct constraint elimination or by the Lagrange multiplier elimination methods. The macroscopic tangent operators are computed in an efficient way from a multiple right hand sides linear system whose left hand side matrix is the stiffness matrix of the microscopic linearized system at the converged solution. The number of vectors at the right hand side is equal to the number of the macroscopic kinematic variables used to formulate the microscopic boundary condition. As the resolution of the microscopic linearized system often follows a direct factorization procedure, the computation of the macroscopic tangent operators is then performed using this factorized matrix at a reduced computational time.
