Concerned by the exploitation of narrative and fiction for commercial or strategic purposes, many writers and observers wonder what power literature still has today, when the logic of capitalism took over its tools and seems always one step ahead of its critical potentialities. To use Albert Hirschman’s terminology, if the possibilities of voice seem exhausted, can the same be said of the exit strategy, in a networked world precisely fortified by the constant injunction to freedom and autonomy? Moving the issue to the field of the novel, our contribution focuses on some contemporary characters’ wish to withdraw (geeks, secluded artists, autonomous activists, hermits of the virtual age, etc.), compared to emblematic literary figures of exit in the XIXth century (des Esseintes, Bartleby, Oblomov, Emma Bovary), so as to measure the changes that affected the very space of possibilities of exit, and their consequences for forms of resistance in literature.

Natural T regulatory cells (Treg) are challenging to expand ex vivo, and this has severely hindered in vivo evaluation of their therapeutic potential. 5-Azacytidine (5-azaC) and Rapamycin (RAPA) are immunosuppressive drugs that promote selectively the expansion of CD4+CD25highFoxp3+ regulatory T cells.: We investigated whether 5-azaC and RAPA could be used together to promote the ex vivo expansion of Tregs purified from adult human peripheral blood.We found that 5-azaC helped maintain FOXP3 expression during the expansion process probably by promoting the conversion of T conventional (Tconv) in Treg, instead Rapa induces selectively apoptosis in Tconv cells and expansion in Treg. Addition of 5-azaC to RAPA treated cultures improved gene expression of FOXP3, CD25, STAT5 and TGF-B resulted in enhanced Treg expansion and suppressive activity. Also Rapa and 5-AzaC combination sustain Bcl-2 protein expression in Treg conferring resistance to apoptosis process. 5-azaC may have utility in ex vivo expansion of human Tregs, not as a single agent, but in combination with RAPA. These data may considerably accelerate the development of immunotherapeutic approaches for the treatment of autoimmune disease or posttransplant alloreactions by the adoptive transfer of nTreg cells [less ▲]

Development of photochemistry in macroscopic batch reaction vessels is hampered due to inherent limitations: light penetration remains superficial, resulting in inhomogeneous irradiation and hence to side-reactions or product degradation due to overexposure. The recent implementation of photochemical processes in microreactors under continuous-flow conditions appeared to be much more powerful than its batch analogue in terms of irradiation efficiency and light penetration. Furthermore, the fine control of residence time ensures an accurate control of the irradiation time, avoiding side-reactions and degradation. The photooxidation of (L)-methionine with singlet oxygen using Rose Bengal as a sensitizer was successfully implemented in a microreactor setup and led to total and selective conversion into methionine sulfoxide, an important building block for the organic synthesis of peptides or functionalized amino acid. The reaction was performed in 20 min while the same reaction in batch took 2h. [less ▲]

This presentation focuse son multiple-choice items without any control or correction for guessing. Most often these items are recoded as binary outcomes (TRUE-FALSE) and logistic IRT models are calibrated using these recoded data. The main purpose of this study is to highlight the limits of this approach by (a) proposing a simulation model to allow for guessing at various levels of ability, and (b) comparing the dichotomous approach to the use of nominal response model. Preliminary simulations indicate that none of the models are very accurate to estimate latent abilities accurately, though the nominal response model has fewer bias then the dichotomous models.

The batch-to-flow translation of a carbene-based strategy for the diastereoselective preparation of the active pharmaceutical ingredient threo-methylphenidate hydrochloride is presented. The continuous-flow system implies the generation of an explosive organic azide, its consumption in a diazo transfer reaction, an intermediate purification step followed by a Rh(II)-catalyzed carbene C-H insertion reaction that produces threo-enriched N-Boc-methylphenidate. Boc-deprotection is carried out off-line and provides methylphenidate hydrochloride in 19% isolated yield (3 steps fully telescoped) or 38% isolated yield (sequential). [less ▲]

As guest of honor at the 2012 International Comics Festival in Angoulême, Art Spiegelman did not only have a retrospective exhibition devoted to his work, but was also invited to act as the curator of the CIBDI museum’s archive, producing his own ‘private’ museum, as suggested by the exhibition title Le Musée privée d’Art Spiegelman. Similarly, for Daniel Clowes’s retrospective exhibit in Columbus, the Wexner Center of the Arts hosted Eye of the Cartoonist: Daniel Clowes’s Selections from Comics History, based on Clowes’s curatorial choices from the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library and Museum. In each case, the cartoonist literally frames the history of comics and exhibits his personal canon of comics. As Spiegelman put it: “I have been allowed to highjack the Centre of Bande dessinée Museum to replace what is primarily the Francophone patrimony of comics with my own perverse and private map of what comics are.” This quote clearly embodies the dual facet of such exhibitions – collective and singular, shared and idiosyncratic – foregrounding the anchorage of individual graphic novelists within traditions of comics. Articulated around personal canons, these two exhibitions offer fresh perspectives to think about canonization in the comics world. Albeit focused on two 'canonized' graphic novelists, this case study nuances the auteurism of comics scholarship: not only are these exhibitions the result of collaborative work, they also recast the author in the role of curator. The key aspect of these exhibitions lies in a canonizing act of selection that circulates in varied material forms showcasing the authors’ influences. Mapping out how Clowes and Spiegelman frame their entanglement with the past of comics within the contexts of institutions that store its archive, I will examine the specificities of these exhibitions in relation to a body and style of historiography I call ‘authors’ histories of the comics.’ [less ▲]

Thanks to their fascinating physical properties such as high surface area, multidimensional electron transport pathways and good mechanical strength, three dimensionally (3D) interconnected carbon porous frameworks have emerged as attractive materials for various electrochemical energy storage/conversion devices, including Li-ion batteries (LIBs), Li−S batteries, supercapacitors and fuel cells. In this context, a hierarchically structured macro- and mesoporous N-doped carbon with dispersed Fe2O3 nanoparticles (NDC@Fe2O3) is prepared by thermal treatment of a novel composite composed by PMMA particles decorated by graphene oxide (GO), PPy and iron salts. The NDC@Fe2O3 composite exhibited high surface area with a hierarchical pores structure. The combination of Fe2O3 nanoparticles with porous carbon to form hybrid anode has been an efficient way to maintain the electronic integrity of the whole electrode since the carbon acts as a buffer layer to accommodate the volume variation and to provide multidimensional electron transport pathways during the charge/discharge process.
