The displacement of human beings is always accompanied by the movement of things and practices which travel with them. This is an obvious statement that indeed leads to interesting studies on the material culture involved by people’s mobility. Within this culture are food habits, objects of numerous scholars’ researches often focusing on culinary changes (or resistances) linked to migration paths. Far for being the only issue at stake when studying migrant’s food practices – moreover frequently assumed as originally static prior to migration –, this matter is likely to overshadow other significant dynamics. Such as those which occur when supposedly different food cultures meet, thus leading to the mobilization of belongings by groups who want to take a specific position toward one another. My paper is aimed at analysing this encounter. The assumption is that it shapes a space which corresponds to a tertium quid, that is a dimension where not only the boundaries of food cultures fade, proving of an original indeterminacy and interchangeability of practices, but also where individuals constantly change their reciprocal position depending on the perspective of the gaze upon them. To show these dynamics, I will present the ethnographic data stemmed from my doctoral research about the culinary practices of a group of Moroccan migrant women living in Milan hinterland. I will support my presentation with visual materials collected during an eighteen month fieldwork which included observations and interviews inside homes as well as in public events such as an Arab cooking class.

Pasqualini’s syndrome: hypoandrogenism with spermatogenesis Pasqualini and Bur published the first case of eunuchoidism with preserved spermatogenesis in 1950 in Revista de la Asociación Médica Argentina. The hypoandrogenism with spermatogenesis syndrome included: (a) eunuchoidism, (b) testis with normal spermatogenesis and full volume, with mature spermatozoids in a high proportion of seminiferous tubes and undifferentiated and immature Leydig cells (c) full functional compensation through the administration of chorionic gonadotropin hormone, while hCG is administered (d) total urinary gonadotrophins within normal limits (e) this definition supposes the normal activity of the pituitary and the absence of congenital malformations in general. A first step in the understanding of the physiopathogeny of Pasqualini syndrome or the so called “fertile eunuch" syndrome was the absence of LH in plasma and urine of patients. The second breakthrough was the functional and genetic studies that validated the hypothesis of a functional deficit of LH in these men: it will then also be described in some women. Different groups including ours demonstrated in these cases a LH with varying degrees of immunological activity but biologically inactive in most of the patients, due to one or more inactivating mutations in the LHB gene. Finally, the full comprehension of Pasqualini syndrome allowed to reverse the hypoandrogenic phenotype and to restore fertility in these patients through the use of chorionic gonadotropin and the modern in-vitro fertility techniques. This conference is an historical review and a tribute to the memory of Rodolfo Q. Pasqualini. [less ▲]

Nowadays, polymer crosslinking is widely used in industry to improve or to impart new properties to existing polymer material. In the pharmaceutical field, polymer crosslinking is of great interest for the elaboration of drug delivery devices, mostly hydrogels. Nevertheless, crosslinking is also very useful in nanovectorization of active principle. Indeed, each day, new drugs are synthesized and available on the market but in too many cases, the high hydrophobicity of some drugs makes them useless because of the absence of an appropriated administration method. The encapsulation of the drug into a nanocarrier, typically in the hydrophobic core of a polymer micelle, allows a significant increase of the drugs concentration in water in addition to the protection of the active principle against degradation. However, polymer micelles suffer of the main drawback to not be stable, leading to a premature release of the drug, when the concentration falls down the critical micellar concentration (CMC), which it is rapidly observed after intravenous injection. In order to get rid of the CMC, crosslinking of the micelle core is the most proposed strategy. Nevertheless, the crosslinking of the micelle core may have a non-negligible effect on the drug loading but mainly on the drug release due to the sequestration of the drug in the network. Over the last years, our lab investigated several strategies for the crosslinking of the micelle core made of amphiphilic and biocompatible block copolymers generally by UV radiation in order to fulfill the increasingly stringent requirements of biomedical applications. These strategies are very helpful to prepare injectable nanosized cross-linked particles loaded with an active particle. For some systems, the effect of the crosslinking rate on the drug loading and the drug release was evaluated using a model drug. As the crosslinking may interfere with the drug release after internalization of the carrier into the cell, a reversible crosslinking of the micelle core was proposed. Typically, the introduction of disulfide bond as inter-chain links allowed to delay the drug release by diffusion whereas into the cell, the reduction of the disulfide bridges into corresponding thiol led to the fast disassemble of the micelle and the specific release of the drug into cytoplasm.

In this paper we investigate the relationship between boards of directors’ attributes and conditional accounting conservatism in the French context. Using a pooled regression model to evaluate this relationship for the period 2009-2012, our empirical results can be summarized as follows. Firstly, greater board activity encourages more conservative reporting in financial statements. Secondly, greater board size diminishes conditional accounting conservatism. Lastly, there is a positive relationship between gender diversity and conservatism. To ensure robustness we have calculated our results using alternative measures of accounting conservatism, namely time series and accrual-based measures in addition to asymmetric timeliness of earnings. These findings suggest that boards of directors’ attributes are an important factor in determining the financial reporting quality of French firms. [less ▲]
