Over the centuries, bio-sourced compounds isolated from plants, insects and microorganisms have been a potent source of drugs for the treatment of human diseases. In this review, we recapitulate the story of one of these compounds, 2-propylpentanoic acid, derived from the Valeriana officinalis flowering plant and its path to validation as a cancer treatment.

The Lower Carboniferous Mobarak Formation records the development of a carbonate platform on the southern Paleo-Tethyan passive margin. This pervasive carbonate factory was deposited following the opening of the Paleo-Tethys Ocean into the Alborz Basin along the northern margin of Gondwana. The depositional facies range from the most proximal to the most distal and include coastal environments, inner ramp peritidal facies, peloidal to crinoidal shoals, storm to fair-weather influenced mid-ramps, proximal to distal shell beds and low energy outer ramps. Storms clearly played a dominant role in the distribution of skeletal and non-skeletal shoals on the carbonate ramp. Sedimentological analyses complemented with foraminiferal biostratigraphy reveal four events which are interpreted to represent the principal factors controlling carbonate platform evolution in the Alborz Basin during the Lower Carboniferous: 1) A transgression linked to global temperature rise in the Early Tournaisian (Middle Hastarain) resulted in the formation of thick-bedded argillaceous limestones. 2) the Hastarian–Ivorian boundary glaciation phase, 3) Upper Ivorian–Lower Viséan? tectonic block faulting. 4) the Viséan- Serpukhovian glaciation phase. The three foraminiferal assemblages encountered in the Tournaisian interval of the Mobarak Formation are restricted to specific periods within the Ivorian. The occurrence of specific foraminiferal taxa in Alborz is tightly governed by transgressions and migration of North Paleo–Tethyan biotic elements as response to the thermal period. We also combined proxies for ambient paleothermometry in addition to the indications for arid conditions and arid conditions and the presence of foraminiferal taxa with a North Paleo-Tethyan affinity in the Lower Carboniferous Mobarak Formation to suggest a paleo-position for the Alborz Basin at lower latitudes than approximately 45  –50  southern paleolatitude reported thus far. Magnetic susceptibility ( in ) was measured and compared with facies from the same sample. There is a clear link between  in and facies, and the average  in values are higher for distal facies than for proximal ones. The  in profile of Lower Carboniferous carbonate sequence reflects stratigraphic variations in response to relative sea level changes and detrital input. In the context of the sequence stratigraphic framework, the average  in values for lowstand and transgressive system tracts deposits are higher than for the highstand system tracts deposits. The clear link between  in and facies points to at least partly preserved primary  in signal, related to detrital inputs. In respect to the hysteresis measurements the in signal is mainly carried by low coercivity ferromagnetic minerals such as magnetite, with a mixture of relatively coarse grains (detrital fraction) and ultra-fine grains (probably formed during diagenesis).

Cultural memory in comics studies mostly seems to revolve around nonfictional graphic novels tackling major historical events. Drawing on recent trends in cultural memory studies, this paper focuses on Jacques Ristorcelli‘s Les Écrans (2014) as an experimental counterpoint where memory is animated by the author’s use of collage. Delving into an ‘archive’ of heterogeneous elements, Les Écrans borrows from old war comics in a way that reflexively constructs a discourse on the past of the medium and its memory. Through the analysis of Ristorcelli’s book, this paper highlights how collage can function in comics as a work of memory that reaches back to appropriative practices common to both readers and fine artists.

Understanding carbon dioxide (CO2) biospheric processes is of great importance because the terrestrial exchange drives the seasonal and interannual variability of CO2 in the atmosphere. Atmospheric inversions based on CO2 concentration measurements alone can only determine net biosphere fluxes, but not differentiate between photosynthesis (uptake) and respiration (production). Carbonyl sulfide (OCS) could provide an important additional constraint: it is also taken up by plants during photosynthesis but not emitted during respiration, and therefore is a potential means to differentiate between these processes. Solar absorption Fourier Transform InfraRed (FTIR) spectrometry allows for the retrievals of the atmospheric concentrations of both CO2 and OCS from measured solar absorption spectra. Here, we investigate co-located and quasi-simultaneous FTIR measurements of OCS and CO2 performed at five selected sites located in the Northern Hemisphere. These measurements are compared to simulations of OCS and CO2 using a chemical transport model (GEOS-Chem). The coupled biospheric fluxes of OCS and CO2 from the simple biosphere model (SiB) are used in the study. The CO2 simulation with SiB fluxes agrees with the measurements well, while the OCS simulation reproduced a weaker drawdown than FTIR measurements at selected sites, and a smaller latitudinal gradient in the Northern Hemisphere during growing season when comparing with HIPPO (HIAPER Pole-to-Pole Observations) data spanning both hemispheres. An offset in the timing of the seasonal cycle minimum between SiB simulation and measurements is also seen. Using OCS as a photosynthesis proxy can help to understand how the biospheric processes are reproduced in models and to further understand the carbon cycle in the real world. [less ▲]

A la fin des années 90’, les autorités en charge de l’Education dans l’actuelle Fédération Wallonie-Bruxelles ont attribué à l’éducation physique la mission de développer trois domaines de compétences (condition physique, habiletés gestuelles, coopération socio-motrice) pour poursuivre en parallèle quatre finalités (santé, sécurité, expression-communication, éducation sportive). Si les textes officiels semblaient encourager le développement d’un cours d’éducation physique où le sport cédait un peu de terrain à l’activité physique au sens large, force est de constater que, dans les faits, les séances sont restées essentiellement construites par rapport à la pratique de disciplines sportives (dont le choix tend par ailleurs à s’élargir et à se diversifier). Depuis quelques années, sous l’impulsion des formateurs d’enseignants, on constate toutefois une modification très progressive des mentalités. De plus en plus d’initiatives sont ainsi mises en place sur le terrain dans la perspective d’amener les élèves à devenir des citoyens responsables … de leur corps tout au long de leur vie. Cette évolution en faveur de la littératie physique s’accompagne par ailleurs de démarches visant à souligner l’ancrage sociétal de la discipline dont l’apport concret doit impérativement être mis en exergue : le cours d’éducation physique qui présente des liens directs avec ce qui se passe en dehors des murs de l’école. Le professeur d’éducation physique est ainsi de plus en plus présenté comme le potentiel coordinateur de la promotion d’un style de vie actif au sein des établissements scolaires. [less ▲]

We present an overview of the current interest in non-collinear magnetism in multiferroic perovskite crystals. We first describe the different microscopic mechanisms giving rise to the non-collinearity of spins in this class of materials. We discuss, in particular, the interplay between non-collinear magnetism and ferroelectric and antiferrodistortive distortions of the perovskite structure, and how this can promote magnetoelectric responses. We then provide a literature survey on non-collinear multiferroic perovskites. We discuss numerous examples of spin cantings driving weak ferromagnetism in transition metal perovskites, and of spin- induced ferroelectricity as observed in the rare-earth based perovskites. These examples are chosen to best illustrate the fundamental role of non-collinear magnetism in the design of multiferroicity. [less ▲]

The challenge for the clinician is to detect early gastric autoimmunity markers to avoid some of its complications such as micronutriments and drug malabsorption. Indeed autoimmune gastritis may be associated with the development of neuroendocrine tumors (NET), gastric adenocarcinomas or even MALT lymphomas. In this lecture we summarize recent diagnostic tools and new therapies taylored for autoimmune gastritis. [less ▲]
