The Thomistic Doctrine of the Triune God and Spiritual Life

Emery, Gilles

In: Nova et Vetera (English Edition), 2014, vol. 12, p. 1281-1303

Doing Theology with Thomas Aquinas means entering in possession of some fundamental theological and philosophical positions that lead to acquire not only a set of doctrines but a specific attitude, a mentality, a disposition that shapes both thought and action. This essay deals with four aspects: (1) the practice of Trinitarian theology as a spiritual exercise; (2) prayer and purification of the...

Multilingual communication

Berthele, Raphael

In: Verbal Communication, 2016, p. 429-446

Verbal communication involving more than one language is widespread, both historically and geographically. This chapter provides an overview of multilingual ‘regimes’ of communication, covering different phenomena such as lingua franca communication or receptive multilingualism. The chapter discusses the consequences of multilingual language use as an institutionalized pattern for individual...

Controlling the strength of ferromagnetic order in YBa2Cu3O7/La2/3Ca1/3MnO3 multilayers

Andrés Prada, Roberto de ; Gaina, Roxana ; Biškup, N. ; Varela, M. ; Stahn, J. ; Bernhard, Christian

In: Physical Review B, 2019, vol. 100, no. 11, p. 115129

With dc magnetization and polarized neutron reflectometry we studied the ferromagnetic response of YBa2Cu3O7/La2/3Ca1/3MnO3 (YBCO/LCMO) multilayers that are grown with pulsed laser deposition. We found that whereas for certain growth conditions (denoted as A type) the ferromagnetic moment of the LCMO layer is strongly dependent on the structural details of the YBCO layer on which it is ...

A substantial discount on ski passes : a synthetic control analysis

Wallimann, Hannes

(Working Papers SES ; 507)

The synthetic control method serves as an appropriate and promising approach to do quantitative comparison research. However, the method is rarely used in the context of tourism. We fill this research gap by applying the method to the case of a Swiss mountain destination. Alpine tourist destinations have suffered from a declining demand in the last decade. Fewer tourist visit ski resorts....

The roles of Language mode and dominance in French-German bilinguals’ motion event descriptions

Stocker, Ladina ; Berthele, Raphael

In: Bilingualism: Language and Cognition, 2019, p. 1-13

Juggling with structurally and semantically different language systems leads to constructions that differ from the typical patterns in a language. Typical patterns in the domain of motion are characterized by more verbs encoding path in French; and more verbs encoding the manner of motion in German. An increase of manner verbs in French, for instance, can be ascribed to an influence from German....

Mood effects after deep brain stimulation for Parkinson’s disease: an update

Accolla, Ettore A. ; Pollo, Claudio

In: Frontiers in Neurology, 2019, vol. 10, p. 617

Depression in Parkinson's Disease (PD) is a prevalent and invalidating symptom. Deep brain stimulation (DBS) allows for an improvement of PD motor features, but its effects on mood are difficult to predict. Here, we review the evidence regarding mood effects after DBS of either subthalamic nucleus (STN) or globus pallidus pars interna (GPi). Different influences of multiple factors contribute...

Memories of the "liberation of Kosovo" among Albanian-speaking activists in Switzerland : narrating transnational belonging to the nation

Farquet, Romaine ; Dahinden, Janine (Dir.) ; Duijzings, Ger (Codir.) ; Schwander-Sievers, Stephanie (Codir.) ; Lacroix, Thomas (Codir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2019.

The Albanian-speaking population living in Switzerland mobilised massively on behalf of the national cause in Kosovo in the 1990s. After the end of the conflict, that saw the departure of the Serbian forces from Kosovo (1999), some of the Albanian-speaking activists from Switzerland returned to their homeland. Many others remained in Switzerland, where they largely diminished or terminated their...

Under-detection of endospore-forming Firmicutes in metagenomic data

Filippidou, Sevasti ; Junier, Thomas ; Wunderlin, Tina ; Lo, Chien-Chi ; Li, Po-E ; Chain, Patrick S ; Junier, Pilar

In: Computational and Structural Biotechnology Journal, 2015, vol. 13, p. 299-206

Microbial diversity studies based on metagenomic sequencing have greatly enhanced our knowledge of the microbial world. However, one caveat is the fact that not all microorganisms are equally well detected, questioning the universality of this approach. Firmicutes are known to be a dominant bacterial group. Several Firmicutes species are endospore formers and this property makes...

Overproduction of H2S, generated by CBS, inhibits mitochondrial Complex IV and suppresses oxidative phosphorylation in Down syndrome

Panagaki, Theodora ; Randi, Elisa B. ; Augsburger, Fiona ; Szabo, Csaba

In: Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, 2019, p. 201911895

Down syndrome (DS) is associated with significant perturbances in mitochondrial function. Here we tested the hypothesis that the suppression of mitochondrial electron transport in DS cells is due to high expression of cystathionine-β-synthase (CBS) and subsequent overproduction of the gaseous transmitter hydrogen sulfide (H2S). Fibroblasts from DS individuals showed higher CBS expression...

The tim-3-galectin-9 secretory pathway is involved in the immune escape of human acute myeloid leukemia cells

Gonçalves Silva, Isabel ; Yasinska, Inna M. ; Sakhnevych, Svetlana S. ; Fiedler, Walter ; Wellbrock, Jasmin ; Bardelli, Marco ; Varani, Luca ; Hussain, Rohanah ; Siligardi, Giulio ; Ceccone, Giacomo ; Berger, Steffen M. ; Ushkaryov, Yuri A. ; Gibbs, Bernhard F. ; Fasler-Kan, Elizaveta ; Sumbayev, Vadim V.

In: Ebiomedicine, 2017, vol. 22, p. 44-57

Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is a severe and often fatal systemic malignancy. Malignant cells are capable of escaping host immune surveillance by inactivating cytotoxic lymphoid cells. In this work we discovered a fundamental molecular pathway, which includes ligand-dependent activation of ectopically expressed latrophilin 1 and possibly other G-protein coupled receptors leading to increased...
