The last surviving Thalassochelydia — A new turtle cranium from the Early Cretaceous of the Purbeck Group (Dorset, UK)

Anquetin, Jérémy ; André, Charlotte

In: PaleorXiv

Background. The mostly Berriasian (Early Cretaceous) Purbeck Group of southern England has produced a rich turtle fauna dominated by the freshwater paracryptodires Pleurosternon bullockii and Dorsetochelys typocardium. Each of these species is known by numerous relatively complete shells and by a single cranium. The two other turtles found in the Purbeck Group (Hylaeochelys belli, a species of...

Généalogie de l’‘élève cosmopolite’ et marchandisation de l’‘international’ dans des établissements scolaires privés en Suisse

Rey, Jeanne ; Bolay, Matthieu ; Schubiger, Elisabeth

Ce texte interroge les contextes et modalités du recours à la catégorie de l’‘international’ par des écoles privées en Suisse. À partir d’observations ethnographiques et de référence à des travaux historiographiques, nous dégageons l’hypothèse de trois modalités d’agencement institutionnel de l’‘international‘ dans ces établissements, renvoyant à des modes de...

The environmental cost and the accident externality of driving : evidence from the Swiss franc’s appreciation

Bello, Piera

This study investigates the effects of driving on air quality and road safety by exploiting exogenous variation in traffic flows associated with the Swiss franc’s appreciation. During the Swiss franc’s appreciation, the volume of cars crossing the Swiss-Italian border rose considerably– the higher purchasing power of Swiss francs in the Euro area induced more Italian workers to cross the...

Der rechtliche Rahmen von Kirchenumnutzungen

Pahud de Mortanges, René

In: Schweizerische Kirchenzeitung

Was tun mit Kirchen, die, wie ein Mantel aus alten Zeiten, aufgrund schwindender Gottesdienstbesucher zu gross geworden sind? Noch sind wir in der Schweiz nicht so weit wie in den Niederlanden, wo nurmehr ein Drittel der Bevölkerung Mitglied einer christlichen Gemeinschaft ist und in den letzten Jahrzehnten rund tausend Kirchengebäude abgerissen wurden. Gleichwohl wird sich der zuständige...

FJProf : profiling fork/join applications on the Java virtual machine

Rosales, Eduardo ; Rosà, Andrea ; Binder, Walter

An efficient fork/join application should maximize parallelism while minimizing overheads, and maximize locality while minimizing contention. However, there is no unique optimal implementation that best resolves such tradeoffs and failing in balancing them may lead to fork/join applications suffering from several issues (e.g., suboptimal forking, load imbalance, excessive synchronization),...

Endoplasmic reticulum and lysosomal quality control of four nonsense mutants of iduronate 2-sulfatase linked to Hunter’s syndrome

Marazza, Alessandro ; Galli, Carmela ; Fasana, Elisa ; Sgrignani, Jacopo ; Burda, Patricie ; Enrico M. A. Fassi ; Matthias Baumgartner ; Andrea Cavalli ; Maurizio Molinari

In: DNA and cell biology

Hunter’s syndrome (mucopolysaccharidosis type II) is a rare X-linked lysosomal storage disorder caused by mutations in the iduronate 2-sulfatase (IDS) gene. Motivated by the case of a child affected by this syndrome, we compared the intracellular fate of wild type IDS (IDSWT) and of four nonsense mutations of IDS (IDSL482X, IDSY452X, IDSR443X and IDSW337X) generating progressively shorter ...

Taxes, traffic jam and spillover in the metropolis

Ly, Tidiane

This paper studies local governments' public policies in a metropolitan area plagued by traffic congestion, where both residents and workers consume local public goods. We develop a new spatial sub-metropolitan tax competition model which features a central city surrounded by suburban towns linked by mobile capital and mobile residents who commute to work. We show that Pareto-efficiency is...
