Institutional effects on nurses’ working conditions: a multi-group comparison of public and private non-profit and for-profit healthcare employers in Switzerland

Aeschbacher, Remo ; Addor, Véronique

In: Human Resources for Health, 2018, vol. 16, no. 58, p. 1-10

Background: In response to the need for competitive recruitment of nurses resulting from the worldwide nursing shortage, employers need to attract and retain nurses by promoting their competitive strengths in their working conditions (WCS) and by addressing their competitive weaknesses. This study investigated workplace differences between public hospitals (PuHs), private for-profit hospitals...

Causal Pitfalls in the Decomposition of Wage Gaps

Huber , Martin

In: Journal of business & economic statistics, 2015, vol. 33, no. 2, p. 179-191

The decomposition of gender or ethnic wage gaps into explained and unexplained components (often with the aim to assess labor market discrimination) has been a major research agenda in empirical labor economics. This article demonstrates that conventional decompositions, no matter whether linear or nonparametric,areequivalenttoassuminga(probablytoo)simplemodelofmediation(aimed atassessing...

No hay reino como el de Dios y los mártires de Madrid: problemas de identificación y de atribución = No hay reino como el de Dios y los mártires de Madrid: identification and authorship problems

Alviti, Roberta

In: Arte Nuevo : Revista de estudios áureos, 2019, vol. 6, p. 90-109

El artículo se centra en la comedia o hay reino como el de Dios y mártires de Madrid, escrita en colaboración entre Jerónimo de Cáncer y Velasco, Juan de Matos Fragoso y Agustín Moreto. La tarea preliminar es la de distinguir dicha pieza, hacendo hincapié en los testimonio manuscritos e impresos, de otra con la que se ha confundido con frecuencia, con razón del parecido de...

Murillo en el siglo XIX: la Corona poética dedicada a Murillo (1863) y la corona de Montpensier, o el uso político de la devoción = Murillo in the Nineteenth Century: the Corona poética dedicada a Murillo (1863) and the crown of Montpensier, or the political use of piety

Comellas, Mercedes

In: Arte Nuevo : Revista de estudios áureos, 2019, vol. 6, p. 21-56

En 1863 se publica en Sevilla una Corona poética dedicada al insigne pintor sevillano Bartolomé Esteban Murillo, reuniendo poesías celebratorias de las más conocidas plumas andaluzas de la época. La fecha de publicación de la colección permite usarla como punto de referencia para repasar la valoración de Murillo desde su visión romántica hasta la llegada del Realismo, cuando...

Antibody-driven design of a human cytomegalovirus gHgLpUL128L subunit vaccine that selectively elicits potent neutralizing antibodies

Kabanovaa, Anna ; Perez, Laurent ; Lilleri, Daniele ; Marcandalli, Jessica ; Agatic, Gloria ; Becattini, Simone ; Preite, Silvia ; Fuschillo, Dario ; Percivalle,Elena ; Sallusto, Federica ; Gerna, Giuseppe ; Corti, Davide ; Lanzavecchia, Antonio

In: Proceedings of the national academy of sciences of the United States of America, 2014, vol. 111, no. 50, p. 17965-17970

The use of neutralizing antibodies to identify the most effective antigen has been proposed as a strategy to design vaccines capable of eliciting protective B-cell immunity. In this study, we analyzed the human antibody response to cytomegalovirus (human cytomegalovirus, HCMV) infection and found that antibodies to glycoprotein (g)B, a surface glycoprotein that has been developed as a HCMV...

Are meta-paths necessary?: revisiting heterogeneous graph embeddings

Hussein, Rana ; Yang, Dingqi ; Cudre-Mauroux, Philippe

In: Proceedings of the 27th ACM International Conference on Information and Knowledge Management, 2018, p. 437–446

The graph embedding paradigm projects nodes of a graph into a vector space, which can facilitate various downstream graph analysis tasks such as node classification and clustering. To efficiently learn node embeddings from a graph, graph embedding techniques usually preserve the proximity between node pairs sampled from the graph using random walks. In the context of a heterogeneous graph,...

Clubmark: a parallel isolation framework for benchmarking and profiling clustering algorithms on numa architectures

Lutov, Artem ; Khayati, Mourad ; Cudre-Mauroux, Philippe

In: 2018 IEEE International Conference on Data Mining Workshops (ICDMW), 2018, p. 1481–1486

There is a great diversity of clustering and community detection algorithms, which are key components of many data analysis and exploration systems. To the best of our knowledge, however, there does not exist yet any uniform benchmarking framework, which is publicly available and suitable for the parallel benchmarking of diverse clustering algorithms on a wide range of synthetic and...

Advances in characterizing surface water-groundwater interactions : combining unconventional data with complex, fully-integrated models

Schilling, Oliver S. ; Brunner, Philip (Dir.) ; Hunkeler, Daniel (Codir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2017.

Caractériser et simuler les interactions entre les eaux de surface et souterraines s’avère être un enjeu de plus en plus important afin de garantir une eau de qualité pour des puits de pompage situés à proximité d’une rivière. Grâce à la dernière génération de modèles numériques physiques intégrant les écoulements de surface et souterrains, il est maintenant possible de...

Isolation and characterization of oxalotrophic bacteria from tropical soils

Bravo, Daniel ; Braissant, Olivier ; Cailleau, Guillaume ; Verrecchia, Eric ; Junier, Pilar

In: Archives of Microbiology, 2015, vol. 197, no. 1, p. 65-77

The oxalate–carbonate pathway (OCP) is a biogeochemical set of reactions that involves the conversion of atmospheric CO2 fixed by plants into biomass and, after the biological recycling of calcium oxalate by fungi and bacteria, into calcium carbonate in terrestrial environments. Oxalotrophic bacteria are a key element of this process because of their ability to oxidize calcium...

Signatures of the bonding-antibonding splitting in the $c$-axis infrared response of moderately underdoped bilayer and trilayer cuprate superconductors

Mallett, Benjamin P. P. ; Maršík, Premysl ; Munzar, Dominik ; Bernhard, Christian ; Dubroka, Adam

In: Physical Review B, 2019, vol. 99, no. 5, p. 054513

We report on results of our analysis of the c-axis infrared conductivity, σc(ω), of bilayer LnBa2Cu3O7−δ (Ln=La, Nd, Y) and trilayer Bi2Sr2Ca2Cu3O10+δ high-Tc superconductors. The analysis employs the multilayer model involving the conductivity of the bilayer or trilayer unit, σbl(ω), and that of the spacing layers separating the latter units, σint(ω). For the YBa2Cu3O7−δ sample...
