The Distribution of the Stress Protein HSP70 in the Cerebellum of Patients with Schizophrenia  [PDF]
Makris Leonidas
Neuroscience & Medicine (NM) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/nm.2012.34045
Abstract: Data accumulated from neuro-imaging, clinical and morphological studies suggest that the cerebellum is involved in cognitive functions and thus may be important in the etiopathogenesis of schizophrenia, since patients show cognitive abnormalities. In the present study, we have attempted to localize cellular metabolic dysfunctions applying the immunohistochemical and Western blot method to demonstrate the expression of the stress protein HSP70, which is a marker of cellular metabolic dysfunction in the brain. We studied the post mortem brains’ cerebellum of 12 normal controls and 10 schizophrenics. We have used the polyclonal antibody rabbit anti-HSP70 on paraffin sections as well as on nitrocellulose membranes. Bound antibody was detected using the indirect method of streptavidin-peroxidase-DAB. The results in the cerebellum of controls showed intense HSP70 immunoreaction in the synaptic glomeruli of the granular cell layer, in the cytoplasm and dendrites of Purkinje cells. In the same areas of the cerebellum of schizophrenics the HSP70 immunoreactivity was minimal. These results suggest that the reduced levels of HSP70 in the cerebellum are likely to contribute synergistically to the cognitive dysfunction in schizophrenia. This may suggest abnormality of protective neural mechanisms in such pathological conditions.
Surfactant Adsorbed at the Oil-Water Interface and Its Elimination  [PDF]
Linfeng Yang, Leonidas Perez Estrada
Journal of Geoscience and Environment Protection (GEP) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/gep.2015.32007

Surfactants are widely used in the petroleum industry as one kind of Enhanced Oil Recovery methods (EOR). The oil sands mines in Northern Alberta are the largest one in the world. Due to using sodium hydroxide in bitumen extraction process, there are a lot of surfactant molecules in the tailing water. The surfactants from oil sands industry have brought a potential threat to the environment and human health. Depending on the performance of surfactant at the interface, this work focuses on removing these harmful surfactants from the tailing water and not bringing other possible hazardous substances. Moreover, a mathematical model is built to calculate the removal efficiency of the surfactant. The time required for removing the surfactant is determined experimentally. In conclusion, most of surfactant molecules are adsorbed at the oil/water interface. The fraction of the surfactant staying at the oil/water interface is high. Most of the surfactants in tailing water can be eliminated. The time of surfactant migration can be used for setting up the update time of the oil film in the automatic instrument, which can be designed in the future.

Diamela Eltit: El ensayo como estrategia narrativa
Atenea (Concepción) , 2004, DOI: 10.4067/S0718-04622004049000008
Abstract: the central hypothesis of this critical text is that eltit?s novels are permeated by a strategy: that of the essay, as understood in the etymological sense of the word, as an "attempt" or "experiment". nothing is definitive in these novels, neither the subject nor the discourse: the subject is always a figure in movement, in transit and the discourse constructs and reconstructs itself right before the reader?s eyes. without a doubt this is a "post-vanguard" strategy or, also, "post-modern", whose meaning the critical text tries to situate in the context of the contemporary chilean novel. even when the experimental strategy runs through all of eltit?s narrative order, the quotes privilege the novel por la patria.

Moderni j jausm sociogenez : meil ir draugyst Miguelio de Cervanteso “Don Kichote” ir Williamo Shakespeare’o “Romeo ir D uljetoje” | The sociogenesis of modern feelings: love and friendship in Miguel de Cervantes’ “Don Quixote” and William Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet”
Leonidas Donskis
Literatura , 2006,
Abstract: William Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet” reveals modern feelings – love and friendship – and their sociogenesis. Love and friendship emerge here as the feelings of a modern person. “Don Quixote of La Mancha”, the great novel by Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra, to this day keeps providing new insights and hot moral and philosophical issues for debate. “Don Quixote” is closely related to the great paradoxes of life: how to sustain our moral code in a world where morality is vanishing; how to sustain noble-mindedness and noble behaviour in a world that mocks and despises an individual precisely because he tries to sustain such behaviour. The novel depicts a dramatic crossroads of two epochs – the end of the Middle Ages and the beginning of modern times. In doing so, it offers philosophical, moral and political implications for societal existence: the loss of the moral code of chivalry and the end of medieval idealism. The psychogenesis and sociogenesis of the most intimate aspects of human exchanges – love and friendship – is approached, in the article, from the perspective of the history of consciousness.

2008 hunger strikes in Greek Prisons and their aftermath Lo sciopero della fame del 2008 nelle prigioni greche
Leonidas K.
lo Squaderno , 2009,
Abstract: The use of imprisonment has known an immense growth in Greece over the last couple of decades. Overcrowding in prison establishments is staggering and living conditions are deplorable, turning unrest and even riots into a commonplace occurrence. In recent years, with international watchdogs and national pressure groups joining prisoners in the chorus of outcry, the Greek state has been promising to effectuate fundamental reforms, including a decisive turn towards decarceration.
Jules Verne's Captain Nemo and French Revolutionary Gustave Flourens:A Hidden Character Model?
Leonidas Kallivretakis
Historical Review , 2008,
Abstract: This article treats the recent assumption made by Vernian specialist William Butcher that Jules Verne's most famous character, Captain Nemo, is based on the French revolutionary intellectual Gustave Flourens (1838-1871), son of the eminent physiologist J. P. M. Flourens. Gustave Flourens fought in the Cretan insurrection of 1866-1868, later participated in the republican opposition against Napoleon III's imperial regime, eventually became a friend of Karl Marx and was finally killed as a general of the Paris Commune. By comparing step-by-step Verne's inspiration and writing procedures with Flourens' unfolding activities and fame, it is concluded that there is little basis for such an assumption. The article includes also a brief account of the Cretan question in the nineteenth century and of the deep discord between Marx's and Flourens' respective analyses of the Eastern Question.
