Silencing of Mig-7 expression inhibits in-vitro invasiveness and vasculogenic mimicry of human glioma U87 CellsGliomas are the most common malignant primary brain tumors with poor prognosis. The migration-inducing gene-7 (Mig-7) protein is a cysteine-rich protein. Vasculogenic mimicry can replace endothelium-dependent blood vessels and supply blood to tumors, thus promoting tumor invasion and metastasis. They have also been shown to play critical roles in the development and progression of various...

The Joan Gero Book AwardWedded to Privilege?

But, as far as I can tell, they do not garner the same level of academic capital, or provide their practitioners with the same rewards, as other kinds of scientific or industrial collaboration. Moreover, in countries such as mine (Israel), where archaeology is...

Growth performance and nutritional profile of mealworms reared on corn stover, soybean meal, and distillers' grainsAbstractMealworms are commercially reared on diets comprising of mixed grains. Substituting grains with agro-food industry by-products creates opportunities to valorize by-products and lowers the cost of insect rearing practices. In this study, three by-products (mushroom spent corn stover, highly denatured soybean meal, and spirit distillers' grains) as treatments and wheat bran as...

A plan to attenuate hunger and obesity: killing two birds with one stoneAbstractAimObesity and hunger are two of the most important health problems worldwide. In many developing countries, both of these conditions exist. The main reason for obesity is calorie intake that exceeds energy expenditure, and insufficient calorie intake is the main cause of hunger. The aim of the present manuscript is to introduce a plan for attenuating both of these problems.MethodsAccording to this plan, as a first step,...

The Effects of Militarized Interstate Disputes on Incumbent Voting Across GendersAbstractGender and politics research argues that men are more hawkish and supportive of militarized confrontations with foreign foes, while women ostensibly prefer more diplomatic approaches. This suggests that, after a militarized confrontation with a foreign power, women's likelihood of voting for the incumbent will both decrease and be lower than that of men.

We propose the use of vaccination nudges that exploit the very same decision biases that...

Revolution Against Non-violent OppressionAbstractOppressive governments that use violence against citizens, e.g. murder and torture, are usually thought of as liable to armed revolutionary attack by the oppressed population. But oppression may be non-violent. A government may greatly restrict political rights and personal autonomy by using surveillance, propaganda, manipulation, strategic detention and similar techniques without ever resorting to overt violence. Can such regimes be liable to revolutionary...
