Surveillance in Hogwarts: Dumbledore's Balancing Act Between Managerialism and AnarchismAbstractThis article considers the fictional depiction of surveillance in Harry Potter, and compares the two different models of school leadership represented by Dolores Umbridge and Albus Dumbledore. The Harry Potter books put forward a vision of school leadership that affirms the necessity of surveillance. The optimal degree of surveillance means a fine balance between managerialism and anarchism. Neither a...

Efficient Hybrid Load Balancing AlgorithmAbstractThe scarcity of the servers to cater to the demands of the traffic is one of the most important tasks of load balancing (LB). The increasing number of users at the same point of time does not provide enough room for all users. To provide a solution to this problem, the servers formulate a queue where the users are buffered for a period of time before they get connected to the further servers. If the requests are extremely high, then the load balancer...

A Comparison of Cognitive Restructuring and Thought Listing for Excessive Acquiring in Hoarding DisorderAbstractExcessive acquiring is a common symptom of hoarding disorder (HD). Little is known about subjective distress associated with acquiring in HD. The present study examined acquiring-related distress and reactions to cognitive restructuring (CR) in 92 individuals with HD and 66 community control (CC) participants. All participants identified an item of interest at a high-risk acquiring location...

TLR7 activation in epilepsy of tuberous sclerosis complexAbstractBackgroundNeuroinflammation and toll-like receptors (TLR) of the innate immune system have been implicated in epilepsy. We previously reported high levels of microRNAs miR-142-3p and miR-223-3p in epileptogenic brain tissue resected for the treatment of intractable epilepsy in children with tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC). As miR-142-3p has recently been reported to be a ligand and activator of TLR7, a detector of exogenous and endogenous...

The complete genome sequence of this new virus is 8,384 nucleotides in length, excluding the 3' poly(A) tail. Its genome organization is very similar to those of four known robigoviruses, encoding a putative replicase, three 'triple gene block'...

Remembering to Forget: The Historic Irresponsibility of U.S. Big TobaccoAbstractSociety increasingly demands corporations to be accountable for their past misbehaviours. Some corporations engage in forgetting work with the aim of avoiding responsibility for their wrongdoings. We argue that whenever social actors have their past actions called into question and engage in forgetting work, an ethics of remembering takes place. A collective project of social forgetting is contingent on the emergence...

We empirically tested the full EA model. In doing so, we investigated the associations among racial discrimination,...
