"It can sink no lower": On fanaticism and dogma.
Our present discussion adds another layer. Dogma and normative ritual are not only the line of last defense against the etiolation of religious life. They are also the line of first defense against Judaism sinking, not ...
What is the opposite of weakness.
First Father Brown, G.K. Chesterton's answer to Sherlock Holmes. The serene wisdom of Father Brown and the haunted shadow of the whisky priest both belong to a world infinitely distant from the shabby stories of abuse that ...
The example of undressing: Obnubilations on the empty space of the rule.
(Law & Literature, 2017)
The legal example is used in large part to dress the rule. A naked norm, for common lawyers, is simply an abstraction, an umbrageous nebulosity that needs its particulars, its cases, to have meaning, impact and thought. ...
Editor's note: Of pity and the immigrant.
Hydrogen Production Catalyzed by Bidirectional, Biomimetic Models of the [FeFe]-Hydrogenase Active Site.
(American Chemical Society, 2014)
Active site mimics of [FeFe]-hydrogenase are shown to be bidirectional catalysts, producing H2 upon treatment with protons and reducing equivalents. This reactivity complements the previously reported oxidation of H2 by ...
Hydrogenase Enzymes and Their Synthetic Models: The Role of Metal Hydrides.
(American Chemical Society, 2016)
Hydrogenase enzymes efficiently process H2 and protons at organometallic FeFe, NiFe, or Fe active sites. Synthetic modeling of the many H2ase states has provided insight into H2ase structure and mechanism, as well as ...
New genes often acquire male-specific functions but rarely become essential in Drosophila.
(Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press, 2017-09-15)
Relatively little is known about the in vivo functions of newly emerging genes, especially in metazoans. Although prior RNAi studies reported prevalent lethality among young gene knockdowns, our phylogenomic analyses reveal ...
Co-culture Activation of MAP Kinase in Drosophila S2 Cells.
Intercellular communication often involves phosphorylation of signal transduction proteins, including mitogen-activated protein kinases (MAPKs). Immunological detection of phosphorylated MAPK can be used to monitor ...
How long have you been teaching undergraduate genetics and how have genetics courses changed since you were a student or when you first started teaching?
(Elsevier (Cell Press), 2018-01)
This is the second of a series of ten questions that we asked experts in the field of undergraduate genetics education. These questions range from the importance of genetics education to the practice of teaching undergraduates ...
What Genetic Concept(s) Do You Think Are the Hardest for the Students to Grasp?
(Elsevier (Cell Press), 2018-03)
This is the sixth in a series of 10 questions that we asked experts in the field of undergraduate genetics education. These questions range from the importance of genetics education to the practice of teaching undergraduates ...
