Photo Essay: “It’s gonna be me there in the picture”. An attempt to understand audio-visual forms of self-representation by African migrants in Switzerland.

Sandra Mooser
The anthropologist Victor Turner (1987: 81) once defined humans as homo performans. This implies that people are «essentially performing creatures who constitute and sustain their identities and collectively enact their worlds through roles and rituals» (Conquergood 1983: 27). Nowadays, the media are an often frequented public space for such identity enactments. However, audio-visual media are not just a vivid platform for representations, they are also a useful research tool. They are especially well suited to...

A mating-type mutagenesis screen identifies a zinc-finger protein required for specific DNA excision events in Paramecium

Olivier Arnaiz, Mariusz Nowacki, Simran Bhullar, Eric Meyer, Cyril Denby Wilkes & Linda Sperling
In the ciliate Paramecium tetraurelia, functional genes are reconstituted during development of the somatic macronucleus through the precise excision of ∼45 000 single-copy Internal Eliminated Sequences (IESs), thought to be the degenerate remnants of ancient transposon insertions. Like introns, IESs are marked only by a weak consensus at their ends. How such a diverse set of sequences is faithfully recognized and precisely excised remains unclear: specialized small RNAs have been implicated, but in their absence...

Characteristics and Outcome of Twenty-Nine Implant-Related Infections of the Hand and Fingers: Results from a Twelve-Year Observational Study.

Thomas Wirth, Esther Vögelin, Rahel Meier & Parham Sendi
BACKGROUND Implant-related infections in hand surgery are dreaded complications, potentially leading to loss of finger joint function or amputation. Knowledge about the clinical presentation and treatment concepts of these infections is limited. The aim of this study is to present a consecutive series of patients with implant-related infections of the finger joints and wrist. PATIENTS AND METHODS We identified 25 patients with 29 implant-related infections. Infections were categorized as osteosynthesis-related infections (ORIs) or arthroplasty-related infections...

Genetic differentiation, phenotypic plasticity and adaptation in a hybridizing pair of a more common and a less common Carex species

Lisanna Schmidt, Markus Fischer, Bernhard Schmid & Tatjana Oja
Phenotypic variation may be genetically determined or reflect phenotypic plasticity. More common plants are expected to be less differentiated between and within regions and more adapted than less common ones. However, such differences might not develop in hybridizing species which cannot evolve completely independently. We collected 311 genets of Carex flava, 215 of C. viridula and 46 of their hybrid C. × subviridula from 42 natural populations in cold temperate Estonia, mild temperate Lowland Switzerland and alpine...

Middens, currents and shorelines: Complex depositional processes of waterlogged prehistoric lakeside settlements based on the example of Zurich-Parkhaus Opéra (Switzerland)

Jörg Schibler, Ferran Antolín, Maarten Reinier Van Hardenbroek, Philippe Rentzel, Stefanie Jacomet, Marguerita Schäfer, Niels Bleicher, Heide Hüster Plogmann, Philipp Wiemann, Oliver Heiri, Christine Pümpin, Simone Häberle, Noëmi Zweifel & Monika Toth
Circumalpine lakeside settlements have been declared Unesco world heritage in 2011. Their importance is mainly due to waterlogged preservation of organic material and hence the outstanding potential of these sites for performing detailed archaeological studies of prehistoric societies. However, the details of the taphonomic processes (depositional environment, development of anoxia, lateral or vertical displacement of objects, etc.) have rarely been studied. Consequently, interpretations based on find distributions or comparisons of find densities remain difficult. Zurich-Parkhaus...

Difficulties in emotion regulation and symptom dimensions in patients with obsessive-compulsive disorder

Seyed Mehdi Samimi Ardestani, Shera Malayeri, Vahid Khosravani & Farangis Sharifi Bastani
The present research aimed to investigate the difficulties in emotion regulation (DER) among patients with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and to predict obsessive-compulsive (OC) symptom dimensions based on DER dimensions. Eighty outpatients with OCD and 80 normal controls completed the Yale-Brown Obsessive Compulsive Scale (Y-BOCS), the Obsessive Compulsive Inventory-Revised (OCI-R), the Difficulties in Emotion Regulation Scale (DERS) and the Depression Anxiety Stress Scales (DASS-21). OCD patients revealed significantly higher scores on DER dimensions including lack of...

Plasma source and loss at comet 67P during the Rosetta mission

K. Altwegg, R. Hajra, C. Carr, A.I. Eriksson, E. Ducrot, K.L. Heritier, X. Vallières, M. Galand, A. Beth, M. Rubin, J.L. Burch, F.L. Johansson & P. Henri
Context. The Rosetta spacecraft provided us with a unique opportunity to study comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko from a close perspective and over a two-year time period. Comet 67P is a weakly active comet. It was therefore unexpected to find an active and dynamic ionosphere where the cometary ions were largely dominant over the solar wind ions, even at large heliocentric distances. Aims. Our goal is to understand the different drivers of the cometary ionosphere and assess their...

Expertenstudie über die Wahrnehmung des Einkaufsverhaltens von Spitälern aus Sicht der Lieferanten : eine Studie des WIG - Winterthurer Instituts für Gesundheitsökonomie - im Auftrag von ML Healthcare Partners

Florian Liberatore, Alfred Angerer & Tim Brand
Die Entscheidungsprozesse und Verantwortlichkeiten im Spital haben sich über die Jahre geändert, um neuen Anforderungen des Gesundheitswesens gerecht zu werden. In der Geschäftsbeziehung zwischen Lieferanten und Spitälern sorgen diese veränderten Bedingungen immer häufiger für Unklarheiten in der Schnittstelle, die eine effiziente Zusammenarbeit beider Akteure verhindern. Vor diesem Hintergrund zielt die Studie im Auftrag von ML Healthcare Partners darauf ab, das Einkaufsverhalten von Spitälern aus der Sicht von Herstellern und Händlern der Bereiche Pharma, Medizintechnik und...

Gouverner c’est prévoir : foresight als ganzheitlicher Prozess zur strategischen Steuerung am Beispiel des Kantons Aargau

Caroline Brüesch & Daniel Brändli
2012 wurde im Kanton Aargau der Prozess zur Erarbeitung des neuen Entwicklungsleitbilds 2013–2022 lanciert. Die Erarbeitung einer langfristigen Planung stellt die Exekutive vor die Herausforderung, in der Gegenwart die notwendigen Weichenstellungen für eine ungewisse Zukunft vorzubereiten, ohne dass dazu eine umfassende faktenbasierte Grundlage besteht. Im Auftrag der Staatskanzlei des Kantons Aargau erarbeitete das Institut für Verwaltungs-Management (IVM, Zürcher Hochschule für angewandte Wissenschaften) für den Kanton Aargau – zusammen mit internen und externen Experten – eine...

Studying second-generation transitions into adulthood in Switzerland : a biographical approach

Eva Mey
This chapter aims to identify the approach, interests, and specific contributions of biographical research in the case of the analysis of the second-generation transition into adulthood. It is based on a biographical study that looked at how second-generation residents experience and manage the transition from school to professional life and adulthood. A specificity of the study is that persons were interviewed twice, first at the end of the compulsory school (i.e., ninth grade) and second,...
