Canadian Bank Notes and Dominion Notes: Lessons for Digital Currencies

Ben Fung, Scott Hendry & Warren E. Weber
This paper studies the period in Canada when both private bank notes and government-issued notes (Dominion notes) were simultaneously in circulation. Because both of these notes shared many of the characteristics of today's digital currencies, the experience with these notes can be used to draw lessons about how digital currencies might perform. The paper begins with a brief historical review of how these notes came into existence and of the regulations regarding their issuance. It...

Fitness effects of spontaneous mutation in a warming world

Jeffry L. Dudycha, Elizabeth S. Davenport, Trenton C. Agrelius & Krista B. Harmon
Spontaneous mutations fuel evolutionary processes and differ in consequence, but the consequences depend on the environment. Biophysical considerations of protein thermostability predict that warm temperatures may systematically increase the deleteriousness of mutation. We sought to test whether mutation reduced fitness more when measured in an environment that reflected climate change projections for temperature. We investigated the effects of spontaneous mutations on life history, size, and fitness in 21 mutation accumulation lines and 12 control lines...

Differentially expressed genes of Peromyscus leucopus fibroblast cultures treated with lipopolysaccharide or buffer alone

Alan Barbour, Youwen Zhang, Ana Milovic & Hippokratis Kiaris
This experiment and its results were part of a larger study of the differential responses of the white-footed deermouse Peromyscus leucopus and the house mouse Mus musculus to single injections of lipopolysaccharide (LPS). The entire study is presented in the associated manuscript in submission and in the listed pre-print. The aim of this particular experiment was to identify differentially expressed genes (DEG) of fibroblast cultures of P. leucopus. The experiment identified 543 DEGs that were...

Gluten-free diet exposure prohibits pathobiont expansion and gluten sensitive enteropathy in B cell deficient mice

Jason Kubinak
In humans, celiac disease (CeD) is a T-cell-driven gluten-sensitive enteropathy (GSE) localized to the small bowel (duodenum). The presence of antibodies specific for gluten- and self-antigens are commonly used diagnostic biomarkers of CeD and are considered to play a role in GSE pathogenesis. Previously, we have described an apparent T-cell-mediated GSE in CD19-/- mice, which develop weak and abnormal B cell responses. Here, we expand on this observation and use a mouse model of complete...

Brief Report: Employees’ Perceptions of Stress and Support During a Pandemic Mandated Telework

Dimple Sunayna Johnson, Aaron Johnson, Kristen Crossney & Emily Devereux
COVID-19 has forced the knowledge-based workforce into full-time remote work, amplifying every-day stressors. The crisis has resulted in employees having to juggle work and home life simultaneously, while forcing many organizations with little to no experience to implement and manage teleworking. This brief study explores employee perceived stress as it relates to perceived support and age within an American workforce during the COVID-19 pandemic. In a global era of uncertainty and crisis, the findings suggest...
