In recent years, the spotlight of international attention on Brazil has often been in the area of logistics infrastructure—for example, on its capacity to deal with the high demand expected during the World Cup and the Olympics. However, neither comp... Read More about Business-State Relations in Brazil: Challenges of the Port Reform Lobby.

Animation, branding and authorship in the construction of the ‘anti-Disney’ ethos: Hayao Miyazaki’s works and persona through Disney film criticism (2016)
Journal Article
Hernández-Pérez, M. (2016). Animation, branding and authorship in the construction of the ‘anti-Disney’ ethos: Hayao Miyazaki’s works and persona through Disney film criticism. Animation : an interdisciplinary journal, 11(3), 297-313. https://doi.org/10.1177/1746847716660684

Walt Disney (1901-1966) is one of the most important figures in the history of cinema, but also he may also be one of the most criticized. Adjectives referring to Disney in their different forms (‘Japanese Disney’, ‘Asian Disney’, ‘Disney from the Or...

Responsive versus scheduled feeding for preterm infants (2016)
Journal Article
Watson, J., & McGuire, W. (2016). Responsive versus scheduled feeding for preterm infants. The Cochrane database of systematic reviews, 2016(8), doi:10.1002/14651858.CD005255.pub5

Background Feeding preterm infants in response to their hunger and satiation cues (responsive, cue-based, or infant-led feeding) rather than at scheduled intervals might enhance infants' and parents' experience and satisfaction, help in the establish...

Environmental concentration of carbamazepine accelerates fish embryonic development and disturbs larvae behavior (2016)
Journal Article
Qiang, L., Cheng, J., Yi, J., Rotchell, J. M., Zhu, X., & Zhou, J. (2016). Environmental concentration of carbamazepine accelerates fish embryonic development and disturbs larvae behavior. Ecotoxicology, 25(7), 1426-1437. https://doi.org/10.1007/s10646-016-1694-y

Environmental pollution caused by pharmaceuticals has been recognized as a major threat to the aquatic ecosystems. Carbamazepine, as the widely prescribed antiepileptic drug, has been frequently detected in the aquatic environment and has created con...

Enhanced exercise and regenerative capacity in a mouse model that violates size constraints of oxidative muscle fibres (2016)
Journal Article
Omairi, S., Matsakas, A., Degens, H., Kretz, O., Hansson, K., Solbrå, A. V., …Patel, K. (2016). Enhanced exercise and regenerative capacity in a mouse model that violates size constraints of oxidative muscle fibres. eLife, 5, doi:10.7554/eLife.16940

A central tenet of skeletal muscle biology is the existence of an inverse relationship between the oxidative fibre capacity and its size. However, robustness of this relationship is unknown. We show that superimposition of Estrogen-related receptor g... Read More about Enhanced exercise and regenerative capacity in a mouse model that violates size constraints of oxidative muscle fibres.

Synthesis and characterization of biodegradable lignin nanoparticles with tunable surface properties (2016)
Journal Article
Richter, A. P., Bharti, B., Armstrong, H. B., Brown, J. S., Plemmons, D., Paunov, V. N., …Velev, O. D. (2016). Synthesis and characterization of biodegradable lignin nanoparticles with tunable surface properties. Langmuir : the ACS journal of surfaces and colloids, 32(25), 6468-6477. https://doi.org/10.1021/acs.langmuir.6b01088

Lignin nanoparticles can serve as biodegradable carriers of biocidal actives with minimal environmental footprint. Here we describe the colloidal synthesis and interfacial design of nanoparticles with tunable surface properties using two different li...
