Bereits seit Beginn der 80er Jahre übersteigt die Arbeitskräftenachfrage in Luxemburg das lokale Arbeitskräfteangebot und die Unternehmen greifen auf Grenzpendler aus den Nachbarregionen zurück. Im Juni dieses Jahres wurden knapp 133.400 Grenzgänger gezählt, von denen über die Hälfte aus Frankreich kommt (51%), gefolgt von Belgien (26%) und Deutschland (23%). Sie stellen gut 42,5% der im Großherzogtum beschäftigten Arbeitnehmer – im Jahr 1980 lag ihr Anteil noch bei 9%. Während die wachsenden Einpendlerzahlen die Arbeitsmärkte der Nachbarregionen entlasten und die konjunkturelle Entwicklung im Großherzogtum vorantreiben, macht sich in Luxemburg mancherorts Unmut breit.

This paper presents a novel classification strategy for 3D objects. Our technique is based on using a global geodesic function to intrinsically describe the surface of an object. The choice of the global geodesic function ensures the invariance of the classification procedure to scaling and all isometric transformations. Using the Jensen-Shannon divergence, feature parameters are extracted from the probability distribution functions of the global geodesic function for each one of the classes. These parameters are used in the decision of a class membership of an object. This approach demonstrates low computational cost, efficiency, and robustness to resolution over many different data sets. [less ▲]

This paper explores the effects of the recent interventions of the Bank of Japan on the level and volatility of the yen/dollar exchange rate. A special attention is devoted to the prominent features affecting the signal conveyed by these interventions. The results show a clear duality: small unilateral interventions are counterproductive while large and isolated ones influence the FX market in the desired directions. It is also found that the perverse effect is avoided through coordinated operations. [less ▲]

The southeastern Po Plain is affected by high natural and anthropogenic subsidence. The area is well suited to test the application of an observational strategy which combines different techniques to extract information on the spatial and temporal variability of the subsidence. The simultaneous availability, at a few stations, of several geodetic observation techniques such as Global Positioning System (GPS), gravity, and Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (InSAR) allows for validation of the individual time series. The combination takes advantage of the complementary strengths of each technique by overcoming the limitations inherent in each single technique alone. The combination of velocities derived from the GPS and gravity data, further complemented by the results of the InSAR Permanent Scatterers technique, allows us to monitor continuously, in space and time, vertical crustal movements. This high-density information is of major importance for understanding the processes responsible for the observed deformation. Here long-term trends were derived, enabling us to map the behavior of subsidence (even exceeding 20 mm/yr) with high spatial resolution in the southeastern Po Plain. The uplifting behavior of the Apennines chain bordering the Po Plain is identified together with a narrow zone separating the contrasting vertical crustal movements.

Because of the occurrence of different types of mutations, comprehensive genetic testing for Parkinson's disease (PD), dopa-responsive dystonia (DRD), and myoclonus-dystonia (M-D) should include screening for small sequence changes and for large exonic rearrangements in disease-associated genes. In diagnostic and research settings, the latter is frequently omitted or performed by laborious and expensive quantitative real-time PCR (qPCR). Our study aimed to evaluate the utility of a novel method, multiplex ligation-dependent probe amplification (MLPA), in molecular diagnostics of movement disorders. We have analyzed, by MLPA, genomic DNA from 21 patients affected with PD, DRD, or M-D, in which the presence of exon rearrangement(s) (n = 20) or of a specific point mutation (detectable by MLPA, n = 1) had been established previously by qPCR or sequencing. In parallel, we have studied, in a blinded fashion, DNA from 49 patients with an unknown mutational status. Exon rearrangements were evident in 20 samples with previously established mutations; in the 21st sample the known specific point mutation was detected. We conclude that MLPA represents a reliable method for large-scale and cost-effective gene dosage screening of various movement disorders genes. This finding reaches far beyond a simple technical advancement and has two major implications: (1) By improving the availability of comprehensive genetic testing, it supports clinicians in the establishment of a genetically defined diagnosis; (2) By enabling gene dosage testing of several genes simultaneously, it significantly facilitates the mutational analysis of large patient and control populations and thereby constitutes the prerequisite for meaningful phenotype-genotype correlations.

All jurisdictions supply corporations with legal tools to prevent or punish asset diversion by those, whether managers or dominant shareholders, who are in control. As previous research has shown, these rules, doctrines and remedies are far from uniform across jurisdictions, possibly leading to significant differences in the degree of investor protection they provide. Comparative research in this field is wrought with difficulty. It is tempting to compare corporate laws by taking one benchmark jurisdiction, typically the US, and to assess the quality of other corporate law systems depending on how much they replicate some prominent features. We take a different perspective and describe how three major continental European countries (France, Germany, and Italy) regulate dominant shareholders' self-dealing by looking at all the possible rules, doctrines and remedies available there. While the doctrines and remedies reviewed in this article are familiar enough to corporate lawyers and legal scholars from the respective countries, this is less true for many participants in the international discussion, which remains dominated by Anglophone legal scholars and economists. We suggest that some of these doctrines and remedies, namely the German prohibition against concealed distributions, the role of minority shareholders in the prosecution of abus de biens sociaux in France, and nullification suits in all three countries and especially in Germany and Italy, have not received the attention they deserve.
