Since Offshore Financial Centers (OFCs) generally provide bank secrecy to foreign investors they are likely to attract criminal money. Recently however, academic writings have pointed to the fact that OFCs might have beneficial economic effects. In this context, we address the question whether pressure exerted by international organizations on offshore financial centers may be effective enough to enforce compliance with anti-money laundering regulations. Supposing that onshore and offshore banking centers compete with each other, we show that if costs of being lax (in particular, reputation costs) in customer identification are high enough, offshore banks have an incentive to comply credibly and that in spite of the existence of bank secrecy. Furthermore, the likelihood that an offshore bank credibly opts for monitoring foreign deposits increases with the degree of international financial integration and with the tax difference between onshore and offshore centers.

For the general audience, Wikipedia is considered the source of “truth,” especially for scientific knowledge. While studies of Wikipedia usually focus on the accuracy of the knowledge within it, few studies have explored its hierarchy and categorization. This study aims to describe how scientific information is organized into disciplines in Wikipedia. I take as a case study the Hebrew Wikipedia and examine the representation and interrelations of five social sciences: sociology, anthropology, economics, political science, and psychology. I gather data from Wikipedia entries categorized under each of these disciplines and create a network that contains categories and subcategories derived from these entries. Using network analysis techniques, I estimate the strength of the relations between the disciplines. Results indicated that while sociology, anthropology, and political science are strongly linked to each other, psychology and economics are relatively isolated. As there is a hierarchical difference between these disciplines, the result is a hierarchical value of the scientific knowledge presented in these Wikipedia entries. An interesting case is the distance between economics and sociology, since under the subcategory “Inequality,” the entries are uniquely categorized under sociology or economics but rarely under both categories. I claim this is an example of a fractal walking the distinction between the two disciplines. [less ▲]

The text written by William Pinar on “strict discipline” raises issues that can be uncomfortable and yet will benefit most from leaving the closet behind. Pinar here emphasizes the vulnerability of young learners, behavioral norms under continuous pressure as schooling rises in importance for life chances, the power of masters, and the tensions of guiding and disciplining children and adolescents as they orient themselves morally in their own cohorts and in contrast to their elders. His concept of Currere, or the running of the course and the lived experiences of curriculum that constitute a person’s education (see Pinar 2011), underscores the significance of subjectivity, individuality, indeed: developmental distinctive-ness. Pupils’ innocence and their blossoming on the path to adulthood as well as the close contact required in interactive learning processes inherently provide moments of fondness and aversion—and sometimes even passion. The latter have become verboten in an age shocked by innumerable cases of sexual abuse in family, ecclesiastical, and pedagogic settings, and sensitive about the lifelong damage often caused by such acts. There are also costs to ignoring the potential and the need for understanding and intimacy in learning processes, whether intergenerational or among diverse peers. [less ▲]

Objective Even though genetic predisposition has proven to be an important element in Parkinson's disease (PD) etiology, monozygotic (MZ) twins with PD displayed a concordance rate of only about 20% despite their shared identical genetic background. Methods We recruited 5 pairs of MZ twins discordant for idiopathic PD and established skin fibroblast cultures to investigate mitochondrial phenotypes in these cellular models against the background of a presumably identical genome. To test for genetic differences, we performed whole genome sequencing, deep mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) sequencing, and tested for mitochondrial deletions by multiplex real‐time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) in the fibroblast cultures. Further, the fibroblast cultures were tested for mitochondrial integrity by immunocytochemistry, immunoblotting, flow cytometry, and real‐time PCR to quantify gene expression. Results Genome sequencing did not identify any genetic difference. We found decreased mitochondrial functionality with reduced cellular adenosine triphosphate (ATP) levels, altered mitochondrial morphology, elevated protein levels of superoxide dismutase 2 (SOD2), and increased levels of peroxisome proliferator‐activated receptor‐gamma coactivator‐α (PPARGC1A) messenger RNA (mRNA) in skin fibroblast cultures from the affected compared to the unaffected twins. Further, there was a tendency for a higher number of somatic mtDNA variants among the affected twins. Interpretation We demonstrate disease‐related differences in mitochondrial integrity in the genetically identical twins. Of note, the clinical expression matches functional alterations of the mitochondria [less ▲]

This research provides a critical analysis of the law applicable to two dimensions of risk management: damage compensation through insurance and risk prevention by the precautionary principle. The interdisciplinary perspective offers a critical perspective on the interaction of law with political, economic, scientific and social rationalities by the opposition of two theories: the Risk Society of Ulrich Beck and Asurantial Society of François Ewald. The different meanings of private insurance limits and dissonant discourse on the legal strategies used against risks are revealed. The thesis provides essential guidelines to the critical legal thinking. The originality of the analysis angle, which takes into account legal developments in regards of the changes in political rationality that occurred in the nineteenth century with the industrialization of Western societies, extends legal epistemology. A critical reflection on the evolution of theoretical concepts of law and its expected social role within society, considering the political and economical interplay, is suggested. [less ▲]
