Analyzing the effectiveness of solution for matching project

We used the NetworkX to successfully build the model and obtain the final matching. Therefore, the only thing left it to analyze the effectiveness of our solution. As we mentioned in the last post, NetworkX is used to minimize the outcome. In our case, we used it to minimize the “negative” outcome. The final result we obtained, the total satisfaction degree between all advisors and advisees, is 9958.5; and the total time to run the solution is approximately 14.5 seconds.

Further Development of My Project

Hello Readers!

The investigation into MK-STYX’s link with the autophagosomal marker protein LC3-II has yielded fascinating results, and adds a new dimension to our hypothesis that MK-STYX functions as a significant regulator of autophagy.  While we see how MK-STYX could promote the degradation of components already identified by the cell for clearance, I believe it is worth investigating how MK-STYX could impact upstream of this.  Specifically, I will look into if MK-STYX may affect the specific proteins and organelles that are “tagged” for digestion intracellularly and how exactly MK-STYX achieves this target marking.  Our lab carried out previous work wherein we identified MK-STYX as a clearer of stress granules and protein buildups known as aggressomes.  Because autophagic processes are a primary means of effecting the clearance of these cellular features, I wish to explore how MK-STYX could recruit the autophagy effectors like autophagosomes and lysosomes to these aggregations.

“Every Joke is a Little Revolution”: Raillery & Revolution in Pre-Revolutionary France, Continued

       A few weeks ago, I came across the incisive observation made by George Orwell that “every joke is a little revolution” (Keane). As has become clear through my research, jokes like those in the Bibliothèque de Campagne do indeed resemble “little revolutions” because they rail against the status quo, conveying radical ideas about members of the First and Second Estates.
