Hello, I am using the Multiplex ELISA Kit For Mouse Cytokine Panel 2 (4-Plex) purchased from Boster Bio to measure the four cytokines IL-6, IL-1B, TNF-a, and INF-y. In this plate, all four biomarkers for each cytokine are present in each well.
Boster Bio and its distributor Quansys Biosciences claim that I need an imager, a microplate reader that will actually capture an image of my plate, to be able to analyze the luminescence emitted by each cytokines' antigen.
I currently do not have access to an imager of this sort, and I am wondering if anyone has been able to circumvent this issue and was still able to use a normal microplate reader? Or, does anyone have any idea for how I should go about measuring each cytokines' luminescent response with a normal ELISA reader?
We all have seen a very big rise in the streaming of the entertainment content over the OTT platforms in the wake of the global pandemic and the resultant lockdown.

Do I have to measure the character against something?
I need to retrofit a 35mm film projector with an optical element that can rotate the projected image to any given degree. I first thought of a Dove prism, but it has to be built between the film material and the lens, and Dove prisms are relatively long (>100mm) if it has a 24mm image circle. Are there other optical components that could be used for this and what program would be the best to simulate the optical setup?

why are long and rich constructed sentences, refused in scientific articles from human sciences fields such as psychology, history, litterature, linguistics, philosophy, policy, culture, cinema, theatre, music... and so on?
does a long-well-constructed sentences reflect the advanced redaction level of the researcher or make his research boring?
are reviewers unable to support the length of sentences to keep concentration until finishing reading the whole article?
are there any scientific/methodological rules for redaction of human sciences research articles?
thank you for the interest that you will give to this question

Here is the CFP for the main conference of the project INDELIBLE (Eng) / INDELEBILE (It) – Representation in the arts of (in)visible violence against women and their resistance - https://acis.org.au/visual-and-performance-studies/
The conference will take place 23-25 October 2019 – Adelaide (South Australia) and a selection of papers will be published in a special issue of a highly ranked journal or dedicated volume. Visual arts, performing arts and literature are instrumental in exposing the complexity of the numerous forms that violence against women and girls can take in the contemporary world, as well as exploring new and old forms of resistance. Our interdisciplinary conference aims to contribute to the ‘glocal’ conversation on the topic of gendered violence and at the same time raise awareness of the global extent of the problem, by analysing ways in which both such violence and resistance to it are represented in the arts. While a key strand of the conference will concern the arts in contemporary Italy, its scope will be broad, encouraging comparison with other societies across space and time. In line with this aim, we welcome papers engaging with any of the following (and associated) topics, in relation to poetry, literature, theatre, opera, music, cinema or other visual arts: Family violence Places and sites of violence War, conflict and violence Migration, diaspora and violence Resistance vs politics Language and images of violence and resistance Myth in representations of violence Historical developments and representations viewed through a contemporary lens Activism and international campaigns (including #MeToo / #wetoogether / #TimesUp / Se non ora quando / Non una di meno / La violenza non è amore / Panchine rosse) Key-note speaker: Dacia Maraini (writer, dramaturg, screenwriter) Please send a 250-300 word abstract (in Italian or English) and a short bio to Luciana d’Arcangeli, firstname.lastname@example.org, in an email titled “ACIS 2019 INDELIBLE-INDELEBILE”, by 30 March 2019.
This conference is supported by the Australasian Centre for Italian Studies (ACIS) and is part of the ACIS Visual and Performing Arts Research Group project INDELIBLE (Eng) / INDELEBILE (It) THE REPRESENTATION OF (IN)VISIBLE VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN AND THEIR RESISTANCE
I am investigating how using different gel filtration media affects the purification of a protein with the molecular mass of 50KDa.
I have used a variety of media (Sephadex G100, Sephacryl S200, Ultrogel AcA 44, Bio Gel P 150, Ultrogel AcA 34, Ultrogel AcA 54, and Bio Gel P60) but was unable to purify my protein with either of these.
My only guess is that the gel fractionation ranges in the media used are not appropriate to actually purify my protein and that this requires a higher resolution technique.
Is this correct? Any suggestions?

My research aim to explore the representation of black lives, in Hollywood and Nollywood, exploring anthropology study to find the gap between ''Black lives reality'' and ''How the cinema portrays them''.

I am working on my book project about the sustainability development in cultural management context and try to collect as much examples as possible. Especially I am looking for examples to show formal organizations/institutions/business where a social participation is one of a management method. So if it is possible:
Could you give me some interesting examples where: - budget - program / offer is/was created together with different stakeholders, and especially with the recipients/audience? I think about different organizations like cinema houses, permanent organizations, culture businesses, theaters etc.
Please give me detailed information that will allow me to contact the institution directly, or website address or English-language research/articles etc. on this subject.
I also collect examples of social participation in cultural policy making so this kind of examples are welcome but this first point is more important for me now.
Need references about modern cinematographic Romantism to testify a new Mal du siècle in Lav Diaz's work.

Considering the media modifications brought about by digital technologies, we are starting to talk about Post-cinema and about the need to update national and international legislation that defines and governs television.

I'm trying to find any research available that shows whether or not it's possible for users to get sick in virtual reality experiences from fading to black.

Ideally there might be some larger scale studies that show community trends. It would be fine to have some of the narrative psychology studies out there or neuroimaging, but what I really want to see if there has been a sociological study. So, for example, movie ABC opened and later that year there was a potentially correlated decrease in XYZ.
It could be useful because cinema is related with deep human experiences like faith, which seems to be an indispensable condition for theology. But it could be harmful because it could lead to a relativistic way of thinking faith, beginning not from Christian Revelation, but only from subjective or emotive considerations.
