Multinational corporations have been criticised for their rhetorical support to - as opposed to substantive engagement with - gender equality in their corporate social responsibility (CSR) activities in poor countries. Many host countries have started regularizing CSR in recent years, and there is great variation between countries and different sectors when it comes to the gendered dimensions of social investments. This article focuses on the factors that influence CSR in the petroleum sector, using Equinor in Tanzania as a case study.

Proteasome function is impaired in Alzheimer's disease (AD). Proteasome activation is followed by a decrease in amyloid-beta (Aβ) load. A reduced amount of Aβ correlates with significantly improved behavior and frailty level. Proteasome activation represents a promising intervention for alleviating AD pathology.

Women represent ⅔ of the cases of Alzheimer's disease (AD). Current research has focused on differential risks to explain higher rates of AD in women. However, factors that reduce risk for AD, like cognitive/brain reserve, are less well explored. We asked: what is known about sex and gender differences in how reserve mitigates risk for AD?
