    2017-10-01

    Development study on Concrete Encase Steel (CES) composite structure system has been continuously conducted toward the practical use. CES structure is composed of steel and fiber reinforced concrete. In previous study, it was found that CES structure has good seismic performance from experimental study of columns, beam - column joints, shear walls and a two story two span frame. However, as fundamental study on CES beam could be lacking, it is necessary to understand the structural performance of CES beam. In this study, static loading tests of CES beams were conducted with experimental valuable of steel size, the presence or absence of slab and thickness of slab. And restoring characteristics, failure behavior, deformation behavior, and strength evaluation method of CES beam were investigated. As the results, it was found that CES beam showed stable hysteresis behavior. Furthermore it was found that the flexural strength of the CES beam could be evaluated by superposition strength theory.

    1997-01-01

    Full Text Available Les eaux de surface sont prélevées pour divers usages industriels, parmi lesquels la production d'énergie électrique représente une large part. Dans les circuits d'eau brute se fixent de nombreuses espèces d'organismes aquatiques, qui perturbent le fonctionnement des installations et sont susceptibles d'entraîner l'indisponibilité de certaines d'entre elles. Dans certains cas, l'irruption de nouvelles espèces pose un problème grave à l'industrie. L'introduction de deux espèces de moules zébrées (genre Dreissena dans les Grands Lacs américains, puis leur extension progressive vers le sud des États-Unis au cours des dernières années, se chiffre par un dommage pour l'industrie estimé à cinq milliards de dollars par an en 2000. L'impact écologique de la moule zébrée en Amérique du Nord a fait l'objet de nombreux travaux ; dans la phase d'extension rapide de l'espèce, il semble significatif. En Europe, la moule zébrée constitue aussi une menace pour les circuits industriels ; c'est pourquoi cette espèce a fait l'objet de nombreuses études, notamment en France sur la Seine, le Rhône et la Moselle. Deux nouvelles espèces invasives sont récemment apparues dans les cours d'eau européens : il s'agit du clam asiatique Corbicula fluminea et d'un amphipode : Corophium curvispinum. Elles s'ajoutent à la liste faunistique des organismes observés dans les circuits de centrales thermiques installées sur les cours d'eau français : spongiaires, hydraires, bryozoaires, mollusques. Pour assurer la disponibilité des circuits, il faut pouvoir contrôler le développement de ces espèces ; ce qui implique une connaissance approfondie de leur biologie et de leur écologie. Les méthodes de lutte actuellement mises en oeuvre au plan industriel, ou qui sont à l'étude, sont brièvement passées en revue.

  15. Synthesis of CeS and interactions with molten metals

    Krikorian, O.H.; Curtis, P.G.

    1988-01-01

    Hot-pressed and sintered discs of single-phase CeS were tested for interaction with molten aluminium, uranium, and iron to determine the conditions under which reaction first begins and the nature of the reaction. Aluminium begins to react with CeS at ∼ 1190 K, slowly dissolving cerium and forming a thin layer of Ce 3 S 4 at the reaction interface. At 1363 K, aluminium wets and spreads over the CeS surface and dissolves ∼ 01 at% Ce. Ce 3 Al 11 precipitates out in the aluminium phase on cooldown. Uranium does not react with CeS at 1673 K, but at 1873 K it wets and spreads on CeS and dissolves ∼ 100 atom ppm S, which precipitates out as US on cooldown. Iron wets CeS at 1873 K and 1973 K but does not spread or interact. Because of the desirable containment characteristics of CeS and similar sulfides for molten metals, we recommend their use in a number of applications. (author)

  20. On Estimation of the CES Production Function - Revisited

    Henningsen, Arne; Henningsen, Geraldine

    2012-01-01

    Estimation of the non-linear Constant Elasticity of Scale (CES) function is generally considered problematic due to convergence problems and unstable and/or meaningless results. These problems often arise from a non-smooth objective function with large flat areas, the discontinuity of the CES...... function where the elasticity of substitution is one, and possibly significant rounding errors where the elasticity of substitution is close to one. We suggest three (combinable) solutions that alleviate these problems and improve the reliability and stability of the results....

    Method CES (collisional electron spectroscopy), patented in Russia, the USA, Japan, China, Germany and Britain, allows to analyze the gaseous mixtures using electron spectroscopy under high pressures up to atmospheric without using vacuum. The design of VUV photoionization detector was developed based on this method. Such detector is used as a portable gas analyzer for continuous personal bio-medical monitoring. This detector measures energy of electrons produced in ionization with resonance photons, whose wavelength situated in the vacuum ultraviolet (VUV). Nowadays, micro plasma source of such photons on resonant line of Kr with energy of 10,6 eV is developed. Only impurities are ionized and detected by the VUV-emission, meanwhile the main components of air stay neutral that reduces background signal and increases the sensibility along with accuracy. The experimental facilities with VUV photoionization sensors CES are constructed with the overall sizes about 10*10*1 mm. The watt consumption may comprise less than 1W. Increase of electrometer amplifier's sensibility and more high-aperture construction are used today to increase the sensibility of CES-detectors. The wide range of detectable molecules and high sensitivity allow the development of portable device, which can become the base of the future preventive medicine.

  12. Wound-Healing Potential of Cultured Epidermal Sheets Is Unaltered after Lyophilization: A Preclinical Study in Comparison to Cryopreserved CES

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    H. Jang

    2013-01-01

    Full Text Available Lyophilized Cultured Epidermal Sheets (L-CES have been reported to be as effective as the cryopreserved CES (F-CES in treating skin ulcers. However, unlike F-CES, no preclinical study assessing wound-healing effects has been conducted for L-CES. The present study was set out to investigate the microstructure, cytokine profile, and wound-healing effects of L-CES in comparison to those of F-CES. Keratinocytes were cultured to prepare CES, followed by cryopreservation at −70°C and lyophilization. Under microscopic observation, intact cells with apparent intracellular junctions were observed in L-CES. The L-CES, like fresh CES, consisted of three to four well-maintained epidermal layers, as shown by the expression of keratins, involucrin, and p63. There were no differences in the epidermal layer or protein expression between L-CES and F-CES, and both CES were comparable to fresh CES. TGF-α, EGF, VEGF, IL-1α, and MMPs were detected in L-CES at levels similar to those in F-CES. In a mouse study, wounds treated with L-CES or F-CES completely healed at least 4 days faster than untreated wounds. CES-treated wounds completely healed by day 10, while the untreated wounds did not heal by day 14. Masson’s trichrome staining showed that collagen deposition in the CES-treated wounds was highly increased in the dermis of the wound center compared to that in the control wounds. Thus, this study demonstrates that L-CES is as clinically effective as F-CES for wound treatment.

  13. Energy-Extended CES Aggregate Production: Current Aspects of Their Specification and Econometric Estimation

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Paul E. Brockway

    2017-02-01

    Full Text Available Capital–labour–energy Constant Elasticity of Substitution (CES production functions and their estimated parameters now form a key part of energy–economy models which inform energy and emissions policy. However, the collation and guidance as to the specification and estimation choices involved with such energy-extended CES functions is disparate. This risks poorly specified and estimated CES functions, with knock-on implications for downstream energy–economic models and climate policy. In response, as a first step, this paper assembles in one place the major considerations involved in the empirical estimation of these CES functions. Discussions of the choices and their implications lead to recommendations for CES empiricists. The extensive bibliography allows those interested to dig deeper into any aspect of the CES parameter estimation process.

  14. Sacubitril Is Selectively Activated by Carboxylesterase 1 (CES1) in the Liver and the Activation Is Affected by CES1 Genetic Variation.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Shi, Jian; Wang, Xinwen; Nguyen, Jenny; Wu, Audrey H; Bleske, Barry E; Zhu, Hao-Jie

    2016-04-01

    Sacubitril was recently approved by the Food and Drug Administration for use in combination with valsartan for the treatment of patients with heart failure with reduced ejection fraction. As a prodrug, sacubitril must be metabolized (hydrolyzed) to its active metabolite sacubitrilat (LBQ657) to exert its intended therapeutic effects. Thus, understanding the determinants of sacubitril activation will lead to the improvement of sacubitril pharmacotherapy. The objective of this study was to identify the enzyme(s) responsible for the activation of sacubitril, and determine the impact of genetic variation on sacubitril activation. First, an incubation study of sacubitril with human plasma and the S9 fractions of human liver, intestine, and kidney was conducted. Sacubitril was found to be activated by human liver S9 fractions only. Moreover, sacubitril activation was significantly inhibited by the carboxylesterase 1 (CES1) inhibitor bis-(p-nitrophenyl) phosphate in human liver S9. Further incubation studies with recombinant human CES1 and carboxylesterase 2 confirmed that sacubitril is a selective CES1 substrate. The in vitro study of cell lines transfected with wild-type CES1 and the CES1 variant G143E (rs71647871) demonstrated that G143E is a loss-of-function variant for sacubitril activation. Importantly, sacubitril activation was significantly impaired in human livers carrying the G143E variant. In conclusion, sacubitril is selectively activated by CES1 in human liver. The CES1 genetic variant G143E can significantly impair sacubitril activation. Therefore, CES1 genetic variants appear to be an important contributing factor to interindividual variability in sacubitril activation, and have the potential to serve as biomarkers to optimize sacubitril pharmacotherapy.

  18. Two alleles of the AtCesA3 gene in Arabidopsis thaliana display intragenic complementation.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Pysh, Leonard D

    2015-09-01

    Cellulose is the most abundant biomolecule on the planet, yet the mechanism by which it is synthesized by higher plants remains largely unknown. In Arabidopsis thaliana (L.) Heynh, synthesis of cellulose in the primary cell wall requires three different cellulose synthase genes (AtCesA1, AtCesA3, and AtCesA6-related genes [AtCesA2, AtCesA5, and AtCesA6]). The multiple response expansion1 (mre1) mutant contains a hypomorphic AtCesA3 allele that results in significantly shorter, expanded roots. Crosses between mre1 and another allele of AtCesA3 (constitutive expression of VSP1, cev1) yielded an F1 with roots considerably longer and thinner than either parent, suggesting intragenic complementation. The F2 generation resulting from self-crossing these F1 showed three different root phenotypes: roots like mre1, roots like cev1, and roots like the F1. The segregation patterns of the three root phenotypes in multiple F2 and F3 generations were determined. Multiple characteristics of the roots and shoots were analyzed both qualitatively and quantitatively at different developmental stages, both on plates and on soil. The trans-heterozygous plants differed significantly from the parental mre1 and cev1 lines. The two alleles display intragenic complementation. A classic genetic interpretation of these results would suggest that cellulose synthesis requires homo-multimerization of cellulose synthase monomers. © 2015 Botanical Society of America.

    Cellulose synthase catalytic subunit genes, CesA, have been discovered in several higher plant species, and it has been shown that the CesA gene family has multiple members. HVR2 fragment of these genes determine the class specificity of the CESA protein and its participation in the primary or secondary cell wall synthesis. The aim of this study was development of specific and degenerated primers to flax CesA gene fragments leading to obtaining the class specific HVR2 region of the gene. Two pairs of specific primers to the certain fragments of CesA-1 and CesA-6 genes and one pair of degenerated primers to HVR2 region of all flax CesA genes were developed basing on comparison of six CesA EST sequences of flax and full cDNA sequences of Arabidopsis, poplar, maize and cotton plants, obtained from GenBank. After amplification of flax cDNA, the bands of expected size were detected (201 and 300 b.p. for the CesA-1 and CesA-6, and 600 b.p. for the HVR2 region of CesA respectively). The developed markers can be used for cloning and sequencing of flax CesA genes, identifying their number in flax genome, tissue and stage specificity.

    The "Center of Epidemiologic Studies - Depression scale" (CES-D) is a well-known screening tool for depression. Until now the criterion validity of the German version of the CES-D was not investigated in a sample of the adult general population. 508 study participants of the Austrian general population completed the CES-D. ICD-10 diagnoses were established by using the Schedules for Clinical Assessment in Neuropsychiatry (SCAN). Receiver Operating Characteristics (ROC) analysis was conducted. Possible gender differences were explored. Overall discriminating performance of the CES-D was sufficient (ROC-AUC 0,836). Using the traditional cut-off values of 15/16 and 21/22 respectively the sensitivity was 43.2 % and 32.4 %, respectively. The cut-off value developed on the basis of our sample was 9/10 with a sensitivity of 81.1 % und a specificity of 74.3 %. There were no significant gender differences. This is the first study investigating the criterion validity of the German version of the CES-D in the general population. The optimal cut-off values yielded sufficient sensitivity and specificity, comparable to the values of other screening tools. © Georg Thieme Verlag KG Stuttgart · New York.

    L'infection urinaire chez l'insuffisant rénal est fréquente et particulière dans sa prise en charge diagnostique et thérapeutique. L'objectif de notre étude est de déterminer le profil bactériologique et d’étudier les facteurs de risque des infections urinaires chez le patient insuffisant rénal chronique en milieu de néphrologie. Etude prospective débutée en Septembre 2012 menée au service de néphrologie à l'hôpital régional d'Oujda de l'oriental Marocain. Ont été inclus tous les patients hospitalisés en néphrologie avec une infection urinaire documentée. Nous avons analysé les données démographiques, cliniques, biologiques, et thérapeutiques de nos patients à l'admission et au cours de leurs hospitalisations. 48 épisodes d'infections urinaires chez 43 patients ont été colligés dont 3 enfants. L'incidence de l'infection urinaire dans notre étude était de 4,65%. La médiane d’âge était de 53 (32-66) années. 60,4% étaient de sexe féminin. Le germe isolé était un Escheria Coli dans 58,3% et un Klebsiella dans 29,2%. Le germe isolé était résistant à l'amoxicilline-acide clavulanique dans 83% des cas. L'antibiotique prescris en premiére intention chez nos patients était une céphalosporine de 3 éme génération dans 50%. L’évolution chez nos patients était favorable dans 89,6% des cas. 33,3% avaient présenté un sepsis et on a noté le décès dans 10,4% des cas. Les infections urinaires chez l'insuffisant rénal chronique reste très grave vu leur lourde morbi-mortalié d'où l'intêrét d'un dépistage précoce chez cette population. Un usage raisonné des antibiotiques est nécessaire afin de prévenir l'extension des résistances bactériennes. PMID:26213601

    The primary aim was to examine the depressive symptom structure of Mainland China adolescents using the Center for Epidemiologic Studies Depression Scale (CES-D). Exploratory factor analysis (EFA) and confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) were simultaneously conducted to determine the structure of the CES-D in a large scale, representative adolescent samples recruited from Mainland China. Multigroup CFA (N = 5059, 48% boys, mean = 16.55±1.06) was utilized to test the factorial invariance of the depressive symptom structure, which was generated by EFA and confirmed by CFA across gender. The CES-D can be interpreted in terms of 3 symptom dimensions. Additionally, factorial invariance of the new proposed model across gender was supported at all assuming different degrees of invariance. Mainland Chinese adolescents have specific depressive symptom structure, which is consistent across gender. © 2013 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

    The CES-D is a commonly used self-report assessment for depressive symptomatology. However, its psychometric properties have not been evaluated in Fiji. This study aims to evaluate the reliability and validity of English language and Fijian vernacular versions in ethnic Fijian adolescent schoolgirls. As part of the HEALTHY Fiji study, ethnic Fijian female adolescents (N = 523) completed the CES-D. Participants selected to respond in English or the local vernacular. Reliability (internal consistency, item-total score correlation, and test-retest estimates), validity (associations with other proxies for depression) and factor structure were assessed. Evaluations considered differences between language versions. In this sample, the CES-D had a Cronbach's α of 0.81 and item-total score correlation coefficients ranged between 0.2 and 0.63. One week test-retest reliability (ICC(2)) was 0.57. CES-D scores were higher among individuals who endorsed feelings of depression and suicidality compared to those who did not. ROC analyses of the CES-D versus binary depression and suicidality variables produced AUCs around 0.70 and did not support a discrete cut-off for significant disturbance. Findings were similar across the two language groups. The CES-D has acceptable reliability and validity among ethnic Fijian female adolescents in English and in the Fijian vernacular language. Findings support its utility as a dimensional measure for depressive symptomatology in this study population. Further examination of its clinical utility for case finding for depression in Fijian school-based and community populations is warranted. © The Author(s) 2013.

    Full Text Available OBJECTIVE: To establish the reliability and validity of a shortened (10-item depression scale used among HIV-positive patients enrolled in the Drug Treatment Program in British Columbia, Canada. METHODS: The 10-item CES-D (Center for Epidemiologic Studies Depression Scale was examined among 563 participants who initiated antiretroviral therapy (ART between August 1, 1996 and June 30, 2002. Internal consistency of the scale was measured by Cronbach's alpha. Using the original CES-D 20 as primary criteria, comparisons were made using the Kappa statistic. Predictive accuracy of CES-D 10 was assessed by calculating sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive values and negative predictive values. Factor analysis was also performed to determine if the CES-D 10 contained the same factors of positive and negative affect found in the original development of the CES-D. RESULTS: The correlation between the original and the shortened scale is very high (Spearman correlation coefficient  =0.97 (P<0.001. Internal consistency reliability coefficients of the CES-D 10 were satisfactory (Cronbach α=0.88. The CES-D 10 showed comparable accuracy to the original CES-D 20 in classifying participants with depressive symptoms (Kappa=0.82, P<0.001. Sensitivity of CES-D 10 was 91%; specificity was 92%; and positive predictive value was 92%. Factor analysis demonstrates that CES-D 10 contains the same underlying factors of positive and negative affect found in the original development of the CES-D 20. CONCLUSION: The 10-item CES-D is a comparable tool to measure depressive symptoms among HIV-positive research participants.

    1988-08-01

    Ces-VP is a prototype rule-based expert system for consulting the vector programming, based on the knowledge of vectorization of nuclear codes at JAERI during these 10 years. Experts in vectorization can restructure nuclear codes with high performance on vector processors, since they have know-how for choosing the best technique among a lot of techniques that were acquired from the experience of vectorization in the past. Frequency in trial and error will be reduced if a beginner can easily use the know-how of experts. In this report, at first the contents of Ces-VP and its intention are shown. Then, the method for acquiring the know-how of vectorization and the method for making rules from the know-how are described. The outline of Ces-VP implemented on Fujitsu expert tool ESHELL is described. Finally, the availability of Ces-VP is evaluated from the data gathered from practical use and its present problems are discussed. (author)

    Full Text Available Le documentaire Le Temps des grâces de Dominique Marchais s’attache aux regards que des agriculteurs de différentes générations portent sur leur activité et aux analyses d’agronomes et d’économistes sur l’agriculture française. Il donne à voir quelques unes des multiples façons dont le travail agricole modèle les paysages et les écosystèmes et souligne le poids des politiques publiques dans ces orientations. Son constat global laisse plus de place à une industrialisation de l’agriculture qui conduit à l’uniformisation des produits et à la mort des sols qu’à des alternatives viables pour les écosystèmes. La confrontation de ce documentaire avec des travaux majeurs de la sociologie sur ce thème produit une impression de décalage et renvoie à des réflexions théoriques et méthodologiques.Dominique Marchais’ documentary, Le Temps des grâces, deals with different farmer generations’ vision of their work. It also provides an agronomic and economic analysis of French farming, showing some of the many different ways in which agricultural activity shapes landscape and ecosystems, while stressing the responsibility of public policy in such processes. The general observation highlights the growing industrialisation of agriculture, leading more to the uniformisation of products and destruction of soil fertility than to ecologically viable alternatives. When compared with major sociological studies in this area, the documentary highlights certain deviations while referring to theoretical and methodological thinking in this domain.En su documental Le Temps des grâces, Dominique Marchais se interesa en la visión que agricultores de diferentes generaciones tienen de su quehacer y en algunos análisis de la agricultura francesa realizados por agrónomos y economistas.

    Full Text Available It is well known that the study of the shape and the properties of the production possibility frontier is a subject of great interest in economic analysis. Vîlcu (Vîlcu, 2011 proved that the generalized Cobb-Douglas production function has constant return to scale if and only if the corresponding hypersurface is developable. Later on, the authors A. D. Vîlcu and G. E. Vîlcu, 2011 extended this result to the case of CES production function. Both results establish an interesting link between some fundamental notions in the theory of production functions and the differential geometry of hypersurfaces in Euclidean spaces. In this paper, we give some characterizations of minimal generalized Cobb-Douglas and CES production hypersurfaces in Euclidean spaces.

    2017-10-01

    Detecting psychological distress among international students can be challenging given diverse languages, cultural backgrounds, and lack of refined measurement properties of measures tailored to international students. Despite the challenges, ensuring that a psychological distress measure works effectively has considerable potential value for assessment purposes. The current study evaluates the measurement properties of a short 10-item version of Radloff's Center for Epidemiologic Studies Depression Scale (CES-D). Grounded in long-standing evidence on gender differences in depressive symptoms, specific attention was given to examining measurement invariance of the CES-D Short-form across women and men. Based on a large, two-cohort sample of international students ( N = 468), and through multiple analyses evaluating factor structure and measurement invariance, we derived an even briefer, seven-item single-factor form of the CES-D (CES-D Short-form International) that can be used with international students.

    Full Text Available Introdução: A proporção de partos cesarianos no Brasil está muito além da preconizada pela Organização Mundial da Saúde, o mesmo ocorrendoem um Hospital Universitário de Porto Alegre, sul do Brasil. A taxa de cesáreas é considerada um indicador poderoso na avaliação da qualidade da assistência perinatal. Nosso objetivo foi analisar o padrão dos partos cesarianos e normais em um hospital universitário no período de2004 a 2012 quanto à média de permanência, faixa etária da parturiente, taxa de infecção relacionada ao parto, tipo de pagador e idade gestacional. Métodos: Estudo de coorte retrospectivo, observacional, com dados coletados no Sistema de Indicadores de Gestão (IG de um Hospital Universitário, abrangendo o período de2004 a 2012. Resultados: A taxa de cesárea no hospital universitário nos anos analisados foi em média 33,21%. Em relação às cesarianas realizadas nesta instituição durante o período em estudo, observou-se que: há uma maior prevalência de cesáreas em mulheres acima de 40 anos, ocorreu um crescimento de partos cesarianos pré-termo, a média de permanência e taxa de infecção foram superiores em relação às mulheres submetidas ao parto vaginal, e houve predomínio de cesarianas na saúde suplementar quando comparada ao Sistema Único de Saúde. Conclusões: As elevadas taxas de cesárea no hospital universitário, embora acima do recomendado pela OMS, são justificadas por se tratar de um hospital terciário e estão em conformidade com o padrão observado no país.

    Full Text Available Cellulose is the primary determinant of mechanical strength in plant tissues. Late-season lodging is inversely related to the amount of cellulose in a unit length of the stem. Wheat is the most widely grown of all the crops globally, yet information on its CesA gene family is limited. We have identified 22 CesA genes from bread wheat, which include homoeologs from each of the three genomes, and named them as TaCesAXA, TaCesAXB or TaCesAXD, where X denotes the gene number and the last suffix stands for the respective genome. Sequence analyses of the CESA proteins from wheat and their orthologs from barley, maize, rice, and several dicot species (Arabidopsis, beet, cotton, poplar, potato, rose gum and soybean revealed motifs unique to monocots (Poales or dicots. Novel structural motifs CQIC and SVICEXWFA were identified, which distinguished the CESAs involved in the formation of primary and secondary cell wall (PCW and SCW in all the species. We also identified several new motifs specific to monocots or dicots. The conserved motifs identified in this study possibly play functional roles specific to PCW or SCW formation. The new insights from this study advance our knowledge about the structure, function and evolution of the CesA family in plants in general and wheat in particular. This information will be useful in improving culm strength to reduce lodging or alter wall composition to improve biofuel production.

    Full Text Available Identification of biomarkers to recognize individuals with Barrett's esophagus (BE predisposed to develop malignancy is currently a pressing issue. We utilized gene expression profiling to compare molecular signatures of normal esophagus and stomach, BE, and adenocarcinoma (AC to identify such potential biomarkers. Over 22,000 genes were analyzed by oligonucleotide microarrays on 38 unique RNA. Unsupervised and supervised clusterings were performed on a subset of 2849 genes that varied most significantly across the specimens. Unsupervised clustering identified two discernable molecular BE profiles, one of which was similar to normal gastric tissue (“BE1”, and another that was shared by several of the AC specimens (“BE2”. The BE1 profile included expression of several genes that have been described as tumor-suppressor genes, most notably trefoil factor 1 (TFF-1. The BE2 profile included expression of genes previously found overexpressed in cancers, such as carboxylesterase-2 (CES-2. IHC demonstrated the loss of TFF-1 late in the progression of BE to AC. It also revealed CES-2 as being upregulated in AC documented to have arisen in the presence of BE. These potential biomarkers, as well as the relative expression of genes from BE1 versus those from BE2, may be validated in the future to aid in risk stratification and guide treatment protocols in patients with BE and associated AC.

    We present a pragmatic approach to image reconstruction for data from the micro crystal elements system (MiCES) fully 3D mouse imaging positron emission tomography (PET) scanner under construction at the University of Washington. Our approach is modelled on fully 3D image reconstruction used in clinical PET scanners, which is based on Fourier rebinning (FORE) followed by 2D iterative image reconstruction using ordered-subsets expectation-maximization (OSEM). The use of iterative methods allows modelling of physical effects (e.g., statistical noise, detector blurring, attenuation, etc), while FORE accelerates the reconstruction process by reducing the fully 3D data to a stacked set of independent 2D sinograms. Previous investigations have indicated that non-stationary detector point-spread response effects, which are typically ignored for clinical imaging, significantly impact image quality for the MiCES scanner geometry. To model the effect of non-stationary detector blurring (DB) in the FORE+OSEM(DB) algorithm, we have added a factorized system matrix to the ASPIRE reconstruction library. Initial results indicate that the proposed approach produces an improvement in resolution without an undue increase in noise and without a significant increase in the computational burden. The impact on task performance, however, remains to be evaluated

    2015-12-01

    Full Text Available With the aim of verifying the suitability of the CES-D scale for use in long-term care institutions for older adults, the CES-D questionnaire was used to collect patient-reported assessments, and two well-known psychometric instruments – the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS and the Barthel Index of Abilities of Daily Living – were used to collect nurse-reported assessments, based on observations of patients’ behaviours. With regard to possible frequent cases of cognitive impairment and/or insufficient motivation to give sensible responses to CES-D questions, the patient-reported responses were collected from patients during one-on-one sessions with a nurse. The reliability, concurrent validity, and the trustworthiness of the obtained data were supported with proper values of the Cronbach’s alpha coefficient, 0.70 < alpha < 0.85, with significant correlation between CES-D and HADS-Depression, R = 0.50, p < 0.001, and with significant correlation between scores of particular CES-D items vs. final CES-D evaluations of depression, proved by significance p < 0.001 for 18 of 20 CES-D items. These findings supported the effectiveness of the one-on-one session methodology in questionnaire surveys for older adults. The postulation that cases of self-reported depression included somewhat different information about the patient than nurse-reported depression concerning the same patient was supported with the evidence that, in spite of the significant correlation between the Barthel Index and HADS-Depression, R = −0.17, p = 0.016, and in spite of the significant correlation between CES-D and HADS-Depression, the correlation between the Barthel Index and CES-D, equal to R = −0.08 was insignificant at p = 0.244. The findings of this study, considered jointly, support the valuableness of the CES-D scale for use in one-on-one surveys for older adults.

    Dixit's 1975 paper "Welfare Effects of Tax and Price Changes" constitutes a seminal contribution to the theory of tax reform within a second-best general equilibrium framework. The present paper clarifies ambiguities with respect to normalisation which has led to misinterpretation of some of Dixit......'s analytical results. It proves that a marginal tax reform starting from a proportional tax system will improve social welfare if it increases the supply of labour, whatever the rule of normalisation adopted. In models which impose additive separability between consumption and leisure in household preferences...... elasticities can be derived from the parameters of the CES-UT and how it may be used for applied tax reform analysis...

    L'hyperoxalurie primitive est une anomalie métabolique congénitale rare caractérisée par un excès de production avec accumulation d'oxalate secondaire à un déficit enzymatique hépatique. Nous rapportons le cas d'un patient de 18 ans qui avait comme antécédent des lithiases rénales récidivantes depuis l'enfance évoluant vers l'insuffisance rénale chronique terminale, mis en hémodialyse périodique depuis 4 ans avec apparition d'une anémie résistante à l’érythropoïétine pour laquelle il a été multitransfusé et qui était admis pour prise en charge de douleurs osseuses invalidantes d'aggravation progressive associées à un syndrome tumoral fait d'adénopathies périphériques et de splénomégalie avec dyspnée et altération de l’état général. Le bilan réalisé avait objectivé de multiples images lytiques lacunaires et condensantes au niveau des poignets et des mains avec des petits reins calcifiés, une pleurésie avec péricardite de grande abondance drainée, une ascite de moyenne abondance avec splénomégalie homogène, une anémie normochrome normocytaire à 7.2 g/dl avec hyperferritinémie à 1129 μg/l et un syndrome inflammatoire biologique. La calcémie était spontanément normale à 97 mg/l avec hyperphosphorémie à 83 mg/l et hypoparathyroïdie à 74,85 pg/ml. Les PAL étaient à 136 UI/l, l'aluminium sérique à 13μg/l et la Vitamine D native à 20,87ng/ml. Le diagnostic d'hyperoxalurie a été retenu sur les données de la biopsie ostéomédullaire objectivant des dépôts de cristaux d'oxalate de calcium avec fibrose médullaire et réaction macrophagique à corps étranger.

    Full Text Available Abstract Background Depression is common in rheumatoid arthritis (RA, however reported prevalence varies considerably. Two frequently used instruments to identify depression are the Center for Epidemiological Studies Depression (CES-D scale, and the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS. The objectives of this study were to test if the CES-D and HADS-D (a satisfy current modern psychometric standards for unidimensional measurement in an early RA sample; (b measure the same construct (i.e. depression; and (c identify similar levels of depression. Methods Data from the two scales completed by patients with early RA were fitted to the Rasch measurement model to show that (a each scale satisfies the criteria of fit to the model, including strict unidimensionality; (b that the scales can be co-calibrated onto a single underlying continuum of depression and to (c examine the location of the cut points on the underlying continuum as indication of the prevalence of depression. Results Ninety-two patients with early RA (62% female; mean age = 56.3, SD = 13.7 gave 141 sets of paired CES-D and HAD-D data. Fit of the data from the CES-D was found to be poor, and the scale had to be reduced to 13 items to satisfy Rasch measurement criteria whereas the HADS-D met model expectations from the outset. The 20 items combined (CES-D13 and HADS-D satisfied Rasch model expectations. The CES-D gave a much higher prevalence of depression than the HADS-D. Conclusion The CES-D in its present form is unsuitable for use in patients with early RA, and needs to be reduced to a 13-item scale. The HADS-D is valid for early RA and the two scales measure the same underlying construct but their cut points lead to different estimates of the level of depression. Revised cut points on the CES-D13 provide comparative prevalence rates.

    Full Text Available The production function explains the mechanism through which inputs are changed into outputs and the partial efficiency of labour and capital. It also allows for understanding the elasticity of substitution, which measures the percentage change in factor proportions due to a percentage change in the marginal rate of technical substitution. In this research we have used aggregate production functions of Cobb-Douglas type in different time-series and cross-section analysis of Romania’s economic growth from the standpoint of the intensity of using capital and labour factors, as determinant elements for the level of production and GDP. We have also applied the two factor Constant Elasticity of Substitution (CES production function, which is considered to be the generalised form of the Cobb-Douglas function. Using the available statistical data regarding Romania’s economy in the 1990-2005 period, we have performed time-series and cross-section analysis based on the aggregated production functions at the national level.

    Full Text Available La socialdemocracia ha tenido en el Modelo Sueco su referente por antonomasia. Sin embargo, las raíces teóricas de esta experiencia histórica, lejos de implementar los principios típicos del keynesianismo, se asentaron sobre unas bases de marcado carácter neoclásico. A través del conocido como Modelo Rehn-Meidner, posteriormente afianzado por el llamado Modelo EFO, la socialdemocracia sueca estableció un marco de política fiscal y monetaria restrictiva en el que se desarrolló una política salarial solidaria cimentada en un poderoso sindicalismo y un sólido sistema corporativista de negociación colectiva centralizada. Así, mediante la paulatina igualación y la contención de los salarios, se buscaba estimular la productividad, mantener a raya los costes laborales y facilitar la concentración y la centralización del capital. El objetivo final era favorecer la competitividad del sector exportador sueco con el fin de asegurar una rentabilidad y un ritmo de acumulación adecuados.

    The prevalence of diabetes mellitus in Puerto Ricans has been identified and reported as being disproportionately higher as compared to other metabolic pathologies. Recently, diabetes has been identified as the third cause of mortality in Puerto Rico (Puerto Rico Health Department, Vital Statistics Annual Report, 1999-2001). The Research Center, Education and Medical Services for Diabetes in Puerto Rico (also known as the "Centro de Diabetes para Puerto Rico" [CDPR]) is a public corporation in the island created by the government to reduce diabetes prevalence, mortality and morbidity. The CDPR offers Diabetes Self Management Educational Training Program Schools for patients (DSMETPS) island wide. The research design was an ex-post facto. As part of the process, patients are administered an extensive sociodemographic and health information questionnaire, which also includes the CES-D (a symptomatology depressive scale). This study pretends to describe the diabetic patient profiles (n=27) using information from the DSMETPS of the CDPR and explore the association with the CES-D. Variables such as patients' needs, knowledge and understanding of the condition (i.e., pathology management, type and medications utilized and exercise and nutritional patterns), patient attitudes to diabetes and their relations with the CES-D were explored. Results show a negative association, controlling for age and gender, between patients diabetic education/knowledge and CES-D score. Diabetes educators in Puerto Rico need to identify depressive symptomatology in order to prevent mental health complications in their patients since this may affect their future treatment and prognosis. An interdisciplinary team is recommended to improve the effectivity of the intervention.

  4. Efficient Overproduction of Membrane Proteins in Lactococcus lactis Requires the Cell Envelope Stress Sensor/Regulator Couple CesSR

    Pinto, Joao P. C.; Kuipers, Oscar P.; Marreddy, Ravi K. R.; Poolman, Bert; Kok, Jan

    2011-01-01

    Background Membrane proteins comprise an important class of molecules whose study is largely frustrated by several intrinsic constraints, such as their hydrophobicity and added requirements for correct folding. Additionally, the complexity of the cellular mechanisms that are required to insert membrane proteins functionally in the membrane and to monitor their folding state makes it difficult to foresee the yields at which one can obtain them or to predict which would be the optimal production host for a given protein. Methods and Findings We describe a rational design approach to improve the lactic acid bacterium Lactococcus lactis as a producer of membrane proteins. Our transcriptome data shows that the two-component system CesSR, which senses cell envelope stresses of different origins, is one of the major players when L. lactis is forced to overproduce the endogenous membrane protein BcaP, a branched-chain amino acid permease. Growth of the BcaP-producing L. lactis strain and its capability to produce membrane proteins are severely hampered when the CesSR system itself or particular members of the CesSR regulon are knocked out, notably the genes ftsH, oxaA2, llmg_2163 and rmaB. Overexpressing cesSR reduced the growth defect, thus directly improving the production yield of BcaP. Applying this rationale to eukaryotic proteins, some of which are notoriously more difficult to produce, such as the medically-important presenilin complex, we were able to significantly diminish the growth defect seen in the wild-type strain and improve the production yield of the presenilin variant PS1Δ9-H6 more than 4-fold. Conclusions The results shed light into a key, and perhaps central, membrane protein quality control mechanism in L. lactis. Modulating the expression of CesSR benefited the production yields of membrane proteins from different origins. These findings reinforce L. lactis as a legitimate alternative host for the production of membrane proteins. PMID:21818275

    Full Text Available Aims: Depression is one of the most common mental disorders in children, and in adolescents, as in adults. Once its occurrence during childhood and adolescence leads to serious consequences in adulthood, its early detection is an important goal. Self-report instruments have a key role on accessing thoughts, feelings and behaviors in an easily, reliably and validly way. The aim of the current study is to assess psychometric properties (reliability and validity of the Portuguese translation of the Center for Epidemiological Studies-Depression Scale for Children (CES-DC. Methods: A school-based sample of 417 adolescents aged 12–18 years (M = 15,20, SD = 1,72 was involved in this study. Translation and Back Translation was made. To study convergent and divergent validity there were used the Portuguese versions of the Depression Anxiety Stress Scales (DASS 21, of the Children's Depression Inventory (CDI, and of the Students' Life Satisfaction Scale (SLSS which measure, respectively, negative emotional states (depression, anxiety and stress, depressive symptoms and global life satisfaction. Results: Factor analysis revealed three factors (mood, interpersonal relationships and happiness that explain 54% of the variance. The results show that the scale has an excellent internal consistency (α = 0,90, good temporal stability (r = 0,72 as an adequate convergent and divergent validity. Results showed that depressive symptoms varied in function of age and gender. Conclusions: The results of the present study provide initial adequate validity and reliability of the CES-DC. Nevertheless some limitations to this study, the results suggest that CES-DC can be a useful questionnaire in the assessment of depressive symptoms in Portuguese adolescents.

    Full Text Available Objetivo: Determinar el costo directo de la cesárea y el porcentaje de reembolso realizado por el Seguro Integral de Salud (SIS, en el Hospital de Apoyo Pomabamba (HAP, en Ancash. Material y métodos: Estudio de costos, transversal descriptivo de corte retrospectivo. Se consideraron todos los partos por cesárea en el periodo enero a diciembre 2003, 39 de ellas fueron sin complicaciones y 12 complicadas. Se revisaron las historias clínicas y los reportes operatorios de cada paciente. Se realizó análisis univariado considerando frecuencias, porcentajes y medidas de tendencia central y dispersión. Resultados: La edad media fue 25,57 años (rango: 16-43 años, el índice de cesárea en el periodo fue 5,9%. El costo directo por cesárea no complicada fue 307,64 nuevos soles y de la cesárea complicada 469,61 nuevos soles. La diferencia de 52,65% mayor a la cesárea complicada está relacionada al uso de medicamentos y mayor estancia hospitalaria. El monto por cesárea facturado al SIS en HAP fue 17 633,30 nuevos soles (media: 345,75 nuevos soles. Conclusiones: El porcentaje asumido por el HAP para las cesáreas financiadas por el SIS fue 36,5% (6 435,30 nuevos soles. Los costos directos calculados son propios del HAP y no se puede generalizar a otros hospitales, porque varían según las características y prácticas propias de cada hospital. Es necesario considerar estudios de costos que permitan observar posibles brechas en el financiamiento del SIS.(Rev Med Hered 2009;20:4-10.

    Background The aim of this study was to test the internal validity of the total Center for Epidemiologic Studies-Depression (CES-D) scale using Rasch analysis in a rheumatoid arthritis (RA) population. Methods CES-D was administered to 157 patients with RA over three time points within a 12 month period. Rasch analysis was applied using RUMM2020 software to assess the overall fit of the model, the response scale used, individual item fit, differential item functioning (DIF) and person separation. Results Pooled data across three time points was shown to fit the Rasch model with removal of seven items from the original 20-item CES-D scale. It was necessary to rescore the response format from four to three categories in order to improve the scale's fit. Two items demonstrated some DIF for age and gender but were retained within the 13-item CES-D scale. A new cut point for depression score of 9 was found to correspond to the original cut point score of 16 in the full CES-D scale. Conclusion This Rasch analysis of the CES-D in a longstanding RA cohort resulted in the construction of a modified 13-item scale with good internal validity. Further validation of the modified scale is recommended particularly in relation to the new cut point for depression. PMID:17629902

    Kidney transplantation is the therapy of choice for end-stage kidney disease. Graft's life span is shorter than expected due in part to the delayed diagnosis of various complications, specifically those related to silent progression. It is recognized that serum creatinine levels and proteinuria are poor markers of mild kidney lesions, which results in delayed clinical information. There are many investigation looking for early markers of graft damage. Decreasing kidney graft cortical microcirculation has been related to poor prognosis in kidney transplantation. Cortical capillary blood flow (CCBF) can be measured by real-time contrast-enhanced sonography (RT-CES). Our aim was to describe the natural history of CCBF over time under diverse conditions of kidney transplantation, to explore the influence of donor conditions and recipient events, and to determine the capacity of CCBF for predicting renal function in medium term. RT-CES was performed in 79 consecutive kidney transplant recipients during the first year under regular clinical practice. Cortical capillary blood flow was measured. Clinical variables were analyzed. The influence of CCBF has been determined by univariate and multivariate analysis using mixed regression models based on sequential measurements for each patient over time. We used a first-order autoregression model as the structure of the covariation between measures. The post-hoc comparisons were considered using the Bonferroni correction. The CCBF values varied significantly over the study periods and were significantly lower at 48 h and day 7. Brain-death donor age and CCBF levels showed an inverse relationship (r: -0.62, p<0.001). Living donors showed higher mean CCBF levels than brain-death donors at each point in the study. These significant differences persisted at month 12 (54.5 ± 28.2 vs 33.7 ± 30 dB/sec, living vs brain-death donor, respectively, p = 0.004) despite similar serum creatinine levels (1.5 ± 0.3 and 1.5 ± 0.5 mg/dL).

    The 10-item Centre for Epidemiological Studies Depression Scale (CES-D-10) is a depression screening tool that has been used in the South African National Income Dynamics Study (NIDS), a national household panel study. This screening tool has not yet been validated in South Africa. This study aimed to establish the reliability and validity of the CES-D-10 in Zulu, Xhosa and Afrikaans. The CES-D-10's psychometric properties were also compared to the Patient Health Questionnaire (PHQ-9), a depression screening tool already validated in South Africa. Stratified random samples of Xhosa, Afrikaans and Zulu-speaking participants aged 15 years or older (N = 944) were recruited from Cape Town Metro and Ethekwini districts. Face-to-face interviews included socio-demographic questions, the CES-D-10, Patient Health Questionnaire (PHQ-9), and WHO Disability Assessment Schedule 2.0 (WHODAS). Major depression was determined using the Mini International Neuropsychiatric Interview. All instruments were translated and back-translated to English. Construct validity was examined using exploratory factor analysis with varimax rotation. Receiver Operating Characteristics (ROC) curves were used to investigate the CES-D-10 and PHQ-9's criterion validity, and compared using the DeLong method. Overall, 6.6, 18.0 and 6.9% of the Zulu, Afrikaans and Xhosa samples were diagnosed with depression, respectively. The CES-D-10 had acceptable internal consistency across samples (α = 0.69-0.89), and adequate concurrent validity, when compared to the PHQ-9 and WHODAS. The CES-D-10 area under the Receiver Operator Characteristic curve was good to excellent: 0.81 (95% CI 0.71-0.90) for Zulu, 0.93 (95% CI 0.90-0.96) for Afrikaans, and 0.94 (95% CI 0.89-0.99) for Xhosa. A cut-off of 12, 11 and 13 for Zulu, Afrikaans and Xhosa, respectively, generated the most balanced sensitivity, specificity and positive predictive value (Zulu: 71.4, 72.6% and 16.1%; Afrikaans: 84.6%, 84.0%, 53.7%; Xhosa: 81

    Depression is one of the most prevalent mental disorders in later life. However, despite considerable research attention, great confusion remains regarding the association between ageing and depression. There is doubt as to whether a depression scale performs identically for different age groups and countries. Although measurement equivalence is a crucial prerequisite for valid comparisons across age groups and countries, it has not been established for the eight-item version of the Centre for Epidemiological Studies Depression Scale (CES-D8). Using multi-group confirmatory factor analysis, we assess configural, metric, and scalar measurement equivalence across two age groups (50-64 years of age and 65 or older) in eleven European countries, employing data from the Survey of Health, Ageing, and Retirement (SHARE). Results indicate that the construct of depression is comparable across age and country groups, allowing the substantive interpretation of correlates and mean levels of depressive symptoms.

    The study aimed to elucidate previously observed associations between morningness-eveningness and depressive symptomatology in university students. Relations between components of depressive symptomatology and morningness-eveningness were analysed. Nine hundred and seventy-four university students completed Polish versions of the Centre for Epidemiological Studies - Depression scale (CES-D; Polish translation appended to this paper) and the Composite Scale of Morningness. Principal component analysis (PCA) was used to test the structure of depressive symptoms. Pearson and partial correlations (with age and sex controlled), along with regression analyses with morning affect (MA) and circadian preference as predictors, were used. PCA revealed three components of depressive symptoms: depressed/somatic affect, positive affect, interpersonal relations. Greater MA was related to less depressive symptoms in three components. Morning circadian preference was related to less depressive symptoms in depressed/somatic and positive affects and unrelated to interpersonal relations. Both morningness-eveningness components exhibited stronger links with depressed/somatic and positive affects than with interpersonal relations. Three CES-D components exhibited stronger links with MA than with circadian preference. In regression analyses only MA was statistically significant for positive affect and better interpersonal relations, whereas more depressed/somatic affect was predicted by lower MA and morning circadian preference (relationship reversed compared to correlations). Self-report assessment. There are three groups of depressive symptoms in Polish university students. Associations of MA with depressed/somatic and positive affects are primarily responsible for the observed links between morningness-eveningness and depressive symptoms in university students. People with evening circadian preference whose MA is not lowered have less depressed/somatic affect. Copyright © 2016

    Full Text Available Objective: Compulsive or binge eating is a kind of disturbed eating behavior, which is mostly observed among dieting women, and is integrated with appetite disorder, and uncontrolled eating of plenty of junk food. The Compulsive Eating Scale (CES created first by Kagan & Squires in 1984, is an eight-item self-reporting instrument that is made to measure the severity of binge eating disorder. The aim of this study was to provide the reliability and validity of the Persian version of Compulsive Eating Scale (CES among overweight and obese women in Iran. Method: One hundred and twenty six (N = 126 overweight and obese women consented to participate in this study. We estimated the anthropometric indices, including body weight, height, waist and hip circumferences, a total body fat percentage, and visceral fat level with body analyzer all in standard situations. Then, the participants completed the CES. Next, to assess concurrent validity, Beck Depression Inventory, Spielberger anxiety scale, appetite visual analogue rating scale, Food Craving questionnaire, Three-Factor Eating Questionnaire-R18, and Restraint eating visual analogue rating scale were performed simultaneously. To assess test-retest reliability, CES was repeated for all the participants two weeks later. Moreover, we reported the internal consistency and factor analysis of this questionnaire. Furthermore, we estimated the concurrent correlation of CES with logically relevant questionnaires and body composition and anthropometric indices.Results: Based on the reliability analysis and factor analysis of the principal component by Varimax rotation, we extracted two factors: eating because of negative feelings, and overeating. Internal consistency (Cronbach's alpha of the CES was 0.85 (Cronbach alpha of the factors was 0.85, and 0.74, respectively. The test-retest correlation of the CES was 0.89.

    Full Text Available This article discusses the development of the concept of folk roots, introduced by Chilean singer-songwriters in the mid-seventies, as a strategy to legitimize their divergent practice from the norm of folklore in times of military rule. The institutionalization of this concept with the return of democracy in the early nineties and its continued tightening from a third generation of Chilean singersongwriters and bands derivatives from theater companies, allow us to discuss the problem of folk roots in times of globalization. We propose the concepts of posfolklore and hydroponic roots, attached to the trend of Chilean listeners and musicians to incorporate world music to their artistic practices and consumption. These concepts would facilitate the discussion of the mixing of influences in Chilean music and the consequent proliferation of intermediate rather than hegemonic identities in contemporary Chilean culture.

    Este artículo aborda el desarrollo del concepto de raíz folklórica, introducido por cantautores chilenos a mediados de los años setenta, como estrategia para legitimar corrientes divergentes del folklore de la norma imperante en tiempos del régimen militar. La institucionalización de este concepto con el retorno a la democracia y su continuo tensionamiento desde una tercera generación de cantautores nacionales y desde los nuevos grupos musicales derivados de compañías teatrales, permite reflexionar sobre el problema de las raíces en tiempos de globalización. Se proponen los conceptos de posfolklore y de raíces hidropónicas, adscritos a la permanente tendencia del músico y del auditor chileno a incorporar músicas del mundo a su práctica y consumo musical. Estos conceptos permiten discutir las mezclas en la música chilena y la consiguiente multiplicación de identidades intermedias más que hegemónicas en la cultura chilena contemporánea.

MÉTODOS: foi realizado estudo longitudinal, do tipo caso-controle com 3626 gestantes, no qual se verificou quais os fatores anteparto foram considerados de risco para cesárea, no período de 1 de setembro de 1999 a 31 de agosto de 2000. Posteriormente, criou-se modelo preditivo ideal, o qual permitiu quantificar o risco de cesárea para cada paciente na presença de um ou mais fatores de risco. A seguir, aplicou-se o modelo à amostra do estudo a fim de verificar o grau de concordância entre o risco previsto de cesárea e a realização do ato cirúrgico, ou seja, a eficácia na indicação de cesariana. RESULTADOS: aplicando-se o modelo preditivo na amostra, verificou-se que na ausência dos fatores de riscos anteparto, o risco basal de cesárea foi de 15,2%. O grau de concordância entre o previsto pelo modelo logístico e a ocorrência de cesárea foi de 86,6%. CONCLUSÕES: o modelo logístico permitiu identificar o risco basal de cesárea e quantificar a probabilidade de cesárea a partir da introdução do fator de risco. O modelo pode ser considerado útil e eficaz, uma vez que houve concordância entre o acerto e o previsto em 86,6% para cesariana, e 53,6% das pacientes submetidas ao parto normal, de fato, não tinham fator de risco para cesárea.PURPOSE: to create a predictive model for cesarean section at the "Professor Monteiro de Morais Maternity" after evaluation of antepartum risk factors of the pregnant women who delivered from September 1, 1999 to August 31, 2000, and then, to verify the efficacy of indication for cesarean section.

    Full Text Available Abstract Background Depression is a common co-morbid health problem in patients with diabetes that is underrecognised. Current international guidelines recommend screening for depression in patients with diabetes. Yet, few depression screening instruments have been validated for use in this particular group of patients. Aim of the present study was to investigate the psychometric properties of the Turkish version of the Centre for Epidemiologic Studies Depression Scale (CES-D in patients with type 2 diabetes. Methods A sample of 151 Turkish outpatients with type 2 diabetes completed the CES-D, the World Health Organization-Five Well-Being Index (WHO-5, and the Problem Areas in Diabetes scale (PAID. Explanatory factor analyses, various correlations and Cronbach's alpha were investigated to test the validity and reliability of the CES-D in Turkish diabetes outpatients. Results The original four-factor structure proposed by Radloff was not confirmed. Explanatory factor analyses revealed a two-factor structure representing two subscales: (1 depressed mood combined with somatic symptoms of depression and (2 positive affect. However, one item showed insufficient factor loadings. Cronbach's alpha of the total score was high (0.88, as were split-half coefficients (0.77-0.90. The correlation of the CES-D with the WHO-5 was the strongest (r = -0.70, and supported concurrent validity. Conclusion The CES-D appears to be a valid measure for the assessment of depression in Turkish diabetes patients. Future studies should investigate its sensitivity and specificity as well as test-retest reliability.

El riesgo de mortalidad como función del estado depresivo y de cada uno de los 4 factores de la CES-D fue estimado con el modelo de azar proporcional de Cox. Los participantes deprimidos (CES-D > 16 tuvieron un riesgo elevado de mortalidad (HR 1,23, 95% CI 1,03-1,49 después de la corrección de variables sociodemográficos. Quejas somáticas fue el único factor que predijo la mortalidad (HR 1,19, 95% CI 1,03-1,38. Después de excluir Quejas somáticas, la CES-D no predijo la mortalidad (HR 0,98, 95% CI 0,79-1,21. La asociación entre los síntomas depresivos de la CES-D y la mortalidad parece ser una función del factor Quejas somáticas. Es posible que la asociación entre los síntomas depresivos no somáticos y la mortalidad no sea tan robusta como indican los hallazgos anteriores.

    Full Text Available La discussion de projets de loi criminalisant l'achat des services sexuels constitue un sujet brûlant d'actualité dans plusieurs pays, dont le Canada. Pourtant, bon nombre d'études indiquent que la plupart des clients agissent de manière civilisée envers la personne travailleuse du sexe, alors que seule une infime minorité de clients présentent des comportements violents. Interviewant 16 femmes offrant des services d'escorte, quant à leur expérience de sexualité dans le cadre du travail, celles-ci ont beaucoup discuté des besoins qu'elles percevaient chez leurs clients, de même que des attitudes de ces derniers envers elles. Les participantes décrivent ceux-ci comme étant le plus souvent respectueux, la plupart recherchant un contact chaleureux avec elle et agissant en conséquence. En outre, ceux des clients qui ne recherchent qu'une expérience sexuelle tendent à être également respectueux envers l'escorte. Par contre, certains clients présentent une attitude ou un comportement désagréable. Quelques participantes ont également eu affaire à un client violent au cours de leur parcours comme escorte. La plupart des participantes étaient en mesure de choisir leurs clients, ce qui leur a permis de surtout rencontrer des clients aimables et qui, à l'occasion, leur procure également du plaisir sexuel. Par contre, les participantes plus vulnérables et moins capables de choisir et de maintenir leurs limites ont rencontré plus de clients désagréables ou agressifs.

    Full Text Available Gravidez ectópica na cicatriz de cesárea é a forma mais rara de gravidez ectópica e provavelmente uma das mais perigosas em função dos riscos de ruptura e hemorragia volumosa. Essa situação deve ser diferenciada da gravidez cervical e de abortamento em curso, para que o tratamento apropriado seja imediatamente oferecido. Desde o advento da ultra-sonografia transvaginal, a gravidez ectópica na cicatriz de cesárea pode ser diagnosticada precocemente na gestação e, para isso o ultra-sonografista deve estar familiarizado com e atento aos critérios diagnósticos, especialmente em mulheres com cicatriz de cesárea prévia. Descrevemos aqui um caso de gravidez ectópica em cicatriz de cesárea, cujo diagnóstico foi tardio, havendo apresentação de involução espontânea.Ectopic pregnancy in a cesarean scar is the rarest form of ectopic pregnancy and probably the most dangerous one because of the risk of uterine rupture and massive hemorrhage. This condition must be distinguished from cervical pregnancy and spontaneous abortion in progress, so that the appropriate treatment can be immediately offered. Since the advent of endovaginal ultrasonography, ectopic pregnancy in a cesarean scar can be diagnosed early in pregnancy if the sonographer is familiarized with the diagnostic criteria of this situation, especially in women with previous cesarean scar. Here we describe a case of ectopic pregnancy in a cesarean scar in which the diagnosis was considerably late, with presentation of spontaneous regression.

    Objectives Increasingly, medical research involves patients who complete outcomes in different languages. This occurs in countries with more than one common language, such as Canada (French/English) or the United States (Spanish/English), as well as in international multi-centre collaborations, which are utilized frequently in rare diseases such as systemic sclerosis (SSc). In order to pool or compare outcomes, instruments should be measurement equivalent (invariant) across cultural or linguistic groups. This study provides an example of how to assess cross-language measurement equivalence by comparing the Center for Epidemiologic Studies Depression (CES-D) scale between English-speaking Canadian and Dutch SSc patients. Methods The CES-D was completed by 922 English-speaking Canadian and 213 Dutch SSc patients. Confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) was used to assess the factor structure in both samples. The Multiple-Indicator Multiple-Cause (MIMIC) model was utilized to assess the amount of differential item functioning (DIF). Results A two-factor model (positive and negative affect) showed excellent fit in both samples. Statistically significant, but small-magnitude, DIF was found for 3 of 20 items on the CES-D. The English-speaking Canadian sample endorsed more feeling-related symptoms, whereas the Dutch sample endorsed more somatic/retarded activity symptoms. The overall estimate in depression scores between English and Dutch was not influenced substantively by DIF. Conclusions CES-D scores from English-speaking Canadian and Dutch SSc patients can be compared and pooled without concern that measurement differences may substantively influence results. The importance of assessing cross-language measurement equivalence in rheumatology studies prior to pooling outcomes obtained in different languages should be emphasized. PMID:23326538

    Full Text Available The Center of Epidemiologic Studies Depression Scale (CES-D is a commonly used self-report scale to measure depressive symptoms in the general population. In the present study, the Dutch version of the CES-D was administered to a sample of 837 Dutch-speaking adults of Belgium to examine the factor structure of the scale. Using confirmatory factory analysis (CFA, four first-order models and two second-order models were tested, and the second-order factor model with three pairs of correlated error terms provided the best fit to the data. Second, five socio-demographic variables (age, gender, education level, relation status, and family history of depression were included as covariates to the second-order factor model to explore the associations between background characteristics and the latent factor depression using a multiple indicators and multiple causes (MIMIC approach. Age had a significantly negative effect on depression, but the effect was not substantial. Female gender, lower education level, being single or widowed, and having a family history of depression were found to be significant predictors of higher levels of depression symptomatology. Finally, percentile norms on the CES-D raw scores were provided for subgroups of gender by education level for the general Dutch-speaking adult population of Belgium.

    Full Text Available Introducción. El maíz es un cereal básico en la alimentación mexicana y el más cultivado por los agricultores. Sin embargo, la demanda de maíz para consumo y de semilla mejorada (SM, ha ocasionado fuertes importaciones, pues en 2012, se importaron 9´515,000 t. Gran parte de la demanda de SM es cubierta por empresas transnacionales, y en menor medida por pequeñas empresas privadas y organismos gubernamentales como el Instituto Nacional de Investigaciones Forestales, Agrícolas y Pecuarias (INIFAP. El objetivo del trabajo fue conocer el mercado regional de SM en el estado de Veracruz, la posición comercial del INIFAP y las variables relevantes que motiva la decisión de compra. Método. En 2015 se aplicó un cuestionario a 100 productores de maíz para grano, en ocho municipios del estado de Veracruz, mediante el muestreo Respondent-Driven Sampling (RDS. El instrumento consideró preguntas abiertas y cerradas de opción múltiple, para obtener información socioeconómica y perceptual sobre el conocimiento y uso de semillas mejoradas (SM de origen INIFAP o las que acostumbran sembrar.

    Full Text Available A partir d’entretiens réalisés chez des éditeurs de presse en ligne français, nous dressons le portrait de plusieurs employés en charge d’optimiser le référencement des documents produits par les journalistes sur les moteurs de recherche, et en particulier sur les listes de liens hypertextes ordonnées par le leader du marché : Google. Ces employés ont un profil hybride, fruit d’une mise en tension de trois composantes de la production : l’aspect technique, l’aspect marketing et l’aspect éditorial. Nous décrivons leurs parcours, leurs motivations et leur place dans l’organisation. Nous expliquons ensuite pourquoi ce que les référenceurs définissent eux-mêmes comme leur « éthique » n’est ni tout à fait celle de Google ni tout à fait celle des journalistes, mais qu’ils orientent leurs actions de manière à satisfaire autant que possible à la fois les critères d’évaluation de Google et la déontologie des journalistes. D’autre part, nous tâchons de montrer comment cet « invisible » de la production journalistique peut agir. Nous expliquons notamment en quoi son action peut avoir une influence sur la ligne éditoriale d’un site de presse, et en particulier sur le choix des sujets traités par les journalistes. Puis nous décrivons les enjeux liés aux négociations entre le référenceur et la rédaction, de l’issue desquelles dépendent en partie la nature et le résultat du processus de production journalistique. Finalement, deux choses distinctes dépendent de l’action du référenceur : d’une part la maximisation du trafic, d’autre part le contrôle exercé par l’entreprise de presse sur les modalités de publication et de diffusion de ses contenus. Si son action réussit parfaitement, l’internaute ne se doutera pas de la présence de certains éléments destinés à optimiser le référencement, car chacun de ces éléments aura un intérêt, et un sens, à ses yeux

    Major depressive disorder (MDD) is moderately heritable, however genome-wide association studies (GWAS) for MDD, as well as for related continuous outcomes, have not shown consistent results. Attempts to elucidate the genetic basis of MDD may be hindered by heterogeneity in diagnosis. The Center for Epidemiological Studies Depression (CES-D) scale provides a widely used tool for measuring depressive symptoms clustered in four different domains which can be combined together into a total score but also can be analysed as separate symptom domains. We performed a meta-analysis of GWAS of the CES-D symptom clusters. We recruited 12 cohorts with the 20- or 10-item CES-D scale (32 528 persons). One single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP), rs713224, located near the brain-expressed melatonin receptor (MTNR1A) gene, was associated with the somatic complaints domain of depression symptoms, with borderline genome-wide significance (p discovery = 3.82 × 10-8). The SNP was analysed in an additional five cohorts comprising the replication sample (6813 persons). However, the association was not consistent among the replication sample (p discovery+replication = 1.10 × 10-6) with evidence of heterogeneity. Despite the effort to harmonize the phenotypes across cohorts and participants, our study is still underpowered to detect consistent association for depression, even by means of symptom classification. On the contrary, the SNP-based heritability and co-heritability estimation results suggest that a very minor part of the variation could be captured by GWAS, explaining the reason of sparse findings.

    Full Text Available Scholarly linking between autobiographical elements, fiction, and diversion of conventions are characteristic of Camille Laurens’work. Dans ces bras-là (2000 can be described as a search for identity by the detour of the other. Indeed, the novel is built on three dichotomous relations namely autobiography-fiction, woman-man and writing-oral language. The result is a complex and deep look at Camille Laurens’ identity: a woman, an author, but also the narrator of a narrative

    Full Text Available OBJETIVO: Describir el comportamiento de las cesáreas en México en los últimos 10 años y medir su relación con distintas variables. MATERIAL Y MÉTODOS: Estudio ecológico en el que se utilizó la base de datos de nacimientos atendidos en instituciones de salud públicas y privadas que concentra la Secretaría de Salud de México. La variable dependiente fue el tipo de atención del parto. Las variables independientes fueron el producto interno bruto per cápita, el índice de desarrollo humano, el porcentaje de analfabetismo de las mujeres, el nivel de marginación y el porcentaje de médicos especialistas, entre otras. La relación entre las variables en estudio se midió con las pruebas de correlación de Pearson y de Spearman. Con los datos de 1999 se realizó un análisis de regresión lineal múltiple para identificar las principales variables asociadas con el porcentaje de cesáreas por entidad federativa. RESULTADOS: El porcentaje de nacimientos por cesárea en el ámbito nacional se incrementó en los últimos 10 años a un ritmo ligeramente superior a 1% anual. El ritmo de crecimiento fue considerablemente mayor en la seguridad social y el sector privado. El porcentaje de cesáreas a escala nacional en 1999 fue ligeramente superior a 35%. Los valores más altos correspondieron al sector privado con 53%. Las instituciones de seguridad social presentaron un porcentaje de cesáreas de 38.2%. Las variables con valores de asociación más intensa con el porcentaje de cesáreas fueron el porcentaje de médicos que son especialistas en el estado y el producto interno bruto per cápita. DISCUSIÓN: Los resultados presentados respaldan las opiniones que defienden la implantación de políticas correctivas específicas, con el fin de impulsar un descenso en la frecuencia de cesáreas. En otros contextos se han producido descensos importantes con requisitos como la solicitud de una segunda opinión antes de realizar una cesárea, la definici

    Although the Gelidiales are economically important marine red algae producing agar and agarose, the phylogeny of this order remains poorly resolved. The present study provides a molecular phylogeny based on a novel marker, nuclear-encoded CesA, plus plastid-encoded psaA, psbA, rbcL, and mitochondria-encoded cox1 from subsets of 107 species from all ten genera within the Gelidiales. Analyses of individual and combined datasets support the monophyly of three currently recognized families, and reveal a new clade. On the basis of these results, the new family Orthogonacladiaceae is described to accommodate Aphanta and a new genus Orthogonacladia that includes species previously classified as Gelidium madagascariense and Pterocladia rectangularis. Acanthopeltis is merged with Gelidium, which has nomenclatural priority. Nuclear-encoded CesA was found to be useful for improving the resolution of phylogenetic relationships within the Gelidiales and is likely to be valuable for the inference of phylogenetic relationship among other red algal taxa.

    1982-04-01

    Seeds of mungbean variety CES 14 were treated with 10 - 3 sodium azide for 2 hours buffered at pH 3 after various pre-soaking treatment durations of 0, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14 and 16 hours. The biological parameters that were significantly affected by the treatments in the M 1 were germination, seedling height and survival. The chlorophyll and other morphological mutations in the M 2 gradually increased with increasing pre-soaking time. The treatment that had the lowest mutation rate was the 16-hour pre-soaked seeds. No chlorophyll mutation was noted in both the water and buffer control. One variant was noted, however, in the buffer control. (author)

    Screening depressivity among adolescents is a key public health priority. In order to measure the severity of depressive symptomatology, a four-dimensional 20 items scale called "Center for Epidemiological Studies-Depression Scale" (CES-D) was developed. A shorter 10-item version was developed and validated (Andresen et al.). For this brief version, several authors supported a two-factor structure - Negative and Positive affect - but the relationship between the two reversed-worded items of the Positive affect factor could be better accounted for by correlated errors. The aim of this study is triple: firstly to test a French version of the CES-D10 among adolescents; secondly to test the relevance of a one-dimensional structure by considering error correlation for Positive affect items; finally to examine the extent to which this structural model is invariant across gender. The sample was composed of 269 French middle school adolescents (139 girls and 130 boys, mean age: 13.8, SD=0.65). Confirmatory Factorial Analyses (CFA) using the LISREL 8.52 were conducted in order to assess the adjustment to the data of three factor models: a one-factor model, a two-factor model (Positive and Negative affect) and a one-factor model with specification of correlated errors between the two reverse-worded items. Then, multigroup analysis was conducted to test the scale invariance for girls and boys. Internal consistency of the CES-D10 was satisfying for the adolescent sample (α=0.75). The best fitting model is the one-factor model with correlated errors between the two items of the previous Positive affect factor (χ(2)/dl=2.50; GFI=0.939; CFI=0.894; RMSEA=0.076). This model presented a better statistical fit to the data than the one-factor model without error correlation: χ(2)(diff) (1)=22.14, pstatistic for the model with equality-constrained factor loadings was 121.31. The change in the overall Chi(2) is not statistically significant. This result implies that the model is

    Listeria monocytogenes is a food-borne pathogen that can cause a variety of illnesses ranging from gastroenteritis to life-threatening septicemia. The beta-lactam antibiotic ampicillin remains the drug of choice for the treatment of listeriosis. We have previously identified a response regulator...... of L. monocytogenes to tolerate ethanol and cell wall-acting antibiotics of the beta-lactam family. Furthermore, CesRK controls the expression of a putative extracellular peptide encoded by the orf2420 gene, located immediately downstream from cesRK. Inactivation of orf2420 revealed that it contributes...... to ethanol tolerance and pathogenesis in mice. Interestingly, we found that transcription of orf2420 was strongly induced by subinhibitory concentrations of various cell wall-acting antibiotics, ethanol, and lysozyme. The induction of orf2420 expression was abolished in the absence of CesRK. Our data suggest...

En la región del Eje Cafetero colombiano seemplean las raíces aéreas de esta especie como fi bra para elaborar canastos y artesanías.Esta actividad tiene una larga tradición en la región y se concentra en el municipiode Filandia (departamento del Quindío. En los últimos años se ha presentado unadisminución en la oferta de raíces adecuadas para la actividad artesanal en todas lasáreas donde tradicionalmente se obtiene el "tripeperro". Se evaluó el efecto de laextracción sobre la estructura de tamaños, la densidad y el rendimiento de las raíces,comparando poblaciones en áreas con extracción del recurso con poblaciones enáreas sin extracción. Los resultados indican que, aunque la extracción parece noafectar la densidad poblacional, sí tiene efectos signifi cativos sobre la estructura detamaños y, en consecuencia, sobre el rendimiento de las raíces. La disponibilidad deeste recurso en las áreas con extracción es hasta cinco o seis veces menor que en delas áreas sin extracción.

    Full Text Available Water resources play a vital role in human life and agriculture irrigation, especially for agriculture-dominant developing countries and regions. Improving agricultural water use efficiency has consequently become a key strategic choice. This study, based on Zhangye City’s economic characteristics and data, applies a static Computable General Equilibrium (CGE model with a constant elasticity of substitution (CES composited water−land resources account to assess the impact of improving agricultural water use efficiency on economy, water conservation and land reallocation. Results reveal that: Zhangye City’s GDP increases by 0.10% owing to an increasing average technical level by improving agricultural water use efficiency; total water consumption decreases by 122 million m3, 69% of which comes from a reduction of surface water use; and land demand increases by 257.43 hectares mainly due to agricultural land demands. With respect to the sectors’ output, export-oriented sectors with higher water intensities in the agricultural sectors benefit most. In contrast, land-intensive sectors contract the most, as the rental price of land rises. Therefore, agricultural water conservation technology should be introduced considering more in surface water. Furthermore, higher demand for agricultural land would reduce land availability for other sectors, thus inhibiting urbanization pace on a small scale.

In Virno’s work, for instance, this is emphasized because...... as in speech or writing but also something that performs actions?

Los resultados forman parte de una investigación mayor sobre la vivencia y el significado de la cesárea para las mujeres que pasaron por esta experiencia. Para ello se optó por una metodología cualitativa de carácter exploratorio y descriptivo. La técnica utilizada fue la entrevista en profundidad, realizada a un total de 31 mujeres, cuyas cesáreas tuvieron lugar en su primera gestación, en Montevideo y área metropolitana (Uruguay. De los resultados obtenidos, se concluye que el acompañamiento en el proceso de trabajo de parto y nacimiento es vivido por las mujeres como un factor de protección emocional ante las ansiedades que genera la experiencia de una cirugía mayor como es la cesárea. Sin embargo, para las mujeres entrevistadas, el “acompañamiento” más que continuo se caracterizó por una serie de separaciones, tanto de sus acompañantes, como de sus hijos/as, lo cual provocó ansiedad, angustia, sentimientos de ambivalencia ante el recién nacido, dificultades en el establecimiento del vínculo materno-filial, sobre todo en el puerperio inmediato.

Parmi celles-ci figure l’évaluation de l’intensité des phénomènes, tant à l’échelle spatiale que temporelle, et celle des nuisances qui réduisent la satisfaction des usages. Un inventaire des principaux groupes de végétaux concernés, considérés comme des « espèces à risque de prolifération » a été dressé après examen de divers constats recensés sur le territoire français. Ce sont notamment des macro-algues, des cyanobactéries, des phanérogames hydrophytes autochtones comme Ranunculus sp., Potamogeton sp., Myriophyllum sp., Ceratophyllum sp., Lemna sp., et des hydrophytes introduits comme Elodea sp., Lagarosiphon sp., Ludwigia sp., Myriophyllum aquaticum, certains hélophytes et deux espèces rivulaires exotiques (Fallopia japonica et Impatiens glandulifera. Leurs potentialités importantes de développement et de propagation s’expliquent par leurs stratégies biologiques, dont certaines adaptations morphologiques et physiologiques et divers moyens de multiplication végétative. Les milieux propices aux proliférations présentent des conditions environnementales particulières : fort éclairement souvent lié à une faible profondeur et à un échauffement des eaux, conditions hydrologiques stables, minéralisation moyenne à forte, niveau trophique souvent élevé. La conjonction de ces deux composantes (espèce à risque et milieu propice, crée ainsi les conditions d’une prolifération et définit des situations à risque minimal ou maximal. Ces connaissances concourent à une meilleure définition des situations de risque de prolifération et peuvent fournir des informations utiles quant aux conditions et aux limites d’application des techniques de gestion et de contrôle de ces phénomènes.

As palavras-chave utilizadas foram: “parto vaginal”, “cesárea” e “incontinência urinária”. Resultados: Os 14 estudos analisados, avaliaram a presença de IU no puerpério de parto vaginal e cesárea. Observamos que a cesárea para ter seu papel protetor no aparecimento da IU no puerpério deve ser realizada de maneira eletiva. Os distúrbios do assoalho pélvico estão fortemente ligados com idade materna, fumo, obesidade, parto de fórceps, multiparidade, episiotomia, duração da segunda fase do trabalho de parto, gravidez e constipação crônica. Conclusão: Conclui-se que a segunda fase prolongada do trabalho de parto tem papel significativo na presença da IU no puerpério em ambos modos de parto, e que a cesárea teria o seu valor protetor no desenvolvimento da IU no puerpério apenas se fosse realizada de maneira eletiva. Dos 14 artigos, apenas um estudo foi realizado na população brasileira, mostrando a importância de serem realizados mais estudos sobre IU no puerpério no Brasil

    Full Text Available Las raíces de mangle son un importante hábitat para muchas especies. Se estudió la abundancia y riqueza de moluscos y crustáceos asociadas a las raíces sumergidas de Rhizophora mangle. Las muestras fueron recolectadas entre febrero 2005 y enero 2006, en la laguna de Bocaripo, costa norte del estado Sucre, Venezuela. Se establecieron cinco estaciones en la laguna; al azar en cada estación se escogieron dos raíces de mangle, fueron introducidas en bolsas plásticas; los organismos fueron obtenidos de la raíz raspando la superficie con un cuchillo, luego fueron separados y fijados en formalina al 10% para su posterior identificación. Se recolectaron 1 092 especimenes de moluscos, distribuidos en dos clases: Bivalvia y Gastropoda. La clase Bivalvia fue la más abundante con 943 individuos. La familia más representativa fue Mytilidae con 6 especies, siendo Musculus lateralis la especie dominante. Los crustáceos estuvieron representados por 372 organismos, pertenecientes a la clase Malacostraca, donde Panopeus herbstii (169 ind. fue la especie más abundante. Las familias Panopeidae, Porcellanidae y Majidae presentaron el mayor número de especies. La máxima abundancia se encontró en febrero (224 ind. con una riqueza de 25 especies y la mínima en noviembre (45 ind. con 12. Las estaciones 1 y 5 presentaron la mayor abundancia y riqueza de organismos, lo cual pudiera estar relacionado con condiciones ambientales favorables, como la mayor disponibilidad de microhábitats y oferta alimenticia; por el contrario la estación 4, presentó un ambiente más inhóspito, debido a los altos valores en la salinidad y temperatura, lo cual contribuye con la menor abundancia y riqueza de las especies presentes.

    Se usó el método de bolsas de descomposición para estudiar la pérdida de biomasa y liberación de N, P, K, Ca y Mg desde las raíces finas (<2 mm en los sistemas agroforestales de cacao con sombras de poró y laurel. Se muestrearon bolsas a las 1, 2, 4, 6, 12, 18 y 25 semanas en las épocas seca y lluviosa. Las tasas de descomposición y liberación de nutrimentos fueron bien descritas por un modelo exponencial doble. Se observó alta relación entre las tasas de pérdida de biomasa y liberación de N de las tres especies. Las tasas de liberación de nutrimentos fueron K > Mg > P > N > Ca. Después de una semana de incubación cerca del 90% del K fue liberado mientras que el Ca tendió a la acumulación. Las raíces de poró fueron las de más rápida descomposición y liberación de nutrimentos, excepto de K. El poró sería la especie de sombra adecuada para sistemas de producción que requieran rápida recirculación de nutrimentos. El laurel exhibió tasas lentas de descomposición y liberación de nutrimentos.

Method Fifty-two of 62 male inmates of a semi-open prison (Givenich Penitentiary Centre, the only such unit in Luxembourg, and 69 LTU registered at the Luxembourg Employment Administration completed a questionnaire exploring: 1 mental health (measured by means of scales GHQ12 and CES-D; 2 employment commitment; 3 availability of a support network, self-esteem, empowerment; and 4 socio-demographic characteristics. Results Compared with LTU, inmates were younger, more had work experience (54.9% vs 26.1%, and more were educated to only a low level (71.1% vs 58.0%. The link between employment commitment and mental health in the LTU was the opposite of that seen among the prisoners: the more significant the perceived importance of employment, the worse the mental health (GHQ12 p = 0.003; CES-D p Conclusion The two groups clearly need professional support. Future research should further investigate the link between different forms of professional help and mental health. Randomized controlled trials could be carried out in both groups, with interventions to improve work commitment for prisoners and to help with getting a job for LTU. For those LTU who value employment but cannot find it, the best help may be psychological support.

    Full Text Available O Brasil está entre os países com as mais elevadas taxas de cesárea, sobretudo na saúde suplementar. No entanto, tanto no setor público, como no privado, algumas características são semelhantes para os anseios e expectativas das gestantes em relação ao parto. Existe preferência para o parto vaginal entre as mulheres de todos os níveis social, econômico ou cultural, o que desloca o foco da influência negativa da mulher para os outros sujeitos envolvidos na assistência ao parto. Nenhum fator isoladamente é capaz de justificar a complexidade da decisão pelo parto por cesárea, porém o médico e o tipo de hospital são os maiores fatores associados. Os diversos efeitos prejudiciais da realização não criteriosa de parto cesárea são cientificamente comprovados. É fundamental a conscientização de médicos e demais profissionais sobre as consequências reais dessa decisão, os desvios éticos quando condutas são tomadas sem que o foco seja exclusivamente a saúde do paciente e a necessidade de capacitação e atualização constantes para o manejo das diversas situações possíveis para o nascimento.Brazil is among the countries with the highest cesarean section rates, especially in the supplementary health sector. However, some characteristics are similar in both the public and private sectors in terms of the wishes and expectations of pregnant women regarding their delivery. There is a preference for vaginal delivery among women of all social, economic, and cultural levels, a fact that shifts the focus of the negative influence of this variable from women to other subjects involved in delivery care. No isolated factor is able to justify the complexity of making a decision for cesarean section, but the physician and the type of hospital are the main associated factors. The several harmful effects of a non-judicious performance of cesarean section are scientifically recognized. It is important to raise the awareness of doctors

    Full Text Available La laguna de La Mancha está conectada al Golfo de México a través de una boca estuarina efímera, una barra arenosa, la cual se abre durante la época de lluvias y se cierra durante el otoño y la temporada de vientos invernales. Cuando la laguna se llena con la entrada de agua proveniente de un arroyo permanente, ubicado en la parte sur, el nivel del agua se incrementa y la barra arenosa se abre, descargando grandes volúmenes de agua hacia el océano y dejando expuesta a la desecación la zona intermareal previamente inundada. En este estudio, se describen las variaciones espacio-temporales de la estructura y composición de la comunidad de epibiontes que vive en la superficie de las raíces del mangle rojo,y su relación con la dinámica hidrológica de la boca estuarina. Se recolectaron cuatro raíces trimestralmente, durante un año, en diez estaciones de muestreo. También se midió la temperatura del agua, salinidad, oxígeno disuelto, profundidad y transparencia en cada muestreo. Se determinó la abundancia, la biomasa y la riqueza específica, a lo largo de las raíces en segmentos verticales de 10cm llamados horizontes. Se registraron un total de 59 632 especímenes y una biomasa total de 172g/cm2, y un máximo de once horizontes presentaron al menos una especie de epibionte. Se identificaron dos especies de poliquetos, 12 de moluscos y 14 de crustáceos, siendo Mytilopsis leucophaeata la más abundante, Ficopomatus miamiensis la más común y Crassostrea rhizophorae la de mayor contribución a la biomasa. Se evaluó la eficiencia del muestreo mediante curvas de acumulación de especies, resultando que la eficiencia fue, en general, >90% de la riqueza estimada por modelos asintóticos. La hidrodinámica de la boca estuarina tuvo gran influencia en las condiciones ambientales de la laguna y en las variaciones espacio-temporales de la comunidad de epibiontes: (a cuando la boca estuarina está cerrada son más claros los gradientes

    Full Text Available Araucaria araucana (Molina K. Koch is a conifer distributed in the Andean-Patagonian forests in the south of Argentina and Chile. The main objective of this work was to relate the different root classes appearing in A. araucana to mycorrhizal behavior. Samples were collected in three different sites in the Lanín National Park (NW Patagonia, Argentina. Two different root classes were present in A. araucana: longitudinal fine roots (LFR and globular short roots (GSR. Both had extensive mycorrhizal arbuscular symbiosis (AM and presented abundant hyphae and coils in root cells, a characteristic of the anatomical Paris-type. Dark septate fungal endophytes were also observed. Values of total AM colonization were high, with similar partial AM% values for each root class. Seasonal differences were found for total and partial colonization, with higher values in spring compared to autumn. Regarding the percentage of fungal structures between root classes, values were similar for vesicles and arbuscules, but higher coil percentages were observed in GSR compared to LFR. The percentages of vesicles increased in autumn, whereas the arbuscule percentages increased in spring, coinciding with the plant growth peak. Results show that both root classes of A. araucana in Andean-Patagonian forests are associated with AM fungi, which may have ecological relevance in terms of the importance of this symbiosis, in response to soil nutrient-deficiencies, especially high P-retention.La conífera Araucaria araucana (Molina K.

    Full Text Available Depuis quelques années, la grenouille taureau (Rana catesbeiana est signalée en France dans une zone limitée de gravières près de Bordeaux. Elle est aussi présente depuis peu aux Pays-Bas et, dans les deux cas, la reproduction est effective. Cette espèce existe déjà en Europe depuis les années 30, à la suite d'introductions volontaires en Italie, sans pour cela avoir été signalée dans la partie ouest. La grenouille taureau est la plus grande des espèces nord-américaines et est considérée comme un prédateur éclectique. De ce fait, elle peut présenter un danger pour d'autres animaux, en particulier les grenouilles autochtones. Mais aucune donnée ne permet d'estimer cet éventuel impact en France et les données de la littérature ont souvent surestimé ce dernier. Par précaution, des mesures pourraient être prises pour réduire les populations actuelles présentes dans une aire pour le moment limitée. Les importations de grenouilles vivantes pour la consommation humaine, surtout à partir des pays du sud de l'Europe, sont l'occasion d'introductions de nouveaux taxons. Mais ces grenouilles font partie du même complexe et sont proches sur le plan morphologique, biologique et écologique. Les risques potentiels pour les populations locales sont les introductions de gènes, mais en ce qui concerne un éventuel avantage compétitif aucune donnée ne permet de conclure.

    Niels Mulder

    2012-11-01

    Full Text Available This essay is an exercise in the histoire des mentalités that traces the evolution of the characteristic ethos in relation to State and nation in the Philippines. Whereas State-propagated nationalism and associated rituals are inescapably present, these fail to evoke the sense of belonging to a shared civil world. It seems as if the public sphere of the State and the private sphere of everyday life do not articulate, which is practically enhanced by the systematic exclusion of the ordinary citizen from the oligarchic political process. As it is often expected that a civil society rooted in the emerging middle classes has the potential of bridging the gap and of providing the cultural leadership that moulds the nation, the evolution of their members’ ideas, from militant idealism to current self-centred morality, will be brought into focus against the dynamics of the political economy and of a culture that is increasingly divorced from the practice of everyday life.Cet essai relève de « l’histoire des mentalités » et trace l’évolution du génie spécifique liant l’état et la nation aux Philippines. Tout en étant bien présents, le nationalisme diffusé par l’état et les rituels associés sont incapables de renvoyer à un sentiment d’appartenance à un monde civil partagé. Tout se passe comme si la sphère publique de l’état et la sphère privée de la vie quotidienne n’étaient pas coordonnées, ce qui – en pratique – est renforcé par l’exclusion systématique du citoyen ordinaire d’un processus politique de type oligarchique. Comme il est souvent attendu qu’une société civile enracinée dans les classes moyennes émergentes ait le potentiel de combler l’écart et de produire le leadership culturel modelant la nation, l’évolution des idées des membres de celle-ci – d’un idéalisme militant à l’actuelle moralité nombriliste – sera mise au grand jour, à l’opposé de la dynamique de l’économie politique ainsi que d’une culture de plus en plus séparée de la vie quotidienne.

  1. La metaphore est-elle la marque de l’insuffisance de l’esprit?

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Isabelle Oliveira

    2010-01-01

    Full Text Available L’une des caractéristiques les plus communément reconnues à la discipline de la terminologie est sa conceptualité. Au contraire de l’opinion émise sur la métaphore, la terminologie s’efforce de travailler à partir de notions précises dont le sens doit être délimité et l’articulation à d’autres notions explicitée afin de bannir les ambiguïtés et les fausses évidences qu’elles véhiculent. Elle se distingue aussi du texte poétique caractérisé en particulier par la richesse des images et le jeu sur les signifiants. On comprend dès lors pourquoi la métaphore apparaît de prime abord comme une ennemie du champ de la terminologie qu’il faudrait bannir à tout prix. Cette figure de rhétorique consistant en un transport de sens risque à tout moment de rendre inopérant l’effort d’univocité et de rigueur du travail du terminologue. Mais la métaphore n’est pourtant pas absente des textes de spécialité. Il faut dès lors se demander si cette présence est « accidentelle”, contingente, ou si elle est incontournable et signifiante. Pour cela, il nous faudra étudier à la fois la place de la métaphore dans le texte de spécialité, et le discours des scientifiques portant sur elle. Mais une telle démarche nous laisse prisonnier de la dichotomie entre concept et métaphore et masque peutêtre une parenté inaperçue entre eux. Si le concept est habité par la métaphore, qu’en est-il du discours de spécialité? N’est-il pas réduit à n’être qu’un vaste poème qui ne s’avouerait pas comme tel? Est-elle seulement une figure de style ou aurait-elle un impact qui outrepasseraitsa modeste fonction discursive ? Il semble bien, même si le débat sur la métaphore et son usage est loin d’être clos. Notre théorie s’inscrit plutôt dans le sens d’une réévaluation du sens, d’une extension toujours plus grande de l’impact de ce trope qui, plus qu’une simple finalité esthétique, aurait une visée pratique et heuristique.

    As of June 30, 2008, AREVA's backlog stood at 38.1 billion euro, for 13.6% growth since June 30, 2007, with 9.9% growth in Nuclear and 40.7% growth in Transmission and Distribution. In Nuclear, the backlog came to 32.3 billion euro as of the end of June 2008. In the front end of the cycle, AREVA signed multi-year contracts in the first half of the year with Japanese and American utilities and with EDF, for a combined total of more than 1 billion euro. Of note in the back end of the cycle is the contract AREVA signed with the U.S. Department of Energy to build a MOX fuel fabrication facility. In Transmission and Distribution, the backlog came to 5.8 billion euro as of the end of period. A total of 3.2 billion euro in orders was booked in the first half, an increase of 20.0% year-on-year. The division won several important contracts, most notably a contract with Dubai Electricity (more than 130 million euro), a contract with National Grid and RTE for the renovation of the IFA 2000 grid interconnection between France and Great Britain (more than 60 million euro), and, in the industrial field, a contract with Rio Tinto Alcan (close to 65 million euro). The group cleared revenue of 6.2 billion euro in the first half of 2008, up 14.8% (+16.4% like-for-like) compared with the first half of 2007. Sales outside France were up 14.3% to 4.2 billion euro or 68.6% of total sales; the latter were stable compared with the first half of 2007. All businesses were up, with growth of 15.9% in Nuclear operations (+19.1% LFL1) - particularly in Reactors and Services (+31.3% LFL1) - and 13.0% growth in Transmission and Distribution operations (+12.0% LFL T 1). Foreign exchange had a negative impact of 155 million euro, primarily due to the change in the U.S. dollar in relation to the euro. Changes in the consolidated group had a positive impact of 97 million euro, mainly reflecting acquisitions in the Transmission and Distribution division and in Renewable Energies. Sales revenue for the 2. quarter of 2008 rose to 3.4 billion euro, for growth of 17.1% (+18.0% like-for-like) compared with the 2. quarter of 2007. Foreign exchange had a negative impact of 85 million euro and changes in consolidation had a positive impact of 79 million euro. The Nuclear divisions were up 16.6% (+19.4% LFL1) and the Transmission and Distribution division was up 17.8% (+15.6% LFL1). For 2008, the AREVA group confirms all of its expectations, including strong growth in backlog and in sales revenue.

    Mineral raw materials come from fossil reserves or ores resulting from the geologic and climatic history of the Earth. The access to economic development for 80% of the worldwide population and the high rate of demographic growth (probably 8 billions of inhabitants in 2025) are important factors that can greatly multiply the worldwide consumption of ores. In parallel, environmental concerns and the increasing need for a better equilibrium between wildlife preservation and the supply of economic needs, lead to a more reasonable and mastered use of natural resources. The aim of this book is to shade light and give global elements of thoughts on mineral resources, and for the main of those (about 30 metals and mineral substances), to review the most useful data and references about their production and consumption. For each question, chapters are devoted to the situation of France in its worldwide context. One chapter concerns the uranium ores (reserves, production, prices evolution, consumption, economic flux and companies involved). (J.S.).

La versión breve de la Escala de Depresión del Centro de Estudios Epidemiológicos (CESD) es un recurso factible para la tamización de los síntomas de depresión en la población general, pero no se ha reportado la prevalencia en la población indígena, ni su invarianza factorial en Latinoamérica.Objetivo. Describir la prevalencia de los síntomas de depresión y la invarianza factorial de la versión breve de la escala CES-D en población indígena mexicana.Materiales y métodos. Se hizo un estudio transversal en una muestra representativa de 37.165 adultos mexicanos de 20 a 59 años de edad. La identidad indígena se determinó mediante el propio reporte de la persona como hablante de una lengua indígena. Se conformaron ocho grupos de análisis según el sexo, el alfabetismo y el ser indígena. Se describió la prevalencia de los síntomas depresivos en cada grupo, así como la invarianza factorial de la configuración de los perfiles mediante un análisis factorial exploratorio. Las matrices de varianza y covarianza se compararon entre pares de perfiles usando el test modificado de Mantel.Resultados. La prevalencia de síntomas depresivos en mujeres indígenas que sabían leer fue de 16,8 % (IC95%: 13,4-20,3); en mujeres indígenas que no sabían leer, de 21,3 % (IC95%: 15,5-27,1); en hombres indígenas que sabían leer de 8,5 % (IC95%: 6,0-11,1), y en hombres indígenas que no sabían leer de 10,4 % (IC95%: 5,2-15,6). No se encontraron diferencias significativas en las cargas factoriales entre los perfiles.Conclusión. Se reportó una menor prevalencia de síntomas depresivos en indígenas que en la población no indígena. La escala CES-D en su versión breve mostró invarianza factorial al emplearla en la población indígena.

    Full Text Available OBJECTIVE: To correlate international official data on Cesarean delivery rates to infant and maternal mortality rates and low weight-at-birth rates; and to test the hypothesis that Cesarean rates greater than 15% correlate to higher maternal and infant mortality rates. METHODS: Analyses were based on the most recent official data (2000-2009 available for 193 countries. Exponential models were compared to quadratic models to regress infant mortality rates, neonatal mortality rates, maternal mortality rates, and low weight-at-birth rates to Cesarean rates. Separate regressions were performed for countries with Cesarean rates greater than 15%. RESULTS: In countries with Cesarean rates less than 15%, higher Cesarean rates were associated to lower infant, neonatal, and maternal mortality rates, and to lower rates of low weightat-birth. In countries with Cesarean rates greater than 15%, Cesarean rates were not significantly associated with infant or maternal mortality rates. CONCLUSIONS: There is an inverse exponential relation between countries' rates of Cesarean deliveries and infant or maternal mortality rates. Very low Cesarean rates (less than 15% are associated with poorer maternal and child outcomes. Cesarean rates greater than 15% were neither correlated to higher maternal nor child mortality, nor to low weight-at-birth.OBJETIVO: Correlacionar los datos oficiales internacionales sobre las tasas de parto por cesárea con las tasas de mortalidad materna e infantil y con la tasa de bajo peso al nacer, y someter a prueba la hipótesis que sostiene que una tasa de cesáreas mayor de 15% se correlaciona con tasas de mortalidad materna e infantil más elevadas. MÉTODOS: Los análisis se basaron en los datos oficiales más recientes disponibles (2000-2009 de 193 países.

Para este fin se midió la emisión de CO2 del suelo durante un año, en 10 parcelas con una cámara de respiración de suelo conectada a un analizador de gases infrarrojo.

La respiración de las raíces representó casi la mitad de la respiración total en ambos tipos de bosque. La variación estacional de la respiración total estuvo asociada principalmente a las diferencias de humedad del suelo. Los resultados sugieren que desde el suelo de los bosques tropicales se emiten cantidades considerables de carbono hacia la atmósfera, y que factores ambientales como la humedad y la temperatura del suelo, ejercen un control importante sobre las tasas de emisión. De este modo, un incremento en la emisión de CO2 desde los suelos de estos ecosistemas, en respuesta a los cambios ambientales, puede tener grandes implicaciones en el balance global del carbono.Soils are the largest carbon pool of terrestrial ecosystems as well as the largest source of atmospheric CO2 through a process called soil respiration.

Conforme disminuyó la altitud de las zonas de siembra, también disminuyó la concentración de los metabolitos analizados. La concentración de los fenilpropanoides y del equinacósido (sintetizado exclusivamente por E. angustifolia producidos en Costa Rica, fue 100 y 34% mayor, respectivamente, que la concentración reportada para una muestra control proveniente de EE.UU. Las alcamidas se produjeron en un rango de 0,89-2,31% comparado con 0,004-0,36% reportado en EE.UU. En Costa Rica la presencia de alcamidas fue similar para las 3 zonas en estudio. Sin embargo, 2 de ellas presentaron un grado de isomerismo diferente al reportado en muestras de EE.UU. Estos resultados indican que en condiciones tropicales, no solo se puede producir Echinacea en un menor tiempo, sino también que las cantidades de metabolitos secundarios son mayores a las producidas por la planta en sus áreas de origen. La presencia de compuestos con diferente grado de isomerismo podría presentar nuevas alternativas de uso de esos metabolitos.

On souhaite ainsi rappeler aux chercheurs combien il est important de publier les pièces retrouvées avec le maximum de précision, dans les dessins et les mesures. En conclusion, pour les araires à soc à douille, de nombreuses incertitudes demeurent, sauf pour les socs de petites surfaces utiles, qui sont généralement des araires manche-sep. Pour les araires à reille, la reconstruction des instruments semble accessible, y compris la longueur du timon de traction ou chambige. Quelques exemples concrets de reconstitution sont présentés, dont un araire tourne-oreille.Metallic pieces of tilling implements from Roman Gaul, are practically the only archaeological elements at our disposal to reconstruct the tools.

    Recently FDA-approved fluoroquinolones like gatifloxacin possess enhanced activity against Gram-positive pathogens such as Streptococcus pneumoniae. However, experience with adverse events among previously used fluoroquinolones has led to expanded post-marketing investigations of clinical efficacy and safety. An open-label gatifloxacin trial was initiated in early 2000, using 2795 (>15000 enrolled cases) primary care providers for treatment of community-acquired respiratory tract infections (CARTI) such as community-acquired pneumonia (CAP), acute bacterial exacerbation of chronic bronchitis (ABECB), acute sinusitis. Microbiology specimens and sputum slides were referred to a reference laboratory, pathogens identified and reference antimicrobial susceptibility tests performed. Results were classified by infection site, geographic census region and patient profile/demographics. The most frequent pathogens were: for CAP (n = 384)-S. pneumoniae (37%) > Hemophilus influenzae (31%) > Moraxella catarrhalis (13%); for ABECB (528)-H. influenzae (37%) > M. catarrhalis (26%) > S. pneumoniae (17%); and for sinusitis (2691)-M. catarrhalis (29%) > H. influenzae (24%) > S. pneumoniae (17%). H. parainfluenzae (ABECB) and S. aureus (sinusitis) were also commonly isolated. CAP S. pneumoniae isolates had significantly less high-level resistance (5% at > or =2 micro g/ml) than those isolates from ABECB or sinusitis (13-15%). United States census zone differences in S. pneumoniae resistance were identified (greatest in West or East South Central, South Atlantic). S. pneumoniae macrolide resistance was high (23-33%) and H. influenzae clarithromycin susceptibility was only 56-62%. beta-lactamase rates in H. influenzae and M. catarrhalis were 21-29% and 88-92%, respectively. Only one S. pneumoniae was not susceptible to gatifloxacin, and this new fluoroquinolone was fourfold more potent than levofloxacin (MIC(50,) 0.25 vs. 1 micro g/ml).

    Full Text Available OBJECTIVE: To describe the patterns of deliveries in a birth cohort and to compare vaginal and cesarean section deliveries. METHODS: All children born to mothers from the urban area of Pelotas, Brazil, in 2004, were recruited for a birth cohort study. Mothers were contacted and interviewed during their hospital stay when extensive information on the gestation, the birth and the newborn, along with maternal health history and family characteristics was collected. Maternal characteristics and childbirth care financing - either private or public healthcare (SUS patients - were the main factors investigated along with a description of C-sections distribution according to day of the week and delivery time. Standard descriptive techniques, Χ² tests for comparing proportions and Poisson regression to explore the independent effect of C-section predictors were the methods used. RESULTS: The overall C-section rate was 45%, 36% among SUS and 81% among private patients, where 35% of C-sections were reported elective. C-sections were more frequent on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, reducing by about a third on Sundays, while normal deliveries had a uniform distribution along the week. Delivery time for C-sections was markedly different among public and private patients. Maternal schooling was positively associated with C-section among SUS patients, but not among private patients. CONCLUSIONS: C-sections were almost universal among the wealthier mothers, and strongly related to maternal education among SUS patients. The patterns we describe are compatible with the idea that C-sections are largely done to suit the doctor's schedule. Drastic action is called for to change the current situation.OBJETIVO: Describir el padrón de los partos en una cohorte de nacimientos, comparando partos normales y cesáreos.

    POWEO, an electricity and gas alternative operator in France, presents in this document its key business indicators for the third quarter of 2007. POWEO recorded another strong increase in revenue in the third quarter of 2007, up 63% year-on-year to euro 77.0 million. As a result, revenue year-to-date increased to euro 233.2 million, up 40% compared with the first 9 months of 2006. Active customer sites reached 87,815 at September 30, 2007, up from 86,200 at June 30, 2007. As of September 30, 2007, this number breaks down into 80,257 electricity sites, of which 78,921 for professional customers and 1,336 for residential customers, and 7,558 gas sites, of which 7,313 for professional customers and 245 for residential customers. Since October 1, 2007, 3,224 new residential customer sites have confirmed their subscription to one of POWEO's gas or electricity offers, which means that as at December 1, 2007, more than 4,500 customers will have changed suppliers since the liberalization of the residential market on July 1 of this year. Contracts signed before the summer with several large accounts in the private and public sectors started to generate revenue in the third quarter. Over 130 GWh of electricity was supplied under these contracts. In application of POWEO's tariff pegging clause, the rise in regulated tariffs decided in August by the French authorities was passed on to the company's customers. This led to a very moderate increase in their energy bills of around 1% on average. The upturn in forward electricity prices seen since September resulted in a euro 1.4 million marked-to-market adjustment to the value of the forward contracts and options held in the Energy Management portfolio. On the other hand, the settlement of certain contracts before the price upturn resulted in realised losses of euro 2.3 million. The rise in market prices has accelerated since the end of the third quarter in the wake of the increase in prices for coal and gas. Were prices to hold at current levels until the end of the year, this would have a substantial positive impact of the value of the Energy Management portfolio. On November 9, 2007, POWEO inaugurated the Boulay wind energy plant in the Moselle Department. This 10 MW power plant is equipped with four Nordex wind turbines of 2.5 MW each. Wind potential is estimated at 2,040 hours a year, electricity production is therefore expected to reach 20,400 MWh per year, enough for the needs of a population of over 19,000. The construction of this wind farm, which started in April 2007, was overseen entirely by Nordex. The wind turbines have been undergoing tests since September 7 and already produce electricity that is supplied to the power grid (39,050 kWh in September). POWEO's customer service was voted 'Best Customer Service 2008' in the 'Gas and Electricity Supplier' category, obtaining the highest score in all sectors of activity. The survey by Ifop and Viseo Conseil tested customer service in seven major sectors of activity by reference to 16 criteria that included accessibility, responsiveness, call customization, friendliness and suitability of the answer to the customer's demand. After price, service quality is now the second criterion influencing a buy decision and customer loyalty. POWEO has therefore made quality assurance in its customer relations a priority. With all its call centres which are based in France, and a call access rate of 95% that is unmatched in the market, POWEO can guarantee that the processing of customer requests (sign-up and after sales services) will be carried out in the best conditions in terms of availability, rapidity and reliability. POWEO must still contend with the psychological blockage associated to the principle of irreversibility. Under the bill voted by the Senate at the start of October, residential customers would be allowed to revert to regulated tariffs upon moving to a new residence. This partial reversibility, which still has to be approved by the National Assembly, would mark an extremely favourable development since it would avoid conflicts between an owner and tenant regarding the supply of energy to a given property. However, POWEO as well as the main French consumer groups have been claiming for the implementation of a full reversibility for residential customers in order to improve consumers protection within the context of an increasing competition. France now stands as the only member of the European Community to have a regulated tariff scheme but not to allow reversibility. This prevents end-users from benefiting from competitive and innovative offerings that would improve their purchasing power and energy efficiency. The draft bill for the development of competition to the service of consumers, to be discussed by the National Assembly at the end of November, could be an occasion to implement the full reversibility right for consumers. Meanwhile, POWEO is working on a marketing strategy adapted to future regulatory changes, supported by a strong brand awareness strengthened by recent communication actions (41% in prompted awareness among core customer target at mid-October, against 34% at August-end). Finally, France's national competition body is shortly to issue its conclusions regarding a scheme for supplying alternative suppliers with electricity produced by nuclear power plants, in order to develop offers available to residential customers. The adoption of such a scheme would constitute an extremely favourable extension of the capacity swap agreement already entered into by POWEO and EDF (see press release of January 3, 2007). Given recent business trends, and provided that electricity market prices hold at their current level, POWEO considers that it should reach easily its target for full-year 2007 revenue as reassessed in September, i.e. euro 335 million.

    Full Text Available CONTEXT AND OBJECTIVE There is uncertainty in the literature regarding the theory that obstetric events and pelvic floor injuries give rise to lower risk of subsequent urinary incontinence among women delivering via cesarean section than among women delivering vaginally. The objective of this study was to assess the two-year postpartum prevalence of urinary incontinence and pelvic floor muscle dysfunction and the factors responsible for them. DESIGN AND SETTING Cross-sectional study, conducted in a public university. METHODS 220 women who had undergone elective cesarean section or vaginal childbirth two years earlier were selected. Their urinary incontinence symptoms were investigated, and their pelvic floor muscle dysfunction was assessed using digital palpation and a perineometer. RESULTS The two-year urinary incontinence prevalences following vaginal childbirth and cesarean section were 17% and 18.9%, respectively. The only risk factor for pelvic floor muscle dysfunction was weight gain during pregnancy. Body mass index less than 25 kg/m 2 and normal pelvic floor muscle function protected against urinary incontinence. Gestational urinary incontinence increased the risk of two-year postpartum urinary incontinence. CONCLUSION Gestational urinary incontinence was a crucial precursor of postpartum urinary incontinence. Weight gain during pregnancy increased the subsequent risk of pelvic floor muscle dysfunction, and elective cesarean section did not prevent urinary incontinence. CONTEXTO E OBJETIVO É ainda controversa na literatura a teoria de que eventos obstétricos e traumas no assoalho pélvico representariam menor risco para mulheres submetidas ao parto cesárea do que para aquelas submetidas a parto vaginal, no tocante a subsequente incontinência urinária. O objetivo do estudo foi avaliar a prevalência de incontinência urinária e disfunção muscular do assoalho pélvico dois anos após o parto e os fatores responsáveis por elas

    Full Text Available Low nutrient availability, especially phosphorus (P and nitrogen (N supply is the major limitation to forage production in acid infertile soils of the tropics. A field study was conducted at the farm ‘La Esperanza’ located in Mondomo, Department of Cauca, in the coffee growing zone of Colombia. The main objective was to determine differences in root distribution, nutrient (N, P, K, Ca, Mg and S acquisition and nutrient utilization of one C4 forage grass (Brachiaria dictyoneura and two C3 forage legumes (Arachis pintoi and Centrosema macrocarpum grown under two fertilization levels, cultivated either in monoculture or in association and harvested at four different ages.There were no significant differences in root biomass among the grass and legumes and their combinations. The native vegetation had the lowest root biomass; while the introduced grass (B. dictyoneura had the highest root length density among all materials at all depths and ages and the native vegetation had the highest specific root length. As expected, nutrient uptake increased with age and with high fertilization in all species. Centrosema macrocarpun had the highest N and Ca uptake among all plant materials tested. Uptake of P, K and Mg was greater in the grass B. dictyoneura than in the other plant species and combination planting at all ages. On the other hand, the grass had the lowest Ca uptake.

    Full Text Available De nombreux milieux aquatiques de nature et d’usages divers sont plus ou moins régulièrement le siège de proliférations végétales. Le contrôle de celles-ci pose des difficultés, principalement liées à l’appréciation des déséquilibres induits dans le milieu et à celle des nuisances anthropiques qui en découlent. En effet, dans le cas d’un constat de prolifération, source et témoin d’un dysfonctionnement, le manque d’analyse objective des situations, les limites de compatibilité des différents usages du milieu, la mauvaise connaissance des végétaux en cause et du fonctionnement écologique des milieux sont autant de freins à une gestion cohérente de ces sites. La présentation de quelques exemples, à travers différents modes connus de gestion des milieux et de régulation des peuplements végétaux (notamment les méthodes mécaniques, chimiques ou biologiques, illustre la mise à profit des connaissances sur les caractéristiques biologiques et écologiques des macrophytes proliférants. La mise en Oeuvre de cette démarche devrait permettre à l’avenir de mieux évaluer les perturbations induites par les proliférations, d’intervenir si nécessaire dans de meilleures conditions, en vue d’envisager une restauration des écosystèmes concernés compatible avec une meilleure satisfaction des différents usages.

    Full Text Available No final do século XIX a administração surge como profissão, no Brasil somente na década de 40 iniciam-se os primeiros cursos. Em voga na nação brasileira pelos os altos salários torna cada vez mais importante a discussão sobre o currículo do administrador. Essa conjuntura contribuiu para o escopo deste artigo, verificar as semelhanças e a adequação a realidade local das matrizes curriculares dos cursos superiores de administração oferecidos por instituições federais na Zona da Mata Mineira. Como uma abordagem teórica fez-se um apanhado histórico dos ciclos dos currículos de administração, sob a luz de autores como Andrade e AMBRONI, culminando em uma análise da legislação vigente. Para tal objetivo, utilizou-se uma abordagem quantitativa e qualitativa, através análise de frequência das cargas horárias dedicadas a cada eixo de competência de acordo com a Resolução CNE/CES n° 4, de 13 de julho de 2005, nos cursos estudados. Os resultados apontaram a presença de grades excessivamente distintas e, em alguns casos, não se preocupando em atender a necessidade local.

El objetivo de este relato fue mostrar la conducta anestésica para operación en cesárea en una embarazada con hipoplasia de aorta distal, bien debajo de la emergencia de las arterias renales, con estenosis de la arteria renal y falta de arterias ilíacas. RELATO DEL CASO: Paciente de 30 años, 54 kg, en el 2° embarazo con una cesárea anterior sin intercurrencias. Durante la realización de ecografía de gestación en la 12ª semana se observó una interrupción de la aorta bien debajo de la salida de las arterias renales. A la paciente se le realizó cineangiocoronariografía que mostró hipoplasia de la aorta distal por debajo de las arterias renales, con ausencia de las arterias ilíacas. Durante la investigación clínica la paciente se mostró asintomática, con excepción de hipertensión arterial y claudicación a los grandes esfuerzos. La paciente fue sometida a la anestesia peridural continua, con titulación de la dosis anestésica necesaria para la realización de la cesárea. Inicialmente se inyectaron 50 mg de bupivacaína a 0,5% sin vasoconstrictor y 10 µg de sufentanil. Quince minutos después, la anestesia fue complementada con 25 mg más de bupivacaína a 0,5%, lo que fue suficiente para alcanzar un adecuado nivel de bloqueo. La cesárea transcurrió sin intercurrencias y el niño nació en buenas condiciones clínicas. CONCLUSIONES: El uso de anestesia peridural continua con dosis fraccionadas demostró ser una técnica anestésica segura para la realización de este procedimiento por reducir los riesgos de hipotensión arterial materna inherente al bloqueo espinal y también por minimizar la transferencia placentaria de fármacos que ocurren cuando se usa la anestesia general.

RELATO DEL CASO: Paciente de 24 años, portadora de anemia microcítica, enfermedad de von Willebrand y HIV, llegó a la emergencia obstétrica en inicio de trabajo de alumbramiento. No realizó prenatal. Fue indicada cesárea a fin de disminuir los riesgos de transmisión vertical en paciente con carga vírica de HIV desconocida. Presentaba hematomas por el cuerpo e historia de hematoma de pared abdominal en cesárea anterior. Los tests de coagulación estaban un poco alterados. Después de infusión de concentrado de factor VIII fue realizada anestesia general. Madre y recién nacido presentaron evolución satisfactoria. CONCLUSIONES: La evaluación de manifestaciones clínicas en pacientes con coagulopatia es fundamental en la decisión del tipo de anestesia que será indicada para cada paciente. La evaluación debe ser individualizada, considerando los riesgos y beneficios de la técnica escogida. En estas pacientes, se debe siempre restringir al máximo la indicación de interrupción de la gestación por vía alta, optándose siempre por los métodos menos invasivos.

      caracterizada por hipertrofia del septo ventricular y grado variable de estenosis aórtica subvalvar. En esa enfermedad, el aumento de la contratilidad del miocardio y la disminución de la resistencia vascular periférica pueden agravar la obstrucción de la vía de salida del VE, produciendo arritmia e isquemia cardiaca. Este relato quiso discutir el manoseo anestésico para cesárea en paciente con CHF. RELATO DEL CASO: Paciente con 33 semanas de embarazo y diagnóstico previo de CHF presentó en el holter de 24 horas 22 episodios de taquicardia ventricular no sustentada (TVNS y 2 episodios de taquicardia ventricular sustentada (TVS. Refería episodios de palpitación, disnea y dolor precordial de corta duración. La paciente fue medicada con atenolol y presentó control de los síntomas y de las arritmias cardiacas. Con 38 semanas y 5 días de embarazo la paciente fue sometida a la cesárea electiva. Además de la habitual monitorización contó con el análisis de segmento ST y presión arterial invasiva. Se utilizó anestesia intradural-epidural con inyección de 5 µg de sunfentanil en la raqui seguida de administración de bupivacaína a 0,375% en dosis de incremento hasta alcanzar una altura de T6 (total de 16 mL. Se usó metaraminol como vasopresor. No hubo hipotensión arterial materna u otras complicaciones en el perioperatorio. CONCLUSIONES: La anestesia general se usa con frecuencia para cesáreas de pacientes con CHF. La anestesia intradural-epidural con instalación lenta del bloqueo fue una alternativa segura. En esas pacientes, el aumento de la contratilidad miocárdica debe ser evitado, y si fuere necesario se debe utilizar un a-agonista para la corrección de hipotensión arterial materna.BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Familiar Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (FHC is a rare hereditary cardiac disorder characterized by hypertrophy of the ventricular septum and variable degrees of subvalvular aortic stenosis.

      Full Text Available Este estudo analisa as diferentes representações e experiências quanto ao parto vaginal e cesárea de mulheres de diferentes estratos sócio-econômicos, bem como a natureza das relações profissionais de saúde/usuárias no contexto institucional em que estão inseridas. A pesquisa de natureza qualitativa foi desenvolvida em três maternidades do Município do Rio de Janeiro, Brasil, sendo uma pública, uma conveniada com o SUS e uma particular, com mulheres que tiveram os dois tipos de parto. Os resultados revelam que o modelo de organização dos serviços público e privado apresentam variações que produzem diferentes tipos de assistência e de relação entre os profissionais de saúde e as usuárias, dando forma a experiências distintas entre as mulheres pesquisadas. Todavia, ao empreendermos uma crítica assentada nas relações de gênero, podemos verificar que o modelo de assistência ao parto permanece submetendo quem deve ser sujeito e reproduzindo o projeto da medicalização - mesmo que este processo se manifeste de formas diferenciadas entre os grupos estudados -, o que reduz o campo da assistência e inviabiliza um lugar de poder diferenciado das usuárias.This study analyzes the different representations and experiences of women from different social classes, including issues related to their relations with hospital staff in different institutional settings. This qualitative study focused on women who had experienced both types of delivery, in three maternity hospitals in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (one public, one fully private, and another private under an outsourcing agreement with the public health system. The study showed that variations in public and private service models result in different types of delivery care and different relations with staff, and are reflected in different birthing experiences for the women.

In this work, the response of two Argiudoll soils (one with more than 100 years of agriculture and the other, a virgin one to biosolid incorporation was studied under laboratory conditions. To measure this response, soil enzymatic biodescriptors, such as dehydrogenase and urease activities, and tests related to plant physiology (the root elongation test were employed. The addition of the biosolid to both soils had a stimulating effect though different on each soil according to the added dose. Adjustment of the regression line for dehydrogenase activity with root elongation was positive and statistically significant (pLa incorporación de biosólidos al suelo es una estrategia que tiene como objetivo la reubicación de estos materiales en el ambiente con un fin útil, como es la fertilización del suelo.

      First quarter 2008 revenue was up 12.1% year-on-year, to 2.769 billion euros. Like-for-like (at constant exchange rates and consolidation scope), growth came to 14.5%. Foreign exchange had a negative impact of 2.5%, or -69 million euros, mainly due to currency translation tied to the US dollar drop compared with the euro. The consolidation scope had a positive impact of +0.7% or 18 million euros, chiefly as a result of the consolidation of VEI Distribution (specializing in medium voltage distribution) and Passoni and Villa (world leader in the manufacture of high voltage bushings) in the Transmission and Distribution division. The main growth engines for first quarter revenue were the Reactors and Services division and the Back End division, with growth of 29.7% (+36.8% LFL1) and 13.8% (+14.1% LFL1) respectively. Outside France, revenue rose to 1.857 billion euros, compared with 1.753 billion euros in the first quarter of 2007. This represents 67% of total revenue. As a reminder, the group points out that: - revenue can vary significantly from one quarter to the next in the nuclear businesses, and quarterly operations should therefore not be taken as a reliable basis for annual projections; - the foreign exchange impact mentioned in this release comes from the translation of subsidiary accounts into the group's unit of account, and primarily reflects the US dollar in relation to the euro. AREVA also points out that its foreign exchange hedging policy for commercial operations aims to shield profitability from fluctuations in exchange rates in relation to the euro.

      POWEO, the leading independent energy operator in France, presents in this document its key business indicators for the 4. quarter of 2006 and the full year: POWEO records again a strong rise of its annual revenue, exceeding its euro 220 million target. This progression relates to all the business components. The particularly soft climatic conditions recorded in France at the end of the year did not result in a significant fall of revenue compared to initial forecasts. The number of customer sites amounts to 80.300 at December 31, 2006, in progression of 23% compared to the end of 2005. The customer base remained overall stable during the second half of 2006, POWEO limiting voluntarily the acquisition of customers in electricity during the preparation of the opening to competition of the residential market due to take place on July 1, 2007. The gas customer base for its part more than doubled compared to end June 2006, with more than 5.000 customer sites transferred as at December 31, 2006. The Energy Management net margin, realised or un-realised, amounted to euro 49.7 million in 2006, recognised as revenue under IFRS standards. This includes the euro 22 million exceptional capital gain mentioned in previous financial releases in 2006, as well as a euro 7.9 million un-realised capital gain resulting from the transfer of some contracts into the Energy Management portfolio further to the capacity swap agreement with EDF announced publicly on January 3, 2007. The services provided by POWEO to its customers enjoy a high level of acceptance and represented revenue of euro 2.9 million in 2006. As from 2007, the revenue realised through these services will be presented separately from other components of revenue in order to better reflect its expected growth. The services offering will be indeed a key element of the marketing strategy of POWEO in the years to come, with a potentially significant impact on the results taking into account their level of gross margin which is structurally high. POWEO announced on January 3, 2007 to have concluded with EDF a long-term industrial agreement relating to a power generation capacity exchange, which will allow POWEO to have access from 2007 to 2021 to base-load electricity generated by EDF nuclear power plants. POWEO actively prepares the launch of its offering to residential customers, with in particular a communication campaign planned from next March to June in order to increase its notoriety and to create the conditions necessary to its commercial success on this segment. In parallel POWEO will dedicate specific sales resources to the acquisition of large accounts in industry and services. The public opinion poll carried out in the 4. quarter 2006 by BVA at the request of the Commission of Regulation of the Energy (CRE), and whose results have been just published, indicates that POWEO is already enjoying a global notoriety of 24% near companies only consuming electricity and 37% near companies consuming both electricity and gas. In addition, according to a TNS Sofres study ordered by POWEO, the assisted notoriety of the company near the specific segment of residential customers targeted by POWEO amounts to 13%. These results make POWEO feel confident in its ability to grow significantly its customer base in 2007.

      . Aucune d'elles ne possede de particularites morphologiques pouvant empecher les eaux profondes d'y penetrer ou de s'ecouler. L'augmentation progressive de la temperature de l'eau a partir de 3.000 a 5.000 metres de profondeur jusqu'au fond de ces fosses provoque des courants verticaux de convexion dans les eaux profondes. Il est theoriquement prouve que malgre l'effet stabilisateur du mouvement de rotation de la terre, il doit exister des courants de convexion alveolaires, meme lorsque les differences de temperature superadiabatiques restent tres petites. La repartition verticale de la teneur en oxygene en fonction de l'augmentation caracteristique du taux de saturation et de concentration en O{sub 2}, qui va en s'accentuant depuis la couche minimum (1.000 metres) jusqu'au fond, permet de presumer l'existence d'un mouvement horizontal et vertical ou bien d'un deplacement horizontal des eaux profondes dans toute leur masse. S'il n'en etait pas ainsi, l'utilisation biochimique de l'oxygene (au moins 0,1 ml par an) entrainerait un epuisement total des reserves de cet element dans les eaux profondes en un laps de temps relativement court (40 a 60 ans). L'existence de courants horizontaux assez rapides (5 a 17 cm/s) a des profondeurs de 1.000 a 3.000 metres a ete demontree par les mesures directes qui ont ete effectuees dans l'Atlantique et le Pacifique. La diffusion des particules dissoutes ou suspendues dans la mer n'est pas uniquement due a la circulation des eaux, au sens physique de ce terme. Le deplacement continu des organismes vivants constitue, en effet, un risque supplementaire de voir les substances radioactives accumulees dans les tissus de ces organismes etre diffusees par ceux-ci ou transmises par les chaines alimentaires a des distances considerables et a une grande vitesse, comme on a pu le constater apres les explosions experimentales qui ont eu lieu dans l'Ocean Pacifique. Il faut donc admettre qu'il est impossible d'immerger des dechets radioactifs dans les

      Full Text Available OBJETIVO: comparar a reprodutibilidade intra- e interobservador da medida da espessura total do segmento uterino inferior (SUI, por via abdominal, e da medida da camada muscular, por via vaginal, usando ultra-sonografia bi- e tridimensional. MÉTODOS: foi estudada a medida da espessura do SUI de 30 gestantes com cesárea anterior, entre a 36ª e a 39ª semanas, por dois observadores. Foi efetuada abordagem ultra-sonográfica abdominal com a paciente em posição supina e vaginal em posição de litotomia. No corte sagital, foi identificado SUI e foram coletadas quatro imagens bidimensionais e dois blocos tridimensionais da espessura total por via abdominal e o mesmo da camada muscular por via vaginal. As aquisições tridimensionais foram manipuladas no modo multiplanar. O tempo foi cronometrado. A reprodutibilidade foi avaliada pelo cálculo da diferença absoluta entre todas as medidas, proporção de diferenças menores que 1 mm, coeficiente de correlação intraclasse (ICC e limites de concordância de Bland e Altman. RESULTADOS: a medida da espessura média do SUI por via abdominal bidimensional foi de 7,4 mm e, por via vaginal, de 2,7 mm; a tridimensional foi 6,9 mm abdominal e 5,1 mm vaginal. Reprodutibilidade intra- e interobservador da via vaginal versus abdominal: menor diferença absoluta (0,2-0,4 versus 0,8-1,5 mm, maior proporção de diferenças (85,8-97,8 versus 48,7-72,8% com p0,05 e menores limites de concordância (-3,8 a 3,4 versus -3,6 a 4 mm para ultra-sonografia tridimensional e ICC semelhantes (0,6-0,9 versus 0,7-0,9. CONCLUSÕES: do exposto, concluímos que a medida da espessura da camada muscular do SUI por via vaginal utilizando a ultra-sonogafia tridimensional é mais reprodutível. Nossos resultados, porém, não indicam que essa medida tenha implicação clínica para predição de rotura uterina, que não foi objeto deste estudo.

A +1289 °F, la distillation concentre dans la fraction obtenue la majorité de l'azote, du nickel, du vanadium et des produits de tête. Cependant, étant donné le niveau élevé de son point de coupe, cette procédure implique virtuellement que certaines molécules contenant des hétéroatomes seront volatiles au point de coupe. Des quantités significatives de ces produits se trouvent dans la fraction 950-1289 °F. Parmi ceux d'entre eux qui contiennent de l'azote, on pourra trouver des benzophénanthrolines et des benzocarbazoles alkylés dont les points d'ébullition se situent dans le domaine 950-1289 °F. Il n'est pas non plus surprenant de trouver dans cette fraction des métaux volatils, puisque les organométalliques se vaporisent vers 1100 °F (environ 593 °C. Les matériaux du domaine A-1289 °F ont donné des rendements élevés en pentane- et heptane- -asphaltènes. Le bilan des poids des asphaltènes sur la base A-950 °F fait apparaître des quantités excessives d'asphaltènes dans le domaine A-1289 °F dépassant la marge d'erreurs permise dans la technique de désalphatage. On a également noté des déséquilibresen asphaltène comparables, lorsque des matières lourdes sont fractionnées par un désalphatage séquentiel utilisant des hydrocarbures différents à chaque étape (13. On peut penser que la technique d'adsorption, comme le désalphatage séquentiel, rompt les forces intermoléculaires qui, autrement, pourraient rendre les constituants de la charge solubles dans les hydrocarbones, du fait de la nature non polaire des participants. Dans le cas présent, on peut penser que les forces intermoléculaires du A-1289 °F sont plus difficiles à rompre par les n-paraffines (ou par le toluène du fait de l'absence relative (par rapport à A-950

      alteraciones fisiológicas inherentes al embarazo, baricidad, dosis y volumen del anestésico local. El objetivo de este estudio fue evaluar la efectividad y los efectos colaterales de diferentes volúmenes de la asociación de bupivacaína hiperbárica y sufentanil por vía subaracnoidea en cesáreas. MÉTODO: Cuarenta pacientes, ASA I y II, sometidos a cesárea electiva bajo raquianestesia distribuidos en dos grupos, de acuerdo con el volumen de la solución anestésica usada: Grupo I (4 mL y Grupo II (3 mL. En los dos grupos, el anestésico local empleado fue la bupivacaína hiperbárica (10 mg-2 mL asociada al sufentanil (5 µg-1 mL. En el Grupo I, para la obtención del volumen de 4 mL, se añadió 1 mL de solución fisiológica a 0,9%. Se evaluaron: latencia del bloqueo; nivel máximo del bloqueo sensitivo; grado del bloqueo motor; tiempo para regresión del bloqueo motor; duración total de la analgesia; efectos adversos maternos y repercusiones neonatales. RESULTADOS: La latencia, el nivel máximo del bloqueo sensitivo, el grado y el tiempo para la regresión del bloqueo motor fueron similares en los dos grupos; la duración de la analgesia fue mayor en el Grupo I, con una diferencia significativa con relación al Grupo II. Los efectos adversos se dieron a menudo de forma similar en los dos grupos. Se registró la ausencia de las alteraciones cardiocirculatorias maternas y de las repercusiones neonatales. CONCLUSIONES: La bupivacaína hiperbárica en dosis de 10 mg asociada al sufentanil en dosis de 5 µg, con un volumen de 4 mL, fue más eficaz que la misma asociación en un menor volumen (3 mL, proporcionando una mejor analgesia intra y postoperatoria, sin repercusiones materno-fetales.BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Several factors affect the cephalad dispersion of the anesthetic solution in the subarachnoid space; among them, physiological changes of pregnancy and the dose and volume of the local anesthetics should be mentioned.

      “Es la historia madre de la verdad, émula del tiempo, depósito de las acciones, testigo de lo pasado, ejemplo y aviso de lo presente, advertencia de lo porvenir”.

      Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra

      Introducción

      El vocablo español “HOSPITAL” procede de dos voces latinas que significan cada una “huésped” (bien sea el que hospeda o el que es hospedado: hospes, itis y hospitalis,e.

      Para satisfacer el título enunciado nos propusimos realizar una investigación de carácter bibliográfico e histórico, con el fin de conocer en lo posible, hasta donde lo permitiera la información disponible a nuestro alcance, las facetas que en el manejo de los enfermos y a través de los siglos pueden señalarse como similares, equivalentes o precursoras de cualquiera de las actividades que adelantan los hospitales de nuestros días, algunas de cuyas características principales lo presentan como punto de referencia y sitio de internamiento de los enfermos para su tratamiento, constituyéndose a la vez en columna fundamental del ejercicio de todas las profesiones atinentes a la salud, en especial de la Medicina en cuanto tiene que ver con su preservación, o con su recuperación cuando quiera que se ha perdido, y con la atención de las secuelas o limitaciones funcionales que en no pocas ocasiones quedan tras el ataque patológico.

      Además de las acciones específicas atrás relacionadas, el hospital es elemento insustituible en la enseñanza de la Medicina y otras profesiones de salud, apareándose codo a codo con las universidades, que necesitan más de él que él de ellas, sin que esta afirmación pretenda desconocer el muy importante aporte de la institución docente a la institución hospitalaria.

      El Hospital tiene también las funciones de transmitir, actualizar y generar conocimientos, para lo cual ha de investigar, disponer de buena biblioteca y conexión sistematizada con otros centros del conocimiento, así como mantener una vida científica muy dinámica y atractiva. Toda actividad del hospital debe ser éticamente transparente.

      Dado que el acto médico abarca información, exploración clínica y para clínica, diagnóstico, tratamiento, valoración terminal y pronóstico, nos detendremos cuando creamos encontrar en una determinada circunstancia alguna eventual analogía del pasado con cualquiera de esas etapas del proceso de la actividad sanatorial.

      De ser posible, determinaremos en cada ocasión el tipo de exploración para el diagnóstico, de éste en sí mismo, del tratamiento y del enfoque de la situación post enfermedad. Igualmente, haremos mención de los diferentes personajes que a través de la historia se han ocupado en manejar al hombre enfermo en los procesos de diagnóstico y tratamiento...

    11. Feedback as a means of decreasing residential energy consumption. Report PU/CES 34

      Seligman, C; Darley, J M

      1976-08-01

      When residential units are analyzed in human factor terms, it is apparent that the consumption level feedback (typically a bill, calculated once a month, over all appliances) is inadequate to give the resident useful information about his energy consuming actions. The present study tested the hypothesis that providing immediate feedback to homeowners concerning their daily rate of electric usage would be effective in reducing electric consumption. In the studied homes, central air-conditioning is the largest single source of electric power consumption during the summer. Accordingly, it was possible to predict the household's expected electric consumption in terms of the average daily outdoor temperature. Predicted electric consumption was derived from a previous month's modeling period during which a regression line was fitted to predict consumption from average daily temperature, for each home. Feedback was expressed as a percentage of actual consumption over predicted consumption. Feedback was displayed to homeowners four times a week for approximately one month. The results confirmed the prediction. Before feedback began, the feedback and control groups were consuming electricity at approximately equal rates. During the feedback period, the feedback group used 10.5 percent less electricity. The effectiveness of the feedback procedure was explained in terms of its cueing, motivational, and commitment functions.

A self-made questionnaire composed of four parts (6 open and 60 closed questions was presented to the participants. the questionnaire wasavailable online between 21/11/2015 and 20/01/2016. 100 fathers who filled in the questionnaire correctly were included inthe study.Results. only 18.0% of the fathers had not noticed any physical, mental or behavioural symptoms after divorce. 49.0% of themnoticed all three types of symptoms. several fathers’ work performance declined. one third (32.0% of the fathers had suchserious symptoms that they decided to consult a medical specialist. 80.0% of the fathers were not satisfied with financial supportoffered to them, 76.0% of them were not satisfied with the social allowances available to them, and 74.0% were not satisfiedwith the psychological and psychiatric support they are offered.Conclusions. Fathers are not prepared to face the divorce. physicians should be increasingly aware that divorce can be thesource of physical symptoms. Fathers feel the lack of financial, social and psychological support, as well as of legal support. theywould like to be involved in the family care of the hungarian health visitors’ network after divorce.

      Congestive heart failure is often associated with an impairment of the sympathetic nervous system, i.e., global hyperactivity and regional impairment of the adrenergic system. Cardiac {sup 123}I-MIBG scintigraphy is a radionuclide technique which can explore the presynaptic adrenergic function. Myocardial MIBG fixation is decreased in congestive heart failure, reflecting a reduction of norepinephrine uptake by the myocardial presynaptic nerve endings. The impairment of presynaptic function occurs early in the disease and is actually involved in the pathogenesis of cardiac failure. Cardiac MIBG scintigraphy is a useful tool to explore the myocardial adrenergic stores in patients with congestive heart failure. It could be proposed in patients with severe ventricular dysfunction in order to assist physicians in setting-up the timing of heart transplantation. (authors). 52 refs.

      The goal of this prospective study is establishing the evolution and long term prognostication in chronic ethylic patients afflicted with severe cardiac insufficiency (CI), presenting a dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM). Forty patients (average age 44.8 {+-} 9.2 years) are consecutively included according to the following criteria: CI (stage IV), DCM without definite etiology, chronic alcoholism during more than 10 years and superior to 80 g alcohol/day. The telediastolic diameter (TDD) of left ventricle viewed by echo-cardiogram is increased up to 68.4 {+-} 3.6 mm with a fraction of shortening (FS) of 14.2 {+-} 3.7%. The isotopic ejection fraction (EF) is lowered down to 21.6 {+-} 5.9%. All the patients received a conventional treatment of CI while the abstinence was hardly urged. Three patients recurred and subsequently refused the follow-up. By the third month, in absence of any amelioration, a patient benefited by a cardiac transplant and another patient deceased after myocardial biopsy. Nine patients benefited by a complete follow-up of 36 months. After the third month the functional amelioration is notable and confirmed by different parameters: TDD of 64.3 {+-} 3.6 (p < 0.02), FS of 18.8 {+-} 7.2% (NS) and EF of 31.3 {+-} 11.1% (p < 0.03). The amelioration of different criteria is significant by the 6. month and than stabilizes itself up to 3 years as showed by the EF evolution curves. In conclusion, the prognostication of these patients with severe CI is favorable. The functional amelioration is precocious and confirmed by the different ventricular parameters studied. The medical treatment associated with a complete and definitive abstinence is the key of success

      First quarter 2009 revenue was up 8.5% compared with the same period last year, to 3.003 billion euros. At constant exchange rates and consolidation scope, growth came to 3.9%. Currency translation had a positive impact of 57 million euros over the quarter. Changes in the consolidation scope had an impact of 66 million euros, primarily due to the consolidation of acquisitions made in 2008 in Transmission and Distribution and in Renewable Energies. The growth engines for first quarter revenue were the Reactors and Services division and the Transmission and Distribution division, with growth of 9.2% and 16.1% respectively. Outside France, revenue rose to 2.032 billion euros, compared with 1.857 billion euros in the first quarter of 2008, and represents 68% of total revenue. Orders were steady in the first quarter, particularly in the Front End, which posted several significant contracts with US and Asian utilities, and in Transmission and Distribution, with orders up sharply in Asia and South America. As of March 31, 2009, the group's backlog reached 49.5 billion euros, for 28.3% growth year-on-year, including 31.3% growth in Nuclear and 10.2% in Transmission and Distribution. For the year as a whole, the group confirms its outlook for backlog and revenue growth as well as rising operating income It should be noted that revenue may vary significantly from one quarter to the next in nuclear operations. Accordingly, quarterly data cannot be viewed as a reliable indicator of annual trends.

Organic growth was 5.1%. In the second quarter 2006 the group had revenue of 2,560 million euros, down 0.7% from second quarter 2005 sales (-1.6% like-for-like). Nuclear operations reported first half 2006 revenue of 3,334 million euros, up 1.6% from the first half of 2005 (+1.3% like-for-like), marked by: net growth of 12.9% for the Front End Division, mainly attributable to uranium deliveries and enrichment services; the contribution from reactor projects in Finland (OL3), China (Ling Ao-Phase II) and France (Flamanville 3 EPR), which boosted sales for the Reactors and Services Division by 2.7%, despite the downturn in sales of reactor services; a 14.4% drop in the Back End Division, primarily in the used fuel treatment business. The Transmission and Distribution Division recorded sales revenue of 1,701 million euros, representing strong organic growth of 13.8%, consistent with the increase in orders booked in the second half of 2005. Orders for the first half of 2006 were up by 17.5% like-for-like compared with those of the first half of 2005. The group is targeting a net increase in revenue for 2006, like-for-like.

Pour que cela ait été possible, ces chiffres auraient dû être calculés grâce à la multiplication de chiffres entiers par des fractions ou des chiffres décimaux, ce qui semble aller bien au-delà des connaissances arithmétiques des Incas. La présente étude expose et commente l’interprétation graphique établie par les auteurs. Une nouvelle interprétation est proposée, selon laquelle les quipus étudiés contiennent une information se référant à des angles, et un modèle géométrique est proposé. On trouvera dans cet article toute l'information numérique nécessaire pour de nouvelles recherches. Dentro de su amplio trabajo de descripción de quipus, Ascher & Ascher observaron en dos de ellos que los números registrados en sus cuerdas cumplen una relación muy especial. Para que tal cosa ocurra, los números debieron haber sido obtenidos mediante la multiplicación de enteros por fracciones o por decimales, operaciones aparentemente fuera del alcance del conocimiento aritmético de los incas. En el presente trabajo se expone y se comenta la interpretación gráfica que elaboraron los autores mencionados. Luego se hace una nueva interpretación, según la cual los quipus estudiados contienen información referente a ángulos y se propone un modelo geométrico. Se incluye toda la información numérica necesaria para cualquier investigación posterior sobre el tema. TWO QUIPUS WITH EXCEPTIONAL NUMERICAL CHARACTERISTICS. In their thorough description of quipus, Ascher & Ascher observed that in two cases the numbers registered in their strings have a very special relationship to each other.

Se objetivó en este estudio evaluar el estado ácido-básico materno con el uso de sufentanil subaracnóideo en diferentes dosis, asociado a la bupivacaína hiperbárica, para cesáreas y sus repercusiones sobre los recién nacidos. MÉTODO: Fueron evaluadas 40 gestantes a término, estado físico ASA I , con edades entre 17 y 35 años, sometidas a cesárea electiva bajo raquianestesia y divididas en 2 grupos equitativos: en el grupo I recibieron 12 mg de bupivacaína a 0,5% hiperbárica asociados a 2,5 µg de sufentanil y en el grupo II recibieron 12 mg de bupivacaína a 0,5% hiperbárica asociados a 5 µg de sufentanil. Fueron evaluados: estado ácido-básico materno a través de gasometria arterial antes de la realización de la anestesia y después del nacimiento del concepto, SpO2, alteraciones hemodinámicas, vitalidad de los recién nacidos a través del índice de Apgar y gasometria del cordón umbilical y presencia de efectos colaterales. RESULTADOS: Los grupos se mostraron homogéneos en los parámetros evaluados, observándose discreta acidosis metabólica materna compensada en ambos grupos tanto antes de la realización de la anestesia como luego después del nacimiento del concepto, no obstante, sin repercusiones clínicas. Los recién nacidos presentaron buena vitalidad y gasometrias compatibles con la normalidad. CONCLUSIONES: La asociación de bupivacaína hiperbárica en pequeñas dosis de sufentanil subaracnóideo en cesáreas mostró que es la técnica segura al binomio materno-fetal, preservando su estado hemodinámico y ácido-básico.BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Spinal sufentanil in obstetric anesthesia promotes immediate pain relief, improves anesthesia quality and prolongs postoperative analgesia, its major side effect being respiratory depression.

      2016-12-01

      Full Text Available The author proposes a method to design electronic equipment based on functional-node design method that involves the use of 2D- and 3D- models mechanical structures for electronic equipment as a way to reduce development time and errors when creating design documentation for electronic equipment. At present, most areas of science and technology are computerized, more problems in designing electronic equipment are dealt with using computer-aided design (CAD and Computer-aided manufacturing (CAM to reduce the time required for development and manufacturing of electronic equipment. Development of design documentation also requires a more effective approach, because the less the time for development of the design documentation is, the faster the developed device will go into production. The aim of the study is to develop a method of designing electronic equipment using 2D and 3D models of standard mechanical structures for electronic equipment using Internet resources. Based on the presented methods is an example of designing a device from standard bearing structures. Compared with traditional technology, the method of designing electronic equipment using standard parts has the following advantages: - reduces time and improves quality of development through the use of existing design documentation; - accelerates the implementation and introducing into production processes; - increases unification of design solutions.

      2015-12-01

      Full Text Available Au dix-septième siècle, la querelle de la « nouvelle philosophie », qui oppose Descartes à Gassendi, repose notamment sur la question, polémique, de la différenciation entre l’homme et l’animal. En effet, toute définition de l’animal engage aussi et parallèlement une réflexion sur l’homme. Les répercussions de ce débat philosophique s’observent dans la littérature viatique au sens large, mais plus particulièrement dans sa variante libertine et antichrétienne. En misant sur l’indécision formelle du genre viatique, qui oscille entre fiction romanesque et réalité testimoniale, les récits de voyage libertins tirent philosophiquement profit du principe relativiste que le genre impose par définition. Or, la médiation de l’inconnu par le connu se manifeste de manière encore plus brutale lorsque le voyage s’effectue dans l’ailleurs utopique. De la même façon que le récit de voyage met à distance la culture du voyageur entrant en contact avec celle de l’autre, le discours sur l’animal reflète également le discours sur soi. Dans l’Autre monde (1657 de Cyrano de Bergerac et la Terre australe connue (1676 de Gabriel de Foigny, deux romans hybrides qui mêlent récits de voyage et discours utopique, la frontière qui sépare ontologiquement l’homme de la bête s’atténue et se trouble. En souterrain, toute une anthropologie libertine s’esquisse chez Cyrano et Foigny, qui correspond à une expression singulière du « moi ».

      2017-10-01

      Full Text Available The theme of this year’s Centre for Education Studies Interdisciplinary Postgraduate Conference, now in its fifth year, is 'Education in a Changing World'. I attended the conference as a paper presenter and a conference attendee. My personal goals were to develop confidence as an oral presenter, seek professional development opportunities, and engage critically and reflectively with my work and the work of others.  My relativist epistemological beliefs define knowledge as uncertain, context-bound, fallible, defeasible and therefore changeable, and are compatible with my personal goals. Both the goals and beliefs led to the adoption of knowledge co-constructor, communicator, and analyst roles.  Beliefs, goals and adopted roles led to the identification of points of fallibility in my own knowledge and understanding of the phenomenon of interest. Therefore, I formed a perspective of conferences as enabling and facilitating knowledge construction between presenter and audience. Being reflective, critical, adaptable, creative, intuitive, flexible, and open minded are key attitudinal attributes of postgraduates, leading to positive conference experiences and increased self-awareness of own emerging identity as a social scientist. Increasing self-awareness of own identity is important for graduates, as on a broader scale this assists in keeping pace with an ever-changing world.

      Full Text Available Use of Wild Plants Species in Three Adjoining Village Southern Burkina Faso. Wild species are very important for people in developing countries. To enrich the knowledge of useful wild species, series of ethnobotanical surveys was conducted in three adjoining villages of southern Burkina Faso. This survey has permitted to identify 147 species distributed in 117 genera and 52 families. Woody species represent 60% and grass 40%. Fifty percent of the species used belong to seven families: Poaceae, Caesalpiniaceae, Combretaceae, Mimosaceae, Rubiaceae, Fabaceae and Anacardiaceae. Ninety-seven species are used in medicines, 47 for crafts, 46 for cattle feeding, 40 for human nutrition and 21 to provide fire. In all plants use categories, the calculation of index values showed that there are species that are used more than others. Thus, Sarcocephalus latifolius is the species most commonly used in medicines, Parkia biglobosa in human nutrition, Afzelia africana in cattle feeding, Vitellaria paradoxa in crafts and Detarium microcarpum in wood fuel. The evaluation of the diversity of use revealed that wood species have high diversity of uses than herbaceous. V. paradoxa is the species most diversely used. The top five most used species are V. paradoxa, P. biglobosa, Khaya senegalensis, Tamarindus indica and A. africana. The results of this study provide a database to assess the availability and the evolutionary trend of species widely used in the locality.

      Full Text Available RESUMEN: Desde un principio, los trabajos de investigación sobre el socialismo español se han centrado preferentemente en aspectos como su historia política o los grandes debates ideológicos en que se vieron envueltas sus organizaciones. Como acertadamente señala Santos Julia, razones de afición y, sobre todo, de documentación explicarían esta preferencia. Sin embargo, desde hace unos años, la ampliación del elenco de temas de estudio, por una parte, y la aparición de análisis regionales y locales, por otra, ha contribuido, cuantitativa y cualitativamente, a profundizar y clarificar las claves del socialismo en nuestro país. En este esfuerzo de clarificación de capítulos hasta hace poco olvidados merece destacarse el relativo al universo educativo-cultural de nuestro socialismo. Aunque los problemas que enfrenta este campo son abundantes y la desaparición, escasez o dispersión de fuentes no es el menor, a los trabajos ya clásicos de un buen puñado de estudiosos se suma hoy un grupo escogido de jóvenes investigadores que tratan de sistematizar los planteamientos educativos del socialismo.

      Full Text Available Objectives: Optimal depression screening necessitates measurement tools that are valid across varied populations and in the presence of comorbidities. Methods: This study assessed the test properties of two versions of the Center for Epidemiologic Studies Depression scale against psychiatric diagnoses established by the Mini International Neuropsychiatric Interview among a clinical sample of US Veterans deployed during Operations Enduring Freedom, Iraqi Freedom, and New Dawn. Participants (N = 359 recruited from two Department of Veterans Affairs hospitals completed a clinical interview, structured diagnostic interview, and self-reported measures. Results: Based on diagnostic interview and the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders 4th Edition criteria, 29.5% of the sample met diagnostic criteria for major depressive disorder and 26.5% met diagnostic criteria for post-traumatic stress disorder. Both Center for Epidemiologic Studies Depression-20 and Center for Epidemiologic Studies Depression-10 scales performed well and almost identically against the Mini International Neuropsychiatric Interview-major depressive disorder in identifying Veterans with major depressive disorder (Center for Epidemiologic Studies Depression-20 area under the Receiver Operating Characteristic curve 91%; Center for Epidemiologic Studies Depression-10 area under the ROC curve 90%. Overall, higher cut points for the Center for Epidemiologic Studies Depression scales performed better in correctly identifying true positives and true negatives for major depressive disorder (Center for Epidemiologic Studies Depression-20 cut point 18+ sensitivity 92% specificity 72%; Center for Epidemiologic Studies Depression-10 cut point 10+ sensitivity 92% specificity 69%. Conclusions: The specificity of the Center for Epidemiologic Studies Depression scales was poor among Veterans with co-occurring post-traumatic stress disorder (13% and 16%. Veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder who have a positive depression screen should have a more thorough assessment of mental health symptoms and comorbidities, rather than immediate diagnosis of and treatment for depression.

      Science.gov (United States)

      Batinti, Alberto

      2015-12-01

      I propose an application of the pure-consumption version of the Grossman model of health care demand, where utility depends on consumption and health status and health status on medical care and health technology. I derive the conditions under which an improvement in health care technology leads to an increase/decrease in health care consumption. In particular, I show how the direction of the effect depends on the relationship between the constant elasticity of substitution parameters of the utility and health production functions. I find that, under the constancy assumption, the ratio of the two elasticity of substitution parameters determines the direction of a technological change on health care demand. On the other hand, the technology share parameter in the health production function contributes to the size but not to the direction of the technological effect. I finally explore how the ratio of the elasticity of substitution parameters work in measurement and practice and discuss how future research may use the theoretical insight provided here.

      Full Text Available The base collection of wild species of Phaseolus and Vigna: history, management and conservation.The National Botanic Garden of Belgium ensures the management of a base collection of botanical and wild forms in the tribe Phaseoleae and the sub-tribe Phaseolinae. The main objective is to conserve on a long terni basic the largest possible genetic diversity through seed semples stored at - 20°C. The collection provided the basic material for the investigations conducted at the University Faculty of Agricultural Sciences of Gembloux in fields as diverse as taxonomy, genome analysis, definition of genetic réservoirs, agronomie and chemical evaluations, interspecific hybridization and plant breeding. The results have allowed to becter understand the organization of genetic diversity in the studied plant material and to highlight the wealthy genetic potentiel of the collection. The latter should be preserved and valorized for the genetic improvement of food legumes, in particular within the two genera Phaseolus and Vigna.

      bupivacaína racémica a 0,5% asociada a opioides por vía epidural constituye una técnica anestésica utilizada en cesárea, sin embargo su toxicidad se pone en tela de juicio. La bupivacaína con exceso enantiomérico de 50%, presenta un menor cardio y neurotoxicidad. Se evaluó la eficacia de la bupivacaína racémica y de la bupivacaína con exceso enantiomérico de 50% a 0,5%, asociadas al sufentanil, por vía epidural en embarazadas sometidas a la cesárea. MÉTODO: Cincuenta embarazadas a término, sometidas a la cesárea electiva bajo bloqueo epidural, distribuidas en dos grupos, de acuerdo con el anestésico local usado: Grupo I - bupivacaína racémica a 0,5% con vasoconstrictor; Grupo II - bupivacaína con exceso enantiomérico de 50% (S75-R25 a 0,5% con vasoconstrictor. En los dos grupos el anestésico local (100 mg estuvo asociado al sufentanil (20 µg y el volumen total usado de la solución fue de 24 mL. Se evaluaron: la latencia del bloqueo sensitivo; nivel máximo del bloqueo sensitivo; grado del bloqueo motor; tiempo para la regresión del bloqueo motor; duración de la analgesia; efectos colaterales maternos y repercusiones neonatales. RESULTADOS: La latencia, el nivel máximo del bloqueo sensitivo, el grado del bloqueo motor y la duración de la analgesia fueron similares en los dos grupos; el tiempo para la regresión del bloqueo motor fue significativamente menor en el Grupo II. Los efectos colaterales ocurrieron con frecuencia similar en los dos grupos. Hubo ausencia de alteraciones cardiocirculatorias maternas y repercusiones neonatales. CONCLUSIONES: La bupivacaína racémica y la bupivacaína con exceso enantiomérico de 50%, por vía epidural, proporcionan una anestesia adecuada para la realización de la cesárea. La bupivacaína con exceso enantiomérico de 50%, es una alternativa promisoria para ese tipo de procedimiento, por presentar un menor tiempo para la regresión del bloqueo motor, lo que mucho se desea en la paciente obst

      This report compares the application both of the exciton theory and of the polarizability theory to the study of the optical properties of dimers made up of two identical molecules having only one excited level when separate, and which are held together in the dimer only by Van der Waals forces to the exclusion of any covalent bonding. Using this theoretical basis, the author gives an interpretation of the changes in the spectrum of aqueous NN' diethyl-cyanine solutions as a function of concentration, and stresses the present lack of experimental data necessary for understanding of the mechanism of the hypochromia of nucleic acids. (author) [French] Ce rapport compare l'application, d'une part de la theorie des excitons, d'autre part de la theorie des polarisabilites a l'etude des proprietes optiques de dimeres composees de deux molecules identiques ne possedant, lorsqu'elles sont prises isolement, qu'un seul niveau excite, et qui sont unies l'une a l'autre, au sein du dimere, par des forces de Van der Waals a l'exclusion de toute liaison covalente. Sur ces bases theoriques, l'auteur donne une interpretation de l'evolution du spectre de solutions aqueuses de NN' diethylcyanine en fonction de la concentration et souligne l'insuffisance actuelle des donnees experimentales necessaires a la comprehension du mecanisme de l'hypochromisme des acides nucleiques.

      The eluate obtained by chromatography of a mixture of proteins on columns of cellulose ion-exchangers (DEAE-cellulose and CM-cellulose) sometimes have very low proteins concentrations. The resistivity measurement gives more information than the UV control which is often inadequate. The modifications undergone by elution buffers are recorded and the best conditions for the extraction of an enzymatic protein are determined. The tests are performed without proteins on the columns; they consist in a double control of resistivity and ph of elution buffers after they pass on the exchangers columns.

Des essais, realises en l'absence de proteines et consistant a effectuer un double controle de resistivite et de pH des tampons d'elution apres leur passage sur colonnes d'echangeurs, ont permis d'enregistrer les modifications subies par ces tampons et de determiner leurs meilleures conditions d'utilisation pour l'extraction d'une proteine enzymatique.

Ce livre présente de manière simple le monde des quarks, des leptons et de leurs interactions, gouvernées par des symétries fondamentales de la nature, ainsi que le lien entre ce monde de l'infiniment petit et celui de l'infiniment grand. Cette conjonction entre la physique des particules élémentaires et l'évolution de la matière dans les premiers instants de l Univers qui ont suivi le Big-Bang est un des plus beaux acquis de la science de ces cinquante dernières années. Après une description du cadre théorique, le modèle standard, et de son élaboration durant la deuxième moitié du XXe siècle, l'accent est mis sur ses grands succès expérimentaux, mais aussi sur ses faiblesses ou insuffisances telles que nous les percevons aujourd'hui. La passionnante histoire du grand collisionneur de hadrons du CERN, le LHC, le plus grand projet purement scientifique jamais réalisé, est présentée à la fois sous ses...

      Parmi ces sources, nous trouvons la « nativisation », la « dénativisation », la période intermédiaire de « l'interlangue » (l'apprenant substitue ses propres connaissances à celles de la langue apprise et évolue dans une période transitoire jusqu'à ne plus y faire référence et la proximité interlinguistique parmi les langues connues par l'apprenant (transferts. Une source importante d'erreurs, notamment lexicales, vient de la confrontation entre L1 et L2 dans l'esprit de l'apprenant. Ces erreurs sont majoritairement dues à la méconnaissance ou à l'insuffisance de connaissance du contexte culturel de la langue apprise. Il est évident qu'une simple conversation entre deux personnes ayant la même culture peut être incompréhensible ou même inaccessible à un étranger. Notre travail met ainsi en exergue que langue et culture sont intimement liés et que l'acquisition de l'une ne peut se faire sans la compréhension de l'autre. Selon le concept de la « lexiculture », leur enseignement doit donc être simultané ce qui présente en outre, de nombreux avantages. L'étudiant est motivé à apprendre car il comprend la langue qu'il peut pratiquer concrètement. Le contact entre les deux cultures (L1 et L2, comme par un effet de miroir, va lui permettre aussi de se situer par rapport à un autre univers culturel.

Toutefois, l’insuffisance de leurs contributions financières, la gestion peu efficace de celles-ci, ainsi que la concurrence directe et indirecte que subissent les économies agricoles soulèvent des interrogations sur l’avenir économique des régions étudiées face aux activités extractives.The mining reforms undertaken by countries like Guinea (1995, Mali (1999 and Senegal (2003 have created favorable conditions for the investment of gold multinationals in a transborder area located between the east of Senegal, the west of Mali and the north-east of Guinea. Through the side activities and direct investments brought about, these firms appear as an opportunity to integrate these marginalized zones within the national and regional economies. However, their financial contributions are insufficient and they provoke direct and indirect competition on local agricultural economies, raising questions on the role of extractive activities for the economic future of the areas studied.

      Full Text Available INTRODUCTION: La transplantation rénale (TR est actuellement considérée comme un traitement de choix de l’insuffisance rénale chronique terminale (IRCT. Ses résultats se sont améliorés au cours des dernières années. Cependant, les complications chirurgicales demeurent graves car elles touchent un rein unique et surviennent sur un terrain fragilisé par l’insuffisance rénale et l’immunosuppression. L’objectif de ce travail est d’évaluer la fréquence des complications chirurgicales lors de l’activité de TR au CHU Ibn Sina de Rabat, et de dégager les facteurs ayant influé l’apparition de ces complications. METHODES: Étude rétrospective des patients transplantés rénaux à partir de donneurs vivants apparentés (DVA de Juin 1999 à Décembre 2008 dans notre centre hospitalo-universitaire. Nous avons recensé les caractéristiques propres au receveur, au prélèvement, au donneur ainsi qu’au greffon. Les complications chirurgicales ont été colligées ainsi que leur prise en charge et évolution. RESULTATS: Soixante sept dossiers ont été analysés avec un suivi moyen de 55 +/- 28 mois. 38 complications chirurgicales ont été recensées : sténose des artères rénales (38,7%, lymphocèle (21%, hématome (12,7%, thrombose vasculaire (7,8%, reflux vésico-urétéral (4,8%, rupture du greffon (3,2%, calcul (1 cas, éventration (1 cas, L’analyse statistique de notre série n’a pas mis en évidence de facteurs de risque significatifs semblant influer sur l’incidence des complications chirurgicales.

      Full Text Available La Deuxième Guerre mondiale constitue une période clé, au Royaume-Uni, dans l’histoire des femmes et de leur représentation cinématographique. A travers l’analyse de chiffres officiels concernant les femmes et l’emploi pendant la guerre cet article montre à quel point les femmes jouaient un rôle essentiel dans l’« effort de guerre ». Il examine ensuite quelles réponses le cinéma a apporté par rapport à cet appel aux femmes, mettant en avant à l’écran les nouveaux rôles sollicités auprès des femmes mais aussi, parfois, continuant à appuyer des attitudes plus traditionnelles. En analysant une grande variété de films produits pendant la guerre, de genres cinématographiques différents – films de fiction, documentaires, films émanant des forces armées – on est témoin de l’émergence d’un nouveau type d’héroïne cinématographique, l’« héroïne de guerre », innovatrice dans le courage et l’esprit d’initiative dont elle peut faire preuve mais, en fin de compte, respectueuse des frontières des rôles traditionnels associés aux genres masculins et féminin. En conclusion, l’article se demande dans quelle mesure ces rôles cinématographiques innovateurs dans le domaine du genre ont pu se perpétuer dans la période d’après guerre.

      Full Text Available Dans cet article, on examine l'inégalité de chances et les résultats dans l'éducation au Brésil. Les résultats viennent confirmer ceux de précédentes recherches sur le thème, étant donné qu'ils montrent, dans le système éducatif brésilien, l'existence d'inégalités durables quant à la race et à la classe sociale. L'analyse montre que le niveau de vie (richesse des parents et le type d'école (publique ou privée sont des facteurs primordiaux pour comprendre ces inégalités tenaces. Les parents des classes nanties choisissent l'école privée pour leurs enfants jusqu'à l'âge de 15 ans, de façon à faciliter leur progression dans le système éducatif. En d'autres termes, à l'inégalité née des caractéristiques familiales, s'ajoute celle qui dérive du système éducatif. On présente ici des analyses de sensibilité pour rendre compte du possible effet de variables non chiffrées, ainsi que d'une méthodologie montrant l'effet des transitions éducatives sur l'inégalité des résultats scolaires. On conclut que pour faciliter l'accès et la progression des élèves dans le système éducatif brésilien il faut non seulement améliorer la qualité des écoles mais aussi les conditions de vie des familles.

      This review presents a synthesis of studies published from 1962 to 2000 on the relations between air pollution and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD): 12 ecological epidemiological studies, 6 epidemiological panel studies, and 11 controlled human exposure trials. The controlled trials, ecological time-based epidemiological studies and panels are examined successively followed by a discussion of their methodology and results. The controlled trials either do no highlight effects or show effects having no clinical significance since variations are similar to physiological variability. For epidemiological studies reporting individual data, the results point to a particle effect (two studies). This effect of particles is found in ecological studies which also describe an impact of ozone, sometimes of sulfur dioxide and less often of nitrogen dioxide. In conclusion, patients suffering from COPD are generally regarded as a group sensitive to air pollution, as suggested by the results of numerous ecological epidemiological studies. Rare individual studies provide a few arguments supporting this assumption. (authors)

      POWEO, the leading independent electricity and gas operator in France, presents in this document its key business indicators for the first quarter of 2007. For the first time since its creation, POWEO achieved a quarterly sales turnover in excess of 100 million euro excluding the Energy Management activity. The implementation of commercial resources dedicated to the acquisition of large accounts in industry and services indeed enabled the Group to develop significantly the sales on this segment, in particular to a French large industrial group. POWEO intends to materialize in the coming months some opportunities with large accounts thanks to the implementation of the transitory regulated adjustment to market tariff (TARTAM), as decided by the government last fall 2006 and recently further defined. The professional customers segment started gradually to grow again. Before the launch of the residential offering, the acquisition of new professional customers during the past quarter compensated for usual erosion. The number of active sites customers amounts to 80.500 as at March 31, 2007, overall stable compared to the end of 2006. The electricity customer base represents 75.000 active sites as at March 31, 2007, the gas customer base further grew to reach 5.500 active sites at March 31, 2007. In addition, the commercial partners network has been streamlined in order to preserve only a reduced number of them, in view of the forthcoming launch of a new web site which will enable to market directly to the professional and residential customers POWEO's offering in energy and services. Within the framework of the capacity swap with EDF announced on January 3, 2007, part of the forward procurement contracts and call options initially dedicated to supply the end-customers had been re-classified in the Energy Management portfolio as of December 31, 2006. According to IFRS standards, this portfolio must be valued at market prices. The energy sector faced during the first quarter 2007 an historically mild winter which incurred a significant fall in market prices. As a consequence, the value of the portfolio which is not dedicated to the commercial activity went down from 16.2 million euro as at December 31, 2006 to 4.4 million euro as at March 31, 2007. In addition, the under-consumption by end-customers due to climatic conditions led POWEO to resell on the market some procurement contracts, which generated a 3.3 million euro net loss. POWEO considers that market prices as at the end of March 2007 were abnormally low, reflecting an exceptional climatic situation. Besides, the situation at the beginning of May presents a significant improvement with a value increase of the Energy Management portfolio of almost 4 million euro compared to the end of March. The first quarter 2006 comparison base had been impacted by an exceptional capital gain of 22.1 million euro. The deployment of the industrial assets moves forward in accordance with the road-map. In particular, the construction work of the first combined cycle gas turbine power plant (CCGT) at Pont-sur-Sambre (Northern France) is progressing well. With regard to the other projects, the Group is finalizing the request for building and operating permits of Toul and Beaucaire CCGTs, which will be filed by this summer. In addition, the National Commission for Public Debate (CNDP) announced on May 2 its decision to arrange a public discussion regarding the LNG terminal project at Le Havre-Antifer, as this is also planned for the projects considered by other operators on the French territory. As regards renewable energies, POWEO will finalize in June the acquisition of the wind developer EED as announced on March 26, 2007. The Group also prepares its participation to the call for tender launched by the French energy regulator (CRE) for the construction of biomass power stations. Finally, POWEO will present within the next weeks its residential offering, while starting an institutional and commercial advertising campaign without precedent in the Group's history. This campaign will be based on strong and distinctive values and an innovating approach in customer relationship. POWEO intends to maximize the customer acquisition as from the full market liberalization on July 1, 2007. However the bulk of the sales growth is expected to take place after the summer months.

Fourth quarter 2010 revenue totaled 2.936 billion euros, an increase of 7.7% (+4.8% like-for-like) compared with the fourth quarter of 2009, due in particular to 18.1% growth in the Mining-Front End BG. Foreign exchange had an impact of 58 million euros over the period. The group's backlog came to 44.2 billion euros at December 31, 2010, up 2.0% in relation to December 31, 2009. The backlog grew in the Mining-Front End and Renewable Energies BGs. Installed Base Business operations held up well, replenishing the backlog for the Reactors and Services BG. The agreement with the Indian utility NPCIL concerning the construction of two EPR{sup TM} reactors and fuel cycle supply for 25 years was not recorded in the backlog at December 31, 2010. The change in the Back End BG's backlog reflects the implementation of contracts signed in previous years. Nearly one billion euros in letters of intent signed in 2010 with US utilities corresponding to pre-sold production from the future enrichment plant were not included in the Mining-Front End BG's backlog. The backlog of the Mining-Front End BG came to 28.902 billion euros at December 31, 2010, up 4% compared with the end of 2009. Contracts won in 2010 include: - the 10-year uranium supply contract with CGNPC for approximately 3.5 billion dollars; - several other multi-year contracts signed in the front end of the cycle with US and Asian utilities. For the full year of 2010, the Mining-Front End BG reported revenue of 3.704 billion euros, an increase of 6.7% on a reported basis and of 4.2% LFL. Foreign exchange had a positive impact of 84 million euros. - In Mining, revenue continued to benefit from the increase in AREVA's average uranium sales prices (+5%) and in volumes sold. In addition, gold revenue was up more than 80% compared with 2009. - In Enrichment, revenue was stable compared with 2009. - In Fuel, the drop in volumes reflecting the postponement of deliveries in France was offset by an increase in ancillary activities revenue (components and services) compared with 2009. The backlog for the Reactors and Services BG came to 7.290 billion euros at December 31, 2010. The leading orders booked in the second half of the year were as follows: - an engineering contract from US utility Tennessee Valley Authority to study conditions for completion of unit 1 of the Bellefonte power plant in northern Alabama; - industrial prototype design studies for the CEA for the Generation IV ASTRID reactor; - the start of design, engineering and safety studies for the Indian utility NPCIL under the agreement concerning the construction of two EPR{sup TM} reactors at the Jaitapur site and fuel supply for 25 years, with commercial negotiations expected to be brought to a successful conclusion in 2011. Revenue for the Reactors and Services BG was up 8.9% in 2010 (+7.8% LFL) to 3.384 billion euros. Foreign exchange had a positive impact of 39 million euros. - The New Build business was up due to significant progress on major reactor construction projects. - Installed Base Services were up sharply due to buoyant business in component replacement, the increase in power plant modernization and up-rating operations in Europe, and the large amount of work performed in the United States on unit outages. The backlog for the Back End BG came to 6.056 billion euros at December 31, 2010. The BG continued to pursue its international development over the year. In particular, it signed MOX fuel fabrication contracts and a contract with the US Department of Energy for the training of future operators of the MOX Fuel Fabrication Facility in Savannah River, South Carolina. Revenue for the Back End BG totaled 1.709 billion euros in 2010, up 4.4% compared with the same period in 2009 (+4.0% LFL), due to a higher level of business at the La Hague plant than in 2009. The backlog for the Renewable Energies BG came to 1.843 billion euros at December 31, 2010. The most significant contract wins during the year were: - a 400-million euro contract from Trianel, an association of German utilities, to deliver forty 5 MW M5000 turbines for the Borkum West II offshore wind farm; - a contract concerning the modernization of cogeneration units in ten sugar cane plants in Brazil with the independent power company Hidrotermica. The Renewable Energies BG reported revenue of 150 million euros for the full year of 2010, down 10.9% on a reported basis compared with 2009 (-16.9% LFL). The downturn in Biomass business in Brazil and Europe was partially offset by rising Offshore Wind business during the period. The fourth quarter 2010 recovery in the Biomass business was confirmed with the signature of significant contracts, particularly in Brazil

The increase was driven by the Mining / Front End Business Group (+ 20.8% LFL). Revenue from outside France rose 12.0% to 1.22 billion euros and represented 62% of total revenue. The impacts of foreign exchange and changes in consolidation scope were negligible during the period. The March 11 events in Japan had no significant impact on the group's performance in the 1. quarter of 2011. The group's backlog of 43.5 billion euros at March 31, 2011 was stable in relation to March 31, 2010. The growth in the backlog of the Mining / Front End and Renewable Energies Business Groups offset the partial depletion of the backlog in the Reactors and Services and Back End Business Groups as contracts were completed

      Full Text Available L'institut Français du Pétrole (IFP ayant acquis une grande expérience dans le domaine des catalyseurs, notamment d'hydrogénation, le Département Evaluation a effectué à diverses reprises des études qui en évaluent les marchés potentiels. L'analyse qui suit a été réalisée en vue de déterminer les débouchés possibles des catalyseurs utilisés dans l'hydrogénation des corps gras; elle couvre l'industrie alimentaire, l'hydrogénation des acides gras d'origine animale ou végétale, la production d'alcools gras et d'amines grasses. Ce marché dépasse 60 millions de dollars/an et correspond à près de 11 000 t/an de catalyseurs utilisés. Ces valeurs tiennent compte des consommations captives de catalyseurs produits par les compagnies utilisatrices. Ce chiffre d'affaires est du même ordre que celui des catalyseurs d'hydrogénation utilisés dans la synthèse des grands intermédiaires pétrochimiques. Plus de 64 % des applications concernent l'industrie alimentaire : production de margarine et shortening, hydrogénation d'huiles de salade et de friture aux États-Unis. Alors que la consommation de catalyseurs utilisés en lipochimie est très fortement concentrée dans les principales régions industrialisées : États-Unis, Europe occidentale et Japon, celle de I'lindustrie alimentaire est beaucoup plus dispersée : les 3 régions précitées représentent moins de 64 % de la consommation mondiale. Les débouchés estimés représentent des chiffres d'affaires annuels de 41×10·6 dollars pour l'industrie alimentaire, 8,3×10·6 dollars pour la production d'acide gras, 11×10·6 dollars pour la production d'alcools gras et 1,3×10·6 dollars pour la production d'amines grasses.

      When the euro was introduced, the fact that some coins contain nickel, which is known to be an allergen, gave rise to controversy. More generally, this raises the question of metal transfer from coins to skin. Morocco has used for decades one-dirham coins made of pure or alloyed nickel. Studying their wear, the labile metal on their surface and the transfer to fingers in handling may therefore be especially instructive. Weighing statistics for a sample of 401 coins confirm that cupronickel coins wear out more quickly than pure nickel coins and reveal that the dirham suffers a much stronger wear than other currencies for which wear statistics are available. SEM studies supplemented by ICP quantitative analyses show that the labile metal is mainly made up of chips, even after many handlings. These chips are often cupronickel, even on pure nickel coins, which shows that they are produced by the friction of coins against one another. Secondly, the surface of coins presents sweat residue with an important proportion of copper and a little nickel, which confirms that sweat dissolves surface copper. Depending on the alloy and date, coins have between 20 and 140 μg of labile copper and nickel, with a content of one quarter of nickel on cupronickel coins and about one half on pure nickel coins. The most worn cupronickel coins are the coins that present the largest amount of labile metal, and even labile nickel. In our experiments, the metal transfer to fingers when a cupronickel coin is handled for the first time represents between 4 and 9% of the labile metal and 0.05% of the annual wear. A simple and reliable test of nickel contamination consists in measuring the labile nickel. To cite this article: P.-G. Fournier et al., C. R. Physique 7 (2006).

      Full Text Available This paper examines the concerns which have led to the new wave of studies on populism in Argentina, focusing more on the debate surrounding the establishment of a new institutional framework typical of the 1980s than on the proliferation of 21st-century popular governments in South America. The typical characteristics and problems encountered in these studies are explained, and the defining features of the populist experience in 20th-century Argentina are analyzed by drawing comparisons with other populist processes in the region. Finally, the paper analyzes how certain features persist in the new political order, while others have gone through complete transformations since it was established in 1983.

      2010-11-01

      Given the emphasis on modesty and self-effacement in Asian societies, the present study explored differential item responses for 2 positive affect items (5 = Hopeful and 8 = Happy) on a short form of the Center for Epidemiologic Studies-Depression scale. The samples consisted of elderly non-Hispanic Whites (n = 450), Korean Americans (n = 519), and Koreans (n = 2,030). Multiple Indicator Multiple Cause models were estimated to identify the impact of group membership on responses to the positive affect items while controlling for the latent trait of depressive symptoms. The data revealed that Koreans and Korean Americans were less likely than non-Hispanic Whites to endorse the positive affect items. Compared with Korean Americans who were more acculturated to mainstream American culture, those who were less acculturated were less likely to endorse the positive affect items. Our findings support the notion that the way in which people endorse depressive symptoms is substantially influenced by cultural orientation. These findings call into question the common use of simple mean comparisons and a universal cutoff point across diverse cultural groups.

      Full Text Available JUSTIFICATIVA E OBJETIVOS: O monitoramento da pressão arterial oferece uma compreensão limitada das consequências hemodinâmicas da raquianestesia para cesariana. O objetivo deste estudo foi avaliar, com o auxílio do monitor de débito cardíaco não invasivo baseado na biorreatância, as alterações hemodinâmicas durante cesariana eletiva sob raquianestesia, na qual doses intermitentes de fenilefrina foram utilizados para prevenir e tratar a hipotensão. MÉTODOS: Este estudo observacional foi realizado após aprovação da comissão de ética na pesquisa e assinatura do consentimento informado. Pacientes saudáveis marcadas para cesariana eletiva sob raquianestesia foram avaliadas. Doses intermitentes de fenilefrina foram administrados para manter a pressão arterial sistólica nos níveis basais e as pacientes foram avaliadas com o monitor de débito cardíaco não invasivo baseado na biorreatância. Os dados hemodinâmicos foram colhidos continuamente no momento basal e durante os períodos pós-raquianestesia e pós-nascimento do feto. Os dados foram analisados usando ANOVA para modelos mistos e um p < 0,05 foi considerado significativo. RESULTADOS: A pressão arterial sistólica foi mantida entre 79,2% ± 14,2 e 105,9% ± 10,0 dos valores basais durante o período pós-raquianestesia e 78,4% ± 11,13 e 100,9% ± 10,7 dos valores basais no período pós-nascimento do feto (média ± DP. Flutuações significativas foram observadas na pressão arterial sistólica, frequência cardíaca e débito cardíaco no período pós-nascimento. CONCLUSÕES: Um novo monitor não invasivo, baseado na biorreatância, revelou flutuações hemodinâmicas significativas durante a cesariana sob raquianestesia, a despeito das tentativas de manter a pressão arterial nos níveis basais com doses intermitentes de fenilefrina.

      Full Text Available Las últimas décadas del siglo pasado fueron bastantes agitadas para la historia de la teoría económica. En Inglaterra, centro del universo económico, la teoría clásica cumplía cien años de dominio y ya se le veían sus achaques, aunque éstos no predecían su muerte. Recibía numerosas críticas, muchas inspiradas en el clima romántico de aquellos días. Se culpaba a la economía política de ser inhumana, fría y calculadora, pero la joven ciencia hacía caso omiso de las habladurías y las tildaba de sentimentalistas y carentes de fundamento. También se criticaba su tendencia a elaborar análisis cada vez más abstractos, a imitación de las ciencias naturales y exactas, reflejada en el predominio de la teoría ricardiana, cuyo método hace énfasis en la consistencia lógica de la teoría y la separa de su contenido histórico, sociológico y moral.

      Full Text Available El entendimiento completo de la dinámica epidemiológica actual de la tuberculosis en una sociedad requiere una aproximación holística. En este artículo se resume el comportamiento de la tuberculosis en Bogotá, Colombia, a través del tiempo. En periodos prehispánicos, la frecuencia de la enfermedad fue baja. Durante la Conquista y la Colonia se observó un incremento moderado de la tuberculosis pulmonar y abdominal. Hacia 1870 se inició un acentuado incremento de los casos de tuberculosis pulmonar, asociado con el proceso acelerado de la urbanización de la ciudad. Desde la segunda década del siglo XX, la tuberculosis pulmonar se convirtió en una enfermedad endémica. Después de 1920, la frecuencia fue relativamente estable hasta la década del 70, cuando se presentó un descenso; sin embargo, en los últimos años volvió a aparecer un aumento en el número de casos. La presencia de la tuberculosis en cada periodo se asocia con eventos sociales y ambientales.

      Full Text Available Ecology and management of the multipurpose Erythrophleum species (Fabaceae-Caesalpinioideae in Africa. A review. Introduction. Widespread in Africa, the Erythrophleum genus includes four tropical tree species with a high economic and socio-cultural value: Erythrophleum ivorense, Erythrophleum suaveolens, Erythrophleum africanum and Erythrophleum lasianthum. Appropriate knowledge of the ecology and the distribution of these species is required for their sustainable management. This paper is based on an extensive literature review and summarizes the available information on the African Erythrophleum species in terms of botany, phylogeography, ecology, forestry and ethnobotany. Literature. Erythrophleum ivorense, E. suaveolens, E. africanum and E. lasianthum are morphologically different and occur in distinct climatic areas. They are non-pioneer light demander (E. ivorense and E. suaveolens or pioneer species (E. africanum. Their primary mode of dispersal is via ballochore. The seeds have a dormancy period and can remain in the soil for several years. Their reproductive and foliar phenologies are regular and annual. Growth rate varies between species, ranging from 0.65 cm per year for E. ivorense to 0.16 cm per year for E. africanum. These trees are used in traditional medicine. Only E. ivorense and E. suaveolens (Tali are mainly logged for timber. Conclusions. Erythrophleum species ecological data are better informed for E. ivorense and E. suaveolens because of their economic importance. This review highlights the existing lack of knowledge regarding the phenology (effects of climate, fructification periods, the minimum diameter of fructification and the mechanisms of natural seed dormancy breakage. Targeting such weaknesses is required to create or re-evaluate methods of conservation and/or enhancement of populations and logging practices.

      Interest in measuring patient-reported outcomes has increased dramatically in recent decades. This has simultaneously produced numerous assessment options and confusion. In the case of depressive symptoms, there are many commonly used options for measuring the same or a very similar concept. Public and professional reporting of scores can be confused by multiple scale ranges, normative levels, and clinical thresholds. A common reporting metric would have great value and can be achieved when similar instruments are administered to a single sample and then linked to each other to produce cross-walk score tables (e.g., Dorans, 2007; Kolen & Brennan, 2004). Using multiple procedures based on item response theory and equipercentile methods, we produced cross-walk tables linking 3 popular "legacy" depression instruments-the Center for Epidemiologic Studies Depression Scale (Radloff, 1977; N = 747), the Beck Depression Inventory-II (Beck, Steer, & Brown, 1996; N = 748), and the 9-item Patient Health Questionnaire (Kroenke, Spitzer, & Williams, 2001; N = 1,120)-to the depression metric of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS; Cella et al., 2010). The PROMIS Depression metric is centered on the U.S. general population, matching the marginal distributions of gender, age, race, and education in the 2000 U.S. census (Liu et al., 2010). The linking relationships were evaluated by resampling small subsets and estimating confidence intervals for the differences between the observed and linked PROMIS scores; in addition, PROMIS cutoff scores for depression severity were estimated to correspond with those commonly used with the legacy measures. Our results allow clinicians and researchers to retrofit existing data of 3 popular depression measures to the PROMIS Depression metric and vice versa.

      The STIC 2001 and STIC 2002 projects intend to allow the implementation and the assessment of Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy in France. IMRT is an innovative technique in which the high-dose radiation volume conforms to an accurately defined target volume with less morbidity to the surrounding normal tissues. The main medical objectives of the projects are (1) to improve the therapeutic index while decreasing acute toxicity and late sequelae (mainly xerostomia and acute mucite for head and neck tumors), which allows an increase in the radiation dose to the tumor and then a better tumor control; (2) to propose a salvage treatment to patients who locally recurred in previously irradiated sites; (3) to determine the optimal treatment guidelines for a safe use of the technique in clinical routine. Our projects also aim at comparing IMRT and 3D conformal treatments on the one hand (STIC 2001), and IMRT and conventional treatments on the other hand (STIC 2002), with regard to costs. As a matter of fact, the use of IMRT is presently limited in France because its implementation requires high investment and personnel costs. The seventeen French Regional Cancer Centres involved in the two projects intend to study the additional cost of the use IMRT in comparison with the use of standard techniques, which appears to be a step for a wide use of this technique in France. Each of the studies is two-year prospective, and includes patients with head and neck tumors treated with a curative intend (post operative or exclusive treatments for STIC 2002 and STIC 2002), and patients with a prostate cancer (STIC 2001).

      Full Text Available Alors que l’élection de George B. Bush à la présidence des États-Unis avait pu autoriser certains à nourrir l’espoir d’une relance du processus d’intégration économique entre l’Amérique latine et l’Amérique du Nord, le bilan de ces huit années est mitigé et bien des incertitudes pesaient sur l’avenir de ce processus au moment de l’entrée en fonction de Barack Obama. Pour éclairer cette évolution, l’article replace les années Bush dans le contexte du recentrage sur la dimension économique de la relation qui fut consécutif à la fin de la guerre froide. La première partie, fondée sur l’étude des données chiffrées disponibles concernant les échanges commerciaux et des mouvements de capitaux, met en évidence une progression en trompe l’œil de ces flux, suggérant un désintérêt relatif des États-Unis pour leur traditionnelle arrière-cour. Pour rendre compte de cette nouvelle donne, la seconde partie revient sur le cadre géopolitique et géoéconomique dans laquelle s’inscrit la relation à partir de 2001.While George W. Bush’s election had promised to revive the drive towards further economic integration in the Americas, as he was leaving office eight years later the achievements of his presidency seemed rather mixed and the future of U.S.-Latin America relations uncertain. To shed light on this turnaround, this paper sets the Bush years in the wider context of post-Cold War renewed U.S. emphasis on the economic dimension of its relationship to Latin America. The first part, which focuses on quantitative data, concludes that although two-way trade and capital flows did grow significantly between 2000 and 2007, the momentum of the 1990s was largely lost. In an attempt to account for this trend, the second part focuses on the geopolitical and geoeconomic background which led to the United States’ relations with Latin America taking a new direction after 2001.

      Résumé Objectif Présenter aux médecins de famille une approche fondée sur des données probantes pour le diagnostic et la prise en charge de l’hypocalcémie. Qualité des données On a fait une recherche documentaire dans MEDLINE et EMBASE pour cerner des articles parus de 2000 à 2010 portant sur le diagnostic et la prise en charge de l’hypocalcémie. Les niveaux des données (de I à III) sont indiqués, le cas échéant et, dans la plupart des études, les données se situent aux niveaux II et III. On a aussi examiné les références des ouvrages appropriés pour trouver des articles pertinents. Message principal L’hypocalcémie est habituellement attribuable à des taux insuffisants d’hormones parathyroïdes ou de vitamine D ou à une résistance à ces hormones. Le traitement consiste surtout à administrer des suppléments de calcium et de vitamine D par voie orale, ainsi que de magnésium s’il y a carence. On peut intensifier davantage le traitement avec des diurétiques thiazidiques, des chélateurs de phosphore et un régime à faible teneur en sel et en phosphore quand on traite une hypocalcémie secondaire à une hypoparathyroïdie. Une carence en calcium aiguë et dangereuse pour la vie exige un traitement au moyen de calcium intraveineux. Les recommandations thérapeutiques actuelles se fondent largement sur l’opinion d’experts cliniciens et de rapports de cas publiés, car il n’y a pas suffisamment de données probantes disponibles tirées d’études cliniques contrôlées. Au nombre des complications des thérapies actuelles, on peut mentionner l’hypercalciurie, la néphrocalcinose, l’insuffisance rénale et la calcification des tissus mous. La thérapie actuelle est limitée par les fluctuations du calcium sérique. Quoique ces complications soient bien reconnues, les effets sur le bien-être général, l’humeur, la fonction cognitive et la qualité de vie, ainsi que les risques de complications, n’ont pas été ad

      The increasing of fault current level in electrical networks leads to a new interest for superconducting current limiters since 1983 when an ac wire with low losses has been developed. They are based on the natural transition from the superconducting state to the normal resistive state. In order to study the transition usual models are not sufficient. This paper deals with a numerical resolution of the electro-thermical coupled problem. Computed and experimental results are favorably compared. Some factors which affect the transition as well as the influence of the starting instant are studied. L'accroissement des courants de court-circuit dans les réseaux électriques a ravivé l'intérêt pour les limiteurs supraconducteurs de courant depuis la mise au point en 1983 de fil supraconducteur à faibles pertes en régime variable. Le principe de fonctionnement de ces limiteurs est fondé sur la transition vers l'état normal du matériau supraconducteur. Les modèles simplifiés s'avèrent insuffisants pour l'étude de la transition, une méthode de résolution numérique du problème électrothermique est donc faite. Les résultats des simulations sont comparés à ceux d'expérimentation puis deux études, l'une de facteurs influant sur la propagation de la transition, l'autre du type de court-circuit, sont menées.

      Full Text Available Ce texte tente de parvenir à une meilleure compréhension du rôle de la consommation relativement à l’objectif de soutenabilité de nos modes de vie. À cette fin, on croise deux thématiques : consommation et bonheur, consommation et soutenabilité. Les paradigmes standard et institutionnalistes de la consommation soutenable sont questionnés du point de vue de la tradition pratique – aristotélicienne – qui en montre les limites et les insuffisances. L’approche quantitative de la limitation de la consommation caractéristique de ces deux approches conduit à une impasse. La réception de cette notion de consommation soutenable dans la tradition pratique est ensuite esquissée, faisant apparaître l’existence d’une vertu propre à l’économie, d’un lieu et d’une institution de la consommation accueillis dans une constellation de régimes politiques possibles.This text aims to reach a better understanding of the role of consumption with regard to the objective of sustainability of our lifestyles. We cross two themes: consumption and happiness, consumption and sustainability. The standard and institutionalist paradigms of sustainable consumption are questioned parts from the viewpoint of the Aristotelian tradition which shows their limits and failures. The quantitative approach of the limitation of consumption specific of these two approaches leads to a dead end. Then the reception of this notion of sustainable consumption in the practical tradition is sketched. The existence of an appropriate virtue for the economy, a place and an institution of the consumption welcomed in a constellation of possible political regimes clearly appear as the keystones of the practical conception of sustainable consumption.

      Full Text Available Les tumeurs desmoides sont des tumeurs rares des tissus mous qui peuvent être très agressives localement. A travers l’expérience de notre service, nous analyserons les résultats du traitement chirurgical de ces tumeurs. De 1980 à 2008, 12 patients ont été opérés pour tumeur desmoide de la paroi thoracique. Le diagnostic a été suspecté sur la base des signes cliniques et radiologiques. Aucun patient n’avait un syndrome de Gardner. L’abord chirurgical a été souvent électif à l’aplomb de la tumeur. La résection a été complète dans 11 cas. La confirmation diagnostique a été apportée par l’étude histologique de la pièce opératoire. La durée du suivi post opératoire variait entre 24 et 180 mois. Une patiente était décédée par insuffisance cardiaque et rénale. 7 cas avaient récidivé, et qui ont été traités par simple résection complète dans 5 cas, dont un avait nécessité une greffe myocutanée ; par ailleurs, deux cas ont été traités par résection incomplète associée à une radiothérapie adjuvante. La chirurgie des tumeurs desmoides de la paroi thoracique doit être aussi large que possible pour diminuer le risque de récidive.

Toutefois, tout indique que cet enseignement n’est pas efficace, une conclusion supportée par plusieurs travaux en sciences cognitives. Approcher l’étude de la cognition évolutionnairement avec les théories à processus duaux permet une explication de ces insuffisances, tout en offrant des pistes pour aborder l’enseignement de la pensée critique et de la logique de manière plus efficace. Dans cet article, nous souhaitons présenter cette approche et explorer ces pistes de solution afin de faire quelques recommandations pédagogiques et mettre en place un cadre théorique. Nous présenterons un exemple d’application de ce programme de recherche avec la philosophie pour enfants.Many theories about the teaching of logic and critical thinking take for granted that theoretical learning, the learning of formal rules for example, and its practical application are sufficient to master the tools taught and to take the habit of using them. However, this way of teaching is not efficient, a conclusion supported by much work in cognitive science. Approaching cognition evolutionarily with dual-process theories allows for an explanation of these insufficiencies and offers clues on how we could teach critical thinking and logic more efficiently. In this article, we want to present this approach and explore these leads in order to make some pedagogical recommendations and lay the foundations of a framework.

      Introduction Analyse du profil bactériologique des pieds diabétiques pris en charge à l'hôpital militaire de Rabat et son influence sur l'antibiothérapie de première intention. Méthodes Etude prospective non randomisée étalée sur 18 mois, ayant concerné 105 patients. Après recueil des données et en attente des résultats bactériologiques nos patients ont été divisés en deux groupes: un groupe a été mis sous Amoxicilline + Acide clavulanique + Gentamycine (59 patients) et un groupe sous Ertapénème±Gentamycine (46 patients). Résultats L’étude a regroupé 85 hommes et 20 femmes (sexe ratio = 4.26). L’âge moyen est de 64.4 ans. La gangrène a été observée chez 79% des malades; elle était humide-donc surinfectée en principe- dans 43% des cas. Par ailleurs, 67% des malades ont un chiffre de globules blancs 12000 définissant une infection sévère. L'ostéolyse a été mise en évidence chez 27% de nos patients. Parmi les différentes techniques de prélèvements: 81% ont été profonds dont 21% de biopsie osseuse per opératoire et 14% de prélèvements combinés. 42% de ces prélèvements sont poly microbiens et 21% sont stériles. Les résultats bactériologiques viennent confirmer la prédominance des bactéries aérobies à Gram positif. Le taux de remplacement de l'Ertapénème est de 22% contre un taux de 50% pour l'Amoxiclav.

      Carboxylesterase (CES) is important for the detoxification of a wide range of drugs and xenobiotics. In this study, the hepatic level of CES2 mRNA was examined in cynomolgus macaques used widely in preclinical studies for drug metabolism. Three CES2 mRNAs were present in cynomolgus macaque liver. The mRNA level was highest for cynomolgus CES2A (formerly CES2v3), much lower for cynomolgus CES2B (formerly CES2v1) and extremely low for cynomolgus CES2C (formerly CES2v2). Most various transcript variants produced from cynomolgus CES2B gene did not contain a complete coding region. Thus, CES2A is the major CES2 enzyme in cynomolgus liver. A new transcript variant of CES2A, CES2Av2, was identified. CES2Av2 contained exon 3 region different from wild-type (CES2Av1). In cynomolgus macaques expressing only CES2Av2 transcript, CES2A contained the sequence of CES2B in exon 3 and vicinity, probably due to gene conversion. On genotyping, this CES2Av2 allele was prevalent in Indochinese cynomolgus macaques, but not in Indonesian cynomolgus or rhesus macaques. CES2Av2 recombinant protein showed similar activity to CES2Av1 protein for several substrates. It is concluded that CES2A is the major cynomolgus hepatic CES2, and new transcript variant, CES2Av2, has similar functions to CES2Av1.

      Full Text Available Botanical and agronomical characterisation of three species of cucurbit consumed as sauce in West Africa: Citrullus sp., Cucumeropsis mannii Naudin and Lagenaria siceraria (Molina Standl. There are in Côte d'Ivoire at least five species of cucurbit incorrectly called ""pistaches"" in town and cultivated at small scale by women for their oleaginous seeds that are a great importance in the sociocultural live of several peoples. Nevertheless, few studies aimed at the improvement of these plants (related notably to taxonomy, genetic resources collecting missions, genetic characterisation, agronomic evaluation, and selection have been carried out. In order to set up a list of reliable traits that should be examined easily during and after collecting missions, we carry out in the present study, for three species (Citrullus sp., Cucumeropsis mannii Naudin and Lagenaria siceraria (Molina Standl a botanic description and an analysis of eleven agronomic traits: 100-seeds weight, germination rate, seedlings emergence time, matured fruit weight, matured fruit decomposition time, mean number of seeds per fruit, seeds shape, fruit diameter, fruit interior cavity diameter, flowering time, and fruiting time. Statistical analyses using nine of these traits showed that the three species can be completely distinguished with six traits whereas the three other traits allowed partial distinction. Low yields have been observed for the three species: 11.41 kg/ha of decorticated seeds for C. mannii, 18.51 kg/ha for Citrullus sp. and 75.14 kg/ha for L. siceraria. From the observed yield components, the possibilities to improve the production of these cucurbits are discussed.

      Full Text Available Identity and ecology of Central African timber tree species: the case of Milicia spp., a review. Iroko designates the two African tree species Milicia excelsa (Welw. C.C.Berg and Milicia regia (A.Chev. C.C.Berg known as highly valuable in the timber trade. Despite its economical importance and a decrease in population densities due to exploitation, there is a significant lack of ecological and sylvicultural knowledge required for a sustainable management of iroko. In West Africa, M. excelsa has received more attention from scientists than M. regia, but several topics clearly need further investigations or outcomes cannot be transferred in the context of Central African rainforests. A first thing to verify is whether speciation really occurred in the genus Milicia: morphological differences between the two species are very low, and a revision in this genus may lead to some rearrangements of conservatory and management policies related to this taxonomic group. Furthermore, (i patterns related to the reproductive phenology and its controlling factors, (ii gene flow among and between populations and individuals regarding life history traits, influence of human activities and paleoecological perturbations, and (iii dynamics of seedling populations are among aspects that require emphasis in order to propose efficient tools for forest managers. Unless scientists provide these crucial data, the abundance of iroko in tropical rainforests will only depend on expensive plantations activities.

      Full Text Available José Martí proposes that for the proper development of the Republic in America it is essential to secure a government that has as the premises of its administration the natural categories of its origin. To evaluate the local characteristics Martí was thinking of I will carry out an analysis of two of his essays: Nuestra América (Martí, 1977 and Coney Island (Martí, 1881, in an attempt to unravel the polarisation strategy which supports his argument. Indeed, through a semantic axis the author places the concepts of nature and interiority over external and foreign, making a parallel between what he calls “natural men in America” and those who represent the “other”, the people of the United States. In this way, it will be possible to see how Martí will question the alleged hegemony of the northern country, claiming the primitive qualities of American indigenous peoples, to condition the problem of allocation of barbarism. The main theoretical framework to address this work is the use of the theories of discourse analysis of Teun van Dijk, which will serve me to develop and analyse the semantic axis that Martí creates in the works studied.José Martí propone que para el buen desarrollo de la República en América es indispensable un gobierno que fije como premisas para su administración las categorías naturales y autóctonas de su origen. Para apreciar cuáles son las características locales pensadas por Martí llevaré a cabo un análisis de dos de sus ensayos: Nuestra América (Martí, 1977 y Coney Island (Martí, 1881, con la intención de desentrañar la estrategia de polarización que da sustento a su argumentación. En efecto, el autor a través de un eje semántico sitúa los conceptos de naturaleza e interioridad por sobre lo externo y lo foráneo, realizando un paralelo entre lo que él llama “los hombres naturales de América” y aquellos que representarían a los “otros”, es decir a los habitantes de los Estados Unidos de América. De esta forma será posible evidenciar cómo Martí cuestionará la supuesta hegemonía del país del norte, reivindicando las cualidades primitivas de los pueblos originarios americanos, para condicionar el problema de adjudicación de la barbarie. El principal marco teórico para abordar este trabajo corresponde al empleo de las teorías del análisis del discurso de Teun van Dijk, las cuales me servirán para desarrolla y analizar el eje semántico que crea Martí en las obras estudiadas.

      Full Text Available In this work, the kinetic modeling of adsorption of Zn 2+ and Cd2+ in roots of Typha latifolia (cattail and Eichhornia crassipes (water hyacinth were evaluated. The study was done using solutions containing one or both ions. The experiments were performed using carbon paste electrodes modified with the roots. The model that best describes the kinetics of both ions in the two roots is the pseudo second order’s one. We also determined that both ions accumulate faster and in greater amounts on Eichhornia crassipes. Indeed, according to potentiometric titration and infrared spectra Fourier transformation, the number of adsorption sites is higher in this root. In the same manner, it was shown that both roots accumulate more Cd 2+ than Zn2+, and when the adsorption is made from a mixture, cadmium inhibits the accumulation of zinc.

      Full Text Available Shakespeare’s works remain a reference when artists — either playwrights or stage professionals — aim at philosophising on human nature. These artists use the Shakespearean material to give vent to their own imagination and critical approach to the world they live in. Not surprisingly, Shakespeare’s plays have constantly been adapted on stage and in the cinema to comment upon contemporary facts and to voice either political or social concerns. But the same plays have also been the pretexts for other plays, written in modern English so as to serve new prospects. This study is based on the work of three twentieth-century writers – Arnold Wesker, Edward Bond and Tom Stoppard – who rewrote Shakespearean plays: The Merchant of Venice (The Merchant, 1977, King Lear (Lear, 1972 and Hamlet (Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead, 1967. This article explores the way these plays were elaborated with reference to the original versions and why their authors decided to adapt the Elizabethan text.

      Full Text Available Teaching the evolution of the living species, a key concept in modern biology, is today at the heart of many studies within the French and international educational systems, from primary school to university. It may indeed go against religious beliefs and thus stir up controversy. In some cases, these beliefs may even become an obstacle to the learning of this concept. A compulsory element in the French primary curriculum until 2008, it seems however that this concept hasn’t been given much importance in schools. Firstly, we shall study the official requirements in the primary curriculum and we shall identify institutional expectations. Secondly, a written questionnaire will aim to define the personal relationship primary teachers in Keystage 3 (year 4, 5, 6 at primary level and student teachers have with the concept of evolution, inside and outside the classroom, and how this relationship might influence their decision to teach or not evolution, or the way they would teach it (Mairone, 2007; Mairone & Dupin, 2007, 2008. Thirdly, a written questionnaire submitted to Keystage 3 pupils will enable us to disclose their representations on the questions of the emergence and evolution of the living species; it will help to define learning barriers and appropriate didactic engineering. This is the subject of this proposition. This whole study is meant to make recommendations for teaching/learning of evolution of living species for primary school and for teachers training.

      Full Text Available The use of phytosanitary products is becoming increasingly restricted, due to their high cost, as well as the unavailability of certain products on the local market and their damaging effects on the environment and health. These different reasons motivated the search for alternative solutions to the use of synthetic pesticides. On this basis, we took on the task of evaluating the anti-fungal effectiveness of aqueous plant extracts from Balanites aegyptiaca, Cymbopogon citratus, Cassia occidentalis and Portulaca oleracea. These extracts, at 30% concentration, were obtained after different maceration periods (6, 12, 24 and 48 hours and tested in vitro against Colletotrichum graminicola and Phoma sorghina. The effect of the extracts on the mycelium growth of various fungi, when evaluated 10 days after incubation (DAI, shows that extracts of C. citratus, B. aegyptiaca, P. oleracea and C. occidentalis inhibit the growth of C. graminicola by 100%, 65%, 43% and 38%, respectively. The extract of C. citratus prevents the development of C. graminicola, regardless of the maceration period. This extract produces a greater inhibitory effect than the fungicide Calthio DS (20% Lindane and 25% Thirame. Compared to P. sorghina, inhibition percentages of 100, 72 and 16 were recorded for extracts of C. citratus, P. oleracea and C. occidentalis. However, extracts of C. citratus (macerated for 24 and 48 hours and extract of P. oleracea (macerated for 48 hours were more effective than the other extracts.

Le canal de Berry, voulu par les sidérurgistes berrichons pour approvisionner les forges en charbon, a rapidement joué un rôle déterminant dans l’implantation de nouvelles usines entre le milieu du XIXe siècle et les années 1920, surtout les tuileries-briqueteries et celles produisant de la chaux hydraulique et du ciment naturel. Pour les mêmes raisons, ces dernières ont aussi choisi les bords du canal latéral à la Loire qui a été initialement conçu pour pallier les insuffisances de la navigation sur le fleuve. Les canaux seront d’abord considérés comme des ouvrages hydrauliques, architecturaux et techniques mais on verra aussi le trafic et le fret qui les animent. Ils sont enfin les serviteurs des grandes usines qui en dépendent étroitement pour leur approvisionnement et l’écoulement de leur production. Par conséquent, un paysage particulier s’est constitué, caractérisé par le lien organique entre canal et usines selon une géographie linéaire : formes de la proximité de l’établissement industriel par rapport à la voie d’eau artificielle, embranchements particuliers (canaux, voies ferrées et ponts, ports.The Berry canal and the lateral canal running alongside the Loire, which meet up at the port of Marseille-lès-Aubigny, were cut at the end of the 1830s. They are an essential part of the network of canals in central France. The Berry canal, originally created for the iron and steel producers of the Berry region in order to facilitate coal supplies to their ironworks, became a vital influence in the implantation of new factories, from the middle of the nineteenth century up to the 1920s. Of particular importance were the brick and tile works, and other factories producing

      In this report, we are investigating the solar modulation of cosmic electrons, in different ways. By comparing the calculated intensity with the measured intensity of positrons, we can evaluate the solar modulation of positrons, hence the modulation of negatons, since the modulation of negatons is probably the same that for positrons. By comparing the electron spectrum in interstellar space needed to explain the galactic background radio emission with that observed near the earth, we can deduce information about the modulation of electrons. We can investigate the modulation through the observation of its variations during the solar cycle. This different ways lead us to compatible results. In spite of the fact that the precision of the experimental data is poor, the modulation can be represented by: a constant or a form in exp(- K/Ro{beta}) under the rigidity Ro {approx_equal} 0,5 BV; a form in exp(- K/R) or exp(- K/R{beta}) above this rigidity. In addition, the investigation of both electrons and protons displays that the diffusion-convection theory is inadequate to explain all the features of the solar modulation. (author) [French] Dans le present rapport, nous etudions la modulation solaire des electrons cosmiques a l'aide de plusieurs methodes. Par comparaison entre l'intensite calculee et l'intensite mesuree des positons, on peut evaluer la modulation solaire des positons, et aussi des negatons, puisque la modulation des negatons est probablement la meme que celle des positons. Par le calcul, a partir du bruit de fond radio, du flux des electrons a l'exterieur du systeme solaire et sa confrontation avec le flux observe a l'orbite de la Terre permet l'etude de la modulation solaire des electrons. On peut aussi analyser ce phenomene de modulation pour l'etude de ses variations au cours du cycle solaire. Ces diverses methodes donnent des resultats compatibles. En depit de la precision mediocre des donnees experimentales, on peut caracteriser la modulation par: une

      Introduction Le diabète représente la première cause de mortalité par insuffisance rénale au Maroc. Sa prévalence selon l'Enquête Nationale sur la Population et la Santé Familiale de 2011 est de 3,3% [1]. Le but de ce travail est de déterminer la prévalence et d’étudier le profil clinique des diabétiques en hémodialyse chronique au Maroc. Méthodes Il s'agit d'une étude transversale multicentrique incluant 2066 hémodialysés chroniques dans les 39 centres d'hémodialyse de quatre régions marocaines. Résultats La prévalence du diabète en hémodialyse est 21,6%. L’âge moyen 59±13,2 ans (26-87). Le sex-ratio est de 1,9. L'IMC moyen est de 24,5 ± 4,4 kg/m2 (15-41). 42 patients sont porteurs d′une hépatite virale. La durée moyenne en HD est 39,3± 67 mois. 57% des patients gardent une diurèse résiduelle versus 43% chez les non diabétiques. Par rapport à ces derniers, nous avons noté plus d'HTA (64% versus 45%), plus de complications cardiovasculaires (23% versus 12%), un âge plus avancé à l'initiation de l'hémodialyse (55,5 versus 47 ans) et un taux de FAV proximales plus important. Conclusion La prévalence des diabétiques en hémodialyse est relativement élevée au Maroc sans tenir compte des patients qui ne bénéficient pas d’épuration extra-rénale pour des raisons socio-économiques. Le taux élevé de mortalité est imputable au retard et/ou à l'absence de la prise en charge néphrologique des diabétiques. Dans nos régions où le système sanitaire dispose de faible moyen, l'accent doit être mis sur le dépistage précoce de la néphropathie chez le diabétique. PMID:25374630

      Introduction En 2001, l'Organisation des Nations Unies recommandait de rendre disponible les médicaments antirétroviraux dans les pays à ressources limitées. Cependant, l'utilisation de ces médicaments à grande échelle s'accompagne du développement de résistance du virus. En Côte d'Ivoire, plusieurs sites prescrivent les antirétroviraux. Cette étude avait pour objectif d'évaluer les facteurs programmatiques associés à un risque élevé d'émergence de résistance du VIH aux antirétroviraux. Méthodes Il s'agit d'une cohorte rétrospective sur 20 sites de prise en charge des personnes vivant avec le VIH. La population d'étude était constituée des personnes ayant initié leur traitement antirétroviral sur les sites en 2008-2009. L'estimation de la taille de l'échantillon a été faite à partir de la stratégie d'échantillonnage de l'OMS. Résultats Sur 20 sites, 98% des prescriptions initiales étaient conformes aux directives nationales et 20% des sites avaient 100% de prescriptions conformes. Au total, 33% des patients étaient perdus de vue au cours des 12 premiers mois de traitement antirétroviral et 20% des sites avaient moins de 20% de perdus de vue. A 12 mois, 51% des patients demeuraient sous traitement de première intention approprié et 11% des sites ont atteint le seuil d'au moins 70% de patients sous traitement de première intention approprié. Un seul site n'a pas connu de rupture d'antirétroviraux sur les 12 mois. Conclusion Des insuffisances relevées dans la prise en charge des personnes vivant avec le VIH traduisent l'existence d'un risque important de résistance du virus aux antirétroviraux en 2008-2009. Pour minimiser ce risque les pratiques de prescription devraient être améliorées, un système de recherche des absents aux rendez-vous devrait être mis en place et la disponibilité constante des antirétroviraux devraient être assurée.

Dans les maladies thyroiediennes, l'analyse des resultats confirme une difference significative entre les sujets temoins, les hypo et les hyperthyroidiens chez lesquels la consommation quotidienne d'hormones est tres abaissee ou au contraire augmentee. L'etude parallele de la capacite de transport de la thyroxine par la TBG et la TBPA autorise l'interpretation de ces variations qui semblent inversement proportionnelles a la quantite de thyroxine liee aux proteines vectrices du plasma. L'interet pratique de ce test doit etre souligne chez les sujets soumis as une surcharge par produit de contraste organo-iode et dans les formes atypiques de la maladie ou les investigations biologiques classiques sont d'interpretation difficile. Dans le diabete sucre, l'insulinotherapie augmente la quantite quotidiennement consommee de T{sub 4} et surtout de T{sub 3} tandis que les sulfamides hypoglycemiants ne paraissent avoir aucune incidence. Dans les syndromes nephrotiques, la vitesse de renouvellement de la T{sub 4} est accrue tandis que la clearance renale de cette hormone est tres elevee, a l'inverse de celle de la T{sub 3} moins liee aux proteines. Au cours de l'insuffisance renale, la vitesse de renouvellement de la T{sub 4} est tres abaissee tandis que son espace de dilution et son pool sont accrus. Ces resultats confirment l'interet de

      Full Text Available Malgré des progrès récents, le taux de scolarisation des filles reste inférieur à celui des garçons dans la majorité des pays d’Afrique subsaharienne. Les causes de la sous-scolarisation des filles sont nombreuses. Elles tiennent tant à des facteurs d’offre (écoles en nombre insuffisant, éloignées, etc. qu’à des facteurs de demande (investissement dans la scolarisation des filles jugée comme non rentable, crainte de l’émancipation des femmes éduquées, etc.. Dans ce contexte, Madagascar est souvent présentée comme une exception : les taux de scolarisation sont élevés et on observe une grande parité entre les filles et les garçons. Toutefois, au sein même des écoles, les filles et les garçons ne sont pas traités de la même façon. Douze écoles ont été observées, des entretiens ont été menés auprès d’enseignants et des focus group avec des élèves ont été réalisés. Les analyses de ces données montrent que les discours et les pratiques perpétuant des stéréotypes de genre sont nombreux et que ces stéréotypes sont intégrés par les enseignants et par les élèves.Despite rising educational levels across much of the African world, gender inequities in education persist. Girls are less likely to attend school than boys. Researchers have suggested various explanations for the gender gap in education in Africa. The lack of primary schools in many developing countries and norms regarding female education discourage parents from investing in their daughters’ education. In Sub-Saharan Africa, Madagascar is an exception: most children receive education; boys and girls are enrolled in primary schools in equal numbers. However, our objective is to explore gender segregation, and the treatment of boys and girls in primary schools during the lessons and playtime. Twelve schools were included in the study; teachers completed in-depth interviews and focus groups with students were interviewed. Our findings

      2012-05-01

      Full Text Available En Afrique, la maîtrise du risque infectieux en milieu hospitalier reste une question cruciale. Bien souvent, les analyses se limitent à une évaluation des décalages entre des normes techniques et des pratiques hospitalières. L’insuffisance des connaissances théoriques est régulièrement invoquée, conduisant à un cycle de formation-évaluation qui semble largement voué à l’échec. Une approche anthropologique peut aider à la résolution de ces problèmes. En proposant une lecture des dimensions sociales et culturelles des risques sanitaires, le rôle de l’anthropologue est d’élargir la compréhension de ces dysfonctionnements. Il s’agit de penser l’hôpital comme un espace où s’articulent diverses dimensions sociales, éthiques, médicales et techniques. Témoignant de cet apport complémentaire dans le champ de la santé, de nouvelles pistes émergent d’une enquête menée à l’Hôpital National de Niamey. D’abord, la superposition d’espaces techniques et sociaux se traduit par une confusion dans les gestes. Les obligations sociales brouillent alors les chaînes gestuelles techniques. Ensuite, la prégnance d’un héritage historique définit un certain mode de délivrance des biens publics dont les manifestations se retrouvent dans le quotidien d’un hôpital. Enfin, des « mondes sensibles » différents et les normes techniques élaborées dans le contexte de la médecine moderne deviennent des abstractions en l’absence de correspondances perceptives. Ici, l’anthropologie jette un pont interdisciplinaire entre les préoccupations de santé publique et les questions d’économie morale et décisionnelle.In Africa, controlling infectious diseases in hospitals remains a major issue. So far, most analyses have assessed the gap between technical norms and hospital practices. These surveys commonly enlighten a lack of theoretical knowledge and, therefore, come up with cycles of training-assessing which

La durée de séchage est longue, la dureté pendulaire est faible et un phénomène marqué de jaunissement. Ces faiblesses sont liées au pouvoir siccatif encore insuffisant des esters. Ce manque de réactivité peut être amélioré en modifiant les formulations actuelles des résines glycérophtaliques qui aujourd’hui ne permettent pas de faire réagir rapidement et complètement les esters conjugués avec celles-ci.

      The AREVA group's backlog reached a record level of euro 39.834 billion as of December 31, 2007, up by 55% from that of year-end 2006. In Nuclear, the backlog was euro 34.927 billion at year-end 2007 (+58%), due in particular to the signature of a contract in a record amount with the Chinese utility CGNPC. The series of agreements concluded provide among other things for the construction of two new-generation EPR nuclear islands and the supply of all of the materials and services needed for their operation through 2027. CGNPC also bought 35% of the production of UraMin, the mining company acquired by AREVA in August 2007. Industrial cooperation in the Back End of the cycle was launched with the signature of an agreement between China and France. In addition, the group signed several long-term contracts in significant amounts, particularly with KHNP of South Korea, EDF and Japanese utilities. The Transmission and Distribution division won several major contracts in Libya and Qatar at the end of the year approaching a total of euro 750 million. For the entire year, new orders grew by 34% to euro 5.816 billion. The backlog, meanwhile, grew by 40% to euro 4.906 billion at year-end. The group cleared sales revenue of euro 11.923 billion in 2007, up by 9.8% (+10.4% like-for-like) in relation to 2006 sales of euro 10.863 billion. Sales revenue for the 4. quarter of 2007 rose to euro 3.858 billion, for growth of 16.7% (+18.8% like-for-like) over one year. Sales revenue for the year was marked by: - Growth of 7.6% (+10.6% like-for-like) in Front End sales revenue, which rose to euro 3.140 billion. The division's Enrichment operations posted strong growth. - Sales were up by 17.5% (+15.2% like-for-like) to euro 2.717 billion in the Reactors and Services division. Sales revenue was driven in particular by the growth of Services operations, after weak demand in 2006, by progress on OL3 construction, and by the start of Flamanville 3, the second EPR. For the Back End division, sales revenue was down by 8.9% (-8.3% like-for-like) to euro 1.738 billion due to staggered production in the Treatment business. For the Transmission and Distribution division, sales were up by 16.2% (+16.7% like-for-like) to euro 4.327 billion, continuing the positive performance of the past several quarters in the Products and Systems businesses, particularly in the Middle East, Asia and Europe. The group once again expects strong growth in its backlog and in sales revenue in 2008.

Cette banque concernant plus de 400 accidents survenus de 1955 à 1979 a permis d'établir plusieurs corrélations et de préciser quelques points. En particulier si le nombre d'accidents « principaux » ne semble pas avoir augmenté d'une façon significative au cours de ces dernières années ainsi que le déversement global dû aux accidents, celui-ci nous paraît avoir été sous-estimé dans les évaluations antérieures.

After describing the main problems raised by occidental offshore oil spills from a qualitative and quantitative standpoint and then reviewing various data token from previous reports, this article goes on to describe the results of documentary activity by Institut Français du Pétrole in this field - list of accidents resulting in a spill of more than 500 t and coming from various origins (ships, platforms, pipelines, coastal installations; - data bank on ship accidents. This data bank includes more thon 400 accidents occurring between 1955 and 1979. It reveals various correlations and specific points. In particular, whereas the number of « principal » accidents does not seem to have appreciably increased in the last few years nor has the overall amount thus spilled, these data

      Summary But: Ce travail vise à évaluer les connaissances, attitudes et pratiques des médecins généralistes sur la prise en charge de l’hypertension artérielle à Cotonou. Méthodes: L’étude était transversale et descriptive basée sur une enquête multicentrique du 1er Mai 2011 au 31 Juillet 2011. Un recrutement de tous les médecins généralistes, volontaires exerçant dans les centres de santé privés, publics et confessionnels de la ville de Cotonou, ayant autorisé l’étude, a été fait. Le 7ème rapport de Joint National Committee (JNC7) a été utilisé comme référentiel pour l’évaluation de la prise en charge des hypertendus. Un auto-questionnaire adressé aux généralistes, testé et validé, a été utilisé pour recueillir ces données. Résultats: Au total, 41 médecins généralistes dans huit établissements sanitaires ont été inclus. Près de la moitié des généralistes (48.8%) ne connaissaient pas la définition de l’HTA. Seulement 25 généralistes (61.0%) pouvaient décrire les conditions de mesure de la pression artérielle. Dix généralistes (24.4%) étaient incapables de lister la moitié des examens du bilan minimum de l’hypertension artérielle (HTA). La majorité (92.7%) ne connaissait pas la notion de risque cardiovasculaire global. L’objectif tensionnel (TA ≤ 140/90 mmHg) n’était connu que par 18 (43.9%) médecins. Les mesures hygiéno-diététiques seules (82.9%) et la monothérapie seule (70.7%) étaient les modalités thérapeutiques les plus prescrites. Les classes pharmacologiques antihypertensives prescrites étaient surtout les inhibiteurs calciques (82.9%), les inhibiteurs de l’enzyme de conversion (53.7%) et les diurétiques (36.6%). Les généralistes référaient les hypertendus aux cardiologues principalement pour non-maitrise du chiffres tensionnels (63,4%) et l’apparition de complications aigues (56.1%). Conclusion: Les connaissances des généralistes sur la prise en charge de l

      Full Text Available Housing in Hungary has undergone significant changes since the years of political and economic transition. During the socialist decades the housing sector was controlled by the state, market forces were marginal or non-existent. Thus, one of the biggest changes in housing was the establishment of a western-type residential market after the regime change. The latest worldwide economic crisis has had a dramatic impact on the Hungarian housing market. The turnover of the Hungarian residential market has declined enormously in the past few years. Those families who financed their housing by foreign currency mortgages are facing the hardest situation. The Hungarian forint has significantly weakened against other currencies having resulted in a dramatic increase in foreign currency mortgage payments. First, the paper briefly reviews the literature on housing theories, then it outlines the most important milestones in the development of the Hungarian residential market. The next part of the paper introduces the most problematic issues and areas concerning housing in Hungary, and finally analyzes the effects and consequences of the present economic crisis.En Hongrie, le logement est confronté à d’importantes mutations depuis les années de transition politique et économique. Durant les décennies du socialisme, ce secteur se trouvait sous le contrôle de l’état et les forces du marché étaient marginales, voire inexistantes. En conséquence, l’un des changements majeurs dans le secteur fut l’établissement d’un marché résidentiel de type occidental à la suite du changement de régime. La dernière crise économique mondiale a eu un impact crucial sur le marché du logement hongrois, dont le chiffre d’affaires a considérablement chuté ces dernières années. Les familles qui finançaient leur logement à l’aide de prêts hypothécaires étrangers se retrouvent dans la situation la plus difficile. La très nette dévaluation du

      Four cellulose synthase genes were identified by analysis of their class-specific regions (CSRII) in plants of fiber flax during the "rapid growth" stage. These genes were designated as LusCesA1, LusCesA4, LusCesA7 and LusCesA9. LusCesA4, LusCesA7, and LusCesA9 genes were expressed in the stem; LusCesA1 and LusCesA4 genes were expressed in the apex part of plants, and the LusCesA4 gene was expressed in the leaves of fiber flax. The expression of the LusCesA7 and LusCesA9 genes was specific to the stems of fiber flax. These genes may influence the quality of the flax fiber.

On a pu observer que la plupart des eleves sourds possédaient un domaine insuffisant des habilites associées au processus de revisión d'un texte. En effet, les eleves trouvaient des difficultés lors du développement des opérations de revisión par rapport á la ponctuation, syntaxe, morphologie, lexique et structure textuelle. Ces difficultés sont dues a l'information insuffisante que les eleves sourds recoivent suite aux limitations existantes entre les entendants et les sourds.

      Full Text Available Introduction : Le nombre d’enfants chez lesquels on diagnostique un trouble du spectre de l’autisme (TSA grimpe rapidement depuis une décennie. L’étiologie de ce trouble est toutefois en grande partie inconnue, même si la contribution de l’environnement est importante par rapport à celle de la génétique. Nous avons procédé à une étude de délimitation pour évaluer en détail l’état actuel des connaissances sur les facteurs environnementaux présents depuis le stade de la préconception jusqu’au début de la vie que l’on associe au TSA et pour dégager les lacunes de la recherche. Méthodologie : Nous avons cherché dans les bases de données électroniques MEDLINE, PsycINFO et ERIC des articles portant sur des facteurs de risque potentiels ou des facteurs de protection des environnements physiques et sociaux associés au TSA et à ses sous-catégories entre le 1er janvier 2003 et le 12 juillet 2013. Nous avons regroupé les articles en thèmes généraux en fonction de l’exposition environnementale : facteurs chimiques, physiologiques, nutritionnels et sociaux. Résultats : Nous avons trouvé plus de 50 000 publications, mais après élimination des études inadmissibles il est resté 315 articles. La plupart de ces études portaient sur les facteurs psychologiques, suivis de près par les facteurs chimiques et, à un degré beaucoup moindre, les facteurs nutritionnels et sociaux associés au TSA. En dépit d’une masse importante de publications et de nombreuses études hétérogènes, quelques facteurs de risque se sont démarqués régulièrement : facteurs chimiques comme les polluants atmosphériques causés par la circulation; facteurs physiologiques, dont l’âge avancé des parents, les naissances prématurées, l’insuffisance de poids à la naissance, l’hyperbilirubinémie et les grappes de complications de la grossesse et enfin le statut de la mère vis-à-vis de l’immigration.

      , pour un industriel, la question de savoir s'il adoptera cette technique depend principalement de considerations d'ordre economique. Au Danemark, une entreprise industrielle a maintenant juge qu'il etait rentable de construire une installation de taille industrielle a fins multiples, equipee d'une machine americaine Linac, qui permettra de traiter des produits alimentaires. Jusqu'a present, seules quelques entreprises dans le monde disposent de donnees concretes sur les prix de revient pour le traitement industriel des produits alimentaires, mais les chiffres concernant d'autres domaines peuvent donner des indications. Pour les calculs pratiques, il est utile de classer les installations selon la caracteristique principale des operations, par exemple: traitement des produits 'en vrac', des articles 'moyens', des articles ' petits', et installations a ' fins multiples'; les produits alimentaires peuvent entrer sous n'importe laquelle de ces rubriques. Le cout de l'irradiation depend des proprietes du produit, du type d'installation, des quantites annuelles et mensuelles traitees, des doses, des normes de controle, des exigences speciales pour le reemballage et autres operations de manutention, etc. Dans chaque cas particulier on ne peut obtenir de chiffres surs que par un calcul precis, mais pour une evaluation preliminaire l'industriel dispose de plusieurs gammes generales de prix et il est deja evident, en ce qui concerne diverses operations, que l'irradiation est economiquement rentable. Outre l'economie de l'installation, il serait bon que l'entrepreneur etudie certains problemes commerciaux generaux, tels que la preference du consommateur et la structure du marche pour la denree en question. Le plus souvent, le meilleur moyen a cette fin consiste a commercialiser une production pilote avant de decider d'investir de grosses sommes dans du materiel tres specialise. Pour certains produits, des essais fructueux ont deja ete faits sur le marche par des organismes de

      This report is a follow up of the report CEA DAPNIA/SPHN-99-04T of Vincent Gressier. In the frame of a collaboration between the 'Commissariat a l'Energie Atomique (CEA)' and the Institute for Reference Materials and Measurement (IRMM, Geel, Belgique), the resonance parameters of neptunium 237 have been determined in the energy interval between 0 and 500 eV. These parameters have been obtained by using the Refit code in analysing simultaneously three transmission experiments. The covariance matrix of statistical origin is provided. A new method, based on various sensitivity studies is proposed for determining also the covariance matrix of systematic origin, relating the resonance parameters. From an experimental viewpoint, the study indicated that, with a large probability, the background spectrum has structure. A two dimensional profiler for the neutron density has been proved feasible. Such a profiler could, among others, demonstrate the existence of the structured background. (authors)

Built in the Moldavian style, with Byzantine, Gothic and Renaissance architectural elements, purpose of this foundations was first of all liturgical, to celebrate The Seven Daily Prayers unto God by the hierarchy church (bishops, priests, deacons, in the center of which is until today the most important mystery of the Christianity - the Eucharist. But the Monastery of Putna was not just a spiritual center of Moldavian Christianity, it was one of the most important centers of medieval art and culture from the Romanian Principalities, here there are significant workshops for embroidery and iconography and a famous school of calligraphers and miniaturists. Most of the objects made here were destined of the religious cult of the monastery as well as Prince donations made of orthodox monasteries. As time passes many of liturgical objects from the altar of Putna have been deposited in the Thesaurus Tower (1481 and then exposed to the general public in the monastery museum which was inaugurated in 1976. Refurbished in 2004, the Putna Monastery Museum, located in the west section of the precinct is perhaps the most rich and valuable in the country, with many objects of the time Stephen the Great and from the period his direct descendants. Here are part of artistic and historical treasure of the monastery, consisting of the manuscripts (Tetraevanghelii, Psalter, educational books, Leastviţe, Psaltichii and embroidery made in the monastery workshops (epitaphs, coverings for holy vessels, procovete, dvere, waves of temples, tombs coverings, priestly vestments, religious books, religious objects (sacred vessels, crosses, icons, censers, candles, ceramics, etc. Spiritual value of liturgical of the objects the Putna Monastery Museum analyzed in this study is doubled by the artistic value these amply reflecting the perfect harmony perfect between Cult and Culture in the Middle Age from the Romanian Principalities, between the liturgical function of these objects and Oriental, Byzantine, Gothic and Renaissance elements, with which they were decorated. At that time, perhaps more than ever, Art was Put in the Service of the Supreme Artist – God and His Service ,,as in heaven” by The Angelic Hierarchy ,,so on earth” by The Church Hierarchy.

Il se concentre sur la façon dont le roman réaborde et reformule certaines des questions sur l’identité canadienne qui sont posées avec insistance dans les premiers récits de fiction et essais critiques d’Atwood. L’article s’intéresse, en particulier, à la manière dont les récits d’évolution personnelle s’entrecroisent avec les discours sur l’identité féminine et canadienne dans La Voleuse d’hommes. Il s’agit d’examiner comment les trajectoires d’évolution personnelle explorées dans le roman attirent l’attention sur la relation complexe entre narration et identité, et d’expliquer comment progrès et évolution, dans les romans, sont influencés ou déterminés par un positionnement politique identitaire nationaliste spécifiquement féministe et canadien.

      The authors report and comment data obtained by geochemical and mineralogical studies performed in several conglomerate-type uranium deposits located in South Africa and in Canada. These data display positive correlations between uranium enriching and that of thorium, rare earth notably. They compare the geochemical signature of uraninites of these conglomerates with that of granitoid uraninites of same age which could be their source. Measurements have been performed with an electronic microprobe for uranium oxide species and a ionic microprobe for rare earth contents. Different types of uranium-bearing minerals are identified which correspond to different mechanisms and origins of formation of uraninites

      Numerical analysis of transmission resonances induced by s wave neutrons in time-of-flight experiments can be achieved in a fairly automatic way on an IBM 7094/II computer. The involved computations are carried out following a four step scheme: 1 - experimental raw data are processed to obtain the resonant transmissions, 2 - values of experimental quantities for each resonance are derived from the above transmissions, 3 - resonance parameters are determined using a least square method to solve the over determined system obtained by equalling theoretical functions to the correspondent experimental values. Four analysis methods are gathered in the same code, 4 - graphical control of the results is performed.

      Information on the structure, spectroscopy and target interaction potentials of exotic nuclei can be inferred by interpreting measured data from direct reactions on proton such as elastic or inelastic scattering of proton (p,p') or one-nucleon transfer reaction (p,d). A series of experimental results has been obtained at the GANIL facilities on the setting composed of the MUST telescope array used for the detection of light charged-particles and of CATS beam detectors. This setting aims at measuring reactions on light proton or deuteron targets through reverse kinematics. Particularly, results on C{sup 10}, C{sup 11} and on direct reactions with the He{sup 8} beam of Spiral are presented. The first chapter is dedicated to the description of the most important theories concerning the nucleus. The experimental tools used to probe the nucleus are reported in the second chapter. The third and fourth chapters present the framework that has allowed us to analyse results from (p,p') and (p,d) reactions on weakly bound exotic nuclei. The last chapter is dedicated to the description of future experimental programs. (A.C.)

      Full Text Available Esta pesquisa teve o objetivo de determinar os índices de conforto térmico e a concentração de gases no interior de galpões avícolas e suas influencias sobre o desempenho de frangos de corte comercias, em condições de verão, na região semiárida paraibana. Utilizaram-se dois aviários, um coberto com telha de cerâmica e outro coberto com telha de fibrocimento. Observou-se que não houve diferença significativa (p > 0,05 entre a temperatura ambiente (TA, umidade relativa do ar (UR, temperatura da água de bebida (Tágua e da cama entre os galpões, sendo que os valores médios de TA (das 8h às 17h e UR (das 10h às 16h podem ser considerados fora do limite da zona de termoneutralidade recomendada para frangos de corte, como também a Tágua, no período diurno, ficou acima dos limites recomendados, que é de 24 ºC. Nenhum dos aviários apresentou concentrações de gases que oferecesse insalubridade para as aves e para os trabalhadores. Apesar de a Tágua e de os índices de conforto térmico, nos horários mais quentes do dia, estarem elevados, os índices produtivos ficaram dentro do estabelecido pela indústria avícola brasileira.The aim of this research is to determine the thermal comfort index, the concentration of gases inside the poultry houses and their influence on the performance of commercial broiler chickens, located in the Paraiba's semiarid region, in summer conditions. It was used two poultry houses, one of them covered with a ceramic roof and the other covered with fibrous cement roof. There was no significant difference (p> 0.05 between ambient temperature (AT, relative humidity (RH and temperature of the drinking water (Twater and the chicken litter between the warehouses, but the values average of AT (from 08:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and RH (from10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. can be considered outside the boundary of the comfort zone recommended for chicken broilers, but also the Twater was above the recommended limits, during the day, which is 24º C. None of the chicken broilers showed concentrations of gases that offer an unhealthy ambient to the birds and to the workers. Although the Twater and the index of thermal comfort are elevate during the hottest days, the production indices were within the established for the Brazilian poultry industry.

      Full Text Available This article offers an interpretation of the strange term “base Phrygian Turk” that Pistol uses to insult Falstaff in The Merry Wives of Windsor. If the spectators understand why Slender is called “latten bilbo” (1.1.150 or “Banbury Cheese” (2.2.120, and why Falstaff is called “whale” (2.1.56, “hodge pudding” (5.5.150 or “bag of flax” (5.5.150, this “Base Phrygian Turk” is less transparent and resists interpretation. Using Evelyne Larguèche’s theoretical work on the insulting effect (“l’effet injure”, we ask the question whether there is meaning behind these abusive words or whether their meaning only resides in the speech-act that consists in insulting. Studying the representation of the Islamic world in Elizabethan society and theatre, we show that far from being a mere “pistolism”, this insult suggests that Falstaff “turns Turk” in this play.

      Full Text Available Agronomic evaluation for three Egusi species (Cucurbitaceae used as food in Benin and model analysis for yield prediction. Six varieties of Egusi from three species of cucurbit were evaluated for the fruit and the seed yield at the Agricultural Research Centre of Niaouli (South-Benin. Using randomised blocs, the agronomic characters such as the germination percentage, the fl owering date, the number of fruit per plant, the average fruit weight, the weight of 1,000 unhulled seed, the weight of 1,000 hulled seed, the ratio kernel/seed, the fruit yield, the unhulled seed yield and the hulled seed yield (kg.ha-1 were measured. Out of the six varieties, Aklamkpa (Lagenaria siceraria showed the highest yield for dehulled and unhulled seed. It is followed by Kilonon and Kakoun (Citrullus lanatus which yielded more than 200 kg.ha-1. In contrary Zohan (Cucumeropsis edulis, well appreciated by consumers for its organoleptic qualities, appeared to have the lowest yield in addition to the fact that it is a late variety. The prediction model analysis indicated that the number of fruits per plant and the average fruit weight are good estimators of the unhulled and hulled seed yield and could effectively contribute to the increase of seed yield in egusi crops.

      The instantaneous value of the counting rate of the pulses given by a fission detector settled in a reactor follows the neutron flux, but it is shown that the counter adds a white noise to the measured signal. This report deals with some possibilities of on line numerical handling afforded by this kind of signals. One considers first the influence of a by N numerical divider and one shows that, acting like a quantifier, it adds to the signal a white noise with the power N{sup 2}/{sub 12}. One, studies afterwards the principle of a digital filter aimed to Fourier analyse the signal. The realization of this device is described. It can be used in transfer function measurements at frequencies below 125 kHz. Some examples of experiments performed with this apparatus are presented. One discusses finally the design, according to the same principle, of a power spectral density analyser in the frequency range 0,01 - 10 000 Hz for random signal of the same kind. (author) [French] La valeur instantanee de la frequence de recurrence des impulsions issues d'un detecteur a fission place dans un reacteur est proportionnelle au flux neutronique. Apres avoir montre que le detecteur ajoute un bruit blanc au signal mesure, on etudie clans ce rapport certaines possibilites de traitement numerique en temps reel offertes par ce type de signaux. On examine d'abord l'influence d'un diviseur numerique par N, et l'on montre que son action, semblable a une quantification, ajoute au signal un bruit blanc de puissance N{sup 2}/{sub 12}. On, etudie ensuite le principe d'un filtre numerique destine a effectuer l'analyse de Fourier du signal, et l'on decrit la realisation de cet appareil qui peut etre utilise pour mesurer des fonctions de transfert a une frequence quelconque inferieure a 10 kHz. Des exemples de mesures faites avec cet appareil sont presentes. On discute enfin la possibilite de realiser suivant le meme principe un analyseur de densite spectrale dans la bande de frequence 0,01 Hz - 10 kHz pour des signeaux aleatoirs representes egalement par la frequence de recurrence d'une suite d'impulsions.

      Full Text Available Effectiveness of techniques used to control the development of five invasive amphibious plant species: Crassula helmsii, Hydrocotyle ranunculoides, Ludwigia grandiflora, Ludwigia peploides and Myriophyllum aquaticum. A review. Among rapidly spreading invasive species in Europe, amphibious plants are particularly problematic. These plants are capable of developing a photosynthetic activity both below and above the water surface, and they typically form dense floating populations. Controlling amphibious plants, whether for the purposes of total eradication or for the regulation of their spread, represents an important challenge for managers. A literature review of existing control methods for Crassula helmsii, Hydrocotyle ranunculoides, Ludwigia grandiflora, Ludwigia peploides and Myriophyllum aquaticu was carried out, taking into account efficiency and costs. Of the 87 studies analyzed, a great variation was evident in the research efforts undertaken (number and spatial scale of studies between species and between control methods. However, overall, the different control methods described showed a similar level of efficiency between species. Reports of total eradication of amphibious plants were rare. Such cases resulted from the application of mechanical or chemical methods, most often coupled with complementary methods such as manual finishing. The use of chemical control methods (less laborious and costly than others was found to be frequently documented in the literature. However, except in the case of some active substances, such chemical methods were found to provide low control efficiency. Similarly, to date, biological control has not been found to provide convincing results. In addition, it should be noted that several biological control agents are considered as invasive species in Europe. On the other hand, although little related research has been carried out, methods such as manual or mechanical removal with manual finishing have often been found to result in satisfactory control levels. Aware of the difficulty of controlling amphibious plants, as well as the potential collateral damage caused by control methods to aquatic ecosystems, we argue that consensus still needs to be found between scientists, decision-makers and managers before decisions at regional or national scale can be made.
