  2. Matthieu Cattin (1982 - 2015) - Hervé Milcent (1965 - 2015)


    Hervé Milcent and Matthieu Cattin lost their lives in an avalanche in the Becs de Bosson area of Valais, Switzerland, on Sunday, 12 April. These two mountain sport enthusiasts were clearly very dear to many people, including all those who came to say a final farewell at their funerals, in Thoiry (the Ain) and Breuleux (Jura) respectively.     Hervé Milcent. Hervé arrived at CERN in 1988 under the coopérant scheme (professional work in lieu of French military service) to work on data acquisition systems for the LEP detectors, and was recruited as a staff member in 1996 in the Controls (ECP) group, which later became IT-CO, to work on the control systems for ALICE. Then he joined the LHC-IAS group and was awarded an indefinite contract. Many of the LHC’s monitoring systems owe much of their success to Hervé, who worked assiduously to test and check everything to ensure that all the systems worked from the moment they we...

Il est ici proposé que ce postagma doit être attribué à Matthieu Cantacuzène et daté du 4 décembre 1353 pour les raisons suivantes: a Compte tenu de la politique dynastique de Jean VI Cantacuzène, Matthieu pouvait bien se référer, en 1353, à un ";;;grand père";;; (Michel IX et à un ";;;oncle";;; (Andronic III, tous deux morts avant cette date, b Le ménologe de notre prostagma est différent de ceux de tous les autres empereurs des XIVe et XVe s. c Le prostagma a dû être émis à un moment où Ainos et Kissos se trouvaient sous domination byzantine; or, Ainos fut cédée à Niccolo Gattilusi avant 1382 (probablement entre 1376 et 1379 et Kissos fut définitivement conquis par les Turcs avant 1389; le prostagma doit donc dater avant 1382 - période pendant laquelle le seul empereur byzantin qui pouvait parler d'un oncle à lui qui aurait régné et qui serait déjà décédé est Matthieu Cantacuzène. d En décembre 1353, Matthieu Cantacuzène avait déjà été acclamé empereur; avec son père et coempereur Jean VI, il contrôlait la région d'Ainos et de Kissos; cette situation expliquerait pourquoi les moines lui auraient demandé la confirmation de leurs privilèges.

  6. Meshing human resources planning with strategic business planning: a model approach.

    Baird, L; Meshoulam, I; DeGive, G


    Many people are touting the need to take a strategic approach to human resources management--but this is more easily said than done, point out authors Lloyd Baird, associate professor of management at the School of Management and the Human Resources Policy Institute at Boston University; Ilan Meshoulam, personnel executive at Digital Equipment Corporation; and Ghislaine DeGive, Boston University. Obviously, people cannot be moved around as easily or as speedily as can other resources to help move a company to a strategically identified future position. Thus a great deal of planning is required. The authors present an integrative human resources strategic planning model that focuses on four elements: the environment, the organization's culture, the corporate mission statement, and overall corporate strategy. Each part of the model is thoroughly discussed, and checklist questions are included to help the individual manager develop and implement human resources management plans for his or her own organization.

  8. Trust and diversity: a perspective of organisation

    Ghislain Verstraete


    Full Text Available According to Ghislain Verstraete, we have been deaf and mute too long in the face of the consequences and dangers engendered by our “society of risk”, which he calls the “second modernity”. For everyone (but not in the same way, this second modernity is complex, stimulating, conflictive, as well as provocative in our limited competencies. In the face of the crisis, two reactions are possible: one of a diffuse pessimism which gives rise to a defensive and reactionary attitude, limiting citizen action; another one, of an excessive optimism which takes on an offensive tone, generating more questions and more negotiations and opening a perspective of empowerment. All the organisations have to position themselves in a permanent way in relationship to this defensive/offensive axis, not only in theory but also in practice. But, how can pluralism be conceptualised in this second modernity and how can it be put into practice?

    Types for Proofs and Programs is the annual meeting of the Types Project, whose aim is to develop the technology of formal reasoning and computer programming based on Type Theory. This is done by improving the languages and computerised tools for reasoning, and by applying the technology in several domains such as analysis of programming languages, certified software, formalisation of mathematics and mathematics education. The 2009 meeting took place in Aussois, France, and we thank the invited speakers Richard Garner, Peter Hancock, Pawe{\\l} Urzyczyn for excellent talks. The present volume consists of papers not necessarily presented at the workshop, selected by Thorsten Altenkirch, Tom Hirschowitz, Christophe Raffalli, and Alan Schmitt, with help from Matthieu Sozeau and Makarius Wenzel.

  13. Classical and Umbral Moonshine: Connections and $p$-adic Properties

    Ono, Ken; Trebat-Leder, Sarah


    The classical theory of monstrous moonshine describes the unexpected connection between the representation theory of the monster group $M$, the largest of the simple sporadic groups, and certain modular functions, called Hauptmodln. In particular, the $n$-th Fourier coefficient of Klein's $j$-function is the dimension of the grade $n$ part of a special infinite dimensional representation $V$ of the monster group. More generally the coefficients of Hauptmoduln are graded traces $T_g$ of $g \\in M$ acting on $V$. Similar phenomena have been shown to hold for the Matthieu group $M_{24}$, but instead of modular functions, mock modular forms must be used. This has been conjecturally generalized even further, to umbral moonshine, which associates to each of the 23 Niemeier lattices a finite group, infinite dimensional representation, and mock modular form. We use generalized Borcherds products to relate monstrous moonshine and umbral moonshine. Namely, we use mock modular forms from umbral moonshine to construct via...

  14. Perturbative aspects of the phase diagram of QCD with heavy quarks

    Serreau, Julien; Reinosa, Urko


    We report on recent progress in the description of the phase diagram of QCD with heavy quarks at nonzero temperature and chemical potential in the context of a modified perturbative approach. The latter is based on a simple massive extension of the QCD Lagrangian in the Landau-DeWitt gauge, the background field generalization of the Landau gauge. Here, the background field plays the role of an order parameter for the center symmetry, relevant for confinement-deconfinement transition. One-loop results in this approach give a fairly accurate description of the phase diagram both at real and imaginary chemical potential. We comment on issues related to the sign problem in continuum approaches. Based on works in collaboration with Matthieu Tissier and Nicolás Wschebor.

  16. Geological problems in radioactive waste isolation

    Witherspoon, P.A. (ed.)


    The problem of isolating radioactive wastes from the biosphere presents specialists in the fields of earth sciences with some of the most complicated problems they have ever encountered. This is especially true for high level waste (HLW) which must be isolated in the underground and away from the biosphere for thousands of years. Essentially every country that is generating electricity in nuclear power plants is faced with the problem of isolating the radioactive wastes that are produced. The general consensus is that this can be accomplished by selecting an appropriate geologic setting and carefully designing the rock repository. Much new technology is being developed to solve the problems that have been raised and there is a continuing need to publish the results of new developments for the benefit of all concerned. The 28th International Geologic Congress that was held July 9--19, 1989 in Washington, DC provided an opportunity for earth scientists to gather for detailed discussions on these problems. Workshop W3B on the subject, Geological Problems in Radioactive Waste Isolation -- A World Wide Review'' was organized by Paul A Witherspoon and Ghislain de Marsily and convened July 15--16, 1989 Reports from 19 countries have been gathered for this publication. Individual papers have been cataloged separately.

  19. Tragic loss at CERN

    CERN Ski Club


    Tragic loss at CERN The CERN community is mourning the tragic loss of two members of the CERN Ski Club. On Sunday, April 12, an avalanche buried four out of five skiers, taking part in a ski touring in the region of the Becs de Bosson in Valais (CH). The fifth skier, who had not been buried in the snow,  courageously managed to save two of the skiers, but Hervé Milcent, 49 years, federal ski instructor, and Mattieu Cattin, 33 years, were buried under two to three meters of snow, far down the avalanche slope, and did not survive, despite the fast arrival of the mountain rescue. In its 40 years of existence, the CERN Ski Club, one of the biggest in the Geneva area, has never been confronted with such a tragedy. The passing of Hervé and Matthieu has deeply shocked and saddened all volunteers of the Club as well as the entire alpine community. The ski touring section of the club would like to honour its friend Hervé, who joined the club in 1998. In 2003 he became res...

  1. Épopée biblique entre traduction poétique et commentaire exégétique Biblical épic between poetical translation and exegetical commentary

    Anne Fraïsse


    Full Text Available L’adaptation en hexamètres dactyliques de la vie du Christ à partir de l’Évangile de Matthieu est riche d’enseignement sur les rapports de ce genre littéraire – l’épopée biblique – avec à la fois le texte biblique et la littérature païenne. On assiste à la naissance d’une poésie chrétienne qui s’adresse à un lectorat lettré, mais dans un contexte historique – sous l’empereur Constantin – dans lequel s’impose un sentiment d’allégresse triomphante de la part des chrétiens. Il s’agira ici d’étudier à travers deux passages – la préface et l’épisode de la tempête – la forme et le sens que prend le travail de ré-écriture du poète chrétien.The adaptation in dactylic hexameters of the Christ’s life from the Gospel of Matthew is rich in teaching on the connections betwen this literary genre - the biblical epic - and the biblical text and the pagan literature. We see the birth of a Christian poetry which addresses a well-read readership, but in a historic context - under the emperor Constantin - in which is a wrong feeling of triumphant enjoyment from the Christians. It will be a question here of studying through two passages - the foreword and the episode of the storm - the shape and the sense which takes the work of rewriting of the Christian poet.

When administered in vivo, their biodistribution and pharmacological profile needs to be fully characterized. The tissue distribution of carbon nanotubes and their potential impact on metabolism depend on their shape, coating, and metallic impurities. Because standard radiolabeled or fluorescently-labeled pharmaceuticals are not well suited for long-term in vivo follow-up of carbon nanotubes, alternative methods are required.Methods: In this study, noninvasive in vivo magnetic resonance imaging (MRI investigations combined with high-resolution magic angle spinning (HR-MAS, Raman spectroscopy, iron assays, and histological analysis ex vivo were proposed and applied to assess the biodistribution and biological impact of intravenously injected pristine (raw and purified and functionalized SWCNT in a 2-week longitudinal study. Iron impurities allowed raw detection of SWCNT in vivo by susceptibility-weighted MRI.Results: A transitional accumulation in the spleen and liver was observed by MRI. Raman spectroscopy, iron assays, and histological findings confirmed the MRI readouts. Moreover, no acute toxicological effect on the liver metabolic profile was observed using the HR-MAS technique, as confirmed by quantitative real

Hybrid cinematic devices question the status of images while they evoke the immanent presence of angels – metaphorically the unspeakable and unintelligible.

Ustekinumab prevents the interaction of IL-12 and IL-23 with their cell surface receptors, and thus blocks T helper (Th-1 IL-12 and Th-17 IL-23 inflammatory pathways. Ustekinumab has been evaluated in the treatment of various chronic immune-mediated diseases including, psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis, Crohn's disease, and multiple sclerosis. It led to a rapid and durable improvement in psoriasis area and severity index in patients with moderate to severe psoriasis. Ustekinumab also improved joint symptoms of psoriatic arthritis. Results in Crohn's disease were more mitigated, albeit with a symptomatic improvement in patients refractory to tumor necrosis factor-α inhibitors. Ustekinumab did not reduce the number of magnetic resonance imaging brain lesions in multiple sclerosis. The most common adverse events to have been observed during clinical trials are mild in intensity, and include respiratory tract infections, nasopharyngitis, headaches, and injection site reactions.

The latter involves an alternative oxidase. Though the Plasmodium falciparum alternative oxidase is not yet identified, a specific inhibitor of this enzyme, salicylhydroxamic acid (SHAM, showed a drug effect on P. falciparum respiratory function using oxygen consumption measurements. The present study aimed to highlight the metabolic pathways that are affected in P. falciparum following SHAM exposure.Design: A proteomic approach was used to analyze the P. falciparum proteome and determine the metabolic pathways altered following SHAM treatment. To evaluate the SHAM effect on parasite growth, the phenotypic alterations of P. falciparum after SHAM or/and hyperoxia exposure were observed.Results: After SHAM exposure, 26 proteins were significantly deregulated using a fluorescent two dimensional-differential gel electrophoresis. Among these deregulated proteins

This manuscript reports the first-in-man dose-escalation study of pasireotide, evaluating its safety, tolerability, and pharmacokinetics (PK in healthy male volunteers. A single dose of pasireotide 1–1200 µg was administered subcutaneously in four to eight subjects per dose level, with two additional subjects per cohort administered placebo. PK and safety evaluations were carried out over 7 days post-dose. Growth hormone (GH suppression was evaluated using a GH-releasing hormone stimulation test on Day –1 and Day 1 at 3–5 hours post-injection. Seventy-two subjects completed the study. Pasireotide was well tolerated with no serious adverse events observed at any dose. Transient elevations in blood glucose levels were observed 2–6 hours after administration of pasireotide at doses between 200 µg and 1200 µg, but this resolved without intervention by 23 hours post-dosing. The maximum tolerable dose was not established within the tested range. Pasireotide demonstrated a favorable PK profile with fast absorption (tmax: 0.25–0.5 hours, low clearance (CL/F: 8–13 L/hour, long effective elimination half-life (mean t½,ß: 7–11 hours, and a proportional dose-exposure relationship. GH suppression of 79%–96% was observed at single pasireotide doses between 200 µg and 1200 µg. In conclusion, pasireotide demonstrated favorable safety, tolerability, and PK profiles

  8. Obituary: Robert Mowbray Walker, 1929-2004

    Schoenherr, Neil T.


    Robert M. Walker, PhD, Professor of Physics in Arts & Sciences and a faculty fellow of the McDonnell Center for the Space Sciences, died of stomach cancer Thursday, 12 February 2004, in Brussels, Belgium. He was 75. Walker worked on the frontiers of space research for more than four decades. Robert Walker was born in Philadelphia on 6 February 1929. His mother was Dorothy Potter and he considered Roger Potter his father though he was not his biological father. His early years were spent in New York City and in upstate New York. He attended the Bronx High School of Science, earned his BS in physics from Union College and in 1954, he received his PhD in particle physics from Yale University. He subsequently joined the General Electric Laboratory in Schenectady, New York where he studied the radiation effects in solids. His work on defects in irradiated copper is still regarded as the definitive work on the topic. In the early 1960s, Walker's discovery of fossil nuclear particle tracks in minerals was instrumental to new developments in geo-chronology and cosmic ray physics. In particular, his discovery of tracks from nuclei heavier than iron opened a new frontier of cosmic ray physics. He subsequently pioneered the use of plastics to detect and count such nuclei in cosmic ray balloon flights. Beginning in 1966, when he moved to Washington University and became the first McDonnell Professor of Physics, his research interests turned more toward space physics. He was the inaugural director of the McDonnell Center, which was established in 1975 by a gift from aerospace pioneer James S. McDonnell. Walker was a member of the NASA committee that allocated samples of the first returned lunar materials, and his laboratory led the way in deciphering their record of lunar, solar system and galactic evolution. Together with Ghislaine Crozaz and other colleagues, Walker made path breaking laboratory studies of the first moon rocks revealing the history of solar radiation and

    were performed on forty rock samples in order to determine their mineral compositions and petrophysical properties. Mineral compositions were determined by light and cathodoluminescence petrography (CL), XRD, SEM, EDS and TOC. Effective porosity and permeability were measured by lab tests on cylindrical core samples. Effective porosities measured in sandstones is ranging between 1.5% and 6% with an average of 3.5%, which is nearly twice the value taken in the previous capacity evaluation. The neutron porosity log of the Saint-Ghislain borehole yields porosity values ranging between 5 and 20% of limestone-equivalent porosity; these values suggest higher in-situ porosity, likely due to fractures in the coal measures. Permeability was estimated from lab permeameter tests to a few milli-darcies. Nevertheless this value, which is fairly low for a conventional reservoir, is higher than that of other Westphalian lithologies. Like porosity, in-situ permeability is expected to be higher. Westphalian sandstones mineral compositions shows mainly quartz, feldspars, clay minerals, coal grains that are cemented by either quartz overgrowth or a matrix consisting of fine detrital (mainly clays) and alteration minerals (authigenic carbonates, pyrite, and clays). These results are comparable to investigations of Westphalian C and D sandstones of North Belgium (Bertier et al., 2006). In the case of Westphalian sandstones, it was observed that the effective porosity is essentially located within this fine-grained matrix, explaining their weak permeability. Results from this study show other promising insights for the sequestration of CO2 within Westphalian sandstones of South Belgium. Carbonate minerals, which occur with 2% vol. in average, could significantly increase the porosity and especially the permeability, due to their dissolution by water acidification caused by CO2 injection. Adsorption onto coal fragments and clay minerals in the sandstones has an estimated sequestration

The first edition of this book in French was in 1704, and then it had reprints and reeditions until after 1800. The defined task is to explain the contribution of Mathieu de la Porte for the improvement and spread of the doubled entries and, especially, to register the influence in Portugal, and the borrowing of several pages in “Tratado sobre as Partidas Dobradas”, in Portuguese, edited in Turim, 1764. The influence of this author in Spain, France, and in the Italian Peninsula, is recognized respectively by Hernández Esteve (1996:548 by Anne Fortin (1998:259 and Vlaemminck (1956:131 to 132.
