    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...

With the increasing number of patients undergoing arthroplasty, there is also an increased risk for arthroplasty infection that may lead to severe complications, poorer outcome, and substantial extra costs for health care systems. Current rates of prosthetic joint infection are not dramatically different from the 1960s or 1970s, but some general principles are now better defined, and their management has been studied extensively during the past decades, thus resulting in a change in clinical practice. The purpose of this review is to summarize important principles of prosthetic joint infection to guide the clinician and to contribute to the optimal diagnosis, prevention, and management of periprosthetic joint infections.

    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...

  2. Manifesto for De-carbonizing Europe

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    2017-01-01

    A month before the first round of the French presidential elections, on 21 March in Paris, the Shift Project, a think-tank on energy transition headed by Matthieu Auzanneau, presented a Manifesto for De-carbonizing Europe. The manifesto, signed in late March by more than 2,500 people - the majority being directors of companies of all sizes and professional organizations, though many are personalities from the French academic world - calls on European states 'to introduce policies capable, by 2050, of reducing greenhouse gas emissions as near as possible to zero'. It also effectively invites candidates in the presidential elections to commit to this course of action. Beyond the borders of France, at a time when President Donald Trump is sending out more than troubling signals to the rest of the world regarding US involvement in the campaign against climate change, the initiative has the virtue of encouraging European states to take a clearly proactive stance on their commitments to the Paris Agreement of late 2015. That proactive attitude is essential to preserve our planet's climate and limit the disruption future generations will have to face. It is also an important signal to the other signatories of the Paris Agreement to honour the commitments made. This is why Futuribles has taken the decision to carry this manifesto for its readers.

To that end, good antimalarial chemotherapies have been difficult to find in the global market and those that seem to be most effective are rapidly becoming ineffective due to the emergence and spread of drug resistance. Artemisinin, a very effective yet expensive antimalarial, has quickly become the recommended drug of choice when all other possibilities fail. However, for all its promise as the next great antimalarial, the outlook is bleak. Resistance is developing to artemisinin while another effective antimalarial is not in sight. Malaria endemic areas which are mostly in developing countries must deal with the multifaceted process of changing and implementing new national malaria treatment guidelines. This requires complex interactions between several sectors of the affected society which in some cases take place within the context of political instability. Moreover, the cost associated with preventing and containing the spread of antimalarial resistance is detrimental to economic progress. This review addresses the impact of artemisinin resistance on the socioeconomic structure of malaria endemic countries.Keywords: artemisinin-based drugs, social, economic, malarial parasite resistance

    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.

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

Despite the prevalence of skin pores, related literature is scarce. With the aim of describing the prevalence of skin pores and anatomic features among ethnic groups, a dermatoscopic instrument, using polarized lighting, coupled to a digital camera recorded the major features of skin pores (size, density, coverage on the cheeks of 2,585 women in different countries and continents. A detection threshold of 250 µm, correlated to clinical scorings by experts, was input into a specific software to further allow for automatic counting of the SP density (N/cm2 and determination of their respective sizes in mm2. Integrating both criteria also led to establishing the relative part of the skin surface (as a percentage that is actually covered by SP on cheeks. The results showed that the values of respective sizes, densities, and skin coverage: 1 were recorded in all studied subjects; 2 varied greatly with ethnicity; 3 plateaued with age in most cases; and 4 globally reflected self-assessment by subjects, in particular those who self-declare having “enlarged pores” like Brazilian women.

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

    monitoring. This 'test site' initiative may be timely and feasible, due to recent technological advances in monitoring sensors, moorings and autonomous data recovery. This will be illustrated here by seminal field datasets recent collected by colleagues from the Squamish River Delta, Bute Inlet, Monterey Canyon, Congo Canyon and offshore SE Taiwan. This talk will conclude with some suggestions for appropriate test sites and collaborative approaches to future data collection. The initial phase of this proposal has been funded by the UK research councils, and input is sought into the design of the broader test site initiative.

    , destacan, entre otras cosas, la prolongada serie de ediciones de este libro, la claridad y esquematización de su exposición, la presentación de libros de contabilidad o la clarificación de los procedimientos para el cierre y la reapertura de cuentas y, en particular su contribución a la clasificación y a la ordenación de las cuentas.These notes are based on the survey of the observations of accredited authors and on the analysis of the book “LA SCIENCE DES NEGOCIANS ET TENEURS DE LIVRES, ou Instruction GENERALE pour ce qui se pratique dans les Comptoirs des Negocians, tant pour les affaires de Banque, que pour les Marchandises; & chez les Financiers pour les Comptes”. 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. In the accounting literature, in not Latin languages, it is not so emphatic the recognition of the influence of Matthieu de la Porte, though it is recognized, for example, in Germany by Dieter Schneider (1998: 278. The publication, in Portugal, of the “Guia de Negociantes ou Novo Tratado sobre os Livros de Contas em Partidas Dobradas”, in 1794, which is a translation of a previous book of “Mr. De la Porte” with the first publication in 1685; the quotation, a reference to justify the authorization of publication of the “Mercador Exacto” of João Baptista Bonavie, of an edition, in 1741, of “Mr. De la Porte”; the fact that many paragraphs of the “Tratado sobre as Partidas Dobradas

    Since 2003, the 'Entretiens europeens' have engaged a dialogue between stakeholders of various socio-professional backgrounds from several countries and with the European Commission, in order to compare the selected options of management and to emphasize the best experiments, which could inspire an innovating European policy in the world. This third edition is intended to provide an updated State-of-play of the reflexions on these issues. These proceedings are organized as follows: 1 - opening talk: Claude Fischer, Head of Entretiens europeens and Jean-Louis Schneiter, Mayor of Reims. 2 - Audition: Francois Lamoureux, Head of DGTREN, European Commission. 3 - First round table 'Democratic issues, various form of consultation and the involvement of the general public in projects' (Chairman: Dr Peter Haug, Head of FORATOM). The idea here is to look at the various forms of information and consultation provided for the general public. We do not want to look at it as opponents do, based on the acceptance or refusal of a laboratory or a disposal site; we want to consider the progress made in research and the actual contracts of agreed objectives, in line with what has been done in Canada. We would then like to reconsider the rights and responsibilities of citizens. A number of questions will be looked at in detail: - a new culture in social relations with regard to information, consultation and assessment: what are the rights, powers and duties of citizens and stakeholders? - legislative process, public debate, right of veto, referendum, opinion poll etc. How do our neighbours tackle the issue? - the involvement of the general public in contracts of agreed objectives - a prerequisite for their success. Intervention: Thomas Flueler, Ecole Polytechnique federale de Zurich (CH) Participants: Jean-Luc Bouzon, General Council of Haute-Marne, vice-president of AEMHM, Torsten Carlsson, former mayor of Oskarshamn, member of KASAM, Sweden, Michel Demet, ANCLI, Ghislain de Marsily

    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
