The vortex dynamics in superconducting films deposited on top of a fivefold Penrose array of magnetic dots is studied by means of transport measurements. The authors show that in the low pinning regime (demagnetized dots) a few periodic and aperiodic matching features coexist. In the strong pinning regime (magnetized dots) a richer structure of unforeseen periodic and aperiodic vortex patterns appear, giving rise to a clear enhancement of the critical current in a broader field range. Possible stable vortex configurations are determined by molecular dynamics simulations. (c) 2006 American Institute of Physics. [less ▲]

Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS), a non-invasive technique allowing stimulating neurons in the cerebral cortex, is able to modify durably local as well as distant neuronal activity. Results obtained by stimulation of the primary motor cortex and measurements of induced muscle responses suggest that effects on cortical excitability depend on stimulation frequency and intensity, as welt as of pulse-train duration. Such data, as welt as results of animal studies have brought a physiological basis for the use of rTMS for treatment of various neurological and psychiatric disorders, and particularly depression. Nevertheless, as tong as large randomized studies have not been conducted, rTMS should not replace other existing and validated therapies. (c) 2006 Elsevier Masson SAS. All rights reserved. [less ▲]

In this paper we review the current knowledge on pulmonary hypertension (PH) occurring in COPD. PH is defined as a mean pulmonary arterial pressure at rest greater than 20 mmHg measured by right heart catheterisation. PH is usually present during exercise before appearing at rest. PH in COPD increases the risk of hospitalisation and darkens the disease prognosis. Chronic hypoxemia is the major contributor to PH, but remodelling of arterial wall and mechanical factors such as hyperinflation also play a role. Transthoracic echocardiography is the most useful non invasive investigation, but right heart catheterisation is necessary to ascertain the diagnosis. Long term 02 supplementation is the basis of the treatment while vasodilatators may worsen hypoxemia. [less ▲]

Animal performance, composition and quality of meat from Belgian Blue bulls either fattened indoors (FI) or finished indoors after a previous grazing period were studied during six years. During the grazing period, three intensification managements were tested on a permanent pasture conducted as set stocking. The intensification levels were either high (HN:140 kg N(.)ha(-1) with 6 bulls(.)ha(-1)) or moderate with a 33% reduction of nitrogen fertilisation but with the same stocking rate (MN:93 kg N(.)ha(-1), 6 bulls(.)ha(-1)) or low with no nitrogen fertiliser but with a reduced stocking rate (ON, 4 bulls(.)ha(-1)). The levels of intensification did not affect sward characteristics and chemical composition of the grass. The apparent nitrogen efficiency per ha was larger in the ON plot than in the HN and MN plots ( 26 vs. 14%). The average daily gain of bulls during the grazing season was similar in the three groups at 1.0 kg(.)d(-1). The bulls from the FI group were characterised by average daily gains significantly higher than the bulls which were previously grazed and then finished indoors (1.5 vs. 1.2 kg(.)d(-1); P < 0.01). The slaughter weight, the carcass composition, the dressing percentage and most of the meat quality parameters were similar between the treatment groups. The inclusion of a grazing period in the fattening system produced a meat which was darker (lower L*, P < 0.01), more red (higher a*, P < 0.05) and had a higher content of linolenic acid (C18:3 n-3) than that of the animals fattened indoors.

The first purpose of this paper was to analyse the psychometric properties of the French version of the most frequently used survey for measuring work-home interaction, i.e. the Survey Work-home Interaction – Nijmegen (SWING). The second purpose was to determine the direction of influence (with an origin in one domain – work or home- and an impact in the other domain) and the quality of impact (being positive or negative). The third objective was to check the consistency of the scores across relevant sub-groups such as gender and working time. Three cross-sectional surveys (in total, N=254) were conducted. The French version of the SWING, including 24 items, presents acceptable internal consistency and reliability coefficients. The direction of work-home interaction shows a positive impact of work in the family domain. Finally there is some evidence for relevant gender and working time effects. The clinical interest of this questionnaire is also discussed. [less ▲]

A primitive equation model and a statistical predictor are coupled by data assimilation in order to combine the strength of both approaches. In this work, the system of two-way nested models centred in the Ligurian Sea and the satellite-based ocean forecasting (SOFT) system predicting the sea surface temperature (SST) are used. The data assimilation scheme is a simplified reduced order Kalman filter based on a constant error space. The assimilation of predicted SST improves the forecast of the hydrodynamic model compared to the forecast obtained by assimilating past SST observations used by the statistical predictor. This study shows that the SST of the SOFT predictor can be used to correct atmospheric heat fluxes. Traditionally this is done by relaxing the model SST towards the climatological SST. Therefore, the assimilation of SOFT SST and climatological SST are also compared. (c) 2006 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved. [less ▲]

La méthodologie retenue consistait à déterminer les performances thermiques des PMR, d’une part, sur la base de mesures en laboratoire (dans des conditions aux limites stationnaires) et, d’autre part, sur la base de mesures réalisées dans des cellules d’essai soumises à des conditions extérieures réelles (régime par essence non stationnaire). Les résultats de ces deux types de mesures ont été comparés entre eux ainsi qu’à des résultats de calculs réalisés onformément aux normes en vigueur. [less ▲]

In this paper I review the operation of the exception clause provided in Article 19 of the Belgian Code of Private International Law (Act of 16 July 2004 entered into force on 1st of October 2004). Much has been written on the need but also on the risks associated with such exception clauses. The introduction of this mechanism has been much criticized in Belgian scholarly works (among others by Barnich). I attempt to downplay or nuance some of the criticisms by showing that when properly applied, the exception clause does not call into question the operation of other conflict of laws rules. In order to do so, I analyze the main requirements of Article 19, in the light of the foreign experiences with similar mechanisms (inter alia the Swiss experience and the experience of the 1980 Rome Convention).
