This paper analyzes the pervasiveness and persistence of rent seeking, misgovernance, and public sector inefficiency in many developing and transition economies. We formalize evidence from country experiences and empirical studies into a stylized analytical framework that reflects realistic constraints faced in these countries. Our work departs from the standard economic literature by assuming that (i) the relationship between the government and its population is regulated through an implicit social consensus; (ii) traditional incentives (in the form of public expenditure controls, sanctions, or monetary incentives to perform) are, for various reasons, ineffective in many of these countries; and (iii) the persistence of high corruption reflects a very stable equilibrium, which in turn reflects the fact that several constraints are simultaneously binding. We argue that, when traditional incentives fail, transparency—information provision and disclosure, together with the means to use it—by relaxing different constraints, can contribute to improving public outcomes.

The urinary bladder of four dogs with emphysematous cystitis was assessed radiographically. Ultrasonography was also performed using a 7.5-MHz microconvex probe in dorsal recumbency and in a standing position. Ultrasonographically there were bright echoes and reverberations typical of gas in all dogs. This was entrapped in the bladder wall as it appeared in the same location in recumbent and standing positions. Bladder size was reduced and bladder content was echogenic in all dogs. In only one out of the four dogs was a gas stripe seen in the bladder on radiographs. Proteus mirahilis was isolated from the urine of all patients. Diabetes was ruled out on the basis of urine and blood analysis. A small amount of gas can be difficult to detect on radiographs. Ultrasonography appears to be a more sensitive technique for detection of gas within the bladder at an early stage of emphysematous cystitis. Prevalence of emphysematous cystitis may be underestimated if only radiographs are made. [less ▲]

Notre mémoire s’est centré sur le rayonnement solaire au Mont Rigi à partir de la grande quantité de paramètres météorologiques engrangés par la nouvelle station météorologique automatique de l’I.R.M. (2001). Jusqu’à ce jour, aucune étude systématique n’avait encore été consacrée à ce beau sujet. Dans la première partie, nous présentons la station et les appareils de mesure en étant surtout soucieuse d’évoquer et d’illustrer les perturbations dont peuvent souffrir les mesures suite aux conditions météorologiques parfois rudes dans les Hautes-Fagnes telles qu’on n’en rencontre pas dans les autres stations automatiques du pays et qui ne sont pas toujours compatibles avec des enregistrements automatiques. La deuxième partie, point central de notre travail, porte sur l’étude de la transparence de l’atmosphère au Mont Rigi avec pour objectif de mettre en évidence les particularités de la composition de l’air de la région et de quantifier son influence sur le rayonnement solaire. Nous avons utilisé les paramètres à notre disposition: la hauteur du soleil, la teneur en vapeur d’eau de l’air (caractérisée par la hauteur d’eau condensable) et la couverture nuageuse. La troisième partie s’intéresse à la variation de l’albédo de la surface sous le pyranomètre, caractérisée par une végétation herbacée et hétérogène, composée d’espèces courantes dans les Hautes-Fagnes (épilobes en épis, myrtille, callune,…). Cette question n'a pas constitué le point central de notre recherche mais étant donné que nous possédions deux ans et demi de mesures en continu d’albédo, il était intéressant d’apporter de nouvelles observations à l’étude de ce paramètre.

Abstract: A better understanding of biotic and environmental factors that regulate the production of active metabolites by beneficial rhizobacteria is crucial for optimising biocontrol under pratical conditions. In this study, we wanted to evaluate the effect of some parameters on the production of the plant defence elicitor synthesized by Pseudomonas putida BTP1. This molecule is clearly dependant of the secondary metabolism and chemostat experiments showed that the elicitor is more efficiently produced at a very low cell growth rate. On another hand, the presence of free amino acids in the medium is necessary to obtain an optimal NABD production. A specific positive effect of phenylalanine was evidenced in pulsed continuous cultures suggesting that this residue could play a role as a precursor and/or act as a regulator in the biosynthetic pathway.

Different methods for the determination of the mechanical durability (DU) of pellets and briquettes were compared by international round robin tests including different laboratories. The DUs of five briquette and 26 pellet types were determined. For briquettes, different rotation numbers of a prototype tumbler and a calculated DU index are compared. For pellets testing, the study compares two standard methods, a tumbling device according to ASAE S 269.4, the Lignotester according to O¨ NORM M 7135 and a second tumbling method with a prototype tumbler. For the tested methods, the repeatability, the reproducibility and the required minimum number of replications to achieve given accuracy levels were calculated. Additionally, this study evaluates the relation between DU and particle density. The results show for both pellets and briquettes, that the measured DU values and their variability are influenced by the applied method. Moreover, the variability of the results depend on the biofuel itself. For briquettes of DU above 90%, five replications lead to an accuracy of 2%, while 39 replications are needed to achieve an accuracy of 10%, when briquettes of DU below 90% are tested. For pellets, the tumbling device described by the ASAE standard allows to reach acceptable accuracy levels (1%) with a limited number of replications. Finally, for the tested pellets and briquettes no relation between DU and particle density was found. [less ▲]

We present our findings based on a detailed analysis of the binaries of the Hyades, in which the masses of the components are well known. We fit the models of the components of a binary system to observations so as to give the observed total V and B-V of that system and the observed slope of the main sequence in the corresponding parts. According to our findings, there is a very definite relationship between the mixing-length parameter and the stellar mass. The fitting formula for this relationship can be given as α= 9.19(M/M[SUB]solar[/SUB]- 0.74)[SUP]0.053[/SUP]- 6.65, which is valid for stellar masses greater than 0.77M[SUB]solar[/SUB]. While no strict information is gathered for the chemical composition of the cluster, as a result of degeneracy in the colour-magnitude diagram, by adopting Z= 0.033 and using models for the components of 70 Tau and θ[SUP]2[/SUP] Tau we find the hydrogen abundance to be X= 0.676 and the age to be 670 Myr. If we assume that Z= 0.024, then X= 0.718 and the age is 720 Myr. Our findings concerning the mixing-length parameter are valid for both sets of the solution. For both components of the active binary system V818 Tau, the differences between radii of the models with Z= 0.024 and the observed radii are only about 4 per cent. More generally, the effective temperatures of the models of low-mass stars in the binary systems studied are in good agreement with those determined by spectroscopic methods. [less ▲]
