The present study was aimed at evaluating whether the very high accuracy of memory for familiar faces, demonstrated by Ge et al (2003, Perception 32 601-614) with a very familiar famous person, generalises to faces of personally known individuals. The accuracy of participants' perceptual memory for a close colleague's face and for their own face was evaluated by presenting original and manipulated pictures of these two targets. The manipulation consisted of increasing or decreasing the interocular distance. As in Ge et al's study, results indicated that proportions of correct recognition of the original faces, and just noticeable differences for the detection of alterations in the recognition task, were not significantly different from the corresponding measures in a perceptual discrimination task performed by a sample of participants who did not know the target persons at all. High accuracy of memory generalises to faces of personally known individuals [less ▲]

Eight kinds of typical coal samples were chosen for studying the influence of coal characteristics on laser—induced plasmas.Element analysis and industry analysis were carried out for every sample.Experimental study on the interaction between laser and different coal samples was completed,and factors affecting laser plasma were analyzed,such as coal moisture and coal dust.The experiment result indicates that the coal samples with different coalification degrees have different plasma time—resolved spectral characteristics,all of them tend to rise at the beginning of plasma formation (< 1us),then with the decay of plasmas emission.they tend to decrease in about 1us,while secondary ionization occurs in highly coalificated coals after 2 us.The plasma temperature differs from one kind to another,the higher the coalification degree is,the higher the plasma temperature will be.

The second study on tight glycaemia control by intensive insulin therapy (IIT) confirmed in medical intensive care unit patients the decrease in hospital mortality reported by the same team in the first IIT trial in surgical patients. However, methodological concerns, the high rate of hypoglycaemia in spite of the infusion of large doses of parenteral glucose and the frequent use of steroids presently preclude considering these results as recommendations in other intensive care units, but rather argue for the need for large-scale assessment of the IIT approach by multi-centre studies to confirm the efficacy and safety of this therapeutic modality.

Purpose - Mechanical stress can heavily affect the magnetic behaviour law in ferromagnetic materials. This paper, aims to take into account the effect of mechanical stress into a hystreresis model. This model is implemented in a finite element analysis code and tested in the case of a simple system. Design/methodology/approach - A simple extension of the classical Preisach model is proposed, in which a function linked to the Preisach density is parameterized using the mechanical stress as a supplementary parameter. The methodology is based on experimental measurements for identifying the required function. As a first approach, a linear interpolation is used between the measurements in order to have a continuous evolution of the magneto-mechanical behaviour. This model has been tested in the case of a steel sheet in which width is not constant in order to obtain a non-uniform distribution of stress and magnetic flux density. Findings - The model can predict the magneto-mechanical behaviour with a good accuracy in the case of tensile stress. Implementation of the model in finite element analysis has shown that the model can predict the behaviour of steel sheet subject to a non-uniform stress distribution. Originality/value - This paper shows that a classical hysteresis model can be extended to take into account the magneto-mechanical behaviour. This is useful for the design of electrical machines which are subject to non-negligible mechanical stress. [less ▲]

The baryon spectra are discussed in the context of the $1/N_c$ expansion approach, with emphasis on mixed symmetric states. The contributions of the spin dependent terms as a function of the excitation energy are shown explicitly. At large energies these contributions are expected to vanish. [less ▲]

L’analyse d’un pedigree combiné a permis d’étudier la variabilité et les liens génétiques entre les 2 populations luxembourgeoise et tunisienne. L’extraction et l’ajout de plusieurs ancêtres a permis une amélioration des profondeurs des 2 pedigrees. Cependant, la connaissance des pedigrees reste partielle pour les 2 populations malgré cette consolidation. L’intervalle de génération de la voie mère-fille reste similaire pour les 2 populations. Par contre, l’intervalle de génération père-fille était différent entre les 2 populations. En effet, il était plus élevé et de l’ordre de 9 ans pour le cas de la population Holstein tunisienne, mais il n’a pas dépassé les 7 ans chez la population luxembourgeoise. Les coefficients de consanguinité ont été estimés selon une approche modifiée de la méthode de Meuwissen et Luo (1992). Les niveaux de consanguinité enregistrés sont similaires à la majorité des valeurs et trends obtenus dans la plupart des études menées sur la Holstein dans le monde. Ces niveaux et pour le cas des 2 populations restent faibles jusqu’à la fin des années 1980, mais augmentent considérablement après les années 1990 d’une manière plus accentuée chez la population femelle tunisienne. Les 2 populations sont caractérisées par des nombres réduits de fondateurs efficaces et d’ancêtres efficaces. 8 parmis les 10 ancêtres ayant la contribution marginale la plus élevée à chacune des 2 populations femelles de référence restent identiques mais avec des contributions appropriées à chacune d’elles. Ces ancêtres ont contribué à plus de 32% au patrimoine génétique des 2 populations femelles de référence. La parenté moyenne entre les 2 populations femelles ainsi que celle estimée entre les taureaux utilisés par ces 2 populations entre 1990 et 2000 montre que ces dernières sont bien connectées. Ceci permettra une investigation des interactions génotype x environnement basée sur la similarité et la parenté génétique entre ces 2 populations. [less ▲]

The space mission PEGASE, proposed to the CNES (Centre National d'Etudes Spatiales = French Space Agency) in the framework of its call for scientific proposals : "formation flying missions", is a 2-aperture interferometer, composed by 3 free flying satellites (2 siderostats and 1 beam combiner), allowing baselines from 50 to 500 m in both nulling and visibility modes. With an angular resolution of a few mas and a spectral resolution of several tens in the spectral range 2.5-5 microns, PEGASE has several goals:science : spectroscopy of hot jupiters (Pegasides) and brown dwarves, exploration of the inner part of protoplanetary diskstechnology : validation in real space conditions of formation flying, nulling and visibility interferometry concepts.PEGASE has been studied at a 0-level. In this paper, we summarize the scientific program and associated technological and mission trade-off coming from this 0-level study. We also discuss how PEGASE can be considered as a TPF/DARWIN pathfinder in an international roadmap towards more complex space interferometry missions such as DARWIN/TPF. [less ▲]

In Egypt, high temperatures, humidity and dusty hot winds lead to excessive discomfort for people. Contemporary designers do not integrate landscape architecture as a way to improve the micro climate of the outdoor built environment, in addition to the inappropriate use of energy resources ,while in Egypt’s hot arid climates, it is essential to ameliorate the microclimate in an energy efficient way. Landscape architects must fully understand that Egypt has one of the harshest and most limiting environments on earth. Therefore, the role of landscape architect is essential in creating a more favourable outdoor environment for people with regard to their inner living space: adequate shade, cooler temperatures, light breezes, protection from glare and wind blown sand. The main aim of this thesis was to provide landscape architects with design principals and design guidelines to improve the microclimate and conserve energy in Egypt. The thesis could be described as horizontal overview that describes historical and recent design solutions that tackle with the problem of aridity and resources scarcity. The research was guided by a design problem that was intended to steer the research in order to come out with the knowledge needed in correspondence to the design problem. The location of the case study or design was in Egypt’s eastern desert and the selection was made based in the aridity and harshness of the project location. This study was divided into 6 parts: (1) Research Design, (2) Background, (3) Lessons from historical landscape design examples, (4) Contemporary Landscape design principals and guidelines, (5) Case Study and (6) Conclusion.

This paper studies the design of a pay-as-you-go social security system in an overlapping generations model where fertility is in part stochastic and in part determined through capital investment. If investments are publicly observable, pension benefits must be linked positively to the level of investment, and payroll taxes negatively to the number of children. The outcome is characterized by full insurance with all parents, regardless of their number of children, enjoying identical consumption levels. Without observability, benefits must increase, and payroll taxes decrease, with the number of children. The second-best level of investment, and the resulting average fertility rate, are less than their corresponding first-best levels. (c) 2006 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved. [less ▲]
