In this article, we use data on five social inclusion indicators (poverty, inequality, unemployment, <br />education and health) to assess and compare the performance of 15 European <br />welfare states (EU15) over a 12-year period from 1995 to 2006. Aggregate measures of <br />performance are obtained using index number methods similar to those employed in the <br />construction of the widely used Human Development Index. These are compared with <br />alternative measures derived from data envelopment analysis methods. The influence of <br />methodology choice and the assumptions made in scaling indicators upon the results <br />obtained is illustrated and discussed. We then analyse the evolution of performance <br />over time, finding evidence of some convergence in performance and no sign of social <br />dumping. [less ▲]

The prescriptive component of stereotypes is defined as a set of beliefs about the characteristics group members should possess. It has mainly been studied regarding gender stereotypes. We believe that the main function of this prescriptive component is to allow dominant group members to maintain subordinate group members in an advantageous position for themselves. To illustrate our proposal, we present several theoretical and empirical papers, showing that the relative status of social groups is a determinant of which characteristics are prescribed to the members of these groups; that subordinates who fail to conform to the prescription are sanctioned; and that dominants prescribe to subordinates characteristics they see as beneficial to their own group.

Recently, new cycles, associated with periods of 30 and 43 months, respectively, have been observed by the authors in surface air temperature time series, using a wavelet-based methodology. Although many evidences attest the validity of this method applied to climatic data, no systematic study of its efficiency has been carried out. Here, we estimate confidence levels for this approach and show that the observed cycles are significant. Taking these cycles into consideration should prove helpful in increasing the accuracy of the climate model projections of climate change and weather forecast. [less ▲]

Plus de cinquante ans après leur mise sur le marché, les sulfamidés hypoglycémiants font toujours partie du traitement de base du diabète non insulinodépendant. A côté de leurs remarquables propriétés pharmacologiques, ces produits ont, à différentes reprises, été tenus responsables d’hypoglycémies sévères survenant de manière inexpliquée chez des sujets non diabétiques. Ce type d’hypoglycémie, qualifiée de factice, est notamment fréquemment retrouvée dans le syndrome de Munchausen, trouble psychiatrique poussant le malade à mimer une pathologie. Cette hypoglycémie est associée à un hyperinsulinisme endogène simulant une pathologie endocrine très rare, l’insulinome. Nous souhaitons faire connaître aux Cliniciens l’intérêt de la recherche et du dosage sanguin des sulfamidés hypoglycémiants dans le cadre du diagnostic différentiel des hyperinsulinismes. La mise en évidence d’une hypoglycémie induite par ces médicaments constitue un élément intéressant pour orienter le diagnostic et éventuellement éviter une pancréatectomie en cas de forte suspicion d’insulinome. La méthode analytique développée au laboratoire s’appuie sur la chromatographie liquide ultra performante couplée à la spectrométrie de masse tandem (UPLC -MS -MS ). Par cette technique, on peut mettre en évidence dans le sang une dizaine de sulfonylurées et le répaglinide. Elle constituera à l’avenir une méthode de choix face à toute suspicion de mésusage des sulfonylurées. [less ▲]

In rodent species, sexual differentiation of the brain for many reproductive processes depends largely on estradiol. This was recently confirmed again by using the α-fetoprotein knockout (AFP-KO) mouse model, which lacks the protective actions of α-fetoprotein against maternal estradiol and as a result represents a good model to determine the contribution of prenatal estradiol to the sexual differentiation of the brain and behavior. In the present study, we determined whether parental responses are differentiated prenatally under the influence of estradiol. It was found that AFP-KO females showed longer latencies to retrieve pups to the nest and also exhibited lower levels of crouching over the pups in the nest in comparison to WT females. Thus our results suggest that prenatal estradiol defeminizes the parental brain in mice. [less ▲]
