We investigate the implications of venture capital (VC) investor type (government or private) on the operating efficiency of a sample of 515 Belgian portfolio firms up to 3 years after the investment. We find that the government VC-backed firms display significant reductions in productivity. No significant differences in efficiency are found in firms backed by private VC compared with their non-VC-backed peers. Finally, significant reductions in efficiency exist in targets of government VC compared to their non-VC-backed peers. [less ▲]

In this paper, we show that the Triassic fossil record reflects just two great depletions of conodont diversity before the Rhaetian, which occurred in the Smithian (Olenekian, Early Triassic) and in the Julian (Carnian, Late Triassic). By exploring this context, our results highlighted that they respond to different origination-extinction dynamics. Thus, while the Smithian diversity depletion can be interpreted as a consequence of elevated extinction, the Julian diversity depletion was triggered by fluctuations in origination regime. This evidence suggests that, despite the role of extinction on diversity losses, conodonts suffered crucial changes on the origination regimes during the Late Triassic which triggered these events. Notwithstanding, our results indicate that the end-Triassic diversity depletion of conodonts was produced by background extinction levels in a context of lower origination. This suggests that several biological factors, rather than a unique, environmental and/or cyclic cause, could have influenced the evolutionary history of conodonts during the Triassic. © 2014 © 2014 Taylor & Francis.

The article is a retranslation attempt of a Cameroon Fulani 'Mbooku' poem previously transcribed from oral material and translated into English by the Japanese scholar Paul K. Eguchi in 1992. It aims at showing how (re)translation is important for such 'endangered' literature like African oral poems. Moreover, it contributes in introducing primary oral literature to the field of translation studies. [less ▲]

Background: Burn patients are at risk of vitamin D (VD) deficiency and may benefit from its pleiotropic effects as soon as acute phase. Aim of this observational study was to assess effects of a cholecalciferol (VD3) bolus on VD status in adult burn patients (Group B, GB) after admission, compared to healthy subjects (Group H, GH). Methods: Both groups received an oral dose of 100,000 IU VD3. Blood samples were collected before (D0) and 7 days (D7) after bolus to measure 250H-D, 1,25(OH)2-D, parathyroid hormone (PTH) and fibroblast growth factor 23 (FGF23). Albumin (ALB) and VD binding protein (DBP) were measured and used to calculate free 25OH-D level. Data were expressed as median (min–max) or proportions. Results: A total of 49 subjects were included: 29 in GH and 20 in GB. At D0, prevalence of VD deficiency was higher in GB: 25OH-D was 21.5 (10.1–46.3) ng/ml in GH vs 11 (1.8–31.4) ng/ml in GB. DBP and ALB were lower in GB. At D7, DBP was stable in both groups while ALB decreased in GB. 25OH-D increased by 66.6 (13.5–260.3)% in GH. In GB, changes in 25OH-D extended from 36.7% to 333.3% with a median increase of 33.1%. Similar changes were observed in each group for free 25OH-D. High FGF23 levels were observed in GB. Conclusions: This study highlighted the differences in VD status and in response to a high dose VD3 in burn patients when compared to healthy patients. Pitfalls in VD status assessment are numerous during acute burn care: 25OH-D measurement needs cautious interpretation and interest of free 25OH-D is still questionable. They should not prevent burn patients to receive VD supplements during acute care. Higher doses than general recommendations should probably be considered. [less ▲]

This communication aims at assessing the bias introduced by the use of the Euclidean distance in the context of geographic profiling analyzes. It proceeds by a comparison of road and Euclidean distances of about 1 000 pairs of origin-destination (crime sites – criminal’s anchor point) from the database of the Belgian Federal Police. Comparisons are differentiated by the density of road network (rural and urban areas) and the statistical parameters of the resulting distributions are exploited in the application of the most common geographic profiling model called the distance decay model.

La plupart des études sur la connexion entre alimentation et migration sont assez récentes. Elles mettent tout d’abord en évidence le fait que, lors d’un déplacement, les individus ou les groupes sont confrontés à des styles alimentaires différents. Ces recherches s’engagent alors à vérifier dans quelle mesure cette rencontre défie l’identité individuelle (Cardona, 2004; Crenn, 2004; Spiro, 1955) et quelles pratiques elle engage afin de la préserver (Hage, 1997; Beyers, 2008; Diner and Diner, 2009). L’attention est ainsi portée au contexte domestique dans lequel les familles issues de la migration préparent leurs repas et, potentiellement, définissent leur appartenance culturelle. Une deuxième direction entreprise par ces études, concerne par contre l’espace public : par exemple, les ainsi dits « restaurants ethniques » font l’objet de nombreuses recherches qui visent cette fois à analyser la consommation de l’ « exotique » de la part des membres de la population majoritaire (Hassoun & Raulin, 1995; Régnier, 2005). Ces deux dimensions principales sont rarement abordées dans leur superposition, fait qui laisse dans l’ombre des dynamiques pareillement pertinentes. Notamment, nous pourrions relever les enjeux liés à la préparation de nourriture conçue comme pratique du quotidien destinée à être exportée en contexte non-domestique et offerte à des individus qui, non seulement ne font pas partie de la famille de ceux qui cuisinent, mais sont aussi associés à une appartenance culturelle différente. L’étude de ces enjeux amène à constater que la définition active de soi au travers de la pratique culinaire s’entremêle à la volonté d’en transmettre une image aux autres. En particulier, lorsqu’on adopte une perspective de genre et que l’on focalise l’attention sur les femmes migrantes, nous sommes amenés à noter comment un de ces savoir-faire qui constituent des potentiels dispositifs de domestication (Rogers, 1981) se transforme en instrument de visibilité, et ainsi de participation, dans l’espace public. Dans cet article, afin de mettre en évidence la complexité de ces dynamiques, je présenterai en clef comparative des exemples collectés dans le cadre de mes recherches autour du lien entre alimentation et migration. J’analyserai les pratiques culinaires exercées en contexte public d’un côté par un groupe de femmes marocaines résidentes en Italie, de l’autre par certaines femmes italiennes résidentes en Belgique. La comparaison des choix des femmes, faits en fonction des destinataires mais aussi en réponse aux différents contextes sociopolitiques dans lesquels certaines manifestations culinaires prennent la forme de « rencontres interculturelles », permettra de donner un aperçu sur la façon dont les femmes considérées s’assurent une place active dans l’espace vécu. Le texte sera illustré par des images collectées durant l’ethnographie. [less ▲]

The purpose of the maxT algorithm (1993) is to control the family-wise error rate (FWER) when assessing significance of multiple tests jointly. However, the requirements in terms of computing time and memory of this procedure are proportional to the number of investigated hypothesis. The memory issue has been solved by Van Lishout’s implementation of maxT (2013), which makes the memory usage independent from the size of the dataset. This algorithm is implemented in MBMDR-3.0.3, a software that is able to identify genetic interactions, for a variety of SNP-SNP based epistasis model,s in an effective way. However, that implementation turned out to be less suitable for genome-wide interaction analysis studies, due to the prohibitive computational burden. Here, we present gammaMAXT, a novel algorithm which is part of MBMDR-4.2.2. We show that, in the abscence of interaction effects, test-statistics produced by the MB-MDR methodology follow a mixture distribution with a point mass at zero and a shifted gamma distribution for the top 10% of the strictly positive values. We show that the gammaMAXT algorithm has a power comparable to maxT and maintains FWER, but requires less computational resources and time. MBMDR-4.2.2 can be downloaded at http://www.statgen.ulg.ac.be. [less ▲]
