The success of the notion of 'control' proposed by Deleuze and later developped by Negri and Hardt tends to obliterate its literary origins, ie. the work of William S. Burroughs. Yet, the American writer's logic of Control is based on the same ambivalent representation of power as a hold, according to which freedom is a mere lever serving to act upon an individual's possible actions. Restoring this Burroughsian filiation of Control emphasizes its counter-fictional dimension: in an outsideless word, practices such as cut-up or simulacrum reinvent our capacity of action. [less ▲]

Yasmin (Schering AG, Berlin, Germany), a new oral contraceptive containing 30 microg ethinylestradiol combined with 3 mg drospirenone, effectively inhibits ovulation, as demonstrated by measurement of plasma hormone levels (follicle stimulating hormone, luteinizing hormone, estradiol and progesterone), and echographic evaluation of follicular ripening. Like other low-dose oral contraceptives, the combination of ethinylestradiol and drospirenone markedly limits cervical function, spinnbarkeit and degree of crystallization, resulting in a hostile environment for sperm penetration. Two large, randomized, multicenter, open-label clinical studies have compared the contraceptive efficacy of ethinylestradiol/drospirenone with that of Marvelon, a well-established contraceptive containing 30 microg ethinylestradiol plus 150 microg desogestrel. Both preparations provided effective contraception and good cycle control. There were no negative effects on hemostatic parameters, lipids and carbohydrate metabolism. However, in both studies, ethinylestradiol/drospirenone had a more favorable effect on body weight than ethinylestradiol/desogestrel, with mean body weight remaining lower in the ethinylestradiol/ drospirenone group, the difference between the two preparations being statistically significant. Pre-existing acne and seborrhea were improved by ethinylestradiol/ drospirenone and blood pressure was essentially unchanged. These studies show that ethinylestradiol/drospirenone provides effective oral contraception, excellent cycle control and good tolerability, with effects on body weight and skin condition that are likely to confer a significant beneficial effect on compliance, especially in women with a tendency to gain weight under oral contraceptives due to water retention.

In the French urban public transport industry, operations are often delegated and periodically put out for tender. Thus, operators’ incentives to reduce costs come from both profit maximization during the current contract and from the perspective of contract renewal. We construct a dynamic incentive regulation model that captures these features and we show that both the level of cost-reducing effort and its repartition during the contracting period depend on the contract type (cost-plus, gross cost or net cost contract). We then estimate a cost frontier model for an eight-year panel of French bus companies (664 company-year observations) to test our predictions. [less ▲]

The acid-sensitive, two-pore domain K(+) channel, TASK-1, contributes to the background K(+) conductance and membrane potential (Em) of rat and human pulmonary artery (PA) smooth muscle cells (SMC), but its role in regulating tone remains elusive. This study aimed to clarify the role of TASK-1 by determining the functional properties of PA from mice in which the TASK-1 gene was deleted (TASK-1/3 KO), in comparison with wild type (WT) C57BL/6 controls. Small vessel wire myography was used to measure isometric tension developed by intact PA. Em and currents were recorded from freshly isolated PASMC using the perforated patch-clamp technique. Reverse-transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) was used to estimate K(+) channel expression. We could find no difference between PA from WT and TASK-1/3 KO TASK KO mice. They showed similar constrictor responses to a range of agonists and K(+) concentrations, the K(+) channel blockers 4-aminopyridine, tetraethylammonuim ions and XE991. Treprostinil, proposed to dilate by activating TASK-1, was just as effective in TASK-1/3 KO arteries. Blocking Ca(2+) influx with nifedipine (1 muM) or levcromakalim (10 muM) had no effect on resting tone in either strain. The resting Em of PASMC and its responses to K(+) channel blockers were unchanged in TASK-1/3 KO mice as were voltage-activated K(+) currents, including the non-inactivating K(+) current (I(KN)) measured at 0 mV. The Em was, however, depolarised in comparison with other species. Mouse I(KN) was much smaller than in rat and showed no sensitivity to pH. The results imply that TASK-1 does not form a functional channel in mouse PASMC. [less ▲]

Background: The presence of viable myocardium may predict response to cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT). The aim of this study is to evaluate in patients with left ventricular (LV) dyssynchrony whether response to CRT is related to myocardial viability in the region of the pacing lead. Methods: Forty-nine consecutive patients with advanced heart failure, LV ejection fraction < 35%, QRS duration > 120 ms and intraventricular asynchronism ≥ 50 ms were included. Dobutamine stress echocardiography was performed within the week before CRT implantation. Resting echocardiography was performed 6 months after CRT implantation. Viability in the region of LV pacing lead was defined as the presence of viability in two contiguous segments. Response to CRT was defined by evidence of reverse LV remodeling (≥15% reduction in LV end-systolic volume). Results: Thirty-one patients (63%) were identified as responders at follow-up. The average of viable segments was 5.9 ± 2 in responders and 3.2 ± 3 in nonresponders (P = 0.0003). Viability in the region of the pacing lead had a sensitivity of 94%, a specificity of 67%, a positive predictive value of 83%, and a negative predictive value of 86% for the prediction of response to CRT. Conclusions: In patients with LV dyssynchrony, reverse remodeling after CRT requires viability in the region of the pacing lead. This simple method using echocardiography dobutamine for the evaluation of local viability (i.e., viability in two contiguous segments) may be useful to the clinician in choosing the best LV lead positioning.

An important issue in the management of supply chains and manufacturing systems is to achieve the desired customer service level while respecting the individual economic objectives of the partners. These objectives are generally antagonistic and can lead to contradictory choices in the context of a network with a high degree of local decisional autonomy. The challenge involved is to determine a coordination mechanism that avoids global loss of economic efficiency and to solve nonlinear optimization problems that capture the key dynamics of a complex production/inventory system. This study investigates a two-stage serial supply chain with one manufacturer and one supplier. The manufacturer, producing goods to serve a Poisson demand process, procures a key component from his supplier. At each production facility, the successive processing times of the units are independent exponential random variables. In the decentralized setting considered, each firm manages the local production/inventory control system while attempting to maximize his own steady state expected profit. The main operational decision at each stage is the level of the inventory control parameter. In the game theory framework, the partners play a two-stage game of the Stackelberg type. The manufacturer leads the game by setting the component purchasing price as a function of the observed lateness of delivery. In the considered make-to-stock queuing system, the production facility of the supplier behaves as an M/M/1 queue. However, the departure of units from the finished-goods inventory of the supplier is not a Poisson process. In order to derive closed form results, the method of Lee and Zipkin (1992) is used to approximate the limiting probabilities of the second stage production process. The supplier’s profit function is concave and the optimal action of the supplier can be correctly anticipated by the manufacturer. The manufacturer’s constrained optimization problem consists of determining the optimal values of the contract parameters and the second stage base-stock level. It is shown that using the defined contracting scheme, the system optimal solution is obtained as the Stackelberg equilibrium. [less ▲]

This paper establishes a global contraction property for networks of phase-coupled oscillators characterized by a monotone coupling function. The contraction measure is a total variation distance. The contraction property determines the asymptotic behavior of the network, which is either finite-time synchronization or asymptotic convergence to a splay state. © 2012 Elsevier B.V.
