On 4 July 2005, many observatories around the world and in space observed the collision of Deep Impact with comet 9P/Tempel 1 or its aftermath. This was an unprecedented coordinated observational campaign. These data show that (i) there was new material after impact that was compositionally different from that seen before impact; (ii) the ratio of dust mass to gas mass in the ejecta was much larger than before impact; (iii) the new activity did not last more than a few days, and by 9 July the comet's behavior was indistinguishable from its pre-impact behavior; and (iv) there were interesting transient phenomena that may be correlated with cratering physics.

Objective: To evaluate the cumulative pregnancy rate (CPR) per patient after in vitro fertilization/intracytoplasmic sperm injection (IVF-ICSI) cycles in patients with endometriomas and to evaluate the determinant factors of CPR per patient. Design: Retrospective study from January 2007 to October 2008. Setting: Tertiary care university hospital. Patient(s): 103 patients who had undergone IVF treatment, comprising isolated endometriomas (n 1⁄4 30) and endometriomas with associated deep infiltrating endometriosis (DIE) (n 1⁄4 73). Intervention(s): None. Main Outcome Measure(s): Clinical pregnancy rate after IVF-ICSI cycle. Result(s): Thetotalnumberofcycleswas162,andthemediannumberofcyclesperpatientwas1(1to5).Fifty-eightwomen(56.3%)becamepregnant. The total number of endometriomas and size of the largest endometrioma and bilateral endometriomas had no impact on the CPR per patient. Using multivariable analysis, the associated DIE and antimu€llerian hormone serum level (%1 ng/mL) were independent factors associated with a decrease in the pregnancy rate per patient. Overall, the CPR per patient was 73.7%, and it increased until the third cycle with no benefit for additional cycles. The CPR per patient for women with isolated endometriomas and women with endometriomas and associated DIE was 82.5% and 69.4%, respectively. Conclusion(s): Associated DIE has a negative impact on assisted reproduction results in patients with endometriomas. Moreover, our data show that after three IVF-ICSI cycles the CPR per patient is not improved and that surgery should be considered [less ▲]

Evolutionary models for massive stars which take into account rotational mixing effects do not predict any core-processed material at the surface of B dwarfs with low rotational velocities. We present a detailed and fully homogeneous non-LTE abundance analysis of a sample of largely unevolved B stars which points to the existence of a population of intrinsically slowly-rotating, yet nitrogen-rich objects contrary to theoretical expectations. These observations are discussed in relation to the boron content and the (weak) magnetic field detected in some targets. [less ▲]

The QSO HE0450-2958 and the companion galaxy with which it is interacting, both ultra luminous in the infrared, have been the subject of much attention in recent years, as the quasar host galaxy remained undetected. This led to various interpretations on QSO and galaxy formation and co-evolution, such as black hole ejection, jet induced star formation, dust obscured galaxy, or normal host below the detection limit. We carried out deep observations in the near-IR in order to solve the puzzle concerning the existence of any host. The object was observed with the ESO VLT and HAWK-I in the near-IR J-band for 8 hours. The images have been processed with the MCS deconvolution method (Magain, Courbin & Sohy, 1998), permitting accurate subtraction of the QSO light from the observations. The compact emission region situated close to the QSO, called the blob, which previously showed only gas emission lines in the optical spectra, is now detected in our near-IR images. Its high brightness implies that stars likely contribute to the near-IR emission. The blob might thus be interpreted as an off-centre, bright and very compact host galaxy, involved in a violent collision with its companion. [less ▲]

Aims. We search for low-mass companions in the innermost region (<300 mas, i.e., 6 AU) of the β Pic planetary system. Methods. We obtained interferometric closure phase measurements in the K-band with the VLTI/AMBER instrument used in its medium spectral resolution mode. Fringe stabilization was provided by the FINITO fringe tracker. Results. In a search region of between 2 and 60 mas in radius, our observations exclude at 3σ significance the presence of companions with K-band contrasts greater than 5×10^-3 for 90% of the possible positions in the search zone (i.e., 90% completeness). The median 1σ error bar in the contrast of potential companions within our search region is 1.2×10^-3. The best fit to our data set using a binary model is found for a faint companion located at about 14.4 mas from β Pic, which has a contrast of 1.8×10^-3 ± 1.1×10^-3 (a result consistent with the absence of companions). For angular separations larger than 60 mas, both time smearing and field-of-view limitations reduce the sensitivity. Conclusions. We can exclude the presence of brown dwarfs with masses higher than 29 MJup (resp. 47 MJup) at a 50% (resp. 90%) completeness level within the first few AUs around β Pic. Interferometric closure phases offer a promising way to directly image low-mass companions in the close environment of nearby young stars. [less ▲]

This paper addresses the problem of efficiently operating the storage devices in an electricity microgrid featuring photovoltaic (PV) panels with both short- and long-term storage capacities. The problem of optimally activating the storage devices is formulated as a sequential decision making problem under uncertainty where, at every time-step, the uncertainty comes from the lack of knowledge about future electricity consumption and weather dependent PV production. This paper proposes to address this problem using deep reinforcement learning. To this purpose, a specific deep learning architecture has been designed in order to extract knowledge from past consumption and production time series as well as any available forecasts. The approach is empirically illustrated in the case of a residential customer located in Belgium. [less ▲]

More than 1,000 susceptibility loci have been identified through genome-wide association studies (GWAS) of common variants; however, the specific genes and full allelic spectrum of causal variants underlying these findings have not yet been defined. Here we used pooled next-generation sequencing to study 56 genes from regions associated with Crohn's disease in 350 cases and 350 controls. Through follow-up genotyping of 70 rare and low-frequency protein-altering variants in nine independent case-control series (16,054 Crohn's disease cases, 12,153 ulcerative colitis cases and 17,575 healthy controls), we identified four additional independent risk factors in NOD2, two additional protective variants in IL23R, a highly significant association with a protective splice variant in CARD9 (P < 1 x 10(-16), odds ratio approximately 0.29) and additional associations with coding variants in IL18RAP, CUL2, C1orf106, PTPN22 and MUC19. We extend the results of successful GWAS by identifying new, rare and probably functional variants that could aid functional experiments and predictive models. [less ▲]

Viral tumor models have significantly contributed to our understanding of oncogenic mechanisms. How transforming delta-retroviruses induce malignancy however remains poorly understood, especially as viral mRNA/protein are tightly silenced in tumors. Here, using deep sequencing of broad windows of small RNA sizes in the Bovine Leukemia Virus ovine model of leukemia/lymphoma, we provide in vivo evidence of the production of non-canonical Pol IIItranscribed viral microRNAs in leukemic B-cells in the complete absence of Pol II 5’ LTR-driven transcriptional activity. Processed from a cluster of five independent self-sufficient transcriptional units located in a proviral region dispensable for in vivo infectivity, BLV microRNAs represent ~ 40 % of all microRNAs in both experimental and natural malignancy. They are subject to strong purifying selection and associate with Argonautes, consistent with a critical function in silencing of important cellular and/or viral targets. BLV microRNAs are strongly expressed in preleukemic and malignant cells in which structural and regulatory gene expression is repressed, suggesting a key role in tumor onset and progression. Understanding how Pol III-dependent microRNAs subvert cellular and viral pathways will contribute in deciphering the intricate perturbations that underlie malignant transformation. [less ▲]
