This paper describes the latest developments in a research program investigating the development of “adaptive internal structures” to enable adaptive aeroelastic control of aerospace structures. Through controlled changes of the second moment of area, orientation or position of the spars, it is possible to control the bending and torsional stiffness characteristics of aircraft wings or tail surfaces. The aeroelastic behaviour can then be controlled as desired. A number of different adaptive internal structure concepts (rotating, moving and split spars) are compared here using a simple rectangular wing structure in order to determine which are the most effective for achieving minimum drag at different points in a representative flight envelope. A genetic algorithm approach is employed to determine the optimal spar orientation for rotating spars concept. It is shown that it is feasible to adjust the structure and trim characteristics of such wing structures in order to achieve minimum drag at all conditions. [less ▲]

Among class B beta-lactamases, the subclass B2 CphA enzyme is characterized by a unique specificity profile. CphA efficiently hydrolyzes only carbapenems. In this work, we generated site-directed mutants that possess a strongly broadened activity spectrum when compared with the WT CphA. Strikingly, the N116H/N220G double mutant exhibits a substrate profile close to that observed for the broad spectrum subclass B1 enzymes. The double mutant is significantly activated by the binding of a second zinc ion under conditions where the WT enzyme is non-competitively inhibited by the same ion. [less ▲]

Severe congestive heart failure developed in an acromegalic patient, and was successfully treated with octreotide followed by trans-sphenoidal surgery. Clinical, hormonal echocardiographic and haemodynamic findings as well as histological heart examination before and after treatment revealed that over-production of growth hormone may induce the myocardial cell degeneration responsible for mechanical heart dysfunction. In addition, this unique example demonstrates the reversibility of myocardial damage following octreotide and trans-sphenoidal surgery, leading to significant improvement in cardiac function with minimal diastolic dysfunction and moderate interstitial fibrosis.

BACKGROUND Osteoporosis affects millions of elderly patients. Bisphosphonates represent first-line therapy. Osteonecrosis of the jaws in patients treated with bisphosphonates is mostly associated with intravenous bisphosphonates while the incidence associated with oral bisphosphonates is not significant. AIM This report documents a case of bisphosphonate-related osteonecrosis of the jaw (BRONJ) after dental implant removal in an osteoporotic patient treated with alendronate and risedronate for 15 years. MATERIAL AND METHODS An 83-years-old patient with no significant systemic disease underwent implant removal in the first molar left hemimandible position in 2010 due to a peri-implantitis. The surgical procedure was uneventful thought preventive measures were no taken. In June 2011, the patient was referred to our department with a wide bone sequestration of the left mandibular body. A panoramic radiograph showed an increased bone marrow density with bone sequestration. Since then, the patient underwent several courses of antibiotics and conservative therapy, without relief of symptoms. RESULTS Since 2011, the patient has lost 13 teeth in the mandible and the osteonecrosis has disseminated to the entire jaw and the left mandible condyle. The patient has even lost the left hearing. Resective surgery under general anesthesia is not indicated due to the risk because of the age of the patient. CONCLUSION AND CLINICAL IMPLICATIONS Despite the low risk of BRONJ occurrence after implant surgery in oral N-BP users, the fate of dental implants in these patients remains uncertain. Therefore patients at risk must be given a full explanation of the potential risks of implant failure and BRONJ development. Osteonecrosis of the jaws in association with bisphosphonate therapy is a very serious condition with which all dentists should be familiar. Since the treatment of BRONJ is difficult, prevention is the main goal. When the osteonecrosis begins, it can be very painful to the patient, difficult to treat, and can lead to very deleterious sequelae. [less ▲]

Osteoporosis affects millions of elderly patients, and anti-resorptive drugs (ARD) such as bisphosphonates (BP) represent the first-line therapy. Despite the benefits related to the use of these medications, osteonecrosis of the jaw is a significant complication in a subset of patients receiving these drugs. CASE PRESENTATION: This report documents a case of dramatic bisphosphonate-related osteonecrosis associated with periodontitis and dental implant removal in an osteoporotic patient treated with per os bisphosphonates for an uninterrupted period of 15 years. CONCLUSION: The aim of this report was to discuss the administration period of BP in the treatment of osteoporosis, the decision-making and clinical management of severe MRONJ and the indications for dental implant placement in these specific patients.

On analyse ici les manifestations discursives de la contradiction que constitue en soi, pour le discours médiatique, un événement, et ce en faisant porter l'interrogation sur le récepteur. Il s'agit de se demander comment le média relaie le choc que constitue l'événement en nouant ensemble deux affirmations : l'événement fait quelque chose au discours médiatique et celui-ci fait quelque chose au lecteur. Cette dimension performative du discours est soutenue par la déconstruction derridienne du signe linguistique et par la notion de "partage du sensible" de Jacques Rancière. [less ▲]

No other guidelines were given, so total freedom was left to the students. In addition to this request, the young citizens were asked to fill in a 19-question questionnaire about their federal perceptions and preferences as well as some political and socio-demographic indicators.

This contribution investigates the syntactic conceptions of, and the diagramming system introduced by, the American grammarian Stephen Watkins Clark (1847), who introduced the first comprehensive syntactic diagramming system. The structure of the English sentence is illustrated by agglutinated “bubbles” expressing the relations between words by the means of their relative position. The sentence consists of two or three horizontally aligned bubbles containing words that are called principal elements. These principal elements can be complemented with adjunct elements, that appear in bubbles attached below them. For grammatical words the conventions differ depending on whether the grammatical word is a preposition or a conjunction. Coordination is never named as such, but there is an orthogonal abstract relation that connects elements performing the same role in a “compound” construction. The system allows recursiveness in two different ways: by wrapping bubbles into other bubbles, thus following a mereological logic (part- whole relations) close to IC analysis or by hierarchically aggregating bubbles that resemble dependency trees. Clark's conceptions thus prefigure modern graphical formalizations. [less ▲]
