This paper deals with adnominal possession in Ancient Egyptian, focusing on constructions involving a pronominal possessor. In early Egyptian, a single construction is attested: substantive (possessee) + bound person marker (possessor). From the 6th Dynasty onwards, a new construction, which is built from a demonstrative determiner, appears: pAy + bound person marker (possessor) + substantive (possessee). In order to describe the gradual encroachment of the innovative possessive determiner pAy-f on the older construction with the possessive bound person marker, this study proposes a discourse-oriented analysis, using the notion of ‘subjective deixis.’ [less ▲]

The ZNF91 gene family, a subset of the Kruppel-associated box (KRAB)-containing group of zinc finger genes, comprises more than 40 loci; most reside on human chromosome 19p12-p13.1. We have examined the emergence and evolutionary conservation of the ZNF91 family. ZNF91 family members were detected in all species of great apes, gibbons, Old World monkeys, and New World monkeys examined but were not found in prosimians or rodents. In each species containing the ZNF91 family, the genes were clustered at one major site, on the chromosome(s) syntenic to human chromosome 19. To identify a putative "founder" gene, > 20 murine KRAB-containing zinc finger protein (ZFP) cDNAs were randomly cloned, but none showed sequence similarity to the ZNF91 genes. These observations suggest that the ZNF91 gene cluster is a derived character specific to Anthropoidea, resulting from a duplication and amplification event some 55 million years ago in the common ancestor of simians. Although the ZNF91 gene cluster is present in all simian species, the sequences of the human ZNF91 gene that confer DNA-binding specificity were conserved only in great apes, suggesting that there is not a high selective pressure to maintain the DNA targets of these proteins during evolution.

An approach inspired of Model Predictive Control is proposed to determine a sequence of control actions aimed at alleviating thermal overloads in emergency conditions. The algorithm brings the line currents below their limits in the time interval left by protections, while accounting for constraints on control changes at each step. Its closed-loop nature allows to compensate for measurement noise and model uncertainties. [less ▲]

In case of failed angioplasty, coronary stenting has gradually emerged as a non-surgical method to restore vessel patency and optimize coronary blood flow. There is still little clinical and angiographic information on the use of radiopaque single loose interdigitating wire stents in angioplasty complicated by threatened or acute closure. Seventy-one patients received Wiktor stents after threatened vessel closure in 53 cases and acute closure in 18 cases. Stent delivery was successful in 98%. In-hospital death occurred in 1 case (1.4%). Stents occlusion were faced in 10 cases (14%), of which 6 presented early and 4 late after the procedure. Urgent bypass surgery was needed in 9 cases (12%) and 7 patients (10%) developed acute myocardial infarction. Serious bleeding complications occurred in 7 cases (10%) and vascular repair was performed in 4 patients (5%). During a follow-up of 20 +/- 10 months, 2 patients died, no myocardial infarction was observed and recurrence of angina was noted in 17 patients (24%). Angiographic analysis showed an acute gain in minimal lumen diameter of 1.71 +/- 0.22 mm and a late loss of 0.63 +/- 0.17 mm. Angiographic restenosis (diameter stenosis > 50%) presented in 20% of patients. Therefore, Wiktor stenting yields similar results than currently used stents in acute closure and strictly defined threatened vessel closure following angioplasty. [less ▲]

Introduction Improving patient flow from emergency department (ED) to in-hospital bed admission has become an everyday challenge. Implementation of an ED bed manager (BM) who monitors hospital beds availability daily has been advocated to reduce boarding time for admitted patient. However, little is known on the actual burden and pitfalls of ED bed coordination. Indeed, overcrowded hospitals often lead to inappropriate transfer from ED to less adapted hospital unit or unit with lower level of care. We design the present study to evaluate the occurrence of such step-down units transfer. Methods This prospective study was conducted in a tertiary care academic hospital accounting for 622 licensed beds and an ED census of 45000/year. In 2014, a BM was implemented as a result of a quality improvement program. Focus was made solely on facilitating and improving patient movements form ED to the hospital wards. The investigators extracted data from a 20-days random observation period in February and March 2015, or a total of 231 patients administered by the BM. Results During this period, mean ED census was 131 (±12) patients /day, of which mean hospital admission rate was 20,6 %. BM administered 12 (±3) of these patients daily. Most of these patients were transferred to an appropriate unit (47.6 %) or a short stay unit (32.1%), while 17.7 % were referred to under adapted units and 2.6 % to step down units. Patients’ average length of stay (LOS) was 32 hours. LOS for patients immediately admitted in the ED short stay unit (n=74) was 26.5 (±22) hours, while it took 35.8 (±26) hours to reach an appropriate unit (n=110) and 35.6 (±27.4) to reach a less-appropriate unit (n=41). Interestingly, patients transferred to a non-appropriate unit (n=6) stayed 29.5 (±15.7) hours in the ED. Communications means used by the BM was face-to-face talk almost half of the cases (n=93) and phone calls for the other half (n=115). Discussion and conclusion These results emphasize the complexity of ED flow coordination. Whether or not such coordination is effective on ED overcrowding or patients’ LOS, this preliminary study identifies the frequent use of short stay and under-adapted units instead of optimal bed location. Besides, further research should clarify the impact of these hospitalisations’ pathways on the quality of care. Finally, these observations indicate the urgent need for early determination of patients who could actually be safely transferred to such units. [less ▲]

After reviewing the basic voltage instability mechanisms, this chapter de-scribes emergency measures that can be used in order to contain voltage insta-bility and prevent a voltage collapse leading to a blackout. A real case of such a voltage collapse in the Hellenic system is presented and analyzed. Emer-gency measures presented include existing or projected controls acting on bulk power delivery transformer load tap changers, as well as direct load shedding. An actual design and application of a load shedding controller in the Hydro-Québec system is presented. [less ▲]

In health care organizations, the need for 24-hour care increases the number of patient’s transfer. Handover and shift changes are now recognized as particularly critical moments for the reliability of care. However, few studies focused specifically on how physicians share relevant information during these moments. Moreover, emergency departments are known to be extremely vulnerable to error, because of high time pressure, frequent interruptions, high variability and number of patients, etc. Our study aimed to estimate how emergency physicians share information about a patient during handover, and to evaluate the impact of a procedure of medical handover standardization. To do this, we conducted a pre-post test on completeness of transmissions. We first performed observations of 50 physicians’ shift changes in an emergency department. All of these were video-recorded and then analyzed. We classified communications into seven categories (identifying information, current pathology, patient’s current status, significant patient’s tests results, priority medical interventions, diagnose and recommendations, and dispositions). After these observations, we elaborated and implemented a standardization procedure, according to literature, analyses of our observations and physicians’ recommendations. We finally assessed this procedure by observing and analyzing 40 handovers, using the same method as previously described. We also evaluated the physician’s opinion about the quality of the transmission with a 7-point Likert scale. Our results showed three significant differences before and after the standardization of communications. Physicians share more information about patient’s tests results, priority interventions and dispositions. Moreover, we found a significant difference of the perceived quality of the standardized handover. [less ▲]

How are identities of alternative forms of organization constructed and how does this process differ relative to normative forms socially expected? In this research we consider identity formation in co-operatives, a population of organizations allied globally through values and practices such as democratic participation, voluntary and open membership, and limited return to capital investment. As an extension of current thinking on identity formation in entrepreneurship and organizational theory, we use co-operatives to explore social expectations and institutional arrangements around form at the societal, population, and organizational levels using a population ecology framework. We develop a research agenda based on propositions that address specific features of identity formation in less typical forms of organization, including tensions with normative business expectations, engagement with identity audiences, embeddedness in networks and alliances, structural factors influencing identity, and identity ambiguity.

Introduction: Allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allo-HSCT) is the treatment of choice for many patients suffering from hematological malignancies, severe hemoglobinopathies, bone marrow failures or severe primary immunodeficiencies. Graft rejection/failure (GF) is a life-threatening complication following allo-HSCT that is most commonly caused by the reactivity of recipient T cells, natural killer (NK) cells or antibodies against donor grafted hematopoietic cells. The increasing use of allo-HSCT following reduced-intensity conditioning (RIC) and the increasing use of alternative donors (unrelated cord blood and human leukocyte antigen (HLA)-mismatched donor) have resulted in higher frequency of GF. Areas covered: This review describes the pathogenesis and current prevention and treatment of GF as well as agents in development for GF prevention or treatment. Expert opinion: The risk of GF may be reduced in the future by optimizing the conditioning regimens and post-grafting immunosuppression, increasing the number of hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) and/or immune cells transplanted, optimizing HSC homing and better detecting patients at high risk of GF by searching for pre-transplant donor-specific anti-HLA antibodies in patients given grafts from HLA-mismatched donors, or by closely monitoring donor T- and/or NK-cell chimerism after allo-HSCT following RIC.
