Power line galloping is a large vibration (up to the sag) at very low frequency (fraction of Hz) occuring on power line spans under heavy wind and cold temperature, with ice/snow deposit. Galloping is due to aerodynamic or aeroelastic instability. It may cause dramatic damages on conductor, hardware and towers. [less ▲]

The wildlife populations of northern Central African Republic (CAR) have long suffered intense uncontrolled hunting. Socio-political turmoil in northern CAR that started in 2002 resulted in a rebellion in 2006. An aerial sample count was carried out in northern CAR after the cease-fire to assess the impact of this troubled period on wildlife. The survey was flown at the end of the dry season in February-March 2010. It covered a landscape complex of 95 000 km² comprising national parks, hunting reserves and community hunting areas. Comparison with earlier surveys reveal a dramatic decline of wildlife: the numbers of large mammals fell by 94% in 30 years, probably due to poaching, loss of habitat and diseases brought by illegal movements of cattle. Elephant (Loxodonta africana), reduncini and topi (Damaliscus lunatus) populations showed the greatest decline (each over 90%). Other species declined by 70 to 80% during the same period. The future of the rest of the wildlife in this area is dark without a strong commitment to provide adequate funding and quickly implement determined field management. Reinforced cooperation with neighbouring Chad and Sudan is required since they are facing similar problems. [less ▲]

Monitoring of game species populations is necessary to adequately assess culling by hunters in areas where natural large predators are absent. However, game managers have to control several species and they often lack of an efficient and convenient survey design method. Monitoring several species at that same time over large areas could thus be cost– and time–effective. We tested the influence of several factors during monitoring of three common game species, (wild boar, roe deer and red fox, using road–based distance sampling in association with thermal imagers. This pilot survey based on 20 night counts in five contrasting sites studied the effect of several covariates (species, thermal imaging, observer, group size, and habitat type) on the detection probabilities. No differences were observed between thermal imagers and group sizes , but we found differences between observers . Expected differences were also observed between species and between habitat type. Our results show that the detectability of low cost thermal imaging equipment is similar to that of more expensive methods, highlighting new possibilities for the use of thermal imagery by game managers. Although adjustments should be made to the study design our findings suggest that large–scale multi–species monitoring could be an efficient method for common game species. [less ▲]

A systematic search for gamma Dor and gamma Dor - delta Scuti hybrid pulsators was conducted on the CoRoT LRa01 Exo-archive yielding a total of 418 gamma Dor and 274 hybrid candidates. After an automatic jump correction 194 and 167 respectively, show no more obvious jumps and were investigated in more detail. For about 25\% of these candidates classification spectra from the Anglo-Australian Observatory (AAO) are available. The detailed frequency analysis and a check for combination frequencies together with spectroscopic information allowed us to identify I) 34 gamma Dor stars which show very different pulsation spectra where mostly two modes dominate. Furthermore, a search for regularities in their oscillation spectra allowed to derive recurrent period spacings for 5 of these gamma Dor stars. II) 25 clear hybrid pulsators showing frequencies in the gamma Dor and delta Sct domain and are of A-F spectral type. [less ▲]

Gamma interferon (IFN-γ) production has been ascribed a role in protecting cows infected with Neospora caninum against abortion. The present study analyzes the interaction between IFN-γ production and levels of plasma pregnancy-associated glycoprotein-1 (PAG-1), as a marker of placental/fetal well-being, throughout gestation in naturally Neospora-infected dairy cows. Data were obtained from 88 pregnant cows from two herds: 62 seropositive and 26 seronegative for the parasite. Blood sample collection was performed on days 40, 90, 120, 150, 180 and 210 of gestation. Plasma was tested for antibodies against N. caninum, PAG-1 and IFN-γ. Twenty five (28.4%) pregnancies were recorded after AI using Holstein-Friesian semen (19 in seronegative and 6 in seropositive animals), and 63 (71.6%) after AI using Limousin semen (7 in seronegative and 56 in seropositive animals). Gamma interferon was detected in the plasma of 14 (22.6%) of the 62 Neospora-seropositive cows and could not be detected in any of the 26 seronegative animals. All 14 cows producing IFN-γ became pregnant by using Limousin semen. Our GLM repeated measures showed no effect of herd, lactation number, milk production at the time of pregnancy diagnosis and Neospora-seropositivity on plasma PAG-1 concentrations. Significant positive effects of both the day of gestation (P<0.0001) and interaction between day of gestation and breed of sire (P = 0.001) on PAG-1 values were registered. Cows carrying twins had higher (P = 0.002) PAG-1 concentrations throughout gestation than cows carrying singletons. Interactions between breed of sire and Neospora-seropositivity (P<0.0001), and between IFN-γ production and Neospora-seropositivity (P = 0.04) were also detected. Thus, Neospora-seronegative cows inseminated with Limousin and Neospora-seropositive cows with no IFN-γ production, exhibited higher PAG-1 concentrations throughout gestation than seropositive cows inseminated with Limousin semen and producing IFN-γ, respectively. Our data indicate that production of IFN-γ correlates negatively and, the production of antibodies against N. caninum is uncorrelated with plasma PAG-1 concentrations during gestation in Neospora-infected dairy cows. Our results also suggest that augmented Th1 cell-mediated immunity is related to a lower risk of abortion and therefore higher resistance to the parasite in cows inseminated with Limousin versus Holstein-Friesian semen.

Radical resection of facial nerve schwannomas classically implies a high risk of severe facial palsy. Owing to the rarity of facial palsy after gamma knife surgery (GKS) of vestibular schwannomas, functional evaluation after GKS seems rational in this specific group of patients.

We discuss recent specific heat data in high magnetic fields on URu2Si2 and 4% Rh-doped URu2Si2 as well as previously published de Haas-van Alphen data at lower magnetic fields in pure URu2Si2: both of which are consistent with quasiparticle bands formed from a hybridization between 5f-electron Gamma(5) doublets and regular conduction electrons. The system exhibits itinerant electron metamagnetism that gives rise to a putative quantum critical point at similar to 34-37T (depending on the % of Rh) that is subsequently unstable to field-induced phases.

Gnawing on corrugated packing paper was measured. Results showed that: (1) indirect- but not direct-acting DAGs induced gnawing, (2) gnawing induced by indirect-acting DAGs GBR 12935, nomifensine and mazindol was potentiated in mice in which GABA type A receptors were stimulated either by THIP or muscimol, and (3) indirect DAGs had a differential sensitivity to the effects of THIP and muscimol.
