The size of dairy cow herds in Europe is increasing. Farmers have to manage larger herds but want, at the same time, benefit from a normal social life. So, the milking robot can bring solutions. Its use can reduce physical labour and allow flexibility. During the past 10 years, the number of milking robots has been increased in Europe. In farm practice, this technology has resulted in a reduction in the amount of grazing even though grazing appears as a natural practice which is appreciated by the consumers. At the experimental farm of the University of Liège, we are developing the concept of a mobile milking robot in collaboration with a private company. This prototype will allow cows to graze and could be moved to different locations on pastures during the grazing season. The prototype will be used indoors during the end of the winter season and will be moved outdoor during the 2010 grazing season. The feasibility of this prototype has to be tested in the field. Milk production and quality, the number of visits and the grazing parameters will be recorded. Different equipments in view to attract the cows to the robot as the presence of a cow brush, the location of the drinking point, will be compared. The behaviour of animals will be also assessed.

We report on the detection by Swift of GRB 080913, and subsequent optical/near-infrared follow-up observations by GROND, which led to the discovery of its optical/NIR afterglow and the recognition of its high-z nature via the detection of a spectral break between the i' and z' bands. Spectroscopy obtained at the ESO-VLT revealed a continuum extending down to λ = 9400 Å, and zero flux for 7500 Å<λ < 9400 Å, which we interpret as the onset of a Gunn-Peterson trough at z = 6.695± 0.025 (95.5% confidence level), making GRB 080913 the highest-redshift gamma-ray burst (GRB) to date, and more distant than the highest-redshift QSO. We note that many redshift indicators that are based on promptly available burst or afterglow properties have failed for GRB 080913. We report on our follow-up campaign and compare the properties of GRB 080913 with bursts at lower redshift. In particular, since the afterglow of this burst is fainter than typical for GRBs, we show that 2 m class telescopes can identify most high-redshift GRBs. [less ▲]

This paper suggest to come back on an aspect of the history of the tradition of the De fide with a reflection on the reception and usage of this Liber manualis by both the lay and ecclesiastical elite of the 9th and 10th century. It will mention successively some evidence of the influence of this treatise into the imperial politics, the preachers’ activities, the lay moral as well as into the diplomatic practices. Rather than a sound demonstration, it will present a collection of scattered notes. [less ▲]

The aim of this study was to investigate the role of plasma glucagon levels on the blood glucose response to intravenous insulin administered continuously or in a pulsatile manner. Six type I diabetic patients proven to have no residual insulin secretion were investigated. Endogenous glucagon secretion was inhibited by a continuous intravenous infusion of somatostatin (100 micrograms/h) and replaced by exogenous infusions of the hormone at three different rates (7.5, 4.5, and 2.5 micrograms/h), resulting in three different plasma glucagon steady-state levels (i.e., approximately equal to 200, approximately equal to 130, and approximately equal to 75 pg/ml, respectively). Each subject, in random order and on different days, was infused intravenously with regular human insulin either continuously (0.17 mU X kg-1 X min-1) or with the same amount of insulin infused in a pulsatile manner (0.85 mU X kg-1 X min-1 during 2 min followed by 8 min during which no insulin was infused). At plasma glucagon levels approximately equal to 200 pg/ml, blood glucose rose from approximately 10 to approximately 13 mM without any difference between the two modalities of insulin infusion. For plasma glucagon levels approximately equal to 130 pg/ml, plasma glucose remained steady throughout the experiments, but during the last 40 min, plasma glucose levels were significantly lower when insulin was administered intermittently. This greater blood glucose-lowering effect of pulsatile insulin occurred earlier and was more pronounced for plasma glucagon levels averaging 75 pg/ml. We conclude that the greater hypoglycemic effect of insulin administered intravenously in a pulsatile manner in type I diabetics critically depends on plasma glucagon circulating levels. [less ▲]

This paper proposes a generalization of the merit rating system described in Dionne & Vanasse (1989,1992). The model takes into account explanatory variables as well as possible modifications in the policyholders unobservable risk characteristics. It is based on the analysis of time series for count observations proposed by Harvey & Fernandes (1989). Numerical results obtained with a Spanish panel databasis for motor insurance illustrate the approach described in this paper. [less ▲]
