In this paper we explore the geometry of the integer points in a cone rooted at a rational point. This basic geometric object allows us to establish some links between lattice point free bodies and the derivation of inequalities for mixed integer linear programs by considering two rows of a simplex tableau simultaneously.

The purpose of the present work was to measure the pulmonary inertance (IL) in ponies and to analyze its potential influence on the mechanics of breathing and on their aptitude to increase ventilation during exercise. Five healthy ponies 2.4-4 yr old [mean wt 255 +/- 15 (SE) kg] were used. On the one hand, inertance of the respiratory system (Irs) was computed from the value of the resonant frequency (fr) measured by the forced oscillation technique. On the other hand, respiratory airflow, tidal volume (VT), and transpulmonary pressure (PL) changes were recorded while the ponies were performing a light treadmill exercise, and IL was calculated as the ratio of the associated differences in inertial pressure (delta Pin) to volume acceleration (delta V). Respiratory airflow and VT were measured with a Fleisch pneumotachograph (no. 5) and PL with an intraesophageal balloon catheter. First, the protocol was carried out with the ponies breathing air and He-O2, second, while the ponies breathed through two additional tubes (100 cm long, 3 cm ID), then one, and finally none, fixed on the Fleisch pneumotachograph. Finally, the contribution of the extra- vs. the intrathoracic airways to IL was estimated by measuring the lateral midtracheal pressure recorded simultaneously with the aforementioned parameters. The values of Irs calculated with fr and of IL calculated on the basis of the delta Pin-delta V ratio were 29.8 +/- 0.4 and 19.8 +/- 1.0.10(-4) kPa.l-1.s-2, respectively. During He-O2 breathing IL decreased about three times; this result was similar to the predicted decrease based on gas density only.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS) [less ▲]

Although strict glucose control can prevent or delay the onset of complications in patients with diabetes, optimal control frequently is not achieved. A partial explanation for this phenomenon can be attributed to so-called clinical inertia of physicians, defined as "recognition of the problem but failure to act". Such therapeutic inertia may result from patient's reluctance, difficulties inherent to available treatments and physician's attitudes. Clinical inertia may be present at each successive step in the management of type 2 diabetes. This article describes some solutions to help physicians reducing therapeutic inertia and improving patient care. [less ▲]

Valvular heart diseases are of increasing importance among the general adult population. When compared with other heart diseases, there are few trials in the field of valvular heart disease and randomized clinical trials are particularly scarce. Two sets of guidelines exist: one in the USA and the other in Europe. However, they are not always consistent due to the lack of randomized data and it appears that, frequently, there is a gap between the existing guidelines and their effective application. [less ▲]

L'inertie thermique dans le bâtiment est l'une des composantes les plus étudiées en architecture bioclimatique. Le principal intérêt d'une grande capacité thermique est d'assurer le confort, surtout durant l'été, en déphasant les apports extérieurs et en atténuant les fluctuations de la température extérieure. L'inertie a beaucoup été étudiée dans des cellules-tests. La démarche décrite dans cet article se base sur une modélisation par le logiciel Suncode de différentes variantes d'une maison unifamiliale, représentative du parc de logement belge. Pour une maison purement passive, il s'avère que la consommation énergétique annuelle est beaucoup moins sensible à l'inertie qu'à l'isolation de la maison. Une saturation de consommation est même atteinte pour de grandes inerties. Pour assurer un déphasage supérieur à une journée, il conviendrait de favoriser un système actif de captation de l'énergie solaire qui serait directement injectée dans le milieu des parois épaisses de la maison.

Asthma is a chronic inflammatory disease which can be most often adequately controlled by current medications as demonstrated by multiple randomised clinical trials. Yet most of the recent surveys conducted in the real life setting point to an inadequate control in the majority of asthmatics. In addition to factors linked to the hygiene of life, clinician's inertia and patient's lack of adherence to the treatment certainly contribute to poor asthma control. [less ▲]

Therapeutic inertia is one of the components of clinical inertia. It mainly concerns the management of chronic diseases. It may be defined as the attitude of health care providers who do not initiate or intensify therapy appropriately despite recognition of the problem. Multiple causes may be identified, related to the physician but also to the patient and to the health care system. The consequences may be dramatic, both for the patient, in terms of quality of life and/or life expectancy, and for the society, because of the huge cost resulting from complications due to therapeutic inertia. Thus, various solutions should be proposed to help solving this important public health problem, focusing the actions on the physician, the patient and/or the health care system. [less ▲]

Therapeutic inertia, i.e. the absence of introduction of an antihypertensive treatment or on adjustment of its intensity by the medical doctor if the blood pressure is elevated or the goal not reached, is frequent and does play a role in the insufficient control of blood presure in the hypertensive population. The responsibility of the medical doctor is high in this respect. A strict medical approach is required, step by step, to correct this lack of reaction. [less ▲]

Infami senza lode narra le vicende di una parte dei migranti di origine italiana a Toronto e di quelli rimasti in una comunità dell'entroterra campano. Questo libro non è la solita etnografia di Little Italy, ma punta ad analizzare le biografie di uomini e donne in carne e ossa tra il partire e il restare. L'autore si spinge fin dentro le periferie degradate e povere della metropoli canadese e alcuni ambienti della manovalanza camorristica campana, riflettendo sui dispositivi di razzizzazione e criminalizzazione che investono sia i migranti di origine italiana non integrati a Toronto, sia i giovani "rimasti" in una comunità dell'Italia meridionale. In questo senso, si approda all'analisi dei meccanismi di assoggettamento, che seppur in contesti politici, sociali, economici e culturali diversi, riproducono incessantemente il dominio e la subordinazione, generando micro-resistenze fatte di devianza, dissolutezza, illegalismo, criminalità. Una comparazione che, nella quotidianità dell'esclusione e della differenza da un lato all'altro dell'Oceano, ha svelato molte contraddizioni sottese all'esperimento multiculturale in atto a Toronto e alle narrazioni culturaliste che investono sia la "comunità italiana" in Canada, sia la "comunità dei rimasti" in Italia.
