We present a cooperative framework for content-based image retrieval for the realistic setting where images are distributed across multiple cooperating servers. The proposed method is in line with bag-of-features approaches but uses fully data-independent, randomized structures, shared by the cooperating servers, to map image features to common visual words. A coherent, global image similarity measure (which is a kernel) is computed in a distributed fashion over visual words, by only requiring a small amount of data transfers between nodes. Our experiments on various image types show that this framework is a very promising step towards large-scale, distributed content-based image retrieval. [less ▲]

In this paper, the incremental-secant mean-field homogenisation (MFH) scheme recently developed by the authors is extended to account for second statistical moments. The incremental-secant MFH method possesses several advantages compared to other MFH methods. Indeed the method can handle non-proportional and non-monotonic loadings, while the instantaneous stiffness operators used in the Eshelby tensor are naturally isotropic, avoiding the isotropisation approximation required by the affne and incremental-tangent methods. Moreover, the incremental-secant MFH formalism was shown to be able to account for material softening when extended to include a non-local damage model in the matrix phase, thus enabling an accurate simulation of the onset and evolution of damage across the scales. In this work, by accounting for a second statistical moment estimation of the current yield stress in the composite phases, the plastic flow computation allows capturing with a better accuracy the plastic yield in the composite material phases, which in turn improves the accuracy of the predictions, mainly in the case of short fibre composite materials. The incremental-secant mean-field-homogenisation (MFH) can thus be used to model a wide variety of composite material systems with a good accuracy. [less ▲]

This paper presents an incremental secant mean-field homogenization process for composite materials made of elasto–plastic constituents, which can exhibit damage. In this formulation, the residual stress and strain states reached in the phases upon a fictitious elastic unloading, are considered as starting point to apply the secant method. The mean stress fields in the phases are then computed using isotropic secant tensors, which are naturally used to define the Linear Comparison–Composite. The method, remains simple in its formulation, is applied on various problems involving elastic, elasto–plastic and perfectly–plastic phases, to demonstrate its accuracy compared to other existing MFH methods. The method is particularly attractive when the damaging process is accounted for in the matrix phase. Indeed, during the damaging process of one phase, the secant method can account for the resulting unloading of the other phase, ensuring an accurate prediction of the scheme, when compared to direct numerical simulations.

Glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) is a gut hormone secreted in response to a meal ingestion, which is rapidly degraded by a specific enzyme, dipeptidylpeptidase-4 (DPP-4). It enhances insulin secretion in a glucose-dependent manner, inhibits glucagon secretion, retards gastric emptying,... Two pharmacological approaches have been developed to increase the abnormally low GLP-1 levels in type 2 diabetic patients: either to subcutaneously inject an agent closed to GLP-1 (exenatide), which is partially resistant to the action of DPP-4, either to orally administer a selective DPP-4 inhibitor (sitagliptin,...). These new drugs offer improved blood glucose control of type 2 diabetic patients, without inducing hypoglycaemia and with favourable effects on body weight. [less ▲]

Le lapin européen est une espèce dont la prolificité légendaire pourrait suffire à expliquer la formidable expansion à travers le monde. Pourtant, on dit rarement qu’Oryctolagus cuniculus est également sédentaire au dernier degré. Si on peut, sans nul doute, en certains lieux, classer le lapin parmi les espèces envahissantes, cela n’est dû qu’à l’assistance obstinée des humains. Les tribulations du lapin sont marquées de « captures », « rencontres » et « bifurcations », une collection d’épisodes pris entre invention et violence destructrice, qu’une logique linéaire ne permet pas de décrire. Elles sont pour nous un exemple type de ces proliférations qui s’échappent des multiples noeuds de relations hommes - techniques – nature et qui expriment la pluralité des modes d’existence du vivant.

Chryseobacterium and other genera belonging to the family Flavobacteriaceae include organisms that can behave as human pathogens and are known to cause different kinds of infections. Several Flavobacteriaceae, including Chryseobacterium indologenes, are naturally resistant to beta-lactam antibiotics (including carbapenems), due to the production of a resident metallo-beta-lactamase. Although C. indologenes presently constitutes a limited clinical threat, the incidence of infections caused by this organism is increasing in some settings, where isolates that exhibit multidrug resistance phenotypes (that include aminoglycosides and quinolones) have been described. Here we report the identification and characterization of a new IND-type variant from a C. indologenes isolate from Burkina Faso resistant to beta-lactams and aminoglycosides. Its sequence identity with other IND-type metallo-beta-lactamases ranges from 72 to 90% (with IND-4 and IND-5, respectively). The purified enzyme exhibited N-terminal heterogeneity and a post-translational modification, consisting in the presence of a pyroglutamate residue at the N-terminus. IND-6 shows a broad substrate profile, with overall higher turnover rates than IND-5 and higher activities than IND-2 and IND-5 against ceftazidime and cefepime. [less ▲]

Indacaterol is a novel ultra long-acting beta 2-agonist (ultra-LABA), given once-daily, developed for the treatment of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). The clinical studies suggest that indacaterol produces a rapid (within 5 minutes) and sustained bronchodilation (at least 24 hours) in patients with COPD. It improves also several important parameters as lung function, the quality of life, symptoms, exercise capacity, resting and dynamic hyperinflation, and exacerbations, while being well tolerated. These outcomes justify its use in moderate to very severe COPD patients. This review will give a brief summary of recent clinical data on the indacaterol, its comparison with other pharmacological agents used in the treatment of COPD, and also some information about its use in routine.

In a manichean ideal, one expects unreservedly a clear-cut distinction between benign melanocytic neoplasms and the malignant ones. Such a distinction is commonly established by a clinico-pathologic confrontation for the majority of neoplasms. However, the boundaries may be blurred and uncertain for some lesions. We present an exploratory clinicopathologic algorithm of the border area between seemingly benign and seemingly malignant melanocytic neoplasms. The concept of a group of neoplasms called skin melanocytomas shed some light on such quandaries where the risk of misdiagnosis is quite high. [less ▲]
