This article aims to highlight the position occupied by compromise in the field of ethics. The argument is set out in two stages. First, the author attempts to clarify the contours of compromise by treating it as both a procedure or process of conflict resolution and a goal or ‘‘solution’’ to be achieved. In the second stage, he examines the distinction that could be made between ‘‘morality in compromise’’ and ‘‘morality of compromise’’, so as to measure its import and show how compromise not only contains elements specific to morality as a system but can also be a form of morality in itself.

Sixteen common seals (Phoca vitulina) were stranded on the Belgian and northern French coasts during the summer of 1998. Eleven (10 pups and one adult) were sampled for histopathological, immunohistochemical, serological. bacteriological, parasitological and virological investigations. The main gross findings were severe emaciation, acute haemorrhagic enteritis, acute pneumonia, interstitial pulmonary emphysema and oedema, and chronic ulcerative stomatitis. Microscopical lung findings were acute to subacute pneumonia with interstitial oedema and emphysema. Severe lymphocytic depletion was observed in lymph nodes. Severe acute to subacute meningoencephalitis was observed in one animal. Specific staining with two monoclonal antibodies directed against canine distemper virus (CDV) and phocine distemper virus was observed in a few lymphocytes in the spleen and lymph nodes of three seals. Anti-CDV neutralising antibodies were detected in sera from six animals. Seven of the seals were positive by reverse transcriptase-PCR for the morbillivirus phosphoprotein gene. The lesions observed were consistent with those in animals infected by a morbillivirus, and demonstrated that distemper has recently recurred in North Sea seals. [less ▲]

We give some generalizations of $k$-automatic sequences replacing the $k$-ary system by an abstract numeration system on a regular language. We study some of the closure properties of these sequences and the possible extension to the multidimensional case or to infinite alphabets. The equivalence of these sequences and morphic predicates is given and the relationship to recognizability is also investigated. [less ▲]

Different equivalent widths and line displacements of Hbeta and Fe II are observed in spectra of two condensations located within the reflection nebula surrounding HD 87643: they indicate important relative motions (Deltav â ¡ 150 km s[SUP]-1[/SUP]) between various parts of the nebulosity and demonstrate that the stellar atmosphere in which the lines are formed is not isotropic and/or not homogeneous. The spectrum of another reflection nebula situated in the vicinity of HD 87643 is also briefly described. [less ▲]

BACKGROUND: Organ procurement and transplant activity from controlled donation after circulatory death (DCD) was evaluated over an 11-year period to determine whether this program influenced the transplant and donation after brain death (DBD) activities. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Deceased donor (DD) procurement and transplant data were prospectively collected in a local database for retrospective review. RESULTS: There was an increasing trend in the potential and actual DCD numbers over time. DCD accounted for 21.9% of the DD pool over 11 years, representing 23.7% and 24.2% of the DD kidney and liver pool, respectively. The DBD retrieval and transplant activity increased during the same time period. Mean conversion rate turning potential into effective DCD donors was 47.3%. Mean DCD donor age was 54.6 years (range, 3-83). Donors >/=60 years old made up 44.1% of the DCD pool. Among referred donors, reasons for nondonation were medical contraindications (33.7%) and family refusals (19%). Mean organ yield per DCD donor was 2.3 organs. Mean total procurement warm ischemia time was 19.5 minutes (range, 6-39). In 2012, 17 DCD and 37 DBD procurements were performed in the Liege region, which has slightly >1 million inhabitants. CONCLUSIONS: This DCD program implementation enlarged the DD pool and did not compromise the development of DBD programs. The potential DCD pool might be underused and seems to be a valuable organ donor source. [less ▲]

This paper performs a census of the 107 performance measures for portfolios that have been proposed so far in the scientific literature. We discuss their main strengths and weaknesses and provide a classification based on their objectives, properties and degree of generalization. The measures are categorized based on the general way they are computed: asset selection vs. market timing, standardized vs. individualized, absolute vs. relative and excess return vs. gain measure. We show that several categories have been exhausted while some others feature very heterogeneous ways to assess performance within the same sets of objectives. The census is divided in two parts. The current article (Part 1) introduces the general taxonomy and presents the 75 standardized risk-adjusted measures. [less ▲]

Although water rockets are widely used to illustrate first year physics principles, accurate measurements show that they outperform the usual textbook analysis at the beginning of the thrust phase. This paper gives a more thorough analysis of this problem. It is shown that the air expansion in the rocket is accompanied by water vapor condensation, which provides an extra thrust; the downward acceleration of water within the rocket also contributes to the thrust, an effect that is negligible in other types of rockets; the apparent gravity resulting from the acceleration of the rocket contributes as much to water ejection as does the pressure difference between the inside and outside of the rocket; and the water flow is transient, which precludes the use of Bernoulli’s equation. Although none of these effects is negligible, they mostly cancel each other, and the overall accuracy of the analysis is only marginally improved. There remains a difference between theory and experiment with water rockets. [less ▲]
