[1] Infrared solar spectra recorded between July 1991 to March 1992 and November 2002 with the Fourier transform spectrometer on Kitt Peak (31.9 degrees N latitude, 111.6 degrees W longitude, 2.09 km altitude) have been analyzed to retrieve stratospheric columns of HNO3, NO, and NO2. The measurements cover a decade time span following the June 1991 Mount Pinatubo volcanic eruption and were recorded typically at 0.01 cm(-1) spectral resolution. The measured HNO3 stratospheric column shows a 20% decline from 9.16 x 10(15) molecules cm(-2) from the first observation in March 1992 to 7.40 x 10(15) molecules cm(-2) at the start of 1996 reaching a broad minimum of 6.95 x 10(15) molecules cm(-2) thereafter. Normalized daytime NO and NO2 stratospheric column trends for the full post-Pinatubo eruption time period equal (+ 1.56 +/- 0.45)% yr(-1), 1 sigma, and (+ 0.52 +/- 0.32)% yr(-1), 1 sigma, respectively. The long-term trends are superimposed on seasonal cycles with ~10% relative amplitudes with respect to mean values, winter maxima for HNO3 and summer maxima for NO and NO2. The measurements have been compared with two-dimensional model calculations utilizing version 6.1 Stratospheric Aerosol and Gas Experiment ( SAGE) II sulfate aerosol surface area density measurements through 1999 and extended to the end of the time series by repeating the 1999 values. The model-calculated HNO3, NO, and NO2 stratospheric column time series agree with the measurements to within ~8% after taking into account the vertical sensitivity of the ground-based measurements. The consistency between the measured and model-calculated stratospheric time series confirms the decreased impact on stratospheric reactive nitrogen chemistry of the key heterogeneous reaction that converts reactive nitrogen to its less active reservoir form as the lower-stratospheric aerosol surface area density declined by a factor of ~20 after the eruption maximum.

The decrease in haemoglobin concentration commonly observed after major surgery is usually corrected by red cell transfusions or oral iron medication. The increased awareness of blood-transmissible diseases has led to the restrictive use of homologous blood and to interest in alternatives for correcting anaemia. We investigated the pathophysiology of postoperative anaemia by studying variables of erythropoiesis, iron metabolism, and inflammation in 48 consecutive patients who underwent total hip replacement. Haemoglobin concentration remained low during 14 days after surgery with only a mild increase in erythropoietin concentration and reticulocyte count. No increase in serum transferrin receptor concentration was observed during the first 2 weeks after surgery. Postoperative serum ferritin increased, whereas serum iron, transferrin and transferrin saturation decreased significantly. There was a marked increase in interleukin-6 and C-reactive protein with maximal values on the 1st and 4th post-operative day, respectively. At 6 weeks after surgery, haemoglobin concentration and variables of iron metabolism were almost at the preoperative level and serum transferrin receptor concentration was significantly increased, indicating increased erythropoietic activity. These changes were preceded by the normalization of interleukin-6 and C-reactive protein levels. Haemoglobin, iron, transferrin, and ferritin concentrations were not influenced by iron therapy during the postoperative period and no differences of erythropoietic and iron variables were observed between transfused and non-transfused patients. In conclusion, post-operative erythropoiesis is associated with an inflammatory effect of surgery on iron metabolism, which can explain, despite a slightly increased production of erythropoietin, the persistence of anaemia and the lack of effect of iron supplementation after surgery.

The post-perihelion coma activity of Comet C/1995 O1 Hale-Bopp is monitored at ESO telescopes in La Silla and Paranal since Sept. 1997. Imaging through broadband filters in the visible and near-IR wavelength ranges allows to investigate the evolution of the dust coma, namely the appearance of jets, fans, shells and clouds. Long-term evolution: the comet had a porcupine-like embedded fan coma in autumn 1997 that evolved into a northern fan plus shell pattern in 1998 and remains like this since. Thus, the evolution of the coma structure post-perihelion was similar to that pre-perihelion at about the same heliocentric distances, but is occurred in reversed order. This long-term evolution can be characterized by quasi-continuous dust emission from a few (minimum 4) active regions (producing the fan structures) on the nucleus that is modulated by occasional, repetitive and short-term activity increases (generating shell features in the coma). Outbursts: a number of outbursts and unusual activity patterns occurred in the coma of the comet post-perihelion that are documented through the appearance of complex "palm-tree-like" structures of temporary nature in association with outbursts in the visual lightcurve of the comet and a series of 3 dust clouds resembling "mini-comets" and passing through the northern coma at projected velocities of 30-50m/s. The similarity of coma patterns and cometary viewing geometry from Earth before and after perihelion suggests that some nuclear regions had enhanced long-term activity, possibly driven by super-volatile ices at larger (>10AU) heliocentric distances and that the orientation of the rotation axis of the nucleus did not change much over the past 7 years.

The study tested the possibility of a positive relationship between the dose of cocaine and the size of the placebo effect generated after contextual sensitisation to the behavioural effects of cocaine. Male C57BL/6J mice were first injected (subcutaneous, s.c.) over seven successive daily sessions with saline or one of three doses of cocaine (2.5, 5 or 7.5 mg/kg), either in the test room or in the colony room (before being placed in a novel cage tub). On the test day, 24 h after chronic pre-treatment, mice from the four conditions were challenged under saline in the test room. Mice were video-recorded and their behaviours were scored using a time-sampling technique. A dose-dependent development of sensitisation was first generated. On the saline challenge test day, significant levels of placebo hyperlocomotion were obtained for mice previously given 5 and 7.5 mg/kg, but not 2.5 mg/kg cocaine, the effect being significantly greater in the mice pretreated with the highest dose than in those receiving the intermediate one, which exhibited a placebo effect that was greater than that of the mice pretreated with 2.5 mg/kg cocaine. Therefore, the magnitude of the placebo effect was a function of the intensity of the unconditioned stimulus (the dose used to generate sensitisation). Such results directly support the Pavlovian conditioning account of post-sensitisation placebo effects. [less ▲]

Access to finance has become a major policy issue under the term Financial Inclusion. In this paper, we focus on the role of postal operators in financial inclusion policies. In developing countries, postal firms typically manage a dense network of counters with a unique coverage of rural areas where the banking sector is totally absent. We use a formal location model for postal counters and bank agencies to show that in rural areas a post-bank partnership can be a vector of financial inclusion and that this can be done profitably.

This joint contribution interrogates the postcolonial relations that are at play in the Congolese political sphere in Belgium, the former colonial metropolis. Two lines of argument are developed. First, the politicisation of the postcolonial relations, which pre-dates the Congolese immigration to Belgium, is viewed from a historical perspective. Second, the highly competitive political plu- ralism, as observed since the early 2000s, is examined. After having restored historically the con- stitution and the reconstruction of this political sphere, wherein new technologies deepen the transnational movements, the authors will examine the tensions that arise from the unifying dynamics of the politically engaged Diaspora, on the one hand, and its intrinsic logics of division and fragmentation, on the other. The postcolonial issues that are at stake are to be seen on differ- ent levels: transnational, local, within the Diaspora, and between the Congolese minority and the Belgian majority. Their interconnectedness further reveals the postcolonial character of this political sphere. [less ▲]
