When philosophers deal with the issue of the difference between human and animal beings, there is always a double ‘‘we’’ that imposes itself: ‘‘we’’ know that ‘‘we’’ are different. In order to resist these ‘‘we’s’’ the author has explored certain situations in which human and animals work together, and more extensively the everyday practices of cow and pig breeders. Interviewing the breeders, however, highlights an important issue: might the question of ‘‘the’’ difference, as philosophers have outlined it, be of interest to those who work with animals? Letting them construct ‘‘their’’ questions, we learn that these practices are best described in terms of achievement. Therefore, the questions that breeders think should be addressed are not the differences between human and non-human beings but rather the differences between situations, which offer both humans and animals different opportunities to accomplish subjectivities.

The aim of this research was threefold: 1) to improve the values of bedload mobilisation discharge in gravel bed rivers, 2) to determine the bedload velocity over the short and long term and 3) to quantify bedload transport and to examine bedload discharge in relation to the stream power and to the excess stream power. Since 2006, we used the PIT-tag technique in order to mark pebbles from Ardennian rivers. Ten rivers of different geomorphological properties were fitted out with PIT-tags (in 18 different sites) and 67 surveys were carried out after hydrological events. These data allow a valuable relationship between the stream power during floods and the size of the biggest elements mobilised to be proposed. This relation is obtained for medium sized rivers (50-200 km²) with bed material composed of gravel (D50 between 2 and 10 cm). Furthermore, we also obtained good relationships between the average transport distance and the excess of stream power reached during the hydrological events. In order to estimate the bedload virtual velocity over a longer time scale, we applied these relationships to the hydrological events recorded by gauging stations over more than 30 years. We obtained values of virtual velocity which are between 2 km/century for a low energy river with a sinuous bed and well developed riffle-pool sequences (Rulles River – 20 W/m² at Qb) and 11 km/century in a more powerful river with a straight channel (Aisne River – 100 W/m² at Qb) and a sub-flat bed. The propagation velocity of bedload is therefore influenced by the energy available. However, it is also necessary to take into account the river pattern, the characteristics of the armoured layer and the presence of potential trapping sites. [less ▲]

Among livestock types, beef cattle production is ranked as a very important sub-sector in the extremely harsh natural conditions characterising the northern uplands of Vietnam, where ethnic minorities are often concentrated on land resources which are not hospitable to crops. To help local people to escape from poverty, many organisations have initiated development projects featuring beef cattle production, but it still remains under-developed, hence the generally high level of poverty faced by farmers. <br /> <br />Thus, the study aims to assess the characteristics and appropriateness of beef cattle feeding systems, which are compared from the point of view of sustainability. <br /> <br />Stratified sampling was used to select 97 households within free-range, part-time grazing, and cut-and-carry feeding systems, which were surveyed in Bac Kan province between 2007 and 2009. The collection of field data was implemented using various survey instruments such as structured questionnaires and interview guides. Data processing consisted in descriptive statistics, correlations between the variables, and the calculation of socio-economic indicators. Based on the sample surveyed, the differences between the three systems of cattle management were highlighted. <br /> <br />Access to grazing land and its topography, the ethnicity of the communities, the relative importance of agricultural and forest production, and opportunities for off-farm employment were all factors influencing the cattle systems. Those using the “cut-and-carry” fodder system are practicing the most efficient husbandry style among the systems from both the social and economic points of view, except for lack of proper management and use of cattle manure. Manure use for cultivation in this system was limited because of the predominantly steep slope lands and the habits of the indigenous peoples. Animal manure utility was evaluated as less important in the cut-and-carry system compared to other systems practiced in the lowlands. <br /> <br />However, good prospects are seen to improve conditions in the rural uplands in the future. Thus, different strategies should be implemented to fill the gap and improve the position of farmers. The study derives helpful recommendations for farmers keeping beef cattle to strongly develop their production, alleviate poverty, and improve their livelihoods. [less ▲]

In this article we describe the organization of the ovine BEGAIN gene, located 138 kb proximally from the imprinted DLK1 gene and 203 kb from the CLPG mutation that causes the callipyge phenotype. We have shown that in sheep BEGAIN is ubiquitously expressed, including in skeletal muscle, throughout development. We have identified four major BEGAIN transcripts resulting from a combination of alternate promoter usage and alternative splicing. In ovine brain, kidney, liver, and skeletal muscle, these four BEGAIN transcripts exhibited paternal or biallelic expression in a tissue- and promoter-specific manner. Our results indicate that the CLPG mutation does not alter transcript levels of BEGAIN, contrary to its effect on a core cluster of genes in the DLK1-GTL2 domain. Thus, although the BEGAIN gene represents another paternally expressed gene in the ovine DLK1-GTL2 imprinted domain, its expression is not governed by the long-range regulatory element that contains the CLPG mutation.

Overbeet is de meest voorkomende congenitale tandafwijking bij het veulen. Minimale overbeten behoeven waarschijnlijk geen specifieke behandeling echter in erg aangetaste dieren kunnen zich secundaire tandproblemen ontwikkelen. Erge overbeet kan gemakkelijk bij het onvolwassen dier door middel van een orthodontische behandeling worden aangepakt. Hiertoe wordt een beugel geplaatst die de groei van de maxilla remt. Bij volwassen dieren echter zal een erge overbeet enkel middels een dure en invasieve chirurgische ingreep gecorrigeerd kunnen worden. Dit artikel geeft een overzicht van de courante terminologie ter beschrijving van overbeet bij het paard en bespreekt achtereenvolgens de verschillende mogelijkheden tot correctie van deze afwijking bij onvolwassen en volwassen dieren.

Anxiety disorders are known to be comorbid with migraine, and cortical spreading depression (CSD) is the most likely cause of the migraine aura. To search for possible correlations between susceptibility to CSD and anxiety we used the open field test in male Sprague-Dawley rats chronically treated with the preventive anti-migraine drugs valproate or riboflavin. Animals avoiding the central area of the open field chamber and those with less exploratory activity (i.e. rearing) were considered more anxious. After 4 weeks of treatment CSDs were elicited by application of 1M KCl over the occipital cortex and the number of CSDs occurring over a 2h period was compared to the previously assessed open field behavior. Higher anxiety-like behavior was significantly correlated with a higher frequency of KCl-induced CSDs. In saline-treated animals, fewer rearings were found in animals with more frequent CSDs (R=-1.00). The duration of ambulatory episodes in the open field center correlated negatively with number of CSDs in the valproate group (R=-0.83; p<0.005) and in riboflavin treated group (R=-0.69; p<0.05) as well as total time spent in the open field center in both groups (R=-0.75; p<0.05 and R=-0.58; p<0.1 respectively). These results suggest that anxiety symptoms are associated with susceptibility to CSD and might explain why it can be an aggravating factor in migraine with aura. [less ▲]

The effect of desialylation of rat and human transferrins on hepatocyte processing of the protein and its iron was studied in rats. No alteration in early transferrin catabolism was observed. Radioiron disappearance from the plasma and liver iron uptake were more rapid for asialotransferrins than for normal transferrins (P less than .001). Furthermore, radioiron plasma clearance of human tri-sialotransferrin was faster (P less than .05) and liver uptake higher (P less than .002) than for human pentasialotransferrin. When the asialoglycoprotein receptor was blocked by the prior injection of asialofetuin, asialotransferrin behaved like normal transferrin. When the transferrin receptor was blocked by the prior injection of 50 mg human diferric transferrin, iron uptake from all transferrins was delayed to such an extent that uptake through both receptors seemed to be affected. Approximately 90% of the hepatic radioiron from all transferrins was chelated by desferrioxamine and excreted into the bile, indicating its uptake by the hepatocyte rather than the reticuloendothelial (RE) cell. The rate of iron release into the plasma and its subsequent accumulation in the red cell mass over a 2-week period was similar for human asialotransferrin, ferritin, and hemoglobin iron. This study 1) confirmed that asialotransferrin-iron uptake by the hepatocyte is mediated by both transferrin and asialoglycoprotein receptors; 2) demonstrated that not only asialotransferrin but also transferrin of low sialic acid content will increase iron turnover and lead to excessive iron loading of the hepatocyte; 3) and showed that the intrahepatocyte metabolism of asialotransferrin-iron did not differ from that of iron delivered by normal transferrin.

Crossed-magnetic-field effects on bulk high-temperature superconductors have been studied both experimentally and numerically. The sample geometry investigated involves finite-size effects along both (crossed-)magnetic-field directions. The experiments were carried out on bulk melt-processed Y-Ba-Cu-O single domains that had been premagnetized with the applied field parallel to their shortest direction (i.e., the c axis) and then subjected to several cycles of the application of a transverse magnetic field parallel to the sample ab plane. The magnetic properties were measured using orthogonal pickup coils, a Hall probe placed against the sample surface, and magneto-optical imaging. We show that all principal features of the experimental data can be reproduced qualitatively using a two-dimensional finite-element numerical model based on an E-J power law and in which the current density flows perpendicularly to the plane within which the two components of magnetic field are varied. The results of this study suggest that the suppression of the magnetic moment under the action of a transverse field can be predicted successfully by ignoring the existence of flux-free configurations or flux-cutting effects. These investigations show that the observed decay in magnetization results from the intricate modification of current distribution within the sample cross section. The current amplitude is altered significantly only if a field-dependent critical current density Jc(B) is assumed. Our model is shown to be quite appropriate to describe the cross-flow effects in bulk superconductors. It is also shown that this model does not predict any saturation of the magnetic induction, even after a large number (~ 100) of transverse field cycles. These features are shown to be consistent with the experimental data. (C) The American Physical Society. [less ▲]
