Background. Fetal liver disease is a rare antenatal disorder for which etiology is frequently unknown. Recently, congenital alloimmune hepatitis emerged as a major cause of antenatal liver disease. Its typical presentation can be as a severe neonatal liver failure with hepatic and extrahepatic iron overload, a clinical state called neonatal hemochromatosis. Methods. A pregnant woman was investigated for heterogeneous fetal hepatomegaly. Pregnancy was also complicated by fetal alloimmune thrombocytopenia. The newborn presented at birth with liver cirrhosis and mild liver dysfunction. Follow-up until 36 months showed progressive normalization of all liver parameters. All metabolic and infectious analyses were negative. Liver biopsy showed severe hepatitis with post-necrotic fibrosis and regenerative nodules. There was no iron overload. To search for immune injury, paraffine sections of the liver biopsy were stained with an antibody against the membrane attack complex (MAC, anti human c5b-9, Peter Whitington’s Lab, Children’s Memorial Hospital, Chicago, IL), the terminal complement cascade neoantigen occurring specifically in complement activation by the IgG-mediated classical pathway, and which is responsible for cell death. Results. Strong immunostaining against MAC-antigen was found in the liver of the patient, with 90% of target hepatocytes whereas in a control group of patients with other neonatal liver diseases, it was 10.8±12.5%. Because IgG in neonates originate only from the mother, it signs the alloimmune nature of the disease. Conclusion. For a long time, pathophysiology of neonatal hemochromatosis remained unsolved. Recently, it was elucidated as congenital alloimmune hepatitis. With this case, we expend the recognized clinical spectrum by showing that congenital alloimmune hepatitis can present as milder cases, without iron overload. It should be considered as a cause of unexplained neonatal liver disease, even in the absence of siderosis. Such diagnosis is of great importance regarding the necessity of immunotherapy in further pregnancies in order to avoid recurrence of alloimmune injury [less ▲]

The Treynor and Mazuy framework is a widely used return-based model of market timing, but existing corrections of the regression intercept can be manipulated through derivatives trading. We propose an adjustment based on Merton's option replication approach. The linear and quadratic coefficients of the regression are exploited to assess the cost of the replicating option that yields similar convexity for a passive portfolio. A similar reasoning applies for various timing patterns and in multi-factor models. Our empirical application shows that, unlike existing performance adjustment methods, the portfolio replication approach uncovers a positive link between the convexity and the performance of market timing funds.

Cet article est consacré à la modélisation numérique non linéaire des colonnes en béton armé soumises à un incendie. Dans ce travail nous analysons des colonnes en béton armé chargées par des efforts de compression excentrés et soumises à un feu normalisé. Du fait que les poteaux ont un rôle extrêmement important dans une construction, la vérification de leur résistance au feu dans les conditions d’incendie est cruciale. L’analyse se divise en deux étapes. Dans la première étape nous procédons à l’étude thermique des colonnes. Nous en déduisons les températures en fonction du temps que nous utilisons dans la deuxième étape pour l’étude mécanique. Lors de cette dernière nous obtenons les variations de différents paramètres tels que le moment fléchissant, les contraintes, les déplacements et le module tangent [less ▲]

Le problème de la violence résume pour ainsi dire l’œuvre de Jean-Paul Sartre. Il circonscrit souvent, en tout cas, les critiques qu’on lui adresse et, de façon fondamentale, la manière même dont on la lit. L’objet de cette communication sera de reprendre ce problème chez le dernier Sartre, de 1957 à 1973, c’est-à-dire de Questions de méthode à L’Idiot de la famille, à partir d’une analyse serrée de certaines interventions de Sartre sur le terrain politique ou plutôt juridico-politique. Je m’appuierai en particulier sur trois sources : l’intervention de Sartre au procès Ben Saddok (1957), sa préface aux Maos en France (1970) et sa conférence « Justice et État » (1973). Je souhaite mettre en évidence le travail d’élucidation politique que Sartre déploie à cette époque dans le cadre judiciaire, qu’il s’agisse de justice d’État ou de justice populaire. Chez Sartre, ce travail d’élucidation est inséparablement philosophique et littéraire. Il passe ainsi, d’une part, par un usage spécifique de la phénoménologie, dont Sartre a donné le programme dans son Esquisse d’une théorie des émotions, en une référence explicite à l’ontologie fondamentale de Heidegger ; il passe, d’autre part, par une reprise critique (philosophique et politique) de certaines références littéraires, en particulier de Malraux et de Camus dans le premier texte cité. L’Idiot de la famille propose la synthèse de cet effort : de faire de l’émotion une méthode (et non pas simplement d’explorer méthodiquement les émotions) et d’imprimer une torsion politique à la pratique littéraire (et non pas simplement d’y renoncer). À cette double condition, il peut être utile aujourd’hui de chercher, dans la philosophie de Sartre, certains moyens d’une heuristique de la violence et certains outils d’intelligibilité de ce qui, en dernière analyse, renvoie à la question de la liberté, autrement dit encore aux déterminations les plus fondamentales du partage entre puissance et impuissance.

Je voudrais ici tester l’hypothèse suivante : si le champ d’étude de l’image populaire (familiale) s’est vu parfois négliger par les théoriciens, peut-être est-ce à cause de l’écart radical que la photographie spécialisée, et en particulier la photographie artistique, a voulu établir entre elle et la photographie dite « domestique ». Comment (c’est-à-dire par quels moyens, théoriques ou artistiques) une certaine pratique de la photographie s’est-elle aujourd’hui instituée comme un art à part entière ? Plutôt et surtout : comment la noble pratique de la photographie a-t-elle réussi à prendre ses distances avec la photographie commune, pourtant omniprésente, jusqu’à l’évacuer presque totalement des préoccupations scientifiques ? Car il faut bien voir le paradoxe qui sous-tend ce problème : comment est-on parvenu à assigner à l’image commune (pourtant franchement majoritaire) un rôle aussi périphérique ? La place occupée par la photographie domestique dans les théories de la photographie reste incertaine. Quand elle n’est pas purement et simplement évacuée, l’image commune peut soit être « utilisée » pour porter un sens auquel elle ne prétendait pas, soit être prise en compte pour se voir aussitôt réduite à un stéréotype ; son caractère esthétique est dévalué, son style réduit à un non-style. En tenant à distance la culture la plus populaire, on agrandit certainement le gouffre qui sépare le théoricien des expériences vécues (des expériences sensibles). [less ▲]

Performance evaluation presents two specific difficulties for social enterprises. At the one hand, it is complex to define what performance is, to measure the factors impacting performance through indicators, and to sum up the scores of all the indicators. At the other hand, performance evaluation should vary with the purpose of the evaluation and the type of organization. Thus the characteristics of an ideal performance evaluation tool for social enterprises should both reflect this complexity and be contingent. [less ▲]

Emerging concerns about competitiveness induce a growing number of firms to outsource their outbound transportation operations to third-party logistics providers. The resulting increase in the number of actors often leads to sub-optimal supply chain actions due to the antagonistic nature of the economic objectives of the partners. With the aim of determining possible deviations from the optimal system performance in such supply chains, this study analyzes the contractual relation between a retailer and a third-party logistics provider (carrier) using game theoretical approaches. The partners of the studied supply chain play a Stackelberg game in which the retailer is the leader and the carrier is the follower. The retailer faces an uncertain demand and needs to supply his store from his warehouse. he has the option of not meeting all the demand but must satisfy at least a minimum proportion of the fi nall demand. On the other hand, the carrier has to determine the number of trucks needed to satisfy this demand before uncertainty is resolved. Once demand is realized, if the reserved transportation capacity is insufficient, the carrier also has the possibility to requisition trucks at a higher price. We modelise the problem and propose a contract having two parameters : the quantity of transported items and the number of truck used. In our settings, the retailer is the one that submits the contract and the carrier decides if he accepts it or not. We compare this situation with a centralized model where a single decision maker takes all the decisions. [less ▲]

The Design Space (DS) is defined as the set of factors settings (input conditions) that will provide results at least better than pre-defined acceptance limits. The proposed methodology aims at identifying a region in the space of factors that will likely provide satisfactory results during the future use of an analytical method or process in routine, through an optimization process. In a Bayesian framework, the responses are modelled using a multivariate multiple regression model allowing deriving their joint predictive posterior distribution. On the basis of this consequent distribution, a multi-criteria risk-based decision is taken with respect to the pre-defined acceptance limits. This aims to identify the DS. In this context, desirability methodologies are also applied to take the risk-based decision in a more flexible way. An example based on high-performance liquid chromatography illustrates the applicability of the methodology with highly correlated and constrained responses. [less ▲]

In a Model-Based Drug Development strategy, the first objective is to design studies such that the most reliable model estimates are obtained, in order to optimize the design of future studies and to take decisions based on predictions. The objectives of the work is to present from a theoretical and practical point of view how to perform trial predictions, as opposed to trial simulations, by integrating the uncertainty of the parameters. The difference between prediction and simulation is important in early development when limited data or prior information are available. Indeed ignoring the uncertainty of parameter estimates can lead to wrong decisions. First, will be provided methodology, derived from Bayesian statistics, to perform trial predictions from the parameter estimates and their uncertainty, when obtained with conventional frequentist population methods. Second, a practical implementation in R will be shown. This generalized prediction shell can cope with any kind of structural population models: Ordinary Differential Equation, single & multiple doses, infusion, etc... The proposed shell is also flexible to allow the testing of various scenarios and study designs, and therefore evaluate the predictive probability of success of different protocols. When joint models for efficacy and safety are established, the Prediction-based Clinical Utility Index (p-CUI) and its distribution can directly be obtained for more riskless decision making. Examples will be shown to highlight in early phases the differences existing between trial prediction and trial simulation. This approach is required to permit Model-Based Drug Development strategy, and impact successfully decision in early clinical phases. [less ▲]

The LIMA index conveys the environmental interest and quality of the landscape formed by the Mediterranean benthos, ranging from 0 to -40 m, in numerical format. The LIMA index allows a comparison spatially and temporarily between sites. It is a comprehensive index which is easy to implement and is composed of two factors: a topographical description (classification of 15 typologies) and a biological description (the presence or absence of some thirty species or groups of structuring, remarkable and invasive species). The LIMA index has been validated in the Bay of Calvi (Corsica-France) where it varies between 0.31 and 0.79 on a scale of 0.00 to 1.00. [less ▲]

Massive stars are characterized by a large radiation over gaz pressure ratio and a large temperature over density ratio. With increasing stellar initial mass, they suffer stronger stellar winds which plays an important role in the chemical enrichment of the galaxies. The induced mass loss affects also the evolution and internal structure of massive stars on the main sequence (MS) and on the post-main sequence phase (post-MS). Recent ground-based observations and space missions have shown the presence of pulsations in massive stars, such as accouctic and gravity modes excited by the $\kappa$-mechanism and even solar-like oscillations. Strange modes could also found to be excited in the most massive stars. $\kappa$-mechanism instability domains are presented for the upper HR diagram (up to $70$M$_{odot}$) on the MS and on the post-MS. We compute evolutionary tracks and non-adiabatic frequencies for different input parameters such as the metallicity, the mass loss rate and the overshooting parameter. [less ▲]

Most of the IPCC-AR4 Atmospheric Global Circulation Models (AGCM) predict an increase of the Antarctic Surface Mass Balance (SMB) during the 21st century that would mitigate global sea level rise. Present accumulation and predicted change are largest at the ice sheet margins because they are driven by snowfall, which mostly comes from warm, moist air arising over the land slopes. The coastal belt is also where complex processes of sublimation, melt and redistribution by the wind occur. Thus, high-resolution modelling (5 to 15 km) is necessary to adequately capture the effects of small-scale variations in topography on the atmospheric variables in this area, but limitations in computing resources prevent such resolution at the scale of Antarctica in full climate models. We present here a downscaling method leading to 15-km SMB resolution for century time-scales over Antarctica. We compute precipitation fields by considering orographic processes induced by the broad-scale and the fine-scale topography, and we estimate sublimation, melting and refreezing with a surface scheme validated for snow and ice-covered land surface. We display the SMB downscaled from LMDZ4 AGCM outputs (~60-km resolution), and compare the agreement of the broad-scale SMB and the downscaled SMB with 20th century observations. Then, we present hi-resolution features of the Antarctic SMB evolution during the 21st century downscaled from LMDZ4 and discuss the effect of the resolution on the Antarctic SMB contribution to sea level change. The downscaling model is a powerful tool that will be applied to others climate models for a better assessment of future sea level rise. [less ▲]

The human-macaque interface in Asia is increasingly the focus of numerous studies raising the issue of conflict over space and resources and searching for efficient management strategies. Documenting impacts of interactions with humans and the variations in macaques’ responses to anthropogenic habitats is essential for undertanding adaptation strategies and possibilities of a sustainable coexistence. The long-tailed macaque (Macaca fascicularis) is a very successful commensal species that adapts remarkably well to rural and urban landscapes. In some locations of Bali (Indonesia), this species, which has coexisted with humans for centuries, is used today to promote wildlife-based tourism, often characterized by an intense food provisioning. Here, we present data of a commensal M. fascicularis population in Bali (Uluwatu Temple), particularly well-habituated to human presence and provisioned daily. We analyze the impacts of the daily variations of three anthropogenic factors (microhabitat – human presence degree – food provisioning quantity) on the daily activity, ranging and dietary patterns. We used a focal and scan sampling methodology during a four-month study period between June and October 2010. Four groups constituted this population and their home ranges were particularly small, ranging from 2.4 to 5.6 ha. The eco-behavioural patterns were strongly and consistently influenced by variations in the anthropic factors. Typically, with a high anthropic level (defined as increasing degrees of each anthropogenic factor), macaques spent less time foraging and moving and more time feeding, resting and socializing. Contrary to previous studies on other primate species, we did not find any impact of provisioning on agonistic interactions. 55% of this population’s diet consisted of human foods, while the remainder (45%) of natural foods. Natural food items were preferentially consumed when anthropic level was low, emphasizing the opportunistic style of the diet. In summary, the eco-behavioural modifications induced by variations in anthropic levels did not increase the daily costs of living, confirming the flexibility and the efficiency of the macaques’ responses. However, we also illustrate in another study site (Ubud – Bali) the risk of overpopulation caused by the provisioning, which may potentially increase the human-macaque conflict. [less ▲]

A 3D high-order RANS solver in conservative variables has been developed, based on a discontinuous Galerkin/Symmetric Interior Penalty discretisation. The turbulence model is the well-known one-equation Spalart-Allmaras model. It is shown that in order to stabilise the discretization scheme, it is necessary to adapt the transpose penalty term, which introduces an explicit dependency of the continuity equation on the turbulent viscosity.

Social Networking Sites (SNS) provide a new platform for consumer/brand interaction on the Internet. On SNS, firms have the opportunity to create and manage a “brand page” in order to interact with SNS members. Brand pages allow interaction between the members of the page, as well as interaction between the members and the brand, namely brand tribalism and brand relationship. This paper investigates the functioning of SNS as a new platform for brand communities, integrating both consumer-brand relationship and brand communities. More specifically, we aim to understand the impact of brand-managed communities embedded in SNS on brand page commitment and brand commitment. Results show that members’ freedom of expression and recognition for contribution on the brand page impact positively brand pages commitment, which in turn impacts brand commitment. Consequently, brand commitment influences the members’ intention to generate positive word-of-mouth about the brand and willingness to engage in co-production. [less ▲]

This study is an investigation of the impact of brand pages on Social Networking Sites (SNS) in the creation of brand commitment. The main determinants of brand page commitment are evaluated before assessing its impact on brand commitment. Subsequently, some of the potential consequences of brand commitment are assessed. The empirical part of the study was conducted in collaboration with Netlog, the first European SNS. A questionnaire assessing the 9 variables of the model was answered by a sample of 250 Netlogers. The results show that the main determinants of brand page commitment are the freedom to express on the brand page and the recognition for contributing to it. Furthermore, the study revealed a favorable impact of brand page commitment on brand commitment. The two validated consequences of brand commitment in such a context are the intention to generate positive word-of-mouth about the brand and the willingness to co-produce. [less ▲]

Aurora on giant planets present many differences with the terrestrial aurora and the satellite footprints are among the most striking examples. Created by the interaction between the moons and the magnetospheric plasma, these auroral features are observed as spots or curtains located close to the field lines connecting the satellites to the planet. On Jupiter, the footprints of Io, Europa, and Ganymede have been discovered from ground observations in the infrared domain, Hubble Space Telescope observations in the ultraviolet domain, and Galileo spacecraft images in the visible domain. On Saturn, recent observations from the Cassini spacecraft tentatively identified the UV footprint of Enceladus. First we will briefly review the mechanisms driving these electro-magnetic interactions and their related observational evidences. Then we will discuss the characteristics of these various footprints, focusing on the better-studied cases of the Io and Ganymede footprints. We will see that the analysis of the footprint morphology, location, spatial extent, and brightness provides extremely valuable information both on the planetary magnetic field topology and on the processes at play in the interaction. And these processes are not so different from those creating some components of the Earth aurora. [less ▲]

Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and organochlorine pesticides like Dichloro-Diphenyl-Trichloroethane (DDTs), Hexachlorocyclohexanes (HCHs), aldrin, dieldrin and trace elements (Cd, Cu, Se, Pb, Zn and Hg) were analysed in the muscle of sea bass (Dicentrarchus labrax) sampled in coastal regions near several important European river mouths (Gironde, Charente, Loire, Seine and Scheldt). These potential endocrine disrupting chemicals were present in European coastal waters. Even if their concentrations were well below the Maximum Residue Limits set by the governments, they induced alterations of the endocrine system. We established correlations between contaminant concentrations and effects on the thyroid system in sea bass. The contaminants induced modifications of the metabolic pathways of thyroid hormones and enhanced thyroid hormone synthesis. The activity of T4 Outer Ring Deiodinase was increased, that leads to an intensified conversion of thyroxine (T4) to its more biologically active form triiodothyronine (T3). Meanwhile, the activity of T4 sulfatation was reduced, that leads to a lowered biliary excretion of thyroid hormones. The modified metabolic pathways of the thyroid hormones can be interpreted as a tool to homeostatically maintain the thyroid hormone status. Of all tested compounds, the higher chlorinated PCBs seemed to be the most implicated in this perturbation. The nature of thyroid hormone synthesis, signalling and regulation is highly conserved among vertebrates. Although we cannot extrapolate thyroid toxicity data directly from one species to another, these environmental factors may well affect thyroid function in other species, including humans. [less ▲]

Rangeland or natural arid pastures of Morocco are ecosystems where there is a natural or seminatural vegetation composed of steppes, shrubs and grassland. They cover about 82% of the Moroccan arid lands. These areas represent livelihoods for thousands of people and protect the country from desertification. Despite the importance of the rangelands and the threat of desertification, it is surprising that up to date there is no comprehensive assessment of their condition and their evolution, hindering any plan for desertification alleviation. However, the available information on selected pilot areas shows that these rangelands are threatened by desertification. It’s associated with biodiversity loss and contributes to climate change. The leading causes of land degradation are the human actions combined with climate. The establishment of a comprehensive surveillance system based on remote sensing, biophysics and socio-economic data must be envisaged to provide policymakers with an operational tool adapted to the spatio-temporal monitoring of desertification.

Si pour Werner Herzog le rôle du spectateur semble réduit à celui d’un récepteur passif, pour Alexander Kluge en revanche, le spectateur et sa mémoire des images doivent conduire à l’élaboration d’un sens supérieur que la subjectivité du seul auteur serait incapable de faire émerger. Mais, leurs pratiques documentaires respectives se fondent aussi sur la perception d’une figure complexe, celle du cinéaste, constitutive d’une relation que le film contribuera à instaurer entre le réalisateur et le spectateur. L'identification de cette figure permet de "réconcilier" Alexander Kluge et Werner Herzog, deux représentants du Nouveau Cinéma Allemand, que la plupart des histoires de ce cinéma opposaient jusqu'à présent.
