[more ▼]Artificial pastures are used to increase carrying capacity in the wet tropics by supplying higher quality forage (energy and protein) to the animals all year long. Sowing pastures is labour-intensive so to be profitable all other possible growth limiting factors, especially minerals, should be alleviated. We studied nutrients intake (energy, protein and minerals) in cattle grazing Urochloa sp. pastures in Western DRC. Three Urochloa ruziziensis and 3 U. decumbens pastures in Kolo-Fuma (Bas-Congo, DRC) were studied. Three Ndama steers and 3 cows grazing each pasture consecutively during the short rainy and dry seasons were followed by handplucking and samples were analysed for energy, crude protein and ash to calculate energy value (fodder units, FU) and digestible crude protein content (DCP) of the diets. NIRS was used on faeces to determine dry matter (DM) intake and ICP-AES to determine mineral content of the diets. Intake levels reached 66 ± 4.3 g kg-1LW0.75, nutritive value of forage was 0.701 ± 0.036 FU and 4.78 ± 1.04 % DCP, allowing daily weight gains > 550 g for steers and > 350 g for cows. P, Ca, Mg, K, Mn & Fe were provided above requirements by the pasture. Na, Cu and Zn were deficient, especially during the short dry season for Cu and Zn. U. ruziziensis pastures tended to provide more minerals, especially during the rainy season. A mineral supplement providing Na, Cu and Zn is required to reach the daily weight gains allowed by energy and protein supplies. The supplement could reasonably be similar for U. decumbens and U. ruziziensis pastures, but the dry season formula should provide more Cu and Zn than the rainy season formula [less ▲]Detailed reference viewed: 64 (14 ULg) Influence of practice characteristics on injury risk in young athletesFrisch, Anne ; Urhausen, Axel; Seil, Romain et alin British Journal of Sports Medicine (2011), 45Detailed reference viewed: 47 (7 ULg) New alginate-chitosan hydrogel beads with anti-inflammatory and anabolic effects on human chondrocytesOprenyeszk, Frédéric ; Sanchez, Christelle ; Dubuc, Jean-Emile et alin Arthritis and Rheumatism (2011), 63(10), 697Detailed reference viewed: 66 (9 ULg) One-loop finite corrections to seesaw neutrino massesAristizabal Sierra, Diego in PoS - Proceedings of Science (2011)In the standard seesaw model, finite corrections to the neutrino mass matrix arise from one-loop self-energy diagrams mediated by heavy neutrinos.

[more ▼]Endocrine system disruption has become a subject of great interest over the last few decades, since it has become evident that natural and also synthetic substances can mimic or reduce the activity of endogenous hormones. Compounds with estrogenic activity are an important family of potential endocrine disruptors that have to be monitored either in the food chain or in the environment. Estrogens are known to induce or promote hormonal dependent cancers, to reduce sperm counts and fertility in men and generate the feminization of exposed wildlife populations. The rapid screening of unwanted chemicals in the food chain is beset by difficulties. The number of toxic compounds is very large and no universal method can cope with their diversity. In this work, emergent differential proteomic techniques are used to discover a set of biomarkers for the development of a multiple estrogen contaminants screening test.

More recently, during excavation of the entrance system of the fortification, a pot hole and a waste accumulation zone have been analysed. These structures contained abundant archaeological material (ceramic sherd, lithic and bone artefact and fauna). Three radiometric dates have been obtained. The ceramic assemblage is typical of the Belgian Michelsberg and a decorated vase shows Bischheim affinities.

As a consequence it follows that many related sequences are either k-automatic or k-regular. These include many sequences previously studied in the literature, such as the recurrence function, the appearance function, and the repetitivity index. We also give a new characterization of the class of k-regular sequences. Many results extend to other sequences defined in terms of Pisot numeration systems.

[more ▼]Image appraisal is a problem frequently encountered in electrical resistivity tomography (ERT), and more generally in non-linear geophysical inversion. It may include several aspects such as the identification of the geometry of buried structures, the detection of numerical artefacts, the estimation of the depth of investigation or the exactitude of inverted parameters. Geophysicists can rely on several tools published in the literature to address these issues. However, few studies offer a quantitative comparison on the performance of these tools concerning the different mentioned aspects. Moreover, to our knowledge, there is no commonly accepted methodology to handle image appraisal. In this contribution, we compared quantitatively the ability of different image appraisal indicators to reach different objectives (geometry, artefacts, depth of investigation, parameter resolution). Among possible image appraisal tools, the model resolution matrix (MRM), the cumulative sensitivity matrix (CSM) and the depth of investigation index (DOI) are the most cited ones and were studied here. We compared them first on numerical models representing different geological situations. This numerical benchmark showed that indicators based on the MRM and CSM were the more appropriate to appraise ERT images in terms of the geometry of structures and the exactitude of inverted parameters, DOI providing mainly qualitative information. On this basis, we propose a methodology to appraise field ERT images focusing on the resolution and geometric aspects (others being implicitly studied). First, True Synthetic Models (TSM), representing simplified cases of field ERT images, are built using available information. Then, through forward modelling, synthetic ERT data are computed and inverted to provide the Inverted Synthetic Models (ISM). Afterwards, a comparison between TSM and ISM (or their gradients for geometry) is made in order to define the errors on inverted parameters. This discrepancy is then plotted with respect to resolution indicator values and points out in every tested cases a resolution range over which the errors abruptly increase allowing the definition of threshold values. The final step consists in applying the threshold values on the field ERT images and to validate the results with a posteriori knowledge.

[more ▼]In the field of structural health monitoring or machine condition monitoring, the activation of nonlinear dynamic behavior complicates the procedure of damage or fault detection. Blind source separation (BSS) techniques are known as efficient methods for damage diagnosis. However, most of BSS techniques repose on the assumption of the linearity of the system and the need of many sensors. This article presents some possible extensions of those techniques that may improve the damage detection, e.g. Enhanced-Principal Component Analysis (EPCA), Kernel PCA (KPCA) and Blind Modal Identification (BMID). The advantages of EPCA rely on its rapidity of use and its reliability. The KPCA method, through the use of nonlinear kernel functions, allows to introduce nonlinear dependences between variables. BMID is adequate to identify and to detect damage for generally damped systems. In this paper, damage is firstly examined by Stochastic Subspace Identification (SSI); then the detection is achieved by comparing subspace features between the reference and a current state through statistics and the concept of subspace angle. Industrial data are used as illustration of the methods.

[more ▼]Long-lasting debates question whether faces are special stimuli treated preferentially by our visual system or whether prioritized processing of faces is simply due to increased salience of their constituting features. To examine this issue, we used a visual search task in which participants had to make a saccade to the circle with a unique color among a set of six circles. Critically, there was a task-irrelevant object located next to each circle. We examined how an upright face, an inverted face or a butterfly, presented near the target or non-target circles affected eye movements to the target. Upright (13.12%) and inverted faces (10.8%) located away from the target circle captured the eyes more than butterflies (8.5%), but upright faces captured the eyes more than inverted faces. Moreover, when faces were next to the target, upright faces, and to some extent inverted faces, facilitated the saccades towards the target. Faces are thus salient and capture attention. More importantly however above and beyond their raw salience based on low-level features, canonical upright faces capture attention stronger than inverted faces. Therefore, faces are ‘special’ and our visual system is tuned to their meaning and not only to low-level features making up a face.

[more ▼]In the field of structural health monitoring or machine condition moni-toring, most vibration based methods reported in the literature require to measure responses at several locations on the structure. In machine condition monitoring, the number of available vibration sensors is often small and it is not unusual that only one single sensor is used to monitor a machine. This paper presents industrial applications of two possible extensions of output-only Blind Source Separation (BSS) techniques, namely Principal Component Analysis (PCA) and Second Order Blind Identification (SOBI). Through the use of block Hankel matrices, these methods may be used when a reduced set of sensors or even one single sensor is available. The objective is to address the problem of fault detection in mechanical systems using subspace-based methods. The detection is achieved by comparing the subspace features between the reference and a current state using the concept of angular coherence between subspaces.

[more ▼]Soil and water conservation is a big issue of this century. The soil is a non renewable resource. As we know, the change in climate brings more short erosive rainfall with a high capacity to take away the topsoil. Moreover, topsoil contains all the nutrients the plants needs. It is now essential that we found a new balance between productivity and durability. Impacts of new agricultural techniques on soil structure are already studied in different countries (i.e. Beckers et al., 2010; Walh et al., 2004; Malone et al., 2003). But what are the impacts on erosion? That is a question with few answers. And this is where our experiment comes, in order to link erosion and future erosion with management practices. Two ways exist to act against soil losses: enhancing soil structure or increasing vegetation cover. Our study aims at measuring soil losses and runoff under different practices and for a future scenario of climate change. This study explores new practices and measures their effects on erosion and runoff under a future rainfall. We focus on two cultures: sugar beet and maize. Each is tested under three different systems. For sugar beet soil structure impact is monitored: three tillage systems are tested: winter ploughing, fall ploughing and fall topsoiling. For maize vegetation cover impact is monitored: three seeding systems are studied: classical seeding (75 cm interrow), classical seeding with Ray-grass seeding in the interrows, and distributed seeding (obtained with a grains seeder). Rainfall simulation has been chosen for the study so the impacts of climate change can also be tested. A future rainfall was calculated based on a climate change scenario for Belgium (CCI-HYDR project, Willems, 2006-2010). A basic current rainfall of 100 years return period and 30 minutes duration (correspondent intensity: 70 mm/h) entered into the model gives the new rainfall. After the application of the scenario, the new rainfall has an intensity of 80 mm/h. This is our future rainfall used in this experiment. The simulations of this rainfall were carried on during the main crop season (between June and August). Three simulations were performed on sugar beet and two on maize on plots with the dimensions: 3 m length and 90 cm and 120 cm width respectively for sugar beet and maize (corresponding to two rows of the main culture). During each simulation soil losses and runoff quantities were measured. From the first year experiment, some tendencies can be observed. The topsoiling on sugar beet culture seems to produce less soil losses when the winter ploughing gives the lower quantities of runoff. The distributed seeding for the maize culture gives the lower rates for both soil losses and runoff quantities. Our experiment will be repeated at least for the next two years with new future rainfall to be tested. The climatic conditions are an important factor which can modify the behavior of soil response under rainfall event. More research has to be done in order to improve our knowledge of runoff and erosion phenomenon at smaller scale.

[more ▼]In the Continuous Casting process, products are sometimes rejected or called defective due to the presence of transversal cracks. This type of macroscopic damage is expected to be due to a ductility loss during cooling in the bending and unbending areas of the CC line. In order to study this damage, a 2D model has been developed to predict at the mesoscopic level the intergranular crack event taking into account the creep and diffusion of voids. Already validated for a microalloyed steel, the model is identified and used in this study to predict the crack formation for three different grades of peritectic steels. Results show encouraging predictions of the damage.

[more ▼]The adolescent period is characterized by behavioral and neurobiological changes, which might predispose adolescents to the long-term negative consequences of alcohol. For example, enhanced risks of alcohol dependence are reported when drinking is initiated early. In the present studies, we used Swiss female mice to test whether chronic ethanol injections during adolescence durably affect the sensitivity to the stimulant effects of ethanol in adulthood. In a first set of experiments, several groups of young (28 day-old) mice were daily injected with various ethanol doses (1.5 – 4 g/kg) to test for ethanol sensitization during adolescence in comparison to adult mice exposed to the same schedule of ethanol injections. The results show that young mice express much higher stimulant effects after acute ethanol injections. However, they also require higher ethanol doses than adult mice to develop a sensitization to the stimulant effects of ethanol. In a second set of experiments, 28 day-old mice were sensitized to ethanol for 14 days with high ethanol doses (2.5 or 4 g/kg) and then tested for the stimulant effects of ethanol and the development of ethanol sensitization in adulthood. The results of this second set of experiments show that mice sensitized to ethanol during their adolescence remain more sensitive to the acute stimulant effects of ethanol in adulthood, especially when high ethanol doses were administered. However, the rate of the development of a sensitization to this effect was only slightly affected relative to adult mice exposed to a chronic ethanol regimen for the first time. Together, these results indicate that adolescent mice are more sensitive to the stimulant effects of ethanol but require higher ethanol doses to develop a sensitization. However, when a sensitization develops during adolescence, these mice still experience higher ethanol stimulant effects when tested in adulthood.

[more ▼]NMHC (non-methane hydrocarbons) are a major group of atmospheric trace gases with impact on photochemical processes in the atmosphere, especially oxidant formation with ozone being the most prominent of them, and contributions to SOA (secondary organic aerosols). By this, they are coupled to climate issues via the oxidizing capacity of the atmosphere, the greenhouse gas ozone and aerosol effects. NMHC monitoring was initiated in Europe in the “Tropospheric Ozone Research” project (1988-1995), and it was continued in EMEP and GAW (Global Atmosphere Watch) where it is an ongoing initiative which recently has been reinforced (GAW Report 171). In this presentation we will focus on time series from Central European mountain stations (46-49°N, 7-13°E): Hohenpeissenberg (985 m, DWD, Germany, 1998-ongoing), Rigi (1031 m, EMPA, Switzerland, 2003-ongoing), Junfraujoch (3580 m, EMPA, Switzerland, 2000-ongoing, and ULg (FTIR), Belgium, 1984-ongoing), Zugpitze (2650 m, UBA, Germany, 2000-ongoing), Schauinsland (1205 m, FZ-Jülich (1989-94), and UBA, Germany, 2004-ongoing), Brotjacklriegel (1016 m, UBA, Germany, 2000-2004), Donon (775 m, EMD, France, 1997-2007). Most sites used weekly flask samples but also on-line measurements were carried out with higher time resolution within the former TOR project and in the more recent time series at Hohenpeissenberg, Rigi, and Jungfraujoch. All samples were analysed by GC. Additionally to these GC measurements, a time series of column integrated acetylene and ethane by FTIR (Fourier Transform InfraRed spectrometry) is available from Jungfraujoch, from 1984 onwards. We focus here on time series of monthly averages of anthropogenic hydrocarbons over the 1997-2009 time period. They show quite similar patterns among the various stations over the whole period with pronounced seasonal cycles. Significantly lower mixing ratios were measured at the highest elevated sites, the Zugspitze and Jungfraujoch. Differences between the lower mountain sites (775-1200 m) are on first view surprisingly small. Generally, the differences between the high altitude and the other mountain sites are lowest in summer due to enhanced vertical mixing and thermal upslope winds. Downward trends for anthropogenic hydrocarbons are very similar at the various stations and are 2 %/yr for C2-C3 alkanes (+/- 1%), 3-6 %/yr for C4-C7 alkanes (+/- 2%), 2-3%/yr for C2-C3 alkynes and ethene (+/- 2%), 4 % /yr for propene and benzene (+/- 2%), and 5-10%/yr for toluene and xylenes (+/-3 and 5%, respectively).

[more ▼]By analyzing first-principles molecular-dynamics simulations of different telluride amorphous networks, we develop a method for the enumeration of radial and angular topological constraints, and show that the phase diagram of the most popular system Ge-Sb-Te can be split into two compositional elastic phases: a tellurium rich flexible phase and a stressed rigid phase that contains most of the materials used in phase-change applications. This sound atomic scale insight should open new avenues for the understanding of phase-change materials and other complex amorphous materials from the viewpoint of rigidity.

[more ▼]The floods have always been the main concern resulting of extreme weather conditions. Now droughts and low flows are more and more recognized as risk situations due to the huge consequences of water shortage. Furthermore, the changing climate context constitutes a new threat even if the uncertainty in low-flows evolution remains high. In Wallonia (Southern part of Belgium), a knowledge gap remains on statistical analysis of low-flows. In this paper, we present a study of historical data in Walloon Region and the first steps of their statistical analysis. Wallonia is one of the three regions of Belgian federal state. It covers an area of 17000 km² and spreads on 4 districts (Meuse, Escaut, Rhin, Senne). The watercourses are divided in navigable watercourses (700km), not navigable watercourses that are listed in 3 categories (14300km) and streams that are not navigable and not listed (4000km). Hydrological monitoring has a short history in Wallonia. The first monitoring site was installed in 1960. It consisted in a limnimetric scale and daily manual readings. Since 1974, hourly data are recorded. The number of measurement sites reached 244 stations in 2011. About 60 % of the monitoring sites have less than 20 years of hourly data. A qualitative analysis of monitoring stations led us to disregard 184 stations. The main quality problems were important discharge rating curve extrapolation, algae development in summer or low flow inferior to 5l/s. In preparation for a statistical analysis of low-flows, the old manual daily readings were analyzed. Unusable in high flow situations, they still hold practical and usable information during drought. This analysis allowed us to extend the registration period up of 7 stations and to recover 16 stations. There were lots of missing data during the 1960-1994 period, due to a poor management of the monitoring network. A yearly hydrograph analysis leads us to keep years of partial measurement when the gaps were found to be out of the low-flow period. The monitoring sites presenting more than 20 years of readings were selected for the statistical analysis. A homogeneity test was performed. Finally 64 out of 244 monitoring sites are kept for the frequency analysis. The indicators used to characterize low-flows are the popular Q95 and MAM7. Five below bounded distributions are tested with the HYFRAN software: Weibull (2 parameters), log-normal 2 parameters and 3 parameters, Gamma and Pearson type III. The parameters of the laws are estimated by the maximum likelihood estimation. The selection of the three best laws is performed for each site thanks to three Bayesian criterions proposed by HYFRAN. Then the distribution that fits the best the data is visually chosen. The results of the adjustment method are the same for the two indicators. The Gamma distribution is the most used followed by the lognormal with 2 parameters. However in some cases a law of three parameters is more appropriate. This preliminary work gives a first analysis of low-flows statistics in Wallonia. Yet a lot of missing data or short recording duration still limits our knowledge, this analysis allows us to progress towards best management practices in rivers and watersheds.

[more ▼]The forbidden lines are difficult to analyse because their detection requires high spectral and spatial resolutions. Their analysis is however interesting because it allows the determination of the spatial distribution and the production rate of the parent molecules, supposedly H2O which doesn't have any feature in the optical range. But as shown by Cochran [2] [3], some issues remain about the nature of the parents of the oxygen atoms. Moreover the width of the green line was found larger than that of the red lines. One of the goals of this study is to determine the parent species that photo-dissociate to produce oxygen atoms and see how this process depends on the heliocentric distance. We present here the results of the analysis of a homogeneous set of high quality spectra of 13 different comets observed with UVES at the ESO VLT since 2002 [4] [5].

[more ▼]ATP-gated P2X1 ion channels contribute to arterial thrombosis by amplifying platelet activation. In the search for novel anti-platelet strategies, targeting P2X1 ion channels is appealing. However, in this study we found that lack or inhibition of P2X1 channels enhanced neutrophil respiratory burst activity ex vivo.
To study the consequence of P2X1 deficiency on neutrophil function in vivo, P2X1-/- mice were used in a model of endotoxin-induced sepsis. Upon injection of lipopolysaccharides (LPS), plasma myeloperoxidase (MPO) concentrations reached higher levels in the P2X1-/- mice, and circulating neutrophils expressed higher levels of surface CD11b compared to wild-type mice. Neutrophil relocalization into the lungs of LPS-treated P2X1-/- mice was also significantly augmented, reflecting a higher activation state of P2X1-/- neutrophils under conditions of sepsis. Accordingly, more extensive lipid peroxidation was observed in the liver of LPS-treated P2X1-/- mice, indicative of exaggerated oxidative damage. Concomitantly, the levels of thrombin-antithrombin complexes were higher in the plasma of LPS-treated P2X1-/- mice and thrombocytopenia was worsened as compared to wild type mice. Elevated numbers of microthrombi were also found in the lungs of these mice. These observations coincided with a higher susceptibility of P2X1-/- mice to LPS-induced septic shock than wild type animals.
