In last decades, farmland biodiversity came under large threat. To counteract farmland biodiversity loss and other environmental impacts of intensive agriculture, European farmers can apply Agri-environmental schemes. One of these is the creation of flower strips, a part of the cropping field where flowers are sown or naturally settled. Flower strips are known to increase biodiversity in the agricultural landscape, notably attracting specific insects groups, such as pollinators and natural enemies that can provide valuable pollination and biocontrol services to the crop. However, the plant species composition and management of the strips can have a large influence on the identity and amount of useful insects present in the strips, suggesting the need to develop tailored flower strips to maximize the services delivered. Functional diversity (FD) is sometimes proposed as a promising approach, focusing on plant functional traits rather than plant species itself. Yet, it is not certain that sowing a set of plant species results in the desired vegetation with the desired functional trait composition. Species from soil seed bank or dispersing from neighboring vegetation can settle in the strip, while sown species might not always be equally adapted to local conditions. To test this, we developed seed mixtures with four different levels of FD, based on flower traits, and sew them as flower strips in a conventional arable field. We monitored the vegetation to calculate the FD of the realized vegetation. While the absolute FD values of the realized vegetation were lower than the expected FD values, the realized vegetation showed the same FD gradient as expected from the sown mixtures, indicating that it is possible to manipulate FD in flower strips.

Two-dimensional speckle tracking (2DST) is a non-invasive technique used in many species to evaluate global and regional left ventricular (LV) function; however it received little attention in the bovine species. The aim of this study was to assess the feasibility and reliability of 2DST for the evaluation of circumferential and radial LV wall motions in calves. Fourteen Holstein black calves (age: 62 11.6 days; body weight: 75.25 5.4 kg) were used in this observational study. Right parasternal short axis views at the level of the papillary muscles were recorded and subsequently analysed by 2DST for global and regional radial and circumferential strains and strain rates, radial displacement, rotation and rotation rate. Echocardiographic examinations were performed in unsedated, standing calves by two different observers to evaluate intra- and interobserver repeatability and variability. 2DST was feasible in all calves but 2 were excluded from analyses (ventricular septum defect and resting heart rate above 120 bpm, respectively). Automated tracking was better in systole than in diastole. Intraobserver repeatability was good to moderate for most systolic global and segmental peak values. Systolic peak values for radial strain and strain rate were more repeatable than for circumferential strain, circumferential train rate and diastolic measurements. Variability of the interobserver measurements was greater than the intraobserver measurements. Two-dimensional speckle tracking is feasible in calves and as in other species systolic radial function can be more reliably evaluated than circumferential and diastolic function. [less ▲]

In this work the stability of TiN and TiC nanopowders in isopropyl alcohol as well as the fabrication of dense and well adhered thin coatings based on TiN and TiC by electrophoretic deposition (EPD) have been evaluated in terms of zeta potential and mass deposited when hydrazine is added. The surface of TiN and TiC nanoparticles has been modified to improve the dispersion in isopropyl alcohol adding a cationic polymer (polyethylenimine) as dispersant with two different molecular weights. The influence of acidic/basic character of the solvent also has been evaluated in order to reach the most efficient EPD process. It was found that the adsorption of polyethylenimine with higher molecular weight can preserve the homogeneity of TiC coatings. The surface of TiN nanoparticles can be tuned in order to achieve a similar polyethylenimine adsorption which also improves the deposition in basic media. [less ▲]

Reducing pesticide use is one the major issues of today’s agriculture. Among other possibilities, attracting and conserving pest natural enemies in agricultural landscapes by providing them habitats is promising. Wildflower strips (WFS) sown at field margins are one of these potential habitats. They are known to attract and conserve a large diversity of insects, as they provide them food resources such as pollen and nectar, as well as shelter and overwintering sites. However, the risk of attracting insect pests at field margins may represent an obstacle to their adoption by farmers. Conversely, it would be interesting if such WFS could play the role of pest trap crops. In an experimental field sown with WFS intercropped with oilseed rape (OSR) (Brassica napus L.), its coleopteran pests were trapped in both WFS and OSR using yellow pan traps between April and June 2014. More than 130 000 Meligethes spp., Ceutorhynchus spp. and Psylliodes chrysocephalla (L.) adults were trapped. Meligethes spp., Ceutorhynchus spp. were significantly more abundant in the OSR compared with WFS when adults emerged and populations reached their abundance peak. Before and between these periods, the few adults trapped were significantly more abundant in the WFS compared with the OSR. Concerning P. chrysocephala, too few individuals were caught for analysis. Results showed that OSR was more attractive than WFS when coleopteran pests were abundant. In this study, WFS sown for insect conservation may neither favour insect pest conservation at field margin, nor be considered as trap crops. [less ▲]

L’aménagement transsexuel comme solution à l’adolescence La transsexualité est souvent banalisée par les médias, séduits par l’idée facile à vendre d’une âme sexuée, donc du drame de la possible inadéquation entre le sexe psychique et le sexe corporel. L’observation clinique rigoureuse de son élaboration plaide cependant pour une architecture complexe, résultant d’une dynamique subtile entre le psychisme, l’histoire et l’environnement. En effet, dans l’analyse d’un cas clinique, nous constatons que, face au risque de l’effondrement identitaire d’une structure fragile le Moi tente de se renforcer par l’organisation de mécanismes de défense qui élabore une nouvelle identité étayée sur un physique transité vers l’autre sexe. Si l’on analyse les interactions précoces sous l’angle de la formation de l’identité sexuelle, le noyau « genré » du Moi peut subir une double attaque, par manque d’identification au même et par attaque mortifère du différent. Le Moi se trouve ainsi délié et persécuté par des objets partiels ou peu introjectés. A l’adolescence, moment potentiellement traumatique de la sexuation, le jeune se trouve confronté à l’interrogation sur son identité sexuelle, et lorsque le noyau « genré » s’est précisément trouvé fragilisé, l’angoisse surgit, avec le risque d’une bascule psychotique. Dans ces cas extrêmes, la recherche d’une nouvelle enveloppe, remodelage de la peau, permet de contenir l’éclosion du courant psychotique grâce à la disponibilité permanente de l’incorporation du différent, identification certes coûteuse en ressources mais peut-être, à même d’éviter l’effondrement narcissique complet.

Insults, gossip, and slander are the origin of many conflicts during the Ancien Régime. They are used to hurt someone’s honour or reputation, which are essential values to keeping good relationships in society. People need to defend their honour when they are injured. They can seek reparations by taking legal action or opting for infrajudicial practices, such as contacting a notary. This possibility has attracted too little attention from historians whereas notarial records are a massive source of information related to conflicts affecting people's daily lives. Indeed, during the eighteenth century, inhabitants of Liège contacted a notary in order to find an agreement, clear their name of an insult, or to write their version of an aggression. [less ▲]

In this work we study which are the minimal anomaly-free chiral fermion sets, beyond the standard model, that lead to vector-like particles with respect to SU(3) and U(1)em after symmetry breaking. We focus on fermion multiplets with SU(3) and SU(2) dimensions less than or equal to 10 and 5, respectively. Furthermore, we study whether the addition of such chiral fermions allows for gauge coupling unification, at some high scale compatible with proton decay limits. [less ▲]

Doxycycline (DOXY) is associated with left ventricular (LV) dysfunction in calves in accidental overdose but not in experimental models when evaluated with classical and Doppler echocardiography. Two-dimensional-speckle tracking (2DST) is used to evaluate LV dysfunction in numerous species but not in cattle. The aim of this study was to evaluate the cardiotoxic effects of an experimental overdose of DOXY using 2DST in calves. Ten healthy male Holstein calves. Group 1: 5 calves (mean age 58.0 +/- 16.3 days; mean body weight 72.2 +/- 13.0 kg) received 25 mg/kg of DOXY orally for 5 days. Group 2: 5 calves (mean age 56.4 +/- 15.7 days; mean body weight 73.4 +/- 7.0 kg) received a placebo. Electrocardiography (ECG) and 2DST echocardiography were performed at day 0 and day 8. ECG tracings were analysed for occurrence of arrhythmias. 2DST measurements included global and segmental, peak values for radial and circumferential strains (SR, SC), strain rates (SrR, SrC), rotation (Rot), rotation rates (RotR) and radial displacement (DR). All calves completed the study. ECG recordings were unremarkable in both groups. Heart rate was neither significantly different between groups nor before and after treatment. LV systolic function was affected in calves receiving an overdose of DOXY as shown by a significant decrease of segmental SR (P < 0.05), SC (P < 0.05) and DR (P < 0.05) in treated calves compared to the placebo group in several segments. The SrC in early diastole was also significantly decreased in 1 segment (<0.05). In calves, DOXY overdose induces a LV dysfunction in systole, and to a lesser extent, in diastole. A better comprehension of the pathophysiology involved in the DOXY overdose will help in the treatment of accidental cases. [less ▲]

Localisée entre deux zones bien définies culturellement : l’Europe méditerranéenne et celle du Nord, et dotée d’un réseau hydrographique dense, la situation géostratégique de la Bourgogne favorise les échanges de matériaux, les déplacements humains, la circulation d'idées et de savoir-faire au sein de cette zone de passage et de contacts. Cette dynamique marque inévitablement la construction architecturale à l’époque médiévale. A partir du XIe siècle, des abbayes d'influence situées dans la région telles que Cluny et Cîteaux, essaiment à travers toute l'Europe. Ainsi, la région favorise l'affirmation de conventions architecturales qui sont en vigueur dans la Bourgogne romane, puis gothique. Inscrit dans le cadre d’un mandat de recherche postdoctorale financé par le F.R.S-FNRS (2013-2016), le projet présenté ici vise à établir les réseaux d'influences d'idées et de savoir-faire dans le domaine de la construction dans cette zone emblématique en évaluant les origines de modèles architecturaux et leur diffusion au sein de la région mais également à l’extérieur.

We present preliminary results for an updated extraction of the transversity parton distribution based on the analysis of pion-pair production in deep-inelastic scattering off transversely polarized targets in collinear factorization. Data for proton and deuteron targets by HERMES and COMPASS allow for a flavor separation of the valence components of transversity, while di-hadron fragmentation functions are taken from the semi-inclusive production of two pion pairs in back-to-back jets in e+e- annihilation. The latter data from Belle have been reanalyzed using the replica method and a more realistic estimate of the uncertainties on the chiral-odd interference fragmentation function has been obtained. After encoding this piece of information into the deep-inelastic scattering cross section, the transversity has been re-extracted by using the most recent and more precise COMPASS data for proton target. This picture represents the current most realistic estimate of the uncertainties on our knowledge of transversity. The preliminary results indicate that the valence up component seems smaller and with a narrower error band than in previous extraction. © 2015 Owned by the authors, published by EDP Sciences.

This paper deals with the initial development of a methodology for controlling real-life, multi-body dynamical systems in the presence of uncertainties in our knowledge of their exact physical nature as well as uncertainties in the ‘given’ forces acting on them. We assume that both these uncertainties can be time-varying, yet bounded. The methodology is developed in two steps. In the first step an exact control of the so-called nominal system—our best assessment of the real-life physical system and the forces acting on it—is developed. This control is inspired by results from analytical dynamics and involves no linearizations and/or approximations of the nonlinear, nonautonomous system. It also minimizes a suitable norm of the trajectory errors at each instant of time. In the second step, a continuous controller using a generalized sliding mode approach is developed that guarantees that the real-life system tracks, without any chatter and to within pre-specified error bounds, the control requirements that are imposed on the nominal system. Thus an explicit closed-form control for an uncertain, nonlinear, nonautonomous multi-body system that satisfies trajectory control requirements placed on the nominal system (to within pre-specified error bounds), is obtained. An example of a triple pendulum in which there are uncertainties both in the description of its physical parameters and in the description of the gravity field in which it moves is considered. The example demonstrates the simplicity and efficacy of the approach when there are uncertainties both in the description of a dynamical system and in the given forces to which it is subjected.

Continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) devices can measure blood glucose levels through interstitial measurements almost continuously (1-5min sampling period). However, they are not as accurate as glucose readings from blood measurements. The relation between tissue and blood glucose is dynamic and the sensor signal can degrade over time. In addition, CGM readings contains high frequency noise and can drift between measurements. However, maintaining continuous glucose monitoring has the potential to improve the level of glycemic control achieved and reduce nurse workload. For this purpose, a simple model was designed and tested to see the effect of inherent CGM error on the insulin therapy protocol, STAR (Stochastic TARgeted). An error model was generated from 9 patients that had one Guardian Real-Time CGM device (Medtronic Minimed, Northridge, CA, USA) inserted into their abdomen as part of an observation trial assesing the accuracy of CGM measurements compared to a blood gas analyser and glucometer readings. A resulting error model was then used to simulate the outcomes if the STAR protocol was guided by CGM values on 183 virtual patients. CGM alarms for hyper- and hypo-glycaemic region were included to improve patient safety acting as 'guardrails'. The STAR CGM protocol gave good performance and reduced workload by ∼50%, reducing the number of measurements per day per patient from 13 to 7. The number of hypoglycaemic events increased compared to the current STAR from 0.03% <2.2mmol/L to 0.32%. However, in comparison to other published protocols it is still a very low level of hypoglycaemia and less than clinically acceptable value of 5% <4.0mmol/L. More importantly this study shows great promise for the future of CGM and their use in clinic. With the a newer generation of sensors, specifically designed for the ICU, promising less noise and drift suggesting that a reduced nurse workload without compromising safety or performance is with in reach.? © 2015, IFAC (International Federation of Automatic Control) Hosting by Elsevier Ltd.

Relations entre gain baro-réflexe et autres marqueurs de risque chez le patient diabétique de type 2 Relationships between baroreflex gain and other risk markers in patients with type 2 diabetes Objectifs : Le gain baro-réflexe (GBR) est un marqueur de la neuropathie autonome cardiovasculaire (NAC) qui s’avère plus discriminant que le classique R-R E/I ratio. Le but du travail est d’étudier les relations entre le GBR et d’autres marqueurs de risque comme la pression pulsée (PP) et la diminution du débit de filtration glomérulaire (DFG) chez le patient diabétique de type 2 (DT2). Méthodes : Au total, 64 patients DT2 ont été étudiés par enregistrement continu de la pression artérielle (PA) et de la fréquence cardiaque (FC) lors d’un test postural standardisé (test de «squatting» : 1min debout – 1min accroupi – 1min debout). GBR est calculé par la pente de la relation entre les espaces R-R et PA systolique lors du redressement. PP (PAS-PAD) est analysée pendant tout le test et par son augmentation durant l’accroupissement (delta PP). Le DFG est calculé par la formule MDRD avant et après un suivi moyen de 12±5 années. Résultats : Les patients ont été séparés en deux groupes en fonction de la valeur médiane du GBR : G1 (n=34) : </=1,36 msec/mm Hg (moyenne ± SD : 0,77±0,40) vs G2 (n=30) : >1,36 (3,05±0,35). Les sujets de G1 sont légèrement plus âgés (58±7 vs 54±8 ans; p=0,04), mais ont un sexe ratio, une durée du DT2, un taux d’HbA1c et des valeurs de PA comparables aux valeurs de G2. Les patients de G1 ont une FC de base plus élevée (88±15 vs 82±14 bpm; p=0,0462) et un DFG plus bas (79±19 vs 95±19 ml/min; p=0,0479). Si la PP en position debout est comparable (59±15 vs 54±15 mmHg; p=0,1983), elle devient plus élevée en position accroupie (73±18 vs 65±16 mmHg; p=0,0395) chez G1 que chez G2. Lors du redressement, la chute de PA moyenne est significativement plus importante (-46±12 vs -38±12 mmHg; p=0,0079), avec un retard à la récupération des valeurs de base (29±19 vs 21±19 sec; p=0,0107) et une tachycardisation moindre (17±8 vs 23±9 bpm; p=0,0359) chez G1. Par contre, la diminution du DFG durant le suivi est comparable chez G1 vs G2 (-13±21 vs -13±21 ml/min; p=0,8561). Conclusion : Un GBR abaissé, marqueur de la NAC, est associé à une PP élevée en position accroupie (un marqueur indirect de rigidité artérielle) et une diminution du DFG. Par contre, la seule valeur de GBR ne permet pas de prédire l’ampleur de la dégradation de la fonction rénale lors d’un suivi ultérieur de 12 années [less ▲]

Integrated optimization techniques for mechatronic systems aim at designing simultaneously the trajectory, the control system and the mechanical structure in order to minimize a performance index. The key advantage of such an integrated approach is the capability to search in a wide design space, to account for many dynamic couplings in an early design stage and to avoid simplifying assumptions which would induce a suboptimal design. This work considers that technique for robotic manipulators with flexible links. It is known that a exible multibody system is often non-minimum phase, here, no restriction is imposed to avoid it. This allows a free choice of the optimization process to select a lighter weight controlled system. Furthermore, the amplitudes of the non-actuated degrees-of-freedom should be reduced in order to limit bodies deformation. The mechanical model is derived using a nonlinear finite element method, which is a useful approach to represent systems with elastic bodies. An optimal control problem is considered to perform that integrated analysis and its time dicretization relies the direct transcription method. [less ▲]

Lot of soil survey focused on agricultural soils. For practical reasons, those soils have a low stone content. So, most of the soil water content sensors are placed on low stone content soils and the calibration equations are developed for them. Yet some researches take an interest in forest soils that are often much different from the previous ones. The differences lie in their stone content and their slope. Lots of studies have proved the importance of making soil specific calibration of the soil water content sensor. As our lab use regularly the 10HS sensors (Decagon Devices, United States) in forested soil, we decided to evaluate the importance of the stone content in the soil moisture measurement. The soil used for this experimentation comes from Gembloux (50◦33’54.9”N, 4◦42’11.3”E). It is silt that has been sieved at 2 mm to remove the gravel. The stones used to form the samples come from an experimental site located in the Belgian Ardennes (50◦1’52.6”N, 4◦53’22.5”E). They are mainly composed of schist with some quartz and sandstone elements. Initially, only five samples were constructed with three replications each. The size and the proportion of stones were the variables. Stones were classified in two groups, the first contains gravels whose size is less than 1,5 cm and a the second contains gravels whose size is comprised between 2 and 3 cm. The proportions of stone selected for the experiment are 0, 20 and 40%. In order to generate validation data, two more samples were constructed with intermediate proportion of stone content (30%). The samples were built in PVC container which dimensions are slightly bigger than the sensor volume of influence (1.1-1.3l). The soil samples were saturated and then dried on a thermal chamber set at about 32◦C. During at least 14 days, the samples soil water content was determined by the sensor measurement with the Procheck read-out system (Decagon Devices, United State) and by weighting the samples thrice a day. The evolution of the soil sample height was monitored as well. As first result, the stone content is a parameter that seems to influence soil water content. The stone size is no important. Because soil moisture deserves to be measured accurately in every soil and to confirm the first results the experiment is going on with more samples, different stone proportions, other sensor positioning and a natural air drying.

This paper presents recent improvements of our new solar concentrator design for space application. The concentrator is based on a combination of a diffraction grating (blazed or lamellar) coupled with a Fresnel lens. Thanks to this diffractive/refractive combination, this optical element splits spatially and spectrally the light and focus approximately respectively visible light and IR light onto electrically independent specific cells. It avoid the use of MJs cells and then also their limitations like current matching and lattice matching conditions, leading theoretically to a more tolerant system. The concept is reminded, with recent optimizations, ideal and more realistic results, and the description of an experimental realization highlighting the feasibility of the concept and the closeness of theoretical and experimental results.

Relations entre marqueurs de neuropathie autonome, pression pulsée et insuffisance rénale chronique chez le patient diabétique de type 2 Relationships between markers of autonomic neuropathy, pulse pressure and chronic kidney disease in patients with type 2 diabetes Objectifs : Le patient diabétique de type 2 (DT2) est exposé à un risque accru de neuropathie autonome cardiovasculaire (NAC), de rigidité artérielle et d’insuffisance rénale chronique (IRC). Le but du travail est d’étudier les relations entre la NAC, PP et le débit de filtration glomérulaire (DFG) chez le patient DT2. Méthodes : L’étude comprend 79 patients DT2 (53H, 26F; âge initial : 56±8 années; durée connue du DT2 : 11±8 années; IMC : 28,4±4,6 kg/m²) analysés par enregistrement continu de la pression artérielle (PA) et de la fréquence cardiaque lors d’un test postural standardisé (test de «squatting» : 1min debout – 1min accroupi – 1min debout). Le gain baro-réflexe (GBR) est calculé par la pente de la relation entre les espaces R-R et PA systolique lors du redressement. La pression pulsée (PP = PAS-PAD) est analysée pendant tout le test et par son augmentation durant l’accroupissement (delta PP). DFG est estimé par la formule MDRD au début et après un suivi moyen de 12±5 ans. Résultats : Les valeurs initiales sont : HbA1c : 8,8± 1,7%; DFG : 86±25 ml/min ; PP : 62±10 mmHg; BRG : 1,8±1,4 msec/mmHg. DFG est inversement corrélé à l’âge (r=-0,317; p=0,020), sans relation avec HbA1c (r=-0,023; p=0,935). DFG est fortement corrélé avec GBR (r=0,453; p=0,008) et, moins, avec SqTs (un autre indice d’atteinte sympathique) (r=0,213; p=0,020), mais pas avec le classique indice de NAC R-R E/I ratio (r=0,092 ; p=0,262). Il n’y a pas de corrélation significative entre DFG et PA moyenne, PAS, PP ou encore delta PP. La diminution de DFG (-12±23 ml/min) lors du suivi de 12 ans n’a pu être corrélée de façon significative aux valeurs initiales et finales d’HbA1c, aux trois marqueurs initiaux de NAC (GBR, RR E/I ratio et SqTs) ou aux divers paramètres initiaux évaluant la PA, même si la relation est proche de la signification pour delta PP, un marqueur de la rigidité artérielle (r= 0,20 p= 0,060). Conclusion : La forte relation inverse initiale entre DFG et GBR suggère que IRC et NAC sont aggravées de façon conjointe et, possiblement, qu’une des deux complications influence l’autre. L’absence de corrélations avec HbA1c et les paramètres PA ou PP pourraient s’expliquer par les interférences liées au traitement en cours. L’absence de toute corrélation entre la chute ultérieure de DFG et les autres paramètres initiaux peut s’expliquer par l’origine multifactorielle de la progression de l’IRC chez le patient DT2.

The common hippopotamus (Hippopotamus amphibius L.) is part of the animal species endangered because of multiple human pressures. Monitoring of species for conservation is then essential, and the development of census protocols has to be chased. UAV technology is considering as one of the new perspectives for wildlife survey. Indeed, this technique has many advantages but its main drawback is the generation of a huge amount of data to handle. This study aims at developing an algorithm for automatic count of hippos, by exploiting thermal infrared aerial images acquired from UAV. This attempt is the first known for automatic detection of this species. Images taken at several flight heights can be used as inputs of the algorithm, ranging from 38 to 155 meters above ground level. A Graphical User Interface has been created in order to facilitate the use of the application. Three categories of animals have been defined following their position in water. The mean error of automatic counts compared with manual delineations is +2.3% and shows that the estimation is unbiased. Those results show great perspectives for the use of the algorithm in populations monitoring after some technical improvements and the elaboration of statistically robust inventories protocols.

To get around UAS limitations and propose a viable solution for wildlife monitoring, the development of new inventory methods is needed. However, most authors use the classic systematic transect method as data processing and statistics are easier. We thus created an application to process data from every type of flight plan and to help detect and compare observations on large datasets. WiMUAS is a small software compatible with the open-source QGIS© that allows the creation of visual maps compatible with geographical information systems based on telemetry data and payload parameters to estimate the covered area. The application also has a slider for animal detection that allows multiple observers to record and compare their results for accurate counts. We then tested it on data from a trial realized on savannah animal populations in Democratic Republic of Congo using the Falcon UAS. We created a new type of flight plan, a rosette-shaped design that can be covered in three flights,.and repeated it twice. More than 5000 images were collected during the six flights. Image projection gives an area of 12,4 km2 for the first trial and of 12,1 km2 for the second. The mean sampling rate for both test is 6,1 %. Observers spotted buffaloes, hippos, warthogs and various antelopes with different success over an average rate of 8 images reviewed per minute. Resulting densities observed by the three observers are similar for each test (coefficient of variation 6,9 and 8,6 % respectively) but mean densities vary a lot between the two trials (23,8 and 6,5 animals/km2 respectively).
