Writing a document is a difficult task because the writer needs to think about two different concepts: the appearence of the document, and its content. Both constitute the message the writer wants to transmit. We will here treat about the aesthetics of publications, from the perspective of effectiveness (which implies clarity). We begin by discussing some (but not all!) basic principles on how to write a good article, then treat about what LaTeX can help you to do to improve your document's content. We end with what you might do and do not about graphical \ae sthetism, and then end with some tips on how to ensure aesthetism, together with effectiveness, when writing an article. [less ▲]

is wasted through the cooling liquid and the exhaust gases. Thus, it would be possible to convert this wasted heat in order to improve the engine overall efficiency and reduce the fuel consumption of the vehicle. This shows the big interest in energy recovery systems. This paper presents the various systems enabling the recovery of this energy. A Rankine cycle, widely used in the industry, is of particular interest. The efficiency of energy conversion varies from 5 to 20 % depending of its conception (working fluid, architecture, coupling…). Moreover, the layout of the Rankine cycle integrated within a vehicle depends on the choice of the working fluid as well as the technologies of the components i.e. the expander, the evaporator, the condenser and the pump. Within this context, the issue regarding the mass and the size of the system has to be considered. Finally, we present several solutions of Rankine systems for passenger car application and show each advantage and limits. [less ▲]

We have taken advantage of a stellar occultation by the dwarf planet Makemake on 2011 April 23, to determine several of its main physical properties. We present results from a multisite campaign with 8 positive occultation detections from 5 different sites, including data from the 8-m VLT and 3.5-m NTT telescopes in Chile, which have very high temporal resolution. Because the star was significantly fainter than Makemake (setting a record in the magnitude of a star whose occultation has been detected), the occultation resulted in a drop of just ~0.3 mag in the lightcurves. From the lightcurves we have been able to determine the size and shape of the body, its geometric albedo and constraints on its atmosphere. [less ▲]

We report the observation of a multi-chord stellar occultation by the dwarf planet (136199) Eris. The event was observed on November 6, 2010 UT, from two sites in Chile. Our observation is consistent with a spherical Eris with radius RE=1163±6 km, density =2.52±0.05 g cm-3, and visible geometric albedo pV=0.96+0.09 -0.04. Besides being remarkably similar in size to Pluto, Eris appears as one of the intrinsically brightest objects of the solar system, with a density suggesting a mainly rocky interior. Upper limits of about 1 nbar are derived for the surface pressure of possible nitrogen, argon or methane atmospheres of the dwarf planet. [less ▲]

Between February 2010 and May 2011, our group has observed five stellar occultations by Trans-Neptunian Objects (TNOs), giving the size and shape for some of the biggest TNO's: Varuna, Eris, 2003 AZ84, Makemake and Quaoar. Here we present two of them: the January 08 stellar occultation by 2003 AZ84, and the May 04 by Quaoar. For the event of 2003 AZ84 we obtained one positive and another negative occultation chords in Chile. We give a lower limit to the diameter of the TNO. The event of Quaoar was observed from 16 sites distributed in Uruguay, Argentina, Chile and Brazil. Five of them yielded positive detection of the occultation. A preliminary analysis shows that the body is probably elongated and significantly bigger than the size determined by Fraser & Brown 2010, with a diameter of 890km. Using the size determined by the occultation, we will discuss the implications for the body density and albedo determination. The upper limit of the atmosphere is also studied. [less ▲]

Nous nous focalisons sur les organisations du secteur non marchand présentes dans cette région marquée par d’interminables conflits et guerres fratricides à caractère ethnique, une instabilité politique, une fragile démocratie ou une faillite quasi totale de l’Etat. Notre problématique consiste à comprendre l’influence du contexte culturel et institutionnel dans le choix ou l’adoption de telle ou telle autre approche de Management des ressources humaines par les ONG internationales au Burundi. Dans ce pays, les grandes valeurs qui marquent la culture nationale sont notamment l’attachement à la famille, la confiance discrète et le dialogue comme mode de résolution de conflits entre des personnes ou groupes de personnes. Ainsi, tenterons-nous de répondre à la question centrale suivante: Des contextes culturels et institutionnels différents peuvent-ils affecter la cohérence des pratiques de GRH et l’intégration de celles-ci dans la stratégie globale de l’organisation? Pour y répondre, nous adoptons une méthodologie qualitative à travers une étude de cas et une analyse exploratoire des données issues d’interviews semi-directives et d’observations directes réalisées sur terrain au Burundi. Les résultats de cette étude penchent davantage vers un style managérial négocié qui se situe entre l’imposition du style managérial du pays d’origine et la soumission au style de management local. Notre étude se termine par la formulation d’un certain nombre d’hypothèses qui seront, par la suite, validées ou infirmées dans nos études ultérieures à la suite d’une analyse plus approfondies de données empiriques portant sur plusieurs ONG internationales.

Introduction: Le but de notre étude était de déterminer si une injection de plasma enrichi en plaquettes (PRP) pouvait améliorer et accélérer le processus de cicatrisation de tendons d'Achille de rats rompus. Matériel et méthode : Un défect de 5mm a été réalisé chirurgicalement au niveau de tendons d'Achille de 120 rats. Soixante rats ont reçu respectivement une infiltration de PRP ou PBS in situ après chirurgie. Vingt rats de chaque groupe ont été euthanasiés après 5, 15 et 30 jours. Quinze tendons de chaque groupe ont été directement soumis à un test de traction biomécanique jusqu'à rupture à l'aide de clamps de type "cryo-jaw" et ensuite collectés pour réaliser des analyses transcriptomiques. Des études histologique et biochimique ont également été réalisées sur les 5 tendons restant de chaque groupe. Résultats: Les tendons du groupe PRP étaient plus résistants à la rupture à 15 et 30 jours que ceux du groupe contrôle. La section transverse des tendons était significativement plus grande au sein du groupe PRP à J5 et J15. Les contraintes étaient significativement plus grandes au sein des tendons dans les phases tardives de cicatrisation. L'étude histologique montrait une augmentation de coloration pour les fibres de collagène à J5 au sein du groupe PRP, résultats confirmés par l'analyse biochimique montrant une augmentation de la concentration de collagène au sein du "cal" tendineux. L'expression de la ténomoduline, un marqueur de la différentiation des ténocytes, était significativement plus important au sein du groupe PRP à J5. Aucune différence significative en terme d'ARNm n'a été observée pou r le collagène de type III ni pour la MMP-9, à aucun temps, entre les 2 groupes. Conclusion : Une injection de PRP au sein de tendons d'Achille de rats rompus influence les phases précoces du la cicatrisation tendineuse, entrainant une meilleure résistance mécanique à la rupture.

Medicago sativa or Alfalfa is a flowering plant that belongs to Pea Family that is widely grown throughout the world as forage for cattle, and is most often harvested as hay. Medicago Sativa usually has the highest nutritive value of all common hay crops. This work aims to highlight a way for direct, non-destructive analysis of crude protein content in Medicago sativa hays. The primary objective was to build a model for crude protein calibration for Medicago sativa based on FT-NIR spectroscopy. The samples for analysis were collected over two experimental years (2008-2009) from field trials from the research station– Agricultural Development, Jucu. In order to construct the model, references values are needed; for this reason, crude protein content was determined using the classical Kjeldahl method (Kjeltec Auto Analyser, Tecator). The values for crude protein ranged from 12.63% to 19.12% on the dry matter basis. The regression models build was based on Partial Least Squares (PLS) calculated with the SIMPLS algorithm, using different pre-processing techniques and leave-one-out cross validation. Calibration of the two years together drove to a coefficient of determination for cross validation,R2, of 0.965. The robustness of the model was confirmed by applying it to independent samples (external validation) where the coefficient of determination was R2 = 0.977, RMSEP = 0.8. The results obtained indicated that NIRS can be used to determine crude protein, which could be used as a criteria for quality control of Medicago sativa hays. [less ▲]

The present study aims to identify clinical predictors of paediatric cancer patients’ quality of life (QOL). Children with cancer, aged from 8 to 12 years old (n=40), completed the Quality of Life Systemic Inventory – Module for Cancer - QLSI-C© (Etienne, Dupuis, Spitz, Lemétayer, & Missotten 2011; Fonseca, & Spitz, 2011; Missotten, Fonseca, Dupuis, Lemétayer, Spitz, & Etienne) and a socio-demographic questionnaire. Results show that diagnosis’ type, time after diagnosis and the fact of relapse or not accounts for 21,7% of generic QOL variance and 30,9% of specific QOL variance. Findings support that paediatric cancer patients with a diagnosis of solid tumour, a more recent diagnosis, and those who relapse are in a more vulnerable situation regarding their QOL and therefore need more attention by doctors and caregivers.

Purpose: The aim of this study is to find the suitable cutoff point of endometrial thickness (ET) for predicting abnormal endometrium in Vietnamese women with postmenopausal bleeding (PMB). Material & Methods: A prospective study was carried out during 2 years. 308 women, who did not use any hormone therapy, were suffered from PMB. All of them were measured ET by transvaginal sonography before an endometrial biopsy. Dilation and curettage (D&C) was indicated in women with ET ≥ 3 mm to diagnose an abnormal endometrium (hyperplasia atypia or cancer). We compared the sensitivity and false-negative rate at each 1-mm interval cutoff point of ET for detecting these histopathologies. Results: 292 women gave their consent to perform an endometrial biopsy (D&C). Their mean age was 59.4 ± 9.3 years. The median time of amenorrhea was 5 years (range 2-13 years); 12.67% (95%CI 9.10-17.04) of cases were diagnosed an abnormal ET in which the mean of endometrial thickness found was 4.0±1.7 mm (95% CI 3.8-11.8). In comparison to seven cutoff points, the ET at 4 mm showed the highest detection rate of abnormal endometrium in women with PMB (95% of sensitivity for 4% false-negative rate) Conclusion: The ET at 4 mm is the most suitable cutoff point for predicting an abnormal endometrium in Vietnamese women with PMB.

We establish the equation of motion of pseudoscalar particles coupled to an electro- magnetic field in a classical gravitational background through the use of conformal time and flat geometry. We show that the expansion of the universe can lead to larger mixing than in a station- ary universe. We also show that for a broad range of parameters, one can obtain resonant mixing, i.e. a region in which the mixing becomes maximum. [less ▲]

Models for Majorana neutrino masses can be classified according to the level in perturbation theory at which the effective dimension five operator LLHH is realized. The possibilities range from the tree-level up to the three-loop level realizations. We discuss some general aspects of this approach and speculate about a model independent classification of the possible cases. Among all the realizations, those in which the effective operator is induced by radiative corrections open the possibility for lepton number violation near -or at- the electroweak scale. We discuss some phenomenological aspects of two generic radiative realizations: the Babu-Zee model and supersymmetric models with bilinear R-parity violation. [less ▲]

This paper addresses the problem of verifying and correcting programs when they are moved from a sequential consistency execution environment to a relaxed memory context. Specifically, it considers the TSO (Total Store Order) relaxation, which corresponds to the use of store buffers, and its extension x86-TSO, which in addition allows synchronization and lock operations. The proposed approach uses a previously developed verification tool that uses finite automata to symbolically represent the possible contents of the store buffers. Its starting point is a program that is correct for the usual sequential consistency memory model, but that might be incorrect under x86-TSO. This program is then analyzed for this relaxed memory model and when errors are found (with respect to safety properties), memory fences are inserted in order to avoid these errors. The approach proceeds iteratively and heuristically, inserting memory fences until correctness is obtained, which is guaranteed to happen. An advantage of our technique is that the underlying symbolic verification tool makes a full exploration possible even for cyclic programs, which makes our approach broadly applicable. The method has been tested with an experimental implementation and can effectively handle a series of classical examples. [less ▲]

Reducing the frequency of milk recording and the number of recorded samples per test-day could be a solution in order to reduce costs of milk recording. However, this solution leads to decrease also the accuracy of predicting daily yield. According to the literature, several authors have already worked on this problematic. Unfortunately, some effects used in previous studies are not often available or reliable in used databases. This study was aimed to enlarge these investigations to milk fatty acids (FA) production: saturated FA, mono-unsaturated FA, unsaturated FA, medium-chain FA, and long chain FA and to propose a simple, robust and practical method for estimating accurate daily major FA yield from single milking. To do this, five dairy cows were followed between January 2007 and December 2010. FA contents were predicted by mid-infrared spectrometry. The final database contained 1,440 records. The first step was to ensure that used effects were available in most used databases. According to the availability of data, height models were tested to estimate daily yields from both morning and evening milking. These models were compared on the basis of the coefficient of determination values between estimated and observed daily yields and the mean square error. The proposed models included progressively several effects such as the milk yield, the fat and protein content, some classes of stage in lactation, of month of test or of month of calving. As expected, R² values were higher when these effects are introduced in the model and were comprised between 0.87 and 0.88 when daily yield were estimated from morning milking, and from 0.75 and 0.86 when daily yield were estimated from evening milking. It was concluded that the introduction of these effects did highly improve the daily predictability of all trait yield and can partially replace the milking interval effect. It was also observed that daily yields estimated from evening milkings are less accurate than those estimated from morning milkings. Finally, the applied model will depend on the availability of the data and to the convenience of the applied model to the studied population.

Various authors like Patterson and Chan (1995) suggest that the psychological evolution of a child who grew up in a homoparental family is not different from that of a child pertaining to other types of family structures. Literature on family dynamics in homoparental contexts (Vecho & Schneider, 2005; Gross, 2005) shows that only few studies focus on a systematic analysis of interactions. They rather deal with representational and symbolic aspects within the parents-children dyad and use various methodological modalities, the analysis unit being the single person. For this reason it is actually essential to try to understand the child’s development from a triadic point of view that takes into consideration the parental couple and the child (Fivaz-Depeursinge, 2003). The aim of our study is to observe the postnatal family interactions of homoparental families using the Lausanne Trilogue Play paradigm (LTP Fivaz-Depeursinge, 1999). We assume that there are no significant differences regarding the quality of the family triadic interactions. Family alliance appears to be comparable in homoparental and other non-referred family samples. The first results with 15 homoparental families seem to confirm our research hypothesis. These pilot results may turn out to be significant in our ongoing research. [less ▲]

HTLV-1 persists by driving clonal proliferation of infected T-lymphocytes. A high proviral load predisposes to the inflammatory and malignant diseases associated with HTLV-1. Yet the reasons for the remarkable variation within and between individuals in the abundance of HTLV-1-infected clones remain unknown. We demonstrate that negative selection dominates during chronic infection, favouring establishment of proviruses integrated in transcriptionally silenced DNA: this selection is significantly stronger in asymptomatic carriers. We postulated that this selection occurred mainly during the primary infection. We are testing this hypothesis in an animal model by studying the BLV clonality during the primary infection in cows. By measuring the proviral load, the anti-BLV immune response and the BLV clonality we aim to quantify the impact of the immune response on the rate of infectious spread and on the selection of proviruses inserted in a particular genomic environment. Co-infection with Strongyloides stercoralis or Staphylococcus appears to be another risk factor for the development of HTLV-1 associated diseases. We observed that HTLV-1 clonality is altered by co-infection with these pathogens with an increase of both the number and the abundance of the infected T-cell clones. The genomic characteristics of the proviral integration sites in the most abundant clones differ significantly between co-infected individuals and those with HTLV-1 alone, implying the existence of different selection forces in co-infected patients. The rate of appearance of new clones in patients co-infected with Strongyloides stercoralis is higher than in patients with HTLV-1 alone. By comparing skin lesions and blood samples from patients with Infective Dermatitis associated with HTLV-1 (IDH), we observed a significant proportion of distinct infected clones between the two compartments. The skin lesions seem to be a site for HTLV-1 infectious spread. [less ▲]

Eradication by culling of infected animals is not economically sustainable in highly infected regions such as Argentina, US or Japan. Partition and confinement on BLV-infected cows is expensive due to duplication of facilities. Finally, several candidate vaccines based on recombinant viral proteins were unsuccessful to protect from challenge. Facing these failures, we propose a novel strategy based on the use of a live-attenuated BLV provirus. The rationale behind this strategy relies on the deletion of genes required to induce pathogenesis leaving those involved in infectivity, resulting in an attenuated mutant with impaired transmissibility. In a first set of experiments, we show that the mutant is infectious and elicits an efficient immune response in sheep (n=3) and in cows (n=9). Lack of spread to uninfected sentinels further supports the safety of the vaccine. Based on these promising results, a validation program in herd (n=105) is ongoing to evaluate the capacity of the candidate vaccine to protect from wild-type BLV infection. The following experiments are carried out: quantification of the proviral loads, assessment of immune response efficiency (antibody titers, CTL response and cytokine profiling), measure of viral expression in vivo (qRT-PCR) and ex vivo (expression of Tax and p24gag) and determination of provirus clonality during infection. This data will be instrumental for understanding the basic mechanisms undergoing during BLV infection and for elaborating of a novel vaccine. [less ▲]

The multicoloured Asian ladybird Harmonia axyridis Pallas (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae), previously introduced as a biological control agent against aphids, is now frequently considered as an intraguild predator, consuming other aphid natural enemies. Interactions between this exotic ladybird and other aphidophagous species present in Belgian agro-ecosystems such as Coccinella septempunctata, Episyrphus balteatus and Chrysoperla carnea are asymmetric to the benefit of H. axyridis. This study focuses on the survival rate of three aphidophagous species Harmonia axyridis (Ha), Coccinella septempunctata (C7) and Episyrphus balteatus (Eb) placed in cages in biological fields of potato and sugar beet. During June and July, hermetic cages were disposed on the crops with 10 larvae (second stage) of each aphidophagous. Four types of cages were observed (1) Ha+Eb+C7+ aphids, (2) Ha+Eb+C7, (3) Eb+C7+ aphids and (4) Eb+C7. Each combination was repeated three times. In sugar beet fields, E. balteatus was the species with the highest mortality rate. The two coccinellid species had a better survival rate than E. balteatus. All aphidophagous species had higher mortality rates in absence of aphids. In potato, when aphids were present in excess, the survival rates of all aphidophagous insects were lower than in sugar beet probably because A. fabae is less adapted to the potato morphology. Nevertheless, we have observed in potato no mortality of C. 7-punctata during all its development cycle. This suggests that (1) C. 7-punctata may use aphids as food sources more efficiently than H. axyridis and (2) that interactions between aphidophagous could be less frequent (difficulty of mobility). In potato and sugar beet, H. axyridis had the longest development cycle, being still at the larval stage when C. 7-punctata and E. balteatus reached the pupae stage. We can suppose that pupae of E. balteatus and C. 7-punctata were an alternative food (intraguild prey) to H. axyridis when aphids were lacking. Pupae are immobile and therefore more sensitive to the attack of predators. [less ▲]

Currently, economic, agronomic and environmental concerns, lead to reduce use of herbicides. This reduction can be help by cultural measures like delay of the sowing date. Four sowing dates of winter wheat from 15th of October to 26th of November were tested. Dynamic of black-grass populations and their reproduction rate were assessed as well as dynamic of winter wheat for each date. Delay of sowing could significantly reduce reproduction rate of blac-grass. It was shwn that the emergence rate (pl/m²), but also number of ears per plant and number of seeds per ear of black-grass decreased significantly with the sowing date. This reproduction of seeds productioin already is from sixty per cent of a delay of two weeks sowing. [less ▲]

The color-sided (Cs) phenotype is a dominant coat color pattern segregating in several breeds including Belgian Blue Cattle (BBC) and Brown Swiss (BS). A genome-wide association study performed in BBC unambiguously positioned the Cs locus on chromo- some 29 (BTA29); however, SNP arrays and CGH detected an equally perfectly associated <480 kb duplication encompassing the KIT gene on chromo- some 6 (BTA6). FISH analysis reconciled these results by revealing an intrachromosomal duplication, which transposed a fragment of BTA6 to BTA29. The organization of the duplicated segment, including breakpoint definition, was determined by high-throughput resequencing and revealed that the transpo- sition occurred via a circular intermediate. The trans- posed KIT copy was shown to be transcriptionally competent, suggesting that dominant color-sidedness results from dysregulated expression of KIT. Similar analyses of the color-sided phenotype conducted in BS revealed linkage on BTA6, a <120- kb-BTA6 duplication (which overlaps with the BBC duplication), and a <414-kb-BTA29 duplication adja- cent to the BTA29 breakpoint defined in BBC. FISH analysis showed the duplicated portion of BTA29 was located on BTA6 and adjacent to the KIT gene. SNP genotyping indicated that the BTA6 and BTA29 haplotypes associated with color-sidedness in BS and BBC were near identical, demonstrating the non-independence of the two chromosomal events. High-throughput resequencing of a color-sided BS animal defined the corresponding breakpoints and suggests that the BS Cs allele is derived from the BBC duplication [less ▲]

During its intensive testing campaign, SWAP (Sun Watcher using Active Pixel System detector and image Processing), an optical instrument developed by Centre Spatiale de Liege (CSL) and mounted onto the Belgian satellite PROBA2, was subjected to a multitude of load cases to verify the integrity of the instrument during and after the launch and during the operational phase. The front and rear filters of SWAP, 200 nm thin films, survived intensive vibration tests on the qualification model and acceptance tests on the flight model, both at an instrument level. During the acoustic test on the spacecraft, the front filter exploded while the rear one was undamaged. A new, strengthened filter, coated with a very fine metal mesh was mounted in the instrument. However, this new filter has less good optical properties due to optical diffraction. Therefore a profound analysis of the filter failure is necessary to provide the best possible optical accuracy for future missions with similar equipment. Three load cases are further studied in this paper: the acceleration of the rocket, the instrument depressurisation and the vibro-acoustic behaviour under the large sound and vibration levels. The acceleration and depressurisation are studied together in a two-level computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis to assess the effect of the venting of the instrument on the differential pressure over the filter. The main focus of this paper is on a numerical vibro-acoustic analysis, following the procedures used by CSL and ESTEC (European Space Research and Technology Centre). This analysis needs special attention because of the presence of a stochastic excitation (diffuse field) and the very nonlinear behaviour of the filter itself due to its small thickness. Also, an additional postprocessing step based on filter displacements, rather than differential pressure, as done in the ESTEC procedure, is discussed. [less ▲]

Given a finite but large set of objects de- scribed by a vector of features, only a small subset of which have been labeled as ‘positive’ with respect to a class of interest, we consider the problem of characterizing the positive class. We formalize this as the problem of learning a feature based score function that minimizes the p-value of a non parametric statistical hypothesis test. For lin- ear score functions over the original feature space or over one of its kernelized versions, we provide a solution of this problem computed by a one-class SVM applied on a surrogate dataset obtained by sampling subsets of the overall set of objects and representing them by their average feature-vector shifted by the average feature-vector of the original sample of positive examples. We carry out experiments with this method on the prediction of targets of transcription factors in two different organisms, E. Coli and S. Cererevisiae. Our method extends enrichment analysis commonly carried out in Bioinformatics and its results outperform common solutions to this problem. [less ▲]
