After four years during which only the spectacular light echo was showing continuous and rapid evolution while the central star was nearly constant, in autumn 2006 V838 Mon began a sequence of events which profoundly altered its spectroscopic and photometric behavior: (a) an eclipse of the B3V companion, characterized by the disappearance and reappearance of the B3V companion from optical spectra, and an eclipse-like lightcurve of ~70 day duration and Δ B ˜ 1.15 mag, Δ V ˜ 0.55 mag, Δ R[SUB]C[/SUB] ˜ 0.10 mag maximum depth; (b) a large increase in intensity of the [FeII] and FeII emission lines, and the appearance in emission for the first time since the 2002 outburst of Hα and higher Balmer series lines. While the [FeII] and FeII lines maintained a very sharp and unresolved profile, the Hα developed into a wide and structured profile, characterized by a sharp central reversal at the same velocity as one of the CO radio emission components. The disappearance of the B3V companion is equally well explained by a grazing eclipse from the outbursting L-type supergiant or by an eclipse from a dust cloud characterized by E[SUB]B-V[/SUB]=0.55 and R[SUB]V[/SUB]=3.1. We believe the flaring of the emission lines occurred at a similar time as the B3V eclipse just by chance. Tables 2-4 are only available in electronic form at http://www.aanda.org Based on observations made with the Asiago 1.82 m of the INAF Astronomical Observatory of Padova, and with 4.2 m WHT and 2.5 m INT operated by the Isaac Newton Group of Telescopes, and with the 2.6 m NOT operated jointly by Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden, in the Spanish Observatorio del Roque de Los Muchachos of the Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias.

Prolonged utilization of some antiretroviral drugs in patients infected by HIV can lead to the outbreak of a lipodystrophy syndrome. This syndrome is characterized by modification of fats corporal repartition, sometimes associated with metabolic disturbancies (dyslipemia and insulin resistance). Two antiretroviral classes are implicated in the pathophysiology of this syndrome, namely protease inhibitors (PIs) and nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTIs). The PIs rather influence the differentiation of adipose tissue with its secretion. They are more often associated with visceral adiposity, insulin resistance and dyslipemia. The mitochondrial toxicity of the NRTIs is more frequently responsible for adipose tissue loss at the periphery. Other factors in relation to the patient influence the severity of this syndrome. Several therapeutic options are to be considered both when taking care of the patients suffering from this syndrome and when new patients are to be treated. [less ▲]

We analyse the possible consequences of activating iBGP multipath load sharing in a given domain (or AS), which allows for load balancing over multiple exit routers. It has been stated that interdomain routing loops may appear in this case. We show that under reasonable assumptions (which reflect commercial relationships between ASes) such routing loops cannot appear. Furthermore we show that even if theses assumptions are not met, routing loops can only be transient. [less ▲]

L’utilisation de l'interférométrie de speckle (ESPI) sur des objets opaques diffusants à une longueur d’onde de 10 µm en utilisant une caméra thermographique commerciale est présentée pour la première fois à notre connaissance. L’idée d’utiliser une longueur d’onde plus grande que les longueurs d’onde visibles habituelles est de rendre les mesures de déplacements par des techniques holographiques moins sensibles aux perturbations extérieures. Dans cet article, nous discutons certains aspect particuliers dûs à l’accroissement de la longueur d’onde dans le domaine thermique de 10 µm. Nous montrons ensuite les résultats de mesures de rotations dans le plan d’une plaque métallique. Nous avons utilisé la technique du décalage de phase pour obtenir des mesures quantitatives qui sont corrélées par des mesures menées en parallèle avec un théodolite. [less ▲]

The aim of the workshop on rotifers in ecotoxicology was to stimulate discussions on new developments in the field. Discussions about the use of biomolecular tools indicate that gene expression analysis with rotifers should be available in the next few years. Such analyses will be a great asset as they enable ecotoxicologists to study molecular mechanisms of toxicity. Rotifers also appear as useful tools in the risk assessment of pharmaceuticals and their metabolites that find their way into aquatic ecosystems because their sensitivity to some of these substances is higher than that of cladocerans and algae. The nature and extent of the impact of potential endocrine disruptors on aquatic invertebrates is another poorly resolved issue for which rotifers are a promising tool. Indeed, rotifers seem to be particularly sensitive to androgenic and anti-antiandrogenic substances, whereas copepods and cladocerans are typically more affected by estrogens and juvenile hormone-like compounds. Besides their usefulness in these emerging fields of aquatic ecotoxicology, it was emphasized that research with rotifers on basic issues like, e.g., toxicant interference with predation, competition, or interspecific and interclonal variation in ecotoxicological tests is still needed.

Context: The quest for hot dust in the central region of debris disks requires high resolution and high dynamic range imaging. Near-infrared interferometry is a powerful means to directly detect faint emission from hot grains. Aims: We probed the first 3 AU around tau Ceti and eps Eridani with the CHARA array (Mt Wilson, USA) in order to gauge the 2 mum excess flux emanating from possible hot dust grains in the debris disks and to also resolve the stellar photospheres. Methods: High precision visibility amplitude measurements were performed with the FLUOR single mode fiber instrument and telescope pairs on baselines ranging from 22 to 241 m of projected length. The short baseline observations allow us to disentangle the contribution of an extended structure from the photospheric emission, while the long baselines constrain the stellar diameter. Results: We have detected a resolved emission around tau Cet, corresponding to a spatially integrated, fractional excess flux of 0.98±0.21 × 10[SUP]-2[/SUP] with respect to the photospheric flux in the K'-band. Around eps Eri, our measurements can exclude a fractional excess of greater than 0.6× 10[SUP]-2[/SUP] (3sigma). We interpret the photometric excess around tau Cet as a possible signature of hot grains in the inner debris disk and demonstrate that a faint, physical or background, companion can be safely excluded. In addition, we measured both stellar angular diameters with an unprecedented accuracy: Theta_LD(tau Cet)= 2.015 ± 0.011 mas and Theta_LD(eps Eri)=2.126 ± 0.014 mas. [less ▲]

Four experiments found benevolent sexism to be worse than hostile sexism for women's cognitive performance. Experiments 1-2 showed effects of paternalist benevolent sexism and ruled out explanations of perceived sexism, context pleasantness, and performance motivation. Experiment 3 showed effects of both paternalist and complementary gender differentiation components of benevolent sexism. Benevolent sexism per se (rather than the provision of unsolicited help involved in paternalism) worsened performance. Experiment 4 showed that impaired performance due to benevolent sexism was fully mediated by the mental intrusions women experienced about their sense of competence. Additionally, Experiment 4 showed that gender identification protected against hostile but not benevolent sexism. Despite the apparently positive and inoffensive tone of benevolent sexism, our research emphasizes its insidious dangers. [less ▲]

Over the last fifteen years, child's pain has become one of our major concerns. In spite of this evolution, it remains one of the most frequent complications after ambulatory surgery. It is thus essential to implement all the resources we have at our disposal in order to optimize pain management. This can be obtained by basing our strategy on the concept of multimode analgesia. It is consequently essential that each team can achieve its own quality program; the corollary will be the development of clear recommendations for the parents with a systematic analgesics regulation at home and the possibility to resort to the family doctor or to the ambulatory centre in the event of persistence of pain.

The new set of RILEM recommendations specifies test methodologies for determining the different mechanical properties of concrete at high temperatures. The new set of recommendations applies to all types of concrete used in construction, including high strength concrete. The recommendations specify that the environmental and testing conditions associated with service or accident conditions of structural concrete at high temperature need to be considered, while using these building materials for construction activities. The recommendations are also applicable to concrete in the temperature range of 20°C-750°C. The recommendations also contain several results of the experimental investigations conducted, to examine the behavior of concrete at high temperature that depend on test conditions. [less ▲]
