All methadone-associated deaths from October 2002 to April 2005 are analysed. A regular increase in these fatal intoxications has been recorded, in Belgium as in other countries, due, in particular, to an intensified prescription of this product, of which illicit use as street dope becomes problematic. Over the 30 months period covered by the study, 26 deaths related to methadone were listed, of which 3 occurred in accidental circumstances. In the other 23 cases, methadone can be found, yet always associated with psychotropic substances, mainly benzodiazepines (18 cases), narcotics (15 cases) and finally alcohol (5 cases). Based upon the nature of the products combined with methadone, records have been divided in two groups: In the first group (17 observations), xenobiotics at (infra)therapeutic levels are detected. In the other group (6 observations), xenobiotics at high and toxic levels are detected. Blood methadone concentrations are not so different between the 2 groups of individuals since the median values and the extreme values are worth respectively 308, and 110-11300 microg/L, for the first group and 776 and 93-2080 microg/L for the second group.There is thus an important overlap between the therapeutic blood methadone concentrations (150-400 microg/L) and blood concentrations observed in fatalities.Thus, it is necessary that all information and post-mortem results must be examined in a critical way to identify and justify cause of the death.

This paper distinguishes among three types of generosity of social security systems: average generosity, generosity towards early retirement and generosity towards the poor. On the basis of theoretical predictions, it examines the statistical correlations among those types of generosity for 14 OECD countries over the period 1985-2000. It also shows how they have evolved over time and tries to relate this evolution to the process of economic integration. There are three main findings, the first one being a positive relation between average social security spending and poverty alleviation. There is the negative relation between average spending and inequality reduction. Finally, over the period 1985-95 one sees that poverty alleviation increases on average, but to a degree that decreases with economic openness. [less ▲]

We address the topic of real-time analysis and recognition of silhouettes. The method that we propose first produces object features obtained by a new type of morphological operators, which can be seen as an extension of existing granulometric filters, and then insert them into a tailored classification scheme. Intuitively, given a binary segmented image, our operator produces the set of all the largest rectangles that can be wedged inside any connected component of the image. The latter are obtained by a standard background subtraction technique and morphological filtering. To classify connected components into one of the known object categories, the rectangles of a connected component are submitted to a machine learning algorithm called EXtremely RAndomized trees (Extra-trees). The machine learning algorithm is fed with a static database of silhouettes that contains both positive and negative instances. The whole process, including image processing and rectangle classification, is carried out in real-time. Finally we evaluate our approach on one of today's hot topics: the detection of human silhouettes. We discuss experimental results and show that our method is stable and computationally effective. Therefore, we assess that algorithms like ours introduce new ways for the detection of humans in video sequences. [less ▲]

Based on a non linear quasi-steady wind model, this paper presents the statistical characteristics of the wind loading. These statistical characteristics are computed in an analysical way and validated thanks to a Monte Carlo simulation.After this validation, a parametric study allows giving some general observations concerning the non Gaussianity of the loading. Statistical moments up to the fourth order are computed in an analytical way. The subsequent relations are expressed as a function of the slope and curvature of the aerodynamic coefficients. They are a usefull tool for the assessment of the non Gaussianity of the wind loading on any bridge deck. This is illustrated for three famous European bridges. [less ▲]
