We present direct experimental mapping of the lateral magnetic near-field distribution in plasmonic nanoantennas using aperture scanning nearfield optical microscopy (SNOM). By means of full-field simulations it is demonstrated how the coupling of the hollow-pyramid aperture probe to the nanoantenna induces an effective magnetic dipole which efficiently excites surface plasmon resonances only at lateral magnetic field maxima. This excitation in turn affects the detected light intensity enabling the visualization of the lateral magnetic near-field distribution of multiple odd and even order plasmon modes with subwavelength spatial resolution.

La collaboration en œuvre dans « Veniamo da lontano » est née de l'expérience du théâtre en prison partagée par deux compagnies, partenaires historiques : Teatro Nucleo (Italie) et Alarm Theatre (Allemagne), rejoints par l'association Ures Ter (Hongrie) et le Teatro del Norte (Espagne). En sus, le Centre de Recherche et d’Interventions Sociologiques (CRIS) de l'Université de Liège (Belgique) a intégré le partenariat afin de réaliser une étude exploratoire de l’activité des quatre compagnies de théâtre investissant la prison et de soumettre un compte rendu à l’issue de celui-ci. Ainsi, le présent rapport clôture le partenariat et propose un état des lieux exploratoire de la thématique du théâtre en prison dans une perspective européenne. [less ▲]

Kashin-Beck disease (KBD) is an endemic and chronic osteochondropathy. This disease principally occurs in the Tibet Autonomous Region and in several provinces of the People’s Republic of China. The etiology of the disease remains obscure although environmental factors are assumed to be involved. Diet, in particular, differentiates the rural community, affected by KBD, from the other communities (nomads and city-dwellers), who remain unaffected. In anticipation of a nutrition survey, this study aimed to measure the mineral content (Ca, P, Mg, Fe, Zn, Mn, Cu, Ni, Se, Al, Sr, Mo, Cd, As, Pb, Hg, Cr, and Co) of eight Tibetan staple foods and to compare the results against two food composition tables (FCTs). Foods were sampled in twenty households selected from both an endemic and a non-endemic area of rural Tibet. Ten minerals involved in bone metabolism were measured using atomic and molecular spectrometric methods. Results revealed that a very limited number of food/constituent pairs showed a variation in mineral composition during a single year of testing for a given region. In addition, results showed significant differences in mineral content between the endemic and the non-endemic area, especially for wheat flour. Following our analysis of the mineral content of the Tibetan food samples, results were statistically compared with similar foods listed in two food composition tables: the USDA National Nutrient Database (USDA Food Search for Windows, Version 1.0, database version SR23), and the China Food Composition Table (book 1, 2nd edition). More than 50 to 60% of p-values < 0.05 were highlighted, suggesting the inappropriateness of using FCTs as a reference for nutrition surveys in rural Tibet, and emphasizing the need for analysis of traditional foods. Differences were found to be more or less marked depending on the element considered, and calcium content seemed to show the greatest difference. Although it is obviously too early for definite conclusions to be reached (insufficient number of samples by food and insufficient number of foods analyzed), it seems that the present pilot-study indicates significant discrepancies between measured and tabulated values of the mineral content of certain foods. A more complete survey would therefore seem mandatory. [less ▲]

Background: The utility of serum cystatin C (SCysC) as a filtration marker in kidney transplantation is uncertain. We took advantage of the recent validation of a reference calibrator for SCysC and of newly developed CKD-EPI (Chronic Kidney Disease Epidemiology Collaboration) equations (2012) expressed for use with standardized SCysC level to reassess the performance of SCysC as a filtration marker in kidney transplant recipients. Study Design: Study of diagnostic test accuracy. Setting & Participants: 670 kidney transplant recipients from 3 centers undergoing glomerular filtration rate (GFR) measurements from December 2006 to November 2012. Index Test: Estimated GFR (eGFR) using the 2012 SCysC-based and serum creatinine (SCr)/SCysCbased CKD-EPI equations (eGFRcys and eGFRcr-cys, respectively) and the 2009 SCr-based CKD-EPI equation (eGFRcr), with SCysC and SCr measured at a single laboratory between April 2011 and June 2011. Reference Test: Measured GFR (mGFR) using urinary clearance of inulin. Results: Bias (the difference between mGFR and eGFR) was significantly smaller for eGFRcys and eGFRcr-cys versus eGFRcr ( 2.82 and 0.54 vs 4.4 mL/min/1.73 m2, respectively; P 0.001). Precision (standard deviation of the mean bias) also was better for eGFRcys and eGFRcr-cys versus eGFRcr (12 and 11 vs 13 mL/min/1.73 m2 [P 0.001 for both comparisons]). Accuracy (percentage of GFR estimates within 30% of mGFR) was greater for eGFRcys and eGFRcr-cys versus eGFRcr (81% and 86% vs 75%, respectively [P 0.004 and P 0.001]). Net reclassification index with respect to mGFR of 30 mL/min/1.73 m2 for eGFRcr-cys and eGFRcys versus eGFRcr was 18.8% [95% CI, 8.6%-28.9%] and 22.5% [95% CI, 10.2%-34.9%]. Limitations: Patients were exclusively of European descent; association with transplant outcome was not evaluated. Conclusions: Our data validate the use of both the newly developed SCysC-based and SCr/SCysC-based CKD-EPI equations (2012) in kidney transplant recipients. Both equations perform better than the SCr-based CKD-EPI equation (2009). [less ▲]

Last Interglacial variability is commonly used as an analogue for variability in a future, warmer world. Pervasive cycles are increasingly apparent in Last Interglacial archives, although studies in continental regions are under-represented. Here we provide a new isotopic record of diatom silica (d18Odiatom) spanning c. 127.5e115 ka BP from Lake Baikal in central Asia. Peak rain-fed discharge occurred c. 125.4 ka BP, shortly after July insolation maximum and initiation of Siberian soil development. Between 127 and 119.7 ka BP there are six marked fluctuations in d18Odiatom values, with a pacing of approximately 1.26 0.3 ka, similar to fluctuations of within lake productivity. Fluctuations in d18Odiatom values show good agreement with patterns in Atlantic meridional overturning circulation (AMOC), supporting hypothesis of strong teleconnections via theWesterlies between the North Atlantic and central Asia. Two periods of low d18Odiatom values are especially notable. The earliest between c. 126.5 and 126 ka BP is concurrent with the final stages of the Heinrich 11. The second between 120.5 and 119.7 ka BP is also concurrent with an increase in ice-rafted debris in the North Atlantic. Aquatic productivity in Lake Baikal increased between 119.7 and 117.4 ka BP before declining to the top of the record (115 ka BP) concomitant with a shift to predominately cool steppe catchment vegetation. However, isotopic composition of discharge into Lake Baikal provides evidence for strong penetration of Westerlies into central Asia during the latter stages of the Last Interglacial. Variability in d18Odiatom values was compared between the Last Interglacial and the Holocene. Millennial-scale variability was significantly more stable during the Last Interglacial, possibly linked to diminished influence of freshwater discharge on AMOC during periods of higher, global mean temperatures.

The Uppermost Famennian“Etroeungt Limestone”, historically recognized by Gosselet, is the subject of a detailed presentation. Levels providing faunas are situated in the historic stratotype du Parcq quarry section at Etroeungt, and in the Avesnelles railway section, that has earlier been proposed as a parastratotype, because the sequence is incomplete in the du Parcq quarry. However, investigation for a new parastratotype is necessary because the upper limit is hidden in the Avesnelles railway section which also proves to be very poor in fauna. [less ▲]
