In liberalized network industries, competitors can either compete for service using the existing infrastructure (access) or deploy their own capacity (bypass). We revisit this make-or-buy problem making two contributions to the literature. First we analyze both the profit maximizing behavior of an incumbent and the welfare maximizing behavior when the entrant chooses between access and bypass. Second, we extend the baseline model studied in the literature by allowing for fixed costs of network installation. By analogy to the literature on strategic entry deterrence, we distinguish three regimes of blockaded bypass, deterred bypass and accommodated bypass depending on the entrant's unit cost. We show that the make-or-buy decision of the entrant is not necessarily technologically efficient: when bypass is chosen, it is always the cheapest option but access may be chosen when it is not cost effective.

La fms-like tyrosine kinase 1 soluble (sFlt-1) est un facteur anti-angiogénique libéré en quantité excessive dans la prééclampsie (PE) et impliqué dans la dysfonction endothéliale. Il est comparé au facteur de croissance placentaire pro-angiogénique (PlGF) qui diminue dans la PE. Le ratio sFlt-1/PlGF est présenté dans la littérature comme outil dans la prédiction de la prééclampsie. Un ratio < 38 confirme l’absence de prééclampsie à court-terme. Un ratio ≥ 85 dans la PE précoce (avant 34 semaines aménorrhée (SA)) et ≥ 110 dans le «late onset» (> 34 semaines d’aménorhhée) peut poser le diagnostic de prééclampsie. Dans cette étude rétrospective monocentrique, le ratio sFlt-1/PlGF a été dosé chez 183 patientes à risque dont 67 ont présenté une prééclampsie. Le ratio sFlt-1/PlGF médian pour toutes les patientes évaluées est 100,3. Le ratio médian pour les patientes ayant déclaré une prééclampsie (N=67) est 212,7 alors que celui des femmes sans prééclampsie (N=116) est de 35,4. En accord avec ces analyses, un ratio sFlt-1/PlGF ≥ 38 possède une sensibilité égale à 95,5% et une spécificité égale à 73,3%. Les valeurs prédictives positive (VPP) et négative (VPN) sont, respectivement, 67,4% et 96,6%. Ces résultats suggèrent que le ratio sFlt-1/PlGF peut être une aide dans le diagnostic de la prééclampsie [less ▲]

This chapter tackles cartoonist-curated exhibitions of comics, in which cartoonists select examples from comics archives to frame their own histories of comics. Le Musée privée d’Art Spiegelman is a large, unique exhibition that was organized at the Musée de la bande dessinée in Angoulême, in which Spiegelman proposed his ‘vision’ of comics history, while Eye of the Cartoonist: Daniel Clowes’s Selections from Comics History was organized at the Wexner Center for the Arts in Columbus (Ohio), drawing on the collections from the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum. The analysis of exhibition design and paratexts shows how ‘their’ histories is remediated in the context of the museum, which helps framing a particular discourse on the past of comics relative to the institutional context of each exhibit.

Architects express themselves graphically in order to communicate ideas both to clients and to themselves. In practice, they rely on a variety of representations such as free-hand drawings, 3D computer rendered images, and photomontages to convey their design intent. Research to date has demonstrated differences and commonalities in the ways in which expert designers and laymen perceive visual understanding. It is still unclear how architects themselves use different types of representations to express different intentions, and how accurately their expected audience perceives those intentions. The purpose of this research is to investigate how laymen interpret the initial design intent of an architect’s design, and what role different forms of representations play in this process of understanding a design. This paper describes a five-step process for developing a survey that was used to gather data from 686 laymen respondents. It was found that certain types of simpler representations presented in specific contexts are unexpectedly found to be a more efficient way to faithfully transmit an architectural intent. [less ▲]

Natural and synthetic amphiphilic molecules including lipopeptides, lipopolysaccharides and glycolipids are able to induce defense mechanisms in plants. In the present work, the perception of two synthetic C14 rhamnolipids, namely Alk-RL and Ac-RL, differing only at the level of the lipid tail terminal group, have been investigated using biological and biophysical approaches. We showed that Alk-RL induces a stronger early signaling response in tobacco cell suspensions than does Ac-RL. The interactions of both synthetic RLs with simplified biomimetic membranes were further analyzed using experimental and in silico approaches. Our results indicate that the interactions of Alk-RL and Ac-RL with lipids were different in terms of insertion and molecular responses and were dependent on the lipid composition of model membranes. A more favorable insertion of Alk-RL than Ac-RL into lipid membranes is observed. Alk-RL forms more stable molecular assemblies than Ac-RL with phospholipids and sterols. At the molecular level, the presence of sterols tends to increase the RLs’ interaction with lipid bilayers with a fluidizing effect on the alkyl chains. Taken together, our findings suggest that the perception of these synthetic RLs at the membrane level could be related to a lipid-driven process depending on the organization of the membrane and the orientation of the RLs within the membrane and is correlated with the induction of early signaling responses in tobacco cells.

This paper focuses on the interpolation of the kinematic fields describing the configuration of geometrically exact beams, namely, the position and rotation fields. Two kinematic representations are investigated: the classical approach that treats the displacement and rotation fields separately and the motion approach that treats those two fields as a unit. The latter approach is found to be more consistent with the kinematic description of beams. Then, two finite element interpolation strategies are presented and contrasted. The first interpolates the displacement and rotation fields separately, whereas the second interpolates both fields as a unit, in a manner consistent with the motion approach. The performance of both strategies is evaluated in light of the fundamental requirements for the convergence of the finite element method: the ability to represent rigid-body motions and constant strain states. It is shown that the traditional uncoupled interpolation scheme for the position field approximates that based on the motion approach and that the coupling induced by the interpolation of motion yields superior convergence rates for the representation of constant strain states. This property is known to lead to finite elements that are less prone to the locking phenomenon. [less ▲]

Ce long article compare les régimes juridiques belge et québécois sur la question de la responsabilité civile pour les fautes commises par les juges dans l'exercice du pouvoir judiciaire. Bien que les solutions retenues de part et d’autre de l’Atlantique semblent divergentes a priori – absolutisme de l’immunité du juge au Québec et relativisation de celle-ci en Belgique –, un examen plus approfondi révèle que les incidences pratiques ne sont pas aussi radicalement opposées. Certes, l’État belge peut engager sa responsabilité civile en présence d’une faute du juge, ce qui ne saurait être admis au Québec , mais les modalités de l’action civile que la jurisprudence belge a retenues (spécialement la condition de recevabilité et la notion de faute caractérisée) limitent fortement l’ampleur du contentieux dans ce domaine. Par ailleurs, au Québec, on relève un infléchissement – purement théorique, car aucun cas concret où la responsabilité civile du juge a été retenue n’existe à l’heure actuelle – du principe de l’immunité absolue du juge dans le cadre de sa responsabilité civile personnelle, lorsqu’il agit sans compétence, tout en sachant ne pas avoir compétence d’agir ainsi.

Cet article examine la place du comic strip au sein du roman graphique contemporain à travers l'analyse de Little Tommy Lost (2013) de l'auteur américain Cole Closser. La particularité de cette œuvre tient en ce qu'elle se propose comme un pastiche rigoureux de divers comic strips des années 1920 et 1930, allant jusqu'à se faire passer pour une collection d'anciens strips oubliés puis redécouverts. Little Tommy Lost creuse donc une vague "rétro-réflexive" qui interroge la façon dont la bande dessinée peut remédier ses propres identités culturelles. Il s'agira de cerner les enjeux stylistiques, sériels, narratifs et culturels d'une telle remédiation rétro-réflexive. [less ▲]
