This paper investigates the potential of a cellular automata (CA) model based on logistic regression (logit) and Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) to simulate the dynamics of urban growth. The model assesses urbanization likelihood based on (i) a set of urban development driving forces (calibrated based on logit) and (ii) the land-use of neighboring cells (calibrated based on MCMC). An innovative feature of this CA model is the incorporation of MCMC to automatically calibrate the CA neighborhood transition rules. The MCMC based CA model is applied to Wallonia region (Belgium) to simulate urban growth from 1990 to 2000 using Corine Land Cover data (CLC). The outcome of logit model is evaluated by the relative operating characteristic (ROC). The simulated map of 2000 is then validated against 2000 actual map based on cell-to-cell location agreement. The model outcomes are realistic and relatively accurate confirming the effectiveness of the proposed MCMC-CA approach. [less ▲]

Graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) remains a major cause of morbidity and mortality after allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. Several studies have suggested that rapamycin (RAPA), an mTOR inhibitor with immunosuppressive properties, may reduce GVHD severity and mortality, possibly by promoting regulatory T cells (Tregs). However, few data have been reported about the impact of this drug on overall T cell population. The present work aims at investigating the mechanisms by which RAPA impacts GVHD in a humanized mouse model of GVHD (NSG mice infused with human PBMCs). We observed that RAPA injections significantly reduced xenogeneic GVHD lethality and severity. RAPA dramatically reduced human cells chimerism in RAPA mice and increased CD4+/CD8+ T cells balance due to a lower proliferation of CD8+ T cells. In addition, the frequencies of naive CD4+ and CD8+ T cells were higher and the CD4+ T cells showed a reduced effector phenotype (CD45RO+CD27-). Further, the differentiation of helper T cells (Th1, Th2 and Th17) was significantly decreased in treated mice. Tregs were positively affected as RAPA up-regulated their expression of BCL-2 and KI67 as well as their STAT5 phosphorylation level, leading to higher Treg frequency in treated mice. Altogether these data suggest that RAPA ameliorates GVHD by lowering cytotoxic and effector CD4+ T cells frequency as well as promoting Tregs. [less ▲]

Partant d’une problématisation de la méthode phénoménologique mise en jeu par "L’Imaginaire", nous proposons de relire les développements de ce texte à partir de la perspective offerte par la théorie de l’intentionnalité du premier Sartre. Nous tenterons ainsi de dégager l’unité systématique du projet sartrien d’une « phénoménologie de l’image » en le rapportant aux propositions philosophiques posées de manière décisive par "l’article sur l’intentionnalité". Par ce biais, il s’agira également de fixer les propriétés de la conscience imageante, ainsi que les fonctions jouées par l’acte d’imagination dans l’économie générale de la conscience, en particulier dans l’événement de sa personnalisation. De sorte que nous parcourons les tensions reliant l’imagination de la conscience à son ipséité ; tandis que, du point de vue de l’histoire de la philosophie, nous examinerons certaines des torsions qu’appliqua Sartre sur l’analyse husserlienne de l’image afin d’approfondir celle-ci dans la direction d’une philosophie de la liberté personnelle du sujet.

The two-satellite SAOCOM-1A/B SAR constellation to be deployed by Argentina shall provide full-polarimetric acquisitions at L-band, the main mission driver being the generation of soil moisture maps in the agriculture and hydrological contexts. The two satellites shall be incorporated, together with the Italian COSMO-Skymed satellites, in an X-L band constellation (referred to as SIASGE system) for risk management. Following an offer from CONAE, ESA has initiated the development of a passive receiving micro-satellite, SAOCOM-CS, for carrying out tomographic, interferometric, and bistatic imaging. SAOCOM-CS will fly in formation with SAOCOM-1B providing unique new single-pass measurements at L-band. The present paper reports the first results from an on-going study that comes in support to both the SAOCOM and SAOCOM-CS missions. The objective of this project is to accomplish a breakthrough in the development of algorithms and associated tools for change detection in Argentina, the core domain of focus being agriculture. The processing developments carried out in this project include a study of the polarimetric signature for different targets, and a multitemporal, spatial and angular analysis of the polarimetric parameters for different L band targets. The results are then applied in non-supervised algorithms for classification of SAR images and the development of simulated SAR images. Tests data sets include airborne and spaceborne SAR images and corresponding field measurements. [less ▲]

Introduction: Donation after circulatory death (DCD) has been proposed to partially overcome the organ donor shortage. DCD-LT remains controversial, with reported increased risk of graft loss and retransplantation. The authors retrospectively reviewed a single centre experience with controlled DCD-LT in a 14-year period. Patients and Methods: 125 DCD-LT were consecutively performed between 2003 and 2016. All donation and procurement procedures were performed as controlled DCD in operative rooms. Data are presented as median (ranges). Median donor age was 56 years (16–84). Most grafts were flushed with HTK solution in the first part of experience, and more recently with IGL1. Allocation was centre-based. Median follow-up was 52 (1–164) months. No patient was lost to follow-up. Results: Median total DCD warm ischemia was 19 min (9–39). Median cold ischemia was 238 min (105–576). Patient survivals were 90.2%, 77.5% and 74.5 % at 1.3 and 5 years, respectively. Graft survivals were 87.7%, 76.3% and 73.2% at 1.3 and 5 years, respectively. Biliary complications included anas- tomotic strictures and extrahepatic main bile duct ischemic obstruction, that were managed either by endoscopy or hepatico-jejunostomy. No PNF was observed in this series and one graft was lost due to ischemic cholangiopathy. Discussion: In this series, DCD LT appears to provide results similar to classical LT. Short cold ischemia and recipient selection with low MELD score may be the keys to good results in DCD LT, in terms of graft survival and avoidance of ischemic cholangiopathy. [less ▲]

Introduction: Mesenchymal stromal cell (MSC) infusion could be a mean to establish donor-specific immunological tolerance in solid organ recipients. The aim of this phase 2 study was test the hypothesis of possible induction of operative tolerance by third-party MSC in liver transplant (LT) recipients. Methods: 10 stable and low-risk LT recipients under standard immunosup- pression (Tac-MMF- low dose steroids) received 1.5–3 9 106/kg third-party MSCs on post-operative day 3 ` 2. By protocol, progressive weaning of immunosuppression was attempted in patients who did not develop rejection and had normal graft function and month-6 graft biopsy. Tacrolimus was progressively tapered from day 180 to be discontinued by day 270. After day- 270 graft biopsy, MMF was progressively tapered and definitely discontinued by day 365 in the absence of rejection. Results: One patient from the MSC group was excluded from immunosup- pression withdrawal attempt due to HCC recurrence, and the 9 others met the necessary criteria. In one patient, tacrolimus and MMF withdrawal was performed without rejection. In two patients, MMF monotherapy was achieved at month 9, but graft rejection occurred during MMF withdrawal and was successfully treated by tacrolimus reintroduction. In 6 patients, the transam- inases significantly increased during tacrolimus withdrawal. In these cases, withdrawal was cancelled and liver tests normalised after increase of the tacrolimus dose. No graft was lost due to the withdrawal attempt. Conclusion: A single post transplant MSC injection is not sufficient to induce operative tolerance after LT. [less ▲]

An anomaly in the Congress of Vienna: Neutral Moresnet or how to rethink the political and linguistic boundaries. Neutral-Moresnet was a 3.4 km² neutral territory near Aachen. Its history is the result of a misunderstanding. In Article 25 of the Vienna Final Act, Moresnet is annexed to Prussia, but in Article 66 this province is placed under Dutch sovereignty. In the site of "Vieille-Montagne” an important zinc mine is discovered. They decided to establish co-sovereignty. From then on, two commissioners oversee the area. Over time, Moresnet developed a national folklore, especially with the process of Nation-State at the end of the 19th century. This triangle is seen by foreign observers as the smallest country in the world and even as an "imaginary country" (vampires, new Eldorado). Some Esperantists hoped to make Moresnet the country of international languages ​​because in this tiny territory German, French and dialects are spoken. Moresnet rethinks the concept of border. After the Treaty of Versailles in 1919, this small state belongs to Belgium. [less ▲]

Introduction and Aims: Estrogens have a positive impact on the auditory function. Indeed, estradiol (E2) treatment in animals protects against acoustic trauma and aminoglycoside toxicity and its depletion can contribute to age-related hearing loss. However, estradiol is not suitable in clinical practice, given the increased risk of cancer and thromboembolic events. There is a need to find new treatments that present a higher benefit/risk ratio. In this work, we studied a new natural estrogen derivative, estetrol (E4), that was shown to act as a Selective Estrogen Receptor Modulator (SERM). Estetrol is thus able to display estrogen-like as well as antiestrogen activity depending on the target tissue. Interestingly, E4 allows the prevention of menopause symptoms such as osteoporosis or hot flushes through an agonistic action, whereas it exerts anti-estrogenic effects on the mammary gland. These preclinical data suggest that E4 presents a safer profile than E2. Material and Methods: To investigate whether this molecule presents otoprotective actions, we exposed P2 cultured organs of Corti to gentamicin, with or without estetrol (E4). After 48 hours of culture, hair cell survival was evaluated following anti-myosin VII Immunohistochemistry. We next moved on to in vivo studies using young zebrafish larvae (5dpf), since they constitute a highly effective model to determine the potential ototoxicity of drugs and to screen for candidates of hair cell protective agents. We monitored the survival of hair cells within neuromasts following chronic or acute exposure to gentamicin. Results: In cochlear culture, gentamicin-induced hair cell loss was significantly reduced by E4. Interestingly, the toxicity of aminoglycoside was also reduced in vivo upon treatment of zebrafish larvae with E4. Conclusion: The survival rate of hair cells was increased in the presence of estetrol both in vitro and in vivo indicating that estetrol constitutes an interesting protective drug against hearing loss.

The batch-to-flow translation of inter- and intramolecular strategies for the diastereoselective preparation of the active pharmaceutical ingredient threo-methylphenidate hydrochloride is presented. Both inter- and intramolecular strategies imply the telescoping of multiple processing steps and the generation of unstable diazospecies under continuous-flow conditions. The intermolecular strategy relies on an unprecedented continuous-flow Rh-catalyzed intermolecular C-H carbene insertion, providing enriched threo-N-Boc methylphenidate in 38% or 19% isolated yield according to sequential or fully telescoped processes, respectively. Quantitative Boc-deprotection is carried out off-line. The intramolecular strategy relies on a continuous-flow thermal intramolecular C-H carbene insertion, providing enriched threo-methylphenidate hydrochloride in 70% isolated yield. A continuous-flow photochemical alternative is also presented. The critical step of the most promising intramolecular strategy is implemented on mesoscale in a pilot-scale continuous-flow reactor.

This paper reports on a preliminary investigation into the elaboration, by the additive process known as laser cladding, of composite coatings with a matrix of stainless steel 316L reinforced with varying contents of tungsten (WC) or silicon carbides (SiC) particles. Laser cladding is characterised by ultra-fast solidification and cooling rates, thus giving rise to ultra-fine out-of-equilibrium microstructures and potentially enhanced mechanical properties. Both types of composite coatings – i.e. with SiC or WC ‒ are compared in terms of their microstructures and hardness. Special attention is given to the dissolution of the carbides particles and to interfacial reactions taking place between the particles and the metallic matrix. [less ▲]

Les eaux souterraines des aquifères de socle cristallin de la partie centrale du Bénin (Département des Collines) présentent des concentrations élevées en fluorure, allant jusqu'à 7 mg/L alors que la norme recommandée par l'OMS est de 1.5 mg/L. La consommation de ces eaux à fortes teneurs en fluorure impacte la santé humaine. La population de la région est effectivement largement affectée par la fluorose dentaire. Les investigations hydrogéochimiques révèlent que l’origine de ces teneurs anormales est géogénique avec une forte contribution des minéraux ferromagnésiens, principalement la biotite. Ce travail se propose de réaliser une double cartographie à l'échelle du département des Collines: (i) une carte de l'estimation des teneurs en fluorure dans les eaux souterraines par krigeage ordinaire et (ii) une carte de la probabilité d'excéder la valeur guide de l’OMS (1.5 mg/L) en fluorure dans les eaux par krigeage d'indicatrices. Outre la cartographie en elle-même, l'analyse de la structure spatiale des données (teneurs en fluorure des eaux souterraines) à travers le calcul des variogrammes montre qu'il existe un lien fort entre celles-ci et les structures géologiques dominantes, confirmant l'origine géogénique du fluorure. Ces informations cartographiques serviront de support à la décision pour les décideurs et les gestionnaires de la ressource quant au choix judicieux des zones de captage d'eau potable pour minimiser/éviter les risques de fortes teneurs en fluorure.

In order to assess the performances of the domestic heating boilers with a CE mark, a wood pellets fired condensing boiler has been purchased and installed in the Laboratory for tests. The objective of the study was not only to check the announced performances, but mainly to investigate the influence of the different parameters affecting the functioning of the boiler, the thermal efficiency and the pollutants (NOx and CO) emission being aimed at. Tests have been performed to study the influence of the cycling frequency of the burner functioning, the overall excess air, the return water temperature, and the output power of the boiler. As announced by the manufacturer, the tested boiler fulfils the requirements of the Blue Angel Label, but the recommended value for the excess air (1.2) can be reduced to a value of about 0.4 without excessive emissions of CO. The boiler could perform better if the ON period of the cycle of the burner is increased even better if the OFF period is suppressed. The NOx are mainly formed from the nitrogen content of the pellets and their emissions can only be reduced by a lower nitrogen content of the pellets than the limit stated in the standard. Random peaks observed in the evolution of CO, the boiler being operating in steady state regime, are attributed to the combustion process of pellets which is a non-continuous process by nature.

As well known, in the analysis of bird impact events the bird is often reduced, even experimentally, to a surrogate projectile modeled as a weakly compressible fluid (typically a mixture of water and air). From a numerical standpoint, the presence of a free surface and the strong interaction with the aircraft structures represent a limit for traditional computational fluid dynamics methods based on an Eulerian grid. On the other hand, classical Lagrangian methods cannot cope with the extremely large deformations experienced by the projectile during the impact. The Particle Finite Element Method (PFEM) is a Lagrangian particle method that can account for very large deformations, preserving the robustness and generality of the finite element method, and thus owning a key advantage over other approaches, e.g. Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH), usually cursed with consistency and stability issues. To assess the possibilities of the method in the context of bird impact, theoretical analyses are initially performed based on the impact of a water jet on a rigid surface. Then, the influence of the geometry of a more realistic projectile is analyzed and the capability of the method to take into account separation and fragmentation is highlighted. [less ▲]

We present a unified view of pulsations in both pre-ELM and ELM white dwarfs within the framework of state-of-the-art binary evolution calculations that take into account the combined effects of diffusion and rotational mixing. We find that rotational mixing is able to maintain against settling a sufficient amount of helium in the envelope in order to fuel pulsations through He II-He III ionization on the pre-ELM branch of the evolutionary track in the spectroscopic HR diagram. By the time such a low-mass white dwarf enters the ZZ Ceti instability strip on the cooling branch, settling has taken over rotational mixing and produced a pure H envelope. Such a star then pulsates again, but, this time, as a DA white dwarf of the ZZ Ceti type. [less ▲]

From literature, it is clear that the discussion about the potential benefits and drawbacks of autonomous vehicles is not finished. In order to provide insight into this discussion, this paper investigates different attitudes with respect to different key factors for the deployment of system of autonomous taxis. To this end, a stated adaptation experiment was carried out in Belgium in March 2016. To investigate which factors influence the variables of interest, i.e. (i) the number of minutes one is prepared to wait before an autonomous taxi picks up the person, (ii) the ownership of a private car when autonomous taxis are available, (iii) the willigness to share an autonomous taxi, (iv) the permittance for the autonomous vehicle to take a detour when it is beneficial for the society, and (v) the willigness to share your private agenda to ensure a timely autonomous taxi, different regression models are constructed. The results show that the considered explanatory factors only capture a small part of the variability five variables of interest. This is as signal that market segmentation might be very challenging. Besides, this is an indication that a broader range of factors should be included such as life-style factors and psychological constructs. Finally, this acknowledges the need for some skepticism with regard to the potential benefits of autonomous vehicles. The results are interesting for providing realistic boundaries and cross-classification in further simulation studies that look at the benefits of autonomous vehicles. [less ▲]

Digital phenotyping presents a very important tool for scientists to measure with high accuracy the effects of external phenomena on plant development. Plant phenotyping is mainly based on imaging techniques. However, the number of images and parameters used to store and treat these parameters are continuously growing. Consequently, the high-throughput of data and the need of specific treatment in real or near real-time requires a large quantity of resources. Moreover, the increasing amount of particular phenotyping case studies needs the development of specific application. Cloud architectures offers means to store a wide range of numerous data and host a large quantity of specific software to process these data. In this paper, we propose to match digital phenotyping need and cloud possibilities in a lambda cloud architecture in order to store and treat this important amount of data. We also propose a data platform allowing to host applications and access to the stored data within the lambda architecture. The present application platform allows to use several frameworks with a fine-grained resource use of the cluster. We develop then a case study in a controlled environment system (growth chamber) where we grow basil plants. [less ▲]

The mock-up of a great passive silencer used for noise attenuation in industrial applications has been designed and tested in laboratory. This mock-up consists of three metal casing containing the noise source and several removable rails and supports, allowing the test of different configurations of parallel absorbing baffles. The output of the silencer radiates in an anechoic chamber in order to simulate free-field conditions. The acoustic attenuation has been measured not only at the output, but also inside the silencer, with a mobile microphone located at several positions along the axis. Also, the tested configurations include three types of absorbing pillows and several geometrical arrangements. The results show that the maximum insertion loss (dB) measured at the output of the silencer corresponds to frequencies between 800Hz and 2.5kHz and its value strongly depends on the air gaps between baffles. The measurements with the mobile microphone show a linear decrease of the sound pressure level with the distance along the axis (mainly between 100Hz and 1kHz), which corresponds to the depth of absorbing material involved in the attenuation. Finally, a comparison with a real-scale silencer shows a fairly good correspondence. [less ▲]

Tree-based ensemble models are heavy memory- wise. An undesired state of affairs consider- ing nowadays datasets, memory-constrained environment and fitting/prediction times. In this paper, we propose the Globally Induced Forest (GIF) to remedy this problem. GIF is a fast prepruning approach to build lightweight ensembles by iteratively deepening the current forest. It mixes local and global optimizations to produce accurate predictions under memory constraints in reasonable time. We show that the proposed method is more than competitive with standard tree-based ensembles under corresponding constraints, and can sometimes even surpass much larger models. [less ▲]

Objects and practices used and performed daily, play a central role in the definition of the self, and migration paths, meant both in a personal and in a collective sense, determine complex dynamics which involve them directly. Starting from De Certeau's analysis of everyday life [1980], my research focuses on Moroccan women living in Milan's suburbs, and it aims at studying how they make themselves and the place where they live, after migration, through materiality, moving in peculiar ways among what new local context (with its mass production and wished standardization of habits) and origin country (where what is perceived as "traditional" constantly meets the global dimension of goods and practices) impose. The murmuring of everyday practices and the words of the objects involved talk about women who perform and use them in ways that lead a complex reflection on the definition of a proper Moroccan "style" [Gell, 1998]: if we can say that a person is made of material objects which determine an induction of its own agency, of biographical history and of collective memory, equally we might state that these objects interlace among each other and define different manners of being Moroccan, and of being it abroad.
