    2008-03-29

    It is widely agreed that exams must be fair; yet what this exactly means is not made clear. One may mean fairness of treatment, but this merely propagates the fairness or unfairness of pre-existing rules. Fairness of opportunity on the other hand necessarily leads to identical grades for everyone, which clearly makes it inapplicable. Neither view is helpful to make decisions on competing claims: fairness of treatment ignores the problem and fairness of opportunity holds all claims to be equally valid. To escape this deadlock one needs an external criterion to replace fairness viewed as student-student comparison.

    In many societies, the aging of the population is becoming a major problem. This raises difficult issues for ethics and public policy. On what is known as the fair innings view, it is not impermissible to give lower priority to policies that primarily benefit the elderly. Philosophers have tried to justify this view on various grounds. In this article, I look at a consequentialist, a fairness-based, and a contractarian justification. I argue that all of them have implausible implications and fail to correspond to our moral intuitions. I end by outlining a different kind of consequentialist justification that avoids those implications and corresponds better to our considered moral judgments. PMID:24909449

  3. Minimisation de l'effet de la grille collectrice dans une photopile solaire à haute concentration solaire

    2005-05-01

    Une fois la croissance cristalline et la jonction sont réalisées, on collecte la puissance électrique délivrée par la photopile au moyen des contacts métalliques déposés sur deux faces. Sur la face arrière il n'y a pas de problèmes particuliers puisque toute la surface peut être utilisée ; la face avant pose essentiellement deux problèmes : Du point de vue optique, le taux de couverture doit être faible car la surface cachée par la métallisation est inactive ; Du point de vue électrique, le drainage des photoporteurs doit se faire avec le minimum de chutes de tension dans le semi-conducteur comme dans le métal. L'objectif de notre travail est de minimiser l'effet de la grille de collecte d'une photopile solaire à homojonction (Si n+p) d'une géométrie circulaire (rayon a=4.9cm), ayant une métallisation à l'argent (?M=1.610-6 ?.cm) et une résistance de contact ?C=10-5?.cm2. Nos calculs sont faits sous les conditions : AM1.5 et une concentration variant de 1à1000 soleils. Les différentes pertes causées par cette grille sont : - La puissance perdue par l'occultation de la grille (taux d'ombre), - Perte due au contact métal/semi-conducteur, - Puissance dissipée dans la résistance de couche entre barreaux, - Les pertes dans la métallisation de la grille. Nous résumons, dans cet article, les résultats de notre modélisation par : ast Dans l'intervalle [1, 200 soleils] le rendement de conversion varie de 14.7% à 18.1% pour un angle thêta (= 1/2 angle entre deux doigts consécutifs de grille) variant de 0.116 rad à 0.044 rad, ast Dans l'intervalle [ {200,1000 soleils} ] le rendement de conversion varie de 17.8% à 16.98% qui correspond ainsi à une variation de 0.041 rad à 0.026 rad de l'angle thêta.

  5. Caracterisation de la cohesion de l'interface AMF/polymere dans une structure deformable adaptative

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Fischer-Rousseau, Charles

    Les structures déformables adaptatives (SDA) sont appelées à jouer un rôle important en aéronautique entre autres. Les alliages à mémoire de forme (AMF) sont un des candidats les plus prometteurs. Beaucoup de travail reste toutefois à faire avant que ces structures rencontrent les exigences élevées reliées à leur intégration dans un contexte aéronautique. Des travaux de recherche ont montré que la résistance à la décohésion de l’interface AMF/polymère peut être un élément limitant dans la performance des SDA. Dans ce travail, l’effet sur la résistance à la décohésion de l’interface AMF/polymère de divers traitements de surface, géométries de fil et types de polymère est évalué. La géométrie du fil est modifiée par une combinaison spécifique de laminage à froid et de recuit postdéformation qui maintient les propriétés de mémoire de forme tout en permettant de réduire l’aire de la section transversale du fil. Le traitement thermomécanique le plus prometteur est proposé. Une nouvelle méthode d’évaluation de la résistance à la décohésion est développée. Plutôt que de tester les fils en arrachement et de mesurer la force maximale, les tests en contraction sont basés sur la capacité des fils d’AMF à se contracter s’ils ont été encastrés dans un état tiré et qu’ils sont chauffés par effet Joule. L’hypothèse qu’on pose est que ces tests sont une meilleure approximation des conditions rencontrées dans une SDA, où les fils se contractent plutôt qu’ils sont arrachés par une force externe à la structure. Bien qu’une décohésion partielle ait été observée pour tous les échantillons, l’aire de la surface où il y a décohésion tait plus grande pour les échantillons avec une pré-déformation plus grande. Le front de décohésion a semblé cesser de progresser après les cycles de chauffage initiaux lorsque la vitesse de chauffage était faible. Un modèle numérique simulant la réponse thermique transitoire du polymère et du fil d’AMF lors d’un chauffage par effet Joule est programmé à l’aide du logiciel ANSYS. Le comportement du modèle est validé avec des résultats expérimentaux où des thermocouples encastrés dans l’échantillon permettent des mesures locales de la température. Les résultats calculés sont en accord avec les résultats expérimentaux d’un point de vue qualitatif, mais accusent des différences significatives d’un point de vue quantitatif. La mesure du champ de déformation à l’interface du fil et du polymère dans une SDA permettrait de développer et valider un modèle numérique prenant en compte l’effet mémoire de forme d’un fil encastré dans une matrice polymère. Dans ce but, une machine de traction miniature permettant l’analyse par microspectrométrie Raman in situ est présentée. Elle a une capacité de 1 kN et un déplacement maximal de 20 mm dans une enveloppe de conception totale de 160 mm de diamètre. La machine est conçue pour que le milieu de l’échantillon soit immobile grâce au fait que le mouvement des deux extrémités soit symétrique. Les résultats montrent que du travail supplémentaire est nécessaire avant de pouvoir encastrer des fils d’AMF dans une structure déformable adaptative. Mots-clés: décohésion, structure active, alliage à mémoire de forme, AMF, tests d’arrachement.

    HISTORIQUE : Au cours des trois dernières décennies, une attention grandissante a été portée à l’étude du syndrome de vulvodynie, soit un inconfort vulvaire chronique inexpliqué, éprouvé en l’absence de pathologie précisée. En plus d’avoir des répercussions physiques, l’expérience de la vulvodynie comporte une dimension psychosociale. OBJECTIF : Cet article vise à faire une recension des écrits sur la réalité psychoaffective des femmes qui éprouvent une vulvodynie. MÉTHODE : Une recherche documentaire basée sur une exploration systématique de textes présentant des résultats de recherche et recensés dans les principales banques de données en sciences sociales, dont Dissertation Abstracts, Current Contents et PsycINFO, a été réalisée. RÉSULTATS : Cette recension des écrits révèle, malgré la présence de certains résultats divergents, que les femmes ayant une vulvodynie affrontent souvent des difficultés identitaires et psychologiques, qui sont influencées notamment par les normes sociales de sexualité et de féminité. Pour composer avec ces difficultés, les femmes développent différentes stratégies visant à diminuer le stress occasionné par la douleur et à améliorer leur bien-être psychologique. CONCLUSION : Les difficultés relationnelles et psychologiques vécues par les femmes ayant une vulvodynie ne découlent pas seulement de la douleur physique, mais aussi du sens qu’elles lui accordent, souvent influencé par les discours sociaux sur l’hétérosexualité et la féminité. Il importe donc d’intervenir auprès des femmes en tenant compte de l’influence du contexte social tout en poursuivant le développement des connaissances sur les aspects psychosociaux de cette expérience.

    2009-01-01

    Priority setting in health care under conventional rules of health economic evaluation is based upon the ethos of attempting to maximize post-treatment health gain given available health care resources. In his later years, Alan Williams advocated the "fair innings argument,'' which balances differences in whole lifetime experiences of health with differences in post-treatment outcomes when prioritizing people for health care. This article reports a study that presented respondents with a number of abstract health care decision contexts in an attempt to test the extent to which post-treatment health maximization, the fair innings argument, or, indeed other "decision rules,'' are evident in the respondents' answers. The results indicate that the most commonly observed decision rule differs substantially across health care contexts, and therefore imply that rather than pursue an overarching decision rule, it may be more appropriate to vary the rule according to the particular health care decision context under consideration.

    A vehicle underbody fairing apparatus for reducing aerodynamic drag caused by a vehicle wheel assembly, by reducing the size of a recirculation zone formed under the vehicle body immediately downstream of the vehicle wheel assembly. The fairing body has a tapered aerodynamic surface that extends from a front end to a rear end of the fairing body with a substantially U-shaped cross-section that tapers in both height and width. Fasteners or other mounting devices secure the fairing body to an underside surface of the vehicle body, so that the front end is immediately downstream of the vehicle wheel assembly and a bottom section of the tapered aerodynamic surface rises towards the underside surface as it extends in a downstream direction.

  11. Fair weather atmospheric electricity

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Harrison, R. G.

    2011-06-01

    Not long after Franklin's iconic studies, an atmospheric electric field was discovered in "fair weather" regions, well away from thunderstorms. The origin of the fair weather field was sought by Lord Kelvin, through development of electrostatic instrumentation and early data logging techniques, but was ultimately explained through the global circuit model of C.T.R. Wilson. In Wilson's model, charge exchanged by disturbed weather electrifies the ionosphere, and returns via a small vertical current density in fair weather regions. New insights into the relevance of fair weather atmospheric electricity to terrestrial and planetary atmospheres are now emerging. For example, there is a possible role of the global circuit current density in atmospheric processes, such as cloud formation. Beyond natural atmospheric processes, a novel practical application is the use of early atmospheric electrostatic investigations to provide quantitative information on past urban air pollution.

    2009-04-01

    The opinion dynamics studies how a final consensus emerges from a diversified initial configuration. The final result can be an artifact arising in the voting processes and overlook the features of the initial configuration, which leads to the unfair result. We explore the concept of fairness in opinion dynamics and propose a quantitative measurement in a model system, which allows us to reach a final consensus reflecting impartially the major opinion. For a two-choice system, the unfairness alternates with the increase of meeting agents M. With an odd M, the fair results can be expected; with an even M, the unfairness decays monotonically with an increasing M. When the number of choices is larger than two, such an alternating is smeared out. The fairness at an odd M can no longer be reached. The unfairness increases a bit with the increasing number of choices. Similar M-dependence can be observed for different number of choices. We conclude that the number of choices plays a minor role in reaching a fair final consensus. The fairness is mainly controlled by the meeting size.

  7. State Fair Recipes

    NSDL National Science Digital Library

    As the summer continues to wane on, one tradition remains intact throughout much of America: the state fair. Usually the state fair is a place for local residents to showcase their agricultural marvels, and for urbanites to experience a bit of the country life, albeit rather briefly and somewhat voyeuristically. While there may be an uneasy alliance between urbanites and rural denizens during these periods, one thing is for sure: they both love the award-winning eats that are often the highlight of such gatherings. One is certain to find certain specialties at every fair, ranging from the famous scones of the Washington State Fair in Puyallup to the roast corn that may be found at just about every state fair. This website brings all of those award-winning recipes together in one place, as visitors can find recipes for such dishes as beef and cheddar puffs, braised lamb shanks, and down home chicken pot pie. Desserts don't get short thrift here either, as visitors can read the recipes for ginger lime pear pie and many others as well. Finally, visitors can read profiles of the various award-winning cooks and find recipes from 2000 to 2004.

    Ce cas clinique rapporte un cas de tuberculose hépatique de présentation échographique exceptionnelle. Nous avons réalisé l’échographie abdominale d'un adolescent de 12 ans, immuno-compétent, sans notion de contage tuberculeux, se plaignant de douleur abdominale chronique évoluant depuis 8 mois associée à des signes frustres d‘imprégnation tuberculeuse. L'examen échographique a été réalisé à l'aide d'un appareil écho-doppler de marque Logic 400 de la firme General Electric. L’échographie abdominale a mis en évidence, une hépatomégalie comportant de multiples micro-abcès hypoéchogènes homogènes, mesurant entre 3 et 4 mm de diamètre et disséminés dans tout le parenchyme hépatique donnant l'aspect de miliaire. Une ascite de moyenne abondance localisée dans le pelvis a été objectivée. Il n'y avait pas d'adénopathies profondes ni de nodules péritonéaux. La ponction biopsie hépatique sous guidage échographique a permis de faire le diagnostic de tuberculose hépatique à l'histologie et à la bactériologie. Le patient a été mis sous traitement spécifique avec une surveillance échographique mensuelle. La disparition des micro-abcès et le tarissement de l'ascite ont été obtenus au bout du 4ème mois du traitement. Celle de l'hépatomégalie est survenue un mois plus tard. L’échographie joue un rôle très important dans la détection précoce de la tuberculose hépatique, son diagnostic précis et la surveillance du traitement. Lors de sa réalisation dans un contexte de douleur abdominale chronique chez l'enfant, l’échographiste devrait évoquer le diagnostic de tuberculose hépatique devant une hépatomégalie multi-micro-abcédée, même chez l'enfant immuno-compétent.

    The idea that human morality might be the product of evolution is not popular. The reason is partly that the moral principles that actually govern our day-to-day behavior have been idealized in a way that makes a natural origin seem impossible. This paper puts the case for a more down-to-earth assessment of human morality by arguing that the evolution of our sense of fairness can be traced to the practicalities of food-sharing. When animals share food, they can be seen as enjoying the fruits of an implicit bargain to ensure each other against hunger. The implications of this observation are explored using the tools of game theory. The arguments lead to a structure for fair bargains that closely resembles the structure proposed by John Rawls, the leading moral philosopher of the last century. PMID:25024181

    2011-01-01

    "What can be learned about from the sole fact that I have been shown this on-line advertisement?" By definition, the answer to this question is non-trivial whenever advertisements are not served indiscriminately. Advertisers, hoping to have targeted precisely and appropriately, use information from multiple sources to give different on-line experiences to different people. Thus the message of "giving you the ads that interest you" does not tell the whole story of behavioral targeting, and the resulting differentiation in user experience may, or may not, work to the advantage of the user. When it results in differential pricing it arguably does not benefit some users; when it results in steering minorities away from certain neighborhoods or toward less advantageous credit card offerings, it is illegal. This raises the question of fairness in advertising, and, more generally, of fairness in classification. This rather broad topic is not restricted to the digital world, and encompasses classification in such div...

    Charmed mesons in hot and dense matter are studied within a self-consistent coupled-channel approach for the experimental conditions of density and temperature expected at the CBM experiment at FAIR/GSI. The $D$ meson spectral function broadens with increasing density with an extended tail towards lower energies due to $\\Lambda_c(2593) N^{-1}$ and $\\Sigma_c(2800) N^{-1}$ excitations. The in-medium $\\bar D$ meson mass increases with density. We also discuss the consequences for the renormalized properties in nuclear matter of the charm scalar $D_{s0}(2317)$ and D(2400), and the predicted hidden charm X(3700) resonances at FAIR energies.

    Proton radiography was invented in the 1990's at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) as a diagnostic to study dynamic material properties under extreme pressures, strain and strain rate. Since this time hundreds of dynamic proton radiography experiments have been performed at LANL and a facility has been commissioned at the Institute for Theoretical and Experimental Physics (ITEP) in Russia for similar applications in dynamic material studies. Recently an international effort has investigated a new proton radiography capability for the study of dynamic material properties at the Facility for Anti-proton and Ion Research (FAIR) located in Darmstadt, Germany. This new Proton microscope for FAIR(PRIOR) will provide radiographic imaging of dynamic systems with unprecedented spatial, temporal and density resolution, resulting in a window for understanding dynamic material properties at new length scales. It is also proposed to install the PRIOR system at the GSI Helmholtzzentrum fuer Schwerionenforschung before installation at FAIR for dynamic experiments with different drivers including high explosives, pulsed power and lasers. The design of the proton microscope and expected radiographic performance is presented.

    Les étiologies des méningites sont surtout infectieuses. Les causes non infectieuses, sont souvent de diagnostic difficile et incertain, tel est le cas de la maladie de Behçet. Nous rapportons deux observations de patients ayant présenté des épisodes récurrents de méningite. Dans un premier temps, la suspicion d'une étiologie infectieuse a conduit à introduire un traitement anti-infectieux probabiliste. La découverte à posteriori d'une aphtose bipolaire a permis de poser le diagnostic de maladie de Behçet. Une corticothérapie s'est révélée efficace.

    Les jumeaux conjoints sont considérés comme étant une complication rare et grave des grossesses monozygotes. Le diagnostic anténatal permet de définir avec précision les structures communes, de rechercher une anomalie congénitale associée, d'organiser l´accouchement et la prise en charge néonatale. Nous présentons un cas rare de jumeaux conjoints dont la fusion se situait au niveau d'une omphalocèle commune associée à une extrophie cloacale, ambiguïté sexuelle et pieds bots. Le diagnostic a été méconnu pendant la grossesse, ce qui a engendré une dystocie lors de l'accouchement. L'issue a été fatale malgré une tentative de séparation et des mesures de réanimation. Ce cas illustre la difficulté liée d'une part à la méconnaissance du diagnostic, d'autre part au caractère urgent de la césarienne et de la séparation chirurgicale. PMID:25170387

    Résumé La fistule artério-urétérale (FAU), qui survient immédiatement après une cystectomie, est une complication exceptionnelle et grave. De nos jours, seulement quelques cas sporadiques ont été signalés dans la littérature. Elle se manifeste presque exclusivement par une hématurie brutale, massive et intermittente pouvant être à l’origine d’une instabilité hémodynamique menaçant le pronostic vital du patient à court terme. Son diagnostic doit être fait sans retard. Les explorations radiologiques restent peu spécifiques et peu sensibles et se basent essentiellement sur l’artériographie. Le traitement est non codifié selon l’état général du patient et surtout de la nature de la fistule. Nous décrivons un cas de FAU faisant suite à une pelvectomie antérieure et nous discuterons à l’aide d’une revue de la littérature les aspects diagnostiques, thérapeutiques et pronostiques de cette complication.

    L'hyperparathyroïdie primaire (HPP) est une affection fréquente, aujourd'hui découverte fortuitement dans 75 à 80% des cas par un dosage systématique de la calcémie biologique. Le diagnostic de cette affection se base sur la mise en évidence concomitante d'une calcémie élevée, d'un taux de parathormone (PTH) élevé (80% des cas) ou normal (20% des cas), et d'une calciurie supérieure à 150 mg/24 heures. Les manifestations squelettiques graves (ostéite fibrokystique, tumeurs brunes, fractures pathologiques) sont rares de nos jours. Les tumeurs brunes constituent un mode de révélation rare de l'hyperparathyroïdie primaire et leur localisation au niveau des maxillaires est exceptionnelle. Nous rapportons ici la longue histoire de la maladie d'un homme de 42 ans atteint d'une hyperparathyroïdie primitive découverte devant une tuméfaction jugale, une hypercalcémie majeure à 3.92 mmol/l et une tumeur brune maxillaire et nous soulignant le rôle du bilan biologique raisonné et de son interprétation en tant que révélateur diagnostique pour orienter le clinicien vers l'hyperparathyroïdie primaire.

    2008-02-12

    The in-medium properties of charm mesons ($D$ and $\\bar D$) in a hot and dense matter are studied. A self-consistent coupled-channel approach is driven by a broken SU(4) s-wave Tomozawa-Weinberg interaction supplemented by an attractive isoscalar-scalar term. As medium effects, we include Pauli blocking, baryon mean-field bindings, and $\\pi$ and open-charm meson self-energies. The dynamically generated $\\tilde\\Lambda_c$ and $\\tilde\\Sigma_c$ resonances in the $DN$ sector remain close to their free space position but acquire large widths. The resultant $D$ meson spectral function, which shows a single pronounced quasiparticle peak close to the free mass that broadens with increasing density, also has a long low energy tail associated with smeared $\\tilde\\Lambda_c N^{-1}$, $\\tilde\\Sigma_c N^{-1}$ configurations. The low-density approximation for the $\\bar D N$ is questionable already at subsaturation densities. We touch upon the implication of our study for $J/\\Psi$ suppression at FAIR.

    An overview about the future international Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research -FAIR- is given, with especial emphasis on the astrophysical aspects of the NUSTAR (NUclear StrucTure, Astrophysics and Reactions) project. Many types of astrophysically relevant experiments will be performed at NUSTAR. A common tool in all of them will be the large acceptance superconducting in-flight fragment separator (Super-FRS). Rare isotopes of all elements up to Uranium will be produced and spatially separated, thus allowing for the study of very short-lived nuclei. At the low energy branch of the SuperFRS the DESPEC-setup will allow for precise {beta}-decay measurements, including neutron emission probabilities, and for the study of the nuclear structure of very exotic species. High precision Penning trap mass measurements will be carried out with the MATS setup installed at the low-energy branch. Large scale mass measurements will be performed using a complex of storage and cooler rings, the NESR and the CR. In summary, a vast amount of new data far off stability will become available. This will be particularly interesting for the study of explosive nucleosynthesis events, like the rapid neutron capture and the rapid proton capture processes. At the high-energy branch of the SuperFRS, the R{sup 3}B setup will provide access to a large variety of kinematically complete measurements at relativistic energies, such as heavy ion induced electromagnetic excitation, knockout and breakup reactions or light-ion (in)elastic scattering in inverse kinematics. This will enable e.g. to study Gamow-Teller strengths or to determine astrophysical S-factors on exotic nuclei.

  5. Restauration adaptative des contours par une approche inspiree de la prediction des performances

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Rousseau, Kami

    En teledetection, les cartes de contours peuvent servir, entre autres choses, a la restitution geometrique, a la recherche d'elements lineaires, ainsi qu'a la segmentation. La creation de ces cartes est faite relativement tot dans la chaine de traitements d'une image. Pour assurer la qualite des operations subsequentes, il faut veiller a obtenir une carte de contours precise. Notre problematique est de savoir s'il est possible de diminuer la perte de temps liee au choix d'algorithme et de parametre en corrigeant automatiquement la carte de contours. Nous concentrerons donc nos efforts sur le developpement d'une methode de detection/restauration de contours adaptative. Notre methode s'inspire d'une technique de prediction des performances d'algorithmes de bas niveau. Elle consiste a integrer un traitement par reseau de neurones a une methode " classique " de detection de contours. Plus precisement, nous proposons de combiner la carte de performances avec la carte de gradient pour permettre des decisions plus exactes. La presente etude a permis de developper un logiciel comprenant un reseau de neurones entraine pour predire la presence de contours. Ce reseau de neurones permet d'ameliorer les decisions de detecteurs de contours, en reduisant le nombre de pixels de fausses alarmes et de contours manques. La premiere etape de ce travail consiste en une methode d'evaluation de performance pour les cartes de contours. Une fois ce choix effectue, il devient possible de comparer les cartes entre elles. Il est donc plus aise de determiner, pour chaque image, la meilleure detection de contours. La revue de la litterature realisee simultanement a permis de faire un choix d'un groupe d'indicateurs prometteurs pour la restauration de contours. Ces derniers ont servi a la calibration et a l'entrainement d'un reseau de neurones pour modeliser les contours. Par la suite, l'information fournie par ce reseau a ete combinee par multiplication arithmetique avec les cartes d'amplitudes de detecteurs " classiques " afin de fournir de nouvelles cartes d'amplitude du gradient. Le seuillage de ces contours donne des cartes de contours " optimisees ". Sur les images aeroportees du jeu de donnees South Florida, la mediane des mesures-F de la pour l'algorithme de Sobel passe de 51,3 % avant la fusion a 56,4 % apres. La mediane des mesures-F pour l'algorithme de Kirsch ameliore est de 56,3 % et celle de Frei-Chen ameliore est de 56,3 %. Pour l'algorithme de Sobel avec seuillage adaptatif, la mesure-F mediane est de 52,3 % avant fusion et de 57,2 % apres fusion. En guise de comparaison, la mesure-F mediane pour le detecteur de Moon, mathematiquement optimal pour contours de type " rampe ", est de 53,3 % et celle de l'algorithme de Canny, est de 61,1 %. L'applicabilite de notre algorithme se limite aux images qui, apres filtrage, ont un rapport signal sur bruit superieur ou egal a 20. Sur les photos au sol du jeu de donnees de South Florida, les resultats sont comparables a ceux obtenus sur les images aeroportees. Par contre, sur le jeu de donnees de Berkeley, les resultats n'ont pas ete concluants. Sur une imagette IKONOS du campus de l'Universite de Sherbrooke, pour l'algorithme de Sobel, la mesure-F est de 45,7 % +/-0,9 % avant la fusion et de 50,8 % apres. Sur une imagette IKONOS de l'Agence Spatiale Canadienne, pour l'algorithme de Sobel avec seuillage adaptatif, la mesure-F est de 35,4 % +/-0,9 % avant la fusion et de 42,2 % apres. Sur cette meme image, l'algorithme de Argyle (Canny sans post-traitement) a une mesure-F de 35,1 % +/-0,9 % avant fusion et de 39,5 % apres. Nos travaux ont permis d'ameliorer la banque d'indicateurs de Chalmond, rendant possible le pretraitement avant le seuillage de la carte de gradient. A chaque etape, nous proposons un choix de parametres permettant d'utiliser efficacement la methode proposee. Les contours corriges sont plus fins, plus complets et mieux localises que les contours originaux. Une etude de sensibilite a ete effectuee et permet de mieux comprendre la contributio

    Understanding the interplay of the nuclear interaction with polarized protons and the electromagnetic interaction with polarized electrons in polarized atoms is crucial to progress towards the PAX goal to eventually produce stored polarized antiproton beams at FAIR. Presently, there exist two competing theoretical scenarios: one with substantial spin filtering of (anti)protons by atomic electrons, and a second one suggesting a self-cancellation of the electron contribution to spin filtering. After a brief review of the PAX physics case for polarized antiprotons at FAIR, a detailed discussion of future investigations, including spin-filtering experiments at COSY-Juelich and at the AD of CERN is presented.

    In light of the uncertainties about valuation highlighted by the 2007-2008 market turbulence, this paper provides an empirical examination of the potential procyclicality that fair value accounting (FVA) could introduce in bank balance sheets. The paper finds that, while weaknesses in the FVA methodology may introduce unintended procyclicality, it is still the preferred framework for financial institutions. It concludes that

    Résumé Le léiomyome de l’urètre est une tumeur bénigne rare constituée de tissus musculaires lisses. Cette tumeur se traduit par une variété de signes cliniques ; le recours à l’histologie est donc nécessaire pour poser le diagnostic. Le traitement de choix est l’exérèse chirurgicale. Aucun cas de dégénérescence maligne n’a été signalé jusqu’à présent, mais une récidive locale est possible en cas d’exérèse incomplète. Les auteurs font état d’un nouveau cas de léiomyome intéressant à la fois le col vésical et l’urètre, et se traduisant par la dysurie chez une patiente ; ils proposent également une revue de la littérature concernant cette pathologie.

    Résumé Introduction : Le carcinome urothélial plasmocytoïde est une variante histologique rare du carcinome urothélial. Seule une centaine de cas ont été décrits dans la littérature. Dans cette étude, nous faisons état de deux nouvelles observations. En combinant nos résultats à ceux des différentes séries décrites dans la littérature, nous tentons de définir les caractéristiques cliniques et pathologiques ainsi que l’approche thérapeutique de cette pathologie. Observations : Deux nouveaux cas de carcinome urothélial plasmocytoïde ont été diagnostiqués et pris en charge dans notre établissement. Les 2 patients étaient des hommes de 76 ans en moyenne. L’hématurie était le principal symptôme. Les deux patients ont subi une résection transurétrale de la vessie. Le stade tumoral au moment du diagnostic était avancé dans les deux cas (respectivement T3N0M0 et T3N1M0). Les deux patients ont été traités par cystoprostatectomie. L’analyse histologique de la pièce opératoire, complétée par une étude immunohistochimique, a confirmé le diagnostic de carcinome urothélial plasmocytoïde. Le premier patient est décédé un mois plus tard des suites d’une embolie pulmonaire. Le deuxième patient est décédé au bout de deux mois après avoir reçu deux cycles de chimiothérapie adjuvante. Les données recueillies sur les différentes séries décrites dans la littérature vont dans le même sens que nos données, à savoir un stade avancé au moment du diagnostic et un pronostic sombre. Conclusion : Le carcinome urothélial plasmocytoïde est une variante histologique rare et agressive du carcinome urothélial. Le diagnostic se fait souvent à un stade avancé, et le pronostic est peu encourageant. Le traitement repose le plus souvent sur une cystectomie, suivie d’une chimiothérapie adjuvante à base de cisplatine. L’intérêt d’une chimiothérapie néo-adjuvante n’a pas encore été établi.

    The isoscaling phenomenon was first observed in nuclear multifragmentation experiments and has become a hot topic as it could provide a probe of the nuclear equation of state to understand nuclear matter at extreme condition of isospin such as in neutron stars. The present work studies isoscaling using 1) classical molecular dynamics simulations, 2) percolation and 3) probabilistic arguments, and determines that isoscaling is a general phenomenon that can exist independent of the nuclear reaction, and it is expected to occur in disassemblying systems with no more than fair sampling.

    Le ganglioneurome est une tumeur nerveuse bénigne rare, d'origine neuroectodermique et de localisation rétropéritonéale fréquente. Nous rapportons l'observation d'un patient de 55 ans dont la tumeur est révélée fortuitement sur une échographie abdominale demandée dans le cadre d'une cytolyse hépatique secondaire à une hépatite virale C. Le patient est opéré après la réalisation d'un scanner abdominal et d'un bilan hormonal. L'examen anatomopathologique de la pièce opératoire est en faveur d'un ganglioneurome. Devant une volumineuse masse rétropéritonéale avec état général conservé, on doit envisager le diagnostic de ganglioneurome car l'exérèse chirurgicale complète permet une guérison sans récidive. Préalablement, l'ensemble des autres diagnostics différentiels doit être éliminé. PMID:25170368

    The purpose of this research was to examine the knowledge, skills and attitudes of elementary school teachers who have led their students to successful experiences in science fairs. Six research questions guided the study: (1) What knowledge, skills and attitudes do the five selected elementary school teachers draw upon to enable their students to have a successful science fair experience? (2) How do the five selected elementary school teachers enable their students to have a successful science fair experience? (3) Why are the five selected elementary school teachers capable of enabling their students to have a successful science fair experience? (4) How do the knowledge, skills and attitudes of the five selected elementary school teachers compare to the knowledge, skills and attitudes that the National Science Education Standards (National Research Council, 1996) recommend for science teachers? (5) What are the commonalities in the knowledge, skills and attitudes among the five selected elementary school teachers who enable their students to have a successful science fair experience? (6) What are the differences in the knowledge, skills and attitudes among the five selected elementary school teachers who enable their students to have a successful science fair experience? A qualitative multiple-case research design was used to focus on five elementary school teachers who have a history of leading their students to successful experiences in science fairs. Data sources included classroom observations, formal and informal interviews, focus groups, science fair visitations and perusal of documents related to the teachers' science fair preparation of their students. In addition, questionnaires were given to the teachers and their students assessing their views about science and science fairs. A cross-case analysis revealed that the teachers had become knowledgeable about science fairs and science by non-traditional means including attending staff development workshops, traveling and reading about science and science fairs. Their practice matched well with the National Science Education Standards (National Research Council, 1996). All of the teachers displayed positive attitudes toward science and science fairs. There appeared to be a relationship between completing a science fair project at school and very positive attitudes toward science fairs and science. The five teachers had more commonalities than differences in their knowledge base, their skills and their attitudes.

    A wind tunnel test was conducted to study the aerodynamics of helicopter hub and pylon fairings. The test was conducted in the 7-by 10 Foot Subsonic Wind Tunnel (Number 2) at Ames Research Center using a 1/5-scale XH-59A fuselage model. The primary focus of the test was on the rotor hub fairing and pylon mutual interference drag. Parametric studies of pylon and hub fairing geometry were also conducted. This report presents the major findings of the test as well as tabulated force and moment data, flow visualization photographs, and graphical presentations of the drag data. The test results indicate that substantial drag reduction can be attained through the use of a cambered hub fairing with circular arc upper surface and flat lower surface. Furthermore, a considerable portion of the overall drag reduction is attributed to the reduction in the hub-on-pylon interference drag. It is also observed that the lower surface curvature of the fairing has a strong influence on the hub fairing and on pylon interference drag. However, the drag reduction benefit that was obtained by using the cambered hub fairing with a flat lower surface was adversely affected by the clearance between the hub fairing and the pylon.

  16. Landing gear noise control using perforated fairings

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Boorsma, K.; Zhang, X.; Molin, N.

    2010-05-01

    Landing gears of commercial aircraft make an important contribution to total aircraft noise in the approach configuration. Using fairings to shield components from high speed impingement reduces noise. Furthermore, perforating these fairings has been confirmed by flight tests to further enable noise reduction. Following an earlier fundamental study of the application of perforated fairings, a study has been performed to investigate and optimize the benefits of bleeding air through landing gear fairings. By means of wind tunnel tests, an aerodynamic and acoustic survey has been performed on a simplified generic main landing gear to explore the influence of (perforated) fairings on the lower part of the gear. The results show that for this specific case, the application of impermeable fairings reduces noise in the mid- and high frequency range by shielding sharp edged components from high velocity impingement. However, below 1 kHz the noise is shown to increase significantly. Application of the perforations is shown to diminish this low frequency increase whilst maintaining the reduction in the mid- and high frequency range. The aerodynamic and acoustic measurements point in the direction of the separated flow of the fairings interacting with the downstream gear components responsible for the low frequency noise increase. Bleeding of the air through the fairings reduces the large scale turbulence in the proximity of these components and hence diminishes the low frequency noise increase.

    L'artérite de Takayasu ou maladie de Takayasu (MT) et la polyarthrite rhumatoïde (PR) et sont deux maladies inflammatoires chroniques et leur association a été rapportée dans la littérature à travers quelques observations de cas sporadiques. Nous rapportons une nouvelle observation d'une telle association. Une patiente âgée de 44 ans, diagnostiquée avec une polyarthrite rhumatoïde à facteur rhumatoïde positif, qui a développé des céphalées avec des vertiges de caractère permanent. L'examen révélait un pouls radial et huméral abolis à droite, un souffle carotidien bilatéral et une tension artérielle imprenable à droite. L'artériographie a confirmé la présence d'une atteinte de l'arc aortique type MT. Le diagnostic d'une maladie de Takayasu associée à une polyarthrite rhumatoïde était retenu. La patiente était traitée par une corticothérapie (prednisone à la dose de 0,5 mg/kg par jour) et un traitement de fond par Méthotrexate avec une bonne réponse initiale. A travers notre observation et une revue de la littérature, les caractéristiques épidémiologiques, étiopathogéniques, cliniques, thérapeutiques et évolutives de cette association seront discutées.

    In India, the idea of beauty is often associated with fairness. Fairness creams abound in the market, and advertisements glorify fair skin. An analysis of television advertisements of fairness products shows how they connect fairness with achieving other personal goals, such as marriage, success, empowerment, job opportunities, and confidence.

  1. Fair share on high performance computing systems : what does fair really mean?

    SciTech Connect

    Clearwater, Scott Harvey (Woodside, CA); Kleban, Stephen David

    2003-03-01

    We report on a performance evaluation of a Fair Share system at the ASCI Blue Mountain supercomputer cluster. We study the impacts of share allocation under Fair Share on wait times and expansion factor. We also measure the Service Ratio, a typical figure of merit for Fair Share systems, with respect to a number of job parameters. We conclude that Fair Share does little to alter important performance metrics such as expansion factor. This leads to the question of what Fair Share means on cluster machines. The essential difference between Fair Share on a uni-processor and a cluster is that the workload on a cluster is not fungible in space or time. We find that cluster machines must be highly utilized and support checkpointing in order for Fair Share to function more closely to the spirit in which it was originally developed.

    The field of nanomaterials is of widespread interest since the beginning of the nineties. We describe several methods of synthesis of nanophased materials and of nanostructured materials. The problems related to the characterization of nanosized particles and to the influence of the synthesis method on their properties are illustrated first from a comparison of nanometric titanoferrites synthesized by two different methods, then by a phase transformation from face-centered cubic to hexagonal which takes place in Ni at a nanometer crystallite size and finally by the Rietveld analysis of phases found in TiO2 powders ground for short times. Depuis le début des années 90, les recherches sur les nanomatériaux ont connu un essor considérable. Nous décrivons ici différentes méthodes de synthèse de nanoparticules et de matériaux nanostructurés. Les problèmes liés à la caractérisation des particules nanométriques et à l'influence de la méthode de synthèse sur les propriétés sont illustrés par la comparaison de ferrites de titane nanométriques élaborés par deux méthodes différentes, par l'étude d'une transition Ni hexagonal - Ni cubique faces centrées liée à la taille et par la quantification par la méthode de Rietveld des phases présentes dans des poudres de TiO2 broyées.

  7. Modeling for fairness: A Rawlsian approach.

    PubMed

    Diekmann, Sven; Zwart, Sjoerd D

    2014-06-01

    In this paper we introduce the overlapping design consensus for the construction of models in design and the related value judgments. The overlapping design consensus is inspired by Rawls' overlapping consensus. The overlapping design consensus is a well-informed, mutual agreement among all stakeholders based on fairness. Fairness is respected if all stakeholders' interests are given due and equal attention. For reaching such fair agreement, we apply Rawls' original position and reflective equilibrium to modeling. We argue that by striving for the original position, stakeholders expel invalid arguments, hierarchies, unwarranted beliefs, and bargaining effects from influencing the consensus. The reflective equilibrium requires that stakeholders' beliefs cohere with the final agreement and its justification. Therefore, the overlapping design consensus is not only an agreement to decisions, as most other stakeholder approaches, it is also an agreement to their justification and that this justification is consistent with each stakeholders' beliefs. For supporting fairness, we argue that fairness qualifies as a maxim in modeling. We furthermore distinguish values embedded in a model from values that are implied by its context of application. Finally, we conclude that for reaching an overlapping design consensus communication about properties of and values related to a model is required. PMID:25051870

  10. Getting a Fair Share: Attitudes and Perceptions of Biobank Stakeholders Concerning the Fairness of Sample Sharing.

    PubMed

    2014-11-25

    Biobanks are essential tools for furthering a broad range of medical research areas. However, despite the plethora of national and international laws and guidelines which apply to them, the access and sharing policies of biobanks are only sparsely addressed by regulatory bodies. The 'give and take' process of biosample sharing is largely left up to biobank stakeholders themselves to oversee; it is therefore both in stakeholders' power, and in their interest, to ensure that sample accessibility is fair. This is an important step in motivating researchers to collaborate and pool samples, and is crucial to fostering trust in the absence of universally accepted standard practices. To date, little attention has been paid to how fairness considerations affect scientific material sharing, and no empirical research has been carried out to determine the role that fairness plays in collaborative studies. In order to begin to gain understanding in this area, we interviewed 36 biobank stakeholders currently working in Switzerland, focusing on their perceptions of current and optimal fair sharing practices. Our findings reveal that fairness is an important feature of exchange situations for these stakeholders, and that they have well-formed notions about the practical elements of fair sample access, although ideas about the concept of fairness itself are vague. In order to support efforts to network biobanks, attention should be paid to this issue to reassure all involved that they are getting a fair share in their cooperative efforts. PMID:25425240

    NSDL National Science Digital Library

    "Today your teacher announced that your school is going to have a science fair and students are responsible for exhibiting their projects. What do you feel? Enthusiastic? Despondent? Dreadful? Fearful? Excited?" This statement opens the Super Science Fair Projects site. Actually, whether student or parent, science fair projects, while great ways to get students actively involved in learning the scientific method and problem solving, can be tough assignments. This site may help you with one of the hardest parts: coming up with an idea. The site does a great job of walking the visitor through the steps needed to plan and implement a project, from Choosing a Topic, the Scientific Method, and writing the Project Report. There are even tips on displaying your project, rehearsing, winning over judges, and what to expect the day of the fair. This is definitely a great tool to tap into when planning a science fair project.

    Health professionals are being asked with increasing frequency to participate in, or to conduct, health fairs. There is, however, a lack of published practical advice available to persons undertaking such an event for the first time. Based upon my experience in this area, participants are advised to (a) clearly define in advance the objectives to be achieved by this activity, (b) give careful attention to the timing, location, and financing of the event, (c) encourage the active participation in the event of both professionals and lay persons in the community, (d) pay particular attention to publicizing the event, since the fair's success will be directly related to visitor attendance, and (e) evaluate the event to determine whether the sponsors' objective were met, whether additional health fairs should be conducted, and what changes should be made when similar events are held in the future.

    We propose a synthesis method to design a 90° bent fair circular waveguide TE01 mode transition based on the non-uniform rational B-spline technique. The transition by this method has advantages of small geometry, high transmission with wide band and high profile fairness. An example of design of such a transition is presented. The simulation shows that the transition exhibits a transmission as high as 99.3% at the central frequency 35 GHz and has a bandwidth of 16.7% when keeping the transmission over 95%. Furthermore, the profile is extremely fair, which meets the requirements to decrease the geometry errors between actual device and its design, to reduce the machining difficulty in the machining process. The hot test data indicate that good transmission of the TE01 mode is obtained. PMID:25638106

  20. Fair process: managing in the knowledge economy.

    PubMed

    Kim, W C; Mauborgne, R

    1997-01-01

    Unlike the traditional factors of production--land, labor, and capital--knowledge is a resource that can't be forced out of people. But creating and sharing knowledge is essential to fostering innovation, the key challenge of the knowledge-based economy. To create a climate in which employees volunteer their creativity and expertise, managers need to look beyond the traditional tools at their disposal. They need to build trust. The authors have studied the links between trust, idea sharing, and corporate performance for more than a decade. They have explored the question of why managers of local subsidiaries so often fail to share information with executives at headquarters. They have studied the dynamics of idea sharing in product development teams, joint ventures, supplier partnerships, and corporate transformations. They offer an explanation for why people resist change even when it would benefit them directly. In every case, the decisive factor was what the authors call fair process--fairness in the way a company makes and executes decisions. The elements of fair process are simple: Engage people's input in decisions that directly affect them. Explain why decisions are made the way they are. Make clear what will be expected of employees after the changes are made. Fair process may sound like a soft issue, but it is crucial to building trust and unlocking ideas. Without it, people are apt to withhold their full cooperation and their creativity. The results are costly: ideas that never see daylight and initiatives that are never seized. PMID:10168337

    We present a fair and optimistic quantum-contract-signing protocol between two clients that requires no communication with the third trusted party during the exchange phase. We discuss its fairness and show that it is possible to design such a protocol for which the probability of a dishonest client to cheat becomes negligible and scales as N{sup -1/2}, where N is the number of messages exchanged between the clients. Our protocol is not based on the exchange of signed messages: Its fairness is based on the laws of quantum mechanics. Thus, it is abuse free, and the clients do not have to generate new keys for each message during the exchange phase. We discuss a real-life scenario when measurement errors and qubit-state corruption due to noisy channels and imperfect quantum memories occur and argue that for a real, good-enough measurement apparatus, transmission channels, and quantum memories, our protocol would still be fair. Apart from stable quantum memories, the other segments of our protocol could be implemented by today's technology, as they require in essence the same type of apparatus as the one needed for the Bennett-Brassard 1984 (BB84) cryptographic protocol. Finally, we briefly discuss two alternative versions of the protocol, one that uses only two states [based on the Bennett 1992 (B92) protocol] and the other that uses entangled pairs, and show that it is possible to generalize our protocol to an arbitrary number of clients.

    A study was done in the NASA 14- by 22-Foot Wind Tunnel at Langley Research Center on the parasite drag of different helicopter rotor hub fairings and pylons. Parametric studies of hub-fairing camber and diameter were conducted. The effect of hub fairing/pylon clearance on hub fairing/pylon mutual interference drag was examined in detail. Force and moment data are presented in tabular and graphical forms. The results indicate that hub fairings with a circular-arc upper surface and a flat lower surface yield maximum hub drag reduction; and clearance between the hub fairing and pylon induces high mutual-interference drag and diminishes the drag-reduction benefit obtained using a hub fairing with a flat lower surface. Test data show that symmetrical hub fairings with circular-arc surfaces generate 74 percent more interference drag than do cambered hub fairings with flat lower surfaces, at moderate negative angle of attack.

Nous rapportons deux observations d'un carcinome mucineux primitif de la face et de la région axillaire, chez deux patients âgés de 60 ans. L’étude histologique montrait une prolifération tumorale dermohypodermique, faite de cellules organisées en cordons, en amas et en massif cribriformes, au sein d'une substance mucoïde. En immunohistochimie les cellules tumorales exprimaient la cytokératine 7, l'EMA et les récepteurs hormonaux. L'actine musculaire lisse a bien marqué les cellules myoépithéliales au niveau de la composante in situ dans un seul cas. Le carcinome mucineux primitif cutané est difficile à différencier d'une métastase mammaire ou digestive. La mise en évidence de carcinome in situ ou de cellules myoépithéliale est en faveur de l'origine cutanée primitive. C'est une tumeur à croissance lente, avec des métastases exceptionnelles. Le traitement est chirurgical et le taux de récidive est très élevé. Et à travers ces deux observations, les auteurs mettent en relief les principaux aspects cliniques, histologiques, thérapeutiques de cette entité avec une revue de la littérature. PMID:25574316

    Fair bandwidth sharing at routers has several advantages, includingprotection of well-behaved flows and possible simplification of endto-end congestion control mechanisms. Traditional mechanisms to achievefair sharing (e.g., Weighted Fair Queueing, Flow Random Early Discard)require per-flow state to determine which packets to drop under congestion,and therefore are complex to implement at the interior of a high-speednetwork.

    Le dermatofibrosarcome (DFS) est une tumeur fibreuse de la peau, de croissance lente, à très haut risque de récidive locale, mais à potentiel métastatique faible. A partir d'une étude rétrospective étalée sur une période de 5 ans (décembre 2008 - décembre 2013), nous avons analysé les caractéristiques épidémiologiques et cliniques, le délai de diagnostic, le type de thérapeutique et le devenir de 32 patients présentant des tumeurs de Darier et Ferrand histologiquement prouvées. Parmi les 32 patients, 10 se sont présentés initialement au service pour une récidive tumorale. Une discrète prédominance masculine a été notée. Les DFS touchent préférentiellement l'adulte jeune. Le délai diagnostique observé est en moyenne de 4 ans. Le tronc est la localisation préférentielle (60%), suivi par les extrémités proximales (30%). Les 32 patients ont été traités par exérèse chirurgicale avec une marge de 5cm en surface, emportant en profondeur une barrière anatomique saine. La couverture de la perte de substance (PDS) a été réalisée après confirmation anatomopathologique du caractère carcinologique de l'exérèse, et a fait appel à différents moyens allant de la greffe cutanée aux lambeaux musculo –cutanés libres. L’évolution a été marquée par la survenue d'une récidive tumorale chez 8 patients (3 cas parmi les tumeurs vues en première intention et 5 cas parmi les tumeurs vues en récidive) et les résultats ont été jugés satisfaisants sur le plan esthétique et fonctionnel. Le DFS de Darier et Ferrand est une tumeur dont le pronostic et le risque évolutif sont principalement liés au délai diagnostic et la qualité de la première exérèse. Le diagnostic tardif, rend difficile la chirurgie d'exérèse et de reconstruction Les possibilités de guérison en cas de chirurgie primaire bien conduite sont significativement supérieures à celles d'une chirurgie de rattrapage. L'amélioration du pronostic passe par une prise en charge multidisciplinaire précoce et codifiée d'où l'intérêt de la sensibilisation et de l'information du médecin généraliste pour le diagnostic précoce et l'orientation correcte de ces malades vers des centres spécialisés.

    The mathematical theory of capillary surfaces has developed steadily over the centuries, but it was not until the last few decades that new technologies have put a more urgent demand on a substantially more qualitative and quantitative understanding of phenomena relating to capillarity in general. So far, the new theory development successfully predicts the behavior of capillary surfaces for special cases. However, an efficient quantitative mathematical prediction of capillary phenomena related to the shape and stability of geometrically complex equilibrium capillary surfaces remains a significant challenge. As one of many numerical tools, the open-source Surface Evolver (SE) algorithm has played an important role over the last two decades. The current effort was undertaken to provide a front-end to enhance the accessibility of SE for the purposes of design and analysis. Like SE, the new code is open-source and will remain under development for the foreseeable future. The ultimate goal of the current Surface Evolver Fluid Interface Tool (SEFIT) development is to build a fully integrated front-end with a set of graphical user interface (GUI) elements. Such a front-end enables the access to functionalities that are developed along with the GUIs to deal with pre-processing, convergence computation operation, and post-processing. In other words, SE-FIT is not just a GUI front-end, but an integrated environment that can perform sophisticated computational tasks, e.g. importing industry standard file formats and employing parameter sweep functions, which are both lacking in SE, and require minimal interaction by the user. These functions are created using a mixture of Visual Basic and the SE script language. These form the foundation for a high-performance front-end that substantially simplifies use without sacrificing the proven capabilities of SE. The real power of SE-FIT lies in its automated pre-processing, pre-defined geometries, convergence computation operation, computational diagnostic tools, and crash-handling capabilities to sustain extensive computations. SE-FIT performance is enabled by its so-called file-layer mechanism. During the early stages of SE-FIT development, it became necessary to modify the original SE code to enable capabilities required for an enhanced and synchronized communication. To this end, a file-layer was created that serves as a command buffer to ensure a continuous and sequential execution of commands sent from the front-end to SE. It also establishes a proper means for handling crashes. The file layer logs input commands and SE output; it also supports user interruption requests, back and forward operation (i.e. undo and redo), and others. It especially enables the batch mode computation of a series of equilibrium surfaces and the searching of critical parameter values in studying the stability of capillary surfaces. In this way, the modified SE significantly extends the capabilities of the original SE.

  17. Editorial: Bowel preparation: is fair good enough?

    PubMed

    Liang, Peter S; Dominitz, Jason A

    2014-11-01

    The effectiveness of colonoscopy in reducing colorectal cancer incidence and mortality has been shown to be associated with an endoscopist's adenoma detection rate, although the ability to detect adenomas depends, in part, on the quality of bowel preparation. Many endoscopists routinely recommend shorter examination intervals for colonoscopies with a fair or intermediate-quality bowel preparation, assuming that the preparation is insufficient for the purpose of colorectal cancer screening. In this issue, Clark et al. performed a systematic review and meta-analysis to assess the adequacy of a fair-quality bowel preparation, finding no difference in the adenoma detection rate of colonoscopies with an intermediate-quality bowel preparation relative to those with a high-quality preparation. Although this finding has potentially significant implications for patient care and healthcare costs, the limitations of the adenoma detection rate as a performance measure and variability in the application of bowel preparation ratings are important issues that must be considered.

    2007-11-07

    The science goals underlying the future international Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research--FAIR--[1] that is being realized in Darmstadt span a broad range of research activities on the structure of matter. One component of this facility is directed towards studies of hadronic matter at the sub-nuclear level with beams of antiprotons. These studies focus on two key aspects: confinement of quarks and the generation of the hadron masses. These goals will be pursued by performing precision measurements of charged and neutral decay products from antiproton-proton annihilation in the charmonium mass region. In this talk I present some of the issues connected to FAIR in which the groups in Cracow and Juelich are extending and intensifying our cooperation.

  19. Evolution of responses to (un)fairness.

    PubMed

    Brosnan, Sarah F; de Waal, Frans B M

    2014-10-17

    The human sense of fairness is an evolutionary puzzle. To study this, we can look to other species, in which this can be translated empirically into responses to reward distribution. Passive and active protest against receiving less than a partner for the same task is widespread in species that cooperate outside kinship and mating bonds. There is less evidence that nonhuman species seek to equalize outcomes to their own detriment, yet the latter has been documented in our closest relatives, the apes. This reaction probably reflects an attempt to forestall partner dissatisfaction with obtained outcomes and its negative impact on future cooperation. We hypothesize that it is the evolution of this response that allowed the development of a complete sense of fairness in humans, which aims not at equality for its own sake but for the sake of continued cooperation.

  7. Medical education research: is participation fair?

    PubMed

    Walsh, Kieran

    2014-11-01

    Medical researchers and ethicists emphasise the importance of equity, fairness and justice in general medical research participation. No individual or group should be over-represented or under-represented in research-there should be fair participation. Thus far little thought has been given to fair participation in medical education research. There is no evidence based answer as to whether vulnerable groups are ever exploited in medical education research, or whether other individuals or groups are overlooked. However the heavy reliance on undergraduate learners as subjects for medical education research creates two key threats to the fairness of that research. First, there is a risk that undergraduate learners, as a potentially vulnerable population, may be exploited in research settings. Often the faculty carrying out medical education research will be the same faculty that are responsible for delivering medical education and assessing medical students' competencies. It is possible as a result that medical students might feel pressured to participate in research. Second, there is a risk that other important groups of learners may be inadequately represented. Much medical education research is carried out on undergraduates and relatively little on those who have been doing CPD for many years. Thus much of our research concentrates on only a small proportion of medical learning. The relatively small amount of research carried out on those doing continuing professional development (CPD) is probably because of the difficulties of recruiting and retaining this group of learners in research programmes. Both risks threaten the integrity and usefulness of the resulting research product. Unfair participation in medical education research programmes could have serious repercussions for learners at all levels. PMID:24846349

  9. Interactivity vs. fairness in networked linux systems

    SciTech Connect

    Wu, Wenji; Crawford, Matt; /Fermilab; ,

    2007-01-01

    In general, the Linux 2.6 scheduler can ensure fairness and provide excellent interactive performance at the same time. However, our experiments and mathematical analysis have shown that the current Linux interactivity mechanism tends to incorrectly categorize non-interactive network applications as interactive, which can lead to serious fairness or starvation issues. In the extreme, a single process can unjustifiably obtain up to 95% of the CPU! The root cause is due to the facts that: (1) network packets arrive at the receiver independently and discretely, and the 'relatively fast' non-interactive network process might frequently sleep to wait for packet arrival. Though each sleep lasts for a very short period of time, the wait-for-packet sleeps occur so frequently that they lead to interactive status for the process. (2) The current Linux interactivity mechanism provides the possibility that a non-interactive network process could receive a high CPU share, and at the same time be incorrectly categorized as 'interactive.' In this paper, we propose and test a possible solution to address the interactivity vs. fairness problems. Experiment results have proved the effectiveness of the proposed solution.

    We discuss gateway queueing algorithms and their role in controlling congestion in datagram networks. A fair queueing algorithm, based on an earlier suggestion by Nagle, is proposed. Analysis and simulations are used to compare this algorithm to other congestion control schemes. We find that fair queueing provides several important advantages over the usual first-come-first-serve queueing algorithm: fair allocation of bandwidth,

    Cores in a chip-multiprocessor (CMP) system share multiple hardware resources in the memory subsystem. If resource sharing is unfair, some applications can be delayed significantly while others are unfairly prioritized. Previous research proposed separate fairness mechanisms in each individual resource. Such resource-based fairness mechanisms implemented independently in each resource can make contradictory decisions, leading to low fairness and loss of

    L'utérus bicorne bicervical perméable est une malformation utérine assez rare et son diagnostic est souvent posé fortuitement au cours d'un examen fait pour autre but. Il est asymptomatique et au cours d'une grossesse, cette malformation peut passer inaperçue si aucune surveillance prénatale n'a été faite. Nous rapportons un cas d'utérus bicorne bicervical perméable découvert fortuitement lors d'une césarienne indiquée urgemment pour une dystocie dynamique de type hypercinétique rebelle au traitement chez une multipare âgée de 30 ans. L'intérêt de ce cas est de montrer le pronostic obstétrical chez les femmes fertiles porteuses de cette malformation utérine. PMID:24198877

  17. The use of health fairs in health promotion.

    Health fairs have been a typical intervention for most worksite and community health promotion programs. They are often one of the first types of intervention selected for use. Historically, they can be traced back to public health interventions conducted at 19th century county and state fairs, and have shown considerable sustaining resilience over time. A proposed 21st-century modification includes the concept of virtual health fairs, which use the Internet and provide a cyber version of the traditional health fair. Various programming strategies are proposed that have the potential to enhance the behavior change, risk mitigation, and economic return associated with health fairs. PMID:21721953

  19. Centaur D-1A nose fairing jettison test

    Prati, W. M.

    1976-01-01

    An experimental investigation was conducted to verify the functional and structural capability of the Centaur D-1A nose fairing. A full-scale flight-type nose fairing was jettisoned at the Lewis Research Center Space Power Chamber at simulated altitude. Two complete jettisons of the nose fairing were performed, one without aft helper springs and one with aft helper springs. A ''static'' rotation test was also performed to verify capability of the helper springs and to allow clearance measurements between the nose fairing and spacecraft envelope mock-up at certain discrete nose fairing rotation angles. Nose fairing trajectories, structural deflections, clearances, and hinge forces during jettison are presented. Data from subsequent Centaur D-1A flights, relative to nose fairing jettisons, are compared with the experimental results.

    RÉSUMÉ : L’annonce d’une déficience motrice cérébrale et des incapacités qui en découlent est une situation difficile à vivre pour les parents et les dispensateurs de soins (personnel paramédical et médecins). Un examen de la documentation médicale démontre que depuis vingt ans, le nombre de parents insatisfaits n’a pas changé. L’étude de type qualitatif et exploratoire, effectuée à la demande de milieux de réadaptation, vise à décrire le processus d’annonce d’un diagnostic de déficience motrice cérébrale (DMC) à partir de l’expérience des différents acteurs en cause et à déterminer les facteurs qui facilitent ou compliquent la relation de confiance. Les résultats indiquent que les parents et les dispensateurs de soins vivent dans deux mondes de perception différents au moment de l’annonce, lesquels se rejoignent difficilement. Les parents sont envahis par le drame qu’ils vivent, tandis que les médecins sont concentrés sur le contenu à transmettre aux parents. Cette annonce provoque une importante incertitude qui bloque la communication entre les partenaires, mais elle pourrait devenir un stimulant à de nouvelles stratégies d’adaptation. PMID:20084263
