Stereotype threat (ST), defined as the risk of confirming a negative stereotype about one’s own group, has been demonstrated in various social contexts. Regarding video games, for example, informing female participants that men would outperform women in gaming leads to gender differences in performance. To date, however, these studies have not looked into the mechanisms of this ST effect in gaming. In two lab studies (N=186), some participants were confronted with ST-related information before playing a video game. In Study 1, half of the participants read a bogus article confirming the “standard” gender stereotype (“men outperform women”). In Study 2, a reverse stereotype was presented to half of the participants (“women have outpaced men in some game genres”). In contrast to hypotheses, both studies failed to show the expected significant interaction effect of gender and ST condition on performance, although female participants confronted with the “standard” gender stereotype reported greater frustration in Study 1, for example. In sum, results indicate a complex relationship between gender, social identity, experience with the game genre, and behavior. Identifying oneself as a gamer and being experienced in a particular game genre were found to be better performance predictors than reading stereotype threatening information. [less ▲]

The objective of this brief essay is to discuss Edmond Malinvaud’s contribution to the European macroeconomic policy debate, as it evolved from the early seventies till the early 2000’s. I start with the concepts of Keynesian vs classical unemployment and the consequences of real wage rigidities. I next review Malinvaud’s analysis of the low-skilled unemployment problem and his call for targeted labour tax exemptions. I close with a brief discussion of the respective role of macroeconomic and structural policies. [less ▲]

Recently, Jones (2002 and Barro and Sala-í-Martin (2004) pointed out that the neoclassical growth model with a Cobb-Douglas technology has a closed-form solution.

Moreover, I emphasize structural similarities between the Malthusian and the neoclassical model if the dynamic behavior is governed by a Bernoulli differential equation. [less ▲]

The Hippo signaling pathway has recently moved to center stage in cardiac research because of its key role in cardiomyocyte proliferation and regeneration of the embryonic and newborn heart. However, its role in the adult heart is incompletely understood. We investigate here the role of mammalian Ste20-like kinase 2 (Mst2), one of the central regulators of this pathway. Mst2(-/-) mice showed no alteration in cardiomyocyte proliferation. However, Mst2(-/-) mice exhibited a significant reduction of hypertrophy and fibrosis in response to pressure overload. Consistently, overexpression of MST2 in neonatal rat cardiomyocytes significantly enhanced phenylephrine-induced cellular hypertrophy. Mechanistically, Mst2 positively modulated the prohypertrophic Raf1-ERK1/2 pathway. However, activation of the downstream effectors of the Hippo pathway (Yes-associated protein) was not affected by Mst2 ablation. An initial genetic study in mitral valve prolapse patients revealed an association between a polymorphism in the human MST2 gene and adverse cardiac remodeling. These results reveal a novel role of Mst2 in stress-dependent cardiac hypertrophy and remodeling in the adult mouse and likely human heart. [less ▲]

The intensive growth of processing power, data storage and transmission capabilities has revolutionized many aspects of science. These resources are essential to achieve high-quality results in many application areas. In this context, the University of Luxembourg (UL) operates since 2007 an High Performance Computing (HPC) facility and the related storage. The aspect of bridging computing and storage is a requirement of UL service – the reasons are both legal (certain data may not move) and performance related. Nowa- days, people from the three faculties and/or the two Interdisciplinary centers within the UL, are users of this facility. More specifically, key research priorities such as Systems Bio-medicine (by LCSB) and Security, Reliability & Trust (by SnT) require access to such HPC facilities in order to function in an adequate environment. The management of HPC solutions is a complex enterprise and a constant area for discussion and improvement. The UL HPC facility and the derived deployed services is a complex computing system to manage by its scale: at the moment of writing, it consists of 150 servers, 368 nodes (3880 computing cores) and 1996 TB of shared raw storage which are all configured, monitored and operated by three per- sons using advanced IT automation solutions based on Puppet [1], FAI [2] and Capistrano [3]. This paper covers all the aspects in relation to the management of such a complex infrastructure, whether technical or administrative. Most design choices or implemented approaches have been motivated by several years of experience in addressing research needs, mainly in the HPC area but also in complementary services (typically Web-based). In this context, we tried to answer in a flexible and convenient way many technological issues. This experience report may be of interest for other research centers belonging either to the public or the private sector looking for good if not best practices in cluster architecture and management.

Since heterozygous familial hypercholesterolemia (HeFH) is a disease that exposes the individual from birth onwards to severe hypercholesterolemia with the development of early cardiovascular disease, a clear consensus on the management of this disease in young patients is necessary. In Belgium, a panel of paediatricians, specialists in (adult) lipid management, general practitioners and representatives of the FH patient organization agreed on the following common recommendations.1.Screening for HeFH should be performed only in children older than 2 years when HeFH has been identified or is suspected (based on a genetic test or clinical criteria) in one parent.2.The diagnostic procedure includes, as a first step, the establishment of a clear diagnosis of HeFH in one of the parents. If this precondition is satisfied, a low-density-lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) level above 3.5mmol/L (135mg/dL) in the suspected child is predictive for differentiating affected from non-affected children.3.A low saturated fat and low cholesterol diet should be started after 2 years, under the supervision of a dietician or nutritionist.4.The pharmacological treatment, using statins as first line drugs, should usually be started after 10 years if LDL-C levels remain above 5mmol/L (190mg/dL), or above 4mmol/L (160mg/dL) in the presence of a causative mutation, a family history of early cardiovascular disease or severe risk factors. The objective is to reduce LDL-C by at least 30% between 10 and 14 years and, thereafter, to reach LDL-C levels of less than 3.4mmol/L (130mg/dL).Conclusion: The aim of this consensus statement is to achieve more consistent management in the identification and treatment of children with HeFH in Belgium. © 2011 Elsevier Ireland Ltd.

[en] Current best medical treatment for patients with Parkinson’s disease (PD) involves a medical professional who applies state-of-the-art knowledge of diagnostics and treatment— as derived from cohort studies and clinical trials— to the healthcare process of individual patients. Thus, the much-needed personalization of medicine depends on the abilities, experience and intuition of medical professionals to adjust group-based knowledge to individual decision making. Within 20 years from now, such personal clinical decisions will be largely supported by digital means, also defining a new ecosystem of healthcare often referred to as “digital medicine”. We expect that the next phase of digitalization will include new “digital health pathways”: data-driven personalized decision support that is based on a combination of multimodal data sources, including evidence-based medical knowledge (e.g., clinical guidelines), personal disease profiles (including genetic determinants of disease progression and treatment response), insights into individual disease trajectories (thereby defining subgroups of patients) and individual patients’ needs. Here, we illustrate the potential of this development by sketching the contours of a digitally supported care pathway for gait disability and falls. Such digital health pathways will support the introduction of personalized medicine for PD patients, allowing patients to benefit optimally from individually tailored treatments. This should result in a better quality of life for patients and lower costs for society. [less ▲]

Uncertainty in product characteristics is ubiquitous in any engineering system at all the stages of product life-cycle. Considering uncertainty from different sources during the product design phase is critical to its reliable performance. This paper presents a framework integrating the uncertainty propagation through different product characteristics and its effect on product properties. The framework consists of three main parts: a descriptive model based on formal logic and characteristics properties model; a mathematical implementation through set theory and probabilistic approach; and an algorithm for design space evaluation and tolerancing. The application of framework is demonstrated through an industrial case study. [less ▲]
