Abstract:

Integrating information on the glycemic index (GI) and the glycemic load (GL) of diet is limited in C?te d’Ivoire because of the lack of data. Thus, this study was undertaking for the local management and prevention of diabetes mellitus and its complications based on nutritional data (GI and GL values). The study included ten healthy subjects with 7 males, 3 females (28 ± 2 years on average age and 20.5 ± 1.7 on average BMI). Participants tested three different meals with equal carbohydrate load (50 g). Blood samples were obtained at 0, 15, 30, 45, 60, 90 and 120 min before and after consumption for glucose levels determination. GIs were determined using a standard method with glucose as reference food and data were used for GLs calculating. Data showed that GIs value of pounded yam with eggplant sauce and cassava paste with granulates palm nut sauce were high ranging to 94 to 86 respectively while rice with groundnut sauce, have a low GI (GI = 45). Nevertheless, the GLs of the all the test foods are high with the values of 47, 43 and 23 (g) for pounded yam with eggplant sauce, cassava paste with granulates palm nut sauce and rice with groundnut sauce respectively. According to GIs and GLs data, the three test foods must be consumed moderately in a diet. So, it is important to associate GL data to GI data of Ivorian traditional foods for the management and the prevention of diabetes mellitus in C?te d’Ivoire and in others countries sharing the same food tradition.

Open Journal of Endocrine and Metabolic Diseases (OJEMD) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/ojemd.2017.75012
Abstract: Objective: After the Ramadan fasting period, there is an increasing prevalence of diabetes in Cote d’Ivoire, in diabetes care centers. The objective of this study was to assess the consumption of sugary foods during this period and to determine the risks of diabetes in Muslim populations. Methods: Information was collected on the type and amount of sugary foods consumed. Methods for the preparation of these foods have been determined. Intake frequencies and postprandial glycemic responses were studied. The usual statistical methods were used. Results: Between 70% and 85% of the “fasters” consume plenty of these sugary foods during this period, with an average added sugar level varying between 10% and 35% and a daily consumption of between 250 cl and 0.5 l. The added sugar leads to hyperglycemia in both healthy subjects and pre diabetics. Conclusion: Regular consumption of these sugary foods results in significant hyperglycaemia throughout the month of fasting with a significantly higher blood glucose level in pre diabetic subjects. This makes pre diabetics people more at risk of diabetes among Muslim populations during Ramadan fasting.

Advances in Sexual Medicine (ASM) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/asm.2017.74013
Abstract: Introduction: Early puberty is defined by development of secondary sexual characteristics before the age of 8 years in girls and 9 years in boys. In the West, one in five children out of 100,000 is concerned. Little information on sub-Saharan African patients exists concerning this pathology. Objective: To determine the etiology and clinical characteristics of early puberty in a cohort of Ivorian children. Methods: We conducted a cross-sectional study between 2015 and 2017 in children admitted to early puberty in the unique Endocrinology Service of the country. The epidemiology and clinical characteristics were assessed. Results: The eight patients involved were all females. Their mean age at diagnosis was 7 years and 3 months and the mean age of first symptoms begun at 5 years and 6 months. Seven patients had a central precocious puberty (CPP) including five cases of idiopathic CPP (ICPP) treated by (GnRH agonist) and two cases with secondary precocious puberty (SPP). One of them has a hypothalamic hamartoma and the other a sequelae of encephalopathy. The last case had a peripheral precocious puberty (PPP) causes by ovarian dystrophy. Conclusion: Our results confirm the predominance of idiopathic central precocious puberty particularly in girls.

L’écriture de l’histoire et la compétition européenne outre-mer au tournant du xviie siècle
Adrien Delmas
Atelier du Centre de Recherches Historiques , 2011, DOI: 10.4000/acrh.3632
Abstract: Au tournant du xviie siècle, l’irruption des navires fran ais, anglais et hollandais sur les trois océans, rompant avec le monopole ibérique sur les Indes orientales et occidentales, s’accompagne d’un déplacement de la notion de découverte. Afin de saisir les enjeux liés à l’appropriation de cette notion par les concurrents européens du Portugal et de l’Espagne, cet article se concentre sur les écrits de l’historien huguenot Henri Lancelot Voisin de La Popelinière (1541-1608) dans lesquels l’idée de découverte devient l’alpha et l’oméga d’une nouvelle écriture de l’histoire, supérieure en tout point, selon La Popelinière, à ce que les historiographes, Anciens ou Modernes, avaient proposé jusqu’alors. Chemin faisant, la notion se dotait également d’enjeux qui dépassaient largement la seule écriture de l’histoire : le récit des découvertes jouerait dorénavant le r le de garant dans la revendication de prises de possessions outre-mer. At the turn of the seventeenth century, the arrival of French, English and Dutch ships on three oceans and the breaking of the Iberian monopoly over the East and West Indies, was accompanied by a shift in the notion discovery. To understand the issues related to the appropriation of the concept by the European rivals of Portugal and Spain, this article focuses on the writings of the Huguenot historian Henry Lancelot Voisin de La Popeliniere (1541-1608). According to him, the idea of "discovery" should become the alpha and omega of a new writing of history, superior in all points from what historians, be they Ancient or Modern, had previously proposed. In the meantime, the notion was endowed with a significance that went far beyond the single issue of historical writing: the narratives of the discoveries would now play the role of guarantor for claiming possessions overseas.
Helen Farish and Feminine Poetic Identity
Adrien GRAFE
E-rea : Revue électronique d’études sur le Monde Anglophone , 2008, DOI: 10.4000/erea.109
Abstract: Helen Farish est à la fois poète et universitaire, spécialisée dans le domaine de la poésie féminine notamment américaine et de l’interface entre celle-ci et la théorie littéraire. Quelles sont ses propres options poétiques et théoriques, telles qu’elles apparaissent dans les poèmes du recueil Intimates (2005) ? Et qu’a-t-elle pu hériter du féminisme poétique, de poètes tels que M. Rukeyser ou K. Clanchy ? Farish établit sa propre identité poétique, celle d’une jeune femme du XXIème siècle en train de faire la double découverte du langage et du monde, explorant en même temps certaines facettes de la sexualité féminine. A l’aide d’éléments tirés de sources aussi diverses épistémologiquement que la tradition romantique, la réflexion sur le sujet de Nancy K. Miller, ou la pensée de Derrida, l’article examine l’ uvre d’un auteur qui a su tirer parti des combats menés par le féminisme pour se doter d’une voix ironique—y compris envers elle-même—pr nant une identité poétique et une identité du genre, lesquelles font la belle part à la souplesse, au caprice et au risque.
Danielewski-Fieseler surfaces
Adrien Dubouloz
Mathematics , 2004,
Abstract: We study a class of normal affine surfaces with additive group actions which contains in particular the Danielewski surfaces in $\ba^{3}$ given by the equations $x^{n}z=P(y)$, where $P$ is a nonconstant polynomial with simple roots. We call them Danielewski-Fieseler Surfaces. We reinterpret a construction of Fieseler \cite{Fie94} to show that these surfaces appear as the total spaces of certain torsors under a line bundle over a curve with an $r$-fold point. We classify Danielewski-Fieseler surfaces through labelled rooted trees attached to such a surface in a canonical way. Finally, we characterize those surfaces which have a trivial Makar-Limanov invariant in terms of the associated trees.
A Kohno-Drinfeld theorem for the monodromy of cyclotomic KZ connections
Adrien Brochier
Mathematics , 2010,
Abstract: We compute explicitly the monodromy representations of "cyclotomic" analogs of the Knizhnik--Zamolodchikov differential system. These are representations of the type B braid group $B_n^1$. We show how the representations of the braid group $B_n$ obtained using quantum groups and universal $R$-matrices may be enhanced to representations of $B_n^1$ using dynamical twists. Then, we show how these "algebraic" representations may be identified with the above "analytic" monodromy representations.
The component sizes of a critical random graph with given degree sequence
Adrien Joseph
Mathematics , 2010, DOI: 10.1214/13-AAP985
Abstract: Consider a critical random multigraph $\mathcal{G}_n$ with $n$ vertices constructed by the configuration model such that its vertex degrees are independent random variables with the same distribution $\nu$ (criticality means that the second moment of $\nu$ is finite and equals twice its first moment). We specify the scaling limits of the ordered sequence of component sizes of $\mathcal{G}_n$ as $n$ tends to infinity in different cases. When $\nu$ has finite third moment, the components sizes rescaled by $n^{-2/3}$ converge to the excursion lengths of a Brownian motion with parabolic drift above past minima, whereas when $\nu$ is a power law distribution with exponent $\gamma\in(3,4)$, the components sizes rescaled by $n^{-(\gamma -2)/(\gamma-1)}$ converge to the excursion lengths of a certain nontrivial drifted process with independent increments above past minima. We deduce the asymptotic behavior of the component sizes of a critical random simple graph when $\nu$ has finite third moment.
