Een intellectuele trait d'union. La Revue de Hollande (1915-1918): literaire betrekkingen tussen Nederland en Frankrijk
Mathijs Sanders
TS·> Tijdschrift voor Tijdschrift-studies , 2011,
Abstract: During the First World War, some Dutch journals were explicitly oriented towards the culture of one of the belligerent nations. In periodicals such as the pro-German weekly De Toekomst (The Future) and the French oriented La Revue de Hollande, Dutch and foreign intellectuals and artists discussed the cultural identity of the Netherlands. This article draws attention to the latter journal. La Revue de Hollande pretended to be an intellectual trait d'union between the Netherlands and France. How did the editors try to achieve that aim? What does a first exploration of this magazine reveal about bilateral periodicals and their circles during the Great War?
Guerra e narrazione autodiegetica nel primo Gadda
Mathijs Duyck
Incontri : Rivista Europea di Studi Italiani , 2013,
Abstract: The experience of the Great War is a vital element in Carlo Emilio Gadda’s literaryapprenticeship. Although the autobiographical theme of war permeates practicallyall of Gadda’s writing, it is interesting to note how the author in his fictioneffectuates a process of distantiation. An important exception to this tendency are a series of ‘war articles’ which were first published in the newspaper L’Ambrosiano ,and which later formed the first part of the short story collection Il castello di Udine(1934). This sequence of five short texts presents an autodiegetic narrator which canbe identified with Gadda, and who develops a highly varied discourse on the war he fought, oscillating between essayistic, lyrical and narrative modes.10The paper intends to individuate the essential components of Gadda’s autodiegeticwar fiction through an intertextual analysis of the author's early works. The surprising intertextual relations between the war articles and the philosophical treatise Meditazione milanese will lead to a reflection on the relation between war experience, gnoseology, ethics and narration of war.

Some remarks on the construction of quantum symmetric spaces
Mathijs S. Dijkhuizen
Mathematics , 1995,
Abstract: We present a general survey of some recent developments regarding the construction of compact quantum symmetric spaces and the analysis of their zonal spherical functions in terms of $q$-orthogonal polynomials. In particular, we define a one-parameter family of two-sided coideals in $\Uq(\gog\gol(n,\CC))$ and express the zonal spherical functions on the corresponding quantum projective spaces as Askey-Wilson polynomials containing two continuous and one discrete parameter.
Scheduling with two non-unit task lengths is NP-complete
Jan Elffers,Mathijs de Weerdt
Computer Science , 2014,
Abstract: We consider the non-preemptive task scheduling problem with release times and deadlines on a single machine parameterized by the set of task lengths the tasks can have. The identical task lengths case is known to be solvable in polynomial time. We prove that the problem with two task lengths is NP-complete, except for the case in which the short jobs have unit task length, which was already known to be efficiently solvable.
Cytotoxic T Cells in H. pylori-Related Gastric Autoimmunity and Gastric Lymphoma
Mathijs P. Bergman,Mario M. D'Elios
Journal of Biomedicine and Biotechnology , 2010, DOI: 10.1155/2010/104918
Abstract: Helicobacter pylori infection is the major cause of gastroduodenal pathologies, but only a minority of infected patients develop gastric B-cell lymphoma, gastric autoimmunity, or other life threatening diseases, as gastric cancer or peptic ulcer. The type of host immune response against H. pylori, particularly the cytolytic effector functions of T cells, is crucial for the outcome of the infection. T cells are potentially able to kill a target via different mechanisms, such as perforins or Fas-Fas ligand interaction. In H. pylori-infected patients with gastric autoimmunity cytolytic T cells, that cross-recognize different epitopes of H. pylori proteins and H
A wise nurse can manage a paper protocol but prefers intelligent technology

Abstract: Glucose control is not simple but complex. This complexity is underscored by major problems that have been encountered with respect to safety and efficiency. Many factors are known to influence glucose control. Standardizing glucose control has been found to improve both safety and the efficiency of glucose control [2]. Moreover, results obtained with unstandardized treatment protocols as proposed by de Graaff et al. should be interpreted with great caution, as the exact characteristics of the therapy are unknown. We agree with de Graaff et al. that paper protocols can become too complex and may result in bad compliance, efficiency and safety.Computer protocols are generally easy to follow and require fewer glucose measurements than paper-based protocols [3-5]. In our own three-year experience, nurses – both novice and experienced – are very pleased with the efficient process a computer provides. Still, we also value wise nurses and allow our computer protocol to be overridden when needed.Abandoning advanced standardized therapy in favor of relying on human decision-making would clearly be a step backward in our view. The current "5 million lives campaign" by the Institute for Healthcare Improvement calls for a 50% reduction of harm related to high-alert medications (including insulin) focusing on standardization strategies to reduce the chance of human error [6]. In our opinion, a computer program recommending an insulin level, and seeing to it that glucose gets checked in time is the most standardized, effortless, safe and efficient form of glucose control currently available.The authors declare that they have no competing interests.
Design and implementation of GRIP: a computerized glucose control system at a surgical intensive care unit

Abstract: We designed and implemented GRIP, a stand-alone Java computer program. Our implementation of GRIP will be released as free software. Blood glucose values measured by a point-of-care analyzer were automatically retrieved from the central laboratory database. Additional clinical information was asked from the nurse and the program subsequently advised a new insulin pump rate and glucose sampling interval.Implementation of the computer program was uneventful and successful. GRIP treated 179 patients for a total of 957 patient-days. Severe hypoglycemia (< 2.2 mmol/L) only occurred once due to human error. With a median (IQR) of 4.9 (4.2 – 6.2) glucose measurements per day the median percentage of time in which glucose fell in the target range was 78%. Nurses rated the program as easy to work with and as an improvement over the preceding paper protocol. They reported no increase in time spent on glucose control.A computer driven protocol is a safe and effective means of glucose control at a surgical ICU. Future improvements in the recommendation algorithm may further improve safety and efficiency.Critically ill patients often suffer from 'stress hyperglycemia', a condition in which insulin resistance due to increased catecholamine levels causes high blood glucose values [1]. The association between stress hyperglycemia and adverse outcome has been observed in numerous patient categories, ranging from patients admitted to the general ward [2] to myocardial infarction [3] and stroke patients [4]. For decades, stress hyperglycemia was thought to be merely a marker of disease, and was tolerated as long as glucose levels were not excessively high (e.g., over 11.0 mmol/L). The publication of the Leuven intensive insulin therapy study in September 2001 caused a paradigm shift in critical care medicine [5]. This study showed that rapid lowering of blood glucose levels below 6.1 mmol/L and subsequent maintaining of normoglycemia reduce mortality and morbidity markedly. These resu

Recent studies on decentralized wetland governance in Uganda have focused mainly on the relationship between central and local governments. Less attention has been given to the relationship between agricultural systems, local governments, and water bodies. This study aims at assessing decentralized wetlands governance in the upper river Rwizi and Iguluibi micro catchments, Lake Victoria Basin Uganda, in relation to farming practices. Qualitative and quantitative methods were used to provide a comprehensive understanding of the contribution of decentralized governance to the management of wetlands resources. Quantitative survey data were analyzed using descriptive summary statistics with the help of Statistical package for Social Sciences (SPSS) soft ware. Qualitative data analysis involved the categorization of verbal and behavioral data for purposes of classification with the use of Nvivo soft ware. Data were analyzed at two levels: the descriptive level of analysis which is the account of the data in terms of what was said, documented or observed with nothing assumed about it. The second level of analysis was interpretive, where data is transformed into what is meant by the responses and conclusions are drawn. All recorded interviews were transcribed into a written report. Findings revealed that decentralized wetlands governance has brought ecosystem services nearer to communities in form of community-based management planning. However, results indicated inadequate institutional capacity, knowledge gaps of existing legal frameworks, limited political support and accountability for local leaders, lack of cooperation and coordination, and inadequate funding. In all, the policy has not fully realized its intended outcomes.
