ASASSN-14cv: stage B superhumps

   Enrique de Miguel and Michael Richmond have reported
new observations.  The object now stably shows stage B
superhumps.  The mean period since July 8 has been
0.06038(2) d.  The fractional superhump excess for
stage B superhumps is small (0.8%).  If one uses
the old form of relation such as Patterson et al. (2005),
one would obtain q=0.04, which makes a clear contrast
to the preliminary value q=0.075 from stage A superhumps
(vsnet-alert 17466).  The reason of this discrepancy
is explained in PASJ 65, 115.
