    This report aims at examining a resolution proposal explained by the commission in charge of European affairs and concerning the second strategic analysis of the energy policy which finds a consistency through the European action plan for the energy security and solidarity. The resolution proposal takes cognizance of the strategic trends proposed by the European Commission for the energy policy of the European Union at the 2020 and 2050 vistas, and invites the European Union and its member states to implement these trends. It stresses on the necessity to learn the lessons of the gas crisis of January 2009 and to diversify the gas supply sources of the member states. It recalls that a re-balancing of Europe's energy consumption in favour of low-carbon and renewable energies together with an improvement of energy efficiency is an urgent necessity and requires a coordination between the different national R and D programs and a communication effort, in particular in France. It encourages the proposal of implementation of a European nuclear safety framework and approves the priority given by the European Union to the development of power and gas interconnected networks in the respect of populations and territories.

    Schumpeter argued, long ago, that Quesnay's tableau economique was based on Cantillon, but this claim has never been spelled out in detail and seems not to have been generally accepted, since many writers still write of the tableau economique as though it were Quesnay's alone. This paper examines the relation between Cantillon and Quesnay in more detail than before and argues (a) that the relation between Cantillon's analysis of circulation and Quesnay's tableau is too close to be a coinciden...

  10. Evaluation des retombees economiques des projets energetiques au Quebec : Analyse couts-avantages de la mini-centrale hydroelectrique de Val-Jalbert

    Science.gov (United States)

    Ossoro, Marcel Thierry

    Evaluer les retombees economiques d'un projet, cela consiste a evaluer le benefice du projet du point de vue de la collectivite. C'est le processus d'analyse, de mesure et d'appreciation de l'impact du projet, sur l'economie locale, regionale ou nationale. Il permet de prendre une decision optimale sur la faisabilite de l'investissement compte tenu de ses incidences sur l'ensemble des agents economiques. L'incoherence des approches et outils dans l'evaluation peut biaiser le calcul de l'impact net du projet, et par consequent, biaiser les termes de la hierarchisation des priorites en matiere d'investissement. Dans le cas des projets sensibles, necessitant de lourds investissements et beaucoup mediatises, comme cela est le cas des projets energetiques ; le biais peut s'averer desastreux et aboutir a une situation chaotique. La presente recherche porte sur l'evaluation des retombees economiques des projets energetiques au Quebec ; la pertinence et la coherence des outils et methodes d'evaluation. Elle est edifiee par une etude de cas. L'etude porte sur l'evaluation du projet de la mini-centrale hydroelectrique de Val Jalbert par la methode de l'analyse couts-avantages. Nous utilisons la methode des prix de reference selon l'approche de l'ONUDI. L'etude revele que le projet de la mini-centrale hydroelectrique de Val Jalbert repond positivement aux deux objectifs : l'efficience---maximisation de la consommation, et l'equite sociale---maximisation de la justice sociale. Il est donc considere, du point de vue de l'ONUDI, comme etant economiquement (ou socialement) rentable. L'analyse couts-avantages est un puissant evaluateur d'impact. Elle evalue le projet en l'integrant dans un cadre coherent d'analyses economiques, qui repose non seulement sur des valeurs nationales mais egalement, qui prend en compte les couts et avantages directs, indirects, internes et externes ; ce qui fait de l'outil, l'evaluateur le plus complet. A travers l'etude, nous montrons comment l

    Ce document présente, dans le cadre d'un contexte conceptuel, une méthode d'enchaînement servant à faire le lien entre les différentes étapes qui permettent de réaliser la simulation d'un aéronef à partir de ses données géométriques et de ses propriétés massiques. En utilisant le cas de l'avion d'affaires Hawker 800XP de la compagnie Hawker Beechcraft, on démontre, via des données, un processus de traitement par lots et une plate-forme de simulation, comment (1) modéliser la géométrie d'un aéronef en plusieurs surfaces, (2) calculer les forces aérodynamiques selon une technique connue sous le nom de Vortex Lattice Method, (3) construire un modèle de vol servant à la simulation des aéronefs pour leur enveloppe de vol en ajoutant des fonctions supplémentaires, (4) construire un modèle de turbosoufflante simplifié, (5) développer un algorithme d'équilibre (trim) du mouvement longitudinal, (6) développer des algorithmes de contrôle à commande moderne, (7) développer certaines fonctions d'un système de pilotage automatique, et (8) rassembler le tout sous une même plate-forme de simulation. Afin de supporter ce travail, une application publique Matlab, connue sous le nom de Tornado, est utilisée conjointement avec d'autres fonctions pour la conception du modèle de vol aérodynamique. D'ailleurs, il sera démontré que le modèle de vol, quoiqu'il soit quand même crédible, ne concorde pas tout à fait avec les données de référence. Par contre, puisque le modèle des moteurs fonctionne bien, que l'algorithme d'équilibrage du mouvement longitudinal fonctionne bien et que les pôles des systèmes dynamiques concordent avec la littérature, les tests dynamiques effectués au sein de la plate-forme de simulation permettent d'obtenir des résultats fonctionnels et crédibles. D'ailleurs, deux systèmes d'augmentation de la stabilité basés sur la méthode de contrôle moderne LQR et couvrant l'enveloppe de vol de l'aéronef via un

    This report concerns the examination of three proposals of law in relation with the regulated prices of electricity and gas. Since July 1, 2007, the French households can freely quit their historical energy supplier and subscribe to other suppliers with de-regulated energy prices. In front of the rise of free energy prices observed during the last years, some households who made the choice of free tariffs have encountered serious financial problems. For this reason, a law is proposed by the commission of economic affairs which aims at allowing the end-users to get back to the regulated tariffs of electricity and gas. (J.S.)

    The bill asserting the French national commitment for the environment (also named 'Grenelle 2') is considered as the juridical tool-box of the French environmental policy. It confirms, strengthens, and concretizes the objectives defined by the Grenelle 1 law. The main dispositions of the bill concern the following domains: settlement and urbanism with the improvement of the energy efficiency, energy conservation and life-cycle of buildings; transports with the development of sustainable transportation systems; energy with the creation of regional climate, air and energy schemes with the aim of developing renewable energies (with some restrictions concerning wind power) and reducing CO{sub 2} emissions; biodiversity with the creation of ecological pathways between protected areas for the migration of flora and fauna species; environment and waste management with the reinforcement of measures for the abatement of environmental pollutant effects. Among the numerous dispositions involving more than 20 codes (urbanism, environment, buildings etc..) one concerns the progressive implementation of a 'carbon price' index taking into account the greenhouse gas emission costs during the whole life cycle of a product, another one concerns the monitoring of indoor air quality in public buildings. This document recalls first the objectives of the bill adopted by the Senate, then it presents the proposals of the rapporteurs of the French House of Commons, followed by the auditions of the Junior Ministers in charge of ecology, accommodation and urbanism, energy, sustainable development, green technologies and climate. Finally, each article of the bill is described, and examined by the deputies. (J.S.)

    This report of the French National Assembly first presents the different programmes and actions related to energy and industry for which credits are foreseen in the French finance bill for 2010: development of firms and employment, energy policy, after-mining policy, struggle against climate change, management of ecology, energy, sustainable development, and sea policies, research in the field of energy and sustainable development and planning. The author then outlines the importance of the creation of conditions for a green growth in order to cope with an unprecedented crisis which ruins industrial employment. This implies the support of strategic sectors (energy-efficient building, evolution towards green chemistry, photovoltaic solar energy, renewable heat, innovating vehicles), the implementation of new priorities (smart grids, management of raw materials), and the emergence of ecological technologies promoted by the new tools of a climate policy (carbon tax introduction, improvement of carbon markets). It also implies an industrial output for research by means of a networking of actors (development of competitiveness poles, participation to European partnerships), and a reinforcement of the industrial horizon in the research policy (patenting, start-up development, support to innovating small and middle-sized companies, implementation of a true French capital-risk sector)

    In her introduction, the author gives a description of the difficult context and situation faced by the industrial sector in France, notably because of the growing activity of emerging countries like China, India or Brazil, but also because of the weakness of research industrial valorization and of the innovation policy (losing the manufacturing capacity leads to losing the capacity for innovation). Then, after a critic of the current policy (reform of the professional tax, a boosting plan with limited results), she comments the contents of public programmes concerning firm and job development, energy, the steering of ecology, energy, sustainable development and sea policies, research in energy and sustainable development and land planning. She comments ways and tools aimed at supporting industrial jobs through innovation: the FSI (strategic investment fund), the competitiveness poles, specific aids to small and medium sized enterprises, tax credit related to research activities. She addresses the energy sector, questioning the French supremacy in the nuclear energy and the increase of electricity price, and criticizing the management of the development of renewable energies (high expenses for no industrial development)

    Each year, tenths of thousands of underprivileged French people are deprived of the most elementary comfort which is the access to electric power or gas, because they can no longer pay their energy bill. The aim of the proposal of law from M. J.P. Kucheida is to establish a universal energy covering and to organize its financing by the national solidarity fund. This report recalls, first, the legal background of the necessity of an effective warranty of energy supply and, then, demonstrates the necessity of the re-establishment of a financing system based on the national solidarity in particular in the context of a progressive privatization of energy utilities. Finally, the proceedings of the examination of the proposal by the commission are reported. (J.S.)

    This text is the conclusion of a long parliamentary procedure with several debates about electricity and natural gas prices, for both individual users and companies. The first article of the proposal of law relative to regulated electricity and gas tariffs, is the only one that remains to be discussed, and concerns the households and the companies with a low power consumption. Examined first at the Senate on October 1, 2007, this proposal of law was debated at the House of Commons on December 11, 2007 and modified for one important point: the possibility for households who have made the choice of a de-regulated energy supplier to change back and benefit again of the regulated tariffs. The adoption of this amendment has led to make some adjustments in the proposal of law which are presented in this document. (J.S.)

    In 1991 the France decided to intensify its researches in the high activity radioactive wastes management domain. The law of the 30 December 1991 relative to the radioactive wastes management, decided that a period of 15 years would be devoted to the research of very long dated solutions. Taking into account these researches, a law project has been composed. After a recall of the today situation of radioactive materials and wastes in France and the knowledge since 1991, this document presents the law project. (A.L.B.)

    Full Text Available L’auteur analyse le processus de mise en place d’un capital social ayant pour objectif de favoriser l’insertion des personnes en situation d’isolement. L’individu isolé ne profite pas des autres pour améliorer sa situation. Par conséquent, ne disposant d’aucun capital social, la personne isolée ne peut donc augmenter sa chance d’employabilité. Dans cette perspective, nous nous référerons aux travaux de recherche sur le concept de capital social et plus particulièrement à ceux portant sur le rôle des réseaux sociaux. L’hypothèse retenue est de démontrer que la lutte contre le chômage et les exclusions est en grande partie tributaire de l’insertion dans un réseau. Ce dernier produit “la relation” qui est un input nécessaire à la formation du capital social. Ce dernier est le résultat d’un échange d’où notre postulat du marché social à vocation économique.

    The paper briefly reviews the various techniques used in processing the radioactive wastes which unavoidably result from the generation of electric power from nuclear sources. The paper goes on to define the relative importance, in nuclear fuel cycles, of the problem raised by these wastes. Emphasis is placed on the economic influence of management policies on the cost of power generation, and hence on the relative position of nuclear energy. A substantial percentage of these wastes can be economically utilized. Attention is drawn to the major technical and economic features of the industry which will come into being as a result of this utilization. The major uses anticipated are discussed: radiation sources, heat sources, auxiliary power generation. The paper concludes that satisfactory solutions have already been found to these problems, and describes possible improvements. (author) [French] La communication rappelle d'abord succinctement les differentes techniques de traitement des dechets radioactifs resultant necessairement de la production d'electricite d'origine nucleaire.

On fait ressortir l'influence economique du choix des methodes de gestion sur le cout de production de l'energie, et par consequent sur la place devolue a l'energie nucleaire. Une part importante de ces dechets peut faire l'objet d'une utilisation rentable de l'industrie qui naitra de cette utilisation. Les principales applications envisagees sont evoquees: sources d'irradiation, sources chauffantes, generateurs auxiliaires d'energie. On conclut que d'ores et deja des solutions satisfaisantes ont ete apportees a ces problemes, et l'on decrit les perspectives d'amelioration concevables. (auteur)

    The detection of nuclear or radioactive materials for homeland or national security purposes is inherently difficult. This is one reason detection efforts must be seen as just one part of an overall nuclear defense strategy which includes, inter alia, material security, detection, interdiction, consequence management and recovery. Nevertheless, one could argue that there has been a revolution in detection affairs in the past several decades as the innovative application of new technology has changed the character and conduct of detection operations. This revolution will likely be most effectively reinforced in the coming decades with the networking of detectors and innovative application of anomaly detection algorithms.

    The protocol adopted in London (UK) on November 7, 1996 aims at updating the London convention of December 29, 1972 about the control of all pollution sources that can affect the marine environment by immersion. The pollution sources in concern are: the organo-halogenated compounds, the metals like mercury, cadmium, arsenic, lead, copper, zinc etc., the plastics and other non-destructible synthetic materials, the crude oil and petroleum products, the highly radioactive wastes, the biological and chemical materials used for weapons, the cyanide and fluoride compounds etc.. The new protocol deepens the London convention by the addition of two main environmental principles: the precaution principle and the polluter-pays principle. However, these rules remain largely dependent of the good will of the states signatories to the protocol. This report made on behalf of the commission of foreign affairs stresses on the remaining gaps and limitations of the new protocol before giving its agreement for the adoption of the project of law submitted by the Senate for the adhesion of France to this protocol.

    This report explains the contradictions between the European liberalization process and the logics of the French public utilities at three different levels: historical, economical and legal: 1 - the public utilities and Europe: the French model, the European change, an inexorable-like designed process; 2 - the dead-end of network activities liberalization: destructive strategy of the unique market, forced introduction of competition into networks, the dark side of a non-judicious liberalization: convergence towards the private monopoly, degradation of services quality, destruction of solidarity mechanisms, occurrence of new risks; 3 - public utilities in front of the European law: a basic concept of French administrative right (area and principles of public utilities), European juridical approach (confuse definition and surveillance regime), weak consideration (symbolic acknowledgement, marginal juridical protection).

    Full Text Available Le travail a comme point de départ le problème des systèmes de protection sociale des états membres qui sont mis a dure épreuve dans le dernier décennie, comme conséquence des tendances démographiques mais aussi du niveau augmenté du chômage. Pour cette raison, dans ce travail sont analysées les modalités de financement de la protection sociale dans les états membres de l’Union Européenne et sont relevés les risques induits par les dépenses vastes pour la protection sociale sous la forme du retardement du rythme de la croissance économique ayant des effets opposés sur les revenus et sur le niveau de la protection sociale. Par conséquence, le plus grand problème n’est pas la manière d’amasser la monnaie nécessaire pour la protection sociale de taxes ou contributions, mais la façon de soutenir un niveau adéquat de la croissance économique et d’augmenter le rythme de l’occupation. Dans la seconde partie du travail sont évaluées une série de modalités par lesquelles on peut assurer le remboursement du social dans les conditions des restrictions politiques et économiques, étant possible d’identifier deux aspects qui sont mis en discussion : la sélectivité croissante des prestations et la redéfinition de la structure des prélèvements.

    The economic advantage of electricity-generating nuclear stations decreases when their size decreases. However, when a counter-pressure turbine is joined on to a reactor and the residual heat can be properly used, it can be shown that fairly low capacity nuclear equipment may compete with conventional equipment under certain realistic enough conditions. The aim of this paper is to define these special conditions under which nuclear energy can be profitable. They are connected with the location and the general economic environment of the station, the pattern of the electricity and heat demands it must meet, the level of fuel and specific capital costs, nuclear and conventional. These conditions entail certain technical and economic specifications for the reactors used in this way otherwise they are unlikely to be competitive. In addition, these results are referred to the potential steam and electricity market, which leads us to examine certain uses for the heat generated by double purpose power stations; for example, to supply combined industrial plants, various types of town heating and for removal of salt from sea water.

Cette communication a donc pour but de mettre en evidence quelles sont ces conditions particulieres de rentabilite de l'energie nucleaire. Elles sont liees a la localisation de la centrale et a son contexte economique general, a la structure de la demande d'energie electrique et thermique a laquelle elle doit satisfaire, au niveau des couts des

Voltaire’s complex operation succeed in mobilizing public opinion and was resumed in the well known Traité sur la tolérance, an early example of the typical scheme of the affaire. Through the analysis of the public opinion in France during the XVIII century, we will demonstrate the ambivalence of Voltaire’s thoughts in relation to this concept: one one side reign of the irrationality, when linked to the local reality, on the other, source of truth when enlightened and universal.

    In may 2004, the protocol of conformal radiotherapy applied to the prostate tumors has been modified. The change concerned the use of dynamic wedges in place of static wedges. This change supposed to change also the parameters of the calculation of irradiation intensity but this will not be made for some patients. This error could be corrected if the in vivo dosimetry had been kept and if the calculation of the number of monitors units had been maintained. 23 patients were submitted to an overexposure between the 6. may 2004 and the 1. august 2005. The first symptoms appeared in january 2005. The patients consulted their personal practitioner who sent them to a gastro-enterologist. The endoscopy revealed the existence of a rectitis which went by aggravating. In August, 2005 they were ten patients with severe hurts. During summer 2005, a radiotherapist doctor and a radio physicist found the error of overdose, They warned the manager of the hospital who warned in her turn, the D.D.A.S.S. (department direction of sanitary and social affairs) and A.R.H. (regional authority of hospitalization). Only seven patients were informed of the overdose, the sixteen other ones supposed wrongly unhurt, were not informed about the accident. The national authorities (I.R.S.N.) were warned in july 2006. Between september 2005 and september 2006 four patients died. Ten patients had severe damages, nine a moderate one. The report gives some propositions to avoid these kind of accidents in the future.

    2 billion people on the planet do not have access to energy. This energy deficiency has an impact on health, infant mortality, life expectancy, education, and women's emancipation and it slows development. Following the Copenhagen summit, in a financial crisis context that heavily impacted the world economies, energy issues demand real political commitment, because solutions exist. They include awareness-building, responsibility and commitment of society, because a better accessibility for the populations can't be achieve without the beneficiaries. [French] 2 milliards d'individus n'ont pas acces a l'energie sur la planete.

    Several multilateral environmental agreements (MEAs) have been concluded since the Rio Earth Summit in 1992. Some of them have created economic instruments designed to arrest the rapid degradation of the planet environment. Until now and for a variety of reasons, the countries in the Priority Solidarity Zone (PSZ) have not been able to stand as very active partners in negotiating these instruments. This study seeks to respond to the question of whether the PSZ countries are in a position to derive benefit from these new instruments and what the potential impact of these instruments will be on their medium and long-term development. This question often has to be put in more basic terms: ''do the conditions required to apply these instruments exist in the PSZ countries?''.

    Quality of electric current is guaranteed to its high-voltage clients by the Electricite de France`s Emeraude contract; the main problem is due to the fact that an industrial client does not know the nature of perturbations that its plant generates nor that they may propagate on the EDF distribution system. In that case, these clients will likely be obliged to contribute to EDF`s investments for improving the line quality

    The ability of a Rhodococcus strain to produce surface-active agents from residual sunflower frying oil (RSFO) has been screened in batch cultures. During cultivation with RSFO at the concentration 3% (vol/vol), the strain has synthesized extra-cellular compounds which increase the E{sub 24} emulsion index of the culture medium up to 63%. In their crude form, these substances lower the surface tension of water until 31.9 mN m{sup -1}. The exponential growth with RSFO as the sole carbon source has developed at a specific growth rate {mu} = 0.55 d{sup -1}. The critical micelle concentration of the crude product reached the value 287 mg L{sup -1} ({gamma}CMC = 31.9 mN m{sup -1}). After methyl-esterification, the lipid fraction of bio-surfactants has been analyzed by GC-MS in EI, which reveals the presence of fatty acid methyl esters. The microorganism was also cultivated with the diesel oil as the sole carbon source at the concentration 1% (vol/vol): the active growth phase has developed at rate = 0.02 d{sup -1}, without production of emulsifying substance: the microorganism seems to develop different modes of substrate uptake, according to the nature of the carbon source. The potential use of surface-active agents synthesized on RSFO by Rhodococcus erythropolis 16 LM.USTHB is in the oil industry with minimum purity specification, so that crude preparation could be used, at low cost, in clean-up of hydrocarbons contaminated sites and for enhanced oil recovery.

    The processing of heavy {alpha}-contaminated equipment at the Marcoule Centre has been carried out for a long time by a rather expensive 'manual' method. It has become necessary to reduce these costs by using more automated methods. Two studies which have been carried out have shown that when the amount of waste to be treated is large and is composed mainly of plastic material, it is possible to design economic installations using cooling and shock demolition, conventional compaction leading to rather poor results. For average quantities, a cutting-up reservoir, used also for other purposes, makes it possible to solve these processing problems at Marcoule. The costs involved are much lower than those previously required in the case of so-called 'manual' methods. (author) [French] Le conditionnement du gros materiel contamine en {alpha} a longtemps ete effectue sur le Centre de Marcoule par une methode 'manuelle' assez couteuse. Il est apparu necessaire de chercher a reduire les couts en utilisant des methodes plus automatisees. Deux etudes ont permis de montrer que lorsque les quantites a traiter sont grandes et interessent surtout des dechets plastiques, on pouvait concevoir economiquement des installations utilisant le refroidissement et choc, le compactage classique donnant des resultats assez decevants. Pour les quantites moyennes, une piscine de decoupage, utilisable d'ailleurs a d'autres fins, permet de resoudre, a Marcoule, le probleme du conditionnement. Les frais sont tres inferieurs a ceux anciennement engages avec les methodes 'manuelles'. (auteur)

(authors) [French] Dans une premiere partie, on situe l'interet economique de l'utilisation de l'uranium naturel comme combustible. Cet interet reside a la fois dans le nombre limite et la simplicite relative des operations de mise en forme des elements combustibles, dans le faible cout du produit fini par kwh et dans les immobilisations modestes en capital qu'implique ce cycle par rapport ou cycle de l'uranium enrichi. Tous ces elements permettent de reduire le caractere aleatoire des evaluations des couts, particulierement marque dans le cas de l'uranium enrichi, en raison de la complexite de son cycle et des incertitudes concernant le prix du plutonium. Enfin, la diversite des sources d'approvisionnement en concentre d'uranium naturel opposee au quasi monopole actuel de la separation isotopique, et le faible cout du stockage de ce concentre, offrent des garanties en matiere de securite d'approvisionnement et d'independance economique et politique appreciables par rapport a l'uranium enrichi.

  18. Social theory and current affairs: a framework for intellectual engagement.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Stones, Rob

    2014-06-01

    The paper aims to facilitate more adequate critical engagement with current affairs events by journalists, and with current affairs texts by audiences. It draws on social theory to provide the intellectual resources to enable this. The academic ambition is for the framework to be adopted and developed by social thinkers in producing exemplary critical readings of news and current affairs texts. To this end it is offered as a research paradigm. The paper situates its argument in relation to the wider literature in media and cultural studies, acknowledging the subtle skills required to appreciate the relative autonomy of texts. However, it draws attention to the lack of an adequate perspective with which to assess the frames, representations, and judgments within news and current affairs texts. To address this lacuna it proposes the conception of a social-theoretical frame, based on a number of meta-theoretical approaches, designed to provide audiences with a systematic means of addressing the status and adequacy of individual texts. Social theoretical frames can reveal the shortcomings of media framing of the contextual fields within which news and current affairs events take place. Two illustrative case studies are used to indicate the value and potential of the approach: the analysis of a short newspaper report of the return of protesters to Cairo's Tahrir Square in 2011, and a critique of four current affairs reports from various genres on the political turmoil in Thailand leading up to the clashes of May 2010.

However, as a matterof law, there is no enforceable obligation on the shareholdersto attend the AGM of their companies for that matter, orindeed, actively participate in the affairs of the company,but such shareholders remain bound by any decision themeeting may take, their nonparticipation notwithstanding.Conclusively, the study submitted that active participationof shareholders in the AGM is capable of saving theircompanies from possible lapses that may be as a resultof mismanagement. Therefore shareholders should attendmeetings of their companies, mostly the AGM.

    Full Text Available Es un hecho irreversible que el logos eurocéntrico ha implosionado en sus propias fuentes de desarrollo político y económico. El peligro de esta crisis es total porque abarca su hegemonía y a la humanidad y a la naturaleza. ¿De qué alternativas disponemos para superar este fin de milenio y su hecatombe? Es evidente que estamos viviendo los "tiempos póstumos" o de "filosofía finisecular" de una Modernidad que luce, por otra parte, rebasable desde otra episteme histórico-cultural que reconozca la relación ecosistema del hombre en el conjunto de la diversidad existencial de los seres vivos que pueblan este planeta. Esta otra epistemología que tiene su génesis en la Teoría Crítica y se recrea enAmérica Latina, desde el Sur, se asume desde la praxis de un logos emancipador que fractura los límites hegemónicos del "capitalismo sin fin" y del "colonialismo sin fin", ya que hace posible recuperar desde la "sociología de las emergencias", la presencia de los pueblos milenarios que han logrado la recreación de su habitat a través de una relación simbiótica directa, con los ciclos o procesos de génesis y muerte de la Madre Tierra (Pachamama.

    2012-04-01

    Full Text Available En janvier 1507, les « apparitions de la Vierge » dans le couvent dominicain de Berne commencent à défrayer la chronique. L’affaire des visions de Jean Jetzer se déroule sur fond de querelle immaculiste entre dominicains et franciscains. Les dominicains du couvent de Berne ont eu l’idée de créer des apparitions de la Vierge de toutes pièces au moyen de déguisement et de machineries de théâtre pour faire croire à la conception maculée de Marie contre leurs détracteurs franciscains. Leur chef de file est le prieur du couvent, Johannes Vatter, assisté de trois autres accolytes, le sous-prieur, Franz Ueltschi, le maître en théologie et lecteur Stephan Boltzhurst, l’administrateur Heirich Steinegger. La machination qu’ils orchestrent érige de la sorte en visionnaire patenté un novice à la crédulité éprouvée, Jean Jetzer, victime de leur complot. L’affaire défie la chronique et provoque la rumeur. La ville de Berne où elle se déroule est toute proche de la Bâle du Concile (1431-1449 qui a déclaré l’Immaculée Conception « doctrine pieuse et conforme au culte de l’Église » (session du 17 septembre 1439 comme de la Bâle du Formicarius – somme démonologique de répression de la sorcellerie – composée en 1435-1437 par le prieur des dominicains, Jean Nider, sur la base des conclusions de l'inquisiteur Pierre de Berne. La « fiction » de Berne témoigne des stratégies théologiques à l’égard des révélations et des miracles dans la controverse de l’Immaculée Conception. Si elle relève ici de l’affabulation volontaire, elle montre aussi l’usage qui pouvait être fait du discours visionnaire et de son nécessaire discernement à la toute fin du Moyen Âge. L’ensemble de ce dossier exceptionnel permet dès lors de saisir l’instrumentalisation des révélations qui ont pris une importance nouvelle dans les querelles théologiques de l’Immaculée Conception à la fin du Moyen Âge.

  9. Museum security and the Thomas Crown Affair.

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Michaud, E. C. (Nuclear Engineering Division)

    2010-01-01

    Over the years, I've daydreamed about stealing a Vermeer, a Picasso, or Rembrandt. It tickles me, as much as watching the reboot of The Thomas Crown Affair. Why is it, do you suppose, so much fun to think about stealing a world renowned piece off the wall of a major metropolitan museum? Is it the romantic thoughts of getting away with it, walking past infrared detectors, and pressure sensors ala Indiana Jones with the sack of sand to remove the idol without triggering the security system? Is it the idea of snatching items with such fantastic prices, where the romance of possessing an item of such value is less intoxicating than selling it to a private collector for it to never be seen again? I suspect others share my daydreams as they watch theater or hear of a brazen daylight heist at museums around the world, or from private collections. Though when reality sets in, the mind of the security professional kicks in. How could one do it, why would one do it, what should you do once it's done? The main issue a thief confronts when acquiring unique goods is how to process or fence them. They become very difficult to sell because they are one-of-a-kind, easy to identify, and could lead to the people involved with the theft. The whole issue of museum security takes up an ironic twist when one considers the secretive British street artist 'Banksy'. Banksy has made a name for himself by brazenly putting up interesting pieces of art in broad daylight (though many critics don't consider his work to be art) on building walls, rooftops, or even museums. I bring him up for a interesting take on what may become a trend in museum security. In March of 2005, Banksy snuck a piece of his called 'Vandalized Oil Painting' into the Brooklyn Museum's Great Historical Painting Wing, plus 3 other pieces into major museums in New York. Within several days, 2 paintings had been torn down, but 2 stayed up much longer. In his home country of the UK, a

De quelle vie particulière vivent les personnages de roman, qui fait que nous sommes capables de les tenir pour plus réels que des personnages réels, et que nous sommes enclins à éprouver les sentiments qu’ils éprouvent, même si nous savons qu’ils n’existent pas ? Comment ces personnages de fiction existent-ils, selon quelle « partition » leur existence se développe-t-elle au point d’interférer avec la nôtre ? L’interrogation porte sur la nature de ce flux émotionnel qui s’écoule du lecteur vers les personnages de fiction et les investit de valeur, sur ce qui se projette de la vie vers le roman, entraînant avec lui le lecteur qui se trouve de la sorte impliqué malgré lui dans l’histoire, et se trouve pris dans le mécanisme de l’identification et de la vie fictive.Some commentaries about fiction charactersPutting into form a number of observations and developing an analysis on the status of fiction characters, the author draws on resources coming from history, literature, semiotic, logic et narration.

How do these characters exist? In other words, according to what “script” does their existence develop to the point of interfering with ours? The questioning centres on the nature of the emotional flux which flows from the reader towards the fictional characters thus giving them value, and on what it is which is projected from real life towards the novel and which is capable of sweeping up the reader who, without having particularly intended to do

    Nos travaux sur l'adsorption de gaz dans les materiaux microporeux s'inscrivent dans le cadre des recherches visant a augmenter l'efficacite du stockage de l'hydrogene a bord des vehicules. Notre objectif etait d'etudier la possibilite d'utiliser l'adsorption afin d'ameliorer l'efficacite de la liquefaction de l'hydrogene des systemes a petite echelle. Nous avons egalement evalue les performances d'un systeme de stockage cryogenique de l'hydrogene base sur la physisorption. Comme nous avons affaire a des plages de temperatures particulierement etendues et a de hautes pressions dans la region supercritique du gaz, nous avons du commencer par travailler sur la modelisation et la thermodynamique de l'adsorption. La representation de la quantite de gaz adsorbee en fonction de la temperature et de la pression par un modele semi-empirique est un outil utile pour determiner la masse de gaz adsorbee dans un systeme mais egalement pour calculer les effets thermiques lies a l'adsorption. Nous avons adapte le modele Dubinin-Astakhov (D-A) pour modeliser des isothermes d'adsorption d'hydrogene, d'azote et de methane sur du charbon actif a haute pression et sur une grande plage de temperatures supercritiques en considerant un volume d'adsorption invariant. Avec cinq parametres de regression (incluant le volume d'adsorption Va), le modele que nous avons developpe permet de tres bien representer des isothermes experimentales d'adsorption d'hydrogene (de 30 a 293 K, jusqu'a 6 MPa), d'azote (de 93 a 298 K, jusqu'a 6 MPa) et de methane (de 243 a 333 K, jusqu'a 9 MPa) sur le charbon actif. Nous avons calcule l'energie interne de la phase adsorbee a partir du modele en nous servant de la thermodynamique des solutions sans negliger le volume d'adsorption. Par la suite, nous avons presente les equations de conservation de la niasse et de l'energie pour un systeme d'adsorption et valide notre demarche en comparant des simulations et des tests d'adsorption et de desorption.

In this article, the author examines the uses of the concept of commitment in order to understand the reasons for its growing popularity. He also points out the nature of one of the social mechanisms to which the term implicitly refers, and he develops a preliminary theory of the social conditions and processes implied in the functioning of this mechanism. Given the semantic variety of the term, it proves useless to speculate on its “true” meaning.

    Full Text Available El análisis de las remesas internacionales en los países receptores es un tema ampliamente debatido en la literatura especializada. Sin embargo, en las diferentes perspectivas analíticas y metodológicas no hay consenso sobre la dirección, magnitud e implicancias de estos procesos. Este artículo examina evidencia empírica con base en microdatos de la Encuesta Permanente de Hogares de Paraguay. En primer lugar, se analizan de manera comparativa los patrones sociodemográficos de los hogares receptores del sur y del norte, y de los no perceptores. En segundo lugar, se detallan los mecanismos de circulación y usos de las remesas internacionales en los diferentes circuitos migratorios. Los resultados obtenidos destacan las especificidades de los macrosistemas migratorios vinculados al sur y al norte globales.

    Philosophe et sinologue, François Jullien présente ici une conférence qu'il a prononcée auprès de chefs d'entreprise et dans le milieu du management. D'un côté, la conception européenne de l'efficacité est liée à la modélisation comme à la finalité et revendique l'action jusqu'à l'héroïsme ; de l'autre, la pensée chinoise de l'efficience, indirecte et discrète, s'appuie sur le potentiel de situation et induit des " transformations silencieuses ", sans éclat ni même événement. Par-delà cet écart, il s'agira d'interroger la nature de l'effectivité ; ou comment l'intervention humaine réussit à se brancher sur la propension des choses et s'y laisse intégrer. Ce propos se garde donc de séparer tant soit peu l'art d'opérer sur des situations et l'exercice de la philosophie ; en résultent des effets de lecture portant sur l'histoire du XXe siècle ainsi que la géopolitique - et géoéthique - à venir.

Este trabajo expone resultados relacionados a la caracterización realizada en el 2011 en familias residentes en la denominada zona sur-sur de Costa Rica sobre la cultura de consumo de productos hortícolas. Se aplicaron cuestionarios a una muestra estratificada de familias; lo que permitió establecer la valoración de los precios de mercado, por parte de las familias, para consumir estos alimentos, donde se determinó un valor máximo de US$1,74 millones por semana. Los principales rubros de consumo de acuerdo al valor pagado fueron el tomate, la papa, el plátano, la cebolla y el brócoli, para citar los cinco principales. También fue posible establecer valoraciones cualitativas sobre el consumo de estos productos; por ejemplo se determinó que para el 71,2% de las familias, la frescura representa la característica de mayor valor, además, el principal sitio donde los núcleos familiares realizan las compras de estos alimentos corresponde a supermercados (38,4% de los casos.

  15. Teratology Public Affairs Committee position paper: maternal obesity and pregnancy.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Scialli, Anthony R

    2006-02-01

    Compared to normal-weight women, obese women have an increased risk of infertility and pregnancy complications. The most consistently described pregnancy complications are hypertensive disorders, gestational diabetes mellitus, thromboembolic events, and cesarean section. Fetal and neonatal complications may include congenital malformations, macrosomia, and shoulder dystocia. The literature suggests that women with a body mass index (BMI) >or=30 have approximately double the risk of having a child with a neural tube defect (NTD) compared to normal-weight women, and the increased risk associated with higher maternal body weight does not appear to be modified by folic acid supplementation. The Public Affairs Committee of the Teratology Society supports the public health initiatives identified by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 2004 and the research initiatives identified by the National Institutes of Health in 2004. The Public Affairs Committee recommends that clinicians counsel women about appropriate caloric intake and exercise and that health-care providers educate parents about appropriate childhood nutrition. Breast-feeding should be encouraged based on evidence of a protective effect against childhood obesity, as well as other health advantages.

  16. Electrical Resistivity Tomographies on the detection of adobe buried archaeological structures in Piramide Sur in Cahuachi (Peru)

    Capozzoli, L.; Masini, N.; Rizzo, E.; Lasaponara, R.; Orefici, G.

    2012-04-01

    During the last two decades of excavations, adobe pyramids dating back from the 6th century B.C. to the 4th century A.D have been unearthed in the ancient Ceremonial Centre of Cahuachi near Nasca (Peru) by an Italian-Peruvian mission directed by Giuseppe Orefici. One of the archaeological sectors, called sector A, has been almost excavated and restored. To complete sector A only a terraced mound named "Piramide Sur" needs to be excavated. In order to provide useful information on the presence of buried structures and platforms as well on the geological stratigraphy a multi-scale approach based on the integration of satellite remote sensing with geophysical techniques was employed. Such investigations were carried out by the Italian mission ITACA, funded by the Italian Ministry Affairs and composed of researchers of two institutes of CNR (IMAA and IBAM), which provides a scientific support for archaeological research, since 2007. In particular, the subsurface features were investigated by Geoelectrical prospecting, performed by using a georesistivimeter for tomography which observe the resistivity value along sections. Several tomographies were carried out to investigate the shallow and deep structure of the pyramid both along the main flank at Nord and on the top. Finally, the integration of all data acquired by the different remote sensing techniques allowed for spatially characterizing the archaeological features, thus providing important information for the planning of the next archaeological campaign.

    This report aims at defining some perspectives for the evolution of the European general legal framework for nuclear safety. The authors first outline the difficulty for a European policy to emerge. They explain this statement by the importance of the current policy of national states, of their operators and of their national regulation authorities. They evoke the few elements of this legal framework (EURATOM Treaty, jurisprudence) but outline the strong cooperation between national authorities. Then, they discuss some progresses which have been noticed during the past two years (the 'safety' directive, a proposition for a directive on the management of used fuel and radioactive wastes, and the recent works by WENRA), and discuss the consequences of the accident in Fukushima. Propositions are made, notably concerning the support to the 'waste' directive, the perpetuation of strength tests, the rewriting of the 'safety' directive of June 2009

  19. Representation of Refugees, Asylum-Seekers and Refugee Affairs In Hungarian Dailies

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Lilla VICSEK

    2008-11-01

    Full Text Available How does the press in Hungary write about refugees, asylum-seekers and refugee affairs? We sought to answer this question. Articles appearing in 2005 and 2006 in two leading national Hungarian dailies were examined with quantitative content analysis. The results show that the articles analyzed often treat refugee affairs as an “official” political matter. The high proportion of legislation and political positions conveys the image that refugee affairs are a state or intergovernmental matter, an “official”, legal, political issue rather than for example a humanitarian question. Most of the articles published in both papers write about problems and conflicts in connection with refugee affairs. The negative media image has different significance for different topics. We argue that the question of refugee affairs is a topic where the image shown by the media is of great relevance: the media can be a more important source of information on this subject than personal contacts.

    L'assemblage par soudage peut engendrer des contraintes residuelles. Ces contraintes provoquent des fissurations prematurees et un raccourcissement de la duree de vie des composants. Dans ce contexte, le martelage robotise est utilise pour relaxer ces contraintes residuelles. Trois volets sont presentes: le premier est l'evaluation des effets des impacts unitaires repetes sur le champ de contraintes developpe dans des plaques d'acier inoxydable austenitique 304L vierges ou contenant des contraintes residuelles initiales. Dans la deuxieme partie de ce projet, le martelage est applique grace au robot SCOMPI. Les contraintes residuelles induites et relaxees par martelage sont ensuite mesurees par la methode des contours, qui a ete adaptee a cet effet. Dans la troisieme partie, le martelage est modelise par la methode des elements finis. Un modele axisymetrique developpe grace au logiciel ANSYS permet de simuler des impacts repetes d'un marteau elastique sur une plaque ayant un comportement elastoplastique.

Au-delà des débats de société suscités par le vivant aujourd’hui, il est essentiel de mettre au jour les présupposés épistémologiques qui, en plus des politiques scientifiques, orientent les recherches sur le vivant qui, ensuite, sont mobilisées comme moyen de légitimation des arguments dans ces débats. La science apparaît alors comme une institution non neutre, inscrite dans la culture, qui influence les débats publics sur le vivant, au lieu de seulement les éclairer.

  6. Female genital mutilation. Council on Scientific Affairs, American Medical Association.

    Science.gov (United States)

    1995-12-06

    Female genital mutilation is the medically unnecessary modification of female genitalia. Female genital mutilation typically occurs at about 7 years of age, but mutilated women suffer severe medical complications throughout their adult lives. Female genital mutilation most frequently occurs in Africa, the Middle East, and Muslim parts of Indonesia and Malaysia, and it is generally part of a ceremonial induction into adult society. Recent political and economic problems in these regions, however, have increased the numbers of students and refugees to the United States. Consequently, US physicians are treating an increasing number of mutilated patients. The Council on Scientific Affairs recommends that US physicians join the World Health Organization, the World Medical Association, and other major health care organizations in opposing all forms of medically unnecessary surgical modification of the female genitalia.

    2011-03-01

    On September 10, 2003, Anna Lindh, the Swedish Minister for Foreign Affairs, was assassinated. The offender, a 24-year-old man, was a socially isolated, culturally and familially dislocated, yet academically quite competent young man who became enthralled with the habitual criminality of some of his relatives and their associates, and then psychiatrically decompensated in his early twenties. He had a history of serious violence before the crime, including the gross assault with a knife of his alcoholic and abusive father when he was 17, stalking, and extortion. At least a year prior to the assassination, he confided to a friend his desire to attack someone famous in front of many people. A definitive motive for the crime was not possible to establish. This was an act of intended, yet opportunistic violence toward a national political figure. The dynamics of the case are placed in the context of other attacks on Western European and U.S. politicians.

A bien y regarder, ils ont pourtant traité l’affaire comme la plupart des faits divers, avec tout ce que cela signifie comme dépendance à l’égard des sources judiciaires. Sans doute un climat d’attente à l’égard des questions de pédophilie a-t-il contribué à lever les garde-fous professionnels. La référence au respect du secret n’est pas tenable face au poids de la rumeur dès l’origine. Les contre-enquêtes difficiles sur ce sujet n’ont pas eu d’écho jusqu’au procès de Saint-Omer. En dénonçant, au final, le fiasco judiciaire, les médias ont-ils tenté de se dédouaner ou de réparer ?The responsibility of the media in mishandling the Outreau case is now evident. Looking carefully, one nevertheless sees that the media handled it in a business-as-usual manner, which means dependence on judicial sources. Doubtless the reserve engendered by the subject of pedophilia contributed to the unprofessional shortcutting of careful verification. From the beginning, the reference to the respect of confidentiality could not hold in front of public rumour. The results of a difficult counter-investigation were ignored until the Saint-Omer trial. By denouncing the judicial fiasco at the end, did the media seek to absolve itself of responsibility or was it trying to make amends?

  20. Effets des electrons secondaires sur l'ADN

    Boudaiffa, Badia

    Les interactions des electrons de basse energie (EBE) representent un element important en sciences des radiations, particulierement, les sequences se produisant immediatement apres l'interaction de la radiation ionisante avec le milieu biologique. Il est bien connu que lorsque ces radiations deposent leur energie dans la cellule, elles produisent un grand nombre d'electrons secondaires (4 x 104/MeV), qui sont crees le long de la trace avec des energies cinetiques initiales bien inferieures a 20 eV. Cependant, il n'y a jamais eu de mesures directes demontrant l'interaction de ces electrons de tres basse energie avec l'ADN, du principalement aux difficultes experimentales imposees par la complexite du milieu biologique. Dans notre laboratoire, les dernieres annees ont ete consacrees a l'etude des phenomenes fondamentaux induits par impact des EBE sur differentes molecules simples (e.g., N2, CO, O2, H2O, NO, C2H 4, C6H6, C2H12) et quelques molecules complexes dans leur phase solide. D'autres travaux effectues recemment sur des bases de l'ADN et des oligonucleotides ont montre que les EBE produisent des bris moleculaires sur les biomolecules. Ces travaux nous ont permis d'elaborer des techniques pour mettre en evidence et comprendre les interactions fondamentales des EBE avec des molecules d'interet biologique, afin d'atteindre notre objectif majeur d'etudier l'effet direct de ces particules sur la molecule d'ADN. Les techniques de sciences des surfaces developpees et utilisees dans les etudes precitees peuvent etre etendues et combinees avec des methodes classiques de biologie pour etudier les dommages de l'ADN induits par l'impact des EBE. Nos experiences ont montre l'efficacite des electrons de 3--20 eV a induire des coupures simple et double brins dans l'ADN. Pour des energies inferieures a 15 eV, ces coupures sont induites par la localisation temporaire d'un electron sur une unite moleculaire de l'ADN, ce qui engendre la formation d'un ion negatif transitoire

    Saccharomyces cerevisiae sphinganine C4-hydroxylase encoded by the SUR2 gene catalyses the conversion of sphinganine to phytosphingosine. We isolated the SUR2 gene from Pichia ciferrii using nucleotide sequence homology to S. cerevisiae SUR2 to study hydroxylation of sphinganine in the sphingoid base overproducing yeast P. ciferrii. A positive clone was confirmed by nucleotide sequencing. A syringomycin-E resistance phenotype of a S. cerevisiae sur2-null mutant was complemented by expression of the cloned P. ciferrii SUR2 gene. Restoration of phytosphingosine production in the complemented strain was also confirmed, indicating that the cloned gene is a functional homologue of S. cerevisiae SUR2. .

    The present study, carried out by the Canadian Wind Energy Association (CanWEA), examines the economic spin-off from development of the wind energy network throughout Quebec and in the Gaspe Peninsula. It covers the classic economic spin-offs, direct, indirect and secondary during the construction (2005-2010) and the operational phases (2011-2015). The further development of this network over the period 2016- 2025 is also discussed. This activity gives rise to thousands of permanent jobs in the two regions during both the construction and the operation phases as well as creating network-related businesses (recruitment, consulting engineering, production, management, financing). Moreover, millions of dollars are paid, and will be paid in future, to municipalities and land owners where the wind turbines are built, or will be built, in the form of fees and rents as well as funds to promote research and specialised training in local universities and research centres.

    2016-06-01

    Full Text Available This article presents the empirical research results of the level of legal conscience forming in law enforcement officials. The study of gender specifics of personnel is now becoming more and more relevant due to a constant increase in the number of women entering the Ministry of Internal Affairs service. The study involved 160 male and 120 female staff members. Analysis of the results revealed a general legal conscience trend typical for male and female employees which manifests in a high level of legal knowledge, adequate understanding of group relativity of moral and ethical norms, civic un-engagement and disinterest to leadership role. This trend reflects a certain viewpoint when human rights are considered to include only freedom, independence and personal self-assertion without responsibility and civic duties. It was found that female employees have higher level of legal conscience forming than male employees. This led to the conclusion of a high-availability of female employees to comply with legal regulations and requirements.

  12. Candida albicans SUR7 contributes to secretion, biofilm formation, and macrophage killing

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Bernardo Stella M

    2010-04-01

    Full Text Available Abstract Background Candida albicans SUR7 has been shown to be required for plasma membrane organization and cell wall synthesis, but its role in virulence is not known. Using a bioinformatics strategy, we previously identified several novel putative secretion pathway proteins potentially involved in virulence, including the C. albicans homolog of the Saccharomyces cerevisiae endocytosis-related protein Sur7p. We therefore generated a C. albicans sur7Δ null mutant and examined its contribution to key virulence attributes. Results Structurally, the C. albicans sur7Δ mutant was impaired in response to filamentation-inducing conditions, and formed aberrant hyphae with extensive accumulation of plasma membrane-derived structures within the cell. Absence of SUR7 resulted in a temperature-sensitive growth defect at high temperatures (42°C, which was partially rescued by addition of NaCl. We next examined the role of the SUR7 paralog C. albicans FMP45 in this temperature-sensitive phenotype. Analysis of C. albicans Fmp45p-GFP demonstrated co-localization of Fmp45p with Sur7p and increased fluorescence in the plasma membrane in the presence of high salt. We next focused on key virulence-related phenotypes. The C. albicans sur7Δ null mutant exhibited secretory defects: reduced lipase secretion, and increased levels of secreted Sap2p. The null mutant was hyper-susceptible to sub-inhibitory concentrations of caspofungin, but not amphotericin B and 5-fluorocytosine. Functionally, the sur7Δ mutant demonstrated increased adhesion to polystyrene and of note, was markedly defective in biofilm formation. In an in vitro macrophage model of virulence, the sur7Δ mutant was impaired in macrophage killing. Conclusions Plasma membrane and cell wall organization are important for cell morphology, and alterations of these structures contributed to impairment of several key virulence-associated phenotypes in the C. albicans sur7Δ mutant.

  16. Things That are Near Though Distant: Extramarital Affairs in Heian-Period Japan

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Matthew Grubits

    2009-12-01

    Full Text Available According to historian William McCullough, a society cannot be understood without an appreciation of its marriage institutions, for marriage institutions are a dominant strand in the fabric of any society. In the Heian period, however, there was an even more dominant strand in the fabric of society than marriage that impinged on the relationships between aristocratic men and women. As historian Ivan Morris points out, the most prevalent relationships between men and women were extramarital affairs. If an appreciation of marriage institutions is necessary for us to understand Heian society, then an appreciation of affairs is likewise necessary. Few historians have addressed the subject of affairs, though they are central to the most notable texts from the period. This article addresses this gap in scholarship by exploring why affairs were so prevalent during the Heian period. This exploration involves looking at the marriage institution, perceptions of sexuality, belief systems and, importantly, aestheticism. Heian society was intensely aesthetic – a great emphasis was placed on pathos, beauty and aesthetic acts such as composing poetry. This paper argues that affairs were themselves aesthetic acts; that is, they were occasions of aesthetic expression. Because aristocrats had a preoccupation with aestheticism, they embraced affairs.

    The company 'Societe Nouvelle du Radium' extracted radium and produced radium needles in Gif-sur-Yvette (Essonne) from 1904 to 1957. In 1959, this site was converted into a habitable zone. Since then, this district called the 'Petite Coudraie' has been going through several radioactivity measurements and decontamination works. In 2000, the detection of very high levels of radon above sanitary recommendations in one house encouraged the local authorities to launch a systematic investigation and risk analysis in order to take the necessary measures against radiological risks for the whole concerned district. The 'Direction Departementale des Affaires Sanitaires et Sociales' (D.D.A.S.S.), the French Institute of Public Health (InVS) and the Institute of Nuclear Protection and Security (I.P.S.N.) conducted a health impact assessment of the pollution in this area. The Office for the Protection against Ionizing Radiations (O.P.R.I.) and the I.P.S.N. first measured the radioactivity found on the surface area. The I.P.S.N. then conducted a dosimetric study based on the measurement results and realistic exposure scenarios of adults and children present in the area. Finally, on the base of these results, the InVs did a quantitative risk assessment of cancer due to exposure to the radioactive residuals from the past industrial activities which is the subject of this report. This assessment allows to estimate the extent of this potential health impact due to the contamination of the area with the current scientific knowledge. It assesses the contribution of the various sources ways of exposure to risk and therefore directs the measures of management priority. Finally, it also allows to appreciate the relevance of an epidemiological study on the population who was present in this area. (author)

    Full Text Available La presencia de profesorado universitario nativo de ELE en Corea del Sur está aumentando en la actualidad, aunque todavía no deje de ser un hecho meramente anecdótico respecto a la presencia de profesorado nativo de otras lenguas como el inglés o el chino. Todo ello responde a una realidad ligada al aumento de estudiantes universitarios que eligen como lengua de estudio el español y a la necesidad creciente de ofrecerles las herramientas suficientes para defenderse en esta lengua. Pero, ¿por qué se contrata a personal nativo para la enseñanza de español en Corea del Sur? ¿Cuál es su rol en la universidad? ¿Cómo y dónde encaja el docente nativo en este escenario educativo? Y, por último, ¿cumple las expectativas que de él se espera? Con este artículo, que es fruto de una ampliación del trabajo de final de Máster de uno de sus autores, hemos trazado el perfil prototípico del docente de español en el sistema universitario surcoreano.

    Full Text Available L’auteur propose ici un commentaire sur les points les plus importants de son entretien de février 2003 avec Paul Ricœur consacré aux rapports entre herméneutique et psychanalyse. Bien que le philosophe se situe dans une réelle continuité par rapport à sa contribution de 1965, il enrichit toutefois sa réflexion philosophique sur la psychanalyse en proposant plusieurs innovations, en ce qui concerne plus particulièrement les thèmes du récit, du soi et de l’éthique. Dans les conclusions de son commentaire, l’auteur souligne l’importance des concepts d’“irreprésentable” et d’“intraduisible”: non seulement, en effet, ces concepts sont dans la ligne de nombreuses contributions de la psychanalyse contemporaine, mais la profondeur de la réflexion ricœurienne augmente en outre leur potentiel théorique et même clinique.

    Full Text Available La comparaison entre les résultats de nombreux travaux sur le dialogue dans le texte littéraire, sur l’attestation linguistique de la subjectivité, sur la fonction argumentative des émotions dans le discours et sur les effets de polyphonie, suggère que la structure sémiotique et linguistique du discours direct (DD se trouve au croisement stratégique de plusieurs axes de la construction discursive. Nous étudions donc l’insertion du DD dans le discours (cf. Rosier 2008: Le discours rapporté en français; Kerbrat 2005: Le Discours en interaction et Id. 2008: Le Dialogue comme objet d’analyse linguistique; Maingueneau 2010: Manuel de linguistique pour le texte littéraire en tant que phénomène de rupture sémiotique (Genette 1972: Figures III et Id. 1983: Nouveau discours du récit, dans ses fonctions discursives plurielles, tantôt émotives (Tannen 1989: Talking Voices; Plantin-Traverso-Vosghanian 2008: Parcours des émotions en interaction, tantôt argumentatives (Doury 2001: La Fonction argumentative des échanges rapportés; Stati 1990: Le transphrastique. Du point de vue méthodologique, nous nous proposons de revisiter empiriquement, par l'étude de corpus, les traits linguistiques structuraux qui caractérisent l’insertion du DD dans un récit à l'écrit, en les comparant systématiquement aux traits de l’insertion du DD dans un récit à l'oral. Une analyse parallèle est possible en ce qui concerne les fonctions discursives, que le DD typiquement déroule dans les récits. Les fonctions du DD décrites à partir de l'étude des corpus sont plurielles: on reconnaît des fonctions fortement argumentatives d'autres plus typiquement narratives, tandis que d'autres encore amalgament les deux fonctions. Le « contrat de littéralité », qui selon Genette ne porterait jamais que sur la teneur du discours, doit donc être fortement nuancé selon les contextes, tandis que l'effet de sens le plus directement lié à la

    Patricia L Schirmer

    Full Text Available BACKGROUND: Although dengue is endemic in Puerto Rico (PR, 2007 and 2010 were recognized as epidemic years. In the continental United States (US, outside of the Texas-Mexico border, there had not been a dengue outbreak since 1946 until dengue re-emerged in Key West, Florida (FL, in 2009-2010. The objective of this study was to use electronic and manual surveillance systems to identify dengue cases in Veterans Affairs (VA healthcare facilities and then to clinically compare dengue cases in Veterans presenting for care in PR and in FL. METHODOLOGY: Outpatient encounters from 1/2007-12/2010 and inpatient admissions (only available from 10/2009-12/2010 with dengue diagnostic codes at all VA facilities were identified using VA's Electronic Surveillance System for Early Notification of Community-based Epidemics (ESSENCE. Additional case sources included VA data from Centers for Disease Control and Prevention BioSense and VA infection preventionists. Case reviews were performed. Categorical data was compared using Mantel-Haenszel or Fisher Exact tests and continuous variables using t-tests. Dengue case residence was mapped. FINDINGS: Two hundred eighty-eight and 21 PR and FL dengue cases respectively were identified. Of 21 FL cases, 12 were exposed in Key West and 9 were imported. During epidemic years, FL cases had significantly increased dengue testing and intensive care admissions, but lower hospitalization rates and headache or eye pain symptoms compared to PR cases. There were no significant differences in clinical symptoms, laboratory abnormalities or outcomes between epidemic and non-epidemic year cases in FL and PR. Confirmed/probable cases were significantly more likely to be hospitalized and have thrombocytopenia or leukopenia compared to suspected cases. CONCLUSIONS: Dengue re-introduction in the continental US warrants increased dengue surveillance and education in VA. Throughout VA, under-testing of suspected cases highlights the need to

    Full Text Available Specifics of human resources management in maritime affairs is reflected in the fact that part of the staff of enterprises is displaced on ships which represent a specific and isolated environment. Specifics of human resources management on ships are focused to decision-making in crisis situations, the deployment of personnel and work load, and giving orders to perform certain tasks. In this context it is necessary to examine the management of human resources which should include managing, motivation, rewarding, communication, education, advancement, decision-making and employee satisfaction in the specific environment. The aim of the research is to analyze the above stated parameters and connect them with the characteristics of companies in the sector of maritime logistics. The purpose of this paper is to provide an insight into the human resources management in companies involved in logistics in maritime transport i.e. delivery and transport of goods. Taking into account their differences, it can be concluded that companies in the maritime industry have different human resource management systems, which affects the company's business. The research methodology is based on the collection of data through questionnaires and databases created from them. The study included a total of 31 companies. According to the collected data, statistical analysis will be conducted which will be based on correlation and descriptive statistics. The analysis of the theoretical basis has not confirmed the existence of similar studies that take into account the observation of human resources management on ships. Therefore, it can be concluded that the research will be of interest for the field of business logistics as well as the whole scientific and professional community. Recommendations related to the current and future human resource management in maritime companies will be given in the conclusion.

  9. Divorce your car: ending the love affair with the automobile

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Alvord, K.

    2000-07-01

    This book is a guide for people wishing to liberate themselves from their addiction to cars and the automobile culture. It is a repository of examples and actions that individuals and communities can take to reduce dependence on the automobile. The range of possibilities run from using cars less to not owning one at all. The book provides a humorous yet clear-headed approach to a greener world and maps out the road to how people can live happily ever after by breaking free of 'auto-cracy', without insisting on people in car-dependent countries quit their automotive addiction instantly. Nevertheless, it clearly articulates the connection between automobiles, their arteries (i.e. highways) and effluents (i.e. greenhouse gases and particulate emissions), and the increasing number and severity of natural disasters between the urban renewal and freeway construction that, in the author's view, helped ignite the riots in Watts, Newark and Detroit. The disastrous societal and geophysical effects of the automobile are demonstrated in great abundance, and the mountain of evidence of the systematic abuse of the planet that the book provides is a stunning refutation of the notion that technology is neutral. The automobile is accused of being not only the linchpin of Western and primarily American industrialism and resource extraction, it is also accused of being the chief suspect in a century-long theft of time, conviviality and beauty. How to bring about a change in people's love affair with their cars is difficult to comprehend but this author has a multitude of useful suggestions which seem to suggest that it is possible. There is a list of 104 'selected references' and an extensive list of 'other resources'.

  10. Transgenic overexpression of SUR1 in the heart suppresses sarcolemmal K(ATP).

    The lack of pathological consequences of cardiac ATP-sensitive potassium channel (K(ATP)) channel gene manipulation is in stark contrast to the effect of similar perturbations in the pancreatic beta-cell. Because the pancreatic and cardiac channel share the same pore-forming subunit (Kir6.2), the different effects of genetic manipulation likely reflect, at least in part, the tissue-specific expression of the regulatory subunit (SUR1 in pancreas vs. SUR2A in heart) of the bipartite channel complex. To examine this, we have generated transgenic (TG) mice that overexpress epitope-tagged SUR1 or SUR2A under the transcriptional control of the alpha-myosin heavy chain promoter. Western blot and real time RT-PCR analysis confirm transgene expression in the heart, and variable levels of SUR1 RNA and protein, in 16 viable founder lines. Surprisingly, activation of channels by either pharmacological agents (diazoxide and pinacidil) or metabolic inhibitors (oligomycin and 2-deoxyglucose) reveals a suppression of total K(ATP) conductance in high expressing TG mice. Moreover, K(ATP) channel activity was significantly reduced in excised cardiac patches from TG myocytes that overexpress either SUR1 or SUR2A. Using a recombinant cell system, we show that overexpression of either SUR1 or Kir6.2 suppresses the functional expression of K(ATP) from optimized dimeric SUR1-Kir6.2. Thus, the graded effect of SUR1 expression in the intact heart appears to demonstrate an in vivo requirement for 1:1 expression ratio of Kir6.2 and SURx.

It finally realizes the rationalization, normalization and scientization of disabled person affairs management. It also makes significant contributions to the great-leap-forward development of the informationization of China Disabled Person's Federation.

  12. SUR1-Associated Mechanisms Are Not Involved in Ischemic Optic Neuropathy 1 Day Post-Injury.

    2016-01-01

    Ischemia-reperfusion injury after central nervous system (CNS) injury presents a major health care challenge with few promising treatments. Recently, it has become possible to reduce edema after CNS injury by antagonizing a sulfonylurea receptor 1 (SUR1) regulated ion channel expressed after injury. SUR1 upregulation after injury is a necessary precondition for the formation of this channel, and has been implicated in white matter injury after clinical spinal cord trauma. Glibenclamide, an SUR1 antagonist, appears to have neuroprotective effect against cerebral stroke in an open-label small clinical trial and great effectiveness in reducing damage after varied experimental CNS injury models. Despite its importance in CNS injuries, SUR1 upregulation appears to play no part in rodent anterior ischemic optic neuropathy (rAION) injury as tested by real-time PCR and immunohistochemical staining of rAION-injured rat optic nerve (ON). Furthermore, the SUR1 antagonist glibenclamide administered immediately after rAION injury provided no protection to proximal ON microvasculature 1 day post-injury but may reduce optic nerve head edema in a manner unrelated to ON SUR1 expression. Our results suggest that there may be fundamental differences between rAION optic nerve ischemia and other CNS white matter injuries where SUR1 appears to play a role.

  14. Le dernier Wittgenstein et le dernier Husserl sur le langage

    Paul Ricoeur

    2014-07-01

    Full Text Available This article presents an edited version of lectures given by Paul Ricœur at Johns Hopkins University in April 1966. Ricœur offers a comparative analysis of Wittgenstein’s and Husserl’s late works, taking the problem of language as the common ground of investigation for these two central figures of phenomenology and analytic philosophy. Ricœur develops his study in two parts. The first part considers Husserl’s approach to language after the Logical Investigations and concentrates on Formal and Transcendental Logic; leaving a transcendental reflection on language behind it re-examines a phenomenological conception, according to which the sphere of logic is not separable from that of experience. The main focus of the second part is Wittgenstein’s later philosophy as it moved on from the conception of an isomorphic relation between language and the world, as set out in the picture theory in the Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus, to the more pragmatic notion of a language-game in the Philosophical Investigations. In order to get beyond the irrevocable differences between the two philosophies and the unresolved theoretical issues on both sides, Ricœur suggests turning to a semiological paradigm based on the Saussurean distinction between “language” and “speaking.” Keyword: Analytic Philosophy, Husserl, Phenomenology, Semiology, Wittgenstein.  Résumé Cet article est une version éditée de conférences données par Paul Ricœur à la Johns Hopkins University en avril 1966.

Trois passages, suivis chacun de l'enlèvement des poissons capturés, ont été opérés dans chacun des trois Secteurs d'inventaire. Le peuplement le plus probable ainsi estimé (par la méthode De Lury,est en rapport avec le degré de pollution du canal. On constate aussi queles poissons se cantonnent le long des berges, sur une largeur de 2 à 3mètres.L'estimation à l'hectare représente donc en réalité le stock d'une zone n'ayant que 25 % de la surface totale du Canal.

    2014-04-01

    Full Text Available The purpose of the study was to document the pastora, a song-dance performance during Christmas season that calls to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ in two towns of Camarines Sur, Philippines. Specifically, it focused on its production aspect. The categories include: the handing down of oral traditions which influenced the trainers' casting, choreography, costumes, props, musical accompaniment, and performances. The researcher made use of real time data: videotaped pastora dances, observer’s notes, ex post facto data: stimulated recall and interviews. There were similarities and differences in the production of these pastora. Both of the trainers were exposed to this activity at a young age. At present, their granddaughters are members of their respective pastora groups—one way of handing down the oral tradition to the younger generations. Both groups have dresses made of silks and laces. With regard to the choice of colors, Mimay prefers to use light colors such as white, light blue, and pink while Rita favors loud colors such as red, green, and golden yellow. At present they use only one kind of musical instrument in their pastora. Pastora Baao uses a saxophone while pastora Bombon uses a guitar. The trainers also differ in standards for recruiting members. Mimay prefers to invite girls with good singing voice, good dancing ability, and good physical appearance, while Rita believes that willingness is the most important quality of a pastora. The similarities in the production of these pastora reveal the possibility that pastora in Camarines Sur came from one source. The similarities also revealed the impact of pastora in maintaining religiosity and the socio-cultural environment. The differences are influenced by the tradition handed down to trainers, the trainers’ personal outlook, geographical locations, and economic condition.

  1. Components of SurA required for outer membrane biogenesis in uropathogenic Escherichia coli.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Kristin M Watts

    Full Text Available BACKGROUND: SurA is a periplasmic peptidyl-prolyl isomerase (PPIase and chaperone of Escherichia coli and other Gram-negative bacteria. In contrast to other PPIases, SurA appears to have a distinct role in chaperoning newly synthesized porins destined for insertion into the outer membrane. Previous studies have indicated that the chaperone activity of SurA rests in its "core module" (the N- plus C-terminal domains, based on in vivo envelope phenotypes and in vitro binding and protection of non-native substrates. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: In this study, we determined the components of SurA required for chaperone activity using in vivo phenotypes relevant to disease causation by uropathogenic E. coli (UPEC, namely membrane resistance to permeation by antimicrobials and maturation of the type 1 pilus usher FimD. FimD is a SurA-dependent, integral outer membrane protein through which heteropolymeric type 1 pili, which confer bladder epithelial binding and invasion capacity upon uropathogenic E. coli, are assembled and extruded. Consistent with prior results, the in vivo chaperone activity of SurA in UPEC rested primarily in the core module. However, the PPIase domains I and II were not expendable for wild-type resistance to novobiocin in broth culture. Steady-state levels of FimD were substantially restored in the UPEC surA mutant complemented with the SurA N- plus C-terminal domains. The addition of PPIase domain I augmented FimD maturation into the outer membrane, consistent with a model in which domain I enhances stability of and/or substrate binding by the core module. CONCLUSIONS/SIGNIFICANCE: Our results confirm the core module of E. coli SurA as a potential target for novel anti-infective development.

  2. HMR 1098 is not an SUR isotype specific inhibitor of heterologous or sarcolemmal K ATP channels.

    Murine ventricular and atrial ATP-sensitive potassium (K(ATP)) channels contain different sulfonylurea receptors (ventricular K(ATP) channels are Kir6.2/SUR2A complexes, while atrial K(ATP) channels are Kir6.2/SUR1 complexes). HMR 1098, the sodium salt of HMR 1883 {1-[[5-[2-(5-chloro-o-anisamido)ethyl]-2-methoxyphenyl]sulfonyl]-3-methylthiourea}, has been considered as a selective sarcolemmal (i.e. SUR2A-dependent) K(ATP) channel inhibitor. However, it is not clear whether HMR 1098 would preferentially inhibit ventricular K(ATP) channels over atrial K(ATP) channels. To test this, we used whole-cell patch clamp techniques on mouse atrial and ventricular myocytes as well as (86)Rb(+) efflux assays and excised inside-out patch clamp techniques on Kir6.2/SUR1 and Kir6.2/SUR2A channels heterologously expressed in COSm6 cells. In mouse atrial myocytes, both spontaneously activated and diazoxide-activated K(ATP) currents were effectively inhibited by 10 μM HMR 1098. By contrast, in ventricular myocytes, pinacidil-activated K(ATP) currents were inhibited by HMR 1098 at a high concentration (100 μM) but not at a low concentration (10 μM). Consistent with this finding, HMR 1098 inhibits (86)Rb(+) effluxes through Kir6.2/SUR1 more effectively than Kir6.2/SUR2A channels in COSm6 cells. In excised inside-out patches, HMR 1098 inhibited Kir6.2/SUR1 channels more effectively, particularly in the presence of MgADP and MgATP (mimicking physiological stimulation). Finally, dose-dependent enhancement of insulin secretion from pancreatic islets and decrease of blood glucose level confirm that HMR 1098 is an inhibitor of Kir6.2/SUR1-composed K(ATP) channels.

    Li, Bin; Liu, Jiping; Shi, Lihong

    2008-12-01

    Geo-ontology, a kind of domain ontology, is used to make the knowledge, information and data of concerned geographical science in the abstract to form a series of single object or entity with common cognition. These single object or entity can compose a specific system in some certain way and can be disposed on conception and given specific definition at the same time. Ultimately, these above-mentioned worked results can be expressed in some manners of formalization. The main aim of constructing geo-ontology is to get the knowledge of the domain of geography, and provide the commonly approbatory vocabularies in the domain, as well as give the definite definition about these geographical vocabularies and mutual relations between them in the mode of formalization at different hiberarchy. Consequently, the modeling tool of conception model of describing geographic Information System at the hiberarchy of semantic meaning and knowledge can be provided to solve the semantic conception of information exchange in geographical space and make them possess the comparatively possible characters of accuracy, maturity and universality, etc. In fact, some experiments have been made to validate geo-ontology. During the course of studying, Geo-ontology oriented to flood can be described and constructed by making the method based on geo-spatial affairs to serve the governmental departments at all levels to deal with flood. Thereinto, intelligent retrieve and service based on geoontology of disaster are main functions known from the traditional manner by using keywords. For instance, the function of dealing with disaster information based on geo-ontology can be provided when a supposed flood happened in a certain city. The correlative officers can input some words, such as "city name, flood", which have been realized semantic label, to get the information they needed when they browse different websites. The information, including basic geographical information and flood distributing

    The famous Lafarge affair which took place in Tulle (Corrèze, France) in 1840, has never ceased to interest the general public because some doubts have remained even after the pronunciation of the judgment. Another hypothesis than arsenicum poisoning has been formulated in 1980 by Professor P. Lepine who believes in a paratyphoid fever occuring after food poisoning. This assumption and the discovery of exceptional family documents in 2004 by Edouard de Lamaze, a distant cousin of Emma Pontier, the confidante of Marie Lafarge, sheds a new light on this mysterious affair.

    Kraepelin and Freud have indirectly, via Max Isserlin and Carl Gustav Jung, disputed about their completely different blueprints of psychiatric or psychological disturbances. Mainly in the Isserlin-affaire the dispute reached personal and bitter forms. In this affair Bleuler sided with Kraepelin. In the end of the dispute Bleuler just as Jung had separated from Freud, if in different ways and with different motivations. The discussion between Kraepelin-Isserlin on the one side and Freud on the other faded away. The course of the dispute, which mainly the psychoanalytic literature alludes to frequently, is being delineated here for the first time.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Sébastien Goudeau

    2017-01-01

    Full Text Available Until recently, social class has been rarely studied in psychology, and when it was taken into account it was rather as a control demographic variable than as a variable of interest. The aim of this paper is to propose an integrated review of recent research in social psychology that examines how social class influences psychological functioning and behavior. This literature conceptualizes social class as a context of socialization that modulates access to resources, which shapes individuals ways of thinking, feeling and acting. We present three approaches that respectively focus on three distinct aspects of the social class context – economic, symbolic or cultural resources – and describe how these resources impact attentional focus, orientation towards the self or the environment and ways to define oneself as an individual. We review the supporting empirical evidence sustaining these approaches and discuss the relevance of the indicators used to measure social class (income, employment, level of education, perceived rank. Finally, we argue that an experimental social psychology of social class is particularly needed as it allows, through the manipulation of processes, to identify the mechanisms by which social class influences psychological functioning and behavior. Résumé Jusqu’à récemment, la classe sociale était peu étudiée en psychologie, et lorsqu’elle était prise en compte, c’était plutôt comme une variable démographique à contrôler que comme variable d’intérêt.

    2006-06-01

    Full Text Available Dans le totalitarisme doux étendant son voile sirupeux sur des masses inquiètes, l’on sait que les divers technocrates assoient leur pouvoir en entretenant la crainte. Ce qui n’est pas très compliqué, tant la peur de l’ombre, la peur de son ombre travaille tout un chacun. Si l’on doit caractériser l’époque, c’est bien le terme de lâcheté généralisée qui vient, immédiatement, à l’esprit. L’on sait que le virus de la grippe aviaire ne peut infecter l’homme que par contact direct et prolongé. Par exemple, boire l’eau d’un marais infecté de fiente d’oiseaux contaminés ou forniquer avec une poule atteinte de ce mal. De même, le danger de pandémie ne pourrait advenir que s’il y avait conjonction avec la grippe humaine. Ainsi, les virologues considèrent qu’il faudrait plusieurs centaines de personnes infectées par la grippe aviaire, dans un milieu lui-même en pleine épidémie de grippe humaine pour qu’il y ait un danger réel d’infection généralisée. Comme on le voit le risque est grand! Mais là n’est pas le problème. Il suffit, pour nos technocrates, que l’imaginaire de l’insécurité soit là. Ils y trouvent une raison d’être. Ils peuvent, savamment, jouer les utilités. On sait que de tous temps, c’est en misant sur une angoisse diffuse que les divers pouvoirs ont assis leur légitimité. En fait ce qui est à prendre au sérieux, ce sont les hystéries collectives. La chute spectaculaire de la consommation de volailles de toutes sortes en témoigne. Souvenons-nous aussi que n’est pas loin le temps où la même suspicion planait sur la viande bovine! Trêve de plaisanterie! Actualisons l’apologue. Ainsi l’émotion provoquée par le «double scandale» qui frapperait le C.N.R.S ne manque pas de susciter inquiétudes et interrogations. En terme d’épidémiologie bien entendu.

    Le developpement des codes et de normes bases sur une methodologie scientifique requiert la capacite de predire l'etendue inflammable de deversements gazeux d'hydrogene sous differentes conditions. Des etudes anterieures ont deja etabli des modeles bases sur les lois de conservation de la mecanique des fluides basees sur des correlations experimentales qui permettent de predire la decroissance de la concentration et de la vitesse d'un gaz le long de l'axe d'un jet libre vertical. Cette etude s'interesse aux effets de proximite a une surface horizontale parallele sur un jet turbulent. Nous nous interessons a son impact sur l'etendue du champ de la concentration et sur l'enveloppe inflammable en particulier. Cette etude est comparative : l'hydrogene est compare au methane. Ceci permet de degager l'influence des effets de difference de la densite sur le comportement du jet, et de comparer le comportement de l'hydrogene aux correlations experimentales, qui ont ete essentiellement etablies pour le methane. Un modele decrivant l'evolution spatio-temporelle du champ de concentration du gaz dilue est propose, base sur la mecanique des fluides computationnelle. Cette approche permet de varier systematiquement les conditions aux frontieres (proximite du jet a la surface, par exemple) et de connaitre en detail les proprietes de l'ecoulement. Le modele est implemente dans le code de simulations par volumes finis de FLUENT. Les resultats des simulations sont compares avec les lois de similitudes decoulant de la theorie des jets d'ecoulements turbulents libres ainsi qu'avec les resultats experimentaux disponibles. L'effet de la difference des masses molaires des constituantes du jet et des constituantes du milieu de dispersion est egalement etudie dans le contexte du comportement d'echelle de la region developpee du jet.

    Full Text Available Este artículo tiene como objetivo proponer algunos caminos hacia un ámbito que hemos llamado simbólicamente una “Psicología Social Comunitaria del Sur”, es decir una disciplina que deje atrás los planteamientos venidos desde los países desarrollados, dado que alojan principalmente una mirada eurocéntrica. La referencia del Sur, es una propuesta metafórica, que no tiene un asidero geográfico, sino que apela a un otro, los del Sur, que significan la relación entre países de una manera diferente, incorporando a todos aquellas poblaciones, países, comunidades, independientes de su ubicación en el globo, que no se sienten incluidos en la categoría de países industrializados, modernos, autodenominados del norte. Desde la visibilización en América Latina de movimientos sociales asociados a comunidades indígenas, afrodescendientes y otras, la disciplina debiera reconfigurarse cualitativamente de modo que dé cuenta de estas nuevas realidades. Por un lado, algunas propuestas señalan acentuar la definición del concepto de comunidad desde una óptica más relacional. Es decir, entender comunidad como una matriz de cosmovisiones de mundo, la cual se articula con otras comunidades en una determinación mutua. Por otro lado, la intervención comunitaria ya debiera dejar atrás la solución de problemas que promuevan el progreso y el bienestar occidental, sino dirigirse más bien a trabajar la subjetividad, en el sentido de deconstruir la colonización del saber, para luego fortalecer la interpretación que hace cada comunidad desde su propia particularidad y cosmovisión situada. Finalmente, otra línea a sugerir es poner énfasis en un tipo de transformación social dirigida a la construcción de otra epistemología, que incorpore la interculturalidad, la plurinacionalidad, los derechos colectivos y por último una temática hoy día presente y en debate, el buen vivir.

  12. La sodomie dans l’affaire Théophile de Viau : questions de genre et de sexualité dans la France du premier xviie siècle

    Full Text Available L’affaire Théophile est source de malentendus. Alors que l’historiographie du libertinage, en se concentrant sur le libertinage érudit a fini par oublier que la sodomie était un enjeu majeur du procès, les historiens de la répression homosexuelle abordent les relations sexuelles entre hommes dans une perspective essentialiste, gommant toute distinction entre sodomie au xviie siècle et homosexualité à l’époque contemporaine. Il s’agit donc la première partie de cet article de souligner que la sodomie est au cœur de l’affaire à la fois comme objet de représentation littéraire et comme pratique illicite. La seconde partie consiste dans une historicisation des discours ayant trait aux relations sexuelles entre hommes, qui montre qu’on ne saurait confondre « homosexualité masculine » et « sodomie ». Celle-ci désigne en effet des rapports anaux aussi bien entre hommes et femmes qu’entre hommes seuls ; lorsque la notion est mobilisée pour renvoyer à des relations anales entre hommes, elle ne constitue pas pour autant une orientation sexuelle ; en tant que concept issu de la théologie, elle ne relève pas de la sexualité ; aucune déviation de genre ne lui est associée. Dans une troisième partie, il s’agit de montrer que la notion de sodomie ne doit pas nous conduire à ignorer les autres discours pouvant porter sur les relations sexuelles entre hommes dans la France du premier xviie siècle et qu’à ce titre, on ne saurait se suffire de cette catégorie pour aborder la question. Bref, cet article a pour but de poser les premiers jalons d’une histoire de l’homosexualité masculine dans la France du xviie siècle d’un point de vue historiciste, sinon constructionniste.Sodomy in the Theophile de Viau affair: questions of gender and sexuality in early modern France.There is a puzzling misunderstanding about the Theophile affair.

    La agresión occidental a la futura Venezuela supuso, entre otras muchas cosas, que quienes la rechazaron, africanos que no querían ser esclavos, nativos huyendo del acoso o blancos refractarios, organizaran una sociedad cimarrona en el Llano. Cuadrúpedos huidos también del norte incrementaron la oferta de herbívoros cazables e implicaron, con los equinos, mayor autonomía y capacidad defensiva. También pensaron en el sur, por motivos antagónicos, quienes descendieron a capturar indígenas para venderlos como esclavos y quienes vieron en los orejanos la posibilidad de organizar una ganadería excedentaria. Estos últimos, miembros de la oligarquía, resolvieron que debían ocupar las sabanas por tres razones: aumentar su control sobre los pastos, liquidar competidores y extirpar un muy mal ejemplo, el de las personas libres de la cimarronera. El conflicto que a finales del siglo XVIII devendría fatal, en las dos acepciones de la palabra, se fraguó ya a mediados del siglo XVII.

    D'où vient l'univers ? Et d'où vient qu'il y a un univers ? Irrépressiblement, ces questions se posent à nous. Et dès qu'un discours prétend nous éclairer, nous tendons l'oreille, avides d'entendre l'écho du tout premier signal : les accélérateurs de particules vont bientôt nous révéler l'origine de l'univers en produisant des "big bang sous terre" ; les données recueillies par le satellite Planck nous dévoiler le "visage de Dieu" ; certains disent même qu'en vertu de la loi de la gravitation l'univers a pu se créer de lui-même, à partir de rien... Le grand dévoilement ne serait donc devenu qu'une affaire d'ultimes petits pas ? Rien n'est moins sûr... Car de quoi parle la physique quand elle parle "d'origine" ? Qu'est-ce que les théories actuelles sont réellement en mesure de nous révéler ? A bien les examiner, les perspectives que nous offre la cosmologie contemporaine sont plus vertigineuses encore que tout ce que nous avons imaginé : l'univers a-t-il jamais commencé ?

    A French decree of February 3. 2005, allowed the Iodine 125 seeds from several companies to be reimbursed after a permanent implantation brachytherapy for a prostate cancer. Within this frame, the French 'Comite economique des produits de sante' (C.E.P.S.; Economic committee for health products) made mandatory the annual writing and publication of a follow-up study with three main aims; make sure that the seeds were used for prostate cancer patients with criteria corresponding to the national recommendations, analyze the quality of the dosimetric data, and report all side effects, complications and possible accidents. We therefore report here a clinical and dosimetric analysis of 469 patient cases treated in France in nine centers in 2005 with the Iodine 125 IsoSeed Bebig. This analysis shows that: 1) The national recommendations for selecting patients for exclusive prostate brachytherapy have been taken into account in 97% of the cases; 2) The dosimetric quality criteria totally fulfilled the recommendations in a large majority of cases; the intra-operative D90 was found to be superior to 145 Gy in 98% of the patients, and the intra-operative V100 was superior to 95% in 96% of the cases; 3) The early toxicity (mainly urinary) was found to be at the lower range of what is reported in the literature, with in particular a retention rate of 2.4%.

  3. Redox regulation of SurR by protein disulfide oxidoreductase in Thermococcus onnurineus NA1.

    Protein disulfide oxidoreductases are redox enzymes that catalyze thiol-disulfide exchange reactions. These enzymes include thioredoxins, glutaredoxins, protein disulfide isomerases, disulfide bond formation A (DsbA) proteins, and Pyrococcus furiosus protein disulfide oxidoreductase (PfPDO) homologues. In the genome of a hyperthermophilic archaeon, Thermococcus onnurineus NA1, the genes encoding one PfPDO homologue (TON_0319, Pdo) and three more thioredoxin- or glutaredoxin-like proteins (TON_0470, TON_0472, TON_0834) were identified. All except TON_0470 were recombinantly expressed and purified. Three purified proteins were reduced by a thioredoxin reductase (TrxR), indicating that each protein can form redox complex with TrxR. SurR, a transcription factor involved in the sulfur response, was tested for a protein target of a TrxR-redoxin system and only Pdo was identified to be capable of catalyzing the reduction of SurR. Electromobility shift assay demonstrated that SurR reduced by the TrxR-Pdo system could bind to the DNA probe with the SurR-binding motif, GTTttgAAC. In this study, we present the TrxR-Pdo couple as a redox-regulator for SurR in T. onnurineus NA1.

    Current policies governing the Departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs physical examination programs are out of step with current evidence-based medical practice. Replacing periodic and other routine physical examination types with annual preventive health assessments would afford our service members additional health benefit at reduced cost. Additionally, the Departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs repeat the physical examination process at separation and have been unable to reconcile their respective disability evaluation systems to reduce duplication and waste. A clear, coherent, and coordinated strategy to improve the relevance and utility of our physical examination programs is long overdue. This article discusses existing physical examination programs and proposes a model for a new integrative physical examination program based on need, science, and common sense.

  10. Interactions between medical residents and drug companies: a national survey after the Mediator® affair.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    François Montastruc

    Full Text Available BACKGROUND: The present study aimed to describe exposure and attitudes of French medical residents towards pharmaceutical industry. The study was performed shortly after the Mediator affair which revealed several serious conflicts of interest inside the French health system. METHODS AND FINDINGS: A cross-sectional study was implemented among residents from 6 French medical faculties. Independent education in pharmacology, attitudes towards the practices of pharmaceutical sales representatives, opinions concerning the pharmaceutical industry, quality of information provided by the pharmaceutical industry, and opinions about pharmaceutical company sponsorship were investigated through a web-based questionnaire. We also assessed potential changes in resident attitudes following the Mediator affair. The mean value of exposure to drug companies was 1.9 times per month. Global opinions towards drug company information were negative for 42.7% of the residents and positive for only 8.2%. Surprisingly, 81.6% of residents claimed that they had not changed their practices regarding drug information since the Mediator affair. Multivariate analyses found that residents in anesthesiology were less likely to be exposed than others (OR = 0.17 CI95% [0.05-0.61], exposure was significantly higher at the beginning of residence (p<0.001 and residents who had a more positive opinion were more frequently exposed to drug companies (OR = 2.12 CI95% [1.07-4.22]. CONCLUSIONS: Resident exposure to drug companies is around 1 contact every 2 weeks. Global opinion towards drug information provided by pharmaceutical companies was negative for around 1 out of 2 residents. In contrast, residents tend to consider the influences of the Mediator affair on their practice as relatively low. This survey enabled us to identify profiles of residents who are obviously less exposed to pharmaceutical industry. Current regulatory provisions are not sufficient, indicating that

D’un point de vue méthodologique, nous avons réalisé une enquête quantitative à partir d’un classement typologique opéré sur 221 événements couverts par les utilisateurs du site ainsi que des entretiens semi-directifs auprès de huit acteurs du processus de circulation des images. Cet article examine tout d’abord l’évolution des représentations de l’actualité saisies par des amateurs dans des conditions particulières de production. Il semble que les visuels reflètent une actualité programmée et circonscrite dans l’espace (France et Europe. On note en effet, la faible variété d’évènements captés et la domination d’un point de vue « occidentalo-centré ». Nous abordons ensuite, dans une démarche sociologique d’étude des métiers et des pratiques professionnelles, les normes journalistiques entrant en jeu dans le travail de sélection des faits et d’éditorialisation mené par la rédaction et, ce faisant, analysons la diversification des activités journalistiques. Il apparaît, après observation des trajectoires des documents sur Citizenside, que les conditions de leur circulation sont toujours sous l’emprise des professionnels. Ces derniers « travaillent » les images, leur ajoutent un cadre et cherchent à signer toujours davantage leur appartenance au monde de l’information.

    Full Text Available Le développement durable se voulait un projet de civilisation, mais le concept a vite été fragilisé par la suprématie des intérêts économiques, et par l’enfermement dans des préoccupations d’ordre environnemental. Dans la période de crise actuelle, on s’interroge : comment veut-on vivre ? avec quelles valeurs ? dans quelles villes et dans quels territoires? Il s’agit ici de voir comment les arts et la culture peuvent contribuer à cet objectif du « vivre ensemble ». Au-delà de positionnements opportunistes, on observe qu’une meilleure prise en compte de la culture, dans ses différentes acceptions, peut promouvoir des approches transversales, reposant sur les valeurs de solidarité, de respect de la diversité culturelle, de démocratie locale et de citoyenneté, et remettre ainsi les habitants au cœur des politiques et des projets de territoires. La recomposition du paysage culturel que l’on observe en France, notamment autour des agendas 21 de la culture et des nouveaux territoires de l’art, témoigne de la part d’artistes, élus et autres professionnels de la culture d’une volonté de travailler au plus près de la population afin de monter des projets qui remettent la culture au cœur des politiques locales.Sustainable development was supposed to be a “civilization” concept, but the power of the economic interests and the pressure of the environmental issues have fragilized the concept. With the recent world crisis, many questions now arise: we must change our model, but how do we want to live, with which values and indicators, in what kind of towns and territories? In this article we propose to analyse how cultural development can help to reach the aim of “living together”. Indeed, taking into account cultural diversity and initiating local activities enables to develop new kinds of projects with the inhabitants, and to promote essential values such as local democracy, solidarity, tolerance

    Full Text Available Se describe por primera vez la petrografía y geoquímica de unidades volcánicas terciarias del sur de la provincia de Mendoza. Se analizan la nomenclatura estratigráfica y sus edades, estableciéndose una secuencia de eventos magmáticos ocurridos durante el Neógeno, comenzando con la evolución de un retro-arco, seguido por un arco magmático más joven. Se intenta respetar la nomenclatura estratigráfica existente, sin embargo, la definición de unidades se ha realizado sobre la base de las edades radimétricas y sus edades de cristalización, más sobre sus características petrográficas. La actividad magmática se extiende desde el Oligoceno superior al Mioceno superior, correspondiendo a el Ciclo Eruptivo Molle y el Ciclo Eruptivo Huincán, y comenzó con un episodio magmático basáltico inicial (CEM. Esta actividad se generó en la corteza inferior dominada por la concentración de gabros, dioritas y rocas híbridas (granulitas máficas. Debido a un engrosamiento de la corteza como consecuencia de la actividad tectónica durante Mioceno superior o por el estancamiento de magmas o por la combinación de ambos procesos, la formación de granulitas granatíferas resultó un producto distintivo de la corteza inferior. Con el desarrollo del arco magmático (CEH en el Mioceno superior, los magmas ascendieron desde la fuente mantélica, encontrándose con una corteza inferior granatífera, perdiendo capacidad de ascenso por falta de contraste de densidades, produciéndose una fusión extendida, la homogeinización y el ascenso, en equilibrio con la corteza baja, proceso que caracteriza el volcanismo de un arco magmático.

    High-altitude residents have lower mortality rates for ischaemic heart disease and this is ascribed to cardiac gene remodelling by chronic hypoxia. SUR2A is a cardioprotective ABC protein serving as a subunit of sarcolemmal ATP-sensitive K(+) channels. The purpose of this study was to determine whether SUR2A is regulated by mild hypoxia in vivo and to elucidate the underlying mechanism. Mice were exposed to either 21% (control) or 18% (mild hypoxia) oxygen for 24h. Exposure to 18% oxygen did not affect partial pressure of O(2) (PO(2)) and CO(2) (PCO(2)) in the blood, haematocrit or level of ATP in the heart. However, hypoxia increased myocardial lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) and lactate as well as NAD(+) without affecting total NAD. SUR2A levels were significantly increased as well as myocardial resistance to ischaemia-reperfusion. Exposure to 18% oxygen did not phosphorylate extracellular signal regulated kinases (ERK1/2) or AMP activated protein kinase (AMPK), but it phosphorylated protein kinase B (Akt). An inhibitor of phosphoinositide 3-kinases (PI3K), LY294002 (0.2mg/mouse), abolished all observed effects of hypoxia. LDH inhibitors, galloflavin (50 μM) and sodium oxamate (80 mM) significantly decreased levels of SUR2A in heart embryonic H9c2 cells, while inactive mutant LDH form, gly193-M-LDH increased cellular sensitivity towards stress induced by 2,4-dinitrophenol (10mM). Treatment of H9c2 cells with sodium lactate (30 mM) increased intracellular lactate, but did not affect LDH activity or SUR2A levels. We conclude that PI3K/Akt signalling pathway and LDH play a crucial role in increase of cardiac SUR2A induced by in vivo exposure to 18% oxygen.

    Full Text Available Le suivi par radiotélémétrie de la migration anadrome de 114 saumons atlantiques sur le Gave de Pau, réalisé de 1995 à 1997, a permis d'étudier l'impact de 31 des 37 obstacles érigés sur l'axe de migration. Cinq obstacles majeurs ont été identifiés en regard de leur faible perméabilité et/ou des retards qu'ils induisent ainsi que de leur position sur l'axe. La transparence de ces 5 aménagements permettrait à plus de 80 % (contre seulement 13 % dans la situation actuelle des saumons de parvenir sur de bonnes zones de frayères. L'accumulation des retards au niveau de chaque obstacle peut empêcher une proportion non négligeable des poissons de parvenir à temps sur les meilleures zones de frayères, notamment ceux qui se présentent à l'automne sur le gave, ou ceux qui, ralentis par les obstacles, effectuent un arrêt estival sur la partie aval du cours d'eau. Les seuils de stabilisation en enrochements de faible hauteur ( 2,5 m supérieure ont eu des impacts variables, imputables en grande partie au type de passe à poissons. Les passes à bassins et les rivières de contournement ont été les dispositifs de franchissement les plus performants. Les passés à ralentisseurs à chevrons épais se sont révélées peu performantes en raison de leur faible débit d'alimentation et de leur grande sensibilité aux variations des niveaux d'eau amont. L'impact des aménagements hydroélectriques sans dérivation dépend de l'emplacement de l'entrée de la passe à poissons et de son débit d'alimentation : des effets minimums sur la migration ont été observés lorsque les ouvrages étaient équipés d'un dispositif mobilisant des débits importants (2-4 m3/s et dont l'entrée se situait dans le canal de fuite.

    Full Text Available Fusarium es un género de hongo complejo con especies que se adaptan a un amplio rango de habitats. ( Summerell et al.2001. Aunque hay docenas de especies de Fusarium, sólo un número limitado son responsables de la contaminación por micotoxinas en alimentos y raciones ( Marasas et al.1984b. Parte de estas micotoxinas son denominadas tricotecenos , involucrando mayoritariamente al deoxinivalenol (DON, sus derivados acetilados (3-acetyldeoxinivalenol y 15 acetildeoxinivalenol, T2,  HT2 y nivalenol. Según JECFA, los estudios realizados demuestran que el DON aparece predominantemente en granos tales como trigo, cebada, avena, centeno y maíz, y menos frecuentemente en arroz y sorgo. En la mayoría de las regiones del mundo, incluyendo el Cono Sur, Fusarium graminearum es el mayor agente causal de enfermedades de Fusaium en granos y cereales denominadas: Fusarium Head Blight en cereales y  Giberella ear rot en maíz. Se ha encontrado una relación directa entre la incidencia de Fusarium Head Blight y la contaminación de trigo con DON. La incidencia de la enfermedad esta afectada por las condiciones climáticas de lluvia y humedad en el período de la floración. El factor más crítico es el momento de la lluvia más que la cantidad. F. graminearum crece a una temperatura óptima de 25°C y a una actividad de agua de 0.88.Ejemplo de las consecuencias de Fusarium Head Blight en trigo, es lo ocurrido en la zafra 2001-2002 en Uruguay.  El trigo nacional sufrió contaminación con la consecuente producción de DON en valores comprometedores para la salud, tanto humana como animal.

    Full Text Available In this paper, we propose a comparative analysis of five national models of cultural policy. The four first ones constitute Southern Europe: Greece, Italy, Portugal and Spain. The fifth one is France. These countries share a tradition of direct intervention in the cultural field, contrary to anglo-saxon or Scandinavian countries. The aim of such a comparison is to assess convergences but also disparities between these countries, in spite of their common traditions. We focus on the historical paths, the ways of institutionalization of the cultural public domain, and the different kinds of territorial management of cultural policies. France, which is often considered as a singular model the other countries would have try to imitate, is also analyzed in a comparative perspective. The assessment of convergences and divergences allows, in conclusion, to establish the common goals that share these five countries, as well as the major part of occidental countries in order to define the cultural policy for the 21st century.En este artículo ofrecemos un análisis comparado de cinco modelos nacionales de política cultural.

Il commence en présentant un panorama de ses travaux plus actuels et souligne ensuite le rôle décisif de Foucault dans le établissement de une nouvelle relation entre le discours et l´histoire. Dans cette direction, il donne des détails sur quelques influences épistémologiques de la pensée foucaultienne qui viennent surtout de Nietzsche et Koselleck. Comme un grand étudiant de la pensée marxiste, Guilhaumou parle aussi sur le concept de l´ideologie et ses plusières métamorphoses conceptuelles dans autres champs jusqu´au moment de parler sur la question du pouvoir. Il parle quand même sur la problématique de l´analyse des images dans l´Analyse du Discours, une question favorable pour beaucoup des analystes du discours qui s´occupent avec le syncrétisme sémiotique des ses objets dans l´actualité. Enfin, il indique l´existence de une théorie du discours diluée dans la pensée du philosophe.

    Full Text Available Background: The distribution of Ficus sur includes most of tropical Africa, but whilst this species was suspected to occur in Namibia, this has not been verified. Gymnanthemum coloratum is a tropical African savannah shrub or tree that has been recorded for Botswana, Swaziland and South Africa, but which has not previously been recorded for Namibia.Objectives: To formally document the first records of two plant species from Namibia and provide habitat details of the localities from which these species were recorded.Method: The data presented have resulted from botanical expeditions to the poorly known Baynes Mountains in the Koakoveld region of Namibia. Specimens of the two species in the National Herbarium, Pretoria were examined to verify the identity in the case of G. coloratum, and to document additional records in Namibia for F. sur.Results: Ficus sur was recorded from two localities, and a third locality based on a specimen in the National Herbarium, Pretoria, was verified. Gymnanthemum coloratum, a member of the Asteraceae, was recorded from a single locality.Conclusion: The fact that F. sur was collected at more than one location in the Kaokoveld suggests that it is probably more widespread in suitable microhabitats. Ficus sur also occurs further north in Angola, suggesting that the Kaokoveld plants represent a cross-border outlier of the much more widespread Angolan population. Gymnanthemum coloratum was only recorded from the one locality in the Koakoveld. The species also occurs in Angola, which suggests that the Kaokoveld plant represents a cross-border outlier of the population in that country.

    This study examined the relationship between conscientiousness and mortality over 18 years and whether smoking behavior mediated this relationship. We utilized data from the Veterans Affairs Normative Aging Study on 1349 men who completed the Goldberg (1992) adjectival markers of the Big Five. Over the 18-year follow-up, 547 (41%) participants died. Through proportional hazards modeling in a structural equation modeling framework, we found that higher levels of conscientiousness significantly predicted longer life, and that this effect was mediated by current smoking status at baseline. Methodologically, we also demonstrate the effectiveness of using a structural equation modeling framework to evaluate mediation when using a censored outcome such as mortality.

    We studied 1,292 Iraq and Afghanistan War veterans who participated in a clinical trial of expressive writing to estimate the prevalence of perceived reintegration difficulty and compare Veterans Affairs (VA) healthcare users to nonusers in terms of demographic and clinical characteristics. About half of participants perceived reintegration difficulty. VA users and nonusers differed in age and military background. Levels of mental and physical problems were higher in VA users. In multivariate analysis, military service variables and probable traumatic brain injury independently predicted VA use. Findings demonstrate the importance of research comparing VA users to nonusers to understand veteran healthcare needs.

  11. A very Freudian affair: Erich Fromm, Peter Swales and the future of psychoanalytic historiography.

    2008-01-01

    Despite steadfast denials by Ernest Jones, Peter Gay and Paul Roazen (among others), a recent discovery by Franz Maciejewski renders it reasonably certain that Freud had an affair with his sister-in-law, Minna Bernays. While this discovery vindicates certain claims made by the controversial Freud scholar, Peter Swales, other claims of his vis-a-vis Freud's personality and ideas are open to doubt. Meanwhile, the reception of Swales's ideas, and indeed the whole controversy about Freud's love life, provide ample confirmation of many of Erich Fromm's prescient theses about Freud's personality and the politics and historiography of psychoanalysis.

    2015-09-01

    Full Text Available Despite its apparent distance from the core topics of economics, economists have been attracted to, and deeply engaged in, research about teen fertility for more than a quarter century. Research has focused on two broad, interrelated issues: the socio-economic consequences of a teen birth and the socio-economic causes of a teen birth. In researching these issues, economists have drawn on and extended basic concepts in economic theory and in applied statistical research. I review those literatures for a non-economist audience and conclude that the research love affair has substantially benefited both parties, although definitive answers to causes and consequences are still elusive.

  14. Souci du social et action publique sur mesure

    2008-10-01

    Full Text Available L’engagement dans la lutte contre les problèmes sociaux s’est transformé. Avec l’individualisation et la territorialisation du traitement public des problèmes sociaux, se pose de plus en plus nettement la question d’une action publique de proximité, intersubjective. Mais plutôt que de renvoyer immédiatement les raisons de cette action publique sur mesure à une critique de la psychologisation des rapports sociaux ou du déclin des institutions, il s’agit de l’analyser comme une expérience publique, avec son lot d’actions et d’affects, de convictions et d’inquiétudes, de ressources et de préoccupations. La notion de souci s’impose alors pour tenir ce double mouvement de l’engagement, entre agir et subir, des épreuves qui nous conduisent dans l’action aux attentes qui nous y maintiennent. À partir de plusieurs exemples de formation de problèmes sociaux, l’article décline alors le souci des acteurs dans deux directions. D’une part, le souci de soi est analysé comme un engagement public au sens d’un travail d’orientation de soi dans un monde incertain via la reprise d’expériences sociales négatives. D’autre part, le souci commun est envisagé comme une « communauté de charge », c’est-à-dire comme un collectif d’action publique fondé non pas à partir de propriétés communes mais à partir d’affects partagés.“Concern” in the social sphere and public action adapted to the client: singular and critical public experience of social problemsCommitment in the struggle against social problems has changed. Along with the individualisation and territorial decentralisation of the public treatment of social problems, the question of very local and intersubjective public action has come more and more into focus.

    Full Text Available Oradour-sur-Glane (France is the memorial site of a massacre perpetrated by the Second SS Panzer Division Das Reich on June 10th, 1944. It preserves the memory of the 642 people slaughtered there, including 18 Spanish refugees. In 1945, the French State, led by General de Gaulle, decided to preserve the ruins of Oradour-sur- Glane. Since then, a series of commemorative processes have ensued at the site, corresponding to different temporalities. Over time, this site of national memory has been linked both with European memory discourse and with the private memory of exiled Spaniards and, consequently, with the memory of the Spanish Civil War and Francoism. In this article, I analyze the different appropriations and interpretations of the site, focusing in particular on the memory of the exiles. To do so, I will look into the initiatives undertaken between 2008 and 2014, considering both the institutions and the associations related to Oradour-sur-Glane.Oradour-sur-Glane (Francia es el lugar de memoria de una masacre perpetrada por la segunda división blindada S.S.

  1. The colonial identity of wine: the "Leakey Affair" and the Franco-Algerian order of things.

    Strachan, John

    2007-01-01

    This article focuses on the 1905 crisis of French and Algerian viticulture that came to be known as the "Leakey Affair." It explains why metropolitan French observers reacted so strongly to Leakey's contract and subsequent advertising of Algerian wine on the British market, first from a socio-economic perspective, and second by reference to the importance of wine in French culture and identity. The final section of the article explains the response of Algeria's colonists to their metropolitan critics. Throughout, wine is used as a prism through which to explore the nature of identity in modern France and the complex colonial relationship in which the wine industry played such a major role. The Leakey Affair revealed the fragility of colonial cultural formations and the importance of wine as a conduit of ideas, and a symbol for fierce wrangling over identity, belonging, and the nature of empire. What was at stake was no less than the intellectual ownership of a mainstay of France's cultural mythology -- wine -- and the relationship between an imperial power and its colonial world.

    The objective of this study was to define the pattern and time course of use of ED treatments in a Veterans Affairs (VA) medical center and to identify clinical or demographic variables that are associated with the use of second- or third-line ED treatments. We identified 702 men treated for ED at the Greater Los Angeles Veterans Affairs between 2007 and 2013. We extracted demographics, Charlson co-morbidity score, pertinent surgical/medication history as well as use of ED treatments from medical records. On multivariate analysis, age over 65 (OR 1.83, 95% CI: 1.31-2.56) and Charlson co-morbidity score of 1 (OR 1.77, 95% CI: 1.13-2.77) and 2+ (OR 2.07, 95% CI: 1.28-3.36) were significantly associated with use of medicated urethral suppositories for erection (MUSE)/intracorporal injections (ICI) compared with PDE5i/erection devices. Across all men who used second- or third-line treatments, median time until receiving MUSE was 0.6 years and median time until receiving ICI/implant was 2 years. We conclude that men who will ultimately use more invasive ED treatments, such as men with more co-morbidities, tend to have a prolonged treatment course. This information may be incorporated into a shared decision-making model for more efficient treatment of ED.

    The Hwang affair, a dramatic and far reaching instance of scientific fraud, shocked the world. This collective national failure prompted various organizations in Korea, including universities, regulatory agencies, and research associations, to engage in self-criticism and research ethics reforms. This paper aims, first, to document and review research misconduct perpetrated by Hwang and members of his research team, with particular attention to the agencies that failed to regulate and then supervise Hwang's research. The paper then examines the research ethics reforms introduced in the wake of this international scandal. After reviewing American and European research governance structures and policies, policy makers developed a mixed model mindful of its Korean context. The third part of the paper examines how research ethics reform is proactive (a response to shocking scientific misconduct and ensuing external criticism from the press and society) as well as reactive (identification of and adherence to national or international ethics standards). The last part deals with Korean society's response to the Hwang affair, which had the effect of a moral atomic bomb and has led to broad ethical reform in Korean society. We conceptualize this change as ethical modernization, through which the Korean public corrects the failures of a growth-oriented economic model for social progress, and attempts to create a more trustworthy and ethical society.

    We describe a new species of Rhadinella from the Sierra Madre del Sur of Guerrero, Mexico, a region where the genus was previously unknown. This diminutive species is a member of a group of snakes previously allocated in the Rhadinaea godmani group, and more recently transferred to the genus Rhadinella. These snakes may have conspicuous dark longitudinal striping on a pale brown to orange background or may have dark brown to blackish dorsal ground coloration, which mostly or completely obfuscates a pattern of longitudinal striping. The new species is mostly dark with barely discernible slightly paler or darker striping (depending on how striping is interpreted). The closest relative of the new species, on the basis of morphological similarities and biogeography, appears to be Rhadinella donaji which occurs to the east in the Sierra Madre del Sur of Oaxaca about 275 km from the type-locality of the new species.

    L'étude de la rupture d'un acier faiblement allié dans le domaine de la transition ductile fragile a permis de mettre en évidence la présence croissante, avec la température de sollicitation, d'amas d'inclusions de seconde phase sur les surfaces de rupture. On montre, à l'aide de modélisations par éléments finis, que ces amas jouent néanmoins un rôle mineur dans le déclenchement du clivage. En revanche, leur influence sur la propagation de la rupture ductile est importante. On peut alors expliquer l'anisotropie de la résilience en prenant en compte la géométrie des inclusions et leur répartition spatiale.

    Nelson, Peter T; Jicha, Gregory A; Wang, Wang-Xia; Ighodaro, Eseosa; Artiushin, Sergey; Nichols, Colin G; Fardo, David W

    2015-11-01

    The ABCC9 gene and its polypeptide product, SUR2, are increasingly implicated in human neurologic disease, including prevalent diseases of the aged brain. SUR2 proteins are a component of the ATP-sensitive potassium ("KATP") channel, a metabolic sensor for stress and/or hypoxia that has been shown to change in aging. The KATP channel also helps regulate the neurovascular unit. Most brain cell types express SUR2, including neurons, astrocytes, oligodendrocytes, microglia, vascular smooth muscle, pericytes, and endothelial cells. Thus it is not surprising that ABCC9 gene variants are associated with risk for human brain diseases. For example, Cantu syndrome is a result of ABCC9 mutations; we discuss neurologic manifestations of this genetic syndrome. More common brain disorders linked to ABCC9 gene variants include hippocampal sclerosis of aging (HS-Aging), sleep disorders, and depression. HS-Aging is a prevalent neurological disease with pathologic features of both neurodegenerative (aberrant TDP-43) and cerebrovascular (arteriolosclerosis) disease. As to potential therapeutic intervention, the human pharmacopeia features both SUR2 agonists and antagonists, so ABCC9/SUR2 may provide a "druggable target", relevant perhaps to both HS-Aging and Alzheimer's disease. We conclude that more work is required to better understand the roles of ABCC9/SUR2 in the human brain during health and disease conditions.

    Acinetobacter baumannii is a Gram-negative bacillus that causes nosocomial infections, such as bacteremia, pneumonia, and meningitis and urinary tract and wound infections. In the present study, the surface antigen protein 1 (SurA1) gene of A. baumannii strain CCGGD201101 was identified, cloned and expressed, and then its roles in fitness and virulence were investigated. Virulence was observed in the human lung cancer cell lines A549 and HEp-2 at one week after treatment with recombinant SurA1. One isogenic SurA1 knock-out strain, GR0015, which was derived from the A. baumannii strain CCGGD201101 isolated from diseased chicks in a previous study, highlighted the effect of SurA1 on fitness and growth. Its growth rate in LB broth and killing activity in human sera were significantly decreased compared with strain CCGGD201101. In the Galleria mellonella insect model, the isogenic SurA1 knock-out strain exhibited a lower survival rate and decreased dissemination. These results suggest that SurA1 plays an important role in the fitness and virulence of A. baumannii.

    Full Text Available La liebre europea fue introducida entre finales del siglo XIX y comienzos del siglo XX a Argentina y Chile, y desde entonces ha avanzado a través de América del Sur. En 1983 la liebre había alcanzado el sur de Brasil, el departamento de Tarija en el sur de Bolivia y el río Copiapó en Chile, encontrándose ausente en el Perú. En los años 2002 y 2004 se observó varios ejemplares de liebre en estado silvestre en los departamentos peruanos de Tacna y Arequipa, hasta una altitud de 4300 m. Según entrevistas hechas a pobladores de esas zonas, la liebre habría llegado al Perú entre los años 1995 y 1998, lo que significa una velocidad de dispersión mínima de 44,34 km/año partiendo de Tarija. Los entrevistados dijeron no dar uso a la liebre y que ésta les trae problemas al consumir la vegetación. La presente nota es una alerta sobre la llegada de la liebre europea al Perú y los posibles efectos de su presencia.

    Bondarko defines and study the notion of weight structures, adjacent to the notion of t-structure which, essentially, we lose control for filtrations (it's not unique). He construct a weight structure on the category of Voevodsky motives with rational coefficients defined over a field, whose heart is the category of Chow motives. In this article, we "extended" this weight structure to the category of Beilinson motives natural generalization of Voevodsky motives with rational coefficients, introduced and studied by Denis-Charles Cisinski et Fr\\'ed\\'eric D\\'eglise. The heart of this weight structure contains (possibly strictly) Chow motives. ----- Bondarko d\\'efinit et \\'etudie la notion de structure de poids, notion adjacente \\`a celle de t-structure dont, essentiellement, on perd le contr\\^ole sur la filtration (elle n'est pas unique).

  9. Etude de la structure interne du nucleon en diffusion profondement inelastique de muons sur cibles fixes.

    CERN Document Server

    Granier, Thierry

    Dans ce mémoire est présentée l'analyse, dans le but de l'extraction des fonctions de structure, d'une partie des données de diffusion profondément inélastique de muons sur cibles fixes d'hydrogène et de detérium obtenues dans l'expérience NMC (New Muon Collaboration) du CERN. Les fonctions de structure, à partir desquelles s'exprime la probabilité de diffusion à un certain angle et une certaine énergie, contiennent de l'information sur la structure interne du nucléon, plus précisément sur la distribution en énergie des quarks à l'intérieur de celui-ci. L'étude de la variation des fonctions de structure avec le degré d'inélasticité de la diffusion permet de tester la validité de la chromodynamique quantique, la théorie de jauge des interactions fortes

  12. L’énigme des contraintes grammaticales sur les sujets poyaudins

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Massot Benjamin

    2016-01-01

    Full Text Available Notre contribution fait état de notre étude en cours des sujets du poyaudin, un patois d’oui. D’une part, en poyaudin, tous les syntagmes nominaux ne sont pas éligibles pour la position syntaxique de sujet : ils doivent pour cela être suffisamment définis/topicaux. Les autres syntagmes nominaux, s’ils doivent exprimer le sujet sémantique de la prédication, doivent être insérés dans des structures syntaxiques où ils peuvent apparaitre en position d’objet : comme élément introduit par y a dans une clivée, ou comme sujet réel d’un verbe à la tournure impersonnelle. D’autre part, les syntagmes nominaux sujets sont (très fréquemment redoublés d’un clitique nominatif. Nous proposons alors un ensemble d’hypothèses : (i Les contraintes qui pèsent sur les sujets dépendent crucialement du fait que les syntagmes candidats à la position syntaxique de sujet sont évalués sur une échelle de définitude/ accessibilité/topicalité. (ii Les clitiques nominatifs portent un trait d’accord de type défini/accessible/topical. Ce trait implique que le redoublement clitique du sujet n’est possible que lorsque le sujet est évalué sur l’échelle en question par une valeur compatible avec le trait du clitique nominatif. Ainsi, certains sujets, trop bas sur cette échelle, ne déclenchent pas l’accord par redoublement clitique. (iii Les syntagmes nominaux trop bas sur l’échelle pour être éligibles en position de sujet trouvent une place adéquate dans les clivées et les tournures impersonnelles parce qu’ils s’y trouvent dans des positions syntaxiques d’objets, qui n’ont pas de restriction dans ce sens.

    Full Text Available Les recherches sur l’énonciation, en l’occurrence celles appartenant au courant Ducrot, à l’école dit de Genève comme à l’école dite scandinave (portant le sigle « Scapoline », pour n’en mentionner que quelques-unes, donnent depuis quelques décennies de remarquables résultats portant sur la dimension polyphonique et argumentative du langage, sur le jeu discursif des points de vue et des êtres discursifs, de la prise en charge énonciative et du statut assertif (assertion/présupposition/supposition, comme sur le fonctionnement des différents types de marqueurs dits « discursifs ». La contribution de Henning Nølke, donnée lors du CMLF organisé en 2008 à Paris, brosse brillamment l’historique et l’élaboration ultérieure de ce courant. Nul doute que les résultats de bon nombre de ces recherches appartiendront dorénavant aux acquis descriptifs de notre science, qu’il s’agisse du discours rapporté, de la négation, des marqueurs de par exemple la concession ou la causalité. Cependant, il me semble que cette théorisation énonciative, pour heuristiquement valable qu’elle soit – ce qui est indéniable– rencontre parfois des problèmes lorsqu’elle est confrontée avec d’autres dimensions de la description du sens discursif, et testée dans «... le patient travail de confrontation minutieuse des outils avec le réel (en l’occurrence les textes dont ils sont censés rendre compte » (Alain Rabatel, 2010 : 109.

  14. "Sex in Bed or Sex in the Head?" - A Transatlantic Love Affair

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Becker, Anja

    2003-01-01

    Full Text Available In early 1947, the French philosopher Simone de Beauvoir traveled across the United States. During her four-month voyage she met and fell in love with the then quite famous American novelist Nelson Algren of Chicago. At the time both were in their late thirties. When she had returned to France, she wrote Algren that she had put aside the project she had begun prior to her departure for America (The Other Sex, 1949 and undertaken to write a book about the New World, for "something [had] happened [...] and it was the beginning of love." The journey, she continued, for this reason had to be preserved. Apparently, the passion she had experienced with Algren (it is said that with him she enjoyed sex for the first time in her life, above all had an impact on her primary occupation in life: her writing.In my paper, I look at how de Beauvoir reflected on her affair with Algren in three different works, i.e. her America Day by Day (1947, her novel Les mandarins (1954, and the third volume of her memoirs (1963. All three books were written at different stages of the relationship, and therefore offer quite diverse perspectives that taken together add up to a more comprehensive picture of the affair.When writing America Day by Day, de Beauvoir was deeply in love, and Algren returned this feeling. Yet, Algren does not appear as a predominant figure in the book he inspired; he is hardly mentioned. For, de Beauvoir thought that once she wrote about someone or something, it was lost to her. She consequently had to find a way to write about him-he preoccupied her mind-without actually writing about him. She succeeded in doing so by writing about his America, i.e. the places he showed her. Whatever she sees fascinates her. In fact, this fascination reflects her admiration of Algren rather than of America.By 1954, the romantic phase of the affair was over; a first rupture had occurred. In the novel, de Beauvoir's alter ego Anne from the beginning sees that the

    Chaplains play important roles in caring for Veterans and Service members with mental health problems. As part of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and Department of Defense (DoD) Integrated Mental Health Strategy, we used a sequential approach to examining intersections between chaplaincy and mental health by gathering and building upon: 1) input from key subject matter experts; 2) quantitative data from the VA / DoD Chaplain Survey (N = 2,163; response rate of 75% in VA and 60% in DoD); and 3) qualitative data from site visits to 33 VA and DoD facilities. Findings indicate that chaplains are extensively involved in caring for individuals with mental health problems, yet integration between mental health and chaplaincy is frequently limited due to difficulties between the disciplines in establishing familiarity and trust. We present recommendations for improving integration of services, and we suggest key domains for future research.

    2015-01-01

    The Department of Veterans Affairs Veterans Healthcare Administration (VHA) is supported by one of the largest integrated health care information systems in the United States. The VHA's Corporate Data Warehouse (CDW) was developed in 2006 to accommodate the massive amounts of data being generated from more than 20 years of use and to streamline the process of knowledge discovery to application. This article describes the developments in research associated with the VHA's transition into the world of Big Data analytics through CDW utilization. The majority of studies utilizing the CDW also use at least one other data source. The most commonly occurring topics are pharmacy/medications, systems issues, and weight management/obesity. Despite the potential benefit of data mining techniques to improve patient care and services, the CDW and alternative analytical approaches are underutilized by researchers and clinicians.

  17. Science diplomacy: Investigating the perspective of scholars on politics-science collaboration in international affairs.

    2015-12-31

    Science diplomacy is a widely practiced area of international affairs, but academic research is rather sparse. The role of academia within this field of politics-science interaction has hardly been considered. This article analyzes this scholarly perspective: Based on a literature review, a case study of a German science diplomacy program is used to explore objectives, benefits, and constraints of science diplomacy for participating scholars. While political approaches suggest an ideal world where both sides profit from the collaboration, the findings of the case study point to another conclusion which shows that the interaction of scholars and officials in science diplomacy is far more complex. Thus, the contribution is regarded as both a useful starting point for further research and for a critical reflection of academics and politicians in science diplomacy practice to gauge what can be expected from the collaboration and what cannot.

  18. Parliamentary participation in EU affairs in Austria, Finland and Sweden: Newcomers with different approaches

    Full Text Available The national parliaments in Austria, Finland, and Sweden faced similar challenges as regards to parliamentary participation in EU affairs when their countries became EU members in 1995. They chose different institutional frameworks, where in Austria the respective legal provisions were comparatively rather strong. However, the Austrian parliament rarely makes use of its extensive formal powers but finds it difficult to select the relevant EU issues to exercise its controlling powers. Finland and Sweden, on the other hand, did not provide for such extensive room of manoeuvre for their parliaments but have been more successful in selecting important EU matters to exercise parliamentary control. Especially the Finnish solution, where the parliament focuses on issues that should have been decided by the parliament if Finland had not been a member of the EU, has proven to be particularly successful.

  19. Co-management: transformation of community affair model in Chinese nature reserves

    2004-01-01

    This article analyzes the application of co-management in establishing and zoning nature reserves, explains two types of participatory models, explains the main content and steps required to implement a co-management program, and suggests future direction of co-management. In China, great progress has been achieved since 1956 when the first nature reserve was established. However, conflicts between nature reserve officials and community members, and differences between conservation and utilization of natural resources suggest that the traditional community affair model is unfit to some degree. A more workable and economically sustainable model is recommended. Co-management appears to be the preferred management model. International conservation organizations have carried out projects in Chinese nature reserves in recent years, and co-management is thought to be an effective approach to resolve conflicts coming from community and to improve nature reserves management.

    Full Text Available At the beginning of his diplomatic career in Constantinople in 1835, David Urquhart was instrumental in promoting the British cause by endorsing its political grand design and mercantile interests in Turkey, Greece, the Caucasian region, Crimea, Serbia and adjacent Balkan principalities. While observing the complexities of the Eastern Question, Urquhart recognized the underlying importance that Serbia had attained in the context of competing imperial interests in the Balkans. His engaged commentaries on the crucial changes in Serbian political discourse elucidated as well his understanding of Serbian history and culture past and present. Urquhart discerned a correspondence between Serbian political affairs and the inherent situa­tion in the region of the Caucasus and Circassia.
