  8. Porti, trasporti e cultura del mare nelle città d’Italia, per i 150 anni dall’Unità

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2011-04-01

    Full Text Available Le celebrazioni per i 150 anni dell’Unità d’Italia offrono anche l’occasione per interrogarsi sulla storia e lo sviluppo di questo Paese, in particolare in riferimento alla cultura del mare e al sistema dei trasporti via acqua. In un paese peninsulare come l’Italia, con i suoi 7.500 chilometri di fronte d’acqua, la presenza dei porti è sempre stata elemento determinante per la crescita economica e per la sua affermazione sui mercati internazionali. Ma, dalla seconda metà del Novecento, le città e i loro porti sono andati progressivamente separandosi, determinando situazioni di forti contrasti e di continue tensioni. Solo più recentemente – a seguito della legge n. 84 del 1994 – nuove forme di ‘dialogo’ hanno consentito, in talune occasioni, di riavviare politiche di concertazione sui piani di sviluppo delle aree portuali e sul miglioramento della situazione delle zone urbane prossime ai porti. Per tutti questi motivi, l’occasione del 150esimo anniversario dell’Unità d’Italia può rappresentare un momento significativo per riprendere la riflessione sul ruolo dei porti italiani nella storia del nostro paese, ed, eventualmente, sul potenziale rafforzamento che essi possono subire, alla luce dei dati positivi ed incoraggianti dell’intero cluster marittimo in questi ultimi anni, almeno fino alla crisi congiunturale del 2008.Al tempo stesso, si può analizzare la complessa relazione porto-città, in un’ottica di mutuo riconoscimento delle rispettive esigenze e della volontà di sviluppare le proprie attività in un quadro di concreto ed efficace spirito di collaborazione, che richiede sia una maggiore conoscenza reciproca, così come una più efficace definizione degli obiettivi per il raggiungimento di una qualità urbana sostenibile e duratura.La progressiva globalizzazione dell’economia e la liberalizzazione del mercato hanno determinato una generale crescita degli scambi commerciali a livello mondiale e in

    Full Text Available La libéralisation du transport aérien européen a accru la tendance des grandes compagnies à prendre des parts dans des compagnies de taille plus modeste tout en diversifiant les motivations. Dans ce contexte, les réseaux aériens des secondes évoluent en fonction des intérêts des premières et sous la contrainte de la rentabilité financière. Les conséquences sur la géographie des réseaux aériens sont variables: tandis que les grandes compagnies concentrent leur offre sur un nombre réduit de hubs, les lignes plus secondaires ou de niche tendent à demeurer l’objet de filiales spécifiques, ou sont laissées à d’autres compagnies (en particulier de type low-cost ou sont supprimées au profit d’une concentration de l’offre ailleurs.

  14. Expression and Bodily Faith in Natalie Heller’s First Impressions

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Adam Loughnane

    2016-07-01

    Full Text Available In this essay I place choreographer Natalie Heller in dialogue with Merleau-Ponty on issues of motor-perception, expression and bodily faith. I analyze her new work First Impressions to demonstrate how she responds to a similar impulse that drove Merleau-Ponty’s phenomenology, particularly in his last writing, The Visible and the Invisible. Both Heller and Merleau-Ponty seek to go beyond the representational understanding of motion and perception in order to articulate and experiment with a type of expression, which is beyond the distinctions between motion and motionlessness, activity and passivity, visibility and invisibility. While Merleau-Ponty writes about this form of expression, Heller’s performers show that beyond these binaries is a form of expression that is ambiguously situated between impressing and being impressed upon, and that to engage the world or the city as such, requires a motor-perceptual form of faith.

  17. Pigmented macrophage aggregates as a biomarker of oxidative damage in yellow bullhead catfish, Ameiurus natalis

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    1995-01-01

    Pigmented macrophage aggregates (PMs) occur when peroxidized lipids resulting from oxidative damage in tissues are scavenged by macrophages. Ionizing radiation causes oxidative damage, so the authors evaluated PMs as a biomarker in the pronephros of yellow bullheads (Ameiurus natalis) inhabiting Pond B, Savannah River Site, SC, a reservoir contaminated with low levels of 137 Cs. ANOVA, ANCOVA, and stepwise regression were used to relate the mean number of PMs, per 0.15 mm 2 of tissue section, to fish sex (females: N = 61; males: N = 84), age (1--6 yrs), body-condition, and muscle 137 Cs concentration. Mean pronephric PMs differed by six and with fish muscle 137 Cs concentration. Among males, PMs were positively correlated with fish age and 137 Cs. In females, PMs were also correlated with fish age and 137 Cs. ANCOVA, with age as covariate, affirmed that sex and muscle 137 Cs were significantly associated with the mean number of pronephric PMs. Using stepwise regression, the interaction of age and 137 Cs concentration was most strongly associated with pronephric PMs in males. Among females, the product of age, body-condition, and 137 Cs concentration was most strongly associated with pronephric PMs. The positive relationships between the number of pronephric PMs and 137 Cs concentration suggest that oxidative damage related to long-term exposure to low-level radiation is detectable in these fish. Secondarily, these results demonstrate the importance of considering covariates such as age and sex when evaluating effects of environmental contaminants

    1997-01-01

    Bioaccumulation of 137 Cs was investigated in yellow bullhead catfish (Ameiurus natalis) inhabiting an abandoned reactor reservoir, Pond B, Savannah River Site, Barnwell Co., South Carolina. The authors collected fish by trap-netting, and determined ages from pectoral spines. Muscle and other tissues were assayed for 137 Cs by NaI-scintillation. Music 137 Cs was unrelated to sex or mass of fish, but was related to age. Examination of least-squares means suggested that 137 Cs in muscle increased up to about age 3, but did not increase with greater age. A modified Richards model showed equilibrium 137 Cs concentration in muscle was acquired in approximately 2.4 years. Growth differed between sexes and the time to asymptotic body mass was longer than the time to attain equilibrium 137 Cs concentration. Males attained an asymptotic mass of 577 g in approximately 6.3 years; females attained an asymptotic mass of 438 g in approximately 5.9 years. The cumulative 137 Cs burden of the population was 4.9 x 10 6 Bq, representing 137 Cs inventory of the reservoir. Concentration of 137 Cs varied among tissues with gill and muscle the lowest and highest. Concentration of 137 Cs in ovaries declined with increasing ovary mass. Until equilibrium is attained in these fish, 137 Cs concentration is directly related to increasing age rather than size

    Full Text Available In this interview, Natalie Rogers PhD, expounds on how art and expression serve personal and group growth in Person Centered Expressive Arts Therapy. Adding to the legacy of her father Carl Rogers, creator of the Person Centered Approach, she describes the interweaving of her experiences as a therapist and woman, and how she afforded extra room in the process for intuition, creativity, emotions and the fascinating exploration of the human experience. Using modeling, sculpting, dance, painting, music, etc. she created a model which furthers the person’s genuine expression and self knowledge. She sketches a profile of a facilitator who takes special care in creating an ambience where s/he not only does not judge the work, person, experience or results, but is on the contrary, empathetic and acceptant of the person and her experiences. Lastly, she discusses the applications of this approach to traditional educational settings, as well as some of the key training issues.

The scrutiny and the comparison with other minor chronicles of the 14th century (see «Reti Medievali - Rivista», 17 [2016], 2, 113-151 leads to a new interpretation of these witnesses, which explains the evasiveness in the account by Dino Compagni and provides not only a new reading of the overall sense of this historical phase but also of the specific sense of Dante’s reference to these facts in the canto VI of the Inferno.

  1. Intégration verticale et niveau du risque au sein des compagnies pétrolières internationales. Impact sur la volatilité des bénéfices de 15 compagnies entre 1980 et 1989 Vertical Integration and Risk Level in International Oil Companies

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Perruchet D.

    2006-11-01

    Full Text Available On regroupe couramment les diverses activités pétrolières en deux ensembles que l'on dit complémentaires : l'amont et l'aval. On emploie alors le terme d'intégration verticale pour exprimer le fait qu'une même compagnie soit présente tant à l'amont qu'à l'aval. L'intégration verticale est étudiée ici sur la période 1980-1989 à travers quinze compagnies pétrolières : six Majors et neuf Indépendants. Les volumes d'activité des deux secteurs considérés présentent des évolutions contrastées selon les compagnies et les années. En effet, la recherche d'une intégration verticale plus complète - c'est-à-dire d'une plus grande présence en amont - peut découler de deux logiques différentes. D'un point de vue industriel, si l'amont constitue souvent le fondement de l'activité des compagnies, il existe de plus des facteurs de sécurité d'approvisionnement, d'économie de transaction et d'économie d'échelle. D'un point de vue économique, dans la mesure où les ventes du secteur amont sont les fournitures du secteur aval, c'est l'antisymétrie des résultats des deux secteurs qui est un atout. Il s'agit donc d'analyser les liens entre l'intégration verticale et la stabilité des bénéfices. Sur la période considérée, et pour l'ensemble des compagnies, le coefficient de corrélation entre les bénéfices amont et les bénéfices aval est négatif. L'étude, compagnie par compagnie, montre que plus les compagnies sont intégrées verticalement et plus leurs résultats sont anticorrélés. De même, l'étude des répercussions sur la volatilité des bénéfices est concluante. On constate que la volatilité du bénéfice global (amont et aval est pour chaque compagnie inférieure à celles des bénéfices sectoriels. Des estimations économétriques confirment ces observations. Les Majors se caractérisent par des volatilités faibles, tandis que d'autres compagnies, à forts risques sectoriels, limitent la volatilité de

  4. Construction of a new plant in Gabon by the Compagnie des Mines d'Uranium de Franceville: Three years' experience of operation

    Jug, V.

    1987-01-01

    As part of a programme to modernize and extend its means of production which had already commenced with the setting up of a solvent extraction unit in 1977, and a sulphuric acid production facility of increased capacity (60 t/d) in 1980, the Compagnie des Mines d'Uranium de Franceville (COMUF) started a new uranium ore treatment plant in 1982. The aim was to replace the older installation built in 1959-60, which had reached the limit of its capacity and whose largest equipment was in need of renewal. The new installations are capable of an annual uranium production of 1500 t of magnesium uranate. The techniques adopted were the most modern, those likely to simplify the process and improve operating costs, namely semi-autogenous grinding and solid-liquid separation using band filters. Three years of operating experience confirm the sound choice of the main options made when designing the installations. The treatment performances, especially those which are independent of the nature of the ore, and the reliability of operation are indeed excellent. Thanks to a training programme started in the late 1980s the staff adapted rapidly to the new technical environment and it has been possible to run the entire plant with almost exclusively Gabonese staff.

  6. Une nouvelle ère de la phénoménologie de la religion ? Sur les récents travaux de Natalie Depraz et Anthony J. Steinbock

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Sylvain Camilleri

    2012-06-01

    Full Text Available Phenomenology of religion is among the oldest branches of the discipline founded by Husserl. It has always been difficult to define its outlines: from the very first essays of Scheler, Reinach and Heidegger to the so-called “theological turn” of French phenomenology, one has always feared the transformation of the phenomenology of religion in a religious philosophy that would give up the sacred principle of neutrality. This situation is perhaps behind us thanks to the recent endeavors to renew the field of research. French and American specialists of Husserl’s thought Natalie Depraz and Anthony J. Steinbock try to push back the limits of and to explore new ways in genetic phenomenology by describing religious attitudes by mean of a philosophical-existential methodology especially designed for this task. This paper introduces what might open of a new era of the phenomenology of religion.

Natalie Dessay is honored as a"vocal marvel" at the end of the 20th century. The two singers from two different countries have different singing styles and vo-cal effects when they sing"Vocal Concerto". Through a compara-tive analysis on"Vocal Concerto"sung by Wu Bixia and Natalie Dessay, we can more clearly learn about the prospect of the de-velopment of vocal music in China, thus understanding and re-flecting more about the cultures of the two styles.

It has been conducted a study based upon the terms used by four major international airlines - two from Europe: British Airways (United Kingdom and Alitalia (Italy, and two from Latin America: TAM (Brazil and Lan (Chile - in their websites, designed for the final consumer (passenger, since each of them has a different official language (English, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish, respectively. The specific objectives were: i to reflect about the differences among the terms used by each airline, ii to analyze whether there is a substantial presence of acronyms, iii to identify how each of these airlines use English, considering that only the first one has it as its official language. The hypothesis that have guided the research are: i there are no significant changes among the terminology used by the airlines which are the object of the present research, ii, there is a fair use of synonyms for the same concepts, iii there is an extensive use of acronyms, iv there is a considerable influence of English, that may be seen in language borrowings and in some hybrid formations.

  15. Staking solutions to tube vibration problems (developed by Technos et Compagnie - FRANCE)

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Electric generating plant steam surface condensers have been prone to vibration induced tube failures. One common and effective method for stopping this vibration has been to insert stakes into the bundle to provide additional support. Stakes have been fabricated of a variety of rigid and semi-rigid materials of fixed dimensions. Installation difficulties and problems of incomplete tube support have been associated with this approach. New developments in the application of plastic technology has offered another approach. Stakes made of plastic tubes which are flattened, by evacuation, at the time of manufacture may now be easily inserted into the tube bundle. After insertion, the vacuum is released and the memory of the plastic causes the stakes to expand and assume their original form. The spring force of the plastic cradles the adjacent condenser tubes and stops the vibration. Developed for Electricite de France (EDF), the stakes are currently installed in 19 units of the French utility system, and two units in the United States

    2018-01-01

    Full Text Available A Python code was developed to automatically retrieve the aerosol type (and its predominant component in the mixture from EARLINET’s 3 backscatter and 2 extinction data. The typing relies on Artificial Neural Networks which are trained to identify the most probable aerosol type from a set of mean-layer intensive optical parameters. This paper presents the use and limitations of the code with respect to the quality of the inputed lidar profiles, as well as with the assumptions made in the aerosol model.

    2005-05-01

    The oil industry is particularly concerned with the issue of climate change. The implementation of Greenhouse Gases (GHG) reduction policies can be perceived as an additional environmental constraint for the management of the production chain. It is also represents a first step towards a possible decarbonization of the economy. In the long-term, the fight against global warming calls thus into question the activity level of petroleum companies. Confronted with this, still uncertain, new environmental deal, some petroleum multinationals adopt proactive behaviors, e.g. with voluntary commitments to reduce GHG emissions, or with investments in alternative technologies. First of all, we present the potential economic impacts of the Kyoto Protocol on oil industry. Then, we conduct a comparative analysis of the 'Kyoto risk' for the five largest multinationals of this sector according to their activities and their geographical implantations. Then, for the purpose to interpreting proactive strategies of firms such as BP and Shell, we examine various explanations including 'win-win', public image and the response to broad societal needs. This leads us to formalize the proactive behavior as an anticipatory management of carbon contestability, particularly perceptible in financial markets. Lastly, we try to justify economically investments of companies in the field of alternative energy sources and technologies through the lens of real options theory and by a management of the exhaustible fossil resources.

    This booklet summarizes the history of the mining activity in the Lozere district (France) devoted to the extraction of uranium ores. This activity started in 1957 with the open cast exploitation of the Cellier deposit which lasted 35 years and produced 4200 t of uranium from 5800000 t of ore. The exploitation was performed by the French Company of Uranium Ores (CFMU). The uranium crisis started in 1962 and led to an increase of prospecting activities. The crisis ended with the first oil crack in 1973 and the uranium demand and prices grew up until 1979 when the Three Mile Island reactor accident occurred. The second crisis that followed led to the development of new recovery processes such as the heap lixiviation process. In 1980, the CFMU became the French Company of Mokta (CFM) and in 1986, the CFM became a 100% daughter company of the Cogema group. The exploitation of the Bondons mine ended in 1989 and the program of site rehabilitation started. The document focusses on the environmental aspects of this program, the reforestation, the drainage of surface waters and the control of water quality. (J.S.)

Several questions arise as to the reason why they were not sent any support, but three films or serials have nevertheless been dedicated to their last fight since 2004. This article compares the official discourse, the film plots and the reactions that were stirred by these deaths among Russian veterans and analyses how the paratroopers are made to look like heroes, who fell in the name of Motherland, anti-terrorism and soldier brotherhood.

    2012-03-01

    Full Text Available Dans les affiches de propagande britanniques et américaines de la Seconde Guerre mondiale, les représentations d’Adolf Hitler font de lui soit un monstre effrayant, sanguinaire et diabolique, soit un clown grotesque, un pantin ridicule et risible, une cible qu’il faut frapper, écraser, ou détruire d’une façon ou d’une autre. S’adressant au sens de l’humour du spectateur, à ses peurs ou à son aversion, les artistes de propagande des deux côtés de l’Atlantique utilisent des leviers émotionnels et des tons très variés pour faire du dictateur nazi un des ressorts principaux de la participation à l’effort de guerre. Ces caricatures d’Hitler, dont l’objectif final était d’encourager la production et les économies ou de lutter contre les bavardages intempestifs, révèlent une condamnation morale ou politique et font partie de la propagande de soutien au moral, qui vise à galvaniser les Troupes de l’Intérieur en présentant la victoire comme quelque chose de vital ou d’inéluctable. Qu’il soit monstre ou clown, on fait tomber le dictateur déshumanisé de son piédestal, un piédestal si soigneusement construit pour lui par la propagande nazie.

    2013-05-01

    Full Text Available Fondateur de l’entreprise taiwanaise Chimei, Hsu Wen-lung est une personnalité incontournable à Taiwan dans les domaines de la technologie de pointe, du mécénat et de la politique. Issu d’une famille modeste, il met en place en quelques années et à partir de peu de moyens un empire industriel et financier, tout en tranchant nettement avec ses concurrents en ce qui concerne la gestion de l’entreprise et ses activités externes. En effet, on peut remarquer, tant dans le management de Chimei, les activités de mécène des arts et de la musique que dans ses ouvrages, discours officiels et privés, que Hsu voue une admiration profonde au Japon et à certaines personnalités japonaises qui ont œuvré au développement de Taiwan durant la période d’annexion de l’île par le Japon, de 1895 à 1945. Après avoir retracé les grandes lignes de l’histoire de Hsu et de Chimei, on s’attellera à expliquer d’une part la représentation du Japon et de la période japonaise chez Hsu, et, d’autre part, l’influence japonaise – notamment celle de l’éthique du bushidō – dans l’organisation de son entreprise et ses activités de mécénat.Founder of Taiwanese-based Chimei company, Hsu Wen-lung is an eminent figure in Taiwan, especially in high technology, patronage and political fields. Even if he was not very well off in the beginning, he eventually set up a financial and industrial empire, while differing greatly from his rivals because of the peculiar way of managing Chimei. Apart from the factory, Hsu decided to invest into patronage of arts, hospitals, environmental and educational programs. In his actions, the books he wrote, in official and private declarations as well, Hsu repeatedly manifests that he feels a profound admiration for Japan and for some well-known Japanese who tended to develop Taiwan during Japanese Rule (1895-1945. In this paper we begin with a presentation of Hsu and Chimei, then we explain what kind of ties he built with Japan through the firm, through his activities of patronage. Afterwards, we present how Hsu has been influenced during his youth by the bushidō, the Japanese “traditional” moral code, and how he tried to spread this philosophy in all Chimei’s activities.

  20. Work/Family Balancing and 24/7 Work Schedules: Network Analysis of Strategies in a Transport Company Cleaning Service: Concilier travail-famille et horaires 24/7: analyse réseau des stratégies au sein du service de nettoyage d'une compagnie de transport.

    2017-11-01

    Whether or not official work/family balance measures exist within an organization, scheduling accommodations often go through informal channels involving colleagues and superiors and are negotiated within interpersonal relationships. This study examines the relationship dimensions of the scheduling strategies of cleaners working atypical hours in the transport sector through the lenses of ergonomic activity, network, and gender analyses. Using semi-directed interviews, observation, and network analysis, we revealed the effect of gender on relationship dynamics and the influence of these dynamics on work/family balance strategies deployed by cleaners. One of the main contributions of this study is to demonstrate the decisive effect of relationships by revealing inequalities in access to organizational social networks. Creating spaces to discuss work/family balancing and a more equitable circulation of information could contribute to reducing inequalities associated with gender, social status, and family responsibilities and support the work/family strategies developed by workers dealing with restrictive work schedules. Résumé Les accommodements du temps de travail pour la conciliation travail-famille (CTF) passent souvent par des ententes informelles qui s'inscrivent dans les relations entre collègues ou avec des gestionnaires. Notre étude, intégrant l'ergonomie et la communication dans une perspective de genre, porte sur les dimensions relationnelles des stratégies de choix d'horaire d'agentes et agents de nettoyage devant composer avec des horaires atypiques dans le secteur des transports. À partir d'entretiens semi-dirigés, d'observations et d'analyse de réseaux, nous avons pu observer l'influence des dynamiques relationnelles, notamment de genre, sur les stratégies de CTF. Un apport central de cette étude est de montrer l'effet structurant des relations en révélant notamment des inégalités dans l'accès aux ressources facilitant le choix d'horaire, mais aussi dans l'inclusion au sein du réseau de relations. L'article conclut en proposant des pistes de solutions concrètes pour la réduction de ces inégalités.

    In their recent paper, Natalie Banner and Tim Thornton evaluate seven volumes of the Oxford University Press series “International Perspectives in Philosophy and Psychiatry,” an international book series begun in 2003 focusing on the emerging interdisciplinary field at the interface of philosophy and psychiatry. According to Natalie Banner and Tim Thornton, the series represents a clear indication that the interdisciplinary field of philosophy of psychiatry has been flourishing lately. Philosophers and psychiatrists face a “new philosophy of psychiatry”. However, the optimism which the “new” philosophy of psychiatry celebrates is precisely the exiling of philosophy from the foundations of psychiatry. The 150 year old belief that psychopathology cannot do without philosophical reflection has virtually disappeared from common psychiatric education and daily clinical practice. Though the discipline of psychiatry is particularly suited to contributions from philosophy, the impact of philosophy on psychiatry nowadays remains limited. With some exceptions, philosophical papers are embedded in a philosophical context inscrutable to ordinary psychiatrists. Much current philosophical work is perceived by psychiatrists as negativistic. I would encourage the field of psychiatry to incorporate once again basic philosophical attitudes which render possible true dialogue with philosophy and enrich both disciplines. The views developed here should not discredit the value and importance of Natalie Banner and Tim Thornton’s paper and the excellent series “International Perspectives in Philosophy and Psychiatry.” As Jaspers said “Everybody inclined to disregard philosophy will be overwhelmed by philosophy in an unperceived way”.

    Permafrost soils contain approximately1700 Pg of carbon (C), twice the amount of C in the atmosphere. Temperatures in higher latitudes are increasing, inducing permafrost thaw and subsequent microbial decomposition of previously frozen C. This process is one of the most likely positive feedbacks to climate change. Understanding the temperature sensitivity (Q10) and dynamics of SOM decomposition under warming is essential to predict the future state of the earth - climate system. Alaskan tundra soils were exposed to two winter warming (WW) seasons in the field, which warmed the soils by 4°C to 40 cm depth. Soils were obtained from three depths (0 - 15, 15 - 25 and 45 - 55 cm) and differed in initial amounts of labile and recalcitrant C. Soils were incubated in the lab under aerobic conditions, at 15 and 25°C over 365 days. Q10 was estimated at 14, 100 & 280 days of incubation (DOI); C fluxes were measured periodically and dynamics of SOM decomposition (C pool sizes and decay rates) were estimated by fitting a two pool C model to cumulative respired C (Ccum, mgC/ginitialC). After two WW seasons, initial C content tended to decrease through the soil profile and C:N ratio was significantly decreased in the top 15 cm. After one year of incubation, Ccum was twice as high at 25°C as at 15°C and significantly decreased with depth. No significant WW field treatment was detected, although Ccum tended to be lower in warmed soils. Labile C accounted for up to 5% of initial soil C content in the top 15 cm and decreased with depth. Soils exposed to WW had smaller labile C pools, and higher labile C decay rates in the top 25 cm. Q10 significantly decreased with time and depth as labile pool decreased, especially for WW. This decrease with time indicates a lower temperature sensitivity of the most recalcitrant C pool. The deepest WW soil layer, where warming was more pronounced, had significantly lower Q10 compared to control soils at the same depth. After two seasons, the warming treatment affected decomposition by reducing labile C pools and increasing its decay rates. Warming also reduced temperature sensitivity, showing acclimation of the most recalcitrant C pool in the tundra ecosystem.

    In the context of new irrigation techniques the Compagnie Nationale d'Amenagement du Bas-Rhone et du Languedoc (B.Rh.L.) has developed a process of localized irrigation by perforated distributors. Conditions were defined for the optimum use of this process, especially the distribution of water in the ground. The study was carried out in a peach orchard in stony ground. The neutronic method was used to measure the soil moisture content. Because of the heterogeneous stone size distribution it was necessary for the specific humidity determination to take into account the dry apparent density. This parameter was measured by gammametry [fr

    A new method to solve simultaneously all models of availability, reliability and maintenaibility for a complex system is described. This analysis is obtained more exactly by using time-intervals between failures and times to repare with probability laws and maintenance policies most adapted to the problem. The expression of this computation, using MARKOV chains corresponds perfectly to computer-language and results very short machine operation times. The procedure necessary for the use of APAFS program operationnal at the CISI (Compagnie Internationale de Services en Informatique) is also described. Thus, a very important tool is now available to designers without any requirement in programming knowledge [fr

    In 1498, the Portuguese crossed the Cape of Good Hope. It was not until the period of 1633 and 1666, dates of the founding, respectively, of the Compagnie de l'Orient and the Compagnie des Indes orientales, that the way was definitively opened for trade between France and India. Because so many sailors developed scurvy after voyages that lasted 4 to 5 months, the French settled on Bourbon Island (Réunion) and Ile de France (Mauritius), to provide them with medical care. Created in 1689 by Louis XIV, the Navy Health Service was responsible for health in the colonies until it was replaced in 1890 by the Colonial Health Service. European medicine began its slow diffusion around the Indian Ocean in Pondicherry (India). The naval doctors reported their experiences in the Archives de médecine navale (1864-1889), and the colonial doctors afterwards in the Archives de médecine navale et coloniale (1890-1896). The health system in Madagascar developed strongly during 19(th) and 20(th) centuries, and the subsequent development of health care in the other Indian Ocean islands became closely linked to that of Madagascar. On Bourbon, the two navy hospitals in Saint-Paul and Saint-Denis treated only naval and military personnel. The colony had no hospital providing care for civilians and poor people until three civilian doctors opened a maison de santé (health house) in 1846.

  10. THE DURATION OF BORDER CONTROL PROCEDURES RELATED TO THE HANDLING OF FREIGHT TRANSPORTED BY MEANS OF SEA-ROAD TRANSPORT CHAINS AS A COMPONENT IN COMPETITIVENESS OF THE POLISH SEAPORTS

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Michał Pluciński

    2017-09-01

    Full Text Available The duration of border control procedures related to the handling of freight transported by means of sea-road transport chains has become a significant component in competitiveness of seaports. The situation in this regard, existing in the Polish seaports, which was unfavourable against the background of other seaports providing services to the same supply base, resulted in the fact that a significant part of freight, i.e. mainly general containerized cargo, was handled outside the Polish seaports. The situation began to change when amendments to the regulations related to VAT (2011 and the so called “Porty 24” Package (2014 were adopted. In majority of the customs offices located in the biggest Polish seaports both the duration of services provided in relation to customs declaration and the duration of the so called “collective customs clearance” were reduced. The number of customs declarations under the simplified procedure also rose significantly. Between 2007 and 2015 customs duties and taxes in relation to the sea-land handling in Gdańsk, Gdynia, Szczecin and Świnoujście rose more than threefold.

  11. Bravura Indômita: entre a fábula e a trama

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Sharmilla O'hana Rodrigues da Silva

    2012-05-01

    Full Text Available Neste artigo, analisam-se o romance Bravura Indômita, escrito por Charles Portis e publicado em 1968, e suas duas versões para o cinema, realizadas em 1969 e em 2010. Parte-se dos conceitos de fábula e trama – também conhecidos como fábula e enredo, narração e mostração, estória e discurso – que indicam que várias narrativas podem ser criadas a partir de uma única. Usam-se os estudos desenvolvidos por Seymour Chatman, Umberto Eco, Hélio Guimarães, Linda Hutcheon, Linda Seger, Ismail Xavier, André Gaudreault e François Jost para entender como estes conceitos funcionam na relação entre literatura e cinema. Para reflexão sobre os dois filmes, recorrem-se as resenhas publicadas por Isabela Boscov, Yuri Celico, Thiago M. Correia, Marcelo Hessel, André Sollito e Rubens Ewald Filho. Percebe-se que a adaptação é um processo de reconstrução textual em que o indivíduo insere suas experiências pessoais e sociais. Logo, as duas versões fílmicas de Bravura Indômita se configuram como interpretações de diferentes leitores – neste caso, os cineastas Henry Hathaway e Joel e Ethan Coen.

  12. Lighting in the health care sector; Verlichting in de zorg

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Visser, R. [Grontmij, Amersfoort (Netherlands)

    2009-02-15

    The importance of light for people's health and welfare attracts frequent attention, not only the professional press but also in countless articles in newspapers and news magazines. Insufficient illumination can upset the biological clock and may even cause depression. In principle this applies to anyone who has to stay indoors all day or nearly all day; in the case of care homes it affects residents who have no regular opportunity to sit at a window, for example those who are bedridden. Research indicates that we need a minimum daily portion of daylight or of artificial light with similar qualities as daylight. This is also of great importance to night workers. [Dutch] Niet alleen in de vakpers, maar ook in tal van dag- en weekbladen, wordt regelmatig het belang van licht voor het welzijn en de gezondheid van de mens aan de orde gesteld. Gebrek aan voldoende licht kan het bioritme verstoren en zelfs leiden tot depressie. Dat geldt in principe voor alle mensen die om wat voor redenen dan ook de hele dag of nagenoeg de hele dag binnen moeten blijven. In zorginstellingen is dit vooral van toepassing voor degenen die zich niet regelmatig direct achter het ream kunnen bevinden, zoals mensen die bedlegering zijn. Want door onderzoek is gebleken dat we elke dag een voldoende portie daglicht nodig hebben of licht met overeenkomstige kwaliteiten als daglicht. Voor mensen die 's nachts moeten werken is het laatstgenoemde ook van groot belang.

  14. Tragic Oedipus, Precarious Oedipus: Inheritance, Legacy and Crisis’ Imaginary in Game of Thrones

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Valentina Sturli

    2017-12-01

    Full Text Available Il paper propone una lettura complessiva della serie TV Game of Thrones in chiave di grande narrazione contemporanea in cui si intrecciano e si riconfigurano temi e forme tipici dei generi epico e tragico. Attraverso l’analisi delle principali linee narrative si mostrerà come la serie porti in scena un’originale versione del conflitto edipico. Meccanismo di tensione per antonomasia tra le generazioni, e problematico crocevia tra aspirazioni individuali e norme collettive, esso permette di indagare il ruolo dell’individuo in relazione al nucleo familiare di appartenenza e alle più ampie dinamiche sociali, e assume un ruolo cardine all’interno di una narrazione seriale programmaticamente incentrata sulla lotta per la successione dinastica e la gestione del potere. Si mostrerà come la particolare declinazione del tema edipico di questa serie TV entra potentemente in risonanza con le peculiari dinamiche della crisi e della precarizzazione dell’esistenza che caratterizzano l’epoca contemporanea.

  20. Ballet in the Dark: A Critical Review of Black Swan by Darren Aronofsky

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Rina Angela Corpus

    2011-12-01

    Full Text Available Choreographing the life of a ballerina in an ominous psychological thriller is a highly gendered project that takes us to well-established suspects in the patriarchal schema of the ballet world. Black Swan’s filmmakers created a narrative out of a performance of the classic ballet Swan Lake, making it a mimicry of the life of the tragic heroine Nina Sayers (Natalie Portman. The symptomatic pathology of perfectionism haunts the lead character, revealing her manifest hubris while unmasking the systemic social conditioning of women in the ballet system. These women are driven to become tenacious competitors, pleasant and willing objects of a gaze and patronage that are traditionally male-defined and controlled.

  2. Learning activism, acting with phronesis

    2015-12-01

    The article "Socio-political development of private school children mobilising for disadvantaged others" by Darren Hoeg, Natalie Lemelin, and Lawrence Bencze described a language-learning curriculum that drew on elements of Socioscientific issues and Science, Technology, Society and Environment. Results showed that with a number of enabling factors acting in concert, learning about and engagement in practical action for social justice and equity are possible. An alternative but highly compatible framework is now introduced—phronetic social research—as an action-oriented, wisdom-seeking research stance for the social sciences. By so doing, it is hoped that forms of phronetic social research can gain wider currency among those that promote activism as one of many valued outcomes of an education in science.

    1998-01-01

    Personal documents have a significant place in psychological research. Suicide notes, diaries, novels, poems, and so on allow us to better understand the suicidal mind. The works of Sylvia Plath--a poet who killed herself at age 30--are prime examples for such protocol study. This article examines the last 6 months of Plath's poetry, revealing a suicidal malaise. Associating the results to the lives of Cesare Pavese and the case study of Natalie, a Terman-Shneidman subject of the intellectually gifted, the study shows a unit thema that facilitates the process of death. The poems reveal such themes as unbearable pain, loss, and abandonment that likely contributed significantly to death becoming the only solution.

  5. The Negro Dance

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Katherine Dunham

    2016-12-01

    Full Text Available Katherine Dunham’s The Negro Dance (1941 focuses on dances in the West Indies and on their similarities with North American dance forms rooted in African culture. Though backed up by the New Negro arguments of the time, it shows Dunham’s prominent elaboration of a dignified African-American art based on syncretic bodily practices, which anticipated theorizations in dance and cultural studies. By uniting a theoretical approach and performance ability, she also made methodological choices which, decades later, became standard practices in the field of dance anthropology. Moreover, she is now considered an ante litteram exponent of public or applied anthropology due to the fact that, by using various strategies, she managed to take anthropological knowledge out of the academic world and use it as an instrument for social transformation. The Negro Dance is introduced by Rossella Mazzaglia and followed by an afterword by Cristiana Natali and a biographical note by Marie-Christine Dunham Pratt.

    2018-05-24

    The ASBMB 2018 Bert and Natalie Vallee award in Biomedical Sciences honors our work on shelterin, a protein complex that helps cells distinguish the chromosome ends from sites of DNA damage. Shelterin protects telomeres from all aspects of the DNA damage response, including ATM and ATR serine/threonine kinase signaling and several forms of double-strand break repair. Today, this six-subunit protein complex could easily be identified in one single proteomics step. But it took us more than 15 years to piece the entire shelterin complex together, one protein at a time. Although we did a lot of things right, here I tell the story of shelterin's discovery with an emphasis on the things that I got wrong along the way.

    1987-09-01

    As part of the ongoing joint NRC/CEA cooperative test program to investigate the relative effectiveness of beta and gamma irradiation to produce damage in polymer base materials, ethylene propylene rubber (EPR) specimens, in slab geometry, were exposed to Cobalt-60 gamma rays and accelerator produced electron beams. Specimens were irradiated and evaluated at research facilities in the US (Sandia National Laboratories) and France (Compagnie ORIS Industrie). These tests included several electron beam energies, sample thicknesses, exposure doses, and dose rates. Based on changes in the tensile properties, of the test specimens, results of these studies suggest that material damage resulting from electron and gamma irradiations can be correlated on the basis of absorbed radiation dose

    As part of the ongoing multi-year joint NRC/CEA international cooperative test program to investigate the dose-damage equivalence of gamma and beta radiation on polymer base materials, dosimetry and ethylene-propylene rubber (EPR) specimens were exchanged, irradiated, and evaluated for property changes at research facilities in the US (Sandia National Laboratories) and France (Compagnie ORIS Industrie). The purpose of this Phase-1 test series was to normalize and cross-correlate the results obtained by one research center to the other, in terms of exposure (1.0 MeV accelerated electrons and 60 Co gammas) and postirradiation testing (ultimate elongation and tensile strength, hardness, and density) techniques. The dosimetry and material specimen results indicate good agreement between the two countries regarding the exposure conditions and postirradiation evaluation techniques employed

    1961-01-01

    In 1957 the Commissariat l'Energie Atomique in collaboration with two French industrial firms, the Compagnie de Saint-Gobain and the Societe Potasse et Engrais chimique, undertook the construction of a plant for the production of refined uranium on an industrial scale. This plant, which forms part of the French nuclear equipment programme and which works at a capacity of 1000 tons/year, was put into operation in July 1959. First of all the principles on which this under-taking is based are outlined. This is followed by a more detailed account of the construction, including the improvements brought to the process developed at the C.E.A. plant at le Bouchet when it was carried over to the industrial stage by the uranium branch of the Societe d'Etudes et de Travaux.

    Tonda, P.; Moine, J.

    1989-01-01

    The long history of the Compagnie des mines d'Uranium de Franceville (Comuf) is linked to the history of the young Gabonese Republic. The psychological and social role of Comuf in the development of Gabon exceeds its strictly economic impact, which in itself is far from negligible. Over the last thirty years Comuf has produced and delivered almost 20 000 tonnes U. Its proven reserves ensure that its activities can continue at the present level for at least 20 years and may permit it to remain open for over half a century. This means it can continue to work, as it always has done, for the long term: an essential condition for it to make a worthwhile contribution to the development of the country. This paper concentrates on the impact of Comuf's activities on its environment, its contribution to the local communities and its role in the country's economy. (author)

    The break-up of the Soviet Union in the early 1990s opened the door for the international oil companies to explore and develop the Caspian Sea's hydrocarbons resources. The full utilisation of this wealth, however, has been hindered by disagreement over the ownership of the basin and the choice of export routes. Another important obstacle is the troubled relationship between the United States and Iran. [Italian] Il crollo dell'Unione Sovietica nei primi anni '90 ha consentito alle compagnie petrolifere internazionali di esplorare e sviluppare le risorse di idrocarburi del Mar Caspio. Il disaccordo sulla proprieta del bacino e sulla scelta delle rotte di esportazione ha tuttavia impedito il pieno sfruttamento di questa ricchezza. Un altro importante ostacolo e dato dalle difficili relazioni tra Stati Uniti e Iran.

    Full Text Available Il dibattito sull’educazione inclusiva ruota, tipicamente, intorno a due argomenti: i principi e le evidenze empiriche. Sul piano dei principi l’inclusione concerne il diritto di tutti gli studenti, compresi quanti sperimentano difficoltà di diversa natura, di avere accesso all’istruzione all’interno della scuola ordinaria. Ma una scuola che include è anche una scuola efficace? Che impatto ha l’inclusione sul rendimento degli studenti con bisogni speciali e dei loro compagni a sviluppo tipico? Qual è l’impatto sulla partecipazione sociale di tutti gli studenti? Ad oggi sappiamo che sul piano delle evidenze empiriche le risposte a queste domande sono molto lontane da risposte definitive. Lo scopo di questo lavoro è presentare lo stato dell’arte della ricerca internazionale sull’educazione inclusiva attraverso i risultati delle indagini più recenti.

    Caleix, C.

    1985-01-01

    The Compagnie Generale des Matieres Nucleaires is currently exploiting several steep vein uranium deposits in France. The upper parts are exploited using the open-cast method, in the lower parts underground mining is used. The veins with a thickness of several meters fill faults caused by tectonic activity. With regard to the low strength of the rocks, wooden supports are used or fills. In the course of the past 25 years several mining methods have been tried of which overhand stoping was selected with an oblique ramp driven in the ore, this mainly for securing operating safety and the profitability of selective exploitation. In overburdens with a low bearing capacity the method of underhand benching in slices was used with a concrete fill and later underhand benching in slices with concrete reinforcing plates. Overhand stoping is being tried with fill and electric self-propelled machines left in the stope and mechanized driving of raises by full profile drilling. (B.S.)

    1981-01-01

    Chemical and chemical engineering techniques of the uranium ore processing established by France COGEMA (Compagnie Generale des Matieres Nucleaires) have been comprehensively reviewed in preparation for successful test operation of the pilot plant to be completed by the end of 1981. It was found that the amount of sulfuric acid (75 Kg/t, ore) and sodium chlorate (2.5 Kg/t, ore) recommended by COGEMA should be increased up to 100 Kg/t, ore and 10 Kg/t, ore respectively to obtain satisfactory leach of uranium for some ore samples produced at the different pits of Goesan uranium mine. Conditions of the other processes such as solvent extraction, stripping, and precipitation of yellow cake were generally agreed with the results of intensive studies done by this laboratory

    The French 'Compagnie Generale des Matieres Nucleaires' - COGEMA - is involved in the whole nuclear fuel cycle about 20 years. Among the different parts of the cycle, the Transport of Radioactive Materials, acting as a link between the differents plants has a great importance. As nuclear material transportation is the only fuel cycle step to be performed on public grounds, the industrial task has to be performed with the utmost stringent safety criteria. COGEMA and associates is now operating a fully mature commercial activity, with some 300 spent fuel shipments per year from its reprocessing customer's reactors to the LA HAGUE plant, either by rail, road or sea. The paper will review the organization of COGEMA transportation business, the level of technology with an update of the casks used for spent fuel, and the operational experience, with a particular view of the maintenance policy.

    1992-01-01

    Cigarette-smoking is a dominant cause of lung cancer and confounds risk assessment of exposure to radon decay products. Evidence in humans on the interaction between cigarette-smoking and exposure to radon decay products, although limited, indicates a possible synergy. Experimental animal data, in addition to showing synergy, also show a decrease or no change in risk with added cigarette-smoke exposures. This article reviews previous animal data developed at Compagnie Generale des Matieres Nucleaires and Pacific Northwest Laboratory (PNL) on mixed exposures to radon and cigarette smoke, and highlights new initiation-promotion-initiation (IPI) studies at PNL that were designed within the framework of a two-mutation carcinogenesis model. Also presented are the PNL exposure system, experimental protocols, dosimetry, and biological data observed to date in IPI animals

    A potential landslide of approximately 350,000 m{sup 3} is located on the right bank of the Rhone, above the barrage created by the Genissiat Dam, approximately 7 kilometers upstream from the built-up area of Bellegarde-sur-Valserine. Thishas led the Compagnie Nationale du Rhone to constantly supervise the area and to carry out various studies intended to draw up a set of urgent operating procedures in order to avoid any damage for the inhabitants. The aim of the reduced-model study described here is to determine the consequences of a landslide on the Genissiat barrage and on the town of Bellegarde-sur-Valserine and thus enable operating procedures to be clearly defined.

    Raffestin, D.; Tort, V.; Manen, P.; Schneider, T.; Lombard, J.

    1994-01-01

    Since 1991, French Low Specific Activity wastes have been stored in the near-surface waste disposal site in the Aube region (CSA). In 1995, the CSA plans to receive approximately 23,000 m 3 of waste from the three major producers, EDF (Electricite de France), COGEMA (COmpagnie GEnerale des MAtieres nucleaires), and the CEA (Commissariat a l'Energie Atomique). Four different kinds of package are broadly represented: the 200 l drums to be compacted, the 200 l drums filled with fixed wastes, concrete shells and metallic boxes. As the radiological exposures resulting from waste transport could stem from both incident-free transport and accident situations, two separate studies have been conducted. Using the INTERTRAN code (IAEA software) for accident-free transport, the overall effective collective doses related to the whole transport activity have been calculated and a risk of 0.48 man.Sv per year has been deduced.

    2008-12-01

    Full Text Available In the context of the White and Christian-dominated Afrikaans language movements, followed by apartheid, little attention has been paid to an Afrikaans literary variety used among Muslim Cape Coloureds, a group often referred to as ‘Cape Malays’. Descending mainly from Asian slaves brought by the Verenigde Oost-Indische Compagnie (VOC, Dutch East India Company, and bearing the marks of cohabitation with non-Asian populations at the Cape, the Cape Malays at an early stage developed a distinct religious culture through their adherence to Islam, as well as a distinct Cape Dutch linguistic identity through their connections with the Dutch East Indies and the Islamic world. These cultural idiosyncrasies found expression in a local literature, religious and (more rarely secular, using as a medium a variety of Cape Dutch/Afrikaans written either in the Arabic alphabet or in the Roman alphabet.

    The lower St. Lawrence region of Quebec is a rural area with little industry and does not possess important hydraulic resources. Electrification of this region progressed slowly and in an uneven manner. From 1888 to 1922, many local distributors, private or municipal, gave a mediocre quality of service to a small number of customers. A regional firm, the Compagnie de Pouvoir du Bas St-Laurent, followed in 1922 but its resources remained limited, and in a few years it passed under the control of American capitalists. The most rural sectors of the region were badly provided with electricity even in 1945, and the state, in the form of the Office de l'Electrification Rurale, had to intervene to remedy this situation. The Office took charge of organizing and financing electric power distribution cooperatives which ensured service in the most remote zones of Quebec. At the beginning of the 1960s, the inequalities in electric power rates in the region supplied a weighty argument to those in favor of nationalization of power companies. The Compagnie de Pouvoir was acquired by Hydro-Quebec in 1963 and the region was finally correctly integrated with the provincial grid. The cooperatives were also acquired by the Crown corporation a short time thereafter. Electrification was not only building power plants and distribution networks, but also involved development of consumption of electricity on farms and in homes. This made city comforts universal and modified rural life styles, for example by the introduction of electric appliances. 430 refs., 35 figs., 70 tabs.

    In order to assess pollutants and impact of environmental changes in the coastal region of the Jordanian Gulf of Aqaba, concentrations of six metals were traced through variations in 5 years growth bands sections of recent Porties coral skeleton. X-radiography showed annual growth band patterns extending back to the year 1925. Baseline metal concentrations in Porites corals were established using 35 years-long metal record from late Holocene coral (deposited in pristine environment) and coral from reef that is least exposed to pollution in the marine reserve in the Gulf of Aqaba. The skeleton samples of the collected corals were acid digested and analyzed for their Cd, Cu, Fe, Mn, Pb and Zn content using Flame Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer (FAAS). All metal profiles (except Fe and Zn) recorded the same metal signature from recent coral (1925-2005) in which low steady baseline levels were displayed in growth bands older than 1965, similar to those obtained from fossil and unpolluted corals. Most metals showed dramatic increase (ranging from 17% to 300%) in growth band sections younger than 1965 suggesting an extensive contamination of the coastal area since the mid sixties. This date represents the beginning of a period that witnessed increasing coastal activities, constructions and urbanization. This has produced a significant reduction in coral skeletal extension rates. Results from this study strongly suggest that Porites corals have a high tendency to accumulate heavy metals in their skeletons and therefore can serve as proxy tools to monitor and record environmental pollution (bioindicators) in the Gulf of Aqaba

    This special dossier treats of the changes that will happen in France with the deregulation of energy markets. It comprises 19 articles dealing with: the big bang of July 1, 2004 in the electricity and gas sector (on July 1, 2004, all professional consumers will have the possibility to chose their electricity and gas supplier. If Electricite de France (EdF) and Gaz de France (GdF) monopolies will split up, several questions remain unanswered for clients); the impossible penetration of the French market (3 weeks before the enhanced opening of power markets, EdF's competitors remain surprisingly limited and are mainly French actors. The big European competitors follow a wait-and-see policy); the independent power producer Compagnie Generale du Rhone wants to diversify its clients and is looking towards local authorities; Direct Energie: the 'low-cost' company for the mutualization of electricity purchases of small professionals; Endesa, the French daughter company of the Spanish electric utility, is looking for a balance between production and sales; HEW, daughter company of Vattenfall Europe and present in France since April 2000, wants to increase its margins more than its capacity; energy profilers are making consumption profiles for EdF's competitors; Poweo, energy retailing company built in 2002, is fetching very small companies; Atel, French daughter company of the Swiss power producer, does not foresee important changes in July 1; interview of F. Roussely, head of EdF about the liberalization of the electricity sector; the main energy groups favorable to deregulation; case study: Accor, the hotel trade group, has chosen Compagnie Generale du Rhone as power supplier; electricity: why prices are increasing; various foreign experiences; UK: the consolidation time (fully liberalized and privatized between several companies, the British energy market is under total re-building); USA: the deregulation process has failed and stays stuck to 24 states; Spain: the

    Paralleling the increasing availability of protein-protein interaction (PPI) network data, several network alignment methods have been proposed. Network alignments have been used to uncover functionally conserved network parts and to transfer annotations. However, due to the computational intractability of the network alignment problem, aligners are heuristics providing divergent solutions and no consensus exists on a gold standard, or which scoring scheme should be used to evaluate them. We comprehensively evaluate the alignment scoring schemes and global network aligners on large scale PPI data and observe that three methods, HUBALIGN, L-GRAAL and NATALIE, regularly produce the most topologically and biologically coherent alignments. We study the collective behaviour of network aligners and observe that PPI networks are almost entirely aligned with a handful of aligners that we unify into a new tool, Ulign. Ulign enables complete alignment of two networks, which traditional global and local aligners fail to do. Also, multiple mappings of Ulign define biologically relevant soft clusterings of proteins in PPI networks, which may be used for refining the transfer of annotations across networks. Hence, PPI networks are already well investigated by current aligners, so to gain additional biological insights, a paradigm shift is needed. We propose such a shift come from aligning all available data types collectively rather than any particular data type in isolation from others.

    Digital age: 'finger recognition' technology has been introduced into care homes to monitor how many hours nurses are working at any one time. As nurses at the care homes start and finish their shifts, they place their fingers into a wall-mounted scanner. This identifies tiny points on the finger and stores information about them so that each finger can be recognised when placed in the scanner again. By this method, the scanner can record exactly how long nurses have worked. Helen McArdle Care has introduced the 'biometric attendance system' into its five care homes. Managers argue that it will 'prevent overpayment for time not worked', and ensure that there is a correct skill mix in place. RCN senior employment relations adviser Karen Didovic said the system could be good if it ensures that nurses are paid for the overtime they work, but added: 'I do not think it should be the primary system for measuring staffing levels on the ward.'

In the cyber domain, the influence of emotion on decision-making is rarely investigated. The purpose of this study was to assess psychophysiological correlation with perseverative cognitions during emotionally intensive/stressful situations in cyber military personnel. In line with parallel research on clinical samples high on perseverative cognition, we expected a decreased interoceptive sensitivity in officers with high levels of perseverative cognition.Method: We investigated this association in a sample of 27 cyber officer cadets.Results: Contrary to our hypothesis, there was no relationship between the factors.Discussion: Cyber officers might display characteristics not otherwise found in general populations. The cyber domain may lead to a selection process that attracts different profiles of cognitive and emotional processing. Keywords: cyber, perseverative cognitions, interoception, decision-making

    Myelin is an insulating, multi-lamellar membrane structure wrapped around selected nerve axons. Increasing the speed of nerve impulses, it is crucial for the proper functioning of the vertebrate nervous system. Human neurodegenerative diseases, such as multiple sclerosis, are linked to damage to the myelin sheath through demyelination. Myelin exhibits a well defined subset of myelin-specific proteins, whose influence on membrane dynamics, i.e., myelin flexibility and stability, has not yet been explored in detail. In a first paper [W. Knoll, J. Peters, P. Kursula, Y. Gerelli, J. Ollivier, B. Demé, M. Telling, E. Kemner, and F. Natali, Soft Matter 10, 519 (2014)] we were able to spotlight, through neutron scattering experiments, the role of peripheral nervous system myelin proteins on membrane stability at room temperature. In particular, the myelin basic protein and peripheral myelin protein 2 were found to synergistically influence the membrane structure while keeping almost unchanged the membrane mobility. Further insight is provided by this work, in which we particularly address the investigation of the membrane flexibility in the low temperature regime. We evidence a different behavior suggesting that the proton dynamics is reduced by the addition of the myelin basic protein accompanied by negligible membrane structural changes. Moreover, we address the importance of correct sample preparation and characterization for the success of the experiment and for the reliability of the obtained results.

    Full Text Available In this article I examine the autobiographical texts of two Baltic German women, Natalie von Maydell (1878-1970 and Agnes von Baranow (1877-1968 and analyse their depiction of two breakthrough events in Estonian history: the establishment of the Republic of Estonia and the compulsory relocation of the Baltic Germans. Natalie von Maydell’s memoir, “Ein reiches Leben” is an unpublished manuscript in the family’s possession; Agnes von Baranow’s reminiscences titled Mein Baltenland were published soon after the resettlement in 1941. The analysis has been informed by postcolonial theory, in particular Homi K. Bhabha’s discussion of the master. In her reminiscences, Natalie von Maydell describes her return to the Paasvere Manor at the end of the winter of 1919. During the winter of 1918-1919 the manor had been overtaken by the Bolsheviks, who had vandalized it; Maydell portrays the outward changes in the manor house, how their home did not look homey any longer. In addition to the immediate damage to the building, lost or damaged household items and the violation of a secure home atmosphere, the writer describes the more significant change in the servants’ attitudes: while the damage and pillage could be rectified, it was impossible to control the people again. The circumstances had changed Estonian attitudes toward Germans, and to Maydell it was a painful and alienating experience. Home had become “unhomely.” At the same time, Maydell claims that the Estonians came to talk to her husband secretly, at night. With this sentence she smoothes over the new situation: the attributes of an old, paternalistic system are citations of earlier better times. Life that previously had clear boundaries was now blurred and confused: from one perspective it seemed the same but the next moment she would be reminded again in one way or the other. It is also important to note that the fragility and ambivalence in the Baltic German position was not

    White-bellied swiftlets of the Collocalia esculenta complex constitute a radiation of colony-breeding swifts distributed throughout the tropical Indo-Pacific region. Resolution of their taxonomy is challenging due to their morphological uniformity. To analyze the evolutionary history of this complex, we combine new biometric measurements and results from plumage assessment of museum specimens with novel as well as previously published molecular data. Together, this body of information constitutes the largest systematic dataset for white-bellied swiftlets yet compiled, drawn from 809 individuals belonging to 32 taxa for which new molecular, biometric, and/or plumage data are presented. We propose changing the classification of white-bellied swiftlets, for which two species are currently recognized, to elevate eight regional forms to species level, and we also describe two new subspecies. The ten taxa we recommend recognizing at the species level are: Collocalia linchi (Java to Lombok, Sumatran hills), C. dodgei (montane Borneo), C. natalis (Christmas Island), C. affinis (Greater Sundas, including the Thai-Malay Peninsula and Andaman-Nicobar Islands), C. marginata (Philippines), C. isonota (Philippines), C. sumbawae (west Lesser Sundas), C. neglecta (east Lesser Sundas), C. esculenta (Sulawesi, Moluccas, New Guinea, Bismarck Archipelago, Solomon Islands), and C. uropygialis (Vanuatu, New Caledonia). Future molecular and morphological work is needed to resolve questions of speciation and population affinities in the Philippines, Christmas Island, Wallacea and central Melanesia, and to shed light on historic diversification and patterns of gene flow in the complex.

    This report presents the results of a contaminant monitoring survey conducted annually by the Missouri Department of Conservation to examine the levels of selected elemental contaminants in fish fillets, fish muscle plugs, and crayfish. Fillet samples of yellow bullhead (Ameiurus natalis), golden redhorse (Moxostoma erythrurum), longear sunfish (Lepomis megalotis), and channel catfish (Ictalurus punctatus) were collected from six sites as part of the Missouri Department of Conservation’s Fish Contaminant Monitoring Program. Fish dorsal muscle plugs were collected from largemouth bass (Micropterus salmoides) at eight of the sites, and crayfish from two sites. Following preparation and analysis of the samples, highlights of the data were as follows: cadmium and lead residues were most elevated in crayfish tissue samples from the Big River at Cherokee Landing, with 1 to 8 micrograms per gram dry weight and 22 to 45 micrograms per gram dry weight, respectively. Some dorsal muscle plugs from largemouth bass collected from Clearwater Lake, Lake St. Louis, Noblett Lake, Hazel Creek Lake, and Harrison County Lake contained mercury residues (1.7 to 4.7 micrograms per gram dry weight) that exceeded the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Water Quality Criterion of 1.5 micrograms per gram dry weight of fish tissue (equivalent to 0.30 micrograms per gram wet weight).

    The razorback sucker (Xyrauchen texanus), an endangered big-river fish of the Colorado River basin, has demonstrated no sustainable recruitment in 4 decades, despite presence of spawning adults and larvae. Lack of adequate recruitment has been attributed to several factors, including predation by nonnative fishes. Substantial funding and effort has been expended on mechanically removing nonnative game fishes, typically targeting large predators. As a result, abundance of larger predators has declined, but the abundance of small nonnative fishes has increased in some areas. We conducted laboratory experiments to determine if small nonnative fishes would consume larval razorback suckers. We tested adults of three small species (threadfin shad, Dorosoma petenense; red shiner, Cyprinella lutrensis; fathead minnow, Pimephales promelas) and juveniles of six larger species (common carp, Cyprinus carpio; yellow bullhead, Ameiurus natalis; channel catfish, Ictalurus punctatus; rainbow trout, Oncorhynchus mykiss; green sunfish, Lepomis cyanellus; bluegill, L. macrochirus). These nonnative fishes span a broad ecological range and are abundant within the historical range of the razorback sucker. All nine species fed on larval razorback suckers (total length, 9-16 mm). Our results suggest that predation by small nonnative fishes could be responsible for limiting recovery of this endangered species.

Dopo essere diventato economista di professione, grazie alla sua ricerca, sia teorica che applicata, il suo insegnamento, le sue raccomandazioni a combattere la disoccupazione di massa, Modigliani divenne noto a livello mondiale come uno dei più grandi economisti keynesiani. Eppure vi sono molte componenti essenziali della Teoria Generale di Keynes che nei lavori di Modigliani non si trovano. In questa lezione si mostra come il suo sforzo – per usare una sua espressione – di “digerire” le idee innovative di Keynes nella più tradizionale teoria walrasiana porti alla perdita delle idee più genuinamente rivoluzionarie di Keynes. L’autore sostiene – riferendosi anche ad alcuni ricordi personali – che la convinzione di Keynes della necessità di costruire una nuova “teoria monetaria della produzione” rimane rilevante oggi quanto lo era all’epoca in cui venne proposta. Più che cercare di “digerire” la rivoluzione keynesiana, dovremmo cercare di portarla pienamente a compimento.   Modigliani was perceived importance of the General Theory of Keynes even before begin to study economics.

Yet there are many essential elements of the General Theory of Keynes that in the works of Modigliani are not. In this lesson we show how his effort - to use his own expression - to "digest" the innovative ideas of Keynes in the more traditional Walrasian theory lead to the loss of more genuinely revolutionary ideas of Keynes.

    Full Text Available Resumen: En este artículo se propone un método para rellenar huecos en objetos 3D. La idea principal es la de utilizar un algoritmo de restauración de imágenes para reconstruir las partes que se han de completar. Para ello es necesario hacer una transformación de los datos de la superficie 3D en datos de imagen 2D. Por tanto, el algoritmo propuesto parte de una etapa inicial de identificación de huecos. A continuación se hace la selección, para cada hueco, de una porción de malla representativa. Seguidamente se calcula el punto de vista o plano de proyección adecuado para obtener una imagen de rango de esa porción de malla. A la imagen de rango obtenida se le aplica el algoritmo de restauración de imagen. Finalmente, se aplica una transformación inversa 2D a 3D y se integra el éresultado con la malla inicial. Se trata de un algoritmo robusto, válido para diversos tipos de huecos y diferentes tamaños de los mismos. Abstract: In this work a method for filling holes in 3D meshes based on a 2D image restoration algorithm is expounded. To do that, data must be converted to a suitable input format, a 3D to 2D transformation is executed by projecting the 3D surface onto a grid. Therefore, the proposed algorithm starts by a first stage of holes identification. Then, a meaningful mesh portiéon is choosen for each hole. Afterward, the suitable plane of projection must be computed to get the range image of the mesh portion. Later, it is applied the restauration image algorithm to the range image. Finally, an inverse transformation 2D to 3D is performed and the new produced data are integrated with the initial mesh. The result is a robust algorithm which works correctly with several kind of holes and for di_erent sizes of them.

    Concerning the production of electrolytic hydrogen, the goal of present R and D is to develop advanced hydrogen generator based on proton exchange membrane (PEM) water electrolysers. PEM-based water electrolysis offers a number of advantages, such as ecological safety, high gas purity (more than 99.99% for hydrogen), the possibility of producing compressed gases (up to 200 bar) for direct pressurized storage without additional power inputs, etc. PEM electrolysers are considered as rather attractive devices to accelerate the transition to the hydrogen economy and develop a hydrogen infrastructure network (for example for the development of re-filling stations for cars, using electric power stations at night hours and renewable energy sources). The work presented here result from a cooperation between Hydrogen Energy and Plasma Technology Institute (HEPTI) of Russian Research Center (RRC) 'Kurchatov Institute', Universite Paris - Sud XI and Compagnie d'Etudes des Technologies de l'Hydrogene. This project is supported by the Commission of the European Communities within the frame of the 6. Framework Programme (GenHyPEM, STREP no 019802). (authors)

Questo articolo  avanza la provocatoria ipotesi per la quale, con probabilità, se il sussidio da un lato sostiene il teatro, dall'alto ne sopprime l'innovazione e che, forse, il teatro funzioni al meglio come genere fuori dalla legge, libero dal controllo pubblico mascherato da sostegno. Abstract – EN As the world well knows, austerity cuts in Europe mean that small-to-medium theatre companies are facing an uncertain future, to the extent that the golden age of funding is coming to an end. But has the theatre this funding has produced been golden in itself?

    Full Text Available En 2008, le secteur du film indépendant américain a connu pas moins de trois fermetures de “specialty film divisions” par leur compagnie mère, alors que deux ans plus tard la puissante Miramax était vendue par Disney. Cette consolidation a créé un secteur aujourd’hui contrôlé par une poignée de filiales de majors et quelques compagnies diversifiées isolées. Ces compagnies investissent de façon croissante dans des films indépendants comme Juno (2007 et Sideways (2006 dont les résultats commerciaux sont presque comparables à ceux des films des grands studios, provoquant en retour des réactions vives de critiques s’interrogeant sur leur statut même d’indépendants. Alors que la production “indie” semble converger vers les productions des majors (et leurs pratiques marketing, la partie « basse » du spectre des indépendants a vu se développer des modèles qui passent outre la distribution traditionnelle en salles. Ces modèles visent à établir un lien direct avec le spectateur qui consomme des films à domicile et sont caractérisés par des pratiques telles que la vente de DVD sur les propres sites internet des réalisateurs ainsi qu’une utilisation innovante et extensive des réseaux sociaux. Le faible coût de ces pratiques permet à certains de ces films d’atteindre une rentabilité permettant aux auteurs de poursuivre leur œuvre sans compromis.

    Full Text Available In 1690, on the orders of Simon van der Stel, officials of the Verenigde Oostindische Compagnie (VOC interviewed one Nicolao Almede, a 'free black man of Mozambique' who had recently arrived at the Cape as a sailor aboard the English ship John and Mary. Almede informed his interlocutors about the country inland from the coast between Mozambique and Delagoa Bay (now Maputo Bay, into which he had previously ventured as a merchant. Although he does not mention the legendary name of Monomotapa, he does offer early descriptions of the Changamire dynasty, as well as the animals and people of the region, including its fabulous wealth. Some of the place names he mentioned are well known, while others cannot now be traced, perhaps because he was using indigenous rather than Portuguese names. The record of the interview concludes with Almede's description of mermaids, and the fact that their teeth could be had in the market at Mozambique. Together with producing a transcription and translation of the document this article explores it through a close reading to offer some speculations about the interweaving of legend and fact in the human and natural history of southern Africa in reports such as that of Almede.

    The electrical industry plays an important role in the economic development of the country by ensuring that the energy needs of the industrial sector are met and by responding to the betterment of the life of the population. After the country achieved its independence in 1960, successive governments organized this important instrument of the economy as a vertically integrated, monopolistic public utility. With the economic crisis of the 1980s, the public enterprise model was quickly reaching its limit of usefulness. This was the result of a slowdown in the growth of demand, difficulties in supporting the existing rates, financing investment through international loans, and servicing the accumulated debt. As a result of the extreme difficulties affecting the industry at the beginning of the 1990s, the government decided to reform the electrical sector by separating generation and transmission from regulation, i. e., it relinquished daily operation of the generation and the transmission system to a private company (la Compagnie Ivoirienne d'Electricite (CIE)) and confined its activities to regulation, strategic policy formulation and rate setting. A second reform was undertaken in 1998 aimed at introducing competition in the production of electricity and separating the generation, transmission and distribution functions. The deregulation is now complete, nevertheless, anxiety remains with regard to the real efficiencies that the introduction of competition in generation and distribution will produce.

    1977-01-01

    Since 1953, in France, the Commissariat a' l'Energie Atomique (CEA) has studied and developed the gaseous diffusion process. EURODIF was formed as a joint venture to perform a feasibility study based on research and development carried out by CEA and on engineering and cost data put together by USSI. EURODIF, backed by the governments of Belgium, France, Italy, and Spain decided to start a plant in late 1981 to be located in France in the Tricastin district of the Rhone Valley. The general layout of the gaseous diffusion plant included the four process buildings, the buildings where UF 6 products are received and delivered, the central control room, the switchyard, the cooling towers, the surface coating workshop, and ancillary units and various workshops. Firm sales cover the whole production until 1990, nearly 90% of which is being made to the shareholders. Customers were found in Japan, Switzerland, and the Federal Republic of Germany. COREDIF, Compagnie de Realisation d'Usines de Diffusion Gazeuse, was incorporated in 1975 to build in Europe a second enrichment plant using gaseous diffusion. The EURODIF/COREDIF complex, with a production capacity of more than 20 million separative work units per year, is one the the most important private suppliers of enrichment services. Contracts are proposed that are flexible enough to meet the requirements of each electricity producer

  9. Towards abundant and pollution-free energy. Laser nuclear fusion

    Robieux, J.

    2008-01-01

    This book shows that it is now practically certain that by the year 2080 laser nuclear fusion will allow to produce an abundant and relatively cheap energy. Thanks to this energy, it will be possible to convert a mixture of CO 2 , H 2 and water into an automotive fuel or a food product. Laser nuclear fusion will use deuterium as fuel and thus oil and gas will become useless. Also, thanks to this new energy source, global warming and starvation will be overcome. The laser fusion concept was introduced by J. Robieux in 1962 just after the discovery of the laser. This idea was immediately accepted and sustained by the French President De Gaulle. The research on laser fusion was initially undertaken at the Marcoussis research centre from the Compagnie Generale d'Electricite (General Electricity Company - CGE). In 1967, the lasers built at Marcoussis were 30 times more powerful than any other laser in the rest of world. A cooperation with the USA started at that time and is still going on today. In 1969, the CEA centre of Limeil realized the world premiere experiments of laser fusion. This book presents the historical aspects and the state-of-the-art of this technology today. It is written in two parts, the first part does not require any scientific knowledge and is accessible to everybody, while the second part can be understood only by readers having a basic scientific background.

    Full Text Available Mon exposé vise à décrire les termes du débat sur l’identité culturelle et politique napolitaine au tourment des années soixante-dix, à travers le concept anthropologique et musical de napoletanità ou « napolétanité » élaboré par les élites musicales de la ville, comme Bennato et Daniele, qui rapprochaient, dans les rythmes de leurs chansons, les sonorités traditionnelles à celles du rock et du blues. De plus, la relecture philologique, par les musiciens-musicologues de la Nouvelle Compagnie de Chant Populaire, de l’imposant passé musical et populaire urbain de la ville, se situait à l’opposé des modules expressifs mélangés des chanteurs populaires néo-mélodiques. La problématique dans ce cas concerne la définition d’une esthétique sociale qui parvient a posteriori à configurer la notion d’identité baroque, « ba-rock » ou néo-baroque napolitain qui, à travers le pathétique, les excès, les croisements des sonorités, est capable de garder toujours à l’esprit une notion de centralité, un point de repère entre normalité et excès.

    There are linear accelerators (Sagittaire and Saturne accelerators produced by Compagnie Generale de Radiologie (CGR/MeV) Corporation) which produce broad, flat electron fields by magnetically scanning the relatively narrow electron beam as it emerges from the accelerator vacuum system. A semi-empirical model, which mimics the scanning action of this type of accelerator, was developed for the generation of dose distributions in homogeneous media. The model employs the dose distributions of the scanning electron beams. These were measured with photographic film in a polystyrene phantom by turning off the magnetic scanning system. The mean deviation calculated from measured dose distributions is about 0.2%; a few points have deviations as large as 2 to 4% inside of the 50% isodose curve, but less than 8% outside of the 50% isodose curve. The model has been used to generate the electron beam library required by a modified version of a commercially-available computerized treatment-planning system. (The RAD-8 treatment planning system was purchased from the Digital Equipment Corporation. It is currently available from Electronic Music Industries

    In 1883, the chemist Louis-Marie Rousseau (1849-1930) creats the "Compagnie hygiénique française" (French Hygienic Company). The company manufactures and sells the "Poudre de viande Rousseau" (Rousseau meat powder) and the "Chocolat Rousseau" (Rousseau Chocolate) by methods developed and patented by the pharmacist. Ten years after a successful collaboration, L.-M. Rousseau separates from his associates and founds the "Chocolaterie spéciale d'Ermont" (Special Chocolate factory of Ermont) in the village of Ermont near Paris. Here is manufactured the "Chocolat Rationnel des pharmaciens français" (Rational Chocolate of French pharmacists), hygienic chocolate sold only in pharmacies. The factory is also a pharmaceutical laboratory where is extracted theobromine from waste vegetable substances of cocoa. It then produces the "Théobromine Rousseau cristallisée" (crystallized Rousseau's Theobromine) sold as tablets, then the "Théosol" that will be commercialized until the middle of 1930s.

    The geothermal plant of Clichy-sous-Bois has been operating for 2 years and covers the needs of 3,400 equivalent-dwellings, including a sport-hall, 2 schools, the town-hall and 7 low-cost groups of flats. Geothermal energy covers 65% of the energy yearly global consumption for heating and sanitary hot water, i.e. 35,151 MWh. Thus, 3,195 TOE are saved each year. In December, 1979, the town of Clichy-sous-bois delegated their sponsorship to the Societe d'equipement et d'amenagement du territoire du departement de la Seine-Saint-Denis - SODETAT 93 for the realization of the geothermal operation. The production and injection wells were drilled between July and September, 1981. The Dogger aquifer was encountered at 1,800 m deep, with a temperature of 70,8/sup 0/C and an exploitation yield of 200m/sup 3//h. Surface works started in March 1982 and were completed in November of the same year. Apart from the geothermal power plant, the network comprises 11 exchange substations and a distribution network of 2,700 m long with 7,000 m of underground pipes. This plant is exploited by the Compagnie francaise d'exploitation thermique (COFRETH) within the framework of a farmout contract for 20 years, including: production, transportation and public distribution of geothermal heat all over the city of Clichy-sous-Bois.

    Following the formation of United Reprocessors (U.R.G.) in 1976 by British Nuclear Fuels Limited (B.N.F.L.) in the United Kingdom, the Commissariat a l'Energie Atomique (C.E.A.) in France and K.E.W.A. Kernbrennstoff-Wiederaufarbeitungs-Gesellschaft MBH (K.E.W.A.) in Germany, collaboration is now well established for the marketing of their reprocessing services for irradiated oxide fuel from thermal reactors. In addition collaboration in the continued evolution of the technology has progressed and an extensive research and development programme has been established, the results of which are exchanged between the shareholders. During 1976 the U.K. Government has given approval to B.N.F.L. to sign further contracts with foreign customers, subject to certain conditions. In France, the fuel cycle activities of the C.E.A. have been vested in a new company (Compagnie Generale Des Matieres Nucleaires (C.O.G.E.M.A.)) and their La Hague plant has commenced reprocessing operations on irradiated oxide fuel. In Germany, an agreement has been signed between K.E.W.A. and P.W.K. for the pre-project study for the proposed German plant. Against this background this paper reviews the present status of reprocessing by the shareholders of U.R.G. and the prospects for reprocessing

    This report presents the temporary results for the year 2005 of the power generation and transportation/distribution in France. Power generation data come from the official exhaustive annual inquiry acknowledged by the national council of statistical information (CNIS). It concerns all power producers, like EDF, Compagnie Nationale du Rhone (CNR), Societe Nationale d'Electricite et de Thermique (SNET), Societe Hydroelectrique du Midi (SHEM), and some independent producers who generate electricity for their own needs or for the supply of the grid (about 3000 companies). Data relative to power transportation and distribution are established by another administrative annual inquiry addressed to utilities (EDF-Reseau de Distribution, local distribution companies) and to the power transportation network manager (RTE EDF-Transport). The statistical results presented in this document are established from data settled on June 11, 2007. In a context of market liberalization, these two inquiries are of particular importance. They represent a measurement tool of the public authorities' action in favor of the security of supplies, and they allow to have available a detailed, reliable and regularly updated description of France's power generation and transportation facilities by energy source and by geographical area.

    This paper reports a survey on solar heat utilization technologies conducted in fiscal 1983 in accordance with a scientific cooperation agreement signed by the Japanese Government and the French Government. The survey was carried out by two employees with the solar technology development office of the New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization who were dispatched to France on a tour in the period March 13-24. Concerning the 'French Photovoltaic Program 1982-1986,' knowledge on the goal of the program, long-term research and development, and budgetary matters were obtained at the AFME (French Energy Management Agency) head office and its branches. Relations of AFME with EC (European Community) projects were clarified. The photovoltaic power system (50kW) of Nice Airport is one of the EC projects, and was built thanks to financial aids by EC and AFME. The power system is now in service as a power source for electronic equipment in the airport management building and for taxi lights installed on the ground. The CGE (Compagnie General d'Electricite) central laboratory and the Rhone Poulenc Specialites Chimique were visited, when information on the research and development of a ribbon crystal pulling process and solar-grade silicon was acquired.

Timing of intravitreal therapy (IVT is critical to prevent vision loss and local clinics lacked capacity to treat patients appropriately. We aimed to improve capacity for IVT by nurse injections.Materials and methods: A multidisciplinary prospective service-improvement process was undertaken at two adjacent general hospitals in the northwest of England. IVT injections by nurses were a principal component of solution development. After we had obtained appropriate institutional approval, experienced ophthalmic nurses were trained, supervised, and assessed to undertake IVT. Ophthalmologists directly supervised the first 200 injections, and a retina specialist was always on site.Results: Nurses undertook 3,355 intravitreal injections between June 2012 and November 2013, with minor adverse events (0.3% subconjunctival hemorrhage and corneal abrasion. There were no patient complaints at either hospital.Conclusion: Experienced ophthalmic nurses quickly learned how to perform such injections safely. IVT by nurses was well accepted by patients and staff. Hospital A trained three nurses sequentially for improved flexibility in scheduling. Novel use of appropriately trained nonmedical staff can improve efficiency and access in an overburdened service with time-sensitive disease. Retinal assessment was undertaken by ophthalmologists only. Improved access to IVT

    Atmospheric water vapour has been acknowledged as an essential climate variable. Weather prediction and hazard assessment systems benefit from real-time observations, whereas long-term records contribute to climate studies. Nowadays, ground-based GNSS products have become widely employed, complementing satellite observations over the oceans. Although the past decade has seen a significant development of the GNSS infrastructure in Central and South America, its potential for atmospheric water vapour monitoring has not been fully exploited. With this in mind, we have performed a regional, seven-year long and homogeneous analysis, comprising 136 GNSS tracking stations, obtaining high-rate and continuous observations of column integrated water vapour and troposphere zenith total delay (Bianchi et al. 2016). As preliminary application for this data set, we have estimated local water vapour trends, their significance, and their relation with specific climate regimes. We have found evidence of drying at temperate regions in South America, at a rate of about 2% per decade, while a slow moistening of the troposphere over tropical regions is also weakly suggested by our results. Furthermore, we have assessed the regional performance of the empirical model GPT2w to blindly estimate troposphere delays. The model fairly reproduces the observed mean delays, including their annual and semi-annual variations. Nevertheless, a long-term evaluation has shown systematical biases, up to 20 mm, probably inherited form the underling atmospheric reanalysis. Additionally, the complete data set has been made openly available at a scientific repository (doi:10.1594/PANGAEA.858234). References: C. Bianchi, L. Mendoza, L. Fernandez, M. P. Natali, A. Meza, J.

    Full Text Available Natalie R Stokes,1 Brett W Dietz,1 Jackson J Liang2 1Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania, 2Cardiovascular Division, Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA, USAAbstract: Dyspnea is a common chief complaint in the emergency department, with over 4 million visits annually in the US. Establishing the correct diagnosis can be challenging, because the subjective sensation of dyspnea can result from a wide array of underlying pathology, including pulmonary, cardiac, neurologic, psychiatric, toxic, and metabolic disorders. Further, the presence of dyspnea is linked with increased mortality in a variety of conditions, and misdiagnosis of the cause of dyspnea leads to poor patient-level outcomes. In combination with the history and physical, efficient, and focused use of laboratory studies, the various cardiopulmonary biomarkers can be useful in establishing the correct diagnosis and guiding treatment decisions in a timely manner. Use and interpretation of such tests must be guided by the clinical context, as well as an understanding of the current evidence supporting their use. This review discusses current standards and research regarding the use of established and emerging cardiopulmonary laboratory markers in the evaluation of acute dyspnea, focusing on recent evidence assessing the diagnostic and prognostic utility of various tests. These markers include brain natriuretic peptide (BNP and N-terminal prohormone (NT-proBNP, mid-regional peptides proatrial NP and proadrenomedullin, cardiac troponins, D-dimer, soluble ST2, and galectin 3, and included is a discussion on the use of arterial and venous blood gases.Keywords: cardiopulmonary, emergency, heart failure, troponin, BNP, galectin 3, MR-proANP, MR-proADM

However, for carrier detection and prenatal diagnosis, direct detection of disease-correlated mutations is needed. To speed up and simplify mutation screening in genes, new technologies are developed. In this study, a heat-transfer method is evaluated as a mutation-detection technology in entire exons of the phenylalanine hydroxylase (PAH gene. This method is based on the change in heat-transfer resistance (Rth upon thermal denaturation of dsDNA (double-stranded DNA on nanocrystalline diamond. First, ssDNA (single-stranded DNA fragments that span the size range of the PAH exons were successfully immobilized on nanocrystalline diamond. Next, it was studied whether an Rth change could be observed during the thermal denaturation of these DNA fragments after hybridization to their complementary counterpart. A clear Rth shift during the denaturation of exon 5, exon 9, and exon 12 dsDNA was observed, corresponding to lengths of up to 123 bp. Finally, Rth was shown to detect prevalent single-nucleotide polymorphisms, c.473G>A (R158Q, c.932T>C (p.L311P, and c.1222C>T (R408W, correlated with phenylketonuria, displaying an effect related to the different melting temperatures of homoduplexes and heteroduplexes.Keywords: mutation detection, heat-transfer resistance, melting temperature, nanocrystalline diamond, persistence length

Management of multi-casualty incidents in mountain rescue. High Alt Med Biol. 00:000-000, 2018. Multi-Casualty Incidents (MCI) occur in mountain areas. Little is known about the incidence and character of such events, and the kind of rescue response. Therefore, the International Commission for Mountain Emergency Medicine (ICAR MEDCOM) set out to provide recommendations for the management of MCI in mountain areas. Details of MCI occurring in mountain areas related to mountaineering activities and involving organized mountain rescue were collected. A literature search using (1) PubMed, (2) national mountain rescue registries, and (3) lay press articles on the internet was performed. The results were analyzed with respect to specific aspects of mountain rescue. We identified 198 MCIs that have occurred in mountain areas since 1956: 137 avalanches, 38 ski lift accidents, and 23 other events, including lightning injuries, landslides, volcanic eruptions, lost groups of people, and water-related accidents. General knowledge on MCI management is required. Due to specific aspects of triage and management, the approach to MCIs may differ between those in mountain areas and those in urban settings. Mountain rescue teams should be prepared to manage MCIs. Knowledge should be reviewed and training performed regularly. Cooperation between terrestrial rescue services, avalanche safety authorities, and helicopter crews is critical to successful management of MCIs in mountain areas.

Eszopiclone, a short-acting nonbenzodiazepine hypnotic agent developed for the treatment of insomnia, has been available in Europe since 1992 and in the US since 2005. Although not yet evaluated for transient insomnia in older adults, eszopiclone has been shown to be safe and efficacious for short-term treatment (2 weeks of chronic, primary insomnia in older adults (64–91 years. Clinical studies in younger adults (mean = 44 years have shown eszopiclone can be used for 6–12 months without evidence of problems. Because the oldest participant in these longer-term trials was 69, it not known whether eszopiclone is effective for older adults [particularly the old old (75–84 years and oldest old (85+] when used over longer periods. This is unfortunate, because older individuals frequently suffer from chronic insomnia. Cognitive-behavioral therapy for insomnia, which effectively targets the behavioral factors that maintain chronic insomnia, represents an attractive treatment alternative or adjuvant to eszopiclone for older adults. To date, no studies have compared eszopiclone to other hypnotic medications or to nonpharmacological interventions, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy for insomnia, in older adults. All of the clinical trials reported herein were funded by Sepracor. This paper provides an overview of the literature on eszopiclone with special emphasis on its use for the treatment of late-life insomnia. Specific topics covered include pharmacology, pharmacodynamics, pharmacokinetics, clinical trial data, adverse events, drug interactions, tolerance/dependence, and economics/cost considerations for older adults.

    8-hydroxy-2'-deoxyguanosine (8-OH-dG), an oxidation product of the nucleotide deoxyguanosine (dG) was used as a biomarker to assess oxidative damage in brain and gill tissues of yellow bullhead catfish (Ameiurus natalis; n = 18) inhabiting an abandoned reactor reservoir contaminated with low levels of d137 Cs (Pond B, Savannah River Site, SC). DNA was isolated by chloroform-isoamyl extraction, enzymatically digested with Nuclease P1/Calf Intestinal Phosphatase, and analyzed by HPLC with electrochemical detection.Length, weight, age, condition and muscle 137 Cs activity of each fish were also determined. Concentrations of 8-OH-dG were greater in brain than in gill tissues. 8-OH-dG in gill tissues decreased as condition of fish increased, but as age increased, the effect of condition declined. Brain 8-OH-dG concentration was not related to age or condition of fish, but was greater in females and the interaction between gender and 137 Cs was significant. Brain 8-OH-dG was positively associated with muscle 137 Cs concentration among females, but was unrelated to 137 Cs concentration in males. At lower 137 Cs concentrations, females tended to have fewer oxidative DNA adducts in brian than did males. Deposition of somatic lipids into eggs may provide females some anti-oxidant benefit by diminishing the contribution of lipid peroxidation to DNA damage. 8-OH-dG is a sensitive biomarker of low-level radiation exposure, however, its application in fish requires consideration of factors such as gender, age, body-condition, and the tissue type sampled

The attenuated S. enterica Typhimurium strain χ4550 was engineered to express truncated human interleukin-2 and renamed SalpIL2. Previously, we observed that a single oral administration of SalpIL2 reduced tumor number and volume, while significantly increasing local and systemic natural killer (NK cell populations in an experimental metastasis model. Here we report that in nontumor-bearing mice, a single oral dose of SalpIL2 resulted in increased splenic cytotoxic T and NK cell populations that returned to control levels by 4 weeks post oral administration. Though SalpIL2 was detected in mouse tissues for up to 10 weeks, no prolonged alterations in peripheral blood serum chemistry or complete blood cell counts were observed. Similarly, comparative histopathological analysis of tissues revealed no significant increase in pyogranulomas in SalpIL2-treated animals with respect to saline controls. In Rag-1 knockout mice, which have severely impaired B and T cell function, SalpIL2 reduced growth of hepatic metastases. Furthermore, SalpIL2 altered expression of several proinflammatory cytokines and chemokines in the serum of mice with pulmonary osteosarcoma metastases. These data further suggest that SalpIL2 is avirulent and induces a cell-mediated antitumor response.Keywords: Salmonella Typhimurium, natural killer cells, interleukin-2

    The qualities of uranium oxide, in particular its good in-pile characteristics and its resistance to corrosion by the usual heat-exchange fluids, have led to this material being chose at the present time as a nuclear fuel in many power reactors, either planned or under construction. A great effort has been made these last few years in France in studying processes for transforming powdered uranium oxide into a dense material with satisfactory behaviour in a neutron flux. The laboratories at Saclay have studied the physico-chemical features of the phenomena accompanying the calcination of uranium peroxide or ammonium uranate to give uranium trioxide, and the subsequent reduction of the latter to dioxide as well as the sintering of the powders obtained. This work has made it possible on one hand to prepare powder of known specific surface area, and on the other to show the overriding influence of this factor, all other things being equal, on the behaviour of powders during sintering in a hydrogen atmosphere.

    The French mining industry in 1995 continued to follow the overall trend of the past 5 to 10 years characterized mainly by: 1)a decline in the production of most energy materials: oil, coal, uranium. This decline will probably be further accentuated over the next two years with the planned closure of Lodeve (U), Forbach, La Mure and Carmaux (coal). Gas production, however, has remained relatively stable at 4.7 to 5 billion m''3 per year. 2)a scarcity of metal ore mines in Metropolitan France 3)an increase in the production of gold that, in 1995, came close to 6 tonnes in Metropolitan France and reached 8.4 tonnes with French Guiana. 4)the development of metal ore mining in the DOM-TOM 5) divergent developments in the industrial mineral sector: downward trends for sulfur, talc, andalusite, diatomite and silica; upward trends for kaolin, mica, feldspar and salt. Although overall the decline in mine production continued, the panorama does include some positive aspects: 1)France's independence in the energy sector exceeded the half-way mark two years ago and 1995 saw an appreciable decrease in the nation's energy bill compared to 1994. 2)French companies involved in metal mining have adapted themselves to world trends: Cogema has diversified its uranium sources mainly through its mining interests in Canada; Eramet has strengthened its activities by becoming the majority shareholder of Comilog, a manganese producer in Gabon. France also has mining interests in Africa, South America and Europe through LaSource Compagnie Miniere (BRGM and Normandy) created in 1995 3) France's position and production in the industrial mineral sector are significant at European scale, if not at world scale, as regards andalusite, diatomite, kaolin, mica, feldspar, sulfur, potassium, salt and industrial silica. Finally, mention must be made of the increasing environmental awareness by the French authorities and mining companies. This has resulted in a major rehabilitation of mine sites by

    Aeromagnetic data belonging to the State Company of Geology and Mining of Iraq (GEOSURV) have been recovered from magnetic tapes and early paper maps. In 1974 a national airborne survey was flown by the French firm Compagnie General de Geophysique (CGG). Following the survey the magnetic data were stored on magnetic tapes within an air conditioned archive run by GEOSURV. In 1990, the power supply to the archive was cut resulting in the present-day poor condition of the tapes. Frontier Processing Company and the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) have been able to recover over 99 percent of the original digital data from the CGG tapes. Preliminary reprocessing of the data yielded a total magnetic field anomaly map that reveals fine structures not evident in available published maps. Successful restoration of these comprehensive, high quality digital datasets obviates the need to resurvey the entire country, thereby saving considerable time and money. These data were delivered to GEOSURV in a standard format for further analysis and interpretation. A parallel effort by GETECH concentrated on recovering the legacy gravity data from the original field data sheets archived by IPC (Iraq Petroleum Company). These data have been compiled with more recent GEOSURV sponsored surveys thus allowing for the first time a comprehensive digital and unified national gravity database to be constructed with full principal facts. Figure 1 shows the final aeromagnetic and gravity data coverage of Iraq. The only part of Iraq lacking gravity and aeromagnetic data coverage is the mountainous areas of the Kurdish region of northeastern Iraq. Joint interpretation of the magnetic and gravity data will help guide future geophysical investigations by GEOSURV, whose ultimate aim is to discover economical mineral and energy resources. ?? 2011 Society of Exploration Geophysicists.

    Compagnie Parisienne des Asphaltes (CPA; Paris) and its subsidiary Pacsud -owned 65% by CPA and 35% by Shell Chimie (Paris) - have inaugurated their new chemicals storage site at Lavera, France, in the Europort South complex near Marseilles. The facilities, with 60,000-m.t./year capacity, also include a barreling plant that will have output of up to 250 bbl/hour when it comes onstream next spring. Total investment for these facilities amount to F122 million ($22.5 million), including F22 million for the barreling unit. CPA, France's number two storage specialist, after LB Chimie (Paris), is jointly owned by investment company Union Normandie (60%), Elf Aquitaine (Paris; 20%), and Total (Paris; 20%). Adding to its existing French storage sites at Dunkirk and Rouen, CPA says it decided to build on the Pacsud venture because it considered it attractive to invest in the petroleum and petrochemical complex of Fos-Berre-Lavera, particularly since the present trend in the oil and chemical industries is to subcontract all ancillary functions, especially logistics. CPA general manager Rafic Charles Rathle says that customer requirements and the role of the service provider are changing. With that in mid, CPA, in addition to providing storage terminals, converts its depots into distribution and packing centers. At Lavera the company has taken over storage, blending, and barreling operations for Pacsud and its direct customers. For example, Pacsud has a long-term contract with Shell Chimie for the latter's additive production at a 10,000-m.t./year rate. Another long-term contract is being negotiated, but the identity of the customer was not revealed

    Full Text Available Con il cambiare dei tempi, sono cambiate anche le priorità nell’ambito sempre più vasto degli animali da compagnia. Se, infatti, fino allo scorso decennio chi si occupava di ortopedia veterinaria aveva a che fare esclusivamente con pazienti traumatizzati, ora l’ortopedia e la traumatologia veterinaria devono fare i conti sempre più spesso con le patologie articolari. I motivi di questa inversione di tendenza sono molti e di diverso genere, certamente i più influenti riguardano la diffusione di soggetti atleti che sviluppano specifiche patologie, l’allungamento della vita media che espone i pazienti a malattie articolari degenerative un tempo prerogativa dell’uomo e la presenza di razze canine particolarmente predisposte a tali patologie. A ciò si aggiunga l’esigenza crescente dei proprietari degli animali, di comprendere a fondo quali siano le migliori cure per i propri compagni. Per questi motivi lo specialista in Ortopedia degli animali domestici, Filippo Maria Martini, ha redatto Patologie articolari nel cane e nel gatto: un volume che non vuole essere un manuale sulle tecniche chirurgiche (nonostante al suo interno vengano comunque descritte, piuttosto un manuale pratico in grado da una parte di fornire gli strumenti necessari per comprendere, interpretare e diagnosticare le patologie articolari; dall’altra di dare le basi teoriche per impostare un protocollo terapeutico in modo corretto ed emettere una prognosi adeguata. Tutto ciò nella convinzione che un buon clinico non possa limitarsi ad eseguire una visita e ad impostare una terapia, ma debba necessariamente stilare un elenco di esami utili ai fini della definizione della diagnosi, discuterne con il proprietario e consigliare il più adeguato protocollo diagnostico e terapeutico.

    Human epidemiological data provide the most important basis for assessing risks of radon exposures. However, additional insight into the nature of exposure-response relationships is provided by animal experimentation and dosimetric determinations. Animal studies have now been conducted for more than 50 years to examine the levels of pollutants in underground mines that were responsible for the respiratory effects observed among miners. This work has emphasized respiratory cancer and the interaction of radon with other agents, such as ore dust, diesel-engine-exhaust fumes and cigarette smoke. The more recent data on radon-daughter inhalation exposures were provided by two American research centers, The University of Rochester (UR) and the Pacific Northwest Laboratory (PNL), and by the Compagnie Generale des Matieres Nucleaires (COGEMA) laboratory in France. Approximately 2000 mice, 100 rats and 80 dogs were employed in the completed UR studies, begun in the mid 1950s; 800 hamsters, 5000 rats and 100 dogs in the ongoing PNL studies, begun in the late 1960s; and 10,000 rats in the ongoing COGEMA studies, also begun in the late 1960s. More complete updated biological effects, data resulting from chronic radon-daughter inhalation exposures of mice, hamsters, rats and beagle dogs were examined. Emphasis on the carcinogenic effects of radon-decay product exposure, including the influences of radon-daughter exposure rate, unattached fraction and disequilibrium, and co-exposures to other pollutants. Plausible values for the radon (radon-daughter) lifetime lung-cancer risk coefficients are also provided. 13 refs., 1 fig., 1 tab

    CERCA (Compagnie pour l'Etude et la Realisation de Combustibles Atomiques) is a private French Company that was set up more than 20 years ago, in 1957. The head office of our Company is located in Paris. We have an industrial center at Bonneuil-sur-Marne near Paris, and a research and production center at Romans, between the cities of Lyon and Marseille in southern France. Throughout its existence, CERCA has many times brought a significant contribution to the design and manufacturing procedures of fuels of all kinds: - graphite-gas - heavy water, gas cooled (El-4) - heavy water, water cooled (El-3 previous tube and snow crystal designs) - light water - high temperatures and also sophisticated control rods, fuel followers, etc. Among a wide variety of other type of fuel elements CERCA has been involved since 1960 in MTR fuel element production and operates in Romans a production unit capable of 15 to 20,000 fuel plates per year. The backing of our strong R and D department enabled not only to follow the regularly increasing demand for improved characteristics by the reactor designers and users, but also to remain always a little bit ahead of these requirements in order to be able at all times to face new demands. The present international concern about non-proliferation of weapons-grade enriched uranium is now focusing interest on fuel elements with high total uranium contents. The current performance level of our products, that was made possible by our previous R and D programs, is such that we will experience no problems in keeping many low or medium power research reactors in operation. About one year ago, CERCA decided to initiate a program of technological development, to face the problem of the reduction of available enrichment.

    Full Text Available I libri di testo adottati nelle scuole contengono parole sconosciute e costruzioni sintattiche e testuali complesse che rappresentano dei veri e propri “muri linguistici” per gli alunni stranieri che non possiedono una buona conoscenza della lingua italiana. Ciò facilmente determina un divario di competenze tra l’apprendente straniero e i suoi compagni e ritardi scolastici molto spesso incolmabili con conseguente perdita di motivazione e di autostima, senso di frustrazione e isolamento che a volte sfocia in un disagio psico-sociale. Tra gli strumenti adottati dalla scuola italiana per far fronte a questo problema vi sono i testi disciplinari ad alta comprensibilità che, pur mantenendo la maggior parte delle informazioni, le veicolano in una forma più semplice dal punto di vista linguistico. L’articolo fornisce una bibliografia di manuali ad alta comprensibilità il più possibile aggiornata suddivisa per ordine e grado di scuola e per materia scolastica, con l’intento di fornire agli insegnanti un aiuto nella scelta e nel reperimento dei testi.     Language for study:  a bibliography   Textbooks used in schools contain unknown words and complex sentence constructions that create real “linguistic barriers” for foreign students who do not know Italian well.  This creates an abyss between the competence of the foreign learner and his or her classmates and unsuccessful school performance which is often not made up for and leads to a loss of self-esteem, frustration, isolation, and ultimately to psycho-social malaise.  Among the tools utilized in the Italian school system to address this problem are highly comprehensible textbooks which, while containing most of the information, express the content in simpler language.  This article offers an up-dated bibliography of textbooks which are easily understandable, divided according to order and grade of school, for teachers to use in choosing the textbooks for their classes.

    The qualities of uranium oxide, in particular its good in-pile characteristics and its resistance to corrosion by the usual heat-exchange fluids, have led to this material being chose at the present time as a nuclear fuel in many power reactors, either planned or under construction. A great effort has been made these last few years in France in studying processes for transforming powdered uranium oxide into a dense material with satisfactory behaviour in a neutron flux. The laboratories at Saclay have studied the physico-chemical features of the phenomena accompanying the calcination of uranium peroxide or ammonium uranate to give uranium trioxide, and the subsequent reduction of the latter to dioxide as well as the sintering of the powders obtained. This work has made it possible on one hand to prepare powder of known specific surface area, and on the other to show the overriding influence of this factor, all other things being equal, on the behaviour of powders during sintering in a hydrogen atmosphere. The work has led to defining two methods for sintering stoichiometric uranium oxide of high density. The technological study of the preparation of the powder and its industrial production are carried out at the plant of Le Bouchet which produces at the moment powders of known characteristics suitable for sintering in hydrogen at 1650 deg. C without prior grinding. The industrial sintering is carried out by the Compagnie industrielle des Combustibles Atomiques Frittes who has set up a pilot plant having a capacity of 25 metric tons/year, for the Commissariat l'Energie Atomique and has been operating this plant since May 1958. This plant is presented by a film entitled 'uranium oxide'. (author) [fr

  10. Loading and transport of high-active waste (HAW) with the TN85 flask in 2008

    2009-01-01

    As a part of the operation of nuclear power plants, it is essential to safely manage the radioactive waste. With new developments in science and technology, it is a dynamic process to adapt procedures, equipment and flasks to be used in the future. This is a task for specialists - a task for GNS Gesellschaft fuer Nuklear-Service mbH and for TN International. Until 1994 reprocessing of spent fuel from German nuclear power plants was mandatory for the Utilities (EVU) in Germany. Basis for the reprocessing was the German Atomic Act. The German Utilities concluded contracts on reprocessing with Compagnie Generale des Matieres Nucleaires (COGEMA, now AREVA NC) in France and British Nuclear Fuels plc (BNFL, now INS) in England. The total amount to be reprocessed comes to 5309 t HM contracted to AREVA NC and 768 t HM contracted to INS. The waste generated from reprocessing - or an equivalent amount of radioactive material - has to be returned to the country of origin. In 1979 already an exchange of notes took place between the German and the French government with the obligation of both sides to enable and support the return of reprocessing residues or equivalents. The return of high-active waste (HAW) from France has started in 1996 with the first attribution of 28 glass canisters (one flask) to German Utilities by AREVA NC. Until 2007, 75 flasks loaded with vitrified residue (VR) canisters have been transported to Gorleben. For these transports CASTOR registered HAW 20/28 CG flasks have been used. This presentation will give some background information about the last HAW transport in 2008 with the new flask generation of the type TN85. It will also describe the assembly of the new flask, the preparation of the flask for the loading campaign as well as the loading procedure. (orig.)

    Full Text Available De nos jours, la notion d’anglicité est devenue cruciale tant pour le Royaume-Uni que pour les nombreux pays du monde, dans lesquels vivent des citoyens libres et indépendants, qui participent à sa définition. La relation à la culture anglophone, en particulier en Asie, est le produit de l’histoire, et les relations politiques qu’entretiennent les pays indépendants avec l’ancienne métropole se déclinent de façon extrêmement variée, tant dans leur relation à la langue anglaise en tant que moyen de communication que dans la notion d’ethnicité. Le roman de Paul Theroux, Kowloon Tong (1998, en est un bon exemple. Il explore les conséquences du retrait brutal et affligeant d’une compagnie de textile anglais lors de la cession de Hong Kong à la Chine en 1997. Alliant les genres du roman historique, détective et sentimental, il met en scène l’opposition entre les valeurs traditionnelles britanniques qui se retirent et celles de la nouvelle classe dominante chinoise. Yasmine Gooneratne, écrivain du Sri Lanka, insiste, elle aussi, sur les conflits culturels, soit en s’inspirant du thème de son propre déplacement de Colombo à Sydney, en opposant au tourisme de masse les formes enchanteresses du folklore d’autrefois, ou encore en proposant une rencontre entre un riche héritage colonial et l’indépendance toute récente du Sri Lanka des années cinquante et soixante. Ainsi se creuse chez les écrivains contemporains une distance grandissante vis-à-vis de ce que furent au cours des siècles passés les valeurs incontestées de l’anglicité.

    France has been disposing of low-level radioactive waste (LLW) at the Centre de Stockage de la Manche (CSM) since 1969 and now at the Centre de Stockage de l'Aube (CSA) since 1992. In France, several agencies and companies are involved in the development and implementation of LLW technology. The Commissariat a l'Energie Atomic (CEA), is responsible for research and development of new technologies. The Agence National pour la Gestion des Dechets Radioactifs is the agency responsible for the construction and operation of disposal facilities and for wastes acceptance for these facilities. Compagnie Generale des Matieres Nucleaires provides fuel services, including uranium enrichment, fuel fabrication, and fuel reprocessing, and is thus one generator of LLW. Societe pour les Techniques Nouvelles is an engineering company responsible for commercializing CEA waste management technology and for engineering and design support for the facilities. Numatec, Inc. is a US company representing these French companies and agencies in the US. In Task 1.1 of Numatec's contract with Martin Marietta Energy Systems, Numatec provides details on the design, construction and operation of the LLW disposal facilities at CSM and CSA. Lessons learned from operation of CSM and incorporated into the design, construction and operating procedures at CSA are identified and discussed. The process used by the French for identification, selection, and evaluation of disposal technologies is provided. Specifically, the decisionmaking process resulting in the change in disposal facility design for the CSA versus the CSM is discussed. This report provides' all of the basic information in these areas and reflects actual experience to date

    At the Reduced Enrichment for Research and Test Reactors (RERTR) meeting in September 1994, Durand reported that the maximum uranium loading attainable with U 3 Si 2 fuel is about 6.0 g U/cm 3 . The French Commissariat a l'Energie Atomique (CEA) plan to perform irradiation tests with 5 plates at this loading. Compagnie pour L'Etude et La Realisation de Combustibles Atomiques (CERCA) has also fabricated a few uranium nitride (UN) plates with a uranium density in the fuel meat of 7.0 g/cm 3 and found that UN is compatible with the aluminum matrix at temperatures below 500 C. High density dispersion fuels proposed for development include U-Zr(4 wt%)-Nb(2 wt%), U-Mo(5 wt%), and U-Mo(9 wt%). The purpose of this note is to examine the relative neutronic behavior of these high density fuels in a typical light water-reflected and water-moderated MTR-type research reactor. The results show that a dispersion of the U-Zr-Nb alloy has the most favorable neutronic properties and offers the potential for uranium densities greater than 8.0 g/cm 3 . On the other hand, UN is the least reactive fuel because of the relatively large 14 N(n,p) cross section. For a fixed value of k eff , the required 235 U loading per fuel element is least for the U-Zr-Nb fuel and steadily increases for the U-Mo(5%), U-Mo(9%), and UN fuels. Because of volume fraction limitations, the UO 2 dispersions are only useful for uranium densities below 5.0 g/cm 3 . In this density range, however, UO 2 is more reactive than U 3 Si 2

    2014-01-01

    During the twentieth century astronomical imagery was frequently incorporated, by makers of a wide variety of consumer goods, into advertisements which appeared in popular magazines in America. These images were usually intended to suggest a level of precision and reliability for the product associated (at least in the public conscience) with the science of astronomical observation. Perhaps more than any other item encountered in daily life, the personal timepiece was expected to exhibit these attributes. During the prosperous 1920’s, two watch manufacturers in particular used astronomical associations to extoll the quality of their wares. One was the Elgin National Watch Company, an American firm founded in Chicago in 1864 which remained in business until 1968. The other was the Swiss firm Longines (more properly the Compagnie des Montres Longines Francillon S.A.); based in Saint-Imier since its founding in 1832, this firm has been producing luxury watches for 182 years. Both produced full-page ads for wide-circulation magazines such as The National Geographic, The Atlantic Monthly, and The Saturday Evening Post. While enticing readers to purchase a new watch as a gift or for oneself, these ads provided a look into the world of the professional astronomer. Examples of advertisements by these and other watch manufacturers, spanning the period 1897 to 1967 are presented. Particularly amusing is a personal testimonial from the English owner of an American Waltham watch, who had chided Britain’s Astronomer Royal for dropping the Greenwich time ball just a tad too early.

A bilingual native Spanish translator translated the scale from English to Spanish. Subsequently, a bilingual native English translator translated the scale from Spanish to English. The disagreements were resolved by agreement between the research team and translators. Seventy-three patients with hemophilia, aged 13–62 years, were enrolled in the study. The scale was applied twice (2 months apart to evaluate the test–retest reliability.Results: Internal consistency reliability was lower on the Spanish VERITAS-Pro than on the English version. Test–retest reliability was high, ranging from 0.83 to 0.92. No significant differences (P>0.05 were found between test and retest scores in subscales of VERITAS-Pro. In general, Spanish patients showed higher rates of nonadherence than American patients in all subscales.Conclusion: The Spanish version of the VERITAS-Pro has high levels of consistency and empirical validity.

    Physical activity tracking wearable devices have emerged as an increasingly popular method for consumers to assess their daily activity and calories expended. However, whether these wearable devices are valid at different levels of exercise intensity is unknown. The objective of this study was to examine heart rate (HR) and energy expenditure (EE) validity of 3 popular wrist-worn activity monitors at different exercise intensities. A total of 62 participants (females: 58%, 36/62; nonwhite: 47% [13/62 Hispanic, 8/62 Asian, 7/62 black/ African American, 1/62 other]) wore the Apple Watch, Fitbit Charge HR, and Garmin Forerunner 225. Validity was assessed using 2 criterion devices: HR chest strap and a metabolic cart. Participants completed a 10-minute seated baseline assessment; separate 4-minute stages of light-, moderate-, and vigorous-intensity treadmill exercises; and a 10-minute seated recovery period. Data from devices were compared with each criterion via two-way repeated-measures analysis of variance and Bland-Altman analysis. Differences are expressed in mean absolute percentage error (MAPE). For the Apple Watch, HR MAPE was between 1.14% and 6.70%. HR was not significantly different at the start (P=.78), during baseline (P=.76), or vigorous intensity (P=.84); lower HR readings were measured during light intensity (P=.03), moderate intensity (P=.001), and recovery (P=.004). EE MAPE was between 14.07% and 210.84%. The device measured higher EE at all stages (PApple Watch, and Garmin Forerunner 225. An advantage and novel approach of the study is the examination of HR and EE at specific physical activity intensities. Establishing validity of wearable devices is of particular interest as these devices are being used in weight loss interventions and could impact findings. Future research should investigate why differences between exercise intensities and the devices exist. ©Erin E Dooley, Natalie M Golaszewski, John B Bartholomew. Originally published in JMIR

Study design: A retrospective analysis was conducted from a sample of 5 million patients from the IMS Health Real World Data Adjudicated Claims – US database.Methods: Comorbidity in patients with MS was assessed by year (2006–2014, and logistic regression models evaluated the association of age, sex, and region with select comorbidities.Results: The most common comorbidities from 2006 to 2014 were hyperlipidemia and hypertension (25.9%–29.7% of patients within an individual year, followed by gastrointestinal disease (18.4%–21.2% of patients and thyroid disease (12.9%–17.1% of patients. The proportion with a claim for hyperlipidemia increased from 2006 to 2009, was stable from 2009 to 2011, and then declined from 2011 to 2014. The proportion with a claim for hypertension generally increased from 2006 to 2013, then declined from 2013 to 2014. The proportion with a claim for gastrointestinal disease, thyroid disease, and anxiety generally increased from 2006 to 2014. Claims for comorbidities were statistically significantly more likely among older age groups (p<0.05, with the exception of anxiety and alcohol abuse, which were statistically significantly less likely among older age groups. Claims for gastrointestinal disease (OR=0.75, thyroid disease (OR=0.36, chronic lung disease (OR=0.76, arthritis (OR=0.71, anxiety (OR=0.63, and depression (OR=0.69 were statistically significantly less likely among males versus females (all p<0.05.

We sought to evaluate the cost effectiveness of some newer combination therapies in cervical cancer. Patients and methods: A cost effectiveness decision model was used to analyze Gynecologic Oncology Group 240. All regimens were modeled for seven cycles. The regimens studied are as follows: regimen 1, cisplatin/paclitaxel (CP; regimen 2, CP with bevacizumab (CP+B; regimen 3, paclitaxel/topotecan (PT; and regimen 4, PT with bevacizumab (PT+B. Overall survival, cost, and complications were studied. Sensitivity analyses were performed. Results: Mean chemotherapy costs over mean total costs for seven cycles of each follows: CP $571/$32,966; CP+B $61,671/$96,842; PT $9,211/$71,620; and PT+B $70,312/$109,211. Incremental cost-effectiveness ratio (ICER for CP+B was $133,559/quality adjusted life year (QALY. ICER for PT+B was $124,576/QALY. To achieve an incremental ICER for CP+B:CP of <$50,000/QALY gained, the mean overall survival has to increase from 1.1 years with CP to 3.5 years with CP+B. An ICER <$50,000/QALY for the other regimens would take a survival of >10 years for PT and 4.1 years for PT+B. Treating 1,000 women with cervical cancer with CP+B would cost almost double the cost of treating >18,000 women with ovarian cancer annually (carboplatin/paclitaxel. Conclusion: CP is the most cost effective regimen. A 12-month increase in overall survival will not even make the newer combinations cost effective. Currently, the use of bevacizumab is not sustainable at today's costs. Keywords: cervical cancer, chemotherapy, bevacizumab, cost-effectiveness

This study was designed to investigate the influence of surgical removal of a tumor-bearing urogenital organ on CAM use.Methods: From 2007 to 2011, 350 patients underwent major urological surgery for kidney, prostate, or bladder cancer at the Goethe-University Hospital, Frankfurt, Germany. Data from 172 patients (49%, who returned a questionnaire, were retrospectively evaluated using the hospital information system along with the questionnaire to objectify CAM use 2 years before and after surgery.Results: From the 172 patients returning questionnaires, 56 (33% used CAM before and/or after surgery and 116 (67% never used CAM. Of the 56 CAM users, 30 (54% used CAM presurgery and 53 (95% used CAM postsurgery, indicating a significant change of mind about CAM use. Patients of German nationality used CAM significantly more than patients of other nationalities. Higher educational status (high-school diploma or higher was a significant factor in favor of CAM use. The most common type of CAM used before/after surgery was an alternative medical system (63/49%, a manipulative and body-based method (50/19%, and a biological-based therapy (37/32%. Information about CAM, either provided by medical professionals or by other sources, was the main reason determining whether patients used CAM or not.Conclusion: The number of patients using CAM almost doubled after surgical removal of a cancer-bearing organ.

Methods: Archived biopsy specimens of EC were subject to IHC examination of compartmentalized immunoreactivity of nuclear factor kappa B (NF-κB, Sonic Hedgehog (SHH, and GLI family zinc finger 1 (Gli-1, and a labeling index score was assigned to each biomarker. Test prediction was generated by logistic regression predictive modeling, using the labeling index scores for all three analytes from each sample, referring to a validated training set of 167 EC patients. Accuracy of the test was determined by comparing the predicted outcomes with pathologically determined College of American Pathologists tumor response grade. Analytical validity of the test was measured by comparing validation set prediction results obtained in two independent Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendment-certified laboratories, and by measuring concordance between two trained labeling index readers. Results: Specimens from 64 patients that met specific criteria were collected. No technical failure was encountered during the IHC labeling procedures. The logistic regression algorithm generated an area under the curve of 0.96 and 0.85 for the 64 sample cohort in two independent clinical laboratories, respectively, comparing predictive results with the established training set. Positive predictive values of 88% and 82% were also achieved in each laboratory, respectively. A

    The building housing the zero power split table machine for reactor physics studies was officially opened by the Prime Minister, the Right Honourable William McMahon, on 19th June, 1972. Preparation of the Safety Document for the machine continued and the collection began of components for the first reactor assembly which will use fuel already available. An order was placed with CERCA (Compagnie pour Vitude et la R6alisation de Combustibles Atomiques) for delivery of 15 kg 235 U during the first quarter of 1973. Major effort continued to be devoted to the safety analysis of the Commission's other reactors. MOATA was prepared for 100 kW operation, with increased interest in its use for neutron beam work in physics and metallurgy fields. A convenient pneumatic transfer unit is now operational for analysis of uranium ores by delayed neutron analysis and levels down to 0.001 per cent have been detected with reasonable accuracy. A major review of nuclear reactions in the analysis of materials was prepared. Installation commenced on a system of switching and focussing magnets to provide protons and hence neutrons at a point 4 m above the floor and equidistant from the walls and roof of the building. This should reduce scattered neutron return problems with the neutron capture gamma ray studies and the fast neutron transport experiment in thorium metal. Analysis continued at a more intense level on the neutron capture cross section measurements from Oak Ridge National Laboratory. This analysis forms an important aspect of our work as long as our major equipment is unable to compete with the excellent Oak Ridge National Laboratory Electron Linear Accelerator. Collaboration takes the form of material assistance in the analysis of the abundance of information supplied by this facility to which we hope to provide a few confirmatory checkpoints. The advent of the zero power split table machine provided the impetus for a critical examination of the adequacy of our data library

    This report synthesizes the phase 1 results of the joint industrial project, called ''4D Seismic: Technologies, Economics and Issues''. This project was conducted by IFP between November 2003 and April 2004, in collaboration with Compagnie Generale de Geophysique (CGG) and sponsored by Gaz de France and 4. Wave Imaging. Phase 1 offers an objective view of the 4D seismic market over the period 2000-2003. The market has been assessed from IFP extensive databases, gathering 115 4D projects conducted worldwide and from interviews of seven oil companies, both representing 90% of the activity in time-lapse seismic. This study provides sales estimation and sales/projects breakdown by: in-house/subcontracted activity, geography, onshore/offshore, reservoir rocks and recovery methods, technology/methodology, oil companies and service companies. The market of 4D seismic has been split into 4 segments: acquisition, processing, reservoir studies - feasibility, interpretation and seismic history matching -, borehole seismic (acquisition and processing). In addition, the market of passive seismic monitoring, another technique of seismic reservoir monitoring has also been estimated. The main sources, used to build the IFP databases, were: Worldwide Global E and P Service Reports from IHS Energy, World Geophysical News, an extensive bibliographic study through more than 200 articles, abstracts and summaries, a collaboration with CGG. For all market estimations, numbers computed from IFP databases and from interviews of oil companies were extrapolated from 90% to 100%, to quantify the total 4D activity. The estimations obtained were not rounded in order to preserve trends with a consistent computation from one year to another and from one market segment to another, despite uncertainties of about 10%. Quality controls were performed to validate the final estimations: volumes of 4D seismic data, computed from IFP databases, were checked by comparing processed data with acquired data

En 1854, sa carrière est sauvée par Napoléon III lui-même; celui-ci le nomme ambassadeur à Constantinople en pleine guerre de Crimée (3mai 1855. Il a exercé cette fonction pendant cinq années, 1855-1860, période marquée par le Congrès de Paris, par la question des Principautés Roumaines et le début du problème italien, qui a provoqué la démission du ministre des Affaires Etrangères en fonction, Alexandre Walewski, en décembre 1859. Donc, successeur de Walewski, Edouard Thouvenel a occupé la fonction de ministre des Affaires Etrangères jusqu’en 1862, lorsqu’il demissionera. Les années à suivre, il a été le président de la Compagnie de Chemins de Fer d’Est, ensuite grand référendaire du Sénat, en 1865. Thouvenel a tombé malade en 1866 et il est mort le 23 octobre, à seulement 48 années, justement au moment où on préparait son retour à Quay d’Orsay.

  19. Feedback from uncertainties propagation research projects conducted in different hydraulic fields: outcomes for engineering projects and nuclear safety assessment.

    In recent years, in the context of hydraulic risk assessment, much effort has been put into the development of sophisticated numerical model systems able reproducing surface flow field. These numerical models are based on a deterministic approach and the results are presented in terms of measurable quantities (water depths, flow velocities, etc…). However, the modelling of surface flows involves numerous uncertainties associated both to the numerical structure of the model, to the knowledge of the physical parameters which force the system and to the randomness inherent to natural phenomena. As a consequence, dealing with uncertainties can be a difficult task for both modelers and decision-makers [Ioss, 2011]. In the context of nuclear safety, IRSN assesses studies conducted by operators for different reference flood situations (local rain, small or large watershed flooding, sea levels, etc…), that are defined in the guide ASN N°13 [ASN, 2013]. The guide provides some recommendations to deal with uncertainties, by proposing a specific conservative approach to cover hydraulic modelling uncertainties. Depending of the situation, the influencing parameter might be the Strickler coefficient, levee behavior, simplified topographic assumptions, etc. Obviously, identifying the most influencing parameter and giving it a penalizing value is challenging and usually questionable. In this context, IRSN conducted cooperative (Compagnie Nationale du Rhone, I-CiTy laboratory of Polytech'Nice, Atomic Energy Commission, Bureau de Recherches Géologiques et Minières) research activities since 2011 in order to investigate feasibility and benefits of Uncertainties Analysis (UA) and Global Sensitivity Analysis (GSA) when applied to hydraulic modelling. A specific methodology was tested by using the computational environment Promethee, developed by IRSN, which allows carrying out uncertainties propagation study. This methodology was applied with various numerical models and in

    Full Text Available Nous nous proposons d’analyser la sidération et la peur dans la dernière série d’autoportraits faite par Andy Warhol en 1986 qui donnent à voir les subterfuges de l’artiste pour en contrer ou en accompagner les effets. Après une première mise en perspective, nous avons tissé un réseau de correspondances serrées entre ces œuvres et le texte « Méduse et Compagnie » de Roger Caillois sur le travestissement, le camouflage et l’intimidation, en utilisant la micro-analyse tactile, technique inspirée de Carlo Ginzburg en histoire et d’Aloïs Riegl en histoire de l’art. Nous avons pu ainsi mettre en lumière comment, par le médium de la photographie ou de la sérigraphie, l’artiste s’est réinscrit tout en s’en démarquant, dans l’histoire visuelle de ceux qui, depuis Caravage, ont révolutionné le traitement de la peur dans l’image. Nous concluons en soulignant comment la spécificité américaine du cadrage y a introduit un autre rapport au réel.The following article analyses the way fear and shock appear in Andy Warhol’s last self portraits, produced in 1986, through the mechanisms that oppose and accompany it. Using the technique of the tactile micro-analysis inspired by historian Carlo Ginzburg and art historian Aloïs Riegl, we will attempt to decipher the effects of fear and shock by referring to the different stages defined by Roger Caillois as composing fear: travestissement, camouflage, and bullying. This representation of fear through the medium of photography and serigraphy simultaneously conforms to the tradition of the pictorial expressions of fear such as can be seen in Caravaggio, while also renewing the concept by introducing traits more typical of the American psyche: a close up view of the character and a touch of the surreal, which could be considered as the modern form of eternity.

    Full Text Available La modélisation des effets des barrages hydroélectriques nécessite un grand nombre de données d’observation dans chacune des situations concrètes. En zone tropicale ces données sont souvent incomplètes et de nature hétérogène rendant difficile la comparaison entre des situations différentes. En janvier 1994, Electricité de France (EDF : Compagnie Nationale française d’Electricité a procédé à la fermeture du barrage de Petit-Saut sur le fleuve Sinnamary en Guyane française. A cette occasion, un suivi environnemental a été mené sur une période s’étendant depuis 5 années avant la fermeture jusqu’à 7 années après. En ce qui concerne les poissons, trois phases successives dans le processus de colonisation du lac ont été identifiées. Pendant la phase de mise en eau, les captures de poissons ont rapidement augmenté alors que la richesse spécifique diminuait. Une espèce dominait le peuplement. Durant les 2 années qui ont suivi, les captures se sont maintenues à un niveau élevé alors que la richesse spécifique continuait à diminuer. Le peuplement était dominé par deux espèces capables de tirer avantage des nouvelles ressources offertes par le lac. Enfin, au cours des 4 années suivantes, les captures diminuaient lentement et régulièrement et la composition spécifique se modifiait profondément. Ce schéma semble conforme à ce qui a été observé dans plusieurs grandes retenues en zone tropicale.

Pour répondre à cet objectif, le Comité de Distillation du GEC (Groupe d'Études Concertées sur l'analyse des fractions lourdes du pétrole, réunissant Compagnie Francaise de Raffinage (CFR, Société Nationale Elf Aquitaine (SNEA et Institut Français du Pétrole (IFP a mis au point un schéma de préparation spécial de ces distillats, faisant appel à des techniques de distillation continue, de type « isotherme» et « moléculaire ». Dans ce cadre, le Comité de Distillation du GEC a été amené à développer un nouvel appareillage de distillation x isotherme », permettant de réduire, sans craquage, tout pétrole brut jusqu'à une température maximale comprise entre 350 et 380 °C. On décrit dans cet article ce nouvel ensemble de distillation, ainsi que ses conditions opératoires de fonctionnement. On y donne aussi un aperçu de la précision de la méthode de distillation réalisable avec cet appareil, ainsi que de la qualité de fractionnement obtenu.Enfin, à l'aide de quelques exemples particuliers, on montre que le domaine d'application de l'appareil peut être étendu à des produits autres que des pétroles bruts. Analytical examinations of high-boiling-range petroleum distillates must be made with products prepared under extremely mild distillation conditions so as ta maintain intact all the chemical species initially present in the original crude oil.

Après une certaine stabilisation dans les années 80, l’arrivée sur le marché d’autres écrans (internet, écrans portables met à mal en France et aux Etats-Unis la périodisation installée. Alors qu’en France, le mode de financement du cinéma et la place cruciale de Canal Plus dans les recettes du cinéma conduisent à un raccourcissement de la séquence sans que les professionnels n’envisagent une disparition du modèle, aux Etats-Unis, le déclin du marché vidéo met à l’ordre du jour une abolition pure et simple du séquençage. Les compagnies indépendantes notamment expérimentent de façon croissante les sorties de films sur tous les écrans disponibles sous l’œil intéressé des majors, prêtes à adopter le modèle s’il s’avère pertinent.Stemming ab initio exclusively from the theatre box-office, revenues of films diversified when television and video became alternative ways of screening movies. Thus, a business model was established and stabilized in the 1980s along screening windows. The digital revolution broke this business model in France as well as in the United States. However, while in France, the film investment schemes and Canal Plus Group’s established position as a major source of finance led to the shortening of release windows but not to the disappearance of the release windows format, in the United States, the declining DVD sales and revenues forced the major studios to study new methods of distribution and new business models, based on day-and-date releases and on the gradual dissolution of the windows model.

    Full Text Available En France, à la différence de l’Angleterre et de l’Allemagne, l’industrie du chalutage à vapeur reste longtemps stationnaire. A Lorient, l’arrivée du chalutage à vapeur date de la fin du XIXe siècle. Comment analyser son développement, principale innovation halieutique, sinon comme un levier du développement portuaire et charbonnier? En effet, le chalutage nécessite des aménagements portuaires, la mise en place de liaisons ferroviaires de trains de marée, qui contribuent ainsi à créer un arrière-pays et à développer les importations de charbon. Grâce au chalutage, Lorient, comme La Rochelle et Saint-Malo, connaît un renouveau économique. Au lendemain de la Première Guerre mondiale, la France a un besoin urgent de trois ou quatre ports de pêche spécialisés. Lorient, présentant de nombreux atouts, bénéficie des mannes de l’Etat pour la construction d’un gigantesque complexe portuaire opérationnel en 1927: le port de pêche de Kéroman, incontestable réussite économique. Dès 1929, la flotte des chalutiers à vapeur est progressivement remplacée par des navires motorisés. A la veille de la Seconde Guerre mondiale, 68% des chalutiers fonctionnent au moteur Diesel. Fait remarquable, le modèle lorientais offre l’exemple original d’un développement d’une industrie du chalutage à vapeur, précisément parce que les gens de mer n’y ont joué aucun rôle primordial; ce sont les industriels du charbon, notamment Emile Marcesche, et les compagnies de chemin de fer qui assurent le développement et la montée en puissance de cette nouvelle industrie pour le port de Lorient.

    cycles de fatigue qui ont permis de valider et d'améliorer les principes. La première application visée fut le forage en mer profonde. L'étude d'un riser de forage grande profondeur, menée dans le cadre des campagnes de forage en Méditerranée profonde au début des années 80, a permis d'identifier que sa période propre de résonance longitudinale pouvait se rapprocher dangereusement de celle de la houle dans certaines conditions opérationnelles. Le remplacement des lignes périphériques haute pression (dites Kill and Choke lines, 105 MPa de pression de service par des lignes en matériaux composites est alors un moyen élégant d'améliorer ce comportement par une diminution substantielle de la masse, à la fois du composant structurel mais aussi des mousses syntactiques nécessaires pour maintenir la flottabilité du riser. Un essai en mer en vraie grandeur était mené en 1983 sur un riser de forage dans les conditions sévères de la mer du Nord, avec le concours de Total Compagnie Française des Pétroles. Mais les principaux débouchés potentiels identifiés des tubes composites haute performance dans l'industrie pétrolière marine sont les risers de Plates-formes à Lignes Tendues. Des avantages d'allègement très importants peuvent en être retirés en mer profonde, permettant des gains sur le système global capables de justifier le surcoût lié à l'emploi du composite. Deux importants programmes de qualification ont été menés sur ce thème en collaboration avec d'importantes compagnies pétrolières internationales : l'un a permis de démontrer que les tubes composites pouvaient être dimensionnés avec précision et tenir l'ensemble des spécifications requises (105 MPa à l'éclatement pour un diamètre nominal de 0,23 m, 4 500 kN à rupture avec température interne de 110°C, avec notamment un comportement en fatigue excellent ; l'autre était dédié à la tolérance aux défauts et aux méthodes de contrôle non destructifs applicables

    Full Text Available Le traitement des eaux de raffinerie par le procédé des Iits bactériens constitue une solution intéressante. Néanmoins, il subsiste actuellement des problèmes pratiques d'exploitation, en particulier la tendance au colmatage des lits bactériens existants qui résulte d'un encrassement incontrôlé des garnissages en vrac. Après étude, il est confirmé que les hydrocarbures, les matières en suspension contenus dans l'effluent et une mauvaise évacuation de la biomasse sont à l'origine du problème. L'examen des possibilités de lutte contre ce phénomène permet de distinguer des mesures curatives et des mesure préventives. Les mesures curatives qui consistent à régénérer le garnissage par augmentation de la charge hydraulique, nettoyage chimique, ou nettoyage manuel ne donnent pas entière satisfaction. Parmi tes mesures préventives, l'une des méthodes consiset à réduire la charge polluante de l'effluent : les eaux usées phénolées sont dessalées, les eaux de désulfuration du gas oil (DGO et fluid cracking catalytic (FCC sont strippées, les soudes sont réinjectées dans le brut, les huiles récupérées juste en aval de leur rejet, les traitements primaires sont optimisés, notamment par installation de racleurs et de tambours oléophiles sur les séparateurs API et par un meilleur choix de floculants. Néanmoins, l'expérience montre que cette méthode ne permet que de retarder l'échéance du colmatage. Le meilleur moyen de lutte réside dans le choix du matériau de garnissage, ainsi que le montrent les essais pilotes comparatifs réalisés par l'Institut National de Recherche Chimique Appliquée (lRCHA et Compagnie Française de Raffinage (CFR. Ces essais, qui ont portés sur l'évolution de la densité du garnissage, les performances épuratoires et la qualité des boues montrent que le Cloisonyle, garnissage tubulaire, est probablement le matériau le mieux adapté.

    Full Text Available Durant quatre années l'Azienda Generale Italiana Petroli (AGIP, la Société Nationale Elf Aquitaine, l'Institut Français du Pétrole (IFP et Total Compagnie Française des Pétroles ont joint leurs efforts pour développer un outil de géologie structurale et un programme de rétro-déformation. Le but était d'améliorer le pointé des sections sismiques en validant l'interprétation faite par des tests de cohérence géométrique. Une section qui peut être rétro-déformée en suivant le principe de conservation de la matière est dite équilibrée. Ce projet de recherche a abouti à la réalisation de deux logiciels LOCACE et BALISS. LOCACE (LOgiciel de Construction Assistée de Coupes Equilibrées travaille à partir d'une section géologique. BALISS (BALanced Interpretation of Seismic Sections permet d'appliquer à l'image sismique profondeur les principes de l'équilibrage. Cet article rappelle les fondements de cette méthode, les différents types de déformation - rigide, couche à couche, cisaillement simple - leur mise en oeuvre dans LOCACE/BALISS et la philosophie de l'utilisation de ces logiciels. The need to use concepts of structural geology for seismic interpretation is something that is often difficult to apply because of the complexity of the zones investigated and especially because of the lack of interaction among specialists in the different areas of exploration. Likewise, quantitative geology is fairly recent, and computerized tools for structural geology are still rare although there is a multitude of them in geophysics. The existence of graphic workstations and computerized tools favoring the effective interactivity of software packages now makes it possible to integrate this implementation. The two French oil companies, Total Compagnie Française des Pétroles and Elf Aquitaine, together with Institut Français du Pétrole (IFP have joined their efforts since 1987 to develop a tool for testing the geologic and

The cross arms of the nave were covered by saddle tile roofs, as was the rule in cross-in-square churches of the byzantine periphery. The east corner bays where roofed at a lower level with lean-to roofs with north and south direction respectively. The west corner bays on the other hand, were so much thinner that it was rather impossible to have independent roofing. In that case, the roofs of the lateral compartments of the esonarthex gave externally the impression of west corner bays. This peculiar arrangement, emphasizing the unification between the nave and the esonathex, is very rarely attested among the known examples of cross-in-square churches with shorter west arm, relating the church at the Sofronis Gorge with a small group of relevant monuments (Fraggavilla, Klesa-Porti.            The form of the dome of the church in question must not be confused with the similarly shaped raised central bays in transverse barrel vaults. Thought there are a few similarities with a small number of byzantine and post byzantine domes, it seems that the dome of Hagios Nikolaos at Sofronis Gorge is unique in the ecclesiastical architecture of Byzantium, most likely the result of an improvisation of a local group of masons.            Hagios Nikolaos was initially decorated with frescoes, fragmentarily preserved. Three different phases can be distinguished due to stylistic and iconographic criteria. The first one is very difficult to be studied because of its poor condition of presentation. The second one can be dated to the late thirteenth century, while the last one might be placed in the fifteenth century.            It is difficult to conclude to an exact dating for the church of Hagios Nikolaos, because of the lack of documentary and epigraphic evidence. Based on its morphological and typological features a rather broad dating

We have traces and trails of analysis applied to the different types of disaster, but still we haven’t a categorical and general reflection over the disaster as urban fact. Disaster studies well knows that these events have common features, which allow to label these as elements of a single class, and to be studied and faced more effectively than what a single field could done. The goal of this volume is to sustain a reflexive boost, which leads to a deeper specialisation of urban studies in relation to face a disaster, specially in the regeneration of an affected city. Abstract en italiano: Tra i differenti campi degli studi urbani, vi è un settore ancora molto poco approfondito: la rigenerazione dopo un disastro. Negli anni si sono senza dubbio prodotte tracce e  sentieri analitici applicati ai diversi tipi di disastro, ma tuttora soffriamo la mancanza di una riflessione generale e categoriale sul disastro come fatto urbano. I saperi che si occupano di disastri hanno da tempo superato gli approcci settoriali, consci dei molti comuni aspetti tra le diverse manifestazioni di questo fenomeno, che suggeriscono di affrontarlo come un campo unitario. L’obiettivo di questo volume è di sostenere un incremento di riflessione, che porti ad una più profonda specializzazione, degli studi urbani in relazione al disastro, in particolare nella rigenerazione di una città colpita.

    Full Text Available OBJECTIVE: To assess school teachers' level of knowledge on prevention of viral hepatitis (VH. MATERIAL AND METHODS: A cross-sectional study was conducted in three cities of Brazil, from August to November of 1999. The sample was composed of 360 subjects: 334 women and 26 men, 81 (22.5% from Belém, 123 (34.2% from Natal and 156 (43.3% from Rio de Janeiro. Cultural differences in knowledge were identified using a questionnaire to classify, according to semantic content, categories of transmission and preventive practices. Responses were scored as right or wrong. Data were tabulated and analyzed using EPIINFO 6.04 and open answers were classified according to semantic content. Comparison of the answer frequencies between cities was done through the chi-square test. RESULTS: Transmission category (TC (n=837 answers and prevention category (PC (n=771 answers "food-and waterborne" transmission items were the most frequently mentioned (40%. For TC, "food-and waterborne" answers were followed by "bloodborne" (16%, "inadequate knowledge" (9%, "possible causes of hepatic disease" (9%, and "sexual transmission" (7% answers. For PC items, "food-and waterborne" answers were followed by "general aspects of prevention" (13%, "immunization" (9%, "quality of health services" (8% and "sexual prevention" (5% items. "Right" scores for transmission mechanisms and prevention practices varied from zero to 80%. CONCLUSIONS: Study findings suggest that investments should be made to disseminate appropriate knowledge on VH prevention, mainly addressing sexual transmission and intravenous drug use.OBJETIVO: Evaluar los conocimientos y prácticas de profesores escolares en la prevención de hepatitis viral.

    responsibilities; and (4) digital health interventions should be used to enhance, not replace, face-to-face support. This study is the first, to our knowledge, to qualitatively explore the experiences and attitudes of mental health care staff toward individuals with severe mental health problems using the Internet, mobile phones, and digital health interventions to self-manage their mental health. Understanding the positive and negative experiences and views shared by staff toward both current and potential digital health intervention use has enabled the identification of several considerations for implementation. Additionally, the findings suggest mental health care staff need clear guidance and training in relation to their responsibilities in recommending reputable and secure websites, forums, and digital health interventions and in how to manage professional boundaries on the Internet. Overall, the study highlights that digital health interventions could be well received by staff working in mental health services but importantly, such management options must be presented to frontline staff as an avenue to enhance care and extend choice, rather than as a method to reduce costs. ©Natalie Berry, Sandra Bucci, Fiona Lobban.

    Full Text Available L’abandon unilatéral du système de protection tarifaire en 1986 et la signature, en 1992, de l’Accord de libre-échange nord-américain ont profondément marqué l’économie mexicaine. Orientée vers l’exportation, tournée vers les États-Unis et le marché nord-américain, celle-ci s’est modernisée, au prix toutefois d’importantes restructurations. Le cas du secteur automobile est à cet égard exemplaire. L’article qui suit analyse les transformations dans ce secteur dans le District fédéral. L’auteure utilise les données des recensements et s’appuie sur les résultats d’une enquête menée auprès des entreprises. Il en ressort que, malgré certaines difficultés, les grandes et moyennes entreprises sont en condition de fournir directement les usines de montage lorsqu’elles sont en mesure de s’adapter et répondre à leurs exigences. Le texte met en évidence le cas de la micro-entreprise TIER 1 qui travaille pour Volkswagen. Cette entreprise a démontré sa capacité d’apprentissage technologique sans avoir reçu l’appui de cette compagnie.Starting in 1986 with the unilateral withdrawal from the protective tariff system, and reinforced in 1994 when the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA came into force, the policy of reorienting the Mexican economy toward the outside world was accelerated, especially towards the US and North America. The automotive industry in particular has gone through significant transformations, both in terms of modernization and relocation. This paper discusses the changes that have been taking place in the automotive industry established in Mexico City based on existing statistic data from the Census and evidence collected from a survey of industry companies. This article makes the argument that in spite of many difficulties, not only large or medium-sized companies can be direct suppliers of automobile assembly plants, given that this is dependent upon the ability to respect

    Full Text Available Abstract – IT La complessa vicenda del “baratto”, ideata e attuata da Eugenio Barba e l’Odin Teatret a partire dal 1973-74, è una delle più affascinanti imprese appartenenti alla storia del Nuovo Teatro del Novecento. Il saggio ricostruisce il più oggettivamente possibile la permanenza dell’Odin Teatret in Sardegna, tra il 1974 e il 1975, durante la quale le tante comunità sarde risposero spontaneamente alla proposta dell’Odin, "barattando" il proprio patrimonio di canti, balli e pratiche tradizionali. Nato nella città di Cagliari, l’autore ha potuto spesso cogliere nelle testimonianze di intellettuali e artisti isolani l’eco di quella avventura; una traccia viva, quando non proprio un modello mitico, per più di una generazione di operatori culturali tuttora attivi in Sardegna. Da qui il desiderio di ricucire il filo della memoria, nell’idea di restituire quanto più possibile anche una sottile zona del rimosso, osservando con attenzione le date di questa vicenda e alcune testimonianze ad esse correlate. In particolare, secondo l’autore, la così tanto celebrata fase avvenuta a Carpignano Salentino da maggio a ottobre del 1974, a cui si attribuisce convenzionalmente, da un punto di vista storico, la nascita del baratto, in realtà ha teso a oscurare un precedente assai rilevante, legato all’incursione in terra sarda di Barba e compagni, tra Campidano e Barbagia, avvenuta nel mese di gennaio dello stesso anno. Abstract – EN The complex history of the 'baratto', which was conceived and performed by Eugenio Barba and the Odin Teatret from 1973-74, is one of the most challenging and fascinating projects in the history of XX century theatre. The purpose of the present essay is to retrace, as objectively as possible, Odin's permanence in Sardinia between 1974 and 1975, a period during which many local communities gave a positive feedback to Barba's project by 'bartering' traditional songs, dance and rituals. Born in

    Full text of publication follows: The French cohort of uranium miners aims at evaluating the mortality risk of miners exposed to low levels of radon and its decay products and to other occupational hazards. Its primary aim is the quantification of the relationship between cumulated radon exposure and the risk of lung cancer death. However this study also allows to analyse risks for causes of death other than lung cancer. We present a new analysis of the mortality based on an extended follow-up of the cohort to end of 1999. Materials and methods: The French cohort of uranium miners has been followed by the Institut de Radioprotection et de Surete Nucleaire (I.R.S.N.) since the 1980's, in collaboration with the Occupational Medical Service of Compagnie Generale des Matieres Nucleaires (Cogema). The cohort was recently enlarged and the follow-up extended up to 1999. It includes men employed as miners for at least 1 year since 1946 at the Commissariat a l Energie Atomique (Cea) or at the Cogema. Individual vital status was ascertained through a national database and causes of death were determined according to death certificates. For each miner, yearly radon exposures was reconstructed and expressed in working level month (W.L.M.). Risk of death was estimated relatively to external reference rates from the general French male population. The classical method of standardized mortality ratios (S.M.R.s) was used to adjust for age and calendar year. Exposure-risk relationships have been estimated by Poisson regression, using a linear excess relative risk (E.R.R.) model with a lag time of 5 years. Results: The cohort comprises 5,098 miners. The mean duration of follow -up is 30.1 years (total of 153,272 person-years). The number of radon exposed miners is 4,134 with an average cumulative radon exposure of 36.5 W.L.M.. Miners lost to follow-up represent 1.4% of the cohort. A total of 1,471 deaths before age 85 is observed up to 1999. The analysis shows no excess for all

    Full Text Available In this paper I have analysed the characteristics of what I define the “gambling subculture”, which is detectable in certain gaming environments and in subgroups of particularly “rabid” players. Within these subcultures there have been identified rules and sanctions, values, consolidate behaviours, characterization of relationships and interactions, and the conclusion is that what is built within the gambling environment is a separate universe, an “outer reality”, in which the values of the world “outside” change. It was also possible to conclude that, to join the gambling world for a gambler – learning its rules, sharing its values, developing relations inside it – represents a stimulus for gambling habits, as it allows to consider as “normal” their behaviour thanks to positive feedback from their groups of fellow players, and to the neutralization of possible negative feedback from “non-players”.Nel presente contributo vengono analizzate le caratteristiche di quella che ho definito “subcultura dell'azzardo”, rilevabile in determinati ambienti ludici e in sotto-gruppi di giocatori particolarmente “accaniti”. Di queste forme di subcultura sono state individuate norme e sanzioni, valori, comportamenti consolidati, caratterizzazione delle relazioni e delle interazioni, giungendo alla conclusione che quello che viene costruito negli spazi di gioco rappresenta un universo separato, un “extraluogo”, nel quale vengono scritte nuove regole e nel quale cambiano i valori rispetto al mondo “esterno”. È stato possibile inoltre concludere che l'adesione all'“universo gioco” – l'interiorizzazione delle sue norme, la condivisione dei suoi valori, lo sviluppo di relazioni al suo interno – rappresenta un fattore di mantenimento della condotta ludica, poiché permette di considerare “normale” il proprio comportamento grazie ai rinforzi positivi che giungono dal gruppo dei compagni-giocatori e alla

    Full Text Available Il metodo, che si rifà alle teorie pedagogiche di Maria Montessori (1870-1952, è un esempio di lezione “aperta” fondato su pratiche che attivano la sfera emozionale, sensoriale e relazionale oltre a quella logico-razionale della mente. Nel processo di apprendimento di conoscenze acquisite non solo attraverso l’ascolto delle parole dell’insegnante, ma anche attraverso esperienze scelte autonomamente e consapevolmente da soli e in gruppo, l’ambiente delle stazioni didattiche offre tutto il materiale di sviluppo cognitivo in maniera che sia liberamente fruibile dal discente per favorirne la socializzazione e l’autonomia (secondo il motto di Maria Montessori ‘Aiutami a fare da solo’. A lezione esse non solo offrono varietà, comunicazione e divertimento ma, e in ciò è il loro massimo pregio, differenziazione interna al gruppo degli studenti, che possono, senza alcuna pressione da parte dei compagni, lavorare al proprio ritmo e livello scegliendogli esercizi secondo le preferenze individuali lungo un percorso aperto a canali diversi di apprendimento e orientato ad un vivace interscambio con gli altri.Il nostro contributo fa riferimento a tre esempi di stazioni didattiche legate alle feste che più richiamano l’attenzione degli studenti stranieri sul nostro paese: il Natale e il Carnevale. Tali tematiche mostrano come il modello della stazioni didattiche riesca a rapportarsi al vissuto degli studenti motivandoli al raffronto interculturale.

En Afrique subsaharienne, la principale puce retrouvée chez les animaux de compagnie et chez certains animaux d’élevage (ovins, caprins et bovins appartient à la sous-espèce C. f. strongylus. Quelques paramètres bio-écologiques de C. f. strongylus ont été étudiés dans différentes conditions d’élevage. Les résultats ont été comparés à ceux de C. f. felis actuellement disponibles. À 75% ± 5 d’humidité relative, le cycle de développement de C. f. strongylus dure 20-21 jours à 27 °C et de 16 à 17 jours à 29 °C. Ainsi, la sousespèce africaine de la puce du chat (C. f. strongylus se développe moins vite que C. f. felis à températures identiques. Cette différence pourrait s’expliquer par l’influence du climat de leurs aires de distribution respectives sur leur cycle de développement. À 75% ± 5 d’humidité relative, les adultes de C. f. strongylus ne peuvent survivre plus de 14 jours dans l’environnement à des températures comprises entre 27 et 29 °C, lorsqu’elles n’ont jamais pris de repas sanguin. Dans ces mêmes conditions, la durée de survie n’excède pas 16 jours à 19 °C. Mais lorsque C. f. strongylus a pris un premier repas de sang, elle a une durée de vie beaucoup plus courte lorsqu’elle est hors de son hôte. En effet, aucun individu n’est retrouvé vivant trois jours passé hors de la fourrure de son hôte à 29 °C, cinq jours à 27 °C et huit jours à 19 °C. Il en est de même pour C. f. felis.

Cet article vise à rendre compte d’une enquête menée au sein d’un centre de maintenance d’une compagnie aérienne. Au-delà de l’observation des différentes formes que prend le travail dans l’urgence, ce sont les arrangements différenciés et marqués socialement entre les mécaniciens, d’un côté, et les managers de proximité, de l’autre, que nous analysons. Cela nous a conduit à repérer divers mécanismes de défense utilisés par les salariés ainsi qu’à discuter l’intérêt et les limites d’un dispositif original mis en place par la direction : un « bureau des pleurs managérial ».Working under pressure has become a categorical imperative for many employees, especially since it is generally coupled with the contradictory requirement that a quick job be done well. The question then becomes how time pressure is legitimised; to what extent employees internalise these managerial models; and whether their perceptions change depending on their hierarchical status. The article presents results from a research study carried out in an airline company’s maintenance centre. In addition to its analysis of the different forms of working under pressure, it also looks at how mechanics and their immediate managers adapt to this kind of regime, and whether any such differentiated arrangements vary along social lines. What appears are a number of defence mechanisms developed by employees. The discussion also covers the strengths and weaknesses of an unusual scheme set up by one company, involving a

    Full Text Available Pays polychrome, de pierres blanches ou bleues et de briques roses, jaunes ou noires, la Flandre manie depuis le Moyen Âge les jeux colorés de matériaux. Sa capitale wallonne, Lille, est la ville méridionale des Pays‑Bas catholiques où s’acclimatent les plantes de la compagnie des Indes néerlandaises et où se déroulent les « joyeuses entrées » des comtes, ducs de Bourgogne, archiducs et autres rois d’Espagne. Cette tradition de luxuriance se traduit à l’âge d'or bourguignon par une efflorescence de couleurs sur les édifices qui durera jusqu’à la prise de Lille par Louis XIV en 1667. Les portes « espagnoles » affichent leurs briques émaillées de couleur. L’hospice Comtesse placarde son retable de pierres peintes sur sa façade d’entrée. La Vieille Bourse colore ses façades au modèle d’un cabinet d’ébénisterie avec ses incrustations de pierres nacrées et de brique luisantes comme les écailles de tortue. Le style franco‑lillois transmettra ce goût pour la couleur à travers la reconstitution du centre ville au xviie siècle, ce dont témoigne le plan-relief de 1743. Les restaurations depuis une dizaine d’années retrouvent cette tradition de joie urbaine dans les autres « grand-places » des villes du Nord.A polychromatic land of white and blue stone and pink, yellow and black brick, Flanders has sought colour combinations in building materials since the Middle Ages. Its French-speaking capital, Lille, was the city in the south of the Catholic Netherlands where plants imported by the Dutch East Indies Company acclimatized and where the ‘Joyous Entry’ celebrations of the counts, Dukes of Burgundy, archdukes and kings of Spain took place. During the golden age of Burgundy, this tradition of luxuriance was reflected in the increasing use of colours on buildings, a trend that would endure until the siege of Lille by Louis XIV in 1667.

    Full Text Available Il contributo in oggetto si propone di approfondire i rapporti tra le corporazioni e i gruppi industriali italiani da un’ottica particolare, quella dell’associazionismo che si concretizza con l’American Chamber of Commerce in Italy, instituita nel 1915 per agevolare le relazioni commerciali tra Italia e Stati Uniti. La grave crisi economica del 1930 e del 1931 e, poco dopo, le gravissime restrizioni portate agli scambi con l’estero dal programma autarchico del Governo fascista, influirono notevolmente sullo sviluppo della Camera. L’autorità dell’istituzione venne a diminuire, i rapporti con gli Stati Uniti si fecero più rari e il numero dei soci diminuì notevolmente. Alle corporazioni furono affidate le autorizzazioni sui nuovi impianti, la costituzione delle compagnie per la valorizzazione dell’Africa orientale italiana, il controllo sulle iniziative economiche nelle colonie, la collaborazione col fisco nella determinazione e nell’applicazione dei tributi ed infine il controllo sul commercio estero e sulle valute. Di conseguenza, la funzione che lo Stato avrebbe dovuto esercitare servendosi delle corporazioni finì col ricadere nelle mani dei grandi industriali, che le dominavano attraverso i loro rappresentanti. Da un lato, quindi, vi erano le corporazioni, che garantivano piena libertà ai gruppi industriali, avallandone le scelte; dall’altro lato, invece, vi erano le autorità governative che riconoscevano i limiti di competenza e d’intervento di quelle istituzioni e la necessità di una migliore definizione degli obiettivi. This contribution aims to examine the relationship between corporations and the Italian industrial groups from a particular perspective, which is that of associations through the American Chamber of Commerce in Italy, established in 1915 to facilitate the commercial relations between Italy and the United States. The economic crisis of 1930 and 1931 and, shortly after, the very serious restrictions

Ces zones englobent celles où une exploitation a déjà été entamée (au large de l’île Sakhaline, dans le Timan Péchora du nord et celles en attente d’une implication à venir, comme les mers de Barents et de Péchora, la Sibérie orientale, la péninsule de Yamal, la mer de Kara et le Kamchatka. Les niveaux de production offshore vont probablement être très importants pour la Russie à moyen et long terme, particulièrement du fait que la plupart (sinon la totalité de la production sera exportée et, ce faisant, ouvrira des portes vers de nouveaux marchés. De cette manière, la production offshore introduira une composante nouvelle et très significative à la stratégie d’exportation de la Russie. Toutefois, une implication active des ressources arctiques russes dans le processus global de fourniture d’énergie exige une analyse détaillée et une compréhension claire du potentiel du marché du gaz et de l’huile russes (volumes demandés, calendrier d’exécution, voies de transports; elle exige aussi une attention soutenue de la part du gouvernement sur les points les plus importants qui devront être mis en place, tels que des normes et directives nationales pour l’exploitation des ressources arctiques, une législation stable, transparente et sans surprise à titre de condition préalable nécessaire à des investissements massifs dans l’exploration et la production et, notamment, une implication active de compagnies étrangères dans l’exploitation des ressources arctiques qui pourrait apporter en même temps que les investissements une compétence et une expérience indispensables, une technologie disponible et des principes d’Hygiène, Sécurité et Environnement (HSE.

    'unification des deux ex-Yemen, a incité de nombreuses compagnies pétrolières à se lancer dans la course à l'exploration, à exécuter des études sismiques approfondies et à entreprendre des campagnes de forage intensives en de nombreux points du pays. Il en a résulté un accroissement rapide du nombre des nouvelles données géologiques concernant le sous-sol et une perception de plus en plus claire de la distribution, de l'orientation et du moment de formation des principaux bassins. Il convient de noter, toutefois, qu'aucune synthèse de l'ensemble des résultats n'a encore été entreprise, chaque compagnie ne s'intéressant qu'à sa concession et aux zones avoisinantes. Des études récentes portant sur l'analyse, la comparaison et la synthèse de la masse des nouvelles données stratigraphiques disponibles, dans le cadre de la standardisation de la nomenclature lithostratigraphique utilisée au Yemen et de sa mise en conformité avec les normes et règles internationales ont demandé obligatoirement la mise en place d'un cadre structurel général permettant une corrélation stratigraphique entre les bassins et à l'intérieur de ces derniers. L'objet du présent article est donc de présenter la nouvelle carte des bassins sédimentaires et des redressements qui les séparent. La formation des principaux bassins mésozoïques résulte de l'extension et de l'effondrement du système jurassique récent qui ont entraîné, essentiellement, la réjuvénation de l'ancienne faille de Najd orientée nord-ouest/sud-est suivie de l'apparition d'un rejet horizontal. Les bassins du Tertiaire sont nés de la séparation de l'Arabie et de l'Afrique au Néogène le long des axes du golfe d'Aden et de la mer Rouge. Les principaux redressements remontent à la même époque, le plus ancien et le plus persistant étant la chaîne de l'Hadhramaout. Toute l'activité tectonique est liée à la fragmentation et à l'éclatement du Gondwanan, depuis la fermeture initiale du pal

    million as at December 31, 2006. POWEO achieved during the last year new steps in its evolution towards the model of integrated energy operator. The partnership with Verbund led the company to revise upwards its industrial ambitions. Within the framework of the deployment plan of five power stations by 2012, the construction of the combined cycle gas turbine (CCGT) power plant of Pont-sur-Sambre began in December 2006. This 233 million euro investment will be financed at 78% by Verbund through a project financing, without recourse on POWEO SA. The LNG terminal project for which POWEO was selected by the Port Le Havre Authority, in partnership with the CIM, Compagnie Industrielle et Maritime, will allow the group to obtain an essential industrial infrastructure and to optimize its strategy in gas sourcing in order to face the consumption of its power plants and end customers. The first projects in wind power (Boulay and St Aubin) announced in November 2006 should be accompanied in 2007 by larger initiatives, POWEO intending to act as a consolidator in the renewable energies sector. Finally the capacity swap agreement signed with EDF in December 2006 allows POWEO to have access over the 2007-2021 period to full-base electricity generated by EDF's nuclear power plants. All these developments and 2006 financial results allow POWEO to consider with confidence and enthusiasm the next stages of its growth. With regard to 2007, POWEO intends to acquire 100,000 new sites customers, the residential sector bringing the main contribution to this growth given its liberalization from July 1. In this context, POWEO has set as an objective for the current year a consolidated revenue of 350 million euro, rising more than 40% compared to 2006. This year of transition should be also characterized by an increase of operating costs notably due to the industrial projects deployment phase and significant but essential investments in marketing.

Cette periode de demarrage et d'organisation, traitee dans la deuxieme partie de la these, se termine en 1947-48, au moment ou l'OER et les cooperatives raffermissent leur maitrise du systeme cooperatif d'electrification rurale. Les annees 1948 a 1955 (troisieme partie de these) correspondent a une periode de croissance pour le mouvement cooperatif. Cette partie scrute ainsi le developpement des cooperatives, les vastes chantiers de construction et l'injection de millions de dollars dans l'electrification rurale. Cette troisieme partie prend egalement acte des premiers signes que quelque chose ne va pas si bien dans le monde cooperatif. Nous y verrons egalement les ruraux a l'oeuvre: comme membres, d'abord, mais aussi en tant que benevoles, puis a l'emploi des cooperatives. La quatrieme et derniere partie, les annees 1956 a 1964, aborde les changements majeurs qui ont cours dans l'univers cooperatif; il s'agit d'une ere nouvelle et difficile pour le mouvement cooperatif, dont les reseaux paraissent inadaptes aux changements de profil de la consommation d'electricite des usagers. L'OER sent alors le besoin de raffermir son controle des cooperatives, car il pressent les problemes et les defis auxquels elles auront a faire face. Notre etude se termine par l'acquisition des cooperatives par Hydro-Quebec, en 1963-64. Fondee sur des sources riches et variees, notre demarche propose un eclairage inedit sur une dimension importante de l'histoire de l'electricite au Quebec. Elle permet, ce faisant, de saisir les rouages et l'action de l'Etat sous un angle particulier, avant sa profonde transformation amorcee au cours des annees 1960. De meme, elle apporte quelques cles nouvelles pour une meilleure comprehension de la dynamique des milieux ruraux de cette periode.

    Full Text Available Lo studio intende illustrare (quando possibile anche attraverso le testimonianze scritte degli artisti le vicende dei pittori veronesi che, nel secolo XIX, cercano e in molti casi trovano fortuna a Milano, il centro artistico più aggiornato e vivace di tutto il Nord Italia, rinomato soprattutto per la sua Accademia e le frequentatissime esposizioni. Questa “migrazione” si verifica perché Verona, durante il periodo della dominazione asburgica (1815 – 1866, diviene il perno del sistema militare del regno Lombardo-Veneto e, conseguentemente, il suo sviluppo è subordinato alle necessità delle numerose compagnie militari che stazionano o transitano sul suo territorio. Si incrementano quindi l’edilizia militare, i mezzi di comunicazione per collegamenti di lunga distanza, ma non lo sviluppo urbanistico della città e la nascita di piccole industrie e commerci che possano favorire la popolazione civile. In questa situazione anche il mercato dell’arte languisce, sia per la carenza di committenti pubblici e privati, sia per le poche occasioni di promozione che si organizzano in questi difficili anni. A ciò si aggiunga che anche l’Accademia cittadina vive un momento di stagnazione, dovuta in parte agli obsoleti metodi di insegnamento e in parte alla mancanza di fondi, che causano un tale abbassamento di qualità nell’insegnamento per cui gli artisti qui formati si rivelano impreparati a competere con i colleghi provenienti da altre realtà del paese. Dopo L’Unità d’Italia e, soprattutto, dopo la riforma dell’Accademia veronese (1873, i rapporti tra Verona e Milano, invece, si fanno più complessi: non sono più solamente i pittori veronesi a recarsi nel capoluogo lombardo per studiare e per esporre, ma anche gli autori lombardi non disdegnano le manifestazioni della città veneta e addirittura ambiscono a ottenere e di fatto, spesso, ottengono, la direzione dell’Accademia scaligera.

    Full Text Available Night Mail est un documentaire de court-métrage sur le travail du tri postal dans les transports ferroviaires de nuit, produit par le service cinéma du GPO (General Post Office, Ministère des Postes du Royaume-Uni, en 1936. C’est d’abord, pour l’organisme d’État qui le produit, un film sur la Poste et les postiers qu’ils soient sur le terrain, à bord du train, ou dans les bureaux. Le film est nécessairement conduit à traiter aussi le travail de la compagnie de chemin de fer qui achemine le courrier, et donc celui des cheminots, de tous les cheminots. Ceux qui sont à la manipulation des machines, sur la voie, dans les gares traversées au long du trajet, et ceux des bureaux qui assurent les liaisons par téléphone, morse, et l’ensemble des télécommunications de l’époque en plein développement (1936. Le film devient ainsi une réflexion sur l’institution, les institutions, leur organisation, et leur collaboration sans laquelle il n’y a pas de travail possible. L’objectif central de cet article est d’offrir à ceux des sociologues qui s’intéressent à la sociologie filmique, des éléments pour comprendre les possibilités conceptuelles de l’écriture filmique.Night Mail, a short documentary about mail sorting on night trains, was produced by the UK General Post Office’s cinema department back in 1936. The first thing that can be said about this state-produced film is that it talks about the post office but also its employees, with some doing their pick-up rounds and others working on the train or in an office. It also necessarily highlights the work done by the rail company carrying the mail, focusing on different kinds of rail workers including machine operators, line maintenance crews or staff from the stations that the train passes through during the movie. On top of this, there are also railway office employees responsible for telephone connections, telegraph messages and all kinds of

    Full Text Available L'institut Français du Pétrole (IFP ayant acquis une grande expérience dans le domaine des catalyseurs, notamment d'hydrogénation, le Département Evaluation a effectué à diverses reprises des études qui en évaluent les marchés potentiels. L'analyse qui suit a été réalisée en vue de déterminer les débouchés possibles des catalyseurs utilisés dans l'hydrogénation des corps gras; elle couvre l'industrie alimentaire, l'hydrogénation des acides gras d'origine animale ou végétale, la production d'alcools gras et d'amines grasses. Ce marché dépasse 60 millions de dollars/an et correspond à près de 11 000 t/an de catalyseurs utilisés. Ces valeurs tiennent compte des consommations captives de catalyseurs produits par les compagnies utilisatrices. Ce chiffre d'affaires est du même ordre que celui des catalyseurs d'hydrogénation utilisés dans la synthèse des grands intermédiaires pétrochimiques. Plus de 64 % des applications concernent l'industrie alimentaire : production de margarine et shortening, hydrogénation d'huiles de salade et de friture aux États-Unis. Alors que la consommation de catalyseurs utilisés en lipochimie est très fortement concentrée dans les principales régions industrialisées : États-Unis, Europe occidentale et Japon, celle de I'lindustrie alimentaire est beaucoup plus dispersée : les 3 régions précitées représentent moins de 64 % de la consommation mondiale. Les débouchés estimés représentent des chiffres d'affaires annuels de 41×10·6 dollars pour l'industrie alimentaire, 8,3×10·6 dollars pour la production d'acide gras, 11×10·6 dollars pour la production d'alcools gras et 1,3×10·6 dollars pour la production d'amines grasses.

    Full Text Available La production d'eau dans les puits de pétrole ou de gaz est généralement responsable à la fois d'une diminution rapide de la productivité et d'un accroissement des coûts opératoires lié à la nécessité de transporter et de traiter de grandes quantités d'eau. Des problèmes induits tels que production de sable ou de fines, corrosion ou dépôts sont souvent rencontrés. Il en résulte une fermeture prématurée de ces puits du fait d'une production devenue non économique. Pour faire face à ces problèmes et allonger la durée de vie des puits, quelques compagnies ont tenté d'injecter des ciments, des résines ou des gels forts, organiques ou inorganiques, dans les intervalles producteurs d'eau. Ces barrières imperméables, qui nécessitent une isolation de zone au cours de leur mise en place, ont pour but d'empêcher tout écoulement de fluides. Ces traitements présentent cependant des risques importants notamment lorsque les niveaux producteurs d'huile ou d'eau ne peuvent pas être facilement distingués ou lorsque la complétion du puits ne permet pas une isolation de zone au cours du traitement. Pour surmonter ces difficultés, des études ont été conduites à partir de 1984 dans les laboratoires de l'Institut Français du Pétrole (lFP afin de développer des systèmes susceptibles de réduire sélectivement la production d'eau sans affecter de manière significative l'écoulement des hydrocarbures. Ces systèmes sont constitués de polymères de haut poids moléculaire, solubles dans l'eau, utilisés soit seuls, soit sous forme de gels faibles obtenus en présence de certains agents réticulants. Plusieurs procédés ont été développés, chacun d'eux étant adapté à des conditions de réservoir spécifiques, en particulier température de fond et salinité. Tous ces procédés présentent l'avantage de réduire sélectivement la perméabilité à l'eau tout en maintenant, voire en améliorant, la production d

    son of the founder of the Astronomische Nachrichten, Richard Schumacher, served for some years as an assistant at the Chilean National Observatory, and had married Marie Bulling, a girl of German descent. From her "meagre diary entries" of that time (published in Valparaiso in 2004), the author suspects a "convenience marriage''. Nevertheless, unreliable sources can provide a false picture: the interviewed custodian notes that the wife of the last official observatory director, Hans Oswald Rosenberg, was "Verena Borchardt, a Jewess from St. Petersburg'' (p. 583). This is more than incorrect. The family lived for some years in Moscow (not St. Petersburg), because her father was a representative of various companies, especially his grand-father's Königsberger Thee-Compagnie. In 1880, his daughter Helene was born there - who later married the Kiel astronomer Wirtz. In 1882, the Borchardt family moved to Berlin, where the father became a banker, and where Verena was born. The family was "of reformed confession, of Jewish origin'' (Borchardt, Heymel, Schörder: Marbacher Katalog Nr. 29, 1978): she was "a Jewess'' in Nazi terminology only. On page 583 too, Wirtz' capricious political views are quoted: "The day when the French troops entered Strasbourg was the happiest one in my life'', for which Theiss' paper of 1999 is quoted, and it is stated "source not given''. Now, Theiss uses a study of Duerbeck and Seitter (1990), where the precise reference in the Kiel Acta is given. Another overlooked (although not very informative) source is the voluminous edition of the collected letters (München 1994-2002) of Rudolf Borchardt, the poetical brother of "Vera'' Rosenberg and "Lene'' Wirtz. Another series of peculiar statements refer to the Astronomische Nachrichten (p. 666): Neither did they publish, after 1945, "sometimes only Russian articles'', nor after 1983 "only articles in English'': some "German'' astrometric articles appeared after that year, which will presumably stand

    .2 euro million as at December 31, 2006. POWEO achieved during the last year new steps in its evolution towards the model of integrated energy operator. The partnership with Verbund led the company to revise upwards its industrial ambitions. Within the framework of the deployment plan of five power stations by 2012, the construction of the combined cycle gas turbine (CCGT) power plant of Pont-sur-Sambre began in December 2006. This 233 million euro investment will be financed at 78% by Verbund through a project financing, without recourse on POWEO SA. The LNG terminal project for which POWEO was selected by the Port Le Havre Authority, in partnership with the CIM, Compagnie Industrielle et Maritime, will allow the group to obtain an essential industrial infrastructure and to optimize its strategy in gas sourcing in order to face the consumption of its power plants and end customers. The first projects in wind power (Boulay and St Aubin) announced in November 2006 should be accompanied in 2007 by larger initiatives, POWEO intending to act as a consolidator in the renewable energies sector. Finally the capacity swap agreement signed with EDF in December 2006 allows POWEO to have access over the 2007-2021 period to full-base electricity generated by EDF's nuclear power plants. All these developments and 2006 financial results allow POWEO to consider with confidence and enthusiasm the next stages of its growth. With regard to 2007, POWEO intends to acquire 100,000 new sites customers, the residential sector bringing the main contribution to this growth given its liberalization from July 1. In this context, POWEO has set as an objective for the current year a consolidated revenue of 350 million euro, rising more than 40% compared to 2006. This year of transition should be also characterized by an increase of operating costs notably due to the industrial projects deployment phase and significant but essential investments in marketing.

As soon as the issue of payment based on consumption comes into the picture, then the trust the user has developed in the private foreign company is displaced towards the public authority.Objet – Cet article porte sur une expérience comportementale dans le secteur de l’eau.

  17. Water-gas dynamics and coastal land subsidence over Chioggia Mare field, northern Adriatic Sea

    A major development programme comprising 15 gas fields of the northern Adriatic Sea has recently been submitted to the Ministry of the Environment, VIA Committee for the assessment of the environmental impact, by ENI-Agip, the Italian national oil company. One of the largest reservoirs is Chioggia Mare, located about 10 km offshore of the Venetian littoral, with a burial depth of 1000-1400 m. The planned gas production from this field is expected to impact the shoreline stability with a potential threat to the city of Venice, 25 km northwest of the center of Chioggia Mare. To evaluate the risk of anthropogenic land subsidence due to gas withdrawal, a numerical model was developed that predicts the compaction of both the gas-bearing formations and the lateral/bottom aquifer (water drive) during a 13-year producing and a 12-year post-production period, and the transference of the deep compaction to the ground surface. To address the uncertainty of a few important hydromechanical parameters, several scenarios are simulated and the most pessimistic predictions obtained. The modeling results show that at most 1 cm of land subsidence over 25 years may be expected at the city of Chioggia, whereas Venice is not subject to settlement. If aquifer drawdown is mediated by water injection, land subsidence is arrested 5 km offshore, with the Chioggia littoral zone experiencing a rebound of 0.6-0.7 cm. Résumé.

    Full Text Available La diversité croissante des origines de bruts a conduit, en combustion, a prendre en considération dans les modèles la teneur en métaux en plus du carbone Conradson ou des asphaltènes au C7 dans les fuels lourds. De tels modèles ont été développés par Exxon (1979 et Shell (1981 notamment. Des travaux récents faits à l'Institut Français du Pétrole (IFP sur une chaudière de 2 MW ont montré l'influence de composés métalliques particuliers présents dans le fuel oil sous forme de sulfures imprégnant des particules de carbone poreux. Ces microparticules peuvent être générées lorsque l'on applique des conditions opératoires sévères à la viscoréduction de fuels résiduaires en présence d'hydrogène et d'un catalyseur approprié. Ces microparticules se sont révélées très actives en combustion et ont montré que la concentration du métal n'était pas le seul facteur à prendre en considération mais que la manière dont il était combiné pouvait être prépondérante. Pour étendre le domaine d'application des modèles, d'autres paramètres comme les conditions de fonctionnement de la chaudière et l'atomisation du fuel ont été pris en compte en plus des paramètres d'influence propres au fuel (travaux du Laboratoire Énergie du MIT publications 1986. En ce qui concerne la prédiction d'émissions particulaires une méthode complémentaire aux tests de résidu de Conradson et d'insolubilité à l'heptane normal a été appliquée à I'IFP dans le cadre d'un programme de valorisation des huiles lourdes en association avec les compagnies pétrolières Elf et Total France. Cette méthode consiste à évaluer à la microscopie électronique par transmission le taux de dispersion des asphaltènes, selon une méthode développée par Total France (M. Peyrot. Il existe une relation entre ce taux de dispersion et l'émission particulaire. Ce phénomène a été nettement observé dans le cas de fuels lourds constitués par

A I'IFP, nous utilisons un champ magnétique élevé de 9,4 T qui permet de différencier les protons de l'huile (fig. 7 de ceux de l'eau (fig. 8 et d'obtenir des coupes d'épaisseur 50 µm. L'obtention de profils de saturation (fig. 10 a permis de comparer les profils obtenus par IRM à ceux obtenus par simulation numérique de l'expérience de déplacement étudiée (fig. 11. Cette comparaison valide les profils de saturation expérimentaux et définit une possible utilisation de l'IRM comme méthode de détermination des courbes de perméabilités relatives et de pression capillaire représentatives d'une expérience de déplacement. Cependant un intérêt majeur de l'IRM par rapport à d'autres techniques tomographiques est d'apporter une meilleure résolution, une possibilité d'obtenir une information tridimensionnelle ainsi que des paramètres non accessibles jusqu'à présent (images de vitesse. De plus, l'extrapolation des résultats obtenus en spectroscopie à l'imagerie ou aux diagraphies constitue une potentialité importante de la RMN pour l'avenir et est l'enjeu de recherches actives dans de nombreux laboratoires ou compagnies pétrolières dans le monde.

    ériques totales chez les nourrissons vivant à La Havane. Méthodes Des échantillons de sang ont été collectés chez 877 nourrissons. Les données sur les symptômes de la maladie allergique et sur une large gamme d'expositions ont été recueillies. Résultats La médiane des IgE était de 35 UI/ml (gamme interquartile: 13 à 96). Le risque d'avoir un taux d'IgE au-dessus de la médiane était plus élevé pour les enfants qui avaient été allaités pendant au moins quatre mois (odds ratio ajusté (OR): 1,28; intervalle de confiance (IC) à 95%: 1,02 à 1,61) et pour les enfants pour qui des cafards ont été signalés dans la maison (OR: 1,30; IC 95%: 1,03 à 1,63). Le risque était plus faible pour les enfants dont la mère possédait un emploi rémunéré (OR: 0,73; IC 95%: 0,54 à 0,97 par rapport à ceux dont les mères n'avaient pas cet emploi, pour les enfants vivant dans des foyers où le gaz et l’électricité étaient utilisés pour la cuisson (OR: 0,45; IC 95%: 0,32 à 0,62 par rapport à l'utilisation de l’électricité seule) et pour les enfants ayant des animaux domestiques à la naissance (OR: 0,83; IC 95%: 0,70 à 1,00). Il n'y avait pas d'association entre les taux d'IgE sériques et l'utilisation de paracétamol. Conclusions Les associations avec la consommation du gaz carburant et l'emploi de la mère indiquent que les taux d'IgE en début de vie sont plus faibles chez les enfants vivant dans une relative richesse. La différence dans l'effet de l'exposition précoce aux animaux de compagnie ou à des cafards pourrait refléter des différences dans ces allergènes, ou être confondu par la richesse relative. Une investigation plus approfondie de cette cohorte permettra de déterminer comment ces effets se traduisent dans l'expression de la maladie allergique plus tard dans la vie. Objetivo La inmunoglobulina E (IgE) juega un papel clave en la patogénesis de la enfermedad alérgica, pero se conoce poco sobre los factores ambientales asociados con

    '(AECL) a entrepris en 1956 des travaux sur l'irradiation des pommes de terre en utilisant comme source des barreaux de combustible epuise. En 1958, l'AECL a concu et fabrique le premier appareil Gammacell 220, qui est un irradiateur complet, et l'on n'a plus utilise que du cobalt-60 pour l'execution du programme d'irradiation des aliments. En 1960, la premiere autorisation du service de controle des produits alimentaires et pharmaceutiques a ete obtenue pour les pommes de terre. La phase suivante consistait a montrer aux producteurs et distributeurs de pommes de terre que le cobalt-60 est un instrument sans danger, simple et sur, et que l'irradiation entrave la germination. En 1961 l'AECL a concu et fabrique un irradiateur mobile afin d'executer le programme de demonstration. L'irradiateur a ete monte sur une remorque routiere entierement equipee et, au cours de la saison 1961/1962, 500 tonnes de pommes de terre ont ete irradiees en divers endroits du Canada oriental. En 1965, l'AECL a concu et construit le premier irradiateur commercial de denrees alimentaires pour la compagnie Newfield Products Ltd. Pendant l'execution du programme d'irradiation des pommes.de terre, l'AECL a lance des programmes communs avec des laboratoires canadiens de recherche sur les produits alimentaires, en utilisant d'autres appareils Gammacell. En 1960, l'AECL a construit une installation d'irradiation en casemate dans son etablissement d'Ottawa pour l'irradiation d'articles plus volumineux tels que des quartiers de porcs et des regimes de bananes. Au cours de l'annee 1963, l'irradiateur mobile, qui avait deja montre son utilite, a ete modifie en vue d'elargir ses applications: l'intensite de la source a ete augmentee et il a ete equipe d'un dispositif de refroidissement des produits; en outre, la remorque a ete climatisee. Ainsi transforme, il a ete utilise en Californie pour l'irradiation d'une grande variete de fruits a la station du Departement de l'agriculture des Etats-Unis, a Fresno. Le

    permanently open camera. The paper discusses the characteristics of these two types of detector and the preliminary results obtained. (author) [French] Les cameras a rayons X ou {gamma} sont essentiellement constituees par une optique, stenopee ou grille, associee a un detecteur. Les auteurs proposent deux types de detecteur tout a fait differents du dispositif de'Anger, jusqu'ici le seul a avoir ete pratiquement utilise. Le premier est constitue par une chambre a etincelle auto-declenchee. Cette chambre, d'une vingtaine de centimetres de diametre et remplie d'un gaz rare (argon ou xenon), presente une cathode et deux grilles. La cathode et la deuxieme grille sont soumises a une difference de potentiel de quelques kilovolts, un peu inferieure a la tension de claquage. Le premier espace cathode-grille sert de source d'electron sous l'action des photons X ou {gamma} de faible energie. On peut egalement utiliser un placage de la cathode par un metal de Z eleve ou un cristal scintillateur associe a une photocathode. La bouffee brusque de charges due a la multiplication des electrons dans l'avalanche de Townsend declenche, apres amplification convenable, une etincelle bien localisee avec un retard d'une fraction de {mu}s. L'image est obtenue au moyen d'un appareil photographique dont l'obturateur est ouvert en permanence. Le second type de detecteur est constitue par un cristal de CsI(Tl) associe a la photocathode d'un tube Thomson a focalisation electrostatique de 20 cm de diametre. L'image sur l'ecran secondaire de ce tube est transferee au moyen d'un dispositif optique sur la photocathode d'un tube a champ electrique et magnetique parallele, de la compagnie English Electric Valve, jouant le role d'obturateur. Une partie de la lumiere penetrant dans le dispositif optique est recue par un photomultiplicateur qui commande l'ouverture du tube obturateur par l'intermediaire d'un selecteur d'amplitude. Cet artifice permet d'effectuer la selection entre la lumiere due au signal et

    .), responsible for maintenance of all mechanical equipment; and (5) Service maintainers: responsible for a wide variety of less skilled tasks requiring lower qualifications. In addition to these general categories a few specialists are required, such as chemists and radiation protection officers. Organization of the NPD staff and training for future nuclear-power needs will be discussed. (author) [French] La centrale nucleaire de demonstration canadienne (NPD), creee par un organisme federal, l'Atomic Energy of Canada Limited, est exploitee par une compagnie provinciale de distribution d'electricite, la Hydro-Electric Power Commission of Ontario, qui pourvoit aussi aux besoins en personnel. Le recrutement et la formation du personnel de la centrale ont ete difficiles du fait que, recemment encore, la plupart des besoins en electricite de l'Ontario pouvaient etre satisfaits par les abondantes ressources hydro-electriques de cette province. La multiplication des centrales thermiques, depuis 1950, a cree une enorme demande de personnel. Pour faire face a cette situation, on a organise la formation de personnel pour les centrales nucleaires de la maniere suivante: a) un groupe initial d'ingenieurs a ete selectionne parmi des specialistes ayant une vaste experience des travaux dans le domaine nucleaire de l 'exploitation des centrales thermiques et de la production d'electricite; b) on a selectionne un autre groupe d'operateurs et d'agents des services d'entretien hautement qualifies; c) ces groupes ont recu une formation systematique comprenant l'exploitation de centrales nucleaires et de centrales thermiques a charbon, un enseignement theorique et pratique et des instructions donnees par les specialistes qui ont concu les plans de NPD ; d) un centre de formation nucleaire a ete cree et charge de la selection et de la formation du personnel supplementaire ainsi que de l 'organisation des examens officiels; il doit s'assurer, d'une maniere generale, de la competence du personnel
