    This document presents, by region, the localization of existing radioactive wastes in France at the date of December 31, 2004. In addition to the geographic situation, this inventory is presented by site and by category of waste producer or owner. The collection of these data is based on the free declaration made by waste owners or producers. The gathered information has been reformatted and homogenized and is reported in a synthetic way in the form of tables and files. Thus, 899 sites have been indexed, among which 159 are presented in the form of a detailed file. For each region, a table details the registered sites by category of producer/owner and the location of the main ones is reported on a regional map. The registered waste producers are radionuclide users belonging to 4 specific domains: medical, research, industry and national defense. The corresponding wastes are in general modest both in quantity and activity. The sites polluted by radioactive substances are also mentioned, even if they are already decontaminated or not. (J.S.)

  9. En Inde, dans les salles de cinéma, les spectateurs sont-ils acteurs ou simples spectateurs ? In Indian cinemas, can members of the audience be qualified as actors or simply spectators?

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2012-04-01

    Full Text Available Si la question du rôle du spectateur peut se poser sur un plan général, elle prend une dimension particulière lorsque l’on se penche sur le cas des spectateurs indiens. En effet, en Inde, depuis les débuts du cinéma, le public ne se contente pas d’être seulement spectateur des œuvres projetées. Il se démarque ainsi du rôle qui lui avait été originairement attribué dans l’épopée indienne le Ramayana où il assistait sans réagir au sacrifice de Sita. On peut donc se demander s’il conviendrait de lui attribuer le qualificatif de « spectacteur », néologisme utilisé dans le cadre des SIC1. Pour répondre à cette interrogation, nous remonterons aux premières réflexions portant sur le public de théâtre, dominées par la notion aristotélicienne de catharsis. De là, nous ferons un parallèle avec le « contrat de feintise » évoqué dans le Nâtya-Shâstra (ou traité de théâtre indien, et verrons dans quelle mesure ce contrat entre le spectateur et l’œuvre peut s’appliquer au public de cinéma en Inde. Par la suite, dans une étude plus générale de la place du spectateur d’œuvres cinématographiques, nous expliquerons en quoi les spectateurs indiens se différencient, ne serait-ce que dans leurs attitudes lors des projections filmiques, des spectateurs occidentaux. Cela nous conduira à aborder la question de l’interactivité entre le public et l’œuvre, et à déterminer de quelle manière le public peut interagir sur une œuvre projetée.The spectator’s role in general is often questioned, but in the case of Indian spectators, it takes a whole new turn. Indeed, in India, since the arrival of cinema, members of the audience do not content themselves with being simply spectators of the films projected. In that way, they distinguish themselves from their original role attributed by the epic poem, the Ramayana, in which they watched Sita’s sacrifice without reacting. Therefore, we can ask

    2001-11-01

    Full Text Available Au cours des dernières décennies, les cultures pérennes ont connu un formidable essor dans les zones tropicales humides. Grâce à une demande toujours croissante en chocolat, café et caoutchouc naturel, les plantations de cacaoyers, de caféiers et d’hévéas se sont répandues sur plusieurs dizaines de millions d’hectares à travers tous les continents. Pour ce qui concerne les oléagineux, les cultures de cocotiers et, plus récemment, de palmiers à huile, ont connu des évolutions comparables. Les retours financiers que procurent ces cultures sont considérables et pèsent souvent de manière déterminante sur les économies des pays producteurs. Par ailleurs, ces productions agricoles alimentent aussi des filières économiques dynamiques et importantes pour les pays du Nord, telles que celles des pneumatiques, de l’agro-alimentaire ou des produits cosmétiques. Cependant, le nouveau contexte de politiques libéralisées et mondialisées, ainsi que l’émergence de questions nouvelles sur la gestion durable des territoires et des ressources naturelles, amènent à s’interroger sur la place qui sera réservée à ces productions agricoles au cours du xxie siècle.

  18. Les psychopathes sont-ils heureux ? Un défi pour la moralité

    2012-04-01

    Full Text Available Dans le but de défendre la thèse de la correspondance entre le comportement moral et le bonheur, j’analyse dans cet article le cas problématique des psychopathes. Les psychopathes sont des individus qui ne reculent devant aucun interdit moral pour satisfaire leurs désirs, et qui ne ressentent aucun remord ou scrupule face à leurs agissements. En ce sens, ils paraissent obtenir un « ticket gratuit » dans le domaine de la moralité. Comment un défenseur de la thèse de la correspondance entre moralité et bonheur peut-il rendre compte du cas du psychopathe ? Le psychopathe vient-il réfuter cette thèse, ou représente-t-il plutôt une exception légitime ? Je défendrai ici une solution alternative ; après avoir proposé une version plausible de la thèse de la correspondance, je tenterai de démontrer que les psychopathes ne sont pas heureux, et ce en vertu de caractéristiques essentielles de la psychopathie. Leur statut de « criminel en puissance » et leur faible capacité de contentement sont les deux éléments centraux qui m’amèneront à conclure que les psychopathes ne sont pas heureux. Loin de réfuter ou d’échapper à la thèse de la correspondance, le cas des psychopathes vient donc en réalité renforcer cette thèse.My goal in this paper is to defend the idea of a general correspondence between happiness and morality, and I do so by analyzing the problematic case of psychopaths. Psychopaths are individuals who are not bothered by moral restrictions when it comes to satisfying their desires. They feel no remorse and have no scruples, and as such they appear to be “free-riders” in the realm of morality. The unusual case of psychopaths will therefore pose a problem to someone who argues that there is a correspondence between happiness and morality: should psychopaths be seen as refuting the correspondence rule, or are they merely a legitimate exception to that rule? I will propose an alternative explanation; after

    2006-11-01

    Full Text Available Une protection accrue de l'environnement requiert la mise en place de nouvelles techniques fiables et économiques de traitement des déchets polymères. Parmi les diverses méthodes envisagées pour la réutilisation ou l'élimination des polymères usagés, les recyclages énergétiques et chimiques peuvent apporter des solutions satisfaisantes et complémentaires au recyclage de la matière. Cet article fait le point sur l'état d'avancement des techniques de valorisation énergétique et chimique des rejets de polymères et il propose une analyse critique des traitements actuels. Increased environmental protection requires the installation of new treatment techniques for polymer wastes. Competitive industrial facilities are not available from the economic standpoint for recycling spent plastic and rubber wastes in the form of materials, especially when mixtures are involved. It is only by using other treatment method for the chemical or energy upgrading of polymers, as a supplement to the recycling of materials, that it should be possible to make a significant reduction in the amount of spent polymers currently being scrapped. The energy upgrading of wastes by incineration with energy recovery or by pyrolysis with the formation of fuels in an interesting approach for a great many countries. When no reuse is possible, the energy content of the material is upgraded before the subsequent scrapping of an ultimate residue that is reduced to its incompressible minimum after having been inerted. There are currently several technical solutions for incineration furnaces and the treatment of the fumes produced, which meet the more and more severe requirements concerning environmental protection. Incineration systems with energy recovery can recover about 8000 thermies per ton of unsorted plastics. They already have an important position, albeit a varying one, from one European country to another (Table 6. They should develop considerably further in

    2015-12-01

    Full Text Available « Camus ou l’artiste au travail » voudrait rappeler quelques aspects du riche parcours vital, littéraire et intellectuel de l’écrivain et penseur français Albert Camus. C’est à partir de la nouvelle « Jonas ou l’artiste au travail », rédigée vers 1953, que ce portrait sera dressé. Camus y propose une satire mordante du milieu artistique et intellectuel parisien où il étouffe et dépérit depuis la controverse, provoquée par la parution de son essai L’Homme révolté, qui l’oppose au cercle sartrien et à la gauche communiste. Ce conte philosophique, assez énigmatique et bien moins connu que les romans majeurs que sont L’Étranger, La Peste ou La Chute, permet cependant de creuser dans l’univers tragique de l’auteur qui, à l’image de ce qui arrive au peintre Jonas (et que l’on retrouve chez l’étranger Meursault, le docteur Rieux et le juge-pénitent Clamence se sent tiraillé entre l’existence solitaire et l’existence solidaire.

Cependant, il ne dit pas ce qu’il aurait fallu faire comme type de variétés pour avoir le même progrès économique dans la culture du maïs. Chez cette espèce, le clonage étant exclu, si ce n’est pas la voie lignée, c’est la voie population. Nous allons donc comparer ces deux voies à la voie hybride. Pour cela, nous allons d’abord nous placer dans le cas où les effets des gènes sont tels qu’ils permettent, en théorie, d’obtenir des lignées aussi bonnes que les hybrides, c’est-à-dire qu’il n’y a pas d’avantage de l’état hétérozygote à un locus (encadré 1. Il est en effet évident que s’il y a des mécanismes génétiques qui font que l’état hétérozygote à un locus est meilleur que l’état homozygote (on dit qu’il y a superdominance, alors il faudra développer des hybrides. Nous montrerons que, même en dehors de cette situation, la voie hybride est la seule qui puisse apporter le maximum de rendement et de marge brute à l’hectare, et cela pendant un temps assez long (plus d’un siècle. Nous considérerons le cas de superdominance, ou de situations apparentées, dans une seconde étape.

  12. Subverting the Dominant Order: Narrative as Weapon in Simone de Beauvoir's Tous les hommes sont mortels

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Barbara Klaw

    1996-06-01

    Full Text Available This essay argues that through the narrative techniques of point of view and embedding, Beauvoir carefully constructed her narrative and those of her male and female characters in Tous les hommes sont mortels , her third novel, published in 1946, in order to explain why males dominate society and to encourage women to fight against the current patriarchal social order. Many critics view Fosca as the principal character, and his 400-page embedded recapitulation of his past as the predominant text, but shifting the focus from Fosca to Régine, who constitutes the only focalizer of present events in the embedding text, clarifies many details previously judged as faults. This study advances that the awkwardness of the characters and of the linking of the narrative strands needs to be reinterpreted in relation to thematic repetitions and contradictions, the narrator's reliability, the use of time, psychoanalytic theory, the author's life at the time of writing, cultural history, and theories concerning énonciation . The interplay of these elements indicates the ways in which narrative is wielded as a weapon which ultimately promotes female independence in the struggle between the sexes.

    1998-05-01

    The purpose of the present study is to evaluate possibilities of the production of biogas from the process of codigestion of industrial organic waste with purification station sludges or with liquid manure. The most interesting waste will be selected from its potential energy value, from the fact that the ways of its elimination are unsatisfactory, and by checking whether its codigestion is not well known yet. Fifteen types of waste products have been examined, of which seven have been studied with more details. Among these, five have not been retained (peelings or spoilt vegetables, coffee-grounds, waste from the manufactory of condiments, contains of cattle paunch,'Marc' of grapes), mainly because of their small production or their satisfactory elimination. The two remaining waste products, the 'Marc' of fruits and the whey, are materials that are worth further study because they are produced in great quantity and for the following reasons: (i) the proportions of blending of fruit's Marc as well as the limits of charges to respect in order to optimise their codigestion, from the biological as well as the energetic point of view, are not well known; (ii) the whey represents an important energetic potential in Switzerland. If for today it doesn't give much problem of elimination, it could give some in a middle term.

    The first part of this thesis presents the regulatory framework and the technical context linked with the study of stabilized/solidified wastes and with the evaluation of stabilization/solidification processes. A presentation of the two type of ultimate wastes under study (a used catalyst and an activated charcoal) and an analysis of the processes is given. The second part is devoted to the experimental characterization of both types of porous wastes. The third part deals with the processing of such wastes using an hydraulic binder. The study stresses on both on the stabilization/solidification efficiency of the process and on the conditions of its implementation. The same work is made for a process that uses a bituminous binder. Some choice criteria for the selection of the better process are deduced from the examination of the overall data collected. The waste characterization methodology is applied six times: two times for the raw wastes, two times for the same wastes processed with an hydraulic binder, and two times for the same wastes processed with a bituminous binder.

  15. OGM Diffusion des OGM et impact pour les agriculteurs : quels sont les liens ?

    2001-05-01

    Full Text Available Les OGM actuellement sur le marché présentent des innovations sur des fonctions de protection des plantes. Selon les problèmes de protection des plantes, les gains des agriculteurs liés à l’adoption des OGM sont très variables. Cette hétérogénéité pose d’importants problèmes méthodologiques pour pouvoir estimer correctement la distribution des gains pour l’ensemble des agriculteurs. Une synthèse de plusieurs études américaines est réalisée ici et met bien en évidence la diversité des méthodes utilisées, chacune d’elles présentant ses avantages et ses limites. Globalement, si la diffusion des OGM est un fait indéniable, les études ne permettent pas de tirer des conclusions aussi nettes quant à l’impact des OGM pour tous les agriculteurs qui adoptent ces produits, et cela en particulier pour le soja. Cette absence de conclusion s’explique en grande partie par la difficulté à mesurer certains facteurs qui influencent le comportement d’adoption, comme par exemple la simplification de la conduite des cultures. En contrepartie, il faut noter que les études présentées ici ne prennent pas en compte un certain nombre d’effets indirects qui peuvent faire diminuer les gains des agriculteurs.

    Full Text Available Le terme d’éco-quartier est aujourd’hui largement utilisé par les professionnels de l’urbanisme comme par la presse et se trouve souvent utilisé comme synonyme de quartier durable. Tous deux désigneraient ces projets d’urbanisme ayant des objectifs environnementaux, sociaux et économiques ambitieux qui se multiplient en France depuis quelques années. Toutefois, dans la pratique, cette synonymie est loin de faire l’unanimité. Sont-ce des quartiers durables, des éco-quartiers ou les deux ? C’est sur cette question de vocabulaire que cet article souhaite se pencher alors même que l’objet qu’ils sont sensés décrire reste lui-même encore à définir précisément. Ceci en axant particulièrement cette interrogation sur la pertinence de l’utilisation de l’expression d’éco-quartier pour désigner ces nouveaux morceaux de ville créés dans un nouveau contexte de réflexion environnementale et humaine. Nous partirons pour cela des diverses utilisations qui en sont faites en tenant compte du contexte matériel, théorique et temporel, dans lequel ces nouveaux éléments de l’urbanisme s’insèrent. Nous verrons également que l’utilisation qui en est faite résonne au delà d’une simple question sémantique.

The only reasonable energy policy would therefore involve improving the collection and use of wood and food crop waste, which already account for 10% of the world's energy production. Last in line comes artificial photosynthesis, which is often described as an energy source that competes with photovoltaic energy. The term 'artificial photosynthesis' is devoid of any technical meaning. What it really comes down to is communication. However, it does seem possible to imitate certain components of the photosynthetic apparatus, such as those involved in decomposing water into hydrogen and oxygen.

Les efforts déployés en réaction se sont révélés être si désordonnés qu’ils risquent de ne pas être très efficaces. Plus à l’est, les riverains du détroit de Malacca ont réussi à chasser les pirates. Cependant, ce succès souvent montré en exemple demeure relatif et en aucun cas dû aux seules patrouilles mises en place.Since last August, there were markedly more attacks registered off the Horn of Africa. The lack of coordination between the numerous initiatives is making surveillance operations inefficient. Further in the east, the littoral States along the Malacca Straits have managed to expel the pirates. Nevertheless, this success – often showed as an example – is not total. Moreover, it is not only due to the sea and air patrols.

Le problème est de rechercher l’impact réel des formulations des rations utilisées dans les élevages sur la valeur nutritionnelle des produits (viandes, lait et laitages, fromages et œufs, etc., et donc leur influence sur la santé du consommateur, évidemment dans un sens favorable. Les acides gras poly-insaturés oméga-3 (ω3 bénéficient de deux grands axes de valorisation. Le premier réside dans leur importance quantitative et leurs rôles dans le cadre de la mise en place et du maintien de divers organes, le cerveau au premier chef. Le second se trouve dans la prévention de diverses pathologies, les maladies cardio-vasculaires occupant une place prépondérante \\; avec, depuis peu, les maladies neuro-psychiatriques, stress, dépression et démence. Compte tenu des implications en termes de maladies, cardio-cérébro-vasculaires entre autres, le contrôle de la nature des acides gras constitutifs des graisses représente donc un enjeu considérable en ce qui concerne les viandes issues d’animaux terrestres, maritimes et aériens, du lait, des laitages, fromages et des œufs. Car la qualité des graisses données en nourriture animale détermine fondamentalement la valeur nutritionnelle des aliments qui en sont dérivés, pour la consommation humaine. Bien évidemment, il est relativement difficile de modifier la composition en acides gras des phospholipides constitutifs des membranes biologiques intégrées dans la multitude de types cellulaires, dont la spécificité est largement

En regard de ces données et des sources actuellement utilisées, les spécificités des différents vecteurs alimentaires des oméga 3 sont décrites. L’étude Aquitaine a montré que les lipides d’origine animale contribuaient à 73 % de l’apport alimentaire en ALA. Augmenter le contenu de celui-ci dans les produits d’animaux d’élevage via leur alimentation dans laquelle on introduit des sources d’ALA (colza, lin ou de DHA (huiles de poissons représente une stratégie d’optimisation. À cet égard, les résultats sont plus intéressants avec les monogastriques comparés aux polygastriques. En dépit de son potentiel, le vecteur des huiles végétales est trop peu exploité, il n’apporte actuellement que 9 % de l’apport global d’ALA. Pour couvrir les besoins en ALA, sans modification des autres habitudes alimentaires, il faudrait que l’ALA représente 8 % des acides gras totaux consommés sous forme d’huile, contre 0,5-0,6 % actuellement.

We see that the situation is ambiguous, in the sense that unionized sectors do not systematically have better measures, the gendered situation is also mixed and the percentage of workplaces offering measures has not systematically increased either.

La precision des approches inverses et indirectes utilisees aujourd'hui est principalement limitee par la qualite des mesures acoustiques obtenues en tube d'impedance. En consequence, cette these se penche sur quatre problemes qui aideront a l'atteinte de l'objectif global precite. Le premier probleme porte sur une caracterisation precise de la porosite ouverte des materiaux poreux. Cette propriete en est une de passage permettant de lier la mesure des proprietes dynamiques acoustiques d'un materiau poreux aux proprietes effectives de sa phase fluide decrite par les modeles semi-phenomenologiques. Le deuxieme probleme traite de l'hypothese de symetrie des materiaux poreux selon leur epaisseur ou un index et un critere sont proposes pour quantifier l'asymetrie d'un materiau. Cette hypothese est souvent source d'imprecision des methodes de caracterisation inverses et indirectes en tube d'impedance. Le critere d'asymetrie propose permet ainsi de s'assurer de l'applicabilite et de la precision de ces methodes pour un materiau donne. Le troisieme probleme vise a mieux comprendre le probleme de transmission sonore en tube d'impedance en presentant pour la premiere fois un developpement exact du probleme par decomposition d'ondes. Ce developpement permet d'etablir clairement les limites des nombreuses methodes existantes basees sur des tubes de transmission a 2, 3 ou 4 microphones. La meilleure comprehension de ce probleme de transmission est importante puisque c'est par ce type de mesures que des methodes permettent d'extraire successivement la matrice de transfert d'un materiau poreux et ses proprietes dynamiques intrinseques comme son impedance caracteristique et son nombre d'onde complexe.

  8. Tolerance and biomarkers as useful tools for assessing environmental quality in the Oued Souss estuary (Bay of Agadir, Morocco).

    The aim of this study was to assess aquatic environmental quality of Oued Souss (Agadir, Morocco). This estuary has been subjected for a long time to large amounts of sewage discharges and industrial effluents. Since November 2002, no waste outlets have been discharged in this site due to their connection to a wastewater purification plant. Firstly, we have compared metal tolerance of the annelid polychaete (Nereis diversicolor) originating from Oued Souss and a relatively clean site (Oualidia, Morocco). Secondly, we have evaluated with a multi-marker approach (acetylcholinesterase [AChE], glutathione-S-transferases [GSTs], catalase, thiobarbituric acid reactive substances [TBARs]) responses of worms to the pollution gradient. Results have shown that worms from Oued Souss have acquired tolerance to copper and zinc due to a long-term sub-lethal metal exposure and this metal tolerance was maintained in spite of the end of wastewater discharges in this site. Higher catalase, GSTs and TBARs values have been observed in worms from Oued Souss sampled before implantation of wastewater treatment. The multi-marker approach confirms that these worms have been submitted to various contaminants. In contrast, high inhibition in AChE activities measured in worms from Oued Souss could be explained by the continuous agricultural influence of nearest areas. The level of contamination was probably maintained since biomarker values were generally higher in worms from Oued Souss when compared to Oualidia.

    Full Text Available Baie predikers vind dit moeilik om Christus vanuit die Ou Testament te verkondig. Die probleem van Christosentriese prediking uit die Ou Testament is wesenlik ’n hermeneutiese probleem. In hierdie artikel word gepoog om ’n antwoord hierop te bied deur eerstens bepaalde ankers in ’n see van hermeneutiese moontlikhede te identifiseer. Hierdie ankers sluit in die Christelike karakter van die Ou Testament en die eenheid tussen die Ou en Nuwe Testament met ’n universele boodskap. Ten einde Christus op ’n geloofwaardige en verantwoordelike wyse vanuit die Ou Testament te preek, is ’n eksegetiese metode waarin rekening gehou word met die karakter van die Ou Testament, sowel as die verhouding daarvan tot die Nuwe Testament, onontbeerlik. Die holisties histories-kritiese metode dien, na ons mening, Christosentriese prediking uit die Ou Testament die beste, aangesien dit die literêre, historiese en teologiese aspekte van ’n teks verreken. Terwyl ’n verantwoordelike eksegetiese metode die basis lê vir Christosentriese prediking uit die Ou Testament, word daar ook ’n verkenning gedoen van sinvolle (organiese oorgange vanuit Ou-Testamentiese narratiewe na die Nuwe Testament. Aangesien Christosentriese prediking uit die Ou Testament nie sonder gevare is nie, word enkele slaggate ten opsigte daarvan uit die Ou-Testamentiese narratiewe uitgelig.

    L’objet de notre analyse dialogique et co-énonciative concerne la forme prise par la relation entre un père et son fi ls au cours d’échanges verbaux. Dans cette dimension relationnelle, nous avons cherché plus particulièrement à éclairer le statut d’énonciateur que chacun octroie à lui-même et à l’autre. Les images qu’un père et un fi ls ont l’un de l’autre et les places qu’ils occupent dans le dialogue sont en partie déterminées par leur statut de père et d’enfant. Ces places ne confi gurent pas un mode relationnel homogène. Au contraire, cet extrait de corpus est frappant par la grande diversité d’attitudes adoptées par le père avec son enfant: tour à tour il lui donne des ordres, des permissions, le réconforte, joue avec lui, lui propose des défi s ou rivalise avec lui. Daniel peut entrer dans le jeu proposé par son père ou s’y opposer, se laisser guider ou refuser, mais aussi être à l’initiative par des demandes ou des jeux. C’est cette diversité que nous tentons de mettre au jour, sachant que certaines séquences se caractérisent plus particulièrement par des décalages entre les interlocuteurs, alors que d’autres conduisent à des ajustements. Si la diversité qui caractérise cet extrait ne saurait être étendue comme caractérisant toute interaction père/enfant, l’analyse qui en est faite peut servir de repère pour l’étude de nouvelles interactions parent/enfant.

    Two-particle interference is a fundamental feature of quantum mechanics, and is even less intuitive than wave-particle duality for a single particle. In this duality, classical concepts--wave or particle--are still referred to, and interference happens in ordinary space-time. On the other hand, two-particle interference takes place in a mathematical space that has no classical counterpart. Entanglement lies at the heart of this interference, as it does in the fundamental tests of quantum mechanics involving the violation of Bell's inequalities. The Hong, Ou and Mandel experiment is a conceptually simpler situation, in which the interference between two-photon amplitudes also leads to behaviour impossible to describe using a simple classical model. Here we report the realization of the Hong, Ou and Mandel experiment using atoms instead of photons. We create a source that emits pairs of atoms, and cause one atom of each pair to enter one of the two input channels of a beam-splitter, and the other atom to enter the other input channel. When the atoms are spatially overlapped so that the two inputs are indistinguishable, the atoms always emerge together in one of the output channels. This result opens the way to testing Bell's inequalities involving mechanical observables of massive particles, such as momentum, using methods inspired by quantum optics, and to testing theories of the quantum-to-classical transition. Our work also demonstrates a new way to benchmark non-classical atom sources that may be of interest for quantum information processing and quantum simulation.

    Full Text Available La Côte d’Ivoire est le plus grand théâtre des migrations cacaoyères en Afrique sub-saharienne, depuis le Sahel et les régions de savane vers les forêts humides du golfe de Guinée. Dans tout le sud-ouest de la Côte d’Ivoire, se côtoient trois grands groupes de populations, les autochtones, les migrants d’originaires du centre du pays, et les migrants venus du Burkina Faso, ayant construit des modèles alimentaires spécifiques avant de se rencontrer. L’objectif est d’identifier les évolutions depuis leur rencontre dans les forêts du sud-ouest, puis d’en expliquer les déterminants. Les données collectées auprès de 110 planteurs, par questionnaires et interviews, sont limitées à la composante alimentaire des céréales, tubercules, banane plantain. Le résultat le plus important est une conversion partielle des régimes alimentaires des migrants vers le riz, longtemps l’alimentation de base des autochtones. Au cours de la même période de 30 ans, les autochtones suivent un chemin opposé, réduisant leur consommation de riz, abandonnant presque la production. Pour expliquer cette énigme sociologique, les thèses néo-malthusiennes appliquées à la Côte d’Ivoire, un temps contestées, sont remises à l’ordre du jour, teintées d’innovations boserupiennes. À la croisée des changements écologiques, économiques et sociaux, la raréfaction des terres, la disparition des forêts au cours du déroulement du cycle du cacao, l’accès différencié au travail, jouent un rôle décisif dans ces changements alimentaires, via des bouleversements dans les systèmes de production et les rapports sociaux.The Ivory Coast is the largest space for cocoa migrations in sub-Saharan Africa, extending from the Sahel and savannah regions to the rainforests of the Gulf of Guinea.

Malgré cette association traditionnelle, plusieurs auteurs ont récemment contesté la complémentarité, voire même la compatibilité, de ces deux notions. Cet article examine tout d’abord deux arguments qui visent à établir l’incompatibilité de la tolérance et de la neutralité. Il montre ensuite que si ces arguments ne sont pas probants, en ce sens qu’ils ne parviennent pas à montrer l’impossibilité d’une conciliation entre tolérance et neutralité, ils mettent néanmoins en évidence deux difficultés qui se dressent sur le chemin d’une telle conciliation. Il introduit enfin une conception particulière de la tolérance fondée sur l’idée de justice et indique comment elle permet de remédier aux difficultés précédemment mises en évidence. Toleration and neutrality are usually considered as interchangeable or at least complementary responses to situations of conflict and moral disagreement. However, several authors have recently challenged the complementarity, and even the compatibility, of these two ideas. The paper details this challenge and examines how it can be met. The first part details two arguments against the compatibility of toleration and neutrality. The second shows that if these arguments are not convincing – in the sense that they fail to prove theimpossibilityof conciliating toleration with neutrality – they nevertheless help us to identify two problemsthat may prevent such a reconciliation. The third part sketches a justice-based conception of toleration and explains how it enables us to solve the two problems previously identified.

    Full Text Available Para avaliar a possibilidade de biorremediação em áreas contaminadas, é necessário determinar a biodegradação dos poluentes no solo. Para esta determinação, emprega-se comumente no Brasil, o método respirométrico de Bartha, adaptado de uma norma holandesa. Porém, os solos tropicais possuem características bem diferentes dos solos de regiões de clima temperado. Neste trabalho, foi estudada a aplicabilidade de tal método para um latossolo, tipo de solo predominante no Estado de São Paulo. A partir dos resultados obtidos, foi possível verificar que reações abióticas geram gás carbônico em quantidades significativas. Constatou-se, também, a dificuldade de esterilização do solo em autoclave, o que impossibilita a avaliação da remoção dos poluentes por outros mecanismos ou a biodegradação dos mesmos por microrganismos exógenos somente. Portanto, não se recomenda a aplicação do teste respirométrico de Bartha para a determinação da biodegradabilidade de poluentes em latossolos.One of the major parameters that influence the feasibility of using bioremediation in contaminated sites is the biodegradability of the compounds of concern. The Bartha's respirometric method, adapted from a Dutch norm, is a common method used in Brazil to determine such biodegradability. However, tropical soils present different characteristics as compared to soils from regions of temperate climate. In this research, its applicability was studied for a latosoil, which is the predominant soil type in São Paulo State, Brazil. Based on the results of this study, it can be concluded that abiotic reactions in latosoil generated carbonic gas in significant concentrations. Furthermore, this research verified the difficulty of sterilizing the soil, which would make it difficult to evaluate the removal of contaminants by other mechanisms or the biodegradation by exogenous microorganisms. Therefore, the application of Bartha’s respirometric method

    An accurate estimation of the alpha-activity of a nuclear waste package is necessary to select the best mode of storage. The main purpose of this work is to develop a non-destructive active method, based on the fission process and allowing the identification of actinides ({sup 235}U, {sup 238}U, {sup 239}Pu). These three elements are the main alpha emitters contained inside a package. Our technique is based on the detection of delayed gammas emitted by fission products. These latter are created by irradiation with the help of a neutron or photon beam. Performances of this method have been investigated after an Active Photon or Neutron Interrogation (INA or IPA). Three main objectives were fixed in the framework of this thesis. First, we measured many yields of photofission products to compensate the lack of data in the literature. Then, we studied experimental performances of this method to identify a given actinide ({sup 239}Pu in fission, {sup 235}U in photofission) present in an irradiated mixture. Finally, we assessed the application of this technique on different mock-up packages for both types of interrogation (118 l mock-up package containing EVA in fission, 220 l mock-up package with a wall of concrete in photofission).

    Full Text Available Ayant choisi de vivre dans un camion, les héros d’Au fil du temps (film de Wim Wenders de 1976 font du seuil une expérience particulière. Celle de la rupture avec toute idée de foyer et celle du refus d’appartenance à la terre natale, cette terre allemande traversée par une frontière le long de laquelle ils vont voyager, et qui les renvoie à chaque instant aux traumatismes de l’Histoire. Sur le pare-brise du camion, l’extérieur (campagnes indifférenciées, villes à l’abandon… et l’intérieur se superposent. Au fil du temps questionne le paysage : il s’agit d’en décoller un à un les mythes qui le recouvrent. L’image alors n’est plus surface mais volume à traverser, à lacérer et découvrir ce qui est tissé dans le paysage. La démarche de Wenders est alors proche de celle d’un de ses contemporains : Anselm Kiefer. Le paysage allemand provoque le rejet parce qu’il y a là toujours plus que le visible : des strates et des strates de culpabilité que le mythe - et c’est sa fonction - a recouvert. Et qu’il s’agira ici, de soulever. Le choix du nomadisme, c’est celui d’un état de l’humanité antérieur à l’idée de patrie. Et c’est aussi celui de la solitude, comme prix à payer à ce refus d’appartenance et à cette mise à jour des mythes. L’appartenance à la terre allemande et à son Histoire est profondément problématique parce que les pères sont fondamentalement coupables. On se reconnaîtra alors des pères de substitution : des pères de cinéma (Nicholas Ray ou Fritz Lang. Et l’on substituera l’Histoire du cinéma à l’Histoire.

    Full Text Available Baie predikers vind dit moeilik om Christus vanuit die Ou Testament te verkondig. Die probleem van Christosentriese prediking uit die Ou Testament is wesenlik ’n hermeneutiese probleem. In hierdie artikel word gepoog om ’n antwoord hierop te bied deur eerstens bepaalde ankers in ’n see van hermeneutiese moontlikhede te identifiseer. Hierdie ankers sluit in die Christelike karakter van die Ou Testament en die eenheid tussen die Ou en Nuwe Testament met ’n universele boodskap. Ten einde Christus op ’n geloofwaardige en verantwoordelike wyse vanuit die Ou Testament te preek, is ’n eksegetiese metode waarin rekening gehou word met die karakter van die Ou Testament, sowel as die verhouding daarvan tot die Nuwe Testament, onontbeerlik. Die holisties histories-kritiese metode dien, na ons mening, Christosentriese prediking uit die Ou Testament die beste, aangesien dit die literêre, historiese en teologiese aspekte van ’n teks verreken. Terwyl ’n verantwoordelike eksegetiese metode die basis lê vir Christosentriese prediking uit die Ou Testament, word daar ook ’n verkenning gedoen van sinvolle (organiese oorgange vanuit Ou-Testamentiese narratiewe na die Nuwe Testament. Aangesien Christosentriese prediking uit die Ou Testament nie sonder gevare is nie, word enkele slaggate ten opsigte daarvan uit die Ou-Testamentiese narratiewe uitgelig.Hermeneutical challenges encountered by Christ-centered preaching from Old Testament narratives. Many ministers find it difficult to preach Christ from the Old Testament. The problem of Christocentric preaching from the Old Testament is essentially a hermeneutical problem. In this article an answer is proposed, firstly by identifying specific anchors in a sea of hermeneutic possibilities. These include the Christian character of the Old Testament, and the unity between the Old and New Testaments with a universal message. In order to preach Christ in a credible and responsible manner from the Old

    Full Text Available Le terme d’identité est utilisé dans de nombreux domaines et notre étude pose la question de ce que peut être une identité en langue et plus particulièrement dans le traitement des phrases à copule. En s’appuyant sur la classification proposé par Higgins (1973, on se propose de distinguer l’identité de la spécification et de l’identification à l’aide de différents outils concernant deux problématiques : qu’elle peut être la forme d’une identité pour une phrase à copule et quel type de définition peut-on lui donner ? Pour ce qui concerne la forme, les phrases données comme des identités et traitées par les logiciens et philosophes en termes de vrai ou faux ne correspondent pas à ce qu’on peut supposer être des identités en langue : par exemple, en français, une phrase comme « Cicéron est Tullius » n’est pas valide et doit comporter c’est à la place de est (comme d’ailleurs les phrases spécificationnelles et identificationnelles pour ne pas paraître artificielle. On peut trouver une justification à cela dans la dichotomie entre prédicationnelles et équatives proposée par Heycock & Kroch (1999. Les équatives regroupent la spécification, l’identification et l’identité, mais ces deux dernières sous-catégories ne sont pas clairement distinguées dans la plupart des travaux sur le sujet. Pour ce qui concerne les définitions, l’identité mathématique, d’une part, et sur la Théorie des Opérations Enonciatives (cf. Culioli & Desclès, 1981, parmi d’autres références, d’autre part, ne permettent pas de lever totalement le voile sur cette problématique. On pose donc une hypothèse où la forme et l’interprétation sont liées : l’identité se présente sous la forme d’une phrase en X c’est Y où les deux termes X et Y possèdent exactement la même structure interne, et par conséquent le même degré de référentialité. Ceci nous permet de d’envisager les caract

    Full Text Available Dans cet article, j’analyse à la lumière des normes libérales de la politique délibérative le bien-fondé de l’action directe contre les institutions internationales associées au néolibéralisme et à la mondialisation du capitalisme (Banque mondiale, Organisation mondiale du commerce, etc.. Le processus délibératif de ces organismes étant illégitime du point de vue de la théorie de la politique délibérative, les activistes du mouvement altermondialiste sont en droit de contester ces organismes. De plus, une attitude de contestation peut avoir en elle-même une valeur délibérative pour au moins sept raisons : (1 lancer une délibération ; (2 élargir la participation à la délibération ; (3 renforcer la représentativité ; (4 faire circuler l’information et faire connaître les arguments (publicité ; (5 stimuler l’imagination ; (6 pousser à l’action ; (7 relancer la délibération. Finalement, les mouvements sociaux tels que le mouvement altermondialiste peuvent être vus comme des forums délibératifs. Ainsi, qui veut évaluer la légitimité de l’action directe doit prendre en considération la nature délibérative du processus par lequel les activistes choisissent les moyens les plus efficaces à utiliser pour corriger les défauts du processus délibératif officiel et pour faire avancer l’égalité, la liberté et la justice.In this article I examine the legitimacy of direct action in relation to liberal deliberative norms and global institutions (World Bank, World Trade Organization, etc.. Since the deliberative processes of these institutions are illegitimate according to the theory of deliberative politics, the activists of the movement for global justice should be legitimate to confront these institutions. Moreover, confrontational action in itself may have a deliberative value for at least seven reasons: (1 initiating deliberation (agenda-setting ; (2 enlarging participation ; (3 enlarging

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    1994-01-01

    Full Text Available Toutes les langues ne suivent pas dans leurs énoncés-phrases la division morpho-syntaxique Sujet / Prédicat. Plutôt que d’organiser le contenu de l’énoncé à partir d’une des entités dont on parle, certaines langues partent de ce qui est dit de ces entités, que cela soit appelé prédicat ou relation prédicative ou fonction prédicative, etc... Cette différente perspective se manifeste alors en un schéma de construction qu’on peut appeler “schéma holophrastique”, distinct du schéma “subjectal” ou schéma sujet / prédicat. L’article cherche à mettre à l’épreuve l’intérêt de cette distinction de schémas en en montrant l’usage dans quelques langues amazoniennes dont certaines sont présentées dans ce recueil. On voit que l’opposition entre schémas prédicatifs renvoie à une dimension qui doit être maintenue distincte de l’aspect ou de la voix, même si ces trois dimensions s’entrecroisent constamment. PREDICACIÓN CON SUJETO, PREDICACIÓN SIN SUJETO: EJEMPLOS COLOMBIANOS. No todas las lenguas siguen en sus oraciones la división morfosintáctica Sujeto vs. Predicado. En vez de organizar el contenido de la oración a partir de una de las entidades de las cuales se está hablando, algunas lenguas prefieren partir de lo que se dice de estas entidades, llámese predicado, relación predicativa, función predicativa, etc... Esta diferencia de punto de partida o de perspectiva se manifiesta en un esquema de construcción que llamamos “esquema holofrástico”, bien diferente del esquema sujeto/predicado llamado también “esquema subjetal”. Este artículo trata de poner a prueba el interés de esta oposición de esquemas mostrando su uso en algunas de las lenguas amazónicas, algunas de las cuales hacen parte de este compendio. Se ve por ejemplo que los esquemas predicativos remiten a una dimensión semántica distinta de la del aspecto o de la de la voz aún cuando estas tres dimensiones se entrecruzan

    2007-01-01

    RÉSUMÉ OBJECTIF Renseigner les médecins de première ligne au sujet de l’identification précoce, du diagnostic et du traitement du trouble panique avec ou sans agoraphobie (TP/A). QUALITÉ DES DONNÉES Les données et recommandations présentées proviennent d’une recension des écrits scientifiques réalisée via les banques de données PsycLIT, PsyINFO et MEDLINE (1985 à 2006) en utilisant les descripteurs panic disorder, psychotherapy, psychosocial treatment, treatment et pharmacotherapy. Les recommandations formulées par les auteurs s’appuient sur des données probantes provenant d’études d’excellente qualité. Les informations concernant le diagnostic et l’évaluation du TP/A proviennent d’études épidémiologiques récentes, de consensus et d’opinions d’experts. PRINCIPAL MESSAGE Le TP/A est un trouble psychiatrique souvent rencontré en médecine de première ligne, mais il est fréquemment sous-diagnostiqué et sous-traité. L’identification précoce de ce trouble demande une attention particulière aux symptômes médicalement inexpliqués et, le cas échéant, le médecin doit utiliser des questions spécifiques permettant d’identifier d’éventuelles attaques de panique et de cerner leur signification pour le patient. Le traitement de premier choix pour ce trouble est une psychothérapie d’orientation cognitivo-comportementale administrée par un psychologue ou un psychiatre spécialisé. Si de telles ressources ne sont pas disponibles, le médecin peut opter pour un traitement psychopharmacologique. CONCLUSION Les médecins de famille peuvent jouer un rôle central dans l’identification et le traitement des patients souffrant d’un TP/A. PMID:17934032

    Introduction La transplantation rénale constitue le traitement idéal de l'insuffisance rénale chronique. Cependant il existe une insuffisance de donneurs contrairement aux receveurs dont le nombre ne cesse de s'accroitre. La méconnaissance de la transplantation par les hémodialysés et leur entourage pourrait être l'une des causes. Notre but était d’évaluer les connaissances et opinions de l'hémodialysé et de son entourage sur la transplantation rénale. Méthodes L'enquête menée en Aout 2013 avait inclus 83 hémodialysés de notre centre et 70 membres de leur entourage. Ils ont été soumis à un questionnaire qui portait sur les thèmes suivants: statut socio-économique, volonté d’être transplanté ou d’être donneur, avantages de la transplantation rénale, point de vue de la religion sur la transplantation. Aucun des individus interrogés n'avait jamais fait l'objet d'une transplantation ou d'un don d'organe. Résultats Parmi 83 hémodialysés on notait 49,4% de femmes avec une moyenne d’âge de 41,4±12 ans. Le niveau socio-économique bas représentait 66,7%. Le manque d'information chez était estimé à 62,7%. Seuls 41% se disaient être candidat à la transplantation rénale mais 12% seulement était inscrit sur la liste d'attente de greffe. La transplantation était estimée plus couteuse que l'hémodialyse par 50,6% des patients et seuls 71,1% estimaient qu'elle offrait une meilleure vie. Pour 20,5%, l'Islam s'opposerait au don cadavérique et pour 10,9% au don vivant. Parmi les 70 membres de l'entourage interrogé il y avait 56,8% de femmes; la moyenne d’âge était de 44,4±10,5 ans. Le niveau économique bas représentait 52,3%. Le manque d'information était estimé à 61,4%. Pour 56,8% la vie serait impossible avec un seul rein. Seuls 13,6% étaient inscrit sur le registre de don. Pour 45,5% l'Islam s'opposerait au don cadavérique. Conclusion Il importe d'intensifier la sensibilisation des hémodialysées et leur famille

    Full Text Available En Afrique du Nord, de nombreux aquifères sont surexploités, principalement du fait d’une agriculture irriguée intensive. Cependant, les politiques publiques qui ont cherché à réguler cet usage se sont montrées jusqu’à maintenant peu efficaces, du fait du manque de moyens et parce que les agriculteurs les considèrent comme peu légitimes. L’article analyse un cas de gestion collective de l’usage des eaux souterraines par les agriculteurs eux-mêmes, dans le cadre d’une association au Sud de la Tunisie. Dans la zone de Bsissi Oued El Akarit, l’administration multipliait dans les années 1990 les procédures de contrôle des puits, conduisant à de nombreux conflits. En 1999, les agriculteurs et l’administration se sont mis d’accord pour qu’un groupement de développement agricole soit créé spécifiquement pour contrôler les puits et forages dans cette zone. Depuis, le groupement a effectivement réussi à mettre en oeuvre un tel contrôle, mais reste toujours fragile financièrement car il ne s’auto-finance pas. Le processus de concertation qui a conduit à ce dispositif de gestion a réussi grâce à : i la posture de l’administration, à la fois ferme en matière d’application des lois en vigueurs, et ouverte à la concertation avec les agriculteurs, et ii aux compétences et à la légitimité des leaders du groupement. Cette expérience montre que, dans certains cas, les agriculteurs peuvent devenir partie prenante d’une cogestion des eaux souterraines pour un usage durable de cette ressource.

    Full Text Available L’industrie des céramiques traditionnelles, en particulier celle des matériaux de construction, connaît actuellement un important essor au Maroc. Une demande croissante se traduit par la création ou l’expansion de plusieurs unités de production (cimenteries, briqueteries,…. Ces matériaux, produits en fort tonnage, sont susceptibles de confiner certains déchets industriels dans un souci de respect environnemental. Ce confinement ne doit avoir de retombées négatives ni sur la performance du matériau, ni sur la santé. Notre objectif est le recyclage de ces déchets (produits à plusieurs millions de tonnes annuellement qui sont actuellement soit rejetés en mer ou stockés par leur mise en terril. L’objet de ce travail est le recyclage de deux sous produits industriels : le phosphogypse (rejet de la production de l’acide phosphorique et les cendres volantes (résidus de centrales thermiques par leur intégration dans la formulation de produits de la terre cuite. L’avantage est que la microstructure de ces matériaux présente une phase vitreuse susceptible de confiner certains métaux lourds sources de radioactivité. Plusieurs formulations ont ainsi été préparées. Les produits sont caractérisés (DRX, porosimétrie, comportement mécanique,.. en fonction de leur teneur en additifs, de la température de cuisson,… . L’ensemble des résultats est encourageant et nous permet de proposer les paramètres optimaux pour une substitution avantageuse des argiles par le phosphogypse et les cendres volantes pour l’élaboration de briques de terre cuite. The ceramics industry in particular traditional building materials, is undergoing a major expansion in Morocco. An increasing demand results in the creation or expansion of several production units (cement, brick … throughout the country. These materials, produced in large tonnages, are likely to contain some industrial waste capable of causing environmental problems. This

    Rhodobacter sphaeroides O.U. 001 (concentration of inoculum-0.36 g dry wt/l) and brewery wastewaters were applied in photobiogeneration of hydrogen under illumination of 116 W/m{sup 2}. The best results were obtained with filtered wastewaters sterilized at 120 C for 20 min and maximal concentration of waste in medium equal 10% v/v. The main product in generated biogas was hydrogen (90%). After sterilization the amount of generated hydrogen was tripled (from 0.76 to 2.2 l H{sub 2}/l medium), whereas waste concentration of 10% v/v resulted in the best substrate yield (0.22 l H{sub 2}/l of waste). Under these conditions the amount of generated hydrogen was 2.24 l H{sub 2}/l medium and light conversion efficiency reached value of 1.7%. The modified Gompertz equations served in modeling of the kinetics of the studied process. (author)

    Des enregistrements continus d'activité locomotrice ont été effectués sur des souris mâles isolées des lignées Balb/c et C57bl/6, vivant en cages d'élevage ou en milieu semi- naturel. Les résultats montrent que les différences entre ces deux situations ne sont pas perçues de la même façon par les animaux des deux lign'ees: alors qu'en cages d'élevage les souris des deux lignées experiment la même quantité totale d'activaté, en milieu semi-naturel les souris Balb/c sont plus actives que les C57bl/6. En outre, l≐s différences observées entre les lignées pour la repartition de l'activité au cours du nycthèmere s'inversent lorsque l'on passe d'une situation à l'autre. L'étude de la variabilité fait aparaître une dispersion plus grande des performances dans la lignée C57bl/6 en cages d'élevage, alors qu'en milieu semi-naturel la dispersion est plus chez Bal/c.

    Full Text Available Des procédés par plasmas alternatifs au procédé Claus sont proposés pour produire de l'hydrogène et récupérer du soufre à partir des gaz contenant une forte teneur en H2S. Quand la teneur en H2S est moins importante, des techniques plasma peuvent également être utiles pour assister certains étages du procédé classique Claus ou réaliser ce procédé pour des gaz non conventionnels. Les tests allant jusqu'à l'échelle industrielle sont menés dans divers réacteurs à plasmas et les résultats encourageants rapportés de la littérature et de la recherche propre laissent envisager des prochaines applications. Plasma assisted processes are proposed to act as an alternative to the Claus process in order to recover hydrogen and sulphur from high H2S gases. For less concentrated gases plasma techniques may also be inserted into classical Claus plant or may allow treatment of non conventional gases. Up to industrial scale tests are performed using different plasma reactors. The literature-based results as well as our own ones make the future applications quite optimistic.

    Full Text Available Kinship-related prohibitions such as the “in-law” avoidance are a defining feature of the nomadic foraging way of life of the Semang, northern Aslian speakers of peninsular Malaysia. With the stress of the recent Islamic assimilation policy and the changing base of subsistence, however, some Kensiw, a Semang group in Kedah, are feeling that the rules against cəmam or “improper sexual behaviour between relatives” may be contrary to the maintenance of their identity and moving toward a more inclusive identity of the peninsular-wide “Orang Asli”.Les interdictions liées à la parenté comme celle concernant les parents par alliance sont un trait caractéristique du mode de vie des Semang, des locuteurs septentrionaux d’une langue asli de la péninsule malaise. Toutefois, avec le stress récent dû à la politique d’islamisation et le changement de leur base alimentaire, quelques Kensiw, un groupe de Semang de Kedah, ont le sentiment que les règles s’opposant au cəmam ou « comportement sexuel impropre entre parents » pourrait être contraire au maintien de leur identité et sont en train de se rapprocher d’une identité plus inclusive de l’ensemble des « Orang Asli » de la péninsule.

    Full Text Available Le Fonds Marcel-Griaule, un objet de recherche à partager ou un patrimoine à restituer ? L’ouverture du fonds Griaule aux chercheurs des sociétés ou des régions observées aurait un double effet bénéfique sur la recherche : elle permettrait une meilleure compréhension des données archivées, notamment grâce à la prise en compte du poids des informateurs ou du contexte local dans la production de ces données ; mais elle permettrait également à ces chercheurs d’interroger eux-mêmes leur histoire et leur culture, en exploitant les photographies et les écrits de ce fonds. Produites à l’origine grâce à une collaboration entre des chercheurs étrangers et leurs hôtes ou leurs informateurs locaux, les archives ethnographiques ne sont pas tant un patrimoine à restituer qu’un objet de recherche ou une source d’informations à partager. Analysées et exploitées en commun, ou selon des points de vue complémentaires, elles échapperaient ainsi à toute tentative d’appropriation. Une telle démarche aurait donc l’avantage de désamorcer les enjeux politiques ou patrimoniaux autour de ces documents ethnographiques qui, en tout état de cause, ne doivent jamais être confondus avec les archives des sociétés étudiées.The Marcel-Griaule Archive: a research to be shared or an heritage to be returned? Making the Griaule collection available to researchers of the societies or regions observed would have a doubly beneficial effect on research – it would allow a better comprehension of archived data, especially by taking into account the significance of informants or the local context in producing this data – and it would also allow researchers to examine for themselves their history and culture, by using the photographs and writings in this collection. Originally produced thanks to collaboration between foreign researchers and their hosts or local informants, the ethnographical archives are not so much a heritage to be

    The most important carriers of radioactive contamination of man are the whole of foodstuffs and not only ingested water or inhaled air. That is the reason why, in accordance with the spirit of the recent recommendations of the ICRP, it is proposed to substitute the idea of maximum levels of contamination of water to the MPC. In the case of aquatic food chains (aquatic organisms and irrigated foodstuffs), the knowledge of the ingested quantities and of the concentration factors food/water permit to determinate these maximum levels, or to find out a linear relation between the maximum levels in the case of two primary carriers of contamination (continental and sea waters). The notion of critical food-consumption, critical radioelements and formula of waste disposal are considered in the same way, taking care to attach the greatest possible importance to local situations. (authors) [French] Les vecteurs essentiels de la contamination radioactive de l'homme sont les aliments dans leur ensemble, et non seulement l'eau ingeree ou l'air inhale. C'est pourquoi, en accord avec l'esprit des recentes recommandations de la C.I.P.R., il est propose de substituer aux CMA la notion de niveaux limites de contamination des eaux. Dans le cas des chaines alimentaires aquatiques (organismes aquatiques et aliments irrigues), la connaissance des quantites ingerees et celle des facteurs de concentration aliments/eau permettent de determiner ces niveaux limites dans le cas de deux vecteurs primaires de contamination (eaux continentales et eaux oceaniques). Les notions de regime alimentaire critique, de radioelement critique et de formule de rejets sont envisagees, dans le meme esprit, avec le souci de tenir compte le plus possible des situations locales.

  14. La rhétorique des slogans publicitaires russes postsoviétiques : tradition ou innovation ?

    2013-09-01

    Full Text Available Résumé : L'objectif principal de la publicité en général et du slogan en particulier est de produire un certain effet sur le destinataire final: le consommateur potentiel doit mémoriser le slogan qui est associé à tel ou tel produit ou service et toute la gamme des émotions que ces derniers doivent susciter. Dans la plupart des cas, ce sont les moyens stylistiques qui assurent la mémorisation du slogan et ainsi produisent un effet sur le consommateur. Dans ce contexte, il serait intéressant de savoir si ces moyens ont changé depuis l'époque soviétique. Pour cela, il faut identifier les tropes employés aux deux grandes périodes étudiées (contemporaine et soviétique, voir quels sont les plus fréquents pour chacune d'elles, et pour quelle(s raison(s, pour comprendre au final ce qui pourrait expliquer la fidélité à certains tropes et le recours à de nouvelles figures dans la période récente. Les hypothèses émises dans le présent article se basent sur un corpus de slogans assez important et ne cessant d'augmenter qui inclut les slogans soviétiques du début du XXème siècle, principalement créés lors de la Nouvelle Politique Economique, les slogans des années 30, période de croissance industrielle, et les slogans qui accompagnaient les affiches publicitaires de la période après la guerre, quand, par exemple, V. TRUXACOV, travaillant dans le réseau du Magasin Central, a créé de nombreuses affiches pour des biens de consommations tels que tissus, aspirateurs, téléviseurs, etc. Ce corpus contient également les quelques slogans de la période de stagnation économique sous le règne de L. BREJNEV quand, dans les conditions de pénurie et de déficit, les produits n'avaient pas besoin d'être mis en avant. Tous ces slogans constituent le groupe de slogans soviétiques qui s'avèrent intéressants à comparer aux slogans de l'espace postsoviétique commençant par la publicité des pyramides financières (MMM

    Résumé Question Une de mes patientes m’a demandé si elle pourrait se procurer du lait humain par Internet pour allaiter son nourrisson s’il le fallait. L’usage de lait humain provenant d’une banque de dons est-il plus sécuritaire que son achat en ligne? Réponse L’Organisation mondiale de la Santé et l’American Academy of Pediatrics recommandent d’utiliser des dons de lait humain comme choix à privilégier lorsque le lait maternel n’est pas disponible. Cependant, la Société canadienne de pédiatrie n’approuve pas le partage de lait humain non traité. Le lait humain entreposé dans les banques de lait diffère de celui qu’on peut se procurer par Internet en raison du processus rigoureux de sélection des donneuses, des fréquentes inspections de la qualité, des procédés de transport règlementés et du processus de pasteurisation conforme aux directives établies par l’Agence canadienne d’inspection des aliments. La plupart des échantillons achetés en ligne contiennent des bactéries à gram négatif ou comptent au total plus de 104 unités formant colonies de bactéries aérobiques par millilitre; ils renferment aussi en moyenne au décompte total plus de bactéries aérobiques, de bactéries à gram négatif, de coliformes et de Staphylococcus spp que les échantillons des banques de lait. La croissance de la plupart des espèces de bactéries est associée au nombre de jours en transit, ce qui porte à croire que les conditions de collecte, d’entreposage et de transport sont médiocres pour le lait acheté en ligne.

  2. Faut-il brûler les dictionnaires ? Ou comment les ressources numériques ont révolutionné les recherches en morphologie

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Namer Fiammetta

    2012-07-01

    Full Text Available Pour mener leurs études, les morphologues, et, singulièrement parmi eux, ceux qui traitent du lexique construit, sont pris entre deux tensions : utiliser les données issues des dictionnaires, réputées fiables parce que passées au travers du crible de l’institutionnalisation, ou se fonder sur des données authentiques, produites dans des situations écologiques. Bien qu’inspirant encore de la défiance, le Web devient alors la ressource par excellence. Les ressources numérisées telles que les archives de journaux ou les bases de données de textes littéraires constituent un moyen terme entre ces deux pratiques : elles permettent d’effectuer des recherches basées sur l’usage, tout en offrant la garantie d’une certaine tenue linguistique de la part des scripteurs, la plupart du temps identifiables. Dans cette communication, nous nous demanderons si les dictionnaires méritent la confiance que continuent de leur octroyer les morphologues ou, plus exactement, si une morphologie qui puise ses données dans les seuls dictionnaires peut encore avoir cours au 21e siècle. Pour engager cette discussion, nous commencerons par poser la question de l’existence, pour un lexème construit. Nous exposerons ensuite ce que constitue une morphologie basée sur l’usage, puis donnerons un aperçu des types de recherches que permettent de réaliser les ressources non dictionnairiques. La conclusion sera que, si les dictionnaires continuent d'avoir droit de cité dans la panoplie du morphologue, une morphologie uniquement basée sur les données qu'ils contiennent passerait outre de nombreuses recherches, plus fructueuses les unes que les autres.

  3. Implementation of Enhanced Attenuation at the DOE Mound Site OU-1 Landfill: Accelerating Progress and Reducing Costs

    At the US Department of Energy (DOE), Office of Legacy Management, Mound, Ohio, Site, chlorinated organic contaminants (cVOCs) originating from the former solid-waste landfill have impacted groundwater in Operable Unit 1 (OU-1). The baseline groundwater remedy was groundwater pump and treat (P&T). Since the source materials have been removed from the landfill, the Mound core team, which consists of DOE, US Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA), Ohio EPA, and other stakeholders, is assessing the feasibility of switching from the active P&T remedy to a passive attenuation-based remedy. Toward this end, an enhanced attenuation (EA) strategy based on the creation of structured geochemical zones was developed. This EA strategy addresses the residual areas of elevated cVOCs in soil and groundwater while minimizing the rebound of groundwater concentrations above regulatory targets (e.g., maximum contaminant levels [MCLs]) and avoiding plume expansion while the P&T system is turned off. The EA strategy has improved confidence and reduced risk on the OU-1 groundwater transition path to monitored natural attenuation (MNA). To better evaluate the EA strategy, DOE is conducting a field demonstration to evaluate the use of edible oils to enhance the natural attenuation processes. The field demonstration is designed to determine whether structured geochemical zones can be established that expedite the attenuation of cVOCs in the OU-1 groundwater. The EA approach at OU-1 was designed based on “structured geochemical zones” and relies on groundwater flow through a succession of anaerobic and aerobic zones. The anaerobic zones stimulate relatively rapid degradation of the original solvent source compounds (e.g., cVOCs such as tetrachloroethene [PCE] and trichloroethene [TCE]). The surrounding aerobic areas encourage relatively rapid degradation of daughter products (such as dichloroethene [DCE] and vinyl chloride [VC]) as well as enhanced cometabolism of TCE resulting from

    Full Text Available Cet article est consacré à l’analyse de deux types des dictionnaires bilingues : ceux qui sont composés d’une seule partie (L1→L2 et ceux qui sont composés de deux parties (L1→L2 et L2→ L1. Dans la littérature lexicographique lituanienne ces deux types sont définis comme des dictionnaires « monodi­rectionnels » et « bidirectionnels ». Pourtant par « bidirectionnalité » d’un dictionnaire bilingue on en­tend, en général, son aptitude à servir les deux communautés linguistiques soit en tant que dictionnaire de version, soit en tant que dictionnaire de thème. Dans cet article on propose de réviser ces termes qui sont liés à un certain type de l’utilisateur, mais pas à la structure du dictionnaire. Donc, en parlant des particularités de la structure des dictionnaires bilingues de type L1→L2 ou de type L1→L2 et L2→ L1 il faudrait recourir respectivement aux notions de « dictionnaires monofonctionnels » et de « dic­tionnaires bi-fonctionnels », largement utilisées dans la lexicographie mondiale. D’après certains lexi­cographes, les dictionnaires bilingues généraux sont les dictionnaires bi-fonctionnels par excellence. Mais la situation lexicographique en Lituanie est différente : c’est le dictionnaire monofonctionnel qui est le type dominant – entre 1990–2006 on en compte une cinquantaine contre une trentaine des bi-fonctionnels. Dans cet article on passe en revue de différentes raisons de ce phénomène et l’on formule les problèmes principaux qui devraient être abordés par les lexicographes lituaniens.

    Full Text Available Au cours de ces dernières années, Asment Temara a eu recourt uniquement aux calcaires de l’ancienne carrière (Asment pour la fabrication de son ciment, dont elle utilise environ 80 %. Cependant, avec l’évolution de l’exploitation de la carrière, la teneur moyenne en CaO a chuté, en outre l’usage du crible au niveau du concasseur primaire a conduit à une consommation accrue de calcaire. Cette situation a obligé Asment Temara de lancer une campagne de prospection pour la recherche d’une nouvelle carrière de calcaire dans la banlieue du site principal. Cette quête s’est montrée fructueuse par la découverte d’un nouveau gisement qui est celui de l’oued Cherrat. l’étude de ce gisement nous a permis de distinguer trois lithologies : calcaires francs, calcaires dolomitiques et faciès de transition (calcaires à interlits schisteux. Les données de sondages et la cartographie de surface nous ont permis d’estimer les réserves de ce gisement, qui sont de l’ordre de 22712213 millions de tonnes. Les mélanges réalisés au cours de ce travail nous amène à déduire qu’il s’avère nécessaire d’utiliser le calcaire de l’oued Cherrat pour prolonger la durée de vie de la carrière d’Asment, et de là, satisfaire les besoins du marché. During recent years, Asment Temara had recourse only to the former limestone quarry (Asment for the manufacture of its cement, which it uses about 80%.

Síntese dos dados: Os HR têm elevada prevalência na população adulta, sendo a principal dermatose em idosos. Apresentam-se como pápulas esféricas, de cor vermelho brilhante ou violáceas, não-compressíveis à vitropressão, medindo cerca de 1-5 mm, assintomáticas, de distribuição variada no corpo, sendo encontradas mais freqüentemente no tronco. Ao exame histopatológico apresentam-se como proliferações vasculares, na derme, sob epiderme normal. A etiologia ainda não está completamente esclarecida. Embora usualmente benignos, seu achado pode sugerir associação com doenças sistêmicas. Conclusões: Os HR são dermatoses bastante freqüentes na população adulta, sendo queixa comum em consultas em ambulatório de dermatologia. Seu surgimento costuma ser imperceptível, pois se localiza em locais de difícil visualização, como dorso ou couro cabeludo.

    Full Text Available INTRODUCTION: Concernant l’hydatidose, la localisation splénique vient en 3ème position après le foie et les poumons. En l’absence de traitement médical réellement efficace, l’hydatidose splénique amène souvent à la chirurgie. L’apparition du traitement percutané et la tendance actuellement conservatrice de la chirurgie surtout pour une pathologie bénigne, remettent en cause la splénectomie radicale. METHODES: Notre travail rétrospectif, a porté sur 23 cas d’hydatidose splénique isolés ou multi-viscérale. Le diagnostic reposait principalement sur le couple échographie abdominale et sérologie hydatique. Ces patients ont bénéficié dans leur majorité d’une splénectomie ou d’une résection du dôme saillant du kyste. RESULTATS: La morbidité postopératoire a été plus importante en cas de résection du dôme saillant (une hémorragie d’origine splénique, 3 abcès sur cavité résiduelle et 2 récidives. La mortalité a été nulle. Nous proposons une classification qui permet de stratifier les indications opératoires en fonction du type de kyste hydatique de la rate. CONCLUSION: Le choix entre chirurgie radicale ou conservatrice reste difficile vu les contraintes de chacune, les complications postopératoires respectives et la diversité des situations cliniques.

Ils concernent chaque sujet dans son rapport à l’inconnu de son origine, de son appartenance et de son destin. L’expatriation ne fait que réactualiser cette épreuve de l’inconnu que tout un chacun peut élaborer en fonction de son histoire. Elle nous amène par ailleurs à reconsidérer la difficulté de penser l’articulation entre le sujet et le collectif, entre les processus psychique et le fait culturel.

Les diverses publications qui leur sont consacrées traitent le plus souvent de la combustion de charbons et, beaucoup plus rarement, de l'adaptabilité de ces procédés à des combustibles liquides ou de techniques spécifiques. Les principaux points technico-économiques qui se dégagent sur la désulfuration des combustibles liquides sont donnés dans cet article. Enfin, au-delà des aspects techniques, on notera que la désulfuration des combustibles liquides, et plus particulièrement du fuel lourd, est liée à deux aspects plus politiques : - l'application de normes sur les émissions des installations de combustion (ou les dérogations possibles qui concernent non seulement les oxydes de soufre mais aussi les oxydes d'azote et les particules contenues dans les fumées; - l'avenir des fuels lourds tant sur le plan quantitatif (marché que qualitatif (constitution du pool fuel et spécifîcations. The prospects that new emission standards will be applied to large combustion installations, both in the United States and Western Europe, have given rise to extensive research. The different publications devoted to this research usually deal with coal combustion and more rarely with the suitability of such processes for liquid fuels or specific techniques. The leading technico-economic points involved in the desulfurization of liquid fuels are given in this article. Likewise, over and beyond the technical aspects, it can be seen that the desulfurization of liquid fuels, and more particularly of heavy fuel oil, is linked to two more politicalaspects:(a the application of standards on emissions from combustion installations (or possible derogations concerning not only sulfur oxides but also nitrogen oxides and particles contained in fumes;(b the future of

    Full Text Available Neste artigo, serão discutidas as relações entre o homem, o meio ambiente e a atividade turística, considerando que essa atividade está centrada, principalmente, na exploração dos recursos naturais e culturais de um local, região ou país. A sedução que o turismo exerce nas regiões de economia frágil e detentoras de recursos naturais atrativos induz ao pensamento da atividade como milagrosa para quebrar o círculo vicioso de estagnação da economia e representa a vinda de investimentos externos cada vez maiores. Nesse contexto, a atividade turística põe em movimento milhões de pessoas que procuram mobilizar seu tempo livre anual em viagens turísticas, buscando paisagens diferentes daquelas de seu cotidiano, e exercer atividades não impostas pelo ritmo de trabalho e pelo ambiente opressor dos centros urbanos. Para acompanhar esse ritmo, muitas localidades receptoras, inclusive no Brasil, empreendem uma espécie de corrida desenvolvimentista que não tem como prioridade a proteção da natureza, da cultura ou do bem-estar das comunidades envolvidas, configurando o turismo como destruidor dos lugares que o fazem existir.

    We present high-speed, three-colour photometry of the faint eclipsing cataclysmic variable OU Vir. For the first time in OU Vir, separate eclipses of the white dwarf and bright spot have been observed. We use timings of these eclipses to derive a purely photometric model of the system, obtaining a mass ratio of q = 0.175 +/- 0.025, an inclination of i = 79.2 +/- 0.7 degrees and a disc radius of Rd/a = 0.2315 +/- 0.0150. We separate the white dwarf eclipse from the lightcurve and, by fitting a blackbody spectrum to its flux in each passband, obtain a white dwarf temperature of T = 13900 +/- 600 K and a distance of D = 51 +/- 17 pc. Assuming that the primary obeys the Nauenberg (1972) mass-radius relation for white dwarfs and allowing for temperature effects, we also find a primary mass Mw/Msun = 0.89 +/- 0.20, primary radius Rw/Rsun = 0.0097 +/- 0.0031 and orbital separation a/Rsun = 0.74 +/- 0.05.

    The stationary Gamma-OU processes are recommended to be the volatility of the financial assets. A parametric estimation for the Gamma-OU processes based on the discrete observations is considered in this paper. The estimator of an intensity parameter λ and its convergence result are given, and the simulations show that the estimation is quite accurate. Assuming that the parameter λ is estimated, the maximum likelihood estimation of shape parameter c and scale parameter α, whose likelihood function is not explicitly computable, is considered. By means of the Gaver-Stehfest algorithm, we construct an explicit sequence of approximations to the likelihood function and show that it converges the true (but unkown) one. Maximizing the sequence results in an estimator that converges to the true maximum likelihood estimator and the approximation shares the asymptotic properties of the true maximum likelihood estimator. Some simulation experiments reveal that this method is still quite accurate in most of rational situations for the background of volatility.

    Rhodobacter sphaeroides O.U.001 can produce hydrogen under anaerobic conditions and illumination. The objective of this study was to investigate the performance of an 8 l flat plate solar bioreactor operating in outdoor conditions. Different organic acids were used as carbon sources (malate, lactate and acetate) and olive mill waste water was used as a sole substrate source. The consumption and the production of the organic acids were determined by HPLC. The accumulation of by-products, such as poly-{beta}-hydroxybutyrate (PHB) and carotenoid, throughout the course of hydrogen production was determined. The hydrogen production rate was highest (0.01 l/l/h) when malate was the carbon source. Formate was observed as the fermentation end product. Acetate resulted in low hydrogen gas production and high PHB accumulation. When acetate was used as the carbon source, butyrate was produced as a result of fermentation. Promising amounts of PHB and caretenoid were accumulated during hydrogen production from diluted olive mill wastewater. (author)

    Mediterranean catchments are often characterized by highly variable rainfall inputs and intermittent flows. In comparison to the existing knowledge on their hydrological behaviour, the interactions between flow conditions and pollution levels remain less documented. This study aims at filling that gap through a case study on Oued Fez (Morocco). Oued Fez is an intermittent river located in central-eastern Morocco. It has a 615 km2 catchment 10% of which corresponds to the city of Fez, the 3rd biggest in the kingdom (1.2 M inhabitants). Oued Fes is a tributary of the Sebou River, a major body of great economical importance used for irrigation and freshwater supply. A coupled water quality-water quantity monitoring scheme has been implemented on Oued Fez since 2008. In addition to basic hydrological data, water quality samples are collected at regular intervals at 8 locations where discharge is simultaneously measured using an Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP). Water samples are analysed for different forms of nitrogen (nitrates, nitrites, ammonium and total nitrogen) and phosphorus (soluble reactive phosphorus and total phosphorus) using a photospectrometer (Hach Lange DR 2800 VIS-photometer (Germany). The results of the study indicate that, despite variations in annual rainfall, the catchment's hydrological response is controlled by the urban impervious zones during floods. The rural areas contribute mostly to baseflow during the wet period while non-treated anthropogenic inputs constitute most of the flow during the dry period. This in turn affects the water quality results. Indeed: - during low flow conditions the pollution levels are very high and total nitrogen and total phosphorus concentrations reach 45 mg/l N and 6.5 mg/l P respectively at the most polluted sites. - during average and high flow conditions the pollution levels decrease due to dilution. Total nitrogen and total phosphorus concentrations reach 32 mg/l N and 3.5 mg/l P respectively with

    Oued Fez (one of the Sebou River tributaries - Morocco) allowed us to study and quantify the effect of the lack of wastewater treatment on surface water quality in semi-arid hydrological context. The analysis is based on field data collected from June 2009 to December 2011. Concentration and load patterns of nitrogen, phosphorus and chromium (used in the processing of leather) are compared in stable hydrological conditions during low flow and high flow periods in an eight-location sampling network. The Oued Fez and the Sebou River are characterised by severe pollution downstream from the city of Fez, particularly TN (mainly NH4 and Norg), TP (mainly Ppart) and TCr. The most polluted sites are those directly under the influence of domestic and industrial waste water inputs, particularly tannery effluents. Obviously, the concentrations measured at these locations are above all environmental quality standards. Pollutant loads are very heavy in the Sebou River and can contaminate the river course for kilometres. Moreover, as the water of the Sebou River is used for the irrigation of vegetables, serious problems of public health could arise. A better understanding of contaminant dynamics and self-purifying processes in these rivers will help implement actions and steps aimed at improving water quality in the Sebou River, which is the primary water supply source in Morocco and is used for agricultural and industrials purposes as well as for drinking water.

  13. Geology and hydrocarbon potential of the Oued Mya basin, Algeria

    The Oued Mya hydrocarbon system is located in the Sahara basin. It is one of the best producing basins in Algeria, along with the Ghadames and Illizi basins. The stratigraphic section consists of Paleozoic and Mesozoic, and is about 5000 m thick. This intracratonic basin is limited to the north by the Toughourt saddle, and to the west and east it is flanked by regional arches, Allal-Tilghemt and Amguid-Hassi Messaoud, which culminate in the super giant Hassi Messaoud and Hassi R'mel hydrocarbon accumulations, respectively, producing oil from the Cambrian sands and gas from the Trissic sands. The primary source rock in this basin is lower Silurian shale, with an average thickness of 50 m and a total organic carbon of 6% (14% in some cases). Results of maturation modeling indicate that the lower Silurian source is in the oil window. The Ordovician shales are also source rocks, but in a second order. Clastic reservoirs are in the Trissic sequence, which is mainly fluvial deposits with complex alluvial channels, and the main target in the basin. Clastic reservoirs in the lower Devonian section have a good hydrocarbon potential east of the basin through a southwest-northwest orientation. The Late Trissic-Early Jurassic evaporites that overlie the Triassic clastic interval and extend over the entire Oued Mya basin, are considered to be a super-seal evaporite package, which consists predominantly of anhydrite and halite. For paleozoic targets, a large number of potential seals exist within the stratigraphic column. This super seal does not present oil dismigration possibilities. We can infer that a large amount of the oil generated by the Silurian source rock from the beginning of Cretaceous until now still is not discovered and significantly greater volumes could be trapped within structure closures and mixed or stratigraphic traps related to the fluvial Triassic sandstones, marine Devonian sands, and Cambrian-Ordovician reservoirs.

    The Hong-Ou-Mandel (HOM) effect is a quantum interference effect whereby two indistinguishable photons incident at either side of a balanced beam splitter will be detected together at one output port or the other, but never with one photon at each output port. Such experiments have long been performed in the optical domain, but recent developments have raised the possibility of performing such experiments in the microwave domain, using linear amplifiers and quadrature amplitude detectors instead of photon counting [Bozyigit et al., Nat. Phys. 7, 154-158 (2010)]. Here we determine the signature of HOM interference in a system consisting of two independent circuit QED systems out-coupled into an on-chip microwave beam splitter. We have calculated the beam splitter output intensity auto- and cross-correlations for both trains of pulsed Lorentzian photons, and continuously-driven sources based on photon blockade. The HOM interference is manifest as antibunching in the output intensity cross-correlation. Controllable distinguishability may be introduced via a time delay in the pulsed case, or via a frequency offset in the continuously-driven case. The frequency offset leads to a quantum beat effect. Preliminary experimental results will be discussed.

    Full Text Available Zn-Pb-Fe ores in the Ali ou Daoud deposit (Central High Atlas are found as stratiform levels and as karst fillings in carbonate platforms facies of Bajocian age. Tectonic structures (e.g., synsedimentary faults played a relevant role in the ore emplacement. The dolomitic ore-related host-rock levels are characterized by the presence of kaolinite enrichment in clay levels in amounts directly related to the proportion of the clay minerals. The latter is evidenced by correlation between kaolinite and sulphide contents, suggesting that the installation of kaolinite and mineralisations would result from the same hydrothermal fluid.[Français] Dans les séries sédimentaires carbonatées d’Ali ou Daoud (Haut Atlas Central, les minéralisations à Zn, Pb et Fe en amas stratiformes forment les faciès de remplissage des karsts d’une plateforme carbonatée bajocienne. Le contrôle structural joue un rôle capital dans la localisation du gîte en bordure de plateforme sur des failles synsédimentaires. Dans les niveaux dolomitiques encaissants des minéralisations, les assemblages argileux sont caractérisés par la présence de kaolinite dont la teneur varie parallèlement avec celle du minerai. Ceci suggère que la mise en place de la kaolinite et des minéralisations résulterait du même fluide hydrothermal.

    There is an increasing need to couple environmental and economic considerations within waste management. Consumers and companies alike generate ever more waste. The waste-policy challenges of the future lie in decoupling growth in waste generation from growth in consumption, and in setting priorities for the waste management. This report discusses the criteria for deciding priorities for waste management methods, and questions the current principles of EU waste policies. The basis for the discussion is the so-called waste hierarchy which has dominated the waste policy in the EU since the mid-1970s. The waste hierarchy ranks possible methods of waste management. According to the waste hierarchy, the very best solution is to reduce the amount of waste. After that, reuse is preferred to recycling which, in turn, is preferred to incineration. Disposal at a landfill is the least favourable solution. (BA)

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Eddy Fougier

    2013-01-01

    Full Text Available L’altermondialisme est une notion difficile à cerner. On peut y voir un mouvement de la société civile globale, un mouvement social mondial, le nouveau grand mouvement d’émancipation, le refuge des antilibéraux ou bien encore l’un des symptômes de la renaissance de la critique du capitalisme. Il est néanmoins possible de le définir comme une nébuleuse de mouvements de la société civile qui partagent une même opposition à la « mondialisation libérale » et aspirent à une autre globalisation, cherchant à articuler les actions qu’ils mènent à l’échelon local et national à des enjeux globaux en s’accordant sur le caractère central des forums sociaux. Ces mouvements ont donc pour caractéristique d’établir un même constat sur l’état du monde et de proposer des réformes dans quatre domaines spécifiques : la mise en place d’un nouvel ordre économique global, la sauvegarde des biens communs, l’instauration de nouvelles formes de régulation et de gouvernances globales et la défense d’un véritable développement durable. En définitive, même si l’altermondialisme ne changera vraisemblablement pas la face du monde, il joue néanmoins un rôle important de contre-pouvoir global face aux principales puissances économiques.

Para cada uma delas, caminhos que se bifurcam, vertiginosamente, e redundam sempre num labirinto, tão ao gosto borgiano. Livro-labirinto, rizoma sem início nem fim, em expansão qual o universo.

    Full Text Available Deux ans après le débarquement des troupes françaises en Tunisie, dès 1883, le résident Paul Cambon a nommé un inspecteur général des Ponts et Chaussées à la tête de la direction des Travaux publics du protectorat. Alors que les ingénieurs hydrographes de la Marine se chargent de connaître la bathymétrie du littoral et de dresser les premières cartes marines précises de la région, les ingénieurs des Ponts arpentent le rivage pour définir les meilleurs lieux d'implantation des établissements de signalisation à construire sur les côtes de Tunisie. Quinze ans plus tard, les travaux sont pratiquement achevés après l'allumage des deux feux de Ras Turgoness et de Ras Tina au sommet de deux tours en béton armé, les premières du genre construites au monde. Une telle réussite, aussi précoce, est remarquable à plus d'un titre et il convient de s'intéresser aux modalités qui l'ont promue tout en soulignant qu'à aucun moment les services du Bey ou de la puissance ottomane n'ont été consultés. Pas un marin de la région n'est interrogé, pas une autorité maritime locale n'est sollicitée pour préparer ce plan général d'éclairage et de balisage des côtes tunisiennes, un programme d'action de plus de la politique de grands travaux menés par la République impériale.

    Full Text Available La réforme dite de dévolution (décentralisation, votée en 1997, a entraîné de multiples conséquences et transformations dans la vie politique britannique. Le système traditionnellement unitaire de Westminster s’en est trouvé profondément bouleversé. Pourtant, tandis que de nombreuses études furent menées sur les divers nouveaux aspects d’une Grande-Bretagne dévolue, peu se sont penchées sur les conséquences de cette nouvelle asymétrie constitutionnelle sur l’Angleterre. Lorsque des députés de circonscriptions « celtiques » (en Écosse ou au pays de Galles arrivent à influencer le résultat de votes sur des affaires exclusivement anglaises, certains députés d’Angleterre, à Westminster, ne peuvent que se sentir désarmés face au manque de dispositions constitutionnelles garantissant un statut particulier pour ce territoire. Dès lors, de cette « question anglaise » (« English Question », naîtra toute une nouvelle mouvance autonomiste entièrement dédiée à l’obtention d’un Parlement anglais.Devolution at the end of the 1990s has led to numerous consequences and transformations in British politics. The traditional and centralised Westminster system has been turned upside down, and many studies have been carried out on the various aspects of this new “devolved Britain”.Yet, few have paid attention to the English case. However, the constitutional asymmetry thus created has indeed also affected England. When Celtic MPs succeed to influence the outcome of votes on exclusively English matters, one can realise that there is no such thing as an English government. Therefore, some English MPs have felt the need to ask for an option of “English Votes on English Laws”. This article tries to demonstrate that a feeling of “resentment” emerges from this situation and leads to the birth of a new “English” nationalism, entirely dedicated to obtaining an English Parliament.

    Full Text Available Environmental issues began to be introduced more frequently in corporate business. As for the supply chain, Green Supply Chain Management (GSCM emerges as a new approach to corporate responsibility towards the environment. This article aims to analyze the diffusion of the GSCM concept and practices in the Brazilian scenario. To do that, we conducted interviews with experts on the subject of the supply chain in the area of Management in Brazil. The results show that the reasons for the slow development of the concept may relate to characteristics of the domestic market, corporate focus on internal aspects, lack of strict legislation, and low consumer pressure. Experts notice, however, good prospects for the future of discussions on the subject in the Country, due to the National Solid Waste Policy, pressure from the international market, and the search for environmental certification. This study sought to foster further discussions on GSCM in Brazil.

    2012-01-01

    Full Text Available Cet article, issu d’une étude menée au sein du Groupe de Recherches Matérialistes, vise à critiquer la matrice idéologique neocolonialiste du célèbre et controversé discours que Nicolas Sarkozy tint à Dakar en 2007. Les thèses de l’ancien Président de la République Française sont d’emblée reconduites aux stéréotypes colonialistes, puis déconstruites à partir de l’invitation à revenir sur cette page de l’histoire formulée par Makhili Gassama, ancien conseilleur de Senghor. Tout en reconnaissant la complicité d’une grosse partie des politiciens africains dans le partage et saccage de leur continent et dans les guerres qui les traversent, l’article veut contrecarrer le discours de Sarkozy par les paroles de trois représentants les plus significatifs du panafricanisme: Kwame Nkrumah, Patrice Lumumba et Thomas Sankara. Ces trois hommes politiques ont dénoncé avec fermeté les intérêts économiques néocoloniaux qui empêchent une véritable indépendance de l’Afrique. Il s’agit en outre de souligner que l’oblitération et le refoulement des souffrances provoquées par la colonisation au sein des pays de l’occident sont l’indice de l’acceptation par la majorité de leurs populations de l’état des choses en Afrique, qui est ainsi, en quelque sorte, naturalisé. Cette acceptation tacite constitue une condition fondamentale de la reproduction quotidienne du dispositif pacificateur de domination au sein du monde développé. Les maux de l’Afrique trouvent leur cause alors moins dans une attitude de l’homme africain que dans un système de domination économique et idéologique assuré par les institutions internationales tels que l’ONU, la Banque mondiale ou le FMI.

    2010-09-01

    Full Text Available La transcription et l’étude des manuscrits préparatoires de Salammbô a permis de retracer la genèse du personnage féminin, en mettant en valeur son aventure personnelle. Les passages inédits, les marges et écritures interlinéaires apportent des éléments précieux pour construire le roman d’amour de l’héroïne, et lui donner une tonalité plus érotique, avant que Flaubert ne supprime, transforme ou masque habilement ces traces éphémères. Afin que les lignes soient plus nettes, ma recherche privilégie le point de vue de Salammbô, pour autant qu’on puisse connaître cette figure énigmatique. En laissant de côté, volontairement, les problèmes primordiaux du roman, la guerre historique de Carthage, la lutte mythique entre Tanit et Moloch, la grande Histoire et la mythologie, les batailles et les massacres, la lumière se concentre sur l’aventure sentimentale, absolument nécessaire dans un roman historique, l’auteur le sait. L’évocation du milieu social de la fille du suffète Hamilcar, l’analyse de son psychisme, de ses désirs, de ses rêves et de ses croyances apportent un éclairage sur sa vie de femme. L’examen d’un inédit comme les pages consacrées à la danseuse montre la volonté du romancier de créer un personnage séduisant et actif. Devant les guerriers a lieu l’« épiphanie », caractéristique des héros : le chant lyrique et la danse ésotérique en sont les signes manifestes. Après la rencontre, Salammbô et Mâtho, en proie au désir amoureux, se cherchent, se fuient et rêvent l’un de l’autre. Un inédit rapporte le songe de la jeune femme.

    Full Text Available La sociologie et le journalisme, comme disciplines de factualisation du monde social (c’est-à-dire de transformation d’un réel continu en une série discontinue de faits susceptibles d’analyse causale et d’interprétation, présentent de nombreux points de convergence. Elles partagent certaines méthodes comme celle de l’entretien et ont connu des périodes d’échanges intenses dans certains pays comme les États-Unis. Il serait absurde de dire que sociologues et journalistes se ressemblent toujours. En revanche il n’est pas absurde de noter qu’un sociologue et un journaliste peuvent plus se ressembler dans leur façon de construire, de collecter et d’analyser des faits que deux sociologues entre eux ou deux journalistes entre eux. Malgré cela les sociologues partagent souvent de tenaces préjugés quant aux journalistes. Dans cet article on examine ces préjugés en relation aux deux principales formes prises par la « panique morale » diffuse qui s’est emparée des sociétés modernes à l’âge des médias de masse : la peur de l’imitation à la fin du XIXe siècle et la peur de la massification au milieu du XXe siècle. Le rejet par Émile Durkheim de l’idée que les journaux puissent avoir un rôle dans les phénomènes de suicide autour de 1895 et le rejet par Pierre Bourdieu et Jean-Claude Passeron de l’analyse des communications de masse au début des années 1960 servent de cas d’étude. En adoptant une telle stratégie de rupture, que nous assimilons à une forme de « boundary work », les sociologues prennent le risque d’alimenter la panique morale dont sont victimes les journalistes au lieu de la réduire, de rester au niveau du « trouble » personnel provoqué par les médias sans aller vers la construction d’un « problème » social à propos des médias. As factualization disciplines of the social world (in that they transform a continuous reality into a discontinuous series of facts open

    Solid waste management is as old as human civilization, although only considered an engineering discipline for about one century. The change from the previous focus on public cleansing of the cities to modern waste management was primarily driven by industrialization, which introduced new materials...... waste management, including issues as waste definition, problems associated with waste, waste management criteria and approaches to waste management. Later chapters introduce aspects of engineering (Chapter 1.2), economics (Chapter 1.3) and regulation (Chapter 1.4)....

    Municipal solid waste (MSW) is a source of biomass material that can be utilized for bioenergy production with minimal additional inputs. MSW resources include mixed commercial and residential garbage such as yard trimmings, paper and paperboard, plastics, rubber, leather, textiles, and food wastes. Waste resources such as landfill gas, mill residues, and waste grease are already being utilized for cost-effective renewable energy generation. MSW for bioenergy also represents an opportunity to divert greater volumes of residential and commercial waste from landfills.

Encore peu d'études, notamment dans le domaine francophone, ont examiné l'influence de ces outils sur l'apprentissage des langues, même si certains résultats d'ordre ergonomique commencent à prendre assise. Dans les cédéroms d'apprentissage de langue étrangère, les escamots sont essentiellement des escamots d'aide, destinés à assister l'apprenant dans la réalisation de tâches d'apprentissage ou de navigation. En ce sens, l'appréciation subjective de ces outils par les apprenants constitue un facteur non négligeable dans le processus d'utilisation du didacticiel. Après avoir examiné la littérature concernée, nous avons donc réalisé une première enquête préliminaire, en favorisant l'aspect quantitatif, avec un échantillon d'apprenants vaste et non homogène. Les résultats de cette enquête semblent indiquer que les apprenants perçoivent effectivement et plutôt positivement ces escamots, ce qui invite à mettre en place une étude précise, destinée à observer si l'utilisation et le bénéfice effectifs de ces dispositifs correspondent ou non à cette perception.When we look into multimedia language tools, we observe that pop-up windows (i.e. those which appear and disappear according to the learner's needs stand out as specific electronic ploys, pertaining both to hypertext and interactivity.

    Full Text Available L’indétermination qui entoure le terme de « Palestine », provoquée notamment par la disparition de son référent géographique depuis la création de l’État d’Israël, a généré une multitude de représentations concurrentes qui ont fait de ce terme un écran. Ce dernier révèle la complexité des enjeux géopolitiques qui s’y cristallisent, mais rend extrêmement difficile la formulation d’un récit et d’une représentation palestiniens propres. Travailler sur la production cinématographique palestinienne revient à s’interroger sur la manière dont les cinéastes composent avec les multiples représentations de leur terre et de son peuple telles qu’elles sont produites par l’Autre, qu’il soit Israélien ou occidental. Cet article s’appuie sur l’un des dispositifs les plus convaincants de cette production : dans Port of Memory [2009], Kamal Aljafari s’empare de séquences de films israélien et hollywoodien réalisés à Jaffa dans les années 1970 et 1980 qui en ont relégué sa présence palestinienne hors-cadre. Interrogeant cette représentation mutilée du lieu, il propose de rectifier ces images par les moyens du cinéma, faisant de la mémoire visuelle de l’Autre le lieu de son expression artistique et politique.

    Since several years, the European utilities (public service companies) have started a movement of broadening of their offer. They now encompass the overall domain of collective services (mainly electricity, natural gas, wastes and water) to propose global offers. The European utilities also go deeper in their range of offers with the management of fluxes (fluid supplies), of services (energy) and the externalization of infrastructures (cogeneration unit, waste water treatment plants, etc..). The multi-utilities model (association of at least 2 collective services inside a same portfolio of activities) has become a standard. This strategic evolution, implemented since several years in Europe, has been possible thanks to regulation changes: opening of gas and electricity markets to competition, increase of environmental standard requirements, delegation of services. If the multi-utilities concept appears as attractive, several questions remain unanswered: what are the real synergies between collective service activities? Is the multi-utilities model viable? How to finance such a model? How to construct and commercialize global offers? What are the commercial and financial results of the multi-utilities model? What are the alternatives to this model? Which strategic future to the European utilities? This study makes a precise status of the European markets of collective services. It analyzes the strategy of the European groups which have adopted the multi-utilities model and shows the advantages and limits of this strategic model. The study includes an analysis of the financial performances of the 20 main European groups which allows to foresee two scenarios of mid-term evolution for this sector. (J.S.)

  6. Wasted waters.

    Niemczynowicz, J

    1996-11-01

    This article presents the increasing mismanagement of water as a result of increasing delivery of water volume, water pollution, and water wasting. One example of water mismanagement is irrigation, through which 67% of water is withdrawn from the hydrological cycle. In addition, reports from European communities reveal that pesticides from agriculture worsen the existing underground pollution. Furthermore, a 25% drop in land productivity was observed in Africa due to erosion, salinization, water logging, and desertification. Also, 23% of withdrawn water goes to industries, which are the major polluters. Since 1900 about 250,000 tons of cadmium have been produced worldwide, which eventually enter and harm the aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems. Moreover, high mercury levels were observed in Malaysia's Kelang River in the late 1980s, and river pollution in Thailand and Malaysia is recorded to be 30-100 times higher than accepted levels. Aside from that, the human race must also understand that there is a connection between water scarcity and water quality. When there is water pollution, it is expected that many people will suffer diarrheal diseases and intestinal parasite infections, which will further increase the mortality rate to 3.3 million per year. Realizing the severity of the problem, it is suggested that the human race must learn to recycle water like stormwater to prevent scarcity with drinking water.

    An extensive spatial survey was conducted on trace metal content in stream sediments from Oued El Maadene basin, northern Tunisia. Our objectives were to evaluate the level of trace metal pollution and associated ecological risk and identify the major sources of metal pollution. A total of 116 stream sediment samples were collected and analysed for total As, Cd, Cr, Cu, Ni, Pb, V, Zn, and Zr concentrations. The results showed that concentrations of Cr, Ni, V, and Zr were close to natural levels. In contrast, As, Cd, Cu, Pb, and Zn had elevated concentrations and enrichment factors compared to other contaminated regions in northern Tunisia. Ecological risk to aquatic ecosystems was highlighted in most areas. Principal component analysis showed that Cr, Ni, V, and Zr mainly derived from local soil and bedrock weathering, whilst As, Cd, Pb, and Zn originated from mining wastes. Trace metals could be dispersed downstream of tailings, possibly due to surface runoff during the short rainy season. Surprisingly, Cu, and to a lesser extent As, originated from agricultural activities, related to application of Cu-based fungicides in former vineyards and orchards. This study showed that, despite the complete cessation of mining activities several decades ago, metal pollution still impacts the local environment. This large pollution, however, did not mask other additional sources, such as local agricultural applications of fungicides.

From the end of nuclear tests, the Cea constructions and installations, the most susceptible to be contaminated have been ruined without exterior witness. Nobody knows if the usual procedures of decontamination have been observed. About 15% of materials from he Moruroa base have been distributed as gifts to the local communities in french Polynesia. other materials have been transferred or sold. The observatory of French nuclear weapons estimates the cost of the closing of the French Polynesia test sites to about 15 milliards of Francs, including the compensations paid to the Polynesian government during 10 yeas, so be it hundred times the cost announced by the militaries in 1998. The observatory of French nuclear weapons estimates that the real assessment of radioactive waste being on Moruroa and Fangataufa atolls has not been completely made by the experts of IAEA. This assessment is still to make. The observatory of French nuclear weapons notices that the Moruroa and Fangataufa atolls stay under military status. It recommends that these atolls be reintegrated to the Polynesian land patrimony in order to allow independent expertise. (N.C.)

Le heurt de ces interprétations révèle la profonde ambiguïté d’un désir que le roman choisit de ne jamais fixer. L’examen de l’excipit est intéressant dans la mesure où s’y trouve activée cette indécision, selon des modalités particulières. Sur sa limite, en effet, le désir amoureux, que le roman a préalablement travaillé selon les deux axes antagonistes du platonisme ou de la chair, exacerbe et fond ces aspects. Se construit alors, fugacement, une représentation du désir échappant à l’alternative entre satisfaction et insatisfaction, pour apparaître comme énergie et tension configuratrice trouvant une résolution.- En somme, « n’importe », puisque, in extremis, quelque chose a lieu.The Éducation sentimentale has led to conflicting interpretations, not only in the 20th Century, between the old psychological and idealistic criticism and textual criticism limited to strict literalness, but also when the novel was published.  Some, but very few, were sensible to the subtle and bitter irony that strips desire and reveals its essential inactivity, while others, the majority, stigmatized its widely spread covetousness.  The clash of these interpretations reveals the deep ambiguity of a desire that the novel chooses never to pin down.  A study of the pleading is interesting in so far as it is where this indecision is activated. On this boundary the amorous desire is shown to be strangely disturbing compared with

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.

    Disposal fees for mixed waste at proposed commercial disposal sites have been estimated to be $15,000 to $40,000 per cubit foot. If such high disposal fees are imposed, generators may be willing to apply extraordinary treatment or regulatory approaches to properly dispose of their mixed waste. This paper explores the feasibility of several waste management scenarios and attempts to answer the question: Can mixed waste be managed out of existence? Existing data on commercially generated mixed waste streams are used to identify the realm of mixed waste known to be generated. Each waste stream is evaluated from both a regulatory and technical perspective in order to convert the waste into a strictly low-level radioactive or a hazardous waste. Alternative regulatory approaches evaluated in this paper include a delisting petition, no migration petition, and a treatability variance. For each waste stream, potentially available treatment options are identified that could lead to these variances. Waste minimization methodology and storage for decay are also considered. Economic feasibility of each option is discussed broadly.

  4. Gas physical conditions and kinematics of the giant outflow Ou4

    Context. The recently discovered bipolar outflow Ou4 has a projected size of more than one degree in the plane of the sky. It is apparently centred on the young stellar cluster - whose most massive representative is the triple system HR 8119 - inside the H ii region Sh 2-129. The driving source, the nature, and the distance of Ou4 are not known. Aims: The basic properties of Ou4 and its environment are investigated to shed light on the origin of this remarkable outflow. Methods: Deep narrow-band imagery of the whole nebula at arcsecond resolution was obtained to study the details of its morphology. Long-slit spectroscopy of the bipolar lobe tips was secured to determine the gas ionisation mechanism, physical conditions, and line-of-sight velocities. An estimate of the proper motions at the tip of the south lobe using archival plate images was attempted. The existing multi-wavelength data for Sh 2-129 and HR 8119 were also comprehensively reviewed. Results: The observed morphology of Ou4, its emission-line spatial distribution, line flux ratios, and the kinematic modelling developed adopting a bow-shock parabolic geometry, illustrate the expansion of a shock-excited fast collimated outflow. The observed radial velocities of Ou4 and its reddening are consistent with those of Sh 2-129 and HR 8119. The improved determination of the distance to HR 8119 (composed of two B0 V and one B0.5 V stars) and Sh 2-129 is 712 pc. We identify in WISE images at 22 μm an emission bubble of 5' radius (1 pc at the distance above) emitted by hot (107 K) dust grains, located inside the central part of Ou4 and corresponding to several [O iii] emission features of Ou4. Conclusions: The apparent position of Ou4 and the properties studied in this work are consistent with the hypothesis that Ou4 is located inside the Sh 2-129 H ii region, suggesting that it was launched some 90 000 yr ago by HR 8119. The outflow total kinetic energy is estimated to be ≈4 × 1047 ergs. However, we cannot

    In the NUCEF, the researches on criticality safety have been performed at two critical experiment facilities, STACY and TRACY in addition to the researches on fuel cycle such as advanced reprocessing and partitioning in alpha-gamma concrete cells and glove boxes. Many kinds of radioactive wastes have been generated through the research activities. Furthermore, the waste treatment itself may produce some secondary wastes. In addition, the separation and purification of plutonium of several tens-kg from MOX powder are scheduled in order to supply plutonium nitrate solution fuel for critical experiments at STACY. A large amount of wastes containing plutonium and americium will be generated from the plutonium fuel treatment. From the viewpoint of safety, the proper waste management is one of important works in NUCEF. Many efforts, therefore, have been made for the development of advanced waste treatment techniques to improve the waste management in NUCEF. Especially the reduction of alpha-contaminated wastes is a major interest. For example, the separation of americium is planned from the liquid waste evolved alter plutonium purification by application of tannin gel as an adsorbent of actinide elements. The waste management and the relating technological development in NUCEF are briefly described in this paper. (authors)

    Full Text Available La philanthropie semble avoir en Asie suscité un net engouement ces dernières décennies. En Thaïlande toutefois, ces largesses financières à l’égard des œuvres du bouddhisme ou des fondations patronnées par la famille royale ne sont pas toujours l’illustration d’un total désintéressement. En effet, en contrepartie de cette générosité bien orientée, le donateur peut espérer recevoir – voire réclamer – une des multiples décorations officiellement attribuées par le souverain. Lorsque le donateur est une donatrice, certaines médailles donnent droit à des titres placés dorénavant devant le prénom qui ont pour effet de distinguer une nouvelle noblesse. Cette ferveur pour les décorations a pu entraîner dans le passé des phénomènes de corruption de la part de hauts responsables de monastères bouddhiques habilités à délivrer des certificats de donations. Au lieu de réelle philanthropie ou même d’évergétisme à la mode antique, c’est bien de course aux honneurs ou philotimie qu’il convient ici de parler.We can at times talk of a craze for philanthropy in Asia. However, in Thailand, that financial liberality for Buddhism charitable works or the plethora of foundations patronized by members of the royal family are not always a proof a perfect unselfishness. Actually, in return for this well connected generosity, the donator expects to receive—or even ask for—one of numerous decorations officially bestowed by the king. Even, in the case of the donator being a woman, some of these medals of higher ranks have for effect that therefore a special title is positioned ahead of the personal name just like if it was to create a new kind of nobility. In the past, that enthusiasm for royal decorations has generated cases of corruption by some high-level monastery hierarchy empowered for the delivery of donation certificates. Instead of true philanthropy or even antic style evergetism, we should talk here of

    The 2004 reporting to the ISAG comprises 394 plants owned by 256 enterprises. In 2003, reports covered 403 plants owned by 273 enterprises. Waste generation in 2004 is compared to targets for 2008 in the government's Waste Strategy 2005-2008. The following summarises waste generation in 2004: 1) In 2004, total reported waste arisings amounted to 13,359,000 tonnes, which is 745,000 tonnes, or 6 per cent, more than in 2003. 2) If amounts of residues from coal-fired power plants are excluded from statistics, waste arisings in 2004 were 12,179,000 tonnes, which is a 9 per cent increase from 2003. 3) If amounts of residues from coal-fired power plants and waste from the building and construction sector are excluded from statistics, total waste generation in 2004 amounted to 7,684,000 tonnes, which is 328,000 tonnes, or 4 per cent, more than in 2002. In other words, there has been an increase in total waste arisings, if residues and waste from building and construction are excluded. Waste from the building and construction sector is more sensitive to economic change than most other waste. 4) The total rate of recycling was 65 per cent. The 2008 target for recycling is 65 per cent. The rate of recycling in 2003 was also 65 per cent. 5) The total amount of waste led to incineration amounted to 26 per cent, plus an additional 1 per cent left in temporary storage to be incinerated at a later time. The 2008 target for incineration is 26 per cent. These are the same percentage figures as applied to incineration and storage in 2003. 6) The total amount of waste led to landfills amounted to 8 per cent, which is one percentage point better than the overall landfill target of a maximum of 9 per cent landfilling in 2008. Also in 2003, 8 per cent of the waste was landfilled. 7) The targets for treatment of waste from individual sectors are still not being met: too little waste from households and the service sector is being recycled, and too much waste from industry is being

    In this research study, the co-composting process of a waste mixture containing strawberry extrudate, fish waste, sewage sludge and bulking agent (SEFW, 190:1:22:90 ratio) was carried out in a dynamic-solid respirometer at pilot scale. The aerobic biodegradability of the mixture was previously ensured in a static-liquid respirometer. The advantages and drawbacks of the SEFW co-composting process were subsequently identified through the determination of respirometric activity and the physical-chemical characterization of the waste, as well as the monitoring of odor emissions. The evolution of the physical-chemical variables showed that pH increased slightly and that the organic matter concentration, expressed as volatile solids (VS, %) or oxidable organic carbon (COXC, %), decreased by around 15% in both cases and by approximately 56% in its biodegradable form (total organic carbon, TOC, %). The low odor emission rate (OER) in the least favorable scenario (the maximum odor generation) during SEFW composting was 1.59 ouE/s, whereas this figure reached 3.52 ouE/s when only the organic fraction of municipal solid waste (OFMSW) was composted. Consequently, the co-composting of SEFW is more favorable in terms of odor emission and permits the simultaneous treatment of different types of waste. Copyright © 2017. Published by Elsevier Ltd.

While waste pickers provide vital services to their communities, their municipalities and the environment – they generally face very difficult working conditions and in many cases have little or no support from local governments. Waste pickers have been organizing themselves into cooperatives, unions and associations and have found that forging solidarity links across continents is an important strategy, and have increased their global networking since the First World Conference of Waste Pickers took place, in 2008, in Bogota, Colombia. Supporting waste pickers is a key element in a people-centered approach to development.Des millions de personnes dans le monde vivent de la collecte, du tri, du recyclage et de la vente de matériaux de valeur mis au rebut. Les ramasseurs de déchets contribuent à la santé publique, diminuent les coûts liés à la gestion des ordures ménagères, et permettent de réduire considérablement les émissions de gaz à effet de serre. Dans de nombreux pays, ils constituent même l’unique forme de ramassage des ordures. Et alors qu’ils rendent des services vitaux à leur communauté, leur municipalité et à l’environnement, ils travaillent généralement dans des conditions très difficiles et bon nombre d’entre eux ne bénéficient d’aucune aide de la part de leur gouvernement local ou d’une aide très faible.

    Waste Inspection Tomography (WIT) provides mobile semi-trailer mounted nondestructive examination (NDE) and assay (NDA) for nuclear waste drum characterization. WIT uses various computed tomography (CT) methods for both NDE and NDA of nuclear waste drums. Low level waste (LLW), transuranic (TRU), and mixed radioactive waste can be inspected and characterized without opening the drums. With externally transmitted x-ray NDE techniques, WIT has the ability to identify high density waste materials like heavy metals, define drum contents in two- and three-dimensional space, quantify free liquid volumes through density and x-ray attenuation coefficient discrimination, and measure drum wall thickness. With waste emitting gamma-ray NDA techniques, WIT can locate gamma emitting radioactive sources in two- and three-dimensional space, identify gamma emitting, isotopic species, identify the external activity levels of emitting gamma-ray sources, correct for waste matrix attenuation, provide internal activity approximations, and provide the data needed for waste classification as LLW or TRU.

  7. Avoidable waste management costs

    This report describes the activity based costing method used to acquire variable (volume dependent or avoidable) waste management cost data for routine operations at Department of Energy (DOE) facilities. Waste volumes from environmental restoration, facility stabilization activities, and legacy waste were specifically excluded from this effort. A core team consisting of Idaho National Engineering Laboratory, Los Alamos National Laboratory, Rocky Flats Environmental Technology Site, and Oak Ridge Reservation developed and piloted the methodology, which can be used to determine avoidable waste management costs. The method developed to gather information was based on activity based costing, which is a common industrial engineering technique. Sites submitted separate flow diagrams that showed the progression of work from activity to activity for each waste type or treatability group. Each activity on a flow diagram was described in a narrative, which detailed the scope of the activity. Labor and material costs based on a unit quantity of waste being processed were then summed to generate a total cost for that flow diagram. Cross-complex values were calculated by determining a weighted average for each waste type or treatability group based on the volume generated. This study will provide DOE and contractors with a better understanding of waste management processes and their associated costs. Other potential benefits include providing cost data for sites to perform consistent cost/benefit analysis of waste minimization and pollution prevention (WMIN/PP) options identified during pollution prevention opportunity assessments and providing a means for prioritizing and allocating limited resources for WMIN/PP.

    The Building 772-F Far-Field Transuranic (TRU) Waste Counting System is used to measure the radionuclide content of waste packages produced at the Central Laboratory Facilities (CLAB). Data from the instrument are entered into one of two Excel spreadsheets. The waste stream associated with the waste package determines which spreadsheet is actually used. The spreadsheets calculate the necessary information required for completion of the Transuranic Waste Characterization Form (OSR 29-90) and the Radioactive Solid Waste Burial Ground Record (OSR 7-375 or OSR 7-375A). In addition, the spreadsheets calculate the associated Low Level Waste (LLW) stream information that potentially could be useful if the waste container is ever downgraded from TRU to LLW. The spreadsheets also have the capability to sum activities from source material added to a waste container after assay. A validation data set for each spreadsheet along with the appropriate results are also presented in this report for spreadsheet verification prior to each use.

    The purpose of this Design Analysis is to develop preliminary design of the waste package transporter used for waste package (WP) transport and related functions in the subsurface repository. This analysis refines the conceptual design that was started in Phase I of the Viability Assessment. This analysis supports the development of a reliable emplacement concept and a retrieval concept for license application design. The scope of this analysis includes the following activities: (1) Assess features of the transporter design and evaluate alternative design solutions for mechanical components. (2) Develop mechanical equipment details for the transporter. (3) Prepare a preliminary structural evaluation for the transporter. (4) Identify and recommend the equipment design for waste package transport and related functions. (5) Investigate transport equipment interface tolerances. This analysis supports the development of the waste package transporter for the transport, emplacement, and retrieval of packaged radioactive waste forms in the subsurface repository. Once the waste containers are closed and accepted, the packaged radioactive waste forms are termed waste packages (WP). This terminology was finalized as this analysis neared completion; therefore, the term disposal container is used in several references (i.e., the System Description Document (SDD)) (Ref. 5.6). In this analysis and the applicable reference documents, the term ''disposal container'' is synonymous with ''waste package''.

    The aim of radioactive and non-radioactive waste management is to protect man and the environment from unacceptable risks. Protection criteria for both should therefore be based on similar considerations. From overall protection criteria, performance criteria for subsystems in waste management can be derived, for example for waste disposal. International developments in this field are summarized. A brief overview of radioactive waste sorts and disposal concepts is given. Currently being implemented are trench disposal and engineered near-surface facilities for low-level wastes. For low-and intermediate-level waste underground facilities are under construction. For high-level waste site selection and investigation is being carried out in several countries. In all countries with nuclear programmes, the predicted performance of waste disposal systems is being assessed in scenario and consequence analyses. The influences of variability and uncertainty of parameter values are increasingly being treated by probabilistic methods. Results of selected performance assessments show that radioactive waste disposal sites can be found and suitable repositories can be designed so that defined radioprotection limits are not exceeded.

    In November of 1979, the Program in Science, Technology and Humanism and the Energy Committee of the Aspen Institute organized a conference on resolving the social, political, and institutional conflicts over the permanent siting of radioactive wastes. This book was written as a result of this conference. The chapters provide a comprehensive and up-to-date overview of the governance issues connected with radioactive waste management as well as a sampling of the diverse views of the interested parties. Chapter 1 looks in depth of radioactive waste management in the United States, with special emphasis on the events of the Carter Administration as well as on the issues with which the Reagen administration must deal. Chapter 2 compares waste management policies and programs among the industralized countries. Chapter 3 examines the factional controversies in the last administration and Congress over nuclear waste issues. Chapter 4 examines the complex legal questions involved in the federal-state conflicts over nuclear waste management. Chapter 5 examines the concept of consultation and concurrence from the perspectives of a host state that is a candidate for a repository and an interested state that has special concerns regarding the demonstration of nuclear waste disposal technology. Chapter 6 examines US and European perspectives concerning public participation in nuclear waste management. Chapter 7 discusses propaganda in the issues. The epilogue attempts to assess the prospects for consensus in the United States on national policies for radioactive waste management. All of the chapter in this book should be interpreted as personal assessments. (DP)

    The landscape of electronic waste, e-waste, management is changing dramatically. Besides a rapidly increasing world population, globalization is driving the demand for products, resulting in rising prices for many materials. Absolute scarcity looms for some special resources such as indium. Used electronic products and recyclable materials are increasingly crisscrossing the globe. This is creating both - opportunities and challenges for e-waste management. This focuses on the current and future trends, technologies and regulations for reusable and recyclable e-waste worldwide.

    In the South of the Mediterranean basin, many rivers are characterized by an alternation of very long dry periods only cut by short flood events. Currently, the socio-economical development of these zones is limited by the water scarcity but also by the poor quality of the water resources. In fact, human activities, generally concentrated in overpopulated cities, generate large quantity of domestic and industrial effluents which are directly rejected in the environment without any treatment. In Morocco, the well known city of Fez illustrates perfectly this situation observed in all the Maghreb countries. During the dry period, the Oued Fez which crosses the city, is only fed by non-treated anthropogenic inputs. Accumulation of pollutants is observed in the river bed sediments. Domestic and industrial effluents (200 000 m3/day) pollute all the down stream water bodies some of which are used for irrigation and other for fresh water supply. During floods, mainly generated by urban runoff, river bed sediments could be remobilized and a significant flush effect could occur. This study aims at characterising and quantifying the pollutant concentrations and fluxes in various points of the Oued Fez hydrological network and assessing its impact on the Sebou River; water resources of this river being considered as national priority in Morocco. Due to the peculiar Mediterranean hydrological regime, specific observation networks are set up to assess the temporal and spatial variability of pollutant fluxes in the river and to rank water and pollutant sources. The sampling sites on the Fez and Sebou oueds are selected based these criteria. A reference station is chosen upstream of the Oued Fez less than 300 metres from the direct anthropic inputs. Water quality is evaluated through nutrients (Total nitrogen, and total phosphorus essentially), heavy metals (essentially chromium) and suspended solids. The results of 4 sampling campaigns indicate that: in terms of nitrogen

    The Hanford Tank Waste Treatment and Immobilization Plant (WTP) is being constructed to treat the 56 million gallons of radioactive waste stored in 177 underground tanks at the Hanford Site. The WTP includes a pretreatment facility to separate the wastes into high-level waste (HLW) and low-activity waste (LAW) fractions for vitrification and disposal. The LAW will be converted to glass for final disposal at the Integrated Disposal Facility (IDF). Cast Stone – a cementitious waste form, has been selected for solidification of this secondary waste stream after treatment in the ETF. The secondary-waste Cast Stone waste form must be acceptable for disposal in the IDF. This secondary waste Cast Stone waste form qualification testing plan outlines the testing of the waste form and immobilization process to demonstrate that the Cast Stone waste form can comply with the disposal requirements. Specifications for the secondary-waste Cast Stone waste form have not been established. For this testing plan, Cast Stone specifications are derived from specifications for the immobilized LAW glass in the WTP contract, the waste acceptance criteria for the IDF, and the waste acceptance criteria in the IDF Permit issued by the State of Washington. This testing plan outlines the testing needed to demonstrate that the waste form can comply with these waste form specifications and acceptance criteria. The testing program must also demonstrate that the immobilization process can be controlled to consistently provide an acceptable waste form product. This testing plan also outlines the testing needed to provide the technical basis for understanding the long-term performance of the waste form in the disposal environment. These waste form performance data are needed to support performance assessment analyses of the long-term environmental impact of the secondary-waste Cast Stone waste form in the IDF

    2015-06-15

    We report the possibility of completely destructive interference of three indistinguishable photons on a three port device providing a generalisation of the well known Hong-Ou-Mandel interference of two indistinguishable photons on a two port device. Our analysis is based on the underlying mathematical framework of SU(3) transformations rather than SU(2) transformations. We show the completely destructive three photon interference for a large range of parameters of the three port device and point out the physical origin of such interference in terms of the contributions from different quantum paths. As each output port can deliver zero to three photons the device generates higher dimensional entanglement. In particular, different forms of entangled states of qudits can be generated depending on the device parameters. Our system is different from a symmetric three port beam splitter which does not exhibit a three photon Hong-Ou-Mandel interference.

    We demonstrate deterministic generation of two distinct collective excitations in one atomic ensemble, and we realize the Hong-Ou-Mandel interference between them. Using Rydberg blockade we create single collective excitations in two different Zeeman levels, and we use stimulated Raman transitions to perform a beam-splitter operation between the excited atomic modes. By converting the atomic excitations into photons, the two-excitation interference is measured by photon coincidence detection with a visibility of 0.89(6). The Hong-Ou-Mandel interference witnesses an entangled NOON state of the collective atomic excitations, and we demonstrate its two times enhanced sensitivity to a magnetic field compared with a single excitation. Our work implements a minimal instance of boson sampling and paves the way for further multimode and multiexcitation studies with collective excitations of atomic ensembles.

    We report on the observation of a high visibility Hong-Ou-Mandel interference of two heralded photons emitted from a spontaneous parametric down conversion~(SPDC) pumped by continuous-wave~(cw) light. A non-degenerate photon pair at 1541~nm and 1580~nm is generated by cw-pumped SPDC through a periodically poled lithium niobate waveguide. The heralded single photon at 1541~nm is prepared by the detection of the photon at 1580~nm. We performed the experiment of the Hong-Ou-Mandel interference between heralded single photons in separated time bins and observed a high visibility interference. All detectors we used are superconducting nanowire single-photon detectors and an overall temporal resolution of the photon detection is estimated as 85 ps, which is sufficiently shorter than the coherence time of the heralded photons.

The framework adopted by the author is the theory and methodology of Axiomatic Functionalism, i.e., a functional semiotic approach developed by Jan W. F. Mulder in association with Sándor G. J. Hervey which is mainly based on linguistic ideas of André Martinet. The analysis focuses on the phonological interpretation of sequences of palatalized labials and [j], nasal diphthongs, and affricates in Polish. The author argues that nasal diphthongs and palatal and retroflex affricates should be interpreted monophonematically, whereas it is both adequate and economical to interpret sequences of palatalized labials and [j] and alveolar affricates as realizations of sequences of two separate phonemes.   Problem un ou deux phonèmes? w języku polskim Niniejszy artykuł poświęcony jest tzw. problemowi un ou deux phonèmes? we współczesnej polszczyźnie.

    Full Text Available Ao longo do século XX, os espaços e horários destinados ao trabalho eram isolados daqueles destinados à vida pessoal, familiar ou ao lazer. Na contemporaneidade, no entanto, tornou-se comum atender telefonemas de trabalho nos mais variados locais fora do horário de expediente e até mesmo nas férias. Uma das razões para esse novo tipo de comportamento é a concessão, pelos empregadores, de celulares com contas pagas aos seus funcionários. A presente pesquisa procurou investigar quais são as reações desses funcionários. Para tanto, foram conduzidas entrevistas de perguntas abertas com ocupantes de cargos de níveis gerenciais em empresas particulares do Estado do Rio de Janeiro. Foi possível constatar uma ambivalência generalizada entre os entrevistados. Por um lado, eles consideram tal prática um “benefício”, porque também podem usar o celular da empresa para assuntos pessoais, o que representa uma boa economia. Por outro lado, no entanto, se ressentem da invasão, não remunerada ou previamente acordada, de seu tempo livre. Alguns chegam mesmo a se referir a essa concessão como um “malefício”, ou, ainda mais radicalmente, como uma nova forma de escravidão.

This study proposes, the estimated daily intake of fluoride from its water distribution and the main food consumed per capita in the region of El-Oued (dates, tea, couscous, lentils, carrots, potatoes, pumpkin ..., which has a significant content of fluoride in their composition. In addition to the arid climatic conditions, the air temperature is very high in summer, leads to a strong human perspiration. This preliminary result leads us to propose a standard fluoride-specific region of El-Oued. The results showed that the majority of water samples and analyzed the main foods of the region of El-Oued is charged fluoride ions and exceed the maximum dose recommended for adults from 0.05 to 0.07 mg / kg / day.

    Ou4 is a recently discovered bipolar outflow with a projected size of more than one degree in the plane of the sky. It is apparently centred on the young stellar cluster -whose most massive representative is the triple system HR8119- inside the HII region Sh 2-129. The driving source, the nature, and the distance of Ou4 are not known. Deep narrow-band imagery of the whole nebula at arcsec resolution was obtained to study its morphology. Long-slit spectroscopy of the tips of the bipolar lobes was secured to determine the gas ionization mechanism, physical conditions, and line-of-sight velocities. An estimate of the proper motions at the tip of the south lobe using archival images is attempted. The existing multi-wavelength data for Sh 2-129 and HR 8119 are also comprehensively reviewed. The morphology of Ou4, its emission-line spatial distribution, line flux ratios, and the kinematic modelling adopting a bow-shock parabolic geometry, illustrate the expansion of a shock-excited fast collimated outflow. The radi...

  13. Celulares pagos por empregadores: “benefício” ou “malefício”?

    Lúcia Cipriano

    Full Text Available Ao longo do século XX, os espaços e horários destinados ao trabalho eram isolados daqueles destinados à vida pessoal, familiar ou ao lazer. Na contemporaneidade, no entanto, tornou-se comum atender telefonemas de trabalho nos mais variados locais fora do horário de expediente e até mesmo nas férias. Uma das razões para esse novo tipo de comportamento é a concessão, pelos empregadores, de celulares com contas pagas aos seus funcionários. A presente pesquisa procurou investigar quais são as reações desses funcionários. Para tanto, foram conduzidas entrevistas de perguntas abertas com ocupantes de cargos de níveis gerenciais em empresas particulares do Estado do Rio de Janeiro. Foi possível constatar uma ambivalência generalizada entre os entrevistados. Por um lado, eles consideram tal prática um “benefício”, porque também podem usar o celular da empresa para assuntos pessoais, o que representa uma boa economia. Por outro lado, no entanto, se ressentem da invasão, não remunerada ou previamente acordada, de seu tempo livre. Alguns chegam mesmo a se referir a essa concessão como um “malefício”, ou, ainda mais radicalmente, como uma nova forma de escravidão.

  14. Lyophilization -Solid Waste Treatment

    Science.gov (United States)

    Litwiller, Eric; Flynn, Michael; Fisher, John; Reinhard, Martin

    2004-01-01

    This paper discusses the development of a solid waste treatment system that has been designed for a Mars transit exploration mission. The technology described is an energy-efficient lyophilization technique that is designed to recover water from spacecraft solid wastes. Candidate wastes include feces, concentrated brines from water processors, and other solid wastes that contain free water. The system is designed to operate as a stand-alone process or to be integrated into the International Space Station Waste Collection System. In the lyophilization process, water in an aqueous waste is frozen and then sublimed, separating the waste into a dried solid material and liquid water. The sublimed water is then condensed in a solid ice phase and then melted to generate a liquid product. In the subject system the waste solids are contained within a 0.2 micron bio-guard bag and after drying are removed from the system and stored in a secondary container. This technology is ideally suited to applications such as the Mars Reference Mission, where water recovery rates approaching 100% are desirable but production of CO2 is not. The system is designed to minimize power consumption through the use of thermoelectric heat pumps. The results of preliminary testing of a prototype system and testing of the final configuration are provided. A mathematical model of the system is also described.

    Reports to the ISAG (Information System for Waste and Recycling) for 2001 cover 402 Danish waste treatment plants owned by 295 enterprises. The total waste generation in 2001 amounted to 12,768,000 tonnes, which is 2% less than in 2000. Reductions are primarily due to the fact that sludge for mineralization is included with a dry matter content of 20% compared to 1,5% in previous statistics. This means that sludge amounts have been reduced by 808,886 tonnes. The overall rate of recycling amounted to 63%, which is 1% less than the overall recycling target of 64% for 2004. Since sludge has a high recycling rate, the reduction in sludge amounts of 808,886 tonnes has also caused the total recycling rate to fall. Waste amounts incinerated accounted for 25%, which is 1% more than the overall target of 24% for incineration in 2004. Waste going to landfill amounted to 10%, which is better than the overall landfill target for 2004 of a maximum of 12% for landfilling. Targets for treatment of waste from the different sectors, however, are still not complied with, since too little waste from households and the service sector is recycled, and too much waste from industry is led to landfill.

  18. Radioactive waste storage issues

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Kunz, Daniel E. [Colorado Christian Univ., Lakewood, CO (United States)

    1994-08-15

    In the United States we generate greater than 500 million tons of toxic waste per year which pose a threat to human health and the environment. Some of the most toxic of these wastes are those that are radioactively contaminated. This thesis explores the need for permanent disposal facilities to isolate radioactive waste materials that are being stored temporarily, and therefore potentially unsafely, at generating facilities. Because of current controversies involving the interstate transfer of toxic waste, more states are restricting the flow of wastes into - their borders with the resultant outcome of requiring the management (storage and disposal) of wastes generated solely within a state`s boundary to remain there. The purpose of this project is to study nuclear waste storage issues and public perceptions of this important matter. Temporary storage at generating facilities is a cause for safety concerns and underscores, the need for the opening of permanent disposal sites. Political controversies and public concern are forcing states to look within their own borders to find solutions to this difficult problem. Permanent disposal or retrievable storage for radioactive waste may become a necessity in the near future in Colorado. Suitable areas that could support - a nuclear storage/disposal site need to be explored to make certain the health, safety and environment of our citizens now, and that of future generations, will be protected.

    The 2003 reporting to the ISAG comprises 403 plants owned by 273 enterprises. In 2002, reports covered 407 plants owned by 296 enterprises. Waste generation in 2003 is compared to targets from 2008 in the government's Waste Strategy 2005-2008. The following can be said to summarise waste generation in 2003: 1) In 2003, total reported waste arisings amounted to 12,835,000 tonnes, which is 270,000 tonnes, or 2 per cent, less than in 2002. 2) If amounts of residues from coal-fired power plants are excluded from statistics, waste arisings in 2003 were 11,597,000 tonnes, which is a 2 per cent increase from 2002. 3) If amounts of residues from coal-fired power plants and waste from the building and construction sector are excluded from statistics, total waste generation in 2003 amounted to 7,814,000 tonnes, which is 19,000 tonnes, or 1 per cent, less than in 2002. In other words, there has been a fall in total waste arisings, if residues and waste from building and construction are excluded. 4) The overall rate of recycling amounted to 66 per cent, which is one percentage point above the overall recycling target of 65 per cent for 2008. In 2002 the total rate of recycling was 64 per cent. 5) The total amount of waste led to incineration amounted to 26 per cent, plus an additional 1 per cent left in temporary storage to be incinerated at a later time. The 2008 target for incineration is 26 per cent. These are the same percentage figures as applied to incineration and storage in 2002. 6) The total amount of waste led to landfills amounted to 8 per cent, which is one percentage point below the overall landfill target of a maximum of 9 per cent landfilling in 2008. In 2002, 9 per cent was led to landfill. 7) The targets for treatment of waste from individual sectors are still not being met: too little waste from households and the service sector is being recycled, and too much waste from industry is being led to landfill.

  5. Medical waste: a minimal hazard.

    Keene, J H

    1991-11-01

    Medical waste is a subset of municipal waste, and regulated medical waste comprises less than 1% of the total municipal waste volume in the United States. As part of the overall waste stream, medical waste does contribute in a relative way to the aesthetic damage of the environment. Likewise, some small portion of the total release of hazardous chemicals and radioactive materials is derived from medical wastes. These comments can be made about any generated waste, regulated or unregulated. Healthcare professionals, including infection control personnel, microbiologists, public health officials, and others, have unsuccessfully argued that there is no evidence that past methods of treatment and disposal of regulated medical waste constitute any public health hazard. Historically, discovery of environmental contamination by toxic chemical disposal has followed assurances that the material was being disposed of in a safe manner. Therefore, a cynical public and its elected officials have demanded proof that the treatment and disposal of medical waste (i.e., infectious waste) do not constitute a public health hazard. Existent studies on municipal waste provide that proof. In order to argue that the results of these municipal waste studies are demonstrative of the minimal potential infectious environmental impact and lack of public health hazard associated with medical waste, we must accept the following: that the pathogens are the same whether they come from the hospital or the community, and that the municipal waste studied contained waste materials we now define as regulated medical waste.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)

    Full Text Available The use of food waste recycling concept can be an interesting option to reduce the use of landfill. This strategy is more environmental friendly, cheap and fast if proper management to treat the food waste is applied. Nowadays, the concept of recycling is not well practice among the community. In this study, vermicomposting is introduced as an alternative of the food waste recycling. Vermicomposting consists of the use of earthworms to break down the food waste. In this vermicomposting treatment, the nightcrawler earthworm are used to treat the food waste. The food will be collected from UTHM cafe. The experiment consist of peat soil as a base, earthworms and the food waste. The pH number and moisture content of each container were controlled at 7.0 to 7.2 and 60 to 80 % to maintain the favorable environment condition for the earthworms. The weight of the sample will be measured in three days time after exposure to the earthworm. The vermicomposting study was taken about two weeks time. After the treatment, the soil sample are tested for nitrogen (N, Phosphorus (P, and Potassium (K concentration. Based on the result obtained, it shows that vermicomposting will reduce the weight of treatment sample and the concentration of N, P, and K for the soil is greater than the chemical fertilizer. Therefore, vermicomposting is a promising  alternative treatment of food waste as it is more ecofriendly.

    Full Text Available Cet article analyse les limites du naturalisme social que Laurence Kaufman et Laurent Cordonier proposent d’adopter dans cette même revue, en critiquant leur plaidoyer pour l’intégration des savoirs des sciences cognitives et des sciences humaines et sociales. Cette critique repose sur la réfutation de trois idées soutenues par les auteurs : 1 la description scientifique des mécanismes cognitifs élémentaires fournit une explication causale des conduites sociales qui doit se substituer à celles des sciences humaines et sociales ; 2 le recours au naturalisme permet de falsifier les préconceptions que ces dernières continuent à entretenir ; 3 le programme de naturalisation de l’esprit n’implique aucune forme de réductionnisme. Cette triple critique permet de rejeter leur appel en faveur d’un modèle intégré de la conduite humaine, en avançant un constat : dans la mesure où on ne sait pas comment combler le hiatus qui sépare les descriptions détaillées du cerveau au travail de l’explication des conduites des individus et de la manière dont ils en assurent la coordination dans le temps même où ils agissent en commun, les sciences humaines et sociales ont peu de choses à aller glaner du côté des sciences cognitives pour améliorer la manière dont elles analysent l’action. C’est que le travail de celles-ci se situe soit au niveau infra-humain du fonctionnement moléculaire, soit au niveau supra-humain de l’évolution ; et que seules les sciences humaines et sociales placent leurs analyses à un niveau simplement humain, en faisant des individus tels qu’ils vivent ensemble la mesure de toutes les choses qui les concernent. Ce qu’elles ne peuvent faire sur un mode naturaliste.Cognitive sciences are not social sciencesThis article examines the limits of the social naturalism proposed by Laurence Kauffman and Laurent Cordonier in this journal by criticizing their plea concerning knowledge integration of cognitive sciences as well as humanities and social sciences. This critic relies upon the rebuttal of the three ideas backed by the authors: 1 the scientific description of cognitive elementary mechanisms gives a causal explanation of social conducts that must substitute itself to the ones of humanities and social sciences; 2 the use of naturalism allows a forgery of preconceived ideas the they continue to maintain; 3 the naturalization of the mind program doesn’t imply forms of reductionism. This triple critic allows a rejection of their appeal in favor of an integrated model of human conduct by putting forward a statement: since we do not know how to fill the gap that divides detailed descriptions of the working brain from the explanations of the individuals’ conducts and the ways in which they coordinate these personal conducts and the public ones, humanities and social sciences have little to gain from the cognitive sciences’ side in order to improve their analyses of action. It is because their work is located either at a subhuman level of molecular functioning or at a superhuman level of evolution; and only humanities and social sciences place their analyses simply at a human level by using humans as they live together as a measure of everything that concerns them. What they cannot do on a naturalist mode.Las ciencias cognitivas no son ciencias sobre la sociedad.Respuesta al artículo de Laurence Kaufman y Laurent Cordonier, « Vers un naturalisme social- Hacia un naturalismo social »En este artículo se analizan los límites del naturalismo social que Laurence Kaufman y Laurent Cordonier adoptan en esta revista, y se critican los argumentos para integrar los conocimientos de las ciencias cognitivas en las ciencias sociales. Esta crítica se basa en la refutación de tres ideas contenidas: 1 la descripción científica de los mecanismos cognitivos elementales suministra una explicación causal de los comportamientos sociales que debe reemplazar el de las ciencias sobre la sociedad; 2 La utilización del naturalismo falsifica las concepciones adquiridas que estas últimas producen; 3 el programa de naturalización de la capacidad de pensar no implica reduccionismo alguno. Esta triple crítica nos permite rechazar la propuesta en favor de un modelo integrado del comportamiento humano y para ello se pone en evidencia que en la medida en que no se sabe cómo suprimir el vacío que divide las descripciones detalladas del cerebro en funcionamiento de la explicación de los comportamientos de las personas y de la manera como se coordinan temporalmente aunque actúen al unísono, las ciencias de la sociedad no pueden perder el tiempo en el terreno de las ciencias cognitivas para mejorar la manera de analizar las cosas. Porque el ámbito de estas últimas se sitúa o bien a nivel de lo infrahumano del funcionamiento molecular, o bien a nivel supra humanó de la evolución y que solo las ciencias sociales sitúan sus análisis a un nivel puramente humano haciendo que los individuos, tal como viven juntos la medida de todas las cosas, cosas que no pueden hacerse a nivel del naturalismo.

    A number of alternative process and waste form options exist for the immobilization of nuclear wastes. Although data exists on the characterization of these alternative waste forms, a straightforward comparison of product properties is difficult, due to the lack of standardized testing procedures. The characterization study described in this report involved the application of the same volatility, mechanical strength and leach tests to ten alternative waste forms, to assess product durability. Bulk property, phase analysis and microstructural examination of the simulated products, whose waste loading varied from 5% to 100% was also conducted. The specific waste forms investigated were as follows: Cold Pressed and Sintered PW-9 Calcine; Hot Pressed PW-9 Calcine; Hot Isostatic Pressed PW-9 Calcine; Cold Pressed and Sintered SPC-5B Supercalcine; Hot Isostatic pressed SPC-5B Supercalcine; Sintered PW-9 and 50% Glass Frit; Glass 76-68; Celsian Glass Ceramic; Type II Portland Cement and 10% PW-9 Calcine; and Type II Portland Cement and 10% SPC-5B Supercalcine. Bulk property data were used to calculate and compare the relative quantities of waste form volume produced at a spent fuel processing rate of 5 metric ton uranium/day. This quantity ranged from 3173 L/day (5280 Kg/day) for 10% SPC-5B supercalcine in cement to 83 L/day (294 Kg/day) for 100% calcine. Mechanical strength, volatility, and leach resistance tests provide data related to waste form durability. Glass, glass-ceramic and supercalcine ranked high in waste form durability where as the 100% PW-9 calcine ranked low. All other materials ranked between these two groupings.

    This Waste Management Plan (WMP) supplements the Remedial Investigation/Feasibility Study (RI/FS) Project WMP and defines the criteria and methods to be used for managing and characterizing waste generated during activities associated with the RI of 23 wells near the Old Hydrofracture Facility (OHF). These wells are within the Waste Area Grouping (WAG) 5 area of contamination (AOC) at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). Field activities for the limited RI of Operable Unit (OU) 3 of WAG 10 will involve sampling and measurement of various environmental media (e.g., liquids and gases). Many of these activities will occur in areas known to be contaminated with radioactive materials or hazardous chemical substances, and it is anticipated that contaminated solid and liquid wastes and noncontaminated wastes will be generated as a result of these activities. On a project-wide basis, handling of these waste materials will be accomplished in accordance with the RI/FS Project WMP and the procedures referenced throughout the plan.

    2009-01-29

    Summary The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is making plans to dispose of 54 million gallons of radioactive tank wastes at the Hanford Site near Richland, Washington. The high-level wastes and low-activity wastes will be vitrified and placed in permanent disposal sites. Processing of the tank wastes will generate secondary wastes, including routine solid wastes and liquid process effluents, and these need to be processed and disposed of also. The Department of Energy Office of Waste Processing sponsored a meeting to develop a roadmap to outline the steps necessary to design the secondary waste forms. Representatives from DOE, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the Washington State Department of Ecology, the Oregon Department of Energy, Nuclear Regulatory Commission, technical experts from the DOE national laboratories, academia, and private consultants convened in Richland, Washington, during the week of July 21-23, 2008, to participate in a workshop to identify the risks and uncertainties associated with the treatment and disposal of the secondary wastes and to develop a roadmap for addressing those risks and uncertainties. This report describes the results of the roadmap meeting in Richland. Processing of the tank wastes will generate secondary wastes, including routine solid wastes and liquid process effluents. The secondary waste roadmap workshop focused on the waste streams that contained the largest fractions of the 129I and 99Tc that the Integrated Disposal Facility risk assessment analyses were showing to have the largest contribution to the estimated IDF disposal impacts to groundwater. Thus, the roadmapping effort was to focus on the scrubber/off-gas treatment liquids with 99Tc to be sent to the Effluent Treatment Facility for treatment and solidification and the silver mordenite and carbon beds with the captured 129I to be packaged and sent to the IDF. At the highest level, the secondary waste roadmap includes elements addressing regulatory and

    Full Text Available Madagascar est l'un des plus importants points chauds (ou hotspots de la biodiversité mondiale. Parmi les nombreux animaux endémiques de l’île, les lémuriens sont les plus emblématiques. Au sein de l’ordre des primates, ils sont l'un des groupes les plus diversifiés. Si leur origine reste mal connue, de nombreuses formes subfossiles éteintes sont attestées pour les derniers 26 000 ans ; les plus récentes datant d'il y a quelques siècles seulement. Ces animaux sont souvent mentionnés dans les récits anciens ou les légendes car leur taille a impressionné les premiers explorateurs et scientifiques. Les causes de leur disparition restent mal connues ou incertaines. On reconnaissait historiquement deux zones de concentration des sites à subfossiles (le Sud-Ouest et le Centre de Madagascar, dont la plupart des espèces sont généralement différentes. Plus récemment (dans les années 80, des subfossiles ont été découverts dans le Nord de l'île ; mais, la région Nord-Ouest en restait pratiquement vierge, et ce, jusqu’en 1997 où des explorations y ont débuté dans le cadre d’une collaboration franco-malgache. Actuellement, 19 sites ont été répertoriés et ont livré de nombreux restes de subfossiles. Une nouvelle espèce éteinte de lémurien a été décrite : Palaeopropithecus kelyus. Il existe aussi de nombreux taxons non-lémuriens (microfaune et macrofaune qui permettent de reconstituer l'histoire de cette faune passée et des paléoenvironnements qui y sont liés. La collaboration équitable établie est aussi une aventure humaine : les différents membres des deux pays ont été impliqués de manière égale dans les activités de terrain, l'étude du matériel, et la diffusion des connaissances. Des expositions ont aussi permis de sensibiliser les nouvelles générations à leur patrimoine géologique et naturel.

    Full Text Available A estimulação cardíaca artificial por meio de marca-passo cardíaco representa uma das alternativas mais promissoras no tratamento das arritmias, entretanto pode ocasionar reações singulares ou complexas, precoces ou tardias. Neste estudo, objetivou-se descrever as evidências científicas sobre o risco de infecção e formação de biofilme associado ao marca-passo cardíaco. Trata-se de um estudo de revisão integrativa da literatura. Totalizaram-se 14 publicações classificadas em três categorias temáticas: diagnóstico (microbiológico e/ou clínico, complicações e terapêutica das infecções. Os Staphylococcus epidermidis e os Staphylococcus aureus foram os microrganismos mais frequentemente isolados. Não foi possível determinar a incidência da infecção associada aos marca-passos, uma vez que os estudos eram em geral de prevalência. Em termos de terapêutica destacou-se a remoção completa dos marca-passos, especialmente nos casos de suspeita de biofilme. Ainda é controverso o uso da profilaxia antibiótica sistêmica na redução da incidência da infecção associada ao implante de marca-passo

    Full Text Available Apesar da freqüente discussão, tanto nos meios acadêmicos quanto nos midiáticos, envolvendo a crise da imagem documental, na esteira da propalada crise da cultura documental como um todo, não há como negar a proliferação de imagens e o incremento de uma produção assumida com esse propósito no universo das relações comunicacionais, seja ele impresso ou digital. Se, no domínio da arte, a ação hegemônica contemporânea consiste na desestabilização figurativa das imagens, do lado das mídias de produção massiva, afirma-se a sua estabilização como condiçãofundante do ato de documentar. Este trabalho não visa abordar as várias concepções de documental, porque parte do pressuposto de que esse aspecto se apresenta como resultado de estratégias figurativo-enunciativas de “fazer crer”, responsáveis por múltiplos regimes de sentido. De suas escolhas e agenciamentos decorrem modalidades interacionais amparadas na mediatez ou imediatez dos processos compreensivos, num sistema de valores condicionantes do ato comunicativo que coloca em evidência as funções prática, cognitiva, afetiva ou fiduciária (calcada em regimes de crençadas mediações simbólicas.

    Full Text Available La collecte et l’analyse de données ne constituent pas des phénomènes récents. Néanmoins, d’importants changements se sont produits dans ce domaine au cours des dernières décades, faisant de la surveillance un outil à part entière des institutions modernes. Cet article analyse la manière dont les technologies de surveillance comme la vidéosurveillance, les banques de données ou encore la cartographie de la criminalité entrent en interaction, au sein des institutions chargées de la lutte contre la délinquance, avec le monopole étatique de la violence légitime. L’étude empirique de deux services de police français (un service dédié à la police des transports ferroviaires et une unité d’enquête composée d’agents issus d’administrations différentes montre que ces technologies sont mises au service d’un ciblage de l’action de police sur des territoires ou des individus identifiés comme « à risque ». Elle tend à relativiser, dans le contexte français, l’hypothèse d’un mode de surveillance qui serait synonyme d’un adoucissement du contrôle social. Elle suggère que l’usage des technologies de surveillance peut aussi bien aider à la relégitimation de moyens de contrôle traditionnels à une époque où la discrétionnarité du travail policier est de plus en plus contestée.Data collection and analysis is not a recent phenomenon.

    Damveld, Herman [Groningen (Netherlands)

    2003-10-01

    In the past years in almost all conferences on storage of nuclear waste, ethics has been considered as an important theme. But what is ethics? We will first give a sketch of this branch of philosophy. We will then give a short explanation of the three principal ethical theories. In the discussion about storage of nuclear waste, the ethical theory of utilitarianism is often implicitly invoked. In this system future generations weigh less heavily than the present generation, so that people of the future are not considered as much as those now living. We reject this form of reasoning. The discussion about nuclear waste is also sometimes pursued from ethical points of departure such as equality and justice. But many loose ends remain in these arguments, which gives rise to the question of whether the production and storage of nuclear waste is responsible.

    Developing a fully operational hazardous waste regulatory system requires at least 10 to 15 years—even in countries with strong legal and bureaucratic institutions, according to a report on "The Evolution of Hazardous Waste Programs," which was funded by Resources for the Future (RFF) and the World Bank's South Asia Environment Group, and issued on June 4.The report, which compares the experiences of how four developed and four developing countries have created hazardous waste programs, indicates that hazardous waste issues usually do not become a pressing environmental issue until after countries have dealt with more direct threats to public health, such as contaminated drinking water and air pollution. The countries examined include Indonesia, Thailand, Germany, and the United States.

    The disposal of nuclear waste has gained attention of the public for decades. Accordingly, nuclear waste has been a prominent issue in natural, engineer and social science for many years. Although bearing risks for todays and future generations hazardous waste in contrast is much less an issue of public concern. In 2011, we conducted a postal survey among Swiss Germans (N = 3.082) to learn more about, how nuclear waste is perceived against hazardous waste. We created a questionnaire with two versions, nuclear waste and hazardous waste, respectively. Each version included an identical part with well-known explanatory factors for risk perception on each of the waste types separately and additional questions directly comparing the two waste types. Results show that basically both waste types are perceived similarly in terms of risk/benefit, emotion, trust, knowledge and responsibility. However, in the direct comparison of the two waste types a complete different pattern can be observed: Respondents perceive nuclear waste as more long-living, more dangerous, less controllable and it, furthermore, creates more negative emotions. On the other hand, respondents feel more responsible for hazardous waste and indicate to have more knowledge about this waste type. Moreover, nuclear waste is perceived as more carefully managed. We conclude that mechanisms driving risk perception are similar for both waste types but an overarching negative image of nuclear waste prevails. We propose that hazardous waste should be given more attention in the public as well as in science which may have implications on further management strategies of hazardous waste.

    In the paper, we study a linear system driven by O-U noise and give a method which is different from the one stated in Europhys. Lett. 40 (1997) 117. We find the same phenomenon of multiplicative stochastic resonance for the response of the system to the signal as the one found in Europhys. Lett. 40 (1997) 117. The merit of our method is that it prevents the complex formulas when making sum from n = 0 to n →∞ as in Europhys. Lett. 40 (1997) 117, which leads to the approximate results of the figures.

    2009-01-01

    Every year almost 45 billion kg of fresh vegetables, fruits, milk, and grain products is lost to waste in the United States. According to the EPA, the disposal of this costs approximately $1 billion. In the United Kingdom, 20 million ton of food waste is produced annually. Every tonne of food waste means 4.5 ton of CO(2) emissions. The food wastes are generated largely by the fruit-and-vegetable/olive oil, fermentation, dairy, meat, and seafood industries. The aim of this chapter is to emphasize existing trends in the food waste processing technologies during the last 15 years. The chapter consists of three major parts, which distinguish recovery of added-value products (the upgrading concept), the food waste treatment technologies as well as the food chain management for sustainable food system development. The aim of the final part is to summarize recent research on user-oriented innovation in the food sector, emphasizing on circular structure of a sustainable economy.

    A barrel gamma scanning unit has been in use at the VAK for the classification of radioactive waste materials since 1998. The unit provides the facility operator with the data required for classification of waste barrels. Once these data have been entered into the AVK data processing system, the radiological status of raw waste as well as pre-treated and processed waste can be tracked from the point of origin to the point at which the waste is delivered to a final storage. Since the barrel gamma scanning unit was commissioned in 1998, approximately 900 barrels have been measured and the relevant data required for classification collected and analyzed. Based on the positive results of experience in the use of the mobile barrel gamma scanning unit, the VAK now offers the classification of barrels as a service to external users. Depending upon waste quantity accumulation, this measurement unit offers facility operators a reliable and time-saving and cost-effective means of identifying and documenting the radioactivity inventory of barrels scheduled for final storage.

    Not all the nuclear waste destined for Yucca Mountain is in the form of spent fuel. Some of it will be radioactive waste generated from the production of nuclear weapons. This so-called defense waste exists mainly as corrosive liquids and sludge in underground tanks. An essential task of the U.S. high-level radioactive waste program is to process these defense wastes into a solid material--called a waste form. An ideal waste form would be extremely durable and unreactive with other repository materials. It would be simple to fabricate remotely so that it could be safely transported to a repository for permanent storage. What's more, the material should be able to tolerate exposure to intense radiation without degradation. And to minimize waste volume, the material must be able to contain high concentrations of radionuclides. The material most likely to be used for immobilization of radioactive waste is glass. Glasses are produced by rapid cooling of high-temperature liquids such that the liquid-like non-periodic structure is preserved at lower temperatures. This rapid cooling does not allow enough time for thermodynamically stable crystalline phases (mineral species) to form. In spite of their thermodynamic instability, glasses can persist for millions of years. An alternate to glass is a ceramic waste form--an assemblage of mineral-like crystalline solids that incorporate radionuclides into their structures. The crystalline phases are thermodynamically stable at the temperature of their synthesis; ceramics therefore tend to be more durable than glasses. Ceramic waste forms are fabricated at temperatures below their melting points and so avoid the danger of handling molten radioactive liquid--a danger that exists with incorporation of waste in glasses. The waste form provides a repository's first line of defense against release of radionuclides. It, along with the canister, is the barrier in the repository over which we have the most control.

    2001-09-01

    This feasibility study report presents a draft design of the Vitrified Waste Interim Storage Facility (VWISF), which is one of three subprojects of the Idaho Waste Vitrification Facilities (IWVF) project. The primary goal of the IWVF project is to design and construct a treatment process system that will vitrify the sodium-bearing waste (SBW) to a final waste form. The project will consist of three subprojects that include the Waste Collection Tanks Facility, the Waste Vitrification Facility (WVF), and the VWISF. The Waste Collection Tanks Facility will provide for waste collection, feed mixing, and surge storage for SBW and newly generated liquid waste from ongoing operations at the Idaho Nuclear Technology and Engineering Center. The WVF will contain the vitrification process that will mix the waste with glass-forming chemicals or frit and turn the waste into glass. The VWISF will provide a shielded storage facility for the glass until the waste can be disposed at either the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant as mixed transuranic waste or at the future national geological repository as high-level waste glass, pending the outcome of a Waste Incidental to Reprocessing determination, which is currently in progress. A secondary goal is to provide a facility that can be easily modified later to accommodate storage of the vitrified high-level waste calcine. The objective of this study was to determine the feasibility of the VWISF, which would be constructed in compliance with applicable federal, state, and local laws. This project supports the Department of Energy’s Environmental Management missions of safely storing and treating radioactive wastes as well as meeting Federal Facility Compliance commitments made to the State of Idaho.

    Materials and methods of making densified waste forms for temperature sensitive waste material, such as nuclear waste, formed with low temperature processing using metallic powder that forms the matrix that encapsulates the temperature sensitive waste material. The densified waste form includes a temperature sensitive waste material in a physically densified matrix, the matrix is a compacted metallic powder. The method for forming the densified waste form includes mixing a metallic powder and a temperature sensitive waste material to form a waste form precursor. The waste form precursor is compacted with sufficient pressure to densify the waste precursor and encapsulate the temperature sensitive waste material in a physically densified matrix.

    The purpose of this waste analysis plan (WAP) is to document waste analysis activities associated with the Waste Encapsulation and Storage Facility (WESF) to comply with Washington Administrative Code (WAC) 173-303-300(1), (2), (3), (4), (5), and (6). WESF is an interim status other storage-miscellaneous storage unit. WESF stores mixed waste consisting of radioactive cesium and strontium salts. WESF is located in the 200 East Area on the Hanford Facility.

  15. SECONDARY WASTE MANAGEMENT STRATEGY FOR EARLY LOW ACTIVITY WASTE TREATMENT

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    TW, CRAWFORD

    2008-07-17

    This study evaluates parameters relevant to River Protection Project secondary waste streams generated during Early Low Activity Waste operations and recommends a strategy for secondary waste management that considers groundwater impact, cost, and programmatic risk. The recommended strategy for managing River Protection Project secondary waste is focused on improvements in the Effiuent Treatment Facility. Baseline plans to build a Solidification Treatment Unit adjacent to Effluent Treatment Facility should be enhanced to improve solid waste performance and mitigate corrosion of tanks and piping supporting the Effiuent Treatment Facility evaporator. This approach provides a life-cycle benefit to solid waste performance and reduction of groundwater contaminants.

    Full Text Available Ao decorrer dos tempos, as profundas mudanças no ensino e na pesquisa advindas do avanço tecnológico e, sobretudo, a valoração crescente do ensino superior e da investigação científica vêm acarretando intensa controvérsia em torno do velho e desgastado slogan publish or perish. Cada vez mais, orientadores ou tutores de teses e trabalhos acadêmicos em geral aparecem como primeiro autor ou co-autor de trabalhos realizados por seus alunos, recorrendo ao argumento de que a autoria, como atividade e processo, sofre intensas mutações sociais, culturais, econômicas e políticas. Este é um tema que suscita debate e conduz a mudanças conceituais que exigem a reconstrução dos fundamentos teóricos que cercam a autoria, mas sem relegar a questão ética de respeito à produção do outro.

    Full Text Available Este artigo trata de uma questão que surge sempre que a problemática do corpo na teoria freudiana é desdobrada. Seria Freud monista, dualista ou pluralista? Nosso primeiro esforço é definir estes termos do léxico filosófico, atentando para a sua generalidade. Em seguida, debruçamo-nos sobre a obra freudiana para mostrar que sua teoria não se encaixa nestas categorias, ou antes, ela aglomera os três termos já que trabalha simultaneamente com monismos, dualismos e pluralismos. Analisamos os conceitos de inconsciente, pulsão, equação etiológica e séries complementares para sustentar esta posição.This article deals with a question that always appears when we investigate the problem of the body in Freud's theory. Is Freud a monist, a dualist or a pluralist? Our first effort is to define these terms of the philosophical lexic, paying attention to its generality. Afterwards, we study the Freudian work in order to show that his theory does not fit into these categories. On the contrary, it puts together the three terms once it works at the same time with monisms, dualisms and pluralisms.

    Full Text Available Nos últimos 50 anos, foram publicados inúmeros estudos com a finalidade de comprovar se a dieta está relacionada à etiologia da acne. Embora existam estudos antigos, que são bem difundidos entre os dermatologistas e negam a associação entre acne e dieta, seu delineamento científico é pobre. Recentemente, novos artigos demonstraram evidências contrárias às publicações anteriores. Sendo assim, os autores realizaram esta revisão bibliográfica com o intuito de averiguar se a dieta influencia direta ou indiretamente um ou mais dos quatro pilares etiopatogênicos fundamentais da acne: (1 hiperproliferação dos queratinócitos basais, (2 aumento da produção sebácea, (3 colonização pelo Propionibacterium acnes e (4 inflamação.Numerous studies were published over the last 50 years to investigate whether diet is associated with the etiology of acne. Although older studies well known by dermatologists that refute the association between acne and diet exist, their scientific foundation is weak. New articles have recently brought to light evidence contrary to previous findings. Therefore, we would like to investigate whether diet, directly or indirectly, influences one or more of the four fundamental etiopathogenic pillars of acne: (1 hyperproliferation of basal keratinocytes, (2 increase of sebaceous production, (3 colonization by Propionibacterium acnes, and (4 inflammation.

    Full Text Available As infeções do trato urinário associadas à cateterização são muito frequentes no contexto comunitário e hospitalar. Existem atualmente várias recomendações para sua prevenção, contudo, quando abordado o soluto a utilizar no meato urinário previamente à algaliação continuam a persistir dúvidas. Assim, este estudo procurou determinar a eficácia da limpeza do meato urinário com água ou soro fisiológico comparativamente à sua assepsia por meio de uma revisão sistemática com metanálise. Para isso foram seguidos os princípios propostos pelo Cochrane Handbook , a análise crítica realizada por dois investigadores e a análise estatística com recurso ao programa STATA 11.1. Podemos concluir que a limpeza ou desinfeção do meato urinário previamente à cateterização vesical não é estatisticamente significativa (OR=1,07, IC 95%=0,68-1,68, p=0,779, existindo alguma evidência de que a utilização de água/soro fisiológico reduz as taxas de ITU.

    Full Text Available O objetivo deste trabalho foi avaliar o plantio direto de alface americana no verão sobre plantas de cobertura dessecadas ou roçadas em cultivos sucessivos. O trabalho foi desenvolvido no município de Álvares Machado, São Paulo, Brasil. O delineamento experimental foi em blocos ao acaso, dispostos em parcelas subdivididas, com quatro repetições. O fator da parcela principal foram dois manejos das plantas de cobertura (dessecadas com herbicida ou roçadas e as subparcelas, seis espécies de plantas de cobertura (Cajanus cajan cv. IAPAR 43, Crotalaria spectabilis, Crotalaria juncea, Mucuna pruriens, Pennisetum glaucum e vegetação natural, além da testemunha sem plantas de cobertura. O manejo roçado apresentou desempenho inferior no primeiro cultivo da alface, todavia não diferiu do manejo químico no segundo cultivo. A cobertura do solo com mucuna apresentou maior produtividade da alface no primeiro cultivo devido ao excesso de palha das demais coberturas, o qual prejudicou o estabelecimento da alface. No segundo cultivo não houve diferenças entre as coberturas. A roçagem de plantas de cobertura é uma opção viável para plantio direto de alface sem herbicidas.

  2. Nonlinear optical effects and Hong-Ou-Mandel interference in cavity quantum electrodynamics

    Mirza, Imran M.; van Enk, Steven J.

    Pure quantum interference among single photons is one of the key ingredients to perform linear optics quantum computation (LOQC). The Hong-Ou-Mandel interference (HOMI) [C. K. Hong, Z. Y. Ou and L. Mandel, Phys. Rev. Lett. 59, (18), 2044-2046 (1987)] i.e. complete destructive interference between two identical and indistinguishable photons simultaneously entering input ports of a 50/50 beam splitter, is a well-known example in this context. In this talk, I'll present our theoretical study of HOMI in a coupled Jaynes-Cummings array. In particular and by applying quantum jump/trajectory formalism, I'll focus on how partial quantum interference between two photons survive both non-linearities produced by two-level emitter and spectral filtering due to optical cavities in our coupled cavity array setup [Imran M. Mirza and Steven J. van Enk, Opt. Comm. 343, 172-177 (2015)]. Along with LOQC, this work is crucial from the perspective of exploiting coupled cavity arrays to store single photons reliably (without altering their temporal and spectral traits) [Imran M. Mirza, Steven J. van Enk and Jeff Kimble, JOSA B, 10, 2640-2649, (2013)].

    In the South of the Mediterranean basin, many rivers are characterized by an alternation of very long dry periods only cut by short flood events. Currently, the socio-economical development of these zones is limited by water scarcity and poor quality of the water resources. Indeed human activities, generally concentrated in overpopulated cities, generate large quantity of domestic and industrial effluents which are directly rejected in the environment without any treatment. In Morocco, the well known city of Fez illustrates perfectly this situation, observed in most developing countries. The oued Fez receives continuously the non-treated domestic and industrial effluents (90.000 m3/day) of the city and pollutes all the downstream water bodies. Indeed, it is a tributary of the Sebou River, a major body of great economical importance used for irrigation and freshwater supply. This study aims at characterising and quantifying the pollutant concentrations and fluxes in various points of oued Fez's hydrological network and assessing its impact on the Sebou River; this river's preservation being considered a national priority in Morocco. A coupled water quality-water quantity monitoring scheme has been implemented on oued Fez since 2008. In addition to basic hydrological data, water quality samples are collected at regular intervals at 8 locations where discharge is simultaneously measured using an Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP). Water samples are analysed for different forms of nitrogen (nitrates, nitrites, ammonium and total nitrogen), phosphorus (soluble reactive phosphorus and total phosphorus) but also total chromium which is used in the leather tanning processes, one of the most important industrial production of the city of Fez, using a photospectrometer (Hach Lange DR 2800 VIS-photometer (Germany). The results of 17 sampling campaigns, carried out over 3 hydrological years, indicate that the rural areas contribute mostly to baseflow during the wet

    The Hanford Site Effluent Treatment Facility (ETF) currently treats aqueous waste streams generated during site cleanup activities. When the Hanford Tank Waste Treatment and Immobilization Plant (WTP) begins operations, including Direct Feed Low Activity Waste (DFLAW) vitrification, a liquid secondary waste (LSW) stream from the WTP will need to be treated. The volume of effluent for treatment at the ETF will increase significantly. The powdered salt waste form produced by the ETF will be replaced by a stabilized solidified waste form for disposal in Hanford’s Integrated Disposal Facility (IDF). Washington River Protection Solutions is implementing a Secondary Liquid Waste Immobilization Technology Development Plan to address the technology needs for a waste form and solidification process to treat the increased volume of waste planned for disposal at the IDF. Waste form testing to support this plan is composed of work in the near term to provide data as input to a performance assessment (PA) for Hanford’s IDF. In 2015, three Hanford Liquid Secondary Waste simulants were developed based on existing and projected waste streams. Using these waste simulants, fourteen mixes of Hanford Liquid Secondary Waste were prepared and tested varying the waste simulant, the water-to-dry materials ratio, and the dry materials blend composition.1 In FY16, testing was performed using a simulant of the EMF process condensate blended with the caustic scrubber—from the Low Activity Waste (LAW) melter—, processed through the ETF. The initial EMF-16 simulant will be based on modeling efforts performed to determine the mass balance of the ETF for the DFLAW.2 The compressive strength of all of the mixes exceeded the target of 3.4 MPa (500 psi) to meet the requirements identified as potential IDF Waste Acceptance Criteria in Table 1 of the Secondary Liquid Waste Immobilization Technology Development Plan.3 The hydraulic properties of the waste forms tested (hydraulic conductivity

Au-delà du drame humain qui a fait plus d’une centaine de morts et plus d’un millier de blessés, cette contestation s’est formulée autour d’une organisation anachronique : les aarch. Système sociopolitique ancien dont les dernières traces d’existence remontent à la fin du XIXe siècle, il a mobilisé dans et par la tribu reconfigurée selon les besoins contemporains. Cette utilisation d’une organisation sociale maghrébine a permis de une inscription dans le temps par la mémoire mobilisée par la tribu.En effet, dans une perspective politique, les aarch, pour contester le présent, ont mis en exergue des patrimoines historiques et mémoriels effacés par l’État nation algérien. Mobilisant ainsi l’histoire de la guerre de décolonisation, fondatrice de l’État indépendant, les aarch se sont directement attaqués au vouloir vivre ensemble, redéfinissant les bases constitutives de la nation. Cette dynamique mémorielle et historique a aussi permis aux militants et partisans de revisiter un passé plus lointain : crises au sein du mouvement nationaliste, mouvements sociaux post Indépendance, etc. Ce remaniement des mémoires, dont la culture et la langue restent les socles, a permis d’envisager des territoires culturels, identitaires dépassant les frontières stato-nationales.Si ces données sont celles du politique, des militants, les bases sociales du mouvement, qui a mobilisé jusqu’à 1,5 million de personnes, ont réutilisé ces outils de la contestation pour les transformer en sources du malaise socioéconomique contemporain.The riots that have bloodstained Kabylie in the spring of 2001 have raised different problematics. Beyond the human drama which has resulted in more than a hundred deaths and a thousand wounded, this contestation formulated itself around an anachronic organization: the

    Full Text Available Si pendant longtemps, l’état des réserves de pétrole n’a pas suscité de craintes particulières, la question de l’épuisement des ressources se pose de manière plus aiguë depuis quelques années, en raison notamment de la hausse rapide de la consommation dans les pays émergents. Les discours alarmistes se multiplient, annonçant une exacerbation des conflits entre grandes puissances pour l’appropriation des ressources dans un contexte de pénurie. Une analyse critique, tant de la réalité de l’épuisement des réserves que du fondement des discours géopolitiques qui l’accompagnent, est nécessaire. Car loin d’être un concept univoque, les réserves sont une notion dynamique, évoluant en fonction du prix du pétrole et des progrès technologiques – ce qui explique que les réserves ne cessent… d’augmenter. La polémique sur les réserves de pétrole masque en réalité un autre débat, bien plus important : celui du réchauffement climatique qui impose à nos sociétés de se détourner du pétrole et de développer des énergies alternatives.

    1995-01-01

    This guidance presents a method and definitions for aggregating U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) waste into streams and treatability groups based on characteristic parameters that influence waste management technology needs. Adaptable to all DOE waste types (i.e., radioactive waste, hazardous waste, mixed waste, sanitary waste), the guidance establishes categories and definitions that reflect variations within the radiological, matrix (e.g., bulk physical/chemical form), and regulated contaminant characteristics of DOE waste. Beginning at the waste container level, the guidance presents a logical approach to implementing the characteristic parameter categories as part of the basis for defining waste streams and as the sole basis for assigning streams to treatability groups. Implementation of this guidance at each DOE site will facilitate the development of technically defined, site-specific waste stream data sets to support waste management planning and reporting activities. Consistent implementation at all of the sites will enable aggregation of the site-specific waste stream data sets into comparable national data sets to support these activities at a DOE complex-wide level.

    Recurring waste management noncompliance problems have spurred a fundamental site-wide process revision to characterize and disposition wastes at the Idaho National Engineering and Environmental Laboratory. The reengineered method, termed Waste Generator Services, will streamline the waste acceptance process and provide waste generators comprehensive waste management services through a single, accountable organization to manage and disposition wastes in a timely, cost-effective, and compliant manner. This report outlines the strategy for implementing Waste Generator Services across the INEEL. It documents the culmination of efforts worked by the LMITCO Environmental Management Compliance Reengineering project team since October 1997. These efforts have included defining problems associated with the INEEL waste management process; identifying commercial best management practices; completing a review of DOE Complex-wide waste management training requirements; and involving others through an Integrated Process Team approach to provide recommendations on process flow, funding/charging mechanisms, and WGS organization. The report defines the work that will be performed by Waste Generator Services, the organization and resources, the waste acceptance process flow, the funding approach, methods for measuring performance, and the implementation schedule and approach. Field deployment will occur first at the Idaho Chemical Processing Plant in June 1998. Beginning in Fiscal Year 1999, Waste Generator Services will be deployed at the other major INEEL facilities in a phased approach, with implementation completed by March 1999.

    Local level waste authorities and their officials directly interact and serve the people on behalf of higher governments. Given the influential positions they have on the quality of life of the citizens, these local waste authorities deserve more attention from researchers. This study throws light on the factors related to local waste management and administrators that have caused waste management failures in three mainland Chinese cities. Based on a survey conducted in 2002-2003, it was found that waste administrators in these cities are not professionally competent in their jobs and they are also not confident in using economic instruments to address waste management issues in their cities. These local waste authorities are generally under-funded, and funding politics has to some extent eroded the incentives to carry out the instructions of higher waste authorities. The community at large also does not respect local waste management work. The residents frequently litter, are unobservant of waste collection times and are unwilling to pay for waste collection service. All of these are handicapping environmentally sound waste management.

    After the introduction of a law prohibiting the start-up of any new nuclear power plant until the utility had shown that the waste produced by the plant could be taken care of in an absolutely safe way, the Swedish nuclear utilities in December 1976 embarked on the Nuclear Fuel Safety Project, which in November 1977 presented a first report, Handling of Spent Nuclear Fuel and Final Storage of Vitrified Waste (KBS-I), and in November 1978 a second report, Handling and Final Storage of Unreprocessed Spent Nuclear Fuel (KBS II). These summary reports were supported by 120 technical reports prepared by 450 experts. The project engaged 70 private and governmental institutions at a total cost of US $15 million. The KBS-I and KBS-II reports are summarized in this document, as are also continued waste research efforts carried out by KBS, SKBF, PRAV, ASEA and other Swedish organizations. The KBS reports describe all steps (except reprocessing) in handling chain from removal from a reactor of spent fuel elements until their radioactive waste products are finally disposed of, in canisters, in an underground granite depository. The KBS concept relies on engineered multibarrier systems in combination with final storage in thoroughly investigated stable geologic formations. This report also briefly describes other activities carried out by the nuclear industry, namely, the construction of a central storage facility for spent fuel elements (to be in operation by 1985), a repository for reactor waste (to be in operation by 1988), and an intermediate storage facility for vitrified high-level waste (to be in operation by 1990). The R and D activities are updated to September 1981.

    Geophysical diffraction tomography (GDT), a remote sensing method, is being developed for hazardous waste site characterization by researchers at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Tenn., with the support of the U.S. Army Toxic and Hazardous Materials Agency, Aberdeen Proving Ground, Md.More accurate assessment of hazardous sites translates into more efficient and less costly cleanup efforts by defining parameters such as waste site boundaries, geophysical site characteristics, buried container leakage, and hazardous material migration.

    This Process Waste Assessment was conducted to evaluate hazardous wastes generated in the Paint Shop, Building 913, Room 130. Special attention is given to waste streams generated by the spray painting process because it requires a number of steps for preparing, priming, and painting an object. Also, the spray paint booth covers the largest area in R-130. The largest and most costly waste stream to dispose of is {open_quote}Paint Shop waste{close_quotes} -- a combination of paint cans, rags, sticks, filters, and paper containers. These items are compacted in 55-gallon drums and disposed of as solid hazardous waste. Recommendations are made for minimizing waste in the Paint Shop. Paint Shop personnel are very aware of the need to minimize hazardous wastes and are continuously looking for opportunities to do so.

    Guided-wave platforms such as fiber and silicon-on-insulator waveguide show great advances over traditional free space implementations in quantum information technology for significant advantages of low transmission loss, low cost, integrability and compatible with mature fiber communication systems. Interference between independent photon sources is the key to realize complex quantum systems for more sophisticated applications such as multi-photon entanglement generation and quantum teleportation. In this work, we report Hong-Ou-Mandel interference between two independent all fiber photon pair sources over two 100GHz dense wave division multiplexing channels, the visibility reaches 53.2(8.4)% (82.9(5.3)%) without (with) back ground counts subtracted. In addition, we give a general theoretical description of the purity of the photon pair generation in dispersion shifted fiber and obtain the optimized condition for high purity photon pair generation. We also obtain a maximum coincidence to back ground ratio of...

    2014-05-01

    We present recent work in which we demonstrate near-complete control over all the internal and external degrees of freedom of laser-cooled 87Rb atoms trapped in sub-micron optical tweezers. Utilizing this control for two atoms in two optical tweezers, we implement a massive-particle analog of the Hong-Ou-Mandel interferometer where atom tunneling plays the role of the photon beamsplitter. The interferometer is used to probe the effect of atomic indistinguishability on the two-atom dynamics for a variety of initial conditions. These experiments demonstrate the viability of the optical tweezer platform for bottom-up generation of low-entropy quantum systems and pave the way toward the direct observation of quantum dynamics in more complex finite-sized systems.

    2015-01-01

    Photonic-crystal-based integrated optical systems have been used for a broad range of sensing applications with great success. This has been motivated by several advantages such as high sensitivity, miniaturization, remote sensing, selectivity and stability. Many photonic crystal sensors have been proposed with various fabrication designs that result in improved optical properties. Here we propose a novel multi-purpose sensor architecture that can be used for force, refractive index and possibly local temperature detection. In this scheme, two coupled cavities behave as an "effective beam splitter". The sensor works based on fourth order interference (the Hong-Ou-Mandel effect) and requires a sequence of single photon pulses and consequently has low pulse power. Changes in the parameter to be measured induce variations in the effective beam splitter reflectivity and result in changes to the visibility of interference. We demonstrate this generic scheme in coupled L3 photonic crystal cavities as an example and...

  15. Laser cooling atoms to indistinguishability: Atomic Hong-Ou-Mandel interference and entanglement through spin exchange

    Science.gov (United States)

    Kaufman, Adam

    2016-05-01

    Motional control of neutral atoms has a rich history and increasingly interest has turned to single-atom control. In my thesis work, we created a platform to individually prepare single bosonic atoms in highly pure quantum states, by developing methods to laser cool single atoms to the vibrational ground state of optical tweezer traps. Applying this toolset, we observe the atomic Hong-Ou-Mandel effect when we arrange for atom tunneling to play the role of a balanced beam splitter between two optical tweezers. In another experiment, we utilize spin exchange to create entanglement, which we then verify after spatially separating the atoms to observe their non-local correlations. Merging these results with our recent demonstration of deterministic loading of atomic arrays, our results establish the concept of quantum gas assembly, which could be applied to a variety of systems ranging from the production of single dipolar molecules to the assembly of low-entropy arrays of atoms.

  16. Optimal quantum cloning of orbital angular momentum photon qubits via Hong-Ou-Mandel coalescence

    2010-01-01

    The orbital angular momentum (OAM) of light, associated with a helical structure of the wavefunction, has a great potential for quantum photonics, as it allows attaching a higher dimensional quantum space to each photon. Hitherto, however, the use of OAM has been hindered by its difficult manipulation. Here, exploiting the recently demonstrated spin-OAM information transfer tools, we report the first observation of the Hong-Ou-Mandel coalescence of two incoming photons having nonzero OAM into the same outgoing mode of a beam-splitter. The coalescence can be switched on and off by varying the input OAM state of the photons. Such effect has been then exploited to carry out the 1 \\rightarrow 2 universal optimal quantum cloning of OAM-encoded qubits, using the symmetrization technique already developed for polarization. These results are finally shown to be scalable to quantum spaces of arbitrary dimension, even combining different degrees of freedom of the photons.

    Hong-Ou-Mandel (HOM) interference is demonstrated experimentally for entangled photon pairs in the Hermite-Gauss (HG) basis. We use two Dove prisms in one of the paths of the photons to manipulate the entangled quantum state that enters the HOM interferometer. It is demonstrated that, when entangled photon pairs are in a symmetric Bell state in the Laguerre-Gauss (LG) basis, then they will remain symmetric after decomposing them into the HG basis, thereby resulting in no coincidence events after the HOM interference. On the other hand, if the photon pairs are in an antisymmetric Bell state in the LG basis, then they will also be antisymmetric in the HG basis, thereby producing only coincidence events as a result of the HOM interference.

    The kinetics and the effects of various parameters on hydrogen production by Rhodobacter sphaeroides O.U. 001 were investigated in a batch column photobioreactor. In particular, the effect of the inoculum age and the implementation of a light-dark cycle illumination scheme for emulating natural sunlight have been investigated in detail. The possibility of using yeast extract to replace the rather expensive vitamin mixture in the medium was also studied. The results show that hydrogen production is decreased when the initially inoculated bacteria have a high culture age. Exposure of the bacterial culture to light-dark cycles increased the amount of hydrogen compared to continuous illumination, all other parameters remaining the same. Similarly, the use of yeast extract to replace the vitamins increased the growth and hydrogen production rates, however, with a slight reduction in the total amount of gas produced and the hydrogen fraction in the evolved gas.

  4. Multiparticle Correlations in Mesoscopic Scattering: Boson Sampling, Birthday Paradox, and Hong-Ou-Mandel Profiles

    2016-03-01

    The interplay between single-particle interference and quantum indistinguishability leads to signature correlations in many-body scattering. We uncover these with a semiclassical calculation of the transmission probabilities through mesoscopic cavities for systems of noninteracting particles. For chaotic cavities we provide the universal form of the first two moments of the transmission probabilities over ensembles of random unitary matrices, including weak localization and dephasing effects. If the incoming many-body state consists of two macroscopically occupied wave packets, their time delay drives a quantum-classical transition along a boundary determined by the bosonic birthday paradox. Mesoscopic chaotic scattering of Bose-Einstein condensates is, then, a realistic candidate to build a boson sampler and to observe the macroscopic Hong-Ou-Mandel effect.

    The quality of individual photons and their ability to interfere are traditionally tested by measuring the Hong-Ou-Mandel photon bunching effect. However, this phase-insensitive measurement only tests the particle aspect of the quantum interference, leaving out the phase-sensitive aspects relevant for continuous-variable processing. To overcome these limitations we formulate a witness capable of recognizing both the indistinguishability of the single photons and their quality with regard to their continuous-variable utilization. We exploit the conditional nonclassical squeezing and show that it can reveal both the particle and the wave aspects of the quantum interference in a single set of direct measurements. We experimentally test the witness by applying it to a pair of independent single photons retrieved on demand.

Werner Wolf affirme quant à lui que « la musique peut créer du suspense par le biais de passage disharmonieux ou par des excursions dans des tonalités étrangères qui précèdent l’arrivée de résolutions harmonieuses ou le retour à la tonalité de base ». Dans ces lignes, nous aimerions montrer que si nous acceptons de redéfinir l’intrigue, non comme la trame de l’histoire racontée, mais comme une forme dynamique qui dépend d’une progression passant par des phases de tension et de détente, cette dernière ne constitue plus le point de divergence principal entre récit et musique, mais, au contraire, l’un des points de convergence les plus évidents.In his famous commentary of Sarrazine, Barthes argues that there is “the same constraint in the progressive order of the melody and in the narrative sequence, which is equally progressive”. Werner Wolf states meanwhile that “music can create suspense by disharmonious passages or excursions into foreign keys which before coming to harmonious resolutions or returning to the home key.” In these lines, we aim to show that if we agree to redefine the plot, not as the structure of the story told, but as a dynamic form that depends on a progression through phases of tension and resolution, it is no longer the main gap between narrative and music, but, on the contrary, one of the most obvious feature that they share.

  12. Hong-Ou-Mandel interference of two phonons in trapped ions

    2015-11-01

    The quantum statistics of bosons and fermions manifest themselves in the manner in which two indistinguishable particles interfere quantum mechanically. When two photons, which are bosonic particles, enter a beam-splitter with one photon in each input port, they bunch together at either of the two output ports. The corresponding disappearance of the coincidence count is the Hong-Ou-Mandel effect. Here we show the phonon counterpart of this effect in a system of trapped-ion phonons, which are collective excitations derived by quantizing vibrational motions that obey Bose-Einstein statistics. We realize a beam-splitter transformation of the phonons by employing the mutual Coulomb repulsion between ions, and perform a two-phonon quantum interference experiment using that transformation. We observe an almost perfect disappearance of the phonon coincidence between two ion sites, confirming that phonons can be considered indistinguishable bosonic particles. The two-particle interference demonstrated here is purely a quantum effect, without a classical counterpart, hence it should be possible to demonstrate the existence of entanglement on this basis. We attempt to generate an entangled state of phonons at the centre of the Hong-Ou-Mandel dip in the coincidence temporal profile, under the assumption that the entangled phonon state is successfully generated if the fidelity of the analysis pulses is taken into account adequately. Two-phonon interference, as demonstrated here, proves the bosonic nature of phonons in a trapped-ion system. It opens the way to establishing phonon modes as carriers of quantum information in their own right, and could have implications for the quantum simulation of bosonic particles and analogue quantum computation via boson sampling.

  14. A Psicanálise para Foucault: ontologia ou Hermenêutica?

    2016-03-01

    Full Text Available RESUMO: O presente artigo tem como objetivo discutir o estatuto que Foucault confere à psicanálise. Em As palavras e as coisas, de 1966, Foucault condena todo tipo de reflexão que procura conferir estatuto ontológico à finitude humana. Nesse sentido, faz-se necessário investigar se a crítica que Foucault endereça à psicanálise depois de 66 se dá nos mesmos termos que a crítica feita às analíticas da finitude. Ou seja, trata-se de entender se a acusação de que a psicanálise não passa de mais um "dispositivo de sexualidade" a serviço do biopoder está fundada na ideia de que a psicanálise supõe uma ontologia. A ideia da psicanálise como ontologia, contudo, é uma tese recusada por Foucault em alguns escritos da década de 50 e 60. Nesse período, o filósofo defende que a psicanálise é antes de tudo um método hermenêutico e não uma teoria geral sobre o homem. Assim, se é verdade que as teses genealógicas finais de Foucault sobre a psicanálise se fundamentam na visão da psicanálise como ontologia, deparamo-nos com um problema: afinal, a psicanálise, para Foucault, consiste ou não numa teoria sobre o ser do homem?

OBJETIVO: Avaliar a necessidade do tamponamento nasal anterior e a qualidade de vida nos doentes submetidos à septoplastia. MÉTODO: Doentes submetidos à septoplastia, com ou sem turbinoplastia inferior, foram randomizados para a colocação ou não de tamponamento nasal anterior no pós-operatório. Foram registados e comparados os dados relativos ao pós-operatório (dor, hemorragia. A qualidade de vida foi avaliada no pré e pós-operatório. Estudo prospetivo randomizado. RESULTADOS: Foram incluídos 73 doentes (37 tamponados e 36 não tamponados com seguimento mínimo de 3 meses. Nos doentes tamponados, a dor nasal e as cefaleias no pós-operatório imediato foram superiores. Destes doentes, 75,7% referiram dor moderada/intensa no destamponamento. Nos doentes não tamponados, a hemorragia foi mais frequente, mas apenas um doente necessitou tamponamento. Houve melhoria da qualidade de vida em todos os doentes. CONCLUSÃO: A septoplastia melhora a qualidade de vida do doente com desvio do septo e obstrução nasal. O uso por rotina do tamponamento nasal anterior deve ser questionado por não apresentar benefício comprovado.

A empresa estudada apresenta um padrão dos mais avançados na dimensão organizacional das relações de trabalho ou no local de trabalho considerado o contexto brasileiro. A solução de conflitos do trabalho nesta empresa aponta fortemente para um padrão negocial em relação ao estatutário (Zylberstajn e Pastore, 1985, o que levou alguns autores a indicar um modo de cooperação-conflitiva para lidar com as relações de trabalho (Rodrigues, 1997 e uma via institucionalizada de inserção dos trabalhadores nos processos de inovação tecnológica e gerencial (Bresciani, 2002.

    1993-11-09

    The treatment of mixed waste remains one of this country`s most vexing environmental problems. Mixed waste is the combination of radioactive waste and hazardous waste, as defined by the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). The Department of Energy (DOE), as the country`s largest mixed waste generator, responsible for 95 percent of the Nation`s mixed waste volume, is now required to address a strict set of milestones under the Federal Facility Compliance Act of 1992. DOE`s earlier failure to adequately address the storage and treatment issues associated with mixed waste has led to a significant backlog of temporarily stored waste, significant quantities of buried waste, limited permanent disposal options, and inadequate treatment solutions. Between May and November of 1993, the Mixed Waste Working Group brought together stakeholders from around the Nation. Scientists, citizens, entrepreneurs, and bureaucrats convened in a series of forums to chart a course for accelerated testing of innovative mixed waste technologies. For the first time, a wide range of stakeholders were asked to examine new technologies that, if given the chance to be tested and evaluated, offer the prospect for better, safer, cheaper, and faster solutions to the mixed waste problem. In a matter of months, the Working Group has managed to bridge a gap between science and perception, engineer and citizen, and has developed a shared program for testing new technologies.

  9. Biomedical waste in Indian context

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    2000-07-01

    In its broadest sense, medical waste applies to solid or liquid waste generated in the diagnosis, treatment of immunization of human beings or animals in research, in the production or testing of biological material. Of all the wastes produced by hospitals, the World Health Organization estimated that 10 per cent of it is infectious and 5 per cent consists of hazardous chemicals such as methylchloride and formaldehyde. Of course, one of the major concerns is the transmission of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and hepatitis B or C viruses. If the medical waste is not properly managed, a high degree of pollution and public health risks exists, particularly if the medical waste is mixed with municipal solid waste and dumped in uncontrolled areas. In New Delhi, the daily medical waste generated is 60 metric tons. In 1989, the Bureau of Indian Standards, New Delhi published guidelines for the management of Solid Wastes-Hospitals. Some rules governing the classification of biomedical waste were published in 1997-98 by the Ministry of Environment and Forests. Recommendations by the author included the segregation of hospital wastes, the set up of common medical waste treatment facilities as well as the training of Municipality workers in the safe handling of medical wastes. 7 refs., 3 tabs.

And it’s not only the motor that’s electric: its waste compactor and lifting mechanism are also electrically powered*, making it the first 100% electric waste collection vehicle in French-speaking Switzerland. Considering that a total of 15.5 tonnes of household waste and paper/cardboard are collected each week from the Meyrin and Prévessin sites, the benefits for the environment are clear. This improvement comes as part of CERN’s contract with Transvoirie, which stipulates that the firm must propose ways of becoming more environmentally friendly (at no extra cost to CERN). *The was...

    Context. When crossing the Hertzsprung gap, intermediate-mass stars develop a convective envelope. Fast rotators on the main sequence, or Ap star descendants, are expected to become magnetic active subgiants during this evolutionary phase. Aims: We compare the surface magnetic fields and activity indicators of two active, fast rotating red giants with similar masses and spectral class but different rotation rates - OU And (Prot = 24.2 d) and 31 Com (Prot = 6.8 d) - to address the question of the origin of their magnetism and high activity. Methods: Observations were carried out with the Narval spectropolarimeter in 2008 and 2013. We used the least-squares deconvolution (LSD) technique to extract Stokes V and I profiles with high signal-to-noise ratio to detect Zeeman signatures of the magnetic field of the stars. We then provide Zeeman-Doppler imaging (ZDI), activity indicators monitoring, and a precise estimation of stellar parameters. We use state-of-the-art stellar evolutionary models, including rotation, to infer the evolutionary status of our giants, as well as their initial rotation velocity on the main sequence, and we interpret our observational results in the light of the theoretical Rossby numbers. Results: The detected magnetic field of OU Andromedae (OU And) is a strong one. Its longitudinal component Bl reaches 40 G and presents an about sinusoidal variation with reversal of the polarity. The magnetic topology of OU And is dominated by large-scale elements and is mainly poloidal with an important dipole component, as well as a significant toroidal component. The detected magnetic field of 31 Comae (31 Com) is weaker, with a magnetic map showing a more complex field geometry, and poloidal and toroidal components of equal contributions. The evolutionary models show that the progenitors of OU And and 31 Com must have been rotating at velocities that correspond to 30 and 53%, respectively, of their critical rotation velocity on the zero age main sequence

    Commercial nuclear energy has been used for over 6 decades; however, to date, none of the 30+ countries with nuclear power has opened a repository for high-level waste (HLW). All countries with nuclear waste plan to dispose of it in metallic containers located in underground geologically stable repositories. Some countries also have liquid nuclear waste that needs to be reduced and vitrified before disposition. The five articles included in this topic offer a cross section of the importance of alloy selection to handle nuclear waste at the different stages of waste processing and disposal.

    2013-01-01

    Waste printed circuit boards (WPCBs) are resource-rich but hazardous, demanding innovative strategies for post-consumer collection, recycling, and mining for economically precious constituents. A novel technology for disassembling electronic components from WPCBs is proposed, using hot air to melt solders and to separate the components and base boards. An automatic heated-air disassembling equipment was designed to operate at a heating source temperature at a maximum of 260 °C and an inlet pressure of 0.5 MPa. A total of 13 individual WPCBs were subjected to disassembling tests at different preheat temperatures in increments of 20 °C between 80 and 160 °C, heating source temperatures ranging from 220 to 300 °C in increments of 20 °C, and incubation periods of 1, 2, 4, 6, or 8 min. For each experimental treatment, the disassembly efficiency was calculated as the ratio of electronic components released from the board to the total number of its original components. The optimal preheat temperature, heating source temperature, and incubation period to disassemble intact components were 120 °C, 260 °C, and 2 min, respectively. The disassembly rate of small surface mount components (side length ≤ 3 mm) was 40-50% lower than that of other surface mount components and pin through hole components. On the basis of these results, a reproducible and sustainable industrial ecological protocol using steam produced by industrial exhaust heat coupled to electronic-waste recycling is proposed, providing an efficient, promising, and green method for both electronic component recovery and industrial exhaust heat reutilization.

    Full Text Available L’article de Francis Dupuis-Déri commenté ici et qui tente de réconcilier l’action directe avec la théorie délibérative pose un certain nombre de questions. En premier lieu, pourquoi concéder aux théories libérales un contenu démocratique alors que ces théories démontrent plutôt une mise à l’écart de l’agir collectif démocratique. En ce sens, les régimes libéraux ne sont pas tant élitistes que profondément oligarchiques. Une fois cette précision apportée au débat, il est possible de lire l’article de F. Dupuis-Déri comme opposant deux visions distinctes du monde, l’une émanant de l’extension du marché économique à toutes les sphères de la vie et l’autre exigeant un monde plus égalitaire. La question du populisme devient alors essentielle pour bien comprendre les raisons qui motivent à dépeindre un groupe comme étant violent et anti-démocratique. Il importe ainsi de bien nommer les phénomènes et, en particulier, de comprendre la nature oligarchique des régimes libéraux pour légitimer les actions directes.My comments on Francis Dupuis-Déri’s paper, that tries to reconcile direct actions with deliberative theory, raises a number of questions. First, I wonder why the paper concedes any democratic substance to liberal theories, as these theories have repeatedly rejected all kinds of democratic collective action. In this sense, liberal regimes are not as much elitists as they are oligarchic. Once this clarification is made in the debate, it becomes possible to read F. Dupuis-Déri as contrasting two distinct visions of the world, one encouraging the expansion of the market in all spheres of life and the other demanding a more egalitarian world. The question of populism then becomes essential in trying to understand the reasons why a group is portrayed as being violent and anti-democratic. It is therefore important to properly name these types of phenomena and, in particular, to understand the

    Energy generation by wastes is considered one method of waste management that has the benefit of energy recovery. From the waste-to-energy point of view, waste cooking oil, waste lubricating oil, and waste plastics have been considered good candidates for feedstocks for energy conversion due to their high heating values. Compared to the independent management of these three wastes, the idea of co-processing them in integration is expected to gain more benefit. The economies of scale and the synergy of co-processing these wastes results in higher quality and higher yield of the end products. In this study, we use cost-benefit analysis to evaluate the integrated management scenario of collecting the three wastes and converting them to energy. We report the total heat of combustion of pyrolytic oil at the maximum and minimum conversion rates, and conduct a sensitivity analysis in which the parameters of an increase of the electricity cost for operating the process and increase of the feedstock transportation cost are tested. We evaluate the effects of economy of scale in the case of integrated waste management. We compare four cases of waste-to-energy conversion with the business as usual (BAU) scenario, and our results show that the integrated co-processing of waste cooking oil, waste lubricating oil, and waste plastics is the most profitable from the viewpoints of energy yield and economics.

    Boing, L.E.; Coffey, M.J.

    1995-12-01

    This technical guide presents various methods used by industry to minimize low-level radioactive waste (LLW) generated during decommissioning and decontamination (D and D) activities. Such activities generate significant amounts of LLW during their operations. Waste minimization refers to any measure, procedure, or technique that reduces the amount of waste generated during a specific operation or project. Preventive waste minimization techniques implemented when a project is initiated can significantly reduce waste. Techniques implemented during decontamination activities reduce the cost of decommissioning. The application of waste minimization techniques is not limited to D and D activities; it is also useful during any phase of a facility`s life cycle. This compendium will be supplemented with a second volume of abstracts of hundreds of papers related to minimizing low-level nuclear waste. This second volume is expected to be released in late 1996.

Ils sont conscients que l’issue de ces combats peut faire basculer le destin de la cause légitimiste en Europe. La possibilité de lutter pour des idéaux qu’ils ne pouvaient pas toujours revendiquer dans leurs pays d’origine pousse un certain nombre d’officiers de carrière à s’engager dans l’armée carliste mais aussi à publier un certain nombre d’ouvrages destinés à célébrer l’héroïsme qui préside dans leur propre camp. Ces défenseurs de la légitimité vont au devant d’une mémoire collective qui est celle des vaincus et qui leur contesterait donc le droit d’exister. S’ils sont conscients que le présent ne leur appartient plus, ils mettent tout leur espoir dans l’avenir et dans la marque qu’ils laisseront dans l’histoire qui, un jour peut-être, leur rendra justice.When the first Carlist war starts in Spain, the fate of European absolutism, which is facing the increasing strength of liberalism, seems to be at stake there. The protagonists of this conflict, as well as the echoes of some battles, raise the interest of the European public

    Full Text Available Avaliou-se a eficácia e a segurança anestésica em ovinos mantidos sob anestesia geral inalatória com isofluorano ou anestesia total intravenosa com propofol, ambas associadas à anestesia subaracnoidea. Quatorze ovinos foram pré-medicados com 0,3mg.kg-1 de morfina IM, e cinco minutos após, receberam 20mcg.kg-1 de detomidina IV. Posteriormente, foram alocados aleatoriamente em dois grupos: GISO (n=7, os quais foram induzidos à anestesia geral com 0,5mg.kg-1 de diazepam e 5mg.kg-1 de cetamina IV, e mantidos em anestesia geral inalatória com isoflurano diluído em oxigênio a 100%; e GPRO (n=7, induzidos com 4mg.kg-1 de propofol IV seguido inicialmente de infusão contínua na taxa de 0,3mg.kg-1.min-1. Para realização da osteotomia bilateral, todos os animais receberam 0,5mg.kg-1 de ropivacaína 0,75% associado a 0,1mg.kg-1 de morfina pela via subaracnoidea. Houve redução de 40% nos valores médios de frequência cardíaca após sedação em ambos os grupos, permanecendo em média 23% reduzida até o final da avaliação. A pressão arterial média aumentou 16%, após a indução anestésica no GISO, mas se reduziu até o final do procedimento, assim como no GPRO. A EtISO média foi de 0,57V% e a taxa média de infusão do propofol foi de 0,24mg.kg-1.min-1. Os tempos totais de cirurgia, anestesia e extubação foram de 66±9,8, 92±13,8 e 7,0±1,5 minutos no GISO e 56±2,4, 82,9±4,6 e 5,4±1,5 minutos no GPRO, não havendo diferença significativa entre grupos. A manutenção anestésica com isoflurano ou propofol promoveu plano anestésico similar com mínimos efeitos cardiovasculares ou hemogasométricos, que são bem tolerados em ovinos hígidos.

    Full Text Available Este artigo objetiva estudar a construção de atitudes e práticas desviantes de adolescentes de origem francesa ou imigrantes. Os dados da pesquisa foram obtidos em uma pesquisa de campo que incluiu observações e entrevistas realizadas ao longo de dois anos numa escola da periferia parisiense, A hipótese central é a de que os adolescentes dos bairros periféricos, ao ingressarem no ensino médio, já estão predispostos à cultura da escola ou à cultura da rua, cujas predisposições foram estruturadas na família, na comunidade ou nas escolas primárias. Assim, é nos colégios, em interação com processos especificamente escolares, que se desenvolvem condutas desviantes em alguns deles. Este texto evoca, primeiramente e de maneira geral, como os jovens percebem as interpelações e diferenças entre o colégio e o bairro, para em seguida voltar a atenção para três dimensões da sociabilidade adolescente que expressam as tensões entre a rua e a escola: as amizades juvenis, a sociabilidade em sala de aula e as relações interétnicas. A conclusão ressalta o peso que os processos de segregação têm para a perda da capacidade integrativa da escola, quer se tratem dos processos que ocorrrem nos estabelecimentos com um todo, quer sejam os que tomam lugar nas salas de aula.This article presents a study on the construction of deviant attitudes and practices on the part of French adolescents or immigrants. It is based on a fieldwork that included observations and interviews conducted along two years in a school of the Parisian periphery. The central hypothesis is that the adolescents of the outskirts neighborhoods, as they enter secondary school, are already predisposed to the culture of the school or to the culture of the street; predispositions that were structured in the family, in the community or in the elementary schools. Therefore, it is at the secondary schools, in interaction with processes specifically related to the school

MATERIAIS E MÉTODOS: Foi realizado estudo retrospectivo de seis casos confirmados desta síndrome, dando-se ênfase aos achados clínicos (idade, sexo e sintomas e de imagem (cintilografia óssea, radiografia convencional, tomografia computadorizada e ressonância magnética. RESULTADOS: A manifestação clínica inicial de todos os pacientes foi dor na parede torácica ântero-superior há pelo menos quatro meses. Todos apresentavam achados de imagem de processo inflamatório e/ou osteíte e hiperostose nas articulações da parede torácica ântero-superior. As alterações cutâneas da síndrome, tipo pustulose palmoplantar, estiveram presentes em cinco dos seis pacientes. Em nenhum dos seis casos o diagnóstico foi sugerido na consulta clínica inicial ou na primeira interpretação das imagens feita por radiologistas não especialistas em sistema músculo-esquelético. CONCLUSÃO: Os nossos achados estão de acordo com os descritos na literatura, devendo ser considerado este diagnóstico em todo paciente que apresente quadro doloroso de parede torácica acompanhado de manifestações dermatológicas e/ou osteíte.OBJECTIVE: To describe the clinical, imaging and pathological findings of SAPHO syndrome and to point out that although considered rare this syndrome may be under-diagnosed by clinicians and radiologists, probably due to unfamiliarity with its features.

    Full Text Available A presente pesquisa foi motivada pela disseminação de iniciativas voltadas para a gestão do conhecimento no ambiente empresarial, como as chamadas Universidades Corporativas (UC, consideradas uma evolução da tradicional área de Treinamento & Desenvolvimento. Questiona-se, contudo, se tais universidades oferecem aos seus participantes subsídios para refletir, criticar, criar, agir em todas as ações inseridas no escopo da educação, ou se, ao contrário, optam pela doutrinação. Foi este questionamento crítico que desencadeou o estudo aqui apresentado, suportado por pesquisa bibliográfica e de campo. Esta última foi realizada em uma UC brasileira. Contou com a participação de 103 funcionários da empresa. Os dados foram coletados por meio de um questionário fechado, elaborado com base nas teorias de doutrinação de Ivan Snook e Olivier Reboul. Os resultados desta pesquisa revelaram que a UC pesquisada tem poucas características doutrinárias. Essa circunstância, de certa forma, fere a suposição inicial do estudo, porém suscita outras, ao seu final: a nesta UC não predomina a doutrinação e o fato de abrir-se para a pesquisa já o afirma; b por ser uma UC do setor público, a doutrinação não se faz presente, tanto quanto se faz em uma empresa privada; c a UC pesquisada tem caráter doutrinário, porém na era do conhecimento em que vivemos, as formas de doutrinação são sutis; não raro os doutrinados não as percebem. Uma nova agenda de pesquisa poderá ajudar a confirmar ou não essas suposições.

    Full Text Available CONTEXTO: A realização de diagnóstico neurológico e psiquiátrico em ambiente de emergência hospitalar com freqüência é uma tarefa complexa e exige colaboração interdisciplinar. Um dos diagnósticos diferenciais de doenças neurológicas é o transtorno conversivo, cuja característica principal é a presença de sintomas afetando funções motoras ou sensoriais, que sugerem desordem clínica ou neurológica, porém sem doença orgânica subjacente que explique o quadro. RELATO DE CASO: Os autores relatam o caso de uma paciente de 23 anos com apresentação clínica atípica de acidente vascular cerebral, afasia global sem hemiparesia, que foi inicialmente diagnosticada como transtorno psiquiátrico pelo serviço de clínica médica de emergência. CONCLUSÃO: Certas apresentações neurológicas podem ser interpretadas como transtorno conversivo pelas similaridades clínicas entre as duas desordens, raridade do quadro clínico, pela presença de sintomatologia psiquiátrica e fatores psicossociais nos pacientes neurológicos. Mesmo com apresentações neurológicas atípicas e sintomas psiquiátricos, pacientes com quadro sugestivo de transtorno conversivo devem ser sempre investigados de forma interdisciplinar.BACKGROUND: The neurologic and psychiatric diagnosis in emergency settings are difficult tasks and require interdisciplinary effort. Conversion disorder is one of the differential diagnosis for certain neurologic disorders. The main characteristic is motor or sensory deficits suggesting neurologic or medical condition, but without organic disease that explains the symptoms. CASE REPORT: We present a 23 year-old-woman with an atypical clinical presentation of stroke: global aphasia without hemiparesis. This patient was initially diagnosed with conversion disorder by the internal medicine service in the emergency room. CONCLUSION: Some rare neurologic diseases can be interpreted as conversive disorders due to some reasons

    Full Text Available Este ensaio chama a atenção para a grave doença que atingiu a Universidade nos nossos dias. O recurso à metáfora do 'sarcófago' e do 'Leito de Procrustes' visa: acentuar o facto de que a Universidade está a abandonar a sua missão tradicional e a sofrer transformações perigosas; expressar a esperança de que ela se liberte das forças que a constrangem e consiga ressuscitar numa forma nova. Com efeito, a Universidade está sendo capturada pela ideologia, pelo pensamento, pela terminologia e pelos interesses do neoliberalismo e do mercado. Consequentemente, ela perde autonomia e voz e deixa de ter identidade, linguagem e pensamento próprios. Em vez de ser uma instituição ao serviço da Humanidade, da sociedade, da cultura, da democracia e da liberdade, a Universidade torna-se um fator e instrumento de propagação das doutrinas e receitas dos potentados financeiros e 'mercadológicos'. Tudo isto é bem visível no 'reformismo' e nas orientações da sua reorganização e governação, na oferta e no perfil dos seus cursos. Tal como o mercado, a Universidade já não oferece nada; só vende. Assim, a Universidade é cúmplice e corresponsável pela crise civilizacional, cultural, ética, moral e social que grassa no mundo. Em conclusão, a Universidade está a tornar-se uma instituição humana e socialmente irrelevante, sem capacidade de irradiar influências exemplares e positivas. Para reverter a situação, os protagonistas da Universidade têm que a tirar do 'sarcófago' ou do 'Leito de Procrustes', no qual, por ação ou omissão, a deixaram aprisionar.

    Full Text Available The problem concerning the growing demand for natural aggregates and the need to limit costs, including transportation from remote deposits, cause the increase in growth of interest in aggregates from mineral wastes as well as in technologies of their production and recovery. The paper presents the issue related to the group of aggregates other than natural. A common name is proposed for such material: “alternative aggregates”. The name seems to be fully justified due to adequacy of this term because of this raw materials origin and role, in comparison to the meaning of natural aggregates based on gravel and sand as well as crushed stones. The paper presents characteristics of the market and basic application of aggregates produced from mineral wastes, generated in the mining, power and metallurgical industries as well as material from demolished objects.

    1995-01-01

    A containment and waste package system for processing and shipping tritium xide waste received from a process gas includes an outer drum and an inner drum containing a disposable molecular sieve bed (DMSB) seated within outer drum. The DMSB includes an inlet diffuser assembly, an outlet diffuser assembly, and a hydrogen catalytic recombiner. The DMSB absorbs tritium oxide from the process gas and converts it to a solid form so that the tritium is contained during shipment to a disposal site. The DMSB is filled with type 4A molecular sieve pellets capable of adsorbing up to 1000 curies of tritium. The recombiner contains a sufficient amount of catalyst to cause any hydrogen add oxygen present in the process gas to recombine to form water vapor, which is then adsorbed onto the DMSB.

    Her recent work focuses on the concepts of abundance, excess and waste. These concerns translate directly into vibrant and colourful garlands that she constructs from discarded plastics collected on Bondi Beach where she lives. The process of collecting is fastidious, as is the process of sorting and grading the plastics by colour and size. This initial gathering and sorting process is followed by threading the components onto strings of wire. When completed, these assemblages stand in stark contrast to the ease of disposability associated with the materials that arrive on the shoreline as evidence of our collective human neglect and destruction of the environment around us. The contrast is heightened by the fact that the constructed garlands embody the paradoxical beauty of our plastic waste byproducts, while also evoking the ways by which those byproducts similarly accumulate in randomly assorted patterns across the oceans and beaches of the planet.

  10. Hazardous waste sites

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Hembra, R.L

    1989-01-01

    This report has found that while most states have accomplished few or no cleanups of sites contaminated by hazardous waste, some have enacted tough cleanup laws, committed relatively large resources to the cleanup effort, and achieved considerable results. At the 17 cleanup sites analyzed, state cleanup plans were generally stringent. However, no federal standards have been set for over half of the contaminants found at these sites. For 11 sites, the states set cleanup levels without doing formal risk assessments. Also, most states reviewed did not consider the full range of alternatives EPA requires. Most states have not shown that they can effectively clean up large, hazardous waste sites. This report recommends that EPA turn sites targeted for cleanup over to the states only if there are adequate controls and oversight.

    The basic concept within both EC funded SAPIERR I and SAPIERR II projects (FP6) is that of one or more geological repositories developed in collaboration by two or more European countries to accept spent nuclear fuel, vitrified high-level waste and other long-lived radioactive waste from those partner countries. The SAPIERR II project (Strategic Action Plan for Implementation of Regional European Repositories) examines in detail issues that directly influence the practicability and acceptability of such facilities. This paper describes the work in the SAPIERR II project (2006-2008) on the development of a possible practical implementation strategy for shared, regional repositories in Europe and lays out the first steps in implementing that strategy.

    These guidelines were prepared to aid offshore oil and gas operators in the management of waste materials related to petroleum drilling and production operations in offshore areas regulated by the Canada-Newfoundland and Labrador Offshore Petroleum Board (CNLOPB) and the Canada-Nova Scotia Offshore Petroleum Board (CNSOPB). A description of the relevant sections of the regulatory regime applicable to Canada's offshore oil and gas operations was included. Offshore operators are expected to take all reasonable measures to minimize the volumes of waste materials generated by their operations. The guidelines included recommendations for identifying, monitoring, and reporting discharges; performance expectations for specific discharges; requirements for greenhouse gas (GHG) and other air emissions; methods of characterizing and monitoring produced water, drilling muds, and desalination brine. Operational discharges associated with the installation and maintenance of subsea systems were also reviewed, and qualifications of analytical laboratories were presented. 24 refs., 2 appendices.

    1998-05-01

    At Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), the two main cooling tower systems (central and northwest) were upgraded during the summer of 1997 to reduce the generation of hazardous waste. In 1996, these two tower systems generated approximately 135,400 lbs (61,400 kg) of hazardous sludge, which is more than 90 percent of the hazardous waste for the site annually. At both, wet decks (cascade reservoirs) were covered to block sunlight. Covering the cascade reservoirs reduced the amount of chemical conditioners (e.g. algaecide and biocide), required and in turn the amount of waste generated was reduced. Additionally, at the northwest cooling tower system, a sand filtration system was installed to allow cyclical filtering and backflushing, and new pumps, piping, and spray nozzles were installed to increase agitation. the appurtenance upgrade increased the efficiency of the cooling towers. The sand filtration system at the northwest cooling tower system enables operators to continuously maintain the cooling tower water quality without taking the towers out of service. Operational costs (including waste handling and disposal) and maintenance activities are compared for the cooling towers before and after upgrades. Additionally, the effectiveness of the sand filter system in conjunction with the wet deck covers (northwest cooling tower system), versus the cascade reservoir covers alone (south cooling tower south) is discussed. the overall expected return on investment is calculated to be in excess of 250 percent. this upgrade has been incorporated into the 1998 DOE complex-wide water conservation project being led by Sandia National Laboratory/Albuquerque.

    The potential use of chemically modified mango waste is investigated in this article. Observations suggest that mango seed and peel are important raw materials for a number of industrial applications:- confectionery and chocolate industries, soft drink manufacturers, food processing, and textile and paper industries. Studies indicate that a high quality mango pectin can be obtained from mango peel. The wide availability, ease of collection and storage, will facilitate the establishment of small and medium size industries near mango processing plants. (Refs. 14).

Most of mine wastes are deposited on natural ground without artificial liners and capping for preventing contamination of groundwater around mine waste piles or containments. In case of some mine waste piles or containments, pollutants have been released to the environment, and several constituents in drainage exceed the limit of discharge from landfill site. Metals found in drainage exist in exchangeable fraction in waste rock and tailings. This means that if when it rains to mine waste containments, mine wastes can be pollutant to the environment by release of acidity and metals. As a result of simulation for hydraulic potentials and groundwater flow paths within the tailings, the simulated travel paths correlated well with the observed contaminant distribution. The plum disperse, both longitudinal and transverse dimensions, with time. Therefore liner system is a very important component in tailings containment system. As experimental results of liner development using tailings, tailings mixed with some portion of resin or cement may be used for liner because tailings with some additives have a very low hydraulic conductivity.

    Pollution of the environment components in many cases presents unacceptable risks to human health and the environment. Risk analysis is one of the tools which help to find a socially acceptable level of the environmental quality. Evaluation of the environmental impacts can be the base for the optimal spatial arrangement and functional use of territory - landscape optimization. In Slovakia, LANDEP methodology based on the principles of sustainable development, is very often used for landscape planning. The paper deals with environmental risk assessment of components of environment (air, water, soil, waste, etc.). The results are used as a base for design of the optimal spatial setting and functional utilization of the land - landscape optimization.

    Since the Fukushima accident, the nuclear debate, dominated by the ecologists, seems to be closed. This book opens again the discussion about sensible topics: safety of facilities, wastes management, steps and cost of power plants dismantling, relation between civil nuclear industry and proliferation, nuclear energy cost, etc. In this book, the author tones down the reasoning of the anti-nuclear movement and supplies the necessary information to the reader to let him evaluate himself the pros and cons of this energy source. In a future world dominated by energy shortage and global warming, this book aims at analysing the energy question with lucidity and courage

    Microbial communities in the soil were collected from 20 samples of an iron mining area (Ait Ammar, Oued Zem, Morocco), and unaffected samples were analysed to identify the effects of metal concentrations on functional diversity (Biolog® EcoPlates), and structural diversity (polymerase chain reaction-denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis of 16S rDNA). Aliivibrio fischeri is mainly used for evaluating polluted soil. The functional diversity was assessed by using such indices as area under substrate utilisation curve, richness, Shannon- Weaver and evenness indices. The analysis of similarities and the non-metric multidimensional scaling analyses of DGGE profiles showed that metals in the soil do not have a significant influence on bacteria. Principal component analysis of Biolog data revealed the similarity in the metabolic profiles of mining samples. These results suggest that the direction and the distance from the iron mine tailings do not have significant effects on the metabolic and structural diversity of the soil bacterial population. The toxicity of metals in soils heavily contaminated with Fe and P did not affect the quantities of microbial populations and did not significantly change the microbial diversity of contaminated soils.

    Full Text Available Este trabalho analisa os diferenciais por gênero de mortes violentas e outras agressões ocorridas na Bahia. No país, ê crescente a importância dos agravos externos no conjunto das causas de óbito. Ademais, os atos violentos tendem a pressionar a demanda por atendimentos de emergência nos serviços de saúde. Os dados empíricos foram coligidos na imprensa escrita, cobrindo todos os homicídios, tentativas de homicídio e estupros noticiados em 1989. A violência policial despontou como responsável pela morte de uma alta proporção de jovens do sexo masculino. Em seguida, as desavenças entre indivíduos considerados marginais ou os assassinatos atribuídos à "queima-de-arquivo". Com relação às mulheres, a dimensão quantitativa dos crimes é menor, mais difusa e resultante das relações familiares. Os estudos revisados apontam para a generalização do domínio masculino sobre a mulher na interpretação das reações violentas. Fazer resistência à ideologia de gênero que inferioriza a mulher significa, simultaneamente, evitar agressões e homicídios - uma tarefa complexa para a sociedade brasileira.

    Full Text Available No presente artigo, buscamos discutir como a noção de social é concebida pela Teoria Ator-Rede (TAR, bem como as possíveis contribuições desta concepção para a psicologia social. Para a TAR, ao invés de tomarmos o social como um domínio ou como o tipo de material que compõe determinados fenômenos, devemos questionar o projeto de dar uma “explicação social” a algum estado de coisas e resgatar o significado original do termo – que, timologicamente, está mais próximo de associações do que de vínculos sociais. Pensar uma psicologia social que parta dessa perspectiva implica pensar em uma psicologia que considera que os não-humanos têm agência e produzem efeitos no mundo, modificando nossas ações e nossos processos de atribuição de sentido

    Full Text Available Nul ne pourrait parler de la mystique musulmane sans parler de Rabia al Adawiyya, cette ascète qui vécut toute sa vie cherchant son propre salut. Sa vie entière fut marquée par un dévouement inégalable à l'amour Divin. Notre intervention portera donc sur cette notion de l'amour Divin dans la poésie de Rabia qui, à travers chaque vers, nous emporte dans un monde euphorique ou l'amour de Dieu terrasse l'amour humain. Notre but est de voir comment l'option pour le mysticisme fut pour Rabia la voie pour parvenir à l'élévation religieuse qui réunit l'amour humain à l'amour Divin créant ainsi cette symbiose exaltante qu'est l'union de la créature à son créateur.

Pour Massignon, langue et spiritualité étaient intimement liées. Si je devais me placer dans une perspective musulmane, je dirais que Louis Massignon se situe dans la ligne de la "wahdat al shuhûd", celle de "l'unicité du témoignage" ou Dieu se témoigne Lui-même en son mystère dans le cœur du soufi.

    Recently, the Hong-Ou-Mandel (HOM) interference between two independent weak coherent pulses (WCPs) has been paid much attention due to the measurement-device-independent (MDI) quantum key distribution (QKD). Using classical wave theory, articles reported before show that the visibility of this kind of HOM-type interference is ≤ 50%. In this work, we analyze this kind of interference using quantum optics, which reveals more details compared to the wave theory. Analyses confirm the maximum visibility of 50%. And we conclude that the maximum visibility of 50% comes from the two single-photon states in WCPs, without considering the noise. In the experiment, we successfully approach the visibility of 50% by using WCPs splitting from the single pico-second laser source and phase scanning. Since this kind of HOM interference is immune to slow phase fluctuations, both the realized and proposed experiment designs can provide stable ways of high-resolution optical distance detection.

    The marine intrusion of freshwater aquifers by salt water results in soil degradation due to their salinization. The present survey aims to study the position of the fresh water - salt water interface using electric sounding method in the region of Oued Nador (Tipaza, Algeria). It is important to know the position of this interface for the continuation of the aquifer exploitation. For this, we conducted, in this zone, seven electric soundings oriented north-west south-east, with Schlumberger electrodes configuration. The inversion of the apparent resistivity data via the IP2Win software allowed us to recover the true values of electrical resistivity. The exploitation of obtained data requires the implementation of a geo-electric section, and for the interpretation, the results of a standard electrical sounding, acquired near the study area, are used. The results of this geophysical study allowed us to locate the freshwater - salt water contact with resistivity values that can reach 50 ohm m for freshwater formation, and less than 10 ohm m for saturated saltwater formation. The depth of the contact between fresh water and salt water increases gradually from 38 m to 40 m near the coast, and this over a distance of 0 m to 500 m, and then rises abruptly beyond a distance of 500 m at the borehole N°3 where it reaches the maximum depth of 97 m. Key words: Electrical survey - Salt wedge - Electrical resistivity - Aquifer - Intrusion.

Para comparação, estudamos o ciclo evolutivo destes insetos numa colônia há muito mantida em insetário. Nossos resultados mostram um desenvolvimento mais rápido da colônia recém- estabelecida, assim como do lote de triatomíneos alimentado em camundongo. Esses achados sugerem menor potencial biológico para triatomíneos criados por longo tempo em insetário em comparação a novas colônias. Sendo as aves os principais habitantes das palmeiras, a aparente preferência alimentar por sangue de aves demonstrada pela reação de precipitina parece ser circunstancial e não seletiva na busca do sangue com o qual o triatomíneo obteria melhor desenvolvimento.

    This prepatory thesis is a literature study on the incineration of waste. It deals with the concepts of municipal solid waste, the composition and combustion of it. A main focus is on the European emission regulations and the formation of dioxins, as well as a big effort is put into the treatment of solid residues from municipal solid waste incineration. In the latter area, concepts of treatment, such as physical and chemical separations, solidification and stabilization techniques, thermal methods, and extraction methods have been discussed. Evaluation of possible methods of treatment has been done, but no conclusions made of which is the best. Though, indications exist that especially two methods have shown positive qualities and must be further investigated. These methods are the acid extraction and sulfide stabilization (AES) process and the phosphate stabilization method of WES-PHix. Economic potentials of the two methods have been evaluated, and with the information obtained, it seems that the price for treatment and later landfilling of a material with improved leaching characteristics, will be approximately the same as the presently most used solution of export to Norway. However, more tests, investigations and economic evaluations are necessary in order for support of the findings in this work. (au)

    Not much effort needed, just willpower In order to keep the cost of disposing of waste materials as low as possible, CERN provides two types of recipient at the entrance to each building: a green plastic one for paper/cardboard and a metal one for general refuse. For some time now we have noticed, to our great regret, a growing negligence as far as selective sorting is concerned, with, for example, the green recipients being filled with a mixture of cardboard boxes full of polystyrene or protective wrappers, plastic bottles, empty yogurts pots, etc. …We have been able to ascertain, after careful checking, that this haphazard mixing of waste cannot be attributed to the cleaning staff but rather to members of the personnel who unscrupulously throw away their rubbish in a completely random manner. Non-sorted waste entails heavy costs for CERN. For information, once a non-compliant item is found in a green recipient, the entire contents are sent off for incineration rather than recycling… We are all concerned...

Deux études par questionnaires portant sur la période de Vichy utilisant des associations de mots, des exercices visant à appréhender les connaissances historiques et différentes échelles d’opinion sur le « devoir de mémoire », ont été réalisées auprès d’une population tout venant d’une part et d’étudiants en psychologie d’autre part. Les résultats montrent que les représentations sont construites à partir de : 1 une relative pauvreté des connaissances historiques, 2 une centration sur quelques personnages, lieux et événements, 3 l’organisation à partir d’un lieu commun opposant les deux France, et 4 l’inscription déontique du souvenir. Ces résultats permettent de penser que ce lieu commun est doublé par des références axiologiques opposant le bien et le mal, ramenant les représentations de la période à la seule forme déontique de la mémoire : « se souvenir de ne pas oublier ». Enfin, la valeur exemplaire de cette représentation sera interrogée en tant qu’elle constitue une protection efficace de la répétition qu’elle est censée prévenir. C’est finalement la question de la fidélité au passé qui sera mise en rapport avec la transmission de la mémoire.There are several ways to conceive collective memory. Among them, it can be seen as a re-presentation of the past or as a social representation of History (Viaud, 2003.
