In Egypt, high temperatures, humidity and dusty hot winds lead to excessive discomfort for people. Contemporary designers do not integrate landscape architecture as a way to improve the micro climate of the outdoor built environment, in addition to the inappropriate use of energy resources ,while in Egypt’s hot arid climates, it is essential to ameliorate the microclimate in an energy efficient way. Landscape architects must fully understand that Egypt has one of the harshest and most limiting environments on earth. Therefore, the role of landscape architect is essential in creating a more favourable outdoor environment for people with regard to their inner living space: adequate shade, cooler temperatures, light breezes, protection from glare and wind blown sand. The main aim of this thesis was to provide landscape architects with design principals and design guidelines to improve the microclimate and conserve energy in Egypt. The thesis could be described as horizontal overview that describes historical and recent design solutions that tackle with the problem of aridity and resources scarcity. The research was guided by a design problem that was intended to steer the research in order to come out with the knowledge needed in correspondence to the design problem. The location of the case study or design was in Egypt’s eastern desert and the selection was made based in the aridity and harshness of the project location. This study was divided into 6 parts: (1) Research Design, (2) Background, (3) Lessons from historical landscape design examples, (4) Contemporary Landscape design principals and guidelines, (5) Case Study and (6) Conclusion.

The high-pressure behavior of Ga2O3 is studied up to 40 GPa using synchrotron x-ray diffraction and Raman spectroscopy in diamond anvil cells. A phase transformation from the monoclinic beta-phase (C2/m) is observed at a pressure above 20-22 GPa. The high-pressure polymorph is identified as the alpha-phase that is isostructural with corundum (R (3) over barc symmetry) from the x-ray diffraction data. However, considerable anion disorder is indicated by the appearance of broad bands in the Raman spectra. The experimental results are complemented by ab initio theoretical calculations of the energetics of the two structures and the lattice dynamics. [less ▲]

The space mission PEGASE, proposed to the CNES (Centre National d'Etudes Spatiales = French Space Agency) in the framework of its call for scientific proposals : "formation flying missions", is a 2-aperture interferometer, composed by 3 free flying satellites (2 siderostats and 1 beam combiner), allowing baselines from 50 to 500 m in both nulling and visibility modes. With an angular resolution of a few mas and a spectral resolution of several tens in the spectral range 2.5-5 microns, PEGASE has several goals:science : spectroscopy of hot jupiters (Pegasides) and brown dwarves, exploration of the inner part of protoplanetary diskstechnology : validation in real space conditions of formation flying, nulling and visibility interferometry concepts.PEGASE has been studied at a 0-level. In this paper, we summarize the scientific program and associated technological and mission trade-off coming from this 0-level study. We also discuss how PEGASE can be considered as a TPF/DARWIN pathfinder in an international roadmap towards more complex space interferometry missions such as DARWIN/TPF. [less ▲]

In this paper, a new finite element method is described and applied. It is based on a theory developed to model poromechanical problems where the mechanical part is obeying a second gradient theory. The aim of such a work is to properly model the post localized behaviour of soils and rocks saturated with a pore fluid. Beside the development of this new Coupled theory, a corresponding finite element method has been developed. The elements used are based on a weak form of the relation between the deformation gradient and the second gradient, using a field of Lagrange multipliers. The global problem is solved by a system of equations where the kinematic variables are fully coupled with the pore pressure. Some numerical experiments showing the effectiveness of the method ends the paper. Copyright (c) 2005 John Wiley [less ▲]

Proneural proteins play a central role in vertebrate neurogenesis, but little is known of the genes that they regulate and of the factors that interact with proneural proteins to activate a neurogenic program. Here, we demonstrate that the proneural protein Mash1 and the POU proteins Brn1 and Brn2 interact on the promoter of the Notch ligand Delta1 and synergistically activate Delta1 transcription, a key step in neurogenesis. Overexpression experiments in vivo indicate that Brn2, like Mash1, regulates additional aspects of neurogenesis, including the division of progenitors and the differentiation and migration of neurons. We identify by in silico screening a number of additional candidate target genes, which are recognized by Mash1 and Brn proteins through a DNA-binding motif similar to that found in the Delta1 gene and present a broad range of activities. We thus propose that Mash1 synergizes with Brn factors to regulate multiple steps of neurogenesis. [less ▲]

The generation of new neurons in the cerebral cortex requires that progenitor cells leave the cell cycle and activate specific programs of differentiation and migration. Genetic studies have identified some of the molecules controlling these cellular events, but how the different aspects of neurogenesis are integrated into a coherent developmental program remains unclear. One possible mechanism implicates multifunctional proteins that regulate, both cell cycle exit and cell differentiation.(1) A prime example is the cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor p27(Kip1), which has recently been shown to function beyond cell cycle regulation and promote both neuronal differentiation and migration of newborn cortical neurons, through distinct and separable mechanisms. p27(Kip1) is therefore part of a machinery that couples the multiple events of neurogenesis in the cerebral cortex.

Mossbauer-effect and microwave absorption experimental evidence unambiguously demonstrates the presence of slow, similar to 450 MHz, tunneling of magnetic europium between four equivalent sites in Eu8Ga16Ge30, a stoichiometric clathrate. Remarkably, six of the eight europium atoms, or 11% of the constituents in this solid, tunnel between these four sites separated by 0.55 angstrom. The off centering of the atoms or ions in crystalline clathrates appears to be a promising route for producing Rabi oscillators in solid-state materials. [less ▲]

Thirty-six young fattening bulls from three breeds (Belgian Blue, Limousin and Aberdeen Angus) were fattened over 5 months with fattening diets based either on sugar-beet pulp or on cereals. Fattening performance as well as carcass and meat characteristics were measured. There were few relevant effects of the diets on the parameters. The breeds also showed similar fattening features. However, the BB had higher killing-out proportion and their carcasses presented better scores in terms of conformation and fattening. The meat quality of the breeds differed, especially in terms of luminosity, redness and cooking losses. There were also significant influences of breed on the chemical composition of meat; fat content was lowest in Belgian Blue and highest in Aberdeen Angus. Such specificities could help to allocate breeds in appropriate niches in Belgium. [less ▲]

La formation suivra un double objectif : d'une part, les conceptions actuelles du fonctionnement mnésique et attentionnel seront présentées, en mettant particulièrement l'accent sur les données obtenues auprès de patients cérébro-lésés; d'autre part, la logique générale de l'évaluation neuropsychologique des difficultés mnésiques et attentionnelles sera abordée. Notre objectif sera donc de montrer en quoi la neuropsychologie a contribué à notre compréhension des mécanismes de mémoire et d’attention. Par ailleurs, l’influence qu’ont pu avoir tous ces travaux sur les pratiques cliniques en (neuro)psychologie (et en particulier en neuropsychologie de l’enfant) sera également soulignée. La formation s’appuiera très largement sur des illustrations et sur la présentation de cas concrets. Des questions pratiques intéressant directement les psychologues de PMS seront également abordées (quelles informations sur la mémoire et l’attention peut-on tirer d’un profil de WISC ? quand faut-il envisager d’orienter un enfant vers une consultation spécialisée en neuropédiatrie ou en neuropsychologie ?, etc.). Au terme de cette formation, dont l’objectif n’est en aucun cas de procurer des « recettes » et autres ficelles applicables telles quelles dans la classe ou le milieu scolaire, le participant devrait être à même de poser un regard plus nuancé et plus averti sur les difficultés de mémoire et d’attention que peut présenter un enfant, et de disposer ainsi de meilleures bases pour décider de la nature du suivi ou de l’orientation à proposer.
