Et si le cinéma était d'abord un art chorégraphique ? Depuis toujours, sa préoccupation principale était l'invention de nouveaux agencements de corps et la recherche de nouveaux montages de mouvements. Mais l'idéologie de la mise en scène, venue du théâtre, a rendu cette préoccupation invisible. Pour la rendre à nouveau vivante, c'est toute lhistoire du cinéma qu'il faut relire à l'aune de la chorégraphie : passer du Kino-Glaz (« Ciné-il ») de Vertov à un nouveau Kino-Tanz (« Ciné-Corps » ou « Ciné-Danse »). De Fernand Léger à Michel Gondry, de Georges Méliès à David Lynch, de Pinocchio à Gene Kelly ou de Norman McLaren à Quentin Tarantino, le cinéma n'a jamais cessé de danser. Cest ce que démontre Dick Tomasovic, le plus original des théoriciens du cinéma d'aujourdhui, en onze chapitres qui sont eux-mêmes onze pas de deux, à la fois sidérants et aériens, où s'expérimentent tous les passages de l'idéologie de la mise en scène à l'idéal de la chorégraphie. Il y propose un vocabulaire inouï, bouleversant la manière que nous avions de regarder les films : un vocabulaire qui met au premier plan le rythme et la cadence, le flux et la fluidité, la reprise et la répétition, la mémoire musculaire, la transe et l'extase, le solo et le spectateur, etc. [less ▲]

Since the second Indochina war, habitat destruction and overhunting has resulted in fragmentation of the remaining populations of Bos javanicus and B. gaurus. Nowadays, both species are in serious danger, especially the gaur. In Vietnam, where these species have become almost impossible to capture in the wild, non-invasive investigations are the only feasible approach to obtain data on populations. However, non-invasive derived DNA, especially in tropical areas, is usually characterized by low concentrations, poor quality and/or contamination from alien DNA. To assist in tropical conservation management, baseline information is provided here on assessing the reliability of species identification, molecular sexing and microsatellite genotyping using fecal DNA from B. gaurus and B. javanicus. For species identification using bovine fecal samples, cytochrome b fragment between positions 867 and 1140 was found to contain species diagnostic sites, which distinguishes the four species encountered in the region: B. gaurus, B. indicus, B. javanicus and B. taurus. For sex determination, primers were initially tested on DNA obtained from blood. Then, these primers were successfully used on DNA derived from fecal material. Finally, we also evaluate the feasibility of non-invasive microsatellite genotyping on fecal samples collected in Vietnamese nature reserves. The results presented here improve on current molecular methods based on fecal material obtained from tropical areas. [less ▲]

The effect of feed containing cassava leafs and peels was assessed on 126 local guinea fowls animal performance, production costs and meat quality over a period of 28 weeks in humid tropical climate of the South Benin. After 12 weeks of classical feeding, animals were randomly allotted in three groups of 42 for the finishing period: the group 1 received a control diet while, in group 2, 8% and 35 % of cassava leafs and cossets were respectively incorporated, vs. 6 % and 25 % in group 3. At the end of the trial, eighteen guinea fowls per group were slaughtered in order to determine characteristics of the carcass and meat quality. Individual daily feed intake was higher in the control group than in the groups 2 and 3. Animals from control group shown higher growth rate (5.0 g/d) (P<0.05) than in groups 2 and 3. Consequently, feed conversion ratios were similar in the three groups with values of 7.5, 6.7 and 6.9, in groups 1, 2 and 3, respectively. At the end of the trial, animals in control group were heavier than those in groups 2 and 3 (P<0.05). No negative influence of cassava cossets and leaf meals was observed on carcass quality in the experimental diets. Feed costs per kg live weight were reduced by 24.6 and 21.0% in groups 2 and 3, respectively, when compared to control group. Guinea fowl production appears thus more profitable with feed containing cassava leaves and cossets. Consequently, these ingredients could be alternative sources of energy and protein, with emphasis during the finishing period. [less ▲]

We report a systematic comparison of various exchange-correlation functionals for the prediction of the structural, magnetic, electronic, and dynamical (phonons and Born effective charge tensors) properties of bismuth ferrite, a prototypical multiferroic compound. We have not only considered the usual approximations to density-functional theory such as the local-density approximation (LDA), generalized (GGA), and LDA+U, but also hybrid approaches such as B3LYP and B1. The recent B1-WC hybrid functional of Bilc [Phys. Rev. B 77, 165107 (2008)], with the GGA functional of Wu and Cohen and an exact exchange mixing parameter of 0.16, provides very good overall agreement with experiments and can be considered as a valuable alternative to LDA, GGA, and DFT+U for the study of bismuth ferrite. This does not only allow a reliable interpretation of the physical properties of this specific compound but also opens perspectives for further and more predictive first-principles investigations of multiferroic materials.

Summary Background The primary end-point in the management of asthma is to obtain optimal control. The aim of this study was to assess the relationships between the markers of airway inflammation (sputum eosinophilia and exhaled nitric oxide), bronchial hyperresponsiveness (BHR) and asthma control. Methods One hundred and thirty-four patients were recruited from our asthma clinic between January 2004 and September 2005 [mean age: 42 years, mean forced expiratory volume in 1 s (FEV(1)): 86% predicted]. Eighty-six of them were treated by inhaled corticosteroids, 99 were atopic and 23 were current smokers. They all underwent detailed investigations including fractional-exhaled nitric oxide (FE(NO)) measurement, sputum induction and methacholine challenge when FEV(1) was >70% predicted, and filled in a validated asthma control questionnaire (ACQ6 Juniper). Results When dividing patients into the three groups according to their level of asthma control determined by ACQ [well-controlled asthma (ACQ score </=0.75), borderline (0.75<ACQ score <1.5) and uncontrolled asthma (ACQ score >/=1.5)], it appeared that uncontrolled asthmatics had a greater BHR to methacholine and sputum eosinophilia than controlled asthma (P<0.05, P<0.001, respectively). By contrast, we failed to show significant differences in the FE(NO) levels between the groups. With receiver-operating characteristic curves for differentiating uncontrolled (ACQ>/=1.5) from controlled and borderline (ACQ<1.5) asthma, sputum eosinophilia and methacholine responsiveness were found to be more accurate than FE(NO) (area under the curve: 0.72, 0.72 and 0.59, respectively). Conclusion In a broad spectrum of asthmatics encountered in clinical practice, sputum eosinophilia and methacholine bronchial hyperresponsiveness, but not FE(NO), are associated with uncontrolled asthma.

The objective of this study was to see whether a mathematical model of fracture healing was able to mimic bone formation around an unloaded screw-shaped titanium implant as it is well-believed that both processes exhibit many biological similarities. This model describes the spatio-temporal evolution of cellular activities, ranging from mesenchymal stem cell migration, proliferation, differentiation to bone formation, which are initiated and regulated by the growth factors present at the peri-implant site. For the simulations, a finite volume code was used and adequate initial and boundary conditions were applied. Two sets of analyses have been performed, in which either initial and boundary condition or model parameter values were changed with respect to the fracture healing model parameter values. For a number of combinations, the spatio-temporal evolution of bone density was well-predicted. However reducing cell proliferation rate and increasing osteoblast differentiation and osteogenic growth factor synthesis rates, the simulation results were in agreement with the experimental data.

Establishing the osteoarticular status of the horse is often performed by means of radiological screening of the animals. Widespread blood sampling could reveal to be an interesting alternative to this procedure which is time consuming and sometimes technically difficult. The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between the radiological status of the horses and the levels of biochemical markers of cartilage degradation and synovial inflammation. A specific radiological scoring and classification system was therefore developed and applied on 63 stallions presented for studbook admission. Additionally, groups of horses were established according to the occurrence of osteochondrosis, degenerative joint disease and distal interphalangeal joint effusion. Insulin growth factor-I, myeloperoxidases, Coll2-1 and Coll2-1NO2 were used as blood markers. The combination of the blood parameters did not seem to correlate with the used scoring system. Coll2-1NO2 levels however tended to increase with poorer radiological class and this could therefore potentially be a useful predictor of the osteoarticular status in the horse. Coll2-1 levels were significantly higher in the degenerative joint disease group. A high percentage of horses with distal interphalangeal joint effusion was present in this study and was associated with decreased IGF-I and increased Coll2 [less ▲]

We put-sue the Study of the multiscale spaces S-v introduced by Jaffard in the context of multifractal analysis. We give the necessary and Sufficient condition for S-v to be locally p-convex, and exhibit a sequence of p-norms that defines its natural topology. The strong topological dual of S-v is identified to another sequence space depending on v, endowed with an inductive limit topology. As a particular case, we describe the dual of a countable intersection of Besov spaces. (C) 2007 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved. [less ▲]
