This paper deals firstly with a revisiting of Darwin's theory of Natural Selection. Darwin in his book never uses the word “evolution”, but shows a clear position about mutability of species. Darwin's Natural Selection was mainly inspired by the anticipatory Artificial Selection by humans in domestication, and the Malthus struggle for existence. Darwin showed that the struggle for existence leads to the preservation of the most divergent offspring of any one species. He cited several times the canon of “Natura non facit saltum”. He spoke about the origin of life from some one primordial form, into which life was first breathed. Finally, Darwin made anticipation about the future researches in psychology. This paper cites the work of Ernst Mayr who was the first, after 90 years of an intense scientific debate, to present a new and stable Darwinian paradigm as the “Evolutionary Synthesis” in 1942. To explain what is life, the Living Systems Theory (LST) by J. G. Miller is presented. It is showed that the Autopoietic Systems Theory of Varela et al is also a fundamental component of living systems. In agreement with Darwin, the natural selection is a necessary condition for transformation of biological systems, but is not a sufficient condition. Thus, in this paper we conjecture that an anticipatory evolutionary mechanism exists with the genetic code that is a self-replicating and self-modifying anticipatory program. As demonstrated by Nobel laureate McClintock, evolution in genomes is programmed. The word “program” comes from “pro-gram” meaning to write before, by anticipation, and means a plan for the programming of a mechanism, or a sequence of coded instructions that can be inserted into a mechanism, or a sequence of coded instructions, as genes of behavioural responses, that is part of an organism. For example, cell death may be programmed by what is called the apoptosis. This definitively is a great breakthrough in our understanding of biological evolution. Hence, it is possible to formulate a new principle of evolution, i.e. the principle of Double Anticipatory Loop (DAL) of evolution: Biological evolution is driven by interaction between a mindless environment that is passively selecting the fittest inhabitants and purposeful anticipatory living systems, which are actively selecting and creating their own environment. Evolution on the genome level is trigged by environmental stress but guided by an inherent program. [less ▲]

The press and literature have played an important role in the Africa of the independences. They were used as forums through what the intellectual elite expressed its ideological struggle of independence. Sometimes it was found a co-penetration of the two instruments, so that the authors of literature were those that animated the press and vice versa. This co-influence is particularly manifested by a transposition of the usual categories of a support on another. In our study, we examine the different forms that have taken such transfers. [less ▲]

Angiogenesis is a hallmark of tumours. The newly formed tumour vessels are structurally and functionally abnormal leading to tumour perfusion heterogeneities and subsequently to the development of hypoxic areas. Generally, tumour hypoxia refers to an increasing distance between vasculature and tumour cells (i.e. chronic hypoxia). Chronic hypoxia promotes tumour resistance to treatments and metastasis. The temporal aspect of hypoxia is completely neglected in chronic hypoxia. Intermittent hypoxia (HI) takes the transient and temporal aspect of hypoxia into account. HI is defined as pO2 fluctuations in tumour vessels secondary to transient arrest of tumour blood flow. IH extends the concept of tumour hypoxia to tumour vessels and vascular cells. Transient arrest of tumour blood flow promotes tumour resistance to radio- and chemotherapy treatments and favours metastasis. Moreover, IH protects tumour vessels and endothelial cells against pro-apoptotic stresses and promotes angiogenesis. A comprehensive dissection of the mechanisms leading to IH allows the development and establishment of new therapeutic approaches. [less ▲]

Monoterpenoid emissions from Fagus sylvatica L trees have been measured at light- and temperature-controlled conditions in a growth chamber, using Proton Transfer Reaction Mass Spectrometry (PTR-MS) and the dynamic branch enclosure technique. De novo synthesized monoterpenoid Standard Emission Factors, obtained by applying the G97 algorithm (Guenther, 1997), varied between 2 and 32 mu g g(-1)DW h(-1) and showed a strong decline in late August and September, probably due to senescence. The response of monoterpenoid emissions to temperature variations at a constant daily light pattern could be well reproduced with a modified version of the MEGAN algorithm (Guenther et al., 2006), with a typical dependence on the average temperature over the past five days. The diurnal emissions at constant temperature showed a typical hysteretic behaviour, which could also be adequately described with the modified MEGAN algorithm by taking into account a dependence on the average light levels experienced by the trees during the past 10-13 h. The impact of the past light and temperature conditions on the monoterpenoid emissions from E sylvatica L was found to be much stronger than assumed in previous algorithms. Since our experiments were conducted under low light intensity, future studies should aim at confirming and completing the proposed algorithm updates in sunny conditions and natural environments.

ExtraCorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO) is a cardiopulmonary assistance device able to support patients in cardiac arrest, refractory cardiogenic shock or refractory hypoxemia otherwise sentenced to death. Recent technical progresses, early indication decision, bedside multidisciplinary implant, specific complications screening and echocardiographic weaning testing are crucial points to allow success of this exceptional technique.
