The documentaries of Werner Herzog and Alexander Kluge, especially in the space they leave for the spectator, demonstrate how much their approaches and conceptions of film are divergent and irreconcilable. Nevertheless, the art of both these authors have something in common that has rarely been examined by analysts who have dedicated their work to both filmmakers. More than radical subjectivity (Herzog) or the aim of a visual reorganization of the subjective perception of the spectator (Kluge), a complex figure, and its perception by the spectator, are at the roots of their documentary practice. We call this figure the cinéaste. [less ▲]

BACKGROUND: The Full Outline of UnResponsiveness (FOUR) has been proposed as an alternative for the Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS)/Glasgow Liege Scale (GLS) in the evaluation of consciousness in severely brain-damaged patients. We compared the FOUR and GLS/GCS in intensive care unit patients who were admitted in a comatose state. METHODS: FOUR and GLS evaluations were performed in randomized order in 176 acutely (<1 month) brain-damaged patients. GLS scores were transformed in GCS scores by removing the GLS brainstem component. Inter-rater agreement was assessed in 20% of the studied population (N = 35). A logistic regression analysis adjusted for age, and etiology was performed to assess the link between the studied scores and the outcome 3 months after injury (N = 136). RESULTS: GLS/GCS verbal component was scored 1 in 146 patients, among these 131 were intubated. We found that the inter-rater reliability was good for the FOUR score, the GLS/GCS. FOUR, GLS/GCS total scores predicted functional outcome with and without adjustment for age and etiology. 71 patients were considered as being in a vegetative/unresponsive state based on the GLS/GCS. The FOUR score identified 8 of these 71 patients as being minimally conscious given that these patients showed visual pursuit. CONCLUSIONS: The FOUR score is a valid tool with good inter-rater reliability that is comparable to the GLS/GCS in predicting outcome. It offers the advantage to be performable in intubated patients and to identify non-verbal signs of consciousness by assessing visual pursuit, and hence minimal signs of consciousness (11% in this study), not assessed by GLS/GCS scales.

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The clinical picture of hand atrophy related to a cervical rib or elongated C7 transverse process was well described in the modern literature by Gilliatt and Sumner; in 1970, they reported a series of nine patients whose motor status was stabilized following brachial plexus decompression. We report here seven patients suffering from thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS), who developed hand atrophy, sometimes because of diagnostic delay. METHODS: The patient's charts were analysed retrospectively. RESULTS: The seven patients were all female; the mean age was 43 years. The first complaints were arm pain and paresthesias lasting six months to 5 years. Three patients were treated with C56/C67 discectomy plus disc prosthesis (one patient), ulnar neurolysis at the elbow (the same patient), carpal tunnel release (one patient), and intravenous immunoglobulins (one patient) before TOS diagnosis. Hand atrophy, severe in five patients, was present at presentation. All patients underwent brachial plexus decompression by the anterior (four), posterior (two), or transaxillary (one) approach. This last approach was completed 18 months later by brachial plexus neurolysis via the anterior approach. Postoperatively, motor deficit was improved in two patients and stabilized in five patients. CONCLUSIONS: Physicians' unfamiliarity with TOS diagnosis or their reluctance to accept the diagnosis without electrical confirmation can lead to hand atrophy. Brachial plexus decompression at this stage usually stabilizes the deficit. [less ▲]

We conducted a survey to determine how two professional sectors in Belgium, horticulture professionals and nature reserve managers (those directly involved in conservation), view the issues associated with invasive plant species. We developed and utilized a questionnaire that addressed the themes of awareness, concept and use of language, availability of information, impacts and, finally, control and available solutions. Using co-inertia analyses, we tested to what extent the perception of invasive alien species (IAS) was dependent upon the perception of Nature in general. Only forty-two percent of respondent horticulture professionals and eighty-two percent of nature reserve managers had a general knowledge of IAS. Many individuals in both target groups nonetheless had an accurate understanding of the scientific issues. Our results therefore suggest that the manner in which individuals within the two groups view, or perceive, the IAS issue was more the result of lack of information than simply biased perceptions of target groups. Though IAS perceptions by the two groups diverged, they were on par with how they viewed Nature in general. The descriptions of IAS by participants converged with the ideas and concepts frequently found in the scientific literature. Both managers and horticulture professionals expressed a strong willingness to participate in programs designed to prevent the spread of, and damage caused by, IAS. Despite this, the continued commercial availability of many invasive species highlighted the necessity to use both mandatory and voluntary approaches to reduce their re-introduction and spread. The results of this study provide stakeholders and conservation managers with practical information on which communication and management strategies can be based. [less ▲]

INTRODUCTION: Squatting is an active posture test that can be used to assess baroreflex sensitivity. Indeed, the shift from squatting to standing imposes a major orthostatic stress leading to rapid and large changes in arterial blood pressure (BP) and heart rate (HR) allowing precise baroreflex assessment. MATERIAL AND METHODS: BP and HR can be continuously and non-invasively monitored with a Finapres device. RESULTS: The standing to squatting transition is accompanied by rises in BP, pulse pressure and cardiac output, mainly due to increased venous return, and by a secondary reduction in HR. Conversely, the squatting to standing transition is associated with an immediate drop in BP and both reflex tachycardia and vasoconstriction. This mirror changes in BP and HR, mimicking those observed with the classical pharmacological approach using vasopressor/vasodilating agents, allows the calculation of the so-called baroreflex gain. DISCUSSION: The present review describes the haemodynamic changes occurring in normal subjects during the shifts from standing to squatting and from squatting to standing and discusses the underlying cardiovascular and autonomic mechanisms. CONCLUSION: This careful analysis in healthy individuals should help in the understanding of disturbances that may be observed in patients with autonomic dysfunction, such as in diabetic patients with cardiovascular autonomic neuropathy.

During the All Taxa Biodiversity Inventory + Monitoring programme (ATBI+M) in the Mercantour and Alpi Marittime National Parks, our inventories of bryophytes identified 234 taxa (mosses and liverworts). This work completes the previous field campaigns, notably those of Jean-Pierre Hebrard (I MEP, Marseille) since 1965, and the ATBI bryophyte inventories in 2007. This number is based on four days of inventories in the central and peripheric territory of both National Parks, in four days in July and August 2010, together with previous data the 565 taxa known from the area still underestimate the number of species actually present. Our observations in 2010 added several new species for this area, including several rare and remarkable species such as Haplomitrium hookeri or species listed under the Habitats Directive as Buxbaumia viridis and Orthotrichum rogeri. Given the rarity of their habitats species from snow beds, large block boulders and high altitude wetlands are most remarkable. [less ▲]

L'objectif de cette communication est de présenter un aperçu des essais et erreurs que nous avons fait lors de nos deux premières années de thèse afin de concilier le niveau micro-sociologique (interactionniste) avec une échelle plus méso et macro. Après être successivement tombés dans le piège de la démesure empirique puis de la fuite en avant théorique, nous avons finalement réussi à mieux articuler les différents niveaux en choisissant le processus de légitimation comme "centre de gravité" de notre recherche.

Nous développons un modèle dans lequel les travailleurs peuvent avoir tendance à trop travailler quand ils sont jeunes, parce qu’ils ne peuvent ou ne veulent pas voir les conséquences que cela peut avoir sur leur santé et sur leur capacité à travailler longtemps. Pour les obliger à mieux répartir leurs efforts sur leur cycle de vie, une taxe sur les revenus du travail en début de vie et une subvention de l’épargne sont souhaitables. Si la subvention de l’épargne n’est pas disponible, la taxe optimale arbitre entre quatre considérations différentes. Nous étudions également la taxe optimale quand les individus diffèrent en productivité. [less ▲]
