Nowadays Chemist are request to construct more and more complex architectures bearing multifunctionalities enable to respond to external stimuli. The construction of such complex architectures will be addressed through strong interplay in chemical science, as proposed recently with the concept of integrative Chemistry.[1] We synthesized PVA/ZnO-nanorods composite fibers using co-axial flux extrusion.[2] These fibers exhibit higher anisotropic photonic properties, both in absorption and emission, as a result of the collective alignment of the ZnO nanorods along the main axis of the PVA fiber. This photonic anisotropy is triggered by a synergistic interaction between the PVA matrix, stretched above Tg, and cooled down under strain. Compared with non-elongated fibers that present an isotropic emission, composite fibers previously submitted to a tensile stress absorb selectively UV emission when the polarized laser beam is parallel to the main axis of the fiber. In addition, their photolumincescence is also anisotropic, with a waveguide behavior along the main axis of the fiber. Mechanical properties of these composite fibers are also drastically improved, compared with pure PVA fibers: the longitudinal Young modulus of these fibers is increased from 2 to 6 GPa upon ZnO addition, a value similar to those already observed for composite fibers, prepared either with carbon nanotubes, or Vanadium Oxide macroscopic fibers.

As a narrative pattern and a cultural motif, the confusion between fictional worlds and reality traditionally leads to metaphysical arguments about liberty and destiny. Despite their drawing heavily on scientific imagination and technoscientific artefacts, science fiction movies exploring that theme never really broke with the way it has been treated since Calderon de la Barca’s Life is a dream: the hero’s quest leads him to doubt his own identity and dispute the ontological status of the world he lives in, leaving him and the viewer perplexed as to the ultimate nature of things. Yet, in the last fifteen years, an increasing number of science-fiction movies renewed that interrogation, notably by placing the issue of design at the centre of the plot: fictional worlds are not only denounced as fictional, but also shown as works in progress, literally rebuilt according to the plan of not-so-hidden designers acting as demiurges. In Dark City, Vanilla Sky or, more recently, Inception and The Adjustment Bureau, the emphasis on design and architecture together with the use of computational metaphors result in the promotion of one particular world to the status of “reference” universe, to be held as more “real” than other, fabricated and computed worlds made accessible by sophisticated devices operating as metaleptic instruments (such as Neo’s cable plug or the “bio-ports” in ExistenZ). This paper wishes to explore this shift towards “gnostic", Matrix-like science-fictional narratives, particularly in relation to the dramatic development of networking and surveillance capabilities that occurred during the same period.

It is now clear that non-consciously perceived stimuli can bias our decisions. Although previous researches highlighted the importance of automatic and unconscious processes involved in voluntary action, the neural correlates of such processes remain unclear. Basal ganglia dysfunctions have long been associated with impairment in automatic motor control. In addition, a key role of the medial frontal cortex has been suggested by administrating a subliminal masked prime task to a patient with a small lesion restricted to the supplementary motor area (SMA). In this task, invisible masked arrows stimuli were followed by visible arrow targets for a left or right hand response at different interstimuli intervals (ISI), producing a traditional facilitation effect for compatible trials at short ISI and a reversal inhibitory effect at longer ISI. Here, by using fast event-related fMRI and a weighted parametric analysis, we showed BOLD related activity changes in a cortico-subcortical network, especially in the SMA and the striatum, directly linked to the individual behavioral pattern. This new imaging result corroborates previous works on subliminal priming using lesional approaches. This finding implies that one of the roles of these regions was to suppress a partially activated movement below the threshold of awareness. [less ▲]

Although karstic weathering (sensu lato) is a major concern for the exploitation of limestone quarries, the importance, spatial extension, and intensity of this natural phenomenon are rarely investigated because of the lack of applicable technique to assess these variables other than subsurface geophysical exploration methods. Here, we propose to use the intrinsic property of ghost-rock weathering, tectonic control, to predict the degree and type of weathering of the reserve of two contiguous limestone quarries in the Tournai area (western Belgium). First, we revised the macrotectonic setting of these quarries, creating five tectonic entities. Then, we built an extensive fracture database (1357 ‘events’), recording fracture direction, dip, width, height, mineralization, and weathering. Then, we calculated a “Sterile Index” that is a simple function of the relative occurrence and mean width of karstified fractures. The rose diagrams of fracture orientations are contrasted between tectonic entities and so are the intensity and the dominant type of weathering: tectonic entities with widely dispersed fracture directions are significantly more weathered than entities with narrowly dispersed rose diagrams. Preliminary tests indicate fracture orientation and weathering are consistent within the tectonic entities, allowing extrapolation to quarries reserves. Ultimately, this technique can be used to predict the rock waste volume of the quarries reserves (when combined with geophysical exploration methods) and manage the development of the quarries accordingly.

This symposium proposes presentations related to nurse educators competencies and the challenges links to their new roles. The evolution of the nurses training at the European level asks the teacher to develop high-level disciplinary skills but also educational skills. There are lots of challenges to develop nurse educator competencies. The role of the teachers is not any more to transmit disciplinary knowledge but to become experts in group management, colleagues teamwork, reflective practice, and construction of active learning situations in a socio constructivist model. These changes of roles also have an impact on the professional identity of the teachers. The various presentations will approach successively these ideas: 1. A proposal for a Competencies Benchmarking of Nurse Educators The aim of this presentation is to characterize the nursing teachers concepts on their professionalism,roles, competences and their identities construction. 2. Educational knowledge in teaching in nursing This presentation examine the teachers conceptions about teaching nursing and professional knowledge about teaching in higher education. 3. Construction of teaching/learning to care from the perspective of nursing teacher This presentation analyses the facilities and difficulties of nurse teacher in their role. 4.

The submarine part of the North Anatolian Fault (NAF) is a very significant hazard for the 12 million people living in Istanbul (Turkey). An accurate seismic risk assessment necessitates paleoseismological data, which can be retrieved in the Marmara Sea by using sedimentary cores. We present here a record of turbidites obtained in cores spanning the Tekirdag ̆ Basin, the Western High, the Central Basin, and the Cinarcik Basin. In the Tekirdag and Western High the turbidites are synchronous pointing to shaking by earthquakes as a triggering mechanism. Generally seismoturbidites in the Marmara Sea are distinguished from other turbidites based in their large extension, their particular granulometric and their particular geochemical characteristics. The 210Pb and 137Cs radionucleides measurements have also shown that the M=7.4 1912 Mürefte earthquake and the M=7.3 1894 Prince's Island earthquake have left a distinctive sedimentary imprint at the top of the studied cores. The chronology of other seismoturbidites is built combining radiocarbon dating and secular variation patterns of paleo-declination and paleo-inclination. Finally the obtained record is compared to the historical seismicity record. [less ▲]

There are currently only six known high mass X-­‐ray binaries (HMXBs) that also exhibit MeV, GeV, and/or TeV emission ("gamma-­‐ray binaries"). Expanding the sample of gamma-­‐ray binaries and identifying unknown Fermi sources are currently of great interest to the community. Based upon their positional coincidence with the unidentified Fermi sources 1FGL J1127.7-­‐6244c and 1FGL J1808.5-­‐1954c, the Be stars HD 99771 and HD 165783 have been proposed as gamma-­‐ray binary candidates. During Fermi Cycle 4, we have performed multiwavelength observations of these sources using XMM-­‐Newton and the CTIO 1.5m telescope. We do not confirm high energy emission from the Be stars. Here we examine other X-­‐ray sources in the X-­‐ray sources in the field of view that are potential counterparts to the Fermi sources. [less ▲]

La diplomacia pública es una actividad de comunicación política internacional en cuya práctica destaca Estados Unidos por ser el país donde primero se desarrolla e institucionaliza. Después del decaimiento posterior a la Guerra Fría, la diplomacia pública de este país experimentó una renovada importancia tras los atentados del 11-S. La "guerra contra el terror" promovida por la Administración Bush se acompañó de estrategias de diplomacia pública diseñadas para lograr apoyos a la lucha contra el terrorismo y disminuir los niveles de antiamericanismo. En este libro se ofrece un marco que recoge los aspectos teóricos más relevantes en el estudio de la diplomacia pública, para posteriormente ofrecer una visión histórica de la diplomacia pública estadounidense y la "guerra contra el terror". Además, se propone un modelo de análisis para la diplomacia mediática y se aplica al discurso de George W. Bush. [less ▲]
