The diet of the Malachite Kingfisher was investigated by study of 182 regurgitated pellets collected from 65 broods during the nesting period in the rainy seasons from 2004 to 2009, in two sites in the Kinshasa area. In total, 2619 undigested remains were identified in the pellets, revealing 1100 prey. The Malachite Kingfisher’s diet is rich and diverse. The prey identified were 92.7 % fishes (Oreochromis niloticus, Gambusia affinis and Hemichromis elongatus), 5.9 % insects (Odonata and Orthoptera) and 0.5 % frogs. [less ▲]

To prioritize 100 animal diseases and zoonoses in Europe, we used a multicriteria decision-making procedure based on opinions of experts and evidence-based data. Forty international experts performed intracategory and intercategory weighting of 57 prioritization criteria. Two methods (deterministic with mean of each weight and probabilistic with distribution functions of weights by using Monte Carlo simulation) were used to calculate a score for each disease. Consecutive ranking was established. Few differences were observed between each method. Compared with previous prioritization methods, our procedure is evidence based, includes a range of fields and criteria while considering uncertainty, and will be useful for analyzing diseases that affect public health [less ▲]

The effect of heat treatments (drying and hydrothermal treatment) on the extractability of salt-soluble protein (SSP) was assessed using Promatest methodology for corn kernels heated between 60 C and 120 C. During drying, the evolution of the grain moisture content is fitted using the analytical solution of Fick equation developed by Crank (1979) for spherical material. The decrease of extractible salt-soluble protein during heating is forecasted using a first and a second order ordinary differential equation. It was found that temperature; moisture content and time of processing greatly influence the kinetic denaturation of SSP of corn kernels. The evolution of extractible SSP content of corn kernels during drying at high temperature is more correctly described with second order kinetic than with the first order kinetic reaction. The Hunterlab color parameters of corn also vary during drying. Lightness and color intensity decrease while yellowness, redness, chroma and hue angle increase through drying time. Most of these Hunterlab color parameters are highly correlated with the salt-soluble proteins content and therefore could be used as indicators of excessive heat treatment and denaturation of salt-soluble proteins in corn kernels [less ▲]

Cette contribution porte sur les enjeux que soulève la réforme des soins de santé mentale en Belgique, au carrefour de l’évolution socio-historique du secteur, et d’un modèle des soins inscrit au sein de tendances internationales. Précisément, l’objectif est de mettre en tension l’indétermination du modèle, au sens où il renvoie à un ensemble d’expériences étrangères plus qu’un un corpus de savoirs; et la configuration d’une offre de soins encore déterminée par ses frontières institutionnelles.

Cet article analyse les enjeux dissimulés derrière une polémique qui a débuté suite à un article de François Busnel, publié le 24 novembre 2010 dans l’Express-Lire, dans lequel ce dernier dénigre la littérature jeunesse et l’accuse de n’être qu’un "coup marketing". Cette publication a déclenché de nombreuses réactions chez les représentants de ce secteur. L'analyse proposée ici tâche de rendre compte, en confrontant les deux types de prises de parole, de l’impact que peut avoir l’objet d'une polémique (la littérature jeunesse, dans ce cas-ci) sur le déroulement de celle-ci.

The paper singles out the key roles of US equity skewness and kurtosis in the determination of the market premia embedded in Hedge Fund returns. We propose a conditional higher-moment asset pricing model with location, trading and higher-moment factors in order to describe the dynamics of the Equity Hedge (Market Neutral, Short Selling and Long/Short strategies), Event Driven, Relative Value, and Funds of Hedge Funds styles. The volatility, skewness and kurtosis implied in the US options markets are used by Hedge Fund managers as instruments to anticipate market movements. Managers should adjust their market exposure in response to variations in the implied higher moments. We show that higher-moment premia improve a conditional asset pricing model both in terms of explanatory power (R-squares and Schwarz criterion) and specification errors across all Hedge Fund styles.

On the ground of a three years-long multi-sited, ethnographic research conducted in Southern Nigeria, Italy and the United Kingdom, my PhD dissertation analyzes the processes of transnationalization that have affected the southern Nigerian video film industry (Nollywood) during the first decade of the 2000s, and interpret their significance in relation to the industry’s history and recent developments. Transnationalization processes have affected the industry at different levels, which include its economic and social organization, its international representation, and the narrative and aesthetic features of the films it produces. The dissertation analyzes these different levels through three separated, but interrelated, sections: 1) The Nigerian video industry has experienced a transnational success since its early stages. Thanks to the informality of Nollywood’s network of distribution, pirated copies of Nigerian videos have circulated throughout the world since the mid 90s. Informal and pirated networks of circulation made videos travel long distances and create for the industry a wide transnational audience. However, as this section argues, informal production and distribution strategies and their vulnerability to piracy progressively eroded the industry’s economy. This section then argues that, once the internal Nigerian video market has started to implode because of the excess of informality and the lack of a proper distribution framework, an important section of the industry has explicitly decided to target the transnational audience generated by the global informal circulation of Nigerian video films. New modes of production and circulation emerged, which mainly target local elites and diasporic audiences. A new wave of high budget productions saw the light. The videos’ patterns of mobility transformed and, this impacted on video films’ economic accessibility for local popular audiences. 2) The second section analyzes the way videos’ discursive circulation (that is, the way in which videos, and the video phenomenon in general, have been portrayed, discussed and analyzed both in Nigeria and elsewhere) impacted on the video industry’s transformation. As with the material and economic circulation analyzed in the first section, videos’ discursive circulation interacted with the video phenomenon in at least two ways. On the one hand it made videos travel. It made them cross boundaries and reach audiences they did not even envisaged to reach. On the other hand, it opened for the video industry a field of dynamic confrontation. Nollywood has been compared to other global film industries (such as Bollywood and Hollywood), and it has been criticized for its low production quality standards. The video phenomenon has been celebrated for some of its achievement, and mocked for some of its weaknesses. This complex interaction with the global cinema arena has produced numerous effects on the video industry. Videos entrepreneurs reacted to criticism and engaged into active processes of transformation aimed at making the video industry reach international production quality standards, and escape the marginal position within which much of the mentioned discursive constructions positioned it. 3) The third section looks at videos’ aesthetics and narrative structures. The transnational mobility of the videos impacted on them in multiple ways. On the one hand, as a result of the encounter of both transnational and local aesthetic and narrative aspects, videos developed a particular aesthetic and narrative openness which made them able to address dispersed audiences and reconstitute them into a pan-African public. Through their specific film language, contents, and forms of address videos activated a debate on what it means to be African today, and shaped it around the social, cultural and historic specificities of the post-colonial, post-Structural-Adjustment era in Nigeria and, more generally, in sub-Saharan Africa. On the other hand, mobility intervened in the reformulation of videos’ narrative and aesthetic patterns. The video phenomenon has been adopted and reinterpreted by Nigerian diaporic groups in Europe and elsewhere. The specific social and economic conditions associated with the experience of living in the diaspora interacted with the videos’ production strategies and defined particular narrative and aesthetic solutions. When the Nigerian video industry entered the production crisis diasporic production companies found themselves in the position of an avant-garde in what concerns the industry’s transnational expansion: they had already experimented with economic and aesthetic solutions that could open Nigerian productions to global audiences. As a result, they became the bridge able to connect the Nigerian video film industry to transnational, non-African audiences. [less ▲]

The text is related to the calculus’s main theorem learning as it is studied by students in the last year of Belgium secondary school. We make an epistemological analysis of the theorem that inspired us the set up of a situation composed of four mathematics statements and for which we need rectilinear movements with or without variable speeds, speeding and moving laws, areas, volumes and flows. The suggested strategies for these statements and the reactions will be analysed later. [less ▲]

Ce chapitre vise à présenter les règles juridiques qui déterminent le rythme électoral. Il commence par une courte discussion sur la question de savoir quel laps de temps peut être considéré comme une durée raisonnable pour une législature. Il se poursuit par le passage en revue les normes qui établissent, pour chacune des assemblées élues du pays, la durée qui sépare en principe deux élections , et par l'examen des cas où la législature est écourtée par l’organisation d’élections anticipées. Enfin, le chapitre s'achève par une brève réflexion sur l’opportunité d’une synchronisation des différentes échéances électorales. [less ▲]
