Cette note de recherche relative à la politique de la ville en Wallonie a été réalisée dans le cadre du diagnostic territorial confié à la CPDT pour l’actualisation du Schéma de développement de l’espace régional wallon en 2010-2011. Le présent document propose de revenir sur les différents aspects de la politique à destination des villes en Wallonie. Même si la Région ne dispose pas encore d’une politique spécifiquement dédiée à ses villes, elle a développé une série d’instruments qui participent à la redynamisation des zones urbaines. De plus, une réflexion a été lancée en 2011 afin de définir les grandes orientations à donner à une future politique de la ville en Wallonie. [less ▲]

As his star-spangled costume and his usually firm posturing suggest, Uncle Sam impersonates the United States and symbolically reflects the nation’s most cherished values and ideals such as freedom, exceptionalism, and (masculine) strength. As such, he connects the projects of nationalism and patriotism with the scale of the individual. In other words, he embodies the American motto ‘out of many, one.’ Steve Darnall and Alex Ross’s rewriting of the character, however, strongly contrast with this dominant perception of Uncle Sam in their eponymous 1997 graphic novel. Their narrative shows a distressed and lunatic homeless man wandering the streets of an unknown American city. As he roams the streets, he undergoes an identity crisis that coincides with a crisis of memory, both of which complicate the relation between the symbolic individual body and the collective American unconscious. On the one hand, the character represents the values of freedom and democracy that the US government has strived to implement. On the other, he realizes that the paradigm of the nation cannot be understood as a monolithic entity, and that the plurality of voices that inhabit his persona – and, quite paradoxically, the country – cannot uphold this meta-narrative of American unity. In asking whether or not Uncle Sam is one of U.S., Darnall and Ross comment on the paradoxes of freedom and the myth of the melting pot. [less ▲]

The present paper addresses the experimental identification of a nonlinear space structure, the SmallSat spacecraft developed by EADS-Astrium. The nonlinear component comprises an inertia wheel mounted on a support, the motion of which is constrained by eight elastomer plots and mechanical stops. Robust techniques are applied to measured data to detect, characterise and quantify nonlinear behaviour. [less ▲]

Ce document constitue la synthèse d’une recherche personnelle menée au cours des dix dernières années, portant sur l’utilisation d’internet en tant que plate-forme d’investissement global. Cette recherche m’a amené à observer, conceptualiser et formaliser le comportement dynamique des marchés, des entreprises et des investisseurs. L’objectif de cette synthèse est d’intégrer données (sites internet), concepts, heuristiques et modèles, en un ensemble cohérent de principes opérationnels d’aide à l’investissement. Mon ambition est que ces principes puissent vous aider, comme ils m’ont aidé, à développer des stratégies d’investissement pertinentes au travers d’internet. Avant de les adopter, je vous invite à conserver une attitude critique à leur égard et à les considérer comme autant d’hypothèses à explorer et à valider. [less ▲]

In the present report concerning Task 4.0 – Subsystem Optimization of the Structure Scantling, the structural optimization of the ship is carried out. This optimization is performed with regard to the objective functions and the constraints defined in Deliverables 2.0 & 3.0 [1]. Task 4.0 is divided into three parts: - The initial scantling - The load cases and loadings - The optimized scantling This report presents the results and benefits of optimization. Comments and analysis are provided throughout the report. [less ▲]

The effect of two types of cellulose, microcrystalline cellulose and paper pulp, on enzymatic hydrolysis for cellobiose production was investigated. The particle size, the relative crystallinity index and the water retention value were determined for both celluloses. A previously studied multistage hydrolysis process that proved to enhance the cellobiose production was studied with both types of celluloses. The cellobiose yield exhibited a significant improvement (120% for the microcrystalline cellulose and 75% for the paper pulp) with the multistage hydrolysis process compared to continuous hydrolysis. The conversion of cellulose to cellobiose was greater for the microcrystalline cellulose than for the paper pulp. Even with high crystallinity, microcrystalline cellulose achieved the highest cellobiose yield probably due to its highest specific surface area accessible to enzymes and quantity of adsorbed protein.

Extreme climatic events like the 2003 summer heatwave and inappropriate land management can threaten the existence of rare plants. We studied the response of Eryngium alpinum, a vulnerable species, to this extreme climatic event and different agricultural practices. A demographic study was conducted in seven field sites between 2001 and 2010. Stage-specific vital rates were used to parameterize matrix population models and perform stochastic projections to calculate population growth rates and estimate extinction probabilities. Among management regimes, spring grazing and land abandonment decreased vital rates and population growth, while autumn grazing and late mowing had positive effects on population viability. The 2003 heatwave reduced fecundity rates and survival rates. Only spring grazed sites presented considerable extinction risk. Stochastic projections showed that an increased frequency of 2003-like events may exacerbate extinction risk, but extinction probability depends mainly on land management regimes. To better conserve E. alpinum populations, we recommend conversion of presently spring grazed and abandoned sites to late mowing or autumn grazing. [less ▲]
