INTRODUCTION: Cardiopathies are the world's leading cause of mortality and morbidity. Although rare, cardiovascular accidents can occur during intense and infrequent sporting activity, particularly among those who are unaware of their heart condition. The development of cardiospecific biochemical markers has led to a reconsideration of the role of biology in the diagnosis of cardiovascular illnesses. The aim of this study therefore was, through the use of cardiac biomarker assays, to highlight the impact of sustained physical effort in the form of intense and prolonged concentric isokinetic exercise and to research potential cardiovascular risks. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Eighteen subjects participated in a maximal concentric isokinetic exercise involving 30 knee flexion-extensions for each leg. Five blood tests were taken to study the kinetics of the cardiac biomarkers. Haemodynamic parameters were measured continuously using a Portapres, and respiratory parameters were measured using a Sensormedics Vmax 29C. RESULTS: The results showed significant increases in the creatine kinase, myoglobin, homocysteine and haemoglobin cardiac markers. Evolutionary trends were also observed for the following biomarkers: NT-proBNP, myeloperoxydase and C-reactive protein. All the physiological parameters measured presented statistically significant changes. CONCLUSION: Isokinetic effort leads to the release of cardiac markers in the blood, but these do not exceed the reference values in healthy subjects. Maximal concentric isokinetic exercise does not, therefore, lead to an increased risk of cardiovascular pathologies. [less ▲]

L’étude, limitée au contexte de la dissolution du contrat de travail, aborde, dans une première partie, la possibilité pour les parties au contrat de travail de renoncer au bénéfice d’une disposition, possibilité liée au caractère impératif ou d’ordre de la disposition en cause. Est particulièrement étudié le lien entre le rapport de subordination et la faculté d’abdiquer un droit. Le document effectue ensuite une incursion dans la question de la preuve de la renonciation. La troisième partie passe en revue un large éventail de droits auxquels les parties pourraient être tentées de renoncer : clauses d’écolage, clauses de stabilité d’emploi, renonciation au droit d’invoquer la rupture du contrat de travail en cas d’acte équipollent à rupture ou de préavis nul, renonciation à la durée du préavis ou à l’indemnité en tenant lieu, renonciation au reclassement professionnel, aux droits découlant d’une convention collective, renonciation par un délégué du personnel, renonciation par la voie d’une convention collective, etc. Si la matière reste incertaine à bien des égards, elle est aussi en évolution, tant par l’effet de la jurisprudence que par l’action de la loi, et notamment celle du 26 décembre 2013 dite « statut unique », qui a modifié de manière sensible le champ de la licéité des renonciations au délai ou à l’indemnité compensatoire de préavis.

En 140/39 av. J.-C., une mission romaine composée, entre autres, de Scipion Emilien et du philosophe Panétios visita les alliés orientaux de Rome et se rendit notamment à Alexandrie. Le roi Ptolémée VIII y accueillit officiellement ces hôtes prestigieux, vêtu d’un habit étrange : un chiton long et subtil, dont les auteurs anciens réfèrent unanimement l’effet efféminé et caricatural, au point de susciter le rire des Romains et une condamnation du luxe effréné et décadent du royaume égyptien par comparaison avec la sobriété romaine. Il a fallu attendre une étude de H. Heinen en 1983 pour reconnaître, d’une part, l’envergure idéologique du lien entre la tenue de Ptolémée VIII – en fait empruntée à l’iconographie hellénistique de Dionysos – et la mise en scène officielle de la tryphè et du pouvoir royal et, de l’autre, le sens politique de la représentation caricaturale qu’en donna probablement déjà Panétios, représentation qui fut relayée et amplifiée par toute une tradition historiographique philo-romaine, qui se développa tout au long de la conquête romaine de la Méditerranée et ensuite à l’occasion du conflit entre Octavien et Antoine. Cette tradition nous a transmis, par le biais des auteurs de l’époque impériale, un discours fondé sur l’opposition entre Rome (et l’Italie), vertueuse source de citoyens et de soldats, et l’Orient dégénéré. Dans un tel cadre, Dionysos et le dionysisme sont sollicités pour servir à la construction d’un modèle accusatoire contre les ennemis de Rome, incarnant le désordre dans une dimension à la foi individuelle et institutionnelle. Mais est-ce que cette vision idéologique nous donne un portrait satisfaisant des rapports réels entre Rome et Dionysos / Bacchos / Liber Pater ? En partant de cette question, je propose dans ma contribution une approche visant à analyser, à l’aide de sources aussi littéraires que documentaires, les contextes de contact entre Rome et Dionysos de l’époque hellénistique au début du Principat, pour essayer de mettre en relief les relations entre, d’une part, la répulsion et le refus idéologiques du dionysisme, de l’autre les démarches d’appropriation et d’adaptation, à la culture romaine, de traits caractérisant les cultes hellénistiques de Dionysos et leurs utilisation dans la mise en forme des pratiques du pouvoir et de leurs représentations.

Scientists in many fields of research have developed models, theories and concepts attempting to grasp and manage dangers that are often difficult to imagine. Among the different perspectives, the Science and Technology Studies (STS) Vulnerability Approach seems very promising. Relying on a constructivist paradigm, it is based on an inductive collection and analysis of a wide range of factors, with a particular focus on cultural factors and actual day-to-day practices. In this paper, we present the roots of this approach and we display findings based on three case studies exploring emergency planning in three different contexts (a city near a SEVESO plant, a school near a nuclear plant, and a city confronted to multiple catastrophic scenarios). The cases studies were realized by conducting three Focus Groups with different types of stakeholders (citizens, teachers, firemen, decision makers, etc.). After presenting the results of the case studies, we discuss how stakeholders’ participation can inform such type of vulnerability analysis in the context of emergency planning. We argue that participation fosters a deep understanding of actual safety governance practices which allows innovative results to emerge as well as it initiates a learning process among the participants. It contributes to questioning the relations between decision-makers, experts and citizens. It has the potential of bypassing the positivist and quantitative rationale of safety, and thus, of redefining the vulnerability governance. As a conclusion, we question the role of such STS vulnerability approach within the actual vulnerability governance. [less ▲]

Hydro-Québec has a long interest in on-line Dynamic Security Assessment (DSA) driven by its challenging power network dynamics (angle, frequency and voltage stability, short and long-term dynamics). At the moment, off-line calculated security indicators are combined with an on-line monitoring system to ensure the security of the system. However, new developments in power system dynamic simulation algorithms facilitate real-time or near-real-time DSA calculations and enable on-line transfer limits determination. In this paper, the domain-decomposition-based algorithm implemented in the dynamic simulator RAMSES is presented, along with the techniques used to accelerate both its sequential and parallel execution. RAMSES exploits the localized response of power systems to disturbances and the timescale decomposition of dynamic phenomena to provide sequential acceleration when the simulation is performed on a single processing unit. In addition, when more computational units are available, the parallelization potential of domain-decomposition methods is exploited to provide parallel acceleration. The presented algorithm and techniques are tested on a realistic model of the Hydro-Québec system and the accuracy of dynamic response, the sequential and parallel performances are evaluated. Finally, the real-time capabilities of the simulator are assessed using a shared-memory parallel processing platform. [less ▲]

Objective: The objective of this paper is to propose, starting from the description of a clinical emblematic case, a theoretical synthesis of the work of phenomenological psychopathology dedicated to melancholia and typus melancholicus (TM), a clinical concept that describes the premorbid personality vulnerable to major depression (“melancholia” for the psychopathological tradition). Method: This is phenomenological analysis of a case study of melancolia, of its premorbid personality and pathogenic triggering situation. We adopt two main phenomenological keys to understanding the develpment of melancholia : role-identity theory and desynchronization theory. The former understands melancholia as a disorder of identity triggered by the loss of the social role with which one has previously over-identifed. The latter sees melancholia as the effect of the desynchronisation from the social environment that further develops into an inhibition of the conative–affective dynamics of life. We present the case of Jonas (64 years old), whose mother (94 years old) recently died. Before his mother’s death, Jonas’ life was entirely orchestrated by the caring for his mother and synchronized in time with this (e.g., he used to go to her house every 4 hours, took all his meals with her, etc.). Jonas, in addition to being hyper-synchronized and hyper-syntonic, fulfills all diagnostic criteria for TM, including “orderliness”, “conscientiousness”, “hyper/heteronomia” and “intolerance of ambiguity”. TM’s attach a disproportioned importance to their social roles (or external representations of identity) at the expense of their own ego-identity. Results: The passage from pre-morbid personality to melancholia is triggered by the death of Jonas’ mother that entails a profound depersonalization. Desynchronization and role loss cause Jonas fall into this severe depersonalization, whose core feature is the feeling of the loss of feeling. Conclusions: This original contribution demonstrates a clinical case can contribute to the construction and refinement of theoretical and conceptual frameworks (like princeps Tellenbach's studies). Over-synchronized tempo and over-identification with social role are emblematically in this case the two sides of the same coin. A parallelism can be established between synchronization (with the mother) and respect for the role at the expense of own identity. The clinical case of Jonas highlights a conceptual bridge between the model of melancholia as loss of social role and the model of melancholia as desynchronization. [less ▲]
