Dans cette étude, nous nous proposons d’appliquer à la sphère phénoménale la thèse conceptualiste selon laquelle le contenu d’un acte de perception est intégralement réductible à un contenu conceptuel. Il s’agit de défendre l’idée que les qualités phénoménales — les qualia — sont elles aussi justiciables, à l’instar de l’ensemble de ce qui compose le contenu de l’expérience perceptive, d’une identification conceptuelle. Pour mener à bien notre projet, nous étendrons, au prix de quelques rectifications, la thèse conceptualiste initialement développée par J. McDowell à la phénoménologie de la perception. Cela nous permettra d’établir un dialogue fructueux entre les débats actuels en philosophie de l’esprit et la (proto-)phénoménologie husserlienne. L’issue de cette discussion entre traditions n’est rien de moins qu’une nouvelle lecture de la phénoménologie, au-delà de son interprétation frégéenne. [less ▲]

It is commonly accepted that highly challenging planet finding missions such as Darwin and TPF need precursors on the ground, for both technological demonstration and study of the exozodiacal clouds around potential targets. A first instrument, GENIE, designed to be implemented in the interferometric laboratory of the VLTI, was studied by ESA and scientific/industrial teams. In this paper we present a concept for ALADDIN, an operational nulling instrument to be implemented at Dome C in Antarctica, and discuss the comparison with GENIE from the instrumental point of view. Our preliminary design involves moderate ~1m size telescopes mounted on a 40m long rotating beam allowing baselines up to 30m and feeding a 2-arm nulling beam combiner. When compared to GENIE, the rotating beam design has the advantage of removing the need for both long-stroke delay line and dispersion control equipments. As a side effect, the instrumental arrangement of ALADDIN finds itself more representative of what Darwin will be. Furthermore, critical issues like phase control, photometric balance and instrumental background suppression are expected to be relaxed by the improved atmospheric conditions, lower temperature, and simpler optical trains. Calibration of geometrical stellar leakage will make advantage of the continuously adjustable baseline. As results, a simpler instrument showing improved performance is expected. In conclusion, we see our ALADDIN concept as a valuable alternative to GENIE, with a quite stronger scientific potential and a considerably simplified instrumental design. [less ▲]

Abstract Earthquakes may trigger a series of multiple cascading geohazard phenomena. For example, coseismic landslides may block rivers and form landslide dams, which occur frequently in tectonically active mountains with narrow and steep valleys. The catastrophic release of water masses from landslide-impounded lakes is capable to produce outburst floods and debris flows, causing loss of lives, housing and infrastructure. Quantifying the probability of these cascading phenomena following a triggering event has been a main ... [less ▲]

The article deals with the typological differences between the Romance lan- guage French and the Germanic languages German and Dutch for the linguistic expressions of posture and location. It describes how these typological differ- ences can be problematic for French-speaking learners of German and Dutch. The main difference between both types of languages is that posture and loca- tion tend to be encoded by posture verbs in Germanic languages and by very general verbs in Romance languages (Talmy 2000). After a detailed description of the semantic networks of the German and Dutch posture verbs, the paper takes a critical look at how these expressions are dealt with in teaching manuals. It further presents strategies for the efficient teaching of posture verbs to foreign language learners. These strategies are among others awareness-raising exercis- es about the compulsory use of posture verbs in Germanic languages and the description of conceptual metaphors in different languages. These pedagogical avenues for the efficient teaching of the Dutch and German posture verbs con- stitute a first step towards the elaboration of an experimental set-up aiming at verifying them.

This paper aims to present the ways of making SWOT analysis using quantitative and qualitative models and establishing the optimal development strategies of rural settlements in the North – East region of Romania, previously used to establish strategies within organizations. This represents an adaptation of this approach to another area of activity. Stratification criteria were established for the general domains at the level of all rural settlements in this development region (trade and catering, agriculture, living conditions, rural infrastructure, access to basic services, public order and safety, constructions, administration and civil society and others) that were then classified, according to actual needs of local communities, into areas of expertise. This conceptual model can be applied to the entire North – East development region, being built on data collected from 6 different counties (Botosani, Iasi, Vaslui, Bacau, Neamt, Suceava).Based on the stratification criteria of the domains encountered in the rural villages of the North – East region, a division and classification of the durable rural development strategies of local communities has been realized according to the opportunities and threats presented by their external environment and by their strengths and weaknesses. By virtue of these characteristics determined by the quantitative and qualitative models of the SWOT analysis, we will have four types of strategies that can be used. It has been discovered that the majority of local communities’ present characteristics that do not allow the application of only one type of strategy, but that can generate various combinations between the four types of achieving them. It results then a customization of the conceptual model of realizing the local development strategies according to local conditions. However there is a preponderance of one of the four types of strategies (SO, ST, WO, WT). [less ▲]

The socio-economic field researches have indicated the necessity of realizing an integrated consultancy service for beekeepers that will supply technical-economic solutions with a practical character for ensuring the lucrativeness and viability of the apiaries. Consequently, an integrated apiarian consultancy model has been built holding the following features: it realizes the diagnosis of the meliferous resources and supplies solutions for its optimal administration; it realizes the technical-economic of the apiarian exploitation adapted according to its objectives and identifies its optimal administration measures; it manages the local pollination services market; it realizes viable investment projects and ensures the management of their implementation; it elaborates aggregated indicators as efficient instruments of analysis and utilizes and informatics application of apiarian management used for realizing the specific objectives of the apiaries; it integrates the technical, economic and juridical consultancy service.

Uncertainty assessments in groundwater modeling applications typically attribute all sources of uncertainty to errors in parameters and inputs, neglecting what may be the primary source of uncertainty, namely, errors in the conceptualization of the system.Confining the set of plausible system representations to a single model leads to underdispersive and prone-to-bias predictions. In this work, we present a general and flexible approach that combines generalized likelihood uncertainty estimation (GLUE) and Bayesian model averaging (BMA) to assess uncertainty in model predictions that arise from errors in model structure, inputs, and parameters. In a prior analysis, a set of plausible models is selected, and the joint prior input and parameter space is sampled to form potential simulators of the system. For each model, the likelihood measures of acceptable simulators, assigned to thembased on their ability to reproduce observed systembehavior, are integrated over the joint input and parameter space to obtain the integrated model likelihood. The latter is used to weight the predictions of the respective model in the BMA ensemble predictions. For illustrative purposes, we applied the methodology to a three-dimensional hypothetical setup. Results showed that predictions of groundwater budget terms varied considerably among competing models; despite this, a set of 16 head observations used for conditioning did not allow differentiating between the models. BMA provided average predictions that were more conservative than individual predictions obtained for individual models. Conceptual model uncertainty contributed up to 30% of the total uncertainty. The results clearly indicate the need to consider alternative conceptualizations to account for model uncertainty. [less ▲]
