This essay focuses on Seydou Keïta’s work, and on the way in which this work has been received and conceptualized within both the African and the Western context. These photographs have a long history of geographical and cultural displacement that has deeply influenced their status, as well as the status of the people who engaged with them. The essay follows the development of this history, dealing with the processes of construction of Seydou Keïta as an author and of his photographs as international acclaimed pieces of art [less ▲]

This paper presents a tutorial introduction to the construction of finite-automata on infinite words from linear-time temporal logic formulas. After defining the source and target formalisms, it describes a first construction whose correctness is quite direct to establish, but whose behavior is always equal to the worst-case upper bound. It then turns to the techniques that can be used to improve this algorithm in order to obtain the quite effective algorithms that are now in use. [less ▲]

This article provides a discussion on the importance of knowledge in early childhood education and also the role of knowledge dissemination process in the field. From the question of giving more freedom of movement, knowledge about this topic used in a Belgian curriculum, the article illustrates the importance of considering practice not as an application of theory, but as a co-construct and complex process that combines it with other resources in context. It illustrates the importance of going further than the production of knowledge to create appropriate practice in service. [less ▲]

Political parties are key political actors in both Quebec and Wallonia. As their foremost ambition is to govern their region, these parties clearly contribute to shaping its identity and image. This chapter aims at exploring how political parties in Quebec and in Wallonia speak about their region by focusing on an analysis of their electoral manifestos for the period 1994–2014. Using a quantitative and qualitative approach combining insights from lexicometry, cognitive linguistics and political science, the aims of this contribution are (i) to unravel how the parties perceive their region and its future development, (ii) to identify relevant evolutions in their perception of their respective region, and (iii) to assess to what extent parallels can be drawn between the two regions.

We describe the construction of an ovine BAC contig spanning a 4.6 centimorgan (cM) chromosome segment known to contain the callipyge (CLPG) locus. The contig comprises 21 ovine BAC clones jointly covering approximately 900 kilobases (Kb). Two gaps in the BAC contig, spanning 10 and 7.5 Kb, respectively, were bridged by long range PCR. The corresponding chromosome region was shown to be characterized by an unusually low Kb to cM ratio (164 Kb/cM) and a high density of Not1 sites (1:126 Kb) possibly reflecting a high gene density in the corresponding chromosome region. Equivalent amplification of 64 sequence tagged sites spanning the corresponding region from homozygous +/+ and CLPG/CLPG individuals disproves the hypothesis of a major deletion causing the CLPG mutation.

In this paper, we emphasize three different techniques for the growth of fractal trees with a desired fractal dimension D-f. The three different growths are due to the influence of (i) stretched branches, (ii) dead ends, or (iii) a variable branching rate. Several examples are given. We point out that geometrical and physical properties (skeleton dimension, percolation exponents, self-avoiding walk) of fractal tress depend strongly on their type. The most striking result is that the critical exponents at the percolation transition are nonuniversal since they depend on the tree type. The critical exponents depend on D-f for trees of types (ii) and (iii). [less ▲]

In clinical neuropsychology, different rehabilitation techniques – e.g., vanishing cues, spaced retrieval, errorless learning – developed for patients with memory impairments are considered to make use of the preserved implicit memory abilities shown by these patients, and notably the perceptual priming effects (Harrison et al., 2007). It might be therefore important for clinician neuropsychologists to determine whether these abilities are preserved or not in their patients. However, and quite surprisingly, assessment tools aimed at assessing implicit memory abilities in brain damaged patients are lacking. The aim of this study was to build and validate a new perceptual priming task – the contrasted word task – which could be used by neuropsychologists in their clinical practice. Seventy-two young healthy participants were included in this study, and were administered the contrasted word task in which 60 words counterbalanced in 2 orders and 3 types of priming (Visual; Auditory; New) emerged gradually from a white background on a computer screen. Subjects were asked to press the response key when they thought they had recognized the word. Results show a perceptual priming effect which is specific to the exposure modality (i.e., no inter-modality transfer), proving the efficacy of the contrasted word task to highlight a facilitated identification for words that were shown previously, and confirming the perceptual specificity of the priming effect (Schacter, 1992).

Many studies have shown that the level of development of phonological skills at nursery school is a good indicator of future success in reading acquisition. The aim of this project was to construct and validate a comprehensive phonological awareness test battery for French speaking children. For preschool-level French speaking children, validated phonological awareness test batteries are still lacking. A longitudinal study design was used from a sample of sixty-four children provided education for in the French Community of Belgium. The battery was designed to assess phonological awareness at the rhyme, syllable and phoneme level. A further characteristic of this battery was to use attractive pictorial material enhancing task compliance, and to use identification tasks targeting epiphonological processes as well as manipulation tasks targeting metaphonological processes. At first grade, the same children were given spelling and reading tests in order to determinate the predictif characteristic of this battery. This article briefly presents normative data of the most predictive and discerning tasks of future success in reading and spelling acquisition. [less ▲]

The dynamic evaluation of Parkinson's disease (PD)-related episodic gait disturbances in routine is challenging. Therefore, the aim of our study was to assess the reliability/validity of the Dynamic Parkinson Gait Scale (DYPAGS) composed of eight relevant items for the objective quantification of PD gait features: walking forwards/backwards/with dual-task, turning to both sides, imaginary obstacle avoidance with both legs and passing through narrow spaces. The scale was validated on thirty-five patients with mild to severe parkinsonism in their habitual "on-state". A shorter 6 item-version was designed on the basis of a principal component analysis. No significant floor/ceiling effect was detected. The internal consistency was excellent. The levels of interrater agreement, precision and minimal detectable change were adequate. The criterion-related validity was demonstrated by strong correlations with the DYPAGS scores and those at the gait subscales of the Tinetti Mobility Test and MDS-UPDRS. The construct validity was assessed by moderate-strong correlations with the Freezing of Gait Questionnaire, mobility index of the PD Questionnaire (PDQ-39), disease duration and levodopa equivalent daily doses. Statistical analyses using the coefficient of determination showed that both DYPGAS versions were superior to the other instruments to identify patients with gait disturbances with poorer response to dopaminergic treatment. Full and short DYPAGS are reliable instruments for the quantification of "on" PD-related episodic gait disturbances. The full version is sensitive to detect subtle disturbances in mild parkinsonism. The shorter one is easily administered and reliably quantifies gait disturbances in moderate to severe parkinsonism. We recommend their use for research and clinical practice. [less ▲]
