Currently, the art criticism encounters changes that come from the transformation of its objects and of its broadcast mediums in the digital age. To understand these changes and to evaluate the issues, we will examine the art criticism through the lense of olfactory art to show how this very specific art brings out the subjectivity, the perceptual habitus as well as the scientific and industrial limits of the art criticism.

Automated resource exchange and negotiation between participants of a Virtual Organization, or Peers of a Peer-to-Peer Grid, is an important feature of Grid computing because it enables scalable cooperation between entities under separate administrative control. Automated negotiation and accounting of resource consumption have been studied, and market-based resource exchange methods have been proposed. However, there currently exist few simulators of resource exchange accounting or actual Grid middlewares supporting negotiation with automated resource usage accounting between separate entities. We propose a Lightweight Bartering Grid (LBG) architecture suitable to the development of Peer-to-Peer Grids based on bartering (i.e. automated and accounted resource exchange), where Peers model their environment. We present the LBG architecture as well as a simulator and a middleware under development that both instantiate it. [less ▲]

Nowadays, in newly built housings, energy losses due to the ventilation can represent up to 50 % of the total building energy consumption. As a result, heat recovery ventilation units are widely used in order to save primary energy and different control strategies for ventilation systems are investigated. For instance, demand control ventilation sounds like a promising solution to decrease the energy impact of the ventilation system in the residential sector. An accurate building model integrating the influence of ventilation (so called thermo-aeraulic building model) is necessary in order to investigate the control and the impact of the ventilation system on a yearly basis. The aim of the present paper consists in a description of a combined multi-zone airflow network model and thermal building model implemented in the Modelica language. The thermal model is a simplified dynamic model using equivalent thermal resistance and capacity. The airflow network is based on the traditional electrical circuit analogy. The model can be used for ventilation systems design, infiltration rate calculation, inside air quality calculation, energy consumption calculation, etc. The first part of the paper details the multi-zone thermal building model. The results obtained from the model are compared to experimental in situ results collected in the typical single family house test facilities. Those experimental results have been obtained in the frame of the IEA-EBC Annex 58. The second part of the paper introduces the multi-zone airflow network building model. Obtained model results are compared with the results provided by a typical multizone airflow analysis software, for a simple three zones test case. The third part of the paper describes the coupling between both thermal and airflow models. The different numerical problems encountered are described and solutions are discussed. [less ▲]

Forest ecosystems play a major role in atmospheric carbon sequestration and emission. Comparable organic carbon stock estimates at temporal and spatial scales for all forest pools are needed for scientific investigations and political purposes. Therefore, we developed a new carbon stock (CS) estimation procedure that combines forest inventory and soil and litter geodatabases at a regional scale (southern Belgium). This procedure can be implemented in other regions and countries on condition that available external carbon soil and litter data can be linked to forest inventory plots. The presented procedure includes a specific CS estimation method for each of the following forest pools and subpools (in brackets): living biomass (aboveground and belowground), deadwood (dead trees and snags, coarse woody debris and stumps), litter, and soil. The total CS of the forest was estimated at 86 Tg (185 Mg ha-1). Soil up to 0.2 m depth, living biomass, litter, and deadwood CSs account, respectively, for 48, 47, 4, and 1 % of the total CS. The analysis of the CS variation within the pools across ecoregions and forest types revealed in particular that: (1) the living biomass CS of broadleaved forests exceeds that of coniferous forests, (2) the soil and litter CSs of coniferous forest exceed those of broadleaved forests, and (3) beech stands come at the top in carbon stocking capacity. Because our estimates differ sometimes significantly from the previous studies, we compared different methods and their impacts on the estimates. We demonstrated that estimates may vary highly, from -16 to ?12 %, depending on the selected methods. Methodological choices are thus essential especially for estimating CO2 fluxes by the stock change approach. The sources of error and the accuracy of the estimates were discussed extensively.

A new Bifidobacterium species is described based on the study of ten Gram-positive strains with fructose-6-phosphate phosphoketolase activity. They are part of a phenotypic group comprising 141 strains isolated from raw milk and raw milk cheeses in French raw milk cheese factories. This group was separated by a numerical analysis based on API 50CH, API 32A tests and growth at 46 degrees C. A strong similarity of 16S rRNA sequences (99.8%) was shown between strain FR62/b/3(T) and Bifidobacterium psychraerophilum LMG 21775(T). However, low DNA-DNA relatedness was observed between their DNAs (31%). The new isolates are able to grow at low temperatures (all ten strains up to 5 degrees C) and strain FR62/b/3(T) grows under aerobic conditions, as does B. psychraerophilum. However, contrary to B. psychraerophilum, they do not ferment L-arabinose, D-xylose, arbutin or melezitose, but they do acidify lactose. The DNA G+C content of FR62/b/3(T) is 56.4mol%. Therefore, the name Bifidobacterium crudilactis sp. nov. is proposed, with its type strain being FR62/b/3(T) (=LMG 23609(T)=CNCM I-3342(T)). [less ▲]

Introduction: Different series emphasized the necessity of rehabilitation program after infiltration of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) in case of tendinopathy. However, most of them describe only briefly the reeducation protocol and these programs vary. Our aim was to extensively describe a specific standardized rehabilitation program. Methods: After a review of literature of post-PRP infiltration protocols, we had developed a standardized rehabilitation protocol. This protocol was evaluated by 30 subjects with chronic jumper’s knee who. A a standardised progressive sub-maximal eccentric program supervised by a physical therapist for 6 weeks was started 1 week post-infiltration. The patient benefited also from electromyostimulation, isometric strengthening and stretching of the quadriceps, cycloergometer and cryotherapy. After the supervised program, the patient had to make an auto-reeducation added to the reathletisation protocol for 6 more weeks which was followed by maintenance exercises up to 1 year. The assessments were made using a VAS, IKDC and VISA-P scores. Results: The VAS , IKDC and VISA-P scores decreased very significantly with time. The compliance to auto-reeducation was good. Conclusion: We proposed a simple and efficient protocol based on sub-maximal eccentric reeducation to add to PRP infiltrations in case of patellar tendinopathy. [less ▲]

Objectives: Repeted abutment connection and disconnections compromize the connective and epithelial sealing around implant components, leading to peri-implant bone remodeling (Abrahamsson, 1997). Placing the definitive abutment at the time of implant placement might be a treatment option to minimize this biological rupture. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of pre-shaped zirconium abutments for immediate implant loading in the anterior maxilla. Materials and methods: A total of 13 patients needing the placement of one or several implant in the esthetic zone were treated with Regular Crossfit Bone Level (Straumann) implants. Implants were placed and immediately restored with a pre-shaped zirconium abutments and provisional resin crowns if the primary stability reached at least 20 N/cm2. Implant survival rate, biological and prosthodontic complications as well as peri-implant tissue status (papilla index) were recorded during a follow-up period of 1 year. Results: A total of 14 implants (8 incisors, 1 canines, 5 premolars) placed in 11 patients (4 men / 7 women) aged from 22 to 60 years old (48,5 +/- 11,5) could be assessed for the entire follow-up period. 2 patients dropped out. All implants reached an adequate primary stability (> 20N/cm2) to perform an immediate implant restoration. Straight pre-shaped Zirconium abutment was used in each case. Six implants were placed in socket preservation sites and five implants were placed simultaneously with a GBR. After a follow-up period of 1 year, all implants fulfilled survival criteria for dental implants with regard to osteointegration, including the absence of peri-implant radiolucency, implant mobility, suppuration, and pain. One abutment screw loosening was observed during the provisional period and no abutment fracture occurred. Definitive full ceramic-cemented restorations were successfully performed on each implant after a mean period of 6 months and no further complications occurred. In 11 out of 14 implants, an improvement of the papilla index was observed from baseline to 1 year follow-up whereas 3 implants showed a decrease of this index. Conclusion: The results from this prospective case series suggest that immediately restored implants using a final pre-shaped zirconium abutment in esthetic zone display favorable implant and prosthodontic outcomes and seems to allow an adequate papilla index improvement in most of the cases.

In (synthetic) holography and diffractive optics, the optical field is often decomposed in a set of spherical or plane waves. This gives sometimes some problems in calculating the Fourier transform. Because Gaussian beams are their own Fourier transform, it seems to be more natural to use Gaussian beams as basis functions. However, because Gaussian functions are no complete set of basis functions, it is necessary to extend the idea and to use rather Gaussian-Hermite wave functions as an orthonormal basis set. Those ideas can also be applied to general Self-Fourier Transform functions. [less ▲]

Understanding fine scale behavioral responses of fish to changes in abiotic characteristics of streams (in term of flow and water temperature) is an interesting innovative issue to improve river management of highly disturbed large rivers. Acoustic telemetry system have become an essential technology for such studies involving continuous (per second) and accurate tracking of fish movements. In the Rhône River (France), important hydrology and thermal contrasts are mainly explicated by the succession of dams and nuclear power plant from the Leman Lake (Switzerland). In this context, it is likely that fish are compelled to adapt their behaviour and their habitat selection in this changing environment. In order to test this hypothesis, a fixed acoustic telemetry survey was performed in the Rhône River during summer 2009 in front of the Bugey nuclear power plant which released warmed water within the river. A study site of 1.8 km long and 140 m wide was monitored using 32 hydrophones developed by HTI® (Hydroacoustic Technology Inc.). Sixty two fish mainly belonging to three species barbel (Barbus barbus), chub (Leuciscus cephalus) and wels catfish (Silurus glanis) were marked with acoustic tags (307 KHz; pulse rate ~ 3 sec.) and followed continuously during 89 days. Fish positions were coupled with a 2D hydraulic model to obtain main physical characteristics encountered by fish such as flow velocity, water depth, water temperature and substrate. The accuracy of the telemetry system was checked and a positional error less than 4 m was found in the channel (detection efficiency of 50 %) and less than 8 meters along the banks (detection efficiency of 20 %). Behavioral responses of fish were investigated through the individual mobility and activity during selected phases of flow (increase, decrease and stability) and water temperature changes (imposed by both warm water plumes and the rapid transition of deep cold waters from the Leman Lake discharged within the river). Mobility and activity of fish were particularly studied to determine the amount of movement associated with a change of abiotic conditions. The separate effects of each environmental factors on behavioral responses of fish were studied and interactions between factors were analyzed to highlight potential synergistic or antagonistic effects. Finally, movement rules (i.e. individual movement decisions in a particular surrounding environment) were analyzed to determine the role of perception of the environment by fish (i.e. how the fish feel the changes in physical habitat) in the use of space.
