Cet article vise à comprendre pourquoi un petit village de montagne a été colonisé par le pouvoir des organisations mafieuses tout au long du développement d'une démocratie occidentale, comme celle italienne. Pourquoi une communauté de bergers, paysans et artisans s’est transformée, en quelques décennies (des années 60’ aux années 90’ du XXème siècle), en communauté mafieuse, gouvernée par le pouvoir de la camorra et au sein de laquelle des jeunes appartenant aux classes subalternes ont été enrôlés comme « main d’œuvre de la camorra », pour y travailler dans les échelons les plus bas des organisations criminelles? Pour répondre à cette question de recherche j'ai analysé les conditions matérielles de transformation de la communauté qui, comme dans la majorité des régions du Sud de l'Italie, ont incarné les paradigmes du « saccage urbain » et du « vol du territoire », c'est-à-dire une transformation urbanistique violente dirigée par l'envie d'enrichissement des élites. Par conséquent, mon attention s'est concentrée sur les processus économiques et politiques modernes qui ont transformé les sociétés du Sud et à travers desquels les mafias se sont imposées, à Montesacro comme dans d'autres villages de l'Italie.

Le concept de communauté de pratique (Community of Practice ou CoP en anglais) occupe une place de plus en plus importante dans le domaine de la formation. Par ailleurs, les outils informatisés sont souvent employés pour supporter les activités de ces communautés. À ce jour, même si la plupart des étudiants qui entrent à l'université sont familiarisés avec les technologies, il est toutefois moins fréquent qu'ils les utilisent pour partager de manière durable des informations, collaborer, produire et capitaliser des connaissances. Le projet ÉduCoP, initié en 2010 à l'Université de Liège, vise à développer et pérenniser une communauté de pratique constituée d'apprenants en Sciences de l'Éducation. La constitution d'une telle communauté s'élabore progressivement et nécessite la mise en œuvre de différentes actions ainsi qu'un suivi. Il faut notamment assurer la continuité des activités et la relève au fil des années. Nous présentons ici l'analyse des besoins, des enjeux et des motivations des étudiants à s'engager dans le projet ; le choix d'outils technologiques à mettre à leur disposition (la plateforme eGroupWare) et des formations à leur usage ; la mise en place d'activités pour développer l'identité des membres de la CoP et les amener à débattre de thématiques communes, à produire et à partager des ressources. De plus, nous exposons le processus de collecte de données qui permet de mesurer l'évolution de la communauté. Si les actions entreprises offrent des résultats très encourageants, des freins à la création et à l'évolution d'une telle CoP ont néanmoins été identifiés (ex. manque de culture technologique des membres, réticence à partager les productions personnelles). Par conséquent, une des missions prioritaires du projet ÉduCoP visent à pallier ces manques. À terme, notre objectif est de proposer un guide de recommandations à d'autres facultés et universités qui souhaiteraient entreprendre la mise en réseau et la création de communautés de pratique d'apprenants.

The concept of Community of Practice (CoP) takes nowadays a great part in the formal or informal learning domain. In addition, computerised tools are often used to sustain the activities of these communities (Wenger, White & Smith, 2009). The ÉduCoP case study deals with the creation and the animation process of a CoP that was launched in 2010 at the University of Liège. Initiated by a master student in educational sciences, it aims at developing and making durable a community of practice composed of learners in this field and supported by Information and Communication Technologies. This paper presents several actions undertaken to develop this CoP: the analysis of the potential members' needs, stakes and motivations of students to enrol in this project; the choice of useful and usable technological tools to provide them (here, the eGroupWare platform) and the training sessions linked to its efficient uses; the activities conducted to develop the CoP's members identity and to lead them to debate about common topics, to produce and share resources. The CoP's evolution was observed through qualitative and quantitative data collection processes (e.g. interviews about the members' implication and roles, support from animator, obstacles, feeling to belong to a CoP, analysis of the topics presented in the posted documents and messages, uses of the technological tools, frequency of connection...). The results are discussed here and perspectives are evoked for this CoP. If the actions undertaken show encouraging results, neverthless obstacles to the creation and the evolution of such a CoP have been identified (e.g. lack of technological culture among some members, reluctance to share personal productions). Some perspectives are considered to overcome these problems. Since October 2011, this initiative has been recognised at the institutional level: the university is interested in lessons learned in order to implement CoP into other faculties that would be willing to start networking and create communities of learners or of practice.

Cet article explore quelques-unes des implications des nouvelles orientations politiques en matière de formation, celles qui ont été annoncées dès 1995 par la Commission Européenne. Dans un Livre blanc « Enseigner et apprendre : vers la société cognitive », on pouvait lire que « l’éducation et la formation deviendront encore davantage les principaux vecteurs d’identification, d’appartenance, de promotion sociale et d’épanouissement personnel. C’est par l’éducation et la formation, acquises dans le système éducatif institutionnel, dans l’entreprise ou de façon plus informelle, que les individus maîtriseront leur avenir et assureront leur épanouissement personnel ».

Knowledge of the hair follicle anatomy and the dynamics of hair cycling is substantial. Recognizing the anagen, catagen and telogen phases as well as teloptosis and the hair eclipse phenomenon clearly characterizes the typical hair chronobiology. Physiological modulators include hormones, neuromediators, miscellaneous biomolecules, seasons, micro-inflammation and ageing. For individuals who present with the complaint of increased hair shedding or alopecia, a host of evaluation techniques are available in addition to history, physical examination and laboratory assessment. Various clinical hair techniques can help in assessing the efficacy of drugs and cosmetics on hair growth. The methods are quite similar to those used to establish a definite diagnosis in dermatological practice. Great strides have been made during the recent decades in the methodology of hair growth trials in dermatology and cosmetology. Clinical evaluations benefit from a few additional specific techniques that enhance the perception of hair (re-) growth, shedding and alopecia. These assessments include the determination of hair patterning and density that may be helped by the 'black-and-white felt' examination. Daily hair counts, the 'hair pull test' and the 'hair feathering test' are also available. Instrumental methods provide reliable quantitative information that is useful if there are adequate controls. Some photographic methods, the trichogram, hair weighing and variants of the hair growth window technique including the phototrichogram, videotrichogram and tractio-phototrichogram provide insight into the complexities of hair cycling and shedding. Skin biopsy is indicated for diagnostic purposes, especially when the hair loss is accompanied by scarring. [less ▲]

Overproduction of sweat, sweaty skin and body odours are unpleasant for many social groups. Body cleansing products are designed to combat these undesirable features of skin. In addition, antiperspirant and deodorant products are more specifically used in the underarm site by a large part of the adult population. Antiperspirants are offered to control emotionally triggered sweating in the armpit. Deodorants are designed to combat malodour generated from bacteria-modified sweat. This review summarizes the physiology of eccrine, apocrine and apoeccrine sweat glands. The mechanisms of action of antiperspirants and deodorants are described as well as the factors influencing their efficacies. A series of tests using various measurement methods can be used to demonstrate the efficacy of antiperspirants. These include the gravimetric method, water evaporation quantification, electrodermal measurements, staining procedures, dye injections and cyanoacrylate skin surface strippings and casting replicas. Deodorant efficacy can be evaluated by sensory assessments performed by an expert panel. Indirect support is provided by visualization of apocrine gland excretion and collection of sweat and volatile compounds. Microbiological assessments and chromatographic analysis also provide indirect information. [less ▲]

The blood supply to the skin is provided by a network of arterioles, capillaries and venules organized into a superficial and a deep plexus. The assessment of skin microcirculation is of valuable interest in cosmetology in the quantification of the sun protection factor, skin irritation and efficacy of antiredness treatments. Skin microcirculation can be measured by means of different techniques, based mainly on the quantification of optical and thermal properties of the skin which are modified by the amount of blood perfusion. Relevant and reproducible data can be obtained only through the understanding of the biophysical background of the technique(s) utilized. Standardization of measuring conditions and procedures is particularly required for blood flow assessment. In this paper, the advantages and disadvantages of the main techniques in use are discussed, and optimization of measurements for laser Doppler techniques is described. [less ▲]

From an engineering point of view, the skin and subcutaneous tissue represent an integrated load-transmitting structure. It is subjected to intrinsic and environmental influences. An attempt to use a four-layered model is offered to explain how the integument withstands and transmits loads through deforming appropriately. The stratum corneum, the association between the living epidermis and papillary dermis, the reticular dermis and the hypodermis have each their own intimate structures whose tensile functions are ideally balanced to respond adequately to the casual mechanical demands. A series of physiological variables, ageing and skin diseases alter the tensile functions of the organ. In the overall analysis, truly comprehensive multidisciplinary approaches in this field have brought advances in the understanding of functional skin biology. The assessment of tensile functions of skin also provides incentives for progress in skin care. [less ▲]
