The A. studies the phenomenon of the civic elections of a patron saint in the Spanish Low Countries, after the process definition by the Congregation of Rites in 1630. She takes an interest mainly in the ceremonial dimensions of these consecrations that give rise to solemnities noticeable by their dramaturgy. In a war context, these elections answer to the anxiety by an overactive energy resulted in a luxuriant and opulent scenery. Life’s highlights of cities in crisis, they prove an exacerbate expressivity and a strong inventiveness. Their study must excite the curiosity of the historian who questions the mechanisms of the solennisation of the Tridentine cult, the part given to the emotion in the expression of the Sacred and the processes invented to create a strong affective adhesion to the message that these ceremonies suggest. Are particularly studied the cases of Lille (1634), Aire-sur-la-Lys (1636), Armentières (1664), Luxembourg (1666 and 1678), Stadtkyll (1679) and Baasen (1682). [less ▲]

Le 14 octobre 2012, les électeurs étaient appelés à désigner leurs mandataires communaux en Wallonie. Un processus en apparence familier pour les observateurs de la vie politique mais dont les dynamiques demeurent en réalité mal connues ... En effet, le défi méthodologique est ici de taille : dans les 262 communes wallonnes, pas moins de 1012 listes se sont présentées, sur lesquelles figuraient quelques 19 675 candidats. Ce livre présente la réponse à ce défi, apportée par un projet de recherche interuniversitaire dont l’objectif est d’analyser les données collectées pour chacune de ces 1012 listes. Les résultats permettent de répondre à plusieurs réponses pertinentes et fascinantes, telles que : Les élections communales reflètent-elles des dynamiques nationales ou locales ? Quelles sont les considérations stratégiques dans le choix du nom de la liste ? L’étiquette des partis nationaux est-elle un atout électoral face aux électeurs ? Quelles raisons motivent les partis à se présenter en alliance ? Les candidats sont-ils des professionnels de la politique ou des citoyens amateurs de la politique locale ? Les candidats d’ouverture améliorent-ils la performance électorale d’une liste ? Les auteurs contribuent également à clarifier les singularités et les ressemblances du scrutin wallon avec les scrutins bruxellois, flamands et provinciaux. Cet ouvrage entend ainsi offrir un éclairage scientifique innovant et systématique sur les stratégies et les résultats des élections communales de 2012 en Wallonie. Proposant des analyses scientifiques (qualitatives, quantitatives et mixtes) et des informations précises et comparables sur toutes les communes et toutes les listes électorales de Wallonie, cet ouvrage est vraiment unique en son genre.

Quelles sont les règles et les pratiques électorales en Belgique ? Nul n’ignore l’importance des élections dans toute société démocratique. Or, les élections reposent sur un système électoral qui n’est jamais neutre. En Belgique, des élections sont organisées à différents niveaux (élections communales, provinciales, régionales, communautaires, fédérales et européennes) et chaque type d’élection est encadré par un système électoral qui lui est propre. Il est donc nécessaire de mettre en perspective les nombreuses règles et pratiques électorales de notre pays. Entre les interventions de juristes et de politologues, ce colloque fera la part belle à la discussion avec le public. En outre, cet aprèsmidi de débats se fondera sur les travaux de plus de trente auteurs rassemblés dans l’ouvrage Les systèmes électoraux de la Belgique et publié sous la direction de Fr. Bouhon et M. Reuchamps (Éd. Bruylant). Le colloque s’articulera autour de trois grandes thématiques : - le concept de démocratie représentative ; - les acteurs des élections ; - le mode et les modalités de scrutin [less ▲]

In many proportional representation (PR) systems, a legal electoral threshold has been implemented. Such a threshold reserves the allocation of seats to those parties which reach a minimum number of votes or a percentage of the votes. Since 2004, a legal threshold of five per cent has been introduced for the Belgian regional elections, following the introduction two years earlier of the same mechanism for the federal elections. The main reason behind this electoral reform – in a country which has been quite stable on this regard – was to prevent the further fragmentation of the political spectrum. This paper aims at testing this claim on empirical grounds. Two regional elections – 2004 and 2009 – can be surveyed in order to measure the effects of the electoral threshold. It is particularly relevant to study the impact of the electoral threshold in the regional elections because there are several discrepancies between the Regions in terms of the size of the districts, the fragmentation of the party system and the electorates. These differences may indeed influence the potential effects of the legal threshold. Since Duverger’s seminal work, electoral rules are known to influence the party system through their impact on the electoral outcomes, on the one hand, and on the electoral behaviour of both parties and voters, on the other hand. Two effects, which have been much further developed by the subsequent literature and are now widely accepted, are at stake here: the mechanical and the psychological. While the former refers to the objective mechanism of under-representation of some – usually the smaller – parties which may potentially lead to their disappearance because of the electoral laws, the latter implies the more subjective mechanism which can play at the level of both voters and party elites. Thus, in order to measure the impact of the legal five per cent threshold on the fragmentation, this paper tests the mechanical and the psychological effects for the Belgian regional elections of 2004 and 2009.

1. The effects of different forms of brain stimulation on the discharge pattern of single motor units were examined using the post-stimulus time histogram (PSTH) technique and by recording the compound surface electromyographic (EMG) responses in the first dorsal interosseous (FDI) muscle. Electrical and magnetic methods were used to stimulate the brain through the intact scalp of seven normal subjects. Electrical stimuli were applied either with the anode over the lateral central scalp and the cathode at the vertex (anodal stimulation) or with the anode at the vertex and the cathode lateral (cathodal stimulation). Magnetic stimulation used a 9 cm diameter coil centred at the vertex; current in the coil flowed either clockwise or anticlockwise when viewed from above. 2. Supramotor threshold stimuli produced one or more narrow (less than 2 ms) peaks of increased firing in the PSTH of all thirty-two units studied. Anodal stimulation always produced an early peak. The latencies of the peaks produced by other forms of stimulation, or by high intensities of anodal stimulation, were grouped into four time bands relative to this early peak, at intervals of -0.5 to 0.5, 1-2, 2.5-3.5 and 4-5.5 ms later. Peaks occurring within these intervals are referred to as P0 (the earliest anodal), P1, P2 and P3 respectively. 3. At threshold, anodal stimulation evoked only the P0 peak; at higher intensities, the P2 or more commonly the P3 peak also was recruited. The size of the P0 peak appeared to saturate at high intensities. 4. In five of six subjects, cathodal stimulation behaved like anodal stimulation, except that there was a lower threshold for recruitment of the P2 or P3 peak relative to that of the P0 peak. In the other subject, the P3 peak was recruited before the P0 peak. 5. Anticlockwise magnetic [corrected] stimulation, at threshold, often produced several peaks. These always included a P1 peak, and usually a P3 peak. A P0 peak in the PSTH was never produced by an anticlockwise stimulation [corrected] at intensities which we could explore with the technique. 6. Clockwise magnetic [corrected] stimulation never recruited a P1 peak; in most subjects a P3 peak was recruited first and at higher intensities was accompanied by P0 or P2 peaks. 7. On most occasions when more than one peak was observed in a PSTH, the unit fired in only one of the preferred intervals after each shock. However, double firing was seen in five units when high intensities of stimulation were used.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 400 WORDS) [less ▲]

First-principles techniques are used to investigate the behavior of BiFeO3/LaFeO3 perovskite oxide superlattices epitaxially grown on a (001)-SrTiO3 substrate. The calculations show that 1/1 superlattices exhibit a Pmc21 ground state combining a trilinear coupling of one polar and two oxygen rotational lattice modes, and weak ferromagnetism. The microscopic mechanism allowing one to manipulate the magnetization with an electric field in such systems is presented and its dependence on strain and chemical substitution is discussed. BiFeO3/LaFeO3 artificial superlattices appear to be good candidates to achieve electric switching of magnetization at room temperature. [less ▲]

Recordings of electrical activity of six different areas of the uterus were obtained from two pregnant cows before and after delivery of their calves. Periods of activity occurred as spike bursts of potentials which occupied 52% of the recording time before delivery and 92% at the expulsive phase. The mean duration of the bursts was nearly doubled in the last ten hours prior to parturition without changes in their frequency. After delivery, the activity of the uterus occupied 29% of the recording time and consisted of long-lasting periods of spike bursts whose frequency was nearly halved. The alternation of periods of activity and quiescence represents the basic motility pattern of the pregnant uterus. Periods of quiescence are shortened at the time of expulsion and become predominant in the empty uterus, a phenomenon paralleled by changes in the temporal organisation of the number of spike bursts with the periods of activity.
