Multi-core CPUs, along with recent advances in memory and buses, render commodity hardware a strong candidate for building fexible and high-performance software routers. With a forwarding plane physically composed of many packet processing components and operations, resource allocation in multi-core systems is not trivial. Indeed, packets crossing cache hierarchies degrade forwarding performance, since the bottleneck is main memory access. Therefore, forwarding path allocation and input/output processing become challenging, especially when states and data structures have to be shared among multiple cores. In this context, we investigate a set of input/output processing architectures, as well as resource allocation strategies for forwarding paths. For each packet processing operation, we uncover the gains and possible implications by either running different components concurrently or replicating the same components across different cores.

We investigated the expression of Fos, the protein product of the immediate early gene c-fos in the brain of male Japanese quail after they engaged in either appetitive or consummatory sexual behavior (i. e., copulation). For 1 h, castrated males treated with testosterone were either allowed to copulate with a female or to exhibit a learned social proximity response indicative of appetitive sexual behavior. Control birds were either left in their home cage or placed in the experimental chamber but did not exhibit the appetitive sexual behavior because they had never learned it. Fos expression was studied with an immunocytochemical procedure in two sets of adjacent sections through the entire forebrain. These sections were immunolabelled with 2 different antibodies raised against a synthetic fragment corresponding to the 21 carboxy-terminal residues of the chicken Fos sequence. Contrary to the results of a previous study in which gonadally intact birds were used, Fos induction was observed neither in the medial preoptic nucleus nor in the nucleus intercollicularis in birds that had interacted for 1 h with a female. This may be related to a lower frequency of copulation in the testosterone-implanted birds than in intact birds, or to differences in the time the brains were collected after the birds engaged in sexual behavior between the two studies (60 min in this study, 120 min in the previous study). The performance of copulation and/or appetitive sexual behavior increased the number of Fos-immunoreactive cells in the ventral hyperstriatum, medial archistriatum, and nucleus striae terminalis. These increases were observed using both antibodies, although each antibody produced minor differences in the number of Fos-immunoreactive cells observed. Using one of the antibodies, but not the other, increases in Fos immunoreactivity were also observed in the nucleus accumbens and hyperstriatum after either copulation or appetitive sexual behavior. These differences illustrate how minor technical variations in the Fos immunocytochemical procedure influence the results obtained. These differences also show that Fos induction in a number of brain regions is observed after performance of consummatory (copulation) as well as appetitive (looking at the female) sexual behavior. This induction is, therefore, not related solely to the control of copulatory acts but, presumably, also to the processing in a variety of telencephalic association areas of stimuli originating from the female. The observation that increased Fos immunoreactivity is present in birds that had learned the response indicative of appetitive sexual behavior, and not in those that had not learned the behavior, further indicates that it is not simply the sight of the female that results in this Fos induction, but the analysis of the relevant stimuli in a sexually explicit context. Conditioned neural activity resulting from a learned association between the stimulus female and the performance of copulatory behavior may also explain some aspects of the brain activation observed in birds viewing, but not allowed to interact with, the female.

Two sediment cores taken from lakes BK1 and BK2 in Beak Island (Trinity Peninsula, Antarctic Peninsula) were analysed. The cores were divided in two sections (lacustrine and marine). Changes in cyanobacterial diversity occurring within the lacustrine section, when the lake was isolated from the sea, were studied. [less ▲]

During two school days and two days off, 37 secondary school pupils were offered a daily reflection and reporting exercise about how they learnt in the day (intensity and channels). This experiment had two purposes: (a) to assess the extent to which the mobile phone can be used as an instrument to develop awareness about learning, and (b) to explore how young people attend to their identity as learners when they are prompted to reflect on this theme. Results suggest that students accepted to answer questions about learning on own mobile appliances and outside school hours. The study also provides indications that getting aware of and reflecting about their identity as learners is not a common and/or understood practice for the participants. [less ▲]

Cet article trace une voie de recherche au sein de l’histoire de la philosophie continentale : il entend revenir sur le partage théorie/pratique à partir d’une confrontation entre l’œuvre de Foucault et un ensemble de textes tardifs de Husserl. Dans ce dessein, il place l’accent sur la dimension « ascétique », puis pratique, de la phénoménologie husserlienne (à travers les notions de conversion, d’(auto)méditation, de vie philosophique, enfin de critique historique de nous-mêmes) de façon à nuancer l’image convenue d’une pensée husserlienne strictement intellectualiste. En effet, bien qu’elle culmine dans la réactivation d’une attitude théorétique originaire, il reste : que cette attitude est elle-même fondée par une pratique de soi, dans la pensée ; qu’elle se prolonge en « une nouvelle espèce de pratique », historique, où le sens de l’humanité est pris en charge. Il montre en conclusion qu’au regard d’une ontologie critique de nous-mêmes, ces auteurs couvrent deux régions différentes et contraires, comme en témoigne le rapport divergent qu’ils entretiennent à la question de l’origine, à celle du sujet, enfin au concept d’expérience.

La loi belge du 13 février 2003 ouvrant le mariage à des personnes de même sexe et modifiant certaines dispositions du Code civil est entrée en vigueur le 1er juin 2003. Si cette consécration du mariage homosexuel a suscité, en Belgique même, quelques remous politiques et médiatiques, elle n'a guère retenu l'attention des cénacles intellectuels et, moins encore, de ceux qui font profession de confronter le discours juridique aux réalités sociales que celui-ci entend régir. Pourtant, pareille réforme se prête aisément à une réflexion pluridisciplinaire approfondie. En particulier, les interférences susceptibles de se nouer entre le champ juridique, où se meut l'initiative législative que je viens d'évoquer, et la sphère philosophique méritent de retenir l'attention. Puisqu'il est ici question de philosophie à propos d'une réforme relative aux droits des gays et des lesbiennes, l'ombre de Foucault ne peut tarder à planer sur ces interférences. Dans cette optique, la loi belge de 2003 constitue l'occasion de reprendre à la racine le problème du traitement juridique, après Mai 1968, de la question de l'homosexualité ou, pour reprendre une terminologie privilégiée par Foucault à partir de la fin des années 1970, de la question gay. Tel est l'objet de la présente contribution. [less ▲]
