Popular song sung by 166 french occasionnal singers. The participants sang the French version of the popular tune “Happy Birthday”, without a compulsory tonality, after production of two glissendi (a continuous glide from a low note to a high note and vice versa). The aim of these glissendi was to warm up the vocal organs, to verify the vocal capacity of the subjects and to encourage a lack of inhibition in front of the experimenter and the recording equipment. The sound recordings were made using a microphone (Sennheiser HS2) and a digital recorder (Marantz Professional Solid State Recorder PMD67). [less ▲]

Among acute phase proteins, haptoglobin is considered as the most interesting in cattle. Due to its early and marked increase in acute inflammation, it is useful for the diagnosis and prognosis of acute inflammation and for the evaluation of treatment. Physiological variations of its serum concentrations can be observed in the days following parturition. From very low or even undetectable concentrations, its serum levels can rise significantly during acute inflammation. Haptoglobin could improve the sanitary control of animals and the identification of pathologies even before clinical signs become apparent. It could also detect subclinical diseases and improve the sanitary control at the slaughterhouse, because haptoglobin has a good combination of specificity and sensitivity in such a context. At the herd scale, it could be used to evaluate the sanitary status in order to allocate it a quality label. [less ▲]

The harbor seal (Phoca vitulina) and the harbor porpoise (Phocoena phocoena) from the North Sea have experienced major fluctuations these last decades due to habitat loss, prey fluctuation and pollution of the marine environment. Recently, development of monitoring programs and non-invasive sampling techniques, including seal catches in Germany allowed blood sampling together with measurements of blubber thickness, body mass, sex and body length. This approach is complementary to the study of stranded and by-caught individuals sampled during necropsies. Essential (Se, Zn, Cu, Fe) and non-essential elements (T-Hg, MeHg, Cd, Pb), perfluorinated organochemicals (PFCs) polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) were measured in blubber and in blood (for selected compounds) of stranded, by-caught and free-ranging individuals from Belgian and German coasts. In contrast to Cd and Pb, hepatic T-Hg can reach concentrations as high as 2.1 μg.g-1 dry weight but depended on several factors including position in the trophic chain (inferred from δ13C and δ15N values), age group and the body mass. This level has been shown to generate in vitro toxicity on harbor seal lymphocytes. Organic compound analysis (PFCs, PCBs, PBDEs) revealed widespread dispersion of contaminants in the marine environment with higher concentrations in seals compared to porpoises in agreement with the higher trophic position of the harbor seal. However, metabolization of these compounds differed between the two species, as revealed by the higher contribution of the persistent BDE-47 and lower chlorinated and non-persistent congeners (e.g. CB 52, CB95) in tissues of harbor porpoises. T-Hg, PFCs, PCBs and PBDEs were detected in calves confirming maternal transfer to offspring. These pollutants are strongly suspected to affect the immune and endocrine systems as well as vitamin A metabolism and this raises concern about exposure-related health effects, especially in younger individuals.

The thyroid plays an important role in development and is of primary importance in metabolism and heat loss for cetaceans, including the harbor porpoise (Phocoena phocoena). Several studies have demonstrated that environmental contaminants can alter various aspects of thyroid function in mammals and may contribute to various histologic changes. The present study completes the data set of a 2006 study by Das et al., by performing histological and immunohistologic investigations on thyroids of 36 harbor porpoises from Belgian and United Kingdom waters. The number and mean diameter of follicles (µm) and the relative proportion of follicular, connective, and vascular tissue (%) were quantified in the thyroid gland of each individual. Interfollicular fibrosis has been observed in these thyroid glands, and the collective findings support the hypothesis of an endocrine disruption of thyroid function through organochlorinated compounds. Our study aimed also to reveal potential relationships between thyroid morphometric data and metal levels (Cd, Fe, Zn, Cu, Se, and Hg) using multivariate statistical analysis. The multiple regressions revealed statistically significant relationships between trace elements (cadmium, selenium, and copper) and thyroid fibrosis. The largely negative relationships are interesting findings but do not support the hypothesis that these elements have an adverse effect on thyroid morphometry. Further research is needed to understand the nature of any relationship between organochlorine and trace element exposure and thyroid gland morphology and function in harbor porpoises. [less ▲]

The aim of this paper is to carry out a semantic analysis of the definitions proposed in the scientific literature and in legal texts to describe workplace victimization phenomena. Starting with the observation that there is a great diversity in how these phenomena are considered, the authors attempted to identify recurrences and differences between these various definitions. Three semantic poles were identified: the consequences for people and the environment, hostile behaviours, and the resources of the parties in which various components could be studied. Two questions promoting debate also emerged: the necessity for the author’s intention to talk about a victimization situation, and the place of conflict in harassment processes. Analysis of these definitions led to critical reflection about the problem of evaluation, diagnosis and the intervention relating to such situations. [less ▲]

Dans le domaine de la recherche sur le harcèlement moral au travail, un nouvel enjeu majeur est apparu au cours des dernières années : mieux comprendre la complexité des processus apparaissant à différents niveaux (individuel, interpersonnel, groupal, organisationnel) dans ces situations. Dans cette optique, nous utilisons un modèle d’analyse processuel, intégrateur et dynamique pour analyser le contenu de 100 entretiens menés avec des victimes de harcèlement moral. Les résultats montrent que les situations de harcèlement relèvent plus souvent d’une action négative de l’environnement social autour de la relation interpersonnelle entre harceleur et harcelé que de l’existence d’un processus victimatoire entre ces deux acteurs, qui apparaissent plutôt en conflit. En effet, la relation entre harceleur et harcelé ne relève que dans 22 cas sur 50 d’une dynamique victimatoire, alors qu’il existe une victimisation de l’environnement social (collègues et/ou organisation) dans 48 cas sur 50. Cinq profils de victimes sont également dégagés, mettant en lumière la diversité des configurations sociales du harcèlement. [less ▲]

Esthetic results in dentistry are determined by the harmony between the dental prostheses and the soft tissues. To reach an optimal result, each single step of the treatment has a great importance, from the smile analyses to the final restoration delivery. The goal of this lecture is to describe how to elaborate a treatment planning for single tooth replacement in the aesthetic zone. A decision tree for the surgical protocols will be proposed according to our clinical experience at the university of Liège and, the current scientific evidences. The overall objective is, from an initial clinical situation, to determine the appropriate treatment approach and timing. [less ▲]

We show that the data for the total cross section and for the real part of the elastic amplitude indicate the presence of a hard pomeron in pip and Kp elastic scattering at t = 0, compatible with that observed in deep inelastic scattering. We show that such a hard pomeron is also compatible with pp and pp data, provided one unitarises it at high energy. (C) 2004 Published by Elsevier B.V. [less ▲]

Spatially resolved images of the galactic supernova remnant G78.2+2.1 (gamma-Cygni) in hard X-ray energy bands from 25 keV to 120 keV are obtained with the IBIS-ISGRI imager aboard the International Gamma-Ray Astrophysics Laboratory INTEGRAL. The images are dominated by localized clumps of about ten arcmin in size. The flux of the most prominent North-Western (NW) clump is (1.7+/-0.4)x10(-11) erg cm(-2) s(-1) in the 25-40 keV band. The observed X-ray fluxes are in agreement with extrapolations of soft X-ray imaging observations of gamma-Cyg by ASCA GIS and spatially unresolved RXTE PCA data. The positions of the hard X-ray clumps correlate with bright patches of optical line emission, possibly indicating the presence of radiative shock waves in a shocked cloud. The observed spatial structure and spectra are consistent with model predictions of hard X-ray emission from nonthermal electrons accelerated by a radiative shock in a supernova interacting with an interstellar cloud, but the powerful stellar wind of the O9V star HD 193322 is a plausible candidate for the NW source as well.
