The wildlife populations of Northern Central African Republic experienced precipitous declines during the 1970s and 1980s. While anecdotes coming out of the region indicate that the wildlife populations remain under serious threat, little is known about their status. An aerial sample count was carried out in the Northern Central African Republic at the end of the dry season in June 2005 and covered an 85,000 km2 complex landscape containing national parks, hunting reserves and community hunting areas. Results show a dramatic decline of wildlife since the previous survey in 1985. In 20 years, large mammals’ numbers decreased by 65%, probably <br />because of poaching and diseases brought by illegal cattle transhumance. Elephant (Loxodonta africana) and Buffon kob (Kobus kob) populations showed the greatest decline (over 80% each), while buffalo (Syncerus caffer), roan antelope (Hippotragus equinus) and Giant Lord’s Derby Eland (Taurotragus derbianus) populations seem stable or increasing over these last 20 years. The analysis of the wildlife population distribution by status of the different types of protected areas (national parks, hunting areas) showed that individual encounter rates of elephant and buffalo were lower in national parks than in neighbouring hunting areas, while those for roan, giraffe (Giraffa camelopardalis) and Buffon kob were higher in the national parks.

The economy globalization measure problem is discussed. Four macroeconomic indices of twenty among the "richest" countries are examined. Four types of "distances" are calculated. Two types of networks are next constructed for each distance measure definition. It is shown that the globalization process can be best characterised by an entropy measure, based on entropy Manhattan distance. It is observed that a globalization maximum was reached during the interval 1970-2000. More recently a deglobalization process has been observed. (C) 2009 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved. [less ▲]

Cette présentation orale avait pour objectif de ressituer le haubanage des arbres dans le cadre général de la gestion des risques et de présenter les résultats de recherches dans ce domaine. L'amortissement des mouvements de branches, notamment, a été étudié avec et sans haubans. Les liens entre contraintes mécaniques et conditions de vent ont également été mesurés. [less ▲]

La haute couture a généralement été cernée dans les rapports qu'elle entretient avec les opérations de "griffe" propres à la haute culture, dans l'esprit de l'article fondateur réservé à cette question par Pierre Bourdieu et Yvette Delsaut ("Le couturier et sa griffe : contribution à une théorie de la magie", Actes de la recherche, 1975). L'examen d'un corpus de nécrologies de grands couturiers dans Paris Match montre que la haute couture se trouve aujourd'hui de plus en plus indexée du côté de la culture de masse sous l'impulsion de facteurs internes à son propre secteur de production (allant dans le sens d'une certaine fabrication standardisée) et externes (relevant d'une logique people appliquée aux représentants les plus médiatisés du secteur).

In this paper we trace some of the key points in the history of Science and Technology Studies (STS). In particular we outline the inherently political dynamics of the field. Against We underline two emerging patterns in the curse of STS: the one of “depoliticisation” and the one of increasing “engagement”. We address the case study nanotechnologies and discuss their intertwined history with the STS. This allows us to point at the risk that the increasing institutionalisation of STS and the political mandate that frames and stabilizes the field’s relationship to the technological developments would create a political void. We conclude that STS research is at a crossroads. It is facing an important empirical turn, which may deprive it from its political significance, and constantly redefine its institutional constraints. STS has to continuously question its underlying political assumptions (as it occurs more and more regarding public participation) and to make it explicit. [less ▲]

We investigate how modal meanings can emerge in nominal patterns, an under-researched source construction for modal meanings. We specifically look at how the combination of the noun need/needs with negation markers of various kinds leads to such modal meanings related to the deontic and epistemic domain. [less ▲]
