The influence of climatic and behavioural factors on the progress and success of the breeding cycle of chaffinches (Fringilla coelebs) has been investigated on the Hautes-Fagnes plateau (Belgium). From april to july 1980, three line transects (two of 1,6 and one of 1,2 km) in Norway spruce plantations were regularly prospected. The estimation of the number of territorial males was improved by a sonographic analysis of their songs, The breeding season has been marked twice by unfavourable weather conditions. In april, a cold-wave produced flocks reformation, but after then the cycle could evolve normally. In june-july, heavy rains seem to have affected many broods. The 1968 (watched by Mairy) and 1980 breeding cycles have been compared ; both emphazise the Chaffinch's breeding cycle sensitivity to climatic hazards. [less ▲]

Introduction: This case study aims to make an assessment of environmental health nuisances in textile industry in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Methods: We conducted a cross-sectional and analytical study. Out of 257 workers selected using systematic sampling, 229 workers were enrolled in the study. 223 workstations were subjected to measurements in order to determine the level of noise, lighting and heat. Data were collected from company documents, by means of a direct-question interview focusing on socio professional informations and through measurements. Descriptive analysis was used for sociodemographic and professional data and analytical approach was used for themeasurements. Results: In the company studied 88% of employees were workers. Weaving department included almost 68% of workers. The majority of employees worked as part of a three shift (85%). The study population was predominantly male (85%), aging (52%) over 40 years and educated (80%). In the company studied, only 12.1% of workstations met the noise standards and 18% of workstations met the lighting standards. 94% of workstations didn't meet the heat standards for heavy work. Conclusion: Our study highlighted the environmental health nuisances in textile industry, demonstrating the existence of significant gaps related to the prescribed standards for the measured nuisances. These results are a plea for the development of appropriate preventive measures. They should be confronted with other more detailed studies in this work environment. [less ▲]

The stage of the oestrus cycle at which the GPG protocol is instigated affects the results obtained and justifies presynchronisation treatments to increase the number of animals that are within the 5(th) and 12(th) day of the cycle, which is the optimal period of treatment. Increased fertility, especially in multipara animals was observed. An inverse relation between fertility and the diameter of the follicle present at the time of prostaglandin administration or second injection of GnRH was described. However, it seems that the type of gonadorelin used, the dose or the timing of injection in relation with the PgF(2alpha), does not affect fertility The effect of the timing of insemination in relation to the second injection of GnRH is significant. This interval influences the rate of fertility and embryonic or foetal death and the sex-ratio. [less ▲]

The aim of this paper is to identify reasons why workers would resign from their jobs early and to what extent the reasons for retirement are really encountered. A number of non satisfaction factors either personal or job-related were considered in an age comparison dimension. A questionnaire has been elaborated for the purpose of this study and includes items related to job intention to quit and (potential vs encountered) non satisfaction factors. These factors consider both personal leaving factors and job related leaving factors. The latter include three theoretical sub-dimensions: working conditions, organizational and structural changes and job recognition. Exploratory factor analysis of the 58 items produced eight usable leaving factors: (1) lack of resources and autonomy; (2) work pressure; (3) lack of personal development; (4) job insecurity; (5) personal reasons; (6) organizational changes; (7) a hostile work environment and (8) a poor image of the company. The sample includes 1772 workers from 11 Belgian companies. The response rate is 50.23 per cent. All sectors of activity are included in the survey. We consider five categories of age (under 25 years old, between 25 and 35, between 36 and 45, between 45 and 55, and over 55 years). As far as the results are concerned, first of all, organizational changes encountered by a large majority of workers appear to be an important leaving factor, especially for older workers. Second the lack of personal development, though experienced by the oldest workers in a larger extent, is the main reason for leaving in all age groups. Third personal factors are also important for the younger and the oldest workers. Moreover work pressure is a phenomenon encountered by all workers, particularly the youngest, but it is less of a reason for leaving. Another result is that job insecurity factor is experienced by youngest workers. Finally, the differences between the young and the not so young are not very clear-cut, supporting the idea of the age management perspective. [less ▲]

Several studies on the sources of funding for local NGOs in Africa highlight their dependence on foreign donors, while in developed countries, these organizations have multiple resources. Investigations previously done show that the majority of resources of local NGOs come from foreign donors, and most of them are dead at inception due to lack of funding. Before reaching the beneficiaries, financing goes through several players who are related by an explicit contract: Foreign donors - International NGOs - Local NGOs - Endogenous groups - beneficiaries populations. The literature points to the existence of a contractual relationship between the one who runs the activities and the one that funds them. Yet despite this explicit contract, some actors in this chain of relationships are influenced by other factors and / or their interests and make decisions that have no direct links with the mission of the organization. This leads us to ask ourselves two questions: first, the question about the factors that characterize the relationship between actors and secondly whether at all levels, the actors involve other stakeholders. The present paper aims to provide a conceptual and theoretical framework to characterize the agency chain relationship between these different actors. Although there are studies on the application of the agency theory in the governance of Nonprofit organizations, there have been very few studies done on the agency chain relationship between these organizations. It is then necessary to make new theoretical developments on how local NGOs in Africa in general, and Burundi in particular, are funded and governed; and that, in the case where the actors in the chain relationship are in different contexts. To do this, we will first mobilize and apply the agence theory and others theories of governance at this agency chain relationship. We conclude by showing the peculiarity of Africa in general, and Burundi in particular with additional elements that enhance this agency relationship, making then the conceptual model complex.

It further emphasizes the specificity of these factors compared to those involved in the industry by example [less ▲]
