La sauvegarde de l’environnement, l’un des piliers du développement durable, ne s’intègre que timidement dans les plans de développement communaux en Afrique. A Bembéréké, comme dans la plupart des communes en Afrique subtropicale, on note parmi les problématiques environnementales majeures : un amenuisement des facteurs de production en milieu rural et une insalubrité alarmante en milieu urbain. En effet, le centre urbain de Bembéréké s’est avéré insalubre au terme de deux études (DCAM, 2005 et Ngahane, 2010) ; le paludisme, les infections respiratoires, les anémies, etc. sont le quotidien des populations. Le projet « Gestion des Déchets solides » veut résorber cet épineux problème et pour ce faire, nous avons mis sur pied une méthode de caractérisation rapide, simple, peu coûteuse et flexible permettant de disposer, au préalable, de données de base fiables. Ainsi, à Bembéréké, en 2011, la production moyenne des ordures ménagères est de 0,94 +/- 0,10 kg/j.hab, soit 1,9 +/- 0,3 l/j.hab ; cette production est dominée par les gravats/fines et la matière organique biodégradable. Alors que, la production des ordures ménagères n’y est significativement liée ni aux saisons, ni aux quartiers et ni aux standings ; leur composition présente des variations très significatives entre et au sein même des saisons, des quartiers et des standings. Donc, gérer les déchets solides à Bembéréké, c’est gérer à 99 % les ordures ménagères ; soit 6 050 T (12 107 m3) pour 2011 : 55 % d’Inertes, 40 % de fermentescibles, 6 % de combustibles et 1% de déchets dangereux. Parce qu’elle est performante, l’alternative D1 « 75% Prévention-25% Elimination » a été retenue pour la gestion de ces déchets ; toutefois, sa mise en œuvre doit être progressive. A Bembéréké l’agriculture et l’élevage sont le moteur économique. Jadis complémentaires, ces deux activités ont connu des ajustements/adaptations après la période de grande sécheresse (1970-1980) : l’agro-pastoralisme naît, les moyens et les systèmes de production convergent, une concurrence s’établit dès lors sur les ressources désormais communes que sont la terre et l’eau. Cette concurrence est accrue dans les bas-fonds offrant encore simultanément ces ressources en saison sèche. Les rares retenues d’eau, mais vitales, de plus en plus convoitées, doivent subvenir aux besoins que sont l’abreuvage bovin (40 l/j.tête) et le maraîchage (100 m3/j.ha), essentiellement. Par ailleurs, pour le développement socio-économique de Bembéréké comme du Bénin en général, les ressources en eau ne constituent pas un facteur limitant. Pour le site de Guessou-Sud dont le réservoir a une capacité actuelle d’environ 13 000 m3, l’ensemble des besoins considérés a été estimé à 40 000 m3/an ; tandis que, le site recevrait du bassin versant en moyenne 8 000 000 m3/an. En plus de l’urgence d’un triplement de la capacité de stockage de la cuvette de la retenue de Guessou-Sud, l’état de dégradation avancée du site suggère une restauration, une préservation voire un rehaussement de son potentiel et de ses richesses floristiques et faunistiques afin, de sécuriser ses conditions hydriques. La pérennisation de cette ressource et la réplication de cette expérience sur d’autres sites donneraient une dynamique nouvelle dans ce contexte très local, mais traduisant une réalité régionale, qu’est la commune de Bembéréké.

Malgré la richesse et la vision collective que peut amener une équipe pluridisciplinaire, la pratique de médecine générale reste le plus souvent centrée sur les soins en réponse à une demande du patient et relevant d’une dimension individuelle. Malgré une motivation importante, l’équipe du CSI de Tilleur a du constater que le manque de compétences internes et le manque chronique de temps des soignants limitaient fortement ses aspirations à faire évoluer le modèle de soins vers les objectifs de globalité de prise en charge et pour l’ensemble des patients. Il a été décidé d’internaliser les compétences jugées manquantes par l'engagement d'une personne non soignante, dont la fonction est de soutenir l’équipe pluridisciplinaire dans ses projets de soins, de santé communautaire et de promotion de la santé. L’apport méthodologique propre à la santé publique en fait le point d’ancrage entre la conception d’un projet et sa réalisation concrète dans la pratique quotidienne. Des modifications structurelles commencent à apparaître parmi les soignants et des exemples de prise en charge globale de certaines pathologies ou actions préventives sont observés. La promotion de la santé, tant au niveau individuel que collectif, trouve une nouvelle place au sein d’une équipe principalement dédiée aux soins. [less ▲]

This paper reports on the analysis of gestures in the expression of static locative relationships in French and Dutch, for L1 speakers as well as for francophone learners of Dutch (L2). The data analysed is drawn from video-taped picture descriptions where subjects were asked to talk about the location of certain entities on these pictures. Tutton (2012) has observed that in spatial descriptions gestures often express information that remains unexpressed in the verbal production and that typically the information that is gesturally expressed is directional (cf. also McNeill 2000; Gullberg 2009, 2010). Our data only partially confirm his findings: in most cases, gestures express information that is also expressed verbally. In addition, while gestures are indeed well-suited to express direction, we argue that a clearer distinction is needed between directional and (purely) locational gestures. We suggest that the crucial factor identifying a locative gesture is the fact of the gesture being anchored in the representational gesture space, an issue that hitherto has not been discussed in the literature. While all gestures are necessarily made in the gesture space, anchored gestures are those that receive a clear representational location. These can be pointing gestures, but often they are not (e.g., an anchored shape-, size- or manner-gesture). Functionally, they are not unlike what Liddell (2003) has called buoys in ASL, i.e., clearly located and stationary signs that function as conceptual landmarks while the discourse continues. The difference with anchored gestures is that the latter are not stationary. Non-anchored gestures do not have such a precise location. For example, directional gestures are not really anchored to a specific point, but merely indicate a direction. Similarly, some iconic gestures express locative relations (e.g. BETWEEN, EVERYWHERE), but are made without being anchored in the representational gesture space (e.g., just in front of the speaker, in centre space). We argue that despite their locative semantics, they are not locative gestures. In fact, anchored locative gestures could thus be seen as grounding predications, i.e. "an instance (but not a type) is thought of as having a particular location in the domain of instantiation" (Langacker 1991:57). In addition, typological differences are manifest in gesture. In line with Talmy’s (2000) typological distinction between verb-framed and satellite-framed languages, Dutch can be described as a “location-rich” language and the descriptions of the native Dutch speakers abound with locative descriptions, through the highly grammaticalised use of posture verbs but also via other linguistic means (prepositions, adverbs, etc.). French, in contrast, is “location-poor”: the French narrations have significantly fewer locative descriptions and the locative information is much more general. Instead, they add narrative detail and meta-linguistic comments to their descriptions. The francophone learners of Dutch (with 3 levels of proficiency) use more gestures revealing the challenge that free expression in a second language poses, especially for the lowest proficiency levels: they use more shape gestures, more enactment gestures (e.g., pulling a drawer, brushing one’s hair, etc.), more reality-anchored gestures (e.g., pointing at one’s shoes when talking about shoes), and more meta-communicative gestures indicating their lexical shortcomings, e.g., word- search gestures (see Ladewig 2011). Overall, and as can be expected, the low proficiency L2 speakers use almost more gestures than words, which can be seen as a visual compensation for their lack of lexical accuracy; the gestural expression of advanced learners, in contrast, is much more locational in nature, in line with the target language (cf. also Gullberg 2009, 2010, Alferink & Gullberg 2014).

Ideomotor apraxia is a disorder mainly of praxis planning, and the deficit is typically more evident in pantomiming transitive (tool related) than intransitive (communicative) gestures. The goal of the present study was to assess differential hemispheric lateralization of praxis production using event-related functional magnetic resonance imaging. Voxel-based analysis demonstrated significant activations in posterior parietal cortex (PPC) and premotor cortex (PMC) association areas, which were predominantly left hemispheric, regardless of whether planning occurred for right or left hand transitive or intransitive pantomimes. Furthermore, region of interest-based calculation of mean laterality index (LI) revealed a significantly stronger left lateralization in PPC/PMC clusters for planning intransitive (LI = -0.49 + 0.10, mean + standard deviation [SD]) than transitive gestures (-0.37 + 0.08, P = 0.02, paired t-tests) irrespective of the hand involved. This differential left lateralization for planning remained significant in PMC (LI = -0.47 + 0.14 and -0.36 + 0.13, mean + SD, P = 0.04), but not in PPC (-0.56 + 0.11 and -0.45 + 0.12, P = 0.11), when both regions were analyzed separately. In conclusion, the findings point to a left-hemispheric specialization for praxis planning, being more pronounced for intransitive gestures in PMC, possibly due to their communicative nature.

Mastitis is the most “antibiotic consuming” pathology in dairy medicine. Though antibiotics and antibiograms are known to vets since the early fifties, our practices did not evolved a lot from empiric antibiotic therapy. Indeed, the need for a treatment, the cost and the delay for an antibiogram are most of the time incoherent with a routine practice. Nevertheless, there is a surge for rational use of antibiotics. Our study was based on 1100 mastitis events from 30 Belgian farms collected between January 2011 and June 2012. We chose to compare tissular cure (TC) based on the threshold of 200.000 somatic cells/ml in milk at milk control at least 60 days after the clinical mastitis event. Regarding the mastitis event, severity (according 3 grades: alteration of milk as grade 1, alteration of quarter as grade 2 and alteration of general state as grade 3), quarter, treatments were recorded. We also assessed a chronicity status based on previous somatic cell count (SCC) of the cow. It was considered a new case a cow which at least 15 days before had an SCC <200.000 cells/ml, other were marked as chronic cases. In our distribution, we see a seasonal rise of incidence between January and May. This period would represent twice as many mastitis as the summer period. Overall TC reaches 46% of all mastitis events, which is quite poor. Rear quarters had significantly lower TC (p<0,05%). Grade 3 mastitis had lower TC, 42,6% (p<0.05%) versus 48,9 % for grade 2 and 44,2% for grade 1. Almost 49% of all mastitis was considered as chronic cases, which TC was 33% on average, whereas new cases reached 55,3% TC. Study of treatment was frustrating given the high number of different combinations of treatments. It was underlined that 4th generation cephalosporins (C4G) were the most used in our cohort, followed by aminopenicillin/methicillin association (PENA/PENM) and 1st generation cephalosporins/aminoglycosids (C1G/AG) association. Of these intramammary treatments, 20% of the cases were submitted to a second intramammary drug, mostly C1G or C1G/AG. One third of the cases were treated parenterally with antimicrobials, mostly macrolids, fluoroquinolones and penethacillin. Finally, 10% of mastitis was treated with anti-inflammatory drugs, mostly tolfenamic acid and flunixin-meglumin. Comparing mastitis without use of a secondary intramammary drug, only PENA and C1G/AG reached more than 60% TC. Considering new cases, then C1G/AG, PENA/PENM and Prednisolone containing specialties were above 60% TC. Use of a parenteral injections increased TC only on new cases (+12%), but not on chronic cases. Refining by severity, TC improved with a parenteral on new cases, mainly in grade 1 (+20%). Regarding associated factors, TC was negatively affected by chronicity, parity and lactation stage. Indeed, TC was lower on cases from more than 4 month in milk, third lactation (OR = 2.8 for no cure) compared with previous, and chronic cases (OR=2,6). Seemingly, chronicity was positively associated with parity and season. The 3rd parity cases had higher chances to be chronic ones (OR = 1,7), as well as cases from April to September (OR = 1,6). This evaluation of cure is rather simple and has a good variability which allows several questions about the real match between antimicrobial treatment for mastitis and the udder inflammation. Based on our epidemiological data, we can modify routine management of mastitis, as some cases might not worth the antimicrobial treatment. [less ▲]
