Since 2009 Belgium has been through an unprecedented political and institutional crisis, which has come to an end with the forming of a new federal government in December 2011. This crisis can partly be explained by the victory of the Flemish nationalist party (N-VA) in the federal elections of 2009 and by the diverging views of the two main parts of the country on the functioning and the future of the federal state. In this presentation, we try to assess to what extent this political crisis can be explained on the metaphorical level by analysing the use of conceptual metaphors in different types of political discourse for the period 2007-2010. While politics constitutes an abstract and complex domain of experience in which metaphors play a prominent role (Lakoff 2002, De Landtsheer 2009, Semino 2008), little attention has been paid to the use of conceptual metaphors in actual political discourse (see Authors to appear, De Landtsheer 2009, Koller 2009, L’Hôte & Lemmens 2009 for some examples). In this contribution we propose to study political conceptual metaphors in two types of corpora, which have traditionally been left out of the analysis, namely political party programmes on the one hand and citizens’ discourse on the other. Our first research goal is to identify the conceptual metaphors the main Flemish (Groen!, SP.a, CD&V, Open VLD, N-VA, Vlaams Belang) and Walloon (Ecolo, PS, CDH, MR) political parties developed in their programmes and to study their level of circularity, that is to what extent they are present in the other parties’ programmes. This will allow us to determine which were the dominant metaphors of the campaign leading to the federal elections of 2009 and the victory of the Flemish nationalist party (N-VA). In a second stage, we will analyse citizens’ discourse, which was collected during two citizen panels on Belgian federalism, and evaluate to what extent these dominant metaphors determined the citizens’ perception and comprehension of the Belgian political situation.

The aim of this study is to give some guidelines for a phenomenological metaphysics. The author first questions the possibility and relevance of applying the phenomenological method in metaphysics, in order to outline a metaphysics that would be not only a "metaphysical systematics" (in Peter Simons's sense), but also a phenomenological and "constitutive" metaphysics. Then he succinctly explores some basic questions of contemporary metaphysics, in a dialogue with the recent developments of "analytical" metaphysics: Armstrong's factualism, the relationship between logic and ontology, the ontological status of universals, maximalism and negative states of affairs, ontological dependence, Moore's paradox, etc. [less ▲]

This paper, which is the sequel of a previous essay published in the same collection, provides an overview of some basic problems related to the notion of a phenomenological metaphysics. The key thesis in the paper is that the very starting point of all "critical" metaphysics should first consist in an intensional interpretation of existential propositions. Starting from the idea (for him distinctive of the phenomenological approach in general) that intensionality with an 's' now needs to be described in terms of the intentionality with a 't', the author tries to outline some implications and consequences of applying the methods used in phenomenology to metaphysical problems. He then briefly surveys some of the possible applications of this view, especially as to the theory of truth. [less ▲]

In area CA1 of hippocampal slices, a single 1-sec train of 100-Hz stimulation generally triggers a short-lasting long-term potentiation (S-LTP) of 1-2 h. Here, we found that when such a train was applied 45 min after application of the small conductance Ca2+-activated K+ (SK) channel blocker apamin, it induced a long-lasting LTP (L-LTP) of several hours, instead of an S-LTP. Apamin-induced SK channel blockage is known to resist washing. Nevertheless, the aforementioned effect is not a mere delayed effect; it is metaplastic. Indeed, when a single train was delivered to the Schaffer's collaterals during apamin application, it induced an S-LTP, like in the control situation. At the moment of this LTP induction (15th min of apamin application), the SK channel blockage was nevertheless complete. Indeed, at that time, under the influence of apamin, the amplitude of the series of field excitatory postsynaptic potentials (fEPSPs) triggered by a stimulation train was increased. We found that the metaplastic effect of apamin on LTP was crucially dependent on the NO-synthase pathway, whereas the efficacy of the NMDA receptors was not modified at the time of its occurrence. We also found that apamin produced an increase in paired-pulse facilitation not during, but after, the application of the drug. Finally, we found that the induction of each of these two metaplastic phenomena was mediated by NMDA receptors. A speculative unitary hypothesis to explain these phenomena is proposed. [less ▲]

Population viability analysis (PVA) and metapopulation theory are valuable tools to model the dynamics of spatially structured populations. In this article we used a spatially realistic population dynamic model to simulate the trajectory of a Proclossiana eunomia metapopulation in a network of habitat patches located in the Belgian Ardenne. Sensitivity analysis was used to evaluate the relative influence of the different parameters on the model output. We simulated habitat loss by removing a percentage of the original habitat, proportionally in each habitat patch. Additionally, we evaluated isolation and fragmentation effects by removing and dividing habitat parches from the network, respectively. The model predicted a slow decline of the metapopulation size and occupancy. Extinction risks predicted by the model were highly sensitive to environmental stochasticity and carrying capacity. For a determined level of habitat destruction, the expected lifetime of the metapopulation was highly dependent on the spatial configuration of the landscape. Moreover, when the proportion of removed habitat is above 40% of the original habitat, the loss of whole patches invariably leads to the strongest reduction in metapopulation viability. © 2002 Éditions scientifiques et médicales Elsevier SAS.

In the two Higgs doublet model, there is the possibility that the vacuum where the universe resides in is metastable. We present the tree-level bounds on the scalar potential parameters which have to be obeyed to prevent that situation. Analytical expressions for those bounds are shown for the most used potential, that with a softly broken Z 2 symmetry. The impact of those bounds on the model’s phenomenology is discussed in detail, as well as the importance of the current LHC results in determining whether the vacuum we live in is or is not stable. We demonstrate how the vacuum stability bounds can be obtained for the most generic CP-conserving potential, and provide a simple method to implement them. [less ▲]

Auroral spectra have been obtained in the 3380- to 3560-A region to study the forbidden N I 4S-2P doublet at 3466 A. The forbidden N I 3466 A/N2 Vegard-Kaplan ratio is found to remain constant. This is in agreement with the results of a model calculation showing that the dominant source of N(2P) atoms is dissociative excitation of N2 by fast electrons, and the major quenching agent is atomic oxygen. A value of about 5 x 10 to the 9th/cu cm sec is deduced for the ratio of the N(2P) quantum yield to the atomic oxygen deactivation coefficient. [less ▲]

Introduction: Peri-tonsillar abscess remains one of the most frequent serous complications of oropharyngeal or dental infections. It can evolve to parapharyngeal and/or retropharyngeal spaces. It can be life-threatning and, more rarely, neurological complications are described. Observations: We report the case of a 56 year old woman who developed within few days a progressive tetraparesia due to cervical medullary compression. This compression was consecutive to an epidurite which was a complication of a retropharyngeal abscess. The only surgical act was a cervicotomy to drain the abscess and identify the pathological germ. A targeted antibiotherapy was quickly begun. The recovery was obtained rather quickly and the neurological evolution was good. After one year, the cervical spine presents a post-infectious deformation without sign of root or spinal-cord compression. Conclusion: A cervical tetraparesia induced by spondylodiscitis and epiduritis following a retropharyngeal abscess with Staphylococcus aureus is a rare complication. Adequate diagnosis, as fast as possible, is mandatory in order to carry out an adapted antibiotherapy in the hopes of a complete recovery. The place of surgery on the spine remains to be specified.

A case of carcinomatous monoarthritis involving the left knee due to colonic adenocarcinoma is described. Large recurrent synovial effusion, that will be later hematic, lytic lesion of the bones and chondrolysis were noted. Knee positron emitting tomography scan using FDG (FDG-PET) revealed a diffuse increased uptake in soft tissues assumed to be synovium, the hypertrophy of which was identified by ultrasonography. Whole body PET scan showed extensive lymph node, visceral and bone metastases, suggesting that the increase in the synovium could also be of metastatic origin. The final diagnosis of synovial carcinomatosis secondary to the known colonic adenocarcinoma was confirmed by histological analysis of biopsies obtained by arthroscopy. A review of the literature is realised. To our knowledge, this is the first synovial metastasis studied by FDG-PET. [less ▲]
