Poppo, the abbot at Stavelot-Malmedy died in the abbey of Marchiennes in Hainaut on 25 January 1048. The scene of the saint's death, which his hagiographer described in grand manner some ten years later, deserves to be examined closely, as indeed the staging of his funeral, this stepping onto the threshold of "rebirth" into eternal life and sainthood (dies natalis). The Vita Popponis follows the rules of the hagiographic genre, in which the monk's death is inevitably highlighted. [less ▲]

Results of a comparative geographic analysis of 3 dimensional characters (in males) and of plumage (in both sexes) in sympatric populations of the House sparrow, Passer domesticus, and of the Spanish sparrow, Passer hispaniolensis, collected in February and March in western Algeria. Tail length shows a significant geographic variation in males of both sparrows, and wing length in males of Spanish sparrow. Coincidence of geographical variation in feather dimensions of the two taxa suggests a parallelism, owing to common environmental pressures. Plumage colour of the House sparrow varies geographically : on that account the specimens collected in Bechar oasis differed from those examined in northern localities. [less ▲]

This note compares 5 external morphological characters of sparrows, Passer domesticus and Passer hispaniolensis, from one locality of western Algeria. Age variations, in the Spanish sparrow, and sexual variations, in the both sparrows, are also examined. These analysis show the following results : - Spanish sparrow average larger than House sparrow in bill size, but average smaller in tail length ; - in both sparrows, the strongest correlation is between wing length and tail length ; - at a multivariate level, results of component analysis are such that two relatively distinct clusters of male are present. These results support my conclusions that Orania possess two populations of sparrows (Metzmacher, 1984). However, this technique give only a weak discrimination of the females phenotypes ; - in males of Spanish sparrow, there is a correlation between color of the heel feathers and cranial ossification. During a part of the year, this color can be used for age determination ; - adult Spanish sparrow of both sexes average larger than first-year in tail length ; - in both sparrows, males average larger than females in wing length, but the sexes do not differ in bill size ; - in Spanish sparrow, sexual size dimorphism seems to increase with age. The possible signification of the principal morphological variations is discussed. [less ▲]

Qui était saint Remacle? Comment vivaient les moines de son époque? Quel message a voulu transmettre dans ses écrits le fameux moine théologien du IXe siècle? La grande église abbatiale de Stavelot était-elle vraiment munie de splendides vitraux dès l'époque romane? La crosse abbatiale retrouvée par les archéologues en 1994 a-t-elle réellement appartenu à l'abbé Wibald, ambassadeur de l'empereur? A quoi pouvaient donc servir les deux médaillons représentant le soleil et la lune, trouvés en fouilles? Que peut-on bien lire dans le beau petit manuscrit déposé par les moines de Wavreumont au Musée de la Principauté? Et les moines de Wavreumont, justement, depuis quand perpétuent-ils la vie monastique dans l'ancienne principauté? L'histoire de Stavelot-Malmedy est ici abordée par le biais de questions aussi variées qu'originales. L'ouvrage n'est pas exhaustif; il n'en n'est que plus timulant. [less ▲]

In ancient Greece, Moirai are divine powers related to the ‘share’ that everyone receives and mythic tales where they appear mainly associate to birth and death. As traditional spinners and weavers, such goddesses rule over everyone’s life course and over the various patterns of the life thread. Cult evidence related to the Moirai is neither numerous nor explicit about their worshippers’ expectations. Nevertheless, myths and rituals are not unrelated bodies of evidence, but specific languages, which resonate inside the mental frame of poets who narrated tales and worshippers who performed rituals. Both of these aspects of the Greek knowledge about Moirai are closely interconnected and studied as such in the present work. Powers of distribution, reward and regulation, Moirai interact with the stability warranted by Zeus’ authority on a mythical level and take also part in such a balance within human communities.

One near infrared (NIR) reflectance and five dielectric moisture meters were tested for their capability of measuring moisture content (MC) in solid biofuels. Ninety-eight samples were tested at up to eight moisture levels covering the MC range from fresh fuel to approximately 10% MC (w.b.). The fuel types ranged from typical solid biofuels such as coniferous and deciduous wood chips over short rotation coppice (SRC) to sunflower seed and olive stones. The most promising calibrations were obtained with the NIR reflection method and two dielectric devices where the sample is placed in a container integrated in the device. The calibration equations developed show that there is a profound influence from both laboratory and fuel type. It is suggested that individual calibrations that are based on the specific fuel types used at the individual heating plant could be applied. [less ▲]

The aim of the present study was to develop and validate a near infrared method able to accurately determine a moisture content of pharmaceutical pellets ranging from 1% to 8% in order to check their moisture content conformity. A calibration and validation set were designed for the conception and evaluation of the method adequacy. An experimental protocol was then followed, involving two operators, independent production campaign batches and different temperatures for data acquisition. On the basis of this protocol, prediction models based on partial least squares (PLS) regression were then carried out. Conventional criteria such as the R(2), the root mean square errors of calibration and prediction (RMSEC and RMSEP) as well as the number of PLS factors enabled the selection of three preliminary models. However, such criteria did not clearly demonstrate the model's ability to give accurate predictions over the whole analyzed water content range. Consequently, a novel approach based on accuracy profiles which allow the selection of the most fitted model for purpose was used. According to this novel approach, the model using multiplicative scatter correction (MSC) pre-treatment was obviously the most suitable. Indeed, the resulting accuracy profile clearly showed that this model was able to determine moisture content over the range of 1-8% with a very acceptable accuracy. The present study confirmed that NIR spectroscopy could be used in the PAT concept as a non-invasive, non-destructive and fast technique for moisture content determination in pharmaceutical pellets. In addition, facing the limit of the classical and commonly used criteria, the use of accuracy profiles proved to be useful as a powerful decision tool to demonstrate the suitability of the proposed analytical method.

Straw bales technology for buildings is developing in Belgium as in many other countries. The market is growing but significant uncertainties are left concerning how to model its dynamical hygrothermal performances and its long term behaviour. The present paper presents the preliminary analysis conducted on material parameters and component’s response to dynamic heat and moisture solicitations. The simulations use WUFI Pro software based on material parameters form literature and both reference climate files for Belgium and theoretical climates to analyse the interactions between straw bale walls and finishing materials and their influence on component performances and durability. A specific prefabricated wall element sold on Belgian market is detailed and introduced in simulations. The influence on comfort feelings and indoor air quality are discussed with a focus on component´s thermal inertia and moisture regulation capacity. The paper concludes with recommendations on wall composition to help straw bale technologies to develop in building market of Belgium and other countries. [less ▲]

The knowledge of internal moisture profiles which develop during drying is essential for model validation purposes, but they are difficult to determine experimentally. This paper shows that X-ray microtomography, together with image analysis, provides an accurate, non destructive and easy to use technique to determine moisture profiles. Results reported concern the drying of wastewater sludges whose management is becoming a real environmental challenge. An analysis of the development of moisture gradients at the sample external wall shows an influence of drying operating conditions. Finally, mass diffusion coefficients are estimated from the knowledge of both the moisture gradients and the drying flux. [less ▲]
