The Thousand and One Nights have fascinated millions of readers and have spawned a variety of scholarly literature. Analyses of the tales are based on existing editions of the Arabic text, almost all dating back to the 19th century, and none of them completely reliable. However, since Zotenberg’s classification of the manuscripts of the Nights in the 19th century, research on the manuscripts has not really progressed. One of the groups Zotenberg described, called now the ZER, “Zotenberg's Egyptian Recension”, gathers together the manuscripts containing exactly 1001 nights, copied in Egypt at the end of the 18th or at the beginning of the 19th century. All the manuscripts of the ZER are in four volumes and present the same distribution of nights; they also share many common codicological features. A precise codicological analysis of each of those manuscripts was carried out. The collected information was compared with the conclusions of the literary and philological study of each manuscript’s text in a complete approach to the manuscripts, seen as objects as well as texts. The Nights were written for the bourgeoisie, in their own language, Middle-Arabic. This level of language was deliberately used for certain literary productions, such as literature intended for entertainement. A close study of the language of the manuscripts provides information on this level of language still little known. The study was carried out on Jānšāh tale, and a synoptic critical edition —confronting the manuscripts to the ancient editions of Būlāq and Calcutta II, collated for the occasion— and French translation of the latter were prepared. In brief, codicological analyses provide useful information for the research in codicology and for the classification of the manuscripts, a prerequisite for the critical edition. The analysis of the text’s language makes an important contribution to a neglected field. The text of the critical edition constitutes a solid basis for the investigations into the contents of the story. [less ▲]

Les Mille et Une Nuits fascinent ; elles ont d’ailleurs généré de nombreuses études. Celles-ci se basent le plus souvent sur les éditions arabes du XIXe siècle, bien qu’aucune d’entre elles ne soit réellement fiable. Depuis la classification des manuscrits des Nuits par Zotenberg, au XIXe siècle, la recherche dans ce domaine n’a pas progressé. L’un des groupes défini par Zotenberg rassemble les manuscrits, comprenant effectivement 1001 nuits, copiés en Égypte à la fin du XVIIIe ou au début du XIXe siècle. Ce groupe constitue mon corpus de thèse. Ces manuscrits ont été l’objet d’une analyse codicologique détaillée et les informations résultant de celle-ci sont confrontées aux résultats de l’étude littéraire du texte, dans une approche complète, matérielle et textuelle. Les Mille et Une Nuits furent écrites pour des bourgeois, dans leur langue, le moyen arabe, un niveau de langue encore peu connu. Mes recherches comprennent donc une analyse linguistiques des Nuits, centrée sur le conte de Ḥāsib Karīm ad-Dīn, dont je réalise l’édition critique et la traduction française. [less ▲]

The Arabian Nights are universally, but only superficially known. The historical editions present an altered text, only the manuscripts being faithful to it. Amazingly enough, these are not much studied. My research deals with a group of manuscripts of the Arabian Nights, the so-called ZER (« Zotenberg’s Egyptian Recension »), supposedly dating to the end of the 18th or the beginning of the 19th century. I am both interested in the text (its structure, level of language, contents) and in the manuscripts themselves, considering them through a multidisciplinary approach. The first part of my research is a thorough codicological analysis of each manuscript of the group. Its results improve our knowledge of the manuscripts (among others, of the date of their copy) and of the text. A concrete example is given here, with the study of various watermarks found in the papers of the manuscripts. [less ▲]

Progesterone (PRE) or glucocorticoid receptor (GRE) DNA binding sites are often found clustered with binding sites for other transcription factors. Individual protein binding sites were tested without the influence of adjacent factors by analyzing isolated combinations of several transcription factor binding sites with PREs or GREs. All show strong synergistic effects on steroid induction. The degree of synergism is inversely related to the strength of the GRE. Thus, a steroid responsive unit can be composed of several modules that, if positioned correctly, act synergistically. [less ▲]

This article concerns the trans-editing (simultaneous translation and editing) of coverage of the 2008 US presidential elections on BBC World Service websites. We investigate how English-language source texts were reworked in Arabic, Persian, Tamil, and Turkish, with a detailed analysis of the structuring, content, and rhetoric of a sample text in English and in these other languages. This analysis shows that, while the BBC’s corporate aim is to provide a univocal service across its multilingual output, this aim is in tension with widely differing journalistic norms, and differing assumptions about audience knowledge and needs, in each of the World Service’s language departments. The ‘melody’ remains essentially the same, but it is orchestrated differently by each department. [less ▲]

The Walloon forest taken as a whole can be regarded as typical of a rural area, although its proximity to densely populated areas gives it a peri-urban character. It is visited by the local population as well as by tourists (including from neighboring countries). To provide spatial information on the level of Wallonia woodland visitation, a survey was conducted among managers of Forest Service districts (also called ‘‘cantonnements’’). The aim was to map the woodlands to show spatial patterns of visitation levels, and analyze them qualitatively to determine the influence factors. This map identifies regional hubs of recreation woodlands and, conversely, areas where the recreational function is much less important. The level of visitation was scaled in four levels ranging from low to very high. The mapping was supplemented with a statistical analysis of data collected from the forest managers and also from different GIS-layers (slope, hydrology, land use, etc.). An equation using the level of visitation as a dependent variable was fitted to a set of characteristics of the woodland with an ordered Logit model. The results show that type of ownership, type of forest, and recreational facilities significantly influence the level of woodland visitation. They also show that woodland visitors prefer any type of forest to mainly coniferous woodland. These results and the analysis of the map are particularly useful for developing forest policy and tourism as well as managing the forest. [less ▲]

In the context of the MARS Project of the Commission of the European Community, an agricultural inventory was carried out in Belgium which became the first North-European country to be covered by a complete survey in this program. Besides the statistical figures relative to crop acreage estimation issued from this survey, a regular satellite map of the land uses was published at the scale of 1: 400 000. The Laboratory of Remote Sensing and Forest Management of the University of Gent was entrusted with the task of doing agricultural estimation while the SURFACES Laboratory of the University of Liège was put in charge of the geometrical and mapping procedures.

Transcription of the CA9 gene coding for a tumor-associated carbonic anhydrase IX (CA IX) isoform is regulated by hypoxia via the hypoxia-inducible factor 1 (HIF-1) and by high cell density via the phosphatidylinositol-3-kinase (PI3K) pathway. We examined the role of the mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) pathway in the control of CA9 gene expression. Inhibition of MAPK signaling by U0126 in HeLa cells led to reduced activity of the PR1-HRE-luc CA9 promoter construct and decreased CA IX protein levels in dense culture as well as in hypoxia. Similar reduction was obtained by expression of a dominant-negative ERK1 mutant and was also observed in U0126-treated HIF-1alpha-deficient Ka13 cells. Simultaneous treatment with the MAPK and PI3K inhibitors U0126 and LY 294002 had stronger effect than individual inhibition of these pathways. Taken together, our results suggest that besides the PI3K pathway, the MAPK cascade is involved in the regulation of CA9 gene expression under both hypoxia and high cell density. [less ▲]

There is an increasing demand for regional oceanic models capable of simulating the regional ocean circulation. Accurate surface forcing functions are necessary to achieve this goal. Here we present analyses of several data sets covering the contiguous eastern Gulf of Mexico and southeast Atlantic: a) Wind fields resulting from the blending by optimal interpolation (OI) of NCEP, in situ and QuikSCAT winds. These winds show improvements in the coastal region, where orography and coastal boundary layer effects are important and under-resolved. b) Cloud-free SST, created by merging several SST sources using OI. c) Cloud-free chlorophyll, also created using OI. d) Surface drifter trajectories, generated from geostrophic currents and used to track water masses, with application to the Mississippi River outflow subsequent to Hurricane Katrina. e) Multivariate cloud-free products, using SST and chlorophyll, and SST and QuikSCAT winds, to obtain more accurate reconstructions than the monovariate equivalents. We use an EOF-based method, called DINEOF, which has proven to give similar results to OI-based reconstruction but up to 30 times faster, making it very suitable for operational applications. These data sets, originally created for the West Florida Shelf, have been expanded for the Southeast Atlantic Coastal Ocean Observing System (SEACOOS) and for broader environmental applications.

We report in this contribution the successful application of chemical force microscopy to study aging of polymer surfaces at the submicroscopic scale. Adhesion force mapping using tips modified with methyland hydroxyl-terminated alkanethiols was used to probe the chemical composition of polypropylene surfaces as a function of aging time. We have measured adhesion force distributions on polypropylene melt-pressed films stabilized with antioxidants, process-stabilizing agents, and UV-light stabilizers. These adhesion force distributions were correlated with the additive distribution at the surface. We were able to evidence modifications of the local adhesion properties on the polymer surface due to material aging. These results support the conclusion that the UV-light stabilizer migrates toward the surface and forms a film that makes the surface less hydrophobic. Laterally resolved adhesion force maps show chemically heterogeneous surfaces on a sub-100 nm scale [less ▲]
