Investir : c’est croire en l’avenir. C’est renoncer en partie au présent pour donner vie au futur. C’est tourner le dos aux « bouffeurs d’espoir » et à l’illusoire confort du statu quo. Enfin, et surtout, c’est oser « oser » ! La distance séparant le discours public de la performance économique avérée suffit à démontrer l’incompréhension des mécanismes de création de richesse de ceux qui sont censés en avoir la maîtrise et/ou les mettre en œuvre. Il est peu de domaines où les illusions, et autres idées fausses, ont un succès tel qu’elles amènent à s’interroger sur le profit que d’aucuns pourraient en tirer… L’objet de cet ouvrage est de partager le fruit d’une réflexion menée sur le thème de l’investissement, forme proéminente et condition première de l’activité économique, au moment où certains s’interrogent sur son encadrement et cherchent à en limiter la liberté. Il aborde les bouleversements technologiques les plus significatifs ; l’art et la science d’investir avec Internet ; la recherche d’opportunités nouvelles ; et, se termine par quelques observations et souhaits quant à « l’état » du monde !

Abstract : Belgian family luxury Houses are increasingly confrontated to a problem of independence caused by the growing influence of great financial groups and of private investment funds, on the one hand, and by a problem of image due to their Belgian origin, on the other hand. Nevertheless, their growing need for internationalization in order to counter the threats of the market and to seize opportunities leads them to concede one part of their control to institutional investors. The interest of this research is to study the potential impact, as perceived by the leaders of Belgian luxury Houses, of the venue of public institutional investors in their capital structure. We show that this perceived impact oscillates between sacralization and diabolisation of public institutional investors. [less ▲]

To cope with the demands of engine manufacturers and other users, superalloys have been brought to work in service at temperatures which represent a very substantial fraction of their melting point. In addition to high temperature capability, they must exhibit mechanical strength, not only under static, but also under cyclic stressing conditions, and offer appropriate oxidation and corrosion resistance. This can only be achieved by tailoring their chemistry and processing conditions to the particular needs of the application under consideration. The evolution of component design and alloy chemistry, and some compositional effects and processing improvements in cast Ni-base superalloys are discussed. [less ▲]

L’inviolabilité du domicile est une notion fondamentale et incontournable dans un État démocratique digne de ce nom. Il s’agit d’un principe impératif mais pas indérogeable. En effet, l’État peut, dans des cas relativement restreints, violer le domicile d’une personne, ceci uniquement en vertu d’une loi (au sens strict) et dans les formes qu’elle prescrit. Une violation illégale du domicile constituerait une entrave grave aux droits fondamentaux du citoyen. [less ▲]

Antarctica is a continent dominated by microbes. A surprisingly large biodiversity of well-adapted microorganisms live permanently in a variety of habitats, ranging from ice-free to permanently frozen areas. Recent studies revealed that some microbial groups exhibit biogeographic patterns, include endemic taxa and have survived in refugia since the formation of the continental ice sheet. Microbial habitats are under constant pressure due to anthropogenic activities which may introduce non-indigenous microorganisms, via bodies, clothing, cargo and food. New ‘entry points‘ for microbial contamination are a consequence of the increase and diversification of tourism and research stations. Climatic changes might furthermore increase the probability of the successful establishment of populations of non-native taxa. The impacts of such introductions are still unknown, and might lead to a loss of the native microbial biodiversity, or its modification, which in turn might affect ecosystem functioning. The recent technical progress in molecular methodologies have generated very sensitive high-throughput analyses and have the potential to describe microbial communities with unprecedented detail. However, we may be losing the pristine Antarctic areas that would enable scientists to study the native microbial flora, its functions and properties. The Protocol on Environmental Protection of the Antarctic Treaty foresees the designation of Antarctic Specially Protected Areas (ASPA) to protect “outstanding environmental, scientific, historic, aesthetic, or wilderness values, any combination of those values, or on-going or planned scientific research” (http://www.ats.aq/e/ep_protected.htm). However, the designation of ASPAs has not followed a systematic planning, and often focused on the conservation of large mammals, birds and/or vegetation and other iconic species. Microorganisms have the handicap of generally being invisible without a microscope and relevant expertise, and require molecular methods for species delineation. Terrestrial habitats are protected in 55 out of the 72 existing ASPAs (in total less than 700 km2). Microalgae are protected in 16 ASPAs, cyanobacteria in 7 and snow microalgae in 3. Only 8 ASPAs mention ‘Microbial habitats’, ‘microbial communities’ or ‘soil and lake microflora’. One tool of the Protocol that could be specifically used to protect microbial habitats is the creation of inviolate areas where a special entry permit is required (inside ASPAs, for example), and quarantine equipment should be worn. These zones could be set aside for future research and after a few decades, they would be unique examples of truly pristine habitats, and representative of the native microbial diversity. Examples of this are ASPA 126, Byers Peninsula, and ASPA 172, Lower Taylor Glacier and Blood Falls. Such an option would require discussions and a consensus among scientists of other disciplines than microbiology to select these regions, and develop careful management protocols of the sites and their vicinity. In addition, gaps in our knowledge should be addressed, like the extent of transportation of microorganisms by natural means (winds, birds...), and the probability of subsequent colonization of new areas by microorganisms coming from other Antarctic regions or from outside Antarctica. Let’s hope that the dialogue between scientists and policy makers will improve the conservation of Antarctic microbial diversity and safeguard the possibility to study these unique communities in the future by the next generation of scientists, with the most advanced techniques of the time.

In the areas of design, especially in architectural design, collaboration has become an important challenge. The specialization of skills increase, work teams are more and more extensive and the geographic distance between them increases too. The economic and ecological stakes related to remote collaboration are an evidence. This context involves the need to support most efficiently possible remote working meetings. We present the Distributed Collaborative Digital Studio (DSDC), a tool designed to recreate, in distant situations, the context of copresence meetings. This shared environment is created in the “invisible computer” approach. The idea is that the tool should disappear from user’s consciousness. Indeed, creative design activities require some fluidity in their process. Therefore, any involuntary interruption created by the system can potentially brake creativity. In this perspective, we investigate specifically the “invisibility” of our environment. To do this, we propose a framework for the operationalization of the concept and a methodology to test the system invisibility. This methodology was applied through a case study consisting of a corpus of 12 hours of remote collaborative design sessions with the DSDC. We highlight the learning effects while using our system, conclude on its effectiveness and discuss our methodology. [less ▲]
