This paper will approach the celebrations of the canonization of St. Ignatius and St. Xavier in different localities of the Southern Netherlands over the course of 1622 as performances of emotion. We will analyze little known visual and textual testimonials of festivals and theatrical representations in Antwerp, Douai, Brussels, Dunkerque and Leuven to examine which means were used to represent, convey and enhance emotions, which actors were involved, how emotions were meant to address and affect the audience, and to what end emotions were activated. The double canonization of 1622 consecrated the Jesuits as stalwarts of the Roman papacy. In the Southern Netherlands, the celebrations of 1622 were a key moment in confirming the legitimacy of the order by displaying both how it was embedded in the local political and religious arena, and how it mastered the most advanced artistic means to support its mission. After a sketch of the celebrations and their political and religious context, we will analyze how and why emotion was performed in three steps. The sources attach enormous attention to the material, architectural and urban setting of the celebrations, by emphasizing the splendor and artistic sophistication of the events, and by pointing out the prestigious patronage that had accrued around them. We will examine whether and how the sources charged the material context of the celebration with emotion. What was the intended effect of this context on the audience? How did this context enable the performance of emotion in different forms of public display (pageantry, performances, …)? In order to answer this last question, in a second step we will have a closer look at the Triumphus dedicated to St Ignatius and St. Xavier performed in Brussels. We will examine how, in this ensemble, the material context is activated by the movement of the viewer. The description of the Triumphus singles out moments of transition as instances of heightened emotivity, suggesting that emotions are not mobilized by singular details but by overall views that impress themselves when the beholder crosses a treshold. In a third step we will describe the intended effect of the performance of emotions as a sacer horror, the bodily manifestation of religious awe, the organic sensation of respect mixed with fear and wonder felt in the presence of gods or cosmic forces. The performance of emotions, engendered by multiple layers of transformation (of the material context by means of ephemeral architecture, of the views and the experiences of the viewer, and ultimately, of their affective state) was directed at effectuating a lasting change of heart.

Interactions of malignant or non-malignant human and rodent cells with the vascular wall were studied using perfused human umbilical cord veins. The integrity of perfused endothelium was confirmed by morphological and functional criteria. Highly malignant cells in vivo adhered to the endothelial cells, as shown by scanning electron microscopy. The specific attachment of radiolabelled malignant cells to the whole vein was already maximal within 30-60 min and remained stable for perfusion flow rates ranging between 10 and 60 ml/min. It increased proportionally to the number of cells infused and could be modulated by human platelets, human fibronectin and rabbit anti-laminin antibodies. In contrast, the binding of human or rodent non-malignant cells in vivo, of human red blood cells and of human platelets to the endothelial cells was negligible under similar experimental conditions. This perfusion system therefore represents a new model for elucidating some mechanisms involved in tumour cell arrest in vivo. [less ▲]

A study was carried out in Niamey (capital city of Niger) to explore the market gardening periurban system. This activity is an option to minimize the risk of urban food insecurity in the Republic of Niger. In Niamey, you have two traditional areas to practise the market gardening production: Gamkalle and Yantala. The investigations study the area of Gamkalle. This study revealed more than 600 market gardening producers in Gamkalle. 50 producers of Gamkalle have been interviewed. These producers predominantly belong to the ethnic group “Zarma” and market gardening is their main economic activity. The principal period of production is during the dry season, the producers cultivate lettuce, cabbage, tomato, sweet pepper, beetroot, celery, carrot, parsley. Despite the higher costs notably in particular for input, the incomes generated by this activity are very high ($ 2805.23/year/acre). In conclusion, market gardening presents an opportunity for urban dwellers to increase and diversify their incomes and obtain food security. Nevertheless, there are many constraints to develop this production: land tenure security, pollution by industrial production and access to quality seeds, pesticides and fertilizers. [less ▲]

We report the case of a 31-year-old woman who died in a context of haemophagocytic syndrome with multiple opportunist infections:viral, mycobacterial and fungal. To our knowledge, this is the tenth case of invasive aspergillosis manifested by an aspergillus pericarditis with cardiac tamponade. Search for HIV infection, neoplasia, haematological malignancies was negative. In addition, the patient carried on a nonviral, non-ethylic cirrhosis, the etiology of which remained unknow. We will particularly develop the aspergillus pericarditis with cardiac tamponade and the haemophagocytic syndrome. [less ▲]

Pericopsis elata (Fabaceae – assamela, afrormosia, kokrodua) is a high valued timber species of the moist semi deciduous African forests. Because of logging which started more than 50 years ago, it is considered as threatened and included on both IUCN Red List and CITES Appendix II. Nevertheless, there is still little information available on the species ecology: essential biological parameters controlling its population dynamics remain unknown. Our study first aims at improving the knowledge of its main ecological parameters, then at assessing the impact of selective logging on its populations in a forest management unit in Cameroon (ca 120,000 ha). After inventorying the species (sampling rate of 1.2%), mortality and growth were assessed over continuous 5 and 2-year periods in unlogged and logged areas, respectively. Phenology was monitored in the unlogged forest during 5 years (leaf shedding and flushing, flowering, ripe and unripe fruiting). The population structure followed a bell-shaped curve. Mean annual diameter increments in both environments did not differ significantly between unlogged and logged areas (0.29±0.06 0.31±0.04 cm for unlogged and logged areas, respectively). P. elata is a deciduous species that flowers at the end of the main dry season (Marsh-April). The minimum reproduction and effective flowering diameters were, respectively, 32 and 37 cm. Fruit maturation took place during 7 months (the seed rain occurs in December-January), but all unripe fruits abort 3 years out of 5. With a minimum logging diameter of 90 cm, the recovery rate computed over a 30-year period was greater than 100%. Selective logging harvested only 12.1% of the total number of seed trees and had little influence on the species biological parameters. Securing sufficient regeneration as a post-logging action is probably the most important consideration for achieving long-term sustainability. [less ▲]

Pericopsis elata (gregarious Fabaceae), a moist semi-deciduous hardwood logged in Central African forests, is on the IUCN Red List and in CITES Appendix II. Our study evaluated its main ecological and pedological parameters in Cameroon. We obtained a mean diameter increment of 0.32 ± 0.04 cm.year–1. Minimum fertile and effective fruiting diameters were 32 and 35 cm, respectively. Flowering started in March-April, and fruits ripened over 7 months. Seed rain was studied in 1 × 45 m cleared corridors in each cardinal direction around 4 isolated mother trees. Indehiscent pods (average weight: 131.6 ± 10.1 cg) were dispersed mainly to the west: 86% of the variation of the number of collected fruits could be explained by the distance to the mother tree and the direction (GLM analysis, p < 0.001). The proportion of seeds eaten by insect larvae depended on the mother tree (10–95% – χ2 test, p < 0.001). Soils were compared at a regional scale: soils with P. elata contain higher levels of C (2.2 ± 0.5 SD- g.100g–1), Fe (261 ± 83 mg.kg–1), and P (33 ± 10 mg.kg–1), and were more acidic (pH 4.0 ± 0.2). A planting method in logging gaps is currently being tested taking into account physicochemical soil parameters [less ▲]

Blood vessel leakiness is an early, transient event in acute inflammation but can also persist as vessels undergo remodeling in sustained inflammation. Angiopoietin/Tie2 signaling can reduce the leakiness through changes in endothelial cells. The role of pericytes in this action has been unknown. We used the selective PDGF-B-blocking oligonucleotide aptamer AX102 to determine whether disruption of pericyte-endothelial crosstalk alters vascular leakiness or remodeling in the airways of mice under four different conditions: i) baseline, ii) acute inflammation induced by bradykinin, iii) sustained inflammation after 7-day infection by the respiratory pathogen Mycoplasma pulmonis, or iv) leakage after bradykinin challenge in the presence of vascular stabilization by the angiopoietin-1 (Ang1) mimic COMP-Ang1 for 7 days. AX102 reduced pericyte coverage but did not alter the leakage of microspheres from tracheal blood vessels at baseline or after bradykinin; however, AX102 exaggerated leakage at 7 days after M. pulmonis infection and increased vascular remodeling and disease severity at 14 days. AX102 also abolished the antileakage effect of COMP-Ang1 at 7 days. Together, these findings show that pericyte contributions to endothelial stability have greater dependence on PDGF-B during the development of sustained inflammation, when pericyte dynamics accompany vascular remodeling, than under baseline conditions or in acute inflammation. The findings also show that the antileakage action of Ang1 requires PDGF-dependent actions of pericytes in maintaining endothelial stability. [less ▲]
