[more ▼]In order to better understand the fundamental issue regarding the compatibility between the quark-shell picture and that of resonances in meson-nucleon scattering in large $N_c$ QCD we extend the work of Cohen and Lebed on mixed symmetric $\ell$ = 1 baryons to analyze excited states with $\ell$ = 3. We give an explicit proof on the degeneracy of mass eigenvalues of a simple Hamiltonian including operators up to order $\mathcal{O}(N^0_c)$ \emph{i. e.} neglecting $1/N_c$ corrections in the quark-shell picture in the large $N_c$ limit. We obtain three degenerate multiplets formed of $\ell = 3$ states, as in the case of $\ell$ = 1 baryons. The compatibility between this picture and that of resonances in meson-nucleon scattering is discussed in the light of the present results.

[more ▼]We discuss the compatibility between the quark-shell picture and the meson-nucleon scattering picture in large $N_c$ QCD for mixed symmetric $\ell$ = 1 states previously analyzed by using a simple Hamiltonian including operators up to order $\mathcal{O}(N^0_c)$ defined in the standard ground state symmetric core + excited quark procedure. Here we introduce a Hamiltonian of order $\mathcal{O}(N^0_c)$ defined in a new approach where the separation of the system into two parts is not required. Three degenerate sets of states (towers) with the same quantum numbers as in the scattering picture and in the standard procedure are obtained. Thus the compatibility is equally achieved. The eigenvalues of the presently chosen Hamiltonian also have simple analytic expressions, depending linearly on the three dynamical coefficients entering the Hamiltonian. This reinforces the validity of the new approach which had already successfully described excited negative parity baryons in a large energy range.

[more ▼]The prion protein (PrP) when misfolded into the pathogenic conformer PrPSc is the major causative agent of several lethal transmissible spongiform encephalopathies in mammals. Studies of evolutionary pressure on the corresponding gene using different datasets have yielded conflicting results. In addition, putative PrP or PrP interacting partners with strong similarity to PrP such as the doppel protein have not been examined to determine if the same evolutionary mechanisms apply to prion paralogs or if there are coselected sites that might indicate how and where the proteins interact. We examined several taxonomic groups that contain model organisms of prion diseases focusing on primates, bovids, and an expanded dataset of rodents for selection pressure on the prion gene (PRNP) and doppel gene (PRND) individually and for coevolving sites within. Overall, the results clearly indicate that both proteins are under strong selective constraints with relaxed selection on amino acid residues connecting α-helices 1 and 2. © 2014 Springer Science+Business Media New York.

[more ▼]The main concepts dealing with negative refraction are clarified in order to understand if a high conductive metal layer thinner than the wavelength can really be considered as a metamaterial with a negative refraction index. The theoretical method to find the direction of phase velocity is clearly explained. The use of the causality principle is presented. We discuss why the negative refractive metamaterial has to be regarded as a dispersive one. Discussions are illustrated by means of FDTD simulations. The superlens application is presented. We explain why it is not obvious to consider a thin metal layer as a negative refractive material. [less ▲]Detailed reference viewed: 45 (7 ULg) Negative Relative Clauses in Late Egyptian.

[more ▼]Bacteria with intrinsic resistance to antibiotics are a worrisome health problem. It is widely believed that intrinsic antibiotic resistance of bacterial pathogens is mainly the consequence of cellular impermeability and activity of efflux pumps. However, the analysis of transposon-tagged Pseudomonas aeruginosa mutants presented in this article shows that this phenotype emerges from the action of numerous proteins from all functional categories. Mutations in some genes make P. aeruginosa more susceptible to antibiotics and thereby represent new targets. Mutations in other genes make P. aeruginosa more resistant and therefore define novel mechanisms for mutation-driven acquisition of antibiotic resistance, opening a new research field based in the prediction of resistance before it emerges in clinical environments. Antibiotics are not just weapons against bacterial competitors, but also natural signalling molecules. Our results demonstrate that antibiotic resistance genes are not merely protective shields and offer a more comprehensive view of the role of antibiotic resistance genes in the clinic and in nature.

[more ▼]In the current context of globalization and industrial restructuring, we find it interesting to analyse a negotiation about a re-opening of a production site within a multinational enterprise. This negotiation between trade unions and management representatives was strategic for the revival of production activity and retention of 10,000 direct and indirect jobs. It allows us to illustrate the “structuration’ theory of Giddens (1990) insofar as we cannot ignore neither the importance of structures nor the actions of individuals; each element has an influence on the other and is influenced in return. In a first section, we analyse to what degree trade unions can be considered as ‘stakeholders’ by reviewing different theories of ‘Corporate social responsibility’ and of ‘Corporate Stakeholders’. Our analysis highlights the importance of trade unions as ‘corporate stakeholders’ in a situation of social negotiation on restructuring in a steel group. This analysis cannot however ignore the specific context of the situation: informal feature of the negotiation, unpredictability of the result, international competitive context, conflicting issues of the reorganisation. We present and analyse in the second section the context and the different stages of the negotiation on the reopening of activities at the Belgium steel plant, at the light of interviews with union representatives involved in this negotiation. More than other types of negotiation, those concerning corporate restructuring are stressing and risky because their impacts on the employment of thousands of persons and the economy of a whole region. We analyse the different stages of this negotiation with regard to ethical questioning. Our analysis is mainly based on the point of view expressed by one of the ‘parties’, making thus reference to ‘corporate social responsibility’ theory and more specifically to the ‘stakeholders theory’ through the union lens. We refer to the concept of ‘social transaction’ to analyse the play of the actors in this social negotiation. We will attempt to explain how Corporate Social Responsibility on one side, and relations between various 'stakeholders’ on the other side, give a specific perspective to a negotiation process. The third and final section is devoted to a critical analysis of key features of trust and uncertainty in relation to these negotiations. The concepts of trust and uncertainty notably will permit to explain the importance of taking into consideration the way of how things happen and understand how processes are elaborated. Modern societies are characterised by uncertainty. Faced with it, social actors can search for trust relationship to find some stability. Communication of information can positively contribute to the construction of a climate of trust in organisation. Negotiation spaces may be limited by important constraints but resources could be renewed or created by actors themselves. We will conclude by trying, doubtless in a utopian way, to situate the present case study in respect to a democratic process of social change. A search of compromise could respond to situations of uncertainty. Besides, the process of trust elaboration is a response to uncertain situations. Uncertainty is a fundamental resource of a negotiation and a source of power for those who can control and use it in their transactions.
