La souveraineté de l'Etat lui donne la puissance de régler toute question dans la sphère étatique et de corriger le jeu des forces du marché au profit d'autres intérêts. L'absence de souveraineté à l'échelle mondiale empêche le réglement équivalent des questions qui échappent au cadre étatique. La mondialisation d'une question entraîne une difficulté de réglementation et de correction des forces du marché au profit d'autres intérêts. La mondialisation et le déclin de la puissance de l'Etat sont liés. [less ▲]

The present study provides the first evidence that money impairs people’s ability to savor everyday positive emotions and experiences. In a sample of working adults, wealthier individuals reported lower savoring ability. Moreover, the negative impact of wealth on savoring undermined the positive effects of money on happiness. Supporting the causal influence of money on savoring, experimentally exposing participants to a reminder of wealth produced the same deleterious effect on savoring as did actual individual differences in wealth. Finally, moving beyond self-report, participants exposed to a reminder of wealth spent less time savoring a piece of chocolate and exhibited reduced enjoyment of it. The present research supplies evidence for the previously untested notion that having access to the best things in life may actually undercut the ability to reap enjoyment from life’s small pleasures.

The precise titration of anaesthetic agents is necessary to avoid the consequences of a too light depth of anaesthesia such as unexpected intraoperative awareness, as well as a too deep level of anaesthesia, which can be deleterious in terms of postoperative morbidity and mortality. The clinical evaluation of the depth of anaesthesia is poorly sensitive and specific. It does not permit to distinguish between pharmacodynamic components of anaesthesia. Several paraclinical depth of anaesthesia indices are currently available. Most of them are mainly designed to monitor the depth of the hypnotic component of anaesthesia. Their calculation is mostly based on the mathematical analysis of the electroencephalogram. They are efficient at reducing the incidence of unexpected intraoperative awareness, adjusting anaesthetic depth at an individual scale, predicting the time needed for recovery, allowing early extubation of patients, reducing their length of stay in the post anaesthesia care unit, and limiting the number of episodes of peroperative over and under dosage of anaesthetic agents. The knowledge of conditions that may impede the accurate interpretation of those indices is mandatory for an optimal use. Although undoubtedly beneficial for the patients, the use of those monitors is frequently responsible for supplementary' costs, particularly when the procedure is short. [less ▲]

Geothermal resources, especially groundwater resources, are increasingly used around the world. It is therefore necessary to improve the characterisation of thermal parameters of the aquifers. This is done mostly with thermal response tests. In this work, we monitored with electrical resistivity tomography a geothermal test on the campus of Ghent University (Belgium). We injected warm water (45°C) into a sandy aquifer where the groundwater has a temperature of 10°C at a rate of 100 liter/hour during three days. Laboratory measurements indicated that we could expect at most a change of 2%/°C of the water electrical conductivity. The time-lapse series of electrical images show clearly the thermal plume corresponding to the injected water with a maximum change of minus 20% after 72 hours of injection. A comparison with a geothermal model shows that the anomaly is well detected but also distorded due to the inversion regularization (smoothness constraint). ERT enabled to follow the evolution of the injected heated water with more spatial coverage that traditionnal techniques. ERT is thus an interesting tool to monitor the exploitation of geothermal resources. In the future, it will be necessary to improve the inversion process to use quantitavely such results in a calibration process. [less ▲]

Artificial olfaction system (the so-called electronic nose) is a very promising tool to monitor the malodour in the field. Usual measurement techniques of odour use human olfaction or conventional analytical techniques. The first category represents the real odour perception but is not applicable to measure continuously bad odours in the field. The second class of techniques gives the mixture composition but not the global information representative of the odour perception. The e-nose has the potentialities to combine "the odour perception" and the "monitoring in the field". However to be able to reach that goal, the signal processing has to be adapted to work in complex environment. The research group in Arlon has more than ten years experience in the measure of environmental malodours in the field. The paper presents the minimal requirements that the group considers as essential for artificial olfaction system to become successful for this application. [less ▲]

Artificial olfaction system (the so-called electronic nose) is a very promising tool to monitor the malodour in the field. Usual odour measurement techniques use human olfaction or analytical techniques.

Although desirable for a reliable hazard assessment, rate estimates of landslide motion rarely combine a good time resolution and a sufficiently long time of observation. Here, both angles are tackled for the Manaihan landslide (East Belgium), dramatically reactivated in September 1998. I monitored the landslide displacements by repeated Global Positioning System (GPS) surveys from 1999 to 2005. Two digital elevation models were also produced, one of the landslide topography in 1999 by GPS and a second by stereophotogrammetry from aerial photographs of 1953. Subtracting one model from the other, I mapped the height changes within the landslide over the 1953-1999 period. All measurements consistently showed that, beyond the sudden similar to 1.5 m slip of September 1998, the landslide moved at a mean rate of c. 20 cm yr(-1) since 1980. Most displacements occurred around the winter's end, when long-lasting precipitation combined with minimal evaporation and occasional intense daily rainfall. The motions are spatially determined by seepage from a broken sewage pipe inducing local high pore pressures. [less ▲]
