We show how to represent an interval of real numbers in an abstract numeration system built on a language that is not necessarily regular. As an application, we consider representations of real numbers using the Dyck language. We also show that our framework can be applied to the rational base numeration systems. [less ▲]

One of the defining features of Chinese new documentaries is the relationship which the filmmakers build with the subjects they are filming thanks to their bottom-up perspectives. In this paper, I will discuss Lü Xinyu’s argument that new documentary filmmakers have allowed “the power of reality to inter into their films” and that this reality “thereby exceeds their subjective will as filmmakers” (Lü 2010: 28). More specifically, by looking at how rural migrant workers are represented in these films, I will argue that new documentaries provide a very valuable vantage point in order to engage with the rich and at once highly contradictory dimension of rural migrant workers’ identity and agency made of aspirations, hopes, but also frustration, and hardship.

The nuclear and oncogenic BCL-3 protein activates or represses gene transcription when bound to NF-kB proteins p50 and p52, yet the molecules that specifically interact with BCL-3 and drive BCL-3-mediated effects on gene expression remain largely uncharacterized. Moreover, GSK3-mediated phosphorylation of BCL-3 triggers its degradation through the proteasome, but the proteins involved in this degradative pathway are poorly characterized. Biochemical purification of interacting partners of BCL-3 led to the identification of CtBP as a molecule required for the ability of BCL-3 to repress gene transcription. CtBP is also required for the oncogenic potential of BCL-3 and for its ability to inhibit UV-mediated cell apoptosis in keratinocytes. We also defined the E3 ligase TBLR1 as a protein involved in BCL-3 degradation through a GSK3-independent pathway. Thus, our data demonstrate that the LSD1/CtBP complex is required for the repressing abilities of an oncogenic IkB protein, and they establish a functional link between the E3 ligase TBLR1 and NF-kB.

This study focuses on the prosecution of genocide-denial in Belgium and on the current deadlock of this political question. A political science approach is used to shed light on this issue which makes often the headlines. The study is based on the analysis of parliamentary documents and on several interviews with the key actors of this issue. This approach enables an analytic understanding of this question. The research topic is all the more meaningful because it concerns dialectics between the present and the past and it puts into questions the place of history in politics. [less ▲]

Quelle est la place octroyée à la protection contre le bruit dans le système répressif wallon ? Voilà le type de question à laquelle est confronté tout Etat désireux de préserver son environnement sonore. Si une telle préoccupation n’est pas en réalité nouvelle, elle est devenue néanmoins une caractéristique essentielle du droit wallon, fortement imprégné d’un évident souci de protection. Pour preuve, la Loi du 18 juillet 1973 relative à la lutte contre le bruit ; le Code Wallon de l'Aménagement du Territoire, de l'Urbanisme, du Patrimoine et de l'Énergie ; le Code de l’environnement ; la Directive 2008/99/CE relative à la protection de l’environnement par le droit pénal, et principalement le Décret du 5 juin 2008 relatif à la recherche, la constatation, la poursuite et la répression des infractions et les mesures de réparation en matière d’environnement , et son arrêté d’exécution du 5 décembre 2008.

Notre communication présente les résultats d’une recherche consacrée à la problématique de la reprise d’entreprise familiale par les filles d’entrepreneur. L’analyse de onze études de cas nous a permis d’analyser le processus de succession tel que vécu et perçu par les filles d’entrepreneur qui reprennent l’entreprise familiale, en identifiant les acteurs clés de l’environnement interne et externe. Nous effectuons une lecture des trajectoires en termes de genre, en examinant les phénomènes de séparation et de hiérarchisation. Nous portons une attention particulière à la configuration familiale (composition de la fratrie mixte ou féminine) et au secteur d’activité (à prédominance masculine ou féminine). Nos résultats mettent en évidence des effets de genre importants, notamment en ce qui concerne le choix du cédant en matière de successeur, ce qui amène des conséquences en termes de positionnement et de motivations des filles d’entrepreneur (reprise par choix ou par nécessité). Par ailleurs, le positionnement des filles en tant que successeurs « par défaut » nous permet de souligner des phénomènes de hiérarchisation. Enfin, nos résultats montrent de quelle manière les filles d’entrepreneur, une fois identifiées comme successeurs, se font accepter et construisent leur crédibilité et leur légitimité vis-à-vis de la famille et des parties prenantes.

OBJECTIVE: The present study was designed to assess the reproducibility and the diagnostic sensitivity of the amplitude-dependent speed of sound (SoS) at the distal metaphysis of the proximal phalanges. METHOD: Fourteen presumably healthy volunteers were repeatedly measured every 6 weeks for approximately 6 months in order to assess the reproducibility of the SoS of the phalanges. We recruited 91 post-menopausal women, aged 55-75 years, who were divided in three groups according to their lumbar bone mineral density (BMD) and the existence of prevalent vertebral fractures. The objective was to evaluate the diagnostic sensitivity of SoS measurements. We used DBM Sonic 1200 equipment, and assessed the velocity at which US cross the phalanx in a lateral-medial direction. In post-menopausal women, BMD was measured by dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) at the level of the lumbar spine, the total zone of the non-dominant hip and the femoral neck zone of the non-dominant hip. RESULTS: The precision of the SoS measurements was 0.71+/-0.05% (mean+/-S.E.M) whereas the reproducibility was 0.95+/-0.06%. Subjects with low BMD or prevalent fractures had significantly lower values of SoS (P < 0.001) than the controls. ROC curve analysis applied to the study population confirmed that SoS was able to discriminate between the controls and osteoporotic subjects (area under the ROC curves were 0.82 (low bone mineral density) and 0.85 (prevalent fractures), respectively). Hip BMD was found to be the most significant variable when comparing the controls and the low density patients by stepwise discrimination and SoS significantly improved the discrimination between the groups when added to the hip BMD. The hip BMD was again the most discriminant variable when applying the same techniques to controls and patients with prevalent fractures, followed by SoS and lumbar BMD. A cut-off value of 1881 m/s is defined for SoS by logistic discrimination and likelihood ratio function. With this value, the sensitivity and the specificity for SoS used in the diagnosis of established osteoporosis were, 81.5% and 79.3%, respectively. Sensitivity and specificity were significantly improved when combining ultrasonometry and densitometry. CONCLUSION: Measurement of ultrasound velocity at the phalanges appears to be a precise and reproducible technique. SoS discriminates between normal post-menopausal women and patients with either low lumbar BMD or prevalent fractures to the same extent as BMD measurements. [less ▲]

In human motion analysis, bone motions are usually expressed relatively to anatomical reference frames. The anatomical reference frames are constructed thanks to the localization of bony landmarks during a static phase prior to the acquisitions. These landmarks are identified by means of palpation. Accurate comparison between subjects and studies implies good reproducibility and repeatability of the palpation process. However, all investigators don’t have a long experience in palpation. In this paper, the reproducibility and repeatability of palpation for junior investigators were measured. Results show worse reproducibility and repeatability than what is usually expected. These errors have particularly an influence on the definition of the reference frames of the arm. This study therefore emphasizes on the need of a specific training of operators working in a motion lab. [less ▲]

There has been a long debate about appropriate BP measurement techniques for evaluating the quality of BP control, especially in kidney transplantation (KT). Thus, one aim of the present study was to examine 3 methods of BP measurement and their reproducibility over a short period of 8 weeks. Conclusion: Home blood pressure monitoring (HBPM) and ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) should be applied more often also in KT, among others for reasons of better reproducibility over time than office blood pressure monitoring (OBPM).

The stability of cerebral glucose utilization was examined in nine right-handed, healthy men (age, 24.88 +/- 2.93 years) using positron emission tomography (PET) and the [18F]-fluorodeoxglucose (FDG) method. Each study was run twice at intervals of 1-12 weeks with the subject at rest. The average cerebral metabolic rate for glucose (CMRGlu) was 5.40 +/- 0.71 mg/100 g per min (coefficient of variance, 13.08). The average intraindividual variation of CMRGlu was 7.91% +/- 15.46% (P = 0.13). Metabolic indices (MI: regional/mean cortical CMRGlu) were used to determine the regional cerebral metabolic distribution. The interindividual (coefficient of variance, 7.13) and intraindividual variabilities (average variation, -0.12% +/- 8.76%) of MI were smaller than those of metabolic rates. No reproducible significant asymmetry was observed. The FDG method used with subjects at rest thus yields low intraindividual variability of both cerebral glucose consumption and regional metabolic distribution, even at an interval of several weeks. Cerebral glucose utilization measured under such conditions may act as a reliable reference for determination of the influences of physiological (activation), pharmacological or pathological processes on cerebral glucose metabolism.
