Si les rapports entre jeu vidéo et cinéma suscitent depuis longtemps l’intérêt des milieux académiques, les relations, échanges et points de passage entre le livre et le jeu vidéo constituent pour leur part un domaine de recherche toujours en friche. Pourtant, les interactions entre ces deux médias sont loin d’être des exceptions et les disciplines qui les étudient (les game studies et l’histoire du livre) sont connectées par une certaine affinité méthodologique : tous deux ont un fondement profondément interdisciplinaire ; tous deux rassemblent, autour d’un objet commun, des chercheurs issus d’horizons très différents. Cette parenté disciplinaire, ajoutée à la richesse des constants échanges entre livre et jeu vidéo, a encouragé la conception de cet ouvrage collectif consacré à la rencontre entre le médium vidéoludique et son voisin livresque. Poursuivant une première enquête qui avait abouti dans la publication d’un numéro de la revue Mémoires du livre / Studies in book culture (intitulé « Livre et jeu vidéo »), ce volume approfondit différentes questions laissées de côté. Il est ainsi divisé en quatre sections : la première porte sur les représentations (principalement du livre dans le jeu, mais aussi du jeu vidéo dans la littérature) ; la deuxième sur les transpositions, c’est-à-dire sur l’adaptation de propriétés formelles d’un médium par l’autre ; la troisième sur les adaptations, domaine dont l’étude bénéficie de jalons antérieurs déjà définis (travaux sur la novélisation et la narration transmédia multi-supports) ; enfin, dans la dernière partie consacrée à la création, Jordan Bolay, Éric Chartrand et Nicolas Decerf proposent une réflexion sur l’interaction des deux médias au sein de leur pratique créative.

Cet article vise à explorer la manière dont la sémiotique greimassienne a traité la question des valeurs dans le cadre de l’image, notamment photographique et artistique. Après une relecture critique de l’ouvrage de Jean-Marie Floch, Les formes de l’empreinte, et de la distinction entre valeurs dans l’image et valorisations des images, ce travail se consacre à l’exposition de nouvelles propositions de la sémiotique des pratiques de Jacques Fontanille en essayant de les lier à des réflexions sur les objets et les pratiques de la photographie artistique (l’utilisation des séries, de l’original, des différents tirages, etc.). Si l’attention est portée surtout sur la photo artistique, ce texte envisage également une comparaison avec les pratiques de l’original et de l’authenticité dans la photo de guerre, la photo de famille et la photo-image pieuse. L’objectif majeur de ce travail est d’étudier les diverses pratiques de valorisation des images photographiques afin de faire éclater la notion ontologique de trace photographique. [less ▲]

Dans ce chapitre, je me propose de réévaluer, au moins partiellement, le sens et la portée de la théorie de la « validité » (Gelten, Geltung) développée par Lotze dans sa grande Logique de 1874. Je suggérerai que le rapprochement traditionnellement invoqué entre Lotze et Bolzano est trompeur, puisqu’il a sans doute assez largement contribué à masquer la dimension eidétique et « matérielle » de la théorie lotzéenne de la validité (§1). L’une des idées centrales qui se cache derrière la notion de « validité », en effet, est que les contenus de représentation – et, exemplairement, les contenus de représentations sensorielles (les concepts de couleurs, de sons, etc.) – forment une sphère intrinsèquement structurée par des relations d’un certain genre. Contrairement aux relations logiques traditionnelles (comme la contradiction) et aux relations logico-syntaxiques, qui structurent aussi le « monde du représensable » d’un autre point de vue (§2), les relations dont il est question ici sont non formalisables, car elles sont fondées dans l’essence même des phénomènes, pris « en soi », c’est-à-dire indépendamment de leur instanciation dans un objet du monde spatio-temporel et de leur appréhension par un sujet psycho-physique (§3).

Dans cet contribution, nous centrons notre réflexion sur la notion de justice environnementale, depuis son émergence en tant que champ d’investigation scientifique et d’activisme environnemental et social aux États-Unis dans les années 1980. Son intégration progressive au sein de politiques publiques environnementales ainsi que les résultats de cette mise à l’agenda public seront ensuite esquissés pour en montrer les évolutions et les limites. Ensuite, nous analysons son émergence dans le contexte européen pour montrer la plus-value que la justice environnementale peut apporter à la compréhension des rapports entre environnement et justice sociale. Les enjeux pour le contexte européen, en termes de recherche mais aussi de politiques publiques, sont abordés afin de mettre en lumière les apports potentiels de ce courant de recherche foisonnant aux États-Unis pour la réflexion sur le cumul d’inégalités socio-économiques et environnementales en Europe.

The aim of this paper is to suggest a taxonomy that allows for a systematic description of the functions that can be fulfilled by hieroglyphic signs. Taking as a point of departure the insights of several studies that have been published on the topic since Champollion, we suggest that three key-features – namely, semography, phonemography and autonomy – are needed in order to provide a description of the glottic functions of the ancient Egyptian graphemes. Combining these paradigmatic and syntagmatic features, six core functions can be identified for the hieroglyphic signs: they may behave as pictograms, logograms, phonograms, classifiers, radicograms or interpretants. In a second step, we provide a definition for each function and discuss examples that illustrate the fuzziness between these core semiotic categories. [less ▲]

The tomb of the second High Priest of Amun under the reign of Thutmose IV, Amenhotep Sise (TT 75), is one of the few Theban tombs that can be nominally ascribed to its artistic author, the "painter of Amun Userhat", who signed his work through a double self-portrait in assistenza. The study of the painted decoration of the tomb leads to the conclusion that this painter was deeply involved in the royal projects of his time in Karnak and even might have been one of the designers of the decorative programme of the Festival Courtyard of Thutmose IV, and, as such, was hired by his chief in the administration of the estate of Amun in Thebes, the Second High Priest of Amun, Amenhotep Sise, to work in his own private funerary monument.

Law is changing. Although both specialists and society as a whole often act as if it is an un-changing monolith, any rational commentator must note that it has evolved over time. Changes do occur, in doctrine, in procedure, in jurisprudential understanding, and in legal education. The factors which drive innovation in law include social transformation, cultural change, and, importantly, the technological possibilities of the times for creating, storing and applying legal information. New technologies can also require new doctrinal developments. Such changes often do not come easily for the legal system. The myth of stability is maintained in part because the acceptance by the public rests on this assumption. It remains a myth, nonetheless. The impact of innovation on law is clearly two-fold: on the one side, innovation invests the way law is created, managed, and applied. On the other side, the emersion of new technologies calls for a reshaping of existing legal norms in specific fields. The book is divided into two parts. The first one offers a general overview on the systemic technologically-driven change law is going to face in the next few years. In the second part, issues like robotics, genetics, ICTs, Internet, protection of intellectual property rights, synthetic biology are presented as a laboratory bench of scientific and technological innovation which calls for legal innovation. This book, together with the course Innovating Legal Studies and Practice, established at the University of Pavia, is one of the principal outcomes of a two-year project funded by Cariplo Foundation (Fondazione Cariplo, Milan).

Dal 1983 al 1988 l'Irpinia è stata teatro di una delle storie più tristi dello sviluppo industriale della regione Campania, ovvero la vicenda dell'apertura e della chiusura dello stabilimento Isochimica. Una fabbrica progettata per la scoibentazione dei pannelli di amianto dalle carrozze dei treni su commissione delle Ferrovie dello Stato (FS). Se da un lato la storia produttiva della fabbrica è stata molto breve, dall'altro lato l'impatto disastroso che essa ha avuto sul territorio e sulla vita di centinaia di operai è, oggi più che mai, attuale. Infatti, dopo circa 25 anni dalla chiusura della fabbrica, installata in un borgo popolare alla periferia di Avellino (Borgo Ferrovia), gli operai, per la maggior parte ammalati di patologie asbesto-correlate, sono ancora in lotta per veder riconosciuti i loro diritti dalle istituzioni competenti. Inoltre, il sito in cui era collocata l'ex fabbrica non è stato ancora bonificato e centinaia di cubi di amianto sono ancora depositati all'aria aperta in prossimità di scuole, campi di calcio e abitazioni. In questo contesto, l'installazione della fabbrica, la sua attività, la sua chiusura e il successivo occultamento delle responsabilità da parte delle autorità, hanno svelato uno scenario socio-economico e politico che ha anticipato alcune dinamiche di riproduzione del capitale apportate dalla globalizzazione economica. Infatti, l'installazione illegale della fabbrica avvenuta senza i permessi delle autorità, l'organizzazione della produzione che oscillava tra il formale, informale e illegale, le relazioni di lavoro precarie e lo sversamento abusivo di tonnellate di amianto nel territorio circostante, hanno fatto dell'Irpinia, all'inizio degli anni '80, uno dei laboratori delle dinamiche del capitalismo deregolamentato di matrice neoliberista (Harvey 2005; Sennet 2006; Portes, Sassen-Koob 1987). Allo stesso tempo, la vicenda Isochimica si inscrive profondamente nelle storiche relazioni economico-politiche tra il Nord e il Sud dell'Italia in cui le forme embrionali di economia neoliberista si sono riprodotte all'interno di relazioni di potere di natura coloniale (Saitta 2013; Mezzadra 2005; Stoler, Cooper 1997). Dunque, partendo dall'analisi di questo scenario, l'articolo punta a studiare la lotta dei lavoratori dell'ex Isochimica, dalla prima occupazione della fabbrica avvenuta nel 1985 al movimento degli ex-operai dei giorni nostri. L'obiettivo è quello di analizzare nello specifico la lotta operaia degli anni '80 per il diritto a un lavoro sicuro e duraturo, comparandola alle recenti rivendicazioni per per il diritto alla vita. Questo studio prende in considerazione 20 biografie di ex operai dell'Isochimica, focalizzando l'attenzione soltanto su alcune e analizzandole all'interno del quadro politico-economico e istituzionale che, dagli anni '80 fino a oggi, è riuscito è impedire agli operai il riconoscimento dei loro diritti. L'ipotesi dell'articolo è che la lotta degli operai dell'ex-Isochimica, all'interno del sistema di potere locale, sia da inscrivere nei mutamenti del sistema di produzione e di rappresentazione apportato dalle politiche neoliberali in cui, nel caso paradigmatico del Sud Italia, la mistura tra «passato» coloniale e «modernità» neoliberale ha generato nuove forme di subordinazione (Petrillo 2011; Saitta 2013). In questo contesto, le rivendicazioni operaie dei lavoratori dell'Isochimica negli anni '80 e quelle attuali per il diritto alla vita (riconoscimento delle patologie, assegnazione di una rendita sociale, invalidità civile, cure dignitose) sono state estromesse dal terreno del conflitto tra capitale e lavoro in un'epoca in cui la fabbrica non è più il terreno in cui si giocano le lotte per una società più giusta (Fassin, Memmi 2004; Petrillo 2009).

Urban development is a complex process influenced by a number of driving forces, including spatial planning, topography and urban economics. Identifying these drivers is crucial for the regulation of urban development and the calibration of predictive models. Existing land-use models generally consider urban development as a binary process, through the identification of built versus non-built areas. This study considers urban development as a continuum, characterized by different level of densities, which can be related to different driving forces. A multinomial logistic regression model was employed to investigate the effects of drivers on different urban densities during the past decade in Wallonia, Belgium. Sixteen drivers were selected from sets of driving forces including accessibility, geophysical features, policies and socioeconomic factors. It appears that urban development in Wallonia is remarkably influenced by land-use policies and accessibility. Most importantly, our results highlight that the impact of different drivers varies along with urban density. [less ▲]

The controlled radical copolymerization of ethylene (E) and vinyl acetate (VAc) is further investigated by organometallic- mediated radical polymerization (OMRP) using Co(acac)2 as controlling agent at ethylene pressure up to 100 bar. The effect of ethylene pressure on kinetics, level of control and copolymer composition, is discussed. Ethylene-Vinyl Acetate copolymers (EVAs) with low dispersities and ethylene content reaching 57 mol% are notably reported. This work also successfully addresses the precision design of EVA-containing block copolymers, i.e. PVAc-block-EVA. In this case, the order of the synthesis of the blocks is a key parameter. The “PVAc-first” strategy is by far more practical and efficient. [less ▲]

Les électeurs en Belgique se sentent-ils Belges, Flamands ou Wallons ? C’est la question principale posée dans le neuvième chapitre écrit par Kris Deschouwer, Lieven de Winter, Min Reuchamps, Dave Sinardet et Jérémy Dodeigne. Dans leur conclusion, ils constatent que les identités flamandes et wallonnes sont moins affirmées que l’identité belge, même dans le cas d’une forte polarisation politique autour de la réforme de l’État. En mai 2014, l’enjeu de la réforme de l’État a été – comme par le passé – peu déterminant dans le comportement de vote, même si cela varie d’un électorat de parti à un autre. En Wallonie, cela n’a pas été aussi déterminant, alors qu’en Flandre trois groupes d’électeurs peuvent être discernés. Dans le premier groupe, les partisans d’une plus grande réforme de l’État et d’une plus grande autonomie se retrouvent dans l’électorat de la N-VA et du Vlaams Belang. Dans un groupe plus modéré se retrouvent les électeurs du CD&V, alors que le troisième groupe (le moins favorable à plus de réformes et plus d’autonomie) est constitué des électeurs de l’Open VLD, du sp.a, de Groen et du PvdA.

Large surveys in Western countries give pictures of adolescent well-being related to delinquency and group affiliation. The belonging to a particular country, city or neighbourhood with their social structure influences the probability to have delinquent activities in group increasing or decreasing the risk of marginalisation, the sensibility to deviant values and the well-being related to peers’ acceptance. A general process would exist by which, firstly adolescents oppose themselves to the parents’ authority and seek for acceptance among their peers. This leads to a spiral when the youth tries to resolve his cognitive dissonance between the immoral acts he is invited to commit with his friends and his personal value system learned in his family, school and other institutions. In adolescence, the influence of peers can be positive or negative; it can be “protective peer-contagion” with positive response to normative talk or “deviant peer-contagion” with positive response to deviant talk or behaviour. At the micro level, well-adjusted peers are able to resist the influence of deviant peers. The participation to non-homogenous mixed groups seems to facilitate more normative talks. This leads to the hypothesis that the progressive extension to differentiated groups when adolescence is going through will strengthen their ties with conventional norms and contribute to their well-being.

The article proposes a renewed interpretation of the relation of the antique stadium of Olympia with its built environment. It is argued that the stadium, far from being isolated from the city as commonly considered, was connected to the Altis through a series of visual relations, adopting principles of dialogical architecture: composition, significant location, functional routes, perceptions, role of architectonic elements and spatial characteristics. This argument is illustrated through computer-generated perspectives of the stadium. [less ▲]

According to current standards, the use of unreinforced masonry is only recommended in regions of low to moderate seismicity as a resisting system to carry earthquake-induced horizontal forces. This requirement is however felt as rather conservative and leading to uneconomical constructive solutions, in particular for low seismic regions. Moreover, the seismic analysis of masonry structures has to be performed along two main perpendicular directions, usually neglecting the contribution of wall elements perpendicular to the seismic action. Horizontal elements (spandrel, etc.) are also commonly disregarded. In such a context, the present contribution provides an overview of experimental results obtained from shake table tests on unreinforced masonry frames carried out in the EQUALS Laboratory of Bristol University in order to assess, and possibly enhance, current design rules. The study is focused on the contribution of walls perpendicular to the seismic action and on the influence of the frame effect induced by the coupling of the walls through horizontal reinforced concrete elements, such as lintels and floor slabs. Another point of interest of the study is the influence of the gravity loading situation, comparing a floor slab supported by the shear walls as well as by the perpendicular elements, with a floor slab supported by the perpendicular walls only. Tests are performed on walls constructed with units and construction methods typical of the North-Western European region. [less ▲]

Les récits anticipant des sociétés futures sous oppression ou sur le déclin sont régulièrement confondus sous les appellations non synonymiques de "dystopie", "anti-utopie" et "contre-utopie". Ces appariements dénotent une indécision significative à propos de tout un pan de la tradition littéraire de l’utopie. Qu’on le considère comme le double inversé ou la face cachée de l’utopie, le récit d’anticipation négatif présente au moins un invariant structurel : il développe l’histoire fictive d’une communauté dont l’organisation et les bases sociales sont menacées, fragilisées, détruites. Le présent parcours dans une fraction de la littérature française publiée entre 1840 et 1930 propose une mise au point terminologique et quelques balises formelles pour la (re)lecture du récit d’anticipation sociale négatif, dont il s’agit de souligner la cohérence et les spécificités.

Nous faisons le choix d’analyser le traitement médiatique du Plan Déchets, en le situant dans un processus plus large, c’est- à-dire incluant une pluralité d’acteurs intéressés, de construction du problème des déchets radioactifs en Belgique.

Il s’agit de comprendre les problèmes publics, et plus généralement la construction de po- litiques publiques destinées à les résoudre, à partir des relations liant différents types d’acteurs, ou, comme l’assemblage « des pratiques qui les produisent et les transforment sans cesse ». Nous nous intéresserons ici précisément aux actions et interactions liant plusieurs groupes d’acteurs participant à ce processus dynamique de construction du problème public : l’organisme d’intérêt public – l’ONDRAF –, les médias, le public, certaines associations environnementales ainsi que les représentants politiques à tous niveaux de pouvoir.

Over the last decade, China has deeply affected the economic map of Latin America. All the Latin American countries quickly increased their exchanges with China and get engaged in new plans for exchanges, cooperation and partnerships. These evolutions have highlighted the American lack of leadership and the European loss of competitiveness. Numbers of researches tend to analyse the Sino-Latin American relationship with the eyes of reciprocity. This contribution rather makes the choice of analysing China’s strategy for growth on the world stage, focusing on its ties with Latin America and Brazil especially: cooperation or hegemony? According to this approach, the increase of China’s influence doesn’t only depend on its resources, nor on its capacity to mobilize them opportunely. It also depends on its external recognition. Thus, the power of China can be measured through its capacity to “assert itself as a reference” for its emerging peers, or even for Western powers. By integrating all dimensions of the Chinese power through its foreign policy and its incantatory diplomacy (anti-hegemonism, world multipolarization, South-South cooperation, etc.) , this chapter will try to identify real Chinese influence by measuring the distance between perception and reality. Against the backdrop of the following hypothesis: does the Chinese penetration in Latin America have a notable impact on the relations of Europe and the United States with this part of the world?

Climate effects on agriculture are of increasing concern in both the scientific and policy communities because of the growing population and the greater uncertainty in the weather during growing seasons. Changes in production are directly linked to variations in temperature and precipitation during the growing season and often to the offseason changes in weather because of soil water storage to replenish the soil profile. This is not an isolated problem but one of worldwide interest because each country has concerns about their food security. The Agricultural Model Intercomparison and Improvement Project (AgMIP) was developed to evaluate agricultural models and intercompare their ability to predict climate impacts. In sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia, South America and East Asia, AgMIP regional research teams (RRTs) are conducting integrated assessments to improve understanding of agricultural impacts of climate change (including biophysical and economic impacts) at national and regional scales. Other AgMIP initiatives include global gridded modeling, data and information technology (IT) tool development, simulation of crop pests and diseases, site-based crop-climate sensitivity studies, and aggregation and scaling.

Since a decade, the accelerometry allows new measurements in biomechanics of sport. Small, light and transportable, these sensors allow to liberate from heavy force plates and offers new perspectives in the understanding of the performance in sport. The goal of this chapter is to present the concept of the accelerometry and to understand practical possibilities and limits in the assessment of muscular performance. The reliability of the accelerometers are highly depending on the level of technology and in the respect of manufacturer recommendations. These devices are used during exercises such as bench press or squat, allowing to analyze force-velocity-power profile, to estimate the 1-RM, to achieve biomechanical analysis or to track free weight exercises during work out. All of these applications are very precious for scientists and for coaches during training program or athletes follow-up. [less ▲]

Automated mathematical building performance optimisation (BPO) paired with building performance simulation (BPS) is a promising solution to use as a means to evaluating many different design options and obtain the optimal or near optimal for a given objective or combination of objectives (e.g., lowest life-cycle cost, lowest capital cost, highest thermal comfort) while achieving fixed objectives (e.g., net zero-energy) (Wetter 2001; Charron and Athienitis 2006; Christensen and Anderson 2006; Brown, Glicksman et al. 2010; Bucking, Athienitis et al. 2010 ). Traditionally, buildings are designed based on heuristic rules separating the design process into early and late design stages with two different discipline specialisations mainly architecture and engineering. By employing optimisation techniques building designers can cross those barriers between disciplines and address the design process as one continuous stage. Optimisation can allow that by addressing all building design parameters, as shown in Figure 4.1, in a holistic approach allowing the optimisation of geometry, envelope, comfort, systems and renewable. The previously often ill defined design problem would under this perspective be defined as a problem with explicit multi-objective criteria. This will push fully integrated net zero-energy building (Net-ZEB) designs where the builder designers can act to influence the direction of the optimisation. Despite optimisation’s potential in Net-ZEB buildings, it remains largely a research tool and has yet to emerge in common industry practice. As this section reports, major obstacles to BPO in industry include lack of appropriate tools, lack of resources (time, expertise), and the requirement that the problem be very well defined (e.g., constraints, objective function, finite list of design options). The objective of this section is to document the current state-of-the-art and future research in terms of Net-ZEB optimisation tools in practice and its use for design and operation of buildings for energy, comfort and cost optimisation.

The roles of mast cells in health and disease remain incompletely understood. While the evidence that mast cells are critical effector cells in IgE-dependent anaphylaxis and other acute IgE-mediated allergic reactions seems unassailable, studies employing various mice deficient in mast cells or mast cell-associated proteases have yielded divergent conclusions about the roles of mast cells or their proteases in certain other immunological responses. Such “controversial” results call into question the relative utility of various older versus newer approaches to ascertain the roles of mast cells and mast cell proteases in vivo. This review discusses how both older and more recent mouse models have been used to investigate the functions of mast cells and their proteases in health and disease. We particularly focus on settings in which divergent conclusions about the importance of mast cells and their proteases have been supported by studies that employed different models of mast cell or mast cell protease deficiency. We think that two major conclusions can be drawn from such findings: (1) no matter which models of mast cell or mast cell protease deficiency one employs, the conclusions drawn from the experiments always should take into account the potential limitations of the models (particularly abnormalities affecting cell types other than mast cells) and (2) even when analyzing a biological response using a single model of mast cell or mast cell protease deficiency, details of experimental design are critical in efforts to define those conditions under which important contributions of mast cells or their proteases can be identified.

In this paper we investigate the characteristics of economic control chart designs for both Shewhart (¯X ) and CUSUM control charts. Authors in the past have made some suggestions regarding the design of these charts, where design is defined as finding the values of sample size, intersample interval and control limit (Shewhart chart) or control parameters (k and h) for the CUSUM chart. Here, we run a large number of experiments consisting of many configurations of the parameters and describe and model the results in terms of the actual economic designs. [less ▲]

Delinquent and criminal behaviors are often the result of adverse conditions in the family and the neighborhood, or of affiliations with delinquent peers. However, case studies as well as large surveys have shown that even in adverse conditions, many children and adolescents do not engage in delinquency; they are “resilient.” In the explanation of criminal and antisocial behaviors, resilient individuals are those who have succeeded in overcoming at-risk circumstances. Resilience is also regarded as the process through which a person adjusts to at-risk situations in a successful manner. Promotive and protective factors stem from the community, family, school, peers, and individuals, and the configurations of these factors are important. In addition, protective factors are not universal. Risk factors and consequently, protective and resilience processes, may be different for children, adolescents, and adults, as well as for males and females. Finally, it is useful to distinguish primary resilience (i.e., as a preventive force in the onset of delinquency) from secondary resilience, which refers to a return to a crime-free life after a period of serious offending activity.

The process of regionalisation in Western Europe has renewed the interest in political careers, not only for newly regionalised unitary states but also for established federations (Stolz 2003). Recently, Docherty (2011: 186) rightly stated that “there has been little analytical work on the Canadian political career ” . And, arguably, even less on political careers in Quebec. Though, since the end of the 1990s, Walloon political careers have received greater attention (Fiers 2001a, 2001b; Pilet, Fiers and Steyvers 2007; Vanlangenakker, Maddens and Put 2010). Based on an original dataset, this chapter proposes a comprehensive analyses of federal and regional careers since the 1990s in Quebec and in Wallonia. More specifically, it presents and explains the circulation of members of parliament (MPs) in the two federations, with a specific focus on career maintenance at a single level of government (professional political careers) and career advancement (level-hopping movements between political arenas).

It seems uncontroversial that perceptual experiences provide us with some “normative support” for beliefs or judgments about our surroundings. Provided that the normative force of perceptual justification is something that manifests itself in consciousness or something we commonly experience, what are its phenomenal features? To put it differently: What is it to experience the normative force of perceptual justification? In the first section I will briefly comment on the demand of a unified theory of perceptual experiences, viz. a theory which is capable of integrating relevant epistemological and phenomenological aspects of perceptual experiences. In section two I will argue for a way of connecting the epistemological problem and the phenomenological problem by appealing to a compare-and-contrast strategy. Eventually, in section three, I will try to draw some lessons for our understanding of the normative force of perceptual justification. [less ▲]

Political parties are key political actors in both Quebec and Wallonia. As their foremost ambition is to govern their region, these parties clearly contribute to shaping its identity and image. This chapter aims at exploring how political parties in Quebec and in Wallonia speak about their region by focusing on an analysis of their electoral manifestos for the period 1994–2014. Using a quantitative and qualitative approach combining insights from lexicometry, cognitive linguistics and political science, the aims of this contribution are (i) to unravel how the parties perceive their region and its future development, (ii) to identify relevant evolutions in their perception of their respective region, and (iii) to assess to what extent parallels can be drawn between the two regions.

Dès les premiers instants de leur histoire, les mathématiques se sont développées en étroite relation avec les symboles qu’elles utilisent. Au départ d’une analyse de l’histoire des nombres naturels, cet article propose une réflexion sur la dialectique conceptualisation/symbolisation propre à la pensée mathématique. Il témoigne tout d’abord des nombreuses difficultés des élèves en matière de symbolisation tant en arithmétique qu’en algèbre. Il vise ensuite à mettre en lumière, dans la foulée des approches socioculturelles, le rôle et l’importance des activités de symbolisation dans l’apprentissage des concepts mathématiques. Il vient enfin concrétiser ces perspectives par des pratiques de classe illustrant les propos théoriques. Deux activités sont développées dans cet objectif, l’une visant le développement des premières opérations arithmétiques, l’autre portant sur le processus de généralisation en algèbre. [less ▲]

The paper investigates the concept of directional control of helicopters without tail rotor by means of the Coanda effect. Slot-blowing around a cylinder in a steady flow is modeled computationally, using the unsteady k-ω shear stress transport (SST) solver in NUMECA, as well as experimentally in the wind tunnel of the Université de Liège. While the concept, in general, is promising, it is shown that there are some potential problems, including pitch yaw coupling and some unsteady flow conditions. These problems exist under various circumstances and are due, at least, in part, to the complicated flow-field that governs this problem, even in two dimensions. [less ▲]

Agricultural development models are the focus of intense debate in the Cambodian policy-making arenas. A model inspired by the ‘Green Revolution’, which promotes industrialization of rice cropping systems and is mainly dependent on external inputs, is usually contrasted with multi-purpose farming (MPF) in which rice cropping is integrated with other production to maximize their interactions and complementarities. The purpose of this research is to present some economic arguments based on the experience in promoting MPF of CEDAC (Centre d’Etude et de Dévelopement Agricole Cambodgien, also known as the Cambodian Center for Study and Development in Agriculture). We develop a comparative analysis between conventional rice cropping systems and MPF to analyze the production economics and the overall patterns of household labor diversification. Focusing primarily on rainy-season rice production, we attribute significant advantage to MPF against non-MPF practices. These differences are perceptible in higher rice yield, lower cash-paid costs, and higher value-added per hectare. However, these differences become less significant when multi-purpose farming is only partially implemented, i.e. if some elements of the system are missing. MPF provides employment opportunities that represent a reliable alternative to job migration. Under MPF, family labor is used more on-farm than is the case with non- MPF farms and is more homogenously distributed throughout the year. However, we identify barriers that curb the scaling-up of this innovation, which include limited access to information, anticipated lack of labor, lack of capacity or technical skills, lack of up-front capital to make the initial investment in land conversion to MPF, and land plot sizes that are too small to be converted to this model. We also discuss the opportunities to create markets for products of differentiated quality produced under multi-purpose farming. [less ▲]

This chapter will analyze the place of the threat alleged of Cultural Marxism in the discourse of the radical and extreme right, in the United States as well as in continental Europe and the United Kingdom. The underlying aim of this chapter is to examine the determinant role that this ‘threat’ plays in the Anglo Saxon extreme right, in particular at the intellectual, ideological and doctrinal levels, in comparison to other countries. Certainly if the Netherlands, France or other countries have parties or political groups which borrow the rhetoric of ‘fighting’ against Cultural Marxism, or its more nebulous variant, ‘political correctness’, it certainly finds its origins in the United States, and more broadly the Anglo-Saxon world. To achieve this, the chapter will begin by unpicking the meanings behind the notion of Cultural Marxism, from its origins to its use in Anders Breivik’s manifesto released shortly before the Oslo and UtØya massacres. It will show that the term emerged from the literature of American ultraconservatives following the fall of the Berlin Wall as a consequence of the disappearance of the ‘red menace’ of Communism. Secondly, it will focus on two important moments in the development of the term. It will describe the phrase’s usage from the beginning of the 2000s within the discourse of Pat Buchanan, a political commentator and multiple U.S. presidential candidate. Then it will illustrate the re-emergence of the term some 10 years later, in the manifesto of Anders Breivik and in the subsequent justification of his acts throughout his trial. In both cases, we will see that Buchanan and Breivik emphasize the same basic theme, Cultural Marxism, in their denouncement of what they see as two different threats. Finally, from these explorations of the usage of the term, the discussion will examine other current uses of the notion of ‘Cultural Marxism’ in the British and American radical right. To conclude, it will show how the ‘Cultural Marxism’ threats are used by a variety of activists to argue for the defence of their political standpoints, setting this in a language of preserving freedom and democracy, but ultimately only within a framework designed to defend Judeo-Christian values.

L’alcool remonte le moral. Une petite cuite n’a jamais tué personne. Boire un café atténue l’effet de l’alcool. Le binge drinking est un fléau nouveau… De nombreuses idées reçues, certaines fondées, d’autres pas, sont véhiculées à propos de l’alcool et de ses conséquences. L’alcool soulève aussi de multiples questions : L’alcool est-il une drogue ? L’alcool est-il aphrodisiaque ? L’alcoolisme est-il héréditaire ? Combien l’alcool coûte/rapporte-t-il à la société ? Peut-on guérir de l’alcoolisme ?… Ce livre a pour but de démont(r)er certaines idées reçues sur l’alcool et d’apporter des réponses aux questions que chacun se pose. Les auteurs ne se bornent pas à répondre par vrai ou faux, ils fournissent les explications, appuyées sur l’état des connaissances scientifiques actuelles, qui permettent d’infirmer ou de confirmer ces idées reçues ou de répondre à ces questions. Ils nuancent le propos lorsque la réponse n’est pas de l’ordre du tout ou rien. Il est indéniable que l’excès d’alcool est nuisible à la santé. Il existe cependant une littérature scientifique démontrant des effets positifs sur la santé de la consommation en quantités modérées de certaines boissons alcoolisées. Ce mélange d’effets positifs et négatifs explique que le public a développé une relation d’amour-haine avec l’alcool. Ainsi, les abstinents complets sont parfois qualifiés de rabat-joie. Les alcooliques chroniques (5 à 10 % des occidentaux, selon les études épidémiologiques !) sont, quant à eux, souvent trop vite jugés. Ce qui est certain c’est que l’alcoolo-dépendance est source de beaucoup de souffrances pour la personne et son entourage. Ces 41 réponses à des questions sur l’alcool visent à donner des balises au lecteur, littérature scientifique à l’appui. [less ▲]

In this chapter, we review the behavioural critique of EU consumer legislation and focus is on how behavioural insights are being incorporated or could realistically be incorporated in existing or new rules. Behavioural scholars sometimes present EU consumer law as archaic and counter-productive and this creates a diffuse view that a behavioural turn would constitute a revolution for EU consumer law. We do not subscribe to this view. We begin by putting the current legitimacy crisis of EU consumer law in perspective. Specifically, we explain why EU law evolved to be an apparent anti-model of behavioural regulation and discuss whether the internal market constraints that still exist prevent a behavioural turn. We conclude that they do not. We illustrate this claim in relation to disclosure mandates. The central feature of disclosure mandates in EU consumer law has been severely criticised in the light of behavioural findings. We agree that they are over-used but find that disclosure mandates, as a technique, can still serve a useful purpose and suggest how their use can be streamlined. We also point out that recent developments tend to make disclosures smarter and point to directions to pursue this evolution. Finally, we turn to the core message of behavioural insights to policy makers: ‘make it simple’ and analyse how it has been received in EU consumer law beyond the specific issue of disclosure. We find evidence of an intention to simplify which predates the current commitment of the Commission to make simplification a priority, but highlight that efforts to simplify have led to half-baked solutions that are not simple enough. We conclude that EU consumer law does not need a revolution but a continued reform and that it contains the seeds of a more behavioural approach. [less ▲]
