The influence of educational variables on cognitive development, and particularly on the development of executive functions, remains poorly understood. In this study, we examined the parental socio-educational influence on both executive functioning and social/emotional behaviours in preschoolers. We administered to 77 children (2 age groups: 4 and 5-year-old) divided into two educational levels (HL vs. LL, i.e. High Level vs. Low Level of parental socio-educational status) several tasks measuring different aspects of the executive functioning (cognitive flexibility, inhibition, logico-deductive reasoning, and working memory). Questionnaires were also completed by the teaching staff in order to assess the children’s social (e.g., loneliness), emotional (e.g., anxiety), and adaptative (e.g., tolerance) behaviours at school. Results reveal that children from high socio-educational status performed significantly better on some specific verbal (fluency, verbal reasoning) and non-verbal executive tasks (deductive reasoning, inhibition) than children from lower socio-educational status (ps<.05). On the other hand, no significant socio-educational effect was found for working memory and cognitive flexibility. Regarding their social, emotional, and adaptative behaviours, LL children did not significantly differ from HL children, except for the anxiety scale, in which LL children were described as less confident than their HL peers. So, our results confirm that educational variables can significantly influence the development of specific executive functions, and that this can already be observed in preschool children. On the contrary, regarding the socio-adaptative behaviours, our results indicate that the parental socio-educational status does not seem to have a significant influence on the preschoolers’ behaviour at school.

The objective of this paper is to present the methodological developments in the DIDAM (Disaggregated demand and assignment models for combined passengers and freight transport) research project, which aims at advancing fundamental research in transportation modelling and analysis, using two complementary methodologies. The first is to develop a joint methodological approach for both freight and passenger transport, and the second is to base this common approach on the use of models that are as disaggregate and realistic as possible. Furthermore, the methods will be designed to cope with the important question of competition for infrastructure. The project is mainly organized around two themes. Each of them covers both freight and passengers aspects, in a manner which promotes collaborative work between the partners of the project. The first theme is concerned with disaggregate demand modelling issues, the second deals with innovative aspects of (joint) traffic assignment. Working at a fully disaggregate level is however not always easy. If such models are already available for passenger demand and traffic, disaggregate tools are still largely missing for freight transport. This is not only true at the operational level, but, more crucially, at the conceptual level. This is why our research program adopts, in this domain, a progressive approach that introduces disaggregation gradually into existing methods and models. This entails research in a full spectrum of issues, ranging from concepts definition (who are the actors, how can they be characterized ...) to validation exercises using available data sources [less ▲]

Recent studies suggested that fear-related stimuli (such as spiders or snakes) are prioritized during visual selection. However, it remains unclear whether such stimuli capture attention in a bottom - up fashion when they are irrelevant for the search task. To investigate this issue we used the additional singleton paradigm (Theeuwes, 1992 Perception & Psychophysics 51(6) 599 - 606), in which participants had to search for a shape singleton (a circle among diamonds) while either a fear-related stimulus (a spider) or a fear-unrelated stimulus (a butterfly) was also present in the display. To determine whether the capture was modulated by the degree of actual fear evoked by the stimuli we compared performance of participants that scored high or low on the Fear of Spiders Questionnaire (Szymanski and O'Donohue, 1995 Journal of Behavior Therapy and Experimental Psychiatry 26 31 - 34). Results indicate that both task-irrelevant spiders and butterflies capture attention. More importantly, however, for high-fear participants the interference caused by spiders was larger than that caused by butterflies, signifying the role of fear as a factor in the capture of attention by fear-related objects.

There is worldwide increasing interest in producing ethanol from grains. Currently, maize is the main grain used in fuel ethanol production (particularly in the USA). However, in Western Europe and Canada, wheat is the main grain for ethanol plants. Barley, rye, sorghum or combinations of grains are also used. The process of ethanol production from grains generates by-products (distillers’ grains, solubles and/or gluten feed) with potential in livestock feed. Consequently, a better knowledge of chemical composition of these by-products is essential. The aim of the present study was to chemically characterise 14 batches of by-products (mainly from wheat, but also from barley and maize) purchased from some plants in Western Europe. Starch was almost completely removed by ethanol production process. Consequently, crude protein and fibre were concentrated in by-products with regard to grain value. Ratios of by-products to grain (wheat is reference) varied between 1.6 and 3.2 (protein), 1.6 and 2.7 (NDF) and 2.3 and 5.1(ADF). Furthermore, heat treatment used during the production process of dried distillers’ grains could cause destruction of important amounts of some amino acids, especially lysine (Maillard reactions). Ratios of lysine to crude protein varied among batches of byproducts and were particularly poor and unstable for distillers’ grains. In conclusion, chemical composition of European by-products of ethanol fuel produced from grains is variable. It is particularly important for wheat-based distillers’ grains. More information is needed about digestibility and availability of nutriments from these by-products. Particularly, lysine concentration and availability are probably one of the main concerns for nutritive value of by-products of ethanol fuel produced from grains. [less ▲]

Cassini’s Ultraviolet Imaging Spectrograph (UVIS) has completed five <br />years of study of Saturn’s atmosphere and auroras. Two long slit spectral channels are <br />used to obtain EUV data from 56.3-118.2 nm and FUV data from 111.5-191.3 nm. 64 <br />spatial pixels along each slit are combined with slit motion to construct spectral images of <br />Saturn. Auroral emissions are seen from electron-excited molecular and atomic hydrogen. <br />In 2008-2009 UVIS obtained data with the spacecraft well out of Saturn’s ring plane, <br />permitting UVIS to obtain a number of short movies of the rotating auroral structures. <br />In some movies a cusp-like feature is present near noon inside the oval. One movie from <br />2008 day 201 shows parallel linear features on the day side almost at right angles to <br />the main auroral oval that appear, then lengthen, separate in the middle, and then fade <br />away. The same movie also shows one bright "polar flare" inside the oval. A few of <br />the most recent images were obtained at sufficiently close range that 2 spacecraft slews <br />were needed to completely cover the oval. These images provide almost 100 pixels of <br />information across the oval and clearly show multiple arcs of emission on the main oval <br />and scattered emissions inside the oval. We will discuss these features, their locations, and <br />possible interpretations. We also report on a search for an Enceladus auroral footprint <br />on Saturn. [less ▲]

The dynamic response of electro-mechanically actuated micro structures is governed by nonlinear effects which directly influence their performance. To date, most work in the field of micro/nano systems is done experimentally and documented theoretical research consists of nonlinear lumped-mass models as well as continuum mechanics approaches. Existing and codified computational tools for micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) more and more penetrate the market of designers and fabrication of such devices. The present work is the experimental part of a bench-mark study of a selected microbeam structure investigated with aforementioned analytical and computational techniques and compared to experiments performed with a Polytec MSA400 analyzer. The emphasis of this benchmark study is put on the nonlinear dynamic behavior with respect to qualitative and quantitative explanations of the electro-mechanical actuation and damping mechanisms.

In this paper, an integrated modelling methodology for the assessment of population exposure to air pollution, involving all compartments of the DPSIR-concept, is illustrated by an application in The Netherlands. The application demonstrates the advantages of an activity-based approach by presenting three kinds of applications: the calculation of vehicle emissions, the simulation of pollutant concentration patterns and the assessment of the population exposure to air population. Understanding exposure variations among activities and subpopulations can be very useful for scientific and policy purposes: it can provide information on locations or population groups most at risk, or can indicate where and when the largest exposure values occur.

Background: Results of nonmyeloablative HCT in pts with HLA-mismatched donors have been disappointing due to high incidence of graft rejection and severe acute GVHD. Recent studies have suggested that infusion of mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) the day of HCT might promote engraftment and prevent acute GVHD after myeloablative allogeneic HCT. However, some studies suggested that MSC co-infusion might abrogate graft-versus-host alloreactivity and graft-versus-tumor effects. This prompted us to investigate whether MSC infusion a few hours before HCT could allow nonmyeloablative HCT from HLA-mismatched donors to be performed safely (i.e. with a 100-day incidence of nonrelapse mortality < 35%). Methods: 20 patients with hematological malignancies were given MSC (1-2 x 10E6 cells/kg) from third party donors a few hours before PBSC from HLA-mismatched unrelated donors, after conditioning with 2 Gy TBI and fl udarabine 90 mg/m. Postgrafting immunosuppression included tacrolimus (day -3 to +180; tapered by day +365) and mycophenolate mofetil (tid days 0 to +42). HLA-compatibility was assessed at the HLA-A, -B, -C, -DRBI and DQBI loci: 13 pairs were mismatched for at least one HLA class I antigen (including 4 pairs who were also mismatched for 1 HLA-class II antigens (n=3) or 1 HLA-class I allele (n=1)), 1 pair was mismatched for 2 HLA class II alleles, while 6 pairs were mismatched for a single HLA class I (n=3) or HLA class II (n=3) alleles. Results: Median follow-up for surviving patients was 288 (range, 76-571) days. One patient with secondary AML had primary graft rejection, while the remaining 19 patients had sustained engraftment. Median donor T-cell chimerism levels on days 28, 100, 180 and 365 after HCT were 90%, 98%, 96%, and 98%, respectively. Grade II, III and IV acute GVHD were seen in 5, 2 and 1 patients, respectively, while 7 experienced NIH moderate/severe chronic GVHD. Three of 7 patients with measurable disease at transplantation achieved complete remission on days 41, 104 and 353 after HCT. Two patients died of nonrelapse causes on days 74 and 114 after HCT, while 3 died of disease progression. Projected 1-yr overall and progressionfree survivals were 77% and 61%, respectively. Conclusions: HLA-mismatched nonmyeloablative HCT with MSC co-infusion appeared to be safe, with MSC co-infusion possibly mitigating graft-versus-host alloreactivity without abrogating graft-versus-tumor effects. Survival is encouraging. [less ▲]

Through analysis and an attempt to assess the system developed at the level of the Wallonia-Europe Academy in the context of Center for Higher Didactics (Centre de Didactique Supérieure : CDS), the purpose of this article is to reflect on the specificities and constraints of a training limited to teachers in charge of First Generation students, those specificities being especially constraining since the CDS training sessions take place in a larger context : the training of all the university teachers. The Liege experience enlightens some determinant factors : sensitizing first on the interest of such a training, centring the training on close coaching of students learning with a focus on their difficulties or deficiencies and with help given to teachers in resolving them, meeting the diversity of the situations lived by those teachers (notably in terms of students number and disciplines), taking into account their expectations in accordance with their profile, cleverly combining oral speeches, testimonies and debates, suggesting a diversity of concrete intervention trails… By the way, the joined organization of introduction sessions and close coaching seminars seems to be a relevant formula in order to meet such kind of objectives.

An important policy instrument for governments to modify travel behavior and manage the increasing travel demand is the introduction of a congestion pricing system. In this study, the influence of a detailed classification of activities is examined to assess likely traveler response to congestion pricing scenarios. Despite the fact that most studies do not differentiate between activity categories, the value of time and in general the space-time properties and constraints of different types of activities vary widely. For this reason, it is of importance to provide sufficient detail and sensitivity in assessing the impact of congestion pricing scenarios. In addition, a first assessment of possible multi-faceted adaptation patterns of travelers is presented. For these purposes, a stated adaptation study was conducted in Flanders (Dutch speaking region of Belgium). The experiment was conducted through an interactive stated adaptation survey. In the stated adaptation experiment respondents could indicate their stated responses to the congestion pricing scenario. The most prevalent conclusion is that the activity type significantly predetermines the willingness to express a more environmental-friendly behavior (i.e. reducing the number of trips, reducing the total distance traveled, switching to more environmental-friendly modes). Also, the willingness to show ecological activity-travel behavior (e.g. carpooling and using public transport) in a non-pricing situation is a major differentiator of future behavior in a congestion pricing scenario.

Piezoelectric materials are increasingly used in actuators and sensors. New applications can be found as constituents of smart composites for adaptive electromechanical structures. Under in service loading, phenomena of crack initiation and propagation may occur due to high electromechanical field concentrations. In the past few years, the extended finite element method (X-FEM) has been applied mostly to model cracks in structural materials. We present convergence results in the energy norm and for the stress intensity factors Then, some results obout inaccuracies in the stresses near the crack tip are presented. [less ▲]

In the present contribution, a new advanced Gurson model [1] is developed. This new model is an extension of the initial one, to the plastic anisotropy and the mixed (isotropic+ kinematic) hardening of the fully dense matrix. The nucleation and the growth phases are considered by integrating the empirical laws developed by Bouaziz et al. [2] in this new model. These laws, identified on the basis of X-ray microtomography results, display the triaxiality effect on the nucleation and the growth of cavities. This advanced Gurson model is implemented into a finite element code by using an implicit-explicit integration scheme. FE simulations study the behavior of a sample submitted to tensile test and assess the influence of nucleation and growth laws on the formability of this sample. [less ▲]

Cette communication traite d’une population peu souvent prise en compte dans les études migratoires en Europe jusqu'au jour d’aujourd’hui, il s’agit des migrants lesbiennes et gays latino-américains en Europe et nous traiterons ici plus particulièrement des imaginaires de ces migrants. Cette présentation sera divisée en trois parties : nous préciserons d’abord quelle a été la question de départ de cette recherche et les hypothèses posées. Ensuite nous exposerons quels ont été les imaginaires à propos de l’Europe les plus prégnants, c'est-à-dire, ceux qui se sont répétés dans les différents récits de vie. Nous conclurons enfin en analysant plus globalement la dialectique, l’évolution et les associations des imaginaires discutés. [less ▲]

Optimizing decisions on an ensemble of incomplete disturbance trees and aggregating their first stage decisions has been shown as a promising approach to (model-based) planning under uncertainty in large continuous action spaces and in small discrete ones. The present paper extends this approach and deals with large but highly structured action spaces, through a kernel-based aggregation scheme. The technique is applied to a test problem with a discrete action space of 6561 elements adapted from the NIPS 2005 SensorNetwork benchmark. [less ▲]
