A large part of the empirical literature devoted to the question of territorial governance and downsizing still refers to a planning view on corporate strategies (Mintzberg, 1994). A particular restructuring strategy, once being designed and announced, should be implemented as such, in a sequential way. Most studies do not consider the probability, quite high in a context of global uncertainty, of radical reorientations of the downsizing strategy. This is exactly what occurred in the Liege area, where a big steel group decided successively - and according to how the way the economic climate goes - (1) to stop an important part of its activity, (2) to reopen it and lastly (3) to suspend it again. In those conditions - 3 radical changes in less than 5 years - one can easily understand that a linear view on territorial reconversion must be questioned. [less ▲]

With the aim to study the impact of the mid-tropospheric circulation on the Greenland ice sheet (GrIS) surface melt simulated by the regional climate model MAR, we developed an automatic Circulation Type Classification (CTC) based on the 500hPa geopotential height from reanalyses over the period 1958-2008. This CTC shows that the dominant mode of the regional atmospheric summer variability around the GrIS is linked to the North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO) and that the surface melt anomalies are highly correlated to the general circulation. It explains notably why a record surface melt was observed during the summers 2007 and 2008. In addition, the climate conditions occurring the 27th August of 2003, where the GrIS temperature was 10°C higher than the normal, were the consequence of an almost unique 500 hPa circulation in the 50 last years.

Hydrogeological models can greatly help simulating groundwater flow in the particular context of mining works. However, classical modeling techniques are not so suited in this context because the medium is strongly disturbed by shafts and networks of galleries. Consequently, specific modeling techniques have been developed. Box model techniques require only few parameters but they calculate only mean water levels in exploited zones and do not consider interactions between exploited and unexploited zones. Conversely, physically-based and spatially-distributed techniques represent explicitly both exploited and unexploited zones and take into account interactions between them but they require a lot of parameters sometimes difficult to estimate. The Hybrid Finite Element Mixing Cell (HFEMC) method is a new modeling technique constituting a compromise between simple and complex techniques used in mining context. The principle of this method is to fully couple a representation of exploited zones by a group of mixing cells possibly interconnected by pipes and a representation of unexploited zones by classical finite elements. Interactions between mixing cells and finite elements of the mesh are taken into account through 3rd type (Fourier) internal boundary conditions. With this method, exploited zones are characterized by mean water levels while spatially-distributed hydraulic heads are calculated for the entire adjacent and overlaying unexploited zones. Additionally, thanks to the coupling between mixing cells and finite elements, water exchanges between exploited and unexploited zones are explicitly taken into account. The HFEMC method allows also simulating groundwater rebound following mine closure and associated phenomena such as water inrushes. Concepts and equations of the HFEMC method are presented and illustrated using test cases. First results of an application on an abandoned coalfield in the region of Liege (Belgium) are also proposed. [less ▲]

The Galileo spacecraft measured hot field aligned electron beams near Io during three flybys. We apply our 3D MHD model of the Io-Jupiter interaction to constrain the location and shape of field aligned electron beams for the individual flyby scenarios. Io continuously generates MHD waves by disturbing the Jovian magnetoplasma. Currents carried by Alfvén waves propagate predominantly along the magnetic field lines. The waves accelerate electrons as the number of charge carriers decreases on their way to Jupiter. These energetic electrons precipitate into the Jovian ionosphere, visible as prominent Io footprint emission in the Jovian aurora. On the other hand electrons have to be accelerated upward to form the beams measured by Galileo. Unlike the beam formation, the position and spatial structure of these beams has been poorly discussed. We adopt our 3D MHD model initial conditions to the individual flyby scenario and determine the spatial morphol- ogy of beams in Io’s orbital plane. We compare our findings to Galileo observations and find very good agreement. Moreover, we use our model to further investigate in detail a recent concept which involves cross-hemisphere electron beams to explain certain auroral features of the Io footprint emission such as a leading spot and secondary spots [Bonfond et al., 2008]. Our results indicate that besides geometrical properties, such as Io’s position in the torus, the incoming plasma density controls the travel path and topology of an electron beam. [less ▲]

In a long-term climatic cooling trend, the Middle Miocene represents one of the last warm periods of the Neogene, culminating with the Miocene Climatic Optimum, MCO (17-15 My). Palynological studies suggest that the warmer climatic conditions prevailing during the MCO allowed warm forests to expand poleward of the subtropical zone, with evergreen forests proliferating in North America and Europe (Jimenez-Moreno and Suc, 2007, Palaeogeogr. Palaeoclimatol. Palaeoecol. 253: 208-225). In this work, we used the Planet Simulator (Fraedrich et al., 2005, Meteorol. Z. 14: 299-304 and 305-314), an Earth system model of intermediate complexity, to carry out several simulation experiments, where we have assessed the effects of the absence of ice on the continents, the opening of the Central American and Eastern Tethys seaways, the lowering of the topography on land and the effect of various atmospheric CO2 concentrations, in agreement with the values reported in the litterature. We then produced several vegetation distributions, using the dynamic vegetation model CARAIB (Galy et al., 2008, Quat. Sci. Rev. 27: 1396-1409), to analyse if the climatic forcings considered are sufficient to explain the expansion of warmer forest types to higher latitudes. Our results indicate that an increase of atmospheric CO2 concentration, higher than the present-day one, is necessary to allow subtropical forest types to expand poleward. This result agrees with recent paleo-atmospheric CO2 reconstruction from stomatal frequency analysis, which suggests 500 ppmv of CO2 during the MCO. However, the required warming may be due to processes not considered in our setup (e.g. full oceanic circulation or other greenhouse gases). [less ▲]

Dans nos sociétés où le recours au droit devient de plus en plus fréquent, de nombreuses initiatives sont mises en place tant par des professionnels du droit, des associations que par les pouvoirs publics afin de favoriser l’accès au droit et à la Justice pour l’ensemble des citoyens. Cette communication analyse l’apparition et la constitution d’un mouvement de contestation du système d’aide juridique belge et les stratégies utilisées par ce mouvement pour faire valoir son point de vue auprès des autorités publiques et des professionnels du droit concernés. Depuis les années 1960, l’aide juridique belge est marquée par deux orientations : une approche légaliste portée par les avocats dans le cadre de consultations organisées par les Ordres, permettant à tout citoyen d’avoir accès à l’expertise juridique d’un professionnel, et une approche militante dans le cadre de consultations dans des associations, des syndicats ou des "boutiques de droit", orientées vers une action de type politique. Suite au lobbying exercé par les avocats, la loi de 1998 relative à l’aide juridique soutient très majoritairement l’aide juridique qui s’inscrit dans la première conception de l’accès au droit. Face à cela, un mouvement de contestation, constitué d’avocats militants, d’associations spécialisées dans l’information juridique et d’hommes politiques, revendique un accès au droit qui ne se limite pas à une consultation « neutre » d’un expert du droit, mais à pratiquer une montée en généralités et à construire, à partir des situations singulières, des causes politiques .

Purpose – Contrarily to brand confusion, which refers to situations when consumers buy an imitator brand thinking that it is the original brand, Brand Image Confusion (BIC) only implies confusion at the brand image level. BIC occurs when consumers have difficulty distinguishing brands with closely resembling brand associations (logo, symbol, package design or other attributes). In this study, we address the lack of an appropriate method to capture the weakening of brand associations and the creation of unwanted associations as a result of BIC. Design/methodology/approach – We first introduce brand concept mapping (BCM), a powerful approach to measuring the brand image, and argue why this method is more appropriate than other methods. Subsequently, we investigate in an experiment how consumer exposure to a new brand with a closely resembling brand name affects their perceptions of the original brand image. Findings - Results suggest that, except when the new brand has exactly the same category and attributes as the original brand, a risk of BIC exists. This risk appears to be moderated by the consumer's previous experience with the brand. Originality/value - This article offers advice to academics and managers with respect to better capturing the consequences of BIC. It shows how the introduction of a brand with a closely resembling brand name, even if the introduction takes place in another category, may harm the original brand. Finally, as a result, it implicitly raises the question of the broadening of the legal trademark dilution concept. [less ▲]

Hydroxyl has been recently observed for the first time in the Venus atmosphere with the VIRTIS spectrometer on board the Venus-Express spacecraft. The (1-0) around 2.81 microns and the (2-0) around 1.46 microns transitions have been detected. The intensity of the two emissions are respectively about 55 and 480 times less intense than the (0-0) oxygen transition (Piccioni et al, A&A, 2008). The possible chemical reactions which can produce hydroxyl on Venus involve O3 and HO2, with the former being the most probable, and hence OH can be used to indirectly infer the ozone distribution on Venus. VIRTIS data in limb mode observation were analyzed to derive the mean distribution of hydroxyl in the night side of Venus and the results are presented here. The typical peak altitude of the two emissions is set at 95-96 km in limb view, a few km lower than the oxygen emission at 1.27 um due to the transition (0-0). The peak altitude of the latter typically occurs at 97-98 km height. The OH full width at half maximum is in average about 7 km, and sometimes higher. The mean map of (1-0) hydroxyl distribution around 2.81 microns shows a maximum of emission of about 130 kR at about 1h local time. The study of the (2-0) hydroxyl distribution at around 1.46 microns results more difficult due to its weak intensity. [less ▲]

Disparity is a major theme in the paleobiological literature. Most studies of disparity have focused on its temporal dynamics over a geological time scale and generally show that phenotypic disparity decreases or remains stable in numerous groups. Surprisingly, the relationship between ontogeny and disparity has received little attention. The ontogenetic dynamics of shape disparity are influenced by diverse interactions such as developmental constraints and/or environmental factors. Coral reefs have an extraordinary diversity of fishes. As the majority of demersal coral reef fishes, the damselfishes (Pomacentridae) have a bipartite life cycle. During the pelagic dispersion phase, all larvae feed on planktonic preys. On the other hand, juveniles and adults associated to the coral reef environment show a high diversity of diets. We test the hypothesis that this ontogenetic change in habitat and diet is related to an increase of shape disparity in head skeletal units (neurocranium, suspensorium, opercle, mandible and premaxilla). We also compare ontogenies of shape among eight species of damselfishes to identify the evolutionary changes in developmental processes modifying shape disparity. By comparing levels of disparity between the eight species at three developmental stages, at the end of the larval phase (reef settlement), at 60 mm SL, and at maximum adult body size, we found that disparity increases significantly during ontogeny. At the end of the larval stage, all skeletal units are already species-specific. The ontogenies of shape are highly divergent among species. At least, evolutionary changes affected three parameters of ontogenetic trajectories of shape in this group: (1) the allometric pattern (the direction in which the vector representing the ontogeny of shape point), (2) the amount of change undergone during the juvenile and adult phases and (3) the rate of shape changes. The interactions among environmental constraints and the three developmental parameters are responsible for increasing disparity. [less ▲]

Alcelaphine herpesvirus 1 (AlHV 1), carried by wildebeest asymptomatically, causes malignant catarrhal fever (WD MCF) when cross species transmitted to a variety of susceptible species of the Artiodactyla order. Experimentally, WD-MCF can be induced in rabbits. The lesions observed are very similar to those described in natural host species. Here, we used the rabbit model and in vivo 5-Bromo-2’-Deoxyuridine (BrdU) incorporation to study WD-MCF pathogenesis. The results obtained can be summarized as follows. (i) AlHV-1 infection induces CD8+ T cell proliferation detectable as early as 15 days post-inoculation. (ii) While the viral load in peripheral blood mononuclear cells remains below the detection level during most of the incubation period, it increases drastically few days before death. At that time, at least 10% of CD8+ cells carry the viral genome; while CD11b+, IgM+ and CD4+ cells do not. (iii) RT-PCR analyses of mononuclear cells isolated from the spleen and the popliteal lymph node of infected rabbits revealed no expression of ORF25 and ORF9, low or no expression of ORF50, and high or no expression of ORF73. Based on these data, we propose a new model for the pathogenesis of WD-MCF. This model relies on proliferation of infected CD8+ cells supporting a predominantly latent infection. [less ▲]

Like modern biotechnologies, nanotechnologies are a generic area of research linked with several interconnected disciplinary fields. They may be converted into a large panel of applications. It also brings, with its development, promises of a quite huge potential including important economic opportunities. Both of those emergent technologies also raise important social, ethical or environmental issues. Nevertheless, many substantive differences remain between biotechnologies and nanotechnologies. The former was introduced in society by a time public actors were less sensitive to public participation, as shows the history of parliamentary Technology Assessment. A lack of public participation is often told to have grounded some public opposition to some particular biotechnologies, with the usually quoted case of GMOs. The latter are currently under development in quite other circumstances, as social shaping of technology begins to be widely acknowledged and role played by STS community grows faster. Nanotechnologies deal with more uncertainties and more complexity. So it is commonly accepted that, within their development process, they should include more public participation to avoid some pitfalls of biotechnologies. Still, other differences that context exist between biotechnologies and nanotechnologies. It may be stressed that biotechnologies have left laboratories for a private financial designing of marketable products and that nanotechnologies are just starting to leave laboratories under great public impulsions, with wide public support and funding, as in the case of the National Nanotechnology Initiative in the US. So in the presentation we consider whether, given those differences, biotechnologies and nanotechnologies are likely to be compared. Then we pick a look to potential consequences related to public participation. Should there be more public participation? What for? Should it be driven in a different way? [less ▲]

Massive stars present the interesting property to generate strong stellar winds. In the particular case of binary systems made of two massive stars, the two stellar winds are likely to collide. In addition, in this scenario, interesting physics is occurring, such as strong high-energy emission, dust production or even particle acceleration. However, our capability to understand these "higher-level" processes relies intimately on our knowledge of stellar and orbital parameters of these binaries, and on our vision of the hydrodynamics that is taking place in these objects. In this context, the purpose of this presentation is to discuss the expected contribution of long baseline interferometry. [less ▲]

A series of novel fluorinated amphiphilic stabilizers of different architecture (diblock, grafted, or palm tree copolymers) were successfully prepared by reversible addition-fragmentation chain transfer and used as stabilizers for the dispersion polymerization of 2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate (HEMA) in fluorinated solvent, namely alpha,alpha,alpha-trifluorotoluene (TFT). The effect of the amount and the architecture of the copolymer on the size and the stabilization of the particles was studied. Whatever the experimental conditions, scanning electron microscopy showed the formation of submicronic (typically about 300 nm) spherical particles, with a narrow size distribution. The principal difference emerges from the concentration of surfactant. Indeed, at higher copolymer concentration, smaller and less aggregated particles were produced. These results were confirmed by dynamic light scattering but these measurements also revealed the presence of larger aggregates (1,5 micrometer). Furthermore, the surfactant properties of the copolymers were investigated by measuring the interfacial tension at the H2O/TFT interface, and the results were correlated to their stabilizing efficiency in the dispersion polymerization of HEMA.

Nowadays, progresses in medicine, biotechnology, microelectronic and many other fields are more and more sustained by the development of novel polymer materials with constantly improved properties and well-defined molecular parameters. In this context, we designed a controlled radical polymerization (CRP) technique based on cobalt complexes which is able to efficiently control the radical polymerization of challenging monomers such as vinyl acetate (VAc), N-vinyl pyrrolidone (NVP) and acrylonitrile (AN). This so-called Cobalt-Mediated Radical Polymerization (CMRP) also gave access to unique diblock copolymers by sequential polymerization of the above mentioned monomers. However, addition of isoprene to polymer chains preformed by CMRP did not lead to the expected poly(isoprene) containing copolymers. Instead, the quantitative coupling reaction of the polymer chains was observed, as assessed by the perfect doubling of the molar mass of the initial macromolecules. This result is very exciting because this so-called Isoprene-Assisted Radical Coupling (I-ARC) reaction is not limited to polymers with low molar masses and homopolymers, contrary to the existing radical chains coupling methods. Indeed, when applied to diblock copolymers, IARC constitutes a straightforward approach for the synthesis of telechelic symmetrical ABA triblock copolymers and is thus a very promising tool for macromolecular engineering.

L’INERIS (Institut National de l’Environnement Industriel et des Risques) France a élaboré pour le compte du Ministère français de l’Environnement les grandes lignes d’une méthodologie permettant de fixer les Valeurs Limites à l’Emission (VLE) locales de manière à respecter les normes de qualité sur l’ensemble d’un bassin versant. Dans ce cadre, l’INERIS désire tester l’utilisation de modèles de transfert de polluants sur des bassins versant pilotes. L’objectif de cette étude est donc d’adapter le modèle PEGASE pour simuler deux micropolluants (à définir) sur deux bassins versants situé dans les bassins hydrographiques gérés par les agences de l’eau française Rhin-Meuse et Adour-Garonne.

La gestion des âges sur le marché du travail est devenue depuis quelques années une question centrale, débattue tant au sein du monde politique que scientifique. Elle s’articule autour de différents thèmes dont les principaux sont les modalités de maintien au travail des personnes de plus de 45/50 ans, les relations intergénérationnelles dans l’entreprise et la gestion des compétences à travers les âges (transfert des compétences et tutorat, développement et mise à jour des compétences), implication et motivation au travail. Dans le cadre d’un projet financé par le Fonds Social Européen, nous avons développé un outil d’auto-diagnostic en matière de gestion des âges et des compétences à destination des services des ressources humaines ou des responsables d’entreprises. Cet outil a pour objectif de sensibiliser les entreprises à la gestion des âges et de l’aider à réfléchir aux actions à mettre en place en fonction du diagnostic posé. La première version de cet outil a été testée dans deux entreprises. Cette phase de test nous a permis de mettre à jour une série de questions soulevées par le mise en œuvre d’une politique de gestion des ressources humaines tenant compte de l’âge au regard d’une situation particulière : les métiers en pénurie.
