En Belgique, et plus précisément en Wallonie, la Cellule de reconversion est le dispositif privilégié depuis 1977 par les pouvoirs publics afin de prendre en charge les travailleurs victimes d’un licenciement collectif et de leur permettre de retrouver un emploi. Financé entièrement par la Région Wallonne, le dispositif est géré au jour le jour par des conseillers du service public de l’emploi wallon, le Forem, en partenariat avec un ou plusieurs « accompagnateurs sociaux », anciens délégués syndicaux issus de l’entreprise en restructuration et comptant parmi les victimes du licenciement collectif. Le dispositif est mis en place pour une période d’un an. Durant cette période, il accompagne les travailleurs licenciés au rythme d’activités collectives et individuelles, de formations courtes ou longues, afin de permettre à ces travailleurs de retrouver un emploi, dit « de qualité ». La cellule a pour vocation d’être le guichet unique à disposition de ses bénéficiaires afin que ceux-ci y remplissent leurs obligations administratives en tant que demandeurs d’emploi, s’inscrivent à une ou plusieurs formations assurées par des prestataires privés ou publics, répondent à une offre d’emploi, etc. En ce sens, la cellule joue un rôle d’interface entre le collectif de travailleurs licenciés et le marché de l’emploi. Cet article s’inscrit dans le cadre du projet « En-Train » financé par l’Agence Belge du Fonds Social Européen et dont l’objectif est d’accompagner le développement et la formalisation des cellules de reconversion. Une des activités de ce projet portant sur l’analyse qualitative et quantitative de ces cellules, nous proposons de présenter ici les premiers résultats du suivi d’une cellule lancée en région liégeoise au printemps dernier. Il s’agira non seulement d’analyser les résultats de ce dispositif, en se posant la question du taux de retour en emploi après dix mois de fonctionnement de la cellule, mais également d’interroger les bénéficiaires de ces cellules sur la manière dont ils envisagent leur reconversion professionnelle.

1. Matériels et méthodes. Les difficultés mnésiques des patients à un stade léger d’une maladie d’Alzheimer sont marquées par une atteinte sévère de la récupération consciente des informations dans leur contexte d’apprentissage (recollection). Par contre, la reconnaissance des informations sur base d’un sentiment de familiarité (savoir qu’une information a été rencontrée auparavant sans récupérer son contexte d’apprentissage) est relativement préservée (Dalla Barba, 1997; Rauchs et al., 2007). L’objectif de cette étude était de révéler les substrats cérébraux des processus de recollection et familiarité dans la maladie d’Alzheimer au moyen d’une tâche de mémoire associative analysée selon les principes de la Procédure de Dissociation des Processus (Jacoby, 1991). Pendant une acquisition en IRM fonctionnelle, 26 patients avec une maladie d’Alzheimer probable à un stade léger et 17 témoins âgés ont étudié des paires de mots, puis ont dû les reconnaître parmi des paires recombinées (deux mots vus mais pas ensemble) et des paires nouvelles. 2. Résultats. Les analyses comportementales ont indiqué que 10 patients Alzheimer avaient des indices de recollection nuls (AD-), tandis que 16 autres patients présentaient des processus de recollection résiduels (AD+) bien que significativement moins importants que les témoins. Par contre, le score estimant la contribution des processus de familiarité était équivalent dans les trois groupes. L’analyse de l’activité cérébrale a montré que, chez les patients AD+ comme chez les témoins, la recollection activait le cortex cingulaire postérieur. Cependant, cette région était fonctionnellement connectée à l’hippocampe, au cortex pariétal inférieur et au cortex préfrontal dorsolatéral uniquement chez les témoins. Par ailleurs, dans les trois groupes, la familiarité activait le sillon intrapariétal. 3. Conclusion. Cette étude montre un déficit sévère de recollection et une relative préservation de la familiarité chez des patients Alzheimer. Lorsque les patients possèdent des capacités résiduelles de recollection, celles-ci sont soutenues par le cortex cingulaire postérieur comme chez les personnes âgées saines. Cependant, une perturbation de la connectivité fonctionnelle entre le cortex cingulaire postérieur et des régions impliquées dans la mémoire relationnelle, les aspects subjectifs de la recollection et les processus de monitoring post-récupération suggère que la qualité de la recollection résiduelle des patients Alzheimer est dégradée. 4.

It has been suggested that mathematics learning disabilities, including those of genetic origin, result from a basic impairment of quantitative representations. In Williams syndrome in particular, recent studies report a specific deficit in tasks requiring symbolic and non symbolic numerical magnitude processing (Krajcsi et al., 2009 ; O’Hearn & Landau, 2007; Paterson et al., 2006). However, to our knowledge, the integrity of non numerical quantitative processing has never been investigated. Moreover, in the visual modality, it is difficult to disentangle the influence of the massive visuo-spatial impairment, which is a main characteristic of the cognitive phenotype of Williams syndrome, from the numerical magnitude processing deficit. Therefore, numerical and non numerical acuity were assessed in a group of patients with Williams syndrome using tasks with different visuo-spatial processing requirements. To assess the processing of non numerical continuous quantities, participants were asked to compare the length of two sticks (spatial dimension) vs. the duration of two sounds (temporal dimension). Their ability to process non-symbolic numerical magnitudes was explored in tasks requiring the comparison of two arrays of elements (spatial arrangement) versus two sequences of dots flashed in a single location (no spatial processing). Finally, their access to symbolic number meaning was assessed through the numerical comparison of two Arabic numbers vs two Spoken verbal numerals. In each task, the ratio between the quantities was manipulated in order to measure the entire psychophysic curve and to measure the acuity of their numerical and non numerical magnitude representations in non-symbolic tasks.

BACKGROUND. Overweight and obesity in youth must be combated through a multiple approach combining management principles in nutrition and physical activity (PA). In the hospital context, medical staff seems to be more focused on nutrition. AIM. In this study, we proposed to implement a specific intervention focusing on PA in parallel with traditional paediatric and dietetic visits designed to 6-12 year-old children. METHODS. Data were collected in three steps: (1) after a visit at the hospital, subjects and their parents answered to a questionnaire (lifestyle, representation about PA) and attended to a meeting during which they received written (illustrated booklet) and oral cues about PA as well as an invitation to use a PA diary and a pedometer; (2) before the next visit (almost 8 weeks interval), they were free to apply the recommendations; (3) after the next visit to the hospital, subjects analyzed the diary with one of the researchers and answered to questions about their current lifestyle and representations about PA. 34 children respected the whole protocol. FINDINGS. Among the children and their parents, representations of PA changed between the visits (PA was no longer regarded merely as sport). Major changes were also identified in children’s lifestyle (increase of number of weekly PA, family PA, weekly PA time; decrease of inactivity time like TV or video games). Only 27 children out of 34 used the PA diary at least once (information were recorded for a mean of 18 days/child between the 2 visits – a third of the duration of the interval). The pedometer has been used by 15 children and was considered as a motivating tool. 58.5% of comments collected at the end of the second meeting were positive and emphasized the interest of the intervention; 24.6% were negative and mainly focused the PA diary). DISCUSSION. This study underlines the need to improve the family's representations about PA in paediatric and dietetic visits. It supports PA experts' integration in the staff. [less ▲]

From Engels to Adorno and Horkheimer, to Althusser or Bourdieu everything seems to occur as if criticism in its main variation – the Marxist approach – had worked to feed a principal way of thinking: individuals (workers, proletarians, social actors, etc.) unconsciously reproduce the social structures of capitalism which alienate them. They accept the conditions enforced on them and no longer seek to rebel against a world which substantially impoverish their labor, their soul and their creativity. Even worse: they ensure the reproduction of the system by seeking to engage in mass consumption at any price. There is little doubt that Marx was not wrong to point out, with the concept of alienation, the inhuman working conditions in which the nineteenth century proletariat was, and which a huge part of the workers still have to face all around the world nowadays. Should the worker-consumer only be seen as a scatterbrain being who unconsciously reproduces, to use Bourdieu’s language, the conditions of his domination? My intention here is not to put Marx in the dock, since he is, I am sure, an author whose work has remained of unequalled power for over a century. However, I would like to try and show that by dint of favouring almost exclusively the concept of alienation in his work, there is a considerable risk that only a negative path for criticism can emerge from it. It is that initial heart of criticism which was Marx’s thinking and which has irrigated the whole twentieth century from the Frankfurt School to French critical sociology that I would like to put into perspective by suggesting a new agenda for critical research that I would characterize as, for now and for lack of a better term, positive. This agenda of research is in its early days. Nonetheless, in my opinion, a theoretical base should be given to it straight away. The following pages will try to establish it by notably drawing on the main theoretician of libertarian anarchism, Marx’s rival on socialist theory, Proudhon. However, I would like to insist on the fact that the purpose is not to truly turn the latter against Marx . Because I think that Marx must remain a topical issue, I rather wish to demonstrate that, at the cradle of criticism, right next to him, there is an equally – or even more? – Materialist position which could be pertinently combined to the criticism of alienation . This position might be helpful to highlight, here and now, possibilities of emancipation through labor which are not exclusively conditioned by the “Grand Soir”. Proudhon’s work is certainly philosophically and economically weaker than Marx’s. However, Proudhon is very interesting in the way he manages to see in a “laboring” man something else than a slave-laboring animal deprived of subjectivity by capitalism and who only exists as a production tool. In that way, criticism, if any, may be considered as positive [less ▲]

Clownfishes are brightly coloured coral reef fishes well known for their mutualistic symbiosis with tropical sea anemones. These fishes live in social groups in which there is a size-based dominance hierarchy. In this structure where sex is socially controlled, agonistic interactions are numerous and serve to maintain size differences between individuals adjacent in rank. Clownfishes are also prolific callers whose sounds seem to play an important role in the social hierarchy. Agonistic interactions being involved in daily behaviour suggest how important acoustic communication might be in their way of life. Recording the different acoustic behaviours indicated that sounds are divided into two main categories: aggressive sounds produced in conjunction with threat postures (charge and chase), and submissive sounds always emitted when fish exhibited an appeasement display (namely the head shaking movements). Both types of sounds showed size-related intraspecific variation in dominant frequency and pulse duration: smaller individuals produce higher frequency and shorter duration pulses than larger ones. Consequently, these sonic features might be useful cues for individual recognition within the group. On the other hand, no acoustic call was associated with courtship and reproductive behaviours. Unlike other pomacentrids, sounds are not produced for mate attraction in clownfishes but to reach and to defend their breeding status, which explains why constraints are not important enough for promoting call diversification in this genus. However, acoustic signals seem to be an integral part of the peculiar way of life of clownfishes, although they are restricted to agonistic interactions only. [less ▲]

Majority of operational sea surface temperature (SST) infra-red (IR) products have small overall bias but exhibit higher absolute biases in specific regions. Previous studies [for example Tomazic et al., 2011] showed that over Adriatic Sea there is a positive summer bias sometimes exceeding 0.5 K. Methodology to decrease regional biases [Le Borgne et al., 2011], based on using atmospheric profiles, surface SST fields and radiative transfer model to simulate the non-linear split window SST (NLSST) algorithm error, was used to assess the impact of atmospheric profiles with different spatial resolution (ECMWF: 0.125 deg and ALADIN 2 km), different input surface SST fields (OSTIA 6 km and CNR UHR L4 1 km) and different time and space averaging criteria’s in deriving the algorithm correction. SST corrections derived for the NLSST Spinning Enhanced Visible and Infrared Imager (SEVIRI) algorithm for five months (July, October and December 2010 and March and July 2011) are validated with AATSR L2 SST fields and compared to already implemented regional correction procedure at Center de Meteorologie Spatiale (CMS) to assess the optimal combination of space and time averaging criteria’s and input fields. Results show that the best improvement for all available months and for both day and night is obtained when using spatial averaging over the whole domain in combination with time averaging between the last 15 and last 31 days both for day and night time analysis. Using higher resolution ALADIN atmospheric profiles with OSTIA input SST fields didn’t improve the SST correction compared to using combination of coarser ECMWF atmospheric profiles and OSTIA input SST. Small improvement, based only on analysis for two months in 2011, is obtained when using both higher spatial resolution atmospheric profiles (ALADIN) and higher resolution input SST fields (CNR UHR L4 1 km). The best improvement obtained for spatial averaging over the whole domain (Adriatic Sea) suggests that the domain should be more extended (to Mediterranean Sea) to derive optimal spatial averaging, while conclusion of improvement obtained when using both the higher spatial resolution atmospheric profiles and input SST field need extension of analysis on other months in 2010.

This paper muses on whether there can be, there is, and there should exist a nexus between European Union (“EU”) competition law and industrial policy. A well-known, long lasting grievance in the history of EU competition law is indeed that the European Commission (“the Commission”) has allegedly enforced the competition rules dogmatically, and turned a blind eye on industrial policy considerations. Lately, this policy debate has revived. With the current economic debacle in the Western world, decades of free-market economic policies – including competition policies – inherited from the so-called “Washington consensus” are called into question. In contrast, thriving economic models like Brazil, China, or India where the State interferes with the market at the expense of free competition, are increasingly looked by the “old world” as a possible source of inspiration. Those new developments justify devoting another paper to the question whether industrial policy considerations could and should inform EU competition enforcement. To address it, we follow a four steps methodology. We first solve definitional issues by describing the various possible meanings of “industrial policy” (I). Second, we follow a legalistic approach to review whether such considerations can, as a matter of positive law, play a role (II). Third, we turn to empirical analysis, to examine if there has been some industrial policy influence in the Commission’s case-law (III). Fourth, we review consequentialist arguments to assess whether industrial policy considerations should play a stronger role in EU competition enforcement (IV). [less ▲]

Dairy milk production in Moc Chau contributes to improve the welfare of farm households. It generates daily income for farmers, provides a highly nutritious food for people, create employment opportunities for the society. Although it brings a rather high income for farmers, their lives are very hard, and their living standard is quite low. This study aims to apply a monitoring system in farms to assist farmers improving their performance. Six field trips were carried out to help dairy farmers to monitor their farms and collect economic and technical data in 2010-2012 in Moc Chau. The main findings are: stocking rate, milk yield and income were rather high but varied largely from this farm to others. Cost control in farm was not good thus dairy margin was not high. Purchased feed cost was too high. Homegrown feed accounted for a small part of cost but produced large amount of milk while purchased feed dominated a very large proportion of cost but produced less milk quantity. Most of the farmers followed the objective of increasing milk production but did not pay attention to the quality of herd and milk; did not make an optimal decision. Experience, land area, and herd size were the major factors that increased economic performance in farms. [less ▲]

We report on the extraction of dihadron fragmentation functions (DiFF) from the semi- inclusive production of two hadron pairs in back-to-back jets in e+e− annihilation. A nonzero asymmetry in the correlation of azimuthal orientations of opposite π+π− pairs is related to the transverse polarization of fragmenting quarks through a significant polarized DiFF. A combined analysis of this asymmetry and the spin asymmetry in the SIDIS process ep↑ → e′(π+π−)X has led to the first extraction of the u and d-flavor transversity parton distribution function in the framework of collinear factorization.

The present study approaches the extraction of lignin samples from several lignocellulosic renewable feedstocks, including raw materials from Greece. The valorization of these lignins samples into high-added value components will also be explored using chemical catalytic routes and “green chemistry” methodology. The present study is a collaboration of Biomass Group of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece and Gembloux Agro-Bio Tech, in the frame of UBIOCHEM COST ACTION C0903, performed at the Laboratories of Biological and Industrial Chemistry Unit, Gembloux Agro-Bio Tech, University of Liege with samples preparation at AUTh. The lignin extraction from lignocellulosic biomass takes place via chemical, thermal and mechanical routes, including acid or basic processes, steam cracking, steam explosion. Statistical approaches (i.e. response surface methodology) are used for the optimization of processing parameters. Physico-chemical characterization of lignin materials is considered using specific techniques developed by the research team of Agro-Bio-Tech Institute, including qualitative and quantitative mono- and bidimensionnal NMR spectroscopy, MALLS, FT-IR, TGA and chemical methods. The characterization of the lignocellulosic materials before and after pretreatment protocol is investigated regarding the determination of extractives, ash, total lignin contents, and structural carbohydrates as well as proteins contents. Chemical catalytic routes and “green chemistry” methodology is conducted in order to valorize lignin. [less ▲]
