An in-depth understanding of the main factors behind built-up development is a key prerequisite for designing policies dedicated to a more efficient land use. Infill development policies are essential to curb sprawl and allow a progressive recycling of low-density areas inherited from the past. This paper examines the controlling factors of built-up expansion and densification processes in Wallonia (Belgium). Unlike the usual urban/built-up expansion studies, our approach considers various levels of built-up densities to distinguish between different types of developments, ranging from low-density extensions (or sprawl) to high-density infill development. Belgian cadastral data for 1990, 2000, and 2010 were used to generate four classes of built-up areas, namely, non-, low-, medium- and high-density areas. A number of socioeconomic, geographic, and political factors related to built-up development were operationalized following the literature. We then used a multinomial logistic regression model to analyze the effects of these factors on the transitions between different densities in the two decades between 1990 and 2010. The findings indicate that all the controlling factors show distinctive variations based on density. More specifically, the centrality of zoning policies in explaining expansion processes is highlighted. This is especially the case for high-density expansions. In contrast, physical and neighborhood factors play a larger role in infill development, especially for dense infill development. [less ▲]

From both a scientific and a practical point of view, two major trends seem to presently rule the adult training field: the psychosociological trend and the ergonomic trend. Though each one has widely contributed in developing training in organizational human resources development, we fail to see any significant level of understanding between the two trends or any dialogue based on scientific objectivity. The aim of this present paper is to hopefully initiate a dialogue with an eye towards development in training practices. A better understanding of these main approaches would bring help to those who seek to train personnel and to better orientate their choice of training. [less ▲]

Ce texte est la traduction française de deux articles de Franz Brentano publiés sous le titre "Über ein optiches Paradoxon" (1892-93). L'auteur y expose son explication de l'illusion de Müller-Lyer et la défend contre les objections de Theodor Lipps. L'explication proposée repose sur la thèse selon laquelle, dans une figure comportant des angles de différentes grandeur (réellement dessinés ou tracés par l'esprit), les angles plus petits sont surestimés et les angles plus grands sous-estimés, ce qui entraîne une estimation différente de la distance les séparant.

This paper offers a reconstruction of Franz Brentano’s mereological solution to the problem of the unity of consciousness and explores some implications of this solution for the ontology of the mind. In section 1 I sketch Brentano’s ontological distinctions between things, collectives, and divisives. In section 2 I present Brentano’s mereological solution and in section 3 I review his main pro-arguments. Eventually, in section 4 I consider some Jamesian objections to the mereological approach. I argue the notion of ‘mental parts’ can be given a rather innocuous meaning by being conceived of as the expression of conceptual distinctions grounded in similarity and contrast relations between total mental phenomena.

L’analyse de la demande est une étape particulièrement importante dans le cadre d’une ingénierie de la formation. Pourtant, en raison de sa parenté particulièrement prégnante avec le courant psychosociologique la formation, elle est rarement étudiée sous l’angle de l’analyse de l’activité : approches psychosociale et ergonomique ne se parlent en effet que trop peu. Cette contribution met dès lors ces deux courants en relation en énonçant notamment la structuration de ces entretiens et les préoccupations des formateurs lorsqu’ils mènent une analyse de la demande.

This report is a policy analysis of legislation on employee sharing and how it is practised in Belgium. More specifically it focuses on groupement d’employeurs/werkgeversgroeperingen, or employer groups. The report discusses the main features and characteristics of the legislation introduced, the actual organisation and implementation of employer groups and their outcomes, as well as their key strengths and weaknesses and potential for transferability. The report is based on available literature and documents about employee sharing and interviews with a variety of stakeholders. This report is also complemented by findings from a case study on an employer group in Wallonia carried out as part of this project – see case study 3: Job’Ardent. [less ▲]

Recent theoretical accounts of verbal and visuo-spatial short-term memory (STM) have proposed the existence of domain-general mechanisms for the maintenance of serial order information. These accounts are based on the observation of similar behavioural effects across several modalities, such as temporal grouping effects. Across two experiments, the present study aimed at extending these findings, by exploring a STM modality that has received little interest so far, STM for musical information. Given its inherent rhythmic, temporal and serial organisation, the musical domain is of interest for investigating serial order STM processes such as temporal grouping. In Experiment 1, the data did not allow to determine the presence or the absence of temporal grouping effects. In Experiment 2, we observed that temporal grouping of tone sequences during encoding improves short-term recognition for serially presented probe tones. Furthermore, the serial position curves included micro-primacy and micro-recency effects, which are the hallmark characteristic of temporal grouping. Our results suggest that the encoding of serial order information in musical STM may be supported by temporal positional coding mechanisms similar to those reported in the verbal domain. [less ▲]

The predominant production model of Bioenergy, which is based on first-generation biofuels developed on a global scale, creates ecological impacts throughout the production chain, resulting in a paradox, as well as social unrest and territorial conflict. This paper focuses on agro-energy and second-generation biofuels, investigating the structural differences, the advantages, the potential problems and the possible solutions of some local biofuel initiatives in North-Western Europe.
