La Bibliothèque royale de Belgique a fait l’acquisition récemment d’une édition de la Logica vetus d’Aristote imprimée à Alost par Jean de Westphalie et Thierry Martens en 1474. Cet achat revêt un caractère exceptionnel tant par la rareté de cette impression que pour son intérêt concernant l’histoire de l’émergence de l’imprimerie en Belgique. En effet, ce livre, jusqu’alors uniquement connu par huit feuillets, comporte un colophon mentionnant non seulement l’adresse bibliographique complète du livre, mais aussi le lien qui unissait les deux typographes : Thierry Martens est ainsi qualifié d’associé – socius – de Jean de Westphalie. La présentation de cet ouvrage sera l’occasion de revenir sur les débuts du premier atelier typographique de Belgique ainsi que sur les débats historiographiques qui lui sont liés. Un fac-similé de cet unicum rehausse l’intérêt de cette publication pour les incunabulistes et les amateurs de livres anciens. [less ▲]

Abstract : Here, we aim to develop the conditions of possibility of a collective learning process for the forest ecosystem governance. We argue that stakeholders’ discussion and public debate should be intrinsically interconnected with the expertise of the soil-plant cycle. As Chris Argyris underlines, “[i]t is possible to develop knowledge, both valid and which can be “put into action” in everyday life” and which “provides an opportunity to test it in everyday life”. Primary forest is the most biologically diverse type of vegetation system and is characterized by a balance between biomass production and soil evolution. Soil, as the nutrient source, plays a crucial role in the forest productivity. Currently, only 21% of the world forests are indigenous. Human activities, through the “production paradox”, disrupt this homeostasis between the nutrient source and the vegetal production. The mobility of nutrients in the soil-plant system has to be taken into account for sustainable forest governance. Then, the knowledge of the relationship between soil and plant is a “proper way to compose, decompose, or recompose problem sets” and could also be a proper possibility of “controversy” that allows us to elaborate a collective and critical learning process which “entails an appreciation of complexity and an effort to integrate problems into a more comprehensive whole”. Finally, our governance hypothesis focuses on a critical environmental ethics which integrates both the common sense moral feelings involving stakeholders and the knowledge of causal relationship in a forest ecosystem (i.e. soil-plant cycle). This critical environmental ethics will be established on a “critical knowledge” as Jean Ladrière underlines it into his work on science and rationality. [less ▲]

The city of Valencia has a population of 807,396 inhabitants and is the centre of an extensive metropolitan area which brings the number to a million and a half people. This total represents 18% of the population of the Valencian region and makes Valencia, in terms of population, the third largest city in Spain after Madrid and Barcelona. It is also the third largest city in terms of registered immigrants. Foreign nationals – just as Spaniards – have to register in the municipal census. The city population increased throughout the 20th century and was stable during the 1990s. At the beginning of the 21st century, a strong migratory inflow has led to a new dynamic increase in the population. [less ▲]

Antwerp is the largest city in Flanders and its population comprises around 13% foreigners. Yet a quarter of the inhabitants have a migration background and they represent 30% of the working population. Until recently, the diversity policy adopted by the city focused on specific target groups – people with a migration background was one of them. It was a categorial diversity policy. And specific departments were in charge to stimulate and support the policy through specific measures and actions with respect to each specific target group. The Integration Service and in particular the IS diversity consultants developed intensive contacts with some other services such as the Urban Poverty Department. The main challenges remain the language barriers and the recruitment procedures of the city. [less ▲]

The complaint of excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS), commonly encountered in clinical practice, may arise from a variety of psychiatric disorders, most importantly depression. Even though EDS frequently leads depressed patients to seek medical assistance, it is commonly under-evaluated and under-diagnosed. Therefore, a comprehensive understanding and management of EDS is essential in the clinical assessment of depression. Within a theoretical framework, a chronobiological approach may shed new light on the complex interaction of EDS and depression. In this review, studies on EDS and depression are summarized and discussed within the context of circadian and sleep regulatory mechanisms. Furthermore, potential chronobiological therapeutic strategies are proposed to address some of the unmet needs in the treatment of EDS and depression. [less ▲]

De nombreux textes conventionnels et internationaux prévoient des dispositions de protection des populations non combattantes en temps de conflit armé. Parmi ces populations civiles, certains groupes sont considérés comme plus vulnérables, dont les femmes et les enfants, pour lesquels des protections spéciales sont prévues. Malgré ces dispositions particulières, ces populations continuent de subir des exactions en temps de guerre, par exemple le viol systématique et massif, ou l'utilisation d'enfants dans les combats.

STUDY OBJECTIVES: The ultradian NREM-REM sleep cycle and the circadian modulation of REM sleep sum to generate dreaming. Here we investigated age-related changes in dream recall, number of dreams, and emotional domain characteristics of dreaming during both NREM and REM sleep. DESIGN: Analysis of dream recall and sleep EEG (NREM/REM sleep) during a 40-h multiple nap protocol (150 min of wakefulness and 75 min of sleep) under constant routine conditions. SETTING: Centre for Chronobiology, Psychiatric Hospital of the University of Basel, Basel, Switzerland. PARTICIPANTS: Seventeen young (20-31 years) and 15 older (57-74 years) healthy volunteers INTERVENTIONS: N/A. MEASUREMENTS AND RESULTS: Dream recall and number of dreams varied significantly across the circadian cycle and between age groups, with older subjects exhibiting fewer dreams (P < 0.05), particularly after naps scheduled during the biological day, closely associated with the circadian rhythm of REM sleep. No significant age differences were observed for the emotional domain of dream content. CONCLUSIONS: Since aging was associated with attenuated amplitude in the circadian modulation of REM sleep, our data suggest that the age-related decrease in dream recall can result from an attenuated circadian modulation of REM sleep.

The purpose of this work is to improve the precision of the elemental analysis of coal using laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS). The LIBS technique has the ability to allow simultaneous elemental analysis and on-line determination, so it could be used in the elemental analysis of coal. Organic components such as C, H, O, N and inorganic components such as Ca, Mg, Fe, Al, Si, Ti, Na, and K of coal have been identified. The precision of the LIBS technique depends strongly on the experimental conditions, and the choice of experimental parameters should be aimed at optimizing the repeatability of the measurements. The dependences of the relative standard deviation (RSD) of the LIBS measurements on the experimental parameters including the sample preparation parameters, lens-to-sample distance, sample operation mode, and ambient gas have been investigated. The results indicate that the precision of LIBS measurements for the coal sample can be improved by using the optimum experimental parameters. [less ▲]
