Les relations qu’entretiennent la société et le sport sont complexes et multiples. Il est donc assez naturel que la Fondation Roi Baudouin se soit intéressée de près, depuis une dizaine d’années, à ce phénomène aux multiples facettes. Ces deux dernières années,la Fondation s’est lancée dans une exploration plus restreinte de deux thèmes précis: ‘le sport et la cohésion sociale’ et le défi consistant à accroître ‘l’accessibilité du sport’. Le lecteur y trouvera un compte rendu pratique de cette exploration prospective. Les visions et les points de vue des auteurs sont illustrés d’exemples concrets et de suggestions d’amélioration. Le sport possède un potentiel immense pour rendre plus agréable la cohabitation entre les gens. Cet ouvrage est un puissant stimulant pour tous ceux qui veulent défricher ce terrain. [less ▲]

On June 5, 1040, at Stavelot in Ardenne, the royal court attended the consecration of the Benedictine Abbey church. Two years later, the rediscovery of the tomb and relics of Remacle, the holy founder, aroused a renewal of his cult. Two accounts from the middle of the 11th century permit a reconstruction of the events. They show the desire of the reformers to glorify their new construction as the ideal form of the Christian Church, in an era troubled by heresy. [less ▲]

The bovine species is highly susceptible to respiratory dis-eases. A previous experiment has shown that Belgian Blue and White calves have lower spiro-metric variables than Holstein calves. The first aim of this study was to measure the spirometric variables (peak inspiratory flow, peak expiratory flow, maximal tidal volume, maximal ventilation in 15 seconds and ventilatory reserve) of 18 crossed Belgian Blue x Holstein calves and of 32 Dual purpose calves by the lobelin test and to compare them with 19 Holstein calves and 22 Belgian Blue and White calves. The second aim was to test the correlation between some mor-phometrical parameters (chest girth, thoracic width, thoracic length, thoracic height, thoracic section and costal angle) and those spirometric variables. The spirometric variables of the crossed calves and of the Dual purpose calves are situated between the ones of the Belgian Blue and White and of the Holstein. There is a positive sig-nificant correlation between these parameters and the spirometric variables. The higher cor-relation is obtained with the chest girth. All these parameters are easier and quicker measura-ble, and at lower cost than the spirometric variables [less ▲]

Tectonic motion rates of individual faults and regional deformation in an intraplate setting are estimated, based on the analysis of ten yearly surveys of a regional levelling network in NE Ardenne (W Europe). Owing to the frequency and number of measurement epochs, much greater than in classical comparisons of general surveys, the tectonic and near-surface components of ground motion are clearly separated. The marked temporal variability in ground motion strongly depends on the amount of precipitation fallen during the six months preceding each survey and the subsequent drying off of the subsoil at the time of the surveys. Moreover, the ground response to this influence varies from place to place, leading to high differential movements at the local scale. Taking into account the percentage of surveyed faults which moved tectonically during the time of the study, I calculate fault motion rates of 0.06^0.09 mm/yr, similar to geological rates. Moreover, the data indicate that one way for intraplate normal faults to accommodate tectonic strain aseismically is intermittent fault creep, with short episodes of a few mm displacement separated by many year-long time intervals of fault quiescence. A flexural deformation shows the superposition of a tilt event on a trend corresponding to a tilt rate of 0.16 Wrad/yr for a 2.8-km-long segment. [less ▲]

Past landslides have been recognized in the Battice area in E-Belgium. In contrast to the other inactive landslides, the Manaihan landslide responded immediately to heavy rainfall events in the last two decades. This study aims to map its spatial extent and the dominant surface features; to measure surface displacement using GPS; to investigate subsurface structure with Cone penetration test (CPT) and corings; and to determine the depth of the shear surface by inclinometers. Results show a partial landslide reactivation. Surface velocities range between 20 and 40 cm/year and are strongly dependent on winter rainfall. CPT results give clear boundaries between the landslide mass and the undisturbed bedrock in the head scarp. Distinct shear surfaces have been determined with displacement rates up to 15.8 mm in 21 days. Further research should apply geophysical methods for two-dimensional information on the ground, investigate geotechnical properties of the landslide mass, model slope instability, and determine the influence of a sewage pipe crossing the central landslide mass as a potential cause for landslide activity.

BACKGROUND: Molecular characterization of cattle breeds is important for the prevention of germplasm erosion by cross breeding. The Indian zebu cattle have their significant role in evolution of present day cattle breeds and development of some of the exotic breeds. Microsatellites are the best available molecular tools for characterization of cattle breeds. The present study was carried out to characterize two Indian cattle breeds, Ongole and Deoni, using microsatellite markers. RESULTS: Using 5 di- and 5 tri-nucleotide repeat loci, 17 Ongole and 13 Deoni unrelated individuals were studied. Of the ten loci, eight revealed polymorphism in both the breeds. The di-nucleotide repeat loci were found to be more polymorphic (100%) than tri-nucleotide repeat loci (60%). A total of 39 polymorphic alleles were obtained at 4.5 alleles per locus in Ongole and 4.1 in Deoni. The average expected heterozygosity was 0.46 (+/-0.1) and 0.50 (+/-0.1) in Ongole and Deoni breeds, respectively. The PIC values of the polymorphic loci ranged from 0.15 to 0.79 in Ongole and 0.13 to 0.80 in Deoni breeds. Six Ongole specific and three Deoni specific alleles were identified. The two breeds showed a moderate genetic relationship between themselves with a FST value of 0.117 (P = 0.01). CONCLUSIONS: This preliminary study shows that microsatellite markers are useful in distinguishing the two zebu breeds namely, Ongole and Deoni. Further studies of other zebu breeds using many microsatellite loci with larger sample sizes can reveal the genetic relationships of Indian breeds. [less ▲]

L’objectif de ce travail est d’étudier, dans les conditions réelles de production, la variabilité de la qualité technologique, organoleptique et microbiologique de la viande de porc et d’objectiver les relations qui peuvent exister entre les variables évaluées. L’analyse en composantes principales a permis de mettre en évidence des groupes de variables et de visualiser les relations qui peuvent exister entre ces variables. La première composante principale est corrélée aux variables relatives à la qualité technologique et organoleptique de la viande. Elle met en opposition le pH45 d’une part et les paramètres L*, b* et Cond45 d’autre part. La deuxième composante principale peut être considérée comme un axe de qualité microbiologique. L’analyse en composantes principales a également permis de mettre en évidence des groupes d’individus. A titre d’exemple, les génotypes halothane ont pu être différenciés sur ce type de représentation de la variabilité de la qualité de la viande. [less ▲]

The significance of a Salmonella serological technique has been evaluated in 91 batches from 9 pigs fattening herds. Samples for bacteriology (method based on motility of Salmonella in semi-solid medium) were taken at different steps during fattening: 2, 3 and 4 months after the beginning of the fattening period. The serological test (Salmotype Pig-LPSElisa) has been applied on meat juice obtained after thawing of diaphragm meat cuts taken on the slaughter line. The performances of the serological method were evaluated by choosing microbiological method as reference. Correlations were practiced by comparing results of optical densities of samples with cut-off values corresponding to 4 different antibody concentrations. Forty-eight different possibilities have thus been created depending on the percentage of positive samples above the cut-off value and in function of arithmetic and geometric means. The results have shown that negative predictive values ranged from 52.8 and 100 % and that the relative sensitivity varied between 4.5 and 100 %. One classification model appeared better than the others due to maximization of Kappa, negative predictive and relative sensitivity values: batch considered positive when at least 50 % of samples were characterized by an optical density higher than OD20% (optical density corresponding to an antibody concentration of 20 %). The present experiment showed the importance of good classification of individual serological results in order to strengthen the on-farm bacteriological surveillance of herds. [less ▲]
