The Walloon territory is legally fragmented in specific functional areas. Each one of them has formal characteristics which can enter in visual conflict. On the basis of sites observations, we analyse landscape and urban qualities of limits between activities estates and cores of habitat. We also wonder what means to implement to improve their cohabitation. [less ▲]

Somatostatin analogs (SSA) with their potent antisecretory and antiproliferative effects are the main medical treatment option for patients with neuroendocrine tumors, such as gastroenteropancreatic and acromegaly-associated growth hormone secreting pituitary tumors. Although a good portion of acromegalic patients gets normalized after SSA treatment, strict hormonal control is not achieved in a sizeable proportion of these patients. The reasons for this incomplete response to SSA treatment are unclear. We have found that the tumor suppressor ZAC1 (LOT1/PLAGL1) is essential for the antiproliferative effect of SSA in pituitary tumor cells. The aim of the present retrospective cohort study was to determine whether ZAC1 immunoreactivity in archival somatotrophinoma tissue derived from 45 patients with acromegaly routinely pretreated with SSA before surgery, was associated with response to SSA (normalization of GH, IGF-I and presence of tumor shrinkage). All tumors displayed ZAC1 immunoreactivity [weak (+; n = 15), moderate (++; n = 16) and strong (+++; n = 14)]. A significant positive correlation was found between strong ZAC1 immunoreactivity and IGF-I normalization and presence of tumor shrinkage after SSA treatment, which was not affected by age at diagnosis, gender or duration of SSA treatment. These in vivo data combined with the antiproliferative properties of ZAC1/Zac1 provide evidence of a mechanistic role for this transcription factor on SSA induced tumor shrinkage and hormone normalization.

Previous studies have classified the env sequences of bovine leukemia virus (BLV) provirus from different locations worldwide into between two and four genetic groupings. These different studies gave unique names to the identified groups and no study has yet integrated all the available sequences. Thus, we hypothesized that many of the different groups previously identified actually correspond to a limited group of genotypes that are unevenly distributed worldwide. To examine this hypothesis, we sequenced the env gene from 28 BLV field strains and compared these sequences to 46 env sequences that represent all the genetic groupings already identified. By using phylogenetic analyses, we recovered six clades, or genotypes, that we have called genotypes 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6. Genotypes 1-5 have counterparts among the sequence groupings identified previously. One env sequence did not cluster with any of the others and was highly divergent when compared with the six genotypes identified here. Thus, an extra genotype, which we named 7, may exist. Similarity comparisons were highly congruent with phylogenetic analyses. Furthermore, our analyses confirmed the existence of geographical clusters. [less ▲]

Nowadays, mean 3D data aquisition techniques are photogrammetry and laserscanning. Their advantage is the huge amount of points that can be measured in a very short time on the field. Nevertheless, the post-processing associated to these techniques allowing to build a real 3D model from the clouds of points is very long. Therefore, we developed a geocodification ("field to finish") for the 3D data acquisition at a low and/or middle level of details. Despite each point is measured one by one with a total station, the user can gain a lot of time because of the almost-absence of post processing. This paper shows some of the developed techniques and tries to demonstrate the possible complementarity between geocodification, laserscanning and photogrammtry. [less ▲]

Dans cette huitième e-note, Benjamin Huybrechts (Centre d’Economie Sociale, HEC Management School, Université de Liège) analyse la relation entre le commerce équitable et l’entrepreneuriat coopératif. Il en conclut que le modèle du commerce équitable a tout à gagner à tenter d’appliquer les principes d’équité, de justice et de démocratie qu’il promeut également à l’interne des organisations, tant au Sud qu’au Nord. A l’inverse, le mouvement coopératif a tout à gagner à s’appuyer sur le commerce équitable pour donner un nouveau souffle à ses principes et à ses acteurs dans un contexte de dialogue Nord-Sud.

We suggest in this paper that many problems related to Cognitive Radio’s (CR) decision making inside CR equipments can be formalized as Multi-Armed Bandit problems and that solving such problems by using Upper Confidence Bound (UCB) algorithms can lead to high-performance CR devices. An application of these algorithms to an academic Cognitive Radio problem is reported. [less ▲]

In this talk, I will discuss some extensions and refinements of classical finite element tools for the numerical simulation of complex mechatronic systems. The presentation will be divided into three main parts. In the first part, I will show how this approach allows the modeling of dynamic systems with large amplitude motions composed of rigid bodies, flexible bodies, kinematic joints, actuators, sensors and control units. A fully coupled model of a semi-active suspension will be used to illustrate the methodology. The second part will focus on some numerical aspects concerning the time integration of the equations of motion which have the structure of strongly coupled differential-algebraic equations on a Lie group. The treatment of large rotation variables and of the coupling between control state variables and mechanical generalized coordinates will be discussed in more detail. In the third part, the simulation tool will be exploited for the topology optimization of structural components embedded in multibody systems. Generally, topology optimization techniques use simplified quasi-static load cases to mimic the complex dynamic loadings in service. In contrast, I will present an optimization procedure which properly accounts for the actual dynamic interactions which occur during the motion of the flexible multibody system. In order to illustrate the benefits of this integrated design approach, the optimization of a two degrees-of-freedom robot arm with flexible truss linkages will be analyzed. [less ▲]

Previous literature on business failure demonstrates the failure process varies from one failing firm to another. In particular, Argenti (1976) and Laitinen (1991) argue all firms do not enter in a failure process for the same reasons. Nevertheless, despite this theoretical affirmation, few researches propose a taxonomy (or a typology)1 that differentiates several typical “entry doors” in a failure process. Moreover, none of them really focuses on micro and small firms while the literature argues their failure is specific and very common (Julien, 2005). Considering these gaps in the literature and on the basis of an inductive and qualitative analysis, this article proposes an original contribution. Focused on micro and small distressed firms, it presents a taxonomy that highlights seven specific “entry doors” in a failure process. [less ▲]

The modification of aliphatic polyesters by the copper(I) catalyzed azide-alkyne cycloaddition (CuAAC) was successfully implemented in supercritical carbon dioxide (scCO2). Due to the remarkable properties of scCO2, the CuAAC reaction turned out to be quantitative even though the aliphatic polyesters used in this work were insoluble in scCO2. Interestingly enough, the conditions were mild enough to prevent polymer degradation from occurring and finally, efficient removal of the catalyst (>96%) was achieved by scCO2 extraction. [less ▲]
