The socio-economic field researches have indicated the necessity of realizing an integrated consultancy service for beekeepers that will supply technical-economic solutions with a practical character for ensuring the lucrativeness and viability of the apiaries. Consequently, an integrated apiarian consultancy model has been built holding the following features: it realizes the diagnosis of the meliferous resources and supplies solutions for its optimal administration; it realizes the technical-economic of the apiarian exploitation adapted according to its objectives and identifies its optimal administration measures; it manages the local pollination services market; it realizes viable investment projects and ensures the management of their implementation; it elaborates aggregated indicators as efficient instruments of analysis and utilizes and informatics application of apiarian management used for realizing the specific objectives of the apiaries; it integrates the technical, economic and juridical consultancy service.

A one year epidemiological study was carried out between February 2005 and January 2006 in the southern part of Belgium to assess the Campylobacter prevalence in free-range broiler production. Three successive broiler flocks from six Belgian farms were investigated for the presence of Campylobacter spp. during the rearing period. Each flock was visited four times, before and after the outdoor rearing period. During each visit, samples were taken in the broiler house (litter, cecal droppings, water-lines, feed, anteroom) as well as from the outer rearing environment (open-air range). The Campylobacter detection in all samples was carried out according to the ISO 10272 standard. Identification was based on colonial morphology, microscopic examination, and biochemical tests. PCR multiplex was used for genetic confirmation. Campylobacter jejuni was the main species isolated from all contaminated samples. Overall, mixed infections C. jejuni/C. coli represented 40.6%, while C. jejuni and C. coli represented 46.9% and 12.5% of chicken samples respectively. A 100% flock contamination was observed in the 6 farms during the summer/autumn period, whereas only 66.7% and 33.3% of the flocks became Campylobacter-positive in spring and winter respectively, at the end of the rearing period. Half of contaminated flocks were infected before chickens have access to the open-air range. Environmental samples, especially the open-air range soil, were found to be Campylobacter-positive before flock infection. The other potential sources of contamination were delivery tray, anteroom floor and water-lines. Other animal productions like cattle on the farm, no applied rodent control, no cleaning and disinfection of water-lines between flocks, no detergent used for cleansing and thinning were recorded as risk factors. In conclusion, the contact with the environment, particularly the access to an open-air range, appeared to be the major way of Campylobacter contamination of chickens in free-range broiler production.

Le littoral de Saïdia est connu depuis fort longtemps pour sa plage naturelle dont l’évolution est dépendante d’une part des alluvions apportées par la Moulouya qui avait permis l’engraissement de ce littoral, créant un delta avant la construction des barrages et d’autre part des courants marins responsables de la redistribution des sables le long de la côte. Actuellement, ce littoral subit une pression anthropique aggravée, due à la construction d’une station balnéaire et d’une marina à proximité immédiate de la côte. Ceci a provoqué un déséquilibre du système dunaire et a bouleversé les mécanismes d’évolution du littoral, avec des impacts directs sur l’environnement écologique de la zone humide de la Moulouya.

Providing support for flexible automated tagging of text-oriented XML documents (i.e. text with intersparsed markup) is a challenging issue. This requires support for tag-aware full text search (i.e. the capability to skip some tags or make invisible whole sections of the document), match points, and transparent updates. An API addressing this issue is described. Based on the virtualization of selected sections of the XML document, the API produces a tag-aware representation, backed by the document, that is transparently searchable (using keyword search or regular expressions) and updatable, offering support for natural linguistic reasoning.

Les scientifiques définissent les cellules souches (CS) en se basant sur 3 critères (Fig.1): (1) les CS sont douées de capacités d’auto-renouvellement qui leur permettent de maintenir leur « pool » stable ; (2) une CS peut se différencier en plusieurs types de cellules fonctionnelles matures. Par exemple, les cellules souches hématopoïétiques (CSH) sont à l’origine des cellules sanguines ; les cellules souches neurales (CSN) donnent naissance aux neurones, astrocytes et oligodendrocytes ; les cellules souches mésenchymateuses (CSM) peuvent se différencier en fibroblastes, ostéoblastes, chondroblastes et adipocytes ; (3) les cellules souches peuvent repeupler un tissu lésé pour en restaurer la fonction, comme notamment, après une irradiation.

The kingfisher is widespread in Wallonia but is missing locally in middle Belgium and in higher Ardenne. The field prospection for the atlas took place in a favorable climatic context; the current population, estimated at 450 650 pairs, reflects probably the saturation of the habitat. The highest densities are found along large rivers, with important fishing ressources and numerous nesting sites (Lesse, Ourthe, Semois, Viroin). The limiting fator seems to be the lack of nesting sites. [less ▲]

This essay examines Janet Frame's early short story "The Lagoon", and argues that the story alludes to Maori experience, albeit tangentially, in a way which anticipates similar evocations in novels such as A State of Siege and The Carpathians. A close reading shows that cultural imperialism in Frame runs parallel to, or is a side-effect of, interpersonal appropriations. These, in turn, seem to be rooted in human beings' reluctance to accommodate otherness. Recurrently Janet Frame points to a model of cultural and interpersonal interaction which is detached from proprietorial forms of appropriation, but which entails nothing less than the dissolution of the ruling ego. Selfdissolution shall emerge in this reading as the key to a utopian state consisting of the total permeability between the self and the remainder of the world. In this state, transactions become reciprocal since the divisions between self and non-self no longer exist. [less ▲]

The use of high levels of cryoprotectants (CPs) in solutions applied to vitrify oocytes or embryos is an argument to still prefer slow freezing procedure. Is it a justified argument? Out of three studies using mice zygotes we may assume that (i) the intracellular concentration of CPs is far lower than the one in the vitrification solutions, (ii) the intracellular concentration of CPs in the vitrified zygote is in contrary to the common beliefs even lower than the one observed after a slow freezing procedure, (iii) survival after slow freezing reflects the presence of an intracellular vitrified state in these cells.

We have chosen to focus in this paper the concept of fate in Rome, and this, especially through the cult of the goddess Fortuna. Indeed, it has two significant innovations compared to other deities of the Roman pantheon, since on the one hand, it completely changed in nature over the centuries, and, on the other hand, when this gradual change, Goddess Latial it is in its origins, it becomes a goddess Roman itself. Thus, the mother-goddess and fertility, it becomes gradually finally became exclusively in its sanctuaries of Latium, a goddess of luck. (...) [less ▲]
