Les technologies internet constituent-elles une simple étape ou bien une profonde révolution dans l’évolution des savoirs et pratiques de management ? L’objet de cet article est de présenter le fruit de plusieurs années d’observation et de réflexion sur le nouvel espace de liberté auquel conduit l’adoption généralisée d’internet. Après avoir évalué le degré de maturité de ce secteur au travers de la performance de quelques acteurs représentatifs, nous décrivons l’incidence de ces technologies sur des dimensions telles que l’information, l’éducation, le commerce, l’investissement et l’industrie. Enfin, nous évoquons quelques pistes de développement futur et les opportunités qui y sont associées. [less ▲]

Compartment syndrome is a unique form of ischaemia of skeletal muscle which occurs despite patency of the large vessels. Decompression allows the influx of activated leucocytes which cause further injury. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant which concentrates preferentially in leucocytes and attenuates reperfusion-induced muscle injury. We have evaluated the use of pretreatment with oral vitamin C in the prevention of injury caused by compartment syndrome in a rat cremasteric muscle model. Acute and delayed effects of pretreatment with vitamin C were assessed at one and 24 hours after decompression of compartment syndrome. Muscle function was assessed electrophysiologically. Vascular, cellular and tissue inflammation was assessed by staining of intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1) and by determination of the activity of myeloperoxidase (MPO) in neutrophils and tissue oedema. Compartment syndrome impaired skeletal muscle function and increased the expression of ICAM-1, activity of MPO and muscle weight increased significantly. Pretreatment with vitamin C preserved muscle function and reduced the expression of ICAM-1, infiltration of the neutrophils and oedema. [less ▲]

Students’ motivation is a major concern of physical education teachers as well as it interest the others educators. Understanding of that complex variable increased during the last two decades. In the physical education domain, many studies were focused on isolated variables related to motivation and on their relationship with pupils’ behaviours. More recently, qualitative researches were conducted to enter in the class specificity and to integrate the complexity and diversity of the variables that influence students’ motivations. Combining questionnaires interviews and observation, some researchers have confirmed that student’s motivation depends on a package of dispositional as well as individual and collective situational factors. They pointed out also the determining role of the teacher in the development of a motivated class climate. This paper will describe a couple of qualitative studies designed to analyse students’ motivation and will underline their contribution in the understanding of the phenomena related to the development of motivation by students. Moreover, as teachers need research directly focused to their concerns, we must now provide them more support helping them to apply research data. The action research design is proposed as an appropriate approach in that way. The description of a pilot action research focused on the improvement of the students’ motivation in a secondary school level girls class will also proposed. The main results should provide the starting point of a reflective process about the strategies that teachers could plan on the gym. As it has been underlined above, the goal of the paper was to share useful information with practitioners and researchers and to encourage them to involve themselves in personal research on students’ motivation.

OBJECTIVE: It was investigated whether pharmacologically induced changes in right ventricular contractility can be detected by a so-called "single-beat" method that does not require preload reduction. DESIGN: Prospective animal research. SETTING: Laboratory at a large university medical center. SUBJECTS: Eight anesthetized pigs. INTERVENTIONS: End-systolic elastance values obtained by a recently proposed single-beat method (Eessb) were compared with those obtained using the reference multiple-beat method (Eesmb). MEASUREMENTS AND MAIN RESULTS: Administration of dobutamine increased Eesmb from 1.6 +/- 0.3 to 3.8 +/- 0.5 mm Hg/mL (p =.001), whereas there was only a trend toward an increase in Eessb from 1.5 +/- 0.2 to 1.7 +/- 0.4 mm Hg/mL. Esmolol decreased Eesmb from 1.7 +/- 0.3 to 1.1 +/- 0.2 mm Hg/mL (p =.006), whereas there was only a trend for a decrease in Eessb from 1.5 +/- 0.2 to 1.3 +/- 0.1. CONCLUSIONS: The present method using single-beat estimation to assess right ventricular contractility does not work as expected, since it failed to detect either increases or decreases in right ventricular contractility induced by pharmacologic interventions.

Stable carbon and nitrogen isotopes (delta(13)C and delta(15)N) and trace metals (Cd, Zn, Cu, Fe, Se, and Hg) were analysed in the tissues of 46 harbour porpoises (Phocoena phocoena relicta) caught in fishing nets along the Ukrainian coasts between 1997 and 1998. Mean delta(13)C values differed significantly between male and female harbour porpoises suggesting a trophic segregation between sexes with a more coastal distribution for females at least during their gestation and nursing periods. Hepatic Hg was correlated to delta(13)C measurements, reflecting a different exposure linked to coastal vs offshore feeding habitats. A geographical comparison with existing data from other regions showed general low levels of Hg, Cd, Cu and Zn in the tissues of harbour porpoises from the Black Sea compared to other Atlantic and North Sea areas.

Un tableau de bord est un outil d’aide à la décision. Il a pour objectif de photographier une situation en un temps donné, d’évaluer le chemin parcouru et à parcourir par rapport à des objectifs, de mettre le doigt sur les situations critiques, et d’éventuellement indiquer des pistes pour rectifier l’agir. C’est ainsi que la Région wallonne et d’autres niveaux de pouvoir supérieurs ou voisins se sont dotés, déjà, de tableaux de bord de l’environnement, du développement durable, de l’économie…. Le Tableau de Bord du Développement Territorial est une première au monde. Ce Tableau de Bord du Développement Territorial (TBDT) est né de la collaboration d’équipes universitaires et multidisciplinaires, accompagnées par une batterie d’experts issus, notamment, de l’administration et du gouvernement wallons. Il se compose de quatre parties directement inspirées de quatre des huit objectifs du Sder, le Schéma de Développement de l’Espace Régional wallon. Le TBDT et ses indicateurs fournissent ainsi des éclairages sur l’état d’avancement de la stratégie territoriale décidée par le Gouvernement wallon en 1999 pour les objectifs suivants : • Finalité 1 : « Répondre aux besoins fondamentaux » • Finalité 2 : « Contribuer à la création d’emplois et de richesse afin d’améliorer la cohésion sociale et économique » • Finalité 3 : « Améliorer l’accessibilité du territoire wallon et gérer la mobilité » • Finalité 4 : « Valoriser le patrimoine et protéger les ressources » Les indicateurs proposés et leur analyse n’entendent bien sûr pas faire le tour de la question, a fortiori pas dans une première édition. Les indicateurs choisis ici prendront place dans un canevas plus large, qui est proposé en tant que cadre conceptuel. (résumé extrait du site cpdt.wallonie.be) [less ▲]

Pathbase (http://www.pathbase.net) is a web accessible database of histopathological images of laboratory mice, developed as a resource for the coding and archiving of data derived from the analysis of mutant or genetically engineered mice and their background strains. The metadata for the images, which allows retrieval and interoperability with other databases, is derived from a series of orthogonal ontologies and controlled vocabularies. One of these controlled vocabularies, MPATH, was developed by the Pathbase Consortium as a formal description of the content of mouse histopathological images. The database currently has over 1000 images on-line with 2000 more under curation and presents a paradigm for the development of future databases dedicated to aspects of experimental biology.
