The aim of the work consists in determining the level of profitability in apiarian exploitations on the size categories: apiarian exploitations with a herd less than 50 bees families, apiarian exploitations with a herd of 50 to 100 bees families and apiarian exploitations with a herd larger than 100 bees families. The average size of the apiarian exploitation in the investigated sample was of 24,6 bees families per apiarian exploitation (NIS, 2008). The subjects category (the beekeepers in the apiarian exploitations) which hold the biggest share in the sample was the one with a herd smaller the 50 bees families with 81,0%. The field socio-economic research have been made as a part of the PN II 51-085/2007 Parteneriate research contract. The investigated sample has been comprised from the beekeepers in 6 apiarian exploitations from 21 counties. The analyzed period was 2006-2009. The apiarian exploitations with a size between 0-50 bees families have obtained in 2006 a honey production of 22,7 kg/family continuing in 2007 with a loss of 1,7 kg/family following in 2007 to obtain an increase of 4,9 kg/family from the previous year. In 2008, the honey production was of 24,9 kg/family in the case of apiarian exploitations with a size between 0-50 families, continuing with an increase of 5,2 kg/family in the case of exploitations with a size between 50 and 100 families and ending with an increase of 0,8 kg/family for the exploitations with over 100 bees families. The average expenditures value on the three types of apiarian exploitation was of 150,5 lei/family and the average of the gross profit was of 118,4 lei/bees family. The average of the gross profit on the three types of exploitation was of 8814,3 lei/exploitation and that of the profit rate was of 81,8%. [less ▲]

This paper focuses on the numerical modeling of nanoindentation tests. The first goal of this study is to collect essential material parameters and boundary conditions from the literature and to complete the data required to accurately model nanoindentation tests. The second goal of this study consists in validating the material parameters identified from macroscopic tensile tests of the body-centered cubic b phase of Ti-5553, a new generation of titanium alloy. This validation is performed looking at experimental and numerical nanoindentation curves obtained for different grain orientations. [less ▲]

The reconsideration of granite fragments unearthed by Petrie at Tell Farʿun / Nebesheh allows us to clarify the attribution of the small temple of the ancient town of Imet. Their identification to two door-jambs confirms the first impression that could give the field, namely that the small temple is not the place of worship of Wadjet of Imet, the main deity, but the one of Min. The date of the construction of this temple, given by a foundation deposit of Amasis (26th dyn.), coincides with the date of the apparition of Min of Imet in the documentation. [less ▲]

Image analysis is a tool having great potential for the quantification of fragmented rocks size-distribution. This recent technique should be validated according to sieving measurements. Current acquisi-tion allows the obtaining of only 2D information from images. In addition, the 3D passage is extremely prob-lematic. Firstly, the usual stereological methods do not work because the reasoning is carried out on non-random projections. Secondly, estimated sizes differ from those measured by sieving. Last, a quantity of mat-terial measured during sieving remains inaccessible by image analysis, due to masking and segregation. This paper evaluates a method directly connecting 2D raw data to 3D sieving measurements. The cited problems are reduced as much as possible thanks to the adoption of an isotropic 2D sorting criterion, and thanks to samples without masking and segregation. Important results have been obtained. Firstly, the characteristic size is correctly estimated in 2D, giving access to computing the uniformity index through known models. Secondly, the stereological approach, bringing into play proportions, is not sufficiently robust to reconstruct easily volume distributions. Limits of this kind of methods, which are, unfortunately, currently used in several granulometric applications, are analyzed. [less ▲]

These days authors who use stereotypical characters such as the African woman warrior or the old field slave smoking his pipe and humming blues songs, would probably be considered as intellectually biased or mentally colonized. Yet, it is also the case that, for some African American writers like Amiri Baraka, Charles Fuller and Lorraine Hansberry, these characters represent a link between Black people and their past or, to use Pierre Nora’s term, they are lieux de mémoire. This is why these authors oppose the more or less general attitude which consists in dismissing these clichéd-figures from the field of representation, for this would amount to erasing an entire the inception segment of African American history. Going against the trend of the time, these playwrights thus give a voice to those silenced by normative history and, to decolonize symbols which after all belong to the past of Black people, Baraka in The Slave (1964), Fuller in A Soldier's Play (1981) and Hansberry in Les Blancs (1966) also invest these characters with a new significance.

In this paper, I review the impact of the Rome I Regulation (Regulation 593/2008) on contracts concluded by consumers in the financial sphere. The Rome I Regulation has introduced some specific provisions dealing with such contracts - both in the general rule dealing with the law applicable when parties have not chosen the law governing their contract (Art. 4) and in the rule dealing with consumer contracts (art. 6). I attempt to determine what is the scope of these various rules, which contracts are governed by these rules and also and most crucially whether these rules provide the consumer a sufficient level of protection when considered together with other relevant rules (such as rules on cross-border jurisdiction of courts).

Introduction. Une voie de recherche neurologique importante concerne la capacité de prédire sur base de l’évaluation initiale des patients avec Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) ceux qui vont développer une maladie d’Alzheimer (MA). Parmi les tests neuropsychologiques, le rappel indicé avec indiçage congruent lors de l’encodage et du rappel (RI48) apparaît comme le meilleur prédicteur du devenir des patients MCI (Ivanoiu et al., 2005). D’autre part, on a montré que les mesures métaboliques cérébrales (TEP-FDG), plus particulièrement l’hypométabolisme du cortex temporopariétal, prédit le déclin cognitif global dans le MCI mieux que des mesures neuropsychologiques (Chételat et al., 2005). Le but de notre étude était d’évaluer le pouvoir de prédiction pour la conversion du MCI vers une MA de deux prédicteurs robustes (performance au RI48 et métabolisme cérébral) pris soit isolément soit ensemble. Méthode. 50 patients MCI ont subi un examen en TEP-FDG au repos et ont réalisé le test de rappel indicé RI48 et le MMSE. Au terme d’un suivi neuropsychologique de 36 mois, 28 patients ont évolué vers une MA et 22 sont restés stables. Le métabolisme cérébral et les performances cognitives ont été comparés entre « convertisseurs » et MCI-stables. Des analyses discriminantes ont ensuite permis d’évaluer la capacité de classification de l’âge, du MMSE et des mesures métaboliques et mnésiques considérés individuellement ou selon diverses combinaisons. Résultat. Par comparaison avec les MCI-stables, les « convertisseurs » montraient un hypométabolisme du cortex temporal moyen bilatéralement, du cortex pariétal inférieur droit et du précuneus droit, et de plus faibles performances initiales au RI48. Prises individuellement, les différentes mesures permettaient le même taux de classification correcte (métabolisme cérébral = 76%, RI48 = 76%). L’âge et le MMSE étaient de faibles prédicteurs (exactitude de classification = 62% et 66% respectivement). Par contre, la combinaison des mesures métaboliques et des scores au RI48 prédisaient le mieux la progression vers la MA (88%). Conclusion. Les résultats suggèrent que la stratégie optimale pour identifier quels patients MCI ont plus de risque de développer une MA est de combiner les mesures métaboliques cérébrales et la performance à un test de mémoire très sensible.

Le nationalisme, la xénophobie, le racisme et l’antisémitisme, l’opposition aux élites, la stigmatisation des étrangers, les discours anti-immigrés, mais aussi l’autoritarisme, l’idéologie ‘loi et ordre’ (Law and order), l’antiparlementarisme et l’anticommunisme, entre autres traits caractéristiques, représentent quelques-uns des qualificatifs les plus souvent cités dans la littérature consacrée au populisme et à l’extrême droite. En fonction des partis politiques concernés, des contextes institutionnels et des particularités nationales et géographiques, ces qualificatifs prendront une dimension centrale ou secondaire selon qu’il s’agira de caractériser un courant populiste ou un parti d’extrême droite. A l’appui d’une comparaison entre la France et les Etats-Unis, l’ouvrage vise à démontrer que l’ensemble de ces qualificatifs entretiennent tous à des degrés divers un rapport fondamental avec un ‘imaginaire du complot’, c’est-à-dire avec un monde de significations structuré et cohérent (normes, significations, images, symboles, valeurs et croyances) qui privilégie la théorie du complot pour expliquer la politique et l’histoire.

In this paper, an integrated modelling methodology for the assessment of population exposure to air pollution, involving all compartments of the DPSIR-concept, is illustrated by an application in The Netherlands. The application demonstrates the advantages of an activity-based approach by presenting three kinds of applications: the calculation of vehicle emissions, the simulation of pollutant concentration patterns and the assessment of the population exposure to air population. Understanding exposure variations among activities and subpopulations can be very useful for scientific and policy purposes: it can provide information on locations or population groups most at risk, or can indicate where and when the largest exposure values occur.

Ever since car ownership and car use started to increase in Western Europe and the USA, transportation planners attempted to model people’s travel behavior. In the context of the Feathers project a dynamic activity-based travel demand framework is developed for Flanders. In this paper, the complete survey design of the data collection effort required for such dynamic activity-based model is discussed. A mixed survey design of using a PDA application on the one hand, and using traditional paper and pencil diaries on the other hand, turns out to be a very suitable way of collecting detailed information about planned and executed activity-travel behavior of households. The results show that no attrition effects are present, not on the number of out-of-home activities reported, nor on the number of trips reported. Moreover the survey mode (PDA versus paper and pencil) has no direct impact on the quantities investigated. Notwithstanding, it is essential for further analysis on the Feathers data to explicitly take into account mode effects because of two reasons. First, the effect of explanatory variables can be influenced by the survey mode. Second, the variance in the estimation of the quantity investigated can differ significantly. Heteroscedatisc linear regression models provide the required framework to explicitly take into account these mode effects. [less ▲]
