Based on graphemic, morphological, syntactic, and semantic evidence, the paper shows that a clear-cut distinction can be made between a verb ib expressing an epistemic judgment (“to think”) and a non-verbal predicative construction ib=f r sDm (literally “his heart is towards hearing”), expressing volition (“to want”). In a second step, the volitional construction ib=f r sDm is shown to occasionally display features of syntactic gradience, reflecting its quasi-verbal semantics (“volitive agent-oriented moda-lity”): in particular, this construction can combine with a marker of passive voice, a verbal category that is otherwise alien to non-verbal constructions. Problematic late occurrences of the construction ib=f r sDm are discussed in turn: in some of these, ib=f may have been subjected to alternative construals as a verb. [less ▲]

The UNESCO Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions (CDCE) was adopted in 2005 and designed to allow States to protect and promote cultural policies. This book examines the effectiveness of the CDCE and offers ways by which its implementation may be improved to better attain its objectives. The book provides insight in how the normative character of the CDCE may be strengthened through implementation and increasingly recurrent practice based on its provisions. Hailing from various fields of international law, political and social sciences, the book’s contributors work to promote discussions on the practical and legal influence of the CDCE, and to identify opportunities and recommendations for a more effective application. Part One of the book assesses the effectiveness of the CDCE in influencing other areas of international law and the work conducted by other intergovernmental organizations through the recognition of the double nature (cultural and economic) of cultural goods and services. Part Two focuses on the practice of the CDCE beyond the recognition of the specificity of cultural goods and services in international law by addressing the CDCE’s call for greater international cooperation and stronger integration of cultural concerns in development strategies at the national and regional levels. The book will be of great use and interest to academics and practitioners in law, social and political sciences, agents of governmental and international organizations, and cultural sector stakeholders.

Since 1996, Thales Alenia Space Belgium (ETCA) designs, develops and produces Power Processing Unit (PPU) to supply Hall Effect Thrusters: SPT-100 from Fakel and PPS1350-G from Snecma. The first qualification model, developed for the 50V bus Stentor program, has supplied during 8900 hours an SPT-100 thruster in a vacuum chamber simulating space environment. Qualified for the Spacebus 4000 platform, with a 100V regulated bus, the SB4000 PPU and Filter Unit EQM have cumulated 6300 hours ground operation with a PPS1350-G thruster. Twenty three PPU flight models were delivered for the Stentor, Astra-1K, Smart-1, Intelsat, Inmarsat, Eutelsat, Yahsat and DirecTV satellites. In October 2005, the Smart-1 spacecraft reached the Moon after 4958 hours of cumulated operation of the PPU with PPS1350-G thruster. Fourteen PPU’s currently in flight for North South Station Keeping on seven telecom satellites have cumulated more than 24100 hours flight operation. Following the selection of the PPS1350-G as baseline thruster for the AlphaBus platform, the Alphabus PPU was developed and two flight models were delivered for AlphaSat. Launched in July 2013, they have cumulated 350 hours operation. On the SmallGEO platform, one EPTA (Electric Propulsion Thruster Assembly) branch has to drive one out of four SPT-100 thrusters. As the PPU drives one out of two thrusters, TAS-B (ETCA) has developed and qualified an External Thruster Selection Unit (ETSU) to be associated to a PPU. Two flight sets (PPU+ETSU) were delivered for SmallGEO. In order to propose a more competitive product TAS-B (ETCA) has developed the new generation of PPU, called PPU Mk2, dedicated to Hall Effect Thrusters up to 2.5kW. The qualification phase is ending with the Qualification Test Review Board successfully hold in April 2014 and the final Qualification Review planned in June 2014. Twelve PPU Mk2 flight models are already ordered by two customers. In response to the market demand to use Electrical Propulsion for Orbit Raising, TAS-B (ETCA) has started the development of the PPU Mk3 dedicated to 5kW Hall Effect Thrusters. This paper presents an overview of the Power Processing Unit activities at TAS-B (ETCA), including flight heritage, PPU Mk2 qualification and the development of PPU Mk3. [less ▲]

Associer les termes Renseignement et Éthique au sein d'un même propos semble être un oxymore tant le renseignement a une réputation sulfureuse. Pourtant, et il faut le marteler avec insistance : dans un État démocratique les services de renseignement, parce qu'ils tiennent la ligne de front face à des menaces invisibles mais bien réelles, sont au service de l'État de droit, des citoyens et de la démocratie. Toutefois, par delà l'encadrement juridique auquel il est soumis, et à l'instar de la plupart des activités humaines, force est de constater que le renseignement ne manque pas d'interpeller par les dilemmes éthiques qu'il soulève. Le Groupe Européen de Recherches en Éthique et Renseignement (GERER) constitué de praticiens du renseignement et d'universitaires francophones ne cherche pas pour autant à surfer sur le regain d'intérêt pour l'espionnage suscité récemment par l'affaire Snowden, mais s'attache plutôt à combler le retard pris par les pays de culture francophone dans un domaine dont les contours commencent à se figer sur la base d'approches intellectuelles et opérationnelles purement anglosaxonnes. Soucieux de développer une réflexion de fond autour d'un problème crucial pour l'avenir de la démocratie, le présent ouvrage, parce qu'il met en perspective des sujets trop souvent déformés par un traitement médiatique accrocheur, s'adresse tant aux professionnels du renseignement qu'à un public plus large. Au travers d'études de cas, il permet de s'initier aux dilemmes éthiques qui se posent à ces agents de l'État qui exercent un métier hors du commun. (4ème de couv) [less ▲]

Shochat, Chen; Tal, Noa; Gryshkova, Vitalina et al

Gain-of-function somatic mutations introducing cysteines to either the extracellular or to the transmembrane domain (TMD) in interleukin-7 receptor alpha (IL7R) or cytokine receptor-like factor 2 (CRLF2) have been described in acute lymphoblastic leukemias. Here we report noncysteine in-frame mutations in IL7R and CRLF2 located in a region of the TMD closer to the cytosolic domain. Biochemical and functional assays showed that these are activating mutations conferring cytokine-independent growth of progenitor lymphoid cells in vitro and are transforming in vivo. Protein fragment complementation assays suggest that despite the absence of cysteines, the mechanism of activation is through ligand-independent dimerization. Mutagenesis experiments and ConSurf calculations suggest that the mutations stabilize the homodimeric conformation, positioning the cytosolic kinases in predefined orientation to each other, thereby inducing spontaneous receptor activation independently of external signals. Hence, type I cytokine receptors may be activated in leukemia through 2 types of transmembrane somatic dimerizing mutations. [less ▲]

The present work investigates modal identification of time-varying dynamical systems by exploiting the Hilbert transform. The proposed method, initially based on the Hilbert Vibration Decomposition (HVD) method, first identifies the instantaneous frequencies of the system. Their corresponding components and modal deflection shapes are then extracted from a set of dynamic responses of the system. The proposed method is first presented and then is illustrated on an experimental set-up. The system under investigation is a recurrent experiment in the field of time-varying systems consisting in a beam travelled by a non-negligible mass while excited by a random external force. The results highlight the time dependency of the modal parameters of the system due to the variant position of the mass with time. [less ▲]

This paper deals with a PhD project on domestic architecture and society on the Syrian Euphrates region and in the Jezirah during the Bronze Age. The large geographical and chronological framework allowed to collect an important corpus of houses. The analysis of statistical data on their different features allowed interpretations, in particular concerning their functionnal characteristics. The attention is here focused on the crafts and industrial production of the house inhabitants. The contemporary economic system is well known in Southern Mesopotamia, and was there mainly based on official oikoi linked to the temples or to the palace. On the contrary, the analysis of Northern Mesopotamian evidence shows that the economic system in this area was mainly based on private households, the state control probably being there of lesser importance.

Throughout the world, livestock plays an important role in socio-economic life and dietary balance of the population especially in the Sahel and West Africa countries characterized by extensive pastoral farming. Across the literature, this activity appears to be subjected to various controversies including its contribution to the degradation of the environment; greenhouse gas emissions; its low economic performance; etc. This article attempts to state the debate through a literature review showing the importance of pastoral livestock in the economics of the Sahel and West Africa countries as well as in household alimentation and the fight against poverty. Also, it noticed the importance and efficiency of pastoral practice in a precariously natural environment such as the Sahel area [less ▲]

Terqa, an important Syrian Bronze Age site located in the Lower Middle-Euphrates region, benefited from a key position which provided the settlement with the opportunity to gain from exchanges and innovations arriving from both the North and South, while developing its own identity and culture. A new study on pottery has just been carried out on 3rd-millennium material from eight excavation seasons. The recovered material has been used to specify Terqa’s chronostratigraphy with greater accuracy, comparing it with the neighboring site of Mari and other contemporary ones but also providing us with a preliminary overview of Terqa’s ceramic culture during the Early Bronze Age.
