One of the main consequences of the Roman conquest was the diffusion of the Latin language and of Roman culture throughout the conquered countries. According to many texts of the imperial period, Latin became a universal language during the Imperium Romanum. But what is the reality? Did Rome develop any linguistic policies? There is some evidence to show that Rome’s response regarding the sociolinguistic problems that arose under its rule was to be flexible and willing to adapt to the specific requirements of each situation. Under the Republic and the early Principate, there was, in fact, a great flexibility in language use by the Romans in their dealings with the Greek world. Even though Latin-Greek bilingualism was widespread among the Romans of the Republic and the early Principate, in the public context, Latin maintained a high-level role because it represented the language of Rome’s power. In spite of this flexible approach to language use, a natural competition developed between the language of the dominant and the language of the dominated. In the Occident, Latin became the only vehicle of communication, both oral and written, whereas in the Orient, one notes a paradoxical situation: the Hellenization of the Romans due to the high cultural position of the Greek language. However, this dichotomy did not produce a division of the Roman Empire into two impenetrable parts, closed to mutual linguistic and cultural influences, but rather, it generated a more complicated situation, especially in the Oriental part of the Empire. It is this situation that will be analyzed in the present paper. [less ▲]

The study proposes a comparative analysis of the French-language and Flemish/Dutch versions of the international ballad deriving from the Danish 'Moderen under Mulde' (Dgf 89), and on this basis identifies three French-language texts recorded in North-east France and Wallonia yet showing closer affinities to the neighbouring Flemish tradition. In the light of both textual traditions, their unilateral adoption of Flemish motifs and their enhancing effect suggests deliberate selection rather than mere geographical proximity or bilingualism as explanation for their hybridization.

This paper reviews the state-of-the-art methods to perform structural optimization of flexible mechanisms. These methods are based on a system-based approach, i.e. the formulation of the design problem incorporates the time response of the mechanism that is obtained from a dynamic simulation of the flexible multibody system. The system-based approach aims at considering as precisely as possible the effects of nonlinear dynamic loading under various operating conditions. Also, the optimization process enhances most existing studies which are limited to (quasi-) static or frequency domain loading conditions. This paper briefly introduces flexible multibody system dynamics and structural optimization techniques. Afterwards, the two main methods, named the weakly and the fully coupled methods, that couple both disciplines are presented in details and the influence of the multibody system formalism is analyzed. The advantages and drawbacks of both methods are discussed and future possible research areas are mentioned. [less ▲]

Background: Clinical and experimental evidence support a role for inflammation in the development of colorectal cancer, though the mechanisms are not fully understood. Beyond thrombosis and hemostasis, platelets are key actors of inflammation; they also have been involved in cancer. However, whether platelets participate in the link between inflammation and cancer is unknown. Objective: To investigate the contribution of platelets and platelet-derived proteins to inflammation-elicited colorectal tumor development. Methods: We used a clinically relevant mouse model of colitis-associated cancer. Platelet secretion and their reactivity to thrombin were assessed at each stage of carcinogenesis. We conducted an unbiased proteomic analysis of releasates of platelets isolated at pre-tumoral stage to identify soluble factors that might act on tumor development. Plasma levels of the identified proteins were measured during the course of carcinogenesis. We then treated the mice with clopidogrel to efficiently inhibit platelet release reaction. Results: At pre-tumoral stage, hyperactive platelets were a major source of circulating pro-tumoral serum amyloid A (SAA) proteins. Clopidogrel prevented the early elevation of plasma SAA, decreased colitis severity, and delayed the formation of dysplastic lesions and adenocarcinoma. Platelet inhibition hindered the expansion and function of immunosuppressive myeloid cells as well as their infiltration in tumors, while tissue CD8 T cells were augmented. Platelets or releasates of platelets from cancer mice both were able to polarize myeloid cells toward an immunosuppressive phenotype. Conclusions: Thus, platelets promote initiation of colitis-associated cancer by enhancing myeloid cell dependent immunosuppression. Antiplatelet agents may help prevent inflammation-elicited carcinogenesis by restoring antitumor immunity. [less ▲]

A small number of autographs are attested among the Greek literary papyri dating from the IV/III centuries BC to the VI/VII centuries AD. They can be found in the form of papyrus rolls, papyrus slips, papyrus or parchment codices or even wooden tablets. According to research by A. Petrucci and T. Dorandi, evidence from the material and the format of the piece, from the layout of the text and its writing, from the state of the text and from the literary genre allow for the identification of autographs. The present paper will briefly review the about 50 Greek literary papyri considered to be autographs. Special attention will be paid to a recently edited II-century medical papyrus (P.Oxy. 74.4970), which seems to present the characteristics of an autograph. [less ▲]

Northern Morocco has an important local ceramic industry. Twenty-three Craterous and Pliocene clays from Tangier area (Northern Morocco) were studied to test their suitability as raw material for fired brick production. To assess their behaviour, the chemical composition, specific surface area (SSA), cation exchange capacity (CEC), and apparent density of clays were determined. The chemical composition consisted mainly of SiO2 (32 – 60%), Al2O3 (7 – 30%), and CaO (0.5 – 32%). SSA and CEC values of all the samples were low. The apparent density, pore volume, and micropore values were almost similar. Clay bricks were prepared by forming and shaping, and then fired in the range of 800 – 1100°C. Firing shrinkage, loss on mass and water absorption capacity were done in order to characterize clays after firing. Most of the clay samples have the necessary properties for the manufacturing of brick products. However, some clay samples were above the norm of loss on weight, due mainly to their high amount of carbonates. Furthermore, some kaolinitic samples from Pliocene blue marls and Cretaceous marls are inappropriate for building-related brick fabrication, because of the development of portlandite in brick, when in contact with moisture of the air. However, it will be necessary to mix them with other clays with little or no carbonate to dilute their carbonates content and then enhance their workability. [less ▲]
