Le droit des étrangers connaît des développements incessants : les réformes du cadre législatif belge se succèdent à une cadence accélérée, l'Union européenne investit le champ en imposant diverses obligations aux Etats membres, qui touchent aujourd'hui la quasi-totalité des questions posées par le séjour des étrangers. A ces nouveautés législatives se conjugent une influence croissante de la Cour européenne des droits de l'homme dont le contentieux constitue de plus en plus souvent un dernier recours pour l'étranger. Le présent ouvrage a comme ambition de donner aux praticiens quelques clés de lecture de ce droit aux contours sans cesse renouvellés. Pour ce faire, il débute par un panorama général, sous forme de guide pratique, des principes généraux qui structurent le droit de l'entrée et du séjour sur le territoire belge. Après cette introduction dont l'objectif est de permettre de bien comprendre les différents 'entrées' possibles sur le territoire belge, les auteurs, tous spécialistes des questions qu'ils analysent, abordent quelques uns des status les plus importants qui permettent aux étrangers de séjourner sur le territoire belge. Ces statuts font l'objet d'un éclairage qui met l'accent tant sur les nouveautés que sur les difficultés les plus récurrentes rencontrées en pratique. La récente réforme qui a modifié en profondeur les règles d'acquisition de la nationalité belge fait également l'objet d'un commentaire approfondi. Les différentes contributions s'attachent à préciser les contours d'une jurisprudence et d'une pratique mouvante, tout en dévoilant les enjeux concrets et en esquissant des réponses aux questions que la pratique devra affronter prochainement.

This study was conducted as part of a research project on meat conservability, in particular vacuum packaged beef displaying very long shelf lives at a temperature close to the freezing point, and its objective was to perform a morphological and functional characterization of C. maltaromaticum with potential bioprotective effect isolated from vacuum packaged long shelf life beef. The isolated C. maltaromaticum strain presented similar morphological, biochemical and enzymatic profiles as those of two reference strains (LMG 11393 and LMG 22902). Among the studied conditions, a temperature of +12 °C and an atmosphere poor in oxygen (100 % N2) were the optimal conditions for the growth of C. maltaromaticum. Nevertheless, growth on lower temperatures is also possible. After inoculation of beef samples with C. maltaromaticum and 7 days of storage under vacuum at −1 °C, no effect was observed on the total viable count and on the count of lactic acid bacteria. A reduction of Pseudomonas sp. and Brochothrix thermosphacta was observed during the first week of storage under vacuum conditions. After 7 days of subsequent storage of the same samples under modified atmosphere at +4 °C, the inoculant favored the growth of B. thermosphacta and inhibited the growth of Enterobacteriaceae under 100 % N2. No effect of the inoculant was observed when an atmosphere rich in oxygen was applied. The evaluation of the influence of different atmospheres showed that the growth of C. maltaromaticum was slower in an atmosphere containing O2 and CO2. Long-term storage under vacuum at low temperatures are therefore suitable for the growth of this bacterium. An antimicrobial effect against Enterobacteriaceae was highlighted on inoculated fresh meat stored under N2. The functional characterization of this strain will be further pursued by genotypic characterization. Special attention will be taken to study its bioprotective properties. [less ▲]

Traditional foods play a major role in the diet of rural people living in the Tibet Autonomous Region of the People's Republic of China. Because these foods are mainly derived from local agriculture as well as artisanal production, their mineral composition may show significant discrepancies when compared with food composition data. This study aims at providing relevant data on the mineral composition of the main Tibetan foods. Sixteen different foodstuffs were sampled, including water, concentrated brewed black tea, chang, tsampa, wheat flour, dried cheese, dried yak meat, dried mutton, blood sausage, dried wild peaches, dried Chinese radish, and dried nettles. They were analyzed by inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) for 19 minerals: Na, K, P, Ca, Mg, Fe, Zn, Mn, Cu, Ni, Se, Mo, Al, As, Cr, Co, Cd, Pb, and V. The validity of the results was ensured by the use of standard reference materials. A statistical comparison of the mean mineral contents of the analyzed foods against food composition data from the China Food Composition (CFC) table was carried out. It revealed significant discrepancies, emphasizing the importance of food analysis for nutritional assessment in Tibet autonomous region. To the best of our knowledge, the mineral compositions of some traditional Tibetan foods are here reported for the first time. [less ▲]

The practice of “incident reporting” is commonly recognized as an effective mean to reduce the vulnerability of “at risk” socio-technical systems (e.g. nuclear plants, large industrial facilities or hospitals), as it allow the concerned community to learn from past incidents. Indeed, it is assumed that collective resilience will be upgraded via the use of institutionalized Incident Reporting System (IRS), enabling the organization to improve the quality of the actions and reactions in case of deviation from normality, or to prevent such deviation. Yet, inductive analysis of what happens with those IRS in practice are not numerous. In this paper, we address this gap and display the results of semi-structured interviews conducted in a nuclear facility. During those interviews, participants were also requested to produce a mind map of the IRS they are concerned with. As a result, we show that safety is a matter of solidarities that are situated in specific contexts. To that regard, incident reporting is a practice of decomposition and recomposition of trusts and thus of solidarities. Reporting incidents consists in putting solidarity on trial, as the collective safety was threatened. We show that such open trial is often avoided because questioning solidarities is not always desirable in order to allow the group to continue functioning. Overall, we argue that informal reporting behaviors can also contribute to upgrade collective resilience without putting solidarities on trial. [less ▲]

Medications often partially alleviate the symptoms of RLS patients, emphasizing the need for finding alternative treatments. Recent studies reported an efficacy of bright light therapy (BLT) in Parkinson disease. RLS pathogenesis involves the dopaminergic system and light has been shown to influence the dopaminergic tone. Therefore, the objective of our study was to determine the therapeutic value of three weeks of BLT on RLS symptoms severity, sleep quality, daytime somnolence, circadian rhythms and mood. [less ▲]

During the two last decades, the Greenland ice sheet (GrIs) contribution to the global mean sea level (GMSL) rise has significantly increased. In the future, difficulties remain to assess the GrIs contribution to GMSL rise because of large uncertainties linked to the feedback between the surface mass balance (SMB) and the elevation of the GrIs. In 2013, Xavier Fettweis, my promoter, has coupled a regional climate model (RCM), the model MAR, with an ice sheet model (ISM), the model GRISLI, in order to account of this feedback and, in this way, to improve the assessment of the future GrIs contribution to the GMSL rise. The aim of this study is to assess the pertinence of the MAR−GRISLI coupling which requires long computation time. Nine imulations were carried out with GRISLI. Six of these simulations consisted in forcing GRISLI with several present days MAR outputs (SMB and surface temperature) in order to identify the GRISLI biases. The three last simulations consisted in forcing GRISLI until 2100 with future non-coupled, coupled and modified non- coupled MAR outputs in order to find a technique to avoid the coupling. The results show that initial conditions need to be improved and that the ice flow velocities required recalibration because an abnormal present-day thickening of the GrIs margins. Ice calving only depends on ice sheet extension because of constant ice flow velocities. The MAR−GRISLI coupling can be avoided until the middle of the 2080s. Beyond these years, the SMB correction is too large so that the thinning of the GrIs margins is overestimated. In a further study, the SMB correction could be reduced to avoid the MAR−GRISLI coupling over longer periods. GRISLI could be improved or replaced by a more complex ISM with dynamic ice flow velocities to enhance the results. [less ▲]

In this talk, I presented a joint work with Juha Honkala. We study the freeness problem for matrix semigroups. We show that the freeness problem is decidable for upper-triangular 2x2 matrices with rational entries when the products are restricted to certain bounded languages. We also show that this problem becomes undecidable for large enough matrices. [less ▲]
