Activity recommendation systems aims at providing relevant information depending on targeted users' groups. For instance in a city, it makes sense to differentiate local residents from tourists. This research investigates to what extent the anonymized data collected from social networks can be used as a basis for making activity recommendations associated with local residents versus tourists when visiting a public place, such as a museum or gallery. Using rules based on the spatial, temporal and semantics of visited places, we are able to infer if a user is likely to be local or a tourist, based on anonymous sample Foursquare data and place-based semantics retrieved using Google Places API. Using semantics of visited places, it becomes possible to infer additional information about a user based on their movements over space and time. Depending on the kind and frequency of visited places, inferences about the aim of a visit to a location are possible. This analysis could provide information to users in the form of recommendations based on their movements while travelling around an area. This study has been performed using Foursquare check-ins for visitors to the Art Institute of Chicago between March 2010 and January 2011. [less ▲]

The direct measurement of loads with force balance can become challenging when the forces are small or when the body is moving. An alternative is the use of Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) velocity fields to indirectly obtain the aerodynamic coefficients. This can be done by the use of control volume approaches which lead to the integration of velocities, and other fields deriving from them, on a contour surrounding the studied body and its supporting surface. This work exposes and discusses results obtained with two different methods: the direct use of the integral formulation of the Navier-Stokes equations and the so-called Noca's method. The latter is a reformulation of the integral Navier-Stokes equations in order to get rid of the pressure. Results obtained using the two methods are compared and the influence of different parameters is discussed. The methods are applied to PIV data obtained from water channel testing for the flow around a 16:1 plate. Two cases are considered: a static plate at high angle of attack and a large amplitude imposed pitching motion. Two-dimensional PIV velocity fields are used to compute the aerodynamic forces. Direct measurements of dynamic loads are also carried out in order to assess the quality of the indirectly calculated coefficients. [less ▲]

La diversité des sources relatives aux horoi – limites, frontières, bornes – dans le monde grec antique est sans doute révélatrice de l'importance de la délimitation et du bornage de la terre aux yeux des anciens Grecs. C'est la retranscription de cet enjeu multiforme – tant symbolique que matériel, politique qu'économique – dans le champ du polythéisme qui fera l'objet de cette présentation. Si l'on se borne aux puissances divines explicitement invoquées comme garantes de ces horoi, on constate qu'au sein d'un ensemble où l'on rencontre Apollon, Athéna, Héra, émerge incontestablement la figure du Zeus Horios. La mise en contexte et en série des données relatives au culte de ce dernier, ainsi que l'examen des logiques théologiques qui les soutiennent et les procédés rituels qui les accompagnent, formeront par conséquent le cœur de cette étude. Au-delà des possibilités d'expérimentation sur le fonctionnement du polythéisme hellénique qu'elle offre, cette étude de cas permettra, on l'espère, d'éclairer la manière grecque d'investir symboliquement la terre, en l'occurrence de justifier sur le plan religieux les délimitations appliquées à celle-ci.

Coptic, as it comes down to us in written texts, is massively influenced by Greek in the domain of lexicon. The Leipzig-Berlin Dictionary and Database of Greek Loanwords in Coptic project has already recorded c. 5000 loan word types and c. 60.000 loan word tokens. On this basis, linguists, philologists, and historians often make assumptions about the nature and extent of bilingualism. Some linguists have even proposed that Coptic is a case of ‘code-mixing’ of Egyptian and Greek, which assumes extensive bilingualism among Egyptians in Late Antiquity. In this paper, we tackle this question from another angle, by determining the extent to which Greek influenced Coptic in terms of its *basic vocabulary*. It may be that we can learn more about bilingualism in Late Antique Egypt this way, since overall lexical borrowing need not correlate with lexical borrowing in the domain of basic vocabulary. As a (significant) side effect of this study, we can also describe the rate of replacement of basic vocabulary in Egyptian-Coptic across its 4000 years of attestation, as well as the semantic domains and periods in which lexical replacement was faster or slower.

French-speaking Belgian opinion on Nazi Germany can be seen through multiple lenses and very different focuses. We will analyze the main Catholic intellectual periodicals published between 1933 and 1939, explaining our selection by a description of the weight of political Catholicism in the interbellum (("La Revue Générale", "La Revue Belge", "La Revue Catholique des Idées et des Faits", "La Cité Chrétienne", "La Terre Wallonne", "La Revue de l'Ordre Corporatif"). After reading six years of rather copious and often verbose articles, can we summarize and better define themes in their approach of Nazism? Are the articles studies in depth or are they merely floating on the surface, in spite of the amount of printed space occupied by them? Was Nazism seen as a new phenomenon, a form of New Order, or simply as a mere link in a continuous German history? Why is Hitler’s regime seen as perpetuating the Prussian State (and “Prussian” state of mind) or frowned upon as a conquering mystical or religious force applied to political expansion such as Islam had been? Which place is given to racist and völkisch views, to their contradiction with Christian ideals, to antisemitism? To which extent was Nazism rational or irrational, using empiricism or applying a spirit of system? Were the writers of 1933-1939 taking into account the social and economic reforms, the “progresses” accomplished, were they paying more than lip-service to the communitarian spirit of Volksgemeinschaft?

Objectif Les tests isocinétiques contribuent régulièrement à l'évaluation de la performance musculaire et en sont considérés comme un gold standard [1]. Les tests de fatigabilité peuvent s'avérer complémentaires des épreuves courtes de force notamment pour évaluer un athlète sollicitant particulièrement la filière anaérobie lactique ou dans des contextes pathologiques spécifiques [2]. Bien que Bosquet et al. [3] aient démontré la reproductibilité d'un protocole de fatigabilité pour le genou, à notre connaissance, aucune étude, ayant pour objectif d'être exhaustive dans son analyse, n'a été menée sur la reproductibilité des paramètres mesurés (meilleure répétition, cumuls total et partiels) et index de fatigue (quotient des n dernières répétitions par les x premières, du cumul des répétitions par la meilleure,…). Ces index et paramètres mesurés sont néanmoins proposés directement par les dynamomètres, sans en connaître systématiquement la méthode de calcul, et/ou utilisés en clinique et dans la littérature pour caractériser la fatigabilité musculaire du genou [4]. Sont-ils cependant suffisamment reproductibles pour que leur utilisation soit scientifiquement validée? Matériel & méthode Dix-huit sujets, modérément actifs, ont réalisé trente extensions-flexions maximales du genou à trois occasions, avec sept à dix jours de repos entre chaque session. Le moment de force maximum (MFM) et le travail maximal (Wmax) de chaque répétition ont été enregistrés pour compiler onze paramètres mesurés et construire quarante-quatre index. La reproductibilité de chaque paramètre et index a été évaluée via leur ICC (2,1), SEM et MD respectifs. Résultats Les valeurs d'ICC des paramètres mesurés pour les extenseurs du genou sont quasi-systématiquement supérieures à 0.8 tandis que celles pour les fléchisseurs oscillent entre 0.7 et 0.8. Les valeurs d'ICC pour les "index de fatigue" construits sont inférieures à 0.7 et 0.5 respectivement pour les extenseurs et fléchisseurs. Aucune différence notable n'est observée entre la reproductibilité du MFM et celle du Wmax (que ce soit pour les extenseurs ou les fléchisseurs ou pour les paramètres mesurés et les "index de fatigue"). Discussion Au vu des valeurs obtenues sur notre population, il apparait qu'aucun index de fatigue calculé ne semble suffisamment reproductible pour une utilisation clinique ou scientifique! Seuls les paramètres mesurés tels que la meilleure répétition, le cumul total ou partiel présentent une reproductibilité qui peut être qualifiée de (très) haute voire excellente et sont donc utilisables en clinique ou en recherche pour caractériser la fatigabilité musculaire du genou.
