L’« Observation relative au poème UN COUP DE DÉS JAMAIS N’ABOLIRA LE HASARD », rédigée expressément à la demande de la rédaction de la revue Cosmopolis qui en avait procuré l’édition originale sous une première forme, est depuis lors, assez improprement, considérée et lue comme une « préface » au Coup de dés dans sa version définitive. Émanant d’un poète ayant marqué plus d’une fois la vive défiance que lui inspirait le geste de la préface, elle doit plutôt être lue, tout d’abord, comme un texte de circonstance imposé par des contingences éditoriales et comme un commentaire visant à assurer la lisibilité d’un texte monstre en le rabattant sur des codes reçus. Examinée sous l’angle de sa construction et de son dispositif d’énonciation, cette « Observation » tient sans doute moins, en outre, d’une préface apportée après coup à un « poème » que d’un manifeste esthétique faisant « observer » et se lever, à l’horizon du texte, l’émergence d’un genre poétique sans précédent.

Extrait de l'introduction générale au volume : « La fortune journalistique de l’appellation “nouveaux réactionnaires” doit très certainement beaucoup au paradigme dont elle relève, qui met le collectif ainsi désigné en balance avec d’autres courants littéraires, intellectuels et politiques agrégés de même, depuis près d’un demi-siècle, sous l’invocation de la nouveauté : “nouveaux romanciers” des années 1950-1960, “nouvelle critique” des années 1960-1970, “nouveaux philosophes” et “nouvelle droite” des années 1970-1980. Il va sans dire que cette appellation, produit d’une construction éditoriale à haute intensité polémique, et productrice elle-même de puissants effets de construction, oppose à toute analyse du phénomène social et idéologique qu’elle entend recouvrir les obstacles qu’installent en règle très générale les objets qui semblent s’offrir spontanément à l’appréhension. C’est pourquoi – et en raison même des effets produits par cette pré-construction, et aussi du caractère de plus en plus saillant et donc banal de thèmes qui, depuis 2002, sont devenus des lieux communs du débat public –, les contributions rassemblées dans le présent volume ont été organisées de façon à répondre à un triple effort de construction raisonnée de l’objet : construction généalogique et morphologique d’abord ; construction thématique et discursive ensuite ; construction métalittéraire enfin, dans la mesure où, comme on le verra, le débat autour des « néo-réactionnaires » et les débats qu’alimentent volontiers ceux qui sont ainsi visés, à tort ou à raison, s’inscrivent dans une tradition très française de la littérature ou des prétentions à l’éthos littéraire. » [less ▲]

The allyl phosphoester group is shown to be a protecting group for the synthesis of anionic polyphosphodiesters. Our strategy relies on the synthesis of a cyclic phosphate monomer bearing a pendant allyl phosphoester group, its easy purification by fractional distillation, its organocatalyzed ring-opening polymerization by 1,8-diazobicyclo[5.4.0]undec-7-ene (DBU) and 1-[3,5-bis(trifluoromethyl)phenyl]-3-cyclohexyl-thiourea (TU). Finally, the deprotection of the allyl phosphoester group is carried out by reaction with sodium benzenethiolate in the absence of any detectable degradation. [less ▲]

The LHCb collaboration has recently reported on some anomalies in b→s transitions. In addition to discrepancies with the Standard Model (SM) predictions in some angular observables and branching ratios, an intriguing hint for lepton universality violation was found. Here we propose a simple model that extends the SM with a dark sector charged under an additional U(1) gauge symmetry. The spontaneous breaking of this symmetry gives rise to a massive Z′ boson, which communicates the SM particles with a valid dark matter candidate, while solving the b→s anomalies with contributions to the relevant observables.

L’ambition de cet article est double : explorer les vertus de l’utilisation d’un logiciel d’analyse qualitative dans le cadre d’un travail interdisciplinaire sur la flexicurité, et réaliser une revue de littérature transversale à partir des problématiques concrètes que ce concept cristallise dans le vécu des travailleurs. La flexicurité constitue un oxymore qui prône la recherche d’un équilibre entre besoins de flexibilité et de sécurité sur le marché du travail. Cet équilibre est avant tout un objectif politique, mais il reste fragile aux yeux des acteurs concernés. En cherchant à croiser le regard analytique de trois disciplines – psychologie, gestion et sociologie –, nous avons recouru au logiciel Cassandre (Lejeune, 2008) pour dégager des tensions discursives autour des notions de flexibilité et de sécurité dans un corpus de vingt entretiens qualitatifs. L’article permet ainsi de concrétiser l’intérêt et les limites de l’utilisation d’un logiciel d’analyse qualitative dans le cadre d’un travail interdisciplinaire. [less ▲]

Défiés par cette immersion dans les tréfonds du modèle, nous avons choisi de nous accrocher aux fondements de notre univers. La mythologie grecque sera donc notre source d’inspiration en mettant un dieu antique à notre disposition. Chronos sera notre guide dans un périple réflexif soumettant nos théories et notre pratique à l’épreuve du temps. Le récit de la conception d’un atelier thérapeutique, l’atelier « Art & Temps », sera notre fil d’Ariane dans notre tentative de symboliser notre pratique thérapeutique quotidienne et ses enjeux. Par la suite, l’exposé d’un cas clinique concrétisera un raisonnement théorique visant à situer notre modèle de prise en charge dans le réseau psychiatrique global. [less ▲]

Summary This study examines people’s and public actors’s perception of traditional healers in Kisenso, and their potential integration into the health system. The findings of this study are based on focus groups conducted in 2013. According to the key results of this study, 100% of participants acknowledge the existence of traditional practitioners and all have used them. 80% found the care provided by these healers to be effective. However, the study participants found them to be lacking in hygiene in their handling of products. The use of traditional healers is justified in particular by the effectiveness of care, the type of illness suffered, the possibility of credit payment and their proximity. Public actors recognize both the existence of traditional healers and their effectiveness. They deplore their clandestine operation. Traditional healers claiming to be GPs (60%) and specialists (40%) say they work illegally because of the cost of administrative acts and their mistrust of intellectuals and biomedical practitioners. They complain about the insolvency of their patients who do not honor their commitments. For an effective integration of traditional healers in the health system, it would be useful to remove administrative barriers imposed on them for a balance between ancestral legitimacy and illegality in which they work, give them access to training, accept them as full participants in the health system, and explore the possibilities of contracting.

Efficient delineation of conservation areas is a great challenge in maintaining biodiversity. Kernel density estimators (KDEs) are a powerful tool in this perspective, but they have not been applied at the population level on patch-distributed organisms. This would be particularly worthy for species that need broad habitats beyond those where they can be sampled; such as terrestrial lands for pond-breeding amphibians. The aim of this study was to compare different approaches for the identification of suitable areas for conservation: KDE, ecological niche modelling, and a combination of KDE and niche models. Paedomorphosis was chosen as a model system because this is an important form of intraspecific variation that is present in numerous taxa, but geographically localized within species and globally endangered. 277 ponds were sampled in one of the hotspots of paedomorphosis to determine the abundance and distribution of paedomorphs (i.e. individuals retaining gills at the adult stage) of the palmate newt (Lissotriton helveticus), with emphasis on the connections between the most valuable populations. KDEs gave insights into the surface areas required to balance the maintenance of certain number of connected ponds and the respective number of disjoint areas in which the whole population is divided. The inclusion of barriers in the models helped in accurately designing the limits of the areas to protect. Alone, habitat models were not able to successfully delineate the area to protect, but the integration between terrestrial suitable areas or barriers and KDE allowed an objective identification of areas required for conservation. Overall, the best performance was observed by the KDE integrating ecological barriers, and by the combination between KDE and niche modelling. In a broader perspective, KDEs are thus a pertinent tool in providing quantitative spatial measurements to delineate conservation areas based on patch-abundance data with a specific focus to connectivity.

This work is based on a long time series of data collected in the well-preserved Bay of Calvi (Corsica island, Ligurian Sea, NW Mediterranean) between 1979 and 2011, which include physical characteristics (31 years), chlorophyll a (chl a, 15 years), and inorganic nutrients (13 years). Because samples were collected at relatively high frequencies, which ranged from daily to biweekly during the winter-spring period, it was possible to (1) evidence the key role of two interacting physical variables, i.e. water temperature and wind intensity, on nutrient replenishment and phytoplankton dynamics during the winter-spring period, (2) determine critical values of physical factors that explained interannual variability in the replenishment of surface nutrients and the winter-spring phytoplankton bloom, and (3) identify previously unrecognized characteristics of the planktonic ecosystem. Over the >30 year observation period, the main driver of nutrient replenishment and phytoplankton (chl a) development was the number of wind events (mean daily wind speed >5 m s-1) during the cold-water period (subsurface water ≤13.5°C). According to winter intensity, there were strong differences in both the duration and intensity of nutrient fertilization and phytoplankton blooms (chl a). The trophic character of the Bay of Calvi changed according to years, and ranged from very oligotrophic (i.e. subtropical regime, characterized by low seasonal variability) to mesotrophic (i.e. temperate regime, with a well-marked increase in nutrient concentrations and chl a during the winter-spring period) during mild and moderate winters, respectively. A third regime occurred during severe winters characterized by specific wind conditions (i.e. high frequency of northeasterly winds), when Mediterranean “high nutrient - low chlorophyll” conditions occurred as a result of enhanced cross-shore exchanges and associated offshore export of the nutrient-rich water. There was no long-term trend (e.g. climatic) in either nutrient replenishment or the winter-spring phytoplankton bloom between 1979 and 2011, but both nutrients and chl a reflected interannual and decadal changes in winter intensity.

n the past few decades, various nanovehicles have been developed as drug delivery systems, in which inorganic and organic components are integrated within a nano-object. Upon the application of remote stimuli, e.g. alternating magnetic field, near infrared or ultrasound radiations, the release of guest molecules can be triggered in a quite controlled manner. Herein, we review different hybrid nanostructures which have already been reported for the remotely triggered release, such as those based on (1) host–guest conjugates, (2) core–corona nanoparticles, (3) polymer nanogels, (4) polymer micelles, (5) liposomes, (6) mesoporous silica particles and (7) hollow nanoparticles. Moreover, we also summarize six underlying mechanisms that govern such a kind of remotely triggered release behaviours: (1) enhanced diffusion and/or permeation, (2) thermo- or photo-labile bond cleavage, (3) fusion of phase-changed materials, (4) photo-induced isomerisation, (5) thermo-induced swelling/de-swelling of thermo-responsive polymers, and (6) destruction of the nanostructures. The ways in which different components are incorporated into an integrated hybrid nanostructure and how they contribute to the remotely triggered release behaviours are detailed. [less ▲]

The aim of this chapter is to investigate diaphasic variation in the texts written by the Deir el-Medina scribe Amennakhte son of Ipuy in New Kingdom Egypt (ca. 1150 BCE) by analysing the graphemic and linguistic features of the registers used by this individual when writing texts belonging to different genres. The registers are conceived here as selections operating within the scribal repertoire. At an empirical level, this study is intended as a first step towards a comprehensive description of the types of linguistic variation found within the written production of the Deir el-Medina community in New Kingdom Egypt (ca. 1500–1050 BCE). At a more methodological level, as a case study testing the applicability of some historical sociolinguistic methods in the field of Ancient Egyptian, which could ultimately result in refining our approach to its diachrony.
