The aim of this work was to measure the effect of supplementation with bovine colostrum among newborn Red goats breastfed in breeding conditions for semi-intensive type of Niger. The study was conducted in Secondary Goat Breeding Center of Maradi (SGBCM). Forty newborn kids, regardless of sexe, were divided randomly into two groups: a "T-Control " group receiving only breast milk per feeding (n = 20) and a "C-Colostrum" group having the same diet but supplemented with bovine colostrum thawed (50 ml the first day of life, then 25 ml in 2 meals/ day between the ages of 2 and 15d, n = 20). The results indicate that supplementation with bovine colostrum in the first 15 days of life, increases the growth of kids until weaning (P<0.001), modifie some barymetric changes some settings improves health status and reduces the mortality rate. To our knowledge, in the studied environment, this work is original and seems to bring new knowledges likely to have practical applications in areas with farming conditions quite difficult. [less ▲]

Nanocrystalline celluloses (NCCs) were separated from four commercial microcrystalline celluloses (MCCs) by an acid hydrolysis–sonication treatment. Transmission electron microscopy (TEM), atomic force microscopy (AFM), Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectrum, X-ray di®raction (XRD) and thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) were conducted to investigate the NCCs. MCCs with di®erent morphologies and particle sizes showed di®erent aggregation degrees. The aggregation of MCCs followed the order MCC1 > MCC3 > MCC2 > MCC4, which is the same order of the heights of the resulting NCCs. The best uniformity and thermal stability were characterized for NCC3, which was produced by MCC3 with smallest original particle size and good dispersity among the four MCCs. This result suggests that both the original particle size and dispersity of MCCs had signi¯cant e®ects on separated NCCs. [less ▲]

Les référentiels de compétences promus par l'ARES, le décret « paysage », ses unités d’apprentissage et ses trajectoires flexibles sont autant de changements qui questionnent aujourd’hui les équipes éducatives. Comment se rendre compte que l’on évalue bien des compétences et non des acquis d’apprentissage plus morcelés ? Comment évaluer la complexité sans risque d’une trop large subjectivité ? Comment rendre l’évaluation plus collégiale, en cohérence avec la notion d’unités d’apprentissage ? L’exposé proposera un cadre théorique, identifiera quelques enjeux majeurs pour les enseignants et ébauchera, en les illustrant, quelques réponses possibles à ces défis. [less ▲]

Chlorophyll is a photosynthetic pigment available abundantly in microalgae and terrestrial plants. This pigment found applications in pharmaceutical, cosmetic and food products as a wound healing, antioxidant or coloring agent. Recent reports suggest that chlorophyll can also be used as a biomordant to enhance the dyeing process of textile products, but also as a textile dye with antimicrobial properties. In this presentation, different aspects of chlorophyll production are discussed. Firstly, numerous plant biomass types as potential sources of chlorophyll are presented. Subsequently, different methods for chlorophyll extraction and separation from plant biomass are described. Finally, possibilities of chlorophyll implementation into textile products on industrial scale are evaluated. [less ▲]
