Whereas the exchanges between Francis I and Italy have attracted much attention, the King’s relations with the old Southern Netherlands, as rich and complex, have not been carefully studied. The book "Francis I and Artists of the North (1515-1547)" aims to fill this gap by considering the interest of the King of France - in artists and musicians from the old Southern Netherlands and their works.

En 1527, alors que François Ier entame la rénovation architecturale et décorative du château de Fontainebleau, l’assimilation du prince avec Jules César est devenu un topos du discours royal. Inévitablement, un tel imaginaire imprègne l’aménagement du château de Fontainebleau. On le retrouve dans la galerie François Ier mais aussi dans l'appartement des bains, un ensemble que le roi et le cercle de lettrés et d’érudits qui l’entoure imaginèrent sur le modèle des thermes de la Rome impériale. Cette contribution propose une confrontation entre la suite bellifontaine et les infrastructures antiques, mais aussi quelques installations contemporaines, et ce dans le but de préciser l’originalité des bains de François Ier.

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Chronic rhinosinusitis with and without nasal polyps is a common disease affecting people all over the world. Functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS) has become the gold standard treatment for medically refractive disease. Postoperative care is recommended by international leaders as an important part of the patient's management. This article is a critical review and discussion focusing on postoperative care, which is based on expert opinion, clinical studies, randomized controlled trials and meta-analysis studies. RECENT FINDINGS: Postoperative care including nasal rinsing, topical corticosteroids, antibiotics and avoidance of nasal packing are unanimously considered to be the cornerstone of best practice following FESS. However, the effectiveness of in-office nasal debridement is still under debate. SUMMARY: There is a lack of consensus regarding the necessity of performing in-office nasal debridement and the majority of clinicians carry out their postoperative care according to experience and their own preference. This is often determined by the extent of surgery performed, the severity of the postoperative inflammation, as well as being dependent on the patient's discomfort, the time constraints associated with postoperative care and the costs associated with additional appointments. Ideally, nasal debridement should be performed by the operating surgeon under endoscopic control both gently and atraumatically. [less ▲]

Most scientific reports debate the thymotropic and immuno-stimulating properties of the somato- trope growth hormone-releasing hormone (GHRH)/growth hormone (GH)/insulin-like growth factor (IGF)-1 axis, but there is still some disagreement about the physiological role of this axis in basal conditions. Moreover, some authors have hypothesized that the physiological role of the somato- trope axis only appears in stressful conditions (such as sepsis or infective and inflammatory diseases). This chapter will provide an extended overview of the expression of the components (signals and receptors) of the somatotrope axis and their properties on cells of the innate and adaptive immune system. It will also summarize some clinical studies suggesting a benefit for a short-term GH treat- ment in acute immunodeficiencies, and the importance of GH supplementation in adult GH defi- ciency. A new transgenic mouse model, the hypothalamic GHRH-deficient (Ghrh–/–) mouse, which exhibits a severe deficiency of the somatotrope axis, will be presented since it will be of great help in further deciphering the regulation by the GHRH/GH/IGF-1 axis on both immune development and function. Finally, we will discuss the implication of aging-related somatopause in relation to the general context of Immunosenescence. [less ▲]

Modeling individual fish habitat selection in highly variable environments such as hydropeaking rivers is required for guiding efficient management decisions. We analyzed fish microhabitat selection in the heterogeneous hydraulic and thermal conditions (modeled in two-dimensions) of a reach of the large hydropeaking Rhône River locally warmed by the cooling system of a nuclear power plant. We used modern fixed acoustic telemetry techniques to survey 18 fish individuals (five barbels, six catfishes, seven chubs) signaling their position every 3 s over a three-month period. Fish habitat selection depended on combinations of current microhabitat hydraulics (e.g. velocity, depth), past microhabitat hydraulics (e.g. dewatering risk or maximum velocities during the past 15 days) and to a lesser extent substrate and temperature. Mixed-effects habitat selection models indicated that individual effects were often stronger than specific effects. In the Rhône, fish individuals appear to memorize spatial and temporal environmental changes and to adopt a “least constraining” habitat selection. Avoiding fast-flowing midstream habitats, fish generally live along the banks in areas where the dewatering risk is high. When discharge decreases, however, they select higher velocities but avoid both dewatering areas and very fast-flowing midstream habitats. Although consistent with the available knowledge on static fish habitat selection, our quantitative results demonstrate temporal variations in habitat selection, depending on individual behavior and environmental history. Their generality could be further tested using comparative experiments in different environmental configurations. [less ▲]

Sp7/osterix (osx) encodes a zinc-finger transcription factor that controls osteoblast differentiation in mammals. Although identified in all vertebrate lineages, its role in non-mammalian bone formation remains elusive. Here we show that an osx mutation in medaka results in severe bone defects and larval lethality. Pre-osteoblasts fail to differentiate leading to severe intramembranous and perichondral ossification defects. The notochord sheath mineralizes normally supporting the idea of an osteoblast-independent mechanism for teleost vertebral centra formation. This study establishes a key role for Sp7/Osx for bone formation also in a non-mammalian species, and reveals conserved and non-conserved features in vertebrate bone formation. [less ▲]

Comment rencontrer l’homme schizophrène dans sa singularité, dans la richesse et les difficultés de son expérience ? Comment partager l’indicible de la rupture psychotique ? Comment dépasser les catégorisations symptomatiques réduisant, selon une perspective en troisième personne, l’homme à sa maladie ? Les auteurs proposent une approche contemporaine et inédite de la schizophrénie. Ils s’inspirent d’un outil, l’échelle EASE, qui permet, selon une perspective en première personne, une exploration guidée de la (des) subjectivité(s) schizophrénique(s). L’échelle pose des balises dans l’investigation d’expériences liées aux troubles du soi. Elle permet de percevoir différemment la maladie, de l’intérieur, offrant ainsi une alternative rigoureuse aux approches a-subjectives des DSM-IV et 5. Située en amont de tout a priori théorique, la voie de la psychopathologie phénoménologique est une perspective originale, susceptible de nouer des dialogues féconds tant avec la psychanalyse qu’avec les sciences cognitives. Le choix d’une approche phénoménologique s’ancre dans une volonté de laisser la place à l’étonnement, de ne pas pré-penser, ou le moins possible, le recueil d’expériences. Les explorations des phénomènes décrits par les patients se nourrissent de la tradition de la psychopathologie phénoménologique (Blankenburg, Minkowski, Binswanger, Tatossian) et de ses apports contemporains (Stanghellini, Sass, Parnas, Fuchs) tout en laissant au phénomène clinique la primauté. Après une analyse approfondie du discours des patients, l’ouvrage explore l’hypothèse proposée par Louis Sass selon laquelle la folie pourrait dériver d’une intensification plutôt que d’un affaiblissement de la conscience. Les phénomènes d’hyper-réflexivité, particulièrement saillants dans les descriptions, semblent constituer des moments centraux dans leur rapport au monde. Ils se plaignent notamment d’une exacerbation de la pensée, de la recherche de sens, de l’intensité de la réflexion au détriment de la capacité d’abandon naturelle et antéprédicative au monde. Ce que les personnes schizophrènes ont à nous dire de leur expérience subjective, si l’on prend la peine de la creuser avec elles et malgré la rudesse de leur vécu, s’avère, au final, étonnant.

The progress accomplished during the past decade in nonlinear system identi fication in structural dynamics is considerable. The objective of the present paper is to consolidate this progress by challenging the community through a new benchmark structure exhibiting complex nonlinear dynamics. The proposed structure consists of two o ffset cantilevered beams connected by a highly flexible element. For increasing forcing amplitudes, the system sequentially features linear behaviour, localised nonlinearity associated with the buckling of the connecting element, and distributed nonlinearity resulting from large elastic deformations across the structure. A finite element-based code with time integration capabilities is made available at http://sem.org/TDIV-Nonlin.asp. This code permits the numerical simulation of the benchmark dynamics in response to arbitrary excitation signals. [less ▲]

Most studies tackling hysteresis identification in the technical literature follow white-box approaches, i.e. they rely on the assumption that measured data obey a specific hysteretic model. Such an assumption may be a hard requirement to handle in real applications, since hysteresis is a highly individualistic nonlinear behaviour. The present paper adopts a black-box approach based on nonlinear state-space models to identify hysteresis dynamics. This approach is shown to provide a general framework to hysteresis identification, featuring flexibility and parsimony of representation. Nonlinear model terms are constructed as a multivariate polynomial in the state variables, and parameter estimation is performed by minimising weighted least-squares cost functions. Technical issues, including the selection of the model order and the polynomial degree, are discussed, and model validation is achieved in both broadband and sine conditions. The study is carried out numerically by exploiting synthetic data generated via the Bouc-Wen equations. [less ▲]

Therapeutic interventions support change in delinquent youths rather than rely on surveillance and deterrence. This article describes successful and concrete components for therapeutic interventions in juvenile justice facilities. The effectiveness of remedial measures to best address the sources of youths' delinquent behaviors and the performance of juvenile justice system are discussed first, and then two theoretical frameworks of rehabilitative models are described that are commonly used with delinquent youths. Finally, specific recommendations for enhancing treatment in juvenile justice facilities with regard to the content of interventions, social climate, and youth motivation to engage in treatment are described and explained in a way intended to help caregivers and practitioners, supervisors of juvenile justice facilities, and policy makers improve the daily life of youths placed in this kind of environment.
