The amount of wind turbines has increased exponentially in Belgium in the last eight years (175 in 2007, 771 in 2015). During this period, especially in the last two years, critics of this energy have become more organised, virulent, and active in delaying or stopping many projects. The landscape impact of wind energy is central to their arguments. We wonder if people’s attitudes towards wind turbines and landscape changed in the last years in Belgium and how they changed. This paper compares public perception of wind energy in two researches about landscape perception. The two studies used slightly different methodologies but with similarities in the designs, allowing some comparisons. The first research (2007‐2009) aimed to study the perceived landscape impact and the social acceptance of wind turbines in Belgium. 1542 Belgians were surveyed about their landscape preferences using a photo‐questionnaire, including some pictures with wind turbines. 75 stakeholders of wind energy projects were also interviewed. The second research (2012‐2014) aimed to examine deeper the landscape preferences among 54 residents in three areas in Wallonia where wind turbines are present, using the previous photographs. During the conduct of the first research, changing attitudes were already observed. People had become more familiar with wind turbines and were less reluctant. The symbolic positive aspect of wind energy was highlighted seven years ago. This view continues. However, people seem more categorical in their viewpoint. All respondents have now been confronted to wind energy, which was not the case seven years ago. Some persons are not against wind farms but their increase in number start to overwhelm them. Others point they get used to the turbines, as long as they are not too many and too close. The huge increase in wind farms in the last seven years has changed the acceptance of wind energy. Some doubts about the real efficiency of this energy also shaped the attitudes. [less ▲]

The COST Action TU1401 ‘Renewable Energy and Landscape Quality’ ('RELY') encourages Short Term Scientific Missions (STSMs). This Action investigates “the inter‐relationships between renewable energy production and landscape quality, and the role of public participation for the acceptance of renewable energy systems”. STSMs are exchange visits from five working days until three months that are aiming to strengthen the existing networks by allowing individual scientists to go to an institution or laboratory in other COST country to foster collaboration and contribute to the scientific objectives of the COST Action. Each year of the COST Action TU1401, there are up to six STSMs to be awarded. The financial support is a contribution to the costs of a STSM. A grant (maximum 2500€ depending on the duration of the stay) covers travel and subsistence. We invite researchers, especially early stage researchers, to participate in a STSM. The selection of STSM applicants is based on the scientific scope of the STSM application that must be in line with the Cost Action TU1401 objectives. This short communication aims to inform of the next calls and presents the result of the 2015 call. [less ▲]

In the Bayesian Reinforcement Learning (BRL) setting, agents try to maximise the col- lected rewards while interacting with their environment while using some prior knowledge that is accessed beforehand. Many BRL algorithms have already been proposed, but even though a few toy examples exist in the literature, there are still no extensive or rigorous benchmarks to compare them. The paper addresses this problem, and provides a new BRL comparison methodology along with the corresponding open source library. In this methodology, a comparison criterion that measures the performance of algorithms on large sets of Markov Decision Processes (MDPs) drawn from some probability distributions is defined. In order to enable the comparison of non-anytime algorithms, our methodology also includes a detailed analysis of the computation time requirement of each algorithm. Our library is released with all source code and documentation: it includes three test prob- lems, each of which has two different prior distributions, and seven state-of-the-art RL algorithms. Finally, our library is illustrated by comparing all the available algorithms and the results are discussed. [less ▲]

In addition to the transcriptional activity of their liganded nuclear receptors, estrogens, such as estradiol (E2), modulate cell functions, and consequently physiology and behavior, within minutes through membrane-initiated events. The membrane-associated receptors (mERs) underlying the acute effects of estrogens on behavior have mostly been documented in females where active estrogens are thought to be of ovarian origin. We determined here, by acute intracerebroventricular injections of specific agonists and antagonists, the type(s) of mERs that modulate rapid effects of brain-derived estrogens on sexual motivation in male Japanese quail. Brain aromatase blockade acutely inhibited sexual motivation. Diarylpropionitrile (DPN), an estrogen receptor β (ERβ)-specific agonist, and to a lesser extent 17α-estradiol, possibly acting through ER-X, prevented this effect. In contrast, drugs targeting ERα (PPT and MPP), GPR30 (G1 and G15), and the Gq-mER (STX) did not affect sexual motivation. The mGluR1a antagonist LY367385 significantly inhibited sexual motivation but mGluR2/3 and mGluR5 antagonists were ineffective. LY367385 also blocked the behavioral restoration induced by E2 or DPN, providing functional evidence that ERβ interacts with metabotropic glutamate receptor 1a (mGluR1a) signaling to acutely regulate male sexual motivation. Together these results show that ERβ plays a key role in sexual behavior regulation and the recently uncovered cooperation between mERs and mGluRs is functional in males where it mediates the acute effects of estrogens produced centrally in response to social stimuli. The presence of an ER-mGluR interaction in birds suggests that this mechanism emerged relatively early in vertebrate history and is well conserved. Significance statement: The membrane-associated receptors underlying the acute effects of estrogens on behavior have mostly been documented in females, where active estrogens are thought to be of ovarian origin. Using acute intracerebroventricular injections of specific agonists and antagonists following blockade of brain aromatase, we show here that brain-derived estrogens acutely facilitate male sexual motivation through the activation of estrogen receptor β interacting with the metabotropic glutamate receptor 1a. This behavioral effect occurring within minutes provides a mechanistic explanation of how an estrogen receptor not intrinsically coupled to intracellular effectors can signal from the membrane to govern behavior in a very rapid fashion. It suggests that different subtypes of estrogen receptors could regulate the motivation versus performance aspects of behavior. [less ▲]

In political science, the analysis of political documents is crucial as it helps assessing a wide range of hypotheses related to the priorities set before political actors and institutions. The most widely used and most efficient of the too many methods of assessing political documents are those carried out manually, though. And yet, automatic encoding bears fundamental advantages as well. This paper sets out to compare and contrast the results of two distinct methods applied on the same corpus of texts: one method uses manual encoding content of political documents whereas the other relies on computer-based data encoding. Electoral manifestoes of Belgian main political parties between 1987 and 2007 constitute the basis of the study. Identifying and comparing the major thematics dealt with in the corpus enable us to point out a range of differences and similarities. The paper discusses both methods of encoding so as a set of conclusions is drawn and available for future analyses of political texts. [less ▲]

The temporal variation in carbon and nitrogen isotopic compositions (noted as δ13C and δ15N) was investigated in the convict surgeonfish (Acanthurus triostegus) at Moorea (French Polynesia). Over a period of 24 days, juveniles were reared in aquaria and subjected to two different feeding treatments: granules or algae. The dynamics of δ13C and δ15N in two muscles (the adductor mandibulae complex and the epaxial musculature) having different functions were compared. At the end of experiments, a steady-state isotopic system in each muscle tissue was not reached. Especially for the algal treatment, we found different patterns of variation in isotopic compositions over time between the two muscles. The turnovers of δ13C showed opposite trends for each muscle but differences are mitigated by starvation and by the metamorphosis. Our study highlighted that the metabolism of coral reef fish may be subjected to catabolism or anabolism of non-protein precursors at settlement, inducing variation in isotopic compositions that are not linked to diet change.

Acoustic communication plays an important role in the life of many teleost species where it is mainly involved in agonistic and/or courtship behavior. Despite the large number of Serrasalmidae species (92), sound production has been described only in the genera Serrasalmus and Pygocentrus. The aim of this study was first to investigate the sound producing abilities of different Serrasalmidae species and then to describe and understand the corresponding mechanisms. One herbivorous species, Piaractus brachypomus, produces sounds composed of a single pulse. The mechanism would involve the vibration of the bladder due to the hypaxial musculature contraction. In contrast, the calls emitted by Serrasalmus rhombeus, Serrasalmus compressus, Serrasalmus marginatus, Serrasalmus elongatus, Pygocentrus nattereri and Pristobrycon eigenmanni are all harmonic sounds composed of several pulses without inter-pulse interval. They all show the same kind of mechanism: the sound results from the forced vibration of the swimbladder following the contraction of sonic muscles that are attached to a perpendicular tendon surrounding ventrally the bladder. A last species, Pygopristis denticulata, is able to produce another type of sounds. It consists of several pulses with irregular pulse period and is likely produced by a sonic muscle inserting on the skull and on the rostral part of the swimbladder. The relatively high diversity of sound types and mechanisms in Serrasalmidae will be used in the future to understand the evolutionary development of this particular behavior. Do the mechanisms evolve separately or is there a continuity between them? [less ▲]

From the earliest Neolithic in the Near East to the last Chalcolithic cultures in Western Europe, certain flint tools have been used as sickles to harvest cereals. Such harvesting tools can be identified through use-wear analyses, because cutting herbaceous plants produces specific wear-traces on the working edge of flint blades. The aim of this work is to explore harvesting-driven microwear variability and, more particularly, intensity of use as a governing factor. To achieve this objective, an experiment was designed consisting in the production of flint replicas to be used as harvesting tools, in various controlled conditions. A simple, cost-effective method of quantifying wear-traces by meas uring polish extent is developed, requiring only classical use-wear observation equipment. Polish extent shows monotonic correlation with the amount of work, expressed either in terms of time or as the quantity of cereals harvested. Polish extent measurement is therefore proposed as a reliable and powerful descriptor of use intensity. [less ▲]

Introduction: Infiltration of Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) may be considered as a recent therapeutic option for chronic tendinopathies. The aim of this study is to evaluate the clinical status and the return to sports activities in patients with chronic upper patellar tendinopathies. Material and methods : Twenty subjects with chronic upper patellar tendinopathy benefited from 1 infiltration of PRP. The follow-up (up to 1 year) was assessed by means of a Visual Anologue Scale (VAS), the International Knee Documentation Committee (IKDC) form and the Victorian Institute of Sport Assessment (VISA-P) score. Moreover, subjects had to answer an information questionnaire concerning their life and sports activities. Results : Seventy percents of the patients reported a favourable evolution with decrease of pain, and returned to sports activities. With time, VAS dropped significantly and both IKDC and VISA-P scores improved also significantly. Conclusion : This study confirms that a local injection of PRP coupled with a program of eccentric rehabilitation for treating a chronic jumper's knee, improves pain symptoms and the functionalities of the subjects’ knee up to 1 year after injection.

Introduction Every physical activity is tiresome for the body; muscles produce metabolites and lactic acid which limit its working ability. It is then necessary to efficiently and quickly recover after the effort. In fact, a bad recovery could bring prejudice to the following performance and the athlete's physical state. Active recovery and balneotherapy together with new techniques such as cryotherapy and electro stimulation are upcoming tools to recover better. The goal of this study was to compare the impact of 2 types of electro stimulator : « VeinoPlus Sport » (VPS) and « TENS » on amateur soccer players after Yo-Yo-type effort. Material and methods In an identical context, each athlete (20 soccer players; average age 17,1 ± 0,79) benefited from VPS and TENS during 2 different treatment sessions after 2 Yo-Yo-type efforts. Four blood samples were taken (lactate, blood gases, ions, cardiac markers,...) and an explosiveness Myotest evaluation was conducted respectively before effort, just after effort, after recovery, and after the second effort. A questionnaire on the fatigue state was filled out by each athlete. For the statistical analysis, we used the Anova algorithm of the StatPlus system and a Scheffé test. Results All athletes have ran a greater distance in their second effort especially in the VPS group but differences were insignificant. The test lead to a significant variation of lactate, HCO3- ions and myoglobin. The study of other blood parameters and of the explosiveness parameters didn't show any significant variations. Nevertheless according to the subjective athlete's opinion the VPS group has noted less legs pain, less overall fatigue, less diminishment of strength and fitter than the TENS group between 12 and 24 hours after effort. Finally all athletes have said to like the use of a electro-stimulation recovery device better than their normal daily recovery techniques without expressing any preferences between VPS and TENS. Discussion - Conclusion This comparative study only shows minor differences, non significant, between the two devices. The two groups have ran the greatest distance during the second effort which suggests that the test wasn't tiresome despite biological signs of "fatigue". However on subjective criteria of recovery and well-being a slight preference was shown for the VPS device. The results should be taken into consideration in a other comparative study of the recovery devices with more tiresome effort. [less ▲]

Introduction: Some clinical series have evaluated the effect of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) in the treatment of proximal patellar tendinopathy. Although it is possible that a single infiltrative administration may prove to be an effective treatment for this indication, most of the existing studies evaluated the effects of 2 or 3 successive infiltrations. The aim of this study was to evaluate whether 2 infiltrations of PRP proves more effective than a single treatment. Material and methods: Twenty patients suffering from chronic proximal patellar tendinopathy were enrolled into the study and split into two randomized groups (1 or 2 infiltrations of PRP, respectively). The 3-month follow-up evaluation consisted of VAS, IKDC and VISA-P scores, along with algometer, isokinetic and ultrasounds evaluations. After 1 year, subjects were contacted to define their functional evolution. Results: The concentration of the PRP used for each infiltration was similar in both groups, and contained no red or white cells. Results revealed no difference in treatment efficacy between the groups. Discussion and conclusion: The comparison between 1 or 2 infiltrations of PRP did not reveal any difference between the 2 groups at short to mid term. A second closely-timed infiltration of PRP to treat chronic proximal patellar tendinopathy is not necessary to improve the efficacy of this treatment in the short term. [less ▲]

Bulk (RE)BCO superconductors are able to trap record magnetic fields and can be used as powerful permanent magnets in various engineering applications such as rotating machines and magnetic bearings. We combine soft ferromagnetic pieces with bulk, large grain (RE)BCO high temperature superconductors to form superconductor/ferromagnet (SC/FM) hybrid structures. We study how a ferromagnetic disc influences the trapped flux density at the surface of a SC/FM structure at 77 K and the magnetic moment of the whole structure. The flux density generated by the superconductor is shielded above the ferromagnet. The saturation of the ferromagnet by the flux of the superconductor is investigated with the help of a finite element model and a simple analytical formula is suggested to determine the saturation threshold. Finally, we show that the ferromagnetic disc lowers the relative demagnetization effect caused by the application of magnetic field cycles orthogonal to the main magnetization (crossed field configuration).

Le projet couvre les 3 axes suivants : 1) Développement de l’interface et portabilité du modèle dans l’environnement Windows, fourniture de l’interface utilisateur (GUI) pour une utilisation conviviale du modèle PEGASE sous Windows ; 2) Implémentation de nouvelles fonctionnalités opérationnelles (micropolluants, zones de mélange, problématique des Normes de Qualité Environnementale (NQE), …) ; 3) Réalisation de travaux spécifiques relatifs à l’application Wallonie (mise à jour des données d’entrée, vérifications et corrections des bases de données, simulations particulières,…). Ce rapport final reprend les tâches réalisées au cours de la deuxième phase du projet (soit les troisième et quatrième années du projet). La plupart de ces tâches sont relatives à des développements « mineurs » de l’application qui ont demandé des efforts de courte durée (de l’ordre d’une à deux semaines de travail). Elles seront présentées, pour la plupart brièvement, ci-après. Un effort particulier était prévu pour la création de « wizards » permettant de faciliter l’utilisation du logiciel pour certaines tâches de routines liées principalement aux demandes d’autorisations.
