Common clay deposits from five localities in Foumban (West Cameroon) were investigated for their morphological, mineralogical and geochemical properties to determine their potential source rocks and suitability in ceramic product. The analytical results were obtained by X-ray diffraction, X-ray fluorescence spectrometry, Thermogravimetric Analysis, Scanning Electron Microscopy, and Fourier Transform Infrared Spectrometry. Morphologically, an homogeneous clayey layer was found in the upper part of a laterite cover on interfluves, and a clayey heterogeneous hydromorphic material in valleys. They are minerallogically composed of kaolinite (25-84%), illite (0-18%), smectite (0- 31%), and chlorite (0-8 %), associated with quartz (2-44 %), K-feldspars (0-27 %.), plagioclase (0-26%), goethite; (0-9%) with traces of rutile and hematite (≤5 %). The geochemical analysis shows a 115 relative large amount of SiO2 (45-71%), Al2O3 (14-31%), and low Fe2O3 (up to 11 %) suggesting weathering of mainly granitic and rhyolitic parent rocks. Most studied clays could be applied to building ceramic product such as bricks (refractory or not) and tiles. Illite may promote the glassy phase responsible for the densification of the final product. In addition, the relatively high proportion of alkali elements (K2O + Na2O, 6-8%) in some samples from Marom, Koutaba and is responsible for low firing temperature. However the presence of smectite (up to 5 %) limits the application of some Koutaba and Marom clays for ceramic building. The high Fe2O3 contents (> 8 %) in some Bangourain clays implied some pretreatment. [less ▲]

In half the cases, bipolar disorder begins before adulthood. The usual long delay between its onset and the establishment of proper treatment has adverse effects on the developing brain. The prognosis of the disease could be improved by early diagnosis and treatment. From the case of a manic episode in a 16 year old teenager, we discuss the characteristics of manic prodromes, their diagnostic criteria and therapeutic means. We then criticize the concept of diagnosis in the stage of prodromal symptoms. We propose to dispense with the need for diagnosis and promote access to mental health care to any person with mental suffering. [less ▲]

Humans have the remarkable ability to mentally travel through past and future times. However, while memory for the times of past events has been much investigated, little is known about how imagined future events are temporally located. Using a think-aloud protocol, we found that the temporal location of past and future events is rarely directly accessed, but instead mostly relies on reconstructive and inferential strategies. References to lifetime periods and factual knowledge (about the self, others, and the world) were most frequently used to determine the temporal location of both past and future events. Event details (e.g., places, persons, or weather conditions) were also used, but mainly for past events. Finally, the results showed that events whose temporal location was directly accessed were judged more important for personal goals. Together, these findings shed new light on the mechanisms involved in locating personal events in past and future times. [less ▲]

This paper develops a probabilistic decision making framework for reliability management in the short-term operational planning context. We build upon our recent work, which proposed a probabilistic reliability management approach and criterion (RMAC) for the latest decision making opportunity of real-time system operation. Here, we transpose the RMAC to the preceding problem instance of short-term operational planning, wherein i) risk is aggravated by the uncertainty on power injections and weather conditions, and, ii) the problem scope concerns choosing `strategic' actions (e.g., starting additional generating units, granting outage requests for maintenance, etc.) to facilitate decision making during the forthcoming real-time system operation. To anticipate on the latter, we formalize the notion of a real-time `proxy' as a simplified model of the real-time decision making context, adequately accurate for the purpose of operational planning decision making. Stating a first proposal for such a proxy, we mathematically formulate the RMAC for short-term operational planning as a multi-stage stochastic decision making problem and demonstrate its main features by case studies on a modified version of the single area IEEE RTS-96 system.
