This volume presents the complete collection of complete pots and profiles (ca. 1800 vessels) dating to the 3rd millennium BC, recovered during the excavations carried out at Tell Beydar during sixteen seasons (from 1992 to 2010). Tell Beydar, located in the syrian Jezirah region was a second rank urban center during the second part of the 3rd millennium BC. The EJZ 3b city has been widely explored by extensive excavations and offered large assemblages of archaeological material. This monograph offers a clear vision of the material culture of the site and allows us to insert it in the cultural landscape of Upper-Mesopotamia during the 3rd millennium BC. [less ▲]

Applying the concept of organizational fields within an intra-organizational approach, this chapter traces the issue of ‘environmental migration’ and its institutional location within European Union (EU) structures. It argues that responses have been shaped by security actors within the EU before being integrated into climate change adaptation, regional partnerships and thematic issues vis-à-vis development cooperation in third countries. Moreover, an organizational shift in treating the linkages between environment and climate change and migration belies an institutional change. An accompanying change in modalities of responses may offer promising avenues to address the topic within a fledgling common approach to migration. [less ▲]

Dopo una introduzione storica e storiografica sul significato dei culti regali ellenistici, l’intervento esamina alcuni dei nomi divini attribuiti ad Arsinoe II nelle fonti letterarie e documentarie, con l’eccezione dell’epiclesi esclusiva Philadelphos. Scopo della ricerca è 1) una valutazione delle strategie di inserimento della nuova dea nel pantheon tradizionale; 2) una riflessione sull’autoconsapevolezza degli antichi in relazione alla propria tradizione religiosa, per come essa si manifesta attraverso l’oculata manipolazione di un elemento essenziale nella definizione della divinità, qual è il nome divino. Un’Appendice elenca, in tre tabelle, tutte le denominazioni greche di Arsinoe II (esclusa Philadelphos), fornendo indicazioni sulla fonte, la sua collocazione spaziale e temporale e sulla divinità tradizionale di riferimento.

L’image de Charles Martel pilleur d’Église figure encore dans bon nombre de nos manuels et grandes synthèses historiques. Il en va de même de celle de l’avènement de Pépin III à la royauté, élu par un peuple franc unanime, sur un précepte du pape Zacharie, et oint par Boniface. Or, de multiples questions ont été soulevées, ces dernières années, de nouvelles orientations de recherche ont été suggérées, qui constituent un pressant appel à un nouvel examen de la crédibilité des sources principales de l'histoire du royaume franc. Selon toute vraisemblance, la conviction des Carolingiens de détenir leur pouvoir directement de Dieu ne remonte pas au-delà du changement de dynastie mais n’est pas née ex nihilo. Elle plonge ses racines dans les décennies qui précédèrent le coup d’État de 751. L’alliance franco-pontificale de 754 fut, de toute évidence, l’aboutissement d’une transformation progressive de l’attitude des Pippinides à l’égard de Rome, du sentiment religieux et de leur rapport au sacré. À la fois typologie de sources et florilège, ce volume entend donner un aperçu de l’ampleur et de la diversité du corpus de sources à ceux et celles qui souhaiteraient aborder ce pan de l’histoire politico-religieuse du haut Moyen Âge, en présentant vingt-six sources du VIIIe siècle – narratives, diplomatiques, épistolaires ou liturgiques – traduites et commentées, retenues pour leur caractère exemplatif.

L’année 2012 marque un double anniversaire: 40 ans d’existence du Front National (FN) français, 30 ans d’existence médiatique. Cette communication tente de montrer en quoi la communication du FN paraît particulièrement bien adaptée aux logiques médiatiques. Il s’agit de réévaluer le « contrat de mariage » FN/médias à la lumière des évolutions récentes qui ont affecté leurs relations depuis que Marine Le Pen a repris le flambeau, de manière à éclairer, plus généralement, les conditions médiatiques d’existence des partis dits « populistes ». J’évoquerai les mutations récentes de la communication du FN, sur le plan des discours et des relations avec les journalistes, avant d’aborder l’évolution concomitante du traitement médiatique de Marine Le Pen. À partir de là sera posée la question de la diffusion des idées frontistes dans l’espace médiatique, envisagée comme le produit d’une interaction entre les instances politique, médiatique et citoyenne – l’ « opinion publique » saisie par les sondages. Je tâcherai alors de faire le point sur les différentes logiques médiatiques qui tendent à valoriser le parti, avant de conclure par quelques considérations sur les défis que représentent pour les journalistes les métamorphoses actuelles du FN.

This chapter reports on the two PACITA summers schools, which were aimed at teaching TA as well as enhancing mutual-learning activities. The first summer school concentrated on the topic ‘Renewable Energy Systems- role and use of PTA’ and it was held in Liege in June 2012. The second summer school addressed the topic of ‘Ageing and Technology’, and was held in Cork in June 2014. We describe the rationale and format of the summer school in order to present a comprehensive account of how it was introduced TA, both its rational and its methods, to a new audience. We argue that as the responsible innovation agenda continues to gain traction among policy makers, societal actors and academics, education initiatives such as TA summer schools can have an important role to play in the future of the governance of science, technology and innovation.

Customers often experience intense emotions during service encounters. Their perceptions of how well contact employees demonstrate emotional competence in emotionally charged service encounters can affect their service evaluations and loyalty intentions. Previous studies examining employees’ potential to behave in emotionally competent ways (i.e., employee emotional intelligence [EEI]) have used self- or supervisor-reported scales to predict customer outcomes, presenting EEI as stable and independent of the context. However, service firms should be more concerned with the actual display of emotionally competent behaviors by employees (employee emotional competence [EEC]), because employee behaviors vary across encounters. Moreover, a customer perspective of EEC is useful as customer perceptions of employee performance are crucial predictors of satisfaction and loyalty. Therefore, this study proposes a conceptualization and operationalization of EEC in a service encounter context. On the basis of a comprehensive literature review and in-depth interviews, the authors develop a scale to capture customer-perceived EEC, defined as an employee’s competence in perceiving, understanding, and regulating customer emotions during a discrete service encounter. The scale achieves good reliability and validity. Researchers can use it to explore the role of EEC in service contexts; managers can employ the scale to diagnose EEC and improve customers’ service encounter experiences. [less ▲]

1. Plant functional traits, in particular specific leaf area (SLA), wood density and seed mass, are often good predictors of individual tree growth rates within communities. Individuals and species with high SLA, low wood density and small seeds tend to have faster growth rates. 2. If community-level relationships between traits and growth have general predictive value, then similar relationships should also be observed in analyses that integrate across taxa, biogeographic regions and environments. Such global consistency would imply that traits could serve as valuable proxies for the complex suite of factors that determine growth rate, and, therefore, could underpin a new generation of robust dynamic vegetation models. Alternatively, growth rates may depend more strongly on the local environment or growth–trait relationships may vary along environmental gradients. 3. We tested these alternative hypotheses using data on 27 352 juvenile trees, representing 278 species from 27 sites on all forested continents, and extensive functional trait data, 38% of which were obtained at the same sites at which growth was assessed. Data on potential evapotranspiration (PET), which summarizes the joint ecological effects of temperature and precipitation, were obtained from a global data base. 4. We estimated size-standardized relative height growth rates (SGR) for all species, then related them to functional traits and PET using mixed-effect models for the fastest growing species and for all species together. 5. Both the mean and 95th percentile SGR were more strongly associated with functional traits than with PET. PET was unrelated to SGR at the global scale. SGR increased with increasing SLA and decreased with increasing wood density and seed mass, but these traits explained only 3.1% of the variation in SGR. SGR–trait relationships were consistently weak across families and biogeographic zones, and over a range of tree statures. Thus, the most widely studied functional traits in plant ecology were poor predictors of tree growth over large scales. 6. Synthesis. We conclude that these functional traits alone may be unsuitable for predicting growth of trees over broad scales. Determining the functional traits that predict vital rates under specific environmental conditions may generate more insight than a monolithic global relationship can offer. [less ▲]

A detailed experimental and numerical investigation has been performed on the behavior under fire conditions of concrete filled steel hollow section (CFSHS) columns. In this study the internal reinforcement consists of another profile (tube or H section) being embedded with the concrete, and filling is realized by self-compacting concrete (SCC). Ten columns filled with self-compacting concrete embedding another steel profile have been tested in the Fire Testing Laboratory of the University of Liege, Belgium. Numerical simulations on the thermal and structural behavior of these elements have been made using the non linear finite element software SAFIR developed at the University of Liege. There is a rather good agreement between numerical and experimental results, which can be slightly improved by using the ETC (Explicit Transient Creep) model incorporated in SAFIR. This shows that numerical analyses can predict well the behavior of CFSHS columns under fire conditions. The properties at high temperatures of self-compacting concrete are considered the same as those of ordinary concrete. [less ▲]
