Guinea fowl production in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) is generally practiced under family and traditional rearing systems mainly for consumption and income generation, but this species plays also a major socio-cultural role in specific ceremonies. Birds are kept in free range or in confinement with outdoor access and fed on grain cereals, vegetables, edible termites and kitchen residues found in nature or occasionally supplied by the farmers. Several Guinea fowl varieties are observed and all are characterized by slow growth, high mortality of young and a relatively wild instinct. Although this avian species is less sensitive to some poultry diseases (Newcastle disease, Marek disease, Gumboro disease, etc), local guinea fowl are very sensitive to other poorly controlled diseases that require further study. These varieties differ greatly by their feather color, their morphological characteristics and growth performance, but further thorough and sustained research is needed to quantify these differences. Several researches established the nutritional requirements of local Guinea fowl but in terms of breeding, little works were done compared to chicken. Some recessive and dominant genes as well as genotypic differences were highlighted between varieties. [less ▲]

When presented in Durham during the 1995 WICC workshop, the concept of quaternary prevention, born in 1986, has attracted the consensus of the whole audience. In 2003 it has been discretely published in the Wonca dictionary of general practice. Since this time, medicine has changed. The diffusion of knowledge and the sagacity of some researchers has shown that medicine could become dangerous for health. The concepts of overinformation, overdiagnosis, overtreatment and overscreening are now the bread and butter of numerous medical journals and the themes of numerous books and disputes throughout the world. Quaternary prevention encompasses all those domains and supersedes them by putting the relationships between patient and doctor at the center of the ethical reflection. WICC has been instrumental in the genesis and dissemination of the concept of quaternary prevention. This concept is now known and distributed worldwide under the acronym P4. Family physicians form interlinked P4 groups in various countries. It is the theme of many congresses and was propelled to the forefront of the recent Wonca Europe Congress. This concept could induce profound changes in the role of the family physician in health care. Moreover, the combination of the four definitions of prevention provided an amazing view of the activity of family physicians and could renew basic job description in GP / FM. [less ▲]

The hardness and corrosion resistance of TiN coatings, processed by Electrophoretic Deposition (EPD) to cover polished and unpolished Ti substrates, have been evaluated. A deposition time of 5 min has been enough to obtain a cohesive layer of 7–8 μm in thickness. The coatings were thermally treated in vacuum atmosphere at 1200 °C for 1 h with heating and cooling rates of 5 °C min−1. The surfaces have been covered homogeneously optimizing the properties of the Ti substrates. Uniform and dense TiN coatings have been obtained onto polished substrates, while on unpolished Ti the nitrogen diffuses toward the substrate, moderately dissolving TiN coating. The nanohardness values of the polished samples have been increased from 2.8–4.8 GPa up to 6.5–8.5 GPa. Besides, the corrosion current density has been reduced more than one order of magnitude obtaining a protective efficiency of 82%. These values have been compared with other works in literature where authors used complex and costly processing techniques, demonstrating the strong impact of the colloidal processing over the specific properties of the material.

The aim of the present study is to build a mathematical model of the respiratory system connected to an extracorporeal CO2 removal device (ECCO2RD) to optimize the gas exchanges efficiency. The model must be simple enough to provide rapid solutions and to estimate specific parameters from available clinical data. But it also must be complex enough to be able to simulate the respiratory system when protective ventilation is used and when this system is assisted by an ECCO2RD. [less ▲]

We describe the development of new nuclear SNP markers for the genetic timber tracking of the geographical origin of Sapelli, Entandrophragma cylindricum (Meliaceae). Restriction associated DNA sequencing (RADseq) of two reference individuals yielded 1131 putative SNPs. Among those, 131 were selected to design four MassARRAY multiplexes and screened at 178 individuals. Seventy-two loci were selected for further use in genetic tracking. [less ▲]

The urban landscape is a stratification of natural, cultural, and socio-economic processes that shape it spatially and experientially over time. The different cultural values embedded in the tangible and intangible attributes of the urban landscape are essential to its unique sense of place, and cultural identity. In the era of globalization, rapid urbanization, and unsustainable urban development, cultural heritage has been recognized as an enabler for sustainable development that adapts, and evolves through time with the changes occurring in the city, and at the same time maintains its identity, integrity, and continuity. In this context, UNESCO recommended the application of the Historic Urban Landscape (HUL) approach to the management of thoughtful change and the conservation of cultural heritage. According to the HUL approach cultural values should be taken as a starting point in urban management and development. It is important that decision makers and experts are aware of the potential and variety of cultural values present within exceptional, ordinary, and even deteriorated urban landscapes. In recent years we have witnessed rapid advances in social networking and photo-sharing communities that are generating big data including geographic information, photos, and commentaries. Our assumption is that the phenomenon of user-generated data from social media offers awareness about the dynamic social interactions within places, and express moments, experiences, practices, and identities contributing to the understanding of cultural values associated with the urban landscape. Accordingly, this paper extracts, analyses, and visualizes photos metadata of Tripoli, Lebanon published on Flickr for the application to the fields of urban management and conservation. [less ▲]

This special collection follows up on the transdisciplinary conference Poetics of the Algorithm held at the University of Liège (Belgium) in June 2016. Narrative today is undergoing a radical change in its ‘source code’ as new technologies are changing the way texts are produced, distributed, viewed and read. Even though comics have originally been resistant to a sweeping digital translation, weary of a technological utopianism that did not bode well for its own specificities, cartoonists have increasingly adapted to this new media ecology, using it to reinvent their approach to comics making. A poetics of digital comics would aim at mapping out how comics respond to the deep technological change of the digital in complex ways, avoiding the pitfall of a new vs. old dichotomy and thus accounting for both its innovative forays into digital creation as well as its paradoxes, resistances, residues and returns. By bringing Francophone voices into English, this collection, under the editorial direction of Benoît Crucifix, Björn-Olav Dozo, Aarnoud Rommens and Ernesto Priego for The Comics Grid: Journal of Comics Scholarship, seeks to encourage international scholarship spanning from the cutting-edge of a ‘French comics theory’ that, in recent years, has paid increasing attention to digital comics.

The aim of this study was to compare trapping efficiency between Berlese-Tullgren funnels, pitfall traps and hand sorting sampling methods for soil litter arthropods. The study was carried out at the Arboretum of Ruhande and Rubona agricultural research station, in southern Rwanda. Biological indices indicated that pitfall traps collect a wide range of soil litter arthropod diversity, and chi-square test indicated the dependence between Berlese-Tullgren funnels and pitfall traps, and between pitfall traps and hand sorting. Z-test and univariate comparison indicated differences in means between tested sampling methods. The analysis of variance revealed that pitfall traps are less time consuming and the principal component analysis indicated that Formicidae is likely to be collected by pitfall traps and Berlese-Tullgren funnels, while Julidae, Porcellionidae and Geophilidae are likely to be collected by hand sorting. Research concluded that pitfall traps are more efficient than other studied sampling methods, but further studies should be conducted in other ecological zones, and different land uses in order to generate general information of these findings.
