We present a new signal processing algorithm that extracts five gait events: heel strike, toe strike, heel-off, toe-off, and heel clearance from only two accelerometers attached on the heels of the subjects usual shoes. This algorithm first uses a continuous wavelet-based segmentation that parses the signal of consecutive strides into motionless periods defining relevant local acceleration signals. Then, the algorithm uses versatile techniques to accurately extract the five gait events from these local acceleration signals. We validated, on a stride-by-stride basis, the extraction of these gait events by comparing the results with reference data provided by a kinematic 3D analysis system and a video camera. The accuracy and precision achieved by the extraction algorithm for healthy subjects, the reduced number of accelerometer units required, and the validation results obtained, encourage us to further study this system in pathological conditions.

Pauly (1990) argues that an explanation for the low long-term care (LTC) insurance demand could be intra-family moral hazard: parents might refuse to buy insurance since it reduces children’s incentives to provide care. This paper raises and explores the idea that the extent of intra-family moral hazard and non-purchase of LTC insurance might differ when insurance benefits are fixed and when they are proportional to LTC expenditures. It shows that fixed benefits limit and might even eliminate intra-family moral hazard, while the effect of proportional benefits is at best ambiguous. Consequently, non-purchase of insurance is less likely with fixed benefits. [less ▲]

Il y a 500 ans, en octobre 2017, Martin Luther se prononça fermement, dans ses 95 thèses, contre la pratique des indulgences promue par Rome. Ses positions, qu’il approfondit dans plusieurs manifestes à succès, largement relayés par un usage intensif de l’imprimerie et de la langue allemande, répondirent aux aspirations à la réforme d’une grande part de l’Europe chrétienne. En l’espace de quelques années, l’Église, déjà fortement ébranlée, se déchira. Rapidement, Martin Luther se lança dans une traduction de la Bible en allemand : il traduisit en à peine onze semaines le Nouveau Testament. Le livre de l’Apocalypse fut illustré par Lucas Cranach l’Ancien. Luther s’attela ensuite à la traduction de l’Ancien Testament qu’il publia par morceaux dans les années suivantes. Il fallut attendre 1534 pour que paraisse, chez Hans Lu t à Wittenberg, une traduction complète de la Bible sous le titre Biblia das ist die gantze heilige schri t. Cette fois, Cranach et son atelier illustrèrent l’ensemble de l’ouvrage. Cette traduction connut alors un extraordinaire succès et t l’objet de très nombreuses rééditions, régulièrement illustrées par d’autres graveurs. L’une de celles-ci, illustrée par Virgil Solis et connue sous le nom de « Bible palatine », forme le point de départ de cette exposition. [less ▲]

This article reflects on the profound complexities of translating and interpreting ‘grief’, and emotions and responses to death more broadly, in multilingual, cross-cultural contexts. Drawing on qualitative research conducted in urban Senegal, West Africa, we discuss the exchange of meanings surrounding grief and death through language, including the process of translation, in its broadest sense, between multiple languages (Wolof, French, English). Our experiences demonstrate the crucial importance of involving interpreters and field researchers throughout the research process, to gain fundamental insight into the cultural nuances of indigenous languages and how these are translated and potentially re-framed in the process. We reflect on our iterative process of discussing emerging interpretations with participants in follow-up workshops and with our interpreter. This approach helped shed light on language use surrounding ‘grief’ and how this is bound up with wider socio-cultural norms which make particular emotions surrounding death and experiences/meanings of death and bereavement possible and ‘speak-able’. Our research calls for greater recognition in death and bereavement studies of the cultural specificity of conceptual frameworks developed in minority European socio-linguistic contexts and demonstrates the need for greater engagement with theoretical, empirical and methodological insights gained in diverse cultural contexts in the Majority world.

City branding practices have become widespread but few studies measure their effects on medium-sized cities. Through an analysis of the practices of city branding and internal and external images of the cities of Liege and Charleroi, this article points out the relative strengths and weaknesses of the images of each of the Walloon cities, among their businessmen, vis-a vis those of the other Walloon city. The images of these two cities are composites and branding policies are still in their infancy. These policies have followed a top-down approach which may explain the limited use of the two brands even if they use ideas shared by local entrepreneurs. However the research underlines the absence of opinions on certain characteristics of the cities or a negative view which often requires works in the field but also better communication. [less ▲]

N-Heterocyclic carbenes (NHCs) react readily with carbon disulfide to form stable, crystalline, zwitterionic adducts. In this review, we outline the various strategies that were applied to synthesize transition metal clusters based on such NHC•CS2 ligands. We also briefly survey their most salient structural features and catalytic properties. Because this research field is still in its infancy, only a limited number of structures containing metals from Group 7 (Mn and Re) and 8 (Fe and Ru) have been described so far. Homo- and heterobimetallic manganese and rhenium carbonyl clusters with the generic formula [MM'(CO)6(mu-kappa2-S,S'-kappa3-S,C,S'-S2C•NHC)] (MM' = Mn2, MnRe, or Re2) were most thoroughly investigated. Isolated examples of dinuclear iron and tetranuclear ruthenium compounds, in which the dithiocarboxylate unit underwent fragmentation, were also reported. Other related polymetallic entities recently elaborated through the use of azolium-2-dithiocarboxylate zwitterions and Group 11 metals (Cu and Au) include copper-based coordination polymers, gold nanoparticles, and self-assembled monolayers.

Themain objective of this study was to investigate the effect of combining a high-melting wax (sunflower wax or rice bran wax)with a low-melting wax (berrywax or BEW) on the crystallization and gelation behavior of the corresponding wax-based oleogels in rice bran oil (RBO). Sunflower wax (SW) and rice bran wax (RBW) have a similar chemical composition but a very different crystallization behavior. Therefore, SWand RBW were also combined in a wax-based oleogel to examine the occurrence of co-crystallization and/or crystal coexistence. The thermal and gelation behavior of the binary blends in rice bran oil (5% w/w total concentration of wax) were investigated with differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and rheological measurements, showing sequential crystallization and gelation for the SW/RBW : BEW wax-based oleogels and simultaneous crystallization and gelation for the SW : RBW wax-based oleogels. Oscillatory shear and hardness measurements revealed the reinforcement of the high-melting wax crystal network with the addition of the low-melting berry wax. X-ray diffraction (XRD) measurements in both the long-spacing and the short-spacing region showed the occurrence of crystal co-existence, rather than co-crystallization, which was confirmed with polarized light microscopy (PLM). Two different crystal morphologies could be discerned for all three combinations (RBW : SW, SW : BEW and RBW : BEW). We hypothesized that the improved rheological properties could be attributed to sintering, a process in which the low-melting BEW crystals form solid bonds between the crystals of the high-melting waxes. As such, a cohesive network is formed, resulting in an increased hardness of the bi-wax-based oleogels. This research provides the opportunity to minimize the amount of wax necessary in creating semi-solid materials with a wide variety in rheological and textural properties. [less ▲]

We present the results of a multiple organizational level analysis conceived to identify acclimative/ adaptive strategies exhibited by the seagrass Posidonia oceanica to the daily uctuations in the light environment, at contrasting depths. We assessed changes in photophysiological parameters, leaf respiration, pigments, and protein and mRNA expression levels. The results show that the diel oscillations of P. oceanica photophysiological and respiratory responses were related to transcripts and proteins expression of the genes involved in those processes and that there was a response asynchrony between shallow and deep plants probably caused by the strong di erences in the light environment. The photochemical pathway of energy use was more e ective in shallow plants due to higher light availability, but these plants needed more investment in photoprotection and photorepair, requiring higher translation and protein synthesis than deep plants. The genetic di erentiation between deep and shallow stands suggests the existence of locally adapted genotypes to contrasting light environments. The depth-speci c diel rhythms of photosynthetic and respiratory processes, from molecular to physiological levels, must be considered in the management and conservation of these key coastal ecosystems.

This paper presents an argument in favor of a “phenomenological” approach to intentionality. This approach, as I see it, involves the view that intentional facts are better expressed with the help of appearance words (“seems”, “appears”, “is similar to”, etc.). By contrast, what I call the “intentionalist approach” assumes that intentional facts are better expressed by intentional verbs. The argument is as follows. First, it is well-known that the use of intentional verbs to express typically intentional facts generates anomalies with respect to existential generalization, substitution of identicals, and the principle of excluded middle. Secondly, I argue that the use of appearance words does not generate the same anomalies, which suggests that appearance words are more appropriate to describe intentional facts. This, I conclude, is an argument for preferring the phenomenological to the intentionalist approach to intentionality. [less ▲]

This study investigated the ability of individuals with disordered gambling to imagine future events. Problem gamblers (n=35) and control participants (n=35) were asked to imagine positive and negative future events for three temporal distances (one week, one year, 5-10years). Then, a variety of phenomenological aspects of their future thoughts (e.g., sensory and contextual details, autonoetic consciousness) were rated. Compared to control subjects, problem gamblers generated fewer positive and negative events across all temporal distances, an impairment that was correlated to verbal fluency scores. Furthermore, problem gamblers rated imagined events as containing fewer sensory and contextual details, and lacking autonoetic consciousness. These findings demonstrate that problem gambling is associated with a reduced future-oriented mental time travel ability and, in particular, with diminished autonoetic consciousness when imagining future events.
