Platelets contain growth factors released during their degranulation following activation. These growth factors promote tissue remodeling, wound healing and angiogenesis. Currently, the clinical effect of Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is still discussed or even controversial. Our researches have evaluated the effectiveness of PRP on the healing of animal tendons and human suffering from chronic jumper's knee. [less ▲]

When listening to operatic singers performances, our perception of vocal pitch accuracy is influenced by several acoustical parameters such as the fluctuation of the fundamental frequency (i.e vibrato). In the case of occasional singers, produced pitch is likewise not constant, but the fluctuations in such cases tend not to involve vibrato but to instead involve “scoops” at the beginning and ends of tone, as well as other forms of instability. However, little is known about the fluctuations that characterize occasional singers (including poor-pitch singers) and to what degree these fluctuations influence perception of pitch accuracy. We report results of ongoing research designed to address these issues. First, we describe a descriptive model used to identify perturbations of F0 in occasional singers that differ between accurate and poor-pitch singers. Next, we report results of recent experiments that explore the influence of the pitch fluctuations described by the model on the perception of pitch accuracy. [less ▲]

Cette brève communication visait à introduire et à contextualiser cinq séquences didactiques articulées autour de la notion de genre. Ces séquences, conçues et mises en pratique par d'anciens étudiants de l'ULg dans le cadre de l'AESS/du Master à finalité didactique ou du CAPAES, portaient sur le débat régulé (anglais), le reader digest (anglais et néerlandais), l'entretien d'embauche (espagnol), la Kurzgeschichte (allemand), le Krimi (allemand/langue maternelle). Cette introduction a également permis de rappeler les grandes phases du canevas didactique par situation-problème. [less ▲]

A decision support system (DSS) involving an approach for predicting wheat leaf rust (WLR) infection and progress based on night weather variables (i.e., air temperature, relative humidity, and rainfall) and a mechanistic model for leaf emergence and development simulation (i.e., PROCULTURE) was tested in order to schedule fungicide time spray for controlling leaf rust progress in wheat fields. Experiments including a single fungicide treatment based upon the DSS along with double and triple treatment were carried out over the 2007–2009 cropping seasons in four representative Luxembourgish wheat field locations. The study showed that the WLR occurrences and severities differed according to the site, cultivar, and year. We also found out that the single fungicide treatment based on the DSS allowed a good protection of the three upper leaves of susceptible cultivars in fields with predominant WLR occurrences. The harvested grain yield was not significantly different from that of the double and triple fungicide-treated plots (P < 0.05). Such results could serve as basis or be coupled to cost-effective and environmentally friendly crop management systems in operational context. [less ▲]

We report a method for achieving controlled dispersion of graphene oxide (GO) in poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) via the precipitation polymerization process in a water/ methanol mixture. GO acts as a surfactant and adsorbs on the interface between polymerized PMMA particles and solvent mixture. Scanning electron and transmission electron microscopy confirmed that the precipitate consists of polymer particles (<1 μm) surrounded by the GO sheets. Compression molding of the precipitate yields a polymer nanocomposite with the GO organized into a regularly spaced 3D network which percolates at 0.2 wt % GO. Simple thermal reduction of the GO sheets dispersed in PMMA at relatively low temperature (210 °C) achieved electrical conductivity higher than 10−2 S/m at 0.4 wt % of GO. Parallel dielectric and rheological characterization demonstrated that the thermal reduction is a quite fast process without significant degradation of the polymer. The study should open up new opportunities in the design of GO-based polymer nanocomposites. [less ▲]
