Les maladies dites rares affectent moins d’une personne sur 2000 selon les chiffres de l'Union Européenne. Outre ce faible taux de prévalence, elles sont définies comme faisant généralement l'objet d'une insuffisance de connaissance et de reconnaissance, qui conduit souvent à des situations d'errance diagnostique et thérapeutique pour les patients et leurs proches. Ainsi, ceux-ci sont nombreux à se regrouper dans des associations qui visent à guider quelque peu les personnes concernées dans leurs parcours et à améliorer leur qualité de vie. S'inscrivant dans le champ des sciences sociales, et plus particulièrement des Science & Technology Studies et de l'anthropologie de la santé et de la maladie, cette recherche doctorale (en cours) explore les activités d’associations de patients et de proches formées autour de maladies rares en Belgique. Elle se base sur une ethnographie multi-site qui implique notamment des entretiens biographiques avec des personnes engagées. Ce sont des récits de parcours et d'expériences, dans lesquels les personnes ont raconté les manières dont elles se sont trouvées concernées par certaines maladies, les raisons qui les ont conduit à fonder ou à rejoindre une association, ainsi que les enjeux de cet engagement tant sur les plans individuels que collectifs. L'étude des récits des patients et des proches engagés montre qu'ils constituent en eux-mêmes de véritables ressources mobilisées dans les activités des associations de maladies rares. De fait, celles-ci apparaissent comme des espaces de production et de mise en circulation de certains types de récits qui visent entre autres à caractériser la "rareté" d'une maladie et à construire une catégorie univoque de "maladie rare". Les associations travaillent à identifier des problématiques communes, puis élaborer des missions susceptibles de bénéficier à tous au-delà de la multiplicité des personnes, des situations, des conceptions et des expériences vécues. Dans une approche comparative des récits des parcours et des expériences individuelles de représentants de différentes associations, cette communication visait à étudier le fond et la forme de ces récits en vue de comprendre les logiques de leur mobilisation collective pour une catégorisation de la "maladie rare". Plus particulièrement, il s'agissait d'interroger l'articulation entre la singularité des récits et la certaine logique collective qu'ils reflètent. Comment les expériences sont-elles échangées au sein des associations ? Comment sont-elles alignées les unes par rapport aux autres pour en faire des ressources mobilisables collectivement ? Comment est ainsi construite la catégorie de "maladie rare" ? Quels sont les éléments qui font sens et qu’est-ce qui, à l’inverse, se perd dans ce passage de l’individuel au collectif ? Par ailleurs, quels sont les rapports entre les récits des patients et des proches engagés et les contextes sociaux, politiques et médicaux plus larges dans lesquels ils s'inscrivent ? [less ▲]

Understanding the formation and evolution of giant planets (≥1 M[SUB]Jup[/SUB]) at wide orbital separation (≥5 AU) is one of the goals of direct imaging. Over the past 15 yr, many surveys have placed strong constraints on the occurrence rate of wide-orbit giants, mostly based on non-detections, but very few have tried to make a direct link with planet formation theories. In the present work, we combine the results of our previously published VLT/NaCo large program with the results of 12 past imaging surveys to constitute a statistical sample of 199 FGK stars within 100 pc, including three stars with sub-stellar companions. Using Monte Carlo simulations and assuming linear flat distributions for the mass and semi-major axis of planets, we estimate the sub-stellar companion frequency to be within 0.75-5.70% at the 68% confidence level (CL) within 20-300 AU and 0.5-75 M[SUB]Jup[/SUB], which is compatible with previously published results. We also compare our results with the predictions of state-of-the-art population synthesis models based on the gravitational instability (GI) formation scenario with and without scattering. We estimate that in both the scattered and non-scattered populations, we would be able to detect more than 30% of companions in the 1-75 M[SUB]Jup[/SUB] range (95% CL). With the threesub-stellar detections in our sample, we estimate the fraction of stars that host a planetary system formed by GI to be within 1.0-8.6% (95% CL). We also conclude that even though GI is not common, it predicts a mass distribution of wide-orbit massive companions that is much closer to what is observed than what the core accretion scenario predicts. Finally, we associate the present paper with the release of the Direct Imaging Virtual Archive (DIVA), a public database that aims at gathering the results of past, present, and future direct imaging surveys. Based on observations collected at the European Southern Observatory, Chile (ESO Large Program 184.C-0157 and Open Time 089.C-0137A and 090.C-0252A). [less ▲]

L’hyper-sexualisation actuelle de l’espace public et la consommation de matériel pornographique semble avoir un impact sur le développement psycho-sexuel adolescent, la tolérance aux pratiques sexuelles parallèles et l’expérimentation précoce et variée de ces pratiques. Différentes recherches ont été menées auprès d’un panel de plus de 300 adolescents. Les résultats, présentés en synthèses sous forme d’un poster, permettent de rendre une photographie actuelle des pratiques sexuelles adolescentes au regard de la littérature scientifique. Il apparait notamment que 80% des jeunes interrogés se disent consommateurs réguliers de contenus pornographiques. Cette consommation pornographique semble en lien avec le fait d’être plus ouvert aux questions en matière de sexualité, la diversification des pratiques sexuelles, le nombre de partenaires sexuels ou encore le recours à des relations alternatives de types « fuckfsriends » ou « sexting ». La mise en parallèle des pratiques adolescentes en matière de sexualité et de la consommation de pornographie internet a également permis de tenter de répondre à la double interrogation ; L’hyper-sexualisation de l’espace public augmente-t-il la tolérance des jeunes en matière de sexualité ? La pornographie internet influence-t-elle les représentations et pratiques des adolescents en matière de sexualité ? Par extension, cette compilation de résultats, nous a amené à envisager le lien existant entre la consommation précoce et accrue de pornographie chez les adolescents, leur seuil de tolérance aux différentes pratiques sexuelles mises en scène dans ces contenus et la propension que ces jeunes ont à expérimenter ces pratiques, parfois déviantes, au risque de s’inscrire dans la transgression.

Though Superconductor/Ferromagnet hybrids is a widely studied system, application of hard magnetic materials as sources of vortex pinning remains relatively unexplored. They offer a number of advantages over softer magnetic materials, like greater stability and larger magnetic field amplitudes. Recently, a promising technique, thermomagnetic patterning (TMP), has been developed to prepare micromagnets, which serve as micro flux sources to produce magnetic fields spatially modulated at the micron scale. Permanent magnetic structures prepared using TMP present an interesting and so far unexplored option for controlled artificial pinning. We have investigated the vortex matter in superconductor/TMP micromagnet heterostructures (Nb-NdFeB) using quantitative Magneto-Optical Imaging (MOI). Comprehensive protocols have been developed for calibrating and converting Faraday rotation data acquired by MOI to magnetic field maps. These protocols reveal the comparatively weaker magnetic response of the superconductor from the background of larger fields associated with the magnetic layer in its vicinity. Further, TMP micromagnet structures have been imprinted in a permalloy (Py) layer following a protocol reported earlier to obtain flexible magnetic landscapes for flux guidance in a Nb layer below it. Both smooth flux penetration and vortex avalanches in Nb are observed to be strongly influenced by the micromagnetic patterns. Our study offers new insights into the peculiarities of the vortex state in these superconductor-micromagnet heterostructures. [less ▲]

The use of Electro Dynamic Fragmentation (EDF) enables selective fragmentation of materials through generating electrical discharges as a means of fracturing. Liberated materials can be thus processed downstream in a more efficient way especially when value-added End-of-Life (EoL) electronic equipment is recycled. The aim of this study was to assess the benefits of the EDF technology towards processing of EoL printed wiring boards (PWBs) in view their recyclability. Printed wiring boards were comminuted using EDF at three different settings and with a hammer mill for comparative experiment. The products coming out were characterized by optical microscopy, SEM and liberation oriented leaching. Subsamples from the various EDF stages were inspected to investigate the progress of cracks and degree of copper layers exposure. The different energy levels used during the EDF processing have resulted in different degrees of PWBs damages, starting from components removal to entire structure perturbation and size reduction. EDF has resulted in generation of a lesser amount of fines, however the optimal approach in view energy efficient post-processing of the studied PWBs was the combination between single-stage EDF for components removal only with subsequent shredding of the depopulated boards.

During service encounters, customer contact employees often need to deliver bad news: unexpected information contrary to the customer’s wellbeing. For example, technicians regularly tell customers that none of the data on their computer hard drive can be retrieved, veterinarians often inform owners that a beloved pet has cancer and cannot be cured, and airline staff regularly tell travelers that their flights have been cancelled due to bad weather. For some customer-contact employees, delivering bad news is an unavoidable, delicate, and emotionally-charged task that occurs regularly. Disclosing bad news can be highly stressful and perhaps detrimental for (1) customers, (2) customer- contact employees, and (3) service firms in general. Accordingly, it is crucial for service organizations to better understand bad news encounters (i.e., situations during which customer contact employees must deliver negative information) to better equip their managers and employees to deliver such news to customers. The topic of how to best deliver bad news has been broached in various disciplines, including the medical literature (e.g., Baile et al. 2000, 2002; Rosenbaum et al. 2004), the management literature (e.g., Bies 2013; Kothari, Shu, and Wysocki 2009), and the sociology literature (e.g., Clark and LaBeff 1986). These literatures have (1) examined the attitudes and emotions of the discloser of extreme bad news in very specific contexts, (2) identified the tactics used by disclosers, and (3) developed protocols for delivering extremely negative information. Surprisingly, studies of bad news delivered by contact employees are scarce in service research. Service failure and service recovery have received much attention, but this literature has two major gaps when it comes to understanding the delivery of negative information. First, service recovery research generally skips over the initial part of the process where employees first communicate bad news to customers, and instead focuses primarily on the process involved to resolve the situation. Second, there are many situations in which employees must deliver negative information to customers where it is clear that a service failure has not occurred (e.g., informing a customer that his 30-year old dishwasher is beyond repair). We use the critical incident technique (CIT) (Flanagan 1954; Gremler 2004) to analyze 200 incidents where service employees from a wide range of service sectors had to deliver bad news to a customer.

This work aims at developing a computational stochastic multiscale methodology to quantify the uncertainties of the adhesive contact problems due to capillary effects and van der Waals forces in MEMS. Because the magnitudes of the adhesive forces strongly depend on the surface interaction distances, which in turn evolve with the roughness of the contacting surfaces, the involved structural behaviors suffer from a scatter. To numerically predict the probabilistic behaviors of structures involving adhesion, the proposed method introduces stochastic meso-scale random apparent contact forces which can be integrated into a stochastic finite element model. Because the evaluation of their realizations is expensive, a generator for the random apparent contact force using the polynomial chaos expansion is constructed in an efficient way. [less ▲]

In 1994, during the International Conference on Population and Development convened by the United Nations in Cairo, a shocking video was shown, realized by an operator of CNN and depicting the circumcision of a ten-year-old child living in this very same city. Discourses around female circumcision were not new in Egypt and in the international community, but what was considered as a new episode of a recurrent scandal (not the last one indeed) led to enhance the “war against bad government” (Foucault 2003: 38). A war fought by means of ideological weapons produced by various forms of expert knowledge among which the medical and the feminist ones. The assignment of a value to the state of integrity of the female body and to the women freedom of choice, both designed according to Western canons, led to different actions to “save” Egyptian women. In this context, development agencies foster a widespread representation of the victim, constituted by the woman mutilated body. Such representation is functional to put in place programs which do not guarantee a freedom of choice, but rather require adherence to another female model, one that defines the "modern" woman. My article, based on ethnographic experience, aims at highlighting the complexity of such dynamics and the role played by humanitarianism within them. Female body becomes the arena where local and international economic powers operate, disregarding a real understanding of the practice, its meanings and its eventual change. [less ▲]

Many countries have pledged to reduce greenhouse gases. In this context, the dairy sector is one of the identified sectors to adapt production circumstances to address socio-environmental constraints due to its large carbon footprint related to CH4 emission. This study aimed mainly to estimate (1) the genetic parameters of 2 milk mid-infrared-based CH4 proxies [predicted daily CH4 emission (PME, g/d), and log-transformed predicted CH4 intensity (LMI)] and (2) their genetic correlations with milk production traits [milk (MY), fat (FY), and protein (PY) yields] from first- and second-parity Holstein cows. A total of 336,126 and 231,400 mid-infrared CH4 phenotypes were collected from 56,957 and 34,992 first- and second-parity cows, respectively. The PME increased from the first to the second lactation (433 vs. 453 g/d) and the LMI decreased (2.93 vs. 2.86). We used 20 bivariate random regression test-day models to estimate the variance components. Moderate heritability values were observed for both CH4 traits, and those values decreased slightly from the first to the second lactation (0.25 ± 0.01 and 0.22 ± 0.01 for PME; 0.18 ± 0.01 and 0.17 ± 0.02 for LMI). Lactation phenotypic and genetic correlations were negative between PME and MY in both first and second lactations (−0.07 vs. −0.07 and −0.19 vs. −0.24, respectively). More close scrutiny revealed that relative increase of PME was lower with high MY levels even reverting to decrease, and therefore explaining the negative correlations, indicating that higher producing cows could be a mitigation option for CH4 emission. The PME phenotypic correlations were almost equal to 0 with FY and PY for both lactations. However, the genetic correlations between PME and FY were slightly positive (0.11 and 0.12), whereas with PY the correlations were slightly negative (−0.05 and −0.04). Both phenotypic and genetic correlations between LMI and MY or PY or FY were always relatively highly negative (from −0.21 to −0.88). As the genetic correlations between PME and LMI were strong (0.71 and 0.72 in first and second lactation), the selection of one trait would also strongly influence the other trait. However, in animal breeding context, PME, as a direct quantity CH4 proxy, would be preferred to LMI, which is a ratio trait of PME with a trait already in the index. The range of PME sire estimated breeding values were 22.1 and 29.41 kg per lactation in first and second parity, respectively. Further studies must be conducted to evaluate the effect of the introduction of PME in a selection index on the other traits already included in this index, such as, for instance, fertility or longevity.

Bereits im vergangenen interdisziplinären Workshop für NachwuchswissenschaftlerInnen, den die Forschungsplattform Elfriede Jelinek 2014 an der Universität Wien veranstaltet hatte (Elfriede Jelinek „Es ist sprechen und aus“), hatte sich eine Arbeitsgruppe intermedialen Fragestellungen in Jelineks Werk gewidmet. Damals ging es vornehmlich um Jelineks Essays zum Film (Susanne Teutsch), ihr Stück Rechnitz (der Würgeengel) (Bettina Wodianka, Aline Vennemann), sowie ihren Roman Die Klavierspielerin (Beate Schirrmacher). Während die Kurztexte und Rechnitz auch dieses Jahr von der Arbeitsgruppe unter Betracht gezogen wurden, kamen zwei Theaterstücke neu hinzu: das bisher wenig beachtete Kein Licht (2011) und das hingegen viel besprochene Die Schutzbefohlenen (2013). Diese Auswahl bestätigt den aktuellen Fokus auf Elfriede Jelineks Theater insbesondere auf ihre aktuellsten Stücke. Thematisch überschnitten sich die Diskussionen der zwei Gruppen eindeutig hinsichtlich der Frage von Körper und Performativität, sowie von Vermittlung und Übersetzung (ausgehend von der so bedeutungsvollen Figur des Boten in Rechnitz). Jedoch geschah auch eine Verlagerung von der medialen und zeitlichen Vermittlung (Übertragung zurückliegender Ereignisse in Körper und Sprache) hin zu einer kulturellen und räumlichen Vermittlung (Übertragung von Ereignissen zwischen verschiedenen Kontinenten). Ähnliches geschah auch bezüglich der Kernfrage der Intermedialität, die in eine breitere historische Perspektive gesetzt wurde (Jelinek und Leonardo da Vinci). Der Nachdruck lag weniger auf medialen Verknüpfungen innerhalb eines Kunstwerkes als auf den Beziehungen zwischen Kunstwerken verschiedener Sparten. Diese Tatsache erklärt auch den im Vergleich zu 2014 leicht veränderten Namen der Arbeitsgruppe, nämlich „(Inter)Medialität“. [less ▲]

YBCO tubes of ~ 10 mm diameter closed at one extremity were engineered by a Buffer-Aided Top Seeded Melt Growth fabrication process (BA-TSMG). These tubes can act as efficient “dc” magnetic shields and are observed to reduce axial flux densities of 1.5 T by a factor of 100 at 20 K. Such performances are comparable in magnitude to the record threshold inductions reported for bulk MgB2 and Bi-2212 materials at lower temperatures. Magnetic shielding measurements for open and closed tubes at 77 K also show that the presence of the cap improves substantially the shielding performance at the closed extremity since it reduces the penetration through the open end. This fabrication technique is extremely promising for shielding “dc” stray fields generated by HTS magnets operated in a temperature range obtained by cryocoolers, liquid hydrogen (20 K) or liquid neon (27 K).

Laser ultrasonics is a technique currently studied for nondestructive inspection of aerospace composite structures based on carbon fibers. It combines a pulsed laser impacting the surface generates an ultrasound inside the material, through the nondestructive thermoelastic effect. Second a detection interferometer probes the impacted point in order to measure the displacement of the surface resulting from the emitted ultrasound wave and the echo coming back from the different interfaces of the structure. Laser ultrasonics is of interest for inspecting complex shaped composites. We have studied the possibility of using frequency doubled YAG laser for the generation and which is fiber-coupled, together with a fiber-coupled interferometric probe using a YAG laser in the NIR. Our final system is a lightweight probe attached to a robot arm and which is able to scan complex shapes. The performances of the system are compared for different wavelengths of generations. Also we have studied some experimental parameters of interest such as tolerance to angle and focus distance, and different geometries of generation beams. We show some examples of inspection of reference parts with known defects. In particular C-scans of curved composites structures are presented. [less ▲]

In order to explore some potential insect sources of food lipids, the lipid compositions of three Orthopterans (Acheta domesticus, Conocephalus discolor and Chorthippus parallelus) were analyzed and compared with those of Tenebrio molitor larvae. A. domesticus, Co. discolor, Ch. parallelus and T. molitor larvae were found to contain approximately 15%, 13%, 10% and 32% lipids on dry weight, respectively. The lipids from three Orthopterans contain much higher amounts of essential fatty acids than those of T. molitor larvae. The two Orthopterans of the suborder Ensifera i.e., A. domesticus and Co. discolor contain linoleic acid in major quantities, while Ch. parallelus of the suborder Caelifera, contain α-linolenic acid in major quantities. The consumption of linoleic and α-linolenic fatty acid is linked with numerous health promoting effects. The factors that contribute to differences in fatty acid profiles of these insects are being discussed. At last the nutritional parameters including polyunsaturated to saturated and omega 6 to omega 3 fatty acid ratios of these insect lipids are also being discussed to understand the potential role of these lipids in human nutrition.
