This paper studies the sustainability of the Smart City from the acceptability perspective. Assuming that there is a possibility for end-users to reject some of the Smart City principles and, consequently, to jeopardize its perenniality, we argue that studying how citizens perceive some of the Smart City concepts is a prerequisite for the assessment of the Smart City sustainability scheme. In this paper, we test the acceptability of the Smart City by confronting the theoretical concepts generally mobilized in the literature with the people’s actual perceptions. To this end, a short survey was distributed on the occasion of three Smart City events. This article analyses the obtained results in regard of three demographic factors (age, gender and professional background). It thus repositions chore concepts of the Smart City in regard of acceptability, and particularly in relation to the associated risks for its sustainability. [less ▲]

Hybrid organizational forms combine values and practices from different institutional domains, rendering them difficult to fit neatly into the structures of extant organizational forms. Since the work required to institutionalize a new hybrid organizational form may be beyond the resources and capabilities of individual organizations acting alone, we shift the focus to inter-organizational collective action. Using empirical data from a study of a European network of renewable energy cooperatives, we find that, in order to institutionalize the new hybrid organizational form, the network can contribute to overcome the legitimacy challenges inherent in organizational hybridity. In particular, the network builds field-level receptivity to institutional pluralism, collectively codifies the hybrid organizational form, and consolidates legitimation towards plural field-level audiences. In order to perform these institutionalization roles, the network itself becomes increasingly formalized and mobilizes mediating functions involving different types of resources, legitimacy and target audiences. The research advances knowledge of hybrid organizational forms and their collective institutionalization through inter-organizational networks. [less ▲]

Cabbage (Brassica oleracea L.) is a common vegetable whose production is severely limited by insect pest pressure in Western Africa. This study was conducted during the dry and rainy season in the south Benin to evaluate the potential of tropical basil (Ocimum gratissimum L.) for repelling cabbage pests (Hellula undalis Fabricius, Plutella xylostella L. and Spodoptera litto-ralis Boisduval). In a complete randomized block design with four replicates, the insect infestation were compared between three association modalities: (i) cabbage intercropped with tropical basil, (ii) cabbage plots surrounded by tropical basil and (iii) control (no basil in the cabbage area). The presence of tropical basil near cabbage plots significantly reduced insect pest abundance on cabbage. Damages were also less important on cabbage intercropped with tropical basil. Among both intercropping modalities, alternate rows showed the best results in terms of reducing pest populations and damages than compared to cabbage plots surrounded by tropical basil. [less ▲]

Né à Besançon, Jean-Jacques Boissard (1528-1602) arpente l’Europe. En Allemagne, en Prusse, en Italie, en Grèce, il dessine les reliefs antiques et entretient des échanges savants avec les plus grands érudits de son temps en partageant la passion archéologique et l’idéal humaniste. La communication approfondira les voyages romains de Boissard, ses rencontres, ses explorations, sa vision de Rome antique et moderne. En parcourant l’œuvre multiforme de l’antiquaire, collectionneur, faussaire, poète, moraliste bisontin, nous montrerons la manière dont l’auteur appréhende l’Antiquité et ses vestiges : données documentaires, mise en scène antiquisante, ou encore signes et reliques d’un passé supérieur.

La littérature néokantienne consacrée à la théorie platonicienne des Idées est surabondante. Elle a été alimentée par des questions profondes et a donné lieu, à son tour, à plusieurs polémiques importantes. Compte tenu de l’ampleur du dossier et de la variété des interprétations proposées, nous devrons renoncer, dans cette introduction, à brosser un tableau général de la réception néokantienne de Platon. Nous nous bornerons à en donner un aperçu introductif en mettant en évidence un petit nombre de thèses centrales et en mentionnant quelques aspects saillants des controverses que ces thèses ont suscitées.

A human biomonitoring study was carried out measuring the levels of endocrine disruptors in 252 participants (18-76 years old) recruited between February and May 2015 from the general population of Liege Province (Belgium). In this study, we reported the recent levels of cadmium and mercury in urine, some organochlorine pesticides and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) in serum, and their relations to demographic characteristics, lifestyle behaviors and dietary habits. The median urinary levels of mercury and cadmium were 0.81 µg/l and <0.5µg/l respectively. The mercury levels were higher in participants having at least 3 dental amalgams, and consuming sea fish more than once a week. Although our mercury levels in most participants were lower than some health-based guidelines, they were higher than in our neighboring countries where ban or restrictions on the dental amalgams use were implemented. Urinary cadmium levels in current smokers were significantly higher than former or never smokers, as well as non-smokers for passively exposed vs non-exposed ones. Median PCB-153 and -180 serum levels were 53.8 and 41.1 ng/g lipid respectively, but PCB-138 was below the limit of quantification of 0.15 µg/l in 49% of the samples. Among the organochlorine pesticides, 4,4’-dichlorodiphenyldichloroethylene (4,4’-DDE), beta-hexachlorohexane and hexachlorobenzene were positively detected respectively in 48%, 49% and 37% of the serum samples. Eventhough, a dramatic decrease in organochlorines levels was observed, at least 1 pesticide or PCB was detected in 96% of our population, and more than 50% of our samples were contaminated by 4 or more organochlorines. Age, body mass index, and breastfeeding duration were the most predictive determinants of pesticide or PCB serum concentrations, but not dietary habits. [less ▲]

Les cardinaux de couronne avaient pour fonction de défendre et de représenter les intérêts d’un État étranger auprès de la Curie. Cette activité leur conférait une place centrale et particulière dans le complexe réseau diplomatique, ecclésiastique et nobiliaire romain. À travers l’étude de quelques cas, nous examinerons leur rôle culturel en tant qu’organisateurs de fêtes et de cérémonies, manifestations essentielles à leur promotion sociale, événements où s’exerçaient les pratiques musicales et lieux d’expression de l’identité nationale. L’analyse de ces marqueurs identitaires nous permettra de vérifier l’existence d’une double culture ainsi que la construction d’un modèle de cardinal protecteur national à la cour de Rome, « grand théâtre du monde ».

Cet ouvrage analyse le parcours artistique d’un compositeur majeur de l’époque de Monteverdi, Sigismondo D’India (c. 1582-c. 1629), depuis l’Italie méridionale de ses origines jusqu’à son séjour à Rome et à Modène, où le musicien acheva son existence. En étudiant les villes, les cours, les princes protecteurs, les dédicataires et les lieux destinés à la musique, chacune des parties suit une étape de la carrière de D’India et redonne vie aux mondes de ce compositeur italien d’avant-garde. Apparaissent alors les thématiques du voyage, de la circularité et du croisement, lesquelles permettent de penser l’histoire de la musique comme une histoire à la fois des pratiques culturelles et de l’expérience musicale.

The pharmaceutical industry is highly regulated by quality policies. The concept of risk management is strongly integrated into the quality assurance system to ensure pharmaceuticals’ quality and patients’ safety. In the context of quality control, the detection of impurities in raw materials and finished products is a major concern. It can be challenging for analytical scientists to meet specificity/selectivity and sensitivity requirements. Obviously, separation techniques are widely used for the detection of impurities but the method development required to achieve Analytical Target Profile (ATP) concerns is often challenging. Therefore, to ensure pragmatic and systematic methods development and simultaneously manage the risk associated with analytical methods, the principles of Quality by Design (QbD) should be applied. This paper provides an overview of QbD principles and statistical strategies (mainly DoE-DS approach) which can be applied to impurity detection methods, as well as a review of the literature where QbD has been applied to these types of analytical methods.

Alfred Einstein soulignait en 1949 qu’« à Naples comme à Palerme, le baroque le plus extravagant fleurissait à l’église, à la cour et dans la musique ». En effet, la culture de la Méditerranée – immémorial carrefour de nombreuses civilisations – a donné naissance à un monde musical riche et singulier dans la période qui court de la fin de la Renaissance au début du Baroque et sur lequel il reste beaucoup à découvrir. Il en est de même pour Rome : la richesse de l’activité musicale s’y présentait sous les formes les plus éclectiques. La Ville Eternelle était alors en effet la cour la plus importante de la Péninsule, foyer culturel majeur et porte de l’Italie méridionale. Nous pouvons constater un récent regain d’intérêt pour la recherche archivistique et historique qui a permis, à travers de nombreux travaux et colloques, de jeter un regard neuf sur le milieu musical et culturel romain et méditerranéen de cette époque (musique vocale profane et sacrée, musique instrumentale, théâtre, institutions musicales, etc.). Ces travaux jettent les fondements d’une recherche qui ne demande qu’à être approfondie. [less ▲]
