Climate change is widely accepted to be one of the most critical problems faced by the Huang-Huai-Hai Plain (3H Plain), which is a region in which there is an over-exploitation of groundwater region and where future warmer and drought conditions might intensify crop water demand. In this study, the spatiotemporal patterns of ET0 and primary driving meteorological variables were investigated based on a historical and RCP 8.5 scenario daily data set from 40 weather stations over the 3H Plain using linear regression, spline interpolation method, a partial derivative analysis and multivariate regression. The results indicated a negative trend in all the analysis periods (except spring) of the past 54 years of which only summer and the entire year were statistically significant (p < 0.01) with slopes of -1.09 and -1.30 mm·a-1 respectively. In contrast, a positive trend was observed in all four seasons and the entire year under the RCP 8.5 scenario, with the biggest increment equal to 1.36 mm·a-1 in summer and an annual increment of 3.37 mm·a-1. The spatial patterns of the seasonal and annual ET0 exhibited the lowest values in southeastern regions and the highest values in northeastern parts of Shandong Province, probably because of the combined effects of various meteorological variables over the past 54 years. Relative humidity (RH) together with solar radiation (RS) were detected to be the main climatic factors controlling the reduction of ET0 in summer, autumn, and the entire year on the 3H Plain. ET0 in spring was mainly sensitive to changes in RS and RH, whereas ET0 in winter was most sensitive to changes in wind speed (WS) and decreased due to declining RH. Under the future RCP 8.5 scenario, the annual ET0 distribution displays a rich spatial structure with a clear northeast-west gradient and anarea with low values in the southern regions, which is similarly detected in spring and summer. The most sensitive and primary controlling variables with respect to the increment of future ET0 are in the first place RS and then mean temperature in spring, while turn to be mean temperature and then RS in summer. In autumn, future ET0 is most sensitive to RH changes. WS and RH are the controlling variables for ET0 in winter. Annual future ET0 is most sensitive to RH changes and accordingly RS is responsible for the predicted increment of the annual ET0. Better understanding of current and future spatiotemporal patterns of ET0 and of the regional response of ET0 to climate change can contribute to the establishment of a policy to realize a more efficient use of water resources and a sustainable agricultural production in the 3H Plain.

Un grand nombre de travaux se sont, depuis Mac Luhan, attachés à montrer que les supports, loin d’être les vecteurs indifférents de messages ou d’informations, endossent un rôle déterminant dans les processus de communication, et tout particulièrement dans le domaine des arts et de la culture. L’objectif de cet article est de déterminer, par le biais de l’objet d’étude que constitue le médium vidéoludique, l’influence que le support peut avoir sur le message, mais aussi, plus largement, sur les usages des joueurs.

This paper aims to define and describe the ways of acquiring and transmitting medical knowledge in Greco-Roman Antiquity through an analysis of literary, archaeological, and, primarily, papyrological sources. The methods and practices revealed by these sources include experiment, analogy, and imitation, oral and written teaching, the composition and copying of books (illustrated or not), as well as the elaboration of commentaries, abridgments, questionnaires, and word lists. These modes of knowledge transfer were intended not only for medical practitioners and students, but also for philiatroi, for generally educated people, as well as for scribes, and eventually tachygraphers, of medical books.

Depuis presque vingt ans maintenant, le champ des littéracies académique suscite de très nombreuses publications, comme en témoigne la liste non exhaustive qui suit : Lidil n°17 (1998), Fintz (1998), Le français aujourd’hui n°125 (1999), Pollet (2001, 2014), Lidil n°24 (2001), Spirale n°29 (2002), Enjeux n°53 et 54 (2002), Scheepers (2002, 2009, 2013), Pratiques nos121-122 (2004), Lidil n°34 (2006), Donahue (2008), Diptyque n°18 (2010), Lidil n°41 (2010), Blaser & Pollet (2010), Tutin & Grossmann (2013), Gravet (2014)… Or il faut bien constater que rares sont les travaux consacrés aux brouillons estudiantins, si l’on excepte quelques références clairsemées, parmi lesquelles Alcorta (2001), Crinon & Guigue (2003), Scheepers (2009)… Pourtant, nombreuses furent les études dévolues aux brouillons d’écoliers, de collégiens et de lycéens : Boré (2000), Reuter (2000, 2004), Alcorta (2001), Fabre-Cols (2001), Doquet (2011), Kervyn & Faux (2014), Crinon & Marin (2014), Kervyn (à paraitre)… Ce à quoi il faut ajouter le numéro 144 du Français aujourd’hui (2004), le numéro 55 de Recherches (2011), les numéros 105-106 de Pratiques (2000) ou le numéro 10 de Repères (1994). Dès 1996, Sylvie Plane, bientôt rejointe par Jean-Paul Bernié (1998), en vient à considérer que, dans le champ de la recherche, tout semble se passer comme si l’on était passé d’une focalisation sur le produit fini à une centration sur l’activité de production. Dès lors, le brouillon semble définitivement exhumé des poubelles où il était trop longtemps resté cantonné. De la même manière, la dissertation, genre scolaire par excellence, a donné lieu à de très nombreuses études : Delforce (1985, 1992), Delcambre (1997), Donahue (2008), Schneuwly & Dolz (2009), Scheepers (2013), sans compter le numéro 68 de Pratiques (1990) ou le numéro 123 du Français aujourd’hui (1998). Mais, à notre connaissance tout du moins, seules Francine Darras et Isabelle Delcambre (1989-2011) se sont penchées sur les brouillons de dissertations. Pour ce faire, elles ont pris en compte vingt copies de lycéens de seconde. Par conséquent, la finalité de cette contribution est de croiser les apports des recherches inscrites dans le champ des littéracies académiques aux travaux dévolus aux brouillons et aux dissertations pour analyser les brouillons de dissertations produits par nos étudiants de troisième année du baccalauréat en langues et lettres françaises, romanes, germaniques et classiques. La principale question qui s’inscrit au cœur de notre réflexion sera la suivante : quelles stratégies de brouillonnement mobilisent les étudiants pour produire une dissertation lors d’un examen ?

Background: Severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID) can be caused by loss-of-function mutations in genes involved in the DNA recombination machinery, such as RAG1, RAG2 or DCLRE1C. Defective DNA recombination causes a developmental block in T cells and B cells, resulting in high susceptibility to infections. Hypomorphic mutations in the same genes can also give a partial loss of T cells, in a spectrum including leaky SCID (LS) and Omenn syndrome (OS). These patients not only develop life-threatening infections due to immunodeficiency, but also develop inflammatory/autoimmune conditions due to the presence of autoreactive T cells. Objective: We sought to develop a preclinical model that fully recapitulates the symptoms of LS/OS patients including a model for testing therapeutic intervention. Methods: We generated a novel mutant mouse (Dclre1c leaky) that develops a LS phenotype. Mice were monitored for diseases and immune phenotype and immune function were evaluated using flow cytometry, ELISA and histology. Results: Dclre1c leaky mice present with a complete blockade of B cell differentiation, with a leaky block in T cell differentiation resulting in an oligoclonal TCR repertoire and enhanced cytokine secretion. Dclre1c leaky mice also developed inflammatory symptoms including wasting, dermatitis, colitis, hypereosinophilia and high IgE levels. Development of a preclinical murine model for LS allowed the testing of potential treatment, with administration of CTLA4-Ig reducing disease symptoms and immunological disturbance, resulting in increased survival. Conclusion: These data suggest that CTLA4-Ig should be evaluated as a potential treatment of inflammatory symptoms in LS and OS patients. [less ▲]
