La référence à la notion de médiation dans différents pans de la société, notamment dans l’action publique, s’accompagne de nombreux discours et apports présumés. Toutefois, ceux-ci s’avèrent peu opérationnalisables en situation, le travail de nouveaux agents s’exposant à une éventuelle instrumentalisation. Ces enjeux seront interrogés dans ce chapitre en trois parties prenant leur source dans une recherche doctorale consacrée à la médiation en milieu scolaire. D’abord, la notion de médiation sera contextualisée, dans un cadre sociétal large et dans la sphère éducative, en soulignant deux tendances contrastées. Ensuite, un aperçu du travail des médiateurs, principaux acteurs de la médiation scolaire en Belgique francophone, et de l’utilisation de leurs services sera proposé afin d’illustrer plus concrètement cette tension. Enfin, nous discuterons de ce contraste afin d’en pointer le lien fondamental avec la notion même de médiation. [less ▲]

PURPOSE: To experimentally compare the optical performance of three types of hydrophobic intraocular lenses (IOLs): extended depth of focus, bifocal, and trifocal. METHODS: The tested IOLs were: TECNIS ZMB00 (bifocal; Abbott Medical Optics, Abbott Park, IL), TECNIS Symfony ZXR00 (extended depth of focus; Abbott Medical Optics), and FineVision GFree hydrophobic (trifocal; PhysIOL, Liège, Belgium). Their surface topography was analyzed by optical microscopy. Modulation transfer function (MTF) and spherical aberrations were determined on optical bench for variable pupil apertures and with two cornea models (0 μm and +0.28 μm). United States Air Force target imaging was analyzed for different focal points (near, intermediate, and far). Point spread function (PSF) and halos were quantified and compared. RESULTS: The three lenses presented step-like optic topography. For a pupil size of 3 mm or greater, clearly distinctive MTF peaks were observed for all lenses: two peaks for the extended depth of focus and bifocal lenses with +1.75 and +4.00 diopters (D) addition, respectively, and three peaks for the trifocal lens with +1.75 and +3.50 addition for intermediate and near vision, respectively. The extended depth of focus and bifocal lens had slightly higher MTF at best focus with the +0.28 μm cornea model than with the 0 μm model, whereas the trifocal lens was likely to be more independent of the corneal spherical aberrations.CONCLUSIONS: It appears that the three lenses rely on light diffraction for their optical performance, presenting halos with comparable intensities. For small pupil apertures (< 3 mm), the MTF peaks for the far and intermediate focal distances of the trifocal and extended depth of focus lenses overlap, but the trifocal lens presented an additional MTF peak for the near focal points.

The recent canonization of Yoshihiro Tatsumi and the reception of his comics in the Anglophone world is intimately linked to Adrian Tomine. Since the early 2000s, the cartoonist and illustrator has edited, in collaboration with Drawn and Quarterly, the English translations of Tatsumi's works, from his early graphic novels to his short stories from the 60s and 70s to his latest productions. If Tomine is above all known for his own comics, he tried to avoid putting himself at the forefront of these editions. Looking back on this experience, he shares some of the choices and decisions that guided his editorial and design work on Tatsumi's comics. [less ▲]

Recently, Liu et al. (2015) proposed a method to characterize activity sequences stemming from activity-travel diaries. The framework is structured as follows: from an extracted set of activity sequences, (a) the occurrence probabilities of the different activities are determined as well as their sequential order for aligning the activity sequences. Then, (b) profile Hidden Markov Models (pHMM) are defined based on the previous output. This technique is interesting given the fact that it is also able to include the irregular activities and, as a result, their derived trips. In this context, thinking about integration with an agent-based micro-simulation model requires, as a preliminary step, an uncertainty quantification analysis in order to measure the variability of the outcome. This approach is all the more necessary when agent-based micro-simulation is used to predict mid- and long-term system states. [less ▲]

En s’appuyant sur quelques expériences européennes et notamment celle de l’Université de Liège, pionnière en matière d’obligation de formation pour les encadrants du supérieur en Belgique, ce chapitre tente d’éclairer les défis majeurs qui attendent les enseignants ou conseillers pédagogiques au détour de leur conception d’un programme de formation pour enseignants. Il aborde tout d’abord l’intérêt d’étudier les besoins ou en tout cas de définir un cap institutionnel clair et partagé en matière de formation des enseignants en interne. Il propose quelques réflexions quant au choix du public-cible de ces formations, de leurs contenus et méthodes, de leur durée et de leurs animateurs. Il aborde ensuite les questions des incitants à la participation des enseignants et de l’impact de ces formations avant d’ouvrir sur quelques pistes de discussion. [less ▲]

Purpose The purpose of this paper is to gain from experimental tests an insight into the failure mode of slender steel columns subjected to fire. The tests will also be used to validate a numerical model. Design/methodology/approach A series of experimental fire tests were conducted on eight full-scale steel columns made of slender I-shaped Class 4 sections. Six columns were made of welded sections (some prismatic and some tapered members), and two columns were made of hot rolled sections. The nominal length of the columns was 2.7 meters with the whole length being heated. The load was applied at ambient temperature after which the temperature was increased under constant load. The load was applied concentrically on some tests and with an eccentricity in other tests. Heating was applied by electrical resistances enclosed in ceramic pads. Numerical simulations were performed with the software SAFIR® using shell elements. Findings The tests have allowed determining the appropriate method of application of the electrical heating system for obtaining a uniform temperature distribution in the members. Failure of the columns during the tests occurred by combination of local and global buckling. The numerical model reproduced correctly the failure modes as well as the critical temperatures. Originality/value The numerical model that has been validated has been used in subsequent parametric analyses performed to derive design equations to be used in practice. This series of test results can be used by the scientific community to validate their own numerical or analytical models for the fire resistance of slender steel columns. [less ▲]

The optimal method to prepare endometrium before frozen embryo transfer (FET) is not yet established. We retrospectively studied 4496 FET and detailed pregnancy and miscarriage rates in three groups of patients according to the endometrium preparation they have followed before their successive FET: clomifene citrate (CC, group 1), artificial cycle (AC, group 2) or switch between CC and AC (group 3). The overall pregnancy rates per transfer were 24.3, 20.8 and 17.3% while the miscarriage rates reached 23.2, 29.8 and 42.5%, respectively. Group 1 experienced the highest ongoing pregnancy rate (18.6%), the lowest being observed in group 3 (10.0%, p50.001). Here we propose several alternatives to improve our AC protocol (group 2) that seemed less effective than CC (group 1) and we consider the use of a gonadotrophinstimulated treatment for patients with the lowest reproductive outcomes (group 3).

Au cours des dernières décennies, l’intervalle vêlage des vaches laitières a eu tendance à s’allonger au niveau mondial, européen et belge. Les causes sont multiples : évolution du système de production laitière, augmentation du niveau de production,… Les conséquences sont nombreuses également mais se traduisent-elles par un impact économique pour l’éleveur laitier ? La recherche présentée aujourd’hui se base sur près de 1800 bilans comptables de 400 exploitations laitières, fournis par le service technico-économique de l’Association Wallonne de l’Elevage, entre 2007 et 2014, pour déterminer l’impact économique de la durée de l’intervalle vêlage et définir l’optimum technico-économique de ce paramètre de management. Faut-il garder en tête « le veau par vache et par an » ou est-il intéressant économiquement d’allonger la période entre deux vêlages pour une même vache ? L’étude révèle qu’il y a bien une relation entre l’intervalle vêlage et les résultats économiques d’une exploitation. De plus, il n’y aurait pas un seul optimum d’intervalle vêlage mais plusieurs, dépendant du type d’exploitation et plus particulièrement du mode d’alimentation. L’optimum de l’intervalle vêlage a tendance à être plus court pour les exploitations à alimentation plutôt intensive et plus long pour les exploitations à alimentation plutôt extensive. Cependant il ne s’agit que de tendances observées, un travail plus approfondi doit encore être réalisé pour confirmer ces tendances et définir des objectifs plus précis à poursuivre pour maximiser la rentabilité de son exploitation.

The aim of this study was to characterize monovarietal virgin olive oils (VOOs) of new high-density planting system of three European cultivars (Arbequina, Arbosana and Koroneiki), recently introduced in eastern Morocco. VOOs’ characterization has been carried out by analyzing several parameters, such as quality indexes, fatty acid contents, minor components, and olive oils’ oxidative stability index (OSI). In this study, we have also conducted a comparison between these monovarietal VOOs and olive oils of autochthones cultivar Picholine marocaine. Significant differences between the analyzed VOOs were highlighted. Koroneiki’s VOO had a high phenols content (493.66 mg/kg) and, consequently, the best oxidative stability (94.83 h); Arbrosana’s VOO was distinguished by its abundance of α-tocopherol (460.07 mg/kg) and by an intermediate OSI (64.83 h). In addition, results showed, firstly, that in all the analyzed oils decarboxymethyl ligstroside aglycone and decarboxymethyl oleuropein aglycone were the main phenolic compounds, and, secondly, that VOOs of Koroneiki and Arbosana seem to have similar profiles, with a high content of natural antioxidants and a high oleic/linoleic ratio, thus boasting a better shelf life.
