This research aims to formalize the spatiotemporal relationships of membership between individuals and the groups to which they belong. Specifically, we analyze how the membership to a community evolves over time considering past, present and future connections. The framework developed for this research is presented using an ontological approach. We demonstrate a specific domain ontology application for spatiotemporal membership using BFO2, an updated version of the Basic Formal Ontology. Key to this work is the representation of membership, modeled through different kinds of mereological relations possible with a group, for example, pre-member, active member, and alumni that capture how membership evolves and changes over time. The semantic web rule language (SWRL) is used to express the different spatiotemporal events that relate to membership and their consequences on membership such as subscription, graduation and reunion events. Mobility events are also included in the model. SWRL supports reasoning using the ontology and studying the evolution of membership between people and their various groups. We use the environment of a university community as an exemplar to develop and test the formalizations. However, the ideas are generalizable to a wide range of spatiotemporal domains, for example, these ideas hold for citizenship modeling or for consumers shopping at certain retail chains. The study of the evolution of membership connections between these entities and groups lends important insights for many different kinds of event planning. [less ▲]

The study of spatial patterns is of ecological importance in order to understand the causes of the distribution and abundance of organisms, and it also provides valuable basis for management and conservation. Amphipod crustaceans are key organisms in seagrass ecosystems. However, little attention has been paid to the spatial scales at which amphipod assemblages may vary. We examined variability patterns of amphipod populations inhabiting Posidonia oceanica meadows, over spatial scales spanning four orders of magnitude (1 to 1000 metres) and for two consecutive years. This study reports the scales that contributed most to spatial variation of amphipod assemblages and explores the potential processes of the observed patterns, with particular emphasis on habitat features. The number of species, the diversity and the density of some species, exhibited high variation across years. Most species showed the highest spatial variation in density and biomass at small scales (~1 and 10 m). Based on density data, the structure of amphipod assemblages did not differ at any scales investigated. The patchiness that occurred at small scales may have been only weakly related to habitat features. Instead, we postulated that behavioural processes of amphipods were likely good explanatory factors. Although, the small scale spatial variability can be an important feature of amphipod assemblages in P. oceanica meadows, many patterns probably remained undetected as they may occur at scales smaller than those investigated.

Cancer is a chronic illness that impacts both patients and family members. Spouses will often take on a caregiver role, meeting psychosocial needs such as health professional needs and information needs. This caregiver role can also create emotional distress. Moreover, spouses might experience perceived inequity characterized by a combination of feelings of overinvestment and of underbenefit. This perception of inequity can also lead to emotional distress. Given the consequences of cancer on spouses, psychological interventions may be one means for helping them to cope. In this study, cognitive and behavioural methods are proposed to spouses in order to support them facing their partner’s cancer and their own issues. The overriding objective of this study is to satisfy the psychosocial needs of cancer patient spouses. In order to reach this objective, it compares the efficacy of two methods of action: 1/ hierarchical organization of psychosocial needs and problem-solving, and 2/ hierarchical organization of psychosocial needs alone. This research also aims to assess the influence of the perception of inequity that spouses might feel on the utilization of the two methods of action. The main hypothesis was that the combination of the two methods of action would have a greater and intensified impact on the assessed dependant variables than the utilization of the hierarchical organization of psychosocial needs alone. Thirty-seven spouses were randomly assigned into two groups: the experimental group (n= 19) and the control group (n= 18). The methodology provided identical protocols to the two groups with one difference in that the training period differed in order to measure the effect of training for problem-solving skills. The average age of participants in the experimental group was 58 (SD = 11) on average, and 57 (SD = 11) in the control group. They were asked to complete several questionnaires at three different time periods with a three-week time interval (T0, T1 and T2) assessing these dependent variables: psychosocial needs and emotional distress (anxiety and depression). Socio-demographic data and the perception of inequity were only evaluated at T0. At T0, all participants realized a hierarchy of psychosocial needs. Between T0 and T1, the experimental group trained in the problem-solving method while control group trained between T1 and T2 for this method. Repeated ANOVA measures were conducted to assess the evolution of the psychosocial needs. Student t-tests were computed to assess the influence of inequity perception on the utilization of the two methods of action. The results confirmed previous findings demonstrating the psychosocial needs in spouses of cancer patients. Indeed, it appears that these participants perceive more psychosocial needs than those of similar samples. This difference might be explained by the period of our intervention which occurred earlier than in experimental designs of similar studies. The overall emotional distress felt by our participants was characterized by anxiety. Therefore, being the caregiver of a cancer patient seems to foster anxiety more than depression. The results confirmed the main hypothesis showing a significant decrease of the number of unsatisfied psychosocial needs when participants have used the two methods of action. This decrease was observed whenever the combination was implemented. In other words, the combination of the two methods of action optimized meeting psychosocial needs. However, the perception of inequity did not seem to influence the utilization of these two methods. This research presents some limitations in the form of a small sample size and of a single assessment of inequity perception at T0. Nevertheless, the results of this preliminary study remain interesting and promising: further research could enhance the employed experimental design in a larger sample in order to obtain more robust results.

Objectives: Our objective is to achieve a phenomenological cross-study of melancholic and manic crises. To do this, we analyze the relationship between these two psychopathological states by means of the concepts of "narrative identity" and "intentionality". Method: From clinical cases and with reference to various theoretical models derived from phenomenological psychopathology, we discuss similarities and differences between mania and melancholia. Results: Narrative identity is based on a double movement: that of the enunciation of a speech focused on his history and that of an act of creation. From different clinical situations, we find that: (1) the melancholic retains the ability to elaborate a narrative about his history but the creative dimension of this narrative is absent, and (2) conversely, the manic experiences only the creative dimension. Discussion: Intentionality, as the tendency of consciousness to move toward something beyond itself, proves to be the center of the manic existence without being able to set itself within the boundaries of factual constraints. The melancholic, conversely, experiences an existence in which consciousness has lost its capacity to aim beyond itself. Conclusions: Melancholia and mania are quite specific forms of being-in-world with particular identity and temporal experiences. These two states share a fundamental psychopathological feature, that we named here “manque chiasmatique”: they are disorders of the intentional movement that constitutes narrative identity, that is, of the dialectics between the rootedness (“enracinenment”) of self in its past and the possibility of creation of a new identity.
