La prévention quaternaire vise à protéger le patient ou la po- pulation de la surmédicalisation. Elle imprègne toute l’activité du médecin de famille par une interrogation tant sur l’utilité de la prévention primaire que du diagnostic précoce, ou sur les risques de la création de nouvelles entités pathologiques et d’une médecine maximaliste. Le médecin de famille favorise la prévention quaternaire en se centrant sur les priorités du patient et sur les ressources locales d’un système de soins efficace. [less ▲]

Numerous trace elements (TEs) can be considered as potential pollutants of the environment, their mining productions and industrial uses increasing worldwide. Their monitoring can be achieved through the use of bioindicator species, such as the Mediterranean mussel Mytilus galloprovincialis (Lamarck, 1819). That species has been widely used to monitor the chemical pollution of coastal ecosystems by Cr, Ni, Cu, Zn, Cd, Pb, As, Ag and V. Conversely, environmental levels of Be, Al, Fe, Mn, Co, Se, Mo, Sn, Sb and Bi have been little or not monitored so far in mussel watch programs. Bioaccumulation processes of these 19 TEs in rope-grown M. galloprovincialis purchased from a salt pond with good chemical water quality were thus investigated in the present study. Mussels efficiently accumulated the 19 studied TEs. Bioaccumulation processes were driven by numerous mutually dependent biological parameters such as the mussel size and flesh weight, the sex and the reproductive status and the body compartment considered. TE bioaccumulation was a power function of the mussel soft body dry weight; total contents linearly increased with the shell length. Small-size mussels overall concentrated more TEs, with a high interindividual variability, consequently influencing the modelling of their bioaccumulation in the whole rope population. Although a large range of rope-grown M. galloprovincialis sizes can be used for monitoring purposes, one will thus take care not to use extreme size individuals. The influence of gametogenesis in determining female body higher TE concentrations prior to spawning could not be neglected and varied depending on the element. TEs were preferentially accumulated in the hepatopancreas, except for Zn, Se, Cd and Mo, more concentrated in gills. Gametogenesis did not influence TE distribution between body compartments, but likely diluted their concentrations as a direct consequence of massive reproductive tissue production. So, results from the present study underlined the potential use of M. galloprovincialis in the biomonitoring of numerous little studied TEs and gave some insights into the decisive role played by some relevant biological parameters in bioaccumulation processes of the 19 investigated TEs in rope-grown mussels.

We present an algorithm based on an Ant Colony System to deal with a broad range of Dynamic Capacitated Vehicle Routing Problems with Time Windows, (partial) Split Delivery and Heterogeneous fleets (DVRPTWSD). Besides the traditional distance criterion, we address the important case of responsiveness. Responsiveness is defined here as completing a delivery as soon as possible, within the time window, such that the client or the truck may restart its activities. This is crucial for many production or service activities in different fields: express parcel deliveries, taxi services, Just in Time production, express repair services, medical care, petrol station replenishment, etc. We develop an interactive web-based solution to allow dispatchers to take new information into account in real-time. The algorithm and its parametrization were tested on real and artificial instances. We first illustrate our approach with a problem submitted by Liege Airport, the 8th biggest cargo airport in Europe. The goal is to develop a decision system to optimize the journey of the refueling trucks. We then consider some classical VRP benchmarks with extensions for more complex problems. [less ▲]

In the Maghreb, dams regularly suffer from excessive siltation due to erosion problems present in the catchment areas. The origins of this erosion are multiple: land use, deforestation, land affectation , ... Hydrology coupled with geographic information systems allows using distributed and physically based models to predict the evolution of siltation of dams. The application of these models in Algeria will finally predict the impact of anti-erosion measures, land use patterns on the siltation of dams accurately estimating the amount of sediment produced by erosion runoff and the degree of filling. A methodology based on the map data (digital terrain model, map soil science, geology map and mapping of land use) and daily meteorological data (temperature, relative humidity, wind speed, solar radiation) is being development and testing of the dam Bourkourdane. The SWAT model is used to predict the amount of sediment accumulating in the dam, the water flow rate inbound, outbound, and the volumes of water and sediment stored in the dam. Adequate management of releases, coupled with better management of erosion upstream of the dam will extend the life of dams Algerians. Especially for Boukourdane, improved management of releases is paramount to improve groundwater recharge, fight against the intrusion of marine waters and prevent the accumulation of fine particles that reduce soil permeability.
