La contribution se subdivise en trois parties, chacune envisageant une question particulière. 1) Un premier chapitre a fait la synthèse et le point sur les évolutions du régime de taxation des revenus mobiliers, depuis l’entrée en fonction du Gouvernement di Rupo. L’objet du propos est informatif et descriptif. 2) Dans un deuxième temps, nous avons analysé plus en détails le souci de transparence des patrimoines qui anime notre législateur, par le biais de l’introduction de nouvelles obligations de mention dans la déclaration annuelle à l’impôt des personnes physiques (assurances-vie individuelles auprès d’entreprises d’assurance établies à l’étranger ; existence d’une « construction juridique »), ou encore des efforts accomplis avec d’autres Etats membres au niveau de l’Union européenne. 3) Enfin, l’examen de la procédure de régularisation fiscale, telle que réformée par la loi du 11 juillet 2013 a fait l’objet du troisième chapitre.

The aim of this work was to isolate enzyme-producing microorganisms from the tract of the termite Reticulitermes santonensis. The microorganisms were extracted from the guts and anaerobic (CO2 or CO2/H2) and micro-aerobic atmospheres were used to stimulate growth. Three different strategies were tried out. First, the sample was spread on Petri dishes containing solid media with carboxymethylcellulose, microcrystalline cellulose or cellobiose. This technique allowed us to isolate two bacteria: Streptomyces sp. strain ABGxAviA1 and Pseudomonas sp. strain ABGxCellA. The second strategy consisted in inoculating a specific liquid medium containing carboxymethylcellulose, microcrystalline cellulose, or cellobiose. The samples were then spread on Petri dishes with the same specific medium containing carboxymethylcellulose, microcrystalline cellulose, or cellobiose. This led to the isolation of the mold Aspergillus sp. strain ABGxAviA2. Finally, the third strategy consisted in heating the first culture and spreading samples on agar plates containing rich medium. This led to the isolation of the bacterium Bacills subtilis strain ABGx. All those steps were achieved in controlled atmospheres. The four enzyme-producing strains which were isolated were obtained by using a micro-aerobic atmosphere. Later, enzymatic assays were performed on the four strains. Streptomyces sp. strain ABGxAviA1 was found to produce only amylase, while Pseudomonas sp. strain ABGxCellA was found to produce β-glucosidase as well. Aspergillus sp. strain ABGxAviA2 showed β-glucosidase, amylase, cellulase, and xylanase activities. Finally, Bacillus subtilis strain ABGx produced xylanase and amylase. [less ▲]

The members of the scarce category of Of^+ supergiants present properties that are intermediate between regular O-stars and Wolf-Rayet (WR) stars. Significant similarities between these transitional stars and WN-type objects are now clearly established, at least in the visible and near-infrared domains, pointing to common stellar wind properties. In this study, we report on the first dedicated X-ray observations of HD16691 (O4If^+) and HD14947 (O5f^+), revealing a soft thermal spectrum in agreement with the expected X-ray emission from a single O-type star. However, the X-ray luminosity of our targets is slightly lower than expected for single O-type stars, suggesting that the particular properties of their stellar wind has also a significant impact on the X-ray emission of these objects on the way to the WN category. We argue that the X-ray under-luminosity of HD16691 and HD14947 may be interpreted as the signature in X-rays of the intermediate stage between O and WR stars, as a consequence of enhanced wind density.

Quality variations in retail eggs are widely reported. This study aims at assessing the quality of eggs according to the marketing channel in the department of Bejaia (Algeria). In spring and summer 2012, 3330 eggs were bought in 30 stores divided into 3 categories: 10 supermarkets (1146 eggs), 10 public markets (1048 eggs), and 10 shops (1136 eggs). Egg weights differed significantly between marketing channels with 58.9±0.14, 61.2±0.13 and 62.8±0.13 g for public markets, shops and supermarkets, respectively (p<0.001). Although shell thickness was similar for all marketing channels, the proportion of damaged eggs was higher in public markets (9.0%), intermediate in food shops (7.3%) and lower in supermarkets (5.7%; p<0.05). The yolk/albumen ratio was significantly higher for eggs from supermarkets (48.0%) compared with the other channels (around 47.4%; p<0.05). The freshness of the eggs, measured by the Haugh method, was lower in public markets (74.3 units), intermediate in shops (77.6 units) and higher in supermarkets (79.9 units; p<0.05). The price of eggs, expressed in Algerian Dinar (AD) per kg, was significantly lower in public markets (124 AD/kg) compared with the two other channels (around 131 AD/kg; p<0.05). It is possible to conclude that egg quality in Bass Kabylie differs significantly among marketing channels, with higher quality observed in supermarkets. The lower quality of eggs in public markets is associated with lower price. Eggs from shops present an intermediate quality. A one-year study would allow studying both the potential seasonal effect and compare intrinsic variability across marketing channels. [less ▲]

This paper presents an incremental secant mean-fi eld homogenization (MFH) procedure for composites made of elasto-plastic constituents. In this formulation, the residual stress and strain states reached in the elasto-plastic phases upon a fi ctitious elastic unloading are considered as starting point to apply the secant method. The mean stress fields in the phases are then computed using secant tensors, which are naturally isotropic and enable to de fine the Linear-Comparison-Composite. The method, which remains simple in its formulation, is valid for general non-monotonic and non-proportional loading. It is applied on various problems involving elastic, elasto-plastic and perfectly-plastic phases, to demonstrate its accuracy compared to other existing MFH methods. [less ▲]

Surface Plasmons Resonance (SPR) architectures based on grating coupler/disperser combination is an attractive alternative for spectral-based biochemical sensing. In this paper, we investigate theoretically and experimentally a new concept where the plasmon coupling occurs through a thin film grating and sensing occurs via the first evanescent diffraction order in transmitive mode. The surface plasmon wave excitation induces a peak in the wavelength as well as in the angular spectra of the detected first transmitted diffraction order. Accordingly, a change in SPR spectrum of the detected diffraction order can be used to quantify the amount of the target molecules immobilized on the sensor surface and therefore, the concentration of these molecules in the analyte solution. The developed sensor architecture is dedicated to droplet biochemical sensing and appears to be especially suitable for biosensor integration and miniaturization. The presented sensor concept is perfectly suited for mass production of low-cost and reproducible SPR sensor chip for biochemical analysis. The implemented setup gives access to multichannel biosensing with the potential for efficient internal referencing, essential to achieve sufficiently high reproducibility and accuracy of the measurements.

This paper proposes two methods to speed up the demanding time-domain simulations of large power system models. First, the sparse linear system to solve at each Newton iteration is decomposed according to its bordered block diagonal structure, in order to solve only those parts that need to be solved, and update only sub-matrices of the Jacobian that need to be updated. This brings computational savings without degradation of accuracy. Next, the Jacobian structure is further exploited to localize the system response, i.e. involve only the components identified as active, with an acceptable and controllable decrease in accuracy. The accuracy and computational savings are assessed on a large-scale test system. [less ▲]

An anisotropic gradient–enhanced continuum damage model is herein embedded in a mean–field homogenization (MFH) process for elasto-plastic composites. The homogenization procedure is based on the newly developed incremental secant mean-field homogenization formulation, for which the residual stress and strain states reached in the phases upon a fictitious elastic unloading are considered as starting point to apply the secant method. The mean stress fields in the phases are then computed using isotropic secant tensors, which are naturally used to define the Linear Comparison–Composite The resulting multi– scale model is then applied to study the damage process at the meso–scale of laminates, and in particular the damaging of plies in a composite stack. By using the gradient–enhanced continuum damage model, the problem of losing uniqueness upon strain softening is avoided. [less ▲]

In order to ensure the accuracy of MEMS vibrometers, the first resonance frequency should be predicted at the design phase. However, this prediction cannot be deterministic: there is a scatter in the reached value resulting from the uncertainties involved in the manufacturing process. The purpose of this work is to take into account these uncertainties of the microstructure and to propagate them up to the micro-beam resonance frequency. The objective is a non-deterministic model that can be used since the design stage. Towards this end a 3-scales stochastic model predicting the resonance frequency of a micro-beam made of a polycrystalline linear anisotropic material is described. Uncertainties are related to the sizes and orientations of the grains. The first part of the problem is a homogenization procedure performed on a volume which is not representative, due to the small scale of the problem inherent in MEMS. The method is thus non-deterministic and a meso-scale probabilistic elasticity tensor is predicted. This stage is followed by a perturbation stochastic finite element procedure to propagate the meso-scale uncertainties to the macro-scale, leading to a probabilistic model of the resonance frequency of the MEMS.

Undesirable stiction in MEMS results from the contact between surfaces and is due to the adhesive van der Waal and/or capillary forces, which become important for micro-structures. In this work, a micro-macro multi-scale approach is developed in order to predict possible stiction in MEMS structures At the lower scale, the unloading adhesive contact-distance curves of two interacting rough surfaces are established based on Maugis’ model extended herein to account simultaneously for the van der Waals and the capillary forces. The resulting unloading adhesive contact-distance curves are dependent on the material and surface properties -such as elastic modulus, surface energy- on the rough surfaces’ topography parameters -the standard deviation of asperities heights and the asperities’ density- and on the humidity level. At the higher scale, a beam finite element analysis is considered to determine the residual configuration due to the adhesive forces once contact happened. Toward this end, the adhesive contact-distance curve computed previously is integrated on the surface of the finite elements as a contact law. [less ▲]

Background: There is a controversy on the possibility to increase the organ donor pool by donation-after-circulatory-death (DCD) and the possible decrease in donation-after-brain-death (DBD) by DCD programs. Our aim is to report the DCD experience at the University Hospital of Liege, Belgium, from 2002 through 2012, in a donor region of about 1 million inhabitants. Methods: The prospective organ donor and recipient databases were retrospectively reviewed. Results: 94 and 331 procurements were performed from controlled DCD and DBD donors in the time period, respectively. DCD donors contributed to 22.1% of the deceased donor (DD) organ procurement activity from Jan 2002 to Dec 2012, and up to one-third annually since 2009. DCD liver and kidneys contributed 23.7% and 24.2% of the DD liver and kidney transplantation activity, respectively. There was no decrease of the DBD procurement in the study period. In 2012, overall 54 DD were procured in the Liege region, reaching a high procurement activity.Conclusions: Controlled DCD donors are a valuable source of transplantable liver and kidney grafts, and in our experience do not adversely affect DBD organ procurement activity.
