Space is lived individually and collectively and can become a source of existential affectation, especially when the lived experience is modified by disease. The fact that the hospital is also a place of territorialisation can potentiate this affectation, with at times surprizing consequences. We aim –based on a reflection about the relationship patients and clinicians establish with the territory of the hospital- to identify some psychological and existential issues at stake with regard to space as a social construction.

Summary Introduction: In developing countries, quality of prison life remains a challenge in public health. The present study aimed at determining the quality of life as perceived by inmates during their imprisonment at the Central Prison of Mbuji-Mayi, Democratic Republic of Congo. Materials and Methods: This cross-sectional study was carried out over a 3-month period (between December 2015 and February 2016) at the Central Prison of Mbuji-Mayi. Three hundred inmates participated to the survey. The World Health Organisation Quality of Life Scale (WHOQOL-BREF) was used to estimate health and problems affecting inmates’ everyday life. Results: Mean age of inmates was 33 ± 10 years (range: 18-70 years) and most of them were male (88.7%). The quality of life score they estimated was below 50, on the WHOQOL-BREF scale weighted over 100 points (average overall score: 26±7). When considering each WHOQOL-BREF domain, the lowest scores (0-100 normalised scale) were registered for: perception of physical health (24±11), psychological health (18±8), social relationship (39±15) and environmental relationships (24±8). Overall, inmates aged over 30 years old presented an average score slightly lower than younger inmates (25±6 vs. 27±7; p=0.005). Depending on the length of incarceration, the average score was lower for inmates imprisoned for more than 6 months compared to others (26±6 vs. 28 ± 8; p= 0.015). Correlations between domain scores were low but statistically significant; no correlation was highlighted between environment and mental health domains. Conclusion: Most inmates considered their quality of life as negative, regardless of the WHOQOL-BREF domain. Efforts to improve quality of life should remain a priority for political authorities.

Ce chapitre rend compte d’un atelier organisé dans le cadre du colloque APPE (Accompagnement des Pratiques Professionnelles des Enseignants) en vue de permettre aux participants de découvrir la démarche de supervision réflexive mise en oeuvre dans le cadre du Master en Sciences de l’Éducation à l’Université de Liège. Plus précisément, après avoir présenté les fondements de l’approche et la trame de l’entretien de régulation, le texte illustre les étapes-clés de l’atelier. Il se clôture ensuite par quelques réflexions mettant en tension les enjeux des pratiques d’accompagnement des futurs enseignants. Au départ d’un cercle de lectures organisé sur la base d’un extrait d’entretien de régulation mené par une future formatrice d’enseignants, les participants à l’atelier ont pu découvrir les différents types d’interventions visant à favoriser, chez les futurs enseignants, une démarche d’analyse de leurs pratiques. La présentation de quelques exemples de panneaux construits par les participants pour exploiter l’extrait d’entretien témoigne de la richesse des débats qui ont eu lieu durant cette étape. En suivant la trame de l’atelier, le texte se poursuit en évoquant l’étape de décontextualisation consistant à formaliser la démarche d’intervention, tout en la mettant en relation avec les éléments préalablement identifiés par les participants.

The starting point for this paper are the archives produced by the so-called Council of Troubles, the special court established by Philip II in response to the uprising and misbehaviour of parts of the population of the Low Countries in the years 1566–1567. This institution remained active from 1567 to 1576 and was commanded by the Duke of Alva. In particular, being well aware of the potential of those cultural objects and carriers of ideas, it watched very closely the production, the distribution as well as the possession of books. The documents contain inventories of thousands of books – either forbidden or not – found in bookshops located in the southern provinces. I will focus my paper on the 12 bookshops located in Brussels visited in 1568 by religious authorities, and especially in that of Michiel van Hamont, printer from 1557 to 1585. The repressive measures taken by the Duke of Alva will be the entry point of a study on the state of book culture in Brussels during the last third of the sixteenth century. [less ▲]

This paper is concerned with modeling the behavior of random sums over time. Such models are particularly useful to describe the dynamics of operational losses, and to correctly estimate tail-related risk indicators. However, time-varying dependence structures make it a difficult task. To tackle these issues, we formulate a new Markov-switching generalized additive compound process combining Poisson and generalized Pareto distributions. This flexible model takes into account two important features: on the one hand, we allow all parameters of the compound loss distribution to depend on economic covariates in a flexible way. On the other hand, we allow this dependence to vary over time, via a hidden state process. A simulation study indicates that, even in the case of a short time series, this model is easily and well estimated with a standard maximum likelihood procedure. Relying on this approach, we analyze a novel dataset of 819 losses resulting from frauds at the Italian bank UniCredit. We show that our model improves the estimation of the total loss distribution over time, compared to standard alternatives. In particular, this model provides estimations of the 99.9% quantile that are never exceeded by the historical total losses, a feature particularly desirable for banking regulators. [less ▲]

During the last years, chemistry was involved in the worldwide effort toward environmental problems leading to the birth of green chemistry. In this context, green analytical tools were developed as modern Supercritical Fluid Chromatography in the field of separative techniques. This chromatographic technique knew resurgence a few years ago, thanks to its high efficiency, fastness and robustness of new generation equipment. These advantages and its easy hyphenation to MS fulfill the requirements of bioanalysis regarding separation capacity and high throughput. In the present paper, the technical aspects focused on bioanalysis specifications will be detailed followed by a critical review of bioanalytical supercritical fluid chromatography methods published in the literature.

Louise de Savoie occupies a singular place at the French royal court : neither queen nor queen-mother, but mother of the King, she nonetheless played a prominent role in the political and cultural affairs of France. Daughter of Philippe de Bresse, duc de Savoie, she was raised at the court of her aunt, Anne de France, and married in 1488 at age 11 to Charles d’Angoulême, head of a cadet branch of the royal house of Valois. At Cognac where the couple resided, she gave birth to her illustrious children, Marguerite in 1492, and François in 1494. After the sudden death of her husband in 1496, she was herself still too young to be appointed their official guardian. Obliged to share that responsibility with Louis d’Orléans who became king in 1498, the young widow nonetheless asserted her authority in their education. How she succeeded in establishing her place at court, while her son, at first a distant heir to the throne, rose to be king in 1515, can be viewed through her astute patronage of arts and letters. Keenly aware of the power of books and images, Louise multiplied commissions that would reinforce her own position and that of her family and entourage, striving to align herself with illustrious women, past and present. Identified with “Dame Prudence” as she overcame obstacles and rivals, Louise de Savoie’s tenacious devotion to her children culminated in power that was fully recognized in the appointment of « Madame » as Regent of France.

In many applications, and in systems/synthetic biology in particular, it is desirable to compute control policies that force the trajectory of a bistable system from one equilibrium (the initial point) to another equilibrium (the target point), or in other words to solve the switching problem. It was recently shown that, for monotone bistable systems, this problem admits easyto-implement open-loop solutions in terms of temporal pulses (i.e., step functions of fixed length and fixed magnitude). In this paper, we develop this idea further and formulate a problem of convergence to an equilibrium from an arbitrary initial point. We show that this problem can be solved using a static optimization problem in the case of monotone systems. Changing the initial point to an arbitrary state allows to build closed-loop, event-based or open-loop policies for the switching/convergence problems. In our derivations we exploit the Koopman operator, which offers a linear infinite-dimensional representation of an autonomous nonlinear system. One of the main advantages of using the Koopman operator is the powerful computational tools developed for this framework. Besides the presence of numerical solutions, the switching/convergence problem can also serve as a building block for solving more complicated control problems and can potentially be applied to non-monotone systems. We illustrate this argument on the problem of synchronizing cardiac cells by defibrillation. Potentially, our approach can be extended to problems with different parametrizations of control signals since the only fundamental limitation is the finite time application of the control signal.

Dans cette contribution, nous nous penchons sur la possibilité de créer une dynamique interactive entre intervention sur le terrain et recherche scientifique dans le domaine de la formation. Les terrains d’application se situent tous ici dans le domaine de la santé. Nous présentons quatre configurations d’une telle complémentarité. Chacune d’entre elles représente une articulation différente entre le but de développement des participants et celui de production de savoirs scientifiques. Dans le premier cas, une démarche de recherche est entreprise en amont de la conception d’une formation. La deuxième configuration illustre une recherche scientifique appliquée à un dispositif d’intervention existant et qui vient en retour en modifier la logique. Pour la troisième, il s’agit d’une articulation continue entre recherche et formation s’alimentant mutuellement dans une logique de recherche-action. Enfin, la quatrième partie se penche sur trois dispositifs pédagogiques dont la caractéristique est de combiner des intentions formatives avec des préoccupations de recherche [less ▲]

Introduction: The Anterior Knee Pain Scale (AKPS) is a questionnaire used to examine the subjective symptoms, such as the functional limitations and the anterior knee pain. First developed in English, this questionnaire has since been translated and validated into several languages. The aims of the study were to translate and cross-culturally adapt the AKPS into French and to evaluate the reliability and validity of this translated version of the questionnaire. Methods: The translation part was articulated in six stages, according to international guidelines: (i) two initial translations from english to french; (ii) synthesis of the two translations; (iii) backward translations into the original language; (iv) expert committee to compare the backward translations with the original questionnaire (v) pre-final version testing and (VI) expert committee appraisal. To validate the French AKPS questionnaire, we assessed its validity, reliability and floor/ceiling effects. To do this, volunteer patients from Belgium and France, with patellofemoral pain syndrome were asked to answer the french version of the AKPS questionnaire at baseline and after 7 days, as well as the generic SF-36 questionnaire. Results: The AKPS questionnaire was translated without any major difficulties. A total of 101 subjects aged 34.49 ± 11.38 years on average were included in this study. Among them, 58.4% were women. Results indicated an excellent test-retest reliability (intraclass coefficient correlation of 0.97, 95% CI 0.96 - 0.98), a high internal consistency (Cronbach’s alpha of 0.87), a consistent construct validity (high correlations with the SF-36 questionnaire were found with domains related to physical function (r = 0.80), physical role (r = 0.70), pain (r = 0.64)) and low or moderate correlations with domains related to mental health (r = 0.26), vitality (r = 0.32), social function (r = 0.41)). Moreover, no floor/ceiling has been found. Conclusion: A valid AKPS french questionnaire is now available and can be used with confidence to better assess the disease burden associated with femoropatellar syndrom. It was successfully cross-culturally adapted into French. [less ▲]
