Afin d’enrayer le réchauffement climatique, il est aujourd’hui nécessaire de mettre en œuvre des solutions innovantes sur les plans technologique et social, tant au niveau global qu’à l’échelle des nations et des communautés locales. C’est dans cette perspective que les coopératives d’énergie renouvelable peuvent avoir un rôle à jouer. La caractéristique principale de ces organisations réside dans le fait que les consommateurs eux-mêmes sont propriétaires des unités de génération d’énergie et investissent dans celles-ci. [less ▲]

At the eve of the 2014 “mammoth elections”, the Belgian electoral systems are in question. According to the eight parties having contributed to the sixth State reform, it is time for a “political renewal”. The agreement of October 2011 plans that the Senate will cease to be a permanent institution composed of directly elected senators. The latter will be instead replaced by regional MPs with dual offices. The agreement also provides the (principle of) vertical simultaneity between the regional, federal and European elections while it bans dual candidature and forces candidates to seat where they get elected. In the meantime, the Walloon Parliament has adopted the “anti-cumul” Decree, which limits the accumulation of local and parliamentary offices. This research note proposes therefore a global reflexion on the potential consequences resulting from these electoral reforms on the Belgian political class. We proceed in two steps. First, we detail which reforms could affect the political class. Second, we seek to evaluate which impact the reforms may have on the political class. We argue that the electoral reforms adopted for the 6th State reforms but also by the Walloon Parliament confirm and furthermore enhance an already pre-existing trend towards a territorial distinctiveness between the federal and the regional levels. The 2014 elections might become one of the key points of crystallization when political actors become aware of the existence of two distinct political arenas. Overall, the article anticipates the reshaping of Belgian politics in the run-up to 2014 and aftermath. [less ▲]

La Renaissance prend des accents inattendus avec Pierre Bruegel l’Ancien. A contre-courant des goûts antiquisants et italianisants, l’artiste exalta les traditions spécifiques de son pays natal et réalisa ainsi des œuvres originales, parfois déroutantes. Tandis que les Pays-Bas espagnols s’enfonçaient dans la guerre civile, Bruegel peignit une version insolite du Massacre des innocents, où il situait l’épisode biblique dans un village flamand et le traitait comme une scène d’actualité. Si ce chef-d’œuvre nous est parvenu fort altéré suite à des restaurations anciennes, nous pouvons en restituer l’apparence initiale grâce aux copies très fidèles qu’en réalisa plus tard le fils aîné de Bruegel, Pierre dit le Jeune. Nous découvrons ainsi toute l’audace dont fit preuve un artiste en vue, prisé dans les hautes sphères du pouvoir, jouant sur l’ambiguïté et le double sens pour exposer des positions subversives dans un contexte de répression politique sans merci.

An original and versatile method for the synthesis of a range of novel mannose-based surfactants was developed via metal-free photo-induced thiol-ene/-yne “click” reactions. This light-mediated hydrothiolation reaction involving a thiolated mannose was successfully applied to terminal and internal alkenes, dienes and alkynes, leading to monocatenary, branched, double-headed and bolaform amphiphilic carbohydrate esters,respectively. A surface activity study showed that these new compounds possess valuable properties and display specific behavior at the air-water interface. It also demonstrated the greater flexibility of the thioether moiety in the spacer of the surfactants produced via a thiol-ene reaction in comparison withthe triazole heterocyclic rings in similar glucose-based surfactants synthesized elsewhere by the alkyne-azide 1,3-dipolar addition.

Le département des Sciences et Technologies de l’Environnement (STE) de Gembloux Agro-Bio Tech faculté de l’Université de Liège a profité d’un changement d’intitulé de son diplôme de bioingénieur pour réviser son programme des études. Pour ce faire, il a adopté l’approche compétence. Afin de préparer au mieux ses futurs diplômés aux attentes du monde professionnel actuel et à venir, des anciens diplômés et des employeurs potentiels ont participé à la validation du référentiel de compétences associé à cette formation. Cette publication reprend les étapes clés de la création du référentiel de compétences et son exploitation dans la conception d’un programme des études cohérent. [less ▲]

Objectives: Existing naturally in the earth’s crust, Lead is a widely used heavy metal. It is an environment toxicant that may deleteriously affect nervous, hematopoietic, skeletal, renal, endocrine and reproductive systems. Lead is classified in its inorganic form as possible human carcinogen (group 2A) by IARC. Exposure to lead in the environment continues to be a serious public health problem for all ages. Children are particularly susceptible to lead poisoning. They absorb more lead from their environment and their developing central nervous systems are vulnerable to the toxicant. During the last twenty years, important measures of public health were undertaken in several countries to decrease lead exposure. In the best of our knowledge, this is not the case in D.R. Congo. A study indicated a relatively important lead impregnation of the Kinshasa population (mean 120 μg/L). However, there have been no reported studies in the evaluation of the relationship between urinary lead, urinary δ-aminolevulinic acid (δ-AlaU) and urinary porphyrins and lead blood level in Congolese people. This is the aim of this study targeting at first people living in Kinshasa. Methods: Blood lead and urinary lead levels were measured using inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry. The Bio-Rad ALA/PBG by Column Test and spectrophotometer method were used to quantify the concentration of δ-Ala in urine. The separation of porphyrins was carried out by HPLC coupled with fluorescence detector. Results: 37% of studied population presented blood lead levels above the 100 μg/L threshold (geometric mean: 133.29 μg/L) with a higher concentration in women than in men (140.30 μg/L vs 130.78 μg/L). 50% of children (0-17 years) presented blood lead levels above the 100 μg/L threshold and 43% of the same population presented blood lead levels above 50 μg/L as accepted nowadays in US. In the adult population, some targeted occupations were found to be associated with high blood lead. A small correlation was observed between urinary lead and blood lead, but no correlation was noticed between δ-AlaU and Porphyrins with lead blood levels. Conclusion: This study confirmed a relatively important Pb impregnation of the Kinshasa population and the existence of a major public health issue requiring corrective actions and the implementation of an appropriate regulation. Also, urinary lead, urinary δ-Ala and urinary porphyrins seems to not to be sensitive markers for monitoring exposure to lead. [less ▲]
