De plus en plus d’organisations du secteur des services s’équipent aujourd’hui de dispositifs numériques variés qui modifient les contextes et les contenus du travail. Ces outils sont présentés comme des ingrédients indispensables des modes managériales actuelles qui permettraient à divers dispositifs organisationnels promouvant la flexibilité et la mobilité de s’incarner. La présente contribution propose une étude des ressorts de l’émergence et de la stabilisation de ces dispositifs numériques qui émergent dans le cours de transformations organisationnelles. Nous montrons comment, dans une compagnie d’assurances, les dispositifs numériques sont mobilisés pour répondre à une volonté de « modernisation » de l’organisation et d’optimisation de l’espace de travail.

Jhumpa Lahiri’s work is unusual for the ways in which it challenges the interlocked ‘matrophobic’ and assimilationist streaks at play in US ethnic and South Asian American literature. Taking its cue from Marianne Hirsch, this chapter examines how Lahiri’s ‘mother-friendly’ versions of the mother-daughter relationship have the potential to complicate the predetermined scripts pertaining to representations of the Indian-American diaspora as a ‘model diaspora’ by the homeland and a ‘model minority’ by the US, while opening new gendered vistas on silenced histories.

Accurate predictions of breach characteristics are necessary to reliably estimate the outflow hydrograph and the resulting inundation close to fluvial dikes. Laboratory experiments on the breaching of sand-filled fluvial dikes were performed, considering a flow parallel to the dike axis. The breach was triggered by overtopping of the dike crest. A detailed monitoring of the transient evolution of the breach geometry was conducted, providing key insights into the gradual and complex processes involved in fluvial dike failure. The breach develops in two phases: (1) the breach becomes gradually wider and deeper eroding on the downstream side along the main channel, and (2) breach widening controlled by side slope failures, continuing in the downstream direction only. Increasing the inflow discharge in the main channel, the breach formation time decreases significantly and the erosion occurs preferentially on the downstream side. The downstream boundary condition has a strong influence on the breach geometry and the resulting outflow hydrograph. [less ▲]

It is increasingly recognized that brain-derived estrogens (neuroestrogens) can regulate brain physiology and behavior much faster than what was previously known from the transcriptional action of estrogens on nuclear receptors. One of the best examples of such neuro- modulation by neuroestrogens concerns the acute regulation of sensory coding by the auditory cortex as demonstrated by electrophys- iological studies of selected neurons in zebra finches. Yet, the spatial extent of such modulation by neuroestrogens is not known. Using functional magnetic resonance imaging, we demonstrate here that acute estrogen depletion alters within minutes auditory processing in male European starlings. These effects are confined to very specific but large areas of the auditory cortex. They are also specifically lateralized to the left hemisphere. Interestingly, the modulation of auditory responses by estrogens was much larger (both in amplitude and in topography) in March than in December or May/June. This effect was presumably independent from changes in circulating testosterone concentrations since levels of the steroid were controlled by subcutaneous implants, thus suggesting actions related to other aspects of the seasonal cycle or photoperiodic manipulations. Finally, we also show that estrogen production specifically modulates selectivity for behaviorally relevant vocalizations in a specific part of the caudomedial nidopallium. These findings confirm and extend previous conclusions that had been obtained by electrophysiological techniques. This approach provides a new very powerful tool to investigate auditory responsiveness in songbirds and its fast modulation by sex steroids. [less ▲]

This article stems from the discrepancy between the lack of attention paid to industrial land policy by academics and the predominant thought among elected representatives and development agencies, i.e. that industrial land policy plays a key role in the creation of growth and new jobs. The article begins with a reflection on the literature, which stresses the need to develop knowledge on industrial land policies. To help fill this research gap, we have developed an exploratory piece of research on the theme of their spatial and economic effectiveness, on the basis of statistical analyses dedicated to seven countries. As regards spatial effectiveness, the results underline significant national differentials in terms of land consumption on the one hand, while highlighting the economic sprawl that affects France and Belgium on the other hand. As regards economic effectiveness, our results show that the impact of the development of economic estates on growth depends largely on regional contexts. In particular, the “intermediate regions” in western Germany stand out as belonging to a specific context where land policies seem particularly effective from an economic standpoint. By contrast, the economic effectiveness of industrial land policies requires readjustments in most “predominantly rural regions, close to a city”. [less ▲]

The Typus Melancholicus (TM) is a pre-melancholic personality structure, defined by Tellenbach and Kraus and characterized by the orderliness, conscientiousness, norm orientation and intolerance of ambiguity. This study aims to discriminate the existence of a subgroup TM, among a unipolar depressive population. In order to prove the existence of this subgroup, we translated and administrated the Criteria for Typus Melancholicus (CTM) to a sample of 20 unipolar patients and 20 control participants. The research hypothesis was to find a similar proportion to the one observed in the literature (50% of TM in the unipolar sample). The results demonstrate, as expected, that half of the unipolar sample belongs to a homogeneous subgroup that displays the TM features. Furthermore, no control subjects displays the TM features. Those results suggest that the TM features design a coherent and typical psychopathological structure that can be found in an important proportion of unipolar depressive population. Our study identifies and confirms the existence of a distinct heterogeneity (TM/noTM) inside the unipolar group. This distinction opens the door to some important perspectives in terms of therapy.

Lorsque Spacewar!, considéré comme un des premiers jeux vidéo, voit le jour en 1962 dans les salles du Massachussets Institute of Technology, il marque le début d’une longue relation entre ce médium et la science-fiction. À l’heure où l’informatique est encore fort peu micro, la thématique spatiale que ce précurseur exploite présente en effet un avantage certain : celui de déployer à l’écran un « espace dont la principale caractéristique est le vide [...] un lieu qui exige moins de puissance de calcul » (Triclot, 2011). De l’émergence de cette culture hacker dans les années 1960 à la production actuelle, le jeu vidéo a constamment puisé dans les ressorts propres à la science-fiction – que ce soit les accents cyberpunk d’un Deus Ex : Human Revolution (Square Enix, 2011), l’uchronie d’un Wolfenstein : The New Order (Bethesda Softworks, 2014) ou encore la dystopie constitutive d’un Bioshock (2K Games, 2007). Cette richesse spécifique a pourtant été peu interrogée. [less ▲]
