Traditional foods play a major role in the diet of rural people living in the Tibet Autonomous Region of the People's Republic of China. Because these foods are mainly derived from local agriculture as well as artisanal production, their mineral composition may show significant discrepancies when compared with food composition data. This study aims at providing relevant data on the mineral composition of the main Tibetan foods. Sixteen different foodstuffs were sampled, including water, concentrated brewed black tea, chang, tsampa, wheat flour, dried cheese, dried yak meat, dried mutton, blood sausage, dried wild peaches, dried Chinese radish, and dried nettles. They were analyzed by inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) for 19 minerals: Na, K, P, Ca, Mg, Fe, Zn, Mn, Cu, Ni, Se, Mo, Al, As, Cr, Co, Cd, Pb, and V. The validity of the results was ensured by the use of standard reference materials. A statistical comparison of the mean mineral contents of the analyzed foods against food composition data from the China Food Composition (CFC) table was carried out. It revealed significant discrepancies, emphasizing the importance of food analysis for nutritional assessment in Tibet autonomous region. To the best of our knowledge, the mineral compositions of some traditional Tibetan foods are here reported for the first time. [less ▲]

The practice of “incident reporting” is commonly recognized as an effective mean to reduce the vulnerability of “at risk” socio-technical systems (e.g. nuclear plants, large industrial facilities or hospitals), as it allow the concerned community to learn from past incidents. Indeed, it is assumed that collective resilience will be upgraded via the use of institutionalized Incident Reporting System (IRS), enabling the organization to improve the quality of the actions and reactions in case of deviation from normality, or to prevent such deviation. Yet, inductive analysis of what happens with those IRS in practice are not numerous. In this paper, we address this gap and display the results of semi-structured interviews conducted in a nuclear facility. During those interviews, participants were also requested to produce a mind map of the IRS they are concerned with. As a result, we show that safety is a matter of solidarities that are situated in specific contexts. To that regard, incident reporting is a practice of decomposition and recomposition of trusts and thus of solidarities. Reporting incidents consists in putting solidarity on trial, as the collective safety was threatened. We show that such open trial is often avoided because questioning solidarities is not always desirable in order to allow the group to continue functioning. Overall, we argue that informal reporting behaviors can also contribute to upgrade collective resilience without putting solidarities on trial. [less ▲]

Medications often partially alleviate the symptoms of RLS patients, emphasizing the need for finding alternative treatments. Recent studies reported an efficacy of bright light therapy (BLT) in Parkinson disease. RLS pathogenesis involves the dopaminergic system and light has been shown to influence the dopaminergic tone. Therefore, the objective of our study was to determine the therapeutic value of three weeks of BLT on RLS symptoms severity, sleep quality, daytime somnolence, circadian rhythms and mood. [less ▲]

During the two last decades, the Greenland ice sheet (GrIs) contribution to the global mean sea level (GMSL) rise has significantly increased. In the future, difficulties remain to assess the GrIs contribution to GMSL rise because of large uncertainties linked to the feedback between the surface mass balance (SMB) and the elevation of the GrIs. In 2013, Xavier Fettweis, my promoter, has coupled a regional climate model (RCM), the model MAR, with an ice sheet model (ISM), the model GRISLI, in order to account of this feedback and, in this way, to improve the assessment of the future GrIs contribution to the GMSL rise. The aim of this study is to assess the pertinence of the MAR−GRISLI coupling which requires long computation time. Nine imulations were carried out with GRISLI. Six of these simulations consisted in forcing GRISLI with several present days MAR outputs (SMB and surface temperature) in order to identify the GRISLI biases. The three last simulations consisted in forcing GRISLI until 2100 with future non-coupled, coupled and modified non- coupled MAR outputs in order to find a technique to avoid the coupling. The results show that initial conditions need to be improved and that the ice flow velocities required recalibration because an abnormal present-day thickening of the GrIs margins. Ice calving only depends on ice sheet extension because of constant ice flow velocities. The MAR−GRISLI coupling can be avoided until the middle of the 2080s. Beyond these years, the SMB correction is too large so that the thinning of the GrIs margins is overestimated. In a further study, the SMB correction could be reduced to avoid the MAR−GRISLI coupling over longer periods. GRISLI could be improved or replaced by a more complex ISM with dynamic ice flow velocities to enhance the results. [less ▲]

Improving the monitoring of rumination in cattle could help in assessing of the welfare status and their risk of acidosis. In this work, the monitoring of cattle’s behaviour was performed using the inertial measurement unit (IMU) present in smartphones mounted on the neck of cows. The processing of both time and frequency domains of the IMU signals was capable to detect accurately the main behaviours (grazing, rumination and other) and highlight the characteristics of the rumination process. The algorithm for analysis of rumination was more accurate for grazing cattle than for silage-fed cattle in stables. [less ▲]

The aim of the paper is to develop a new nonlinear tuned vibration absorber (NLTVA) capable of mitigating the vibrations of nonlinear systems which are known to exhibit frequency-energy-dependent oscillations. A nonlinear generalization of Den Hartog’s equal-peak method is proposed to ensure equal peaks in the nonlinear frequency response for a large range of forcing amplitudes. An analytical tuning procedure is developed and provides the load-deflection characteristic of the NLTVA. Based on this prescribed relation, the NLTVA design is performed by two different approaches, namely thanks to (i) analytical formulas of uniform cantilever and doubly-clamped beams and (ii) numerical shape optimization of beams with varying width and thickness. A primary system composed of a cantilever beam with a geometrically nonlinear component at its free end serves to illustrate the proposed methodology. [less ▲]

Cet article part du constat que la Chine a fortement accru sa présence en Amérique latine durant la dernière décennie. Il observe plus précisément que les pays avec lesquels elle a rapidement augmenté ses échanges économiques et commerciaux se sont également engagés dans de nouveaux schémas de coopération et partenariat, posant la question de la Chine comme potentielle « alternative » aux partenaires occidentaux traditionnels de ce sous-continent. Là où nombre d’études s’interrogent sur l’impact des relations sino-latino-américaines, celle-ci propose d’analyser la stratégie chinoise envers l’Amérique latine, en s’appuyant sur le cas du partenariat stratégique avec le Brésil. Dans ce cadre, nous postulons que l’accroissement de l’influence de la Chine dans cette région du monde ne dépend pas seulement de la disponibilité de ses ressources (économiques, politiques, culturelles, militaires, etc.), ni de son aptitude à les mobiliser adéquatement, mais qu’elle tient également à la représentation qu’elle véhicule en tant qu’acteur mondial (coopération Sud-Sud) ainsi qu’à sa reconnaissance par les autres acteurs du système international. En ce sens, la puissance de la Chine se mesure également à travers sa capacité à s’affirmer comme une référence pour ses pairs émergents, voire auprès des puissances occidentales. En appréhendant les différentes dimensions de la puissance chinoise à travers ses actions de politique extérieure et les discours afférents, nous mesurerons dès lors la capacité d’influence de la Chine en Amérique latine, et plus précisément vis-à-vis du Brésil, à travers l’écart entre son discours (coopération) et la réalité (hégémonie).
