This paper studies the sustainability of the Smart City from the acceptability perspective. Assuming that there is a possibility for end-users to reject some of the Smart City principles and, consequently, to jeopardize its perenniality, we argue that studying how citizens perceive some of the Smart City concepts is a prerequisite for the assessment of the Smart City sustainability scheme. In this paper, we test the acceptability of the Smart City by confronting the theoretical concepts generally mobilized in the literature with the people’s actual perceptions. To this end, a short survey was distributed on the occasion of three Smart City events. This article analyses the obtained results in regard of three demographic factors (age, gender and professional background). It thus repositions chore concepts of the Smart City in regard of acceptability, and particularly in relation to the associated risks for its sustainability. [less ▲]

Hybrid organizational forms combine values and practices from different institutional domains, rendering them difficult to fit neatly into the structures of extant organizational forms. Since the work required to institutionalize a new hybrid organizational form may be beyond the resources and capabilities of individual organizations acting alone, we shift the focus to inter-organizational collective action. Using empirical data from a study of a European network of renewable energy cooperatives, we find that, in order to institutionalize the new hybrid organizational form, the network can contribute to overcome the legitimacy challenges inherent in organizational hybridity. In particular, the network builds field-level receptivity to institutional pluralism, collectively codifies the hybrid organizational form, and consolidates legitimation towards plural field-level audiences. In order to perform these institutionalization roles, the network itself becomes increasingly formalized and mobilizes mediating functions involving different types of resources, legitimacy and target audiences. The research advances knowledge of hybrid organizational forms and their collective institutionalization through inter-organizational networks. [less ▲]

BACKGROUND: Different clinical trials show beneficial effects of physical training offered during and / or after breast cancer treatment. However, given the variety of side effects that may be encountered, physical training could be combined with psychological, relational and social guidance. This kind of multidisciplinary program has been little studied so far. AIM: To determine the benefits of a three-month multidisciplinary rehabilitation program among women after breast cancer treatment. DESIGN: Controlled no-randomized trial. SETTING: University for outcomes, University Hospital Center for interventions. POPULATION: Two hundred and nine outpatients who have been treated for a primary breast carcinoma. METHODS: Patients were divided into a control group (n=106) and an experimental group (n=103) which has benefited from a rehabilitation program of three months including physical training and psycho-educational sessions. The assessments, performed before and after the program, included functional assessments ("Sit and Reach Test", maximal incremental exercise test and "Six-Minute Walk Test"), body composition measurements (body mass index (BMI) and body fat percentage) and a questionnaire (European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer Quality of Life Questionnaire-Core 30). RESULTS: After three months, flexibility, walking distance and all parameters measured during the maximal incremental exercise, except maximal heart rate, were significantly improved in the experimental group. The body fat percentage was significantly decreased and a significant improvement was observed for perceived health status (quality of life), functional role, emotional state, physical, cognitive and social functions and for most symptoms. In the control group, most of these improvements didn't appear and a significant increase in BMI and body fat percentage was observed. CONCLUSIONS: This trial identifies the benefits of a well detailed multidisciplinary rehabilitation program, including physical re-conditioning and psycho-educational sessions, with important improvements in functional capacity, body composition and the majority of functions and symptoms among women after breast cancer treatment. CLINICAL REHABILITATION IMPACT: Through its results, this study could contribute to the development of hospital quality standards for oncologic rehabilitation. Physiotherapists can efficiently propose this kind of multidisciplinary rehabilitation program. [less ▲]

Cabbage (Brassica oleracea L.) is a common vegetable whose production is severely limited by insect pest pressure in Western Africa. This study was conducted during the dry and rainy season in the south Benin to evaluate the potential of tropical basil (Ocimum gratissimum L.) for repelling cabbage pests (Hellula undalis Fabricius, Plutella xylostella L. and Spodoptera litto-ralis Boisduval). In a complete randomized block design with four replicates, the insect infestation were compared between three association modalities: (i) cabbage intercropped with tropical basil, (ii) cabbage plots surrounded by tropical basil and (iii) control (no basil in the cabbage area). The presence of tropical basil near cabbage plots significantly reduced insect pest abundance on cabbage. Damages were also less important on cabbage intercropped with tropical basil. Among both intercropping modalities, alternate rows showed the best results in terms of reducing pest populations and damages than compared to cabbage plots surrounded by tropical basil. [less ▲]

Tetrapod limbs are serially homologous structures that represent a particularly interesting model for studies on morphological integration, i.e. the tendency of developmental systems to produce correlated variation. In newts, limbs develop at an early larval stage and grow continuously, including after the habitat transition from water to land following metamorphosis. However, aquatic and terrestrial environments impose different constraints and locomotor modes that could affect patterns of morphological integration and evolvability. We hypothesize that this would be the case for alternative heterochronic morphs in newts, i.e. aquatic paedomorphs that keep gills at the adult stage and adult metamorphs that are able to disperse on land. To this end, we analysed patterns and strengths of correlations between homologous skeletal elements of the fore- and hindlimbs as well as among skeletal elements within limbs in both phenotypes in the alpine newt, Ichthyosaura alpestris. Our results showed that metamorphs and paedomorphs had similar, general patterns of limb integration. Partial correlations between homologous limb elements and within limb elements were higher in paedomorphs when compared to metamorphs. Decrease in partial correlation between homologous limb elements in metamorphs is accompanied with a higher evolvability of the terrestrial morph. All these results indicate that environmental demands shaped the patterns of morphological integration of alpine newt limbs and that the observed diversity in correlation structure could be related to a qualitative difference in the modes of locomotion between the morphs.

La littérature néokantienne consacrée à la théorie platonicienne des Idées est surabondante. Elle a été alimentée par des questions profondes et a donné lieu, à son tour, à plusieurs polémiques importantes. Compte tenu de l’ampleur du dossier et de la variété des interprétations proposées, nous devrons renoncer, dans cette introduction, à brosser un tableau général de la réception néokantienne de Platon. Nous nous bornerons à en donner un aperçu introductif en mettant en évidence un petit nombre de thèses centrales et en mentionnant quelques aspects saillants des controverses que ces thèses ont suscitées.

Les cardinaux de couronne avaient pour fonction de défendre et de représenter les intérêts d’un État étranger auprès de la Curie. Cette activité leur conférait une place centrale et particulière dans le complexe réseau diplomatique, ecclésiastique et nobiliaire romain. À travers l’étude de quelques cas, nous examinerons leur rôle culturel en tant qu’organisateurs de fêtes et de cérémonies, manifestations essentielles à leur promotion sociale, événements où s’exerçaient les pratiques musicales et lieux d’expression de l’identité nationale. L’analyse de ces marqueurs identitaires nous permettra de vérifier l’existence d’une double culture ainsi que la construction d’un modèle de cardinal protecteur national à la cour de Rome, « grand théâtre du monde ».

Cet ouvrage analyse le parcours artistique d’un compositeur majeur de l’époque de Monteverdi, Sigismondo D’India (c. 1582-c. 1629), depuis l’Italie méridionale de ses origines jusqu’à son séjour à Rome et à Modène, où le musicien acheva son existence. En étudiant les villes, les cours, les princes protecteurs, les dédicataires et les lieux destinés à la musique, chacune des parties suit une étape de la carrière de D’India et redonne vie aux mondes de ce compositeur italien d’avant-garde. Apparaissent alors les thématiques du voyage, de la circularité et du croisement, lesquelles permettent de penser l’histoire de la musique comme une histoire à la fois des pratiques culturelles et de l’expérience musicale.

Alfred Einstein soulignait en 1949 qu’« à Naples comme à Palerme, le baroque le plus extravagant fleurissait à l’église, à la cour et dans la musique ». En effet, la culture de la Méditerranée – immémorial carrefour de nombreuses civilisations – a donné naissance à un monde musical riche et singulier dans la période qui court de la fin de la Renaissance au début du Baroque et sur lequel il reste beaucoup à découvrir. Il en est de même pour Rome : la richesse de l’activité musicale s’y présentait sous les formes les plus éclectiques. La Ville Eternelle était alors en effet la cour la plus importante de la Péninsule, foyer culturel majeur et porte de l’Italie méridionale. Nous pouvons constater un récent regain d’intérêt pour la recherche archivistique et historique qui a permis, à travers de nombreux travaux et colloques, de jeter un regard neuf sur le milieu musical et culturel romain et méditerranéen de cette époque (musique vocale profane et sacrée, musique instrumentale, théâtre, institutions musicales, etc.). Ces travaux jettent les fondements d’une recherche qui ne demande qu’à être approfondie. [less ▲]

We revisit the limit on very light axion-like particles (ALPs) from the absence of gamma rays coincidental with the neutrino burst from SN1987A. We use updated supernova simulations, modern models for the magnetic field inside the Galaxy, and a Primakoff cross section which takes into account proton-degeneracy and mass-reduction effects. We finally give an updated exclusion plot for the electromagnetic coupling of sub-eV ALPs, comparing our new bound with other limits as well as with future ALP searches. [less ▲]

Memories of Near-Death Experiences (NDEs) seem to be very detailed and stable over time. At present, there is still no satisfactory explanation for the NDEs’ rich phenomenology. Here we compared phenomenological characteristics of NDE memories with the reported experience’s intensity. We included 152 individuals with a self-reported “classical” NDE (i.e. occurring in life-threatening conditions). All participants completed a mailed questionnaire that included a measure of phenomenological characteristics of memories (the Memory Characteristics Questionnaire; MCQ) and a measure of NDE’s intensity (the Greyson NDE scale). Greyson NDE scale total score was positively correlated with MCQ total score, suggesting that participants who described more intense NDEs also reported more phenomenological memory characteristics of NDE. Using MCQ items, our study also showed that NDE’s intensity is associated in particular with sensory details, personal importance and reactivation frequency variables. [less ▲]
