La pose de la première pierre de la nouvelle collégiale Sainte-Waudru le 9 mars 1450 marque le début d’un chantier qui s’étalera sur plus de deux siècles. Pendant ce temps, la ville de Mons ainsi que la circonscription administrative dont elle est le centre se dotent de nombreux autres édifices religieux. Ces modestes collégiales ou églises paroissiales (voire succursales) grandissent à l’ombre de Sainte-Waudru et présentent des partis constructifs souvent très différents de ceux mis en œuvre à la grande collégiale montoise. Pourtant, à l’inverse de la collégiale Sainte-Waudru , ces architectures ont rarement fait l’objet de publications scientifiques et restent dès lors fort méconnues. [less ▲]

L’état de l’église Saint-Julien avant l’incendie de 1817 est fort méconnu, bien que les parties gothiques de l’édifice fassent régulièrement l’objet de descriptions, de notices, de mentions voire d’analyses dans les synthèses consacrées à l’architecture médiévale en Belgique ou en Hainaut. Or pour pouvoir procéder à des comparaisons et replacer l’église dans l’architecture de son époque, il est important d’en avoir une image fidèle. Il faut donc nous pencher sur les divers types de sources (iconographiques, textuelles et archéologiques) à notre disposition pour reconstituer l’église dans son aspect antérieur à 1817. [less ▲]

Les ouvrages de Frédéric Lordon ont offert ces dernières années un éclairage nouveau des mécanismes de la finance et du capitalisme en régime néolibéral, en vertu de la place centrale qu’ils accordent aux affects. Il est frappant que cette entreprise – qui est triple: analyse de la finance, analyse du capitalisme, analyse de la domination – soit doublée d’une attention portée au discours même qui la développe. On peut repérer une telle attention dans la pluralité des genres de discours qu’investit Frédéric Lordon : ouvrages « savants » ou « universitaires », mais aussi courts essais engagés aux éditions Raisons d’agir, articles de presse dans Le Monde Diplomatique notamment, tenue du blog « La pompe à phynance » sur le site du même journal, et même pièce de théâtre récemment adaptée au cinéma, D’un retournement l’autre. Comédie sérieuse sur la crise financière. En quatre actes, et en alexandrins . Diversité de genre entre les différents types de textes, donc. Diversité interne à chacun de ces textes, aussi : le lecteur de Frédéric Lordon se trouve toujours à cheval sur plusieurs codes rhétoriques dont joue l’auteur dans un même ouvrage. On pourrait bien sûr tenir cette double diversité pour la simple conséquence du talent d’écriture de Lordon, ou d’un plaisir pris par l’auteur à jouer du langage et des ethos qu’il construit. Le présent article propose au contraire de considérer cette diversité comme le résultat d’un véritable travail sur les modalités rhétoriques du discours critique sur le capitalisme financiarisé, qu’il faut articuler aux principaux postulats de sa théorie sociale. L’hypothèse défendue sera, précisément, de considérer qu’il y a une construction rhétorique qui participe de l’entreprise critique et, du même coup, qui s’inscrit comme un geste politique dans une « société des affects ».

Ichthyosaurs rapidly diversified and colonised a wide range of ecological niches during the Early and Middle Triassic period, but experienced a major decline in diversity near the end of the Triassic. Timing and causes of this demise and the subsequent rapid radiation of the diverse, but less disparate, parvipelvian ichthyosaurs are still unknown, notably because of inadequate sampling in strata of latest Triassic age. Here, we describe an exceptionally large radius from Lower Jurassic deposits at Penarth near Cardiff, South Wales (UK) the morphology of which places it within the giant Triassic shastasaurids. A tentative total body size estimate, based on a regression analysis of various complete ichthyosaur skeletons, yields a value of 12-15 m. The specimen is substantially younger than any previously reported last known occurrences of shastasaurids and implies a Lazarus range in the lowermost Jurassic for this ichthyosaur morphotype.

Populations considered for shoulder analysis are often composed of various ratios of men and women. It is consequently hypothesized that gender has no significant effect on the joint kinematic. However the literature reports, for the shoulder, differences in the range of motion between genders. The specific influence of gender on the scapula-thoracic kinematics has not been studied yet. The dominant shoulder of two populations of men and women composed of 11 subjects each were evaluated in three dimensions for three distinct motions: flexion in the sagittal plane, abduction in the frontal plane and gleno-humeral internal/external rotation with the arm abducted at 90°. Posture, kinematics and range of motion were studied separately. For flexion and abduction and with regard to the scapular kinematic, external rotation were significantly larger for women than men. The differences were of at least 5° at 120° of humeral elevation. Upward rotations were identical. Women also showed larger average active humero-thoracic range of motion. The mean differences were of 13°, 7°, 12° and 5° for abduction, flexion, internal rotation and external rotation, respectively. No difference was observed between the scapular resting positions of both populations. The observed differences concerning both the scapular and humeral patterns would indicate that the shoulder behavior of men and women should not be expected to be similar. [less ▲]

The KDIGO guidelines propose a new approach to diagnose chronic kidney disease (CKD) based on estimated glomerular ®ltration rate (GFR). In patients with a GFR value comprised between 45 and 59 mL/ min/1.73m2 as estimated by the CKD-EPI creatinine equation (eGFRcreat), it is suggested to con®rm the diagnosis with a second estimation using the CKD-EPI cystatin C-based equations (eGFRcys/eGFRcreat-cys). We sought to determine whether this new diagnostic strategy might extend to kidney transplant recipients (KTR) and help to identify those with decreased GFR. In 670 KTR for whom a measured GFR was available, we simulated the detection of CKD using the two-steps approach recommended by the guidelines in comparison to the conventional approach relying on creatinine equation. One hundred forty-®ve patients with no albuminuria had eGFRcreat between 45 and 59 mL/ min/1.73m2. Among them, 23% had inulin clearance over 60 mL/min/1.73m2 and were thus incorrectly classi®ed as CKD patients. When applying the Kidney Disease: Improving Global Outcomes (KDIGO) strategy, 138 patients were con®rmed as having a GFR below 60 mL/min with eGFRcreat-cys. However, 21% of them were misclassi®ed in reference to measured GFR. Our data do no not support the use of cystatin C as a con®rmatory test of stage 3A CKD in KTR. [less ▲]

Plants have a long evolutionary history, during which mass extinction events dramatically affected Earth’s ecosystems and its biodiversity. The fossil record can shed light on the diversi- fication dynamics of plant life and reveal how changes in the origination–extinction balance have contributed to shaping the current flora. We use a novel Bayesian approach to estimate origination and extinction rates in plants throughout their history. We focus on the effect of the ‘Big Five’ mass extinctions and on estimating the timing of origin of vascular plants, seed plants and angiosperms. Our analyses show that plant diversification is characterized by several shifts in origination and extinction rates, often matching the most important geological boundaries. The estimated origin of major plant clades predates the oldest macrofossils when considering the uncertainties associated with the fossil record and the preservation process. Our findings show that the commonly recognized mass extinctions have affected each plant group differently and that phases of high extinction often coincided with major floral turnovers. For instance, after the Cretaceous–Paleogene boundary we infer negligible shifts in diversification of non-flowering seed plants, but find significantly decreased extinction in spore-bearing plants and increased origination rates in angiosperms, contributing to their current ecological and evolutionary dominance.
