Edible insects are systematically targeted as a major future food for European consumers but success in introducing entomophagy in Western society depends on factors governing consumers’ attitudes towards insect-based products. Effectively, as for sushi in the 2000s, edible insects are considered as new food products in Europe and are deeply related to a fear or a reject feeling by consumers called “food neophobia“. Consequently, several studies have been achieved to face the actual aversion of European consumers for insects. These studies principally tried to understand the insect-related neophobia, to highlight positive arguments for entomophagy development and also to test possible ways of integration of insects as food. The purpose of this chapter is to get an overview of the actual literature on edible insect acceptability in Europe to propose conceivable solutions for product development and new approaches for further studies.

The volatile oils of Eucalyptus camaldulensis leaves harvested in three agro-ecological areas in Senegal were analyzed by GC-FID and GC-MS. Yields ranged from 0.5 to 1.0%. Qualitative and quantitative différences were determined in the composition according to leave sources. The main compounds of Saint-Louis oils were= 18.-cineole (69.3-73.0%) and limonene (12.4-13.5%) whereas those from Kaolack were charaterized by p-cymene (28.4-32.6%), 1.8-cineole (16.8-20.0%), alpha-pinene (8.7-11.6%) and limonene (7.8-8.3%). Those from Dakar revealed high content of béta-pinene (25.3-34.4%) and alpha-eudesmol (12.3-20.6%). During drying of leaves, the proportions of all major compounds (except limonene) increased and were optimal after 2 hours extraction duration. [less ▲]

Cet article examine la place du comic strip au sein du roman graphique contemporain à travers l'analyse de Little Tommy Lost (2013) de l'auteur américain Cole Closser. La particularité de cette œuvre tient en ce qu'elle se propose comme un pastiche rigoureux de divers comic strips des années 1920 et 1930, allant jusqu'à se faire passer pour une collection d'anciens strips oubliés puis redécouverts. Little Tommy Lost creuse donc une vague "rétro-réflexive" qui interroge la façon dont la bande dessinée peut remédier ses propres identités culturelles. Il s'agira de cerner les enjeux stylistiques, sériels, narratifs et culturels d'une telle remédiation rétro-réflexive. [less ▲]

A coupled Electro-Thermo-Mechanical Discontinuous Galerkin (DG) method is developed considering the non-linear interactions of electrical, thermal, and mechanical fields. In order to develop a stable discontinuous Galerkin formulation the governing equations are expressed in terms of energetically conjugated fields gradients and fluxes. Moreover, the DG method is formulated in finite deformations and finite fields variations. The multi-physics DG formulation is shown to satisfy the consistency condition, and the uniqueness and optimal convergence rate properties are derived under the assumption of small deformation. First the numerical properties are verified on a simple numerical example, and then the framework is applied to simulate the response of smart composite materials in which the shape memory effect of the matrix is triggered by the Joule effect.

This work presents a biased random-key genetic algorithm (BRKGA) to solve the electric distribution network reconfiguration problem (DNR). The DNR is one of the most studied combinatorial optimization problems in power system analysis. Given a set of switches of an electric network that can be opened or closed, the objective is to select the best configuration of the switches to optimize a given network objective while at the same time satisfying a set of operational constraints. The good performance of BRKGAs on many combinatorial optimization problems and the fact that it has never been applied to solve DNR problems are the main motivation for this research. A BRKGA is a variant of random-key genetic algorithms, where one of the parents used for mating is biased to be of higher fitness than the other parent. Solutions are encoded by using random keys, which are represented as vectors of real numbers in the interval (0,1), thus enabling an indirect search of the solution inside a proprietary search space. The genetic operators do not need to be modified to generate only feasible solutions, which is an exclusive task of the decoder of the problem. Tests were performed on standard distribution systems used in DNR studies found in the technical literature and the performance and robustness of the BRKGA were compared with other GA implementations.

Recent advances in organometallic-mediated radical polymerization led to unique α,ω-difunctional poly(vinyl acetate) (PVAc) and ethylene/vinyl acetate copolymers (EVA). A copper- catalyzed Huisgen dipolar cycloaddition ring-closure reaction was applied to these difunctional precursors paving the way to unprecedented PVAc and/or EVA macrocycles, and to their PVOH- and EVOH-counterparts after hydrolysis.

According to Pausanias' Description of Greece, the sanctuary of Despoina at Lykosoura was created before the Trojan War and was already important at the time of the foundation of Megalopolis by synoecism in the first half of the fourth century B.C. However, the absence of any mention of Despoina or Lykosoura in written sources earlier than the third century as well as the archaeological evidence invite us to challenge this alleged antiquity. This paper rather ventures the hypothesis that Despoina was a cult figure created by Megalopolis and that her sanctuary was given a pan-Arcadian flavour by the importation of cults and traditions that already existed in other cities.

Les champignons dans l’univers de Mario ; l’esthétique pixellisée de Minecraft ou d’Undertale ; le bleu azur dans Portal : autant de signes visuels qui, en tant que composantes d’un style ou d’une iconographie spécifique, signent l’identité esthétique d’une œuvre vidéoludique. Or, si les caractéristiques visuelles du jeu vidéo sont régulièrement évoquées, les réflexions qu’elles initient se limitent encore trop souvent à une évaluation des performances graphiques du jeu, voire à un commentaire sur l’appartenance ou non du médium au domaine artistique. Dans ce court article – qui marque une première étape, encore balbutiante, dans ce domaine de nos recherches –, nous souhaitons ouvrir un dialogue avec le lecteur sur le rôle de l’esthétique vidéoludique, à travers l’analyse d’une œuvre. Loin d’être anecdotique, la dimension esthétique d’un jeu joue un rôle essentiel dans la co- construction d’autres composantes du dispositif ludique, telles que la jouabilité ou la narration – le terme « esthétique » ne désignant donc pas ici le jugement de goût ou le beau, mais l’ensemble des caractéristiques formelles constituant l’identité visuelle du jeu. Inscrite au cœur de la structure des objets-jeux (du game), l’esthétique vidéoludique a également un impact tant sur l’expérience de jeu que sur la posture des joueurs (le play). Cet article se propose d’explorer ce rôle potentiel de l’esthétique à travers un cas d’étude : le jeu INSIDE (Playdead, 2015). Si notre analyse peut se déployer au sein de nombreuses œuvres vidéoludiques, l’exemple d’INSIDE se distingue par une particularité : son esthétique constitue un des piliers de la narration et d’une réflexivité qui marque profondément le gameplay du jeu – réflexivité qui a été étudiée dans un précédent article (Barnabé et Delbouille ; 2017). Plonger au cœur d’INSIDE permet donc non seulement d’illustrer la façon dont l’esthétique peut être mobilisée pour renforcer les autres dimensions du jeu, mais également la nécessité d’étudier l’esthétique propre au médium vidéoludique – au-delà de la simple qualité graphique ou du jugement de goût.

Given the limited number of written sources about the disappearance of cults in ancient Greece, as well as the important difficulties raised by their interpretation, the study of this phenomenon is almost exclusively possible through the analysis of the information obtained from archaeological excavations. However, the identification of the abandonment of a sanctuary is often difficult, mainly because of the excavation conditions but also because of post-depositional processes that may cause a destruction of the upper stratigraphic layers. Moreover, the cult of an abandoned sanctuary can be transferred into a new sanctuary, so that the archaeological sources cannot be sufficient to attest the disappearance of a cult. [less ▲]

The paper explores the textual and visual evidence from the Hellenistic Eastern Mediterranean concerning the use of incense in the ritual practice for Hellenistic political leaders. Focus is placed on the role played by incense in the construction of the religious experience of cults for human beings, with particular attention to 1) the interaction between incense burning and other ritual actions; 2) the role of incense in articulating the relationship between old (host) and new (guest) recipients of cult in specific contexts, and 3) the role of incense in Greek and non-Greek contexts of cult for rulers.

Over the years, polymer analyses using ion mobility-mass spectrometry (IM-MS) measurements have been performed on different ion mobility spectrometry (IMS) setups. In order to be able to compare literature data taken on different IM(-MS) instruments, ion heating and ion temperature evaluations have already been explored. Nevertheless, extrapolations to other analytes are difficult and thus straightforward same-sample instrument comparisons seem to be the only reliable way to make sure that the different IM(-MS) setups do not greatly change the gas phase behavior. We used a large range of degrees of polymerization (DP) of poly(ethylene oxide) PEO homopolymers to measure IMS drift times on three different IM-MS setups: a homemade drift tube (DT), a trapped (TIMS) and a travelling wave (T-Wave) IMS setup. The drift time evolutions were followed for increasing polymer DPs (masses) and charge states and they are found to be comparable and reproducible on the three instruments. [less ▲]
