Sharp Nonexistence Results for a Linear Elliptic Inequality Involving Hardy and Leray Potentials
Fall MouhamedMoustapha,Musina Roberta
Journal of Inequalities and Applications , 2011,
Abstract: We deal with nonnegative distributional supersolutions for a class of linear elliptic equations involving inverse-square potentials and logarithmic weights. We prove sharp nonexistence results.
Michel Foucault and Francophone geography.
Juliet Fall
EspacesTemps.net , 2005,
Abstract: L’enthousiasme pour la pensée et les écrits de Michel Foucault parmi les géographes anglophones s’oppose au manque certain d’enthousiasme, voir de déni total, parmi leurs collègues francophones. Alors que Foucault est cité très largement dans la littérature contemporaine anglophone au sein des sciences sociales, il demeure marginal pour la grande majorité des géographes travaillant et publiant en fran ais. Malgré l’entrevue de Foucault publiée dans la revue Hérodote en 1976 qui paraissait jeter un pont entre les disciplines, les géographes francophones ont peu lu et peu utilisé ses propositions pour les sciences sociales et politiques. De plus, comme les approches politiques en géographie ont eu relativement peu d’écho pour de multiples raisons, les rares travaux existants comme le livre Espace et pouvoir (1978) de Paul Claval ou La géographie a sert, d’abord, à faire la guerre (1976) de Yves Lacoste ne sont pas influencés par les apports de Foucault. Cet article se propose de faire état de la situation par une revue et un examen de la littérature existante, complétée par des entretiens de géographes contemporains. Les uvres choisies reflètent les rares utilisations explicites de Foucault par des géographes francophones. L’accent est mis plus particulièrement sur Pour une géographie du pouvoir , écrit en 1980 par Claude Raffestin, ainsi que sur ses articles plus tardifs sur le territoire et la territorialité. L’analyse propose que cet essai d’adapter un certain nombre des propositions de Foucault au contexte de la géographie a été écarté et ignoré, malgré son grand intérêt, pour un certain nombre de raisons institutionnelles, conceptuelles et personnelles. Suivant la piste de Foucault dans une approche tant épistémologique que sociologique, l’article examine d’autres apports de géographes fréquentant des lieux éloignés des luttes de pouvoir du monde académique fran ais, explorant brièvement le travail de géographes québécois et suisses, fruits d’une nouvelle génération de penseurs francophones. L’auteure propose que de telles approches du politique méritent un public et un débat plus larges, spécifiquement en ce qu’ils sont différents des approches foucaldiennes anglophones qui sombrent souvent dans un moule homogène et totalisant. The enthusiasm for Michel Foucault among Anglo geographers is in stark contrast to the surprising lack of interest among their Francophone counterparts. Despite the seminal interview of 1976 published in Hérodote that appeared to build a bridge between disciplines, Francophone geographers have rarely read and used his work.
Satisfaction of Health Care Users with the Quality of Health Care Services in Senegal: A Multi-Level Approach  [PDF]
Ndiack Fall
Modern Economy (ME) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/me.2017.89079
Abstract: This paper analyzes the satisfaction of health care users with the quality of health care in the different types of health facilities in Senegal. The data used come from a survey of the Senegalese health system. In this framework, the multi-level approach with three levels of aggregation was used: patients (level 1), health facilities (level 2) and 14 administrative regions (level 3). The estimation results indicate a diversity, on the one hand, between regions, and on the other hand between health facilities. In addition, the individual characteristics of the patients have diverse effects across the levels of aggregation: the significance of most of them differs with respect to the context (e.g., gender, education level, age, smoking status and ownership of health insurance). While the waiting time and the applied rate effects differ slightly in terms of significance, the former influences negatively the satisfaction when waiting time is less than the duration of an appointment of the following day, whereas the level of satisfaction increases with the rate applied on health care.
Infant Nutrition and Later Health: A Review of Current Evidence
Sian Robinson,Caroline Fall
Nutrients , 2012, DOI: 10.3390/nu4080859
Abstract: There is a growing recognition of the need for a lifecourse approach to understanding the aetiology of adult disease, and there is now significant evidence that links patterns of infant feeding to differences in health outcomes, both in the short and longer term. Breastfeeding is associated with lower rates of infection in infancy; in high-income populations, it is associated with reductions in blood pressure and total blood cholesterol, and lower risks of obesity and diabetes in adult life. Breastfeeding rates are suboptimal in many countries, and strategies to promote breastfeeding could therefore confer important benefits for health at a population level. However, there are particular challenges in defining nutritional exposures in infancy, including marked social gradients in initiation and duration of breastfeeding. In recent studies of low and middle-income populations of children and young adults, where the influences on infant feeding practice differ, beneficial effects of breastfeeding on blood pressure, BMI and risk of diabetes have not been confirmed, and further information is needed. Little is currently known about the long-term consequences of differences in the timing and nature of the weaning diet. Future progress will depend on new studies that provide detailed prospective data on duration and exclusivity of breastfeeding together with appropriate characterisation of the weaning diet.
Another look at Second order condition in Extreme Value Theory
GS Lo, AM Fall
Afrika Statistika , 2011,
Abstract: This note compares two approaches both alternatively used when establishing normality theorems in univariate Extreme Value Theory. When the underlying distribution function (df) is the extremal domain of attraction, it is possible to use representations for the quantile function and regularity conditions (RC), based on these representations, under which strong and weak convergence are valid. It is also possible to use the now fashion second order condition (SOC), whenever it holds, to do the same. Some authors usually favor the first approach (the SOC one) while others are fond of the second approach that we denote as the representational one. This note aims at comparing the two approaches and show how to get from one to the other. The auxiliary functions used in each approach are computed and compared. Statistical applications using simultaneously both approaches are provided. A final comparison is provided. Cet article compare deux approches couramment et alternivement utilis′ees en vue d’′etablir des r′esultats de normalit′e asymptotique en Th′eorie des Valeurs Extrmes. Lorsque la fonction de r′epartition (fr) est dans le domaine d’attraction exremal, il est possible d’utiliser des hypothses bas′ees sur les repr′esentations des quantiles, et sous lesquelles des r′esultats de convergence forte, faible et/ou de loi sont ′etablis. Il est aussi possible d’utiliser une m′ethode devenue standard, dite celle du second ordre. Chacune est associ′ee `a des fonctions dites auxilliaires, servant `a exprimer les conditions de validit′e des r′esultats asymptotiques. L’une de ces deux m′ethodes est utilis′ee selon les auteurs. Dans ce papier, nous exposons une ′etude comparative et montrons comment passer de l’une `a l’autre par le biais des fonctions auxilliaires. Cette ′etude permet une lecture comparative des articles selon l’approche utilis′ee. Deux exemples, le processus des grands quantiles et le processus de Hill fonctionnel, sont propos′es comme exemples statistiques.
Civic engagement: An examination of public relations students’ perceptions and attitudes in the field
Lisa T. Fall
PRism Online PR Journal , 2004,
Abstract: This article explores the perceptions of student participants in civic engagement public relations projects. The reported research is a pilot project which will lead into a much larger, longitudinal study, and the author is keen to hear from other researchers examining similar issues or using related methodologies. Contact details are available at the end of the article.
