Le go t et l’esprit de l’Exposition: les Spielmann et les Kiralfy
Michel Rapoport
Synergies Royaume-Uni et Irlande , 2009,
Abstract: Imre Kiralfy et Isidore Spielmann, tous deux issus de l’immigration juive d’Europe centrale, deviennent les ma tres de l’Exposition FrancoBritannique de 1908, symbole de l’Entente cordiale scellée en 1904. Kiralfy, fort de son expérience d’impresario et admirable homme d’affaires, avec l’exposition de Shepherd’s Bush, la White City, transforme l’esprit des expositions internationales, l’orientant vers la consommation de loisirs. Quant à Spielmann, qui a joué un r le clé dans l’organisation des expositions artistiques dans le cadre des expositions universelles et internationales, et qui est au c ur d’un réseau d’artistes et de collectionneurs, dans un esprit confrontation avec la France, il fait de la British Fine Art Section de la FrancoBritish, la vitrine de l’art britannique, le préraphaélisme étant présenté comme la force vitale de la peinture britannique d’alors et l’initiateur de l’impressionnisme. Kiralfy et Spielmann se rejoignent dans leur volonté de faire de cette exposition le lieu et le temps fort de l’exaltation de la grandeur de la Grande-Bretagne et de son Empire
The Penguin New Writing, Horizon et la France (1940-1945)
Michel Rapoport
Synergies Royaume-Uni et Irlande , 2009,
Abstract: L’entrée en guerre s’accompagne d’une mobilisation des intellectuels dont témoignent dès 1940 la naissance de nouvelles revues parmi lesquelles The Penguin New Writing de John Lehmann, dont le succès ne se dément pas durant toute la guerre, et Horizon de Cyril Connolly. La France est très présente dans ces deux revues, sous les formes les plus diverses, de la traduction de textes d’auteurs fran ais à des articles de critique en passant par des témoignages sur la situation de la France durant la guerre et à la Libération. Si les deux revues se livrent à une aimable concurrence, le contenu fran ais de The Penguin New Writing présente davantage d’homogénéité que celui d’Horizon caractérisé par son éclectisme. Mais l’une comme l’autre témoignent d’une francophilie évidente dans ces années noires et font découvrir aux Britanniques la vitalité créatrice de la France.
Sustainability of Teachers' International Experiences: Conditions for Institutionalization of International Program Outcomes
Anatoli Rapoport
Education Research International , 2011, DOI: 10.1155/2011/591276
Abstract: Since World War II international exchange and training programs for educators have increasingly played an important role in developing prospective consciousness and awareness of cultural diversity and global interdependence among teachers. However, international programs have always depended on extra educational factors such as political, ideological, cultural, or financial circumstances. As a result, program sustainability and proper institutionalization of program's results that are a testimony of achieved success, are both matters of concern for program developers and alumni. This paper identifies factors and contexts that facilitate sustainable development of international programs and institutionalization of their outcomes. Two cohorts of international teacher program alumni from Russia and the United States were interviewed about the impact of exchange programs on participants' status and pedagogies. The study demonstrated that respondents consider three factors, namely, motivational, administrative, and cooperative, most critical for the institutionalization of international program results.

Introduction As a result of major cultural and political transformations in the world, international programs in education that initially started as a means for promoting Western values [1] have become an important component in developing global awareness and cross-cultural learning. Researchers of international exchange programs predicted that (a) international educational exchanges will increase, (b) the purposes of the agencies and individuals will be clarified, (c) procedures at all levels will be improved, (d) research into all aspects of cross-cultural relations will be continued and expanded, and (d) the competence, professionalism, and understanding of the individuals involved in the operations of these programs will grow [2–5]. These predictions have been well justified. For 59 years (1949–2008), almost 29,000 foreign and more than 20,000 US educators participated in international exchange programs through Fulbright grants administered by the US Department of State [6]. More than 43,000 individuals participated in educational exchanges in 1964–2008 through Fulbright-Hays grants administered by the US Department of Education [6]. In different years, government-sponsored exchange and training programs accounted for 4 to 7 percent of all programs [7], besides the numerous international exchange programs for educators sponsored by private funds. 2.

A guide to the reduction modulo p of Shimura varieties
M. Rapoport
Mathematics , 2002,
Abstract: This is a report on results and methods in the reduction modulo p of Shimura varieties with parahoric level structure. In the first part, the local theory, we explain the concepts of parahoric subgroups, of the mu-admissible and mu-permissible subsets of the Iwahori-Weyl group, of the corresponding union of affine Deligne-Lusztig varieties and of local models. In the second part, the global theory, we use these concepts to formulate conjectures on the points in the reduction modulo p of Shimura varieties with parahoric level structure.
Metabolic Factors Limiting Performance in Marathon Runners
Benjamin I. Rapoport
PLOS Computational Biology , 2010, DOI: 10.1371/journal.pcbi.1000960
Abstract: Each year in the past three decades has seen hundreds of thousands of runners register to run a major marathon. Of those who attempt to race over the marathon distance of 26 miles and 385 yards (42.195 kilometers), more than two-fifths experience severe and performance-limiting depletion of physiologic carbohydrate reserves (a phenomenon known as ‘hitting the wall’), and thousands drop out before reaching the finish lines (approximately 1–2% of those who start). Analyses of endurance physiology have often either used coarse approximations to suggest that human glycogen reserves are insufficient to fuel a marathon (making ‘hitting the wall’ seem inevitable), or implied that maximal glycogen loading is required in order to complete a marathon without ‘hitting the wall.’ The present computational study demonstrates that the energetic constraints on endurance runners are more subtle, and depend on several physiologic variables including the muscle mass distribution, liver and muscle glycogen densities, and running speed (exercise intensity as a fraction of aerobic capacity) of individual runners, in personalized but nevertheless quantifiable and predictable ways. The analytic approach presented here is used to estimate the distance at which runners will exhaust their glycogen stores as a function of running intensity. In so doing it also provides a basis for guidelines ensuring the safety and optimizing the performance of endurance runners, both by setting personally appropriate paces and by prescribing midrace fueling requirements for avoiding ‘the wall.’ The present analysis also sheds physiologically principled light on important standards in marathon running that until now have remained empirically defined: The qualifying times for the Boston Marathon.
