Conditional Independence in Possibility Theory
Pascale Fonck
Computer Science , 2013,
Abstract: Possibilistic conditional independence is investigated: we propose a definition of this notion similar to the one used in probability theory. The links between independence and non-interactivity are investigated, and properties of these relations are given. The influence of the conjunction used to define a conditional measure of possibility is also highlighted: we examine three types of conjunctions: Lukasiewicz - like T-norms, product-like T-norms and the minimum operator.
Human Face Recognition, Information Processing and Social Behavior in Children with Autism  [PDF]
Pascale Planche
Psychology (PSYCH) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/psych.2014.511147

The aim of this study was to investigate whether children with high-functioning autism (HFA) and Asperger’s syndrome (AS) can be differentiated from each other and from typically developing children in ability to recognize a human face. The present study included 69 participants: children with autism (high-functioning autism or Asperger’s syndrome, n = 15 per group) and a control group of 39 typically developing children. It involved a face recognition task included in the NEPSY scale. Results showed that the autism groups performed poorer than the typically developing group, but no difference was found between high-functioning and Asperger groups. Both the information processing peculiarities of children with autism and their (interactional and communicative) social impairments could explain their difficulty to recognize human faces.

Dynamic Programming based Time-Delay Estimation (TDE) Technique for Analysis of Time-varying Time-delay
Deepak K. Gupta,George R. McKee,Raymond R. Fonck
Physics , 2008, DOI: 10.1063/1.3280161
Abstract: A new time-delay estimation (TDE) technique based on dynamic programming is developed, to measures the time-varying time-delay between two signals. Dynamic programming based TDE technique provides a frequency response 5 to 10 times higher than previously known TDE techniques, namely those based on time-lag cross-correlation or wavelet analysis. Effects of frequency spectrum, signal-to-noise ratio and amplitude of time-delay on response (represented as transfer function) of TDE technique is studied using simulated data signals. Transfer function for the technique decreases with increase in noise in signal; however it is independent of signal spectrum shape. Dynamic programming based TDE technique is applied to the Beam-Emission-Spectroscopy (BES) diagnostic data to measure poloidal velocity fluctuations, which led to the observation of theoretically predicted zonal flows in high-temperature tokamak plasmas.
Incorporating HPS Model into Lebanese Public Schools: Comparison of Adolescents’ Smoking, Alcohol and Drug Use Behavior in HPS versus Other Public and Private Schools in Lebanon  [PDF]
Sawsan El Halabi, Pascale Salameh
Open Journal of Nursing (OJN) , 2019, DOI: 10.4236/ojn.2019.94038
Abstract: In 2010, the World Health Organization supported the Lebanese Ministry of Education and Higher Education to establish a network of 10 Health Promoting Schools (HPS). This study was undertaken to address the extent to which the HPS model was able to produce changes in the risk behaviors of adolescents (Smoking, Drinking, and Drug Use) and prepare them to respond to evolving health challenges. A cross-sectional survey was carried out during 2011-2012 and compared Grade 6 - 9 students in HPS, and 10 other public and private schools. The Youth Risk Behavior Survey [1], and Carbon Monoxide measurements in adolescent breaths were used for data collection. Findings revealed that the current School Health Program failed to address issues of concern to adolescents with no significant differences in risk behaviors: smoking, alcohol and drug use. The HPS network needs reassessment to upgrade the outcomes of health education curricula. Expected learning outcomes and healthy practices must be designed to match students’ age, grade level, and developmental milestones.
Patients' perspectives on high-tech home care: a qualitative inquiry into the user-friendliness of four technologies
Pascale Lehoux
BMC Health Services Research , 2004, DOI: 10.1186/1472-6963-4-28
Abstract: Four home care interventions that are frequently used and vary in their technical and clinical features were selected: Antibiotic intravenous therapy, parenteral nutrition, peritoneal dialysis and oxygen therapy. Our qualitative study relied on the triangulation of three sources of data: 1) interviews with patients (n = 16); 2) interviews with carers (n = 6); and 3) direct observation of nursing visits of a different set of patients (n = 16). Participants of varying socioeconomic status were recruited through primary care organizations and hospitals that deliver home care within 100 km of Montreal, the largest urban area in the province of Quebec, Canada.The four interventions have both a negative and positive effect on patients' lives. These technologies were rarely perceived as user-friendly, and user-acceptance was closely linked to user-competence. Compared with acute I.V. patients, who tended to be passive, chronic patients seemed keener to master technical aspects. While some of the technical and human barriers were managed well in the home setting, engaging in the social world was more problematic. Most patients found it difficult to maintain a regular job because of the high frequency of treatment, while some carers found their autonomy and social lives restricted. Patients also tended to withdraw from social activities because of social stigmatization and technical barriers.While technology contributes to improving the patients' health, it also imposes significant constraints on their lives. Policies aimed at developing home care must clearly integrate principles and resources supporting the appropriate use of technology. Close monitoring of patients should be part of all technology-enhanced home care programs.The possibility of managing patients outside of the hospital has rarely been so widely considered. Indeed, home care is often seen as less costly and more patient-friendly [1]. However, the effectiveness and safety of home care have yet to be subjecte
La parte ideal de la crisis: Los mineros cooperativistas de Bolivia frente a la recesión
Cuadernos de antropolog?-a social , 2010,
Abstract: even in the most precarious situations, the responses to the economic recessions are not limited to the practical application of survival resolution. these answers generate imaginaries, moral representations and prior experiences that give sense to the events and organize strategies. taking this fact into account, this paper proposes to analyze the idealistic aspects of the economic global crisis through the experiences of the cooperative workers in the mines of bolivia. their logic of interpretation is far from those proposed by the salary and the welfare state. thus, the crisis appears as an ideal heuristic situation to understand market and labour representations of the social actors. as a matter of fact, we can observe that for the bolivian miners the breakdown of the miner's market was less traumatic that the previously unseen prosperity. this assessment reminds us that the sudden excessive accumulation of wealth can be a crisis equal to that experienced by the economical recession.
Psicodinamica do trabalho e rela??es sociais de sexo: um itinerário interdisciplinar. 1988-2002
Molinier, Pascale;
Produ??o , 2004, DOI: 10.1590/S0103-65132004000300003
Abstract: the psychodynamics of work is defined as the analysis of psychic processes mobilized by the gathering of a subject and the work organization constraints. in the 80s, the researches conducted in male workplace environments allowed to uncover the existence of collective defense strategies against suffering at the work. as from 1988, an important interdisciplinary work with work sociologies was launched. it is concerned with knowing whether the psychodynamics work was heuristic to equally analyze the situations of women at work and to reexamine the preexisting knowledge on men suffering in a sexualized problematic framework. the paper reports the main determinants which led to the establishment of sex social relationships and its challenge, the sexual division of work, a central dimension of the clinic research, the theory and methodology in workplace psychodynamics. an important issue in the paper is the situation of nurses, from which is constituted the main knowledge on the relations between health and work on the women's side.
A dimens?o do cuidar no trabalho hospitalar: abordagem psicodinamica do trabalho de enfermagem e dos servi?os de manuten??o
Molinier, Pascale;
Revista Brasileira de Saúde Ocupacional , 2008, DOI: 10.1590/S0303-76572008000200002
Abstract: starting from both clinic and theory on work psychodynamics, this article shows the importance of the compassion dimension in several activities involving hospital care. the results of investigations held within nursing staff and technical service managers revealed a care dimension included in all kinds of hospital tasks. however, care taking depends not only on good will or greatness of the soul, but it implies concrete organizational conditions.
Landscapes with Figures in Wordsworth’s Prelude (1805) Paysages avec figures dans le Prélude (1805) de William Wordsworth
Pascale Guibert
Revue LISA / LISA e-journal , 2009, DOI: 10.4000/lisa.93
Abstract: Bien que l’iconographie wordsworthienne s’attache à représenter le poète en promeneur solitaire, les paysages qu’il retrace lui-même dans le Prélude de 1805 sont fort peuplés. De multiples personnages — qu’il faudra bien appeler figures — animent ses paysages. Ils les animent au sens propre du terme : c’est-à-dire qu’ils conduisent le mouvement dont les paysages wordsworthiens sont à la fois le produit et la scène. Ces figures, loin de faire de la figuration, donc, configurent, dans un jeu typiquement wordsworthien d’activité passive, la nouvelle vision du monde qui se trame dans ces paysages. Ils effectuent et relayent les principes de la poétique wordsworthienne — combinaison, rayonnement, exaltation — par laquelle “la révolution copernicienne” du romantisme a “lieu”.

Revue LISA / LISA e-journal , 2007, DOI: 10.4000/lisa.1195
Abstract: Ce numéro intitulé En Terre étrangère ? de la Revue LISA/LISA e-journal, se propose de ré-examiner les relations entre poésie et arts graphiques. Composée uniquement de contributions de chercheurs littéraires, elle aura cependant cherché à éviter tout verbocentrisme — de même que son opposé eidolatre . En effet, il se sera agi ici ni de raviver la guerre des signes, ni de l’étouffer, mais d’explorer dans le détail ce qui se passe à la jonction de ces deux formes d’art. Nous ne sati...
