La présente contribution propose d’appliquer des concepts issus de l’écoféminisme et de l’écocritique matérielle (Iovino Oppermann, 2014), en particulier les notions de « trans-corporéalité » (Alaimo Hekman, 2008), de « mémoire matérielle » (Alaimo, 2010) et de « cyborg » (Haraway, 2008), à l’étude de l’écriture du corps malade. Le corpus est composé de deux blogs dans lesquels les auteurs abordent leur cancer : Georges Hausemer (qui décède de sa maladie durant l’été 2018) est un écrivain, traducteur et éditeur luxembourgeois, auteur de romans et de récits de voyages, qui pendant plus de deux ans relate ses séjours hospitaliers et les traitements médicaux dans « Ich und mein Tumor » (« Moi et ma tumeur »). Élodie Malanda, docteure en littérature comparée et danseuse, fait le récit de sa maladie dans « Les cellules créatives », blog qui mêle écriture intime, chorégraphies, témoignages de patients et présentations de projets artistiques. La lecture comparative de ce corpus original permet de mettre en lumière plusieurs caractéristiques de l’écriture de la maladie sous forme de blog. D’une part, elle relève les moyens poétiques et esthétiques qu’offre ce support scriptural : temporalité singulière, ordre antéchronologique, renvois intertextuels et écriture « extime » [Tisseron, 2001] à l’ère du numérique. D’autre part, elle permet de comparer deux « graphies » corporelles, à savoir l’écriture et la danse, les deux auteurs décrivant et/ou exposant leurs corps constamment en mouvement. Finalement, les observations de G. Hausemer engagent une réflexion sur la perméabilité entre corps et environnement, entre matière organique et substances plastiques ou chimiques, alors qu’É. Malanda interroge le corps et la maladie en tant qu’objets culturels et, par conséquent, possibles sources de création. [less ▲]

The structural developments in the vicinity of the interface between the reactants of an epoxy are investigated using time- and space-resolved scanning Brillouin microscopy. The hypersonic profile across the phase boundary evolves with strong spatial asymmetry and exhibits erratic behavior within the resin-rich region, which is attributed to a complex interplay between matter transport, dissolution, polymerization, and molecular unravelling process. The presence of alumina nanoparticles in the resin changes the character of these matter transport and reaction processes significantly. On the one hand, the nanoparticles act as transport barriers, hindering the mixing of the reactive components; on the other hand they seem to have a catalytic influence on the epoxy polymerization under certain circumstances. Their transport against gravity is tentatively attributed to gradients in surface tension. [less ▲]

Bitcoin is a decentralized digital currency introduced in 2008 and launched in 2009. Bitcoin provides a way to transact without any trusted intermediary, but its privacy guarantees are questionable, and multiple deanonymization attacks have been proposed. Cryptocurrency privacy research has been mostly focused on blockchain analysis, i.e., extracting information from the transaction graph. We focus on another vector for privacy attacks: network analysis. We describe the message propagation mechanics in Bitcoin and propose a novel technique for transaction clustering based on network traffic analysis. We show that timings of transaction messages leak information about their origin, which can be exploited by a well connected adversarial node. We implement and evaluate our method in the Bitcoin testnet with a high level of accuracy, deanonymizing our own transactions issued from a desktop wallet (Bitcoin Core) and from a mobile (Mycelium) wallet. Compared to existing approaches, we leverage the propagation information from multiple peers, which allows us to overcome an anti-deanonymization technique (“diffusion”) used in Bitcoin. [less ▲]

Interest in the decentralised nature of blockchain-based distributed ledgers has rapidly grown over the past few years. While a portion of this interest is fuelled by the price surge in Bitcoin towards the end of 2017, numerous companies across industries such as healthcare and finance have shown a keen interest in this technology and begun investing in diverse research projects. The work presented in this dissertation proposes a series of enhancements to blockchain-based distributed ledger technologies by focusing on a key element in the system: the transaction. By investigating the life cycle of a transaction in popular blockchain systems like bitcoin and ethereum, several enhancements were identified to tackle some of the challenges under active research today by the blockchain community.

This book focuses on two important trends in the future of Administrative Law. The first is the relevance of administrative law for developing legitimacy and accountability of multi-level regulatory systems. In a time of global trade in goods and services, as well as increasing interconnectedness of public institutions, administrative law is in a period of growth and transformation. This book examines these transformations in the context of global administrative law, as evidenced by increasing interest in the nature and conditions of EU administrative law, and the movement towards increasingly intense regulatory cooperation in bilateral settings (for example EU-US) as well as multilateral fora (for example in international organizations such as the WTO).

As communication nowadays commonly takes place via electronic means, the use of electronic evidence (e-evidence) is becoming a crucial element in criminal investigations. Due to the borderless nature of the internet, many criminal investigations include a cross-border dimension and therefore, commonly require access to electronic data and evidence that are stored outside the territorial jurisdiction of the investigating authority. Since data are typically held by private companies that are often located in a different country than the investigator, law enforcement authorities (LEAs) are either dependent on the willingness of these service providers to cooperate on a voluntary basis, or to resort to existing legal procedures for obtaining the data for investigations. The relevant procedures under the current framework to access data stored outside the European Union is based on so-called Mutual Legal Assistance Treaties (MLATs), whereas judicial cooperation within the EU is, inter alia, governed by the Directive on the European Investigation Order in the form of the national transposition acts of the Member States. Because e-evidence is, due to its volatile nature, prone to modification and deletion, the timely acquisition of stored data is vital for LEAs. Therefore, informal cooperation between LEAs and private companies is a common method to obtain e-evidence, thereby bypassing the lengthy and often ineffective Mutual Legal Assistance (MLA) mechanisms. Such direct cooperation between law enforcement and private companies, which is commonly carried out on a unilateral basis, has led to a fragmented framework for the acquisition of data. Against this background, the European Commission, on 17 April 2018, proposed new rules on access to e-evidence, to secure and obtain preserved data faster and more effectively and to ensure that all providers that offer services in the EU are subject to the same obligations. Similar developments regarding the adoption of comparable legislative acts and instruments regarding direct law enforcement access to data stored by private companies take place elsewhere in Europe and beyond: The Council of Europe is currently preparing a 2nd Additional Protocol to the Budapest Convention on enhanced international cooperation, whereas in the U.S., the Clarifying Lawful Overseas Use of Data Act on rules for cross-border law enforcement investigations was enacted in March 2018. This contribution will address concerns regarding the role of private companies as ‘extended arm’ of LEAs and the measures that seek to cope with the legal uncertainty and fragmentation that emerged with the informal public-private relationships around the acquisition of e-evidence. The article suggests that the initiatives on different levels might result in even more conflicts of laws than is currently the case, if lacking a coordinated and coherent approach in Europe and internationally. Moreover, the article discusses the impact of the abovementioned developments with regard to EU data protection standards. The compliance of the new rules on access to e-evidence with the EU data protection acquis, namely the GDPR and Directive (EU)2016/680, will be one of the relevant matters covered in this article.

Water diplomacy aims to shift water disputes from zero-sum games into positive-sum cooperation models though actor-driven approaches. Small states are often viewed as facilitators of diplomacy through a commitment to regionalism and consensus, which highlights their influence in international affairs. Responding to the research question, ‘How do “non-decisions” lead to status quo in water diplomacy?’ this article discusses how regional water diplomacy based on influence is weakened by the domestic shortcomings of small states’ political systems, where authorities use non-decision-making to maintain a status quo that guarantees their legitimized power.

In multi-relay cooperative systems, the signal at the destination is affected by impairments such as multiple channel gains, multiple timing offsets (MTOs), and multiple carrier frequency offsets (MCFOs). In this paper we account for all these impairments and propose a new transceiver structure at the relays and a novel receiver design at the destination in distributed space-time block code (DSTBC) based amplify-and-forward (AF) cooperative networks. The Cramér-Rao lower bounds and a least squares (LS) estimator for the multi-parameter estimation problem are derived. In order to significantly reduce the receiver complexity at the destination, a differential evolution (DE) based estimation algorithm is applied and the initialization and constraints for the convergence of the proposed DE algorithm are investigated. In order to detect the signal from multiple relays in the presence of unknown channels, MTOs, and MCFOs, novel optimal and sub-optimal minimum mean-square error receiver designs at the destination node are proposed. Simulation results show that the proposed estimation and compensation methods achieve full diversity gain in the presence of channel and synchronization impairments in multi-relay AF cooperative networks.

This paper describes a patient (LD) showing a selective syntactic deficit in the production of Arabic numerals. Unlike in previously reported cases, LD's syntactic difficulties result in deletions rather than insertions of zeros, with a reduction of the number magnitude. The pattern of errors highlighted a distinction between "lexical zeros", i.e. the zeros in tens, that are semantically derived, and "syntactic zeros" that are syntactically produced as the result of specific production rules. In LD, only syntactic zeros were affected. Furthermore, the processing of numerals with final zeros was found to be easier than the processing of numerals with internal zeros. This pattern of errors is compatible with the lexical-semantic model of Power and Dal Martello. In this model, in fact, lexical zeros originate from a numerical concept, while syntactic zeros originate from a concatenation operation, plus an overwriting operation leaving one or more intermediary zeros. Thus, lexical zeros may be easier to manipulate than syntactic zeros that merely represent a null quantity associated to a specific power of 10. [less ▲]

Hyperechogenicity of the substantia nigra (SN) has been found to be a typical sign in idiopathic Parkinson's disease (PD), prevalent in more than 90% of affected individuals. To see whether SN hyperechogenicity is also characteristic for monogenetically caused PD, we investigated PD patients with alpha-synuclein, LRRK2, parkin, PINK1 and DJ-1 mutations by transcranial sonography (TCS). In all these patients the area of SN echogenicity was significantly larger than in healthy controls, but smaller, than in idiopathic PD. As SN hyperechogenicity could be related to an increased iron content of the SN, these findings suggest that iron may play a less significant role in the pathogenesis of monogenetically caused compared to idiopathic PD.
