The digital birth of an African city : the case of Douala

Pucciarelli, Marta ; Cantoni, Lorenzo (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Università della Svizzera italiana, 2019 ; 2019COM003.

This dissertation focuses on the online communication and representation of a digital city in Africa: Douala, the largest city of the Republic of Cameroon. In particular, it explores the evolution of the web-based reproduction (Couclelis, 2004) of Douala, the largest city of the Republic of Cameroon, from a chronological, spatial and representational perspective, with the purpose of...

The role of insecticides and malaria infection on the mosquito’s behaviour and the consequences for malaria transmission

Thiévent, Kevin ; Koella, Jacob (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2018.

Insecticide treated bed nets (ITNs) are one of the most cost-effective techniques used for malaria control. While the repellent and irritant actions of ITNs offer personal protection, their insecticidal action contributes to community protection by lowering the number of infectious mosquitoes in the population. Despite this, the efficacy of ITNs to provide both personal and community protection...

Complementary medicine provision in an academic hospital: evaluation and structuring project

Rodondi, Pierre-Yves ; Lüthi, Emmanuelle ; Dubois, Julie ; Roy, Edith ; Burnand, Bernard ; Grass, Geneviève

In: The Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine, 2019, vol. 25, no. 6, p. 606–612

Objectives: Complementary medicine (CM) has become increasingly available in hospital settings in several countries. Nonetheless, there are disparities in the provision and organization of CM between hospitals and even within a single hospital. This was the case at Lausanne University Hospital, where neither a registry of CM practices nor homogeneous guidelines for the provision of CM...

In vitro cytotoxicity and catalytic evaluation of dioxidovanadium(V) complexes in an azohydrazone ligand environment

Mohanty, Monalisa ; Maurya, Shailendra K. ; Banerjee, Atanu ; Patra, Sushree Aradhana ; Maurya, Mannar R. ; Crochet, Aurélien ; Brzezinski, Krzysztof ; Dinda, Rupam

In: New Journal of Chemistry, 2019, vol. 43, no. 45, p. 17680–17695

Three new anionic dioxidovanadium(V) complexes (HNEt3)[VO2(L)1–3] (1–3) of tridentate binegative aroylhydrazone ligands containing the azobenzene moiety were synthesized and structurally characterized. The aroylhydrazone ligands (H2L1–3) were derived from the condensation of 5-(arylazo) salicylaldehyde derivatives with the corresponding aroyl hydrazides. All the synthesized ligands and...

DeltaRpkm: an R package for a rapid detection of differential gene presence between related bacterial genomes

Akarsu, Hatice ; Aguilar-Bultet, Lisandra ; Falquet, Laurent

In: BMC Bioinformatics, 2019, vol. 20, no. 1, p. 621

Comparative genomics has seen the development of many software performing the clustering, polymorphism and gene content analysis of genomes at different phylogenetic levels (isolates, species). These tools rely on de novo assembly and/or multiple alignments that can be computationally intensive for large datasets. With a large number of similar genomes in particular, e.g., in surveillance and...

Application mobile : notation, évaluation et recommandation des vins suisses aux consommateurs locaux

Diep, Edouard ; Stettler, Christian (Dir.)

Mémoire de bachelor : Haute école de gestion de Genève, 2019 ; TDIG 174.

L’idée globale de ce projet est de développer une application mobile compatible multi-plateformes (iOS et Android) afin de permettre aux consommateurs de vins vaudois de tous registres confondus (amateurs comme experts) de pouvoir noter et évaluer les vins qu’ils dégustent, que cela soit dans le cadre d’un achat au supermarché, d’un accompagnement lors d’un repas au restaurant ou...

Développement d'une application mobile pour évaluer la maturité de la Business Analyse d'un projet

Nicollin, Sébastien ; Berger, Cédric. Dir. (Dir.)

Mémoire de bachelor : Haute école de gestion de Genève, 2018 ; TDIG 167.

La Business Analyse ou analyse d'entreprise en français est en plein essor actuellement dans les sociétés. Il est important pour une entreprise de pouvoir évaluer sa maturité de Business Analyse au sein de ses projets. Les applications mobiles de nos jours sont très en vogue depuis l'apparition des smartphones et tablettes. Elles sont produites ainsi qu'utilisées par et pour des sociétés...

Evaluation des documents du service Données et Archives de la RTS pour une meilleure gestion de leur cycle de vie

Chevieux, Caroline ; Turner, Cécile (Dir.)

Mémoire de bachelor : Haute école de gestion de Genève, 2019 ; TDB 2399.

Suite aux réflexions menées au sein de son Cercle Patrimoine, le service Données et Archives (D+A) de la Radio Télévision Suisse (RTS) a pris conscience de l’importance de garder une trace de son histoire et de son évolution. Ne disposant pas des outils lui permettant d’assurer une gestion efficace de ses archives courantes et intermédiaires et, par là même, de constituer de façon...

Reciprocity and volunteering

Manatschal, Anita ; Freitag, Markus

In: Rationality and Society, 2014, vol. 26, no. 2, p. 208-235

This paper evaluates whether volunteering is imbued with altruistic or strategic reciprocity. Although scholars have intensively studied the motivations and social norms to volunteer, to date there is no agreement why human beings perform activities in which time is freely given up in order to benefit another person, group or organization. We argue that attitudes towards reciprocity and...

Nine hole peg test and transcranial magnetic stimulation: useful to evaluate dexterity of the hand and disease progression in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis

Czell, David ; Neuwirth, Christoph ; Weber, Markus ; Sartoretti-Schefer, Sabine ; Gutzeit, Andreas ; Reischauer, Carolin

In: Neurology Research International, 2019, vol. 2019, p. 1–5

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a neurodegenerative disease with involvement of the upper and lower motor neurons. Since the loss of fine motor skills is one of the earliest signs of ALS, the hypothesis was tested if the nine hole PEG test (NHPT) and transcranial magnet stimulation (TMS) with resting-motor threshold (RMT) could be useful in monitoring disease progression. Methods. We...
