La mania désigne la présence du divin dans ce qu'elle a de transformateur et de dynamisant sur le sujet: Cicéron en a une conception plus proche du sens courant: Dans la philosophie moderne , de nouvelles conceptions de la joie apparaissent.
La joie est ainsi un accroissement de notre puissance, lié à la réalisation de nos désirs et de notre effort conatus en latin pour persévérer dans l'existence.
Dans la philosophie contemporaine , Nietzsche associe la joie à la capacité d'approbation de l'existence amor fati , malgré son caractère tragique, comme expression de la volonté de puissance qui assume d'être joyeuse malgré les souffrances de la vie, sans se réfugier dans un bonheur illusoire religion, idéalisme. Le philosophe français Henri Bergson voit dans la joie le signe d'un accomplissement, d'une réussite et d'un achèvement, ce qui, selon lui, en fait un indice du sens de l'existence humaine [ 5 ]: Ainsi, le sens de la vie humaine serait la création.
C'est pourquoi Bergson distingue soigneusement le plaisir, simple subterfuge de la nature pour provoquer la conservation des êtres vivants la recherche du plaisir et la fuite du désagrément attirant ces êtres vers les actes utiles à la conservation de la vie , et la joie, qui signale quant à elle un accomplissement de la vie humaine [ 6 ]. S'agissant du Dasein , chez Martin Heidegger , on note qu'il recouvre sa liberté inaliénable en anticipant sa propre mort et la confrontation au néant qu'elle implique, à cette occasion le philosophe allemand parle de Joie dans son ouvrage Être et Temps.
Robert Misrahi actualise la philosophie de la joie de Spinoza et à l'aide de la phénoménologie de Merleau-Ponty il greffe l'existentialisme sartrien pour proposer un nouvel eudémonisme. Dans l'exhortation apostolique Evangelii Nuntiandi , il poursuit en ces termes: Le prophète Isaïe salue avec joie le Messie attendu: Le prophète Zacharie invite à acclamer le Roi qui arrive: Contribution of hormones from hormone-treated steers relative to total daily hormone production in man 1 per cent.
The improvement in FCE which usually accompanies the increase in gain adds to the economic benefits, and at the same time makes possible greater production of edible protein per unit energy used, and this in itself is of importance in a world lacking in protein supplies. Few analyses of the economic advantages of using hormones as growth stimulants appear to have been made.
For the UK, a recent calculation see Table 6 is based on the estimated increased return to producers for 1 cattle treated over a month period Assuming that 1 of these were steers and were heifers, and that the estimated daily gain was only 0.
Estimated increased return to producers from the use of hormones in animal production 12 months. From these figures are subtracted the cost of treatment. These calculations must be taken as an example only. Availability of the various feeds, variations in feed and product prices as well as in types of management from time to time and from place to place may play an important role.
However, shortening the time required for producing a certain weight at slaughter will represent an economic advantage, especially under feedlot conditions, since non-feed costs also contribute significantly to the total cost of production 10 to 18 cents per head per day in the USA. Growth rates are influenced by many factors, especially genetic constitution and feeding. Over time, selection as well as improvements in management systems, feed composition and feeding programmes have contributed much to increasing productivity in meat as well as milk.
Although it is difficult to evaluate the exact relative contributions of these factors, the overall improvements have been dramatic. An example is the increase in milk yield per head in US dairy cattle. These gains represented a saving of about 23 billion kg of total digestible nitrogen per year, the volume of milk produced remaining relatively constant.
The saving is equivalent to about 1. Data illustrating progress in beef production over the years are scarce, but increases in productivity similar to those for milk production are unlikely. In addition to the use of hormones, many avenues are still open for increasing productivity in meat and milk production see , including breeding programmes, regulation of rumen fermentation, optimalization of the balance between the indirect and direct feeding of the ruminant organism proper, and disease control.
Systematic selection of high-quality sires, combined with an increase in the number of offspring from high-yielding females through embryo transfer, may bring about further improvements in beef and milk production.
In many countries, development along these lines has hardly begun. However, the establishment of effective breeding associations and the strict organization of programme planning and execution are prerequisites for realizing the potentials in this sector.
The microbial systems in the rumen are extremely complex, and the balance between the various strains of bacteria is susceptible to changes brought about by many factors. The recent introduction of substances such as monensin offers great promise in altering the fermentation pattern to the benefit of productivity by increasing FCE.
Since the very extensive breakdown of carbohydrates and protein represents loss of much energy, research is currently being conducted in many laboratories in order to find new methods of increasing FCE. To a large extent, feeding a ruminant means feeding the rumen microbes which then themselves serve as feed for the organism proper.
This is indirect feeding, expensive in energy. On the other hand, the ruminant possesses, in the postruminal part of its digestive tract, all the enzymes necessary for utilizing all types of nutrients except cellulose. The rumen microbes are necessary for the utilization of cellulose, which globally represents an enormous source of energy. However, it is possible to sustain an adequate microbial population in the rumen even when ruminal breakdown of part of the easily digestible nutrients is prevented.
Enabling nutrients to bypass the rumen will increase the utilization of feed for production, and also create a more adequate supply of amino acids. Increased rumen bypass of nutrients can currently be brought about by several means, including formaldehyde and heat treatment of protein-rich feeds.
A third method, aiming more at specific substances that may be rate-limiting for production e. In the future, new methods of increasing rumen bypass will undoubtedly contribute significantly to increased productivity of ruminants. Whatever management system is adopted, effective disease control is essential for productivity. In many areas of the world, infectious and parasitic diseases inflict heavy losses on animal production. A recent study has disclosed nearly a one-to-one relationship between investment in agricultural research and annual productivity of edible protein in ruminants.
Investment in disease control is an important aspect of this work. Annual world mortality losses from disease exceed 50 million cattle and buffalo, and million sheep and goats. Non-lethal diseases are believed to lead to an equivalent reduction in production Thus, investment in disease control holds great promise for future augmentation of animal protein production.
In these perspectives, the significance of hormones in animal production may seem marginal, leading to the question of what priority to give to the various efforts to increase productivity and production. In the global context it is, however, at least at present, impossible to adopt one approach to the exclusion of others. As long as preparations exist that combine positive effects on yield and feed utilization with low or non-existing risk to the consumer, there will be a market for them.
What is more, the use of hormonally-active substances in the future may not be limited to those currently available. Common to the present compounds, natural or synthetic, is that they are degraded in the body only to a limited extent.
An entirely different situation exists for proteid hormones, which are broken down completely to amino acids, leaving no residues whatever. An example is the growth hormone which not only stimulates growth but also milk secretion, even in high-yielding cows , This anabolic hormone is currently available only in small quantities for research.
However, a recent breakthrough in the use of recombinant DNA technique see has made large-scale microbial production of species-specific peptide hormones a realistic possibility. Combined with the development of miniaturized automatic delivery systems for subcutaneous use, a new era may be visualized as regards the use of hormones in animal production.

Multiple channels provide unrestricted airflow. This effective heat management greatly reduces the need for active cooling, which decreases fan and airflow noise.
The rebalancing of proven colors combined with the addition of warm white and violet takes color rendition for your corals to the next level. The reconfiguration of the clusters compliments the all-new HEI lenses to deliver balanced color mixing better than ever before. All the spectrum, half the intensity. Perfect for the majority of aquariums inches wide and deep. The HEI lenses on the G4 deliver more usable light area.
This is accomplished by spreading light that would normally create an area of high PAR directly under the LED fixture and redirect it to a significantly wider optimal area of intensity for coral health and growth. This will reduce shadowing in the aquarium as well as increase usable space for coral at all depth. All you need is an Internet connection and a web browser Chrome, Firefox or Safari.
