We examined the hypothesis that lean female athletes, as compared to other female athletes and controls, have a greater deficit between reported energy intake (EI) and estimated energy expenditure (EE), and a reduction in resting energy expenditure adjusted to fat free and fat masses (REEADJ). The subjects were 12 gymnasts and figure-skaters (lean(More)

The mobile phone is seen as a strategic tool of social labour, whose capabilities are exploited to a different extent in the five studied countries. The analysis is based on a(More)
Our ambition here is to refine the various typologies that compose the mobility structure. We aim to complement the work done by Urry and investigate the role played in the structure of mobility by what we call the “network of personal technologies”.
