Le Pigeon Viennois (Das Wiener Taube)

Partie I : “The Rules”
♦ 1ère règle du Pigeon Viennois: “Ce qui t’auras été infligé tu boiras” ♦ 2ème règle du Pigeon Viennois: “La 1ère règle toujours tu suivras” Les règles du Pigeon “Classic” sont toujours applicables, excepté l’ajout de trois nouveaux “jeux” pour les combinaisons 1-­‐4 / 4-­‐1 / 1-­‐5 / 5-­‐1 / 2-­‐4 / 4-­‐2  Chaque paire de combinaison fait référence à un jeu (sachant qu’un même jeu est attribué aux combinaisons 1-­‐4 et 4-­‐1). Le joueur qui tombe dessus doit désigner deux jouteurs. De surcroît, le joueur qui tombe sur l’une de ces combinaisons ne peut jouer qu’une seule fois; en d’autres termes, il ne peut relancer les dés une deuxième fois.

Partie II : “The Games”
A. Le Dilemme Du Pigeonnier

Chaque jouteur possède deux choix: “Tu Bois” ou “On Partage”.

Il existe 3 cas de figure possible :

• Les 2 choisissent “On Partage”  3 gorgées pour chacun • Une personne choisit “On Partage” et l’autre choisit “Tu Bois”  9 gorgées pour celui qui a choisit “On Partage” • Les 2 choisissent “Tu Bois”  2 affonds (=12 gorgées) chacun Avant de donner leur décision finale, les deux jouteurs peuvent discuter entre eux dans le but d’arriver à un commun accord afin de minimiser le nombre de gorgées. Evidemment, personne n’est jamais à l’abri d’un coup fourré, d’une attaque perfide, d’un piège ou d’une traitrise…

B. Le Pigeon Tescan

Le croupier (celui qui a fait la combinaison) donne 1 carte à chaque jouteur. Le jouteur qui a la plus haute carte devient Big Blind. Chaque jouteur possède 12 jetons (1 jeton = 1 gorgée) à son actif, le Small Blind est de 1 jeton et le Big Blind s’élève à 2 jetons. Par la suite, le jeu consiste tout bêtement à une manche de Texas Hold’em classique. Le perdant se voit dans l’obligation de boire toute la mise.

 NB: Le minimum qu’il est possible de boire s’élève à 3 gorgées (= ∑ des Blinds) et le maximum s’élève à 24 gorgées ce qui équivaut à 4 affonds (= All-­‐in des 2 jouteurs).

C. Le Pigeon Mythomane

Le croupier donne 1 carte à chaque jouteur. Celui qui a la plus haute carte commence.

Le déroulement du jeu fait référence à un Poker Menteur classique. Durant la partie l’un des jouteurs va annoncer à l’autre “Tu mens!”. Celui qui a tort boit la valeur de la combinaison annoncée.

 Liste des combinaisons / gorgées Paire 3 gorgées Double Paire 6 gorgées Brelan 8 gorgées Quinte (Suite) 10 gorgées Quinte Royale (Suite Royale) 12 gorgées Full 14 gorgées Carré 16 gorgées Poker 18 gorgées

Règle spéciale : Pour le Poker d’As, le nombre de gorgées s’élève à 24 (=4 affonds). Le jouteur a, comme d’habitude, la possibilité d’annoncer “menteur” ou d’accepter. Dans le cas d’un consentement, le jouteur a 3 essais afin de réaliser à son tour un Poker d’As. En cas d’échec, il se verra attribuer l’obligation de boire les 24 gorgées.

Zoonotic Diseases

...thrive in such areas are feral pigeon (Columba livia). Although there are few reports of disease transmission between pigeons and humans, their close interaction with humans and ability to carry zoonotic pathogens make them a public health risk. In fact, these birds are present at very high densities (2,000 individuals per km2) and can cover a maximum distance of 5.29 km (Dickx et al., 2010). This may result in the increase risk of pathogen transmission among other birds and potentially to humans. Studies have shown that most infected pigeons do not show signs of clinical disease. These birds may therefore pose a public health risk to the human population. Pigeons, like many other bird species, can harbor diseases that can be zoonotic in nature. One of the pathogens most frequently carried by pigeons is Chlamydophila psittaci. C. psittaci is an obligate intracellular bacterium that causes a disease in birds known as Psittacosis or Avian Chlamydiosis. Psittacosis is highly contagious and often causes influenza-like symptoms, severe pneumonia and non-respiratory health problems. Birds can shed this bacterium in the environment when they are either overtly ill or without any symptoms. C. psittaci occurs most frequently in psittacine birds such as parrots, macaws, parakeets. However, non-psittacine birds including pigeons, doves and mynah birds can also harbour the infectious agent (Greco, Corrente, & Martella, 2005). Therefore, pigeons are thought to be an......

Pigeon Post

...Pigeon Post The pigeon post was one of the oldest means of communication. It was first used even before 2000 BC by the Persians, the Egyptians, the Chinese, the Indians, the Greek, and the Romans. People have noticed that pigeons are able to fly to a far distance and come back to its nest, a pigeon’s ability that scientists now call homing, and then started to breed them. In fact, some people breed pigeons to be able to find its way home from extremely long distances, and we call them homing pigeons. In the Ancient times, pigeons are used for delivering and announcing events, like to announce people that an important person is arriving by releasing pigeons from said person’s ship in Ancient Egypt or announcing the winners of the Olympics in ancient Greece. In the Middle Ages, pigeon post has grown rapidly as it became a favorable form of communication. However, pigeons are later used for military purposes, especially in the Franco-Prussian War which brewed from 1870-1871 and the World Wars. Pigeons can fly for a thousand miles, while humans and horses cannot fly at all. Flying gives them an upper hand because they can see things from an elevated field of view. Also, pigeons are usually faster than horses so they can be an ancient equivalent to E-mail. Since pigeons can be ordered to fly to one place and another, they are able to cross the borders and send mail and parcels to other people living in other parts of the world, therefore spreading out. Also, if a country had......

These dove can be found singly or in pairs on the floor or wet limestone or the Montane forest at elevation 100-2200 m preferring areas with a relatively undisturbed understory. The breeding season usually last from March to June. Ring-tailed Pigeon Scientific Name: Patagioenas Caribaea The Ring-tailed Pigeon is a large and nomadic Pigeon of the highlands of Jamaica, and is most common in the Blue and John Crow mountains. This species inhabits montane forest and forest edges, and follows fruit crops. Consequently, the Ring-tailed Pigeon species can change from being nonexistent to one of the most abundant and easily seen birds in a matter of days in the right location. The Ring-tailed Pigeon generally moves in groups, and very large flocks can and up gathering in a roost or a fruiting tree.  This species is unique in Jamaica, in that it shows a broad, pale terminal band to the tail.  The Ring-tailed Pigeon is threatened by hunting and habitat loss. It breeds mostly in the highlands in spring and summer (from late February to August), occurring locally to sea-level on the wetter, north side of the island (Raffaele et al. 1998, BirdLife Jamaica in litt. 1998, 2000)....

Eva Marie Saint uses her Edie Doyle character to be the calming force in Terry’s chaotic life and the director uses her to sensitivity and romance to an otherwise harsh reality. The director also uses pigeons as symbols throughout the movie. The represent the longshoremen who are forced to not testify against the mob. The connection is that those who testify are called stool pigeons. In the opening scene of the movie, Terry lures Joey Doyle to the roof by telling him he has one of his pigeons to return. It is then that Joey is thrown off the roof because he had decided to speak to the police about mob activity. Several of the film’s key scenes involve the symbolism of the pigeons. Terry meets with the Golden Warriors and the crime commission investigator while spending time caged with the pigeons, symbolizing his being controlled by the mob. In a scene with Edie, Terry talks about pigeons and hawks. “You know this city if full of hawks? They perch on top of the big hotels and swoop down on the pigeons in the park” (Spiegel). Terry is speaking in the literal sense of the animals but the director uses this as a comparison to the longshoremen and the mob thugs.

Major Theorist: Skinner

...Synopsis Skinner addresses operant behavior in this article. Operant behavior refers to behavior that operates on the environment or is controllable by the individual. Skinner suggests that operant behavior usually affects the environment and generates stimuli which “feed back” to the organism. This feedback can be a reward and/or punishment (Skinner, 2012, p. 55). Skinner investigates this by using an aluminum box divided into two compartments. In one compartment, a pigeon is able to peck a translucent plastic plate behind a circular opening which is a delicate electric key. When pecked, the circuit is closed to operate recording and controlling equipment. Colored lights can be projected on the back of the plate as stimuli (Skinner, 2012, p. 54). Operant reinforcement is demonstrated when food is given to the pigeon when it pecks the key, which created the high probability of responding. If the food is not given when the pigeon pecks the key, the rate declines or may even stop all together. This is called operant conditioning or extinction. What happened when intermittent reinforcements, like fixed ratio or variable ratio reinforcement was used? This is where reinforcements are based on time and/or counters. Skinner relates this type of reinforcement to our everyday life and how few of the things we do always “pay off”. The dynamic characteristics of our behavior depend upon the actual schedules of reinforcement (Skinner, 2012, p. 55). The colored lights in......

In the 21 century, people are suffering from all kinds of diseases and over 85% of them are caused by, an unhealthy, diet. In the United States, 25% of Americans eat fast food every day, which can cause heart disease, hypertension and diabetes, starting with overweight.

The cartoon on the right was posted by cartoon artist Piraro on August 10, 2010. The cartoonist's opinion is ironic because pigeons will get fat by eating fast food just like people. By depicting McDonalds, fries and the pigeon's lazy eyes are related and pointed out the author's feeling about the combination of fat and bad health because of fast food. In the cartoon, the pigeon represent the people who are fat, lazy and don't want to move at all, but keep eating fries. The big M behind the pigeon stands for the popular fast food brand McDonalds. The sky is a mixture of white and grey, except for the yellow from the M. Anything else is less vibrant, less vivid and dispirited. The rhetorical appeals in Figure 1 include logos and ethos.

How Ww1 Was Different: Animals

...than the number already counted. A few animals used were dogs, pigeons, and horses.! ! Horses played a huge role in Wold War 1. They were used as a primary form of transportation up until the calvary charge at Mon. They were no longer used because of the trench warfare. After Mons, they were used to pull gun and carry ammunition. Altogether, over eight million died or were killed on all sides fighting in the war. Two and a half million were were treated and taken to veterinary hospitals. Most of them were cured to the extent that they could return to their duty. Without horses, people would have had to walk and carry their own equipment.! ! Another animal that made a difference was the dogs. Germany employed 30,000 dogs; Britain, France, and Belgium had over 20,000; and Italy only had 3,000. The two main dog breeds used were the Doberman Pinscher and the German Shepard. Doberman’s were used because they were highly intelligent and easily trainable, and has excellent guarding abilities. German Shepard’s were used because they were strong and smart and wanted to please their masters. A few jobs dogs had were: sentry dogs, scout, casualty, mascot, and messenger. These dogs were taking very high risks and being obedient which made them hero’s. ! ! The next animal is the pigeon.

Psychology reinforcement, and weakened (will happen less frequently) when followed by punishment. Operant conditioning is based on a simple basis, that behaviour is influenced by the consequences that occur after. When you are reinforced for doing something, you're more likely to do it again. When you are punished for doing something, you are less likely to do it again. An early study into operant conditioning was carried out by Skinner (1935). Skinner placed rats and pigeons in a box whereby pressing a lever resulted in food being dispensed. From the accidental knocking of the lever, the rats and pigeons rapidly learned to purposely press the lever to obtain food. Skinner was then able to teach rats and pigeons to press the lever for food, based on the presentation of different stimuli and was able to conclude that behaviour is shaped by its consequence. That is, if an animal is rewarded for doing a particular behaviour such as pecking at a circle, it will be more likely to carry out this behaviour in the future and if a pigeon is not rewarded (or even punished) for pecking at a square then it will be less likely to carry out this behaviour in the future.

Bf Skinner

...understanding of human behaviour and thus determine humans behaviour and actions. Skinner is primarily known for the establishment of reinforcement and behavioural analysis (Brace abd Byford, 2012, p146) In order to analyse behaviour, Skinner had invented the 'skinner box' (Brace and Byford, 2012, p172) in which controlled the behaviour of a rat or pigeon. This was named operant conditioning. Skinner based his operant conditioning on the foundations of Thorndike's law of effect. Skinner believed that the more a behaviour is reinforced or encouraged, the stronger it gets, whilst behaviour that isn't reinforced, becomes weakend. The majority of Skinners operant conditioning experiments were on pigeons and rats. The pigeons and rats were placed into the skinner box. Here, skinner tested the pigeon and rats ability to perform a specific behaviour in order to recieve a reward. The reward was only ever released when the required behaviour was performed. There is however a negative aspect to this because the results Skinner collected cannot be directly applied to that of a human because they are not the same species. As well as this, the pigeon or rats feelings were not taken into consideration, something that needed to be tested if being applied to a human....

If k+1 or more pigeons are distributed among k pigeonholes, then at least one pigeonhole contains two or more pigeons. Proof. The contrapositive of the statement is: If each pigeonhole contains at most one pigeon, then there are at most k pigeons. This is easily seen to be true. The same argument can be used to prove a variety of different statements. We prove the general version of the Pigeonhole Principle and leave the others as exercises. Proposition PHP2.

Molecular analysis of DNA retrieved from a dodo specimen at the Oxford University Museum of Natural Hi, England, confirms that the bird belongs firmly in the middle of the pigeon tree in evolutionary terms, storyreports a study published in the March 1 issue of the journal Science. Its closest living relative is the Nicobar pigeon, which lives in the Nicobar Islands and Southeast Asia, and it is part of a group of large island-dwelling birds that spend a great deal of time on the ground. Other modern representatives include the crowned pigeons of New Guinea and the tooth-billed pigeon of Samoa.---Extreme Evolution - So why do scientists care whether a long-extinct dumb fat bird found on only one island in the whole world was related to a pigeon or an ostrich? Island taxa such as the dodo and solitaire often represent extreme examples of evolution—and if we want to examine how we, or the life around us, evolved then such animals are very educational," said Alan Cooper, a zoologist at the University of Oxford and one of the co-authorsof the study.
