This symposium proposes presentations related to nurse educators competencies and the challenges links to their new roles. The evolution of the nurses training at the European level asks the teacher to develop high-level disciplinary skills but also educational skills. There are lots of challenges to develop nurse educator competencies. The role of the teachers is not any more to transmit disciplinary knowledge but to become experts in group management, colleagues teamwork, reflective practice, and construction of active learning situations in a socio constructivist model. These changes of roles also have an impact on the professional identity of the teachers. The various presentations will approach successively these ideas: 1. A proposal for a Competencies Benchmarking of Nurse Educators The aim of this presentation is to characterize the nursing teachers concepts on their professionalism,roles, competences and their identities construction. 2. Educational knowledge in teaching in nursing This presentation examine the teachers conceptions about teaching nursing and professional knowledge about teaching in higher education. 3. Construction of teaching/learning to care from the perspective of nursing teacher This presentation analyses the facilities and difficulties of nurse teacher in their role. 4. The OSCE, an educational project who support the development of the nurse teacher competencies A model for the implementation of a reflexive approach for the nursing training: challenges for the nurse teachers [less ▲]

Although karstic weathering (sensu lato) is a major concern for the exploitation of limestone quarries, the importance, spatial extension, and intensity of this natural phenomenon are rarely investigated because of the lack of applicable technique to assess these variables other than subsurface geophysical exploration methods. Here, we propose to use the intrinsic property of ghost-rock weathering, tectonic control, to predict the degree and type of weathering of the reserve of two contiguous limestone quarries in the Tournai area (western Belgium). First, we revised the macrotectonic setting of these quarries, creating five tectonic entities. Then, we built an extensive fracture database (1357 ‘events’), recording fracture direction, dip, width, height, mineralization, and weathering. Then, we calculated a “Sterile Index” that is a simple function of the relative occurrence and mean width of karstified fractures. The rose diagrams of fracture orientations are contrasted between tectonic entities and so are the intensity and the dominant type of weathering: tectonic entities with widely dispersed fracture directions are significantly more weathered than entities with narrowly dispersed rose diagrams. Preliminary tests indicate fracture orientation and weathering are consistent within the tectonic entities, allowing extrapolation to quarries reserves. Ultimately, this technique can be used to predict the rock waste volume of the quarries reserves (when combined with geophysical exploration methods) and manage the development of the quarries accordingly.

La diplomacia pública es una actividad de comunicación política internacional en cuya práctica destaca Estados Unidos por ser el país donde primero se desarrolla e institucionaliza. Después del decaimiento posterior a la Guerra Fría, la diplomacia pública de este país experimentó una renovada importancia tras los atentados del 11-S. La "guerra contra el terror" promovida por la Administración Bush se acompañó de estrategias de diplomacia pública diseñadas para lograr apoyos a la lucha contra el terrorismo y disminuir los niveles de antiamericanismo. En este libro se ofrece un marco que recoge los aspectos teóricos más relevantes en el estudio de la diplomacia pública, para posteriormente ofrecer una visión histórica de la diplomacia pública estadounidense y la "guerra contra el terror". Además, se propone un modelo de análisis para la diplomacia mediática y se aplica al discurso de George W. Bush. [less ▲]

The submarine part of the North Anatolian Fault (NAF) is a very significant hazard for the 12 million people living in Istanbul (Turkey). An accurate seismic risk assessment necessitates paleoseismological data, which can be retrieved in the Marmara Sea by using sedimentary cores. We present here a record of turbidites obtained in cores spanning the Tekirdag ̆ Basin, the Western High, the Central Basin, and the Cinarcik Basin. In the Tekirdag and Western High the turbidites are synchronous pointing to shaking by earthquakes as a triggering mechanism. Generally seismoturbidites in the Marmara Sea are distinguished from other turbidites based in their large extension, their particular granulometric and their particular geochemical characteristics. The 210Pb and 137Cs radionucleides measurements have also shown that the M=7.4 1912 Mürefte earthquake and the M=7.3 1894 Prince's Island earthquake have left a distinctive sedimentary imprint at the top of the studied cores. The chronology of other seismoturbidites is built combining radiocarbon dating and secular variation patterns of paleo-declination and paleo-inclination. Finally the obtained record is compared to the historical seismicity record. [less ▲]

There are currently only six known high mass X-­‐ray binaries (HMXBs) that also exhibit MeV, GeV, and/or TeV emission ("gamma-­‐ray binaries"). Expanding the sample of gamma-­‐ray binaries and identifying unknown Fermi sources are currently of great interest to the community. Based upon their positional coincidence with the unidentified Fermi sources 1FGL J1127.7-­‐6244c and 1FGL J1808.5-­‐1954c, the Be stars HD 99771 and HD 165783 have been proposed as gamma-­‐ray binary candidates. During Fermi Cycle 4, we have performed multiwavelength observations of these sources using XMM-­‐Newton and the CTIO 1.5m telescope. We do not confirm high energy emission from the Be stars. Here we examine other X-­‐ray sources in the X-­‐ray sources in the field of view that are potential counterparts to the Fermi sources. [less ▲]

Introduction : Le projet TADAM, une étude contrôlée randomisée, comparait un nouveau traitement assisté par héroïne avec des traitements existants par méthadone à Liège, en Belgique. Nous avons réalisé une étude qualitative sur l'attitude des personnes dépendantes de l'héroïne envers ce type de projet, ainsi que sur l'attitude des intervenants d'institutions de soins travaillant avec ces personnes Méthode : Avant qu'un patient ne soit inclus dans le projet TADAM, il lui était demandé d'expliquer pourquoi il souhaitait rentrer en traitement (n=80). Des interviews ont également été réalisées auprès de consommateurs d'héroïne non inclus dans le projet, avant la période d'inclusion (n=65), au milieu de celle-ci (n=30) et dans ses derniers mois (n=23). Pendant le projet, des interviews ont également été réalisées auprès d'intervenants travaillant dans des institutions de soins pour personnes dépendantes de substances, soit de manière individuelle (n=10), soit en groupe (n=6) pour connaître leur attitude face au projet TADAM. Résultats : De nombreux patients souhaitaient rentrer dans ce projet pour améliorer leurs conditions de vie. La raison principale de ne pas rentrer dans ce type de traitement était la peur de devenir plus dépendant. Cette raison était renforcée par le fait que le traitement par héroïne proposé ne durait que 12 mois et les patients s'inquiétaient de leur situation après ce traitement : ils avaient peur d'être plus dépendants et donc dans une situation plus difficile qu'avant le traitement. L'attitude des intervenants étaient plutôt favorable mais prudente. Conclusion : Contrairement aux craintes préalables, les usagers d'héroïne ne se précipitent pas en masse et sans réfléchir vers un traitement assisté par héroïne. Certains réfléchissent longtemps avant de s'y engager. Une information précise et un traitement sans durée minimum sont nécessaires. [less ▲]

Aim. The objective of this study was to use in vivo PET/CT imaging as a validation tool for a novel human colorectal carcinoma model being developed in chicken chorioallantoic membrane (CAM). For this initial pilot study a cell line modeling colon cancer was selected and imaged using [18F]fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG). <br />Materials and methods. A window was made in the shell of fertilized chicken eggs and 3x106 SW1222 human colorectal carcinoma cells were implanted at day 10 post-fertilization. On day 17 the shell window was enlarged to allow direct injection of FDG (12.2 ± 4.5 MBq/egg) into a CAM blood vessel. During injection the egg was warmed on a heating pad. A mixture of ketamine/medetomidine (50 :1 mg/ml, 0.2 ml/egg) was injected into the albumin in some eggs to assess the effect of anesthesia. After FDG injection the egg was returned to the incubator for a 45 min uptake period before imaging. Imaging was performed on a Siemens Focus 120 microPET with structural CT on a General Electric eXplore CT120. A Minerve cell system allowed reproducible positioning between modalities. PET data was acquired in list mode before histogramming into a single 10 min frame for reconstruction using a 3D maximum a posteriori (MAP) method with all corrections except scatter. A standard 100 µm (theoretical) image resolution protocol (70 kV, 50 mA, 32 ms, 220 views) was used to obtain structural CT data. Image coregistration was performed in PMOD version 3.3. In a separate egg, the influence of added contrast on the CT data was investigated by adding iodinated contrast agent (Iobitridol 35 mgI/ml) to the albumin. <br />Results. FDG uptake was clear in chick and tumor, with notably high uptake at the major joints. Tumors were identified by localization of FDG uptake on the surface of the CAM. A lack of soft tissue contrast between tumor, CAM and albumin made precise structural identification of the tumor difficult. Anesthesia was crucial to image quality in both PET and CT. CT contrast between the soft tissues of the chick and surrounding albumin/structures was improved by addition of contrast agent. <br />Conclusion. For the first time we demonstrate successful imaging of FDG uptake in a human colorectal carcinoma chicken CAM model in ovo. Methods to improve structural data are under investigation and will be used in further studies. With such improvement, this model could be of great value to PET oncology imaging. [less ▲]

This paper is the first of a series considering the properties of distribution of nearby galaxies in the low density regions. Among 7596 galaxies with radial velocities V_{LG}<3500 km/s, absolute magnitudes M_K<-18.4^m$, and Galactic latitudes |b| >15 degr there are 3168 field galaxies (i.e. 42%) that do not belong to pairs, groups or clusters in the Local universe. Applying to this sample the percolation method with a radius of r_0=2.8 Mpc, we found 226 diffuse agglomerates with n>=4 number of members. The structures of eight most populated objects among them (n>=25) are discussed. These non-virialized agglomerates are characterized by a median dispersion of radial velocities of about 170 km/s, the linear size of around 6 Mpc, integral K-band luminosity of 3*10^{11} L_sun, and a formal virial-mass-to-luminosity ratio of about 700 M_sun/L_sun. The mean density contrast for the considered agglomerates is only <Delta n/\bar{n}\gtrsim 5, and their crossing time is about 30-40 Gyr. [less ▲]
