Context: Family physicians are large producers of knowledge. The site of Wonca Europe provides access to almost 20,000 abstracts produced by family physicians since 1995 (from Europe) and 1998 (from World Conferences). On the occasion of 20 years of Wonca Europe, an editorial committee selected 100 of the best abstracts and has asked each author (or a substitute) to make a chapter for the Wonca Book published in 2015 at the Wonca Europe congress. The content analysis of medical texts is generally achieved by the use of MeSH. To fill gaps in MeSH, a specific family medicine classification has been developed under the name Core Content Classification of General Practice / Family Medicine (3CGP). A combination of ICPC + Q-Codes (new tool for non-clinical items) provides just fewer than 900 concepts for analyzing the contents of specific texts to family medicine. Method: The 100 chapters of the Wonca Book 2015 were analyzed using 3CGP by a single observer not involved in the editorial committee of the book. Every text has been carefully read and a maximum of two concepts by chapter were reported in an Excel spreadsheet. Result: 150 codes were used of which 143 from the classification of non-clinical items Q-codes and 7 coming from ICPC. Among the topics discussed by 143 authors and identified by Q-codes, 35 relate to knowledge management which includes family medicine education, 29 codes concern research and development, 29 doctor's specific area, 24 patients’ issues, 11 relate to the structure and 8 deal with ethics. Discussion: Despite limitations (unique observer – not validated tools) the study reveals striking facts. It is noted that the editorial board has favored themes that affect the structure and organization of knowledge of the profession. Clinical items or affecting directly the patients are very poorly represented. More about 3CGP on http://docpatient.net/3CGP The chapter of the book are also used as source of knowledge in the Q-Codes content study (ongoing) available on www.hetop.eu (inscription needed) [less ▲]

Business failure has been one of the most investigated topics in the finance and the strategic literature during the last seven decades. However, most of this literature has been heavily focused on business failure prediction (with a clear focus on short-term prediction) and, simultaneously, only a few studies have investigated business failure prevention, focusing on understanding how a company may fail through "failure paths" and on the identification of very early warning financial and non-financial signals and symptoms. This may be explained by a conceptual difficulty to exactly represent what business failure prevention may mean and by a practical difficulty to build a financial indicator really allowing to announce a bankruptcy at least three years or more in advance, giving then time to potential corporate recovery. With this paper, we then propose an investigation of this concept of "Business Failure Prevention" and we test on a sample of 6 250 Belgian SMEs the ability of a specific financial indicator (referred as "Economic Added Result" and based on the amount of accounting value added which remains within a company when it has paid for its internal and external production factors) to effectively predict a business failure at least three years before it happens.

In Europe, farmers have to manage larger herds but, at the same time, want to have a normal social life. So, the automatic milking system (AMS) can bring solutions. This technology implies in most cases, the cessation of grazing although grazing is appreciated by the consumers who consider it to be a natural practice. At the experimental farm of the University of Liege, the concept of a mobile milking robot has been developed with a private company. The prototype is used indoors during the winter season and is moved outdoors during the grazing season in pastures romote from the farm. [less ▲]

The age of a particle of a seawater constituent is defined to be the time elapsed since the particle under consideration left the region, in which its age is prescribed to be zero. An Eulerian theory of the age is presented, in which advection, diffusion, production and destruction phenomena are properly accounted for. The key hypothesis is that the mean age of a set of particles is to be evaluated as the mass-weighted average of the ages of the particles under study. The basic variable is the concentration distribution function, representing, at a given time and location, the distribution over the age of the concentration of the constituent being considered. This function satisfies a partial differential equation, which, upon appropriate integration over the age, yields the equations, in flux form, governing the evolution of the concentration and the age concentration. The ratio of the latter variable to the former is the mean age. Further theoretical developments are presented, including a thought experiment showing that mixing processes cause the ages of various constituents to be different from each other. The potential of the age as a tool for understanding complex marine flows is briefly demonstrated by analysing the results of two numerical models. The ages of a passive tracer, a radioactive tracer and the water are computed, along with a suitably defined radio-age. First, the fate of tracers released into the English Channel at La Hague is simulated. Then, ages are computed in the World Ocean as a measure of the time that has elapsed since leaving the surface layers. A theorem is demonstrated, which specifies that the age of the radioactive tracer must be smaller than the relevant radio-age, the latter being smaller than the age of the passive tracer, which, under appropriate hypotheses, can be seen to be equivalent to the age of the water. These inequalities seem to be remarkably robust, since they are found to hold valid in most of the numerical and analytical results examined in the present study. On the other hand, a dimensionless number is highlighted, which is believed to play an important role in the scaling of the differences between ages. (C) 2001 Elsevier Science B.V.

The age of seawater and the age of real or idealized tracers are often used as diagnostic tools to better understand complex hydrodynamic flows. In most studies, the focus is on some averages of the ages of the different particles making up a water parcel. The theory developed in Delhez et al. [Ocean Modell. I (1999) 17] and Deleersnijder et al. [J. Mar. Syst. 28 (2001) 229] provides, however, a more detailed description of the distribution of the ages of these particles through the so-called concentration distribution function. In this paper, the numerical aspects of the resolution of the evolution equation for the concentration distribution function in a five-dimensional space (time x 3D space x age dimension) are developed. Evolution equations for the moments of the concentration distribution function up to any order are also derived. A real case application of this theory to the simulation of the advection-dispersion of tracers (technetium-99) discharged at the nuclear fuel reprocessing plant of Cap de La Hague is described. The comparison of the results with those from previous studies demonstrates the advantages of the new method for the computation of the mean age. In particular, the method provides a detailed description of the temporal variations of the mean age only. The analysis of the full concentration distribution function and of its basic statistics shows that the standard deviation of the age of the different particles is far from negligible and should never be overlooked when analyzing age fields. A simplified analytical example suggests that the standard deviation of the age distribution is a measure of the integrated diffusion undergone by the tracer along its path from the source to the observation point.

The first prong of Article 82 of the EC Treaty, which prohibits abuses of a dominant position, requires, prior to the identification of abusive behaviour, evidence that the firm under scrutiny enjoys a dominant position. Surprisingly, this issue seems to be sometimes overlooked. Enforcers, practitioners and scholars have recently paid greater attention to the concept of abuse than to the question of dominance when discussing Article 82 EC. This should not, however, be interpreted as a sign that the law of dominance is clear. Quite to the contrary, the concept of dominance raises a wide array of questions which are discussed in the sections that follow [less ▲]
