Whether the University provides technological tools and services to students or/and whether they choose themselves which one to use, it is now really difficult for a student to pursue higher education without using a digital environment. This situation leads to the emergence of two concepts: Personal Learning Environment and Customized Institutional Learning Environment. The authors define them and consider their competition or complementarity. Afterwards, through question-naires addressed to university students, they observe in which way they are famil-iar with technologies and have a «digital native» profile. Then, they interview a sample of students presenting different technological profiles to bring out their representations and uses regarding customization of their digital learning envi-ronment.

For about twenty years, prematurity has been the subject of many preventive actions. In spite of the elaboration of different screening programmes, preterm deliveries rate doesn't decrease. Some somatic risk factors are now known and are the subject of an unconditional screening in prenatal consultation. However we consider that the etiology of many preterm deliveries remain unknown and 55% of preterm cases could be idiopathic without any explanation of pathological order. The clinical observation suggests the existence of a link between preterm delivery and the psychosocial environment of the pregnant woman. According to that suggestion, they are now making a study in the university obstetrical service of the CHR Citadelle (Liege). The first part of the research has enabled to identify different risk factors such as: illegitimate pregnancy, future mother living alone, unemployed husband, no wage, stress, earlier miscarriage, social isolation, less than 2 years between 2 babies, bad satisfying pregnancy on a psychological and/or physical point of view. According to the study and literature results, a psychosocial risk screening overview has been elaborated. It would permit to identify the cases leading surely to a preterm delivery. That study is financed by a convention between the "Ministere de la Culture et des Affaires sociales de la Communaute francaise". [less ▲]

Currently, it is difficult for a student to pursue higher education without using a digital environment. This leads to the emergence the concept of Personal Learning Environment (PLE). The authors define it and consider his competition or complementarity with the digitals institutional environments. They report exploratory study results on students’ representations about their numeric learning environments and their interests about them. Data comes from questionnaires and interviews. Their analysis shows different profiles related to the PLE. Linking the results to learning theories and aspects of technical and educational design, they propose further investigation and development related to the complementarity of PLE and institutional learning environments (ILE).

In mid-1920s British Mandate Palestine, the German-born Jewish architect and planner, Richard Kauffmann (1887-1958), prepared a town planning scheme for Afula and a ‘preliminary regional development scheme for the Haifa Bay’. The topical relevance of these two experiments stands in the original relations they attempted to establish with the physical environment and the ‘geographic stage’ at a national scale. The chosen location for the foundation of the new town of Afula as an ‘intermediate agro-city’ was the barycentre of the Jezreel Valley, ‘cradle of the agricultural Communities’ and ‘core of the Jewish State’ (Koestler, 1946). Haifa, instead, was to be implemented into a major port city aimed to compete with Beirut on the international scene as the new ‘gateway to the East’, enhancing its local natural resources and features. Both schemes gain further consistency when considered within the wider frame of Zionist settlement strategy in British Mandate Palestine, especially along the Jezreel Valley, where Kauffmann also planned many agricultural settlements. Together, Kauffmann's 1920s’ projects form an early pre-State regional planning scheme. If this first comprehensive expression of the Zionist Nation-Space naïvely neglected the presence of the Arab Other, it did not entail yet the later obsession of Zionist and Israeli planning with military-led territorial conquest. Instead, the dominant theme of this early Zionist vision of the future Nation’s geographical horizon was the building of a new collective identity grounded in agriculture and the reinterpretation of local geographic possibilities: the development of an ‘ancient-modern’ transcontinental route between the Mediterranean and the Middle East. Widely overshadowed by both the official dominant Israeli architectural history and by the emerging critique, this experiment could instead open up to an alternative narrative of Zionist modern architecture and planning and usefully question present-day architectural and planning practice’s 'lost of the centre'.

Un troupeau bovin laitier composé de 50 Holstein pie-noire en stabulation libre paillée est confronté depuis six mois à une recrudescence de mammites cliniques en lactation. A l’aide des outils de médecine individuelle et de troupeau, une enzootie de mammite à Streptococcus uberis est mise en évidence, ainsi que la présence de Prototheca sp. En définissant les facteurs de risque liés à ces pathogènes, l’exploitant a diminué la pression d’infection au niveau de la traite et fait baisser la prévalence des mammites cliniques de 10 cas par mois à 2 cas par mois. Par ailleurs, la qualité du lait de tank moyenne a également pu être améliorée, de 317 000 cellules/ml au cours des six mois précédant l’intervention à 197 000 cellules/ml dans les six mois suivant. La présence de pathogènes inhabituels est anecdotique dans ce cas précis, mais constitue un signe d’une gestion déficiente des intrants alimentaires. [less ▲]

Histone deacetylases (HDACs) play a key role in regulating eukaryotic gene expression. The HDAC domain, homologous to the yeast repressors RPD3 and HDA1, is considered necessary and sufficient for enzymatic activity. Here, we show that the catalytic domain of HDAC4 interacts with HDAC3 via the transcriptional corepressor N-CoR/SMRT. All experimental conditions leading to the suppression of HDAC4 binding to SMRT/N-CoR and to HDAC3 result in the loss of enzymatic activity associated with HDAC4. In vitro reconstitution experiments indicate that HDAC4 and other class II HDACs are inactive in the context of the SMRT/N-CoR-HDAC3 complex and do not contribute to its enzymatic activity. These observations indicate that class II HDACs regulate transcription by bridging the enzymatically active SMRT/N-CoR-HDAC3 complex and select transcription factors independently of any intrinsic HDAC activity.

The French Society of Clinical Biochemistry conducted this study to compare the accuracy and performances of the best creatinine enzymatic assays and the compensated Jaffe methods from the same manufacturers. Creatinine was measured in 3 serum pools with creatinine levels of 35.9±0.9 μmol/L, 74.4±1.4 μmol/L, and 97.9±1.7 μmol/L (IDMS determination). The performances of the assays (total error that includes the contribution of bias and imprecision) were evaluated using Monte-Carlo simulations and compared against desirable NKDEP criteria. The enzymatic assays always fell within the desirable total Error of 7.6%. By contrast, this requirement was never obtained for the compensated Jaffe methods at the critical level of 74.4±1.4 μmol/L. Only the compensated Jaffe creatinine on Olympus analyzer reached this specification at 35.9±0.9 and 97.9±1.7 μmol/L levels. This study demonstrates that, despite substantial improvement regarding traceability to the IDMS reference method and precision, compensated Jaffe creatinine methods, by contrast to enzymatic ones, do not reach the desirable specifications of NKDEP at normal levels of creatinine.

The National Kidney Disease Education Program group demonstrated that MDRD equation is sensitive to creatinine measurement error, particularly at higher glomerular filtration rates. Thus, MDRD-based eGFR above 60 mL/min/1.73 m2 should not be reported numerically. However, little is known about the impact of analytical error on CKD-EPI-based estimates. This study aimed at assessing the impact of analytical characteristics (bias and imprecision) of 12 enzymatic and 4 compensated Jaffe previously characterized creatinine assays on MDRD and CKD-EPI eGFR. In a simulation study, the impact of analytical error was assessed on a hospital population of 24 084 patients. Ability using each assay to correctly classify patients according to chronic kidney disease (CKD) stages was evaluated. For eGFR between 60 and 90 mL/min/1.73 m2, both equations were sensitive to analytical error. Compensated Jaffe assays displayed high bias in this range and led to poorer sensitivity/specificity for classification according to CKD stages than enzymatic assays. As compared to MDRD equation, CKD-EPI equation decreases impact of analytical error in creatinine measurement above 90 mL/min/1.73 m2. Compensated Jaffe creatinine assays lead to important errors in eGFR and should be avoided. Accurate enzymatic assays allow estimation of eGFR until 90 mL/min/1.73 m2 with MDRD and 120 mL/min/1.73 m2 with CKD-EPI equation. [less ▲]
