In the western part of the Hainaut province in Belgium, a dynamic network of several farms intentionally incorporates biodiversity within their practices and across multiple scales. While it is suggested that such diversification of agricultural practices supports ecological processes in turn favoring biomass production and providing other ecosystem services (ES) to society, few studies have actually attested this fact. A recent review by Kremen and Miles (2012) comparing the provision of 12 ES in organic and conventional systems concludes that ‘integrated whole-system studies of the influence of different farming practices on multiples ES are critically needed’; a conclusion confirmed by the few existing farm-scale ES assessments. This research’s goal is to fulfill this gap by providing comprehensive knowledge about the socio-ecological performance of such systems. To achieve this, we rely on the tool of integrated ES assessment, which includes both a biophysical and a social valuation. Such value-pluralism is of high relevance in agricultural contexts, where multiple values are required to capture the diversity of needs and wants that nature can contribute to fulfill for society and individuals. With the aim to get better insights into societal values, a ‘field thesis committee’ was launched. This latter one includes local farmers and citizens who are consulted throughout the research. For instance, at the start of the project, a participative ES selection was organized to guide the research towards ES important in the eyes of local stakeholders. The presentation first introduces the innovative multi-actor and multi-disciplinary approach developed in this project. Preliminary results are then presented and interpreted. We believe our approach can bring significant contribution to body of knowledge on the reconciliation of social and environmental expectancies. [less ▲]

The necrotizing fasciitis is a medico-surgical emergency, characterized by the rapid speard of the infection in the subcutaneous tissue, involving fascia superficialis. Peaucity of cutaneous findings early in the course of the disease makes diagnosis a challenge for physician. Pain out of proportion to clinical findings, fever and signs of systemic toxicity are the keys in identification of necrotizing fasciitis. Delayed diagnosis lead to sepsis syndrom and/or multiple organ failure and correlate with poor oucome. Radiolographs, CT-scan or MRI are main radiologic studies, but such procedures should never delay surgical intervention. Intravenous antibiotics, fluid and electrolyte management and analgesia are needed in addition to radical debridment. Clindamycin, hyperbaric oxygen therapy and intravenous immunoglobulins are discussed treatments. Only prompt recognition and immediat care warrant a lower mortality and morbidity for this life-threatening infection. [less ▲]

BUCHAREST-PRINCETON SEMINAR IN EARLY MODERN PHILOSOPHY 14th Edition Organized by the Research Centre for the Foundations of Modern Thought (FME), University of Bucharest, in collaboration with the Philosophy Department at Princeton University 8 – 13 July 2014 Bran, Romania De rerum natura: Naturalism, Super-naturalism, Unnaturalism Invited speakers include: Daniel Garber (Princeton University), Roger Ariew (University of South Florida), Igor Agostini (Università del Salento), Peter Anstey (University of Sydney), Olivier Dubouclez (Université de Liège), Tamás Pavlovits (University of Szeged), Jennifer Rampling (Princeton) Description : https://ci3.googleusercontent.com/proxy/8CBWEZYl_gju-O0mEKjDNw0Eh_qIbYUu1oZBKfZqOypmLO1gU9NfBBUnKK5HrwoN-VKG8iQn_PvQpZDlbxq0IwVL9dQOy_HcGJ0=s0-d-e1-ft#https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/images/cleardot.gif Some Seventeenth Century authors gave a new definition of nature, clearly articulated in terms of natural laws and of their dependence on God. Even if some elder tensions, coming from the Stoic and Epicurean heritage, were thus released, new challenges appeared, related to the limits of nature (is the world finite or infinite?), the structure of matter, the status of the mind and the status of the human being with respect to nature. While some philosophers as Bruno, Telesio and Cardano tried to reach a compromise with Renaissance vitalism, promoting a natural magic and a new alchemy, some others, such Bacon, Descartes, Spinoza, Leibniz, proposed radical different paths. Not losing sight of the manner in which ancient thought (Pliny and Lucretius seem to be naturally summoned) informed modern debate over nature, the seminar will try to uncover a period in which Spinoza could articulate his critique of Descartes as holding a view of man as "imperium in imperio". The Bucharest-Princeton Seminar in Early Modern Philosophy is an international annual meeting of scholars interested in various aspects of early modern thought. The aim of the seminar is to create a stimulating environment for discussing papers and ideas. It includes workshops in the morning and presentations of papers in the afternoon, where participants can present work in progress. While the morning sessions will focus on the theme of “De rerum natura: Naturalism, Super-naturalism, Unnaturalism,” the afternoon sessions seek to give participants an opportunity to discuss their own special interests with an open and sympathetic audience of students and scholars with broad interests in early modern thought. Throughout we try to maintain a balance between the high scholarly level and the informal friendly spirit of a colloquium. The Seminar will take place in Bran, a small mountain resort near Brasov, in Transylvania. It will be hosted in a small, friendly Bed and Breakfast (single or double rooms). The participation fee is 150 EUR for faculty and 90 EUR for students (covering accommodation with breakfast). We invite applications for contributions (from researchers) and for attendance (from students). If you want to contribute a paper, please send a CV and a one-page abstract, and if you want to attend, a CV and a letter of intent – by April 20 – to Vlad Alexandrescu (valexandrescu@gmail.com), Dana Jalobeanu (dana.jalobeanu@celfis.ro).

A previous study in Belgium revealed that genetic material of Fasciola sp. was present in four local snail species: Galba truncatula, Radix peregra, Radix ovata and Lymnaea stagnalis. Laboratory cultures of these four species were experimentally infected with F. hepatica. The collected metacercariae were fed to rats and the infection in that vertebrate hosts was monitored through several techniques. The mortality rates in the breeding unit was less than 10 % in G. truncatula, R. peregra, and L. stagnalis colonies. Microscopy revealed the presence of larval stages in 78.3 % and 48 % of G. truncatula and R. peregra snails, respectively. These data were confirmed by a PCR that amplifies a parasite specific sequence. R. peregra shed fewer metacercariae and more irregularly than G. truncatula. In R. ovata and L. stagnalis the infection rates were low. Specific DNA was detected in both cases by PCR but no metacercariae were shed. The metacercariae shed by R. peregra were as infective to rats as those from G. truncatula. The PCR technique was more sensitive than microscopic examination. This study demonstrated that R. peregra may act as an accidental intermediate host for F. hepatica in Belgium. [less ▲]

A previous study conducted in Belgium revealed that genetic material of Fasciola sp. was present in snail species belonging to the genus Radix. Here, these snails were collected and identified by DNA-based techniques as Radix labiata and Radix balthica. These two species and Galba truncatula (the major intermediate host in Europe) were experimentally infected with Fasciola hepatica. The resulting metacercariae were fed to rats and the infection was monitored using several techniques. Microscopy revealed the presence of larval stages in 78.3, 45, and 6.25% of G. truncatula, R. labiata, and R. balthica snails, respectively. These results were confirmed by a PCR that amplifies a Fasciola sp. specific sequence. Furthermore, this PCR was found to be more sensitive than microscopic examination. R. labiata shed fewer metacercariae than G. truncatula but these were as infective to rats as those shed by G. truncatula. This study demonstrates that R. labiata may act as an incidental intermediate host for F hepatica in Belgium. (C) 2007 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved. [less ▲]

La presente ricerca aveva lo scopo di studiare le influenze dello stile di attaccamento adulto sulla qualità del supporto emotivo fra il paziente oncologico e il suo caregiver di riferimento e sull’alleanza di lavoro con i medici di reparto, durante il ricovero in una struttura hospice, specializzata nella gestione della fase terminale della malattia. Poiché lo stile di attaccamento adulto sembra giocare un ruolo importante nella gestione dello stress psicologico percepito dall’individuo nelle circostanze stressanti e nella capacità di fare affidamento sugli altri (Florian & Mikulincer, 1998), abbiamo ipotizzato che anche nella condizione di disagio estremo della fase terminale di una malattia, l’attaccamento sicuro potesse aiutare il soggetto ad affrontare le difficoltà del momento e che, invece, un attaccamento insicuro tendesse ad aumentare la vulnerabilità e l’angoscia (Mikulincer & Orbach, 1995). Lo studio si è proposto di verificare l’ipotesi secondo cui lo stile di attaccamento tenda a influenzare due aspetti importanti della fase terminale della malattia: la qualità del supporto emotivo dato dalla relazione con il caregiver e la qualità dell’alleanza di lavoro con il medico curante. Ci aspettavamo che i malati con attaccamento sicuro tendessero a percepire più positivamente la qualità del supporto emotivo con il caregiver e, analogamente, a valutare più favorevolmente l’alleanza di lavoro con il medico, rispetto ai pazienti insicuri.

"FASST" stands for "fMRI Artefact rejection and Sleep Scoring Toolbox". This M/EEG toolbox is developed by researchers from the Cyclotron Research Centre, University of Li ege, Belgium, with the financial support of the Fonds de la Recherche Scienti que-FNRS, the Queen Elizabeth's funding, and the University of Li ege. On Dr. Pierre Maquet's impulse we started writing these tools to analyze our sleep EEG-fMRI data and tackle four crucial issues: * Continuous M/EEG. Long multi-channel recording of M/EEG data can be enormous. These data are cumbersome to handle as it usually involves displaying, exploring, comparing, chunking, appending data sets, etc. * EEG-fMRI. When recording EEG and fMRI data simultaneously, the EEG signal acquired contains, on top of the usual neural and ocular activity, artefacts induced by the gradient switching and high static eld of an MR scanner. The rejection of theses artefacts is not easy especially when dealing with brain spontaneous activity. * Scoring M/EEG. Reviewing and scoring continuous M/EEG recordings, such as is common with sleep recordings, is a tedious task as the scorer has to manually browse through the entire data set and give a \score" to each time-window displayed. * Waves detection. Continuous and triggerless recordings of M/EEG data show specifi c wave patterns, characteristic of the subject's state (e.g., sleep spindles or slow waves). Their automatic detection is thus important to assess those states. [less ▲]
