BACKGROUND: The escalating ageing population in the western world has led to an increased incidence of superficial fungal infections. The most common infections include onychomycosis, tinea pedis and tinea cruris. With the increasing life expectancy, the prevalence of onychomycosis and other superficial fungal infections is likely to increase further without adequate prevention and treatment. Objective: To study the prevalence of foot mycoses in Europe. METHOD: The Achilles project represents a survey of 90,085 subjects from 16 European countries. RESULTS: Approximately half of the total screened population had evidence of fungal foot infection, with tinea pedis and onychomycosis affecting one quarter of these individuals. Advancing age showed an unfavourable effect on the prevalence of these infections. CONCLUSION: As the number of aged people in developed countries continues to increase, skin diseases will constitute a greater pharmaco-economic concern of worldwide healthcare. Better recognition by clinicians and patients of mycotic foot disease will help prevent direct morbidity and further complications. [less ▲]

They were mineralogically identified as opal-A and show two concentric growth zones: A massive light colored inner one, and a darker outer zone with a spongy texture. On the surface the presence of some filaments probably of algae suggest biomineralisation. Chemically the outer zone shows impurities with high values of Cl and P. The leaching of bird nest guano may be the source of P. The two zones were probably formed in two different climatic conditions, the outer one in the current wet and vegetated period, and the inner zone during a former drier period. [less ▲]

Opal-CT precipitation controlling dissolved Si export Dissolved Si (DSi) exported by rivers are controlled by geological, hydrological and biological cycle processes [1]. The DSi concentrations measured in a river of an upstream catchment in eastern Belgium (Blégny, Land of Herve) don’t vary seasonally (6.91±0.94mgL-1; n=363). Si concentrations in pore water are often higher and vary more (8.65±3.65mgL-1; n=128). The decrease of DSi along the flowpath of water is due to sink processes, i.e. precipitation, adsorption or uptake by vegetation. As the DSi in the river does not show any seasonal variation, uptake by vegetation can be ruled out [1] whereas precipitation or adsorption can control the DSi drained by the stream water. This hypothesis is confirmed by XRD and DeMaster analysis. At 0.1m depth the soil is constituted of 62% quartz, 7% K-feldspar, 6% plagioclase, 3.2% carbonates, 18.9% Al-clay, 1.47% Kaolinite, 0.63% Chlorite and 0.2% amorphous Si, probably of biogenic origin. At 1.5m depth, the amounts of several minerals (35.8% quartz, 0.6% K-feldspars, 0.9% plagioclase, Al-clay 14.7%) drop drastically. Carbonates, chlorite and kaolinite are absent whereas 40.4% opal-CT appears. The precipitation of opal-CT controls the DSi export of this catchment. Development of geochemical transport model To descripe DSi export from a catchment a geochemical transport model is developped in HP1 which couples the water flux model Hydrus with the geochemical model PHREEQC [2]. Our model is based on the conceptual model developped in [3]. First results show different DSi export dynamics in the unsaturated zone than in the aquifer due to different pCO2 values and varying soil moisture conditions. Further development of the model will help to find out the reason of opal-CT precipitation in this setting. [1]Fulweiler, Nixon (2005) Biogeochemistry 74:115–130.

Au printemps 2011, les Recteurs des universités de la Fédération Wallonie-Bruxelles et le Fonds de la Recherche Scientifique – FNRS (F.R.S.-FNRS) ont émis le souhait de voir mener une étude sur le développement de l’Open Access en Belgique francophone. Ils ont décidé de confier la réalisation de celle-ci à la Bibliothèque Interuniversitaire de la Communauté française de Belgique (BICfB). La présente étude fait le point sur le développement des dépôts institutionnels (Voie Verte) des universités de la Fédération Wallonie-Bruxelles et apporte un éclairage sur l'implication active des enseignants et chercheurs de leurs institutions (en tant qu’éditeur en chef, membre du comité de rédaction, peer-reviewer, etc.) dans la vie de revues scientifiques en Open Access (Voie d’Or) ou tout au moins accessibles gratuitement sur le web.

Since the “serial price crisis”, no institution in the world has been able anymore to provide to scholars with the scientific literature they need. Although it was the first reason why the scientific community developed Open Access initiatives, it’s absolutely not the only one. Nowadays, the awareness has become so large that many research players have put OA on the agenda (NIH, WHO, H2020, Wellcome Trust, FRS-FNRS…). The two main existing complementary ways will be described (Green and Gold) and Fools’ Gold will be denounced (unfair gold, hybrid journals, predatory journals). The University of Liege is one of the world leaders in OA with Green and Gold initiatives. What benefits can scholars expect from OA as authors and as readers on the basis of that experience?

During January 2004, a sequence of 68 UV images of Saturn's southern aurora was obtained by the Hubble Space Telescope (HST), coordinated with measurements of the upstream interplanetary conditions made by the Cassini spacecraft. Using the poleward edge of the observed aurora as a proxy for the open-closed field line boundary, the open flux content of the southern polar region has been estimated. It is found to range from 15 to 50 GWb during the interval, such a large variation providing evidence of a significant magnetospheric interaction with the solar wind, in particular with structures associated with corotating interaction regions (CIRs). Cassini measurements of the upstream interplanetary conditions have been used to estimate the rate of open flux production at the magnetopause. By comparison with the open flux values obtained from the images, the rate of open flux closure in Saturn's magnetotail is also estimated. We find that the rate of open flux production is high (200 kV) in the high-field strength intervals following the onset of CIR-related compressions, and elevated (30-40 kV) in an intermediate-field strength rarefaction region. High flux closure rates (100-200 kV) are estimated in association with the onset of solar wind compressions and are intermittently increased (30-60 kV) during a weak-field rarefaction region. The disturbed auroral forms seen in the images are discussed in relation to the estimated reconnection rates. Recent studies have suggested that Saturn Kilometric Radiation emissions are also disturbed by the onset of CIR compressions at Saturn. [less ▲]

During 8-30 January 2004, a sequence of 68 UV images of Saturn's southern aurora was obtained by the Hubble Space Telescope (HST), coordinated for the first time with measurements of the upstream interplanetary conditions made by the Cassini spacecraft. Using the poleward edge of the observed aurora as a proxy for the open-closed field line boundary, the open flux content of the southern polar region has been estimated. It is found to range from similar to 15 to similar to 50 GWb during the interval, such a large variation providing evidence of a significant magnetospheric interaction with the solar wind, in particular with the interplanetary structures associated with corotating interaction regions (CIRs). The open flux is found to decline slowly during a rarefaction region in which the interplanetary magnetic field remained very weak, while decreasing sharply in association with the onset of CIR-related solar wind compressions. Such decreases are indicative of the dominating role of open flux closure in Saturn's tail during these intervals. Increases in open flux are found to occur in the higher-field compression regions after the onsets, and in a following rarefaction region of intermediate field strength. These increases are indicative of the dominating role of open flux production at Saturn's magnetopause during these intervals. The rate of open flux production has been estimated from the upstream interplanetary data using an empirical formula based on experience at Earth, with typical values varying from similar to 10 kV during the weak-field rarefaction region, to similar to 200 kV during the strong-field compression. These values have been integrated over time between individual HST image sets to estimate the total open flux produced during these intervals. Comparison with the changes in open flux obtained from the auroral images then allows us to estimate the amount of open flux closed during these intervals, and hence the averaged tail reconnection rates. Intermittent intervals of tail reconnection at rates of similar to 30-60 kV are inferred in rarefaction regions, while compression regions are characterised by rates of similar to 100-200 kV, these values representing averages over the similar to 2-day intervals between HST image sequences.

Les notions d’Open Linking, d’OpenURL, de sensibilité au contexte ou de copie appropriée sont largement répandues désormais dans le monde de l’information scientifique, même si on ne sait pas toujours précisément ce qui se cache sous cette terminologie un peu mystérieuse. Un système d’Open Linking permet, sur Internet et dans un cadre documentaire, de relier entre elles toutes les informations relatives à un sujet particulier grâce à des adresses URL/URI qui portent le nom d’OpenURL. Ces liens OpenURL sont créés dynamiquement à la suite de re-cherches bibliographiques et permettent de rebondir vers d’autres ressources électroniques proposant des in-formations complémentaires liées à la référence de départ et dont l’accès est autorisé pour l’utilisateur. La norme ANSI/NISO Z39.88 définit la syntaxe des liens OpenURL ainsi que les métadonnées, identifiants et protocoles d’échange de communication qui peuvent y être incorporés. [less ▲]
