The characterization of exozodiacal light emission is both important for the understanding of planetary systems evolution and for the preparation of future space missions aiming to characterize low mass planets in the habitable zone of nearby main sequence stars. The Large Binocular Telescope Interferometer (LBTI) exozodi survey aims at providing a ten-fold improvement over current state of the art, measuring dust emission levels down to a typical accuracy of 12 zodis per star, for a representative ensemble of 30+ high priority targets. Such measurements promise to yield a final accuracy of about 2 zodis on the median exozodi level of the targets sample. Reaching a 1 σ measurement uncertainty of 12 zodis per star corresponds to measuring interferometric cancellation ("null") levels, i.e visibilities at the few 100 ppm uncertainty level. We discuss here the challenges posed by making such high accuracy mid-infrared visibility measurements from the ground and present the methodology we developed for achieving current best levels of 500 ppm or so. We also discuss current limitations and plans for enhanced exozodi observations over the next few years at LBTI. [less ▲]

Orienting healthcare towards people-centred primary care is one of the four policy directions for the renewal of primary healthcare outlined in the World Health Report 2008, Primary Health Care: Now More than Ever - along with universal coverage, health in all policies and more inclusive health governance. During the Fourth Geneva Conference on Person- centred Medicine, WHO organized a session on policies and health system interventions that help make care more people- centred. Case studies from Chile, New Zealand, Spain (Basque Region) and Uganda illustrated that the implementation of people-centred care (PCC) varies greatly across countries. Despite these variations, three key lessons emerge. First - efforts to make care more people-centred may more likely succeed when they are linked to or are part of other major drivers of change such as improving equity in health, establishing rights or addressing chronic diseases. Second - such efforts tend to be long-term processes that require sustained political will and leadership as well as consistency over time. Top-down, supply-driven reforms need to be complemented with bottom-up, demand-driven measures to facilitate change. Third - participation of all interested parties (policy-makers, providers and users) as well as other sectors is vital for ensuring success. The case studies suggest that people-centred care is more likely to succeed when it is implemented using system- wide approaches that make use of multiple policy instruments intervening at different levels while guaranteeing sustainable financing and alignment of financial incentives.

In Belgium, since the 1st of February 2007, Sentence Implementation Courts (SIC) have been responsible for granting early release to prisoners serving a sen- tence of more than three years. Far from the traditional idea of a ritualised justice (Garapon 2001), this court “does not judge” but makes decisions. These decisions are not produced through the syllogistic reasoning of some judges mechanically applying general rules to specific cases (Beccaria 2006). They rather depend on complex organising processes, enacted by various professional groups: SIC mag- istrates, prison governors, prison clerks, Prison Psychosocial Team (PST), and Prison Central Administration (Halliday et al. 2009). Those professionals are pro- ducing and making sense of diverse documents (Freeman 2006). This chapter looks at the process through which judicial decisions are made by the SIC. It aims at accounting for the cooperation between the stakeholders. The formal coordination between the professional groups will be depicted, as well as their concrete practices and interactions. In doing so, we will emphasise the importance of documents as “boundary objects” (Star and Griesemer 1989) supporting professionals’ cooperation. We will also analyse how “sensemaking” (Weick et al. 2005) underlies collective action across time and space along the sen- tence enforcement process. [less ▲]

We present a unified view of pulsations in both pre-ELM and ELM white dwarfs within the framework of state-of-the-art binary evolution calculations that take into account the combined effects of diffusion and rotational mixing. We find that rotational mixing is able to maintain against settling a sufficient amount of helium in the envelope in order to fuel pulsations through He II-He III ionization on the pre-ELM branch of the evolutionary track in the spectroscopic HR diagram. By the time such a low-mass white dwarf enters the ZZ Ceti instability strip on the cooling branch, settling has taken over rotational mixing and produced a pure H envelope. Such a star then pulsates again, but, this time, as a DA white dwarf of the ZZ Ceti type. [less ▲]

This chapter reports on the two PACITA summers schools, which were aimed at teaching TA as well as enhancing mutual-learning activities. The first summer school concentrated on the topic ‘Renewable Energy Systems- role and use of PTA’ and it was held in Liege in June 2012. The second summer school addressed the topic of ‘Ageing and Technology’, and was held in Cork in June 2014. We describe the rationale and format of the summer school in order to present a comprehensive account of how it was introduced TA, both its rational and its methods, to a new audience. We argue that as the responsible innovation agenda continues to gain traction among policy makers, societal actors and academics, education initiatives such as TA summer schools can have an important role to play in the future of the governance of science, technology and innovation.
