Introduction. Today, it is considered that, in children with serious illnesses such as cancer, physical activity during treatment has beneficial effects (physical and mental well-being, self-confidence and self-esteem ...)(INSERM, 2008). However, it is important to notice that physical activity has to be appropriate according to the circumstances (Herbinet, 2002). If some programs begin now to be offered in some hospitals, a lack of resources suitable for children and adolescents appears to be the norm. This study aimed to identify needs and resources for the implementation of a project like this in the department of Hematology Oncology at a hospital in the region of Liege (Wallonia, Belgium). Methods. In this perspective, we interviewed various members of the medical and paramedical staff (n = 20), young patients (n = 8) and their parents (n = 5). This triangulation process aimed to guarantee the validity of the data. The semi-structured interviews were focused on the representations of these subjects about physical activity at the hospital in young people with cancer (definition of physical activity, opportunities and habits of the young patients to exercise, benefits and risks of being active) as well as about their opinions about the characteristics of the actions to implement (type of activities, recommendations, needed resources and conditions). Respecting the principles of the qualitative research, a content analysis of the answers has been conducted. Results. Most of the subjects supported this type of project. Five categories of activities have been identified (adapted ball games, soft gymnastics, group fitness classes, relaxation activities, outdoor activities). A daily medical monitoring has been emphasized while precautionary measures have been listed, as well as the resources of the human, material, organizational and financial aspects that would be needed.

This study compares, in five species of Pomacentridae (Chromis viridis, Dascyllus flavicaudus, Chrysiptera glauca, Pomacentrus pavo, Plectroglyphidodon lacrymatus), the changes in cephalic skeletal structures between settling larvae and adults living on the reef. Variations were studied in the suspensorium, the opercle, the mandible, the premaxillary bone and the teeth. Comparisons of the feeding apparatus enabled two different types of feeding to be distinguished in adults: suction feeding and grazer sucking. Adult C. viridis and D. flavicaudus have a high suspensorium, a well-rounded mouth during jaw opening and caniniform teeth. These two species can be considered to be suction feeders. On the other hand, adult C glauca, P pavo and P lacrymatus have less developed suspensoria, opercles and ascending process of the premaxillar, and present incisiform teeth. These three species appear to be grazer suckers. However, the larvae of all five species present an unimodal way of feeding, defined as ram-suction. Differences between larvae and adults appear clearly to be related to their ecology. The increasing variation presented in feeding apparatus during the settlement phase could be linked to diversification leading to occupancy of different ecological niches. [less ▲]

In this study, the potential reduction of odor of anaerobic digestion has been evaluated in three commercial facilities located in Belgium, Luxembourg and Germany. Odor concentrations were measured by olfactometric analyses in two different situations: at normal conditions and after the stirring the odor source. Parallel to these measures, representative samples were taken for digested and untreated manure and other co-substrates present in the facilities. Volatile solids, total solids, total suspended solids, volatile suspended solids, soluble chemical oxygen demand, ammonia nitrogen, total kjeldhal nitrogen, volatile fatty acids, and pH were determined in laboratory. The performance of anaerobic digestion in terms of VFA concentration reduction achieved values of 77-96%. Odor concentration was reduced by anaerobic digestion in the two studied scenarios: at normal conditions and after the stirring the odor source. No significant effect of anaerobic digestion on chemical analyses was observed, except for an increase in the ammonia nitrogen content. Significant correlations were found between the logarithm of odor concentration and different odor compounds (VFA, acetic, butyric, isobutyric, isovaleric). Correlations between odor concentration, VFA and other parameters (VS, VSS and pH) were also obtained. These results confirm that anaerobic digestion may reduce odor annoyance potential and VFA concentrations. In addition, odor concentration seems to be related with other chemical parameters, therefore more research is needed to obtain further conclusions. [less ▲]

The recent development of medium-speed monohull passenger ferries has shown their importance for certain routes. The aim of the intensive studies performed in the recent years is to fulfil the pending technical and environmental issues concerning the HSC crafts. They operate at the Froude number range of 0.55 to 0.80 which is beyond the last hump of the wave resistance curve. In fact, they need a high power to maintain their operation speeds. The present project is to find the best design based on the layout of the passenger arrangement and the hull form configurations. The layout includes the seat arrangement and the distribution of passengers at the main and upper decks. Due to the lack of design data base of those kinds of semi-planning ships, a parent ship of 250 passengers is considered in this study. During the design process, the rules and mandatory issues are taken into account. The results of the design parameters and general layout of a series of parent ships are presented in this paper. The results will be applied in a future parametric study, particularly to find the best layout and hull form with the minimum engine power. Keywords: Ship design, general arrangement, engine power, passenger vessel [less ▲]
