This paper outlines the first forest inventory recently carried out in the Southern part of Belgium (Wallonia) where the forests cover about 530.000 hectares (or 33 % of the regional area). The main objective was to estimate the standing volume of timber in the present conditions and to give, quickly, information dealing with the areas occupied according to different classifications. The inventory system used is based on temporary systematic sampling with an intensity of one plot per 50 hectares. [less ▲]

The arrival of the European and National laws* concerning the official labelling of building materials (CE marking) and the respect of concentration values for some compounds regulations in public buildings as for instance schools, the emergence of the Environmental Assessments of buildings (Breeam, HQE,…) beside the energy performance, as well as the awareness increase of the impact of indoor air quality on the wellness and health (ie ENVIE and Healthvent projects [1]) lead inevitably to the development of new sensing technologies related to the IAQ evaluation. Among the numerous existing measurement devices, electrochemical cells, NDIR and PID ones are the most encountered sensors on the market. The major uses are real time monitoring (CO2) and “friendly” handheld devices. Other applications are also studied in several research labs. Few years ago, the ULg research team investigated the interest of MOS chemical sensors arrays for IAQ evaluation. This presentation aims to review some of the results of those projects. A first is the fast and simple diagnosis of moulds on building materials. The identification of contaminated materials among uncontaminated ones was successful [2-4]. However, the low concentration of the MVOC markers compounds (below 10 µg/m³) and the complexity of the background (material emissions, and VOC content of the indoor air) curbed the use of MOS sensors. Specific preconcentrations have to be developed to improve the diagnosis. Nowadays, with the emergence of new sensing materials and new measurement principles (eg IMS-ion mobility spectrometry [5]), perspectives are again opened. Another project (HEMICPD, Belgian project “Horizontal evaluation method for the implementation of the Construction Products Directive”-Emissions to indoor air [6]) concerned the marking of building materials and one of the tasks was to test the sensors array principle to monitor the compounds emanation from different building material, during 28 days, in emission test chambers. Another goal was to investigate a classification of the materials including their odour level. The results on the use of sensors to evaluate the efficiency of “masking” products pulverised in wallpapers and to manage their use are also explained. [less ▲]

Objectives : to determine the value of pharmacological treatment of type B aortic dissection (B AD) in face of new forms of treatment. Design : this is a retrospective study of the period from 1990 to 2000. Files of 81 patients have been reviewed and completed by questionnaires. Results Two B AD died after admission without any treatment, 10 were operated on with 7 discharged alive (group 1) 69 received hypotensive agents and beta-blockers, 65 were discharged alive (group 11). Late mortality of the group I is 3/7, not related with B AD. Late mortality after mean follow-up of 56.8 months is 27/65 with 4/27 related to B AD (4 ruptures, 2 operated on). Non fatal secondary surgery amounts 5 in 4 patients. Total B AD aortic events comprise 8/65 patients. Type A AD were operated on successfully (8 : 4 before B AD, and 4 after B AD). Degenerative abdominal aortic aneurysms were present, operated (9) or not (3), in the history of patients and 3 more appear subsequently. At 10 years, actuarial survival is 40% +/- 18. Conclusion : in non-complicated cases of B AD, medical treatment is a reasonable choice, provided that a strict follow-up of the thoracic abdominal aorta is performed. [less ▲]

Febrile neutropenia requires adequate antibiotic treatment. A subgroup of patients are only at low risk for complications and could be treated at home/as outpatients (OHPAT) after a short initial admission for work up. This position paper by a Belgian panel of experts presents criteria defining low-risk in febrile neutropenia, gives an overview of the existing experience and examines the present obstacles to a more widespread use of OHPAT in this country.

Despite a rapid growth and an ongoing need for outplacement services, little is yet known about the perceived adequacy and benefits of these services for redundant employees using them. We surveyed 360 Belgian redundant employees (i.e., clients) using outplacement services provided by a public employment agency. The results indicate that an outplacement experience perceived as adequate for clients fosters their overall impressions of justice towards the dismissing organization; this leads in turn to benefits for them: reduction of negative emotions, enhancement of their perceived well-being, future perspectives, and job-seeking activities - confirming the mediating role of overall justice.

ABSTRACT We examined the relationships between perceived outplacement adequacy, retrospective justice and outplacement benefits for redundant employees using outplacement services. Based on an outplacement experience perceived as adequate, victims formed retrospective justice perceptions about their former organization that in turn, impacted their negative emotions, well-being, future perspectives and job search. PRESS PARAGRAPH The increasing prevalence of organizational downsizing has been matched by growth in the provision of outplacement services over the last decade. Despite this rapid growth and ongoing need for outplacement services, little is yet known about the perceived adequacy and the benefits of these services for redundant employees using them. Our results indicated that an outplacement experience perceived as adequate for redundant employees retrospectively fosters their impressions of justice about the dismissing organization; this leads in turn to satisfactory benefits for them: reduction of negative emotions, enhancement of their perceived well-being, future perspectives, and job-seeking activities.

The present study carries out output-only modal analysis using two blind source separation (BSS) techniques, namely independent component analysis and second-order blind identification. The concept of virtual source is exploited and renders the application of these BSS techniques possible. The proposed modal analysis method is illustrated using numerical and experimental examples.

In our technological world, Science is everywhere and to participate to the public debates, citizens will need some basic scientific notions. Raising awareness of the public in Science is thus always worthwhile, even though only a small fraction of the audience will envisage a career in the field. Bringing science to the layman should even be a duty for scientists: we should not forget that we are paid by taxpayers, and are part of a public service; and besides, people tend to reject things that they do not understand - to get support, scientists need to enter the public arena and confront the crowd. Relying on attractive images and a timeless fascination, astronomy is particularly suited to do that. But what should a willing astronomer do to share (his/her) knowledge? There is certainly no definitive answer for that, but a few hints can still be given. Based on personal experience, this talk will present a few tips and things to avoid in three cases: animations (for kids and grown-ups), writing, and talking. [less ▲]

The research presented has been the result of the necessity of the growing performances of apiaries in Romania on the basis of increasing the level of fructification of the used resources. The most important activities that may be subject to the outsourcing process are: honey extraction, transport, the primary processing of apiarian products, packaging, bottling and labeling, marketing of bee products, financial-accounting records, the analysis the technical-economic projection, juridical assistance, promotion of apiarian products and services. The fructification of the mobility of certain activities in apiaries can be achieved by the following steps: the quantification of the level of usage of the available resources in the exploitation, the identification of alternatives to their own activities and the comparison of costs of alternatives with those of their own activities.

Contrary to what was formerly believed, VV Scl is not an eclipsing star but an Alpha CVn type variable with period P = 5.0976 +/- 0.0001 d. The range of the luminosity variation is remarkably large for an Ap star, especially in B of Johnson's system, and in b and mostly in v of Stromgren's one. A secondary minimum appears near the maximum in B, b, an v. The main minima are in phase in all colors. [less ▲]
