The recast of the European Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) requires all new buildings to be “nearly zero energy’ buildings (nZEB) by 2020, including existing buildings undergoing major renovations. Belgium was even first to set a definition for a ‘net zero energy house’ (NZEB) in 2009. The revised Energy Performance in Buildings Directive calls governments to meet the nearly zero energy targets by 2020. Governments must adopt and publish regulations and procedures for the other requirements mainly the cost optimal calculation by July 2012. There are many elements of the recast Directive that pertain to new buildings. Unfortunately, the recast does not set targets for improving existing buildings and non-legislative measures will be needed to address how to achieve a greater share of renovation. Therefore, this paper aims to identify the share of the newly constructed buildings by 2020 in Belgium. The objective is to put the nearly zero energy targets in a wider perspective in relation to the existing building stock. The paper investigates some future scenarios for the national buildings stock growth rate, coupled with demographic growth by 2050. The study’s final results indicate that newly constructed building will be less than 7% by 2020 and less than 15% by 2050 in Belgium. Thus by not addressing the potential for energy renovations in the building sector the EPBD is avoiding the elephant. [less ▲]

L'argument est séduisant d'acquérir un nouveau véhicule, plus propre en émission de CO2, mais il faut aussi se débarrasser de son ancien. Attention au bilan CO2 total de l'opération ! [...] De plus en plus d'entreprises s'emparent des problématiques environnementales pour vanter leurs produits "plus écologiques". Il faut bien avouer que, suite au film d'Al Gore sur le réchauffement climatique et aux interventions très médiatisées de Nicolas Hulot sur l'urgence écologique, le sujet est très à la mode dans notre pays. D'autant plus qu'au cours des trois dernières années de divers constructeurs automobiles devenues très "vertes" nous incitent à remplacer notre ancien véhicule "polluant" par un nouveau, plus économe en carburant et donc plus propre également en émissions de CO2. Certes l'argument est séduisant. Il faut cependant prendre garde de ne pas oublier que la production, le transport, le marketing et le démantèlement d'un nouveau véhicule émettent aussi beaucoup de CO2 et doivent donc être pris en compte dans le "bilan CO2" total de l'opération.

A number of studies have reported abnormalities of neurohypophyseal secretions in major depressive disorder. The purpose of the present study was to test the influence of apomorphine and clonidine injections on plasma vasopressin (AVP)-neurophysins and oxytocin(OT)-neurophysins levels, as direct index of posterior pituitary activation in major depression. Apomorphine and clonidine tests were carried out in 25 medication-free depressive patients and 25 age and gender-matched healthy controls. Blood for neurophysins analysis was drawn by venipuncture at t0, t+20, t+40, t+60 and t+120. Baseline AVP-neurophysins concentrations were significantly tower in depressives (0.12 +/- 0.14 ng/ml) than in healthy subjects (0.24 +/- 2.15 ng/ml) (p < 0.04). The response to apomorphine test revealed a significant reduced response at 20 (p=0.01), 40 (p=0.007) and 60 (p=0.02) and 120 (p=0.02) min. Following clonidine test, post hoc tests also revealed a significant decrease at 0 (p=0.04), 20 (p=0.01), 40 (p=0.007) and 60 (p=0.02) and 120 (p=0.006) min. Concerning OT-neurophysins, no significant differences were found between depressed and controls in response to clonidine or apomorphine injections. Following clonidine and apomorphine, major depressives exhibited a significantly lower peak GH response than controls. The study supports partially the hypothesis of a reduced vasopressinergic activity in depression. Moreover, we did not find any influence of acute apomorphine or clonidine injections on vasopressin-neurophysin or oxytocin-neurophysin in depressive patients. (c) 2005 Elsevier Ltd.

Awake craniotomy has become an increasingly frequent procedure. In this paper, the principles of its anaesthetic management are reviewed. The means allowing achievement of anaesthetic objectives are described, with emphasis on points that determine success of the procedure. A careful and adequate selection and preparation of patients are mandatory, and the intervening team must be a skilled team. Choosing an awake technique or general anaesthesia depends on several factors, including the risk of obstructive apnoea, seizures, nausea and vomiting, patient's ability to cooperate, and localization of lesions. The main challenge of intraoperative anaesthetic management relies on the ability of rapidly adjusting the level of sedation and analgesia according to the sequence of surgical events, while ensuring haemodynamic stability, adequate ventilation, and minimal interference with eventual eletrophysiological recordings. Throughout the procedure, complications must be anticipated and managed according to predefined guidelines. More prospective randomized clinical trials are still needed to improve safety and efficacy of awake craniotomies, as well as to validate this technique in comparison with more conventional anaesthetic management.

For a simple shear test, the finite element (FE) local frame, that stays orthogonal, does not follow the anisotropic material frame. To study this effect, FE simulations have been compared with experimental results (optical and texture measurements) and it was shown that it is necessary to take into account the effect of texture updating for local axes rotation.
