This paper gives a critical overview of the rules of private international law to be found in the Code of Private International Law adopted in Belgium in 2004 in relation to cross-border commercial contracts. These rules apply in a marginal number of cases due to the priority enjoyed by European rules (such as those found in the Brussels I Regulation and the Rome I Regulation). Nonetheless it is important to analyze whether these rules are well drafted. The analysis reveals serious shortcomings mainly in relation to rules of jurisdiction. On the one hand, the rule pertaining the choice of court agreements gives courts an unnecessary margin of discretion to disregard the agreement of parties. On the other hand, the rule pertaining to the law applicable to agreements, is outdated and based on archaic method of identifying the applicable law. [less ▲]

X-ray microtomography is a powerful non-invasive visualisation technique which can be advantageously used to get a better understanding or dynamic adsorption processes. In the present work, this technique is shown to be able to detect wall effects during the dynamic adsorption of methyl iodide on activated carbon filters. The analysis of transversal cross-sections along the filter height clearly shows the existence of radial concentration profiles. These radial adsorption profiles are directly linked to velocity profiles due to a higher permeability at the wall. Obtaining Such in situ information constitutes a real progress in order to validate simulation models allowing predicting reliable breakthrough times. (C) 2008 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

This paper is presenting the results of the interviews of PE teachers and principals involved in an experiment consisting in doubling the number of weekly PE lessons in 10 Wallonian primary schools. Authors used an original approach to “reconstruct” an imaginary interview combining the answers of all subjects. The paper emphasized that practitioners’ views should be heeded when implementing a new programme. The practitioners pointed out that they need mainly to be encouraged when they have good ideas. If specific human resources and facilities’ availability were identified as determining factors, it seems that the main condition of success lies on the real wish of a teaching staff to put the physical activity in the centre of the educational mission of its school. It implies the leadership of the principal, the involvement of the PE teachers and the collaboration of each classroom teacher. A national programme imposed will not have a greater effectiveness than shared positive experiences intelligently highlighted by a marketing action if results of action research would bring objective support helping to convince those who prefer the security of the tradition to any calling into question and additional work.

Background Mercury is known to bioaccumulate and to magnify in marine mammals, which is a cause of great concern in terms of their general health. In particular, the immune system is known to be susceptible to long-term mercury exposure. The aims of the present study were (1) to determine the mercury level in the blood of free-ranging harbour seals from the North Sea and (2) to examine the link between methylmercury in vitro exposure and immune functions using seal and human mitogen-stimulated peripheral blood mononuclear cells (T-lymphocytes). Methods Total mercury was analysed in the blood of 22 harbour seals. Peripheral blood mononuclear cells were isolated from seals (n = 11) and from humans (n = 9). Stimulated lymphocytes of both species were exposed to functional tests (proliferation, metabolic activity, radioactive precursor incorporation) under increasing doses of methylmercury (0.1 to 10 µM). The expression of cytokines (IL-2; IL-4 and TGF-beta was investigated in seal lymphocytes by RT-PCR and by real time quantitative PCR (n = 5) at methylmercury concentrations of 0.2 and 1 µM. Finally, proteomics analysis was attempted on human lymphocytes (cytoplasmic fraction) in order to identify biochemical pathways of toxicity at concentration of 1 µM (n = 3). Results The results showed that the number of seal lymphocytes, viability, metabolic activity, DNA and RNA synthesis were reduced in vitro, suggesting deleterious effects of methylmercury concentrations naturally encountered in free-ranging seals. Similar results were found for human lymphocytes. Functional tests showed that a 1 µM concentration was the critical concentration above which lymphocyte activity, proliferation and survival were compromised. The expression of IL-2 and TGF-beta mRNA was weaker in exposed seal lymphocytes compared to control cells (0.2 and 1 µM). Proteomics showed some variation in the protein expression profile (e.g. vimentin). [less ▲]

RhoA plays a significant role in actin stress fibers formation. However, silencing RhoA alone or RhoA and RhoC did not completely suppress the stress fibers suggesting a residual "Rho-like" activity. RhoB, the third member of the Rho subclass, is a shortlived protein barely detectable in basal conditions. In various cell types, the silencing of RhoA induced a strong up-regulation of both total and active RhoB protein levels that were rescued by re-expressing RhoA and related to an enhanced half-life of the protein. The RhoA-dependent regulation of RhoB does not depend on the activity of RhoA but is mediated by its GDP-bound form. The stabilization of RhoB was not dependent on isoprenoid biosynthesis, Rho kinase, extracellular signal-regulated kinase, p38 mitogen-activated kinase, or phosphatidylinositol 3'-OH kinase pathways but required RhoGDIalpha. The forced expression of RhoGDIalpha increased RhoB half-life, whereas its knock-down antagonized the induction of RhoB following RhoA silencing. Moreover, a RhoA mutant (RhoAR68E) unable to bind RhoGDIalpha was significantly less efficient as compared with wild-type RhoA in reversing RhoB up-regulation upon RhoA silencing. These results suggest that, in basal conditions, RhoGDIalpha is rate-limiting and the suppression of RhoA makes it available to stabilize RhoB. Our results highlight RhoGDIalpha-dependent cross-talks that regulate the stability of RhoGTPases. [less ▲]
