Work environments have been encountering tremendous changes since the early 1990s. The enlargement of flexibility practices has raised concerns about well-being at work but also about safety. These two research areas, i.e. safety and well-being at work, have a strong tradition of diagnosis and research but there are few examples in the literature that attempt to link the two areas. Our goal in this study was to analyze the impact of both work variables and safety appraisal on well-being within a context of organizational changes. We used questionnaires on 4297 workers from a large company in the energy sector that has encountered big organizational changes these last years. Job control dimensions, safety appraisal, eustress and distress were measured using existing questionnaires. The results give some evidence for an additive explanation of eustress when adding safety appraisal in the hierarchical regression analysis. The additive effect of safety appraisal on distress was also significant but not enough strong to be considered seriously. A path analysis has shown that the effect of management safety climate on distress was rather an indirect effect through the job control dimensions. [less ▲]

The prevalence of chronic renal insufficiency, the cost related to its presence and the associated high cardiovascular risk are increasing. Early detection is needed, with, in parallel, identification of all frequently associated cardiovascular risk factors. The general practitioner here plays a major role. Sometimes, a first reference to the nephrologist is requested, for instance in the presence of a nephritic or nephrotic syndrome, of an alteration of glomerular filtration rate without any clear explanation , or of a rather advanced renal dysfunction (a GFR < 60 ml/min in people < 65 years or < 45 ml/min in the others). This paper is concerned with mild and moderate forms of kidney disease (stages 1 to 3). In case of progression, a closer collaboration must exist between the general practitioner, the nephrologist and a trained dietician to slow down this progression, limit its consequences and delay as long as possible the initiation of kidney function supplying techniques.

In the global framework of climate change, hydraulic structures rehabilitation is an up-to-date subject requiring appropriate design and impact studies. In this scope, upgrading the release facilities of dams is an important point since any badly controlled rise of water level in the reservoir leads usually to both up and downstream consequences, often irreversible. Suitable numerical models, coupled with contemporary computational possibilities, allow today engineers to forecast the complex situations induced on real structures by extreme events with increasing representativeness and accuracy. In this field, WOLF software, a process oriented free surface flows computation package completely set up by the HACH team, has proved its efficiency and reliability for years through numerous theoretical, experimental as well as on real structures applications. In this paper, the rehabilitation study of the Nisramont dam (Belgium) is presented. Located on the Ourthe River, a few kilometers upstream of the town of La Roche, this 21-meter high dam came into service in 1958 and was, in a first time, dedicated to be used as a cofferdam during the construction of a downstream larger reservoir of 250 hm³. But this second dam was never built and Nisramont became a definitive reservoir of 3 hm³ assuming the drinking water supply of a large part of the population of the south of Belgium and producing hydro-electricity. Due to its temporary primary tasks, the stilling basin downstream of the three 12.5 m large notches of the crest spillway has been designed for a short time use. Similarly, the 3 bottom outlets have never been equipped with valves and are thus unusable for the reservoir management. In order to secure the structure and to make it comply with its definitive working objectives, while taking into account climate change observations, the Ministère wallon de l’Equipement et des Transport (MET) - Direction des barrages de l’Est (D. 241) entrusted the HACH with evaluating up to date critical flood discharges and with designing a system in accord with these new values for the rehabilitation of the bottom outlets and the evacuation of the floods to the downstream river. This study has mainly been carried out using software of the WOLF package, successively applied to model really observed extreme events on the structure, to define new peak flow discharge and to design the stilling basin.

BACKGROUND: the objective of this study was twofold:1) Describe the use of antipsychotic treatments in ambulatory patients suffering from schizophrenia in Belgium.2) Evaluate to which extend antipsychotic treatment prescribing patterns are in accordance with published treatment guidelines. METHOD: A cross-sectional survey was carried out in 16 Belgian hospitals selected from a sample of 67 hospitals. The hospitals were equally distributed between the north and south part of the country and were representative of Belgian practice. During 2 months, participating psychiatrists were asked to record the medication use as well as demographic parameters of all consecutive ambulatory patients seen at their consultation or attending a day-hospital. Data concerning 1000 ambulatory patients with schizophrenia or schizoaffective disorder were collected. RESULTS: In Belgium, the use of atypical antipsychotics is frequent (69%) in ambulatory patients with schizophrenia. In the overall sample, 73% receive only one antipsychotic drug. The majority of patients are treated with drugs of only one antipsychotic drug group, either first- typical (29.8%) or second-generation, atypical antipsychotics (53.2%). 15.8% of patients combine different types of antipsychotics. Antipsychotic dosing is adequate for the majority of patients but about one fifth receives a higher than recommended dose as per package inserts. Polypharmacy remains within reasonable limits. The use of concomitant medication varies according the antipsychotic treatment: patients who take second-generation antipsychotics only, receive the least additional drugs. CONCLUSION: Atypical antipsychotics appear to be the first line treatment for schizophrenic psychosis. Psychiatrists working with ambulatory patients are well aware of treatment guidelines and follow them quite adequately. [less ▲]

A generic method for supervised classification of structured objects is presented. The approach induces a classifier by (i) deriving a surrogate dataset from a pre-classified dataset of structured objects, by segmenting them into pieces, (ii) learning a model relating pieces to object-classes, (iii) classifying structured objects by combining predictions made for their pieces. The segmentation allows to exploit local information and can be adapted to inject invariances into the resulting classifier. The framework is illustrated on practical sequence, time-series and image classification problems. [less ▲]

We are currently involved in a Franco-Thai program devolved to a multidisciplinary investigation of Muridae rodents (‘‘mice and rats''), their parasites and the pathogens that they may carry and/or transmit to human, with a better understanding of diseases emergence as an ultimate goal. In such a context, pathogens circulation in the wild is a complex but pivotal phenomenon which requires a continuum of scientific approaches to be accurately apprehended. In particular, a rigorously comparative study is mandatory in order to take into account the interactions between parasites, wild and domestic hosts (uncluding human) and their environment. This is the reason why we rely on both concepts and techniques from a wide range of disciplines including taxonomy, cytogenetics, phylogenetics, phylogeography, population genetics, ecology, geography as well as modeling. With the following objectives. Objective 1: To precisely identify and characterize the rodent species acting as reservoirs, and to document their ecology, geographic distribution as well as the genetic structure of their populations. To assess parasite and pathogen diversity in relation to their associated rodent hosts. To provide cophylogenies and co-phylogeographies in order to enlight the evolutionary relationships of hosts and parasites. Objective 2: To map and correlate the observed rodents distributions with their species-specific environmental landscapes in order to extrapolate their potential ‘‘real'' range and to anticipate their future distributions in relation to landscape modifications. Objective 3: Computing epidemiological databases. Crosschecking field data and GIS data. Definition and standardization of a risk-scale. Finalization of maps of risks and distributions. Atlas of Thai Muridae. Reference collection of Thai Muridae. Education and training of students. Following the listing of the objectives, we expose the first results of our studies and we sketch future projects. [less ▲]
