Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) is a common inherited disease characterised by the progressive development of multiple and bilateral cysts in kidneys and other organs. Most patients with ADPKD will develop, sooner or later, end-stage renal disease (ESRD). The morbidity and mortality associated with ESRD prompt physicians to identify early ADPKD patients considered as «rapid progressors», who have the greatest risk to rapidly develop ESRD. The rate of progression can be assessed by clinical - especially with the «predicting renal outcome in polycystic kidney disease score» (PROPKD-Score) -, biological (a decline of the glomerular filtration rate (GFR) of 4,4 - 5,9 ml/min/year and/or the doubling of serum creatinine within a 36-month period), or radiological criteria (total kidney volume (TKV) adjusted for the size > 600 cc/m and/or TKV annual growth rate > 5 %). Nowadays, there is no curative treatment for ADPKD. However, vasopressin-2 receptor antagonists, such as tolvaptan, appear to slow down the growth of renal cysts and the slope of GFR decline. The current management of ADPKD patients is mostly based on correcting the risk factors for progression, i.e. encouraging (over)-hydration, normalizing blood pressure, stimulating smoking cessation.

Niniejszy artykuł stawia sobie dwa cele. Pierwszym jest porównanie semiotyki tekstu Algirdasa Juliena Greimasa i Louisa Marina z semiotyką praktyk Jacques’a Fontanille’a. Prace Michela de Certeau na temat praktyk odbioru i użycia pozwolą wyjaśnić relację między pojęciem wypowiadania wypowiedzianego (énonciation énoncée) w paradygmacie tekstu i wypowiadania w akcie (énonciation en acte) w paradygmacie praktyk. Drugim celem jest problematyzacja pojęcia wypowiadania w ramach języka wizualnego. W oparciu o teorie i analizy Louisa Marina (Opacité en peinture – Nieprzejrzystość w malarstwie) ukazana zostanie użyteczność pojęcia wypowiadania wypowiedzianego w studiach nad obrazami i podjęta zostanie próba przetestowania znaczenia, które wypowiadaniu nadaje de Certeau (Wynaleźć codzienność 1. Sztuki działania) w ramach odbioru i interpretacji obrazów. [less ▲]

From the Sahel to the coast, West Africa is experiencing a variety of climate change impacts, including sea level rise, soil salinization, floods, drought, and desertification, while simultaneously suffering from other forms of environmental degradation. Together, these environmental changes are significantly influencing migration patterns in and out of West Africa. This paper seeks to analyze vulnerability and resilience to environmental changes as they affect and are affected by mobility patterns in the region. We assert that the impact of environmental changes cannot be isolated from other political, social, economic, and demographic pressures that together drive human mobility. In a region where natural resources form the foundation of livelihoods and food security (fishing and agriculture), the relationship between environmental changes and socioeconomic vulnerabilities is of particular concern. This paper therefore draws from four distinct case studies to grasp the variegated and cumulative vulnerability and resilience among local populations as they relate to internal and intraregional migration.

Sea ice temperature affects the sea ice growth rate, heat content, permeability and habitability for ice algae. Large-scale simulations with NEMO-LIM suggest large ice temperature contrasts between the Arctic and the Antarctic sea ice. First, Antarctic sea ice proves generally warmer than in the Arctic, in particular during winter, where differences reach up to ∼10◦C. Second, the seasonality of temperature is different among the two hemispheres: Antarctic ice temperatures are 2-3◦C higher in spring than they are in fall, whereas the opposite is true in the Arctic. These two key differences are supported by the available ice core and mass balance buoys temperature observations, and can be attributed to differences in air temperature and snow depth. As a result, the ice is found to be habitable and permeable over much larger areas and much earlier in late spring in the Antarctic as compared with the Arctic, which consequences on biogeochemical exchanges in the sea ice zone remain to be evaluated.

En s’appuyant sur quelques expériences européennes et notamment celle de l’Université de Liège, pionnière en matière d’obligation de formation pour les encadrants du supérieur en Belgique, ce chapitre tente d’éclairer les défis majeurs qui attendent les enseignants ou conseillers pédagogiques au détour de leur conception d’un programme de formation pour enseignants. Il aborde tout d’abord l’intérêt d’étudier les besoins ou en tout cas de définir un cap institutionnel clair et partagé en matière de formation des enseignants en interne. Il propose quelques réflexions quant au choix du public-cible de ces formations, de leurs contenus et méthodes, de leur durée et de leurs animateurs. Il aborde ensuite les questions des incitants à la participation des enseignants et de l’impact de ces formations avant d’ouvrir sur quelques pistes de discussion. [less ▲]
