Generalized Hölder-Zygmund spaces $\Lambda_{\sigma, N}^{\alpha}(\R^{d})$ were recently introduced and are based on a generalization of Besov spaces. Under some conditions, generalized Hölder-Zygmund and Besov spaces are equal. It has been proved that most properties of classical Hölder-Zygmund spaces are held for spaces $\Lambda^{\sigma,\alpha}(\R^{d})$, which constitute a particular case of spaces $\Lambda_{\sigma, N}^{\alpha}(\R^{d})$ with $N_{j}=2^{j}$. The goal of the present document is to prove that most of these properties are kept for $\Lambda_{\sigma, N}^{\alpha}(\R^{d})$ spaces. [less ▲]

EIT Raw Materials is a major European initiative supported by more than 120 core and associate partners from industry, research and academia. Among the core missions of this network is the establishment of a Raw Materials RM Academy to educate T-shaped professionals that will contribute to the development of a sustainable and resource efficient Europe. Every T-shaped professional should combine an in depth knowledge of his own discipline with a sound understanding of the challenges of the full raw materials value chain and with a mindset for innovation and entrepreneurship. The main objective of the RM Academy is to connect all T-shaped professionals to help create the circular economy steering wheel. Therefore, the RM Academy has the following missions: - Label and support educational programs. - Promote a permanent offer of cross-disciplinary programmes, workshops and courses. - Train T-shaped professionals into T-shaped entrepreneurs. - Promote lifelong learning initiatives. - Stimulate wider society learning initiatives aiming at raising social and political awareness. - Closely collaborate with industry - Enable a high degree of mobility of students and professionals [less ▲]

bovine mastitis. The aim of the present work was to follow in three herds and during the 3 years the clonality of S. aureus isolated from California Mastitis Test (CMT)-positive cows at the experimental station of Toukounous (Niger) by (i) comparing their pulsed field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) fingerprints, (ii) identifying their virulotypes by PCR amplification and (iii) assessing the production of capsule and the formation of biofilm. The 88 S. aureus isolates belonged to 14 different pulsotypes, 3 of them being predominant: A (30 %), D (27 %), B (15 %). A and B pulsotypes had the highest profile similarity coefficient (94 %), while others had similarity coefficients under 60 %. Seventy-five S. aureus isolates were further studied for their virulotypes, capsular antigens and biofilm production. Most surface factor-, leukocidin- and haemolysin-, but not the enterotoxin-encoding genes were detected in the majority (>75 %) of the isolates and were evenly distributed between the A, B and D pulsotype isolates. The majority of the 72 S. aureus positive with the cap5H or cap8H PCR produced the CP5 (82 %) or the CP8 (88 %) capsular antigen, respectively. Biofilm production by the 57 icaA-positive isolates was strong for 8 isolates, moderate for 31 isolates but weak for 18 isolates, implying that the icaA gene may not be expressed in vitro by one third of the positive isolates. Similar to other studies, those results confirm that a restricted number of S. aureus clones circulate within the three herds at Toukounous and that their specific virulence-associated properties must still be further studied [less ▲]

Previous studies have shown that implementing real occupancy and energy-related behaviour parameters in the regulatory calculation method can help close the gap between theoretical and real energy consumption. This study takes one more step by integrating financial incentives and occupants strategic planning in the energy and economic performance assessment of progressive renovation scenarios, focusing on two urban single-family houses, chosen for their representation of the Belgian urban residential stock.

The Reno2020 project engaged all construction actors, from stock owners to local material producers, to imagine efficient refurbishment solutions of dwellings in the suburbs of Liege (BE), according to their typology. This industrialised solution has been developed to replace the street façades of old, often insalubrious urban modest “blue-collar” houses. Among its strengths: set-up rapidity, high energy performance without loss of private or public space, locally-sourced materials and urban-scale retrofit potential. [less ▲]

Introduction Improving patient flow from emergency department (ED) to in-hospital bed admission has become an everyday challenge. Implementation of an ED bed manager (BM) who monitors hospital beds availability daily has been advocated to reduce boarding time for admitted patient. However, little is known on the actual burden and pitfalls of ED bed coordination. Indeed, overcrowded hospitals often lead to inappropriate transfer from ED to less adapted hospital unit or unit with lower level of care. We design the present study to evaluate the occurrence of such step-down units transfer. Methods This prospective study was conducted in a tertiary care academic hospital accounting for 622 licensed beds and an ED census of 45000/year. In 2014, a BM was implemented as a result of a quality improvement program. Focus was made solely on facilitating and improving patient movements form ED to the hospital wards. The investigators extracted data from a 20-days random observation period in February and March 2015, or a total of 231 patients administered by the BM. Results During this period, mean ED census was 131 (±12) patients /day, of which mean hospital admission rate was 20,6 %. BM administered 12 (±3) of these patients daily. Most of these patients were transferred to an appropriate unit (47.6 %) or a short stay unit (32.1%), while 17.7 % were referred to under adapted units and 2.6 % to step down units. Patients’ average length of stay (LOS) was 32 hours. LOS for patients immediately admitted in the ED short stay unit (n=74) was 26.5 (±22) hours, while it took 35.8 (±26) hours to reach an appropriate unit (n=110) and 35.6 (±27.4) to reach a less-appropriate unit (n=41). Interestingly, patients transferred to a non-appropriate unit (n=6) stayed 29.5 (±15.7) hours in the ED. Communications means used by the BM was face-to-face talk almost half of the cases (n=93) and phone calls for the other half (n=115). Discussion and conclusion These results emphasize the complexity of ED flow coordination. Whether or not such coordination is effective on ED overcrowding or patients’ LOS, this preliminary study identifies the frequent use of short stay and under-adapted units instead of optimal bed location. Besides, further research should clarify the impact of these hospitalisations’ pathways on the quality of care. Finally, these observations indicate the urgent need for early determination of patients who could actually be safely transferred to such units. [less ▲]
