Congener-specific analyses of polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDDs), polychlorinated dibenzofurans (PCDFs) and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) were performed on twenty-eight non-pooled fast food samples collected in Belgium, Switzerland, Czech Republic, United States of America and Australia. PCDD/F and PCB concentrations for the four investigated types of meals were very low. PCDD/F values ranged from non-detected to 1.40 pg WHO-TEQ/g fat and from 0.79 to 2.08 pg WHO-TEQ/g fat for lower and upper bound, respectively. Major contributors to the PCDD/F TEQ were 1,2,3,4,7,8-HxCDD, 1,2,3,6,7,8-HxCDD, 2,3,7,8-TCDF and 2,3,4,7,8-PeCDF. The relative contribution of PCBs to the total TEQ was 68%. For adults, an average estimated intake was 6.7 pg WHO-TEQ/kg bw/month, including consumption of all types of analyzed meals, representing 9.5% of the PTMI. For child, a value of 14.5 pg WHO-TEQ/kg bw/month was obtained, representing 20.6% of the PTMI. (C) 2003 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved. [less ▲]

Wereport on the pilot study carried out before the start of the Elfe project (French longitudinal study from childhood). A total of 44 samples of mature human milk were collected at home 8 weeks after delivery. A total of 7 polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDDs), 10 polychlorinated dibenzofurans (PCDFs), 12 dioxin-like (DL) polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), and 6 non dioxin-like (NDL)-PCBs were measured. For total TEQ (PCDD/Fs and DL-PCBs), the geometric mean concentration was 17.81 pg TEQWHO05/g lipids. Relative PCDD, PCDF, and DL-PCB contributions to the arithmetic mean TEQWHO05 were 38%, 18%, and 44%, respectively. The use of TEFWHO05 instead of TEFWHO98 resulted in a 27% reduction of the total TEQ value. Although PCDD levels did not significantly change (less than 0.5% increase), PCDF and DL-PCB levels both decreased by 35% and 38%, respectively. Levels have been compared to data obtained during a previous non-reported national study conducted in 1998 (TEFWHO98) in French lactaria (n = 244). The mean of PCDD/Fs has decreased about 39.4% (18.8 pg TEQWHO98/g lipids in 1998 vs 11.4 pg TEQWHO98/g lipids in pilot study), respectively 41.5% for PCDDs (10.6 pg TEQWHO98/g lipids in 1998 vs 6.2 pg TEQWHO98/g lipids in pilot study) and 36.7% for PCDFs (7.9 pg TEQWHO98/g lipids in 1998 vs 5.0 pg TEQWHO98/g lipids in pilot study). For the sum of the 6 NDL-PCBs, the 2007 geometric mean concentration in milk was 176.3 ng/g lipids. The arithmetic mean lipid concentration in 2007 breast milk was 26.4 g/l (range from 6.0 to 46.7 g/l). A PCDD/F and DL-PCB daily intake was estimated to be 62.3 pg TEQWHO05/kg body weight per day (85.0 pg TEQWHO98/kg bodyweight per day) for a baby of 5 kg of bodyweight fed daily with 700 ml of maternal milk containing 25 g/l of lipids.

Predicting accurately and in real-time 3D body joint positions from a depth image is the cornerstone for many safety, biomedical, and entertainment applications. Despite the high quality of the depth images, the accuracy of existing human pose estimation methods from single depth images remains insufficient for some applications. In order to enhance the accuracy, we suggest to leverage a rough orientation estimation to dynamically select a 3D joint position prediction model specialized for this orientation. This orientation estimation can be obtained in real-time either from the image itself, or from any other clue like tracking. We demonstrate the merits of this general principle on a pose estimation method similar to the one used with Kinect cameras. Our results show that the accuracy is improved by up to 45.1 %, with respect to a method using the same model for all orientations. [less ▲]

Depuis les années 60, la fréquence de mutations organisationnelles de l'enseignement supérieur et universitaire en Belgique s'amplifie et adopte même un rythme frénétique ces dix dernières années. Les causes sont tour à tour l'évolution des professions et la volonté politique et/ou économique de restructuration. Deux niveaux de régulations pédagogiques sont amenés à s'articuler. D'une part, celui de l'enseignant acteur-réflexif de son enseignement et d'autre part, des injonctions externes qui réorganise le cadre général.

Context: Continuing medical education of general practicioners in French-speaking Belgium. Aims: Identifying key factors in the transfer of training in continuing medical education of general practicioners and developing a conceptual operational model that take these key factors into account. Methods: Quantitative longitudinal study. Questionnaires were submitted at the end of the workshops and 6 to 8 weeks later. The first questionnaire (key factors in the transfer of training) was filled out by 187 participants (answer rate: 97%). There were 81 valid answers in the second questionnaire (self-reported transfer of training). Results: Four key factors were identified: transfer intention, attitude towards transfer, self-efficacy and transfer schemes. Attitude towards transfer is the key factor with the greatest effect on transfer intention and the main indirect factor on transfer. Findings: An intial version of a conceptual operational model of the transfer of training in continuing medical education for general practicioners was developed. Attitude towards transfer is the key factor in continuing medical education of general practicionners that trainers can influence, especially the use of transfer schemes. [less ▲]

Normal aging is associated with a decrease in dopaminergic function and a reduced ability to form new motor memories with training. This study examined the link between both phenomena. We hypothesized that levodopa would (a) ameliorate aging-dependent deficits in motor memory formation, and (b) increase dopamine availability at the dopamine type 2-like (D2) receptor during training in task-relevant brain structures. The effects of training plus levodopa (100mg, plus 25mg carbidopa) on motor memory formation and striatal dopamine availability were measured with [(11)C]raclopride (RAC) positron emission tomography (PET). We found that levodopa did not alter RAC-binding potential at rest but it enhanced training effects on motor memory formation as well as dopamine release in the dorsal caudate nucleus. Motor memory formation during training correlated with the increase of dopamine release in the caudate nucleus. These results demonstrate that levodopa may ameliorate dopamine deficiencies in the elderly by replenishing dopaminergic presynaptic stores, actively engaged in phasic dopamine release during motor training.

Inflectional spelling abilities have been less extensively studied than lexical spelling abilities and the relationship between these two types of spelling abilities is poorly understood. In this study, we compared lexical and inflectional spelling abilities in 12-year-old children, by hypothesizing that attentional load may be particularly detrimental for sentence context-dependent inflectional spelling abilities, in contrast to sentence context-independent lexical spelling abilities. Ninety-five sixth graders had to write to dictation sentences containing orthographically inconsistent words as well as inflected words (plural nouns and verbs at the 3th person) in three different cognitive load conditions. In a medium load condition, a time constraint obliged the subjects to write the sentences as quickly as possible. In a high load condition, the participants had to write the sentences as quickly as possible while further carrying out calculation problems (additions). The minimal load condition corresponded to standard writing to dictation, with no time constraint or any secondary task. The number of spelling errors for orthographically inconsistent words (lexical spelling abilities) and inflected words (inflectional spelling abilities) was calculated for each condition. We observed that spelling performance for inconsistent words was not impacted by cognitive load. On the other hand, spelling performance for inflected words decreased significantly in the medium and high load conditions. These results suggest that inflectional spelling abilities are less proceduralized than lexical spelling abilities, and rely to a greater extent on cognitive control processes. [less ▲]
