Throwing a glance on the status quo in schools of different countries in Western and Northern Europe shows that the requirement of inclusive physical education (PE) is implemented different¬ly: Italy, for instance, leads the way with an almost complete inclusion of children into mainstream education including physical education (Magnanini & Espinosa, 2015), in Norway children have the right to follow mainstream education and one talks about “adjusted” education for pupils with special needs (Dalen 2006; Hyde, Ohna & Hjulstad, 2006), Germany is only slowly breaking up with its traditional system of segregating pupils with special needs (Hausotter & Pluhar, 2004). But what are those differences based on? How did inclusive physi¬¬cal education (PE) historically grow in England, Germany, Italy and Norway, and can trans¬national developments be identified? In all three chosen countries different school systems which are representative for other Northern and Western European countries exist. Aim of this study is to compare them, analyze their historical development and find out whether and in how far those differences in the school system and curricula development prejudged chances for inclusive PE and thereby led to diverse nowadays’ situations. As a result, it is confirmed that the educational policy towards inclusion in schools which was internationally determined to apply in different United Nation member states, finally met on the national level in Northern and Western Europe different conditions and social attitudes. This again led to the implementation of specific national inclusive and/or exclusive structures of PE in schools, which finally, despite the geographical proximity, deviate quite strongly, from each other, not only in terms of current content and policy but also in terms of historical development.

Estrogenic chemicals are widespread environmental contaminants associated with diverse health and ecological effects. During early vertebrate development, estrogen receptor signaling is critical for many different physiologic responses, including nervous system function. Recently, host-associated microbiota have been shown to influence neurodevelopment. Here, we hypothesized that microbiota may biotransform exogenous 17-βestradiol (E2) and modify E2 effects on swimming behavior. Colonized zebrafish were continuously exposed to non-teratogenic E2 concentrations from 1 to 10 days post-fertilization (dpf). Changes in microbial composition and predicted metagenomic function were evaluated. Locomotor activity was assessed in colonized and axenic (microbe-free) zebrafish exposed to E2 using a standard light/dark behavioral assay. Zebrafish tissue was collected for chemistry analyses. While E2 exposure did not alter microbial composition or putative function, colonized E2-exposed larvae showed reduced locomotor activity in the light, in contrast to axenic E2-exposed larvae, which exhibited normal behavior. Measured E2 concentrations were significantly higher in axenic relative to colonized zebrafish. Integrated peak area for putative sulfonated and glucuronidated E2 metabolites showed a similar trend. These data demonstrate that E2 locomotor effects in the light phase are dependent on the presence of microbiota and suggest that microbiota influence chemical E2 toxicokinetics. More broadly, this work supports the concept that microbial colonization status may influence chemical toxicity. [less ▲]

This article hows that, during the 1910s, Weber establishes the cemetery as an indicator of cultural and societal health, capable of staging a process of healing that culminates in a liberating oblivion and consoling poetic reality. It also becomes a powerful tool to accentuate the absence of the graves of those who perished outside of the parameters that safeguard human dignity and is fundamental to Weber’s embedded critical political commentary.

Overall, reforms and changes in almost all sectors of education were launched over the past six months. In early childhood education, the introduction of the mini crèches made a contribution to a comprehensive implementation of early childhood education and care across Luxembourg, assuring at the same a first contact for the youngest with the multilingual education programme. In primary education, the focus was on quality assurance and on the introduction of assistance measures adapted to learning difficulties and the implementation of inclusive schools. In addition, the production of ICT materials for primary school classes was expanded in 2019. Changes in secondary education took place in the sectors of smart technologies trainings and continued the smooth transition from lower to upper secondary education. Furthermore, changes were made in adapting the end of study exams in secondary education according to international standards. Changes in higher education were based on the four-year-plan 2018-2021 of the University of Luxembourg, focusing on quality assurance, advancing learning and teaching, working on the achievement of international excellence in research, and fostering entrepreneurship. Some actions have been taken, however, others are still on its way and need to be implemented. The challenges to be addressed are the maintenance of multilingualism as an asset of education and training systems at all levels, the ability of the Luxembourgish education system to integrate children and youth from different backgrounds, and the ability to overcome inequalities in learning outcomes. The reforms undertaken form the foundation for addressing the challenges in the short and medium term. [less ▲]

Lately, researchers, journalists, and regulators are devoting attention to dark patterns, defined as "design choices that benefit an online service by coercing, steering or deceiving users into making decisions that, if fully informed and capable of selecting alternatives, they would not make". Those patterns that have the purpose" or the "substantial effect of obscuring, subverting, or impairing user autonomy, decision-making, or choice" have also been qualified as dark. These definitions are dense: they contain concepts like coercion, nudging, and deception that all alone would deserve an entire work to be discussed. [less ▲]
