The construction industry consumes an enormous amount of global resources and produces more waste than any other sector. The need to move toward sustainable development in construction requires significant changes in construction and demolition (C&D) waste management. The estimation of waste, recycling materials and reusable components could be vital in waste management, achieving huge efficiency in the construction industry. Moreover, a typical building comprises of an extensive amount of materials and components with various characteristics. This study proposes a Building Information Modelling (BIM)-based system to allow the circular economy by storing information of the materials and components of buildings and by effectively managing the recycling of materials and reuse of components. A tool which serves as a Material and Component (M&C) bank was developed with PHP and MYSQL by making use of a web browser able to extract the materials and component information of a building through the BIM model. This information is vital for several uses such as quantification of C&D waste and assessing for the design for deconstruction. It can also be used to obtain the information of the reusable condition of the components and instructions for the reconstruction. [less ▲]

GNSS, particularly the GPS and GLONASS satellite constellations are commonly used for accurate estimation of atmospheric parameters. The high accuracy is accomplished by sophisticated analysis methods and expensive high-end receivers and antennas along with precise products and bias corrections. The recent market introduction of low-cost dual frequency receivers that can produce raw data from multiple constellations offers an insight into the potential use of these receivers for meteorological applications. Here we demonstrate that GPS and GLONASS measurements from a low-cost dual-frequency receiver can be used to estimate the Zenith Total Delay ( ZTD) commensurate to meteorological applications.

Micropollutants generated in urban agglomerates are commonly found in aquatic environments where they may present a potential danger. Constructed wetlands (CWs) are an attractive alternative for the removal of those compounds from the effluent of medium-sized wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs). To this end, the INTERREG Greater Region-funded project EmiSûre aims to find solutions to mitigate the emission of micropollutants from wastewater facilities. As a part of the project, this study starts with the trial of vertical flow (VF) CWs under lab-scale conditions aiming to select the best substrate. Following steps are designed to optimize the performance of VFCWs in terms of removal of micropollutans under real conditions (i.e. matrix, seasonal changes, temperature) and to derive first approaches for dimensioning. From all the examined substrates, activated biocoal showed the best results in removing macro- and micropollutants and is expected to be the most suitable substrate in long term perspectives.

Purpose: Previous research has shown inconsistent time trends in adolescent mental well-being, but potential underlying mechanisms for such trends are yet to be examined. This study investigates cross-national time trends in adolescent mental well-being (psychosomatic health complaints and life satisfaction) in mainly European countries and the extent to which time trends in schoolwork pressure explain these trends. Methods: Data from 915,054 adolescents from 36 countries (50.8% girls; meanage ¼ 13.54; standard deviationage ¼ 1.63) across five Health Behaviour in School-aged Children surveys (2002, 2006, 2010, 2014, and 2018) were included in the analyses. Hierarchical multilevel models estimated cross-national trends in adolescent mental well-being and schoolwork pressure. We also tested whether schoolwork pressure could explain these trends in mental well-being. Results: A small linear increase over time in psychosomatic complaints and schoolwork pressure was found. No change in life satisfaction emerged. Furthermore, there was large cross-country variation in the prevalence of, and trends over time in, adolescent mental well-being and schoolwork pressure. Overall, declines in well-being and increases in schoolwork pressure were apparent in the higher income countries. Across countries, the small increase in schoolwork pressure over time partly explained the decline in psychosomatic health complaints. Conclusions: Our findings do not provide evidence for substantial declines in mental well-being among adolescents. Yet, the small declines in mental well-being and increases in schoolwork pressure appear to be quite consistent across high-income countries. This calls for the attention of public health professionals and policy-makers. Country differences in trends in both adolescent mental well-being outcomes and schoolwork pressure were considerable, which requires caution regarding the cross-national generalization of national trends.

The paper systematizes the international experience of the functioning of tracking and tracing tax stamps and tobacco products, namely on the impact of their introduction on the market and tax revenues. The arguments on the feasibility of application, functionality, cost of implementation, mechanism of financing of expenses, stakeholders etc. are determined. The technological decisions on tracking and tracking based on tax stamps and product brand tracking criteria are classified. Conceptual approaches to the creation and implementation of an electronic tobacco production control and circulation system in Ukraine are proposed. [less ▲]

Nos résultats appellent également à un développement de la culture de l’approche patient-partenaire de soins. Même si ce genre de démarche, favorisant l’implication du patient, est recommandé depuis de nombreuses années, c’est tout le paradigme de l’organisation des systèmes de santé qui doit évoluer en parallèle à l’évolution des besoins sanitaires. Ce paradigme touche aux valeurs, aux représentations de ce que constitue l’acte même de soigner. L’exploration menée auprès des professionnels de santé et des patients révèle des envies d’évolution des pratiques de soins et de la relation soignant-soigné. Cependant, ces volontés sont freinées par des ambiguïtés sur le concept même du patient-partenaire de soins, une connaissance et des compétences limitées en matière d’approche patient-partenaire de soins et des éléments de contexte de travail qui rendent cette évolution impossible. Le point positif est la mise en évidence d’une volonté commune d’évoluer vers un patient plus acteur dans les soins, plus autonome, avec une série d’avantages perçus. On peut dire qu’il existe un décalage important entre la vision souhaitée et ce qui est actuellement possible. Notre projet a permis d’observer une volonté affichée d’évoluer vers davantage d’engagement du patient dans la relation de soin et dans les structures de soins de santé. Le développement attendu passera par une approche systémique de l’engagement tant sur des aspects micro (de la relation de soin) méso (dans la coordination des structures de soins) et macro (avec l’engagement des politiques de santé). Le développement doit s’appuyer sur les initiatives existantes : en ce sens le projet Interreg est une belle façon de promouvoir les échanges de bonnes pratiques au service de cet engagement du patient.

Self-perceived unmet needs in people with typical and atypical parkinsonism (PwP) and their caregivers, support network, personalized ways to address self-perceived unmet needs during confinement, as well as the prevalence of self-reported COVID-19 related symptoms, confirmed SARS-CoV-2 infection, and self-reported COVID-19 related hospitalization in Luxembourg and the Greater Region were assessed. From 18th March to 10th April 2020, 679 PwP were contacted by phone. Data was collected in the form of a semi-structured interview. The thematic synthesis identified 25 themes where PwP need to be supported in order to cope with consequences of the pandemic, and to adapt their daily and health-related activities. The present work highlights that in the context of personalized medicine, depending on the individual needs of support of the patient the identified self-perceived unmet needs were addressed in various ways ranging from one-directed information over interaction up to proactive counseling and monitoring. Family and health professionals, but also other support systems were taking care of the unmet needs of PwP (e.g., shopping, picking-up medication, etc.) during the pandemic. 7/606 PwP (1.15%) reported COVID-19 related symptoms, 4/606 (0.66%) underwent a rRT-PCR-based diagnostic test and 2/606 (0.33%) were confirmed as SARS-CoV-2 positive. None of these PwP reported being hospitalized due to COVID-19. Our results will allow health professionals to expand their services in a meaningful way i.e., personalize their support in the identified themes and thus improve the healthcare of PwP in times of crisis.
