Fisheries and aquaculture in Europe [Newsletter] January 2014 No 63

In any case, as from next year, around EUR 150 million will be available for Member States to purchase new patrol vessels or aircraft and to train more personnel. With another EUR 480 million, the new European Maritime and Fisheries Fund will continue to support current operations and also start funding innovative techniques such as DNA analysis to pinpoint a batch’s exact strand and point of origin. In parallel to all this, new rules against waste and overfishing will come into force on January 1st 2014 with the reform of the Common Fisheries Policy. And thus the process guaranteeing a rational, responsible use of fish resources by all will be complete.

Schools, pupils and their characteristics: January 2014

The January school census is intended to capture a snapshot of schools, classes and pupils on the census day. There is a risk that the amended data collected in September represents a less accurate snapshot of that day than the data originally submitted. In particular some of the changes that have been made appear to alter class structures rather than providing information on excepted pupils that may have initially been omitted.

Philosophy for children : evaluation report and executive summary

Philosophy for children : evaluation report and executive summary

A more recent longitudinal study of the long-term impact of P4C was conducted in Madrid (Colom et al. 2014). This was intended to track children attending two private schools over 20 years. A total of 455 children aged 6 (first year of primary school) to 18 (final year of high school) from one school were trained in the P4C programme. Another 321 pupils from another school matched on demographic characteristics formed the control group. Data on children’s cognitive, non-cognitive, and academic achievements were collected at three time points, at ages 8, 11/12, and 16. Preliminary analyses of 281 treatment children and 146 control children showed that the programme had positive impacts on general cognitive ability (ES = 0.44), but results on academic achievement were not yet available. The authors implied that the programme was particularly beneficial for lower-ability pupils, but this was not clear from their presentation of the analysis. Moreover, although the study was large scale and long term, pupils were not randomised in terms of receiving P4C instruction, and the study may not be generalisable as participants came from relatively prosperous families. In short, the results from this preliminary analysis should be treated with a high degree of caution.

Higher level qualifications quarterly: January – March 2014

Higher level qualifications quarterly: January – March 2014

requirements for further education teachers were removed from September 2013. 3 Before this change, these qualifications were required by those who wanted to teach in further education colleges and adult and community settings, and they were the minimum requirement for gaining qualified teacher status in the lifelong learning sector, which had led to an increase in the number of certificates issued. Examining all certificates awarded for these qualifications at Level 4, we saw a 23 per cent decline this quarter compared with January – March 2013. Seven of the 50 qualifications with the highest number of certificates issued were in preparing to teach in the lifelong learning sector (see table 3 of the appendix).

Original Article Association between VEGF polymorphisms (936c/t, -460t/c and -634g/c) with haplotypes and coronary heart disease susceptibility

A total of 144 CHD patients were enrolled from cardiology department in Peking University Third Hospital during Nov. 2008-Jun. 2014. The examinations included physical examination, electrocardiogram, myocardial enzyme, cardiac color ultrasound and coronary angiography. And the arteriography result was judged by two experienced physicians. Coronary angiography was identified that the stenosis in at least one of the three main blood arteries (right coronary artery, anterior descending branch and circum- flex branch) was more than 50% and the steno- sis was also tested in two left main coronary arteries. 150 healthy checker in the hospital were selected in the study with normal exami- nation results except atypical chest pain and normal angiography. The coronary angiography results indicated that the stenosis of coronary artery was less than 50%. The subjects with abnormal liver functions, infectious diseases and rheumatic diseases were excluded. Clinical data were shown in Table 1.

The lady noticed a vulvar mass and presented with heavy vaginal bleeding and discomfort in lower abdomen in April 2014. There was no pre- vious history of vaginal discharge or disfunction of bowel.

Color Doppler ultrasonogra- phy revealed vulvar mass and enlargement of bilateral inguinofemoral lymph nodes.
