Trade in aquatic products is the largest global food sector, by value, and Asia represents the main external source of aquatic products into the EU. Current EU policy supporting international trade between Asia and Europe concentrates on issues of food safety as measures of quality, whilst market-forces drive development of standards and labels that identify social and environmental parameters. This project proposes to establish an evidence-based framework to support current stakeholder dialogues organised by a third party certifier. This will contribute to harmonising standards, helping consumers to make fully informed choices with regards to the sustainability and safety of their seafood. The Ethical Aquatic Food Index, a qualitative holistic measure of overall sustainability to support consumers purchasing decisions, will be based on detailed research centred around a Life Cycle Assessment of current processes involved in ensuring aquatic products reach consumers, aligned with analyses from the sustainable livelihoods approach and systems thinking. SMEs based in the EU will participate in this project, particularly the action research phase, enhancing their relative competitiveness. By strengthening the knowledge base surrounding EU-Asia seafood trade the project will provide the evidence required to support further expansion whilst ensuring a fair deal for producers who are meeting appropriate social and environmental goals and offering a safe and sustainable product for consumers. The sectors covered represent the main aquaculture products reaching EU markets; tilapia, catfish, shrimps and prawns. Known case study stakeholders include SMEs in Bangladesh, China, Thailand and Vietnam where sustainability is essential in the face of rapid growth. The research will secondarily improve understanding of opportunities for European exports to supply the expanding middleclass in Asia. Outputs will be promoted through workshops, websites, journal and press articles.

This proposal builds on the outputs of the ASEM Aquaculture Platform, established in 2003 as an EU-Asia framework for dialogue, networking and continuing coordination for sustainable aquaculture development. From 2003-2006, 6 expert workshops targeted key topics (Disease & Health management, Biodiversity & Ecological impacts, Breeding & Domestication, Education, Food safety & Legislation, Food security) and yielded valuable recommendations on future directions in research, production and trade. With increasingly critical demands on aquaculture for food supply and food security, income and employment, the vulnerability of the natural resource issues involved, and the important gains to be realised through developing stronger scientific and economic partnerships between the two regions, the aim is to move more pro-actively into effective policy, into formulation of joint research goals, and into outcomes which contribute to Millennium Development and related goals. The projects major aim is to reconcile ecosystem and economic system demands to consolidate concepts of sustainability in aquaculture development in both regions. Specific actions include: 1) validation of earlier recommendations; 2) translating priority recommendations into concrete actions; 3) facilitate industry interaction between the two regions; 4) build and exchange knowledge and its application. The common denominator of the actions is the concerted effort to initiate joint EU-Asia processes which have impact on research excellence, contributing realistically and effectively to good production practice, improved governance, fair trade, social equity and sustainability. In developing these, the ASEM Aquaculture Platform will strengthen opportunities for the EU aquaculture sector to derive value from its technological and structural assets, and develop valuable trade partnerships, using the driver of import product quality to improve product quality and value in both markets.

CAN THO CITY, Vietnam, Feb. 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- UBM, the organizer of Aquaculture Vietnam 2017 launched the event at a press conference in Can Tho on February 22. To be held 25-27 October at the Can Tho International Exhibition Fair Centre (EFC), Aquaculture Vietnam 2017 will address issues to support the further sustainable development of the Vietnamese aquaculture industry. According to UBM Asia's Group Director - ASEAN, Ms. Rungphech (Rose) Chitanuwat, "Aquaculture Vietnam 2017 will cover the whole aquaculture sector value chain, including feed, health and nutrition, genetics, equipment, processing and much more. A diverse technical and scientific program featuring locally and internationally renowned speakers will be complemented by a major trade show with leading exhibitors from around ASEAN and the world, showcasing the latest in products and services. Our objective is to provide aquaculture professionals valuable opportunities to network and meet decision makers, create business opportunities and provide solutions to their business challenges." Aquaculture is essential to meet the future demand for seafood products. The sector plays an important role in the economy of Vietnam. Seafood exports in 2016 grew by 7.4 percent in value to US$7.05 billion, accounting for 24 percent of the country's total agricultural, forestry and fisheries exports, according to the Vietnam Association of Seafood Producers and Exporters (VASEP).  The value of Vietnam's seafood exports is expected to increase by 5 percent this year to around US$7.5 billion.  Aquaculture production accounts for about 65% of Vietnam's total fisheries exports in value, with shrimp, mainly black tiger prawn accounting for about half of the total export value. Given aquaculture's strategic importance, the Vietnamese government aims to massively upgrade the country's shrimp industry with a view to boosting exports. Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc recently said the shrimp industry should strive for an export value of US$10 billion by 2025, to account for 10 percent of the country's GDP. He noted that "inadequate high tech for intensive farming has resulted in only modest productivity of 250 to 300 kilos of shrimp per hectare; if productivity is doubled, we can immediately reach our goal." As Asia's leading organizer of exhibitions, UBM is committed to driving innovation in and boosting the competitiveness of the Vietnamese aquaculture industry. Ms. Chitanuwat noted that "Aquaculture Vietnam 2017 can help Vietnam reach this and other goals, by facilitating Vietnam's aquaculture sectors development by partnering with governments, NGO's, industry and academia to promote best practice production systems that are environmentally friendly, consumer-oriented and economically viable." "Recognizing Can Tho's crucial role in Vietnamese aquaculture, as one of the most potential aquaculture provinces in Vietnam, and that it is home of the College of Aquaculture and Fisheries, Can Tho University - one of the country's leading units doing research in aquaculture and fisheries, it just makes sense to hold Aquaculture Vietnam 2017 here," commented by UBM Asia's Managing Director, Mr. M Gandhi "The Can Tho International Exhibition Fair Center (EFC), will provide an outstanding setting and venue for this important industry event," she said. Aquaculture Vietnam 2017 is supported by our valued partners; the Vietnam Fisheries Society (VINAFIS), International Collaborating Centre For Aquaculture and Fisheries Sustainability (ICAFIS), the Aquaculture Without Frontier and The International Aqua Feed Magazine. As a part of the launch, UBM organized visits to an aquaculture farm in Vinh Long province, and a seafood processing facility in Can Tho City.  The visits helped provide insights into the opportunities and challenges, and needs of the Vietnamese aquaculture sector in an increasingly competitive market. "Don't miss this opportunity to enhance your aquaculture operation. See you at Aquaculture Vietnam 2017, where you will be inspired by ideas and innovations," concluded Mr. M Gandhi.  For more information, please visit our website www.aquaculturevn.com. Aquaculture Vietnam 2017 is the Vietnam's International Aquaculture Industry Event which will present the latest innovations in aquaculture, fisheries and seafood, for the whole value chain, from production to processing and packaging to plate. The show will be held on 25 - 27 October 2017 at the Can Tho International Exhibition Fair Center (EFC), Can Tho City, Vietnam.

We propose a new parallel algorithm of local support vector machines, called kSVM for the effectively non-linear classification of large datasets. The learning strategy of kSVM uses kmeans algorithm to partition the data into k clusters, followed which it constructs a non-linear SVMin each cluster to classify the data locally in the parallel way on multi-core computers. The kSVM algorithm is faster than the standard SVM in the non-linear classification of large datasets while maintaining the classification correstness. The numerical test results on 4 datasets from UCI repository and 3 benchmarks of handwritten letters recognition showed that our proposal is efficient compared to the standard SVM. © Springer International Publishing Switzerland 2015.

The aim of this research was to explore the relationship between chewing ability and dental functional status, perceived oral health-related quality of life, and a number of background variables in a Vietnamese population. The cluster stratified sample consisted of 2,805 dentate subjects aged 20 years from urban and rural areas in Southern Vietnam. Chewing ability was assessed using a questionnaire that included questions on perceived difficulty with respect to eight foods and three questions of the Oral Health Impact Profile that were considered relevant. Only a minority reported serious problems with chewing ability (reporting difficult or very difficult to chew). The logistic regression analysis on chewing ability outcomes showed significant relationships between chewing ability and having 10 teeth in each arch, having sufficient molar regions ( 1 molar posterior occlusal pair [POP] bilaterally) for hard and soft foods, and having sufficient premolar regions ( 3 POPs), especially for hard foods. In the hierarchical functional classification system, likelihood to report complaints on chewing ability appeared to discriminate in the branch " 10 teeth in each arch." Likelihood at subsequent levels ranged from approximately 1.5 to 3. In the branch "< 10 teeth in each arch," likelihood did not discriminate because the groups lacked sufficient homogeneity. Chewing ability and oral health-related quality of life were positively correlated. Among all dental and other variables, decreased chewing ability was strongest when correlated with older age categories and not correlated or weakly correlated with sex, socioeconomic status, and residence.

Physical Review D - Particles, Fields, Gravitation and Cosmology | Year: 2013

We show that the typical 3-3-1 models are only self-consistent if they contain interactions that explicitly violate the lepton number. The 3-3-1 model with right-handed neutrinos can by itself work as an economical 3-3-1 model as a natural recognition of the above criteria, while it also produces an inert scalar triplet (η) responsible for dark matter. This is ensured by a Z 2 symmetry (assigned so that only η is odd while all other multiplets which perform the economical 3-3-1 model are even), which is not broken by the vacuum. The minimal 3-3-1 model can provide dark matter by a similar realization. Taking the former into account, we show that the dark matter candidate (Hη) contained in η transforms as a singlet in the effective limit under the standard model symmetry and is naturally heavy. The Hη relic density and direct detection cross section will have the correct values when the mass of Hη is in TeV range, as expected. The model predicts the Hη mass mHη= λ5×2 TeV and the Hη-nucleon scattering cross section σHη-N=1.56×10-44 cm2, provided that the new neutral Higgs boson is much heavier than the dark matter. © 2013 American Physical Society.

We are reporting a 51-year-old female patient having a history of direct carotid cavernous fistula (CCF) which was treated by internal carotid artery (ICA) ligation 17 year ago. She presented to Ho Chi Minh City University Medical Center with symptoms of recurrent CCF. The recurred CCF was supplied by multiple feeders coming from anterior, posterior communicating artery and the recanalized left ICA. Her CCF was not plausible for another surgical ligation and was referred for endovascular treatment. The fistula was eventually occluded by percutaneous embolization via the right ICA approach. Through this case, we would like to discuss about the treatment strategies of those having recurrent CCF with preexisted ICA ligation. In Vietnam, previously carotico-cavernous fistula was mainly treated with muscle occlusion, carotid artery ligation or combinations of these methods. There were reported good outcomes for treatment of CCF surgically. However, surgical repairs had carried, not only complication, but a risk of recurrence due to recanalization of the previously ligated ICA. Since the emergence of endovascular intervention, the treatment of direct CCF has evolved from surgical ligation to angiographic embolization using balloon or coils via artery route or venous access. This endovascular method currently is the treatment of choice for traumatic CCF due to its ability to preserve the carotid artery and flexibility in treatment strategy with various approaches to the fistula.
