Many patients are referred to palliative hospice care in severe clinical condition with life expectancy of just several dozen hours. Short-term hospitalisation can hardly optimally fulfil the needs of the patients and their families and the demand placed on the nursing personnel is high. Three case reports are presented here in which the short-term hospitalisation was perceived by the families of the terminally ill patients both positively and negatively, and the causes of the opposite approaches to short-term hospitalisations are discussed. Prevention of the negative approach to these short-term hospitalisations is supported by systematic promotion of palliative hospice care and education of healthcare professionals in this area.

With a growing trend in the uptake of advanced ICTs to assist in everyday tasks; ubiquitous computing is an integral part of the modern European society. However, those who are either incapacitated or elderly are often unable to take advantage of the opportunities offered by ICT. The dynamic nature and changing demands of the future European society is inevitably going to have socio-economic implications - with social inclusion at the forefront. Home automation is a $1.3bn industry with an estimated market value of $10bn by 2010, however the smart home market is an area with limited flexibility for the changing European society. The current solutions are expensive and require extensive expertise for operation. The market itself is fragmented, with the dominating players residing in the USA and Middle-East, as are the contributing devices/interfaces to the technology with little or no consideration for differing needs and abilities of the end-user. The Digital Smart Home Solution (DSHS) is a home automation system that will act as the glue to integrate third-party devices compliant with the EIB/KNX communication standards. It will do so by providing a low-cost server architecture the central intelligence unit (CIU) comprising of a physical server (interfacing the devices), a software-based service gateway with underlying artificial intelligence capable of adapting the system to the intended user(s) and environment, and a user-friendly graphical user interface (GUI). Current limitations lie within ascertaining the system requirements of the disabled and elderly for such as system, as well as allowing the retro-fitting of third-party devices to become compliant with the DSHS. Furthermore, specific user-system interaction will need to be further investigated to provide ultimate user convenience.

The AeroPortal project is created by the merger of the two support actions AeroSME and SCRATCH. It is the prime objective of AeroPortal to support aeronautical SMEs in advancing their technology base and their competitiveness through participation in European RTD projects. This is done by creating a single point of reference for information and project opportunities and by providing a wide ranging direct support encompassing: - The support to help SMEs integrate both Level 1 and 2 proposals put forward by large companies; - The support to SMEs to set up their own project proposals. AeroPortal will set up, and maintain, an internet portal, which will be an exchange place where project ideas, offers and requests of technical capabilities, partner searches, etc. can be posted and supported by an interactive database containing profiles of European SMEs and offering effective search features. In addition to the virtual networking provided by the internet portal, AeroPortal will establish a permanent cooperation with all interested groups involved in support activities to aeronautical SMEs, such as SME clusters, National and Regional Associations, and also other funded Aeronautics Support Actions. These groups will be invited to become members of the AeroPortal Multiplier Group. AeroPortal will cover all 30\ countries associated to FP7. Particular effort will be paid in continuing to stimulate the participation of Member States with aeronautical R&D potential. The following measures will be implemented in AeroPortal: - Establishment of the Multiplier Group open to all Aeronautics SME associations and groups; - Set up and maintenance of an internet portal for SMEs including an interactive and dynamic SME database; - Organisation of and participation in 20 national/regional information days, of which 4 in Member States with aeronautical R&D potential; - 2 Technology Workshops to support the integration of SMEs in large industry-led Level 1 proposals; - Organisation of a Level 2 proposal matchmaking workshop prior the 3rd call; - Training of SMEs and Multipliers; - To audit and help SMEs to structure their corporate research (300 audits or re-audits are targeted); - To set up a list of product oriented expressed research needs from Aeronautical SMEs; - To service and submit in the 2nd and 3rd calls at least 40 collaborative RTD proposals initiated by SMEs. The duration of the project is 30 months, starting in December 2007.

The Researchers Night 2011 in the Czech Republic wants to present researchers to the public in an unusual way, in the roles of amusing experiments demonstrators, moderators, musicians, photographers, informal lecturers. The partners entering this project want to play a part in changing the current public attitudes towards researchers. They welcome the opportunity to introduce researchers as people who are involved in the ordinary life the same way as the others, and to show the public how the researchers contribute to the well-being of the society. The activities planned for the event aim will bring researchers and the public together, letting them cooperate and experience amusing activities together. The visitors will discover that researchers are people whose job not only is interesting and exciting but also gives results that we utilize in our everyday life. It will be emphasized that there is no need to be a genius to become a researcher, and particularly the young visitors should leave the event convinced that a scientific career could be a choice for them when they make decisions about their professional lives. To make as many people aware of the upcoming event and to communicate the message of the event also to non-comers, awareness campaign under common motto Science Opens Spaces is planned for the project. The role of the European Commission in supporting this particular event will be explained and the EC will be presented as an institution that continuously and largely supports research Europe-wide.

The effect of extra-root nutrition on sugar beet growth and development during vegetation period was examined in field trials. Simultaneously, yield and technological quality of tubers were evaluated. Sugar beet leaf area was increasing until August when it reached 715 grams per plant. Conclusively highest weight gains were noticed between 28th July and 12th August. By the end of the harvest, the weight of leaves was decreased to 550 grams per plant as the result of older leaves necrosis. The final leaf weight was in individual variants in range of 373 to 778 grams per plant. The highest weight was found in variant with magnesium application of Magnitra L fertilizer. High dynamics of root growth was recorded from 1st July to 12th August and from 8th September to harvest. The highest final tuber weight (1,274 to 1,601 grams) was observed after Carbonbor K, Carbonbor and Bortrac fertilizer application, i. e. boron application varieties. The highest yield was reached after sodium nitrate application, while the lowest was in control group. Treated groups got in average better outcomes than control group. Alpha amino nitrogen content was low, the lowest values were in average determined after higher boron content fertiliser application. Soluble ash content was in range of 0.33 to 0.42 %. The lowest one was in control group and the groups with boron application fertiliser. MB factor value was positive in all groups and the highest quality sugar beet was harvested in the groups with higher boron application. After yield results evaluation, two relationships were determined; a very strong relationship (with r = 0,834**) between MB factor and water-soluble ash values and a negative relationship (with r = -0,613**) between digestion and MB factor.

This article analyzes the legislative and technical requirements for electromagnetic compatibility of machinery for the production of sugar. Compliance with the EMC requirements is important in terms of the process of placing products on the market and also in terms of practical design and installation of machinery. Failure to comply with EMC requirements may lead to failure of machines and increase the risk of dangerous situations. The machinery (through their design – including electrical and electronic components) must comply with the requirements of Government Decree no. 601/2006 Coll., on technical requirements for products in terms of electromagnetic compatibility. These requirements are detailed in the relevant technical standards series CSN EN 61000-6. Exceptions are provided for fixed installations. Practical realization of the measurement of electromagnetic radiation and testing of electromagnetic susceptibility is the only way to properly verify the EMC parameters of machinery. © 2015, Listy Cukrovarnicke a Reparske.All Rights Reserved.
