Les métiers du sport, de l'aventure et de la découverte Pilote d'avions: Définition: Il existe 2 grandes catégories de pilotes: les pilotes de ligne et les pilotes professionnels. L’image la plus répandue est celle du pilote de ligne, qui assure le transport de voyageurs au sein de grandes compagnies aériennes. Quant aux pilotes professionnels, ils peuvent exercer différentes activités aériennes correspondant à chacune des étapes de leur formation (tractage de banderoles publicitaires, photographies aériennes, largage de parachutistes, instructions dans les aéroclubs). Il s’agit d’un métier prestigieux mais difficile qui exige une résistance physique et nerveuse à toute épreuve (nuits blanches, décalage horaire, pression liée à la sécurité des passagers). Pour devenir pilote d’avion, voici quelques exemples d’écoles: - Belgian Flight School à Charleroi, Namur ou Liège - Aviation academy à Zaventem - Royal Verviers Aviation ASBL à Verviers

Bar Coded Boarding Pass Bar code on a boarding pass. Here shown in red, normally it is black for optimum readability. BCBP (bar-coded boarding pass) is the name of the standard used by more than 200 airlines.[1] BCBP defines the 2-Dimensional (2D) bar code printed on a boarding pass or sent to a mobile phone for electronic boarding passes. BCBP was part of the IATA Simplifying the Business program, which issued an industry mandate for all boarding passes to be bar coded. It's now illegal to unlock your cell phone This country really is owned by the corporations. It’s sad, but this is a perfect example. American cell phone companies already charge us an obscene amount for often spotty service (I wrote a while back about my French cell phone plan that costs $25 a month and has unlimited calls and text, including free calls to the US from France). My iPhone plan here in the states – the “cheap” plan – costs me $93 a month. No, but that wasn’t enough for the greedy cell phone companies. Not only will they not unlock your phone (except under some circumstances, differs by carrier), but now it’s “illegal” for you to get it unlocked yourself.

IATA Simplifying the Business The International Air Transport Association (IATA /aɪˈɑːtə/[1]) is the trade association for the world’s airlines. It represents some 240 airlines or more than 84% of total air traffic. IATA supports airline activity and helps formulate industry policy and standards. It is headquartered in Montreal, Canada with Executive Offices in Geneva, Switzerland.[2] History[edit] The Most Ridiculous Law of 2013 (So Far): It Is Now a Crime to Unlock Your Smartphone - Derek Khanna When did we decide that we wanted a law that could make unlocking your smartphone a criminal offense? The answer is that we never really decided. Reuters

But a bale of burnt-out Christmas tree lights the size of a love seat? That weighs around 2200 pounds, according to Raymond Li, the general manager of Yong Chang Processing, a scrap metal processor in the southern Chinese town of Shijiao. He would know: on a recent Saturday morning I stood between him and three such bales, or 6600 pounds of Christmas tree lights that Americans had tossed into recycling bins, dropped off at the Salvation Army, or sold to a roving junk man.

TEDD - Tissue Engineering for Drug Development Organ-like human tissue models are an important tool for drug development and evaluation of active substances. The TEDD national competence centre pools and transfers knowledge and technologies in order to promote the further development and application of in vitro cell and tissue culture. Through concrete research projects and knowledge transfer within a network of partners from various interest groups, a platform has been created which actively contributes to the development and application of alternative test methods for routine use in industry. The Competence Centre for Tissue Engineering for Drug Development at the Zurich University of Applied Sciences is receiving start-up funding from the Gebert Ruef Foundation. In 2010 the project was one of the winners of the annual call for projects "BREF – Brückenschläge mit Erfolg" (building bridges successfully).

EURL ECVAM Validation of methods which reduce, refine or replace the use of animals for safety testing and efficacy/potency testing of chemicals, biologicals and vaccines The European Union Reference Laboratory for alternatives to animal testing (EURL ECVAM) has been formally established in 2011, due to the increasing need for new methods to be developed and proposed for validation in the European Union. EURL ECVAM is hosted by the Joint Research Centre, Institute for Health and Consumer Protection (IHCP) located in Ispra, Italy. EURL ECVAM has a long tradition in the validation of methods which reduce, refine or replace the use of animals for safety testing and efficacy/potency testing of chemicals, biologicals and vaccines. Research laboratories are able to submit to EURL ECVAM for scientific validation the alternative methods to animal testing that they have developed. The menu on the left hand side of the page helps you browse through the main content sections of the EURL ECVAM web site.
