Traditionally, a Service Level Agreement (SLA) including service level metrics is used as an appendix in IT Service Management agreements to define the terms and conditions of delivery and set expectations. However, SLA neither implies nor guarantees the added values that are expected by the customer. Besides, due to the nature of IT services, there always exists uncertainty about the agreed services due to which the perceived risk for both customer and provider is high. Moreover, the quality and quantity of delivered values are mostly hidden by hazy marketing slogans. In order to guarantee the values of an offered service, the deliverable added values should be characterized properly, quantified by means of measurable metrics, and agreed upon between the two parties. Such comprehensive material, including the deliverable added values along with their measurable metrics, is called Service Value Agreement (SVA). This research proposes a platform for IT service offerings based on added values by identifying, as well as quantifying, an organization’s objectives in purchasing Application Management (AM) services from a provider firm.

Aims – The high price of alcohol in the Nordic countries has been a long-standing policy to curb consumption, which has led consumers to importing alcohol from countries with lower prices. This paper seeks to develop a profile of alcohol importers in four Nordic countries. Methods – Cross-sectional data from general population surveys in Denmark (2003–2006), Norway (2004), Sweden (2003–2006) and Finland (2005–2006) were analysed by multiple logistic and linear regression. Independent variables included region, socio-demographics, drinking indicators and alcohol-related problems. Outcome variables were importer status and amount of imported alcohol.  Results – People living in regions close to countries with lower alcohol prices were more often importers and imported higher amounts than people living in other regions. Higher educated persons were more likely to be importers, but the amounts imported were smaller than those by people with lower education. Persons with higher incomes were also more likely to be importers and they also imported larger amounts than people with lower incomes. In Sweden and Denmark regional differences of importer rates were more pronounced for persons of lower incomes. Age, risky single-occasion drinking, risky drinking and alcohol problems were positively related to the amounts of imported alcohol. Conclusions – Private importers in the Nordic countries are an integrated yet heavy drinking segment of society and do not appear to be located on the fringes of society.

As a result of internationalisation, many universities in northern Europe have adopted English as a medium of instruction. At the same time, recent language policies have reinforced the importance of the national language(s) in the academic domain. Parallel language use was introduced and institutionalised in order to ensure students’ right to receive education in their native language and to protect the national language(s) from the ‘threat’ of English. In this article, I discuss the concept of parallel language use and the extent to which it promotes ‘nativeness’ as a benchmark for language use in educational contexts. Drawing on the data collected at a major Swedish university, I show that the development of academic literacy in English is often mistaken for a need to achieve a native-like proficiency. I argue that academic language competence requires both more and less than a native/native-like competence. Thus, academics and students at Swedish universities may be mixing apples and pears and setting unrealistic goals regarding English proficiency in academic contexts, based on the standard native English norms.

Cet article présente une synthèse des recherches en acquisition du français langue seconde/étrangère menées à l’Université de Stockholm. Il fait le lien entre les premiers résultats obtenus au sein du projet InterFra (Interlangue française — développement, interaction et variation) avec les recherches menées récemment sur les stades très avancés. L’article se divise en trois parties. Les deux premières sont rétrospectives, d’abord une description du corpus InterFra — présenté ici dans son intégralité pour la première fois —, puis un bilan des résultats des thèses qui ont utilisé ce corpus, et, finalement, les stades de développement proposés par Bartning et Schlyter (2004). La troisième partie présente un projet sur les stades ultimes d’une L2, High-level proficiency in second language use, programme de recherche commun à cinq départements de l’Université de Stockholm et rend compte des résultats d’études récentes concernant trois groupes d’un niveau proche du locuteur natif, des locuteurs non natifs appelés respectivement avancés, bilingues fonctionnels et quasi-natifs. L’article se clôt sur un bilan de ces études.

Malaria remains a significant public health concern in Mozambique with disease cases reported in almost every province. This study investigates the prediction models of the number of malaria cases in districts of Maputo province. Used data include administrative districts, malaria cases, indoor residual spray and climatic variables temperature, rainfall and humidity. Regression trees and random forest models were developed using the statistical tool R, and applied to predict the number of malaria cases during one year, based on observations from preceding years. Models were compared with respect to the mean squared error (MSE) and correlation coefficient. Indoor Residual Spray (IRS), month of January, minimal temperature and rainfall variables were found to be the most important factors when predicting the number of malaria cases, with some districts showing high malaria incidence. Additionally, by reducing the time window for what historical data to take into account, predictive performance can be increased substantially.

Between 1972 and 1983 the Swedish state gave large-scale aid to the company Svenska Rayon AB (SRA). The company was Sweden’s only producer of rayon yarn during the era of the Cold War. Rayon was seen as a necessity for the Swedish state in case of crisis or war. In a situation where Sweden was shut off from the importation of cotton, rayon yarn would be the replacement material in the production of clothes and cloth. The Swedish government therefore protected the company and its production facilities, despite a poor economic performance. The government gave SRA some 250 million kronor in state aid between 1972 and 1983. What triggered the aid was the interna- tional textile crisis in Europe that began in the 1950s. The Swedish textile industry contracted and the economic results of the rayon company suffered under hardened international competition. In the beginning of the period analyzed, the aid was limited. It escalated over the years and culminated in the last agreement with the company in 1983.The article argues that national security was one explanation for the large amounts of state aid given to the SRA. The government considered rayon production vital to state security. This explanation complements previous research about Swedish state aid in the time period, which has mainly been interpreted from the perspective of labour policies. A second explanation is provided by the Swedish system of corporatism. Sweden has been described as one of the most corporative states in Europe, and the analysis of the aid offered to the SRA shows that the state and the company became more and more interlinked. In the case of the 1983 agreement, most of the text was produced by the two parts together. The article ends with a discussion of the case of the SRA as an example of the dissolution of the prevailing economic policy model in Sweden. This policy had been shaped by the so-called Rhen- Meidner model, and the state’s aid to the company shows how the model was abandoned, starting the movement towards a new economic policy.

Nej, det gick inte att få resning i ett mål som avgjordes av tingsrätten 2009 bara för att senare praxis från Arbetsdomstolen och EU-domstolen tyder på att tingsrätten dömde fel. Det har en SAS-pilot fått erfara sedan Sveriges Högsta domstol, HD, avslagit hans resningsansökan.

Är medlemsstaterna skyldiga att fortlöpande se till att kollektivavtalen i landet inte innehåller några otillåtna begränsningar eller förbud mot att hyra in arbetskraft? Och är de begränsningar som fi nns i kollektivavtalen mellan parterna på den privata sektorn i Finland förenliga med bemanningsdirektivet? Det är frågorna i ett mål som den finska Arbets-domstolen har hänskjutit till EU-domstolen och som är av stort intresse inte bara för Finland.

Systemic Practice and Action Research (SPAR) denotes a family of approaches with different theoretical foundations, the constructive encounter between which may propel the movement forward. A persistent scholarly debate persists between the so-called emancipatory and pragmatic strands, motivating perceptions of the impossibility to jointly accomplish both ‘dialogical’ and ‘revolutionary’ commitments of the movement. This reflects that SPAR is still grappling with how to maintain a normative foundation while prioritising local change processes, thus reconciling what is universally ‘right’ with the locally ‘good’ in order to foster an operational view of the nature of reciprocity and justification. In this paper, I mobilise experiences from five action research projects in the field of natural resource governance to undertake a methodological introspection to examine how we as SPAR professionals may negotiate our approach during project implementation and the encounter of concrete realities and stakeholder interests. The objective is to offer an alternative view on the relationship between the ‘dialogical’ and the ‘revolutionary’ elements of SPAR; a view which rejects a dichotomisation in favour of a critical-pragmatic recursive praxis that depends on the capacity of the researcher to negotiate methodological virtues with co-researchers in the process.

We investigate a large-scale experimental scheme implemented in Sweden whereby the state in the year 2000 required all alcohol retail stores in selected areas to stay open on Saturdays. The purpose of the scheme was to evaluate possible social consequences of expanding access to alcohol during weekends. Using rich individual level data we show that this increase in alcohol availability raised both alcohol use and crime.

A challenge for teaching and learning in compulsory school music education, is how to make pupils learn music even between school lessons: To let processes of musical creativity and learning exist in a continuum in the pupils' lives rather than just disparate moments in the few music lessons offered. The advance of digital technology combined with the availability of computers for the majority of pupils could present some solutions to this problem, but each solution have their own flip sides too. In this article two possible solutions are presented from a pragmatist perspective: One solution consists of a memory stick with a complete open source operating system complete with software for musical and media learning, production and composition, while the other solution is concerned with Web 2.0 solutions with software running via the web browser. The two solutions have pros and cons regarding didactical impolication, ethical and philosophical implications and legal implications that are important for any music teacher to take into account.

In order to establish a versatile and convenient method for the analysis of lipids, electrospray ionization tandem mass spectrometry (ESI-MS/MS) was applied to a HPLC separation on a cyanopropyl-bonded stationary phase. A binary gradient mobile phase system consisting of hexane, toluene, methanol and a stable electrospray yielding sodium adduct ions could be used to generate specific product ions in MS/MS mode. By applying the LC/ESI-MS/MS method on an egg yolk sample, 29 different molecular species of phosphatidylethanolamines, phosphatidylcholines, and lysophosphatidylcholines could be detected within 25 min.

The potential role of endogenously synthesized polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) is a highly overlooked area. Elongation of very long chain (ELOVL) fatty acids in mammals is catalyzed by the ELOVL enzymes to which the PUFA elongase ELOVL2 belongs. To determine its in vivo function, we have investigated how ablation of ELOVL2, which is highly expressed in liver, affects hepatic lipid composition and function in mice. The Elovl2 ablated mice displayed substantial decreased levels of 22:6(n3), docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), and 22:5(n6), docosapentaenoic acid (DPAn6), followed by an accumulation of 22:5(n3) and 22:4(n6) in both liver and serum showing that ELOVL2 primarily controls the elongation process of PUFAs with 22 carbons to produce 24 carbon precursors for DHA and DPA(n6) formation in vivo. The impaired PUFA levels positively influenced hepatic levels of the key lipogenic transcriptional regulator sterol regulatory element binding protein 1c (SREBP1c) as well as its downstream target genes. Surprisingly, the Elovl2 ablated mice were resistant against hepatic steatosis and diet induced weight gain implying that hepatic DHA synthesis via ELOVL2, except controlling de novo lipogenesis, also regulates lipid storage and fat mass expansion in an SREBP1c independent fashion. The changes in fatty acid metabolism were reversed by dietary supplementation with DHA.

The effect of office type on sickness absence among office employees was studied prospectively in 1852 employees working in (1) cell-offices; (2) shared-room offices; (3) small, (4) medium-sized and (5) large open-plan offices; (6) flex-offices and (7) combi-offices. Sick leaves were self-reported two years later as number of (a) short and (b) long (medically certified) sick leave spells as well as (c) total number of sick leave days. Multivariate logistic regression analysis was used, with adjustment for background factors. A significant excess risk for sickness absence was found only in terms of short sick leave spells in the three open-plan offices. In the gender separate analysis, this remained for women, whereas men had a significantly increased risk in flex-offices. For long sick leave spells, a significantly higher risk was found among women in large open-plan offices and for total number of sick days among men in flex-offices. Practitioner Summary: A prospective study of the office environment's effect on employees is motivated by the high rates of sick leaves in the workforce. The results indicate differences between office types, depending on the number of people sharing workspace and the opportunity to exert personal control as influenced by the features that define the office types.
