Qu’est ce qui influence votre santé ? - What influences your health ?

BY FRANÇOIS VAN LISHOUT
@ VOL 1 ON NOV 20, 2014

Dans cette vidéo, je parlerai tout d’abord de mes recherches sur les facteurs génétiques jouant un rôle dans des maladies complexes telles que le cancer, l’asthme, le diabète et la maladie d’Alzheimer. On peut espérer que d’ici une dizaine d’années, le médecin pourra prédire sur base de vos gènes, quel traitement est le plus adapté dans votre cas. En attendant d’en arriver là, vous pouvez dès aujourd’hui faire quelque chose pour votre santé, notamment en faisant du sport régulièrement. Je montrerai comment la course à pied a changée ma vie et donnerai des conseils pour pratiquer ce sport correctement. En effet, beaucoup de gens abandonnent cette activité à cause de problèmes de genoux. Ceux-ci peuvent pourtant être évité en faisant principalement attention à trois choses : sa technique de course, porter des chaussures adaptées et écouter son corps (notamment, ne pas vouloir en faire trop du jour au lendemain).

 

In this video, I will first talk about my research activities, which focuses on genetic factors influencing complex diseases like cancer, asthma, diabetes and Alzheimer disease. We can expect that in about ten years, doctors will be able to predict, based on your genes, which treatment is best indicated in your case. Before we get there, you can already start today doing something for your health, for instance by doing sports regularly. I will show how running changed my life and give some advices on how to do it right. Indeed, many people give up this activity because of knee problems. However, these can be avoided, mainly by paying attention to three things: the running technique, wearing appropriate shoes and listening to your body (in particular, avoiding doing too much from one day to the other).

Yes We Can! (Turn our trash cans into art on Milpas)

BY SHARON BYRNE
@ VOL 12 ON OCT 29, 2014

Sharon Byrne is having a great time discovering how much fun urban renewal projects can be. She’s presently engaged in raising the profile of Santa Barbara’s Eastside, first by making it safe, then turning it into a national Neighborhood-of-the-Year winner. She’s discovered an incredible community of people that love working on their neighborhood, and have pulled together to do amazing things in it. Tonight, you’re going to see one of the most ambitious projects this tremendous Eastside team has ever attempted: Yes We Can – a project to turn our public trash cans from blight into art, using the talents of our children and the strength of our youth arts programs. Enjoy!
