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).

The Flying Grass Carpet

Bart Cardinaal and Nadine Roos of HUNK-design and Eddy Kaijser (ID Eddy) have a dream, and it's an inspired one: to see their "Flying Grass Carpet" project take flight and bring a touch of parklife to city centers around the world. Modeled after the idea of creating a giant Persian rug, the massive carpet measures up to 58m x 32 m -- it's adjustable, going down to 22m x 18m -- creating an instant field for anyone to enjoy as they would any park. The carpet is made of over 85 million pieces of artificial grass, using varied lengths and colors to create a satisfying texture. Bart, Nadine, and Eddy's goal is to have the carpet travel from city to city. So far, "The Flying Grass Carpet" has been spotted in the Netherlands (Rotterdam and Amsterdam) and Germany (Aachen). If you'd like to have it visit your city, you can find out how from the official project website. Bart and Nadine coordinate Pecha Kucha Night in Rotterdam, and presented the "Flying Grass Carpet" project at last week's inaugural PKN in Maastricht.

The Flying Grass Carpet in Budapest

PechaKucha Night in Budapest Vol. 12 was held back in May, and you may remember that at the time we mentioned that PKN Amsterdam organizers Bart Cardinaal and Nadine Roos' "Flying Grass Carpet" was going to make an appearance.

PKN Budapest and the Flying Carpet

Way back in 2009, PechaKucha Night in Budapest Vol. 12 played host to Bart Cardinaal and Nadine Roos' "Flying Grass Carpet" -- and we even covered it in a post. Looking through Flickr we just fell upon this new photo that was taken at the same time as the one in the original post (both by Flickr user bujatt), and we just wanted to share it because it's such an amazing view.

In Defense of Mariah Carey and Genoa's Duplex Ride

Presentations We'll say this: there aren't many people who are bigger fans of Mariah Carey than Tom McBride. In his presentation (from PKN Blue Mountains Vol. 1), he shares the enthusiasm and infectious passion he has for his biggest idol. In this presentation (in Italian, from PKN Genoa Vol. 1) by Marco Cacciamani we learn about Duplex Ride, a cultural association founded in 2010 and interested in all forms of art, which mainly organizes events for electronic music and video projections. 
Duplex Ride is an idea in motion, it's an art collective, electronic research, experimenting in all its forms, including painting, photography, and writing. Posters There's no new addition to the Tumblr blog today, so instead we highlight one of the posters we recently added. Above, a dog takes care of washing down last month's PKN Mendoza Vol. 5.  Photos We now have full galleries of photos from last week's PKN Tokyo Vol. 94 to share, which you'll find on both Facebook and Flickr. All photos were taken by our regular photographer, Michael Holmes, along with his assistant Nomi.  Calendar We have three PKNs happening tonight (August 2): PKN Winter Harbor Vol. 6, PKN Springfield, IL Vol. 8, and PKN Victoria Vol. 10. Tomorrow you can look to these three cities: PKN Panjim Vol. 3, PKN Springfield, MO Vol. 7, and PKN Hakata Vol. 7.

The Future of Cancer Care

“With all these innovations, we’re left with a larger rate of cancer survivors.” Due to considerable progress in cancer treatment and survival rates, the population of cancer survivors can be anticipated to keep expanding in the foreseeable future. Though these patients may be cured of their original disease, survivors often have a to deal with a compromised quality of life. In “The Future of Cancer Care” from PKN Maastricht Vol. 24, Anna Verhulst, a fifth-year medical student and a cancer rehabilitation researcher, proposes a entirely new way of looking at cancer survivorship and rehabilitation programs.

"Help us find the last [missing] Fujita panel so we can rebuild the Brazil Cafe in Ginza!"In "The Great Coffee Caper " from Tokyo's Brazilian Lifestyle Powered by PechaKucha, Brazilian Ambassador to Japan,  André Corrêa do Lago shares his piqued curiosity when, as a teenager in Sao Paulo, acquiring a peculiar book of Brazilian architecture that had been published in Japan, it's last page stunning him with images the "Brazil Cafe", a coffee house in a posh corner of Tokyo for its most chic denizens, inside which was decorated with contemporary furniture, its walls adorned by a magnificent mural painted by Japan's most famous artist of the time, Léonard Tsugouharu Foujita. Ambassador Lago's interest in the book, and in the cafe, never wavered and when appointed to his position in Japan, and in an effort to re-capture Japan's shared love for Brazilian coffee, he commissioned his staff to research the cafe's history, uncovering a caper of a tale, which has led to the quest for a missing painting and a restoration of Tokyo's once legendary "Brazil Cafe."
