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).

Развитие и революция в автомобилния бранш

@ VOL 4
ON JAN 21, 2017
Темата на Димитър Пулев, а и негово хоби са автомобилите. И по - специално ще ни запознае с иновациите при двигателите, които се правят с цел по - малко изпускане на вредни емисии във въздуха. По негови думи бъдещето е в електрическите двигатели и във водородните автомобили, за които той подробно ще разкаже.
Интересен факт е, че поради голямото замърсяване, което се получава от работат на дизеловия двигател, някои големи градове в света предвиждат до 2025 г. забрана на използване на автомобили, работещи с дизел.

Takram Design Engineering
Kaz Yoneda (speaking at PKN Tokyo Vol. 96), along with his colleagues at Takram Design Engineering, was approached by a Korean company with a rather bleak vision of the future. He was entrusted with a mission that (should he choose to accept it) could, perhaps, save humanity. His task: to design a water bottle for a future in which our major resources have been exhausted. His team -- as is their custom -- took the concept to the Nth degree and developed a number of external and to-be-implanted biotics that would allow their users the ability to live off 165mL of water a day.
The Making of an Energy Efficient Car
More of us on the road means more energy consumption. Can we find a way to make automobiles sustainable for the future? In today's Presentation of the Day, "The Making of an Energy-Efficient Car" from PKN Aalborg Vol. 14, researcher Esben Holm and his team work towards the lofty goal of creating a competent hydrogen-powered vehicle. Esben discusses the challenges present in developing such a car, and the struggles of working with alternative energy engines.
Eugene Khimenko, IT-entrepreneur, in his presentation from PKN Dnipropetrovsk IT::Reality Vol.10, explained what IT-technology is in the broadest sense and dispelled myths and stereotypes about the image and appearance of the modern "IT specialist". Scope of IT-technologies - is a great tool to expand your horizons and to develop opportunities. Everyone knows that who owns the information, owns the world.
