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).

Disabling Labelling

BY ANN HAWKINS
@ VOL 3 ON SEP 22, 2015

"By and large, most people thought it was time for change. And I was going to be part of that change."

In "Disabling Labelling" from PechaKucha Night St. Neots Vol. 3, writer, mentor, and idealist Ann Hawkins passionately talks about equal opportunity and the modern world lessons that she insists we must learn that race, gender, physical ability, sexual orientation, and all the various labels that we are so accustomed to assigning each other, have very little to do with the kind of people we actually are or how effective we can be in the world. "It's time to tidy up our language" she adds referring to limitations labels give us, concluding "we owe it to the next generation."

Feminism and Equity! What are the real issues?

BY JENNIFER AZIH
@ VOL 40 ON MAY 10, 2019

Jennifer Azih addresses general misconceptions about feminism, female genital mutilation, gender-based violence, rape, child marriage, and girl child deprivation of education.

Many people are afraid to be called feminists or even associated with it. This is because the topic has been politicized and many people do not even understand its true meaning.

As a woman, Jennifer would like to educate people on the real issues of feminism that are constantly being neglected.

She thinks that it is important to change people’s perspective and stimulate real support to the feminist movement.

Geodesic Dome Sculptures

Sculptor Nick Sayers began very small. He was fascinated with the sphere, and began creating spheres from objects not ordinarily associated with this three-dimensional shape -- like measuring tape. In today's Presentation of the Day, "Geodesic Dome Sculptures" from PKN Brighton Vol. 18, Nick shows us some of his works, from very small spheres to geodesic domes large enough sit in. His work culminates into a new, grander project: a 120-sided geodesic dome large enough for people to stand in -- all constructed from real estate signs.

Drawing Tells a Better Story

"We are different, but we have something to share, like all of you ... I think the concept of love or empathy is not based on race or color or gender or religion. We all share this amazing feeling."One of the biggest stories in 2015 was the migrant crisis from Syria and parts of the Middle East. Kyoto-based researcher, and Syrian national, Rodi Alkader, has been drawing his thoughts on paper for years, but as the crisis unfolded, his drawings became a profound way for him to deal with his emotions.

MSM students deliver 40th PechaKucha event in Maastricht

  This year seven MBA and Master in Management students took part in the annual PechaKucha event at Maastricht School of Management. They were joined by Oliver Olson who closed the evening with an outstanding PechaKucha improvisation on random slides on a topic chosen selected by the audience. The topic was – If you had to create a country from scratch, what would it look The annual MSM PechaKucha event is a highlight of the year and has become fully integrated into the full-time MBA and Master in Management program. This year again, thanks to the close collaboration with PechaKucha Maastricht, all interested students received a thorough preparation for the event. They first followed a PechaKucha workshop to get acquainted with the special PechaKucha presentation concept of telling a story by using only 20 slides and speaking only 20 seconds per slide. Then they were invited to present and discuss their topic ideas with staff and PechaKucha team members, and finally they were given two possibilities to rehearse and receive feedback on their respective presentation.Thanks to this careful preparation, the quality of the presentations was particularly high and the audience was impressed by the speaking and presentation skills of the presenters. As for the topics of the presentations, it was once again striking to see that many of them touched upon serious and urgent issues such as climate change and gender equality. But also very personal and intimate topics were covered such as, how it is like to live with a critical heart condition or to overcome the scars of cyberbullying. Several presentations fully engaged the audience and ended with calls to action. Others took on a more philosophical approach to life, wisdom and fulfillment throughout diversity and connections.The students put a lot of time and effort in choosing powerful images to illustrate their message and said that they appreciated the value of doing a presentation by speaking and interacting with the audience instead of reading slides.It was an evening full of intense emotions, from nervousness to joy, from indignation to hope, from seriousness to humor, from delight to admiration.The cherry on the cake of the evening was the special greetings from the PechaKucha founders and team in Tokyo, who sent a special video recorded message to celebrate the 40th volume of PechaKucha Maastricht. The video made everyone in the room feel part of the global PechaKucha community of 1047 cities all around the world.
