Le site de la semaine : Visual Culture

Visual Culture est un blog rédigé par les membres du studio graphique Oberholtzer Creative.

Une bonne source d'information, d'autant plus que la ligne éditoriale du blog est relativement large : des sélection de livres, des appels à participation et de nombreuses autres ressources à découvrir, notamment sur l'identité visuelle.

Parmis les articles que j'ai aimé un guide sur la sérigraphie, une étude des logotypes des compagnies aériennes ou encore une sélection de posters de football des différentes coupe du monde.

    I think that finding a conodm in your husbands car would be a definite troubling sign of cheating. He better have a really good explanation for why he would have a conodm there, especially if he is not using them with you. For Cindy above who found the personal lubricant in her husbands car I would think by itself that this means he may just be playing with his thing. (hopefully) However, when you include finding enhancers it could be much more serious. I didn't know what enhancers were until searching google just now. Turns out these are also known as poppers. Many gays use poppers to enhance their sex!?! Do you think your husband could have homosexual tendencies? I would start asking some serious questions because finding lubricant and enhancers may be an indication of him cheating on you with other men! (gay sex) As you know do to the risks of HIV and Aids this could be life threatening for you! I don't mean to alarm you just want you to know the potential risks of having sex with a man engaged in these types of sexual habits. I wish you the best!

    You can get what's called a Duo test at 4 weeks after pnioatetl exposure. This test looks for both antibodies and antigens. The standard antibody-only test has a window period of 12 weeks and it's recommended you go back to confirm the result at that time. However, the duo test is highly accurate (around 98%) and it's unlikely the result would change. American guidelines state 6 months, however this would only be necessary if you have some kind of autoimmune disorder. If you have an autoimmune disorder it is something you would be aware of so for the vast majority of people an accurate result can be found at 12 weeks and a very good indication at 4 weeks.If you always use condoms and if you understand how HIV is transmitted and practice safe sex you will not be at risk of HIV infection. This fear you have of HIV transmission indicates that perhaps it would be useful to talk with a health adviser or counsellor to help you learn to control this anxiety. You really won't be at risk if you know how to protect yourself.

    , the news isn't all rosy in the health stkeas. We all know the stats: our skin cancer rates are high OK, the highest. Rates of breast and colon cancer are right up there too. But even this bad news has an upside: our cancer survival rates are also some of the highest in the world.Yep, we might be living in self-imposed exile, but we're doing alright. There are heaps of reasons why being Kiwi is good for our wellbeing. Here, how to work it to your advantage..Seafood: Eat ItOne of the best things about living on an island or even better, straddling two of them is that we're surrounded by nature's nutritional over-achievers: fish. We're blessed to have nice oily fish in New Zealand, and salmon is the trophy. It's amazing brain food, says Marco Kouch, co-owner of Crown Oven Smoked Salmon. Experts have been banging on about omega-3 s brain boosting, heart-healthy benefits for ages now, but did you know that New Zealand salmon boasts even more of the good stuff? A variety in New Zealand, Chinook, found in the clear waters of the South Island, packs nine per cent 0mega-3 oils per 100g compared with most overseas salmon which only contains up to seven per cent, says Kouch. Maybe that's the reason Kiwis are so happy researchers at Finland's University of Kuopio have found that eating fish also makes you 31 per cent less likely to suffer from depression.But what's fush without chups? Unthinkable, clearly: a 2006 study found 97 per cent of Kiwis eat spuds and 54 per cent of us eat them more than four times a week. Potatoes are part of our heritage and culture, and they grow readily here, says Tauranga-based food and education consultant, Glenda Gourley.Score health points todayReel in that omega-3 goodness by eating fatty fish at least twice a week. Don't like fish? Try omega-3 supplements but make sure they haven't been sitting on shelves for ages. The older the oil, the more likely it is to be oxidised (and therefore no use to you). Choose a product with a manufacture or packed on date that's less than a year old. No need to shun the spud either: NZ's 2003 Crop and Food Research shows a standard-size potato contains nearly half your daily requirement of vitamin C. Look out for potatoes that have yellow, orange or purple pigments as they have higher antioxidant levels than regular white ones, says nutritionist Angela Berrill. The Maori potato has the highest antioxidant levels because of the deep purple colour, (from the anthocyanins, since you ask). Berrill also has some advice for preparing the tater: don't. Leave the skin on for maximum fibre and antioxidant content. Steaming or microwaving potatoes will retain most of their goodness, but if you really want chips, here's our tip: cutting them thicker will reduce the fat content. And the best oil to use? Grapeseed it has the lowest saturated fat levels of any oil.We've got ballsAnyone who's kicked tumbleweed down Queen Street the day after one of those All Blacks matches will tell you we've got a bit of a thing for rugby. But Diana O'Neill, Sport and Recreation's (SPARC) senior advisor on health, reckons we like some other sports too. Who knew? We don't do too badly as a nation with getting physical, she says, pointing to a Ministry of Health survey, which reveals that half of Kiwi adults do 30 minutes of activity every day, five times a week or more. It's quite a good result internationally, she says with typical Kiwi understatement (for example, one in five Australians fail to walk for even 10 continuous minutes in a week).For most of us (1,157,600 women), that activity is walking. But there's another group who love nothing more than to leap off tall buildings, bridges, cliffs Yep, AJ wasn't at the end of his expandable string when he invented the bungy he knew how alive you feel when you think you might die.This feeling of aliveness is better known as adrenaline. And its link to wellbeing is more than anecdotal. Researchers at Texas A&M University in the US found that extreme sports burn through your stores of adrenaline-producing cortisol and epinephrine more than any other activity. Regularly doing extreme sports means your body gets used to these stress hormones and can shrug off situations that would normally make blood pressure soar. So, you can laugh in the face of your overflowing inbox. And Nyahaha! you can chuckle in the face of a stroke too a 2003 study in the medical journal, Stroke, found that people with the highest stress levels had twice the risk of a fatal stroke compared with those who said they were stress-free.

  • Bonsoir Kerbillette,Il y a en fait assez peu de commerces dans cette cour, il me semble en fait qu’à part la Brûlerie de Café et 2, 3 autres boutiques il y a surtout des bureaux. L’entrée du côté de la place de la Bastille est assez discrète du coup il y a très peu de passage, quand j’y passe j’y croise 5, 6 personnes maximum (touristes, habitants ou personnes travaillant dans ce cadre agréable). La Brûlerie de Café a une terrasse toute petite, la dernière fois que j’ai voulu y aller il n’y avait plus de place.
