problème obésité : Persuasive Games -Fatworld (laura philippe) Fatworld is a game about the politics of nutrition. It explores the relationships between obesity, nutrition, and socioeconomics in the contemporary U.S. Fit or Fat? In the last two decades, obesity has soared in the United States. Public and private organizations have mounted ongoing efforts to change Americans’ behavior toward nutrition and exercise. More importantly, these efforts assume that our obesity crisis is caused solely by lack of self-control: if only everyone would choose to eat right and exercise, the problem would go away. Fatworld is a videogame about the politics of nutrition. Existing approaches to nutrition advocacy fail to communicate the aggregate effect of everyday health practices. You can choose starting weights and health conditions, including predispositions towards ailments like diabetes, heart disease, or food allergies. Interested in politics?

El sexo de la levadura Estas levaduras expresan espontáneamente (azarosamente) genes de proteínas fluorescentes de distintos colores, mostrando el efecto del ruido molecular sobre la expresión génica. La levadura vive como un hongo porque lo es, y contra lo que podría suponerse, su vida sexual resulta de lo más variada. En ocasiones desecha toda propuesta del sexo opuesto, por más estímulos que reciba. A pesar, de que sus pretendientes despidan al ambiente una irresistible feromona para seducirla, ella opta por reproducirse asexualmente, es decir, dividirse en dos. Pero, en sus células hijas, transmite la información de cómo aparearse. Ellas heredan esta memoria celular y, demostrarlo, fue un trabajo conjunto realizado por científicos de la Universidad de Stanford (Estados Unidos), de Tartu (Estonia), y de Buenos Aires (Argentina), que resultó publicado en la prestigiosa revista Cell. Cada segundo las células reciben estímulos y no siempre responden del mismo modo. (De izq. a der.)

Application for Financial Communication In an e-sourcing and e-procurement system, the stakeholders require a deep understanding of the regulatory environment and a significant experience in B2B clients’ special expectations. Similar ERP solutions (SAP, Oracle) had limited benefit in adaptation and use among the employees, which resulted in a low ROI. Due to this fact and experience, we focused on the following positive features: quick system launching to any company (1-2 weeks); easy use of the solution; short but understandable communication to employees and overloaded financial managers, who rather review eye-catching graphic illustrations than long explanations. This complex system can also be used comfortably anywhere from Hawaii to Moscow, on any emerging platform, e.g., smart phones and tablets, meeting the time requirements and lifestyle demands of executives and specialists.
