Devenir entomovores et déguster des insectes comestiblesInsectes Comestibles – Entomovores : manger des insectes Les insectes c’est plus de 2.000 espèces comestibles, toutes potentiellement intéressantes d’un point de vue nutritionnel. D’une part pour leur teneur en protéines de bonne qualité, d’autre part pour les divers nutriments, vitamines, minéraux et oligo-éléments qu’ils contiennent. Les insectes comestibles peuvent être une importante source de protéines. Ils sont en effet nutritivement équivalents aux autres aliments protéinés tout en ayant des spécificités qui les rendent bien plus attrayants. Premièrement, les insectes contiennent au moins autant de protéines que les autres viandes et sont tout aussi riches en acides aminés essentiels (que notre corps ne peut produire par lui-même) propres aux produits carnés. Il faut aussi dire que la production de protéines d’insectes a un impact très faible sur l’environnement par rapport aux autres protéines d’origine animale. - rapidité du cycle de reproduction des insectes Les taux en lipides sont très variables en fonction des insectes considérés.

Maslow's hierarchy of needs Maslow's hierarchy of needs, represented as a pyramid with the more basic needs at the bottom[1] Maslow's hierarchy of needs is a theory in psychology proposed by Abraham Maslow in his 1943 paper "A Theory of Human Motivation" in Psychological Review.[2] Maslow subsequently extended the idea to include his observations of humans' innate curiosity. His theories parallel many other theories of human developmental psychology, some of which focus on describing the stages of growth in humans. Maslow used the terms "physiological", "safety", "belongingness" and "love", "esteem", "self-actualization", and "self-transcendence" to describe the pattern that human motivations generally move through. Maslow's theory was fully expressed in his 1954 book Motivation and Personality.[5] The hierarchy remains a very popular framework in sociology research, management training[6] and secondary and higher psychology instruction.

While groundbreaking ideas such as quantum theory, relativity and even the Earth going around the Sun might be commonly accepted now, science still continues to show that the universe contains things you might find it difficult to believe, and even more difficult to get your head around. Theoretically, the lowest temperature that can be achieved is absolute zero, exactly ? One of the properties of a negative-energy vacuum is that light actually travels faster in it than it does in a normal vacuum, something that may one day allow people to travel faster than the speed of light in a kind of negative-energy vacuum bubble. One prediction of Einstein’s theory of general relativity is that when a large object moves, it drags the space-time around it, causing nearby objects to be pulled along as well. Relativity of Simultaneity Since this extra dimension is so small, only tiny objects, such as particles, can move along it. Antimatter Retrocausality

LifeCycles Project Society What is the pollination cycle and how does it work? Pollination is the transfer of male pollen grains to the female stigma in flowers of the same species. This transfer is primarily carried out by animals traveling around flower blossoms - pollen grains stick to their bodies. When pollen from one plant is deposited onto a plant of the same species, fertilization occurs and the fruit, nut, or seed will form. Flies, beetles, butterflies, and other animals offer a small amount of pollination to local blossoms - it is the bee population that accomplishes the highest pollination rate! This is largely because of the specially modified hairs that bees have on their bodies. How Bees Pollinate Pollination begins when a bees stops to gather food from a flower. What happens if pollination doesn't occur? When pollinated, a fertilized flower will produce full-bodied fruit containing regenerative seeds. - Learn more about the Pollination Cycle

The Coming Food Printer Revolution Would you buy a product that was advertised as “Naturally grown, completely organic, printed food?” Anyone who has an apple tree growing in their yard knows how difficult it is to grow one that is worthy of eating straight off the tree. Most have bruises, wormholes, or bird damage that leaves most apples somewhat marginalized. As we shop for apples in the grocery store, we find ourselves looking for the “perfect apple.” But what if we could take all of those bruised and damaged apples and turn them all into “perfect apples” – perfect size, perfect color, perfect crunch when we bite into them, and the perfect sweet juicy flavor and aroma that makes our mouth water every time we think about them. This is the promise of food printer technology as we move from simply printing ink on paper, to 3D printing of parts and objects, to next generation food printers. These aren’t the artificial food devices that science fiction movies have been promising. Consider the Possibilities The Virtuoso Mixer

vertical theory: farming in urban environments processing[04] = "les quatre concepts fondamentaux de la programmation" ; - Ecole d Bon, d’accord, admettons-le : l’idée qu’il y aurait uniquement quatre concepts clés pour maîtriser la programmation est une idée absurde. Pour tout dire, je voulais juste faire un clin d’oeil à Lacan ;-) En plus, il ne s’agit pas (au moins philosophiquement parlant) de « concepts », mais plutôt de ce que nous devrions probablement nommer des « techniques ». C’est précisement cet abus du terme de « concept » que Deleuze et Guattari ont pointé dans leur glorieuse passage de Qu’est-ce que la philosophie : Le fond de la honte fut atteint quand l’informatique, le marketing, le design, la publicité, toutes les disciplines de la communication, s’emparèrent du mot concept lui-même, et dirent : c’est notre affaire, c’est nous les créatifs, nous sommes les concepteurs ! Mais nous voila déjà très éloignés de notre sujet de départ et la raison pour laquelle vous lisez ce cours : comment mettre en pratique ces concepts/techniques/formes pour créer des œuvres ?
