Conna tre son cerveau pour mieux manger
Pourquoi faut-il connaître son cerveau pour mieux manger ? D’abord, parce que nous pouvons alors le nourrir convenablement. Tout ce dont il a besoin pour bien se développer et fonctionner existe dans notre assiette. Du gras notamment : cholestérol, oméga-3 et autres acides gras composent toutes les structures cérébrales, des neurones aux vaisseaux sanguins. Ne nous en privons donc pas ! Ensuite, savoir comment le cerveau fonctionne permet d’éviter les pièges du marketing alimentaire... Nous sommes souvent trompés en matière de nutrition car nous jugeons ce qui est bon ou mauvais selon nos connaissances, notre culture, voire ce que notre voisin fait... Autre raison : vous souhaitez perdre quelques kilos et tentez le nouveau régime de l’été. Vous maigrirez vite au début... mais aurez tout repris quelques mois plus tard car votre cerveau va tout faire pour reconstituer vos réserves de graisse. Le comprendre est le meilleur moyen pour garder ou pour retrouver votre poids de forme. Enfin, dans le cerveau, se trouve la clé du plaisir. Et manger, ce n’est pas seulement se nourrir. La convivialité et les instants de bonheur qui l’accompagnent améliorent notre santé mentale. Écrit par des spécialistes de diverses disciplines scientifiques, ce livre est un recueil d'articles parus dans la revue Cerveau & Psycho. Il arrive à point nommé au moment où beaucoup d’informations « pseudo-diététiques » circulent, la plupart ne reposant pas sur de véritables connaissances scientifiques.
Less Doing More Living
"Less is more"—or, more specifically, the less you have to do, the more life you have to live. Efficiency expert Ari Meisel details his "Less Doing" philosophy, which will streamline your life, and make everything easier. In business and our personal lives, it often seems as if the only way to get more done is by putting in more time—more hours at the office, more days running errands. But what if there were a way that we could do less, and free up more time for the things and people we love?

In Less Doing, More Living, Meisel explores the fundamental principles of his “Less Doing” philosophy, educating the reader on: Optimizing workflow with twenty-first-century apps and tools Creating an “external brain” in the Cloud to do all of your “lower” thinking—like keeping track of appointments, meetings, and ideas How to use technology to live a paper-free life The three fundamentals of wellness—fitness, sleep, and nutrition—and technological approaches to improving these areas of life And so much more! This book will give readers new tools and techniques for streamlining their workload, being more efficient in their day-to-day activities, and making everything in life easier.
William Shakespeare was born at Stratford-on-Avon, in a house under the tiles of which was concealed a profession of the Catholic faith beginning with these words, "I, John Shakespeare." John was the father of William. The house, situate in Henley Street, was humble; the chamber in which Shakespeare came into the world, wretched,—the walls whitewashed, the black rafters laid crosswise; at the farther end a tolerably large window with two small panes, where you may read to-day, among other names, that of Walter Scott. This poor lodging sheltered a decayed family. The father of William Shakespeare had been alderman; his grand-father had been bailiff. Shakespeare signifies "shake-lance;" the family had for coat-of-arms an arm holding a lance,—allusive arms, which were confirmed, they say, by Queen Elizabeth in 1595, and apparent, at the time we write, on Shakespeare's tomb in the church of Stratford-on-Avon. There is little agreement on the orthography of the word Shake-speare, as a family name; it is written variously,—Shakspere, Shakespere, Shakespeare, Shakspeare. In the eighteenth century it was habitually written Shakespear; the actual translator has adopted the spelling Shakespeare, as the only true method, and gives for it unanswerable reasons. The only objection that can be made is that Shakspeare is more easily pronounced than Shakespeare, that cutting off the e mute is perhaps useful, and that for their own sake, and in the interests of literary currency, posterity has, as regards surnames, a claim to euphony. It is evident, for example, that in French poetry the orthography Shakspeare is necessary. However, in prose, and convinced by the translator, we write Shakespeare. 2. The Shakespeare family had some original draw-back, probably its Catholicism, which caused it to fall. A little after the birth of William, Alderman Shakespeare was no more than "butcher John." William Shakespeare made his début in a slaughter-house. At fifteen years of age, with sleeves tucked up, in his father's shambles, he killed the sheep and calves "pompously," says Aubrey. At eighteen he married. Between the days of the slaughter-house and the marriage he composed a quatrain. This quatrain, directed against the neighbouring villages, is his début in poetry. He there says that Hillbrough is illustrious for its ghosts and Bidford for its drunken fellows. He made this quatrain (being tipsy himself), in the open air, under an apple-tree still celebrated in the country in consequence of this Midsummer Night's Dream. In this night and in this dream where there were lads and lasses, in this drunken fit, and under this apple-tree, he discovered that Anne Hathaway was a pretty girl. The wedding followed. He espoused this Anne Hathaway, older than himself by eight years, had a daughter by her, then twins, boy and girl, and left her; and this wife, vanished from Shakespeare's life, appears again only in his will, where he leaves her the worst of his two beds, "having probably," says a biographer, "employed the best with others." Shakespeare, like La Fontaine, did but sip at a married life. His wife put aside, he was a schoolmaster, then clerk to an attorney, then a poacher. This poaching has been made use of since then to justify the statement that Shakespeare had been a thief. One day he was caught poaching in Sir Thomas Lucy's park. They threw him in prison; they commenced proceedings. These being spitefully followed up, he saved himself by flight to London. In order to gain a livelihood, he sought to take care of horses at the doors of the theatres. Plautus had turned a millstone. This business of taking care of horses at the doors existed in London in the last century, and it formed then a kind of small band or corps that they called "Shakespeare's boys."
Les lipides nutrition et sant
Les substances lipidiques ont longtemps été négligées par les physiologistes, mais des recherches épidémiologiques les ont récemment portées sur le devant de la scène, notamment au travers de leur intérêt dans les domaines de la nutrition et surtout de la santé chez l’Homme. Outre leur importance énergétique, les lipides interviennent dans de nombreux mécanismes cellulaires dont les dérèglements peuvent conduire à des pathologies parfois graves. En effet, en plus de leur impact sur les maladies métaboliques, les systèmes cardiovasculaire et immunitaire et les processus de cancérisation, le système nerveux central peut lui aussi être altéré à des degrés divers par une carence ou un déséquilibre entre les constituants lipidiques ingérés. Après quelques rappels historiques sur la découverte des lipides et leur utilisation, une première partie décrit les principaux lipides présents dans notre ration alimentaire. Puis, les besoins avérés ou éventuels de l’Homme en divers acides gras, stérols et vitamines appartenant au groupe des lipides, sont passés en revue. Enfin, l’impact des principaux lipides sur des pathologies naguère encore peu explorées sous cet aspect est exposé en détail. Les lipides – Nutrition et santé présente, de façon synthétique, un très large panorama de toutes les facettes des lipides, des acides gras aux corps gras les moins abondants, mais tout aussi importants pour l’équilibre de notre organisme. Il permet aux spécialistes de revisiter les principales sources de lipides présentes dans notre alimentation en insistant sur leur production et leur composition. Cet ouvrage s’adresse aux chercheurs, médecins généralistes et spécialistes, diététiciens et étudiants évoluant dans de nombreux domaines tels que la biologie cellulaire, la nutrition ou encore la pharmacologie.
Les Misrables Victor Hugo
Many of the characters are well-known: Valjean, the criminal trying to escape his reputation; Javert, the police agent trailing him; the unfortunate Fantine and her daughter, Cosette; the rascally Thenardier; and above all the splendid street urchin, Gavroche. Among the unforgettable descriptions are those of the Paris sewers, the battle of Waterloo and the fighting at the barricades during the July Revolution. There are few more complete, or more vivid, pictures of France at the beginning of the nineteenth century. LES MISERABLES is at once a thrilling narrative and a social document embracing a wider field than any other novel of its time. This edition is an abridgment of Norman Denny's translation.
Getting Organized in the Google Era
Whether it's a faulty memory, a tendency to multitask, or difficulty managing our time, every one of us has limitations conspiring to keep us from being organized. But, as organizational guru and former Google CIO Douglas C. Merrill points out, it isn't our fault. Our brains simply aren't designed to deal with the pressures and competing demands on our attention in today's fast-paced, information-saturated, digital world. What's more, he says, many of the ways in which our society is structured are outdated, imposing additional chaos that makes us feel stressed, scattered, and disorganized. But it doesn't have to be this way. Luckily, we have a myriad of amazing new digital tools and technologies at our fingertips to help us manage the strains on our brains and on our lives; the trick is knowing when and how to use them. This is why Merrill, who helped spearhead Google's effort to "organize the world's information," offers a wealth of tips and strategies for how to use these new tools to become more organized, efficient, and successful than ever. But if you're looking for traditional, rigid, one-size-fits-all strategies for organization, this isn't the book for you. Instead, Merrill draws on his intimate knowledge of how the brain works to help us develop fresh, innovative, and flexible systems of organization tailored to our individual goals, constraints, and lifestyles. From how to harness the amazing power of search, to how to get the most out of cloud computing, to techniques for filtering through the enormous avalanche of information that assaults us at every turn, to tips for minimizing distractions and better integrating work and life, Getting Organized in the Google Era is chock-full of practical, invaluable, and often counterintuitive advice for anyone who wants to be more organized and productive–and less stressed--in our 21st-century world. From the Hardcover edition.

Foods That Fight Cancer
Foods That Fight Cancer was originally published in 2005 and sold over 200,000 copies in Quebec alone. It was translated into 25 languages, and sold an additional 450,000 copies worldwide. A decade has passed during which an enormous amount of conclusive scientific evidence has shown how some foods contain cancer-fighting elements. In fact, approximately one third of all cancers are directly related to diet. Every week there is a news story about a food that prevents cancer -- and it often contradicts last week's news. Foods That Fight Cancer cuts through the noise. It explains the science behind each food recommendation and its statistical potential for disease prevention. It itemizes which foods are the most effective against specific cancers and explains how they work. By understanding the science behind the therapeutic benefits of these foods, we come to realize why it is so critical -- and easy -- to bolster our body's defenses against cancer just by adding cancer-fighting foods to our diet. Here are examples of cancer-preventing foods: Curcumin may have the greatest positive impact in preventing colon cancer. Add one teaspoon of turmeric to soups, salad dressings, or pasta dishes every day. Freshly crushed garlic is by far the best source of anti-cancer compounds. Supplements have little or no effect in the fight against cancer. Fresh food is the only weapon. Nothing can guarantee a cancer-free future but we can improve the odds by a great margin. Foods That Fight Cancer is a powerful tool in that battle.
