Les Inuits ne trouvent pas ça extrême - Michèle THERRIEN (video)

L'histoire de l'exploration, la géographique classique et une certaine ethnographie ont contribué à transformer l'Arctique en lieu emblématique de « l'extrême ». Il serait plus juste de considérer que les Inuit de l'Alaska, de l'Arctique canadien et du Groenland vivent dans un milieu exigeant, soumis à de constants changements climatiques. Face à l'imprévisibilité, un système de connaissance ouvert et des mécanismes d'ajustement ont permis à ces sociétés originaires de la Si

La chirurgie en temps de guerre - Jacques HUMEAU (video)

Depuis 1945, les conflits armés ont perdu leur caractère conventionnel. Les combats n'opposent plus seulement des armées nationales sur un front délimité. Les attentats terroristes frappent indifféremment les militaires et les populations civiles. La chirurgie en temps de guerre se confond maintenant avec la chirurgie humanitaire. Les chirurgiens interviennent dans des situations d'exception marquées par l'urgence et la pénurie.

La sauvegarde de la vie en mer : aujourd'hui et dans l'avenir - Yves LAGANE (video)

La planète bleue est un univers merveilleux et passionnant lorsqu'on le pratique avec humilité et que l'on fait l'effort de l'apprendre. Ce milieu reste néanmoins délicat, voire hostile et dangereux pour l'homme, nous en avons des exemples tous les jours. On pense bien sûr à quelques noms qui ont fait la une dans le passé ou plus récemment comme « TITANIC », « ESTONIA », « AMOCO CADIZ », « ERIKA » ou « PRESTIGE ». Les premiers rappellent des naufrages dramatiques qui ont en

When spending hurts
You’d think that creating a more equitable distribution of wealth would curb the urge to spend on status symbols – be they designer handbags or flat-screen TVs – as the “have-nots” try to keep up with the Jones.” But new marketing consumer research shows that the people will pay the price to stand out, even if they can’t afford it.
