Culture of sport in Germany

Culture of sport in Germany

I have noticed many differences between France and Germany about the culture of sport and, indeed, the physical appearance. I have the impression that men are more challenged about their bodies, and advertising are everywhere to remind them it.

There is an important difference about the “sport place offers” between France and Germany. Here, they have the McFit concept. It’s a cheap fitness centre (19,90 € per month) where people can come as much as they want and at every hours and days. I have tried it and the quality was good! There were a lot of space, machines, and it was clean. It’s an offer which is extend in every city of Germany because there is a McFit fitness centre in every big and middle size city. I have realized that guys were a lot challenged for them body image when I have saw that they represented 90% of the people in the Mcfit fitness centre of Zwickau.

I also noticed a sort of “body challenge” by the social network accounts of some of my friends in the University. Many of them share their “body evolution”, especially by Instagram, and they are a bit addict to body-building. When I speak about “addiction”, it means 2 hours of body-building exercises per day.

The University purpose many sports courses like: ladyfit, Yoga, body attack, Pilate… And also, to join sports team: basketball, badminton, football… I thought that it would be a great way to meet new people so I decided to join the basketball team and participated in Yoga and ladyfit. The courses are taught by “students trainers”.

Basketball was nice but a bit complicated because we were only two girls in a[...]

BackgroundSurgical approaches in neck dissection: comparing functional, oncologic and aesthetic aspects of transverse cervicotomy to Paul André’s approach.MethodsThis single-center retrospective study compares a new transverse incision for cervicotomy to the classical approach described by Paul André in neck dissections. The evaluation criteria were: number of lymph nodes analyzed, operative time, complications, patient satisfaction and aesthetic aspects of the scar.ResultsA total of 34 patients were included in this study, from September 2009 until January 2015. The number of lymph nodes analyzed is not affected by this new approach compared to the classical one (P=0.9). The scar has a significantly more discreet appearance in the transverse cervicotomy group (P=0.023) likewise; patient satisfaction is higher in this group (P=0.006).ConclusionsAesthetic and functional impairment can be reduced using this new transverse cervical approach hidden in the natural creases of the neck described by Langer.

BackgroundCandida species is the fourth common cause of blood stream infections all over the world which is life threatening. Invasive candidiasis leads to increased mortality and morbidity especially in immunosuppressed. The antifungal resistance pattern in high-risk patients is major concern.PurposeThe present study was to access the anticandidal activity of leaves, bark and seeds of Cassia fistula against fluconazole resistant Candida species, C.albicans, C.glabrata, C.krusei, C.tropicalis, C. kefyr and C.parapsilosis isolated from HIV patients. The predominant phytochemical component responsible for fungicidal activity was to be accessed.Material and methodsEthanol, chloroform, petroleum ether and aqueous extracts of leaves, bark and seeds of C.fistula linn. was evaluated against Microbial type culture collection (MTCC) Candida strains and 21 fluconazole resistant clinical isolates. Antifungal activity was evaluated by agar diffusion and broth dilution techniques. The active phytochemical component present in the ethanol extract of seeds was accessed by high performance thin layer chromatography. The docking study was done with lanosterol 14-alpha demethylase, the azole drug target with the predominant phytochemical from the extract having antifungal activity.ResultsAll the extracts of C.fistula showed excellent anticandidal activity. Ethanol extract of C.fistula seed exhibited the most inhibitory activity. C.krusei and C.parapsilosis were the most inhibited and C.kefyr was the least inhibited species. The predominant phytochemical active component of the ethanol extract of seed was gallic acid. Gallic acid showed excellent binding with lanosterol 14-alpha demethylase.ConclusionThe present study reports the antifungal activity of various extracts of Cassia fistula for the first time against fluconazole resistant Candida isolates. We can conclude that the polyphenolic compound gallic acid is a potent natu[...]
