School visit at Hassi

School visit at Hassi Moumen 25 pupils from Benabdesslem Ahmed School- In Salah- along with their teachers visited Hassi Moumen Site on the 15th of February 2018. The main objective behind the visit was to make pupils aware about ISG values and principles and the various activities conducted at Hassi Moumen. As soon as the group reached Hassi Moumen they went to the CPF control room where they attended the HSE induction followed by a presentation about ISG, its principles, policies and objectives. After that, the group was headed by the Exploitation team who helped them to understand how gas production is carried out. This was followed by questions of the visitors that were guided by the team who provided explanations about the activities and which were axed on the most important topics to make them aware about safety and environment. Guided by the SCM Team Leader, they next visited the airport and the CWAA later where the Environmental Supervisor explained to them ISG practices and commitment towards environment and gave them an overview about segregation and waste management. After this tour, the group went to the Base de Vie for lunch and that’s not all! Before leaving, they visited the gym and took some photos as souvenir. School visits are part of ISG practices to convey our values by contributing into the development of the young visitors potentially that this kind of visits provide the children, tomorrow’s future, with a stimulating ‘real-world’ setting to develop more broad and positive images and attitudes toward society and professional world and offer them a chance to transfer their theoretical knowledge to practical implication. Best of luck to Benabdesslem Ahmed school students with their continued studies! 12

WELLNESS: Healthy Living Being healthy is about what you eat (Part 1): Eating too much meat! There is a direct relationship between your level of physical activity and how much energy you use up from the food you eat. If you eat more than you use, the surplus energy is stored as body fat; this means you will become overweight which in itself increases your risk of disease and disability. Your risks multiply if you smoke, drink alcohol, take very little exercise and eat too much meat. In fact, eating too much meat is a common dietary problem and most people don't realize its health impacts. Why we need to eat meat: While eating too much meat can be dangerous, meat is a good source of complete proteins. Protein is a critical part of our diet—we need it to feel full, have energy, build and repair muscles, blood vessels, hair, skin, nails, process nutrients, and boost immunity, among other vital roles. It's also involved in the production of enzymes and hormones that help the body to function normally. How much protein we need: As a general rule, men aim for 140 grams and women shoot for 110 grams per day, which is more than the recommended daily allowance, but still within safe limits. But what happens when you go overboard? Studies show that: 20 % of people who eat too much meat are more likely to develop cancer, especially if they eat a lot of red meat. Pancreatic cancer, in particular, has been linked to heavy meat consumption. Meat also contains lots of saturated fat and cholesterol, which can lead to heart disease. Kidney damage, renal failure, kidney stones. High dietary protein levels cause the body to excrete more calcium, which can contribute to osteoporosis. Are you eating too much meat: Here are 6 silent signs to know when powering up with protein has gone too far: - You're in a bad mood: Maybe you got into a fight with a friend, a co-worker or a family member or you're anxious about a presentation at work, but if you keep waking up on the wrong side of the bed, you might want to consider if too much protein is to blame. - You've got brain fog: Feeling fatigued as the day rolls on might have you reaching for coffee or push you to nibble on a snack, but it could be the amount of protein in your system that's causing your eyes to glaze over and your thoughts to become incoherent. - You're acting hungry: When too much time passes between meals, you might feel your upper lip curl and your patience run out. You might call it "hungry," but a nutritionist might question whether you've had a few too many grams of protein in your day. - You're gaining weight: It's true that having a high-protein diet can satisfy your hunger, but if you go too far over the side of the pyramid, you might find your scale tipping over, too. Meat often means extra fat and also calories. - You're a little backed up: If you replace too much of your diet with protein, you may be lacking fibre which is important for digestion and regularity. - You're especially thirsty: Another indicator is a constant desire for water. In fact, too much protein can cause mild dehydration as your kidneys are working overtime to remove the excess protein as well as the nitrogen waste from metabolizing the protein. It's important to pay attention to this sign specifically, as kidney stones can also be caused by a high-protein diet. In the next issue, you will read: How to improve your diet. 13
