Hospital Tjongerschans in Heerenveen wants to give woman with breast cancer something extra. A plaster print of both breasts prior to operations. One in eight woman deals with breast cancer. When the disease is found in an early stage, the treatment can be limited to a breast saving surgery. But when it's more agressive it takes more to treat it. Cast master Baukje Oosterkamp has been doing her job for thirty years and does it with a lot of passion. She makes the prints, which takes about an hour. In a later stage the prints can be used to help make a breast prosthesis. The print is extremely detailed until a millimeter.

While playing they discover their talent and get to know the world of durability, energy and technique.The provinces Friesland, Groningen, Drenthe, Gelderland and Noord-Holland are fighting for the next few months to find out which school can save the most energy.
Edwin Pietersma Training & Advice is a business specialised in giving lessons and updating people's knowledge about BHV, EHBO, Reanimation and AED. Lately it has shown that a lot of AED devices don't work because of minimal maintenance. The Netherlands has between 60.000 and 80.000 AED devices of which only 10.000 are registert. Mr. Pietersma tells us why AED devices and good knowledge of their use can be very important and why it's important to always be within minutes reach of a device.
