Je vis dans une pièce. À moins que ce ne soit elle qui vive en moi. Régulièrement quelqu'un vient. Raclement de ferraille, craquement d'os, gémissements rauques, autant de bruits annonçant sa venue à chaque fois. Ses passages sont brefs. Il ne reste pas. Derrière lui, j'entends la porte qui se referme.
Après sept années d'une guerre sanglante contre les légions romaines, Jugurtha mourut en prison, à Rome, vers l'an 104 avant Jésus-Christ. Avec lui s'éteignit la lignée des «Aguellid amokrane», ces grands rois numides qui ont écrit en lettres d'or l'Histoire ancienne de l'Afrique du Nord.
I live in a room. Unless it is the room which lives in me. Regularly somebody comes. Scraping of scrap, crackle of bones, hoarse groans, so many noises announcing his coming every time. His passages are brief. He does not stay. Behind him, I hear the door which closes.
After seven years of a bloody war against the Roman legions, Yugurthen died in prison, in Rome, at about the year 104 before Christ. With him went out the lineage of «Aguellid amokrane», these great kings Numides who wrote in gold letters the ancient History of North Africa.
Written during the black decade of Algeria, this narrative of apprenticeship is freely inspired by a real fact arisen in Kabylia during the childhood of the author. Its electrical wire is the friendship of a child and an eccentric whom some tolerate and whom others would want to send to the asylum. By his side, the child is going to learn to listen to the music of trees and to look at the world with the eyes of the heart. This tale, at the same time naive and grave, invites us to wonder about the cogs of the mechanics of the scapegoat. It is dedicated to all the children of the world who closely or remotely were next to the rejection and to the intolerance.
We don't talk about it and avoid the tension generating subject. Snoring makes us laugh or even cry. We very much want to get rid of it. There are ways to fight it. You will find an inventory of them herein, complete with advice on how to improve them, but that's not all! This book sets forth a natural and original manner of curing snoring and sleep apnea. It's an actively engaging method as opposed to others which confine the snorer to a passive role (drugs, surgery, etc.), proposing exercises by which the snorer strengthens and activates his oral cavity and refines its sensations. Validated by numerous doctors, physical therapists and practitioners of alternative medicine, this book can be read on different levels: by those who are just discovering their snoring problem as well as by those who are well aware of it but haven't yet found a satisfactory solution.

Perfidy,plot,deceit,dissimulation,stinginess are among so many other aspects of this new society,that the author describes and disapproved.
Here I imagine a professor (not unlike myself) getting involved in his old age with a group of radical intellectuals (similar to people I've known but more radical and more productive) by chance and family connections deeply connected with elite hackers and serious players on the Internet. I studied the history of hacking while writing this and imagined a world gone a notch worse than our own...
Hello and welcome to this nice journey, More than anything I want the journey to show how easy and sane humor & fun are, they very often give us relief from the burden of Blessedness and Ugliness. We should laugh at the absurdity of it all. I'm afraid this book does not offer concrete solutions. However, I'm quite sure these nice reflections would help you spotting amazing cases and strange situations whenever you want to laugh at everything, whenever you want some relief, whenever you want humor... It's always worthwhile to wear a smile. All the best, Salma Michele.
Christina sees her life changed, losing everything in her path. She tears between adventure and love. But sees everything recovering over the months that pass.
This is not a fairy tale, but it takes this rather as a second chance. Such as a dressing that is applied.

From the perspective of the international scholarly community under North Atlantic domination, South Africa might look like a peripheral place of knowledge production. In recent years, a plethora of voices calling for provincializing Europe, for deconstructing Eurocentrism and for adopting post- and decolonial perspectives have challenged such views. They have partly transformed the academic landscape, but have had limited success in challenging the fundamental global divides in production, circulation and recognition of social scientific knowledge. This book chooses a different take on the question of how North Atlantic domination could be challenged, by conceptualizing counter-hegemonic currents in international sociology. Instead of providing theoretical and deconstructive critiques, counter-hegemonic currents are effective through collective social scientific practice : the production of data, knowledge and texts, of new generations of scholars, the interaction with extra-university actors, leading to the gradual emergence of integrated and productive scientific communities. Their orientation towards local arenas of discussion and production of socially relevant research effectively reduces the belief in the hegemony of the North.
The historical development of South African labour studies is a case in point. This study provides a systematic, in-depth analysis of research and teaching activities, networks with extra-academic actors and international cooperation over time in the three major Labour Studies centres : Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town. It draws on a rich variety of material, including annual reports of research centres and labour service organizations, teaching contents and exam questions, the 1974-2003 volumes of the «South African Labour Bulletin» and newsletters of ISA Research Committee 44 on Labour Movements. Qualitative analysis of four seminal books is used to assess their contribution to original, general theory-building. In-depth interviews with Labour Studies representatives complement the analysis of documents and literature by reconstructing the oral history of this scholarly community, an indispensable source given that many debates could not appear in written form or had to be watered during the Apartheid years. The study concludes that over time, South African social scientists have generated knowledge on labour, industry and trade unions that is universally comprehensible, but arrogantly local.
Dire que l'apprentissage des langues étrangères doit être culturellement contextualisé revient à enfoncer une porte ouverte. Mais une fois énoncée cette évidence, se posent inévitablement des problèmes de définition et de méthode. Où commence, où cesse l'objet culturel : au « faire » (culture matérielle), au « croire » (culture immatérielle), au « dire » (la langue) ? Quels modèles, quelles théories solliciter pour repérer et sélectionner les faits culturels ? Parler une langue suppose de recourir aux éléments nécessaires à la communication et de maîtriser les références qui habitent la mémoire culturelle de la population désignée. Tout message doit être émis et perçu adéquatement, notamment à partir d'un savoir collectif (mythes fondateurs, croyances, représentations explicites et implicites...) qui se transmet de génération en génération et alimente les jugements des locuteurs, leurs façons de s'approprier le monde et d'interpréter l'altérité.

The independent Annual Growth Survey (iAGS) provides, as a counterpoint to the Annual Growth Survey of the European Commission, an independent assessment of the economic situation of the European Union by three European economic institutes: OFCE (Paris), IMK (Düsseldorf) and ECLM (Copenhagen).
Despite some positive signs, the iAGS 2014 report argues that the European economic crisis is far from over. The policies conducted so far, in particular fiscal austerity, have failed and European countries still pay the price of this failure.
Imbalances have not been solved but only displaced, from current account to unemployment, from public deficit to inequalities and poverty. iAGS 2014 spells out an alternative strategy. First, backloading fiscal consolidation is still an option but this reversal in the stance of fiscal policy also requires the ECB to reduce substantially the sovereign spreads that still exist inside the euro area. Second, it is time to invest in the future. Higher public investment would substantially boost GDP and reduce unemployment. Thirdly, rising poverty and inequalities must be fought. Finally, wage deflation has to be addressed directly. A minimum wage norm across the EU would be a brake to deflation. It would be a powerful tool for re-balancing in the medium term the current account positions in a symmetrical way.

Pierrot a connu plusieurs vies professionnelles, souvent précaires, parfois heureuses. Malheureusement, il souffre d'une santé fragile qui perturbe souvent ses expériences, l'obligeant même à quitter certains emplois.
Arrivé à une quarantaine d'années, il s'investit corps et âme dans la gestion de l'Amusant Musée créé par son père à la retraite, qui fait revivre des vieux jouets de toutes sortes et, par lui, son pendant sur internet. Grâce aux visites guidées qu'il y organise, il fera une rencontre qui démarrera par un travail commun dans un premier temps et évoluera vers une relation qui changera sa vision du monde du tout au tout.
Dans Ma plume à Pierrot, comme dans My Pen for Pierrot, version américanisée traduite en binôme grâce à Paris Alexander Walker, Damien siobuD nous offre le témoignage d'une amitié plus forte que les barrières du handicap qui ne pourra que toucher le lecteur.
La guerra civil iniciada en 1868 en la provincia de Cuba, no es un capítulo tan glorioso en la historia de España como se ha querido hacer creer de un lado y de otro del Atlántico.
Tampoco es tan conocido como se suele pensar.
Por el lado insular pueden comprenderse los burdos intentos de reescritura que pueblan los libros de texto, y que han contribuido a deformar la percepción que tienen de sí mismas varias generaciones de españoles de Cuba. Pero por la parte peninsular la historia no ha ido mejor encaminada, porque ¿no son acaso los gobiernos que se han sucedido desde la muerte de Fernando VII a quienes incumbe la responsabilidad de la pérdida de las provincias ultramarinas?
Es por tanto, mucho más cómodo, intentar hacer tabla rasa de un pasado -con el riesgo que comporta la repetición de la historia -, que la de señalar a los verdaderos responsables. No vaya a ser que desenredando la madeja se descubra que son los mismos que todavía tiran de los hilos del Estado español.
