Richard Benyon MP is Unfit for DEFRA

Shaughan Dolan | Posted July 27, 2012

I'm a big believer of it's not where you're from, it's what you do that matters. Richard Benyon is one of the richest landowners in Berkshire, the great, great, great grandson of a former Prime Minister Lord Salisbury and lives in a Tudor Mansion. He is firmly in the 1%...

Para superar la Apnea del Sueño: Bajo nivel de sal en la sangre afecta el sueño. Llamado a una (profunda) investigación

Antonio García | Posted July 27, 2012

Un amanecer, hace 15 años, desperté asfixiándome. Días después soñé que me ahogaba y desperté buscando aire. Pronto observé que a veces despertaba sin reflejo respiratorio: tenía que hacer un esfuerzo voluntario para respirar.

El médico diagnosticó Apnea No Obstructiva (NOSA) o Central. "Central" porque es síntoma de una enfermedad...

Let's Slam the Door on Private Prisons Once and for All

Lawrence Benito | Posted July 26, 2012

Illinois faces a crucial decision: Do we allow a notoriously irresponsible company like the Corrections Corporation of America (CCA) into our state, or do we send them a clear message that Illinois is not Arizona by passing Senate Bill 1064? SB 1064 would block state and local government...

Working at Zellers Taught Me Everything I Know

Larry Leach | Posted July 26, 2012

With the sale of Zellers by HBC to Target, and many Zellers stores winding down business, many memories of my first job came back to me.

Sometimes you don't realize where you learn certain lessons until something like this jogs your memory. I remember my manager teaching me...

Pourquoi toutes les PMEs devraient aussi se doter d'un conseil d'administration

Estelle Metayer | Posted July 26, 2012

Il n'existe que très peu de recherches faites sur les pratiques des PMEs en termes de gouvernance corporative et du rôle de leur conseil d'administration - lorsque celui-ci existe. Presque tous les codes s'adressent aux entreprises cotées, et ce n'est que très récemment que le débat se déplace peu à...

Université: les travaux continuent

Laurent Batsch | Posted July 26, 2012

De toutes les réformes de structure des dernières années, celle de l'enseignement supérieur restera comme une des plus profondes, alors qu'elle était donnée comme la plus improbable. Elle dessine aussi des lignes futures d'évolution.

  1. Plus d'autonomie pour les établissements, pas moins. Parce qu'il faut faire confiance aux collectifs de travail,...

Mon dernier Roland-Garros

Arnaud Clément | Posted July 26, 2012

La passion du jeu ne m'a jamais quitté, même après ces 17 ans passés sur le circuit professionnel... Mais ces derniers temps, mon classement a baissé. Jouer sur le circuit secondaire ne m'a jamais posé de problème d'ego, je dois tout de même avouer ressentir une petite lassitude due au...

Culture et numérique: au-delà d'Hadopi

Gaël Maupilé | Posted July 26, 2012

Les sorties remarquées et peu coordonnées d'Aurélie Filippetti (ministre de la culture) et de Fleur Pellerin (déléguée à l'économie numérique) sur le calendrier de la "grande concertation pour le financement de la création à l'ère du numérique" appellent un sentiment contrasté.

Palmes de Cannes: l'art délicat du pronostic

Aurélien Le Genissel | Posted July 26, 2012

Voilà, c'est mon dernier jour au festival de Cannes. Je marche sur la Croisette et je me rends compte que je n'ai pas trop parlé de cinéma dans le fond. Et pourtant c'est évidemment le plus important. Sans les films, leurs vedettes et leurs réalisateurs, pas de limousines,...
