  • Adèle : Donc, c'est quoi ta preuve ? Elio : Les EMI. Adèle : Connais pas. Elio : Expériences de mort imminente. Il y aurait plus de 60 millions de témoignages de personnes qui sont mortes et revenues à la vie avec des souvenirs de leur expérience. " Sommes-nous là par hasard ? " C'est autour de cette question aux allures de défi qu'Adèle et Elio, que tout oppose, font véritablement connaissance après un premier rendez-vous via une application de rencontre.
    D'échanges animés en expériences étonnantes, les certitudes d'Adèle, ingénieure en électricité au mental très ancré, risquent bien de voler en éclats, sous l'accompagnement bienveillant d'Elio, magnétiseur et familier du monde des énergies. Et, en chemin, c'est nous, lecteurs, qui savourons la vulgarisation de haut vol de notions phares comme les corps énergétiques, les flammes jumelles, les sorties hors du corps, les expériences de mort imminente ou encore la création du futur.

  • The 4th edition of the Handbook of Research on Educational Communications and Technology expands upon the previous 3 versions, providing a comprehensive update on research pertaining to new and emerging educational technologies. Chapters that are no longer pertinent have been eliminated in this edition, with most chapters being completely rewritten, expanded, and updated Additionally, new chapters pertaining to research methodologies in educational technology have been added due to expressed reader interest. Each chapter now contains an extensive literature review, documenting and explaining the most recent, outstanding research, including major findings and methodologies employed.    The Handbook authors continue to be international leaders in their respective fields; the list is cross disciplinary by design and great effort was taken to invite authors outside of the traditional instructional design and technology community.      

  • ??Directed at the growing number of untutored personnel aspiring to enter the disciplines of ophthalmic technicianry and surgical assisting, ?The Scrub's Bible represents an entry level guide to understanding the human eye, its basic anatomy, and physiology.  Absorbing this information serves as the foundation for the authors, who are all skilled and respected eye surgeons, educators, and surgery center owners, to draw the reader through the fundamentals of the two most common areas of ophthalmic surgery: cataract and corneal/refractive surgery. The Scrub's Bible? is a comprehensive yet easy-to-read tool that is broken down into discreet and understandable elements, meant to avoid the intimidating rhetoric of a standard reference. 

  • The anthrax attacks of 2001 brought to light the critical need for advanced microbial forensics techniques. Although significant strides have been made in the rapid identification of pathogenic organisms based on nucleic techniques, comparatively little knowledge has been assembled in an easily accessible volume regarding physical and chemical signatures associated with pathogenic organisms and their production. There is currently a single text devoted to microbial forensics, but this text focuses primarily on the biology, identification, and epidemiology of pathogenic organisms, as well as quality control and handling of evidence. The text pays very little attention to potential chemical and physical signatures associated with the production, transport, and dispersal of microorganisms.
    The text proposed here would complement the available text in microbial forensics by presenting state of the art analysis techniques that are currently being used or developed for use in microbial forensics. The text will be written by a collaboration of recognized experts in the rapidly developing field of microbial forensics. In addition to introductory chapters covering the nature of the microbe and constraints of scientific data in the forensic arena, the text will contain specific information on chemical and physical analyses of cellular and extra-cellular components for forensic attribution. Finally, a chapter devoted to data reduction and analysis will serve to add context to the fundamental science to which the bulk of the text will be devoted.
    In addition to the law enforcement and intelligence communities, the proposed text will be an invaluable reference for academic, private, and government laboratories, studying the chemistry of microbes, regardless of whether that research is focused in a forensic setting or not.

  • This collection of essays reveals the extent to which politics is fundamental to our understanding of Samuel Beckett's life and writing. Bringing together internationally established and emerging scholars, Beckett and Politics considers Beckett's work as it relates to three broad areas of political discourse: language politics, biopolitics and geopolitics. Through a range of critical approaches, including performance studies, political theory, gender theory, historicizing approaches and language theory, the book demonstrates how politics is more than just another thematic lens: it is fundamentally and structurally intrinsic to Beckett's life, his texts and subsequent interpretations of them. This important collection of essays demonstrates that Beckett's work is not only ripe for political engagement, but also contains significant opportunities for understanding and illuminating the broader relationships between literature, culture and politics.

  • This edited collection explores the representations of identity in comedy and interrogates the ways in which "humorous" constructions of gender, sexuality, ethnicity, religion, class and disability raise serious issues about privilege, agency and oppression in popular culture. Should there be limits to free speech when humour is aimed at marginalised social groups? What are the limits of free speech when comedy pokes fun at those who hold social power? Can taboo joking be used towards politically progressive ends? Can stereotypes be mocked through their re-invocation? Comedy and the Politics of Representation: Mocking the Weak breaks new theoretical ground by demonstrating how the way people are represented mediates the triadic relationship set up in comedy between teller, audience and butt of the joke. By bringing together a selection of essays from international scholars, this study unpacks and examines the dynamic role that humour plays in making and remaking identity and power relations in culture and society.

  • At some point in their lives, most people will have thought: "He should never have said that" "How could she treat me this way?" "I feel guilty when I remember what I said to him" "I'm so angry I can't bear it" Usually, we don't feel that we can discuss these hurtful emotions, such as guilt, anger or jealousy, with our friends and families, let alone go to a GP for advice on dealing with them. We're a nation that bottles things up, dismissing anger, frustration, hatred and guilt as largely insignificant to our minds and bodies. But powerful emotions like these do affect us in a long-term way, not only mentally but also physically, and it's important to know how to get them under control before our health really suffers. This easy-to-follow, plain-English guide shows you why and how emotions can leave a physical scar, and talks about various life factors and influences that can lead to emotional stress.
