Shpend Sollaku Noe s'erige comme le Dante Alighieri du XXIe siecle: il n'y a ni fosses ni circuits infernaux, mais sa vision est tout aussi terrifiante. En lisant -Codici a barre (Code-barres)-, nous nous sentons plus que damnes, de veritables marionnettes qui circulent dans le monde-enfer ou l'informatique, les prets a rembourser, les financiers, les banques sanguinaires, l'envie, la jalousie, l'obsession de l'image, les fausses religions, l'absence de culture, la falsification de l'histoire, les bureaucraties infames, la corruption et l'incivilite ont remplace les flammes. Le livre - Se reveiller au fond du precipice - est une anthologie poetique divisee en cinq parties: - Telegramme du sepulcre - (poesies), - Mare Nostrum -, - Murus Noster -, - Check-up d'Homere - et - Codes-barres - (poemes). La partie - Telegramme du sepulcre - rassemble des poesies extraites des livres - La Sfinge (Le Sphinx) -, - Il regno del proibito (Le regne du prohibe) - et - Applaudire Caligola (Applaudir Caligula) -. L'Anthologie poetique de Noe, comme tous ses livres, est un gymnase tout equipe ou les - cellules grises - de la memoire poirotienne s'entrainent, suent et peinent. Chaque vers est a mediter. Non pas a cause d'une quelconque difficulte pour l'integrer, non, - le style de Noe est le plus simple qui puisse exister, parce que la verite est simplicite -, mais bien pour sa valeur intrinseque. Pour le message qu'il offre. Pour la forte emotion qu'il souleve. Sa Muse n'est pas un insigne, une decoration vide qui se porte sur la veste pour etre exhibee dans les soirees avec des amis ou dans les lieux publics, mais un poing dans un gant de velours qui desoriente et qui fait reflechir meme le dernier des naifs.

Comedy and laughter come to the rescue of two teen-age boys in a background of 1942 Midwestern mediocrity. From the Depression into World War II, they feel ignored by working mothers and an indifferent, industrial Indianapolis. As buddies, they find laughter and hope while enduring the problems of puberty, the discovery of girls, learning life's lessons mostly from light-hearted movies, vaudeville, and the comedies of network radio. Their hilarious and naive efforts to become comedy stars thrust them into early manhood, from high school to show biz. Their story is humorous and touching, a roller coaster ride of experiences, giving the reader a rib-tickling glimpse of their hopes and dreams, struggles and setbacks, all in a warm tapestry of fun and good feelings.

"Big Data" is on the covers of Science, Nature, the Economist, and Wired magazines, on the front pages of the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times. But despite the media hyperbole, as Christine Borgman points out in this examination of data and scholarly research, having the right data is usually better than having more data; little data can be just as valuable as big data. In many cases, there are no data -- because relevant data don't exist, cannot be found, or are not available. Moreover, data sharing is difficult, incentives to do so are minimal, and data practices vary widely across disciplines.Borgman, an often-cited authority on scholarly communication, argues that data have no value or meaning in isolation; they exist within a knowledge infrastructure -- an ecology of people, practices, technologies, institutions, material objects, and relationships. After laying out the premises of her investigation -- six "provocations" meant to inspire discussion about the uses of data in scholarship -- Borgman offers case studies of data practices in the sciences, the social sciences, and the humanities, and then considers the implications of her findings for scholarly practice and research policy. To manage and exploit data over the long term, Borgman argues, requires massive investment in knowledge infrastructures; at stake is the future of scholarship.

The Atlas does more than give national averages for all the main causes of death in the WHO European Region; it gives data on regions within countries and shows changes in mortality at this level between 1980/1981 and 1990/1991. Finally, it literally draws pictures of health in Europe, presenting the data collected in vivid and informative maps and bar charts. By showing differences in mortality from various causes in the European Region, the Atlas also indicates areas in which more study is needed to determine both the reasons for these differences and the most appropriate action to reduce them.

I’M SOMEBODY’S MAMA by Catherine Tyson, is a series of conversations by one woman who dares to believe that despite what society says about a single mother with three children, like all other women, she is a queen! This is a true journey of daily self-discovery, self -acceptance and ultimately of fulfillment. This book is gripped with humor, is tender at heart and embraces with courage life’s conflicts that everyone inevitably faces. Like life…this book is segmented into short footsteps that take on incredible moods from one stride to the next. Whether it’s about motherhood, children, not having a man, someone else’s man, no-good men (have I said too much about men?)… Tyson successfully brings to life abstract feelings into moving, jumping, dancing characters that make the journey of life so colorful. I’M SOMEBODY’S MAMA is a must read…Its like having a little secret weapon tucked under one’s arm that whispers ‘I might not be where I want to be…yet, but I am happy with who I am”…it’s self acceptance…the greatest gift you can give yourself and the world. Through Tyson’s life, it shows that no matter where you are…you are going to be just fine…From walking out on faith with three little ones in tow, to attending university against all odds and obtaining a bachelor’s degree and later to undertaking a Master’s degree in the midst of all the turmoil, it shows tenacity and focus to a fault. In each recollection, she glares her demons in the face while making sacrifices that ultimately result in a fight that can have no other winners but she and her babies. It’s a sharp and witty celebration of life as somebody, even if it’s just being SOMEBODY’S MAMA.

AIDS is possibly the greatest catastrophe facing the African continent. This is the stark message delivered by this latest issue of the UNICEF Progress report. It is estimated 860,000 children in sub-Saharan Africa have lost their teachers to AIDS in 1999, yet education is the cornerstone in preventing the spread of the disease. These and other statistics are set out in this annual report, detailing the progress of improving the quality of life for children and young people throughout the world. Some positive developments can be noted, such as the near-eradication of Polio, but much is still needed to be done.

Beryllium is an important metal that is used in a number of industries-including the defense, aerospace, automotive, medical, and electronics industries-because of its exceptional strength, stability, and heat-absorbing capability. It is found in a variety of technologies, including nuclear devices, satellite systems, missile systems, radar systems, bushings and bearings in aircraft and heavy machinery, x-ray machines used for mammography, cellular telephone components, computer components, and connectors for fiber optics. To help determine the steps necessary to protect its workforce from the adverse effects of exposure to beryllium used in military aerospace applications, the U.S. Air Force requested that the National Research Council's Committee on Toxicology (COT) conduct an independent evaluation of the scientific literature on beryllium, provide risk estimates for cancer and noncancer health end points, and make recommendations about specific tests for surveillance and biomonitoring of workers. The request specified that two reports be produced to accomplish those tasks. The first is to provide a review of the scientific literature on beryllium, and the second will expand more critically on the review in considering the maximum chronic inhalation exposure levels that are unlikely to produce adverse health effects, in estimating carcinogenic risks, and in providing guidance on testing methods for surveillance and monitoring of worker populations and other specific issues detailed in the statement of task. In response to the U.S. Air Force request, COT convened the Committee on Beryllium Alloy Exposures, which prepared this first report. Health Effects of Beryllium Exposure : A Literature Review identifies the available toxicologic, epidemiologic, and other literature on beryllium that is most relevant for addressing the statement of task, focusing primarily on beryllium sensitization, CBD, and cancer.
