Dans un Pékin sous verrou sanitaire et autoritaire, un jeune marié livre ses confessions : agent de cybersécurité pour le gouvernement chinois, il surveille le Net, les réseaux sociaux, et bloque les mots interdits dans les échanges entre citoyens connectés. Et il a fort à faire ! Dès que retentissent les premières notes d'une vieille comptine pékinoise, il sait qu'un des membres de sa famille est sur WeChat. Et pour les protéger, le voilà qui censure à tout-va. Mais il commence à mettre en doute les informations officielles. Il « fait le mur », passe de l'autre côté du Firewall et découvre que la frêle silhouette en chemise blanche face à un tank sur la place Tiananmen n'était pas un photomontage... Bientôt la muraille numérique s'effrite et les rumeurs d'un chaos à venir se font entendre. Les verrous pourraient-ils lâcher - et déclencher l'apocalypse ? Ou la révolution. Cybercomédie familiale, Les Portes de la Grande Muraille est à la fois une critique au vitriol et un ardent chant d'amour à Pékin et son histoire.
This is the first comprehensive book on Argentinian pedology. It discusses the main soil types of Argentina, their geographical distribution, classification, functions, agricultural use, ecological aspects, and the threats to which they have been subjected during centuries of intensive and extensive management. The description of the soils is accompanied by a complete set of data, pictures and maps, including benchmark profiles and an overview of the country's agricultural production. It also deals with future scenarios of the relationships between soil science and other disciplines and the main challenges that soil science will face in the future. Further, the book explores aspects of the main soil forming factors, such as climate, vegetation, geology and geomorphology, making use of new, unpublished data and elaborations, and presents a history of pedological research in Argentina.

The Science Quest introduces the Inquiry/Discovery instructional framework, an innovative method for captivating students? interest in science, for building their skills in scientific thinking, and for dramatically enriching their understanding of scientific content and concepts. For teachers curious how to implement ?inquiry? learning as called for in the National Science Education Standards, this book provides detailed and practical guidance. It shows teachers how to transform ordinary lessons in ways that 1) encourage students to take initiative in posing scientific ?inquiry? questions; and 2) enable students to independently ?discover? answers to their questions by engaging in investigative practices and critically evaluating the findings. Inquiry/Discovery practices can be introduced in stages, starting with simple activities and gradually increasing the levels of challenge. The Science Quest includes everything a teacher needs to bring successful instruction, including: Extensive lesson planning and assessment tools Suggestions on working with students in teams Scores of sample lessons from varied disciplines
Over the years we have heard many complaints that there is no very simple book on cardiac pacing for real beginners. We have also heard that all the books on cardiac pacing are too complicated and impossible to understand by beginners. Many have voiced the hope that one day someone would write a book in the same style as Dubin's book on basic electrocardiography which is a huge bestseller with well over a million sold in many languages. A `Dummy' book on cardiac pacing would appeal to nurses, cardiology technicians, medical students and pacemaker companies for training their staff.
We started with the assumption that the reader would know the principles of electrocardiography as in Dubin's book but nothing about cardiac pacing. We carefully studied the Dubin book and believe that we have improved his teaching method. The book consists of numbered illustrations each illustrating a concept in the form of a diagram drawn professionally. We have been careful to make the artwork simple for easy comprehension.
Each illustration will occupy a page and have several lines of text below it. We have already completed most of these. It is essential that there are all in color, this is a unique selling point.
The 3 authors have had vast experience in the field. Dr Barold has published 10 books on cardiac pacing and wrote the section on cardiac pacing in the 4th and 5th Edition of Braunwald's book, Heat Disease."
S. Serge Barold, Roland Stroobandt and Alfons Sinnaeve
The plates depicting a concept with occupy 1 pages. Each plate consists of a diagram and a short text.
All diagrams are in color. In black and white they would lose their teaching value
There will be approx 200 plates.
There will be approx 100 electrocardiograms.
There will be a glossary, appendices and index
