La Barbera

  • Léo, Farah et Hamelin n'en mènent pas large : tous les adultes semblent s'être donné le mot pour leur pourrir la vie et les contrôler au maximum. Même Julie, l'adorable directrice de l'école Mercury, instaure de nouvelles règles de discipline où tout laxisme est banni. Hamelin, dont la fourrière a tenté de récupérer les animaux, et Lupe, dont la police a confisqué les robots, vont s'enfuir et entrer en résistance avec d'autres adolescents. Nos héros vont découvrir que le changement de comportement des adultes est dû au 6e mage, le télépathe. Bientôt, ils seront sept et pourront agir !

  • Ils sont sept : le Spirit, l'Alchimiste, l'Enchanteur, le Télépathe, la Démoniste, le Devin et le Shaman. Sept adolescents dotés de dons surnaturels uniques qu'ils ont du mal à comprendre. Bientôt, ils réaliseront que leurs pouvoirs sont immenses et ensemble, ils pourront sauver le monde... ou le détruire.

    Léo, qui est capable de communiquer avec les fantômes, débarque dans une nouvelle école où il est très tenté d'utiliser ses dons pour se défendre contre les petites frappes qui font régner leur loi dans la cour de récré. Mais il va surtout faire la connaissance de Farah, qui partage son corps avec une entité démoniaque, et Hamelin, qui comprend le langage des animaux. À trois, ils vont enquêter sur des vols dont Hamelin est injustement accusé, ce qui va les amener à découvrir d'autres enfants aux pouvoirs étonnants.

    Dans cette grande saga, les sept vont se rencontrer, se heurter, puis s'unir pour affronter une menace commune. Parmi les ennemis que rencontreront nos mages rebelles, il y aura des robots, une créature démoniaque, un huitième et mystérieux mage, une société secrète... et leurs propres parents ! Cependant, l'ennemi principal de ces jeunes, c'est avant tout eux-mêmes : le mal-être de Léo, l'oisiveté de Hamelin, le cynisme de Farah, la révolte de Lupe et le manque d'expérience d'Alice seront autant d'adversaires qu'il leur faudra combattre.

  • Léo, le spirit, n'a qu'un but : trouver le septième mage ! Grâce aux révélations d'Alice, la devineresse, il sait que c'est quelqu'un qu'il a déjà rencontré et qu'il porte vraisemblablement une tache de naissance comme les six autres.

    Alice fait une autre prédiction : l'un des cinq rencontrera l'enchanteur le mercredi suivant. Chacun suit alors ses intuitions et tente de provoquer des rencontres qui semblent totalement fortuites avec son suspect favori.

    L'enchanteur, ignorant tout de son pouvoir, laisse de curieuses créatures sur son passage, aidant bien involontairement les six à le trouver. Une course contre la montre est alors lancée, car une terrifiante et gigantesque bête a envahi la ville et détruit tout sur son passage... Et les "Magic 7" ne pourront livrer leur grand combat que lorsqu'ils seront au complet !

  • Afin de découvrir de nouvelles recettes, Superbrioche et Delys partent explorer la vallée des bonbons, où tout est à base de sucre. Bien accueillis par ses habitants, nos cuistots pourront-ils en repartir un jour ?
    Superbrioche aimerait reprendre la direction du restaurant de son mentor. Mais son ennemi juré Don McCook, en a tout aussi envie. Pour se départager, ils doivent explorer le monde et ramener de nouvelles recettes. Première étape : la vallée des bonbons, un endroit merveilleux où Brioche et son amie Delys sont accueillis à bras ouverts, mais ne serait-ce pas une cage dorée faite de sucreries ?

  • Léo, le spirit, part chez son père et s'immerge complètement dans sa bibliothèque. À travers sept histoires courtes, il en apprend plus sur les sept mages originaux. Et la vérité est bien différente de la légende !

    Léo apprend qu'il n'y a pas eu sept mages mais huit, que l'un d'eux a trahi ses compagnons, que la magie se transmet au premier héritier... et que les autres enfants d'un mage meurent inexorablement ! Il apprend surtout que la Bête a été créée de toutes pièces par les mages pour apparaître comme des héros aux yeux des hommes et ainsi gagner leur confiance.

    Prévenu par Milo et Alice qui viennent lui rendre visite, Léo apprend que son père lui ment et lui cache des livres essentiels sur les mages et leurs pouvoirs. Dégoûté, Léo quitte le manoir paternel et part rejoindre ses compagnons pour leur faire part de ses découvertes... et tenter d'éviter qu'ils ne reproduisent les funestes erreurs de leurs "glorieux" aînés.

  • Tunisie, 2012. Deux ans plus tôt, la révolution enflammait le pays. Devant un parterre passionné, un historien spécialiste de la Tunisie analyse les enjeux et l'impact de cette révolte sans précédent. Un autre homme, le narrateur, que l'on soupçonne ne faire qu'un avec cet érudit, fait là-bas la rencontre de personnages atypiques : un enfant surdoué de onze ans, qualifié de "petit singe" par les touristes ou un homme ambivalent, en réalité allié direct de la contre-révolution. Dans ce récit polyphonique, Serge La Barbera nous entraîne dans les méandres d'une histoire et d'un territoire d'exception en usant des clés de sa discipline pour mieux la réinventer. En connaisseur et en intime, l'auteur s'affranchit du carcan qu'impose la science et dérive allègrement vers la fiction. Mais une fiction amplement documentée, d'abord par l'archive mais aussi par l'expérience personnelle. Cette plongée dans son propre imaginaire et dans son vécu bouscule ses certitudes et son histoire. Son identité se redéfinit comme se redéfinit celle du pays. Connaissances, interrogations, troubles, souvenirs se superposent, s'entrecroisent et se répondent selon trois modes narratifs pour éclairer le syndrome de Salammbô, ville propice à l'exotisme littéraire.

  • A partir de moments choisis dans la riche histoire du Périgord, ce livre raconte le cheminement d'une réflexion et la tentative de cerner ce qu'est l'âme périgourdine. Il fait appel à la discipline historique sans négliger la propre sensibilité de l'auteur et son implication dans le récit d'événements qui ont marqué le Périgord. Il nous mène à comprendre pourquoi, comment et en quoi le département de la Dordogne tient une place privilégiée en France.

  • Les populations françaises de Tunisie, composées de Français métropolitains, de Français nés en Tunisie, d'Italiens ayant opté pour la nationalité française, de Maltais et de Tunisiens également, juifs mais aussi musulmans, ont formé une communauté diverse tant par sa culture que par ses comportements au quotidien. Voici un éclairage sur la France de la Seconde Guerre mondiale depuis "le balcon du Maghreb", sur l'histoire coloniale.

  • The Oxford Handbook of Organizational Climate and Culture presents the breadth of topics from Industrial and Organizational Psychology and Organizational Behavior through the lenses of organizational climate and culture. The Handbook reveals in great detail how in both research and practice climate and culture reciprocally influence each other. The details reveal the many practices that organizations use to acquire, develop, manage, motivate, lead, and treat employees both at home and in the multinational settings that characterize contemporary organizations. Chapter authors are both expert in their fields of research and also represent current climate and culture practice in five national and international companies (3M, McDonalds, the Mayo Clinic, PepsiCo and Tata). In addition, new approaches to the collection and analysis of climate and culture data are presented as well as new thinking about organizational change from an integrated climate and culture paradigm. No other compendium integrates climate and culture thinking like this Handbook does and no other compendium presents both an up-to-date review of the theory and research on the many facets of climate and culture as well as contemporary practice. The Handbook takes a climate and culture vantage point on micro approaches to human issues at work (recruitment and hiring, training and performance management, motivation and fairness) as well as organizational processes (teams, leadership, careers, communication), and it also explicates the fact that these are lodged within firms that function in larger national and international contexts.

  • This Brief is devoted to clean drinking water, which is (one of) the most important asset(s) in the food and beverage industry. In the present time of increasing water scarcity in many areas of the world, supply of clean water especially in the production and packaging chain of foods and beverages, is a crucial issue. This Brief hence outlines why functioning purification and reuse systems for wastewater are becoming more and more interesting and promising technologies in solving the challenge.  Readers find in this Brief an introduction to different innovative treatment methodologies. The authors discuss key parameters (such as the water volume to be treated, types and chemical and physico-chemical characteristics of pollutants, but also the intended use of the recycled water) and present various methodologies, such as separation or concentration systems, centrifugation, evaporation, filtration, flotation, gravity separation, membrane techniques, aerobic and anaerobic biological treatments, as well as combined or hybrid systems. Selected specific methods are presented in detail, specifically a new adsorption method for the removal of metal ions.

  • This astute volume brings together the latest expert research on adamantinomatous craniopharyngiomas (ACPs). ACPs are histologically benign but clinically aggressive tumors exhibiting a high propensity for local invasion into the hypothalamus, optic and vascular structures. These tumors, as well as the current treatments, may result in pan-hypopituitarism, diabetes insipidus, morbid obesity followed by type II diabetes mellitus, blindness, as well as serious behavioral and psychosocial impairments. Exploring in detail advances in both the understanding of tumor biology as well as clinical advances in patient management are explored in detail, this book will also look towards potential new treatment approaches.
    Basic Research and Clinical Aspects of Adamantinomatous Craniopharyngioma is the first book compiling all current research on ACPs. Mouse and human studies have unequivocally demonstrated that mutations in CTNNB1 encoding -catenin underlie the etiology of the majority, if not all ACP tumors. Genetic studies in mice have shown that ACPs are tumors of the pituitary gland and not of the hypothalamus as previously thought, and are derived from Rathke's pouch precursors. In addition, a role for tissue-specific adult pituitary stem cells has been revealed as causative of ACP. Together, these studies have provided novel insights into the molecular and cellular etiology as well as the pathogenesis of human ACP. Finally, this volume covers new treatment approaches that have been shown to be effective both in reducing ACP burden as well as reducing the morbidity associated with therapy.      

  • This book addresses the impact of migration on the formation and transformation of identity and its continuous negotiations. Its ground is the understanding of identity as a complex social phenomenon resulting from constant negotiations between personal conditions, social relationships, and institutional frameworks. Migrations, understood as dynamic processes that do not end when landing in the host country, offer the best conditions to analyze the construction and transformation of social identities in the postcolonial and globalized societies. Searching for novel epistemologies and methodologies, the research questions here addressed are how identity is negotiated in migration processes, and how these negotiations work in contemporary multiethnic Europe. This edited volume brings to the field a novel convergence of theoretical and empirical approaches by gathering together scholars from different countries of Europe and the Mediterranean area, from different disciplines and backgrounds, challenging the traditional discipline division.

  • States of Nature investigates the removal of the animal and its moral import from accounts of the human in political thought. By engaging some of the most foundational Western political texts (from Plato's Republic to Locke's Two Treatises to Rousseau's Discourse on Inequality), this work shows how the human and animal are intertwined in the creation of government, and in particular, in social contract theory. These political transitions are connected to transformations in the view of human nature that lead to the suppression of the animality of human life, as seen in Descartes' account of the metaphysics of man. States of Nature concludes by arguing for a new, vital, and relational approach toward animality as a foundation for our animal and environmental obligations.

  • The volume gathers theoretical contributions on human rights and global justice in the context of international migration. It addresses the need to reconsider human rights and the theories of justice in connection with the transformation of the social frames of reference that international migrations foster. The main goal of this collective volume is to analyze and propose principles of justice that serve to address two main challenges connected to international migrations that are analytically differentiable although inextricably linked in normative terms: to better distribute the finite resources of the planet among all its inhabitants; and to ensure the recognition of human rights in current migration policies. Due to the very nature of the debate on global justice and the implementation of human rights and migration policies, this interdisciplinary volume aims at transcending the academic sphere and appeals to a large public through argumentative reflections. Challenging the Borders of Justice in the Age of Migrations represents a fresh and timely contribution. In a time when national interests are structurally overvalued and borders increasingly strengthened, it's a breath of fresh air to read a book in which migration flows are not changed into a threat. We simply cannot understand the world around us through the lens of the `migration crisis'-a message the authors of this book have perfectly understood. Aimed at a strong link between theories of global justice and policies of border control, this timely book combines the normative and empirical to deeply question the way our territorial boundaries are justified.Professor Ronald Tinnevelt, Radboud University Nijmegen, The NetherlandsThis book is essential reading for those frustrated by the limitations of the dominant ways of thinking about global justice especially in relation to migration. By bringing together discussions of global justice, cosmopolitan political theory and migration, this collection of essays has the potential to transform the way in which we think and debate the critical issues of membership and movement. Together they present a critical interdisciplinary approach to international migration, human rights and global justice, challenging disciplinary borders as well as political ones.

  • In recent years, Alternative Food Networks (AFNs) have been a key issue both in the scientific community and in public debates. This is due to their profound implications for rural development, local sustainability, and bio-economics. This edited collection discusses what the main determinants of the participation of operators - both consumers and producers - in AFNs are, what the conditions for their sustainability are, what their social and environmental effects are, and how they are distributed geographically. Further discussions include the effect of AFNs in structuring the food chain and how AFNs can be successfully scaled up.The authors explicitly take an interdisciplinary approach to analyse AFNs from different perspectives, using as an example the Italian region of Piedmont, a particularly interesting case study due to the diffusion of AFNs in the area, as well as due to the fact that it was in this region that the `Slow Food' movement originated.
