Antonio Rodriguez

  • Il s'est battu contre les multinationales. Il a défendu le " made in France " et en a fait son héritage. Il a combattu l'austérité, s'est heurté à François Hollande et à Bruxelles. À Bercy, Arnaud Montebourg a montré une autre voie pour la sortie de crise. En vain. Il a prêché dans le désert.
    Mais, depuis qu'il a quitté le gouvernement, il poursuit son combat. Il se pose désormais en alternative à la politique économique menée ces dix dernières années, qu'il désigne comme le " sarkhollandisme " et qu'il rend responsable de la hausse du Front national. De l'échec de la nationalisation de Florange aux succès du redressement productif, ce livre dresse le bilan de son action au gouvernement. Une trentaine de personnalités l'ayant côtoyé viennent contraster ses propos : des patrons tel Xavier Niel (Free), des industriels influents à l'image de Jean-Louis Beffa, des adversaires politiques comme le trésorier des Républicains Daniel Fasquelle qui dénonce " le scandale Alstom " ou l'ancien Premier ministre Jean-Marc Ayrault, et des témoignages de ses anciens collaborateurs...
    Toutes les pièces du puzzle Montebourg sont ici rassemblées. Leur dénominateur commun, c'est la révélation de cette enquête : il prépare son retour. François Hollande a gagné la première manche. Arnaud Montebourg est prêt à prendre sa revanche.
    Un document dans lequel il se confie comme rarement un ancien ministre ne s'était livré.

  • Lorsqu'elle met pour la première fois les pieds à la ferme, Camille n'imagine pas que son quotidien sera bientôt rythmé par les cris des cochons, les allées et venues des tracteurs, et le cycle des moissons. En tombant amoureuse d'Augustin, elle découvre une nouvelle vie, en pleine campagne, et troque sa tenue de citadine contre un bleu de travail. Elle doit alors se familiariser avec les exigences et la rudesse du monde agricole, jusqu'à devenir une agricultrice engagée, résolue à faire tourner l'exploitation malgré le spectre permanent de la faillite, de l'épuisement, et la difficulté à se faire une place dans ce monde d'hommes. Ce récit de la vie paysanne est écrit par Camille Beaurain qui a déjà témoigné de la mort de son époux et alerté l'opinion sur le suicide paysan.

  • En vert et contre tout.
    Denis Pommier est vigneron près de Chablis, en Bourgogne. Depuis 2008, il a remisé pesticides et glyphosate. Deux ans plus tard, son cru décroche le titre de " meilleur chardonnay du monde ".
    Sa conversion au bio est un succès.
    Il ne s'imagine pas alors à quel point sa décision de renouer avec la nature sera éprouvante pour lui, pour son épouse Isabelle, ses enfants et le domaine. Gel, grêle, mildiou, canicule... À partir du millésime de 2016, les éléments se déchaînent et mettent en péril son engagement. Au prix d'énormes sacrifices, il fait face, sans renoncer à son label bio.
    En retraçant une année de travail dans les vignes - de la taille aux vendanges - à travers l'histoire de Denis Pommier, ce livre dresse le portrait puissant et sensible d'un vigneron et fait entrer le lecteur dans le quotidien et les coulisses de la viticulture. Il révèle aussi le travail et les difficultés parfois amères que contient une bouteille de vin bio.

  • Bienvenue dans ma caserne.
    Romain Comte, sapeur-pompier et chef de caserne, voit chaque jour défiler des milliers de véhicules sur " la route de la mort " (la RCEA) - comme la surnomment les médias -, où la moindre erreur est fatale. Aux secours routiers s'ajoutent aussi les incendies, les accidents domestiques, les tentatives de suicide, la protection de l'environnement... Tout ce qui fait le coeur même du métier de pompier.
    Parmi ces interventions, certaines ne peuvent être oubliées, et marquent une carrière. Car derrière l'uniforme et le casque, se cachent avant tout des femmes et des hommes.
    Magré les épreuves, Romain vit une véritable vocation, fier de son métier tout autant que de son équipe de professionnels et de volontaires, qu'il dirige dans un esprit d'ouverture et d'écoute.
    Dans L'Appel des sirènes, Romain Comte témoigne, avec sensibilité et passion, de son quotidien de pompier, et incarne avec force la devise de sa profession : " Courage et dévouement ".

  • Predictive microbiology is a recent area within food microbiology, which studies the responses of microorganisms in foods to environmental factors (e.g., temperature, pH) through mathematical functions. These functions enable scientists to predict the behavior of pathogens and spoilage microorganisms under different combinations of factors. The main goal of predictive models in food science is to assure both food safety and food quality.   Predictive models in foods have developed significantly in the last  20 years due to the emergence of powerful computational resources and sophisticated statistical packages. This book presents the concepts, models, most significant advances, and future trends in predictive microbiology. It will discuss the history and basic concepts of predictive microbiology. The most frequently used models will be explained, and the most significant software and databases (e.g., Combase, Sym'Previus) will be reviewed.  Quantitative Risk Assessment, which uses predictive modeling to account for the transmission of foodborne pathogens across the food chain, will also be covered. ?

  • Les échecs et les perles considérables que les armées françaises avaient éprouvés au-delà du Rhin dans la campagne de 1813, avaient mis l'épouvante et la consternation dans la capitale de l'Empire, qui gémissait sous le joug et sous la tyrannie de Napoléon Buonaparte. Les Parisiens pouvaient à peine concevoir que des soldats sans aucune discipline militaire, des soldats qui étaient commandés par des chefs sans instruction, enfin, des soldats barbares pussent jamais exceller, ou surpasser dans l'art de la guerre des généraux qui s'étaient fait craindre et redouter dans toutes les contrées de l'Europe.Fruit d'une sélection réalisée au sein des fonds de la Bibliothèque nationale de France, Collection XIX a pour ambition de faire découvrir des textes classiques et moins classiques dans les meilleures éditions du XIXe siècle.

  • This book provides a richly illustrated study of sustainability, innovation and entrepreneurship. Specifically, it examines the ways in which governmental policies and practices modify the social conditions necessary to promote innovation in businesses and by so doing impact economic development. Exploring topics such as green innovation, green customer capital, smart cities, green entrepreneurship and environmental responsibility, this book presents some of the most current research and best practices in the field.
    In today's global economy, strategies, policies and practices that address the negative effects of human activity on the environment need to be incorporated into the business framework in order for companies to achieve a sustainable competitive advantage. Around the world, such changes have already resulted in a broad range of products, production methods and technical features that ensure environmental protection. At the same time, the mass media's communication of a deteriorating earth have motivated a growing number of citizens in both developed and developing nations to modify their consumption habits towards more ecological products. Consequently, an increasing number of companies are reacting to these changes in business and legal frameworks and consumer preferences by investing in new forms of green innovation or "eco-innovation" designed to promote both environmental and corporate sustainability. For example, Hewlett-Packard eliminated lead from its welding process; Wal-Mart reduced the emissions of their suppliers; and Cisco, Dell and IBM are investing in smart grids. This volume showcases pioneering efforts among companies, citizens, and government agencies that are moving from theory to practice by placing sustainability at the core of their development strategies.

  • The mobile market has experienced unprecedented growth over the last few decades. Consumer trends have shifted towards mobile internet services supported by 3G and 4G networks worldwide. Inherent to existing networks are problems such as lack of spectrum, high energy consumption, and inter-cell interference. These limitations have led to the emergence of 5G technology. It is clear that any 5G system will integrate optical communications, which is already a mainstay of wide area networks. Using an optical core to route 5G data raises significant questions of how wireless and optical can coexist in synergy to provide smooth, end-to-end communication pathways. Optical and Wireless Convergence for 5G Networks explores new emerging technologies, concepts, and approaches for seamlessly integrating optical-wireless for 5G and beyond. Considering both fronthaul and backhaul perspectives, this timely book provides insights on managing an ecosystem of mixed and multiple access network communications focused on optical-wireless convergence. Topics include Fiber-Wireless (FiWi), Hybrid Fiber-Wireless (HFW), Visible Light Communication (VLC), 5G optical sensing technologies, approaches to real-time IoT applications, Tactile Internet, Fog Computing (FC), Network Functions Virtualization (NFV), Software-De?ned Networking (SDN), and many others.
