La Commission européenne a annoncé ce mardi avoir ouvert une procédure sur un éventuel cartel du marché du livre numérique en Europe.

eBook: "An English Grammar" by Baskervill, William Malone

The object we have, or should have, in teaching science, is not to fill a child's mind with a vast number of facts that may or may not prove useful to him hereafter, but to draw out and exercise his powers of observation, and to show him how to make use of what he observes....
