Dans son édition du 10 septembre, The Economist a lâché une bombe dont la déflagration a été ressentie de part et d'autre de l'Atlantique. Quel est ce retentissant scoop repris par plusieurs médias et pas mal de blogs anglo-saxons ? Le fabricant et concepteur de meubles Ikea s'apprêterait, d'après le respecté hebdomadaire économique, à remplacer sa célèbre bibliothèque Billy dont la profondeur s'inscrit à 11 pouces (28 centimètres selon le catalogue français du groupe suédois), par une Billy plus profonde et donc à-même d'accueillir des "coffee-table books", de "beaux livres" illustrés, en somme. Le "ebook" fait un carton outre-Atlantique Pourquoi le groupe suédois allait-il substituer sa Billy d'origine, si populaire, par une Billy, plus grosse, visant à accueillir sur ses étagères toutes sortes de livres, "sauf ceux qui sont faits pour être lus" ? A cause des tablettes numériques pardi et de l'énorme succès des livres électroniques outre-Atlantique !

by Isaiah is the principal prophetical figure in the first period of canonical prophetism, i.e., the Assyrian period, just as Jeremiah is in the second, i.e., the Babylonian. With Isaiah are connected in the kingdom of Judah: Joel, Obadiah, and Micah; in the kingdom of Israel: Hosea, Amos, and Jonah. The name "Isaiah" signifies the "Salvation of the Lord." In this name we have the key-note of his prophecies, ... more... In the Messianic prophecies contained in Genesis we cannot fail to perceive a remarkable progress in clearness and definiteness.
by For most of us, trying to find a moment of peace in our hectic schedule is like searching for a needle in a haystack. When faced with a crisis it's more likely that we'll fly into a panic than calmly assess the situation and formulate a plan to deal with the problem. With the help of The brilliant book of calm you can take charge of your life like never before, so that when push comes to shove and the proverbial ... more... As an inspirational speaker I am often amazed by the power that lies in a single quotation to transform someone's life.
So many slighting remarks have been made of late on the use of teaching grammar as compared with teaching science, that it is plain the fact has been lost sight of that grammar is itself a science. 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.... And here the teacher of grammar has a great advantage over the teacher of other sciences, in that the facts he has to call attention to lie ready at hand for every pupil to observe without the use of apparatus of any kind while the use of them also lies within the personal experience of every one. —Dr Richard Morris. The proper study of a language is an intellectual discipline of the highest order.
