Becoming Happier Takes Both a Will and a Proper Way: An Experimental Longitudinal Intervention to Boost Well-Being Keeping your Mac locked down: a Mac OS X security primer: Page 1 Apple's approach to security can be a little bewildering at times. It's a well-trumpeted aspect of the OS, marketed in detail on the website. Mac OS X has integrated smartcard support and Apple has certified the OS under the Common Criteria guidelines; a section of Apple's developer site is devoted to the subject of security. At the same time, Apple didn't offer cryptographically signed software updates until its hand was forced in July 2002.

Un nouvel outil au service de ma pédagogie : Storify ! Dans le cadre de mon cours de français, j’ai utilisé un nouvel outil qui nous a été présenté lors du Barcamp Médias- sociaux à Paris ces jours derniers (#ms_sevres11) : Storify Suite à la projection du film des Frères Dardennes , "le silence de Lorna" (dans le cadre du processus lycéens et cinéma) , les élèves ont eu à étudier différentes critiques sur le film. J’aurais pu leur photocopier quelques textes glanés sur la toile, leur donner une série de questions papier et leur faire rédiger à leur tour un texte argumenté sur le sujet. Mais ça m’ennuie autant qu’eux ! Voici le scénario pédagogique issu de ces constats: Volume horaire : 2H (dont une heure par groupe) / classe de terminale bac pro compta J’ai créé une banque de critiques du film sur le pearltrees de la classe (consultable et perlable ) .
