• Pittige jaren

    N.C.

    Jengelen, niet luisteren en boze buien horen bij jonge kinderen. Maar als uw 3-jarige dochtertje niet ophoudt met krijsen omdat zij geen tv meer mag kijken, wat is dan verstandig om te doen? Hoe te reageren als uw 5-jarig zoontje zijn jongere zusje een duw heeft gegeven, nadat ze zijn speelgoed heeft afgepakt? En als u uw zoontje naar de gang stuurt omdat hij zijn zusje heeft geslagen, maar hij komt steeds de woonkamer weer in, wat moet u dan? Wat kunt u doen als uw kind zich misdraagt in de supermarkt? Hoe kunnen kinderen geholpen worden beter met boosheid om te gaan? En hoe kunnen ouders de sociale vaardigheden van hun kinderen helpen vergroten in het samenspelen met andere kinderen?In Pittige jaren geeft Carolyn Webster-Stratton antwoord op deze vragen. Het zijn inderdaad pittige jaren, de tijd waarin ouders kinderen in de leeftijd van 2 tot 8 jaar opvoeden. Pittig in de zin van soms zwaar en heftig, maar ook in de zin van levendig, vol met voorvallen waar ouders later met vertedering op terugkijken, of hartelijk om kunnen lachen, Bij het bespreken van de problemen maakt klinisch psycholoog Carolyn Webster-Stratton gebruik van meer dan 25 jaar ervaring in het werken met ouders van jonge kinderen. Zij geeft niet alleen oplossingen, maar licht ook op een heel praktische manier de achtergrond toe van de gewenste aanpak.Pittige jaren is geschreven vanuit de unieke combinatie van een rijke praktijkervaring met een grondige kennis van de wetenschappelijke achtergrond van opvoeden. Voor menig ouder zal dit boek een veilige en wijze gids zijn bij het oplossen van opvoedingsproblemen.Ouders over Pittige jaren:
    "Hij is rustiger, liever en denkt nu ook aan anderen. Maar het komt niet vanzelf, je moet er wel iets voor doen"
    "Een praktische manier om als opvoeders samen aan de slag te gaan."
    "Elke dag spelen met je kind maakt een wereld van verschil: het zorgt voor een stevige basis en vertrouwen in elkaar."

    Écriture et art contemporain (dir. Denis Laoureux)
    La relation entre les arts et les lettres constitue un des piliers sur lesquels, en Belgique, le développement de la littérature francophone a largement pris appui, depuis Charles De Coster jusqu'à aujourd'hui. Cette relation a été investie sur un plan identitaire, au point de donner naissance à un lieu commun de la culture belge attribuant à l'écrivain une sensibilité plastique, et à l'artiste une aspiration littéraire. Le volume consacré par Textyles à La Peinture (d)écrite s'était donné pour tâche de décrypter les fondements et les mécanismes de ce double stéréotype. Le dossier Écriture et art contemporain voudrait reprendre cette problématique en la situant, cette fois, dans le contexte de la période contemporaine, c'est-à-dire à partir des années 1960.
    Il faut dire que la redéfinition des postulats esthétiques dans les années 1960 a pour effet de modifier les pratiques artistiques. La peinture perd son rôle dominant au bénéfice de disciplines en partie inédites, comme l'installation, la vidéo ou le livre d'artiste. Il semblait dès lors pertinent de s'interroger sur les diverses manières par lesquelles les hommes de lettres ont réagi devant l'émergence d'une culture visuelle où de nouvelles pratiques plastiques se substituent au modèle de référence jusqu'alors incarné par la peinture.
    Dans quelle mesure la substitution de ces nouvelles disciplines - les arts plastiques - aux catégories traditionnelles - les beaux-arts - modifie-t-elle la prétendue origine picturale de la littérature francophone ? Les écrits d'artistes s'inscrivent-ils dans des genres spécifiques ? Ceux-ci ont-ils une histoire singulière ? Quelles sont les particularités formelles des textes ? L'exposition constitue-elle une forme de récit ? Le dessin peut-il encore être littéraire ? La photographie est-elle une pratique chère aux écrivains ?

    • 11 Mars 2019

    The most significant architectural spaces in the world are now entirely empty of people. The data centres, telecommunications networks, distribution warehouses, unmanned ports and industrialised agriculture that define the very nature of who we are today are at the same time places we can never visit. Instead they are occupied by server stacks and hard drives, logistics bots and mobile shelving units, autonomous cranes and container ships, robot vacuum cleaners and internet-connected toasters, driverless tractors and taxis. This issue is an atlas of sites, architectures and infrastructures that are not built for us, but whose form, materiality and purpose is configured to anticipate the patterns of machine vision and habitation rather than our own. We are said to be living in a new geological epoch, the Anthropocene, in which humans are the dominant force shaping the planet. This collection of spaces, however, more accurately constitutes an era of the Post-Anthropocene, a period where it is technology and artificial intelligence that now computes, conditions and constructs our world. Marking the end of human-centred design, the issue turns its attention to the new typologies of the post-human, architecture without people and our endless expanse of Machine Landscapes.  Contributors: Rem Koolhaas, Merve Bedir and Jason Hilgefort, Benjamin H Bratton, Ingrid Burrington, Ian Cheng, Cathryn Dwyre, Chris Perry, David Salomon and Kathy Velikov, John Gerrard, Alice Gorman, Adam Harvey, Jesse LeCavalier, Xingzhe Liu, Clare Lyster, Geoff Manaugh, Tim Maughan, Simone C Niquille, Jenny Odell, Trevor Paglen, Ben Roberts.

  • This updated version of one of the most popular and widely used CCPS books provides plant design engineers, facility operators, and safety professionals with key information on selected topics of interest. The book focuses on process safety issues in the design of chemical, petrochemical, and hydrocarbon processing facilities. It discusses how to select designs that can prevent or mitigate the release of flammable or toxic materials, which could lead to a fire, explosion, or environmental damage. Key areas to be enhanced in the new edition include inherently safer design, specifically concepts for design of inherently safer unit operations and Safety Instrumented Systems and Layer of Protection Analysis. This book also provides an extensive bibliography to related publications and topic-specific information, as well as key information on failure modes and potential design solutions.

  • The first edition of the Code of Practice for Project Management for Construction and Development, published in 1992, was groundbreaking in many ways. Now in its fifth edition, prepared by a multi-institute task force coordinated by the CIOB and including representatives from RICS, RIBA, ICE, APM and CIC, it continues to be the authoritative guide and reference to the principles and practice of project management in construction and development. Good project management in construction relies on balancing the key constraints of time, quality and cost in the context of building functionality and the requirements for sustainability within the built environment. Thoroughly updated and restructured to reflect the challenges that the industry faces today, this edition continues to drive forward the practice of construction project management. The principles of strategic planning, detailed programming and monitoring, resource allocation and effective risk management, widely used on projects of all sizes and complexity, are all fully covered. The integration of Building Information Modelling at each stage of the project life is a feature of this edition. In addition, the impact of trends and developments such as the internationalisation of construction projects and the drive for sustainability are discussed in context. Code of Practice will be of particular value to clients, project management professionals and students of construction, as well as to the wider construction and development industries. Much of the information will also be relevant to project management professionals operating in other commercial spheres.

  • The initial Layer of protection analysis (LOPA) book published in 2001 set the rules and approaches for using LOPA as an intermediate method between purely qualitative hazards evaluation/analysis and more quantitative analysis methods. Basic LOPA provides an order-of-magnitude risk estimate of risk with fairly reproducible results. LOPA results are considered critical in determining safety integrity level for design of safety instrumented systems. This guideline clarifies key concepts and reinforces the limitations and the requirements of LOPA. The main scope of the guideline is to provide examples of CMs and ECs and to provide concrete guidance on the protocols that must be followed to use these concepts. The book presents a brief overview of Layer of Protection Analysis (LOPA) and its variations, and summarizes terminology used for evaluating scenarios in the context of a typical incident sequence. It defines and illustrates the most common types of ECs and CMs and shows how they interrelate to risk criteria as well as their application to other methods.
