Alan will share how just through changing the way you ask for something, you can get things to go in your favour! n both our professional and personal lives, we all too often have difficult subjects to broach, uncomfortable requests to make. We struggle to find the right words, the appropriate formula which will allow us to do so in a way that’s comfortable for us and comfortable for the other person – and so instead we put the conversation off, despite knowing that if we don’t ask for what we want, we almost certainly won’t get it.
Francesco Giuseppe, Imperatore d'Austria e Re d'Ungheria, abbraccia con il suo regno uno dei periodi più ricchi d'eventi della storia europea. Nella sua lunghissima vita furono molti gli eventi tragici a cui dovette assistere: …
This generous 16-song collection provides a comprehensive overview of Robert Palmer's many fine songs, from his early work as an eclectic white soul singer working in a number of styles, to his reign as MTV icon and rock's most sophisticated dresser.
The career of blue-eyed soul singer Robert Palmer was a study in style versus substance. While the performer's earliest work won praise for its skillful assimilation of rock, R&B, and reggae sounds, his records typically sold poorly, and he achieved his greatest notoriety as an impeccably dressed lounge lizard. By the mid-'80s, however, Palmer became a star, although his popularity owed less to the strength of his material than to his infamous music videos: taking their cue from the singer's suave presence, Palmer's clips established him as a dapper, suit-and-tie lady's man who performed his songs backed by a band comprised of leggy models, much to the delight of viewers who made him one of MTV's biggest success stories.
La gloire d’Alan Turing commence vers la fin du XXe siècle, bien longtemps après sa mort.Il aura donc fallu attendre l’informatisation du monde, la divulgation de ses activités de décryptage durant la Seconde Guerre mondiale et la levée des tabous sur l’homosexualité, pour que son génie mathématique déploie enfin toutes ses dimensions scientifiques, culturelles et personnelles.Ses recherches très variées, et notamment sa célèbre machine, sont loin d’avoir donné tous leurs fruits. Nous vivons en partie dans une sorte d’« espace de Turing » mal connu, que les lettres rassemblées ici explorent avec humour, savoir et affection.
