♦ Description : “1984 Orwell spoke of a violent dictatorship. The world of Big Datas on the horizon of the half of this century will be that of a hegemony at once sweet and totalitarian. The end of Greek thought is on the march and with it an era of humanity is soon over. We call them Big Datas. Google, Apple, Facebook or Amazon, these digital giants, who aspire through the Internet, smartphones and connected objects, billions of data about our lives.
Behind this espionage, whose magnitude is measured every day, we discover that there is a secret pact sealed by the Big Datas with the most powerful intelligence apparatus on the planet. This mating between US agencies and digital conglomerates, is giving birth to a new kind of entity. A mutant power, seeded by globalization, which aims neither more nor less to reformat Humanity.
The takeover of our lives takes place in favor of a new world oligarchy. For Big Data, democracy is obsolete, as are its universal values. It’s a new dictatorship that threatens us. A Big Mother even more terrifying than Big Brother. If we leave we will be tomorrow “naked men”, without memory, programmed, under surveillance. It’s time to act.

Description : Twenty-five languages die each year; at this pace, half the world’s five thousand languages will disappear within the next century. In this timely book, Claude Hagège seeks to make clear the magnitude of the cultural loss represented by the crisis of language death. By focusing on the relationship of language to culture and the world of ideas, Hagège shows how languages are themselves crucial repositories of culture; the traditions, proverbs, and knowledge of our ancestors reside in the language we use. His wide-ranging examination covers all continents and language families to uncover not only how languages die, but also how they can be revitalized—for example in the remarkable case of Hebrew. In a striking metaphor, Hagège likens languages to bonfires of social behavior that leave behind sparks even after they die; from these sparks languages can be rekindled and made to live again.

Description : El mundo ha cambiado tanto que los jóvenes tienen que reinventar la rueda. Para Michel Serres, nace un nuevo ser humano, él lo bautiza como Pulgarcita, sobre todo por su capacidad para enviar mensajes con el pulgar. Las sociedades occidentales han experimentado dos revoluciones: la transición de lo oral a lo escrito, y el paso de escribir en una pizarra a escribir en libros. Ahora vivimos la tercera revolución: la transición a las nuevas tecnologías. No hay progreso o desastre, ya sea bueno o malo, ésta es la realidad y tenemos que lidiar con eso. La generación Pulgarcita tendrá que reinventar una forma de vivir juntos, instituciones y formas de ser y conocer. - "Michel Serres es el abuelo con el que todos soñamos. En él se unen tan bien la sabiduría y la juventud, que a su lado se tiene la impresión de que tiene toda la vida por delante" - Sophie Bancquart, directora de la Editorial Pommier. - "A este formidable ensayo se puede aplicar igualmente la frase de Michel de Montaigne: "vale más una cabeza bien hecha que una cabeza bien llena" - Lire, Francia. - "Michel Serres analiza meticulosamente y con ternura los cambios que entrañan las nuevas tecnologías sobre (o en) las generaciones actuales. Lejos de estigmatizar a los nativos digitales, describe una generación mutante y apasionada" - Dirigeants Chrétiens.

Description : What will planet Earth be like in twenty years? At mid-century? In the year 2100? Prescient and convincing, this book is a must-read for anyone concerned about the future. Never has the world offered more promise for the future and been more fraught with dangers. Attali anticipates an unraveling of American hegemony as transnational corporations sever the ties linking free enterprise to democracy. World tensions will be primed for horrific warfare for resources and dominance. The ultimate question is: Will we leave our children and grandchildren a world that is not only viable but better, or in this nuclear world bequeath to them a planet that will be a living hell? Either way, he warns, the time to act is now. "A Brief History of the Future" written by Jacques Attali with ISBN_13 9781628721331 and ISBN_10 1628721332 with total page sheets [-312-].

Description : The resources race is on. Powering our digital lives and green technologies are some of the Earth's most precious metals -- but they are running out. And what will happen when they do? The green-tech revolution has been lauded as the silver bullet to a new world. One that is at last free of oil, pollution, shortages, and cross-border tensions. Drawing on six years of research across a dozen countries, this book cuts across conventional green thinking to probe the hidden, dark side of green technology. By breaking free of fossil fuels, we are in fact setting ourselves up for a new dependence -- on rare metals such as cobalt, gold, and palladium. They are essential to electric vehicles, wind turbines, solar panels, our smartphones, computers, tablets, and other everyday connected objects. China has captured the lion's share of the rare metals industry, but consumers know very little about how they are mined and traded, or their environmental, economic, and geopolitical costs. The Rare Metals Waris a vital exposé of the ticking time-bomb that lies beneath our new technological order. It uncovers the reality of our lavish and ambitious environmental quest that involves risks as formidable as those it seeks to resolve. "The Rare Metals War" written by GUILLAME.
