The State of the Smart Grid
The potential of the Smart Grid is enormous: improved energy efficiency, optimization of power supply and demand, and greater transparency into power consumption. Theoretically, at some point in the future, the Smart Grid will allow consumers to specify different sources of electricity based on costs or environmental attributes. After a handful of years of innovation, how does this vision align with today's reality?

Japan - The 'Despised' Ainu People
An insightful report on racial discrimination in Japan. "A small boy denies his Ainu ancestry for fear of being bullied in a society where conformity is valued above all else. The Ainu people of the northern island of Hokkaido are despised by the rest of Japan. Different in appearance and language they have suffered more than a century of discrimination." (12:52)

"Our Little Ghost" by Louisa May Alcott (poetry reading)
Maybe this is a poem about a living child expressed in a somewhat macabre way, but on close examination that seems less likely. Louisa May Alcott is better known for her novel Little Women, published in 1865, one of the first novels of the movement called Literary Realism. When reality is harsh, literature and art tend to be idealised. Little Women is about a family of four sisters. Beth, the youngest, becomes ill and she actually dies. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Louisa_May_Alcott http:/

La mondialisation du droit : vers une communauté de valeurs (Mirelille Delmas-Marty)

La mondialisation du droit renvoie-t-elle uniquement à la globalisation économique ou à l’universalisation des Droits de l’Homme, et donc à une communauté mondiale de valeurs ?
Si la réponse n’appartient pas aux seuls juristes, les pratiques juridiques ont une place nécessaire pour consolider les choix de valeurs, voire pour anticiper et former des valeurs. La notion de « crime contre l’humanité » (Nuremberg) a créé une interdiction pénale à vocation universelle,

De l'individu libre et autonome : retour sur un grand mythe contemporain (Bernard Lahire)

Au nom de l’individualisme, on parle souvent du déclin des institutions (famille, école...) en affirmant que les collectifs (groupes, classes, communautés...) ne rendent plus compte des comportements individuels. Ces analyses sont-elles scientifiquement étayées ? Relèvent-elles de discours idéologiques ? Les hiérarchies culturelles, les inégalités sociales d'accès à la culture, les institutions familiales, scolaires et culturelles et leur travail de socialisation disparaissent-

Consentement, autonomie, égalité des sexes (Geneviève Fraisse)

La construction de la pensée de l’émancipation n’est pas seulement un acte de résistance et de subversion, mais aussi un raisonnement, une logique, une stratégie discursive. Les termes d’« autonomie », de « consentement » et d’« égalité » permettent d’éclairer la forme du débat actuel sur la controverse des sexes.
L’autonomie (être source de sa propre loi) est l'aboutissement du « devenir sujet » des femmes à la fin du XXe siècle. Pourtant, ce devenir suj
