  • DNA makes a creature human, but what makes him an American? Is there a "culture code" that programs us to become German, or Japanese, or French? Dr. Clotaire Rapaille believes there is such a code, a silent system of archetypes that we unconsciously acquire as we grow up within our culture. The codes vary around the world and invisibly shape how we behave in our personal lives, as consumers, and as nations. Dr. Rapaille used his ability to break the "culture code" to help Chrysler build the PT Cruiser--the most successful American car launch in recent memory. He used it to help NestlGe introduce coffee to the tea culture of Japan, and to explain why George W. Bush is on code for the U.S. presidency and John Kerry was on code for the French presidency. And now, in The Culture Code, he uses it to reveal what makes Americans American, and what makes us different from the world around us. Dr. Rapaille decodes fundamental archetypes ranging from sex to money to health to America itself.

In this edition, the effects on migration and displacement of some of the most dramatic disasters of 2018 are studied, including the Sulawesi earthquake and tsunami in Indonesia, Hurricane Florence and Camp Fire (which was the deadliest and most destructive wildfire in California's history) in the United States, and the Volca´n de Fuego eruption in Guatemala.

Quels sont les avantages et les inconvénients de l'enseignement en immersion? Les élèves en immersion accusent-ils un retard dans le développement de leur langue maternelle? L'immersion n'est-elle pas une forme élitiste d'enseignement? Quel est le rôle des parents dans le processus d'apprentissage;? Par ailleurs, les enseignants expriment un énorme besoin d'une didactique appropriée et de matériel spécifique pour les classes en immersion. Ils doivent cependant souvent se débrouiller seuls...

About why Barack Obama opted for Gotham, while Amy Winehouse found her soul in 30s Art Deco.
