Vulgarisation, mode d’emploi est le premier guide de vulgarisation. Il offre des réponses concrètes aux scientifiques et ingénieurs souhaitant partager leurs savoirs avec le plus grand nombre. Véritable manuel pratique, il décrit les règles de base, les pièges à éviter, les différents modes de vulgarisation et de médiation scientifiques, sans oublier les aspects concrets des petits et grands projets de médiation scientifique. Aujourd’hui, s’exprimer clairement sur les sciences est indispensable pour développer ses collaborations, décrocher des financements, intéresser les médias, et attirer des étudiants. Mais aussi pour se rapprocher des citoyens, souvent déboussolés face aux sciences et à leurs applications. Au-delà des scientifiques, ce livre s’adresse à tous les experts d’un domaine – médecins, économistes, hommes de loi, techniciens, qui ont besoin de communiquer avec des non-spécialistes. Qui est mon public ? Quelles sont ses attentes ? Est-ce possible de simplifier sans déformer ? Quelles astuces pour accrocher l’intérêt de mon auditoire ? Où se former à la vulgarisation ? Comment interagir avec des journalistes ? Ai-je le droit de parler dans les médias sans l’autorisation de ma hiérarchie ? Comment utiliser au mieux les possibilités d’Internet ? Autant de questions que se pose l’apprenti-vulgarisateur, qui trouvera dans ce livre des réponses et des conseils directement applicables. Mais surtout, il y dénichera des idées pour inventer sa propre manière de vulgariser. Basé sur une expérience de plus de 10 ans de formations à la vulgarisation, alliée à une connaissance approfondie du monde scientifique et des médias, cet ouvrage s’appuie sur des exemples vécus, des témoignages de chercheurs et de journalistes. Des vulgarisateurs parmi les plus connus livrent leur vision de cet art complexe et captivant qu’est la médiation scientifique.

A joyful and indispensable guide filled with astonishing, important, and little-known information about the vagina that will equip a new generation to make informed choices about their sexual health and happiness. The Wonder Down Under is a comprehensive guide to a miraculous and complex part of the body that too few of us (regardless of gender) are all that familiar with--the vagina. With wisdom, humor, and scientific aplomb, medical student Ellen Støkken Dahl and Dr. Nina Brochmann take readers on a fascinating journey of female sexual organs and sexual health--from the clitoris to contraception to cervical cancer. More than a user's manual, this book is the funny, frank tribute to the vagina that we have been waiting for. The Wonder Down Under is filled with astonishing, essential, and little-known information--relayed with both medical expertise and genuine empathy. Did you know, for instance, that female and male sex organs are merely variations on the same basic structure? Or that there's no such thing as a virginity test--because examining the hymen cannot meaningfully indicate whether or not someone's had sex? Brochmann and Dahl have written a tour-de-force about the biology, anatomy, and reality of the female body, examining the many ways in which widespread misinformation and silence about the vagina have been harmful to women over time. The Wonder Down Under makes crucial contributions to the discussion: the book was an instant bestseller that sold out in its native Norway in just three days. Since then it has been acquired by publishers in more than two dozen countries around the world. The Wonder Down Under is a joyful and indispensable book that will educate readers of all kinds and equip a new generation to make informed choices about their sexual well-being.

Edition 2013. Cet ouvrage, devenu célèbre sous son sigle MCSE, a déjà été utilisé par environ 200 000 personnes, étudiants, chercheurs, universitaires, ingénieurs... L’objectif est d’abord de lire et écrire des textes en anglais scientifique avec facilité et pertinence. L’ouvrage est conçu pour que l’apprenant devienne un véritable utilisateur de l’anglais. La méthode repose sur l’analyse des fonctions et structures nécessaires : measurement, frequency, comparison, modification, ink words, time, cause and consequence, hypothesis, modality, purpose and process, impersonal forms, compound nouns and adjectives. Dans chaque unit, des tests d’auto-évualuation permettent au lecteur de construire son parcours de formation. On peut définir ses objectifs à l’aide de key points et du lexis, en puisant dans les examples in context, les checkpoints... MCSE est l’outil de base d’une méthode qui comprend un environnement numérique en développement permanent. C’est un “pap-ebook”, c’est-à-dire qu’au livre est associé un site web en accès libre qui permet d’effectuer des exercices directement corrélés au livre (des exercices, un programme pour faire une évaluation réaliste de son niveau, des versions audio pour s'entrainer, un répétiteur lexical pour une révision du vocabulaire scientifique, etc.). D’autres outils sont également proposés pour mieux comprendre et mieux s’exprimer oralement. MCSE est la porte d’entrée de tout cet environnement.

This is the official text for the National Association of Science Writers. In the eight years since the publication of the first edition of A Field Guide for Science Writing, much about the world has changed. Some of the leading issues in today's political marketplace - embryonic stem cell research, global warming, health care reform, space exploration, genetic privacy, germ warfare - are informed by scientific ideas. Never has it been more crucial for the lay public to be scientifically literate. That's where science writers come in. And that's why it's time for an update to the Field Guide, already a staple of science writing graduate programs across the country. The academic community has recently recognized how important it is for writers to become more sophisticated, knowledgeable, and skeptical about what they write. More than 50 institutions now offer training in science writing. In addition mid-career fellowships for science writers are growing, giving journalists the chance to return to major universities for specialized training. We applaud these developments, and hope to be part of them with this new edition of the Field Guide. In A Field Guide for Science Writers, 2nd Edition, the editors have assembled contributions from a collections of experienced journalists who are every bit as stellar as the group that contributed to the first edition. In the end, what we have are essays written by the very best in the science writing profession. These wonderful writers have written not only about style, but about content, too. These leaders in the profession describe how they work their way through the information glut to find the gems worth writing about. We also have chapters that provide the tools every good science writer needs: how to use statistics, how to weigh the merits of conflicting studies in scientific literature, how to report about risk. And, ultimately, how to write.

Present Day Cairo, Egypt: Over lunch in the Muslim quarter, world-famous cryptanalyst Thomas Noronha is hired by a beautiful dark-haired woman, Ariana Pakravan, to decipher a cryptogram hidden in a recently discovered secret document under heavy security in Tehran. A manuscript penned by Albert Einstein, it is titled Die Gottesformel: The God Formula. So begins a remarkable adventure that spans the world, as Thomas and Ariana pursue the dangerous truth behind an incredible document. The Einstein Enigma is a breathtaking fusion of science, thriller, and religion, a mind-bending trip to the source of time, the essence of the universe, and the meaning of life itself.
