We'll always have Paris...

Estive em Paris há dias. Em trabalho, mas ainda consegui passear por bairros castiços e comer moules frites. Fiquei numa casa de uns franceses típicos, perto da praça de Clichy, a passos de Pigales e Montmartre. Se quiserem ir lá digam, que vos dou o contacto deles.

Aqui ficam algumas fotos. Algumas são do liceu Louis XIV, que visitei. É uma nova forma de turismo que estou a iniciar, em vez de ir a monumentos, museus e afins vou a escolas ;). Também gosto dos bairros não comerciais e dos restaurantes só com franceses.

Festival Geada

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mushishi

Mushishi is a manga story that features ubiquitous creatures called Mushi that often display supernatural powers. Mushi are described as beings in touch with the essence of life, far more basic and pure than normal living things. Due to their ephemeral nature most humans are incapable of perceiving Mushi and are oblivious to their existence, but there are a few who possess the ability to see and interact with Mushi. The Mushi depicted in the anime look very similar to floaters.

Serial Experiments Lain deals directly with the definition of reality, which makes its complex plot difficult to summarize.[2] The story is primarily based on the assumption that everything flows from human thought, memory, and consciousness.[3][4] Therefore, events on screen can be considered halluc…

25 Stretch Goals for Management

Management, both in theory and practice, must orient itself to the achievement of noble, socially significant goals.Fully embed the ideas of community and citizenship in management systems. There's a need for processes and practices that reflect the interdependence of all stakeholder groups. Reconstruct management's philosophical foundations. To build organizations that are more than merely efficient, we will need to draw lessons from such fields as biology and theology, and from such concepts as democracies and markets.
Eliminate the pathologies of formal hierarchy. There are advantages to natural hierarchies, where power flows up from the bottom and leaders emerge instead of being appointed.
