By Barbara Fister. I am not going to write a review of John Warner’s latest book, The Writer’s Practice: Building Confidence in Your Nonfiction Writing, even though it’s full of great ideas for developing yourself as a writer, whether you are a student in a classroom, an instructor at the front of a classroom full of students convinced they aren’t writers after years of being told they are doing it wrong, or if you’re sitting at your keyboard wanting to get better at writing but feeling a sense of dread instead of a sense of possibilities.

Développement durable. Récupérer la chaleur émise par l'industrie

Selon l'Ademe, en France, plus de 7 000 établissements employant plus de 10 salariés libèrent une chaleur allant de +40 à +100 °C. Cette chaleur, dite "fatale" doit être récupérée car elle est "comptabilisée dans les objectifs à atteindre par les énergies renouvelables", indique Marina Boucher, ingénieure au service entreprises et dynamique industrielle de l'Ademe. L'agence espère ainsi passer de 0,5 TéraWattheure de chaleur fatale par an fin 2016 à 3 TWh en 2028.
