    Luis Fernandez

    Homme de coeur et de passion, phénomène médiatique, riche d'un parcours exceptionnel, Luis Fernandez s'ouvre comme jamais il ne l'avait fait jusqu'à présent, dans l'espoir d'être mieux compris par un football français qui lui a fermé ses portes et qui le tient à distance.
    Luis Fernandez est un tourbillon permanent qui, chaque jour de la semaine, assène ses quatre vérités et entretient la polémique, avec une " tchatche " inimitable. Son rôle de consultant et sa liberté de ton lui confèrent un statut de " people ", et sa popularité auprès des supporters et des jeunes ne se dément pas.
    Mais savent-ils, seulement, qu'il a (bien) joué au football, qu'il y a obtenu des succès éclatants et qu'il a même été sacré champion d'Europe 1984 avec l'équipe de France de Michel Hidalgo ?
    De Cadix, où il est né en 1959, à Guadalajara, où son tir au but permet aux Bleus de se qualifi er pour les demi-fi nales du Mundial 86, en passant par les Minguettes, où il aurait pu mal tourner, la vie de Luis Fernandez emprunte des chemins de traverse, qu'il faut savoir revisiter pour mesurer l'énergie et la détermination qui l'animent. Le football l'a sauvé et lui a permis de prendre un virage salutaire.
    Il a transformé sa vie d'immigré, qu'il raconte jusqu'aux moindre détails. Il a fait de lui le footballeur français le mieux payé des années 80, et le seul entraîneur français vainqueur d'une Coupe d'Europe à la tête d'une équipe française.
    Pourtant, Luis Fernandez se sent mis sur la touche par le football français et avoue en souffrir.
    Sa déclaration poignante, contenue dans cet ouvrage autobiographique, ne laissera personne indifférent.

  • Devenu entraîneur du prestigieux PSG après avoir brillé sous ses couleurs, Luis Fernandez peut enfin se confronter à son modèle, Johan Cruijff, l'attaquant hollandais aujourd'hui à la tête du FC Barcelone (le Barca), et rêver d'offrir au public du Parc des Princes une équipe capable de produire du jeu et du spectacle. Par ses méthodes de motivation et de préparation des joueurs, l'ex-milieu de terrain des bleus, râleur et obstiné, a transfiguré l'AS Cannes en deux ans, avant de conduire avec panache le Paris-Saint-Germain. Le gosse des Minguettes, le petit immigré espagnol orphelin de père à 6 ans, doit tout au ballon rond. Dans son vocabulaire, il raconte ses difficultés scolaires, l'usine subie avec résignation, puis le dur apprentissage du footballeur professionnel, les rivalités entre joueurs, la duplicité des dirigeants, mais aussi sa passion du foot et sa fierté de porter le maillot national, toujours aussi vive à chacune de ses soixante sélections. Il ne cache rien de ses démêlés au Matra Racing, ni des inimitiés qui peuvent l'opposer à certains entraîneurs. Le Parc de mes passions nous montre Luis Fernandez tel qu'en lui-même : un homme de 35 ans, énergique et fougueux, flamboyant et passionné, à l'image du joueur dont la furia, enflamma et divisa les foules.

  • This book describes the operations and industrial processes related to the production of steel. The chapters cover the second part of the iron and steelmaking process, called steelmaking, presenting the stages of the process until obtaining the finished steel product in different formats for distinct applications. This book reports significant operating variables of the processes and basic operations of the steelmaking. The chapters contain numerous solved exercises conceptually supported on the thermodynamic and kinetic fundamentals of the production of steel from the pig iron in the Basic Oxygen Furnace (BOF) and the production of steel and ferroalloys in Electric Arc Furnaces (EAF). The thermal and mechanic fundamentals of the hot rolling operations and the mechanical fundamentals of the cold rolling, forming, and wire drawing to obtain different steel products are also reported. The book summarizes the strengths and uncertainties of steel as a structural material.

  • This book presents the proceedings of the 18th International Conference on Graphic Design in Architecture, EGA 2020, focusing on heritage - including architectural and graphic heritage as well as the graphics of heritage.  Consisting of two parts: "Representation and Analysis" and "Concept and Creation", this second volume gathers selected contributions on topics ranging from graphic representation to the graphic presentation of ideas, i.e. artistic creation, to bridge the gap between graphic heritage and the graphics of heritage. Given its scope, this volume will appeal to architectural and graphic designers, artists and engineers, providing them with extensive information on new methods and a source of inspiration for future research and interdisciplinary collaborations. 

  • This book analyses large-scale land investments for agricultural purposes in Africa's least developed countries from a law and economics perspective. Focusing on the effects of foreign land investments on host countries' local populations and the apparent failure of international law to create incentives to offset them, it also examines the legal and economic mechanisms to hold investors accountable in cases where their investment leads to human rights violations. Applying principal agent and contract theory, it elucidates the sources of opportunism and develops control mechanisms to ameliorate the negative effects. It shows that although judicial mechanisms fail to deliver justice, international law offers alternatives to safeguard against arbitrary and abusive state and investor conduct, and also to effectuate human rights and, thus, tackle opportunistic behaviour.

  • This book is a practical guiding manual to explain critical clinical practice in three-dimensional (3D) echocardiography. The use of this technology has been limited to certain pioneer imaging units, but with the advent of lower cost hardware it is spreading and reaching more users that will start to use it often without previous experience or formal academic training. This title provides these readers with a full review of the features, clinical indications and methodological aspects of 3D echo in a practical, "how-to-do-it" way. 3D-echocardiography techniques are becoming more diverse, as they are applied to transthoracic and transesophageal studies, 3D-wall motion tracking, fusion of echocardiographic and fluoroscopy navigation, fusion of wall motion tracking and coronary tomography. All these aspects are described and explained deeply in this book.

  • Providing an holistic approach to IMS technologies, IMS: A Development and Deployment Perspective explores service architecture for development and delivery of IMS services.  Approaching IMS from the perspective of the user and the service provider it examines both the current state of deployment and future trends. The book offers a realistic view of IMS deployment to operators and service providers, giving practical examples, application cases and business models. It also presents IMS deployment strategies based on real-life deployment statistics from a live IMS test bed connected to an operator network and proof-of-concept applications including inter-operability trials and results. Focusing on IMS potential in terms of service creation, service composition and service provision the book discusses the ability of IMS to act not only as a service delivery framework, but also as a service integration framework. It presents the possible future of IMS in terms of convergence with Internet services, including discussions about integration with web technologies including the WIMS 2.0 initiative. The book enables a better understanding of how web technologies can complement the IMS service architecture and pioneer the post-IMS progress and success. Presents a novel service-oriented approach to IMS services and applications from a deployment perspective  Places IMS in the context of the current telecom environment providing business models through WIMS 2.0 initiative Predicts the trends and potential future for the IMS evolution Provides a technical foundation to IMS principles and architecture Gives examples and solutions to the challenges of service creation and implementation and analyses deployment hurdles and interoperability trials Describes trends of convergence based on IMS and Web technologies

  • This work gives an overview of significant research from recent years concerning performance-based design and quality control for concrete durability and its implementation. In engineering practice, performance approaches are often still used in combination with prescriptive requirements. This is largely because, for most durability test methods, sufficient practical experience still has to be gained before engineers and owners are prepared to fully rely on them.This book, compiled by RILEM TC 230-PSC, is intended to assist efforts to successfully build the foundation for the full implementation of performance-based approaches through the exchange of relevant knowledge and experience between researchers and practitioners worldwide.

  • This book provides an overview of the physical phenomena discovered in magnetic molecular materials over the last 20 years. It is written by leading scientists having made the most important contributions to this active area of research. The main topics of this book are the principles of quantum tunneling and quantum coherence of single-molecule magnets (SMMs), phenomena which go beyond the physics of individual molecules, such as the collective behavior of arrays of SMMs, the physics of one-dimensional single-chain magnets and magnetism of SMMs grafted on substrates. The potential applications of these physical phenomena to classical and quantum information, communication technologies, and the emerging fields of molecular spintronics and magnetic refrigeration are stressed. The book is written for graduate students, researchers and non-experts in this field of research.

  • This book provides a generalised approach to fractal dimension theory from the standpoint of asymmetric topology by employing the concept of a fractal structure. The fractal dimension is the main invariant of a fractal set, and provides useful information regarding the irregularities it presents when examined at a suitable level of detail. New theoretical models for calculating the fractal dimension of any subset with respect to a fractal structure are posed to generalise both the Hausdorff and box-counting dimensions. Some specific results for self-similar sets are also proved. Unlike classical fractal dimensions, these new models can be used with empirical applications of fractal dimension including non-Euclidean contexts.

    In addition, the book applies these fractal dimensions to explore long-memory in financial markets. In particular, novel results linking both fractal dimension and the Hurst exponent are provided. As such, the book provides a number of algorithms for properly calculating the self-similarity exponent of a wide range of processes, including (fractional) Brownian motion and Lévy stable processes. The algorithms also make it possible to analyse long-memory in real stocks and international indexes.This book is addressed to those researchers interested in fractal geometry, self-similarity patterns, and computational applications involving fractal dimension and Hurst exponent.

  • The articles in this collection focus on philosophical approaches to proper names. The issues discussed include abstract names, empty names, naming and name-using practices, definite descriptions, individuals, reference, designation, sense and semantics. The contributions show the importance and lasting influence of theories proposed by John Stuart Mill, Gottlob Frege, Bertrand Russell, Donald Davidson, and Saul Kripke. Individual chapters assess traditional analyses and modern controversies, and contribute to the debate on proper names in contemporary philosophy of language.

  • Irrigated agriculture, a vital component of general agriculture, supplies fruits, vegetables, and cereals consumed by humans and grains fed to animals. Consequently, agriculture is the largest user of fresh water globally, and irrigation practices in many parts of the world are biologically, economically, and socially unsustainable. Water management should balance the need for agricultural water and the need for a sustainable environment. Water-use efficiency is the prime challenge in worldwide farming practices where problems of water shortages are widespread. Currently, agriculture is undergoing significant changes in innovative irrigation, fertilizer technology, and agronomic expertise. These elements constitute a vital platform for sustainable agricultural success and for preventing environmental damage. This review presents several processes linked to environmental irrigation, balancing environmental protection with improved agricultural production.

  • Ces pages que nous dédions à notre cher collègue André Gallego sont en grande partie le fruit d'un colloque sur la « Transmission de savoirs liâtes et illicites dans le monde hispanique (XIIe-XVIIe siècles) » qui a eu lieu à l'Université de Toulouse les 19, 20 et 21 mai 2008. Nous avons pu compter sur la participation de spécialistes issus de différentes disciplines universitaires, notamment des domaines de la littérature, la littérature comparée, l'histoire et l'histoire de l'art, ce qui nous a permis de créer un lieu d'échange interdisciplinaire pour les chercheurs des diverses équipes de l'UTM ainsi que pour un nombre important d'invités venus autres universités françaises et étrangères. À ce premier groupe de chercheurs sont venus s'ajouter d'autres collègues qui ont souhaité témoigner leur amitié pour André Gallego et lui rendre hommage. Le volume inclut également les actes de journée d'étude organisée par Teresa Rodriguez. « Avatars de la transmission », que nous avons décidé de publier en fin de volume. Transmission : c'est de la façon dont se transmet le savoir qu'il s'agit et non simplement du savoir transmis. Cette transmission se fait-elle oralement, visuellement, par le biais de textes, dans les institutions, ou dans le cadre de la vie privée ? Liée à la transmission, certains se sont intérrogés sur la réception de ce savoir : était-on plus perméable au savoir à partir d'une transmission par la parole ou par l'image ? La réception des idées était-elle liée au degré d'éducation ou au milieu social ? Le thème choisi a été ainsi traité selon des méthodes et des points de vue différents mais qui convergent sur une question centrale : la transmission du savoir, si chère à notre collègue.

  • This book deals with the main proponents of the causal and descriptivist reference theories on natural kind terms. The two main types of contemporary reference theories on natural kind terms are the causal and the descriptivist theories. The author analyzes the main versions of these two types of theories and claims that the differences between them are not as great as it is usually assumed. He alleges that the ostensive reference fixing and reference borrowing theories should be descriptive-causal, and he also adduces that the relation of kind-identity depends on the views on kind-identity and thus involves descriptive elements. This book is an important contribution to the debate on reference in contemporary philosophy of language and linguistics.

  • Nos enfrentamos a la complicada tarea de analizar algunas de las más relevantes leyes canónicas de los Sínodos diocesanos de Lima de 1582, 1584 y 1585. El fin no es otro que comprobar si, y hasta dónde, éstas han sido instrumentos útiles al servicio de la Justicia social, especialmente, a favor de la comunidad indígena. La óptica desde la cual ejecutaremos dicho análisis serán los principios de Justicia social formulados por John Rawls, en su célebre obra A Theory of Justice. La duda a solventar, ¿en qué medida tales normas han cooperado al desarrollo de la justicia en la sociedad indiana de Lima, en la segunda mitad del siglo XVI?

  • During the next few years, most European and World cities will be developing urban agendas. Materials published on the subject have been relatively scarce until now. This edited volume introduces a case study implementation of the European Urban Agenda (EUA) in a cross-border region in the Iberian Peninsula between Spain (Galicia) and Portugal. It explores the implementation of a number of urban core principles in two distinctive regions, serving as the basis for a comparative analysis on how such galvanizing principles work, contained in the EUA. The case presented in this edited volume is the first cross-border urban agenda to be drafted. It is a unique piece that contributes to our understanding of the complexities of implementing and translating a common set of urban European principles to variety of different local milieus. The chapters of the book closely examine the various strands of the implementation of urban policies through the lenses of land use, economic competition, innovation, culture and creative industries, energy, ecology, demographic challenges, housing, social inclusion and democratic governance. These chapters are written by international renowned scholars who were involved in the drawing up of the urban agenda for this territory. The ideas, principles and concepts that they impart can be extrapolated to most cities.

  • Pratiques hagiographiques II est la continuation de Pratiques hagiographiques dans l'Espagne du Moyen Âge et du Siècle d'Or, paru en 2005. Dans le volume que nous présentons ici sont traitées des questions concernant la littérature et l'histoire, l'histoire de l'art, le folklore, la religion et la théologie, au cours d'une longue période mieux caractérisée par son homogénéité que par ses différences internes, qui est celle du Moyen Âge et du Siècle d'Or espagnols. Chacun de ces deux grands moments a privilégié des thèmes et des angles d'approche spécifiques : pour le Moyen Âge, la modélisation héroïque du saint et la réorientation de l'hagiographie vers la narration de miracles spectaculaires ; pour le Siècle d'Or, l'élaboration et le contrôle de l'image de la sainteté dans le contexte de la Contre-Réforme, enjeux qui apparaissent nettement dans la comedia de santos et tout particulièrement dans les figures des saints au travail. Les rencontres scientifiques dont rendent compte ces pages, outre les échanges enrichissants qu'elles ont permis, témoignent de l'importance de l'interdisciplinarité dans ce genre de projet.
