About Martha de Francisco

Women of Distinction Awards - Arts and Culture Category
Martha de Francisco is an artist, but an artist whose work is to make the work of other artists great. Lend us an ear for a moment . . .
This classically-trained pianist, who was born in Colombia but educated in Germany, has dedicated her professional life to becoming one of the world's top sound engineers for classical music. Quite an accomplishment, considering that sound recording is an almost entirely male-dominated industry—only 5% are women.

Faut-il revoir la formation des managers algériens ?

Wed, 2015-05-06 10:16

Non seulement les formations en management offertes en Algérie ne préparent pas les managers à gérer les hommes, elles leur donnent l’illusion d’un pouvoir qui se révélera fictif sur la maîtrise de leurs affaires.
... Dans son fameux livre paru en 2005, Managers not MBAs1, le grand Henry Mintzberg a frappé un grand coup en démontrant de façon magistrale l’inadéquation des formations offertes dans les MBA classiques avec les réels besoins du management contemporain.

Museum time for the Lessard team

Wed, 2015-05-06 04:37

Musical instruments created by students Steven Phillips and Ajith Damodaran, under the supervision of Prof Larry Lessard, were displayed at the Design Museum in Ghent, Belgium, during the month of April 2015. An exhibition called “Kunststof Natuurlijk,” or “Synthetic by Nature,” showcased 50 objects made from flax, hemp, bamboo and other biocomposites. Natural fiber composites are gaining interest in engineering design, and this exhibit featured the state-of-the-art and future possibilities for these materials.
