  • Ce livre traite des problèmes gastro-intestinaux ou liés à l'alimentation, de la naissance à l'adolescence. Il propose des attitudes aidantes à adopter et confirme les approches de soulagement ou de traitement à envisager.

  • La pratique artistique collective permet d'aborder les compétences scolaires indirectement, en accordant au corps une place importante. Elle permet en outre de développer les compétences sociales, l'autonomie et l'initiative. Cet ouvrage a pour but de partager observations, analyses et convictions des auteurs : permettre au plus grand nombre d'enfants d'accéder à une pratique artistique exigeante, c'est lutter efficacement contre les inégalités.

  • Praise for Financial Statement Analysis FOURTH EDITION "I love this book. It helps to develop the questioning mind-the mind of a financial detective. It teaches the art of skepticism and critical thinking. Readers go beyond definition and calculation and learn interpretation."
    -Philip L. Cooley, PhD, Prassel Distinguished Professor of Business, Trinity University "Over my decades of involvement with high-yield bonds, Marty Fridson has been the leading speaker of truth. As he so accurately states in Financial Statement Analysis, the credit investor is required to engage in a game of cat-and-mouse with company management's intent on minimizing their cost of capital by putting a positive gloss on their financial statements. The Fourth Edition of Marty's terrific book is the bible on how to detect and deal with these efforts."
    -Howard Marks, Chairman, Oaktree Capital Management "Financial Statement Analysis is a unique text; it combines great academic work with numerous real-life examples to form a highly useful reference for equity investors, debt holders, and investors who straddle both asset classes. Whether you are an investor, an investment advisor, or a teacher, Financial Statement Analysis will prove very valuable."
    -Margaret M. Cannella, former head of Global Credit Research, J.P. Morgan and Adjunct Professor, Columbia Business School "Marty has seen it all! He has had a front-row seat to see the birth, death, and rebirth of the high-yield bond market . . . several times over! In the Fourth Edition of Financial Statement Analysis, Marty clearly demonstrates that despite the enactment of Sarbanes-Oxley in 2002, and other attempts to curtail abuse of the system, one needs a critical analytical eye to be certain that management is not trying to obfuscate the truth. The case studies provide excellent and timely examples of some of the techniques that companies have used to mislead investors."
    -Edward Z. Emmer, former global head of Corporate and Government Ratings and Equity Research, Standard & Poor's "Those who read financial statements without understanding the strategic context in which they are written will land on the losing end of the gripping episodes with which bond-market legend Marty Fridson illustrates in the Fourth Edition of his classic reference, Financial Statement Analysis. And all of us who depend on the markets sending capital to its best use should hope that investors read this book first."
    -David Musto, Professor of Finance, the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania "This book rightly urges resolute skepticism when inspecting financial statements. Its great value, though, is in the plain-spoken stripping down of real-world and illustrative examples that show how to see past the numbers to the practicalities and incentives behind them-and so help analysts and journalists alike ask the right questions."

  • This volume investigates the contemporary fauna that inhabit the Cuatro Ciénegas Basin. Divided into 15 chapters, it addresses and describes their diversity, taxonomic and biogeogaphic affinities, and ecological characteristics. 
    The Cuatro Ciénegas Valley is a unique oasis in the south-central region of the State of Coahuila, part of the Sonoran Desert, in Mexico. Several clues, specially derived from the study of the microbiota, suggest a very ancient origin of the valley and its permanence through time. This condition had promoted a high level of endemism and led to unique interactions between the resident species.

  • All too often, financial statements conceal more than they reveal. Even after the recent economic crisis, those analyzing financial statements face serious new concerns and challenges. The Fourth Edition of Financial Statement Analysis skillfully puts this discipline in perspective, and now, with this companion Workbook, you can hone your skills and test the knowledge you've gained from the actual text, before putting them to work in real-world situations. Question-and-answer sections within this Workbook correspond to each chapter of Financial Statement Analysis, Fourth Edition. Part One (Questions) provides chapter-by-chapter fill-in-the-blank questions, as well as financial statement and computational exercises. They are designed to be thought-provoking and require analysis and synthesis of the concepts covered in the book. The answers to all questions, which can be found in Part Two, are provided in boldfaced italic type in order to facilitate the checking of answers and comprehension of material. By enhancing your understanding of financial statement analysis, you can begin to undertake genuine, goal-oriented analysis and prepare for the practical challenges of contemporary business. This reliable resource will help you achieve such a difficult goal and allow you to make more informed decisions-whether you're evaluating a company's stock price or determining valuations for a merger or acquisition.
