    Henk van Rensbergen is a Boeing 787 pilot who flies around the globe. While his crew rests at the swimming pool, he goes out to explore abandoned places in our world. From the breakaway state of Abkhazia, a floating warship cemetery in France, a forgotten love hotel in Japan to an abandoned rail depot in Detroit, van Rensbergen searches for the beauty of their desolation and pinpoints the richness of their decay. Van Rensbergen is a pioneering urban explorer. His Abandoned Places photo books (1, 2, 3 and The Photographer's Selection) have been highly successful. This complete revised edition shows his most iconic photos of the past 25 years, including new unpublished material and anecdotes.

    Pourquoi le nombre de cas d'obésité augmente-t-il dès qu'un nouvel hypermarché ouvre ses portes ? Pourquoi les plus grandes entreprises au monde s'arrogent-elles tous les bénéfices ? Pourquoi les clubs de football des petits pays arrivent-ils rarement à dépasser le stade des tours préliminaires de la Champions League ?
    Dix ans après le début de la crise financière et dix ans après la publication de son best-seller Econochoc, Geert Noels nous propose une nouvelle et audacieuse analyse de l'économie mondiale. Son diagnostic : notre monde souffre de gigantisme. Les entreprises et les organisations ne cessent de gagner en taille et en puissance, tuant la saine concurrence, créant une croissance non durable et mettant l'humain sous pression, avec comme conséquence la hausse du nombre de maladies dites de civilisation, comme le burn-out et l'obésité.
    Dans GIGANTISME, Geert Noels propose aussi dix solutions pour changer les règles du jeu économique, dompter les géants et rendre à l'humain et à l'environnement la place qui leur revient dans l'économie mondiale. Pour y arriver, nous n'avons pas d'autre choix que de mettre fin à la course au gigantisme et de privilégier la lenteur et le retour à un monde plus humain.

  • What if customers expect more than just a good product, excellent service and perfectly performing digital interfaces? And what if new technologies like 5G, artificial intelligence, quantum computing and robotics offer possibilities that go beyond mere ease of use?

    Digital ease of use is the new minimum. It has become a commodity. The customer now regards it as the most normal thing in the world to have access to limitless products and services with just a single click of a mouse. In the years ahead, companies will need to play an active role in the 'life journey' of customers: helping to make their dreams come true and removing problems from their daily lives. In addition, customers are looking increasingly to companies instead of governments to tackle societal challenges like climate change, health care and mobility.

    If your company succeeds in providing outstanding digital service, becomes a partner in the life of your customers and provides solutions for major societal issues, you will develop 'an offer you can't refuse'.

    When it comes to foreign visitors or artists, North Korea must be the most restrictive country in the world. Nevertheless, Carl De Keyzer managed to cross the entire country in 42 days, divided into three journeys. In his latest book, Magnum photographer Carl De Keyzer points his lens at North Korea, officially the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, the last communist state in the world from an ideological, political and cultural perspective.

    De Keyzer is one of very few photographers who get almost-unlimited access to the country. He photographed more than 200 different locations, many of which had never been captured on camera before. The 250 photos that form his 'Grand Tour' - taken on marches, at the shooting range, in the subway and in family homes - are a testament to this country's uniqueness.

  • In effective animation programming, one must be able to rely on theoretical knowledge as well as research-based insights in applicability. This updated version of Animation Maths contains an overview of both.

    In addition to exploring collision detection, it also puts forward a discussion of programmable kinematics. These physics of motion, designed to complement programming, offer an invaluable tool in adding realism to games and animations. Furthermore, screen effects and image handling are taken to a professional level by a detailed outline of all the basic transformations.

    The uniqueness of this book lies in its calculus-free approach. In order to cover the basics of the discipline, Animation Maths contains a brief summary of the fundamentals in arithmetics, solving systems and trigonometry. Animation Maths is accompanied by the website which contains online support and useful downloads.

    "Animation Maths achieves a perfect balance between deductive mathematics and broad accessibility, particularly through its interactive companion site." Leo Storme (Pure Mathematics and Computer Algebra, UGent) "With Animation Maths, Ivo De Pauw and Bieke Masselis present motion related mathematical subjects, ranging from trigonometry to quaternions and kinematics in an understandable fashion. It's a true game developers toolkit." Fries Carton (Guerrilla Games, Amsterdam)
