READING: Döstädning is het Zweedse gebruik om je materiële bezittingen te ordenen tegen het einde van je leven. Het is een manier om je nabestaanden nergens mee op te zadelen, maar ook een ritueel dat je helpt om te reflecteren op je leven - of dat nou binnenkort op zijn einde loopt of nog bij lange na niet. Wat laat je achter aan materiële bezittingen als je er zelf niet meer bent? Wat zegt dat over jou? En zou je daar dan maar niet beter zelf de regie in nemen? Door de erfstukken te scheiden van de rommel, orden je ook de waardevolle herinneringen. Opruimen voor je doodgaat is een praktische gids die je helpt inventariseren wat écht belangrijk is, om zo comfortabel en stressvrij mogelijk met je bezittingen om te gaan. Margareta Magnusson bespreekt het proces van herinneren, ouder worden en de dood op verrassend vrolijke wijze, en laat zien dat döstädning een ontroerende en waardevolle methode is die jou of iemand die je liefhebt kan helpen om al het geluk te vieren dat een mens in een leven verzamelt.

READING: Weergaloze, zeer lovend ontvangen roman van Laurent Binet, auteur van HhhH Parijs, 1980. De beroemde filosoof Roland Barthes wordt in het Quartier Latin door een vrachtwagen overreden en overlijdt. Politiecommissaris Bayard krijgt opdracht de zaak te onderzoeken. Hij is er al snel van overtuigd dat Barthes vermoord is: de filosoof heeft een manuscript nagelaten waarin hij beschrijft wat de zevende functie is van taal en meerdere mensen zitten erachteraan. Het onderzoek voert Bayard langs alle grote Franse schrijvers, denkers en politici. Met veel humor en vaart speelt Binet in deze weergaloze roman zijn bekende spel met feit en fictie, tegen de achtergrond van de veelbewogen jaren tachtig, toen intellectueel Parijs nog het centrum van de wereld was. De pers over De zevende functie van taal ‘Een weergaloos misdaadverhaal.’ Elsevier ‘De zevende functie van taal is een spannende taalkundige thriller, een wervelende avonturenroman, een vermakelijke satire en een metaroman ineen, waarin een ragfijn spel wordt gespeeld met waarheid en fictie.’ **** De Standaard ‘Een literaire James Bond en tegelijkertijd een hilarisch portret van de grote Franse intellectuelen uit die tijd.’ NRC Handelsblad

READING: In August 1979 twenty-seven-year-old Mike Trueman set sail from the south-west coast of Wales, en route to Cornwall. The young army helicopter pilot was helping to move his friend's yacht from Northern Ireland to the south coast of England. But as they sailed out into the Irish Sea, the sky turned progressively darker and the winds gathered pace. Over the next twenty-four hours the two young sailors battled to survive force-10 gales in what became known as the Fastnet disaster and which claimed the lives of fifteen sailors off the coast of Ireland. Almost seventeen years later, Trueman was at Camp 2 at 6,400 metres on Mount Everest as the May 1996 tragedy unfolded high above him. As stricken guides, clients and Sherpas tried to survive the fierce storms which engulfed the upper mountain, Trueman was able to descend and - using his twenty-four years of experience as an officer in the British Army - coordinate the rescue effort from Base Camp. The Storms is the remarkable memoir of a British Army Gurkha officer. Trueman, a veteran of twenty expeditions to the Himalaya, gives a candid account of life inside expeditions to the highest mountain in the world. He gives a unique personal perspective on the 1996 Everest storm, as well as on the fateful day in May 1999 when Briton Mike Matthews disappeared high on the mountain after he and Trueman had summited.

A Viking ship, mob henchmen and ladies of the evening all took up residence in the same part of town where Dwight L. Moody went from selling soles to saving souls. Thanks to a Confederate ferryboat crewman, many of Lincoln's personal effects belong to the neighborhood named after him. Patrick Butler uncovers Lincoln Park's forgotten contributions to Chicago's heritage, from the "Pleasure Wheel" on Navy Pier to the city's cycling craze.

READING: Modern organisations are subject to continual change - technologies evolve, organisational structures are modified, people and underlying cultures are transformed. Yet the facilities that organisations occupy are static and can impede the changes that are essential to organisational survival. The response to change in terms of property and support services is often too little too late - leading to facilities that do not support organisational reality. The facilities management team is thus constantly challenged to bridge the gap between what an organisation has and what it needs. Facilities Change Management is a practical evaluation of the management of change for facilities managers and related professions. It considers: the forces of change affecting facilities decisions the obstacles to change at a resource level and human level the effective implementation of change the human aspect of change Each of these is considered in relation to modern facilities management issues. The discussion will enable practising facilities managers, project managers, surveyors, service providers and architects to understand, engage with and manage facilities change effectively at a strategic level. Through real-life case studies it demonstrates the complexities of change and hidden elements of change that may undermine carefully planned projects.
