L’association Normandie salsa multiplie les cours, les stages et les soirées dans les bars et les salles caennaises. Pour son « Normandie salsa festival », elle organise cinq jours « 100% salsa » à travers la ville.
Dans la salle de répétition de la MJC du quartier caennais du Calvaire-Saint-Pierre, la vingtaine de bénévoles de l’association Normandie salsa s’activent. Depuis plusieurs mois, ils préparent avec acharnement leur Normandie salsa festival.
« On se retrouve chaque dimanche pour organiser l’événement : décors, mise en place des stages, recherche de partenaires… », raconte Nicolas Defortescu, le président de l’association.
Au départ, en 2005, l’association organisait à chaque fin d’année scolaire Les nuits torrides, une soirée salsa au Cargö, la salle de musiques actuelles caennaise. Lors de la troisième année, Les nuits torrides se sont transformées en un véritable festival, proposant de la salsa sur plusieurs jours. Cette année, pour la première fois, le festival se déroulera sur cinq jours, avec, en têtes d’affiche, le DJ Gilles Peterson, ce 21 juin, et le groupe de musique salsa de Miami Timbalive, ce vendredi 24 juin.
« Ils sont connus dans le monde entier et se classent 3e dans le Top 50 Latino. »
Suivront des compagnies de danse latine en provenance de République Dominicaine Dominican Power, d’Italie, avec Tropical Gem, du Chili avec Maria & Giorgio ou encore d’Espagne…
« Nous avons une programmation de qualité, accessible aussi bien aux danseurs confirmés qu’aux novices de salsa », souligne Aline Turquin, professeure de salsa au sein de l’association.
Les soirées se dérouleront au Cargö, avec à disposition, une grande piste de danse en plein air ! Et le dimanche, ce sera danse libre sur la plage de Lion-sur-Mer !
Apprenez en 40 minutes !
De nombreux stages seront également proposés.
« En 40 minutes, vous pouvez apprendre les pas de base de la salsa et vous faire plaisir », insiste Aline Turquin. « On estime à environ 800 le nombre de danseurs de salsa à Caen. C’est énorme ! », s’enthousiasme-t-elle. « Nous souhaiterions faire de Caen une capitale de la salsa, ajoute Nicolas Defortescu. Il y a un réel potentiel ! Si on aime la salsa, on peut pratiquement en faire tous les soirs à Caen, que ce soit à l’Orient Express, au Che, ou encore à la Fabrique, à Lion-sur-Mer. »
D’ailleurs, les 19 et 20 février derniers, Caen avait accueilli le rassemblement de salsa de tout l’Ouest, avec près de 800 personnes.
« Nous projetons également d’organiser une nuit de la salsa au Zénith… », dévoile Aline Turquin.
Pratique : Mardi 21 juin : 20h30 : DJ Gilles Peterson au Cargö, 9 cours Caffarelli, à Caen. C’est gratuit.
Jeudi 23 juin : Initiations aux percussions et aux chants pour les scolaires, au Cargö.
Vendredi 24 juin : 20h : Timbalive + DJs + danse au Cargö. Tarifs : 19 à 21 euros.
Samedi 25 juin : 10-18h : stages à la MJC du Calvaire-Saint-Pierre, 7 rue de la Défense passive, à Caen. Tarif : 1 stage = 15 euros. 20h : Tropical Gem, Dominican Power, Big Spenders, Los Bailadores, Maria & Giorgio, Typical Mambo + DJs + danse, au Cargö. Tarifs : 22 à 24 euros.
Dimanche 26 juin : 11h à 16h15 : stages sur la plage de Lion-sur-Mer. 15h30 : danse libre. Tél : 06 75 37 31 96.

Information literacy for scientists and engineers: experiences of EDUCATE and DEDICATE
NANCY FJÄLLBRANT
Abstract
This paper introduces the concept of information literacy and describes the impact of information technology on information literacy. The European Union funded EDU-CATE project addressed the subject-related aspects of information literacy for scientists and engineers. One outcome of the project was a series of modules covering ways of accessing and searching information that could be used in formal courses, distance learning courses or for self-instruction. EDUCATE ‘spawned' a number of other projects. One, DEDICATE, deals with distance education information courses and is described in the paper along with brief details of its use in various universities in Central and Eastern Europe.
The nicest child I never knew
Was
Charles Augustus Fortesque
He sought when it was in his power

IATUL News Vol. 8. 1999, No. 4.

BOOK REVIEW
The Impact of Information on Society. An examination of its nature value and usage
Michael W. Hill.
Bowker-Saur, London, 1999. 292pp.
ISBN 1-85739-124-1
Price: £49

I found the book The Impact of Information on Society one of the most interesting books that I have read in recent years. The author Michael Hill, who trained as a chemist, and later became an information specialist, and former Director of the British Library's Science Reference Library in London, and previous Vice-President of IATUL, has examined the nature of information from the perspective of his own long experience. His aim has been “to ask what is information, why does it have the role it does and is it merely increase or fundamental change in that role which makes some people claim that we are entering an information age.”
After an introduction, comes the second chapter on
The nature of information and knowledge that treated on the concepts of data, information and knowledge and their relationships to each other in considerable depth. This was followed by Chapter 3 – The quality and reliability of information - important to all potential users, and Chapters 4 and 5 on the related topics of Comprehending and Communicating. After these fundamental first chapters, the author goes on to a more application oriented series of chapters, which begins with Chapter 6 - Some aspects of information knowledge and document management.
Michael Hill has spent many years dealing with issues such as copyright and intellectual property, and he can draw on a wealth of experience in the next three chapters: 7 –
Information ethics: expectations and rights, 8 – Information ethics: duties and responsibilities, and 9 – Information ethics: intellectual property and data protection. The ethical issues surrounding the ownership of information and the rights of individuals both as users and producers of information are discussed in detail. The rights of employees are described. Intellectual property and data protection covers patents, copyright, copyright and electronic publishing (a thorny issue as many of us know), the right to withhold or restrict the use of personal information, and data protection legislation.
Chapter 10 examines
Some social and cultural issues and covers a wide range of issues including Personal information, The media and society, Advertising, Support and advice: social services, Lifestyle, Health and diet and Communicating socially. The following Chapter 11 deals with Economic factors.
Chapter 12 is about an area in which information has had a particularly important impact –
Information and the environment. Chapter 13 deals with Education now and in the next decade. It begins with the delightful quotation from Hilaire Belloc´s Cautionary tales and other verses:

  • The nicest child I ever knew
  • Was Charles Augustus Fortesque
  • He sought when it was in his power
  • For information twice an hour.
This chapter deals with fundamental issues in Information Literacy, such as Who teaches the teachers? the Problems of the poorly educated, and Learning or learning to use? Michael Hill concludes that “the complexity of life is increasing, … the extent of knowledge needed to cope is increasing, and the nature of the skills is changing. Lifelong learning appears to be essential for everyone. Learning to use information technologies is a key requirement…Learning to handle, evaluate and exploit information, both new and old is essential both for the short term and the long term future.
Chapter 14 is about
Information in politics and government in which the politics of information and the state of national information policies are explored. The concluding Chapter15 - takes a look at The information society: are we a part of it and where is it heading? The author makes the daring (?) assumption that enthusiasm for using the terms information this and information that will become unfashionable, but that the importance and impact of information will remain and new information will continually affect the various aspects of our lifestyle. I will conclude that this book has the potential to affect the thinking, not only of librarians and information specialists, but also of politicians, scientists and members of the general public.

Selected verses from Cautionary Tales for Children by Hillaire Belloc

 

Charles Augustus Fortescue, Who always Did what was Right, and so accumulated an Immense Fortune.   Charles Augustus Fortescue
The nicest child I ever knew Was Charles Augustus Fortescue. He never lost his cap, or tore His stockings or his pinafore: In eating Bread he made no Crumbs, He was extremely fond of sums, To which, however, he preferred The Parsing of a Latin Word-- He sought, when it was within his power, For information twice an hour, And as for finding Mutton-Fat Unappatising, far from that! He often, at his Father's Board, Would beg them, of his own accord, To give him, if they did not mind, The Greasiest Morsels they could find-- His Later Years did not belie The Promise of his Infancy. In Public Life he always tried To take a judgement Broad and Wide; In Private, none was more than he Renowned for quiet courtesy. He rose at once in his Career, And long before hus Fortieth Year Had wedded Fifi, Only Child Of Bunyan, First Lord Aberfylde. He thus became immensely Rich, And built the Splendid Mansion which Is called The Cedars, Muswell Hill, Where he resides in affluence still, To show what everybody might Become by SIMPLY DOING RIGHT.

Kevin Purcell reviews and comments

Kevin Purcell has sought the cultural and musicological tradition in the art and practice of conducting. He deems himself fortunate to have learned from some of the finest teachers around the world, each noted for his interpretation of particular composers. Kevin has always felt such apprenticeship to be of paramount importance in the development of a young conductor.
Who better to study under than

  • Georg Tintner, the student of Felix Weingartner, for the BEETHOVEN symphonies.
  • Myer Fredman, of Glyndebourne and the Australian Opera, for the opera repertoire of MOZART, PUCCINI and RICHARD STRAUSS.
  • Gerald Gentry, BBC Staff Conductor for over 20 years, for the English music repertoire.
  • Dr. Otakar Trhlík, Professor of Conducting at the Janáckova Akademie Múzickych v Umeni in Brno, for the Czech repertoire.
In 1991 Kevin was awarded an international scholarship to study Russian music, especially the complete symphonies of TCHAIKOVSKY and SHOSTAKOVICH, with Leonid Nikolaev, Professor of Conducting at the Moscow Conservatoire.
Formal studies in composition and pianoforte were undertaken in Australia with such noted teachers as Brenton Broadstock, Barry Conyngham and Patricia Leslie. Most of Kevin's symphonic works have been recorded and broadcast for the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.
"The whole concert had a wonderful energy about it, which came from Music Director Kevin Purcell's dynamic leadership, and his obvious rapport with the musicians."

Lyman Leathers, Gazette Music Critic The Delaware Gazette, February 2000

"Finally, the conductor - how fortunate COSO must feel to have Kevin Purcell as its conductor. This was my first opportunity to see Mr. Purcell on the podium and his outstanding ability was inspiring to watch."

Nancy S. Nocks, On Site Review, Ohio Arts Council, February 2000

"Purcell conducts the 24-piece orchestra with crystalline clarity, lilting rhythm and passion"

Michael Grossberg, Theater Critic, Columbus Dispatch, USA

"Last Saturday I had the opportunity to once again see...'A Little Night Music'. It was outstanding..as good, or better, than most on- and off-Broadway productions I've seen over the years"

Roger Morris, President, Columbus/Franklin County News Bureau

A special note of thanks to Steve Graham who was the driving force behind this project. Steve kept the project alive by badgering the rest of us to send in our songs ;) and toiled countless hours to weave our tapes into "Every Voice But Mine." Thanks Steve!
