Emilia Clarke, of “Game of Thrones,” on Surviving Two Life-Threatening Aneurysms

But I kept at it. In school productions, I played Anita in “West Side Story,” Abigail in “The Crucible,” one of the witches in “Macbeth,” Viola in “Twelfth Night.” After secondary school, I took a gap year, during which I worked as a waitress and went backpacking in Asia. Then I started classes at the Drama Centre London to pursue my B.A. As fledgling actors, we studied everything from “The Cherry Orchard” to “The Wire.” I didn’t get the ingénue parts. Those went to the tall, willowy, impossibly blond girls. I got cast as a Jewish mother in “Awake and Sing!” You should hear my Bronx accent.

In those days, I thought of myself as healthy. Sometimes I got a little light-headed, because I often had low blood pressure and a low heart rate. Once in a while, I’d get dizzy and pass out. When I was fourteen, I had a migraine that kept me in bed for a couple of days, and in drama school I’d collapse once in a while. But it all seemed manageable, part of the stress of being an actor and of life in general. Now I think that I might have been experiencing warning signs of what was to come.

I could hardly catch my breath. I went back to the hotel, where some people invited me to a party on the roof. “I think I’m good!” I told them. Instead, I went to my room, ate Oreos, watched “Friends,” and called everyone I knew.

The “Game of Thrones” creators David Benioff and D. B. Weiss have said that Daenerys Targaryen is a blend of Napoleon, Joan of Arc, and Lawrence of Arabia.

Young Men Are Playing Video Games Instead of Getting Jobs. That's OK. (For Now.)

Games, with their endless task lists and character-leveling systems, their choice architectures and mission checklists, are purpose generators. They bring order to gamers' lives.

Video games, you might say, offer a sort of universal basic income for the soul.

There's a fine line between that psychology and good game design." This was true long before the rise of computer gaming. "People will never stop playing chess, because it's a great game. The discussions I hear are more about how can we keep these games interesting to keep playing."

One way to do that, it turns out, is to give people a sense of earned achievement. "What games are good at—what they are designed to do—is simulate being good at something," Wolpaw says.

Did all those hours playing games make me feel fulfilled? Did they make me feel as if I had made good decisions in my life? Yes—and no. At times, I found video games an entertainment experience as smart and satisfying as any novel or movie or television show I have ever absorbed. At other times, I have let go of my controller late at night, overcome by existential emptiness and the realization that I have, yet again, just spent the better part of a day engaged in an activity of no practical value to me or anyone else. I enjoy games, but not without some reservation. Sometimes I go weeks without playing. And if I had to choose between gaming and work, I know I'd pick the latter.

La clause Molière - Jacques Attali

le nationalisme se révèle dans la culture avant de s’exprimer dans la géopolitique.

parler français ne peut être un critère d’exclusion a priori ; cela doit être un résultat d’intégration a posteriori.

quand se protège des autres, il ne faut pas s’étonner que les autres en fassent autant et se protège de nous.

Si on veut que plus de gens parlent notre langue, ce qui est la clé de notre puissance future, et qu’ils viennent nous apporter leurs forces de travail et de création, il faut bien les recevoir en France ; en particulier imposer aux employeurs français que leurs employés étrangers reçoivent les mêmes salaires et les mêmes prestations sociales que leurs collègues français.

la réelle souveraineté n’est pas dans l’isolement et la fermeture. Elle est dans la confrontation pacifique et décomplexée aux autres, à leurs forces et à leurs talents.

Industrial Revolution Comparisons Aren't Comforting

The early to mid-19th century saw the rise of socialist ideologies, largely as a response to economic disruptions. Whatever mistakes Karl Marx made, he was a keen observer of the Industrial Revolution, and there is a reason he became so influential. He failed to see the long-run ability of capitalism to raise living standards significantly, but he understood and vividly described the transition costs and the economic volatility.

along the way the intellectual currents of the 19th century produced a lot of overreaction in other, more destructive directions. The ideas of Marx fed into the movements behind the Soviet Union, Communist China and the Khmer Rouge. Arguably, fascist doctrine also was in part a response to the disruptions of industrialization in the 19th and early 20th centuries.

an estimated 38 percent of the EU budget will be going to farm subsidies. Farms as a share of total employment are quite small (about 2 percent), but farmers as an interest group have not gone away, even hundreds of years after agricultural employment started to decline.

Professeurs un jour, mais pas pour toujours

Il y a dix ans, Sébastien Chauchot savait déjà qu’il ne s’y consacrerait pas « jusqu’au bout », alors même qu’il s’y était engagé avec conviction « pour la relation aux enfants, la polyvalence… »

Une décennie de direction d’école et d’« injonctions en tous sens » l’a convaincu qu’il ne réussirait pas à faire « bouger les choses ». Qu’il lui faudrait trouver ailleurs une reconnaissance dont la profession tout entière semble manquer.

« Des collègues n’anticipent pas le temps de travail, le sentiment d’envahissement, l’impact sur la vie privée, explique Francette Popineau. Face à ça, on n’est pas tous équipés pareil. Que certains dépassent l’état de désenchantement pour démissionner peut ne pas être vu seulement comme négatif. »

Dans une société où les engagements – politiques, syndicaux et même privés – se font plus au coup par coup, l’idée de se projeter professionnellement le temps d’une vie aurait presque, pour lui, un petit air démodé.

Mode d’emploi
Neighbouring countries on Europe’s southern fringe have far higher absolute levels of youth unemployment than France. Yet since the start of 2014 a loosening of labour laws has helped to bring down joblessness among the under-25s in both Spain and Italy (see chart). In France, by contrast, over the same period the figure has inched up to 26%—an all-time record. Youth unemployment in France is now over three times the rate in Germany.

“Technically we could cut the unemployment rate in half,” says Nicolas Bouzou, a French economist; “the difficulty is political.” Much of the French left regards ideas such as a lower minimum wage for younger workers, as Britain allows, to be exploitation, not a way into the job market—even though, by default, self-employed youngsters work for less than the statutory minimum. There is still a residual snobbery within the education system about vocational training. And France’s biggest unions, for all their revolutionary rhetoric, have become talented and conservative defenders of insider privileges, at the price of shutting too many young people out of decent jobs altogether.

For Immigrants, America Is Still More Welcoming Than Europe
Among the most notable is clearly Europe’s segmented labor market, difficult for newcomers to crack. In the United States, less-educated immigrants may work for little pay. But the vast majority of them work. The employment rate of immigrants is higher than that of natives. In Europe it is lower.

A report about the integration of immigrants issued over the summer by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development noted that more than a fifth of Europe’s immigrants from outside the European Union were unemployed, about double the rate of European Union citizens.

One in four of the economically active is out of work in France and one in three in Belgium and Sweden. And these poor employment prospects persist down the generations. Youth joblessness among the European-born children of immigrants is almost 50 percent higher than for those with native-born parents.

Employment is not the only barrier. Children from less-educated immigrant families are much less likely to succeed at school in Europe than the sons and daughters of natives, and much more likely to end up marginalized: out of school and out of work. Immigrants feel discriminated against more often in Europe. Perceived discrimination is particularly acute among the European-born children of immigrants, who in several countries still do not qualify for automatic citizenship.

In the United States, they write, “to be religious is to be in sync with mainstream norms.” Many Americans have more trouble accepting atheists than Muslims. In Europe, by contrast, “claims based on religion have much less acceptance and legitimacy.”

In June, President Obama hosted a Ramadan Iftar meal at the White House. In France, public schools still serve fish on Fridays. In some schools, the choice for Muslim children is pork or nothing.

The Economic Guide To Picking A College Major
There may also be a built-in risk premium: The energy industry is notorious for its boom-bust volatility, so there’s no guarantee that those newly minted petroleum engineers will still be pulling down six-figure salaries if oil prices suddenly crater.

In fact, there’s almost no correlation between how popular a major is and how lucrative it is. Psychology is far and away the most popular major despite paying a below-average median wage of $31,500. Highly paid engineering fields, meanwhile, are among the least popular fields of study.

How to Get a Job at Google -
the No. 1 thing we look for is general cognitive ability, and it’s not I.Q. It’s learning ability. It’s the ability to process on the fly. It’s the ability to pull together disparate bits of information. We assess that using structured behavioral interviews that we validate to make sure they’re predictive.”

What we care about is, when faced with a problem and you’re a member of a team, do you, at the appropriate time, step in and lead. And just as critically, do you step back and stop leading, do you let someone else? Because what’s critical to be an effective leader in this environment is you have to be willing to relinquish power.”

What we’ve seen is that the people who are the most successful here, who we want to hire, will have a fierce position. They’ll argue like hell. They’ll be zealots about their point of view. But then you say, ‘here’s a new fact,’ and they’ll go, ‘Oh, well, that changes things; you’re right.’ ” You need a big ego and small ego in the same person at the same time.

The world only cares about — and pays off on — what you can do with what you know (and it doesn’t care how you learned it). And in an age when innovation is increasingly a group endeavor, it also cares about a lot of soft skills — leadership, humility, collaboration, adaptability and loving to learn and re-learn. This will be true no matter where you go to work.

CONTROVERSE • Faut-il obliger les salariés à venir au bureau ? | Courrier international
En 1925, [l’entreprise de téléphonie américaine] AT&T a créé les Bell Laboratories, qui s’installèrent dans le New Jersey. C’était l’idée de Mervin Kelly, un chercheur devenu président de l’entreprise. Il croyait en la notion de “masse critique” – rassembler différents types de scientifiques et les encourager à se mêler les uns aux autres. L’endroit était conçu de telle sorte que ceux qui y travaillaient se croisaient en permanence. Les couloirs étaient longs – à dessein – pour que les rencontres y soient fréquentes et que des scientifiques de disciplines variées (physiciens, métallurgistes, électriciens, etc.) puissent apprendre les uns des autres.

On comprend que Marissa Mayer, la nouvelle PDG de Yahoo!, veuille tirer davantage de valeur de ceux qu’elle dirige. Signalons qu’un collaborateur de Google génère en moyenne 931 657 dollars de recettes annuelles, soit 160 % de plus qu’un collaborateur de Yahoo! (353 657 dollars).
