Very few cars inspire as much affection as the original Mini. It’s the small car everyone loves to eulogise because it oozes energetic fun, classless minimalism and evergreen style. But it’s also of massive historical importance: the 1959 Mini, designed by Alec Issigonis, set the template from which all successful compact cars have been created ever after. It was the technological wonder of its age. The original Mini was on sale for 41 years, during which its 5.3m sales made it the best-selling British car of all time – an achievement unlikely ever to be beaten. And just when it looked like the little car would shrivel and die, BMW had the vision to reinvent it as the planet’s most desirable small car range, and put it back on the serious motoring map as the MINI. Here, award-winning writer Giles Chapman tells the whole, amazing story.

In 2007 INTEROP-VLab defined Enterprise Interoperability as “the ability of an enterprise system or application to interact with others at a low cost with a flexible approach”. Enterprise Interoperability VI brings together a peer reviewed selection of over 40 papers, ranging from academic research through case studies to industrial and administrative experience of interoperability. It shows how, in a scenario of globalised markets, the capacity to cooperate with other firms efficiently becomes essential in order to remain in the market in an economically, socially and environmentally cost-effective manner, and that the most innovative enterprises are beginning to redesign their business model to become interoperable. This goal of interoperability is vital, not only from the perspective of the individual enterprise but also in the new business structures that are now emerging, such as supply chains, virtual enterprises, interconnected organisations or extended enterprises, as well as in mergers and acquisitions. Establishing efficient and relevant collaborative situations requires managing interoperability from a dynamic perspective: a relevant and efficient collaboration of organizations might require adaptation to remain in line with potentially changing objectives, evolving resources, and unexpected events, for example. Many of the papers contained in this, the seventh volume of Proceedings of the I-ESA Conferences have examples and illustrations calculated to deepen understanding and generate new ideas. The I-ESA’14 Conference is jointly organised by Ecole des Mines Albi-Carmaux, on behalf of PGSO, and the European Virtual Laboratory for Enterprise Interoperability (INTEROP-VLab) and supported by the International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP). A concise reference to the state of the art in systems interoperability, Enterprise Interoperability VI will be of great value to engineers and computer scientists working in manufacturing and other process industries and to software engineers and electronic and manufacturing engineers working in the academic environment.

While driving with your friends or family someplace far from home, your radiator starts steaming. You manage to find a gas station in a small town where they can fix your car, but it's going to take a few hours. You ask the mechanic if there's any place to get something to eat, and he points across the road to Moe's Cafe, a real dump. You don't have much choice, so you head inside and take a seat at the first booth on the left. So begins Moe's Cafe, one of 48 innovative and intriguing prompts for student writing. These classroom-tested prompts put students in a place or in front of a character and ask them to describe what they see. The thinking, writing, and scribbling they do for the prompts inspires them to create their own stories and poems. After writing 90-word mini-stories, students read a short story or watch a film scene to help them expand on their own creative works. A section of longer readings models writing strategies. The lessons and activities reinforce and develop skills defined by the National Council of Teachers of English as appropriate for students in grades 6-12. Good Year.

El minicuento o microrrelato es un género literario que pocos escritores dominan, pero que la mayoría, en algún momento dado, ha querido experimentar. Tal es el grado de dificultad de este arte, dedicado al impacto de la brevedad. En Minicuentos / Mini-Stories, Yorman Mejías nos deleita y nos asombra, no solo con la calidad de cada pieza, sino con la evidente rigurosidad que cada una conlleva, en cuanto a la técnica, en cuanto a la naturaleza misma del escrito y su precepto: lo que se ha de contar ha de ser contado con tan pocas palabras como sea posible sin sacrificar el mensaje a transmitirse. Sin dudas, el autor es uno de los pocos que dominan todos los aspectos de este difícil género literario. The mini-story or micro-story is a literary genre which few writers have mastered, but one which most, at some given moment have wanted to attempt. Such is the level of difficulty of this art dedicated to the impact of brevity. In Minicuentos / Mini-Stories, Yorman Mejías delights and amazes us, not only with the high quality of each narrative, but also with the evident rigor each one have been crafted, in terms of technique and the very concept each one entails: that which needs to be told is to be told with as few words as possible without sacrificing the message. Undoubtedly, the author is one of the few who have mastered all aspects of this complex literary genre.
