We work to the point of extreme exhaustion. Everyone is just too rushed, hurried, and stressed. We alleviate our stress by using coping mechanisms that could potentially harm us - shopping for more stuff, binge eating, and engaging in time-wasting activities such as playing video games or even gossiping. We fill our lives with needless activities, relationships, and clutter. This makes us lose sense of who we really are and what's important to us. This is the reason why the Japanese people have developed a lifestyle that strips away the inessential things in their lives. It's called minimalism.

In this book, you'll find proven strategies and step by step guide on how to practice minimalism.

Facade Refurbishment Toolbox: Supporting the Design of Residential Energy Upgrades (B/W version) (A+BE | Architecture and the Built Environment)

The starting point of the research is the need to refurbish existing residential building stock, in order to reduce its energy demand, which accounts for over one fourth of the energy consumption in the European Union. Refurbishment is a necessary step to reach the ambitious energy and decarbonisation targets for 2020 and 2050 that require an eventual reduction up to 90% in CO2 emissions. In this context, the rate and depth of refurbishment need to grow. The number of building to be renovated every year should increase, while the energy savings in renovated buildings should be over 60% reduction to current energy demand. To achieve that, not only is it necessary to find politics and incentives, but also to enable the building industry to design and construct effective refurbishment strategies. This research focuses on refurbishment of the building envelope, as it is very influential with regard to energy reduction.

Exploring Cultural Identities in Jean Rhys' Fiction

Exploring Cultural Identities in Jean Rhys' Writings seeks to circumscribe Jean Rhys' work within a paradigm that reflects the search for a cultural identity so specific to postcolonial literature. The book carries out an examination of the relationship between hybrid identities, self and otherness and of several situations of existential ambivalence that work on the border between sign (colonial difference) and symbol (imperial authority).
