11h00 12h00 Les perssonnes, les lieux et les conscepts clefs de la Silicon Vallée : Secrets of Silicon Valley: What Everyone Else Can Learn from the Innovation Capital of the World with Deborah Perry Piscione : While the global economy languishes, one place just keeps growing despite failing banks, uncertain markets, and high unemployment: Silicon Valley. In the last two years, more than 100 incubators have popped up in the high-tech capital, and the number of angel investors has skyrocketed. Today, 40 percent of all venture capital investments in the United States come from Silicon Valley firms, compared to 10 percent from New York. In Secrets of Silicon Valley, entrepreneur and media commentator Deborah Perry Piscione takes us inside this vibrant ecosystem where meritocracy rules the day. She explores Silicon Valley’s exceptionally risk-tolerant culture, and why it thrives despite the many laws that make California one of the worst states in the union for business. Drawing on interviews with investors, entrepreneurs, and community leaders, as well as a host of case studies with technology and Internet companies, from Google to Paypal, Piscione argues that Silicon Valley’s unique culture is the best hope for the future of American prosperity and the global business community and offers lessons from the Valley to inspire reform in other communities and industries, from Washington, DC to Wall Street.

Le campus de l'Université de Stanford. Stanford University, located between San Francisco and San Jose in the heart of California's Silicon Valley, is one of the world's leading teaching and research universities. Since its opening in 1891, Stanford has been dedicated to finding solutions to big challenges and to preparing students for leadership in a complex world.  Standford as university is ranked first in the world in Social Science, Information Thechnology, Size of the campus, Amount of donations by year.
The Cantor Arts Center's diverse collections span continents, cultures, and 5,000 years of art history and include one of the largest presentations of Rodin bronzes outside Paris. For the past 50 years, Bay Area art collectors Harry and Mary Margaret Anderson have passionately assembled one of the most outstanding private collections of 20th-century post-war American art in the world. On September 21, more than 100 extraordinary works from their collection— donated to Stanford University—will be on view in a new museum adjacent to the Cantor Arts Center: the Anderson Collection at Stanford University. To celebrate its new neighbor, the Cantor presents an exhibition of spectacular Pop Art works on loan from SFMOMA’s own Anderson collection. The show, Pop Art from the Anderson Collection at SFMOMA, runs August 13, 2014 through October 26, 2015. Connie Wolf, the Cantor’s John & Jill Freidenrich Director, along with Janet Bishop, SFMOMA’s curator of painting and sculpture, arranged the loan in part so that SFMOMA can continue to display its collection while its building is closed for construction.  The 10 works in Pop Art include Robert Rauschenberg’s Collection; a silkscreen self-portrait by Andy Warhol; serial paintings of Rouen Cathedral by Roy Lichtenstein; James Rosenquist’s monumental painting Leaky Ride for Dr. Leakey; Robert Indiana’s iconic Love painting; and major works by Jim Dine, Jasper Johns and Claes Oldenburg. For a full list of works in the exhibition, see "Works in Pop Art from the Anderson Collection at SFMOMA". The university has constructed a permanent building exclusively for the collection within its expanding arts district. It is adjacent to Cantor Arts Center and the planned McMurtry Building for the Department of Art and Art History, and across Palm Drive from Bing Concert Hall and Frost Amphitheater. The addition of this remarkable art collection strengthens Stanford’s growing commitment to the arts and the connection between the study, creation and experience of art.

Duchesse d’Aquitaine, elle occupe une place centrale dans les relations entre les royaumes de France et d’Angleterre au xiie siècle : elle épouse successivement le roi de France Louis VII, à qui elle donne deux filles, puis Henri Plantagenêt, le futur roi d’Angleterre Henri II, renversant ainsi le rapport des forces en apportant ses terres à l’un puis à l’autre des deux souverains. À la cour fastueuse qu'elle tient en Aquitaine, elle favorise l'expression poétique des troubadours en langue d'oc. Depuis son premier mariage pendant lequel elle a participé à la deuxième croisade, elle joue un rôle politique important dans l’Occident.

Adress : 3150 El Camino Real Palo Alto, CA 94306 Our founders – a sport fisherman, and his business partner, boat captain and gourmet cook colleague – teamed up to open The Fish Market with one thought in mind, and that was to serve the freshest, highest-quality seafood available, simply prepared and served up at an honest price. Since then, our fleet has grown to six restaurants in California. The Fish Market offers an extensive seafood menu featuring fresh fish broiled just inches over the mesquite wood to seal in the flavor. We also offer shellfish specialties, chowders and cioppino, seafood cocktails, smoked fish and pasta appetizers, as well as salads and sandwiches. . With the brand new addition of an oyster bar, cocktail bar and lounge area, there are now even more ways to experience this unique restaurant. The retail market is a popular stop for local residents seeking to take home the finest in fresh fish. Signature items include made-from-scratch au gratin potatoes and cheesy garlic bread, as well as traditional sourdough bread that is served to all guests at the table. The menu’s emphasis is on freshness, high quality and the vast choices and selection afforded by a traditional seafood house.
