Seminar paper from the year 2019 in the subject Astronomy, grade: 2,00, Christian-Albrechts-University of Kiel, language: English, abstract: This article aims to show that the Hubble parameter is a time derivative of the Hubble constant. This is confirmed by three individual values from the empirical research: Value 1: The Hubble parameter in the neighborhood of the earth, Value 2: The Hubble parameter at the cosmic horizon and value 3: The Hubble parameter at half the age of the universe.It is developed an algorithm to calculate the Hubble parameter. With this algorithm, it is possible to make statements on the progress of the Hubble parameter in the future. On this way falling for the future of the Hubble parameter values are predicted.
Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2008 im Fachbereich Amerikanistik - Literatur, Note: 1,7, Christian-Albrechts-Universität Kiel (Englisches Seminar), Veranstaltung: Der amerikanische Süden: Antebellum und Bürgerkrieg, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: "Well, in the South we had so many servants. Gone, gone, gone. All vestige of gracious living! Gone completely! I wasn't prepared for what the future brought me." Tennessee, geboren als Thomas Lanier Williams in Columbus, Mississippi, im Jahre 1911, war einer der führenden amerikanischen Dramatiker seit dem zweiten Weltkrieg. Sein internationaler Ruhm basiert besonders auf dem Erfolg der beiden Stücke The Glass Menagerie und A Streetcar Named Desire. Sie wurden aufgeführt, verfilmt und sogar im Fernsehen ausgestrahlt. Nach der Aufführung dieser beiden Stücke waren Kritiker der Meinung, dass der Erfolg Williams zurückgegangen war. Seine letzten Stücke galten unter ihnen als Misserfolge. Zusammen mit den Werken von Autoren wie William Faulkner, Carson McCullers und Thomas Wolf wurden Tennessee Williams Stücke von den Traditionen und Legenden des "Old South" und der Realität eines aggressiven "New South" beeinflusst. In den beiden Stücken ist der amerikanische Süden der Ort der Handlung, und die Charaktere werden von der Geschichte und Kultur des Südens direkt beeinflusst. In der folgenden Arbeit sollen die beiden Stücke The Glass Menagerie und A Streetcar Named Desire von Tennessee Williams mit Hinblick auf die Handlung, die Charaktere, den Ort und deren Verbindung zum amerikanischen Süden analysiert werden.
Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2013 im Fachbereich BWL - Unternehmensführung, Management, Organisation, Note: 1,0, Christian-Albrechts-Universität Kiel (Applied economics of the firm), Veranstaltung: Risk and Entrepreneurship, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Friday, the 19th of October, 2012, the German newspaper "Handelsblatt" (Storbeck, 2012) titled: "Rethinking Economy". 15 young economists were introduced to be the new hope for economic science. One of them was Ulrike Malmendier whose first economic researches deal with managerial hubris. Introducing her is proofing the importance of a new economic domain called "behavioural economics". As a behavioural economist Malmendier criticises the "homo-economicus"-model and the idea of people acting entirely rational. In fact, people constantly display irrational behaviour that results out of cognitive biases (that distort their perception) and also results out of simple, but biased decision rules (heuristics) that the human mind implies. One of those cognitive biases is that people seem to be unreasonable overconfident. The study of overconfidence is originated in the psychological literature. Because of it's great impact on the behaviour of economic actors, it recently influences economic and finance literature (Benoît, Dubra, 2011) and significantly shapes the research activity in behavioural economics. The task of this essay is to critically analyse the role of overconfidence in a special economic domain: business entry decisions. The text is structured as follows:The first section shortly deals with the domain of business entry failures. In the subsequent chapters, overconfidence is introduced as a possible explanation. It is to explain what overconfidence is and how it arises. The text then reviews the paper of Camerer and Lovallo (1999) and critically analyses overconfidence as an explanation for excess entry and high rates of business failure. At last, it will take a further look at the future research tasks.
High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Ulrich Schnauss (born 1977) is an electronic musician and producer based in Germany. Ulrich Schnauss was born in the northern German seaport of Kiel in 1977. He became interested in a range of music: My Bloody Valentine, Slowdive, Tangerine Dream, Chapterhouse, and early bleep & breakbeat tracks. There was not much opportunity to see his musical influences in Kiel, so he moved to Berlin in 1996.Ulrich's musical output began under the pseudonyms of View to the Future and Ethereal 77. These electronica and drum-driven pieces were noticed by Berlin electronica label CCO (City Centre Offices), to which Schnauss sent CD's on a regular basis. Ulrich developed these submissions to CCO into his first album under his own name, Far Away Trains Passing By, released in Europe in 2001, and in the United States in 2005.
Bachelor Thesis from the year 2012 in the subject Business economics - Offline Marketing and Online Marketing, grade: 1,3, Christian-Albrechts-University of Kiel, language: English, abstract: Selling and buying behavior in business to business markets has rapidly changed over the past decades as markets become more competitive, technology evolves fast and customer expectations have changed. Thus, the focus changed from the buyer or seller to being the sole individual responsible for handling business relationships. Nowadays, everybody in a company who can provide an input to the process is actively involved as the boundaries of different horizontal and vertical levels are fading which used to determine the scope of responsibility in the past. Therefore, the general terms of 'Buying Center' and 'Selling Center' have become important as they define the people being involved in a purchase. The aim of this dissertation is to provide an overview of the significant determinants of a buying and a selling center, the roles the individuals play in a purchase and the influences on buying and selling behavior on different levels. Additionally, the buying and selling process and the collaboration of the respective centers in the process are being considered. The first chapter focuses on the major changes of selling and buying in the past decades. Chapter three provides the general definitions of B2B markets, the goods being purchased and the terms of buying and selling centers. In addition, the major characteristics that determine a buying situation are being described. In the subsequent chapters, buying and selling behavior is being analyzed separately. Hence, chapter four outlines the roles in a buying center and analyzes who is likely to occupy these roles. After that, a model of the buying decision process is established to illustrate who is involved at which stage. With the purpose of surveying the preliminarily established assumptions of buying behavior, an interview with a buyer is conducted. At the end of the fourth chapter, the findings are summarized and implications for further research are provided. The fifth chapter elaborates the selling side of a purchase. Implications from the fourth chapter are included as the roles of the selling center and the seller's decision process are depicted. Subsequently, analogue to the previous chapter, theory is revised on the base of an interview with a selling agent. In the sixth chapter the two sides of a purchase and their members are considered jointly. Concluding, the key findings are outlined, implications for the management are evolved and recommendations for potential future research are made.
Master's Thesis from the year 2011 in the subject Nature Protection, Landscape Conservation, grade: 1,3, Christian-Albrechts-University of Kiel (Institut für Natur- und Ressourcenschutz Abteilung Landschaftsökologie), course: Environmental Management, Umweltmanagement, language: English, abstract: The stock of the European brown hare (Lepus europaeus PALLAS, 1778) is declining since decades, in Germany as well as in other European countries.At the same time,the occurrence of European brown hares is a new phenomenon in urban areas. Hence,Lichtenberg, a city district of Berlin, the capital of Germany, even assumed a special responsibility for its new inhabitants.Whereas a method for the quantification of this common game species in agricultural areas already exists, a new quantification method for city habitats is required in order to overcome several limitations. The aim of this master thesis is to deliver a suitable quantification method for Lepus europaeus, which can be applied by nature conservation authorities in future.By means of a strong LED torchlight and a bike, 153.74 ha of green area, which is usually scattered between residential buildings, were investigated in the style of the previous "spotlight taxation". These investigated areas belong to five different tracks. Each trackwas investigated three times in the late evening hours in the spring period from 8th of March until the 25th of April 2011. Within this time 37 sightings of hares have been made. Summing up the five maximum values from each of the 3 countings, one could assume that at least 17 hares live within the illuminated area. Considering the territorial behaviour, even a minimum number of 19 hares is probable. If additionally only suitable tracks are taken into account, a density of 16.98 hares/100 ha can be calculated - asurprisingly high value compared to the results of spotlight counting in surrounding federal states, where the agricultural landscape, and therefore the natural habitat of Lepus europaeus, is more prevalent. However, a direct comparison to the hare densities inthe open landscape, which are obtained by means of different methods is incorrect. Nevertheless, if the proposed aspects for a future implementation will be taken into consideration in the long run, it is a realisable method for the quantification of urban hare populations. Moreover, the interested public can participate on this scientific approach as well. Then, cost reduction and the rising awareness for wild animals in the public are positive side-effects.
Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. "To Ramona" is a folk waltz written by Bob Dylan for his fourth studio album, Another Side of Bob Dylan. The song is one of the many on the album to highlight the more personal, and less political, side of Dylan''s songwriting that would become evermore prominent in the future. The song also makes many allusions to Dylan''s personal relationship with fellow folk singer Joan Baez, at the time of its composition and subsequent release. In Rightwing Bob A.J. Weberman states that the song is about Chloe Kiel, who Dylan wrote about in Chronicles: "Chloe, a Southern girl with Northern blood" as Ramona contains the line "returning back to the South." It is another example of the G, G6, G7 melodic motif Dylan uses pervasively on the record. A cover version of the song was recorded by The Flying Burrito Brothers on their 1971 self-titled album.
