Texas Motor Speedway. They do everything big in Texas. The Great American Racetrack is no exception as a state of the art facility with every amenity an experienced race fan needs. The NASCAR boys love it. The one and a half mile tri-oval with 24 degree banked corners makes for multi-grooved, close quarter, high-speed combat. It is also wicked fast with flat-foot qualifying speeds in the high 190's. Every team knows if you're going to wear that cowboy hat and fire those six guns in the winner's circle, you better bring your "A" game because you got your work cut out for you. The Orly Mann Racing Team has been here before, but this race is different. The Chase for the Championship is getting tight. Three races to go. Orly's sitting in second place, just a few points off the lead. The Kid, T.K. Kittridge, is hanging tough in fourth with a real chance to move the Blue Saber to the front. Texas has been good to the Orly Mann Team, but things start to unravel. The Blue Saber crew chief goes down, leaving Bear with a tough decision. Orly decides to do some testing... with dire results. A greedy voice from the past shows up, causing big trouble for the team. Paolo, Doug and Alicia face difficult choices. It takes a kid named Silas Biggs to put things in perspective. When the green flag finally drops...well, winner take all!

This book offers a complete and detailed account of the evolution of an internationally successful, evidence-based program that has been the result of almost two decades of action research into conflict and bullying. It addresses one of the most serious problems encountered in schools and work places worldwide: that of bullying and inter-personal conflict. The book presents a comprehensive account of the research, development and refinement of the DRACON Project and the Acting Against Bullying and Cooling Conflicts programs. The effective strategies that emerged from the extensive international research and practice use a combination of theories of conflict and bullying management with drama techniques and peer teaching which have been unique in their application. The book analyses their evolution into an effective program that has impacted positively on bullying and conflict in a number of settings. In the UK the program successfully addressed behavioural problems amongst girls in schools through the use of peer teaching in a drama setting. In Sweden the program assists nursing students, nurses and other health professionals to deal with conflict in the workplace. In Australia it has been applied in hundreds of schools to reduce bullying and assist newly arrived refugees to deal with cultural conflict and develop resilience and self- identity in their new country. This volume makes a major and authentic contribution to the international effort to find effective strategies and techniques to deal with interpersonal conflict and bullying across a range of contexts.

Wer glaubt, dass ihn die Mechanismen der Macht nicht interessieren müssten, kann morgen ihr Opfer sein. Wer behauptet, dass Macht auch auf sanftem Weg erreichbar ist, verkennt die Wirklichkeit. Dieses Buch ist der Machiavelli des 21. Jahrhunderts, aber auch eine historische und literarische Fundgrube voller Überraschungen.

Uncertainty could be associated with wisdom, enterprise, and discovery. In ordinary speech, however, it has mostly negative connotations. There is "fear of the unknown" and "ignorance is bliss;" there are maxims to the effect that "what you don't know doesn't hurt you" (or: "bother you") in several languages. This volume suggests that we need be bothered by the excessive confidence with which scientists, particularly social scientists, present some of their conclusions and overstate their range of application. Otherwise many of the questions that should be raised about all the major uncertainties attending a particular issue routinely may continue to be thwarted or suppressed. Down playing uncertainty does not lead to more responsible or surer action, it sidetracks research agendas, and leaves the decision makers exposed to nasty surprise. This volume demonstrates that recognizing the many forms of uncertainty that enter into the development of any particular subject matter is a precondition for more responsible choice and deeper knowledge. Our purpose is to contribute to a broader appreciation of uncertainty than regularly accorded in any of the numerous disciplines represented here. The seventeenth-century French philosopher Descartes, quoted in this volume, wrote that "whoever is searching after truth must, once in his life, doubt all things; insofar as this is possible. " White areas left on maps of the world in past centuries were a much more productive challenge than marking the end of the known world with the pillars of Hercules.

Sie erlebte hautnah mit, wie Robots zum alltäglichen Bestandteil der menschlichen Kultur wurden und welche Probleme es mit sich bringt, wenn Menschen mit Robotern zusammenleben. Vor allem aber stellt sich eine Frage: Was passiert, wenn sich Mensch und Roboter kaum noch voneinander unterscheiden?

This book is concerned with discontinuous groups of motions of the unique connected and simply connected Riemannian 3-manifold of constant curva ture -1, which is traditionally called hyperbolic 3-space. This space is the 3-dimensional instance of an analogous Riemannian manifold which exists uniquely in every dimension n :::: 2. The hyperbolic spaces appeared first in the work of Lobachevski in the first half of the 19th century. Very early in the last century the group of isometries of these spaces was studied by Steiner, when he looked at the group generated by the inversions in spheres. The ge ometries underlying the hyperbolic spaces were of fundamental importance since Lobachevski, Bolyai and Gauß had observed that they do not satisfy the axiom of parallels. Already in the classical works several concrete coordinate models of hy perbolic 3-space have appeared. They make explicit computations possible and also give identifications of the full group of motions or isometries with well-known matrix groups. One such model, due to H. Poincare, is the upper 3 half-space IH in JR . The group of isometries is then identified with an exten sion of index 2 of the group PSL(2,

Alles ist Illusion – Margaret Atwoods Verneigung vor dem großen Bühnenmagier William Shakespeare Felix ist ein begnadeter Theatermacher und in der Szene ein Star. Seine Inszenierungen sind herausfordernd, aufregend, legendär. Nun will er Shakespeares „Der Sturm“ auf die Bühne bringen. Das soll ihn noch berühmter machen – und ihm helfen, eine private Tragödie zu vergessen. Doch nach einer eiskalten Intrige seiner engsten Mitarbeiter zieht sich Felix zurück, verliert sich in Erinnerungen und sinnt auf Rache. Die Gelegenheit kommt zwölf Jahre später, als ein Zufall die Verräter in seine Nähe bringt. In ihrem brillanten Roman schafft die große kanadische Autorin Margaret Atwood mit der Figur des Theaterdirektors Felix ein würdiges Pendant zu Shakespeares Prospero aus „Der Sturm“, jenes Zauberers, der als ein Selbstporträt des alternden Barden aus Stratford-on-Avon gilt.
