Obwohl Sport und Freizeit als Gegenpol zu Arbeit und Beruf - und damit auch die Sportzeitschrift - immer mehr an Bedeutung gewinnen, gibt es nur wenige wissenschaftliche Untersuchungen daruber. Die wenigen, die es gibt, beschaftigen sich fast ausschliesslich mit dem Thema Fussball. Dieses Buch soll einen Uberblick uber den Wandel der Sportsprache anhand des deutschen Basketballjournalismus' geben. Dabei werden die Eigenheiten der Sprache, die in Sportzeitschriften bzw. im Basketball zu finden sind, herausgearbeitet. Untersuchungsobjekt ist die Sportzeitschrift 'Basketball'. Die analysierten Texte entstammen der Zeit von 1955 bis 2003. In der Zeit nach dem Kriegsende 1945 und mit Grundung der BRD kam es zu einer zunehmenden Technisierung und Verwissenschaftlichung der deutschen Sprache und zu einem starken Anwachsen der Fachsprachen, die die Standardsprache beeinflussen. Ausserdem hat in der BRD auch das Englische starken Einfluss genommen. In wie weit diese Tendenzen auch die Sprache des Sportjournalismus' beeinflussen, ist Gegenstand des vorliegenden Buches. Hypothesen und Ergebnisse aus Untersuchungen uber die tagesaktuelle Presse werden mit den hier gewonnenen Erkenntnissen verglichen und Unterschiede bzw. Gemeinsamkeiten zwischen der Sportzeitschrift und der tagesaktuellen Presse dargelegt. Die sich zeigenden Veranderungen treffen nicht nur fur diesen engen Sprachbereich zu, sondern gelten haufig auch fur die gesamte Sport- bzw. Medienlandscha

Handbook of Applied Multivariate Statistics and Mathematical Modeling

Multivariate statistics and mathematical models provide flexible and powerful tools essential in most disciplines. Nevertheless, many practicing researchers lack an adequate knowledge of these techniques, or did once know the techniques, but have not been able to keep abreast of new developments. The Handbook of Applied Multivariate Statistics and Mathematical Modeling explains the appropriate uses of multivariate procedures and mathematical modeling techniques, and prescribe practices that enable applied researchers to use these procedures effectively without needing to concern themselves with the mathematical basis. The Handbook emphasizes using models and statistics as tools. The objective of the book is to inform readers about which tool to use to accomplish which task. Each chapter begins with a discussion of what kinds of questions a particular technique can and cannot answer. As multivariate statistics and modeling techniques are useful across disciplines, these examples include issues of concern in biological and social sciences as well as the humanities.

During the 18 months since the publication of the 1st edition the practice of software quality and the availability of tools and guidance for its implementation has increased dramatically. The emphasis on the need for formal methods has increased and calls for certification of safety critical software are now common. In particular this 2nd edition: -Expands the treatment of static analysis and includes a com prehensive but simple example in order to illustrate clearly the functions of each analyser in Chapter 8. -Describes formal requirements languages more fully in Chapter 6. -Updates the compendium of available guidelines and standards in Chapter 5. -Expands the description of the many high level languages in Chapter 9. -Improves and expands the exercise into a 49 page case study consisting of a documentation hierarchy for a safety system in Chapter 14. It is seeded with deliberate errors and ambiguities and now includes guidance in finding them.

The GCC States in an Unstable World

Foreign-policy Dilemmas of Small States
Author: Hassan Hamdan Alkim

The states of the lower Gulf and Saudi-Arabia share a similar economic, social and political situation. On the one hand, they have a relatively small population, a high per capita income and a relatively low capacity to absorb capital. On the other hand, they have acquired significant importance since the Second World War as a result of the discovery of oil and their vast oil wealth (60 per cent of the world's proven reserves). Al-Alkim's book examines the actors shaping the foreign-policy dynamics of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) states. The theme of the study is that, as a result of the 1991-92 Gulf war and the Gulf countries' increased dependency on the US in the 'new world order', the GCC has become heavily dependent on foreign powers for its survival. The author first outlines the historical background, explaining its effect on current foreign-policy issues and investigating the role played by internal factors. He then deals with political and social dynamics, strengths and weaknesses, and harmony and conflict in intra-state relations. Regional and international interactions, and the role of decision-makers, are examined as they impinge on the drawing up of foreign policy. Finally, the book examines the issues and problems facing the GCC states for their foreign policy in the 1990s and asks how they will approach the twenty-first century.

WHERE DO YOU BEGIN TELLING SOMEONE THEIR WORLD IS NOT THE ONLY ONE? While Stacey, a 17-year-old Native girl, struggles to save her family and community from a devastating influenza epidemic, a white classmate’s suicide hints that the village is threatened by forces more sinister and powerful than the epidemic itself. Ravensong, the first novel of celebrated author Lee Maracle, tells an extraordinary story about a young woman’s quest for answers, combining both tragedy and joy in its unforgettable depiction of an urban Native community in the 1950s. Maracle speaks unflinchingly of the gulf between two cultures: a gulf that Raven says must be bridged. Evocative and prescient, filled with oral traditions, humour, and deep insight, Ravensong is more than just a novel—it is a necessary story for our time.

The End of My Life

Vance Bourjaily’s classic novel of World War II dramatizes an entire generation’s loss of innocence When Thomas “Skinner” Galt leaves Greenwich Village to volunteer as an ambulance driver with the British Army, he anticipates the adventure of a lifetime. What he fails to understand is that no matter where he comes from or how many books he has read, once he dons a military uniform, his life will cease to be his own. Stationed first in the Middle East and then in Italy, Skinner and his fellow American volunteers, Rod, Freak, and Benny, endure boredom, fear, and the exquisite frustration of following orders. They seek solace in their friendship with one another and in the debauched diversions available to men during wartime. But as the days and nights drag on, Skinner begins to drift away from his comrades—and from himself. Too late, he discovers that the path he has chosen leads only to tragedy. Inspired by Vance Bourjaily’s experiences as an ambulance driver in the American Field Service and commissioned by legendary editor Maxwell Perkins, The End of My Life marked the arrival of a writer heralded by the New York Times as “a Dostoevsky of the generation that came of age in World War II.” Elegant, spare, and fiercely honest, this is a timeless portrait of the devastating effects of war on the human spirit.

First published in 1948, Merle Miller’s first novel, That Winter, is a book of disillusioned youth, of veterans in the post-war world, in a story of personal despair, individual tragedy. It is the winter after the war has ended. Peter lets his inaction lead to writing for a magazine in which he has no faith. Lew renounces his Jewish name and family. Ted realizes that his only home was the Army. Through Westing, a phony novelist, who serves as catalytic agent, Ted suicides, Peter throws up his job, Lew realizes he cannot pass as a Christian. Widely considered to be one of the best novels about the post-war readjustment of World War II veterans, this classic novel will have you captivated from the first page. “Here is the clarification of unresolved drives, problems, incidents, of the push and pull of Fitzgerald, in the recording of the cracking of foundations, security, personal affairs, of hard reality edged with the passion of beliefs, with the gentleness of characterization.”—Kirkus Review

Magnus Merriman

Introduced by Douglas Gifford. This hilarious novel charts the rise and fall (and perhaps the rise again) of Magnus Merriman—would-be lover, writer, politician, idealist and crofter—moved by dreams of greatness and a talent for farcical defeat. Convinced that ‘small nations are safer to live in than big ones’, Magnus becomes a Nationalist candidate for the parliamentary seat of ‘Kinluce’. With details based on Linklater’s own experiences in an East Fife by-election in 1933, the way is set for a satirical and irreverent portrait of Scottish life, literature and politics in the 1930s. Nothing is sacred and no-one is spared. ‘A book full of remarkable passages . . . [with a] breathless tempo . . . it is wonderful writing.’ Herald
