Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2010 im Fachbereich Sachunterricht, Heimatkunde (Grundschulpadagogik), Note: 2,0, Leuphana Universitat Luneburg, Veranstaltung: Qualitatsentwicklung im Sachunterrcht und in der Sekundarstufe mittels des Curriculum Mobilitat, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: 1. Einleitung In dieser Hausarbeit zum Thema Nachhaltige Mobilitat in der Grundschule am Beispiel des Schulfahrtencurriculums" wird ein Schulfahrtenkonzept fur die Grundschule vorgestellt, welches sich am Curriculum Mobilitat orientiert. Mobilitat, wie es im Curriculum Mobilitat verstanden wird, meint nicht nur Verkehr, sondern allgemein die Moglichkeit von Bewegung. Unter Mobilitat wird die Moglichkeit zur raumlichen Bewegung von Menschen [und Gutern], nicht jedoch die Bewegung an sich verstanden, [...] So druckt sich ein hoher Grad an Mobilitat darin aus, dass eine Person erstens moglichst viele Optionen fur raumliche Bewegung hat, sie jedoch nicht automatisch alle wahrnimmt, und zweitens den Aufwand fur raumliche Bewegung moglichst minimal halt. Verkehr dagegen ist realisierte Mobilitat." Die Moglichkeit zur Mobilitat spielt im Diskurs um eine nachhaltige Entwicklung eine entscheidende Rolle. Hierbei spielen Fragen nach Art von Bewegung, den damit verbundenen Emissionen, Fragen des Ressourcenverbrauchs, Gesundheitsaspekte sowie soziale und kulturelle Fragen eine zentrale Rolle. Mit dem Leitbild einer nachhaltigen Mobilitat ruckt die aktive und motivierende Gestaltbarkeit der Zukunft ins Zentrum schulischen Handelns. Das Ziel von einer Bildung fur einen nachhaltige Entwicklung (BNE) ist also die Vermittlung von Kompetenzen (vor allem Gestaltungskompetenz). De Haan formuliert das Ziel wie folgt: Bildung fur eine Nachhaltige Entwicklung hat unter den bildungstheoretischen Pramissen von Offenheit, Reflexivitat und Zukunftsfahigkeit zum Ziel, Lernenden ein systematisch generiertes und begrundetes Angebot zu den Themen, Aufgaben und Instrumenten von nachhaltiger Entwicklung zu machen."

Biofuel is a renewable energy source produced from natural materials. The benefits of biofuels over traditional petroleum fuels include greater energy security, reduced environmental impact, foreign exchange savings, and socioeconomic issues related to the rural sector. The most common biofuels are produced from classic food crops that require high-quality agricultural land for growth. However, bioethanol can be produced from plentiful, domestic, cellulosic biomass resources such as herbaceous and woody plants, agricultural and forestry residues, and a large portion of municipal and industrial solid waste streams. There is also a growing interest in the use of vegetable oils for making biodiesel. “Biofuels: Securing the Planet’s Future Energy Needs” discusses the production of transportation fuels from biomass (such as wood, straw and even household waste) by Fischer-Tropsch synthesis. The book is an important text for students and researchers in energy engineering, as well as professional fuel engineers.

Introduction to Japanese Politics, now in its fully updated sixth edition, is a comprehensive and current review of political and public policy developments in Japan. Since the previous edition, Japan’s economic policy has undergone significant change with a prolonged period of deflation having altered the dynamics of the Japanese economy. At the same time, the Abe administration has expanded Japan’s international security participation, previously limited by the constitution, while China’s activities in the South China Sea have impinged upon Japan’s territorial claims. This classic introduction to the Japanese political system has been revised and fully updated in this sixth edition to take into account these widespread changes in the country's political life. Building on the structure and content of the previous edition, this new edition covers: An overview of Japan's geographical setting and history Japan’s political institutions, processes, and actors Recent organizational, ideological, and policy changes in the LDP since its return to power The country's distinctive social order and its educational, healthcare, and public safety systems The increasingly contentious realm of foreign relations and security issues, including China's expanding role and the effect of North Korea’s development of nuclear weapons. This broad-ranging textbook continues to be essential reading for students of Japanese politics, international politics and Japanese studies.

A rigorous, yet accessible, introduction to essential topics in mathematical finance Presented as a course on the topic, Quantitative Finance traces the evolution of financial theory and provides an overview of core topics associated with financial investments. With its thorough explanations and use of real-world examples, this book carefully outlines instructions and techniques for working with essential topics found within quantitative finance including portfolio theory, pricing of derivatives, decision theory, and the empirical behavior of prices. The author begins with introductory chapters on mathematical analysis and probability theory, which provide the needed tools for modeling portfolio choice and pricing in discrete time. Next, a review of the basic arithmetic of compounding as well as the relationships that exist among bond prices and spot and forward interest rates is presented.? Additional topics covered include: Dividend discount models Markowitz mean-variance theory The Capital Asset Pricing Model Static?portfolio theory based on the expected-utility paradigm Familiar probability models for marginal distributions of returns and the dynamic behavior of security prices The final chapters of the book delve into the paradigms of pricing and present the application of martingale pricing in advanced models of price dynamics. Also included is a step-by-step discussion on the use of Fourier methods to solve for arbitrage-free prices when underlying price dynamics are modeled in realistic, but complex ways. Throughout the book, the author presents insight on current approaches along with comments on the unique difficulties that exist in the study of financial markets. These reflections illustrate the evolving nature of the financial field and help readers develop analytical techniques and tools to apply in their everyday work. Exercises at the end of most chapters progress in difficulty, and selected worked-out solutions are available in the appendix. In addition, numerous empirical projects utilize MATLAB® and Minitab® to demonstrate the mathematical tools of finance for modeling the behavior of prices and markets. Data sets that accompany these projects can be found via the book's FTP site. Quantitative Finance is an excellent book for courses in quantitative finance or financial engineering at the upper-undergraduate and graduate levels. It is also a valuable resource for practitioners in related fields including engineering, finance, and economics.

Voluntary Sector and Rural Development systematically analyzes the theoretical background of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) based on contemporary thoughts on the subject. The book covers the concepts of development and rural development and devotes adequate space to the strategies adopted to rural development in India, including an analysis of the themes of various rural development programs under India's First to Tenth Five-Year Plan. The findings contain many significant observations on the functioning of NGOs. The book constitutes the author's seminal contribution in studying the strategy for poverty removal and rural development. The idea contained here is not only fresh but, in all appearances, pragmatic as well. It points to the role of three forces in the civil society â?? authority, voluntarism, and profit. It asserts that programs designed to work in a social system, without integrating the above three forces, will not succeed fully. The book also charts out a strategy for adoption by program implementation agencies.

The abuse of methamphetamines in Southeast Asia has become a major problem over the past decade. Thailand has been particularly hard hit, and methamphetamines abuse now affects all sectors of Thai society. In the early 1990s, manufacturers set up laboratories across the border in Burma and began large-scale production. The new and inexpensive product, known in Thailand as yaa baa or madness medicine, flooded the local market, and has also been found in the United States and Europe. Published in French in 2002 and now made available in an English translation, this book is the first to deal with the rapid spread of methamphetamines in the region and in Thailand in particular, and their impact it has had on local society."

Millions of Americans are spending billions of dollars each year buying megavitamin supplements in an attempt to prevent or cure physical ailments from the common cold to cancer, avoid mental depression, and starve off the effects of old age. What they don’t know is that not only are they wasting their money, but they may be endangering their lives. In Vitamin Politics, John Fried shows how we have been misled and manipulated by vitamin enthusiasts who preach megavitamin therapy for a host of common ills. Operating without a conclusive body of proof, they continue to promote massive doses of vitamins to a willing public that is more interested in miracle cures than in reasoned scientific skepticism and caution. Vitamins taken in megadoses are no longer vitamins—they are drugs. As drugs they can and do have dangerous side effects. Numerous cases have been documented describing the effects suffered by those on megavitamin regimens including lethargy, vomiting, loss of hair, enlarged livers and spleens, and abnormal skull growth. But, Fried found, megavitamin proponents are more interested in publicity than scientific investigation, and vitamin promoters are more involved in the economics of vitamin production than in determining the effects of vitamins taken in large quantities. Vitamin Politics, an update of Fried’s classic The Vitamin Conspiracy, combines the misinformation of vitamin faddists and offers a well-reasoned, thoroughly researched report of the facts.
