Hilfe die Herdmanns kommen

Author: Barbara Robinson
Publisher: Verlag Friedrich Oetinger
ISBN: 9783960520399
Release Date: 2017-09-25
Genre: Juvenile Fiction

Das kann ja heiter werden! Im ganzen Viertel ist man sich einig: Die Kinder der Familie Herdmann sind die schlimmsten Kinder aller Zeiten. Sie lügen, klauen, rauchen Zigarren (auch die Mädchen), bringen die Nachbarn zur Verzweiflung und können ein Klassenzimmer mit Hilfe ihrer halbwilden Katze in Rekordzeit vollkommen leer fegen. Zu allem Überfluss haben sie es auch noch geschafft, alle Hauptrollen im weihnachtlichen Krippenspiel zu bekommen. Womöglich steht damit die schlimmste Aufführung aller Zeiten bevor. Der etwas andere Weihnachtsklassiker von Barbara Robinson, übersetzt von Erfolgsduo Paul und Nele Maar, mit neuen, ebenso pfiffigen wie farbigen Illustrationen von Anke Kuhl, die ihre ganz eigene Geschichte im Detail erzählen.

Heimat

Genre: Biography & Autobiography

„Wie kann man verstehen, wer man ist, wenn man nicht weiß, woher man kommt?“ Sie lebt seit über 12 Jahren in New York, ist verheiratet mit einem amerikanischen Juden und fühlt sich deutscher als jemals zuvor. Woher kommt das? Und wer ist sie eigentlich? Die preisgekrönte, 1977 in Karlsruhe geborene Autorin und Illustratorin Nora Krug fragt sich, was Heimat für sie bedeutet, und unternimmt eine literarisch-grafische Spurensuche in der Vergangenheit ihrer Familie: Was hatte Großvaters Fahrschule mit dem jüdischen Unternehmer zu tun, dessen Chauffeur er vor dem Krieg gewesen war? Und was sagen die mit Hakenkreuzen dekorierten Schulaufsätze über ihren Onkel, der mit 18 Jahren im Zweiten Weltkrieg fiel? Ihre gezeichneten und handgeschriebenen Bildergeschichten fügt Krug mit Fotografien, Archiv- und Flohmarktfunden zu einem völlig neuen Ganzen zusammen. „Heimat“ ist ein einzigartiges Erinnerungskunstwerk, in dem Familiengeschichte auf Zeitgeschichte trifft. Ein Graphic Memoir, lebendig, wahr und poetisch erzählt. Dieses eBook beinhaltet farbige Abbildungen und Illustrationen mit handgeletterten Texten. Es ist für die Darstellung auf Tablets optimiert.

Rich Dad Poor Dad

Publisher: FinanzBuch Verlag

Release Date: 2014-11-14
Genre: Self-Help

Warum bleiben die Reichen reich und die Armen arm? Weil die Reichen ihren Kindern beibringen, wie sie mit Geld umgehen müssen, und die anderen nicht! Die meisten Angestellten verbringen im Laufe ihrer Ausbildung lieber Jahr um Jahr in Schule und Universität, wo sie nichts über Geld lernen, statt selbst erfolgreich zu werden. Robert T. Kiyosaki hatte in seiner Jugend einen "Rich Dad" und einen "Poor Dad". Nachdem er die Ratschläge des Ersteren beherzigt hatte, konnte er sich mit 47 Jahren zur Ruhe setzen. Er hatte gelernt, Geld für sich arbeiten zu lassen, statt andersherum. In Rich Dad Poor Dad teilt er sein Wissen und zeigt, wie jeder erfolgreich sein kann.

Die Berechnung der Zukunft

Author: Nate Silver
Publisher: Heyne Verlag
ISBN: 9783641112707
Release Date: 2013-09-02
Genre: Business & Economics

Zuverlässige Vorhersagen sind doch möglich! Nate Silver ist der heimliche Gewinner der amerikanischen Präsidentschaftswahlen 2012: ein begnadeter Statistiker, als »Prognose-Popstar« und »Wundernerd« weltberühmt geworden. Er hat die Wahlergebnisse aller 50 amerikanischen Bundesstaaten absolut exakt vorausgesagt – doch damit nicht genug: Jetzt zeigt Nate Silver, wie seine Prognosen in Zukunft Terroranschläge, Umweltkatastrophen und Finanzkrisen verhindern sollen. Gelingt ihm die Abschaffung des Zufalls? Warum werden Wettervorhersagen immer besser, während die Terrorattacken vom 11.09.2001 niemand kommen sah? Warum erkennen Ökonomen eine globale Finanzkrise nicht einmal dann, wenn diese bereits begonnen hat? Das Problem ist nicht der Mangel an Informationen, sondern dass wir die verfügbaren Daten nicht richtig deuten. Zuverlässige Prognosen aber würden uns helfen, Zufälle und Ungewissheiten abzuwehren und unser Schicksal selbst zu bestimmen. Nate Silver zeigt, dass und wie das geht. Erstmals wendet er seine Wahrscheinlichkeitsrechnung nicht nur auf Wahlprognosen an, sondern auf die großen Probleme unserer Zeit: die Finanzmärkte, Ratingagenturen, Epidemien, Erdbeben, den Klimawandel, den Terrorismus. In all diesen Fällen gibt es zahlreiche Prognosen von Experten, die er überprüft – und erklärt, warum sie meist falsch sind. Gleichzeitig schildert er, wie es gelingen kann, im Rauschen der Daten die wesentlichen Informationen herauszufiltern. Ein unterhaltsamer und spannender Augenöffner!
