Download and read online Jump in PDF and EPUB February 24, 2010 - Vancouver Olympic Games. Through the fog lies a four metre high icy wall that will launch you as high as a four story building. The only thing in between you and Olympic glory is one final jump... 'Jump' is a story about mind, body and a fighting spirit. It is journey of self discovery, self belief and battles to overcome injury and setbacks. It's about commitment and the dedication required to reach the top. From a young age Lydia set her eyes on Olympic glory, she had no idea with which sport but she knew more than anything else she wanted a Gold medal. Initially gymnastics was her chosen sport, but when injury and opportunity curtailed that career her destiny opened up before her. Australia was embarking on a radical program of turning gymnasts into aerial skiers and Lydia was offered a chance for a new beginning, even though she had never skied before - a challenge she grasped with open arms and one that would change her life forever. Lydia's rise to the top ranks of the sport was rapid only because she pushed herself to her extreme limits, often through pain and debilitating injuries. In essence she set out to jump like a man and was determined to push boundaries and break new ground in women's aerial skiing. Aerial skiing is both an elegant and dangerous sport that leaves no room for error. It is a sport that tests an athletes' courage, resilience and the ability to focus - a sport that only the mentally tough can master. 'Jump' is an intimate account from the athlete detailing the trials and tribulations required to reach the top of her sport. It is a fascinating account of a story littered with injury and success.

But the police want to call it a suicide, since both the Mayor and press are complaining about the dismal closure rate for homicide investigations. But ex-cop Sam McGowan knows it was murder. He also knows that anyone living on the top floor of the building should be a suspect, including himself. So Sam decides to get to know his neighbors: A lonely jazz singer more than willing to confess to any crime, past or present; Two young women paying for graduate school by operating a website that reveals a lot more than their SAT scores; The B-movie producer with a swollen prostate and shrinking bank balance; And the brothers at the end of the hall, who just quit their day jobs to sell marijuana for the Mexican mob. The only thing they have in common is a general agree-ment that their dead landlord got what he deserved—and that one of them is probably responsible. As more bodies surface and alliances shift, Sam finds himself jumping back and forth between his old life as a cop and his new one as a murder suspect, unable to decide where he really belongs.

Download and read online Von Jump zu Hartz Eine arbeitsmarktpolitische Bilanz der rot gr nen Bundesregierung in PDF and EPUB Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2006 im Fachbereich Politik - Politische Systeme - Politisches System Deutschlands, Note: 1,3, Universität Rostock, 57 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Kurz nach Amtsantritt im Herbst 1998 erklärte Bundeskanzler Gerhard Schröder, dass sich die Koalition zwischen SPD und Grünen „jederzeit [...] daran messen lassen [wolle], in welchem Maße [sie] zur Bekämpfung der Arbeitslosigkeit beigetragen [habe]“. Zu diesem Zeitpunkt hatte die Arbeitslosenzahl einen Stand von 3,89 Millionen erreicht , was nicht zuletzt dem jahrelangen „Reformstau“ der christdemokratischen-liberalen Vorgängerregierung und ihren nur unzureichenden Ansätzen einer Deregulierung des Arbeitsmarktes geschuldet war. Immer wieder betonte Schröder daher die zentrale Bedeutung arbeitsmarkt- und beschäftigungspolitischer Reformen und steckte das Ziel, die Arbeitslosigkeit bis zu unter drei Millionen zu senken. Doch entgegen diesem Vorhaben stieg die Zahl der Arbeitslosen kontinuierlich an, bis zum Regierungswechsel und zur Übernahme der Großen Koalition im November 2005 lag sie bei 4,55 Millionen. Bei dieser alarmierenden Zahl stellt sich die Frage, der in dieser Arbeit nachgegangen werden soll, welche arbeitsmarktpolitischen Strategien die Regierung bis dato verfolgt hat und ob beziehungsweise inwiefern diese erfolgreich gewesen sind. In Kapitel 1 werden zunächst anhand einschlägiger Fachliteratur (vgl. z.B. Schmid 1984; Harmes-Liedtke 1999; Mühlbradt 1999; Schmid/ Blanke 2001) der Begriff der Arbeitsmarktpolitik erläutert und abgegrenzt sowie Theorien zu Funktionsweisen von Arbeitsmärkten und Ursachen von Arbeitslosigkeit beleuchtet. Die Einteilung der Strategien zur Bekämpfung der Arbeitslosigkeit in angebotsorientierte und nachfrageorientierte Arbeitsmarktpolitik oder alternativ in aktive und passive Arbeitsmarktpolitik dient im Anschluss als Analyseraster für die einzelnen Reformen.Kapitel beschäftigt sich mit den unterschiedlichen arbeitsmarktpolitischen Phasen der rot-grünen Bundesregierung von 1998 bis 2005, die sich in die Anfangsphase der „Parteiendifferenzierung“ und „Klientelpolitik“, die Übergangsphase von der „Politik der ruhigen Hand“ zur aktivierenden Arbeitsmarktpolitik sowie in die Reformphase der Hartz-Gesetze und der Agenda 2010 gliedern. Jede Phase wird in einen allgemeinen politisch-ökonomischen Handlungsrahmen eingeordnet, bevor auf die jeweils wichtigsten arbeitsmarktpolitischen Reformen, ihre Ziele, Instrumente sowie Chancen und Probleme eingegangen wird.

Download and read online Great wits jump in PDF and EPUB »Great wits jump« – Originelle Geister vollführen Gedankensprünge: Für Sterne ist dieser Anspruch zugleich seine ästhetische Grundüberzeugung, denn ungewöhnliche Assoziationen können verschüttete oder schamhaft verschwiegene Gedanken blitzartig erhellen. Die sternesche Zitierpraxis agiert auf ebendiesem Felde: Seine Romane zeichnen sich besonders durch ihre vieldeutige Sprache aus, sie sind aufgeladen mit einer Fülle von Anspielungen, die sich nicht endgültig entschlüsseln lassen. Dass Laurence Sterne in seinen Werken unzählige Passagen aus der literarischen Überlieferung zitiert, ist zwar seit Langem bekannt. Werner Busch kann nun aber zeigen, dass Sterne auch zahlreiche Werke der bildenden Kunst aufgreift und seinem Werk radikal einverleibt. Laurence Sterne vermeidet folgerichtiges Erzählen zugunsten zahlloser Abschweifungen und montiert seine Texte aus einer unüberschaubaren Vielzahl von Bausteinen, die er sich aus der gesamten literarischen Überlieferung borgt und nur minimal verändert. Gerade dieses Montageverfahren macht Sternes Modernität aus: James Joyce und Virginia Woolf oder auch Thomas Mann und Arno Schmidt beziehen sich auf ihn als einen Autor der literarischen Moderne. Neben dieser Textmontage zitiert Sterne – vor allem in geradezu absurd ausführlichen Beschreibungen von Gesten und Situationen – zahlreiche Werke der bildenden Kunst. Dabei eignet sich Sterne in seinem Schreiben zumeist Werke aus der Vergangenheit an, bezieht sich aber auch auf die Kunst seiner Zeitgenossen. Werner Busch gelingt es nicht nur nachzuweisen, welche Bilder Sterne auf diese Weise zitiert. Er kann sogar darlegen, woher Sterne diese Bilder gekannt haben wird. Das führt ihn zu der Frage, aus welchem Grund Laurence Sterne Szenen aus Zeichnungen, Gemälden, Radierungen und häufig sogar Karikaturen für seine Texte verwendete.

Download and read online Image Processing and Jump Regression Analysis in PDF and EPUB The first text to bridge the gap between image processing and jump regression analysis Recent statistical tools developed to estimate jump curves and surfaces have broad applications, specifically in the area of image processing. Often, significant differences in technical terminologies make communication between the disciplines of image processing and jump regression analysis difficult. In easy-to-understand language, Image Processing and Jump Regression Analysis builds a bridge between the worlds of computer graphics and statistics by addressing both the connections and the differences between these two disciplines. The author provides a systematic analysis of the methodology behind nonparametric jump regression analysis by outlining procedures that are easy to use, simple to compute, and have proven statistical theory behind them. Key topics include: Conventional smoothing procedures Estimation of jump regression curves Estimation of jump location curves of regression surfaces Jump-preserving surface reconstruction based on local smoothing Edge detection in image processing Edge-preserving image restoration With mathematical proofs kept to a minimum, this book is uniquely accessible to a broad readership. It may be used as a primary text in nonparametric regression analysis and image processing as well as a reference guide for academicians and industry professionals focused on image processing or curve/surface estimation.
