The Cyclist Who Went Out in the Cold

´Bill Bryson on two wheels´ Independent Scaling a new peak of rash over-ambition, Tim Moore tackles the 9,000km route of the old Iron Curtain on a tiny-wheeled, two-geared East German shopping bike. Asking for trouble and getting it, he sets off at the Arctic winter´s brutal height, bullying his plucky MIFA 900 through the endless and massively sub-zero desolation of snowbound Finland. Haunted throughout the journey by the border detritus of watchtowers and rusted razor wire, Moore reflects on the curdling of the Communist dream, and the memories of a Cold War generation reared on the fear of apocalypse - at a time of ratcheting East-West tension. After three months, 20 countries and a 58-degree jaunt up the centigrade scale, man and bike finally wobble up to a Black Sea beach in Bulgaria, older and wiser, but mainly older.

Scaling a new peak of rash overambition, Tim Moore tackles the 9,000 kilometer route of the old Iron Curtain on a tiny-wheeled, two-geared East German shopping bike. Asking for trouble and getting it, he sets off from the northernmost Norwegian-Russian border at the Arctic winter´s brutal height, bullying his plucky MIFA 900 through the endless and massively subzero desolation of snowbound Finland. Sleeping in bank vaults, imperial palaces and unreconstructed Soviet youth hostels, battling vodka-breathed Russian hostility, Romanian landslides and a diet of dumplings, Moore and his ´so-small bicycle´ are sustained by the kindness of reindeer farmers and Serbian rock gods, plus a shameful addiction to Magic Man energy drink. Haunted throughout by the border detritus of watchtowers and rusted razor wire, Moore reflects on the curdling of the Communist dream and the memories of a Cold War generation reared on the fear of apocalypse - at a time of ratcheting East-West tension. After three months, 20 countries and a 58 degree jaunt up the centigrade scale, man and bike finally wobble up to a Black Sea beach in Bulgaria, older and wiser, but mainly older. 1.

In Neither Here nor There Bill Bryson brings his unique brand of humour to bear on Europe as he shoulders his backpack, keeps a tight hold on his wallet, and journeys from Hammerfest, the northernmost town on the continent, to Istanbul on the cusp of Asia. Whether braving the homicidal motorists of Paris, being robbed by gypsies in Florence, attempting not to order tripe and eyeballs in a German restaurant, window-shopping in the sex shops of the Reeperbahn or disputing his hotel bill in Copenhagen, Bryson takes in the sights, dissects the culture and illuminates each place and person with his hilariously caustic observations. 1.

Bill Bryson´s first travel book, The Lost Continent, was unanimously acclaimed as one of the funniest books in years. In Neither Here Nor There he brings his unique brand of humour to bear on Europe as he shoulders his backpack, keeps a tight hold on his wallet, and journeys from Hammerfest, the northernmost town on the continent, to Istanbul on the cusp of Asia. Fluent in, oh, at least one language, he retraces his travels as a student 20 years before. Whether braving the homicidal motorists of Paris, being robbed by gypsies in Florence, attempting not to order tripe and eyeballs in a German restaurant, window-shopping in the sex shops of the Reeperbahn or disputing his hotel bill in Copenhagen, Bryson takes in the sights, dissects the culture, and illuminates each place and person with his hilariously caustic observations. He even goes to Liechtenstein. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Bill Bryson. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/rhuk/000600/bk_rhuk_000600_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Learn about the International Criminal Tribunals with iMinds insightful audio knowledge series.The concept of prosecuting war criminals is not unique to the modern world. Individuals who breached the ´´rules of war” were tried in Ancient Greece, and probably earlier. However, those early prosecutions were carried out by national courts, generally by victors against the vanquished, and so could hardly be described as examples of fair and impartial international justice. Underpinning the prosecutions was a notion that, even in war, there are certain rules which must be obeyed. The first notable international attempt to codify these ´´rules of war” was the Geneva Convention of 1864, followed by the Hague conventions in 1899 and 1907. The suggestion was raised then that an international criminal court should be established to enforce the conventions, however the idea was too radical at the time where national boundaries were considered absolute. At the conclusion of World War I, the Treaty of Versailles contained an agreement that a tribunal would be established to try Kaiser Wilhelm II, the German leader.

Christoph Mäckler

Die Architektur Christoph Mäcklers zeichnet sich durch die Versöhnung von Tradition und Moderne aus. Er sucht die Baukunst wieder mit ihren vormodernen Wurzeln zu verknüpfen. Dabei spielt die Wiedergewinnung von Oberfläche und Volumen in der Fassade und das Verständnis für die Materialbeschaffenheit eines Baukörpers eine maßgebliche Rolle. Bereits 1979 wurde Christoph Mäckler Schinkelpreisträger. 1981 gründete er ein eigenes Büro für Architektur und Stadtbereichsplanung in Frankfurt am Main. Mit seinen herausragenden Bauten hat Christoph Mäckler architektonische Maßstäbe gesetzt. Das Buch dokumentiert etwa 22 Bauten von 1990 bis 2008; zu ihnen gehören die alte Stadtbibliothek und die Kunsthalle Portikus in Frankfurt am Main, die European Business School in Oestrich-Winkel, das Büro- und Geschäftszentrum Lindencorso in Berlin, das Bürohaus Arca in Frankfurt am Main sowie die Hauptverwaltung der KPMG Deutsche Treuhandgesellschaft in Berlin. Christoph Mäckler?s architecture is distinguished by its reconciliation of tradition and modernity. Mäckler seeks to reconnect architecture with its premodern roots. A pivotal role in his efforts is played by the restoration of surface and volume in the facade and the understanding of the building?s material properties. Christoph Mäckler won the Schinkelpreis (Schinkel Award) in 1979. In 1981 he established his own firm for architecture and city planning in Frankfurt am Main. With his outstanding structures, Christoph Mäckler has set new architectural standards. This book documents some twenty-two buildings from 1990 to 2008, including the Alte Stadtbibliothek (Old City Library) and Kunsthalle Portikus (Portikus Art Gallery) in Frankfurt am Main, the European Business School in Oestrich-Winkel, the Lindencorso office complex and shopping center in Berlin, the Arca office building in Frankfurt am Main, and the headquarters of KPMG Deutsche Treuhandgesellschaft (KPMG German Trust Corporation) in Berlin. Die Architektur Christoph Mäcklers zeichnet sich durch die Versöhnung von Tradition und Moderne aus. Das Buch dokumentiert 22 Bauten von 1990 bis 2008.

Egal ob als kurzer Stop-over oder als temporäre Heimat für Expats: Singapur fasziniert, zumal, wenn man auch einen Blick hinter die Spiegelfassaden der Shoppingmalls wirft. Diese informative und unterhaltsame Gebrauchsanweisung liefert Wissenswertes, weniger zu touristischen Highlights, als zum kuriosen Alltag der Singapurer zwischen Tradition und Moderne, Ahnenkult und Fortschrittsglauben, Konsumrausch und Spiritualität – zu einer Nation, die es dank der eisernen Hand ihrer Regierung, viersprachiger Verbotsschilder und Mückenpolizei in kürzester Zeit von einem Malaria-Sumpf zu einem der fortschrittlichsten Länder der Welt gebracht hat. Lernen Sie die Mentalität von Singapurern und Expats verstehen, die die Autorin mit ihrem Insider-Wissen aus zwei Jahren persönlicher Erfahrung augenzwinkernd analysiert. Begegnen Sie einer so vielfältigen wie gegensätzlichen Metropole, in deren Hawker Centern Asiatinnen in straßbesetzten High Heels an Hühnerfüßen knabbern, um ihren Teint aufzufrischen. Tauchen Sie ein in eine Stadt, in der die Menschen innerhalb weniger Wochen das muslimische Zuckerfest, Weihnachten, das hinduistische Thaipusam und Chinese New Year feiern, sieben Tage die Woche rund um die Uhr shoppen, aber Kaugummi nur gegen Vorlage des amtlichen Lichtbildausweises erhältlich ist. Erfahren Sie, wie die Singapurer hungrige Geister verwöhnen, warum ein Nummernschild mit den Zahlen 2828 so begehrt ist, und was man hier mit einem Bikini aus Papier anfängt. This guide is a fact-based, tongue-in-cheek introduction to Singapore and its people from a European, German, personal point of view. It sheds a light on the mentality of Singaporeans – micro-managed and torn between shopping malls and superstition – as well as expats, just one species of many in this multi-ethnic metropolis, which is certainly one of the most diverse spots on this planet.
