About the book Lighter through everyday life: Decluttering up your life! (Minimalism: Declutter your life, home, mind & soul) We live too fast, rush through overfull days, and there is always too much lying around. But that could change. Because: In every one of us is the stuff of the time-millionaire. We ourselves are the ones who turn the clock, because we are stuffing more and more into our everyday lives, and that makes our precious time of life short. We do not have too little time, but too much to do. In this way we ourselves bring the hectic pace into our lives, which we want to avoid. Never really get to the point, and always thinking somewhere else. A simple life with more success, freedom, happiness, money, love and time - that's what we all want. But in our modern performance-oriented society, however, this simplicity often falls by the wayside: consumption, ownership and performance seem to be the more important values, at least superficially. Minimalism as a way of life refers to a way of living that enables everyone to concentrate on the essential things. Minimalism can, but does not have to cover all areas of life. Whoever decides to want to live minimalistically, usually does so very consciously. The motives are almost always similar: # Pressure to perform and career constraints: Too much stress at work, in studies and in leisure time # Excessive lifestyle...body worship, shopping and social media communication: overtaxed by exaggeration and abundance # Manipulation by the marketing industry: social coercion to possess certain consumer goods Minimalism means self-determination and self-realization. Do not let others or society dictate what a good and right life should look like. Freeing yourself from black and white thinking, reducing ownership and responsibilities to save time and money and have more energy for family, friends, hobbies and travel. Start today by making the most of your life and building a positive mindset. Becoming a MINIMALIST...begins in the HEAD!

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.

Isabel Schrimpf, geboren 1969, studierte Betriebswirtschaft und arbeitete in der Marketingforschung, bevor sie 2011 mit ihrer Familie für zwei Jahre nach Singapur zog. Fasziniert von der Andersartigkeit, Vielfalt und Gegensätzlichkeit dieser Metropole beschäftigte sie sich intensiv mit den Wurzeln und Weltanschauungen, die den Inselstaat seit jeher prägen. Sie absolvierte eine Ausbildung am Asian Civilisations Museum, wo sie Einheimische wie Touristen durch die schillernde Kulturgeschichte Singapurs führte. Seit ihrer Rückkehr lebt sie in München.
For many years it required a lot of courage to reveal oneself elsewhere as a native of Frankfurt. The metropolis was considered one of Germany´s more unattractive addresses, boring and impersonal. At that time, its quality of life showed itself only, if at all, to the city´s subculture. The famous shopping mile Zeil was a bare row of department stores having the charm of containers and Frankfurt´s nightlife consisted of the dreary red-light district around the central station. If the city drew any attention it was because of demonstrations and riots.All long gone. Designers have displaced demonstrators, street festivals sit-ins: The city, once infamous for being sick and smelly (it has been called Krankfurt and Gestankfurt, literally meaning ill-furt and stink-furt), has been refurbished and refurnished in postmodern design. With the highest cultural budget of all German cities the municipality bought during the wealthy 80s and 90s everything that promised urban flair and city chic: art, culture and big names. By now, the banking metropolis is, apart from some peripheral regions and neighbourhoods, top stylish and luxuriously modernised. The wallflower, it would seem, has become a bird of paradise and the wind beneath its wings is an invigorating Frankfurt lifestyle. The heart of the city, the historical Römer, with its historicised reproductions of half-timbered houses has long been the natives´ favourite plaza and the tourists´ most popular photo motive. All the prolific cultural attractions in Frankfurt - the Museumsufer across the river, the Alte Oper with the imposing Lucae Fountain, the postmodern Kunsthalle Schirn and the Museum of Modern Art by the Viennese Star architect Hans Hollein - have richly rewarded its residents for the many years of reconstruction and modernisation.Now Frankfurt is the envy of many visitors - its striking skyline, attractive art exhibitions and impressive museum mansions on the banks of the Main. But even if the rents have soared to astronomical heights and stylish Mainhattan hardly misses a beat when it comes to superlatives, the metropolis has always kept its provincial heart in the right place, it is still more a country town than a capital city - a look in the local section of the city papers will convince anyone. It´s exactly this mixture that accounts for the new charm of today´s Frankfurt: the contrast between megalomania and village idyll, the latent chaos of urban chic and lively side-by-side of many different cultures and lifestyles that is based on a long and liberal tradition of business and tolerance.
The use of Natural Fibre Composites (NFCs) in automotive and building industries is growing rapidly. NFCs are made from low cost, lighter and more renewable natural fibres. This book explores further potentinal of NFCs in developed and developing countries, using materials that are normally viewed as waste and simpler processing methods. Using Canada and Lesotho for case studies, raw materials and related institutional environment are surveyed. Choice of materials and processing methods for the composites are made on the basis of the surveyed factors. Some of the selected fibres are examined for their microstructural properties and their interactions with waste plastics in the composites. The composites are made and tested using fibres from Agave americana leaves/flax stalks and straw from corn/wheat stalks in waste Low Density Polyethyelene (bale wrap) and High Density Polyethylene (shopping bags). The environmental benefits of NFCs are demonstrated using a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA). This book challenges university graduate and undergraduate students to think outside the box when designing and creating the green materials.
