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.
Mailand - Stadt der Mode und des Designs, berühmt für seine Scala und seinen Dom. Mailand - auch eine Stadt, um auf Monster-Safari zu gehen? Dieses Buch will den Blick des Betrachters in Winkel und Ecken lenken, auf Motive, die eher ein Schattendasein im Licht der Attraktionen dieser Stadt führen. Zu unrecht, wie die 120 Farbaufnahmen belegen, die zum erstenmal in gesammelter Form veröffentlicht werden. Wasserspeier, Blattmasken und Fabelwesen, als Steinmetzarbeiten liebevoll bis ins kleinste Detail ausgeführt, befinden sich nicht nur am großartigen Dom selbst, sondern sind auch zahlreich in den noblen Einkaufsstraßen, über den exklusiven Mode- und Juwelierläden zu entdecken. Milan - city of fashion and design, famous for its Scala and its cathedral. Milan - also a city to go monster hunting? This book intends to guide the eyes of the reader to hidden corners and places, to motifs which lead a shadowy existence in the light of the citys attractions. Very wrongly so, as the 120 coloured photos prove which are published for the first time. Gargoyles, foliate masks and mythical creatures, carved out of stone with a love for details, are not to be found on the great cathedral alone, but also in the elegant shopping streets, perching above the exclusive fashion and jewellery shops. Regina E.G. Schymiczek ist Kunsthistorikerin und Autorin. Seit 1999 beschäftigt sie sich intensiv mit der Entwicklung und Deutung von Wasserspeiern. 2003 schrieb sie ihre Dissertation über die Wasserspeier des Kölner Doms, veröffentlichte seitdem mehrere Bücher und Aufsätze zu diesem Thema und hält regelmäßig Vorträge über Wasserspeier. Mehrere Kinderbücher von ihr sind bereits erschienen, ein historischer Roman wird in Kürze veröffentlicht. Regina E.G. Schymiczek is art historian and author.

Chances are, youve heard one or two things about Amsterdam already: seventeenth century buildings and readily available hash, the Van Gogh gallery and erotic museums, a laid back atmosphere and a liberal tolerance, eccentrics and slick business types; Amsterdam blends history and urban flair unlike any other city in Europe . It doesnt matter if youve been around the world twice, youre a first-time traveler, or youre somewhere in-between, Amsterdam offers something new at every gabled corner, and to suit all tastes. The capital of the Netherlands is a lively juxtaposition of cobbled streets and pretty canals, with an easily accessible underbelly of fascinating quirks. Whether youre here for a weekend break or as part of a longer Europe trip, there are many superlatives to describe Amsterdam, and boring is never one of them. Explore concentric horseshoes of canals by bike - navigating the compact warren of heritage buildings studded with offbeat shops and bars. Stop cycling to traverse the citys waterways, flanked by boats and barges, the perfect way to spend a lazy afternoon and to understand Amsterdams seamless diversity. Museum-hop by foot; echoing the Dutch Eco-spirit whilst choosing a handful from hundreds of cultural centers and galleries to expand your knowledge. Amsterdam , of course, has a striking reputation. Many people feel intimidated by the idea of visiting, and shouldnt feel bad about that - however, this is a city filled with alternatives, both for those uninspired by the tolerant attitudes, and for those not sufficiently challenged by Rembrandt and the Rijksmuseum . Everything youve heard about Amsterdam is true, and it isnt true; some justified, some blown up. There are layers of understanding to this city which you can peel back and give you new insight visit after visit. Over the past couple of decades or so, Amsterdam has softened its edge. Though you can still find groups of blokes on the prowl in the Red Light District, along with backpackers and sixties throwback crowds here solely to get stoned, the small-city segmentation by its canals means you can just as easily find your way to cosmopolitan shopping districts, boutique bars, and peaceful parks within a city utterly brimming with culture .
Masters Thesis from the year 2012 in the subject Business economics - Industrial Management, grade: 110/110, University of Siena, course: Industrial economy, language: English, abstract: It has been more than two decades since internet boosted its potential and now it can be considered a fearful competitor of many mortal businesses such as retailers, advertisers or even intermediaries. It is also known that the advent of internet in our daily life has also changed many systems structures such as the transaction costs in B2B, B2C or even the C2C models. Internet has abolished geographical boundaries, connected people and facilitated information flow. We now live in a world that everything happens in real time, which also brought changes in economic equilibriums, marketing strategies as well as speculation margins. Amazon, Google, EBay has revolutionized the custom of traditional shopping, increasing consumers addiction to consumption by differentiating products in every possible and imaginable manner. Well, this works attempt is to shed a light on the dynamics of this evolution, to acknowledge the main players and see how equilibrium can be set and re-set incessantly in a very volatile market due to its lack of physicality (i.e there is a physical gap between supplier and demander at the purchasing moment, therefore is very difficult to build customer loyalty). The example used to extrapolate some statistical evidence is linked to group buying e-commers such as coupon companies. It is the case of Groupon.com, the daily offers company with the highest growth rate among web companies since 2008 . The first part of the study is a theoretical literature review mainly arranged to give a theoretical backup to the empirical analysis that will follow. It seems that there has been a lot of field research on the topic. I suppose the reason is the worryingly fast growing pattern of these virtual business realities. The first chapters aims to concatenate the main features of these new business models, trying to understand the differences between them and the traditional ones which offer the same products or services- also the reasons why normal firms are greatly suffering market share losses. The third chapter instead is totally dedicated to online intermediaries since they seem to be the economic agents to have better fit in this new giant virtual marketplace. Different types of intermediaries obviously play different roles in the business arena and also provoke different welfare effects in terms of costumers wellbeing. For such reasons the interesting part here is their game strategy while intermediating either information or services.
