              When nearly 7,000 people with German and Austrian heritage were detained by the Australian authorities following the outbreak of World War I, Paul Dubotzki, a talented Bavarian photographer, was among them. These unlikely prisoners-of-war came from all walks of life - merchant sa...ilors, visiting academics and many, including beer baron Edmund Resch and acclaimed orthopaedic surgeon Dr Max Herz, had lived in Australia for decades. In The Enemy at Home, Dubotzki's rediscovered photographs and never-before-published excerpts from inmates' diaries reveal what life was like inside the Holsworthy, Berrima and Trial Bay internment camps. Dubotzki's stunning images offer a rare and surprising snapshot of the theatrical events, small businesses and sports that boosted the men's spirits.

              Interactive Problem Solving Using Logo
               

              Interactive Problem Solving Using Logo (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              This book is unique in that its stress is not on the mastery of a programming language, but on the importance and value of interactive problem solving. The authors focus on several specific interest worlds: mathematics, computer science, artificial intelligence, linguistics, and ...games; however, their approach can serve as a model that may be applied easily to other fields as well. Those who are interested in symbolic computing will find that Interactive Problem Solving Using LOGO provides a gentle introduction from which one may move on to other, more advanced computational frameworks or more formal analysis. What is of primary importance, however, is the text's ability -- through its presentation of rich, open-ended problems -- to effectively cultivate crucial cognitive skills.

              The Dragon Mother's Dream: A Year in La Jolla California Journal
               

              The Dragon Mother's Dream: A Year in La Jolla California Journal (Paperback)

              This is the story of a journey to Southern California, home of the American Dream, in search of fame and fortune. An Australian couple of mixed German-Chinese origin with their six-year old son Maximilian leave their settled life in Sydney to move to California. The boy's Manda...rin name is Xiaolong, meaning Little Dragon, and the dream of his mother is that he will one day become the number one golf player in the world. She has contacted Tiger Woods' first professional coach who is supposed to take the boy under his wings, and she is determined to make her dream come true. The book follows Maximilian's exposure to playing junior golf, the highlights and pitfalls along with the emotional ups and downs of children involved in competitive sport, and their parents' sometimes conflicting and contradictory expectations, culminating in an account of Maximilian competing at the Junior World Championship in San Diego. But 'The Dragon Mother's Dream' is more than a book about golf. Part travelogue and part parenting memoir, it is a journal about living in one of the most privileged places in California. It documents the everyday realities and idiosyncracies of the contemporary American way of life, recorded with great precision and attention to detail by an Australian writer of European roots and - sometimes satirical, often ironic - sensibilities. At the end of the book, the mother's dream takes an unexpected twist.

              In Zeiten von Globalisierung, Internet und zunehmendem Wettbewerb gibt es nur mehr wenige M rkte, die entsprechendes Wachstumspotential bieten.Einer davon ist der Kontraktlogistikmarkt, insbesondere der Bereich Maschinen- und Anlagenbau, in dem auch das Unternehmen Logistik Servi...ce GmbH aktiv ist. Um die Wettbewerbsf higkeit zu steigern, werden in dieser Arbeit u.a. Optimierungspotentiale f r diese Branche mit Hilfe von Informationstechnologie diskutiert.Anfangs wird der Begriff der Kontraktlogistik definiert und gegen ber dem anderer Logistikdienstleister abgegrenzt. Dabei kann klargestellt werden, am Markt erfolgt eine Ann herung des Dienstleistungsangebotes von Kontraktlogistik und Spedition, somit wird die Wettbewerbssituation noch kritischer. Als die drei wesentlichen Dienstleistungen in der Kontraktlogistik sind Warehousing, Auftragsabwicklung und die Transportabwicklung zu nennen. Ein Weg, sich dem Mitbewerber zu entziehen, ist die Aneignung von Kernkompetenzen im Bereich der IT, um Zusatzleistungen in diesem Bereich anbieten zu k nnen.Um diese Wettbewerbsvorteile zu erreichen, kann eine Systemlandschaft, die gezielt darauf ausgerichtet ist, externe Gesch ftspartner schnell zu inkludieren, eine effiziente L sung sein. Daf r ist zun chst Prozessmanagement-Know-how gefragt und erst im zweiten Schritt kann nach einer informationstechnologischen L sung je Gesch ftsprozess gesucht werden. In der Kontraktlogistikbranche gibt es auf Seiten der IT keine umfassende Standardsoftware, vielmehr besteht die IT-Architektur des Dienstleisters aus vielen Bausteinen, die ber eine Integrationsplattform miteinander verbunden werden. Die einzelnen Module k nnen sowohl Standard- als auch Individualsoftware sein.Die gewonnenen theoretischen Erkenntnisse werden im Unternehmen Logistik Service GmbH praktisch angewendet. Insbesondere die Prozessaufnahme sowie die Optimierung der Abl ufe sind essentiell. Das wesentliche Ergebnis ist, es gibt keine Standardsoftware die alles a
