DEUTSCHLANDS FINALEWar es eine spontan einsetzende menschliche Regung der Pastorentochter Merkel, die deutschen Grenzen pl�tzlich in Gutsherrenart ohne parlamentarische Entscheidung f�r Fl�chtlinge zu �ffnen?Ist es Zufall, dass daraufhin wie auf Kommando junge, kr�ftige M�nner in unser Land marschieren, die oft keinen Pass, aber immer ein Smartphone bei sich haben?Wie kommt es, dass einige von ihnen gar keinen schutzsuchenden Eindruck hinterlassen, sondern mit konkreter Erwartungshaltung in unser Land gekommen sind?Warum sind nicht alle dankbar, sondern teilweise hoch kriminell?Warum erfahren wir relevante Zusammenh�nge zwischen Taten und Herkunft der T�ter selten in der Presse?Warum versuchen die Medien, jeden dieser Zusammenh�nge krampfhaft zu entkr�ften oder zu entschuldigen?Warum setzt man auch in Deutschland keine deutlichen Grenzen f�r kriminelle Zuwanderer, sondern entschuldigt fast jedes Fehlverhalten?Achtzehn Freunde und ich beschreiben unsere Erfahrungen und Einsch�tzungen der Lage.Mein pers�nlicher Eindruck nach den Berichten meiner Freunde:Wir sollten nicht zu gutgl�ubig sein.In der Politik gibt es selten Zuf�lle.Was hier stattfindet, ist nicht nur ein Rechtsbruch der Politik, sondern ein Angriff auf Europa und insbesondere Deutschland!Der Krieg ist nicht vorbei!Der letzte Angriff auf das Volk l�uft...Deutschlands Finale beginnt!Taschenbuch, 160 Seiten, ca. 31.000 W�rter, Lesezeit: ca. 2 Stunden (250 W�rter / Min.)

Question answering (QA) has become one of the fastest growing topics in computational linguistics and information access. To advance research in the area of dialogue-based question answering, we propose a combination of methods from different scientific fields (i.e., Information Retrieval, Dialogue Systems, Semantic Web, and Machine Learning). This book sheds light on adaptable dialogue-based question answering. We demonstrate the technical and computational feasibility of the proposed ideas, the introspective methods in particular, by beginning with an extensive introduction to the dialogical problem domain which motivates the technical implementation. The ideas have been carried out in a mature natural language processing (NLP) system, the SmartWeb dialogue system, which was developed between 2004 and 2007 by partners from academia and industry. We have attempted to make this book a self-containing text and provide an extra section on the interdisciplinary scientific background. The target audience for this book comprises of researchers and students interested in the application potential of semantic technologies for difficult AI tasks such as working dialogue and QA systems.

The warships of the World War II era German Navy are among the most popular subject in naval history with an almost uncountable number of books devoted to them. However, for a concise but authoritative summary of the design history and careers of the major surface ships it is difficult to beat a series of six volumes written by Gerhard Koop and illustrated by Klaus-Peter Schmolke. Each contains an account of the development of a particular class, a detailed description of the ships, with full technical details, and an outline of their service, heavily illustrated with plans, battle maps and a substantial collection of photographs. These have been out of print for ten years or more and are now much sought after by enthusiasts and collectors, so this new modestly priced reprint of the series will be widely welcomed.??This volume covers the three ships of a design so revolutionary that it defied conventional categories. Deutschland (later renamed LÙtzow), Admiral Scheer and Admiral Graf Spee were simply termed panzerschiffe (armoured ships) by the Germans, but they were known to their opponents by the far more evocative term Pocket Battleships.

The German War
Author: Nicholas Stargardt
Publisher: Basic Books
As early as 1941, Allied victory in World War II seemed all but assured. How and why, then, did the Germans prolong the barbaric conflict for three and a half more years? In The German War, acclaimed historian Nicholas Stargardt draws on an extraordinary range of primary source materials—personal diaries, court records, and military correspondence—to answer this question. He offers an unprecedented portrait of wartime Germany, bringing the hopes and expectations of the German people—from infantrymen and tank commanders on the Eastern front to civilians on the home front—to vivid life. While most historians identify the German defeat at Stalingrad as the moment when the average German citizen turned against the war effort, Stargardt demonstrates that the Wehrmacht in fact retained the staunch support of the patriotic German populace until the bitter end. Astonishing in its breadth and humanity, The German War is a groundbreaking new interpretation of what drove the Germans to fight—and keep fighting—for a lost cause.

In the mid-1990s, two major Hollywood studios, Warner Bros. and Paramount Pictures, each launched their own broadcast television network with the hope of becoming the fifth major player in an industry long dominated by ABC, CBS, NBC, and, more recently, Fox. Despite the odds against them, the WB and UPN went on to alter the landscape of primetime television, only to then merge as the CW network in 2006—each a casualty of conflicting personalities, relentless competition, and a basic failure to anticipate the future of the entertainment business. Unfolding amid this backdrop of high-stakes business ventures, fanatical creative struggles, and corporate power plays, Season Finale traces the parallel stories of the WB and UPN from their prosperous beginnings to their precipitous demise. Following the big money, big egos, and big risks of network television, Susanne Daniels, a television executive with the WB for most of its life, and Cynthia Littleton, a longtime television reporter for Variety, expose the difficult reality of trying to launch not one but two traditional broadcast networks at the moment when cable television and the Internet were ending the dominance of network television. Through in-depth reportage and firsthand accounts, Daniels and Littleton expertly re-create the creative and business climate that gave birth to the WB and UPN, illustrating how the race to find suitable programming spawned a heated rivalry between the two but also created shows that became icons of American youth culture. Offering insider stories and never-before-published details about shows such as Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Dawson's Creek, 7th Heaven, Gilmore Girls, Smallville, Felicity, Girlfriends, Everybody Hates Chris, and America's Next Top Model, Daniels and Littleton provide an exhaustive account of the two creative teams that ushered these groundbreaking programs into the hearts, minds, and living rooms of Americans across the country. But in spite of these successes, the WB and UPN unraveled, and here the authors elucidate the corporate miscalculations that led to their undoing, examining the management missteps and industry upheaval that brought about their rapid decline and the surprising teamwork that united them as the CW. The result is a cautionary and compelling entertainment saga that skillfully captures a precarious moment in television history, when the dramatic transformation of the broadcast networks signaled an inevitable shift for all pop culture.
