Sammler des verlorenen Schatzes. Ein waghalsiger Forscher begibt sich auf eine der abenteuerlichsten Expeditionen, die es je gab: Alfred Russel Wallace und seine Forschungsreise ins Amazonasgebiet. Auf eigene Faust bricht der Naturenthusiast Alfred Russel Wallace im Jahr 1848 von England nach Brasilien auf, um die Tier- und Pf lanzenwelt am Amazonas zu erforschen. Wallace schlägt sich von Pará (heute Belém) aus zu den Oberläufen des Rio Negro durch – und gelangt dabei in Gegenden, die noch kein Europäer vor ihm betreten hatte. Die Beobachtung der Affen- und Schmetterlingsarten an beiden Flussufern bringt ihn erstmals auf die Spur der Evolutionstheorie, die er später zeitgleich mit Charles Darwin entwickeln wird. Die Erträge seiner Expedition sind großartig, das Unternehmen endet jedoch in einer Katastrophe: Von Krankheiten, Sandf löhen (die ihre Eier unter seine Zehennägel legen) und den ewigen Kriebelmücken geplagt, ist Wallace am Ende so ausgezehrt, dass er nur mit der Hilfe der Einheimischen überlebt. Die aber trinken den Alkohol, mit dem eigentlich die Fundstücke konserviert werden sollten; und Horden von Ameisen machen sich über die Sammlung her. Auf dem Rückweg setzt Wallace alles auf eine Karte: Er selbst, seine Aufzeichnungen und Zigtausende Sammlungsstücke treten auf dem Zweimaster Helen die Heimreise an. Auf hoher See bricht an Bord ein Feuer aus. Die Besatzung kann sich auf Beiboote retten. Doch für Wallace’ Sammlung, auch für die lebenden Affen und Vögel, die in England an Zoos und Sammler verkauft werden sollten, gibt es keine Rettung. Nur einen einzigen Papagei kann Wallace lebend aus dem Wasser fischen. Der gesamte Ertrag seiner Reise versinkt in den Fluten des Ozeans. Zurück in England, rekonstruiert Wallace seine Erlebnisse anhand von wenigen Notizen und Erinnerungen. Seinen Reisebericht, sowohl Abenteuerroman, Forschungsgeschichte und frühes Zeugnis der Suche nach dem Ursprung der Arten, gab es auf Deutsch nur 1855 in einer stark verstümmelten Fassung – nun, nach über 150 Jahren, wird er endlich für die deutschsprachige Leserschaft erschlossen!

Students in countries such as Finland, South Korea, and Singapore continue to outperform their peers in America. But that hasn’t stopped the United States government from spending more money on education as achievement plummets. Dr. Vicky Wells, a former school principal, explores what’s going on at the federal, state, and local levels so that members of the public can hold bureaucrats accountable. In a series of reality checks, she explains how to • meet the growing crisis head on; • equip students with the necessary skills upon graduation; • make decisions based upon the input of real-life educators; and • ignore politics in order to best serve students. Teachers and parents trust leaders to make decisions based on what’s best for the students. Even so, all too often, decision making seems to be more about politics and quid pro quo—and this does not best serve students, educators, or the community. The educational system continues to decline, and students keep dropping out or graduating without the knowledge they need to succeed. It’s time to stop constantly changing curriculum and start focusing on the real problems confronting teachers and students.

Den Gedanken, Menschen in seiner Funktionsweise als Maschine zu begreifen, verfolgte nicht nur Julien Offray de La Mettrie, er aber tat dies mit einer besonderen Vehemenz. Diese Eindringlichkeit in der Sache ist bestimmt auch dem Umstand geschuldet, dass er nicht nur Philosoph, sondern auch Arzt war, der den Körper als ganzes betrachtete und so wusste, dass im menschlichen Körper Alles mit Allem im Zusammenhang steht.

Many building projects are the subject of claims – the assertion of a right, usually by the contractor, to an extension of the contract period or an additional payment under the terms of the building contract. Many of these claims are unsound or ill-founded, often because the basic principles are misunderstood. This highly regarded book examines the legal basis of claims for extensions of time and additional payment, and what can and cannot be claimed under the main forms of contract. It includes chapters dealing with direct loss and expense, liquidated damages, extension of time, concurrency problems, acceleration, time at large, common law and contractual claims, global claims, and heads of claim and their substantiation. With the publication of the fifth edition, Building Contract Claims has been thoroughly revised to ensure it is fully up to date with the latest contracts, court judgments and building practice. Changes include: Coverage of over 60 additional relevant court cases Coverage of the 2005 JCT contracts suite Coverage of changes to the NEC contract Coverage of additional contracts such as Constructing Excellence; Measured Term Contract and the ACA PPC2000 contract together with the 2005 relevant JCT sub-contracts Important changes to liquidated damages and to extensions of time, and the giving of notices Appendix 1 has been substantially revised Like its predecessors, the fifth edition of Building Contract Claims will be essential reading for architects, contract administrators, project managers and quantity surveyors, as well as contractors, contracts consultants and construction lawyers.
