College Bound? College Bound Organizer is your step-by-step comprehensive guide to organize every step of the college application process from college search through college admission. College admissions is tougher than ever: Between now and 2020, about 90 million high schoolers in the U.S. will try to get into college. And, nearly three million students are expected to enroll as first-time freshmen in degree-granting institutions in the United States this school year. Each of these students will apply to many schools — five, 10, perhaps as many as 20 — and each of those applications has a daunting number of T’s to cross and I’s to dot. With standardized test taking and school visits, the college application essay to write and forms to fill out, there is so much to do. Applying to college is intimidating and overwhelming for both teenagers and parents. “Planning ahead and “getting there first” can do more than help students get into a good college — it can provide them with life skills, a solid education, and lifelong friends.” – Business Insider If you intend to be college bound: The challenge is to be well informed, prepared, focused and organized throughout the multi-step college search and admission process. Your solution is The College Bound Organizer, the ultimate guide to help students effectively navigate this very complicated and stressful process.

Er war 25 Jahre lang Journalist, dann stand er von einem Tag auf den anderen auf der Straße: Dan Lyons wurde mit 52 Jahren einfach aus dem Team wegrationalisiert. Was also tun? Da kam das Jobangebot von HubSpot, einem Bostoner Start-up, genau richtig: Sie bieten dem altgedienten Journalisten einen Stapel Aktien für den nicht näher bestimmten Job des »Marketingtypen«. Was soll da schon schiefgehen? Doch es kommt, wie es bei der Konstellation kommen muss: Schnell wird klar, dass bei seinem Job bei HubSpot ungefähr alles schiefläuft, was schieflaufen kann. Seine Kollegen sind im Schnitt halb so alt, statt Bürostühlen gibt es Sitzbälle, Spam wird als »liebenswerter Marketingcontent« bezeichnet und überhaupt erinnert die Atmosphäre bei HubSpot eher an einen immerwährenden Kindergeburtstag. Dass das nicht lange gutgehen kann, ist vorprogrammiert ... Dieses Buch bietet einzigartige Einblicke in die Start-up-Welt!

Die 1970er-Jahre gelten in der deutschen Zeitgeschichte als Epoche eines tief greifenden sozialen Wandels, eines "Strukturbruchs " im Übergang von der Industriemoderne zur postfordistischen Gesellschaft. Die Beiträge dieses Bandes widmen sich diesem Jahrzehnt erstmals aus einer stadthistorischen Perspektive und stellen dabei Entwicklungen in Westdeutschland und Italien einander gegenüber. In Fallstudien zu Städten vom Ruhrgebiet bis Sizilien wird untersucht, wie sich die Umbrüche dieser Zeit im Brennpunkt von städtischem Raum und städtischer Gesellschaft verdichten, als "urbane Krise" wahrgenommen und verhandelt werden und sich in Konflikten in der städtischen Politik sowie Kämpfen in und um die Stadt manifestieren.

Das Buch ist eine kleine, kunstfertige Anregung zur weiblichen Selbsterkenntnis, eine liebevolle Aufforderung an alle Frauen, den eigenen Weg zur Lust zu finden. Gleichzeitig ist es ein entschiedenes Plädoyer gegen sexuelle Gewalt. Alte Damen und Mädchen, Singles, Ehefrauen, Lesben, Professorinnen, Arbeiterinnen, Schauspielerinnen, Prostituierte wurden von der Auto-rin zu ihrer Vagina befragt. Ihre unterschiedlichen Erfahrungen und Ausdrucksweisen geben dem Buch eine lebendige Vielfältigkeit. Witz und Leichtigkeit stehen neben Traurigem und Erschütterndem. Eve Ensler hat einer großen Bandbreite von Gefühlen eine poetische und charmante Form gegeben. Die Vagina-Monologe wurden zwei Jahre lang in einem New Yorker Off-Broadway-Theater gespielt und wurde dann auch in zahlreichen Städten Europas aufgeführt.
