The author guides us through every corner of this fascinating region, where they have spent much of their time over many years. Gaudi's Sagrada Familia in Barcelona is one of the most unusual churches in the world, with its melting sand-castle appearance and odd, bubble-shaped spires. Catalonia's Costa Brava provides stunning views, as the Mediterranean waves clash with the jagged coastline. The stretch of small resort cities along the Costa Brava, which means the Rugged Coast, feels like a world caressed by the heavens. Stand above the rocks and look down to the sweeping coastline, the sea stretching endlessly. Relax at a seaside bar, sipping cocktails. Hike the trails leading from the shore to the hills above. Unlike the tourist-swarmed French Riviera, the Costa Brava is intimate. It's like discovering a well-guarded secret. There are several busy resort cities, but there are also many quiet and isolated beaches. Some of the prime beach cities include Roses, L'Escala and Blanes. Mountain-climbing destinations, ski resorts, spa villages, Gallo-Roman ruins and prehistoric cave paintings are abundant in the region. Catelonia is marked by breathtaking cliffs, expanses of beaches, and the thriving, hip seaside city of Barcelona. In the Navarre region, men taunt large, dangerous animals for Pamplona's annual Running of the Bulls. Andorra is its own little world, and not just because it's a 290-square-mile independent principality (a fifth the size of Rhode Island). Nestled atop some of the highest peaks of the Pyrenees, the principality is filled with amazing architecture, surreal panoramic views, and some of Europe's finest skiing resorts. Andorra attracts tourists for its duty-free shopping alone. Because many visitors are French and Spanish residents seeking bargains, there is a very authentic European flair to a vacation here. 1.

Research Paper (postgraduate) from the year 2010 in the subject Psychology - General, grade: A, Atlantic International University (Atlantic International University), course: Doctorate Degree course, language: English, abstract: The Second World War (WWII) was fought by America's 'Great Generation' (Brokaw 1998) when the war ended, all who had been involved, both in military and civilian capacities, celebrated. Then began the task of creating the postwar nation and society. Perhaps because of their wartime challenges, the predominant values of this Greatest Generation have been identified as 'responsibility, duty, honor, and faith'(Brokaw, 1998).Because they had experienced the sacrifices and the atrocities of war, their maturation processes were accelerated. In record numbers, they married and gave birth to a phenomenal number of infants, 76million in the 18years between 1946 and 1964. This group of infants, now between 40 and 58 year old, became known as the baby boomer generation. Many researchers (Moen 1998; Morgan 1998; wong, 2002) have described this generation as unique beyond its number. The year 1946, with the return of the soldiers from WWII, unstandably seen as the beginning of the baby boomer generation, whereas 1964 is viewed as the end of the 'boom'. In1965, the fertility rate in America returned to pre-WWII levels. Consider, for example that member of the baby boomer generation(76million) make up over 40% of the adult population in the United states. When compared with their parents (26 million) and those who followed members of Generation X(46million). The first of the baby boomers entered their 7th decade of life in 2006, and they constituted the largest number of persons ever born in a single generation(in case only 18years) from 1905 until the end of the 20th century in the United states. Baby boomers some of whom has attended the age of 55 to 60 in the year 2006, which make up the largest 5 year of age group born in the 20th century(Morgan 1998). The appearance of such a large population bubble containing a record number of aging individual led Wong(2002) to comment if aging was a disease in this country, public heath might declare it a national epidemic(p.3).

Robert howled again, and this time a single voice replied. Long, haunting sounds, beautifully modulated. They chilled Jo. Seconds later came a more distant wailing chorus. 'We've got company,' Robert said. 'Two different groups.' All three raised their binoculars. 'There' said Jo, pointing. When Dr. Jo Settle, a Michigan Tech University biology professor, becomes involved with PhD student Robert Peterson, she is unaware of his scheme to steal and relocate two packs of wolves from Wisconsin to a wilderness area in West Virginia. But events quickly spin out of control, thrusting Jo from the placid groves of academe into a terrifying battle of wits and weaponry in the Appalachian coal country. Jo's brother Cal, a Civil War park docent recovering from failure in both his marriage and the dot-com bubble, tries to help his sister navigate the treacherous dilemma with Robert. Jo's mentor, Theo Rosenbloom, head of Tech's biology department, and Robert's lifelong friend Hassan, a second-generation Arab American, also become caught up in Robert's intrigue. Home Range combines a page-turning crime novel with a sober environmental sensitivity. Driving the plot are issues from today's news: What does it mean to be an immigrant in America? In fact, who is a native and who is an American? Do we have a duty to protect native species and our environment? And what do we lose for ourselves and our descendants if we don't?

The Japanese employment system

Seminar paper from the year 2006 in the subject Sociology - Work, Profession, Education, Organisation, grade: 1,7, University of Osnabrück, course: Economical and Technical Development and Organisation, WS 05/06, 23 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: After Japan recovered from the disastrous defeat of World War II, its enormous economic growth provided a series of questions to the world's leading economists. With constant growth rates over 11% on average in the 1960s, Japan had the world's second largest GDP. Seeking explanations and reasons for this phenomenon, soon a couple of important influences on the Japanese economy were found. The increased demands on Japanese products during the conflicts in Vietnam after the Second World War (which led to the Vietnam War 1964-1973) and the Korean War 1950 to 1953 as well as the government aid for selected industries and protective duty accelerated its growth, which exceeded all former expectations1. Another important element of the Japanese prosperity was met with the Japanese-style employment system2. What would primarily influence the image of the Japanese to the further decades, the industrious, never sleeping blue-collar and white-collar workers, fulfilling a life for the company in a state of mutual dependence, is the result of an elaborate employment system. And in fact, lifetime employment, a predetermined career path and the seniority-based wage system were established to commit the regular workers to 'their' company, while the temporary workers still did not reach a similar status. This 'Japanese Model', as several authors call it, is subject to constant change. Even though the system was never fixed, it changed its surface not before the 'collapse of the bubble' in 1990. Shortly after this prolonged economic recession, which forced every industrialised country to undertake economic restructuring, Japan was able to recover very fast through strict rationalisation and a revision of its employment system. Today, Japan has changed. Still the second largest economy of the world, it has to confront an economic growth close to 2%. With this comes a call for a more flexible employment system which still has to pay the regular workers who many years ago were attracted with the seniority-based wage system reflecting the workers higher needs in subsequent years. Furthermore, the new generation of workers is organised in unions and knows their value to the market, and would not agree earning half the sum a senescent worker does.
