High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Raab-Katzenstein was a 1920s German aircraft manufacturer based in Kassel. The main character of the company was its designer Gerhard Fieseler. Following World War I, he returned to printing, but yearned to return to flying. In 1926, he closed his print shop in Eschweiler and became a flight instructor with Raab-Katzenstein and continued to hone his flying skills, becoming an accomplished stunt pilot. In 1927, he performed a particularly daring routine in Zürich and started to command increasingly high fees for appearances. In 1928, he designed his own stunt plane, the Fieseler F1, built by Raab-Katzenstein. He also designed Raab-Katzenstein RK-26 Tigerschwalbe aircraft in the end of 1920s which was offered and sold to a Swedish company called AB Svenska Järnvägverkstaderna (ASJA), which build 25 of the type for Swedish Air Force in the beginning of 1930s.

Bachelorarbeit aus dem Jahr 2015 im Fachbereich Pädagogik - Schulpädagogik, Note: 1,0, Alice-Salomon Hochschule Berlin , Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: In dieser Arbeit werden Märchen in den Fokus des Berliner Bildungsprogramms sowie der einzelnen Bildungsbereiche gestellt und überprüft, inwiefern die vormals entstandenen Märchen in der Gegenwart für eine pädagogisch-reflektierte Arbeit mit Kindern/Jugendlichen genutzt werden können. Alle Völker der Welt besitzen Märchen, Mythen und Geschichten als kulturellen Bestandteil, beziehungsweise als Kulturtechnik, in der Überlieferung von mündlichem 'Erzählgut'. In Deutschland, aber auch weltweit haben die Kassler Handexemplare der Kinder- und Hausmärchen der Brüder Grimm, auch als Grimmsche Märchen bezeichnet, einen hohen Bekanntheitsgrad erreicht und sind im Jahr 2005 sogar von der UNESCO zum Weltdokumentenerbe erklärt worden. Die in der Romantik entstandenen Grimmschen Märchen, erfreuen schon über zweihundert Jahre vor allem Kinder und regen ihre Fantasie an, obwohl die Märchen zunächst nur zur Unterhaltung für Erwachsene geschrieben wurden. Seit ihrer Existenz polarisieren die Grimmschen Märchen die Wissenschaften, vor allem in Kreisen der Pädagogik. Gegner werfen ihnen moralisierende Einflussnahme und Gewaltdarstellung vor, Befürworter schwärmen von ihrer wunderbaren, fantasievollen Art und Weise, die Kinder anregt und ihnen hilft Ängste zu überwinden. All people have their own Fairy Tales, Myths and stories, they exist in common literacy in every culture of the world. In Germany, but also worldwide the Kassel 'Children`s and Household Tales' of the brothers Grimm now common known as 'Grimms Fairy Tales' have been very famous and also become in year 2005 at the UNESCO registery 'Memory of the Word'. Over two hundred years children loved the 'Grimms Fairy Tales', which have been written in the period of romanticism actually at their beginning only for adults. Since then, they have been polarizing a lot of scientists in many fields of knowledge, but most in pedagogics. Opponents find the Fairy Tales to moralizing and to cruel, supporters think Fairy Tales, including miracles and fantasy, help children to subdue fears and stimulate them. In this task Fairy Tales are discussed and analysed focussed on the Berlin educational standards and their diffrent subjects to investigate, if last centurys Fairy Tales can be used for a refelective pedagogical work with children and teens in the present time.

Seminar paper from the year 2009 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 2,0, University of Kassel, language: English, abstract: In summary, in this paper the poem 'Portrait of a Lady' written by T. S. Eliot has been placed in a beginning of the 20th century genre of portraiture in painting and regarded as a modern portrait. There is a remarkable similarity of techniques implied in Eliot's poem and used by modern portrait artists such as different media of expression, technique of deconstruc-tion, incomprehensible image and flatness. The poem represents a dual portrait of an elderly lady and her friend, the young narrator. Both figures are characterised by their dramatic monologues from different perspectives. A great deal of the impressive effect of the poem is achieved through dramatic verse that exactly express the tones of the lady's speech. The free verse and effects of rhythm help to provide this impression. The technique of disembodiment and fragmentation used by Eliot shows certain similarities to cubist portrait artists who broke the portrayed subject up and re-assembled it in a new form. Furthermore, 'Portrait of a Lady' provides a shifting succession of thoughts, consciousness, protean in its variety of music and tone and depicts the figures' internal drama without creating a comprehensible image of their appearance. In addition, the lady imitates in her speech Arnold and expresses her feelings through quotations and, therefore, is mentally absent, though she eliminates the narrator's consciousness of himself as facing her. However, the observer registers the look of absorption which dominates the imaginary face of the lady. This effect of flatness is directly connected with modern portrait painters such as Édouard Manet. Therefore, it can be concluded that Eliot's 'Portrait of a Lady' is a notable example of the modern portrait in poetry

Seminar paper from the year 2008 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 1,3, University of Kassel, language: English, abstract: The first reading of Toni Morrison's novel made me wonder why the author chose the title Jazz. It describes the difficulties various African Americans have in integrating themselves into the urban context of the North. The origin of this dilemma lies in unsolved problems, unprocessed experiences and in an incomplete reappraisal of the past. Identity, as it seems, needs to reconcile history and present. Blacks in northern cities at the beginning of the 20th century still suffered from the reverberations of slavery; the Great Migration out of the Old South and into the industrialized North with its promising opportunities had not settled these problems. In this paper, I want to examine jazz music and its function within the thematic frame of the story. Since history is of great importance in the novel, it is necessary to comprehensively outline the historical background of the story, which reaches from the late years of slavery up to the artistic blossom during the Harlem Renaissance. The development of the jazz culture then serves as a starting point for the analysis of musical elements in the novel. This embraces structural as well as stylistic parallels and also comments on the function of the unconventional narrator. The focus then turns to the main characters of the story, Joe and Violet Trace, to the problems they have with themselves and their marriage and the solution the author offers. Toni Morrison suggests that the problems of alienation and loss of identity result from a missing connection of past and present. A stable identity must be rooted in history, so the denial of one's origin is a dangerous violation of the self. Many studies dealing with Jazz have concentrated on the way Morrison transfers musical elements into a stylistic concept, but I want to show the connection between this narrative technique and the theme of the novel. In Jazz, jazz music is used as a metaphor for African American identity in its most productive form. The music successfully fuses African heritage and American tradition and is therefore an authentic expression of the African American self.

Seminar paper from the year 2005 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 1,7, University of Kassel, course: Hauptseminar 'Antebellum in American Short Fiction', 13 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: 'A skillful literary artist has constructed a tale, ... there should be no word written, of which the tendency, direct or indirect, is not to the one pre-established design...' Edgar Allan Poe, who was praised as given the title of 'one of the greatest journalistic critic of his time' by literary critics, stressed unity, totality, and prescribed design. And 'The Fall of the House of Usher', is proved to be a very successful story to demonstrate Poe's adherence of his own principle of constructiveness and his structural art. The intention of this research paper is, therefore, to examine how Poe emphasized unity of effect in theory and how it is fulfilled in practice especially in one of his best-known stories. In a close reading of 'Usher', the author is above all impressed by the melancholic tone that Poe obviously intends to raise at the very beginning of this story. For this reason, how Poe implements his technique by making tone obedient to the unity of effect will be first of all examined in this paper. Obviously, tone should be identified with atmosphere. According to Poe, unity of setting is another important requirement for achieving the unity of effect in prose writing, which will be studied in the second section. If, as critics maintain, characters are skilfully adapted to the circumstances which surround them are a general device in Poe's tales, it is in 'Usher' in particular. The third section intends to show how characters are made to fit into the desolate house and dreary environment to achieve the desired effect in this tale. Finally, with the ideal arrangement of effective tone, setting, characters, Poe gains his battlefield to carry out unity of effect in plot in 'Usher'. In order to attain the unity of plot in literary writing, Poe stressed both 'unity of time' and 'unity of action', as essential parts in his theory on unity of effect. In 'Usher', both of these aspects are completely fulfilled through the brief time span in which the story happens, a coherent plot line and a 'mutual relationship' between incidents. Hence, Poe's emphasis on unity of plot in theory, and how it is accomplished in 'Usher' in the last section will be explored in the last section of this paper. Consistent with Poe's theory of 'unity', 'totality' and 'full design', four aspects, namely tone, setting, characters and plot through which Poe attempts to create a vision of 'unity of effect' in this tale are examined in this paper.

Seminar paper from the year 2004 in the subject American Studies - Culture and Applied Geography, grade: 1 (A), University of Kassel (Anglistics/American Studies), course: The vote of the american president, 24 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: The question which role parties have in political life in the United States has concerned scholars for more than a century. Beginning with the introduction of the first statewide primaries in South Carolina in 1896, when the power of candidate nomination was taken away from party bosses and transferred to all party members or affiliates, there is a te ndency that parties lose influence not only in elections and other political processes, but also in everyday life in the United States. In this paper I will try to draw a rough outline of the discussion that has taken place in the last decades in order to give an overview on different theoretical approaches to the decline of party identification as well as on some of the consequences of this development. Naturally, this paper cannot deal with many other aspects of party identification, e.g. drawn from modernization theory or psychology.1 But, despite these limitations, the results presented in the concluding chapter provide some evidence for the thesis that U.S. Parties are in a state of decline and that this decline can have severe impacts on U.S. political and social life. This paper is structured as follows: In chapter 2, I will draw an outline of the different theoretical approaches to the concept of partisanship, ranging from socio-psychological attachment to Rational Choice theory and Multidimensional approaches. Chapter 3 is the longest part of this paper and deals with the reasons for the decline of party identification. After discussing some empirical data, I will turn to socio-economic factors leading to partisan dealignment before analysing the rise of issue and candidate voting. In chapter 4 I will present a brief outlook on some of the consequences of the decline of party identification on different levels of political and social life in the United States. The last chapter consists of a short summary of the findings of this paper and some concluding remarks.

Seminar paper from the year 2005 in the subject American Studies - Culture and Applied Geography, grade: 3,0, University of Kassel, language: English, abstract: In this paper, I will analyze Lyman Beecher's A Plea for the West with regard to his attitude towards immigration. In particular, I want to examine in how far the author supports the idea of nativism. On this account I will start by giving a definition of nativism and pointing out its different motivations; chapter 2.2 then shows the development of the concept as well as its political expression from the very beginning of the United States until now. Chapter three contains some background information, both about the author and the time he lived in, which I consider necessary for a deeper understanding of the primary source. The main part of my work, the analysis of A Plea for the West will follow in chapter four: At the beginning, I will describe what great potential the author sees in the American West and what problems he sees it faced with. Then, I will continue by investigating what attitude towards immigration in general and, in particular, towards Catholic immigration the author expresses in his work. What makes him support nativism, and which of its complex ideas does he support at all? Finally, I will point out what solution Lyman Beecher proposes for the problem of immigration in the American society with regard to the understanding of democracy he promotes in his work.

Seminar paper from the year 2002 in the subject American Studies - Culture and Applied Geography, grade: 1,0 / A, University of Kassel, course: Amerikanische Entwicklung im Spiegel ausgewählter Entscheidungen des Supreme Court, 13 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: 'Equal Justice Under Law' - this inscription is written above the main entrance of the Supreme Court building, proclaiming that every case and individual will be judged according to the same principles. Members of the court have the duty to come to a decision, which is free of personal and also political influences, a task that requires numerous virtues, among them independence, incorruptibility, and the self-confidence to apply new methods that might alter the country. Accordingly, the work of a Supreme Court justices makes high demands on a person and it is doubtful that any judge would be able to fulfill them. Yet from which point of view are these extraordinary individuals selected? And who has a right of codetermination in the appointment process? Since the Supreme Court is a major policy maker in the U.S, the appointments of the justices have a great impact on the future of the country. Consequently, the nominations are fundamental to a number of people, organizations and interest groups, as possible future decisions of the tribunal might transform society and American life. This paper will investigate the selection and nomination process of Supreme Court justices and the factors playing a role in the background. Beginning with an historical overview, we will take a closer look at the legal foundation and the early stages of the newestablished court. The second part attends to the qualification of justices and their ensuing appointment, also taking into consideration the various demographic factors that might influence a selection nowadays. Subsequently, the focus will be on interest groups and other society-relevant organizations, which take an interest in the tribunal and concentrate their attentio n on the selection of justices who are of importance to them. Finally, the thesis will go into the role presidents play in the selection procedure and to conclude I will summarize the results that follow from this work.
