Sind wir nicht alle davon überzeugt, dass wir am besten mit äußeren Anreizen wie Geld und Prestige oder durch "Zuckerbrot und Peitsche" zu motivieren sind? "Alles falsch", sagt Daniel H. Pink in seinem provokanten und zukunftsweisenden Buch. Das Geheimnis unseres persönlichen Erfolges ist das zutiefst menschliche Bedürfnis, unser Leben selbst zu bestimmen, zu lernen, Neues zu erschaffen und damit unsere Lebensqualität und unsere Welt zu verbessern. Daniel H. Pink enthüllt die Widersprüche zwischen dem, was die Wissenschaft weiß, und dem, was die Wirtschaft tut – und wie genau dies jeden Aspekt unseres Lebens beeinflusst. Er demonstriert, dass das Prinzip von Bestrafung und Belohnung exakt der falsche Weg ist, um Menschen für die Herausforderungen von Heute zu motivieren, egal ob in Beruf oder Privatleben. In "Drive" untersucht er die drei Elemente der wirklichen Motivation – Selbstbestimmung, Perfektionierung und Sinnerfüllung – und bietet kluge sowie überraschende Techniken an, um diese in die Tat umzusetzen. Daniel H. Pink stellt uns Menschen vor, die diese neuen Ansätze zur Motivation bereits erfolgreich in ihr Leben integriert haben und uns damit entschlossen einen außergewöhnlichen Weg in die Zukunft zeigen.

The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us

Forget everything you thought you knew about how to motivate people—at work, at school, at home. It's wrong. As Daniel H. Pink (author of To Sell Is Human: The Surprising Truth About Motivating Others) explains in his paradigm-shattering book Drive, the secret to high performance and satisfaction in today's world is the deeply human need to direct our own lives, to learn and create new things, and to do better by ourselves and our world. Drawing on four decades of scientific research on human motivation, Pink exposes the mismatch between what science knows and what business does—and how that affects every aspect of our lives. He demonstrates that while the old-fashioned carrot-and-stick approach worked successfully in the 20th century, it's precisely the wrong way to motivate people for today's challenges. In Drive, he reveals the three elements of true motivation: *Autonomy—the desire to direct our own lives *Mastery—the urge to get better and better at something that matters *Purpose—the yearning to do what we do in the service of something larger than ourselves Along the way, he takes us to companies that are enlisting new approaches to motivation and introduces us to the scientists and entrepreneurs who are pointing a bold way forward. Drive is bursting with big ideas—the rare book that will change how you think and transform how you live.

A Road Trip Through Our Complicated Affair With The Automobile

Liberation, lust, envy, rage, power, thrill—our cars provoke enough emotion to jam a six-lane highway. If you name your ride, reminisce about sex in the back seat or enjoy roaring down the open road, you know why we love our wheels. But if you hate traffic, curse at the price at the pump or fight over parking spaces, you know why we hate them too. Drive is a cross-continent adventure that explores where our fuel-injected dreams have taken us. Award-winning journalist Tim Falconer invites us on his road trip as he meets vintage car enthusiasts on Route 66, rides along in a police cruiser, kicks the tires at a Las Vegas auto show and takes a hydrogen-powered car for a spin. Steering us along North America's interstates and blue highways, meandering through small towns, sprawling suburbs and walkable neighbourhoods, Falconer shows us the growing collision of cars and people. In this complicated affair, who's really in the driver's seat? Can smart growth, public transit and complete streets free us? A spirited, front-seat view of quirky locals and locales, Drive looks at what auto-dominated life means to our health, environment and communities. Falconer also opens the door on British and Argentine car cultures, and considers the road ahead for China and India, nations with increasingly American attitudes. As billions grab their keys, can we avoid carmageddon? "[A] fascinating survey of the automobile and its effect on society … A fun book about a serious topic." —Winnipeg Free Press "Essential reading for any Canadian intrigued by the conundrum of finding better ways to get from here to there." —Spacing magazine

Millionaire Robert Stanley is in Monte Carlo—his yacht Blue Skies in port, a beautiful woman on his lap, and his bodyguard Donald Herman standing nearby, ever vigilant. Robert Stanley is enjoying all the benefits of wealth, little knowing he’s about to die. Stanley’s death behind the wheel of his blue Mercedes seems like an accident, but there is no denying many people wanted the man dead. As an executive, Stanley had been ruthless, gleefully driving competitors into bankruptcy and—it has rumored—suicide. He gained control of his company by turning the board of directors against his own father, an act that cemented his reputation as a merciless egomaniac. Stanley’s behavior at home mirrored his business dealings. Cruel and lascivious, his infidelity drove his wife to suicide. Blamed for her death by his children, Stanley worked to isolate them from each other, leaving them only a small trust from their mother for expenses. No, Robert Stanley is not mourn, but was his death murder? In addition, if so, was he the target of a family plot or organized crime? A tense thriller from the mind of Alan Douglas, Bad Mood Drive will keep you guessing until its shocking conclusion.

The 100 Best Teen Movies

Acclaimed writer of This is Uncool and Popcorn turns his attention to the (first ever) look at the teen movie Everyone undergoes some kind of teenage trauma, and a fundamental way of coping, or rite of passage, is the teen movie. Yet until now there has been no book that explores this successful movie sub-genre with any depth. Step forward Garry Mulholland, who, taking his cue from his previous, hugely acclaimed pop culture list books (This is Uncool and Fear of Music), seeks to create a pantheon of the very finest teen movies, or in Garry Mulholland's words: 'I'll be doing what film critics have been loathe to do since the 1950s, and taking the entire subculture of teen movies seriously, making a constant and compelling argument that Grease and A Nightmare on Elm Street tell us a great deal more about modern life and human nature than Citizen Kane and The Godfather.' From Kes to Fame, Badlands to the Breakfast Club, and National Lampoon's Animal House to Twilight, Garry Mulholland re-evaluates a much maligned genre, and brings it all back again: the good, the bad and the traumatic.

Although the dreadful toll of random violence is often reported, rarely do we glimpse the human element behind it. News reports keep the tally of homicides, but as the occurrence of such violence increases, so does its facelessness. Drive-by shootings are almost definitively anonymous, there are no fingerprints, no fibers, no hairs, nor any other telltale clues typical of most crime scenes. There is usually no hard evidence beyond ballistics and a car description so generic it is virtually useless. In Drive-By, Gary Rivlin penetrates the anonymity of one such incident and creates an extraordinary portrait of the people entangled in it. He takes us behind the headlines, and through bold investigative reporting, finds the individuals so often left out of the story. In this real-life narrative, we meet the teens who, on Sunday, the eighth of July, were involved in a scuffle over a bicycle, and on the ninth became murderers and victims. By presenting the story of this murder in human terms, Rivlin challenges the stereotypes and indifference that allow the problem of inner-city violence to escalate.

Die nichtlineare Erzählstruktur des postmodernen Films am Beispiel "Mulholland Drive" von David Lynch

Page: 162

Inhaltsangabe:Zusammenfassung: Die vorliegende Arbeit untersucht die Filmnarration des (post)modernen Kinos. Besonderes Augenmerk liegt auf der unkonventionellen Erzählstruktur, die entgegen dem klassischen Hollywoodkino vorgeht. Die Filmanalyse (Hauptteil) beschäftigt sich näher mit David Lynchs „Mulholland Drive” und belegt inwieweit dieser Film postmodern ist. Theoretisch und mit Beispielen aus der Filmgeschichte wird im ersten Teil eine Abgrenzung zwischen dem modernen und postmodernen Film vorgenommen. Der moderne Film wird charakterisiert. Vorgehensweisen gegen das konventionelle Hollywoodkino werden erörtert. Nähergebracht wird dies durch verschiedene Beispiele, u.a. durch Sergej M. Eisensteins Ästhetik der Grossaufnahme, die Auflösung der Filmnarration bei Luis Bunuel oder Maya Derens Auflösung von Zeit und Raum zugunsten einer flüssigen Bewegung. Weiter wird die französische Nouvelle Vague besprochen. Demgegenüber wird der postmoderne Film, von mir als Reflektion auf die Medienwelt verstanden, näher analysiert. Anhand mehrerer Kriterien wird die Abgrenzung vom modernen Kino beschrieben. Definiert von mir sind folgende Merkmale eines postmodernen Films: - Postmodernes Kino als Medienreflexion. - Die Doppelcodierung. - Die fragmentierte Struktur des postmodernen Films. - Die Künstlichkeit des Dargestellten. - Überwältigung der Sinne. - Autonomie der synästhetischen Reize oder Hierarchieschwund. Diese Kriterien werden im Hauptteil auf das Werk von David Lynch übertragen. Auf die Frage, ob „Mulholland Drive” ein postmoderner Film ist, wird unter Einbezug anderer Filme Lynchs detailliert eingegangen. Neben biographischen und filmographischen Daten zu David Lynch ermöglicht uns die Filmanalyse näher in das Spektrum dieses surrealen Films einzutauchen, denn Verweise zur Nichtlinearität finden sich im gesamten Filmtext. Lynchsche Codierungen werden mit Beispielen erläutert und die Ähnlichkeit zwischen der Traum- und der Filmerzählung werden anhand einiger Kriterien auf „Mulholland Drive” übertragen. Dieses Wissen macht eine Deutung des Films mit hoher Wahrscheinlichkeit möglich. Letztendlich ist diese Arbeit eine Reise in die Filmgeschichte, die (Post)moderne und in die unterbewussten und surrealen Welten des Filmemachers David Lynchs.

Much later, as he sat with his back against an inside wall of a Motel 6 just north of Phoenix, watching the pool of blood lap toward him, Driver would wonder whether he had made a terrible mistake. Later still, of course, there'd be no doubt. But for now Driver is, as they say, in the moment. And the moment includes this blood lapping toward him, the pressure of dawn's late light at windows and door, traffic sounds from the interstate nearby, the sound of someone weeping in the next room .Thus begins Drive, a new novella by one of the nation's most respected and honored writers of noir fiction. Set mostly in Arizona and L.A., the story is, according to Sallis, ''about a guy who does stunt driving for movies by day and drives for criminals at night. In classic noir fashion, he is double - crossed and, though before he has never participated in the violence ('I drive. That's all.'), he goes after the ones who doublecrossed and tried to kill him.''

The Drive-in, the Supermarket, and the Transformation of Commercial Space in Los Angeles, 1914-1941

Publisher: MIT Press

Category: Architecture

Page: 248

View: 2398

Winner of the 2000 Historic Preservation Book Prize presented by the University of Mary Washington Center for Historic Preservation Richard Longstreth is one of the few historians to focus on ordinary commercial buildings—buildings usually associated with commercial builders and real estate developers rather than architects and thus generally overlooked by historians of "high" architecture. Here Longstreth explores the early development of two kinds of retail space that have become ubiquitous in the United States in the second half of the twentieth century. One, external, is devoted to the circulation and parking of automobiles on retail premises. Longstreth analyzes the origins of this development in the 1910s and 1920s, with the super service station and then the drive-in market. The other type of space, internal, was introduced soon thereafter with the single-story supermarket. The most innovative aspect of the supermarket was how its interior was designed for high-volume turnover of a large selection of goods with a minimum of staff assistance. Longstreth focuses on Los Angeles, the principal center for the development of both kinds of space, during the period from the mid-1910s to the early 1940s. This richly illustrated study integrates architectural, cultural, economic, and urban factors to describe the evolution of retailing and how it has affected the urban landscape.
