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.

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.

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.''

Drive-in movie theaters and the horror films shown at them during the 1950s, 60s, and early 70s may be somewhat outdated, but they continue to enthrall movie buffs today. More than just fodder for the satirical cannons of Joe Bob Briggs and Mystery Science Theatre 3000, they appeal to knowledgeable fans and film scholars who understand their influence on American popular culture. This book is a collection of eighteen essays by various scholars on the classic drive-in horror film experience. Those in Section One emphasize the roles of the drive-in theater in the United States--and its cultural cousin, Australia. Section Two examines how horror operated at the drive-in, the rhetoric used in coming attraction trailers, horror film premieres at drive-ins, double features, and the preproduction, production, and marketing of Last House on the Left. Section Three addresses the effects of the Vietnam War and counter-culture on The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and the Cold War on Cat Women of the Moon. Section Four explores gender issues and sexuality, two of the most common and most important subjects of horror film analysis. Section Five covers drive-in culture via Hush...Hush, Sweet Charlotte, 2000 Maniacs, and the films of Mario Bava. Section Six investigates a variety of issues, such as the drive-in horror film's embrace of DNA, the use of cinematic form to create a non-Hollywood look in Wizard of Gore, and the many different prints and running times of I Drink Your Blood.

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.

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

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.

Blazing Miami sun. Cool classic cars. Dangerous undercover assignment. In Sidney Bristol's scorching new Hot Rides series, the cars are fast and the romance is furious… Aiden DeHart has a history--and secrets. His classic car garage is a front for an FBI operation. His current mission: get some evidence from a drug dealer's ex-wife, then get out. Madison Haughton sending his engine into overdrive isn't part of the plan, though, especially considering she might not be as innocent as Aiden thought… Since her divorce from her sleazeball ex, Madison has sworn off bad boys, gotten some sweet tattoos, and become a star of Miami's roller derby scene. But however fast she skates, her ex is always on her tail. When the sexy guy in the muscle car offers to help, he could be her ticket to safety--or a detour down a deadly road… "Will entice readers with its edgy feel...As intense as it is sensual, and readers will embark on a page-turning quest" --Publishers Weekly "Bristol opens her Hot Rides series in style with this quick-paced, clever, and wholly original romance. She neatly avoids the pitfalls of her chosen trope, making her damsel in distress a gutsy, tough and resourceful heroine, and her savior hero an honorable and honest man with his own insercurities underneath a rough exterior. Their chemistry is blistering, but their ability to share every aspect of themselves makes this relationship uniquely rewarding... Readers who sit back and enjoy the ride will find this a pleasurable read" -- RT Book Reviews, 4 Stars "Fast, furious, and full of heat!" --Julie Ann Walker, New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author

Harry Turtledove–the master of alternate history–has recast the tumultuous twentieth century and created an epic that is powerful, bold, and as convincing as it is provocative. In Drive to the East he continues his saga of warfare that has divided a nation and now threatens the entire world. In 1914, the First World War ignited a brutal conflict in North America, with the United States finally defeating the Confederate States. In 1917, The Great War ended and an era of simmering hatred began, fueled by the despotism of a few and the sacrifice of many. Now it’s 1942. The USA and CSA are locked in a tangle of jagged, blood-soaked battle lines, modern weaponry, desperate strategies, and the kind of violence that only the damned could conjure up–for their enemies and themselves. In Richmond, Confederate president and dictator Jake Featherston is shocked by what his own aircraft have done in Philadelphia–killing U.S. president Al Smith in a barrage of bombs. Featherston presses ahead with a secret plan carried out on the dusty plains of Texas, where a so-called detention camp hides a far more evil purpose. As the untested U.S. vice president takes over for Smith, the United States face a furious thrust by the Confederate army, pressing inexorably into Pennsylvania. But with the industrial heartland under siege, Canada in revolt, and U.S. naval ships fighting against the Japanese in the Sandwich Islands, the most dangerous place in the world may be overlooked.

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

Author: Richard W. Longstreth

Publisher: MIT Press

ISBN: 9780262621427

Category: Architecture

Page: 248

View: 2643

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.

A History from Their Inception in 1933

A primarily American institution (though it appeared in other countries such as Japan and Italy), the drive-in theater now sits on the verge of extinction. During its heyday, drive-ins could be found in communities both large and small. Some of the larger theaters held up to 3,000 cars and were often filled to capacity on weekends. The history of the drive-in from its beginnings in the 1930s through its heyday in the 1940s and 1950s to its gradual demise in modern-day America is thoroughly documented here: the patent battles, community concerns with morality (on-screen and off), technological advances (audio systems, screens, etc.), audiences, and the drive-in's place in the motion picture industry.

Gangbangs and Drive-Bys

Grounded Culture and Juvenile Gang Violence

Author: William B. Sanders

Publisher: Transaction Publishers

ISBN: 9780202366210

Category: Social Science

Page: 198

View: 2069

This study, based on quantitative and qualitative data gathered over a twelve-year period, takes its title from the two predominant styles of gang violence: “drive-bys,” which have replaced “rumbles” as the primary form of gang violence; and “gang-bangs”—a generic term for other gang violence that includes assaults, knifings, and beatings. The author attempts to understand the situations in which a young man would drive up to another human being and, without further ado, blow his head off. By examining hundreds of such situations, and employing both structural and phenomenological analysis, Sanders explores the various configurations of gang violence. Gangbangs and Drive-bys also examines the routines of gang members and their view of life, the different styles of gangs, and changes undergone by gangs from the early 1980s to the end of the same decade. Over that period, the emphasis shifted from parties and paybacks to big money from the sale of rock cocaine, and from unstructured to organized crime. Along with that shift came an increase in the violence. Finally, Sanders traces the beginning and evolution of a metropolitan police gang unit over the same decade in order to present an inside view of how the police attempt to deal with and understand gangs.
