Everyday we read in newspapers, that the unemployment in Austria increases or falls, that the government has to do "Sparpakete" because they can not afford so much social costs anymore. In a TRADE CYCLE you can see how well the economy is.
As you see in the graph the trade cycle begins with revival, recovery and expansion of a depression time period, where the economie wasn't so well. The business activities st ... mehr
Amnesty International was launched in 1961 by Peter Benenson, a British lawyer, after reading about two Portuguese students who had been sentenced to seven years\' imprisonment for raising their glasses in a toast to freedom.

Austria has made a significant contribution to advances in the fields of science and technology. It must be said, however that the achievements of our scientists, engineers, technologists and inventors have not always received the same degree of public acclaim as the work of Austria's great cultural figures. This lead to the fact that most of the famous Austrian scientists had almost no chance to become as well known as their colleges in the Unit ... mehr
Why do we need international trade? Because of the different climate or rough materials. If you want to have bananas you can buy Austrian, but if there are Austrian ones, they are very expensive. So we have to import bananas from a country in which they can be produced cheaper. Even if we need rough materials, which we do not have in Austria, we have to buy them from elsewhere.
Different stages of education cause that not every country can pr ... mehr
The History of the Internet
In the year 1969 the Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA) assigned the US Ministry of Defence to create a computer net, which should firstly ensure the communication in case of a nuclear attack and secondly enable the collaboration between several research institutes.
The ARPANET was created that way and was soon the link between several American universities.
How we experience the Internet nowadays cannot be ... mehr

Then you require a modem, an ISDN - hostadapter or a connection to Teleweb. Modem stands for modulator and demodulator, ISDN stands for Integrated ... mehr
0.1 What´s the Internet?
That question is rather difficult to answer because the Internet is so many things to so many different people. It\'s simply a series of computer networks linked together all over the world, communicating almost all the time with one another.
A single network of computers, is for example, all the computers linked together within our school building. The Internet consists of thousands of these networks communicating t ... mehr
The history of King Lear and his three daughters is an old British legend.
In his interpretation Shakespeare takes different sources; the main character is supposed to be taken from "The True Chronicle History of King Leir". It is very odd for Shakespeare's way of writing that the plot changes so abrupt and all of a sudden. He abridges and concentrates the main plot and develops the material of a relatively irrelevant play into a tragedy, th ... mehr

This is a love story but not an ordinary one since it describes the lives of four people who are ralated to one another. The plot describes four lives in two decades but these are built up chronologically. The action is quite complex since the reader does not know how the different characters are related to one another, this turns out step by step and only in the ending one can understand the whole relationship of the characters, ... mehr
2.2.1. The Song's Background / What is a Green Beret ?
Before taking a look at Barry Sadler´s lyrics it is necessary to explain what exactly is a Green Beret .They are a " breed apart , a cut above the rest , fighters of uncommon mental and physical caliber. Mature , highly skilled , and superbly trained , they are ready to serve anywhere at any time."
They are usually referred to as the absolute elite within the army . Deployed on ev ... mehr
2.1. Bob Dylan´s "Blowing in the Wind"
2.1.1. The song's History
The inspiration for this song is believed to have come to Bob Dylan´s mind one afternoon in April 1962 , during a long political discussion with friends . As the conversation petered out in silence , Dylan was suddenly struck by the thought that there were severe problems in the U.S.A. of his time ,the Western world , respectively.
He had known this for a long time th ... mehr
Indeed "Romeo and Juliet" is the most popular drama of William Shakespeare. This tragic lovestory touches many humans nad is been the original for lots of movies. I want to take a closer look on the second scene of the second act - the so-called balcony scene which concludes the second meeting of Romeo and Juliet. Both are very excited emotionally.
The scene begins with the advance of Romeo at Juliet´s balcony and his secret observation of J ... mehr

Into the Interior!
The end of the 18-century mapped Ausralia´s coastline. There were many theories about what could be on the other side of the Blue Mountains. Some people thought, the land was rich and fertile. But others believed it was dry and marshland. A telegraph line was needed to set up a connection with Australia to the rest of the world. The first men suffered terrible hardships and some lost their lives. In 1859 the government of Aus ... mehr
