Beiträge zur Verbraucherforschung (Reihe in 2 Bänden)
Aus Band 1: Die Aufmerksamkeit der Öffentlichkeit wurde lange durch die Privatsphäre in sozialen Netzwerken und das Tracking der Online-Werbewirtschaft gebunden, weil dies die sichtbare Seite des Verbraucherdatenschutzes ist. Die Beiträge des ersten Bandes der "Beiträge zur Verbraucherforschung" rücken einen zukunftsweisenden Trend ins Blickfeld der interdisziplinären Verbraucherforschung und der verbraucherpolitischen Akteure: die Informatisierung des Alltags. Im Zentrum der Beiträge steht die Frage, ob und wie die Datensouveränität der Verbraucherinnen und Verbraucher unter den Bedingungen des Konsums im Internet, der Nutzung digitaler Dienste und in einer vernetzten Welt erhalten, wiederhergestellt oder gestärkt werden kann.

Mit Beiträgen von

Prof. Dr. Britta Böckmann, Prof. Dr. Rainer Böhme und Sebastian Luhn, MSc, Prof. Dr. Georg Borges und Dipl.-Jur. Sascha Adler, Prof. Dr. Ulrich Greveler, Prof. Dr. Artus Krohn-Grimberghe und Prof. Dr. Christoph Sorge.

Walden (AmazonClassics Edition)

At Walden Pond, Henry David Thoreau reflected on simpler living in the natural world. By removing himself from the distractions of materialism, Thoreau hoped to not only improve his spiritual life but also gain a better understanding of society through solitary introspection.

In Walden, Thoreau condenses his two-year, two-month, two-day stay into a single year, using the four seasons to symbolize human development—a cycle of life shared by both nature and man. A celebration of personal renewal through self-reliance, independence, and simplicity, composed for all of us living in “quiet desperation,” Walden is eternal.

Revised edition: Previously published as Walden, this edition of Walden (AmazonClassics Edition) includes editorial revisions.

WALDEN or Life in the Woods (Wisehouse Classics Edition)
WALDEN or, Life in the Woods, by noted transcendentalist Henry David Thoreau, is a reflection upon simple living in natural surroundings. The work is part personal declaration of independence, social experiment, voyage of spiritual discovery, satire, and manual for self-reliance. First published in 1854, it details Thoreau's experiences over the course of two years, two months, and two days in a cabin he built near Walden Pond, amidst woodland owned by his friend and mentor Ralph Waldo Emerson, near Concord, Massachusetts. The book compresses the time into a single calendar year and uses passages of four seasons to symbolize human development.


By immersing himself in nature, Thoreau hoped to gain a more objective understanding of society through personal introspection. Simple living and self-sufficiency were Thoreau's other goals, and the whole project was inspired by transcendentalist philosophy, a central theme of the American Romantic Period. As Thoreau made clear in his book, his cabin was not in wilderness but at the edge of town, about two miles (3 km) from his family home. (more on: www.wisehouse-classics.com)

Python: Programming for Intermediates: Learn the Fundamentals of Python in 7 Days

Do you want to learn Python in an easy and fast way?



Start learning Python right Now!



Welcome to this training for the Kindle edition of Python for Intermediates. This book is going to go more in depth than the previous beginner’s book did in showing you how you can use Python to its fullest advantage.

In the beginner’s book, you learned some of the basic functions of Python and the various pieces of code that you are going to be able to input into Python so that you can make that function work properly. However, in this book, you are going to learn about other functions and pieces of the code that will work with the functions that you already know.
It is here that you are going to be taking another step towards being able to program your own applications, websites, and anything else that you could possibly want to program all with simple blocks of code that you learned from a beginner’s book.
Do not rush into thinking that you are going to be able to write your own computer application just yet. That is going to require that you get through this book and the next one to get a complete understanding of how Python works.

The intermediate level is going to be a level that you may think does not need to be explored because some of it may end up being completely irrelevant to what it is that you are going to do with Python. However, you never know what you are going to find in this book that may just make or break the code that you are completing. So, please do not skip over this book thinking that you are not going to learn something new because I assure you, there is always something new for you to learn even if it is something simple.


Here’s What You’ll Learn From This Python For Intermediates Book:



✓ Chapter 1: Objects in Python
✓ Chapter 2: Object Oriented Programming
✓ Chapter 3: Functions
✓ Chapter 4: Iterator in Python
✓ Chapter 5: Python Generators
