English summary: Simon Gerdemann explores the origins, characteristics and ramifications of whistleblowing laws in the United States, analyzes the consequences the current rise and adoption of whistleblowing laws has on European countries like Germany and shows how learning from past experiences in the United States could shape the whistleblowing laws of tomorrow. German description: "Whistleblowing" - wohl kein anderer englischsprachiger Rechtsbegriff kann in den letzten Jahren auf eine vergleichbare Karriere sowohl in der offentlichen Diskussion und internationalen Wirtschaftspraxis als auch der deutschen Rechtswissenschaft und Rechtspolitik zuruckblicken.Simon Gerdemann geht den Ursprungen und Hintergrunden des modernen Whistleblowingrechts in den USA aus historischer, empirischer und rechtsdogmatischer Perspektive auf den Grund. Er zeigt auf, wie Whistleblowing uber Landes- und Rechtsgebietsgrenzen hinweg seinen Weg nach Deutschland gefunden hat, welche aktuellen Folgen seine Diskussion und Adaption fur das deutsche Arbeits-, Gesellschafts-, Datenschutz- und Verwaltungsrecht haben und wie man die Erfahrungswerte aus 150 Jahren der Geschichte des Whistleblowingrechts in den USA nutzen kann, um die Zukunft des Whistleblowings in Deutschland sinnvoll zu gestalten.
Marie Sklodowska Curie, Trägerin des Nobelpreises für Physik und für Chemie, untersuchte die von Henri Becquerel beobachtete Strahlung von Uranverbindungen. Gemeinsam mit ihrem Mann Pierre entdeckte sie das Radium und das Polonium und prägte den Begriff „radioaktiv“. Ihre Forschungsergebnisse fasste sie in ihrer hier vorliegenden Dissertation zusammen, die innerhalb eines Jahres in fünf Sprachen übersetzt wurde. Sorgfältig bearbeiteter Nachdruck der deutschsprachigen Ausgabe aus dem Jahr 1904.
The editors work from the perspective of community colleges (Bronx and Nassau) with strong curricula in these fields. This is an annotated bibliography of some 1,000 books and nonprint materials that have been reviewed by or used by faculty. The books cited in the nursing section of Brandon-Hill are mostly here. Each entry lists title, author or producer, distributor and/or publisher, data and description, and a summary evaluation of the contents. Nonprint items indicate program format, running time, series title, and accompanying materials. Designations indicate audiences as nursing, allied health, or patient. Included titles were in print at the time of compilation. The binding is frail for a reference promising to be in heavy use. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
