Sainte-Laguë Method
50,40 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The Sainte-Laguë method of the highest average (equivalent to Webster's method or divisor method with standard rounding) is one way of allocating seats proportionally for representative assemblies with party list voting systems. It is named after French mathematician André Sainte-Laguë. The Sainte-Laguë method is closely related to the D'Hondt method, although without the latter's favoritism for larger parties. The Sainte-Laguë method is used in New Zealand, Norway, Sweden, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Latvia, Kosovo, and Germany (on federal level for the Bundestag, on state level for the legislatures of Baden-Württemberg, Hamburg, and Bremen). It was also used in Bolivia in 1993, in Poland in 2001, and in the elections to the Palestinian Legislative Council in 2006. Modified version of this method was also used to allocate the Proportional Representation (PR) seats in the Constituent Assembly poll of Nepal in 2008.

ggf. zzgl. Versand

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! A staycation (also spelled stay-cation, stacation, or staykation) is a neologism for a period of time in which an individual or family stays at home and relaxes at home or takes day trips from their home to area attractions. Staycations have achieved high popularity in the US during the financial crisis of 2007?2010 in which unemployment levels and gas prices were high. Staycations also became a popular phenomenon in the UK in 2009 as a weak pound made overseas holidays significantly more expensive. The term was added to the 2009 version of the Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary

Voivodeship
40,10 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! A voivodeship, also spelled voivodship, voivodina or vojvodina was originally the military commander next to the ruler. Contemporarily, the term is used for the województwa (preferably translated as "provinces") of Poland, of which there are currently 16. There is also an autonomous province of Vojvodina in Serbia. The word "voivodeship" appears in some of the larger English dictionaries, such as the OED and Webster's Third New International Dictionary, although it is not in common usage. Depending on the context, historical voivodeships may also be referred to as "duchies," "provinces," "palatinates," "administrative districts," or "regions."

Regime
39,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The word regime (occasionally spelled "régime") refers to a set of conditions, most often of a political nature. It may also be used synonymously with regimen, for example in the phrases "exercise regime" or "medical regime". In politics, a regime is the form of government: the set of rules, cultural or social norms, etc. that regulate the operation of government and its interactions with society. For instance, the United States has one of the oldest regimes still active in the world, dating to the ratification of its Constitution in 1789. Although modern usage often gives the term a negative connotation, like an authoritarian one, Webster's definition clearly states that the word "regime" refers simply to a form of government.

James Webster (musicologist)
29,90 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. James Webster is a musicologist, specializing in the music of Joseph Haydn and other composers of the classical era. His professional position is as the Goldwin Smith Professor of Music at Cornell University. He has published several books in his field, including a massive study of Haydn's "Farewell" Symphony and (with Georg Feder) the Haydn article in the current edition of the New Grove, spun off as a separate book. Webster's work is notable for its scholarly care, particular his willingness to sift through and assess conflicting sources of historical evidence. His biography of Haydn particularly reflects this tendency, and unlike several earlier Haydn biographers, he is generally unwilling to fill in the narrative with conjecture, particularly conjecture about how Haydn must have felt or what he must have done on some particular occasion. Webster is also an impassioned devotee of the earlier works of Haydn, and has consistently asserted his opposition to the views of Charles Rosen and others who assert a course of "progress" and learning through the composer's career.
