PISA 2001 revealed that German students are missing several competencies in reading, writing and math. The students social background was one main reason for such inadequacies. The following questions arise: “Which actions should be initiated to prevent such outcomes?”, “Do physical activations generally influence pupils learning development?”, “Which benefits has sports in full-day schools?” Those are some of the questions which this paper tries to find answers to.
"Sie sitzen daheim und denken sich Geschichten aus". The Representation of Authorship in Daniel Kehlmann's Literary Works
Daniel Kehlmann is considered one of the major writers not only of the German-language book market. His best seller Measuring the World has been translated into over forty languages, the novel Tyll is soon to be a Netflix series. Based on the assumption that writer figures can contribute to the reflection about literature and the relation between author, narrator and characters, this thesis examines the representation of authorship in Kehlmann’s literary works. Tracing the most common concepts of authorship, the text explores Kehlmann’s ways of portraying literary production and compares them with his own poetological statements. In this context, it also gives insights into Kehlmann’s handling of metafiction and intertextuality and demonstrates in which ways the dualism of reality and fiction affects the genesis of authorship.

Due to their integration into a state planning and financing system, which is subject to frequent changes, hospitals require a high degree of flexibility to be able to provide cost-effective health care in the long term. This forces recurrent organizational changes in the organization, which can also have an impact on the activities of the chief physicians working there. Such changes can result, for example, from the progressive shift from inpatient to outpatient services, mergers entail other organizational concepts and can have consequences concerning the place of work. Furthermore, chief physicians may have to give up beds when centers are formed. Government regulations for minimum quantities can force reductions in services, and a new medical concept decided on by the hospital management can also lead to a change in the allocation of service provision.

The article describes the canonical fight between pugnacious Protestant pastor Paul Schempp and the bishop of the Protestant regional church in Stuttgart. Paul Schempp, who was born on January 4th, 1900, was dismissed from his position as a teacher of religion at the beginning of the Nazi era after having declared that, one now had to pay attention that the gospel of the Kingdom of God would not suddenly become a gospel of the Third Reich. He then became a priest in Iptingen in Württemberg from 1933 to 1942. His dispute with the bishop concerned, on the one hand, the internal church constitution. He rejected the forced collection of church taxes as unevangelical. On the other hand, he vehemently opposed, in word and writing, the arrangement of his regional church with the Nazi government. In particular, he strictly rejected the planned oath of allegiance to Adolf Hitler. Thereby He also sharply attacked the bishop personally. In 1942, he eventually left the Protestant regional church.
"Humans don't care about microbes - we would do well to see illness more as an ecological problem".Eduard Kaeser is a physicist and graduated philosopher born in 1948 in Bern, Switzerland. Thematically, his writing revolves around two centres of gravity: the possibility of anthropology - a humanly possible life - in a world of devices; and the possibility of a liveable universalism in a multiculturally fragmented world (book publication planned: Über interkulturelle Zivilisiertheit). He works as a teacher, freelance publicist, and jazz musician. 2018 has been published by Schwabe-Verlag: "Trojan horses of our time. Critical Essays on Digitalization".
Today, many decisions in politics and economy rely on statistics, scientific reports and market research. However, how reliable are those results of research? This issue, we are able to assess best if we have performed research ourselves. On this note, learning by research should revolutionize academic teaching: Learning by self-contained and independent research. This principle, not only students and graduates but also universities have to arrange for. This article offers an overview of the concept and implementation of learning by research.

While uncertainty, incertitude, unknown and nescience is not only an accepted but favoured attitude within scientific debates, it is less allowed in science communication to and with society. In science communication, still affirmative messages are expected and thus delivered. The societal expectation against scientific messages obviously was and is transformed into an inner expectation of scientists against themselves. The paper - after giving an overview on the lively discussion about scientific uncertainty and nescience (landscapes of uncertainties) - presents a new tool for the communication of scientific uncertainties in "Maps of Uncertainties". These maps are a new inverse form of infographics, which shall allow a different communication of uncertainties and thus a different science-society-relation. The paper presents and discusses six exemplary maps.
