Bio Kai Strauss & The Electric Blues Allstars Kai Strauss zählt zum kleinen Kreis europäischer Bluesmusiker, denen auch amerikanische Kollegen und Kritiker einen authentischen Stil attestieren. Musikalisch aufgewachsen in Deutschlands Blueshochburg Osnabrück, erspielte sich Strauss in den zurückliegenden 25 Jahren einen festen Platz in den Herzen der Bluesgemeinde. ?Schon als Teenager war ich von der Musik von Buddy Guy, B.B. King oder Jimmie Vaughan infiziert.?, sagt der Gitarrist und Sänger, der laut Aussage des Fachmagazins Bluesnews mittlerweile in der europäischen Szene als einer der großen Namen gilt. Vier deutsche Blues Awards (u.a. Bester Gitarrist 2018, Beste Band 2016), TV- Auftritte, Musikmagazincover sowie Konzerte in über 20 Ländern sind bemerkenswerte Eckdaten in Strauss? Karriere. Guter Blues wird genährt durch persönliche Erfahrungen und Leidenschaft. Entscheidende Qualitäten von Kai Strauss, der seinem Instrument die Geschichten entlockt, die das Leben schreibt. ?Strauss spielt mit tiefem musikalischem Verständnis und fügt instinktiv die richtigen Noten und Soli zusammen. Er zeigt den Killerinstinkt, den die alten Meister wie Magic Sam hatten.? urteilt Großbritanniens Blueslegende Otis Grand über das aktuelle 2019er Album ?Live In Concert?.Auf der Bühne ?überzeugt der sympathische Westfale mit sehr viel Ausstrahlung, hat ein gutes Gespür für die Stimmung im Publikum und weiß sie an den richtigen Stellen zum Überkochen zu bringen.? schreibt Rheinpfalz.de, während das Nachrichtenportal eurojournalist.eu sich nicht zurückhält Strauss den Titel ?Deutschlands Blues-Gitarrist der Stunde.? zu geben. Und wie B.B. King sagt auf einer seiner besten Live-Aufnahmen, so gilt dieser Anspruch auch für Kai Strauss und seine international besetzte Band: ?Wir werden unser Bestes geben, um Sie heute Abend zu bewegen ? wenn Sie Blues mögen, denke ich, können wir das.?

There are nearly 1,400 known varieties of wine grapes in the world - from altesse to zierfandler - but 80 percent of the wine we drink is made from only 20 grapes. In Godforsaken Grapes, Jason Wilson looks at how that came to be and embarks on a journey to discover what we miss. Stemming from his own growing obsession, Wilson moves far beyond the “noble grapes”, hunting down obscure and underappreciated wines from Switzerland, Austria, Portugal, France, Italy, the United States, and beyond. In the process, he looks at why these wines fell out of favor (or never gained it in the first place), what it means to be obscure, and how geopolitics, economics, and fashion have changed what we drink. A combination of travel memoir and epicurean adventure, Godforsaken Grapes is an entertaining love letter to wine. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jonathan Horvath.

Sphagnum fimbriatum Wilson is a peat moss species with a bipolar distribution. In Switzerland and other regions of Central Europe it is considered rare whilst it is frequent and abundant in the boreal zone and in the southernmost region of South America. In Europe it normally occupies modified habitats, in South America it grows in primary ecosystems, in minerotrophic bogs. This book gives information about the reproductive biology of S. fimbriatum and the life history traits of this species. Both asexual and sexual reproductions were studied in several ex-situ experiments. Furthermore, Analyses of genetic diversity and structure of populations of S. fimbriatum from both the northern and southern hemispheres using RAPD markers are presented here. Finally, a revision of the situation of S. fimbriatum in European mires is described, with emphasis on the Swiss localities where the species is rare, Information about the conservation status of this species and guidelines towards its preservation are given. This work should especially help people working in conservation programs of mires and should be useful to biology and ecology students and to teachers of population biology

Implications for paleosalinity of fossil habitats 595.The Mesozoic era was an important time in the evolution of chondrichthyan and actinopterygian fishes because it was then that most of the modern groups first entered the fossil record and began to radiate. By the end of the era, many archaic forms had disappeared and the foundation had been laid for the ichthyofauna that now exists. Despite this significant evolutionary change, before 1990 there had been little concerted research done on Mesozoic fishes and no synopsis or compilation of the systematics and paleoecology of Mesozoic fishes had been published, not even for single groups. To remedy this deficiency, Gloria ARRATIA initiated the symposium „Mesozoic Fishes“. The first meeting „Mesozoic Fishes - Systematics and Paleoichthyology“ was held in Eichstätt from August 9 to 12, 1993 and the first volume of Mesozoic Fishes, including 36 papers concerning elasmobranchs, actinopterygians and sarcopterygians and the paleoecology of certain important fossil localities was published in 1996.Gloria ARRATIA and Hans-Peter SCHULTZE organized the second Symposium. It was held in Buckow, a small village about 45 km east of Berlin, from July 6 to 10, 1997.The results of the symposium presented in this volume reflect the current state of knowledge of Mesozoic fishes. Phylogenetic relationships of chondrichthyans and actinopterygians are the central issue. In addition, attention is given to questions of morphology and to the Mesozoic fossil record in a variety of countries such as southern Asia, Chile, China, Italy, Morocco, Spain, and Switzerland. The new findings described in the 31 papers and the disagreements among authors concerning interpretations of characters and phylogenetic relationships of actinopterygian subgroups are an exciting invitation to further research.

When a convicted child killer, released from prison on licence into a small community, goes missing, Inspector Wilson finds that he has not one but two men missing. And who is the dead body found in the boot of the car in the river Cam? How does he relate to the two missing men? As Inspector Wilson and DS Cunningham investigate, the mystery deepens. They have a case on his hands as twisted as a maze, but, as Wilson says, every maze has a centre. And then another small girl is targeted and abducted.

The Enlightenment was based on the use of reason, common sense, and 'natural law,' and was paralleled by an emphasis on feelings and the emotions in religious, especially Pietist circles. Progressive thinkers in England, France, and later in Germany began to assail the absolutism of the state and the orthodoxy of the Church; in Germany the line led from Leibniz, Thomasius, and Wolff to Lessing and Kant, and eventually to the rise of an educated upper middle class. Literary developments encompassed the emergence of a national theater, literature, and a common literary language. This became possible in part because of advances in literacy and education, especially among bourgeois women, and the reorganization of book production and the book market. This major new reference work provides a fresh look at the major literary figures, works, and cultural developments from around 1700 up to the late Enlightenment. They trace the 18th-century literary revival in German-speaking countries: from occasional and learned literature under the influence of French Neoclassicism to the establishment of a new German drama, religious epic and secular poetry, and the sentimentalist novel of self-fashioning. The volume includes the new, stimulating works of women, a chapter on music and literature, chapters on literary developments in Switzerland and in Austria, and a chapter on reactions to the Enlightenment from the 19th century to the present. The recent revaluing of cultural and social phenomena affecting literary texts informs the presentations in the individual chapters and allows for the inclusion of hitherto neglected but important texts such as essays, travelogues, philosophical texts, and letters.Contributors: Kai Hammermeister, Katherine Goodman, Helga Brandes, Rosmarie Zeller, Kevin Hilliard, Francis Lamport, Sarah Colvin, Anna Richards, Franz M.
