Trends in East-West German Migration from 1989 to 2002
Heiland Frank
Demographic Research , 2004,
Abstract: The purpose of this article is to show recent trends in regional migration from East to West Germany by combining data from the Statistisches Bundesamt from 1991 to 2002 with data from the Zentrales Einwohnerregister der DDR from 1989 to 1990. We document that annual gross outmigration rates peaked at the time of the Reunification, fell sharply thereafter, but rose steadily from the 1997 until 2001 to reach levels obtained prior to the Reunification. While Mecklenburg-Vorpommern and Brandenburg experienced less outmigration before the Reunification compared to Thueringen, Sachsen, and Sachsen-Anhalt, they are the regions that have experienced the highest pace of outmigration since then. With the exception of the increasing popularity of the Berlin region, the distribution of East to West migrants across West Germany is fairly stable over time: migrants continue to favor the large industrial provinces of Baden-Wuerttemberg, Bayern, Nordrhein-Westfalen, and Niedersachsen.
The geographic context of male nuptiality in western Germany during the 1980s and 1990s
Hank Karsten
Demographic Research , 2002,
Abstract: This paper studies the relationship between characteristics of men's place of residence and the probability of entering marriage in western Germany during the 1980s and 1990s. We link micro-information from the German Socio-Economic Panel Study (GSOEP) with district-level data to estimate discrete-time multilevel logit models. Our results support the widely accepted idea about the importance of men's individual economic status in marital decisions. They furthermore indicate a negative relationship between women's aggregate labor force participation and male transition rates to marriage, which could be interpreted as evidence for the popular 'economic independence hypothesis' of marital behavior. Complementary, we put forward an interpretation of female employment rates as indicators of a region's degree of secularization, for example. Consistent with a previous study on female nuptiality in Germany, our findings (which also include a significant latent contextual effect) suggest that a man's propensity to marry is influenced by the regional socio-cultural milieu he lives in.
Insecurities in employment and occupational careers and their impact on the transition to fatherhood in Western Germany
T?lke Angelika,Diewald Martin
Demographic Research , 2003,
Abstract: This paper examines the relationship between work and family among men in Western Germany. We investigate the extent to which a difficult start in working life and insecurities during the working life affect men's transition to fatherhood, and how this effect is influenced by characteristics of the family of origin and the respondents' own relationship history. We use proportional hazards models to analyze data of the third "Familiensurvey" conducted by the German Youth Institute in 2000. In accordance with the spillover hypothesis which assumes that labor market success (or failure) leads to success (or failure) in family behavior as well, we found that under difficult and/or insecure circumstances in their career, men delay their transition to fatherhood. In particular, the delay was related to being unemployed, being self-employed or working part-time. On the other hand, a successful career development increases the propensity to have a child soon after the career step. Contrary to a hypothesis of individualization, the social status and the composition of the family of origin still have an impact on the fertility behavior of men in adulthood. In particular, the transition rate to fatherhood was higher if the man grew up with at least one sibling, while losing a parent through death decreased it. Both employment career and parental home influence the formation of steady relationships, which explains part of their effect on the transition to fatherhood.
Patterns of Technology Transfer in Chinese Hotspots of Innovative Development — The Perspective of the Recipient Firms  [PDF]
Henning Kroll, Esther Schnabl
Chinese Studies (ChnStd) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/chnstd.2014.33012
Abstract: In China, as in other countries, pre-competitive research constitutes the basis of techno-economic development beyond imitation and adaptation. While acknowledging the nation’s concerted efforts to improve the situation, most empirical accounts of science-industry linkages in China remain sceptical about local universities’ ability to meaningfully transfer knowledge and technologies. Against this background, we change perspective and analyse the perceptions of selected technology-oriented firms in Beijing. Interestingly, we find that there is a notable core of technology firms with fairly close linkages to universities and research institutions.
Religiosity/Spirituality and Mental Health: Psychiatric Staff’s Attitudes and Behaviors  [PDF]
Eunmi Lee, Anne Zahn, Klaus Baumann
Open Journal of Social Sciences (JSS) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/jss.2014.211002

Along with the bio-psycho-social model in patient-centered care, religiosity/spirituality (ReS) receives increasing attention from medical communities. Correspondingly, healthcare professionals’ perspectives and their attitudes towards ReS receive increased attention, as their attitudes play a crucial role in the therapeutic process. In this context a nationwide study was conducted at Ger- man university hospitals and confessional clinics to find out what kind of attitudes psychiatrists and nurses have towards ReS in clinical settings. The respondents generally regarded dealing with religious/spiritual issues as appropriate, and also rated themselves to be ready to integrate ReS into therapies. Otherwise, most of the respondents underlined professional neutrality as preventing factor for an integration.

Nietzsche e o renascimento do trágico
Machado, Roberto;
Kriterion: Revista de Filosofia , 2005, DOI: 10.1590/S0100-512X2005000200003
Abstract: the purpose of this article is to discuss nietzsche's theory on the rebirth of the tragic presented in his early writings as part of the german cultural project introduced by winckelmann, goethe and schiller in the second half of the 18th century. departing from the idea that this project established greece as a model to be followed by germany, i will point out nietzsche's supporting views to it as well as his innovative idea of bringing together the philosophy of schopenhauer and the music of wagner to think the greek culture.

Stang, Andreas
GMS Medizinische Informatik, Biometrie und Epidemiologie , 2005,
Abstract: The H ndel School of Modern Epidemiology is dedicated to the education of scientists and students who have a particular interest in modern epidemiologic methods. The school is named after the famous Georg Friederich H ndel who was born in Halle (Saale) in 1685. The H ndel School will be held once per year in October. This year's opening school was given by Prof. Kenneth J. Rothman from Boston University. The course covered several methodological topics that attracted a wide range of scientists and students from seven European countries. The next year's H ndel School lecturer will be Prof. Albert Hofman, Erasmus University, Rotterdam, who will cover modern methods of clinical epidemiology.
