Seminar paper from the year 2014 in the subject American Studies - Culture and Applied Geography, grade: 1,3, University of Bonn (Anglistik), course: Native American/First Nations Literature and Culture, language: English, abstract: The following paper will deal with the relationship between text and illustrations in Sherman Alexie's novel "The Absolutely True Story of a Part-Time Indian." Sherman Alexie is a Native American, which he prefers to call Indians, and grew up on the Spokane Reservation, which is also the setting in the novel. His novel partially tells his own story which means it is semi-autobiographical. One of the main topics of his novels, and also very present in this novel, is alcoholism, probably because his father had an alcohol problem as well. It is important to mention that Alexie's novel is not a comic in the first place, because it mainly shows single illustrations which contribute to the text's meaning. It is therefore a graphic novel meaning that it is a narrative with occasional pictures with a dominance of verbal elements. However, there are still five actual comics in the book. Not only writing novels but also poems and short stories his novels present the "nobly suffering Indian" (Campbell) but also the "hard reality of urban life" (Campbell) by also telling the hard naked truth about being Indian. Comics have been out there for several decades, but they have not always enjoyed a broad audience. The genre of comics is often readily dismissed as being for children, young male adolescents and even for sub-literates. This marginalized genre is more than that; it offers topics and themes for everyone, varying from fiction to politics, fantasy, erotica, essays, autobiography and many more. As Douglas Wolk puts it: "comics have grown up". As comics went through a long development of experiencing setbacks and success at the same time, today we have shops exclusively for cartoons, comics or illustrations. As modern literature and culture changed into being more visual and less written the genre of comics and illustrations has become more attractive and popular. Moreover since the Marvel and DC comics and especially their remakes as movies such as Spiderman, Thor, Ironman, Captain America, Avengers, Watchmen, Sin City and many more the genre became more accessible for people who have not had a huge interest in comics beforehand. Although comics are drawn and represent a picture "we read comics. [...] holding them in our hands, turning their pages" (Wolk). When in the 1970s the main topics were "simplistic superhero fantasies or violence" (Bongco) the genre today is also dealing with serious topics.

Master's Thesis from the year 2019 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, grade: 2,3, International University of Applied Sciences Bad Honnef - Bonn, language: English, abstract: The consulting report "Identifying a Merger and Acquisition Target" describes the consulting project carried out at the medium-sized German IT service provider ITSERV GmbH. Like many companies in the IT industry, ITSERV experiences major difficulties filling vacancies. As a people business the company's growth is hampered by the lack of skilled IT professionals. Since all opportunities to expand the workforce and to grow organically with more employees are exhausted, the CEO of ITSERV wants to grow externally through a company acquisition. In order to support his M&A efforts with a sound approach, the CEO has sought the help of an external consultant to find out what a suitable takeover candidate for the company should look like. In the course of the ensuing consulting project, various internal and external analyses are conducted to look more closely at the company and its market and to identify development opportunities for the company that could be implemented through an appropriate M&A strategy. The analyses include classic analysis tools such as the SWOT analysis and the portfolio analysis which - where applicable - are supplemented by other suitable methods and models. The results of this determination of ITSERV's status quo provide the basis for the identification of development opportunities for the company. In order to make these usable for ITSERV's management independently of the M&A efforts, general recommendations are formulated in this regard. In order to answer the CEO's original question about suitable acquisition targets, three possible approaches to an M&A strategy along with priorities for the search for takeover candidates are developed, based on the results of the analysis. Moreover, this paper also provides critical considerations concerning ITSERV's way forward with regard to the CEO's M&A efforts such as the importance of considering aspects of corporate culture during due diligence and in the post-merger integration of an acquired company.

Essay from the year 2013 in the subject Business economics - Investment and Finance, grade: 2,0, International University of Applied Sciences Bad Honnef - Bonn, course: Current Issues in Accounting & Finance, language: English, abstract: In the past, key financial instruments were focusing on concepts like the return on investment, return on equity and return on capital employed. However, within recent years, the flaws of the named ratios made it difficult to thoroughly rely on such figures any longer. As one key drawback connected to those solely finance-related ratios was that all non-financial aspects are missed out on. Further, the economic value creation was not respected in past models. EVA®, economic value added, is a concept on the rise that counteracts the flaws of recent financial ratios. By accounting for both the capital charges for investors and creditors, it allows a more sophisticated look into the value creation of a company. However Stern Steward & Co, who founded EVA®, give recommendations, so called adjustments, in order to make EVA® even more effective as it is without. As economic decision are not only covered by introducing a new ratio, it is important to contrast and to integrated EVA® to other frequently used financial models. Here, the net present value calculation is used most when evaluating on whether or not to take on a project. Now, the author shows that EVA® even can be used for net present value calculations, which is usually done by taking into consideration future cash flows. Further, economic profit is not all a modern business has to care about. In this respect, cash management has evolved in becoming a crucial cornerstone in financial management. Hence, the author has compared the cash conversion cycle to the EVA®. The questions is, does liquidity also affect the EVA® result? Finally, the author concludes on whether or not EVA® can be regarded as 'the one financial ratio' an how it interplays with other important models used in modern companies.

Seminar paper from the year 2015 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 2.3, University of Bonn (Institut für Anglistik, Amerikanistik und Keltologie), course: Contemporary British Drama, language: English, abstract: In this paper, Sarah Kane's debut play "Blasted", alongside her proximate plays "Phaedra's Love" and "Cleansed", will be discussed in order to explore the nature of the plays concerning their subject matter. Among these plays, "Phaedra's Love" is the only one that is based on a model and therefore not utterly Kane's content. The story is written loosely after Seneca's version of the Phaedra myth, in which a tragedy arises because the title character falls in love with her royal stepson. Beyond the thematic discussion, the question whether the subjects Sarah Kane connects her plays with are presented in a positive or negative way will be issued in the paper. If there is love in the plays, in how far is it satisfying for the characters? And does strong faith really promise a hopeful ending? In order to answer these questions, the paper is divided into two parts, starting with a short theory chapter, that follows this introduction and provides a brief introduction to in-yer-face theatre in general. Subsequently, one finds the main part of the paper, which consists of three sub-chapters and includes the analysis of each of the named plays. A conclusion of the findings will round the paper off.

Seminar paper from the year 2015 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1.3, University of Bonn (Institut für Anglistik, Amerikanistik und Keltologie), course: Victorian Literature an Culture, language: English, abstract: This paper deals with the use of different spaces in the two Victorian Gothic stories "The Picture of Dorian Gray" and "The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" and compares important places, houses and their meaning for the respective plots. Besides the city of London, which is the common overall setting of both novels and will be discussed in chapter 3, the paper focuses on the house as a traditional space for Gothic fiction and one of the elements that both texts have in common. Preliminarily, the character and meaning of the literal and metaphorical threshold will be made a subject of discussion.A story's setting is an important factor for each literary work. Together with the story time it provides on the one hand a framework for the plot, on the other hand the space around which characters can move more or less freely throughout the story. Literal spaces represent the interaction of different factors, that all characterize the space: among these of course typical place descriptions like nature or architecture of buildings, but also abstract concepts like the weather, light and darkness or countless sensory impressions that a special place can offer, and of course life - human and non-human - that colonizes the space. Literary spaces, however, do not only function as places for actions and happenings but are functionalized in different ways. One purpose of space, that is especially important for Gothic fiction, is to set the mood of the story, which also implies to capture the fears and issues of the respective time and use them to create a certain atmosphere around the plot. During the Victorian era, issues like sciences, especially psychology and the human psyche, were omnipresent. But also urbanisation and thus the metropolis and what may hide in the jungle of houses and streets aroused the fear of many Victorians. Due to this fact, and because of its demography and its great socio-political issues, London is a perfect and likewise popular setting for Victorian Gothic stories. Also Oscar Wilde and a few years later Robert Louis Stevenson chose the metropolis for their Gothic novels "The Picture of Dorian Gray" and "The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde".

Iconicity in brand names. An analysis of TV ads

Seminar paper from the year 2013 in the subject Communications - Public Relations, Advertising, Marketing, Social Media, grade: 2.3, University of Bonn (Institut für Anglistik, Amerikanistik und Keltologie), course: Issues in Linguistic: Semantics, language: English, abstract: Do brand names have an iconic function, or are they rather arbitrary, just like Saussure claimed concerning linguistic signs in general? And if they have an iconic function, does the iconicity of brand names serve its purpose, i.e. do the icons transport the connotation they are supposed to? These questions are going to be answered in this paper with the single focus on phonetic phenomena. "Linguistics and semiotics still labor under the shadow of Saussure (1916), even though throughout the 20th century there have been repeated demonstrations that arbitrariness is quite limited". With this statement, Waugh (1992:7) gets to the heart of a problem which is by far not new but still current. While Saussure worked out the relationship between 'signified' and 'signifier', i.e. between an object and its sign, as arbitrary and therefore totally insignificant, no small number of scientists back the assumption that there are indeed certain meanings behind morphological and phonetic symbols, what builds the base for the entire study of iconicity. Iconicity itself is defined as the connection between an object and its linguistic sign, which is called an 'icon' or 'iconic sign' if the relationship between this object and its sign "depends on similarity [...] or on some relation analogous to similarity" (Hilpinen 2012:267). An icon might include a proper description of the object and therefore transport a certain denotation for exactly this object. This paper, however, makes brands and their iconic (or non-iconic) names a subject of discussion. Brand names are, for certain reasons, by no means denotations, i.e. they do not 'describe' the object, but are supposed to transport a meaning which is of importance for the consumer, and therefore supposed to trigger special connotations with the brand. In other words, the connection between brand name and connotation is important rather than the connection between brand name and product.
