Das bekannteste Herrschergeschlecht des Hochmittelalters 130 Jahre lang herrschten die Könige und Kaiser der Staufer – von 1138 bis 1268. Ein Mythos sind sie bis heute, allen voran die charismatischen Kaisergestalten Friedrich I. Barbarossa und Friedrich II., dessen Reich sich von der Ostsee bis Sizilien erstreckte. Die Zeit der Staufer, das Hochmittelalter, war zugleich die Blütezeit der Ritter und Burgen, Handel und Städtebau boomten. Überragende Persönlichkeiten wie Hildegard von Bingen und Franz von Assisi nahmen Einfluss auf Glauben und Politik, Dichter schrieben geniale Werke wie den »Parzival«. Häufig jedoch war der Alltag geprägt von harten Konflikten: Papst und Kaiser, König und Fürsten rangen um die Macht im Reich. SPIEGEL- Autoren und renommierte Mediävisten geben Einblick in diese bewegte Epoche. Sie porträtieren die staufischen Herrscher, zeigen, wie deren Untertanen lebten, und legen dar, warum die aus dem Schwäbischen stammende Staufer-Dynastie wie kein anderes deutsches Herrschergeschlecht zur Legende wurde. • Ein umfassender Einblick in die Epoche des Hochmittelalters • Kompakte Informationen: Herrscherporträts, Übersichtsdarstellungen, Essays – dazu zahlreiche Grafiken und Abbildungen
O Bitcoin é uma forma de dinheiro, assim como o real, dólar ou euro, com a diferença de ser puramente digital e não ser emitido por nenhum governo. O seu valor é determinado livremente pelos indivíduos no mercado. Você lembra como a internet e o e-mail revolucionaram a comunicação? Antes, para enviar uma mensagem a uma pessoa do outro lado da Terra, era necessário fazer isso pelos correios. Nada mais antiquado.
Você dependia de um intermediário para, fisicamente, entregar uma mensagem. Pois é, retornar a essa realidade é inimaginável. O que o e-mail fez com a informação, o Bitcoin fará com o dinheiro. Com o Bitcoin você pode transferir fundos de A para B em qualquer parte do mundo sem jamais precisar confiar em um terceiro para essa simples tarefa. O Bitcoin é a maior inovação tecnológica desde a internet, é revolucionário, sem precedentes e tem o potencial de mudar o mundo de uma forma jamais vista. À moeda, ele é o futuro. Ao avanço da liberdade individual, é uma esperança e uma grata novidade.

An exhilarating journey of natural renewal through a year with MacArthur fellow Carl Safina Beginning in his kayak in his home waters of eastern Long Island, Carl Safina's The View from Lazy Point takes us through the four seasons to the four points of the compass, from the high Arctic south to Antarctica, across the warm belly of the tropics from the Caribbean to the west Pacific, then home again. We meet Eskimos whose way of life is melting away, explore a secret global seed vault hidden above the Arctic Circle, investigate dilemmas facing foraging bears and breeding penguins, and sail to formerly devastated reefs that are resurrecting as fish graze the corals algae-free. "Each time science tightens a coil in the slack of our understanding," Safina writes, "it elaborates its fundamental discovery: connection." He shows how problems of the environment drive very real matters of human justice, well-being, and our prospects for peace. In Safina's hands, nature's continuous renewal points toward our future. His lively stories grant new insights into how our world is changing, and what our response ought to be.
I know she’s forbidden.
I’ve been warned. But I’m in too deep. Hailee Archer was mine the minute I met her and there’s no way in hell I’m giving her up. Our club is at war, though, and her brother is our greatest ally. He’s made it clear he doesn’t want me anywhere near her. He’s threatened to walk away from our club if he doesn’t get what he wants. What he doesn’t know about me is that I’m a stubborn bastard. I will fucking fight to the bitter end for my family. He wants to threaten me? He can go right the fuck ahead.
He doesn’t stand a chance. This story contains all the panty-melting sexiness and alpha goodness that Nina Levine books are known for. OUT NOW!
