Master's Thesis from the year 2017 in the subject English - Literature, Works, grade: 1,3, University of Bonn (Anglistik, Amerikanistik und Keltologie), language: English, abstract: The introductory chapter provides a brief retrospection of the "Sherlock Holmes phenomenon" in Doyle's times and in our days. It also offers some important background information on the rise of detective-mystery stories and the socio-political circumstances that necessitated the emergence of a figure like Holmes in the literary scene.Chapter 2 elaborates on three different levels of deception in "The Hound of the Baskervilles". On one occasion, deception can be said to be synonymous to superstition because it results from lack of observation or sufficient scientific knowledge in order to explain the inexplicable. This type of deception is classified as such due to the constantly advancing scientific achievements, the questioning and decline of Christian faith during the Victorian era, the triumph of rationality over superstition and the more systematic examination of various peculiar phenomena.To a certain degree, Doyle represents all these because he is a man of science and knows how to "enlighten" or teach the public of his times by using scientific insights and some far-fetched observations and deductions which are performed by his hero. On another occasion, deception is bound to Watson's narrating style. Finally, the third and most explicit type is part of the story's plot. Holmes, on the one hand, lies to Watson and deceives him in order to confront the upcoming danger in utmost secrecy. There is no evil intention here. On the other hand, Jack Stapleton, who represents an impious fraud and wants to gain for his own sake deceives in order to fulfil his crime. His evil intentions render him the main source of deception by means of disguising himself, his wife and his hound so that they look much different than what they are in reality.Finally, chapter 3 provides some thoughts and conclusions about reading pleasure and reader expectations, but also some critical "rules" that pertain to the reader's involvement in the story. Those "rules" of the later Golden Age of detective fiction were proposed by famous authors, mainly Father Ronald Knox, Raymond Chandler and S. S. Vine, who talked about 'honesty' to the reader, various aesthetic values and the chance to enable a parallel solving of the mystery along with the detective. Nevertheless, a recent approach to this puzzle-solving aspect shows how impossible it is to solve Conan Doyle's mysteries by following certain clues and to arrive at fixed solutions. Examples are offered.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2014 im Fachbereich Informatik - Wirtschaftsinformatik, Note: 1,3, Universität Mannheim, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: The objective of this paper is to provide a literature review on the current state of research on software product types in the information systems and software engineering literature. In particular, this paper provides an overview of currently developed software types by examining existent taxonomies and classification approaches in this field. Additionally, taxonomy development procedures will be analyzed, and it will be investigated whether there exists a well-recognized taxonomy development procedure in information systems and software engineering.Nowadays, more and more problems in business and in everyday life are solved by software. While our grandparents know almost all the streets they live in by heart, our generation uses navigation software on mobile devices to get from one place to another place that is only a few kilometers away. 20 years ago, nobody could imagine such a digital world we are living in today. Probably nobody would believe that a supercomputer (IBM's Watson) would ever beat human beings in the Jeopardy television show.With considerable improvements and innovations in technology in the recent years, the software industry has seen many changes and has made substantial advancements. New software development techniques, procedures and capabilities have evolved. Moreover, the variety of types of software products has further diversified and application areas of software both in business and in the private sector have immensely expanded. For instance, real-time data processing applications and software for big data analytics have gained high importance to face the trend of big data in today's business environment.The increasing number of software types, however, increases the research efforts of researchers as long as newly developed software types are not well classified. Appropriate taxonomies are important in research and practice since the structurization of objects helps researchers and practitioners understand similarities, differences and relationships within complex fields and consequently facilitates research. Grimshaw (1996) formulated this problem very appropriately: "The lack of a commonly agreed taxonomy raises the barriers to entry to the subject of information systems and potentially leads to a waste of energies chasing the same thing by a different name."

For ten years, a U.S. Navy sailor, code-name PYTHON, spies for the Soviets. All U.S. intelligence agencies continually fail at their attempts to discover the identities of PYTHON and his Soviet Controller. Then, a dead body and U.S. classified messages are found in a wrecked car at the bottom of a ravine near Madrid. The messages are traced to a U.S. Navy warship. The Defense Intelligence Agency and The Office of Naval Intelligence fail to uncover PYTHON's identity and activities aboard the warship. Dissatisfied and frustrated over the string of failures to find PYTHON, The Chief of Naval Operations permits ONI to implement a bold and unconventional program for recruiting ONI counterintelligence agents. ONI's Lieutenant Commander Brad Watson recruits a young sailor named Rigney Page to find PYTHON. At first, Rigney Page sees his mission as just one of life's adventures to satisfy self-serving needs. Then, he discovers another side of himself. During his search for PYTHON, he meets several women who teach him about commitment and tolerance and who elevate his sexual senses to higher levels. Rigney's adventure takes him to a Navy Guided Missile Cruiser that is on patrol in the Mediterranean. He renews and old friendship, and he makes some sinister enemies. His search for PYTHON comes to a brutal confrontation in a quiet beach town in southern Italy.

Most Secret

Orford Ness was so secret a place that most people have never heard of it. The role it played in inventing and testing weapons over the course of the twentieth century was far more significant and much longer than that of Bletchley Park. Nestled on a remote part of the Suffolk coast, Orford Ness operated for over eighty years as a highly classified research and testing site for the British military, the Atomic Weapons Reserach Establishment and, at one point, even the US Department of Defence. The work conducted here by some of the greatest 'boffins' of past generations played a cruicial role in winning the three great wars of the twentieth century: the First, Second and the Cold. Hosting dangerous early night flying and parachute testing during the First World War, the ingenious radar trials by Watson Watt and his team in the 1930s, through to the testing of nuclear bombs and the top-secret UK-US COBRA MIST project, the 'Ness' has been at the forefront of military technology from 1913 to the 1990s. Now a unique National Trust property and National Nature Reserve, its secrets have remained buried until recently. This book reveals an incredible history, rich with ingenuity, intrigue and typical British inventiveness.
