Video games have been labeled a male space, and playing video games an activity created by men and for men (Fox & Tang, 2014; see also Lange & Schwab, this volume). The present chapter analyses the typical roles of male and female video game characters, their presentation in games, their effects, and how players perceive these characters. To this end, gender in video games will be analyzed on different levels. Although women and men share the same overall interest in playing video games as a medium for entertainment, they differ substantially with regard to genres and game titles they prefer. These gender differences have been attributed to the overrepresentation of male characters in video games, uninviting game contents that strongly rely on competition and physical aggression, and the stereotypical portrayal and scripted behavioral patterns of hyper-masculine or “macho” male and sexualized female game characters. The issue of gender portrayals in video games will be discussed in the light of theoretical considerations on evolved dispositions that differ by sex versus the social structural account that attributes sex differences to the differing placement of women and men in the social structure. It will be argued that both theoretical approaches make similar predictions regarding gender-specific video game preferences. [less ▲]

This paper aims to investigate the concept, context and socio-economic consequences of fiscal competition in the integrated economic space of EMU in completion, to pinpoint the positive and negative factors at work via a case study of the Benelux countries – both founder members of the EU and pioneers of EMU – and to examine the impact on European and international regulations in the field. In particular, it will endeavour to provide a comprehensive interpretation of fiscal policy in the Benelux countries via a comparative approach and from a historical perspective. It will look at the development of respective domestic fiscal policies, driven by national interests and by membership of a Community that is subject to requirements in terms of harmonisation and taxation, but also by constant contact (and frequent clashes) with the multilateral international environment.

It is commonly known that experiencing conflict can have negative impact on an individuals’ physical and mental health. Especially in intimate relationships, conflict has great influence on the well-being of both partners. Since intercultural intimate relationships are associated with both exceptional obstacles and benefits, conflict behavior in those relationships is of substantial interest in this research project. The aim of this study is to investigate how conflicts in intimate relationships are affected by the partners’ cultural backgrounds and linguistic barriers. It further seeks to unravel how conflict resolution is approached in order to provide a broader knowledge base in this field. For the purpose of this research, four semi-structured interviews with two couples were conducted individually. Each couple was interviewed by a different researcher. Ensuing, the interviews were transcribed and afterwards the data was analyzed implementing qualitative content analyses. The results provide insight into different levels of relationship functioning, sources of conflict as well as conflict resolution. Therefore, the findings of this study may have important implications for clinical practice. [less ▲]

„Die Liebe verwundet, die Liebe fesselt, die Liebe macht krank, die Liebe lässt schwach werden.“ Dieser ursprünglich theologisch geprägte Gedanke über die Gewalt der Liebe, lässt sich – auf seinen bildlichen Kern reduziert – in zahllosen Varianten in der Weltliteratur aufspüren. Eine besonders auffällige Form scheinen dabei jene Texte zu bieten, die Liebe nicht allein als Auslöser, sondern gar selbst als Krankheit darstellen – zumindest implizit, insofern der Zustand des Verliebtseins mit dem Zustand der Krankheit gleichgesetzt wird. Wohl bekannt sind die körperlichen Symptome dieses Liebeszustandes, die in ihrer klassischen Ausprägung im Erbleichen, Erröten, Zittern, in Sprachlähmung sowie im Bluten aus der Nase bestehen und im Mittelalter als minnesiech bezeichnet werden. Erscheint die Liebeskrankheit im Minnesang noch vornehmlich in metaphorischem Gebrauch (s. das gequälte Herz als Beispiel für den Schmerz der Minne), weisen spätere Wörterbucheinträge (vgl. hierzu die Lemmata ‚Liebesfieber’ oder ‚Jungfernkrankheit’) wiederum auf ein stärker körperlich-physiologisches und auch sexuell-erotisches Verständnis von Liebe hin. Krank macht die Minne nun vor allem – und dem mittelalterlichen medizinischen Duktus der Humoralpathologie folgend – dann, wenn das körperliche Begehren nicht befriedigt werden kann. Der hier skizzierte Vortrag will die Vorstellung von Krankheit in einem größeren semantischen Beziehungsgeflecht in den Blick nehmen, das sich in der mhd. Lyrik in bedeutender Weise hervortut: der Verbindung Liebe – Krankheit – Wahn. Der wân als zentrales Symptom der Minnekrankheit löst – so die hier zu erprobende These –den Geist vom versehrten Körper und definiert damit den Übergang von der körperlichen Krankheit(smetapher) zu einer seelischen Zustandsbeschreibung. Die sprachhistorische Herleitung von mhd. wân vermag diese Beobachtung weiter zu untermauern, insofern der Begriff ein zunächst wertneutrales, semantisch vielfältiges Bedeutungsspektrum impliziert, und sich mit ‚Hoffnung, Zuversicht oder Einbildungskraft’ ins Nhd. übertragen ließe. Im krankhaften Minne-wân öffnen sich Denkräume, denen der Minnesang eine literarische Ausgestaltung verleiht; Minne-wân führt damit nicht nur zu körperlicher Versehrtheit, sondern ist eben auch guoter wân, lieber wân, saelden wân – und damit einer der ersten ‚Testräume’ für die Erprobung gedanklicher Spielarten des lyrischen Ichs in der deutschen Dichtung überhaupt.

Gravel wash mud (GWM), a waste product from gravel mining was dried and processed into a fine powder to be activated by different concentrations of sodium hydroxide (NaOH) solutions for the synthesis of an alkali-activated binder. The GWM powders were thermally treated at five different calcination temperatures 550, 650, 750, 850 and 950°C. The characterisation of the raw material comprises the particle size distribution (PSD) by laser granulometry, the chemical and mineralogical composition by X-ray fluorescence and X-ray diffraction analysis respectively, and simultaneous thermal analysis. The performance of the alkali-activated binders was examined using compression strength tests and the microstructure was observed using scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The GWM was classified as an aluminosilicate raw material with kaolinite and illite as main clay minerals. Furthermore, a mean particle size around 6.50μm was determined for the uncalcined and calcined GWM powders. The SEM images of the developed binders showed the formation of a compact microstructure, however, relatively low strengths were achieved. This preliminary study highlights an example of an aluminosilicate prime material, which shows very promising chemical and mineralogical characteristics, but its suitability for alkaline activation without further additives was not confirmed as far as performance-based criteria are considered.

In the present paper, a model-based fault/attack tolerant scheme is proposed to deal with cyber-threats on Cyber Physicals Systems. A common scheme based on observers is designed and a state feedback control based on an event-triggered framework is given with control synthesis and condition on the switching time. An event-based implementation is proposed in order to achieve novel security strategy. Observer and controller gains are deduced by solving su cient Bilinear Matrix Inequality (BMI) condition. Simulation results on a real-time laboratory three tank system are given to show the attack-tolerant control ability despite data deception attacks on both actuators and sensors. [less ▲]
