The Friendly Batch Routing (FBR) application uses the Google Maps API to easily and simply gather route data for many origin-destination pairs. FBR is designed with usability in mind so that errors do not interrupt processing and skipped records can easily be resubmitted for processing. Additionally the FBR output can easily be imported into GIS packages. [less ▲]

Considerable formal and – to a lesser extent – material changes in the setup of the European Legal Order in recent years have implicated an unchanged need for a European Legal Tax Order. Legislative constitutional developments entailing both the enlargement to 27 Member States and the further consolidation of the Union, first through the failed attempt of a 'Constitutional Treaty', then through the ratification of the Lisbon Treaty, have to be contrasted with a remarkably changed attitude of the Court of Justice regarding negative integration in the area of (direct) taxation, which increasingly focuses on possible justifications for unequal treatment by the Member States. Both areas of recent developments are considered in this contribution. In particular, it is examined whether the Court of Justice has taken any steps towards the ability to pay principle as a basis for a true European Legal Tax Order. [less ▲]

We assume that Markovian dynamics on a finite graph enjoys a gauge symmetry under local scalings of the probability density, derive the transformation law for the transition rates and interpret the thermodynamic force as a gauge potential. A widely accepted expression for the total entropy production of a system arises as the simplest gauge-invariant completion of the time derivative of Gibbs's entropy. We show that transition rates can be given a simple physical characterization in terms of locally detailed balanced heat reservoirs. It follows that Clausius's measure of irreversibility along a cyclic transformation is a geometric phase. In this picture, the gauge symmetry arises as the arbitrariness in the choice of a prior probability. Thermostatics depends on the information that is disposable to an observer; thermodynamics does not. [less ▲]

Der Aufbau von Problemlösekompetenz ist einerseits Ziel schulischen Lernens, andererseits Voraussetzung für erfolgreiches weiteres Lernen. Die PISA-Studie 2003 erbrachte überraschende Befunde: Schülerinnen und Schüler in Deutschland scheinen über kognitives Potenzial zu verfügen, das beim Lösen fächerübergreifender Problemstellungen sichtbar wird, in den Schulen aber nicht hinreichend genutzt wird, um fachliche Kompetenzen aufzubauen. Zur Prüfung dieser Potenzialausschöpfungshypothese bedarf es einer Analyse der kognitiven Anforderungen der PISA-Aufgaben und Studien zur Modellierung der zu ihrer Lösung erforderlichen Kompetenzen bzw. Kompetenzstrukturen. Es werden zwei Studien zum Lösen analytischer und dynamischer Probleme berichtet, deren Ergebnisse für beide Kompetenzbereiche eine dreidimensionale Kompetenzstruktur nahe legen. Substanzielle Korrelationen der einzelnen Dimensionen, insbesondere mit mathematischnaturwissenschaftlichen Kompetenzen, lassen darüber hinaus erwarten, dass gezielte Maßnahmen zur Förderung einzelner Kompetenzdimensionen auf die Entwicklung dieser fachlichen Kompetenzen transferieren.

If the concept of world literature has, in the past, most often been criticized for its concentration on Western literatures and has hence been opened up to the rest of the world, it is worthwhile to launch a debate on the fate of ‘small’ European literatures, which, per definition, have very little visibility on the international literary scene which results in their relative absence in the canon of world literature. Underlying the concept of world literature is a whole infrastructure based on power relations and power structures – and incidentally it is interesting to note the parallel frequently drawn between the workings of the world economy and world literature – whose management seems primarily to rest with culturally dominant nations. The power relations and power positions allow them a greater contribution to the canon of world literature or so it seems. Despite the debatable generality of this statement, the question remains however whether the deconstruction, re-invention and re-thinking of the concept of world literature has been refigured in a way so as to grant literary works of ‘small’ literatures the possibility to be recognized as or to contribute to world literature? What are on the other hand the conditions for a work of literature to be recognized as world literature? What resources or means do ‘small’ literatures have at their disposal in order for one of their literary works to be one day counted among world literature? How do international literary prizes, as for example the European Prize for Literature, further the cause of ‘small’ literatures? In this paper, these general questions will be examined in relation to the case of Luxembourg’s literatures in Luxemburgish, French and German. [less ▲]

Si l’on admet que la littérature migrante transcrit la mondialisation et l’interpénétration des langues et des cultures par le biais de figures identitaires et esthétiques inédites, il y a lieu de s’interroger de plus près sur les pratiques scripturales qui lui sont propres. Dans cet article, nous nous proposons d’analyser la poétique de l’effaçonnement, soutènement de l’écriture de l’écrivain luxembourgeois d’origine italienne Jean Portante. Avec des textes choisis à l’appui, notamment des essais et le roman autofictionnel Mrs Haroy ou la mémoire de la baleine (1993), différents aspects de cette poétique seront examinés, à commencer par son rôle dans l’appréhension que ce poète-écrivain peut avoir de sa langue d’expression littéraire étrangère. Nous procédons ensuite à l’étude du roman autofictionnel pour la voir à l’œuvre dans la narrativisation de la mémoire dans le récit de soi. Les pratiques scripturales employées par Portante pour mettre en texte la mémoire interculturelle du migrant feront l’objet de notre conclusion. [less ▲]

Inventors often experience a low productivity after their company has been subject to a merger or acquisition (M&As). It is of central managerial interest to identify factors facilitating the integration of new inventive staff and thereby counteracting innovation declines after M&As. This paper provides empirical evidence into the role of acquiring firms’ absorptive capacity for the post-merger patent productivity of the acquired inventors. Based on a sample of 544 inventors employed by European acquisition targets in the period 2000–2001 it is shown that the post-merger productivity of acquired inventors is significantly higher within acquiring firms with a distinct absorptive capacity. It can be concluded that absorptive capacity is a firm capability that enhances the integration of inventors after firm takeovers. [less ▲]

The article examines instances of "complex discrimination" in tax laws and proposes a solution for these cases on the basis of a normative understanding of the common non-discrimination provision in bilateral tax treaties as a specific equality standard, which suggets the combined sequential application of the various non-discrimination rules typically contained in that provision. The result of this approach is a readily available solution for taxpayers who are subjected to 'complex' forms of discrimination that would not otherwise appear to be addressed in Article 24 of the OECD Model Tax Convention (and the tax treaties based on this model), without the need to amend the existing legal framework.
