Location Notes for "When You Strike and Overcome Him"

Here are the location notes for "When You Strike and Overcome Him."

English/German one word for “in progress”
I'm looking for an English/German word for the term "in progress" (or "in process"). I search for this term in relation to the life cycle of a project, which (in my specific case) are:
• open
• accepted
• in progress
• closed
• rejected
... which would be in German:
• offen
• angenommen
• in Umsetzung
• umgesetzt
(or abgeschlossen)
• abgelehnt

And in strikes my understanding of aesthetic that "in progress" and "in Umsetzung" is a two worder. Do you have anything else to offer? Any help appreciated.

The Technical College of New Jutland was located in the least-inhabited eastern part of Douglas County, Missouri. It's about halfway between the towns of Ava and West Plains, also fairly close to Springfield. Most students came from there, but it also drew some from River City and Kansas City. TCNJ was an expensive for-profit college aimed at upper-middle-class students who could not get into state or private colleges due to poor academic performance, disciplinary problems, or other reasons. Like many for-profit colleges, it had a high rate of dropouts and defaults, but the campus itself was actually quite good. TCNJ went out of business in 2006 due to tightening regulations. Court costs and red tape sent the property into foreclosure, and it sat empty until 2008. The original market value of the campus property was $76.459 million. Carl Bernhardt bought it in a short sale for $.10 on the dollar, for $7,645,900. The campus included the STEMZ Building (Biomedical Engineering, Computer Science, Mechanical Engineering), Forum, Biology Building, Science Complex (Mathematics and Statistics, Physics, Chemistry), and Armstrong Hall (Civil Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Technological Studies). It also had two dormitories to the east of the STEMZ Building (Zeise Residence Hall and Bohr Residence Hall), the Ørsted Administrative Building south of the STEMZ Building, and the Lehmann General Education Building south of the Science Complex. The driving time from Bluehill to the Umsetzung Complex is about 2 1/2 hours.

The technical departments include Engineering (Mechanical Engineering and Civil Engineering), Biology (Botany and Zoology), Science (Astronomy, Chemistry, Physics, and Zetetics), Mathematics (Accounting, Applied Mathematics, Theoretical Mathematics, and Statistics), and Computer Science (Computer Programming, Information Technology, and Technological Studies). Biomedical Engineering is an interdisciplinary major/minor spanning the Engineering and Biology departments. Electrical and Computer Engineering is an interdisciplinary major/minor spanning the Engineering and Computer Science departments. Actuarial Science is an interdisciplinary minor spanning the Mathematics and Science departments. There is also an interdisciplinary STEMZ major/minor that incorporates classes from all of the technical departments. Logic is an interdisciplinary major/minor spanning the Mathematics, Science, and Social Sciences departments. Each department offers a broad major in its field along with several specialized majors, and a matching minor for each major; for instance Biology includes a broad Biology program and specialized programs in Botany or Zoology. Some also offer certificates aimed directly at employment: Engineering (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning; Renewable Energy Technician), Biology (Horticulture and Nursery Work; Lab Animal Management), Science (Laboratory Assistant), Computer Science (Computer Game Development; Computer Installation, Maintenance, and Repair; Cybersecurity; Website Development), Mathematics (Tax Preparation).

TCNJ stands for "Technical College of New Jutland."
Jutland (/ˈdʒʌtlənd/; Danish: Jylland [ˈjylanˀ]; German: Jütland [ˈjyːtlant]), also known as the Cimbric or Cimbrian Peninsula (Latin: Cimbricus Chersonesus; Danish: Den Kimbriske Halvø; German: Kimbrische Halbinsel), is a peninsula of Northern Europe that forms the continental portion of Denmark and part of northern Germany. The names are derived from the Jutes and the Cimbri, respectively. Jutland's terrain is relatively flat, with open lands, heaths, plains and peat bogs in the west and a more elevated and slightly hilly terrain in the east.

See an aerial view of the complex including the Fountain Court. This is the STEMZ Building looking northwest. Here is the view looking southeast. There is a cell block in the basement at each end of the STEMZ Building and the Biology Building. The crosshatched rooms are the showers and the adjacent ones with four benches are the changing rooms. Prisoners are rarely allowed out of their cells to mingle, but there are tables in the central area just in case. The row of empty rooms between the guard tables can be used as holding cells for groups. This is the north stairwell of the STEMZ Building at the first floor. To the right, the stairs go down to the cell block in the basement. To the left, they go up to the second floor. See the first floor plan and the second floor plan. This is the first floor commons and the second floor commons.

This is the first floor plan for the Computer Science department in the STEMZ Building. A computer cluster overlooks the hallway. The research suite offers tables and chairs. The student commons is adjacent to the computer lab.

The STEMZ Building is across the green from the Biology Building. The far side of the Biology Building overlooks the Fountain Court. It includes separate computer labs for students and faculty.

The Chemistry Department is part of the Science Complex-North. See the exterior looking north and the exterior looking south. This is the first floor plan and the second floor plan. The Organic Chemistry Lab has long tables. The Student Commons has whiteboards for sharing ideas. Upstairs, the Super Lab Suite has extensive equipment. The Instrumentation Lab has even more.

The Forum is a glass area connecting the STEMZ Building with the Biology Building. See the exterior looking north and exterior looking northeast. Here is the interior looking northwest and the interior looking southwest.

Zeise Residence Hall has 36 double rooms on each of the four residential floors above the amenities floor, plus a residential advisor in one of the small rectangles on each floor, for a total of 292 beds. This was the men's dorm.

The Bohr Residence Hall has 15 double rooms on the first floor plus singles for the resident advisor and hall director, and 18 double rooms plus the RA single on the second floor, for a total of 69 beds. This was the women's dorm. On the first floor, the fireside rec room in the middle is for noisier social activities, while the two living rooms at the ends are for quieter and/or more solitary activities. On the second floor, the fireside rec room is again for socializing, while the study and sacred space are quieter.

Ørsted Administrative Building has function space in the basement. Studio 1, Studio 2, and the meeting rooms can serve as classrooms. Most of the fine arts classes meet in this area. On the ground floor, the purple room is the physical and emotional first aid center. The first floor has student services on one end and staff offices on the other. On the second floor, the theatre and Academy 3 can serve as lecture halls for large classes. Theatrical classes are held in the theatre, and large music or dance classes in Academy 3, along with the meeting rooms in between.

The Lehmann General Education Building has a big glass foyer. The first floor consists mainly of staff offices, student services, computer stations, and study areas. The far end holds a cafe, a divisible lecture hall, and one classroom. The second floor has 17 classrooms. This building hosted most of the regular classes that didn't belong to one of the major STEMZ fields since those had their own building. What's left was a handful of core classes, general education requirements, and electives. These included Communication, Social Sciences, Humanities, and Fine Arts; the GE requirement was to take one class in each department. The college offered a minor in each of those four fields plus an interdisciplinary minor in General Education that combined all four. One major, Scientific Ethics, included a much larger portion of classes from these departments, and there was also a minor for it that concentrated mainly on Social Sciences and Humanities. Additional minors were available in Science Fiction Writing, Science Fiction Art, and Science Fiction Media. These combined scientific classes with humanities and fine arts, and one of TCNJ's few real successes is that it turned out a number of very capable creators. In addition, these fields offered a few more certificates aimed at gainful employment: Communication (Sign Language Interpretation), Social Sciences (Peer Counseling), Humanities (Cultural Program Management), Fine Arts (Printing and Printmaking), General Education (Office Skills; Small Business Management).
