at Yale University. Along his retirement in 2009, he published his major life-time book "Islam's Predicament with Cultural Modernity". *A Spanish language version, produced in Mexico by TV Azteca and Sony Pictures Television International, debuted in 1998 under the title ''Una familia con Ángel'' starring Laura Luz and Daniel Martínez. It was broadcast in the U.S. on the Telemundo network. *Though the show had been broadcast in Germany in a dubbed version as '''Wer ist hier der Boss?'' since 1992 on RTL Television, a year later, the channel produced 15 early episodes with a German cast. The show was called ''Ein Job fürs Leben'' (''A Life's Job''). Tony was renamed Vito, an Italian guest worker (Gastarbeiter) from Berlin-Neukölln (Neukölln) and former striker of soccer club Hertha BSC. Angela Bower was renamed Barbara Hoffmann. Their home was located in Hamburg's upscale suburb Othmarschen. Despite these little changes, the original scripts were used for shooting, and even the stage set was an almost identical replica of the original American set, with only minor details changed, such as paintings and bric-a-brac in German style. RTL Television gave the same treatment to ''Married... with Children''. The two shows shared the first hour on Thursdays in the prime time slot from 8:15 pm to 10:15 pm. *In 2005, the Argentinian network Telefé also made its own local version called ''¿Quién es el Jefe?'', a direct translation of the original American title It starred Nicolás Vázquez, Gianella Neyra and Carmen Barbieri in the adult roles.

The Teutonic Order wore a white coat embroidered (embroidery) with a black cross with gold insert and black imperial eagle. The combination of the black and white colours with the white and red Hanseatic (Hanseatic League) colours of the free cities Bremen, Hamburg, and Lübeck (Free City of Lübeck) as well as of Brandenburg resulted in the black-white-red commercial flag of the North German Confederation, which became the flag of the German Empire in 1871.
